Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1362
Chapter 1362 – Pursuing After The Quiet Icy Mountain Master
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
Because this team that Xue Ying was in had been revealed, they no longer cared about hiding their presence. Instead, they used their fastest speed to dash over.
Quiet Icy Mountain Master was also receiving consecutive pieces of news.
“Among the team of cultivators include Scarlet Cloud City City Master ‘Wu Xiao’, ‘Great Emperor Heaven Calamity’, ‘Monarch Ardent Creek’…”
“The team of cultivators are flying over at a speed approximately three times faster than ours! They are moving too fast and are currently charging directly towards us.”
More and more information came in one after another.
Quiet Icy Mountain Master’s expression became grave and stern.
“Chi chi chi~” Suddenly, the light of those golden inscriptions marked on the shackles intensified. That Chaotic Origin Prisoner ‘Quiet Icy Mountain Master’ could not help but let out a low growl from agonizing pain. This pain had seeped deep into every single part of his body. It had also seeped deep into his soul. After all, this was a torture arranged by the Overlords specially for them.
‘They are actually obstructing our path of return, and have gathered quite a few formidable cultivators.’ Quiet Icy Mountain Master gritted his teeth pondering.
He had two choices.
Firstly, he could send out all his protectors to obstruct the cultivators. He had a total of 3,000 protectors by his side and 2,000 additional responsible for scouting nearby! With a command, he would have a huge number of protectors defending him and that would most likely give him some time. And when he moved alone, he would use his fastest speed to return to his territory! Even though his fastest speed might not surpass that of the fastest cultivator in Scarlet Cloud City, the gap was not too big.
If his subordinates could tangle with the cultivators for a slightly longer period, he would have the chance to return back after taking a detour!
After all, the closer he was to his territory, the stronger he would be!
But the moment his periodic torture erupts… the closer he got to his territory, the more intensified it would be. That was why he was forced to go ‘out for a patrol’.
‘It is simply too dangerous.’
‘If I sent out all my protectors, the moment they fail to delay the cultivators for a slight bit of time, the cultivators would have chased up to me! If I were to face them alone, I would be in life-threatening danger. If I were to be closer to my territory by then, I might perhaps survive. Otherwise, I would lose my life.’ Quiet Icy Mountain Master thought. Even though he was suffering from intense agonizing torture, he did not feel willing to die like this.
He was still waiting.
Waiting for the day an expert of their Innate Chaotic Origin Lifeforms come to save them!
‘The other option is to escape with all my protectors! Even though it is impossible for me to escape from the cultivators, I can still battle and is safer.’ Quiet Icy Mountain Master thought.
Escaping together, he would have 3,000 protectors around him! And 2,000 more in the surrounding area to converge on him.
During the process of escaping, he could always order his subordinates to converge on him.
When the battle began, the number of protectors he would have could increase to 6,000 or even 7,000… with so many protectors, even if that team of cultivators was strong, they would be helpless.
‘I shall escape together with them.’
Quiet Icy Mountain Master made his decision.
If he knew about Xue Ying’s soul technique that could easily eliminate all the protectors, he would have chosen the first path!
With so many protectors delaying time for him, he would then escape alone! And that would give him some hope of escaping. After all, the closer he got to his territory, the stronger he would be, and the faster he would get.
It’s just that he was unaware of Xue Ying’s soul technique.
Hence, he chose the safer and more ‘certain’ second path.
The protectors of Chaotic Origin Prisoner ‘Quiet Icy Mountain Master’ started streaming in and converging on his position. Very soon, 5,000 protectors had gathered. They were even escaping in a detour. At the same time when they ran, many more subordinates were gathering on them.
Everything happened within the examination of Xue Ying’s team of cultivators.
“That Chaotic Origin Prisoner has really chosen the method of escaping with his protectors.” Wu Xiao sneered.
“Only with his protectors would he feel safer.” City Master Nine-Headed sneered, “He does not dare to gamble, nor is he willing to. He is afraid of dying in our hands! After all, he is a High-Graded Chaotic Origin Lifeform. If he died in the hands of us cultivators who aren’t even Chaotic Origin Lifeforms, it’ll be a huge humiliation to him. It’s a pity that his thinking is wrong. We have Monarch Flying Snow.”
“With Monarch Flying Snow, he is definitely dead this time.”
“Right, he is definitely going to die.”
Quite a few cultivators in the team had once dealt with Quiet Icy Mountain Master before.
The entire team was engulfed by a huge golden bird.
The huge golden bird was resplendent and dazzling. With a wave of its wings, it easily arced through the sky, moving at a speed so fast that it alarmed Xue Ying. This was unquestionably the fastest cultivator in Scarlet Cloud City.
Ever since Quiet Icy Mountain Master chose to escape, Xue Ying’s team of cultivators was no longer encountering any huge hindrances. The path of pursuit was smooth.
