Chapter 726: The Inheritance of the Voidwalker
After teleporting Xue Ying and the others out, the Primal Chaos Flying Ship remained sealed entirely. Not just the Rulers, even the Religious Leaders could not see what was happening within.
The Rulers, Xue Ying and the rest were waiting in the starry sky outside.
“Dong Bo.” Paragon Huo Cheng transmitted his voice over as he stared at the ship by the side, “Do you think that Gu Qian Luo might be scheming something behind our back? Previously, he said that he will swear an oath and properly defend that aide of his. Now, he forced us out, leaving only Mysterious North Imperial Empress within. Will he suddenly employ some underhanded and treacherous methods against her?”
“Hard to say.” Xue Ying did not have any confidence.
Judging from his aura, Gu Qian Luo was a cold and wicked existence that killed many beings. Furthermore, the other party had an extraordinary background. It was typical for him to be able to employ in some treacherous and unpredictable method which they did not know of.
Bloodshed God-Emperor and the others were waiting silently.
After half an hour.
Only then did Mysterious North Imperial Empress float out of the flying ship. The ten Rulers and Paragons went over to greet her.
‘It seems that this Mysterious North Imperial Empress’ aura has become much stronger.’ Xue Ying could faintly discern that her physique was somewhat stronger.
“Fellow Rulers.” Mysterious North Imperial Empress greeted politely.
“Did that Gu Qian Luo keep his promise?” Bloodshed God-Emperor asked.
Mysterious North Imperial Empress nodded.
“Don’t move for now. Let me inspect your soul.” Bloodshed God-Emperor extended his hand. Mysterious North Imperial Empress gave the nod. She might not have felt herself being affected during the process, but she was worried that it might be a technique which her current realm could not perceive. Bloodshed God-Emperor was the strongest expert in this cosmos, and with his unfathomable power, it should not be easy to scheme something outside his notice.
Gu Qian Luo had a dominant background. Bloodshed God-Emperor similarly had his miraculous encounters.
Bloodshed God-Emperor placed his palm on her shoulder. Unseen energy permeated through her body. Mysterious North Imperial Empress did not obstruct it. This energy directly entered the consciousness of the Mysterious North Imperial Empress, inspecting her true deity heart.
After a few moments, Bloodshed God-Emperor finally let his hand off. The other Rulers were looking at him. The Paragons including Mysterious North Imperial Empress herself were also staring at Bloodshed God-Emperor. He chuckled, “That Gu Qian Luo has left something behind on Mysterious North’s deity heart, but it is meant to protect her.”
Everyone let out a sigh of relief.
“Your Majesty, regarding the Primal Chaos Flying Ship…” Mysterious North Imperial Empress was about to mention it to him.
“Wait a moment. We will continue speaking in detail after reaching my god palace.” Bloodshed God-Emperor directly cut her off, “Furthermore, we have to properly go through what you discussed with Gu Qian Luo.”
Following that, the Rulers began investigating the treasures left behind by the Ancestor Mother Religion protectors. But after a short while, they took away that terrifying weapon, leaving behind the rest for Xue Ying and the other Paragons to split! That terrifying weapon required a Ruler to transmit his energy could energy be stored within. Only then could it be utilized once. When it was placed in the hand of a Ruler, it could be used at any time. In the hands of Paragons, it could only be employed once.
As for the other treasures, they were ordinary. This time, even though the Ancestor Mother Religion had decided to stake all in one throw, they were not too willing to leave too many treasures for the Cultivator if they lost. Thus, most of what they brought was ordinary.
Soon after that, everyone went back to their own places.
The Rulers had brought Mysterious North Imperial Empress away.
Black Fog Sea, Monarch Residence, inside the courtyard.
There was a thick layer of accumulated snow piled. After all, the battle at the Primal Chaos Flying Ship had persisted for two days, and the thick snow had yet to melt within the Monarch Residence.
On top of the table, there was wine being boiled. Xue Ying sat opposite Jing Qiu. They were currently chatting to each other idly–mainly about the incident of what just happened.
“So there is such a huge matter which happened the past two short days.” Jing Qiu poured wine for Xue Ying. She sighed, “I, Yu’er and Qing Yao felt that the days of cultivation are quite normal as per usual. But we do not know that a calamity is happening in the dark. If you all have lost this time, the Ancestor Mother Religion might defeat us Cultivators with the help of the Primal Chaos Flying Ship. They will exterminate countless of lifeforms in our cosmos, and the weak ones like us could hardly survive.”
