Chapter 896: To have a Lucky Break
Myriad Ancient Sacred World, there was a palace hidden within Lan Cang Mountain Range. Many arrays were constructed around this palace, making it hard for ordinary Unity experts to discover this place.
This was where the second commander, ‘Monarch Qi Hu’ of the Chief Devil Cliff currently stayed.
‘This luck of mine has previously fallen to rock-bottom, but now, it seems to have reversed!’ Within a little courtyard inside the palace, Monarch Qi Hu dismissed his attendants. He was left alone with a mystical mirror in his hand. This mirror seemed like an ordinary stone from its surfaces, but it was really smooth, and one could faintly see his own reflection on it.
Thus, it could be considered a mirror, though this ‘Stone Mirror’ was truly mystical.
‘That time I noticed that Black Chief Devil was strong enough and he specialized in abilities that complemented mine. That was why I decided to join the Chief Devil Cliff.’ Monarch Qi Hu caressed the stone mirror in his hand, ‘Teaming up with him has indeed made us stronger. Even fifth level Star Pagoda experts couldn’t defeat the two of us together… slaughter, plunder, those days were awesome. It had given me the chance to gather quite a lot of resources.’
‘Who would have thought that he is actually a follower of the two great religions.’ Monarch Qi Hu’s eyes were cold, ‘And he almost got me implicated. I had been captured by the experts under His Highness World Ancestor!’
He was directly captured, locked and interrogated…
Monarch Qi Hu was honestly panicking at that time!
Who was World Ancestor? He was someone standing practically at the highest spot amongst final realm existences. Only Sacred Master had enough strength to suppress World Ancestor. That time, Monarch Qi Hu felt despair. He thought he would die from being implicated. Fortunately, after going through many interrogations with the final conclusion being that he was not related to the two great religions, he was eventually released and regained his freedom!
‘Damn, damn that Black Chief Devil!’ Monarch Qi Hu felt incensed the more he thought about it, ‘You can rely on the two great religions all you want, but don’t pull me into this!’
‘At least my luck has become better now that you are dead!’
Monarch Qi Hu could not help but look down at the stone mirror in his hand. He subconsciously caressed it.
After being released, he went back to the Chief Devil Cliff and plundered the whole place clean–things like the protection arrays and others. That time, the two had forked out a considerable price for them. As he left the sect, Chief Devil Cliff soon collapsed. ‘The Inner Hall Elder Dong Bo Xue Ying of Great Void Heaven Temple has actually come to deal with Black Chief Devil and me. It seems that I’ve killed too many people these few days and have offended certain experts that brought this Dong Bo Xue Ying over.’
‘Whatever. Even though I do not kill and plunder as frequently nowadays, reducing the rate of accumulation of resources, it is better for me to remain discreet.’
Monarch Qi Hu decided since then to remain low-profile.
But he still eventually found ‘Resistance Wind City Master’ through the imprint he left. Resistance Wind City Master did not notice it at all. Monarch Qi Hu was someone who far transcended the abilities of Resistance Wind City Master in areas like void penetration… and thus was able to kill Resistance Wind City Master without the other party escaping from him. The stone mirror thus landed in the hands of Monarch Qi Hu.
‘I indeed have a fortune reversal. The stone mirror is more mystical than how I thought it to be.’ Monarch Qi Hu was incomparably excited, ‘By relying on the stone mirror, it is possible for me to create an all-new ancient cultivation path belonging to me alone! I would be able to reach the sixth level Star Pagoda strength, or even step into the Primal Chaos realm.’
It had been a few million years since he got the stone mirror.
The more he comprehended over it, the more magical the stone mirror was to him. It was the most mystical treasure he had ever gotten in his entire life.
Monarch Qi Hu who was originally living in seclusion with slight unwillingness decided to temporarily let go of his cravings to kill and plunder others. Instead, he concentrated solely on researching the stone mirror: ‘Hmph hmph, wait until I become stronger and step into the Primal Chaos realm. By then, I would be able to lord over all regions! What can a little Inner Hall Elder of the Great Void Heaven Temple do to me?’
