Chapter 1018: Madness
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
The black-robed devil master gritted his teeth. His eyes were ice-cold. Seeing how anxious the incarnation of Marquis Ardent Fire was, he was sure the other party would definitely be deranged if they succeeded in killing that young child.
‘Someone who is able to dissolve the poisonous fluid secretly and protect Ying Shan Xue Ying? This expert is formidable. Or could it be someone who knows how to curb this poisonous fluid?’ Many thoughts flashed through the mind of the black-robed devil master, ‘I should go according to the initial plan first.’
“Ah Da, move out.”
The black-robed devil master gave his orders behind the scene.
He coldly looked to the distance. Even though he gave Qian Gan Xue the mission to plan, he had never placed all hopes on Qian Gan Xue before. He even personally prepared a final trump card for this mission.
‘Let me see who exactly is the one protecting him.’ The black-robed devil master gave a cold chuckle, ‘It is impossible for Marquis Ardent Fire’s true body to reach in time. Let me see who else is there in Ardent Fire City that could obstruct my magic servant?’
And in the carriage floating in midair, Ying Shan Lie Hu was trembling slightly. Tian Yi Zhi who retreated to the side even transmitted a message to Xue Ying in anxiety: “Prince, this poisonous fluid is very frightening. If the Hidden Guards could not resist against the poison, I’ll immediately keep you into my Eden Treasure and try escaping from the assassins. I’ll try my best to escape for as long as I could, and hopefully, Old Mother Ying Shan would have dispatched an expert over. In a while, you must not resist–”
As he was transmitting his voice, Tian Yi Zhi suddenly looked with shock into the distance.
Not just him.
All the Hidden Guards and protectors had come to a realization that they would be going all out at the risk of their lives for their prince! Even though they had their own loved ones whom they were concerned of, and thus did not wish to die, they chose to join Marquis Ardent Fire ultimately and had obtained great support in terms of resources from the Marquis! Encountering such dangerous situations was a rare thing for them too.
Hence, when the time came, they had to stand out! Those who dared run would definitely face the wrath of the Ying Shan Clan,
The atmosphere on the battlefield soon turned dismal and exasperated at the same time. Every one gritted their teeth as they watched the insipid green sound ripple of poisonous fluid fly rapidly over.
“Let us fight with our lives!”
“My obedient daughter, I no longer will be able to accompany you any longer.” These Hidden Guards were fighting with Old Devil Nian Jiu while paying close notice to the poisonous fluid at the same time. Nevertheless, the poisonous fluid suddenly appeared by the side of Qian Gan Xue, causing Qian Gan Xue to die instantaneously.
“Why would it…”
All present who just escaped from the clutches of death was soon filled with ecstasy and disbelief.
The incarnation of Marquis Ardent Fire was also looking at the scene with disbelief. As Xue Ying controlled the minute spatial distortions merely over at the regions where the poisonous fluid existed at and not over at the side where the incarnation of Marquis Ardent Fire was, the other party did not discover anything strange.
“Hahaha, my son, an expert is actually protecting you in the dark! I never knew so many experts exist in my Ying Shan Clan!” Ying Shan Lie Hu shouted in glee after seeing that.
“Yes, another mysterious expert is protecting us!” Tian Yi Zhi was feeling excited too.
“We have an expert behind our backs!” All Hidden Guards and protectors present felt their fighting spirit reignite.
Xue Ying also revealed a surprised look: “Such a formidable expert. I wonder who he is.”
No other choice.
Someone who was only five million years old yet could display strength at the God Yuan Palace eighth level? After all, just that domain technique had reached the eighth level. This completely transcended beyond the category of ‘genius’. If this was revealed, Xue Ying was worried it might attract the attention of some horrifying old fellows in the Realm Heart Great Land. Xue Ying suspected that he was not the only one who reincarnated in this place.
Thus, it was better to be prudent.
