Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1385: Could not Hold on any Longer!
‘Reaching the realm of a Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform with a final realm in the Dao of Soul, I would not encounter any bottlenecks in my cultivation towards Overlord. This is an absolute path.’ Xue Ying felt puzzled inwardly, ‘Dao Cultivators at the Half-Chaotic Origin Level are quite commonly seen. There are several dozens of them just within Cultivation Sacred World itself. There are definitely many more of them across the endless Chaotic Origin Dimension. But why have I never heard of a cultivator becoming an Overlord simply after reaching the final realm in his Dao of Soul?’
He had never heard of this before!
So that meant…
Before him, there should not be any cultivator who succeeded!
In the vast endless Chaotic Origin Dimension, he could very well be the only one to reach final realm in the Dao of Soul!
‘So, the reason why the Sea of Abyss Master could not understand what happened when I borrowed the strength of the World Energy to fight with him, is because he hasn’t heard of this before.’ Xue Ying was becoming more and more confident that this was the reason.
At Cultivation Sacred World.
The Sea of Abyss Master who was completely permeated with shackles, roared. Those shackles were pulled taut, making it hard for the Sea of Abyss Master to move or do anything at all. His 16 tentacles waved in the world, letting out clanging sounds as they flew at Xue Ying.
“Peng peng peng~”
Both parties fought, creating blasting sounds along the way.
Of the two 4,000 kilometers giant fighting, the Sea of Abyss Master had countless inscriptions carved on his body. Even his skin membrane layer contained endless profound mysteries. During battle, some of the energy moving on the surface of his body shows the usage of laws at the Chaotic Origin Level. Compared to him, Xue Ying was clearly much cruder! At this moment, the aura Xue Ying gave off had not even reached the Chaotic Origin Level! His combat techniques were very crude too as they were still at the Half-Chaotic Origin Level.
Fortunately, Xue Ying had part of the Origin Source Energy boosting his strength. The World Energy in the entire Cultivation Sacred World was also for him to control. In addition to his overwhelming advantage in his speed, that was how he could still fight.
Even so… out of eight to ten moves, Xue Ying would not be able to block one of them.
A tentacle pierced over like a shadow.
Xue Ying tried defending himself with his spear, yet when the tentacle came, it produced a mysterious ripple which caused its speed to seem fast and slow at the same time. Time and space had been affected. Xue Ying actually parried against nothing with his spear.
“Pu.” That tentacle pierced through the chest of Xue Ying. It was fortunate that Xue Ying was covered everywhere with a thick layer of World Energy. When the tentacle barely pierced through the layer of World Energy, it pierced into his chest. Nonetheless, the Origin Source Energy easily suppressed the wound around the chest from worsening.
Xue Ying rapidly retreated. His injuries recovered as he did.
‘My speed is much faster than his. His techniques and moves are so slow yet I still could not defend against him?’ Xue Ying had a sullen feeling as if he was a fool. Those techniques which he was proud of had seemed to be a sideshow against the profound techniques of the enemy! It was also due to his overwhelming advantage in speed that gave him a chance to fight back.
“Sou sou sou…”
Xue Ying was trying to play to his strength. He maximized his advantage in speed. The Sea of Abyss Master tried defending against Xue Ying. But the other party’s speed was too slow. The ‘black-robed tall and thin male’ was even controlling those array shackles with varying force, pulling it taut at times and letting it loose, frustrating the Sea of Abyss Master. This enormous inferiority in speed had made him suffer from the occasional strikes.
“Pu.” The spear pierced into the neck of the Sea of Abyss Master.
Every single part of his body was covered with a thick skin membrane layer. As the skin membrane layer was pierced, it immediately emitted a vibrant water light as if there was a millstone shaving away the force from Xue Ying’s spear! This technique which incorporated the World Energy had simply been blocked by the ‘surface skin membrane layer’. Xue Ying could not even break through the skin at all.
‘Even though these sealing arrays are suppressing his strength, his fleshy body is still that powerful.’ Xue Ying understood in his heart that the current sealing arrays could not injure the Sea of Abyss Master at all! It was only suppressing the other party. And the fleshy body of the Sea of Abyss Master had completely recovered. Even if he stood there allowing Xue Ying to strike him, Xue Ying would still fail to break through his skin.
This was the gap between one with the combat strength of a High-Graded Chaotic Origin Lifeform and one with the combat strength of a World Realm Chaotic Origin Lifeform.
During the process of the mad fighting, as he directly defended against an attack sent by eight tentacles, suddenly, with a ‘peng’, the spear in Xue Ying’s hand exploded into powder. As a result, Xue Ying was forced to retreat and pull a distance between them.
“You don’t even have a good weapon.” The Sea of Abyss Master sneered.
Xue Ying had no choice.
