Within the time-space tunnel.
"This time, it is all thanks to Big Brother Huo Cheng. If not for big brother around, the Two Saints Ink Clan will not lower their heads so easily." Xue Ying said.
"I have merely been present without acting." Paragon Huo Cheng laughed as he mentioned, "But Dong Bo, your combat power is not bad–you could even fight evenly with Leaf Saint. I believe that the moment this news is spread, the powerful existences in the Deity world and Abyss will all have a big shock. My teacher might even change the Cosmos Deity-Demon List again."
Xue Ying laughed.
The Primal Master updated the Cosmos Deity-Demon List whenever he wanted. Sometimes, he might delay for a long time because of particular reasons like entering closed-door cultivation.
"The ranking of combat power is a minor matter." Xue Ying said, "To me, what is more important is to transcend."
"Adding up, you should have lived for more than one million years now." Paragon Huo Cheng said, "With your comprehension talent, you should be able to transcend soon enough."
"My teacher has mentioned this too." Xue Ying shook his head, "If only everything is smooth, then naturally, I'll be able to transcend after a flash of enlightenment. But now, I find that I lack that final step."
Paragon Huo Cheng nodded, "Rushing is pointless. But this time, I can see from your actions that the foundation of your realm is thick enough, and your spear techniques should be considered to be top even amongst the powerful existences."
Xue Ying laughed.
He asked himself and knew that the five secret skills he created were powerful enough. He had the qualifications of being the strongest beneath Paragons.
"You have comprehended all nine Deity Hearts, and your foundation is thick enough. Coupled with your good comprehension ability." Paragon Huo Cheng added, "You have done well in your preparations. The moment you say breakthrough, you will break through. I think you should go out and have a walk and travel around the world. You will meet different things that could give you different stimulation. Who knows, you could transcend after that?"
"Mn." Xue Ying nodded, "I have this thought too."
"Hahaha… then I'll have to congratulate you beforehand. The moment you transcend, we brothers will be brothers for eternal." Paragon Huo Cheng laughed before turning around and look afar, "We will be reaching the Black Fog Sea soon. From how I see, there is no need for me to visit your Black Fog Sea. By then, seeing that Forefather Scarlet Flame, I'll feel even more embarrassed."
Xue Ying was startled momentarily before nodding.
Even though this matter ended with him taking back the Sun Star Nucleus stone, Forefather Scarlet Flame would still feel guilty and anguished in his heart.
After Xue Ying parted with Paragon Huo Cheng, he descended in the Black Fog Sea Monarch Residence.
Within the residence.
Xue Ying saw Jing Qiu, Dong Bo Yu and Forefather Scarlet Flame who had been waiting all along.
"Hu." Xue Ying landed.
"Father, why did you return so quickly? What happened?" Dong Bo Yu hurriedly asked. A smile appeared on Jing Qiu's expression too, and Forefather Scarlet Flame's appearance turned complex.
Xue Ying laughed before throwing the Sun Star Nucleus Stone over to Forefather Scarlet Flame.
Forefather Scarlet Flame finally let out a breath of relief the moment he saw the Sun Star Nucleus Stone. If Xue Ying did not take back the stone, how would he account for the Ripple Lady Planet Master in the future? If he let Xue Ying get into such predicament, or that he was forced to do specific tasks, Forefather Scarlet Flame would have no way of forgiving himself.
"Xue Ying." Forefather Scarlet Flame walked to the side of Xue Ying, placing the Sun Star Nucleus Stone back in the hands of Xue Ying, "You keep it."
"This…" Xue Ying was stunned.
"You should keep this. I feel nervous when I hold it." Forefather Scarlet Flame shook his head, "You can take it back this time, but should I let you take it back again if I met another issue in the future?"
Xue Ying added, "Bamboo Saint will not dare to do it anymore."
"He dares not, but what about other powerful existences?" Forefather Scarlet Flame rejected it, "I've used karma to sense that one of the bodies of Bamboo Saint has died. This time, the disturbance created is so huge, and most likely, it should spread across the entire Deity world and Abyss. By then, the matter about me having this piece of Sun Star Nucleus Stone will most likely be dug out by them."
Xue Ying lightly nodded.
