Light at the end of the Tunnel
As Xue Ying ventured deeper along the stone road, he encountered many split paths. Everything seemed calm and quiet. Suddenly, as he stepped on a piece of stone tile, it sunk downwards, causing an overflowing force to erupt on his body, pulling Xue Ying in. The stone tile soon regained normalcy as if nothing had happened.
Deep underneath, in a dark cave, Xue Ying immediately pulled himself up after falling down. He looked around him carefully.
‘Even as that higher dimensional expert ‘Yuan’ left behind some opportunities to the weak, he had left behind many traps as well.’ Xue Ying muttered to himself. Comparatively, Luo City Lord was more generous. He directly bestowed a World Flower Seed to him. Naturally, this was because they knew each other and secondly, his hometown was rapidly moving towards an apocalypse. That was why Luo City Lord chose to aid him.
‘If I chose to take Ancestor Fan as my teacher, I might have an easier time now.’ Xue Ying mocked at himself.
But he did not regret it.
Xue Ying could not foretell when he first reincarnated into the Realm Heart Great Land that he would create the ‘Nine Rotation Undying Technique’! Otherwise, he would have become a core member of the Fan Clan confidently before accumulating sufficient points to exchange for an avatar technique.
It’s a pity that despite his current realm, it was impossible for him to prophesize what his future would be like.
Hence, Xue Ying chose the safer path and took Southern Cloud King as his teacher! At least he got the avatar technique in his hands early on.
‘The Realm Heart God Palace is treacherous! Getting a treasure isn’t easy even if I comprehended some laws of the place.’ Xue Ying understood this point. The difficulty of acquiring any treasure in the Realm Heart God Palace was extremely high. It was impossible for ‘Yuan’ to give an easy time for these juniors, ‘Even if I moved alone, it is hard to say who would get a bigger harvest in the end.’
Holding on to the Scarlet Cloud God Spear, Xue Ying carefully advanced forward in the dark underground cave.
According to the intelligence given by his teacher, one must not casually fly in the Realm Heart God Palace! Every movement made must be done under careful consideration! If there’s a path to take, walk along the path. If there were stairs, then walk along the stairs! This would make the journey a little safer. But for existences like Emperor Summer, Emperor Cang, and Great Paragon Fuyi, they were confident of dealing against any danger, which was also why they dared to fly.
Other than the most apex experts, even Great Paragons had to be well-behaved and walk.
‘This place.’ Xue Ying tried extending his senses, only to feel a majestic boundless power pervading the entire world. The region that he could perceive was forced to a small radius. Any further extension of the region would be blocked by an unseen power.
Xue Ying advanced forward.
“Chi chi chi~”
After traveling for an hour, he was still stuck in the dark underground passage, albeit a sound could be heard coming from the front.
“Mn?” Xue Ying’s heart became taut as he became alert.
A black shiny-carapaced insect tunneled out from the wall to the side. Its pair of little eyes stared at Xue Ying. Both of them were several hundred kilometers apart, and this was considered close to Cosmos Gods! Nevertheless, when it tunneled out of the passage walls, Xue Ying’s domain did not reflect any movement.
It instantly disappeared. At the same time, it appeared before Xue Ying, sending its pair of sharp claws against Xue Ying’s chest. Nevertheless, this figure gradually dissipated.
‘So fast!’ Xue Ying with his spear appeared at another location. Even though the suppression of the Realm Heart God Palace was great, preventing him from teleporting-Xue Ying’s Scarlet Cloud Domain was kept to a 50 kilometers radius after relying on the God Spear-it was sufficient for him to evade against the sudden attack by this monstrous carapaced insect.
‘The speed of this carapaced insect is beyond mine! It seems to have reached the offense power a second-level Cosmos God could exert.’ Xue Ying immediately made his observations.
The black-carapaced insect suddenly lifted its carapaced-wings.
“Chi chi chi~” Violet lightning began swimming away from it.
The speed of the black-carapaced insect soared once again as it madly attacked Xue Ying.
Even if Xue Ying could dodge the attacks by relying on the Scarlet Cloud Domain, given that the other party’s frightening speed had rose once again, this space of 50 kilometers was no longer useful. Just three moves later, the claws of the black-carapaced insect clashed against Xue Ying’s spear. The black-carapaced insect was forced backwards. Its pair of little eyes glared at Xue Ying.
“Hou~” It let out a vigorous roar.
“Chi chi chi~” Very soon, many other similar high-pitched sounds could be heard from the surroundings.
Xue Ying’s expression changed.
At that moment, many black-carapaced insect started tunneling out from all over the cavern walls-a dense number of several hundred black-carapaced insects came out from different locations on the cavern walls.
‘I’ve just entered the Realm Heart God Palace not too long ago.’ Xue Ying was no longer in a mood of enjoyment. Previously, he considered studying the strength of the black-carapaced insect, but now… what he thought of was not to get forced out from the Realm Heart God Palace by these black-carapaced insects.
According to the intelligence, if Xue Ying could not withstand through the dangers of Realm Heart God Palace, he would be teleported out. That would mark the end of his journey in the Realm Heart God Palace.
Xue Ying wasn’t willing to fail so simply!
His full strength was released. Relying on the Devil Emperor Gown, Xue Ying let out a full-powered Mirage and Illusory Realm. This grand illusory realm pervaded out in all directions. At that instance, these black-carapaced insects started swaying as if they were inebriated. Following that, they began falling one after another and could no longer resist! Furthermore, they soon tunneled back down deep into the underground cave silently and disappeared from before him.
‘Fortunately, my Mirage and Illusory Realm could restrain them.’ Xue Ying thought.
The Mirage and Illusory Realm was one of his prime killing techniques.
