Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 969: Spoils of War
In the primal chaos void, on a particular huge land with various nations and cities. This land was host to a huge number of beings, yet currently, the entire place had turned silent. Not a single sound could be heard.
A thick-white-robed teenager appeared from the distorted void. He was Xue Ying.
‘Everyone on the Lu Ming Great Land is dead?’ Xue Ying appeared in one of the cities. This city was ruined, and not a single lifeform could be found in it.
Xue Ying walked step by step, flashing across the cities, plains, deserts, villages, icefields… he remained calm as he visited these places. The only change was his eyes as they became colder by the second. Even though he had been chasing after the Destruction Devils, and discovered beings from many places being devoured…
This was the first time Xue Ying had encountered such large-scale destruction where the entire ‘Lu Ming Great Land’ was wiped out!
Lu Ming Great Land was incredibly huge. It was much bigger than a cosmos, and was governed by the Primal Chaos giant, ‘Forefather Lu Ming’. Naturally, many beings were willing to stay here.
‘Are the Destruction Devils formed by the supreme law?’ Xue Ying looked up at the vast void, ‘Even if the supreme law destroyed all living beings, bringing them back into the primal chaos, it is fine if they destroyed them. Why the need to give birth to Destruction Devils who are murdering these people so cruelly instead…’
Maybe to the cold and callous supreme law that looked down upon all existences, there was no need for mercy. But Xue Ying was ultimately a cultivator, and seeing such an incident happening had ignited the wrath in his heart.
Even the most chaotic place, the ‘Myriad Ancient Sacred World’ contained many hex cultivators, devour-class cultivators, and ancient cultivators protecting their own territories. It wasn’t an easy task devouring an entire land. Those devils were weaker, and their destructive power was ordinary.
But all the Destruction Devils that entered the world of cultivators were either peak eighth level or ninth level! They were considered overlord existences even amongst Primal Chaos existences, and the threat from them was too significant.
‘I must get rid of all of you.’ The killing intent in Xue Ying’s eyes became heavier.
He continued traveling.
Xue Ying continued his mission to search for more Destruction Devils. Currently, even the extremely desolate places that contained just two cultivators in closed-door cultivation were places that Xue Ying would scour. He would send his illusory realm over these regions.
The primal chaos void was too big, and if Xue Ying searched through the entire void so thoroughly, he would merely be covering the tip of an iceberg despite spending a trillion years. Nevertheless, Xue Ying remained diligent in his search.
‘There are also golden-armored ranked lairs. I must do my best to uncover all of them.’
Two of his incarnations were still searching for the lairs in the Lost World Corridor.
Ever since Xue Ying left the Void Castle, he had discovered two golden-armored ranked lair spaces. Though it was becoming harder to find them from then on.
On a piece of floating fiery-red massive stone within the primal chaos void.
This fiery-red massive stone was a remnant piece left from the destruction of the primitive Ancient Sacred World, and it spanned several thousand kilometers. It was considered notably small in the primal chaos void. Currently, there was a cavern-dwelling on this stone.
Within the cavern-dwelling lived ‘General Mo Gu’ and his five subordinates.
General Mo Gu sat there. He was so excited that he swayed about, “It is truly too delightful. This is awesome!”
“Hahaha, I believe those cultivator higher-ups will become greatly infuriated when they know about this. It’s a pity that the vast primal chaos void is boundless. It is practically impossible for them to find us. I do not believe that they will luck out either.”
“This time, the few of us have devoured some cultivators too. It is rare for life to be so enjoyable.”
“General Mo Gu has regained his calm now.”
The other five subordinates were laughing.
General Mo Gu had devoured that Forefather Lu Ming and 99% of the living beings on the land, leaving behind some for the other five subordinates. Naturally, because there was genuinely too many living beings on this land, even if the five subordinates ate just a minority of them, they still relished in it. ‘General Mo Gu’ had even turned slightly mad from his devour.
“This sort of feeling is too wonderful. I wonder when I can go out and devour again.” General Mo Gu’s eyes were emitting light.
“General Mo Gu, the kings have said that the next time you want to enjoy another huge meal, you must reach the ninth level.” The other five said.
When one walked by the river, his shoes would indubitably become wet!
There were only this few Primal Chaos giants!
