Chapter 263 Rumors


Xuanyuan left quickly.

Yin Qianxun was the first one to realize what had happened.

“What? How can you do this?” Yin Qianxun angrily looked at Yin Zhenluo and growled, “Second sister, I am very disappointed in you. Even though Xuanyuan is your apprentice, how can he be the one to save our father? He is alone in that vast crowd, with numerous enemies. Where do you want him to go, anyways? After all, he is  very close to you. This time, the Fighting Dragons Sect is fighting for the sake of the Five Xians., i If he returns to the sect, Jiang Yitian will be waiting for him. The elders of the Fighting Dragons Sect might also not welcome him.” 

“Shut up, little brother.” Yin Tianshang immediately stopped his brother, as he was extremely fond of Yin Zhenluo. 

“Why should I stop? How can you be so selfish, disregarding others’ lives? If Xuanyuan saves our father, then he will be the great benefactor of our Yin family. I can ignore the fact that you sent someone to kill Xuanyuan before. But now, in order to save our father, his heart was penetrated by the dragon insect. How can our second sister let him go, and not keep him here? What’s wrong with me saying this to her? How can you take her side on this? Well, if such is the path of the Yin family, then I shall leave.” Yin Qianxun tossed his sleeve, and chased after Xuanyuan.

Yin Tuxian frowned, but did not stop Yin Qianxun. He looked at Yin Zhenluo and sighed.

“Qianxun is just like this. He always acts willfully and impulsively. Well, I guess he’ll just have to learn things the hard way.”  

Yin Zhenluo didn’t say anything in response. Yin Qianxun was upright by nature, and was not as gloomy as his eldest brother, Yin Tianshang, which was why she prefered Yin Qianxun. 

Yin Tianshang loved her, but sometimes he would go too far; his blind self-righteousness often made Yin Zhenluo feel very uncomfortable. 

The case of Xuanyuan was the best example. “He consumed the second commitment of the Nightmare Fairy, and asked it to seal and suppress the heart-eating dragon insect for him. But the power of the Nightmare Fairy could only extend his lifespan by a few more years. I am deeply sorry for what happened to Xuanyuan. I felt restless, thinking that he would be bitten by the heart-eating dragon bug day and night, and die of pain.” Yin Tuxian wore a gloomy expression on his face. He waved and said, “You all leave. I need some quiet. As for Xuanyuan, if we, the Yin’s family, meet him, and he needs anything, then you must help him with all of your strength.”

“Yes!” This time, the elders of the Yin family agreed very happily. As long as Yin Tuxian was okay, their goal would be achieved. They didn’t care whether Xuanyuan lived or died. It wasn’t like they were responsible for him.   

It had occurred to them that Xuanyuan was very young, dazzling, and qualified. Some of them even thought that Xuanyuan would be a good match for Yin Zhenluo. If the two were to end up together, the Yin family would have another rare talent. But when they heard that Xuanyuan was attacked by the dragon insect, they completely dismissed this idea, as it wasn’t worth it. Xuanyuan was not far from death.   

For Xuanyuan, their attitudes were either sneering, sympathy, sadness, sighing, guilt, or indifference.   

Seeing that dozens of Yin’s elders had all left, Yin Zhenluo saluted Yin Tuxian and said,: “Dad, since you have recovered, I should go.” Yin Tuxian frowned.

“Where are you going?” 

“I’m going to find a way to get rid of the heartworm.” Yin Zhenluo was extremely firm, and he walked to the gate of the lobby. 

“Little sister, just give up. Since we found out it was a heart eating dragon bug, much manpower and material resources of the Yin family have been spent trying to find a way to drive it out, but there is no one who can do anything about it. You’ve been near to death several times in Beizhou, and almost fell down. Now, where will you go?” Although Yin Tianshang was sympathetic toward Xuanyuan, there was no reason to let his little sister risk her life for him. 

“Elder brother, let me go. I’m an adult. I have my own discretion in what I want to do. Stop thinking of me as a child,will you?” Yin Tianshang’s gloating made her feel powerless.

Hearing Yin Zhenluo’s words, Yin Tianshang was a little lost. These kinds of words were quite similar to what Xuanyuan said. He stagnated for a moment. Yin Tianshang then smiled bitterly.: “Well, if you want to do it, then do it.”   

Yin Zhenluo nodded and stepped out of the Yin mansion.  

Not long after the elders of Yin’s family quit the Tuxiantang, they received the news about Xuanyuan in the Hai family. 

“What? Did Xuanyuan really cure Yin Tuxian?” 

“It’s absolutely true. Xuanyuan used a method that can introduce the heart eating dragon insect into his own heart, which saved Yin Tuxian’s life, though it greatly reduced Xuanyuan’s lifespan.” 

