Chapter 277: Heading into the Divine Wilderness
Luo Huo’er could only suffer in silence.
Seeing the group of girls look at her with concern, Luo Huo’er nearly flared up.
Especially the damned kid mixed in the crowd. He too looked at her with concern and puzzlement in his eyes.
Luo Huo’er found it unbearable to recall the experiences of the past few days. Everything was related to Yi Yun.
Yi Yun was like a jinx in her life. Anytime she met him, she would become unlucky.
“President, you must be careful. Experts can have accidents too. Never be careless because it would be terrible if you hurt yourself.”
A few of the Luohuo Association members clearly believed that Luo Huo’er had lost control of the energy, which resulted in the explosion.
Luo Huo’er was nearly dying from anger. With my abilities, would I make such a simple mistake!?
She still had not figured out why the energy trap did not trigger in Yi Yun’s hands, but the moment it came into hers, it exploded.
And since the Lin Bone Gall exploded, the energy trap was gone. She had no way of investigating what went wrong.
“Could that kid have tampered with it?”
Luo Huo’er looked hatefully at Yi Yun, but Yi Yun’s expression was a third puzzlement, a third confusion and a third concern. Besides that, there was nothing else that seemed odd.
“It can’t be him…”
Luo Huo’er shook her head deep down. Yi Yun had just come into contact with the Desolate Heaven technique. Even if he had extraordinary talent in energy control, it would be impossible for him to tamper with it in such a silent manner. It was after all, a trap she personally made.
Luo Huo’er’s clothes were all dirty and the foolish state she was in made her unwilling to stay here any longer. She just wanted to leave and take a bath.
The Desolate Heaven Master Society grounds did not have a place for washing up or changing clothes. Even though Luo Huo’er had brought clothes with her, there was no place for her to change.
Returning to her own apartment was also a problem. Even if she used her fire elemental energy to dry the snake bile, it would still leave a big green stain on Luo Huo’er.
For Luo Huo’er who treasured her face so much, she would rather die than be seen by others while wearing such stained clothes.
Gritting her teeth, Luo Huo’er took out her clothes from her interspatial ring and wanted to wear them over her body.
But her feminine clothes were slim in her upper body, while her lower body’s skirt was wide. It would clearly look odd to wear another dress over her dirty one.
“Miss Luo, I have a fairly large piece of clothing here. I am not sure if you will dislike it.”
Yi Yun took out his Jin Long Wei flying fish robe from his interspatial ring.
When Yi Yun came to the Tai Ah Divine City, he also brought along his flying fish robe. When he gained the interspatial ring, he naturally threw the flying fish robe into it.
The lower hem of the flying fish robe was wide, and there was also a spare cape.
Luo Huo’er actually wanted to reject it, but just as she was about to say no, she noticed that his flying fish robe’s cape could cover her body all around from the collar. If she wore the cape and a belt, it could be used like a cloak. She could then completely cover her body so that nothing could be seen from the outside.
She was indeed in extreme need of such a cape.
Luo Huo’er bit her lips and took the cape from Yi Yun.
She did not need the flying fish robe as the cape alone was enough.
Covering her body with the cape was perfect. The golden cape was embroidered with flying fish patterns, so it did not weird. In fact, it made Luo Huo’er appear heroic.
Luo Huo’er thanked Yi Yun slowly. She then left the Desolate Heaven Master Society with Dong’er.
She quickly walked back to her apartment in the central divine tower. On arrival she entered the bathroom and showered a few times, only then was she able to wash away the bitter smell. As for the clothes that had been stained by the bile, she threw them away as it was too difficult to wash the bile out of them.
As for Yi Yun’s flying fish robe cape, it too had been stained with the bile. She wanted to throw it away as well, but upon further thought, she threw the cape at Dong’er and said, “Wash the cape. Make sure to clean it properly. I’ll return it to him tonight…”
“Alright…” Dong’er obediently answered.
Luo Huo’er went into a slight daze and remained silent for a while. She then murmured to herself, “Dong’er, do you think I went a little too far?”
“Ah?” Dong’er went into a daze, “Miss, what do you mean by too far?”
“Nothing…” Luo Huo’er shook her head. Dong’er did not know the various incidents she had with Yi Yun.
Dong’er took the cape and left Luo Huo’er looking out the window with a pensive look.
Upon further thought, it was purely unintentional of Yi Yun to see her body and hear her words.
Yi Yun also won Teacher Yuehua’s test because of his ability.
Yi Yun did nothing wrong, yet she wanted to seek revenge, leading her to reap what she had sown…
Just now when she was soaked in bile, Yi Yun did not gloat over her misfortune, he even offered her his cape, saving her from embarrassment.
Upon thinking of this, Luo Huo’er felt somewhat guilty. She said to Dong’er, “Dong’er, before you wash the cape, go to the Ten Thousand Pagoda and exchange for a Lin Bone Gall. I’ll give that to Yi Yun too…”
Luo Huo’er had exploded Yi Yun’s Lin Bone Gall, so he naturally had no way of completing the energy extraction assignment. Buying a Lin Bone Gall to replace it was also a form of apology from Luo Huo’er.
That night, Yi Yun heard a knock on his door. When he opened the door, he saw Luo Huo’er standing in front of his door, holding a neatly folded cape.
