Chapter 1150: Void Fire Lotus Flower

Xue Ying chuckled: “Since Summer Wind Ancient Nation wants to monopolize this scripture and forbid me from imparting to others, my price will naturally be different.”
“State it.” Emperor Summer looked down calmly.
Emperor Summer, Emperor Cang, and Ancestor Fan had made preparations to get ripped of. No matter how much they paid, it would be worth it! At least this scripture would belong to the Summer Wind Ancient Nation from then on!
“Firstly, 50,000 kilograms of Chaotic Origin Sand!” Xue Ying directly declared to the three unparalleled existences.
Even though Emperor Summer and the others were prepared, they still felt their cheeks twitching from the demand, and their hearts sinking.
“Do you know how rare the Chaotic Origin Sand is? I can occasionally get some from the higher dimension as I forage for the Essence of Chaotic Origin.” Emperor Summer spoke solemnly, “Every grit of Chaotic Origin Sand is very hard to get and you want a total of 50,000 kilograms? Adding up the Chaotic Origin Sand in the entire Realm Heart Great Land, the total amount is only slightly more than that.”
With the reputation of vaguely being the number one expert in Realm Heart Great Land, for Emperor Summer to haggle over the price showed how frightening Xue Ying’s demand was!
Because the total amount of ‘Chaotic Origin Sand’ collected by the Summer Wind Ancient Nation was much lesser than the required 50,000 kilograms!
“If you plan to monopolize the scripture, this 50,000 kilograms of Chaotic Origin Sand is a must.” Xue Ying uttered, “There must not be one gram less! Otherwise, I will simply sell this scripture to other ancient nation so that I can collect more Chaotic Origin Sand.”
Emperor Summer was startled when he heard: “Why do you want the Chaotic Origin Sand? Is it because you had some comprehensions over the Chaotic Origin Energy?”
“It’s all thanks to Emperor Summer’s <Chaotic Origin Dao Scroll>.” Xue Ying deliberately answered. He did not wish to publicize his <Chaotic Origin Seven Strikes>.
“Emperor Summer, Ancestor Fan, and Emperor Cang, I believe the three of you should know that it would not be hard for me to gather 50,000 kilograms of Chaotic Origin Sand if I were to sell this Mirage Scripture to other ancient nations.” Xue Ying chuckled, “This is something I have to get. Otherwise, let’s not conduct this transaction.”
The three unparalleled existences hesitated.
“How? Our Summer Wind Ancient Nation has only about 25,000 kilograms of Chaotic Origin Sand in total. This is also because I am a Dao of Void expert and would frequently spend my time collecting the Essence of Chaotic Origin. Only then could our Summer Wind Ancient Nation accumulate to this amount of Chaotic Origin Sand.” Emperor Summer transmitted, “I don’t think we have sufficient time to gather 50,000 kilograms. We have to purchase it from other ancient nations.”
“Drifter has a relatively good relationship with me.” Ancestor Fan transmitted, “He is also an expert who reached the final realm in the Dao of Void. He should have collected quite a lot of Chaotic Origin Sand. I’ll seek him to purchase some. Also, we can try to purchase as much as we could from the Myriad Realms Ancient Nation and Icy Snow Ancient Nation! Those three old chaps from the Icy Snow Ancient Nation have powerful bodies. They should have been spending their time collecting the Essence of Chaotic Origin from the higher dimension, and I believe they should have accumulated quite a lot of Chaotic Origin Sand too.”
“Mm, that’s decided then.” They made their decisions there and then.
Chaotic Origin Sand.
There weren’t many known uses in the Realm Heart Great Land! It’s only because of the difficulty in collecting it that made its price sky-high! If Xue Ying required 10,000 kilograms, Emperor Summer could simply give him. But a total of 50,000 kilograms? That would practically consume the majority Chaotic Origin Sand reserves in the entire Realm Heart Great Land!
“I need time to gather the Chaotic Origin Sand.” Emperor Summer stated, “But I assure you that I can give you the amount within 100 million years.”
“Good.” Xue Ying revealed a joyous look.
This was something he had to have.
