Chapter 1155 – Innermost Joy
“Little fellow, you actually dare to disrupt the affair of this Old Ancestor?” Black Sovereign King spoke. He did not wish to reveal his identity, “A little Primal Chaos cultivator like you shouldn’t be that daring. Tell me, who made you come?”
“Nobody.” Xue Ying replied. Seeing that queer ugly-looking tree and the three black crystals inlaid in it, he chuckled, “This Old Ancestor, would you be so kind as to tell me what this ugly tree is?”
Black Sovereign King felt frustrated.
He was so calm?
And he even mentioned that nobody directed him over?
“A Primal Chaos cultivator like you shouldn’t be that foolish. Since nobody directed you over, why are you sending yourself to death?” Black Sovereign King’s voice was filled with killing intent, “Tell me your real purpose.”
“I’ve said it before, nobody directed me. But I do have a question for you. The neighboring 19 cities have turned into a nightmare for the past 10 million years. The entire Heaven Ancient Union treated it as if nothing has happened. A total of 19 cities! So many beings are dying batch by batch. Who was it that could force the Heaven Ancient Union to treat this as if nothing is happening? I reckon that huge character wouldn’t come deal against me just because I’ve killed two Primal Chaos cultivators right?”
Black Sovereign King sneered: “It doesn’t seem like you are lying. Are you from one of the big clans in the six great ancient nations? It’s fine too since I can see how strong you are and which disciple are you from!”
The moment he finished speaking.
Black Sovereign King suddenly struck out with his hand. His body let out an intense dark light that covered the whole palace, including Xue Ying.
“Receive my move.” Xue Ying also blasted out with his fist.
That punch caused numerous cracks to appear across the entire void. Those cracks engulfed ‘Black Sovereign King’ was hiding amidst the black fog. At that moment, the figure of Black Sovereign King was suppressed by the cracks and immediately shattered.
“What?” Xue Ying was immensely appalled.
I haven’t shown my true strength yet!
Xue Ying had merely begun casting his Bewilderment Technique to influence the other party’s judgment. And he prepared another killing move in the dark, one that could wipe out a Paragon Master! Who would have thought that a single Bewilderment Technique shattered the body of the other party?
‘When did Black Sovereign King become so weak? Was his body so weak? Unless it is merely his Shadow Incarnation?’ Xue Ying had his guesses. When he attempted the 12th stage in the Realm Heart God Palace, Xue Ying had witnessed the Shadow Incarnations of Black Sovereign King! Those Shadow Incarnations had the same aura as the true body. It was impossible to discern between which was real and unreal. Only then could it confuse the enemies.
The combat power of the Shadow Incarnations was very strong too! It was a percentage of the true body! But because they did not have any top-graded secret treasures, they could merely be considered to have a level-two Cosmos God strength. In addition, those Shadow Incarnations did not have sturdy fleshy bodies. Hence, even though Xue Ying deliberately bewildered the enemy, using just 10% of his strength, both parties were not using their secret treasures at all. As such, Xue Ying’s power far surpassed that of the Black Sovereign King! Even 10% of his strength was sufficient to cause the Shadow Incarnation to dissipate.
“Hmph hmph, and you still call yourself an Old Ancestor? Or that someone is directing me?” Xue Ying sneered. He casually grabbed that odd ugly tree and gave it a pull, uprooting it entirely from the ground. The three inlaid black crystals that were originally undulating began slowing down and dimming. Xue Ying then kept everything into his storage treasure.
‘Yi? He watches me uproot the odd tree without doing anything?’ Xue Ying thought, ‘That’s fine too since I can continue onto other cities and destroy their core. I shall see when Black Sovereign King can endure until.’
Killing Black Sovereign King was one of his goals.
Of course, Xue Ying wanted to find out who exactly was so daring to commit such acts too.
“Dissipated. It’s dissipated!”
“The black fog has dissipated!”
Several experts who were observing the disturbances forming in the residence from afar excitedly discovered that the operating array in the underground palace had stopped functioning. Furthermore, the dull black fog which pervaded the world gradually diffused and disappeared–it was becoming milder over time. Several breaths of time later, no black fog could be seen in the entire city any longer.
The city also regained its normalcy.
All the beings that were still alive in the city, began feeling the loosening and disappearance of the shackles influencing their heart realm. Agitation, gloominess, fury–all sorts of impulsive emotions abruptly disappeared. Being creatures of the Realm Heart Great Land, they were Transcendents by birth. Furthermore, those who could still survive until now in the city were relatively powerful in their heart cultivation.
And the sufferings over 10 million years had tempered the heart realm of many cultivators.
Only now did the black fog disappear, and everything went back to normal.
“It has dissipated.”
Even some of the cultivators who were enduring in their meditation room flew out of their houses. Looking up at the clear sky, quite a few cultivators could not help but cry.
They were originally in despair, yet now, they saw hope.
“We can go out. We can leave now!” Many cultivators attempted to fly out of the city.
