True Martial World - chapter-864
“Luo Xiaodie, Luo Kui… ”
Yi Yun looked at the man and woman, whose physiques were highly
disparate. According to what Luo Huo’er said, Empress Luo had many
geniuses under her. Luo Xiaodie and Luo Kui were only two of many.
In a sense, Empress Luo’s banquet had achieved the effect of displaying a
show of force. Empress Xuan was inferior to her in every single way.
However, Empress Luo was not satisfied with this. Empress Xuan had
deliberately avoided any conflict at the banquet by not bringing the Xuan
family geniuses. This made Empress Luo feel like she was punching into
cotton, it did not feel effective.
“Without Xuan Junyue here, it sure is boring!” Luo Kui said in an unruly
manner, his voice echoing throughout the venue.
The impression that Luo Kui gave others was that he was an uninhibited
boor. And he was apparently using this to deliberately say things that
were out of line. He had challenged Empress Xuan’s bottom line again and
As Empress Luo ate some grapes, a smile hung on her face. She did not
have any intentions of reprimanding Luo Kui.
Luo Kui felt as though he had been encouraged. Standing up from his seat,
he cupped his hands and said to everyone, “Everyone, if it’s just eating
and drinking, it might be somewhat boring. Let me add some excitement for
After Luo Kui said this, he swept his gaze across the young elites on
Empress Xuan’s side. Although there were quite a number of young elites
clearly on Empress Xuan’s side, for example, Yi Yun, Gu Qing, Ling Wu,
etc, Luo Kui could not call them out to thrash them. This was because the
result of using them as targets was highly ineffective. Take Yi Yun for
example, he was only at the beginning stages of the Heaven Ascension
realm. Even if Luo Kui thrashed him, there would not be any sense of
accomplishment. Instead, he might be rebuked as being a bully.
However, if he did not thrash these people, there was truly no one on
Empress Xuan’s side either.

Luo Kui stroked his chin and as his gaze swept across the banquet hall,
it ended up on Luo Huo’er. Immediately following that, a smile suffused
across his lips.
“Your Highness! It was said that Your Highness’ attainments in
fire-elemental laws are matchless and Your Highness is well-versed in the
Desolate Heaven technique. No peer your own age can match you. This lowly
one has recently been researching fire-elemental laws and the Desolate
Heaven technique and he is very interested in these aspects. However,
this lowly one isn’t very well-versed at its practical effects. Will it
be possible for Your Highness to give some advice?”
When Luo Kui said this, everyone in the audience was stunned.
Luo Kui may be asking for advice, but if Luo Huo’er were to accede to his
request, he might do something nasty during the ‘advice-giving’. If
that was the case, it would no longer be a simple problem of
What sort of identity did Luo Huo’er enjoy!? It was unexpected that Luo
Kui would target Luo Huo’er after failing to find a target to thrash.
This was practically him being lawless!
Indeed, Empress Xuan’s expression had already sunk.
She came knowing that Empress Luo would flaunt her power, and she had
tolerated this repeatedly. However, it was unexpected that Empress Luo
had set her sights on Luo Huo’er.
For a princess of the country to compete with a boor like Luo Kui, it
would be a sully to Luo Huo’er’s reputation regardless of the outcome!
Actually, if it was just the Desolate Heaven technique, Empress Xuan
believed that Luo Huo’er would win. However, it was most likely that Luo
Kui was just a probe. After beating Luo Kui, it was certain that a better
person would replace him. If Luo Huo’er accepted Luo Kui’s challenge but
did not accept the match after his, it would not prevent others from
thinking that Luo Huo’er feared the challenge because she was feeling
unconfident of herself.

