Hearing Xue Ying promised him without hesitation, Forefather Scarlet Flame felt his heart relaxing. At the same time, he said, “To purify a piece of Sun Star Nucleus Stone, the price is huge. If you require any treasure, I’ll try my best to pay for it! If I can’t, then I’ll let you, Xue Ying, help me.”
“No need.” Xue Ying had just started saying…
When Forefather Scarlet Flame’s expression turned sullen: “Xue Ying, I am sure how much favor you will have to owe for this endeavor. There might even be several expenses far beyond what some treasures could be worth! If I can’t do anything, I’ll rather not have the Sun Star Nucleus Stone!”
Xue Ying was startled after seeing this. He understood that powerful existences had their dignity! Forefather Scarlet Flame had sought for help without caring about his pride because of a colossal matter like cultivation. If all the treasures were paid for by Xue Ying from his pocket… then that would be greatly hurt his dignity.
“Alright alright.” Xue Ying laughed and nodded, “Since Forefather has said so, then we’ll just listen to you.”
Nevertheless, speaking about treasures…
Even though Forefather Scarlet Flame had saved up for an extended period, his foundation wasn’t as deep as Xue Ying’s. Other than the True God weapon Flying Knife, he even had precious treasures like the original copy of the upper half of “Blood Demon Scripture”, the talisman and Fifth Uncle Master’s feather. During this Opening Feast, many gave him gifts that were not cheap too. Most stage four World Deities would present him things that were worth several hundred million Deity crystals.
True Gods would naturally present even more. Like Monarch Green, Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master and Paragon Huo Cheng, they were all ranked in the top twenty of the Cosmos Deity-Demon List, so their gifts were all the more extraordinary.
Adding these up would yield a sum that was frightening!
Still, Xue Ying’s current combat power was solid–it was close to a Paragon! With how powerful he was, these treasures were merely ‘adding flowers to the brocade’, and were considered as normal proper behavior based on reciprocity. Like in the past when Xue Ying took up the responsibility as supervisor envoy, he was weaker, yet many stage four World Deities wanted to form a karmic relationship with him, sending substantial gifts to Xue Ying which he did not dare receive.
Specifically, it was because his combat power was too inadequate, receiving those gifts worth several hundred of millions of Deity crystals would be doing a huge favor to him! And now? These gifts that worth several hundred of millions were just pittance to Xue Ying! Xue Ying was willing to receive them and allow the other party to attend his feast. These actions indicated respect for them since many other World Deities did not have the qualifications to participate in this feast.
In any case, this was his Opening Feast where everyone came to congratulate him. If it was an ordinary gathering, then there was no need for others to gift him.
Furthermore, the recipient was Xue Ying. If it was some regular stage four World Deity that had yet to transcend in becoming a powerful existence, the number of powerful existences attending would few, and gifts presented would not be that valuable either.
After all, the value of gifts presented depended on the recipient too.
“Oh right, Senior Disciple Brother Hui Ming and Forefather.” Xue Ying said, “Both of you know that I’ve obtained the original copy of the upper half of “Blood Demon Scripture”.”
“Mn.” Forefather Scarlet Flame and Eldest Disciple Brother Hui Ming knew what Xue Ying was going to say when they heard this.
“Do you want to learn this “Blood Demon Scripture”?” Xue Ying asked with a chuckle, “To tell you the truth, there are two ways of cultivating this absolute art. One uses countless souls as an aide, and is extremely vicious. Those who are willing to use this method will not have great progress in the future. The second method is based on your capabilities. If you want to learn, I’ll only impart the second method to you.”
Those who had the qualifications for him to impart the “Blood DEmon Scripture” to were not many. Even if it was imparting down to them, Xue Ying forbade them from using the first method too because he wasn’t too willing to generate countless sin from his actions.
“This old man will thicken my face and learn it then.” Forefather Scarlet Flame laughed, “I can comprehend it and borrow it to gain some inspirations.”
“I’ll pass.” Senior Disciple Brother Hui Ming chuckled.
Xue Ying and Forefather Scarlet Flame looked at him with astonishment.
Not learning it?
This was an absolute art sent to his doorsteps! And he did not want to learn it?
“Hui Ming, not cultivating it doesn’t mean you can’t gain some inspirations from it.” Forefather Scarlet Flame encouraged him, “It’ll be of help for you to transcend in the future.”
