Chapter 646: The Anxiety of Ancestor Mother Religion
Translator: Radiant Translations Editor: Radiant Translations
Protector Cheng Yun’s expression changed. This flying knife came with less brute force than the Blood Serpent Spear, but it was harder for him to evade or guard against it. It was all due to the flying knife traveling inside the Mirage before suddenly appearing right in front of his eyebrows! Even when Xue Ying was attacking with his Blood Serpent Spear, his attacks were not so explosive, and Protector Cheng Yun could somehow defend against them. When the spear came, Protector Cheng Yun had protected himself with numerous hair strands. He was also focused on defending, diminishing the offensive power significantly before it could even reach him. In the end, the Blood Serpent Spear only left some bleeding cuts on him.
However, Xue Ying’s attack with the flying knife was entirely on another level. With a deeper understanding of the ‘Dao of Slaughter’, there was no way for Protector Cheng Yun to withstand this attack.
‘His flying knife has destroyed my head. I can always regenerate some parts of my body, but not all. Still, this attack caused me to lose 1% of my life force.’ Protector Cheng Yun looked at the hole in his body. Blood Serpent Venom infested the flesh around his wound. This venom was consuming his life force, and if he did nothing, the venom would eventually kill him when he spent his life force. Thus, he had no other way but to dig out his flesh and discard it.
But if he dug out all the injured parts on his body, he would also have to abandon the life force in those parts. That added up to an amount no less than 30% of his life force! If this continued, there was no way he could maintain this state of power eruption.
If he was unable to keep this state, Xue Ying could reach and kill him easily.
‘It is vital for me to suppress the venom and sustain my body right now. But he will continue attacking with his flying knife. Each attack will deprive me of more life force. If I used up too much life force, I’d not be able to erupt with power again, and that will affect my flying speed.” Protector Cheng Yun become anxious.
‘If this keep going…’
‘I may die in his hands.’
Protector Cheng Yun became more panicked and anxious.
Coming to this Cultivation Cosmos, he knew he could die here. But if he had to die, he would rather die for something worthwhile. That way, he would be compensated handsomely by the religion. They could even bring him here to the Cultivation Cosmos again.
‘I’ll not gain anything if I were killed by Dong Bo Xue Ying here. I will not gain anything if I die here.’ Protector Cheng Yun panicked, ‘If I die, I’ll have no way to enter this cosmos again. No, I can’t die here! Absolutely not!’
Many thoughts flickered through his mind as the flying knife hit him. At the same time, he tried contacting the Religious Leader, “Religious Leader, Religious Leader, save me. Quickly ask Big Brother Huo Zhu to come rescue me!”
In the distant base of Ancestor Mother Religion in this Cultivation Cosmos,
Inside the base, within a grand bronze hall that was mottled with vestiges, a greenish-brown figure was sitting in the center of the hall. This huge fanged-hunk who was only wrapped in several broken pieces of cloth, had a startled look: “Protector Cheng Yun, you can’t escape from him?”
“His weapon contains some venom. My body is barely suppressing it and is unable to force it out or neutralize it. His True God flying knife is even more sinister. It could come out from the Mirage and appear right in front of me. I have no way to defend against it! Moreover, that flying knife not only shattered my head but the slaughtering power within it has also destroyed the life force in my head.”
“Every time I received his attack, it would also affect my flying speed.”
“If this continues, it is highly possible for me to die in his hand.” Protector Cheng Yun urgently asked for help.
“Alright, but there’s still some distance between you and Huo Zhu. you have to try your best to resist,” replied Religious Leader.
“Ask them to come as soon as possible.” urged Protector Cheng Yun.
Without any hesitation, the Religious Leader immediately ordered the other four protectors who stationed in Blood Devil Eden, “Huo Zhu, you and the three, hurry up to where Cheng Yun is! You have to rescue him. Each of our member here is precious. We must keep it intact.”
Anger appeared in the eyes of the Religious Leader.
They had made a considerable miscalculation this time.
“If the lives from this Cultivation Cosmos died, they could easily form another avatar. But it’s not the same for us.” The Religious Leader muttered.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying, what kind of strength does he have?”
The Religious Leader suppressed his anger.
“Religious Leader, I have already gone to the River of Time to investigate. It appears that Dong Bo Xue Ying’s body in the River of Time is quite significant. The body occupies one-tenth the width of the river. Even though he might seem like a stage four World Deity, he should have opened his Dao just like the Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master.” a voice transmission came over.
“He has only cultivated for a million years, yet he has opened his Dao?” The Religious Leader became all the more furious and anxious, “He has recently opened a Dao and could threaten Cheng Yun’s life already?”
No matter how anxious he was, he could do nothing about it. There was no way for him to enter the Lower Three Edens. Even if he could, he had to fly slowly within.
The law of the world was suppressing the Six Heavenly Wheel and other historical remains. Unless someone came with a comprehension that rode above the law of the world, they would be unable to fly or move fast inside those places. Only those like Temporal Island Lord who was well-versed in time-space law could penetrate the space and travel through the insides of Six Heavenly Wheel and Three Chieftains Sacred Mountain.