At this moment, Crimson Firmament said with a smile, “It is good for
young people to desire to do better. Princess Purple Spirit is a person
of a kindly disposition and it is well known for her love of talents. If
you sincerely ask for her advice, she would definitely not hesitate to
Crimson Firmament’s words were equivalent to acknowledging Luo Kui’s
sudden thought. People had the belief that Empress Luo was only planned
on suppressing the young elites on Empress Xuan’s side, but they never
expected that they were planning on sullying Princess Purple Spirit’s
At this moment, Luo Huo’er spoke with a sneer as she looked at Luo Kui.
“Luo Kui, have you been conferred nobility?”
Facing Luo Huo’er’s question, Luo Kui failed to answer immediately.
Amongst the younger generation of the Fey race, his background was
definitely not bad. He was from the Cloud Sun Luo clan, so although it
was inferior to Luo Huo’er, it was still one of the top twenty factions
in the Luo clan. Compared to Ran Xueyi and Donglin Yu, he was not one bit
inferior. However, Luo Huo’er had deliberately avoided Luo Kui’s
background and she instead pointed out his lack of nobility.
Descendants of a noble family could easily enjoy a life of luxury, but if
they wanted to be conferred nobility, they needed to accomplish actual
meritorious achievements for the country!
Luo Kui was still young, so how could he have any merits whatsoever. He
was not conferred nobility, but for Luo Huo’er, as an heir to the throne,
she had already been conferred the title of royalty!
The difference in their background may be small, but the gap in their
nobility ranks was huge!
When Luo Huo’er hit Luo Kui on a soft spot, his expression turned ugly.
He said with a muffled and unhappy voice, “This lowly one’s status is
humble. According to the rules, there is truly no right to receive advice
from Your Highness. However, rules are not absolute at times… For
example, at this banquet, aren’t the seats also not determined according
to the rules?”
When Luo Kui said this, everyone’s eyes could not help but drift towards

Luo Huo’er had rebuked Luo Kui for not abiding the rules, but Luo Kui had
struck back while keeping his countenance. Indeed, it was out of line for
Luo Huo’er to allow Yi Yun to sit beside her.
“This brother, you truly have a good appetite.” Luo Kui said with a faint
smile as he looked at the spiritual food that had been reduced to a large
bone pile in front of Yi Yun.
Yi Yun did not expect that the arrows of conflict to suddenly shift back
“I wonder which family clan does this brother come from and if he has a
noble title?” He had knowingly asked the question.
Many people under Empress Luo’s camp looked at Yi Yun and they waited for
him to make a fool of himself. However, they failed to see any look of
distress on Yi Yun’s face. Yi Yun pulled out a snow-silk satin napkin
from the table and he began slowly wiping his mouth. “This lowly one
comes from a countryside in the lower realm. As for my background… my
ancestors are all farmers.”
Yi Yun’s response made everyone’s eyes nearly pop out. Even Empress
Xuan’s people, such as Ling Wu and Gu Qing, were impressed at Yi Yun’s
nerves. If anyone was squeezed in such a way, one would typically hope to
hide away. Yet, he had been able to answer in all seriousness.
“Hahaha!” Luo Kui laughed out loud. “Brother, you sure are ‘simple’.
Brother, you must have gotten to know Princess Purple Spirit in the lower
realm. Her Highness is truly considerate and kind to men of talent,
considering how she has given such a privilege to a human from the lower
When Luo Kui said this, everyone was enlightened. So this fellow had
gotten to know Princess Purple Spirit back in the lower realm. Princess
Purple Spirit was surely immature. How could she favor a fellow that she
got to know in the lower realm?
Empress Luo glanced at Empress Xuan as a teasing smile suffused across
her lips. Although she did not believe that the extremely lofty-minded
Luo Huo’er would fall in love with Yi Yun, if she were to embellish the
story and report it to Emperor Luo, Empress Luo would definitely feel
furious even if he was fond of Luo Huo’er. This would be shameful for the