“We see him.”
“He is there!”
Xue Ying and the other cultivators easily saw that huge group of Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.
Quiet Icy Mountain Master was still in his humanoid form. He had over 6,000 ‘Quiet Destruction Wolves’ around him. These Quiet Destruction Wolves were all entirely black in color. Their bodies were faintly translucent, and close to 6,000 of them were all Grand Perfection God Emperors! There were also several hundred Late Stage God Emperors.𝒇𝑟e𝗲𝚠𝚎𝐛𝗻𝐨νel. 𝒄om
The two teams no longer escaped. Instead, they charged towards each other.
One team had a huge number. After all, every Quiet Destruction Wolf was already big, and there were more than 6,000 of them covering the whole place. As for the cultivators, they only had 56 in total. They were comparatively much fewer in numbers.
But Quiet Icy Mountain Master did not dare to be careless because he was clear how powerful this team of cultivators was! Even though he had many subordinates, no matter what, 6,000 of them could not fight with the 56 at the same time. When the ‘team of cultivators’ worked together, they could completely charge through those protectors! Of course, if there was any issue with the coordination in the team of cultivators, they would be in deep trouble.
“Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor, you really do not know how to give up.” Quiet Icy Mountain Master’s voice cut through the void.
“That’s right. I do not know how to give up, which is why I am here again. I urge you to just obediently die. That way, you no longer need to suffer from any pain, and there is no need for me to come disturb you.” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor answered.
“You aren’t even a Chaotic Origin Lifeform yet you dare to act so arrogantly before me.” Quiet Icy Mountain Master shook his head.
“You are constantly being tortured and your strength suppressed. Hence, you aren’t very much stronger than us. Don’t be too proud of yourself. You have been imprisoned here by the magnificent Overlords. And there is only one outcome for you—death! Even so, it is better that you just die now.” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor said.
As both parties conversed, the distance between them shrank.
“Hmph, you have come multiple times previously to kill me yet you here I stand alive. Furthermore, there were even cultivators who had been eaten by me.” Quiet Icy Mountain Master licked his lips, “The taste of cultivators intoxicate me. You are all truly delicious.”
Before being imprisoned.
He had not really cared about eating cultivators.
But now… after the Overlords imprisoned them and tortured them, when they ate ‘cultivators’, they would feel their pain lessening. They might even have a momentary period where they felt extreme pleasure.
Being tortured day and night, they got used to it. When they suddenly felt an intense pleasure coursing through their bodies… even as a High-Graded Chaotic Origin Lifeform, they still looked forward to it.
“Kill.” The expression of Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor turned frosty as he shouted.
“Children, kill them for me.” Quiet Icy Mountain Master’s eyes were filled with killing intent too.
Both parties finally clashed.
The cultivators were like a sharp blade easily cutting through the incoming enemies. They simply charged forward.
As for the Quiet Destruction Wolves, even though they were forced aside and injured, their life force was vibrant. At present, only ‘Wu Xiao’ could kill one in a strike. Even Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor had to take several moves to kill a Grand Perfection God Emperor Quiet Destruction Wolf. In addition, those wolves were working with one another. Filled with humongous life force, those Quiet Destruction Wolves were able to fight and hold back the cultivators.
With the advantage of an enormous number, under the circumstance that Xue Ying had not executed his soul technique, this team of cultivators had to do their utmost before they could continue advancing forward.
‘We just have to break apart their coordination and they will start dying.’ Quiet Icy Mountain Master watched as the cultivators charged over, though he was fully confident. His past experiences led him to understand that it was impossible to break through the defenses of the cultivators only when they were perfectly coordinating with one another! After all, being attacked by several thousand Grand Perfection God Emperor Quiet Destruction Wolves was seriously terrifying.
The moment any issue cropped out.
When a cultivator seemed to be fighting by himself! It was very possible for losses to accrue, especially when a cultivator only had the strength of a Grand Perfection God Emperor without being aided by his comrades. Under the situation when 10 to 20 Quiet Destruction Wolves attacking him at the same time, he would most likely be exterminated in an instance.
‘I have to find an opportunity to break apart their coordination.’ Quiet Icy Mountain Master examined carefully. He even retreated slightly to maintain a distance with the cultivators.
“Is it time to act?”
“Nine-Headed, are we going to act now?”
“We cannot delay any further.”
Many transmissions were sent. The cultivators were all paying attention to Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor.
“We are very close to him.” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor was also carefully paying notice to their target, “We can easily dash across this short distance. Alright, Brother Flying Snow, time for you to cast your technique.”
“Haha, I have been waiting for this, City Master Nine-Headed.” Xue Ying who was constantly being protected by the team began activating his technique.
An enormous illusory realm descended, enveloping a huge region of Quiet Destruction Wolves. At this moment, the approximate 5,000 Quiet Destruction Wolves that were closer to them had fallen into the region of this illusory realm!
