True Martial World - chapter-418
As Yi Yun was single-mindedly absorbing the energy from the Great
Empress’s relic’s explosion, Shen Tu Nantian was approaching the
gates of Hell.
In this world, few people were not afraid of death, and Shen Tu Nantian
was apparently not one of them.
Beads of sweat began oozing out of Shen Tu Nantian’s forehead. They
were forced out by Matriarch Lin’s killing intent.
“I can tell you all the secrets of the Great Empress mystic realm,
including the experience gained from sacrificing so many Shen Tu family
clan experts. But, I plead that you let the people from my Shen Tu family
Shen Tu Nantian intended to sign another soul contract with Matriarch Lin.
“Let you go?” Matriarch Lin sneered, “You schemed to harm Xintong
with evil intentions, and now, you want old me to let you off? If old me
did not guess wrongly, if Xintong had swallowed that Great Empress relic,
the evil energy would greatly shorten her lifespan! By the time my Lin
family knew the truth, your family would have gained all sorts of
benefits, and it would have been too late!”
“And all these benefits would all be yours, Shen Tu Nantian, alone. How
can I let you go!?”
“You are using the Great Empress mystic realm as a chip, so how would I
know if the ‘Great Empress mystic realm’ was really left the behind
by the ancient Great Empress? Maybe, it was just a mystic realm left
behind by an ancient Desolate Heaven Master. There would be no way of
finding a method to join Xintong’s terminated meridians up!”
Matriarch Lin expounded pressure. After all, she was a grandmaster in the
Desolate Heaven technique. Although she had been tricked by the Great
Empress relic, she could roughly guess the Great Empress relic’s trap.

An elixir like the Great Empress relic made of extremely pure Yang energy
was definitely useful for Lin Xintong’s natural Yin Meridians. however,
the dangerous potential was not easily detected.
However, as the Red-eyed Wolf was too weak, and with it swallowing the
evil energy and not the beneficial portion of the relic, as such it was
suppressed by the evil energy, leading it to rapidly age.
Shen Tu Nantian knew that Matriarch Lin would definitely not let him off
today. He was distraught, for in this situation, the news about the Great
Empress mystic realm was the only card he had that was keeping him alive.
“Matriarch Lin! This junior can swear on my life that the Great Empress
mystic realm is truly extraordinary. It is definitely closely related to
the Great Empress. This point can be written in the soul contract. It is
just that my Shen Tu family clan does not have the ability to fully open
and explore the Great Empress mystic realm! Amongst all of the Shen Tu
family members present, only Thousand Hand Granny and I know everything
about the Great Empress mystic realm!”
Shen Tu Nantian began to speak factually. What he said immediately
shocked everyone present.
The Great Empress mystic realm had not been fully explored by the Shen Tu
Even the Shen Tu family clan did not have the ability to fully open the
Great Empress mystic realm, so what was inside the areas that were not
There was no doubt that the more inaccessible the place was, the more
extraordinary it was. The parts explored had produced the ancient
Desolate Heaven Master heritage that made many people envious. There was
also the extraordinary Great Empress ancient recipe that had been proven
to be defective.
The places that had not been opened in the mystic realm definitely had

People were tempted. Other than the upper echelons of the Lin family,
even the upper echelons of the family clans that had allied with the Shen
Tu family clan were envious.
The Shen Tu family clan may not be able to enter those areas, but they
might be able to do so?
Although it was unlikely, it was not entirely impossible!
That ancient Great Empress was not someone that someone like the Shen Tu
Patriarch could compare with. There was even the possibility that she had
long surpassed the usual definitions of the Great Emperor realm, and she
had reached a higher realm that they did not understand nor have a name
Matriarch Lin narrowed her eyes. If there was an area in the mystic realm
that had not been opened up, that would be an opportunity for the Lin
family. Furthermore, what Matriarch Lin was most concerned with was
finding a method to join up Lin Xintong’s terminated meridians within
The situation had progressed into a dilemma.
Matriarch Lin may be having a powerful stance now, but she too did not
know how to handle it.
On one hand, she did not wish to let Shen Tu Nantian off; and on the
other hand, she wanted to obtain the the Great Empress mystic realm.
“Since we have made enemies with the Shen Tu family clan, it will only
lead to endless adverse consequences if Shen Tu Nantian was let off…”
Matriarch Lin knew that despite Shen Tu Nantian’s poor character, he
was extremely talented. Even now, Shen Tu Nantian’s talent far exceeded
anyone in the Lin family’s younger generation.
As for Lin Xintong, she may possess great talent, but she had the
critical problem of her naturally Yin terminated meridians.
Matriarch Lin sighed and suddenly, she turned her head towards Yi Yun,
“Little friend Yun, how do you think this matter should be dealt
Matriarch Lin’s sudden words made everyone present surprised. Even Yi
Yun, who was focused on absorbing the pure Yang energy, was stunned.
It was shocking to consult a junior on such a huge matter.
There was no doubt that with Yi Yun’s performance over the past few
days, and having revealed the Shen Tu family clan’s evil scheme,
Matriarch Lin no longer looked at Yi Yun in an ordinary manner. She had
completely distinguished Yi Yun from the other juniors, and she had
treated him as one of the members that could discuss in their family
“This…” Yi Yun smiled bitterly. He scratched his head and shirked,
“This is a matter that the upper echelons of the Lin family needs to
decide. It might not be suitable for me to give my opinion…”
Matriarch Lin shook her head, “This is not only a matter for the Lin
family, it is also a matter for you. This matter is closely related to
you. There is no way of reconciling your relationship with the Shen Tu
family clan, especially Shen Tu Nantian. If I were to let him off today,
aren’t you afraid he will seek revenge in the future?”
Matriarch Lin had asked because she wanted to respect Yi Yun’s wishes.
By letting Shen Tu Nantian off, the harm to the Lin family could be far
off into the future, but the harm to Yi Yun would be immediate. Once Yi
Yun lost the protection of the Lin family, he would suffer the vengeful
attacks of the Shen Tu family clan.