Almost 99% of the materials required to refine the weapon for the <Chaotic Origin Seven Strikes> comprised of the Chaotic Origin Sand. The remaining supporting ingredients were instead relatively simple to get. The reason why Chaotic Origin Sand had been used as the main ingredient was as stated from the accompanying refining technique from the <Chaotic Origin Seven Strikes> scripture: it would improve the user’s control of the Chaotic Origin Energy by a hundred to a thousand times. Thus, it would enable the user to execute techniques more profound than what he could with his current realm.
This weapon was a form of intermediary that improved his control over the Chaotic Origin Energy.
“What else do you want?” Emperor Summer asked. They did not believe that Xue Ying would only request for this.
“A weapon.” Xue Ying chuckled.
Even if he gathered all ingredients for refining the Chaotic Origin God Weapon, he still had to refine it slowly over a long period.
And in the future when he wielded a Chaotic Origin God Weapon that significantly boosted his strength, it might incur the suspicions from other unparalleled existences, one that would bring new twists and turns. After all, Xue Ying could not overestimate the ‘bottom line’ of these unparalleled existences. Unparalleled existences were willing to jointly attack a cultivator when they wanted to. Hence, he had to have another piece of a powerful weapon, firstly to improve his strength and secondly, to ease the ‘understanding’ in these unparalleled existences about why he was so powerful.
“That ‘Void Fire Lotus Flower’ which you refined, Emperor Summer.” Xue Ying smiled.
“Void Fire Lotus Flower?” Emperor Summer frowned, “Your demands are really harsh!”
“I do not have a choice. I no longer have a weapon with me, so now I need a piece of powerful top-graded secret treasure.” Xue Ying laughed.
Void Fire Lotus Flower!
That was the most suitable top-graded secret treasure for his Dao of Void in the entire Realm Heart Great Land! One had to know that top-graded secret treasures had their differences. Those meant for survival were naturally the most expensive. As for the Void Fire Lotus Flower, one could be used to purchase two to three ‘Twin Realm Blades’. With this top-graded secret treasure accompanied by his nine great avatars, his strength would naturally be different.
“I can promise you this.” Emperor Summer said, “But this should be about there.”
“No, it is still insufficient.” Xue Ying shook his head, “If I were to sell this scripture to several ancient nations, I can gain more benefits.”
Emperor Summer, Ancestor Fan, and Emperor Cang felt their heart aching.
50,000 kilograms of Chaotic Origin Sand was something they could only gather by exchanging treasures with other ancient nations. This alone formed a huge bulk of the price. In addition, they would be exchanging an extremely precious piece of World-Related Void secret treasure–the ‘Void Fire Lotus Flower’.
“I want to cultivate under the Burning Heart God Tree for one trillion years.” Xue Ying said.
Ancestor Fan let out a sigh of relief.
Don’t think that cultivating under the Burning Heart God Tree was very expensive–requiring 10,000 contribution points for every 100 million years of cultivation. In reality, cultivating underneath the Burning Heart God Tree would bring no harm to the God Tree. One trillion years was merely some time and it would not incur a huge loss to the Summer Wind Ancient Nation.
“And the final request.” Xue Ying chuckled, “500,000 contribution points! I have lost too much in the Realm Heart God Palace. Hence, I require some contribution points. That’s all. Emperor Summer, Ancestor Fan, and Emperor Cang, these are all my demands. If you all agree to it, this Mirage Scripture will henceforth belong to the Summer Wind Ancient Nation! If Summer Wind Ancient Nation plans on imparting it or selling it to others like the Towering Sky King, you may do so!”
Even though Emperor Summer, Ancestor Fan, Emperor Cang felt their heart bleeding from the cost, they were clear that if Xue Ying sold the scripture to other ancient nations, he would be able to earn slightly more than this!
“Alright.” Emperor Summer and the others exchanged glances. After that, Emperor Summer stated, “Let’s do this.”
Xue Ying chuckled: “Many thanks, Emperor Summer, Ancestor Fan, and Emperor Cang. If I could fight for more benefits on my path of cultivation, I’ll naturally do so.”
Ancestor Fan also chuckled: “Even though you are quite ruthless in your demands, it is normal too.”
