Chapter 748: Entering the Mountain
In the Cultivator Cosmos, within the little small wooden courtyard of Bloodshed God Palace.
The red-robed Xue Ying walked into the courtyard. Bloodshed God-Emperor, who had long sensed his presence, rushed out and looked toward his disciple. “Xue Ying, for your avatar to have rushed back from the Devil Mountain Cosmos, is it that you have found something?”
The red-robed Xue Ying nodded. “I’ve met one of the Void Gods in the Devil Mountain Cosmos fortuitously. Because of the third prince, I was able to try and ask him for help. There is no hope of getting the blood essence of Thousand-eyed Fire Insect. However, he gave me the entire “Myriad Catalog”.” Upon saying that, he flipped his hand, causing a circular golden plate to appear, and he passed it to his teacher.
Bloodshed God-Emperor’s eyes brightened. He looked at that circular gold plate with much excitement. Extending his hand, he gave it a slight sense before revealing a look of joy. A significant amount of information from the circular plate was rushing into his mind, and it was only after a few breaths did he finally regain his consciousness.
“Good, good, good.” Bloodshed God-Emperor was so proud and aloof, yet at this moment, he was revealing a joyful expression. His gaze towards that circular gold plate was filled with great desire.
He had waited for this for far too long.
The two treasures he desired the most were the blood essence of the Thousand-eyed Fire Insect and the”Myriad Catalog”. Since he knew the Devil Mountain Cosmos had a higher overall strength, and that it seemed their background was extraordinary–they were able to conquer eight other cosmoses and were linked with several other cosmoses–he had decided to request his own disciple to help him. He did not know how precious the blood essence of the Thousand-eyed Fire Insect would be, as he had only discovered a brief description of it within the inheritances. Instead, he understood more about the “Myriad Catalog”.
He was ranked first in the Cultivator Cosmos for refinement, ranked first in attainments of arrays, precisely because he had obtained the first and second volume of the “Myriad Catalog”. That was why he had such extraordinary accomplishments.
Those two treasures were the reason for his surging strength.
After touching the threshold of the Void Gods, he had become much stronger and was able to fight five other Rulers–he had once injured the five Religious Leaders from the Ancestor Mother Religion. One could see how strong he was. Thus, the stronger he was, the more help he could provide for the cosmos. If he broke through and became a Void God! Then he could simply announce that the war was over.
“Xue Ying, I’ve sought after the “Myriad Catalog” for so long, and I would never have expected that it would be you who helped me find it.” Bloodshed God-Emperor chuckled as he looked at Xue Ying.
“It is fortunate that Temporal Island Lord had discovered this cosmos passage then. Otherwise, it would have been impossible for me to enter the Devil Mountain Cosmos.” Xue Ying said. “Thus, it’s all thanks to luck.”
“Without your strength, you wouldn’t have achieved all of this.” Bloodshed God-Emperor nodded. “You have to be careful there. Right now, are you going to the Primogenitor Devil Mountain?”
“I’m inside.” Xue Ying nodded.
“Always be vigilant!” Bloodshed God-Emperor reminded him once again. He did not wish for this disciple of his to die in the Devil Mountain Cosmos!
“Mn.” Xue Ying nodded.
In the core of the Devil Mountain Cosmos–’Primogenitor Devil Mountain’.
Within the 32 cavern dwellings in the outer layer of the entire Primogenitor Devil Mountain, there were 32 edges. At the entrance of one of the cavern dwellings, a white-haired girl was seated, enjoying some wine. Her expression was sullen, and her eyes were flashing with frost. “Dong Bo Xue Ying? Where did this Paragon pop up from? I’ve never heard of him. It seems that he should be from some unknown cosmos, yet he was actually able to defeat Red Devil God-Emperor?”
“A Paragon defeating a Ruler?”The white-haired girl said in a low voice. Her tone was chilly. “And now, he has entered the Primogenitor Devil Mountain and will probably be challenging me soon.”
She was one of the three Paragons inside the Primogenitor Devil Mountain. She was the third-ranked ‘Paragon Snow Goddess’.
She was cold and aloof, but she was powerful too. For the sake of power, she was ruthless towards everyone. Being able to rank third and enter the Primogenitor Devil Mountain, the price she had paid was far too high. Now, Xue Ying was about to enter, and it felt like dark clouds were enveloping her. She could feel the unseen pressure. After all, Xue Ying was unlike the past challengers–he had defeated Red Devil God-Emperor!