On the cape, there was also a Lin Bone Gall.
Yi Yun was slightly stunned. As he was about to say something, Luo Huo’er pushed the all the items into Yi Yun’s arms. “For everything that happened today, thank you. The cape has been washed and I’m returning it to you.”
After Luo Huo’er said that, she turned and left.
She left Yi Yun behind in a daze. He looked at the cape in his hands. There were still traces of a fire elemental law on it. Clearly, after the cape had been washed, Luo Huo’er also used her fire elemental laws to dry the cape…
“Did I go too far…?”
Yi Yun looked at Luo Huo’er’s back and stroked his chin and shook his head.
He and Luo Huo’er had both arrived at the same conclusion for the same matter. It was quite an interesting coincidence…
Clouds moved as the sun rose and set.
Life in the Tai Ah Divine City carried on. Everyday, Yi Yun would be cultivating, and then cultivating some more…
The Desolate Heaven technique, Saber truths, “Truth of the Laws”, “Ten Thousand Beast Totem”, “Tai Ah Sacred Technique”…
There were too many things Yi Yun needed to cultivate, and every one of them was an extremely difficult path.
Many warriors would never dare to touch things like the ‘Ten Thousand Beast Totem’ or the Saber Truth’s 32 Words even as human lords, what more merely being in the Purple Blood realm.
Slowly, two months passed. Yi Yun had now spent half a year in the Tai Ah Divine City.
In these two months, Yi Yun continued to solidify his foundation. His cultivation level had risen too quickly. He had used about half a year to go from the most basic first rank of Mortal Blood to the middle stages of Purple Blood.
Cultivating too fast usually led to a shaky foundation. As such, Yi Yun took the time to make sure that his foundation would be strong.
As Yi Yun walked out of the saber tomb once more, Cang Yan came over. He knocked Yi Yun on the chest and said, “Kid, why haven’t you challenged the Earth roll yet!?”
In his opinion, Yi Yun had almost reached the top 1000 of the Earth roll two months ago, so with two months passing by, Yi Yun should now have the ability to enter the top 1000.
For a Tai Ah Divine City rookie to enter the top 1000 in his first year was incredible.
If Yi Yun were to enter the top 1000 in half a year, he would shock the large factions till their eyeballs dropped out of their sockets.
But Yi Yun lived in seclusion for the past two months. He only cultivated, making Cang Yan feel slightly angry. Why was this kid not feeling any urgency!?
Yi Yun said, “I have too many things to cultivate. I’ll leave the Earth roll on the back burner.”
Yi Yun really did not mind. His strength may have grown, but it had not grown by much. It would not be too late to challenge the Earth roll when his strength increased by leaps and bound.
“Darn kid, can’t you behave properly? Just walk slowly on the martial arts path. You have excellent talent. You just need to understand the saber truths and the ‘Tai Ah Sacred Technique’ well, get a good Aspect Totem mystic technique and your future would be boundless. Yet you want to learn the Desolate Heaven technique… With your talent, if you need resources, the Divine Kingdom will not leave you hanging. You do not need to earn them by yourself.”
Cang Yan did not know what to say. Yi Yun learned too many things that were difficult. This made Cang Yan worry for him.
Yi Yun laughed and said, “Thank you for the senior’s concern. This junior is quite interested in the Desolate Heaven technique, so I will still carry on learning it…”
Yi Yun knew that the Divine Kingdom’s royal family would groom him once he showed sufficient talent in the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom.
But Yi Yun’s goal was not the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom. In the future, he wanted to leave the kingdom and face an even wider world. When that happened, there might not be any factions that could support him.
With an additional skill, he could have another way out.
“Do you still want to learn the ‘Ten Thousand Beast Totem’?” Cang Yan still wanted Yi Yun to return the Aspect Totem mystic technique. The ‘Ten Thousand Beast Totem’ was a mystic technique that even a sage could not master. What could Yi Yun learn from it while he was in the Purple Blood realm?
“Yes.” Yi Yun nodded.
“You really do not intend to change? I can return the glory points from the ‘Ten Thousand Beast Totem’ to you…”
Cang Yan “patiently” said. He had initially hoped that Yi Yun would give up after knowing the difficulty, he never expected that the kid would proceed on into the unknown.
Yi Yun shook his head. “Me coming to the saber tomb today is also for me to bid the senior farewell. I plan to… go into the Divine wilderness and begin condensing my Aspect Totem.”
Yi Yun’s two months of cultivation was the last pieces of preparation before he would embark on his Divine wilderness expedition.
Warriors who came to the Tai Ah Divine City for training would eventually enter the Divine wilderness to kill desolate beasts!
This was also the Tai Ah Divine City’s most important and dangerous training. Many cultivators died during this training experience.
“Condense the Aspect Totem?” Cang Yan was stunned. “You are prepared to condense the ‘Ten Thousand Beast Totem”s Aspect Totem?”
“Yes… I intend to try to…” Yi Yun said calmly and firmly.
He was finally going to enter the Divine wilderness, a unknown and mysterious world…
Author’s note: The transition is difficult to write. We are entering the Divine wilderness soon. I plan on tidying up my thoughts.
