Chapter 998: Activating the Bloodline
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Being someone who personally created two techniques at the ninth level, and an expert who could fight with Cosmos Gods, Xue Ying had made his decision after feeling the laws and profound mysteries present in the Realm Heart Great Land.
‘I’ve heard from my mother saying that the talent of the infant currently in her stomach is weaker?’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly, ‘Who would have thought that my current lifeforce that is comparable to World Deities as an unborn child is considered weak? Furthermore, this mother has a meager status in the Marquisdom, and she is weak too. Her scope of experience should be quite limited. Since she mentioned about the unborn child in her stomach is weak, then it is truly weak.’
‘This Marquisdom actually prepared some spiritual medicine for every unborn child. Clearly, they pay a lot of attention on the bloodline of infants given birth. Since that’s the case, I must be outstanding enough when I am given birth! I should become a ‘child of the heaven’ when I come to this world, attracting enough attention such that the Marquisdom will nurture me with its entire strength. After that, they should be able to understand when I become talented enough in the future.’ Xue Ying made his decision.
He had to make himself become a ‘child of the heaven’.
‘Out of the four Dao paths which I am most familiar with, the most similar path is the ‘Void’ between the primal chaos void and the Realm Heart Great Land. Cultivating the Void would be ten or a hundred times simpler.’ Xue Ying nodded inwardly, ‘I shall choose it then.’
Furthermore, Xue Ying had discovered one point. He had many hidden bloodlines within his body, and each had their own specialties. Clearly, they were all passed down from his ancestors. There were even a total of 11 void-related bloodlines, though they seemed quite weak. The most formidable bloodline within these 11 was actually bloodline belonging to a Cosmos God.
Even though it was slightly weaker, it was not a problem to Xue Ying at all!
‘Judging by the bloodline in my body, it seems the forefather of this lineage of mine should gear towards fire.’ Xue Ying thought, ‘It’s a pity that I am not good at the Dao of fire. I shall choose the void bloodline of that Cosmos God ancestor then!’
‘It is decided.’
Xue Ying made his decision. According to his bloodline, it seemed that he was separated by a few generations from this Cosmos God, resulting in a diluted bloodline left in his body.
Day passed by day. Month passed by month.
The unborn child in the stomach gradually became stronger. Naturally, he had broken through the World Deity realm. His soul became stronger, allowing Xue Ying to cultivate faster and allowing his comprehension of the void bloodline to grow deeper. Xue Ying’s realm was ultimately too profound. Hence, he could cultivate with blazing speed. Nevertheless, he was absorbing the world energy outside very gently. Even though it was gentle, Xue Ying was absorbing it constantly, perfectly fusing the incoming world energy into his body and allowing it to grow stronger.
‘It has been three years. Why do I find that it is still too early before I will be given birth?’ Xue Ying felt puzzled, ‘How long do I have to stay in my mother’s stomach?’
Within a desolate courtyard inside the Ardent Fire Marquisdom.
There was only a disobedient female servant serving her madam. Rong Xing Lan was feeling quite delighted recently because she saw hope.
“It seems that my child is growing very quickly.” Rong Xing Lan caressed her stomach. She could feel the aura of the unborn child becoming stronger, “He should be a stage three World Deity currently.”
“Mother, that time, I was only given birth after 15 years in your stomach. It seems the talent of my little brother is much higher, and he should stay in it for a longer period.” The green-robed girl by her side was filled with expectations. Every disciple with a high status within the Ardent Fire Marquisdom would have a bunch of madams, and the disciples were even brothers and sisters related by blood, yet none would greet each other when they met. There was not really any strong relationship between them.
Instead, it was the children that belonged to the same mother that had a stronger relationship. Due to the presence of a secret technique, it was considered normal for a woman to give birth to two to three powerful children in her lifetime.
“Mn, from how I see, your little brother might stay in my stomach for more than 50 years or even 80 years.” The eyes of Rong Xing Lan were bright. She could see hope in her future after living half a life in mediocrity, “He will be nourished and become more perfect. I can even drink more Seventh Dawn Spirit Scented Tea.”
