1 Xue Mo

While Xue Mo was looking around trying to make sense of the situation, when everything came back to him as he heard a voice that said, "Xue Mo, this is the end. You may have been able to survive for ten days, but today is the day you die".

"Xue Mo, if you give up and surrender the Chaos Harmony Scripture, we might spare your life. If you continue on this pointless endeavor, the only path forward is your death with your Soul scattered."

"Wang Chong, why waste any more words on someone like him? let's just kill him and take it from his dead body. We need not fear him anymore after we kill him, we can free this world from a devil-like him and benefit the entire Divine Hell Universe by ridding it from its strongest and most dangerous individual in it".

In the [Blood Drinking Mountain Range], the most powerful characters in the [Divine Hell Universe] gathered to stop one abomination.

Cultivators who have reached the [Divine Celestial Stage] could use the laws of the Universe they understood doing their bidding. Their powers have reached a height no ordinary cultivator can amount to; they have a lifespan that can extend for millions of years. Their fame has reached the entire realm, where they are worshiped or feared, for their prowess in that world knows no bounds.

Even Cultivators of their Caliber have put their pride aside and band together to face one man, Nah, to meet one devil who was bleeding from every part of his body that you can't even believe he is still alive.

With his black, red robes that are now soaked entirely with his and his enemies' blood, Xue Mo stood upright with his noble and captivating devilish face. He stood proudly, his arrogance exuding from every fiber of his being, against dozens of both righteous and devilish cultivators.

In his right hand was a spear that killed countless adversaries and absorbed their blood. And on his wrists coiled a chain as black as the darkest abyss, While holding in his left hand the Chaos Harmony Scripture, The scripture that will overturn the current laws of the Divine Hell Universe. With an aura and pressure that will kill an average person just by being near it, Xue Mo stood there resolute in carrying out his goals till the very end.

He displayed an image unique only to him that made all the surrounding Celestials seem as insignificant as bugs. His mind, calm and bright as the day he avenged his father and gained enlightenment on the next path of Cultivation. But his eyes were the usual cold that someone with his life experiences, someone who wants to reach further heights in Cultivation, would have. His eyes that were unfeeling, and rigid, the eyes of someone who would massacre entire sects without even flinching, a dim glow of something no one thought possible, an expression of extreme yearning and warmth appeared.

"This world is too low for me."

He said with his usual cold and detached voice with an unusual hint of resoluteness that displayed his emotions at that moment. This expression made the Celestials around a gasp, for they never thought this cold and unfeeling man could show emotions.

The Top experts who were observing him intently for any sign of retaliation, knew what he was talking about but could never fathom the concept of his words for they might be the top experts. But, they hadn't reached the apex that he achieved and felt the shackles that are stopping them, from going further, to new heights never seen before in the history of the [Divine Hell Universe].

From the first appearance of his name on the tongues of prominent clans and sects when he annihilated an infamous righteous sect while being a mere unknown weakling, to his most significant achievement of killing the strongest Cultivator of the realm with one stab of his spear.

His stories have long been known and heard by even mere children, to scare them from doing wrong to where no one dares to go near him. No race would dare go close to him, fearing the annihilation of the entire race, to the degree that even mindless beasts developed an innate fear of him.

He had long reached the highest Cultivation this world has. This had allowed him to feel the chains that are binding the realm from connecting to a higher world and stopping him from reaching greater heights after finding out that there was a chain that's locking the world and preventing him from getting stronger. The first thought came to him was, 'I'll destroy it and open a path for the higher realms,' and that's what he tried to do. Yes, tried to. But he failed again and again till no end. That's when he thought, 'maybe there is another way to break the chains.'

Not that he was stupid or didn't think of other ways, but because his experience allowed him to think of different ways, it was the reason that he wanted to try to breakthrough using his own strength. This way, he would have at least tried and done all he can, while testing his current power over something that can lock and seal the world. Seeing that he was still weak compared to the laws that are binding the Divine Hell Universe, Xue Mo gave up and went on a trip to find the other ways. The way to finally get out and explore what additional power this Universe might have.

