Chapter 1144: Peaceful Years
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Outside the main entrance of the Realm Heart God Palace, that group of cultivators who had been expelled awhile ago soon received a piece of news that made them speechless.
Emperor Summer had engaged in a great battle with Eternal Night Primogenitor within the Realm Heart God Palace. It produced an incredibly huge disturbance. Eternal Night Primogenitor had fought as he fled. Along the way, he even activated several forbidden traps in the Realm Heart God Palace. In the end, Eternal Night Primogenitor still escaped–he relied on the unique environment of the Realm Heart God Palace, albeit he suffered from quite a serious injury.
This huge battle had been witnessed by several experts still within the Realm Heart God Palace.
And the reason why this battle started? It was actually because Eternal Night Primogenitor killed Monarch Flying Snow from the Southern Cloud Nation, stealing away his treasures. No matter what, Monarch Flying Snow is a member on the side of the Summer Wind Ancient Nation. Since Eternal Night Primogenitor bullied a junior, Emperor Summer would naturally have to stand out! Otherwise, would it not make the other Honored Guests feel chilled?
“What a huge battle. It is rare for unparalleled existences to fight against one another.”
“Poor Monarch Flying Snow though. He paid a huge price to enter the Realm Heart God Palace. Furthermore, his luck in the Realm Heart God Palace had been good, to spend more than 100 million years in there, he should have acquired a top-graded secret treasure, allowing him to reach Paragon Master in strength! After completing the 12th stage, he even got a precious treasure, the ‘Sea Domain Origin’. What a pity that he lost everything before Eternal Night Primogenitor. Some of the treasures which he had with him, including the Mirage and Illusory Realm secret treasure, had been lost. He has definitely suffered from a grave loss this time!”
“That’s right! If I were to lose so many treasures like him, I would feel incredibly heart ached!”
“But it’s not bad already since he has many other avatars and is still alive!”
“So what if he could still live? He was a Paragon Master previously, yet now he lost his top-graded secret treasure, dropping back to an ordinary level-two Cosmos God expert. Furthermore, he lost his Mirage and Illusory Realm secret treasure too. Hence, even his previous capabilities have been diminished.”
This large group of Cosmos Gods outside the main entrance were discussing amongst each other.
The majority of them did not gain much from the Realm Heart God Palace. Hearing what happened to Xue Ying, they felt schadenfreude! After all, the relationship between the six great ancient nations wasn’t good in the Realm Heart Great Land–they frequently battled. Seeing a member from another superpower suffer from a huge loss would delight others greatly.
“What a pity.” Fire Devil Paragon Master sighed. Being a member of the Summer Wind Ancient Nation, he still stood on the side of Xue Ying. Currently, he did not envy or feel jealous of Xue Ying. Instead, he felt pity, “Hmph, Eternal Night Primogenitor is an unparalleled existence yet he disregarded his reputation to deal against a junior?”
“Monarch Flying Snow has suffered from a huge loss this time. It seems it would take quite a long time for him to emancipate himself from his losses!”
In the history of Realm Heart God Palace, there were cultivators who fell. All of them died because of other cultivators.
As the Realm Heart God Palace was a huge place, those with a closer relationship would usually travel together. If they entered the same region as other opponents, they would battle! But it was rare for them to succeed in killing other opponents! This time, Xue Ying was the only one who got killed in the Realm Heart God Palace. Furthermore, there was the recent news of how Xue Ying had become a Paragon Master expert, yet closely following that, another piece of news came illustrating how Eternal Night Primogenitor had killed him and taken all his treasures. This brought sighs of sorrow across many Cosmos Gods in the Realm Heart Great Land when they heard of it.
“He has just risen momentarily before falling. Fate is truly fickle.”
“What a pitiful Monarch Flying Snow.”
Whenever Cosmos Gods gathered in the Realm Heart Great Land, the moment Xue Ying was mentioned, they would sigh about it.
The majority felt sympathy.
After all, it was extremely difficult for those outside the six great ancient nations to get their hands on a piece of top-graded secret treasure to become a Paragon Master. Monarch Flying Snow had just risen yet on the same day itself, he was killed by Eternal Night Primogenitor. Fortunately, Xue Ying had other avatars in the outside world. Otherwise, if he died there and then, it would be more lamentable.
Southern Cloud Nation, Flying Snow City.
Within the Monarch Residence.
Xue Ying sat by himself in silence beside the lake with a warm wine by his side. Right before his death, Xue Ying experienced the full-powered move executed by Eternal Night Primogenitor with his scepter. Under the bombardment of the wave of light, he could not dodge at all! That terrifying power brought chills down Xue Ying’s heart. That was a true eruption of strength by existences of a level above Cosmos Gods!
