A black-robed figure flew out from one of the rolling rivers amidst the void.
“I’m out.” Seeing that void river which was 50 billion kilometers long, Xue Ying felt slightly sorrowful. No matter how he tried sensing using the Mirage World, he could no longer find that hidden world located within the void river!
“You don’t have to look anymore. That time, it was because of the star map that gave you the opportunity to enter. Otherwise, you will never find that world even staying here for an epoch.” The red-undergarment child’s voice sounded in Xue Ying’s mind, “You should think of a way to refine that Black Gourd in a million years. Otherwise, I’ll have to leave.”
“I understand.” Xue Ying slightly frowned as he touched his head.
Many spells of piercing pain were wrecking his head. The black aura had permeated into his true deity heart. That body which was akin to colored glass had a faint black aura within. It was bringing him pain constantly.
“I can only try to expel this black aura over time. It’ll take approximately 10,000 years indeed.” Xue Ying felt the speed of the black aura whittling in his true deity heart before making a judgment.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying, this is merely a counteracting effect. You better not use it a second time before you fully recovered. That counteracting effect will only add up and become serious. Your soul could collapse once it reaches its limit.” The red-undergarment child reminded him.
“You are quite impressive. I’ve kept you in my Cultivation Eden yet you could still transmit your voice to me.” Xue Ying chuckled as he transmitted back.
He was feeling pain constantly. However, he had experienced the torture of the Six Ghost Resentment Hex Poison when he was young; thus, he could still laugh at this moment.
“Hmph, it is only a Cultivation Eden. It could not restrict me at all. Even the famous places in your cosmos like the Lake Heart Island and Six Heavenly Wheel do not restrict me. I can enter any time and leave any time.” The red-undergarment child was unbelievably confident of himself, “If you don’t refine me in a million years, no matter where you hide me or whoever helps you, I’ll still leave easily.”
“I believe you.” Xue Ying chuckled without saying much.
He believed in not the treasure spirit but that Voidwalker. He was someone who could trap a presence on the same level as ‘Sun Star’ into the Black Gourd and turn it into a protective treasure. Such means sufficed to make Xue Ying regard him with respect! After all, the legends had spoken how the strongest experts in this cosmos-Lake Heart Island master and Ancestor Devil remained helpless in front of the Sun Star and Moon Star.
Xue Ying waved his hand and tore a time-space tunnel out. He stepped on it before returning home.
Within the Monarch Residence on the Black Fog Sea land.
“Mn?” Xue Ying appeared in the sky. He was able to cover the entire residence with his senses quickly. He had also gone seeking his wife, Jing Qiu, yet at that moment, he discovered an ‘old friend’ of his.
Xue Ying was surprised.
That time in the Xia Clan World, the Sorcerer God and Great Demonic God wanted to start a war and conquer the entire Xia Clan world behind the scenes to conquer the Cultivation Eden ‘Crimson Rock Mountain’. At that time, there were many coveting the treasures left behind by the powerful existence ‘Sacred Master Crimson Dust’ within the Crimson Rock Mountain. Some World Deities had sent peak Demigods into the Xia Clan World.
There were Lord You Lan, Wu Ma Hai, Chen Jiu, Jian Huang and Meishan Clan Master. All of them proceeded to the Crimson Rock Mountain. Xue Ying was inflicted with the hex poison at that time and had pledged his life in search for an opportunity to live in the Crimson Rock Mountain.
Within the Crimson Rock Mountain, he had been in the same team as Chen Jiu. They experienced life and death together and were very close to each other.
Within the courtyard.
There were several cups of tea placed on the table. The fragrance of the tea was diffusing out. A light-blue-robed Jing Qiu sat cross-legged on the grass. Her hair that was like silk draped across her shoulder. The True God weapon divine sword was placed on her legs as she tried sensing the mysterious ‘Dao’ within it.
