Chapter 775: This Day has finally arrived
“Master.” A muffled voice sounded.
Temporal Island Lord, seated upon a silvery-white grass mat, opened his eyes. He knew the voice was that of the Temporal Temple treasure spirit which was reporting to him.
“What’s the matter?” Temporal Island Lord asked.
“Several little fellows that were under my control have been taken by Monarch Dong Bo.”, the treasure spirit said with its muffled voice. “He has also removed the imprints I left on them. They are the people that Monarch Dong Bo knew when he was a Transcendent – Jian Huang, Meishan Clan Master, and others.”
“Hmph.” Temporal Island Lord snorted coldly. “Let him bring them away then. There are millions and millions of Reincarnators, losing those few don’t matter much.”
“Alright.” The muffled voice obediently answered.
“Go.” Temporal Island Lord was tired of this conversation.
“This Dong Bo Xue Ying seems to be someone who places great emphasis on relationships.” Temporal Island Lord’s eyes were filled with frost, but a faint figure came into form deep in his heart. It was far, and blurry, but that figure was also the most important person in his life. However, it had become an illusion now. All of it had turned into a joke, no more, no less.
Temporal Island Lord sneered, and muttered to himself, “I’ve previously gotten intelligence saying that he had reincarnated a batch of little fellows from the River of Time – someone named Tong San, a Cheng Ling Shu, and other weaker little juniors. Those should be the people of the Xia Clan world. Who would have thought that he would even save the Reincarnators who had adventured on Crimson Rock Mountain with him before? He is truly tender! It’s a wonder that he became a Ruler in such a short period despite how tender he is!”
As disdainful as he was of the situation, he could do nothing but accept it.
Xue Ying’s power was considered amongst the top of Rulers. Only Monarch Green and Purgatory Ruler could fight with him. If he were to use that Black Gourd… unless Bloodshed God-Emperor acted, he would be invincible! In terms of power, he could entirely suppress the Temporal Island Lord! Thus, Temporal Island Lord could only endure!
Furthermore, the situation was no longer the same. Bloodshed God-Emperor had become a Void God, towering over everyone! None dared to offend him, because when this cosmos reincarnation ended, they needed Bloodshed God-Emperor to bring them all away.
Bloodshed God-Emperor was even also the teacher of Xue Ying!
The Rulers would definitely befriend Xue Ying regardless of his strength or potential for the sake of their future! Thus, as peeved as he was, Temporal Island Lord could only endure for now.
With the power he had, he could accomplish anything that he wanted to! Xue Ying had reincarnated a large group of people as easily as lifting his hands. However, this was no light matter for the people who were reincarnated. The moment Meishan Clan Master met with his true love, his face was trickling with tears, while Jian Huang was guffawing so madly that tears had formed in his eyes…
Xue Ying arrived at the old base of the Ancestor Mother Religion amidst the starry sky. The spherical castle was currently enveloped by many complex arrays, all of them under the control of Bloodshed God-Emperor, who was standing at a distance as he continued to ponder and comprehend about them. As for the Wooden Mustache War Vessel, it had long been invaded, with all of the Religious Leaders within being annihilated by Bloodshed God-Emperor.
“You’re here, Xue Ying.” chuckled Bloodshed God-Emperor as he looked at his disciple. He then turned towards the ancient spherical castle, and sighed, “This base of the Ancestor Mother Religion contains just two Religious Leaders, and have been tortured to death by me using some secret techniques. Currently, nobody is living in the castle, yet I can’t open it or refine it at all. Xue Ying, do you have any methods?”
Xue Ying sighed inwardly. His teacher had indeed become a Void God. He could actually kill the two Religious Leaders despite being located inside the base of the Ancestor Mother Religion.
“When it comes to arrays or treasures, there is too large a gap between me and you, teacher. Thus, there is little need for Teacher to ask me about this.” Xue Ying answered.
Bloodshed God-Emperor chuckled. Xue Ying was right too. His disciple might be talented, but research on the myriad existences ultimately required one to spend a significant amount of time and effort, with excellent comprehension ability before one could achieve large success. Without sufficient time, it was impossible for one to attain great accomplishments.
“Did you come here just to see me?” Bloodshed God-Emperor chuckled, “Tell me, what’s the matter?”
With his current realm, he was absolutely unparalleled in the cosmos. Currently, he only sought to walk further in his cultivation! Those of the same clan like ‘Ancestor Devil’ and ‘Lake Heart Island Swordmaster’ had all walked ahead.
“There is indeed a matter.” Xue Ying solemnly said, “Teacher, the Temporal Temple has taken root in the Deity world, the Abyss, and even the material realm. It is a malignant tumor to the entire cosmos, for it could forcibly bring grade three True Meaning Transcendents away, controlling their souls, before forcing them to undergo many life-death missions…forcing them to temper themselves between life and death. Many batches of them have died. Only grade two True Meaning Transcendents have the power to decline it; however, how difficult would it be for a grade two True Meaning Transcendent to emerge in a mortal world? One could say that in the countless mortal worlds, the Temporal Temple can grab whoever they wanted, causing millions and millions of lives to be tortured and die. Even if a few became Deities, they are still under their control!”
“The moment they are snatched away, it is too difficult for them to regain their freedom.”
Xue Ying looked at Bloodshed God-Emperor, “Thus, the Temporal Temple should not exist! Even if it remains, it cannot so wantonly take away countless lives within the cosmos.”
