Chapter 493: Completing the Third Boundary
Translator: Radiant Editor: Radiant
More than three months had already passed since Xue Ying became a supervisor envoy. By now, it was not only Eastern Region City—the entire Calm Sea Prefecture was waiting to see what kind of action he would took to deal with the Venomous Ying World Deity. However, even after so much time passed, there was still no sign of movement coming from Xue Ying. This degree of calmness from him left people secretly speculating.
“What’s going on with this Dong Bo Xue Ying? Is he so lacking in strength that he can’t do anything to Venomous Ying?”
“He can’t assault Venomous Ying directly. At most, he can deal with her if he makes a petition for help from His Majesty! But if he were to resort to His Majesty’s aid for such a small matter, his teacher will think him useless.”
“There’s no way around it. He might have boundless prospects for the future, but he’s still weak for the moment.”
Even then, Deities had long lifespans, so they could afford to patiently wait and watch. The way they saw it, Xue Ying had already placed down some ruthless condition on the Venomous Ying World Deity, giving no face to the brother and sister pair; he was sure to take some action sooner or later. It would be nothing more than a disgrace if he dared speak such big words but did not follow them up with any action. What mattered most was that he would make a move. Whether he succeeded or not was less important!
In a room inside supervisor envoy’s residence, Xue Ying was sitting cross-legged with nine golden beads placed before him. These beads were emitting streams of golden light, which flowed continuously into Xue Ying’s body through his nostrils. Inside his body, his World Deity Energy and the streams of golden light were merging together, undergoing mysterious transformations that eventually changed that original energy into threads of white colored energy. This newly formed white energy was known as Luminous Sun Energy! It was purer, heavier, and sharper than its previous form. His already existing reserve of Luminous Sun Energy also absorbed the golden light coming through his nostrils to undergo a new transformation.
Inside Xue Ying’s inner world, a large amount of white clouds appeared instantaneously. They were covering the sky above the continent, with each separate cloud having been formed through the condensation of Luminous Sun Energy.
Hong long long~ The Luminous Sun Energy flowing through Xue Ying’s body eventually permeated into his flesh, bones, and internal organs. It even went as far as to fill his most fundamental particles and combine with them. Through this new transformation, Xue Ying could feel the energy of destruction.
After cultivating for more than three months, I’ve finally succeeded in breaching the third boundary. Xue Ying let out a sigh. It really was difficult. Definitely no easy task. It seemed like it only took a bit over three months, but his real body in the Xia Clan World was actually cultivating times inside Crimson Rock Mountain under a time-accelerated environment of a hundred times the normal flow of time. It was only through the combined effort of his real body in the Xia Clan World and his avatar in Deity world that he could deepen his comprehension and cultivate the”Luminous Sun” to the major success stage.
Xue Ying continued his pondering. The next boundary will be even more difficult to breach. Even with my good comprehension ability, I’m afraid it will still take me quite some time. In truth, Xue Ying was happy to spend his time in cultivation, in spite of the difficulty of reaching each new level. By cultivating, not only could he obtain greater strength, but he could also deepen his understanding toward the Laws of the World which, in turn, would greatly help his future cultivation.
It’s about time I make my move on Venomous Ying. Xue Ying stood up and waved his hand to collect the nine Golden Fiend Beads. A long time has already passed, and I have yet to act. Did she begin to think I had no way of dealing with her? Hmph!
Hong long long~ The door to the cultivation room opened, and Xue Ying walked out through it.
Once outside, Xue Ying stood beside some railings, and from there, his clear voice spread throughout the entire official residence, “Commander Bai Li, Commander Jiu Qi, quickly gather our troops.”
Before long, the entire official residence of the supervisor envoy turned restless from the great number of soldiers gathering.
Sou sou sou. Like streams of light, Jing Qiu, Dong Bo Yu, Dong Bo Qing Yao, Ge Bai, He Fei Yun, and a few others landed near Xue Ying.
“Xue Ying, why are you gathering your personal guard? What’s the plan?” Just as Jing Qiu finished speaking, Dong Bo Yu, who was standing beside her, excitedly stepped in to say, “Father, are you going to deal with that Venomous Ying World Deity?”
“Yes.” Xue Ying smiled and nodded.
“Are you certain of your chances?” Jing Qiu asked.
