Qin Yun carried Xiao Yuemei and ran quickly and lightly through the dark passageway of the Forbidden Palace.
Xiao Yuemei found it extremely strange. Qin Yun did not run out of the Forbidden Palace. Instead, he was running around the palace. Just as she was about to ask, Qin Yun entered a storage room.
Qin Yun carried Xiao Yue into the storage room and used his mental force to lift up the thick stone tiles on the ground. He jumped down and entered the secret passageway.
"Secret passage!" Xiao Yue Mei said in surprise.
Qin Yun used his mind energy to move the stone slabs above him and covered the entrance to the secret passageway. Then, he quickly ran through the secret passageway.
He had only ran for a short period of time when he sensed the terrifying aura of Ye Chang Chao coming from behind him.
An expert of the Martial Dao Realm emitted anger and killing intent from his entire body. It formed a wave of aura that was extremely terrifying.
Qin Yun increased his speed and cursed softly, "Damn it, how did he discover us?"
"Is there more Soulshake Powder?" Xiao Yue Mei was also very anxious. If the Martial Dao Realm cultivator caught up, the two of them would not be able to escape.
Qin Yun sighed and said, "No more!"
All along, he had thought that the Flame Cloud Step was sufficient but now he realized that his speed was still too slow. He could only run at seventy to eighty meters per second and the people chasing after him could reach two to three hundred meters per second.
Suddenly, there was a surge of strong inner force coming from the secret passage!
Qin Yun hurriedly lay down and moved Xiao Yue Mei beneath him at the same time. He used his body to protect her!
Like a storm, the ball of inner force whistled through the narrow passageway like countless sharp blades that slashed at Qin Yun's body. Furthermore, the inner force contained an irritable lightning attribute as it entered his body and wreaked havoc through his meridians and flesh.
Qin Yun's back was riddled with scars and was in extreme pain. He gritted his teeth as his heart was filled with unwillingness because if he was given a little more time, he would be able to leave the secret passage and rescue Xiao Yue Mei.
Qin Yun, who was lying on the ground, turned his head to look behind him and saw a skinny elder dressed in a golden robe.
The old man's eyes were like lightning. With a furious expression on his face, he clenched his fists tightly. Threads of lightning flashed, illuminating the pitch-black passageway.
This old man was the head of the Ye family, the father of Empress Ye, Ye Changchao!
When Ye Changchao saw Qin Yun's face, he immediately recognized him. He shouted angrily, "Qin Yun, you're actually still alive!? Where is the corpse of the Tian Xiao Queen?"
It was as if he knew that the Queen of Heaven's Roar had been killed!
"Aren't you curious about me coming out of the Forbidden Land?" Qin Yun calmed down and said indifferently.
Ye Chang Chao's eyes flashed with lightning, and he asked: "Did the Soul Refining Demon save you? Where is he? Have you mastered the art of soul refining?"
Qin Yun endured the pain as he stood up and said calmly, "I have mastered the art of soul refinement. As long as you promise me to let Yue Mei leave this place safely, I will give you the art of soul refinement."
Ye Chang Chao laughed sinisterly: "Now that you have fallen into my hands, you actually want to negotiate conditions with me? You even killed the Queen of Tian Xiao, do you know who she is to me? She is my sister!"
Qin Yun and Xiao Yue Mei were alarmed, especially Xiao Yue Mei. The reason for that was because the Tian Xiao Empress was surnamed Lu and was from the Tian Xiao Empire's Lu family. In other words, this matter was caused by the affair between the Ye Family and a certain Lu Family's wife!
Qin Yun cursed in his heart. The noble circle was truly a mess!
"Xiao Yue Mei must be in our hands. Only with her in our hands will her elder sister obediently marry. Only then will we be able to obtain the Immortal Graveyard Diagram from her."
Ye Chang Chao raised his hand and said with a sneer, "Qin Yun, back then, when I extracted your spirit veins, I never expected you to grow to such an extent. I never expected you to use the Soulshake Powder to kill my sister of the Martial Dao Realm."
Ye Chang Chao laughed sinisterly, he condensed a terrifying Qi from his fingertips, his entire body was covered with lightning.
Just as he was about to attack, Xiao Yue Mei suddenly appeared in front of Qin Yun!
Qin Yun did not expect Xiao Yue Mei's sudden action. It was already too late for him to stop her.
Just then, Ye Changchao's chest was suddenly pierced by a golden dragon head! The electricity on his body immediately disappeared and the smile on his face froze.
Behind Ye Chang Chao, a bright golden light suddenly appeared and a tall and sturdy man with a handsome and slightly valiant appearance appeared!
The big size man held a golden spear in his hand and pierced through Ye Chang Chao's chest!
The big man's eyes under his thick eyebrows were deep and sharp, shining with a bright light. On the right side of his face, there was a dragon-shaped scar that was very deep.
The golden spear in his hand was also very eye-catching. The spearhead was a dragon's head that was engraved with exquisite carvings and the spear shaft was covered with carvings of dragon scales. It looked extremely special and exquisite.
Xiao Yue Mei, who was standing in front of Qin Yun, seemed to have been scared silly by the burly man's imposing manner. She was rendered speechless.
Qin Yun recognized the burly man and he was very familiar with him!
After a moment of shock, he cried out involuntarily: "Royal father!"
His voice was filled with all sorts of emotions, joy, excitement and longing...there was still a hint of blame!
This burly man was Qin Yun's father, the emperor of the Tian Qin Empire, Qin Long!
"Xiao Yun, I knew you weren't dead, hahaha!!" Qin Long's laughter was vigorous and full of valor, unlike other emperors who called themselves "Zhen".
