Chapter 908: Young Master Xing Huo
“Hong long long~” Space itself warped and collapsed. The disturbance created was immense.
Two figures walked out side by side. One was Xue Ying and the other was a silver-haired silver-robed black-skinned Inquisitive Sky Hall Master. Inquisitive Sky Hall Master concealed his aura, but those with acute perception like Primal Chaos giants would notice that this was merely an incarnation.
During most Star Conventions, there would be at least one Primal Chaos giant from each holy ground attending the convention. But this time, since Xue Ying was at the Unity realm, and he was taking the responsibility as a teacher of the convention, representing the Great Void Heaven Temple, another person was dispatched as well–the incarnation of Inquisitive Sky Hall Master.
Actually, most would only send their incarnations to attend the convention! Reaching the level of Primal Chaos realm, unless there were important matters that required them to kill extremely powerful enemies, they would usually send their incarnations. Even when they met with their friends or to attend certain ceremonies and gatherings–things that did not require fighting–it sufficed for them to send their incarnations!
‘This is my first time coming to the Blade Emperor City.’ Xue Ying looked afar.
In the distance, there was a colossal city. Under the law suppression of the sacred world, it was hard even with the current strength of Xue Ying to perceive the outline of the entire city. According to the intelligence report, Blade Emperor City was 3.4 trillion kilometers long. Cities spanning this length was quite common in the primal chaos void, though it was a horrifyingly large city when placed within a sacred world. This was practically the biggest city within the two great sacred worlds.
“Hong hong hong~”
There were many layers of array revolving above the Blade Emperor City. These arrays were constantly arousing the World Energy, causing it to surge up violently like tides. Rainbow light rays spread in all directions.
Under the sun high in the sky, Blade Emperor City became all the more dazzling.
“This place feels extraordinary isn’t it?” Inquisitive Sky Hall Master chuckled, “Blade Emperor has paid a huge price in creating this Blade Emperor City. It is said that even Ancestor Sorcerer and Luo City Lord had contributed to its construction. Unique treasures are protecting this place. Even if Sacred Master killed his way over, causing the entire Eastern Unicorn Sacred World to split, the Blade Emperor City would likely remain stable since it belongs to the strongest holy ground in our two great sacred worlds!”
Xue Ying nodded. Even though the foundation of Great Void Heaven Temple was deep, compared to the Blade Emperor City, it was truly lacking!
“Go, let us enter.” Inquisitive Sky Hall Master said.
The two of them teleported before arriving at the eastern entrance of the city. They then entered the place. After a moment, experts were coming over to welcome them, arranging a location for Xue Ying and Inquisitive Sky Hall Master to stay.
Two relatively luxurious cavern-dwelling were where Xue Ying and Inquisitive Sky Hall Master would be staying during the period of the Star Convention.
“Inquisitive Sky Hall Master, Elder Dong Bo, we have arranged for several attendants in these cavern-dwellings. If there are any minor matters, you can just order them.” A violet metallic-bodied male carrying three blades on his back said, “As for urgent and important matters, you can directly send a message to me.”
“We’ve troubled you, Commander Qiu Blade.” Inquisitive Sky Hall Master indifferently responded.
“It is my job.” This Commander Qiu Blade chuckled, “Then I shall not disturb the two of you anymore.” Commander Qiu Blade turned around and left. He soon teleported away.
Inquisitive Sky Hall Master watched as Commander Qiu Blade teleported and disappeared before saying: “Dong Bo, this time, you are one of the five teachers of the convention. This itself has brought about protests and disagreements. As a result, it is crucial for you to make your decision wisely during your selection of the talented cultivators. After all, you aren’t just representing yourself. Instead, you are repsenting our Great Void Heaven Temple too.”
“I undertstand.” Xue Ying nodded.
Forefather let him take on this responsibility as a form of training for Xue Ying. Xue Ying would naturally not do things that would harm the reputation of the Great Void Heaven Temple!
There were just three more months before the start of the convention. Xue Ying had already received the name register and relevant information regarding those who were attending the Star Convention this time! All registrations would stop one year before the start of the convention, and experts had been arranged long ago to ‘sweep’ across all experts from the various cities across the two great sacred worlds, bringing them to the Blade Emperor City.
‘Over 16,000 cultivators.’ Xue Ying read through the name register. He calmly pondered over it while walking across the Blade Emperor City.
Xue Ying was currently sight-seeing this ancient city while enjoying some of the more famous delicacies here.
On this day.
The Snow Dragon Restaurant was a very famous restaurant within Blade Emperor City. Its unique method of rearing ‘Snow Dragons’ along with the use of Snow Dragon blood to brew Snow Dragon wine, Snow Dragon meat, Snow Dragon tongue, Snow Dragon liver and various delicacies cooked in different methods made it famous. Even with how big Blade Emperor City was, and how many restaurants there were, this restaurant was still ranked in the top 1,000.
Cultivators required resources, but where did they come from? Other than going out on adventures, killing and fighting others, opening restaurants was another method of earning resouces. Many unique ancient cultivations excelled in the culinary aspect.
