Chapter 997: Unborn Child
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
‘This is troublesome.’
‘What Yuan said isn’t wrong. The supreme law in the Realm Heart Great Land is different here compared to the law of where I came from! Hence, many of the laws and profound mysteries under this supreme law are different too.’ Xue Ying was annoyed, but he was not worried. Ultimately, all paths would lead to the same destination. Even though the profound mysteries were different, most of their general structures remained similar. There was the supreme law, cosmos laws and Primal Chaos level laws here too…
He still had his bountiful experience, giving him the confidence of his future in cultivation.
‘And this is also a tempering for me. Cultivating using different supreme laws would refine my capabilities. It should greatly increase the chance of me breaking through to the Cosmos God realm.’ Xue Ying thought. The information within the ‘Realm Heart Order’–Yuan had said before, that the foundation was deeper here in the Realm Heart Great Land. Furthermore, cultivating under a different supreme law would be beneficial towards breaking through to the Cosmos God realm.
‘What I specialized is in four Dao paths. The Dao of Mirage, Slaughter, and Ripple have a huge difference in its Dao path here. Only the ‘Void’ Dao remained similar.’ Xue Ying let out a sigh of relief. He believed he would be able to progress in the Dao of Void the fastest, ‘No matter if it is the primal chaos void or the Realm Heart Great Land, the ‘void’ is still an essential component of the two origin worlds. Hence, it is quite logical for the Dao of Void to be similar in both places.’
After perceiving for half a month.
He had raised his comprehension of the void to the Deity realm. This was also because his soul was too weak, considerably slowing his comprehension rate.
‘Time for me to perceive the external world.’ Xue Ying did not dare to spread the fluctuations from his soul out. After all, it would definitely mean his origin was extraordinary given the bloodline of this fleshy body of his.
He merely perceived his surroundings with rapt attention, carefully listening to the sounds in the external world.
“Mother, you should cool down yourself.”
“Is this female servant even here to serve me? She is here to annoy me!”
In the external world within the house.
There was a madam bound in thick gown half-laying there. She could not help but say: “I have declined several times in the past that I do not want a female servant! Yet in the end, the Marquisdom still arranged this female servant over.”
“This is the rules of the Marquisdom. Mother, since you are pregnant, they will naturally send a female servant over. Both our identities are quite low in the Marquisdom, and this female servant will definitely listen to the words from the eldest madam if she is not foolish. Let us endure more and not create a huge affair over this which might rile up the eldest madam. By then, we would be suffering even more. It’s a pity that I am useless, and have barely reached the True God realm, which was why my status is merely slightly better than that of the female servant.” A green-robed girl muttered by the side.
“It isn’t your fault. In the end, it is because I am too weak, and your father is too ruthless.” The madam sighed.
“Father he…” The green-robed girl shook her head too.
These children were very disappointed with their father. Maybe their father might notice them from afar, yet he would definitely not choose not to acknowledge them. After all, these children had never seen their father before.
The courtyard door was suddenly pushed open.
This made both mother and daughter turn their heads over. A female servant was carrying a wooden tray in. She spoke coolly: “Madam, this is the ‘Seventh Dawn Spirit Scented Tea’.”
Both mother and daughter stood up immediately because they were able to see with a single glance–an old man standing outside the courtyard. He was looking coldly into the courtyard.
The madam immediately walked over and received this Seventh Dawn Spirit Scented Tea and drank it with a gulp. This Seventh Dawn Spirit Scented Tea… was something she could never afford to buy even if she saved for her entire life in this Marquisdom. It was specially prepared by the Ardent Fire Marquisdom for every unborn child currently still being nurtured in the womb so that it would become stronger.
“Mn.” Only after the old man saw the madam drink, did he turn around and left.
Only then did both mother and daughter return to the house. The female servant outside the courtyard sneered before leaving; she was too lazy to serve the madam, and totally disdained her since if the other party were not pregnant, this madam’s status would be incredibly low within the Ardent Fire Marquisdom–much lower than the female servants. She wasn’t qualified to be served by servants as such madams were too commonly seen in this vast Marquisdom.
Any son of the Marquis Ardent Fire would have a dozen to several hundred women.
And currently, Marquis Ardent Fire had a total of 36 children. There were even many more grandsons and descendants beneath the family tree. Hence, the direct bloodline under Marquis Ardent Fire was not considered noble. Only those who could reach the Void God realm would have a slightly higher status. As for the many ‘madams’ within, their ranks were naturally much lower. Unless they gave birth to very formidable children–the status of these madams was determined by the sons they gave birth to!
