Chapter 992: Bitterness
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Very soon, Ancestor Sorcerer, World Ancestor and Blade Emperor got the news. They were all shocked, shocked that the young fellow called ‘Xue Ying’ died just like this! Especially World Ancestor as he was clear his teacher wanted to take Xue Ying as a disciple.
Xue Ying had scoured through more than half the entire Lost World Corridor. Other than the previous golden-armored graded lair, he discovered yet another three more, bringing joy and lament to Ancestor Sorcerer, Blade Emperor, and others.
They did not dare delay any further and waste the effort of Xue Ying.
Ancestor Sorcerer, Void Primogenitor and Blade Emperor immediately teamed up and headed to the Lost World Corridor.
Within the Lost World Corridor.
Void Primogenitor was someone that specialized in ultra-long distance great teleportation. Currently, he had also learned the Destructive Realm Teleportation technique and was naturally having an easier time. Furthermore, his soul and realm was more profound than Xue Ying and was able to ‘see’ a greater area.
“It is over here.” Void Primogenitor personally carried a piece of talisman left behind by Xue Ying which enabled him to easily sense any spatial markings. Using the Destructive Realm Teleportation technique several times, he brought along Ancestor Sorcerer and Blade Emperor along until they arrived at a sealed space.
Within this sealed space.
Void Primogenitor found the spatial marking left behind by Xue Ying.
‘This is the marked space. The golden-armored graded lair is somewhere near here.’ Void Primogenitor began probing around. He sighed. Even though his ultra-long distance great teleportation was able to let him perceive his surroundings, it was too blurred. This ‘Destructive Realm Teleportation technique’ was not only easy to use, but its ability to see the surrounding was also a thousand to ten thousand times better.
Especially when it was at a close distance. The perception was similar to being present at the scene.
“I’ve seen it. But we aren’t in a rush. Let me find the other two spatial markings first.” Void Primogenitor said, “We will act after I confirmed the positions of the three golden-armored graded lairs. The moment we move, we must destroy all three lairs using the fastest speed.”
“Alright.” Ancestor Sorcerer and Blade Emperor both agreed.
Xue Ying spent a trillion years to leave behind these spatial markings. With this guidance, Void Primogenitor had an easier time searching for the lairs. Soon, he confirmed the locations.
Within a golden-armored graded lair, the Destruction Devil who was responsibility guarding the place looked with astonishment as three figures appeared. He had just informed the ‘kings’ when that golden-robed cultivator exploded with endless blade rays. The surging blade rays whistled and destroyed the entire lair space.
In terms of destructive strength, Blade Emperor was the strongest of the three. Naturally, the current Swordmaster could compete with him.
“Time to go to the next one.”
Their speed was rapid. Actually, the reason why Ancestor Sorcerer came along was to prevent the group of ‘kings’ from interfering. Actually, Ancestor Sorcerer and Blade Emperor were sufficient to fight on equal grounds with the ‘kings’ of the Destruction Devils.
“Hua hua hua~” The blade light whistled, striking and destroying the entire lair like a tsunami.
‘It is easy for us to find these places, yet for Xue Ying, he must have been spending his time scouring through the entire corridor. That Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master did not find a single golden-armored graded lair, yet Xue Ying found four one in total. It isn’t easy at all.” Void Primogenitor discovered that despite his high realm, he could only probe around him at a particular distance. Despite his realm, he would have to spend a long time before he could discover all the lairs given how vast the Lost World Corridor was.
If he rested and cultivated after searching for a while, he would have to take an even longer period. For instance, Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master once accepted to be paid a considerable price for this task of searching, yet he wasn’t as conscientious as Xue Ying.
Investigating once per breath was also called investigating. Investigating once every time a cup of tea was brewed would also be called investigating, yet the efficiency was much worse.
“They are destroyed? Three golden-armored graded lairs are destroyed?”
The kings who soon obtained the news fell into a daze. Even the strongest ‘Emperor Jun’ was extremely startled. They had rushed over to one of the golden-armored graded lairs, only to see the entire space destroyed. They looked at it in shock. The surroundings contained shockwaves of the sharp blade light.
“It is Blade Emperor.” Emperor Jun muttered.
“What is going on? What exactly happened to the Cosmos Gods of the cultivators? How were they able to destroy three golden-armored graded lairs consecutively?”
