    Chapter 589: Tolerance

    Translator: CKtalon  Editor: CKtalon

    While Qin Yun casually killed the wolf demon, a man in a regal gown was leisurely fishing by a lake in the Heavenly realm. Beside him, a child was waiting upon him.

    "Oh? That vile beast has been killed?" The man pricked up his brows as he looked far into the distance. Through the void, he saw an ordinary Heavenly general and Qin Yun who carried the Qingping Sword on his back. When Qin Yun sensed that he was being spied upon, he turned his head to look back. It left the man's heart palpitating. "As expected of the best Itinerant Immortal in the Three Realms. He could sense my secret spying."

    "That good-for-nothing really knows how to stir up trouble. I could have ignored his provocation of the Heavenly Courts since the Heavenly Courts needs to take my Jade Void Palace in consideration, but he ended up provoking Green Touring Palace's Qin Yun!" The man frowned slightly.

    He lowered his fishing rod and stood up.

    "Child, return to the cave abode first," instructed the man.

    "Yes, Master," answered the child.

    The man immediately took a step and departed.

    ...

    "To me, a mere wolf demon is nothing but a stinky worm. However, he ultimately had the strength of a half-step Sagedemon. As a lowly Heavenly general, especially one at the ordinary ninth firmament Skyimmortal realm, you were simply courting death by fighting him one on one even though you cultivate your body," said Qin Yun with a smile. "Saving someone is good, but if you can't tell the difference in strength, it's simply courting death. Not only would you fail to save the person, you might even be sending yourself to your death. That would be somewhat silly."

    Qin Yun still had a good impression of the Heavenly general.

    A person who could ignore death to save a complete stranger was worthy of respect.

    "Senior Qin, I'm not a rash person. I was planning on secretly saving her without alerting the wolf demon," said the silver-armored general, Bai Fu, immediately. "I never expected the wolf demon to be so cunning as to leave a mark on the woman. So the moment I took her on an escape of the wolf demon's lair, the wolf demon immediately learned of it."

    Qin Yun nodded slightly.

    The woman in the red bridal gown flew over. "Thank you for saving my life, General. Thank you for saving my life, Senior."

    "Are you still returning?" inquired Bai Fu.

    "Returning?" The woman smiled bitterly. "They were willing to obediently hand me over to the Demon King when faced with him. How can I return now? It's best I find a tranquil spot and cultivate in peace. Although I'm weak and was unable to resist the Demon King, I've cultivated to the first firmament Essence Soul realm. I won't die from hunger and thirst at the very least."

    "I know of a fairy. I can send you to her Daoist temple for cultivation. Are you okay with that?" asked Bai Fu.

    "I'll leave it all to you, General," replied the woman obediently. The way she looked at Bai Fu took on a queer luster.

    The fact that this Heavenly general had risked his life to save her when she was abandoned by everyone had no doubt stirred her heart.

    Qin Yun shook his head slightly when he saw this.

    With his attainments in karma, he could easily infer that the woman was destined to have one-sided feelings. Bai Fu already had marriage karma binding him, and it was a very deep tie.

    "Oh?" Qin Yun frowned slightly as he began inferring with his fingers. "This Heavenly general's marriage is in a Small World. And the bondage goes rather deep. It seems it will result in great trouble? It will likely be a life-and-death calamity for this Bai Fu. However, there is a sliver of hope in this calamity. For me to meet him today, it's likely where that sliver of hope belies."

    Qin Yun understood this point.

    The future had yet to happen. Inferring the future only led to hazy outlook.

    If it were a mortal with a lifespan of about a hundred years, Qin Yun could naturally perceive everything at a glance.

    For a Skyimmortal, although his strength was much weaker than Qin Yun's, Qin Yun's Seven Stars Art could only barely infer that the Heavenly general would meet with a calamity! It was a calamity that would result from marriage karma. As for what the calamity was? Or what kind of encounters he would have? That was not inferable.

    "Senior Qin, I will be taking her away, so I bid you farewell," said Bai Fu respectfully. The woman was also very reverent. She knew that her homeworld's nation had to bow its head against a Demon King and that this general from the Heavenly Courts was not the Demon King's match; yet, the Demon King had been easily killed by this mysterious person. Clearly, he was someone of great importance.

    "Keep this well." Qin Yun flipped his hand and produced a tiny wooden sword and casually threw it out, sending it in front of Bai Fu.

    Bai Fu received it in a daze, but he could sense that the tiny wooden sword contained a terrifying force.

    "When the day comes that you encounter a life-and-death calamity, smash it to bits," said Qin Yun.

    "Thank you, Senior Qin." Bai Fu bowed deeply in gratitude.

    "Alright, you may leave," urged Qin Yun.

    "Yes."

    Bai Fu could only bury the gratitude in his heart as he left with the woman on a cloud.

    Qin Yun watched the duo leave before turning his head to look at a spot nearby. He smiled and said, "Fellow Daoist Yang, you may come out now."

    "Hahaha, I knew I couldn't hide from you, Dao Brother Qin." A man in a regal gown walked out of the void. He was none other than Jade Void Palace's Yang Cong.

