Chapter 503 – An Ill Wind
Translator: Radiant Editor: Radiant
Within the Eastern Region City of the Calm Sea Prefecture, there was an extravagant restaurant where an azure-robed man and a gray-robed man were sitting, eating and drinking to their hearts’ content as they looked outside through the window. With how good the vision of a World Deity was, these people could clearly see the front gate of the conspicuous supervisor residence in spite of their large distance from it.
“Sir, Shang Yi has transformed his appearance, changed his name to Bai Li Shang, and entered Xue Ying’s retinue in search of shelter. The investigation has confirmed all of this. What is our next step? Do we search for an opportunity to kill him directly?” the grey-robed man asked. As the two conversed, they simultaneously blocked off forms of probing around them, so they did not fear the possibility of anyone eavesdropping on them.
The azure-robed man looked to the distance with a frown. “Back when the ruins collapsed, a large amount of World Deities scattered in every direction, and we’re not sure which of them ended up with the absolute treasure. Furthermore, everyone in that group was scared back then, and they were are all incredibly cautious and timid. Monarch used up any method he could to find a few of them and, in the end, spared no small cost to conduct an investigation through karma… We’ve found all the others one after another. So far, we’ve searched 355 World Deities, yet the one who hid away the absolute treasure still eludes us. We might have found another World Deity, but who knows whether this Shang Yi guy really has the absolute treasure…”
After the search of so many World Deities ended up in failure, Monarch Cang Yong begun to wonder whether the absolute treasure really was ever hidden within the ruins! However, the large amount of treasures and different evidence he received all pointed to one thing…the ruins contained an important absolute treasure. That was precisely why Monarch Cang Yong had spared no effort or resources to look for each and every World Deity.
“Had he been hiding by himself, we could’ve grabbed him as we wished.” The azure-robed man shook his head. “However, he’s now relying on his connection with Dong Bo! It was long ago that he first sought help, and he’s now one of the commanders of his personal guard. Would Dong Bo really permit us to just grab one of the commanders of his personal guard just like that?”
“What, are you saying Monarch is afraid of Dong Bo?” the gray-robed man couldn’t help but blurt out.
“Hmph! Of course Monarch doesn’t fear Dong Bo. Unless it’s absolutely necessary, however, he’s also unwilling to start a feud.” The azure-robed man shot a glance toward the gray-robed man. “It’s not that simple to provoke Dong Bo. He is the Bloodshed God Emperor’s personal disciple, and he possesses one of those absolute art of legends. I’m afraid that even if I move, I would not necessarily match his power. Not only that—in the future, he will become a terrifying existence that even Monarch would never dare provoke. Once he becomes a stage four World Deity, he is sure to be an overlord amongst all other stage four World Deities.”
The gray-robed man nodded. “What do we do, then?”The gray robed man nodded: “Then what do we do?”
“In the end, we’re talking about Xue Ying’s personal guard; had he been an idle visitor, Xue Ying’s protection would not have been too excessive, but he’s one of the commanders, so he’ll surely try to keep him safe,” the azure-robed man’s voice became cold as he considered his possibilities. “Either way, Monarch has already paid a huge price for the treasure in the ruins. No matter what, we have to check all the World Deities that fled back then to the last, with no exceptions!””In the end it’s a personal guard army, so if he’s an idle visitor, Xue Ying’s protection will not be too excessive. But as a commander of the Personal Guard Army, he surely will protect him.” The azure robed man pondered, and his voice also became cold, “However, Monarch has already paid a huge price for the treasure of the ruins, so no matter what, all the World Deities that fled back then must be sifted through, and not even one can be let off!”
“Mn.” The gray-robed man nodded then suddenly continued, “Look, quickly! Shang Yi has returned to the supervisor residence.”En.” The gray robed man suddenly said, “Quickly look, that Shang Yi has returned to the supervisor residence.
At that moment, Commander Bai Li Shang was flying back from the distance to enter the supervisor residence, followed by a few other soldiers. His expression was relaxed and he seemed to be at ease. After he became a commander of Xue Ying’s personal guard, his days became rather free, seeing now nobody dared to provoke him any longer.Commander Bai Li Shang was now bringing along a few soldiers, flying back mid-air from the distance an entering the Supervisor Residence. His expression was relaxed and at ease. Being able to become Xue Ying’s Personal Guard Army Commander, his days were rather free and easy, and nobody dared come to provoke him.
