    Sou!

    Qin Yun did not stop flying as he passed through the ever-winding and constantly changing passageways. Finally, he arrived at the door of a rather hidden hall that was more than a hundred feet tall.

    "I'm here." Qin Yun smiled as he looked at the hall in front of him. It was the treasury. Flood Dragon King had moved all the treasures here ahead of time but was no longer able to remove them as he was under Black Dragon's constant surveillance.

    "Open." With a gentle wave of his hand, Qin Yun's Quintessential Essence Dharmic powers easily pushed open the door.

    The hall was filled with a large number of items. There were all sorts of treasured herbs, pills, and cultivation manuals.

    "By moving all the treasures here ahead of time, Flood Dragon King has saved me quite a bit of effort." Qin Yun took out a Cosmic Bag and immediately opened it.

    All the treasured herbs, pills, and manuals flew over and into the bag.

    "After I arrived in the Yellow Wyrm Grotto-heaven, Black Dragon and Jadeface followed closely behind." As Qin Yun put away the treasures, he pondered over the situation. "Flood Dragon King is the owner of the Yellow Wyrm Grotto-heaven. For the both of them to enter together like this, it is likely Flood Dragon King's doing. Is he planning on having them kill each other?"

    "It's no wonder he asked me to take away as much as I can. He probably had this plan in mind since the beginning. With Jadeface and Black Dragon here, this Grotto-heaven is bound to be exposed."

    Qin Yun knew what would happen after this.

    If either Jadeface or Black Dragon was able to get out with their life, the Grotto-heaven would definitely be exposed.

    If they died in the Grotto-heaven, the Po Cloud Lake Nine Demons alliance or Cloudfiend Mountain would definitely investigate the matter. Careful investigation will lead to them discovering the Grotto-heaven.

    "In terms of realm, Jadeface and Black Dragon are only slightly stronger than Xiahou Zhen," thought Qin Yun. "But when coupled with the Dharma spells and Dharma treasures... their strength is more than ten times that of Xiahou Zhen."

    ...

    After safely storing all the treasures in the treasury, Qin Yun continued searching area after area.

    This was because there were other treasures. And just because Flood Dragon King was unable to move them did not mean Qin Yun was unable to do so! He could forcibly move them away. If one was strong enough, even the Yellow Wyrm corpse that had been refined into a building could be completely taken away.

    "This is the chamber that was noted in the intelligence. It is also the only cultivation chamber in the Grotto-heaven."

    Qin Yun entered the chamber, which was about a thousand feet wide and five hundred feet tall. Such an expansive space allowed a flood dragon at the Connate realm to coil.

    "What deep pockets." Qin Yun's eyes lit up when he looked up. At the top of the chamber, resembling a roof to the firmaments, was a watery-blue crystal. It was about two feet wide.

    Sou!

    Qin Yun quickly flew up and got closer to the blue crystal. He carefully observed it and nodded. "It's a Cloudwater Stone Soul. I have never heard of such a large one before. Perhaps it was brought here by the Other Realm Yellow Wyrm."

    "Open!"

    He waved his hand.

    Instantly, a flying sword flew out.

    It was Elder Sword's first-grade flying sword, Seven Kills Sword. It disassembled into seven flying swords and they all began working hard at extracting the crystal.

    Although the wooden beams of the roof were made of a rather precious Purple Jade Nanmu, Qin Yun did not care if he damaged them in order to remove the Cloudwater Stone Soul. After all, the only things that caught his eye in the entire chamber were the Cloudwater Stone Soul and the four Firecloud Columns. The heart of the chamber's array was comprised of the four Firecloud Columns and the Cloudwater Soul Stone. Their combined cost was worth more than half a transcendent-grade Dharma treasure.

    All the treasures that he had taken from the treasury barely matched the two items here.

    It was evident that the Yellow Wyrm ancestor had fixed the true treasures he had brought from another realm in place on purpose. He wanted his descendants to benefit from them but also aimed to prevent them from being squandered.

    Connate realm demons were incapable of moving the crystal but Qin Yun was considered formidable among Essence Soul realm experts. It was not easy to prevent him from moving anything through force!

    "Bam! Bam! Bam!"

    The seven flying swords formed a world by themselves.

    The perfect combination was extremely intricate. In about thirty seconds, there was a light bang as the entire Cloudwater Stone Soul fell out.

    "Over here." Floating in midair, Qin Yun immediately opened his Cosmic Bag, sending the Cloudwater Stone Soul straight into it.

    "Next is the four Firecloud Columns." Qin Yun looked at his surroundings. The four columns propped up the entire chamber. Each of them was fiery red in color and were crystalline like jade. There were fiery fumes within them that gave them a fascinating appearance.

    The seven flying swords flew to one of the Firecloud Columns and began tearing down the fixed array formation in an extremely adept manner.

    They forcibly caused damage!

