Chapter 1014: Graceful Rain by the Lakeside

For the sake of surviving, the plump male ‘Qian Gan Xue’ began preparing for the assassination. He did not even care about how much cosmos crystals it took. He purchased poison and even invited the killers from ‘Dark Devil Great Lake’… Qian Gan Xue even prepared multiple backup plans, but what stunned him was…
That little prince Xue Ying from Ardent Fire Marquisdom actually remained in his residence after purchasing that secret treasure spear!
“I do not believe it!”
“He is just a young fellow who was given birth not long ago. Hence, with his heart temperament, how could it be possible for him to calm his heart down to cultivate for so long? He will definitely come out.” Qian Gan Xue anxiously awaited.
Ten years, hundred years, thousand years, 10,000 years, 100,000 years…
Qian Gan Xue fell in a daze.
The ‘master’ behind him was similarly shocked. Because in their opinion, even if one had a more precious bloodline, the heart temperament would still have to be tempered through multiple occasions. Only then was it possible for the other party to cultivate in closed-door across a million years or longer. Who would have thought this young fellow could enclose himself for so long?
“Master, he, he isn’t coming out. What should we do?” Qian Gan Xue reported to his master in a panic.
“Wait! Unless your patience can’t even be compared to a young fellow?”
Qian Gan Xue also let out a breath of relief.
His master was sensible and did not force him to assassinate Xue Ying within the Marquisdom. After all, the array security within was strict, and his master would fail the assassination even if he went personally.
Marquis Ardent Fire and Mother Rong Xing Lan both persuaded Xue Ying that cultivating the heart was important, and there was no need to bury one’s head into cultivating for a long period. Xue Ying might have acknowledged them using words, but in reality, he continued ‘cultivating like a madman’, entering closed-door cultivation for several hundred thousand years to a million years. After exiting for a few days, he would return back to cultivating.
He had no choice.
Xue Ying was ultimately not a young fellow. His true spirit reincarnated into this body, and his heart realm had reached the ‘My Heart as the World’. Furthermore, he was even a great expert that created two ninth level techniques within the laws and profound mysteries system that was known to be tough! With his current heart temperament, it was quite simple to enter closed-door cultivation for 10 billion years in one ago. As for tempering his heart?
Unless he needed another entanglement with love? Or some inconsolable heartbreak to temper his heart temperament?
Xue Ying was not in that mood to stay idle! Many other cultivators did likewise, and so he could similarly act like he was mad for cultivation.
In the blink of an eye, it had been five million years.
Ardent Fire Marquisdom, within the residence of Prince Xue Ying.
The Void God Pagoda’s door opened.
A white-robed handsome young man came out. Fine rain drizzled across the world, though when this young man came out, the rain made way a foot away from his body.
Many of the protectors and servants standing guard outside greeted respectfully. The entire residence soon became bustling. Tian Yi Zhi, the two Black Stream Cloud Wolves, and nine personal guards all rushed over. As they came, Xue Ying had already reached one of the nearby lakes.
Beside a lake was a pavilion.
A praying mat was placed within this pavilion. Xue Ying sat there cross-legged. The female servant Yan Yu had respectfully placed a wine flask on the table while warming it up. She looked curiously at her house prince: ‘Prince has an extraordinary birth, though I’ve never seen him like any girls or see him visiting the Misty Cloud Pavilion for fun. He treats everyone equally, and is always cultivating.’
‘No wonder. No wonder some cultivators are so powerful that it feels otherworldly. My birth cannot compare with the prince, yet I only wanted to enjoy life. Prince is so diligent.’ Yan Yu thought.
Xue Ying extended his right hand. A spear appeared in it. It was placed horizontally on his legs. Being a secret treasure weapon, just the murderous aura inherent within the spearhead made the heart of Yan Yu stopped momentarily.
An unseen ripple extended out from this spear body. It was like throwing a piece of rock into a calm lake, causing ripples to spread outwards.
The ripples spread out from the spear body were subtle. They easily permeated in the surrounding void. The void was under the total control of Xue Ying. As the distant Tian Yi Zhi, Black Stream Cloud Wolves and personal guards rushed over–Tian Yi Zhi was even an expert at the God Yuan Palace fifth level strength, he could teleport and had a keen perception on the void, yet he did not discover the surrounding void being controlled by someone.
