Chapter 986: Simplest Grand Dao
“That’s right, I doubt that she can beat all of us given her age.” A muscular tigerwolf demon stepped forward, adorned in thick armor plates and a thunderous voice.
He and the wind demon flew forward and landed on the pond. They used their strongest technique to attack Xuanyuan Yiyi.
Her long and curly eyelashes fluttered as he slowly closed her eyes. A sword intent flew out of her forehead and fused with the sword.
“Boom!” The blade became resplendent and soared like a meteor, piercing the tigerwolf demon’s dantian.
“Ahh! You… crippled my cultivation…” He became old at a rapid rate; his muscles shrank and his skin became filled with wrinkles. He fell to the ground and twitched repeatedly.
The wind demon was grievously wounded as well, unable to get up on the ground and on the verge of dispersing.
This sword intent made others shudder uncontrollably.
The long street was filled with demon corpses and blood.
Feiyun was covered in blood as well. Beast images floated around him; each punch could crush a demon.
His murderous energy intimidated the demons nearby and forced them to run. He noticed a particular courtyard and didn’t rush inside.
He raised one finger and touched an invisible barrier.
“Boom!” A punch ten thousand times the force of a fifth-level cultivator destroyed the barrier.
This courtyard looked peaceful but there was a stench of blood and signs of a battle.
Xuanyuan Yiyi still sat in the center of the pond while holding the jade ruler. There were no signs of the demon experts.
Feiyun got closer and saw the blood then Yiyi. He secretly lamented the fact that she has even grown stronger.
The wind blew and created ripples in the pond.
“You invited them?” Her voice was pleasant.
“Only you and I know our location, the demons couldn’t have arrived so quickly without an informant.” She said in a matter-of-fact tone.
“Princess Feiyuan is rather smart. You want to use her against me but she has sold you.” She went on.
“I’ve already predicted this since the world has no lack of smart people. Treating others as fools will result in becoming the fool.” He smiled.
“I’m curious, I have not done anything to offend you and we had no prior feud. Why did you scheme against me?” Yiyi stared at him.
“You won’t understand.” He responded.
“I’m even more curious then. If you wanted to kill me, why did you kill so many demons to get here? That seems contrary.” She asked.
“I don’t know either.” His eyes became serious for just a second before reverting to his normal self: “Maybe I realized that I like you, that’s why I came running.”
She ignored this completely and pondered in silence for a bit before speaking again: “Your friends have been taken away. I’m afraid the princess won’t spare them since you had killed so many demons.”
He agreed with this and decided to catch up in order to save those two. However, he heard a bang as he was about to leave.
He turned back and saw her laying on the table with blood streaming out the corner of her lips. She looked frighteningly pale and her long hair draped to the ground.
He carefully leaped across the water and maintained a distance. After confirming her injuries, he finally got close enough to grab her wrist and check her pulse.
It was extremely weak. Her life force was on the verge of extinguishing. There was a chilling aura coursing through her and freezing her blood.
She endured the pain when Feiyun came, not wanting to be spotted. She tried to intimidate him into leaving but it took too long.
“Her veins and meridians are damaged by overusing the heart scripture. Looks like she managed to repel the demons but still suffered serious damage.” Feiyun was familiar with this type of injury since the same thing happened when he met Shui Yueting for the first time.
Killing Yiyi right now meant getting revenge against Shui Yueting on top of obtaining the ruler – killing two birds with one stone.
Alas, he hesitated because Yiyi had nothing to do with his feud. In fact, she had saved him twice. He never considered himself a good person but he wasn’t a wretch who repay kindness with malice. This was a line he couldn’t cross.
“You want to kill her? It would be a shame because mythical geniuses are rather rare. Those from Aquamoon won’t let this go either, you would have to run out of human kingdoms.” The turtle felt his murderous intent.
He struggled for a bit before placing her neatly on the table. He replied: “I won’t kill her, there’s a better way to get revenge. Since she had taught such an excellent successor, I will ruin her.”
“Don’t tell me you want to sell this saintess to a brothel? Keke, what a terrible idea. I like it.” The turtle laughed and only wanted to create more chaos.
“No brothel will keep her. Plus, Aquamoon has plenty of experts. Once we leave this place, they’ll be able to calculate her position and current state. No one will be able to harm her then.” He responded.
“You want to sleep with her right now? Keke, I like that too.” The turtle said.
“No, her mental state is at an impressive level. Even if I sleep with her, her dao heart will remain the same. Moreover, I’m sure Shui Yueting had left a virginity seal on this girl. It will only go away if she herself is willing. Otherwise, very few men in this world can break it..”
“So you’re telling me that her dao heart is unbreakable and there’s a virginity seal. Thus, both physical and psychological attacks are useless, then we’re just wasting time here.” The turtle lowered its head in dejection.
“All women have a weak point. Once I find out what it is, I will break her dao heart and make her willingly become a half demon’s cultivation cauldron. Then I’ll personally travel to Aquamoon and tell Shui Yueting this.” Feiyun said.
“How merciless, if the deity finds this out about her successor, she’ll definitely kill you…”
Feiyun then fed Yiyi a Buddhist pill before assuming the meditation pose. A Buddhist platform appeared beneath him. He became radiant with a halo above and countless runes around him.
He had finished cultivating the third diagram thanks to the help of the saints’ ashes. His energy became a higher type, far purer than before.
The third diagram consisted of three hundred and sixty thousand transformations. Each art would be considered a top technique by others. Alas, individually, they weren’t a big deal in Feiyun’s eyes.
He needed to use all of them together, lowering the number but increasing the potency. Thus, the runes floated around him and started stacking up and fusing together.
360,000 became 180,000; the power increased considerably. 180,000 became 90,000, another large boost…
This condensing process was a test of patience. Feiyun attempted numerous times before reducing 360,000 down to 36. Each technique was comparable to a ninth-ranked spirit treasure.
He believed that he could still take it further. At the very top, powerful masters could create a world in their palm. One wave could unleash untold destruction; one finger could break through all arts. Simplicity became the key focus.
