Chapter 612: Heading to the Sun Star
“It’s finally done.” Xue Ying immediately left the Black Fog Sea alone, riding on the starfield flying ship towards Ripple Lady Planet.
Very soon, he arrived there.
This time, he wasn’t affected by any obstructions. Instead, under the lead by the array spirit, the white-robed old man, Xue Ying went on to meet with the Ripple Lady Planet Master.
Ripple Lady Planet Master remained in her snowy-white robe. She sat by the side of the lake barefooted. Her tender white legs were kicking the water casually, and every single movement of hers let out a natural cadence.
Xue Ying sighed inwardly. This Ripple Lady Planet Master had the most natural aura amongst the Paragons he had seen.
“The water seems ordinary, yet it should be essential amidst the Myriad Existences of the entire Cosmos. Without it, no life could survive.” Ripple Lady Planet Master said, “The strength of water is also an important strength when refining a piece of equipment.”
“If mentioning about refining equipment, Planet Master is ranked in the top three even after including the Rulers.” Xue Ying said.
“Compared to your teacher, I am still far off. Bloodshed God Emperor is indeed a miraculous existence in our cosmos epoch.” Ripple Lady Planet Master stood up, stepping on the grass as she sauntered over, “Dong Bo Xue Ying, you are considered a miraculous existence too. I thought that you would have transcended into a True God during the period I was purifying out the Sun Star Nucleus Stone.”
Xue Ying shook his head, “How could cultivation be that easy? I have merely comprehended nine different grade one Deity Hearts at this moment and want to fuse them together into the whole law of the world; I still lack that crucial last step.”
“I believe that you will soon achieve it with your comprehension ability.”
Ripple Lady Planet Master flipped her hand. A black glossy stone appeared in it. It was about the size of a nail and seemed ordinary.
But Xue Ying’s eyes brightened the moment he saw it.
He could feel the law of profound mysteries changing around this Sun Star Nucleus Stone; it had repulsed the strength of water, and its surrounding temperature had risen by quite a few. Even time-space was suppressed…
“A stone can transform the laws?” Xue Ying was slightly astonished.
“For you.” Ripple Lady Planet Master threw it to him, “I do not have any desires throughout these few years.”
“I appreciate the effort made by Planet Master.” Xue Ying said. He received the Sun Star Nucleus Stone with his hand. The stone felt warm, but when using the luminous sun force to permeate through it, he was able to discover the terrifying strength contained within this Sun Star Nucleus Stone! The luminous sun force was burnt to nothingness the moment it made contact upon it! Xue Ying might be alarmed, but he did not find it weird.
Even though he had long cultivated the “Luminous Sun” to the fourth boundary of the fourth volume, even Rulers who proceeded into the deepest area of the Sun Star–the Sun Star Nucleus–would be burned into nothingness.
This piece of nail-sized stone contained very little energy within, yet its quality was extremely high! Such a stone could easily burn away the luminous sun force.
‘Being able to affect the surrounding law, it is truly unfathomable.’ Xue Ying vaguely understood that the structure of this stone had an enormous secret, but he could not sense it. Any strand of energy was burned into nothingness the moment it touched upon the stone! Naturally, being unable to comprehend it, Xue Ying could guess that even Rulers would have a hard time trying to understand it.
“You have given me your promise. Do not forget it.” Ripple Lady Planet Master chuckled.
“That’s natural.” Xue Ying said.
It was a promise that was worth a thousand gold.
“Also, I have not made known to any other people regarding the matter of I refining the Sun Star Nucleus Stone for you, other than my subordinates.” Ripple Lady Planet Master mentioned, “My subordinates do not dare to spread outwards either. Thus, this matter should still be a secret. But with how you have been collecting the precious materials wantonly, many powerful in the Deity world and Abyss should be able to make their conclusions.”
“Many thanks.” Xue Ying said
He wasn’t afraid of the threat. But Forefather Scarlet Flame was relatively weaker.
“Then I’ll make my move first.” Xue Ying said.
