Chapter 983: Myriad Tavern Master’s Assassination
Xue Ying’s law domain was established using the structure from the illusory realm. Being the strongest expert in the illusory realm within the primal chaos void, few could permeate into his law domain stealthily! The region surrounding Xue Ying at a distance of 50,000 kilometers would have an unseen law domain covering it just like a real world being wrapped with a layer of illusory realm.
“Hua~” During the moment the enemy struck, Xue Ying’s law domain was also activated.
The surrounding region of 50,000 kilometers immediately became grotesque and variegated. Many layers became distorted. Xue Ying was located at the deepest region with many layers of world stacked on top of one another.
On the surface of the formerly peaceful wilderness, an old man warped out. A wild beast that was initially flying far away had distorted into an old man too. A short tree amidst the desolate wild had also become an old man. Another old man had also appeared from deep underground. Many old men were emerging, with a total of more than a thousand old men killing their way into the law domain.
Their appearances were precisely the same. It seemed as if he did not have a single real body.
“Myriad Tavern Master!” Xue Ying was much shocked.
“I was actually discovered.” Myriad Tavern Master was slightly astonished too. This inheritance belonging to his teacher’s lineage was geared towards the fleshy body. As a result, he could form many avatars, though his attainments in the void were weaker, and had not reached the ‘pinnacle of void-ification’. If he had achieved that, it would be similar to the Destruction Devils that had the shadowless talent, and he could stealthily appear by the side of Xue Ying without the other party discovering him.
There would be losses when there were gains.
He chose this road of owning many avatars, allowing him to not fear for the great apocalypse of the primal chaos void. He was not even afraid when facing a horrifying existence like Sacred Master.
Nevertheless, he was slightly weaker in combat. His junior disciple brother ‘Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master’ chose a path that was stronger in battle, though he was stuck at the Primal Chaos realm.
As Xue Ying discovered the other party, an enormous fiery-red god bird, Vermillion Nightmare, appeared. It began flapping its wings, causing a fiery-red airstream to diffuse around the surrounding. Many illusory realms started descending down the whole region, with every single avatar of Myriad Tavern Master being affected.
‘Even though he has more than a thousand avatars, it seems that every one of them is weak? Even weaker than me?’ Xue Ying muttered inwardly. That’s right too. If every single avatar contained an ordinary Cosmos God power, then Myriad Tavern Master would be unparalleled. In reality, he was never known for his combat power. Even World Ancestor and Ancestor Sorcerer were stronger than him.
His illusory realm might be strong, but Myriad Tavern Master could easily resist against it. Naturally, he had to fork out part of his heart energy to resist against it.
“Kill.” The more than a thousand old men began invading the region of 50,000 kilometers from different positions. Suddenly, every single old man became distorted and blurred.
A huge head that covered the world appeared. It spanned a total of five million kilometers and also enveloped Xue Ying’s illusory realm domain. As he opened his mouth, endless darkness appeared as it sucked in Xue Ying.
“Hua hua hua~”
Many huge black flower buds appeared.
Because Xue Ying had previously absorbed the energy from quite a few dead Destruction Devils–significantly nourishing his soul–he could now unleash eight nine-petaled flowers while maintaining the tenth transformation of Vermillion Nightmare.
Each nine-petaled flower wrapped around another and the white-robed Xue Ying was located at its innermost. Xue Ying had also activated the two secret treasures he had. As the 12 Primal Beads Bracelet was activated, many layers of light stacked around his body. At the same time, the white robe Xue Ying was wearing had emitted a golden light too. There was even blue light on the surface of his body.
Myriad Tavern Master’s enormous head merely sucked in, causing everything in half a million kilometers region to be devoured. The surroundings of Xue Ying fell into darkness, though he was not panicking at all.
He was still under the protection of the two great secret treasures. Furthermore, Xue Ying’s law domain had been entirely activated.
And even under the envelopment of the illusory realm, eight flowers were protecting him too.
