Chapter 926: The Black Flower Bud
Gu Qi was a Cosmos God with a high status across the five great sacred worlds and primal chaos void. His fall had greatly startled these Primal Chaos existences.
They had even gotten a sniff of the incoming ‘war’.
“Senior Gu Qi is a Voidwalker. He is extremely good at escaping, yet he is still killed. The Sacred Master is so crazy. Do you think he is going to start another war?”
“The boundary of the void is constantly forming Destruction Devils. Others have already said that our primal chaos void is getting closer to destruction. Is the patience of Sacred Master also waning?”
“This madman! Everything is being stirred up by him!”
The four Primal Chaos giants including Inquisitive Sky Hall Master were chatting. As they mentioned the Sacred Master, they would grit their teeth.
Even though there were several huge devils other than Sacred Master like Ancestor Mother, the threat from the other devils was limited. ‘Sacred Master’ was affirmed to be at the first level of Cosmos God realm. He surpassed all other Cosmos Gods! If the three great sacred worlds were not united in their resistance, the entire primal chaos void might possibly be conquered by Sacred Master already.
A very long time ago, during the era of the primitive Ancient Sacred World, the Sacred Master had instigated several wars. He had almost conquered the entire primitive Ancient Sacred World. But in the end, the primitive Ancient Sacred World shattered from the war. Even though many Cosmos Gods had fallen, Sacred Master remained standing at the peak.
“Not just in the era of primitive Ancient Sacred World or the primal chaos void era, even though he, Sacred Master, has instigated many wars before, he still failed all the time. Clearly, we still have the upper hand in terms of overall strength.”
As they discussed.
Inquisitive Sky Hall Master turned towards Xue Ying by the side: “Dong Bo, you should return first. Who would have thought that I will hear such worrying news after returning to the Blade Emperor City.”
The other three Primal Chaos experts also said:
“Elder Dong Bo, you should return first and have a rest.”
“You shouldn’t worry too much since any Cosmos Gods have reached the final realm in a certain aspect. Even if the Sacred Master wanted to kill any of them, it isn’t easy to do so.”
“If the sky collapses, the Cosmos Gods would naturally be the ones to react and deal against it.”
In their eyes, Xue Ying was ultimately still at the Unity realm. Furthermore, he had cultivated only for a short while, and should barely understand battles happening at the highest level. As such, they mentioned a few consoling words to him. It was different for the Primal CHaos existences though since they were the closest bunch of cultivators to the Cosmos God realm. They knew many secrets at the highest level.
“Fellow cultivators, I’ll first return then.” Xue Ying immediately left, leaving behind the four Primal Chaos giants to continue their discussion.
Arcing through the sky, Xue Ying soon flew down into his cavern-dwelling.
The two protectors by the entrance of the cavern-dwelling saw Xue Ying landing. They immediately bowed and greeted: “Elder.”
Xue Ying calmly entered the cavern-dwelling.
“It seems that elder is behaving differently? Is he not feeling well?” The two protectors looked towards each other, muttering inwardly.
Xue Ying entered the cavern-dwelling. On the way, many of the female attendants bowed and greeted him.
“Elder.” A female attendant immediately stopped and greeted when she saw Xue Ying from afar.
“I will be entering closed-door cultivation for a few days. If there aren’t any issues, don’t disturb me.” Xue Ying coldly ordered.
“Yes.” The female attendant acknowledged.
Xue Ying turned around and entered the cultivation room by the side.
“Hong long long.” The cultivation room was shut close. An incense was lighted, causing its fragrance to diffuse in the room.
Xue Ying waved his hand, causing a silvery-silk praying mat to appear by the side. He then sat on top of it. An unseen chill washed through his body from the praying mat, and the lighted incense in the cultivation room calmed him slightly.
“Hu.” Xue Ying let out a long breath.
Extending his left hand, a golden seal appeared. As Xue Ying looked at this golden seal, a concentrated killing intent began gathering on his forehead.
‘What a joke.’
‘So what if I am frustrated. In front of Sacred Master, I am currently only an ant.’ Xue Ying kept the golden seal. He was trying his best to calm his heart. With his current cultivation heart realm, Xue Ying could not easily dissipate this intense anger and killing intent he was feeling. He had to force it down and gradually regain his calmness.
Suppress, and suppress even more! He was crushing the anger deep in his heart since this matter about avenging his teacher would be destined to happen far in the future.
‘Teacher, I am your only disciple. How can I not avenge you?’ Xue Ying thought.
His grand-teacher, ‘Void Primogenitor’ was likely infuriated too. But Void Primogenitor was ultimately only at the third level Cosmos God realm, and could barely survive! Without reaching the second level strength… it was impossible to fight directly against the Sacred Master.
‘The journey is far. I have to walk step by step.’
Xue Ying was becoming calmer and calmer.
