Chapter 1067: A Change of Attitude
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
The endless light condensed into a human. It was a furious bald-headed old man. He was emanating light, so much so that he felt akin to a ruler of all life.
“Who dares to kill my daughter Xia Yin?” His furious roar shook the entire world. At the same time, his killing intent started engulfing the whole place, chilling the hearts of those who were at the street—those cultivators felt their soul freezing temporarily and their hearts palpitating. They looked in terror at that figure. All the guests within the pub including that manager who just brought wine for Xue Ying stared with wide eyes at this new light-emitting figure that appeared in the midair.
Which civilian of the Thistle Flower Nation did not know of that terrifying existence?
“Sky Pillar King! Sky Pillar King!”
“It is the Sky Pillar King!”
“The Sky Pillar King has arrived. We are doomed. We are really doomed.”
In the entire Thistle Flower Nation, there were a total of two Sky Pillar Kings–both were tenth level experts. Their statuses were much higher than other Conferred Kings.
The person with the highest status in Thistle Flower Nation was the king. Closely following him were the two Sky Pillar Kings. The moment they were angered, many beings would die! But the civilians were relatively filled with reverence and admiration for the ‘Sky Pillar Kings’ since with them and the king around, their ‘Thistle Flower Nation’ could resist against outside enemies and devils.
If the Thistle Flower Nation did not have sufficiently strong experts, the country would have been wiped by devils.
But even if they revered them, at this moment, these cultivators felt the threat of death arriving. They were horrified, and none of them wanted to die! They even felt injustice as they had been implicated!
“I do not want to die! I haven’t even found a Dao companion!”
“I only wanted to earn more cosmos crystals and send my son to the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion and let him learn the <Southern Cloud 12 Sacred Styles>! But everything has come to an end. Given how angry the Sky Pillar King is, he would likely extinguish all of us with a single thought.”
The cultivators were either filled with despair and unwillingness, or they were calmly treating it.
Naturally, the soldiers were feeling incredibly joyous at this moment!
Regardless, there were practically none who harbored hope for Xue Ying since the influence of the ‘Sky Pillar King’ was too great. In the eyes of the civilians from the Thistle Flower Nation, the Sky Pillar Kings were existences that could fight against Cosmos Gods! If Cosmos Gods did not appear, then the Sky Pillar King could wipe all Primal Chaos existences. That ‘white-robed young man’ might be formidable, but he was merely emitting an aura at the Primal Chaos Realm and wasn’t as dazzling or tyrannical as what the Sky Pillar King was currently emanating.
“It is me.” Xue Ying stood there. He continued pouring wine for himself while glancing at that bald-headed old man who was currently emitting a bright light in all directions. Feeling the anger and dense killing intent from the other party, Xue Ying continued with an indifferent tone, “Why? Are you thinking of killing me?”
That bald-headed old man turned towards this ‘white-robed young man’ who just killed his daughter. What gall! He even dared to drink at this moment!
All of a sudden, that bald-headed old man quivered. The dense killing intent in his heart had instantly been extinguished. Instead, he felt his body turning cold. He looked at that white-robed young man with a slight tremble. Xue Ying might have kept his aura when traveling outside the world, but he did not change his appearance at all! After all, he was located at an extremely faraway place, the Thistle Flower Nation. Xue Ying was just a newly emerged absolute expert from a small region south of the Summer Wind Ancient Nation, one of the ‘Black Devil Four Nations’. Few knew of him in the Thistle Flower Nation. Usually, only most Primal Chaos experts and some aristocratic clan disciples who exceptionally paid attention to outside information knew about him.
In reality, even Xue Ying would not care to collect information on experts from the tiny nations around the faraway Myriad Realms Ancient Nation or Primogenitor Ancient Nation. Only when these experts had sufficient identity would the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion naturally transmit the latest intelligence to him.
And the aristocratic clan disciples within the Thistle Flower Nation had to collect the information by themselves.
Hence, not many knew of Xue Ying!
And being one of the two Sky Pillars of the Thistle Flower Nation–’Yang Xiong’, the old ancestor from the Yang Clan, he had naturally collected information regarding Xue Ying.
‘It is him? Ying Shan Xue Ying?’ The bald-headed old man felt his body turning cold, and his heart trembling, ‘The protector of the Sky Sword Sect, Thunder King Mo Chao, could not resist a single move in front of him. He had been captured alive directly by the Five Phases Sealing Technique! At the most, I am comparable to Thunder King Mo Chao in terms of strength! I might even lose out to him on certain aspects.’
‘The moment the Five Phases Sealing Technique appears, I’ll be doomed.’
The bald-headed old man was very clear of this point.
He lived for far too long. He was originally an ordinary civilian from the Summer Wind Ancient Nation. Step by step, he climbed and finally reached where he was currently. He outwitted many others, lived between life and death, and experienced far too much! Given his current strength, he had never thought of returning to the Summer Wind Ancient Nation. Because he was considered average in the Summer Wind Ancient Nation, unlike in the Thistle Flower Nation where he could live so freely!