“Chi chi chi~” Many strands of white light appeared amidst the darkness as they dealt against the nine-petaled flowers that were protecting Xue Ying. As those strands of white land forced their way over, they penetrated through the layers of world membranes, with 30% of its original might being consumed. Even though the nine-petaled flowers were firm, Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master could easily cut through it, much less this killing move of Myriad Tavern Master who was the leader of the biggest assassination organization in the primal chaos void.
The strands of white light rapidly crossed through the petals of the nine-petaled flowers, causing those flowers to collapse. But at the same time when they collapsed, new nine-petaled flowers were constantly appearing around Xue Ying. Nevertheless, those strands of white light traversed at such rapid speed that in the blink of an eye, it crossed through 11 layers of nine-petaled flowers (with three layers being formed after that).
“Weng.” Xue Ying remained standing there calmly. The 12 layers of light stood firm. Under the assault of the white light, just two layers of light were broken through before the white light dissipated.
“Just with these techniques?” Xue Ying looked at the endless darkness around him.
Even though describing this technique was slow, it happened within an instance.
But Xue Ying had sufficient time to leave with his ultra-long distance teleportation since this killing move could not eliminate him from the start. Hence, Xue Ying was relaxed.
‘The protective secret treasure bestowed by Ancestor Sorcerer and the others is extraordinary.’ Xue Ying thought.
Ancestor Sorcerer and the others had mentioned before.
Only Sacred Master could rapidly break through the protection of the 12 Primal Beads Bracelet.
As for Myriad Tavern Master? Xue Ying felt that he could still survive from this wave of killing move even if he did not rely on his secret treasures! Naturally, believing it was one thing. He would not remain so foolish to not use the two secret treasures.
“Hua.” An old man appeared amidst the surrounding endless darkness. He was Myriad Tavern Master.
“This is the secret treasure newly refined by Ancestor Sorcerer?” Myriad Tavern Master looked at the 12 layers of light on the surface of Xue Ying. After crossing through the illusory realm worlds and the nine-petaled flowers, only 60% of the original strength of his killing move was left! Myriad Tavern Master understood that he would take some time trying to break through the light films after feeling its strength. Furthermore, this killing move of his required time to store. He had already stored enough energy when he was hiding in the dark to unleash this single wave of assassination move.
Xue Ying would have long used his Destructive Realm Teleportation technique to escape when Myriad Tavern Master charged up his attack after the first failure of the assassination.
Hence… Myriad Tavern Master understood that he failed.
“Right.” Xue Ying nodded.
“Seems like Ancestor Sorcerer and the others favor you a lot.” Myriad Tavern Master said, “Let me ask you, where did you learn this Destructive Realm Teleportation technique of yours?”
“Ancient cultivation talent.” Xue Ying said.
“Impossible.” Myriad Tavern Master shook his head, It is impossible for this talent to be bestowed by the supreme law.”
“Oh? Is that so? Unless you all have grasped the supreme law and are so certain of it?” Xue Ying retorted.
Myriad Tavern Master was startled.
Grasped the supreme law?
Let’s not talk about him, even his teacher, the creator of this lineage had not reached that stage. It was too difficult trying to grasp the supreme law.
‘What this Dong Bo Xue Ying said is logical too. Without grasping the supreme law, maybe what teacher deduced is not right too? Unless there is really an ancient cultivation talent that has this Destructive Realm Teleportation technique?’ Myriad Tavern Master thought, ‘But the possibility of deducing something wrong is very low once one cultivated to where Teacher is.’
Previously, he felt that Xue Ying could have deduced this teleportation technique after stealing the fundamental technique from their lineage. Or he might have learned it from Monarch Nine Cloud. But now, he felt that there existed a tiny possibility–that it was indeed from an ancient cultivation talent!
The supreme law was ultimately too hard to comprehend.
“Many thanks to Myriad Tavern Master for letting me experience your assassination.” Xue Ying chuckled. The void by the side distorted and he disappeared after taking a step through.
Within the wilderness.
Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master was watching everything from afar. Following that, the disturbances had died down, and an old man appeared by his side.
“Senior disciple brother.” Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master looked at the old man.
“Failed.” The old man shook his head.
