Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 152: Heaven Burning Furnace
The nosy Heavenly Yao Hall suddenly become quiet.
Recalling that scene of Ye Chuan activating Mountains and Rivers Restriction and contending against Heavenly Empress, the experts of Heavenly Yao Sect who had already drawn out their sword with killing intent, all of a sudden didn’t dare to act rashly.
White-haired Heavenly Empress sitting above in the hall also coldly looked at Ye Chuan, and her complexion sunk.
Since she set foot on the throne of Heavenly Empress, this was the first time someone dared to defy and contradict her in Heavenly Yao Hall. If instead of Ye Chuan, it was the disciples of Heavenly Yao Sect or even the elder of Daoist Master realm, then they would have surely died! But Ye Chuan standing below was particularly thorny.
Cloud Mist Sect was in decline, but the treaty of alliance between Cloud Mist Sect and Heavenly Yao Sect still exist, so if Ye Chuan, this Big Disciple of Cloud Mist Sect was killed, even if Cloud Mist Sect didn’t dare to come to ask for justice, this would give other sects a chance to gossip.
This was the first reason, but even more importantly, even if they risk everything to kill him, they might not be able to kill him.
Ye Chuan’s cultivation was nothing, was trivial Rank 2 Xiushi, simply was not worth mentioning in Heavenly Yao Sect which was filled with experts. But he was able to command Heavenly Pond’s guardian beast White Dragon, and also could activate very powerful Mountains and Rivers Restriction, so even Heavenly Empress could do nothing to him!
Now, what should they do?
Should they just be helpless like this or attack suddenly to kill Ye Chuan before he could activate the Mountains and Rivers Restriction?
Elder Tian Qing was short of breath, and Kumu warrior Tian Ku on another side was also ready to make the move, but without the command of Heavenly Empress, no one dared to make a move.
Heavenly Empress didn’t speak, just remained silent all the way.
Inside Heavenly Yao hall, the atmosphere became heavier and heavier, and the storm clouds approached. As long as Heavenly Empress commanded or even gave a single signal, numerous experts of Heavenly Yao Sect would rush over and tear Ye Chuan to shreds while he was still alive.
Ye Chuan also didn’t speak, calmly waited patiently. On the surface, he had a calm and composed appearance, but inwardly he was all the very tense, and with cold sweat, all of his underwear was already drenched.
In the battle beside Coiling Dragon Heavenly Pond, he amazed the world with a single brilliant feat, shocking the entire Heavenly Yao Sect, and even this generation Heavenly Empress had no choice but to have three-tenth of misgivings towards him. But, what was unknown to everyone was, after Mountains and Rivers Restriction blocked two attacks of Heavenly Empress, he had already used up his strength, and with white snake also in weakened state, even if he wanted to activate Mountains and Rivers Restriction in short time, it was impossible, so now he was outwardly strong but inwardly weak.
This was a gamble, gambling Elder Tian Qing and others as well as Heavenly Empress wouldn’t dare to struggle until the fish died or the net got torn!
Ye Chuan kept his calm, and didn’t reveal even a bit of flaw. He clearly didn’t have any strength to battle again, still, he assumed the air of having a well-thought-out plan.
Luckily, he gambled right, thinking thrice, Heavenly Yao Sect didn’t dare to act recklessly.
“Youngster, Heaven Burning Furnace is our Heavenly Yao Sect’s defining treasure, according to principle, it is impossible to lend it, but……” Heavenly Empress spoke taking the initiative to break the silence.
Elder Tian Qing cried out in alarm wanting to stop, but Heavenly Empress waved her hand. She clearly had already made the decision.
“Heavenly Empress, do you want the technique to activate that ancient restriction?” Ye Chuan asked understanding the thoughts of Heavenly Empress. Using Heaven Burning Furnace to exchange the technique to activate Mountains and Rivers Restriction, this exchange was not too much of a deficit for Heavenly Yao Sect.
“That’s right, what, youngster, are you unwilling?” Heavenly Empress looked at Ye Chuan.
“No, no problem, it’s just a trivial technique, to begin with, this Mountains and Rivers Restriction belong to your Heavenly Yao Sect.”
Ye Chuan naturally said at ease, then with a flick of his finger, a jade bamboo slip floated in front of Heavenly Empress.
The eyes of Heavenly Empress suddenly shone, then scanning with her divine sense, the jade slip in front of her changed into a speck of dust, but the technique recorded in the slip was imprinted in her mind. After that, she closed her eyes for a while, the nodding her head, she slowly opened her eyes and said, “Good, good, what a Mountains and Rivers Restriction. I really have never expected that my Heavenly Yao Sect’s founder had unexpectedly left behind this kind of technique! Ye Chuan, was it? How did you learn the existence of this restriction?”
In an instant, Heavenly Empress comprehend the technique to activate Mountains and Rivers Restriction. After she had cultivated to this realm, only a hint was all that was needed for her to comprehend all kinds of techniques, and the speed of cultivating the techniques was also far beyond the imagination of ordinary people.
