Chapter 239: Disk Array Video
Yi Yun walked back to his seat with everyone in the arena looking at him.
At this moment, a weak voice came from the stage, “Yi…Yi Yun…”
Yi Yun paused and turned around. It was Qiuniu. He could no longer speak loudly as Yi Yun’s saber had cut open his chest, causing him to have trouble breathing.
“That move…Where did you learn it…?” Qiuniu said every word with difficulty. Even though the doctors advised Qiuniu not to speak, it fell on deaf ears.
“A few days ago, an elderly person took me somewhere to learn it.” Yi Yun did not hide the fact. However, he did not mention the ancient tomb as it was a secret that there was an ancient tomb under the Tai Ah Divine City and many people did not know this secret.
“A few days…” Qiuniu suddenly recalled Yi Yun’s disappearance for the past few days and gave a wry smile, “I see…You disappeared for a few days…to gain understandings about the saber…”
It only took him a few days to learn such a horrifying saber technique?
It was unimaginable…
“What is the saber move’s name…?” Qiuniu asked again. When Yi Yun had used the move, he did not shout out the move’s name like Qiuniu.
Yi Yun faltered slightly before replying, “Reigning Supreme!”
This was Yi Yun’s naming of the saber move. This was because this move was created from understanding the Saber Truth’s 32 Words’ “Reigning Supreme”.
Be it Qiuniu or the many cultivators in the Divine City audience, no one recognized the move. All they knew was Yi Yun’s saber move was terrifying.
“Reigning Supreme…Good move!”
Qiuniu did not say anything else as he was carried out of the arena by the doctors on a stretcher.
Qiuniu’s defeat and his serious injury meant he could no longer battle the veteran cultivator who was ranked 2800. As for Qiuniu’s ranking, it had dropped to 10,003 due to his defeat against Yi Yun.
But this did not affect Qiuniu’s rookie ranking as the rookie ranking competition ranked every rookie according to the highest ranking they achieved throughout all their matches.
So, Qiuniu would end up being ranked third and now, Yi Yun was ranked second amongst the rookies!
And he still had three more challenges remaining!
Who was he going to challenge next? Would he be challenging a high-ranking veteran cultivator or Chu Xiaoran?
After thinking about this, many people’s hearts started to race. No matter who Yi Yun challenged, it would no doubt be an interesting match!
At this moment, in the central divine tower…
Cang Yan and Elder Jian Ge were playing chess once again. These two old men had brewed a pot of tea. They played chess and at the same time, they enjoyed the tea. It was not easy for the two of them to progress any further, so they began leading an idle life. The two of them would end up playing chess for many days at a time.
As for the rookie ranking competition, they would only occasionally pay attention to it, while they played chess. The rookie ranking competition was not a big deal to people of their level.
Jian Ge and Cang Yan were considered the Divine City’s Elders who were the most concerned about the rookies. As for people like the Tai Ah Divine City’s City Lord, they would usually enter reclusive training for decades. If someone were to ask them who Qin Haotian was, they would say that they had never heard of the name before.
“I say, old man Jian, you recently went to the Southern Island and got two pounds of Jing Luo Chun, right? Why aren’t you brewing it? It is such a waste of a heavenly treasure to not drink it!”
Cang Yan was taking a sip of the tea. He was currently drinking a top-grade tea which could nourish the meridians and the Dantian. A pot of this tea was priceless. But, he still yearned for Elder Jian Ge’s Jin Luo Chun.
Jian Ge rolled his eyes and could not be bothered to answer him. He said, “Didn’t you take Yi Yun out of the saber tomb today? How is he?”
Cang Yan stroked his chin when he heard Jian Ge ask this. It seemed like he did not know what to say.
“This…it is hard to say! When I asked the kid to come out, he looked very confident, it was as if he had actually learned something. But thinking about it, he only went in for a short amount of time, so it is quite unlikely that he had actually learned anything. So I am thinking of letting him go into the saber tomb again, so that he can try to gain more insights over a few days. Then, I’ll prepare an opponent of passable caliber to fight with him to see the results of his training!”
Elder Jian Ge was speechless when he heard this. He smacked the chess piece in his hand on the table and snapped, “You want to take him in there again? Do you think the saber tomb is the Tai Ah Divine City’s cook house!?”
“For a cultivator of the Purple Blood realm to enter the saber tomb for the first time, and after a few days, gain some confidence from it like he has learned something, what he learned is most likely wrong. Don’t tell me you didn’t realize this would happen. Are you planning to take Qiuniu and Chu Xiaoran to the sword and saber tombs in the next few days to see if they can gain some insight!?”
Upon being questioned by Elder Jian Ge, Cang Yan did not say a word. He also thought that Yi Yun must have gone astray in his learning.
He said softly, “Forget Qiuniu, but I think Chu Xiaoran has potential, so it is worth a try. She managed to gain some insights on truths at a young age and she has great perceptivity. Besides, she also uses a sword.”
