Chapter 502: Flying Boat

    Chapter 502: Flying Boat

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    Beside the lotus pond in the sect master's cave abode, Yang Song, Sect Master Jade Tripod, the Dao Protector, and Qin Yun and his wife took their seats.

    All the attendants had been dismissed.

    "This is good wine." Qin Yun drank the wine and felt his psyche jolt. He could not help but marvel at it.

    Sect Master Jade Tripod said, "This is an immortal brew Uncle-Master made himself. It's called Truffle Wine. It takes ten thousand years to successfully brew it."

    "It's just a little hobby I do in my spare time," said Yang Song as he looked at Qin Yun smilingly. "Brother Qin, this is our first meeting, but I have heard your famous name several times in the recent decades."

    "The limelight only fell on me a few times," said Qin Yun with a smile. Yi Xiao only listened by the side silently as she drank. It was not her place to interject.

    After all, Yang Song was a third generation disciple of Jade Void Palace. It was an extremely high standing in the Effulgent dominion.

    "Haha, many immortals wish to be in the limelight, but they lack the strength to claim it," said Yang Song with a smile. "Palatial Lord Kuishi has the strength of a half-step Ancestral Fiend, but she could not do a thing to you. I'm truly impressed."

    "I only barely survived," said Qin Yun casually. He then went straight to the point. "Brother Yang, you happened to be in the Jade Tripod Sect and Sect Master Jade Tripod invited me here. Is there something you need of me?"

    Yang Song's brows lifted.

    This Qin Yun... was quite straightforward.

    "I do have something that I might need your help with, Brother Qin Yun."

    "You got Sect Master Jade Tripod to invite me when you are the one asking for my help?" Qin Yun frowned slightly.

    Yang Song smiled. "Brother Qin Yun, I read the intelligence regarding you in Jade Void Palace. I know you have some connections with the Jade Tripod Sect, so I had to thicken my skin and ask my disciple-nephew to invite you here."

    "Sword Immortal Qin, few people in my Jade Tripod Sect and Scenic Jade Palace know about your relationship with Meng Huan, and we have been keeping it a secret," explained Sect Master Jade Tripod immediately. "However, reporting it to Jade Void Palace is a rule. We could not violate it."

    Qin Yun nodded.

    The Dao residences of the three Dao Ancestors...

    Green Touring Palace, Jade Void Palace, Eight Scenic Palace...

    It was very normal for the Heavenly Lord of Primordial Beginning's Jade Void Palace to have detailed intelligence about him! After all, the ones-Jade Tripod Sect and Scenic Jade Palace-that knew of his relationship with Meng Huan were both of the Primordial Beginning lineage.

    "I wonder in what respect I am able to help you, Brother Yang?" Qin Yun continued drinking.

    "I have an enemy. The two brothers from Frost Shark Palace," said Yang Song.

    "Frost Shark Palace?" Qin Yun was astonished. "Those two Skyfiends are extremely powerful. Their combined strength is enough to match that of a half-step Ancestral Fiend. I have no way of dealing with them."

    There were a bunch of fiendish experts in the Effulgent dominion. On an individual level, the two brothers of Frost Shark Palace were in no way inferior to Demon King Bear Mountain.

    "Don't worry. I have long come up with a plan. Brother Qin Yun, all you need to do is cast your Heavenly Cycle Stellar Realm and help us with your domain! The ones really doing the attacking will be me and Wood Dragon Protector," said Yang Song. "With your domain aiding us, Wood Dragon Protector and I are confident that we can kill the two Frost Shark Palace brothers. Although they are powerful, you were able to survive in front of Palatial Lord Kuishi. I believe there is no threat to your self-preservation."

    Qin Yun smiled. "Brother Yang, I never expected you to invite Wood Dragon Protector. I heard that he is a demon dragon from ancient times. He was later subdued by a Buddhist mighty figure, and it has been some time since he has shown himself."

    "Brother Qin Yun, are you willing to join forces with us?" Yang Song's eyes were filled with anticipation.

    At their level...

    Very few people were willing to risk their lives fighting Skyfiends! Getting someone to agree was very difficult.

