Chapter 918: Name Register
After walking out of the residence, Ba Yun Palace Master glared back with gloominess. Those two protectors by the entrance of the residence did not dare to breathe under such heavy atmosphere.
“A puny Unity realm dares to be so egotistical and ignorant!” Ba Yun Palace Master coldly stated before leaving.
Those two protectors looked at each other.
“He is saying that Elder Dong Bo is egotistical and ignorant?’
“It seems that he has fallen out with Elder Dong Bo during their conversation? But speaking about Elder Dong Bo, even if he is rejecting a Primal Chaos giant, he should also not make it so ugly.” These two protectors continued speaking to each other through voice transmission. They had even begun spreading this matter to some of their good friends.
They as protectors and attendants were all arranged by the Blade Emperor City. They were considered members of the lower level of Blade Emperor City and were temporarily serving Xue Ying during this period of Star Convention. The moment the Star Convention ended, they were too lazy to even care about an Inner Hall Elder of the Great Void Heaven Temple. Hence, they were extremely delighted to gossip about the secrets of these ‘great characters’.
Those who were well-informed soon heard of Ba Yun Palace Master calling Xue Ying ‘egotistical and ignorant’. And the majority of those who knew of this stood on the side of Ba Yun Palace Master.
Because in the primal chaos void and five great sacred worlds, they were used to the higher statuses of Primal Chaos giants. A Unity realm expert should always respect a Primal Chaos giant when facing them!
Xue Ying was too lazy to even care about what the others were gossiping about. Only the weak would focus on the actions of the experts. The true experts did not have the time to care about such minor affairs of the ‘weak’. Before breaking through to the Primal Chaos realm, he would not easily offend those at the Primal Chaos realm. He would rather tolerate. But under the premise that he was absolutely sure he would break through, even though Xue Ying was still polite, he would absolutely not tolerate the other party strutting his nose on him. So what if they have an acrimonious falling out? Not too long later, Xue Ying would easily surpass the other party.
During these days as Xue Ying was meditating by the side of the lake in his cavern-dwelling, he suddenly received a piece of news.
It was news from the host for this Star Convention, ‘Heart Imitation Religious Master’.
“There is still half a year before the period of 1,000 years is up, yet General Hatchet Palace Master has given his selected name register to Heart Imitation Religious Master already?” Xue Ying felt shocked. This news which Heart Imitation Religious Master sent was precisely the 20 names chosen by General Hatchet Palace Master.
“Mn, he has chosen well.”
After Xue Ying browsed through the name register given by Heart Imitation Religious Master, Xue Ying was able to ascertain that all of them had potential ranking in the top 300.
“Chen Qiong.” Xue Ying chuckled. He discovered this name, “Monarch Hidden Dragon should have gone off to find General Hatchet Palace Master as well. I originally planned on choosing him.”
This brat called Chen Qiong had cultivated for a short period. During this 1,000 years, he had come seeking his guidance three times. His improvement was relatively clear, and regarding potential, he would rank in the top 20.
Day passed by day.
The entire Star Convention began flaring up in the dark. Those who were well-informed had known that the names of the Star convention were gradually being handed in.
General Hatchet Palace Master had the highest status and was the first to hand in the name register.
Half a month later, Violet Slaughter Island Master being the only female had handed in the second name register.
And another month later, Five Luster Serpent Ancestor also handed in his name register.
A month later, the Primal Chaos existence who belonged to the hosting Blade Emperor City for this time’s Star Convention, ‘General Heaven Light’ also handed in his name register.
Xue Ying being a Unity realm naturally knew what he should do. He was the final one to hand in the name register.
“Please send word that Dong Bo Xue Ying is planning to meet Heart Imitation Religious Master.” Xue Ying stood before a large residence. The place Heart Imitation Religious Master stayed at was naturally his own residence in the Blade Emperor City.
“It is Dong Bo Xue Ying.”
“Dong Bo Xue Ying who is one of the five teachers of the convention.”
“He is here to hand in his name register.”
Many people were keeping a watch outside the front entrance of Heart Imitation Religious Master’s large residence, especially some of the talented geniuses who were paid extremely close attention to this. They were thinking of ways to know who was chosen by the previous four teachers of the convention, and now, it was only Xue Ying left. The secrecy of the registers was not kept since Heart Imitation Religious Master, the other five teachers of the convention and many Primal Chaos giants who came for the convention would be able to obtain a set of the names.
After all, those names would eventually be publicized, and there was no need for them to be kept a secret.
“The final set.”
“I hope that I am included in this final set of 20 people.”
“This is the final chance.”
