Chapter 649: Trapped in a Deep Gouge

Next to the sleeping Ancient Demon in mid-air, Xue Ying was carefully flying inside the Mirage. He even had the urge to just tear through the void!
In an ordinary world, anywhere suppressed by the Six Heavenly Wheel could not be torn apart! But Xue Ying had complete control inside the Mirage, and he could just tear through the void. However, for the sake of avoiding the protectors of the Ancestor Mother Religion from discovering this, Xue Ying decided to not do so, or his enemies would stop chasing as soon as they realized Xue Ying could travel a few trillion kilometers within moments!
As such, despite clearly feeling the pressure, Xue Ying could only continue to fly slowly.
Even after flying for a very long time, he had traveled no more than a few tens of billions of kilometers, and he was still very close to the Ancient Demon. But he had no choice; who was the one who made this Ancient Demon so huge.
Suddenly, a bubble appeared in mid-air.
It was translucent, and as soon as it appeared, it coincidentally wrapped around Xue Ying, who was currently flying. Despite his flying through the Mirage, Xue Ying was wrapped by this bubble with a diameter of 5,000 kilometers just the same.
‘Not good!’ Xue Ying’s expression changed.
The bubble popped.
And Xue Ying, who was originally trapped in the bubble, also disappeared alongside the popped bubble. Xue Ying’s body, as well as the black armor shielding his body, had completely shattered apart. In his terror, he had already disappeared from this location in mid-air.
Half an hour or so later.
A rainbow flame arrived in the same region. Once here, the flame stopped to reveal Protector Huo Zhe inside it.
Protector Huo Zhe’s figure was strong, and his eyes burned in a vague flame. He was staring at the huge Ancient Demon in the distance and, with a wave of his hand, his three comrades also appeared by his side.
“Ancient Demon?” His three comrades were just as startled.
They had lived for a long time in the Lower Three Edens of the Six Heavenly Wheel, and were naturally aware of the most terrifying existences here—the Ancient Demons. Every single one had the combat power of a ruler.
“Who would have thought that there would be an Ancient Demon here. Things have become a little inconvenient.” The gray-robed female protector transmitted a message from the side, “Dong Bo Xue Ying is hiding here somewhere. Are we supposed to deal with him in such a place? As soon as we begin fighting, it might very well end up waking up the Ancient Demon. That’d be very troublesome.”
Everyone present agreed on this point.
The moment an Ancient Demon awoke, it would attack any and all lifeforms in its proximity!
“Let’s follow Dong Bo Xue Ying. It won’t be too late to kill him after we leave this region.” Protector Huo Zhu frowned as he pointed to the void afar. “The Religious Leader sent over a message stating that Dong Bo Xue Ying is right here, but ever after thoroughly searching for him, I just can’t seem to find him. There seems to be no existence other than the Ancient Demon here.”
“Mn.” The three comrades were also thoroughly inspecting the place.
They were all protector rank existences and should be able to easily scour an area of half a hundred billion kilometers. Since their specialties differed, their methods for inspecting the surroundings also varied.
However, all of them arrived at the same conclusion—Xue Ying was not here!
“He isn’t here.”
“Not here either.”
“I too have checked the surrounding half a hundred billion kilometers, and I can’t find either,” the three comrades said one after another.
“Big Brother Huo Zhu, are you certain he is here?” the blue-eyed man asked.
“I’ll ask again.” Protector Huo Zhu might have a deep trust in the Religious Leader, but he still found it prudent to ask.
“According to karma, he should be roughly half a hundred billion kilometers ahead of here. His position has not changed.” Protector Huo Zhu frowned. “Even if he is trying to hide, I don’t think he’d go next to the Ancient Demon. I think he’s likely fallen into some sort of dangerous spot here, in the Blood Devil Eden.”
They were all very experienced, and naturally aware that the dangers of the Six Heavenly Wheel descended very suddenly and without following any rules.
“We’ll retreat for a moment and carefully observe the surroundings.” Protector Huo Zhu made his decision. The four immediately took some distance, trying their best to get as far away as possible from the sleeping Ancient Demon.
Xue Ying’s body had instantly shattered, but he had been teleported through space at the same time.
The moment his body shattered, his True Deity Heart had also shattered.
However, an instant later, his body completely recovered, which was followed by a full recovery of his Deity Heart. Only after this series of events did Xue Ying dare inspect the surrounding scene.
He found himself in a huge, deep gouge in the earth.
The entire gap was filled with blood-colored liquid, and he was, in fact, completely immersed in it, his legs and arms restricted by it.
‘This… what’s going on?’ Xue Ying was in a slight daze.
Under normal circumstances, the shattering of his body and deity heart would only mean one conclusion—death.
However, he had actually recovered completely, and there actually seemed to be no trace of injury on his body.
Furthermore, his hands and legs were being shackled here?
‘The Ancestor Devil.’ Xue Ying could think of no other explanation. The Lake Heart Island Master might have been a rather benevolent figure, but the Ancestor Devil was the very creator of the Dark Abyss, a place which groomed countless of lives through the guidance of dark destruction.
“My body and True Deity Heart did not truly shatter just now. I just had the feeling that they shattered because of the unique phenomenon of void teleportation,” Xue Ying silently mumbled. “According to the intelligence reports I’ve received, Elder Disciple Brother Monarch Green could also cause people to shatter and disappear instantly, so that the moment when the bubble burst is bound to be a similar sort of void teleportation technique. But according to logic, this teleportation method should not cause me such intense pain. Even now I’m feeling the same powerful pain.
“Actually, isn’t this pain rapidly increasing?
“The void teleportation is already done, so why would the pain increase?
“Is it because of this liquid?”
Xue Ying looked around him.
He was trapped in this deep gouge, and the blood-colored liquid filling this place was actually able to penetrate his Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body armor! Just like the flow of water could travel through sieves, the insides of the Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body was also filled with countless holes which were easily bypassed by the blood-colored liquid. It was corroding the skin, his muscles and bones, and the process brought about an intense pain which was only slightly bearable.
Furthermore, as the blood-colored liquid gradually corroded at his person, the pain was only growing more intense.
‘I have to leave this place,’ Xue Ying thought. His body began turning illusory as it entered the Mirage and he tried to escape.
“Dang dang dang~”
However, the very moment he began flying, his legs and hands which were shackled were pulled taut, letting out shackling sounds.
‘What?!’ Xue Ying was stunned. He took another look at the shackles locking down his hands and feet. ‘These shackles followed me into the Mirage?’
With a thought, Xue Ying tried breaking his own hands and feet in an attempt to escape the shackles.
“Weng weng weng.” The four shackles which restricted his hands and feet formed vague patterns, and an unseen force began enveloping Xue Ying’s entire body through these bindings. This force served to prevent him from breaking his hands and feet.
‘That’s right… if the Ancestor Devil truly wishes to trap someone, how could I, with what little combat power I have, escape from his contraption? What reason could he have for trapping me here, though?’ Xue Ying felt the blood-colored liquid filling the deep gouge as it continued invading his body, and the pain was gradually rising, yet he kept his cool. ‘Paragon Huo Cheng was trapped inside the Destruction Eden because he angered the Lake Heart Island, but I did nothing of the sort after I arrived at this Blood Devil Eden, so why would I be trapped here?’
The gouge was no more than 33 meters deep, and the blood-colored liquid filling it was an unknown substance. Be it the Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body armor, the Luminous Sun Force or the World Deity energy, they would all be easily penetrated by this blood-colored liquid.
‘How can I leave this place?’
Xue Ying kept looking ahead, carefully looking for any opportunity that might present itself.
