True Martial World - chapter-384
Yi Yun’s comment was very sudden. Instantly, everyone in the yard
looked towards Yi Yun.
At this moment, Yi Yun was standing behind Su Jie’s seat. He completely
looked like a young medicine boy. From the moment Yi Yun appeared, no one
had noticed him, other than Lin Xintong’s grandaunt from before. She
had only spoken to him because Yi Yun knew Lin Xintong.
If Lin Xintong had not greeted Yi Yun, she would have treated him like
“What are you? Do you know your manners!? Do you even have the right to
This was a matter of the Lin family. Even Su Jie did not have much right
to speak as he was an outsider. From the beginning to now, Su Jie had
been mostly been listening.
And with Su Jie’s status, if he really wanted to make a comment, the
Lin family would listen. However, how could a follower of Su Jie, who
looked like a sidekick youth, have the right to interject while the upper
echelons of the Lin family were talking?
Not even the Lin family, even in a big mortal household, if a servant
were to suddenly interrupt his master while he was speaking, he would
only end up being smacked in the mouth!
Due to Su Jie, the grandaunt could not do anything to Yi Yun. After all,
she had been lowering her status to persuade Lin Xintong today, and she
was feeling a burning rage. If Yi Yun was a member of the Lin family, she
would have dragged him away to be punished according to the family rules.
Before Su Jie spoke, Yi Yun directly said, “I’m Yun Yantian, Elder
Su’s in-name disciple.”
Yi Yun casually gave himself a name. He used his original name, Yun as
his surname. ‘Yan’ was a homophone, and actually meant concealment.
Yun Yantian then meant clouds (Yun) concealing (Yan) the sky (Tian). It
also secretly expressed Yi Yun’s martial arts goal.
At the same time, Shen Tu Nantian’s name also had a ‘Tian’, so
clouds (Yun) concealing (Yan) the sky (Tian) also meant Yi Yun was
concealing Shen Tu Nantian. This was an evil pun Yi Yun used when giving
himself the name.
“In-name disciple?” When the woman in palatial gown heard this, her
face turned gloomy. An in-name disciple’s status was low, yet he dared
to speak to her here?
She was nearly about to go into a rage when Lin Xintong stood up and
said, “Grandaunt, he is my friend.”
The woman wanted to say something but it got stuck in her throat
This word made her feel uncomfortable. What kind of status did the Lin
family have? Lin Xintong was also the greatest figure of the Lin
family’s younger generation. She could become a peerless Great Empress
in the future, yet she made friends with such a person?
If it was her granddaughter, she would have reprimanded her. However,
against Lin Xintong, she did not dare do so. She could only tone down her
expression and said patiently, “Xintong, it is your prerogative to make
friends, but you must see what sort of person someone is. You have a
dignified background and you will have limitless achievements in the
future. If you want to make friends, they have to be people like Shen Tu
Nantian, who come from a large family clan. They are youths who will
amount to great things in the future. As for some cats and dogs, or
riff-raff, it is best you don’t mix around with them, or you would lose
your dignity and be ridiculed by others. What do you say, Xintong?”
The woman tried to make her speech sound kind, but even so, her words
were filled with superiority. They included referring Yi Yun to cats and
dogs or riff-raff, and this angered Lin Xintong.
Lin Xintong’s eyebrows frowned as she spoke coldly, “Grandaunt, he is
my friend. As for you, you can only be considered my elder. You have
lived a long time, and have seen numerous people and encountered numerous
matters. You should understand the meaning of how a mere acquaintance
should not sow discord between two close people.”
The words Lin Xintong did not include any swear words, but it immediately
turned the woman’s face white!

A mere acquaintance should not sow discord between two close people!
The woman in the palatial gown was Lin Xintong’s grandaunt, but as for
Yi Yun, what sort of person was he to Lin Xintong?
He was just a friend, and a friend of an unknown closeness at that.
However, Lin Xintong had actually said “Mere acquaintance should not
sow discord between two close people!”
This meant that in Lin Xintong’s heart, she as the grandaunt was the
mere acquaintance. She was dispensable. As for this riff-raff, Yi Yun, he
held a greater spot in Lin Xintong’s heart than the grandaunt, her!
Previously, Lin Xintong also said that the woman “can only be”
considered Lin Xintong’s elder.
This also meant that other than the relation of being of the same clan
and the elder-junior relationship that could not be wiped off, she as a
grandaunt was nothing in Lin Xintong’s heart.
With her status as someone who was more distant, she was being
presumptuous and being offensive by criticizing the kid who was closer to
“You… ” The woman’s voice trembled slightly. To have those sharp
words aimed at her in front of so many people, including the Matriarch
and the juniors the Matriarch brought, she had lost all face!

