Star Martial God Technique Chapter 267: The seven divine envoys
The Imperial Institute covers a large area, about eighty percent of the Imperial Institute is made up of hills and dense woodland.
Ye XingHe pursued the aura straight into one of the dense woodland.
There are practically nobody out here, Ye XingHe vigilantly looked around because that aura is now very close to him.
A familiar scent entered his nose. He raised his head and he spotted a figure about 5 meters away from him. She’s Sword Eminence Ming Yu.
It’s clear she put a lot of effort into her appearance, she looked like she came out of a portrait and she sent a flirty look his way dressed in an exquisite purple dress. The collar area is unusually low, revealing her smoking hot figure. She also tied her hair up so she looked like a noble as she had an elegant wafting around her.
Her countenance would make almost any male who gazed upon her to kneel down in reverence.
Ye XingHe believes that Sword Eminence Ming Yu probably heard the rumors about how he’s in the capital. He’s wondering why she’s here to see him, surely it’s not something simple.
Sword Eminence Ming Yu sensed that Ye XingHe is just calmly looking at her without any distortion in his eyes. She dejectedly sighed but she didn’t make her disappointment apparent.
“I came after I obtained news of your appearance in the capital.”
Sword Eminence Ming Yu said.
“Well, why are you here for me?”
Ye XingHe asked. He wondered what identity she used to enter this place, did she come here on behalf of the Divine Sword Clan?
“Not in particular, no, I am just here to look at you.”
Sword Eminence Ming Yu giggled, she is also curious why she came here. As a Divine Sword Clan member, she’s supposed to clarify her non-relatedness to Ye XingHe, she could have just stayed away and be clear of this mess but she thought about it and she came anyway.
Ye XingHe’s gaze stayed on Sword Eminence Ming Yu’s face for a short time. He still can’t fathom why she’s here.
“Other than that, I also came to remind you that the emperor is up to a nefarious plan. The exact specific eludes me but with your present strength, it’s impossible for you to fight against the emperor, are you sure you want to stay in the capital?”
Sword Eminence Ming Yu eyed Ye XingHe.
“As a human, there are things you must not do and there are things you must do. I have something very important to do in the capital. I shall see to it that I don’t leave the capital before my work is done.”
Ye XingHe said.
Sword Eminence Ming Yu was rendered silent by Ye XingHe’s words. She finally realized what is so different between Ye XingHe and the venomous people in Divine Sword Clan, integrity. At the slightest hint of trouble, the people of her clan would first think about how to reap the maximum benefit while minimizing risk, other people are tools that can be used or disposed of at their convenience. She herself almost got sold out by her own brother.
Meanwhile, Ye XingHe will take on any challenge regardless of the peril it poses to himself, he thinks about how best to fulfill the responsibility that lays upon his shoulders.
“Ye XingHe, I still have a high position in the Divine Sword Clan, if there’s anything you need help with, just say it and I will do my best to complete the request.”
Sword Eminence Ming Yu promised in all seriousness.
Ye XingHe stopped and he asked her.
“Why? You’re a Divine Sword Clan member, why would you do that?!”
“Maybe I regained my lost kindness. You saved me so as a person who repays a favor, I owe you one favor. As for my clan, I never considered it my home, I live only for myself.”
Sword Eminence Ming Yu replied in a stern tone.
Ye XingHe saw her honesty and he believed her.
“Okay, then what is your Divine Sword Clan up to? How many experts do you have and who are the strongest people?”
Ye XingHe questioned her. His knowledge of the Divine Sword Clan is lacking so he needs to know more about them.
“Sword God Feng Yi is the strongest in this generation of Divine Sword Clan. To the public, he’s a peak ninth Heavenly Realm practitioner. But, considering his mastery of the way of the sword, normal peak ninth Heavenly Realm practitioners aren’t a challenge for Sword God Feng Yi. Not just that, there are 20 other ninth Heavenly Realm practitioners in the Divine Sword Clan. Moreover, there are more hidden experts in the clan, the 20 ninth Heavenly Realm experts are just publicly known individuals. Sword God Feng Yi has a bunch of other secret aides who are very powerful as well.”
Sword Eminence Ming Yu divulged everything without leaving anything behind.
Ye XingHe didn’t say anything. After witnessing Old Man Wu Xiang and Shang Guan Xuan’s power, he’s sure that peak ninth Heavenly Realm isn’t the apex for cultivators in this world. Maybe Sword God Feng Yi is also a Deva who is hiding his powers.
“Where is Divine Sword Clan main location? Is Sword God Feng Yi normally in the main location?”
Sword God Feng Yi is the emperor’s arms and legs, he might be the clue he needs to figure out where the Northern Lord is being confined at. Since Sword Eminence Ming Yu is right here, he might as well ask her.
“Divine Sword Clan’s main base is situated at the Southern side of the imperial palace, it’s outward appearance is that of a large manor. Sword God Feng Yi does not stay in the manor permanently. Most of the time, he’s outside and I have no idea what he does.”
Sword Eminence Ming Yu isn’t sure why he’s asking about all these but she answered them with all her knowledge.
Ye XingHe continued inquiring about the Divine Sword Clan, he also obtained a simple map of the imperial palace.
“Tell me you’re not planning on infiltrating the imperial palace? It’s way too dangerous, you must not do so!”
Sword Eminence Ming Yu said with a sense of disquiet.
“Anyone who tried infiltrating the imperial palace was never heard from ever again. Once, there was a coalition of multiple factions who sent several groups of ninth Heavenly Realm assassins into the palace to kill the emperor, they too have died without leaving a trace for anyone to discover. The strength of the emperor is inscrutable and he has his seven divine envoys backing him up.”
“What’s the background of these 7 divine envoys?”
Ye XingHe asked.
“I am not sure about that, I have only ever seen two of the seven divine envoys. One of them is named Tian Yun and the other one is Huo Yun, nicknames obviously but the other 5 divine envoys are just as big a mystery to me as they are to you. It’s said that each envoy can match our Divine Sword Clan’s strongest individual, Sword God Feng Yi in strength. I don’t know how the emperor enlisted these seven individuals.”
Sword Eminence Ming Yu answered. Speaking about the emperor always sent chills up her spine.
He is someone who really stood at the top, one word can send countless men to their deaths. Indeed, I estimate that countless numbering in the thousands has perished since he took charge. He even killed his own son and now he has his hands on his own grandchild. His heartless methods would chill the guts of anyone who heard his name.
Nobody knows what the emperor is scheming as he always hid behind proxies and would never show his thoughts or actions to the public. He guided everything from the dark. He also has an iron grip on the capital.
“Relax, I won’t barge into the imperial palace without due diligence.”
Ye XingHe is clear that he is too weak to do anything right now. Sword God Feng Yi, the seven divine envoys, and the emperor, any one of them is a dreadful existence that can end his life in absolute certainty. This is all not taking into consideration the tight security in place inside and outside of the imperial palace. There are probably a lot of experts guarding the palace.
