Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1351: The Three City Masters
“They are here.” The two experts responsible for guarding the place on the city wall were jolted awake as they saw a team of cultivators appear from the void.
“It is the team containing Daoist Hidden Horizon and Monarch Flying Snow.”
The two experts felt their hearts racing.
Currently, the entire Scarlet Cloud City was restless. The strongest––the three City Masters, and even the weaker ones––those cultivators with a combat strength of Late Stage God Emperors had been mentioning a name for the past half a day––’Monarch Flying Snow’.
Monarch Flying Snow’s technique was something that had never been heard before in the history of the entire ‘Sacred World’! With just himself, he was able to significantly weaken 1,200 Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeforms, forcing them down into the level of a ‘Late Stage God Emperor’! This technique was simply unfathomable.
Before Monarch Flying Snow, the strongest advantage the Chaotic Origin Lifeforms had––’their great numbers’––had been wiped!
“Monarch Flying Snow, let us head to the Scarlet Cloud Hall.”
“Right now, I believe many cultivators are seeking to meet Monarch. It is better for us to head to the Scarlet Cloud Hall first and distribute those Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses!”
The team continued advancing at high speed towards the walls of the Scarlet Cloud City.
The cultivators were escorting Xue Ying, the unspoken leader of the team! Even Daoist Hidden Horizon and Xie Fan were lamenting in their hearts… They felt that acquiring ‘food’ was way easier when they hunted with Xue Ying.
“Wait one moment.”
Xue Ying swept his gaze across. Seeing the two experts that were responsible for guarding the post, he immediately shouted. He then went forward and landed on that wall.
As he descended, the group of cultivators followed suit.
“Monarch Flying Snow.” The two sentries came forward and greeted him. They appeared much more polite and humble.
“Brother Jun Qian, Brother Fu Shan, why are you treating me like a stranger? You can simply call me Brother Flying Snow.” Xue Ying chuckled, “In the past when I first came to Scarlet Cloud City, I had been surrounded by a large group of Shadow Reapers. It is because of the two of you that alerted God Eagle Snake and his team to save me.”
These two experts were none other than Jun Qian and Fu Shan.
Jun Qian and Fu Shan had completely changed their attitude towards Xue Ying. Seeing that Xue Ying was being polite, they immediately grinned. Both of them became much more prideful after that because they were clear that Xue Ying’s current status would likely not be any weaker than the three City Masters!
“With the strength of Brother Flying Snow, I believe you can easily survive against that group of Shadow Reapers yourself.” Fu Shan chuckled.
Jun Qian added with a grin: “We have also heard the news. Brother Flying Snow has weakened over 1,200 Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeforms with your technique. When we first heard of it, we were simply stunned.”
Xue Ying laughed.
Every cultivator in the team owned a communication treasure. Ultimately, Xue Ying’s executed technique was simply too terrifying! Hence, it was normal that the cultivators in the team would tell everyone else. And soon, it spread across throughout the Scarlet Cloud City.
“I’ll make a move first. We still have to pay the Scarlet Cloud Hall a visit.” Xue Ying said, “When the two of you are done with your sentry duty, both of you should visit me at my cavern-dwelling.”
Both Jun Qian and Fu Shan agreed.
The reason why they chose to take on the role as ‘sentries’, a mundane and boring job in exchange for food is because hunting for food outside the city is too dangerous to them! If they could get closer to Xue Ying, the two of them would have an easier time should they join Xue Ying’s team on a hunt. Now, everyone knew how frightening the harvest would be in the team that ‘Monarch Flying Snow’ joined! Even if they were distributed just a slight bit of the total harvest, they would still earn a startling amount.
“Go.” Xue Ying immediately flew through the sky.
The other cultivators followed behind. They flew directly towards the Scarlet Cloud Hall. All of them even revealed looks of expectation.
It was the ‘allocation of food at the Scarlet Cloud Hall’ that they most looked forward to during each hunt! And this time, they were exceptionally looking forward to the distribution since they had hunted down a total of 28 Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.
Following as Xue Ying’s team returned, the cultivators in the entire Scarlet Cloud City began receiving the news.
Within the cavern-dwelling of Vice-City Master ‘Wu Xiao’, in his underground palace.
A humanoid lifeform that was 3,000 meters tall lay down within the palace apparently deep in sleep. It was entirely silver-white in color and was currently emitting a faint white light. Every single pore on its skin was a deep void passage with countless machineries hovering around them. There were also many machines flying into his body constantly.
A single hair of his, magnified by a trillion times, comprised of a huge cosmos in reality. The cosmos was even filled with many battleships and mechas battling within the cosmos.
