Chapter 731: Cosmos Passage
As his teacher, the ‘Bloodshed God-Emperor’, pursued after those Religious Leaders, Xue Ying heaved a sigh of relief. The drizzles of ripple pouring out from the Black Gourd stopped too. He then plugged the cork back on it and keep the gourd.
‘Such a close shave. A group of Religious Leaders came after me this time. It’s fortunate that I’ve just cultivated the “Walker’s Hidden Secret”, or I would have died in a single move.’ Xue Ying stared at his chest. His injury was already healing. As for the Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body armor, he simply shook his head. ‘The Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body armor is becoming less and less useful. After all, what I received back then was merely the soldier-ranked technique.’
With his combat power, he might be able to obtain the captain-ranked technique if he decided to return to the Destruction Eden again.
But Xue Ying no longer cared! After cultivating the “Walker’s Hidden Secret”, his body was even stronger than the Myriad Devil True Body. The toughness of his skin was not inferior to the Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body armor! Xue Ying believed that after cultivating the “Walker’s Hidden Secret” to the fifth, sixth or even higher levels, the Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body armor would be entirely useless.
His body had become slightly attuned to the void, and it gave off the feeling of translucence.
Xue Ying nodded inwardly. This was a survival technique which the Voidwalker lineage had. By cultivating it to a deeper level, the enemies would be unable to strike him, as they would only feel their weapons piercing the void and not Xue Ying’s body.
It’s a pity that the first level was still too weak. If he had only relied on the Voidwalker lineage when going up against the five Religious Leaders, he would definitely have died. Fortunately, he reached the peak in the ‘Dao of Mirage’. Within the Mirage World, the enemy’s attacks would become much weaker, even if they could permeate into the Mirage. By the time the attacks landed on his body, their impact had already diminished greatly. This was the brilliance in utilizing the ‘Laws and Profound Mysteries’.
Even ‘Gu Qi’ had said that this system of comprehending the Laws and Profound Mysteries could allow the user to become extremely powerful in the later stages!
Suddenly, a frightening ripple faintly spread over from afar.
Xue Ying turned over abruptly: ‘Is teacher fighting against those Religious Leaders?’
He held onto the Black Gourd as he rushing over stealthily. He did not dare to travel too quickly. Instead, he gradually inched closer. It was impossible for him to intervene in a battle of this level! The reason why he dared to get close was due to his survival capabilities and the Black Gourd, and it might even be possible for him to provide assistance.
Unseen ripples swept out in all directions.
Many desolate planets trembled before being crushed into nothingness. There was even a planet which contained many mortals and Transcendents living on it, and the strongest beings were merely Demigod Transcendents. The planets contained squeaking little children, old men enjoying their later years, young men who were filled with fighting spirit, and couples who were in love with each other. There were also cultivators who adventured all around the world…
They did not know that a huge calamity had arrived.
‘Weng.’ A strand of aftershocks swept over from the exchange between Bloodshed God-Emperor and the five Religious Leaders. Despite traveling over a large distance, the aftershocks could still instantly eradicate stage two World Deities, much less the countless lives on this planet.
Xue Ying suddenly appeared in the starry sky by the planet. His eyes turned towards that unseen aftershock. ‘Hong~’ Using his willpower, he warped the starry sky and easily dissipated the incoming shockwave. After all, it was a mere aftershock that had spread far and wide. As he was now, Xue Ying could barely wrestle against Rulers. He had even survived the assassination attempt from the five Religious Leaders.
‘The exchange has created a huge disturbance.’ Xue Ying thought.
‘Xue Ying, come over.’ A voice sounded.
Xue Ying teleported and rushed over. He was already very close to the battlefield.
The entire void was filled with particle streams. And now, these particle streams were gradually becoming gentler. The starry sky was also regaining its usual appearance. The only difference was that the surroundings no longer contained any impurities, dust or planets. The Bloodshed God-Emperor stood there, garbed in a crimson gown. The air of slaughter he emitted enshrouded the entire void, causing the void to be faintly covered in a blood-colored layer.