Hearing Cang Yan’s words, Jian Ge hesitated. Cang Yan had a point about Chu Xiaoran, it was indeed worth a try.
Elder Jian Ge said, “Old man Cangg, we need to be careful. Although these geniuses have a very low probability of becoming sages, we should not ruin their futures. In the past year, there have been a series of phenomena in the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom, such as the Purple Clouds’ Birth in the Cloud Wilderness and the beast horde migration in the Divine wilderness last year. Who knows if something big has happened…To be able to nurture the younger generation, it is always good…”
As Jian Ge said this, he heard a Yuan Qi transmission from outside the door, “Subordinate Gui Bai seeks an audience with Elder Jian Ge”
“Gui Bai?” Jian Ge thought for a while. Gui Bai, as a law-enforcer, was in charge of this year’s rookie ranking competition. He should still be at the arena now.
“Come in. What’s the matter?” Jian Ge said lightly.
Gui Bai, who wore a black cloak, pushed the door open and entered the room. He unveiled his cowl and cupped his hands in a salute, “This subordinate was presiding over this year’s rookie ranking competition and something special happened in one of the battles. This subordinate could not be sure of what it was and I brought a video disk array for the two Elders to confirm it!”
Saying that, Gui Bai handed over the disk array.
Jian Ge looked at Gui Bai with some uncertainty. What sort of rookie battle needed him and Cang Yan to confirm?
At this moment, Gui Bai had placed the disk array on the table and by circulating his body’s Yuan Qi into the disk array, a light flashed from the disk array and video began emerging from it.
This was Qiuniu and Yi Yun’s battle!
“Oh? This little rascal immediately challenged Qiuniu? He sure is confident!”
After all, Yi Yun was of a normal background. To reach the point of challenging a reclusive family’s genius, Qiuniu, in three months after coming to the Tai Ah Divine City, it was not easy.
Gui Bai did not say anything and stood nearby with his hands by his side. Just the disk array’s video was enough to show Jian Ge and Cang Yan what was special about this battle without him saying another word.
Qiuniu and Yi Yun’s fierce battle appeared in the disk array’s footage. Seeing Yi Yun break through Qiuniu’s armor defenses, Jian Ge nodded his head.
Following that, Qiuniu took off his armor to battle Yi Yun again. Jian Ge gave a rare appreciative smile.
“This little rascal is not bad!”
“I know! He is not bad. Look at his battle with Qiuniu, he was never in a disadvantageous position in the first place. I had reason to take him into the saber tomb. Maybe with a few more days, he might really learn something!”
Cang Yan began boasting; but at this moment, Yi Yun was trapped by Qiuniu’s Trapped Ox Lock. Cang Yan’s happy expression froze. How could this kid be so unworthy of praise, I just praised him and now, he got trapped by his opponent. Yi Yun could only face the battle head on and he was bound to suffer as a result.
At this moment, Qiuniu launched his killing blow and Yi Yun took it head on with his saber.
It seemed as if time came to a stop. When they saw Yi Yun’s blade beam slice through the Sky Ox phantom image and then slash through Qiuniu’s strong body, both Cang Yan and Jian Ge expression’s froze!
How could that be!?
The two elders looked at each other and saw an incredulous look within the other’s eyes.
“Replay!” Cang Yan said in a hurry.
Gui Bai did not say a word and injected some more Yuan Qi into the disk array to show Yi Yun’s slash again.
This slash had hit Qiuniu’s body and it was reflected in their eyes. That blade beam lingered in their irises for a long time.
“The realm of the Saber Truth’s 32 Words!” Elder Jian Ge said in a deep voice.
“This kid!” Cang Yan was completely at a loss for words. At this moment, according to his temperament, he would have jumped up to boast and say how good his foresight was.
But Yi Yun was a freak. For Yi Yun to manage to gain insight from the Saber Truth’s 32 Words in just a few days, even he could not say anything.
He had originally taken Yi Yun to the saber tomb on a whim. He wanted to test Yi Yun. He felt that he could take Yi Yun to the tomb a few times for him to gain a tiny insight and it would benefit him for life.
Under normal circumstances, if Yi Yun could gain some insight in a few months, it would be an extraordinary feat. But now, in just 4-5 days, he had gained such insight? This was too great of an exaggeration!
Even Qin Haotian, who was a natural swordsman, could not be compared to Yi Yun in terms of his understanding of the sword!
“Impressive! Could this kid be a natural saber user?”
Some people were naturally compatible with a certain type of weapon. It was as if they were born for the weapon. When they used the weapon, their powers would greatly increase and they could not use any other weapon at all.
These people could easily reach the pinnacle in one aspect. It was also easier for them to gain insights on the weapon of their choice.
Jian Ge shook his head and said, “No, he isn’t…He also has a bow. His bow skills are not bad either. I heard that he managed to capture the primordial herb using that bow from the herb-picking administrator.”
“To not be a natural saber user, but to have such perceptivity that exceeds a natural saber user…It’s incredible!”