Xue Ying tasted the Snow Dragon meat that looked half-translucent and emitted a light fragrance. As he ate the meat, Xue Ying’s eyes squinted in pleasure, ‘This is absolutely ranked in the top 100 best delicacies that I ever had. Mn mn, in the future when I step into the Primal Chaos realm, when I can publicize my ability of ultra-long distance teleportation, I should bring Jing Qiu, Yu’er, and Qing Yao over to have a taste of this. Wuu, so delicious! Let me try the Snow Dragon liver too. Mn, this Snow Dragon liver is really soft, so soft that it struck a chord in my heart. Truly magnificent.’
The stronger the cultivator, the more sceneries he could experience and see. Of which, eating more delicacies were considered a sort of ‘scenery’.
A wine flask smashed on the ground, causing the wine to splash. The flask rolled to the side.
Xue Ying who was seated at the corner could not help but look up. Not far away, there were three cultivators, and it was rare for them to all be at the Unity realm. Of which, there was a simple green-robed male who stood up with a pale expression. Seated next to him were a golden-robed young man and a beautiful woman. The woman was vaguely giving off an alluring charm.
“Being at the Unity realm, you actually let the wine flask drop on the table?” The golden-robed young man shook his head and said, “Brother Fu Jun, can’t you even bear such a shock? How did you cultivate to the Unity realm given how weak this heart realm of yours is?”
The simple green-robed male was pale. He stared at the golden-robed young man and the beautiful woman. His eyes were filled with disbelief as he said with a shaky voice: “Yan’er, why, why did it end up this way?”
The girl in front of him…
Was his supposed true love. He was certain that she was the one he wanted to walk hand in hand for the rest of his life. He was willing to sacrifice his life for her, and living with her was pure bliss.
“Fu Jun, pardon me, but after meeting Xun Yi, I’ve decided that he is my true love instead.” The red-robed beautiful girl said with a soft voice, “You and I are both cultivators, and should know that love isn’t something that can be forced. When it is time for us to part, we should. I believe that with your cultivation heart realm, you should be able to adapt to it soon enough.”
The simple green-robed male looked at the girl, “In what aspect aren’t I as good as he is? I’ve cultivated for a shorter period, yet I am already stronger than him! I am certain that I will be able to enter a holy ground during this Star Convention, and we have known each other for a long period. What about you and him? Both of you have met for just a thousand years. Unless this happened because his father is that ‘Monarch Xing Huo’?”
“This is unrelated to Monarch Xing Huo. When we meet our true love, much less 1,000 years, one year is sufficient.” The red-robed beautiful girl shook her head.
The simple green-robed male looked at the golden-robed young man: “Xing Huo Xun Yi, I treated you as my brother ever since that time, yet I would never have thought that you are so ruthless! Whatever, whatever, I wish for you not to disappoint Yan’er. If you were to do so, I would never forgive you.”
“Brother Fu Jun.”
The golden-robed young man shook his head, “Firstly, it is your wife who seduced me.”
Fu Jun was stunned. The red-robed beautiful girl by the side was similarly startled. She had even used her magic power to isolate the surrounding. Xue Ying who sat by the side began feeling interested in the matter. Within his law domain, it was impossible for this girl to obstruct his probe at her current strength.
“Secondly, after being seduced by her, I immediately went to investigate the matter through the Xing Huo God Palace and had even checked about her past. Adding you, she already had three companions including you. If I were added, I would be the fourth!”
The red-robed beautiful girl was appalled.
Fu Jun was in disbelief: “How could this be?”
The heart realm of powerful cultivators was usually extraordinary. The moment they found a companion whom they would stay with till death, should their partner die, they would rather live alone! It was possible for them to fall in love with a second person due to unique circumstances, but never had there been a situation where a cultivator would have four companions in total! That represented a change of heart three times! The conclusion for this was undoubted that the party was harboring some hidden motives.
Indeed, such cultivators would deliberately entice others to become their companions so that the other parties would treat them well!
After all, one’s companion would usually stay unchanged. Like Xue Ying, he would stake his life for his wife, and would never regret in forking out large amounts of Origin World Rocks for his wife.
And those who deliberately deceive the other party into becoming his or her companion… would be able to cheat them for large amounts of resources.
“Yan’er, you, you…” Jun Fu looked at the red-robed beautiful girl in front of him.
“Don’t listen to his rubbish.” The red-robed beautiful girl hurriedly answered. She felt regretful in her heart though. In the past, she had chosen ‘Jun Fu’ because of his potential and had decided to think of ways to hook up with him. But in the end, she met the young master of ‘Xing Huo God Palace’ who would be participating in the Star Convention this time. Knowing that Monarch Xing Huo was someone famous, and a massive expert at the ninth level Star Pagoda strength, even the holy grounds would not dare to mistreat such a person.
How much resources would the young master of Xing Huo God Palace have? It far outstripped that of what Jun Fu could own.
“Ni Yan, are you thinking of quibbling even in front of me? Why, I’ve arranged experts over to investigate through your past. What about it?” The golden-robed young man indifferent stated as he held on to his wine cup.
The red-robed beautiful girl turned pale after hearing that.
“You are indeed Young Master Xing Huo and is truly ruthless. For me to fail in your hands, I accept it wholeheartedly.” The red-robed beautiful girl immediately stood up. She turned around and left. She did not care about giving these two males a second glance.
The golden-robed young man instead chuckled at Jun Fu: “Brother Jun Fu, you should be thanking me instead.”
