Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1262: Entering the Snake Tooth Corridor
“Monarch Flying Snow, what you need to do is simple.” Supreme Vast Ancient said, “Just follow me into the Snake Tooth Corridor. After that, just do everything according to my arrangement without acting on yourself. You should be rest assured though since there are quite a few dangerous places in the Snake Tooth Corridor which require the protection from the ‘Snake-Tooth Bead’! Once the energy within the Snake-Tooth Bead is consumed to a certain amount, we would have to return. If we fail to return to the Broken Tooth Mountain Range before the energy in the Snake-Tooth Bead is fully consumed, then we would not be able to return.”
Xue Ying understood.
The Snake Tooth Corridor was incredibly dangerous, especially at its entrance and exit–those places could not be survived solely with one’s body. Instead, one had to rely on the energy within the ‘Snake-Tooth Bead’ or the ‘Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet’.
Entering and exiting the place required energy.
If the energy in the Snake-Tooth Bead was fully consumed before exiting the place, then one would most likely lose his or her life in the corridor maelstrom.
“Hence, we have to return when the Snake-Tooth Bead is left with just 30% energy.” Supreme Vast Ancient smiled at Xue Ying, “But you are different. You have many avatars. You can still continue your exploration in the Snake Tooth Corridor all the way until the energy in the Snake-Tooth Bead is consumed! I don’t think it would be of any influence to you if that avatar of yours failed to return right?”
Xue Ying nodded.
“Hence, before I head out, you have to listen to me. When I am about to leave the place, you could take the chance to explore on your free will.” Supreme Vast Ancient said, “Do you agree to my request?”
“Haha, since Supreme is willing to bestow a supreme treasure like the ‘Snake-Tooth Bead’ to me, and all I have to do is to help you out with an avatar, this would definitely be a beneficial task to me.” Xue Ying laughed.
Supreme Vast Ancient revealed a grin at that moment.
He did not feel that this Monarch Flying Snow would reject him. Nonetheless, he was afraid that the personality of the other party was too obstinate and unwilling to listen to his orders.
“I wonder how many avatars do I have to send in?” Xue Ying asked.
“An avatar is sufficient.” Supreme Vast Ancient explained, “The Snake-Tooth Bead would only protect a single avatar.”
“I understand.” Xue Ying nodded.
He had many avatars. Even if he lost an avatar within the Snake Tooth Corridor, it would be a minor matter.
This opportunity to enter the forbidden ground was something he could only hope for!
“Before I bestow the Snake-Tooth Bead to Monarch Flying Snow, I wish for Monarch Flying Snow to swear an oath.” Supreme Vast Ancient said. He did not dare to trust Xue Ying for such a supreme treasure.
“Alright.” Xue Ying did not hesitate. He immediately swore an oath.
Supreme Vast Ancient felt delighted too. He knew that cultivators emphasized greatly on oaths.
Both parties agreed with one another without hesitation, and Supreme Vast Ancient had already done his preparations. As for Xue Ying, he merely had to send an avatar over and did not require much preparations. That day, the two of them headed to the Snake Tooth Corridor.
“Hong hong hong~”
They immediately came to the Snake Tooth Corridor where that terrifying black maelstrom was.
This maelstrom contained an immense tearing force. Judging from the ringing sound it produced made Xue Ying wary. Though the sound coming from the maelstrom was not the most frightening aspect of it. Instead, the maelstrom had generated unseen ripples that penetrated through the fleshy body and soul, causing Xue Ying to feel fear from his heart. Looking up at the towering snake head which was as big as the territory of Southern Cloud Nation: ‘This Chaotic Origin Lifeform is close to the level of ‘Yuan’. Even if it has died for an unknown period of time, just some of its power is unimaginable! Terrifying. Truly terrifying! Furthermore, deducing from the size of an ordinary snake where its head is just a small section of its body, even though this Chaotic Origin Lifeform might have some differences as compared to a normal snake, its body should be much bigger!’
Since the snake head was as big as Southern Cloud Nation already, how long would the body be?
The ‘Summer Wind Ancient Nation’ might seem big–way bigger than the Southern Cloud Nation, but it was huge because of its land area! When comparing both nations in terms of length, Summer Wind Ancient Nation was merely a few times longer.
And this ‘snake’ body… should be way beyond the length of Summer Wind Ancient Nation.
“Who is that?”
“Supreme Vast Ancient? Monarch Flying Snow?”
The five Great Supremes had arranged for surveillance around the Snake Tooth Corridor. These guards immediately discovered the presence of Xue Ying and Supreme Vast Ancient.