And then, he began cultivating. Gu Qi’s death made Xue Ying understand that he must not slack. Even though there were only 10,000 years to the end of the Star Convention, and he was prepared to reserve the final few hundred years to guide the cultivation of the junior cultivators, Xue Ying chose to fully concentrate on his cultivation during this period! He did not hesitate to pour all his concentration into comprehending the killing move that fused both ‘Dao of Mirage’ and ‘Dao of Slaughter’ together. He had to step into the seventh level Star Pagoda strength.
To fight on equal grounds with Sacred Master and threaten him, Xue Ying had to be more ruthless to himself.
Even though his Dao of Mirage was extremely close to breaking through to the ‘Primal Chaos realm’, and Xue Ying would likely comprehend it after spending a little more time, he still desired to step into the seventh level at the Unity realm. It would definitely be beneficial for him to temper his own comprehension ability and other aspects before entering the Primal Chaos realm. This would significantly increase his chances of breaking through to the Cosmos God realm in the future.
His target was not just the Primal Chaos realm, but the final realm–the Cosmos God realm! Only then would he be able to threaten the existence of the Sacred Master. Naturally, ‘grasping the supreme law’, was the true final destination for the laws and profound mysteries system. But that was too unreal, and Xue Ying only remembered it deep in his heart. He dared not to overthink about it for now.
It was better for him to walk along the path underneath his feet. Maybe when he reached the Cosmos God realm, by then, he would understand the supreme law better.
Xue Ying sat cross-legged. He was pouring all his attention to researching this absolute move.
Just the Dao of Mirage alone and the Dao of Slaughter alone had reached the limit of the sixth level Star Pagoda strength. Only by fusing both together could he increase their power further.
‘Mn, it is different from the path taken by Dark World Master.’
‘I should proceed according to my own comprehension method. I should divide the destructive slaughter into three.’
All sorts of ideas were popping in the mind of Xue Ying.
He had already researched this move to a very high realm, and was just slightly lacking before reaching true perfection! Just like ‘Sky Punishment Edge’, if not for reaching the ‘My Heart as the World’ heart realm, it was impossible for Xue Ying to unleash this move. The same logic, to create a heaven-defying technique at the seventh level strength at the Unity realm, even though he had researched everything and accumulated enough experiences, Xue Ying had to reach absolute perfection stage before this technique could be unleashed. Not even a strand of imperfection could exist!
‘Maybe it should be like this.’
Xue Ying tried once again. At this moment, the killing intent suppressed deep in his heart made him alter this move by a bit, making the slaughter aspect more dominating, and making the whole technique more reserved.
It was like a peerless artist who was able to draw a famous piece of art under a particular heart realm.
The current heart realm of Xue Ying made him alter this move by a bit, but it was this bit that enabled the technique to reach an entirely new stage–an absolute perfection stage. Creating such world-dominating techniques, other than having sufficient comprehension ability and accumulation of experiences, sometimes, what one required was an opportunity! Clearly, the current heart realm Xue Ying had, even though he was suppressing his killing intent deep in his heart and was remarkably calm while cultivating…
It was this state of heart that enabled him to perfect fusing this move.
The illusory world appeared unreal and real at the same time. At the center of this illusory world, there was a black flower bud. It seemed tender with three leaves. The leaves were still filled with dew drops. When Xue Ying constructed the illusory world to produce this black flower bud, this flower bud did not collapse. Instead, it was able to form an ineffable natural concept.
Even though it had yet to turn real from illusion, just being produced in the illusory realm caused unseen laws to spread and spill over into reality.
In the cultivation room, the original operating laws of the sacred world were forced to retreat in front of it.
It was similar to how Cosmos Gods could unleash moves that could destroy sacred worlds. Even though Primal Chaos giants could not do so at their realm, it sufficed to cause part of the sacred world laws to retreat in a small region! In this region, I am the master. All laws of the sacred world would have to withdraw from it. And clearly, this ‘black flower bud’ had reached this stage of extent.
‘Descend into reality.’ Xue Ying’s eyes brightened.
The black flower bud turned real from illusion. Furthermore, under the control of Xue Ying, it was devouring the world energy slowly. After all, he was just testing this technique and wasn’t using it for a battle. During a battle, he would simply force the flower bud to absorb energy at a faster rate. Nevertheless, this would form a strong and violent vortex around his cavern-dwelling, which was uncalled for currently.
As it gradually absorbed the world energy, it became more and more real. Its three leaves, the surface of the flower bud and the rolling dewdrops on the leaves became very real. Furthermore, the surrounding temperature rapidly dropped. Within moments, the temperature had dropped to a stage that would make others tremble. This temperature was enough to freeze ordinary Unity realm experts to death. Cold, an absolute coldness…
This was merely it descending into reality. Xue Ying had yet to unleash the slightest of its true power.
