Chapter 1163 – I should do it
Even though Southern Cloud King was informed that Xue Ying was suspected of killing that Dust Brahman King, the thought of ‘Xue Ying killing Black Sovereign King’ had been thrown to the back of his mind the moment it appeared. He was clear how difficult it was to kill a Paragon Master before Eternal Night Primogenitor came to save him!
Black Sovereign King was an existence that Dust Brahman King could not compete with.
Across the entire Realm Heart Great Land, the number of people who could do this, other than the unparalleled existences, could be counted with two hands. Even he, Southern Cloud King, could only achieve it within his capital.
“It is I who killed him.” Xue Ying nodded with a smile. He did not plan on hiding the fact after taking out Black Sovereign King’s weapon.
“You, how did you do it? How could it be possible?” Southern Cloud King did not dare believe it.
“I broke through in the Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm to level-two Cosmos God Realm. Teacher, you should know how precious it is a level-two Cosmos God Mirage Scripture is.” Xue Ying answered.
After selling it to Emperor Summer and the others, they requested for the news of him reaching level-two Cosmos God Realm in the Mirage to be kept a secret until they finished gathering the Chaotic Origin Sand. That was done to prevent any aftereffects.
“Mirage and Illusory Realm? You broke through?” Southern Cloud King was both stunned and enlightened at the same time, “You sold it to the Summer Wind Ancient Nation?”
“Yes.” Xue Ying nodded.
“Don’t sell it at such a low cost.” Southern Cloud King reminded, “This scripture is something both Ancestor Fan and Towering Sky King are willing to fork out a huge price to get. Ultimately, this implicates their path of cultivation Dao! Even various ancient nations pay great attention to soul-related scriptures because nobody in the Realm Heart Great Land has a scripture that could guide one to the final realm.”
“Mn, I sold it at quite an appropriate price. Of which I exchanged for the ‘Void Fire Lotus Flower’ which is extremely suitable for me. After researching in this weapon for a period, I was able to create some killing moves alongside this top-graded weapon. By relying on one of them, I succeeded in killing the Black Sovereign King.” Xue Ying replied.
Southern Cloud King was both jealous and surprised as he listened.
Void Fire Lotus Flower…
He felt envious listening to it!
But he was clear that the number of top-graded weapons in Realm Heart Great Land that could be used to easily kill Black Sovereign King was pitiful.
“Xue Ying, I wouldn’t have thought that you could grow so fast. I bet your strength is most likely beyond mine now.” Southern Cloud King stared at the saber emitted a dark aura, “This weapon is extremely famous. There is almost none who is willing to exchange a top-graded weapon for cosmos crystals! If we were to value this weapon of Black Sovereign King, then it should be around 300 billion cosmos crystals! Those materials you require cost approximately 170 billion cosmos crystals, leaving behind quite a lot of change! What else do you need? If you don’t want anything, I can simply pay you with the cosmos crystals.”
Southern Cloud King wasn’t willing to take such a huge advantage over his disciple.
“Teacher, that time you bestowed me the Devil Emperor Gown without asking for anything.” Xue Ying answered.
“That was a fair exchange in accordance with your help in protecting my Southern Cloud Sacred Religion.” Southern Cloud King chuckled, “Alright. Everyone knows that the most wealthy Paragon Master in the entire Realm Heart Great Land is your teacher. I do not want to take advantage of this bit of benefits. To me, 300 billion cosmos crystals aren’t sufficient in purchasing such a secret treasure at all.”
Xue Ying pondered momentarily before taking out another scroll. At that moment, many words started floating on the scroll. Xue Ying was recording down a large number of materials that he needed.
“These materials require approximately 100 billion cosmos crystals.” Xue Ying passed over the new scroll to his teacher, “It shall be enough for Teacher to help me gather them. Also, that weapon of Black Sovereign King must not be publicized temporarily. Otherwise, many others might suspect that Teacher or I was the murderer.”
If Southern Cloud King dared to publicize this saber, it would incur a lot of suspicions from all over the place. Because he, Southern Cloud King, and Xue Ying were both level-two Cosmos God experts in the Dao of Void.
“Alright. Then I shall take this little advantage over you. As for the saber? Haha, I am not in a rush. I believe that there will definitely be an opportunity for me in the future to use it in exchange for some benefits I need. As for you, Xue Ying, it is quite impossible to hide your strength once you become strong. You will ultimately have to reveal your strength to the world.” Southern Cloud King turned to Xue Ying, “By then, Eternal Night Primogenitor will know about it. What are your plans? You should understand that with the temper of Eternal Night Primogenitor, you have given him a tight slap on his face. He’ll definitely not let you off so easily.”
“Let him be.” Xue Ying indifferently replied.
Southern Cloud King saw this and asked: “Are you confident of fighting against him?”
Since Xue Ying could easily kill Black Sovereign King, he should be confident of surviving before unparalleled existences.
