Black Fog Sea, Monarch Dong Bo Residence.
Jing Qiu and Dong Bo Yu were both looking at Xue Ying and Forefather Scarlet Flame in confusion.
“Father, Forefather, what happened?” Dong Bo Yu could not help but ask.
“There are some minor issues.” Xue Ying frowned.
Forefather Scarlet Flame was slightly anxious. He grew ashen. After a while, his entire figure became powerless. He turned to Xue Ying, saying in a low voice, “Xue Ying, this time, I am unable to protect the Sun Star Nucleus Stone. Everything is because of me. In the future, if you still have to return the Sun Star Nucleus Stone to Ripple Lady Planet Master, everything will be handled by me.” Forefather Scarlet Flame said with a feeble voice.
Forefather Scarlet Flame was clear that he had no means of returning it! The Sun Star Nucleus Stone was such a precious treasure!
“I am sorry, I am sorry.” Forefather Scarlet Flame said in a low tone. Rage, guilt, and anguish filled him at this moment. He was even lamenting why he had asked Xue Ying for his help! If he had not done so, then would this matter have happened? In the future, how would Xue Ying return the Sun Star Nucleus Stone if he needed to?
“This isn’t related to you.” Xue Ying said frigidly, “This is a matter between Bamboo Saint and me. I had declared it as my belonging, and yet he still took it away!”
“Jing Qiu, Yu’er, I’ll be going out for a while.” Xue Ying stated.
“Oh.” Dong Bo Yu responded.
“You must be careful.” Jing Qiu could guess what Xue Ying was planning to do, and had reminded him.
“Rest assured. A Bamboo Saint is someone I don’t put in my eyes.” Xue Ying grinned.
He shot up to the sky, leaving the place.
Forefather Scarlet Flame sent Xue Ying off with his eyes. He clenched his fist as unwillingness and agony filled him. Those words of Bamboo Saint resounded in his mind–”Who asked you to be weak?””Who asked you to be weak?””Who asked you to be weak?”… it kept repeating and repeating–just like countless ants gnawing on his inner heart. This feeling of guilt to Xue Ying and hatred towards Bamboo Saint, along with various other emotions, were currently inundating his heart.
On a relatively distant starfield, there was an enormous ink bamboo land, within the chain of mountains, Bamboo Saint was currently caressing a black bamboo with a smile on his face. He was in a good mood, “Who would have thought that I can obtain two precious Sun Star Nucleus Stone from the body of an ordinary powerful existence, Forefather Scarlet Flame. Hahaha, this luck is truly exceptional! Hahaha, when I offer that piece of Sun Star Nucleus Stone to the Religious Leader, I wonder what he will give me?”
Suddenly, the expression of Bamboo Saint changed slightly. He turned towards the distance.
His eyes could see through the distance, seeing that time-space tunnel which had just been torn apart by the Ink Bamboo Land outer starry sky. A black-robed teenager had just come walking out from that tunnel, and he was emitting a killing intent which spread across the world.
Bamboo Saint’s eyes dilated. Seeing that figure, he muttered, “Dong Bo Xue Ying, he dared to come?”
He was questioning himself.
He and Xue Ying were both ranked 53rd and 52nd respectively. Their combat power was comparable! And now, he was in his territory. From how he sees, if Xue Ying truly came killing his way, it would be a waste of energy; he could not threaten Bamboo Saint at all. Even still, he thought that with the intelligence of Xue Ying, he would not come killing his way irrationally.
In reality, Xue Ying had truly come.
“Paragon Huo Cheng did not come with him.” Bamboo Saint borrowed on karma to affirm that Paragon Huo Cheng whom Xue Ying was very close to had not come.
“Just him alone?” The edge of Bamboo Saint’s lip sneered, “He is deluded by his rage so much that he became a fool?”
Walking out from the time-space tunnel, the killing intent on Xue Ying’s body rushed up into the sky. His eyes were cold as he looked at this piece of land filled with black bamboo. The many black bamboos were emitting a savage and bitter aura.
“Bamboo Saint!” Xue Ying roared out. His voice borrowed upon the world energy to wrap around the entire ink bamboo land.
“Bamboo Saint!” “Bamboo Saint!” “Bamboo Saint!”…
The angry shout thundered, reverberating in every single part of the vast Ink Bamboo land, causing many subordinates under Bamboo Saint to feel shocked. All of them were trembling as this roar had a willpower integrated within that paralyzed all of them. Some of the weaker ones had turned unconscious in a moment.
“Isn’t this Monarch Dong Bo? Why? Losing a piece of Sun Star Nucleus Stone and he dares act rampant over my place?” A figure flashed before appearing right above the Ink Bamboo land, facing the distant Xue Ying. This figure was none other than Bamboo Saint who was wearing a black robe and had black skin, with markings on his face. Bamboo Saint’s smile was genuinely vibrant, “Dong Bo Xue Ying, are you rating yourself too highly? I urge you to leave obediently. Otherwise, if we were to battle on, you would only be inviting yourself to trouble.”
