Chapter 872: Killing
“Jing Qiu, I’ll go out and have a stroll. I’ll be back soon later.” Xue Ying said.
Jing Qiu was unleashing her sword techniques. She gave her husband a smile with her eyes. Ever since her husband came back, she felt delightful. In the following months with her husband accompanying her, she felt content even if she could not transcend. She giggled, “Alright.”
Taking a step, space was distorted, and Xue Ying disappeared after entering it.
The next time he appeared, Xue Ying was already at the Nine Cloud Great Land. To him who grasped the power of ultra long distance teleportation, the vast primal chaos void, the five great sacred worlds… were places he could arrive instantaneously! This made Xue Ying sigh subconsciously… even ‘Monarch Nine Cloud’ who was considered the strongest in terms of attainments in the void, and was even better than Void Primogenitor in it, could not complete the fourth diagram absolute art. What exactly was this absolute art?
Monarch Nine Cloud could only formulate a crude fourth diagram despite his realm.
One had to know that the cavern-dwelling array he constructed was something none could break apart over such a long period.
Xue Ying stood in midair looking at the sun in the sky. He was able to determine where he was: ‘There’s some slight deviation. If I were to travel using the time-space tunnel, it’d take me two hours.’ Xue Ying took another step, causing space to distort. He directly traveled and arrived at a grassland very close to Devil Sword Guest.
‘I am very close already.’
‘If I am willing, I could reach in a shorter period.’ Xue Ying felt helpless, ‘But it is quite good for me to reach in the time taken to brew a cup of tea.’
Xue Ying did not dare to overexpose himself.
Ultimately, few Primal Chaos realm giants could teleport through ultra-long distance. As for ‘Unity realm experts’ having this skill, Xue Ying had never heard of such a person before! Maybe because he had not experienced enough things? But he was still the Inner Hall Elder of Great Void Heaven Temple, and Xue Ying had never heard of such a matter before. So it was still better for him to temporarily keep it a secret.
Wait until he is a Primal Chaos realm giant, by then nobody would dare to suspect him should he publicize this technique. Others would naturally think that Xue Ying had cultivated the ancient cultivation system!
Xue Ying swayed here and there, delaying for ‘the time taken to brew a cup of tea’ before finally arriving where Devil Sword Guest was according to the constant stream of new information.
“Devil Sword Guest, it is pointless for you to struggle any longer. This time, you are dead for sure.” Qi Wu Palace Master was in a purple robe. His long and narrow eyes were filled with a faint tyranny. He once again formed an all-encompassing array from a far distance above where Devil Sword Guest was. And Devil Sword Guest was doing his best to escape through the void, and he would occasionally pull out the black sword from his back.
After pulling out the sword, he would continually sheathe the black sword into scabbard again.
Every time he pulled out the sword… it would generate vast power.
‘Cough, cough, why isn’t he here yet? Where is the expert from the Great Void Heaven Temple?’ Devil Sword Guest was becoming anxious.
“Oh, Qi Wu Palace Master?” A cold voice sounded.
A white-robed teenager appeared after tearing through the void. This time, Xue Ying did not mask his appearance because he would usually remain within his hometown cosmos, and only when there were important matters would he come out for a walk. Since he would not be staying for long periods in the Nine Cloud Great Land… there was no need for him to conceal his identity.
Qi Wu Palace Master’s expression changed: “Dong Bo Xue Ying? Why are you here so fast? Even if Inquisitive Sky Hall Master from the Great Void Heaven Temple send you here personally, there should be a huge deviation due to such a long distance…”
Xue Ying’s eyes flashed with coldness.
“Hua hua hua!”
Many layers of Dark World descended and enveloped Qi Wu Palace Master. The layers of Dark World became real as they fell, and Qi Wu Palace Master did not have the time to even dodge.
“Not good.” Qi Wu Palace Master howled out furiously. He turned into a lizard-type mutated beast that was covered in scales.
The 120 layers of Dark World exploded at the same time. Qi Wu Palace Master also let out a painful howl as his body was injured and became ridden with injuries. Nevertheless, he was still alive. The pair of violet eyes of Qi Wu Palace Master stared at Xue Ying, and he immediately tore through the void without hesitation in a bid to escape: ‘This Dong Bo Xue Ying has cultivated for how long? Yet he can injure this body of mine that is constructed from many different hex poisons?’
