Chapter 1063: Thistle Flower Nation
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
The majority of the tenth level graded Mirage and Illusory Realm secret treasures were consigned in shops owned by the apex organizations in the world like the Fan Clan.
Because if they sold to the shops directly, the purchase price would be meager! Secret treasures were much desired by experts, yet to those who did not require it, they would be useless! The Dao of ‘Mirage and Illusory Realm’ was one of the rarer few Dao paths cultivated by cultivators. There were very few who actually reached the ninth level without relying on external materials!
Hence, it was hard to find ‘interested customers’ in treasures of this Dao.
When these secret treasures were sold to the shops, the shops would naturally lower the price.
Those who owned the treasures were not too willing to suffer from the loss. They rather consign it and wait for a ‘buyer’ to appear.
“Thistle Flower Nation.”
A white-robed young man nimbly appeared in midair. He looked at the distant beautiful city. That was the capital of the Thistle Flower Nation.
‘The Thistle Flower Nation is also a tier three little nation. They have just a single Cosmos God and two tenth level experts protecting it.’ Xue Ying thought. In the Realm Heart Great Land, there were quite a lot of tier three nations. Many great organizations disdained from developing in those desolate and dangerous places. Like the Thistle Flower Nation which was located by the dangerous Black Prison Yin Sea, and was a country formed from several hundred thousand islands.
Do not ever belittle a tier three nation!
Even though they might be small, those who dared to start a nation were Cosmos Gods with a solid foundation. Furthermore, these nations would usually help each other, forming a union.
Like the Thistle Flower Nation, it was part of a union located south of the Black Prison Yin Sea formed by many nations, the ‘United Star Union’!
The Mirage and Illusory Realm secret treasures were all waiting for buyers who required them. Hence, it was not that important where they were consigned to.
Those who truly seek them would rapidly rush over to another place in the Realm Heart Great Land.
“The food here in the Thistle Flower Nation is quite good.”
Xue Ying enjoyed himself by a pub along the street.
“Sir Xue Ying, the owner of the secret treasure has stated his price. The lowest is 11.5 billion cosmos crystals.” There was a sudden transmission.
“11.5 billion cosmos crystals? That is still too expensive. I’ll have a look at it first. There are eight Mirage and Illusory Realm secret treasures in total after all. I shall find the most appropriate and cheapest one out of them.” Xue Ying transmitted back.
“Alright. I’ll continue to negotiate with the owner of the secret treasure.”
Xue Ying smiled.
The reason why he was enjoying the delicacies and strolled around looking at the secret treasures exasperatingly was all because he wanted to delay and lower the price!
If one said that shops owned by those apex organizations like Fan Clan would always have a bottom line in the price and could not lower it any further, it was different for those who ‘consigned’ the items since it was all an elaborate and refined bargain with the owner of the secret treasure! The appearance of a ‘buyer’ was not often. Xue Ying naturally wanted to lower the price as much as he could. By slightly delaying for a little more time, he might reduce it by a billion cosmos crystals!
‘They are really risking their lives. Most of these are fishes from the Black Prison Yin Sea.’ As Xue Ying enjoyed the delicacies, he was able to make a conjecture that quite a few cultivators actually sacrificed their lives to fish up these fishes.
But for the sake of earning resources and cultivating, they had to risk their lives. Nothing would ever drop down freely from the sky.
‘Of the first two secret treasures, the lowest for one was at 15.6 billion and the other at 11.5 billion cosmos crystals.’ Xue Ying was calculating it. Even if it was appropriate, he wanted to get it at a lower price.
The pub was very crowded.
There were many guests here too. Xue Ying sat by the corner in his white robe. With his void-ification capabilities in hiding his aura, other Primal Chaos experts would have a hard time discerning his real strength.
“Mn?” Xue Ying looked up. His gaze was filled with a strand of astonishment, ‘They said that the United Star Union is very chaotic, and killing is normal. But who would have thought that I would actually meet a huge scene of slaughter here at the Thistle Flower Nation capital.’
United Star Union was formed by many tier three nations, and some of them were utterly controlled by devils behind the scenes!
Those were too frequent in the United Star Union.
Simply speaking, the stronger the country, the more stable it would be. For instance, Summer Wind Ancient Nation and other five great ancient nations, they were much more stable overall! As for the United Star Union? It would depend on the strength of the king. Some were more stable, and some were so messy that it was similar to the Black Devil Great Lake.
“Sou sou sou.”
Even though Xue Ying perceived it, other guests in the pub did not.
Many soldiers stealthily appeared around the pub, forming a vast array as they came. This array had entrapped the entire place.
An enchanting green-gowned woman brought two subordinates with her and flew over from amidst the army. At this moment, she did not hide her aura at all. That enchanting and cold aura of hers spread over.
“My beloved husband, I have searched for you for a long time.” The enchanting green-gowned woman’s voice reverberated in the world. Her eyes stared at an attendant within the pub.
The moment she finished speaking.
The surrounding combat array of the army was activated. “Hong~” A huge piece of the region had been covered by it. The army even produced a two-headed mutated beast figure, frightening many other cultivators to feel on the street and in the pub.
“We are doomed! It’s that ‘Demoness Xia Yin’ from the Sky Pillar Clan!”
“Teacher, are we going to be implicated?”
“See our fate!”
“Don’t let out any sound.”
Many cultivators in the surrounding including the attendants of some shops, the managers and even the guests were all scared witless. Living in the Thistle Flower Nation, they were accustomed to the occasional killings within, albeit they never have thought they would actually experience one happening. They only hoped they would not be implicated.
“Xia’er, both of us had bonded together as companions. How about living me a path to live, alright?” The attendant looked up.
