Lan Fengjin hurriedly returned to the Blue Spirit Star Palace in order to investigate the reason why Zhou Zhonghui had been released. From the information that Qin Yun and company had, Zhou Zhonghui had come for him.
However, behind Zhou Zhonghui, there was an invisible black curtain!
"Blue Spirit Star Palace is truly a mysterious place." The more Qin Yun thought about it, the more he found it strange.
The Inscription Gate was without a doubt the foundation of Blue Spirit Star Palace. For many years, no one had been able to pass the assessment of the Inscription Gate. There had to be some sort of secret behind it.
"The founder of Blue Spirit Star Palace, Martial King Lan Xiao, must be connected to the Immortal Graveyard! Maybe the secret is hidden inside the Inscription Gate."
As Qin Yun walked, he did not think about the martial arts competition that day. Furthermore, he thought of many things that he wanted to know. For example, the Star Xuan Wu Academy he was in had all sorts of secrets.
He vaguely felt that it was extremely likely that these secrets were all related.
In the arena, the crowd was in an uproar. It was extremely lively.
Even many teachers and martial dao instructors came to join in the fun.
As for Qin Yun and Zhou Zhonghui's duel, it was at noon. It was only early in the morning, so they still had to wait for four to six hours.
When Qin Yun entered the arena, he sensed many powerful auras. There were quite a few people from Blue Spirit Star Palace. Just as Du Gui had said, many experts from Blue Spirit Star Palace had come.
When he entered the passageway leading to the dueling platform, Qin Yun saw Lan Fengjin.
"Sister Lan, you're finally back!" Qin Yun said with a smile. He immediately felt more at ease.
"What? You think something happened to me inside the Blue Spirit Star Palace?" Lan Fengjin smiled as her expression suddenly turned solemn. She said, "Qin Yun, I've heard something impressive when I went back this time."
"Is it related to that Zhou Zhonghui?" Qin Yun asked before looking at his surroundings. There were many people here, so it was inconvenient for him to speak.
Lan Fengjin nodded and brought Qin Yun back to the arena's hall to borrow a room.
Inside the room, Lan Fengjin's expression turned even more solemn. Previously, she was not worried about the competition between Qin Yun and Zhou Zhonghui because even if Qin Yun could not defeat them, he could still escape.
But now, she didn't think that way anymore.
Qin Yun, Zhou Zhonghui's martial spirit is indeed a totem martial spirit. It gradually awakened after he was imprisoned in the dungeon. Lan Fengjin frowned with worry in her eyes. "Why don't you cancel the challenge?"
Qin Yun said with a smile, "Sister Lan, I also have totem martial arts. My totem martial arts might not lose to his!"
Lan Fengjin sighed, "But you have to be clear. Right now, the Blue Spirit Star Palace is very interested in Zhou Zhonghui. The reason they released Zhou Zhonghui is to let him challenge you! Blue Spirit Star Palace disciples have already suffered several times at your hands. If they don't have confidence now, they wouldn't let Zhou Zhonghui come!"
"The reason they sent Zhou Zhonghui to challenge you was not purely to get revenge on you, but to.... instead, they want Zhou Zhonghui to devour your totem!"
Qin Yun was alarmed. He himself had the idea of extracting Zhou Zhonghui's totem martial spirit. He never expected that the other party would possess such an extraordinary skill.
"Devour? How could he devour it? I'll just be a bit more on guard!" Qin Yun did not mind.
"This is impossible to guard against. There are many ancient texts about totems. If the two possessors of totem Martial Spirit's were to fight, then the loser's totem would leave on it's own and enter the winner's body."
Lan Fengjin shook her head, "This matter is not as simple as you think! He has a totem Martial Spirit but you don't. Even if you win, you won't be able to obtain his totem tattoo. But if you lose, the Heavenly Lion Totem that you are so proud of will be gone."
Qin Yun did not know about this. He, who was sitting on a chair, stood up and walked back and forth in the room with an extremely solemn expression.
"Since they are here for this, will they cheat? I'm more worried about that!" Qin Yun said, "If they were up to no good, I definitely wouldn't be able to beat them!"
Lan Fengjin replied, "You don't have to worry about that. Elder Du, the teachers and upper echelons of the Star Xuan Wu Academy are all on your side. If Zhou Zhonghui used cheat, he definitely wouldn't succeed. However, I still recommend that you temporarily not fight with Zhou Zhonghui. The Blue Spirit Star Palace is very eager to see Zhou Zhonghui obtain your totem."
Qin Yun laughed inwardly because he was also eager to obtain Zhou Zhonghui's totem martial spirit. It would be of immense help to him.
"Sister Lan, thank you for investigating these matters. I will definitely win! At that time, I will have to trouble you to take out several hundred million crystal coins to redeem me." Qin Yun said with a grin.
When Lan Fengjin saw Qin Yun's suddenly relaxed expression, she was extremely puzzled. She had thought that Qin Yun would be scared of the stage because of this.
"You damn brat, seeing how agitated you are... Are you sure you can win? "
Qin Yun said with a smile, "We did not go to the Divine Inscription Palace for nothing. That Energy Consolidating Spirit Pill was extremely helpful to me. Hehe.. Let's just wait and see!"
Lan Fengjin did not say anything further. She suddenly felt that Qin Yun had hidden a large portion of his strength, which was why he was so confident.
