Chapter 640: Void Soul Liquid
Translator: Radiant Translations Editor: Radiant Translations
“You have opened the Dao already?” Even the calm Bloodshed God Emperor turned taciturn momentarily as he looked at this disciple in front of him.
His teacher was staring at him silently.
Xue Ying was filled with slight awkwardness as he replied, “I have never thought that this would happen. It’s just that after being attacked by the Ancestor Mother Religion, I went on to the Starting Ground! I was fortunate enough to survive there, yet who would have thought that right when I was about to leave, I saw an illusory world within the Starting Ground. The forefather created this illusory world, and it is filled with such profoundness that I was startled. I’m sure teacher understands that I have always been focusing on comprehending the profound mysteries of the world, and as I was looking at it, I became immersed unknowingly, comprehending many things, and naturally comprehended the ‘Dao of Mirage’. Once I have done that, I can’t even forget it!”
“You are surely amazing. “The Bloodshed God Emperor finally said.
Xue Ying hurriedly added, “This disciple has already comprehended it, and it is too late to feel regret.”
“What is there to be regretful about?” Bloodshed God Emperor retorted.
Xue Ying was stunned.
“Being able to open the Dao is a good thing. Why be regretful about it?” Bloodshed God Emperor took in a deep breath before carefully looking at this disciple in front of him, “I am just astonished that this treasured disciple of mine isn’t just ordinarily amazing, he has opened the Dao after cultivating for a million years! Comparing with you, Bamboo Mountain might have cultivated quite fast, yet he is far worse as compared to you. I as the teacher felt kind of ashamed.”
Only then did Xue Ying let out a sigh of relief, “I still thought Teacher is furious with me and wanted to reprimand me.”
He did not mind opening a Dao.
When he was tortured by the ‘Six Ghosts Resentment Hex Poison’, Xue Ying had seen past life and death. Even if he could not become a Ruler during this entire cosmos epoch and eventually die, Xue Ying would still be filled with gratefulness. When he saw his teacher become flustered, he was worried his teacher had become disappointed with him! After all, Bloodshed God Emperor had once reminded him of that before.
“I don’t even have the time to praise you, so why reprimand you?” Bloodshed God Emperor laughed out loud, “Actually, it will not affect anything even if you open a Dao first. As long as you become a Ruler before the end of this cosmos epoch, it’ll be fine. I believe that since you could reach the Paragon realm within a million years, it will not be a difficult task for you to become a Ruler in the long period after that.”
“Teacher, after the cosmos epoch, is it possible for us to live after transcending?” Xue Ying asked curiously.
Previously when he asked the white-haired old man at the Starting Ground, the white-haired old man became furious.
Xue Ying did not dare to ask more. He was currently asking his teacher.
“The end of this cosmos epoch?” Bloodshed God Emperor paused for a while. The expression on his face was quite complicated. It was filled with expectations and worry, and a little uneasy.
“You will know in the future.” Bloodshed God Emperor did not explain more.
Xue Ying could have a vague guess about his teacher’s expression and did not ask more.
“What kind of Dao is the Dao of Mirage?” Bloodshed God Emperor asked. He had his guesses, yet nobody had ever grasped hold of the Dao of Mirage during this cosmos epoch.
Xue Ying explained, “It isn’t the simple Mirage Deity Heart any longer. Instead, it consists of an even greater and vaster Mirage World. The Mirage World could transform and encompass the real world! When I walk within the Mirage World, if the enemy isn’t able to forcibly permeate into the Mirage World, then they will never be able to attack me from the ordinary world.”
“Oh, this is very similar to my Shadow World.” Bloodshed God Emperor laughed at that, “If talking about assassination means, both your Dao and my Dao are ranked at the forefront of the Deity world and Abyss.”
Xue Ying agreed as well.
Both the Dao of Mirage had similar potential with the Dao of Shadow–they both transcended beyond the ordinary world.
“Being able to form an independent world meant that you would be good at assassination.” Bloodshed God Emperor mentioned, “Other Daos such as Bamboo Mountain’ Destructive Lightning, or Huo Cheng’s ‘flame’ might be powerful, yet they are ‘Daos’ meant for combat, and that happens in the current world still.”
“Mn.” Xue Ying nodded.
There were differences in the Dao opened by a Paragon.
Like Leaf Saint, Paragon Huo Cheng and Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master or even amongst the Rulers, Myriad God Palace Head, Purgatory Ruler and others, even though they had all opened a Dao, it remained within the ordinary world. Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master’s ‘Destructive Lightning’, was terrifying when displayed and contained a destructive nature that could kill weaker Paragons in a direct battle.
Xue Ying had instead borrowed upon the Dao he opened to control another world directly. Naturally, the ‘Mirage World’ was still at the opening stage, and could not compare with Bloodshed God Emperor’s ‘Shadow Space’ which had attained eternity.
