Chapter 729 – The Only Disciple
Translator: Radiant Translations Editor: Radiant Translations
That gray humanoid suddenly turned taciturn. He was staring at Xue Ying, giving him a thorough look.
Having such an enormous being staring at him made Xue Ying feel uneasy.
“I would never have expected that I, Gu Qi, would actually have a disciple.” The gray humanoid said, “This feeling of having a disciple is certainly peculiar.”
“My name is Gu Qi.”
The incomparably large gray humanoid continued, “This is also my first time accepting a disciple, hence I do not know how to go about teaching one. You already have the protective treasure, and soon, you will be receiving the complete version of the”Walker’s Hidden Secret”. As for your future cultivation, it’ll be up to you. However, the cultivation system of your cosmos studies the Laws and Profound Mysteries. At the later stages, your strength will reach a tremendous level. Thus, I suggest you continue cultivating; don’t give up your current cultivation system.”
Xue Ying obediently nodded.
If talking about the art of combat, their system was indeed mighty. However, they were weaker in other aspects, like their physique. They could not compare with that of the Ancestor Mother Religion, much less the ‘Voidwalker Lineage’. After cultivating just the first level of the Voidwalker Lineage’s “Walker’s Hidden Secret”, Xue Ying could already feel that his strength had surged greatly, and could even match that of apex protectors. Adding the advantage provided by the Laws and Profound Mysteries, he could definitely fight against the Holy Protectors!
And this was merely the first level! If he were to cultivate the subsequent levels, it would even be possible for him to fight against Rulers as a Paragon!
The Voidwalker cultivation system was indeed complimentary with the system of Laws and Profound Mysteries.
“In the future, as you discover other cultivation systems, you can use them as a reference. If you find something more appropriate, you can simultaneously cultivate in multiple systems.” The large humanoid continued its long-winded explanation, “The various cultivation systems were all created by others. However, they all eventually lead to the same destination! Thus, gathering experiences from different systems will be a great aid to you.”
“I do not know how to teach a disciple, and can only give you some pointers.”
“Oh right, your cosmos is created by that old man Tian Yu. Thus, your world belongs to his sect! Currently, his sect is quite formidable. There are two strong beings, Tian Yu and Lake Heart Island Swordmaster, overseeing the sect. In the future, you can definitely rely on them. It is much better than relying on me, this lone ranger.” The colossal humanoid laughed.
Xue Ying understood. This incarnation in front of him should have a link with his true body’s memories. Thus, ‘Forefather Tian Yu’ and ‘Lake Heart Island Swordmaster’ should be on a similar level.
“Tian Yu’s sect is located in the ‘Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World’.” The gray humanoid continued speaking, “Actually, that old chap Tian Yu is quite concerned over you all. He has left behind some guidance for you. Once you are strong enough, you’ll naturally obtain this guidance, and it will point you forward in the Primal Chaos Void towards the distant Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World. As for me, my hometown is located in another sacred world.”
“I’ve participated in a great war that involved the entire sacred world. That great war caused the entire sacred world to be fragmented into several pieces. I was heavily injured, and thus fled into the Primal Chaos Void. In that period of time, I felt that I was at death’s door, and hence I decided to leave an inheritance. But fortunately, I was able to survive through that period of weakness and keep my life.”
“My personality keeps me from settling down in one place, and I drift from places to places. In addition to that, in the previous great war, I formed several blood feuds, and now I’m even more afraid of remaining in a single location.”
“Thus, you should not come and seek me! And do not even tell anyone that you are my disciple! The moment this news spreads, your little life will be gone. Those enemies I have aren’t any weaker than me.”
“If our relationship harms you, and I lose my only disciple, I’ll definitely be very sad, and I won’t know whether I can bring myself to receive another disciple.”
The gray humanoid could not help blurting, “If you truly want to know where I am, find Tian Yu and the Lake Heart Island Swordmaster in the future. You can ask them. They know my whereabouts.”
“Alright. I’m done speaking. Brat, prepare to receive my inheritance.” The gray humanoid looked at Xue Ying. He still could not help but say a few more sentences, “Right now, you haven’t even greeted me as your teacher right? Even though I did not teach you, the “Walker’s Hidden Secret”was created by me. I’ve graced you with the favor of receiving my inheritance, and have even bestowed on you the protection treasure.”
Xue Ying felt awkward.
Truth be told, it was because of the previous trial of ‘refining the Black Gourd’. If he had not passed the trial, he would not have been qualified to obtain the inheritance. Thus, Xue Ying had never recognized himself as the disciple of this senior! And now, he had come here right after refining the gourd. Thus, he did not have time to adjust his thinking.
