Demon Beast Ancestor maintained a distance from that distant, massive object. He was resisting the ripples of impact acting against him while trying his best to see that object ahead of him.
He could only make out—amidst the dazzling light produced by something flying at an exceptionally fast speed—a faint figure of a humanoid life-form. This humanoid life form was so tall that its height exceeded 100 million light years, and there it was, just lying flat on the ground. No matter how powerful Demon Beast Ancestor was, no matter how he racked his brains, he could not come up with any idea of how he could see better. All he could see was an unclear situation before him. Then, shortly after…
At a terrifically fast speed, the massive object vanished from the limits of Demon Beast Ancestor’s scope of view.
“Human, human, humanoid life-form?” Demon Beast Ancestor stood rooted to his spot for a long time.
God! In terms of size, this massive object was slightly bigger than a miniature universe, or even the Universe Boat. How could it actually be a humanoid life form? Even if a universe supreme master tried his very best to expand his godly body, reaching the size of one light year already proved to be exhausting. The more a godly body expanded, the more their godly power had to be consumed. Besides, none of them had ever reached a size as big as 100 million light years!
Moreover, it maintained a terrifying speed comparable to uninterrupted teleportation. It might be right to say that universe supreme masters were able to overcome the speed limit, but the faster their speed got, the more of their godly power would be consumed. The pressure that their bodies were subjected to would also become stronger. Such factors accounted for why no universe supreme master could achieve such a feat. And for a godly body to expand to such a massive size, its speed was bound to be reduced.
Bigger than a miniature universe! And a speed that was beyond one’s wildest imagination!
“No, it can’t possibly be a living soul, nor a great being. There can’t be a great being that is so formidable.”
Demon Beast Ancestor was in denial, unable to bring himself to believe that such a great being truly existed. How much more powerful would this great being be than him? A mere gaze could have seemingly destroyed him.
“It must be a strange object like the Universe Boat. The only difference is that Universe Boat took the form of a boat, and this object takes the form of a human.”
Demon Beast Ancestor willed himself to consider the manner and instantly felt much better.
“Another Universe Boat?” The moment Demon Beast Ancestor considered this, he felt the same suffocating breathlessness again.
The three most dangerous lands… A long time ago, Universe Ocean had not been one of the three most dangerous lands, and the Universe Boat had not existed. The Universe Boat had only appeared much later.
“Another being that was at least at the level of Universe Boat?” Demon Beast Ancestor was highly emotional. “And no other great being has encountered it yet. I am the first. So long as I can grab this opportunity… Catch up with it!”
Demon Beast Ancestor was full of fighting spirit and no longer worried about the dangers involved. After all, whether that was a formidable and terrifying life form or a strange object, nothing would be greatly affected. If it were a formidable and terrifying life form… seeing how it lay flat on the ground, it was either deep in slumber or had been annihilated. If it was a strange object, then all the more, there was nothing to fear.
Shua! Shua! Shua!
After a long-distance teleportation, Demon Beast Ancestor immediately caught up with that massive object that was flying at an extremely fast speed.
The massive object continued flying at the same speed, and Demon Beast Ancestor often had to teleport to a much further distance ahead of it to be in the lead. When the other party had overtaken him, he would, without further ado, teleport a great distance ahead to take the lead again.
Demon Beast Ancestor executed his endless domain type true treasure, and a blurry black light enshrouded the surrounding region. Then he manipulated the domain under his control and executed his most powerful secret technique. At that moment, close to 90 percent of a boundless domain under his influence converged to form a huge, fuzzy tail. This huge tail lashed at the massive object right away with a loud whistling sound!
A prior calculation of distance had been made, and right away, the tail lashed out at the body of the fast-approaching massive object.
The fuzzy tail was immediately shattered to pieces. Yet the massive object continued to advance!
“Seems like… Seems like there is no change in direction at all?”