Xue Ying sat there cross-legged. It felt like a spider controlling the spiderweb. All void near Xue Ying was under his control, and sections of void around him started distorting and changing.
The distortions and transformations were all subtle.
Even if it occurred so close to the cultivator, it was hard for him to perceive it unless his body interacted with the web.
“Hua hua hua~”
Countless rain droplets began moving gracefully.
Many tiny distorted spatial pockets transferred the rain droplets into an area several kilometers away, before moving them to another location. The water droplets were teleported away because of the distortion of the void. Furthermore, as the rain droplets were teleported, a seamless connection remained between them as if it was still raining.
“Prince.” Tian Yi Zhi, the two Black Stream Cloud Wolves, and the nine personal guards arrived by the side of the pavilion. Xue Ying controlled the void to open a path for them, which as a result, Tian Yi Zhi and the others did not feel any difference despite the web being so close.
Such minute control was something even other Primal Chaos giants would feel startled about.
Xue Ying continued drinking his wine.
At the same time, he was controlling the void distortions. The more he commanded it, the more satisfied he got: ‘I am so glad that I bought this spear.’
During the past five million years…
Xue Ying was also single-mindedly cultivating. Because the Dao of Void in the two origin worlds was relatively similar, speaking from the laws and profound mysteries system, Xue Ying’s Dao of Void had already reached the Primal Chaos realm not too long ago! As for the bloodline breakthrough, Xue Ying had even entered the Primal Chaos realm at an earlier period. It was only that such speed would shock the entire world. Even a genius should cultivate with speed classified under an ‘ordinary category’.
Even though Xue Ying was stuck at the Unity realm on the surface, his research and comprehension of the Void did not stop. Over time as his realm deepened, he began researching on this spear.
Exploring the spear body of this spear was just like observing a black maelstrom stair that was distorted. It continued deeper and deeper, and every level was an intersection of different kinds of the void. Ever since Xue Ying started cultivating this Dao, he realized that his body was like the core of this maelstrom, and it was possible for him to influence the surrounding crisscrossing void.
And that was the technique which this spear body had.
Even though the spearhead was lacking, causing part of the profound mysteries inherent within this secret treasure to be lost, it was sufficient for Xue Ying.
With his solid experience, he was able to comprehend some domain control technique. Once he had done so, the technique was qualified to be a ‘God Yuan Palace seventh level technique’. More importantly, if Xue Ying relied on the spear body to employ this technique, even though he had not comprehended many of the profound mysteries, making it taxing for him to use the technique, Xue Ying’s strength would nevertheless explode and allow the technique to reach ‘God Yuan Palace eighth level’.
A domain technique at the eighth level.
‘More importantly, the technique inherent within this spear body is at the Cosmos God level. Right now, I have merely understood a piece of it.’ Xue Ying felt satisfied because the void technique inherent within this spear body was of a different direction with the “Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles”.
‘It’s a pity I lack the spearhead, making it much harder for me to comprehend this technique.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly.
Within the Void God Pagoda, he could utilize the wild side of this domain all he wanted.
But now that he was within the pavilion by the lake, Xue Ying was only employing the most subtle side of this domain–stealthily permeating into his surroundings.
‘The Realm Heart Great Land has a foundation much stronger than that of the primal chaos void. Over there, the Dao of Void only had Monarch Nine Cloud, Void Primogenitor and the mysterious Myriad Realm Tavern Master’s lineage that are considered as formidable. Yet in the Realm Heart Great Land, in my Southern Cloud Nation, I’d interacted with two horrifying techniques left behind by experts.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly.
One was created by the Southern Cloud King, and the other was a spear refined by an expert of the Dao of Void.
Xue Ying’s heart moved.
The domain completely dissipated. All the rain remained gracefully falling just like before, and the nearby Tian Yi Zhi, the female servant Yan Yu, and all the protectors did not discover anything amiss at all.
Xue Ying was not worried about being discovered. Even Marquis Ardent Fire had to rely on his own law domain to perceive this technique. Otherwise, with the control Marquis Ardent Fire had of the void, it was impossible for him to sense it from such a considerable distance. Strictly speaking, Xue Ying was no longer weaker than the great expert Marquis Ardent Fire.
Only when both parties fought would the victor be decided.
