Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1315: Lasting Ages
‘What amazing strength.’ Even though Xue Ying held an absolute upper hand, he could feel how frightening Iron Dragon City Master was. Even though the other party’s combat techniques had become much cruder, his executed strength greatly weakened, and Xue Ying could prevent the enemy from touching him by relying on the profundity of his techniques––Xue Ying overwhelmed the other party, and he could attack the other party however he wanted!
‘His body is too strong.’ When Xue Ying unsheathed the sharp sword on his back, just as he slashed his sword on the neck of Iron Dragon City Master, Iron Dragon City Master’s body was protected by the three layers of energy along with his scales. Furthermore, the outermost energy layer was constantly destroying the surrounding void. In the end, Xue Ying could only rely on some techniques that avoided the enemy’s external defenses, causing them to permeate directly into the body of the enemy. It was apparent that Xue Ying could not damage the scales of Iron Dragon City Master at all!
“Chi chi chi,” every time they clashed, the divine sword would tremble from the rebounding impact against the three unseen layers of energy on the body of Iron Dragon City Master.
‘Just this protective energy of his could heavily injure Late Stage God Emperors. Fortunately, I did not fight head-on against him.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly.
No matter what he did, using his palm or relying on his sword, Xue Ying executed his techniques using the Dao of Void. He forced Iron Dragon City Master to stumble backwards and fly like a sack. Nonetheless, the body of Iron Dragon City Master remained perfectly undamaged. His skin was perfectly fine as well. The internal organs of Iron Dragon City Master were so powerful that it reached a stage Xue Ying could not do any damage to!
Xue Ying felt that he could not ‘injure’ the other party.
But it was Iron Dragon City Master who felt sullen and awful.
His soul suffered from the pull of the immense world. He was constantly resisting against it with most of his strength, leaving behind just some of his heart force for battle. Furthermore, the techniques of this white-robed male before him were exquisite as well: ‘Damn, if only I could unleash 100% of my strength, I can easily break apart those techniques of his! But now, why do I feel that my fleshy body is incredibly heavy? And using any technique is so difficult?’
His body felt as heavy as a mountain. It was too clumsy.
Until now, he had not truly struck Xue Ying once!
‘I am being teased!’
‘Even with the help of the arrays, I am still being played around.’ Iron Dragon City Master felt sullen and startled at the same time. He was astonished how frightening this soul technique was! As for close combat? He did not really place it in his eyes since he could see that despite being a ‘target’ and struck around by the other party, the fundamental energy protecting his fleshy body remained fine.
Iron Dragon City Master was known as the second strongest close combatant in the Divine Realm primarily because of his terrifying fleshy body! As his heart force was affected, his strength became greatly weakened. Nonetheless, his fleshy body remained as strong as ever.
“Iron Dragon City Master is indeed amazing. Admirable. Truly admirable.” Xue Ying chuckled. Suddenly, he retreated. Waving his hand, a black crack formed beside him, “Farewell.”
Xue Ying took a step into the crack before disappearing from the place.
And the enormous world that pulled his soul disappeared after that. Only then did Iron Dragon City Master feel himself regaining his complete peak state. Looking at the merging black crack, he mumbled to himself: “Ultra-long distance teleportation? Such a terrifying soul technique yet he could still teleport through an ultra-long distance?”
Such enemies were too frightening.
By relying on his ultra-long distance teleportation, he could simply descend anywhere. With a soul technique, he could easily engulfed the entire residence. Other than Iron Dragon City Master who could still resist against it, the others within the residence would most likely fall prey to it!
‘Even I have to fork out much of my heart force to resist against it. If, if his soul technique is slightly stronger! I might perhaps fall into oblivion within that illusory realm?’ Iron Dragon City Master could not help but feel a chill down his spine. If his soul could not resist, then the fleshy body that he cultivated to such heaven-defying stages would be entirely useless!
‘The soul is the root.’
‘When did such a terrifying soul expert appear in the Divine Realm? If he improved further, he would be able to sweep across all God Emperors just by relying on his soul technique.’ Iron Dragon City Master felt his heart tremble.
Even until now, the other party’s strength did not seem to be any weaker!
Iron Dragon City Master looked at the damaged structures around him. Those were some of the walls that had been damaged in the battle previously. The City Master waved his hand, causing the Crown Prince of Iron Dragon Hall, ‘Iron Dragon Cloud Mountain’ to appear. The black-robed Iron Dragon Cloud Mountain looked around him. He found that it was in a damaged state. The arrays above were even in an operating state. It was clear that the arrays of the entire Iron Dragon Hall had been activated.
“Father, have you captured him?” Iron Dragon Cloud Mountain immediately asked.
“Captured him?” Iron Dragon City Master looked at him coldly, “Tell me, who is he? How did you meet him? Tell me everything right from the start.”
Iron Dragon Cloud Mountain saw the cold look on his father. He could not help but feel a shiver down his spine. Iron Dragon Cloud Mountain obediently began describing: “It’s like that. Yesterday, that God Emperor who called himself Azure Cloud came to find me. He wished to purchase that Void Lineage Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpse…” Iron Dragon Cloud Mountain did not dare to hide anything. He told his father every single thing that happened.
