Chapter 1267 – Departure
Xue Ying originally had much puzzling thoughts over the Broken Tooth Mountain Range, for instance, why there were so many ambient dangers within the sky-floating islands–a corrosive gas existed that could instantaneously kill unparalleled existences. That was more dangerous than what fighting against a Great Emperor! Many of such kinds of ambient dangers existed. Regardless, unparalleled existences had the chance of escaping when they fought with ‘Emperors’ from the Death Destruction Clan at least.
Yet the environment was noxious! That felt slightly illogical.
Because ‘Realm Heart Great Land’ had been created by Yuan, and the place was overall quite safe. The Broken Tooth Mountain Range was also supposedly created by ‘Yuan’. Even if it was done for training, why the need to create such noxious environment that was so abnormally strong? It would likely cost a great price to engineer such an environment. In reality, those ambient dangers did not test the cultivators. Instead, it relied on ‘luck’ and experiences.
Like by sending avatars to ‘die’ and accumulate experience.
This would not help with training the cultivators. Then why the need to pay such a huge price in creating these ambient dangers without even serving any purpose?
According to the legends, there were many dangers within the Broken Tooth Mountain Range that were teleported over by ‘Yuan’ from other locations. Regardless, there were various kinds of sayings. But when Xue Ying pondered over it for in detail, he found that there were many contradictions.
‘So it seems.’
‘Everything has been condensed from the two corpses.’ Xue Ying was enlightened, ‘That’s right too. These two Chaotic Origin Lifeforms are tremendously huge. A corpse of theirs is comparable to the size of one-tenth of an ordinary Origin World. And two of such huge corpses could indeed be used to form the huge Broken Tooth Mountain Range.’ Xue Ying nodded.
Just the surface of a corpse was one-tenth of an ordinary Origin World.
In reality, these Chaotic Origin Lifeforms had even longer length. Like that huge snake for instance–this snake was even longer than an Origin World. Its corpse lay meandered, yet it still spread across the entire Broken Tooth Mountain Range.
‘But these two corpses should have been prepared by Yuan.’ Xue Ying thought.
Like the Snake Tooth Corridor for instance.
Or the law restriction set between Broken Tooth Mountain Range and Realm Heart Great Land which prevented those of a certain level from entering the Realm Heart Great Land.
The Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet and Snake-Tooth Bead were two supreme artifacts that could only be activated after entering the Snake Tooth Corridor. That should also be a law fixed by Yuan. It was naturally easier for him to fixate such laws on the foundation of the two Chaotic Origin corpses before evolving them into worlds.
“Amazing. What an amazing technique.” Xue Ying said. He finally understood the capabilities of existences like ‘Yuan’ world creation.
“Yuan is naturally formidable. Even I have heard of some legends regarding him. He is ranked at the top of all Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.” Supreme Vast Ancient sighed, “Even I was quite fortunate to awaken to the final level, becoming the Ancestor of my clan. Even though the clan is powerful, the few of us who have awakened are only nascent ancestors. We would most likely have to experience and overcome many more trials and tribulations before we could even reach the level of these two Chaotic Origin Lifeforms. Even then, we would still be weaker than ‘Yuan’.”
Xue Ying nodded.
Yuan had left behind two terrifying corpses for the sake of grooming the juniors, creating an entirely new world–the Broken Tooth Mountain Range.
And it was likely that many more Chaotic Origin Lifeforms had died in the hands of ‘Yuan’.
As Xue Ying conversed with Supreme Vast Ancient, they temporarily ignored Great Emperor North River.
“Vast Ancient, are you truly thinking of not giving me any routes to walk on?” Great Emperor North River said.
Xue Ying looked at Great Emperor North River, feeling puzzled. This Light Ball Dimension seemed to be a dead-end. Even though there were many strange objects around, there did not seem to be any paths of escape. Unless Great Emperor North River still had some sort of hidden trump card?
“North River, you are too ruthless.” Supreme Vast Ancient said, “Even the five Supremes are merely opponents in your eyes. I admit that the gap between us isn’t that huge. You have even employed the help of 36 God Generals. Most Supremes are merely too lazy to make a big fuss over you, yet you offended Monarch Flying Snow, and that is a huge mistake in itself. Just Monarch Flying Snow alone could influence the outcome of the battle. He is way more useful than a group of God Generals. Today, even two Supremes could not eliminate you easily. But with Monarch Flying Snow around, eliminating you becomes an easy task.”
The expression of Great Emperor North River became colder by a few notches.
