Chapter 1251 – Final Realm (1)
Chapter 1251: Final Realm (1)
“It’s the three Great Emperors and Monarch Flying Snow.”
Those who stayed here keeping watch of the place for a long time noticed the three Great Emperors and Xue Ying. They did not stop them.
After all, they knew that a Great Emperor along with the help of Monarch Flying Snow could easily combat against a Supreme.
“That place feels terrifyingly powerful right?” Great Emperor Shamanic Wind looked at that grand and incomparably huge dark maelstrom and the savage-looking snake head, sighing: “Hearsay this snakehead is one of the two Chaotic Origin Lifeforms that died. Even after its death, it still generated a maelstrom that remains eternal. If any of us were to force our way in, we would be sending ourselves to death.”
Xue Ying nodded as he looked at that huge snakehead that seemed to be sculpted from stone. The snakehead was comparable in size to the dark maelstrom–approximately that of the Southern Cloud Nation. How big was the entire snake then?
Such a lifeform was unimaginably big! It was indeed an inborn Chaotic Origin Lifeform, and also a well-known figure. Comparing Chaotic Origin Lifeforms like ‘Emperor Deep Stone’ and ‘Myriad Tentacles Dragon Son’ were simply comparing ants to a dragon.
“North River has already fled into the Snake Tooth Corridor. We can’t continue pursuing him after that.”
“Count him lucky for fleeing fast enough.”
“Many thanks to you three Great Emperors. Since North River has entered the Snake Tooth Corridor, let us place this matter aside temporarily.”
Xue Ying bade farewell to the three Great Emperors and left by himself.
This event involved the ‘Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet’. That was a supreme treasure which could provide a chance of entering the Snake Tooth Corridor. Furthermore, this event also involved one of the five Great Supremes, ‘Supreme Shi Fa’, Great Emperor North River, and that cultivator from Realm Heart Great Land, ‘Monarch Flying Snow’. Hence, this piece of news spread incredibly quickly. It rapidly spread across all experts in Broken Tooth Mountain Range.
Everyone was discussing about this matter.
They were jealous of ‘Great Emperor North River’, and pitied ‘Monarch Flying Snow’.
“He helped Great Emperor North River fight against Supreme Shi Fa. But other than his soul technique, he is ultimately too weak! When faced with Great Emperor North River, he did not have the slightest ability to resist. Hence, he was killed easily.”
“He is ultimately a cultivator, and cultivators are all weak.”
“He is too weak. It is natural that he could not keep the Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet.”
“The Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet is a treasure of our Broken Tooth Mountain Range. How could a cultivator from the Realm Heart Great Land be qualified to own it?”
Even though many experts in Broken Tooth Mountain Range respected Monarch Flying Snow, they were still disdainful of cultivators from the Realm Heart Great Land. They had always been unconvinced over the fame of ‘Monarch Flying Snow’. Now that Monarch Flying Snow suffered from a huge loss, they naturally felt delighted.
News spread relatively slowly between Realm Heart Great Land and Broken Tooth Mountain Range. But just five years after the event happened, it gradually reached Realm Heart Great Land.
Within a dark palace hall.
There were several pillars inscribed with strange array diagrams. On every pillar hung a powerful vengeful soul.
“Hu.” A strand of consciousness descended. The surrounding World Energy condensed into a handsome male wearing a cape. He was none other than the incarnation of Eternal Night Primogenitor.
When the incarnation of Eternal Night Primogenitor descended, it immediately startled the vengeful souls. These souls struggled and howled! They glared angrily at Eternal Night Primogenitor. Some of them opened their eyes to give Eternal Night Primogenitor a look before going back to sleep. Some were coldly staring at Eternal Night Primogenitor. An ultra-strong vengeful soul was attached to a pillar, and there were a total of 12 of them.
“I wonder what this Undying Underworld Emperor plans to do?” Eternal Night Primogenitor mumbled to himself.
“Eternal Night, you are here.” Seated above on a throne, Undying Underworld Emperor who was wearing a golden robe and a crown opened his eyes. He stared down at Eternal Night Primogenitor, “What are you here for since you aren’t planning to help me?”
