Chapter 1216 – Complete Wipeout
The sudden appearance of Emperor Deep Stone’s upper half body had awed the entire sky-floating island. The Death Destruction clansmen on that sky-floating island including the ‘Emperor’ who had awoken were all apprehensive.
“He has started hunting again.” The ‘Emperor’ on this sky-floating island was a seemingly thin and weak red-robed girl. She stood in the clans-ground. Behind her were her group of subordinates. They were all surveying that incredibly huge figure. Ever since ‘Emperor Deep Stone’ arrived on this sky-floating island, the master of this sky-floating island had been Emperor Deep Stone instead. The Emperor of the Death Destruction Clan did not dare to challenge him.
Even though they could survive, they were simply trampled upon by Emperor Deep Stone! Fortunately, Emperor Deep Stone disliked eating those from the Death Destruction Clan. He would spend most of his time sleeping at this sky-floating island. Only when he met natives or cultivators would he be willing to devour them.
That bloody mouth of Emperor Deep Stone began sucking up everything beneath it.
Light became warped–turning the place dark. Time and space were also becoming distorted. An incredibly huge force pulled up on Xue Ying, Insect Ancestor and Swordmaster.
“Brother Bewitching Sword, we have to depend on you now. But it’s fine even if we die, it’s just that it will take some time and quite a huge price for me to regain my body!” Insect Ancestor transmitted.
“Swordmaster, we have to rely on your skills now. I can’t do anything about it.” Xue Ying transmitted over too.
Swordmaster coldly waved his hand before keeping Xue Ying and Insect Ancestor by his side.
He did not have the time to save that distant major avatar of Xue Ying which went forward to probe the lake. Under the terrifying devouring force, that major avatar had rapidly been engulfed into the enormous mouth of Emperor Deep Stone. Deep in the mouth, there was a piece of distorting crimson that Xue Ying saw. Following that, Xue Ying felt incredibly hot!
Even though his body could be compared to level-three Cosmos God body cultivators, under this blazing heat, his body was disintegrated.
‘An avatar seems to be powerless against this terrifying existence.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly. The strength of Emperor Deep Stone was beyond that of the trapped ‘Myriad Tentacles Dragon Son’! But the overall strength of Realm Heart Great Land was still powerful. Furthermore, the lower-graded Chaotic Origin Lifeforms, and the terrifying native and Death Destruction existences could not penetrate through the membrane and leave Broken Tooth Mountain Range.
According to the intelligence.
The Chaotic Origin Lifeforms living in the Broken Tooth Mountain Range were simply low-graded lifeforms. There were only a few of them too. It was quite rare to meet any one of them! It was common for them to be powerful. It was fine for unparalleled existences to survive against most of them. But the eight strongest lifeforms were termed as Great Sages.
Emperor Deep Stone! Was also called ‘Great Sage Deep Stone’. He was one of the eight Great Sages! If Emperor Summer met with one with his supreme-graded secret treasure, he could still escape from it. But for Xue Ying and the rest to survive? Chances of succeeding were too miniscule!
Of course, the most terrifying existences within the Broken Tooth Mountain Range were still the top five peak existences in the Death Destruction Clan and the Natives. They were also called ‘Five Supremes’.
The Five Supremes!
Three were from the Death Destruction Clan and two from the Natives.
They were the true overlords of the vast Broken Tooth Mountain Range. At their level of strength, even Undying Underworld Emperor and Emperor Summer would be easily killed! Hence, Undying Underworld Emperor wanted to refine a ‘Death Walker’ and fork out a huge price including a large-scale sacrificial ritual just for this. Nonetheless, Xue Ying intervened and disrupted his affair. Hence, even though Undying Underworld Emperor held an intense desire to venture into the deepest region of the Broken Tooth Mountain Range, he did not dare to do so.
Because the best resources and most unique territories in the Broken Tooth Mountain Range were all occupied by the five Supremes!
They did not care about the five Supremes.
Instead, just this Emperor Deep Stone before them sufficed in bringing anxiety to Xue Ying, Insect Ancestor, and Swordmaster.
“Did they not say that chances of meeting a low-graded Chaotic Origin Lifeform is miniscule? We have explored for 30 over sky-floating islands. It is fine if we met one, yet the one we meet is one of the eight Great Sages, Emperor Deep Stone!” Insect Ancestor felt bitter.
Xue Ying was doing his utmost with his illusory realm from within the Eden Treasure.
The illusory realm pervaded the surroundings. Even though it contacted just a small part of Emperor Deep Stone’s body, it invaded his soul. Nonetheless, Chaotic Origin Lifeforms were too special. Many parts of their bodies were made from the Supreme Law. Any piece of scale and bone contained profound mysteries. Similarly, their souls were incredibly powerful. Even though their intelligence was ordinary, they were merely mildly disturbed by the illusory realm, causing the strength of Emperor Deep Stone to decrease by just 10%.
‘What I can do is just these. Swordmaster, everything will have to depend on you now.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly. Even though he brought the Void Fire Lotus Flower with him and had nine major avatars working together, they still could not resist against the devour of Emperor Deep Stone.
A dazzling sword light tore apart the endless darkness.
