Chapter 1117: Trampled to Death
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Xue Ying was like a hunter, searching through Devil Monarch Wind Moon’s cavern-dwelling, residence, and other places he frequently visited as listed on the intelligence reports. He checked through them once through.
‘He isn’t there.’
‘This is the worst possibility.’ Xue Ying went to a restaurant in one of the smaller, desolate cities. He went there to enjoy good wine and good food while pondering to himself, ‘He is a level-two Cosmos God expert, yet just because of the opening of the Realm Heart God Palace, he became frightened to this extent? It seems he dare not stay at his cavern-dwelling and residence either.’
The Western Floating Nation was a famous gathering place for devils in the entire Realm Heart Great Land.
Other than the two Paragon Masters–Western Floating Old Ancestor and Broken Sky Paragon Master…
Closely following behind them were the Four Vicious of Western Floating–these were level-two Cosmos God experts. Even though they did not own top-graded secret treasures, they were not existences to be pushed around. Paragon Masters were only one level stronger than them. It would not be easy to kill these vicious experts! Xue Ying was naturally far weaker than a Paragon Master, yet he was confident of dealing against Devil Monarch Wind Moon.
And the reason for his confidence was the ‘Devil Emperor Gown’. This gown boosted the strength of his soul technique to a level that could threaten level-two Cosmos Gods.
‘Of the Four Vicious of Western Floating, Devil Monarch Wind Moon is weakest in his Heart Realm. He is the only target whom I have confident of eliminating using my soul technique.’ Xue Ying thought.
The other three vicious devils did not have glaring flaws in their heart and spirit; they were comparable to Paragon Masters in their willpower, heart, and spirit. They only lacked a suitable top-graded secret treasure.
‘Now it seems I have no choice but to scour through the entire place.’ Xue Ying was currently utilizing the Destructive Realm Teleportation technique to scout the area while drinking at the same time.
Using the Destruction Realm Scouting Technique to scout the area was the crudest yet most direct method! That time when Xue Ying searched for traces of the golden-armored lairs in the Lost World Corridor, he spent a trillion years yet he still did not complete searching for all the lairs. The ‘Destruction Realm Scouting Technique’ could only allow Xue Ying to peer at an area. Hence, it was tedious and slow, and this mission had a time limit of 90,000 years.
‘What a pity that I do not specialize in searching for traces of others. Otherwise, it would be possible for me to find where he is immediately by breaking apart his concealment technique.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly.
Like Old Monster Stone, he was very good at searching for traces.
Nobody could hide from his eyes in the entire Origin World.
And in this vast Realm Heart Great Land, it was so much harder for Xue Ying to find traces of a single cultivator! Even though he had Southern Cloud King behind his back, Xue Ying did not wish to trouble his teacher.
‘I’ll just slowly search.’
‘Furthermore, I believe there should be experts from other ancient nations taking up this mission too.’ Xue Ying was being very patient.
As time passed, it had been 3,000 years since Xue Ying started using the Destruction Realm Scouting Technique.
‘Mn? This devil?’ Within a small courtyard, there was a white-robed young man, Xue Ying, who currently was eating and drinking. All of a sudden, his eyes brightened up. At this moment, he was spying on a particular residence.
In the ‘Eternal Qie Mansion’ very far away from here.
Within the residence, in an underground prison.
There were many convicts locked here. Some of the prisoners were being tortured, and some had turned mad.
A luxurious golden-robed male walked within the underground prison. When the convicts saw him from their prisons, the eyes of some of them turned red from madness. Some remained calm and glared at him while biting their teeth. And the majority was cursing and scolding him indignantly: “Oh, Magnificent Eternal Night Primogenitor, I am willing to sacrifice my life for a curse, curse this Devil Eternal Qie to death! Curse him to death!”
“Devil Eternal Qie…”
The grievances coming from countless prisoners shot up into the sky. Many prisoners were glaring at him with hatred.
And that luxurious golden-robed male revealed a grin. He said to a subordinate behind his back: “Very good, continue torturing them. Make sure they grieve more.”
“Yes yes.” The protectors behind him respectfully acknowledged.
The luxurious golden-robed male extended his hand. His right hand expanded right into the prison. At that moment, many prisoners faced a horrifying devouring force. They felt their bodies trembling, and closely following that, they dissipated into powder, A concentrated soul force that was filled with grievances flew into the palm of the luxurious golden-robed male. It appeared as if his palm was an abyss, devouring everything into it.
