When Luo Yunyang completed a Star 9-Grade Collective Soul Array, the emissary from the Blue Rain Empire finally arrived to confer his t.i.tle.
Unlike Yunxi and the others, who had arrived formlessly and soundlessly, these people arrived in a triangular flying craft.
Although they didn't look that much different from humans, when they saw Luo Yunyang and the 10 Heaven-Grade source beasts, they held their heads high, as if they were unwilling to acknowledge them.
"Are you Luo Yunyang?" The special envoy who had come was a martialist who had just reached Planet 5-Grade. He was wearing silver clothes with quite some flair and looking at Luo Yunyang as though he was staring at a subordinate.
Luo Yunyang couldn't stand people who considered themselves superior. Although he wasn't pleased, he still smiled. "Yes, I am."
"Ha ha… You must be really lucky! How else would a small savage like you actually become a first-cla.s.s lord of the Blue Rain Empire with a feudal fiefdom!" The man eyed Luo Yunyang as he spoke haughtily. "You can call me Sir Long Kun."
The Ice Fire Divine Sparrow had a slightly frosty look in his eyes.
He was extremely displeased with this person's lofty att.i.tude. Although the Ice Fire Divine Sparrow was willing to lower his head before strong fighters, he couldn't stand people who were weaker than him, yet acted like they were superior.
His favorite way of dealing with this type of people was killing them.
However, now that a lordship was at stake, he had no choice but to lower his head.
Luo Yunyang wasn't very pleased either. As he watched the man who called himself Sir Long Kun, he said coldly, "I wonder what sort of t.i.tle you hold in the Blue Rain Empire, Sir Long Kun. Are you a baron, sir?"
The word 'baron' made Long Kun's expression change. If he were a baron, he definitely wouldn't have to take care of such worthless matters.
If he were a baron, he wouldn't have to run this sort of errands.
After all, although his job was to confer a t.i.tle, he was actually just delivering an official doc.u.ment.
"Luo Yunyang, you… How dare you actually speak to me this rudely! I could report your disrespect to the emperor right now! Your t.i.tle and everything else would be for naught if I just said the word."
Long Kun's smug expression reappeared as he pointed at Luo Yunyang and said, "You have been striving so hard for this t.i.tle so you can seek the protection of the Blue Rain Empire. Did you know that if your area hadn't already been absorbed by the Blue Rain Empire's territory, you and your kind would have already been sold off to some far-off place as slaves?"
Although Luo Yunyang only believed part of Long Kun's words, the Ice Fire Divine Sparrow and the other Heaven-Grade source beasts believed him entirely.
Their precursors had vanished from the Divine Beast Wasteland. Otherwise, it wouldn't have been their turn to become kings yet.
They had only agreed to follow Yunxi and risk their lives to avoid following into the footsteps of their precursors and getting taken away and treated as domestic livestock.
Luo Yunyang still hadn't said anything, when the Ice Fire Divine Sparrow walked forward and said, "Sir Long Kun, our Big Brother is a little too frank. Please don't mind him. We… We still need you to pa.s.s this decree. We also have a little something for you."
As he spoke, the Ice Fire Divine Sparrow felt his face burning. However, he had no other choice. He was the only one who could speak right now.
"At least this little sparrow has a sense of propriety. Let me tell you something. I have seen many people like you, who do not know when to advance or retreat. Do you know how these fellows end up? I'll tell you… They get dismissed and punished."
Long Kun took out a small bag and raised it. Then, he eyed Luo Yunyang and the others. "Kneel and accept this decree."
Although there was nothing wrong with his words, Luo Yunyang had already been taught some etiquette.
The Blue Rain Empire had always treated martialists as elites. Even a monarch of the Blue Rain Empire wouldn't ask a martialist to kneel.
Of course, martialists could kneel voluntarily if they wanted to.
A conferment of n.o.bility was the Blue Rain Empire's greatest acknowledgment of these martialists, so they naturally wouldn't be asked to kneel.
Ideas flickered through Luo Yunyang's mind as he stared at the haughty Long Kun. His gaze suddenly fell on the man.
"Look into my eyes!" he said extremely calmly. Long Kun, who had a dazed look in his eyes now, knelt onto the ground obediently. His palms unleashed a flurry of blows onto his own face.
"I'm not a person, I'm not a person, I…"
Luo Yunyang had a serene expression on his face as he looked through Long Kun's memories. Thanks to these memories, he learned about Long Kun's status, as well as his purpose for trying to intimidate them with his so-called might and powerful connections.
The reason he had done this wasn't just to raise his own status. He had also wanted to extort a great deal of stuff from Luo Yunyang and the 10 great Heaven-Grade source beasts. In his eyes, Luo Yunyang and these source beasts were like pigs he could hurt however and whenever he wanted to.
He had already laid out the groundwork to achieve his goal, which was to a.s.sert his dominance over Luo Yunyang and the others and make them feel that he wasn't someone they could offend.
Crystals, female slaves, even young and robust martial masters…

The Ice Fire Divine Sparrow and the other Heaven-Grade source beasts had never imagined that Luo Yunyang would actually dare act against the conferment emissary. They had already pined for this conferment for a long time, so now that this had happened right before their eyes, they were all left at a loss.