    "I have been constantly fighting with the fiends recently, but I have yet to kill a seventh firmament Skyfiend or anything above that," said Qin Yun. "Prior to this, Palatial Lord Kuishi came to assassinate me. If I were to join forces with you and kill the two Frost Shark Palace brothers, the fiends will definitely hate me even more... It will also increase their desire to kill me."

    "Besides, I've not cultivated for long. It's best if I focus on my cultivation for now," said Qin Yun.

    Yang Song turned anxious when he heard that.

    "Brother Qin, you have extraordinary talent, which is why Palatial Lord Kuishi came to personally deal with you," said Yang Song immediately. "With the way the fiends work, they will only think of you as more of a threat after they fail once. How long can you hide?"

    "Perhaps they will temporarily give up after failing once." Qin Yun shook his head.

    Only empty promises were being made, and he was being asked to risk his life?

    It would have been fine if they were fellow disciples, but Yang Song was from the Primordial Beginning's Jade Void Palace! How could he help for nothing?

    "Oh," said Yang Song immediately. "Once the two Frost Shark Palace brothers are killed, both Wood Dragon Protector and you will each receive half the spoils of war. How about that? You should understand that I made many preparations to kill them. It's quite a substantial price."

    "Brother Yun, the two Frost Shark Palace brothers might have some hidden tricks up their sleeves. Back when you fought Bear Mountain, didn't his strength exceed your expectations? In a battle of life and death, who knows what unforeseen events might happen? Don't risk it," said Yi Xiao via voice transmission.

    Qin Yun naturally understood this point.

    This was the very reason one would not easily take action the stronger they were.

    Only the Physical Establishing Sages were relatively more combative.

    "Half of the spoils of war will be given to me?" Qin Yun drank the wine. "I'll only get the spoils of war if we successfully kill the two Skyfiends. If we fail, there would be nothing! Brother Yang, you speak rather positively, but in a real life-and-death battle, who knows what will really happen?"

    Yang Song heaved a sigh of relief.

    He could tell that Qin Yun was willing to help; he was just raising the conditions.

    "This Qin Yun has very few treasures since he hasn't cultivated for long. I heard that the most famous treasures he has are the Five Fires Calabash and Yin Water Chains. In terms of treasures, he can't even compare with Bear Mountain," thought Yang Song. "Perhaps one treasure will be enough to move him."

    Yang Song considered for a moment before he asked with a smile, "Brother Qin Yun, I wonder what sort of conditions I must meet before you'll be willing to help me?"

    "I'm a sword immortal with a very weak body. I'm afraid of death." Qin Yun placed his cup down and said casually, "Brother Yang Song, I heard that you have a Thousand Shadow Dark Boat which is good for escaping."

    Yang Song's expression changed slightly, but he clenched his teeth and flipped his hand. A tiny boat appeared in his palm.

    "If I give you this flying boat, you have to help me deal with the two Frost Shark Palace brothers." Yang Song looked at Qin Yun as the tiny boat flew towards Qin Yun.

    Qin Yun extended his hand and grabbed it. He nodded and said, "Don't worry. Since I've received your treasure, I am now tied to you by karma."

    "Haha, I also believe that you will not sabotage your cultivation for a mere flying boat." Yang Song immediately felt delighted seeing Qin Yun accept it.

    "Brother Yun." Yi Xiao could not help but send a worried voice transmission. "Are you really going?"

    "I have never killed overtly powerful Skyfiends, yet Palatial Lord Kuishi came to assassinate me. There is no need to elaborate how much the fiends want me dead. All I need to do is quickly raise my strength. By joining forces with them to kill the two Frost Shark Palace brothers, I'll obtain the spoils of war... With that, I can exchange for more Water of the First Essence and continue nurturing my Intrinsic Flying Sword," said Qin Yun via voice transmission. "Besides, I have always wished for a treasure that is good for fleeing. I've just been too poor, so now, I finally have my wish-come-true."

    Although he could engage in Sword Kinesis Flight, he needed to release his Intrinsic Flying Sword while fighting his enemies.

    Without his Intrinsic Flying Sword, his flight speed was too slow! The Thousand Shadow Dark Boat... made up for one of his weakness.

    "Haha, congratulations, Uncle-Master, for having your wish come true. Congratulations, Sword Immortal Qin for receiving such a treasure," said Sect Master Jade Tripod with a laugh.

    "Let's celebrate when we kill the two Frost Shark Palace brothers," said Qin Yun. "Brother Yang, when do we take action?"

