    B4C27: A new journey

    5 short knives and a black long spear are floating in the air.

    Father, Ill give you these 5 short knives and this long spear. Qin Yu says smilingly.

    Ah, these are There is a note of ecstasy on Qin Des face. Werent these 5 short knives taken in by Wu Xing last time? Qin De can totally understand that Qin Yu naturally came into possession of Wu Xings treasures after his death.

    However, when ordinary people obtain such treasures as these weapons, they will keep them for themselves instead of giving them to other people.

    Seeing the black long spear, Fengyuzi says with wonderment: This long spear is the Xiang clans Conquerors Spear, right? In that battle on the River Wu, even though I was staying on a river shore, I still saw how formidable this Conquerors Spear was. Xiao Yu, I never expected that youd even manage to fetch the spear after killing Xiang Yang. This really is

    Qin Yu gives a smile: Pity his suit of armor was badly damaged by Xiao Heis special skill and was no longer useful.

    Xiao Hei uses holy sense communication at once from a distance: Big brother, pity what? If more than half of his suit of armor hadnt been corroded by my Dark Moon technique, it wouldve been extremely difficult for you to kill him directly. You really went overboard. Having been badly injured, you still dived so deep into the water to fetch this long spear.

    Being questioned by Xiao Hei, Qin Yu simply chooses not to answer.

    Father, these 3 secret books were given to me by my master, but I have no use for them. I can guarantee that theyre absolutely top-class practice techniques in the Xiuzhen world. But the techniques are only a bridge to a Xiuzhenist and he still has to walk the path of practice step by step on his own. Even with these secret books Uncle Feng and you still need to try hard because their usefulness is actually not very great. Qin Yu says smilingly.

    Fengyuzi says with a shake of his head: Xiao Yu, dont be so modest. These Xiuzhen secret books also contain various suitable attacking techniques. With these top-class techniques, even if an opponent is a level above us in power, we will still be able to rely on our powerful attacks to give him a good fight.

    The determining factor in a battle between Xiuzhenists is their fighting power.

    A Xiuzhenists fighting power is decided by his holy weapons, holy pills, power level and offensive techniques. In other words, during a battle, a Xiuzhenist has to rely on his holy weapons, holy pills, personal power level and some special attacking techniques, which is exactly what Qin Yu and Xiao Hei have done.

    Towards end of the battle, Qin Yu executed the Stellar Field and the Meteor Strike while Xiao Hei performed the 1st strike of the Dark Moon technique, which was even more formidable than his Flaming Lightning. Only thanks to these special blows were they able to kill Xiang Yang, who was actually much more powerful than them. This has shown that attacking techniques are no less important than holy weapons.

    Father, I have 10 holy pills in here -- 10 Bluish Vermilion Pills. They are very effective in healing Xiuzhenists injuries. Qin Yu takes out from his spatial ring a jade bottle which contains 10 Bluish Vermilion Pills.

    Bluish Vermilion Pills are like a sacred medicine when it comes to treating injuries. Generally, when the internal organs are damaged, even Xiuzhenists will find it hard to recover from this, but if they can eat a Bluish Vermilion Pill, they will become healthy very quickly.

    Qin Yu has the Meteoric Tear so these Bluish Vermilion Pills are not important to him. However he has only taken out more than half of the Bluish Vermilion Pills left behind by Lei Wei and has put the remaining 3 pills in another bottle just in case Xiao Hei will need them later.

    Bluish Vermilion Pills, you said Bluish Vermilion Pills? Fengyuzi suddenly opens his eyes wide.

    Qin Yu is stupefied because Fengyuzi is a bit too shocked at the moment.

    Yep theyre Bluish Vermilion Pills. Uncle Feng, whats the matter? He asks doubtfully.

    Fengyuzi stares at that jade bottle and says in astonishment: Bluish Vermilion Pills, moreover there are 10 of them. Oh my, Xiao Yu, who is exactly your master? These Bluish Vermilion Pills are high-grade holy pills. Even one of them is already very precious yet you have 10 pills.

    High-grade holy pills?

    Yes, let me tell you something, even one Bluish Vermilion Pill is extremely important. When a Xiuzhenist suffers a loss of elemental energy, he can practice to replenish his power, but when his internal organs are injured, it will be very difficult for him to recover from this. Fengyuzi says emotionally: The internal organs are very weak so you can only nurture them slowly using your elemental energy to let them gradually recover on their own. But with the Bluish Vermilion Pills, it will take you just a few days to recover.

    To a Xiuzhenist, the pills that can replenish his power are not important, but the pills that can heal his internal injuries are extremely valuable.

    When a Xiuzhenists bodily functions stop working permanently, if he has reached the Dongxu stage, he can abandon his physical body to become a loose immortal, but if he has yet to reach the Dongxu stage, his soul will be destroyed, resulting in his death.

    Xiao Yu, you better keep these Bluish Vermilion Pills for yourself. Your master mustve given them to you so that they can be your lifesavers. Fengyuzi tells Qin Yu sincerely. Even though they are 10 high-grade holy pills, he is not greedy for them at all.

    Yuer, later youll probably meet some dangers on the path of practice so you must bring these Bluish Vermilion Pills along just in case. Qin De advises Qin Yu while staring at him.

    Qin Yu does not know what to say. In terms of healing injuries, is there anything that can compare with the Meteoric Tear?

    It was even able to heal such a mortal wound as a punctured heart. Given its great effectiveness at healing, how can these high-grade holy pills or top-grade holy pills possibly compare with it? Perhaps not even the legendary immortal pills can match its curing ability.

    Father, Uncle Feng, please dont worry about me. I still have some Bluish Vermilion Pills for myself. These 10 pills are for both of you. Having said so, Qin Yu takes out another jade bottle that is containing 3 other Bluish Vermilion Pills. After he opens the bottle, Qin De and Fengyuzi can smell the faint scent of the Bluish Vermilion Pills so in their hearts they believe him as well.

    Qin Yu hurriedly says: Father, this is a token of my regard for you. If you dont accept these pills, I wont be able to leave the Qian Long continent without worries.

    Leave the Qian Long continent?!?!?!

    Qin Zheng, Qin Feng and Qin De all exclaim in shock. For the moment they have forgotten the matter regarding the Bluish Vermilion Pills.

    Yes, Im going to leave the Qian Long continent. Xiao Hei and I have been ready to go on an uncertain journey and to enter the Xiuzhen world. Qin Yu says resolutely with a nod of his head. He has already thought this decision through carefully. There are simply no goals left for him on the Qian Long continent.

    So, now the only way to make his life exciting is to go on a journey that is full of dangers and opportunities.

    Qin De lets out a sigh but he then bursts out laughing: Yuer, since you returned from the Wilderness, Ive noticed that youve undergone drastic changes. This time you even killed Xiang Yang. Yes, now youre only 20 but youve already reached such a high level. Brother Feng, with Yuers achievements, he should be considered a genius in the Xiuzhen world, right?

    Fengyuzi exclaims with a nod of his head: Not only is he a genius, its hard to meet a person like him even once in 10,000 years.

    Qin De says with a nod: Thats right. He reached such a level at the age 20. The Qian Long continent is no longer challenging enough for him. Yuer shouldnt be restricted in such a small place as the Qian Long continent. I shouldve thought of this early on.

    Yuer, I approve of your decision! A person should live for himself and rush forwards with enthusiasm to reach his own goals. Ha-ha, perhaps several thousand years later, the Qin clan will also be able to have an immortal who can achieve ascension. Yuer, do you think this will come true? Qin De says laughingly while looking at Qin Yu.

    Qin Yu says with a nod: Yes, father.

    Fengyuzi however says laughingly: Have the both of you really gone mad? Do you think its so easy to achieve ascension? In the history of my school, for no one knows how many million years, there have been only 2 seniors who were able to accomplish this feat. Moreover, this is what happened a million years ago.

    But Qin De says: Youre wrong, brother Feng. Have you ever seen anyone else who was able to reach Yuers current level at the age of 20?

    Fengyuzi is startled. He then shakes his head: No, I havent.

    Thats right. Yuer has created such a miracle. Isnt it only ascension? I totally believe in my son. Qin De looks at Qin Yu, his eyes full of a fatherly love.

    Qin Yu also nods resolutely: Im very confident about myself too.

    Fengyuzi cannot help saying with a forced smile: You two are really father and son. All right, take your time admiring yourself.


    In the follow-up period of time, the 3 brothers, Qin Yu, Qin Zheng and Qin Feng, often chat with each other. Qin Zheng and Qin Feng both know that Qin Yu is going to leave after the enthronement so they make the most of this period of time talking with him a lot.

    Qin Yu usually practices meditation or spends time with his family to pass this last period of time on the Qian Long continent.

    At Fengyuzis place of residence,

    Uncle Feng, what is this? Qin Yu looks doubtfully at the slip of jade in his hand.

    Fengyuzi says with a smile: Yuer, this slip of jade contains my schools sea chart. The ocean is boundless, if you wander about aimlessly, who knows what kinds of places youll reach? You might even enter the Devil Islands by mistake and get your jindan or yuanying eaten up by other people, which will be horrible.

    Thank you, Uncle Feng. Qin Yu of course knows Fengyuzis intention when he gives him this sea chart.

    Uncle Feng, you just mentioned the Devil Islands or something. Could you tell me about the Overseas Immortal Islands? They seem to be a very complicated place. Qin Yu has become doubtful.

    Fengyuzi ponders for a while then says: Ill tell you about them carefully. Your Uncle Fengs school is called Pure Sword School. There is an immortal island called Pure Wind Island over 100,000 li away from the southern border of the Qian Long continent. The island has 2 big schools, one of which is the Pure Sword School.

    Qin Yu calmly listens to Fengyuzi.

    In fact, the Pure Wind Island is just one of the few ordinary immortal islands that are very close to the Qian Long continent. The farther from the shore an immortal island is, the larger it is and the more powerful its schools become. And no one knows how many millions of li to the south of the Qian Long continent, there is the center of the Overseas Immortal Islands -- the Penglai Immortal Region. Consisting of several hundred huge immortal islands, it has a great number of schools and tens of thousands of Xiuzhen experts Fengyuzi slowly explains.

    Im really ashamed that I have never been to this Penglai Immortal Region even though its very famous. After all its too far while Im too weak. Heaven knows how long it will take me to fly to that place. Also, there will be many dangers on the way. Perhaps before I can reach it Ill have already had an accident. Fengyuzi says with a sigh.

    An outline of the Overseas Immortal Islands quickly appears in Qin Yus mind.

    In the boundless ocean in the south, there is an immortal island over 100,000 li away from the Qian Long continent. There are also a myriad of islands in other places of the southern ocean. Quite a few of these islands have been occupied by Xiuzhen schools. And the center of the Overseas Immortal Islands -- the Penglai Immortal Region -- is located no one knows how many millions of li to the south of the Qian Long continent.

    Uncle Feng, you mentioned the Devil Islands just now. What are they? Qin Yu asks again.

    Fengyuzi says smilingly: The Devil Islands is the name of the islands occupied by Xiumoists, who are different from Xiuxianists. In order to achieve ascension, Xiumoists stop at nothing. They even dare to use vicious methods such as consuming other peoples jindans and yuanyings.

    Consuming jindans and yuanyings? Qin Yus eyes pop out of his head.

    Fengyuzi says very indignantly: Thats right. Xiumoists are so vicious. They kill other Xiuzhenists and consume other peoples jindans and yuanyings to improve their own power. They are real lowlifes.

    Hearing this Qin Yu feels deeply ashamed.

    On the way back from the Wilderness, he and Xiao Hei actually absorbed quite a few jindans. In the battle not long ago, because Xiang Yangs yuanying self-destructed, Qin Yu even complained that it was such a waste of the yuanying. But it turns out this technique of consuming jindans and yuanyings is widely used by Xiumoists.

    In general, Xiuzhen is divided into 3 main types, Xiuxian, Xiumo and Xiuyao. Xiuxian pays attention to quietude and inactivity. Xiumo cares about supreme power. Xiuyao lets not talk about Xiuyao for the moment. Xiao Yu, you must remember to run away when encountering Xiumoists. Most of them are very cruel and bloodthirsty. Itll be terrible if your jindan is eaten up by other people. Fengyuzi warns.

    Qin Yu secretly smiles: Cruel and bloodthirsty? Who knows whose jindan will be eaten up? Plus, I dont have a jindan.

    Qin Yus practice method is different from the other methods. He is not Xiuxian, Xiumo or Xiuyao.

    In the boundless southern ocean, there are islands occupied by Xiuxian schools but there are also islands occupied by Xiumo schools. Over 100 islands near the Penglai Immortal Region have even formed the center of the Devil Islands -- the Purple Flame Devilish Dungeon. It and the Penglai Immortal Region are equally well-known. These 2 powers have struggled against each other very fiercely. Fengyuzi keeps introducing.

    Qin Yu has become clear about the Overseas Immortal Islands.

    Xiao Yu, you should know that the biggest power in the boundless ocean isnt Xiuxianists or Xiumoists! Its not the Penglai Immortal Region or the Purple Flame Devilish Dungeon. Fengyuzis expression has become serious.

    Qin Yu is startled.

    The biggest power is Xiuyaoists! Fengyuzi says very affirmatively. What is the largest thing in the boundless ocean? Its not the islands, but the waters. There are various kinds of marine demonic beasts in the boundless waters. The deeper you go down into the ocean, the stronger the demonic beasts youll encounter!

    Qin Yu is astonished in his heart.

    The ocean is immense but the entire waters are the territory of demonic beasts so Xiuyaoists are indeed the greatest power here.

    The waters pressure increases with its depth. Ordinary Xiuxianists and Xiuyaoists basically cant withstand the terrifying water pressure after a depth of several to 10 km. But there are some frightening demonic beasts that can live under such high pressures.

    Xiao Yu, remember, demonic beasts in the overseas waters are extremely fearsome. The entire boundless waters are the territory of these demonic beasts. No one knows the location of their headquarters, but both the Purple Flame Devilish Dungeon and the Penglai Immortal Region have confirmed one thing -- demonic beasts are the greatest power.

    In fact, Fengyuzi has only heard about these things, but they are what every school in the Overseas Immortal Islands has been emphasizing to its disciples.

    In the depths of the ocean, there are many treasures. The deeper it is, the more treasures there are, but the water pressure increases with depth. Not even Xiuyao experts can go deeper than several tens km down into the ocean. No one can imagine how many treasures there actually are at those depths. Fengyuzis eyes glitter.

    Obviously he is imagining the treasures at the deepest parts of the ocean.

    Once I have enough power, Ill definitely dive deep into the ocean to explore it. Qin Yu cannot help making a decision.

    This nightlong talk has enabled Qin Yu to know a lot about the boundless overseas waters. In the Overseas Immortal Region, there are a great number of Xiuzhenists and Xiumoists, but the demonic beasts underwater outnumber even them.

    They can kill each other for treasures.

    The surface area of the Overseas Immortal Islands is enormous. There are even islands as large as the Chu kingdom, but these islands are a common sight in the ocean. And the Penglai Immortal Region is made up of several hundred such islands.

    It is extremely large, even larger than the whole Qian Long continent.

    The Penglai Immortal Region, the Purple Flame Devilish Dungeon and the demonic beasts unfathomably mysterious headquarters form the entire overseas Xiuzhen world. And no one knows how many treasures there are in the depths of the ocean.


    A half year later, Qin Zheng officially ascends to the throne, abolishing the Chu dynasty and creating the Qin dynasty. He becomes Qin Ming Huang. The Qin clan has discussed a lot about the name of the new dynasty. There were people who thought that it would not be a good idea to reuse the name of the Qin dynasty 1000 years before.

    In the end Qin De resolved the problem with a few words.

    True is false and false is true. In any case, our surname is Qin so its appropriate to create the Qin dynasty. Also, since weve totally controlled the 12 counties, if the Han dynasty and Ming dynasty want to fight us, lets see if they have enough power.

    Thus the decision to establish the Qin dynasty was made.

    After taking revenge, Qin De no longer wants to run about. Fengyuzi is basically an idle person too. The both of them therefore continue to practice in peace on the Qian Long continent, leaving all of the Qin dynastys important affairs to Qin Zheng.

    Qin De, Fengyuzi, Qin Ming Huang Qin Zheng, Qin Feng, and Xu Yuan have gathered in Yan City.

    Father, big brother, 2nd brother, Uncle Xu, Uncle Feng, you dont need to see me off. Qin Yu says smilingly to the close relatives before him. Xiao Hei is waving his wings on one side, seeming excited because of the journey that will happen very soon.

    Qin De takes a step forwards and says while looking at Qin Yu: Yuer the Xiuzhen world is very dangerous. Your Uncle Feng couldnt adapt to that kind of environment so he came to the Qian Long continent. You must be careful and pay a lot of attention to other people, and shouldnt treat other people with too much sincerity.

    Qin De knows his son very well. What he fears the most is that Qin Yu will be too sincere to other people only to get betrayed by them.

    Dont worry, father. I know what I should do. Qin Yu says with a nod.

    He then walks up to Qin Feng and Qin Zheng, saying: Big brother, 2nd brother, please take good care of father for me. Qin Fengs and Qin Zhengs eyes are filled with unwillingness. Even though they knew long ago that this day would come, they still find it very unbearable.

    Xiao Yu.

    Qin Feng, Qin Zheng and Qin Yu hug each other. The 3 brothers only loosen their embraces after a long time.

