Qin Yun burned the note and bid farewell to Du Gui. Then, he hurriedly left the Star Xuan Wu Academy and went outside.
Because the small island that the Star Xuan Wu Academy was on was the safest, there were many inns, hotels and other buildings on the small island, forming a city.
Qin Yun made enquiries and found the Northern Star Inn. It was a relatively small inn and there were not many people. He entered the inn, found room 20 and knocked on the door.
Very quickly, someone opened the door.
When the door opened, Qin Yun saw a graceful woman dressed in a black dress looking dignified and noble. It was Xiao Xuanqin.
"Auntie Xiao!" Qin Yun revealed a row of pure-white teeth and said with a laugh.
"Un, come in quickly!" Xiao XuanQin smiled and said.
Just as Qin Yun entered and sat down, Xiao Xuanqin served him a cup of tea and tied her long hair around her chest. She looked charming and refreshing.
"Auntie Xiao, long time no see. You must have stepped into the Martial Dao Realm!" Qin Yun asked.
"This is all thanks to you. If I didn't deal with the problem of my Martial Spirit, I wouldn't even know when I would break through."
"Thank you again!" Xiao XuanQin laughed like a delicate flower, revealing her pure white teeth, she was extremely beautiful.
Qin Yun looked at the mature and elegant beauty in front of him and could not help but feel a jolt in his heart. He immediately lowered his head to drink his tea.
"Aunty Xiao, you said that you have something important to attend to and that you want to make a trip to the Tian Xiao Imperial Tomb. What exactly is it?" Qin Yun stood up and went to the window to look out at the street.
"I suspect that there is a secret related to our Xiao family in the Tian Xiao Imperial Tomb! Don't you think it's strange that the aptitudes of our Xiao family's disciples are all extremely good?" As Xiao Xuan Qin spoke, she took out a zither and lightly stroked the zither, playing a tune.
Qin Yun turned around and looked at the zither. He was slightly alarmed because some of the strings had not been touched by fingertips. Instead, they vibrated as they produced sounds. Xiao Xuanqin was using her mental power to play.
"It's indeed strange!" Qin Yun said.
"To be honest, I feel that our Xiao family has quite a deep relationship with the Blue Spirit Star Palace. Otherwise, Xiao Yanglong wouldn't have such prestige in the Blue Spirit Star Palace. There must be someone in the Blue Spirit Star Palace who has taken a fancy to him. As the crown prince, he must know some secrets that we do not know about."
Xiao Xuanqin strummed her zither and lightly smiled. "As a descendant of the Xiao family, I actually want to enter the ancestral tomb. I wonder if I will receive retribution."
"I thought you were a very old-fashioned person." Qin Yun laughed, "Did you catch air from YueMei after staying together for so long?"
Xiao Xuan Qin laughed and laughed heartily: "It might be so! This little girl is in the Divine Inscription Palace, she goes crazy from time to time but luckily she didn't cause any big trouble."
"It's really strange that YueMei didn't follow you!" Qin Yun smiled. "Anyone can be absent from this matter. Only a girl like her would not be absent."
"She's in seclusion! I only came to discuss it with you when she started. I am worried that if she were to enter the Tian Xiao Imperial Tomb, she would cause a ruckus." Xiao Xuanqin continued: "Originally, I had also gone to find YueLan but she didn't have the time for me, so she just asked you to come with me. That's right, Xie Wufeng also said that he had no time to go, it seems like only the two of us can go."
"Okay, when do we move?" He also wanted to investigate the reason why the Xiao family's bloodline was so powerful.
Xiao YueLan and Xiao YueMei originally had the inheritance of the Immortal Graveyard Diagram and adding to the Xiao family's mysterious bloodline, they became even more powerful.
Xiao Lang, Xiao Yanglong, Xiao Xuanqin and the others, also had outstanding talents. It could be seen that this was all because their bloodline was very strong.
"Let's go now, shall we?" Xiao Xuanqin said: "The sooner the better."
"Alright, it's up to you!" Qin Yun nodded.
Xiao Xuanqin changed into a light black nightgown and tied up her hair. She said to Qin Yun, "I've made you wait for a long time. Let's go!"
At night, Qin Yun and Xiao Xuanqin flew above the Myriad Star Lake and headed for the Tian Xiao Empire.
When Qin Yun flew past the Myriad Star Lake and looked at the lake's surface, he couldn't help but think of Xie Qirou in the crystal palace below. Just what kind of secret was this mysterious and beautiful woman hiding?
Xiao Xuanqin was a Martial Dao Realm cultivator, so she was not too worried about Qin Yun following her. Even if they met a Spirit Beast, they would be fine given their strength.
"Qin Yun, are you absolutely confident in challenging Xiao Yanglong?" Xiao Xuanqin asked.
"No!" When Qin Yun thought of this matter, his heart turned heavy.
"You must have confidence in yourself. I believe that you will definitely be able to beat him!" Xiao Xuanqin smiled at Qin Yun, her beautiful eyes brimming with encouragement.
Qin Yun said, "Many people think that I can't win against him. Why do you think that I can?"
Xiao XuanQin laughed: "You are a Soul Refiner and just by this point, I believe that you can become strong! It took you two years to become this strong. This is simply a miracle."
"If I don't reach the Martial Dao Realm within a year, I might not be able to defeat Xiao Yanglong." Qin Yun was somewhat worried about this matter. When he stepped into the Martial Dao Realm, there were no pills that could help him increase his cultivation.
