Chapter 802: Reading Through
“That’s me. Is there any reason why you are obstructing me, Dong Bo Xue Ying?” Xue Ying asked.
The violet-robed male chuckled, “I am Ming Yu. I’ve just heard that a new golden-robed senior disciple brother came, which is also why I especially rushed here. Since senior disciple brother is a golden-robed disciple, so why don’t you wear it? In the Great Void Heaven Temple, the golden-robed disciples, the violet-robed disciples, and the inner hall elders would wear robes with color associated with their status. ”
“Oh, that’s right too. I did not pay much notice to it after arriving here at the Great Void Heaven Temple.” Xue Ying casually replied. The white robe he was wearing immediately transformed color, revealing the true appearance of a golden robe.
This was merely due to him previously trying to keep a low profile.
He was not too willing to display his identity as a golden-robed disciple, as it would attract too much attention. However, since he had been asked to do so, it would be better to show it now.
Seeing the golden robe on Xue Ying, the violet-robed disciple could not help but reveal an envious look: “This junior disciple brother has experienced many True God disciple challenges, yet I am always lacking in power and do not have any fate with the top ten. I’ve heard that Senior Disciple Brother Dong Bo Xue Ying, the Punishment Hall Master, and the Swordmaster all originated from the same cosmos. With you being a golden-robed disciple, your combat power must be extraordinary. I wonder if Senior Disciple Brother Dong Bo Xue Ying would like to have a spar with me?”
“Spar?” Xue Ying revealed a grin, “That’s a minor matter. Do we do it now?”
This junior disciple brother was quite polite. Sparring was not too difficult for him. What’s more, he could also experience the standards of the True God disciples from the Great Void Heaven Temple.
The violet-robed disciple continued, “Over at my Great Void Heaven Temple, it is common for those who go on the battle platform for a spar to have a bet. I am willing to stake 10 pieces of Origin World Rocks.”
“10 pieces of Origin World Rocks?” Xue Ying felt a strand of ill will from the other party. Usually, most Void Gods would not have that many treasures. However, this junior disciple brother in front of him was a True God Ruler, yet he was richer than most Void Gods. Xue Ying immediately replied, “Junior disciple brother is truly rich. It’s a pity that I do not have that many Origin World Rocks.”
“Haha, senior disciple brother is a golden-robed disciple, so how can you not have sufficient treasures?” The violet-robed disciple Ming Yu chuckled, “Senior disciple brother should certainly have a Void God weapon. It should be of sufficient value.”
“You want me to stake my Void God weapon?” Xue Ying was calm as he spoke, “This Void God weapon of mine is worth more than 10 Origin World Rocks.”
The violet-robed disciple chuckled, “I know. The Void God weapons golden-robed disciples got are worth usually around 20 to 30 Origin World Rocks. Even though it is higher than what I betted, in our Great Void Heaven Temple… those with greater power will usually put in a greater stake when fighting with those weaker! After all, the probability of me losing in such a battle is much greater.”
“Why, senior disciple brother comes from the same cosmos as Ancestor Devil and Swordmaster. This junior disciple brother, I, have the courage to gamble, yet senior disciple brother does not have the guts to do so?” The violet-robed disciple continued.
Xue Ying looked at this junior disciple brother in front of him.
Being a golden-robed disciple that came from a cosmos, other than the protective treasure Black Gourd, he could not sell other treasures like the defensive talisman he had. His Void God weapon was the only object he had which he could and exchange for a high value. That weapon of his was an upper-grade Void God weapon, with its value being close to 30 pieces of Origin World Rocks.”
On the surface, it was his most valuable treasure! Yet who would have thought that it would be stared at by others just after coming here?
“Junior Disciple Brother Ming Yu.” Xue Ying looked at him, “According to what I know, you are ranked 26th in the previous True God disciple challenge.”
The violet-robed disciple was stunned momentarily before he nodded, “Right. I am still very far away from the top 10.”