“Yue’er, I find that this ‘Seventh Dawn Spirit Scented Tea’ has a much weaker medicinal efficiency as compared to what the rumors spoke.” Within the house, the madam transmitted, “Ai, your little brother in my stomach is innately weaker, and if the help from the Seventh Dawn Spirit Scented Tea isn’t great, he might not even become a True God after being born! With a weak bloodline, his cultivation in the future will be much weaker.”
“Mother, Eldest Madam will not dare to prevent you from having the Seventh Dawn Spirit Scented Tea, but it is quite easy for her to scheme something else.” The green-robed girl transmitted back.
These words were what she did not dare to speak in public.
“Your little brother should be the 340th child of your father. He is innately weaker, and would likely not have a bright future. Your father would disdain to even give him a look.” The madam shook his head. That time, she was an ordinary girl within the Ardent Fire City. It was only because of appearances that brought her into the Marquisdom. That husband of hers then copulated with her before throwing her aside.
On another side.
“That lowly woman has already drunk the Seventh Dawn Spirit Scented Tea.” The old man respectfully said.
Seated there was a red-robed girl. Her aura was vast, and she was at the Void God Unity realm.
“Mn, this lowly woman is quite fertile. Previously, she gave birth to a daughter, and now, that trash has given birth to another one, and a boy this time.” The red-robed girl coldly chuckled, “But it’s useless. Even if these lowly women gave birth to more, everything would be pointless.”
A shout came from outside.
A middle-aged man ran over with a mischievous smile. He bowed: “Madam, I am currently penniless; I do not have even a single Cosmos Crystal with me.”
“Ying Shan Lie Hu, you only know how to drink and enjoy yourself. You have already spent finished the resources allocated by Marquis Grandpa for you. This is the final bit, so don’t come to seek me for more. There will be no more.” The red-robed girl waved her hand in frustration. A storage wristband was thrown over. After the middle-aged man took it and refined it, he checked through the wristband before walking off with a mischievous smile: “Many thanks, madam.”
That red-robed girl felt angry after looking at her husband.
Her husband was merely at the True God Ruler! He was not even a Void God. It was fortunate that he had been one of few personal sons of Marquis Ardent Fire, and was the second child. Marquis Ardent Fire gave birth to this child when he was slightly weaker, and hence, had quite the sentiments for him. That was why Marquis Ardent Flame arranged a somewhat massive resource for this second son of his.
Marquis Ardent Fire, being a City Master, owned a vast territory, many cavern-dwellings, and shops within the Ardent Fire City.
Furthermore, Marquis Ardent Fire had constructed nine great cities, with each city containing an incarnation of his guarding it! Naturally, the majority of the resources were kept by Marquis Ardent Fire, and he had arranged for part of it to be given away.
“My clan actually made me marry to such trash.” The red-robed girl felt frustrated. She originated from an aristocratic clan, and had a precious status, and was even at the Unity realm! Her bloodline was naturally much purer. Marquis Ardent Fire was clearly sentimental to his second child. He was personally involved in the discussion for this marriage, hoping for someone formidable in the children of the second son to appear.
‘But it is fortunate that he is trashy enough.’ The red-robed girl coldly laughed after that.
Under her husband’s name, there were many shops and territories. He had many resources, which naturally fell into her control after she was married into the family. Furthermore, she had used various ostensible purposes, for instance, father bestowing upon his son, to transfer the resources to her son.
It was only that she was afraid of the sentiment Marquis Ardent Fire had towards her husband, which made her follow along with her husband on the surface.
Within the stomach of the mother.
Xue Ying was concentrating on listening to the voices outside. Hearing the discontent complaints from both his mother and sister, he was able to get some understanding: ‘What, I am the 340th child of my father? A cultivator could actually have so many children?’ Over at his hometown, the stronger the cultivator, the harder it would be to have children. For instance, both he and his wife Jing Qiu had merely given birth to Yu’er and Qing Yao when they were weaker and were still in the material realm. After that, they no longer were able to give birth to any children.
That was kind of mad right?
‘It seems that mother’s status is quite low in this Marquisdom.’ Xue Ying thought. He personally did not mind. Xue Ying was currently controlling his body to absorb the nourishment coming from that Seventh Dawn Spirit Scented Tea. Even though he could slightly move his limbs, and the medicinal efficiency was much weaker, every part he could absorb was one more part. To Xue Ying, it was not difficult for him to become stronger even if there were no external assistance.
‘I should slowly accumulate. I do not know how long I’ll stay in the womb.’ Xue Ying could vaguely feel that he still had quite a long period before being given birth.
