Chapter 1165 – Insect Ancestor
Those devils were easily killed by Xue Ying. Hence, he paid little attention to it.
But there were others who cared!
“Who is this white-robed male to dare disrupt the Blood Sacrifice of my Eight Silk Island and even killed the experts of my Eight Silk Island Master!”
“Island Master, we must definitely find out who he is! He dared to kill all experts from our Eight Silk Island? That is going overboard! He doesn’t care about our Eight Silk Island at all!”
The palace hall was clamoring.
This palace hall was also one of the most well-known devil gathering grounds in the entire Realm Heart Great Land, the main palace of ‘Eight Silk Island’. The commander of Eight Silk Island, ‘Eight Silk Island Master’, was a peak Cosmos God expert. Even though he did not own any supreme-graded weapon, in terms of strength and influencing power, this Island Master was beyond that of Yama Religion Master, Western Floating Old Ancestor, and many other Paragon Masters who had great survival skills.
Those who could reach the final realm usually had the capability to survive against unparalleled existences.
After all, they had cultivated in one of the Daos to the peak of Cosmos God Realm; they had attained unfathomable supernormal knowledge in an aspect. Even though unparalleled existences could defeat them easily, killing these peak Cosmos Gods were practically impossible.
Just like when ‘Old Monster Stone’ battled against ‘Sacred Master’, both parties were heavily injured from the battle because neither of them chose to flee. Sacred Master had to protect his ‘Ancient Sacred World’ and Old Monster Stone was simply furious! If they wanted to escape, even unparalleled existences could not stop them from doing so.
Hence, ‘Eight Silk Island Master’ being a peak Cosmos God and a huge devil, created one of the havens for many devils.
Usually, they were the ones bullying others. When did they become a target for others to bully?
Other than the six great ancient nations, their Eight Silk Island was not afraid of anyone!
“Everyone, shut up.”
Eight Silk Island Master indifferently stated. Everyone went quiet.
Eight Silk Island Master was very fat–extremely so. He was just like a round of flesh seated on the throne. His small eyes were looking at the scene projected on the ‘Heaven Observation Mirror’. Even though his subordinates proceeded to the ‘Elegant Peace Valley City’ to carry out a Blood Sacrifice, they could still see what was happening using the Heaven Observation Mirror from afar. It was only because Xue Ying’s actions had been too quick that they did not have sufficient time to react before Xue Ying left.
“Insect Ancestor, I’m afraid I’ve let you seen us played for a fool.” Eight Silk Island Master looked at another expert who sat by his side. That was a humanoid who was covered entirely in pitch black scales. He had a pair of thin cicada-like crystalline wings and two soft feelers protruding from his head. He was just like a humanoid insect! His pair of cold eyes would cause anybody to feel trepidation when looked into.
“It is truly unexpected for such an event to occur from a Blood Sacrifice carried out by your subordinates, Island Master.” The voice of that Insect Ancestor was hoarse. His mouth edged upwards, “It seems your luck isn’t that great.”
“It is truly unfortunate for this powerful Cosmos God to live in seclusion coincidentally within this Elegant Peace Valley City. This Cosmos God seems to specialize in the Dao of Void, and his techniques appear to have reached the final realm.” Eight Silk Island Master said, “In the entire Realm Heart Great Land, there are very few final realm experts, yet who would have thought that my subordinates would meet one, and he did not care about me either.”
There were indeed few final realm experts.
Other than the unparalleled existences, the remaining few could be counted with two hands. As for the exact number, it was hard for the experts in Realm Heart Great Land to count.
Because once a cultivator reached the final realm, those who did not own any supreme-graded weapon would either rule a territory, or that they would choose to live in seclusion, cultivating towards the sole goal of becoming a ‘Chaotic Origin Expert’! Those who chose to remain low-profile would not be found out by others.
“It appears that other than you, Insect Ancestor, there appears to be another mysterious peak Cosmos God living in the Realm Heart Great Land too.” Eight Silk Island Master said.
“It is also fortunate for me to have a breakthrough in the territory of yours, Island Master.” Insect Ancestor smiled.
“Haha, it is my pleasure for Insect Ancestor to reach the final realm in my territory. Now that Insect Ancestor has become a peak Cosmos God, I believe your name would soon shake the entire Great Land.” Eight Silk Island Master sighed.
Final realm experts could choose not to reveal themselves.
But the moment they did so, they would startle the entire Realm Heart Great Land.
Because any final realm expert could become an ‘unparalleled existence’! Even if they did not own a supreme-graded weapon, they had the qualification to stir the world.
“Hmph hmph hmph.” Insect Ancestor sneered. His eyes were flashing with killing intent, “That’s right. It is time for my name to shake the great land.”
Eight Silk Island Master chuckled when he saw that: “It appears that someone is bound to be unlucky.”
