Chapter 823: Escaping without Trace
The black-robed male and his subordinates were looking in panic as more than a thousand violet fishes came towards them. “Shua shua shua”, it was like arrows arcing through the sky; it happened too fast. Even though those fishes had not reached them, these subordinates could feel their souls trembling. The gap in level was truly too big.
These fishes could kill Unity realm experts like cutting melons and vegetables, much less them.
All of them were in despair. The voluminous violet fishes passed through their bodies with sounds of ‘shua shua shua’. Imbued with the profound mysteries of Dao of Slaughter, those fishes easily destroyed their bodies. It was practically a single strike kill, and other than the black-robed male and the mutated beast in his embrace, the other subordinates had been exterminated into nothingness, leaving behind their weapons and some treasures.
The black-robed male could not help but feel the chill down his spine. He was so frightened that he immediately teleported: “He is just an Origin Birth realm Void God yet he is so strong?”
As he teleported, more than 100 violet fishes also immediately pursued after him via the void. “Pu pu pu pu”… The black-robed male did not have the time to dodge. As he teleported through the void, those violet fishes bombarded on his body, though a faint black layer appeared on him which stopped the incoming attacks.
The black-robed male could feel those violet fishes continuously bombarding outside his protective god light; he could not help but feel terror.
‘Fortunately, fortunately, elder brother gave me this protective treasure. Otherwise, I would have died previously.’ The face of that black-robed male was filled with ugliness. He appeared from the void, staring at the distant Xue Ying.
“Oh? He did not actually die?” The white-robed Xue Ying looked from afar. He was slightly shocked.
“Go, kill him!” The black-robed male threw out the mutated beast in his embrace. He was filled with savageness. His eyes were full of indignance. He had actually almost died!
After that mutated beast flew out, it let out an ear-piercing sound of ‘gu’. Its eyes were staring at Xue Ying, and one could see many strands of thunder clapping in the surrounding void. The power of these thunder had turned the hearts of Deacon Jiu Qi and the other experts cold. For it to display such power under the law suppression of the sacred world, this mutated beast was terrifying even amongst Unity realm experts.
And the white-robed Xue Ying was calmly watching these.
The mutated beast had a smooth body of black fur. Its four hooves suddenly stepped on the void and disappeared as it charged over.
Xue Ying lightly commanded.
“Chi chi chi~”
Countless delicate strand ripples which the naked eyes could see tunneled into the void. At the same time, the dense violet fishes also disappeared into the void. At that moment, a mutated beast appeared from the void. It was being entangled by countless translucent thin ripple strands. Simultaneously, the dense violet fishes were frenziedly tunneling into its body; they were destroying its body. It tried its best to struggle out, causing many of the thin ripple strands to be destroyed. Nevertheless, more thin ripple strands were restricting it, preventing it from exerting its full strength against the incoming Termination Energy fishes. This resulted in more Termination Energy fishes tunneling into its body.
Under the group attack of more than a thousand violet fish, its struggle became weaker and weaker before it eventually stopped moving.
It had already turned into nothingness, leaving behind just a storage ring and several other remnant treasures.
‘Such a formidable mutated beast. It should be at the peak of the Unity realm.’ Xue Ying thought, ‘If I had not cultivated the “Plate Ripple Diagram”, I can defeat it only after engaging in close combat.’
The Plate Ripple Diagram was a cosmos ranked absolute art belonging to the Dao of Ripple.
It was unquestionably the strongest art in terms of domain aspect within Great Void Heaven Temple! Being the strongest domain absolute art added with Xue Ying’s ‘Fish Dragon Kill’ that he used to get through the third level of Star Pagoda, they were able to create a miraculous effect. And that peak Unity mutated beast had died just like that.
“Too terrifying. So this is Elder Dong Bo’s combat power?” Deacon Jiu Qi and the other deacons were all looking as the countless violet fishes tunneled into the mutated beast and causing it to disintegrate. They were able to determine the power of that mutated beast. When that mutated beast erupted with its strength, they felt a dense threat. And they knew that the strongest expert in this group of people from the Ancient Sacred Religion was that mutated beast.
