Chapter 910: The Unity Realm Dong Bo Xue Ying
“Ai.” Monarch Xing Huo sighed as he sat in the courtyard, “If only I had not given the Boundary Stone to Xun Yi, how good would things be.”
This son of his had almost become trash.
He had thought of many ways, yet none worked for him. This grief had already pervaded into the essence of ‘Xing Huo Xun Yi’s soul, and even if he sealed the memories of his son, his son would still hate cultivating–he was no longer willing. Monarch Xing Huo had even invited several Primal Chaos giants who specialized in the illusory realm for help to weave an illusory realm for his son! He wanted them to guide Xing Huo Xun Yi through the illusory realm and cure his grief but to no avail. Even though Monarch Xing Huo tried ‘using medicine for the heart to cure the sickness of the heart’, it was almost impossible for other experts to replicate that particular illusory world formed from the Boundary Stone.
Monarch Xing Huo even went to ask several Cosmos Gods for help. Their answers were exactly the same–his emotional injury had penetrated deep into the essence of his soul, and it was too difficult for him to recover.
For instance, Transcendents had been unable to rise again after stumbling down.
And Xing Huo Xun Yi was originally a genius at the Unity realm. He was very powerful and was proficient in the illusory realm too. Such an expert would not easily get affected in his heart realm. But the moment he became hurt emotionally, it was a trillion times harder to recover from it. External factors were practically impossible to help him recover from this wound.
The only way to save Xing Huo Xun Yi would for him to cure himself! But how difficult was it for him to take the initiative and struggle out of this quagmire?
‘I’ve always been by his side. Maybe I am wrong. I should rely on this Star Convention and let him go out to explore the world. Who knows there might even be miracles.’ Monarch Xing Huo thought. He had a heaven-defying power, but he was helpless when dealing with this situation.
In the blink of an eye, it was the official day of the Star Convention.
Xue Ying flew over together with Inquisitive Sky Hall Master through the sky in the city. They saw many other figures flying in the same direction as them! Within the Blade Emperor City, under the unseen array suppression, only those above the Unity realm could fly.
‘The gathering place where the Star Convention is at has been constructed really well.’ Xue Ying saw the enormous gathering place which was chosen to be next to the Star Pagoda. This location was chosen because the Star Pagoda was a fixed landmark, and Blade Emperor City only had few slightly wider regions which they could use to build the gathering place. This area originally occupied a length of 500 kilometers, but as they flew, the cultivators would discover a distortion in this gathering location, expanding it into a region of half a million kilometers wide.
“Inquisitive Sky Hall Master, Elder Dong Bo, please.” Experts immediately arrived to guide them along.
Once they got closer to the gathering place, most people would be forced to descend. They had to walk orderly in a line.
But this was not the case for Xue Ying and Inquisitive Sky Hall Master. They were guided directly to a distant towering high platform. There were a total of 11 seats at the center of the platform, with more seats by the side.
“Elder Dong Bo, please.” Everyone’s seat was appropriately allocated.
The middle of the 11 central seats was given to the most important person attending the Star Convention–the host, ‘Heart Imitation Religious Master’. There were only two ninth level Star Pagoda experts in the entire Blade Emperor City, and Heart Imitation Religious Master was one of them. Strictly speaking, it was rare for someone like him to host the Star Convention which happened once every trillion years.
And furthermore, there was another ninth level Star Pagoda expert taking on the role of a teacher of the convention this time–’General Hatchet Palace Master’.
Since General Hatchet Palace Master would be coming, Blade Emperor City as the host would naturally not disrespect the other party by sending a host with a lower level. That was why Heart Imitation Religious Master had personally come to host the convention.
To the left where Heart Imitation Religious Master was seated, they would be the five teachers of this convention. They were General Hatchet Palace Master, Violet Slaughter Island Master, Five Luster Serpent Ancestor, General Heaven Light, and Xue Ying.
And to the right, the other five were Primal Chaos guests originating from other holy grounds such as Inquisitive Sky Hall Master and other experts such as from the Star City…
Other than the middle 11 seats, there were several other seats located by the side. They were for Primal Chaos giants coming from non-holy ground superpowers! And there would be about ten of them attending this time. Even someone strong like ‘Monarch Xing Huo’ had to sit by the side because he was not part of the holy ground! This was the rule of the Star Convention. Only experts from the six great holy grounds could take the middle seats.
“General Hatchet, I would not have thought that you will take on the role as a teacher of the convention this time.” Heart Imitation Religious Master laughed. The external appearance of Heart Imitation Religious Master was weird. He had a thin and long face, and his five sense organs were quite ugly. Nevertheless, his aura was warm, and even those who were picky about appearances would feel joy when looking at him.
“It is time for me to have a walk outside. If I were to stay in closed-door cultivation forever, it is impossible for me to seek opportunities to breakthrough as well.” General Hatchet said.