The kings were all shocked. They felt their hearts turning cold.
Because they were clear that the Destruction Devils were absolutely weaker than the cultivators in terms of their peak combative strength. Currently, they only had the strength to ‘protect’, and even if they infiltrated into the world of cultivators, they had to sneak around. They did not have the strength to face the cultivators head-on. The only advantage they had was that their numbers would increase at a faster rate over time.
The lairs would continuously form more Destruction Devils, increasing the chances of ‘kings’ appearing too.
Previously, the destruction of a single golden-armored graded lair made them feel heartache. This time, another three was destroyed.
“We are only left with the final two.”
“With only two golden-armored graded lairs left behind, the emergence of golden-armored Destruction Devils will be much slower. I truly do not know when the third of the fourth lair would appear…” The present kings were starting to panic, “We are most afraid that they might just find out the final two lairs given that they destroyed three consecutive lairs today.”
“Don’t fret so much. The speed of lairs forming will only increase over time.” Emperor Jun muttered, “Currently, they have merely throttled the rate of our emergence, but they can’t block us permanently especially so when the emergence of lairs become so exaggerated that they don’t even have the time to kill us.”
Ancestor Sorcerer, Blade Emperor, and Void Primogenitor all returned. They were currently feeling relaxed as they succeeded in their mission.
“Succeeded?” Forefather Tian Yu and Swordmaster saw the three Cosmos Gods coming back from the distorted void.
“Adding up the three golden-armored graded lairs we found, we still owe Dong Bo Xue Ying 300,000 Origin World rocks right?” Ancestor Sorcerer sighed, “It’s a pity that he has died. But we can’t make use of him unfairly. Everything will be given to his loved ones instead.”
“No rush. They are still quite weak. Giving them too many treasures isn’t a good thing. I’ll arrange everything properly.” Forefather Tian Yu said.
Everyone present nodded.
The stronger the expert, the more they were not willing to owe someone. They felt that they could repay what they owed Xue Ying by directing the rewards to his wife and children instead.
“Mn?” The expressions of Ancestor Sorcerer, World Ancestor, Swordmaster, Blade Emperor, and Forefather Tian Yu changed abruptly. They turned their heads over towards one single direction.
That was where the Ancient Sacred World was located at.
And they had just felt an incomparably horrifying fluctuation.
One had to know how far they were from the target world, yet they could feel the fluctuation from here. What kind of level was this fluctuation at? They felt the shivers thinking about it.
Ancient Sacred World.
Old Monster Stone and Sacred Master had fought to the extent that a massive area around them was shattered. The entire Ancient Sacred World was maintained by an unseen energy. If not for Sacred Master doing his best to protect it, the world would have long been shattered.
A huge black monster was lying in midair. It was the true body of Old Monster Stone.
Currently, a black pillar had penetrated through the scaled abdomen of the black monster, and it came out from the back of his tortoise shell, leaving behind a huge hole.
The huge black figure disappeared, turning into a thin small old man. And in the distant, the black light pillar had condensed into Sacred Master who currently was wearing his black cotton clothing. Sacred Master’s current expression was ugly, and the aura of the thin small old man was slightly weaker.
“You are mad. Truly mad.” The Sacred Master gritted his teeth.
“You have accumulated quite a lot of origin energy for you to injure my origin by burning your Ancient Sacred Incarnation.” The thin small old man muttered.
Sacred Master felt both angry and frustrated. The origin energy of his Ancient Sacred Incarnation had completely been burned. And the result? Just an injury on this old man! “Old Monster Stone, you are currently heavily injured and should only be at about 40-50% of your original condition. You can’t deal against me. Also, this time, even though I might be the one who captured that Dong Bo Xue Ying alive, it is still that little fellow Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master who deliberately leaked the news to me.”
“Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master?” Many scenes floated in the eyes of the thin small old man, ‘Old Monster Stone.
“Right, it is him. How can he be so careless? He must have deliberately leaked the news to me.” Sacred Master said. Previously, he did not mind being made use of. But that was no longer the case. He had suffered from such a significant loss. The biggest trump card he had, the Ancient Sacred Incarnation had been entirely consumed. So how was Sacred Master happy?
He could not kill the other party…
But Old Monster Stone could!
