Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1361: Blockade
Xue Ying could sense that this team was clearly much more formidable than the team Daoist Hidden Horizon once created. It was only after a day was this team finally discovered by a group of Chaotic Origin Lifeforms, welcoming their very first fight after leaving Scarlet Cloud City.
In reality, this battle happened only because Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor and the other cultivators discussed and agreed that ‘taking a detour’ was not appropriate. They would be better off crushing the enemies directly!
This team clashed with a large group of black birds. Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor gave a cold and furious roar. At the same time, the illusion of nine huge serpents appeared behind him. Those nine huge serpents swayed on the spot, with each serpent letting out an entirely different energy from others. Nine kinds of energy soon merged together to form a nine-colored domain that suppressed the entire battlefield.
“Hahaha, this is so fun!” Wu Xiao laughed joyfully. With a sway of his body, he turned himself into a 3,000-meters silver-white giant. He extended his hand towards a Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform bird. That black bird struggled and tried escaping, yet following that, with a palm by Wu Xiao, he sent waves of energy that restricted this black bird, preventing it from escaping at all. In the end, that enormous palm succeeded in grabbing that black bird.
And once he grabbed hold of it!
The center of his palm caved in like a black hole, swallowing this bird into it.
A Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform was actually captured alive in one fell swoop! This strength simply stunned Xue Ying.
Some of the apex experts in Scarlet Cloud City could kill a Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform if they battled one on one! As for the three City Masters, they were way stronger. Of which ‘Wu Xiao’ who had the most frightening fleshy body might have fewer techniques compared to the other two City Masters ‘Weather Leaf’ and ‘Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’, but his techniques were powerful.
It was primarily due to his strong body! Just his fleshy body gave him the capability to stand side by side with the other two existences.
At this moment, he had easily captured a Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform. One could easily determine how strong he was.
“Celestial River.” Monarch Ardent Creek also began executing his techniques. A strange river soon appeared in the surroundings. This river contained layers of void images. If one carefully observed those images, they would see that there were eight void images in total as if they accounted for different spatial dimensions. When those Chaotic Origin Lifeforms entered the region of this river, they would get lost. They could not even find their allies or enemies!
Hence, the cultivators had an easy time defeating the enemies.
There was no need to talk about Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor and Wu Xiao.
The other apex cultivators were excellent in their own ways. Adding up all the Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeforms, there were only about 10 to 20 of them. Each of them could deal with this number, much less when they were currently working together! Furthermore, some of those Grand Perfection God Emperor experts chosen into the team had been because they were sufficiently outstanding in certain aspects. Once they coordinated with each other, the overall effect was miraculous!
It was a complete one-sided slaughter.
“Brother Flying Snow, remember, you must not cast your soul technique on this journey there.” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor transmitted over, “The moment your soul technique is made known to Quiet Icy Mountain Master, he’ll most likely choose to run. I’ll inform you when you should execute the technique.”
“City Master Nine-Headed, please be rest assured.” Xue Ying smiled, “Oh right, I have executed the soul technique before when I went out with Daoist Hidden Horizon. After that, I have used it on multiple occasions too. Would Quiet Icy Mountain Master not have received the news on this?”
“You can feel rest assured about it.”
City Master Nine-Headed confidently transmitted over, “Within the Sacred World, there are many Innate Chaotic Origin Lifeforms, forming many tribes. Different tribes practically do not talk to each other! At least from our observation, it seems those of the same tribe would move together. But different tribes do not really interact at all. Any small hiccups we face on this journey there are really handled by us easily. Hence, that is why I ask for you to conceal your soul technique in the meantime.”
“But remember, the moment we encounter the Chaotic Origin Lifeform tribe under Quiet Icy Mountain Master, the ‘Quiet Destruction Wolves’, you must be vigilant. Because the moment you reveal your strength, it would frighten Quiet Icy Mountain Master, preventing us from finding another opportunity to kill him.”
They advanced onwards.
Their journey there was quite relaxed. With the strength of this team, as long as they were a little careful in not provoking a huge enemy, they would not encounter any danger.
A torrential rain began pouring. Many huge fishes flew up from the surface of the lake and killed in the direction of the cultivators.
Another huge battle ensued.
Xue Ying wielded his spear and somewhat retaliated against the enemies. After all, Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor remained near Xue Ying to protect him! He did not allow Xue Ying to encounter any of the slightest danger at all.
“Monarch Flying Snow?” There was a sudden transmission.
Xue Ying extracted a strand of his consciousness to check the message.
“I am a Vice-City Master ‘Xun Yi’ from Sky Noon City. It is through the Sky Noon Hall Spirit and Scarlet Cloud Hall Spirit that I was able to contact you.”
“City Master Xun Yi?” Xue Ying was startled, “I wonder if there is anything you need me for?”
He was the only Dao of Void Cultivator in the five assembly grounds of Sacred World who had become a Vice-City Master.
“I’ve heard that you are currently moving together with Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor and the others to deal with Quiet Icy Mountain Master?” Xun Yi chuckled.
“City Master Xun Yi’s source of news is spectacular.” Xue Ying replied. The five cities had some interaction with one another. Hence, it was normal for Xun Yi to hear about this matter.
“Don’t blame me for being offensive, but City Master Nine-Headed wants the heart and blood of that Quiet Icy Mountain Master because he wanted to undergo an Ultimate Awakening! He has planned for this several times. That Quiet Icy Mountain Master had long been frightened by it and is constantly on alert. Furthermore, of the three Void Lineage Chaotic Origin Prisoners, Quiet Icy Mountain Master is the strongest of them all.”
