Chapter 686: Your Honor
Translator: Radiant Translations Editor: Radiant Translations
The five Paragons who were from the three Holy Grounds-Sky Fire Palace, Xu Empire, and Specter Prefecture, vaguely understood from that incomparably vast and towering figure situated within the River of Time, that this Guest Elder Flying Snow was someone extraordinary! After all, what was shown in the ‘River of Time’ could not be disguised, and everything would appear according to the operating cosmic laws.
Knowing that ‘Guest Elder Flying Snow’ was extraordinary was one thing. Where was he extraordinary? Why exactly was he so unique? What made him so special?
These remained unknown!
Such an occurrence had never been recorded in history before, yet it was no longer the case! Guest Elder Flying Snow was the only stage four World Deity who had that huge of a figure within the River of Time. His waist was one-tenth of the width of the River of Time. Such a diameter was unfathomable.
“Paragon Emperor Xu, you are the most experienced of us. Do you know what makes this Guest Elder Flying Snow so special?”
“I don’t. I have never heard of such things either.”
“Brother Golden Fire, what about you?”
“I am also bitterly pondering over this, yet to no avail. However, the cosmic laws will never be fake.”
The strongest amongst the five Paragons were Paragon Emperor Xu and Golden Fire Palace Master; the other three were comparably weaker. Even though the Specter Prefecture Master had started a Holy Ground all by himself, it was because the Dao he opened was relatively bizarre.
“Fellow gentlemen, for such an unfathomable stage four World Deity to appear unprecedented, is it related to the legendary ‘Ancient Shrine’?”
“Right, it is most likely only the Ancient Shrine will create such mysterious circumstances.”
“But the Ancient Shrine is located in my Xu Empire. I dare say that this Guest Elder Flying Snow has never stepped into the Ancient Shrine before.” Paragon Emperor Xu directly declared. He was the oldest Paragon in this world, and also the strongest amongst them. That time, he had long built his Xu Empire right around the boundary region of this mysterious ‘Ancient Shrine’.
“Fellow gentlemen had been to the Ancient Shrine, so think about it–if that Guest Elder Flying Snow has been there as an ordinary stage four World Deity, he will not have any benefits. I believe fellow gentlemen know how frightening that place is.”
“But other than the Ancient Shrine, I can’t think of any other reasons.”
The five Paragons were discussing amongst each other. They were all feeling bewildered.
“My Sky fire Palace has caused this matter, so I and Fei Huo will take responsibility in investigating the background of this guest elder.” Paragon Golden Fire said.
Chong-Shi World Clan.
At this moment within the Chong-Shi World Clan, the clan disciples, guards, maidservants, guest elders and elders were all looking at Xue Ying differently; their attitude towards him had become much more respectful. They were clear that he was someone who could kill powerful existences like killing chickens. And Seventh Highness ‘Chong Yan’ was even more proud of his teacher for he had been teaching him sword techniques frequently.
Instead, it was those with the highest statuses–Chong-Shi Forefather, Grand Elder and several others who felt worried inwardly. They knew that the ‘Sky Fire Palace’ would not let matters rest!
Year passed by year.
Under the suppression of laws, one could only travel a few ten thousand kilometers every second. Rushing over from the Sky Fire Palace to the Chong-Shi World Clan, with how big this world was, it would take a few years to travel.
Within the courtyard, Xue Ying was seated cross-legged on the plains. A sword was placed on his leg. He was currently cultivating with his eyes closed and would display a few moves with his divine sword time after time.
Not far away, the white-robed teenager ‘Chong Yan’ widened his eyes and observed his teacher: ‘Formidable, truly formidable. At first glance, it seems ordinary. However, the more I experience it, the more unfathomable it becomes.’ Chong Yan felt startled in his heart. He did not know that the current sword technique Xue Ying was casually displaying had been his understanding of the sixth and final style from the “Six-Swords Sever Style”.
Being an existence who opened the Dao of Slaughter, he had finished cultivating the first five styles of the “Six Sever Sword Styles” in just three days. Even though he spent a longer period trying to cultivate the final style, he had completed it within 200 years or so.
That’s because his true body was cultivating within a hundred times time-accelerated environment within the distant material realm in the Crimson Rock Mountain, yet only two years passed in the outer world.
After grasping hold of the “Six Sever Sword Styles”, Xue Ying began researching into how the sixth and final style was created along with how the Dao of Slaughter was added. One had to know that the ‘Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction’ was someone with power very close to Monarch Green’s. He had comprehended the lower half of the Blood Demon Scripture before creating an absolute art that belonged to himself! Learning an absolute that used the Dao that belonged to oneself was one aspect. More importantly, it was how the creator created it.
Creating an absolute art that belonged to oneself would greatly boost one’s combat power!
After all, there were differences in the usage of the same Dao of Slaughter.
As for the sword technique?
It was the most shallow on the outer appearance. Using the sword, using the blade or using the spear were just external appearances. What was core would be the inner law of profound mysteries!
