Chapter 479: Prisoner (2)
Translator: Radiant Editor: Radiant
A tiny man was currently sitting within Xue Ying’s sea of consciousness. This tiny man was actually Xue Ying’s soul, as well as his True Deity Heart!
At the moment, the tiny man had a very tender and cute appearance, but his aura was becoming stronger by the second. Around him, a huge illusory world was revolving around the tiny figure, becoming clearer and clearer. It seemed like every single action taken by man was now filled with boundless might.
The world is me; I am the world.
Xue Ying’s Deity sea had long since opened, having reached the limit of the Deity realm.
Now, under the action of Xue Ying’s True Deity Heart, the mighty Deity sea began to change. The scene seemed similar to the Creation of Heaven and Earth, down to the emergence of Myriad Existences. The land began expanding; mountains were raised, followed by valleys forming and the vegetation on the plains growing. With the huge amount of treasures provided by his teacher, as well as more than a hundred million Deity crystals, Xue Ying could rapidly absorb the energy required to catalyze the transformation of his inner world.
The inner world continuously expanded until it became a billion kilometers in area.
It was so incredible in size, in fact, that without the exorbitant amount of Deity crystals, it would have taken Xue Ying a horrendous amount of time to cultivate and absorb the World energy required.
Hong long long~ Deep beneath this vast land, the strength of the surging, fiery-red Deity energy was exploding. The World Deity energy was becoming purer and purer, and it now contained the Profound Mysteries pertaining to World and Chaos Hole.
At the same time, Xue Ying’s fleshy body was rapidly transforming.
His Time Immemorial Body first reached the fourth level with great ease, while the Great Chaotic True Force made the jump to the third level unhindered.
Of course, both the fifth level of the”Time Immemorial Body” and the fourth level of the”Great Chaotic True Force” were now available for Xue Ying to cultivate at his current realm. He only had to spend a little more time pondering them.
I should leave closed-doors cultivation first. Xue Ying wasn’t willing to spend any more time in this cultivation session because he estimated that the blood-refined Deity warrior his teacher had personally refined for him was already finished! On top of that, he first wanted to witness the combat power of that prisoner, so that he could prepare himself better for the fight! As for secret techniques, he had the World Deity ranked secret techniques he learned in Crimson Rock Mountain, as well as the two from the Sealed World Pagoda, but comprehending any more would take much longer. Understanding the combat strength of his opponent would instead allow him to plan out a good method to deal with him.
Ka ka ka.
The door to the cultivation room opened, and Xue Ying left. Once outside, he saw a female attendant standing right next to him.
“Your Highness,” the attendant respectfully greeted while simultaneously transmitting a message over to Jing Qiu. “Madam, madam. His Highness has just come out.”
The light-blue-robed figure of Jing Qiu appeared right outside the room, and she giggled. “You weren’t in closed-doors cultivation for quite so long this time around. Right, this is the blood-refined Deity warrior His Majesty has sent someone to hand it to you. Hurry up and take it. The power of this spear is a bit too much.” With those words, she took out a scarlet-red spear. It was faintly releasing a terrifyingly high temperature, which caused even space itself to distort. Jing Qiu did not dare to touch it directly, yet Xue Ying felt like love coming from his inner heart for this spear, and his True Deity Heart even formed a resonance with it.
“Come,” Xue Ying beckoned, and with a sou sound, the scarlet-red spear flew over.
“Oh, wow.” Xue Ying grabbed hold of the spear, and his eyes brightened. “I didn’t even dare think this spear would be an upper grade World Deity rank weapon from the very moment teacher finished refining it.”
Most blood-refined Deity warriors that World Deities possessed had started out as low-grade World Deity rank weapons after their refinement. Normally, they would have to be taken care of and groomed by the user himself to reach the upper grade.
However, the Bloodshed God Emperor’s methods were extraordinary indeed. A blood-refined Deity warrior of the upper grade World Deity rank was that much more expensive than a top-grade World Deity treasure, due to its ability to increase in strength over time!
“From now on, you’ll be accompanying me in my battles against World Deities.” Xue Ying chuckled. It only took a thought from his part for the scarlet-red spear in his hand to disappear, having entered his inner world. At the moment, deep beneath the vast land of his inner world, there were countless strands of fiery-red World Deity energy revolving about, and amongst them the spear, floating and absorbing Xue Ying’s energy.
That same day, Xue Ying left Crimson Stone Courtyard alone to walk along the mountain range.
Over there. Upon activating the token he was holding, he immediately sensed it directing him toward a certain direction.
Turning into a stream of particles, he rushed right over to the target destination.
By going right through the mountains, he could reach incredible speeds. He would at times penetrate through space itself, continuously closing in on his destination. Finally, a ripple formed from an array in front of him with a ‘weng’ sound.
At that point, Xue Ying stopped still and went no further.
A new Xue Ying dressed in starry-blue robes appeared by his side. It must be stated that, considering his current level in the World Deity Heart, Xue Ying could easily form eight separate world bodies. Seeing how the prisoner’s combat power was unknown, this visit was nothing more than a way for him to get a feel of how high the other party’s combat strength was. It only made sense that he would not risk his true body for the sake of surveillance.
The starry-blue-robed Xue Ying took hold of the token and easily passed through the array ripple.
“Mn?” Xue Ying’s expression changed ever so slightly. What stood before him was now a dark scene, as well as a figure sitting cross-legged right in the middle of that darkness. He was bound down by two separate shackles.
According to the probind done by the token, this is the right location! I’ve been told of a single prisoner at the location. Xue Ying looked at the figure in the center. He should be the one I have to kill.
“So, you’ve finally come to kill me?” The figure said in a deep tone. He raised his head, on which two sharp horns could now be seen to protrude from his head. His entire body was covered by black scales, and his hands had claws as sharp as blades. His scarlet eyes showed cold killing intent.
A race from the Dark Abyss? Xue Ying instantly deduced. He understood the man to be a life-form from the Dark Abyss, and one who could become a World Deity at that. If using the stages of power from the Dark Abyss, the man was at the level of a Great Demonic God!
“Mn? It’s just you? A puny stage two World Deity like you has come to kill me?” The Great Demonic God’s scarlet eyes bore into Xue Ying as he sneered. “What a joke.”
“Joke, you say? There’s no way to know before I try,” Xue Ying retorted.
The Great Demonic God let out a fierce roar.
The terrifying sound waves spread out in all directions from the central position of the Great Demonic God, overwhelming the entire region within mere moments. The dark region now seemed much like the surface of a lake, upon which ripples spread outwards without stop; under the might of these ripples, the starry-blue-robed Xue Ying’s figure began distorting, much like an image on such a lake. He quickly turned around, throwing the token out of the region just as his entire body started to shatter.
The Great Demonic God sneered coldly at the sight of this before once again closing his eyes, going back to sitting cross-legged in silence.
Outside the array ripple, Xue Ying was dumbstruck. He had already guessed prior to entering that the prisoner would be very powerful, which was why he decided show some vigilance by only sending a world body inside! He did not think, however, that a single roar would be enough to shatter that world body. He had fortunately been fast enough to react, or that token might have been forever lost inside.
Sou. Xue Ying waved his hand and once again grabbed the token.
Such combat power…isn’t it too much? He’s a stage three World Deity without a doubt! In fact, he’s likely one of the more powerful stage three World Deities at that. Even with him being locked and shackled, it will still prove very difficult to actually kill. Xue Ying was speechless. What plan does teacher have for me? Is he trying to keep me from learning the absolute art until I become a stage three World Deity?