    Qin Yu suddenly takes a deep breath. He continuously steps backwards and says to the others: Ha-ha, its really hard to say goodbye. Farewell, father, big brother, 2nd brother, Uncle Feng, Uncle Xu. He then turns around abruptly.

    Xiao Hei, lets go! Qin Yu says loudly. Immediately afterwards, he pierces through the air. While in the sky, he takes a look at his close relatives on the ground. Then, suppressing his attachment, he speeds up, flying south.

    At the same time, an extremely resounding eagle cry rises. Xiao Hei also soars into the sky with spread wings.

    A man and an eagle head south directly this way. In only a moment, they have already become 2 black points on the southern horizon.

    Qin Yu and Xiao Heis journey into the Xiuzhen world has finally begun. What will be waiting for them?

    Book 5: The Blood-red Cave

    B5C1: Drifting

    Qin Yu and Xiao Hei fly south extremely fast, leaving cities, mountain ranges, prairies and lakes on the ground behind them one after another. A huge forest then appears before their eyes out of the blue.

    Xiao Hei, come down with me. Qin Yu suddenly uses holy sense communication.

    Xiao Hei immediately stops flying and asks doubtfully: Big brother, now we shouldnt be far from the southern waters of the Qian Long continent. Why do you want to go into this forest instead of keeping flying? He does not understand what Qin Yu wants to do.

    Ha-ha, you dont understand this, right? Smiling broadly, Qin Yu explains: Do you know the distance between the Overseas Immortal Islands and the Qian Long continent?

    I dont know, but it shouldnt be very long. Xiao Hei looks doubtfully at Qin Yu. He still does not understand what the distance between the Overseas Immortal Islands and the Qian Long continent has to do with Qin Yu going into this forest exactly.

    Qin Yu says with a smile: Let me tell you, the nearest overseas immortal island is 100-odd thousand li from here, and the Penglai Immortal Region is even millions of li away. The enormousness of this ocean is basically not something you can imagine. Since the distance is so long, if we always fly on the ocean, itll be very boring.

    Big brother, what do you mean? Xiao Hei suddenly understands a bit.

    Lets make a large ship and put it in the spatial ring. While wandering on the ocean, when we are bored, well take it out and fish, or sunbathe, or enjoy the oceans winds on it. Flying all the time will be boring, right? Qin Yu wants to make good preparations for a long-term wandering.

    As a Xiuzhenist, his lifespan is almost limitless, thus he does not care about his time. And drifting on the ocean experiencing adventures is also a form of practice.

    Xiao Hei becomes excited at once: Very good. Since this forest is so big, there must be huge trees here. Lets find some quickly. After saying, he simply does not wait for Qin Yu and dives down into the immense forest himself.

    Qin Yu also dives down with a smile.

    After entering this enormous forest, he and Xiao Hei discover that it has no traces of human presence and is thickly grassed over and wooded. Obviously this forest is a very ancient one.

    Qin Yu and Xiao Hei go through the forest extremely fast, not worrying about its so-called wild beasts in the slightest. They only need to send out their auras a little and none of those wild beasts will dare to approach them.

    Ah, theres a very thick redwood over there. Xiao Hei suddenly says using his holy sense.

    Qin Yu has also quickly detected that redwood, which is about 10-odd meters in diameter and can be considered relatively large in this ancient forest. But he says with a sigh: Too bad, there were so many big trees in the Wilderness, but we never thought about chopping down one to make a ship.

    There were no traces of human presence in the Wilderness for millions of years so those ancient trees had reached 70 to 80 m in diameter, and there were even some trees whose diameters had reached 100 m, which was simply very astonishing. This is the 1st ancient forest that Qin Yu and Xiao Hei have gone into since leaving the Wilderness, but even so those trees that have reached 100 m in diameter are nowhere to been seen.

    Big brother, this forest is still within the boundaries of the 3 big kingdoms. Even though there are no traces of human presence here, some Xiantian experts couldve gone through it. Those extremely large trees are treasures so they mustve been chopped down long ago. Xiao Hei says powerlessly.

    Qin Yu however is not willing to stop searching. A tree that is 10-odd meters in diameter is not small, but it is still far from what he wants.

    This forest is also very large. Lets keep going through it to find a bigger tree. Qin Yu makes a decision. Xiao Hei does not object to it and continues to fly extremely fast with him. As this man and this eagle travel, they use their holy senses to search carefully for an even larger tree.

    There are only a few Xiuzhenists on the whole Qian Long continent so it is extremely rare to see Xiuzhenists who use their holy senses in search of a tree like this.

    In a short while Qin Yu and Xiao Hei have already covered 100 li, during which the largest tree Qin Yu has been able to detect was only about 20 m in diameter. He and Xiao Hei therefore keep searching.

    To them, going 700 to 800 li across this forest is not considered far at all.

    Ah, Xiao Hei, theres an exceptionally large tree 6 km ahead of us. Qin Yu becomes excited.

    An exceptionally large tree? How large is it? Xiao Hei is also surprised. How large must that tree be to be able to amaze and excite Qin Yu? This forest is not one in the Wilderness so, even if there is a bigger tree, how large can it be?

    In only a short while, Qin Yu and Xiao Hei have already come close to that big tree.

    Wow, its like a huge wall. Xiao Hei says in amazement using his holy sense. Qin Yus face is also full of excitement. This dark red old tree is surrounded by sinuous branches and looks as if it is carved out of rock. Obviously it is extremely hard.

    The diameter of this old tree is even more shocking -- about 50 m --, which makes the tree look like a wall. Even though it cannot compare with some old trees in the Wilderness, a tree like this is still extremely difficult to come by outside the Wilderness.

    Good, let it be this tree. Its already thick enough. Qin Yu nods in satisfaction. The Flaming Sword then immediately flies out from his body and sends forth an indistinct and extremely long stream of stellar energy.

    This stream of stellar sword energy is 10-odd meters long. Even though the old tree is extremely hard, it is still far from being able to withstand the sword energy.

    Qin Yu smilingly points with a hand and the Flaming Sword instantly cuts through the trees base. It is 50 m in diameter but, under the power of the sword energy, it is cut off completely in just a moment. Afterwards, the huge tree falls with a loud noise, knocking down several tens other large trees.

    Whizz! Whizz! Whizz!

    The stellar sword energy easily removes the branches of the tree. This old tree is 300 to 400 m in length but an overly long tree is useless to Qin Yu so he cuts away the 200 m long part of the trunk that is thickest. He then starts making a ship carefully.

    The way he makes the ship is very simple.

    First he slices off all of the tree bark, leaving a smooth tree trunk. Having seen ships before, he cuts the trunk in half and casually picks out one part. He then carves a hole that is 30 m wide and 80 m long into it. This is the place to sleep and rest.

    Ha-ha, with some casual defensive restrictive spells, this ship will be stronger than some large ships in defense. Qin Yu laughingly sets up some defensive restrictive spells on the ship. He believes that it will not fall to pieces even when facing a hurricane.

    Xiao Hei spits out his holy awl and uses it to carve some simple patterns on the ship as decorations. A ship has been created so simply.

    Well, very good, very not bad. Xiao Hei looks at his carvings very satisfactorily.

    Qin Yu grabs this quickly-made ship. With a thought, he sucks it into his spatial ring directly. Only his Menghuan ring can contain such a large ship. As for that storage bracelet, its space is too small.

    Xiao Hei, lets go.

    Qin Yu laughs out loud and soars into the sky directly. Xiao Hei also flies up right after him. Having created a large ship, they are very excited. Making something personally step by step feels totally different from buying something.

    They immediately accelerate. Qin Yu is standing on the Flaming Sword while Xiao Hei has also sped up by several times. Even though Qin Yu is not using the Body Weapon Unification technique and Xiao Hei is not using the Passing Lightning Flashing Nine Times, their speeds are still extremely fast.

    After a half day, they finally reach the southern waters of the Qian Long continent.

    Two beams of light land on the seashore and turn into a man and an eagle. As they take a look at the endless ocean, they cannot help feeling an intense pleasure. The blue ocean is refracting the sunlight into various colors such as azure and light purple, looking really very beautiful.

    Ah, compared to this area of water, the Qian Long continent is really nothing. The difference in size between them is too great. Qin Yu cannot help saying emotionally while looking at the boundless ocean. At first sight, the ocean seems to be very calm, but who knows how many undercurrents are surging in its depths, how many demonic beasts exist in it, and how many immortal islands and devil islands there are in the distance?

    Xiao Hei is very excited as well: Wow, Xiuxianists, Xiumoists, all kinds of demonic beasts, and perhaps some treasures too, even imagining them alone makes me excited. Big brother, dont think too much, lets go.

    After saying, he spreads his wings and flies straight towards the boundless ocean. Qin Yu gives a laugh. A heroic spirit surges uncontrollably in his heart: The boundless ocean, this is the world of Xiuzhenists. His body also rushes towards the endless ocean like lightning.

    A child who is collecting shells on the beach watches a man and an eagle fly towards the boundless ocean in stupefaction. After just a moment, this man and this eagle disappear from the horizon.

    Well, my eyes mustve been dazzled. How can a human fly? And even fly so fast? The child rubs his eyes then looks around carefully. But his surroundings are still quiet, as if that man and that eagle have never appeared.

    Well, looks like my eyes were really dazzled. The child laughs then continues to play with those shells.

    Today, Qin Yu, the Qian Long continents unprecedented genius, who is comparable to a late Jindan-stage expert at the age of only 20, the younger brother of the newly-established Qin dynastys emperor, Prince Yu of the Qin dynasty, has left the Qian Long continent this way.

    In the last 20 years, he has helped the Qin clan exterminate the Xiang clan, unify the Chu kingdom and create the Qin dynasty.

    A Xiuzhenist has an almost limitless lifespan so 20 years is just like a blink of an eye. What is going to happen to him in the several decades, several centuries and several millennia afterwards?

    In the boundless ocean,

    Ha-ha, it feels so good. Qin Yu is going by treading on the surging waves, brandishing his hands between them. He is currently wearing the clothes that Lei Wei forged in the past, with a pair of pants on the lower half of his body and only a black sleeveless undershirt on his upper body. The muscles of his bodys upper half totally stand out.

    At the moment Qin Yu is full of vitality. He is treading the waves freely, looking wild like a sea god.

    Ha! He suddenly makes a wave of his hand. Many huge streams of water unexpectedly start to move around his body like the energy streams that appeared when he was practicing the Trans-Heaven 3 Diagrams in the past. However these water streams are 10 times thicker than the energy streams before and the area encircled by them is also 10 times larger.

    With the water streams moving around his body, Qin Yu is expressing his feelings wantonly.

    All of a sudden he reaches out a hand and a big fish that weighs 10-odd jin floats up. Using only telekinesis, he has caught a big fist just like that.

    Xiao Hei, prepare to roast fish.

    He says laughingly to Xiao Hei in the sky. Then, with a wave of his hand, a huge object suddenly appears on the surface of the ocean. It is none other than their large wooden ship, which is 200 m long and is 50 m wide. Defensive restrictive spells have been set up on this ship so perhaps not even one of the 3 big kingdoms ships can compare with it in defense.

    Roast fish, wow, very good. Xiao Hei dives down and lands directly on the deck.

    With a jump, Qin Yu immediately gets on board from the oceans surface. He then goes directly into the center of the ship. This ships cabin is 30 m wide, 80 m long and 10 m deep. There are many things in the cabin such as waterbeds, a grill, fishing rods, and so on, which have been taken out from Lei Mountain House.

    When wandering the universe Lei Wei enjoyed himself a lot so he naturally had these things. Qin Yu therefore has put them in the cabin of this ship.

    This grill master set up is really Qin Yu keeps praising highly. To be exact, this grill is similar to an Eight Diagrams Furnace that is used to forge weapons. It is even much more complex than an Eight Diagrams Furnace.

    If the Stellar Flame is used to roast ordinary foods directly, the foods will definitely be burnt to ashes, and therefore this special grill was made. Its various restrictive spells can alter the strength of the Stellar Flame to achieve a suitable temperature.

    Big brother, frankly, the Qian Long continents spices are much inferior to the many spices your master left behind. Xiao Hei says to Qin Yu while staring at the fish that is being roasted in the grill with glittering eyes.

    Qin Yu has to admit this point. Lei Wei indeed had many spices, some of which were even mixed up by him personally. Many foods taste much better when those spices are added to them.

    Chi chi ~~~

    The fat of the roast fish comes out all over. Xiao Hei is about to drool, but he must wait until the optimal temperature is attained.

    All right. Qin Yu cuts the fish in half directly. He and Xiao Hei each take a half of this 10-odd jin big fish then start to eat it very happily. They eat up such a large fish but their stomachs do not change at all.

    Suddenly --


    The ship shakes.

    Whats going on? Qin Yu immediately makes a sweep using his holy sense. He then bursts out laughing: These sharks unexpectedly want to destroy my ship. Too bad, its very hard. With defensive restrictive spells set up on it, this ship is really not something that these sharks can destroy.

    He suddenly gives a smile: But you have to pay a price for hitting my ship.

    Like an eagle with spread wings, he immediately flies out of the cabin. Making a push against the deck using his feet, he dives into the ocean. There are several tens sharks around the ship at the moment. Qin Yu quickly detects the leader of these sharks. With a jump he gets on this shark and grabs its fin directly. Feeling that someone is sitting on it, the shark starts to move like crazy at once, alternating between swimming underwater and jumping into the air.


    Qin Yu exerts the strength of his legs, pressing the shark to the point where it begins to cry miserably. At the same time, his stellar energy rushes through the sharks entire body. Feeling that Qin Yu is formidable, the shark stops resisting in an instant.

    This is good. Go ahead for me.

    Qin Yu rides the leading shark forwards. The other sharks follow him on one side. Xiao Hei also steers the ship to follow him on one side. Under Qin Yus control, this shiver of sharks continuously goes south. Xiao Hei then starts to fish. After all, roast fish taste really very good.

    B5C2: The underwater world of demonic beasts

    It has been a half month since the journey on the boundless ocean began. During the last half month, sometimes Qin Yu flew on the sword, sometimes he trod on the waves and sometimes he rested on the big ship. He and Xiao Hei have only come across several islands in a half month and they were merely ordinary small islands with no traces of human presence.

    It is still very far from the Overseas Immortal Islands.

    Xiao Hei, why do you want to learn angling with me? Wont it be faster if you come directly into the water and catch fish? Qin Yu lies down on the deck and enjoys the ocean winds as he pleases. But there is a fishing rod beside him. A stream of stellar energy is connecting his fingers with the fishing rod.

    As soon as there is a sign of a fish, he can easily pull it out of the water.

    A dark golden stream of energy comes out from Xiao Heis body and is attached directly to a fishing rod. Xiao Hei has unexpectedly been fishing with a rod as well. Hearing Qin Yus question, he says using his holy sense: Then why are you angling, big brother? Wont it also be faster if you come into the ocean to catch fish?

    The mood, angling is to enjoy the mood. The mood, do you understand? Qin Yu says smilingly.

    Xiao Hei uses holy sense communication: The mood, angling is to enjoy the mood! Hah, so simple, who wouldnt understand this reason? Could it be you havent noticed that Im enjoying the mood too? Xiao Hei even waves his wings proudly.

    Qin Yu does not know what to say.

    After a short while,

    The mood my arse, I havent been able to catch even a single fish. Xiao Hei becomes impatient and throws his fishing rod directly into the cabin. Then, with a shake of his wings, he dives into the ocean like an arrow that is leaving a bow. In a little while, he flies back onto the deck with each of his sharp claws holding a fish.

    Xiao Hei gloats: Big brother, take your time enjoying the mood. Ill go make some grilled fish.

    As Xiao Hei is very intelligent, after seeing Qin Yu use the grill, he has totally understood how to use it too and therefore now he is going to grill the fish himself. Qin Yu has nothing to say. Suddenly, his fishing rod shakes. He hurriedly lifts it up with a grab. With a hey sound, he pulls a fish out of the water.

    Ha-ha, such a big fish.

    Angling feels much more enjoyable than catching fish directly does. In a happy mood, Qin Yu fetches the fish and conveniently throws it straight into a vat that is specifically used to store fish in the cabin. Xiao Hei looks at the fish then looks at Qin Yu.

    Hmm why cant I catch fish with a fishing rod? He really does not want to accept this. Of course, he will not tell Qin Yu about this thought. Instead, he feigns a disdainful expression: Isnt it just catching a fish with a rod? Whats there to be proud of? How can it possibly be as fast as me grasping fish?

    Hearing Xiao Heis voice through his holy sense, Qin Yu cannot help getting astounded: Xiao Hei, Im not proud of this at all. Could it be youre jealous of me?

    Luckily Qin Yu can chat with Xiao Hei. Otherwise he would only be able to pass time by practicing. This one day, after enjoying a sumptuous dinner, Qin Yu and Xiao Hei begin to meditate and rest in the cabin.

    It is already dark. The ocean looks terrifying in the dark. With apparently not the slightest amount of light in sight, the only thing that is surrounding them is the surging ocean.

    However, to Qin Yu and Xiao Hei, the billowing ocean is not a danger at all because it is actually very simple for them to tread on the waves, not to mention such an easy thing to do as flying.

