Chapter 958: Discovered!
Xue Ying was like an ascetic monk traveling across the world, executing his illusory realm every now and then. In reality, given how strong his soul was, and how deep his realm reached, Xue Ying merely needed to use one-hundredth of his total heart energy to execute his illusory realm across a vast region. Hence, Xue Ying was actually concentrating more on cultivation instead. Every time he brought the illusory realm down on an area, causing a trillion beings to fall into it, it would bring about different changes, and allow Xue Ying to gain a newfound understanding of the ‘Dao of Mirage’.
Living like an ascetic monk was also a kind of cultivation.
Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World, Moon Phoenix Nation.
The Moon Phoenix Nation was a nation with quite a rich history. The previous king was ruthless and unpopular. Many cultivators were unhappy with him inwardly. Nevertheless, strength was respected in the world of the cultivators. The cultivators could only endure it in their hearts. After that when the current king appeared, because he had some enmity with the previous king, he directly killed his way into the palace, bringing down the previous king before taking on the mantle as the new and current king.
Ever since then, life in the Moon Phoenix Nation was much better.
Firstly, this new king was stronger. He had supposedly, strength at the peak of the fourth level–that was sufficient to frighten the whole region.
Secondly, the temper of the king was good. He preferred cultivating. If there were nothing significant, he would remain in closed-door cultivation. The civilians naturally fancied this king.
The cultivation room opened.
The current Moon Phoenix King had a long body. He looked quite handsome, and his eyes were long and narrow–they were slightly charming like a fox. Even though he was a male, he gave off quite an enchanting feeling.
“Your Majesty.” The female attendants within the palace naturally bowed respectfully after seeing him.
Moon Phoenix King smiled and nodded. He ordered: “Go and prepare. I am planning to take a bath.”
“Yes.” The female attendants within the palace liked this life of theirs because the current king had an excellent temper. He treated these female attendants very gently as well.
The Moon Phoenix King walked on personally, arriving at a high spot within the palace. He leaned against the railings while looking at the waning moon in the sky. There was a gentle smile on his face.
He then flew up into the sky in an instant, disappearing from the place.
In a desolate little kingdom quite far away from the Moon Phoenix Nation, this city occupied an area spanning just 2.5 million kilometers long. This did not represent that it was weak. There were Unity experts who started a nation, expanding it across a region more than five kilometers long. Nevertheless, if a city was too big, the Unity realm expert would be hard-pressed from defending it when a devil assaulted his territory.
For instance, each of the 13 primal chaos cities under the Great Void Heaven Temple occupied an area spanning only a hundred million kilometers. This was a city created by a holy ground, yet they did not dare to make it too big since it would be a joke if they could not defend the place.
To cultivators, it was not hard for them to build a bigger city. The difficulty was more of ensuring its safety.
The Moon Phoenix King appeared above this nation looking downwards.
The city occupying an area spanning 2.5 million kilometers did not contain many civilians. They numbered just a third of the Moon Phoenix Nation, though it still numbered in ‘hundreds of millions’.
‘It has been a long time since I last had such delicious food.’ Moon Phoenix King chuckled.
An unseen fluctuation expanded. It covered the entire nation beneath within an instant.
The next moment, all civilians within the city had their power sealed. They could not speak, nor could they transmit messages out of the city.
‘Come on.’ Moon Phoenix King extended his hand, “xiu xiu xiu”, many civilians began flying over. They flew over into the sleeves of Moon Phoenix King. Very soon, the entire nation became empty without a single being left within. It became a deserted city after that.
About an hour later.
Moon Phoenix King returned to his palace. The water for the bath had already been warmed.
The female attendants went out.
The Moon Phoenix King lay in the bath water by himself. He was enjoying the water with a smile. He felt carefree: ‘Being the king in a nation within the cultivator’s world is truly comfortable. Ah…, there are also delicious meals here.’ Waving his hand, many ‘tiny man’ began appearing in midair. He then opened his mouth and sucked. A horrifying devour force appeared, causing these tiny men to fly into his mouth without resistance. Many of the ‘tiny men’ revealed expressions of horror and wanted to shout in despair, yet they could not make any sound at all.
