“The Religious Leader will grant me a huge blessing if I offer a piece of Sun Star Nucleus Stone him–the Religious Leader is indeed magnanimous.” Bamboo Saint chuckled before bringing out a simple-looking black metal. This black metal contained many dense golden words: “If I can get the Sun Star Nucleus Stone from Forefather Scarlet Flame and offer it to the Religious Leader, I should be able to obtain a reward not any lower than the previous time!”
“I feel that my foundation is getting more profound! Who knows if I might just open a Dao path after offering this stone.”
Bamboo Saint grinned as he looked at the black metal in his hand.
“Forefather Scarlet Flame, you are truly my benefactor.”
“Your face is quite huge to get Dong Bo Xue Ying to give you a piece of Sun Star Nucleus Stone.” Bamboo Saint became delighted the more he thought of it. If the Sun Star Nucleus Stone was with Xue Ying, he had no way of getting it! Xue Ying was too powerful, and even Paragons had a hard time trying to kill him. The moment he delayed the battle slightly, the good friends of Xue Ying like Paragon Huo Cheng and others would most likely arrive.
Thus, if the stone remained with Xue Ying, he would never dare do something like this.
As for Forefather Scarlet Flame?
He was much weaker!
Deep within the Sun Star.
Xue Ying was wearing a black armor as he forced his way through the Sun Stone Layer. He would squeeze out a passage through the Sun Stone Layer, traveled through it before the passage gradually recovered behind him.
He tore his way through the layer.
Many golden stars suffused the surrounding flames; the pressure was growing stronger. Nevertheless, the Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body armor was still able to withstand it.
‘This Sun Stone Layer is too thick. Comparatively speaking, the Sun Sea is much shallower.’ Xue Ying thought. With his combat power, he could still travel through at speed close to 500,000 kilometers every second despite being obstructed by the Sun Stone Layer. He had been moving for a day now, yet he was situated within the same Sun Stone Layer albeit the flames around him were getting stronger.
On the fifth day of his journey through the Sun Stone Layer, Xue Ying finally reached a deep region of the Sun Star. Within the sealed Stone Layer, many flames were glittering with golden stars. These flames could easily burn a powerful existence to death, and it was only because of the Extreme Mysterious Annihilation Body armor that Xue Ying was able to remain safe here.
‘I am reaching the third layer?’ Xue Ying finally stopped. He could vaguely feel a slightly weak undulation.
It felt weak, yet it had been transmitted out from the deepest area of the entire Sun Star.
The moment it touched his body, the Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body armor of his was even faintly vibrating.
‘The Sun Ripple Layer!’ Xue Ying understood. He had reached the boundary to the third layer of the Sun Star–the ‘Sun Ripple Layer’. Apex Paragons could safely reach the Sun Ripple Layer under ordinary circumstances. The weaker Paragons, however, would not be able to withstand this ‘Sun Ripple’. Instead, they would be burned to death and their bodies incinerated into oblivion! There was a minority of Paragons though, like Paragon Huo Cheng and Monarch Green, who could cross through the entire Sun Ripple Layer to enter the ‘Void Black Soil Layer’.
The Void Black Soil Layer was a place which Xue Ying did not even dare conceive the thought of going!
After all, Paragon Huo Cheng could enter because he specialized in flames, walking down the Flame Dao. Naturally, it was much easier for him. And ‘Monarch Green’ had a power matching that of Rulers. As for others like Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Lord, Mysterious North Imperial Empress and Bitter Cultivator, they might be heaven-shaking, yet they could not enter the Void Black Soil Layer at all.
Regarding defenses, Xue Ying dared to say that he was comparable with Bitter Cultivator and the others.
Xue Ying continued traveling deeper.
The Sun Ripple Layer still constituted of magma rocks. As Xue Ying got deeper, the power of the Sun Ripple would get stronger.
“Weng Weng weng~” The ripple was more potent the deeper he went; it caused Xue Ying’s armor to vibrate continuously. Still, the armor was able to resist the ripples.
‘The magma stone is becoming softer.’
