Chapter 841: Traces
The Celestial Water City’s great protection array was completely activated, preventing any living being from escaping this place. This array was much stronger than the national protection array of a small nation like the Golden Wing Nation. This array had been personally refined by Forefather Tian Yu, and even Primal Chaos realm experts could not escape from it.
In the sky.
The Celestial Water Hall Master garbed in a blue gown was standing next to the white-robed Xue Ying.
“Assassination?” The expression of Celestial Water Hall Master changed, “You were assassinated?”
“Mn, he is very formidable. Fortunately, I’ve broken through to the Unity realm before this. Otherwise, I would have been in real danger.” Xue Ying solemnly stated. The other party was really stealthy. Fortunately, he had reconstructed his law domain according to the ‘Dark Bubble’, allowing him to discover the enemy.
If it were before he broke through, by relying on a law domain which he constructed according to the “Plate Ripple Diagram”, he would only be at the strength of someone who got through the third level of Star Pagoda. Xue Ying would not be sure he could discover the enemy.
If he could not do so…
Then the attacks of the enemy would have landed on him before he could notice the other party! If he were lucky, he might be able to activate his protective treasures before dying. If he wasn’t, he might just die!
“Who, who dares to assassinate an Inner Hall Elder of my Great Void Heaven Temple?” Celestial Water Hall Master looked down at the vast Celestial Water City below, “And he had done it in our primal chaos city.”
The Celestial Water Hall Master’s gaze landed on the area where the previous disturbances were created. That was where Xue Ying had utilized the Dark Bubble destruction.
The surrounding scene went back in time.
Celestial Water Hall Master was checking through what had happened in the past. The white-robed Xue Ying appeared on the streets, and the surrounding was entirely dark. Following that, the scene of time reversal trembled and collapse.
“I am unable to investigate what had happened?” Celestial Water Hall Master gritted his teeth, “The other party is truly vigilant. He has prevented me from examining what had happened in the past.”
“Elder Dong Bo, were you able to recognize who the other party is?” Celestial Water Hall Master asked despite knowing that it was almost hopeless.
“No, I don’t. Amongst the Primal Chaos experts and Chaos Gods I know, he isn’t included.” Xue Ying said, “He should have changed his appearances.”
“Cosmos God? Haha, those with such a status would not come and assassinate you. It is too disgraceful for them.” Celestial Water Hall Master shook his head, “I wonder which Primal Chaos expert is so daring.”
This was an act that would make the Great Void Heaven Temple furious. It was normal for the other party to change his appearances and aura when assassinating others.
“Hurry back to the Great Void Heaven Temple. I’ve already reported this matter upwards. The Sky Palace Hall should be investigating on this matter as we speak. My Great Void Heaven Temple will definitely let this matter rest!” Celestial Water Hall Master said, “When searching for traces, other than using his body appearance and aura, there are many other methods. The other party believes he can escape from us? It isn’t that easy!”
Xue Ying nodded. He had just broken through to the Unity realm and wanted to return to the Great Void Heaven Temple. Furthermore, the assassination this time had increased his alertness. Who was it that wanted to kill him? He should not have formed any huge enmity in the five great sacred worlds. His teacher ‘Gu Qi’ might have offended someone big, but Xue Ying had never revealed his identity.
At the next moment, Xue Ying immediately returned back to the Great Void Heaven Temple from the Celestial Water City.
Within the Great Void Palace Hall.
Forefather Tian Yu and Swordmaster were both seated at the highest area.
Below them were the other six hall masters. And by the two ends of the palace hall, there were the Inner Hall Elders. Xue Ying stood amongst them.
“Someone actually dares to assassinate an Inner Hall Elder of my Great Void Heaven Temple.” Forefather Tian Yu sat there coldly speaking, “Inquisitive Sky Hall Master, we’ll have to trouble you this time.”
“Alright. I am quite curious to see who is it that is so daring.”
One of the six hall masters stood up. He had a long silvery hair, and his skin was black. He was one of the more slightly unique hall masters in the Great Void Heaven Temple, the ‘Inquisitive Sky Hall Master’. The Inquisitive Sky Hall Master… could easily scout any location across the great five sacred worlds and primal chaos void even from within the Great Void Heaven Temple.
The Inquisitive Sky Hall Master’s pair of black eyes were looking at the void ahead. A scene projection also appeared in the void. It was of the street in Celestial Water City. Xue Ying was currently strolling on this street when suddenly, an assassination descended.
The entire region of 500 kilometers became quiet.
