Chapter 1355 – A Promise

Xue Ying pondered for a while before replying: “Killing a Chaotic Origin Prisoner is very difficult. It is also very dangerous! A Chaotic Origin Prisoner will suffer from torture and suppression constantly. It is expected that the Chaotic Origin Prisoner would control himself to prevent his weakened body from getting heavily injured. But the moment he realizes he is in danger of dying, he’ll definitely go mad, putting in everything on the line for the battle! According to my knowledge, there are some in the history of Scarlet Cloud City who attempted to kill a Chaotic Origin Prisoner. More often than not, those cultivators would end up in failure and die a tragic death.”
Previously when he encountered the group of Hidden Devil Hunters, he had fought with the Chaotic Origin Prisoner leading the Hidden Devil Hunters.
Xue Ying saw the broken body of the other party. He saw huge injuries and withering muscles. He even saw many fractures on the bones. It was apparent that once the wave of punishment came down on the Chaotic Origin Prisoner, his bodily injuries would worsen to a grave degree. Most Chaotic Origin Prisoners would not be willing to let themselves be injured during battles.
“Yes, it is dangerous. But with the help of Monarch Flying Snow, our chances would be significantly higher.” Weather Leaf said.
“City Master, what can you give me in return?” Xue Ying continued.
Weather Leaf hesitated momentarily.
What could he give?
Food? In terms of food, nobody in the Sacred World would dare to say they could acquire food more easily than Monarch Flying Snow! His soul technique gave him the capability to venture through the Sacred World alone, easily killing all Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.
“You have acquired six Dao Lineage Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses earlier right?” Weather Leaf said, “I’ll help you get 15 more Dao Lineage Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses while assuring you that all of them are Grand Perfection God Emperors. You should know that most of them are located far away from our Scarlet Cloud City. Some of them are even close to the other assembly grounds.”
“I can easily exchange them using food.” Xue Ying shook his head.
“But some of them live close to the other four cities. It is very hard for you to exchange them.” Weather Leaf said.
“I can always fork out more food.” Xue Ying retorted.
Weather Leaf felt helpless.
Meeting this rich and imposing Monarch Flying Snow, he as a City Master felt helpless.
“I cultivate in the Dao of Void and Dao of Mirage.” Xue Ying said, “If City Master could find something that is of great help to me on these two Daos, I would perhaps help you out.”
“Alright.” Weather Leaf nodded slightly. Some precious treasures flitted through his mind. He had contact with the other four cities. The cultivators in the Sacred World originated from many different worlds. Some might even be the descendants of Chaotic Origin Experts! He knew some supreme treasures used for cultivation and all he could do is to prepare them in exchange for Xue Ying’s help.
“Then let us leave this matter as such. I shall make my move first.” Xue Ying smiled and stood up.
Weather Leaf nodded slightly.
He really had no choice.
In terms of influencing power in Scarlet Cloud City, this Monarch Flying Snow would likely not have any less than he as a City Master! Furthermore, it was even possible that more cultivators would rather follow after Monarch Flying Snow. Without sufficient payment, would this Monarch Flying Snow be willing to risk his life for his goal? Impossible!
‘My Mirage and Illusory Realm holds a miraculous effect against ordinary Chaotic Origin Lifeforms. However, to Chaotic Origin Prisoners, it is useless. My life would hence be threatened when facing a Chaotic Origin Prisoner. I can’t promise to help him this easily.’ Xue Ying thought. Chaotic Origin Prisoners were High-Graded Chaotic Origin Lifeforms. Their souls were too powerful, so powerful that Xue Ying’s current Mirage and Illusory Realm were futile.
And when he boosted his fleshy body to the peak, Xue Ying would merely be ranked at the bottom of the strongest apex cultivators within Scarlet Cloud City. Moreover, he could only maintain this state for the time taken to brew a cup of tea. That was simply too dangerous!
‘Even though this is only an avatar of mine, and I would remain perfectly fine given my avatars located in my hometown Origin World and Realm Heart Great Land, this opportunity of mine would be cut the moment I die.’ Xue Ying treasured his days of cultivation in the Sacred World.
After leaving the side hall, he arrived at the outdoor garden.
Almost all cultivators in the garden had left. Currently, there was only the Vice-City Master ‘Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’ left drinking wine alone. Even Wu Xiao had left.
“Brother Flying Snow.” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor pointed to his side with a smile, “Have a seat.”
“I’ve made City Master Nine-Headed wait.” Xue Ying said.
“Our lives are eternal. Such a short wait isn’t worth mentioning.” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor looked at Xue Ying, “Weather Leaf wishes to get your help to kill that Chaotic Origin Prisoner located in ‘Wind Devil Valley’ right?”
