Swallowed Star - Chapter 1166 Annihilation
******“Previously when I discovered Firestone Master, I secretly followed him,” said An Yong Master. “When I was near enough, I immediately released a domain type true treasure and sealed space.” An Yong Master, positioned in the void space, shook his head with a sigh. “Firestone Master was such a silly one; just when I managed to exercise some self-restraint and was so close to being able to kill him, this human form Luo Feng from the primal universe had to appear out of nowhere and foil my plan. If I had succeeded in killing Firestone Master, I would have obtained many true treasures, and with those treasures that I already owned… I suppose I would be able to exchange for a pinnacle domain true treasure.” Again, An Yong Master shook his head and sighed. He was full of resentment. By his side was another great being from the Divine Eye clan. The circular light behind its head also had a single-eyed shadow—this was a characteristic that was unique to great beings of the Divine Eye clan. “An Yong, any gains from your trip to the internal domain?” the other great being asked.“The internal domain is much too dangerous,” said An Yong Master. “I merely wandered about the considerably safer areas within the internal domain. These places had already been thoroughly searched before. Although I fought quite a fair number of battles here, and there was even once where I managed to corner my opponent, the other party was crazy enough to dash into the dangerous region within the internal domain. I was not daring enough to follow suit.” An Yong Master was filled with a sense of helplessness. “Therefore, nothing gained.”“I think it is still better to explore the water domain at one’s own pace,” the great being of the Divine Eye clan said. “The danger level is low, and occasionally, a treasure may be up for grabs. Who knows? You may even be able to cross paths with some weaker universe masters who you can kill easily.”“Imperial, your trip was rewarding?” An Yong Master asked.“Slightly.” Imperial Master smiled.******This was the only conversation that Imperial Master and An Yong Master shared. Thereafter, they parted ways. It was always lonelier within Tilted Peak Sector, so great beings of the same clan would usually engage in conversations, albeit briefly, when they met with one another.In the blink of an eye, another two years flew by.Hua! Hua! Hua!Imperial Master was handsome, and his entire being dazzled with a misty, white light. At the back of his head was the same circular light, and within this circular light was a single-eyed shadow. He flew slowly at the lowest region of the water domain. He did his best to explore the various mountain peaks at the lowest region of the water domain (naturally protruding mountain rocks), as well as the numerous valleys. He did this without a trace of impatience. He was a super great being of endless life, and even if he were to spend tens of thousands of eras exploring, it would still be very peaceful.“A cave.”A seemingly ordinary mountain cave appeared ahead, and Imperial Master flew in right away.The cave had an approximate diameter of several tens of thousands of kilometers, its depth was tens of millions kilometers. Imperial Master flew within the cave with great caution… At times, within the water domain, caves and valleys that seemed ordinary might possibly house hidden treasures.“Huh?” Imperial Master felt a faint and weak trace of energy ripples. “Energy ripples! Could it be…” Imperial Master’s eyes lit up in an instant. His face changed to one filled with vigor as his eyes swept every inch of the cave before him. He even used his godly power to scan the surroundings.He advanced at an extremely slow pace. The cave was dark, deep, and winding. Imperial Master suppressed his raging emotions; his speed went even slower.After close to six hours…“That is it!” Imperial Master had just completed a bend in the cave when he saw, at the far end, a screen of bright light. This got him even more worked up. “Haha! It might be possible that there are hidden treasures within the water domain, probably even unique gains to claim.” Imperial Master was moving at a very slow speed, but he soon arrived at the screen of bright light.“Valuables. Great treasures!”Imperial Master raised his head and saw that there was a bright screen blocking the path ahead. This bright screen was giving off an extremely weak energy ripple. Even stranger, Imperial Master had previously used his godly power to scan his surroundings, but he had not discovered this bright screen. “A bright screen… Only if there were some extremely strong true treasures in Tilted Peak Sector would such a unique situation surface. For example, if there was a dangerous land in the surroundings, or there were bright screens such as this one that went undetected.” Imperial Master was now running high on emotions. As a great being from the first universe era, he had no lack of experience. Based on his previous experiences, the bright screen by itself posed no threat.“Still better to exercise more caution,” Imperial Master said with a wave.Hua!A blue sphere appeared out of thin air and started to expand rapidly. It soon reached a height of thousands of kilometers. Imperial Master’s godly body stood at a height of 1,000 kilometers. Thus, with one step, he had made his way into the sphere.