Chapter 826: Revealed
Xue Ying knew that the Ancient Sacred Religion had a total of 90 bases within the Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World. The Great Void Heaven Temple occupied one-third the entire Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World. Based on this calculation, the Ancient Sacred Religion had roughly about 30 bases within the territory under the Great Void Heaven Temple. These bases were usually equally essential and had direct connections with Ancient Sacred World.
Often, members of a base would have practically no knowledge of the other bases.
That was why the uncovering of one base would not cause the destruction and revealing of other bases. But given that there were only 30 bases in the territory of Great Void Heaven Temple, the discovery and eradication of one base was still counted as a great contribution!
Xue Ying looked at Lei Chen beside him: ‘It was all due to him and his soul connection with his wife that enabled us to locate their base.’
“Elder Dong Bo, please help me save my wife. I can feel that the soul of my wife is still sealed. Thus, it is unlikely for her to have pledge her allegiance to the religion.” Lei Chen requested.
Xue Ying agreed. Since the black-robed Sacred Emissary was still on the run, he would not have the time to forcefully control his prisoner.
“We will be acting soon. It is best if you stay inside my Eden treasure.” As Xue Ying spoke, he waved his hand and collected Lei Chen. Lei Chen did not resist and obediently entered the Eden treasure. At this moment, he could only wait and hope for Elder Dong Bo to save his wife. He was ultimately too weak, and all he could do was to point out the direction.
After Xue Ying collected Lei Chen into his Eden treasure, he turned back at the black city.
Inside the black city, in a dark hall, a man and a woman were sitting opposite each other. They were not ordinary humans. The cold male was covered in a layer of frost armor, and his face was covered with white scales. The woman had six arms and was enchanting in nature. Both of their auras permeated and enveloped the entire hall.
“Sacred Emissary Chi Yun will arrive shortly.” The cold male was holding a wine glass with amber colored wine inside. The aroma from the wind had long diffused to the surrounding.
“This time, Sacred Emissary Chi Yun is really miserable.” The eyes of the six-armed enchantress contained a flow of lightning, “He painstakingly led his subordinates to spread the religion. His elder brother also lent him a beast to help him. Over this long period, he had contributed greatly, allowing him to quickly rise and become a Sacred Emissary. It’s a pity that he met with such a setback this time that caused him almost all of his subordinates! It was fine even if the mutated beast died since it did not belong to him originally, but to lose so many followers who were groomed according to the religious standard would cost him greatly. His contribution this time will surely be reduced to compensate that. In the end, it might just result in the loss of his current position. Perhaps he might need more time and help from his brother if he wanted to become a High Sacred Emissary again.”
“Don’t be such a schadenfreude. He is ultimately still the little brother of Saint Wang Ming.” The cold male warned.
“Hmph hmph.” The six-armed enchantress giggled.
The rules of the Ancient Sacred Religion were stringent.
If one wanted to become a High Sacred Emissary, he would have to be at the peak of the Unity realm! It was also possible for the cultivator to become one by contributing enough to the religion!
Though the black-robed man was weak, he had the help of his elder brother. Adding several capable subordinates, he was able to contribute plenty to the religion, allowing him to be just a step away from becoming a High Sacred Emissary. Furthermore, with the help of his elder brother, he would be able to secure many benefits and obtain a greater power after he became a High Sacred Emissary.
Though they felt envious, the cold male and the six-armed enchantress could only watch as things happened. They did not dare to scheme against him. They could only watch with their eyes open as the black-robed man continued piling up more contribution for the religion. Now that the other party had met with such a setback, they couldn’t help but feel happy in their hearts.
But they could be delighted inwardly.
They did not dare to show it openly.
Saint Wang Ming… why was he a Saint? In the Ancient Sacred Religion, only those who could transcend realms and fight against Primal Chaos experts as a Unity realm expert were entitled to be called a Saint. Using the Star Pagoda as a form of standard, one would require to pass the sixth level of Star Pagoda before they could be called a saint! But this was very difficult since there were no Unity realm experts even in the Great Void Heaven Temple–well-known for having experts that could fight against those on a higher realm–who had actually crossed through the sixth level Star Pagoda.
But for a Unity realm expert to compete even against the weakest primal Chaos giant was something unfathomable.
