True Martial World - chapter-694
“What exactly happened… ?”
The Sword Spirit looked at the fallen leaf in Yi Yun’s hand and murmured.
He was still in shock.
As for the white-dressed youth, he had taken brisk steps forward to stand
in front of Yi Yun.
“Let me take a look!”
Without any explanation, the youth stretched out his hand to grab Yi
Yun’s leaf. It wasn’t that he was trying to steal it from Yi Yun, it was
because this matter was too unbelievable. However, this action of his
made his palm feel an intense burning sensation, as if the leaf was a
ball of fire. When he grabbed the leaf, his palm was burnt.
The youth’s facial muscles twitched and he could only retract his hand.
He stared frustratingly at the leaf. The Dao Tree was spiritual, so the
Dao Leaf was spiritual too. He could not touch the Leaf apparently
because he had not gained the recognition of the Dao Leaf.
However, Yi Yun was a young man whose Sword Dao had only reached the
Small Success Stage of Sword Intent. To euphemistically put it, he was a
genius of a lower realm. To put it bluntly, he was a country bumpkin.
Yet, he had gained recognition of the Dao Leaf.
As for himself, he was an immortal residence’s guardian Item Spirit. And
the immortal residence he resided in was one of the top residences in the
entire universe. This Dao Tree was a divine tree that was the foundation
basis of this immortal residence.
Even being an immortal residence’s Item Spirit, he could not even pick up
the foundational divine tree’s leaf. But Yi Yun, a country bumpkin, had
caused the leaf to fall, automatically drifting into his palm.

How could this difference not make the youth feel a setback?
“You… How did you do it… ”
The youth seemed to not be able to accept the fact.
“Senior, I do not know either.” Yi Yun said very innocently.
Yi Yun naturally knew what had happened. Actually when the Dao Leaf fell,
even Yi Yun was slightly surprised himself. He never expected that the
enlightenment of a falling leaf’s life that he obtained in the spiritual
world would be reflected in reality when he opened his eyes. The Dao
Tree’s leaf had really fallen.
However, Yi Yun knew that the fact that the Dao Tree would wilt a leaf
was most likely not because of him, but because of the Purple Crystal.
As the Purple Crystal, a worldly divine item that could control energy,
was in his body, the Dao Tree’s falling of a leaf was for the Purple
The Purple Crystal was originally equivalent to a Heavenly Dao, or it
could even represent the highest Heavenly Dao laws. As for the Dao Tree,
it was an amalgamation of Heavenly Dao, so the fallen leaf was not
pursuing him, but Heavenly Dao.
This Dao Tree was unitary, but every leaf had their own lives. The leaves
themselves would make their own choice when seeking Dao.

For a leaf to shed, and a bud to sprout, the Dao Tree did not have a
reduction in leaves. The fallen leaf was like a child growing up, and
leaving their parents, walking to the outside world.
With a thought from Yi Yun, the Dao Leaf suddenly merged into his body.
He could clearly see that the Dao Leaf was like a piece of ice crystal
that had fallen into water. It slowly melted, initially only having the
middle veins left, and following that, the veins disappeared as well…
The leaf had merged into his bloodstream, and traveling through his
bloodstream, entered his heart. That was where the Purple Crystal was
The Purple Crystal did not block the Dao Leaf. As such, the Leaf
successfully entered the Purple Crystal, reforming once again in the
The emerald and crystal-like Dao Leaf was like the most beautiful jade
carving, silently floating in the Purple Crystal’s space.
With a gently breeze blowing across, the Dao Tree’s branches swayed
gently, rustling in the wind. It was as if it was responding to Yi Yun,
and also bidding farewell to the departing Dao Leaf.
Yi Yun looked up at the Dao Tree above him. The sparse, green leafs were
like crystals. There were 3000 Dao Leafs, each equivalent to the 3000
Great Dao. Although the Dao Leaves were small, they contained the truths
behind the Heaven and Earth.
“It merged with him… ”
Upon seeing the Dao Leaf merge into Yi Yun’s body, the white-dressed
youth’s mouth twitched slightly. Naturally, he could not trace where the
Dao Leaf went to after it merged into Yi Yun’s body.

He could easily see through Yi Yun’s body’s energy flow, but he could not
see the Dao Leaf or the Purple Crystal. These two existences far exceeded
the confines of his perception.
“What… What’s your name?”
The youth asked Yi Yun’s name. In the past, as he was arrogant, he did
not even ask for Yi Yun’s name.
But now, his arrogance was completely wiped out by this leaf.
Although he was powerful, he was after all an Item Spirit. He could not
seek Dao enlightenment. Although the Dao Tree had grown in the Pure Yang
Sword Palace, it did not belong to the Pure Yang Sword Palace. The youth
also had no control over the Dao Tree.
In fact, all these years, the youth had always worshiped the Dao Tree as
if it was a God. If it wished, the Dao Tree could leave anytime. In the
future, even if the Pure Yang Sword Palace was destroyed, the Dao Tree
would remain immortal, still existing in this world.
“Answering the Senior’s question. This junior is Yi Yun.” Yi Yun bowed
and said with a deferential attitude.
However, Yi Yun’s deference made the youth turn embarrassed. In a world
of warriors, success gave one a seat of honor. For Yi Yun to obtain the
Dao Tree’s recognition and at such a young age, he was bound to have a
As for him, he was just a Item Spirit. He might at best live another ten
million years. Ignoring the fact that his strength would not increase,
and it might even decrease, this comparison with Yi Yun made it obvious
who had the upper hand.

The youth knew his limitations. So under this situation, he could no
matter put on airs in front of Yi Yun no matter how arrogant he was.
He said, “You do not need to bow to me. Since I have recognized you as
the Master’s successor, once you have sufficient strength, you will have
full control of the sword palace. Then, you would be the next owner of
the sword palace, and also my Master.”
“When that happens, it will be me bowing to you.”
The youth looked at Yi Yun with a look that had changed from
embarrassment to anticipation.
He anticipated Yi Yun’s growth, to become a person of glory, dominating
the world. When that happened, he could rest easily, changing into
Origins energy and dissipate.
“Senior, you speak too highly of me. This junior’s martial path has just
begun. I still need to rely on Senior’s advice. As such, Senior is this
Yi Yun’s attitude was modest. He knew that his martial path was still
long and far. The Purple Crystal could aid him, but he could not
completely rely on the Purple Crystal.
“I am not worthy of being your teacher.” The youth quickly shook his
head. “Your teacher is my Master.”
Although the youth was arrogant, he had heartfelt respect and loyalty to
the sword palace’s owner.
At this moment, the gray-dressed elder walked over. The way he looked at
Yi Yun was also one filled with promise.
“Your body is filled with mystery. I can’t see through your future, but
although you have entered Dao Enlightenment Hall, the other places in
this immortal palace still have restrictions left behind by Master. Even
Chibai and I have no means of manipulating it. I believe that you would
not be able to enter those places for now.”
“I’ll bring you to Heavenly Construct Hall, for you to pick two treasures
that you want. They should play some role in your growth… ”
“Thank you, Senior.” Yi Yun naturally did not expect that he could gain
control of the entire Pure Yang Sword Palace after gaining a Dao Leaf in
Dao Enlightenment Hall.
As for the treasures in Heavenly Construct Hall, he looked forward to it
Originally, the gray-dressed elder had said that he could only be given
one treasure meant for Heaven Ascension realm warriors, but now, he was
The original one treasure was probably a rule set by the Pure Yang Sword
Palace owner, as for the second treasure was probably an additional gift
from the Sword Spirit.
