Chapter 1234 – Entering Emperor Yan Island
Xue Ying accepted without hesitation. Great Emperor Shamanic Wind was also happy with the outcome. They began planning in detail what they should do next.
“I know. Great Emperor can be rest assured.” Xue Ying nodded while he listened.
Great Emperor Shamanic Wind explained the plan once through before reminding once again: “Finally, Brother Flying Snow, it is best if you conceal your aura and disguise your appearances. Your name should have already spread across the strongest experts in the Natives. Even though news spread relatively slowly within the Death Destruction Clan, Emperor Yan is ultimately one of the 13 top Emperors. It has also the most subordinates. Hence, its source of information is relatively quicker. Perhaps it might have heard of some news related to you. If it recognized you immediately, things might be troublesome since it could prepare for your arrival!”
“Alright. It will certainly be unable to recognize me.” Xue Ying was filled with confidence. Ever since he created the number one killing technique using the Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm, his skills of disguise had become very much profound. Even his body would exist as part of the illusion. Hence, he was definitely the person with the best disguising means in Realm Heart Great Land.
“I will have to make some preparations. Shall we set off tomorrow?” Both eyes of Great Emperor Shamanic Wind were emitting light.
“I can move out at any time.” Xue Ying directly answered.
On the next day.
Great Emperor Shamanic Wind brought along five god generals and Xue Ying with him towards the ‘Emperor Yan Island’. Great Emperor Shamanic Wind had too few god generals–a total of eight! He selected five god generals that were the strongest of them. Ultimately, Great Emperor Shamanic Wind relied on certain alluring terms or relationship with those god generals to make them willing to toil for him.
“We are at the Emperor Yan Island.”
After teleporting over.
Great Emperor Shamanic Wind, Xue Ying, and the others stood at the void looking at the incomparably huge sky-floating island. A cold and dark aura could be felt congregating above the sky-floating island. This island was so big that it startled Xue Ying, and the reason was that this was his first time seeing such a huge island!
“After entering the Emperor Yan Island, we’ll act according to the plan.” Great Emperor Shamanic Wind said. He was mainly staring at the five god generals under him, “We can’t afford to fail. If we fail just once, we would reveal Monarch Flying Snow, making Emperor Yan wary about him. Even if we could ask Monarch Flying Snow for help the next time, it might not be as easy.”
“Monarch, please be rest assured.”
“We’ll act according to the orders of Monarch.” The five god generals spent most of their time enjoying their freedom. But at this moment, they understood how important this task was. Great Emperor Shamanic Wind looked forward to obtaining that ‘precious treasure’, and it was only due to the rise of Monarch Flying Snow did he gain hope that it was possible to do so! The moment he failed, Great Emperor Shamanic Wind would definitely turn mad.
Great Emperor Shamanic Wind looked at Xue Ying: “In a while, we’ll have to rely on Brother Flying Snow.”
“We would still have to rely on Great Emperor and fellow god generals for the main combat.” Xue Ying chuckled back.
“Without Monarch Flying Snow, we would only be forced out.”
“Only with Monarch Flying Snow do we have the confidence.”
The five god generals were straightforward. They did not show any signs of arrogance before Monarch Flying Snow. An expert who was undoubtedly the strongest in the ‘Dao of Soul’ across Realm Heart Great Land and Broken Tooth Mountain Range was something that would make even the five Great Supremes think twice! After all, the soul of an expert was still ultimately the root of one’s existence!
“Move out.” Great Emperor Shamanic Wind lightly ordered.
“Sou sou sou sou sou sou sou!”
The seven of them immediately charged downwards into the Emperor Yan Island. They also contacted against the cold and dark aura pervading Emperor Yan Island. The moment their bodies contacted the aura, Xue Ying could not help but tremble. This was a frosty feeling that pervaded entirely through his body! Even though his fleshy body was sufficiently strong, he still could not help but feel uncomfortable.
‘This is indeed the Emperor Yan Island. In the entire Broken Tooth Mountain Range, it should be ranked in the top ten islands.’ Xue Ying thought, ‘Such an island would definitely have a tremendous amount of opportunities. But at the same time, it is incredibly dangerous. None in the history of Realm Heart Great Land could truly infiltrate the entire island.’
Emperor Yan was ranked middle in terms of personal strength between the 13 Emperors. Nonetheless, he was ranked first in terms of the overall organizational strength! He was the emperor with the most subordinates! Just by relying on the huge number of subordinates he had, he was able to scour through and occupy an incredible amount of treasures on this sky-floating island. At the same time, this island had strict security. It was certain for intruders to be discovered quickly. Given the strength of the cultivators in Realm Heart Great Land, even Emperor Summer could not break through the outermost sentries.