If they frequently went out to eat, the Cosmos Gods would likely become more alert, and they would probably fall into the traps of the Cosmos Gods.
It was only because General Mo Gu’s status was unique that he could act against the Primal Chaos cultivators. Ordinary golden-armored ranked Destruction Devils could not do so.
“Ninth level?” General Mo Gu felt helpless, “This is too difficult.”
The golden-armored Destruction Devils.
The weakest of them were at the seventh level, and there were fewer of them at the eighth level. As for the ninth level?
Not just the cultivators or the Destruction Devils, it was genuinely too difficult to reach the ninth level. General Mo Gu felt that even if he had ten or a hundred times more time in his hand, he would not have much chance.
“This is the order given by the kings.”
General Mo Gu could only accept it. The Destruction Devils were originally given birth to battle and kill. The gray-armored ranked Destruction Devils would obey the orders of the blood-armored Destruction Devils. The blood-armored Destruction Devils could not disobey the orders of the golden-armored Destruction Devils. Similar logic, all the Destruction Devils would not dare to disobey the orders of the ‘kings’. This was imbued in their blood and soul.
“Hu…” General Mo Gu opened his mouth.
At that time, a large number of materials flew out.
All sorts of weapons, storage treasures, scriptures had piled up by the side into a small mountain.
“These are items that I can’t digest.” General Mo Gu said, “Hurry up and flip through them to see what are useful especially the cultivator’s scriptures.”
“We’ll do it right now.” The five subordinates said.
To the Destruction Devils, what attracted them most in the cultivator’s world was firstly, slaughter and devouring the cultivators. This originated from their desires. Secondly would be the cultivation scriptures! They wanted to gain experience from the cultivators’ inheritances so that they could improve further. Every golden-armored Destruction Devil sought to transcend beyond the control of their desire and become ‘kings’.
And it was relatively difficult for them to search for these scriptures.
The more precious the scripture, the more heavily guarded it would be located at! For instance, the most precious scriptures would usually be placed in the ‘Great Void Heaven Temple’, ‘Blade Emperor City’ and other holy grounds. Those that were secondary would be kept by Primal Chaos giants. And the weaker Unity experts only keep much weaker scriptures.
Even though the Destruction Devils were strong, they did not dare to casually act against Primal Chaos giants. Thus, it was hard for them to collect these scriptures too. This time, they killed ‘Forefather Lu Ming’, and naturally, they emphasized greatly on the scriptures collected by him.
“Xiu xiu xiu…”
Many materials were separated into their categories.
General Mo Gu and his five subordinates were researching through these materials, extracting the items located inside the storage treasures, causing more items to appear in this courtyard.
“Good good good, this is an ancient cultivation inheritance scripture and is also flame-related. It is most appropriate for me.” A golden-armored Destruction Devil hugged on to a piece of scripture and began perusing through it. He was reading through it to the extent that his eyebrows were dancing. Even though he could not cultivate in it, there were many explanations and guidance provided within and would be helpful to them.
Many scriptures were extracted out by them.
The majority of them were relatively ordinary scriptures, though the golden-armored Destruction Devils relied on their talent in the past to cultivate. When would they ever have such clear explanations on the cultivation like the scripture did?
Some of the weapons and materials were directly thrown aside by them. They did not care about these items.
“Mn?” General Mo Gu held onto eight scriptures in total. Suddenly, his eyes flashed. He turned to the side. By the lowermost boundary of the pile of items, he had just thrown an article over.
“Something seems wrong.” General Mo Gu walked over. He extended his hand, grabbing over an empty void.
It seemed like he had grabbed something.
“What happened?” The other five looked at General Mo Gu.
“So strange.” General Mo Gu was shocked and puzzled. He stared at his hands, “I can’t see it, or sense it. But it existed currently in my hand as I am grabbing it! Previously when I threw the items over, one of the knocking sounds made me suspicious… and that was how I discovered it.”
They might not care about these items…
But they were ultimately golden-armored Destruction Devils and had an extremely acute sense of their surroundings. The knocking sound between items had given enough clue to General Mo Gu about this thing that could not be perceived with the naked eyes.
“I can’t see or sense it. Yet I can touch it.” General Mo Gu caressed this item, “It seems to be a plate.”
“Let me see.” The other five subordinates were curious too.
