Chapter 489: The Supervisor Envoy has Arrived
Translator: Radiant Editor: Radiant
Xue Ying was standing at the head of the ship with a few others, looking at the mighty legion right outside the entrance to the enormous city. To the front of these soldiers was a group of extraordinary World Deities, eight of which were stage three World Deities. These were in charge of commanding the rest.
As he swept his gaze across, Xue Ying muttered, “She really did not come!”
“The Venomous Ying World Deity is likely aware that the enmity between the two of you can’t be settled.” Jing Qiu giggled.
“It can be said that she has some self-awareness in that case.” A glimmer of coldness flashed through Xue Ying’s eyes. The Venomous Ying World Deity had truly acted too overbearingly back then, having tried to grab Jing Qiu directly away. She had actually brought him to the verge of wanting to contact Forefather Scarlet Flame and ask to become his disciple just to request his help! Fortunately, his Big Brother, the White Sand City Lord, had instead acted to stop her from doing as she wished.
Had the White Sand City Lord not acted, and had he not been a grade one True Meaning Transcendent, he could have only watched as his wife was humiliated.
In truth, Xue Ying still held onto some slight fury and killing intent toward General Ying, but it was not even close to being as heavy as the hatred he felt for the Venomous Ying World Deity! After all, General Ying had long since turned completely mad, and it was always difficult to tell what a crazy person would do next! Nevertheless, the Venomous Ying World Deity, despite not being crazy herself, had still been too overbearing. Her actions had stemmed precisely from her knowing that he was too weak back then, so she had no reason to even consider him.
At that time, the Venomous Ying World Deity had sneered to his face and said, “You’re just a small thing, yet you dare be arrogant in front of me? So what if you’re a Realm Lord? To what extent will you even be able to cultivate in your entire life?” She had not placed Xue Ying in her eyes at all.
Even this could be considered natural.
How many stage four World Deities were there even in the entire world? Every single prefecture would only have one or two in its premises! At the same time, the Myriad Flower Feast would only be held every ten million years, so the Venomous Ying World Deity truly did not think that Xue Ying would become a stage four World Deity. It only made sense that she would not care about him.
However, the natural law cycled ever onward, and the appropriate retribution for her actions had come quickly.
The Starfield Flying Ship soon began to slow down before stopping entirely. Xue Ying, Jing Qiu, their children, Ge Bai, He Fei Yun, Xi Wei, the military supplies officer Qu Cheng, and the Xia Clan Deities were all standing there. With a single thought, the flying ship disappeared as Xue Ying put it back into his storage.
From the distance, the World Deities rushed forward to welcome them, while Xue Ying’s entourage also began moving to meet them.
“Greetings, Your Highness Dong Bo,” the white-robed middle-aged man in the lead opened up in greeting with a smile.
“General Mo,” Xue Ying returned the greeting. “I’ve long since heard of your name. In the future, many matters pertaining to this Eastern Region will be up to you to attend to. My hope is that you, General, won’t see this as too troublesome. We’ll have to coordinate properly.”
General Mo was left startled at the sound of those words, though he didn’t show it outwardly. The first thing Xue Ying had spoken of…was that he would have to attend to certain matters? And he hoped that he wouldn’t find this matter too troublesome?
Incredibly, it seemed like this supervisor envoy truly planned on ‘supervising’ the place! In truth, any supervisor envoy faced huge responsibility. If Xue Ying was to thoroughly supervise the entire Eastern Region, the various powers from throughout the region would certainly feel their heads ache, and some might even furiously rebel! On the other hand, as long as he closed an eye to some matters, both parties would have a much better time. However, the first thing Xue Ying spoke of upon meeting him was that he would be troubling the general frequently. He couldn’t help but feel that something was amiss.
Even so, this supervisor envoy was the personal disciple of His Majesty!
“It is within my responsibilities, so it’s only natural that we’ll have to coordinate well.” General Mo was beaming. “The various superpowers from throughout the Calm Sea Prefecture Eastern Region have arrived, and they are prepared to welcome Your Highness.”
“You say they’ve all arrived?” Xue Ying swept his gaze across. “It seems to me like the Venomous Ying World Deity isn’t here, though.”
Some of the stage three World Deities were inwardly laughing. They were all excited for the show that was about to happen.
“My clan master is undergoing closed-doors cultivation, and before entering, she had strictly ordered for nobody to disturb her. Because of that, my clan master is mostly likely not aware that Your Highness has taken up the supervisor envoy role. Hopefully, Your Highness can pardon us,” a rangy man hurriedly said from the back.
Xue Ying glanced at him. “Oh, it seems like the Venomous Ying World Deity is truly busy. Alright then, let us enter the city, ladies and gentlemen.”
