True Martial World - chapter-259
Since Yi Yun had decided to move into the central divine tower, Yi Yun
went back to his free lodging to gather his things. All his belongings
were thrown into his interspatial ring.
After packing his things, Yi Yun went to the cook house next to the free
lodgings for dinner. But some uninvited guests came while he was eating.
A youth, who was fanning himself with a fan, walked over with a smile and
sat opposite Yi Yun.
The person closed his fan with a snap. Yi Yun looked up and glanced at
him. Behind him were two attendants who were the ones who had invited him
to the Divine Moon Restaurant earlier.
Other than that, there was someone familiar, Yang Dingkun!
Yang Dingkun was following behind the youth with a fan. Without question,
this fanning youth had a higher position than Yang Dingkun in the Chu
“This must be little brother Yi. I had reserved a special table with a
feast worth 1200 dragon scale runes at the Divine Moon Restaurant, but
little brother Yi did not do me the favor to show up and rather chose to
eat in the cook house. I waited there for nothing for two hours.”
The youth with a fan said with a smile. Although his tone was polite,
there was a hidden sharpness within it.
Even Tai Ah Divine City cultivators ranked in the top 100 of the Heaven
and Earth roll would feel the pinch after eating 1200 dragon scale runes
worth of food.
Yi Yun slowly wiped his mouth. He was speechless. Every time he had a
meal, someone would come pick on him. Did these fools collude beforehand
to do so?

“Let me introduce myself. I’m Yang Yuefeng and from the Chu royal
residence. I’ve been in the Tai Ah Divine City for four years, but have
a shameful ranking of 100 or so on the Heaven and Earth rolls.”
The fanning youth said slowly with a lot of charisma.
It was a very impressive deed to commoners if someone could reach the
Heaven and Earth ranking of 100 within four years in the Tai Ah Divine
But for a young leader of the Chu royal residence, it was not impressive.
Even Yang Dingkun, who was obviously lower in status than Yang Yuefeng,
was ranked in the top 100. Furthermore, Yang Dingkun was even younger
than Yang Yuefeng.
But Yi Yun was aware that even though Yang Yuefeng’s self-introduction
might sound weak, it was a demonstration of his prowess. By pointing out
his shortcomings, he was actually highlighting his strengths, or his
status would not be above Yang Dingkun’s.
Yi Yun remembered Yang Yuefeng’s name since he had memorized the
Heaven, Earth, Man rolls of honor.
Yang Yuefeng was ranked tenth on the Man roll!
By being ranked on the worse side of 100 on the Heaven and Earth roll,
but ranked tenth on the Man roll clearly indicated that Yang Yuefeng had
some special skills.

“I see that it’s young master Yang. Is young master Yang a Desolate
Heaven Master? Or an alchemist?”
“Ha! I’m lacking in talent but have some mild research in the
Desolate Heaven technique.”
Although Yang Yuefeng said it humbly, he was clearly very proud of his
Desolate Heaven technique!
By being ranked tenth on the Man roll, it symbolized that his Desolate
Heaven technique was near perfection!
It was due to his Desolate Heaven technique that Yang Yuefeng had
achieved such a position among the younger generation within the Chu
In fact, in many cases, large families would appreciate Desolate Heaven
Masters more than pure combat warriors.
Outside of the Tai Ah Divine City, in the Tai Ah Divine Kingdom, the
currency most often used was desolate bone relics. Some special desolate
bone relics could help a warrior make a breakthrough, condense an Aspect
Totem or allow their Aspect Totem to evolve. There were many uses for
desolate bone relics.
“So it’s Yang Heaven Master.” Yi Yun said lightly.
“Haha, I don’t dare to be given the title Heaven Master. In the
future, when little brother Yi condenses an Aspect Totem, maybe I will be
able to assist you in some way.” Yang Yuefeng subtly expressed the
level of his Desolate Heaven technique. Only high-grade Desolate Heaven
Masters could refine desolate bone relics that could help condense Aspect

“Little brother Yi’s time is precious, so I’ll go straight to the
point.” Yang Yuefeng said before passing a jade scroll to Yi Yun.
“Little brother Yi, you can take a look…”
Yi Yun swept it with a glance. It was the terms the Chu royal residence
used to pull him in again with a binding contract. The remuneration was
none other than elixirs, fiefs, relics, beautiful s*x cultivation slaves,
etc. However, compared to the previous contract, the terms were multiple
times better. Some of the beauties prepared for him were even from the
Chu family’s direct bloodline.
By giving the Chu royal residence’s descendants to elites, which the
Chu royal residence wanted to pull in, as concubines, not only did it
satisfy the vanity and dominating personalities of elites, it could also
make these elites have a closer relationship with the Chu royal
residence. It killed two birds with one stone.
This gave Yi Yun mixed emotions. Girls born from large family clans had a
tragic fate if they did not have enough talent.
The Chu royal residence had too many children. For the family clan’s
interests, they did not mind sacrificing their children who were of
little value. In a large family clan, they had no freedom regarding their
Seeing all these conditions that lacked anything new, Yi Yun lost
interest. He noticed that besides those conditions, even the ‘Truth of
the Laws’, which Yang Dingkun had lost to him, had been written into it
as one of the conditions.
Even a lost bet could be used as a condition? Yi Yun frowned slightly.
He returned the jade scroll, “Sorry, I’m not interested.”
“This… It’s regretful…” Yang Dingkun shook his head. “Then
would little brother Yi please return the ‘Truth of the Laws’ jade
scroll to me. According to the Chu royal residence’s rules, the
‘Truth of the Laws’ can only be cultivated by a person from the Chu
royal residence. If little brother Yi was willing to accept the
conditions on the jade scroll and join the Chu royal residence, then the
‘Truth of the Laws’ can be freely cultivated by little brother Yi.
But if you do not agree to that, then please return the jade scroll.
According to the Chu royal residence’s rules, Dingkun had no right to
use the ‘Truth of the Laws’ as a bet. Hence, the bet does not count.
For this, the Chu royal residence has severely punished Dingkun, lowering
his position in the family clan by three grades! I have been ordered to
remedy the situation.”

