Chapter 654 – Four Protectors
Translator: Radiant Translations Editor: Radiant Translations
Even though he discovered the four protectors from the Ancestor Mother Religion, he acted as if he did not find them. The expression on Xue Ying had been carefully maintained as he kept all aura to the extent of where even light and sound around him was isolated. He could not be seen just by using the naked eyes alone, though the Ancestor Mother Religion protectors would have other methods of ‘investigating’ him.
Xue Ying carefully inspected the ‘Ancient Demon’ in front of him before beginning to fly far away.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying is out.” Protector Huo Zhu revealed a cruel smile, “I still thought he will never come out forever. We have waited for more than 6,000 years, and it feels truly bitter.”
“Cheng Yun has died, and the medicine which we refined has become useless. Everything is because of him.” The gray-robed female protector was also revealing light in both her eyes. If it were her usual cultivation, one million years would seem just like a flash. However, waiting so bitterly like this was much more tiring for they had to pay close notice of their surroundings! Nobody knew when Xue Ying would come out. As long as they were careless, and did not discover Xue Ying, he would just escape far away, leaving the Six Heavenly Wheel and by then, it would be too late for regrets.
After leaving the Six Heavenly Wheel, those of the Ancestor Mother Religion could only carefully hide. Who would dare to openly slaughter others?
“We have waited for more than 6,000 years. Let us grant him death.” The blue-eyed male’s killing intent condensed.
“Everything will be done according to our previous plan.” The violet-robed old man who had just an eye revealed said.
“We have prepared amply, bringing even the Religion Sacred Weapons. He is dead for certain.” The blue-eyed male added.
Following which, under a sound of command by Protector Huo Zhe, a fiery rainbow light enveloped around the four of them before flying towards the direction of Xue Ying.
Even though he had already erupted with speed brought about by the fifth volume of “Luminous Sun” and the fifth level of “Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body”, the speed of that fiery rainbow light was far beyond his speed. It was so fast that it made Xue Ying tongue-tied!
Their distances were still very far apart.
After an hour of flying, Xue Ying turned back, only to see the Ancient Demon still sleeping behind, ‘Flying like this is truly slow-only tens of billions of kilometers an hour. If I borrowed upon the Mirage World to tear through the void, I could travel more than a hundred billion kilometers with a single thought.’
The fiery rainbow light that was pursuing him flew at an even faster speed reducing their distance to about 50 billion kilometers.
‘Still not striking? They are really patient.’ Xue Ying thought.
He had long discovered them, though he was acting as if he had not.
After all, the other party’s method of hiding was genuinely profound. If not for the Mirage World, he would not discover them.
Another half an hour passed.
The gap between the two had shortened to just a few hundred million kilometers. This little distance to those at their level was indeed remarkably close. Yet the other party was still not striking. Xue Ying could only continue pretending as he flew.
“This cultivator called Dong Bo Xue Ying is truly too immature. Big Brother Huo Zhe has isolated all our movement, ensuring that he can’t sense us at all.” The gray-robed female protector sneered.
“Prepare to strike.”
The crimson-skinned tall and sturdy hunk, ‘Protector Huo Zhe’ flipped his hand, causing a simple looking circular stone plate to appear. This stone plate had many circles of patterns on it. Then, the plate began emitting many undulations that started spreading in all directions…
‘They finally strike.’ Xue Ying felt elated, yet he put on a look of shock as he looked around frantically. The world began changing as many undulations started covering the entire place of 50 billion kilometers in range. This 50 billion kilometers in range rapidly formed an isolated world that contained mountains and rivers within.
In the distant, four entirely different auras belonging to the protectors of the Ancestor Mother Religion appeared. Their eyes were cold. Some were filled with excitement and killing intent while some were filled with absolute coldness.
“Protectors of the Ancestor Mother Religion?” Xue Ying announced, “Who would have thought that four protectors are dispatched to deal against me. You all are truly thinking highly of me.”
“How would we dare to underestimate you?” The distant gray-robed female protector coldly said, “I’ve heard that you have a method for escaping that is more formidable than the Rulers. You should utilize it again so that we can have a look. Otherwise, you can’t blame anyone for dying.”
Xue Ying went silent.
The confidence in the hearts of the four protectors grew.
