True Martial World - chapter-863
Ran Xueyi and Donglin Yu both felt that if they sat in such a striking
location, especially if they were beside Luo Huo’er, they would only sit
on a third of their seats, and they would sit with an extremely straight
back. They would try their best not to get any food, and if they ate, it
would just be a tiny portion. They would not reveal their teeth while
eating or make a sound while chewing. If they drank any wine, they would
hold the cup with two hands, and drink respectfully. Furthermore, if the
Empresses did not hold a wine cup, they would not touch theirs.
But looking at Yi Yun, he was practically invincible. He was gulping food
down by the mouthfuls. Whatever dish looked the most exquisite or had the
richest Yuan Qi would be eaten. As for wine… it was as though he was
afraid of choking on eating too much. He drank as he ate, using the wine
to wash the food down.
This was truly… the perfect display of a a bumpkin’s characteristics.
Thankfully, Empress Luo’s self-restraint was good. Despite there being a
human punk, who obviously did not know the rules while sitting there,
causing a scene, she could turn a blind eye towards it.
“Little Yun, are you the reincarnation of a starving ghost? Why are you
eating so fast?”
Luo Huo’er was amused by Yi Yun’s actions and she wanted to laugh., But
on the surface, she maintained her elegant and luxurious appearance.
Luo Huo’er detested such occasions greatly. It was too boring, and she
had to constantly pay attention to etiquette. It was much better to chat
with Yi Yun to amuse herself.
“Since Empress Luo is treating us, and she’s your arch-enemy and she has
put out so much good spiritual food, I might as well eat them. It’s not
like I’ll lose out.” Yi Yun sent a voice transmission as though it was
His tone clearly did not show any fear or respect for Empress Luo.
“Hehe, if you have the ability to eat her broke, that would be great! I’m
telling you, don’t look at that old witch appearing as though she’s some
mother of the world, she’s actually bad to the bone.”
In the royal palace, Luo Huo’er were restrained in various ways, so she
did not dare to talk nonsense. Now, she had finally encountered a friend,
so Luo Huo’er had no scruples in the way she spoke.
Previously, Luo Huo’er had encountered many people who were extremely
respectful to Empress Luo, Empress Xuan and herself. They were so
subservient that they wished that their eyes would grow on the ground and
their backs were as bent as a shrimp. Luo Huo’er found Yi Yun, a person
who did not care about rules just like her, very fun as though she had
found a confidant.
As Yi Yun and Luo Huo’er began chatting through Yuan Qi voice
transmissions, the banquet was not going very harmoniously on the other
Empress Xuan knew Empress Luo’s goal of hosting this banquet very well.
She wanted to display her strength and make the young elites
participating in the Luo Divine Hall trials know who was the true mother
of the Luo clan. As such, more and more young elites would choose to join
Empress Luo’s clan and turn their backs on Empress Xuan.
“I heard that Younger Sister brought quite a number of people from your
family to participate in our Luo clan’s Luo Divine Hall trials.
Especially that Xuan Junyue, I heard that he is the best in the present
Xuan family generation. Why don’t I see dear nephew Junyue? I remembered
sending him an invitation as well.” Empress Luo suddenly said to Empress
Although her voice was not loud, everyone present could hear her clearly.
Xuan Junyue was an influential figure amongst the younger generation of
the Xuan family. Compared to Ran Xueyi and Donglin Yu, his reputation
exceeded theirs. He was not ranked as one of the four great young masters
of the royal capital because the Xuan family was not located in the royal
Empress Xuan smiled and said, “Junyue is still in reclusive training and
he will not take a step out of the door for the next few days. He’s
making preparations for the Luo Divine Hall trials.”
Empress Xuan found an excuse to deflect the question. Xuan Junyue
obviously wasn’t in reclusive training. Back then, he had gone to Luo
Huo’er’s palace and passed news to Luo Huo’er.

However, Empress Xuan would not let Xuan Junyue participate in the
banquet hosted by Empress Luo. This was because Empress Xuan knew very
well that Empress Luo wanted to show a display of strength at the
banquet, and she would very likely begin with Xuan Junyue as one of her
Xuan Junyue was the best genius in the Xuan family, and he was considered
one of their highlighting banners. If Empress Luo were to target Xuan
Junyue at the banquet, Empress Xuan’s camp would suffer a massive loss of
reputation if Xuan Junyue were to lose.
Before the Luo Divine Hall trials, Empress Xuan could not afford to lose
By appearing weaker than they did, and avoiding battle, it was much
better than losing directly.
“Reclusive training? I think that Brother Junyue did not come because he
is afraid?” At this moment, a loud voice resounded.
Everyone turned their heads in alarm and they looked at the person who
said it. The person was sitting one level lower than Princess White Fox.
That seat was almost equivalent to Ran Xueyi and Donglin Yu, and it was
considered a very noble seat.
Two people sat at the table, a man and a woman. The woman had a petite
figure that looked like a child’s, while the man was youthful, muscular
and stout. He wore red battle armor, and his voice sounded like the beat
of a drum, with bold undertones.
The person who had openly mocked Xuan Junyue was this burly youth!