One was a Supreme and the other the famous Monarch Flying Snow. These guards naturally did not dare to interfere.
“I still feel the shock whenever I come closer to it.” Supreme Vast Ancient said, “Such an innate Chaotic Origin Lifeform has a body so big that it far surpasses our imagination. And ‘Yuan’ actually reached where he is from a weak little cultivator. His body size is comparable to ours, yet he is so strong that he could even triumph over this terrifying Chaotic Origin Lifeform before us. Thinking about it, I feel envy and admiration for him.”
Xue Ying nodded.
“Let’s enter.” Supreme Vast Ancient said, “Don’t worry. As we get closer to the Snake Tooth Corridor, the energy within the Snake-Tooth Bead would naturally activate.”
The two of them rapidly went towards the black maelstrom.
As they flew closer, Xue Ying felt some special changes on the Snake-Tooth Bead placed in his bosom. That Snake-Tooth Bead immediately emitted a black light that covered the body of Xue Ying. Similarly, Supreme Vast Ancient had a black protection covering him too.
“Both of them have gone in.”
“Supreme Vast Ancient and Monarch Flying Snow have both entered the Snake Tooth Corridor.”
The guards standing by the distance felt shocked. It was fine that Supreme Vast Ancient entered. But Monarch Flying Snow actually entered the Snake Tooth Corridor alongside? The guards assigned by the other four Great Supremes immediately reported upwards.
This news spread really quickly.
And the Supremes got the news shortly after.
“They have gone in? Even Monarch Flying Snow has entered the Snake Tooth Corridor? Since both of them entered the corridor together, it seems likely that Supreme Vast Ancient has bestowed the supreme treasure to Monarch Flying Snow. Supreme Vast Ancient should be planning to explore the entire consciousness region this time round?” Supreme Lightning Firmament made his deduction after obtaining the news.
“What a Vast Ancient! He actually acquired two supreme treasures.”
“His fortune is terribly good.”
The other four Supremes felt envious.
Both the Snake-Tooth Bead and Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet were incredibly hard to get. Getting one was fine, but getting two was much harder! Supreme Vast Ancient originally had a Snake-Tooth Bead. It’s just that he planned on completing his preparations before entering the corridor. Who would have thought that during this period, Xue Ying first rose up and Supreme Vast Ancient actually found another Snake-Tooth Bead.
As a result, it facilitated this trip.
And other Supremes could only be envious of it.
“Hong long long–”
Their surroundings continued ringing.
Just as they flew into the black maelstrom, they felt a tearing force on their bodies. They could no longer control their bodies and were engulfed along the maelstrom.
It was fortunate they were protected by the black light. This black protection light might seem thin, yet it could isolate the destruction from the external force. Nonetheless, Xue YIng could feel the vast energy within the ‘Snake-Tooth Bead’ being consumed.
Supreme Vast Ancient and Xue Ying could only follow along the devouring force and flow down into the Snake Tooth Corridor.
As they proceeded ahead through the maelstrom, they could see space becoming distorted and shattered. They traveled at a rapid pace.
But this bloody mouth of the snake was too big. After all, just the snakehead itself was as big as the territory of Southern Cloud Nation. Just the time taken as they were engulfed into the maelstrom took an hour. Only then did the surrounding tearing forces from the maelstrom started dropping. Soon, Supreme Vast Ancient and Xue Ying regained control of their bodies.
“Are we in the mouth of the snake now?” Xue Ying looked around him. He saw an enormous snake tooth not too far from him.
That snake tooth was emitting a heart-palpitating aura.
“We should not stay here. The wind here would consume the energy in the Snake-Tooth Bead.” Supreme Vast Ancient urged, “Continue forward!”
Xue Ying nodded. Actually, as the power from the maelstrom dropped, the consumption of energy in the Snake-Tooth Bead had similarly reduced. But clearly, Supreme Vast Ancient cared about the usage of every single point of energy in the bead.
Supreme Vast Ancient brought Xue Ying and flew at high speed through the vast mouth of the snake.
They flew for quite some time before finally flying past an enormous snake tooth. This snake tooth was way taller than any mountain peak in Realm Heart Great Land.
“Where are we going?” Xue Ying asked.
“You just have to follow me. You will naturally know once we reach.” Supreme Vast Ancient chuckled. He was clearly familiar with this place. Having been here multiple times, he was not too willing to waste any strand of energy, bringing along Xue Ying at high speed towards the destination.
