    Chapter 106: Grand Dominance, Qin Yun

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    Hong Lingtong carefully dashed through the hills and woods and soon, he scaled a mountain. In front of him were large patches of farmland.

    "There's nothing ahead that provides any cover." Hong Lingtong gritted his teeth and maintaining his Divine Concealment Spell, he once again used a Dao talisman, Divine Traversal Charm. His speed rapidly reached a peak.

    Sou!

    He immediately ran at his fastest possible speed on the farmland and headed east!

    He was dressed in a green outer robe and it was inconspicuous in the woods or farmlands. After all, it was green everywhere in early spring.

    With the ten avian demons in the vicinity having been killed by Qin Yun recently, Hong Lingtong managed to run for about fifteen hundred meters. Despite running across the vast and empty farmlands, no demon noticed him.

    However, there were still avian demons that eventually flew over.

    "Oh?"

    The three avian demons flew in the sky and overlooked the area beneath them in search of their target.

    "Quick, look there! What's that?"

    "It's running really fast!"

    These avian demons even swooped down to investigate.

    "It's that cultivator!" One of the demons shouted immediately.

    "Found him!"

    "Here! He's here!!!" Three avian demons immediately shrieked. The voice that contained demonic power quickly spread in every direction. They were only ordinary lesser demons and knew that although the cultivator below them had yet to enter the Connate realm. He could match a typical Connate False Core cultivator if he fought desperately. Their young lord had died under the cultivator's hand so even though he was heavily injured, none of the ordinary lesser demons dared to embark on a suicide mission.

    Hong Lingtong darted across the farmlands and heard the sounds coming from above him. When he looked up, he saw the three avian demons in midair.

    "Oh no, I've been discovered." Hong Lingtong's heart palpitated.

    "Quick, quick, quick."

    Hong Lingtong panicked as he ran desperately.

    ...

    "Has that cultivator been discovered?" The voice spread to another end. Instantly, large swarms of demons received the news. As they passed the news to their king, they proceeded to stop Hong Lingtong.

    "Quickly head there."

    "Catch that cultivator."

    An ox demon in midair instantly gave the commanded as he commandeered a cloud and proceeded.

    And elsewhere.

    On the boat, Qin Yun and Yi Xiao had also heard the demons' shrieks coming from high up in the sky. They were standing on the deck watching from afar. Qin Yun and Yi Xiao cultivated in top heritage so although Yi Xiao had yet to comprehend the charms of the Heavenly Dao, causing her to condense a Connate False Core that was slightly weaker than Qin Yun's, she could still barely make out a figure that was running at a high speed three kilometers away.

    As for Qin Yun, he was able to discern it even better. He could vaguely make out the other party's looks and silhouette.

    "It looks like Hong Lingtong?" Qin Yun was a little astonished.

    "Go."

    With a thought from Qin Yun, the purple flying sword instantly unsheathed itself from the scabbard by his waist and streaked through the sky noiselessly as a purple beam. It was like a drizzle that left traces of a faint sword beam in the sky.

    ******

    Hong Lingtong was desperately running on the farmlands while he crossing streams as if he were on flat land.

    However, it was clear that the demons gathering in the sky were increasing.

    "What are you all afraid of? That cultivator is already heavily injured. He's not even my match." With a loud call, a hawk demon swooped down. It was one of the demon leaders and its strength was approaching that of the Connate False Core realm.

    With the hawk demon leading the way, two other demon leaders charged downwards as well.

    With a whoosh, a large number of lesser demons swarmed forward.

    "Oh no."

    Seeing the three demon leaders lead dozens of lesser demons down, Hong Lingtong immediately revealed a look of despair. "Survival is in the east. How far away is the east?"

    "Haha, Cultivator, you won't be able to escape." The hawk demon rushed in front of him and struck out with his talons.

    Shoo!

    A purple light that resembled a drizzle flashed past. The ferocious hawk demon widened his eyes in terror but before he could say a word, he immediately transformed into his true form and flew backward. Hong Lingtong struck the hawk demon's corpse with his wooden staff. He was also surprised by the sudden appearance of the purple beam of light that streaked across the sky like a flighty fish. Instantly, it pierced through the avian demons one after another.

    In a blink of an eye, dozens of demons, including the demon leaders, fell to the ground after reverting to their true forms. They had all died on the spot.

    With a whoosh, the purple beam of light circled around and stopped beside Hong Lingtong. It was a purple flying sword that rapidly expanded to several feet long.

    "Aren't you getting on?" A voice resounded in the surroundings.

    When Hong Lingtong heard that, he revealed a look of delight. "Brother Qin?"

    At that moment, he was thrilled to tears. He had previously lived in Grand Dominance City and for the past few months, he had been visiting Qin Yun frequently. They had a great friendship so he naturally could identify Qin Yun's voice instantly.

    "Hold on." Hong Lingtong waved his hand and released his Quintessential Essence which engulfed the three demon leaders' corpses, sweeping away some of the items the demon leaders had.

    "Quickly. There are more demons coming," urged Qin Yun.

    "Alright." Hong Lingtong immediately stepped onto the purple flying sword.

    Sou!

    The purple flying sword quickly flew back.

    When more demons rushed over from various regions, they saw that Hong Lingtong had landed on a boat after traveling on a purple flying sword.