“He remains on alert and is strong too. Hence, the possibility of your team killing him is rather low.” City Master Xun Yi transmitted, “Even with Monarch Flying Snow’s heaven-defying soul technique that could easily cause trouble to all those protectors, I can’t see the success rate of this mission past 50%.”
Xue Ying admitted that what Xun Yi said was logical.
Quiet Icy Mountain Master was the hardest of the three Void Lineage Chaotic Origin Prisoners to deal with.
“Monarch Flying Snow, you are a Dao Cultivator, and I also need the corpse for comprehension. I doubt any of the three Void Lineage Chaotic Origin Prisoners would make a difference for you.” City Master Xun Yi transmitted, “Hence, I am inviting you over to pay my Sky Noon City a visit once this matter is over. I’ll organize a team to deal with one of the three Void Lineage Chaotic Origin Prisoners, the ‘Golden River Master’. The Golden River Master is way easier to deal with as compared to the Quiet Icy Mountain Master. The moment we succeed, I only need to comprehend the corpse for one billion years. You can also comprehend it together with me. After one billion years, the entire corpse will belong to you. How about that?”
Xue Ying had yet to grasp a Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body. He still needed much more accumulations.
As for City Master Xun Yi… he had already grasped a Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body and was very powerful. What he needed was an ‘enlightenment’ or an ‘inspiration’. Perhaps, that might allow him to have a breakthrough! If he did not have a breakthrough within a billion year, that Chaotic Origin Prisoner corpse would no longer be useful for him.
“Let us discuss this matter after my mission.” Xue Ying transmitted.
“Also, Monarch Flying Snow, I have to warn you that you are in the most dangerous situation within your team. The moment that Quiet Icy Mountain Master enters a despondent situation, he’ll definitely aim you first! Once he kills you, with his group of protectors guarding him, he can easily flee from the place. He might even counterattack against you all. Hence, you must remember to stay alert. If you were to die under the retaliation of the Quiet Icy Mountain Master, that’ll not be worth the price.”
“Many thanks City Master Xun Yi for your warning.” Xue Ying became more vigilant after that.
It was simply not worth it if he was forced to leave this world by activating the imprint on his wristband.
Because Quiet Icy Mountain Master had gone out for a patrol, his position was also changing.
Xue Ying and the rest had to change their paths many times. They spent a total of 2.5 days before finally arriving at their destination smoothly——one of the returning paths that Quiet Icy Mountain Master would be taking.
“We will currently be blockading one of the returning paths that Quiet Icy Mountain Master will be taking. If he wishes to return to his territory? It is definitely impossible for him to avoid us.” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor swept his gaze across his surroundings, “This is also the moment I have the biggest hope. I hope everyone can lend me your strength.”
“City Master Nine-Headed, since we have agreed, we’ll definitely do our best.”
All of them acknowledged.
Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor nodded: “Alright. Currently, let us advance closer to this Chaotic Origin Prisoner.”
The team once again moved forward.
As they had taken a huge detour, they were already on the path of return for the other party. In addition, when the team traveled at their fastest speed, it was much faster than that could be traveled by Quiet Icy Mountain Master who was constantly being tortured and restricted! They were not worried that the other party could escape from them.
They had always been moving forward carefully.
The distance between both parties was also constantly shrinking.
It’s just that the Chaotic Origin Prisoner ‘Quiet Icy Mountain Master’ had been ambushed multiple times before. He was no longer as careless. The closer it was to him, the more scouts he would employ, and the denser it would be.
“It’s the cultivators.”
Finally, Xue Ying’s team of cultivators were still discovered by a team of Quiet Destruction Wolves.
They had no choice as the scouts were placed too closely!
“We have been revealed.”
“Let us charge forward using the fastest speed.”
Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor and the others did not show any mercy. They immediately dashed forward with all they could.
The Chaotic Origin Prisoner ‘Quiet Icy Mountain Master’ wore a dark gold gown. His hair was also draped over his shoulders. He gave off an extraordinary aura.
It’s just that his limbs were being shackled. All those shackles even extended into the void! Golden inscriptions were constantly lighted up on those shackles, forcing down waves of tortures on every single part of his body.
‘There will definitely be a day. A day when we, Innate Chaotic Origin Lifeforms, inflict back the torture and slavery we encounter by a thousand or 10,000 times more on those Overlords!’ Quiet Icy Mountain Master’s heart was filled with rising hatred. Any High-Graded Chaotic Origin Lifeforms that had been imprisoned on the Sacred World would suffer from bitter hardship. They were even used as ‘grindstones’ for these weak little cultivators.
They were forced to live through these days filled with despair, agony, and humiliation.
Even though he was filled with grievances and anger…
Thinking about those weak little beings cultivating before standing at the highest peak across the entire Chaotic Origin Dimension, turning into a terrifying being like those Overlords… Quiet Icy Mountain Master could not help but feel terrified. Those Overlords were simply too powerful! An Overlord would protect a very large region himself as well as many other Origin Worlds.
‘They will die. These weak beings, those Origin Worlds, all of them should be food for us Innate Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.’ Anger coursed through Quiet Icy Mountain Master.
“King, we discovered a team of cultivators.”
“King, there is a team of cultivators. We discovered ‘Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’ among them.”
“King, we have discovered Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor.”
Many voice transmissions sounded in the heart of Quiet Icy Mountain Master.
Quiet Icy Mountain Master’s expression changed when he heard them.
Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor?
As he had been assaulted several times by ‘Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’, Quiet Icy Mountain Master already treated the other party as a thorn in his eyes. Furthermore, he had already passed down detailed information regarding Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor to his subordinates. The moment they discovered Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor, they were to immediately report it to him.
“He came again?” The eyes of Quiet Icy Mountain Master flashed with murderous light.