“Pu pu pu…”
The Moon Phoenix King casually chewed. He was revealing expressions of bliss.
‘Even though I’ve transcended beyond the control of my desires to slaughter, ultimately, I am still a Destruction Devil. The feeling of swallowing the cultivators is honestly too enjoyable.’ Moon Phoenix King was feeling incomparable joy. He was as such–he would occasionally go out and capture all residents of a nation while occasionally devouring bit by bit. Once he finished his collection, he would go out and capture more cultivators again.
With his strength, it was impossible for him to leave behind any traces.
On the side of the cultivators, they were unable to ascertain whether it was the Destruction Devils who committed the deed, or a huge wicked devil cultivating the devour-class cultivation system.
After all, he was a ‘king’ within the Destruction Devil race, and to those small desolate nations, he was too powerful! It was to the extent that the opposing party could not resist at all.
‘That hex cultivation scripture is too complex. The devour-class cultivation system is much easier. What a pity that it isn’t suitable for our Destruction Devils to cultivate it.’ Moon Phoenix King shook his head inwardly. He would ponder through the scriptures which he read previously. To the Destruction Devils, the laws and profound mysteries system and hex cultivation system were of great help. They could even evolve their own talents, but cultivating them was not easy.
Moon Phoenix Nation.
Xue Ying first depended on ultra-long distance teleportation to arrive at a location slightly closer to the Moon Phoenix Nation. He then proceeded with teleporting towards his destination. Every time he moved closer, Xue Ying would probe his surroundings! He did not dare to ‘teleport’ directly to his final destination because the moment he was discovered by the Destruction Devils, they would be frightened to the point of fleeing.
Ordinary teleportation was more commonly seen.
‘Moon Phoenix Nation?’
Xue Ying was able to see this city already. He did not attach much importance to it since he had been seeking for traces of Destruction Devils the past over two billion years to no avail! The world was too big, and there were ultimately too few Destruction Devils hiding within. Hence, it was very difficult for Xue Ying to find these devils. Xue Ying might be rushing, but 99% of his concentration was spent on cultivation.
Taking a step, Xue Ying arrived right above the Moon Phoenix Nation. At the same time, he released a huge illusory realm with great familiarity.
The illusory realm covered a huge area, and easily covered the entire nation.
At this moment, many residents of the Moon Phoenix Nation had fallen into an illusory realm. Even those domesticated animals had fallen into it. The entire Moon Phoenix Nation fell into extreme silence an instant later. Even the ‘Moon Phoenix Palace’ which was guarded extremely strictly–the palace guards and female attendants had fallen into an illusory realm.
It was quiet.
Only the Moon Phoenix King remained there lying back. He who was previously being fed good wine and fruits leisurely by the female attendants serving him had suddenly changed expression when he realized all the female attendants had fallen into an illusory realm. He immediately looked ahead. His gaze crossed through the obstacles of the wall, landing on that white-robed teenager standing in midair outside the palace.
Xue Ying also discovered the Moon Phoenix King because he was the only person who did not fell for his illusory realm within the entire nation.
‘Who is he? According to the intelligence, the Moon Phoenix King is merely at the Unity realm. He hasn’t even reached the fifth level Star Pagoda strength. How can he remain totally unaffected by my illusory realm?’ Xue Ying revealed a joyful look. It might be possible that he had finally discovered a Destruction Devil.
The laughter boomed.
A huge black mouth appeared high above the Moon Phoenix Nation. This mouth was much bigger than the entire city of the nation, and it was so deep that one could not see the depth. It enveloped the whole city including Xue Ying.
“Discovered me already? Cultivator, I truly congratulate you.” The laughter reverberated by the ears of Xue Ying.
Xue Ying saw that incomparably huge ‘mouth’ hanging high in the sky. He could not help but change expression. That incomparably huge mouth suddenly breathed in fiercely in the direction downwards. The entire city distorted and shattered. The many beings within also disintegrated alongside it. That horrifying devouring force had clearly affected Xue Ying.
‘Not good, it is a Cosmos God!’ Xue Ying was extremely frightened.
Who would have thought that the first hiding Destruction Devil he discovered would be a Cosmos God!