At this moment, Yi Yun had just wiped his mouth and used a snow-silk
satin napkin to wipe clean his hands. Then he threw the napkin down and
said, “I learned a bit of the Desolate Heaven technique in the lower
realm. I had received five or six months worth of education in the
Desolate Heaven technique with Princess Purple Spirit, so I can be
considered to have a tiny bit of success in it.”
“Didn’t you wish for Princess Purple Spirit to give you advice on the
Desolate Heaven technique? You already said that you just began
researching on the Desolate Heaven technique, and I guess that your
standard can’t be that high. You might not even be up to my level. If you
were to directly get Princess Purple Spirit to give you advice, I’m
afraid that you wouldn’t be able to comprehend it. Why not I give you
When Yi Yun said this, everyone present was dumbfounded.
Even Empress Luo was somewhat stunned, much less Luo Kui.
Yi Yun’s words were filled with information. They also knew that Yi Yun
had come in first place at the Mt. Azure Billow collective training. With
Yi Yun’s background, it was already astounding to have such an
But… Yi Yun also knew the Desolate Heaven technique!?
“Five or six months worth of education in the Desolate Heaven technique”?
“Considered to have a tiny bit of success”?
The Desolate Heaven technique was intricate and profound. Without a few
decades of hard work, it was impossible to have any success! Yi Yun was
This content is taken from
But if it was said that Yi Yun had been exposed to the Desolate Heaven
technique for decades, it was also impossible. He was a warrior from the
lower realm, with a bone age of less than forty. Martial arts would have
taken a great deal of his time, so how could he spare the time to study
the Desolate Heaven technique?
“Little Yun, what are you saying?” At this moment, Luo Huo’er’s Yuan Qi
voice transmission reverberated in Yi Yun’s ear. “Little Yun, I know that
you have some talent in the Desolate Heaven technique, but you do not
know that the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven’s Desolate Heaven
technique is the best in all of the 12 Empyrean Heavens. It’s completely
different to the Desolate Heaven technique from the lower realm. Be it
technique or hand seals, all the methods are different! After coming to
the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven, have you learned the Desolate
Heaven technique from the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven?”
Yi Yun shook his head. He obviously understood the rationale behind Luo
Huo’er’s words. Although Yi Yun had the Purple Crystal, the time he spent
learning the Desolate Heaven technique was too short. Even in the lower
realm, the time he spent learning the Desolate Heaven technique was
counted in months, much less while he was in the Ten Thousand Fey
“Hahaha!” Luo Kui suddenly burst out into laughter. “What did you say?
Did you want to advise me? That’s interesting. I had just nonchalantly
mentioned that I’m a beginner at the Desolate Heaven technique, and a
person like you who has only studied the Desolate Heaven technique for
five or six months jumped out to advise me? A godly person like you has
actually gained the favor of Her Highness? Are you not a cheat? You have
used Her Highness’ consideration of men of talent to fool her!” Luo Kui
He did not dare to insult Princess Purple Spirit, but he had no scruple
when it came to Yi Yun. Regardless if Yi Yun had deceived Princess Purple
Spirit or not, mocking Yi Yun would be equivalent to sullying Princess
Purple Spirit’s reputation.
At this moment, Yi Yun had already stood up.
Luo Kui gave Yi Yun a contemptuous look. He was ambitious and he
belittled the geniuses present. He could only make a name for himself by
trampling on the high and mighty princess. By aiding Prince Crimson
Firmament in ascending to the throne, he would eventually be conferred
But at this point, he could not even trample on a princess, but a small
fry had come courting death.
Luo Kui had been cultivating for eighty years and he had studied the
Desolate Heaven technique for more than a decade. He had definitely come
prepared! Even if he met Luo Huo’er, he was confident that he could match

There were many people present who knew of Luo Kui’s background. As they
looked at Yi Yun, they shook their heads. This was all a farce.
Seeing how this matter could no longer be prevented, Luo Huo’er’s lips
quivered. She eventually chose to remain silent. She understood Yi Yun.
She knew that Yi Yun would often do unexpected things. Previously in the
Tai Ah Divine City, Luo Huo’er had believed that she would definitely
triumph over him, but she always ended up suffering.
But this time, Luo Huo’er had no idea how Yi Yun was going to beat Luo
