Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1363
Chapter 1363 – Coldness In His Heart
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
These Grand Perfection God Emperor ‘Quiet Destruction Wolves’ were all very intelligent. At this moment, they discovered startlingly, that their souls were being ‘pulled’ by a terrifying force. They could feel their consciousness falling into an enormous illusory realm! Deep in their hearts, they felt that this illusory realm was simply too frightening. The moment they fell into it, they would die.
All of them did their best to resist the pull. However, the majority of them had to expend a majority of their heartforce in dealing with this illusion. As a result, their combat techniques became much more crude and weaker.
“Haha, their strengths have greatly weakened.”
“They only have the strength of a Late Stage God Emperor. There is simply no cause for anxiety as we can sweep across them easily!” The cultivators discovered this with great joy. Like Vice-City Master ‘Wu Xiao’, his enormous silver-white stature of 3,000 meters tall was incredibly fierce. With both his hands, he casually swatted across his surroundings. “Peng peng peng”, more than 300 Quiet Destruction Wolves were forced away by his slap. Those wolves were even injured, causing blood to splatter around the place.
After all, Late Stage God Emperors were one entire level weaker than Grand Perfection God Emperors. The gap between them and apex cultivators was even bigger! Apex cultivators could easily suppress them with a single strike. It was only due to their great life force that they did not die so easily. However, an existence like ‘Wu Xiao’ or ‘Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’ that were stronger by a certain percentage than apex cultivators could still easily sweep through these weakened Quiet Destruction Wolves.
“Awesome. This is simply awesome.” Great Emperor Heaven Calamity guffawed. His strength was close to the three City Masters. At this moment, his blade ruled the world. Many Quiet Destruction Wolves were forced away.
“These Quiet Destruction Wolves are significantly weakened. However, their bodies are still very powerful. They can easily retreat. Killing them isn’t an easy task.”
“There’s no need to care about those Quiet Destruction Wolves. As long as we kill that Chaotic Origin Prisoner, we would have succeeded in a huge task. As for the Quiet Destruction Wolves? Do you think we would lack food once we succeed?”
“Monarch Flying Snow’s soul technique is amazing. The moment you execute it, we immediately hold an absolute advantage.”
After the cultivators saw how miraculous Xue Ying’s technique was, they became confident. Many cultivators even began smiling.
Even though the Quiet Destruction Wolves were working together, the cultivators were also coordinating! Furthermore, their coordination was much better. It was natural they could suppress the large amount of Quiet Destruction Wolves.
“Stop these cultivators.”
Standing behind the group of Quiet Destruction Wolves, the expression on the Chaotic Origin Prisoner became uglier. His eyes were filled with fury as he immediately transmitted down his orders to every protector!
At this moment.
Quiet Icy Mountain Master felt an unprecedented danger. He stared at that white-robed young man ‘Xue Ying’ who stood in between the group of cultivators. At the same time when Xue Ying cast his Illusory Realm technique, given the level of life Quiet Icy Mountain Master as a ‘High-Graded Chaotic Origin Lifeform’ was at, he could easily sense that this enormous Illusory Realm was cast by that white-robed young man.
‘There is actually a cultivator who could significantly weaken the strength of all my protectors in the region?’ Quiet Icy Mountain Master looked as the Quiet Destruction Wolves continued attacking the cultivators unafraid of death, yet they were easily blasted away. He could not help but be anxious, ‘Now that the protectors can’t stop them, what should I do?’
He did not have sufficient time!
His Quiet Destruction Wolves could not stop the cultivators for long. Those cultivators could easily reach up to him in a short time. By then when the cultivators surrounded him, he would most likely die.
‘There is only one way.’ Quiet Icy Mountain Master’s eyes flashed with a vicious light, ‘That is to use all I have to kill that white-robed young man. As long as he dies, my protectors will no longer be weakened. This dangerous predicament would resolve itself naturally. Perhaps I could even wipe out this team of cultivators.’
‘Let me risk it all!’
Quiet Icy Mountain Master made his decision.
Even though he had been assaulted several times before, he had never exerted his full strength before! And this time, he understood right from the start that he had to do so just to fight for that slim chance of survival!
