Chapter 687: Kill
“Where is this Ancient Shrine?” Xue Ying asked.
“You do not know?” Fei Huo Palace Master sneered.
“I do not know.” Xue Ying nodded.
Fei Huo Palace Master frowned.
He was such a powerful stage four World Deity; this was unprecedented in history. That was why they had guessed that it must be something related to the mysterious ‘Ancient Shrine’.
“Then why is your combat power so much greater than powerful existences?” Fei Huo Palace Master yelled out with a frown.
“Because I cultivated.” Xue Ying coolly answered.
A sneer appeared on the edge of Fei Huo Palace Master’s lips: “Guest Elder Flying Snow, you do know that it has been a long time since there is someone who dares to be so insolent in front of me other than the other four Paragons.”
“Insolent? Am I?” Xue Ying questioned.
“Not respecting me means you are insolent.” Fei Huo Palace Master sneered.
Chong-Shi Forefather, the three elders, and Seventh Highness Chong Yan were feeling nervous by the side. If it were them, they would never be able to converse so casually with ‘Fei Huo Palace Master’. After all, he was the Fei Huo Palace Master, and also one of the five apex existences in this world! He had the qualifications to disdain upon countless lives! Ordinary powerful existences did not dare to be disrespectful when facing these five beings.
“Not being respectful means insolence?” Xue Ying chuckled, “Quite interesting. Then respectable Fei Huo Palace Master, if you have no other matters, please leave. I still wish to continue guiding my disciple and will not accompany you any further.”
“Guide your disciple? Survive first before speaking!” Fei Huo Palace Master roared in a fury.
Since he could not find out the other party’s secrets with words, he would fight!
He could always understand what was the background of the other party by fighting with him!
Fei Huo Palace Master suddenly sent a punch out.
A terrifying flame of light charged over. Everywhere it passed would be burnt to ashes. The surrounding space even had many black cracks forming. This was a flame that was formed after opening the Dao; it was immeasurably tyrannical. This single scene made the Chong-Shi Forefather, Chong Yan and the others feel a chill down their heart.
“Hmph.” Xue Ying sent out his fist. His fist was covered in a layer of black armor. When he punched out, it caused space to collapse. This fist was moving at speed beyond Fei Huo Palace Master’s as it directly clashed against the other party’s fist.
Fist against fist.
The entire figure of Fei Huo Palace Master was blasted back. Alarm filled his face as he spurted out blood.
Xue Ying then coldly mentioned, “You are within the clan’s arrays, so don’t leave.”
Xue Ying shot out towards the Fei Huo Palace Master.
“This, this, this…” Chong-Shi Forefather fell in a daze. The other three powerful existence elders were also in a trance. As for Seventh Highness Chong Yan, he was entirely stunned.
Fei Huo Palace Master was someone who stood at the peak of this world, yet he had been blasted away with a single fist! The status of Fei Huo Palace Master in this world was comparable to the Rulers in Deity world and Abyss. A situation when some random ordinary powerful existence appeared that blasted a Ruler away with a single fist would similarly shock countless cultivators.
Fei Huo Palace Master felt that terrifying strength engulfing his entire body. His fist was utterly shattered–the bones were also fractured. Blood spurt out from his whole body as he trembled and flew back for a few ten thousand kilometers.
‘How could this be?’ Fei Huo Palace Master did not dare believe, ‘I am a Paragon! I am a Paragon and have cultivated absolute arts, yet why would I be blasted by a single punch from a stage four World Deity?’
Xue Ying appeared in the space on the other side. He shook his head inwardly while standing in the air, ‘I exerted too much strength, thinking that the Paragons in this world can’t be underestimated because they have cultivated in an appropriate absolute art. As a result, I’ve used 50% of my strength all of a sudden! It is too overwhelming. Even though this world has absolute arts that could provide them with a spurt of strength and speed, it is far beyond to the “Myriad Devil True Body”.’
It wasn’t just this world. There was truly no absolute arts even in the Deity world and Abyss that were on the same level as the “Myriad Devil True Body”. Ancestor Devil had relied on it to render Lake Heart Island master helpless against him. He had even utilized his art to refine the Ancient Demon.
Cultivating all six grand inheritances, with the ‘Blood Demon Scripture’ being one of them, it would allow one to reach large success in the foundation of “Myriad Devil True Body”.
Xue Ying had suffered so much to reach the second level in his cultivation heart. Only then could he succeed in cultivating the initial scroll. One could see how frightening this absolute art was. It was the strongest absolute art in the history of Deity world, and Abyss meant to cultivate one’s body.
