Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 987: Coercion
The scarlet energy that was condensed from the Realm Heart Order had always been lying dormant deep in Xue Ying’s soul. He could not expel it. At this moment, Xue Ying sent a strand of his true soul into this scarlet energy, easily fusing into it. Furthermore, it gave off an ‘eager feeling’ that made Xue Ying sense the world beyond the primal chaos void.
It was like how he could peer into the higher dimensional world through the black fog spherical hole. But what he saw was just the tip of an iceberg.
Currently as his strand of true soul entered the Realm Heart Order energy, he was able to sense how vast the world beyond the primal chaos void was. Furthermore, he could even feel a horrifying fluctuation coming from a world not any weaker than the ‘primal chaos void’.
‘I can activate it with just a single thought?’ Xue Ying understood after fusing in.
The Realm Heart Order had been refined by a mysterious ancient existence called ‘Yuan’. He did it to help cultivators reincarnate and proceed into another huge world not weaker than the primal chaos void–Realm Heart Great Land!
In order to protect the true soul, penetrate from the primal chaos void into the Realm Heart Great Land and reincarnate there… all it required was by consuming the energy from the Realm Heart Order! As for the energy within Xue Ying’s body, it was useless. He could not achieve this at all with his current level.
Under normal circumstances…
Only cultivators who had been stuck in a bottleneck for far too long and were in despair would they be willing to forgo their fleshy body and soul, deciding to send a strand of true spirit into another world.
Want to come back?
One had to become a Cosmos God before he could activate the Realm Heart Order energy once again. Without breaking through, the user would either die in the Realm Heart Great Land or stay there forever.
‘Who would have thought that I, Dong Bo Xue Ying, would have been forced to this stage.’ Xue Ying felt bitter in his heart.
Xue Ying’s body had been thrown down within the palace hall, smashing into a pillar by the side. He slowly brought himself up by with support from the pillar. Having his energy and even his soul sealed, he could only exert the most fundamental fleshy body strength of his. It was near impossible for him to suicide using this energy. After all, his level of existence was too high, and this fleshy body energy could not harm his soul. But by relying on the ‘Realm Heart Order’, Xue Ying was able to reincarnate, and that was considered suicide from another point of view.
Everything was silent within the palace hall. The servants did not even dare to let out a sound.
Sacred Master was casually walking back to his black stone bed before sitting down cross-legged over there. He looked down at Xue Ying, saying: “Dong Bo Xue Ying, I can promise that you will live if you obediently listen to me. This is my promise, and I will not go against it for the sake of a little fellow like you.”
“Sacred Master regards me highly already for you to act personally against me.” Xue Ying calmly said.
“Of the five great sacred worlds in the primal chaos void, few can be qualified to be my opponent. The one with the greatest potential of all is that Swordmaster from your Great Void Heaven Temple. He actually made me suffer from a loss.” Sacred Master sat there, “I’ve heard your talent is not bad. You were able to cultivate quite quickly. Who knows if you might just become a Cosmos God some day. If you die like this, it won’t be worth it at all.”
“If Sacred Master has a request, just tell me directly.” Xue Ying said.
“I’ve heard that you grasped part of the core inheritance belonging to the lineage of Myriad Realm Tavern Master and Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master?” Sacred Master said, “I am interested in it.”
‘Part of the core inheritance? In the end, it’s still them.’ Xue Ying felt relatively furious in his heart.
That was just too ruthless.
He did not learn any cultivation technique belonging to their lineage before. They merely discovered that his ultra-long distance teleportation was similar to theirs, and judged that he had stolen from them. It was okay if they failed to assassinate him, yet now, they even leaked the news to Sacred Master, causing him to personally act.
‘Damn.’ Even though he felt frustrated and disgusted regarding those in the Myriad Realm Tavern Master’s lineage, he had no choice since Myriad Realm Tavern Master had too many avatars, and the avatar of Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master could not be found. Nobody could kill them at all! Facing an enemy that could not die, Xue Ying felt angry yet helpless at the same time.
‘Who would have thought that this ultra-long distance teleportation belonging to Monarch Nine Cloud would bring such a great calamity.’ Xue Ying felt feeble. He had been quite careful.