One of the elders laughed bitterly. “Are you serious? Xuanyuan really is terrifying. The body of five elements has five elements of spirit, and the peak of grandmaster has the power of 9500 flying dragons. If he had grown up without any accidents, he would be a great emperor today. We’re lucky that he took in the bug”.” 

“Now that Xuanyuan has left Yin’s house, shall we send someone to kill him?” 

The elder laughed again. “No need. What better way to die than to be tortured and killed by the heart eating dragon insect? The Fighting Dragons Sect might still attach great importance to Xuanyuan as well. If we were to make a rash move, then we would only suffer more losses. Doesn’t Jiang Yitian still have a fight scheduled with Xuanyuan in a year? Let them kill each other!” 

“Our host is really smart. Xuanyuan dared to use the power of the Nightmare Ghost Fairy to seriously hurt Hai Ya, and caused heavy loss to our Hai family. What he did was a big crime. I wish I could kill him myself.” 

“There’s an order to take care of Hai Ya. Although he’s seriously injured, he has been cured with immortal medicine. It won’t hurt. There’s nothing other people can do. What we need to do now is just watch what happens.” 

“Wait a minute. Yin Tuxian is very wise, so how could he let it slip to those people that Xuanyuan absorbed the dragon insect? Do you think it is a trap?” 

“You mean that Yin Tuxian said this deliberately, so that we will leave Xuanyuan alone?”


“That’s right; you’re right. Please confirm whether he really is dying. Then we will know the truth. Please figure it out from them.”   

One day later.

“There are seven stars in the East, and the heart moon fox is surrounded by ghost gas and black gas. It’s cloudy out. There are angry dragons rolling and eating the heart, and Xuanyuan only has four years and three months left to live. There’s no falsehood in this matter.” 

“Ha ha, that’s true. It seems that Yin Tuxian doesn’t attach much importance to Xuanyuan. Otherwise, he would have kept him here, and let Zhenluo marry him. I suppose that’s the reason? What’s the use of someone who doesn’t have much time to live, no matter how brilliant or talented they may be? ” 

“Well, in this way, everything can be explained. I’m afraid that Xuanyuan won’t be taken seriously after the Fighting Dragons Sect hears the news.” 

“Ha ha, it must be so. If we just wait, he will eventually become like a lost dog, running around everywhere. When he’s gone, the five elements scatter, and then we’ll have our chance.” 

“Do you think the Fighting Dragons Sect will use their great powers to put Xuanyuan under house arrest, wait until he dies, and collect the five elements?” 

“Hum, don’t worry. Remember that the five elements are invisible. When Xuanyuan dies, they will be scattered between the heavens and the earth for a moment. They can’t obtain it unless they find a place where they can completely ban the five elements. You need to know that Xuanyuan has the five elements. Did you see it that day? The five elements converged into the shape of an Immortal Emperor. Obviously, the five elements are interlinked.” 

“The host is really thoughtful!”   

The news of Xuanyuan being pierced in the heart by a dragon insect has been widely spread; everyone in Dongzhou knows about it.

“I didn’t expect such a rising star to fall again. The ancients really didn’t deceive me. As the ancient sages said, it’s far too rebellious for Xuanyuan to accept the five elements as he was a five element body. It’s said that the peak of Douzong has the power of 9500 flying dragons. If he doesn’t die, there will be another figure of the great emperor.”


“Since ancient times, people like Xuanyuan have not been rare, but a large number of them died at a young age. Obviously, Xuanyuan is unlucky.” 

“I said that it was he who wanted to die. He was cheated by the Yin family. Now the leader of the Yin family has been saved, but he  doesn’t have much time left. The Yin family saw his life was not long, so they didn’t keep him there. Otherwise, with Xuanyuan’s qualifications, many people would try to get at him!” 

“It’s true. How pitiful Xuanyuan is. He is merely a pawn to the Yin family, one they have now tossed away. Where do you think he will go now?” 

“I think he will go back to the Fighting Dragons Sect. He still has his fight with Jiang Yitian.” 

“Xuanyuan is also a poor man, but this way of death is too cruel. He was so brave and domineering to the Hai family that day. If he were to die then, he would have died with honor. I don’t think anyone in any family would dare offend him now.” 

“What? He’s going to die now. What else does he have to be arrogant about? ” 

“It’s said that he still has the one last promise from the Nightmare Ghost Fairy. If anyone dares to hurt him, he will use his last promise to kill us all. Which force can bear the loss?”  

Upon hearing this, many people immediately fell into silence, especially those who once wanted to kill Xuanyuan; they now all hoped that Xuanyuan would not lose his mind and come to kill them. They just wanted to wait for Xuanyuan’s  life to run its course. The Hai family really was unfortunate. No one would dare risk the lives of so many people.