    The inside of the cabin is very quiet at the moment. Qin Yu and Xiao Hei are slowly practicing. An indistinct light silvery nebula is flickering in Qin Yus vicinity while various flashes of lightning are moving around on the surface of Xiao Heis body.

    Suddenly --

    Qin Yus ears slightly move. He immediately opens his eyes and jumps onto the deck from inside the cabin. Staring south into the distance, he cannot help getting startled: Good Heavens, so high, so big!

    Big brother, whats happened? Xiao Hei has also come out of the cabin. As soon as he takes a look south, he is stupefied too.

    He only sees huge waves that are 100 m high moving north nonstop in the south like a large army. There are even frightening cyclones behind the waves. Those cyclones are covering a very large area. At least Qin Yu can see at a glance that several hundred li in the south is full of cyclones.

    Big brother, should we go through the waves to have some fun, eh? Xiao Hei says via his holy sense.

    Looking at the huge waves in the distance, Qin Yu cannot help feeling his heart beating faster. He says audaciously: All right, but this ship has to be put away first. If it gets lost in such big waves, itll be very hard to find it back. He then sucks the ship into his spatial ring at once.

    Whoa ~~~ lets surf! With a shake of his wings, Xiao Hei pierces through the air directly, rushing towards those huge waves along the surface of the ocean. He then spreads his wings and cuts straight through the waves very wildly like a knife.

    Xiao Hei, wait for me.

    Qin Yu also rushes towards those endless billows on the surface of the water. One huge wave after another is pushing north unceasingly. Eventually they crash into Qin Yu. With a bang, Qin Yu breaks through a billow directly, but it is immediately followed up by the 2nd billow.

    When a huge wave that is over 100 m high strikes down, it creates a really deafening noise.

    Qin Yu can only feel that he is being engulfed in explosions. However, Xiao Heis voice rises in his mind through holy sense communication: Big brother, youre too slow. Quickly catch up with me.

    Dont get cocky, brat. Qin Yus entire body sometimes goes through the waves like a flash, sometimes flutters on the tops of the billows like a butterfly, and sometimes stands on the billows like a sea god. He is amusing himself as he pleases. He and Xiao Hei continue to go south for an indeterminately long period of time while the billows keep rushing north. They have totally come into the middle of the billows. Suddenly --

    Qin Yu looks southwards in stupefaction.

    Good Heavens.

    He finally knows the main culprit that has been creating these endless billows. Those cyclones are strong but they still cannot shake him and Xiao Hei up. However, he finds the main cause of those immense cyclones and endless billows somewhat difficult to face head-on.

    Big brother, whats that?

    Xiao Hei has flown up to Qin Yu. Both of them are looking southwards. At the moment, a huge maelstrom is spinning nonstop several tens li to the south of their location. The sky above the maelstrom is filled with dark clouds, which seem to be touching the oceans surface, and various thunderbolts are striking down continuously from them.

    This enormous maelstrom keeps absorbing the thunderbolts from the sky and even creates a huge tornado above it. That sky-high tornado in turn has been causing the cyclones within a several hundred li radius of the maelstrom. Even though Qin Yu is very far from the tornado, he dares to confirm that he cannot resist the power of its rotation.

    Big brother, what should we do? Xiao Hei seems not certain about being able to handle it either.

    One man and one eagle only stand on the waves, looking at the terrifying maelstrom and tornado in the distance.

    Qin Yu then opens his mouth, saying: Id like to beat this tornado, but I dont want to become a toy for it. Once were pulled into it, well definitely be spun to the point of dizziness then get sucked in by that maelstrom.

    Then we Xiao Hei looks at Qin Yu.

    Qin Yus face relaxes into a smile: Lets dive down. Its said that the underwater world is the territory of demonic beasts. Shouldnt we experience it a bit? Xiao Hei of course has no objection to this. Immediately afterwards, a man and an eagle dive down into the water.

    As they go down, the water pressure gradually increases.

    Xiao Hei, youre really formidable. They say that water isnt suitable for birds to go into but you seem not to be affected by it at all. Qin Yu says using his holy sense.

    Xiao Hei says: Big brother, the underwater world is only unsuitable for ordinary birds. Jindan-stage birds have already become Xiuyaoists so they naturally can go underwater. Plus, Im not only a Jindan demonic beast, but also an extraordinary demonic beast.

    Since Xiao Hei and Qin Yu have talked to each other a lot, he also knows that he is not an ordinary demonic beast. How can ordinary demonic beasts possibly compare with him, who cannot transform into a human after going through the 4-in-9 Heavenly Tribulation and, moreover, possesses hereditary memories?

    Both Qin Yu and Xiao Hei have very strong bodies so the water pressure does not affect them much.

    Its very quiet under the water indeed. They dive down 1000 m without taking a break. At the moment, it is very quiet at a depth of 1000 m in the ocean. Various multicolored fish are swimming. Seemingly not afraid of Qin Yu and Xiao Hei in the slightest, they swim past them.

    There are also small fish whose entire bodies radiate rays of light. Fish are the most commonly seen kind of animal in the ocean and Qin Yu and Xiao Hei usually encounter densely populated shoals of fish. But once in a while, they see other kinds of underwater animals as well.

    Qin Yu and Xiao Hei keep diving down to a depth of 2000 m.

    What a large whale. It should be several hundred years old. Looking at an over 100 m long huge whale that is swimming in the distance, Qin Yu cannot help getting startled inwardly. However, Xiao Hei beside him suddenly becomes excited.

    Many flashes of lightning spread out from his body.

    Qin Yu only feels his body get a shock. It turns out some flashes have reached him.

    Xiao Hei, what are you doing? He immediately looks doubtfully at Xiao Hei, who however says in excitement via holy sense communication: Big brother, this whale has a lot of life essence. Theres a method for absorbing blood and flesh in my hereditary memories.

    9 flashes of lightning then shoot out from the surface of Xiao Heis body and hit different parts of that huge whale squarely. With a miserable cry, that whale begins to shrink at a shocking speed. Various streams of blood essence continuously flow into Xiao Heis body along the 9 flashes of lightning.

    Qin Yus eyes pop out of his head.

    In just a short while, the blood essence of a 100 m long whale has been gobbled up completely. What that is left of the whale is only a layer of skin and its bones. Xiao Hei has just absorbed a whale but his stomach has unexpectedly remained unchanged. Qin Yu cannot imagine where so much blood essence of that 100 m long whale has gone.

    Wow, it felt really good to refine the blood essence and absorb the life essence of a Xiantian level whale. In terms of life essence, it wasnt inferior to an ordinary Jindan demonic beast. Xiao Hei praises highly.

    Qin Yu is almost speechless.

    Xiao Hei, that whale was so big, how was it able to go down your stomach? He looks at Xiao Hei.

    Xiao Hei however says: Big brother I didnt eat it. I only absorbed its blood essence and refined its life essence. But absorbing blood essence and refining life essence are a special skill. According to my hereditary memories, not many demonic beasts can absorb the essence of flesh and blood like me.

    Qin Yu has nothing to say.

    Not many demonic beasts can do this? No kidding? The Xiuzhen books he has read talk about demonic-beast-related matters, and according to them, demonic beasts are only said to be able to absorb jindans and yuanyings, and no one has ever heard of a demonic beast that can absorb the essence of flesh and blood.

    Big brother, do you want to learn it? I can teach you if you want. Xiao Hei says to Qin Yu.

    Qin Yu is startled.

    Ha-ha just kidding, this method of absorbing flesh and blood is only suitable for me. Also, it can only be executed with my Dark Lightning. Xiao Hei says using his holy sense. Absorbing other demonic beasts flesh and blood is not something an ordinary demonic beast can do.

    Only some unusual demonic beasts can have such a special skill.

    A divine beast Hong Luan cannot use such a skill, but this does not mean that Xiao Hei is more formidable than a Hong Luan. A blood-red anaconda is not a divine beast but it can absorb flesh and blood. Xiao Hei having such a special skill only means that he is unusual.

    All right, lets keep going down. We havent seen any formidable demonic beasts until now. Xiao Hei says smilingly via his holy sense.

    He then continues to dive down with Xiao Hei. On the way Xiao Hei absorbs 3 huge carnivores successively then stops. This is already his limit of absorption and he has to digest what he has taken in.

    At a depth of 3000 to 4000 m, Qin Yu eventually discovers the 1st Jindan-stage demonic beast -- a blue shelled black turtle. As soon as that blue shelled black turtle sees him and Xiao Hei, it transforms into a human and goes away extremely fast at once, seemingly scared.

    Qin Yu and Xiao Hei look at that fleeing blue shelled black turtle with eyes popping.

    Big brother, whats going on? Why did he run away? We didnt want to kill him. Xiao Hei becomes doubtful. Just now he even tried to communicate with that blue shelled black turtle in a friendly manner using his holy sense.

    Qin Yu also shakes his head.

    He and Xiao Hei keep going down to a depth of nearly 5000 m. There are many demonic beasts at this depth. Sometimes they encounter a demonic beast, but as soon as a demonic beast that is weak notices them, it immediately runs away. The strangest thing is those weak demonic beasts unexpectedly do not flee when encountering strong demonic beasts.

    It seems those weak demonic beasts are only afraid of Qin Yu and Xiao Hei.

    This is strange, very strange.

    Ha-ha, where are those 2 fellas from? It looks like they dont know any rules. I bet they wont live more than a half day. A late Jindan demonic beast in the distance says to another demonic beast. At this moment, both of them transform into humans.

    These 2 demonic beasts do not avoid Qin Yu and Xiao Hei either. What they are saying via holy sense communication is even rising in Qin Yus and Xiao Heis minds.

    A half day? 2 foreign blokes, I bet theyll die within 2 hours. The other demonic beast in human form says disdainfully.

    Qin Yu and Xiao Hei exchange a look. They both find this strange. What is actually going on?

    The others can bugger off! These 2 fellas are mine. Suddenly a huge holy sense spreads out. The voice of that holy senses owner rises in the minds of all the other demonic beasts, and even of Qin Yu and Xiao Hei. Those few humanoid demonic beasts go away in an instant.

    No good.

    Qin Yu has realized that the situation is not good thanks to his holy sense. But it is already too late. In just a moment, 10-odd huge blue octopuses come at him and Xiao Hei from all sides, surrounding them. There is no way for them to escape. These blue octopuses have all unexpectedly reached the Jindan stage.

    Ha-ha The voice a moment ago rises again. A huge red octopus appears. This one is 4 to 5 times bigger than the other 10-odd octopuses and has a much more terrifying aura. Its 8 tentacles are like aquatic dragons, looking very frightening.

    Qin Yus and Xiao Heis faces change color at once.

    That red octopus looks at them with blazing eyes, which flash with greediness!

    End of b5c2.

    B5C3: Mortal danger

    Qin Yus and Xiao Heis faces have become very unpleasant to look at.

    There are currently 16 blue octopuses surrounding them altogether. 12 of these octopuses are even in a formation. Various streams of demonic elemental energy have enfolded them in the center of the formation like a perfect net.

    12 Gates Encircling Formation. Qin Yus heart skips a beat.

    The 12 Gates Encircling Formation is no profound formation but the frightening thing is that its users at the moment are 12 Jindan stage octopuses. Octopuses have huge bodies and also, in general, extremely great amounts of demonic elemental energy. Even though these octopuses are only at the Jindan stage, they are much more fearsome than ordinary demonic beasts of the same power level.

    When 12 Jindan stage octopuses join forces, even if without the enhancing effect of a formation, the sum of their personal Jindan-stage power alone will not be something that Qin Yu and Xiao Hei can defeat. Even worse, their power is being amplified by the formation.

    I never thought wed get stuck in this place right after leaving home. Qin Yu cannot help forcing a smile inwardly.

    During this period of time, it has been very relaxing for him and Xiao Hei to drift and fool around on the ocean. However, he has only been on the surface of the ocean before. Now that he has come into contact with the real world of demonic beasts underwater, he knows that the path of Xiuzhen is not so easy to walk at all.

    No wonder Fengyuzi has never dared to enter the ocean and said that the most fearsome power in the ocean is the underwater demonic beasts.

    Big brother, what now? Xiao Hei hurriedly asks.

    Qin Yu quickly tries to come up with a solution, but seeing that big formation, he is speechless.

    A formation arranged by 12 Jindan stage octopuses is really not something they, a man and an eagle, can breach.

    Qin Yus mind becomes ruthless: I wont let whoever wants to trouble me get off scot-free. Even though he is sincere to his friends, one must remember that he used to be an assassin and therefore is really not soft-hearted.

    Big brother, 16 Jindan demonic beasts, and the 4 that arent in the formation have reached the late Jindan stage. But that red octopus is the most fearsome one. It should be at the Yuanying stage. Xiao Heis voice has become ice-cold and is no longer as playful as it used to be.

    Since we cant run, prepare to fight.

    The muscle power in the depths of Qin Yus entire body seems to be wakened up. He is going to go all out no matter what, because he is really not a coward who will be easy meat for other people. The Flaming Sword and Flaming Gloves are his most powerful weapons.

    One man and one eagle lock their holy senses firmly onto the opponents in their surroundings. They do not dare to relax their concentration a little bit and is ready to attack at any moment.

    Both of them can totally feel that this is a dangerous situation.

    A mortal danger!

    There are 12 Jindan stage octopuses in a 12 Gates Encircling Formation and 4 other late Jindan demonic beasts in its surroundings. At the same time, there is even a Yuanying stage red octopus, whose raging aura is being sent out nonstop.

    Suddenly, the red octopus transforms into a human with a turn of his body.

    He is now 2 m tall and dressed in a red robe, which is very large and seems to cover him in it completely. There is a faint smile on the mouth corners of this man, whose real form is the red octopus, at the moment.

    Taking a greedy glance at Xiao Hei, he suddenly bursts out laughing: Ha-ha who wouldve thought a Jindan stage bird would come into the ocean? Oh my, this is really suicide. Birds are weakened quite a lot under the water. Im Sang Mo. Prepare to be killed by me.

    Xiao Hei stares at Sang Mo with his glittering sharp eyes. His aura is not weaker than his opponents a bit.

    Sang Mo then looks at Qin Yu. As soon as he sees him, his eyes brighten: Ah, this is unexpectedly a Xiuxianist. Im really very lucky. Xiuxianists jindans and flesh are very pure. Absorbing them will be a real pleasure.

    Like a womanizer who has seen a beauty, this octopus called Sang Mo becomes very excited upon seeing Qin Yu. His saliva seems to be about to come out of his mouth.

    Oh? You said Im a Xiuxianist? Qin Yu asks laughingly.

    Under the current situation, Qin Yu still does not seem nervous in the slightest, nor does he hurry to flee. Instead, he has even asked Sang Mo a question.

    Sang Mo says in a friendly manner as if he has seen a lamb: Oh, my delicacy, I can feel that your aura is different from a demonic beasts. You must be a human. Moreover, the aura that your power gives off

    Sang Mo, who is covered in a red robe, suddenly says in a resounding voice: is burning hot. That blazing aura is so pure! Most Xiumoists auras are corrosive, evil and impure. Perhaps only the energy of top Xiumo schools disciples can be pure, but how can that kind of top school possibly have such a stupid disciple as you, who have even gone into the ocean? He is not worried at all at the moment.

    Within several tens thousand li of this place is his territory. Even if other experts came, they would not be able to compete against him, or else they would violate the rules. And once the rules are violated, then

    Therefore Sang Mo is not worried a bit.

    Qin Yu slightly frowns.

    He remembers clearly that after he and Xiao Hei dived into the ocean, as soon as weak demonic beasts saw them, they ran away, but strong demonic beasts bet on the time of their deaths. All of these demonic beasts seemed to be able to quickly spot that he and Xiao Hei were outsiders.

    Diving into the ocean is stupid? Why? He acts the fool. Moreover, he really does not know the reason of this.

    Looks like youre really very nave. But a man who dies unwillingly has very chewy flesh. I like to eat that kind of flesh the most. So, I wont tell you tell you the reason. Ha-ha just prepare to die an unwilling death.

    Sang Mos sharp laughter comes out from inside the red robe. He then makes a wave of his hand.

    Father, Ive never eaten a Xiuxianist. Tut-tut, I really want to get a taste of him. Could you give me just a leg? A late Jindan-stage blue octopus on one side, which has turned into an evil-looking young man, says to Sang Mo.

    After smacking his lips a couple of times, Sang Mo says unwillingly: You little brat. Alright, Ill give you a leg. He is somewhat indulgent towards his son.

    That evil-looking young man becomes excited at once: This is really too good. Father, give me that eagle too, okay?

    Sang Tu! Sang Mos face darkens. A red beam of light shoots out from his eyes. What I hate the most is the insatiable type. Though youre my son, Ive already given you a leg of a Xiuxianist, if you keep talking nonsense, dont blame me for being ruthless.

    Immediately Sang Tu no longer dares to say anything. Once Sang Mo gets ruthless, even though he will not kill him, it will still be possible that he will throw him in jail for a hundred years or so.

    Sang Mo looks at those 12 octopuses in the formation and gently makes a wave of his hand.

    Qin Yu and Xiao Hei, who are being surrounded by the formation, have activated all of their power, ready to launch their most powerful attacks anytime.

    Big brother. Xiao Heis voice rises in Qin Yus mind.

    With his entire body emitting clack sounds, Qin Yu also uses holy sense communication: Xiao Hei, there must be no mistakes in this fight. Prepare to go all out. After breaking out of the formation, we must rely on our speeds to run away. Even if only one of us can escape, thatll be enough. He is not confident that both he and Xiao Hei will escape.