Demon Beast Ancestor was a tad bewildered. He had intended to change the direction at which that massive object was flying, which explained why he had hit from the side. Apparently, he had not dared to use a true treasure weapon to directly bombard the massive object. He had been worried that the impact of the rebound tremors alone would cause him to sustain another round of heavy injuries. This was why he had used a domain type true treasure, so even if this domain attack were to be destroyed, he would not be greatly affected.
At first, he had thought that this was a non-living object, so bombarding it from the side would have at least caused it to change its direction, even if only to a minor extent.
“Could it be because it is too big? Maybe that’s why it was so stable even when flying.” Demon Beast Ancestor muttered to himself. “I’ll try again.”
Demon Beast Ancestor teleported repeatedly in order to catch up with the extremely fast-moving massive object, and every time, he forcefully attacked it by its side. Almost every day, he would attack up to a few hundred times…
In the blink of an eye, more than 100 years had passed.
“It is not as if my attacks have not caused it to change direction. My attacks did have some influence over it. It’s just that the effect is very, very small.” Demon Beast God was very worked up. “I have been bombarding it continuously for more than 100 years in order to cause it to change direction by only a small degree. The magnitude of that change in direction was so minuscule that even I, a universe supreme master, can barely detect the change.”
Even a universe supreme master could barely detect it. How small a magnitude could that be? Furthermore, he had to spend more than 100 years of continuous bombardment against that massive object in order to achieve such a slight change in direction.
“Continue! I must bring it to a halt before other great beings discover it.”
Demon Beast Ancestor was filled with fighting spirit. He felt that he could still afford to be hopeful, as Universe Ocean was, after all, enormous. Normally, when great beings traveled about within Universe Ocean, they had to depend on natural wormholes. But under such continuous teleportation, based on the direction of that massive object, attempting to fly all the way to arrive at the primal universe would probably take at least one million years.
The patience of a super great being was very strong, so even if Demon Beast God had to keep struggling for millions of eras, he would still do so with much patience, yet he had this incessant worry of being discovered. Although Universe Ocean was vast, other great beings still had to move about through the normal method of using natural wormholes. Therefore the chances of encountering this massive object were extremely low.
Nonetheless, he was still worried!
“I’ll continue to bombard it. Other than the three most dangerous lands within Universe Ocean, there are many other dangerous lands that are one notch less risky. Based on the direction of flight of this massive object, so long as he could bring it to change its course by a few degrees, it would have to pass through a particular dangerous land, Swirling Water River.”
Demon Beast Ancestor was looking forward expectantly as he continued to rain attacks on the massive object. There were many dangerous lands within Universe Ocean.
The most well-known ones were the three most dangerous lands, and there were many other dangerous lands that were a notch less risky. For example, Sitting Mountain Guest’s place of residence within Universe Ocean was one of the dangerous lands.
Another 6,5000 years passed.
“Now the direction is accurate.”
With an undying perseverance that could be likened to that of a worker ant gnawing at a huge mountain, Demon Beast Ancestor persisted for more than 6,000 years and continued to bombard the massive object on its side. Finally, that massive object was made to deviate a little from its original course. This tiny change, coupled with the long flight distance, subsequently accumulated to cause a huge deviation. This would bring the massive object crashing into the dangerous land of Swirling Water River!
“There will always be many great beings in the three most dangerous lands. And the other dangerous lands that are less risky are seldom visited by great beings. As for the most common dangerous lands, there isn’t a single great being to be found. Hopefully, there will be no great being in Swirling Water River.”
Demon Beast Ancestor prayed fervently.
Another three years flew by.
Swirling Water River!
It was a river that rotated consistently, with a total of 12 huge radial arms flowing with water. Amidst the swirling water, were numerous miniature islands. These islands were different in sizes, ranging from a few light years to a few hundred light years or beyond. As for the size of the entire Swirling Water River… its largest diameter could be as big as six million light years! Of course, this was still a lot smaller than the three most dangerous lands.
“Swirling Water River’s diameter is as wide as six million light years.”