Quiet Icy Mountain Master immediately turned into a stream of light as he charged at the team of cultivators.
The team of cultivators was similarly dashing in his direction.
Xue Ying was completely protected by the team of cultivators. Vice-City Master ‘Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’s true body was even constantly standing by the side of Xue Ying personally guarding him! He was controlling his ‘Nine-Headed Combat Body’ remotely, using it to battle. But Xue Ying knew that this was a killing technique Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor used during normal occasions. It did not show that he was using all his trump cards.
“Hong hong hong.”
Vice-City Master ‘Wu Xiao’s 3,000 silver-white body rushed out as the vanguard. He simply swept away all incoming Quiet Destruction Wolves and parried against Quiet Icy Mountain Master. The other apex cultivators and the ‘Nine-Headed Combat Body’ were as ferocious. They were also attacking Quiet Icy Mountain Master.
Over at the region where the battle happened, it would occasionally be squashed flat like a piece of art.
The group of experts had somehow turned into characters within the art as they battled in it.
The space would also occasionally turn into a Rubik’s Cube, curling into different spatial lattices. Wu Xiao was simply striking out rampantly at every single spatial lattice, rapidly attacking ‘Quiet Icy Mountain Master’. He did not give Quiet Icy Mountain Master any chance of breaking free.
“Scram!” Quiet Icy Mountain Master seemed to have turned mad. He seemed to really want to kill Xue Ying, yet this group of Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeforms were frantically obstructing him.
Quiet Icy Mountain Master was powerful. Any casual punch caused a piece of spatial pocket to explode and shatter. Sending punches over, only Wu Xiao, Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’s ‘Nine-Headed Combat Body’ and Great Emperor Heaven Calamity could directly face those punches without losing out.
“When he battles, all the injuries in his body would show effect.” By the side of Xue Ying, Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor revealed a grin. He casually continued, “The more strength he exerts, the heavier his injuries would be. Over time, his injuries would gradually get more severe, and that is a good thing for us. He can’t fight a lasting battle. You should see, he’ll soon use all his life-saving measures!”
“It seems City-Master Nine-Headed is confident.” Xue Ying transmitted back.
“I can’t say I am certain. But there had been cases of cultivators killing other Chaotic Origin Prisoners in the history of the Sacred World. Hence, we still have some deduction as to when the Chaotic Origin Prisoner would exert his full strength.” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor said, “Previously, we have never pushed Quiet Icy Mountain Master to such a despondent level. Hence, we aren’t too clear what his life-saving measures are. But our overall strength holds an advantage. That is why I feel it is quite hopeful to kill him. All we have to do during the crucial moment… is to protect you! If you were to die, we can only choose to escape.”
As they spoke, Quiet Icy Mountain Master abruptly let out a painful howl.
He started transforming.
Previously, he was still in a humanoid appearance. Accompanied with his painful roars, his body started twitching and squirming, and he soon transformed into a translucent ‘Quiet Destruction Wolf’ that was entirely balck in color. It’s just that his body contained countless golden inscriptions branded on it. Many wounds could be seen on the surface of his body and claws. Golden marks were even inscribed on the withering muscles within those wounds. His bones even had large amounts of golden inscriptions moving, with fractures seen on those bones.
Looking at him, him seemed ‘pitiful’. He was simply a Quiet Destruction Wolf with heavy injuries.
Nonetheless, his aura had become terrifyingly strong! Even though he was being suppressed, the surface of his black skin seemed to vaguely manifest laws from the void lineage.
“He has actually revealed his true body.” Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor transmitted to everyone, “Remain vigilant. He is about to use his life-saving measures.”
“This is the first time we see Quiet Icy Mountain Master in his true body.”
“He is going mad soon.”
“But becoming mad means he is about to die.”
All the cultivators present became more careful.
Xue Ying also wielded his spear in preparation against the distant Quiet Icy Mountain Master. Even though the other party was shackled with many suppressing restrictions marked on his muscles and bones, it was hard for any Chaotic Origin Prisoner to transform back to its original appearance. Because once he transformed back to his original body, it would involve activating many suppressing restrictions placed on him, causing his injuries to become graver. His pain would also reach an unfathomable level.
