Chapter 1057: His Teacher intervenes
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
When Xue Ying faced the seemingly ordinary great hammer and the world-shaking scarlet palm, he could not help but feel his heart tightening. Those two moves were screaming threat in his heart. Previously, even though he was affected by the ‘Time Domain’ first, and suffered from the two opposing water-fire tenth level combined technique, he did not feel any threat at all.
But at this moment, he felt it.
These were the actual assassins.
‘It is the subordinate one of one of the five ancestors, ‘Drifter’, from the Myriad Realms Ancient Nation, Rain Dust Walker, and the other is one of the Hundred-Battle Devil Gods, Fan Chu Hu?’ Xue Ying could recognize the opponents. He even transmitted a call of help to his teacher: “Teacher, I am being assassinated.”
The surrounding space spanning across hundreds of millions of kilometers had already been isolated the moment the Time Domain came. Just like the battle that happened during the Blood Sacrifice in Ardent Fire City, the devils also completely isolated the entire place. These treasures that could seal off space were costly, and ordinary Cosmos Gods could not afford them. It was temporarily bestowed by the ‘Sky Sword King’ for this operation.
It was clear the assassins wanted to block off Xue Ying from escaping using the ‘Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique’.
Of course, Xue Ying left behind an avatar in the capital, and he would not die!
“Hong long long~”
The two horrifying moves came down at the same time. Even though Xue Ying wanted to defend himself using his spear techniques, his motion was affected by the decelerated flow of time; his movement was too slow. That great hammer easily evaded Xue Ying’s spear and penetrated through the three void maelstrom stairways rotating by Xue Ying’s body before smashing on his body. The Scarlet Cloud Combat Technique’s ‘defensive technique’ was continually suffering from the brunt of the fire-water killing moves, and was thus much weaker now.
Only about 30-40% of the total force coming from this seemingly ordinary hammer had been dissipated away before it smashed on Xue Ying’s body.
“Mn?” Rain Dust Walker felt that he was smashing onto the void, “Void-ification?”
Almost at the same time.
The large scarlet-bronze palm slapped down, causing the defensive maelstrom stairways to dissipate. The spear in Xue Ying’s hand was smashed away by the palm, deflecting it onto Xue Ying’s own body. Closely following that, a large palm came and let out a sound of boom…
The great hammer of Rain Dust Walker was as light as a feather, yet it brought upon a tremendous force that rushed into the body of Xue Ying and into his soul! Xue Ying’s body that was initially suffering much from the water-fire attack was then smashed once again by the dominating scarlet-bronze palm! Being a Hundred-Battle Devil God, ‘Fan Chu Hu’ was classified as an ultra expert who had his body altered, and wasn’t someone who relied on cultivation to reach where he was.
Hence, he was considered somewhat similar to a magic servant. Of course, he was still a cultivator and did not have to follow the orders of a master.
But his move was crude; it was only at the realm of eighth to ninth level standard. But it was extremely horrifying in its strength and speed, that they exceeded what ordinary Cosmos Gods could exert. In addition to that body of his, he was someone that specialized most in charging during battles.
After suffering from many assaults, Xue Ying felt his mind ringing.
“What! He did not die?”
“How could this be?”
His Highness Blaze Wind, Rain Dust Walker, Fan Chu Hu, the two water-fire emissaries, and those watching the battle in the dark–the black-robed expert and Thunder King Mo Chao were all incredibly shocked.
In their plan, they ascertained that this was a joint attack that should suffice in wiping out Xue Ying.
Under the Time Domain, Xue Ying’s speed would be reduced to a crawl, and he could practically not retaliate at all. He could only suffer from the full brunt of the move.
The water-fire joint attack was a combination of two tenth level moves. They were also drastically opposite, causing the resulting power when fused to surge. They had even guessed that Xue Ying would die shortly after suffering from this.
Nevertheless, the combined attacks by the Hundred-Battle Devil God, ‘Fan Chu Hu’ and Rain Dust Walker were more formidable. The two of them were famous for directly suppressing their opponents. From how they saw it, even if Xue Ying did not die previously, his body would be weak after suffering from damages. Hence, with their world-suppressing moves, Xue Ying would undoubtedly die.
“Hong long long~”
The street had already been affected by the battle that deep and huge gouges formed. There was currently a figure with his back bents standing within that gouge. He looked up–Xue Ying’s eyes were presently filled with fury.
Xue Ying felt both indignant and sullen.
It had been a long time since he felt so sullen. He was someone powerful, yet under the Time Domain, his speed was influenced so much that he could not defend himself from the enemies’ attacks.
The force kept rippling and reverberating in his body.
“Pu.” Xue Ying was forced to spurt out fresh blood. There were many injuries left on his body too.