Qi Wu Palace Master felt the danger, so he immediately chose to escape.
“Fleeing?” Xue Ying immediately pursued after him through the trajectory left in the void.
How could he escape from a Voidwalker who had the skill to travel through an ultra long distance? If he could escape, that would be Xue Ying’s greatest humiliation!
Only then did Devil Sword Guest let out a sigh of relief. He immediately landed on the surface and sat cross-legged; he began to expel the poison! Previously, he had been pursued and did not have the luxury to expel the poison, but now, the hex poison was being expelled.
‘How did Ancestor Sorcerer create this ‘hex’ system? That its poison is so formidable?’ Devil Sword Guest mumbled inwardly.
Before the emergence of the hex system, it was all about using poison.
But using poison then wasn’t as formidable as how it was used nowadays! Ever since the emergence of Ancestor Sorcerer, the ‘hex’ system he created had reached an unfathomable stage regarding the usage of the myriad existences. Arrays, refinements, hex poison, puppets… he had reached extremely high attainment in all kinds of different aspects. The other systems that utilized poison would also take reference from the hex system’s ‘hex poison’ usage, making ‘hex poison’ something frequently heard about nowadays.
Some of the weaker cultivators did not understand what ‘hex poison’ meant. They delved into poison and immediately named it ‘hex poison’.
“Hu.” Devil Sword Guest opened his mouth, causing a gray fog to be spurt out and dissipate along with the wind.
Devil Sword Guest’s expression became much more pleasant. The remnant poison in his body was no longer a concern.
Xue Ying’s figure appeared from the void.
“Brother Dong Bo.” Devil Sword Guest hurriedly stood up. He said with gratitude, “This time it is all due to Brother Dong Bo. Otherwise, this life of mine will be ended in the hands of Qi Wu Palace Master. Hmph hmph, this time, I’d suffered from his schemes. In the future, I’ll certainly find a way to eliminate him.”
“Qi Wu Palace Master is already dead.” Xue Ying answered.
Devil Sword Guest was stunned: “He, he is dead”?”
He was very familiar with Qi Wu Palace Master.
This was an extremely cunning expert from the Ancient Sacred Religion with a very formidable lifeforce. He had many ways to survive and cultivated in both hex and ancient cultivation system. He thought that the reason why Xue Ying returned so quickly was that Qi Wu Palace Master had escaped! But who would have believed that he was killed? How long had it been? He, Devil Sword Guest, was able to survive for this long under the hands of Qi Wu Palace Master.
‘He is too powerful already right?’ Devil Sword Guest was filled with slight disbelief. It was such a fleeting moment yet this famous expert, Qi Wu Palace Master, died here like this?
“I relied on external strength.” Xue Ying explained.
He had indeed depended on external strength.
Qi Wu Palace Master’s survival capabilities were too formidable. If he depended on his strength, he would only be able to kill the other party after pursuing him for half a day! Xue Ying did not wish to waste his time. Thus, he utilized the Black Gourd. Under the Black Gourd fireball which had reached the sixth level Star Pagoda strength in addition to his own ‘Plate Ripple Diagram’ domain suppression and the help of the ‘Multi-Layered Dark World’, he was able to kill Qi Wu Palace Master at such a fast speed.
“There is no such thing as external strength in life and death battles.” Devil Sword Guest said, “Brother Dong Bo, I truly admire you and your strength. This time, Brother Dong Bo has saved my life. How about coming over to my place? I live quite close, and we should be able to reach my place fast enough. By then, I’ll definitely receive Brother Dong Bo well. Brother Dong Bo must not reject me since it would mean you are looking down on me.”
“Alright.” Xue Ying acknowledged after seeing how passionate the other party was.
The two of them immediately penetrated through the void and traveled ahead.
Just a moment later.
“Wait a moment.”
Xue Ying and Devil Sword Guest appeared from the void. Devil Sword Guest looked at Xue Ying in befuddlement: “What’s the matter, Brother Dong Bo?”
Xue Ying frowned and looked beneath him. His current expression was ugly.