After all, even Great Paragons had to rely on top-graded secret treasures before they could become that strong. Ordinarily, there was no difference in their soul strength with second-level Cosmos Gods. Facing Xue Ying’s Mirage and Illusory Realm, most had to distribute part of their heart force in dealing against the illusory realm, reducing their strength.
As time passed.
In the blink of an eye, it had been 20,000 years or so later.
“I, I am finally out!”
Xue Ying finally saw the light. With his vision, he could easily see the end of the tunnel and the vast canyon outside.
Even though he was excited, Xue Ying still completed the final segment of this cave.
When he left the cave, despite Xue Ying’s current heart realm, he could not help but feel excited.
“I’ve been stuck underground for over 20,000 years.” Xue Ying turned back at the passage behind. This underground seemed endless. It was filled with many dangers, and Xue Ying had to utilize all means, using even some of his survival techniques just to survive until now.
‘Fortunately, I’ve exchanged two more materials from my teacher before coming to the Realm Heart God Palace, allowing me to train two avatars to the 12th level grand perfection in the Southern Cloud Sacred Body.’ Xue Ying thought, ‘If not for this, I would have been forced out at the underground.’
Many experts would enter the Realm Heart God Palace when it opened.
And the majority of them had a huge background. Those like Xue Ying could be counted with one’s fingers. But even still, few could obtain sufficient benefits even if they were from clans with unparalleled existences and had gotten detailed intelligence.
Xue Ying saw the huge canyon before him. There was a metal bridge linking to another canyon.
He immediately went past a small alley and headed towards the head of the bridge.
According to the experienced of his teacher, when one was in the Realm Heart God Palace, one had to walk through the roads, the bridge, and the stairs! Regardless, as long as the cultivator went along the path crafted by the creator of the Realm Heart God Palace, most would suffer from fewer hardships. If Xue Ying did not choose to walk along the metal bridge and fly across the canyon instead! He would have suffered from a huge danger.
Of course, Emperor Summer and the others could resist against them! But with Xue Ying’s current strength, it was better for him to obediently walk across the bridge.
Walking on the metal bridge, Xue Ying felt frigid. As he walked, unseen frost began permeating through his entire body from underneath his feet. Even if he had the pinnacle of void-ification, he could still not resist against it totally.
The ‘pinnacle of void-ification’ would be curbed most of the time when traveling in the Realm Heart God Palace.
Clearly, to this higher dimension expert who had jumped out of the cage of the world, the pinnacle of void-ification was nothing worth mentioning.
After covering through more than half of the bridge.
The boundless frost soon condensed into an icy mutated beast. He had a long tail and three heads.
Immediately, Xue Ying transformed into three.
The aura from the three ‘Xue Ying’s shot up to the sky. One of them had a spear and relied on the spear to execute a ‘combined technique’, causing a huge maelstrom to appear between the three ‘Xue Ying’. Their bodies began emanating a dimmed light, and they punched out simultaneously. At that juncture, the three horrific energy converged onto a single point.
Grand perfection Arch Destruction! Three avatars unity attack!
That icy mutated beast had a hard time withstanding against the Mirage and Illusory Realm already. Following that, a huge black gouge was torn before his eyes, causing part of his body to shatter instantaneously. The surviving parts had been destroyed by the transmittance of the remnant forces.
The three ‘Xue Ying’s all revealed a grin as they stood on the metal bridge.
He had fought for 20,000 years or so underground, and had already perfected ‘Arch Destruction’ and the ‘Scarlet Cloud Combat Combined Technique’.
The grand perfection Arch Destruction was originally a great killing move formed by the fusion of five branches. Furthermore, it was known for its great power!
With three moves and another combined technique used to fuse them perfectly, the power of this combined technique rose.
It would have reached the boundary of what third-level Cosmos Gods could exert, and that was also the strongest technique Xue Ying could execute currently.
On the bridge, Xue Ying encountered three waves of danger before finally reaching the other side. To the distance, he could see a palace hall.
“I’ve finally reached the palaces!” Xue Ying felt excited in his heart.
According to the predecessors, most palaces would have treasures, but they would similarly be more dangerous.
Xue Ying continued heading towards that palace.
An unseen ripple shackled Xue Ying, and following that, everything became illusory before him.
‘Another danger? Don’t trap me again like previously underground for 20,000 years.’ Xue Ying felt anxious. He had seen the palace already, yet why would he have encountered another danger?
The void teleported him.
Xue Ying looked forward in a daze.
This was an enormous public square. At the center of the public square, there was a ten-level pagoda. The surrounding square was covered in a white fog.
“This is?” Xue Ying was slightly stunned.
“Little fellow, the pagoda before you is known as the Chaotic Origin Pagoda. There are a total of ten levels, and you would definitely be able to get a top-graded secret treasure if you climbed to the top five levels. The higher you go, the more benefits you get. Every Realm Heart Order holder would gain this opportunity to climb the Chaotic Origin Pagoda the first time you enter the Realm Heart God Palace. This opportunity exists once in your entire life, so properly grab hold of it.” A voice reverberated in the mind of Xue Ying. Closely following that, large amounts of information related to the Chaotic Origin Pagoda began flowing into his mind.
Xue Ying was shocked.
At that moment, he understood.
Chaotic Origin Pagoda…
Any places in the Realm Heart God Palace with the name ‘Chaotic Origin’ were extraordinary.
And reincarnators that held the Realm Heart Order were qualified to come here only after safely getting through two dangerous grounds the first time they entered Realm Heart God Palace. This was ‘Yuan’, and he gave this opportunity to every Realm Heart Order holder. As for whether the holder could grasp hold of the chance, that was another story.
“Even though danger arrives very suddenly in this Realm Heart God Palace, it appears opportunities come abruptly too.” Xue Ying began hyperventilating.
