Chapter 476: Stage Two World Deity
Translator: Radiant Editor: Radiant
It was true that the Bloodshed God Emperor had strict requirements for selecting disciples and was quite willful with his choices…
But he was still accepting disciples regularly! The Myriad Flower Feast, for instance, was still a method for selecting future disciples, as the event was considered a chance for the many juniors to shine! After all, the Bloodshed God Emperor himself clearly understood that even though it seemed like he was standing at the very peak, he was, in reality, on the same level as the Temporal Island Lord, and the Myriad God Palace Head, as well as several other existences.
He was strongest in terms of direct combat, but the Temporal Island Lord was unparalleled in terms of time and space. He could go wherever he wanted, and nobody could restrict him!
In any case, all of the existences standing at the very apex had their own formidable techniques.
At such a stage, having a good helper was actually quite important. He had spent quite a lot of effort on his disciples, both on Monarch Green and Monarch Gu Zang. A teacher-student relationship was an important tie. The Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master, for example, was one of the three grand elders at the moment, but if he were to reach the apex in the future, he might not necessarily have good ties to the Bloodshed God Emperor.
The stronger an expert, the less probable it was for them to be loyal to someone else. At that point, it was their sentiments that served to influence relationships more.
As such, the Bloodshed God Emperor had actually accepted many batches of disciples over the many years, though most of them he took in because of his mood at the time. For instance, when someone could move his heart, even if they were weaker in terms of talent, the Bloodshed God Emperor would still accept them as an honorary disciple! As for those he found better in terms of talent and more worthy of grooming, he would accept them as inner disciples! Even then, there were certainly a lot of disciples who disappointed him over the time, by failing to even become stage four World Deities.
People whom he truly liked and also regarded highly upon were few and far between.
But now, the Bloodshed God Emperor was shocked to discover that he actually had such a talented disciple!
“What stage two? Bloodshed, what are you talking about?” the black bird on his shoulder asked in confusion.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying’s True Deity Heart has broken through. However, after the evolution of his inner world, he became a stage two World Deity straightaway.” The Bloodshed God Emperor chuckled.
“What, stage two? Wasn’t it the case that this Dong Bo brat couldn’t even break through to grasp a single grade one Deity Heart? How could he suddenly have become a stage two World Deity?” The black bird felt puzzled. However, it joined His Majesty in extending its senses, discovering Xue Ying in the mountain range. Once it saw him, it could not help but gasp from shock. “It truly is…his true body’s Deity Heart had already broken through. He should have only cultivated for five to six hundred years, right? This…this is… Such cultivation speed is too terrifying.”
“Let me think…” The black bird began hopping around Bloodshed’s shoulder. “Over the history of the Deity world and Dark Abyss, the fastest person to become a stage one World Deity was Monarch Green, right? He spent three hundred years total to become a stage one World Deity! As for the fastest one to become a stage two World Deity, it’s probably that mad brat, Monarch Extermination, who did it within twenty-nine hundred years. He was truly too crazy, and his bloodlust too pronounced. He ended up dying prematurely without any hope to become a powerful existence. The fastest to become a stage three World Deity should be the Flying Snow Manor Lord, who spent roughly fifty-three thousand years, and when it comes to stage four World Deities, the fastest was likely the Temporal Island Lord at about a hundred eighty thousand years.”
“Except for Monarch Extermination who died prematurely, Monarch Green, Flying Snow Manor Lord, and the Temporal Island Lord are all very formidable figures right now,” the black bird concluded.
Bloodshed God Emperor lightly nodded.
His own cultivation speed was slower than the others. However, his position was still very high. That was part of the reason he was willing to give an opportunity to all of his many disciples.
“Let me take a more thorough look at his cultivation past.” The Bloodshed God Emperor swept his gaze in a specific direction.
His mighty power began penetrating through countless space obstructions and even forcibly pierced through the membrane of the material world!
It was commonly known that only the Temporal Temple could break through the Material World protection and reverse time so as to investigate different matters, while the other powerful existences could not do so!
Breaking through the protections of the Material World was very tough indeed, and it was true that ordinary powerful existences could not revert time within the Material World. Those apex existences, however—such as the Bloodshed God Emperor, the Myriad God Palace Head and the rest—could still do so if they acted personally. The only difference was that the Temporal Island Lord was strongest in this regard, since he had no need to act personally. The treasure he personally refined, the Temporal Temple, could do so for him.
An unseen power descended over the Xia Clan World.
The white-robed Xue Ying was currently sitting cross-legged inside his cultivation room in the Crimson Rock Mountain. Currently, his inner world was starting to transform…
Hong long long~
His originally billions of kilometers large inner world was currently expanding explosively in size. Its lands were stretching in all directions, and the seas were expanding as well. All throughout his inner world, huge amounts of energy were being absorbed.
Originally, this realm did not contain any kind of gaseous substance, and the trees and plants were strangely unable to grow or wither!
But now, after fusing in the Laws of Chaos Hole, the insides of the plants and trees were starting to grow. The cells within were being continuously destroyed while new ones formed in their place. The trees and plants were actually growing! As they grew, they eventually started to wither before finally returning to the earth and growing once again!
Countless forms of life were now emerging within his inner world. This life cycle was also generating gas and various matter, and air was now starting to circulate within.
“Mn?” Xue Ying looked upward, feeling an unseen power shrouding over him.
Teacher? Xue Ying immediately deduced. This was the aura of his teacher, the Bloodshed God Emperor. He is reverting the river of time to investigate what happened in the past?
As the Realm Lord of this world, he was naturally able to discover what his teacher was doing.
After it pierced the many obstructions placed by the Material World, the remaining power which descended was not very strong. Xue Ying could forcibly push this power out if he wanted to.