As he walked, in some of the prisons that were filled with heavy grievances, he simply devoured them.
“Master.” A blurred shadow rapidly got closer from behind. He soon turned into a silver-haired old man.
This luxurious golden-robed male continued devouring. At the same time, he revealed an expectant look, asking: “How is it?”
“Master, the trillion civilians in that small city have all been captured alive.” The silver-haired old man extended his hand. On his palm, there was a golden wristband, “They are all locked in this Eden Treasure.”
“Good, very good. You have done a splendid job.” The luxurious golden-robed male revealed a joyous look, “The next task for you is to torture them. Torture them savagely. The heavier their grievances, the better.”
“Yes.” The eyes of the silver-haired old man were filled with expectations and killing intent.
That luxurious golden-robed male grinned. At the same time, he extended his hand into another prison. That prison was locked with several prisoners too.
“Devil, devil.” The eyes of a young girl were red. Her entire sect had been captured alive. They were all tortured severely before being devoured by this huge devil.
“Is it finally my turn?” The young girl mumbled, “I hate this! Eternal Night Primogenitor, Extreme Night Primogenitor, World Extermination God Emperor, Emperor Summer… all magnificent supreme existences! I pray to you now, this one is willing to sacrifice my soul for the death of this devil!”
When that palm extended into the prison, suddenly–
Under the excited looks of the protectors and the silver-haired old man, suddenly, that golden-robed male fell onto the ground abruptly. Following that, the silver-haired old man and part of the protectors also fell down. They no longer emit any aura.
All prisoners within the underground prison including those in the golden wristband had been forcibly teleported away.
In a wilderness relatively far away from here.
Many prisoners and the countless civilians in the golden wristband appeared. The seals on those prisoners were dissolved at the same time.
The prisoners who were originally filled with grievance looked in all directions. They only saw a boundless night sky.
“We are out?’
The prisoners and those civilians that were let out of the wristband were stunned.
Following that, many of them knelt down: “Many thanks, senior for saving us! Many thanks, senior for saving us!” Voices could be heard reverberating across the world.
They understood that it was a powerful and unfathomable expert who saved them. They were filled with gratitude since there were very few amidst the world that would be willing to become enemies with the devils in Western Floating Nation just to save them, the weaker ones! After all, the weaker cultivators were ants in the eyes of many powerful experts.
It was good for them not to bully the weak. But to save them just because? That was rare! After all, occasions like this were seen far too frequently in the Realm Heart Great Land.
Xue Ying who was drinking in the courtyard had a baleful look in his eyes: ‘Hmph, the karmic ties of these devils are filled with such heavy grievances. Truly unimaginable! They deserve death!’
The Western Floating Nation was a gathering place for devils, and there were far too many devils within! If Xue Ying planned on killing all of them, he might as well begin a war with the entire nation. Nonetheless, even the Myriad Realms Ancient Nation could not exterminate ‘Western Floating Old Ancestor’. He, Xue Ying, temporarily did not plan on being so high-and-mighty. He was too lazy to care about an absolute majority of devils since there were honestly too many in the Western Floating Nation.
Only those who were extremely vile and nasty like the devil called ‘Eternal Qie’ were existences who he could not tolerate!
Most ordinary devils were only more savage in their methods! And ‘Eternal Qie’ sacrifice a trillion beings just for every cultivation. Such devils would bring too much harm as compared to ordinary ones.
‘They deserved death.’
Xue Ying then threw the matter to the back of his mind. He continued scouting for other places in the Western Floating Nation.
Eternal Qie Mansion.
The Primal Chaos Realm Devil ‘Eternal Qie City Master’ had died. All prisoners within the underground prison disappeared completely without a trace. This immediately alarmed the higher-ups of Western Floating Nation.
“Shua shua shua.”
Many experts rushed over one after another. They were from the same sect as Eternal Qie City Master.
There were many different sects within the Western Floating Nation.
“Dead?” Three figures stood within the underground prison. They saw Eternal Qie City Master who collapsed onto the ground powerlessly, and the surrounding silver-haired old man and protectors who died in the same manner. Everyone had been ‘wiped’ by Xue Ying as he scouted the whole nation because he found how heavy the grievances were in their karmic ties.