They actually made their judgment in advance. Those heaven-shattering methods that could hide even his karma-Bloodshed God Emperor and Temporal Island Lord could not do so-to them, they were confident that it was absolutely not Xue Ying’s power. Instead, it should be some precious treasure’s power. And such a heaven-shattering treasure could not frequently be used.
There should be some limitations! For instance, some heavenly-shattering treasure would rapidly increase the karma influence, or erode the true deity heart…
Regardless, everything was fair.
The more heaven-defiant the treasure was, the higher the tribute required.
“Such heaven-defiant treasure is one Dong Bo Xue Ying could not use within the short period of time! At the same time, he should not dare to bring it into the Six Heavenly Wheel since he would lose his treasure after his death, and that will be a huge loss for him.” The protectors of the Ancestor Mother Religion had long made their judgment about this. Furthermore, they could confirm it by his reactions.
“Hmph hmph, escape?” Xue Ying sneered, “You all already have a protector dying in my hands. Just relying on you all and you think I should escape? But your courage is quite huge to dare to deal against me right by the side of the Ancient Demon.”
“The surrounding world has completely been sealed. You can’t leave it at all. Even if you want to escape, you can’t do so. As for the Ancient Demon, since the outside world will not be affected by our battle, we do not need to care about it. Thus, you are dead for certain.” Protector Huo Zhe’s voice was determined. The moment he finished speaking, a huge green wooden pole appeared. It began elongating explosively.
Protector Huo Zhe held onto the huge wooden pole, waving it across the sky. With the laws of profound mysteries utilized, it made Xue Ying shake his head inwardly because it was honestly too crude. But the speed and power had far surpassed that of the previous Protector Cheng Yun.
“Hong long long~” The wooden rod arced through the sky, suppressing the space around and causing this isolated world to tremble. Clearly, the power of that wooden pole had far surpassed the limit of this 50 billion kilometers world, causing cracks to form in many areas.
Xue Ying who fought with Protector Cheng Yun was clear that this move was one he could not block. He would definitely be injured.
But regardless, Xue Ying still brought out the Blood Serpent Spear to defend against it with his utmost strength.
During that moment when the wooden pole and the spear clashed, even though the technique used in defending was profound, causing only 10% of the incoming force to transmit across the spear to his body, it had bombarded Xue Ying to the extent that he flew backwards, smashing down against the earth and forming a massive gouge.
Closely following that…
Xue Ying flew out once again up to the sky.
‘This Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body armor of mine is solid.’ Xue Ying wasn’t injured at all, ‘The fourth level of Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body could withstand a move by White Sovereign King. Even though the strength of White Sovereign King is not as great as this protector, he is an apex Paragon with a much greater realm. And now, I’ve cultivated the fifth level of the Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body, allowing my defenses to improve further. According to the what absolute art described, Paragons can’t kill me at all, and could only injure me! This protector of the Ancestor Mother Religion might be strong, but my armor is able to withstand against his attacks.’
Borrowing his weapon to receive an attack, he understood the limits of the other party’s combat power.
Even though it completely suppressed him, he would not die!
“You all should receive a few moves by me too.” Xue Ying waved the Blood Serpent Spear in his hand across the sky, causing it to expand. He began his counterattack, piercing right against Protector Huo Zhe.
Protector Huo Zhe waved his wooden rod out once again from a distance. He proceeded on with a frenzied attack.
The queer and unpredictable Blood Serpent Spear did not parry against the wooden pole. Instead, it pierced right towards the body of Protector Huo Zhe, causing him to frown. His left hand extended out against this spear, yet this spear was just like a snake, slithering unpredictability with rotation. He did not know how but the left hand of Protector Huo Zhe had grabbed nothing yet the spear landed on his body.
“Pu~” The Blood Serpent Spear directly pierced towards this Protector Huo Zhe. Yet there was an unseen obstruction force which obstructed this attack, causing the might of that spear to rapidly decrease. At the moment when the spear reached his body, there was only 30% of the force left!
Piercing against his body was just like stabbing against a tough leather. Protector Huo Zhe’s outer crimson skin had just formed a white spot, with his skin remaining unbroken!
‘The strength of this body.’ Xue Ying was speechless. He had an armor, yet the other party parried against his attack just with his skin, ‘This protector is too strong. I can’t kill him no matter what.’
He immediately understood.
Of the four protectors, he was sure he could not kill this one with his current abilities.
