Flying Snow City, within a garden inside the king’s residence, delicious food and wine were being served. Xue Ying and Fan Tian Chong were currently chatting happily inside.
“The reason I came here is because there is good news I want to share with you, brother.” Fan Tian Chong laughed. At the same time, he glanced at the group of beautiful female servants to the side.
“All of you, withdraw for now.” Xue Ying immediately gave his order to the surrounding people.
“Yes, Grandpa King.”
The group of beautiful female servants obediently answered. They immediately left the place in an orderly manner, leaving behind just Xue Ying and Fan Tian Chong in the garden.
The tall and plump body of Fan Tian Chong sat upright. He muttered in a low voice: “Younger Brother Xue Ying, my Fan Clan has an important matter which requires your participation. Do feel rest assure though that you are just one of the members participating in this affair. Furthermore, there are no risks at all to your life. Once you completed this mission, we can give you benefits worth a billion cosmos crystals. Hahaha… not only would you not be in danger. You will not be spending much time too as the duration of the entire event will not exceed a thousand years. There should not be any problem to for Younger Brother right?”
“Oh?” Xue Ying was listening attentively.
If his teacher had not warned him beforehand, a mission that did not consist of any life-threatening danger, and did not require much time with a benefit of one billion cosmos crystals was something Xue Ying would not decline. That was especially so since the Fan Clan invited him for his help and he was doing it partly due to the friendship with Fan Tian Chong too.
“Can you tell me more details regarding this? What exactly is it about?” Xue Ying asked.
“As you haven’t agreed yet, I can’t share any further details with you.” Fan Tian Chong laughed, “Actually Younger Brother, this operation can be used as a form of training too. Haha, actually, I wish to participate! It’s a pity though that nobody in the clan thought of me highly. Younger Brother has grasped the Five Phases Sealing Technique, which is why you have been chosen as a canditate to participate in the mission. In a while after giving me your answer, you will naturally know everything after reaching the Summer Wind Ancient Nation. Rest assured though as we won’t force you to do anything against the Southern Cloud Nation, and neither would we make things difficult for you whatsoever.”
The conditions were excellent on the surface.
But it’s a pity Xue Ying chose to decline it.
“I can agree to your request, but I want to raise a condition.” Xue Ying said.
“Tell me more.” Fan Tian Chong laughed. This was a solemn affair, to which his clan gave him the autonomy to increase the benefits!
“I require the assurance of becoming an ‘Upper Honored Guest’ within the Fan Clan, and a total of 10,000 contribution points once the mission is completed.” Xue Ying said.
Fan Tian Chong was stunned. He looked at Xue Ying wide with eyes.
The lion had opened its maw!
It startled Fan Tian Chong so much that he fell into a daze.
“Younger Brother Xue Ying, do you know what it means to be an Upper Honored Guest? And do you know what 10,000 contribution points represented?” Fan Tian Chong could not help but blurt out, “The Fiery Zhao King and Maple Nest King are both merely Upper Honored Guest of my Fan Clan! Like your Senior Disciple Brother Monarch Greedy Peng, he is merely an Honored Guest. And you say you want to become an ‘Upper Honored Guest’? Are you sure you are not mistaken?”
Different ranks in the Honored Guest System of Fan Clan provided various benefits.
Not everyone was qualified to become an Upper Honored Guest.
“Yes.” Xue Ying nodded, “I know of it.”
“Impossible. This is absolutely impossible.” Fan Tian Chong shook his head, “I can tell you this upfront that it is impossible for my clan to accept such exaggerated demands of yours. Being the manager of my clan at the branch in the Southern Cloud Nation, we will definitely be interacting a lot in the future. Hence, I will not deceive you–what I can give you most is the identity of an Honored Guest and 2,000 contribution points! That is the limit.”
“Upper Honored Guest, 10,000 contribution points.” Xue Ying said.
“Ai, you are truly…” Fan Tian Chong felt helpless.
“Brother Tian Chong, I have given my conditions. You should contact the higher-ups of your clan. Who knows if they might agree to it?” Xue Ying chuckled.