Somewhere far away from the edge of Swirling Water River, Demon Beast Ancestor found himself a spot to settle down and keep watch from a far distance away. He had executed an extremely long-distance teleportation, followed by a one-time transit through a natural wormhole to rush over. This was how he had managed to arrive in advance.
“Swirling Water River is so huge, and that massive object’s diameter is over 100 million light years,” Demon Beast Ancestor was muttering to himself. “The difference in size between the two is not too far off the mark. There is a possibility of stopping it with Swirling Water River.”
Although he was muttering about the possibility of a positive outcome, he was still aware that the chances of stopping it were slim! If he could not succeed this time, he was worried that it would be extremely difficult for him to get the massive object to change course and crash into another dangerous land again.
The peaceful Swirling Water River, which was eternally rotating, had 12 huge radial arms of flowing water flow, each of which possessed unfathomable power. Speaking of power, it was more powerful than any other great being by a few thousand or even 10,000 times. This natural power was unbelievably terrifying. The history of its existence was even more ancient than that of the Universe Boat.
At that very moment, a being appeared that was even more massive than the entire Swirling Water River!
At a terrifying speed, the humanoid life form with a towering height of over one million light years crashed mercilessly into Swirling Water River with loud rumbles. The 12 radial arms, which originally had been so strong and powerful, were crashed with such force that, within an instant, they were ruptured and scattered all over the place. A large amount of water splashed far out into Universe Ocean.
Peng! Peng! Peng! Peng! Peng! Peng!
The little islands within Swirling Water River—upon being struck by such a high-speed attack—were like eggs exploding one after the other.
“What is happening?”
At that moment, in the deep-water region of Swirling Water River, a universe master who was maneuvering a top-tier palace true treasure was in the midst of exploring through Swirling Water River. To him, exploring Swirling Water River was far easier and safer than exploring the three most dangerous lands. To him, this was a form of relaxation.
Yet he suddenly felt the entire Swirling Water River trembling. Apparently, the high-speed crash brought about an impact that was so strong that the ripples could even cause this palace true treasure to tremble. However, this massive object was too fast to be seen clearly, and this universe master was only left with a glimmer of doubt in his mind. Soon after…
The boundless, massive object whistled past in a fleeting moment, and this top-tier palace true treasure, which was even more fragile than the little islands before—instantly exploded. The universe master who was inside the palace true treasure was annihilated right away. An impact of such a level… Even a universe master wearing a supreme true treasure armor would have been annihilated, not to mention this universe master.
It was sweeping up everything.
It was like a vehicle flying through a puddle; the water splashed out in all directions, but the vehicle continued to zoom past the pool at the same rate of speed.
Nothing had changed.
The massive object was still advancing at an extremely terrifying speed. In an instant, it passed through Swirling Water River, causing this dangerous land to be reduced to fragments. Water splashed out into all corners of Universe Ocean. As for that massive object, it was still moving at that terrifying speed, rocketing past Swirling Water Ocean as it left a trail of flowing light in its wake. Soon, it exceeded the limit of Demon Beast Ancestor’s scope of view and vanished from sight.
“Er…” Demon Beast Ancestor stared at the scene before him, dumbfounded.
He had fervently hoped that Swirling Water River could stop that massive object. Even if, in his heart, he had known that the chances were not high, he had nonetheless held onto some hope. Reality was always so cruel.
Had the massive object reduced its speed at all? It was simply too fast. Even Demon Beast Ancestor could not judge, but the implications were clear: Even if it there had been ten or even 100 Swirling Water Rivers in the way, there still would have been no stopping this massive object.
Within the universe of the Divine Eye Clan’s First True Master, an unlucky universe master reported to First True Master, recounting the events he had experienced.
“It was the Swirling Water River! At the time, I was still within my palace true treasure when I felt a strange yet terrifying tremor. I didn’t have time to respond when my top-tier place true treasure was instantaneously ruptured, and my other godly body was annihilated within a fleeting moment. Teacher, this was what happened.”
“A top-tier palace true treasure was shattered in an instant?” said First True Master. He also felt as though something bizarre was happening. “Swirling Water River…?”