They were all Innate Chaotic Origin Lifeforms. Only when they transformed back to their true bodies could they exhibit their peak strength.
“Die for me!” Quiet Icy Mountain Master’s eyes were filled with murder. His four hooves trampled on the ground, causing his body to turn blurry. Everywhere he passed would see a sharp void edge cutting through space, cutting through the void and onto every single cultivator.
His current speed was something that even Wu Xiao could not hinder.
Large amounts of sharp void edges… had actually turned all cultivators flustered.
Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’s expression changed, ‘He is actually this powerful when he revealed his true strength?’
‘Combat Body, fuse!’
Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’s eyes flashed with murder.
The nine huge serpents behind him began condensing back their energy, causing the Nine-Headed Combat Body in the distance to dissipate. Furthermore, it caused the entire body of ‘Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’ to grow. At the same time, the Nine-Headed Combat Body started fusing and manifesting on his true body! One had to know that being the expert who reached the deepest and most profound level in ‘Witchcraft’ across all history, he had carefully collected nine essences from the multitude of Chaotic Origin Bloodlines. He had also refined his body past the level of most Grand Perfection God Emperors. With a body that was stronger than average, the moment it fused together with his Nine-Headed Combat Body, this would mark his trump card and strongest killing technique.
“Die for me!” Quiet Icy Mountain Master who had already charged past the obstacles began completely executing his strongest technique.
He was very clear.
After transforming back into his true self, the rate of his injuries worsening started accelerating. He could not fight a prolonged battle. The moment he showed his true body, he would have to execute his strongest killing technique. Either he succeeded in one fell swoop or he would fail and get defeated.
When Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor obstructed the motion of Quiet Icy Mountain Master, suddenly, Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor felt his surroundings becoming abnormally quiet.
It was incomparably silent.
It felt as if all sound had disappeared. Under this absolute silence, even Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor felt a subconscious ‘coldness’ growing in his heart. It was frigid. Even his consciousness was ‘frozen’, slowing his thinking to a snail pace…
‘Not good.’ Xue Ying discovered to his dismay, that ‘Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor’ who was not any weaker than Wu Xiao had somehow slowed down by an entire level. It seemed that he could not obstruct that Quiet Icy Mountain Master who had reached a degree of supreme speed.
Quiet Icy Mountain Master gritted his teeth. A strange water layer floated on the surface of his body. This layer of water covered even his claws.
The moment this layer of water showed up, his speed actually rose by 60%! His body clashed against the void, causing the void to be cut and torn apart. His power had significantly been boosted.
For the sake of killing Xue Ying in one fell swoop, Quiet Icy Mountain Master had used all the techniques he had.
‘This should be sufficient to kill one with the strength of a Grand Perfection God Emperor.’ Quiet Icy Mountain Master thought. When the three City Masters planned to kill a Grand Perfection God Emperor, it would take quite a lot of techniques! And if Quiet Icy Mountain Master planned to succeed, he would naturally have to use all techniques he had.
Xue Ying’s body abruptly expanded. From previously as an elegant and fine prince, he became muscular. His body also grew to about two meters or so. A deep gray light began covering the surface of his body.
“I am also an apex expert.” Xue Ying whirled his spear around, causing stacks of spatial layers to form in defenses against the incoming Quiet Icy Mountain Master. Quiet Icy Mountain Master had a layer of water covering the surface of his body, allowing him to easily knock past the multiple spatial layers. Eventually, he clashed with that spear, forcing Xue Ying to fly backwards instantly. After parrying against it with his spear, that strange force became weaker, leaving just some of it to enter his body. However, his current Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body was sufficiently strong. Xue Ying only spurted out some fresh blood from the strike.
‘What!’ Quiet Icy Mountain Master immediately felt his heart turning cold, ‘This white-robed young man is this strong too?’
With this strength, he was only slightly weaker than Wu Xiao and Nine-Headed Snake Ancestor. How could he kill this white-robed young man in that single instance?
‘I am doomed!’ Quiet Icy Mountain Master understood that this time, he was facing a crisis that he could not escape from.