“Alright alright alright.” Fan Tian Chong shook his head after seeing that, “I’ll report upwards now. But honestly, your conditions are way too excessive.”
Xue Ying was instead contacting his teacher Southern Cloud King in the dark.
His teacher had said it.
Once he started discussing with Fan Tian Chong about this matter, he had to inform his teacher, and his teacher would help him handle this affair.
“Teacher, I have already mentioned it to Fan Tian Chong. He said that it is impossible that the higher-ups of his clan will agree to it.” Xue Ying transmitted back.
“Alright. Since you already mentioned the conditions, let me handle the matter from now on. Oh right, have you grasped the Mirage and Illusory Realm secret treasure already and can unleash tenth level power with it?” Southern Cloud King asked.
“I have done so.” Xue Ying replied.
He originally created the Illusory Realm in the past without guidance from other sources.
Hence, of the two great moves imbued in the Heart Devil Bell, Xue Ying naturally first deduced the tenth level move in the World aspect. As for the ‘Bewilderment’ path of this lineage, even though Xue Ying was absolutely talented in the Mirage and Illusory Realm, and that he had some comprehension regarding this aspect in the past, he had merely reached the eighth level standard currently. By relying on the Heart Devil Bell, he could only unleash power at the ninth level.
“Alright. It is good that you grasped it. Otherwise, I might have to activate some Time Treasure to ensure you grasp it as soon as possible.” Southern Cloud King became joyous, “Since you have grasped the Mirage and Illusory Realm tenth level technique, the Fan Clan will definitely agree to it.”
Fan Tian Chong reported upwards. The one he was informing was his teacher, the ‘Sky-Rending Great Paragon’.
Sky-Rending Great Paragon had an extremely high status in the Fan Clan. Being one of the few Great Paragons, he was only second to Ancestor Fan. That time, he had transformed 99 subordinates of his into the Hundred-Battle Devil Gods! He was not only strong personally, but was also good at refining magic servants. He excelled even in nurturing his subordinates! Like for instance, other powerful Cosmos Gods might not be able to turn a bunch of ordinary Primal Chaos experts to the tenth level power, but he could! The Hundred-Battle Devil Gods were prime testaments to it!
Hence, within the Fan Clan, his power and influence were both tremendous!
“Sky-Rending Great Paragon.”
“Haha, Brother Southern Cloud.”
Two consciousness traveled across a vast distance before colliding into each other.
Even under the grandeur of the unparalleled existences, these two were absolute overlords across the Realm Heart Great Land. Southern Cloud King was an extreme expert in the Void Lineage. Being strong was one aspect, he had many avatars too and had incredibly strong survival capabilities! Some avatars had even utilized the ‘Great Destructive Realm Teleportation Technique’ and teleported to other Origin Worlds! Hence, it was practically impossible to kill him. This was one of the reasons why he could seize virtually all benefits gathered from the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion without it being snatched. Unlike the Sky Sword King who as a result, was squeezed dry by the Summer Wind Ancient Nation and Myriad Realms Ancient Nation.
“Are your Fan Clan going to enter another competition with the Summer Clan and Cang Clan?” Southern Cloud King transmitted, “According to my understanding, your clan has already lost five consecutive times already? If you were defeated again, it’d be the sixth consecutive defeat! And that has never happened in the history of your Fan Clan right?”
“Why? Because of this, you think your disciple is qualified to demand so many benefits?” Sky-Rending Great Paragon’s voice transmitted through his consciousness, “I am clear of what you are thinking. You want to make use of this opportunity to accumulate as much contribution points as possible so that your disciple could exchange powerful secret impartation techniques and powerful treasures from my Fan Clan. Am I right?”
“Right right right!”
Southern Cloud King laughed, “I believe you all will agree to it.”
“You are wrong! Hmph, there are so many tenth level experts in my Fan Clan, of which there are quite a few who are extremely powerful. For instance, some who specialized in other Dao paths, I can help them form the ‘Combat Magic Body’ that would allow their strength to soar. Furthermore, there are quite a few geniuses within the nation too! After being nurtured by us, I believe there are even more experts here.” Sky-Rending Great Paragon said.
