Chapter 1294 – Retaliation
‘There are two issues regarding using my treasures to exchange for items!’
‘Scriptures at the middle stage God Emperor level are usually the core inheritance of a huge sect. They would not easily spread it to outsiders! So the first issue is for me to bring out treasures of sufficient value such that they are willing to make this an exceptional case. After eliminating God Emperor Bu Ya and God Emperor Wind Tiger, I have sufficient treasures to achieve this.’ Xue Ying thought. Treasures worth more than 1,000 pieces of Chaotic Origin Crystal Jades could most likely be traded for two middle stage God Emperor scriptures.
‘The second issue is: once I show my intention to trade, even a fool knows that I own sufficient treasures.’ Xue Ying murmured inwardly, ‘It is highly possible for a robbery to happen.’
If he was a famous God Emperor, the other party might not easily move against him.
But killing a God Monarch and snatch his treasures away?
That was a huge allure!
‘Hmph! I can exchange my treasures for theirs, but I have to do it quick and leave at the first moment! If an expert caught me before I leave, then I can only count on his misfortune.’ Xue Ying thought. There were many terrifying existences in this Divine Realm that Xue Ying could not handle, though those existences would usually show disdain for what Xue Ying had.
‘Let’s do this then!’ Xue Ying made his decision as he enjoyed his meal in this pub.
Early the next day.
A man garbed in moon-white robe carrying a divine sword came to one of the biggest and most luxurious cities, ‘Cloudy Sunlight City’. He arrived outside the entrance of a huge palace floating in midair, the ‘Cloudy Sunlight Palace’.
There were a total of two Ascendant Dao of Void middle stage God Emperor scriptures. Even though they were circulating in public, only huge sects had the capability to keep the original copies! The information that Xue Ying collected previously naturally pointed out where these scriptures were located. After going through some filtering and selection, Xue Ying chose to visit the Cloudy Sunlight Palace as his first destination.
Cloudy Sunlight City, Cloudy Sunlight Palace. This was a famous place across the entire Divine Realm. Even though Cloudy Sunlight Palace Master was only a middle stage God Emperor, rumors spoke of Cloudy Sunlight Palace Master being one of the madams of a Chaotic Origin Ancestral God––the one who started one of the three great royal clans, ‘Golden Sacred Clan’! Given her identity, it was natural for Cloudy Sunlight Palace Master’s status to be transcendental.
‘Hearsay this Cloudy Sunlight Palace Master hated killing the most. In her palace, nobody would dare to kill me and snatch my treasures away. As for leaving the palace? It is fine for me to slip away as fast as possible.’ Xue Ying thought.
Xue Ying flew to the main entrance of the Cloudy Sunlight Palace. A group of female protectors stood before the Cloudy Sunlight Palace. When Xue Ying came, they turned their gazes towards him, causing Xue Ying to stop obediently. He bowed: “This one is called God Monarch Cool Breeze, an Ascendant who cultivates the Dao of Void. I came especially to Cloudy Sunlight Palace and is willing to present three Ember Mist Flowers for a glimpse of the Ascendant cultivation scripture
“Present three Ember Mist Flowers?” These female protectors hesitated. One of them said: “Wait here momentarily. I’ll report this upwards.”
Even though he planned on exchanging for a chance to study the scripture, he could not say it so directly and upfront.
Experts had their reputation to keep.
“You are God Monarch Cool Breeze?” After the time taken to brew a cup of tea, an old granny came out. She emitted an aura at the early stage God Emperor level. After all, the Cloudy Sunlight Palace was a famous place in the entire Divine Realm. Even though the Palace Master was slightly weak, they had an abundance of experts. Just the God Emperors in this palace numbered more than a hundred!
“Yes.” Xue Ying acknowledged. He positioned himself as a devout Ascendant seeking only for the Dao.
“Come with me.” The old granny turned around and entered the palace.
Xue Ying felt joy sprouting in his heart. He hurriedly followed behind.
“Remember, you must not wander off in the Cloudy Sunlight Palace. Always follow behind me.” The old granny swept her gaze across Xue Ying.
“Yes, yes.” Xue Ying obediently acknowledged.
“Hearsay you are willing to present three Ember Mist Flowers just for a chance to read the
“We Ascendants do not have any bloodlines belonging to the Chaotic Origin Ancestral Gods. Cultivation is hard for us. Even though I have always wished to acquire the scripture of my predecessor, I was too weak and poor. Fortunately, I discovered three stalks of Ember Mist Flowers in the Great Wilderness not too long ago. Which is why I dared to come here to present them for a chance to read the scripture.” Xue Ying said.
