Chapter 7 - The Battle of the Princes
"Qin Yun, if you are really a fourth level Martial Body cultivator, you will definitely become a student of the Hua Ling Wu Academy!" Even though Yang Shiyue's voice was cold, it was very pleasant to hear.
"When you release your inner qi, the most obvious characteristic of a person in the fourth level of the Martial Body is that his inner qi is like a fluorescent light."
Qin Yun nodded. After taking a deep breath, he began circulating his inner Qi. Then, he opened his palm and forced his inner Qi out.
Everyone stared at his palm and saw a wisp of translucent mist slowly appearing like a grass bud.
Seeing this firefly like mist, everyone immediately burst out in laughter.
"What is this? The qi that I can fart out is even stronger than this. "
"With this much inner qi, I might as well go home and train for another ten to eight years."
"He needs to cultivate in order to be at the fourth level of the Martial Body Stage. Does he have inner energy?"
Everyone jeered, laughed, and taunted.
Qin Yun turned a deaf ear to their taunts. His eyes were filled with sincerity as he looked at Yang Shiyue and said, "Teacher, I've only formed my elemental energy this morning. I'm still not familiar with the control of my elemental energy and inner energy."
After the empress heard the jeers from the crowd, she let out a sigh of relief and sneered, "This is only a little bit of inner Qi that you forced out. You have not yet stepped into the fourth level of the Martial Body realm and have no chance of breaking through. Don't embarrass yourself!"
"Teacher Yang has yet to come to a conclusion, why are you in such a hurry?" Teacher Yang is a martial artist at the ninth level of the martial body at such a young age. This is authority! Are you as strong as Teacher Yang? Are you as beautiful as Teacher Yang? "
"No!" Teacher Yang's toes are even better than your face! " Qin Yun was fearless as he mocked the Queen without restraint.
A woman dreaded having someone say that she was not as beautiful as the other. As for Qin Yun, he had belittled the Empress's looks in front of everyone.
As expected, the empress's eyes twitched in anger and her body trembled slightly.
She clenched her fists tightly, clenching her jade-like teeth and digging her nails into her flesh. Her eyes were filled with a sinister light as she roared in her heart!
She swore to make Qin Yun live a life worse than death!
The crowd did not doubt Qin Yun's words. The Queen was indeed not as beautiful as Teacher Yang Shiyue, so they remained silent.
Qin Yun looked at the silent crowd and said with a sneer, "Did you see that? Everyone agrees that Teacher Yang is prettier than you!"
Everyone immediately began cursing Qin Yun in their hearts. They did not admit it.
Yang Shiyue frowned as her enchanting eyes narrowed slightly. She stared at Qin Yun with alluring eyes.
Of course, she could tell what level Qin Yun's inner Qi was at. It had indeed reached the fourth level of the Martial Body Stage. However, she was not too sure.
Just as everyone had thought, Qin Yun only had the First Sun Spiritual Pulse. It would be difficult for him to reach the fourth level of the Martial Body realm in a short period of time.
"Give me your hand." Yang Shiyue softly said.
Qin Yun acknowledged it and extended his hand.
Yang Shiyue used two delicate fingers to tap lightly on Qin Yun's wrist's pulse. She could sense his elemental energy through his pulse!
After sensing the inner qi, she exclaimed, "You do have an inner qi in your dantian! "You only have a One Yang Spiritual Pulse, but you can cultivate Inner Yuan. This is truly rare!"
Qin Yun had truly stepped into the fourth level of the Martial Body Realm!
When everyone heard Yang Shiyue's words, they were extremely shocked and burst into an uproar as they began to discuss in low voices!
The youths who had mocked Qin Yun earlier felt a burning pain on their faces. It was as though they had been slapped in the face.
The empress's expression turned even uglier! That was because Qin Yun would be able to enter the Hua Ling Wu Academy and escape her control of the imperial palace!
"Teacher Yang... You must think carefully! Qin Yun's previous Grand Preceptor was a demoness who cultivated demonic arts. She might have secretly passed on demonic arts to him, which was why his progress soared. "
"The Hua Ling Martial Arts School inherits righteous and honorable martial arts. Everyone admires them. Don't ruin your reputation because of this."
