Chapter 744: Helping Others after benefiting from them
“What is this?” The Red Devil God-Emperor had never seen that before, but he instinctively felt threatened. Regardless, he did not have the time to defend against the incoming attack.
The spearhead pierced into the pauldrons on his white armor. This time, however, the tip of the spear directly penetrated into the armor and into his body. In this instant, the Termination Energy accumulated on the spearhead spontaneously exploded, and along with ripples of slaughter energy, propagated through Red Devil God-Emperor’s entire body.
Red Devil God-Emperor immediately turned flushed. He immediately directed the frost energy to freeze his body, doing his utmost to protect his body and remove the horrifying Termination Energy and Slaughter ripples.
Xue Ying immediately retrieved his spear after his attack, preparing to strike again.
Red Devil God-Emperor’s face was pale. Even though he had protected more than half his lifeforce by using his frost energy to freeze his body, he had lost at least 30%. Even though he would definitely be more wary of Xue Ying’s subsequent attacks, he would probably die after 10 strikes from Xue Ying.
He had lost.
Red Devil God-Emperor clearly understood this. Even though he still had several unused moves, facing Xue Ying with his superior concealment abilities and his horrifying spear techniques… he knew that defeat was inevitable.
“I would never have thought that I, the Red Devil God-Emperor, will actually lose to a Paragon. Hahaha…” Red Devil God-Emperor laughed heartily. The lone eye of his regained its usual calm, and he retracted his frost energy. However, at the same time, many incarnations began appearing around him. His real body disappeared and hid amongst the incarnations. The incarnations began to escape in all directions.
Xue Ying also appeared.
A blood wave suddenly exploded outward from Xue Ying, and his Slaughter Domain crazily expanded in all directions. This time, the speed of the expansion was clearly much faster than before. However, Red Devil God-Emperor was clearly desperate, as all his incarnations were fleeing madly.
“Hong~” The undulating blood wave reached the eldest prince Jiao Yun Teng within moments. Jiao Yun Teng’s expression had a massive change as he saw the incoming blood wave. He clearly understood that he could not defend against the power of this Slaughter Domain.
“Don’t kill him. Capture him alive!” Third Highness Jiao Yun Liu suddenly shouted.
Immediately after the shout sounded out, the section of the blood wave in front of the eldest prince parted open, avoiding him, continuing in pursuit of the escaping incarnations.
However, the incarnations were too fast, and the range of the protective arrays on the planet was too small. Thus, although a portion of the incarnations belonging to the Red Devil God-Emperor had been ‘submerged’ by the Slaughter Domain and dissipated, a large number of incarnations had successfully escaped out of the reach of the arrays. Having escaped the arrays, Red Devil God-Emperor immediately vanished. He had no intention of saving the eldest prince, as it was utterly pointless to even try. If he were to push his luck, it might just cost him his life.
Even though it was just an avatar, Red Devil God-Emperor did not wish to die!
Being defeated by a Paragon and being killed by a Paragon were two very different outcomes! Red Devil God-Emperor still had his dignity and wanted to maintain his reputation.
Red Devil God-Emperor appeared in the starry sky far away from the scene of the battle. He looked around, and only then did he dare to relax. He felt slightly helpless, and could only sigh.
“Such a disgrace.”
“My hometown cosmos has been conquered! Coming to this Devil Mountain Cosmos, I originally wanted to visit the ‘Primogenitor Devil Mountain’, yet I was utterly crushed to death. For the sake of obtaining enough resources for cultivation, I decided to rely on the eldest prince of a Void God clan. I would never have expected to suffer defeat at the hands of a Paragon.” Red Devil God-Emperor shook his head. Even though he did not save the eldest prince, he couldn’t care less.
After all, it was the eldest prince who had sought his help!
He was a Ruler. Any of the princes from the three Void God clans, as long as they were not Rulers themselves, would all have a great desire to rope him in.
However, a Ruler becoming the protector of a Paragon was already quite a disgraceful act.
