Chapter 423: Young Friend Dong Bo
Translator: Radiant Translations Editor: Radiant Translations
The countless spectators that had originally been silent suddenly erupted when they heard this. Cheers, shouts, cries of astonishment, and discussions mixed together, immediately forming an enormous sound wave that engulfed the surrounding space.
“Too, too formidable!”
“This, this… I’m gonna go crazy! A single move! He beat it in a single move! And the Fierce Shaman Warrior even exploded!”
“He seems much more formidable than His Highness. This Dong Bo is truly very strong.”
“It seems that our Mountain Wu Star Field will finally have a chance to show itself this time around. I dare say that this Dong Bo will be just as dazzling in the prefecture’s bloody selections! I’ll definitely go to the prefecture capital to watch him battle!”
“It costs twenty Deity crystals to go to the prefecture capital though!”
“Isn’t it just twenty Deity crystals? How long can we live for as Deities? If we live far too long, we might go crazy, and our True Deity Hearts might crumble apart. For us to see our Mountain Wu Star Field finally reveal itself in the God Palace’s Myriad Flower Feast, I’d still find it worth it if it was a hundred!” The surrounding Deities were truly excited.
A peak-level Deity, under normal circumstances, would have a few hundred Deity Crystals.
As for late-stage and middle-stage Deities, they generally had a significantly lower amount! The price of ‘twenty Deity crystals’ for a simple teleportation to the prefecture capital was truly too high of a price for them. However, for the sake of seeing such a battle happen, they were still willing to pay it!
“Let’s do it.”
“I’ve been alive for thirty million years or so, and have seen a total of four starfield selections. Despite that, he’s still one of the most formidable experts I’ve seen. I thought that His Highness was already pretty formidable, but this person known as Dong Bo…has truly startled me! He’s definitely the strongest Deity I’ve ever seen. I definitely have to go to the prefecture capital; I’m willing to stake twenty Deity crystals just to watch the battle.”
“In the past, the Deities that did pass Mountain Wu Star Field’s selections didn’t have much hope of becoming famous in the prefecture’s bloody selections. However, I feel that this Dong Bo will become famous! He has a large chance of representing our Calm Sea Prefecture and moving onto the God Palace! In my opinion, he’ll get all the way to the final God Palace battle in front of His Majesty and many powerful existences.
“Ah, ah, ah, they’re actually from our Mountain Wu Star Field!”
All of the surrounding Deities were truly excited.
He was just too powerful.
Amongst the numerous spectators, the Soaring Cloud Lake’s young master’s expression had turned ashen gray. He even felt many surrounding Deities cast their gazes in his direction.
“Damn.” Jin Mei Yang gritted his teeth.
As he gazed at the distant Xue Ying, who was being politely led to the high platform by a soldier, he felt as if his heart was being gnawed on by countless insects.
“How could he be so powerful, powerful to this extent?” Jin Mei Yang only now understood that previously, when Xue Ying had fought with him, he’d been playing around with him from beginning to end; he hadn’t revealed his true strength at all. “Doesn’t this mean that I’ll never have the chance to take revenge? No, there’s still the prefecture capital’s blood selections! He might be formidable, but the prefecture capital’s selections are extremely brutal and cruel. There’s a possibility that he’ll simply die there.”
Jin Mei Yang understood that he wouldn’t have a chance to take revenge, but the vicious currents that flowed through him were looking forward to the day that Xue Ying fell!
“This way please,” the Deity soldier said as he led Xue Ying toward the high platform.
Xue Ying followed the soldier toward the high platform.
Seated at the uppermost area of the high platform was the Patrol Master and the beautiful lady. To their rear were several World Deities and the black-robed old man.
Below them were the ordinary Deities who’d passed the selections, which included Cang Qiu, the red-haired male with half a mask, and His Highness Seventh Mei Yu.
Xue Ying was also led to a seat of his own.
As they were seated according to the order that they’d passed the selections in, Xue Ying was seated next to the handsome, white-robed teenager, His Highness Seventh Mei Yu.
“Young friend Dong Bo is quite powerful.” The Patrol Master seated high above looked down at Xue Ying and laughed. “It is indeed my Mountain Wu Star Field’s blessing for such an expert to emerge. This time around, I, Old Guan…will most likely be able to show my face in the prefecture capital.”
“Haha, I’ll be qualified to boast to Army General when we get there. I can brag about you and show off.” The black-robed old man also laughed.
Both of Mountain Wu Star Field’s heads simultaneously praised him.
The other World Deities also began to praise him afterward.
“It seems that I have a decent amount of destiny with young friend Dong Bo.” The Soaring Cloud Lake’s Master, Jin Fei Yun, said, “I knew that this young friend’s combat power was extraordinary before and that my world projection couldn’t deal with him at all. However, it seems that I’ve still underestimated this young friend. Back then, neither of our true bodies were present, but this time, I have to thank this young friend. To be honest, my son has become much more obedient now that he’s suffered a few whips from you.”
