Chapter 673: Accepting Disciples
Translator: Radiant Translations Editor: Radiant Translations
The God Palace Battle of the Myriad Flower Feast soon began.
The consciousness of all 1,900 Deity experts was teleported into a piece of vast territory within the Bloodshed God Palace, commencing the final battle.
High up in the sky above that vast battlefield, there was an enormous blood-colored scroll.
After the blood-colored scroll appeared, names started showing up on it. It was a temporary ranking.
These young Deity experts all wanted to try their best in becoming the ‘top 100’ among the 1,900 of them. As long as they could get the top hundred, they would become a disciple of a powerful existence! Thus, they would either move alone or team up together–all had their own decisions.
The feast was continuing. The stage four World Deities and powerful existences were conversing with each other as they enjoyed the meal and drink. Xue Ying was similarly chatting with Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master and Monarch Destruction. As for Bloodshed God-Emperor, he was currently conversing with the other three Rulers.
Those at the same level of combat power would usually have similar topics to discuss. The Rulers that were exalted would also chat amongst each other. What they spoke did not leak out, so it was clear that nobody could understand what they were saying.
Xue Ying and the other three had similarly isolated all surrounding scouting techniques.
“Dong Bo, come come come, let us have a toast.” Monarch Destruction passionately said.
“Monarch.” Xue Ying immediately took up his cup.
The two toasted to each other before downing the cup of fruit wine within. It was a wine made by the God-Emperor himself. Even though it was not too valuable, it was still quite rare.
“You have cultivated for 10 million years now, and have obtained the initial scroll of “Myriad Demon True Body”. I truly admire you.” Monarch Destruction sighed, “From what I know, to succeed, one has to reach the ‘Heart as Blade’ level in your cultivation heart realm. I feel guilty for saying it but I as a powerful existence, is actually from an ancient generation and even till now, I have yet to reach this stage in my cultivation heart.”
“He is young and has experienced very little. It is instead easier for him to train in his heart.” Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master added from the side.
Xue Ying pondered over it after listening. Indeed, it felt logical.
The younger the expert, the more successful progress he would have. Cultivating will be like a bulldozer destroying everything in front of him! But the moment he fell into oblivion… then it would be tough to regain the original breakneck cultivation speed!
And those who cultivated for a more extended period would experience more things and would have more apprehensions and thoughts. Thus, it would be too complicated to attain the ‘Heart as Blade’ realm.
“I was young once, but aren’t things the same too?” Monarch Destruction laughed.
“It isn’t well for us to compare with each other.” Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master did not continue speaking about it anymore. He then turned towards Xue Ying, “Xue Ying, we should have a toast too.”
“Indeed we should.” Xue Ying raised his cup.
He and Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master were the only two in this cosmos epoch to open their Daos as stage four World Deities.
After drinking it, Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master poured more wine for himself while saying, “The Opening realm and Ruler realm has a huge gap. I stepped into the Opening realm a long time ago, reaching a bottleneck in my cultivation, yet I could not step into the Ruler realm at all. You and I are different though since you opened your Dao in just a million years, and is much faster than I! My sincere wish for you to remain your breakneck speed, charging up to the sky and even surpass me to become a Ruler!”
“The moment you become a Ruler, it will bring hope for me to break through too.” Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master lightly nodded, “I am starting to doubt myself after being stuck at this stage for so long.”
Xue Ying felt the melancholy in Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master’s heart.
Anyone who was stuck for too long without being able to move a single inch forward would also begin to doubt himself. Other Paragons who had already transcended would not feel that huge of a pressure. However, it was too much for Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master since he would undoubtedly die in this cosmos epoch if he did not transcend! Xue Ying’s cultivation time was still relatively short, and he was quite confident still. Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master was, after all, someone who cultivated for more than 500 billion years, and that was quite an extended period compared to the entire cosmos epoch.