“Actually, if little brother Yi were to sign the contract and join the
Chu royal residence, it will be a joyous occasion. But since little
brother Yi doesn’t wish so, this also makes things difficult for
Yang Yuefeng slowly said, still with a “sincere” tone.
But when Yi Yun heard this, he was amused. What did his difficulties have
to do with him?
“Are you joking with me?”
Anything that was gambled is protected under the rules of the Tai Ah
Divine City, regardless of the Chu royal residence, Yang royal residence.
Even the Divine Emperor himself had no power against it.
The Tai Ah Divine City did not care about any Chu royal residence’s
rules. What you lost as a bet meant it was lost. Doesn’t count? Dream
“Little brother Yi Yun, don’t be in a hurry to reject me.” Hearing
Yi Yun’s sarcastic words, Yang Yuefeng was not annoyed and remained
calm. He said, “I know little bother Yi is in the Tai Ah Divine City
and is protected by the Divine City. But in the future, little brother Yi
will have to leave the Tai Ah Divine City, and it would be unwise to
offend the Chu royal residence which has deep connections… Dingkun was
in the wrong and he has already been punished by the family. Furthermore,
I can get Dingkun to apologize to you.
Yang Yuefeng said this and glanced at Yang Dingkun. Yang Dingkun was
clenching his fists tightly, staring at Yi Yun. His eyes were filled with
humiliation and frustration.
To apologize to someone was a great insult for a proud person like him.
Although it was something very costly to Yang Dingkun, it was worthless
to Yi Yun.

Yi Yun wiped his hands and said, “An apology to exchange for something
substantial? So Yang Dingkun originally did not have the right to bet the
‘Truth of the Laws’ with me? Then let me ask you, if I were to be the
loser in the battle with Li Hong, then would you return the ‘Tai Ah
Sacred Technique’ to me?” Yi Yun returned with a question. Yang
Dingkun’s eyes turned blood red, “Yi Yun, I’ve already apologized.
Don’t you push it!”
“Shut up!” Yang Yuefeng berated him. He did not wish for the matter
to worsen any further.
He had tried to lower his status as much as he could. He knew that his
request was unreasonable, but he was hoping the reputation of the Chu
royal residence would prove useful.
No matter where it was, an individual’s power was always subservient to
a greater power! Unreasonable things would become reasonable.
He believed that by giving Yi Yun a chance to resolve the situation, Yi
Yun would compromise since as the saying goes, “a wise man suits his
actions according to the situation”.
“20,000 dragon scale runes. We can give this as a form of
compensation.” Yang Yuefeng announced his terms. This was something he
had prepared beforehand. It was Yang Yuefeng’s bottom line to pay this
amount of dragon scale runes, as a way for Yi Yun to resolve the
“20,000 dragon scale runes?” Yi Yun sneered deep down. He had spent
10,000 dragon scale runes and 2 glory points to exchange for the ‘Tai
Ah Sacred Technique’. Glory points were priceless. It was not enough

Yang Yuefeng was planning to use 20,000 dragon scale runes to exchange
for something similarly priced to the ‘Tai Ah Sacred Technique’.
“That’s enough to pay a month’s rent.” Yi Yun sarcastically said.

Yang Yuefeng’s heart jumped when he heard this!
The two followers behind him widened their eyes. Even Yang Dingkun was
A rent of 20,000 dragon scale runes per month? Had he changed to a
residence above the 60th floor in the central divine tower?
The central divine tower was the Tai Ah Divine City’s biggest
super-array. It gathered the Heaven Earth Yuan Qi in a radius of a
million miles. It was the reason why it was the best place for
cultivating in the Tai Ah Divine City.
The cultivators in the Tai Ah Divine City all wished they could live in
the central divine tower. It was not only a symbol of glory, but it was
key to their own cultivation as it significantly helped.
Furthermore, the residences above the 60th floor were so rich in Heaven
Earth Yuan Qi that it made people envious!
They knew that Yi Yun was rich. But even typical rich people would not
dare to spend their hard earned dragon scales like this. Was he not
afraid to spend all his wealth, and not be able to earn large amounts of
dragon scale runes again?
“What…conditions do you want?” Yang Yuefeng’s face sank. Yi Yun
was clearly ridiculing his condition as worthless by mentioning the
rental of 20,000 dragon scale runes per month in the central divine tower.
“Two glory points as a form of equal exchange.”

Yi Yun was just about to learn the laws and needed to receive insight
from the ‘Truth of the Laws’. But no matter how much Yi Yun abhorred
the Chu royal residence, he still held the mentality of avoiding trouble
Two glory points were used to exchange for the ‘Tai Ah Sacred
Technique’, and the ‘Truth of the Laws’ was also worth an equal
Yi Yun could accommodate the Chu royal residence’s rules, but it did
not mean he was open to being bullied by the Chu royal residence.
An equal exchange was Yi Yun’s bottom line.
“Heh!” Hearing Yi Yun asking for two glory points, Yang Yuefeng’s
glance turned dark. “You really want to…refuse a toast only to drink