“I am confident of keeping myself alive.” Xue Ying stated.
Southern Cloud King nodded softly. He then frowned and asked: “I can understand why you killed Black Sovereign King since you had a huge grievance and enmity with him. For him to cut off your path of cultivation in the Realm Heart God Palace, this is a huge enmity that has to be avenged! But… why did you kill Dust Brahman King? He should have no animosity with you, right? And that 19 cities were obviously under the observation by Eternal Night Primogenitor yet you went on to save them regardless? Unless you really have a thing against evil?”
This disciple of his had asked for all information from the Southern Cloud Sacred Religion intelligence network regarding any large massacres and large disasters.
This made Southern Cloud King feel that this disciple of his seemed to really hate evil?
“That is something I should do.” Xue Ying smiled.
“You should do?” Southern Cloud King was stunned, “What do you mean you should do? You weren’t like this in the past.”
“The reason why I was different in the because is because I was weak. If I chose to foolishly slaughter the devils, I would have died by now.” Xue Ying explained, “With great strength comes great responsibility. Since I have reached this realm, I would naturally not just watch and let things happen before my eyes. Hence, I chose to do what I should be doing.”
Southern Cloud King became taciturn for a while.
He slightly understood it.
This was a belief that originated from his heart. It was also the ‘Dao Heart’ of Xue Ying.
“Do you know you will get really tired if you continue on like this?” Southern Cloud King mentioned.
“Tired? Why would I be tired?” Xue Ying shook his head with puzzlement, “To me, doing such things is easy. Cultivation is ultimately about tempering oneself in battles. I am merely killing any devils I find! And seeing those cultivators escaping from despair and becoming rave with joy makes me feel happy too. To me, doing such things makes me feel happy and satisfied.”
A cultivator had to hold fast to it and put it into practice!
“Alright, it is I who is wrong. I feel that this would be very tiring. But to you, doing it gives you great joy and satisfaction.” Southern Cloud King shook his head, “But Xue Ying, as you cultivate, your level of life would continually increase. By then, seeing the weak is really akin to seeing ants! Just like how those ‘Chaotic Origin Beings’ who have jumped out of the cage into the higher dimension also view us cultivators trapped in the cage as ants. And to us, those weak World Deities and True Gods are ants as well. There is no need for you to refute it. With a single breath, you could kill countless of them. Aren’t they just ants?”
As Xue Ying listened, he immediately understood that his teacher, Southern Cloud King, knew quite a lot regarding ‘Chaotic Origin Beings’.
“Ants?” Xue Ying asked, “Even though we are Cosmos Gods, we had grown up from a weak child, experiencing countless trials before reaching where we are! Now that we have become Cosmos Gods, do we treat out weak past selves as ants too? Cultivators must never forget about their roots!”
“This isn’t about forgetting our root. This is a rise in cultivation.” Southern Cloud King retorted, “The path of cultivation is difficult. Many cultivators have fallen as they encounter all kinds of difficulties! It isn’t easy for us to reach where we are now. Talent is important. Opportunities are important. Cultivation heart is important. And some luck is definitely a must! It is honestly too difficult to reach where we are currently, so why draw in more danger to yourself for the sake of those weak cultivators? And increase the uncertainty of survival? They have their own path, so just let them be.”
“If I don’t do it, those weak cultivators do not even have the chance to fight.” Xue Ying shook his head, “The path of cultivation is filled with countless difficulties, but large-scale massacres aren’t a form of difficulty or a trial. It is destroying the balance in the entire cultivation world! If everyone only looks after their own hide, then the weak would definitely die. Those who are strong have to take responsibility for this!”
“When I was weak, I could take a step back.”
“But now that I am strong, I naturally have to stand forward.” Xue Ying said.
“But you do know that you will eventually offend enemies that are stronger and stronger.” Southern Cloud King could not help but say, “You do not that before the First War of the Ancient Nation, Emperor Summer isn’t recognized as the strongest cultivator in the entire Realm Heart Great Land. Instead, it is another existence.”
Xue Ying nodded: “I know. He is Undying Underworld Emperor. Hearsay it is a terrifying existence who brings despair and death with him.”
“Right, amongst unparalleled existences, he is the most vicious of them all.” Southern Cloud King said.
Xue Ying chuckled: “I naturally know of it since there are a lot of rumors regarding him. But isn’t did he not disappear from the world? Ever since the First War of the Ancient Nation, there is no longer news about him. He should have fallen after such a long period.” It was easy to imagine how cruel this existence was for he was treated as synonymous to death.
Southern Cloud King looked at Xue Ying.
Even though he did not approve of his disciple’s Dao Heart, it did not hinder his admiration for such a person.
“He did not die.” Southern Cloud King said, “He has returned.”
“Returned?” Xue Ying felt puzzled, “What do you mean by that?”
