Chapter 662 - Supreme Inheritance
All eyes were cast in this direction. Underworld Child was unexpectedly killed!
Another exceptional talent was killed. This was definitely a major event, especially because Underworld Child was not an ordinary exceptional talent. He came from Underworld Earth, and his power was extremely powerful.
Even the exceptional talents in the distance who were chasing after the 'bone symbol' were shocked. They looked in this direction, their eyes passing over the lakes and beautiful mountain peaks, piercing through the hazy mist to look in this direction.
"Grandpa… It truly is me!" Shi Hao transmitted mentally. He grabbed Grandpa Fifteen's arm, and his eyes turned red. After experiencing so many difficulties, he was finally reunited with his grandfather.
At this moment, he was full of joy and excitement, as well as a soreness deep down.
"My… Hao'er!" The Great Demonic God was usually an unyielding and valiant man, but right now, he was trembling slightly. He stared at this youth that could kill exceptional talents.
When he first obtained news of his grandson's death, it was like thunder dropping down from the sky, hacking down on his mind. He felt incomparably grieved and bitter. To have his own grandchild die before him was a truly painful thing.
After so much time had passed, there was still a haze covering his heart. Grandpa Fifteen felt as if a part of himself had died, and he aged rather quickly during this period of time.
It was because his heart was like dead ashes. The grandson he longed to meet the most had died. This was a great mental shock to him.
"Haha…" Grandpa Fifteen roared with laughter. Old tears rolled down his face. The reunion today had happened too suddenly, and he almost couldn't believe it. This was a miracle, one that consoled his dejected heart.
Two black divine lions, five or six pure-blooded fierce birds that were spiraling about, and several stalks of ancient trees quickly disappeared from the region Shi Hao was standing in. They were all powerful creatures in the secret realm.
Many cultivators quickly withdrew, only stopping when they were far enough away, not daring to come closer.
Even several experts that ignited their divine flames revealed looks of shock, gazing in this direction. They felt like this youth was a troublesome existence.
At the secret realm entrance, above the altar.
Black mists pervaded the air. A powerful figure appeared, one with golden armor that radiated cold black light. There was a deathly aura around him. A pair of eyes opened in the darkness, ice cold and ruthless.
He looked like a death god from the underworld. It made others shiver inwardly.
"Another extraordinary cultivator was killed… Who is this person? How could his aura be so terrifying? I feel like he is even a bit more formidable than Sun God Vine Race's divine child."
There were cultivators discussing in a soft voice. They felt a wave of ice-cold and life-less fluctuation. They immediately felt an ominous feeling, as well as fear.
Even the senior elders that were protecting the secret realm frowned. This individual was cruel and cold. Ever since he returned, he didn't say a word. Black underworld mists surrounded him, making them all feel unwell.
"It's him, Underworld Child!"
Someone cried out in shock. His identity was finally exposed.
With the truth now known, a huge uproar was raised. Who was Underworld Child? He came from a desolate and ice-cold place of death. Some people called that place the 'Underworld'.
The title of Underworld Child meant that he was extraordinary and his strength was also great. He was definitely not someone ordinary young talents could compare to!
There was a rumor in the outside world that he had killed 'exceptional talents' before. He had extraordinary battle successes, defeating all those in his past. In this present world, there were still none who could stop him!
"Little friend, who did you fight against?" An old sect master asked, not mentioning how he was killed and instead asked this. This was also an act of trying to help the youth save face.
"A youth…" Underworld Child said coldly. Right now, he had already calmed down and no longer showed neither anger nor dismay. He was cold and callous, as if he didn't feel any emotions.
"It's him again!"
This time, forget about ordinary people, even several sect masters narrowed their eyes. A glimpse of divine radiance could be seen. It was clear that they were paying particular attention to this young devil king.
"How extraordinary, this young devil king!"
"He is quite amazing, truly formidable. He first killed several dozen experts from the Scarlet Feathered Crane Race, and then he killed the Dragon Sparrow and Purple True Hou, Sun God Vine Jin Lie, and now Underworld Child!"
