    Chapter 200: Yellow Wyrm, Black Dragon Palace

    Several days later.

    The Connate Golden Core cultivators that came to congratulate Qin Yun gradually departed. He began to have more time on his hands. With that, he gradually put the finishing touches on his fourth killer move.

    "Second Young Master," shouted Ah Gui from afar.

    "Oh?"

    Qin Yun strode across the mirror lake leisurely and came to the bank. "Ah Gui, what's the matter?"

    "Second Young Master, someone who calls himself Yellow Wyrm wishes to seek an audience with you. He has even brought lots of gifts," said Ah Gui immediately. "The gifts are very substantial and Brother Chu Yuan who received the gifts said the quality was comparable to the congratulatory gifts from the imperial government. This is the list of gifts."

    "Yellow Wyrm?" Qin Yun received a scroll and unfurled it to take a look.

    They were indeed substantial!

    Ordinary gifts were sufficient for congratulatory gifts. The East Sea Dragon Palace had given a lot because it was wealthy. As for the Yellow Wyrm Lake's Flood Dragon King, the value of the gifts he gave matched that of two or three fourth-grade Dharma treasures. Anyone would consider it very substantial. Most Connate Golden Core cultivators only had one or two third-grade Dharma treasures after all.

    "This yellow flood dragon does know I'm angry," thought Qin Yun.

    "Let him in," instructed Qin Yun.

    "Yes." Ah Gui immediately retreated.

    Soon.

    A middle-aged man dressed in plain clothes came in. When he saw Qin Yun, he immediately transformed, with his head becoming a flood dragon's head. He exuded a clearly different aura. He immediately cupped his hands in front of him and bowed. "Greetings Sword Immortal Qin, I am Yellow Wyrm Lake's Flood Dragon King. I am really ashamed coming to meet you like this."

    As for Ah Gui, who had escorted the middle-aged man in, his eyes went wide when he saw the ordinary man transform his head into a flood dragon's head. He was nearly scared out of his wits.

    He hurriedly retreated and muttered secretly, "Yellow Wyrm Lake's Flood Dragon King? I wonder which flood dragon is it that wants to meet young master. Young Master sure is awesome. Even the East Sea Dragon Palace's crown prince came. Now, a flood dragon is here too."

    "If you took any longer to come, I might have gone to your Yellow Wyrm Lake." Qin Yun sat there with a cold and austere expression.

    Indeed, he had to settle the matter with Yellow Wyrm Lake before he went to the West Sea.

    "Sword Immortal Qin, I knew that you had been entertaining many guests these past few days. I didn't want to come and ruin your good mood; therefore, I deliberately came to meet you a few days late," said Yellow Wyrm immediately. "Regarding that daughter of mine..."

    "Wait." Qin Yun raised his hand to stop him. "Wait till she comes before you continue."

    Yellow Wyrm was somewhat embarrassed.

    Qin Yun did not have a polite attitude which made Yellow Wyrm feel very uncomfortable. He could also sense Qin Yun's anger and killing intent. Furthermore, he had investigated the matter ahead of time. "That Fu Qing who died was apparently Qin Yun's brother-in-arms at the northern borders. With him dead, Qin Yun would definitely not let the matter rest. Regardless, even if I have to call him grandpa, I will not let him vent his anger on me. It's all that bitch's fault."

    Yellow Wyrm had already made his plans so he was naturally very calm.

    "Uncle Qin." A young girl ran over from afar. She was none other than the young fish demoness, Fu Sizhuo.

    The moment she saw the humanoid Yellow Wyrm with a flood dragon's head, her expression turned pale.

    "Sizhuo, come over here," said Qin Yun.

    "Yes, Uncle Qin." Fu Sizhuo stood beside Qin Yun.

    "Speak, how are you going to answer to me?" Qin Yun looked coldly at Yellow Wyrm.

    Yellow Wyrm looked at Fu Sizhuo and could not but have tears well in his eyes. He said with a shake of his head, "I'm really ashamed. Despite being Flood Dragon King of Yellow Wyrm Lake, I was unable to protect my daughter. To be honest, my wife is oppressive and jealous. As I couldn't stand her, I secretly had affairs, and had illegitimate children as a result. I would give them some treasures with the hope they would lead normal lives. I didn't even dare to think of bringing them into Flood Dragon Palace. But who knew that my wife would investigate in secret and have each and every one of them killed?"

