Chapter 990: The Death of Dong Bo Xue Ying
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Lost World Corridor.
Within a bright space inside it, all kinds of color could be seen streaming within, creating a spectacular scene of a rainbow. Xue Ying’s incarnation stood here watching: ‘This is truly beautiful. Even after roaming around the Lost World Corridor for more than a trillion years, I still find this void to be dazzling.’ After that, this incarnation of his stealthily dissipated. His energy returned to the world. And the incarnation that was seated cross-legged in another sealed place similarly dispersed without alerting anyone.
The Mirage City that was one of the 13 primal chaos cities of the Great Void Heaven Temple had been constructed after Xue Ying broke through to the Primal Chaos realm.
This place was had tight security; Xue Ying’s incarnation would remain here in sleep while being prepared to awake and protect this place should an emergency happen.
Nonetheless, at this moment, that slumbering incarnation dissipated. It turned into many spots of light before returning to the world.
“The incarnation of Dong Bo Palace Master has dissipated!”
“The incarnation of Dong Bo Palace Master has dissipated!”
The protective array spirit within Mirage City was startled. He hurriedly reported upwards.
The dissipation of the incarnation of a hall master was a huge matter. This news immediately reached the two palace masters of the Great Void Heaven Temple–Forefather Tian Yu and Swordmaster.
Forefather Tian Yu and Swordmaster both teleported into the cavern-dwelling of Xue Ying almost simultaneously. They arrived by the side of Jing Qiu. Jing Qiu was currently looking ahead in a daze. Moments ago, Xue Ying was still smiling at her, yet he soon dissipated, turning into spots of light. Even though she had cultivated for a very long period, Jing Qiu still felt her heart being torn apart.
The dissipation of soul…
Even Cosmos Gods would die without a doubt. Her husband had mentioned that the Realm Heart Order would allow him to reincarnate into another colossal world. Was it real? Would he come back? Jing Qiu felt chaotic. Tears could not help but form in her eyes.
“Yu Jing Qiu, where is Xue Ying?” Forefather Tian Yu hurriedly asked. Swordmaster was similarly anxious.
“He died.” Jing Qiu said.
“What happened? What exactly happened?” Forefather Tian Yu and Swordmaster did not dare believe it. Actually, they had some conjectures after seeing the dissipation of the incarnation protecting the Mirage City. But Xue Ying was strong, and had the protection from his secret treasures, so how did he die? In the eyes of the two Cosmos Gods, Xue Ying had the highest potential amongst the hall masters of the Great Void Heaven Temple. He cultivated for a short period before grasping two ninth level techniques. They were certain Xue Ying would be the third Cosmos God in the near future! And that was a day both of them looked forward to.
But everything happened too quickly! The two of them did not even know what to do.
“He has been captured alive by Sacred Master, who forced Xue Ying to do something. Xue Ying had a secret soul technique and chose to suicide, resulting in the dissipation of his soul.” Jing Qiu flipped her hand and passed the storage wristband which appeared there to Forefather Tian Yu, “Forefather, this was what Xue Ying left for you.”
Forefather Tian Yu received it over. He rapidly checked through.
In the wristband, there was information attached to it. Forefather Tian Yu immediately received the message after receiving it, and soon understood everything that had happened.
“… as long as you rely on the treasures, you would be able to sense the spatial markings as you get close to it. You would be able to find three golden-armored graded lairs that are marked by me. I still hope for Forefather to forgive Xue Ying for being selfish. Previously, I hadn’t spread this Destructive Realm Teleportation technique and had kept it a secret. It’s just that Xue Ying’s comprehension ability wasn’t sufficient, and had only grasped the first diagram out of the four-diagrams absolute art of Monarch Nine Cloud. The other three diagrams could temporarily not be imparted. This ‘Destructive Realm Teleportation technique’ must never be passed down. Sacred Master has always sought to have this secret technique…”
The message left behind made Forefather Tian Yu heartache.
Dao could not be imparted so easily to others. Did the lineage of Myriad Realm Tavern Master and Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master not regard this inheritance as highly, and kept it a secret without spreading it? Xue Ying did not grasp many absolute arts, and even if he were unparalleled, he would not spread them so easily either.
Much less how vital this ‘Destructive Realm Teleportation technique’ was. If it were spread out, even if it were spread to three to five people, the news would easily be leaked, and the moment Sacred Master knew about it, Xue Ying would die.
