Chapter 164: Reunion

    Chapter 164: Reunion

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    In order to save Yi Xiao, Qin Yun had entered the array formation without returning.

    There were people who sighed, there were others who were sad. There were also others who scoffed at it, thinking that Qin Yun was foolish to seek death for a woman, curtailing the bright future he had. There were even others who celebrated happily about his predicament.

    For example, the Zhongli family's Princess Martial Maple.

    "Princess, Yi Caishi is feeling sad for his daughter," a maidservant reported respectfully.

    Princess Martial Maple, who was dressed in a tight purple dress, was seated and eating grapes. She said with a delightful smile, "There's no need to care about Caishi. If he's sad, let him be. She's his daughter after all."

    "This is the happiest day over the past half year." Princess Martial Maple was in high spirits as she ate her grapes. She said with a smile, "That punk Qin Yun sure was arrogant. I was still thinking of means to deal with him, but he ended up seeking death himself. Haha, isn't he trying to constantly protect that Yi Xiao? Now, for her, he entered an array formation. That woman is nothing but a jinx!"

    "I believe in time, both he and Yi Xiao will die in there."

    Princess Martial Maple smirked. "I definitely have to celebrate when the day comes."

    The maidservant said immediately, "I believe the day will come very soon."

    ******

    The turmoil outside the array formation had no influence on Qin Yun and Yi Xiao in the array formation.

    Three days ago.

    With the Heavy Sand Sword producing Cyclic Sword Flash to protect him, Qin Yun had held the Golden Core Cauldron in one hand and entered the array formation that was filled with vast white forces.

    "Where's Yi Xiao?" Qin Yun rapidly proceeded forward and through his sword intent domain, he sensed the surrounding eighty feet to search for Yi Xiao.

    "Phew."

    He put away the Golden Core Cauldron once again.

    He had taken out the Golden Core Cauldron to firstly, protect Hong Lingtong, letting everyone know that he had brought in his most valuable treasure into the array formation. Secondly, if he were trapped in the array formation, the Golden Core Cauldron might attract more powerful experts to save the two of them.

    "Yi Xiao!" Qin Yun shouted. His voice was powered by the Golden Core Dharmic powers, but even so, it could barely go as far as a hundred feet.

    "Yi Xiao, Yi Xiao!"

    Qin Yun shouted as he proceeded forward.

    The surging white forces constantly lacerated the Cyclic Sword Flash. In the periphery, Qin Yun was able to hold out but as he proceeded forward, he felt that the white forces around him were turning more intense. They were like gigantic vortex swirls that tugged at him. He found it harder and harder to resist.

    Qin Yun tried his best to avoid the most tempestuous spots as he walked inside the array formation in constant search.

    "Yi Xiao! Yi Xiao!" Qin Yun shouted again and again. He also attempted to contact her through the Inspect Heavenly Token but to no avail.

    "Boom!" As the swirling white forces changed, Qin Yun was pulled in by an undetected current.

    "Oh no."

    Qin Yun's expression changed.

    The Intrinsic Flying Sword immediately produced Cyclic Sword Flash to protect his body. As for the Heavy Sand Sword, it cast the Misty Rain Sword Art's Lightning Tide. Boom! Heavy Sand Sword extended to about ten feet long as it obstreperously struck into the blob of white forces. After breaking through the forces, Qin Yun immediately extricated himself from the tugging force, preventing himself from being pulled in further.

    "It's too dangerous. If I'm not careful, I'll be pulled in and it would become more dangerous." Qin Yun thought to himself. "With my present strength, I'm afraid I won't be able to get out once I'm inside."

    "Could it be that Yi Xiao has been pulled into the deepest depths?"

    "No, she might still be in the periphery."

    Qin Yun continued searching for her.

    Although the array formation was tempestuous with constant undetectable streams, through the Heavy Sand Sword and his Intrinsic Flying Sword, Qin Yun managed to proceed through the array formation's periphery. In a blink of an eye, he had ventured a range of a thousand feet.

    "Nothing. I can't find her. I've already circled it once." Qin Yun was alarmed as he looked at the dense white forces in front of him. "Has Yi Xiao been pulled in deeper? She might lose her life at any time."

    "Go."

    Qin Yun gritted his teeth.

    Phew.

    He took the initiative to step forward.

    As he approached the center, the sweeping forces of the white forces increased tremendously. Soon, Qin Yun could not extricate himself, not even with the Heavy Sand Sword or the Intrinsic Flying Sword.

