Chapter 904: A Gift by His Teacher
There were very few who could reach the final realm ‘Cosmos God’ in cultivation. The number of Cosmos Gods within any of the sacred worlds could be counted with one’s fingers. There were even places like in the Ancestor Mother World where there was just Ancestor Mother alone. As for the silver-haired golden-horned male, he was one of the two Voidwalker Cosmos Gods, ‘Gu Qi’. The other would be the creator of the entire Voidwalker lineage, ‘Void Primogenitor’.
Gu Qi had once left behind his inheritance within the hometown cosmos of Xue Ying, and Xue Ying had passed through the trials before starting his journey of cultivating this Voidwalker lineage.
It was precisely because of his accomplishments in the Voidwalker lineage that gave him the foundation to comprehend the four diagrams left behind by Monarch Nine Cloud, allowing him to vaguely interact with the higher leveled world. Furthermore, Xue Ying had grasped the ultra-long distance teleportation technique too!
‘He has cultivated for a relatively short period, yet he could suppress Lei Yan already, haha…’ The silver-haired golden-horned man was genuinely delighted. Nevertheless, he could not find anybody to brag about this.
The silver-haired golden-horned male directly transmitted a message.
A figure directly condensed and turned into a black-robed green-haired male. This green-haired male had a pair of beautiful purple eyes. His entire person was like the void–being one with it. He walked to a stone stool by the side and sat down: “Gu Qi, what’s the matter?”
This green-haired male was none other than Void Primogenitor, someone who sincerely pitied the weak. He hated devils the most.
“You should know that my disciple is Dong Bo Xue Ying…” The silver-haired golden-horned male said.
“You asked me over just for this?” Void Primogenitor was slightly startled.
“This is a huge matter. He is my only disciple!” Gu Qi stared back.
Void Primogenitor felt slightly helpless: “Gu Qi, the Sacred Master is currently finding ways to kill you currently. It is fortunate that you are being protected by Ancestor Sorcerer with his entire strength. Otherwise, you would still be running for your life.”
The fury of Sacred Master swelled up towards the heavens. He wanted to kill Gu Qi no matter the cost!
The Eastern Unicorn Sacred World and Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World could not protect Gu Qi from the Sacred Master at all. Even though the World Ancestor was strong, unless Gu Qi followed behind the World Ancestor all the while, otherwise, there was only ‘Ancestor Sorcerer’ who could help him. Ancestor Sorcerer was indubitably number one regarding his attainments of arrays across final realm existences. With his help, he was able to allow Gu Qi to live days of peace.
Naturally, Gu Qi had paid the equivalent price. He had to coordinate with Ancestor Sorcerer in some of his experiments regarding the void aspect.
“What can I do if he wants to pursue after me?” Gu Qi leisurely poured wine for his teacher and himself, “I would just lose my little life at most. I have been to many places in this life of mine, seen through all sorts of happenings and countless experts. I’ve even made the Sacred Master suffer. Haha, right now, I even have a disciple who is the strongest Unity realm expert within the three great sacred worlds. Tsk tsk, I am quite happy with this life of mine already.”
“Your disciple and Lei Yan are equally matched. His attacks are quite strong, and the advantage of Lei Yan’s body is huge as well. Currently, he can’t be considered as the strongest Unity realm expert amongst the three great sacred worlds.” Void Primogenitor casually replied.
“How long has he cultivated for? I’m sure he will soon become the strongest Unity cultivator sooner or later.” Gu Qi delightfully commented.
Void Primogenitor could not help but sigh inwardly after seeing how happy Gu Qi was. This disciple of his did not really care about angering Sacred Master at all.
‘If only I could take another step, by then, Gu Qi would not have to run for his life anymore. In the end, it is because I, his teacher, is too weak.’ Void Primogenitor thought. His attainments in the void were great. After Monarch Nine Cloud died, he was currently the cultivator with the highest attainment in the void. If he could take another step and reach the second level, he would be able to fight against the Sacred Master by relying on his attainment in the void.
Just like how Sacred Master killed Monarch Nine Cloud in the past, he had invested countless time and effort to do so and was only able to bring about the fall of Monarch Nine Cloud during the final battle which led to the shatter of the primitive Ancient Sacred World.
And even now, Sacred Master was able to guess that the treasure cove of Monarch Nine Cloud was hidden in a specific time-space surrounding the ‘Nine Cloud Great Land’, but he could not find it at all!
“If there’s nothing else, I will be leaving.” Void Primogenitor said.