Knowing that it was sent by his teacher, however, he naturally did not dare do such a thing.
“This brat has even spent more than six hundred years in a time-acceleration environment?” Back in front of the Cosmos Furnace, the Bloodshed God Emperor lightly nodded. “If we add it all up, he should have become a stage one World Deity within nine hundred years, and he reached stage two within five thousand years.”
“He might not have broken the record, but he’s still ranked at the very front amidst grade one True Meaning Transcendents,” the black bird said with joy. “Monarch Green might have been dazzling back then, having reached stage one within three hundred years and needing only thirty-nine hundred years to reach stage two, but you’ve put quite a lot of effort into teaching him, and you’ve even fought the Myriad God Palace Head once in order to receive him as your disciple.”
Monarch Green had truly been a dazzling figure back in his time.
He was born a Transcendent with outstanding talent. He had actually grasped the embryonic form of a grade one True Meaning when he was still a child. After that, it didn’t take him long to grasp the complete grade one True Meaning, becoming a World Deity within three hundred years! It must be stated that the fastest person to have become a stage one World Deity before him had needed a total of six hundred years, a record put in place by the Temporal Island Lord. However, Monarch Green needed just half that time! This shocked even the Bloodshed God Emperor and other apex existences!
All of them tried to snatch him away as their disciple!
The Temporal Island Lord had accepted a compromise, while the Myriad God Palace Head went out to fight the Bloodshed God Emperor. In the end, His Majesty proved to be the more tyrannical figure of the two.
Before long, Monarch Green became the Bloodshed God Emperor’s disciple!
It was only natural that he would spend a lot of effort and time to guide such a pupil. As a result, Monarch Green currently had unmeasurable combat power.
“Congratulations, master! Congratulations!” the black bird shouted out. “For you to have gotten your hands on such a good disciple, and so easily at that! Even if the Myriad God Palace Head and the Temporal Island Lord were to try to snatch him now, it would be too late!”
“Haha…” the Bloodshed God Emperor laughed. “It’s still too early to say. Back then, that brat, Monarch Extermination, riled up the whole Deity world and Dark Abyss, causing two rulers from the Abyss to personally come over and snatch him. However, because his bloodlust was too strong, and because he was too arrogant, he ended up losing his little life.
“Dong Bo’s cultivation might be slightly slower than Monarch Green and Extermination…but I still like his personality most. He’s an upright person, full of emotion, and without any trace of arrogance or bad temper.” The Bloodshed God Emperor had finally understood the whole situation after reverting the time flow. “He formally accepted Crimson Dust as his teacher in the past and was likely worried that Forefather Devil would try to kill him before he had the chance to resist. That’s why he’s been concealing all information and didn’t even tell me about it even after falling out with his fellow disciples.
“He doesn’t place his dreams and ambitions on the shoulders of others, and he has plenty of patience to boot.”
The Bloodshed God Emperor was truly pleased.
As a truly patient figure himself, he was bound to like other people who showed patience the most. He had also taken step after step before finally reaching his current status.
Back in the Crimson Stone Courtyard, Gong Feng was sitting by herself, enjoying some wine. However, her cold eyes were fixed on a place in the distance.
Her personality was cold, and she held weak people in no regard. However, in the face of experts, she would suddenly become very docile. This was doubly true for whenever she met His Majesty, the Bloodshed God Emperor; she would be truly loyal and obedient. This was precisely why her teacher sent her around on tasks as his underling.
“Go out and bring Dong Bo here,” her teacher’s voice resounded within her mind.
Gong Feng opened her eyes wide as she respectfully acknowledged the order, “Yes, teacher.”
She then stood up and went out. After leaving her cavern dwelling, she released her domain to sweep through the entire Crimson Stone Courtyard. In her heart, however, she was still puzzled. Why did teacher ask me to find Dong Bo? No matter how I think about it, teacher should be very disappointed in him! Unless…has Dong Bo has broken through? Is it the case that teacher truly likes Dong Bo that much and wants to teach him again?
Mn, back during their first meeting, teacher passed two command tokens over to Dong Bo. It’s probably the case that he likes him quite a bit.
In spite of her confusion, Gong Feng still went over to find Xue Ying without hesitation.
Why isn’t he here? She walked along the corridor while inspecting her surroundings. She even used her domain to sweep through the place, but she could not find Xue Ying at all.
Right at that moment, four people walked in through the backdoor of the courtyard. They were Xue Ying, who was wearing an ordinary black robe, Jing Qiu, the Scarlet Flame Monarch, and the Dragon Mountain Emperor.
You’ve finally showed up. Gong Feng frowned. She could tell from a glance that Xue Ying was still a Deity! He had yet to become a World Deity.
You haven’t even broken through? Gong Feng sneered in her heart.
“Junior Disciple Dong Bo!” Gong Feng coldly hollered.
Xue Ying turned over to his companions and said, “Jing Qiu, you guys should return first.” He then went over to Gong Feng.
His Deity Heart had just broken through, but in order for his inner world to transform, he would still need a large amount of Deity crystals. He was not so silly as to do so within the mountain range. He wanted to first return to the cultivation room within his cavern dwelling to cultivate and let his inner world transform. After he did so, he could form World Deity energy. Before he went through that process, he could not be considered a World Deity.
“Disciple Sister Gong Feng.” Xue Ying went over.
“What are you doing, running around the place instead of cultivating properly?” she coldly said, looking over to Xue Ying with a strand of disgust. “Teacher has ordered me to send over, so it’s best if you just follow me quickly.”
With those words, she turned around and continued walking.
Xue Ying shook his head but followed behind nonetheless. Thinking about how his teacher’s power had descended over the Xia Clan world, he could vaguely guess as to why he was being called over.