“Haha, I forgot to tell you this. Xue Ying has recently acquired a Mirage and Illusory Realm secret treasure. Currently, he can unleash illusory realms at the tenth level.” Southern Cloud King transmitted.
Sky-Rending Great Paragon was stunned.
His consciousness turned silent for a while.
Mirage and Illusory Realm technique? Tenth level technique? That was a technique which dealt against the soul. No matter what secret treasure was applied, Primal Chaos experts were ultimately at the Primal Chaos Realm. Without secret treasures, they would remain at the ninth level power. Facing against a tenth level illusory realm secret treasure that dealt against the soul, the cultivator would practically be unparalleled! Unless the opponent was one of the exceptionally few who specialized in the soul and only then was it possible for him to resist.
If it were merely a Mirage and Illusory Realm tenth level move, Xue Ying would just be close to being unparalleled within the Primal Chaos Realm!
Using it together with the overbearing ‘Five Phases Sealing Technique’ that was incredibly strong in direct combat, Xue Ying would hence have no enemies at his level!
There might be some exceptions in the history which could still compete against Xue Ying, but those absolute geniuses would have long broken through to the Cosmos God Realm! Even Xue Ying was very close to becoming a Cosmos God. And now, Sky-Rending Great Paragon felt that it was hard to even find an enemy at the Primal Chaos Realm.
‘An absolute victory for us.’ Sky-Rending Great Paragon felt his heart wavering, ‘What a Ying Shan Xue Ying. It is fine for him to grasp the near unparalleled technique, the ‘Five Phases Sealing Technique’ alone. He had similarly grasped another near unparalleled technique, the Mirage, and Illusory Realm tenth level technique. This talent and comprehension ability means that it is certain for him to break through to the Cosmos God Realm in the future. The moment he trained and accumulated slightly more experience, he would not be any weaker than Fiery Zhao King and the others. Mn, it is fine for me to simply confer him with the Upper Honored Guest identity earlier! Since he’ll secure a victory for us, it is fine for us to give him 10,000 contribution points too!’
10,000 contribution points weren’t considered anything to the Fan Clan.
But with how big their clan and business was, it was impossible for them to be so wasteful. They had to go through many rounds of determination within their clan to see if it was ‘worth or not worth’ the price.
Clearly, Xue Ying who merely grasped the Five Phases Sealing Technique wasn’t worth the price. But now, he was worth it!
“Brother Southern Cloud, so it seems you have kept been keeping this secret from us. Alright, I’ll permit this matter then.” Sky-Rending Great Paragon said. Currently, the Fan Clan was temporarily being commandeered by the Sky-Rending Great Paragon. After all, strength did not represent the ability to manage the clan too. Amongst the great paragons, Sky-Rending Great Paragon was the one who specialized most in commandeering others and being the manager.
Flying Snow City, within the king’s residence, in the garden.
Fan Tian Chong was currently eating and chatting with Xue Ying.
“Younger Brother Xue Ying, seeing that we are brothers, I would like to remind you that it is fine for you to request for a condition representative of your ability. Given the disposition of the Fan Clan, if you were to demand something beyond your capabilities, they might just tear apart the conditions originally reserved for you and invite other experts instead. There are quite a few suitable experts in the Realm Heart Great Land that we can still hire.” Fan Tian Chong reiterated. Suddenly, his expression froze.
He had just gotten the transmission from his teacher: “You can promise him the conditions. Bring him over to the capital.”
Fan Tian Chong looked at Xue Ying in a daze.
“Why?” Xue Ying asked.
“He actually agreed to your conditions?” Fan Tian Chong looked at Xue Ying with an extreme startle, “Why would he?”
Xue Ying smiled.
“No wonder you dared to raise such conditions. It seems the Southern Cloud King is plotting behind our back?” Fan Tian Chong stood up, “I do not care about what exchange or trade there is between the Southern Cloud King and my teacher. Since they agreed to it, I shall bring you to my Summer Wind Capital. If there aren’t any matters, how about, we set off now?”
“Alright.” Xue Ying nodded, “Let us set off now.”