‘Learning an absolute art utilizing the Dao of Slaughter will greatly increase the power of my attacks using the Dao of Slaughter.’ Xue Ying was in great joy, ‘But this isn’t enough. If I can create my absolute art in the future, it might be possible for me to fight against Rulers.’
The Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction had precisely created an absolute art for himself that gave him the power to fight against Rulers.
Many within the Deity world and Abyss wished to follow what Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction did. Xue Ying did think he could undoubtedly achieve it, though he had his strengths. With the Dao of Mirage and Dao of Slaughter used together, even Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction would envy him.
Suddenly, a terrifying aura rushed over from afar.
Xue Ying who was seated in the courtyard turned over. His right hand beckoned to the distant Seventh Highness, causing him to fly directly over to where Xue Ying was. Chong Yan felt puzzled: “Teacher, what’s the matter?”
“Look by the side obediently.” Xue Ying ordered.
“Who?” The Chong-Shi Forefather had angrily shouted out. The clan arrays were activated.
A dazzling stream of flames fell towards the Chong-Shi World Clan with frightening power.
This might made Xue Ying frowned slightly: ‘Paragon?’
That flame was not just the thunder-fire which appeared because of the laws of this world. Instead, it was a terrifying flame that appeared after opening one’s Dao. Even though it could not compare with what ‘Paragon Huo Cheng’ could do, it made Xue Ying feel the threat: ‘It seems that he should have studied some absolute art related to the Dao of Flame. The Paragons of this world could not be underestimated since most of them could learn an absolute art suitable for them.’
This stream of flame directly clashed into the courtyard. It was very overbearing. The unseen power rushed out in all directions.
The entire arrays within the Chong-Shi World Clan were operating. Black waves began surging up violently as it suppressed the incoming flames. After all, this was just some repercussions coming from the aura emitted by a Paragon, and the arrays of the Chong-Shi World Clan could still resist against it.
But half of the entire courtyard had been destroyed.
Behind where Xue Ying stood, the grass remained untouched.
“Sou sou sou sou!”
Following that, four figures rushed over. They were Chong-Shi Forefather and the three powerful existences elders. They saw that it was a red-haired male who was bathed in flame arriving from that stream of fire. He stood with his hands behind his back, and his eyes were carrying endless power. The fire on the surface of his body was filled with grandeur, causing Chong-Shi Forefather and the rest to feel the threat of death.
“Right Palace Head.” Chong-Shi Forefather and the other three elders felt heart tightening. Even though they were prepared, seeing one of the two palace masters from the Sky Fire Palace which stood at the peak of the world, the Right Palace Head’s ‘Fei Huo Palace Master’ standing here made them tremble.
“Sky Fire Palace’s Right Palace Master?” Chong Yan who stood behind Xue Ying felt nervous too. He could not help but take a step towards Xue Ying.
Xue Ying stood there with his sword still behind his back. He looked at that red-haired male who was emitting an oppressive aura and chuckled, “Fei Huo Palace Master?”
Those present at the scene–the patriarch, the three elders and Seventh Highness, could not help but feel admiration for him.
They were feeling nervous when facing Fei Huo Palace Head. Nevertheless, this Guest Elder Flying Snow remained calm as if he was meeting an ordinary enemy.
“Interesting.” Fei Huo Palace Head looked at this black-robed teenager who had a divine sword on his back. He gave off an ordinary stage four World Deity aura, but he had seen the River of Time and knew this guest elder was extraordinary.
“Are you thinking of helping the Chong-Shi World Clan?” Fei Huo Palace Master asked casually.
“Yes.” Xue Ying nodded. His reply was likewise casual.
“Then you are planning to become enemies with my Sky Fire Palace?” Fei Huo Palace Master continued asking.
The hearts of the five other people including the Chong-Shi Forefather were racing. They were genuinely anxious at that moment.
“I do not wish to become enemies with the Sky Fire Palace, but if the Sky Fire Palace do not give up, then let us become enemies.” Xue Ying answered.
“Oh?” Fei Huo Palace Master frowned slightly.
There were almost none who dared remain calm while saying ‘to become enemies with the Sky Fire Palace’.
“You are a World Deity, yet you have such a power. I believe you should have met some phenomenal opportunity.” Fei Huo Palace Head asked.
“Indeed.” Xue Ying did not elaborate.
“Even if you don’t tell me, I know that you have been to the Ancient Shrine.” Fei Huo Palace Head continued. At the same time, he was carefully observing the expression of Xue Ying to confirm his deductions.
Xue Ying felt his heart palpitating after hearing that.
He was a stage four World Deity who could display such heaven-shattering power, and from the reports obtained in the Chong-Shi Clan, such occurrence had never happened in history. Regardless, the other party though he had been to the Ancient Shrine?
‘Ancient Shrine?’ Xue Ying had a vague feeling that this place should be an extraordinary place. It could possibly be related to the destination plotted on that star map which led him here!
