Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 985: This Blade called ‘Sacred Master’
It was too easy for him to make use of Sacred Master because all Cosmos Gods coveted this inheritance of theirs. And the strongest expert in the primal chaos void, ‘Sacred Master’, was the most greedy of them all. He once tried all kinds of ways. That time, he would either threaten or entice and even personally killed Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master before.
Nonetheless, it’s a pity for Sacred Master since those who could obtain the core inheritance of this lineage would have to first train the ‘avatar technique’. Hence, it was near impossible for Sacred Master to obtain their true core inheritance.
Even Sacred Master who was powerful did not specialize in everything. He could not even unravel the techniques left behind by Monarch Nine Cloud.
‘Sacred Master. He has always desired to acquire our lineage. If he knows that Dong Bo Xue Ying has deduced part of the inheritance…’ Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master coldly laughed, ‘He would likely act.’
It’s just that because he had been killed by the Sacred Master before, that was why he wasn’t too willing to rile up the other party.
But this time, he no longer cared. He had to borrow this ‘blade’ known as Sacred Master.
In the dark palace hall.
The calm lake water gradually coagulated and turned into a watery figure. There was silver light revolving about its surface. He was none other than ‘Master Jia Ming’ who had an extremely high status within the Ancient Sacred Religion. Master Jia Ming was someone at the ninth level strength and specialized in searching for traces. Furthermore, he could prophesize the future, earning the great favorability of Sacred Master, and for him to be entrusted with great responsibility.
“Master Jia Ming.” A black-robed Primal Chaos expert greeted him politely from within the palace hall, “There is news from the Heaven Green World.”
“Oh? What is it?” Master Jia Ming’s watery incarnation asked.
“We’ve gotten information regarding part of their lineage’s core inheritance.” This Primal Chaos expert said.
Master Jia Ming was astonished.
The Sacred Master did not desire many things. Other than the most essential goal of ‘grasping the supreme law’, the importance regarding the inheritance of Myriad Realm Tavern Master and Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master’s lineage was ranked in the top three. Sacred Master had personally acted many times before. He even disguised his identity and concealed his aura in an attempt to acquire the inheritance. One could see how important this task was to him.
It’s a pity that the core inheritance of that lineage was tightly secured and he could not obtain it! Sacred Master could only order his subordinates to find some cultivators who did not have any soul imprints yet would believe fervently in Sacred Master to become spies.
Of which there were some that joined the sect under Myriad Realm Tavern Master and Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master.
There were even servants and female attendants that the Ancient Sacred Religion had infiltrated in.
“Our spy has found out a critical piece of news. Part of their lineage’s core inheritance has been grasped by Dong Bo Xue Ying of the Great Void Heaven Temple.” The black-robed Primal Chaos expert respectfully reported.
“How did he found out? Tell me in detail.”
“Yes. That time…”
Master Jia Ming was silently listening.
His true body then began scouring through the past according to this piece of information. He was able to prophesize the future, and thus could naturally view the past. The past had already happened, and it was relatively easy for him to inquire through it. That was also the reason why Master Jia Ming was responsible for this affair.
While he listened, he was investigating the matter as well. Master Jia Ming began to have some deductions in his heart.
Just a moment later.
The true body of Master Jia Ming arrived right before ‘Sacred Master’.
Within the most dazzling palace of Ancient Sacred world.
On a crystalline black stone bed, Sacred Master was currently seated cross-legged on top of it. He was dressed in a black cotton clothing and had a calm and warm expression on his face. Judging by his demeanor of sitting there, others would get the feeling that he was akin to an eternal existence, someone who would live through the apocalypse of the primal chaos void. Nothing could threaten him at all, including the supreme law that was so high above… Because his current existence had given off a flavor of the supreme law already.
A figure came in from outside. It was a white-robed male. He walked in barefooted, and the servants within the palace hall did not stop him at all.
“Sacred Master.” The eyes of the white-robed male were filled with wisdom; those eyes felt like they could see through everything. He respectfully bowed.
The Sacred Master opened his eyes and looked at this white-robed male.
Even if he could see part of the future, the white-robed barefooted ‘Master Jia Ming’ was still very respectful when facing Sacred Master because the more he could see the future, the more he perceived how powerful Sacred Master was. Basing on all timelines he could observe, Sacred Master would remain as a powerful existence that stood high above everyone else. Furthermore, the moment he tried observing ‘Sacred Master’ in the future, he would suffer from a slight backlash that prevented him from being able to prophesize the future of the other party.
He understood that Sacred Master was so powerful that he had faintly surpassed the limits of what the supreme law could control. The future Sacred Master was someone even he could not observe with his great talent.
Furthermore, even if he could prophesize the future, existences like the Sacred Master could alter it easily.
“I’ve gotten a piece of news.” The white-robed barefooted male, Master Jia Ming said with a warm voice, “It was transmitted over by a hidden disciple under Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master regarding that Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master. Apparently, he has been in an unpleasant mood due to Dong Bo Xue Ying. He even mentioned about ‘the other party stealing his technique’… I’ve investigated the past and found out that Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master was thinking of ways to deal against Dong Bo Xue Ying. I even suspect that Myriad Realm Tavern Master had once acted to assassinate Dong Bo Xue Ying, though I could not look through the scenes of the battle which he fought.”
“According to my investigation, it can be deduced that the part about Dong Bo Xue Ying grasping part of their core inheritance should be true, and Myriad Realm Tavern Master has both attempted to kill Dong Bo Xue Ying with Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master one after another.” Master Jia Ming said, “Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master has even revealed the information, which I suspect he is deliberately doing so as to lead us into killing that Dong Bo Xue Ying.”
“I also viewed the scene and understood from the conversation he had with Dong Bo Xue Ying–he has already grasped the Destructive Realm Teleportation technique… Thus, Ancestor Sorcerer and World Ancestor would not waste any Origin World Rocks to invite Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master. This could be the reason why he sought to use us to kill Dong Bo Xue Ying.”
Master Jia Ming calmly stated his deduction.
And Sacred Master was listening from above.
Deliberately spreading the information?
It did not matter if the other party was deliberately spreading the information at all. To Sacred Master, what was important would be if Xue Ying had really gotten part of the core inheritance.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying?” Sacred Master lightly uttered.
The first time.
This was the first time that he truly paid attention to Xue Ying. Even though he had once intelligence on the cultivators, and had cast them to the back of his mind, other than ‘Black Emperor’ and ‘Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master’ whom he slightly paid more importance to amongst those at the Primal Chaos realm, he did not care about the others. Now, he was paying attention to Xue Ying.
The eyes of the Sacred Master were watching calmly.
The rise and fall of shadow could be seen faintly shuttling through his eyes. In terms of searching for traces, Master Jia Ming might be formidable, but he was far inferior as compared to Sacred Master! Even Myriad Realm Tavern Master’s battle could be easily scoured by Sacred Master.
Only the conversation happening between Myriad Realm Tavern Master, Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master, and their teacher was completely disordered, preventing Sacred Master from viewing it.
“That old man has even entered this place?” The edge of the mouth of Sacred Master moved upwards.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying, has he deduced part of their core inheritance, or has he gotten it from Monarch Nine Cloud?” Sacred Master could determine it very quickly.
No matter what the outcome was.
He felt pleased.
Because Monarch Nine Cloud also had an important secret treasure which he coveted, the ‘Third Fire Prison Realm Cauldron’. That foolish Monarch Nine Cloud, even when he died, he still could not understand at his realm how to use that item.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying? Time for me to go out and have a walk.” Sacred Master left his black stone bed.
All the servants below and Master Jia Ming felt their hearts tightening. They respectfully bowed.
