Chapter 644: The First Battle
Translator: Radiant Translations Editor: Radiant Translations
‘The first prey.’ Even though Xue Ying was flying normally, the blood within his body was boiling. Bloodshed God Emperor might have let him go and create some wreckages, but he had his plans. What he wanted to do was to kill the other party! But Xue Ying understood that killing a protector from the Ancestor Mother Religion was tough.
“Monarch Hex Cricket.” Xue Ying transmitted a message via karma.
“Monarch Dong Bo.” It was continuously raining black rain in the ‘Black Rain Eden’ of the Six Heavenly Wheel. On top of a vast black water lake, a stone head about a dozen meters wide was seen poking out from the surface. A middle-aged man who was wearing an azure and beautiful-looking robe sat on top of the stone head. His forehead had two soft feelers, and his eyes were glowing in green.
A gigantic dimmed green light pillar reached up to the sky with him at the center; this pillar extended to the deepest part of the sky dome. The dimmed light pillar covered an area with a range of half a trillion kilometers! It was emitting a force that felt incomparably dreadful.
This was Monarch Hex Cricket!
Not just powerful existences from the Deity world, even those from the Dark Abyss respected Monarch Hex Cricket sincerely from deep within their hearts! Rulers relatively admired him too because Monarch Hex Cricket was someone who had wholeheartedly served the entire cosmos. He was extremely ‘benevolent’ and had a good reputation, a kind, and an honest nature. Naturally, his combat power was huge too–ranking at 12th of the entire Cosmos Deity-Demon List.
Relying solely on his strength, no Rulers could kill him! His avatar stayed permanently within the lower three Edens of the ‘Six Heavenly Wheel’, and only those beneath the Ruler realm could come in. Other than guarding this place for the entire cosmos, he was providing safety for his avatar since nobody beneath the level of Ruler and nothing in the lower three Edens could threaten him at all.
“Why did you suddenly contact me? Unless a fish has taken the bait?” Monarch Hex Cricket chuckled as he transmitted a message over.
“Right, a fish has taken the bait.” Xue Ying replied. Not long after entering the lower three Edens, Monarch Hex Cricket had contacted him. The two talked for a moment, and he did not hide the matter of reaching the ‘Opening realm’ from Monarch Hex Cricket for he was trustworthy. It was also impossible for him to betray the cosmos because firstly, there was no reason for him to betray and secondly, even if he betrayed, it would not be because of this minor matter which Xue Ying had revealed.
“It is just a little fish, a male who was relatively stooped. He has green hair that is dancing about.” Xue Ying answered, “Monarch Hex Cricket, do you know of him?”
“I do not know his name, but the Ancestor Mother Religion has attempted to attack this place I’m guarding before, so I am relatively knowledgeable about this group of protectors. This stooped male is considered average in strength amongst those protectors from Ancestor Mother Religion, though he specializes in controlling the void, especially when his hair can restrict the enemy.” Monarch Hex Cricket warmly laughed as he answered the question. The surrounding black rain was pitter-pattering, yet they could not touch him at all, “The Ancestor Mother Religion sent him over because he knows that your defenses are very formidable and can’t be killed. Thus, they wanted to capture you.”
“I understand.” Xue Ying had a baseline immediately in his heart.
“You must be wary. The Ancestor Mother Religion originates from another cosmos. Even though their realm is very low, and their techniques are truly crude, their bodies are mighty. Even this stooped male who specializes in control and is an ordinary protector, the pure strength of his fleshy body is enough to fight against me. The stronger protectors amongst them have a combat power that far surpasses mine.” Monarch Hex Cricket transmitted over.
“But they lack in the realm compared to you, Monarch Hex Cricket.” Xue Ying immediately said.
From Xue Ying’s perspective, strength and realm were both complementary. Purely having power without realm at all would only allow the user to employ one-tenth his full force.
“Monarch, he is about to act. I’ll play with him first.” Xue Ying transmitted over.
“Be careful.” Monarch Hex Cricket did not speak anymore.
Being the second person entering the Lower Three Edens who came from the same cosmos as him, Monarch Hex Cricket felt concerned over Xue Ying. It’s just that the ‘Black Rain Eden’ was too important that he had to stay here without leaving it unguarded.
Xue Ying borrowed upon the ‘Dao of Mirage’. The Mirage World began extending out, allowing him to observe the actions of that Ancestor Mother Religion protector constantly.