“If I say I read in a book, then Heavenly Empress, do you believe?” Ye Chuan smiled.
Heavenly Empress nodded her head, and didn’t try to get to the bottom of this matter. She didn’t give priority to how Ye Chuan know it, rather she was happy that this technique returned to Heavenly Yao Sect again, giving her sect another trump card!
“Heavenly Empress, now, can I take-away Heaven Burning Furnace?” Ye Chuan used the technique wanting to take away Heaven Burning Furnace and leave.
“Slow down!” Heavenly Empress suddenly called out.
The complexion of Ye Chuan changed slightly, then coldly looking at white-haired Heavenly Empress, he said, “What, Heavenly Empress, do you want to go back on your word?”
After reaching the status and realm of Heavenly Empress, regardless of anything, she should be a figure with a decisive word. Ye Chuan had never considered that she would go back on her word, this was slightly unexpected. But, if Heavenly Empress really wanted to go back on her word, then it’s not like he was also powerless. The activating technique of Mountains and Rivers Restriction, he had truly passed to Heavenly Empress, moreover, he concealed nothing and did everything naturally and openly. However, he also had a move in his hand, the technique to destroy Mountains and Rivers Restriction.
This technique was completely different from the technique to activate Mountains and Rivers Restriction, in those years, he didn’t even pass it to Blue Eyed Yao Empress.
Mountains and Rivers Restriction was the gift he gave to Heavenly Yao Sect’s founder Blue Eyed Yao Empress when Heavenly Yao Sect was just built. And all under the heaven, only he alone could destroy this ancient restriction. If white-haired Heavenly Empress didn’t keep her word and backed out, then don’t blame him for falling out with them and destroy this ultimate sect protecting restriction of Heavenly Yao Sect, destroying the foundation of Heavenly Yao Sect. Like this, this sect which was aspiring to the throne of the unequaled sect in the continent would suffer a drastic decline.
“Why, can’t this mistress go back on her words?” The complexion of Heavenly Empress became gloomy and cold, as she was becoming hostile.
Heavenly Maiden who was standing behind Heavenly Empress was delighted, and she immediately pulled out her flying sword, preparing to make a move. As long as Heavenly Empress ordered, she would use an all-out attack to pierce the heart of Ye Chuan. And below, the experts of Heavenly Yao Sect standing on two sides as if they had a tactic understanding, surrounded Ye Chuan. Each and every one was full of killing intent, and now let alone a living person, even a fly couldn’t fly out alive.
If the winds of Cloud Mist Sect’s Big Disciple Ye Chuan was killed in Heavenly Yao Hall was spread outside, then others would hold them in contempt, but as long as Heavenly Empress gave the order, the experts of Heavenly Yao Sect wouldn’t defy her orders.
“Is that so? Then you can try me, I can activate your Heavenly Yao Sect’s ultimate restriction, so naturally, I can also destroy that restriction, completely destroying the foundation of your Heavenly Yao Sect.” Ye Chuan indifferently answered. Even facing the pressure of so many experts of Heavenly Yao Sect as well as Heavenly Empress, he didn’t even bat an eyelid.
The heart of numerous experts of Heavenly Yao Sect shook.
Fist, no need to mention whether Ye Chuan had such ability or not, solely in imposing manner, who could match with him?
“Hahaha, hahahaha, good, good, what a sect’s Big Disciple! Truly unexpected, seriously declined Cloud Mist Sect actually has this kind of talent! Youngster, don’t take offense, the matter this mistress promised, how could I back out, I was merely joking with you, nothing more.”
Looking at Ye Chuan, Heavenly Empress suddenly laughed heartily and then looking Ye Chuan up and down, she lowered her voice, “But, Heaven Burning Furnace is the peerless treasure that is suppressing our Heavenly Yao Sect’s fate, and it’s not a small matter. Moreover, even though this mistress lend it to you, but it depends on whether you have to capability to take it away or not. How about this, you and my disciple Hong Zixia compete to see who can stay longer inside Heaven Burning Furnace, if you win, then feel free to take it away!”
Heavenly Empress didn’t go out of her words, but gave Ye Chuan a difficult problem.
Hearing Heavenly Empress, the eyes of all the experts of Heavenly Yao Sect inside Heavenly Yao Hall shone. This move of Heavenly Empress would definitely force Ye Chuan to retreat.
Although both of them were disciples of the younger generation, but what was the cultivation realm of Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia, and what was the cultivating realm of Ye Chuan. Just the difference in cultivation realm clearly showed who would be the victor.
Elder Tian Qing who attended to numerous affairs every day was cunning and crafty, and was known as the old fox of Heavenly Yao Sect, but compared to Heavenly Empress, he was still inexperienced. White haired-Heavenly Empress who had just come out from the seclusion of thousand years, as if producing clouds with one turn of the hand and rain with another, instantly thought of a surefire plan.
