Chapter 625: Summoning Xue Ying

Deity world. Within the courtyard where Bamboo Saint’s corpse was.
His elder brother ‘Leaf Saint’ was frowning as he watched from the side, ‘How did he die? How did he get killed? It can’t be that he suicided right?’
Maybe stage four World Deities might die from their true deity hearts crumbling apart, but they would decide to reincarnate before that.
This brother of his who had become a powerful existence had just died silently like this?
Suddenly, a figure appeared by the side.
Leaf Saint was so startled that he jumped. This territory of his had many arrays arranged, yet an outsider had entered so easily.
But the moment he saw that cold black-robed black-haired male, he greeted politely, “Greetings Temporal Island Lord.” So, the outsider was shockingly Temporal Island Lord. With the Temporal Island Lord’s control over time-space, it was normal for him to appear stealthily.
“The Temple treasure spirit has told you about what happened?” Temporal Island Lord calmly said.
“Yes.” Leaf Saint added.
“You did not discover any disturbances or signs?” Temporal Island Lord asked.
“Never!” Leaf Saint replied, “This cultivation place of mine is filled with many arrays, and those who could come here stealthily can be counted with one’s finger in the Deity world and Abyss. But with the identity of Rulers, they would disdain from conducting such acts.”
The Temporal Island Lord lightly nodded. If they, Rulers, wanted to kill an ordinary True God, they had so many different means of doing it. Even if they created a considerable disturbance, they would not care since those who offended a Ruler… would not be pardoned! Such a sneaky method of killing an ordinary powerful existence was too repugnant to the Rulers.
Temporal Island Lord surveyed that corpse which had its eyes full and round. He quietly inspected it a few times.
After examining it a few rounds, Temporal Island Lord frowned.
He then disappeared from thin air.
Leaf Saint was startled as he stood by the side. Did he leave just like this? He did not even talk to him anymore? Was he going to keep this corpse? Or would he be handling it?
“Leaf Saint, master has finished his inspection. Everything here is left for you to handle however you want.” The Temporal Temple treasure spirit transmitted a message over.
In the wooden courtyard of the Bloodshed God Palace.
The Abyss Primogenitor and Bloodshed God Emperor were both enjoying wine and chatting happily when suddenly, a figure arrived right outside the wooden courtyard.
“It’s him?” Abyss Primogenitor had a look of shock as he glanced outside.
The door to the little wooden courtyard was pushed open.
A black-robed black-haired cold Temporal Island Lord came walking in.
“It is so rare that you come over to my place.” The edge of Bloodshed God Emperor’s lip moved upwards, “Aren’t you afraid of me killing your avatar?”
“It’s a matter regarding the Ancestor Mother Religion.” Temporal Island Lord said indifferently.
“Ancestor Mother Religion?” Bloodshed God Emperor and Abyss Primogenitor were both startled as they tuned solemn.
“What happened? Did you discover anything?” Bloodshed God Emperor asked.
Temporal Island Lord explained, “My Temple treasure spirit discovered that Bamboo Saint has died peculiarly. I went over to investigate… and it seems to be the silencing method from the Ancestor Mother Religion.”
“The silencing method from the Ancestor Mother Religion?” Bloodshed God Emperor frowned.
“Bamboo Saint has died in the cultivation territory of his Elder Brother Leaf Saint. When he died, there were no disturbances at all, and neither were there any signs of battles happening. Furthermore, he died with his true deity heart crumbling apart, and Leaf Saint had discovered no traces whatsoever. There are very few who could do this within our Deity world and Abyss, and clearly, it isn’t us who did it. More importantly… he died with a look of shock. It seems he did not even have the time to tell his elder brother–it was very sudden.” Temporal Island Lord elaborated, “Such a matter has happened twice before, and this is the third time! I reckon that with a probability of 99%, it should be the Ancestor Mother Religion.”
Bloodshed God Emperor continued questioning, “Did he leave behind any materials on his body?”
Those who were silenced like this would know some secrets relating to the Ancestor Mother Religion.
Once they were dead, they could only investigate from the belongings they left behind.
