Chapter 1103: Investigation
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Xue Ying stood in the vast Primal Chaos Void. His heart felt icy-cold; his expression turned pale.
Various thoughts appeared in his mind.
Worry, unease, terror…
Xue Ying looked around him, ‘How could one of the five great sacred worlds, the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World disappear? Could it be that I deviated too far off from my destination during teleportation?’
His senses relied on the void to expand out in all directions. It continued expanding endlessly, engulfing many cosmos and lands. Having pursued after the Destruction Devils for a trillion years, Xue Ying was too familiar with the various situations happening in the Primal Chaos Void. He knew after reincarnating in the Bright Star Planet that the world he was on was ‘Bright Star Planet’ after engulfing the place with his senses.
Because he had been there before in the past!
Similarly, Xue Ying was extremely familiar with the surrounding of Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World too.
‘I am not mistaken. The cosmos around this place shows that this should be where the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World is, but how come it is no longer here?’ Even if Xue Ying was a Cosmos God, he could hardly conceal his anxiety. The Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World was where too many of his loved ones stayed at–his wife, his children, many good friends of his, those from the same sect, the Great Void Heaven Temple…
‘It has only been close to 10 billion years, yet what exactly had happened?’ Xue Ying suppressed his unease. With a ‘sou’, he silently disappeared from the vicinity.
When he appeared again, Xue Ying was located in the vast void just outside one of the original five great sacred worlds, ‘Eastern Unicorn Sacred World’.
‘It is here.’ Xue Ying saw the vast sacred world ahead of him, letting out a breath of relief. Fortunately, the Eastern Unicorn Sacred World remained fine.
According to logic.
Xue Ying spent close to 10 billion years in the Realm Heart Great Land, and this short period was considered short to most cultivators! The Primal Chaos Void should not have too many changes during this ‘short period’, yet the ‘Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World’ disappeared, bringing panic to Xue Ying. He was afraid that even Eastern Unicorn Sacred World was no longer there.
‘The foundation of Eastern Unicorn Sacred World is deeper. There is Blade Emperor, Void Primogenitor and others here. There is also that mysterious and unfathomable Luo City Lord.’ Xue Ying thought.
Luo City Lord was clearly a Primal Chaos expert.
Yet he could easily suppress existences like Void Primogenitor. From Xue Ying’s perspective, even if Ancestor Fan and the others utilized the Great Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique to come here, they would still be suppressed to the Primal Chaos Realm and could not be that strong either. It did not seem logical for Luo City Lord to be so powerful.
‘Is Luo City Lord an outsider?’ Xue Ying thought, ‘And merely an avatar came here? An avatar that has been suppressed to the Primal Chaos Realm yet he is still so strong. It is highly possible that his true body is frighteningly strong–beyond that of Ancestor Fan and the others! If he could completely display his full strength, he should be able to eradicate Sacred Master easily. What a pity that he is an outsider, and could barely unleash power equivalent to a second level Cosmos God, and is far weaker than Blade Emperor, Ancestor Sorcerer, and the others.’
Taking a step, Xue Ying entered the Eastern Unicorn Sacred World. He casually chose a huge city.
The city remained bustling with activity from many cultivators.
There were businesses at the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World that specialized in trades, with the biggest behemoth being the ‘Seven Star Oceanic Pavilion’. Similarly, its counterpart in the Eastern Unicorn Sacred World was the ‘Eastern Unicorn Palace’.
‘Eastern Unicorn Palace.’ Xue Ying arrived at one of the branches of Eastern Unicorn Palace in this great city. He looked up at the towering structure ahead.
“Welcome, sir to the Eastern Unicorn Palace. Our Eastern Unicorn Palace has practically everything.” A beautiful True God female servant welcomed him.
Xue Ying had easily concealed his aura using the Nine Rotation Undying Technique and even disguised himself as a cold and murderous cultivator. He even wore a silver mask over his face. Currently, he merely hid his aura as a Unity Realm expert. If a mysterious Cosmos God came? The palace master of this branch of Eastern Unicorn Palace would be afraid, even Blade Emperor and the others would be alarmed from his visit!
Very soon, he was guided over to an elegant hall. Good food and wine were served, and he even had a female attendant accompanying him.
Unity Realm… that was considered sufficiently powerful in a great city.
“I’ve been in closed-door cultivation for tens of billions of years.” Xue Ying said, “After coming out, I’ve heard that the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World disappeared?”
“Yes, that was a great battle.” The female attendant smiled.
“Great battle?” Xue Ying felt puzzled.
“According to rumors, it was related to the Sacred Master. I am not that clear as to the details of what exactly happened.” The female attendant replied. Even if she did, she would not say too much. She could undoubtedly talk about ordinary news that spread across the world, but information that was slightly more ‘precious’ had to be bought!
Xue Ying felt his heart turning paralyzed momentarily.
That was within his expectations. Forefather Tian Yu and the others would not be so bored to destroy their own sacred world. He reckoned only ‘Sacred Master’ dared to do such a thing.
“I want to understand relevant detailed information regarding the disappearance of the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World and other matters which happened in the recent tens of billions of years.” Xue Ying said.