“Bamboo Mountain, you are ultimately stuck at the limit bottleneck with just that single step. Taking this single step will allow you to break through anytime.” Xue Ying encouraged.
“That’s right. Compare to my cultivation time, mine is so much longer, yet my realm isn’t comparable to yours. Would I not feel sullen until I die?” Monarch Destruction added too.
Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master laughed.
The three of them were casually chatting. There were even things which Xue Ying did not understand and have to ask the other two. After all, Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master and Monarch Destruction were so much more knowledgeable than he was.
Still, his teacher had given him a large amount of information.
He understood much about the secrets in this cosmos and could talk about it with others.
If it was the usual powerful existences and Paragons, they could not discuss it since they had never heard of such matters.
As the younger Deity experts were fighting, some would die and have their consciousness return to their bodies. Those who were still battling on the battlefield were constantly reducing. Now, there were not more than 30 people on the battlefield. This God Palace Battle was ending soon.
Some powerful existences had even started receiving disciples.
Some powerful existences would directly pass their command token to the imperial guards by the side.
The imperial guards would respectfully receive the command tokens before heading to the outer perimeter. Those who had regained their consciousness would watch with bated breaths as they watched that piece of command token end up in the hands of a young yellow-robed girl. Everyone felt envious and unwilling, before they cast their gazes towards the central main palace, waiting for new command tokens to appear.
Bloodshed God-Emperor who was seated amongst the four Rulers high above had said, “Not one of the three of you are accepting any disciples this Myriad Flower Feast. It is fine for my teacher and Bamboo Mountain since they accepted quite a few in the past. Xue Ying, this is the first time you are seated here, and I will not force you in the future, but you should at least accept three disciples the very first time this time.”
Xue Ying was speechless.
He wanted to say that this was not the first time he was here! The previous time he had been seated outside and participated in the God Palace Battle! This should be the second time!
Naturally, that was just his resentment in his heart. Outside, he replied obediently, “Alright, teacher, I’ll accept three.”
“This brat seems quite unwilling.” Bloodshed God-Emperor chuckled.
Ruler Nile laughed from the side too. “Dong Bo Xue Ying, your cultivation is truly shocking. You can cause the death of two protectors from the Ancestor Mother Religion with just a million years of cultivation, contributing greatly to the cosmos. Naturally, you should guide some disciples well. Let’s not talk about guiding them to reach your level, for them to reach half of your ability… is also increasing the overall force of our Cultivator Cosmos.”
“I would want to see the foresight of Dong Bo Xue Ying.” Pang Yi chuckled too.
Those powerful existences and stage four World Deities were seeing as the Rulers conversed with the three ancestors. It’s a pity that they could not listen to what they were saying.
“Xue Ying, rest assured. We will not snatch anyone from you.” Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master mentioned.
“I’ll not snatch from you too.” Monarch Destruction added.
Xue Ying could only curl his lips. He then turned towards the information being sent from the Bloodshed Tavern–it was the detailed information regarding the 1,900 Deity experts who participated in the God Palace Battle this time! Every single powerful existence had obtained this set of detailed information too. That way, it would aid them in selecting the right disciples.
It was fortunate that despite chatting during the feast, Xue Ying had occasionally turned towards the disturbances happening on the battlefield. With his power, a single glance enabled him to see all 1,900 Deities easily.
‘At least three?’
Xue Ying muttered inwardly, ‘Alright, I’ll select three then.’
Many of the ordinary powerful existences within the Bloodshed God Palace would have to accept disciples every single feast as part of their responsibilities. But reaching the status of the three ancestors, it was no longer an obligation. However, since Bloodshed God-Emperor had personally requested it this time, Xue Ying would naturally not reject his offer.
‘Three of them. Which three should I choose?’
Xue Ying consolidated the detailed information he had seen, and also the occasional glances to the battle previously. With his speed of thinking, he had decided after a few breaths of time.
‘The three of them it is.’ Xue Ying made his final decision.
