Chapter 495: Capture!
Translator: Radiant Editor: Radiant
“Hold it!” a voice suddenly cut through the void. The one whom the voice belonged to was the short man standing next to the Venomous Ying World Deity.
Xue Ying looked over.
This short man was garbed in black, and his voice was bright as he said, “Your Highness Dong Bo, I have come under the orders of my clan master.”
“Your clan master?” Xue Ying waved his hand to stop his subordinates. “Unless I’m mistaken, you are World Deity Dong Xiao, and your clan master is Monarch Wu Chen, right?”
“Indeed.” The short man chuckled.
Monarch Wu Chen was a stage four World Deity and one of the Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master’s pupils.
However, it was widely known that Monarch Wu Chen was totally engrossed in his personal cultivation, so it seemed to make no sense that he would send someone to protect Venomous Ying World Deity. Xue Ying was puzzled at this turn of events.
Xue Ying’s subordinates began to hesitate upon hearing that. A stage four World Deity was now involved! Any stage four World Deity could become the overlord of any territory he was found at! Anyone would feel restraining fear and hesitation at the thought of them.
“That’s right. I have come at Monarch Wu Chen’s order.” The short man laughed. “I also think this matter about faith energy is a misunderstanding. We just sit down and resolve the misunderstanding, don’t you think? Your Highness Dong Bo, how about giving some face to my clan master?”
“Is Monarch Wu Chen sure he wants to intervene on this matter?” Xue Ying frowned.
The enmity he shared with Venomous Ying was no secret!
Now that Monarch Wu Chen dared to intervene, trying to forbid him from carrying out his vengeance, was it not the case that he disregarded Xue Ying completely? Why would Monarch Wu Chen, who was always so mad and focused on cultivating, do such a thing?
“Since the monarch has said such, he naturally wants to intervene.” The short man frowned. “Do you plan on not giving him any face, Your Highness Dong Bo?”
To the side, the Venomous Ying World Deity let out a sneer.
“The Venomous Ying World Deity is suspected to have stolen a large amount of faith energy over the years. But now, the million people responsible for collecting that faith energy tribute are all dead. Such a situation is too strange, so I must bring her back to the Bloodshed God Palace for interrogation,” Xue Ying coldly said. “World Deity Dong Xiao, it would be best if you left now.”
The short man was startled, and the Venomous Ying World Deity just as shocked.
“You would dare?!” The short man immediately launched into a fury. “You would actually dare challenge my clan master?”
“Your clan master? You’ve asked me to give him face when he did not show me any.” Xue Ying’s eyes betrayed his fury. “Everyone, proceed!”
Commander Bai Li Shang immediately acknowledged the order.
Commander Bai Li, the commanders of the other ten teams, and the soldiers all began to activate the seals on their armor sets. For that moment, the mighty legion acted like a single entity. At the same time, Commander Bai Li hacked out with his greataxe, which followed a great arc across the sky to cut down fiercely upon his opponents! Hong long long. The axe was followed by the might of the entire legion. In truth, this fierce attack he sent out had already reached the level of an entry stage three World Deity.
The axe tore through the sky, and in a flash, it appeared right in front of the Venomous Ying World Deity.
In response, the Venomous Ying World Deity’s figure suddenly enlarged to an enormous degree. Her tail wriggled and twisted, and Xue Ying’s personal guard of two thousand thousand looked like no more than ants in front of her. The upper half of her body remained humanoid, and an titanic poisonous trident had appeared in her hands. At the same time, the black fog previously surrounding the Nest of Myriad Devils came rolling forward to envelop her body.
This was her territory, which she fortified by setting down numerous arrays, strengthening it greatly over the years. Her combat power here was much more powerful than normal! Normally, she could not fight a head-on battle, but as long as she remained within her territory, her combat prowess in close quarters combat was tremendously larger. Every single action she took was backed by incredible might.
“Scram.” The Venomous Ying World Deity hurled her tail over.
The tail moved through the void along an arc in a tyrannical fashion, intercepting the incoming axe. At the sight, Commander Bai Li’s expression changed slightly. At the same time, all of the soldiers, including him, retreated a small amount under the backlash.
“Mn?” Xue Ying frowned. “The way I’ve heard it, this Venomous Ying shouldn’t be any good in close-combat battles, since her specialty is hexing poison. To think she could actually fight this thousand-strong legion, and even push them back… Looks like the arrays set down on her territory have truly strengthened her by quite a bit.”
Commander Bai Li he brought along the soldiers under his command under another joint attack.
