Chapter 695: Three Years
Translator: Radiant Translations Editor: Radiant Translations
Xue Ying was most worried that the others would affect and impede his cultivation, preventing him from controlling the Black Gourd in five years. He would be expelled from this world if that’s the case; he would regret if that happened.
Fortunately, the three Paragons in front of him–Paragon Emperor Xu, Golden Fire Palace Master and Spectre Prefecture Master did not know of this. They felt what Xue Ying said was logical.
“We do not have any hope at all. He could enter a world he created like the Shadow World. By then, all our attacks could not touch him. Even if we do our best, we could only harass him and not kill him.” Golden Fire Palace Master transmitted, “And his frontal combat skill is stronger than Emperor Xu and me. We can’t win even if it is a direct battle.”
“He can’t kill us, and we can’t kill him.” Spectre Prefecture Master frowned.
“But both Emperor Xu and I will be in danger if we split up.” Golden Fire Palace Master added.
Paragon Emperor Xu was silent.
He did not want to admit. Neither could he accept the treasure within the Ancient Shrine being taken away by this World Deity Flying Snow in front of him. But he understood that he had no way of dealing with this ‘World Deity Flying Snow’! The five of them had no hopes of snatching the Black Gourd back even when attacking together.
“Hmph hmph, I have no interest in conquering this world. If I were, I would have constructed a new Holy Ground a long time ago.” Xue Ying casually said. Following which, a look of expectation appeared: “After a while, I’ll leave this world into the bigger outer cosmos. That is what I am looking forward to.”
The three Paragons felt their hearts easing after hearing that.
He would be leaving soon?
That’s good too!
Besides, this World Deity Flying Snow was very secretive. With how powerful he was, he had been willing to be a small guest elder in the Chong-Shi World Clan and had never constructed a Holy Ground. It was clear he had no great ambitions.
The three Paragons were discussing among each other. Even Fei Huo Palace Master and Paragon Sword Emperor who had both lost an avatar each was conversing via karma. Eventually, they made their decisions. Since there was hope, it would be pointless to fight with this World Deity Flying Snow to the death.
“World Deity Flying Snow’s power is greater than what we expected. There is indeed no point for us to proceed with this battle.” Paragon Emperor Xu said with a clear voice, “But I wonder when will Guest Elder Flying Snow leave?”
“If things are settled quickly, then several years. Otherwise, at most 10,000 years.” Xue Ying answered, “I’ve accepted a disciple previously. I would want to teach him seriously more before leaving this world.”
The three Paragons were satisfied.
It would be 10,000 years at most–a short moment to them.
“World Deity Flying Snow.” Golden Fire Palace Master chuckled, “I feel like asking you a question. Previously we’ve heard of the news about how you used the sword as your main weapon. Why are you using a spear now?” The other two Paragons were looking at Xue Ying too. That’s right. He had always been using sword technique, and its power was extraordinary. This time, he used a black spear, and his power had become even more tyrannical.
“I have always specialized in the spear.” Xue Ying grinned.
“Then previously?” Golden Fire Palace Master felt perplexed.
“For the sake of comprehending the “Six Sever Sword Styles”.” Xue Ying answered. Naturally, this wasn’t the truth. Previously when Xue Ying came, he was worried that the apex Paragons could see what happened in the outer cosmos and find out about who ‘Xue Ying’ was. To prevent his identity from leaking, he decided to change his appearance and use a different weapon. In the end, when he got the Black Gourd and understood what had happened, he knew that the Paragons here could not scout what happened in the outside cosmos. Naturally, he would not be worried any longer.
“The Six Sever Sword Styles?” The three Paragons lightly nodded. It’s just that they did not understand why he would use sword still if he were comprehending an absolute art using it?
Xue Ying chuckled. At the same time, his appearances changed.
“This…” The three were startled.
“This is my true appearance.” Xue Ying laughed, “Previously when I entered the Chong-Shi World Clan, I am worried that someone has seen me before. That’s why I changed my appearance.”
“So that’s the reason. World Deity Flying Snow is too polite to that Chong-Shi World Clan. As long as World Deity Flying Snow displays your power, why would they not offer the absolute art with respect?” Paragon Emperor Xu stated.
