The thick-gowned Senior Disciple Brother Ge Bai looked toward the luxuriant Starfield Flying Ship flying through the void in front of him, his eyes brightening up as he laughed. “This ship looks rather extraordinary. Its price should be no less than a hundred million Deity crystals! Old Seven, us two couldn’t afford this ship even if we pawned off all our treasures.”
The scarlet-cloaked He Fei Yun remained as cold as ever. He replied through pursed lips, “Junior Disciple Brother Dong Bo is now His Majesty’s personal disciple, and five thousand years ago, he was already a stage two World Deity. There’s no point in being envious of him.”
Watching this, the white-robed Xue Ying turned around and left.
He disappeared, having returned directly into the material world.
It was very simple to go back to the material world from the Deity world…such was the case for Realm Lords only, of course! With a single thought, he could send a displacement order to the Xia Clan world, causing the Xia Clan world to attract him back! In most cases, he would be sent back in the blink of an eye. This time, however, an accident occurred.
What’s this? The white-robed Xue Ying looked at the blurry space passage around him as a mighty power descended to envelop him.
The will of the material world! Xue Ying immediately understood.
The Xia Clan World, like every other mortal world, had its own set of laws of operation. It had the ability to expel outsiders and encompass the natives.
As a group, the countless mortal worlds constituted the material world. Its law was even stricter than that of a mortal world, and it had some more fundamental capabilities. This law was known as the will of the material world! Just like the Dark Abyss which had its own will of the abyss, anyone would have to respect the will of the material world when living in it.
The power of the material world was now directed toward Crimson Rock Mountain, which Xue Ying had brought along.
Release the seals on the Crimson Rock Mountain… Once the material world transmitted its will over, Xue Ying understood that, if he did not follow the laws the material world set down, it would most likely expel him as a Realm Lord without hesitation! Straightaway, Xue Ying obediently released the seals, allowing the material world’s power to permeate Crimson Rock Mountain.
Before long, two figures were thrown straight out of Crimson Rock Mountain and then out of the material world.
With the exception of the Realm Lord, it is forbidden for World Deities to enter the material world. With those words, the power of the material world retreated.
Dong Bo Yu, Qing Yao, Xi Wei, Ge Bai and He Fei Yun were now situated in the starry sky of the Deity world, when two more figures suddenly appeared beside them. They were also figures of He Fei Yun and Ge Bai, but in a more sorry state.
The Starfield Flying Ship had already stopped in its tracks.
“Junior Disciple Brother Dong Bo, why did you throw us out?”
“What’s wrong? I was still in closed-doors cultivation when I was thrown out without any warning.” The two figures of He Fei Yun as well as the two figures of Ge Bai were staring straight at Xue Ying and Jing Qiu, who had just left the Starfield Flying Ship. Both senior disciple brothers of his had cultivated avatar techniques.
Dong Bo Yu and Qing Yao both shouted out.
Xue Ying gave a nod toward his children with a smile before turning toward Ge Bai and He Fei Yun and helplessly replying, “Senior Disciple Brothers, I was not the one to throw you out here. The will of the material world is responsible for having thrown you two out! The laws of the material world…stipulate that a Realm Lord’s cultivation eden treasures are forbidden from carrying World Deities within. I’ve only recently found out as well.”
“Ah.” The thick-gowned Ge Bai was stunned. “I thought there would be no issue with leaving an avatar within.”
“Back when our teacher, Crimson Dust, threw out Crimson Rock Mountain, the treasure entered the Xia Clan World without a master,” Xue Ying began. “Because of that, the material world power was unable to forcibly enter the inner regions of Crimson Rock Mountain, so the two of you were allowed to remain inside. But now that I refined Crimson Rock Mountain and carried Crimson Rock Mountain into the material world, the will of the material world descended to investigate Crimson Rock Mountain. I guess this will now be happening whenever I try to bring a cultivation eden treasure into the material world.”
“What are we supposed to do, then?” Ge Bai and He Fei Yun looked at each other.
“We could cultivate in an time-accelerated environment inside Crimson Rock Mountain, but the outside world does not have the same conditions.” Ge Bai sighed. “Whatever. It’s out of our control. It’s not like we could remain stuck inside Crimson Rock Mountain forever.”