Xue Ying could also borrow his Mirage World to move at high speed within the historical remains.
It’s a pity that those Ancestor Mother Religion Protectors had low realm comprehension. The ‘Realm’ was not their original specialties. It was their great physical strength which they had an advantage. If they could cover their flaws with excellent comprehension of the realm, then there would be no way for this Cultivation Cosmos to fight against them.
On another side of Blood Devil Eden, four figures were gathered outside five stone houses on a desolate plain. These were the other protectors who were stationed here with Protector Cheng Yun. There were three men and one woman. All four of them had an unordinary aura, and Protector Huo Zhu led this group. Just like Protector Cheng Yun, three of them here was ordinary protectors. Only their leader, Protector Huo Zhu, had reached the apex level of which he could easily fight and escape against Monarch Hex Cricket.
Previously, they had received Protector Cheng Yun’s transmission. But due to his low status, they thought it was impossible for the Ancestor Mother Religion to send them in to rescue him. Furthermore, the four were also in the midst of refining a medicinal liquid. This medicinal liquid was meant to overcome one of the dangerous regions within Blood Devil Eden.
“We haven’t finished refining the medicinal liquid.” whispered one of them, a lady in a grey robe.
“Put it aside first; it’s more important for us to save Brother Cheng Yun. It’s not easy for each of us to come to this cultivation cosmos, so we have to rescue him.” A faint trace of anger appeared on Protector Huo Zhu eyes.
“Go.” Another protector, one with bluish green eye bluntly said.
“I have already tried my best to protect this medicinal liquid. Hopefully, it will be in good condition when we return.” The lady in a grey robe sighed.
“Let’s go.” said an old man who was entirely covered in purple. Only a pair of his eyes were revealed.
“Sou sou sou sou.”
Under Huo Zhu’s lead, the four of them changed out as streams of light. Using their fastest speed, they flew to Protector Cheng Yun’s location.
While Ancestor Mother Religion was trying their best to save Protector Cheng Yun, Xue Ying was currently going all out to kill his opponent!
It might seem that Xue Ying was ‘trying his utmost’ to finish Protector Cheng Yun, yet in truth, he still not going all out. He wasn’t using his Dao of Mirage! From the start, Xue Ying had not exhibited any aspect of his Dao of Mirage. Even when he was using the True God flying knife, he was merely activating the Profound Mystery of Mirage existing in the flying knife. He did not apply his comprehension at all.
Only then could he hide his scheme even further.
Xue Ying was currently flying at high speed. He threw out the flying knife once again.
Once he threw his flying knife, the knife instantly vanished.
“Damn.” cursed Protector Cheng Yun in front. When he saw Xue Ying throwing his flying knife, Protector Cheng Yun who was trying his best to escape, panicked. Nevertheless, there was nothing he could do since the knife would have entered his body the moment it appeared in the real world.
Protector Cheng Yun stomach exploded. His body was torn into two. However, following that, his body rapidly recovered. The naked eyes could even see his recovery. To minimize his losses, Protector Cheng Yun had even patched back some of his flesh that contained the Blood Serpent Venom.
‘I nearly lost 2% of my life force this time?’ Protector Cheng Yun felt bitter. He was trying to put more distance between him and Xue Ying. But each time the flying knife struck him, it would significantly affect his speed. Xue Ying would also take this opportunity to close their distance.
Soon, the flying knife appeared once again in Xue Ying’s hand.
Flying in the Mirage world, the flying knife could move faster than that in the real world.
The knife was attacking Protector Cheng Yun again and again.
‘I’m finished.’ Protector Cheng Yun thought. He did not give up on his escape.
But he knew Protector Huo Zhu and the others could not make it in time. Calculating the time they needed, they would not be arriving anytime soon. Previously, he had needed two days to reach here. Although Protector Huo Zhu had a faster speed, he still required a day at least to come. As for him? He felt he could not hold up for half an hour more.
“No!” When the flying knife struck him again, it consumed another portion of his life force. As he had been using some life force to suppress the Blood Serpent Venom, the remaining life force in him could no longer boost him. Without any boost, his speed began rapidly decreasing. In the beginning, both Protector Cheng Yun and Xue Ying were comparable in strength, though Xue Ying had a higher realm comprehension than him. With this last attack and its impact on Protector Cheng Yun’s life force, Xue Ying was able to fly much faster than Protector Cheng Yun.
“You will die.” Seeing that his speed was much faster than his opponent now, Xue Ying let out a grin.
“I’m finished.” Grief and resentment filled Protector Cheng Yun.
At this moment, Xue Ying was only looking forward to killing his opponent, yet he did not know what killing a protector meant! From his viewpoint, the protector could refine another body out! Thus, he would only be earning some treasures.
But he was wrong. He did not know the difference between the two cosmos.