    "It should be in the near future. I will contact Wood Dragon Protector again once we've make the adequate preparations," said Yang Song. "Brother Qin, are you able to set off at any time?"

    "Anytime," said Qin Yun.

    "Alright. As long as those two Frost Shark Palace brothers do not hide, we will take action soon," said Yang Song.

    "Alright." Qin Yun cast his gaze at Sect Master Jade Tripod. "I wish to meet Meng Huan. Is he in the sect?"

    "He is. He's cultivating at Ashen Azure Peak," said Sect Master Jade Tripod with a smile.

    "Shall we go over now?" asked Qin Yun. "However, it has to be kept a secret. I do not wish for my relationship with Meng Huan to be exposed. I'm afraid I would implicate him."

    "Alright. We shall head over secretly. We won't garner the attention of the inner sect disciples." Sect Master Jade Tripod nodded.

    "I'll go take a look as well," said Yang Song with a smile.

    ...

    Immediately, the five secretly left the sect master's cave abode and headed for Ashen Azure Peak.

    They secretly cast their Dharma spells. Sect Master Jade Tripod also controlled the sect's massive array. It was naturally very easy for him to avoid the disciples.

    "Ashen Azure Peak is one of the six peaks of my Jade Tripod Sect. Typically, disciples have to survive the tribulations to become Skyimmortals before they can enter the six peaks," said the Dao Protector with a chuckle. "Exceptions are made for a very small number of Essence Soul realm disciples with extremely high talent to allow them into the six peaks."

    "Thank you, Sect Master Jade Tripod and Dao Protector," said Qin Yun.

    Sect Master Jade Tripod and Dao Protector immediately smiled more radiantly when they heard Qin Yun thank them.

    "Meng Huan's talent is still rather high," praised Sect Master Jade Tripod.

    Swoosh.

    Soon, the five silently landed in Ashen Azure Peak.

    "I know where Meng Huan's cave abode is. I'll lead the way." The Dao Protector said as he headed forward.

    "No, Huan'er is there." Qin Yun pointed to the right. "He and I are are connected by karma. I can easily find him through our shared karma."

    "Yes, yes, karmic ties can't be wrong," added Sect Master Jade Tripod. "But why is he there instead of cultivating in his cave abode?"

    "Perhaps he's visiting friends," said Qin Yun with a smile.

    With that said, the five proceeded over.

    "I've not met Meng Huan before. This is our first time, right? Brother Yun, how do you think Meng Huan should address me? Eldest Mom?" said Yi Xiao via voice transmission.

    Qin Yun did not say a word.

    They soon arrived in front of a cave that led deep into mountain.

    "Oh?" Qin Yun was somewhat perplexed, but Sect Master Jade Tripod's expression turned slightly nasty. With their strength, they could easily sense the situation deep inside the cave. It was a dungeon and prisoners were impounded in there. As for Meng Huan, he was sitting there cross-legged in silence, in charge of watching the prisoners.

    "Why is Huan'er here?" Qin Yun continued heading in.

    Sect Master Jade Tripod and Dao Protector exchanged looks.

    "Why is this happening?" asked Sect Master Jade Tripod with a voice transmission.

    "The disciples are being too impudent." The Dao Protector was also enraged. They knew the rules of the sect, and easily figured out what the problem was.

    Yang Song looked at Sect Master Jade Tripod and the Dao Protector with a faint smile before continuing in.

    The five entered together and proceeded down the passageway.

    Soon, they saw prison cells. Those that could be impounded in Ashen Azure Peak were either ordinary Skyimmortals or demons.

    Meng Huan was dressed in an azure-colored robe, sitting alone on a mat with his legs crossed. He was guarding the dark dungeons silently.

    "Disciples of Ashen Azure Peak have sect missions. He might have taken on this mission," said Dao Protector immediately.

    Qin Yun swept his gaze and could hardly contain his anger. He said lightly, "Sect Master Jade Tripod, Dao Protector, there are seven Skyimmortals and nine Skydemons imprisoned here! But the one in charge of watching them is a mere third Firmament Essence Soul? If any of these prisoners were to escape, how would my son, Meng Huan, be able to stop them? Even if Huan'er gives a warning, the prisoner might very well kill him, isn't that so?"