    Screw them. Lets go all out. Even if I have to die, Ill take some of them with me. Xiao Hei has become furious.

    Suddenly --

    Netting. Sang Mo gives an order with a very brilliant smile.

    The 12 blue octopuses instantly channel their demonic elemental energy into their formation. That formation unexpectedly forms a net of energy, which comes straight at Qin Yu and Xiao Hei, trying to tie them up. At the same time, the 12 blue octopuses follow the net closely and attack them together.

    These octopuses also know very well that, while the 12 Gates Encircling Formation is formidable in surrounding people, its offensive power is ordinary.

    Perhaps the joint force of 12 brats alone is enough to handle that Xiuxianist and that eagle. By now Sang Mo has already planned ahead for everything, what is there for him to worry about? He is even a Yuanying-stage demonic beast and, moreover, an octopus, whose offense is extremely powerful.

    Sang Mo is much more formidable than Xiang Yang even though both of them are early Yuanying stage experts.

    A divine beast can easily kill 10 Xiuxianists who are at the same power level as it is. Sang Mo is not a divine beast, but he must be able to deal with 2 to 3 Xiuxianists of his power level.

    Xiao Hei!

    Qin Yu suddenly shouts loudly. At the same time, the Flaming Sword appears in his hand. He makes a slash at the energy net with it, but somehow the net unexpectedly is not cut open. However, Xiao Hei, who was shouted to by Qin Yu a moment ago, takes a swipe with an eagle claw.


    The energy net is shattered. Its energy scatters all around.

    Chirp ~~

    An extremely resounding eagle cry comes out from Xiao Heis mouth. Concurrently with that, he shoots up with a movement of his wings. An octopus gently swings its 8 huge long tentacles downwards and unexpectedly rushes up like a flash. At the same time --

    It sweeps its tentacles, which are as thick as buckets, ferociously at Xiao Hei like huge whips. That octopuss 8 tentacles are very powerful. Xiao Heis eyes glitter --


    2 flashes of lightning shoot out directly from his eyes and hit that octopuss body. That octopus immediately gets a shock, but when Xiao Hei wants to run away, 5 to 6 other octopuses have already stood all around him.

    Each of them has 8 tentacles as thick as buckets. Several tens such very nimble tentacles have completely surrounded Xiao Hei, leaving him no way out.

    In an unavoidable fight, the brave one wins. Its time to go all out!

    Qin Yu clenches his teeth. His entire body turns into a whirlwind.


    Immediately after a loud shout by him, a miserable cry is heard. 3 tentacles have been cut off. Qin Yu is holding the Flaming Sword in a hand. Because this high-grade holy weapon is filled with stellar sword energy, even if the tentacle were more formidable, they would still not be able to withstand its attacks.

    Sang Mo, who is watching the fight from a distance, gives several continuous cold laughs: 3rd bro, you go play with him a bit.

    Yes, big brother.

    There are 4 late Jindan stage blue octopuses beside Sang Mo at the moment. One of them is his son and the others 3 are his brothers. He already noticed long ago that this man and this eagle had not reached the Yuanying stage.

    Cut off my tentacles, die.

    A sharp voice rises in Qin Yus mind through holy sense communication. The octopus whose 3 tentacles were severed by Qin Yu a moment ago is brandishing its other 5 tentacles like crazy. At the same time, a black air stream suddenly rushes out from it. In an instant, the air stream has already covered several hundred meters.


    Qin Yu holds his breath at once, but that black poisonous air unexpectedly can enter his body through his pores. In just a moment, Qin Yu feels a numbing sensation in the places that have been permeated into by it. He immediately channels his stellar energy forcefully, stopping all of the poisonous air.


    When he has just hurriedly stopped the poisonous air, a terrifyingly powerful force smashes into his waist squarely. His whole body is sent flying uncontrollably. At the same time, several tentacles continuously hit him with loud bangs, basically giving him no time to adjust to the situation. He is smashed back and forth like a sandbag.

    Using a Flaming Glove, Qin Yu violently makes a grab at a tentacle and tears it apart directly. Then, making use of the force, he dodges to one side with a swaying movement of his body to get a peaceful moment. Blood is oozing from his mouth. He spits the blood inside his mouth out, his eyes glittering with coldness.

    Screw you, a bunch of eight-armed bastards.

    Qin Yus body is very strong and has been trained to the point where it is comparable to holy weapons. In addition to that, the clothes he is wearing can absorb more than half of the offensive force, so he has not suffered any serious injuries. By now Xiao Hei has also been surrounded by 7 or 8 octopuses.

    The number of octopuses surrounding Qin Yu starts to increase. Their tentacles are swung at him nonstop. Sometimes there is even demonic elemental energy moving around on the tentacles.

    There are too many tentacles. With a shake of his body, he evades one wave of attacks, but it is immediately followed up by the smashes of 6 or 7 tentacles. The octopuses frightening demonic elemental energy keeps surging forth bombarding him as well. For the moment Qin Yu is like a small fish in a net.

    His holy sense has been expanded to the utmost. He is totally aware of the overall situation.

    Xiao Hei is currently also in a tight corner. His flashes can only numb these demonic beasts for a while at best. His Flaming Lightning is capable of killing one demonic beast, but how can he possibly shoot out several streams of Flaming Lightning? Even though he has other special skills, all of them require him to put his life on the line to execute.

    That Yuanying demonic beast hasnt got into action yet. If I dont go all out again, therell be no hope of escaping. The corners of Qin Yus eyes slightly tremble. His eyes also begin to redden. In just a moment, the energy inside his body has reached its limit.

    Xiao Hei, get ready to use the Passing Lightning Flashing Nine Times.

    Qin Yus voice suddenly rises in Xiao Heis mind. Hearing this, Xiao Hei however says using his holy sense: Big brother, I'm being surrounded by several tens tentacles. How can I use the Passing Lightning Flashing Nine Times? He is deeply distressed. But, as soon as he finishes saying, a scene that shocks him takes place.


    Seeing that scene, Xiao Hei totally understands that Qin Yu is using the Stellar Field. The stellar energy, which is moving extremely fast, forms a huge nebula around Qin Yu, increasing the speed of his entire body by almost 10 times in an instant.

    Break, break, break!!!

    His body moves like a flash. He simply does not attack Sang Mo. Instead, he rushes towards Xiao Hei. Using the Flaming Sword, he cuts off the tentacles that get on his way like crazy, totally disregarding their smashes on his body.

    Even though blood spurts from the severed tentacles, it still cannot block his vision. He stares at Xiao Hei, shouting loudly: Xiao Hei, run!

    After this one act by Qin Yu, the original 10-odd octopuses have become totally confused. Xiao Hei immediately comes to his senses. He performs the Passing Lightning Flashing Nine Times technique, rushing upwards extremely fast. Following this, Qin Yu is ready to run for his life on his flying sword too.

    Suddenly --


    A bulky tentacle smashes into his body squarely with a terrifying force that is much more powerful than those of the previous attacks. Qin Yus entire body gets a shock as if struck by lightning. Blood spouts from his mouth like water.

    Big brother!!! With a shake of his wings, Xiao Hei unexpectedly rushes back.

    End of b5c3.

    B5C4: Goodbye, Xiao Hei!

    Humph, you 2 even want to run away? A huge red octopus is floating on one side of Qin Yu. While the other blue octopuses have tentacles that are over 10 m long, this red octopus has shocking tentacles that are 40 to 50 m long.

    With a light flashing on its body, the red octopus turns into a human again.

    Tut-tut, taking a smash by me without dying, you unexpectedly have some skills. Sang Mo looks mockingly at Qin Yu. At this moment, the other octopuses transform into humans too. Just now so many of them got their tentacles cut off by Qin Yu, but after turning into humans, their 4 limbs are totally undamaged.

    A trait of these octopuses is that their severed tentacles can still regrow. This has nothing to do with their power levels and is just a characteristic of the octopus family. By contrast, once a divine beast Dragon Rocky lion gets a limb cut off, unless it can achieve ascension, this limb will never grow back to normal.

    3rd bro, just now I let you get into action but who wouldve thought you wouldnt even be able to touch him? Sang Mo is very dissatisfied.

    That 3rd brother says in a terrified manner at once: Big brother, it couldnt be helped. A moment ago, when I was ready for action, that Xiuzhenists speed suddenly increased by over 10 times. He was terrifyingly fast so I simply couldnt catch up with him. Luckily you eventually intervened.

    Sang Mo says with a humph sound: Forget it. That brats speed is indeed strangely fast. In the end I had to rely on my true form plus the length of my tentacle to overtake him. In terms of body speed, Im equal to him at most.

    Qin Yu however is secretly astonished.

    Just now he was using the Stellar Field. Had it been a normal situation, he simply would not have been able to match Sang Mos speed.

    It looks like its really extremely hard to escape. Qin Yu keeps considering in his mind, totally ignoring his bodys injuries.

    Qin Yu has been injured very badly, but thanks to the various clear streams that are moving through his whole body nonstop, he is recovering at an astonishing speed. He believes that it will not take long for him to recover completely from the bodily injuries. However, he is still amazed by Sang Mos offensive force.

    Big brother. Xiao Hei rushes to Qin Yus side, patting Qin Yus back with his wings.

    Qin Yu turns around and takes a look at Xiao Hei. His face is full of anger.

    Xiao Hei, why havent you run? Why?!?!?! Qin Yu stares at Xiao Hei and rebukes using his holy sense. There is only anger in his heart at the moment. Despite being stared at by Qin Yu this way, Xiao Hei says: Big brother, if you cant run, well die together.

    Stupid!!! Qin Yu suddenly scolds with a shout.

    Xiao Hei is startled.

    Qin Yus voice rises seriously in Xiao Heis mind through holy sense communication: Remember, one of use must escape no matter what. Even if you want to die with me, you must wait until after taking revenge for me. There is a note of fierceness in his voice.

    He has never admitted defeat since age 8. What is ones greatest enemy? It is himself!

    Since the age of 8, Qin Yu has overcome himself time after time. He has never given up no matter what. As long as there is a glimmer of hope, he will never stop fighting. He is not afraid of death. What he is afraid of is to die such a pointless death.

    Ha-ha He suddenly turns his face upwards, laughing out loud.

    Sang Mo says coldly: Why are you laughing?

    I laughed at myself being too stupid. The look in his eyes becomes blank. The pictures of what he has gone through for the last 20 years seem to flash by his eyes one after another. Id been drifting on the ocean in high spirits, ready to enjoy the Xiuzhen worlds hair-raising experiences, but then I dived into the ocean out of ignorance to explore the underwater world of demonic beasts. Ive got a taste of its horrors. Pity this is perhaps the last time Ive had this hair-raising feeling.

    Qin Yu says with a sigh.

    Xiao Hei however secretly becomes suspicious. He knows very well that even in a dangerous situation Qin Yu will definitely keep on fighting till the end. But why is he talking in such a disheartened manner to the enemy? Xiao Heis intuition tells him that --

    Something is going on!

    Youre very ignorant indeed. Not even Xiumoists and Xiuxianists dare to go deep into this boundless ocean at will. Only some high-level Xiuxianists or Xiumoists will dare to dive down. Even so, theyll leave the deep parts very quickly.

    Sang Mo is sure that the Xiuxianist before him is seriously injured. A Xiuxianist must be extremely lucky to be able to survive an all-out swing of one of his true forms tentacles. In the beginning, he was even worried that Qin Yus body would be smashed into pieces.

    At the moment, seeing Qin Yu so demoralized, Sang Mo naturally becomes arrogant.

    The internal injuries have healed 90%. Its already almost enough. Qin Yu however is secretly calculating in his mind. Using his holy sense, he has located all of the opponents in his surroundings. After another mental simulation of his plan, he decides that there are no problems with it.

    Qin Yu turns around, taking a look at Xiao Hei.

    As Xiao Hei sees the look in Qin Yus eyes, his heart cannot help skipping a beat. He knows that Qin Yu has made a decision.

    Big brother, what do you want to do? Say it. Quickly tell me. He says hurriedly.

    Qin Yu says resolutely through his holy sense: Xiao Hei, remember, if another opportunity to escape arises, you must grasp it. You must run away no matter what. Even if only one of us can escape, thatll be enough. The one wholl escape must take revenge for the other. If both of us can get away, thatll be great. But if neither of us can escape, well have to take some of them with us.

    Xiao Hei is startled. He can feel Qin Yus determination to risk his life.

    Xiao Hei started to live with Qin Yu not long after he was born. A special telepathy developed between them long ago, which has since even enabled them to sense each others sentiments. It is really very mysterious.

    Dont worry, big brother, I wont disappoint you.

    Suddenly --

    An eagle cry rises. At the same time, a frightening force surges forth from Xiao Heis body. He performs an act of spitting and a stream of Flaming Lightning shoots at Sang Mo extremely fast from his mouth. This stream of Flaming Lightning is different from those in the past because there is a mass of Dark Lightning in its center.

    Childs play.

    Sang Mo makes a wave with a sleeve disdainfully. A red ribbon flies out from inside the sleeve and hits Xiao Heis stream of Flaming Lightning directly, which unexpectedly blazes all of a sudden. In just a moment, it has already burnt the ribbon up.

    Sang Mos face changes color.

    Big brother, quickly run. Xiao Heis voice rises in Qin Yus mind.

    Qin Yus face changes color. Xiao Hei has unexpectedly acted earlier than he can. Too bad he knows that Xiao Heis plan is too simple, so simple that it has almost no chance of success. But he will not let Xiao Heis planning go to waste.


    He stands on his flying sword, rushing south extremely fast.

    Want to run?

    2 late Jindan-stage octopuses brandish their 16 tentacles, blocking up the spaces in front and on one side of him. Well prepared, the other 2 late Jindan-stage octopuses have also completely blocked his other possible escape routes.

    These octopuses prefer eating the body of a Xiuxianist to eating an eagle. Moreover, just now Qin Yu severed quite a few tentacles so they have a much deeper hatred for him than for Xiao Hei.

    However, the stream of Flaming Lightning Xiao Hei shot has arrived at Sang Mos face.

    With a fierce yell, Sang Mo suddenly turns into a huge red octopus. Various golden rays of light are unexpectedly flickering on his 40 to 50 m long tentacles. Taking a careful look, one will see that those tentacles are being covered in a holy-class suit of armor.


    Carrying a terrifyingly great amount of demonic elemental energy, those tentacles ruthlessly smash into that stream of Flaming Lightning, which subsequently disintegrates with a boom. But that flash of Dark Lightning unexpectedly flows to the surface of the holy weapon outside the tentacles like a liquid.

    Chi chi ~~~

    In only a short while, that holy suit of armor has been corroded. Sang Mo feels various acute pains at once. He instantly controls his internal demonic elemental energy to resist that strange dark flash of lightning, which is intensely corrosive.

    Neither of you can run!

    A deep voice that contains an extreme anger rises in Qin Yus and Xiao Heis minds through holy sense communication. Eight 40 to 50 m long tentacles sweep all around Xiao Hei like huge anacondas. A raging power is surging through each of the tentacles.

    Big brother. Xiao Hei looks at the 8 tentacles encircling him then looks at Qin Yu, who is being surrounded by 4 huge late Jindan-stage octopuses, but he does not know what to say.

    Qin Yus eyes flash with a hint of amusement. Even though it disappears like a flash, Xiao Hei is totally certain that he just saw a hint of amusement in Qin Yus eyes. It must have been caused by the success of his plan. Xiao Hei cannot help getting stupefied inwardly.

    Humph ~~~ you unexpectedly dared to destroy a middle-grade holy suit of armor of mine. Im going to skin you alive then suck up all of your blood and shatter your soul. Sang Mos deep voice rises in Qin Yus and Xiao Heis minds.

    Xiao Hei makes a careful comparison between Sang Mos power and his own. In the end he finds out that even if he uses a desperate special skill, he will still be unable to defeat this early Yuanying-stage demonic beast, which is even 3 times as strong as Xiang Yang.

    However, at the moment Qin Yu --

    Very good, this is the right moment. A faint cold smile appears on the corners of his mouth. His holy sense and attention are totally locked onto that Sang Tu, who is also none other than Sang Mos son. At this moment, seemingly caring about his fathers business, Sang Tu unexpectedly turns his head to take a look.

    The moment he looks away --

    Meteor Strike!

    Qin Yus entire body starts to spin. His hands are holding the Flaming Sword. His stellar energy begins to rotate according to a strange orbit. In only a moment, his whole body turns into an awl and the tip of the awl is the Flaming Sword.

    Sang Tu!

    Another late Jindan-stage octopus has realized what is going on, but Qin Yu is simply too fast for him to stop. He only has enough time to tell the other demonic beasts at the scene through holy sense communication and, therefore, they are also aware of what is happening.

    Sang Tu! As Sang Mo takes a look, he only sees an indistinct spinning awl with the color of starlight directly shatter the head of the true form of his son, Sang Tu. A golden shaft of light then shoots straight southwards.

    Sang Mo knows very well that that golden shaft of light is none other than a jindan!

    Whose jindan is it?


    Sang Tus body falls onto the ground with a loud sound. Receiving such a fatal blow from Qin Yu while totally unprepared, he has died instantly. In fact, even if he had been prepared, he would not have been able to withstand that all-out strike.

