Chapter 928: Exiting Closed-Door Cultivation
Heart Imitation Religious Master fancied Xing Huo Xun Yi, not because of his background, but because of his great improvement during the Star Convention. He thus incurred the curiosity of Heart Imitation Religious Master who did not believe that Xue Ying was the one to ‘dig his potential’; he believed there should be some other particular reasons.
For instance, ‘heart devil’, or ‘heart calamity’.
It was impossible for Xing Huo Xun Yi with his enormous talent and background to be in low spirits for so long. Heart Imitation Religious Master was sure that there must be some particular reasons, and it was highly possible that the affair was something related to the heart.
‘He has reached the Unity realm, yet he suffered from a huge setback in his heart realm?’ Heart Imitation Religious Master was looking forward to it, ‘He might be suited to learn the Heart Imitation technique that I created.’
That time Heart Imitation Religious Master was similarly a supreme talent. He was one of the two Unity realm experts who reached the seventh level Star Pagoda in the history of the two great sacred worlds. The technique he created directly targeted one’s soul. Hence, it was required for the cultivator to suffer from more setbacks in his ‘heart realm’. Every time the cultivator rose from his setbacks, his heart realm would become stronger. That was why he favored upon Xing Huo Xun Yi!
“Haha, you should properly think over it. You can always join my sect anytime before the end of Star Convention.” Heart Imitation Religious Master stood up. General Heaven Light similarly stood up as well.
Monarch Xing Huo stood and said: “Brother Heart Imitation, this brat Xun Yi is a little prejudiced, so I do hope that you will not overthink.”
“Cultivation is also about cultivating the heart. It is good to be dedicated too.” Heart Imitation Religious Master smiled nonchalantly. He was quite open about things. He felt that this was a good seedling, but if the other party weren’t too willing to accept him as a teacher, he would not force the other party! After all, in the eyes of such peerless experts, disciples were only inheritors of their absolute arts. It was the fortune of disciples for them to obtain his inheritance.
If they couldn’t, then it was because the juniors did not have such a fortune!
“Xing Huo Xun Yi.” General Heaven Light instead snorted coldly, “You should properly think things through. It is rare for Heart Imitation Religious Master to accept disciples. If you don’t take Heart Imitation Religious Master as a teacher, and decided to take what Dong Bo Xue Ying as your teacher, it’ll be too late for you to regret if he were to get stuck at the Unity realm forever.”
Xing Huo Xun Yi became silent.
General Heaven Light followed behind Heart Imitation Religious Master and left the place.
Within the courtyard, Monarch Xing Huo and his son Xing Huo Xun Yi returned.
“You sit down.” Monarch Xing Huo sat there and poured wine for himself. There was a rare smile on his face.
“Father.” Xing Huo Xun Yi obediently sat by the side.
“I would never have thought that there is a day that my son would make Heart Imitation Religious Master take the initiative to take you as his disciple.” Monarch Xing Huo said, “I am quite pleased with how determined you are. But I have to tell you, Heart Imitation is someone really talented and heaven-defying. The ‘Heart Imitation lineage’ he created belongs to the more unique kind of cultivation system.”
“Unique cultivation system?” Xing Huo Xun Yi felt puzzled.
Other than the ancient cultivation system, laws and profound mysteries system, strongest warrior system, hex cultivation system, Ancestor Mother cultivation system, devour-class system, and other commonly seen ones, there were still a few cultivators like the Voidwalkers. There were even some systems where the number of cultivators training in them in the entire primal chaos void could be counted with one’s fingers.
The more unique the system, the harder it would be to succeed in training it.
“Mn, his Heart Imitation lineage is considered a unique system. According to my understanding, there are only two cultivators in the entire primal chaos void training in this system–he and his disciple ‘Great Emperor Nine Dragon’.” Monarch Xing Huo said.
Xing Huo Xun Yi was stunned after hearing that.
Great Emperor Nine Dragon? He was a famous expert in the Blade Emperor City, and was an existence at the peak of eighth level!
“This lineage directly cultivates the soul.” Monarch Xing Huo said, “That is why it is so difficult to cultivate it. Those who succeeded can jump right to the Primal Chaos realm. Like Heart Imitation Religious Master and Great Emperor Nine Dragon, they have a bunch of disciples under them, yet none were able to succeed. For Heart Imitation Religious Master to be willing to take you as a disciple, it should be because he feels you have the potential of succeeding.”
“From my opinion, you should try joining his sect and attempt cultivating the Heart Imitation lineage. At the same time, you can cultivate the Dao of Mirage. It might be better for you.” Monarch Xing Huo looked at his son. The Blade Emperor City was ultimately the leader of the six great holy grounds. If any war occurred, the Blade Emperor City was much safer than the Great Void Heaven Temple.