A bowl of Seventh Dawn Spirit Scented Tea would be sent every year.
The longer the unborn child stayed in the mother’s stomach, the more Seventh Dawn Spirit Scented Tea he would drink. The Marquisdom would be delighted to provide more since the longer the child remained in the stomach, the higher his potential and bloodline. Those who were given birth as True God in the history of the Ardent Fire Marquisdom had been nourished in the stomach for 100-200 years. They came out as Rulers.
Within Southern Cloud Nation, in other aristocratic clans, some infants remained in the stomach of the mother for several hundred years before coming into this world as Void Gods! Only the most talented Void Creatures in the primal chaos void where Xue Ying originated from would be given birth as Void Gods.
‘The moment your little brother comes out, he should be a True God. He would be able to cultivate even faster.” The madam ‘Rong Xing Lan’ caressed her stomach. Currently, her face was brimming in brightness.
During the ninth year.
Rong Xing Lan was shocked as she noticed the aura in her stomach grew to another level–True God realm!
“He became a True God?” Rong Xing Lan felt exceptionally excited, “It seems that the bloodline in my son is extremely formidable.”
Even though his father, Ying Shan Lie Hu was trash, being the son of Marquis Ardent Fire, he was only at the True God Ruler realm. Nevertheless, the mother Rong Xing Lan was weaker–just a World Deity.
According to logic, their children would be weak. But sometimes, there might be an era transcendent appearing since it was possible for bloodlines to be activated after being passed down.
From how Rong Xing Lan sees, her son should clearly have an extraordinary bloodline.
“Madam, this is the Seventh Dawn Spirit Scented Tea sent over by the Marquisdom.” It was another year, and the Seventh Dawn Spirit Scented Tea was sent over by the female servant. The female servant carried a wooden tray over, and a cold old man was standing outside the courtyard doors.
“My mother is slightly weaker, so please send it in.” The green-robed girl went out and shouted.
“Drink it outside the courtyard” The cold old man ordered. The Seventh Dawn Spirit Scented Tea had to be drunk by any madams conceiving a child. That was the rule of the Marquisdom! As the statuses of the girls in the Marquisdom were very low, they could never afford to purchase a bowl of Seventh Dawn Spirit Scented Tea even if they saved up for their entire life. If these Seventh Dawn Spirit Scented Tea were not drunk by the madams, they might just sell it instead.
Hence, the elders must see them drink the tea personally!
Even though Rong Xing Lan was not willing, she still came out. Furthermore, she had swiftly come out to gulp down the Seventh Dawn Spirit Scented Tea before immediately entering the house after that.
“Stand still.” The cold old man shouted.
Rong Xing Lan trembled.
The expression of that cold old man changed slightly before he turned and left.
Rong Xing Lan and the green-robed girl were standing side by side as they watched the cold old man leave. Anxiety had appeared on their faces.
“Things are slightly troublesome. They have discovered it.” The green-robed girl transmitted.
“I knew I could not hide it the moment I come out. That old man will definitely discover it.” Rong Xing Lan gritted her teeth. The difference in aura between a World Deity and a True God was huge. Furthermore, the unborn baby in her stomach had reached the True God realm, and Rong Xing Lan was merely a World Deity! It was impossible for her to conceal the aura at all.
“Would eldest madam act?” The green-robed girl felt worried.
“I am not afraid! The Marquisdom pays huge attention to every single infant under the direct bloodline. The moment she acts, it will be a great offense!” Rong Xing Lan gritted, “Furthermore, I will protect my son even if I die.”
She was Rong Xing Lan. Half her life was spent as a commoner.
Previously, she was an ordinary weak little girl within the Ardent Fire City. After being captured away by that disciple of an aristocratic clan with high status, she could only endure and swallow her grievances. She had to tolerate even if she was bullied by the eldest madam. Nevertheless, this was the first time she revealed her weak little fangs in her life all for the sake of protecting this child of hers which had a bright future. None was permitted to destroy her child!