If the Summer Wind Ancient Nation was willing…
They could collect close to half the costs just by selling to Towering Sky King alone!
In the past, the price set by Myriad Realms Ancient Nation to Ancestor Fan had been even more exaggerated than what Xue Ying wanted! Even though the demands of Xue Ying this time were high, in reality, the ‘Chaotic Origin Sand’ had few uses. Hence, it was possible for the Summer Wind Ancient Nation to get them with a slightly lower price.
The transaction was concluded.
Emperor Summer and the others revealed a grin. Xue Ying’s mood was pleasant too. Nobody could see that the three unparalleled existences had attempted to capture all avatars of Xue Ying before this! After all, if all avatars of Xue Ying were captured, unless Xue Ying rather die than to give the scripture over, otherwise he had to give in.
“Also, this matter must be temporarily kept a secret.” Emperor Summer stated, “I require some time to collect the Chaotic Origin Sand. Before collecting the required amount, if this matter of the Mirage Scripture is made known to others, they would be able to piece the clues and know that I am collecting the Chaotic Origin Sand for the Mirage Scripture. This would increase the difficulty of collecting it by much.”
Actually, the current difficulty was very high already! Otherwise, Emperor Summer and the others would not feel so heart aching.
But the moment this trade regarding the Mirage Scripture was made known to others!
Myriad Realms Ancient Nation and Towering Sky Ancient Nation might not even want to sell any Chaotic Origin Sand! Everyone wasn’t foolish. How could they not link the matters about Xue Ying selling the Mirage Scripture to the Summer Wind Ancient Nation, and for the Summer Wind Ancient Nation to collect Chaotic Origin Sand?
“Yes.” Sky-Rending Great Paragon acknowledged from below.
“Yes, I’ll certainly not spread this news as well. Furthermore, before Emperor Summer finishes collecting the Chaotic Origin Sand, I’ll not cast my Mirage and Illusory Realm Technique either.” Xue Ying guaranteed. He could not accept any losses since this Chaotic Origin God Weapon was vital to him. Even if he reached the final realm, this Chaotic Origin God Weapon would remain essential.
Xue Ying smiled to Sky-Rending Great Paragon by the side: “Sky-Rending Great Paragon, I do hope for you not to spread this news about me acquiring the Void Fire Lotus Flower temporarily too.”
“Oh?” Sky-Rending Great Paragon’s eyes brightened. He had some guesses, “Is Younger Brother Flying Snow planning on revenge?”
Xue Ying softly nodded.
Black Sovereign King…
Xue Ying could not eliminate Eternal Night Primogenitor! But he had never chosen to let Black Sovereign off. That time in the Realm Heart God Palace, there were only two who knew that he had obtained the Sea Domain Origin–one was Paragon Master Bewitching Sword and the other, Black Sovereign! Paragon Master Bewitching Sword was an expert from the Summer Wind Ancient Nation and was enemies with the Primogenitor Ancient Nation.
In addition, Black Sovereign even deliberately delayed for more time by spouting rubbish.
When Eternal Night Primogenitor came, Black Sovereign wasn’t surprised either! Hence, it was unquestionable that Black Sovereign was the one that informed this matter to the Eternal Night Primogenitor, causing Eternal Night Primogenitor to kill him. Fortunately, he had to avatar techniques. Otherwise, Xue Ying would have died!
But Black Sovereign was a Paragon Master and wasn’t an easy opponent. Even his current realm made it hard for him to deal against Black Sovereign. But now that he owned the ‘Void Fire Lotus Flower’, things were no longer the same.
“Black Sovereign is a Paragon Master. Furthermore, he has his Shadow Incarnation technique and isn’t easy to deal against.” Sky-Rending Great Paragon chuckled.
“I still have to try. ” Xue Ying smiled back.
Sky-Rending Great Paragon nodded. He knew Xue Ying had once personally witnessed Black Sovereign fighting, and knew of how powerful Black Sovereign was! Since he dared to do so, he should have some confidence. Thinking about this, Sky-Rending Great Paragon felt a jolt in his heart. It seemed the strength of Xue Ying had far surpassed his expectations!
