Chapter 536: Guest of Lake Heart Island
Translator: Radiant Editor: Radiant
When Xue Ying released his spear, the other nine world bodies had done the same.
First spear, ordinary, but its power started accumulating.
The petite armoured warrior was, however, quite excited, as Xue Ying’s real body had finally released his spear. If not for that, he would have felt sullen, if Xue Ying continued hiding.
Second spear, its surroundings started twisting and this increased the petite armoured-warrior’s ‘Chao Wu’s’ alertness, something was not right!
As if ten incomparably dazzling ‘Sun Stars’ had all appeared before his eyes at once, he was blinded and couldn’t see at all. He was left only with relying on using the laws of profound mystery to sense his surrounding to detect traces of the ten spears. He also detected a strong trace of menace! That had to be the most tyrannic move Xue Ying had ever made.
“En?” The bystanding groups of Blood-colour-armoured warriors were quite taken aback.
His newly comprehended secret skill, ‘Destruction’ which drew out a enlightenment from of the ancient array in the Lake Heart Island and gathering the accumulation from two previous spears, caused the explosive power from the third spear to be very powerful!
A Scarlet Cloud Spear appeared to be speeding over in fury.
That was the secret skill ‘Destruction’.
That was considered a spear technique as well, a marvelous play of the rules, and without a fixed style of use. It could be used to thrust, to hack, to sweep, or to drill into.
And when the world bodies in nine other realms activated the skill of ‘Destruction’, whether it was thrusting, or sweeping, they were all directed towards the Chao Wu.
“It’s bad.” Chao Wu’s expressions changed drastically. The real intention of this activation of the third spear was only revealed when it exploded, and it was too late for him but he started displaying and combining martial arts and blade technique, in hope to block that off.
“Pu.””Peng.””Chi.” The spears had all came at once, and while observing this in a fraction of a moment, the Chao Wu’s blade technique had been spied on by Xue Ying.
The last Scarlet Cloud Spear was surrounded by a darkness in absolute black, and surrounded by a surge of power, surging violently towards the Chao Wu that had already been trapped by the nine spears, and after working very hard, he was unable to restrain his emotions as he’s transformed into a flowing light and left in the opposite direction.
But this berserk move kept thrashing perfectly at his body, it’s power too great.
The continuous thrashing sent him flying backwards, and out of the parameters of the red light, and onto the cliff walls, shattering down countless layers of ice before he managed to stabilise himself. With an unsightly face, he looked towards Xue Ying, who was standing afar on the Blood-coloured disc. And though he was not injured to the slightest hair, he knew clearly that he lost!
To be expelled out of the Blood Fire Door would have rendered his lost in the battle!
“Not bad spearmanship you’ve displayed. This move way exceeds the stage three realm, and basing solely on its marvelous play of rules, this would have easily be recognised as a move from stage four realm.” The tall and thin woman praised with a smile.
“It’s a very powerful spear, little brother Chao Wu did not lose in injustice.” The enchanting women continued.
“A World Deity from the stage three realm with such strength definitely have the rights to open the gates into the Blood Fire Door.” The tall and thin woman continued, “Foreign practitioner, you’ve passed the screening test, and is now a guest of Lake Heart Island! This is a gift for you, on your passing of the test.”
As she spoke, the tall and thin woman took out a Blood-coloured talisman.
The Blood-coloured talisman had only one strange-looking character on it.
Though he had not seen anything similar to this character, Xue Ying had a sudden recognition of the character – ‘Mo (Ink?)’.
“Mo?” By the time Xue Ying grew doubtful, the Blood-coloured talisman had flown to his side.
“What’s the use of this talisman?” Xue Ying asked.
“It should be useful.” The tall and thin woman spoke with a matter of indifference, “You’ve only passed the screening test, the reward for this would not be too high. There will be more treasures for the more dangers you’ve survived after the gates to Blood Fire Door open.”
The petite Chao Wu spoke softly from the side, “What matters to you is that you are now a guest of Lake Heart Island, and that’s your greatest reward. Having been a guest of this island, you will no longer be viewed an intruder, and would not be succumbed to our attacks. You can walk freely in our common areas. However, you are prohibited from trespassing the island’s restricted area.”
