Chapter 830: The Reunion within the City
Within the Eden treasure.
There were dozens of cages locked with cultivators inside. More than half of them were True God Rulers, while the rest were Void Gods. They were people whom the black-robed Sacred Emissary Chi Yun feel that their talents were high enough and could not be controlled using the cage. Thus, they were temporarily placed by his side as he planned to bring them back to the underground sacred palace hall to control them.
Instead, this time as he was escaping back to the base miserably, Xue Ying suddenly assaulted the base! Eventually, the black-robed Sacred Emissary Chi Yun died…
He was only thinking of teleporting the Sacred Master sculpture hastily, and then he was facing the despair of death; he had forgotten entirely about the cultivators caged within his Eden treasure. In his heart, those were just ants, and he had brought them deliberately for the sake of earning some contribution points.
“Fortunately, they are still alive.” Xue Ying let out a breath of relief after refining this Eden treasure and sending his consciousness in.
“Qing Ruo is alive too.”
Because of that muscular man Lei Chen, Xue Ying deliberately collected intelligence regarding the other party’s wife. Hence, he knew how she looked like and could instantly recognize Qing Ruo amongst the caged cultivators.
“Ka ka ka~” Xue Ying’s energy entered and unlocked the cages. The cultivators whose souls were sealed had been released as well.
“What is happening?”
“Why are we being let out?”
These cultivators were slightly stunned.
The Ancient Sacred Religion was always vigilant. It was impossible for them to release the seal on their souls because the moment they did so, these cultivators could suicide at any time. And now, they actually took the initiative to release their soul seals? This made the cultivators guess that it was possible that they were being saved.
“I’ll be bringing everyone over to the Celestial Water City in a while. By then, everyone will be regaining your freedom.” Xue Ying’s voice reverberated in the Eden treasure.
“We are being saved!”
“Celestial Water City? It must be a special emissary from the Celestial Water City.”
All of them were extremely excited and joyful.
These cultivators who lived in the sacred world had long known of how terrifying the ‘Ancient Sacred Religion’ and the ‘Ancestor Mother Religion’ were. The moment they were controlled, they would remain loyal for eternal. Being a cultivator who reached their current standards as a True God Ruler or a Void God, they naturally had great talents. As such, they would rather persevere on and were not willing to lose themselves.
And now, they were finally saved!
“Hu.” Amidst the excited fervor of the cultivators, Qing Ruo had disappeared. She was directly teleported out.
Qing Ruo only felt her surroundings changed before discovering that she had appeared in a slightly broken-looking black city.
A white-robed young man was standing by the side.
‘Who is he?’ Qing Ruo felt suspicious.
The white-robed Xue Ying stood by the side. He waved his hand before releasing Lei Chen.
The muscular man Lei Chen had always been anxious. He was afraid that the Great Void Heaven Temple Elder Dong Bo could not destroy this place! He was also fearful that his wife might have been affected by the shockwaves during the battle and die. Regardless, Lei Chen was in emotional turmoil previously, but now that Xue Ying released him, and he had seen that green-robed girl in front of him, he felt tremble in his soul.
“Qing Ruo!” Lei Chen rushed over excitedly.
“Ah Chen!” Qing Ruo was excited too.
The two had always been together since young. They had climbed up together step by step, going on adventures and experienced many dangers together. They even also experienced similar miraculous encounters and had long become the most important person for each other–more so than their own lives.
The two could not help but rush towards each other. They hugged.
Not far away, Xue Ying revealed a grin as he saw this.
Even though the sacred followers within the city had already been annihilated, he had at least saved several people including this couple. Watching this couple embracing each other… Xue Ying could not help but think of his wife back at his hometown cosmos.
‘Jing Qiu, are you, Yu’er and Qing Yao still doing well? Rest assured, I’ll bring back the best cultivation treasures back for you all.’ Xue Ying thought to himself. He was already an Inner Hall Elder currently, and he felt confident for the future.
He would definitely become stronger on this path of cultivation! None could obstruct his path!
Only those who were strong enough could obtain more precious materials. Once he was strong enough, Xue Ying could definitely bring such materials to his wife.
Xue Ying flipped his hand and brought out a communication talisman. He directly contacted the other party: “Ancestor Devil, this is Dong Bo Xue Ying.”
“What’s the matter?” Ancestor Devil replied.
“I’ve assaulted an important base of the Ancient Sacred Religion.” Xue Ying answered, “This is the location.” He directly transmitted the location on the map over.
“An important base of the Ancient Sacred Religion? Is it a base with the Sacred Master sculpture or just an ordinary gathering point?” Ancestor Devil asked. There were only a total of 90 major bases across the entire Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World, and now, Xue Ying was saying that he actually got rid of one of it? According to what he knew, the array protecting the base was relatively formidable, and with Xue Ying’s current power, he could actually assault and destroy it? That made Ancestor Devil suspect that this was merely a minor gathering point.
“I’ve already gotten the Sacred Master sculpture.” Xue Ying said.
“Alright. I’ll come over now.”
Ancestor Devil no longer suspected Xue Ying. It was impossible for the Sacred Master sculpture to be forged.