Eternal Night Primogenitor said: “Underworld Emperor, you can’t blame me for this. You should know how famous that Ying Shan Xue Ying is, and how much influence he has in Broken Tooth Mountain Range. Many treasures and opportunities were even given to him willingly by the experts from Broken Tooth Mountain Range! Hence, it is highly possible for him to break through to the final realm in the future. The moment he reaches the final realm, he might possibly become the strongest expert in Realm Heart Great Land! I do wish to survive! Fortunately, I requested ‘Extreme Night’ for help, asking him to plead to Monarch Flying Snow on my behalf. After several promises, that Monarch Flying Snow agreed to dissolve our enmity.”
“Hmph, you are simply afraid of death.” Even though Undying Underworld Emperor understood the other party, he still sneered.
“I have no choice.” Eternal Night Primogenitor shook his head.
He felt humiliated too.
But he was worried that Xue Ying might chase him down and kill him in the future. He did not even dare to ask for mercy since both of them were enemies. In the end, he asked ‘Eternal Night Primogenitor’ for help. Xue Ying agreed to the conditions. Just a year after the incident over the ‘Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet’ happened, Eternal Night Primogenitor went to meet Xue Ying alone, making amendments and immediately swore an oath there and then.
Cultivators cared a lot about oaths!
Xue Ying was not forcing these great devils like Undying Underworld Emperor, Eternal Night Primogenitor, Moonflower King, and other final realm devils down a path of no return! As long as those devils promised to abide by the conditions, Xue Ying would agree not to pursue them. The reason Xue Ying chose to do so was because he knew these final realm devils would become mad and cause a huge calamity to fall if he did not give them a path to live.
The majority of them had obediently came to make amends and swore new oaths.
Only those like ‘Undying Underworld Emperor’ who was one-heartedly pursuing his ambition of becoming a Chaotic Origin Lifeform did he choose to rely on his cultivation. He no longer had his original confidence, and sought to enter the ‘Snake Tooth Corridor’. As a result, he chose to go hostile with Xue Ying. Currently, he was even madly collecting large amounts of souls. Many other living beings had died because of this. And Xue Ying did not stop him at all!
“It seems that he, Ying Shan Xue Ying, has suffered from an especially huge loss in Broken Tooth Mountain Range?” Undying Underworld Emperor sneered, “He was actually so fortunate to obtain the ‘Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet’, yet it was stolen from him because of his inadequate strength. Great Emperor North River treated Ying Shan Xue Ying politely previously, but then he chose to backstab within a split second? Hmph hmph, seems like the experts in Broken Tooth Mountain Range are merely showing Ying Shan Xue Ying respect on the surface during normal times. But for things related to the great opportunity of becoming a Chaotic Origin Lifeform, what could he, Ying Shan Xue Ying, be considered?”
“Right, the experts in Broken Tooth Mountain Range merely felt he is valuable.” Eternal Night Primogenitor nodded, “After all, we cultivators are much weaker than the experts in Broken Tooth Mountain Range. It was fortunate that Yuan set down a restriction law to prevent the top experts of Broken Tooth Mountain Range from entering into our Realm Heart Great Land.”
The peak cultivators in Realm Heart Great Land.
Some of them were forced under Xue Ying’s intimidating strength and chose to take the initiative and admit defeat. Some were filled with envy and jealousy. Many even sneered gleefully when the event in Broken Tooth Mountain Range happened.
“See how brash he was? He might possibly become the strongest expert in Realm Heart Great Land, but now in the Broken Tooth Mountain Range, don’t those experts in Broken Tooth Mountain Range control the power still?”
“He is ultimately too weak.”
“Others might think he could possibly have a breakthrough, but this bottleneck might last forever.”
Many parties were discussing in dark.
What everyone said was logical too! It was indeed very difficult to reach the final realm. Because of the Chaotic Origin Weapon, and the rumors that Monarch Flying Snow owned a supreme secret impartation coupled with the various opportunities he had in Broken Tooth Mountain Range, many determined that Xue Ying had a large chance of breaking through to the final realm. But no matter how huge this chance was, it was merely a ‘chance’. It was possible for Xue Ying to be stuck at this bottleneck forever.
As the outside world continued discussing over Xue Ying, Xue Ying remained living his life carefreely in his Flying Snow City.
What did others say about how he would become the strongest in Realm Heart Great Land?
What did others say about how it was possible for him to get stuck at the bottleneck for a very long time?
What did others say about how he was easily bullied in the Broken Tooth Mountain Range?
“Xue Ying, was that matter over the Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet real?” Southern Cloud King came personally to ask.
