Chapter 774: Death of Forefather Black Devil
The true bodies of Pang Yi, Monarch Green, Purgatory Ruler, Temporal Island Lord, Abyss Primogenitor, Empress Qian He, Myriad God Palace Head and Primal Master were deep within Lake Heart Island. With a chuckle, Pang Yi brought up the Eden treasure, and said, “Fellow people, time for us to leave.”
“Wait a moment, Brother Pang Yi.” A voice sounded. The white-robed Xue Ying appeared. As a member of the Destruction Legion, he could directly teleport in from the outer world.
“Bringing the people out is a small matter, why did you rush over?”
The Rulers said this with a smile. In the cultivator world, respect was given to experts. Xue Ying naturally commanded respect by his terrifying power. The others had a faint understanding that with his fast cultivation speed, Xue Ying was likely the one with the greatest chance of becoming a Void God after Bloodshed God-Emperor.
“There’s a minor matter which I must trouble you with. Could you please release Forefather Black Devil from within the Eden treasure?” Xue Ying requested. Turning to Temporal Island Lord, Xue Ying added “Temporal Island Lord, I still hope to seek your understanding in this. The vengeance of my teacher cannot be left unattended.”
Temporal Island Lord frowned. His expression soured.
Temporal Island Lord was infuriated. Forefather Black Devil had depended on him no matter what. Now that Xue Ying had clearly decided to kill Forefather Black Devil in the open, he was using the reason of ‘resolving vengeance for his teacher’. But he understood too…that it depended ultimately on Bloodshed God-Emperor because the Eden treasure belonged to Bloodshed God-Emperor, and Temporal Island Lord had no say in the matter.
“Hmph.” Temporal Island Lord snorted coldly, “You are a Ruler. Killing a powerful existence is bullying the juniors, isn’t it?”
“I said before that this vengeance which my teacher has must be resolved!” Xue Ying’s voice turned cold too.
He took the initiative to mention this matter. That was giving the other party enough respect.
Could Temporal Island Lord even hinder him if he wanted to kill Forefather Black Devil?
“Hmph hmph.” Temporal Island Lord coldly chuckled, “Ruler Dong Bo’s combat power is higher than I. Within the region of the Lake Heart Island historical remain, you and Pang Yi do not suffer from any obstructions and I can’t protect him at all. But the question is, can you kill him?”
“He has another avatar outside this cosmos?” Xue Ying sneered.
He had long discovered that.
Using karma, he discovered that Forefather Black Devil had just a single body within this cosmos. He could not find any other body of his at all. Either he was hiding in a location similar to the Starting Ground, or that he had left for another cosmos! Oh, there was another possibility–he had no avatar. But that would be a real joke since Forefather Black Devil was only thinking about surviving. If he did not refine one, then it would be death all the same if Xue Ying killed his true body.
“Right, his other avatar is indeed in another cosmos and hasn’t returned at all.” Temporal Island Lord sneered, “Is Ruler Dong Bo still confident of killing him?”
Pang Yi chuckled by the side. With a thought, Forefather Black Devil appeared.
Because Xue Ying had been relying on the laws of domain to forcibly isolate all karmic voice transmissions and communication techniques. Within this domain of his… everything he determined would be the law! Unless other Rulers also used their law domain to resist, nevertheless, everyone understood the request of Xue Ying and they had no reason to go against him at this moment. Temporal Island Lord did not have the chance to remind Forefather Black Devil either.
“Temporal Island.” Forefather Black Devil saw Temporal Island Lord. He then turned towards the group of Rulers and then turned to the white-robed Xue Ying. That caused his heart to jolt. However, since he left an avatar in another cosmos, he could still maintain his calm.
“Forefather Black Devil.” Xue Ying opened his mouth.
The voice fluttered fleetingly in the surroundings. Forefather Black Devil could only see the world in front of him ‘distorting’.