Nobody was moving within that region of 500 kilometers. Only Xue Ying and that enemy of his could move.
“Mn?” Forefather Tian Yu, Swordmaster and the many Hall Masters and Inner Hall Elders were shocked. Such a formidable law domain!
Xue Ying was startled too. The Inquisitive Sky Hall Master was amazing. That assassin had messed up the time-space in that location, preventing the Celestial Water Hall Master from probing the past. But the Inquisitive Sky Hall Master could easily determine what happened.
“This short and plump male doesn’t look like any expert that I know. He must have changed his appearance and aura.” Inquisitive Sky Hall Master said coldly, “As long as he acted, we can determine his identity from the moves he revealed.”
“He should be very vigilant, displaying some moves which he hasn’t publicized before.” The other hall masters added.
The experts across the five great sacred worlds specialized in different techniques.
According to their techniques, it was possible to accurately determine the possible identity of the murderer.
The expressions of everyone present changed.
Because the scene of the void showed a protective golden light appearing on the surface of Xue Ying’s body before proceeding to the shrinkage of the dark world. It had turned into a dark bubble which directly annihilated that plump and short male. But Forefather Tian Yu, Swordmaster and the others had a high perception, and they could see that the plump and short fellow did not resist. He had taken the initiative to dissipate that incarnation of his.
But what made their expression change… was the power of this dark bubble!
Their expressions turned towards Xue Ying. Their eyes were filled with either shock, surprise, admiration, and bewilderment.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying.” Forefather Tian Yu said, “You should be able to get through the fifth level of Star Pagoda now right?”
“Reporting to Forefather.”
Xue Ying respectfully answered, “I’ve bought a lone copy of absolute art, the “Dark World” during the treasure convention of Seven Star Oceanic Pavilion. This absolute art is very appropriate for me, allowing me to break through to the Unity realm. Furthermore, I was able to grasp the first style of the Dark World, the ‘Dark Bubble’ in one fell swoop. Naturally, there is the help from the Supplementary Spiritual Fruit too.”
“I can discern that it is one of the moves which the Dark World Master became famous for in the past.” Of the six Hall Masters seated there, there was a black-haired old man who laughed out, “Previously, Elder Dong Bo was still at the Origin Birth realm. It has just been over 100,000 years which you spent in the Celestial Water City and now, you are at the Unity realm and have even grasped such a formidable absolute art. Seeing you all made me think of how old I am.”
“Primal Chaos Hall Master has overpraised me.” Xue Ying immediately responded humbly.
This black-haired old man was faintly ranked first in the Great Void Heaven Temple, the ‘Primal Chaos Hall Master’. His strength was unfathomable.
“I was only able to get through the fifth level of Star Pagoda after bitterly cultivating for 100 billion years since I stepped into the Unity realm. Compared to Elder Dong Bo, I feel ashamed.”
“For you to attain such strength after reaching the Unity realm, it is truly admirable.”
This group of Inner Hall Elders was all praising him.
They felt admiration from deep in their hearts!
The current generation of Inner Hall Elders from the Great Void Heaven Temple were all at level five combat power of the Star Pagoda, and Xue Ying was too talented that he could also reach a similar level with them. It was likely that he could get through the sixth level in the future. With his current comprehension ability, the possibility of him breaking through to the Primal Chaos realm was huge too. In addition to how strict the rules of the Great Void Heaven Temple were, the inner sect was quite united, and they were quite happy to see the rise of Xue Ying.
“Inquisitive Sky Hall Master, are you able to investigate who the other party is?” Forefather Tian Yu asked.
“He took the initiative to dissipate without leaving behind any traces. It is quite impossible for me to search for his identity after that.” Inquisitive Sky Hall Master shook his head before returning back to his position.
“Let me try.”
Suddenly, a voice sounded.
All of them turned over. It was none other than Swordmaster.
Swordmaster’s eyes were deep and unfathomable. Many deity runes were revolving in the void ahead of him. They formed a haze figure of Xue Ying, and at the same time, they were also trying to condense into another figure.
That blurred figure suddenly transformed into an old man. That old man grinned, “Haha, Myriad World Tavern. Fair transactions take place here, and I do hope for you all to understand that.”
And that figure soon dissipated.
The expressions on both Forefather Tian Yu and Swordmaster changed.
“Old Ghost Myriad World!” Swordmaster coldly snorted. Forefather Tian Yu also understood that this vengeance was one they could not take.
“Myriad World Tavern?” Xue Ying also understood. There was someone who hired the Myriad World Tavern to assassinate him, “Who exactly is it?”