“Yes.” Xue Ying nodded, “But I did not agree.”
Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor felt his heart palpitating.
Did not agree?
It seemed that getting the help of this Monarch Flying Snow isn’t easy.
“I believe that Brother Flying Snow will accept my request then.” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor said.
“Oh, do tell me more.” Xue Ying replied.
“I too wish to kill a Chaotic Origin Prisoner. In the entire Sacred World, there are a total of 21 Void Lineage Chaotic Origin Lifeforms. And of those 21, only three clans exist that contain a Chaotic Origin Prisoner. These three Chaotic Origin Prisoners might be different kinds of High-Graded Chaotic Origin Lifeforms, but they all belong to the Void Lineage. What I wish to kill is one of these three Chaotic Origin Prisoners, the ‘Quiet Icy Mountain Master’.” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor said.
Xue Ying felt his heart skip a beat.
Quiet Icy Mountain Master?
There were only three Chaotic Origin Prisoners with the Void Lineage. This was something he naturally knew! To Xue Ying, the complete corpse of a Void Lineage High-Graded Chaotic Origin Lifeform was worth way more than those Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses. That was a qualitative transformation! But usually, those of the Void Lineage were slightly good at surviving. Hence, killing them was more difficult.
This ‘Quiet Icy Mountain Master’ might live in the Quiet Icy Mountain, yet it was genuinely part of the Void Lineage.
“After killing it, the heart and all blood of this Quiet Icy Mountain Master will be given to me. As for other parts of the corpse, they will be given to you.” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor looked at Xue Ying, “How about that?”
“Oh?” Xue Ying was moved by this condition.
Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor was a ‘Witch’. He primarily cultivated by collecting bloodlines of other Chaotic Origin Lifeforms before fusing them into his body. What he cared most was the heart and blood.
And Xue Ying in reality needed just the manifested laws on the corpse for cultivation. For instance, parts like the scales, the muscles, the bones, teeth, and other body parts.
“You only need the heart and the blood?” Xue Ying asked again.
“Right, I can even give you 10% of the blood.” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor replied.
“What about other members of the tea?” Xue Ying asked, “After the two of us divide the corpse equally, what are they getting?”
“Since I am asking them for help, I have naturally already satisfied their requests.” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor said. How would the other cultivators have such a high request like ‘Monarch Flying Snow’? But he had no choice. The most precious resource in the Sacred World, ‘food’, could easily be acquired by Monarch Flying Snow. As for his soul technique… it was the biggest help one could ask for in the hunt for a Chaotic Origin Prisoner.
“You may feel rest assured. Since I have promised you these conditions, I’ll naturally announce it during team formation.” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor soothed Xue Ying’s worries.
“Your meaning is…” Xue Ying chuckled, “Using treasures that haven’t been received before asking me to risk my life for it?”
Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor waved his hand before throwing a golden wristband: “There are nine Void Lineage Grand Perfection God Emperor corpses. They are entirely different from the six that Heaven Calamity traded with you. This is temporarily what I have collected. The remaining few live close to other assembly grounds. Collecting them is incredibly difficult. These… just treat them as my gift for you, Brother Flying Snow.”
Xue Ying took over. He examined the wristband, discovering the nine Void Lineage Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses within. All of them were Grand Perfection God Emperors. Xue Ying could not help but feel joy coursing through him.
Of the 21 kinds of corpses… he had gathered 15 of them.
This Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor was incredibly generous. In comparison, City Master ‘Weather Leaf’ was less straightforward!
Xue Ying mumbled inwardly in his heart.
“Give me 300 billion years.” Xue Ying said, “I have just arrived not too long ago in the Sacred World and do need some time to cultivate. Give me at most 300 billion years. By then, I’ll set off together with you, City Master Nine-Headed, to deal with that Quiet Icy Mountain Master! If we were to succeed, we would divide the corpse of the Quiet Icy Mountain Master accordingly as you mentioned, City Master Nine-Headed. 300 billion years… City Master Nine-Headed, do you have the patience to wait?”
“Alright, it’s a deal then!” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor immediately replied.
If this was in the outer world.
Just 300 billion years was simply too short! To these terrifying existences that were very close to the Chaotic Origin Lifeform Level, it was a fleeting moment. However, in the Sacred World where food was a scarce resource, 300 billion years was considered quite long.
But to Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor, 300 billion years would pass easily for him.
“It’s a deal.” Xue Ying chuckled.
He promised the other party primarily because of the huge enticement from the Quiet Icy Mountain Master’s corpse. Even without Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’s help, in the future when he was sufficiently strong, he would still organize a team to kill a Void Lineage Chaotic Origin Prisoner.
