Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1269: An Unstable Body
Outside the Light Ball Dimension.
Xue Ying walked along the vascular channel before arriving before a hopeful Supreme Vast Ancient.
“How was it?” Supreme Vast Ancient asked.
“It’s a dimension filled with memory fragments. There weren’t any treasures at all.” Xue Ying answered.
“Oh.” Supreme Vast Ancient pondered before turning to another region. memory fragments would only be beneficial to those who personally examined them! Under that soul suppression, he could not enter. Hence, this Light Ball Dimension was useless. But he did not care either since ‘memory fragments’ would only be useful when they were related to what he cultivated in. Otherwise, its usefulness could be discarded.
The first time Xue Ying entered the consciousness, he acquired that piece of ‘fiery-red feather’. Hence, he thought that it was not that hard to bring a treasure out.
But subsequently, he found he was wrong.
Because there were only several hundred Light Balls within the consciousness! Excluding those that he could not enter and those that had been visited by Supreme Vast Ancient before, there were only 56 Light Ball Dimensions that he could enter. Of these 56 Light Ball Dimensions, only 33 had treasures within! An absolute majority of them contained frightening grandeur that easily swept Xue Ying away. He could not take the treasures away at all.
In the end, it was possible for Xue Ying to take the treasures away in just seven Light Balls, and that was merely a possibility.
Xue Ying staggered out of a Light Ball Dimension. After landing on the vascular channel, it could be seen that he currently held a piece of black scale.
“You got it?” Supreme Vast Ancient immediately revealed a joyous look when he saw that. He immediately flew over without caring about consuming the energy from his Snake-Tooth Bead.
“I got it in the end after passing through many dangers.” Xue Ying looked at the black scale in his hand with lament. What attracted him most in that Light Ball Dimension was actually a fang. That fang was incredibly sharp, yet the suppression from that fang was too strong, preventing Xue Ying from even getting close to it. It might be possible for an expert on the level of Supreme Vast Ancient to force his way to that item.
As for this black scale, even though it was difficult, Xue Ying succeeded after five tries.
“Good.” As Supreme Vast Ancient took over the black scale, he discovered a deeply submerged destructive energy. At that instance, he revealed a grin and turned to Xue Ying, “Monarch Flying Snow, as mentioned, according to our agreement, you are free to go once you helped me get three pieces of treasures.”
“Initially, I thought it was slightly easy for me to gather three treasures. Who would have thought that after trying so many times, I have consumed more than half the energy in my Snake-Tooth Bead.” Xue Ying helplessly said, “Those who had to return would most likely be forced to go back.”
But he did not plan to return.
He wanted to make full use of the Snake-Tooth Bead until its very last bit of energy.
“Haha, it is all thanks to Monarch Flying Snow this time.” Supreme Vast Ancient was satisfied with his harvest. He continued, “My Snake-Tooth Bead is still filled with plenty of energy and I am planning to visit other places. Do you want to come?”
“No thanks.” Xue Ying answered.
Supreme Vast Ancient nodded: “Then I’ll make my move first.”
He immediately transformed into a stream of light and left. The entire Snake Tooth Corridor was huge. Even the ‘brain’ of the snake very spacious. Its consciousness region was a slightly more special place, though it was merely a little corner of the entire head. Supreme Vast Ancient soon pierced through the membrane and left the consciousness. He chose to visit other places of the Snake Tooth Corridor.
“Sou.” Xue Ying soon left the consciousness too.
After spending a few breaths later, he crossed through the blood-colored membrane of the consciousness, following along the path which he took to come. His flying speed was much slower than Supreme Vast Ancient’s. He finally arrived at his destination only after three days.
“I am finally here.”
Xue Ying arrived at a towering ‘Snake Tooth’. This snake tooth was pitch black, and it contained many cracks surrounding it.
He immediately charged up to the peak of the snake tooth.
“Chi chi chi.” Many void cracks appeared. Xue Ying easily evaded them before they appeared at his position. Right when he reached the peak of the black snake tooth, he could easily see how sharp the peak was. Xue Ying could easily imagine what would happen when this snake tooth was used to bite on the enemy–it was likely much more frightening than the simplified Chaotic Origin Weapon he had.
The peak of the towering black snake tooth was so sharp that it felt like an array formed from countless weaving blades. Xue Ying began closely examining it. This tip of the tooth began magnifying under his vision… eventually, it became bigger than even a great land. Xue Ying could clearly see the internal structure of this ‘tip’.
‘Interesting.’ Xue Ying was startled. He frowned, rapidly descending downwards before finding a location near the top right between two intersecting edges.