But in the end?
Elder Dong Bo stood there without moving. He easily snuffed his enemy.
“Even if he were at the Origin Birth realm, Elder Dong Bo is still an Inner Hall Elder. It’ll likely be easy for him to kill us in a single breath of time.” Deacon Jiu Qi and the others were startled and admirable at the same time. Cultivators respected the strongest.
Amidst the ruins, within the many cages, the cultivators who were caged up were filled with resentment towards the Ancient Sacred Religion. But they knew that the group of experts from the Ancient Sacred Religion was very strong. Nevertheless, that white-robed young man who did not seem strong from his aura had actually pointed out, causing many fishes to engulf…
And all the experts from the Ancient Sacred Religion were killed.
Even that mutated beast which appeared after that–even though it seemed more terrifying than the Golden Wing Nation King–it was easily snuffed by that white-robed teenager.
This unfathomable strength made them sigh and excite. It was too overwhelming!
“No!” The black-robed male was stunned after seeing this.
This mutated beast had been sent by his elder brother to follow him. It might seem like a pet, but it was meant to protect him! Its strength was definitely at the peak of the Unity realm, and ordinary Unity realm experts would easily be devoured by this mutated beast with just a gulp. Of everyone he knew across the entire Celestial Water City, there was only ‘Elder Chun Wu’ who could easily kill this mutated beast.
When ‘Elder Qian Yu’ personally acted, the mutated beast was able to resist one or two moves.
But this white-robed teenager in front of their eyes was so terrifying despite being at the Origin Birth realm?
“He, he is an Inner Hall Elder of the Great Void Heaven Temple.” The black-robed male was able to make his guesses. Being so terrifying despite being an Origin Birth realm, he must definitely be an Inner Hall Elder!
Saying it was slow.
But it was a flash across the mind of the black-robed male. He then roared out, “Who are you?”
The white-robed Xue Ying looked at that black-robed male, seeing the black light on the surface of his body, “You should have some sort of protective talisman or item. But the moment its energy is depleted, it will no longer be able to protect you any longer.” With a thought, the dense amount of fishes went assaulting the black-robed male.
The black-robed male gritted his teeth after seeing this. He gave Xue Ying a brutal look.
A terrifying spatial ripple swept him along.
As that black-robed male teleported away, he was still filled with hatred as he glared at Xue Ying.
“Disappeared?” Xue Ying frowned. This spatial ripple had utterly disappeared. Furthermore, the location it vanished to was exceptionally distant. It far surpassed the region he could sense.
‘I actually let the biggest fish escape.’ Xue Ying was able to guess that being able to lead so many subordinates, this black-robed male should be at least a ‘Sacred Emissary’ of the Ancient Sacred Religion. But now, he actually escaped?
‘He has protective treasures, and also an escaping treasure. This isn’t an ordinary sacred emissary.’ Xue Ying felt slightly irritated. Killing a sacred emissary meant he would get some ‘contribution points’ as a reward. The higher the status of the sacred emissary, the higher the reward! Regardless of whether it was to exchange for treasures meant to aid in cultivation or to cultivate in the Palace Hall of Time, Xue Ying required a large number of contribution points.
But it’s a pity that he led a sacred emissary escape.
Nonetheless, he had no choice. His ‘Fish Dragon Kill’ could not even damage that protective god light of the other party, and the other party had escaped beyond his senses. This sort of sacred emissary should have high status with extremely formidable methods of surviving. Thus, killing him would be extremely tough.
“Hu.” Xue Ying descended. He waved his hand before keeping the treasures left behind by those dead Void Gods. At the same time, he turned around and ordered, “Deacon Jiu Qi, protect this place well. Forbid anyone from entering the ruined region. Wait until I am back for a thorough investigation.”
“Yes.” Deacon Jiu Qi respectfully acknowledged.
He knew that this was a matter that concerned the Ancient Sacred Religion and did not dare to be careless.
Xue Ying then looked towards the two other directions. The battles over at the other two places had not ended, though, though his side had already practically won the battle in one of the locations. Xue Ying’s figure flashed and he tunneled through the void.