    "Greetings, Dao Brother Qin, I'm Yang Cong." Yang Cong bowed. Although he was a mighty figure, he was only an ordinary Golden Immortal! Compared to a pinnacle Golden Immortal like Qin Yun, the disparity in strength was huge, notwithstanding the fact that Qin Yun wielded the Qingping Sword! As Qin Yun's realm increased, he could deliver more of the Qingping Sword's strength. With it, he could even exchange a few blows with perfected Great Dao existences.

    So how could Yang Cong compare?

    "Fellow Daoist Yang, do you blame me for killing that wolf demon under you?" asked Qin Yun.

    "No, no, no," said Yang Cong immediately and earnestly. "Dao Brother Qin, to be honest, I don't care one bit that you killed that vile beast. I even applaud you for killing him. I have wanted to kill him numerous times, but apprehension stopped me every time. All I could do was tolerate him."

    "Apprehension?" Qin Yun looked at him.

    "Dao Brother Qin, you have not cultivated for long, so you are probably unaware," said Yang Cong. "But you should know that when we separate mighty figures in the Three Realms based on race, which race has the most?"

    "Naturally the humans," said Qin Yun.

    "Which race ranks second then?" asked Yang Cong.

    Qin Yun thought for a moment, "The demons."

    "Yes, the demons," said Yang Cong. "During the ancient Heavenly Courts, the demons were the biggest race in the Three Realms. Even now, they are only second to humans. The number of demons is sizable. You have to know that even the ancient Heavenly Courts only ruled over a number of demons. There were some extremely powerful demons who remained defiant as they continued ruling over an area. When the ancient Heavenly Courts was destroyed... both sides were unable to relentlessly attack one another. The humans had to placate the demons. After all, if they were not spared, an outright bloodbath would only cause both sides to suffer unacceptable losses.

    "A number of demons submitted, but there are still many demons that remain free. They can only abide by the rules and not wantonly wreak havoc," explained Yang Cong. "As long as they are being obedient, we cannot casually kill these demons who have submitted.

    "If you were to continue killing them when they have already submitted, how would the old demons not be enraged?" said Yang Cong. "This becomes even more apparent after the fiend uprising. Demons are demonic and ferocious to begin with. If we continue threatening them, it would serve to make all demons to join the fiends... Our side would then weaken immediately, while the fiends would immediately become much stronger. The Three Realms' situation would also immediately turn for the worse.

    "Therefore, although the Heavenly Courts has its rules and will capture Demon Kings with heinous sins, they would still be quite forgiving! They often turn a blind eye to minor matters, and even on the Demon Slaying Platform... some leeway will still be given," said Yang Cong.

    Yang Cong looked at Qin Yun. "It's not that we don't wish to kill them, it's that we can't unless they committed extremely heinous sins. If we use minor clashes as reason to kill, the wolf demon's master and uncle-master, as well as a bunch of Sagedemons, would definitely not rest on this matter."

    "Of course."

    Yang Cong smiled. "I couldn't kill him since he was my disciple. The Heavenly Courts has to rule over the Three Realms after all. It has to weigh many considerations, so it can't wantonly kill. However, Dao Brother Qin, you are independent and an Itinerant Immortal. The old demons wouldn't dare cross you."

    Qin Yun nodded slightly.

    The strongest faction in the Three Realms was actually the bunch of Chaos Godfiends! The Three Pure Ones, the Buddhist Ancestor, Goddess Nüwa, Heavenly Lord of Primordial Unity and Salvation, Goddess Houtu, Patriarch Blood Sea, Daoist Wen, and all the ancient existences were born out of the Chaos.

    However, that also meant that they were not united! In the earliest days, the Chaos Godfiends fought each other belligerently. Massive numbers died. It even caused Mighty God Gonggong to slam through Mt. Buzhou. It served as testimony to the deranged battles among the Chaos Godfiends. On the one hand, the number of ancient existences that remained were too few. On the other hand, the Chaos Godfiends were very limited in number. No new ones were produced.

    As for the humans and demons, they were constantly procreating, giving birth to countless experts.

    Therefore, humans were the biggest race in the Three Realms, while the demons were second!

    "They feel apprehensive towards me because I'm an Itinerant Immortal who can only live for ten thousand plus years, as well as the fact that I have not established a faction and have acted independently?" Qin Yun gained an understanding.

    "Those old demons wouldn't say a word about your killing of a half-step Sagedemon," said Yang Cong with a smile. "Even if Dao Brother Qin kills an ordinary Sagedemon, those old demons will only holler at best. My guess is that they will continue tolerating."

    "The unreasonable fears the crazy! I only have ten thousand plus years to live while they are immortal. They naturally wouldn't fight me easily," said Qin Yun.

    "Dao Brother Qin, you are extremely talented. Perhaps you might be able to transcend the twelfth Itinerant Immortal tribulation and obtain eternal life," said Yang Cong with a smile.

    Qin Yun smiled. "Alright, let's end this chat. I'll be returning."

    "Then I won't disturb you any further," said Yang Cong as he bowed with a smile.

    Qin Yun turned around and took a step as he departed by tearing through the sky.

    Yang Cong stood in midair watching before he heaved a slight sigh of relief.

    His Jade Void Palace had an old grudge with Green Touring Palace. If those ferocious Sagedemons were apprehensive of Qin Yun, then an ordinary Golden Immortal like him was even more afraid! He naturally had to rush here to explain the situation.