Despite how vigilant Xue Ying was, he still died because of this Destructive Realm Teleportation technique in the end!
“So it seems it was not a coincidence that you discovered the golden-armored graded lair in the past, and you had been searching for it all the time. Currently, you had traveled more than half the entire Lost World Corridor and found another three golden-armored graded lairs?” Forefather Tian Yu felt real pain in his heart.
He really liked this junior descendent Xue Ying.
There were all sorts of cultivators.
Like Ancestor Devil who originated from the same hometown as Xue Ying, he had constructed the Dark Abyss and believed absolutely in the strong feasting on the weak. If not for the restriction of the Great Void Heaven Temple, he would undoubtedly become someone even more wicked! As for the other cultivator, ‘Swordmaster’, he might be better, but he was still too proud and aloof. He belonged to the same era as Ancestor Devil, and in the end, he merely restricted Ancestor Devil and not killed him.
Swordmaster had always remained in closed-door cultivation after coming to the Great Void Heaven Temple. He focused more on getting stronger!
But Xue Ying was different. He had a similar personality with Void Primogenitor.
Ever since he reached the ‘My Heart as the World’ realm, Xue Ying had never retreated from his responsibility.
He could always focus entirely on his cultivation, yet he had arranged his incarnations to seek for golden-armored graded lairs and arranged incarnations to pursue the Destruction Devils. This had indeed affected the efficiency of his cultivation, and there weren’t many who were willing to conduct such miscellaneous tasks. How long had Xue Ying cultivated for? He spent practically 99% of his time doing these minor tasks.
If Xue Ying had not done these, he would not be employing the illusory realm over at many locations nor teleport using his ultra-long distance teleportation! He would not be discovered by ‘Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master’. With how vast the primal chaos void was when Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master discovered Xue Ying, he might just have become a Cosmos God!
“Have a look.” Forefather Tian Yu passed the wristband to Swordmaster, allowing him to examine it too.
And in another location.
Within an extremely secretive void gap within the primal chaos void, there was a relatively unique mountain peak. The body of the mountain was filled with golden lights streaming here and there.
A thin small old man was standing on a piece of great rock. Around this rock was flowing with dull green liquid. This stone gently rose and fell along with the wave.
“I finally found this God Peak. I still thought that it would have been destroyed after the previous apocalypse of the origin world.” This thin small old man held onto a walking stick. He was thin like a bag of bones, and at this moment, he was smiling so much that his eyes were shining, “The God Peak. It is one of the most appropriate opportunities that I plan to give that Dong Bo brat. He specializes in the illusory realm extremely much, and this God Peak will definitely be a place for him to grow greatly!”
“Now that I have arranged the God Peak, the next place will be the ‘Origin Dreamland’. That time I had created the dreamland cultivation technique. But ever since the shatter of the primitive Ancient Sacred World, it became tough to enter the Origin Dreamland. But I still have to think of ways.” This thin small old man was pondering. He then chuckled, “Hmph hmph, for the sake of this disciple, I have spent quite a lot of effort. I would like to see how you return the gratitude in the future, Dong Bo brat.”
This thin small old man immensely appreciated Xue Ying.
In the past, he had put Xue Ying to test several times in the dark. Even though he felt that this young fellow was too benevolent to the weaker cultivators, causing himself to suffer, overall, the old man was still quite satisfied with Xue Ying! Xue Ying was definitely not an ingrate and would respect his teacher. One had to know that he did not have high demands for his disciples. He did not even care that World Ancestor had spread the Dao, causing many devouring devils to appear.
Of course, he did not have any strong opinion regarding Xue Ying’s attitude towards the weak. He only felt that this disciple whom he was about to take in would live a bitter life.
This was the only disciple whom he would be receiving that had the highest accomplishment in the ‘Vermillion Nightmare inheritance’, and the only disciple who specialized in the soul aspect. He was quite serious about receiving Xue Ying as a disciple. In the past, he was quite carefree about taking Black Emperor and World Ancestor as disciples since he personally had reached a profound realm in the fleshy body aspect. But now, given that the soul aspect was his weakness, he began harboring hope for himself in this ‘disciple-to-be’ of his.
“Mn?” Suddenly, the expression of that thin small old man changed.
