Chapter 1012: Ecstasy
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Xue Ying was meditating calmly on a great floating stone with distorted spatial stream revolving around him.
With many precious bloodline-nourishing treasures provided by Old Mother Ying Shan and Marquis Ardent Fire, Xue Ying’s void bloodline that was originally diluted had become more concentrated. But it remained ‘thin’. Nevertheless, Xue Ying’s realm had reached a profound stage, and he was able to activate the hiding void bloodline in his body easily.
The void bloodline became activated on a deeper level. At that moment, it enabled a qualitative transformation across every single particle. They were changes happening within the structure of the particle. This happened when the cultivator upgraded from Origin Birth realm to the Unity realm. With this upgrade in the level of his body, it was natural for a phenomenon to be created where the surrounding world energy was frantically being absorbed. The Void God Pagoda was built for cultivation, yet a deep black hole in the form of a maelstrom had formed within. All the incoming world energy was then released from the black hole before ending up being absorbed into the body of Xue Ying.
After a moment later, his body broke through to the Unity realm.
‘I can start cultivating the “Southern Cloud Sacred Body”.’ Xue Ying revealed a look of ecstasy. The “Southern Cloud Sacred Body” was a body-cultivation technique accompanied by the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles”. Xue Ying did not dare to cultivate previously when he first trained in the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles” because he would have to step into the Unity realm immediately after that.
“Hua, hua, hua…”
Waving his hand, a pile of dark green soil was placed on the great stone in front of him.
Xue Ying began unleashing the Southern Cloud Sacred Body cultivation technique. The moment it was operated, this dark green soil began emitting green light spots that entered Xue Ying’s body…
This Southern Cloud Sacred Body was considered an apex body refining technique even in the six great ancient nations. The only flaw it had was its extravagance! To train in this technique, it was required for the cultivator to absorb many precious essences. The idea behind it was to treat the body like a ‘secret treasure weapon’ and refine it. It was comparatively easier to perfect a secret treasure weapon since the soul would be implicated when honing the body, making it vital for one to be careful when doing so. The required materials were much more demanding, and their value would naturally be more expensive.
‘Wait until I become stronger. By then, I can depend on myself to earn more cosmos crystals. Relying on Marquis Ardent Fire and Old Mother Ying Shan is not enough.’ Xue Ying understood this point. Marquis Ardent Fire was only an ordinary Primal Chaos giant, so how much treasures could he have? Old Mother Ying Shan had more riches, but how much could she earn after bestowing them to her descendants?
Ultimately, Xue Ying had to depend on himself.
Of course, it would be sufficient to rely on the help of Ying Shan Clan during the early stages. This was the benefit of being part of a clan. Those without a good background would have to risk their lives to earn sufficient resources. Without enough resources, cultivation would be a hundred to a thousand times harder, especially when cultivating those harsh systems like the ‘laws and profound mysteries system’.
Half a month later.
Xue Ying left the Void God Pagoda. He looked up, only to see the snowflakes floating down.
“It’s snowing?” Xue Ying felt startled.
“What!?” Tian Yi Zhi looked at their clan prince with shock. This handsome young man was currently emitting an aura that was shockingly at the Unity realm.
“Unity realm? It has been 8, 8,000 years? Just 8,000 years?” Tian Yi Zhi did not dare believe. To Void Gods, 8,000 years was merely a nap.
“It has been a while since I accompanied mother. Elder Tian, let’s go.” Xue Ying said.
“Ai.” Tian Yi Zhi hurriedly answered. The two Black Stream Cloud Wolves by the side were also in a daze, though they soon rushed up to Xue Ying.
The array that enveloped the huge Marquisdom also sensed Xue Ying’s aura, of which the array spirit reported this upwards to Marquis Ardent Fire.
Marquis Ardent Fire was enjoying wine by himself next to the lake.
The snowflakes were seen falling from the sky.
“Grandpa Marquis.” A girl politely said from the side.
“How is the matter regarding the secret treasure weapon?” Marquis Ardent Fire indifferently said, “He did not get scammed right?”
Previously, he was informed about how Xue Ying spent a total of 10 million cosmos crystals to buy a secret treasure. At that instant, he felt that Xue Ying was definitely cheated.
Only secret treasures qualified as upper graded would be worth above 10 million cosmos crystals!
