Chapter 491: Paying Close Attention

“This matter was, indeed, caused by my little sister’s misbehaviour. The fault lies on our side entirely,” Ying Gu Liang began. “If you truly wanted to deal with her, I wouldn’t find it anything but normal! I am, however, her older brother, so I couldn’t just watch as that happens. On top of that, brother White Sand was quick to act at that time, so the overall outcome was not too dire. Because of all this, I wish we could find some space to alleviate this enmity.”
Listening to the man speak, Xue Ying revealed a frown. “There weren’t any dire consequences? Indeed, that was because my Big Brother, the White Sand City Lord, arrived. Hmph, without him, I would have long since embarked on a path of endless vengeance!”
Ying Gu Liang paused for a moment before adding on, “You’re completely right. We’re truly indebted to brother White Sand; we have to show him our gratitude. In any case, I have arrived at this time to sincerely apologize, hoping to defuse this enmity. Your Highness, should you have any conditions, please state them right away.”
“You’re letting me state the conditions?” Xue Ying coldly said. “Alright then. Don’t say I’m not giving Venomous Ying a way out.”
“Just state them freely, Your Highness.” Ying Gu Liang let out a breath of relief inwardly. Since Xue Ying had conditions that could be mentioned, he could follow up with a negotiation.
“I have two conditions,” Xue Ying said directly. “The first is to bring out ten kilograms of Demon Bone Ash!”
Ying Gu Liang’s expression changed greatly at the sound of those words, while General Mo was sighing inwardly at how amazingly ruthless Xue Ying could be!
Just five hundred grams of Demon Bone Ash was valued at fifty million Deity crystals at the very least, while ten kilograms would cost a full billion Deity crystals! General Mu had no way to bring out such a sum, and not even Ying Gu Liang could possibly arrange that sum. Furthermore Demon Bone Ash was a very rare material and was relatively hard to purchase!
“The second condition is for the Venomous Ying World Deity herself to come kneel right outside my residence for ten thousand years,” Xue Ying continued. “Fulfill both conditions, and you can consider our enmity dissolved! Don’t say I’m not giving you a way out. I’ve told you the conditions, and it’s up to the Venomous Ying World Deity to meet them or not.”
“This… this is just…”
Ying Gu Liang laughed bitterly. “You might as well have not even mentioned these conditions. In the case of the ten kilograms of Demon Bone Ash, forget me and my little sister, even stage four World Deities would have to go through a lot of trouble to acquire them. As for my little sister kneeling for ten thousand years, considering her temper, she’d refuse it even when faced with death…”
“Great temper, you say?” Xue Ying sneered. “Have you not come to apologize? What’s the point in this garbage talk about her temper if you’re here make amends? I can leave you ten thousand years to arrange the ten kilogrammes of Demon Bone Ash, but the Venomous Ying World Deity must be outside my residence kneeling within three days! Hmph! If she doesn’t show up, don’t blame me for giving you a chance.
“Send them off!” Xue Ying stood up immediately.
The guards immediately entered from outside and turned to look at General Mo and Ying Gu Liang. The two, General Mo and Ying Gu Liang, traded gazes.
“Is there any chance that the conditions might be lowered?” Ying Gu Liang asked.
Xue Ying only frowned in response, while the two guards stepped in, “Guests, if you could follow us, please!”
“Let’s go, then,” General Mo said.
Ying Gu Liang helplessly exited the place.
General Mo turned toward Xue Ying and transmitted him a message, “Your Highness, there’s absolutely no chance that the Venomous Ying World Deity will accept such conditions. They couldn’t possibly afford ten kilograms of Demon Bone Ash, and it’s unlikely they could find so much of it either.”
“I’ve given my conditions. Everything is now in their hands,” Xue Ying replied indifferently.
The place known as the Nest of Myriad Devils was a towering mountain floating in the starry sky, shrouded in black fog and littered with venomous snakes. It was a well-known place within the Calm Sea Prefecture as a territory under the control of the Venomous Ying World Deity, an extremely famous figure within the Calm Sea Prefecture. It was not only her elder brother’s influence that helped her, but also her extreme proficiency in hexing poisons. In fact, she was said to be the strongest expert in the entire Calm Sea Prefecture in that regard.
“Delusional! He’s delusional! He wants me to kneel in front of his official residence for ten thousand years? Who does he think he is? I’ve cultivated for so long to become a stage three World Deity, but I would never accept his order and kneel before him! He could threaten to kill me, and I still would not do it.” The Venomous Ying World Deity’s enormous tail was winding around the enormous palace hall, and her eyes were filled with fury. “On top of that, he wants ten kilograms of Demon Bone Ash? What does he even think that means? Does he think you can find Demon Bones on any corner of the street? Is that ash so easy to find? Forget ten kilograms, I wouldn’t give him even five hundred grams! What’s with these conditions? He is just trying to humiliate the both of us, big brother!”