Even if an Inner Hall Elder were stronger, he would still be at the Unity realm.
As long as he stepped into the Primal Chaos realm, his status would be entirely different. He would be the giant of a region and an overlord.
Like Unity experts, they would usually take the initiative to join a holy ground, yet the holy ground might not accept him! Especially Cosmos Gods like World Ancestor who disdained accepting Unity experts into his sect.
But it was different for Primal Chaos giants. If they were willing to join a holy ground, any holy ground would happily accept them!
There were even more Primal Chaos giants who were not too willing to join a sect because although it might be helpful to them, they had greater responsibilities too. For instance, they might be arranged to head to the boundary of the void and battle with the Destruction Devils! And the stronger an expert was, the more arrogant he would be. Thus, many Primal Chaos giants decided to set up their own organizations and sects.
Black Emperor and Ancestor Desert were two such examples.
Reaching their level, unless the true body of a Cosmos God killed his way over, nobody else would be able to threaten them at all! And Cosmos Gods would not become enemies with these giants for no reason at all.
‘Things would be entirely different when I step into the Primal Chaos realm.’ Monarch Qi Hu was filled with expectations towards that day. He then lowered his head and looked at the stone mirror in his hand.
Previously, he was not confident at all in entering the Primal Chaos realm because he did not even have a sliver of understanding towards the Primal Chaos realm. But now that he had this stone mirror, during the past few million years, he was able to vaguely see himself stepping on the Dao path towards the Primal Chaos realm. Naturally, he regained his confidence.
The clouds were like silk traces. Xue Ying walked out from the distorted void. He stood above the cloud layer looking down at the vast continuous mountain range.
“Lan Cang Mountain Range.” Xue Ying muttered to himself, “He has hidden really deep. This devil head Monarch Qi Hu could actually endure and control his impulse not to kill and remain low-profile. That is honestly puzzling. Is he still frightened after being captured by the subordinates of World Ancestor?”
Xue Ying definitely did not believe that this was the case.
It was impossible for such a huge devil to go against his cultivation heart realm. The other party had reached the ‘heart as blade’ level at least, and it was impossible for those at this realm to have such a huge personality change. Xue Ying reckoned that Monarch Qi Hu should be lying low for a short period. That devilish personality in the other party’s heart would ultimately surface after a period, urging him to go out and kill again.
But Xue Ying was wrong! Monarch Qi Hu was not holding his desires back. Instead, he was crazily immersed in comprehending the stone mirror.
‘According to the intelligence of Seven Star Oceanic Pavilion, the location of Monarch Qi Hu’s palace should be there.’ Xue Ying took a step. “Shua shua shua”–a few teleportations led him deep into the Cang Lang Mountain Range.
The mountain below had an enormous jadeite lake. Surrounding the lake was many trees and flowers. This place was beautiful. No traces of human activities could be seen.
The fiery-red Vermillion Nightmare imprint lighted up on Xue Ying’s forehead. A huge fiery-red god bird, Vermillion Nightmare, had appeared behind his body fanning its wings. As the Vermillion Nightmare slowly fanned its wings, a fiery-red stream of air began spreading out, and Xue Ying’s aura also began pervading the place.
Vermillion Nightmare illusory technique.
The red stream of air which could be seen with the naked eyes contained fluctuations of the soul too.
The fluctuations of the soul were able to easily bypass many of the hidden arrays beneath. Even though the arrays were strong, they could not obstruct the assault of the soul! As for the illusory technique… it was clearly a soul attack.
Many servants located within the hidden palace became muddleheaded. They were completely pulled into the illusory realm. Xue Ying had improved the Vermillion Nightmare illusory technique to the sixth level Star Pagoda strength, and even Inner Hall Elders of the Great Void Heaven Temple would be affected, much less these servants.