What would a young fellow who was only 8,000 years old know about secret treasures? Marquis Ardent Fire was indignant at that moment. He felt that the other party had set a trap to scheme on Xue Ying because he had the cosmos crystals.
But knowing that it was a shop under the name of a disciple from the Celestial Yin Clan, ‘Celestial Yin Flowing Jade’, Marquis Ardent Fire was not in a rush to flare up. Instead, he dispatched someone to investigate the whole matter clearly.
The girl respectfully answered: “That weapon is a spear. It was discovered by several Unity experts 15 years ago when they were outside adventuring in an ancient remnant. They even fought and killed each other. In the end, they finally returned to the city and sold that spear to that shop owned by Celestial Yin Flowing Jade at three million cosmos crystals. At that time, the shop even suffered from assassination by other fellows, though they were fortunate to survive. At that time, our Ardent Fire Army had even dispatched soldiers out to capture them and interrogate what happened.”
Marquis Ardent Fire’s frown let off after hearing it.
The shops located in the Treasured Goods Market were all petty. For them to be willing to purchase this spear at three million cosmos crystals, and for Xue Ying to buy it at 10 million cosmos crystals, would not result in Xue Ying losing much.
As long as it was not a scheme, Marquis Ardent Fire would never intervene.
“The spear body is extraordinary. It’s a pity the spearhead is missing and added after that.” The girl said, “That is why it was sold at this price. Prince Xue Ying should not have suffered from a loss.”
“Mn.” Marquis Ardent Fire nodded.
“Also, we have investigated the identity of the guest with Pavilion Master Chun Yu Feng that had a conflict with Prince Xue Ying on the street.” The girl said, “He is called Qian Gan Xue and is not someone famous. He is just a person that commits shady businesses.”
Marquis Ardent Fire softly nodded.
The Misty Cloud Pavilion was the most significant money squandering establishment. It naturally conducted business transactions beyond the law.
“Continue observing him.” Marquis Ardent Fire coldly ordered. Being the person who wielded the greatest authority in Ardent Fire City, he would definitely send people to pay attention to experts that had some exceptional backgrounds.
“Yes.” The girl acknowledged.
Marquis Ardent Fire held onto his wine cup. He drank another cup before his expression changed.
“Master, Prince Ying Shan Xue Ying has broken through to the Unity realm.” A voice directly sounded by his ears.
Marquis Ardent Fire abruptly stood up, causing the girl beside to look with shock at her clan’s Grandpa Marquis.
“Unity realm? He entered the Unity realm?” Marquis Ardent Fire was both shocked and joyful. He excitedly murmured to himself, “It has only been 8,000 years yet he broke through to the Unity realm?”
That was a horrifying speed.
Under normal circumstances, those who were given birth to Origin Birth realm would have to spend 10 million years before they stepped into the Unity realm.
“Old Ancestor wasn’t wrong in her words.” The eyes of Marquis Ardent Fire lit up. He was ecstatic, “This Prince Xue Ying was forced into birth prematurely, yet his potential remains huge. It is entirely possible for more potential to be dug out from him! Bestowing him those bloodline-nourishing treasures is indeed the right choice! Even if Xue Ying remained in conception, he would remain in the mother’s womb for several hundred to thousands of years before coming out at the Unity realm. The difference now was that he spent just ten times the time to reach the Unity realm.”
Marquis Ardent Fire felt satisfied.
The number of people who were at the Unity realm during birth could be counted with one’s fingers in the history of Southern Cloud Nation. All of them easily broke through to the Primal Chaos realm! And two had even become Conferred Kings!
Even if Xue Ying was prematurely given birth, he reached the Unity realm in 8,000 years…
This period that was ten times longer did not matter much.
“Nevertheless, he is still slightly affected by the premature birth.” Marquis Ardent Fire could not help but beam, “But the impact isn’t huge. Hahaha, it seems that I will have another Primal Chaos expert in my Ardent Fire Marquisdom.”
Even though Xue Ying would definitely become a Conferred Marquis in the future and open a Marquisdom himself, his relationship with Marquis Ardent Fire would never change.
After all, Xue Ying belonged to the lineage of Marquis Ardent Fire! Strictly speaking, Marquis Ardent Fire was his grandpa!
“I must immediately report this to the Old Ancestor.” Marquis Ardent Fire hurriedly transmitted this news to Old Mother Ying Shan.
