Chapter 248 Stay Behind Forcefully
Yi Tianyun knew that Netherworld Empire would only enslave them if they chose to join and would be forced to give up the Xuan Tian Divine Art for the sake of the empire!
“Are you speaking on behalf of Heaven’s Top Mansion?” Minister Lin Hao said coldly.
“Yes, I am the Mansion Lord of Heaven’s Top Mansion!” Yi Tianyun said casually.
“You already a Mansion Lord at such a young age? Well, this would be your loss, not ours!” Minister Lin Hao said indifferently.
Yi Tianyun nodded to Minister Lin Hao as he didn’t care what the Minister was thinking at the moment.
“As that is the final faction, if you choose to decline the offer, you are free to go! For those who accepted the offer, you would have to stay for a few more days for briefing.” Minister Lin Hao said coldly.
White Lotus Mansion and other factions which declined the offer prepared to return to their respective factions, Yi Tianyun followed suit behind them all.
As he turned around, Minister Lin Hao suddenly stopped Heaven’s Top Mansion.
White Lotus Mansion’s Mansion Lord and Star Pavilion’s Pavilion Lord Li were looking at Yi Tianyun pitifully.
They hated to see a big faction like Netherworld Empire abused their power like this, but sadly, they couldn’t save Yi Tianyun.
“This is really sad! A bright young man like him would be eaten alive inside the Netherworld Empire.” Pavilion Lord Li said while shaking his head.
“Yes, it is painful to watch!” Elder Yun said while also shaking his head.
When Yu Shiqian left with the White Lotus Mansion, she couldn’t help but look at Yi Tianyun with a sad expression.
She didn’t know who Yi Tianyun was, but she couldn’t help but had this familiar feeling every time she looked at Yi Tianyun.
She couldn’t help but think that she had a hallucination about Yi Tianyun somewhere.
“Grandpa, what would happen to us?” Mu Xian’er said as she was afraid of what the Netherworld Empire would do.
“I don’t know, Xian’er. We should trust that Mansion Lord will protect us from harm!” The Great Elder said comfortingly.
He knew that things wouldn’t be easy for them soon enough, but he still tried to comfort his lovely grandchild!
The Great Elder knew that if Yi Tianyun wasn’t there for Heaven’s Top Mansion, they would’ve become the Netherworld Empire’s dog from a long time ago!
So, he decided to put his faith to Yi Tianyun!
“It is okay! You will be saved as long as I am here.” Yi Tianyun said confidently.
Mu Xian’er looks at Yi Tianyun with a grateful look, she looked at Yi Tianyun with so much respect now.
He was no longer the new disciple that would be her target of pranks, now he was the Great Mansion Lord of Heaven’s Top Mansion.
“Heaven’s Top Mansion, do you know why I have to make you stay here?” Minister Lin Hao said coldly.
“Well, it probably has something to do with the Xuan Tian Divine Art.” Yi Tianyun said casually.
Everyone who stayed was shocked to hear Yi Tianyun’s word.
They knew that Xuan Tian Divine Art was a powerful martial art that already reached Heaven Level!
If Yi Tianyun really had this Xuan Tian Divine Art, they understood the urgency of Netherworld Empire to force it out from a low-level faction like Heaven’s Top Mansion.
“You are pretty smart for a boy. Now that you already knew, surrender the Xuan Tian Divine Art immediately or die!” Minister Lin Hao said solemnly.
“What guarantee can you give that we will survive after giving you the Xuan Tian Divine Art? Furthermore, why would I give you something like that for free?” Yi Tianyun said challengingly.
“Then you should die now! I can search the rest of your people one by one with the Soul Searching Technique later anyway!” Minister Lin Hao said coldly.
As he finished speaking, three shadow guards quickly appeared around Yi Tianyun.
“If this is how you want to play things, then it is fine for me.” Yi Tianyun said casually.