“How detailed?” The female attendant asked.
“The more detailed, the better.” Xue Ying said.
The female attendant softly nodded. She muttered to herself, irresolutely. It was clear that she was talking to the higher-ups.
“This piece of information involves many matters. It requires one piece of Origin World Rock.” The female attendant said.
“I have some ‘Three-Colored Golden String Rock’ with me.”
Xue Ying waved his hand. Many three-colored half-translucent rocks appeared. There were even golden strands swimming within the rocks. A total of 18 pieces of rocks appeared, “Is it possible for me to use this in exchange for a piece of Origin World Rock?” This had been directly formed from his own Mirage Cosmos. Materials which he took out from his own Mirage Cosmos had to be first fully understood by him.
Like the ‘Five Phases Bead’ and other powerful secret treasures, or even mysterious materials were items that Xue Ying could not create unless he actually went to research them.
Given his current Realm, some of the less precious materials could be dissected, and Xue Ying could consume slight energy to produce them from nothingness. If he were willing, being the only Cosmos God in this Primal Chaos Void that grasped a ‘Mirage Cosmos’, Xue Ying would absolutely be ranked in the first few in terms of wealth! Nevertheless, the truly precious secret treasures and materials could not be exchanged using ordinary materials.
“You can.” The female attendant nodded.
A set of information was sent to Xue Ying.
After receiving the violet scroll from the female attendant, Xue Ying opened it up. Many words started appearing on the scroll, and an even greater amount of information started surging into the mind of Xue Ying.
Sacred Master captured the Mirage Palace Master of the Great Void Heaven Temple, ‘Xue Ying’. Xue Ying had fallen in the Ancient Sacred World.
Just 30 million years after the death of Xue Ying, Sacred Master actually quietly infiltrated into the Great Void Heaven Temple. He then assassinated and slaughtered its cultivators.
A great battle abruptly started!
Ancestor Sorcerer, World Ancestor, and others participated in it too.
It seemed Sacred Master was insane during this great battle. Eventually, it caused the entire Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World to collapse. The Great Void Heaven Temple, Primogenitor Island, and Jade Light Sacred Territory only had enough time to teleport away civilians from some of their bigger cities. Countless civilians in other bigger regions of the sacred world had been exterminated during this battle that led to the destruction of the sacred world.
Xue Ying’s expression turned ashen-green. Practically almost all living beings on the sacred world had been exterminated?
The information recorded was very detailed. It even recorded how Sacred Master had rapidly captured part of the disciples from the Great Void Heaven Temple at the same time when he assaulted the Great Void Heaven Temple.
‘Why did the Sacred Master infiltrate the Great Void Heaven Temple? Given his personality, he did not kill everyone, but instead, captured several disciples from the Great Void Heaven Temple?’ Xue Ying frowned inwardly.
It seemed that the Primogenitor Island and Jade Light Sacred Territory were fishes in the pond that had been pulled into the great battle that led to the destruction of the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World.
‘Assassinated the Great Void Heaven Temple? Was it related to the Swordmaster or me?’ Xue Ying thought.
That time when Swordmaster broke through, he angered Sacred Master so much so that the other party rushed his way over.
‘The Sacred Master is insane? So mad that he destroyed the entire Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World?’ Xue Ying was a Cosmos God too and understood how easy it was to harm a sacred world. But to completely destroy it with hindrances from Ancestor Sorcerer and World Ancestor wasn’t easy. Nevertheless, Sacred Master still continued doing so. He was most likely infuriated to the point of no return.
‘There is also Jing Qiu, Yu’er, Qing Yao and many other sect mates from the Great Void Heaven Temple.’ Xue Ying wanted to seek information related to his wife and children and many of his loved ones, but these were not appropriate to be bought yet!
Xue Ying temporarily did not want to reveal his identity!
After all, he had experienced a reincarnation from the Realm Heart Great Land before coming back. Even though his current true body had a soul constructed from his original true spirit, there were still qualitative differences in the aura of his soul! Furthermore, he cultivated the Nine Rotation Undying Technique, and it made it easy for him to disguise his aura! Even ‘Sacred Master’ felt that Xue Ying had died. Hence, all the more Xue Ying should conceal his identity.
The enemy was in the light, and Xue Ying was in the dark. This would have better effects!
Naturally, some people were worth trusting like ‘Forefather Tian Yu’ or ‘Void Primogenitor’. It was only because his soul had been dissipated in the past. A strand of true spirit was sent into the Realm Heart Great Land. This was something that involved the Realm Heart Order and reincarnation. It wasn’t an easy task to convince the other Cosmos Gods like Void Primogenitor that he was Xue Ying.
‘I shall temporarily stay in the dark. Currently, I am not strong enough. I haven’t even grasped the first level of the <Chaotic Origin Dao Scroll>. Mn, I should first understand the situation of Jing Qiu and the others. I hope they are still fine.’ According to the intelligence, the majority of cultivators from the Great Void Heaven Temple had been teleported away by Swordmaster and Forefather Tian Yu into the Eastern Unicorn Sacred World. Xue Ying hoped his wife and children were here too.
Xue Ying then casually left this Eastern Unicorn Palace.
