True Martial World - chapter-221
The first day of the rookie ranking competition ended.
Yi Yun had fought a total of five battles and easily won them all!
The other seven matches ended with his opponents taking the initiative to
throw in the towel.
Those who were waiting to see Yi Yun turn into a joke were dumbfounded.
The members of the Hongdao Association no longer had any temper. What
else could they say after being bullied by Yi Yun in this way?
There were those who wanted to bite down on Yi Yun, thinking he was a fat
lamb for the slaughter, but they had been stopped by the Hongdao
Association. For this, they felt very fortunate.
They were extremely grateful towards the Hongdao Association for pulling
them back in time, preventing them from falling into the fire pit. If
not, that one brick would have taught them how to lead a proper life.
At the end of the first day’s competition, according to the rules, the
losers had to pay the winners their dragon scale runes.
Ten Hongdao Association members including the Four Bully Lords lined up
to hand over their dragon scale runes to Yi Yun.
Usually when they lined up, it was to collect resources or cultivation
grounds or other various good stuff. Even the worst lines were for them
to line up to buy fried dough or for the bathroom. But now, they were
lining up to give their dragon scale runes to someone else.
These dragon scale runes were obtained from pawning all of their

It was obvious how they felt.
Yi Yun held his identity token and looked ecstatically at the stacks of
dragon scale runes flying towards him.
He laughed happily saying, “Generous, you guys are so generous. Thank
you everyone for your kind generosity. You know that me being a newcomer,
things are not easy, and you all especially came to give me dragon scale
runes to spend. I’m so grateful!”
Upon hearing Yi Yun’s words, those Hongdao Association members, whose
hearts and livers were hurting, nearly vomited blood.
Yi Yun actually said that it wasn’t easy for him to be a newcomer?
His net worth was even higher than many second and third year cultivators
in the Tai Ah Divine City, let alone the rookies!
Seeing Yi Yun’s brilliant smile, they really wanted to punch him, but
too bad… they could not beat him.
“And the interspatial ring, don’t forget it…”
Yi Yun reminded Fatty from the Four Bully Lords. He had not collected

Fatty’s mouth twitched twice. He looked at the green interspatial ring
on his hand, and his fingers trembled as he took off his ring.
This ring was a gift given to him by his family clan for his twelfth
In the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom, special attention was paid to the important
birthdays for a boy, which were at 12 years old, 15 years old and 20
Twelve years old was the time a child abandoned their childishness which
the elders blessed with a gift. Fifteen years old was when a child could
consummate with a girl. Twenty years old was the official hallmark of
being an adult.
Fatty’s feeling of giving away this gift of blessing that he received
at twelve was clear.
When he went back to his family clan, his elders would reprimand him if
they found out.
But the Tai Ah Divine City operated this way. One had to pay the price of
defeat according to the Tai Ah Divine City’s rules.
“Are… Are you going to wear all four rings?”
The Four Bully Lords’ Scrawny asked disgruntledly.

“Of course I can wear them. Who says I can’t? I can wear eight on one
hand easily. I can wear four rings using two fingers.”
While saying this, Yi Yun placed the four rings on his left hand’s
middle and ring finger. Each finger wore two rings.
Yi Yun was pleased upon seeing this.
He finally had interspatial rings. It would be more convenient when he
went into the Divine wilderness to hunt desolate beasts.
As for the #60 herb mountain, he reckoned he would not be going there as
Seeing Yi Yun wear four rings on one hand, with the face of a nouveau
riche, Scrawny swallowed his saliva and stared silently.
Yi Yun went back fully loaded with riches. Many looked at Yi Yun’s back
with burning eyes.
As for Zhou Kui, Song Zijun and the other youths who followed Baldy Qin,
they were at a loss for words. Yi Yun’s earnings in a day was more than
what they made in a year.
They finally understood that their worry over Yi Yun in the past had been

“Ah! If I knew earlier, I would have bet more! I only bet 50 dragon
scale runes that Yi Yun would win more than ten rounds…”
Zhou Kui gave a look of regret. Fifty dragon scale runes was not a small
sum to him. When he made the bet, he was extremely worried because he
felt ten rounds were way too much.
But now, Yi Yun had not even used his saber to win ten rounds. It was a
pity. If he knew this earlier, he would have thrown all his assets on it!
At night, in a bright and spacious house amongst the upper class
residences in the Tai Ah Divine City.
A puppet beast was rolling on the floor while sweeping away the dust.
This puppet was used by some families in the capital to clean the floor.
Of course, the Tai Ah Divine City did not provide such items. However,
some sons from big family clans would bring such puppets to the Tai Ah
Divine City to clean their houses.
“Oh? You want me to challenge Yi Yun tomorrow?”
In this room, a effeminate youth leaned on a bed while playing with a
lancet flying dagger.