    "An array formation must have a way to crack it. There has to be a way to survive this," thought Qin Yun. "I will definitely save Yi Xiao and bring her out of here."

    Phew.

    As though he was pulled into a maelstrom, he was constantly hurled towards the center. The forces turned increasingly stronger as Qin Yun felt like he was floating. There was no way to resist it any further.

    "Boom!"

    When the vortex's strength reach it's strongest, it vanished.

    Qin Yun also fell into a dark and deep passage.

    Phew.

    He plummeted down.

    While plummeting, the Cyclic Sword Flash continued protecting him. Although the array formation was powerful, it still failed to break through his Cyclic Sword Flash! After all, the Cyclic Sword Flash produced by Golden Core Dharmic powers would probably not be broken even if a Golden Core Paramount realm expert were here.

    "Oh?" Qin Yun suddenly looked down and in a corner, there was a slim figure clinging closely to a wall with ice-blue ripples protecting her vicinity.

    "Yi Xiao?" Qin Yun shouted.

    ...

    Yi Xiao was standing in a corner, with ice-blue ripples protecting her surroundings. However, it was clearly thinning and she was warily on guard.

    "What do I do? Leaving this spot means death, but so does not leaving too." Yi Xiao was anxious.

    She had been pulled in and before the protective treasure was completely dissolved, she had fallen into a dark and deep passage.

    Yi Xiao discovered that just a slight movement would immediately lead to invisible attacks on her! Therefore, she could only cling to the wall motionlessly. But even so, there would be a wave of assaults from time to time.

    "Phew."

    A wind blew in the passage.

    With each blast of the wind, there were invisible forces that were hidden in it.

    The invisible blasts slashed at the ice-blue ripples that protected Yi Xiao, weakening them slightly. When Yi Xiao saw the thinning ripples and the cracking Dao talisman in her hand, she said under her breath, "It won't last much longer."

    "Qin Yun, I can't hold on any longer."

    Yi Xiao looked up and saw that through the dark passage that led upwards, she could barely see the white forces hurling outside.

    "I really do not want to die. I want to spend the rest of my life with you..." Yi Xiao muttered softly.

    Suddenly, a resplendent Cyclic Sword Flash descended down. In the barrier of light was a young man. He was none other than Qin Yun.

    Yi Xiao was stunned as she looked up at the descending figure. Back when they fought with Water God, Qin Yun had once saved her!

    Back when she was captured by Princess Martial Maple, Qin Yun had also saved her.

    But only this time, when she experienced the might of the terrifying array formation that Yi Xiao understood that Qin Yun would probably not be able to escape if he were to enter.

    "Yi Xiao?" Qin Yun shouted.

    The moment he landed, he maintained the Cyclic Sword Flash barrier and flew over. Immediately, invisible forces in the corridor came assaulting Qin Yun's sword flash barrier. However, he withstood it and flew straight to Yi Xiao's side, protecting her with his Cyclic Sword Flash.

    "Yi Xiao, I'm here." Qin Yun looked at Yi Xiao and could not help but smile. He was beaming radiantly.

    Qin Yun felt filled with joy when he found Yi Xiao.

    Yi Xiao was crying but as she cried, she hugged Qin Yun and wailed. She had never cried this badly ever since she grew up.

    "Why are you so foolish? Why did you come in? You don't have to care about me!" Yi Xiao cried. "How are you to go out after coming in? Are you a fool?"

    "I'm not a fool." Qin Yun hugged Yi Xiao. "I only know that I'm happiest at this moment."

    Yi Xiao looked up at Qin Yun through her blurry tears. "This array formation is too dangerous. There's no need for you to enter. I won't be able to escape, so why did you send yourself in here to die?"

    "Yi Xiao, if I were outside, no matter how glorious or exciting the things I encounter, I will only be facing it lonelily, with no one to share it with. That would also be a form of torture for me." Qin Yun looked at Yi Xiao in his arms and said with a smile. "On the other hand, I'm now very happy. Because no matter what happens next, be it life or death, you and I can face it together."

    Yi Xiao smiled as well. "We will face it together."

    From a young age, she had been alone. Her mother had long abandoned her, and her father had abandoned her at the age of nine.

    And at that moment, Yi Xiao believed that she would not be lonely forever. Be it life or death, there would always be one person accompanying her.

    She felt that the heavens treated her pretty well.

    "Logically speaking, Immortal Scenic Yang's array formations shouldn't be that ruthless and merciless." Qin Yun held Yi Xiao's hand. "Let's look around. I believe we will definitely find a way out."
