Chapter 647: Despair
Having just attained the realm of Paragon, Xue Ying could get rid of an expert on the same level. Furthermore, it was an enemy from a different cosmos.
That was an accomplishment that made cultivators excited!
‘I didn’t expect that the use of the True God Weapon flying knife is so huge.’ Xue Ying was shocked, ‘Back then that Leaf Saint could sense the flying knife slightly earlier, yet the realm of the Ancestor Mother Religion Protectors is too low, and he unexpectedly cannot sense it at all!’
There was not the slightest bit of sensing or defense.
The flying knife was able to produce a great result each time it was used.
As the flying knife approached, Protector Chen Yun became more and more indignant and unreconciled. He reminisced about his hometown and recollected about the noble aspirations he had when he arrived at the Cultivator Cosmos.
“I will accomplish something great.”
“After entering the Cultivator Cosmos, perhaps I could even establish a sect, and become a religious leader.”
Back then he had heroic and lofty emotions!
Now as his injuries worsened, Protector Cheng Yun felt more and more aggrieved: ‘This avatar that has entered the Cultivator Cosmos will die soon. My death feels unworthy, and I’ve not accomplished any great merits after coming to the Cultivator Cosmos. The religion will definitely not pay a great price to let me nurture another avatar and come here.”
“Cheng Yun, die!” Xue Ying had already approached rapidly. His flying knife was thrown out once again.
Protector Cheng Yun only glanced at Xue Ying.
His vitality was being eroded, turning him incapable of suppressing the Blood Serpent Venom. The Blood Serpent Venom had also begun to spread within his body. Ugly veins appeared on the surface of Protector Cheng Yun’s skin as he looked at Xue Ying: “I have never imagined that such a simple mission will end up with my death at your hands.”
“What are you talking about?” Xue Ying felt odd, “Am I not killing just an avatar? Why the need to despair?”
Although he was slightly puzzled, Xue Ying did not hesitate.
The Blood Serpent Spear once more struck forth. This time, Protector Cheng Yun did not block it at all. He let the spear hit his body, allowing it impale his body, and causing his body to and disappear.
As he shattered and disappeared, Protector Cheng Yun continued to look at the vast, blood-colored skies.
“Cultivation Cosmos, goodbye, I will not have the chance to see you again.”
His body completely disappeared.
Xue Ying suddenly understood, ‘The blood serpent poison is truly formidable, for it had pervaded his entire body and destroyed him from the inside.’
‘The body of this Ancestor Mother Religion Protector is quite strong. Once he goes all out to explode, its power will be frightening. Fortunately, I have two absolute arts, both of which are extremely formidable in the aspect of strength. I can still resist it with all my defenses.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly. Under his most robust defense, the opponent can only display a tenth of his strength.
But just this tenth…
If he did not have the “Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body” and “Luminous Sun”, he would be utterly suppressed, and could only hide inside the Mirage World!
‘This is only an ordinary protector, yet his power is so strong.’ Xue Ying inwardly muttered, ‘I don’t even know if my plan will work. Even if it didn’t, with the help of the Mirage Dao, survival isn’t an issue.’
Xue Ying looked around at the treasures floating in midair–they were left behind by protector Cheng Yun. He waved his hand.
He kept these treasures and would thoroughly inspect them in a while.
‘This Ancestor Mother Religion protector is somewhat odd. It was merely the loss of an avatar. Why do I find that things aren’t right?’ Back when they fought, he had not thought much about it. But now, the more he thought about it, the weirder the entire incident was.
If this was the Cultivator Cosmos…
Having an avatar killed?
Typically one would be indignant–If you dare to slay my avatar, then wait for my revenge! One would be distressed over their weapons and treasures at most since they could nurture another avatar in the future. Their original body could then easily split his soul in two. This damage from the splitting of the soul could be easily recovered as well. If no treasures were lost, then losing a body wasn’t an issue at all.
“Monarch Hex Cricket.” Xue Ying directly transmitted through karma, asking, “I just slew one of the protectors of the Ancestor Mother Religion, yet the protector was in great despair. I keep feeling that things aren’t right.”
In the skies of the Blood Devil Eden.
A rapidly flying flame rainbow light stopped.
Protector Huo Zhu and the other three were all stunned.
“Cheng Yun has died.” The grey-robed female protector slowly said, “I truly didn’t expect that just after arriving at the Cultivator Cosmos, he would die like this.”
“He was killed by a stage four World Deity.” The blue-eyed man grimly laughed, “It’s truly not worth the effort.”
“Religious Leader has also said that although that Xue Ying is a stage four World Deity, he has already opened his Dao, and is equivalent to their Paragons.” The grey-robed female protector said.
“A newly advanced Paragon had exterminated Cheng Yun?” The old man wrapped in a purple robe that merely exposed a pair of old eyes gloomily said.