The fury in Xue Ying was still growing.
This cultivation for over 700,000 years…
Xue Ying thought that he had tempered his character well enough, yet this Bamboo Saint had just turned him completely upside down with anger!
He had seized the Sun Star Nucleus Stone twice before, yet he remained so arrogant. Such cultivators were the ones Xue Ying despised the most. They were the dregs of society amongst the mortals! Conducting vile acts yet they did not find it despicable. Such savageness had long seeped into their bones. It was only because the Abyss was filled with such people, and his combat power was lacking that Xue Ying did not care about it. Still, this person had come stamping on his face and peed on him. How could Xue Ying remain calm?
“Old friend.” Xue Ying flipped his hand, causing a scarlet spear to appear. It was the World Deity ranked Blood Refined Deity Warrior which he had been refining–’Scarlet Cloud Spear’. Over the many long years of refining it, its power had far transcended the might of conventional World Deity grade weapons in the hands of Xue Ying. It was just a gap away from becoming a ‘True God weapon’.
“It has been 700,000 years. Time for the slaughter to start again.” The killing intent in Xue Ying’s eyes was blazing.
He had frequently killed during his mortal days when he went to the Mountain Range of Desolation.
Xue Ying might be more profound and introverted as a person currently, he would still act when it was time to do so.
“He is genuinely planning to attack?” Bamboo Saint was alarmed the moment he saw it, “I thought by throwing some vicious words, it might threaten him into negotiating. He hasn’t even spoken for two sentences and is planning to attack already?”
“Monarch Dong Bo, this is my territory, and you can’t defeat me here.” Bamboo Saint announced once again.
“Is that so?”
Xue Ying growled, “Then let us try.”
Bamboo Saint’s expression turned violent the moment he saw it. Was he genuinely planning on attacking? Then he shall likewise do so!
“My arrays have been set with the help of my elder brother. Elder brother might be ordinary amongst Paragons, and the arrays he constructed might not be able to block a Paragon, yet hindering a ‘Dong Bo Xue Ying’ should be fine.” Bamboo Saint glared at Xue Ying with a dark look, “I’ve even attempted it before without succeeding in breaking this clan protection array of mine.”
Xue Ying looked up at Xue Ying. He then sent the spear in his hand chopping over.
During the moment the Scarlet Cloud Spear was sent, it rapidly extended and became bigger. It was akin to an enormous sky pillar that could cross over billions of kilometers in the starry sky. At the same time when the Scarlet Cloud Spear was sent out, a piece of enormous land illusion appeared surrounding it. This piece of land was boundless and was much bigger than the Ink Bamboo land beneath.
The land illusion was filled faintly with many black thin pipes, generating a terrifying suppression.
“This is!” Bamboo Saint felt his heart turning cold the moment he saw it.
“Acting for the first time after 700,000 years.” The luminous sun force in Xue Ying’s body was awakening at this moment. The luminous sun force unique. If it left his body, its offensive power would greatly diminish. Only by residing inside his body, and enhancing his muscles would it be able to employ a potent force! That was the characteristic of energy. Only when energy was used together with substance could it exhibit a stronger force.
Xue Ying’s body, because of “Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body”, had become extremely powerful. In Three Chieftains Sacred Mountain, his strength could directly suppress Emperor Qi Hai.
And now, his luminous sun force had reached the fourth boundary realm.
Using both luminous sun force and Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body together, they would aid each other. This combination of energy and substance boosted Xue Ying’s strength far beyond that time when he was at the Three Chieftains Sacred Mountain.
More importantly, the period of 700,000 years was far longer than his entire length of cultivation before the period when he was at the Three Chieftains Sacred Mountain! The nine Deity hearts were all comprehended, and he no longer was any weaker to the powerful existences regarding the realm. He just lacked that last bit before understanding the complete law of the world! Even though he dared not seek extreme power in a single aspect, he was still putting all his mind into understanding the ‘Profound Mysteries of the World’.
Because he had decided upon his Dao path, and Bloodshed God-Emperor had agreed with it, this made Xue Ying decide to use the profound mysteries of the world to encompass all other laws of profound mysteries in forming the law of the world.
Thus, he was similarly placing all his concentration on cultivating the ‘Profound Mysteries of the World’.
Cultivating for 700,000 years.
In addition to the time spent in a time-accelerated environment, and spending a long period trying to comprehend the black feather and the broken scroll, with his comprehension ability, he had created five secret skills! And they all utilized the profound mysteries of the world. These five big moves… were all very powerful even amongst those close to the realm of Paragon. Thus, as compared to the time when he was at the Three Chieftains Sacred Mountain, the flaw in his realm was completely covered up.
This spear technique he was displaying currently, was none other than one of those five secret skills, the ‘Black Feather Land Suppression’.
