Chapter 1026: Frantic!
Translator: Sigma_ Editor: Hitesh_
Sitting on the dark blue asteroid, Shi Yan suddenly opened his eyes, his face pale.
He had always been silent in cultivating, sending his Soul Consciousness to sense the magical features of the sixteen space nodes around him. However, he had just sensed one of them become chaotic. It seemed some unknown force was breaking them unceasingly.
His strange reaction woke up Fei Lan and the others as they looked at him in confusion.
Shi Yan didn't explain. He closed his eyes and continued sensing the other space nodes of the life star number nine under Potion and Tool Pavilion.
After less than ten minutes, five space nodes were distorted by an appalling force. They couldn't function as teleporting ports anymore.
He paled while thoughts flashed through his head like electric beams.
In a flash, he jolted up with fear, talking anxiously. "They're sixteen space nodes around this area. Someone is breaking them continually. Evidently, a powerful force is going to attack that life star! As they can break the space nodes, they should have an intimidating force! This action aims at Zha Duo! They know Zha Duo's here!"
Ka Tuo was surprised, but then he felt happy on the other's misfortune. "They deserve that! The Potion and Tool Pavilion have bad luck this time!"
Fei Lan and the others also had an indifferent visage. They didn't care about the Potion and Tool Pavilion, especially that foul-mouthed Zha Duo. As the Potion and Tool Pavilion didn't believe Shi Yan, they didn't have any good feelings for that force. They even wished a big loss for them.
"If they don't care about us, should we leave now? We shouldn't get involved in this mess," said Ka Tuo.
Shi Yan frowned with a stern look. He pondered and then said, "I'm going to deliver you guys through a space node that still functions."
Shortly, he gathered his energy, as space slits moved around him like electric beams. Gradually, those electric space beams twisted with each other, creating a mysterious space channel above their heads.
"Get in there… all of you!" Shi Yan hissed.
Fei Lan and the others didn't understand his actions. They all looked at him bewilderedly.
"After you get out of the passage, navigate a direction and move far away, as fast as possible. Don't rest!" Shi Yan's face was stern like never before. "Leave this area quickly. Stay on a mineral star or a life star. Do not return at any cost!"
The force that could break the space nodes and attack the Potion and Tool Pavilion's life star number nine should have formidable power.
He understood that the Potion and Tool Pavilion would encounter a danger they had never seen before. With one wrong step, their situation would change dramatically. Even Shi Yan wasn't sure if he could survive this furious battle.
However, he had to get back there. It was not because of the Potion and Tool Pavilion. It was because Xia Xin Yan was still down there!
"Senior, if you want to go, we'll go together!" shouted Ka Tuo.
"I have to go. There's someone I can't leave behind. I have to get back there!" Shi Yan barked.
"Then, we will return together!" Fei Lan hissed. Her face showed that she wouldn't accept a no.
"You can't be of help there. I don't want you to die in vain. The opponent is extremely intimidating this time, stronger than you can ever imagine. If they dare to plot against the three Elders of the Potion and Tool Pavilion, of course, they're prepared. Our force can't do anything!" Shi Yan took a deep breath, talking. "You guys, don't worry too much. I've been struggling in the most dangerous area for almost all my life. If I go alone, I will have seventy percent chance of surviving. If you follow me, I will have to worry a lot. It's no different from a burden."
"Go together or stay together!" said Leona.
Shi Yan felt warm inside, but his face grimaced. He couldn't help but shout at them, touching his forehead. "I'm going to use my status as the heir of the Master of Bloodthirsty's Cortege of Eight for the first time to order you guys to leave immediately. I don't have much time. If you waste a second, my chance to survive will reduce further!"
The space nodes were still disappearing. When all the space nodes here were destroyed, this area would be completely locked. At that time, the Potion and Tool Pavilion wouldn't be able to connect with other places.
Many Sound Stones and secret treasures used to communicate would need the space nodes to transfer the message. Once all the space nodes of this area were destroyed, this area would be completely blockaded. Then, they would be confined and unable to send a message to get help.
He knew what it meant.
Although he had been together with Fei Lan, Leona, and Ka Tuo for many years, he hadn't used his status as the descendant of Bloodthirsty to order them into doing anything. If he still had a chance, he wouldn't do that this time.
However, when he did that, it meant the situation had come to the most perilous moment.
"As told by Master, I don't dare to not follow!" Benny was the first one to talk. This dark teenager made a strange hand gesture to greet him, then leaped up into the space channel.
Fei Lan, Ka Tuo, and Leona reddened their faces as they were struggling in their minds. Eventually, they nodded, telling him to take care and then pulled Xuan Ming and Zuo Shi, leaping up to the passage. After that, they disappeared in a short while.
Waiting until all of them had left, Shi Yan changed his power Upanishad. The space channel he had made shrank into a light dot and vanished.