Suddenly, he stopped breathing. Those mechas that were originally hovering around his body returned back into it.
He sat up before stroking his head.
“He is back?” Wu Xiao lightly muttered.
In the entire Scarlet Cloud City, even the entire Sacred World, Wu Xiao had the biggest background.
His old ancestor… was one of the few strongest and most terrifying Chaotic Origin Lifeforms that had jumped out of the cage, an Overlord! And he, Wu Xiao, was also the strongest descendent left behind by his ancestor, and also the one closest to ‘jumping out of the cage to become a Chaotic Origin’!
It was similarly hard to become a Chaotic Origin even for a descendent with the bloodline of an Overlord.
With a terrifying bloodline and discipline to train, Wu Xiao was naturally powerful! If one said that Xie Fan had the ‘heaviest’ body within Scarlet Cloud City, then Wu Xiao had the strongest body and strength in the entire Scarlet Cloud City! He was even good at scouting techniques. Just by relying on his terrifying bloodline, he was able to fight with the other two City Masters, ‘Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’ and ‘Weather Leaf’.
“Smaller, smaller, smaller.” Wu Xiao lightly muttered.
His body began shrinking rapidly. It seemed like every part of his body was being forced down. Various ripples were even generated on the surface of his skin. Wu Xiao’s body was just like a huge and terrifying celestial body! To him, shrinking his body would incite many changes within it.
‘Ai, other cultivators in this Scarlet Cloud City could easily maintain an ordinary height, yet I have to suppress mine.’ Wu Xiao felt helpless. His bloodline was unique. Cultivating to his current realm, his body had also become this huge. His old ancestor had an incredibly huge body too. It was just slightly smaller than an ‘Origin World’. Even though he could not compare to his old ancestor, he still had a huge figure.
In this Sacred World, his height was suppressed to 3,000 meters. It was his ordinary height. If he suppressed it further, it would result in various changes within his body.
But he had no choice.
The cavern-dwellings within Scarlet Cloud City were standardized. Many halls were only a thousand meters tall. If he did not shrink his body further, he would not be able to enter any of those halls! Furthermore, he could not really converse with other cultivators while he was 3,000 meters tall right?
‘I’ve never heard of a cultivator like that Monarch Flying Snow who has such terrifying technique. I must go experience it personally.’ Wu Xiao immediately left his underground palace.
And at another location filled with fragrance, there was a handsome bald young man seated on a grassfield. This bald young man had a warm and gentle smile. His eyes seemed filled with great benevolence.
He was none other than the ‘Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’.
Of the three strongest experts in Scarlet Cloud City, Wu Xiao had the greatest background! And Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor was a cultivator that unquestionably grew up step by step from a weak little mortal world. He experienced countless difficulties and setbacks. He had reached an unfathomable level on this Dao of ‘Witchcraft’. One had to know that many other cultivation paths were usually weaker than ‘Dao Cultivators’!
Dao Cultivators grasped the essence of laws. They had to comprehend the way to attain a Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body. Hence, it was nothing unusual for Dao Cultivators to fight against higher-levelled cultivators of other paths.
Wu Xiao was an exceptional case.
And ‘Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’s witchcraft actually gave him sufficient strength to defeat ordinary ‘Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform’ Dao Cultivators! Dao Cultivators that could defeat other cultivators of an entire level higher, could not actually triumph over Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor.
Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’s strength… was comparable to Weather Leaf’s. Weather Leaf was a terrifying Dao Cultivator that had cultivated two Dao paths to the Half-Chaotic Origin Level! Nonetheless, Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor could still compete with Weather Leaf to a standstill. One could see how outstanding , Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor was for him to climb to his level step by step starting as a mortal.
His outstanding talent had even attracted the attention of several Chaotic Origin Experts!
‘During my previous journey to the ‘Chaotic Origin Chaos Corridor’, I was at least unparalleled in the corridor I went. In the end, I came to this legendary World of Survival! Wu Xiao could be said to have the help of a Chaotic Origin Lifeform. But Weather Leaf has climbed up step by step from mortality just like me. He isn’t any weaker than me as well.’ That warm eyes of Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor were filled with expectations, ‘And now, this Monarch Flying Snow has appeared. He at least far transcends my ability to deal with a large group of Chaotic Origin Experts. What exactly is that technique of his? Is it some sort of domain? Or a soul technique?’
At this moment, Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor was filled with curiosity towards Xue Ying.
He stood up and left his underground palace too.
‘Hearsay he is a Dao Cultivator too?’ In the entire Sacred World, the only cultivator who had grasped two Daos at the Half-Chaotic Origin Level, ‘Weather Leaf’, simply sent a message using his communication treasure to Xue Ying.