But he could not just learn this teleportation technique and not use it at all, right?
Xue Ying even endured until the Primal Chaos realm before using it in public, disguising it as an ancient cultivation talent. Nobody suspected him for this before in the past. Many Cosmos Gods personally saw him employing it. Even the cultivators staying in the Void Castle saw him using it.
Instead, it was Myriad Realm Tavern Master and Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master who determined that it could not be an ancient cultivation talent and should be a teleportation technique belonging to their lineage.
“What kind of status does Sacred Master has? For you to actually help Myriad Realm Tavern Master and Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master?” Xue Ying shook his head.
“I am not helping them. Instead, I want this inheritance.” Sacred Master looked at Xue Ying, “Tell me everything you know and I promise I’ll let you off.”
The reason why he was speaking so nicely…
Was because it was pointless relying on using illusory realm to make Xue Ying illustrate the art to him. After all, Xue Ying’s control of the illusory realm was more formidable than Sacred Master. He was the strongest cultivator in this aspect.
Directly scouring through his memories by targeting Xue Ying’s soul? That was too barbaric. If the gap in their strength was huge, this could be done. Nevertheless, Xue Ying specialized in the illusory realm. His Vermillion Nightmare inheritance targeted the soul too–Xue Ying even reached the unprecedented tenth transformation. The degree of his soul strength was far beyond what other ninth level Primal Chaos giants had… it was too difficult to search through his soul since it was practically comparable to that of Cosmos Gods!
Want to search through his soul? It would only cause Xue Ying’s soul to dissipate, and in the end, Sacred Master would merely obtain bits and pieces of the technique. He could not search through Xue Ying’s entire memory.
That was why Sacred Master decided to take the initiative and ask him nicely. He also promised to let Xue Ying off. Only when he had no other choices would he choose to ‘search the soul’ of Xue Ying.
As Xue Ying ‘negotiated’ with Sacred Master, he was also deliberately delaying for more time.
Because he had already decided! It was impossible for Xue Ying to give the inheritance from Monarch Nine Cloud to Sacred Master. With how strong Sacred Master was, why would he give him more techniques? Even if he did not have the Realm Heart Order, Xue Ying would not agree to the other party either.
He was currently delaying for time…
Merely because he wanted to arrange everything before his death.
‘I no longer have sufficient time. I have always wanted to find another golden-armored graded lair, but I have no time left.’ The incarnation of Xue Ying within the Great Void Heaven Temple Mirage Palace Hall would dissipate as long as Xue Ying chose to reincarnate.
‘Fortunately, I have left behind spatial markings on the three golden-armored graded lair that I found.’ Xue Ying thought. Previously, he merely dispatched two incarnations into the Lost World Corridor in search of more golden-armored graded lairs. It was impossible for them to always remain there. Hence, he left behind spatial markings at a relatively common sealed space close to the golden-armored graded lairs.
‘Adding up the other golden-armored graded lair which I reported to Ancestor Sorcerer and the others, I, Dong Bo Xue Ying, has found four golden-armored graded lairs in total. It’s a pity that I do not have enough time. If only I have enough time, with my scouting technique… I would be able to search through the entire Lost World Corridor once.’ Xue Ying thought.
More than a trillion years.
Xue Ying had merely searched through the tip of an iceberg within the primal chaos void for the Destruction Devils.
But the Lost World Corridor was much smaller than the primal chaos void. He had already searched through approximately 60-70% of the total area. If he had another trillion years, Xue Ying would be able to search through the entire place without leaving any place uncovered!
“Xue Ying, you aren’t cultivating?” Jing Qiu appeared outside the palace. She revealed a joyous look.
Because this incarnation of Xue Ying would usually be cultivating by observing the scaled-armor left behind by General Mo Gu.
“Jing Qiu.” Xue Ying looked at his wife. He felt his heart trembling.
“Jing Qiu, get Qing Yao, and Yu’er to come back as soon as possible. This is urgent.” Xue Ying said.
“Why the rush?” Jing Qiu felt puzzled, “Yu’er is still in closed-door cultivation.”