He could only rely on himself, slowly accumulate and slowly find his own path and walk his own path of martial arts!
"Don't be discouraged, this kind of thing is hard to say! It does not mean that it will take a long time before you enter the Martial Dao Realm. Sometimes, when you suddenly comprehend your own martial dao, your Vajra inner core will awaken and your inner force will be enhanced, helping you step onto the road of martial dao." Xiao Xuan Qin said.
Qin Yun nodded and memorized the words in his heart.
Not long after, they flew out of the Myriad Star Lake and landed on the ground.
"You have to follow me closely. If something happens to you, YueLan will never be finished with me." Xiao Xuanqin smiled playfully as she exhorted Qin Yun.
"I feel that YueLan is overprotective of me, making me lose my dignity!" Qin Yun said with a wry smile.
Xiao Xuanqin couldn't help but laugh: "Isn't that a good thing? For you to be able to be cared for by such a strong woman is your ability. Many people would not even think about it."
Qin Yun and Xiao Xuanqin travelled through the night as they traversed the surface of the ground. By the time dawn arrived, they had entered the Tian Xiao Empire's territory.
Xiao Xuanqin brought Qin Yun into a forest. After resting for two hours, they continued on their journey.
The Tian Xiao Imperial Tomb was built in a large mountain area outside the city.
They only took half a day to reach the location of the Tian Xiao Imperial Tomb.
"There used to be a lot of tree spirits here but now there's none." Xiao Xuanqin stood outside the mountain and said with a frown: "Such a desolate place must have been destroyed by the magical beast horde. I wonder if there is a magical beast horde inside."
Qin Yun said, "We should be more careful when we enter. It's best if we do so at night. It's already middle of the day and the magical beasts are at their most active."
"Alright, let's wait here until it's dark." Xiao Xuanqin looked at the small mountain in front of her and said: "We will dig a cave in that small mountain and hide inside it. It will be safer this way."
They walked over and quickly dug a cave to rest inside.
It was getting dark and the wind was blowing harder outside, blowing up a large amount of sand and dust, causing the mountain ahead of them to be shrouded in sand and dust.
Qin Yun and Xiao Xuanqin carefully walked in the sand. They were extremely vigilant as they need to use their mental power to scout the surroundings. If there were magical beasts in the vicinity, they would immediately discover them.
After entering the desolate mountain, the dust had lessened and the ground was littered with the footprints of magical beasts.
"I really didn't expect that there would be so many magical beasts here. It seems that there should be a horde of magical beasts." Qin Yun sensed the auras in his surroundings and looked at the gigantic mountain that was thousands of meters tall. He said, "Is the Tian Xiao Imperial Tomb at the foot of the mountain?"
"Hm. There are more than a hundred mountains here and they are also very spacious. The magical beasts wouldn't choose to live on that mountain, right?" Xiao Xuanqin was also a little worried. If they faced a few magical beasts, they would not be able to handle them.
"Let's go over and take a look!" Qin Yun used Shadow Force to conceal his aura.
Xiao Xuanqin suddenly could not see Qin Yun and could not help but feel alarmed. She shouted lightly, "Qin Yun, where are you? Why did you suddenly disappear?"
Qin Yun suddenly pulled her jade-like hand and said with a smile, "I have an ability to hide in the darkness. Let me try and see if I can transmit this power to you and allow you to blend in with the darkness."
Xiao Xuanqin tightly grasped Qin Yun's hand. She had been extremely worried that Qin Yun would have an accident!
Qin Yun could feel a trace of warmth from her soft and jade-like hand. He was also secretly surprised that Xiao Xuanqin had been preparing the Internal Supreme Force all this time.
He whispered, "Auntie Xiao, relax your entire body!"
After Xiao Xuanqin relaxed, she suddenly felt a cool sensation coming from Qin Yun's palm. It entered her arm and quickly spread throughout her body.
Not long after, she discovered that her body had merged with the darkness and her aura couldn't be released. She was shrouded by that strange cool energy.
"Hehe, I succeeded!" Qin Yun said with a smile, "Now, we won't be discovered by the magical beasts."
"This kind of power is really amazing!" Xiao Xuanqin sighed in admiration before pulling Qin Yun by the hand as they slowly ascended a mountain.
As Xiao Xuanqin held Qin Yun's hand, she could not help but have a strange feeling in her heart. She did not know why she had such a feeling but it made her feel somewhat apprehensive....
(TL NOTE : YO YO AUNT!!! HE IS YOUR NIECE'S HUSBAND!!!)
On the other hand, Qin Yun was fine. He only felt that Xiao XuanQin's grip was getting stronger and stronger.
After they had climbed a few hills, they suddenly stopped.
"There are magical beasts!" Xiao XuanQin suddenly said in a low voice, looking at the valley between the two mountains in front of her.
"Yeah, I sensed it too." Qin Yun whispered.
"Hold on tight, I'm worried that your Shadow Force will suddenly disappear." Xiao Xuanqin was not grabbing onto Qin Yun's hand. Instead, she was clenching her fingers tightly against Qin Yun's.
This handshake caused Xiao Xuanqin's heart to beat even faster.
"Auntie Xiao, let's go!" Only after hearing Qin Yun's voice did Xiao Xuanqin recover from her shock.
Xiao Xuanqin secretly pursed her lips and stopped daydreaming. She pulled Qin Yun into the valley. As long as they passed through the valley, they would be able to reach the tallest mountain.
