Qin Yun pointed to his own arm and smiled. "When I sparred with Yue Kai, I transferred my inner yuans to this arm in time. That's why it was not destroyed."
Xiao Yue Lan saw Qin Yun's lion arm and could not help but say worriedly, "The Heavenly Lion totem on your arm is dead, is that alright? That Elder Luo is being too serious, I am very worried!"
"No! Since the Heavenly Lion's arm doesn't have a soul, I can only refine one. Didn't I master the soul refining technique? That won't be a problem for me." Qin Yun was not worried at all as he said with a smile.
Hearing what Qin Yun said, Xiao Yuelan also felt a lot more at ease.
"Come, let's go out. royal father should have already dealt with the matters outside!" Qin Yun pulled Xiao Yuelan along the secret passageway and exited from another exit.
Everyone in the main hall had already left the palace.
When Qin Yun and Xiao Yuelan arrived, only the Demon King and a dozen or so others were there with Qin Long, as well as Shui Yi Hui.
"Xiao Yun, I have decided to hand over all matters of the palace to the Demon Lord. He is my old friend!" Qin Long looked at an old man clad in grey and laughed.
Demon King Zhenren was Meng Fei Ling's grandfather. Qin Yun and Meng Fei Ling had a very good relationship. Qin Long had long secretly informed the Demon Lord to arrange for people to gather here, which was why he was able to capture the Ye Clan and the others in an instant.
"En!" Qin Yun nodded before bowing to Demon King Zhenren and a few other elders.
Meng Fei Ling smiled sweetly and said, "Little Brother Yun, congratulations. You've finally become crown prince again and you can even marry such a good wife."
Xiao Yue Lan smiled at her and said: "Big Sister Fei Ling, you have to help me watch over him in the future. Don't let him stir up trouble everywhere in the Star Xuan Wu Academy."
"Definitely!" Meng Fei Ling laughed.
"Yue Lan, let's return to the Eastern Palace!" said elder Shui from eastern blue spirit palace, the reason he stayed here was also to return to the Blue Spirit Star Palace with Xiao Yue Lan.
"En!" Xiao Yuelan nodded and bid farewell to Qin Yun and Qin Long before leaving the palace.
Qin Long patted Qin Yun on the shoulder and said with a solemn tone, "You are very tired today. Go and rest first. Leave this to us! When you have fully recovered, immediately return to the Star Xuan Wu Academy. You must become stronger as soon as possible."
Qin Yun looked at the Demon King and company with a heavy expression. It was as though something big was about to happen.
"I'll head back to the Star Xuan Wu Academy first!" said Meng Feiling, the smile on her face disappeared. It was obvious that she knew something.
After Meng FeiLing left, Qin Yun left the palace as well.
Although the palace was where Qin Yun grew up, it was always occupied by the empress. He did not know where he could rest in peace, so he went to the Divine Inscription Palace.
When Qin Yun arrived at the suite at the Divine Inscription palace, he saw Duan Qian and Xiao Yue mei recounting what had happened in the main hall of the Tian Qin Palace.
"Brother!" When Xiao Yue Mei saw Qin Yun, she shouted with great joy.
Duan Qian chuckled before leaving.
Qin Yun pinched her pretty face and said with a smile, "Yue Mei, your sister is fine! You see, I have repaid the debt she owed me back then."
"You're really loyal!" Xiao Yue Mei patted his shoulder and laughed like a little girl.
"Are your injuries serious?" she asked worriedly.
Qin Yun had already changed into a set of white clothes. He was dressed in light inscription equipment and was rapidly healing his injuries. He said, "It's nothing serious. It'll be fine after a night."
"Once I've arranged everything here, I'll take you to see Aunt Xiao."
Xiao Yue Mei nodded and smiled, "You will be my brother-in-law in the future but you will always be my brother! You are so much better than that bastard Xiao Yanglong."
Qin Yun took out a Soul Sealing Pearl that contained the Golden Lightning Sword martial soul. He then told Xiao Yue Mei that he had taken it from Qin Zhengfeng.
Xiao Yue Mei happily took out her small mirror and copied Gold Thunder Sword martial spirit into it.
Qin Yun said with an evil smile, "Tomorrow morning, you and I will enter the imperial palace. There are still many martial souls waiting for us inside."
Xiao Yue Mei also laughed sinisterly: "So evil!!! but I like it!" (TL NOTE : THIS GIRL ROCKS!!!)
Qin Yun rested for an entire night before he completely recovered. Before the sky brightened, he was woken up by Xiao Yue Mei. After that, he headed for the Tian Qin Palace.
After arriving at the imperial palace, the sun had already risen, releasing a warm golden morning light. It made the entire imperial palace seem lively and energetic.
Inside the main hall of the Tian Qin Palace, Qin Long was clad in black and he was thinking about the past as he looked at the empty main hall.
After Xiao Yue Mei saw Qin Long, she shouted: "Uncle Long!"
"Little Yue Mei!" Qin Long laughed as he replied.
Xiao Yue Mei asked softly: "Uncle Long, have you seen my father yet? Is there any hope for him?"
The smile on Qin Long's face disappeared and he shook his head. "He's just a puppet now. I wonder what kind of evil arts Xiao Yang Long and his mother used against him."
"Sigh... who asked him to spoil Xiao Yanglong so much, he didn't put up his guard at all." Xiao Yue Mei sighed softly.
Qin Long placed his hand on Qin Yun's shoulder and said, "Let's go and deal with those traitors!"
Xiao Yue Mei's watery eyes immediately flashed, those traitors' Martial Spirits would definitely be good, she smiled and urged: "Hurry and go, make the best use of your time!"