Only after seeing Xue Ying being wary of the murderous atmosphere did the Bloodshed God Emperor reacted, retracting his aura.
‘Teacher’s aura is truly frightening.’ Xue Ying muttered inwardly. This was the first time experiencing his teacher’s frightening, murderous aura firsthand.
“Not bad. Even after those five Religious Leaders ganged up on you, you are able to survive their attacks.” Bloodshed God Emperor chuckled with amazement.
“My combat strength is quite weak–I had to depend on the Black Gourd. However, I am more confident in my ability to survive.” Xue Ying said, “It’s possible that they have underestimated my abilities.”
Bloodshed God-Emperor nodded, “Right. Keep your methods of survival a secret. The fewer people know about it, the better! Only then could you survive, even under such dire predicaments. The moment it is made public, the enemy could set a trap that directly counters your strengths! Even Bamboo Mountain has become a traitor. Now, I would not even trust any of our own people.”
Xue Ying nodded in agreement.
The betrayal of the Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master had impacted the cultivators greatly.
A figure appeared by the side. It was the black-robed, black-haired cold male, ‘Temporal Island Lord’. The Temporal Island Lord looked around him. The surrounding scene of the starry sky immediately turned illusory. Scenes from the earlier battle flashed across rapidly, and the Temporal Island Lord stared at the Bloodshed God Emperor: “Bloodshed, the Religious Leaders came to assassinate your disciple? Why did you not tell me since it occurred in my territory?”
“They dared to carry out the assassination in your territory. Naturally, they must have prepared well to counter your specialties.” Bloodshed God Emperor mentioned, “And if they had something prepared to deal with you, you might not have been able to save Xue Ying if you had acted alone against the Ancestor Mother Religion.”
Temporal Island Lord frowned slightly. He did not respond.
He understood that despite his strength in the Dao of Time-Space, but his weaknesses in other aspects were very clear and apparent.
“You sure have quite a few hidden techniques.” Temporal Island Lord turned towards Xue Ying, “For you to survive the assassination attempt by the five Religious Leaders.”
“I am slightly capable in survivability.” Xue Ying laughed.
“Hahaha… since you could survive the assassination attempt by the five Religious Leaders, it seems no one in our cosmos can triumph against you in a one-on-one battle.” Bloodshed God Emperor chuckled.
The Temporal Island Lord turned towards the Bloodshed God Emperor.
Others might not be able to do so, but he believed that the current Bloodshed God Emperor could do so.
He had fought with the Bloodshed God Emperor for so many years, and he was clear that their gap was immense. Furthermore, the Bloodshed God-Emperor had even created the ‘Void Twin Extreme Array’, achieving an even higher realm. It could be said that he was already half a step through the realm. In the past, the Temporal Island Lord could barely fight against the Bloodshed God-Emperor by relying on his ‘Dao of Time-Space’. But now that the other party had reached a higher realm, the Temporal Island Lord was no longer inclined towards pitting himself against the Bloodshed God Emperor. Not just him, even Primal Master and Abyss Primogenitor no longer had the heart to compete with him. They all believed that it was impossible for them to catch up with the Bloodshed God Emperor.
“Mn?” Temporal Island Lord frowned as he looked afar.
“What happened?” Bloodshed God Emperor asked.
“You might be outstanding in other aspects, but when comparing the attainments in time-space, I am the best.” Temporal Island Lord coldly commented. He took a step before arriving in another area. Bloodshed God Emperor and Xue Ying rushed over too.
Temporal Island Lord looked at this piece of starry sky. He frowned before waving his hand–
The starry sky in front was torn apart. Immediately after, with a ‘bang’, the space became fractured and a pitch black circular hole was revealed. This circular hole was about 100 meters in diameter and led to an unknown place. There was even some grayish fog rolling around it.
“Cosmos passage?” Bloodshed God Emperor was startled.
“After that battle, the surrounding space should have remained empty and peaceful. But I had a feeling that something was amiss. Indeed, that’s the case. There is a cosmos passage here.” Temporal Island Lord coldly chuckled.