“Jing Qiu, I’ll never let such a thing happen. “Xue Ying looked at his wife.
Jing Qiu giggled slightly. She felt sweet in her heart.
She had always felt that reincarnating was the wisest decision she ever made.
“Since this is a war that involved two cosmos, the level of battle is too high. I can only help pour wine for you here.” Jing Qiu said.
“Hahaha… I have contributed greatly this time. The battle from now will depend on the Rulers. I am not qualified to participate.” Xue Ying shook his head. The Black Gourd power might be enormous, but it was mainly used for ‘protecting’ him. It gave him the ability to survive in front of powerful Rulers. As for killing Rulers? There was no hope of doing so. The Rulers had a deeper realm compared to him.
The Ancestor Mother Religion would similarly have a qualitative change in power the moment they broke through to the Religious Leader realm! They could fight with the Rulers from the Cultivators side.
“A war between Rulers will be up to Teacher and the rest.” Xue Ying said, “We have even gotten the help of the Primal Chaos Flying Ship for this war. Thus, we should have a 99% chance of winning the war!”
Even though that was what he said, Xue Ying still felt his heart tightening slightly! The Ancestor Mother Religion would definitely not give up so quickly. They would struggle on fervently. What if the worst case scenario happened and they lost? Countless lives would be exterminated. That was a scene Xue Ying could not help but feel chill about.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying, since you have refined the Black Gourd, it is time for you to receive the inheritance of the Voidwalker.” The treasure spirit transmitted.
“The inheritance of the Voidwalker?” Xue Ying’s eyes brightened. He then turned towards his wife who accompanied him in drinking, “I am not in a rush. I’ll first accompany my wife for a while before leaving.”
Within the vast palace hall of the Ancestor Mother Religion.
The crowd of Religious Leaders was seated here cross-legged. Their auras were all majestic and grand, yet the current atmosphere was tense.
“After undergoing a discussion, Gu Qian Luo has promised to help the cultivators.” Bloody Ruler Nile’s incarnation said.
“He actually promised!”
The Religious Leaders felt like they were experiencing a suffocating calamity. Even though each and every one of them was strong and powerful, this feeling they were experiencing was stifling. It was a furor that became more intense the closer they were to their deaths. Naturally, since they could reach their current realm, they would not be willing to just die like this. They would rather have a savage battle and struggle. Who knew if a miracle could happen?
“It’s all because of that Dong Bo Xue Ying, burying all prospects of victory when it was so close to us. Otherwise, the Primal Chaos Flying Ship might already be ours.”
“It’s all because of him.”
“Many protectors have died under his hands.”
They had emotions. Having lived for an extended period together with those protectors, their relationship was deep. Some even treated the protectors as their family members. For such an event to happen–a large-scale slaughter–the hatred for Xue Ying had long seeped into their bones! Furthermore, they might very well lose the final decisive battle in this war. That meant extinction for their entire race. It caused them to become more frustrated.
“Before the final decisive battle begins, we must kill this Dong Bo Xue Ying to vent our anger. Otherwise, I’ll not be at peace!” A muscular man with dark yellow skin growled.
“Kill him.” A cold black-armored girl agreed. Her only disciple had been killed by Xue Ying with his Black Gourd.
The fanged Religious Leader looked at the others and nodded: “Even though his strange Black Gourd might be crude, its power is great. Even Rulers do not dare to resist it head-on. Its threat in the hands of Dong Bo Xue Ying is ordinary. But the moment it lands in our hands, we could definitely maximize its usage during the war. That will depend on an opportune moment. We shall wait for him to leave the territory of the Bloodshed God Palace before assassinating him and taking the Black Gourd.”
“Mn.” Everyone present nodded. They did not dare to act within the Bloodshed God Palace territory since Bloodshed God-Emperor could arrive instantaneously within it.
“Investigate his position.” The fanged Religious Leader ordered.
Very soon, an answer came–
“Dong Bo Xue Ying’s true body remains in the material realm. However, his avatar has disappeared. His karma is untraceable.” The news came back.
“What! His karma disappeared once again?” The fanged Religious Leader and the rest were startled.
They did not know that Xue Ying had entered the inheritance ground of the Voidwalker!
