Leaf Saint’s eyebrows jumped the moment he heard that. He also gave Xue Ying a cold and satirical look, “Dong Bo Xue Ying, I am negotiating peacefully with you because of Paragon Huo Cheng. You better not be so overbearing, if Paragon Huo Cheng isn’t around… do you think I’ll just let things go like this?”
“So what if you don’t let things go?” Xue Ying retorted, “Do you think you can deal with me?”
Leaf Saint felt frustrated inwardly.
Even though they fought for a short period, the terrifying flying knife had caused Leaf Saint to feel fear since he knew he could not dodge that Flying Knife!
Being a Paragon, he naturally had a demeaning outlook towards those stage four World Deity who had a limited lifespan and had yet to transcend! But speaking from a rational point of view… the heaven-shattering Xue Ying was someone he genuinely could not capture.
“Leaf Saint, I am indeed just a stage four World Deity, but if I do not care about paying the price, it isn’t hard for you to die.” Xue Ying coldly said, “I can’t kill you, but there are many behind my back who could kill you. It is just that I am not too willing to pay a huge price.”
He was not lying.
Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master owed him a huge favor! Paragon Huo Cheng was his life and death brother. More importantly, his teacher, ‘Bloodshed God Emperor’, wanted to repay him for the matter on the ancient cavern. If Xue Ying did not wish for any treasures, asking Bloodshed God Emperor to deal with an ordinary Paragon was something easily done.
It’s just that it would be a waste to use the promise of Bloodshed God Emperor on Leaf Saint!
The eyes of Leaf Saint dilated, ‘Behind his back? Monarch Green? I’ve heard that during his opening feast, Monarch Green had personally attended it. Bloodshed God Emperor also attaches huge importance on this personal disciple of his.’
The weak was food for the strong amongst cultivators.
Once Leaf Saint felt the personal threat brought by Xue Ying, he suppressed the demeaning outlook he had towards this stage four World Deity: ‘This Dong Bo Xue Ying is after all the one to become a stage three World Deity in the shortest period. He is a stage four World Deity who can create a new record. I must not belittle him.’
“Haha, I said before that Monarch Dong Bo is very formidable that I can’t even deal with.” Saint Leaf chuckled. Though his expression slightly dimmed as he spoke, “But don’t you find that for you not to pay anything and still want to take back the two Sun Star Nucleus Stone is kind of overboard?”
Xue Ying shook his head, “We can sort out this entire matter right to its origin. It is your clan brother Bamboo Saint who attacked Forefather Scarlet Flame twice before this, taking away two Sun Star Nucleus Stone from him! Of the two stones, one belongs to me. I lent it to Scarlet Flame, and at that time, I have descended using karma to warn Bamboo Saint that he should stop. If he had stopped then, we might be able to let the bygones be bygones.”
“But it’s a pity that Bamboo Saint looked down upon me and Scarlet Flame. He disregarded my words and took the stone away.”
“Being so rampant to snatch things away from other people time after time, naturally, I want him to experience the feeling of someone taking his things away.” Xue Ying coldly said, “Those two Sun Star Nucleus Stones are ours originally, and it is only natural for us to take them back. As for his precious belongings, that can be his punishment for conducting such despicable acts.”
Leaf Saint could not help but try justifying after hearing that.
Paragon Huo Cheng who was standing by the side of Xue Ying, angrily shouted as he glanced towards Leaf Saint, “Leaf Saint, I once ordered you to stop, yet you did not. Even though I am here personally, you aren’t apologizing to me. Hmph, why do I feel that you, Leaf Saint, is not placing me in your eyes?”
“How would I dare to?” Leaf Saint retorted. A bad-tempered Paragon Huo Cheng was not someone to be offended.
“Are there even things you dare not do? Your guts are truly huge.”
Paragon Huo Cheng coldly said, “We do not have to discuss this matter any further. The two Sun Star Nucleus Stones belonged to us originally, so you better return them! And Leaf Saint’s lowly belongings… precisely because he had been ignorant and egotistical, we can consider them as an apology for offending I and Dong Bo Xue Ying. I believe this isn’t going overboard, am I right?”
Leaf Saint hesitated.
“Offend me, and I’ll destroy your territory and pursue you all the way.” Paragon Huo Cheng sneered, “I’ll even ask one or two good friends of mine to surround you and kill you.”
Leaf Saint gave an awkward laughter after seeing things heading this way, “Things can be discussed with words.”
He had lived for such a long period in the Deity world and Abyss, and naturally, it was not easy for someone to kill him. His true body and avatars were always separated, and he had many good friends. During crucial moments, he could even decide to rely on a Ruler.