Protector Cheng Yun was spying upon Xue Ying, and his body had merged into the void; he was moving closer to him continuously.
‘Hmph hmph hmph, a stage four World Deity dares to enter the Six Heavenly Wheel. Is it because he thinks his defenses are great? Even if your defenses are exceptional, and other protectors and I might have a hard time killing you, but capturing you will be easy.’ Protector Cheng Yun was moving relatively quickly towards Xue Ying. At the moment when the gap in between the two reached just a few hundred million kilometers, Protector Cheng Yun did not dare get closer.
His eyes were glowing in green as he stared at the distant Xue Ying who was flying as if he was ignorant of everything.
The green hair of his started overgrowing. Every single strand of hair began entering the void and started surrounding Xue Ying.
This green hair was akin to a weapon. It elongated at a breakneck speed, and soon, it formed a sphere that completely sealed Xue Ying within. And Xue Ying was located at the center of this sphere that was formed from countless hairs. At this moment, he had an appearance as if he was oblivious of it; he was still flying on. As he flew, this spherical prison formed from hair was also flying along with him.
‘Too easy.’ Protector Cheng Yun thought with his heart. At the same time, his hair started shrinking.
The few hundred of millions of kilometers spherical prison was also beginning to contract.
Naturally, this disturbance could not be hidden any longer.
“What?” Xue Ying was ‘startled’ as he looked around him. He could only see countless green hairs appearing, enveloping the entire void as it was madly moving closer towards him.
“Hahaha, Dong Bo Xue Ying, you should just give up and be captured.” The stooped male appeared from afar. His back had countless flying hair which eventually extended out to form the large prison that surrounded Xue Ying. This stooped male, ‘Protector Cheng Yun’, was staring at Xue Ying. He knew that Xue Ying had a very formidable teleportation escaping technique.
He was waiting to see if Xue Ying would genuinely teleport and escape.
“Idiot from the Ancestor Mother Religion!” Xue Ying extended his right hand, causing the Blood Serpent Spear to appear, “Die for me!”
“Just with you alone?” Protector Cheng Yun sneered.
The Blood Serpent Spear in Xue Ying’s hand began elongating swiftly. This black spear with crimson patterns on it started distorting. At this moment, the spear had rapidly extended into the shape of a sky pillar, directly piercing out fiercely. Xue Ying’s current spear technique had undergone a qualitative transformation. After returning from the ‘Starting Ground’, he had entered closed-door cultivation to refine the Blood Serpent Spear.
During the process of refining the Blood Serpent Spear, he had comprehended part of the eternal level ‘Dao of Slaughter’ because only after his comprehension had reached a certain realm could he refine the spear.
During comprehension, Xue Ying fused his understanding of the ‘Dao of Slaughter’ together with the ‘Dao of Mirage’ which he just comprehended, completely using them to hone his spear techniques. The current spear technique was much more enigmatic as compared to earlier before he entered the Starting Ground.
This Protector Cheng Yun from the Ancestor Mother Religion had a realm at the ordinary stage four World Deity level. His realm was way too lacking as compared to Xue Ying’s, and could not see the profound mysteries inherent within this spear.
“You are still thinking of struggling? What a joke.” Protector Cheng Yun did not seem to mind. At that moment, countless hair began enveloping around the incoming spear.
The crimson spearhead had a world vortex appearing vaguely. There were many warped, broken worlds amidst the world vortex. Right at the center of this vortex was a terrifying killing intent.
A True God weapon which had an eternal Dao of Slaughter inherent within was utilized to display this move.
Furthermore, with Xue Ying attaining the fifth level large success of the “Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body” and the fifth volume large success of the “Luminous Sun” strength, those firm and strong hairs which were tangling their way over, had been torn apart the moment they clashed due to the crude usage of realm, by the world vortex formed vaguely at the spearhead of the Blood Serpent Spear.
“Si la~” The spear forcibly tore through countless hair, directly piercing its way towards Protector Cheng Yun himself.
“What?” Protector Cheng Yun’s expression lost color. He was very confident of the firmness of his hair and did not believe that the other party’s spear could so easily break through the obstacle surrounding him. But no matter how he did not want to believe, that spear had already pierced its way over.
‘He is a stage four World Deity who relied on absolute art and his Flying Knife True God weapon to barely fight against Leaf Saint? What a joke! He is absolutely at the Paragon realm. With such a powerful spear technique, he should have opened some Slaughter Dao.’ Protector Cheng Yun was startled entirely by the power from this spear.