Xue Ying was astonished.
The Sun Star magma stone wasn’t really a stone. It was an existence formed after the flames solidified! And now, under the impact of the Sun Ripple, the deeper in, the softer this solid became after being affected.
Xue Ying relied on the Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body armor to continue traveling deeper. He was relatively interested about the Sun Star, and thus, he decided to proceed on! But gradually, he would discover small cracks appearing on his Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body armor under the impact of the ‘Sun Ripple’. Xue Ying immediately let the energy within his body recover the cracks! As long as his armor could still recover from all damages, he would continue heading in further. The surrounding magma stones were starting to turn softer–it felt like soft soil.
‘This soft soil is starting to turn into the Void Black Soil.’ Xue Ying looked at the surrounding soft soil. The soft soil was gold in color, and amongst which, some were black. The flame amidst the soft soil was also a flame of pure gold in color! The golden star was sparkling, and it was able to cause slight damage on Xue Ying’s black armor. Comparatively speaking, the power from the Sun Ripple was much stronger than the golden star.
‘I am reaching the limit of which I could venture with my current cultivation.’ Xue Ying finally stopped. The surrounding golden soft soil was flowing with flames emerging every now and then. The terrifying ripple swept across a huge area time after time, and each time it pulsed, it would cause cracks on Xue Ying’s armor.
Xue Ying was cultivating and sensing the law of the Sun Star at the same time.
He closed his eyes.
“Hong hong hong~” There were the profound mysteries of flame. The flames were overbearing and tyrannical, burning everything in its way. That was a tyranny which did not leave any possible path of return!
“Hu hu hu~” It was the profound mysteries of the Sun Ripple. The Sun Ripple swept across every single area, and every single ripple had their minute differences. As Xue Ying extended his senses, he could even feel that it was akin to watching the billowing ocean waves hitting the shore in the Xia Clan world. The Sun Ripple was as such–every single ripple was different. This was because they were formed from many different ripples that superposed on each other, increasing their overall power.
The deeper in, the more concentrated the ripples were, allowing more superposition to occur that increased the power even further.
The further out he got, the less concentrated the ripples were, and thus, the ripples’ strength would be comparatively weaker.
Xue Ying could even understand that this Sun Ripple represented a sole Dao path! The moment one opened this Dao path, he would be able to stand there emitting Sun Ripples that would sweep across all directions! Even the strongest of Paragons could not withstand with their bodies! They would turn into smithereens!
‘This is a domain-related Dao, and its power is extreme with huge offensive ability.’ Xue Ying understood. The moment one unleashed the power of Sun Ripple, it would affect a huge area and the time-space situated within. There was no way of escaping from it. One could only withstand the ripples head-on.
If one could resist against the ripples, he would live.
Otherwise, he would die!
‘But now, it isn’t appropriate for me to seek power. If I bury myself into researching the Sun Ripple, it’ll be too troublesome if I opened a Dao path as a result.’ Xue Ying chuckled. He would be immersed in the River of Time forever and could not transcend: ‘I should transcend first. After that, I can research all I want.’
Xue Ying slightly pondered over the Sun Ripple, throwing his heart concentration into the operating laws of the ‘Sun Star’.
The Sun Star was by nature, a system in itself. It formed an even bigger world.
As Xue Ying was studying its construct, he perfected the comprehension he had towards the profound mysteries of the world. After all, his path was all about using the profound mysteries of the world to encompass all laws before forming the entire law of the world.
Deep within the third layer of the Sun Star, the ‘Sun Ripple Layer’, Xue Ying was quietly comprehending and experiencing the ripples personally.
Actually, Xue Ying had reached quite a profound comprehension of the world aspect, yet he lacked that spark to fuse the entire law of the world altogether.
As time passed, 13,000 years had already passed.
“Ai.” A low booming voice came transmitting from deep within the Sun Star, causing Xue Ying who was still situated around the soft golden soil to open his eyes suddenly. His eyes were filled with a strand of shock: ‘Are those the two Ruler lifeforms within the Sun Abyss?’