The spear in his hand had been condensed from some of the Origin Source Energy in this Cultivation Sacred World before covering it on the outside with a layer of World Energy! Its toughness was limited. It was due to the slightly lower combat strength exhibited by the Sea of Abyss Master that let the spear survive until now.
Xue Ying suddenly felt something. He revealed a joyous look.
At this moment, the avatar back at his hometown Origin World had easily relied on the Mirage and Illusory Realm to influence the will of the Origin World. It had also began refining the Origin Source of the World.
‘I am about to break through.’ With a thought, Xue Ying disappeared from the location. This fleshy body had dissipated back into World Energy and returned back to the world. His soul, instead, went back to the Origin Source of this Cultivation Sacred World.
“He escaped after his weapon shattered?”
The Sea of Abyss Master was stunned. This cultivator called Monarch Flying Snow had suddenly disappeared?
‘How did he escape from my law domain?’ Even until now, the Sea of Abyss Master could still not understand, ‘According to the previous exchange, his realm is still at the Half-Chaotic Origin Level and is very weak. His techniques are very crude too… if not for his overwhelming speed and the protection from the concentrated World Energy around, I’d have eliminated him.’
Suddenly, the expression of the Sea of Abyss Master changed as he turned towards one direction.
The entire Cultivation Sacred World trembled. The world shook. The World Energy was also rapidly converging onto one point as a terrifying aura started emerging.
‘Chaotic Origin Expert?’ The Sea of Abyss Master paled.
‘No.’ The Sea of Abyss Master widened his eyes in disbelief, ‘This is a World Realm Chaotic Origin Expert!’
Under normal circumstances, it would take a very long time for a weak avatar belonging to a Chaotic Origin Expert to absorb the surrounding Chaotic Origin Energy before it could become a Prime Avatar.
Only during the advancement in life would it rapidly devour all energy!
Just like how Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor broke through previously to become a High-Graded Chaotic Origin Lifeform.
Or like how the Sea of Abyss Master broke through to become a World Realm Chaotic Origin Lifeform. Even under the suppression from the world, he could still devour all energy.
This breakthrough in the level of life… absorbed energy at an exaggerated pace. He could advance in a very short period!
‘It seems that there is a World Realm Chaotic Origin Expert emerging over there.’ The Sea of Abyss Master was incredibly certain. The consumption of the surging World Energy over there was so great that it forced the Origin Source of the Cultivation Sacred World to devour Chaotic Origin Energy wildly from the surrounding Chaotic Origin Dimension.
Xue Ying stood in the vast wilderness. He controlled the World Energy to isolate his surroundings so as to prevent anyone else from spying on him.
‘Prime Avatar.’ Xue Ying revealed a grin.
This Prime Avatar contained 90% of his current strength.
And all his other avatars scattered in his hometown Origin World and Realm Heart Great Land occupied just 10% of his energy. He had no choice. Even though his avatars were scattered around the place, in reality, they had the same consciousness and belonged to one single entity! Hence, the amount of energy he could temporarily contain had reached a pinnacle.
‘If I have sufficient time, I can properly study the profound mysteries inherent in my body and my soul.’ Xue Ying shook his head with a smile, ‘But there is no need for that either. Currently, I should focus more on fusing my ‘Dao of Void’ and ‘Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm’. I only need four hours before I’d succeed in fusing them, allowing me to grasp ‘Dao’ at the Chaotic Origin Level.’
‘But right now, my current strength is sufficient to deal with the Sea of Abyss Master.’ Xue Ying felt confident.
No matter what, the Sea of Abyss Master was merely a new World Realm Chaotic Origin Lifeform.
And he was one as well!
But his strength was not being suppressed or restricted at all.
With a teleport, Xue Ying proceeded to where the Sea of Abyss Master was.
When Xue Ying appeared again right before the Sea of Abyss Master, the Sea of Abyss Master fell into a daze.
Don’t say him, even the Hall Spirit, that ‘black-robed tall and thin male’, and many other Chaotic Origin Experts that were paying attention to this place, were all shocked.
“World Realm Chaotic Origin Expert!”
“He broke through?”
“Refining the Origin Source of a World requires him to gradually influence the will of the populace. This is a very time-consuming matter. How could he achieve it so quickly?”
Even though there were some Chaotic Origin Experts scattered across some mysterious places in the Chaotic Origin Dimension, they were still relatively happy that a new World Realm Chaotic Origin Expert had emerged! Just that Xue Ying’s breakthrough was too fast!
“You have truly astonished me.” The Sea of Abyss Master started at Xue Ying. He became solemn, “Why, are you planning to kill me now?”
“Naturally I am planning to kill you.”
Xue Ying nodded, “Remember not to conceal any techniques you have from now on.”