“Don’t worry about it,” Xue Ying confidently replied.
“Father, take me with you,” Dong Bo Qing Yao said, brimming with anticipation.
Dong Bo Yu also requested, “I also want to go.”
Xue Ying turned to look at his wife then said, “Alright. I’ll take you two as well. Jing Qiu, help me look after them. Don’t let them be too impulsive or reckless.”
At that point, two imposing groups of soldiers flew over. Every last soldier could be seen wearing green armor, while the leader wore a similar looking armor, only adorned with more black lines. The commanders were each wearing similar-looking green sets of armor, but theirs had more complicated golden lines all over the surface. Each commander acted as the core of a formation of soldiers.
“Greetings, Your Highness.” More than two thousand soldiers descended, all of them respectfully greeting him at the same time. Their voices were so loud that it seemed to shake the world. Soon, the two commanders and the rest of the World Deities also came over.
“Mn.” Xue Ying nodded before giving his orders, “Commanders Bai Li and Jiu Qi, the two of you will lead the teams in following me. The rest shall remain at the residence, where you will listen to Ge Bai and He Fei Yun.”
“Yes.” The two answered in unison.
“Xi Wei, you’re also coming along.” After finishing the arrangements, he ordered in a loud voice, “Let’s go!”
Hong~ Xue Ying left the official residence together with his majestic troops.
“HIs Highness, Dong Bo Xue Ying is finally making a move.”
“He set out together with more than two thousand of his personal guard.” There were many eyes affixed on Xue Ying’s every movements, included those which belonged to the Venomous Ying World Deity’s faction. Upon seeing such a huge mobilization, the spies of the Venomous Ying World Deity quickly made their report.
Xue Ying didn’t particularly care to prevent that activity. He simply took his personal guard to the eastern part of the city, to a vast area belonging to the Eastern Blaze Legion.
General Mo was already waiting outside the Eastern Blaze Legion barracks. He was standing next to the gate alongside several soldiers to welcome Xue Ying.
Xue Ying landed in front of General Mo with his personal guard in tow as he greeted, “General Mo.”
“I’m afraid I don’t know why Your Highness has come to my abode together with so many soldiers?” General Mo said with a smile.
“It’s been a while since I took on the role of supervisor envoy, but I have yet to do anything worthy of this position. I felt ashamed that such a thing would happen, so I have come to perform my duty. In other words, I am here on an inspection,” Xue Ying replied in a straightforward manner.
“I shall cooperate with Your Highness. Please, be at ease,” General Mo complied.
“Let’s talk inside, then.” Xue Ying entered first, accompanied by General Mo. Jing Qiu, Dong Bo Yu, and Dong Bo Qing Yao all took a look at the barrack first before quickly entering alongside the rest of the soldiers.
“What kind of orders does Your Highness have? Please, feel free to tell this general,” General Mo said, humbly. It was a given that he would act this way; he had a high position in Calm Sea Prefecture, being even above the other four generals, but his personal strength was relatively low. He was unlike General Wu, who could be counted as one of the top stage three World Deities, and Marshal Qin, who was supported by a huge backer.
In front of Xue Ying, General Mo naturally took on a humble attitude.
“How many starfields does the Nest of Myriad Devils rule over?” Xue Ying asked.
It’s coming. The Nest of Myriad Devils is a force ruled by the Venomous Ying World Deity. It seems like Xue Ying is really planning to deal with her, General Mo thought to himself.
“They control thirty-two starfields. They are also responsible for the collection of faith in those starfields,” General Mo replied.
“Bring out all the records regarding the collection of faith done by the Nest of Myriad Devils. All the records, from the very first to the latest one,” Xue Ying ordered right after he entered the hall.
“Yes. Why aren’t you moving yet?” General Mo lashed out to his underling.
It only took a short moment for a high ranking World Deity officer to come over. Dong dong dong. Three trunks appeared as he waved his hand, and with another wave, the trunks opened. Each of the tree containers was filled with scrolls.
Xue Ying looked over the trunks, and his fiery-red World Deity Energy spread over and penetrated every last scroll. How fast were the thought processes of a World Deity? He finished checking all of the scrolls almost instantaneously.
“Interesting.” Xue Ying turned over to General Mo. “Is it just me, or does the Nest of Myriad Devils not have that much faith energy?”
