Chapter 310: Requesting a Cure from the Sky-Reaching Vine
Translator: Radiant Translations Editor: Radiant Translations
An earthy smell permeated the area, and a vast expanse of wild plants and flowers lay before them.
This group of eight—originating from the Deity world, the Temporal Temple, and the mortal world—was currently walking toward that towering Sky-Reaching Vine. The one most anxious among them was Xue Ying!
That was because his goal here was quite clear when compared to the other seven. T others would have to continue walking up the entire Sky-Reaching Vine, bypass countless dangers, and successfully reach the higher-leveled space. Only then could they attain the treasures which those World Deities backing them desired.
As long as the poison can be cured, I can fully concentrate on deducing the True Meanings. My True Meanings should all reach the stage three realm quite soon. The resulting increase in power would be holistic—I’ll most likely be stronger by an entire level than the Meishan Clan Master and the others. Xue Ying was looking forward to that day. By then, my combat power will certainly be strong enough to obtain the various treasures in Crimson Rock Mountain, and they’ll be significantly more than what Ancestor Black Wind acquired!
Why had Ancestor Black Wind not reconciled back then?
Why did he want to try again?
It was because he had been forced to leave Crimson Rock Mountain in view of an increase in danger.
Xue Ying’s combat power was much higher than Ancestor Black Wind’s, especially so after the surge that would come once he got his poison cured. He would certainly be able to attain more treasures! Perhaps they would even be worth more than the entire foundation of the Xia Clan!
Xue Ying internally felt uneasy. The Sky-Reaching Vine could tower above all else, but he could still see the peak from afar. Yet after walking for half an hour, they had only reached its base.
There, sections of the vine’s countless twisting roots were protruding out from the soil akin to huge snakes. Even more of the roots were situated deeper underground.
“This Floating Sky Mainland has a diameter of five hundred thousand kilometers and is almost entirely permeated by the roots of the Sky-Reaching Vine,” Chen Jiu said from the side. “Its spread was controlled by the powerful existence from the Deity world. Otherwise, the roots of the Sky-Reaching Vine could have spread over a much bigger area.”
“I understand. Isn’t it a fact that most people couldn’t even be considered opponents of that powerful expert?” Xue Ying remarked.
The eight of them finally stopped.
They anxiously looked forward to what would happen next. Xue Ying was even trying to suppress his current emotions.
On top of the Sky-Reaching Vine’s trunk, which had a thickness of tens of thousands of kilometers, a faint figure appeared. She was beautiful and had an outstanding presence. Both her hair and skin were green, and she was garbed in a robe made from green leaves yet remained barefoot. Her entire figure was emitting a comfortable aura. Other than her green skin, her beauty alone was something far above anything Xue Ying had seen before.
Furthermore, this green-haired woman had a very unique aura, one that others would find truly mystical—as if she herself was consisted of an entire world.
“Young Transcendents.” The green-haired woman descended barefoot with a smile. “I am Xi Wei. Congratulations to everyone for reaching this place. As per the sacred master’s instructions, every single Transcendent who can arrive before me will be rewarded. Tell me, what is it that you desire? Weapons, treasures, secret techniques, or perhaps to enter the Cultivation Eden? Whatever is it that you seek, you can ask for it, and I’ll try my best to present to you.”
“Senior Xi Wei.”
The golden-armored youth Wu Ma Hai respectfully requested, “I wish to view the Creation of Heaven and Earth.”
They did not dare to be impudent.
This ‘senior’ Xi Wei… was, in reality, an embodiment of the Sky-Reaching Vine. This vine could be considered a World Deity realm organism, and she was even one of the more powerful ones. Ordinary World Deities would not be able to defend against her attacks and might even die from them. Facing such an expert, how could they—tiny, insignificant Transcendents—dare to be impudent? Offending this senior would spell instant death. There would not be enough time for them to even feel regret!
“You want to view the Creation of Heaven and Earth once?” Senior Xi Wei laughed. “Brat, you sure do know how to choose! Enter!”
An undulation enveloped Wu Ma Hai, causing him to disappear.
“What about you all?” Senior Xi Wei looked towards the others.
“Senior Xi Wei, I also wish to view the Creation of Heaven and Earth once,” the white-robed young woman respectfully requested.
“Creation of Heaven and Earth.”
“I wish to view it too.”
“… Creation of Heaven and Earth…”
Most of them all quickly decided.
They did not hesitate in choosing to view the so-called Creation of Heaven and Earth.
Xue Ying was watching them make their decision by the side. The Xia Clan had gathered quite an impressive amount of intelligence over the years, and several outsiders had even traded with the Xia Clan before… Thus, the Xia Clan intelligence reports had several entries about the Creation of Heaven and Earth.
It was said that powerful existences from the Deity world could transcend all rules and laws, and that they had unfathomable power. For instance, they could sense the moment someone mentioned their true name, and even if they were countless measures of space apart, they could still kill the other party within moments. To be resurrected after death was something else, but none of the powerful existences, not even the most apex Deity weapon the Temporal Temple had, could shelter a Reincarnator from a powerful existence from the Deity world.
Other powerful existences could similarly create the heaven and earth of entirely new worlds.
The moment heaven and earth were created…countless Laws of Profound Mysteries would start forming…and that moment would be the best chance for one to ponder them!
Of course, it was truly hard for someone to view a Creation of Heaven and Earth performed by a powerful existence from the Deity world. What they would be viewing in Crimson Rock Mountain was actually a record left behind by the master of Crimson Rock Mountain! As long as one used their senses to observe, they would be able to see the scene of Creating the Heaven and Earth. Despite not being able to personally observe the scene, even an opportunity like this was already hard to chance upon.
Be it in the Deity world or in the Dark Abyss, to view such a record even a single time was something one could hope for but not count on happening.
That was because only powerful existences could go through a lot of trouble just to leave behind a record and would not devalue it by selling the record in public. Thus, Transcendents would only have a very small chance to view it.
“Brat, you are the only one left.” The green-haired woman, Senior Xi Wei, looked toward Xue Ying.
By this point, the other seven people had already been transported away to view the Creation of Heaven and Earth.
Xue Ying took in a deep breath before saying, “Senior Xi Wei, I would like an antidote…to cure the Six Ghosts Resentment hexing poison in my body!”
“Antidote?” the green-haired woman, Senior Xi Wei, nodded. “Six Ghosts Resentment can only be refined by a hexing poison master at the peak stage of the Deity realm. You all have passed the Floating Sky Island and the Meteor Bridge, which are merely the most basic of trials… The sacred master might be able to give you a reward, but this reward can only be worth so much. These rewards are more or less equivalent to Demigod-grade treasures. As for this antidote, it would far surpass what I can give you.”
“Even so, the Six Ghosts Resentment left behind in my body is less concentrated than the original concoction—I have only been pierced by the Sorcerer God’s saber,” Xue Ying hurriedly added.
He was also quite clear about the value of what he wanted.
Had it been the original form of Six Ghosts Resentment, he would certainly have no hope of getting an antidote! But what he wanted was to cure a weakened version of it, so Xue Ying still held onto a strand of hope!
“Little brat, I could see the hex poison inside you from a single glance,” Xi Wei replied. “You don’t need to explain. Even though it’s not in the original form, the antidote to cure it…still surpasses the value of the reward. I have nothing more to say on this matter.”