However, she could not refute a word. When Lin Xintong was young and
suffered all sorts of abuse from her family, she as a grandaunt had never
played a positive role. On the contrary, she had taken on a conniving
It was only two years ago when Lin Xintong could become a peerless Great
Empress and become a transcendent figure of the Shen Tu family clan and
Lin family in the far future, did she try to deepen the ties with Lin
Xintong. However, what was the point?
To Lin Xintong, being courteous to her grandaunt was purely out of the
respect for one’s elders. If it involved her friends or her master,
things would completely be different.
“Xintong, how can you be so brazen with your words!?” The Matriarch
rebuked, helping the woman in palatial attire to ease the situation.
The grandaunt had lost face as she glanced angrily at Yi Yun,
“Matriarch, this kid is young and of lowly status. He doesn’t know
anything, yet, here he is jumping onto a Shen Tu family clan and Lin
family matter that only Great Emperors can decide. He really doesn’t
know his place!”
The Shen Tu family clan and Lin family’s great matter was decided by
the upper echelons, so for a junior to join in the discussion, it
naturally gave others the feeling that he did not know the rules and that
he was immature and ridiculous.
Yi Yun said calmly, “I was only listing a possibility. The Shen Tu
family clan may not be able to cure Miss Lin.”
“What a joke. When a large family clan does things, do you think it’s
children playing House? If they do not even have the slightest
confidence, wouldn’t they end up being the laughing stock of the

success. Do you think that the Elders of our Lin family cannot come up
with thoughts that you thought of? That their insights are inferior to

“Do you know the Desolate Heaven technique? Do you know the ancient
recipe? You are just Su Jie’s in-name disciple!”
“Indeed, lads are ignorant, and their words are hilarious!”
The woman retorted in a sarcastic tone like a cannon. Yi Yun took that in
silently, making it seem like he had been dumbfounded by the woman’s
This finally allowed her to feel a sense of relief. However, Yi Yun’s
status was after all lowly. To partake in such an exchange still made her
feel like she had lowered her status and it was not worth it.
To her, this feeling was like being bitten by a bug. So what if she had
trampled the bug? She had still been bitten by the bug.
“Matriarch.” The woman was afraid the Matriarch would hesitate on
this matter, so she turned to the Matriarch and said, “The Shen Tu
family clan’s Desolate Heaven technique has extraordinary heritage that
has no reason to be doubted. It is indeed a level higher than our Lin
family. If the Lin family allies with the Shen Tu family clan, then when
Lin Xintong takes on a commanding role, our Lin family’s Desolate
Heaven technique heritage would also probably upgrade a level.”
“The Desolate Heaven technique tea session organized by the Shen Tu
family clan will be in two months time. At that time, the Shen Tu family
clan should be able to prove their ability to cure Xintong’s terminated
As the woman in palatial attire said, she glanced at Su Jie with a
mocking look. “Elder Su, you must have already prepared for the
Desolate Heaven technique tea session, right?”
The woman knew that Su Jie would definitely suffer a defeat at the tea
session. Although his Desolate Heaven technique standard was extremely
high, he would not be able to resist against the gurus of the Shen Tu
family clan. No matter how strong Su Jie was, he would probably lose.
This content is taken from
The woman was not on good terms with Su Jie, so seeing Su Jie suffer
naturally made her delighted. Also, if the Shen Tu family clan proved
their strength, then it would support her position. As no matter how she
saw it, this marriage would only benefit the Lin family.
“You do not need to worry about my preparations. Why? You seem to look
forward to the Lin family being trampled on?”
Since he did not have a good impression of her and had been targeted by
her mean words, Su Jie naturally would not take it sitting down. He
immediately attacked back verbally.
“Elder Su, you don’t need to imply that I’m helping others
secretly. Of course I wish the Lin family to be in the limelight, but I
would not blindly dream. Does it mean you will win just because I wish
you will win?”
Seeing the woman about to quarrel with Su Jie, the Matriarch’s face
sank and reprimanded the woman, “Quiet! Have some decency!”
Su Jie was the Lin family’s in-house guest, so he naturally had to be
treated respectfully or he could easily just leave. The Matriarch would
naturally reprimand the woman in palatial attire if she argued with Su
The woman stayed silent. She had said those words on a whim.
The Matriarch leaned on her dragon-head cane and stood up, “Elder Su,
the original intention of the tea session is for the Shen Tu family clan
to showcase their Desolate Heaven technique standard. However, they have
prepared well in advance, and we did not have much time to prepare as
well as our comparatively lower heritage, we might be suppressed.”
“Having said so, our Lin family should not lose too badly. I hope I can
rely on Elder Su for this matter! You must uphold the Lin family’s

The Matriarch’s voice was sincere as Su Jie nodded, “I will do my
best. May the Matriarch be at ease!”
“Alright.” The Matriarch nodded and turned towards Lin Xintong,
“Xintong, I will not force you. You should walk down your own path. You
still have a long life ahead.”
“I have lived so long and have seen too many people and things. Having
experienced so much, I only want to tell you that you are still young.
Whatever you are thinking of now, and what you are insisting on now might
be childish and ridiculous when you really grow up a few thousand years
in the future.”
“What you hold deeply might not be what you want… You might rather
die now, but eventually, you might accept it despite the humiliation.
Maybe one day, you might even celebrate that you had given in… ”
After the Matriarch finished speaking, she used her cane and under the
companionship of the group of girls, left.
