Chapter 1113: A Strand of Fluctuation
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Before this, Xue Ying and the others treated Sacred Master as their nemesis. Only now did they understand that their nemesis should be ‘time’ instead. The moment the Great Apocalypse of the Primal Chaos Void arrived, all of them would be wiped out. Xue Ying could still survive as he had avatars in the ‘Realm Heart Great Land’. But in the future, if he were to return using the ‘Great Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique’, Xue Ying would no longer be able to reincarnate into this world. Hence, he would be repulsed by the next era of the Primal Chaos Void!
“It isn’t too long from now.” Old Monster Stone looked at the group of Cosmos Gods in front and glanced at the two young fellows Dong Bo Yu and Qing Yao that had been startled by the frighteningly strong suppression, before replying, “The Primal Chaos Void will expand faster and faster. Under the circumstances that you could resist against the Destruction Devils, you should have about 15 trillion years to 20 trillion years.”
Everyone present was stunned.
Xue Ying, with his heavenly-defying talent, spent a trillion years just to become a Cosmos God!
The expression of Swordmaster changed, too: “So short?” His comprehension abilities were extremely high. He did not have to temper himself outside the world. Instead, he reached the level-two Cosmos God Realm simply by burying himself in closed-door cultivation, yet he spent 20 trillion years to do so. Swordmaster himself understood that he still had to break through several bottlenecks before reaching the ‘final realm of Cosmos God’. Each fusion of a branch of the Dao was a significant obstacle, and the final fusion of all branches as one was the hardest–to push his comprehension and deduction of the Dao of Slaughter to its furthest. ( NovelFull )
Swordmaster still remembered the words spoken by Sacred Master to him–”I hope that you will be able to reach the final level-three before the final limit of this primal chaos void. By then, this world will be more interesting.”
Sacred Master was similar to Old Monster Stone–both of them had lived for more than an era. They could deduce approximately how long before the Great Apocalypse arrived. During this period, Sacred Master reckoned that ‘Swordmaster’ was the only one who could possibly succeed. As for others? Given the insight of Sacred Master, nobody had any chances at all.
‘I do not have much time left.’ Xue Ying became anxious too.
‘I have broken through in all nine branches of the Dao of Void to the Cosmos God Realm. My accumulations in them are broad and deep too. It shouldn’t be hard for me to step into the level-two Cosmos God Realm. But to reach the final realm, I have to fuse all nine branches together. Fusing two branches is challenging, three branches, four branches… every step is a great threshold.’ Xue Ying slightly shook his head. Even his teacher, the Southern Cloud King, created the Avatar Technique, the Great Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique, yet he was still stuck at the level-two Cosmos God Realm.
‘As for the Dao of Mirage? It is harder than the Dao of the Void.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly.
He still had scriptures to follow for the Dao of Void! In the entire Realm Heart Great Land, several cultivators reached the final realm in the Dao of Void like Emperor Summer, for instance!
Nonetheless, the cultivator who had the highest attainments in the Mirage and Illusory Realm within the Realm Heart Great Land merely reached the level-two Cosmos God Realm.
The group of Cosmos Gods felt complicated. Many thoughts began flashing through their minds as they felt complicated. Old Monster Stone slightly shook his head.
He was used to it.
After an era, most of these young fellows would no longer be around.
“Senior Stone.” Xue Ying began, “Does senior know about the Great Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique?”
Old Monster Stone nodded: “I’ve lived until now, and have met quite a few outsiders who came to our Origin World by relying on the ‘Great Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique’. I’ve chatted with some of them before too.”
“If I were to grasp the Great Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique, bringing others to another Origin World, would it be possible for me to return after the next era emerges in my hometown?” Xue Ying asked.
“One, the Great Destruction Realm Teleportation is very hard to grasp, and yet you think of bringing someone with you?” Old Monster Stone sneered with a shake of his head, “According to my understanding, bringing someone else with you on a Great Destruction Realm Teleportation is extremely difficult.”