    Demonic beasts value their offspring even more than humans do.

    Sang Mo is merciless and frosty but he has been very nice to his son. It was only because he killed some demonic beasts letting his son absorb their jindans that his son was able to reach the late phase of the Jindan stage and match his several brothers in power.

    Ah ~~~~

    A sharp deafening sound spreads out in all directions like waves. At the same time, with a violent downward shake of his 8 huge tentacles, Sang Mo immediately pierces through the water, chasing after Qin Yu like lightning.

    Xiao Heis eyes pop out of his head.

    Xiao Hei, quickly run. This is your last chance. Dont disappoint me. Otherwise I wont close my eyes after death! Qin Yus voice rises in Xiao Heis mind through holy sense communication.

    In just a moment, Xiao Hei has totally understood.

    A resounding eagle cry comes out from his mouth. It sounds extremely hurt, reluctant, bitter and grieved. However, Xiao Hei has no choice but to execute the Passing Lightning Flashing Nine Times rushing west.

    At this moment the other octopuses comes to their senses. They want to chase after Xiao Hei, but --

    This eagle is unexpectedly also frighteningly fast like that Xiuxianist. Seeing Xiao Heis speed, those late Jindan-stage octopuses deliberately give up chasing because they are merely half as fast as Xiao Hei. Only their big brother Sang Mo, who has reached the early phase of the Yuanying stage, can have a good chance of catching up with him.

    We dont chase? The 3rd brother looks at the 4th and 2nd brothers.

    The 2nd brother rebukes: Chase what? Sang Tu is already dead so big brother mustve gone mad. We have to help him chase that Xiuxianist together. That eagle isnt important. If that Xiuxianist escapes, you guys should be ready to take big brothers fury.

    As soon as the 3rd brother and 4th brother think about Sang Mos temper, their hearts tremble.

    Lets go.

    3 late Jindan-stage demonic beasts then rush south extremely fast as well.

    At the moment Qin Yu is standing on his flying sword, using the Body Weapon Unification technique. His whole body is piercing through the water extremely fast like a speeding arrow or a flash. However, a red octopus, which is furious because of the death of his son a moment ago, is chasing closely after him. Every shake of his 8 tentacles is allowing him to flash through the water almost as fast as using teleportation.


    A tentacle smashes down. At the last moment, with a strange twist of his entire body, Qin Yu avoids this strike with difficulty. However, immediately afterwards, several tentacles smash down in quick succession. Qin Yus speed quickly decreases.

    He clenches his teeth.

    Lets leave it to my luck. His entire body suddenly turns red, looking as if it is boiling, but there is a faint smile on his face. He knows very well that with Xiao Heis speed, if Sang Mo does not go after him, he can definitely escape.

    Goodbye, Xiao Hei!

    Qin Yu slowly says in his heart. Then, in an instant, his entire body becomes extremely red while his eyes flash with ruthlessness. Suddenly, a flame starts to blaze on one of his arms

    End of b5c4.

    B5C5: Fleeing for life

    In almost a moment, Qin Yus entire body shoots southwards like a meteor. His current speed is nearly 100 times as fast as his speed when using the Body Weapon Unification technique under a normal situation. In a blink of Sang Mos eyes, Qin Yu has already disappeared completely.

    Sang Mo then quickly transforms into a red-robed human from a huge red octopus.

    The eyes of him, who is now being covered in a red robe, radiate a shiny green light. He stands there for a long time. No one can know what he is thinking. Only after a long period of time does he say in a deep voice that is filled with hatred: Blood Escaping Art? No, thats unlikely. Hes not a Xiumoist.

    Humph, Xiuxianist, no matter who you are, I, Sang Mo, will definitely kill you to avenge my sons death.

    With a movement of his body, he immediately leaves that place.

    A half day later, Sang Mo comes to a very elegant palace. Since a water-repelling restrictive spell has been set up outside this palace, even though it is located at the bottom of the ocean, there is absolutely no water inside it. He goes into the palace directly.


    2 very muscular bald men say to him while bowing. Without saying a word, Sang Mo enters the main hall of the palace at once. He then orders in a cold voice: Tell everyone to quickly gather in the main hall within 10 breaths. Latecomers will be punished with impalement.

    Sang Mos voice resounds through the whole palace. 10 breaths, no more -- it is such a short period of time. The members of Sang Mos clan thus all activate their demonic elemental energy to hurry into the main hall at their fastest speeds. In less than 10 breaths, nearly 100 octopuses have already gathered in the palace.

    They are all using their human forms because this is the requirement for entering the palace. Otherwise, the palace will simply be unable to accommodate their huge octopus bodies. The fact that these clan members can transform into humans means that they have all at least reached the Jindan stage.

    May I ask for what important matter youve summoned our clans members so urgently, Patriarch? A gray-clad middle-aged man bows and says.

    Sang Mo, robed in red, says coldly: Humph, important matter? My son Sang Tu has been slain. Sang Man, do you think this is an important matter? With eyes glittering with coldness, he stares at that gray-clad middle-aged man Sang Man. Being given that cold stare, Sang Man immediately feels all of his hair quickly begin to stand on end.

    His heart trembles: That brat Sang Tu is unexpectedly already dead. No wonder Patriarch is so furious. This time Ive offended him when he is angry. Knowing that this is bad for himself, Sang Man hurriedly says to Sang Mo: Important matter? Of course this is an important matter. Patriarch, please tell me about the bastard who dared to kill Sang Tu. Ill definitely cut him into pieces.

    Get back. Sang Mo says coldly.

    Sang Man cleverly returns and joins the other members at once while secretly letting out a sigh of relief.

    Though the Sang clan isnt big, within the radius of 8 million li controlled by the Blood-red Cave theres been nobody who dared to bully our clan. But this time my son has unexpectedly been slain by a Xiuxianist. The aura around Sang Mos entire body is terrifyingly cold and sinister at the moment.

    None of those clan members dares to say anything. In the Sang clan, Sang Mos words are absolutes.

    In the end that brat used a technique similar to Xiumoists Blood Escaping Art. Even if he doesnt die, hell be seriously injured and lose more than 90% of his power. There are only some Xiuxian and Xiumo islands within 8 million li of the Blood-red Cave and none of them has such a blazing energy as that brats.

    Sang Mo says in a deep voice. Suddenly his voice becomes solemn: All members of the Sang clan must tell members of other clans that brat is definitely within a 100,000 li radius of this place. Theres not even one island of Xiuxianists in this area. Find him for me. You must find him for me.


    The nearly 100 clan members in the main hall say with obedience at once.

    Alright, you can get started now. Sang Mo coldly gives an order. Immediately, the nearly 100 clan members all leave the palace at high speeds. Sang Mo himself however takes out a black authority card. There are some written talismans on it. It is none other than a relatively precious transmitter.

    Sang Mo channels his request into it using his holy sense. In only a short while, this piece of information has been sent to the Blood-red Range, which is several million li away.

    The Blood-red Range is the center of this area of water, which has a radius of 8 million li. The Blood-red Cave is the supreme central power of this area of water. In the Blood-red Cave, there are a cave master and 2 vice masters. They have 13 guardians under them altogether.

    The 13 guardians of the Blood-red Cave are very powerful. Even the weakest among them is a late Jindan-stage expert. Moreover, in terms of real offensive power, this late Jindan-stage guardian is definitely not inferior to early Yuanying-stage ordinary Xiuyaoists. Therefore, he was able to become the 13th guardian.

    And Sang Mo has another identity, that is, one of the Blood-red Caves 13 guardians.

    In the Blood-red Cave,

    Vice master, Guardian Sang Mo has just sent a message, saying that he wants a reward-offering order to be given. A blond man, who received the message, says to a very thin man. This very thin man is none other than Cha Ge, one of the caves 2 vice masters.

    The master of the Blood-red Cave is Cha Hong, whose power is the most fearsome in the cave. It is said that he has reached the Dongxu stage. Added to this the unusual innate gifts of his true form, a blood-red aquatic python, and he has extremely powerful offense. Even in the boundless ocean, he can still be regarded as a strong figure.

    However, the 2 vice masters are not very powerful. They were able to become the caves vice masters mainly because they are Cha Hongs younger brothers.

    The 2nd brother Cha Pos power is not bad, having reached the middle phase of the Yuanying stage. But the 3rd brother Cha Ge has only reached the early phase of the Yuanying stage and is about as strong as the average guardians. However, because his big brother is Cha Hong, he has been a real tyrant in this area of water.

    Oh, give a reward-offering order? Cha Ges long narrow face and also his ice-cold eyes look like those of a real python.

    Yes, Guardian Sang Mos son has been killed by a Xiuxianist When the blond man has just finished saying, Cha Ge laughs out loud: No wonder. Sang Mos precious son has been killed, its impossible for him not to go insane. Tell me, what treasure did Sang Mo bring out? Lets see if its valuable enough for me to get into action.

    The blond man says: Vice master, Guardian Sang Mo took out a middle-grade holy weapon. At the same time, he said hed owe anyone who captured that Xiuxianist a favor.

    Hearing the words middle-grade holy weapons, that vice master Cha Ge has a hint of disappointment on his face: That Sang Mo is really stingy, only a middle-grade holy weapon and a favor. All right, whatever happens, hes still a guardian of our Blood-red Cave. Lets publicize the reward offer within our waters of 8 million li in radius to help him.

    Yes. The blond man however secretly curses. Youre a vice master so this middle-grade holy weapon naturally doesnt interest you. But it and a favor are already a high reward for such a simple thing as capturing a Jindan Xiuxianist who can use an escaping technique similar to the Blood Escaping Art.

    Of course, the blond man will not say it out.

    Xiuyaoists art of forging is not as good as that of Xiuxianists. It is still simple to forge a low-grade holy weapon, but it is much more difficult to forge a middle-grade one. Among Xiuyaoists, most owners of middle-grade holy weapons are Yuanying-stage experts.

    A middle-grade holy weapon and a favor from Sang Mo,

    Sang Mo is one of the 13 guardians, no less. So, a favor from him will be very useful.

    Perhaps when this reward offer is made public, a great number of Jindan Xiuyaoists will get into action. After all the target is really too weak Having used an escaping technique similar to the Blood Escaping Art, he mustve suffered a huge loss in power. If he can have 30% of his power left, thatll already be not bad.

    The blond man nods with a smile then leaves to issue a statement about the reward offer.

    By contrast, vice master Cha Ge goes towards his own dwelling place. He even says angrily: That Sang Mo is really stingy. Hes still too attached to that high-grade holy weapon Thunder Hammer to bring it out. This Cha Ge has coveted that treasure of Sang Mos -- the Thunder Hammer -- for a very long time.

    However, his big brother Cha Hong has ordered that his subordinates absolutely not fight each other.

    Right after the reward offer is publicized, many Xiuyaoists in the 8 million li radius controlled by the Blood-red Cave begin to emerge. There are even occasional appearances of Yuanying-stage experts. That reward offer has given a very detailed description of Qin Yu.

    All of those who know about this news decide that this Xiuxianist, whose energy is extremely pure and blazing, should be in the 100,000 li of water next to the Qian Long continent. After all, even though a desperate escaping technique similar to the Blood Escaping Art is fast, it cannot be used to cover a very long distance.

    Therefore, a great many experts within this 100,000 li area of water emerge. The further it is from this area, the fewer Xiuyaoists join the pursuit of Qin Yu. And the ones who are enthusiastic about and interested in this matter the most are of course the members of the Sang octopus clan.


    Ah ~~~

    Acute pains continuously come from his left arm. Qin Yus entire body keeps shooting south extremely fast like a meteor. This escaping technique is none other than the special escaping technique that is used to flee for life in the Stellar Transformations book -- the Meteor Escaping Art.

    When using it, the user burns his body like a meteor in exchange for an extremely fast speed.

    Damn you, Meteor Escaping Art! This feels really almost unbearable. Clenching his teeth, Qin Yu keeps heading straight forwards. At the moment his entire body is red, looking as if flames are about to come out from inside it, and the blood and flesh of his left arm are being burnt nonstop.

    In theory, one should have already passed out long ago due to such acute pains. After all, the pain of burning his own flesh and blood is beyond the tolerance limit of a person.

    However, Qin Yus mind has been trained since he was a little kid and therefore is extremely tough. Moreover, thanks to the nourishment of the Meteoric Tear, his soul has become very strong. So, he unexpectedly has not lost consciousness despite the agonies. However, because of this, he has had to endure the continuous intensification of the pains.

    With a clear state of mind, Qin Yu observes himself flying south extremely fast. Only when more than half of his left arms and upper bodys flesh has been burnt does he stop.

    It shouldve already been several tens thousand li. His whole face begins to twitch. The feeling of burning himself nonstop while maintaining a clear mind is really not something a human can bear. Meteoric Tear, Ill leave everything to you.

    He gets under a coral reef then stops moving.

    The Meteoric Tear keeps sending out various clear streams, which continuously heal the burnt places. Qin Yus left arm has nearly been burnt up, with only a few charred muscles and bones remaining. Taking a look at it will make anyone feel unbearable.

    Ah His entire body is trembling nonstop.

    It feels really very comfortable when the Meteoric Tears clear streams fuse with the injuries, continuously healing them. Even his burnt muscles and blood are being regenerated. However, this re-creating process unexpectedly inflicts even more pain on him than burning himself did.

    Sweat keeps oozing from his entire body. His muscles and bones are all trembling.

    Xiao Hei, you should be okay, right? Qin Yu somehow thinks about this matter, but right afterwards a heart-piercing pain comes from his chest. A breastbone more than half of which has been burnt up earlier is unexpectedly regenerating little by little. But this is really shockingly painful.

    Qin Yu cannot help letting out a groan. Beads of sweat continue to stand out on his whole body.

    For the moment he cannot think about anything else other than trying to endure this kind of pain. The nourishment of the Meteoric Tear is comfortable but the regeneration of the muscles and bones is so painful that his soul is shaken. This comfortable feeling and this pain are basically 2 polar extremes.

    He is shuttling back and forth unceasingly between these 2 extremes.

    However, it is much easier for the Meteoric Tear to repair the damage to the bones than to the internal organs. In only 2 days, Qin Yus originally terrifying wounds have already healed more than 50% and 80% of his left arm has unexpectedly regrown.

    Most of his burnt muscles and bones have regenerated.

    You really didnt disappoint me, Meteoric Tear. Qin Yu let Xiao Hei run away first because he had decided to take a gamble on the Meteoric Tears wonderful effects. But even so, he was not certain that the Meteoric Tear would be able to regenerate his limbs and body.

    After all, even though it can repair the heart, this does not necessarily mean that it can regrow the body and limbs. Qin Yu gambled for the sake of Xiao Hei and this time he has won.

    Good, now the injuries have healed more than 50%.

    He tries hard to sit up with legs crossed. Blood oozes out of some scabs that have just been formed on his body at once. He draws a cold breath in pain with a hiss but still sits up. Then, using his intact right arm, he quickly takes out a jindan.

    It is Sang Tus jindan.

    Right now, power is the most important thing. Lets refine this jindan first. Ignoring the fact that his injuries have not completely healed yet, Qin Yu immediately accelerates the nebula inside his body and forms another nebula around him. He then begins to refine this jindan.

    In his method of refinement, energy will go from the nebula outside his body into the nebula in his dantian by going through his entire bodys muscles and bones.

    However, at the moment his body is still seriously injured. Therefore, when stellar energy and the essence of the jindan go through his muscles, bones and channels, he cannot help slightly trembling all over because it is really extremely painful.

    Even though he did limit training for years starting when he was still a child, he has never experienced such sharp pains.

    But Qin Yu understands that he must persevere and improve his power as much and as fast as possible. The boundless ocean is an unfamiliar place to him. In this place, he must improve his power first then gather all the information about it.

    He also knows that Sang Mo will never give up trying to catch him.

    Since Sang Mo should be focusing most of his attention on me, Xiao Hei should be safe. Qin Yu thinks to himself while pains that can go deep into his muscles and bones keep coming from every place of his entire body. Sang Tus jindan is also being refined and absorbed nonstop.

    In a dark cave at the bottom of the ocean, there are 2 blue dots of light. They are the light radiated from a pair of eyes, whose owner is none other than Xiao Hei, who was able to escape thanks to Qin Yu. Black flashes of lightning are flickering unceasingly on Xiao Heis body. After a long time, many golden air streams float out from inside his body.

    Big brother, you must hang on and wait for me!

    Thanks to the special telepathy between Xiao Hei and Qin Yu, he can feel that Qin Yu is still living. But he knows that, being hunted by Sang Mo, Qin Yu is in imminent danger. Therefore, he has selected that forbidden technique in his hereditary memories to practice.

    A series of deep cries comes out heavily from Xiao Heis throat. His entire body is undergoing drastic changes nonstop.

    Big brother, wait for me!

    B5C6: Xiumo book Nameless

    Chi chi ~~~

    The energy of the jindan keeps going through Qin Yus muscles and bones. The originally damaged muscles and bones are shaking continuously while trickles of blood are oozing from his pores. But Qin Yu is clenching his teeth to endure.

    Get the most out of his time!

    In his dantian, the blue flame in the center of the nebula is burning the air streams made of the jindans energy nonstop, getting rid of all the impurities, leaving only the essence in the end, which in turn is absorbed by the various silvery grains in Qin Yus nebula. Last time, because Qin Yu executed his special skill and struck Xiang Yang a life-risking all-out blow, his silvery grains were reduced in size a lot. Despite a period of restoration, only more than 50% of what was lost was later regained.

