Chapter 989: Dissipation of Soul
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Xue Ying was afraid the other party would search his soul directly. That would mean he no longer had sufficient time to properly arrange everything. Regardless of what matter it was–leaving behind a diagram of Monarch Nine Cloud’s absolute art or informing the Cosmos Gods about the spatial markings leading to the golden-armored graded lairs, everything required time. Fortunately, Sacred Master was extremely patient.
“How is this wine of mine?” Sacred Master chuckled as he sat cross-legged on the black stone bed.
“It is good wine. I have drunk many good wines in my life, but this wine by Sacred Master is absolutely qualified to be the first.” Xue Ying said. He was not lying.
Sacred Master smiled: “This wine can only be drunk from my place. It was available during the earliest period in the primitive Ancient Sacred World, and now, it has fallen into my hands. Every cup I drank is one cup less. Alright, now that you have drunk the wine, it is time for you to speak.”
He had already obtained the fundamental cultivation techniques belonging to the lineage of Myriad Realm Tavern Master and Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master.
But he could not deduce the Destructive Realm Teleportation technique, the avatar or void-ification technique at all. He even knew that their lineage had a ‘Great Destructive Realm Teleportation technique’, and those techniques were making him green with envy! He felt that this junior cultivator, Xue Ying, had a talent so great that he could deduce the Destructive Realm Teleportation technique. The moment he learned it, with his current realm and/or by following down the direction what the other party thought, Sacred Master was confident he could deduce other techniques himself too.
“Sacred Master is quite sincere.” Xue Ying said, “But Sacred Master must remember your promise.”
“Rest assured. Your life isn’t worth me going against my promise. I will not only let you off, but I will also even bestow upon you with a secret treasure that is much better than the one you currently have.” Sacred Master chuckled, “Perhaps these secret treasures might be significant to other Cosmos Gods, but they aren’t worth much to me.”
“I naturally believe it.” Xue Ying said.
At the same time, within the soul in his body.
A scarlet energy that was condensed from the Realm Heart Order existed. It was truly mysterious and unfathomable. Xue Ying could not expel it from his soul at all. Just this minor technique the other party left behind had rendered Xue Ying entirely helpless. One could see how powerful that mysterious existence ‘Yuan’ was.
‘Time to activate it.’ Xue Ying had mixed feelings about this.
He cultivated for just a short trillion years before grasping two ninth level techniques. If he could, Xue Ying would definitely not choose this path of reincarnation.
The future was hard to predict. Even though Xue Ying told his wife that he would certainly be coming back, would this ‘Realm Heart Order’ be a scheme? Would there be an issue during the process of transporting from this primal chaos void into the other vast world? How was the current situation over in the supposed ‘Realm Heart Great Land’? Xue Ying was ignorant of everything. If the Realm Heart Order were a scheme, he would be sending himself to the hands of the other party.
But now, he no longer had the choice!
After all, this was the best option for him–at least better than leaving his fate in the hands of Sacred Master.
‘Jing Qiu, I’ll definitely be back. Yu’er, Qing Yao, I wonder how much change I would see in the two of you when I return.’
‘Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master, Myriad Realm Tavern Master, was it the two of you who plotted against me this time?’
‘Sacred Master… the vengeance of my teacher hasn’t been avenged!’
Xue Ying thought.
Actually, he had another harsher path which he could take, and that would be to pass the Destructive Realm Teleportation technique to Sacred Master! Xue Ying believed that with the status of Sacred Master, he would really just send Xue Ying off and even bestow upon Xue Ying with a huge treasure. It’s a pity that Xue Ying would never select this path.
With a thought.
Even though the scarlet energy could not be expelled, a single thought was all it took to activate it. It went along the wishes of Xue Ying, tunneling into his soul all for the sake of this moment of ‘activation’.
The scarlet energy wrapped around a strand of pure true spirit, dying it red. Xue Ying’s humanoid soul soon began dissipating away like sand.
And the original scarlet energy similarly disappeared.
Sacred Master was looking forward to it as he sat on his black stone bed. Previously, he was afraid that Xue Ying would rather die than to speak. But now, it seemed that the other party’s attitude was not bad. He had sealed the soul of Xue Ying so the other party could not suicide. Sacred Master was waiting confidently for Xue Ying to reveal the Destructive Realm Teleportation technique to him.
“Mn?” Sacred Master’s expression slightly changed. That expression which was always warm had suddenly turned solemn and cold.
The energy which he used to seal Xue Ying’s soul gave him the feeling of a brilliant red light emitting from within. This was a mysterious energy that he had never seen before. And closely following that, Xue Ying’s soul completely dissipated.
It was an absolute dissipation of soul, leaving nothing behind.
And the fleshy body of Xue Ying that was seated there drinking still had a smile attached to his face. He still held on to the cup of wine, though not a single wisp of aura could be felt from his soul.
‘How could this be? How did he die?’ Sacred Master felt his heart surging with rage. He did not dare believe it.
Despite sealing Xue Ying’s soul personally, the other party could still suicide in front of his eyes?
Sacred Master had initially planned for the situation should Xue Ying become rebellious; he would apply all kinds of torture that would make the other party beg for death. If this did not work, he would then employ the crudest method–to search the soul! Even Sacred Master could not gain the complete core inheritance with this method, though it was better than getting nothing.
‘Dissipation of the soul? How, how did he achieve that? Could he have some unique soul secret technique?’ Sacred Master felt both anxious and furious. The Destructive Realm Teleportation technique which seemed so close had just flown away! And this Xue Ying had even deliberately cooperated with him, discussing how good the wine was. This entertainment the other party provided infuriated him instead.
‘That’s right. He is currently the strongest cultivator in the illusory realm. Hence, it should be expected that he commands some unique secret technique in the soul aspect, allowing him to suicide even after his soul was sealed by me.’ Sacred Master could only make his conjecture.
After all, he had never seen the Realm Heart Order personally, much less the entire process of its activation.
He still thought that the brilliant red light was a disturbance formed during the utilization of the secret technique.
‘He actually…’ The servants in the palace hall and Master Jia Ming all felt shocked. They were able to see that Xue Ying’s fleshy body was an empty shell. His soul was no longer present.
At this moment, the atmosphere in the palace hall turned oppressive. None dared to speak.
Sacred Master waved his hand.
A gray and dull thunder landed and destroyed the fleshy body of Xue Ying, causing it to dissipate after turn into ashes. Only the 12 Primal Beads Bracelet and several secret treasures were left behind.
“These cultivators, why are they all so foolish. They would rather die and hinder my path. Wait until I control the primal chaos void, by then, I’ll definitely summon all of them again from the primal chaos void and send them to an eternity of torture..” Sacred Master coldly declared.
Outside the Ancient Sacred World, on a sheet of floating stone rubble, Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master’s incarnation was located here. It was currently relying on the black fog spherical holes to spy on the Ancient Sacred world! This scouting technique was something the Sacred Master could not sense.
Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master had been observing the scene within the palace hall of Sacred Master.
‘He actually lowered his head and admitted his defeat and is taking the initiative to hand over the Destructive Realm Teleportation technique? Damn!’ Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master felt indignant after seeing Xue Ying giving in, ‘Truly too soft! And groveling!’
But as he watched on…
His indignance turned into shock.
‘Suicided? He actually succeeded to suicide? Hahaha, it is good that he suicided too. Even though he died without suffering, it is still good that he died!’ Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master revealed a grin. Following that, this incarnation of his stealthily dissipated. Watching the death of Xue Ying’s true body, and how the other party’s fleshy body was struck into ashes, was indeed thrilling for Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master. He felt satisfied.
