Chapter 718: Alliance
The thought of finding the Black-armored Demon God lingered in Yi Yun’s mind. He meditated for a full fifteen minutes before he figured out where the energy mark was in his body. He was in no rush to go against the flow to locate the Black-armored Demon God.
He looked up at the Sanctuary Island couple.
“Is there something that the two of you want to discuss with me?”
The couple looked each other in the eye as the man smiled and said, “It’s actually nothing important. The both of us were actually leaning towards retreating from the remote mountains with the Human race. It is not because we were afraid to die, but we felt that it was meaningless to make pointless sacrifices.”
“However… with Young master Yi and Fairy Lin returning this time, it seems that there will be an intense battle. Since Young master Yi is so confident, I’m actually quite curious. After discussing it with my wife, the two of us have decided to stay behind as witnesses to Young master Yi’s grand battle with the Black-armored Demon God. This is probably the battle that has the highest chance of seriously injuring the Black-armored Demon God. The two of us do not wish to miss such a battle. And by staying behind, we might give some insignificant help.”
The Island Lord, surnamed Ying, touched on the matter lightly, and he slightly surprised Yi Yun. The Sanctuary Island couple was actually planning on staying to fight to the death.
He was confident that he could escape from the Black-armored Demon God, but the Sanctuary Island couple might not have the means. There was the danger of dying if they stayed behind!
As members of the Human race, to fight alongside the Desolate race at the risk of death, this had won a lot of goodwill with Yi Yun.
If one talked about fearing Yi Yun, the Sanctuary Island couple were the least afraid of Yi Yun. The couple were without kin and they were completely isolated. They lived in seclusion at Sanctuary Island and it was not a large faction. They were like as unworldly as the wild stock or floating clouds. Even if the factions of the Tian Yuan world were ruled and distributed by him, it would not affect them.
“Thank you for being so understanding of the correct principles.” Yi Yun clasped his fists. He was a person who would settle scores with his enemies, but he too was a grateful person. He had noted the Sanctuary Island couple’s goodwill.
“Since we have now forged an alliance, I wonder if Young master Yi plans on informing us of your ideas? From Young master Yi’s expression, I feel like Young master Yi already has an idea of how to handle the situation.” The Sanctuary Island Lord asked.
He noticed how Yi Yun looked calm from the beginning. He did not have the panic that should have resulted from having a mark planted on him. Although he did not think that Yi Yun could do anything to the Black-armored Demon God’s mark, since Yi Yun wasn’t afraid, then it meant that he had plans and preparation towards facing the Black-armored Demon God in a life-and-death battle.
If it wasn’t for this, Yi Yun would also not have categorically rejected the humans’ conditions, and shrugged off the Cosmic Infinite Array.
The Sanctuary Island couple had decided on staying behind to fight to the death, so it was reasonable to make such a request.
However, the matter of how the Purple Crystal could control the Black-armored Demon God’s spiritual energy was not something that Yi Yun wanted to explain, he pondered for a moment before saying, “I originally had a plan, but after tonight, the situation might change. So, I plan on waiting for an outcome before making it clear to the two of you.”
The Sanctuary Island couple was surprised. With regards to the Black-armored Demon God, even if it were a few nights, there shouldn’t be any changes, what was one more night?
However, since it was said by Yi Yun, the Sanctuary Island couple looked each other in the eye before nodding. One of them said, “If that is the case, the both of us shall await the news.”
“Alright then. The debate had gone on for a long while today. The both of you must be tired, so have an early rest and recharge yourselves.” Yi Yun said politely.
The Sanctuary Island couple could tell that Yi Yun had something to say to Jiang Xiaorou and company. So with a smile, they stood up and said, “Then we shall take our leave first.”
The former Desolate Queen summoned two maids, who respectfully led the Sanctuary Island couple out of the hall.
As long as they fought alongside them, members of the Human race would receive the respect of the Desolate race.
After the Sanctuary Island couple left, Jiang Xiaorou came in front of Yi Yun. She was worried and feeling terrible. She planned on persuading Yi Yun to go far away. But now, Yi Yun had been locked onto by the Black-armored Demon God.