“That Shang Yi who was known to be rather handsome has unexpectedly took on this ordinary tanned appearance.” The azure-robed man shook his head. “He’s quite cautious.” The World Deities that had fled back then were all cautious, which made Monarch Cang Yong’s search for them very difficult. Ultimately, he had to resort to tracking them through karma, despite the fact that Monarch Cang Yong himself had not grasped the Karma Deity Heart.”Shang Yi was thought of as rather handsome, and unexpectedly has become so ordinary, and so tanned.” The azure robed man shook his head, “He’s quite cautious.” The World Deities that had fled back then were all cautious, therefore Monarch Cang Yong’s search had been very difficult, and ultimately had tracked them through karma, yet Monarch Cang Yong himself hadn’t grasped the Karma Deity Heart.
“Very well, everyone can disperse. I’ll be going into closed-doors cultivation for a period of time, so unless something important comes up, you guys can do as you see fit,” Bai Li Shang gave a casual order then returned to his abode.”Very well, everyone can disperse. I intend to close up for a period of time, so if there’s nothing important you guys do as you see fit.” Bai Li Shang returned to his own abode, and casually commanded.
The soldiers also laughingly dispersed.
As Xue Ying’s power increased, the other parties from throughout the eastern region of the Calm Sea Prefecture all turned extremely obedient, and even those with rather strong backgrounds and connections who would normally hand over a small amount of faith energy had now temporarily put a limit on their greed. As per their words, “The speed at which Xue Ying cultivates is astonishing, and it won’t be long until his power becomes even stronger. By that point, perhaps His Majesty would value him even more, so it’s best not to provoke him during his time as a supervisor envoy.”Because as Xue Ying’s power increased, all parties in the Calm Sea Prefecture Eastern Region were all extremely obedient, and even those with rather strong backgrounds and connections who had handed over less Belief Energy now temporarily did not dare covet too much. Using their words: “The speed that Xue Ying cultivated was astonishing, and in not too long, his power would be even stronger, and perhaps His Majesty the God Emperor would value him more. During his period as a Supervisor, it was better not to provoke him.”
As such, be it Xue Ying’s personal guard, or the supervisor army, they were truly without a care.Therefore whether it was the Personal Guard Army of the Supervisor Army, they were truly very carefree.
“These days are truly carefree.” Bai Li Shang entered his cultivation room where he obscure time and space to block any prying eyes, and finally took out and opened the wooden case. Inside the case was the same black sphere with uneven patterns from before.”These days are truly carefree.” Bai Li Shang soon entered his calm room, obscuring Time and Space, blocking probes, and only after that did his take out and open the wooden case. Within the wooden case was the black sphere with uneven patterns.
Bai Li Shang lightly stroked the black sphere which, in response, slowly lit up, its uneven patterns sending out rays of light to shine in the surrounding space. The complicated three dimensional patterns covering up the whole area were still immeasurably profound—the most complex Bai Li Shang had ever witnessed. Even the formation arrays of the Capital were far from being able to compare with them…
The Black Sphere slowly lit up, the uneven patterns giving off rays of light, and shined in the surrounding space. The complicated three dimensional patterns were still immeasurably profound in the surroundings. The patterns were the most complex that Bai Li Shang had seen in his life. Even the formation arrays of the Capital were far from being able to compare with it.
Monarch Cang staked his life and paid an enormous price, even going as far as to send so many World Deities to die, just to get this! Bai Li Shang caressed the black sphere, as anxiety gathered in his eyes. But what secret do you have? What are you hiding? Is it an absolute art? Is it some fearsome, exotic treasure?”Monarch Cang staked his life, paying such a huge price, letting so many World Deities die, just for you!” Bai Li Shang felt the black sphere, anxiety in his eyes, “But what secret do you have? What do you have? Is it an absolute art? Is it a fearsome and exotic treasure?”
Thirty thousand years…
Over thirty thousand years, Bai Li Shang had thought up all sorts of methods, and all kinds of refining techniques, sensing abilities, even anxiously experimenting with an increasingly large amount of brute force, yet nothing he did managed to disturb the sphere in any way.The thought of all sorts of methods, all kinds of refining methods, sensing methods, and even anxiously experimented with increasingly more brute force, yet could not disturb this black sphere at all.
He was unable to damage it, to disturb it, or to refine it in any way.Just like that, unable to damage, unable to disturb, unable to refine
With the exception of using Deity energy to light up te incomparably profound three-dimensional patterns, nothing else seemed to work.Other than deity energy causing incomparably profound three dimensional patterns to shine, there were no other uses.
I can tell that something isn’t quite right. Bai Li Shang felt himself grow increasingly anxious. But just what am I doing wrong. What secrets do you hide?”I can feel that something isn’t quite right,” Bai Li Shang was anxious, “But just where am I wrong, what secrets do you have?”
The treasure was in his hands, yet he was unable to unravel the profound mysteries inside.The treasure was in hand, yet he was unable to unravel the profound mysteries inside.
Bai Li Shang found himself in a hurry.Bai Li Shang was also hurried.