“He was restrained by his flying knife.” Protector Huo Zhu vigorously said, grinding his teeth, “We have been ordered to arrive at the Six Heavenly Wheel. Us five have stayed here as a team for an endless amount of time without dying. I didn’t think that an unremarkable Xue Ying would cause the death of Cheng Yun.”
They were currently feeling complex.
At the same time, the incomparably furious Ancestor Mother Religious Leader immediately transmitted an order: “Protector Huo Zhu, you four work together, and kill Xue Ying for me!”
Protector Huo Zhu and the three others all responded.
They did not place Xue Ying in their eyes. After all, the four of them had worked together in the Six Heavenly Wheel, facing many dangers, and had even fought with Monarch Hex Cricket. Therefore, they did not fear Xue Ying.
“Set off.” Protector Huo Zhu’s voice vigorously resounded as he looked towards the direction of Xue Ying, “Kill that Dong Bo Xue Ying.”
“Within this Blood Devil, no one can save him.”
These four protectors at once became a ray of flame rainbow light and rapidly rushed in the direction where Xue Ying was located.
Xue Ying could guess that after killing Protector Cheng Yun, The other protectors of the Ancestor Mother Religion in the Lower Three Edens would perhaps take revenge! After all, he was a ‘Newly advanced Paragon’, and did not have much deterrence towards the Ancestor Mother Religion.
Knowing that they would come, Xue Ying had already discussed with Monarch Hex Cricket.
“You killed a protector of the Ancestor Mother Religion?” Monarch Hex Cricket replied, full of incredulous shock in his voice.
“Yes, what of it?” Xue Ying asked, “This should only be an avatar, and killing an avatar can’t be such a big deal.”
“You, you truly are amazing.” Monarch Hex Cricket exclaimed.
“What’s the matter?” Xue Ying was bewildered.
He was utterly ignorant of the Ancestor Mother Religion.
His teacher had told him many things, such as what techniques the known experts from Ancestor Mother Religion had, and what they specialized in. He also understood they had true bodies and avatars.
“Adding up the protector you have killed.” Monarch Hex Cricket said, “Our Cultivation Cosmos has only killed three protectors up till now.”
“Ah.” Xue Ying was stunned.
Had they only killed three protectors? And he had disposed of one of them?
“The Ancestor Mother Religion is known for being crafty, and in the Cultivation Cosmos, one will usually not see them at all. Only in the Lower Three Edens of the Six Heavenly Wheel is there a group of protectors since there is only me located here!” Monarch Hex Cricket explained, “In essence, they will never do things they aren’t confident of. If there are dangers, they will hide. They treasure their lives very much so! The exception is when a treasure that would turn them mad, only then will they will take the risk.”
“Thus, excluding this kill, we have only killed two protectors before.” Monarch Hex Cricket said, “I must tell this news to the eight Rulers immediately. This matter has become huge. You must also keep the treasures that protector has with you since your teacher and the others will probably wish to inspect them.”
“Mn.” Xue Ying responded.
Monarch Hex Cricket soon transmitted the information to the eight Rulers.
The Temporal Island Master, Bloodshed God Emperor, Myriad God Palace Head, Empress Qian He, Primal Master, Ruler Nile, Purgatory Ruler, and Abyss Primogenitor.
All eight of them received the information.
“That little brat Xue Ying killed one of Ancestor Mother Religion’s protectors?”
“Isn’t he a stage four World Deity?”
“Ah, he opened his Dao?”
The Rulers were all extremely astonished as they received the information since aside from the Bloodshed God Emperor, none of them knew that Xue Ying had already opened his Dao. Opening his Dao in a million years… That was terrifying! It was even more terrifying than transcending in a million years. Right now Xue Ying had not only opened a Dao, he had even gotten rid of an Ancestor Mother Religion protector within the Six Heavenly Wheel.
Xue Ying was standing on top of the peak of a mountain with the mountain wind blowing. He was leisurely enjoying the scenery when suddenly, the voice of Bloodshed God Emperor resounded, “You killed a protector of the Ancestor Mother Religion?”
“Mn.” Xue Ying responded, “Teacher, what of it?”
“Hahaha, I’m afraid that the Ancestor Mother Religion might despairing to to death at this moment.” The Bloodshed God Emperor laughed loudly, “You must take care of yourself. The Ancestor Mother Religion will not be afraid to act within the Six Heavenly Wheel. They hold an absolute advantage in strength, and there will surely be a group of protectors coming to deal against you.”
“Teacher, please be assured, this disciple has long made preparations.” Xue Ying said.
Previously, he did not display the Dao of Mirage all because he was preparing to hook more fishes.
“Teacher, you said that the Ancestor Mother Religion would be in despair?” Xue Ying asked curiously, “It is merely losing an avatar, yet why the need to feel despair?”
“Speaking of this, haha, you have gained a huge respect for your teacher this time.” The Bloodshed God Emperor was somewhat happy.
