Chapter 739: Protect His Highness
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
‘It has been 30 million years.’ Xue Ying stood on top of a mountain peak overlooking this vast Eden World.
This Eden World did not have any other living beings. This was a deliberate choice by Xue Ying, as the”Walker’s Hidden Secret” had a devastating force, and just the spreading of a slight shockwave would exterminate countless lives. But after cultivating for 30 million years, he had perfected his control over the Primal Chaos Void Energy, ensuring that his use of the Energy would not affect his surroundings at all.
‘My current power should far surpass that of the three Holy Protectors, and beyond that of Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction. During the final battle of my Cultivator Cosmos with the Ancestor Mother Religion, I should not be an impedance anymore.’ Xue Ying thought.
30 million years was too long.
Before coming to the Devil Mountain Cosmos, he had only cultivated for a total of more than 10 million years, yet he had already obtained outstanding achievements.
Now that 30 million years had passed, with his comprehension ability and him pondering over the void array of the Black Gourd, the ‘Dao of Mirage’ had reached an extreme bottleneck. Even his understanding of the Primal Chaos Void reached a profound stage–he had trained the “Walker’s Hidden Secret” to the sixth level! Only after reaching this level did Xue Ying understand why the selection trials for a Voidwalker would be so prudent.
One important requirement would be the temperament of one’s heart, for fear of passing it down to the wrong person! It was truly a heaven-shattering cultivation system, so much more powerful than all 18 cultivation systems, all which had become widely known, in the crystal passed to him by Third Highness Jiao Yun Liu. He had a clear advantage at his current ‘Paragon realm’.
In the future, when his cultivation reached the same level as Forefather Tian Yu and Lake Heart Island master, the strength of the Laws and Profound Mysteries system may be comparable with the Voidwalker lineage.
However, before that, at least during the Paragon realm, the Voidwalker system was able to suppress all other systems.
‘It is my fortune to have this opportunity to enter this Devil Mountain Cosmos, with its accelerated time flow of more than 3000 times faster than my home cosmos! Before the final battle erupts, I must grasp hold of all opportunities to improve my strength.’ Xue Ying felt that even though he was already quite strong, he had yet to reach the limit. He still had space for improvement as a Paragon.
Suddenly, there was a slight tremor outside the Eden Treasure.
Xue Ying looked up in confusion. ‘What is happening?’
“All protectors, hurry and protect His Highness!” An order rapidly transmitted over. It was apparently transmitted to all protectors. As Xue Ying was an expert from another cosmos, and hence did not have any karma in this cosmos, he had to rely on the communication treasure for information.
‘Protect His Highness?’ Xue Ying was stunned.
He then disappeared from the Eden World.
His Highness Jiao Yun Liu was incomparably excited as he rushed back to the palace on the surface. He then ordered the protectors standing beside him, “I’ll be entering closed-door cultivation. Nobody should come to disturb me.”
The four protectors said in unison.
Jiao Yun Liu rushed into his own secret palace hall, shutting the door and securing the lock before retrieving the golden bottle. He was just about to remove the Black Devil Sacred Fruits from the bottle when…
A tremor spread over.
Jiao Yun Liu’s expression changed. The core arrays on this planet were personally controlled by him. Thus, he was immediately able to sense that an enemy had barged in.
He hurried out of the palace hall. Just as he reached the palace doors, he saw a group of people standing high up in the sky. They were led by a male in golden armor, who had scarlet red scales covering his body, and a crimson scale on his forehead. He looked quite similar to Jiao Yun Liu, albeit with colder eyes.
“Big Brother?” Jiao Yun Liu’s expression turned ashen-gray at that moment.
“My pitiful little brother. Big brother is here again.” The golden-armored male teased. “Your luck is quite good, to actually discover a Black Devil Sacred Fruit Tree. Ze ze ze, and it has already ripened. How about giving them to your big brother?”
Jiao Yun Liu swept his gaze across the four protectors around him. He no longer had his usual friendliness. Instead, he was slightly frenzied as he gritted his teeth at them: “Who betrayed me?”
Of these four protectors, two were the ones who found the Black Devil Sacred Fruit Tree, and the other two were the ones he trusted the most; they were always by his side.
The information had been leaked. It was impossible for him to reveal it personally. Thus, it must have been one of the four protectors who knew of the Black Devil Sacred Fruit tree.
“We didn’t do it.”
“We immediately reported to Your Highness upon finding the Black Devil Sacred Fruit Tree. If we were planning to betray Your Highness, then it would have been pointless for us to inform you about this.” The two protectors hurriedly explained themselves.