“I have also fortuitously become a golden-robed disciple from my hometown cosmos. Competing with junior disciple brother, it is likely for me to lose to you.” Xue Ying shook his head and sighed, “Let’s just drop this matter of sparring.”
“Senior disciple brother, you are a golden-robed disciple and also came from the same cosmos as Ancestor Devil and Swordmaster. You must definitely be amazing. Aren’t you that confident of yourself at the very least?” The violet-robed disciple continued, “If that’s the case, then you are truly looking down on me, and also looking down on other disciples.”
Xue Ying’s expression turned cold.
“Looking down on you?” Xue Ying stared at him with a cold expression, “You are merely using 10 Origin World Rocks to gamble with my piece of upper-grade Void God weapon? I say that you are dreaming! If you want to gamble with me, you better prepare 25 Origin World Rocks at least! At that moment when we have the True God disciple inner challenge, we can also make use of that chance to see who wins the bet.”
“If you are too poor and can’t bring out the 25 Origin World Rocks, then you better make use of this chance to scram further away.” Xue Ying sneered before turning into a stream of light and disappeared. He did not even care about giving this violet-robed disciple a look. That violet-robed disciple also watched as Xue Ying flew away expressionlessly.
“Hahaha, Brother Ming Yu, it seems that this Dong Bo Xue Ying isn’t that easy to deceive.” The other violet-robed disciples came flying over from afar.
“I assumed that he will be overconfident and arrogant and would be dying to compete with me.” Ming Yu lightly shook his head, “It seems that he is very vigilant.”
“Let’s not talk about this Senior Disciple Brother Dong Bo Xue Ying anymore. Can’t you just take out 25 Origin World Rocks to compete with him? Is there a problem with that? Is Senior Disciple Brother Ming Yu not confident about defeating him?”
“Unless Disciple Brother Ming Yu can’t take out 25 Origin World Rocks? How many are you lacking? I can lend you, though it will be a loan.”
These violet-robed disciples were saying.
“Oh, I guess if you all go and challenge Dong Bo Xue Ying, he should likely agree to it.” Ming Yu indifferently said, “You all can prepare the 25 Origin World Rocks. By then during the ranking battle, you can definitely challenge Dong Bo Xue Ying then. As for me, there is no point.”
“Whoosh.” Ming Yu flew away after saying that.
The other violet-robed disciples were started sneering after seeing it.
“What a pity. We’ve failed to receive this golden-robed disciple that comes from the cosmos.”
“This Ming Yu is still so cunning.”
These violet-robed disciples were speaking casually.
“Fellow gentlemen, who here dares to challenge him?”
“He is someone who came from the same cosmos as Ancestor Devil and Swordmaster. I might still be confident if I had engaged in a duel with him now. However, it’s a pity that he wants to delay until the ranking battle… everyone knows that Swordmaster and Ancestor Devil have become extremely powerful after reading through the many books in the Myriad Elephant Palace Hall. They were able to correct their weaknesses of being inexperienced, while Swordmaster was even able to break through to the final realm after entering closed-door cultivation. This Dong Bo Xue Ying might have very few experiences towards the laws and profound mysteries, but now that he will be entering the Myriad Elephant Palace Hall to read, he will rapidly make up for his weaknesses. During the ranking battle itself, it is likely that he will become much more powerful! Who knows if he might even get into the top 20! I am not confident of fighting this kind of expert.”
“Mn, I’m afraid that he would be able to improve greatly after doing so.”
These violet-robed disciples came from different places.
Some came from the Primogenitor Island, while some were sent over from the Jade Light Sacred Territory. Some had even undergone many selections in the sacred world before finally getting the opportunity to enter the Great Void Heaven Temple. The competition outside the Great Void Heaven Temple was especially intense because the Great Void Heaven Temple believed in quality and elites, with no care about quantity at all.
After all, just sending an incarnation of a single palace hall master was more than sufficient to slaughter large amounts of Void Gods.