Eternal Night Primogenitor relied on his supreme-graded secret treasure to execute this full-powered move. Under this strike, Xue Ying’s nine avatars were wiped, and his treasures were lost.
“Even though I lost a great deal, I gained the <Chaotic Origin Seven Strikes> during this trip. It is still a worthwhile trip for me.” Xue Ying was calm.
Even though he was furious from what had happened previously, Xue Ying could only put this aside temporarily when facing against Eternal Night Primogenitor. Calmly meditating and improving his strength was still more important! Furthermore, the day to the apocalypse of his hometown Primal Chaos Void was flogging him constantly, urging Xue Ying to reach the final realm as quick as possible.
“Xue Ying.” A figure appeared in the sky. It was none other than the black-robed Southern Cloud King.
“Teacher.” Xue Ying stood.
Southern Cloud King descended. He walked towards Xue Ying and sat down beside him. After pouring a cup of wine for himself, he chuckled: “I was originally worried that this episode might bring a huge psychological shock to you. Witnessing how calm you are, I feel reassured. Your heart realm is quite good–you are able to remain calm despite facing such a huge loss.”
Xue Ying smiled.
If everything happened according to what the outside world thought…
After attaining a top-graded secret treasure and a bead of Sea Domain Origin, yet he died and lost them shortly after. In addition, even his Devil Emperor Gown, Scarlet Cloud God Spear, Five Phase Beads were lost. This psychological blow would be tremendous! It could make a level-two Cosmos God go mad. Even he could not maintain calm and tranquil after that.
But in reality.
Xue Ying did not acquire any top-graded secret treasures. Instead, he relied on the <Chaotic Origin Seven Strikes> to alter his Scarlet Cloud Combat Technique and the nine great avatars. Only then did he become that strong. As for the treasures that he lost? These treasures were no longer helpful to his strength. To him, it was merely a loss of precious treasures. What he attained was way more precious than what he had–the <Chaotic Origin Seven Strikes> that could make unparalleled existences red with envy.
“It has happened already. There is no point for me to think about it. I am ultimately too weak.” Xue Ying said.
“Quite a few contacted you regarding this right?” Southern Cloud King chuckled.
“Mn.” Xue Ying nodded, “There are many who consoled me, and some invited me over for a banquet. Even though many sympathized with me, some even pitied me for my losses. But I reckon quite a few are feeling happy over my suffering.”
Southern Cloud King became even more astonished after hearing what his disciple spoke–how could he be so calm and open about what he recently experienced?
“What are your plans?” Southern Cloud King asked.
“What can I do other than concentrate on cultivating? Unless I should run over and take revenge on Eternal Night Primogenitor? That is simply seeking death.” Xue Ying chuckled casually.
Indeed, in the following days.
Xue Ying did not see any guests. He continued cultivating without showing off too much to the world. He even sent an avatar to the Fan Clan.
“Younger Brother Flying Snow.” Sky-Rending Great Paragon welcomed him, “I’ve heard news of you too. That Eternal Night Primogenitor is an unparalleled existence yet he actually moved against you in the Realm Heart God Palace to snatch your treasures. That is simply too excessive. It’s a pity that my Summer Wind Ancient Nation could do nothing against him.”
“I understand.” Xue Ying nodded.
There was too much hatred and grievances between the two great ancient nations. Hence, his matter was just a minor one.
“Sky-Rending Great Paragon, this time, I came because I wanted to cultivate under the Burning Heart God Tree.” Xue Ying said, “I should be able to exchange it with my contribution points right?”
“Oh?” Sky-Rending Great Paragon revealed a grin, “Naturally you can. 10,000 contribution points could be exchanged for 100 million years of cultivation.”
The Burning Heart God Tree was always there.
Two billion years meant 200,000 contribution points! That could be exchanged for a piece of top-graded secret treasure. The other party had a sinister heart.
“I’ll cultivate then.” Xue Ying did not say much. He directly stood.
“Go go go.” Sky-Rending Great Paragon sent Xue Ying over extremely passionately. Currently, Xue Ying still had 40,000 contribution points with him. If he planned on using it to exchange for some treasures, the Fan Clan had to fork them out. As for the Burning Heart God Tree? Cultivating under the Burning Heart God Tree would not affect the tree at all. It would only consume some ‘time’, just several hundred million years.
A white-robed young man sat down cross-legged under this short yet thick Burning Heart God Tree that seemed like a violet jade sculpture.
Time passed silently.
In his hometown Primal Chaos Void, and in the Realm Heart Great Land, all avatars of Xue Ying were silently cultivating. His strength also rose over time without others knowing about it.