Xue Ying kept his communication talisman.
Watching this quiet black city, the eastern end of this city had already turned marble white as the sky started brightening.
“Hong long long~”
Soon, a terrifying willpower came down directly in the distant sky. It began controlling the surrounding World Energy. This surging World Energy eventually condensed into a colossal maelstrom. Such a huge disturbance had prompted both the joyous Lei Chen and his wife Qing Ruo to look up in the distant. That maelstrom was too prominent, and its power was horrifying.
“Elder Dong Bo.” Lei Chen pulled his wife Qing Ruo over. He was slightly guilty, “Thank you Elder Dong Bo for saving my wife and me. This gratitude is something the two of us will never forget in our life.”
“Thank you Elder Dong Bo for saving us.” Qing Ruo showed her gratitude too.
Xue Ying chuckled as he replied to this couple, “It is just a small thing. Saying that, I do have to thank Lei Chen for leading me over here.”
The Ancient Sacred Religion was extremely careful.
Finding a base was difficult. Fortunately, Lei Chen was able to sense the soul of his wife. Such a technique was too mystical that it was likely even Sacred Emissary Chi Yun would never have thought that it could exist! That was why Xue Ying could follow him in the dark.
“That is…” Lei Chen and Qing Ruo were both looking at the maelstrom with astonishment. They did not dare ask further.
Xue Ying looked over.
The maelstrom was rapidly condensing and turning into a black luxurious-robed handsome male. He had long blood hair, and his eyes swept across the surrounding, causing both Lei Chen and Qing Ruo to look down with their spirits trembling.
Nevertheless, Xue Ying in his white robe flew over to welcome him.
“Ancestor Devil.” Xue Ying said.
Because they were within the territory of Great Void Heaven Temple, any Primal Chaos realm giant could send their incarnations over. But the incarnation had to be condensed from the World Energy, and that would create a relatively great disturbance! The process of descending took some time as well, which was why every city had to have a Primal Chaos realm giant incarnation stationed for long periods.
By stationing there, they could immediately react to any emergencies.
And descending from an ultra-far distance required the gathering of World Energy to condense an incarnation. That would take some time. To true experts, this short period sufficed for them to kill everyone and escape.
Thus, being an Inner Hall Elder, Xue Ying also had a talisman meant for protecting himself. During critical moments, he had to survive first before asking for help!
And the incarnations of Forefather Tian Yu and Swordmaster could descend too. Their speed of descending was comparatively faster.
This was also why… the Ancient Sacred Religion could only hide in the dark without daring to fight in the light within the territory of the Great Void Heaven Temple.
“Quite powerful eh.” Ancestor Devil looked at Xue Ying. The edge of his lip moved upwards, “You actually destroyed an important base of the Ancient Sacred Religion?”
“It’s just luck.” Xue Ying answered. He waved his hand before taking out the Sacred Master sculpture.
“This is the Sacred Master sculpture. It is harder to destroy.” Xue Ying said.
Ancestor Devil saw the caving in of the chest of the Sacred Master. He could not help but be astonished and stared at Xue Ying. It seemed that this brat from his old hometown still had some hidden techniques! Otherwise, how could he break into this base and even damage the Sacred Master sculpture?
“If only we could sell the Sacred Master sculpture to the Ancient Sacred World, it would be a huge gain for us. What a pity we can’t sell it.” Ancestor Devil said, “We must bring it back and destroy it. Its degree of firmness is comparable to middle-grade Void God weapons, and destroying it isn’t easy. At least this incarnation of mine can’t do so.”
Ancestor Devil then turned to both Lei Chen and Qing Ruo within the black city.
“Ask them over. I’ll destroy this city.” Ancestor Devil said.
Xue Ying nodded.
He then directly flew over and asked: “Lei Chen, do the two of you want to return to the Golden Wing Nation or come with us to the Celestial Water City?” Because of Lei Chen, Xue Ying was able to contribute greatly. That was why he was willing to help Lei Chen carve his path!
Lei Chen and Qing Ruo exchanged a glance. Lei Chen did not hesitate in replying, “Elder Dong Bo, we would like to go to the Celestial Water City.”
They had already decided to go there.
Furthermore, they experienced a great deal of hardship this time. A small place like the Golden Wing Nation was ultimately too dangerous, and if they had the chance to travel to the Celestial Water City, they would naturally do so! Furthermore, they need not pay the price of using the teleportation array if they were to go with Xue Ying.
“Alright. Both of you should wait temporarily in my Eden treasure.” Xue Ying kept them into the Eden treasure before returning to Ancestor Devil.
Ancestor Devil looked beneath. He extended his right hand before engulfing the city.
“Hong long long~”
Endless frost emerged from the void. It rapidly froze the entire black city. Under the control of Ancestor Devil, the black city also released sounds of ‘ka ka ka’; many places started crumbling apart. Just a moment later, the old underground sacred palace hall and the black city and even a large amount of ground surrounding this city had been completely exterminated. They turned into nothingness.
Only an ultra huge gouge was left behind.
“Let’s go.” Ancestor Devil brought along Xue Ying, tearing apart the time-space tunnel before entering it.
