Chapter 1265 – Accidental Surprise?
There were only those three huge birds flying around the fiery-red feather. At this moment, all three birds had stopped flying. They were glaring at Xue Ying. The one that was the biggest, a green bird, let out a ear-piercing screech.
It formed a ripple that the naked eyes could see, sweeping towards Xue Ying in a fan shape. This ripple spread incredibly quick and easily covered approximately 20% to 30% of this Realm Dimension area within an instance. Naturally, it also affected Xue Ying.
Even though the black protection light cover had isolated the damages, just hearing the sound made Xue Ying unwell.
“Sou.””Sou.” The other two birds had instead turned into streams of light as they shot at Xue Ying. As for that huge green bird, it remained by the fiery-red feather as its sole protector.
These two birds flew with a strange trajectory. Within an instance, they appeared before Xue Ying. Xue Ying did not have the time to react. Instead, he was assaulted by the birds, causing his body to fly far backwards. At the same time as he flew back, Xue Ying’s figure immediately divided into 10,000 avatars. He also began casting the Dao of Void technique to confuse the opponents.
“Sou sou,” those two birds continued their attack. They did not show any mercy and swept across all figures they could.
Even though they were fast, sweeping across all 10,000 figures gave Xue Ying sufficient time to hide, dodge before rinsing the whole process again.
‘Their techniques are clearly frightening, but they seem really stupid?’ Xue Ying thought.
Previously, those opponents he faced in the Realm Fragment with the black dagger were similarly foolish.
If he did not enter the realm, they were like sculptures.
Their offenses were also made of the same styles and techniques.
Xue Ying rapidly flew towards that fiery-red feather.
Those two birds seemed to be awaken at that moment. With a flash, they arrived by the side of the fiery-red feather, joining the huge green bird to prevent the enemy from stealing the feather.
“Peng peng peng…”
Both parties continued fighting.
Xue Ying relied on the formidability of his black protection light cover while attempting to grab that fiery-red feather. As those three birds were around the feather, they required a slight movement to disrupt Xue Ying’s techniques regardless of how crude their techniques were.
‘I have to try my best to confuse and split them apart.’ Xue Ying felt heart pain. Every time he clashed with those birds, the energy in his Snake-Tooth Bead would be consumed. He tried to divide out into many figures, teleporting through the void while simultaneously casting his Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm killing technique. Only after trying several hundred times did he finally extend his hands and succeeded in his gamble at grabbing that feather.
The moment he grabbed that feather, this fragment of a world began distorting. It was like a stone being thrown into a peaceful lake.
As ripples formed, the fragmented world silently collapsed.
It felt like a dream! Disappearing like this without leaving behind any signs of its existence.
Xue Ying stood in the void holding onto that fiery-red feather. He turned towards the other six floating Realm Fragments.
‘The Realm Fragment dissipated just like that?’ Xue Ying murmured to himself inwardly, ‘What exactly are those birds? Are they illusions? Not right! They can clearly injure me.’
Right while he was contemplating over it, an unseen energy from this light ball dimension actually expelled Xue Ying out of it.
“Mn?” Xue Ying felt himself dazzling and flashing past the dimension before landing back at the vascular network outside.
“Hahaha, you are out! You are out! Monarch Flying Snow, hurry and come over to my side.” Located not too far away at a particular node within the vascular network, Supreme Vast Ancient’s eyes brightened up when he saw Xue Ying coming out, especially at that piece of fiery-red feather in Xue Ying’s hand. He immediately shouted out delightedly.
When Xue Ying heard that, he immediately flew towards Supreme Vast Ancient.
“Supreme, what exactly is going on in this Light Ball Dimension? Why is it so strange?” Xue Ying felt puzzled. At the same time, he looked down at the fiery-red feather in his hand. This fiery-red feather had a frightening temperature. Fortunately, his body was protected by the black light.
“Hurry up and give it to me!” Supreme Vast Ancient urged.
“Alright.” Xue Ying passed it over.
Supreme Vast Ancient received the feather, carefully controlling the black protective light energy to uncover his right hand. That right hand of his lightly grabbed this fiery-red feather without any protection.
“Chi chi chi~”
Even though the temperature of the feather was high, and the hand of Supreme Vast Ancient had turned red with flames burning, his right hand remained perfectly undamaged.