Some of the talented cultivators who were already standing by the residence of Heart Imitation Religious Master were extremely nervous. They were hoping for it. In the previous 1,000 years, many had come to visit Xue Ying, though Xue Ying had never given his word.
Within the residence.
Xue Ying walked on under the lead by the servant. He walked through a few bent corridors before entering a huge plaza and finally into a towering black palace hall. This palace hall was truly majestic. It occupied about one-tenth the entire residence and spanned 5,000 kilometers in range of area. It was also the most dazzling structure in the whole palace.
This was the famous ‘Heart Imitation Palace Hall’.
‘Heart Imitation Palace Hall.’ Xue Ying thought. He knew that Heart Imitation Religious Master would usually cultivate within the Heart Imitation Palace Hall, and he had created this unique palace hall for the sake of cultivation.
“Elder Dong Bo, Religious Master is inside.” The servant stopped just outside the palace hall.
Xue Ying nodded and entered the place.
The enormous Heart Imitation Palace Hall was tall and spacious. The colossal palace hall which spanned over 5,000 kilometers was quite empty without having any decorations. There was only a single figure seated cross-legged in this dark enormous palace hall. He was Heart Imitation Religious Master. Heart Imitation Religious Master was currently wearing a loose robe, with his robe spreading out on the floor. His back was slightly hunched, and he was looking at Xue Ying with a smile.
Even though he did not emit any aura at all, Xue Ying could feel the entire Heart Imitation Palace Hall becoming bigger and bigger in his senses…
It felt endless. The darkness did not have any limit. It felt like the entire Heart Imitation Palace Hall was like the vast cosmos.
And Heart Imitation Religious Master was at the center of this cosmos. He sat there as if he were the owner of the cosmos.
‘Indeed, as they say, those Primal Chaos giants who reached the ninth level Star Pagoda strength aren’t any weaker than Cosmos Gods in certain areas.’ Xue Ying saw this scene. Even though Heart Imitation Religious Master did not emit any aura, and wasn’t displaying any techniques, just sitting there allowed Xue Ying understand how frightening the other party was.
At least for now, the other party could kill him easily.
Even with the protective treasure bestowed by Forefather Tian Yu, he could only withstand for a move or two.
“Elder Dong Bo.” The ugly face of Heart Imitation Religious Master was filled with a heart-warming force. His voice was gentle too, “The previous four teachers have already fixed their name registers. Once you send in your name register, the 100 cultivators will be selected, and we can publicize the chosen cultivators.”
“I’ve already chosen.” Xue Ying nodded. He waved his hand, causing a golden scroll to appear. This scroll flew towards Heart Imitation Religious Master.
Heart Imitation Religious Master received it before casually reading through. Suddenly, he frowned slightly. His vision landed on one of the 20 names–Xing Huo Xun Yi!
Heart Imitation Religious Master looked up at Xue Yin.
Xing Huo Xun Yi?
Being the host for the Star Convention this time, Heart Imitation Religious Master naturally understood all the talented cultivators participating in it. He paid exceptionally close notice to Xing Huo Xun Yi naturally because he was the son of an ultra-strong expert on the same level as he is–’Monarch Xing Huo’. With such a huge background, he had cultivated for over 500 billion years, yet was merely ranked at 3,600th. His potential should be ranked beyond 5,000th amongst all the talented cultivators.
Speaking from his inner heart, Heart Imitation Religious Master had a favorable opinion of Xue Ying since he was the strongest Unity realm expert arising in this generation. He could even compete with Lei Yan from the Myriad Ancient Sacred World.
“Are you certain that this is your final name register?” Heart Imitation Religious Master looked at Xue Ying, “Right now I have yet to publicize the register to everyone. You can still alter it.”
“There’s no need to change.” Xue Ying shook his head.
Heart Imitation Religious Master hesitated for a while, though he still continued: “Elder Dong Bo, I’ve heard that Forefather Tian Yu is the one who recommended you as the teacher for this convention. Of the five Cosmos Gods, there were two who objected to it. You had barely passed through their selections. Your decision doesn’t merely concern you. It also represents your Great Void Heaven Temple.”
The name register would be released to the public.
Even though some experts could be selfish and be shameless, the holy ground would still want to keep their reputation. If the teacher were ridiculed by many cultivators, in the end, it would be the Great Void Heaven Temple who lost its prestige.
“Many thanks, Heart Imitation Religious Master for your good intention. I’ve decided as it is.” Xue Ying smiled.
Heart Imitation Religious Master shook his head inwardly. It was rare for him to even give a sentence or two of advice. He then nodded: “Alright, then the name register will be fixed as it is.”
Following that, Heart Imitation Religious Master began reading out the selected names on the register. At the same time, he began arranging for the name register to be publicized!