A figure flew out from afar into the hall. It was precisely the black-robed man they were talking about. This made their expression unsightly. The cold male and the six-armed woman quickly got up to welcome him.
“Brother Chi Yun.” The cold male said with a pained expression on his white-scaled face, “How could you be so unlucky? You are just so close to becoming a High Sacred Emissary, yet all these happened.”
The six-armed woman chirped in, “Brother Chi Yun, don’t be so anxious. Although you have suffered a great loss this time, losing much of your contribution to the religion, we should take it easy. This sister will definitely do my best to help you.”
Although the two of them were grinning at the misfortune of the other party, they had to wholeheartedly assist this black-robed man at this current moment.
“Damn that Elder Dong Bo.” The black-robed man directly sat down. He took the flask beside him and started drinking. After thoroughly venting his feelings by drinking, he forcefully placed the flask down. With a ‘peng’, the flask smashed on the table. He gritted his teeth, “It is all because of this Elder Dong Bo that destroyed my affair. I have just started my operation a month in when he actually arrived!”
The cold male who sat nearby added, “I have already investigated this matter. Inside our internal system, this Elder Dong Bo is also called Dong Bo Xue Ying! It is said that he is an unparalleled talent, and has originated from a certain cosmos in the primal chaos void. He was able to become a golden-robed disciple of the Great Void Heaven Temple when he was still in the cosmos. The report also mentioned that both Ancestor Devil and Swordmaster originated from the same cosmos.”
“Ancestor Devil, SwordMaster?” The black-robed man snorted inwardly.
Ancestor Devil was a hall master of the Great Void Heaven Temple.
Swordmaster… was even a final realm existence.
“Furthermore, it has not been 100 million years since he arrived at the Great Void Heaven Temple before he was able to become a Void God and passed through the third level of the Star Pagoda, becoming an Inner Hall Elder as a result.” The cold male said helplessly, “As an Origin Birth realm Inner Hall Elder, the Great Void Heaven Temple will definitely treasure him! This is also the territory of the Great Void Heaven Temple, and it is impossible for us to defeat him. During crucial moments, Forefather Tian Yu and Swordmaster, these two final realm existences could simply send their incarnations down.”
The black-robed male was becoming even more frustrated. He knew that given his strength, it was impossible for him to confront Xue Ying. Even the people behind his back could not compete with those behind Xue Ying.
Although the Ancient Sacred Religion was strong, this as ultimately the territory belonging to the Great Void Heaven Temple. They could only develop secretly under the surface without being able to confront openly.
Flustered and angered, there was nothing he could do but to endure and keep his indignance within himself!
‘Let us wait and see. There will be a day…’ The black-robed man silently vowed. Although he was howling and shouting deep in his heart, he could not express it since it would incur the ridicule of his companions. Even he knew that the chances of his revenge succeeding were almost zilch.
“Brother Chi Yun, just rest and take it easy. The matter regarding spreading religion isn’t urgent at all.” The cold male said.
That black-robed male nodded.
He also needed to contact his elder brother. Since the mutated beast died, he had no other capable subordinates. If he only relied on those sacred disciples… it would be hard for him to progress quickly. Only when he had an adequate and powerful expert could the speed of conducting his mission of spreading religion be much faster.
“Come, accompany me to a drink.” The black-robed Chi Yun said.
“Here, this sister has plenty of good wine.” The two of them were clearly the two highest existences in this base–High Sacred Emissaries–but they had to remain polite in front of this lower-ranked Sacred Emissary; they did not dare to offend him at all.
They had only started drinking for a short moment. when the expression of the six-armed woman changed. She transmitted, “Be careful, the warning array has detected a Void God and a True God Ruler outside the city. They are currently watching over this city in the dark. Oh, that True God Ruler had gone into the Eden treasure of that Void God. Judging from his appearance… he should be Elder Dong Bo whom we previously investigated.”
“Elder Dong Bo? That Origin Birth Realm Inner Hall Elder?” The expression of the cold male changed, though there was killing intent which abruptly burst forth from his eyes.
Although Xue Ying remained highly vigilant, he had too little interactions with the Ancient Sacred Religion. This was ultimately the strongest superpower across the five great sacred worlds! The Sacred Master was someone who was enemy with practically almost all other final realm existences! During the moment he arrived, the warning array of this black city had already detected him.