“I’ve endured for a very long time.” Insect Ancestor indifferent replied. He then proceeded to switch the topic, “Are you planning to let that mysterious expert who killed so many of your subordinates off?”
“That is an expert in the Dao of Void. And it appears that none of us have seen him before. If I chose to deal with him, I would have to search through the entire land inch by inch.” Eight Silk Island Master shook his head. His plump body swayed, “Whatever. I shall just treat it as bad luck this time.”
Other experts of the Eight Silk Island could only suppress their fury when they heard that.
“Since we do not know his identity, it is practically similar to finding a needle in haystacks. Count him lucky.”
“He is definitely afraid of offending Island Master, which was why he did not dare to reveal his identity.”
Everyone added on.
Eight Silk Island Master sneered. He squinted his eyes, suppressing the bubbling cold killing intent in him. Previously when he saw the scene through the Heaven Observation Mirror, he saw how Xue Ying acted. That move of his created several hundred cracks that filled almost the entire sky above Elegant Peace Valley City, killing all his subordinates. With such a huge area of effect and such a great power, Eight Silk Island Master understood–that was a formidable opponent!
‘I shall just take it as my misfortune.’ Eight Silk Island Master thought.
He had many subordinates, and this time, he merely sent a team out.
“Island Master, I have stayed for a long time over at your place. It is also time for me to make my move.” Insect Ancestor stood.
Xue Ying calmly meditated within the Flying Snow City. A year later, Southern Cloud King finished gathering all materials written on the second scroll Xue Ying gave him.
That time, the first scroll Xue Ying gave were all precious materials required to refine the Chaotic Origin Weapon–excluding the ‘Chaotic Origin Sand’. Even though it was easier to gather them, that was when compared to gathering the Chaotic Origin Sand. With the intelligence network of Southern Cloud King, it would likely require a slightly longer time to gather them.
As for the second set of scrolls, the materials written were comparatively more low-end. Even though it cost 100 billion cosmos crystals too, the reason was due to ‘large amounts’! As for how precious these materials were, they were much cheaper by an entire level as compared to those listed on the first scroll.
“So fast?” The avatar Xue Ying left behind in the Southern Cloud Capital received the storage wristband passed over by his teacher. He checked through the voluminous amount of materials in it. Even though they were low-end, the amount was huge! And his teacher took just a year to gather them? This exceeded what Xue Ying expected.
Southern Cloud King laughed: “Xue Ying, you are planning on re-fortifying your entire Flying Snow City?”
“Yes.” Xue Ying nodded, “Teacher, how do you know?”
“Haha, you should know that I could fight against unparalleled existences within the Southern Cloud Capital.” Southern Cloud King smiled, “Why was that? It’s because the entire city is filled with many arrays. A single unit of strength could be augmented until it reaches a hundred to a thousand units of combat strength. Only then could I fight against unparalleled existences! And all the materials which you need are some of the materials which I had used to fortify the capital royal palace. That time, I collected a lot of them, and still have plenty leftover. And I know where to search for those that I lacked. That was why I could gather them so quickly for you.”
Xue Ying laughed.
“Right, Teacher, that time when you re-constructed the capital royal palace, it should be more expensive than what I spent right?” Xue Ying asked.
“Approximately ten times yours.” Southern Cloud King sighed, “I felt heart ached from that as I pawned almost all my treasures.”
Xue Ying was dumbstruck.
His materials cost about 100 billion cosmos crystals, and he felt he was quite willing to spend already. It was also because Xue Ying had taken the top-graded weapon of Black Sovereign King out to be exchanged! And the price his teacher spent in fortifying the capital was actually ten times that! In other words, several top-graded secret treasures! He was indeed the most wealthy Paragon Master in the world. Even Great Paragon Fuyi and Sky-Rending Great Paragon were tossed far behind by him.
“Why are you planning on fortifying this city?” Southern Cloud King looked at Xue Ying.
“To prevent any unforeseen circumstances.” Xue Ying answered, “Even though I usually handle matters carefully without revealing my identity, but with my journey of killing all devils, I believe that I would offend many huge devils one day! Who knows one day if I might reveal my identity, implicating the Ying Shan Clan as a result. Hence, I have to prepare for rainy days.”
Southern Cloud King softly nodded.
Since his disciple chose to stand out for the weak, there would naturally be typhoons and storms inundating his way.
“Tell me if you need my help.” Southern Cloud King added.
“Teacher has already given me a lot of help.” Xue Ying laughed.
That day, he began reconstructing the core Monarch Residence in the entire Flying Snow City. He had more than 10,000 avatars. Even though the other avatars were very weak, it was sufficient for them to carry out such menial tasks.
Only after fortifying Flying Snow City into an invulnerable place did Xue Ying let go of his worries.