Some directly shot into the sky.
They could finally fly to incredibly high height.
Some even tried teleporting out of the city and into the external world. Some were so excited that they began guffawing, while some cried tears of joy, kneeling on the ground bawling all their emotions out… cultivators were ultimately lives. Having left the abyss of despair, even those with a stronger heart realm could hardly remain calm from these ripples.
Xue Ying stood amidst the cultivators that were flying all over the place watching this scene with a smile.
Feeling the ecstasy erupting from numerous cultivators made Xue Ying happy: ‘Many cultivators treated the weak as ants. For the sake of their own Dao cultivation, they do not care even if they exterminate the entire world! Is living solely for the sake of cultivation? If the entire universe is destroyed, and there exists just a single person, what meaning is there to live without any rivals or people around you?’
‘Experts were once weak. Everyone is like us, sentient creatures. Those who slaughtered countless sentient creatures for the sake of themselves have become devils! And I, I will kill all devils.’ Xue Ying smiled.
Just like Ancestor Fan.
Ancestor Fan had similarly cultivated in the Mirage and Illusory Realm. He preferred controlling the desire of others, pulling them into an illusory world, controlling the souls of others so that they would treat him as their master.
Xue Ying instead treated everyone equally. Even creatures living in the illusory realm were beings he determined as having emotions and intelligence. They had their own journey in life and were all true living beings! Hence, he had always treated the illusory realm as reality. In his heart, he recognized that Desire, Bewilderment, Slaughter, and Soul were all part of the world. The world was taken as the foundation and everything else would be fused into it.
Xue Ying left the vicinity amidst the jubilation. Those fortunate survivors in this city were incredibly excited. Many amongst them even questioned who had saved them!
Gradually, there was a piece of news that circulated around the place–that it was a black-robed young man who specialized in the Dao of Void that saved this city.
Everyone remembered the appearance of this black-robed young man. These people desired to find out who their ‘benefactor’ was. It’s a pity that they could not find out. It was only after a huge battle that happened later on that led them to find out who this benefactor was! But that was something for the future.
At this moment, Xue Ying arrived in another city. After all, a total of 19 cities in the entire Heaven Wind Nation had been transformed into nightmarish locations, and he merely saved one of them.
Extending his senses through the essence of the void, Xue Ying rapidly located the origin of the disaster in another city.
He directly executed the Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique, appearing above the city before blasting out with a punch on the residence below him! When this fist struck, unseen ripples began spreading out. Wherever the ripples touched began breaking into pieces. “Hong long long”–since the matter of fighting against Black Sovereign King forced him to leak this slight strength of his, there was no need for Xue Ying to hide it anymore. He blasted out with 10% of his strength, causing the entire underground structure beneath the residence to collapse.
The fist of a level-two Cosmos God which specialized in penetrative impact easily destroyed the entire underground structure, causing it to explode.
Once the structure exploded, Xue Ying descended. He directly pulled out that similar ugly odd tree inlaid with three black crystals! As for the two Primal Chaos experts that were responsible for guarding it, they both died when the punch was sent!
It was inevitable. Primal Chaos 10th level experts might be able to survive. As for ordinary Primal Chaos cultivators? They could be wiped simply by a level-two Cosmos God. The gap between them was too big.
In a remote cavern-dwelling deep in the wilderness.
Black Sovereign King sat in a meditation room within this cavern-dwelling. He was looking solemnly at the drawings which appeared before him in midair–there were a total of 19 drawings that defined the core of the 19 cities he was responsible for. Currently, that ‘black-robed young man’ Xue Ying had destroyed two cores of the cities and was heading to the third.
Black Sovereign King did not care about the lives of those Primal Chaos experts since they were people from the Heaven Ancient Union.
“Primogenitor.” Black Sovereign King transmitted, “This mysterious Dao of Void expert disguised himself as a Primal Chaos expert. But currently, it appears the strength he displayed is at the very least, a level-two Cosmos God! Furthermore, he is rapidly destroying the Calamity Origin in each city rapidly. What should we do now?”
Black Sovereign King was apprehensive.
He was afraid that this black-robed young man had an ultra-terrifying identity in one of the powerful organizations within the Myriad Realm Ancient Nation of the Summer Wind Ancient Nation.
“Proceed with caution and unearth his foundation. If there is an unparalleled existence bullying you, I’ll immediately come.” Eternal Night Primogenitor transmitted back.
“Yes.” Having the guarantee from the primogenitor, Black Sovereign King felt fully confident. Previously, he was afraid that this mysterious black-robed young man had a powerful background, and Eternal Night Primogenitor would choose to give him up! But now, Eternal Night Primogenitor mentioned that he would be protecting him. Given the identity of the primogenitor, he would not easily go against what he said.
“I do want to see who are you being your disguise!” The eyes of Black Sovereign King flashed with cold intent. Following that, he disappeared with a ‘sou’.