That was when he began comprehending over the mysteries behind this snake tooth.
There were no dangers whatsoever here by the broken void region, and neither would it consume energy from the Snake-Tooth Bead. Hence, Xue Ying could cultivate all he wanted.
One avatar of his remained in the Light Ball Dimension perusing through those memory fragments and comprehending them.
While the other avatar with the Snake-Tooth Bead sat at the peak of the void snake tooth.
In reality, Xue Ying had been attracted the moment he saw the internal structure of the ‘void snake tooth’, at how it was formed by many intersecting blades. Why? Because this structure was seemingly similar to the which he deduced. The third level of the Chaotic Origin Refined Body was what Xue Ying planned on relying to perfect his body cultivation.
The ‘preliminary version’ previously was created after the clash of wisdom between he and Emperor Summer. And this preliminary version enabled both he and Emperor Summer to own the strength of ordinary unparalleled existence just solely with their body.
Nonetheless, the ‘preliminary version’ remained too simple and crude. It had many areas that could be improved on.
That was when Xue Ying and Emperor Summer chose to part ways on which path to take!
‘This void snake tooth.’ Xue Ying became engrossed in it.
The internal structure of intersecting blades felt truly mysterious.
Xue Ying was absorbing the essence of it.
Before fusing them with what he already grasped. Finally, the ‘second version’ of the third level of Chaotic Origin Refined Body was formed.
In the blink of an eye.
1.8 billion years since Xue Ying entered the Snake Tooth Corridor.
At the peak of a towering black snake tooth, a white-robed Xue Ying remained seated between two ‘blades’. He revealed a grin: ‘I’ll definitely succeed this time! I shall have a try since it is considered quite perfect in my opinion!’ Xue Ying extended his right hand before starting transforming right from the smallest constituents.
That was also the process of creating a body cultivation technique, to attempt it by using one’s body. During this process, one would frequently cause his body to crumble and dissolve.
But as long as the soul remained fine, the cultivator could easily re-condense the fleshy body with a thought.
“Chi chi chi~” Xue Ying attempted with his right hand, only to see the nails on his right hand becoming sharp like a divine weapon. The skin on his fingers had also become incredibly tough–they were like formed by weaving many blades together, causing great strength and energy to accumulate by his right hand.
Xue Ying’s expression changed after he altered his right hand.
His right hand contained a powerful energy, causing his body to suffer from a huge burden. It seemed as if his entire body would collapse should he continue on with the process.
Even by maintaining a ‘powered right hand’, the energy in his body was rapidly consumed.
‘Why would this be? The energy in my body is consumed at such a rapid pace despite just maintaining my transformed right hand?’ Xue Ying felt anxious. Even his fleshy body would collapse after the time taken to brew a cup of tea.
Xue Ying shook his head.
Theoretically, it was possible to reach eternal once the fleshy body was perfected. For instance, the energy consumption for the ‘preliminary version’ of the third level of Chaotic Origin Refined Body could be neglected. It was also very stable.
And now, this ‘second version’ which he comprehended felt unstable. Just maintaining his right hand required a huge price.
‘But this is already the most perfected version I comprehended.’ Xue Ying shook his head. He questioned himself, and knew he could not improve it further. But it appeared that the outcome was still far too lacking as compared to what he expected it to be.
‘What about its strength?’ Xue Ying attempted with a hurl.
The five fingers on his right hand, regardless if they were his nails or skin, perfectly converged the energy from the many intersecting blades. Xue Ying easily clawed out five cracks with them. Looking at it, Xue Ying felt startled. This was after all, the Snake Tooth Corridor. It was amazing for him to produce such an outcome: ‘Even though I haven’t reached the grand perfection level, its power has finally reached the Emperor level.’
Both he and Emperor Summer sought after grand perfection.
Theoretically speaking, reaching grand perfection with the third level Chaotic Origin Refined Body would allow the cultivator to attain at least a half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body! That meant ‘grand perfection Emperor’ strength. The two of them even sought to rely on this and jump out of the cage, becoming a true Chaotic Origin Lifeform.
‘No matter what, I have at least attained the power of an initial Emperor.’ Xue Ying smiled at himself, ‘Becoming a true Chaotic Origin Lifeform is never easy. The journey to becoming a half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform is still immensely far.’
Previously, the ‘preliminary version’ of the Chaotic Origin Refined Body contained the power of a grand perfection King.
And now, even though it was not stable, Xue Ying had at least reached the strength of an initial Emperor. It should be approximately 30% of what he could achieve after using the Chaotic Origin Weapon, Azure River Spear.
