Chapter 600: The Black Feather
Translator: Radiant Editor: Radiant Xue Ying attempted sensing that Black Feather, yet it was a piece of fuzziness when his senses permeated through it. Eventually, he still had to depend on his naked eyes to look at it. With the “Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body”, Xue Ying was able to cultivate his body to an extreme stage, allowing his eyes to become even more unfathomable. Even a grit was akin to a massive planet to him. And now, his body that was stronger than ordinary True Gods had improved his vision to such extent that he could see through the surface of the particle when he concentrated on it.
Under the inspection of his eyes, the boundary of the Black Feather was rapidly growing big, turning into a vast Black Feather land.
On this piece of vast land, there were countless black shaped things and many thin pipes. Xue Ying’s eyes continued permeating through it, penetrating through the thin pipes…
“Hu hu…” Within the thin pipes, there was a piece of void passage tunneling to other regions. This void passage had an imprint revolving on it. This imprint was much similar to the markings on the ‘talisman’ that would bring him to the Starting Ground. Because his eyes had permeated into the Black Feather, seeing into the millions and millions of little thin pipes, even Xue Ying’s eyes had starting to turn blurry with the imprints becoming indistinct.
Xue Ying was slightly startled. He continued investigating other thin pipes. Every single thin pipe had a void passage within.
‘This feather is akin to a vast world. There are millions and millions of void thin pipe passage, and every single passage is unique in its way.’ Xue Ying began receiving back his gaze. He then looked at the entire land of the Black Feather from a broader angle. The whole Black Feather land was formed from a dense number of thin pipes. This land was remarkably stable.
Countless black thin pipes formed the entire land. This structure was also stunning! It had already surpassed the category of being just arrays and was more of natural beauty.
‘Mythical.’ The soul in Xue Ying’s heart emerged. That void passage within the tunnel was indeed too fuzzy, and he could hardly comprehend anything. But the entire Black Feather internal structure was much more perfect than the particles of his own Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body, allowing Xue Ying to gain some inspiration.
“Xue Ying, Xue Ying.” Jing Qiu shouted from the side.
Only then did Xue Ying regained his consciousness. He then kept this Black Feather and said, “Fifth Uncle Master’s gift is unique.”
“How unique could a feather be?” Jing Qiu was puzzled.
“I’ll let you have a thorough inspection after the feast.” Xue Ying laughed. He felt that if given enough time, he would be able to comprehend some techniques from the Black Feather.
After Black Bird Uncle Master came, there were no more other powerful existences coming.
Xue Ying walked all around, chatting with the many powerful existences. Once the preparations were done, he would begin the feast officially.
The ‘Opening Feast’ was not all about eating. Most powerful existences would instead take this opportunity to network with others. Those whom they were not familiar with in the past were able to become more familiar with each other after exchanging some cups of wine and idle chatter.
68 powerful existences in total participated the feast.
The seating arrangement was also casually scattered within the garden in threes and twos. Statuses did not separate them. But regardless, cliques would still be formed. Black Bird Fifth Uncle Master, Monarch Green, Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master, Paragon Huo Cheng, Monarch Gu Zang, Xue Ying, North Hu Palace Head and several others were situated closer to one another. Xue Ying was clamped in between the two groups of cultivators. The other side had Forefather Scarlet Flame, Eldest Disciple Brother Hui Ming, Jing Qiu, Monarch Mo Xue, Calm Sea Prefecture Master and several others whom he was closer.
Naturally, the weaker World Deities had to be situated further, like Seventh Mei Yu, Dong Bo Yu, Qing Yao and White Sand City Lord. Letting them stay next to powerful existences would cause them to feel too uncomfortable even to eat.
At the same time, right at the center of the feast at the garden, there were some dances and songs to bring up the atmosphere.