Everyone discussed this among themselves.
Tears poured out from Fire Devil Palace people's eyes. Why did they have to bring them up every time? It hurts too much!
This was the second 'exceptional talent' killed in the secret realm, but both incidences were caused by the same person. Forget about the cultivators that were always watching the situation here, even the people who weren't as familiar with things knew that this was not ordinary!
The young devil king immediately became the focal point of everyone's discussions. Everyone began to guess at his identity.
"This youth is truly formidable." Shi Ziling and his wife were also discussing this, feeling worry for Qin Hao.
The name 'Huang' began to be discussed among everyone again. The mysterious expert that appeared in Five Elements Province recently was the only one that seemed to match this description. He left his name on the Demonic Sovereign's divine monument, suppressing Qin Changsheng in power and overlooking all ten provinces.
"Start up the altar for me. I want to go back." Underworld Child said in a heavy tone. There were black mists curling about him, as well as the aura of Underworld Earth. He was going to enter the secret realm again.
In the depths of the secret realm, the lake region.
The watery mists surged. Beautiful mountain peaks flowed with brilliant colors, and a misty haze could be seen. It made this place look like a realm of immortals.
Shi Hao and the Great Demonic God left the chaotic battlefield, because that was not the place to reminisce about the past at all. They had too many things to say, and it was hard for them to calm down inside.
Now, Grandpa Fifteen was already clear-headed and roaring with laughter. He was stirred up and excited to the extreme, because he thought that his grandson had died, which made him feel inwardly grieved. How could he have predicted that a living grandson would appear in front of him today?
Inside a remote place, the grandfather and grandson arranged a formation together, separating themselves from the outside world, and then they revealed their true appearances.
"Grandfather, your hair is all white already." Shi Hao's nose felt sour, and his eyes became red. The Great Demonic God was fifty or sixty in age and should be in his golden age, surging with blood energy and vitality, but right now, his hair was white, and the corners of his eyes carried many fine wrinkles. Great changes could be seen within them.
"Even though grandfather's outer appearance has become a bit older, but my vitality is still here! Now that I know you are still alive, my blood energy will immediately soar into the skies and recover, hahaha!" The Great Demonic God said open-mindedly.
He looked at Shi Hao's appearance closely, patting his shoulders and appearing more and more happy. The grandson he cared about the most was not only alive, he even slaughtered his way into the higher realms, killing exceptional talents here. He was especially satisfied with his temperament and manner of conduct.
Even though Shi Hao had met with the Great Demonic God's spiritual body, now that they reunited again, there was still an extremely moved feeling. He felt incomparable sorrow and joy.
Unfortunately, the one that appeared before was just a spiritual body, and it quickly died, so it couldn't bring the news to his grandfather.
"Grandfather, you are…" Suddenly, Shi Hao was shocked. He saw Grandpa Fifteen's sleeve was still empty. That arm was still missing.
He quickly lifted that sleeve, noticing that this was the case after all!
Previously, the youth's arms were both intact, but now that they restored their true appearance, why was his arm missing again?
When he saw the Great Demonic God's hair turn white, his face full of wrinkles and great changes, as well as the broken arm, Shi Hao felt great pain inwardly. It made him feel extremely bad. His grandfather had gone through so many difficulties during these past few years.
The Great Demonic God consoled him, saying, "Don't worry, your grandfather is already a supreme expert and is about to ignite his divine flame any day now. When one reaches this level, they can regrow broken limbs, so it will all regrow soon."
The Great Demonic God turned his hand, and then a jade figure appeared. He told Shi Hao that it was because he merged with this figure that he could form the appearance of a youth again, as well as fill in the arm he was missing.
This was a precious artifact he found in an ancient cave while being pursued on Fiend Island. It was something left behind by someone that previously died there.
Shi Hao nodded. His grandfather's arm could be regrown. One could regrow their flesh upon entering the supreme expert realm, but recently, he had been in an extremely sorry state, constantly pursued by Heavenly Country, so he didn't take the time to reconstruct his real body.