    Fu Sizhuo gnashed her teeth when she heard that. She recalled the days of being pursued.

    "And you didn't know about it?" Qin Yun sneered.

    "I really knew nothing in the beginning," said Yellow Wyrm immediately. "When I later learned of it, most of them had already been killed. Furthermore, my wife is very bossy so all I could do was bear with her and pretend I didn't know about it."

    "What a wimp," commented Qin Yun.

    "I'm a wimp but I had no choice either," said Yellow Wyrm.

    Qin Yun nodded, "Are you implying that all of this was done by the Dragon Queen alone?"

    "Yes, I believe that if Sword Immortal Qin carefully investigates, you will definitely realize I speak the truth," said Yellow Wyrm. "This matter has nothing to do with me, from beginning to end."

    "You eventually learned of it but you didn't even try to stop her," said Qin Yun.

    "It would be useless even if I did try," answered Yellow Wyrm immediately.

    "Then, how are you going to answer to me?" questioned Qin Yun with a frown.

    Yellow Wyrm looked at Qin Yun, and Fu Sizhuo beside him. He said with a voice transmission, "Sword Immortal Qin, this matter was all the work of that shrew. Feel free to kill her. You won't hear a complaint from me."

    Qin Yun was slightly startled.

    Feel free to kill her?

    This was the Flood Dragon King's wife!

    "Say that aloud for Sizhuo," said Qin Yun.

    Yellow Wyrm hesitated for a moment before saying, "Alright. I have had enough of that shrew! She stirred a lot of trouble this time so she naturally has to live with her actions. Sword Immortal Qin feel free to kill her! I, Yellow Wyrm, will definitely not utter a complaint."

    Fu Sizhuo were somewhat dumbstruck when she heard this.

    "Daughter." Yellow Wyrm looked at Fu Sizhuo. "That shrew is now afraid. She has fled! Follow Daddy back to Flood Dragon Palace. No one will bully you again."

    "My name is Fu Sizhuo and my father's name is Fu Qing," said the young fish demoness with reddened eyes. "I will forever be a daughter of the Fu family."

    Yellow Wyrm felt a little embarrassed.

    In fact, he had all sorts of lovers outside the palace and he cared little for a mere fish demoness. He had only made the offer because of Qin Yun. In truth, he never thought anything of his illegitimate children's deaths.

    "That's okay. I won't force you. You can call yourself anything you like. I owe you everything," said Yellow Wyrm immediately. "Are you at least willing to return to Flood Dragon Palace with me?"

    "No." The fish demoness shook her head. "My father wanted me to follow Uncle Qin."

    "That's too much of a burden on Sword Immortal Qin," said Yellow Wyrm immediately.

    "She will stay in my Qin Manor for the foreseeable future," said Qin Yun.

    Yellow Wyrm immediately gave an obsequious smile. "That's good. With Sword Immortal Qin here, I'll be more assured too. Daughter, here are some gifts that I prepared for you. Also, there are some Dharmic formulations for cultivation." With that said, he placed a Cosmic Bag on a stone table.

    Qin Yun nodded. "Where is Dragon Queen currently?"

    "On the day you fought the numerous fiendish demons, that shrew fled in fear. She returned to her parental family," said Yellow Wyrm.

    "Parental family?" Qin Yun frowned.

    "Yes." Yellow Wyrm nodded. "That shrew is the daughter of Black Dragon Palace's Palatial Lord from the Po Prefecture's Po Cloud Lake. Therefore, you should understand why I let her bully me."

    Qin Yun frowned.

    Po Cloud Lake was the biggest lake in the world! The lake was so large that it covered half the Po Prefecture!

    Furthermore, Po Cloud Lake had many Water demons. Out of all the Water demons that had gained immortality, Po Cloud Lake had a total of six!

    As a Daoist sacred land of the Po Prefecture, only The Divine Firmament Chapter was able to suppress Po Cloud Lake's rampant aggression.

    "She's in Po Cloud Lake's Black Dragon Palace?" Qin Yun also knew that Black Dragon Palace was where an existence at the immortal level resided.

    "That shrew knows that you are formidable and fled a long time ago," said Yellow Wyrm. "I couldn't do a thing about it either."