Qin Long brought Qin Yun and Xiao Yue Mei to the imperial palace and entered a dungeon.
Qin Long had removed all the guards in the dungeon. Other than Empress Ye and company, there was only Qin Yun and Xiao Yuemei.
When Empress Ye and the others were captured, they were tied up with special chains, making it impossible for them to use their internal energy and lock them up in the prison, making it impossible for them to escape.
"This is the Queen Ye!" After Xiao Yue Mei entered, she giggled.
"Xiao Yue Mei!" Queen Ye shouted in shock.
Empress Ye and company thought that Xiao Yue Mei had been rescued by Xiao Xuanqin. They never expected to be with Qin Yun.
"You know me? We don't seem to have met!" Xiao Yue Mei slapped her with all her might and smiled, "You are as hateful as the Queen of Tian Xiao Empire. Although she is in the Martial Dao Realm, she died before you."
Qin Yun walked over and without a word, he placed his hand on Empress Ye's abdomen. With a grunt, he began extracting her martial soul. Following that, Empress Ye let out a painful cry.
By her side, the Duke of Yan watched in a daze. His heart was filled with fear because he could tell that Qin Yun was extracting Empress Ye's Martial Spirit!
"Golden Thunder Martial Spirit is pretty good too." Qin Yun said with a smile before pouring the martial soul into the Soul Sealing Pearl.
"You.... You are extracting a martial spirit, this is an evil art!" Duke of yan panicked. Then, he looked at Qin Long, who was standing at the door and shouted in a sorrowful voice, "Your majesty, this old servant knows my wrongs. I shouldn't have extracted His Highness Crown Prince's spirit vein. Please imprison me for the rest of my life!"
Qin Long expressionlessly stood there, not saying a word.
"Ah!" The Duke of Yan cried out in pain as Qin Yun began extracting his martial spirit.
Empress Ye cried out. Her martial spirit was gone, inner yuan completely destroyed and her Ye Family was finished.
"You all hurt Yun'er that much back then and even conspired together to kill me. After that, you all still want to destroy the Queen's corpse. I'm already being merciful by not executing you all too quickly." Qin Long coldly snorted.
Xiao Yue Mei held the mirror and smiled at Yan Guo's martial spirit, saying, "This is a Platinum Wind Martial Spirit, not bad. I've always wanted a Wind Martial Spirit, finally I have one."
Although she wouldn't be able to use it, she could use it after copying it. Perhaps, she might be able to use it in the future.
The martial spirits of those old officials, most of them were Silver martial spirits, which weren't really that good. Xiao Yue Mei didn't even like them and didn't use a mirror to look at them.
After their martial spirits were extracted, they had all lost half their lives.
Now, they finally felt the pain of Qin Yun having his spirit vein extracted, as well as helplessness and despair.
And at that time, Qin Yun was only a ten-year-old child!
"Qin Yun, you are a Soul Devouring Demon!" The Duke of Yan's weak voice was filled with despair and fear.
"Even if I am an evil demon, I was personally raised by you! In order to thank you, I'll send you on your way!" Qin Yun took out a ghost head saber.
"Wait, let me do it, let me do it!" Xiao Yue Mei giggled and took out a few poisonous needles. She bared her jade teeth and said, "These poisonous needles were given to me by Qin Feng. I heard that Empress Ye gave them to him for self-defense."
When Empress Ye saw the poison needle, she couldn't help but scream out before fainting due to the shock!
Clearly, she herself was extremely afraid of this poison needle.
Xiao Yue Lan used her mind to control the poison needles to fly over and stab the tens of people inside. Then, she said, "Qin Feng said that Empress Ye often uses these poison needles to torture the palace maids and her enemies. I'll use it to deal with them now."
After being poisoned, there was no change on the surface. It was just that it was extremely painful!
The unconscious empress woke up in pain!
"This is retribution for evil!" Qin Long laughed coldly. If he hadn't left through the secret passage, he might have been tortured by the empress's poisonous needles.
Qin Yun had obtained many martial spirits but there were not many good ones. The inferior ones could be used for practice. The most powerful part of the soul refining technique was that it needed inscriptions to be engraved to strengthen one's martial spirits. After fusing them, one would become even stronger.
"The matters of the Imperial Palace have been handed over to the Demon Lord and the others. I can cultivate peacefully too... To be honest, although I am the Emperor, I rarely manage the affairs of the imperial palace." When Qin Long saw that the Duke of Yan and the rest had died, he took out a few fire talismans and burned them all down.
"Father, is something big going to happen soon?" Qin Yun asked.
"Yes! Demon King Zhenglong is in the Cloud Dragon Mountain Range and he found out that there will be a large group of evil beast and ghost beasts crossing the Cloud Dragon River.
Qin Long looked solemn as he sighed, "I have already approved that I will use all the crystal coins in the national treasury to protect the ten major cities and fifty smaller cities of our Tian Qin Empire. Once a large number of evil beasts and ghosts enter, it will become very dangerous outside the city walls."
Qin Yun and Xiao Yue Mei looked at each other in shock. They asked, "When will the horde arrive?"
Back at the Divine Inscription Palace, Qin Yun had told Xiao Yue Mei that Xiao Xuan Qin was in the Cloud Dragon Mountain Range. If a horde of beasts appeared, Xiao Xuan Qin, who was hiding in the Cloud Dragon Mountain Range, would be in danger.
Therefore, Qin Yun and Xiao Yue Mei were very anxious to know when the horde of beasts would arrive.
This would allow them to quickly save Xiao Xuan Qin.
