“I’m sure you can guess by now why I came to find you.” Great Emperor North River said.
“What for? Unless you are planning to become my subordinate?” Xue Ying looked at North River, “Do you dare?”
North River’s expression shifted slightly.
Within Scarlet Cloud City, Xue Ying was a mighty force that few could contend! There were simply too many cultivators who wished to become his subordinate.
“The reason I came is because of the Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet.” Great Emperor North River coldly uttered, “If we were in some other worlds, I’ll definitely not sell it to you. But now, I need food. Hence, I am willing to sell this bead of Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet to you! State your price. If it is satisfiable, I’ll give it to you.”
“Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet?” Xue Ying felt his heart skipping a bead.
He had always desired to get his hands on it.
If one said that many other external treasures within the Sacred World could help Xue Ying cultivate his ‘Dao of Void’, then there was only the mysterious Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet left behind by that terrifying ‘Thousand-Eyed Existence’ that could aid him in his Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm. He only had a momentary chance to examine the Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet in the past before it was snatched away by Great Emperor North River.
“Ten Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.” Xue Ying stated.
Great Emperor North River felt his heart twitching.
That could only last him several hundred billion years right?
“Not enough. It is largely not enough.” Great Emperor North River coldly laughed, “Ying Shan Xue Ying, to you, acquiring Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeforms is simply too easy. You just have to go out once and you can easily gather dozens of them. Right now, you wish to purchase the Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet with just ten Chaotic Origin Lifeforms? This is something left behind by the Thousand-Eyed Existence. That is a terrifying Chaotic Origin Lifeform that could even injure the magnificent ‘Yuan’. I’m sure you should know how much more valuable it is compared to these ordinary Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.”
“Ten isn’t enough?” Xue Ying frowned.
Great Emperor North River stared at Xue Ying, “You just have to gather a thousand Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform and this Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet will belong to you.”
Xue Ying felt his eyebrows twitching. He looked at Great Emperor North River with a smile that did not seem like one: “A thousand? With so much food, I doubt you would have to go out and risk your life anymore isn’t it? I suggest you go out more often and train yourself. This training is definitely helpful to you for your cultivation. I feel that ten is more than enough.”
“No, it is vastly not enough.” Great Emperor North River shook his head.
“There is only me who needs the Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet. Other than me, are there anybody who would still purchase it in the Scarlet Cloud City?” Xue Ying asked.
“If I released the news that this is a material left behind by the body of a humongous Chaotic Origin Lifeform that was close to the size of an Origin World, how much do you think I can sell this ‘Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet’ for?” Great Emperor North River retorted.
Xue Ying sneered: “Do you think others would believe you if you were to release this news? Actually, other cultivators would understand with a glance that this Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet isn’t helpful to them. Who would then be willing to fork out a huge price? In this Sacred World, all other cultivators are much weaker than me on the Dao of Soul. It is impossible for you to sell at a high price.”
“Perhaps I might be able to.” Great Emperor North River looked at Xue Ying.
“Don’t threaten me.”
Xue Ying coldly said, “Firstly, with my strength, I am already unparalleled in the Broken Teeth Mountain Range! The five Great Supremes of the Broken Teeth Mountain Range have to show some respect to me too. The moment a bead of Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet appear, I believe they would give it to me.”
Great Emperor North River trembled.
Perhaps there might be a moment in time when a new Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet is discovered in the Broken Teeth Mountain Range. With Xue Ying’s current strength, he could kill most Grand Perfection God Emperors. How would the five Great Supremes dare to slight him then?
“Secondly, if I want you to die, it isn’t that hard actually.” Xue Ying stared at Great Emperor North River.
Great Emperor North River felt many thoughts flash through his mind. That’s right. All Xue Ying had to do is to request the help of the organizer of a hunting team. It was likely that an apex expert would be willing to show some respect to Xue Ying! If they were to go out and hunt for food, without the aid of any other comrades, he, North River, would easily lose his life.
“That time when I just arrived at the Scarlet Cloud City, haven’t you said that we should place aside our grievances temporarily in this world?” Xue Ying said, “I have never thought of acting against you, so are you sure you want to threaten me?”
North River’s expression became uglier.