“… Since I am at the Iron Dragon Hall, I dare to fight even a Grand Perfection God Emperor. Furthermore, Father is around too. He had foolishly given his treasures to me. Hence, it is natural that I became greedy…”
“And this is what happened!”
Iron Dragon Cloud Mountain finished his explanation.
Iron Dragon City Master was speechless. The other party took the initiative to come and trade with him, yet his son greed over the treasures of the other party.
“The foolish one is you!” Iron Dragon City Master was so angry that he did not say anything. He could see that the temper of this mysterious expert ‘God Emperor Azure Cloud’ is good. He was not a selfish or ruthless kind of person. Otherwise, he would have simply killed his son without suggesting a trade before stealing the treasure away.
“It’s I who is foolish. But Father, where is he?” The Crown Prince continued asking the question.
“Your father, I have almost been reaped in his hands.” Iron Dragon City Master coldly said, “Even after exerting my full strength, I am still on the disadvantaged end!”
“On the disadvantaged end?” The Crown Prince was stunned.
“He then executed an ultra-long distance teleportation technique before leaving.” Iron Dragon City Master said coldly, “With such frightening strength and frightening soul technique, he even knows how to teleport through an ultra-long distance… you actually provoked such an expert? I truly admire you.”
“Father, I am wrong! I am wrong!” The Crown Prince answered. He felt helpless. Originally, he thought he had everything under his control. Who would have guessed such a terrifying expert would appear.
“Also, remember this! You must never leak this matter out.” Iron Dragon City Master coldly ordered, “You are forbidden to leak out anything related to this God Emperor Azure Cloud.”
The Crown Prince immediately added, “Rest assured, Father. I’ll absolutely not leak anything out. This time, my Iron Dragon Hall have suffered huge losses. All the treasures I have with me are taken away! How can I leak out such precious information? Hmph hmph, I believe not too long from now, there will similarly be other experts who would fall in the hands of this God Emperor Azure Cloud.”
Iron Dragon City Master glanced at him: “Not just your treasures, for the sake of your little life, I was forced to fork out treasures worth 100,000 Chaotic Origin Crystal Jades.”
“Ah.” The Crown Prince was stunned.
That was an incredible loss!
He felt heart ached when he woke up to his treasures missing. Who would have thought that the other party would ruthlessly slaughter the wealth of his father too.
“If I had known about this, wouldn’t it be better if I obediently traded with him?” The Crown Prince felt a pang of regret.
“It is lucky that you could live on. If you were to encounter those that were more ruthless, they would have killed you.” Iron Dragon City Master coldly said.
Crown Prince nodded.
That’s right. The other party could suppress even his father. Naturally, they would not be afraid of their Iron Dragon City.
Even though this battle represented an exchange between two peak experts in the Divine Realm, Iron Dragon City Master had completely kept it a secret! Actually, he had already controlled the arrays to isolate everything when they fought. They prevented other people within the residence from finding out about this battle. Since the enemy could rapidly capture his son, Iron Dragon City Master understood how frightening such an enemy was.
Not all battles at this level were appropriate to be publicized, especially when God Emperor Azure Cloud could possibly be ‘disguising his identity’ too.
Xue Ying returned back to the High Mountain City.
This battle also gave Xue Ying a newfound realization. Even though he had a Middle Stage God Emperor Dao of Void strength that enabled him to fight with Late Stage God Emperors, his offensive strength was comparatively too weak. He only relied on the profoundness of his techniques to fight with Late Stage God Emperors. If he encountered ‘Grand Perfection God Emperors’, even if the other party was greatly weakened, Xue Ying could not harm them even as they stood there.
Of course, his Third Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm Technique was heaven-defying too! It even weakened the strength of someone so powerful like Iron Dragon City Master––reaching a level that Xue Ying could easily make fun of the other party.
‘If my Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm was to improve by another level! Then even with the soul and willpower of a Grand Perfection God Emperor, they would not be able to resist against it.’ Xue Ying thought, ‘I should be able to sweep across everyone below the level of a Chaotic Origin Lifeform!’
He truly looked forward to the day he reached the final realm in his Mirage and Illusory Realm!
‘I should continue deepening my understanding of the Dao of Void too.’
Xue Ying planned on moving ahead on both Daos.
This time, he had acquired the corpse of a Void Lineage Chaotic Origin Lifeform, giving Xue Ying lots of hope and expectations for the days ahead.
Even though both ‘Iron Dragon City Master’, ‘Cloud Phoenix City Master’ and ‘Fire Phoenix God Emperor’, these three Grand Perfection God Emperors knew of the emergence of a powerful soul expert in the Divine Realm and were looking forward to the day this mysterious expert acted again, they became sullen after realizing that nothing of such sort happened. This mysterious expert seemed to have disappeared from the world. Xue Ying, was indeed someone who held no interest in the competition of this world. Currently, he was madly engrossed in his research of that Void Lineage Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpse.
Time passed quickly. The world continued changing along. It had been 300 trillion years. Another new generation had risen in this world again. Of course, the Grand Perfection God Emperors that stood at the peak of remained the same.