No matter what, such a powerful senior, the Voidwalker ‘Gu Qi’, took him in as his first disciple. He had graced Xue Ying with such kindness, and was also concerned over his safety. Xue Ying was willing to shout out, “Disciple Dong Bo Xue Ying greets Teacher!”
“Mn, you might have a few teachers so far, but I only have you as my only disciple. Remember, keep everything a secret! Don’t reveal your identity. Your teacher has a great number of inconveniences and is forced to hide all around the universe.” The gray humanoid laughed as he reminded Xue Ying again. Following that, his figure gradually became transparent. On his body, many densely packed silk strands started to appear.
The massive gray humanoid was composed of the many silk strands. In other words, the entire gray humanoid figure was actually an ultra large array diagram! It was so much more complicated than the first level of the”Walker’s Hidden Secret”! It was even more mysterious than the Laws of the material realm, the Sun Star, and the Moon Star.
This was left behind by the oldest creator of the Voidwalker Lineage.
Even ‘Gu Qi’ had only cultivated to the 55th level! Because he was unable to reach the limits, he could not lecture on the Dao. He could only leave behind an incarnation containing a soul strand with the entire “Walker’s Hidden Secret” cultivation technique. Only then could he impart this technique!
The towering gray humanoid was rapidly shrinking, eventually turning into a stream of light that tunneled through the forehead of Xue Ying.
He could only feel the endless rumbling of his consciousness.
Not just his true body, even his avatar lost consciousness at that moment.
He did not know how much time had passed, but Xue Ying eventually quivered and woke up. He hurriedly looked at his True Deity Heart. His current Deity Heart had the appearance of colored glass. The “Walker’s Hidden Secret” had already fused with every single part of his Deity Heart, and he could hardly sense it. When the information was transmitted over, it was only the second level array diagram of the “Walker’s Hidden Secret”. Naturally, since he had succeeded in cultivating the first level, he could continue with the next level! The”Walker’s Hidden Secret” had become one with his soul, and none could snatch it away.
“Mn?” Xue Ying was startled as he looked at the vast world around him. The whole world was gradually crumbling apart. There was just an energy barrier enshrouding him, preventing him from being harmed.
It was like the collapse of a house.
This small-scaled cosmos space was collapsing apart. Many cracks began appearing and spreading. Furthermore, the collapse was getting faster and faster, and eventually, the entire cosmos exploded.
As Xue Ying was protected, he remained uninjured throughout the collapse.
He was surrounded by a starry sky.
‘I am within the territory of the Temporal Island.’ Xue Ying could use karma to detect his own location.
‘Who would have thought that this Voidwalker teacher of mine had participated in a great war, even causing the so-called sacred world to be fragmented. This level is far beyond my current standards.’ Xue Ying sighed inwardly. Even though they did not interact for long, Xue Ying had formed a favorable impression towards this teacher of his.
Throughout his cultivation journey, he had only truly accepted the Bloodshed God-Emperor, Sacred Master Crimson Dust and this Voidwalker ‘Gu Qi’ as his official teachers. Naturally, after becoming a Transcendent, even though Chi Qiu Bai, Gong Yu, and Si Kong Yang gave him some pointers, those pointers were given to a group of Transcendents, and it was unlike formally accepting a teacher.
Amongst the three teachers he had, Bloodshed God-Emperor was unquestionably the closest to him. This Voidwalker Gu Qi was second. Even though they had only interacted for a short period, this great existence, who clearly did not have the experience of teaching a disciple, was quite concerned about his well-being. Instead, it was ‘Sacred Master Crimson Dust’ whom he was the most estranged with, as by the time Xue Ying entered the Crimson Rock Mountain, Sacred Master Crimson Dust was already dead for a long time.
A teacher-disciple relationship was extremely critical for cultivators!
“No matter what, this teacher is still very concerned of me. Furthermore, I am actually his first disciple. I wonder what background his enemies have, for him to strongly insist that I never reveal our relationship, for fear of implicating me.” Xue Ying shook his head. Currently, this matter was beyond his level.
Within the vast palace hall of the Ancestor Mother Religion.
The fanged Religious Leader was seated cross-legged by himself. His eyes were closed, and the sound of his heartbeat reverberated throughout the entire hall, causing the hall to vibrate in reaction.
“Religious Leader, Dong Bo Xue Ying has appeared. He is currently within the territory of the Temporal Island!” A message was transmitted to him.
That heartbeat resounding in the hall disappeared instantly vanished. The fanged Religious Leader opened his eyes. A cold killing intent filled his eyes: “He has finally appeared.”