But, there was no reason for him to get into a conflict with Paragon Huo Cheng.
The moment they became enemies, the future would become bleak for him.
In another location.
On a planet, many huge starry sky arrays were surrounding it. On each array, many divine sword illusions were moving.
This planet had several buildings.
It was here where ‘Leaf Saint’ cultivated at.
“Big Brother.” Bamboo Saint was garbed in black as he said, “You must get my precious belongings back.”
“I can’t take them back anymore.”
Standing on the peak of the mountain, overlooking the plains, the golden-robed Leaf Saint said, “This Dong Bo Xue Ying’s combat power has far exceeded my expectations. I can’t capture him, and Paragon Huo Cheng has threatened me, asking you to return those two Sun Star Nucleus Stones. Otherwise… they will soon kill their way over, destroying this place and chase after you and me.”
Bamboo Saint was stunned.
“Hand them over.” Leaf Saint sighed, “Don’t fight with them. It isn’t good to offend this Dong Bo Xue Ying.”
“Hand them over?” Bamboo Saint felt his heart turn bitter.
How could he hand over the stones?
That year, he had already offered the Sun Star Nucleus Stone to the Religious Leader! Now, he only had a piece of Sun Star Nucleus Stone with him. Furthermore, he must take back those precious belongings of his; else he would be doomed if they were revealed.
“No other ways.” Bamboo Saint thoroughly set his resolve.
“Big brother.” Bamboo Saint said, “I only have a piece of Sun Star Nucleus Stone with me. As for the other, I have long traded it with other powerful existences for treasures.”
“No more?” Leaf Saint looked at him.
“Mn, truly no more.” Bamboo Saint added.
“Then who did you exchange the treasure with?” Leaf Saint asked.
“I have promised before not to disclose it.” Bamboo Saint added.
“They will not believe me if I say. You can tell them yourself. ” Leaf Saint replied.
In the starry sky.
Xue Ying and Paragon Huo Cheng were both standing side by side in the starry sky. They were currently facing Leaf Saint and an illusion which was gradually condensing by his side. It was the incarnation of Bamboo Saint.
“Monarch Dong Bo, Paragon Huo Cheng.” Bamboo Saint accompanied in laughter. At the same time, he said with a high voice, “Let the Bloodshed God-Emperor be the witness, that I, Bamboo Saint, has long exchanged the first piece of Sun Star Nucleus Stone which I took from Forefather Scarlet Flame. I genuinely only have a single piece of Sun Star Nucleus Stone with me. Even after killing me, it is impossible for me to take out the second piece.”
Xue Ying and Paragon Huo Cheng were both stunned after hearing this.
Exchanged it away?
“Who did you exchange it with?” Xue Ying asked.
“The other party is afraid of revealing himself, and I have long promised not to disclose his identity.” Bamboo Saint helplessly said.
Xue Ying and Paragon Huo Cheng exchanged glances.
Since he had already let his teacher, Bloodshed God-Emperor, be the person of witness and set down an oath, it should not be fake. Did he exchange it with other powerful existences already? Most likely, the other party was afraid of inviting trouble, and had asked to keep his identity a secret?
“You took away two Sun Star Nucleus Stones, and you want to return a piece just like that?” Paragon Huo Cheng angrily roared.
“I don’t dare, I don’t dare, I desire to return even more, but my belongings are with Monarch Dong Bo.” Bamboo Saint said bitterly.
Paragon Huo Cheng turned to Leaf Saint, “If he can’t afford it, you do it!”
Leaf Saint felt his head aching.
Xue Ying was standing by the side. To ‘bleed’ the Two Saints Ink Clan was something Xue Ying felt delighted to do so. After all, if his combat power was slightly weaker, and if Leaf Saint captured him, the whole situation would be entirely different.
Since both parties had negotiated to this stage, it would be easy after that.
Leaf Saint handed out several treasures. Bamboo Saint also gave up the Sun Star Nucleus Stone, and both parties had decided to end this matter.
“Big Brother Huo Cheng, let us leave.”
Xue Ying and Paragon Huo Cheng both tore apart the time-space tunnel before leaving.
Leaf Saint and Bamboo Saint were both helpless.
They rarely suffered from losses, but this time, they had got the worst of it.
And in Leaf Saint’s territory.
Bamboo Saint soon returned to a cultivation room. He immediately used a unique communication treasure which could only be activated by him, “Protector, protector, there’s a matter I would like to report to the religious leader.”
“What’s the matter?” The protector calmly asked via the communication treasure.
“All the treasures which you have given me, including those all sorts of materials which I have collected, everything is gone.” Bamboo Saint transmitted over.
“What! All gone?” The protector had a considerable shock.