“Just based on you, a new World Realm Chaotic Origin Expert, and you think you can kill me?” The Sea of Abyss Master roared, “My bloodline is noble. Even though these sealing arrays have reduced my strength, it doesn’t alter the fact that my body is strong. You can’t kill me.”
“Oh, let us try it.” Xue Ying abruptly moved.
Xue Ying was too lazy to use the World Energy any longer. Because the Origin Source of this Cultivation Sacred World was simply too weak. By using the World Energy, he could barely reach the peak of a High-Graded Chaotic Origin Lifeform. To the current Xue Ying, his strength would only increase by about 10% and that was unneeded.
At this moment, as he moved, one could see many figures appearing around the Sea of Abyss Master.
The Sea of Abyss Master became even more grave. He knew that every single avatar was a real body! This technique contained profound mysteries with a touch of Dao of Void at the Chaotic Origin Level. Furthermore, after reaching this level, his body would contain many mystical abilities. He could descend down in different spaces at the same time. And since the Sea of Abyss Master was suppressed, he could not dodge it at all.
“Pu.” A palm pierced over.
The palm was like a blade. It was imbued with the sharpness from a revolving void.
That palm forced through the ‘skin membrane layer’ on the chest of the Sea of Abyss Master. His skin was covered in water light. Layers and layers of them shaved off the incoming force by Xue Ying. Xue Ying also frowned slightly as his palm blade finally pierced through the skin membrane layer! And then through the actual skin. His skin was tough too. It felt thick and heavy. Only after it cut through the skin, reaching the flesh layer did Xue Ying’s palm stop.
‘What a terrifying fleshy body.’ Xue Ying was inwardly startled, ‘It’s strength is approximately five times that of mine.’
Innate Chaotic Origin Lifeforms were nurtured naturally by the Chaotic Origin Dimension. They were famous for having overbearing bodies.
Cultivators that did not own any Chaotic Origin Bloodlines, even if they became a World Realm Chaotic Origin Expert! Their fleshy body would still be one level weaker. In addition to the noble bloodline that the Sea of Abyss Master had, his fleshy body was considered extremely strong even among new World Realm Chaotic Origin Lifeforms. It was at least way stronger than Xue Ying’s!
Even though cultivators that were birthed from Origin World had no Chaotic Origin Bloodlines, they had an enormous advantage! World Realm Chaotic Origin Experts that emerged from this background would have an Origin World as their base! In their own Origin World, they could fight against even Overlords! Their survivability was way higher than those World Realm Innate Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.
“You injured me?” The Sea of Abyss Master frowned slightly when he saw the wound and blood trickling down from his chest.
He immediately contacted his clan member via his bloodline: “Big Brother! I have actually encountered a new World Realm Chaotic Origin Expert in this Prison World! His strength might be ordinary, yet I am being suppressed. If he were to continue attacking me, I’m afraid I can only last for an hour at most!”
“Cheng Hao, my brother, you can be rest assured. After reporting upwards, the Primogenitor knows about everything you have experienced and have determined that you have the potential. He favors you a lot! As a result, he and other Primogenitors have increased the strength of assault, dispatching quite a few World Realm Chaotic Origin Lifeforms over to save you. Those that are closest would not need an hour at all.”
At this moment, the Sea of Abyss Master heaved a sigh of relief. At the same time, he replied: “Big Brother, the Primogenitor really favors me a lot?”
“Haha, by then, I’ll bring you over to meet the Primogenitor.”
The Sea of Abyss Master was in a good mood after finding out that his comrades were about to reach, and those that were dispatched to battle were not new World Realm Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.
‘I shall let you rejoice temporarily. In a while, the outcome is going to change.’ The Sea of Abyss Master looked at Xue Ying before him. As his speed had been reduced, he could still fight with the previous Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body Xue Ying who borrowed the strength of World Energy. But now, facing Xue Ying who was similarly a World Realm Chaotic Origin Lifeform, he was completely utterly being suppressed!
Xue Ying’s body became blurred. He appeared at different locations around the Sea of Abyss Master, left of him, right of him, front and back of him. Xue Ying was continuously bombarding his attacks.
And many wounds appeared on the body of the Sea of Abyss Master, albeit they were shallow.
Xue Ying did not care. In his mind, he had poured all his focus on deducing out how to fuse the ‘Dao of Void’ and ‘Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm’ together. As he did not encounter any bottleneck during fusion, it was proceeding really smoothly. More and more comprehension started pouring in his heart. He did not even have to focus on his body, yet the strength he could execute was gradually becoming stronger.
Xue Ying’s blurred figure appeared behind the Sea of Abyss Master. One fist blasted out by the side waist of the other party.
