Chapter 757: Inside the Grass House
The blood wave rolled out and engulfed the entire frost world. Some ice crystals did not shatter, but after holding up for a while, those crystals broke eventually since the damage to the structure of those crystals would only accumulate over time in the ‘Slaughter Domain’. Furthermore, after undergoing the ‘Dream Cultivation’, Xue Ying had further improved the ‘Slaughter Domain’ after experiencing many battles.
Xue Ying stood at the center. The surrounding blood sea rolled and spread in all directions. The ice crystals were no longer able to threaten him any longer.
“He… he is actually able to resist the first wave by force?” The white-haired old man was slightly stunned, “The domain he utilized, according to the investigation of laws by the Starting Ground, made use of profound mysteries that are still in the limits of the Opening realm, yet its power has reached such a stage?”
Monarch Green was able to fuse different Daos together, giving him the strength to fight against Rulers.
Xue Ying had similarly grasped three Daos, of which he could use the Dao of Slaughter and Dao of Ripple in tandem perfectly.
“Chi chi chi~”
The temperature was still decreasing.
Amidst the rolling blood wave, some black liquid bodies began condensing. The black liquid bodies appeared within the ‘Slaughter Domain’, and they did not decompose after that. Instead, the black liquid bodies were able to hold on for a further period! And as the temperature dipped, the number of black liquid droplets increased even further.
“The second wave of survival trial has begun.” That white-haired old man looked from afar, “This battle is more dangerous than the previous one.”
Xue Ying frowned.
Currently, the many droplets of black liquid bodies were able to withstand for a breath of time in the Slaughter Domain. Because the black liquid bodies were continuously forming in greater amounts, over time, there became more black liquid droplets in the grand Slaughter Domain. The world had not started releasing its attacks. Clearly, the black liquid bodies were still being accumulated, making Xue Ying feel a faint threat.
“Interesting. Come on! Let’s see how formidable you are.” Xue Ying was looking forward to this. In the worst case, he would just hide in his Mirage world and depend on the Mirage world or void techniques to hide. Even if some remnant force from the attack reached him, he could easily withstand it with his body.
Xue Ying was fully confident. He was not cornered to the extent that he had to hide to survive.
The countless black liquid bodies abruptly moved. They tore through the blood wave Slaughter Domain and surged right towards Xue Ying.
“Wind Ripple Path second technique, domain!” Countless ripples exploded out from the surface of Xue Ying’s body. The endless ripples immediately fused together as one with the Slaughter Domain as they charged out in all directions. The moment they touched the black liquid droplets, “peng peng peng”! Every single black liquid droplet directly exploded. Within moments, almost all the black liquid droplets had been exterminated.
This was none other than the second volume of his self-created absolute art, “Wind Ripple Path”. It was a killing move used together with the Slaughter Domain.
The Slaughter Domain was a fusion of the Dao of Slaughter and Dao of Ripple!
The absolute art “Wind Ripple Path” was the same.
During the days of Dream Cultivation, Xue Ying had fused the two together, significantly increasing the power of the Slaughter Domain. This was also one of the moves created purely for the Slaughter Domain in the “Wind Ripple Path”.
“This, this…” The white-haired old man widened his eyes as he observed this. The countless black liquid exploded in moments, causing him to disbelieve what he just saw, “Master has created this cosmos. This is the eighth cosmos epoch already, and none were able to pass through the Opening trial yet. There might be some who got through the trail in the previous seven epochs, but none was as tyrannical as this.”
That’s right. The trial itself was very overbearing. It would continuously attack the trial-taker in overwhelming amounts. According to logic, Xue Ying should have hidden himself to survive.
But nevertheless, he was just breaking apart all incoming attacks.
“The third wave and also the final wave.” The white-haired old man looked at Xue Ying with expectation.
As the temperature sank further, the frost world’s vast frost land had instead started ‘thawing’. Xue Ying personally observed as the entire frost land thaw into countless black liquid bodies. They were swiftly converging into a huge monstrous beast. This monstrous black beast was like a black Flood Dragon, albeit its front claws were exceptionally savage.
“Such fearsome beast.” Xue Ying looked at the monstrous black beast that was transformed from the colossal frost land. The monstrous black beast glared at Xue Ying, letting out a world-shattering roar.
Following that, it charged over aggressively.
Xue Ying snorted out first.