    The array formation maintained itself through the Heaven and Earth powers for tens of thousands of years. Furthermore, it was a fixed array formation. With a person presiding over it, its strength was naturally limited!

    A few moments later.

    "Rumble~" The three-hundred-and-sixty-foot long Firecloud Column finally collapsed. At the instant it collapsed, Qin Yun immediately used a Cosmic Bag to contain it. This Cosmic Bag was left behind by Elder Sword! It was at present the biggest Cosmic Bag that Qin Yun had. It had a space that spanned a thousand feet.

    ...

    Jadeface was probing one area after another. Only sufficiently precious treasures would catch his eyes. He did not think much of the ordinary treasures.

    "Oh? What's happening up ahead?" Jadeface saw the distorted end of the passageway. He could vaguely make out that a hall had collapsed. "It collapsed?"

    "Sou!"

    Jadeface transformed into a stream of light and, with a flash, he appeared in front of the hall's door. With a wave of his hand, the door was pushed open.

    He instantly saw a gray-robed youth turn his head to meet him. Seven flying swords were floating beside him.

    "Qin Yun?" Jadeface pricked up his brows but he walked in leisurely. He said, "I never expected you to be in this Grotto-heaven as well."

    After entering, he swept the area with his gaze.

    Jadeface's expression changed slightly. With his level of discernment, he could naturally tell that the cultivation chamber ought to have four Firecloud Columns! Furthermore, the core of the array at the top had a crevice. There had likely been a treasure embedded in it before.

    "The treasure in the chamber's roof and two Firecloud Columns have been taken by you, am I right?" Jadeface looked at Qin Yun.

    "They are with me." Qin Yun nodded.

    "Hmph, you sure have good luck." Jadeface gently waved his feathered fan and instructed, "Alright. This place now belongs to me. Quickly scram."

    Qin Yun smiled. "You sure talk big."

    "You have already snatched two of the Firecloud Columns and the treasure at the top of the chamber. I'm being merciful by not taking them back from you," said Jadeface coldly. "As a mere sword immortal, you shouldn't push your luck."

    Most Essence Soul entities treated mortals like ants.

    They were just unable to squash those ants to death because of the heavenly rules.

    "Merciful? You?" Qin Yun laughed. "Fiend Sovereign Jadeface, would you dare try to snatch it from me if I gave you the chance?"

    Jadeface's expression immediately turned contorted.

    "Just exchanging blows with me might lead to relatively small karma but if you were to snatch my treasures..." Qin Yun paused with a sigh. "Of course treasures like the two Firecloud Columns and the Cloudwater Stone Soul represent immense amounts of karma! Besides, I, Qin Yun, have slain countless fiendish demons. I have accrued immense amounts of merit. If you were to take such great treasures from me, the karma would be severe."

    "Ah, I accidentally revealed the Cloudwater Stone Soul," said Qin Yun with a smile. "Whatever, so what if you know of it? Do you dare snatch it?"

    Jadeface's eyes turned extremely cold.

    If he were not afraid of karma and the tribulations, he would have long killed Qin Yun to snatch his treasures!

    "Scram!" Jadeface bellowed angrily. "Scram as far as you can. If you don't, I'll beat you till you do!"

    "Jadeface, I'm really curious." Qin Yun was in no way enraged. There was no need to be agitated by a fiendcelestial that was about to die. "Fiendish demons are currently at a disadvantage. You are a born and bred entity of this world. Why must you pledge allegiance to Other Realm Fiendcelestials? Why work for them?"

    Jadeface looked at Qin Yun and scoffed. He said, "I heard that you abhor evil? You even hunt down fiendish demons all across the world. Hmph, you might be in the limelight now, but once your five hundred years are up? Your children and descendants... Countless fiendish demons will seek revenge on them! Your Qin family will cease to exist. Your slaying of fiendish demons isn't helping anyone, and in fact will only bring trouble on your descendants. Aren't you a foolish one?"

    "Humans have a saying: Every man for himself and the Devil take the hindmost!" Jadeface scoffed. "In my opinion, so what if the world is invaded as long as I lead a good life? So what if billions of other creatures are destroyed?"

    Qin Yun nodded. "So fiendcelestials like yourself have such a thought process? For the sake of your wellbeing, you would rather the world be invaded and billions of living creatures destroyed?"

    Jadeface looked sarcastically at Qin Yun. "Alright. Enough of the crap. Quickly scram."

    He could not be bothered to waste his time on Qin Yun.

    He was in a rush to grab as many treasures as possible.

    "For yourself, you are willing to sacrifice billions of living creatures." Qin Yun nodded. "I'm one of those living beings. I don't wish to die so I'll kill you first."

    With that said, Qin Yun waved his hand.

    A sword beam shot out from his fingertip.

    Jadeface was still somewhat astonished and reeling in disbelief. A mortal sword immortal thought to kill him? It was the funniest joke he had ever heard! However, at the instant the sword beam shot out from Qin Yun's fingertip, Jadeface instinctively felt horrified!