“I’ve already checked through before. Other than some communication treasures which are slightly special, he has no other suspicious goods.” Temporal Island Lord replied, “According to my understanding, about a dozen days ago, Bamboo Saint’s true body has been killed by Dong Bo Xue Ying, and his many precious belongings have landed in the hands of Dong Bo Xue Ying. He is your disciple, so I came over asking you.”
“Xue Ying?” Bloodshed God Emperor was stunned momentarily, “Alright, I’ll summon him over now.”
Black Fog Sea. Underground Palace.
Xue Ying was currently immersed entirely in looking at those many words on the black metal. There was a huge amount of information inscribed on it, and they were records related to the comprehension of the laws of profound mysteries.
‘Those who could make these records must have an extraordinary realm. Their way of thinking is unique too.’ Xue Ying felt that these objects were of huge help to him.
“Dong Bo, Bamboo Saint has died. Do you know that?” Paragon Huo Cheng suddenly sent a message over.
“Dead?” Xue Ying was stunned. He immediately used karma to sense, yet no matter how, he could not detect the karma of Bamboo Saint anymore. It was clear that his true body and avatar were both killed.
“Unless it isn’t you who sent someone to assassinate him? Isn’t your Bloodshed Tavern specialized in assassinations?” Paragon Huo Cheng asked.
“Not really. Really, it isn’t me. He has his elder brother there, and assassinating him is too difficult.” Xue Ying replied.
Closely following that, another message came.
“Monarch Dong Bo, Bamboo Saint has died. Does Monarch know of it?” It was a message sent by Calm Sea Prefecture Master.
“Bamboo Saint’s death is related to you, Xue Ying?” It was a message by Jing Qiu.
Many sent transmissions over to ask him.
Because the death of a powerful existence was enough to alarm the entire Deity world and Abyss. It was quite common to see avatars killed since everyone would frequently fight or enter the dangerous grounds of historical remains. Thus, losing an avatar was common. But the death of both true body and avatar was rare! Because most powerful existences would be very vigilant to protect at least a body of theirs.
Bamboo Saint was an existence close to a Paragon, and with his combat power, both his true body and avatar had died. Naturally, everyone was paying close attention to this.
Coincidentally, about a dozen days ago, Xue Ying had just killed his way to the territory of Bamboo Saint and murdered a body of his. Naturally, many powerful existences were making their guesses.
“Xue Ying, come over to my place.” A voice sounded by his ears.
“Teacher?” Xue Ying was stunned. Even his teacher was summoning him over. Unless his teacher was suspecting that I’m the one who acted?
Xue Ying was filled with bewilderment and helplessness, yet he could not care about it anymore. He immediately used his fastest speed, leaving Black Fog Sea and heading towards the Bloodshed God Palace.
Over at that little wooden courtyard in the Bloodshed God Palace.
Xue Ying had pushed open the door before entering. The moment he came, he could see two figures seated within, and a character with a cold expression standing by the side.
Xue Ying could immediately discern the two seated there as his teacher and the Abyss Primogenitor! It was enough to shock him. As for the other black-robed black-haired male with a cold expression standing by the side, he startled Xue Ying even more–Temporal Island Lord?
Honestly speaking, Xue Ying had some fear and dislike towards this Temporal Island Lord.
Primarily, it was because the Temporal Island Lord used the ‘Temporal Temple’ to rampantly capture countless lives and force them into many dangerous missions. Even their souls were controlled. Such conduct made Xue Ying feel extreme dislike for him. This treating billions and billions of souls as puppets were something Xue Ying could not agree with. Besides, after coming to the Deity world, his understanding towards the Temporal Island Lord increased, causing him to loathe him even further.
Amongst the rulers, Xue Ying had the greatest aversion to him!
“Greetings teacher, Abyss Primogenitor, Temporal Island Lord.” Xue Ying respectfully greeted them.
The Abyss Primogenitor chuckled before nodding. It seemed he was quite friendly.
As for Temporal Island Lord, he glanced at Xue Ying with a cold expression before turning to look at another space. He was too lazy to reply. The dislike was mutual.