“Brother Gu Zang, I’ve heard that you have been in closed-door cultivation for a long time. It is so rare for you to come out. Today is the opening feast of your junior disciple brother, and for senior disciple brother to attend it makes this junior disciple brother feel delighted. Let us have a toast.” Xue Ying said.
Monarch Gu Zang was a handsome teenager with a delicate white face. His body though was emitting a heavy death aura. Monarch Gu Zang chuckled and raised his cup, “Junior Disciple Brother has granted me such a huge favor, how would I not attend?”
Paragon Huo Cheng was observing from the side, feeling startled inwardly at the same time, ‘Gu Zang and Monarch Green don’t seem too close! But they are ultimately quite close to Brother Dong Bo. Truly weird.”‘
Indeed, that’s weird.
Monarch Gu Zang and Monarch Green were not seated too far away. But other than some simple two to three sentences of words, they did not continue chatting and were apparently unfamiliar with one another.
‘I’ve not heard that these two disciple brothers have any conflict.’ Xue Ying felt even more serious. The unfamiliarity between these two Senior Disciple Brothers was too blatant, and it was not right for him to say anything either. He continued accompanying his two senior disciple brothers and other friends.
‘Mn?’ Seated on the other side, Forefather golden Firmament frowned and glanced at the distant Monarch Green, Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master, and Paragon Huo Cheng chatting happily with Xue Ying, ‘This Dong Bo Xue Ying is friendly with Monarch Green and the other three! They are all currently ranked in the top 20 of the Cosmos Deity-Demon List. Monarch Green’s power is even more boundless, and he could kill me with a single flip of his hands.’
‘But my big brother should be stronger than Monarch Green still. Big brother has always been pondering over his cultivation technique, and the moment he succeeds, hmph hmph hmph’” Forefather Golden Firmament and Pang Yi were both one of the earliest lifeforms from the Deity world. The two had emerged from the Deity world, and were like brothers, ‘It’s just that I find big brother weird–his tamper has somehow become much better.’
A feast would usually continue for about three days.
To powerful existences, three days were short. They would casually chat with each other. For instance, they would talk about some historical remains for several hours. If the time was short, they could continue chatting endlessly. Once they conversed for some time, they would then become familiar with one another.
After the feast ended, people like Black Bird Uncle Master who had stayed until the end, left immediately. Monarch Green, Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master, and the other powerful existences also began departing. Xue Ying sent them off personally. Soon, more than half of the crowd had left.
“DIsciple Brother Hui Ming, Forefather Scarlet Flame, let us have a chat after a while. I’ll first meet Forefather Golden Firmament.” Xue Ying said.
“Alright.” Eldest disciple Brother Hui Ming nodded.
“You should go deal with that Forefather Golden Firmament first. He isn’t someone you should offend.” Forefather Scarlet Flame said too. They knew of Jing Qiu’s identity at the current moment and naturally, the conflict between Xue Ying and Forefather Golden Firmament as well.
In a peaceful area at the back of the garden.
There were only two people there–Xue Ying and Forefather golden Firmament. There were also wine flasks being warmed. Xue Ying personally poured wine for Forefather golden Firmament and said at the same time, “Forefather Golden Firmament, you have spent billions of years collecting the “Heart Sword Diagram”. The other four remnant pieces have been collected, leaving only the last piece uncollected. You have even spent plenty of effort and blood in trying to break through the seal of that historical remain, yet it ended up in the hands of my wife. That frustration you have is something I can understand! But forefather, you should understand that my wife is also being treated unjustly, did she do anything wrong? No! She has only entered some common dangerous area to have a look, and unknowingly, obtained the remnant piece of the Heart Sword Diagram. It can be said that it was luck that gave her this opportunity. Thus, that time when you wantonly pursued after her, wanting to collect her soul and had even forced my wife to reincarnate in the end, Forefather Golden Firmament, isn’t this riding on the weak?”
“Why, are you thinking of seeking revenge for your wife?” Forefather Golden Firmament snorted.