Having the defending technique from Scarlet Cloud Combat Technique and the tenth level grand perfection Southern Cloud Sacred Body, it was likely that Xue Ying would lose his life under his joint attack. Fortunately, he had deduced the void-ification to an unfathomable level, transcending beyond all the void lineage insects had reached the pinnacle of Primal Chaos Realm. Xue Ying could even be comparable with his teacher Gu Qi already. Currently, he only lacked by just that final bit before reaching the true pinnacle in his void-ification.
With this capability of void-ification, Xue Ying could dissipate off the majority of the incoming force. Nevertheless, he was still injured in the end.
“Continuing killing. He is already heavily injured.”
All of them might be shocked at the failure of their joint attack, but they understood how precious time was.
His Highness Blaze Wind continued operating the Time Domain. The water-fire envoys were also keeping their combined attacks. As for Fan Chu Hu and Rain Dust Walker, they felt humiliation from the failure and were utterly furious now.
“Sky Rending Claws!” Fan Chu Hu roared. His two palms had turned into the shape of claws and had torn apart the world. This was a set of ruthless claw technique that was created by his master, the ‘Sky-Rending Great Paragon’, just for them, the Hundred-Battle Devil Gods.
“Dust returns to dust, dirt returns to dirt. Extinguish.” Rain Dust Walker was feeling furious. Being a cultivator under the sect of Drifter, he was proud too.
He sent his hammer out.
It arced through the void, producing a unique flute-like sound from the movement of the wind. There was some charm in this sound that would cause others to sleep, one that was eternal.
“Hong long long~”
The five great experts continued sending out their attacks. It continued for three rounds.
“It seems the aura on his body is still strong–it hasn’t been weakened severely. At least half his lifeforce remains. We do not have sufficient time. Hurry up and leave.” His Highness Blaze Wind who had been controlling the Time Domain all this while shouted out.
All of them might feel unwilling, though they did not hesitate.
“Sou sou sou.”
All of them disappeared from the place.
They were clear that the Southern Cloud King would definitely intervene and save his disciple when his disciple was in grave danger even though the king had a great status. The king could simply ‘wave’ his hand at the five of them, and they would be doomed. Under that circumstance, it would not be considered the ‘strong bullying the weak’. It was merely the king venting his anger.
And if they succeeded in escaping, and if the Southern Cloud King continued pursuing them, it would be too disgraceful.
The real apex cultivators in the Realm Heart Great Land were also bound by some unspoken rules. After all, every organization had an ultra-strong expert in it. For instance, the Myriad Realms Ancient Nation and Summer Wind Ancient Nation were much stronger than what the Southern Cloud King could exert! This was also because the various powers had apprehension over this, causing the unspoken rules to arise. If they were really bullying a small organization, it was fine to just sweep them away. How would they be qualified to talk to the Myriad Realms Ancient Nation and other similar organizations about the ‘unspoken rules’?
Those who were qualified to talk about these rules were already proud sons of heaven.
Naturally, the Southern Cloud King had to obey these rules too.
The shockwave from the battle blasted in all directions.
Many strands of light descended from the sky. This was light from the operating nation protecting arrays which the Fiery Zhao Capital had. They were able to withstand against those shockwaves.
“Cough, cough.” Xue Ying spat out more blood again. He flew out from the deep gouge and floated in midair while looking at his surroundings. The shockwave from the battle did not affect a considerable area. But it was still inevitable for several residences belonging to some cultivators to be destroyed.
“They dare to act in the capital without planning to hide their aura at all?” Xue Ying felt himself turning more furious as he saw what had happened.
He felt really sullen this time.
From the start to end, Xue Ying could not retaliate at all. Of course, everything happened too quickly too. Each of the assassins was a tenth level expert, and they only released three moves in total. How fast was that? Furthermore, Xue Ying was trapped in a Time Domain, making his reaction even slower.
“Xue Ying, you should return and take a rest first. This time, the Sky Sword Sect actually dispatched so many experts to deal against you. Very good. If I did not retaliate, I would be looked down upon.” The voice of Southern Cloud King sounded by the ears of Xue Ying at that moment–his voice was filled with rage.
“Teacher, I’ll naturally find them after a few days.” Xue Ying added.
“This you don’t have to care anymore. Just have a good rest.” Southern Cloud King was naturally prepared to handle things himself since he was able to position himself amongst the peak across the Realm Heart Great Land.
Just as the other party finished speaking, Xue Ying could feel an unseen aura leaving.
‘It seems teacher is going to act personally.’ Xue Ying thought. Facing the matter of the Sky Sword Sect advancing into the Fiery Zhao Nation, Xue Ying had always been the one dealing with it. It had been several hundred thousand years, yet the Southern Cloud King remained nonchalant as he watched things progress. Nevertheless, the moment the King suffered from a loss, he would definitely retaliate! Clearly, he felt that just his disciple alone was insufficient from dealing against the entire Sky Sword Sect.