The old granny nodded after hearing that: “Even though all you Ascendants have high comprehension abilities, you guys do not have any bloodlines at all. Hence, few could reach the God Emperor realm. Seeing that you are willing to present three Ember Mist Flowers as a gift, it shows that you are sincere. My Vice-Palace Master who was made known about this matter has agreed to your request. After gaining the scripture, your chance of breaking through to the God Emperor Realm might perhaps be significantly boosted.”
“Many thanks to the Vice-Palace Master for her mercy.” Xue Ying said.
The three Vice-Palace Masters of the Cloudy Sunlight Palace were all women. Rumors spoke that they were sent over by the Chaotic Origin Ancestral God as protection for Cloudy Sunlight Palace Master. Most of the time, the Vice-Palace Masters were the ones managing the daily and miscellaneous tasks.
Both of them spoke as they walked. They traveled at an incredibly quick pace. Soon, they arrived before a pavilion.
“Emissary Ying, Vice-Palace Master has already given the orders. This here is the scripture.” There was a protector who came out immediately from within the pavilion, passing this scripture over to the old granny.
“Mn.” The old granny turned around after receiving the scripture. She did not give it directly to Xue Ying. Instead, she looked at him.
Xue Ying immediately understood. He flipped his hand, causing a long stone box to appear. Opening the stone box, one could see three stalks of flowers that were lightly pulsing in blue light. He passed it over to that old granny: “These are the three stalks of Ember Mist Flowers.”
Only then did the old granny take over the box and throw the scripture to Xue Ying: “Hurry up and have a look. Once you are done, pass it back to me.”
“That is natural.” Xue Ying immediately flipped through. His consciousness was sent into the scripture. With his powerful soul, he quickly memorised the entire content of this scripture.
The first look had given Xue Ying quite a surprise.
Indeed, it was written by a middle stage God Emperor.
In terms of the attainments for the Dao of Void, the creator of this cultivation scripture had reached a level beyond his. The
Of course, the current cultivation technique had a limit––middle stage God Emperor! It was considered quite powerful already. Xue Ying’s personal creation in the Realm Heart Great Land––the Chaotic Origin Refined Body cultivation technique would at most allow the cultivator to reach the ‘early stage God Emperor’ strength. Furthermore, it was unstable! But that was because his cultivation age was young. Xue Ying believed he would definitely surpass the other party eventually.
It’s just that this world had given him plenty of ideas.
And learning these scriptures would enable him to grow at a faster pace.
‘At least I got my hands on one of it.’ Xue Ying felt joy.
After learning the scripture, Xue Ying naturally left the Cloudy Sunlight Palace quickly.
“Where is he?”
A figure flew out of the Cloudy Sunlight Palace. It was a gray-robed woman. She swept her gaze across the place, “What a quick escape.”
Presenting three stalks of Ember Mist Flowers just for a chance to view the scripture.
The higher-ups of the Cloudy Sunlight Palace naturally knew of this. Some of them were even ‘tempted’ since it was too easy to kill a God Monarch! They did not dare to act recklessly within the Cloudy Sunlight Palace, but once Xue Ying left the palace, some of them had rushed out as well. It’s a pity that Xue Ying was already long gone after executing his Great Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique.
His objective at the Cloudy Sunlight Palace was met easily.
Following that, Xue Ying exchanged another identity. He disguised himself as a blade martial artist before entering the ‘Faman City’. Who would have thought that there was a God Emperor that acted once he entered the City Master Residence! He came to assassinate Xue Ying! Without given a choice, Xue Ying could only ‘go along the flow’ and wipe out the other party. After killing him, Xue Ying immediately left by executing his Great Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique!
After that, he had to change his identity before paying the ‘City of Rain and Wind’ a visit. This time, even though he was ambushed once again, that was after he acquired the scripture. The moment he stepped out of the City Master Residence, even before he located a secluded place to execute his Great Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique, the enemy had moved in on him! And this time, it was two early stage God Emperors that acted.
As a result, Xue Ying could only eliminate the problem. He then left once again by executing his Great Destruction Realm Teleportation Technique.
High Mountain City. Inside Xue Ying’s closed meditation room. A violet-robed male suddenly appeared here. He was Xue Ying that had changed his appearances.
‘After moving from place to place, I still have the easiest time negotiating with Cloudy Sunlight Palace. The other two cities have moved in against me. Adding up that attempt in River Origin City, I have killed five early stage God Emperors in total.’ Xue Ying shook his head. He did not show mercy. After all, the three latter assailants came to kill him without having any relevant information on Xue Ying. Thus, Xue Ying would definitely not show any mercy in his retaliation.