Empress Xuan frowned. With the status she enjoyed, how could she let a
junior show her disrespect at this banquet?
However, before Empress Xuan spoke a word, Empress Luo had already opened
her mouth and rebuked the person in question, “Luo Kui, I’m speaking with
Empress Xuan, there’s no reason for you to interject!”
Empress Luo’s voice sounded harsh and she was faster than Empress Xuan.
Her statement sounded like she was rebuking Luo Kui, but in fact, it was
to shut Empress Xuan up.
Being rebuked wasn’t the loss of a piece of meat after all. It might even
be possible that Luo Kui had said that statement as a mouthpiece of
As the host, she could not say certain things. There was no fault in
letting a rash and reckless junior say such words, but it still managed
to achieve the effect of smacking Empress Xuan in the face.
The young elites present immediately felt that the banquet was beginning
to be filled with the smell of gunpowder.
Indeed, Empress Luo and Empress Xuan were arch-enemies. How was it
possible for them to exist peacefully at a banquet?
However, Empress Xuan had been calculative, and deliberately prevented
Xuan Junyue from attending to evade any adverse consequences.
Although this was a smart move, Empress Xuan had already practically lost
to Empress Luo by a notch.

Yi Yun wiped his mouth and glanced at Luo Kui. His cultivation level was
at the perfected Heaven Ascension realm.
He had a deep Yuan Qi foundation and a tremendous bloodline. His strength
That was the evaluation Yi Yun gave him.
“The Xuan Junyue that was mentioned can’t beat that big guy?” Yi Yun
asked Luo Huo’er with a voice transmission.
Luo Huo’er grunted and said, “It’s not certain that he can’t beat him,
but the number of people behind me and Mother are few in number. The best
one is Xuan Junyue. However, Empress Luo has many more people on her
side. The Luo Kui you see is just one of them. If we were really to go at
odds, we will definitely lose out.”
“I see.” Yi Yun understood that as the saying goes, two fists had
difficulty overcoming four hands. Having more people was always
advantageous. Empress Xuan and Luo Huo’er’s foundations were just too
weak after all. “Are you telling me that Empress Luo will use this
banquet to demonstrate a show of strength to us disciples who are joining
the Luo Divine Hall trials, so that we will join her camp?”
“That’s right. That witch sure did her calculations!”
“How would the competition work? We can’t just fight here in the banquet,
right?” Yi Yun was somewhat curious. There was not much space in the
middle of the banquet hall, so if there was a fight, it would make the
banquet hall a mess.
“Not necessarily. It might be a display of tricks in other aspects,
showing the best of your skills, or whatever things that can add a bit of
interest to the banquet. If it really came to blows, it would just be
unbecoming. Why… don’t tell me you want to compete with that big guy?”
Luo Huo’er asked with a grin.

But Yi Yun shook his head, “I might not be able to beat that big guy.”
The opponent was at the perfected Heaven Ascension realm, while Yi Yun
had just entered the beginning stages of the Heaven Ascension realm. The
Luo clan royal capital was filled with geniuses. Although Yi Yun was
confident of himself, he was not certain that he could leapfrog such a
vast difference in cultivation level and defeat a young elite from the
cream of the crop of the Luo clan.
He did not know what tricks Luo Kui had at all.
The other side had come prepared, and if he did things on a whim, he
would likely suffer if things came to blows.
“Hehehe, you are rather calm. Little Yun, I know you took first place at
the Mt. Azure Billow trials. To have such an achievement, you must have
encountered some interesting events in the lower realm, right? But
compared to the geniuses in the royal capital, the Fire Cloud State and
Phoenix Firmiana State don’t compare to much. Many of them are truly
formidable! You are so many subrealms weaker than him, and you want to
beat him? Difficult! And taking ten thousand steps back, even if you were
to beat him, he has partners. Are you going to beat a dozen of them by
yourself? Look at that petite girl. Her name is Luo Xiaodie, and she is
also one who is not to be trifled with!”