Sitting beside this effeminate youth was a slight chubby youth with a
grim face. This person was none other than the Hongdao Association’s
President, Li Hong.
“That’s right! Brother Liu is ranked sixth among the rookies. Your
movement techniques are superb. In the capital city, only a few people do
not know of your famous name, Liu Yuxing.”
Li Hong’s idea was simple. Since the Tai Ah Divine City’s rules only
allowed at most twelve matches a day for the rookie rankings competition.
This prevented the contestants from being over-exhausted that would
result in a decline in strength.
But for Yi Yun who won without battling, he could have additional matches.
Hence, Li Hong wanted Liu Yuxing to come out to defeat Yi Yun. This was
the way to end Yi Yun’s winning streak.
At least, he could save on the losses the Hongdao Association had
incurred from opening up the betting pool. If not, he would have to give
Yi Yun 50,000 dragon scale runes.
This would be equivalent to cutting off a piece of flesh from Li Hong.
“Haha, Brother Hong, does your Hongdao Association not have anyone that
can stop Yi Yun?”
Li Hong shook his head, “Among the second year cultivators, there are
many that can beat Yi Yun. But amongst the rookies, there really are

The Hongdao Association was after all inferior to a large association
like the Luohuo Association which had been established for 3-4 years. Its
foundation was still not established, and many of the outstanding rookies
did not join the Hongdao Association, but joined other larger
associations. Those associations could give better benefits, while Li
Hong’s promised benefits only came into effect 2-3 years later.
As a result, Li Hong did not manage to recruit anyone in the top 20 of
the rookie rankings. There were also lone wanderers like Qiuniu and Chu
Xiaoran, who did not join any association.
Liu Yuxing was ranked sixth. Li Hong wanted to him to go up against Yi
Yun because they had known each other for some time and considered each
other as friends.
As for Qiuniu and Chu Xiaoran, Li Hong never came into contact with them.
He might not be able to pull his weight with them. And even if he could,
they were ranked ahead of Yi Yun. If they challenged Yi Yun, Yi Yun could
also reject it.
“Brother Hong, friendship may be friendship, but we need to make things
clear. That Yi Yun has not even used his weapon yet. And without a
weapon, he could still defeat the Bully Lords with one move. This means
he has skill!”
“Although the power he has displayed up to now is of no threat to me,
but who knows, he might have plenty of hidden strength?”
“This time, I plan to rush up to the top 5000 of the Earth ranks. Yi
Yun still hasn’t gone up there yet. Even if I win against him, I would
just replace his 10,003 spot. Besides that, there aren’t any
“Me being born in the Duke’s residence, and Yi Yun being born from
the Cloud Wilderness. He has nothing to lose. If I win over Yi Yun,
people will say that is expected, and will even add to Yi Yun’s
reputation. Yi Yun would be said to be so strong that the Duke’s
residence’s Liu Yuxing came to challenge him.”
Liu Yuxing said slowly. As a really strong expert amongst the capital’s
sons, he was completely different from the gangsters like the Four Bully
Lords. He also knew how to cherish himself. Under normal circumstances,
why would he challenge a kid from the Cloud Wilderness?
It was equivalent to a noble disciple competing with a country bumpkin.
This meant a lowering of Liu Yuxing’s status.
“If you win against Yi Yun, I will give you 3000 dragon scale runes as
Li Hong knew why Liu Yuxing was resisting it. He made Yi Yun sound strong
only for some payment.
Hearing Li Hong’s words, Liu Yuxing laughed, “Brother Hong sure is
understanding. However, 3000 is too little. 8000 dragon scale runes, take
it or leave it!”
Liu Yuxing made a ridiculous bargain making Li Hong stare, “8000!? You
are just going to fight once! And you want 8000?”
Liu Yuxing was strong, but 8000 dragon scale runes was too much. Liu
Yuxing also didn’t earn dragon scale runes that easily during this
period as a rookie.
“Heh! If Yi Yun were to win another 8 more rounds, you will need to pay
50,000. I only want 8000. It’s not unreasonable.”
Liu Yuxing hit Li Hong’s sore spot and quoted an outrageous price.
Li Hong gritted his teeth and said, “Alright… 8000 it is, but only if

“Rest assured!” Liu Yuxing laughed and stood up from the bed. “A
kid from the Cloud Wilderness only beat up a bunch of goons. How could I
lose to him?”
The Four Bully Lords and the other Hongdao Association members were
ranked in the hundreds. The difference in strength between them and Liu
Yuxing’s sixth place was indeed large.
This was the reason why Liu Yuxing was so confident.
