Chapter 635: Pondering in Front of the Grass House
The black dog sniffed around Xue Ying before baring his teeth and howled, “Brat, you are just at the World Deity realm and is too weak. The World Deity realm, World realm, Opening realm, and Ruler realm. Master has left behind four levels of trials, and you are at the lowest level. Continue to cultivate.” Saying that he wagged his tail before sauntering away.
Xue Ying was speechless.
He had been looked down upon, though the other party was able to injure the Lake Heart Island master, and was especially left behind by forefather to protect this Starting Ground. Thus, it had the qualifications to speak about him.
“It is rare for those at World Deity realm to come here.” The white-haired old man laughed too, “Go go go, let us go over.”
Saying that they continued walking towards the central three-story grass house.
As Xue Ying followed along, he asked, “Are there treasures in that three-story grass house?”
The white-haired old man gave a mysterious laugh, “Don’t think it is just a three-story grass house. It is the most important place within the entire Starting Ground. Forefather has once lived that central grass house and only those who passed the Ruler realm trial have the qualifications to enter. To the left of the grass house… one must pass through the trial of the Opening realm before being able to enter.”
“Then what about the right house?” Xue Ying asked, “Are we heading to the grass house on the right?”
“It is I who will enter!” The white-haired old man shook his head, “You are at the World Deity realm and do not have the qualifications to enter. The right grass house is a treasury. You should consider properly at this moment what treasure you want. I’ll enter and bring it over for you!”
Xue Ying nodded.
At the same time, he felt helpless.
The lowest World Deity realm and World realm seemed not to be emphasized upon by that forefather. One did not even have the qualifications to enter the grass house.
Opening realm meant Paragons. And one realm above that was the Rulers.
The Ruler realm was where Bloodshed God Emperor, Temporal Island Lord, and other Rulers were at.
Only those at these two levels had the qualifications to enter the grass house!
Xue Ying and the old man were just like mortals. They did not walk at a fast speed and had spent quite some time before finally getting close to the grass house.
“We are here.” Xue Ying looked at the grass house just one to two hundred meters away. At that moment, he felt his heart blazing.
As he walked closer…
Suddenly, the surrounding world by the grass house started distorting in his eyes. He was walking step by step towards it, yet the grass house remained forever there with its distance unchanged.
“This, what is happening?” Xue Ying felt stunned. At the same time, he felt his combat power rapidly recovering.
“Reaching the grass house, your combat power will completely recover.” The white-haired old man said, “As for the transformation of the surrounding world, even though the grass house might be in front of your eyes, in reality, it is under the protection of countless of worlds. If not for me bringing you over, if an outsider is attacking his way in, it will be almost impossible for him to get through the countless of worlds and reach the grass house. Naturally, swordmaster has achieved it once, and the moment he decided to travel forward, nothing could obstruct him at all.”
Xue Ying nodded.
This forefather would undoubtedly have set some protection.
Xue Ying continued moving forward while observing the many distorted worlds.
‘So interesting.’ Xue Ying was thoroughly observing it, ‘Forefather is very amazing. His operation of the world has reached an unfathomable stage. It is so much more profound than all those world arrays I’ve seen in that broken scroll or the experiences and from the Lake Heart Island.’
‘The world should be a real world. However, it is layered with distortion as if they are all illusory.’
‘If not for someone guiding me along, I might just enter the illusory world and be trapped inside for eternity.’
Xue Ying sighed.
This was an illusory world. But the world within the illusion did not seem any different from the ‘real world’! Thus, if he immersed himself within, it would become challenging to escape from it.
This method set by the forefather of the Starting Ground was more profound than the ‘Mirage Dao’ within his True God weapon flying knife.
‘It doesn’t seem intentional.’ Xue Ying sighed as he continued observing.
As he walked, Xue Ying’s footstep became slower and slower. The white-haired old man noticed this before chuckling. He had also slowed down his steps. He did not rush Xue Ying, and neither did he say anything! Because anyone who entered… had no limits to the time they could stay here in the Starting Ground! It was alright even if they remained here until the Cosmos Apocalypse.
Gradually, Xue Ying walked slower and slower and eventually stopped moving. He then closed his eyes.
‘Who would have thought that the illusory world which forefather set has given him enlightenment.’ The white-haired old man was grinning.
Xue Ying closed his eyes.
Cultivating for 700,000 years, he had consolidated the teachings by that commander from the Destruction Legion, teachings from Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master, and thus, he did not dare to seek power deliberately! But with his comprehension ability, it was not challenging to comprehend the other Deity hearts at all. Thus, Xue Ying was able to comprehend them with most of his concentration remained on studying the profound mysteries of the world.
Profound mysteries of the world had many similarities with the profound mysteries of the mirage.
Xue Ying had comprehended both of them together. That was how he could create the five big secret skills. He wanted to use the world in encompassing the other Deity hearts to grasp hold of the complete law of the world.
Saying that it was 700,000 years, adding up the time-accelerated time, he had spent so much more time on studying the profound mysteries of the world.
And at this moment–
The many layers of illusory world surrounding the grass house within the Starting Ground had given Xue Ying a glimpse the more profound ‘world’, seeing a more formidable usage of the profound mysteries of the world. Naturally, he was enlightened.
In his mind, countless comprehension was clashing together as inspirations formed continuously!
Day passed by day.
Reaching the level of Xue Ying, the appearance of many inspirations would allow one to deduce even deeper. When the many profound mysteries were fused together, he would extrapolate them before receiving a new appreciation towards the ‘world’. This process naturally required time.
‘I wonder how long this brat will cultivate for.’ The white-haired old man who had sat down on his butt began lying back and sleep.
In the blink of an eye, it had been a year and two months.
The comprehension and inferring within the mind of Xue Ying was fusing together, forming a grand new understanding! And at this moment…
Xue Ying fell in a daze.
Just like a seed within the soil, the seed would eventually break the surface and germinate. It would form a fruit.
Xue Ying opened his eyes, looking at the many layers of the distorted world. This was the illusory world. Formerly, he felt that they were extraordinarily profound and unfathomable, yet at this moment, under his observation, he could vaguely see the shapeless law operating around these worlds before forming a vast illusory world. Xue Ying was able to spy upon this unformed law.
‘The law of the world is just like lock and chain. The moment one becomes imprisoned, he would always be within the enclosure of prison no matter what he comprehended. Only by breaking it could he open his path, grasping everything he has understood.” Xue Ying could feel the strength he had now–this was entirely his strength! He could kill and suppress the other, and nobody could take away this strength from him.
“Realm should be fundamental.” Xue Ying muttered.
“Mn?” The white-haired old man who had been sleeping woke up all of a sudden. He opened his eyes and looked at Xue Ying who was by his side.
Xue Ying stood there. His entire figure seemed illusory and real at the same time.
He was a real person, yet he appeared unreal as if he was of one entity with the countless illusory worlds.
“Opening realm?” The white-haired old man had some uncertainty and suspicions.