However, he was still worried. He personally examined his grandfather, and then in the end, he revealed a look of shock. Grandpa Fifteen's blood energy was too rich. It was truly astonishing!
"After taking in the Demonic Sovereign's true blood, I was unable to refine it, so I sealed all of it inside my flesh and bones," said Grandpa Fifteen. This was the greatest natural opportunity he obtained from Fiend Island.
Shi Hao was overjoyed. He could see that a sphere of true blood was scattered within the flesh, slowly cleansing his grandfather's flesh. Sooner or later, a great transformation would take place.
"Grandfather, do not rush to light your divine flame and wait until your missing arm is properly regrown. When I've obtained even more holy medicines, I'll refine a furnace of divine flame pills, and then you should advance."
At the same time, he frowned. He sensed a wave of yin energy in his grandfather's body. It was attached to his bones and quite strange.
"What is this?"
"So you noticed…" Grandpa Fifteen sighed. This was a side effect that was brought about by ingesting the Demonic Sovereign's true blood.
The Demonic Sovereign's true blood, forget about a fist sized amount, just a drop was already too much for an ordinary person to endure. Directly devouring it will definitely cause the body to explode.
Fortunately, this sphere of true blood left behind by the Demonic Sovereign had already exhausted its innate killing energy. All of the harmful substances pretty much no longer existed.
Otherwise, even if it was a true deity that ate it, their flesh would still explode, wiping out their body and spirit.
Even though this true blood didn't have any killing intent and had been completely dissolved, it was still left behind by a forbidden existence. He already died, and the entire Fiend Island was dusky and overcast. This sphere of blood naturally had a bit of deathly energy mixed in.
Even though it was just a trace, for the inheritor, it was still extremely troublesome. At first, Grandpa Fifteen could still control it, but after being pursued by Heavenly Country's angel of light, he suffered serious injuries, causing problems to appear. This caused the yin energy to quickly extend towards the bones all over his entire body.
In particular, Heavenly Country's assassins all moved through darkness. They all crawled out from a mountains of corpses and a sea of blood, so their bodies were contaminated by rich amounts of deathly energy and yin mists.
Their killing blades were the most vile weapons. They fed on flesh and devoured the soul. When Grandpa Fifteen was hacked like this, that trace of yin energy immediately began to erupt with action.
After Shi Hao learned about this, he tightened his fists and said, "I will pay Heavenly Country a visit sooner of later and overturn the entire inheritance!"
Regardless of whether it was his own grandfather, Heaven Mending Pavilion's Ghost Grandpa, or himself, they all had an undissolvable blood feud with this place. He already made the vow a long time ago to settle things one day.
"This isn't a big problem." Grandpa Fifteen consoled him. He brought out a jar of strong alcohol and began to drink it with gudong gudong sounds. For him, this type of wine could ease the coldness of the yin energy.
"The alcohol is effective?" Shi Hao was astonished.
"It is." The Great Demonic God nodded.
"In the future, I will find divine wine for grandfather. I believe the little devil wine made from holy medicines will definitely be able to completely eliminate the yin energy!" Shi Hao said.
He had drank normal little devil wine and already thought that it was divine wine. Its taste was extremely great, so he truly wanted to see what the little devil wine made from holy medicines would taste like.
"Demonic Sovereign's true blood has a few symbols inside. I comprehended its true meanings. It is a flesh refinement wondrous technique. It can improve the body, gradually transforming it and making it stronger."
Grandpa Fifteen produced a set of symbols for Shi Hao. It wasn't especially profound, but it was too wonderful for words. It merged together with ordinary symbols, turning the rotten into the miraculous. It could be considered a supreme inheritance!
Shi Hao silently experienced it, and then he felt greatly shocked.
The Demonic Sovereign rose up in an age of turmoil. At first, he wasn't all that dazzling, being outshone by the brilliance of many other geniuses. However, he walked forward step by step, slowly becoming stronger, ultimately becoming a sovereign of the world.