“The process is more important.” Xue Ying smiled, “Fellow gentlemen, if there are no other matters, then I’ll leave first.” He then teleported and disappeared.
The three Paragons looked at each other.
They felt pressure when facing this World Deity Flying Snow! He had never used that mysterious ‘Black Gourd’ at all when fighting them.
“I hope he will leave in 10,000 years.” Spectre Prefecture Master prayed.
“We should stay together for the next 10,000 years. Otherwise, he might pick on us one by one.” Paragon Emperor Xu suggested.
The three of them were willing to accept this outcome, though they were not feeling good. They came together well-prepared, just that a single move by Xue Ying had frightened all of them–his spear technique was so brutal? At that moment, they had no confidence in their original plan. Besides, Xue Ying was not willing to continue fighting, enabling them to take this opportunity in climbing down the donkey.
Deep within the mountainous region, on a mountain peak.
The black-robed Xue Ying appeared here chuckling. He waved his hand, causing many bamboos to fly from the bamboo forest below. They were being cut cleanly in midair, and soon, they weaved together to form a bamboo house.
At the same time, the land deep in the region of more than a billion kilometers was terraformed. A huge array gradually formed, isolating this entire region with the outside world. Whoever dared enter would befall into an illusory realm. With this illusory realm array, he would be alerted whenever those five Paragons enter.
‘They did not know that I still have to comprehend the cultivation technique. I am most worried about being disturbed, so I intimidated them to make them give up.’ Xue Ying felt good. He could convince the other party to give up. Primarily, it was because he displayed an overwhelming strength right from the start. If not for having a teleportation technique, the other five would certainly use more treasures and stake everything since they still had an avatar.
‘This cultivation technique.’
Xue Ying entered the bamboo house. There were a bamboo bed and bamboo tables within the house.
He sat cross-legged, taking out a fruit wine which was fermented. He then gulped a cup ecstatically before placing the black Gourd out onto the bamboo table and resumed his comprehension of the Voidwalker cultivation technique.
Within his consciousness, many golden characters were flashing.
Every single character was forming a mysterious ripple. Xue Ying calmed himself before setting his resolve to succeed this time. The white-robed true body of his located in the distant outer cosmos ‘material realm’ was also doing his best to comprehend this technique.
The overall situation of what was happening in this world changed very quickly. Powerful existences were now looking for sources regarding World Deity Flying Snow’s battle with the five Paragons outside the ‘Xu Empire Capital’. Many saw it–powerful existences included. Thus, they were able to understand everything after making some inquiries.
One single move killed two Paragons! Golden Fire Palace Master and the other Paragons had to compromise in the end?
Even though the majority of them did not know that the ‘Black Gourd’ had fallen in Xue Ying’s hands, that battle scene had shocked almost all superpowers. Powerful existences were even taking the initiative to seek Xue Ying.
The Chong-Shi World Clan was also transmitting a message to Xue Ying.
And to this, Xue Ying’s answer was: “I am not interested in building a Holy Ground. I am currently in closed-door cultivation. Do not disturb me.”
The sun rose and fell.
The wind blew, and the rain came.
Weeds on the peak of the mountain were turning yellow, and soon, they flourished again.
One year, two years, three years had gone by.
Both his avatar in this world and the true body in his hometown Xia Clan world were both in closed-door cultivation. He had even told his wife Jing Qiu not to disturb him if there were no huge matters.
Lightning struck rampantly in the cloudy sky. Heavy rain poured down.
Xue Ying stood in front of the bamboo house by a mountain cliff. He let the rain pour down on him.
‘It has been three years. I have yet to succeed. I’ve comprehended over a few thousand variations, yet all are wrong! Everything is wrong! No matter what I comprehended, they are all wrong!’ Xue Ying looked afar at the thunder striking in the sky. His eyes held some anxiety and tyranny, ‘What exactly is happening? Where have I made a mistake?’
This anxious mood and terrifying willpower resulted in the thunder condensing explosively in the sky. Closely following that, it was destroyed and dispelled.
The cloudy sky completely disappeared. The rain disappeared. A typical sunny day reappeared once again.
Xue Ying stood at the mountain peak looking at the sky. He was emotionless.