Qin Yun waited in this room for the sparring to begin while Lan Fengjin went to the arena's audience seating.
It was noon. Qin Yun had also heard the old man's shout from the arena. He was calling him and Zhou Zhonghui to come up on stage.
Qin Yun walked out of his room and entered the passageway that led to the arena. After he walked out, he saw that in the audience seating at the front of the arena, the vast majority of them were luxuriously dressed people with powerful auras.
As he walked up to the martial stage, he looked at the front row of the audience seating. There were many familiar faces, most of them from Blue Spirit Star Palace. Even Xiao Yanglong had come.
"Teacher Yang is here but YueLan isn't." Qin Yun felt a little helpless. If Xiao Yuelan came, he could try using her painting. He wanted to know if he could contact Xie Qirou.
When Zhuo Chuan learned of this matter, he immediately rushed over. Only he and Lan Fengjin knew that Qin Yun was a high-ranked Inscription Master and was extremely valuable. He did not wish to see Qin Yun destroyed.
Zhou Zhonghui had appeared!
All of the Blue Spirit Star Palace disciples in the audience suddenly began to shout in order to give Zhou Zhonghui a strong momentum.
Zhou Zhonghui was a relatively short man. His skin was terrifyingly white and his face was very thin and cold. There was a fierce light in his eyes and his murderous aura was menacing. He gave people an uncomfortable feeling.
Although he was wearing a set of luxurious tight blue clothes, he gave off the feeling of a ferocious beast wearing human skin.
Even Qin Yun, who had experienced great storms, could not help but feel a chill in his heart when he saw this person. He felt a tinge of fear.
Especially when the other party was staring at him with those fierce and cold eyes, his heart was beating wildly as if he was about to be eaten alive at any moment.
"This guy is too dangerous, he doesn't have any humanity left!" Qin Yun suddenly understood why Lan Fengjin wanted to make him withdraw from the battle. It was because Zhou Zhonghui was indeed terrifying.
Suddenly, Qin Yun recalled what the old men from Blue Spirit Star Palace had said. If a person had a totem and no totem soul, then they would likely be swallowed by the totem, turning them into madmen and becoming bloodthirsty.
He suspected that Zhou Zhonghui had once been controlled by a soulless totem. Now that totem soul has been awakened, he is barely normal but that brutality had been restrained and could erupt at any time.
"Blue Spirit Star Palace took a fancy to my totem and then released such a brutal person to fight for it? What a bunch of crazy things!" Qin Yun was secretly infuriated as he looked into Zhou Zhonghui's eyes.
He felt that the Zhou Zhonghui in front of him was extremely dangerous. He had the evil of humans and the brutality of magical beasts. The brutality was controlled by evil and it became even more terrifying.
"Qin Yun, after we compete, the fame and glory you gained will all belong to me. Also, Xiao Yuelan will be mine." The corner of Zhou Zhonghui's mouth curled up into an evil sneer. His eyes suddenly revealed an incomparably vicious and frightening light.
"My honor and reputation? I never cared about these things but you cared so much. I overestimated you before! Right, my most powerful aspect is the Dao of Inscription. You will never be able to step into this Dao." The other party was trying to infuriate him and he was infuriating the other one as well.
Zhou Zhonghui had a fierce look on his face the entire time but it was hard to tell if he was angry or not. He suddenly took out a thumb from his storage treasure!
Seeing the bloody finger, Qin Yun raised an eyebrow as he felt that it was somewhat familiar. It was Huo Zhong's!
An incomparable rage surged into his heart like a volcanic eruption!
"This is Huo Zhong's, that big idiot! I really don't understand, how did someone like him manage to enter the Beast Martial Palace, what a disgrace." Zhou Zhonghui had a vicious smile on his face: "That little Xue girl is not bad but she was also severely injured by me, so her life can be considered as ruined."
When Zhou Zhonghui saw Qin Yun's sunken expression, he smiled proudly and said, "That's right. The reason I came to the arena was for you! So, it was you who harmed your friends, causing your friend to be seriously injured and even destroying that beautiful woman's martial spirit!"
He laughed sinisterly and crushed Huo Zhong's fingers!
"Don't worry, after I defeat you, I will take good care of Xiao Yuelan. I want to ruthlessly ravage this arrogant little bitch that actually look down on me! Qin Yun, you will die miserably today. It's a pity that that bitch Xiao Yuelan didn't come and couldn't see your miserable state. Hahaha.."
Qin Yun clenched his fists tightly as they turned an azure color.
Gritting his teeth, the muscles on his face trembled. The Zhou Zhonghui in front of him was truly a devil.
The Blue Spirit Nangong elder was full of smiles as he stroked his beard. He said, "This child A Hui has a fiery temper but he is the strongest 9th realm martial body in our NanGong!"
An elder beside him said with a laugh, "If he can defeat Qin Yun, there's a high chance that he can step into the martial dao realm. It's rare to see such a young martial arts practitioner even in the Blue Spirit Star Palace."
"Hahaha, that's right! We are not as stupid as the East Palace. We all send outstanding seedlings into the Holy Palace. Look at the East Palace, they are the weakest." The elder said with a laugh, "Qin Yun is in trouble today. Even our Palace Master, Nangong, thinks highly of A Hui. He personally taught him for two months."
Once Zhou Zhonghui defeated Qin Yun, he would be a person with two totem tattoos. It was rare even in the Martial Desolate Realm!