It was because he rose up from the weakest, setting his hand at the most ordinary bone texts, and that was why the wonderful technique he produced also had this type of style.
He used the secret technique to continuously transform, allowing his own constitution to become more and more powerful. It was the same as slowly shedding his mortal body and exchanging his bones, undergoing rebirth bit by bit until he ultimately overlooked the higher realms.
"It is a different method from the True Primordial Record but produces similar result. They all start with the most ordinary, most primitive symbols, gradually undergoing rebirth until it erupts with the most brilliant sparks."
Shi Hao sighed with amazement. He brought out the True Primordial Record and gave it to his grandfather to look at, letting him observe and comprehend it.
He felt that even though he was seriously cultivating the true record, his comprehension wasn't profound enough. He should continue to observe and study it until he fully understood it. At that point, he might be able to win over many powerful divine methods without any technique himself!
Of course, the Kun Peng, True Phoenix, and other archaic vicious ten precious techniques couldn't be abandoned, because these types of inheritances already reached the pinnacle of this world. They could be considered a self-protecting dao.
Understanding all techniques was one thing; it did not mean that everything else should be abandoned. He still had to grasp several most powerful divine abilities, just like how even the benevolent had to hold blades to keep the law!
"Child, you have to always cultivate this secret method. Perhaps you can allow the supreme being blood to be reborn again," said Grandpa Fifteen.
His grandson lost his supreme being bone twice, making it hard for him to feel relieved. He felt rather regretful inwardly, especially since the other grandson wasn't able to save Shi Hao, yet took away his true bone. This made Grandpa Fifteen feel inwardly stifled.
Right now, Shi Hao's supreme being blood was dried up and completely withered. He already couldn't be considered an exceptional talent.
Grandpa Fifteen was thinking to himself. If his grandson completely recovered, how powerful would he become then?
"I will cultivate it." Shi Hao nodded. Then, he thought of something and said, "Grandpa, you have yin energy inside. Perhaps if you cultivate a bit of extreme yang methods, you can expel it."
He thought of the Kun Peng technique's great yang power, and then he thought of the pure yang lightning precious technique!
"Grandfather, you should cultivate the lightning technique first. I obtained several exceptional precious medicines from the immortal tomb. If you take a stalk, you can quickly comprehend a type of lightning dao divine ability!"
He had the Suan Ni technique, as well as the Thundersky Sparrow's divine ability. Of course, the most powerful should be the sheet of golden book from the Dragon Mastiff.
During these past few days, he continuously pondered over the golden page. It was impermeable to fire and water, difficult to destroy. However, it didn't have symbols either, instead occasionally releasing dao sounds. He couldn't comprehend it either though, which left him feeling rather helpless.
"Let's study it together, seeing exactly what is going on." The Great Demonic God accepted the golden book and said.
The two of them tried all types of methods, but they were all useless.
In the end, Shi Hao tossed this golden sheet into the first sized pill furnace. There was water from the heavenly river inside, as well as immortal tomb's earth. They both contained endless lightning as well immortal aura.
Electricity crackled about. Lightning radiance shone unendingly. A shocking transformation happened to this golden paper. It absorbed the immortal dao aura and shone resplendently within the electricity, becoming sparkling and brilliant.
"This is…" The grandfather and grandson were both shocked.
The golden paper was covered densely in large amounts of bone texts. Even though they were all produced from electricity, it was profound and complex to the extreme. There was even a wave of supreme pressure!
"This is definitely the inheritance left behind by the Dragon Mastiff!" The Great Demonic God said. His eyes were shining with excitement.
"This… why do I feel like it is similar to when I faced the Kun Peng technique? This is a supreme forbidden divine ability!" Shi Hao was greatly shaken.
"Formidable!" Grandpa Fifteen also nodded.
"Us grandfather and grandson pair will completely comprehend it, and then we will join hands to sweep through those people in the secret realm!" Shi Hao roared with laughter. His 'savage' nature appeared again.
