Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1239: Underworld Emperor pays Xue Ying a Visit
The look on Undying Underworld Emperor kept changing.
The impact of this news hit him too greatly. Previously, even though Xue Ying had disrupted his ‘sacrificial offerings’, causing him to stumble on his refinement of the Death Walker, deep in his heart, he did not feel that Xue Ying could ever threaten him.
Firstly, it was destined for this ‘Monarch Flying Snow’ to take a very long time before he could reach the final realm. This was easily seen by the number of final realm cultivators in Realm Heart Great Land. Ultimately, breaking through to the final realm was too difficult.
Secondly, even if Monarch Flying Snow broke through to the final realm! Undying Underworld Emperor felt that even if Monarch Flying Snow had a Chaotic Origin Weapon, he could still match up to the other party after igniting his heart blood. Hence, it was impossible for Monarch Flying Snow to threaten his life. Even if he wasn’t too willing to ignite too much heart blood, he could easily escape into the ‘Broken Tooth Mountain Range’. After all, he did not have much to worry about at Realm Heart Great Land.
Reaching his level, he no longer had any other concerns. His sole goal was to become a Chaotic Origin Lifeform! He had failed in his crusade previously. Hence, he was left with the path in Broken Tooth Mountain Range!
‘At the worst, I’ll simply hide in Broken Tooth Mountain Range.’ Undying Underworld Emperor was originally calm.
But now, he was stumped!
‘This Monarch Flying Snow is too famous in Broken Tooth Mountain Range. All parties are competing to get close with him. If I were to escape into the Broken Tooth Mountain Range, he just has to give a command, and most likely, there would be several Great Emperors and even Supremes willing to act for him! I’ll be doomed if that happened!” Undying Underworld Emperor felt anxious.
‘I am not very safe in the Realm Heart Great Land either way. In the end, I still underestimated Monarch Flying Snow.’
‘The moment he breaks through to the final realm! With his Chaotic Origin Weapon, his strength would not be any lesser than after I ignite my heart blood. He even has that terrifying Mirage and Illusory Realm Technique which could cause Emperors to fall! I would most likely be weakened greatly as a result.’ Undying Underworld Emperor thought, ‘The moment I am weakened, I would no longer be his opponent. I would simply be chased by him! And once I consumed my heart blood, my strength would further decrease. And once that happened, I would simply lose my life.’
Undying Underworld Emperor could easily foresee what might happen.
His rationality told him that this was something very possible!
With the terrifying cultivation speed this Monarch Flying Snow had, he was clearly a talented monster! Just the battle at Flying Snow City showed how profound his understanding in the Dao of Void was. He even had a supreme secret impartation! Furthermore, his reputation in ‘Broken Tooth Mountain Range’ had become so great that it was destined for him to acquire many benefits. Many World Masters even took the initiative to shower him with gifts. Monarch Flying Snow should be able to obtain some of the wondrous opportunities in the sky-floating islands easily as well.
Hence, with so many parties helping him, this Monarch Flying Snow would most likely be breaking through to the final realm not too far from now!
‘The moment he reaches the final realm, I’ll be doomed.’
‘He has that illusory realm technique coupled with his prowess in close combat. I would definitely die even if I ignite all my heart blood. Even if I choose to escape to the Broken Tooth Mountain Range, I would be seeking my death either!’
‘I have nowhere to go!’
The eyes of Undying Underworld Emperor became cold and even slightly mad.
He was not willing to admit defeat so easily. In the past, he had competed with many other terrifying experts from different Origin Worlds. He even gradually researched out a way of refining the Death Walker, and succeeded once doing so! As a result, he became famous! Eventually, he was forced to sacrifice his Death Walker. That was how he escaped back to his hometown Realm Heart Great Land successfully.
One had to know, there were many more experts who were not weaker than him–some were even more outstanding! Eventually, they all died and fell in that world filled with despair.
‘Monarch Flying Snow, we shall see what you choose in the end.’ Undying Underworld Emperor made his decision.
“I shall first return. We can meet again in the future.” Undying Underworld Emperor stood.
“Why are you in a rush this time?” The plump old man chuckled as he drank the wine.
“Mn, it is due time for me to return.”
Undying Underworld Emperor did not elaborate. He turned around before leaving.
If he knew about Xue Ying’s reputation in the Broken Tooth Mountain Range, he would definitely not enter the Broken Tooth Mountain Range either! This place was too dangerous for him!
Undying Underworld Emperor returned back to the Realm Heart Great Land silently without others being aware of it. The Realm Heart Great Land was restricted by the laws set by ‘Yuan’. Hence, the true experts from the Broken Tooth Mountain Range could never enter. Naturally, there was nobody who could threaten him. But this was ‘temporary’. The moment Xue Ying broke through, that would mean imminent calamity for him.
“Hu hu hu~”
The gale whistled. Snow also fell from the sky.
Xue Ying sat by himself under his pavilion drinking wine. The wine was kept warm. There was also an unseen ripple protecting the pavilion, preventing the gale from entering it. Snowflakes were whirling around amidst the fierce weather. Despite the world being dark and dimmed, the pavilion remained peaceful and quiet with the fragrance from the wine pervading it.
