Chapter 821: Believing in the Ancient Sacred Religion
After his three subordinates withdrew, this courtyard was left with that violet-haired black-robed male sitting by himself. He was gently caressing the hair of the mutated beast in his embrace. This mutated beast was enjoying with its eyes closed.
“They must be panicking. The more they panic, the better it’ll be.” The violet-haired black-robed male muttered, “Either die amidst the panic or become a member of the Ancient Sacred Religion. It is your fortune to be qualified in becoming a follower of the magnificent Sacred Master.”
He did not put the Golden Wing Nation King in his eyes.
Currently, the strength their side had was utterly beyond that of the Golden Wing Nation King. If they wanted to devour the entire Golden Wing Nation, there would not be a single person alive now! But they did not do so for the sake of devouring. Instead, they were doing so to recruit more members into the Ancient Sacred Religion.
A black figure suddenly appeared by the side of many residences along the street. It let out screeching laughter, and closely following that, a horrifying devouring force enveloped the residences beneath him. One could see the many residences and cultivators in the enveloped region drifting over towards that black figure.
“It’s a demon!”
“It’s a big devouring demon!”
Many living beings in these five residences were panicking. They were already living in anxiety these days–afraid that they would be devoured by a demon the next day. Still, they consoled themselves, thinking that the Golden Wing Nation City was five million kilometers long, and under the law suppression of the sacred world, a big demon could only devour a small region. The people felt they should not be so unfortunate.
But this nightmare eventually descended regardless.
Mournful voices spread, causing many others to panic. Many had long reported upwards to the Golden Wing Nation royal family, but in a few breaths of time, the black figure in midair had disappeared and left stealthily.
After a while, when two protector elders reached the location, they only saw that the aftermath of that region–with the tiles and bricks devoured, and the civilians in panic.
“He escaped really fast.” The two protector elders gritted their teeth in anger.
A group of demons was hiding across the Golden Wing Nation, sneaking attacks time after time. They would devour a small region every time before leaving! Cultivators were being devoured every moment, resulting in general anxiety across the civilians. Nevertheless, none dared to escape the Golden Wing Nation because the moment they did so, they would die even faster without the protection of the king.
And at this moment, a mysterious religion was also spreading.
As long as they believed in the Ancient Sacred Religion, they would receive their protection! These demons did not dare to offend the Ancient Sacred Religion.
The peak level of the Golden Wing Nation, the ‘True God Rulers’, was being converted. Some who were more obstinate had been directly captured away. They had to believe in the Ancient Sacred Religion. Those who did not convert their belief would die.
In an area containing many cages.
Every single cage was locked with a cultivator. The lowest was at the True God Ruler, and there were even two Void Gods being locked.
“Weng weng~” The surface of the cage diffused black light. Many secretive veins were moving on the cage. An unseen wave was continuously tunneling into the mind of the locked cultivators.
“Ah ah ah.” Those cultivators who were locked felt agony. They were struggling.
Some who had been painfully struggling, gradually reveal a cheerful look. They opened their eyes with a smile, and there was a slight fervor in their eyes. There was even a black deity imprint appearing indistinctly on their forehead.
“We have another brother. Let him out.” The guard by the side immediately let those with a black deity imprint on the forehead of those people.
‘What exactly is this religion? Why is it so frightening that even Rulers are forced to serve their allegiance?’ In one of the cages, there was a muscular male gritting his teeth as he held on. Unseen wave was continuously tunneling into his soul, making him feel unbearable. It felt like a black vortex devouring his soul. As long as he did not resist, his soul would sink into oblivion, and he would be free of the pain.
Was it easy for them to fall into oblivion after cultivating to become a Ruler?
‘No.’ This muscular man was holding on.
‘This Ancient Sacred Religion is too strong. They have some secret techniques which can follow and connect to our souls, extinguishing other avatars of ours.’ The more this muscular male thought, the more depressed he got. He was originally a genius in the Golden Wing Nation–he was able to become a Ruler after cultivating for a short period. He had planned to leave for the Celestial Water City with his wife in hopes of entering the Great Void Heaven Temple.
Who would have thought that they would meet this terrifying Ancient Sacred Religion before they even left?
‘I wonder how Qing Ruo is right now. She is more intelligent than me, and she shouldn’t be so unlucky to be captured right?’ The muscular man thought. He continued holding on while gritting his teeth. Clearly, his cultivation heart was much stronger than the other Rulers around him–he was able to withstand further.
Xue Ying brought along the two Outer Hall Elders and the group of Outer Hall Deacons as they traveled through the void at high speed.
“We are reaching soon.” Xue Ying transmitted and ordered, “Prepare yourselves.”
All of them acknowledged. This time, it was an Inner Hall Elder leading them and they did not dare to be lackadaisical.
They finally arrived within the Golden Wing Nation City. Very soon, Xue Ying and the group of people arrived above the Golden Wing Nation Royal Palace. There was a total of 33 of them, and all were Void Gods. Of which, there were two Unity realm experts. When their aura was released at this important ground of the royal palace, the Golden Wing Nation King immediately discovered them. He was elated.
“Sou.” The Golden Wing Nation King brought along the three protector elders and flew into the sky. He was extremely respectful, “Greetings, emissaries.”
He was slightly curious.
He could determine from their clothes that 30 of them who came were deacons, and two were Outer Hall Elders. What about the white-robed young man leading them?
“Activate the Golden Wing Nation protective array. Forbid anyone from leaving from now onwards. Inform me the moment anybody rushes out.” Xue Ying ordered.
“Yes.” The Golden Wing Nation King acknowledged respectfully.
“How you handled those demons in the past will be how you handle them now. Go.” Xue Ying ordered.
The two Outer Hall Elders and 30 Outer Hall Deacons immediately went to do their tasks.
Closely following that, they divided themselves into four teams. Each team was either led by an Outer Hall Elder or a Unity realm Deacon. They swiftly rushed out in different directions seeking for traces of the enemies.
‘What identity does this white-robed teenager has that all of them are listening to his orders?’ The Golden Wing Nation King thought.
Xue Ying stood above the royal palace without caring about the Golden Wing Nation King. Instead, he unleashed his cosmos ranked absolute art, the “Plate Ripple Diagram”. Having cultivated it for close to two billion years in the Palace Hall of Time, his attainment in the “Plate Ripple Diagram” was not any weaker than that of the “13 Apocalyptic Swords”.
Unseen ripples began spreading out with Xue Ying at the center.
It was extremely difficult to scout in the sacred world, especially when the more cunning enemies would conceal their aura. Thus, most simple scouting methods were deemed useless. Most ordinary methods depended on the ‘law domain’. Under the suppression of the sacred world… Unity realm experts could only cover at most 5,000 kilometers with their law domains. Even Primal Chaos realm giants could cover up to 500,000 kilometers with their law domains at most.
This was their ordinary region of scouting. Unless they knew some very formidable scouting techniques! And the cosmos ranked absolute art “Plate Ripple Diagram” was the only cosmos ranked absolute art belonging to the Dao of Ripple which the Great Void Heaven Temple had. It was unquestionably the best technique the Great Void Heaven Temple had for scouting.
“What is he doing?” The Golden Wing Nation King felt puzzled. He did not even discover the scouting method of Xue Ying.
The unseen ripples were practically one entity with the ordinary ripples. The ripples were stealthily being sent out to scout for enemies, and in an instant, it had covered an area of close to 250,000 kilometers. This was also his current limit.
The white-robed Xue Ying stood there. He was investigating every single aura across the region of 250,000 kilometers in range. Those who thought they could hide from the “Plate Ripple Diagram” must be dreaming.