“About this…” Yi Yun stroked his chin. He was already far from
reconciliation with Shen Tu Nantian a long time ago. Just as the saying
goes, one isn’t afraid of being bitten by lice once there were too
many, so one matter more or less did not really mean much. “Actually,
since Matriarch Lin has asked me, you already have the answer in your
heart. This junior feels that healing Miss Lin of her naturally
terminated Yin meridians is more important.”
Yi Yun knew that Matriarch Lin was not willing to miss the opportunity to
heal Lin Xintong, despite the threat of Shen Tu Nantian’s future
revenge if he was let off. Matriarch Lin was just taking into account Yi
Seeing Yi Yun so considerate for Lin Xintong, Matriarch Lin was touched,
“Little friend Yun, as long as old me still has a breath left in me,
and as long as Xintong still holds a spot in the Lin family, the Lin
family will definitely not let you down!”
Once Matriarch Lin finished speaking, Yi Yun said, “Matriarch Lin, this
junior did not say that Young master Nantian should be let off!”
“Oh?” Matriarch Lin’s eyebrows raised as she was slightly surprised.
“It’s this. The soul contract’s curse will take a few days,
Yi Yun knew that the ghost head in the soul contract was actually a
curse. Once the contract was signed, and until the contract was
nullified, the ghost head would slowly eat into the signee’s soul, till
they died a painful death.
Only by fulfilling the contract would the ghost head disappear. This
process varied depending on the person. Those with high cultivation
levels could last for 70-80 days, while those with low cultivation levels
could only last slightly more than ten days.
Matriarch Lin gently nodded.

“Right… Young master Nantian’s strength is good, and he can
definitely endure it for a long time.” Yi Yun smiled gently as he
praised Shen Tu Nantian. However, this “praise” made Shen Tu
Nantian’s heart freeze.
As he looked at Yi Yun’s cold mask and the two red blood lines where
the eyes should be, a sense of foreboding was felt by Shen Tu Nantian.
What was this kid going to do?
“It’s this. This junior has heard that the Shen Tu family clan has a
form of torture, called the “Dismembering the Heart” punishment. In a
period of 36 days, a red-hot blade would be slashed on the criminal
36,000 times. After each day’s slashing, a heart dismembering worm’s
egg would be placed in the wounds. The eggs would then slowly hatch and
eat at the flesh and blood. Finally, when the 36,000 slashes were
completed, the heart dismembering worms would follow the blood vessels
and meridians all the way to the heart. There, tens of thousands of worms
would bite at the heart, eventually leading to one’s death…
The Dismembering the Heart punishment was what Shen Tu Nantian had told
Yi Yun a few months ago.
Back then, Shen Tu Nantian wanted to use “Dismembering the Heart” as
a way to deal with Yi Yun, to force the Shepherd Boy to save him.
However, now, it had switched to Yi Yun talking about the “Dismembering
Shen Tu Nantian’s face immediately turned as white as paper!
As a member of the Shen Tu family clan, he had witnessed with his own
eyes how the “Dismembering the Heart” punishment was carried out by
the Shen Tu family clan. The slashes were nothing much, but once the
heart dismembering worm’s eggs were placed in one’s body, the feeling
of the larvae crawling inside one’s body was a pain that was worse than
Back then as a spectator, Shen Tu Nantian felt some pleasure seeing
people suffer this punishment. However, if it was him suffering it, he
could not imagine it!

“Torture?” Matriarch Lin asked. She was surprised that Yi Yun was so
vicious in his methods, even though he was so young!
“To get truths out of torture, that would be the best.”
“If it is useless, we can release news that the sentencing will happen
in ten days later to allow the Shen Tu family clan to come and redeem
him. Of course, the price of redeeming him is the information of the
Great Empress mystic realm. The Shen Tu family clan would probably not
give up on Shen Tu Nantian, right? …After all, the Great Empress mystic
realm cannot be opened by the Shen Tu family clan. So things they cannot
obtained can’t be more important than the future successor of the Shen
Tu family clan.”
Shen Tu Nantian was extremely important for the Shen Tu family clan. His
importance far exceeded the importance of Lin Xintong in the Lin family.
Matriarch Lin would not give up on Lin Xintong.
Then, the Shen Tu family clan’s Shen Tu Patriarch would also not give
up on Shen Tu Nantian. He was the most favorite and beloved junior.
“This…” Matriarch Lin felt suspicious, “Then, wouldn’t Shen Tu
Nantian be let off, what’s the difference?”
“The difference is, we can use these ten days to ‘take care’ of
Young master Nantian well. After all, Young master Nantian’s injuries
are quite severe. If we can ‘treat’ his wounds such as feeding him
some poisonous items that might affect his future cultivation, then…”
When Yi Yun said this, Matriarch Lin’s eyes twitched. This little
rascal sure wasn’t any goody two shoes.

Seeing Matriarch Lin look at him with disbelieving eyes, Yi Yun scratched
his head sheepishly, “This junior is just letting him have a taste of
his own medicine.”
Yi Yun had said that with his Yuan Qi.