While he was laughing, he kicked Ye Chang Chao's skinny body off the spear.
"Qin Long, you....you broke through? Dragon King Spear... You found the Dragon King's Spear?" Ye Chang Chao's heart had already been destroyed after being stabbed by the spear. Moreover, Qin Long had infused his inner force into his body, causing his meridians to be severely damaged.
Qin Long held the spear in his hand and fiercely stabbed it at Ye Chang Chao again, raising him up into the air, he sneered: "Ye Chang Chao, you all have my throne on your mind, so I gave it to you guys. Why did you harm my son?"
"Imperial Father, wait for me to extract his martial spirit!" Qin Yun hurriedly walked over and placed his hand on Ye Chang Chao's abdomen.
"Qin Long, quickly tell your son to stop!" Ye Chang Chao screamed out with all his might, the veins on his forehead were popping out in fear.
Seeing his frightened appearance, Qin Long couldn't help but laugh heartily.
Qin Yun said coldly, "Ye Changchao, back then, you had taken my spirit vein as well. Now, it's time for you to repay your debt!"
"Quickly stop, I can promise you everything. I can let Xiao Yuelan marry you, Ahhhhhhhh!!!"
Ye Chang Chao cried out in pain, his heart was pierced by the Dragon King Spear, his heart and three meridians were already damaged and he was unable to resist at all.
Xiao Yue Mei and Qin Long watched from the side with widened eyes. Moments later, they saw Qin Yun inhale a large ball of purplish-gold colored mist from Ye Chang Chao's abdomen.
Ye Chang Chao's martial spirit was a purple gold grade martial spirit, sparkling with electricity. It was a purple gold thunder martial spirit!
Xiao Yue Mei quickly took out her Mirror Martial Spirit, looking at the just extracted Purple Gold Thunder Martial Spirit, then she nodded her head in satisfaction.
"Aiyo, this is a rare Martial Spirit, but so what? In the end, didn't it still end up in my son's hands?" Qin Long laughed proudly.
After Ye Chang Chao's Martial Spirit was extracted, it was as if he had lost half of his life. His face became deathly pale and filled with an aura of death, full of despair and anger.
Qin Yun kept his purple gold thunder martial spirit into the Soul Sealing Pearl and looked at Ye Chang Chao's despairing and resentful gaze. He said with a sneer, "Old thing, when you were extracting my spirit vein, you never expected this to happen, did you? If you hadn't treated me that way back then, you wouldn't be where you are now!"
"The Blue Spirit Star Palace will never let go of an evil demon like you. you have come out of the forbidden zone, everyone will suspect that you obtained the soul refining spell from the Soul Refining Demon. Don't be too happy too early, hahaha...." Ye Chang Chao was in a daze, laughing out loud in despair.
"Go to hell, old thing!" Qin Long cursed, he waved his hand and fiercely smashed his palm onto Ye Chang Chao's head, killing him.
Xiao Yue Mei snorted lightly, "He died so easily, we let him off easy!"
Qin Long laughed, "If I had known I would be blamed, I would have not come!"
Xiao Yue Mei stuck out her tongue and laughed, "Uncle Long, you appeared at just the right time. You have been missing for so long, have you been hiding in this secret passageway?"
Qin Long nodded his head and sighed, "A few years ago, I failed to break through, causing my cultivation to go berserk, causing me to be seriously injured, so I couldn't take care of a lot of things and made Xiao Yun suffer. Luckily, he was fine, otherwise I would have felt guilty for the rest of my life."
Tian Qin, Tian Qi and Tian Xiao emperors. Qin Long was the youngest and also the weakest of them all. Tian Qi and Tian Xiao emperors were all in their fifties.
Qin Long was only thirty-eight years old right now, not much older than Xiao Yang Long, the crown prince of the Tian Xiao Empire. Because he was young and weak, the overall strength of the Tian Qin Empire was weak.
In order to turn the situation around, Qin Long had been cultivating in seclusion, leaving everything for the ministers to handle. At the same time, the treacherous officials had joined forces to take control of Tianqin.
Therefore, Qin Long's cultivation went berserk and after his cultivation regressed, he lost quite a lot of power. It was at that time that Qin Yun suffered.
Qin Long pulled out his spear and wiped off the blood on it.
Xiao Yue Mei looked at the gold dragon spear and asked: "Uncle Long, your Tian Qin Empires Spear, didn't you lose it? When did you find it? It is said that this weapon are the strongest of the three empires!"
Qin Long laughed. "It was originally in the hands of my grandfather but I didn't expect him to still be alive. After I found him, he gave me this spear. This old fellow goes into closed door cultivation all day long. Otherwise, if we had his help, Xiao Yun and I wouldn't be in such a miserable state."
Qin Long's grandfather was Qin Yun's great-grandfather, the Principal of the Hua Ling Wu Academy, Qin Yonghe!
When Qin Yonghe had entered the Cloud Dragon Mountain Range to investigate, he had brought the Dragon King Spear with him. Therefore, after he disappeared, the Dragon King Spear was also considered to have been lost. This was a huge blow to the Tian Qin Empire at that time.
Xiao Yue Mei said: "In two or three days, the betrothal ceremony will begin! Brother, are you going?"
Before he could answer, Qin Long said, "Of course!! I want to go too! Back then, I also went to discuss the marriage of Yue Lan and Xiao Yun."
Qin Long placed his hand on Qin Yun's head and said with a smile, "Little Yun, you can go to the palace to participate in the engagement ceremony without worry. I'll be there as well. You can rest assured!"
"I originally wanted to go too but if I go, they will know that I was saved by my brother. Since two martial arts cultivators died because of this matter, I won't go and cause any more trouble!" Xiao Yue Mei whispered.
