Chapter 1033: Blood Sacrifice–Ardent Fire City
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
At dawn, outside Ardent Fire City.
Two figures were standing on the land looking distantly at the magnificent Ardent Fire City. Even though this city was considered small in the Southern Cloud Nation, it was still protected by the incarnation of a Cosmos God and several Primal Chaos giants. It was a city where many cultivators converged and occupied an area spanning across 50 billion kilometers. The number of cultivators living inside numbered in trillions.
“The cities under the Southern Cloud Nation are constructed quite extravagantly.” The thin green-haired old man looked at this city and apathetically chuckled, “What a pity that it’ll be turning into a dead city soon.”
“It is their fortune to be chosen as the city for Blood Sacrifice by our Black Devil Great Lake.” A pure and holy white-robed male smiled. His smile was vibrant, and it gave off a warm feeling. His eyes were even filled with a fatalistic inducement. It felt like he was the most beautiful thing in this world, that would turn the eyes of everyone else to him.
“White Cloud Devil Master, this time, we’ll have to trouble you.”
“Haha, this is a minor matter. Since religious master has given the order personally, I’ll naturally not neglect this mission.” The pure and holy white-robed male smiled.
“Mn.” The thin green-haired old man waved his hand.
Many experts appeared by the side. There were a total of 20 Primal Chaos giants and more than 10,000 Unity realm experts. Once an army numbered in tens of thousands, it would give off a feeling of suppression. These Unity realm experts were all wearing armor. Clearly, they were in a combat formation.
“Greetings, Old Ancestor. Greetings, White Cloud Devil Master.” The 20 Primal Chaos giants all respectfully greeted. Following that, the more than 10,000 Unity soldiers also greeted orderly. They were clear of the statuses these two people in front had–they were from the higher level within the religion. There was no need to mention the Old Ancestor since he was a Cosmos God. As for ‘White Cloud Devil Master’ who stood beside him, he was one of the many devil masters within the religion. Those who could be called ‘devil master’ were all at the Primal Chaos Realm tenth level and could fight against a Cosmos God.
Like on the Realm Heart Great Land, some of the tier three nations only had one Cosmos God guarding it. The Black Devil Great Lake could send a devil master, and that would be sufficient to destroy that nation.
The thin green-haired old man nodded, “The Blood Sacrifice this time will be led by you, White Cloud Devil Master. You must remember to perform splendidly during this Blood Sacrifice of the city belonging to Southern Cloud Nation to intimidate them and everyone else!”
“Yes.” Everyone answered confidently.
Even that black-horned muscular expert ‘Chen Niu’ was excited: ‘The Southern Cloud Nation is slightly stronger. It is paid more attention to by the Black Devil Great Lake. Unlike when we were destroying cities within the Fiery Zhao Nation where just one or two Primal Chaos giants was sent, this time, White Cloud Devil Master would be personally leading the legion with 20 other Primal Chaos giants. Five out of the 20 of us have already reached the ninth level! Very good, fabulous. We must ensure that the Ardent Fire City is powerless to resist and trample over them. Marquis Ardent Fire, I’ve been waiting for this day for far too long. Soon, my revenge will be taken! I truly desire to see the look of despair on your face!’
The pure and holy white-robed male nonchalantly ordered, “According to the intelligence, there are only two experts within the Ardent Fire City–Marquis Ardent Fire and the incarnation of Monarch Chun Yu.”
“Marquis Ardent Fire is at the Marquisdom, and the incarnation of Monarch Chun Yu is at the Southern Cloud Sacred Palace.
“Xue Fu, Chen Niu, the two of you shall lead the Primal Chaos giants and attack Marquis Ardent Fire. Kill him as fast as possible.”
“The remaining Primal Chaos giants will attack the incarnation of Monarch Chun Yu! Once any of you succeeded, you all should hurry and aid the other party.”
“As for the other Unity experts… scatter and wipe out the entire Ardent Fire City.”
“As for me, I’ll host the Blood Sacrifice.”
The pure and holy white-robed male said.