He searched for a way to break these chains, and finally, after one hundred thousand years, he found it—the 'key' to breaking the chains.

****

Present

In the most profound and dangerous territory of the Divine Hell Universe the shadow abyss

Stood a young-looking man that doesn't look a day over twenty-five. He had a sharp-looking face with black-colored eyes and purplish-red hair, lean muscular contours that make him look handsome. This contrasted with his severe cold unfeeling and disdaining personality. This man is non other than Xue Mo. He would have looked nice if it wasn't for all the spirit beasts and other races' corpses, strewn all around him, making him look even more devilish, with his stiff-looking face that doesn't seem to ever change in expression.

Xue Mo held in his right hand, one of the two items that he had squandered thousands of years of his life searching for.

The Chaos Harmony Scripture.

A cultivation technique that had come from the primordial origin, which is known as a powerful entity capable of many things. A great existence, only mentioned but without information on, which made the Chaos Harmony Scripture even more important and mysterious. And one of only two treasures that can change the complete structure of an individual's Soul.

It is also one component that makes up the 'key,' which would allow Xue Mo to break the chains confining the Divine Hell Universe.

While in his left hand, Xue Mo held the second 'key' component that he just found. The last piece of the 'key' and a shard of primordial origin.

Just as he was about to combine them and forge the 'key,' Xue Mo noticed that he lost too much blood, he didn't know how, but after killing all those who were after him and opening a path to find the key components, he had only gotten a small scratch.

Just as Xue Mo was about to die from blood loss, he found that the reason he was losing blood was because the 'key' parts that he had painstakingly collected had been swallowing all the surrounding blood without him even noticing, and it even sucked his blood from the small scratch he had.

After drinking all the blood around Xue Mo, the two 'key' parts, the Chaos Harmony Scripture and the Primordial Origin shard started shining with a blinding light that spread through the entire realm.

It made everyone, from ordinary people to the strongest Cultivators, temporarily blind. It was as if they weren't even allowed to look at what's happening.

Just as the light started to dim down, Xue Mo's body began falling to the ground, disintegrating into nothingness, and ending the legend of the strongest Cultivator that the Divine Hell Universe had known.

When his Soul started leaving his disintegrating body and entered the cycle of reincarnation, the two 'key' components that were supposed to help him open the realm and destroy the chains confining it started vibrating and integrating. Making the 'key,' he wanted to create by their own volition. As if they had found their veritable master, they stopped Xue Mo's Soul from leaving. They dashed towards it until they came face to face with it, and that's when it happened.

The now forged 'key' took Xue Mo's Soul and made it towards the chain that is binding the Divine Hell Universe and locking it in place. It materialized a keyhole, so it entered through. As it did, it twisted itself, which made a clicking hum that sounds like the chiming of bells reverberate through the entire realm. As if to announce the department of the Soul of the person, that was once the strongest person ever to set foot in the Divine Hell Universe.

The departure of Xue Mo

As the Soul started flying out of the realm, the key twisted again and followed it after closing the lock, and as the lock was dematerializing, the key followed through the crack before it closed, escaping from the still closed off realm. As soon as it neared the Soul, the key split off again to the parts it compounded from, and entered the Soul, as if it was always a part of it.

When the shards fused with the Soul, a kind of chain reaction was set off that changed the Soul to its fundamental composition, transforming it into its purest form. This made an entirely unique Soul come to be after the Primordial Origin shard had fused with Xue Mo's Soul.

When all of this finished the Chaos Harmony Scripture that is now part of the new Soul, started changing and becoming something similar to a chaotic but stable transparent energy, this energy is the origin energy that only primordial origin is supposed to possess. Now through this energy, a recent series of events started happening, one that might help this new Primordial Origin soul to develop into something new never seen before.