“Two, if you were to leave, once the next era emerges after the destruction of the Primal Chaos Void, you would be an outsider after returning, and will be repulsed.” Old Monster Stone said, “Unless you are like I and Sacred Master who survived through the Great Apocalypse. When the new Primal Chaos Void forms, we will be part of the era. That is why we do not get repulsed.”
“Repulsed?” Xue Ying softly nodded.
The moment he got repulsed and suppressed, he would only be able to exert strength at the Primal Chaos Realm at most.
But his avatars could still continue cultivating in the Realm Heart Great Land! As for his wife and others, it did not mean much if their maximum strength was limited to the Primal Chaos Realm too.
‘The question is if I could bring others with me when I use the Great Destruction Realm Teleportation.’ Xue Ying thought. It should be the case that he could barely do it after reaching the final realm in the Dao of Void.
Ancestor Sorcerer asked, “Would it be possible to bring people along the Eden Treasures, inner cosmos, and other inner spatial methods? Could they survive through the Great Apocalypse if that’s the case?”
“If I could do it, I would not have lost all my disciples from the previous few eras.” Old Monster Stone shook his head, “The Great Apocalypse of the Primal Chaos Void occurred when the Supreme Law engulfed all living beings, wiping them out totally. Unless of course if you hide outside the Origin World, at a location where the Supreme Law could not touch you.”
Ancestor Sorcerer softly nodded. He was slightly sad.
He had guessed it, albeit he was feeling unwilling.
Even if he fortuitously reached the final realm, what about the others whom he was close with?
‘Unless I can only survive by myself after reaching the final realm?’ Ancestor Sorcerer then thought of how lonely Old Monster Stone and Sacred Master were, causing him to feel a chill in his heart.
“Properly cultivate for now.”
“There isn’t much time left. In my opinion, Dong Bo Xue Ying and Swordmaster, the two of you cultivate quite fast, and there exists a strand of hope for both of you. It is quite impossible for the others, but who knows if a miracle might happen.” Old Monster Stone sighed, “Alright, concentrate on cultivating then. I hope there could be someone who can stand there with me watching the Great Apocalypse happen and watching as a new world emerges.”
Saying that, Old Monster Stone turned around and left.
He went back to slumber in the Primitive Sun Star.
And the Cosmos Gods that were present felt complex. Swordmaster and Xue Ying were both recognized as people with ‘a strand’ of hope. As for others, it was practically impossible.
Ancient Sacred World.
On the black stone bed, Sacred Master sat there cross-legged. His eyes were shut close.
Currently, he was calm. Nevertheless, many thoughts flashed through his mind.
‘Currently, in this era, it seems there are more and more experts appearing. I could not even capture that mysterious expert despite him entering my Ancient Sacred World. It is even harder for me to acquire his cultivation technique. Even when it is the Great Apocalypse, the energy accumulated for my Ancient Sacred Incarnation is too little. It could be considered my loss in this era.’
‘I think it’ll be better for me to focus on the next era! By then, I shall strive for it again.’
Sacred Master continued meditating and cultivating.
After that battle in the Ancient Sacred World, Sacred Master became even more low-profile. And just like this, 10 billion years passed peacefully.
And in the Realm Heart Great Land.
Southern Cloud Nation. The name of Monarch Flying Snow became famous. His name shook across the Black Devil Four Nations. None dared to rile him up. Xue Ying had remained in cultivation since his hometown Primal Chaos Void was continually expanding, moving closer and closer to the ‘Great Apocalypse’. That colossal ship–his hometown–was gradually sinking. That made Xue Ying not dare to relax at all. He had to reach the final realm before the Great Apocalypse!
“Chi chi chi~”
Within a newly-constructed meditation room, a flask of wine was being warmed. The white-robed young man Xue Ying sat there drinking as he pondered.
Surrounding him were many art-like worlds. They would, at times, emerge and at times, get annihilated.
“Mn? What happened?”
Suddenly, an unseen ripple swept across the world. It directly permeated into the meditation room and swept across Xue Ying. Even though the fluctuations felt profound, Xue Ying could still sense it. At the same time, he felt his heart shaking and a terror borne from his instinct.