The previous battle had created a considerable amount of disturbances since it involved the entire Ink Bamboo Great Land. The Ink Bamboo Great Land's Bamboo Saint had many subordinates too, and those subordinates would most likely be telling their good friends about the massive battle. The Temporal Island could similarly understand what happened via time-space since no isolation treasure was able to hide such a fight happening in a vast area. This battle would likely be made known to the world.
"This, it isn't appropriate for me to hold this Sun Star Nucleus Stone anymore. I do not want to bring it along too." Forefather Scarlet Flame shook his head, "This matter is my mistake right from the start. For the sake of cultivation, I have thickened my face to ask you for help. Actually, I believe this is a huge pressure for you too. If it is any ordinary powerful existences, you can reject them, but you have put in so much effort to help me complete this task."
"I created the trouble, and I requested for you to help me solve it too."
"And in the future, if others attacked me, am I going to let you act again? I'm afraid those who dare to act will most likely be confident, and it might be a Paragon expert instead." Forefather Scarlet Flame shook his head, "I don't feel safe in my heart. Holding on to the treasure, yet I can't calm my heart enough to cultivate. Thus, I would rather not take it."
Forefather Scarlet Flame looked towards Xue Ying, "You should understand my meaning."
"I understand." Xue Ying nodded.
"Alright. There's no need for me to cultivate at the Sun Star either way. I can go visit other historical remains." Forefather Scarlet Flame said, "Xue Ying, then I'll not stay here any longer. You don't have to send me off."
"Wait a moment." Xue Ying added, "Forefather, your Cultivation Eden, and other weapons should be still with Bamboo Saint right?"
Forefather Scarlet Flame was startled for a moment before nodding.
The first time when he was attacked, all treasures carried by his avatar on the Sun Star were stolen.
Xue Ying laughed as he waved his hand. At the same time, many treasures began appearing, of which there was a unique-looking wooden stick. It was the well-known weapon belonging to Forefather Scarlet Flame according to the intelligence reports.
"Then I'll not be polite." Forefather Scarlet Flame revealed a happy look as he took back his own Blood Refined Deity Warrior and other treasures.
Forefather Scarlet Flame left in a casual, straightforward manner.
The Sun Star Nucleus Stone had been a psychological burden to him.
And everything was as expected. Just three hours after Xue Ying returned to the Black Fog Sea, the external world began spreading the news on the massive battle. Many of the powerful existences could quickly reverse the time flow to view the fight.
"Dong Bo Xue Ying has killed his way with extreme anger into the Two Saints Ink Clan, and in a move, he destroyed the entire clan protection array covering the Ink Bamboo Great Land. Bamboo Saint did not escape and had directly been killed in battle."
"Bamboo Saint himself has let out information saying that Dong Bo Xue Ying owns a True God weapon. Otherwise, he could not escape."
"One on one and he killed Bamboo Saint?"
"Bamboo Saint is an existence close to that of a Paragon."
"Dong Bo Xue Ying has fought with Leaf Saint too without anyone suppressing the other."
All sorts of news were spread.
Especially so for some of the veteran stage four World Deities and the powerful existences–the story was spreading even faster! Even Paragons and Rulers knew of this matter since the stronger their combat power, the clearer they understood that this battle outcome by Xue Ying was not something easily achievable.
In the Deity world.
Within the void, there was a chain of mountains. On one of the tallest one, there was currently a figure seated cross-legged on the mountain peak.
This figure was seated on a piece of enormous rock. He was wearing broken-looking clothes, and his hair was messy. He was barefooted, and he just seemed as if a beggar. But as he opened his eyes, nobody would treat him like one. His eyes were warm and were not tyrannical at all. Instead, it was filled with majesty, displaying strength and discipline. Naturally, it would cause others to feel that he seemed as if the ruler of this world.
He was none other than Monarch Green.
One who was apparently a Paragon yet he could fight against Rulers.
'This junior disciple of mine has been improving quickly'" Monarch Green chuckled, 'Indeed, he is the one who broke the record of becoming a stage three World Deity. Previously, the one who broke the record has died, leaving behind I and Temporal Island Lord. I wonder how far will this junior disciple walk to.'
'He has cultivated for more than a million years now and should most likely be transcending soon.' Monarch Green mumbled. He felt this was something expected for with Xue Ying's comprehension ability, and the lack of implication from vast karma, he should be able to transcend easily.