“You sure are thick-skinned, Jin Fei Yun!”
“Doesn’t everybody know that? Young friend Dong Bo, you definitely have to stake it all. Who knows, you might even get through the prefecture capital’s selections. If that happens, you’ll be qualified to proceed onto the God Palace and participate in the God Palace Battle. Considering how young you are, it should be quite easy for you to become a disciple beneath a powerful existence.”
“When that happens, we’ll have to ask young friend Dong Bo to take care of us.”
None of the World Deities were arrogant when they spoke to Xue Ying.
Xue Ying could only cope with them one at a time, either by replying with a sentence or two, or by simply smiling in response.
“So much more formidable than all of us. We’ll most likely either admit defeat or die when we get to the prefecture capital’s selections, but this Dong Bo truly is quite formidable.” The number of people that had gotten through the selections was currently twelve, almost all of whom were currently talking to each other via voice transmissions.
The red-haired male surrounded by an aura of killing intent was an exception, however, as he remained as cold as ever and didn’t say a word to the others.
“Hmm?” Xue Ying’s hearing was quite keen, as he suddenly heard a light snort. When he turned around, he saw that the red-haired male was staring at him coldly.
This person’s killing intent is heavy, and his temper seems to be quite queer as well. Xue Ying had planned to interact with him originally, but he decided to give up on doing so altogether. He’s not worth interacting with.
“Your spear techniques are very formidable.” A pleasant-sounding voice transmission suddenly came from his side. The owner’s voice was clear and quite nice to hear.
When Xue Ying turned around to see who’d spoken to him, he saw that it was none other than the handsome, white-robed teenager, His Highness Seventh Mei Yu.
His Highness Seventh Mei Yu was robed in white, his entire figure spotless, and he had an aura of ice. His temperament was akin to that of a ten-thousand-year-old piece of ice, but even though his temperament was cold, it was as pure and clean as ever. His gaze was also quite penetrating, as if it contained no impurities. When making friends, it was important that both sides weren’t scheming something. His Highness Seventh Mei Yu didn’t seem to be someone that liked to scheme, and both his actions and words seemed to be those that came directly from his inner heart.
“It’s just that my strength was higher,” Xue Ying humbly replied.
“If it was just your strength being higher than it, that Fierce Shaman Warrior would’ve been able to complete dissipate it with its usage of the Laws of Profound Mysteries. Your spear technique, though, didn’t have its power reduced at all. In fact, it traveled throughout its whole body and caused it to immediately explode.” His Highness Seventh Mei Yu said, “It is indeed extremely difficult to block such a spear technique. Formidable.”
“Your Highness’ sword technique was very formidable too. Because of my great strength, using one move was enough. As for Your Highness’ sword technique, it’s unpredictable rather than strong. Despite this, you only needed fifteen strokes to defeat the Fierce Shaman Warrior. Both of us are good in different areas,” Xue Ying replied. This sentence had come from his heart, as he truly thought that his combat power was quite strong.
Seventh Mei Yu nodded lightly. “There’s no need to call me Your Highness; Mei Yu is fine.”
“Brother Mei Yu.” Xue Ying replied.
“Brother Dong Bo.” Seventh Mei Yu lightly nodded again. He might be proud and aloof, but he was still quite respectful when facing an expert. Xue Ying was clearly someone worthy of his respect from this selection. As for the others? He didn’t care about them at all!
As time passed, the selections continued. However, nobody else on the level of Xue Ying or Seventh Mei Yu, who could easily defeat the Fierce Shaman Warrior, appeared. The World Deities casually watched the selections, nonchalantly chatting amongst themselves as they did so.
“Young friend Dong Bo,” the Patrol Master suddenly said.
“Patrol Master,” Xue Ying replied accordingly.
“I wonder, which planet is young friend Dong Bo from?” Patrol Master Guan laughed. “Or did you come from somewhere else? If you’re from the Mountain Wu Star Field, I might be able to help your birthplace out a little, as part of being in the Starfield Patrol Army.”
Xue Ying immediately understood that the Patrol Master held him in high regard and that he was expressing his goodwill. He immediately replied, “Many thanks, Patrol Master, but I don’t come from any of the planets in the Mountain Wu Star Field. I don’t come from the Deity World, but rather the Material World.”
“The Material World?” Patrol Master Guan nodded in shock. “Oh, so you’re an expert from a Material World…someone like you is truly hard to come by.”
“You said that you’re from the Material World?” The beautiful lady next to the Patrol Master suddenly asked, “You’ve only cultivated for two thousand years, yet you have reached such a realm and are from the Material World? That means that you’ve refined its Realm Heart and have become a Material Realm Lord already, right?
At that moment, everyone present, including Patrol Master Guan, General Tu, all of the World Deities, His Highness Seventh Mei Yu, and everyone else who’d passed through the selections, turned toward Xue Ying.
A Material Realm Lord?