“This must be a top-tier sealed palace type true treasure. If I were to hide within it, even if a universe supreme master were to launch a full-scale attack, he would not be able to kill me.” Imperial Master grew increasingly excited. He might have roamed about for countless period and encountered unique situations due to appearances of certain treasures, but those were times that he was with the other great beings of Divine Eye clan. This was the very first time he could have such a valuable treasure all to himself.“Judging from this level of activity, this would, at the very least, be at the level of a pinnacle domain type true treasure. Who knows? It may be a strange object or even some unique object that is extraordinary.” Imperial Master was controlling the top-tier sealed-palace type true treasure.Hua!Flying slowly, when he came into contact with that bright screen, it felt as though he was breaking through a layer of water. There was not a trace of obstruction at all. “Huh? Another bright screen?” Imperial Master was shocked to discover that there was another layer of the bright screen behind the first one.Hua! Again, he broke through another layer of bright screen.“A third layer!” Imperial Master was getting more excited and expectant as he continued breaking past layers.A fourth layer! A fifth layer! A sixth layer…! There was a total of nine layers!“This must be some incredible treasure land. Haha! Seems like, I, Imperial Master, have quite good luck.” Imperial Master had just passed through the ninth layer of the bright screen…Hong!“No!”Everything resumed a state of silence.The dark, deep and winding cave went back to its normal quiet serenity. The bright screen was still there; there was not a trace of difference or change. It was as though Imperial Master had never entered.******The Divine Eye race from the first universe era owned seven miniature universes. In the middle of one. Before his avatar appeared, Imperial Master was filled with excitement and expectation, but what closely followed was a look of fear and panic.“No!” Peng!His avatar was annihilated The instant when his avatar was annihilated, the master of that entire miniature universe, which was the third true master of the Divine Eye clan, discovered right away.“Imperial… has been annihilated!” His sighs resonated throughout the entire miniature universe.On the supreme land of the miniature universe, the avatars of a dozen universe masters residing at different places started to arrive. “Third True Master, Imperial Master has been annihilated?”“How did he come to be annihilated?”“Who killed him?”“How did he die?”Within an instant, everyone was shooting questions out of anxiety. After all, according to their clan’s method of division, Imperial Master was a fourth-tier universe master (considered to be at the top-tier level), so even if he was exchanging blows with a universe supreme being, if the fight lasted for a short period of time, he could still hope for chances of survival. To the entire Divine Eye clan, the annihilation of a universe master was an occurrence that would only happen once in a blue moon.A sound was heard from the sky. “Imperial was annihilated within a split-second; his avatar was not able to leave behind any information at all. The speed at which he was annihilated did not even give him time to leave any information. The moment one meets with an extremely dangerous situation, the foremost thing to do should be to establish contact with other great beings to call for help.” The voice articulated these words slowly. “That means… Imperial Master must not have detected any trace of danger beforehand. And when he realized how frighteningly close danger was, it was time for him to face annihilation.”“He didn’t even get to find out why he was annihilated?”“Even a universe supreme master would not be able to achieve this.”“What can be so fearsome?”“Seems like it was purely Tilted Peak Sector in its truest form creating such fearsome danger. Solely a great being’s power alone will not be able to achieve something of this degree.”The avatars of these universe masters all knew.******The Divine Eye clan was divided into seven major miniature universes, and naturally, all of them kept close contact with one another. News of the annihilation of Imperial Master was rapidly spread to the higher-ups of the Divine Eye clan. “Imperial was exploring the water domain.”“Danger must have reached him from a certain area within the water domain.”“For something to create the danger of instant annihilation for Imperial even within its water domain… There is something quite extraordinary about this place.” “According to the final information related to this situation that could be found, shortly before his annihilation, Imperial ought to have been at the 193,293rd frame of reference shortly before his fall… Now, I am ordering the three universe masters from my clan who are in the water domain of Tilted Peak Sector—An Yong Master, Replenishment Master, and Time Banishing Master—to head to this frame of reference within the water domain to conduct investigations. You all must be very careful… If you find something amiss or detect a trace of danger, you cannot dash in there on your own.”“Understood!”“Understood!”“Understood!”An Yong Master, Replenishment Master, and Time Banishing Master responded to the order without further ado, then teleported within the void space of Tilted Peak Sector at a very high speed. They ventured deep into the water domain and advanced to the 193,293rd frame of reference for detailed exploration.