“Junior Disciple Brother Eternal Qie’s treasures are still here. He did not suffer from any other injuries. Instead, his soul has been extinguished?”
“Mn, it is his soul. The souls of other people have been wiped out too.”
The three Primal Chaos experts looked towards each other. Their expressions changed. Experts who specialized in the Soul Dao were frightening. He could stealthily kill ‘Eternal Qie City Master’, and could similarly kill them instantaneously as well.
“Who is so daring to dare act against Junior Disciple Brother Eternal Qie? Hurry up and inform Teacher! We must not let things rest!”
“We will find the murderer and kill him!”
All of them discussed through voice transmissions. The devils of Western Floating Nation were all tyrannical. With an order by the Western Floating King, they even dared to pay the six great ancient nations a visit and mess up the place.
A male and female floated over. The leading green-robed male had a cold look on his face.
“Eldest Disciple Brother.”
The three present respectfully bowed. Eldest Disciple Brother was sufficiently strong. He was the only one amongst them in the same sect that had reached tenth level power.
“Have you investigated? How is it?” The green-robed male indifferently asked.
“Reporting to Eldest Disciple Brother, the murderer is an expert in the Dao of Soul.” One of them described, “He stealthily killed Junior Disciple Brother Eternal Qie and his surrounding subordinates. He then teleported away all the prisoners!”
“Instantaneously?” The green-robed male asked.
“Yes, part of the protectors are fortunate to live. They said everything happened instantaneously.”
“Eldest Disciple Brother, those who dare to kill our junior disciple brother should be killed! We must not let things rest! We must find out who the murderer is and kill him!”
Everyone shouted agitatedly.
Even though they knew the murderer was powerful, they had their teacher still! And above their teacher was the higher-ups! In the Western Floating Nation, they were the ones bullying others. When was it that others dared bully them?
The green-robed male snorted. His cold eyes swept across the others, “A bunch of fools.”
Everyone present was startled. Even the girl by his side asked in bewilderment: “Eldest Disciple Brother?”
The green-robed male indifferently explained: “Let me be honest to all of you. Several thousand years ago, the Realm Heart God Palace has started gradually opening.”
“Realm Heart God Palace?”
“Realm Heart God Palace?”
All of them were shocked.
Since they were able to reach the Primal Chaos Realm, they understood part of the legends in the Realm Heart Great Land. The Realm Heart God Palace was a legendary place! Cosmos Gods sought to enter, yet few could earn the chance to do so. For instance, Western Floating Old Ancestor and Broken Sky Paragon Master could not enter! Much less them.
“As the Realm Heart God Palace gradually opens, the six great ancient nations have their own contest over the quotas of entry. Over this period, they will set bounties on some of the great devils across the entire Realm Heart Great Land.” The green-robed male explained, “In our Western Floating Nation, only the most apex experts could be listed as targets of bounty. They would earn points by killing us, and eventually, that would determine if they obtain the slot to enter.”
“Hence, several thousand years ago, numerous experts from the six great ancient nations have arrived in our Western Floating Nation.”
“All of them are hunters… searching for prey.”
The green-robed male mentioned with a cold voice.
“But, Eldest Disciple Brother, could the prey of those terrific Cosmos Gods be exchanged for rewards? We are merely small characters, and why would they want to act against us?” The other four Primal Chaos devils felt their hearts trembling. They knew that every time the Realm Heart God Palace opened, it would incur a huge affair across the Origin World.
Because during ordinary times, those frightening Cosmos Gods would not easily find prey to kill since it was too difficult! Only during this competition for the quotas where there were sufficient rewards would they come. Most of the time, even the ‘Four Vicious of Western Floating’ would be frightened to the extent that they hide.
“Yes, their prey is currently the highest level in our Western Floating Nation.” The green-robed male coldly sneered, “But to these terrifying Cosmos Gods, killing us is just like trampling upon ants. Just previously, Junior Disciple Brother Eternal Qie had been ‘trampled to death’ by a frightening existence. Hence from now on, everyone must remain low-profile and be more obedient. Don’t stir up too much trouble. Furthermore, I suspect that the terrifying Cosmos God could be observing us in the dark, yet it is impossible for us to discover it.”
The four present devils felt their hearts shaking. They could not help but look around.