Even if he used 50% of his strength, it was enough to suppress this Fei Huo Palace Master completely.
‘Just having strength and speed is useless; instead, usage of the realm is more important.’ Fei Huo Palace Master was slightly angry and mad. The injuries on his body were rapidly recovering. At the same time, he extended both his hands, causing numerous flames to form. It had generated an enormous array in midair and went engulfing towards Xue Ying.
“Hmph.” Xue Ying took out his sword.
This opponent in front of him was not worth him using his spear.
Using the sword sufficed.
A blood sword stream that was like silk appeared. It directly cut across the incoming red flames before proceeding on to Fei Huo Palace Master. This sword was so swift that it gave Fei Huo Palace Master the feeling that he could not evade: ‘What is happening? I am a Paragon, yet why am I unable to evade his sword technique? I am unable to see through the profound mysteries in his sword technique?’
He felt slightly flustered. A black wooden rod soon appeared in his hand as Fei Huo Palace Master used it to parry against the incoming sword stream.
“Hong.” Even though he parried against it, the Dao of Slaughter in that sword stream which was like silk blasted Fei Huo Palace Master once again, causing him to fly behind while spurting another mouth of blood.
‘Sever Sword.’ Xue Ying chuckled. He was truly pleased with the power of this Sever Sword.
Fei Huo Palace Master regained his control in midair. He could not believe what just happened, nor could he accept it: ‘My strength and speed are weaker than the other party. I can’t even break through the mysteriousness of his sword technique.’
Xue Ying did not stop. Another sword descended once again. It was rare for him to fight a Paragon. It was coincidentally the right time to verify his understanding of the “Six Sever Sword Styles”. He had even deliberately reduced his strength this time to prevent the other party from flying back.
One could see many sword streams that were like blood silk being shot out. These swords left behind vestiges in the sky, and their prowess was great. Fei Huo Palace Master had barely parried against two swords, yet the third had raced through his body, cutting him into two…
‘Flee!’ Fei Huo Palace Master’s two body parts were rapidly re-connecting. At the same time, he no longer had any fighting spirit. He understood that he was not the opponent of this Guest Elder Flying Snow.
Xue Ying saw that the other party was trying to escape, and decided to no longer train his sword techniques. He was too lazy to waste any time, and had brought the strength in his sword back to 50% of his full strength, greatly increasing the speed and strength of the sword techniques to another level. If comparing flying speed, Xue Ying’s speed was beyond the other party. Under the whistle of the sword, the fleeing Fei Huo Palace Master was cut into pieces like beancurd. Closely following that, he was exterminated by the power of the sword technique.
Fei Huo Palace Master died in combat!
One of the five Paragons who stood at the peak of this world, Fei Huo Palace Master, had been killed by ‘Guest Elder Flying Snow’! Naturally, it was an avatar who died.
Xue Ying waved his hand before collecting the treasures left behind.
Xue Ying turned into a stream of light as he returned into the Chong-Shi Clan.
Within the courtyard, Chong-Shi Forefather and the other four were looking at Xue Ying with enthusiasm and disbelief! Seventh Highness Chong Yan was merely proud for he had such a formidable teacher. As for Chong-Shi Forefather and the rest, they realized that the power of this Guest Elder Flying Snow had reached the extent that he could start a new Holy Ground by himself!
The power hierarchy of this world would be changing soon.
And this Guest Elder Flying Snow did not have any powerful experts under him. His Chong-Shi Clan might become the new core of Holy Ground.
“Chong-Shi Patriarch.” Xue Ying looked towards him, “Do you know what the Ancient Shrine is?”
“Of course, of course, that is an ancient legend.” Chong-Shi Forefather was extremely obedient. Whatever he asked would be answered swiftly by him.
At the same time, news of Fei Huo Palace Master’s death in battle was spread across the entire Sky Fire Palace. The other two Holy Grounds, the ‘Spectre Prefecture’ and ‘Xu Empire’ were both aware of it too.
All of them were exceptionally stunned, especially after Fei Huo Palace Master’s true body reiterated what just happened, causing them to disbelieve it even more.
“I am completely suppressed. Even in the realm, I do not hold any advantages at all. The gap between our strength and speed is even bigger. Because my speed was slow, I could not even escape from him.” Fei Huo Palace Master had utterly lost his confidence after this battle. He knew the gap between him and the other party was too enormous.