“You can all get lost!” The Venomous Ying World Deity waved her poisonous trident in a savage, mighty strike. After the impact, the personal guards were left dispersed all over the place. The ordinary soldiers had been flung backward, smashing against the mountainy rocks of the distant Nest of Myriad Devils, while several were hurled all the way into the void. Even so, with the army array enhancement provided by the Bloodshed God Palace, these people with combat power of new World Deities could all display the might of a true World Deity. The impact of this attack they had just received had been spread through the entire array, allowing everyone to remain uninjured.
“Your Highness, this Venomous Ying World Deity’s is too strong in close combat. We can’t deal with her,” Commander Bai Li anxiously transmitted a message.
Xue Ying’s personal guard could merely match the might of any ordinary stage three World Deity.
But now, under the strengthening effect of the arrays set down on her territory, the Venomous Ying World Deity could unleash a tyrannical power comparable to the most powerful stage three World Deities. Much less this single legion, even two like it would be able to fight an even battle at most, but they still could not hope to capture her.
“I am a member of the Bloodshed God Palace as well, and I have an official position of the fifth rank. Dong Bo Xue Ying, you are just a supervisor envoy; you do not have the right to capture me.” The Venomous Ying World Deity was standing in the void, her enormous tail fiercely sweeping from left to right to smash those soldiers back while she sneered at Xue Ying.
This was meant to be an altercation.
Xue Ying’s position was truly not that incredible. Even he did not even have the authority to punish a World Deity with a fifth rank official position.
At the same time, if he truly was to capture her and bring her back to the Bloodshed God Palace, and if the interrogation determined that she truly did not commit any crimes, Xue Ying would be punished instead. If she did commit the crimes, however, this little matter of him having gone against the rules would be mostly disregarded.
The problem, however, was that his legion could not capture the Venomous Ying World Deity!
“Dong Bo Xue Ying, your subordinates are not strong enough, yet they still dare come up to try and capture me?” The enormous figure of the Venomous Ying World Deity looked toward the group of soldiers as if they were ants. “My cultivation is focused on hexing poison, and I’ve long since turned my body into a hexing poison body. On top of that, I have these arrays set down here, at the Nest of Myriad Devils. Do you truly think yourself able to deal with someone like me?”
“Hexing poison body? Strengthening from the arrays of Myriad Devils’ Nest?”
Without warning, Xue Ying extended his right hand.
That palm of his that looked as gentle as jade suddenly expanded explosively. Within moments, it reached a length of roughly five hundred thousand kilometers. It tore through the void with mighty force! It must be stated that the Time Immemorial Body would transform every single particle of one’s body into a Time Immemorial World. Every last particle that constituted his body would thus fundamentally be a Time Immemorial World. Once the user reached a stage of major success, just how big would their body be?
A single finger would most likely be a few hundred millions kilometers large!
Naturally, Xue Ying had merely trained his Time Immemorial Body to the sixth level, but if he truly were to bring his Deity body to its real size, it would be huge without a doubt.
After expanding his arm, he slapped out using his palm; his five fingers looked like five pillars holding the heavens. At the same time, white streams of light began to revolve around those fingers, giving them an appearance of being as pure and holy as a transcendent crystal.
“Haha, that is pitiful, Highness Dong Bo. This is not about who can make their palm bigger.” Venomous Ying World Deity cackled, her voice reverberating all throughout the void. However, she did not seem to be giving any qualms; she ruthlessly swung her enormous tail out with unparalleled strength. It lashed out directly against the enormous palm.
The enormous palm that seemed to block out the void slapped out, while the Venomous Ying World Deity’s tail swung over. Soon, the two clashed.
The enormous palm paused for no more than a moment before striking out with an even fiercer feeling of oppression. The Venomous Ying World Deity’s eyes went wide at the sight. “That’s impossible!” She failed to escape in time, and with a peng sound, the enormous palm struck her straight-on, sending her flying back into the tall mountains of the Nest of Myriad Devils. The palm was so powerful that it left an enormous imprint on the towering mountain, while countless rocks were blown out in every directions.
“What?!” The short man, World Deity Dong Xiao, eyes went wide at the sight. He seemed like he couldn’t believe what he was seeing as he turned toward the Venomous Ying World Deity. Despite having been strengthened by the Nest of Myriad Devils, she had actually been slapped right back into the mountain.
Behind him, the World Deities belonging to the Nest of Myriad Devils, and the hundreds of millions of Deities were all in disbelief.
And not just them—even the subordinates Xue Ying brought along, as well as Dong Bo Yu and Qing Yao, were startled at the sight of how powerful their father’s palm strike was.