“I’ve lost a great deal of my reputation this time. Such a huge matter was clearly witnessed by the two princes and many protectors. It will probably spread quickly across the entire Devil Mountain Cosmos! There are also powerful experts from other cosmos. Dong Bo Xue Ying will become famous by destroying my reputation.” Red Devil God-Emperor felt anguish. Although this was a bitter pill to swallow, he accepted it wholeheartedly, having responded to Xue Ying’s provocations and being forced to display his full strength.
Having been defeated when he was using his full strength, there was nothing he could say.
The blood wave rolled out, surrounding the eldest prince Jiao Yun Teng and his subordinates.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying.” The eldest prince squeezed out a smile. He offered, “You must have obtained many benefits from my little brother right? Whatever he is giving you, I can definitely give you more!”
“It’s too late for that.”
Xue Ying answered cooly.
In the past, he needed an opportunity to interact with other cultivation systems. Now that he got whatever he wished for, he could only rely on his own cultivation in the future.
“Protector Dong Bo.” His Highness Jiao Yun Liu, Shan Dan, Protector Cong, and the other protectors flew over to where Xue Ying was–along a cleared path within the blood waves. The protectors were looking at Xue Ying with shock and admiration. This was just like how Paragons viewed ‘Monarch Green’ in the Cultivator Cosmos! And at this moment, Xue Ying’s power was even more ridiculous. He had also opened three Daos, and two Daos had already reached the bottleneck. The Dao of Ripple had also reached the pinnacle. More importantly, he had the tremendously strong ‘Voidwalker lineage inheritance’. All these made him much stronger than Monarch Green in the past.
“”Your Highness.” Xue Ying asked. “Who should I kill?”
“Kill all other protectors. Leave only my eldest brother and Cha Yun Nong.” His Highness Jiao Yun Liu looked at Xue Ying. “Protector Dong Bo, if you have any opinion about this, please do say.”
Xue Ying did not respond.
The surrounding blood wave enshrouded the protectors with a single undulation. Xue Ying did not have any bad blood with the other protectors, although throughout the long competition between the two princes, the Third Highness” protectors had lost their lives many times over. If not for him, his own team would undoubtedly have been massacred. Xue Ying would naturally not be soft in his decision! After all, they were only avatars, and killing them would at most cost them their treasures.
The Slaughter Domain pulsed once again, and the other protectors were instantly eradicated, leaving behind Cha Yun Nong and the eldest prince ‘Jiao Yun Teng”.
“Jiao Yun Teng, my older brother. Have you ever thought that this day will come for you?” The Third Highness Jiao Yun Liu’s body was trembling slightly.
The eldest prince Jiao Yun Teng did not look at his little brother. Instead, he was staring at Xue Ying. “What exactly did my little brother give you?”
“The techniques of other cultivation systems and some absolute arts.” Xue Ying answered.
“Just that?” The eldest prince was in disbelief.
The Devil Mountain Cosmos was very encompassing of outsiders and was very easy-going with regards to imparting techniques. Although absolute arts were more precious, to people which statuses such as the eldest and third princes, these arts were not considered much.
“A spear, a robe-armor and a warship.” Xue Ying replied.
The eldest prince was speechless.
This was the default set of items every protector serving a prince would receive.
“Nothing else?” The eldest prince looked at Xue Ying before turning to the Third Highness Jiao Yun Liu. “My little brother, your fortune is terribly good.”
“I can give you ten or a hundred times more. Are you willing to become my protector?” The eldest prince looked at Xue Ying.
“I can do likewise!” Third Highness shouted out. He was honestly feeling anxious.
“Helping others after receiving favors.” Xue Ying simply stated, saying nothing more.
The bones of Xue Ying were filled with the spirit of karma–to take revenge on those who offended him, and to repay kindness to those who treated him well. During the past 30 million years, the Third Highness had provided him quite a lot of help. Thus, he was filled with gratitude towards the Third Highness. Naturally, he would repay this favor.