Then an unseen ripple which explosively burst out from the surface of his body. The Slaughter Domain also rapidly fluctuated out–inundating over the incoming black monstrous beast. The surface of that monstrous black beast quaked from the domain strike. It was injured by the domain attack, breaking down into many black streams. Regardless, its immensely huge body was still relatively well.
“Wind Ripple Path third technique, Annihilate!” Xue Ying fiercely hacked out with his right hand. His right arm grew explosively. It was so big it covered the entire place. His palm came down like a great ax, and that enormous black monstrous beast also waved its front claws to meet Xue Ying’s palm.
A palm chopping down.
The black, fierce beast suddenly broke down back into the endless black liquid from this strike. Following that, the temperature of the world began rising once again. The black liquid soon scattered and dispelled back into its original endless frost air flow.
Xue Ying kept his Slaughter Domain. He stood at his original position frowning.
“The fourth technique of “Wind Ripple Path”… should be much purer than this.” Countless thoughts were clashing in Xue Ying’s mind. Ever since waking up, he did not dare to cultivate because he was afraid he might just break through in the laws and profound mysteries to the Ruler realm carelessly! That way, he would no longer be qualified to take part in the Opening realm trial.
And now, because he had displayed “Wind Ripple Path” during the battle, utilizing the laws and profound mysteries of the “Wind Ripple Path” to his cravings, the massive amounts of experience he had during the Dream Cultivation began clashing against each other. Naturally, he had some inkling of what the fourth volume for “Wind Ripple Path” should be.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying, congratulations for passing through the trial.” The white-haired old man fell into a daze momentarily before giving his congratulations.
“If I break through now into the Ruler realm, I should still be able to get the rewards by Forefather right?” Xue Ying asked.
“Hahaha, you have passed through the trial, so it is no problem for you to break through to the Ruler realm.” The white-haired old man said with shock, “Why, are you breaking through? That’s right too since the utilization of your laws and profound mysteries have reached this realm, and breaking through will come naturally.”
Xue Ying might be chatting with the white-haired old man, but in his mind, many of his ideas were currently clashing with one another. The vast amount of experience and understanding he had gathered from the Dream Cultivation were currently fusing together. One could say that 99% of his concentration was on this.
“Shall we leave?” The white-haired old man suggested.
“Let’s.” Xue Ying chuckled. The other two avatars of his were also currently immersed in the deep clash of ideas and experiences.
The white-haired old man brought Xue Ying out of that frost world. He was still clicking his tone and sighing, “Forefather has left behind this trial to test your survival capabilities, yet you actually destroyed everything in a direct clash. Truly formidable, very formidable, at least much more than the previous brat who specialized in time-space.”
“Specialized in time-space? Temporal Island Lord?” Xue Ying could not help but blurt out.
“Mn, let’s not mention about him.” The white-haired old man pointed to the three grass houses in the distant. His eyes were emitting light, “Your great opportunity has arrived. Let us move quicker.”
Xue Ying nodded. He was looking forward to seeing what Forefather Tian Yu leave behind for these descendant disciples of his.
When they got to about 100-200 meters by the grass house, the surrounding world started distorting. Because he had experienced this previously, Xue Ying walked on calmly. He went through many of the distorted layers of world before finally, walking through the protection of the layered world and arriving right in front of the grass house located to the left.
“Go in.” The white-haired old man laughed.
Xue Ying nodded.
Of the three grass houses, the left house was meant for those who got through the Opening realm trial. Only those who passed through the Ruler trial were qualified to enter the center house. The right house was a treasure cove.
“Zhi ya”, Xue Ying lightly pushed open the ordinary-looking wooden door of the grass house. Inside the grass house, it was a piece of darkness. It seemed like a vortex that made it difficult to perceive.
Stepping in, he walked through this layer of the dark vortex.
Everything changed in front of him.
This was an ordinary house. It had a long narrow table inside and a praying mat. On top of the table, there was a purple gown and a piece of purple talisman.
Suddenly, a figure appeared on top of the praying mat.
That was a slightly-hunchbacked old figure. He had a smile as he looked at Xue Ying: “Descendant, your cosmos is actually created by me. The many living beings within your cosmos is also created by me. For you to pass through the Opening trial and enter this location meant that you are a violet-robed disciple of my ‘Great Void Heaven Temple’. Oh, the Great Void Heaven Temple is a sect which is created after I was invited over by the ‘Devil Mountain Primogenitor’ and ‘Jade Light Master’ to the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World.”
