True Martial World - Chapter 414
Chapter 414: Great Empress Heart Sutra
An administrator of the Lin family brought the soul contract forth.
It was an ancient scroll, made of a primordial species’or a primordial true spirit’s hide. The soul contract was engraved with complicated runes that specified the contract.
Surrounded by all the runes, there was a hideous ghost head image.
Upon seeing the soul contract, the Thousand Hand Granny sneered as she cleanly cut her finger with a dagger, dropping her blood onto the contract’s ghost head.
After the ghost head came into contact with the Thousand Hand Granny’s blood, it suddenly came to life and flew out of the contract reel, straight into the Thousand Hand Granny’s heart.
This ghost head was a curse. Whoever signed the soul contract, and did not have the power to counteract the soul’s curse, would have their hearts eaten by the ghost head and die if they were to breach the contract.
Yi Yun also dripped his blood onto the soul contract. When the ghost head entered his body, Yi Yun felt his body suddenly turn cold. It was as if his soul had separated from his body for a split second!
At this moment, the Thousand Hand Granny looked at Lin Xintong.
Without any hesitation, Lin Xintong gently stroked her nail across her index finger, and with a flick of her slender fingers, a drop of blood flew a distance of sixty to seventy feet, straight onto the soul contract.
Seeing Lin Xintong’s blood form a runic seal on the soul contract, a contented smile appeared on Shen Tu Nantian’s face.
“Miss Xintong’s actions sure are cool…”
Shen Tu Nantian flapped his fan as he looked at Lin Xintong. Seeing Lin Xintong’s graceful body line, an imperceptible look of greed flashed in Shen Tu Nantian’s eyes. After today, this woman of the highest grade would be his!
Shen Tu Nantian was already looking forward to the pleasures that a man and woman would enjoy together, but this was not the most important thing…
The more important thing was that the Shen Tu family clan had not only obtained the Great Empress ancient recipe in the ancient mystic realm, they had also found a remnant copy of a cultivation technique left behind by the peerless Great Empress of old, “Great Empress Heart Sutra”.
This “Great Empress Heart Sutra”was a technique for cultivation intercourse, and it greatly benefited the man.
However, the cultivation technique required the woman to have the purest Yin body.
In ancient times, only the peerless Great Empress would be a candidate.
And now, there was only Lin Xintong.
After receiving Lin Xintong’s primordial Yin body, and having cultivation intercourse with Lin Xintong, Shen Tu Nantian himself could begin cultivating the “Great Empress Heart Sutra”. This was a huge opportunity for Shen Tu Nantian!
This is also why Shen Tu Nantian was trying to push for the marriage with the Lin family through all means.
“It is finally signed!”
Shen Tu Nantian looked at the soul contract scroll. The mark left behind by Lin Xintong made him extremely excited.
After today, Lin Xintong is mine!
No matter how pure you are, with you not showing signs of flirtation to anyone, wouldn’t you end up ripe for my picking in the future?
Just thinking of this made Shen Tu Nantian suffuse an evil smile on his lips.
At this moment, Yi Yun had already stood in front of the Great Empress relic. He looked at Shen Tu Nantian, then at the Thousand Hand Granny and the long-browed elder.
The three of them were now standing in front of Yi Yun.
“Shall we begin?”
Shen Tu Nantian said with a mocking smile. He wanted to see Yi Yun feeling troubled.
“Yes, all of you should know the Mystic Crystal Hand, right!?”
Yi Yun’s retort made people speechless. The Mystic Crystal Hand again!
Could this Yi Yun do something fresh and new?
The long-browed elder frowned. He had not used a low grade sealing technique like the Mystic Crystal Hand for many years. Without mincing one’s words, using this sealing technique would only degrade his status!
“Little friend, what is the meaning of this? Are you trying to use me for your amusement?”
“Even if I want to use all of you for my amusement, I would not use it at the cost of my life. It’s just that… I only know the Mystic Crystal Hand at this moment, so I have to use it.”
He only knew the Mystic Crystal Hand?
When people saw Yi Yun use the Mystic Crystal Hand all the time, people were already suspicious about it. However, with Yi Yun saying it himself, they felt extremely speechless. A genius Desolate Heaven Master could only use one technique, the Mystic Crystal Hand?
“Hahaha!”Shen Tu Nantian could not help but laugh. This retard only knew how to use the Mystic Crystal Hand and he dared to evaluate this world’s top-grade Great Empress relic. Was he out of his mind!?
Just as Shen Tu Nantian was about to mock Yi Yun, Yi Yun was the first to speak as he nonchalantly said, “Young master Nantian, what are you laughing about? You are so happy! Speaking about this, it shouldn’t be a problem for you to use the Mystic Crystal Hand now, right? It must be extremely easy for Young master Nantian to use such a simple sealing technique. As for the minor injuries Young master Nantian incurred half a month ago, I believe they have completely healed, right!?”
Yi Yun’s easygoing words made Shen Tu Nantian’s face change slightly!
Yes, as the Mystic Crystal Hand was too simple, he had nearly forgotten that he was injured!
“What? Young master Nantian has yet to recover?”
Yi Yun asked in a puzzled manner. However, under the mask, his lips curled up gently. He could have used a master like the Thousand Hand Granny to help him, but he had forcefully pulled Shen Tu Nantian into the picture because he had long decided to screw with Shen Tu Nantian again.