Penetrating through the fog-like dark aura, the seven of them felt their surroundings changing. They had arrived on the island.
The plants and trees on the Emperor Yan Island were all dark. They seemed distorted and monstrous!
Great Emperor Shamanic Wind did not hesitate. He immediately release an unseen force that covered the other six members of the exploration party, imbuing the group with a gale that allowed them to advance forward.
It was incredibly fast! Swordmaster could never compare with the speed Great Emperor Shamanic Wind was currently traveling at!
‘This speed.’ Xue Ying felt speechless. He was indeed the Great Emperor Shamanic Wind, the Great Emperor ranked top in terms of speed in the Natives. Nonetheless, the opponent this time, ‘Emperor Yan’, was similarly ranked in the top within the 13 Emperors with his speed.
The seven of them were wrapped like a bun.
This lump of wind did not seem to suffer from any hindrances as it traveled through the forest.
“Intruders!” The security of Emperor Yan Island was ultimately too strict. Just a few breaths later, Great Emperor Shamanic Wind, Xue Ying and the others had been discovered by a sentry.
“Elder, we discovered intruders.” The sentry immediately reported upwards.
Being wrapped by the wind force, Xue Ying and the others were traveling at an unfathomable speed. It was so fast that Xue Ying could not discern his surroundings with his naked eyes. He could only rely on his domain to perceive his surroundings.
This was the strength of a Great Emperor! Great Emperor Shamanic Wind who was famous for his speed, could easily travel at speeds that Kings could not even discern clearly at all!
A horrific ripple descended. This forceful wave exploded, destroying many trees in the surrounding region of spanning more than 50 million kilometers.
A towering giant covered in scales stood there with its hands raised aloft. It was currently carrying a huge hammer. Itts figure was so big that ordinary trees were merely at the height of his knee. This scaled giant opened its mouth, revealing its sharp teeth. It grinned, letting out a world-shaking laughter that rolled out in waves, causing the world to tremble: “Hahaha, isn’t this Great Emperor Shamanic Wind? Previously, you have been forced out by us, battered and exhausted. Why aren’t you learning from your lesson? Why are you here seeking to be beaten again? I urge you to scram! Otherwise, there is no need for my master Emperor Yan to act. Just the few of us Elders is sufficient to force you into an escape. I remembered you have been kicked fiercely on the butt by my brother, right? Hahaha…”
Xue Ying was startled when he saw that.
This scaled giant should be an elder responsible for the outer perimeter security of Emperor Yan Island! In terms of his strength, it felt so much stronger than the ‘Emperor’ that Xue Ying encountered on the very first sky-floating island he ventured in Broken Tooth Mountain Range. This was nothing out of the ordinary though since the other party was an elder of ‘Emperor Yan’, one of the 13 strongest Emperors.
At that moment, there were god generals shouting back angrily!
Of the five god generals Great Emperor Shamanic Wind brought along, one of them spat out, “hong–”
A black flame vaguely glowing in violet light burst out immediately into the world. The surrounding trees that caught fire turn into nothingness instantaneously. The flames also engulfed that elder. At that moment, the scaled giant furiously moved the huge hammer in its hands. Nonetheless, the flame was shapeless. It easily wrapped around the giant, burning that scaled giant and causing him to howl in agony.
“I asked you to scram yet you don’t? Then we shall wait and see!” The scaled giant did not think of just relying on itself to fight against Great Emperor Shamanic Wind. Its original intention was to chide this Great Emperor Shamanic Wind and ask him to scram! Even though Great Emperor Shamanic Wind had killed his way many times in history over, he had never succeeded in entering the core of the island.
The scaled giant teleported and disappeared from the vicinity.
The rules amongst the Natives were rigid.
But the internal regulations inside the Death Destruction Clan were laxer. Even the elders of the Emperor with the most subordinates, ‘Emperor Yan’, could meet it directly anytime.
Emperor Yan Palace.
This was a palace that mimicked the architecture of the Natives. This palace was constructed with the support from a huge mountain nearby, and was relatively big.
The scaled giant entered the palace. It took several steps before arriving within a desolate enormous hall. With a glance, it saw the seated Emperor Yan on a cold crystalline bed! Emperor Yan was slightly thin and seemingly shriveled. Its entire body was covered in a layer of scales. It also had a pair of scaled wings. The Emperor sat just like that on the crystalline bed with its claws laying against its knees, with its back slightly hunched and its scaly wings covering the upper half of its body. Its eyes were close as if it was deep asleep.
“Emperor Yan, that Great Emperor Shamanic Wind has come again!” The scaled giant immediately announced after entering the hall. His voice echoed across the palace, causing the place to shake slightly from it.
