Chapter 1272: Life on the Line
Translator: CKtalon Editor: CKtalon
These disciples had been recruited into the Myriad God Ridge over centuries, if not more than a thousand years. Due to the long period of time, they had gone from being disciples to stewards or guardians. Then, as more time went on, they were sent away to complete missions or lead secluded lives. As they were lacking in talent and so few in numbers, the other Myriad God Ridge disciples barely paid them any attention.
No one expected that these disciples had actually had their vitality sealed in preparation to be used as ingredients for today’s alchemy!
"They’re just a few catalyst herbs with impure bloodlines. It will just increase the chance of success." The red-dressed boy said nonchalantly. He did not seem to care too much about these new catalyst herbs.
In fact, he was more interested in Yi Yun and Snake Girl. Especially Yi Yun, a person who had once stirred the Ascending Dragon Cauldron. The red-dressed boy looked forward to how Yi Yun could give him a pleasant surprise in the modifications to the Dragon Emperor Relic.
"Do you want to enter by yourself, or do you want me to escort you in?"
The red-dressed boy looked at Yi Yun as the corners of his mouth curled.
"Fuck off, you bastard!" Yi Yun roared and suddenly attacked.
He had already been accumulating power this whole time. Even though he knew he was not the undying old fart's match, it did not mean that he would sit idle and die. Even in death, he wanted to rip off some flesh.
"Wu Wu Wu!"
A black wheel appeared out of thin air behind Yi Yun. It spun crazily. The wheel had demonic and divine phantoms carved into it. It was none other than Yi Yun's 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence!
The Major Destruction laws were the strongest laws Yi Yun knew. Likewise, the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence was Yi Yun's strongest move.
The Destruction laws blasted out, forming a Destruction Dao Domain that enveloped everything. The red-dressed boy was at the center of the domain, his aged but prepubescent face revealing a look of surprise.
"Such a move…"
The intriguing Destruction laws exceeded the red-dressed boy's expectations but the gap in cultivation levels was impossible to bridge!
Yi Yun was only at the fifth-storey Dao Palace realm. Above the Dao Palace realm was Supremacy, and above Supremacy was Divine Lord. Most Divine Lords did not fuse with a divine seal. Those that fused with a divine seal, like Azure Yang Lord or Felicitous Rain Lord, were even stronger. As for the Myriad God Patriarch, he was even stronger than Felicitous Rain Lord.
Ignoring the Myriad God Patriarch, Yi Yun wasn't even the match of experts above the mid-stage Supremacy realm. The gap was just too huge.
The red-dressed boy attacked, pushing his palm forward. It was not an eye-catching strike but after it was produced, his palm seemed to gather a surging blood-colored ocean!
Infinite energy seemed to blast out, as all the laws in the world were guided by the Myriad God Patriarch's strike.
The blood-red sea waves roared, directly engulfing Yi Yun's Destruction Dao Domain!
Yi Yun's Destruction Dao Domain was extremely robust and managed to hold against the blood sea. But due to the huge difference in strength, the Destruction Dao Domain was completely inundated, making it look like a lone boat in the middle of a massive ocean.
All Yi Yun could feel was a terrifying power that made it seem like the world was crashing down on him. It took all he had to barely resist.
This was the strongest opponent Yi Yun had faced in his entire life!
"You have truly surprised me. A junior at the fifth-storey Dao Palace can have such strength?" The red-dressed boy's voice sounded in Yi Yun's ears. The next moment, he ripped apart the void itself and appeared in front of Yi Yun!
"But as I already said, you have to die today!"
As the red-dressed boy spoke, he pressed down his palm towards Yi Yun's chest.
With a loud explosion, Yi Yun felt as though he was struck by a million pound sledgehammer in the chest. His sternum shattered as his organs were damaged. Large amounts of blood spewed out of his mouth!
Yi Yun flew backwards as blood splattered and trailed in his wake!
Upon seeing the blood, the red-dressed boy shook his head disapprovingly, "What a pity! This is all essential blood that can be used as a catalyst herb. Yet it's wasted just like this."
"You are the one I think the most highly of among the catalyst herbs, second only to my disciple. Why do you resist so?"
As the red-dressed spoke, he took a step forward and directly grabbed Yi Yun. His energy surged into Yi Yun's body, sealing every one of Yi Yun’s meridians!
His energy was much stronger than Yi Yun's and now, with the energy forming an array pattern, there was no way of breaking through it.
With that, Yi Yun could no longer use any of his Yuan Qi. He was left with no strength to resist and could not even commit suicide by terminating his meridians.
Of course, Yi Yun would absolutely not commit suicide. He would not give up his fight for survival until the very last moment.
"Could it be that the premonition I had all this while, that someone has been secretly spying on me in a bid to destroy my plans, is related to you?"
The red-dressed boy looked at Yi Yun from a high spot. What he said made Yi Yun's heart sink. Old Snake's soul was immensely powerful, higher than the Myriad God Patriarch. In fact, the Myriad God Patriarch could not directly discover Old Snake's spying, but he did have means of sensing it!
This old bastard had lived for so long that his eyes could even see the back of his head. Trying to backstab him was too difficult.
"It's fine even if you don't tell me. Only I can enter this pocket world. Even gods will not be able to save you."
The red-dressed boy sneered. Even if a mighty figure truly was backing Yi Yun, and had left a mark on him, he was unafraid. He had done Void Transference in order to prevent anything from going wrong.
"You will be entering the cauldron very soon. Are there any wishes you have yet to be fulfilled?" The red-dressed boy asked in a teasing manner.
"Old bastard, there will come a day when you will be crippled of your cultivation, as well as that old bastard of a Myriad God Sect Master. Both of you will be stewed in bastard turtle soup!" Yi Yun spat a mouthful of blood-stained spit. At that moment, he no longer put his hopes in Old Snake. Even if he could come, it was unknown how long in the future that would be. Furthermore, him even making it there was still a question.
He had to rely on himself.
"Hahaha!" The red-dressed boy guffawed. "Your personality actually suits me very well. Were it not for the importance you have to the Ascending Dragon Cauldron, and our relationship deteriorating to this stage, I actually would have liked to take you in as a disciple. You are a lot stronger than that stupid disciple of mine."
As the red-dressed boy spoke, he beckoned his hand and the divine treasures flew towards him and landed in his palm.
"Do you see this? Dragon Bone Milk. I used an immeasurable amount of time to search the Sinkhole before finding a netherworld deep in the Sinkhole. I found a dragon corpse that had been decaying for hundreds of millions of years, and obtained this bit of Bone Milk. In my eyes, it's the perfect divine item. Among all the divine items, I like the Dragon Bone Milk the most. This time, I will put the Dragon Bone Milk into the cauldron first. You will have the honor of entering the cauldron with it."
The red-dressed boy paused, suddenly thinking of something, and said, "Might you be thinking of eating all these divine treasures to get rid of them, risking the chance of you blasting apart to your death, so that the refinement of my Dragon Emperor Relic will fail?"
All the catalyst herbs, including Feng Yunyang, needed to be thrown into the cauldron alive. Living beings could naturally cause wanton destruction while inside the cauldron.
The red-dressed boy shook his head and said, "Do you think these divine treasures can be so easily digested? Even if you were to swallow them, they will still be refined into the Dragon Emperor Relic. But even so, I will not give you that chance."
As the red-dressed boy spoke, his palm came pressing down on Yi Yun's head!