“I originally prepared a gift for you that will enable you to open a Dao as early as possible.” Bloodshed God Emperor laughed, “But now that you have reached the Opening realm, my preparation is not needed anymore.”
Xue Ying was stunned.
His teacher had long said he would be giving him something, though Xue Ying did not mind that at all since he had absolute arts and True God weapons, and was not in need of anything. He immediately answered, “Teacher, in the future, if you can find any treasures appropriate for me, it’ll not be too late to give it to disciple.”
“You have already reached the Opening realm. Naturally, I’ll have to give you a gift. If this delays, when you become a Ruler… it’d be tough if I were to take out something that will satisfy you.” Bloodshed God Emperor laughed. At the same time, he looked at the void beside him.
The void was torn.
A black bird flew out from within, landing on the shoulder of Bloodshed God Emperor.
“Bring out a bottle of the ‘Void Soul Liquid’.” Bloodshed God Emperor said to the black bird.
“Void Soul Liquid?” The black bird opened his eyes and weirdly shouted out, “Bloodshed, we only have one and a half bottle left! And you want a bottle?”
“Bring it.” Bloodshed God Emperor ordered.
Only then did black bird unwillingly opened its mouth. At that moment there was a distortion in the time-space tunnel within its mouth, and a bottle came flying out and landing in the hands of Bloodshed God Emperor. It was a palm-sized black bottle
Bloodshed God Emperor looked at this black bottle with a complex expression, “The biggest danger that I have encountered since I cultivated is to obtain it.”
Xue Ying was startled.
The biggest danger that his teacher experienced is used to get this treasure. Even Fifth Uncle Master Black Bird was not so willing to give it away.
“Teacher, this is too precious.” Xue Ying said.
“That time, I was a Paragon, and have gone into another cosmos to get it after suffering greatly.” Bloodshed God Emperor laughed, “Alright. Even though it is even important to Rulers, there are still many more precious treasures which Teacher has. This Void soul Liquid has a unique characteristic that is quite rare, in that it can strengthen your soul.”
“Strengthen your soul?” Xue Ying’s eyes brightened. It was the fusion of the soul and the laws that formed the true deity heart. Comprehending a ‘Dao’ that was strong would similarly make the true deity heart stronger. This was the conventional way of cultivating their soul in this cosmos.
“Right, I have already used it before, and having it with me is useless. I have given your senior disciple brother Monarch Green a bottle, and that is when your teacher has just become a Paragon.” Bloodshed God Emperor laughed, “This bottle is for you.”
“Brat.” The black bird on the shoulder of the God Emperor was slightly angry as he snorted, “This is the final bottle in this cosmos. I have only half a bottle left.”
“Black bird, Xue Ying has already opened a Dao. With his comprehension ability, I’ll naturally have to aid him in becoming stronger.” Bloodshed God Emperor said.
“What!” The black bird who was originally angry had become startled. He looked at Xue Ying was an astonishment, “You have opened a Dao?”
“Mn.” Xue Ying nodded.
“This is only a million years, and this cultivation speed is much more terrifying than Monarch Green. Bloodshed, this disciple of yours is very formidable.” The Black Bird was genuinely shocked. Cultivating for a million years was indeed very short, and it was quite unusual for one to become a stage two World Deity after a million years of cultivation. Xue Ying had already transcended across the entire World Deity realm, jumping out of the World realm and opened a Dao.
“Alright, properly groom him. Use all your strength in doing so. Bloodshed, the chances of this disciple becoming a Ruler isn’t any worse than that for Monarch Green.” The black bird added.
“I naturally know of it.” Bloodshed God Emperor threw the palm-sized bottle to Xue Ying.
Xue Ying received it.
“There is a need to cherish it. After using it, if you discover that your soul is unable to improve any further, you could give the remaining to whoever you want. Naturally, the soul must reach at least the powerful existence level before they could use it. Most stage four World Deities will not be able to withstand this with their soul and will dissipate away. You must remember, if your soul can still be improved further, you must not give it away. You must do your best to improve your soul further. This is extremely helpful to your cultivation.” Bloodshed God Emperor ordered, “This bottle is something that can’t be exchanged even with ten True God weapons.”
“I understand.” Xue Ying nodded.
“In a while, after you leave, you should immediately use it. If other Rulers know of it, they will not care about respect and will come and snatch it away.” Bloodshed God Emperor sighed, “After all, this is an opportunity of mine from another cosmos, and there is nothing of such thing in this cosmos.”
“Many thanks, teacher.” Xue Ying felt grateful.
“I only have three of you personal disciples, so if I don’t help you all, who would I help?” Bloodshed God Emperor chuckled as he looked at Xue Ying.
From the perspective of Bloodshed God Emperor, Monarch Green might have the power to match Rulers and had high status, and Xue Ying was much weaker as compared to him, yet in his heart, he had already placed these two disciples side by side. Xue Ying had only started cultivating later, and as for Gu Zang? Compared to Xue Ying and Monarch Green, he was much weaker.
