Chapter 1061: Earning a Huge Sum of Money
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
A huge magic dragon coiled in midair. That pair of eyes which was as clear as lake cast its gaze across a huge area. It was currently in glee. In the past, it spent most of its time as a domesticated animal responsible only for pulling the carriages for His Highness Southern Cloud King. Notwithstanding, as it followed its new owner, Xue Ying, it could enjoy this magnificent view from the top!
Xue Ying sat cross-legged on the vast back of the magic dragon. He pondered: ‘There exist Primal Chaos experts who are stronger than me in the Realm Heart Great Land, though it is impossible for them to exist in the Sky Sword Sect! Furthermore, those stronger than me in the same realm could only defeat me and not kill me.’ Xue Ying was filled with confidence. His strength and the fact that he had reached the pinnacle of Primal Chaos Realm in the Mirage and Illusory Realm meant that his soul was equally strong.
‘If we continued fighting, the Sky Sword Sect would likely admit defeat sooner or later.’
‘I wonder… how much could Thunder King Mo Chao be redeemed for.’ Xue Ying thought. He wanted to rely on this to buy some Mirage and Illusory Realm treasures!
Even though it was likely that his teacher Southern Cloud King would lend him this sum of money if he asked.
Xue Ying was not a ‘shameless’ person, asking for one thing before requesting for another again. The Southern Cloud King would only become furious from it. The ‘Five Phase Beads’ was given willingly by his teacher, and that was considered a huge favor already–the ‘Five Phase Beads’ was worth around 20 million cosmos crystals. This was because the Five Phase Beads had been refined a long time ago, and the Southern Cloud King did not have anyone to bestow it to. That was why he gave it to Xue Ying. Since Xue Ying had gotten such a huge gift, he dared not ‘open his mouth like a lion’.
With a thought, Xue Ying sent his consciousness down into one of the Five Phase Beads where Thunder King Mo Chao was locked in.
This was a sealed world. Being a top-graded secret treasure, it was extremely stable. Most Cosmos Gods would not be able to escape from it either.
The violet-robed male Mo Chao sat cross-legged in the void looking around him. It was a piece of sealed space.
Mo Chao’s eyes were filled with despair. He was no longer struggling. He tried thinking of ways to escape, yet to no avail–he could not shake this sealed space at all.
“Am I, Mo Chao, going to be doomed like this? No, no, Ying Shan Xue Ying did not kill me. It might be possible for me to live!” Mo Chao’s heart was in a mess. Battles were frequent between organizations in the Realm Heart Great Land, and it was normal for experts to fall. Quite a few Cosmos Gods had died during these battles, so what if a tenth level expert died? It would not cause any wave at all.
“I’ve experienced so many difficulties in my life. I had even headed to the Myriad Realms Ancient Nation by myself, crossing through the Ten Calamity Bridges despite the pessimism of others. Only then did I reach my current stage.” Mo Chao gritted his teeth.
He felt unwilling.
The path of cultivation was so hard, and it was not easy for him to reach where he is. Nevertheless, a failure could possibly spell an end to his journey!
“Hu.” A blurred figure started condensing. It was none other than the white-robed Xue Ying.
“Ying Shan Xue Ying.” Mo Chao hurriedly stood up. He stared at Xue Ying with preparedness in his eyes.
“Let me see all the treasures you have.” Xue Ying said.
“What do you want to do?” Mo Chao became both nervous and alert.
“Haha, why? Are you still thinking of resisting despite where you are now? If I wanted to kill you, I could simply smash you to death using the Five Phases Seal.” Xue Ying said.
Mo Chao understood this point. He personally experienced how powerful the Five Phases Sealing Technique was. That time, it was merely used to bind him, yet that vast power was something Mo Chao could not resist. No matter how much he struggled, he could not withstand against the ‘spatial restriction suppressive power’. It made him understand that if the other seal pressed down on him, he would die!
Even if he had trained the Sky Sword Undying Body to the grand perfection, he could merely survive for a few moves.