Crimson Rock Mountain was a cultivation eden, and it contained precious cultivation rooms which could accelerate time. They could also generate various experimental environments, which were helpful to the two.
In the past, both Ge Bai and He Fei Yun would cultivate inside Crimson Rock Mountain using both their true bodies and avatars. This was because they still held onto a strand of hope that they could become stage three World Deities.
“Then what do you two Senior Disciple Brothers plan to do now?” Xue Ying laughed. “You are here in both true body and avatar form. How about following me to Eastern Region City?”
“I’m fine with that.” He Fei Yun nodded.
“Since both my bodies are now out, I can send one back to my old hometown, and the other can follow you, Junior Disciple Brother Dong Bo.” Ge Bai caressed his lower chin before joking, “However, I will require your help with some of the materials we need for researching arrays, Junior Disciple Brother.”
“A minor matter.” Xue Ying laughed. “Let’s go, then. Once we’re back on the flying ship, we can leave for Eastern Region City.”
Seeing how he was put in charge of four thousand personal guards, every year, the Bloodshed God Palace would give him enough of a salary to also take care of the resources his two Senior Brothers would require for their cultivation.
Eastern Region City of the Calm Sea Prefecture was incredible in terms of size. The many planets around it were nothing more than decoration to it. A few billion kilometers long winding river meandered through the starry sky, flowing in a circle around the entire city.
In fact, when considering size, within the entire Calm Sea Prefecture, Eastern Region City was second only to the capital itself! It was comparable to the other three regional cities.
On that day, a great many soldiers were standing orderly in rows by the entrance of Eastern Region City. To the front of this group could be seen various World Deities, and even a total of eight stage three World Deities! As for stage two World Deities, around a hundred of them were currently standing in an orderly fashion.
“Almost all the superpowers of the Calm Sea Prefecture Eastern Region have gathered here today.” The group was led by a white-robed middle-aged man who chuckled at the sight. “This supervisor envoy of ours is truly very famous. I remember that, back when I took up the same position, only half of the people present here welcomed me. Hahaha…I’m not trying to complain or anything. All I’m saying is that this supervisor envoy, His Highness Dong Bo, is a personal disciple under His Majesty, and he has a rank three official position. In the Calm Sea Prefecture, only the prefecture head himself has a higher position than him. Even I would have to lower my head in front of him.”
“General Mo, there are only eight stage three World Deities here! There’s actually one missing.” A muscular cow-headed male laughed from the side.
“Indeed, there’s one person who’s not attending. That person is quite a proud and lofty figure, seeing how she refused to come.” An enchanting woman holding onto a fan giggled.
“She has some huge enmity with His Highness, Dong Bo. I thought she would at least come here to try and resolve it, but who would have thought that she would now show up at all.”
“I wonder how that Little Sister Venomous Ying reacted upon finding out that His Highness Dong Bo was accepted as His Majesty’s personal disciple, and that he even became a stage two World Deity within just five thousand years.”
The stage three World Deities were all chatting and laughing amongst themselves.
Currently, regardless of whether they were in closed-doors cultivation or had gone out on adventures, almost all the stage three World Deities had rushed here from throughout the entire Eastern Region of the Calm Sea Prefecture, and it was just to welcome Xue Ying! That is, all except for one—the Venomous Ying World Deity! A long time had passed since she created enmity with Xue Ying, and the various superpowers from this Eastern Region were all wondering as to whether the Venomous Ying World Deity would show up or not. And, in the case that she did show up, would His Highness Dong Bo even show her any respect? Even then, everyone could guess from the fact that Venomous Ying World Deity had wanted to snatch away Jing Qiu and trample on Xue Ying himself for the sake of her nephew, that ‘His Highness Dong Bo’ would never forgo such humiliation, especially considering his current identity.
In the end, it seemed as if the Venomous Ying World Deity had decided to just not show herself!
“His Highness is here.”
At the moment, the many World Deities were all looking into the distance, where a huge emerald ship could be seen flying over through the starry sky. It had left through a spacetime passage, suppressing the surrounding airflow to rapidly arrive at its destination. Standing at the helm of that huge ship were several human figures.