Swordmaster held onto his sword and broke apart the heavy restrictive forces. He was trying his best to rush outwards!
“Si la!” The enormous claws of Emperor Deep Stone were seemingly made from rock. They appeared from the darkness and came down at Swordmaster rapidly. Swordmaster did his best to resist against it.
The sword light were scattered.
And Swordmaster was forced backwards with a mouthful of blood.
“Hahaha…” Emperor Deep Stone guffawed. His laughter reverberated across the entire sky-floating island as if he was enjoying the battle.
Within the Eden Treasure.
Xue Ying and Insect Ancestor were both nervously watching outside. They saw as Swordmaster struggled bitterly.
“He is too powerful.” Insect Ancestor could not help but comment, “Bewitching Sword has an unparalleled power. Furthermore, his techniques are quite perfect in many areas. Even Eternal Night Primogenitor or Moonflower King might not perform better than Brother Bewitching Sword.”
“We can only blame our luck on encountering Emperor Deep Stone.” Xue Ying felt helpless, “Furthermore, it seems that Emperor Deep Stone is treating this as an entertainment. He isn’t using all his strength. What a pity that us cultivators suffer from repulsion in the sky-floating island and could not teleport. We can only fly slowly! Hence, Emperor Deep Stone isn’t worried that we can escape.”
“Ai!” The expression on Insect Ancestor twitched.
Xue Ying frowned too. Because Swordmaster’s body had been cut apart. Even though it was rapidly recovering, the body of Swordmaster was entangled with a strange gray energy.
Approximately ten over breath of time later.
“Xue Ying, Insect Ancestor, I can’t hold on any longer.” The figure of Swordmaster transmitted over.
Very soon, the Eden Treasure exploded.
Xue Ying and Insect Ancestor gave each other a smile. Even though they struggled and tried to escape, under the endless force of ‘Emperor Deep Stone’, they were still absorbed and devoured.
“I’ll have to take some time to recover. After I’m done, I’ll come over to the Flying Snow City. Big Brother Flying Snow, do help me take care of my treasures.” As he was being devoured, Insect Ancestor transmitted over.
“Rest assured. I’ll not covet what are yours.” Xue Ying smiled.
Swordmaster, Xue Ying, and Insect Ancestor. This team of three was completely wiped!
Flying Snow City.
At a garden piled with snow, Xue Ying stood alone here looking up at the sky. There was a figure currently condensing above. It was also the incarnation of Swordmaster.
“Xue Ying.” Swordmaster came down. There was a strand of helplessness on his face, “I’ve disappointed the few of you in failing to resist against Emperor Deep Stone.”
“At least you could still resist against him! I don’t even have the slightest chance of struggling back.” Xue Ying chuckled, “Furthermore, we have prepared ourselves in losing our avatars prior to entering the Broken Tooth Mountain Range. Even though it is regretful that we lost all our treasures, we have gained quite a huge harvest in the previous 33 sky-floating islands.”
Swordmaster nodded: “I’m not in a rush. We can distribute them after Insect Ancestor returns.”
“With his strength, he would require some time to regain his body.” Xue Ying said, “He doesn’t have any avatars, and it should be a form of innate revival technique a final realm insect have.”
“Our expedition in the Broken Tooth Mountain Range saw us exploring many sky-floating islands. Xue Ying, it’s thanks to you that we were able to gain more than what we expected. We had even encountered several opportunities.” Swordmaster said, “Since we lost our avatars this time, and I had lost my weapon too, my strength is comparable to yours in this short period so I’ll not visit the Broken Tooth Mountain Range for a while. I am prepared to enter closed-door cultivation and meditate properly. I haven’t had the time to digest and consolidate those opportunities which I met at the Broken Tooth Mountain Range.”
“You aren’t going anymore?” Xue Ying felt strange.
“For now, yes.” Swordmaster replied.
Xue Ying slightly nodded: “But I still plan on visiting. I still wish to see the other mysterious eyes.”
“Haha, you have many avatars. By trying a few more times, it is possible for you to see those mysterious eyes.” Swordmaster chuckled.
Xue Ying nodded.
Even though their harvest was great, Swordmaster lost an avatar of his and a piece of incredibly powerful Dao of Destruction secret treasure. Swordmaster was able to reach the unparalleled power because he had his supreme secret impartation coupled with an appropriate peak-graded secret treasure! Otherwise, his strength would be reduced. He no longer had the confidence of ‘resisting and fighting’ with his current strength in sky-floating island. It would simply be a gamble if he were to venture there now.
In terms of avatars, Swordmaster did not have as many as Xue Ying. Every loss would see him refine another slowly.
Firstly, he did not wish to delay Xue Ying. Secondly, he really wanted to cultivate! He wanted to absorb what he had gained during this period!
‘Swordmaster plans on entering closed-door cultivation, and Insect Ancestor isn’t able to regain his strength temporarily. If I were to rely on myself… I can only depend on my avatars and illusory realm technique.’ Xue Ying thought. He had many avatars. But he dared not be overconfident of the fact that he could travel to the core of the sky-floating islands alone. Nonetheless, with the Mirage and Illusory Realm technique, he was still quite confident of sweeping all Kings.