"Teacher Yang, please leave the calamity, Qin Yun, to us. We guarantee that we will not harm his life. We will only cripple his elemental energy and spirit veins!"
The old officials came over one after the other. Their sinister, old faces were filled with false worry as they exhorted Yang Shiyue with a look of righteousness not to accept Qin Yun.
When Qin Yun saw how the old officials had made him unforgivable, he immediately boiled over with anger. He cursed loudly, "In the past five years, I've gone through a lot of trouble to achieve success in my cultivation, yet you bunch of evil old dogs want me to die, crippling my elemental essence and spirit veins. You truly are a bunch of heartless old bastards."
"You … How dare you scold us old servants who have served the nation with all our might, take him down! " An old official bellowed.
Just as a few armored men walked over, Yang Shiyue hurriedly stood up and walked to Qin Yun's side.
"I can naturally tell if Qin Yun cultivates demonic arts or not. He passed my test and is a student of the Hua Ling Wu Academy." Yang Shiyue's cold voice was filled with authority. It was evident that she was going to decide on Qin Yun's student!
When the Queen saw Yang Shiyue protecting Qin Yun, she frowned slightly and said, "Qin Yun only has a One Sun Spiritual Pulse, but he cultivated elemental energy. He must have cultivated an evil demonic art in order to advance by leaps and bounds! In the Tian Qin Empire, all those who cultivate the Demonic Arts are to be executed without delay. "
She insisted that Qin Yun cultivated demonic arts!
"Bitch, shut up!" My original five suns spirit vein talent was hard to come by! "It was because a lowly maid like you joined hands with these wicked old dogs to murder me and the Grand Preceptor and roughly took away my four spirit veins!"
"One of the spirit veins was successfully fused with your son!"
"The spirit veins were bestowed by the heavens, but they were forcefully taken away by you. Even the Devil Dao may not be able to accomplish such a thing, but you fake "righteous and morally upright" bastards have actually done it! "
Qin Yun pointed at the Queen and the group of old officials as he channeled his strength and shouted loudly. His angry voice echoed throughout the square.
The Queen and the old officials were so infuriated that they revealed sinister looks. Their eyes were filled with killing intent as they wished they could kill Qin Yun on the spot.
At that moment, the fourth prince, Qin Tianyi, walked in front of Qin Yun and shouted, "Back then, you used the crown prince's authority to shield the female Grand Preceptor. That was why she mastered her demonic arts and harmed my Heavenly Qin Empire. For you to commit such a heinous crime, it is our kindness to let you live until now! "
"Your spirit vein is pushing my royal brother to attain the Six Yang spirit vein, so this spirit vein will definitely flourish in my royal brother's body. You shouldn't hold any grudges in your heart!"
When the old officials heard this, they began to praise Qin Tianyi for his words.
"Haha …" Stealing a person's spirit veins is a heartless thing, you actually dare to say such righteous words, truly shameless! Just tell your royal brother for me. Let him wait and I will get my spirit vein back from him! " Qin Yun's angry laughter suddenly turned extremely cold. He said, "I will definitely take back the person who snatched my spirit vein tenfold!"
Qin Tianyi sneered: "Because of such luck, you have been able to enter the fourth level of the Martial Body realm. But what can you do? You only have one Yang Spiritual Pulse, and you're destined to be a cripple in the Martial Dao. My royal brother has the Six Yang Spirit Vein, and he's the Crown Prince of the Empire! A cripple like you, what right do you have to get a spirit vein from my royal brother? He was overestimating himself!
"The reason why I was injured by you in the Spiritual Pills Pavilion was because you took advantage of the fact that I was caught unprepared to launch a sneak attack. That was my negligence!"
Qin Tianyi's face revealed a hint of anger as he shouted at Qin Yun, "Do you dare to duel me fair and square today? You can't even beat me, so don't dream of defeating my royal brother! "
Qin Yun clenched his fists and said with a deep voice, "Let's fight. Why wouldn't I dare!"