It exploded with a strange ringing sound. Following that, the point where the fist hit started collapsing. The skin membrane layer, the skin layer, and the flesh layer of the Sea of Abyss Master collapsed as well, causing a grievous wound to form. This wound was much bigger. Part of the flesh had even collapsed and disappeared.
‘What?’ After suffering from this savage strike, the Sea of Abyss Master paled greatly. He was even starting to feel terrified, ‘How could this be? He has just broken through as a World Realm Chaotic Origin Lifeform. Even if he is digging out the potential of his body and is researching out many secret techniques, the rise of his strength should be a slow and gradual process. How can it increase so quickly over this short period?’
He could not understand at all.
But he was genuinely afraid now! Because Xue Ying had many bodies circling around the Sea of Abyss Master and were all punching at him. It caused many areas of his body to collapse, worsening his injury at a rapid pace.
“Big Brother, Big Brother!” The Sea of Abyss Master sent another anxious message, “I can’t hold on for too long! Now, I can only hold on for the time taken to brew a cup of tea.”
“What? Didn’t you say you can survive for an hour? The time taken to brew a cup of tea? That’s too tight! I’ve immediately informed ‘Yan’. He is the closest to you. I’ll ask for him to rush over to your location.”
“Hurry, hurry!” The Sea of Abyss Master impatiently said.
He did not wish to die like this.
After being tortured for so long in the Cultivation Sacred World, he endured everything just so he could become a World Realm Chaotic Origin Lifeform in one fell swoop. He had looked forward to escaping away before growing stronger and having his revenge against those cultivators in the future. If he were to die now? He felt really unwilling to!
Another five breaths of time passed.
“Mn?” Xue Ying’s eyes brightened.
His offensive techniques transformed again.
As he hurled his right arm out, it was like a spear brandishing downwards. Even though it had not touched the Sea of Abyss Master, space started breaking into pieces like a multi-layered cake. The space where the Sea of Abyss Master stood had been cut into more then ten thousand layers. It’s just that the Sea of Abyss Master’s body was too strong. Even though many wounds appeared, his body remained stable.
His right arm swung out at the head of the Sea of Abyss Master~ At that moment, ten thousand layers of space shattered apart as if a chain reaction. Its power was also constantly becoming stronger. The first several thousand layers were still fine, but reaching the bottom few thousand layers, the spatial power became increasingly terrifying. It even shattered the body of the Sea of Abyss Master.
‘What?’ More than half the legs of the Sea of Abyss Master disappeared. His upper body was filled with wounds too. He stared at Xue Ying with horror, ‘This technique is so strong? I might just die in three to five moves! He, he, his strength has reached the Middle Stage World Realm Chaotic Origin Level already?’
Three to five moves.
The gap between their strength was distinct now. With such an offensive power, Xue Ying could indeed be categorised as a Middle Stage World Realm Chaotic Origin.
‘How could his strength increase so rapidly? This is a monster! A monster!’ The Sea of Abyss Master looked at Xue Ying. His eyes were raving with madness. His desire, his hope, and his hatred were all gone!
He understood that he was doomed.
‘I have nothing to say even if I die in the hands of this monster.’ The Sea of Abyss Master had become entirely despondent. He directly transmitted via his soul to his other clan members.
“What happened? I have already informed Yan! Yan is also rushing over at the fastest speed. He said he could reach in the time taken to brew a cup of tea.”
“There is no need to come anymore! I can no longer hold on any further.”
“What! Why can’t you hold on any further?”
“The one that killed me is a new World Realm Chaotic Origin Expert called Monarch Flying Snow! He has recently broke through and is already a Middle Stage World Realm Chaotic Origin Lifeform. His potential is immense. If you could eliminate him, it’s best that you eliminate him early.”
Following that, the Sea of Abyss Master no longer transmitted anything via his soul anymore.
Xue Ying’s arm came down once again. As it slapped downwards, the ten thousand spatial layers above had a chain reaction, blasting out against the Sea of Abyss Master. In the end, the life core that the Sea of Abyss Master had focused on protecting broke, leaving behind just some flesh and blood. Once the life core broke, it meant the Sea of Abyss Master had died! That was also a flaw that one as an Innate Chaotic Origin Lifeform had.
They were born powerful, yet the moment their life core broke, they would fall. Hence, they would usually focus on protecting their life core.
At another location far away.
A towering giant looked ahead in a daze. He could feel that ‘Cheng Hao’ from his clan died!
“Didn’t he say he can hold on for an hour? If not, at least for the time taken to brew a cup of tea? Yet he died? He simply died like that? The Primogenitors have started another assault all for you.” The towering giant murmured to himself, “Monarch Flying Snow? He is a Middle Stage World Realm Chaotic Origin Lifeform shortly after breaking through?”
No matter what.
This towering giant immediately reported whatever happened here to the Primogenitor.