She believed in what Yi Yun said about being able to escape from the Black-armored Demon God, but now with the Black-armored Demon God locking onto him, it would be useless even if he could escape.
After escaping, no matter which ends of the planet he was on, he would be quickly found by the Black-armored Demon God. It was like a maggot in a tarsal bone that could not be removed.
Yi Yun was strong, but was he strong enough to escape from the Black-armored Demon God time and time again?
“Sis Xiaorou, there’s no need to worry. Actually, I already have a plan. The Black-armored Demon God’s lock onto me actually has little impact. Instead, it has given me a chance.” Yi Yun said.
“What chance?” The former Desolate Queen and Jiang Xiaorou were surprised. This matter was something that anyone would try to avoid as hard as possible, yet, Yi Yun had said that it had given him a chance.
Even Lin Xintong’s eyes flickered. She too did not know what Yi Yun was up to.
“Senior Qing Kui.” Yi Yun suddenly looked at Shepherd Boy.
Although his present status and strength was above Shepherd Boy, Yi Yun still owed him his life from before. So up to now, he was still extremely respectful to Shepherd Boy.
Shepherd Boy nodded and said, “Young master Yi, please speak.”
“I wonder if Senior Shepherd Boy is willing to accept the transference of the mark planted by the Black-armored Demon God on me to you?” From Yi Yun’s previous rumination, he had made a decision. He wanted to use the spiritual mark planted by the Black-armored Demon God and find him by following the vine to the melon. However, he could not bring the spiritual mark with him when approaching the Black-armored Demon God, or it would alert the enemy.
Hence, this spiritual mark needed to be born by someone. And this person had to stay behind when he went into action. A typical warrior could not bear the spiritual pressure of the Black-armored Demon God. The person most suitable here was Shepherd Boy. He was resolute and trustworthy.
Shepherd Boy was momentarily surprised before saying immediately, “You can transfer the Black-armored Demon God’s spiritual mark?”
Be it the former Desolate Queen or Jiang Xiaorou, they were completely dumbfounded when they heard this. The Black-armored Demon God’s spiritual mark was extremely powerful. Just removing it was almost impossible, and he wanted to transfer it to another person? Was it possible?
“I’ll give it a try. I also do not know if it is possible. As long as Senior Qing Kui agrees, then I can begin now. After the battle with the Black-armored Demon God, I will naturally remove the spiritual mark from Senior’s body.”
Yi Yun did not say it with certainty. If it was removing a tracking mark, it was much easier compared to transferring the mark.
“I naturally am willing. Then, can you also transfer the mark on Her Majesty’s body?” Shepherd Boy hurriedly asked.
He was loyal to the Desolate race and he would not hesitate to die for Jiang Xiaorou.
Yi Yun said, “Senior, rest assured. This tracking mark is not a problem at all. Not only can I transfer it, I can also wipe it away. However, if I were to do that now, it might alert the Black-armored Demon God.”
Yi Yun never put the tracking mark at heart. As for Jiang Xiaorou’s safety, he was also not worried. He had the God Advent Tower.
With a few words, Yi Yun lessened the tension of the situation. His confidence and calmness infected many of the people present. It caused the solemn atmosphere of every man fighting to the death to become not as daunting.
“Oh yes, Senior Qing Kui, Your Majesty. These… are my mentors and friends from the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom. Back when Tai Ah Divine City was invaded, they were captured and they have been held in the remote mountains for more than ten years. Now, they have been conscripted into the Desolate race army… ”
As Yi Yun spoke, he walked towards Cang Yan and company.
Cang Yan, Jian Ge and Yang Qingyun were already at a loss as to what to say. Whatever happened today went beyond their understanding.
Yi Yun not only possessed the status of being the leader of the Tian Yuan world, he had also become the backbone of the resistance against the Black-armored Demon God. What seemed like a hopeless situation seemed to be alleviated with his appearance. There was a feeling of hope.
To be able to reverse the situation of the world while engaging in gaily chatter, Yi Yun had become such a figure in less than twenty years time. It was truly remarkable.