“This last step is genuinely tough.” Heart Imitation Religious Master shook his head. He was once outstanding and the most dazzling cultivator for an era–being one of the two experts from the six great holy grounds who had crossed the seventh level Star Pagoda at the Unity realm. He had continued soaring after reaching the Primal Chaos realm and had even started his own religion with great self-confidence, publicly spreading his Dao.
Many cultivators joined his religion and abided by his order.
Nevertheless, this cultivator who reached the limit of Primal Chaos realm–the ninth level of Star Pagoda, had stopped here without improving any further. Even though he questioned himself and understood that he was not any weaker than Cosmos Gods in certain aspects, he still could not take that last step. As such, there was still an intrinsic difference between him and other Cosmos Gods.
On the high platform of the Star Convention, the Primal Chaos giants were chatting with each other. Many of them had known one another before this.
As for Xue Ying, he sat at the side of the middle seats by himself. ‘General Heaven Light’ was seated beside him, and there was a faint golden light revolving on his body which formed a slight power that suppressed on Xue Ying. This caused the expression of Xue Ying to shift: ‘He isn’t even keeping his aura? Is he deliberately suppressing me?’
General Heaven Light was at the eighth level Star Pagoda strength, so his power was relatively overbearing. Xue Ying decided to just apply his law domain and forcibly resist the other party’s power.
One was pressing down and one resisting.
The relationship between the two became even more frigid.
‘A Unity realm brat dares to be on the same level as us?’ General Heaven Light swept the corner of his eyes at Xue Ying. He was too lazy to even glance at him and too lazy to talk to him. He was famous for being tyrannical amongst the Primal Chaos giants, and he would even berate and put down the weaker Primal Chaos experts, much less someone at the Unity realm.
In his eyes, those at the Unity realm were ants! Even disciples of his own Blade Emperor City were filled with fear and trepidation for him.
Who would have thought that someone at the Unity realm would be standing on an equal level with him? General Heaven Light could not accept it. It’s a pity that this was determined by the Cosmos Gods, and he had no choice but to accept. But asking him to smile amiably at Xue Ying? Impossible!
A warm voice reverberated throughout the entire gathering place. It appeared as if the sound came from everyone’s soul.
Heart Imitation Religious Master chuckled as he began introducing the origin of the Star Convention and the rules for it.
The process for the Star Convention was straightforward.
First was the preliminary selections!
The 16,000 cultivators who were participating in the Star Convention would all try crossing through the Star Pagoda. The treasure spirit of the Star Pagoda would then determine the strongest top 100 according to the results of how far they went in the Star Pagoda! The treasure spirit was absolutely fair. It was still complete a task like ranking the cultivators based on their strength.
And the teachers of the convention would also spend 1,000 years to observe these talented cultivators. The talented cultivators could come and consult the teachers of the convention. Within the 1,000 years, the teachers of the convention would thoroughly observe before selecting those who were weaker, yet had great potential. Everyone could choose 20 cultivators! Adding up to a total of 100 as well.
Thus, there would be a total of 200 cultivators chosen!
These 200 were qualified to enter the holy grounds. But they would only become ordinary disciples under such situation.
After the preliminary selections ended, the 200 cultivators would obtain resources, absolute art books and guidance from experts by the six great holy grounds. They would cultivate for 10,000 years. Naturally, they would be cultivating in an environment where time was accelerated. In reality, only 100 years had passed. Even though it was slightly short, if they did not obtain sufficient resources and proper guidance in the past, this short period of 100 years was enough for their power to surge!
And whether it would increase would depend on their potential.
After the preliminary selections, they would cultivate for 10,000 years.
After cultivating, these 200 would then battle with one another to determine the top five!
And after the battle ended, they were still required to attempt the Star Pagoda in a bid to rank these cultivators again. This time, the teachers of the convention would have a total of 10,000 years for close observation. They would even personally guide them before choosing another five after this period.
A total of 10 cultivators! These 10 would be the most outstanding talents. They would be bestowed with resources and would be nurtured with a full effort by the holy grounds. Furthermore, they could choose the holy ground they wanted to join.
The five teachers of the convention would give lectures about the Dao to participating cultivators.
After all, such a convention where many talented cultivators participated in would have many cultivators spectating. Such a public lecture would be very helpful to these cultivators, of which most of them were loose cultivators!
And the convention would finally end after the public lectures were done.
Located in the gathering place of the Star Convention, there were a total of slightly more than 16,000 talented cultivators. They came from different places around the sacred worlds and the primal chaos void.
Other than them.
There were also a large number of cultivators spectating the battles–more than those participating in it. Just the residents of Blade Emperor City counted to a few hundred million people. There were also some who came especially just for this. There were so many people that it felt like an ocean. These spectators had occupied 90% of the space within the entire gathering place.
“Look, there is actually someone at the Unity realm above.”
“It should all be Primal Chaos giants. Why would there be someone at the Unity realm?” The spectators were looking at the high platform. The location of Xue Ying was extremely conspicuous!
“I’ve heard that there is someone at the Unity realm amongst the teachers of the convention this time.” At that time, those who were well-informed began talking about what they heard.