As for the fury and killing intent he originally had, they had disappeared totally into thin air.
For the sake of his life, he would not care about all his children at all! He had a total of 256 children, so what if a daughter died?
“I dare not, I dare not.”
The bald-headed old man immediately kept his aura. He descended down onto the ground and put on a face filled with enthusiasm. He even started flattering the other party! After taking a few steps, he appeared by the side of the pub and gave Xue Ying a bow with a laugh: “I do hope for you to pardon me for my actions. That lowly s**t has offended Sir Xue Ying and should naturally die! Even if Sir Xue Ying did not act, I would do so since this s**t did not even know her status.”
His voice merely sounded in the vicinity.
Only him and Xue Ying could hear it. As for the other pub guests and cultivators, they could hear nothing at all!
He might be willing to flatter Xue Ying, though he did not wish for other guests to hear what he was saying.
“What is happening?”
“The Sky Pillar King, what? Why did it seem like…”
Even though they could not hear anything, they could still see it!
Seeing that passionate smile on the face of the Sky Pillar King, ‘Yang Xiong’, and how he was even bowing as an apology to that white-robed young man.
“Have we met a big character?”
“Who is he?”
“For him to make the Sky Pillar King revere him, is it a Cosmos God?”
“He should be!”
The surrounding pub manager, guests, and cultivators were all feeling delight. They could see the light at the end of the tunnel! The hope of survival!
Xue Ying continued drinking. He casually spoke: “Yang Xiong, other than this attendant, the other cultivators did not offend your daughter at all, yet your daughter Xia Yin wanted to kill all of them. This is no different from those devils from the Black Devil Great Lake. Since she so casually kills other cultivators, I can only return the favor onto her.”
“What? She actually dares to commit such acts? Previously, she was already quite ruthless, yet I’d not thought that she dared to do it.” Yang Xiong revealed a look of fury. In reality, he had already known of the savage personality his daughter had.
In the distant, a figure appeared. It was a plump male. When that male appeared, many illusory flowers seemed to blossom in the surrounding. The cultivators present felt joy in their heart.
“King.” Everyone present felt truly respectful.
The incomer was none other than the Thistle Flower King.
“So it appears that Ying Shan Xue Ying has paid my Thistle Flower Nation a visit. Why did you not inform me regarding that?” Thistle Flower King smiled. At the same time, he glanced to the bald-headed old man, “Yang Xiong, since your daughter has offended Ying Shan Xue Ying, you must remember to make amendments with him during the banquet in a while’s time.”
“Definitely, definitely.” The bald-headed old man answered.
“Greetings, King.” Xue Ying stood up. He could disregard Yang Xiong, though he still had to treat Thistle Flower King with respect.
“Haha… I’ve long heard of your name, Ying Shan Xue Ying. Who would have thought that we would meet so soon? It seems Brother Xue Ying and I are fated to meet.” Thistle Flower King enthusiastically said. Just a few words and he was calling the other party ‘brother’.
This was normal too.
After all, the gap in strength between them was small. But given that Xue Ying had grasped the Five Phases Sealing Technique, it could be foreseen that Xue Ying would become a Cosmos God in the ‘Void Lineage’ sooner or later. By then, Xue Ying would be far stronger than the Thistle Flower King. After all, there was an even more horrifying existence behind the back of Xue Ying–the Southern Cloud King!
The Southern Cloud King was someone even the unparalleled existences from the six great ancient nations had to swallow their anger. Nevertheless, facing a king from this tier three nation, the Southern Cloud King could simply oppress him.
“It’s him, Yang Xiong.” The attendant by the side, ‘Ba Tuo Chen’, first felt despair when he saw Yang Xiong. After that, Yang Xiong actually postured himself lowly in front of the white-robed young man. After the death of his daughter, the other party did not even dare to fart in front of this white-robed young man!
Following that, he saw how enthusiastic the strongest expert in the Thistle Flower Nation, the ‘Thistle Flower King’ was to the white-robed young man, chatting with him with smiles.
“Brother Xue Ying, let’s go! Come visit my palace. I have plenty of good food and drinks at my place.” The Thistle Flower King said.
“There is no need for King to be so polite.” Xue Ying said, “I still have something on and will not be tarrying here anymore.”
Ba Tuo Chen by the side suddenly shouted out.
At this moment, everyone present fell into silence. The Thistle Flower King and Yang Xiong were treating that white-robed young man with such passion, so how would they dare to shout? But this shout had attracted the attention of many people, and even the focus of Thistle Flower King, Yang Xiong and Xue Ying.
This was still the first time Ba Tuo Chen was stared at by the King.
“Senior.” Ba Tuo Chen was instead looking at Xue Ying. With a ‘peng’, he knelt down heavily on the ground.
He knew that if he missed this chance, he would be consigned to eternal damnation!