Bloodshed God-Emperor nodded after hearing that, “What you said makes sense. I agree with you. You came looking for me because you wanted me to step forward personally?”
“Yes. Temporal Island Lord controls the time-space. It is unlikely for him to lower his head if I were to mention this matter. If it were Teacher, then things will be different.” Xue Ying replied.
Bloodshed God-Emperor lightly nodded, “Some time ago, I, Primal Master, and others were against this as well, but we could not deal with Temporal Island Lord then. We could only negotiate with him to set down several rules to maintain the balance of the cosmos.”
“But now, it is time for things to change.” Bloodshed God-Emperor nodded, “How about this: from now on, the Temporal Temple can only bring away those who have already died! Resculpting their fleshy bodies again before sending them to start on another life journey.”
“Alright.” Xue Ying’s eyes brightened.
By right, dying was the end of one’s life journey,
Giving them a chance for a new journey might be a good thing for them.
“This matter will be as such then.” Bloodshed God-Emperor nodded. With his current status, he could force Temporal Island Lord to obediently listen to him just by speaking. If the other party disagreed with him? He would simply eliminate the Temporal Temple!
“Teacher, I have always wanted to ask you, why did you construct the Bloodshed Tavern in the past?” Xue Ying asked.
Bloodshed God-Emperor raised his eyebrow, and chuckled, “You brat, firstly, I have constructed many Bloodshed Taverns across the Deity world, Abyss, and material realm because it is impossible for assassins to be put to an end. Since that’s the case, I might as well give the assassin profession some rules. Secondly, the primary reason why I created the Bloodshed Tavern is that as the many assassins across the cosmos carry out their killings, I will have part of this karma too… I would let this endless karma inflict on my body day and night – slaughter, blood, vengeance… everything was meant to temper my heart realm and allow me to reach a deeper comprehension in the ‘Dao of Destruction’ and ‘Dao of Bloodshed’.”
Xue Ying was stunned.
For the sake of cultivation?
Letting endless karma inflict on his body day and night, allowing countless blood and howls to surround himself for eternity? Living like that would be akin to torture!
“Carry on.” Bloodshed God-Emperor said.
Since the mention came from Bloodshed God-Emperor, Temporal Island Lord could only acknowledge his words obediently. The Temporal Temple could now only bring in souls of those who had died. The many Reincarnators who had once been forcibly kidnapped would be given the opportunity – to decide if they wanted their freedom! Those who chose to remain a Reincarnator would be greatly rewarded.
Time passed by.
Due to the emergence of a Void God, with an unparalleled existence protecting the entire cosmos, the cosmos became more peaceful. Everyone knew that they could leave when this cosmos epoch ended, resulting in the absence of anxiety and urgency. The Rulers had also formed a closer relationship with one another.
Over the years, Xue Ying brought an avatar of ‘Little Chong Seven’ out and allowed him to cultivate and temper himself in a broader world.
As for his wife Jing Qiu, Dong Bo Yu, Qing Yao, his disciple Mo Chong Yun, his disciple Jia Yun and Chi Qiu Bai, he had sent them to the ‘Devil Mountain Cosmos’. However, they only stayed there for less than a million years. The person who stayed there the longest was Mo Chong Yun who stayed for a total of 980,000 years. Naturally… a million years in the Cultivator Cosmos was more than three billion years in the Devil Mountain Cosmos.
With Xue Ying’s good friend ‘Third Highness’ Jiao Yun Liu’s help, Jing Qiu and the others had gotten the best environment for cultivation, allowing them to study other systems and be guided by the experts of other systems within the Devil Mountain Cosmos.
His daughter, ‘Qing Yao’, finally broke through to become a powerful existence after a total of 900 million years or so!
The other one was his eldest disciple, Mo Chong Yun, who took a total of 300 million years or so to breakthrough to Powerful Existence.
As for the others, they were still stuck in the stage four World Deity realm. Jing Qiu had started cultivating in another Dao path of ‘Hex’. However, she unable to breakthrough for the time being.
Within the Black Fog, in Monarch Dong Bo Residence.
The white-robed Xue Ying was watching the starry sky by himself before a figure appeared by the side–she was Jing Qiu.
“Xue Ying.” Jing Qiu said with a soft tone, “They can’t hold much longer.”
Xue Ying felt his body trembling.
He had tried all methods to help his father, mother, little brother, Uncle Zong and Uncle Tong, to reach the Deity realm. However, there was a limit to the lifespan of Deities. Most would only live for about 100 million years or so. His parents had virtually reached the end of their lifespans a little while ago; however, they had relied on the Eden treasure to control the time flow, waiting for Uncle Zong, Uncle Tong, and his little brother Qing Shi. This was due to them wanting to leave together. At this moment, their moods were quite good, all of them feeling satisfied with their lives.
“Father, mother, Uncle Zong, Uncle Tong, Little Shi…” Xue Ying felt his heart trembling. These few people were the most important things within his heart. However, all of them were about to leave him. This was a parting for eternity! Xue Ying felt his heart growing empty.
This was a day which Xue Ying had feared for a long time.
However, it still came inevitably!
He once thought that he could accept things calmly. However, when the moment arrived, he discovered that he could barely accept it! It felt as if his life was being severed! His heart was being cut! Pain. Agonizing pain.
“Go, let us go over.” Xue Ying said.
