True Martial World - chapter-249
“The Chu royal residence’s young prince, Yang Dingkun… This Chu
royal residence should be the faction that was first in trying to draw me
Yi Yun recalled Xu Qingyun of the Linxiao Association. He first met Xu
Qingyun when a lobbyist of the Chu royal residence tried to draw him into
their faction by promising him many benefits.
But amongst the conditions given to him by the Chu royal residence, there
was a hidden soul contract. Once it was signed, he would have to serve
the Chu royal residences for many years.
It was then Xu Qingyun who stopped the lobbyist.
Although Yi Yun would most likely not have signed that unfair contract,
even without Xu Qingyun’s interference, it was still something that was
Yi Yun did not have a good impression of the Chu royal residence. Yang
Dingkun, who tried to take advantage of the situation to profit by
cheating him, was someone that Yi Yun would not mind swindling.
“The ‘Truth of the Laws’ then… alright, I’ll agree to it!” Yi
Yun said in a slow manner. He had initially set up a trap for Li Hong to
jump into, hoping to get more of Li Hong’s dragon scale runes. He did
not expect that there would be another person who would walk up to the
trap voluntarily and insist on jumping into it.
Hence, the stakes became bigger this time to the point that it exceeded
Yi Yun’s estimations.
“Young master Yi, they are ganging up to cheat you out of the ‘Tai Ah
Seeing Yi Yun agree, Zhao Qingcheng became worried. The girls that
surrounded him were also worried for Yi Yun.

Yi Yun may be strong, but Li Hong was a prominent figure amongst the
second year cultivators of the Tai Ah Divine City.
Li Hong was ruthless and he had a dark personality. His strength was also
horrifying. It would be hard for Yi Yun to beat him!
“Haha! That’s what you said! We have already recorded it with a video
disk array. We will now go to the arena administration to file it.
Don’t regret it now!”
The henchmen were overjoyed. Once it was filed, there would be no two
ways about it.
But Yi Yun could not be bothered with them. He picked up a piece of meat
and carried on eating.
“Kid, I’ll let you be arrogant for a little while longer. Tomorrow,
you’ll be crying! Let’s go!” After a henchman said those tough
words, he turned and left.
Seeing Yi Yun ignore them and carry on eating his desolate beast meat as
before, Zhao Qingcheng and company were rendered speechless.
In less than two hours, the news that Yi Yun was betting the ‘Tai Ah
Sacred Technique’ for the ‘Truth of the Laws’ with Li Hong had
spread throughout the Tai Ah Divine City.
Even the veteran cultivators, who had spent four years in the Tai Ah
Divine City, paid close attention to this matter.

The main reason was because the stakes involved the ‘Tai Ah Sacred
“He even dares to bet the ‘Tai Ah Sacred Technique’!?” Many
veteran cultivators turned green with envy when they heard this.
They had been been in the Tai Ah Divine City for a few years, yet they
had never had the chance to even touch the jade scrolls of the ‘Tai Ah
Sacred Technique’, let alone learn it.
“This Yi Yun is mad enough. He has not even had the ‘Tai Ah Sacred
Technique’ for two months, and already he does not want it anymore? He
sure is a loser!”
“That might not be it. Maybe Yi Yun has already attempted to learn the
‘Tai Ah Sacred Technique’ after he exchanged for it, but he was
unable to master it. Since it is useless in his hands, he might as well
use it as a bet.”
Some people analyzed it this way. Yi Yun gave a strange overall
impression. His saber was overpowering, but his insight into the laws was
weak. His talent was also said to only be average.
It would not be easy for Yi Yun to learn the ‘Tai Ah Sacred
Technique’ under such circumstances.
For example, Qiuniu was considered to be similar to Yi Yun. Yi Yun’s
saber technique was powerful, while Qiuniu’s strength was powerful.
Qiuniu’s strength left many rookies in the dust, but not many people
believed that Qiuniu would be able to master the ‘Tai Ah Sacred
Learning something did not depend on a person’s fighting prowess, it
depended on one’s perceptivity and talent!

As for people like Chu Xiaoran, many of them believed that she was the
one most likely to master the ‘Tai Ah Sacred Technique’.
“He got it from the glory points he earned from picking herbs, so maybe
he doesn’t know how to appreciate it? In the future, he will find out
how hard is it to earn glory points!” Some people said angrily. They
all wished the glory points that were used to exchange for the ‘Tai Ah
Sacred Technique’ were theirs.
Naturally, Yi Yun was not bothered by the reactions the veteran
He already went looking for Cang Yan, because he was planning on entering
the saber tomb. He wanted to spend the night honing his saber technique.
Li Hong was a strong opponent and Yi Yun did not know Li Hong’s full
strength. Although he was confident about tomorrow’s battle, he could
not guarantee his victory. He had to go all out.
Yi Yun would not waste the time he had at night.
This was a big bet. If he won it, he would obtain the ‘Truth of the
Laws’. This was something Yi Yun was in absolute desperate need of to
help him understand the laws!
When Cang Yan opened the door to the saber tomb for Yi Yun, Yi Yun
suddenly had a thought and looked thoughtfully at the other chamber.
That was the… sword tomb!