“My useless little brother, after all this, you still don’t know? Cha Yun Nong, your mission is completed! There is no need for you to remain with this little brother of mine.” The golden-armored male sneered. At that moment, a tall gray-armored protector flew up towards the group of powerful experts beside the golden-armored male. He respectfully mentioned, “Actually, he did not suspect me at all. I can always remain by his side.”
His Highness Jiao Yun Liu was dumbfounded, staring at the tall gray-armored protector, “You, you betrayed me? Why, why?”
Of all the protectors, he trusted Cha Yun Nong the most.
His wife and Cha Yun Nong were siblings! Thus, he treated Cha Yun Nong especially well. Cha Yun Nong should have been the one with the lowest aptitude amongst his protectors. If not for him spending so much effort to support Cha Yun Nong, he would not be able to reach his current realm.
“Fool.” The tall gray-armored protector sneered and was too lazy to speak anymore.
“Little brother, why, are you planning to struggle?” The golden-armored chuckled.
“Third Highness.” By the side of the golden-armored male, there was a red-haired single-eyed old man who said with a grand voice, “There is no need to struggle. Hand over the Black Devil Sacred Fruits to the Eldest Prince! Otherwise, you and all your protectors will die!”
Within the Devil Mountain Cosmos, even the children of Void Gods would fight with one another.
As long as their souls did not dissipate, the Void God would not care. Without experiencing setbacks and difficulties, even if one had a precious bloodline, it would be tough for him to become strong. Even the Void God himself was fanning the flames behind the scenes, generating trials and tribulations for his children!
“Red Devil God-Emperor…” Jiao Yun Liu gritted his teeth.
He had fought with the eldest prince for so many years, and had always ended up disadvantaged, all because of this Ruler from another race–Red Devil God-Emperor!
With a Ruler helping his eldest brother, he would definitely end up disadvantaged in terms of combat force, and thus, he had been suffering losses all this while. His eldest brother had a cold and deranged personality–he had been endlessly tormenting the Third Highness. Furthermore, the Jiao Yun Emperor, who was cultivating in the deepest region of the “Primogenitor Devil Mountain”, couldn’t be bothered with the whole situation and had been watching coldly from the side.
“Hand them over. This time, my mood is quite good so I won’t play around with you.” The golden-armored male’s eyes were fervent and filled with desire. He would never have thought his little brother could have discovered the ‘Black Devil Sacred Fruit Tree’. If he weren’t afraid of his little brother destroying that tree, he would have acted long ago. Thus, he waited until the fruits were ripe–when the fruits would become incomparably solid and indestructible–before he showed his hand. That way, the fruits would not be damaged. Obtaining this sacred item would raising his chances of awakening his bloodline and allow him to step into the Ruler realm.
“Dream on!” Jiao Yun Liu growled.
“It’s a pity that you can’t even destroy it. Since you aren’t planning to agree to my request, then I can only take action.” The golden-armored male softly said. “Kill them all without mercy and take the Black Devil Sacred Fruits.”
“Yes.” His protectors acknowledged his orders.
The golden-armored male looked towards the Red Devil God-Emperor beside him. He was the biggest reliance he had. He had spent quite an effort just to pull this Ruler to his side. The God-Emperor softly nodded.
His Highness Jiao Yun Liu stood there, yet many rings of arrays abruptly activated from the palace behind him. There were even arrays situated across the entire planet being activated at this moment. It brought about a huge power.
His Highness Jiao Yun Liu, who was located under the many layers of protective arrays, retreated back into his palace. Looking at the crowd of enemies through the front door, he savagely roared out, “Jiao Yun Teng, carry on with your fantasies. Even if I die, I’ll never let you have them.”
“Why talk about death? You’ll only be losing this avatar of yours. You are still my little brother, how would I dare to truly kill you?” The golden-armored male laughed, “And there’s something which you are wrong about. After killing all of you, the Black Devil Sacred Fruits will naturally belong to me. You can’t hinder me at all.”
“Fellow protectors, hurry up and protect His Highness.” A protector, who followed His Highness closely, felt uneasy as he transmitted the message.
“Hu hu hu…”
Instantly, the many protectors who were scattered across the many cave dwellings on the planet came rushing over. The planet was not very large. Hence they could instantly appear right outside His Highness Jiao Yun Liu’s palace even just by flying over. Xue Ying was also one of those who rushed over after receiving the information.
The golden-armored male’s gaze swept over the protectors who rushed over. He sneered, “A group of trash. Kill them!”