“Hahaha, husband, you are really innocent. Have you never heard of the term cutting the weeds and eliminating the roots? How can I spare you? You are the final core disciple the Ba Tuo Clan has.” The enchanting green-gowned woman laughed, “Naturally if you are willing to hand over the aura-concealing cultivation technique you have over, I might be able to promise you that I’ll spare the lives of all those lowest ranking disciples the Ba Tuo Clan has, and allow them to live.”
Ba Tuo Clan was once a Conferred King Clan in the Thistle Flower Nation. They had many disciples and only after reaching the Void God level would the disciple be considered a core disciple. The majority of the others were lower leveled civilians, and most were simply released into the wild. Their number could not be counted.
Even though they wanted to massacre the entire clan, it was impossible to slaughter clean all descendants from the Ba Tuo Clan that had reproduced across the many generations.
“You are ruthless.” The eyes of the emissary ‘Ba Tuo Chen’ were filled with great hatred.
He hated his fate.
He was originally from a Conferred King clan, yet it was exterminated overnight. His father, his mother, his brothers and good friends, and many other clanmates of his… the entire Ba Tuo Residence was wiped clean.
“Hahaha, ruthless? Did you think I was infatuated with you in the past? Alright, just obediently hand that aura-concealing technique you have over, and I might just leave some of the descendants from your Ba Tuo Clan alive considering that we were once Dao companions. Otherwise, I’ll scour through the entire United Star Union and completely wipe out your bloodline!” The enchanting green-gowned woman coldly uttered.
“You think I would believe you? Go on, kill me! Kill all of us! It is impossible for you to wipe us clean. There will be a day when an expert emerges from my Ba Tuo Clan before coming back to the Thistle Flower Nation again.” Emissary Ba Tuo Chen growled.
The eyes of the enchanting green-gowned woman were filled with a savage aura, “You aren’t willing to hand it over? Seeing that you decided to conceal your identity as an attendant, the people of this pub must be helping you. Leave none alive. Also, the surrounding people will accompany in the burial too.”
The managers and guests within the pub revealed looks of horror. The cultivators nearby also felt their hearts trembling.
“You—” The emissary Ba Tuo Chen roared, “Xia Yin, why the need to implicate the innocent? Let me tell you honestly, I have gotten this cultivation technique due to my fortune, but this cultivation technique is forbidden from being spread outwards.”
“You did not obtain the original copy?” The green-gowned girl sighed after hearing that.
Most amazing cultivation techniques were forbidden from being spread outwards.
“Ai, truly a regret.”
The green-gowned woman waved her hands, “Kill all of them. Leave none alive.”
“General Xia Yin!”
“Mercy! Spare us!”
“You are the from the Sky Pillar ‘Yang Clan’ which is also one of Sky Pillar Clans of our Thistle Flower Nation! You can’t do this!”
“General Xia Yin!”
Many sounds of mercy sounded. There were even cultivators kneeling down when they saw how things progressed.
“Wipe them out!” The green-gowned woman did not acquire the cultivation technique. She was feeling really unpleasant and murderous now as that savage eyes of hers wiped around the place.
“Yes.” The army hesitated momentarily, yet could only acknowledge the orders.
Seated at a corner within the pub, the white-robed young man who had been watching everything calmly gave out a light sigh. The strange thing was that his sigh sounded by the ears of everyone around the place. It reverberated by the ears of every single soldier, causing everyone to feel terror! The soldiers who were originally about to carry out the orders realized shortly that they could no longer move.
Not even an inch!
The green-gowned woman turned to that white-robed young man with terror. She also discovered that she could no longer move. The surrounding void had completely suppressed her, restricting her motion.
That white-robed young man sat there ordering: “Manager, bring more wine over.”
“Ai, ai!” That manager of the pub who was initially filled with despair, felt his heart trembling and hurriedly bring the wine over. He did not seem to be affected and could still move.
“This great sir, this is a matter between our Sky Pillar’ Yang Clan’ and the Ba Tuo Clan. I do sincerely request for great sir not to intervene.” The green-gowned woman shouted out in a loud voice despite not being able to move. She exceptionally pronounced the two words ‘Sky Pillar’.
These were words that held a unique meaning within the United Star Union. It represented a Sky Pillar ranked clan within a single nation, and most usually had tenth level experts within. This was an existence that could fight against Cosmos Gods, and it was logical for this green-gowned woman to be arrogant.
“Sky Pillar Yang Clan?” Xue Ying softly nodded, “Originally, I am too lazy to intervene in this hatred and revenge of yours. It’s just that killing them all and leaving none alive… doesn’t seem right. These ordinary cultivators aren’t enemies of your Yang Clan isn’t it?”
The expression of that green-gowned woman turned ugly.
So what if she killed these ants?
“Why? In your eyes, they are merely ants?” Xue Ying shook his head, “What a pity. In my eyes, you are an ant too.”
The moment he finished speaking, the green-gowned woman revealed a look of terror. Her body had exploded entirely and dissipated from the world.
The surrounding place was quiet.
All the soldiers and cultivators remained quiet out of fear. The daughter of Sky Pillar Yang Clan’s patriarch died just like that?
Xue Ying’s eyes were filled with coldness. His heart temperament had determined that he would never tolerate acts of the strong bullying the weak! Maybe when he was weak, he could not influence the Realm Heart Great Land at all. But whenever he met such a situation, he would definitely intervene if he could!
“Things are getting troublesome.”
“He killed the patriarch’s daughter, General Xia Yin.”
Many other cultivators were panicking. Yet Xue Ying remained seated there continuing drinking.
In the distant, a horrifying and dazzling aura descended. He was akin to a lump of eye-striking light. Endless light surged out and condensed into a human. At the same time, his furious roar sounded across the world: “Who dares to kill my daughter Xia Yin?”
“Me.” Xue Ying remained seated there pouring wine for himself.