“Let’s go then. Time to enter the city,” General Mo followed up.
The mighty crowd of World Deities escorted Xue Ying and the others into the city.
Two figures were currently standing side by side in the starry sky outside Eastern Region City. These figures belonged to a yellow-robed woman and a silver-robed man respectively. The face of the latter seemed to be covered in various unique patterns.
“He especially called out my name outside the city during the initial welcome.” The yellow-robed Venomous Ying World Deity sneered. “This Dong Bo Xue Ying has not arrived with friendly intents. You’ve come to fight with me, but do you really think I’m afraid? Big Brother, you’ve been at the side of His Majesty for so many years, and some of your good friends are also under him. Can’t you make use of your relations to bring some of them over to this side?”
“Little sister,” the silver-robed man helplessly began, replying from the side, “I really am quite close with those brothers of mine. Even the officers in charge of the official positions have to show me some respect. In fact, you’d be fine even if you were to fight General Mo and the others! However, the one you’re facing this time around is His Highness, Dong Bo.
“General Mo and these other people have been stationed in Eastern Region for such a long time, and they aren’t qualified to meet His Majesty. Naturally, you’re already aware of this.” The silver-robed male shook his head. “But Dong Bo is different. He is one of His Majesty’s personal disciples, and he can directly contact His Majesty and report to him at any time! More importantly, his potential is incredible, seeing how he is already a stage two World Deity. It’s likely that he’ll be able to become a stage four World Deity within a million years. What officers would dare offend a stage four World Deity?”
The gap between any stage three and stage four World Deity was as vast as the one between the heaven and the earth!
While there were dozens of stage three World Deities throughout the Calm Sea Prefecture, there was only a single stage four World Deity stationed there!
“Little sister, forget this matter,” the silver-robed man continued. “I’ll approach some of my friends and ask them to talk to Dong Bo. I’ll try to find some way to dissolve this issue.”
The yellow-robed Venomous Ying World Deity gritted her teeth. She hesitated slightly before replying, clearly at a loss, “Do you really think this matter can be dissolved at this point?”
“We can try, at least,” the silver-robed man advised.
“The way I see it, there’s not much of a chance,” the Venomous Ying World Deity coldly replied. “Hmph, I am still a rank five official and also a member of the Bloodshed God Palace. Does he have any way to touch me? Even if he were a stage four World Deity, he would still not be qualified to attack and kill me directly. Should he truly force my hand, I have my own way to survive.”
The Bloodshed God Palace had its own rules in place. Just having huge combat power would not allow one to casually kill as they pleased.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying is certainly going to charge up to the skies, so how can hope to confront him?” The silver-robed man shook his head. “Whatever, just remember not to fight him. Let me think of a solution. For now, just stay away from him.”
“Big brother, you go ahead and find your solution.” The yellow-robed Venomous Ying World Deity laughed coldly. “I’ll lower my head for now, but if he doesn’t show me any face… Hmph, hmph! I’ve my own way to handle this problem.”
“You…” The silver-robed man simply shook his head.
This man was trying his best to think up a way to defuse the situation. His nature was clearly more amiable, or his network of friends would never have grown so vast. He even sought a way to completely dissolve this enmity.
There were many guests who had come over to welcome Xue Ying. Naturally, the number of gifts he received had also piled up to form a venerable mountain.
Everyone was already aware of this supervisor envoy, and they knew he was different from those in the past. His backing was truly solid, his potential great. Because of that, the gifts they sent over had to be similarly weighty.
The welcoming ceremony soon ended, and Xue Ying’s group returned to the residence reserved to the supervisor envoy. Xue Ying, Qu Cheng, Senior Disciple Brothers Ge Bai and He Fei Yun, and Xi Wei could all be seen in the main hall.
“Qu Cheng, make the arrangements for hiring personal guards. I’ll be starting tomorrow,” Xue Ying ordered. “Everyone must be a peak Deity at the very least, and there’s no limit to how many World Deities we may accept.”
Even if they exceeded the number of positions he had, he could still receive them as guests! After all, not all World Deities were willing to be part of the legion, with several of them simply wishing to find some good backing for themselves. Xue Ying was a naturally good target for such people, since it would not be long before he was set to become a stage four World Deity.
“Yes.” World Deity Qu Cheng respectfully acknowledged.
“Mn.” Xue Ying nodded. “Go on, then.”
World Deity Qu Cheng retreated.
Xue Ying then looked toward Xi Wei, who was standing to his side, and laughed. “Xi Wei, there’s a matter I’ll have to trouble you with as well.”
“Your Highness, please give me your orders.” Xi Wei was also one of Xue Ying’s followers now.