The eldest prince Jiao Yun Teng knew that it was pointless to persuade Xue Ying. Such a heaven-shattering Paragon would naturally be proud and aloof. Jiao Yun Teng said indistinctly, “My little brother has the Black Devil Sacred Fruits. The Black Devil Sacred Fruits may not be that useful for other cultivation systems, but it is a priceless treasure to those of our bloodline cultivation system. Why not kill my little brother and snatch the Black Devil Sacred Fruits? You could exchange the Black Devil Sacred Fruits could for benefits that will far surpass your imaginations.”
Jiao Yun Teng watched as the Third Prince Jiao Yun Liu’s expression turn ashen-gray. “Little brother, it is hard to say for certain that who will win or who will lose. The Black Devil Sacred Fruits? If I can’t get them, then no one can!”
Jiao Yun Teng’s body suddenly exploded.
However, the rolling blood wave easily covered the explosion, and the shockwaves from the explosion were dissipated by the “Slaughter Domain”.
Silence pervaded the area. Shan Dan, Protector Cong, and others turned to the third prince and Xue Ying.
Black Devil Sacred Fruits?
“There remains Cha Yun Nong’s true body. Your Highness, you can deal with him yourself.” Xue Ying said before causing the endless blood wave to dissipate. There was just a single Cha Yun Nong left behind. It was easy for His Highness and the group of protectors to kill him.
“Protector Dong Bo? Brother Dong Bo?” His Highness Jiao Yun Liu looked at Xue Ying. He could not help but feel emotional and glad at the same time.
“Your Highness.” Cha Yun Nong shouted out at this moment.
Jiao Yun Liu’s expression shifted. He turned over with a look of indignation. “You still have the cheek to shout for me? I’ve trusted you for so long. I must have been blind during the past. Kill him.”
Instantly, all the protectors were glaring at Cha Yun Nong with surging killing intent.
Jiao Yun Liu brought Xue Ying into the palace. He sat down in the hall facing Xue Ying. The maidservants brought wine over for them.
There was still snow left outside–it was snow created by the frost energy from Red Devil God-Emperor.
Jiao Yun Liu personally poured wine for Xue Ying, chuckling, “I would never have expected myself to have the fortune of having Brother Dong Bo become my protector. From this day on, Brother Dong Bo will no longer be my protector. Instead, you will be my brother. If you think I am worthy of being so, then come and drink this cup of wine.” He personally placed the cup of wine right in front of Xue Ying.
Xue Ying received the cup of wine. “Many thanks, Your Highness.”
The two toasted and downed the wine.
“Hahaha…” Jiao Yun Liu’s current mood was terrific. “This time, Brother Dong Bo was able to defeat Red Devil God-Emperor. It is truly amazing for a Paragon to defeat a Ruler. I believe that the news will quickly spread across the entire Devil Mountain Cosmos, and then to many other cosmoses. The moment this news is spread, there will likely be some things happening.”
“Some things happening?” Xue Ying revealed a look of surprise. “I hope that Your Highness could advise me on the situation.”
Xue Ying had occasionally chatted with the protectors during his extended stay here, allowing him to gain a greater understanding of the Devil Mountain Cosmos. He also understood what defeating Red Devil God-Emperor meant. Naturally, his understanding could not compare to the third prince’s knowledge and information.
Furthermore, revealing his power was part of his plan.
His teacher, Bloodshed God-Emperor, had discussed with him long before: “Xue Ying, if you are forced to, you do not have to hide the techniques of our cultivation system from the Devil Mountain Cosmos. The Laws and Profound Mysteries system is not some huge secret within the boundless Primal Chaos Void. What our system emphasizes the most is comprehension ability! Thus, it will not mean anything even if it was spread about. Without having the guidance of seniors, cultivating it will be tough. Your mission is to collect everything that would be of help to our cosmos, whether cultivation systems, magical spells, or other techniques.”
Xue Ying had made adequate preparations.
With his current realm, he had long cultivated the avatar technique which his teacher had given him; he had another avatar hiding within the Devil Mountain Cosmos! After all, the flow of time was more than 3,000 faster here, and it would be helpful to his cultivation.
“You could have heard of this from the other protectors, but they do not know much about it.” His Highness Jiao Yun Liu poured wine for himself. At the same time, he said rather proudly. “So allow me to explain it to you in detail.”