“Here.” Mo Chao waved his hand.
At that time, many weapons and treasures flew out from the storage treasure.
Xue Ying then pointed forward, causing a thread of ripple to enter Mo Chao’s body. Even though Mo Chao wanted to defend himself, he did not do so and allow Xue Ying to probe through his body.
“At least you aren’t hiding anything.” Only then did Xue Ying took over the treasures and check them once through.
Mo Chao had a total of two formidable secret treasures. It’s a pity both were only at the tenth level grade! Actually, this was normal. To most Primal Chaos experts, powerful Cosmos God secret treasures were useless since they did not have the energy or realm to utilize them. They might even be coveted by other Cosmos Gods! Hence, it was normal for experts to be like Mo Chao. Nevertheless, those who were like Xue Ying were exceptional ones.
He owned a Scarlet Cloud God Spear, which he discovered. The Fan Clan had even wanted to buy it over from him.
And the Five Phase Beads was something his teacher, the Southern Cloud King refined. His teacher trusted his disciple to secure this secret treasure since Xue Ying had grasped the Five Phases Sealing Technique. As such, it was directly given. And the stuff which the Southern Cloud King gave his disciple, was something the King believed no other Cosmos Gods dared to snatch it away! After all, the King had once fought with several unparalleled existences in the past for the sake of building the foundation of Southern Cloud Sacred Religion.
“I’ll be taking away the treasures. As for your little life, it’ll depend on whether the Sky Sword King is willing to redeem it or not.” Xue Ying said, “If the price is too low, I can only kill you when my teacher gives the order.”
“I understand.” Mo Chao nodded. He understood that his little life was being negotiated by the Sky Sword King and Southern Cloud King now.
If the redeeming price is too high and Sky Sword King wasn’t willing to pay? He would die!
And if the Sky Sword Sect wasn’t willing to cower back between the negotiation of the two religions? He would die!
Seated on the back of the magic dragon, Xue Ying sealed the entire Sky Sword Sect. That was how he blockaded the place. He did not care about how many cultivators were looking over from afar.
The sky turned from day to night.
And finally, from night to day again.
“Hahaha, Brother Sky Sword, you can’t be blamed this time, and can only blame your luck. The fortune dawns in my favor, and it isn’t an injustice for you to be defeated.”
“I am not angry at all. After all, nobody has a say for such an amazing little fellow to appear.”
The two colossal consciousness were clashing and discussing from afar.
They had almost finished the negotiation.
The advancement into the Black Devil Four Nations which the Sky Sword Sect prepared for a long time would be ended shortly after it began! Even though the ‘Southern Cloud King’ was powerful, the Sky Sword King wasn’t any weaker either. Furthermore, he had many experts supporting him behind his back. This time, he prepared quite amply and even sent out ‘His Highness Blaze Wind, Fan Chu Hu, Rain Dust Walker’ and other experts. This was merely the beginning.
The Sky Sword Sect had prepared for a long war between both parties.
Because under normal circumstances, it was too hard for tenth level experts to have a considerable gap, and they had to rely on their experiences to fight different kinds of battle.
But, this time when ‘Xue Ying’ came out! He openly challenged the other party. And many of the supporters behind the Sky Sword Sect’s back could not replace its disciples from taking the challenge. Hence, the Sky Sword King could only admit defeat!
Not just admit defeat.
Furthermore, the Sky Sword King had made quite a huge sacrifice in the confrontation within the realm of ‘Towering Sky Ancient Nation’! He had no choice. If he did not lower his head, Xue Ying would likely continue blockading other cities in the Realm Heart Great Land and continue blockading his sect.
And ‘Southern Cloud King’ was clear that he could not force the other party too far either!
There existed an unspoken rule whereby only disciples at the Primal Chaos Realm would fight between each other instead of those at the highest level. Nevertheless, if one party was pushed to the extent that its foundation was threatened, then the king himself and other more horrifying existences behind his back might just act and break all cordialness.