He didn't hurry to get into the Potion and Tool Pavilion's life star number nine. He took a deep breath, sending away three drops of his ruby blood together with a wisp of Soul Consciousness. The three drops gathered into a thread, moving into the endless sea of stars. It got into a space node near the Devil Blood Star. Within a second, it had traveled billions of miles away.
At this most dangerous moment, he suddenly felt powerless, as if he didn't have any bit of energy left in his body. Besides Blood Devil, he didn't know whom to count on.
He used to say that it was hard to contact Blood Devil, but that was the case when he didn't use Immortal Demon Blood. If he tried the Immortal Demon Blood to contact Blood Devil, he could send a wisp of his Soul Consciousness to him. However, since it was the first time Shi Yan tried this type of communication, he wasn't so sure when Blood Devil could receive his message.
Using this communication method, he could send a limited amount of information. He could only tell the other the Agate Star Area would have a great change originating from the Shadow Ghostly Prison. He also sent his location, saying that his life was threatened.
He wasn't sure if Blood Devil would believe him and come to him or not. However, he must spread the news, because he knew that if he hadn't sent the information before the space nodes were all destroyed, he wouldn't have a single chance anymore.
A blood thread with his Soul Consciousness had gone through the space nodes and traveled billions of miles in just a blink of an eye.
Taking a deep breath, he didn't want to waste more time. He gathered his energy, blowing a punch of starlight on the black cotton cloud defense underneath.
Shortly after, the Potion and Tool Pavilion's guard, who had taken them in and out previously, emerged with his face grimaced. He shouted, "Why are you still here?"
Shi Yan knew it was of no use to explain to him as he wouldn't understand or believe him. He just smiled, talking, "I forgot my stuff down there. I just want to take it back. I won't trouble you. Please let me in for a while."
The guard wasn't calm at all. The good impression he had for Shi Yan was fading as he frowned, "How long do you need?"
"Short, I just need fifteen minutes," Shi Yan hurried.
He needed to enter this life star. He shouldn't waste time here, because the space nodes were still being destroyed. He didn't have much time left.
Zha Duo also had Space power Upanishad. However, unless he was sensing the change of space nodes outside the life star, he wouldn't get the situation. At this moment, Zha Duo was still discussing with Xia Xin Yan, so he wasn't free to sense around.
If he knew of the changes outside, he should have prepared already. However, as Shi Yan saw nothing changing in this life star, he knew Zha Duo hadn't found anything.
"You have fifteen minutes." The guard told Shi Yan impatiently. He opened the barrier and let him in.
However, as soon as he pierced through the atmosphere of the life star number nine, he madly drilled forward as if he were crazy. Star energy, God power, and negative energy burst out at the same time. He let them all flow, not wanting to store even a bit. He moved even faster than lightning. Shortly after, he fell into the lake at the center of the life star while shouting. "I want to meet your Elders!"
As he was still screaming, he stormed to the center of the lake. His aura surged powerfully, which wasn't less than the exploding power of an Ethereal God Realm expert.
The guards of Potion and Tool Pavilion standing around the lake saw only a lightning strike struck down, trying to pierce the lake. They all shouted and rushed to stop him. Most of them were at the Original God Realm, with many precious treasures and weapons. Instantaneously, lightning crossed the light, weaving above the lake to seal it.
"Open the barrier and let me in!" Shi Yan thundered angrily.
"You court death!"
The Potion and Tool Pavilion's guards cursed. They shouted the warning, soaring into the sky to stop him.
Shi Yan was impatient this time, so he didn't have the mood to entangle with them. His eyes reddened. A blood light appeared as the giant broadsword emerged in his hand.
The several-thousand-meter blood light column moved like a garnet rainbow, slashing down and sending a sharp, brutal aura that could even open the sky.
The light curtain dozens of guards at the Original God Realm were making was torn. Many of those guards spurted out blood as they were blown backward.
More Potion and Tool Pavilion's guards came. They all looked terrified as they looked at him and started to shout. "He's crazy! He will trouble the elders. Stop him! Stop him!"
In their eyes, Shi Yan with his red eyes was already crazy. They didn't notice what he was talking, and they just wanted to stabilize this chaotic situation.
With the flame of anger that rose his murderous aura to the sky, Shi Yan had his negative energy burst out like a raging flood. The red eyes on the sword opened, and a flow of death aura filled the entire life star number nine. In this rushing situation, it was the first time he urged all of his power. Now, he looked like the God of Slaughter of the Underworld. His sword tilted, slashing the second time. The thousands of meters long blood rainbow fell into the lake.
The lake seethed violently as dozens of water column shot up into the sky. A terrifying energy hole appeared in the lake, sending billions of light dots backward.
He had made up his mind. If he couldn't get into the main hall under the lake, he would force the people in there to come out!