Thus, those who could become violet-robed disciples and enter here were all extraordinary, with all of them being cunning and astute.
Even though they disdained upon this brat who came from within a cosmos, it was merely caused by the reason they were born from, with them hailing from the sacred worlds,. Even Ancestor Devil and Xue Ying loved their own hometown cosmos and were protective of it! Nevertheless, these violet-robed disciples did not dare to underestimate the potential of Xue Ying.
Right now if they were to compete, there were quite a few violet-robed disciples would dare to do so!
However, if it was delayed to the True God disciple ranking battle, they were no longer confident. After all, ‘Ancestor Devil’, ‘Swordmaster’ and Xue Ying all passed through the golden-robed disciple trial when they were back at their cosmos. In the end, due to his great potential, at the moment when he corrects the lack of experience, he would definitely improve drastically.
Xue Ying flew towards the central floating great land and towards the ‘Myriad Elephant Palace Hall’.
“Mn?” Xue Ying could not help but be attracted to a tall pagoda behind the Myriad Elephant Palace Hall. This pagoda was constructed there. It was majestic, and its height could almost match that of the Great Void Palace Hall.
‘Star Pagoda.’ Xue Ying thought.
The introduction given to it as referenced from the information provided by Great Void Heaven Temple was quite brief. Instead, it was more detailed in the information given by the Voidwalker Gu Qi.
There were six Star Pagodas in total.
They were respectively located in the Great Void Heaven Temple, Primogenitor Island, Jade Light Sacred Territory, Void God Temple, Blade Emperor’s ‘Blade Emperor City and Luo City Lord’s ‘Stars City’.
Which meant that there were three holy grounds within Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World and three holy grounds within Eastern Unicorn Sacred World.
These six Star Pagodas were also personally refined and gifted by Luo City Lord. From this, one could see that the relationship between Eastern Unicorn Sacred World and Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World was relatively good.
“Let’s go to the Myriad Elephant Palace Hall.” Xue Ying did not think much and flew directly to the Myriad Elephant Palace Hall.
The Myriad Elephant Palace Hall was completely made of wood and occupied a very big area. It wasn’t considered tall, standing at only about 20% the height of the Star Pagoda and the Great Void Palace Hall.
There was a black cat currently lying at the front door of the Myriad Elephant Palace Hall.
‘A black cat? According to the information, this should be a puppet lifeform at the Primal Chaos realm and not any weaker than the black wild dog back in my hometown.’ Xue Ying thought. Forefather Tian Yu’s refining skill must be absolutely wondrous to refine a puppet lifeform with the power of the primal chaos realm. The value of these puppet lifeforms was extremely high and far beyond that of the Black Gourd and even a cosmos.
Thus, to leave behind a black wild dog back in his hometown cosmos as a protector meant that Forefather Tian Yu must be extremely wealthy. During that time, the dog had completely hoodwinked Gu Qian Luo.
“Meow~” The black cat gave Xue Ying a look, before speaking out with a gentle voice, “Brat, don’t go to the fourth floor. You can casually read in the first three levels.”
“Yes, senior.” Xue Ying acknowledged with a smile.
The black cat soon went back to sleep lazily. Xue Ying instead entered the Myriad Elephant Palace Hall.
The Myriad Elephant Palace Hall was really vast and huge.
There were many books placed within. All of the books here very precious, and god knows how many more are there here as compared to the Devil Mountain Cosmos! After all, this was the core of a holy ground. The Great Void Heaven Temple had placed its collection of books over the years here.
Xue Ying was filled with desire. He understood that the best teacher in the Great Void Heaven Temple were the many books within the ‘Myriad Elephant Palace Hall’. Many books were very expensive, and some only had a single book! For instance, after the fall of the primogenitor for the laws and profound mysteries system, he left behind several lone books.
Calming himself, Xue Ying soon found a book detailing the types of Mirages. He immediately picked it up and started reading…