    "Fine, I understand." Qin Yun nodded. "Alright, you may leave."

    "Yes, yes, yes." A delighted Yellow Wyrm respectfully departed.

    Qin Yun watched him leave as he secretly ruminated over the matter. "This Yellow Wyrm wishes his wife dead. And Dragon Queen sent her subordinates to pursue a mere fish demoness who had evaded her for years. Why did she go through that much effort to hunt down so many illegitimate children? Ws it really only out of of jealousy? It feels like there's more to this matter."

    "However, Scholar's death was indeed a result of Dragon Queen's orders. She had sent the demons to pursue him. And now she's hiding in Black Dragon Palace?" Qin Yun frowned.

    ...

    Whoosh.

    Yellow Wyrm left Jiang Prefecture's Grand Dominance on a cloud as he headed straight for Qian Prefecture's Yellow Wyrm Lake.

    "Haha, hahaha..." Yellow Wyrm laughed out loud and was feeling quite pleased.

    "Qin Yun, oh Qin Yun. You have really helped me greatly." Yellow Wyrm laughed out loudly. "Old fool Black Dragon, you machinated for a thousand years and aimed to scheme against us yellow flood dragons. In order to tie up loose ends, you even killed all my illegitimate children. Unfortunately, trying to assassinate the fish demoness has provoked Sword Immortal Qin. If your daughter continued staying in Flood Dragon Palace, he would probably have killed her in a single strike."

    "From this day forth, I will be the true king of Yellow Wyrm Lake."

    "Awesome!"

    Yellow Wyrm's eyes were filled with crazy delight.

    ...

    In Po Cloud Lake, Black Dragon Palace.

    "Good-for-nothing. All of you are good-for-nothings!" A massive black dragon lay prone in a coiled fashion. His eyes were burning with anger. "The yellow flood dragons nearly fell into my hand but you ended up giving them a chance."

    "Father." Dragon Queen stood by the side obediently. She no longer had the arrogant airs she had back at Flood Dragon Palace.

    "You even managed to offend a Paramount realm sword immortal while trying to assassinate a lowly fish demoness. You truly are..." Black Dragon looked at her.

    Dragon Queen obediently lowered her head. "I didn't expect it either. She was just an ordinary lesser fish demoness. How was I to know that Qin Yun would join in the fray?"

    "Let me think of another solution." Black Dragon squinted his eyes. "I can't let my plans be ruined because of Qin Yun. This has been in the works for a thousand years. I have put so much effort into this and I absolutely cannot let it go to waste."

    ******

    In Grand Dominance, Qin Manor. The 19th of February.

    After staying at home for quite a period of time, Qin Yun was done gathering all the required intelligence for his trip to the West Sea. He prepared to set off.

    "Brother Yun, are you really going alone?" Yi Xiao felt unwilling to part with him.

    "My trip might require me to deal with Curmudgeon Blacktide. It will be easier if I went alone," said Qin Yun with a smile. "If anything happens, I'll message you."

    "Alright then." Yi Xiao nodded.

    Qin Yun smiled faintly.

    In fact, dealing with Curmudgeon Blacktide would be nothing much. The most important goal was to save his mother-in-law! That made it unsuitable for Yi Xiao to accompany him for the time being. It would not be too late to tell after the matter was settled.

    "Alright, I'm leaving." Qin Yun gently hugged his wife.

    "Don't be careless just because you are at the Paramount realm. Make sure to be wary of everything," exhorted Yi Xiao as she hugged him.

    Qin Yun smiled and immediately tore through the skies. After reaching a high altitude, he transformed into a beam that rapidly headed west. Yi Xiao looked up and watched Qin Yun vanish from her line of sight.

    ...

    He traveled west using Beam Transformation Art the entire journey. Qin Yun set off in the morning and flew across the entire land from east to west. By noon, he reached the western coast and entered the massive West Sea.

    "Woosh~"

    The sea seemed boundless.

    "Xiaoxiao's mother violated the Dragon race's rules and was imprisoned for five centuries. In order to get her out, I definitely have to obtain the approval of the West Sea Dragon King and the various Elders of the West Sea Dragon race." Qin Yun nodded. "In that case, I might as well visit West Sea Dragon King directly."

    Whoosh.

    Qin Yun flew straight towards West Sea Dragon Palace.