“Walking freely within the common areas?” Xue Ying was delighted.
Such are the benefits of being a guest here.
That was such a useful reward to have, and to himself, having to be in constant danger would have been such a headache.
“Hong Long Long~~~” Suddenly, the Blood-coloured disc beneath Xue Ying’s feet separated slowly, and withdrew to the sides, revealing a horrendous-looking tunnel.
Xue Ying felt a jab of bone-chilling terror, and flew up to get a view of what’s below.
There seemed to be a suction from below, and it was in the process of sucking Xue Ying in.
The tunnel that was revealed after the Blood-coloured discs withdrew, was a space of twisted hollowness. However in this twisted space, there were eighteen vein lines in Blood-colour, and in every line, they seemed to be howling from countless lives. A mere sight had involuntarily brought out the terror in him, and it obstructed his breathing to the extent that he felt like crouching down.
Even facing His Majesty Master God Emperor was not as frightening as this.
However, this tunnel had given Xue Ying a sense of terror to such an extent.
“Stop stop stop.” Xue Ying spoke, “I’m giving up. I’m giving it up.”
“Giving up?” That tall and thin woman was surprised, “You aren’t going to crash into the Blood Fire Door anymore?”
Xue Ying continued, “The Blood Fire Door is laced with layers of perils, it should not be mandatory, could I give up?”
“En.” The tall and thin woman nodded her head, and at a wave of her hand, the Blood-coloured disc came together again, sealing up the horrendous-looking tunnel.
“You’re quite smart. With your strengths, you might have been killed in the tunnel.” The tall and thin woman continued, “However, when you’ve grown stronger, you are welcome to challenge this door again.”
“I will, I will.” Xue Ying agreed.
Though he mutually agreed to the woman’s suggestion, he knew well that he shouldn’t treat this matter too lightly.
This was carefully constructed by the owner of Lake Heart Island with intention to ward of intruders, and by the look of it, it would have been extremely perilous inside. The mere ‘Screening test’ was already quite hard for me, am I trying to seek death going into the tunnel? I would probably consider this when I’m stronger.
“And since I’m a guest of Lake Heart Island, I wouldn’t be attacked in the common areas right?” Xue Ying questioned.
“En.” The tall and thin woman nodded in agreement, “But do not trespass the restricted area.”
“Where’s this restricted area?” Xue Ying asked.
“Worry not. If you did trespass by accident, you would be expulsed. But if it was intended, you would be killed.” The tall and thin woman replied his query.
“Understood.” Xue Ying gave a smile, “Everybody, I would make my departure.”
Right after he turned to leave, Xue Ying made a halt and looked towards the petite warrior far away, “Brother Chao Wu?”
The petite warrior ‘Chao Wu’ turned and looked at Xue Ying in surprise, “What’s the matter?”
“You’re a Stage three realm World Deity right?” Xue Ying asked.
“I think so.” Chao Wu answered with a frown.
Xue Ying nodded lightly.
He found that out when he fought against Chao Wu, and though Chao Wu’s Secret Skill, blade technique, was very powerful, he was however a stage three World Deity, albeit good at defending. And he would only be comparable with Xue Ying only if he increases his power and speed tremendously.
“These armoured warriors, no matter the Black or Blood-coloured, are all good at defense.” Xue Ying thought, “To estimate would have been Lake Heart Island’s strategy.”
At the very same moment, he sped up and flew off.
And those Black-armoured beasts that were blocking the valley retreated, by touching the mountain walls before disappearing.
“You’ve even become a guest of Lake Heart Island?” The Black-armoured many-legged beast muttered in apprehension, before disappearing into the mountainous walls with the others.
Xue Ying felt unreasonably jubilant after seeing the Black-armoured beasts making their departure. This is true, they are no longer attacking me.
Xue Ying had sped quickly along the direction that his wife went, in catching up with her.
“Jing Qiu, tell me, where are you? Don’t run, I’m coming!” Xue Ying communicated immediately, feeling emotional and full of confidence at the same time. That was his first, the confidence to bring his wife to safety. His confidence was brimming to such an extent that he was confident in rescuing his father-in-law as well.