Given his high status, he was disdained of acting personally. According to logic, there was no need for such a strong legion to be dispatched in sending a city for Blood Sacrifice. This was primarily done to ‘display their strength’ and to make the surrounding four nations more obedient. It was also done to prevent any unforeseen circumstances from happening. That was why a devil master personally led the team. Clearly, the Black Devil Great Lake did not permit any accidents from happening.
“Yes.” Everyone present acknowledged in an orderly manner.
“Haha, then I’ll begin now?” The thin green-haired old man chuckled. That pure and holy white-robed male nodded too.
The thin green-haired old man flipped his hand, causing a picture scroll to appear. He waved it.
The picture scroll suddenly disappeared. When it appeared again, it had already transformed into a vast manuscript right above the Ardent Fire City. Furthermore, an unseen energy was released from it, engulfing the entire Ardent Fire City. Naturally, the thin green-haired old man and his subordinates were precisely located within it.
This was a spatial seal!
By relying on a secret treasure, the current Ardent Fire City had its space wholly sealed. Even the Destructive Realm Teleportation technique could not break through this seal.
The large picture scroll gradually disappeared into nothingness. This space where the Ardent Fire City was located in disappeared. From this moment on, the Ardent Fire City could not be seen, touched, or entered! The entire place was in another unique space entirely independent from the Realm Heart Great Land, somewhat similar to the cavern-dwelling of Monarch Nine Cloud–to which Sacred Master could not even find it.
And currently within the sealed space…
Just outside the city, the pure and holy white-robed male indifferently gave the order: “Begin the sacrifice.”
“Sou sou sou…”
Many teams began teleporting in, of which the strongest two Primal Chaos teams proceeded respectively to the Ardent Fire Marquisdom and Southern Cloud Sacred Palace.
Within the Southern Cloud Capital, inside the palace, there was a dimmed palace hall.
“Sou sou sou sou…”
Many figures rapidly appeared within this hall. After entering it, they sat.
Seated at the throne position was a thin male wearing a beige robe. His nose was straight, and his eyes were deep. Even though he was thin and small, his body felt like it had become one entity with the surrounding void. He was the void, and the void was him. As a result, he gave off an unseen suppression that caused other experts present at the scene to hold their breath. He was none other than the religious master of the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion, one of the top ten great religions in the entire Realm Heart Great Land.
The atmosphere present was quite oppressive. Everyone turned to the king.
The eyes of the Southern Cloud King were looking far away. Waving his hand, a complete circular projection floated in the air. It faintly reflected the endless time-space continuum, and soon, the scene of Ardent Fire City appeared within.
“That is the Blood Sacrifice of Black Devil Great Lake.”
The expressions of the three monarchs and five Conferred Kings present turned ugly. The five Conferred Kings who came… were all at the tenth level strength.
Old Mother Ying Shan spent most of her time stationed in the capital. At this moment, she was anxiously looking at the scene projected on the circular mirror. This circular mirror was known as the ‘Heaven Observation Mirror’ One could rely on it to observe any place across the entire Realm Heart Great Land. There were very few places that could evade being watched by this mirror. Even those sealed places where ultra-long distance teleportation could not reach could similarly be observed.
This was a precious secret treasure.
“King.” Old Mother Ying Shan immediately stood up and exclaimed anxiously, “This is the Ardent Fire City, my Ying Shan Clan’s Ardent Fire City. We absolutely must not watch…”
Southern Cloud King turned taciturn. His deep eyes merely stared at the Heaven Observation Mirror.
“My Ying Shan Clan disciple ‘, Ying Shan Xue Ying,’ is also in the Ardent Fire City. His talent is extremely huge, and it is certain that he’ll become a Conferred King.” Old Mother Ying Shan hurriedly added.
“And? What can we do?”
Southern Cloud King finally responded. His voice was solemn and cold, “Can we act? If I were to break the tacit understanding, that’d be equivalent to slapping the faces of the three religious masters of the Black Devil Great Lake! The three of them from the Black Devil Great Lake might just act after that, and by then, this will be a huge war that engulfs the entire Southern Cloud Nation. The number of deaths and injuries would be indeterminate.”