    However, at the moment, the silvery grains in his nebula have already surpassed their peak in the past.

    I only need a half day. My power can reach its best condition in only a half day. Qin Yu is calculating in his mind. He does not care too much about the refinement of the jindan because this refining process is very simple and only requires a little attention.

    But what can I do when my power is restored? His mind becomes somewhat anxious.

    He basically knows nothing about the overseas Xiuzhen world, especially the world of its greatest power -- the underwater Xiuyaoists. For example, he does not know how, when he went into the ocean for the 1st time, Xiuyaoists were able to find out that he was an outsider.

    If this matter is not cleared up, it will probably be difficult for him to even take a step forwards.

    There are so many Xiuyao experts under the water. Many of them must be stronger than me. If I cant fully understand the world of underwater Xiuyaoists, perhaps I should return home to the Qian Long continent like a cowardly black turtle. Qin Yu simple cannot stand himself retreating.

    But are there any solutions?

    Asking someone? Will those Xiuyaoists tell Qin Yu? Maybe they will immediately attack him.

    Ah, right!

    Qin Yus mind is struck by a thought. He suddenly remembers that among the Xiuzhen books that he read in Lei Mountain House in the past, there were Xiuxian secret books, Xiumo secret books and Xiuyao secret books. Moreover, there were even some Xiuzhen secret books from Earth, the holy land of Xiuzhenists in another universe.

    One of those books from Earth seemed to be a Xiumo secret book. Qin Yu glanced through it once and saw 2 words -- Soul Examination!

    Because some practice methods of Xiumoists in this book were really too brutal, for example, using pregnant womens placentas or something, he naturally was not interested in it and only skimmed through it once. But he immediately took notice of this Xiumo secret skill Soul Examination.

    Good, after refining this jindan Ill start practicing this kill. Qin Yus heart is filled with happiness.

    At a crucial moment, these special Xiumo techniques unexpectedly can help him. After remembering the Soul Examination, he also remembers the other Xiumo secret skills that secret book talked about. Each of them is extremely eerie.

    However, to Qin Yu, they cannot be more suitable to use in his current situation.

    When he is still overjoyed, suddenly --

    No good. Theres someone!

    He knows that this is not good because his holy sense has noticed that 2 Xiuyaoists are passing by above him. These 2 Xiuyaoists are going through the water in their human forms, but they are not powerful at all. The stronger of them is only at the late phase of the Jindan stage.

    Qin Yus soul is very tough and strong so his holy sense is extremely formidable too. He locks his holy sense onto those 2 Xiuyaoists but they unexpectedly do not detect anything.

    Martial brother, Ive heard that the son of the Sang octopus clans patriarch is already dead and that patriarch has even offered a reward. Whoever captures the killer will get a middle-grade holy weapon and also a favor from him in return. The tall Xiuyaoist says to the short Xiuyaoist beside him laughingly in a casual manner.

    The martial brother says disdainfully: Martial younger brother, dont think too much about this. He must be powerful to be able to kill the Sang clans patriarchs son. Stop dreaming.

    The tall Xiuyaoist however does not agree: Martial brother, you havent heard about that reward offer, right? In the end that Xiuxianist used an escaping technique similar to the Blood Escaping Art so his power mustve suffered a huge loss. Plus, he hasnt even reached the Yuanying stage. Martial brother, whoever uses a desperate escaping technique on a par with the Blood Escaping Art will definitely need about a year to recover.

    Youre right. Its very hard to recover from the injuries caused by desperate escaping techniques like the Blood Escaping Art. The martial brother nods in agreement.

    Qin Yu, who is observing everything from below using his holy sense, secretly rejoices. Had it not been for the Meteoric Tear, it would have taken him about a year to regain his power and, even worse, his burnt left arm would not have been able to regenerate.

    Those Xiuyaoists all think that it will not be hard to catch Qin Yu and the only problem is to find him, but a man without a Xiuyao aura will be very easy to recognize.

    However, Qin Yu has the Meteoric Tear.

    And none of those Xiuyaoists knows about this, which gives him a slim chance of surviving.

    Thats right, martial brother. That Xiuxianist must be very weak now. Why dont we conduct a search? Lets use our holy senses to find him on the way. Maybe well really run into him. The tall Xiuyaoist suggests.

    Qin Yus heart immediately shakes. At this moment, it seems to skip a beat. Then he can hear his heartbeat pounding in his head.

    No good. I havent finished refining this jindan. If I rush out without any plans or preparations like this, even if I can kill these 2 blokes, Ill be hunted by a large number of Xiuyaoists. Having learned the lesson last time, he knows that he cannot be rash.

    Whatever happens, he must be fully prepared before getting into action.

    Martial younger brother, quit dreaming. The ocean is boundless while we only have short-range holy senses. If our holy senses detect a terrifying, formidable demonic beast, provoking him, you should just prepare to die then. The martial brother rebukes loudly.

    It is very impolite for one to casually examine another more powerful than him with the holy sense.

    As soon as the tall Xiuyaoist hears this, he cannot help getting frightened: Thats right. What you say is true, martial brother.

    Lets go. Whats yours is yours. You wont get whats not yours even if you try. The martial brother is clearly very cautious. Then the both of them keep going forwards above Qin Yus head.

    In the boundless ocean, there may be a certain hidden formidable demonic beast calmly practicing in a certain area of the seabed. Even though the probability of bumping into such a demonic beast is low, it is certainly higher than the probability of finding Qin Yu. After all, Qin Yu is only one man while there must be more than one demonic beast hiding at the bottom of the ocean.

    If their holy senses disturb such a formidable demonic beast, they will probably be eaten by him.


    Qin Yu secretly lets out a sigh. Even though he is not afraid of these 2 Xiuyaoists, it would have been terrible if his whereabouts had been revealed because of them. Moreover, according to the conversation between them, he has discovered a bad thing.

    The reward offer!

    This is bad. I never expected Sang Mo to offer a reward. He thinks about many things in only a moment. In the end he is sure of one thing -- he must learn the Xiumo secret technique Soul Examination first no matter what. As for some other special secret techniques, there is no hurry to learn them for the moment.

    After learning the Soul Examination, the first thing he is going to do is to find a Xiuyaoist and use it. At least he must know the general situation to be able to make further preparations. After all, he can only always win if he knows his own situation and that of the enemy.

    A half day later, Qin Yu finally finishes refining and absorbing all of the jindan. By now, all of the injuries on his body have completely healed with not even a scar on his left arm, only that there are many scabs on the surface of his body.

    When Qin Yu was refining the jindan, his blood oozed from the yet-to-be completely healed injuries then solidified to form these scabs. Of course, by now his body has totally recovered.

    Buzz ~~

    With a shake of the energy on the surface of his body, all of those scabs are immediately shattered.

    Very good, this is the best condition Ive ever been in. Qin Yu opens his eyes. At the moment he is under a coral reef. Using his stellar energy, he shakes the dirt around him away directly. Concurrently with this, his holy sense enters his spatial ring.

    Qin Yus holy sense can scan everything in the spatial ring with ease. It comes straight into the study of Lei Mountain House.


    Only when Qin Yu uses his holy sense to open that Xiumo secret book does he notice that it unexpectedly has a name. Being called Nameless does not mean that it has no name, but that the name of this Xiumo secret book is Nameless.

    He instantly skips over the part about Xiumo methods and gets to the part about how to practice Xiumo secret techniques. In the past he paid little to no attention to them, but now he starts to read them carefully one by one.

    What is the holy sense? Does it automatically come into existence when a person reaches the Jindan stage and has a strong enough soul? It has been said since ancient times that Xiuzhenists have the holy sense while immortals have the immortal sense. At first I believed this truism, but later I discovered that this is simply not true

    When reading this part, Qin Yu totally immerses himself in it.

    Reading using the holy sense is indeed very fast. He quickly finishes reading all of the secret techniques of this Xiumo book. Having done this, he feels that his understanding of the soul has reached a whole new level.

    He then opens his eyes, which flash with excitement.

    This anonymous seniors achievement of writing this Nameless book is definitely not inferior to Masters creation of the Stellar Transformations. Having read the book, Qin Yu sincerely admires this Xiuzhen senior from the planet Earth in another universe.

    This senior has opened up a new world, a world about the most essential thing -- the soul.

    Alright, lets try the 1st step. The Xiumo secret techniques flash through his mind one after another, but they all have one same basis -- being able to control spiritual energy at will. What is spiritual energy?

    The holy sense is spiritual energy!

    By inference, the legendary immortal sense is also spiritual energy, only that when the strength of the soul reaches certain levels, spiritual energy will also undergo fundamental changes.

    Qin Yu remembers the description of how to practice the 1st step.

    In this technique, the 1st step is the most difficult to practice. Spiritual energy is very mysterious. Generally, Xiuzhenists can only send out and expand their spiritual energy and its extremely difficult for them to do other things to it such as making it rotate like a maelstrom, shaping it into a sphere and so on. This depends on a persons natural talent. I can only try doing it again and again. Theres simply no shortcut.

    Qin Yu has no choice but to hope that he is talented enough.

    Spin, spin. He says in his mind, trying to control his spiritual energy directly using his thoughts. However, just like what the book says, spiritual energy turns out to be really very hard to control. It seems expanding and withdrawing are the only 2 things he can do to it.

    When he observes through the holy sense, his spiritual energy is expanded. And when he does not use the holy sense, it is withdrawn.

    A weak small heat current then gradually flows in Qin Yus head from the Meteoric Tear. In the depths of his head, there is a disc of energy. Various sinuous electric sparks are zigzagging around this disc nonstop. At the same time, the disc is slowly radiating a seven-colored light.

    That weak small heat current is absorbed by that disc little by little.

    Qin Yu is still experimenting on spiritual energy control. Since spiritual energy is immaterial, he cannot see it with his eyes, and can only feel it. He keeps experimenting over and over without giving up, because that Xiumo secret book says that

    The most talented disciple of this school needed 3 days of experimentation only to be able to slightly control spiritual energy while the author of the book even spent a whole years time.

    Suddenly, the nonphysical spiritual energy, which has been quietly whirling around Qin Yus soul in his mind, shakes for a short while.

    Its moved!

    A pleasant surprise surges up in Qin Yus heart. He simply never thought that it would take him only 2 hours to succeed. He basically cannot explain how he was able to gain control of his spiritual energy so easily.

    Soul Examination!

    Wasting no time, Qin Yu immediately recalls the Soul Examination technique and begins to practice it. Less than 1 hour later, he can already completely control 10% of his spiritual energy.

    Yes, 10% of the spiritual energy is now under his total control. This seems to be a very small amount, but even the author of the book needed 5 whole decades time to reach this level.

    However, even though Qin Yu keeps experimenting, he cannot control more spiritual energy.

    All right, lets consolidate the foundation first. He then controls that 10% of his spiritual energy, making it move. That amount of spiritual energy starts to rotate like a maelstrom, surrounding his soul and the remainder of the spiritual energy in its center.

    On Earth, this was the method of defending against other peoples spiritual-energy-charged attacks. Even though it cannot resist the attacks forcefully, it can weaken them by using the various layers of the maelstrom.

    That maelstrom-like mass of spiritual energy is slowly moving. Suddenly, the Meteoric Tear in Qin Yus body vibrates for a short while. A burning hot heat current flows out from it and rushes up into Qin Yus head directly.

    The maelstrom simply cannot block it. With an unstoppable momentum, that heat current smashes the maelstrom formed by Qin Yu to pieces.

    No good!

    This is the 1st time Qin Yu has formed a maelstrom with his spiritual energy, but it has been shattered all of a sudden. That amount of spiritual energy has unexpectedly become chaotic. Even worse, it has started to cause the rest of Qin Yus spiritual energy, which is not controlled by him, to become chaotic too.

    When his spiritual energy is in a calm state, he can only control 10% of it. Now that it has become totally chaotic, he quickly gets panicky.

    However, at the moment, above Qin Yu, a middle Yuanying-stage Xiuyaoist is slowly going in the distance. His holy sense has spread out in a very lordly manner. Judging from his direction, he is going towards Qin Yu. Given Qin Yus currently chaotic spiritual energy, he definitely will not be able to avoid detection by this Xiuyaoist.

    According to the reward offer, that Xiuxianist is very likely to be within a 100,000 li radius of this place. This idiot Sang Mo, I never thought he wouldnt be able to catch a Xiuxianist who hasnt even reached the Yuanying stage. With a cold humph this single-horned man rushes extremely fast in Qin Yus direction.

    B5C7: Soul Examination

    At the moment Qin Yu does not know that a middle Yuanying-stage Xiuyaoist is about to search his area. His entire attention is being focused on what is happening inside his head.

    That burning hot blue heat current rushes into the area of his spiritual energy in an unstoppable manner.

    Water is variable in shape and spiritual energy, which is immaterial, is also the same. Despite being disarranged, Qin Yus spiritual energy will calm down as time passes. Of course it will need quite some time to completely calm down.

    In his head,

    As opposed to the huge mass of spiritual energy, in its center -- that disc, which is continuously sending out various serpentine electric sparks, is the real core of a person, the soul! The relationship between the soul and spiritual energy is just like that between the sun and sunlight.

    Only the soul is the very essence of a person. At Qin Yus current level, he only has some understanding of spiritual energy while knowing nothing about the soul, the real fundamental thing in him.

    The soul is a forbidden domain that Xiuzhenists cannot touch.

    What is exactly the blazing blue heat current the Meteoric Tear sent out? Qin Yu focuses his entire attention on that blue air current, which has appeared all of a sudden. That blazing blue air current goes through the spiritual energy without being obstructed in the least, heading straight for the soul.

    The area of the spiritual energy is like a violent ocean. In the center of this violent ocean of spiritual energy, there is an islet-like disc, which is none other than the soul!

    When the blue air current flows to the islet-like disc, that is, the soul, it is immediately absorbed. At the same time, the seven-colored light of the soul, which keeps sending out sinuous electric sparks, suddenly becomes chaotic. The blue light immediately intensifies, but in a short while, it goes back to its state moments ago.

    At this moment, the huge mass of spiritual energy around the soul flashes with a blue light. All of the spiritual energy seems to have undergone a transformation, while an extremely great change has also occurred in Qin Yu himself.

    What a wonderful feeling.

    Qin Yu suddenly opens his eyes, which glitter. Mental control! Now Qin Yus mental control is much stronger than it was in the past. It has many uses, for example, to control the movement of the elemental energy inside his body.

    The stronger the mental control is, the more his elemental energy follows his direction, and the more finely he can control his energy when attacking.

    But the spiritual energy seems to have become harder to control. When Qin Yu tries controlling his spiritual energy again, he discovers that it has transformed. Previously it was like an untrained scholar, but now it is like a strong muscular man. An indescribable change has happened to it. At the same time, it has also become much more difficult to control.

    Even though Qin Yus mental control has suddenly improved, he unexpectedly can only control 10% of his spiritual energy as before.

    His control has increased and his soul has also transformed, but controlling 10% of his spiritual energy is still his limit. It is 10% just like before -- what does this mean? Qin Yu is doubtful but he simply cannot understand because theoretically neither spiritual energy nor the soul itself can suddenly improve.

    A practitioner has to try using his mental control many times over to improve it, and even then it improves extremely slowly. As for his spiritual energy, it also gradually improves thanks to the transformations that happen to his soul as his power increases.

    Just now, Qin Yus mental control and spiritual energy both improved by one step in only a moment, which simply cannot happen to the other Xiuzhenists. The cause of all of this is one blazing blue air current from the Meteoric Tear.

    The Meteoric Tear, what is it exactly? Qin Yu becomes even more curious about the Meteoric Tear, which fused with his body.

    He also tries sending his spiritual energy out. The moment he sends it out, he discovers that a middle Yuanying-stage expert is rushing above him in his direction and, worse still, that expert is even searching using his holy sense.

    However, when that holy sense sweeps across Qin Yu, it detects nothing. Moreover, when his holy sense expands, the expert does not feel anything happening whatsoever.

    Their holy senses are on 2 different levels. That middle Yuanying-stage Xiuyaoists holy sense is slightly weaker than Qin Yus holy sense so it cannot detect his. Qin Yu simply does not know the principle of this. It is really somewhat mysterious.

    He only knows the outcome, that is, a holy sense can detect a weaker one but cannot detect a stronger one.

    After a while, Qin Yus whole body shoots out through the coral reef from under it like lightning. His current condition is the best he has ever been in. The bad effects of using the Meteor Escaping Art have all been removed. Moreover, he has also learned the Soul Examination technique.

    Xiao Hei is in the northeast and even not very far from here. Closing his eyes, he can feel Xiao Heis existence clearly.

    A special telepathy developed between Xiao Hei and Qin Yu when they were still little, allowing them to feel each others existence.

    Qin Yu slightly narrows his eyes and immediately considers his situation: By now Sang Mo has already offered a reward because of his sons death. Plus, these underwater Xiuyaoists seem to be able to tell that Im not a Xiuyaoist with ease, including even the demonic beasts weaker than me!

    He recalls how, when he and Xiao Hei had just dived down the deep parts of the ocean, those weak demonic beasts ran away very fast.