“Good, very good. This is a supreme energy.” Supreme Vast Ancient was incredibly excited, “An energy of fire.”
Xue Ying watched from the side.
He did not cultivate in the Dao of Flames. Previously, the aura coming from the ‘black dagger’ and the ‘fiery-red feather’ were both mysterious and unfathomable, yet Xue Ying understood that they should be related to the Dao of Flames too. It was clear that Supreme Vast Ancient was filled with excitement and joy over it.
Supreme Vast Ancient flipped his hand before placing the fiery-red feather into his bosom. He then smiled at Xue Ying: “Monarch Flying Snow, it is all thanks to you. Otherwise, I would never have been able to enter. Who would have thought that you actually succeeded in getting it.”
“What exactly is going on within the Light Ball Dimension?” Xue Ying asked, “Why is it so strange? I was facing some enemies within. After killing them, they actually rebirthed as if they were illusions! And they seemed incredibly powerful.”
“I can’t say for certain.”
Supreme Vast Ancient chuckled, “But the consciousness, as you know, is the place where our souls cultivate in. And this huge snake is an incredibly terrifying Chaotic Origin Lifeform. Its consciousness is more special and unique. It’s just that it had fallen, and its soul had dissipated. Nonetheless, this ‘sea of consciousness’ remains mysterious and profound. Sometimes, they hide some material items. Sometimes, they hide some memory pieces.”
Xue Ying nodded.
“But whenever you acquire any item within the Light Ball Dimension, you would be expelled out of it. And it will be impossible for you to enter the same Light Ball Dimension henceforth.” Supreme Vast Ancient said, “I guess this should be a law set by Yuan to forbid us from taking too many things.”
“Mn.” Xue Ying nodded.
Previously in that dimension, he felt that the most mysterious item was that black dagger. It’s a pity that the difficulty of acquiring it was too high–beyond his current level. After all, that ‘black-armored caped figure’ was directly holding on to the black dagger, and he easily forced Xue Ying out of the Realm Fragment with a strike.
“But Supreme.” Xue Ying continued, “Only after entering did I discover that the dangers I faced within the Light Ball Dimension would merely consume the energy within the Snake-Tooth Bead. You are waiting at the node while I am risking it inside? This would consume the energy of my Snake-Tooth Bead at a much faster pace! Perhaps the energy of my Snake-Tooth Bead would have long been consumed before you even return back. That way, I wouldn’t be able to seek out those places I wish to go. Isn’t this slightly unfair?”
The oath had been sworn.
Xue Ying had to listen to the orders of Supreme Vast Ancient as long as the other party did not return back. But naturally, it was possible for him to ‘negotiate’ and switch the conditions.
Supreme Vast Ancient was startled. He laughed: “Rest assured. You have already gotten the most important item for me. As long as you succeed in acquiring another two items, you can move freely without caring about me any longer.”
He was very satisfied already with one piece.
If he were to get three pieces… that would be worth celebrating. Furthermore, Supreme Vast Ancient was clear that entering the Light Ball Dimension was not easy since it held suppression on the soul! And getting anything within was even harder. There were even some Light Ball Dimensions that contained just memory pieces.
“Alright.” Xue Ying nodded with a grin. Being granted ‘free will’ after getting three pieces of treasures was also abiding by the ‘orders of Supreme Vast Ancient’.
“Go! Let’s visit the next place.” Supreme Vast Ancient chuckled.
He had already arranged where to visit.
He would be visiting the subsequent places based on importance.
Both parties continued flying along the vascular channel. They passed through many nodes. These intersecting vascular channels would lead to many different Light Ball Dimensions.
Right when the two of them were flying––
“I failed yet again. Damn.”
Accompanied by a relatively furious voice, a green-robed man flew out of a Light Ball Dimension with a cold expression. He came out empty-handed with a disappointed look.
Xue Ying and Supreme Vast Ancient who were originally flying became stunned. They turned over.
That green-robed man similarly looked up.
Their gazes matched.
“Supreme Vast Ancient, Monarch Flying Snow?” That green-robed man was dumbstruck.
“Great Emperor North River?” Xue Ying was similarly aghast.