This distorted void technique was like a passageway. Space was originally straight. Xue Ying merely distorted this passage and linked it to another passage. As the poisonous fluid entered the passage, it naturally went according to the newly bent passage into the interconnected passage.
The same logic.
Since the surrounding void was distorted by Xue Ying, proceeding forward from here would naturally lead the traveler into another location. It might seem like teleportation, yet in reality, this was entirely different! Teleportation relied on the transmission of spatial fluctuations. And this was terraforming the structure of space. This technique was extremely formidable. Xue Ying might have just learned it, yet it was already a move at the Primal Chaos level.
Naturally, it was due to his vast experience. Xue Ying had reached the Primal Chaos realm in the Dao of Void in the laws and profound mysteries system. Furthermore, his wisdom was still present. That was why he could comprehend this technique quickly from the incomplete secret treasure weapon, the spear body.
Others might have a difficult time trying to comprehend this technique even if he was an expert that relied on his void bloodline to cultivate to the Primal Chaos realm.
Naturally, Xue Ying did not become arrogant. He only became more respectful of the refiner for this spear body.
‘What I comprehended is merely the tip of an iceberg. Furthermore, the spear body is not the complete secret treasure either.’ Xue Ying thought, ‘I really wonder who the original owner of this spear body is.’
Saying it was slow, though the words spoken in Xue Ying’s heart happened in the blink of an eye.
All the protectors in the vicinity including the incarnation of Marquis Ardent Fire felt delighted. And right at this moment–
A pavilion not too far away exploded. A humanoid being turned into a stream of light as it rushed over. It had kept its previous aura completely, and others could not perceive it at all. But now when it released its aura, it easily formed the strongest presence in the battlefield–even stronger than the combined aura from the Hidden Guards. It was even stronger than Old Devil Nian Jiu when he used his combined technique.
It had a pair of legs that were connected via reverse joints, and two long arms akin to those of apes. It was completely covered in scales and only had a single azure eye.
“Nian Jiu, team up with my magic servant to kill that Prince Xue Ying. Once the matter ends, the remaining 12 million cosmos crystals will be forked out by me.” A voice transmission was sent to Old Devil Nian Jiu.
“Hahaha…” Old Devil Nian Jiu was in great joy. Only then did he understand that it was this huge devil behind Qian Gan Xue’s back.
“Palace Master, please feel rest assured.” Old Devil Nian Jiu’s fighting spirit shot to the sky. Being a relatively famous assassin from within the Black Devil Great Lake, he naturally knew this huge devil. Even though the gap between their statuses was huge, he was not afraid of the other party since he had his avatar technique.
The expression of Marquis Ardent Fire’s incarnation shifted considerably. He saw that humanoid creature rushing over.
“Magic Servant Chao Qing?” Marquis Ardent Fire was able to recognize the other party immediately.
With a frenzied charge by this magic servant, it was able to produce an impact far beyond what Old Devil Nian Jiu could. With it working together with Old Devil Nian Jiu, they had practically blasted apart the combat array formed by the Hidden Guards. The Hidden Guards flew in all directions as they could not hinder them at all.
Not just Old Devil Nian Jiu or the Magic Servant Chao Qing. They did not chase after the Hidden Guards. They only had a single target–that Prince Xue Ying!
“Magic Servant Chao Qing? He is really willing to pay the price.” The incarnation of Marquis Ardent Fire was rushing forward in madness.
The magic servant growled and blast out with its claw. The nearby void exploded, and the incarnation of Marquis Ardent Fire shattered apart. At that moment, the eyes of Marquis Ardent Fire’s incarnation were still filled with unwillingness and indignance. They were also filled with apology towards ‘Xue Ying who could not retaliate at all’.
“Xue Ying ah, it is I, Marquis Ardent Fire, who is useless.” Marquis Ardent Fire felt really sorrowful at that moment.
The Magic Servant Chao Qing and six avatars of Old Devil Nian Jiu rushed forward at the same time.