    Those Xiuyaoists can recognize me. Added to this the reward offer, and its hard for me to take a step in this underwater world. Plus, I know nothing whatsoever about this world of Xiuyaoists. Now the most important thing to do is to sneakily kill a Xiuyaoist and use the Soul Examination to know the situation of this underwater worlds Xiuyaoists clearly.

    Qin Yu knows very well that in an unfamiliar environment he has to be extra careful.

    He then sends his holy sense out, very confident about it. Not even a middle Yuanying-stage expert was able to detect him so it is easy to imagine how formidable his holy sense is.

    Like a beam of light, Qin Yu flashes south directly.

    However, soon afterwards, he detects 8 Xiuyaoists not far from him. In an instant, he stops using stellar energy and suppresses his aura. But he has no worries about using his holy sense at all because, after all, these 8 Xiuyaoists are only at the Jindan stage.

    Big brother Sang Tan, this time Patriarch is about to go insane already. He ordered us to search nonstop without allowing us to take a rest. A Xiuyaoist says.

    These 8 Xiuyaoists are none other than members of the Sang octopus clan. These 8 members have joined forces and been doing their job together. In fact, they have been doing this because of their laziness. After all, if each of them went to a different area, their overall searching speed would be much faster.

    Damn it! Whered this Xiuxianist sod off to? Theres not a Xiuxian island within 100,000 li of this place, weve been searching for so long, Patriarch has also offered a reward, and almost every 100 li is being searched by someone but unexpectedly not even a bloody shadow has been seen. Sang Tan says angrily too.

    The face of Qin Yu, who is observing using his holy sense from a distance, immediately changes.

    He knew that the reward offer would cause many Xiuyaoists to look for him, but did not think there would be a Xiuxianist in every 100 li on average. It should be known that a 100 li distance is not considered far at all by a Xiuyaoist.

    Qin Yu however does not know that the pursuing Xiuyaoists are being concentrated mainly in this area of 100,000 li in radius. After all, most Xiuyaoists think that he is in this area. As for further areas, there are much fewer pursuing Xiuyaoists present in them. Most pursuing Xiuyaoists search these areas only once conveniently.

    Because Xiuyaoists usually spend time practicing, they are very bored, and therefore many of them are very eager to chase some Xiuxianist.

    8 Xiuyaoists. Qin Yu considers the probability of killing these 8 Xiuyaoists. After a while, he slowly shakes his head: No, I cant handle these 8 guys quickly. Also, when Sang Mo sent his clans members out, he mustve given them a method for transmitting messages. Even if I could kill these 8 quickly, theyd send a message and so many Xiuyaoists would gather in this area, which would be very bad.

    The 8 of you are very lucky.

    Without activating the stellar energy in his body, Qin Yu pierces through the water like an arrow using his physical power. The principle of the body-maneuvering skill he practiced in the past is to turn water resistance into assistance. With Qin Yus body and his water-piercing body-maneuvering skill, his speed is still very fast.

    In a short while he has already gone very far from those 8 Xiuyaoists.

    Using physical power alone to go through the water is still slower than using stellar energy. There are no Xiuyaoists in his surroundings according to his holy sense so he begins to activate his stellar energy, preparing to go forwards extremely fast from now on. However --

    Qin Yus face changes color abruptly.

    There are unexpectedly 2 Xiuyaoists up ahead. Even worse, judging from the fact that they are searching with their expanded holy senses, they are probably also Qin Yus pursuers.

    Its been only 10-odd li but Ive encountered other pursuers again. Qin Yu finally knows how densely distributed his pursuers are, especially within this area of 100,000 in radius, where almost all Xiuyaoists conveniently expand their holy senses to search when they are free.

    These 2 Xiuyaoists looks very muscular. One of them is bald and wearing armor. The other is even more muscular. His whole bodys skin has a dark blue color and there is a pitch-black stick in his hand.

    Hey, bro, today is really boring. Recently you havent surfaced to hunt, have you? The armor-clad bald man says to the blue large man casually.

    The blue large man says with a mysterious smile: Of course I have. When I came to the waters near the continent to hunt last time, I was very lucky to run into a fishing boat. There were 10-odd people on the boat, including even some women. At that time I turned into my true form and ate half of them up at a gulp. Then I sucked the rest in my storage bracelet. Ha-ha, when those people saw my true form they all yelled sea monster.

    Then could you let me also The bald man signals to the blue large man with a look.

    The blue large man says laughingly: All right, all Before the blue large man can finish saying, a fist penetrates his chest and, moreover, it lands exactly where his heart is located. This mans heart is immediately shattered.

    Go to hell!

    There is a hint of ruthlessness in Qin Yus eyes. When he heard what these 2 men said to each other, he became determined to kill them.

    As soon as the bald man takes a look at Qin Yu, he is greatly shocked: Who are you? This bald man is horrified by the fact that before he could feel an aura Qin Yu already killed his friend directly with a punch. This speed was really terrifyingly fast.

    With a faint smile on the corners of his mouth, Qin Yu stares at the bald man: Youre going to be the target of my Soul Examination!

    Soul Examination, what does it mean? The bald man is astounded in his heart.

    The Soul Examination can only be used when the opponents soul still exists. If a persons body dies, his soul will quickly leave the body to enter the cycle of reincarnation. Therefore, there are 2 ways to perform the Soul Examination on a person. The 1st is to examine his soul directly when he is alive. The 2nd is to kill him then immediately examine his soul, taking advantage of the time when the soul is yet to leave the body.

    However, because that blue large man has been dead for a while, his soul has already left, and therefore Qin Yu can only consider this armor-clad bald man the target of his Soul Examination.

    Youre a Xiuxianist, that Xiuxianist who killed Sang Mos son? The bald man suddenly says.

    Qin Yu slightly raises his eyebrows because the opponent has quickly recognized him.

    Youve unexpectedly recognized me. Tell me, how did you do that? He asks while staring at the bald man, who secretly lets out a breath because the opponent did not attack him immediately, which also gives him a slim chance of escaping.

    He has no intention of fighting Qin Yu. After seeing how Qin Yu killed his friend with a blow just now, he has made a judgment about Qin Yus power.

    The bald man says with a flattering smile: This is really very simple. Your body doesnt have a Xiuyao aura. Your aura is different from ours. Also, a Xiuxianist who dares to go deep into the ocean is either an extremely powerful expert or a completely ignorant rookie, but in the upper part of this area, there is no

    Before the bald man can finishes saying, he suddenly sees Qin Yus body, which is 10 m away from him, make a swaying movement and arrive at his face in an instant.


    The bald man immediately reacts, wanting to resist. However, when has just thrown a punch


    With a series of noises of bones being smashed Qin Yus fist directly shatters the bald mans fist then, while he is shocked, proceeds to pierce through his chest and break his heart into pieces. At the same time, Qin Yus left hand makes a violent grab at the bald mans head.

    Xiumo -- Soul Examination!

    After a while, Qin Yu pulls back his hands. Concurrently with this, he gets the jindans of these 2 Xiuyaoists, both of whom are at the middle phase of the Jindan stage.

    He gave the bald man a chance to talk because he did not want any mistakes to happen. If he had tried to kill the bald man right after killing the blue large man, that bald man would definitely have defended with all his might.

    If the bald man had self-destructed, he would have had to run away to avoid the explosion, which would have given the opponents soul enough time to float off. Therefore, Qin Yu allowed the bald man to talk, but when the opponent had just said half of what he intended to say, he sprang into action.

    Lets get rid of the corpses to remove all traces.

    He sucks the 2 Xiuyaoists dead bodies, weapons and armor in his spatial ring. Ordinary Xiuzhenists have storage bracelets with small spaces so they would have to deal with some useless things before doing this, but Qin Yu just does not care.

    Sucking the bodies in the spatial ring is absolutely the best way to remove all the traces of what happened.

    Having absorbed the memories of that Xiuyaoist, now Qin Yu understands everything about the entire underwater world of Xiuyaoists. All of his doubts have disappeared in an instant. He cannot help giving a faint confident smile: I see!

    End of b5c7.

    B5C8: Nowhere to run

    The ocean is immense and seems limitless. The islands on the ocean surface are the territory of Xiuxianists and Xiumoists while the boundless underwater world is the territory of Xiuyaoists, whose power is much greater than that of either Xiuxianists or Xiumoists.

    There are 3 superpowers in the underwater world of Xiuyaoists, just like 3 big empires.

    The 1st is the Azure Dragon Palace. The overlord of the palace is, of course, a divine beast azure dragon in his true form. He is called the no. 1 expert of the overseas Xiuzhen world. Even super experts among Xiuxianists and Xiumoists cannot compare with him.

    The 2nd is the Nine Demons Hall, which has 9 leaders, whose true forms are Purple Demon aquatic dragons, a mutated kind of aquatic dragon. Even though they are not as strong as the Azure Dragon Palace overlord individually, as 9 brothers, they enjoy an advantage in number. Moreover, each of them is a super expert.

    The 3rd is the Blue Water Mansion. The Blue Water Mansion master is a mutated divine beast -- a Three-Blue-Eyed toad. His 3rd eye is extremely fearsome and has very strange offense. He is slightly weaker than the Azure Dragon Palace overlord, but because of that unusual 3rd eye, not even the Azure Dragon Palace overlord is certain of beating him.

    In the underwater world of Xiuyaoists, these 3 superpowers are like 3 super empires. They occupy an area of water that is millions of li in radius each. Nobody dares to shake their positions of power so they are absolute overlords under the water.

    There are small powers under these 3 superpowers.

    The waters ruled by the Nine Demons Hall have a radius of 90 million li. There are 8 lesser powers in this area, all of which are under the control of the Nine Demons Hall, and the leader of which is the Blood-red Cave, which is in charge of the northernmost region, which is 8 million in radius, of the Nine Demons Halls territory.

    The structure is very clear, just like on the Qian Long continent. The Azure Dragon Palace, the Nine Demons Hall, and the Blue Water Mansion are very similar to 3 big dynasties. As far as the Blood-red Cave is concerned, its like a county subordinate to the Nine Demons Hall. And Im currently in the waters controlled by the Blood-red Cave.

    Qin Yus mind is now clear.

    Previously, he knew nothing about the underwater world of Xiuyaoists so naturally he was scared. A person is only afraid of the unknown. After understanding everything, even though Qin Yu knows that there are countless Xiuyao experts under the water, he has relaxed a lot mentally.

    This underwater world of Xiuyaoists is obviously larger than the Qian Long continent and, moreover, there are many more experts here as well. The 2 worlds are simply not on a par with each other. Several tens random Xiuyaoists alone from the underwater world can easily wipe out the entire Qian Long continent.

    A continent of mortals and an underwater world of Xiuyaoists are simply not on the same level.

    Ah, ah, it turns out this is the reason why Xiuyaoists can quickly tell that Im an outsider.

    2 jade cards appear in his hand.

    These jade cards were taken from the bodies of the 2 Xiuyaoists killed moments ago. The upper halves of the jade cards have 2 words, Nine Demons, and the lower halves of the cards have a word, Blood-red. These few words are all emitting a special aura.

    In the beginning the Great Majesty of the Nine Demons Hall gave an order, that is, in the territory controlled by the Nine Demons Hall, all Xiuyaoists who have reached the Jindan stage must receive a jade identity card. In the Nine Demons Halls waters, Xiuyaoists who belong to the same power cannot fight each other.

    There are 9 kinds of jade identity cards for Xiuyaoists in the territory of the Nine Demons Hall.

    They are Nine Demons Blood-red, Nine Demons Great Shell, and so on.

    There are 8 lesser powers like the Blood-red Cave in the Nine Demons Halls territory so naturally there are 8 kinds of jade identity cards like the Nine Demons Blood-red card. The last kind of jade identity card is the Nine Demons card. It is given to the Xiuyaoists who are directly under the Nine Demons Hall and are not controlled by the 8 powers.

    No Xiuyaoists in the Nine Demons Halls territory are allowed to kill the ones with the Nine Demons cards. Anyone who breaks this rule will be punished by the guards of the Nine Demons Hall.

    A Xiuyaoist with a Nine Demon Blood-red card is not allowed to kill another one with the same kind of jade identity card, but he can kill any Xiuyaoist who has a different kind of identity card.

    The Nine Demons Hall gave this order to make the 8 lesser powers fight each other, thereby losing power. Moreover, no one can kill the Xiuyaoists controlled directly by it. So, naturally more and more Xiuyaoists have become its immediate subordinates.

    There is a hint of a smile on Qin Yus face.

    From now on, Ill become a member of the Blood-red Cave, which is under the Nine Demons Hall. He personalizes a jade card by blood and sucks it in his body then conveniently throws the other card in his spatial ring.

    The Nine Demons Hall has never worried that outsiders will take these jade identity cards by force. It cannot even wait for some experts from the outside to accept them.

    Once a Xiuyaoist has a jade identity card, he can sense the information about anothers jade identity card with it. If they have the same kind of identity card, this will mean they belong to the same powerhouse. If their identity cards are of different kinds, they can fight each other.

    Of course, he can also fight someone from the same powerhouse as his if he is confident that he can hide this from the rule-enforcing squad or that he can resist this squad.

    Previously, mainly because Qin Yu and Xiao Hei did not have jade identity cards when they dived deep into the ocean, they were quickly spotted by those Xiuyaoists.

    But even though Ive got a jade card, my body still doesnt have a Xiuyao aura. Qin Yu slightly frowns. Xiuyaoists auras are commonly referred to as demonic auras, which are very easily recognizable to all Xiuyaoists. This is also the reason why those Xiuyaoists were able to judge that Qin Yu was a Xiuxianist in an instant.

    He feels that a complication has arisen.

    Because he has a jade identity card, Xiuyaoists can sense the aura on his card. If they do not pay close attention to him then they will not be able to discover his true identity, but if they observe his aura carefully then they will notice that he does not have a demonic aura, which will put him in serious danger.

    A demonic aura. Qin Yu frowns deeply while mumbling repeatedly.

    His mind however is pondering nonstop. Xiuyaoists can recognize each other thanks to, firstly, the jade identity cards and, secondly, their demonic auras. After all, because most Xiuyaoists use their human forms, they look very similar to Xiuxianists and Xiumoists.

    Thats right, Northern Darkness!

    A faint smile appears on the corners of Qin Yus mouth.

    The Northern Darkness is a Xiumo secret skill which is more difficult to practice than the Soul Examination by several levels. To perform the Northern Darkness, the user must combine his spiritual energy with his bodys elemental energy. The Northern Darkness has 2 functions. The 1st is to suppress the users aura and the 2nd is to accelerate his practicing progress.

    If he wants to suppress his aura, he will only need to execute the skill with a little spiritual energy, and his entire aura will be swallowed up.

    If he wants to speed up his practicing progress, he will have to perform the skill with a lot of spiritual energy. Not only will his entire aura be swallowed up, the natural holy energy in his vicinity will be absorbed completely as well. At that time, in the eyes of observers, the user of the Northern Darkness skill will look like a black hole, sucking in all holy energy near him.

    Examining someone with the holy sense is, firstly, to examine his holy sense and, second, to examine the aura that his body sends out.

    Once I use the Northern Darkness, my aura wont be sent out. Other people not only wont be able to feel my aura, but even my spiritual energy as well. Perhaps the enemies will think that I practice a certain special Xiuyao technique.

    This is an eclectic solution.

    Qin Yu is not a Xiuyaoist so he cannot form a demonic aura that Xiuyaoists naturally send out from their bodies. But he only needs to absorb his entire aura. If other people discover that they cannot feel his aura at all, they will generally think that he is a mysterious expert.

    Qin Yu, who is pondering about practicing the Northern Darkness, simply does not notice a small green fish not far from him.

    When Qin Yu examines his surroundings using his holy sense, he pays no attention to ordinary fish and shrimps and only cares about those who have at least reached the Jindan stage. This small green fish is a Xiantian level small fish, the likes of which are very commonly seen in the depths of the ocean.

    In the Sang clans palace,

    Sang Mo is sitting alone in the main hall, sadly drinking wine mouthful after mouthful. After spending several days searching without finding Qin Yu, he has now engaged the help of 30 experts from the Green-eyed fish clan, which can be said to have eyes everywhere in the ocean.

    Senior Sang Mo, the killer has been found. A man whose face has green scales quickly walks into the main hall then says smilingly to Sang Mo while bowing.

    Sang Mo immediately stops the cup in his hand.

    You said the killer had been found? His eyes glitter with killing intent.

    That man from the Green-eyed fish clan says proudly: Isnt it only an area of 100,000 li in radius? 30 members of my clan have been searching together. Each of them controls over 1000 fish. There are countless fish at the bottom of the ocean, so who would pay attention to a common fish?

    Ha-ha, quickly tell me where he is. Sang Mo is elated.

    The man from the Green-eyed fish clan hands over a slip of jade to Sang Mo directly. After all, it is very hard to give a clear verbal description of Qin Yus whereabouts. Using the holy sense to draw of sketch of Qin Yus location is very much simpler. As soon as Sang Mo scans the jade slip with his holy sense, he knows where Qin Yu currently is.

    Good, when the killers been captured, Ill definitely thank you handsomely. At the moment Sang Mo is extremely excited.

    The man from the Green-eyed fish clan says with a smile: Ill go with you, Senior Sang Mo. Even if he moves, I can tell you his whereabouts clearly.

    Very good, then follow me.

    Right after saying, Sang Mo shoots out of the palace like a red beam of light, rushing extremely fast towards Qin Yus location. That man from the Green-eyed fish clan goes with him side by side. Sang Mo also begins to tell his clans members to gather in that area through his transmitter.