“Teacher, please have a seat.” Xue Ying was currently watching the clouds leisurely. When he saw his teacher come, he grinned.
“I’ve asked you a question.” After Southern Cloud King sat, he immediately poured himself a cup of wine, downed one before staring at Xue Ying again.
“It’s true! That’s normal too since my combat strength is simply too miniscule in Broken Tooth Mountain Range.” Xue Ying chuckled.
“Ai! What a pity! The chance of entering the legendary forbidden ground in Broken Tooth Mountain Range has appeared before your eyes, yet it was fleeting.” Southern Cloud King said. Previously, he did not know what the Snake Tooth Corridor was. But this time when the news came out, he thoroughly asked others, only to find out some unique secrets regarding the Snake Tooth Corridor. Even the five Great Supremes in Broken Tooth Mountain Range desired to enter that place.
“There’s nothing much to be pitied. I have never thought that I could own that Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet by myself.” Xue Ying said. He had always remained calm without having any excessive expectations, “It’s just that I have judged Great Emperor North River wrongly. We have already sworn an oath and even agreed to the condition that I would have an avatar remain by his side. Nonetheless, he was still not feeling assured. He chose to offend me and take the Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet away.”
Southern Cloud King nodded after hearing it: “Mn. It’s a pity. Xue Ying, if you were strong enough to fight against those like Emperor Summer, in addition to your illusory realm technique, there would no longer be a need to fear being trampled by others.”
Xue Ying laughed.
Ultimately, he was too weak. Hence, nothing much could be said about that.
The matter over the Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet had spread across the entirety of Broken Tooth Mountain Range and Realm Heart Great Land. Yet Xue Ying remained low-profile and continued cultivating.
On this day.
Within Flying Snow City, in the Monarch’s Residence.
Xue Ying sat in the pavilion watching the fish swimming within the lake. Suddenly, he thought back to the scene that he saw.
It was of a terrifying Chaotic Origin Lifeform flying in the vast and endless Primal Chaos Space.
“Every movement of a Chaotic Origin Lifeform at this level is simply mystical.” Xue Ying’s memories were good. He clearly remembered every single part of what he saw. It was fine if he did not understand other profound mysteries inherent within the Chaotic Origin Lifeform as it swam away, but the ‘Dao of Void’ was what he specialized in. At this moment when he thought back to that scene, he gradually pondered and grasped over part of the profound mysteries in it.
As it swam away…
A single movement brought it easily across a distance of an Origin World. His control over the Dao of Void had reached a stage that made Xue Ying sigh.
“It is simply too perfect.”
Xue Ying could not see any flaws in its motion.
Everything seemed absolutely of one entity!
He appreciated this scene like an art. He appreciated every single extraordinariness when that huge Chaotic Origin Lifeform swam away.
“The Sky Phase and Earth Phase are completely undivided!”
“The Thread Phase remains so beautiful still.”
“The Violent Phase could reach such a level of strength!”
As Xue Ying appreciated the scene, gradually, a piece of inspiration began flashing in his mind.
His avatar locked in the ‘Seven Bell Pagoda’ had always been comprehending over the Dao of Void. It gained quite a lot from this closed-door cultivation. Xue Ying had always been trying to create the sixth killing technique from the Dao of Void, and at this moment, he finally had the spark of inspiration. In the past, many comprehensions he had were like beads being threaded together.
“The Sky Phase, Earth Phase, Void Phase, Violent Phase, and Origin Phase are all connected with the Empty Phase holding them together! With the ‘Thread Phase’, these phases form a closer relation…” In the mind of Xue Ying projected the scene of that Chaotic Origin Lifeform’s tail waddling. Every single motion comprised of many ‘Thread Phases’ intersecting perfectly with one another.
“Three Thread Phases should be sufficient.”
“Three Thread Phases fused together with the ‘Poly Phase’ merging them as one.”
“And once everything is merged, the motion would return to a Nirvinic state!”
Xue Ying revealed a look of excitement. He had always wanted to fuse all nine branches together. He even accumulated sufficient experiences and comprehensions, only leaving behind just this one last bit of spark of inspiration.
And it was only now did he finally began to realize. From appreciating the swimming movement of that terrifying Chaotic Origin Lifeform to gaining a spark of inspiration, Xue Ying entered an incredibly focused state of cultivation.