“Hu.” Xue Ying appeared by her side. He looked at his wife as she cultivated, and could not help but reveal a grin. However, shortly after that, he felt his heart tightening.
His wife was different from him.
His wife was the eldest daughter of Monarch Mo Xue. She had cultivated for a very long time in her previous life. Even though she awoke her memories after reincarnating, and the memories from the two different lives collided and allowed her to become a stage four World Deity, despite having some slight improvements, she was much slower in advancement as compared to Xue Ying, Chi Qiu Bai, and others. Xue Ying was trying his best yet his wife was improving very slowly.
Xue Ying had always been worried that his wife might not transcend!
Transcending was a breakthrough which none could help. Even Voidwalker with his great power could not help his good friend. He could only produce some external aids. Nonetheless, one still had to comprehend it and depend on oneself to transcend!
‘Jing Qiu.’ Xue Ying muttered inwardly.
Some stage four World Deities would decide to reincarnate when their true deity hearts were close to crumbling apart! After reincarnating, they would have the memories of a different person, and it would clear their heart realm. But once the memories from the previous life fuse together as one… most could live for a short period of around three to five billion years and even as short as a billion years. It was impossible for them to be like Xue Ying and Chi Qiu Bai who had an abundance of time to cultivate.
‘Regardless what, I will do my best.’ Xue Ying temporarily hurled those thoughts to the back of his mind. He was still optimistic. As long as he treasured the time together, it was fine. Nothing could ever be perfect in this world.
Jing Qiu opened her eyes as she felt something. She looked to her side. When she saw the most important man in her life, she could not help but smile: “Xue Ying, you’re back. Previously, you still said you are going in closed-door cultivation and that I should not disturb you if there is nothing important. How is it? Did you gain anything?”
“There is.” Xue Ying chuckled, “And it is quite big.”
It was true that he gained quite a lot this time around.
He got a treasure that gave him the power to match Rulers. It’s a pity that he had yet to refine it, and could only utilize it once every 10,000 years.
“Oh right, Jing Qiu, I discovered that Brother Chen Jiu is also in the residence?” Xue Ying asked with slight surprise.
“He has just come for half a year.” Jing Qiu kept her divine sword and stood up: “He is here to visit you. Originally when he discovered that you aren’t around, he wanted to leave. I know that you are exceptionally close with him, and has harped on to him many times. That was how I made him stay here.”
“Mn.” Xue Ying nodded, “You’ve done right.”
His rise after leaving the Xia Clan World for the Deity world had been rapid.
After accepting the God Emperor as his teacher, he soon became a stage four World Deity, and then opened two Daos. Now, he was one of the three ancestors. He had been investigating those good friends of his a long time ago, especially on Chen Jiu, Meishan Clan Master, and Jian Huang.
The differences in their power were too significant.
Xue Ying did not know what they could talk about. Purely reminiscing the past? That would only make things awkward between them.
Thus, he could only help them in the dark, especially so when Meishan Clan Master and the others were Reincarnators from the ‘Temporal Temple’. Even if he were to help, he could only be careful in doing so.
‘Brother Chen Jiu has finally become a World Deity.’ Xue Ying understood the reason why Chen Jiu had not come to meet him despite his reputation.
In the past, Chen Jiu was one of the many Deities in the vast Deity world. Thus, he had never come visiting him.
And now, he had broken through to become a World Deity.
World Deities-there were relatively fewer of them. One could count the number of World Deities with one’s fingers in every single starfield. Their lifespan would usually reach tens of billion years. Chen jiu’s heart realm was different now. That was why he could come and visit him calmly.
“Jing Qiu, I’ll meet up with Brother Chen Jiu first. After that, I have a matter which I have to talk to you.” Xue Ying said.
“You should hurry and meet your good brother. We have plenty of time to talk.” Jing Qiu giggled as she urged Xue Ying.
Xue Ying took a step before disappearing. It was time to meet that good brother of his which he had never met for close to ten million years already.