“Mn?” Xue Ying frowned. He looked over at a direction.
A ripple descended.
The surrounding wind stopped blowing. The snow scattered apart. That ripple rapidly caused the world energy to condense into a figure. It was a handsome young man wearing luxurious golden robe and a crown.
‘Undying Underworld Emperor actually came to my place?’ Xue Ying felt strange. Even though unparalleled existences had visited his Flying Snow City, it was unexpected for Undying Underworld Emperor to come! After all, the enmity between both parties was something the entire Realm Heart Great Land knew.
“Underworld Emperor, what are you here for?” Xue Ying said.
“Why aren’t you inviting me in for a sit?” Undying Underworld Emperor said with a smile.
Xue Ying’s eyebrows twitched. If this was the true body of Undying Underworld Emperor, he might not dare to get close to the other party. He would simply sweep his Chaotic Origin Weapon ‘Azure River Spear’ over. He would definitely not let the other party enter Flying Snow City at all. But since this was merely an incarnation, he naturally did not place Underworld Emperor in his eyes. Since the other party came with manner, he would treat the other party likewise.
“Have a seat, Underworld Emperor.” Xue Ying remained seated. He did not stand to invite the other party since he did not like Undying Underworld Emperor at all.
“Hahaha…” Undying Underworld Emperor came in laughing. He sat himself down comfortably before taking up the wine flask by the side naturally. Waving his hand, he condensed a cup using the world energy before pouring for himself. He drank a cup before saying, “This wine seems ordinary. But since this is the wine of Monarch Flying Snow, its value would have increased by many times over.”
Xue Ying carefully observed this Undying Underworld Emperor.
The other party actually spoke so politely and even flattered him. This did not seem like the personality of Undying Underworld Emperor at all. Previously, the enmity between both parties was huge. He had disrupted a huge affair of Underworld Emperor! And Undying Underworld Emperor even became so furious that he sought to wipe out the entire Flying Snow City just to vent his anger. And now, he came to flatter Xue Ying?
“Monarch Flying Snow, you and I do have a huge grievance previously.” Undying Underworld Emperor said, “But talking about that, I believe that your personality is too unyielding–you can’t condone any devils at all. You aren’t targeting me in particular. Rather, you are targeting all devils.”
“Yes.” Xue Ying nodded, “It is good that Underworld Emperor understands that.”
“But you ultimately disrupted my affair.” Undying Underworld Emperor said, “In this path of cultivation, you actually cut off my Dao Path, and as a result, created an enmity with me where both of us can’t exist under the same heaven together!”
Xue Ying continued listening silently.
“But now, this enmity can be dissolved.” Undying Underworld Emperor added with a smile.
“How?” Xue Ying replied.
“Haha, Monarch Flying Snow has hidden yourself incredibly deep. Currently, your reputation in Broken Tooth Mountain Range has spread far and wide. The 13 Emperors, the eight Great Emperors, the five Great Supremes… I believe nobody dares to underestimate you at all. You can easily become a VIP of any Supremes. Most Great Emperors would have to take the initiative in inviting you over and give you gifts in the future as well.” Undying Underworld Emperor said.
Xue Ying’s eyebrows twitched. He chuckled: “Underworld Emperor’s intelligence is really fast and abundant.”
“It’s only because the Natives and our Realm Heart Great Land do not converse much. Otherwise, this news would spread out across the world already. I believe in a thousand years or so, the unparalleled existences would know about this.” Undying Underworld Emperor said, “The reason I came over is to find Monarch Flying Snow for help. Once you help me, we can be friends in the future. I’ll no longer slaughter those weak little ants.”
“What do you need help with?” Xue Ying asked. If both parties ended up in a bigger conflict, things would not be optimal either since Xue Ying could not stop Undying Underworld Emperor from slaughtering more.
“Help me gather a total of 15 ‘Dark Flowers’ before sending me into the ‘Snake Tooth Corridor’.” Undying Underworld Emperor said, “As long as you help me with this, our enmity will be dissolved. I can even promise to help you do things! As for me no longer killing more? Haha, as long as I can enter the Snake Tooth Corridor, I’ll definitely not return to the Realm Heart Great Land. Naturally, I could no longer create more chaos in the Realm Heart Great Land.”
Xue Ying’s expression changed when he heard that.
Every single dark Flower was incredibly previous. Its value was not any less than a droplet of ‘Streaming Light Spiritual Milk’.
But 16 flowers, given his influence in the Broken Tooth Mountain Range, was still doable if he thought of ways to make use of the favors from others!
But ‘Snake Tooth Corridor’ was a legendary forbidden ground in the entire Broken Tooth Mountain Range!
Want to enter?
That was even a legend in the intelligence reports of the Native Clans! Only the five Great Supremes could possibly enter. Most Great Emperors had never entered that place.
If he planned on entering the mysterious Snake Tooth Corridor, he would have to ask the five Great Supremes for help! If those Supremes had an opportunity to enter, they would have long entered. Even Great Emperors could not get this privilege.
“You plan on entering the Snake Tooth Corridor?” Xue Ying looked at Undying Underworld Emperor. This request was simply too much.