Xue Ying remained calm as he sat on the carriage holding onto the spear: Magic servant? According to the records, it should be the Magic Servant ‘Chao Qing’ right?’
The accomplishments of puppetry refinements in the Realm Heart Great Land were much more profound.
Magic Servant Chao Qing was a puppet made from fleshy lifeform. It was utmost loyal and devoted to its owner. Being a puppet, if the owner wanted it to die, it would kill itself. Magic Servant Chao Qing was considered one of the lower leveled fleshy life puppet at the Primal Chaos realm. It could already be massed-produced by some powerful Cosmos Gods and were sold outside.
Magic Servant Chao Qing had a God Yuan Palace sixth level strength during regular occasions. When it burnt the accumulated energy inside its body, it would be able to erupt with a God Yuan Palace seventh level strength! But whenever it exploded with its power, it would suffer from significant injuries. After that, it would require to consume some precious treasures to regain its energy. Furthermore, it could even self-detonated with power several times greater!
Because it was ultimately a magic servant, it lacked in terms of the realm, though it specialized more in pure offensive strength. Magic Servant Chao Qing working together with Old Devil Nian Jiu were able to break through the obstruction by the Hidden Guards immediately.
“Prince, you should run first. I’ll block them.” Tian Yi Zhi and the nine personal guards had already arranged themselves into a combat array.
“My son, my son, quickly escape! I, I’ll fight with him too!” Ying Shan Lie Hu’s eyes were filled with madness.
Xue Ying was slightly startled as he looked at the appearance of his father.
He never had good feelings for this father of his, yet this moment made him shocked!
But how could he understand the thinking of Ying Shan Lie Hu? Ying Shan Lie Hu was indeed angry and mad at this moment, yet he was the second son of Marquis Ardent Fire. When Marquis Ardent Fire had him, the other party was still weak, resulting in a weaker bloodline in Ying Shan Lie Hu’s body. He once tried his best to cultivate, yet it was hard for him to improve any further, resulting in despair. That was why he instead chose to immerse himself in enjoyment.
Marquis Ardent Fire had even arranged a marriage for him which he accepted with a laugh. That wife of his, ‘Chan Yu Yan Zhen’ had inserted her people right from the beginning to control the resources under his name. How could he not know? But he still accepted it with a laugh.
He was too lazy to care about many things, and would rather enjoy his life. Even though he had many women, and had 300 over children, he never cared about them either. Only with this child that was powerful and had high talent which led him to pay greater attention to. In his heart, he hoped for this child to rise up and dazzle the world.
Over so many years…
Even though he, Ying Shan Lie Hu, led a befuddled existence outside, he understood that many aristocratic clan disciples looked down on him! Because he was too weak and was only a True God. If not for the son of Marquis Ardent Fire, he would remain a commoner.
He had always been looked down by others.
And then the fateful day came. His son Xue Ying was birthed. His birth shocked the entire world! Marquis Ardent Fire and Old Mother Ying Shan immediately paid close attention to Xue Ying.
Countless people were shocked across the entire Ardent Fire City. From henceforth, nobody dared to look at Ying Shan Lie Hu with disrespect. This feeling of respect was something he, Ying Shan Lie Hu, liked. Even though he felt that his son disliked him a lot, and did not even give him any cosmos crystals before, he did not mind.
“I, Ying Shan Lie Hu, has a son called Ying Shan Xue Ying! I can die but my son must not!” Ying Shan Lie Hu seemed crazy at that moment.
Xue Ying sat there.
He looked as Old Devil Nian Jiu and Magic Servant Chao Qing charged over in streams of light.
The gaze of Xue Ying turned cold.
The surrounding void suddenly distorted. It was a scene of an apocalypse. This distorted void naturally encompassed everyone present in the battlefield, including Magic Servant Chao Qing and the six avatars of Old Devil Nian Jiu.