Given Xue Ying’s current fame, it was easy for Xue Ying to threaten him, making his days harder to pass by. Xue Ying could make it so that no team members would help him when he hunted outside. They could completely watch as he died. Just like previously, if ‘Heart Eye Sword Ancestor’ chose not to help, he would have long died.
Or perhaps not!
If North River was in a desperate situation, he could activate the imprint on his wristband and proceed to the third world.
Xue Ying looked at him. He understood that North River could always head to the third world. Hence, he was not in a rush to force the other party.
But Xue Ying believed that Great Emperor North River was someone ambitious–he would not be willing to leave this world for no reason.
Each world was a huge opportunity given by Yuan! And they had to treasure all of them.
“Alright, 100 Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeforms and I’ll sell this Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet to you.” Great Emperor North River gritted his teeth.
“100? Forget it. I’ll take a step back. 20 and not one more.” Xue Ying coldly stated.
Great Emperor North River looked at Xue Ying before finally agreeing to it: “You are ruthless. Alright, take it.”
Xue Ying did not say anything else. He simply threw over a storage treasure.
Great Emperor North River similarly threw the Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet over.
The Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet was like a bead of droplet. As it flew across, it was constantly reflecting light.
Xue Ying extended his hand and watched as the Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet fell onto his palm.
‘I’ve finally gotten it.’ Xue Ying felt a wave of excitement course through his heart. Even though it was possible for another bead of Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet to appear in Broken Teeth Mountain Range, such supreme treasures were simply too rare! It was normal for one to wait more than a trillion years before another appeared.
The earlier he acquired it, the earlier he could comprehend it.
“Hu.” Great Emperor North River examined the 20 Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses in the storage treasure. He could not help but feel elated. No matter what, at least he had achieved his goal, albeit much fewer than expected.
Great Emperor North River simply turned and left.
Xue Ying watched at the departing back figure of Great Emperor North River. Once he left, Xue Ying immediately turned to comprehending this Thousand-Eyed Water Droplet on his hand. He had many avatars, and part of them were comprehending on the Dao of Void while the others on the Dao of Mirage. Xue Ying had never given up on any of his two Daos. Even though he had walked further in the Dao of Void, the ‘Dao of Mirage’ was simply more heaven-defying.
It was already this strong now. The moment it reached the final realm, Xue Ying had a vague feeling that he could fuse his soul into the source of the world. By then, as long as the world remained, he would never die! This was something he could confirm. There were many that he had yet to affirm and would only find out once he broke through.
Soul was the root of a living being.
Hence, Xue YIng naturally looked forward to the day he reached the final realm in his Dao of Soul!
Xue Ying spent close to 10 billion years comprehending through all the 15 Void Lineage Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses that he just received.
He then analyzed all 21 Void Lineage Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses again and again. He even corroborated what he learned from each corpse with other corpses to deduce out many new cultivation techniques. After which he would experiment with them!
During these days of cultivation.
Xue Ying would occasionally organize some ‘hunting teams’. The moment he organized one, even when he arranged to take away 90% of the spoils of war, many cultivators across the entire Scarlet Cloud City still came in crowds to apply for it. It was fine when apex cultivators decided to join–they were there just to interact and befriend Xue Ying. Other ordinary Grand Perfection God Emperors, especially Late Stage God Emperors were fighting to join.
Nonetheless, Xue Ying had limited the size of each team to 50 at most!
After all, he was merely hunting outside the city and there was no need for so many cultivators to join.
During the first hunt that Xue Ying organized, they brought back a total of 75 Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses! There were many more Late Stage and Middle Stage God Emperor corpses. Even when 10% was left to distribute between other members, most could still receive sufficient food to last billions of years! Easily acquiring food to last billions of years in a short hunt that was both safe and easy, most cultivators naturally sought to join Xue Ying.
He organized several hunting teams. Firstly, he did it to help some friends like God Eagle Snake and Scarlet Demon. Secondly, he did it to temper himself! Xue Ying would usually leave some Chaotic Origin Lifeforms that were not suppressed by the Mirage and Illusory Realm before experimenting with his techniques.
In the blink of an eye, 100 billion years passed.