One should not be too greedy and push beyond the boundaries of the other party!
The sky had gradually brightened.
Xue Ying who sat on the back of the magic dragon looked up across the horizons: ‘It’s the second day. I wonder how is negotiation?’
Just a moment later.
“Xue Ying, everything has been completed. The Sky Sword King is willing to use eight billion cosmos crystals and two tenth level secret treasures which Mo Chao has to redeem his life. Let him off now. Also, your mission is completed. You can come back now. There is no need to stay at the Fiery Zhao Nation any longer.” Southern Cloud King transmitted.
“Yes, teacher.” Xue Ying then sent out a thought.
He waved his hand.
That violet-robed male Mo Chao appeared by the side. Mo Chao looked at the surrounding void, the huge black dragon in front and Xue Ying who was looking at him now.
“These are your secret treasures.” Xue Ying waved his hand before throwing out those two tenth level secret treasures.
Those two secret treasures were worth between 1.5 billion cosmos crystals.
In other words…
The life of Mo Chao was exchanged for a total of 6.5 billion cosmos crystals! This was the benefit of capturing the other party alive. Of course, it was because the wealth of Sky Sword King was quite average. If it were someone as rich as the ‘Southern Cloud King’, the enemies would likely ask for a higher price just to redeem a tenth level expert! After all, the Southern Cloud King is that rich!
As for the Sky Sword King, he had been squeezed dry by two great ancient nations and was comparatively less wealthy.
Xue Ying sat on the back of the magic dragon. With an order, the magic dragon swam away and tunneled into the void.
Mo Chao sighed inwardly as he watched. This time, the Sky Sword Sect had lost big time. But he was celebrating internally since he had survived at least.
“This time, the mission of Sky Sword Sect to advance into the Black Devil Four Nations has failed shortly after it began.” His Highness Blaze Wind and the others within the Sky Sword Sect Palace understood after seeing Mo Chao being released alive–the Sky Sword Sect had finished negotiating with the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion.
“We had no choice. Who would have thought that Ying Shan Xue Ying would appear, and he has even grasped the Five Phases Sealing Technique.”
They all sighed.
Xue Ying merely transmitted a message to Marquis Qu Ming before returning to the Southern Cloud Capital.
Within the meditation ground of the royal palace.
Southern Cloud King sat cross-legged on the black grass. Behind him was a deep lake covered in a white fog. He was currently smiling at the white-robed young man who came down from a magic dragon. He felt pleased. He could even deduce that his disciple Xue Ying had taken on step into the Cosmos God Realm. Once Xue Ying entered the Cosmos God Realm, it was likely for him to reach large success in the Five Phases Sealing Technique. By then, this disciple of his would become the second strongest expert in the Southern Cloud Nation, and a dependable aide of his!
After all, he did not have many powerful experts by his side. Those who were truly strong would usually join an ancient nation!
Xue Ying flew down from the magic dragon. He was able to see with a glance that there was a group of people standing beside his teacher–Monarch Chun Yu, Monarch Greedy Peng and the rest. There were also several other tenth level Conferred Kings and personal disciples. They were all waiting here for Xue Ying. Old Mother Ying Shan even grinned–she was clearly delighted. And Fourth Disciple Brother Fu Ling Yun, Fifth Disciple Brother Fu Ling Xiao were no longer envious. They were clear that they would merely remain at the ninth level strength even after their teacher did his best to nurture them.
And currently, this junior disciple brother of theirs had reached a strength that far transcended Senior Disciple Brother Gong Liang Yi and Senior Disciple Sister Ghost Li who they worshipped in the past.
On this day, Xue Ying’s name had spread across the entire higher level of Realm Heart Great Land, causing many experts to direct their attention to this small region south of the Summer Wind Ancient Nation. As for the Southern Cloud Nation, it had become a hot topic already.
“Disciple greets Teacher.” Xue Ying walked up and gave a respectful bow.