The surrounding Rulers discovered that the eyes of Forefather Black Devil had fallen into a daze. At that moment, they understood Forefather Black Devil had been struck.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying.” Closely following that, it seemed as though Forefather Black Devil had regained his consciousness. He pointed to the void by the side and roared, “You want to kill me? What a pity. My luck is good. I have another avatar which is located outside this cosmos, so you can’t kill me at all. As for this body… haha, so what if you kill me?”
Following a loud laughter, Forefather Black Devil abruptly exploded.
“Admirable.” Purgatory Ruler said, “You are actually able to force Black Devil to commit suicide despite being separated by a cosmos.”
“Black Devil’s avatar suicided first before this true body of his did so.” Primal Master said with praise, “It is indeed amazing.”
At this point, the expression of Temporal Island Lord turned even uglier.
“It is merely just an illusory realm.” Xue Ying explained.
His Dao of Mirage had reached the Ruler realm. In terms of controlling the illusory realm, he was indisputably the first in the Cultivator Cosmos. Just a mere ordinary powerful existence… with a single move, Xue Ying had caused him to fall into an illusory realm. His true body and avatar were both connected via memories. Hence, both bodies had entered the illusory realm. Xue Ying could then easily guide both the avatar and true body of Forefather Black Devil to suicide one after another. After his avatar suicided, the soul of the true body would become unique, which Primal Master found out using some secret technique. That was how he determined that the avatar suicided first before the true body did so.
“Let’s go. Let us exit.” Temporal Island Lord coldly said.
Pang Yi nodded.
He then brought everyone with a teleport out of the Lake Heart Island historical remain. Reaching the starry sky in the outer world, Pang Yi began teleporting out large amounts of cultivators from within the Eden treasure. The Paragons, the powerful existences many World Deities and talented youngsters–practically all the strongest geniuses from the Cultivator Cosmos were teleported out.
“Proceed with moving according to the previous plan.” Pang Yi said.
“Yes.” The Paragons and powerful existences all acknowledged. The few hundred experts were responsible for moving the others back, albeit they could not help but turn towards Xue Ying. They were able to sense that…’Monarch Dong Bo’ who was once the three ancestors of Bloodshed God Palace was currently standing with the Rulers. The unseen aura he emanated was not any weaker than the Rulers. This scene startled them slightly.
They did not dare believe that Xue Ying who cultivated for such a short period would have become a Ruler. They could not help but let their minds run wild at what appeared in front of them.
“Monarch Dong Bo has genuinely become a Ruler. If not for Monarch Dong Bo, the war with the Ancestor Mother Religion will not end so quickly.” Pang Yi added.
Monarch Green, Primal Master and the rest nodded.
Silence fell for a moment.
The many powerful existences present, the World Deities of the entire Cultivator Cosmos, and the large batches of young brats had heard it clearly… the legendary Monarch, Dong Bo, had become a Ruler! This startled them; it felt like a miracle!
The war had ended. Everyone began moving back to the various locations. The entire Cultivator Cosmos also regained its usual peace. Powerful existences at the apex level also found out that other than Monarch Dong Bo who had become a Ruler, the publicly-acknowledged strongest existence in the Deity world and Abyss, ‘Bloodshed God-Emperor’ had reached a higher realm. Many powerful existences were exclaiming in admiration about this.
When Disciple Brother Hui Ming and Forefather Scarlet Flame found out that Forefather Black Devil had died, they felt all knots in their hearts loosening. Compared to Xue Ying, the two had deeper relations with Sacred Master Crimson Dust.
Xue Ying’s relationship with Sacred Master Crimson Dust was indeed very shallow. While killing Forefather Black Devil was partly to repay the Sacred Master’s kindness, on the other hand, Xue Ying had wanted to kill of his own accord, as Forefather Black Devil had done many evil deeds.
‘I’ve become a Ruler. In the past, I’ve thought of doing many things, and it is time for me to do so now.’ Xue Ying thought, ‘But the retaliation by Temporal Island Lord will be very strong.’