He was still confident of escaping even when there were two Supremes around.
But Xue Ying could weaken him greatly–all the way until he reached the level of a God General. And for a God General to battle against a Supreme? That was seeking death!
“I originally thought of focusing on my cultivation before grasping a chance to step into the Supreme Level.” Great Emperor North River growled, “But who would have thought that the two of you came in despite me conserving the energy of my Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet. What’s more is for the two of you to come together at once? When did it become so easy to acquire a Supreme Artifact?”
“North River, I merely wanted to comprehend the Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet without consuming any energy within. I’ll naturally return it to you once the time comes. I even sworn an oath. Unless you think I would rather choose to cut my path of cultivation and backstab you?” Xue Ying said, “Since you did not plan on giving others a path to walk on, you can only blame yourself for karma!”
“I believe that you will not violate the oath. But once the news regarding the Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet spread, even Supremes would get greedy over it. Who knows if something might happen?” Great Emperor North River retorted back.
“Can’t you and I work together to fight back against the Supremes?” Xue Ying replied.
“There might be possible variables emerging once the time frame increases. It is still better for me to get it and enter the Snake Tooth Corridor.” Great Emperor North River sneered.
By the side, Supreme Vast Ancient added: “If you did not backstabbed Flying Snow, you might possibly still get this Supreme Artifact and possibly another in the future.”
“I, North River, am satisfied to acquire one piece of Supreme Artifact while still at the Great Emperor level. I have never thought wistfully of getting another artifact.” Great Emperor North River indifferently replied, “And given the personality of Monarch Flying Snow, I doubt he even liked my personality in the first place. If not for my ambition of wanting to conquer those worlds, and if not for those ants, this Monarch Flying Snow wouldn’t have chosen to help me.”
“Have you made your decision?” Supreme Vast Ancient suddenly said.
Xue Ying felt puzzled.
What had he decided on?
“You guys aren’t even giving me a path to retreat, so what choice do I have?” Great Emperor North River sneered, “Hmph, each of you five Great Supremes do not dare to take a gamble. Instead, all of you have been holing up within the Broken Tooth Mountain Range. Alright, let me go. Who knows I might achieve the final awakening one step earlier than all of you.”
Great Emperor North River then turned to Xue Ying with a grin: “Monarch Flying Snow, you are the strongest expert in the Dao of Soul within the history of Realm Heart Great Land and Broken Tooth Mountain Range. After helping me, you did not choose to give me a path of retreat. Haha, that’s fine too since this is my way of doing things. I do not give myself any path to retreat either. Haha, perhaps the next time we meet, I might even be a Chaotic Origin Lifeform, haha…”
The moment he finished speaking, Great Emperor North River directly clashed against a piece of huge black rock by the side.
Ripples formed on the surface of that black rock. When Great Emperor North River clashed against it, he simply tunneled within the rock and disappeared from the place.
“What!” Xue Ying was startled.
Great Emperor North River did not choose to escape. Instead, he fled into this seemingly Light Ball Dimension which did not have any paths.
Supreme Vast Ancient did not act against him after the other party arrived here. And it felt like Great Emperor North River had some kind of reliance.
And now, everything was clear.
So he could escape to a faraway place by relying on this black rock by his side.
“What exactly is this black rock?” Xue Ying asked immediately.
“Come over and extend your senses. You will know about it after that.” Supreme Vast Ancient explained, “This is left behind by Yuan for us. He had also left behind this rock as another path for you cultivators from the Realm Heart Great Land! This is the biggest Light Ball Dimension within the consciousness. We are also able to witness the real side of Broken Tooth Mountain Range. At the same time… there is a path that leads out of the Broken Tooth Mountain Range and also out of the Realm Heart Great Land into a slightly more special territory within the Chaotic Origin Dimension.”
As Supreme Vast Ancient spoke, his eyes were filled with envy and expectations.
Xue Ying had already arrived by the huge black rock. He permeated it with a strand of his consciousness.
“Since you are unable to progress further, then go and visit other civilizations. Tempering yourself under a different environment with experts of a different civilizations might allow you to grasp that Dao to ‘Eternity’, allowing you to jump out of the cage and the restrictions for many civilizations. By then, you would become a magnificent Chaotic Origin Lifeform.” A grand voice resounded in the consciousness of Xue Ying.
Xue Ying immediately understood it at that moment.
This voice should come from ‘Yuan’. And this should be the final path for those experts in Realm Heart Great Land and Broken Tooth Mountain Range that failed to break through within the ‘Snake Tooth Corridor’.