Yi Yun was always a petty person, so he would not let go of any chance to screw with Shen Tu Nantian.
Shen Tu Nantian’s expression sunk. He was extremely proud and he would work extremely hard to maintain his modest and calm image in front of others.
He lived for his reputation.
Half a month ago, the news of his soul being severely damaged at the Desolate Heaven Master tea session was kept under wraps by the Shen Tu family clan. If the news that the heir of the Shen Tu family clan could not recover despite using great quantities of treasured medicine just because of a performance to the point of needing at least a year to nurse his injuries was leaked… wouldn’t it cause people to laugh till their guts burst?
Unfortunately, Yi Yun was a person who specialized in smacking the faces of others. He would randomly expose Shen Tu Nantian’s scars, which made Shen Tu Nantian unable to do anything but rage.
“Hmph, it was just a minor injury. Just some nursing was enough!”
Shen Tu Nantian’s facial muscles twitched. At this moment, it was not a matter of face, but the critical point was that the soul contract had been signed. The condition of them helping Yi Yun to prove the defect in the Great Empress relic was also written in the soul contract.
If Shen Tu Nantian did not fulfill the conditions of the contract, he was not sure if Yi Yun could find a loophole causing the soul contract to end up being void, then he would lose greatly.
As such, Shen Tu Nantian had to force himself in doing so.
“Haha, then that’s great!”Yi Yun gave a malicious smile. He gently touched the Great Empress relic with the tip of his finger. “My abilities are lacking, so although I may be able to form the Mystic Crystal Hand’s seals, it is impossible for me to control the energy in the Great Empress relic from the seals I form. Hence, I will need to use your strength.”
“All of you just need to form the seals. There is no need to control them, for I will take the lead!”
Actually, with the Purple Crystal, Yi Yun could extract the energy from the Great Empress relic himself, but it would be too shocking.
It was more reasonable to use the Thousand Hand Granny’s and the long-browed elder’s strength.
“Has the desolate beast arrived yet?”
Yi Yun looked at the Lin family. An Elder stood up and took a desolate beast out of a spirit beast pocket.
It was Fire-eyed Wolf. It was about the size of a dog and had very weak attacking powers. Typically, it would only attack Mortal Blood realm warriors and eat their organs.
At this moment, the Fire-eyed Wolf was being restricted by a seal. It gritted its teeth as it continuously struggled.
“It is this Fire-Eyed Wolf. It was chosen according to your requirements.”
The Elder threw the Fire-eyed wolf towards Yi Yun.
“Alright, let’s begin!”
Yi Yun gave a satisfied nod, “The three of you, please begin forming the seals. The Mystic Crystal Hand has a total of a hundred seals. You just need to do it from the beginning. I believe that with the standard of the three of you, the seals formed will be perfect!”
Yi Yun was not afraid that these people would secretly make any trouble for there were so many people looking. Naturally, they would not form the wrong seals.
“Hmph! You have only about an hour of your life left. Enjoy it while you can!”
The Thousand Hand Granny sneered as her thin fingers moved. The first seal of the Mystic Crystal Hand was nearly instantly completed. It was flawless.
For her, a seal at this level was child’s play.
Yi Yun opened his energy vision and observed the Thousand Hand Granny’s seals. He knew that under the focus of so many people and the constraints of the soul contract, the Thousand Hand Granny would not dare to mess around. However, as he was naturally cautious, Yi Yun still used his energy vision to inspect it to make sure that the seal did not have any traps like a spiritual attack embedded within it. Only then did Yi Yun use his mental energies to pull the seal towards him.
Next, Yi Yun pulled the seal from the long-browed elder.
With the two seals in hand, one on the left and one on the right, Yi Yun looked at Shen Tu Nantian.
“Young master Nantian, it’s your turn… ”Yi Yun said those words with deep meanings.
Everyone’s eyes also began turning towards Shen Tu Nantian.
Shen Tu Nantian’s expression looked ugly. He grunted before beginning to form the seals hiding the difficulty he felt behind a calm face.
However, this seal had affected his soul. Shen Tu Nantian immediately felt the pain in his soul. It was like a needle pricking him and the pain was excruciating!
Shen Tu Nantian gritted his teeth and endured the pain. Bit by bit, he completed the seal. The Mystic Crystal Hand which could not have been any simpler now caused Shen Tu Nantian great pain.
“Kid, I’ll let you be arrogant for a little while. After you fail, you will fall into my hands, and I will let you know what it means to lead a life worse than death!”
With this thought in his mind, Shen Tu Nantian managed to use it as support to complete the first seal with great difficulty.
Finally, the seal was considered to be perfect, allowing Shen Tu Nantian to maintain his image.
Yi Yun pulled the seal towards him and scanned the seal with his energy vision. His mouth curled slightly, “Young master Nantian is indeed awesome. I believe the remaining 99 seals won’t be a problem!”
Yi Yun’s words nearly made Shen Tu Nantian gasp. Shen Tu Nantian looked grimly at Yi Yun, wishing to skin Yi Yun alive.
“This kid!”He clenched his fists tightly with his heart burning with rage. “You can only live for another hour! So what if I tolerate you for just a moment?”