Her voice reverberated within the huge hall to the degree that it began to tremble under its force.
There was no attendant nor guard who dared stay there any longer.
“Ten kilograms of Demon Bone Ash? We couldn’t afford it even if we pool our resources.” Ying Gu Liang shook his head. “His Highness Dong Bo is indeed quite the bully; he’s essentially giving us no way out.”
“I’d never accept to kneel for ten thousand years before him in any case!” Venomous Ying World Deity’s eyes were filled with madness. “Very good, then. Since he dares act this way, let’s see who will be the one who triumphs in the end!”
“Little sister,” Ying Gu Liang tried to step in.
“There’s no need to say anything else. There’s no more turning back from this.” The Venomous Ying World Deity sneered. “Let’s see just how powerful this Dong Bo Xue Ying is! He’s still only a stage two World Deity, yet he dares be so overbearing? Hmph, hmph, hmph.”
“He’ll most likely become a stage four World Deity within a million years.” Ying Gu Liang sighed.
“What can I do, then, seeing how he’s not giving me any path to retreat?” the Venomous Ying World Deity angrily retorted before giving another sneer. “In any case, is it not true that he has yet to become a stage four World Deity? In fact, he isn’t even a stage three World Deity yet!”
The news soon quickly spread, though nobody knew whether the source was the supervisor envoy’s residence or General Mo’s Eastern Blaze Legion.
In any case, everyone was now aware that the conditions Xue Ying placed in order for his enmity with the Venomous Ying World Deity to be dissolved—was a compensation of ten kilograms of Demon Bone Ash and for her to kneel in front of the supervisor envoy’s official residence for ten thousand years. Furthermore, she had to start kneeling within three days.
Day after day passed, with the various superpowers from throughout the entire Calm Sea Prefecture Eastern Region paying close attention. There were even several powers from other regions who caught wind of it. After all, both Xue Ying and the Venomous Ying World Deity were rather famous in the entire Calm Sea Prefecture.
“It has been three days.”
“The Venomous Ying World Deity did not show up.”
“Let’s see how His Highness Dong Bo deals with her, then.”
“The way I see it, the Venomous Ying World Deity isn’t a fool either, having managed to live for this long. His Highness Dong Bo might have great potential, but his combat power is still just average, and he has no way to do anything to Venomous Ying.”
“Let’s just watch. Considering Dong Bo’s temperament, there’ll likely be some action soon!”
Various superpowers were paying close attention to every movement within the official residence of the supervisor envoy, watching out for any event.
Having begun recruiting people for the personal guards for a while, the official residence of the supervisor envoy had already filled up all its spots. After all, while World Deities were quite rare, there was truly an uncountable amount of peak Deities out there. At the moment, the personal guard was only recruiting stage one or two World Deities.
Day after day passed. Ten days, half a month… In the blink of an eye, an entire month was already through.
Even then, no huge movement could be seen happening within the official residence of the supervisor envoy.
The superpowers were sighing inwardly, and even the Venomous Ying World Deity, currently in an anxious state, was beginning to feel frustrated. “It’s already been a month since Dong Bo Xue Ying let out those ruthless words, yet there’s still no sign of no movement? Hmph. I thought he would do something drastic right away.”
Xue Ying took the initiative in coming out to the entrance of the official residence to welcome a white-robed plump man. This man was in the middle of stroking his beard when he saw Xue Ying coming out, and his eyes could not help but brighten. He let out a laugh. “Brother Dong Bo, I was sure you would have an immeasurable future, but even I didn’t consider you might become one of teacher’s personal disciples! And you’ve even become a stage two World Deity within five thousand years. Hehehe, I was shocked silent upon receiving these news.”
“Big brother, hurry up and come in. There’s no need to give a report whenever you visit me. Just transmit a message straight to me, and I’ll handle it,” Xue Ying said.
The White Sand City Lord couldn’t hide his jubilant mood as he entered the residence and swept his gaze around. Inside, there were countless soldiers walking around, with the ones wearing green armor possessing fierce auras of soldiers. “Right now, you already have a thousand supervision guards, on top of four thousand personal guards! On top of that, these personal guards of yours are even stronger than the average class two legion. Your retinue of soldiers could easily match an ordinary class two legion with of ten thousand soldiers in might. Amazing. Truly incredible. In the entire Calm Sea Prefecture, perhaps only the Prefecture Master’s personal guard is stronger than yours.”
“This could only be the case because of teacher’s generosity.” Xue Ying laughed.
The two continued chatting as they walked.
“Dong Bo, those ruthless words you’ve previously utterred forced the Venomous Ying World Deity to lower her head slightly, but she did not see it as any big deal in reality! At the moment, it’s not just the Eastern Region of the Calm Sea Prefecture; the entire Calm Sea Prefecture is paying close attention to this matter.” The White Sand City Lord laughed. “If there’s anything you want me to do, just say the word! I’ve always found that Venomous Ying unfavorable to behold.”