“Teacher, come on… Accompany me for a drink.” Gu Qi helplessly said, “My only disciple has become someone formidable. This is a rare moment of joy in this life of escapism. It’s a pity that I do not dare to talk to others since I am afraid of revealing Xue Ying as my only disciple, implicating him and bringing the wrath of the Sacred Master onto him. Thus, I can only find you, teacher.”
“Alright alright, since you are happy, I will accompany you to drink a few more cups.” Void Primogenitor shook his head.
Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World, Great Void Heaven Temple.
Xue Ying had already returned to the Great Void Heaven Temple. That ‘Wicked-Eyed Palace Master’ had been handed to Ancestor Devil for punishments. After that, the negotiation would happen between the sect under Ancestor Sorcerer and the higher-ups of Great Void Heaven Temple.
Due to possible conflicts and grievances, cases of tortures and punishments had happened many times. The three great sacred worlds would always stand on the same side due to their battle against the two great religions. They had their bottom line in dealing with things. Cultivators like the Void Primogenitor and Jade Light Master treated evil as their enemies, and they could only tolerate against those huge devils under the World Ancestor and Ancestor Sorcerer. At the most, they would merely punish them severely and cause them to suffer.
Xue Ying flew backward and clashed against many mountains behind, causing many of the mountains to boom and collapse.
There were currently eight blood-armored Destruction Devils standing in midair.
‘I’ve heard that Lei Yan is able to kill the majority half of the Destruction Devils as he tried crossing through the seventh level of the Star Pagoda. However, I can only kill two before finding it hard to carry on.’ There was a huge amount of blood energy which pervaded through the body of Xue Ying. The black armor on his body had been penetrated. He stared at the distant eight Destruction Devils, ‘I am not on par with Lei Yan concerning the breaking through of the Star Pagoda.’
‘That’s right too.’
‘The body of Lei Yan is extremely formidable. He is able to hold on for a longer period after being corroded by the ‘Destruction Energy’ from the Destruction Devils, thus, allowing him to fight and squander more Destruction Devils to their deaths!’
Xue Ying understood this point.
Actually, in terms of offense, his Sky Punishment Edge was slightly weaker and crafted less profoundly as compared to Thunder Pagoda Master’s absolute art, the Thunder Fire. But Xue Ying had cultivated the ‘Vermillion Nightmare inheritance’, allowing his soul to become strong. That was why he could unleash more than ten Sky Punishment Edges at once. In this case, quantity had covered up the lack of quality! It enabled him to triumph the other party with his offense.
If not for his much stronger soul, Xue Ying would not only be weaker in terms of his fleshy body than the other party, even his offense was weaker.
‘To get through the seventh level, I must become stronger.’ Xue Ying was slightly astonished. In history, there had been two experts who crossed through the seventh level within the six great holy grounds. Black Emperor had even said that he was able to reach the seventh level strength by fusing four of his inheritances together. Those who could get through the seventh level Star Pagoda were indeed talented.
One had to know, an expert at the seventh level Star Pagoda strength was considered strong even amongst Primal Chaos giants. For instance, Heaven Weeping Sect Master was classified in this category of strength.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying, hurry over.” Forefather Tian Yu’s voice reverberated within the space of the seventh level.
“Yes, Forefather.” Xue Ying replied.
With the help of the Star Pagoda treasure spirit, Xue Ying attempted to expel all the destruction energy left within his body. He then hurried off to where Forefather Tian Yu usually stayed. It was a slightly ordinary courtyard.
“Forefather.” Xue Ying was not obstructed during his way here.
Forefather Tian Yu was currently fishing. The lake within the courtyard was only about 33 meters long, though one could see many fish swimming within with their own naked eyes.
“For you to kill part of the Destruction Devils within the seventh level Star Pagoda is not bad already.” Forefather Tian Yu praised Xue Ying with a smile.
“Mn.” Xue Ying nodded.
He understood the meaning of the Forefather.
The seventh level originally had ten Destruction Devils teaming up together. They were like one entity and attacked as one. Even their defenses were together. Thus, they had excellent combat power. If one did not have sufficient offense, it was impossible to break through the teamwork of the ten Destruction Devils. For Xue Ying to force his way through and kill two Destruction Devils represented that he had touched the boundary of the seventh level Star Pagoda strength. He would soon be able to kill all the Destruction Devils.
“Take your time slowly and remember not to be arrogant or impatient.” Forefather Tian Yu was honestly looking forward to the future of Xue Ying. He continued, “Oh right, I asked you over because that teacher of yours has prepared a gift for you.”
“Oh?” Xue Ying was startled, “Teacher?”
“Gu Qi.” Forefather Tian Yu said.