“I am still adamant about joining the sect under Elder Dong Bo.” Xing Huo Xun Yi said.
“Why?” Monarch Xing Huo felt puzzled.
“In this life of mine, I have decided on this Dao of Mirage! And Elder Dong Bo is the best teacher for me if I am walking down this path.” Xing Huo Xun Yi said.
It wasn’t just the Blade Emperor City who invited him to join their holy ground, even Jade Light Sacred Territory and Primogenitor Island sent people over to invite him too. Naturally, they were rejected.
“What? Heart Imitation Religious Master came personally to take him in as a disciple, yet he rejected him?”
“He wants to take Dong Bo Xue Ying as his teacher?”
Everyone who came was rejected. This news naturally spread across the Primal Chaos giants who participated in the convention. When General Heaven Light and the other Primal Chaos existences were together, he had even asserted: “Hmph, that brat isn’t willing to take on Heart Imitation Religious Master as his teacher, yet he wants to take a Unity realm cultivator as a teacher? Is that not a joke?”
The Primal Chaos giants recognized that Xing Huo Xun Yi’s nature was quite resolute, yet the majority felt that it was quite hilarious.
That was Heart Imitation Religious Master!
Only after stepping into the Primal Chaos realm would one understand how frightening Heart Imitation Religious Master was. He was someone who created an entirely new cultivation system and was someone who could fight against Cosmos Gods directly before elegantly retreating.
Some had even taken the initiative to persuade Monarch Xing Huo when they met him. Nevertheless, Monarch Xing Huo merely shook his head with a smile: “He is resolute, and it is pointless trying to persuade him. I shall let him be.”
Within the cultivation room.
Xue Ying was seated cross-legged over here. The law domain enveloped the entire cultivation room. The current him had long re-constructed his law domain using the newly created move, ‘Destruction Flower’. Its power was naturally extraordinary. The law domains of some Primal Chaos giants might not even be able to stand up to Xue Ying’s. The laws of the sacred world were utterly forced out of this cultivation room.
Gradually, Xue Ying opened his eyes.
He had already created the fourth style of his absolute art “Mirage”, called ‘Frost Underworld’. Because it was close to the end of the Star Convention, he was not in a hurry to break through. Even though he understood that he would be able to break through after a short period of studying into the Primal Chaos realm, he still had to consolidate his foundations after breaking through. He had to perfect the ancient cultivation inheritance, absolute arts, and other aspects. And this period was something he did not have.
Instead, he spent more time delving into the ‘Voidwalker system’ and Plate Ripple Diagram.
‘It is only 300 years before the end of Star Convention. Time for me to exit.’ Xue Ying stood up, ‘And when the convention ends, I’ll break through to the Primal Chaos realm after returning to the Great Void Heaven Temple.’
“Hong long long~”
The cultivation room doors were opened, and Xue Ying left the place.
“Elder.” There would always be a female attendant waiting for him outside the cultivation room.
“If any cultivators are coming to see me, bring them over.” Xue Ying said. He came out 300 years before the end of the convention to give those talented cultivators preparation.
“Yes.” The female attendant responded.
Xue Ying also informed Inquisitive Sky Hall Master that he is currently out.
“You are finally out? Do you know that many holy grounds have taken the initiative to invite that Xing Huo Xun Yi? Even Heart Imitation Religious Master took the initiative to take him as a disciple, but it’s a pity that everything is useless!” Inquisitive Sky Hall Master transmitted over, “He has resolved to only take you as his teacher. Several other Primal Chaos giants went to visit Monarch Xing Huo, telling him to persuade that brat, though it is futile.”
Xue Ying was startled.
Many cultivators wished to become a disciple of Heart Imitation Religious Master.
‘This brat. He is quite resolute and crazy about the Dao of Mirage. Furthermore, he is quite talented too.’ Xue Ying chuckled, ‘And is a good disciple nonetheless.’
Xue Ying immediately went out of his cavern-dwelling and headed to the cavern-dwelling of Monarch Xing Huo.
Within the courtyard of Monarch Xing Huo’s cavern-dwelling.
“Elder Dong Bo, it is rare for you to come over to my place.” Monarch Xing Huo chuckled before sitting down. By the side, Xing Huo Xun Yi looked at Xue Ying with his eyes brightening.
“Previously, I have been in closed-door cultivation. Only after I left did I find out what has happened.” Xue Ying looked towards Xing Huo Xun Yi by the side, “Xing Huo Xun Yi is quite talented as well. Since the other holy grounds have taken the initiative to invite him, I came this time to also invite Xing Huo Xun Yi to my Great Void Heaven Temple. If he is willing, he can become my disciple too.”
Xing Huo Xun Yi immediately went forward and knelt down respectfully: “Disciple greets teacher.” He then kowtowed three times.
“Good.” Xue Ying chuckled and nodded.