    Hong Lingtong saw Qin Yun, Yi Xiao, and company standing at the bow of the boat. When he landed, he greeted gratefully, "Brother Qin." As for the purple flying sword, it shrunk and flew back into Qin Yun's scabbard.

    "You are eyeing even that tiny bit of treasure?" Qin Yun looked at Hong Lingtong as he carried a bunch of trinkets.

    "It's better than nothing. Those ordinary lesser demons are very poor while the demon leaders have accumulated a little more wealth. Hey, this banknote worth a hundred thousand taels of silver is yours, while I'll keep the remaining trinkets. You don't think much of them anyway." Hong Lingtong said immediately. As he spoke, he could not help but cough twice. His face flushed red as he coughed out a mouthful of blood. Instantly, he wrapped the blood in Quintessential Essence and send it off the boat and into the river.

    Qin Yun did not think much of the banknote and instead, frowned while looking at Hong Lingtong. "Your injuries are very severe?"

    "It's alright. I won't die from them." Hong Lingtong's face was pale. "I did not dare to spit out the blood while escaping, afraid that the demons could track me through the smell of my blood."

    Qin Yun stretched out his hand and grabbed Hong Lingtong's wrist. A wisp of Quintessential Essence was sent into Hong Lingtong's body to probe it. His expression changed slightly. "You are seriously injured. Your innards have shock wounds. You will have to return and recuperate."

    "This bit of injury is nothing. I've gotten into trouble. I killed Black Demon King's only son," said Hong Lingtong.

    "Black Demon King?"

    Long Xiaolian and the turtle demon was alarmed. They had long heard of Black Demon King's fame.

    Yi Xiao frowned slightly as she looked at Qin Yun.

    "Black Demon King?" Qin Yun nodded. "Alright. Hong Lingtong, have a good rest for the time being and leave the rest to me. Don't worry, I'll definitely send you back to Grand Dominance County safely."

    "Are you confident?" Yi Xiao could not help but ask. Although she had entered the Connate realm and the Lightning Dharm she cultivated was extraordinary, allowing her to match that of an ordinary Connate True Core realm, she believed she was not Black Demon King's match.

    Qin Yun glanced at Yi Xiao and said, "Yi Xiao, you can just watch by the side."

    Yi Xiao was astonished when she heard that. Following that, she heaved a sigh of relief and nodded with a smile. "Then, I'll watch here."

    "Brother-in-law, are you really that Black Demon King's match?" Long Xiaolian asked immediately. "Black Demon King is very powerful. Even my mother is no match for him."

    And at that moment.

    There were more and more demons gathered in midair. They were scattered in the surroundings and staring at the boat. The boatsman and his daughter panicked as they held their breaths. The maiden whispered, "Father, immortals, and demons are about to fight." However, the boatsman had an unconcealable glint in his eyes. "So many demons in the sky do not dare to attack. The people on our boat must be some powerful immortals. This is enough for me to brag for a lifetime."

    Among all the demons in the sky, an ox demon finally arrived.

    The stocky ox demon came over while standing on a cloud. While being clustered round by the horde of demons, he overlooked the area beneath him.

    "Who's that on the boat? How dare you make an enemy out of my Goat Horn Mountain?" The ox demon's voice reverberated like thunder throughout the world. He was also a great demon at the Connate False Core realm.

    "Grand Dominance, Qin Yun." Qin Yun stood at the bow of the boat and spoke while looking at the horde of demons in the sky that resembled a black cloud.

    "It's him?"

    When the ox demon heard that, his expression changed. "Retreat! Retreat!"

    Woosh!

    The ox demon, as well as the demon leaders that knew of Qin Yun's name, retreated a great distance away in fright. Although the other lesser demons were somewhat at a loss, they naturally retreated quickly when they saw the Connate great demons retreating in fear. Instantly, they retreated about a kilometer, putting a distance of about three kilometers between them and Qin Yun.

    "I heard that a flying sword can kill the enemy at a great distance. Now that we are so far, I'll escape the moment his flying sword moves. I should be fine." The ox demon thought to himself.

    "Why do we need to flee? Leader, who is Grand Dominance's Qin Yun?"

    "What background does Qin Yun have?"

    Some of the lesser demons asked amid whispers.

    The ox demon naturally couldn't be bothered to elaborate. A few demon leaders immediately explained in hushed tones, "Grand Dominance's Qin Yun is one of the strongest cultivators in Grand Dominance County. He has been conferred the title of Inspector Heavenly Ambassador. A flying sword can kill us from a great distance. Demons like us will only be sending ourselves to our deaths no matter the number."

    "He's that powerful?" The lesser demons' hearts were seized with fear.

    Long Xiaolian, the turtle demon, the boatsman and his daughter noticed that by simply declaring his name, Qin Yun had forced the numerous demons in the sky to retreat rapidly. Instead of pressing down on them, they had retreated about a kilometer, opening a gap of about three kilometers.

    They were all somewhat faltering.

    "Qin Yun!" At about three kilometers away, the ox demon bellowed, "I would like to inform you that the cultivator you saved a moment ago has killed my Black Demon King's only son. He will definitely kill him for revenge! If you release that cultivator now, this matter has nothing to do with you."

    "You are gutsy. Come over and speak in front of me." Qin Yun's voice sounded out.