“I hope that the next time we meet, you would have transcended.” Ripple Lady Planet Master stated, “I am truly waiting for the day you become a Paragon. Otherwise, this favor of yours is not much use to me.”
“I hope that it will happen according to your wishes too.” Xue Ying laughed. Towards Ripple Lady Planet Master, with her identity as a Paragon and also the number one refiner amongst Paragons, many came asking her for her help. If he did not become a Paragon, then this favor of his was useless to her indeed!
Xue Ying brought the Sun Star Nucleus Stone, returning home secretly.
Black Fog Sea.
During the way back, he had already transmitted and informed Forefather Scarlet Flame.
“Look.” The moment he returned, he brought out that piece of Sun Star Nucleus Stone.
Seeing this little black stone and discovering the transformation of the law of the world around it, Forefather Scarlet Flame’s eyes immediately turned red. His body was slightly trembling. This Sun Star Nucleus Stone could vaguely affect the surrounding law, and thus, would greatly reduce the damage wrought on him, enabling him to descend to the second level, ‘Sun Stone Layer’ of the Sun Star.
Descending to this level, the hope of his path of cultivation would significantly increase. In his entire life, he would undoubtedly be able to open his own Dao path and become a Paragon!
If not for this stone, he would not see the light, and days of hope. Instead, he would feel tasteless despite living for the long periods of time! This was also the reason why Forefather Scarlet Flame asked Xue Ying for his help despite knowing that it might sound a little overbearing; instead, he had thickened his face to ask for his help.
And Xue Ying had put in all effort to help him accomplish it.
“Xue Ying, thank you, thank you.” Forefather Scarlet Flame’s voice was slightly trembling.
“Forefather, there is no need to say thanks to me.” Xue Ying chuckled, “I’ll temporarily not give this Sun Star Nucleus Stone to you.”
Forefather Scarlet Flame was stunned.
Forefather Scarlet Flame might be anxious, yet he still asked, “You are planning?”
“No other reasons.” Xue Ying said, “If I give it to you, you will return to the Sun Star immediately! The moment any powerful existences discovered it… what do you say they would think? I have been collecting precious materials for over 600,000 years, and you have been staying over at my place during this period too. Now that you are planning to return to the Sun Star Planet? Adding up the time Ripple Lady Planet Master took to purify it, those who are slightly more intelligence could deduce what will happen.”
Forefather Scarlet Flame felt a wave of fear.
He had been staying here in the Black Fog Sea for over 600,000 years, and why would he suddenly return? Matters regarding the Sun Star Nucleus Stone would indeed cause others to pay their attention to this.
“You should continue staying here in the Black Fog Sea as if nothing has happened.” Xue Ying said, “Isn’t your true body at the Sun Star? I’ll personally make a trip over to send the Sun Star Nucleus Stone. Furthermore, I plan on staying there to cultivate too. Firstly, those who are scheming would find out that it should be I who wanted to borrow the Sun Star Nucleus Stone in cultivating. Secondly, if there is someone who truly acted, I can help you too.”
Forefather Scarlet Flame felt that what Xue Ying considered was thoughtful indeed. He added, “Actually, powerful existences would not think that you will give the Sun Star Nucleus Stone to me either since it is too precious.”
“I know that you are anxious. I’ll set off tomorrow.” Xue Ying said.
After telling Jing Qiu, Xue Ying left on the next day. He and his wife or children parting was a minor matter since they could meet anytime within the Xia Clan World, Crimson Rock Mountain world. Being cultivators, they were still vigilant and stayed in the Material Realm; even Rulers could not kill him. Naturally, he had to make good use of it.
Over the long years, if Xia Clan World crumbled, then he would have to leave. By then, he would not be able to have such perfected protection.
Riding on the Starfield Flying Ship, Xue Ying was feeling expectant as he stood on the deck. Despite how familiar he was with the ‘sun’ as a mortal, he had never indeed entered the Sun Star ever.
The Sun Star was located at a different time-space.
And it was not on the same level as the ordinary time-space. It was even on a different level with the River of Time.
It was located at the level with the core of the entire cosmos; its brightness could shine across the whole cosmos.