“No need.” Hui Ming shook his head, “The “Blood Demon Scripture” is one of the six grand inheritances of Ancestor Devil, and is extremely savage. It isn’t appropriate for me. My current realm is also lacking that is is best if I do not have a look.”
“Ancestor Devil’s six grand inheritances? Who is Ancestor Devil?” Forefather Scarlet Flame was puzzled.
Xue Ying was startled inwardly though.
This Senior Disciple Brother Hui Ming knew who Ancestor Devil was?
“Forefather should know that this cosmos we are in has several other epochs too.” Hui Ming looked towards him.
“I’ve heard of this before.” Forefather Scarlet Flame nodded, “Everything has its beginning and end. The cosmos has its epochs too.”
Hui Ming nodded, “Across the many cosmos epochs, there are two astounding individuals. One was the Lake Heart Island master, and the other was Ancestor Devil.”
“I’ve heard of the Lake Heart Island master, but there’s another comparable individual called Ancestor Devil?” Forefather Scarlet Flame nodded.
Xue Ying was silently looking at this senior disciple brother of his.
Senior Disciple Brother Hui Ming knew so many secrets, and it seemed he had great fortune too.
Forefather Scarlet Flame had first established an oath before learning the upper half of “Blood Demon Scripture”. Hui Ming had also used this chance to bid them farewell.
The number of people who learned the “Blood Demon Scripture” wasn’t many. Monarch Mo Xue’s true deity heart would be crumbling soon, and he had decided to reincarnate. Jing Qiu had asked Xue Ying to impart the art to her, which Xue Ying did not hesitate. Nevertheless, Xue Ying knew that it was not much of help for him to transcend.
Other than him, Jing Qiu and the White Sand City Lord had both learned it too.
Other than these few, he did not teach the rest including his children because the “Blood Demon Scripture” wasn’t an ordinary absolute art, and successfully cultivating it was challenging! Howling Devil Cult Leader’s combat power had been obtained by relying on countless souls and a long period of cultivation. One could see how challenging it was! Xue Ying even felt that it wasn’t too appropriate to teach his children. As for White Sand City Lord, given how old he was and that he had not become a stage four World Deity yet, he decided to let this brother of his learn it first regardless if it was useful or not.
“Big Brother Huo Cheng.” Xue Ying immediately went to meet Paragon Huo Cheng. Paragon Huo Cheng had not left after the feast. He was currently staying within the residence.
Paragon Huo Cheng was currently seated on a chair. His right hand was lightly drumming on the armrest with his eyes closed humming.
The red-haired, red-browed and red-skinned Paragon Huo Cheng seemed to be in a good mood.
He looked up and saw Xue Ying coming. He grinned, “Brother Dong Bo, have you resolved the matter of Golden Firmament? Even if you don’t come to find me, I have some matters in need of you too.”
“Forefather Golden Firmament’s matter has been resolved. Actually, he isn’t too willing to become enemies with me.” Xue Ying sat by the side, “I wonder why Big Brother Huo Cheng is looking for me?”
“Haha, I was strolling idly in your residence when I met your daughter. I decided to give her some pointers, of which she then asked if I could become her teacher… Honestly speaking, I find this little doll to be quite good, and I wonder if Brother Dong Bo is willing to let this daughter of yours become my disciple.” Paragon Huo Cheng laughed.
Xue Ying was in great joy as he hurried, “Certainly, certainly!”
Regarding the matter of his children getting teachers…
Xue Ying had once discussed with his wife. Ordinary powerful existences were not too willing to do so since both husband and wife were not any weaker. Unless some Paragons were prepared to receive them as a personal disciple, but that was too hard.
“I still hope for Big Brother Huo Cheng to teach Qing Yao, and to tolerate with this child. Her personality is a little overbearing.” Xue Ying requested for him to do so.
“Haha, why would the father be speaking about his daughter like this! I feel the personality of your daughter is not bad.” Paragon Huo Cheng said, “Since you accepted it, then this matter is resolved! I’ll definitely teach her conscientiously, but how she ends up, Brother Dong Bo, you better don’t blame me.”
“You don’t have to take me into account with how you teach your disciple.” Xue Ying added.
Paragon Huo Cheng nodded, “Oh right, is there a reason why you come looking for me too?”
“There is indeed a matter.” Xue Ying said, “And it is related to the Void Black Soil.”