The supervisor residence only had a few areas in front reserved as abodes for Xue Ying’s personal guard. A much vaster area in the back was left for Xue Ying’s family to use as a cultivation ground.In the Supervisor Residence, it was only a few areas in front which were the abodes of the Personal Guard Army, and the even vaster area in the black was the residence of Xue Ying’s family, a Cultivation Ground.
Xue Ying was sitting cross-legged alone, within a sealed gloomy palace hall deep beneath the ground.Within a gloomy palace hall sealed underground.
Xue Ying sat alone cross-legged.
Hong long long~”Hong Long Long~~~”
Countless scenes appeared all around him depicting the crumbling of the world, the collapse of chaos, and even a faint image of the appearance of an extreme point. These were joined by scenes of flowers and plants wilting, of flying insects and grounded beasts ageing and turning into dessicated bones, as well as fires raging and turning entire forests into ash.Countless scenes appeared around him, the World crumbling, Chaos collapsing, an Extreme Point faintly appearing. There were scenes of flowers and plants wilting, and also scenes of flying insects and legged beasts age and become dessicated bones, as well as scenes of fires raging and turning entire forests into ashes.
Countless scenes had appeared, surrounded by a destructive intent that rippled in a way that could strike fear in most people’s hearts.Countless scenes appeared.
In the surroundings of these scenes there was a destructive intent that rippled and make one fearful.
World, Chaos, and Extremity were the three stages of the Large Destruction aspect pertaining to the laws of the world. Xue Ying unceasingly pursued them as the three strongest killing moves he had at the moment. As his destruction spear techniques were perfected, he could also increase his comprehension of the Extremity Deity Heart.World, Chaos, Extremity, these were the three stages of Large Destruction of the laws of the world. Xue Ying unceasingly pursued the three strongest killing moves of his current self——As his spear techniques ‘Destruction’ became more perfect, he would use this to comprehend the Extremity Deity Heart.
As a young Transcendent, Xue Ying began his comprehension with the True Meaning of Extreme Piercing. But now, he finished his comprehension of the World Deity Heart and the Chaos Deity Heart, while the Extremity Deity Heart still eluded him.When he was young, Xue Ying had first comprehended the ‘True Meaning of Extremity’, and now the World Deity Heart had been comprehended, the Chaos Deity Heart had been comprehended,yet the Extremity Deity Heart was the slowest.
This was because Extreme Piercing and the Extremity Deity Heart were as far apart as the heaven and the earth, and they even followed completely different directions.It was because ‘Extreme Penetration’ and the ‘Extremity Deity Heart’ were as far apart as the heavens, and were even in completely different directions.
While Extreme Penetration walked a path of total extremity, the Extremity Deity Heart itself focused on absolute unification and balance; it was the beginning and end of everything. He had long since understood this point to be true, but of all the beginnings and endings in laws of the world, that incomparably profound one, was very hard to truly grasp. Still, Xue Ying’s focus on his destruction spearmanship over many years, combined with a deep foundation in the direction of Extremity, he had long since touched that upon that separating layer.Extreme Penetration walked the path of the extreme.
Yet the Extremity Deity Heart was an absolute unification, and absolute balance, and the beginning and end of everything. He had long since recognized this point, but all beginnings and endings in Laws of the World, that incomparably profound ‘One’, was very hard to truly grasp. Comprehending spearmanship ‘Destruction’ for many years, as well as having a deep foundation in the direction of Extremity, Xue Ying had long since touched that layer of cloth.
He was separated by what seemed like nothing more than a layer of cloth, yet he still found himself unable to truly breach it.Just separated by a layer of cloth, yet why was he unable to grasp it?
I can feel myself unceasingly approaching it. Xue Ying smiled faintly, and the countless scenes of destruction surrounding him began to dissipate. There’s no hurry. Where water flows, a canal is formed.”I can feel myself unceasingly approach it.” Xue Ying faintly smiled, and the surrounding countless scenes of destruction began to dissipate, “Don’t hurry, where water flows, a canal is formed.”
Then, he got up.
Xue Ying left the underground palace hall, walking upwards along a flight of stairs before eventually arriving at an outer door. Opening it, Xue Ying walked right out. The palace hall which he just left was a secret area Xue Ying used for cultivation and practice. Without his permission, nobody was allowed to enter. Normally, he would only go as far as to bring his son, daughter, and wife inside, giving out pointers to help solve problems his children faced in their cultivation.Xue Ying left this underground palace hall, and walked upwards along a flight of stairs, and soon arrived at the outer door and opened it.

As soon as he walked out, an attendant respectfully called out to him, “Your Majesty, a guest has come over on a visit, and he has already been waiting for two days.”Once he walked out, an attendant respectfully said: “Your Majesty, a guest has come to visit, and has already waited for two days.”