If he entered the sword tomb, what would happen?
Yi Yun knew he was not a natural saber user. When he chose the saber in
the Jin Long Wei Divine Capital armory, he did not have the feeling of
that legendary physical affinity.
The reason why he could gain insight on the Saber Truth’s 32 Words had
nothing to do with his accomplishments in the way of the saber, it was
completely due to his energy vision. He could see the energy flows inside
the Saber Truth’s 32 Words at a glance.
These energy flows were in fact equivalent to the laws of the saber
If he entered the sword tomb, would he gain an additional bonus?
The laws in the saber and sword tombs were incomprehensible profound
truths for many sages. Even with the profound truths laid out there, very
few of those who entered the tombs gained anything from them, because
they could not comprehend anything!
Since he had the facilities to do so, why would he not try to gain
further insights to broaden his horizons?
“Kid, what are you standing around for? Why aren’t you entering?”
Cang Yan’s voice suddenly interrupted Yi Yun’s thoughts.
Noticing Yi Yun’s gaze, Cang Yan knit his eyebrows, “Kid, you cannot
be interested in the sword tomb…”
Yi Yun hesitated because he did not know what to say.
He knew that the truths in the sword and saber tombs were something sages
of various generations had trouble understanding a tinge of it, let alone
learning both at the same time.
Cang Yan gave Yi Yun an odd glance, “Rotten rascal, I’m warning you.
Don’t go crazy on me! It was rare for me to see you have such talent on
the way of the saber, don’t waste it!”
“By being able to gain insight into the Saber Truth’s 32 Words’
saber truth, it proves you have an extraordinary keen sense in the saber
truths. But the more keen you are on the saber truths, the lesser your
senses will be for the sword truths.” Cang Yan exhorted Yi Yun. If an
average person had talent in one type of weapon and they managed to go
far using it, it would be impressive. Cang Yan had never heard of a
person reaching the far extremes in the use of two different weapons!
“Can’t the way of the saber and sword be taken to the extreme
together? Then the sword and saber tomb…”
Yi Yun suddenly realized that there was a possibility the sword and saber
tombs were the works of a single person.
If that was true, to what extent did that person reach in his martial
Of course, Yi Yun did not say his thoughts, or Cang Yan might have an
outburst. He obediently entered the saber tomb, but the thought of
entering the sword tomb when he had the chance rooted itself deeply in Yi

At the same time as Yi Yun entered the saber tomb, Li Hong was meditating
in an expensive cultivation room.
Swirls of Yuan Qi condensed into a visible flow before they entered Li
With the inflow of Yuan Qi, Li Hong’s muscles began to swell up like
Li Hong clenched his fists. He wanted to use the cultivation from that
night to push his condition to its highest point. At the same time, he

Li Hong had several speculations about Yi Yun’s hidden strength.
There was no way Yi Yun could hide his cultivation level. He was
definitely at the peak of the middle-stages of Purple Blood. A person who
had their Heaven’s Eye opened had looked into it for him.
It was also impossible for Yi Yun to have an Aspect Totem as he never
went into the wilderness to hunt desolate beasts.
Yi Yun might have hidden his cultivation techniques or laws, but with the
insight of a Purple Blood realm warrior, it was definitely not going to
be a heaven defying thing.
Li Hong had even envisioned that even if Chu Xiaoran’s understanding of
the laws had been implanted in Yi Yun’s body, Yi Yun was still not his

Taking a step back, he considered the possibility of Yi Yun having
secretly learned a powerful cultivation technique. But even if Yi Yun
were to learn something like the ‘Star Picking Hand’ or secret
techniques that belonged to a duke-class family, Li Hong still believed
that he could beat Yi Yun!
Furthermore, with Yi Yun’s background, where could he obtain a
cultivation technique that was at the duke-class level?
No matter how much he calculated or envisioned it, this battle was a
Li Hong’s eyes flashed as he clenched his fingernails deep into his
flesh. He had an extreme desire to win the battle tomorrow.
An uneventful night passed. Both Yi Yun and Li Hong worked hard. The
upcoming battle was too important to them.
Next morning, when the sun rose, the cultivators in the Tai Ah Divine
City woke up and began to arrive in the arena in streams.
The number of spectators who came today was even higher than the day Yi
Yun fought Chu Xiaoran.
People were looking forward to know the results of Yi Yun and Li Hong’s