Old Mother Ying Shan did not respond at that moment.
She also understood it.
Even though the Southern Cloud King had governed the entire Southern Cloud Nation well, allowing it to flourish the entire Realm Heart Great Land was still based entirely on the theory of strength being prime! The three religious masters of the ‘Black Devil Great Lake’ were all huge devils that brought disasters across the entire Realm Heart Great Land. Even the six great ancient nations could not get rid of them. As for the Black Devil Four Nations, they were covered in their shadows!
Comparatively speaking, the Southern Cloud Nation was in the best condition.
Fiery Zhao Nation had the most occurrences of being attacked. Of course, the Black Devil Great Lake would not ‘kill the goose that lay the golden eggs’. Naturally, the Cosmos Gods from Fiery Zhao Nation did not dare resist.
As for the Snow Hook Nation, that was a nation that dared to compete directly with the six great ancient nations. The king had an explosive temper too, and would similarly dare to risk it all with the Black Devil Great Lake. Nevertheless, the faces of the six great ancient nations and the Black Devil Great Lake were not fun to slap. Hence, the Snow Hook Nation had suffered from several huge calamities in its history. Nevertheless, the Black Devil Great Lake similarly felt their heads aching because the bones of the Snow Hook Nation were not easy to be gnawed. Hence, they would not usually act, but the moment they did so, they would ruthlessly give Snow Hook Nation a severe lesson.
As for the Maple Nest Nation, it was closest to the Summer Wind Ancient Nation. In reality, it had already decided to rely on the Summer Wind Ancient Nation, and with the protection from the ancient nation, it was in a much better condition. Even though it was rare for the Black Devil Great Lake to bring disaster to the Maple Nest Nation, it still occurred.
The Black Devil Great Lake was not afraid of the Summer Wind Ancient Nation. They even dared to cause trouble to the Summer Wind Ancient Nation.
Only the ‘Southern Cloud Nation’ was being affected the least since Southern Cloud King himself was strong, and had befriended many other experts across the world. In the dark, he similarly made friends with the three religious masters from Black Devil Great Lake! But no matter what, the Black Devil Great Lake would still hold a Blood Sacrifice occasionally, and they would only choose some of the smaller cities within the Southern Cloud Nation.
This was the hidden rule.
Both parties were abiding by it too! When the Black Devil Great Lake had its reputation protected, the Southern Cloud Nation could similarly maintain its overall stability and prosperity.
“But, but…” Old Mother Ying Shan looked at the mirror floating in the air, watching as to how there was a pure and holy white-robed male sitting cross-legged in front of a floating black bottle. Old Mother Ying Shan was able to recognize him with a glance that this was a devil master existence from the Black Devil Great Lake–White Cloud Devil Master, “But the disciples of my Ying Shan Clan, and that Little Fellow Xue Ying, he…”
Old Mother Ying Shan felt her heart aching.
Other than the ancestral family, the Ying Shan Clan had a total of six branches. One of them was located here at the Ardent Fire City! So many Ying Shan clan disciples and that outstanding Little Fellow Xue Ying…
‘Why would this be? Why?’ Old Mother Ying Shan felt angry and agonized. She truly wanted to kill her way over.
But she knew…
That with the spatial seal present, she could not find Ardent Fire City at all! There was only one existence across the entire Southern Cloud Nation who had the strength to enter–Southern Cloud King when he utilized the ‘Great Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique’. But it was impossible for the Southern Cloud King to lose all decorum with the three religious masters from Black Devil Great Lake because of this matter.
‘Damn, damn.’ The eyes of the Southern Cloud King remained deep and calm. It seemed as if this event was just a small rising wave in the vast sea. Nevertheless, in reality, he was keeping the anger in himself.
The city of his subordinate.
They were currently being massacred and sent for a Blood Sacrifice.
How could he not be angry?
It’s just that… at times, he had to endure! When facing the Black Devil Great Lake, he had to endure! When facing the six great ancient nations, he also had to endure!