“No. I’ve forked out so much just to get entry into the Primogenitor Devil Mountain. This is my place, and I will absolutely not allow anyone else to snatch it away.” The white-haired girl was anxious and furious at the same time. However, she could not think of a way out.
Because the rules of the Primogenitor Devil Mountain were strict, and no one dared to play with the rules.
“Go, go and scout that Dong Bo Xue Ying who has entered the Primogenitor Devil Mountain. If you discover anything at all, report to me immediately.” The white-haired girl looked towards an old servant by her side. The servant was a puppet. Within the Primogenitor Devil Mountain, other than the Void Gods, the 39 Rulers, and three Paragons, there were no other genuine lifeforms. The rest were all puppets.
“Yes, master.” The old servant acknowledged respectfully, before heading out of the Primogenitor Devil Mountain.
The white-haired girl held onto her wine cup. She could not help but smash the wine cup in her hands to smithereens, gritting her teeth. “No one should dare to think about snatching this spot from me. No one!”
Xue Ying, on the other hand, was leaving the meteorite, following the lead of ‘Ruler Official E’ and flying towards the entrance of Primogenitor Devil Mountain.
The two of them were rushed down, landing outside the entrance.
There was a huge platform by the entrance. Located deep beyond the stage was a single entrance. And by the side of the entrance, there were two words–’Devil Mountain’! The two huge words generated a heavy pressure that stifled Xue Ying’s thoughts. He muttered inwardly, ‘Those two words… were they left behind by the legendary primogenitor?’
There were only two words, yet the pressure he felt was this huge? Just how strong was that primogenitor?
“Another brat has come?”
Two consecutive sounds seemed to ring out simultaneously.
By the two sides of the entrance, there were two cavern dwellings. A large monstrous puppet was walking out from one of them. This monstrous puppet looked quite like an ape–he had two long arms. However, there were two huge twisted horns on his head. His entire body was refined from a unique metal. As for the other puppet coming from the other cavern, she seemed to be an ordinary old granny leaning on a walking stick.
“Greetings, mountain protectors.” Ruler Official E slightly bowed.
Xue Ying similarly greeted too.
“Is he the Paragon you mentioned, who will be taking on the challenge, Dong Bo Xue Ying?” The old granny leaning on a walking stick stared at Xue Ying.
“Yes.” Ruler Official E said.
“Let’s go.” The old granny and the monster headed to one side. Xue Ying and Ruler Official E followed closely behind.
Not far off from the side of the entrance, there was a lake.
After the old granny and the monstrous puppet walked over, the old granny brought up her walking stick and casually waved it in the lake. “Hua~” A stream of water began flying up into the sky. It soon condensed into a silvery-white soldier. He landed on the ground, and confusion was present in his eyes.
“This is a puppet that has just been born. He is more foolish.” The old granny casually said. “Even though it might be a puppet at the Ruler realm, but because he has just been born, he isn’t that strong in battling, thus, making him appropriate as the target of your Paragon trial.”
“Ruler realm puppet?” Xue Ying was slightly dumbstruck as he eyed that lake.
The lake was quiet. There were no ripples on the surface.
But just a stream of water was able to form a Ruler realm puppet? What exactly was this lake?
“Be careful.” Ruler Official E said from the side. “Even though he has just been formed, he was created using Devil Lake Water. Within the entire Primogenitor Devil Mountain… according to my knowledge, the most unfathomable place would be this lake. Even Monarchs are helpless against it. A casual stream of water is able to form this small brat. Despite having just been born, he is quite powerful.”
“I understand.” Xue Ying nodded.
“Little doll.” The old granny holding on to the walking stick lightly slapped the silvery-white soldier’s shoulder and pointed at Xue Ying. “In a while, follow my orders. I’ll let you fight with all your strength to kill him.”
At this moment…
At another place above the Primogenitor Devil Mountain, there were other people, like the servant who came under the instructions of the white-haired girl and several other bored Rulers, watching the battle at the entrance. They had all heard of a rising Paragon called ‘Xue Ying’ who had defeated Red Devil God-Emperor. He was someone with high hopes of succeeding in his entry to the Primogenitor Devil Mountain.
“He is Dong Bo Xue Ying?”
“I’ve never heard of him before. I am not sure which cosmos he came from either.” Those Rulers were all seated in groups or twos and threes. They were enjoying wine and chatting with each other while spectating this battle.
