Chapter 979: Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master
World Ancestor was inwardly shocked because he was clear of his teacher’s temperament. His teacher had been relatively apathetic when he first imparted the inheritances to World Ancestor and Black Emperor. It was after living together in the days after did their relationship gradually deepened.
‘With teacher’s personality that is carefree, he did not object even when I publicized the devour-class lineage, producing many devils in the world. Even when he decided to select disciples, he would usually just impart some inheritances to them because of fate. Yet this time, he is being extremely prudent, and wants to conduct several trials for the other party?’ World Ancestor was inwardly shocked. The more serious his teacher was, the more he emphasized and favored Xue Ying.
The thin small old man looked afar: “Little devil, Dong Bo Xue Ying this young fellow is unique. I’ve met before many fellows, and have imparted to quite a few disciples… but you know that I ultimately specialized in the fleshy body. Those who are fated with me are usually those with strong fleshy bodies. This is still a first that the other party has such great attainments in the soul! Furthermore, his understanding of the illusory realm is beyond mine so I can’t help him much. Even if I were to accept him as a disciple, I am merely giving him an opportunity for him to grow.”
World Ancestor felt his heart leaping as he listened.
It was indeed a great opportunity. His second disciple brother, ‘Black Emperor’, as well as their youngest junior brother had never gotten it before. Only World Ancestor with his highest potential had once been nurtured fully by his teacher.
Currently, his teacher had prepared ‘some’ opportunities for Xue Ying. It was clear there would not be just a single opportunity prepared for Xue Ying. Naturally, it was because his teacher could not guide Xue Ying in the aspect of the illusory realm; he could only provide opportunities to aid the other party.
“If he were to succeed, I as his teacher could have the chance of learning from him in the future.” The thin small old man chuckled and sighed, “I’ve trapped at this final step for so long. Somehow, I always feel I lack in the soul aspect. Even though I’ve created the ‘Dreamland Cultivation Technique’, and I haven’t gotten weary of it yet, that is to say, it could continue digging more potential from my body and allow me to cultivate and deduce for eternity, I still haven’t broken through.”
The thin small old man looked at World Ancestor. His eyes were filled with complexities, “Many young fellows have been fated to meet me, yet each of them eventually returned back to nothingness. The Destruction Devils of this primal chaos void are becoming stronger too. The primal chaos void is also expanding continuously. Even though there is still a slightly longer period, the final apocalypse would still arrive, and everything will have to return back to nothingness. You should properly cultivate and take another step. Only then could you survive the great apocalypse.”
“This disciple will definitely do his best.” World Ancestor said solemnly.
“Reaching your current stage, all external strength is fabricated and useless. Ultimately, you can only depend on yourself.” The thin small old man shook his head. His body soon disappeared.
World Ancestor stood there silently.
He then took a step before leaving the vicinity.
Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World.
In ‘Azure Lightning City’ which spanned half a million kilometers, even though this was a relatively desolate city, the master was an expert at the fourth level and sufficed in lording a territory. Many cultivators had rushed into this city as a result, causing it to flourish.
Within a private room inside a luxurious restaurant.
Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master was currently half-lying there. There were all sorts of delicacies and wine placed on the table in front of him. There were four elegant and refined beauties serving him. Some were massaging him, some were feeding him wine, and some were plucking fruits for him. And in front of him, there were musicians and dancers too. All of them were doing their best to serve this mysterious expert and did not dare to slight him at all.
During the earliest periods, two major killings by this expert generated terror across the highest layer of cultivators in this ‘Azure Lightning City’ towards Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master.
‘It is too difficult to become a Cosmos God.’ Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master had a pair of scarlet eyebrows, and he gave off a murderous aura.
He would occasionally travel around the world in search of an opportunity to break through.
After all, he, Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master, had many treasures. Cosmos Gods were not willing to incur hatred with this undying Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master either. His days were spent quite comfortably, yet being stuck at the pinnacle of Primal Chaos realm made him unbearable.
‘Hmph hmph, when the number of Destruction Devils increased, by then, they will definitely come and seek me for help in searching for golden-armored graded Destruction Devils.’ Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master thought, ‘This is a rare chance for me to slaughter them and earn a huge amount of Origin World Rocks. By then after consuming half the amount, it will nourish my soul and possibly allow me to become a Cosmos God.’
Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master turned over. His gaze viewed through the obstacles of the room. His vision arrived at a white-robed teenager that teleported here. That white-robed teenager directly utilized a huge illusory realm! It was extremely sudden.
The illusory realm covered an immense area. Furthermore, it was genuinely mysterious and unfathomable. In an instant, all beings within the entire city fell into the illusory realm. The beauties, the musicians and the dancers who were originally serving Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master had fallen into it too. This illusory realm naturally covered Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master.
‘This is?’ Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master’s expression slightly changed.
The terrifying illusory realm invaded him.
The world in front had warped and changed. The horrifying energy hauled his soul and tried dragging it into another illusory realm. The moment he fell into it, his life and death would fall under the control of the other party.
“Hmph.” Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master gritted his teeth. His willpower was like a blade as it tore through the illusory realm. But for the sake of resisting against it, he had to spend 70% of his heart energy.
“Mn?” And Xue Ying who had been searching for the Destruction Devils found out a person who could escape from his illusory realm. Nevertheless, he was able to recognize the other party with a glance.
“Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master, please forgive me. I am currently…” Xue Ying had just finished transmitting his message.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying!”
When a roar came.
The entire 50,000 kilometers around that restaurant exploded and turned into nothingness. This was the law domain of Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master.
The 50,000 kilometers area had entirely been destroyed, and Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master stood in midair. Under that pair of scarlet eyebrowed, his cold eyes were staring at the distant Xue Ying: “You are truly arrogant to dare to act against me?”
Xue Ying’s expression changed. It seemed as if a layer of frost had covered his face and Xue Ying stared over at that region of 50,000 kilometers in length.
All living beings within this area had died.
“Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master, aren’t you being too ruthless?” Xue Ying stared at the distant Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master.
“I am here drinking yet you suddenly employed your illusory realm against me?” Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master indignantly roared.
Xue Ying calmly replied: “I am currently conducting the mission assigned by the Cosmos Gods, searching for traces of the Destruction Devils within various places of the primal chaos void. For the sake of preventing the Destruction Devils from escaping after discovering me, I would be employing my illusory realm instantly after appearing at a location. Currently, with your strength, you are able to resist against me illusory realm easily, so there hasn’t been any damage down to you, why the need to kill all these innocent ordinary cultivators?”
“I want to kill them, so I killed them. Why? Feeling angry?” Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master coldly laughed, “Then let Forefather Tian Yu and Swordmaster come and find me!”
Xue Ying was becoming angrier as he listened.
He always hated this Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master…
The other party was strong, yet he demanded a massive sum of Origin World Rocks just to search for Destruction Devils. Otherwise, he was not willing to do anything. One had to know that the Destruction Devils sought to annihilate the entire world, and according to logic, every single cultivator should be doing their part in dealing against this.
He, Xue Ying, might have cultivated for only a short period, but more than 99% of his time was spent searching for the Destruction Devils. He would occasionally meet Cosmos Gods when employing his illusory realm, yet none of them would blame him. Instead, they understood what Xue Ying was doing.
‘This Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master.’ Xue Ying disliked the other party in the past, but now, just because of this minor matter, even after Xue Ying explained to him what had happened, Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master had decided to kill all beings within the region of 50,000 kilometers.
He was entirely a huge devil. Xue Ying would undoubtedly kill the other party if he could!
It’s a pity that Xue Ying could not do so. Even Cosmos Gods could not because there were only two cultivators who succeeded in cultivating the Myriad Realm Tavern Master lineage. One was Myriad Realm Tavern Master, and the other was Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master. None was able to find where his avatars were. This enemy who was unkillable was someone Xue Ying felt helpless about too.
“You offended me, yet you do not know how to pay me for it.” Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master coldly laughed. His killing intent was becoming thicker.
“Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master, I was ignorant, and do seek your forgiveness.” Xue Ying was enduring the fire in his heart. Even though he despised the other party, he decided to remain peaceful with him. After all, there was no point in becoming enemies with an undying madman.
“You think just by saying a sentence and everything will be fine?” Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master coldly laughed, “You either take out 10,000 Origin World Rocks as an offer of apology, and we will let this matter be bygones. Otherwise, hmph hmph…”