    This time I wont let him escape no matter what! Sang Mos eyes glitter with fierceness. His killing intent is moving around his body nonstop.

    Qin Yu gets into the rocks of a seamount and starts to try practicing the Xiumo skill Northern Darkness.

    The Soul Examination only uses spiritual energy so it was very simple for him to practice, but the Northern Darkness combines spiritual energy with the bodys elemental energy so Qin Yu will have to mix his stellar energy and his spiritual energy together.

    He draws out a stream of stellar energy from his dantian and a stream of spiritual energy from his head then makes them come into contact with each other.

    Combine? How to combine?

    Qin Yu discovers that his stellar energy and spiritual energy are 2 totally different kinds of energy. There is simply no way to combine them because spiritual energy can even go through stellar energy. Spiritual energy is immaterial whereas stellar energy is physical.

    No wonder the book says the Northern Darkness is extremely hard to learn. The author was only able to create it after reaching the Dujie stage. Qin Yu slightly frowns.

    Spiritual energy and stellar energy are basically 2 completely different things, so heaven only knows how the author was able to combine them.

    Senior Sang Mo, my young just sent me a message that the killer is in a seamount 300 li to the southwest. It seems hes practicing. The man from the Green-eyed fish clan says to Sang Mo smilingly in a confident manner.

    Sang Mos eyes glitter. There are more than 20 members of his clan behind him. Meanwhile, the Sang clans members in several other directions are also attempting to surround Qin Yu.

    300 li, very good.

    Sang Mo feels his whole bodys blood starting to boil. As soon as he remembers how his sons head was penetrated and shattered and his sons jindan was snatched, he cannot control his fury.


    With his robe flapping, Sang Mo speeds up by a notch, rushing straight towards Qin Yus current location. On one side, the man from the Green-eyed fish clan and over 20 members of the Sang clan also rush in Qin Yus direction after him.

    Only 300 li, to Xiuyaoists, this is really a very short distance.

    Before long, there are only several tens li left between Sang Mo and Qin Yu.

    In the seamount, Qin Yu, whose holy sense has always been on high alert, suddenly changes his countenance. His holy sense has detected that Sang Mo and quite a few experts are rushing towards him in the northeast. Luckily for Qin Yu, his holy sense has become a bit stronger and its range has also enlarged quite a bit.

    Seeing Sang Mo hurrying in a straight line and Sang Mos expression, Qin Yu is 90% sure that Sang Mo knows where he is.

    Simply having no time to think about how the enemies know his location, Qin Yu leaves the seamount extremely fast. Standing on his flying sword and using the Body Weapon Unification technique, he immediately flees south. Sang Mo is not chasing in his true form so his speed is naturally not as fast as Qin Yus.

    No good, the killer seems to have noticed us. Hes running south. The man from the Green-eyed fish clan becomes very anxious at once.

    Sang Mos face changes color.

    The man from the Green-eyed fish clan continues: The killers speed is extremely fast. My young simply cant keep up with him. Perhaps the fish controlled by the other members of my clan can detect the killer, but these members are still in the Sang clans palace.

    Sang Mo did not think that Qin Yu would be able to detect him so he only brought a man from the Green-eyed fish clan with him.

    Never mind, Ive arranged my clans members in the other directions.

    Killing intent starts to come out from Sang Mos face. At the same time, with a fluttering movement of his robe, Sang Mo transforms into a huge red octopus. With a shake of his 8 tentacles, he immediately chases south like a beam of light. Compared to Qin Yu, who is using the Body Weapon Unification, he is even slightly faster.

    Qin Yu is rushing south extremely fast but then he suddenly stops.

    Theres someone!

    His holy sense has detected 10-odd octopuses several tens li away from him. Even though there are only 10-odd of them at the moment, who is to say many more will not come. Based on this and the fact that just now Sang Mo was rushing straight towards him, Qin Yu makes a judgment.

    Sang Mo knows where I am. Plus, a circle has even been formed around me.

    After Qin Yu stopped for a while, his holy sense discovers that a huge red octopus is rushing towards him from a distance of several tens li behind him.

    Its Sang Mo. Qin Yus countenance instantly changes.

    B5C9: Countdown to the killings

    At the moment Qin Yu is merely at the middle phase of the Nebula stage while Sang Mo has already reached the early phase of the Yuanying stage and, moreover, his true form is an octopus, which has extremely strong offense. Once Qin Yu encounters Sang Mo, he will definitely be at a disadvantage, and therefore his reaction is --

    The west!

    Disregarding everything else, Qin Yu changes his direction and rushes straight to the west at a terrifyingly fast speed. He is relying on the fact that the range of his holy sense is longer than that of Sang Mos by a considerable distance. Thanks to this distance, he can detect Sang Mo before Sang Mo can detect him.

    Sang Mo is still rushing south.

    In only a moment, the distance between them has reached 100 li.

    Indeed. Qin Yus eyes flash with coldness. His holy sense has discovered clearly that there are 10-odd octopuses lying in wait in the west. Clenching his teeth, he keeps rushing west straight at his fastest speed like a beam of light regardless.

    The western area is huge but because the enemies are 10-odd octopuses they have been able to cover a very large area with their holy senses.


    A blur flashes through the area covered by an octopuss holy sense. That member of the Sang clan immediately lets out a strange deep yowl: The killer, its the killer! Those words, said in the Sang clans unique language, make the 10-odd members of the Sang clan around jump.

    The leader of this group takes out a transmitter at once.

    Patriarch, the killer is running west.

    In only a short while, the huge octopus has already gone south several hundred li, but then he suddenly feels a message in his transmitter. The color of his face instantly changes. Uttering an extremely furious deep yowl, he makes a course correction again with his body and rushes west.

    Sang Mos true form is extremely fast, but Qin Yus direction changes again at this moment.

    Humph, chase me? Take your time chasing.

    Qin Yu has changed his direction again. He unexpectedly begins to rush south instead of keeping going west. This time, no one informs Sang Mo about Qin Yus movements. Even though Sang Mo is fast, because he and Qin Yu are going in 2 different directions, the distance between them only keeps increasing.

    Qin Yu hurries south 1000 li extremely fast!

    Then he changes his direction again and rushes east 1000 li!

    Then he goes southeast very quickly

    Because Sang Mo does not know Qin Yus direction, he has not discovered any traces after a half day of chasing. He cannot help grudgingly accepting that this chase has failed and has no choice but to return to his den in rage.

    In the palace of the Sang clan,

    The man from the Green-eyed fish clan says smilingly: Please dont worry, Senior Sang Mo. This time youve asked 30 members of my clan to help you. Given our method of searching, that killer definitely wont be able to lose us. Obviously he is very confident.

    Lifting his red robe, Sang Mo furiously takes the master seat of the main hall.

    He went after the enemy in a big way but the enemy has escaped, so how can he possibly not be angry?

    At this moment, 3 other men from the Green-eyed fish clan go into the main hall from inside the palace. There are fish scales on their faces too. These 3 men slightly bow respectfully as they see Sang Mo then one of them says: Senior Sang Mo, our young have been able to trace the killers whereabouts.

    Say. Sang Mo says very loudly. His entire bodys aura rises.

    That man says: When you were chasing that killer, at first he rushed west then hurried south. Were not clear about some places he went to in the process, but later he more or less ran southeast. At the moment he is about 7000 li to the southeast of where you first tried to chase him down.

    These men from the Green-eyed fish clan are controlling no fewer than 1000 fish each. Every fish has become one of their eyes. Moreover, they can easily discover Qin Yus identity based on his rushing speed and the fact that he does not have a demonic aura.

    Perhaps within this area of 100,000 li in radius, only Qin Yu lacks a demonic aura and has such a fast speed.

    Very good.

    Sang Mo suddenly stands up then says to a member of the Sang clan in the main hall with a cold humph: Sang Lanpu, I let you all handle a small matter but you were useless. Give the transmitter to the Green-eyed fish clans members. He is obviously very dissatisfied with the members of his own clan.

    That member called Sang Lanpu immediately takes out a transmitter then hands it over to a man from the Green-eyed fish clan.

    Sang Mo stares at this man and says in an ice-cold voice: This time, I wont let that bastard escape again no matter what. The 30 of you from the Green-eyed fish clan must stay in the palace and work together. If theres any news, tell me about it through the transmitter.

    Last time he failed because he could not receive information from others members of the Green-eyed fish clan. He has learned his lesson and is not going to make the same mistake this time.

    Therefore, he has given one of these 30 men a transmitter and told all of them to stay in the palace to message him whenever they have any information.

    Please dont worry, Senior Sang Mo. The fish controlled by the 30 of us average about one in several hundred li. As soon as that killer makes a move, they will detect him. He wont be able to escape from the palm of our hand. The man from the Green-eyed fish clan is very confident.

    Sang Mo nods his head in satisfaction.

    Senior, the killer is currently in this area.

    He hands a jade slip over to Sang Mo directly. Giving it a scan with his holy sense, Sang Mo immediately knows the location of that area. A faint savage smile appears on his face: Xiuxianist bastard, you wont escape this time no matter what.

    With his robe flapping, Sang Mo flies out of the main hall at once.

    Qin Yu is leaning tiredly on the side of an underwater rock. The clothes on his body however can repel water. At the moment he is frowning deeply. It is obvious that he is pondering.

    How was Sang Mo able to find my hiding place?

    Even now Qin Yu cannot understand this. After all, he has always been very careful. To the best of his knowledge, he should not have left any traces. After thinking for a while, he presses his temples. He has not had a moment of peace since arriving in this underwater world of demonic beasts after leaving the Qian Long continent.

    He is already too tired.

    Father should be very happy now. Qin Yu cannot help giving a faint calm smile.

    His father is living in peace on the Qian Long continent while Qin Yu is fleeing for his life. Even worse, the enemies can appear anytime.

    Fish in the ocean are really beautiful. Qin Yu makes a wave of his hand. The several hundred fish of different colors in his vicinity swim away joyously at once. In the ocean, shoals of fish are the most common sight. Sometimes, thousands or even tens of thousands of fish can swim together.

    Swimming among fish is also a kind of enjoyment.

    However, Qin Yu does not notice that a fish among these several hundred fish is slightly different from the others. The special technique of the Green-eyed fish clan is not something he can detect.

    After resting for a while, he moves again.

    There are very many Xiuyaoists in the ocean, but in this area of 100,000 li in radius, most Xiuyaoists are only at the Jindan stage. There are very few who have reached the early Yuanying stage but his holy sense discovers them long before they can discover him.

    On the way, Qin Yu has to dodge continuously. Despite some scares, he does not encounter any serious dangers.

    Very good, lets stay here and practice the Northern Darkness again. He has seen a huge seamount that is formed by layer upon layer of coral. He goes into it through a crack. Then, with a shake of his stellar energy, he creates a cave directly.

    Sitting down in this cave, he sorts things out a bit.

    In terms of offense, he should be relatively formidable. Not only is he good at close-quarters attacks, he can also control the Flaming Sword to execute long-range attacks. Besides, there are some special techniques from the Stellar Transformations book that he can use.

    As for escaping ability, his body is comparable to holy weapons and he does not seem to experience any resistance when going through the water. Once he uses the Body Weapon Unification, his speed will indeed be frighteningly fast.

    Moreover, he even knows some fairly unusual special techniques -- Xiumo secret techniques!

    Whether to escape or to blend in with the Xiuyao world and experience it, I must learn the Northern Darkness. Qin Yu immediately sits with legs crossed and begins to practice. Once again, he controls a thread of stellar energy, making it go up into his head.

    His spiritual energy is indistinct and immaterial, as if it does not exist.

    But stellar energy is a real force. His stellar energy then goes through his spiritual energy. Qin Yu simply does not know how to combine them with each other. Even worse, the practice method of this technique in that Xiumo book only has 1 word -- experiment.

    He must experiment over and over again. The creator of this technique had to experiment many times before mysteriously succeeding. And so, not even he knew the exact reason for his triumph.

    Despite having to try using this technique repeatedly, Qin Yu is not worried at all.

    He has already made preparations to undergo a one-month closed-door training session here to experiment with the technique. A month later, because Sang Mo will not have found him, perhaps the hunt for him will be slowed down. However, when Qin Yu has just been practicing for a half day,

    Senior Sang Mo, according to my youngs message, he should be 100 to 200 li to the south of you. But I dont know more details about his location. The man from the Green-eyed fish clan sends a message.

    There are no fish controlled by the Green-eyed fish clan around the place Qin Yu chose to undergo a closed-door training session, but a fish 100 li away from this location discovered that Qin Yu disappeared after rushing here, so it naturally judged that he is here.

    Well done, very well done.

    Sang Mo sticks out his blood-red tongue, giving a faint ferocious smile. Without turning into an octopus, he quietly approaches Qin Yus location in his human form. At the same time, he expands his holy sense to the utmost to search carefully.

    Qin Yu is practicing, patiently experimenting with the technique over and over again. Every time he tries using it, he analyzes his errors. He keeps experimenting repeatedly.

    Sang Mo!

    Qin Yus eyes suddenly open. Almost at the same time, he stops practicing. Even though he has been practicing, his holy sense has been on high alert, and therefore he has quickly noticed that Sang Mo is approaching. However, at this moment, Sang Mo, who is moving extremely fast, has already passed the distance caused by the difference in range between his and Qin Yus holy sense.


    Having no time to think about anything else, Qin Yu immediately crashes through the coral reef to rush out. He then rides the Flaming Sword and uses the Body Weapon Unification technique to flee east at his fastest speed. When Sang Mos holy sense has just discovered Qin Yus aura, Qin Yu is already running away again.

    Dont even dream about escaping this time. A faint cold smile appears on Sang Mos face. In an instant, his body transforms into a huge red octopus.

    Concurrently with this, he gives the 30 members of the Green-eyed fish clan in the Sang clans palace an order through his transmitter: Green-eyed fish clans members, watch carefully for me. Always send me info about that Xiuxianists location.

    After sending the message using his holy sense, Sang Mo immediately chases in Qin Yus direction.

    Even though his speed is slightly faster than Qin Yus, he notices that his holy sense cannot detect Qin Yus aura again. Therefore, he concludes at once that this disgusting Xiuxianist has changed direction once more.

    Which direction did Qin Yu run away in? The answer is impossible for Sang Mo to guess.

    Senior Sang Mo, the killer is 150 li to the south of you. Hes rushing south extremely fast.

    Sang Mo is overjoyed to receive this message from the man of the Green-eyed fish clan. He immediately chases towards Qin Yus current location at an exceptionally high speed. Even though the distance between them is only 150 li, because they are going in the same direction, only after quite some time can Sang Mo gradually get close to Qin Yu.

    Qin Yu, whose holy sense has been spread out, quickly discovers that Sang Mo is several tens li behind him.

    How can Sang Mo know the direction Im running in? He knows that this is bad so he immediately changes direction once more. The distance between them grows again in an instant.

    After a while, Qin Yu discovers once more signs of Sang Mos presence not far behind him. With anger and incomprehension, he changes his direction again, instantly pulling away from Sang Mo.

    However, before long, Sang Mo comes near him yet again!

    How can this bastard know my changed directions? Qin Yus eyes glitter with coldness. Obviously he has been infuriated.

    But behind him, Sang Mo has become furious because of the chase as well: Xiuxianist, disgusting Xiuxianist, how can he always know in advance that Im in pursuit to change his direction beforehand? Could it be his holy sense has an even longer range than mine? He cannot accept this outcome.

    Both the pursued and the pursuer are fuming.

    The east!

    Once again, Qin Yu changes his direction. But this time he is unlucky because there is a fish that is under the control of the Green-eyed fish clan in his new direction.

    Senior Sang Mo, the east, hes running east!

    This time it seems Sang Mos effort is not wasted. He rushes east in an instant and closes on Qin Yu fast. Qin Yu, who at first thought that he had widened the distance between him and Sang Mo again, is so frightened that he breaks into a cold sweat. At the same time, he rages.

    Even a clay statue would get angry if pushed to the wall. Dont anger me, Sang Mo.

    Killing intent has started to rise in his heart.

    At the moment, a dark cave at the bottom of the ocean seems to be a black hole. It is continuously swallowing up all natural kinds of energy in its surroundings. Some underwater demonic beasts which swim past this cave are even sucked in it directly without ever being able to escape.

    Soon, the suction of the cave suddenly disappears.

    From inside the cave,

    2 blue beams of light shoot out. The source of the light is the eyes of a black eagle. Since practicing a forbidden technique in his hereditary memories, Xiao Hei has gone through drastic changes. Now he is much thinner than before and even looks absolutely exhausted.

    Big brother, Im coming.

    His aura suddenly comes out from his body. It feels like an ice-cold sharp knife. With a movement of his body, which seems like a thin block of ice, Xiao Hei pierces through the water currents. He disappears in an instant. His current speed is even much faster than his speed when using the Passing Lightning Flashing Nine Times previously.

    B5C10: Murderous Qin Yu; crazy Sang Mo

    Both Xiao Heis body and wings have become much thinner. However, if someone weighed him, they would find out that the current Xiao Hei is even much heavier than before he used that forbidden technique. The reason for this is that he gobbled up the blood essence of quite a few demonic beasts which swam past the mouth of the cave and fused it with his body.

    My current condition is somewhat different from the one in my memories, but my speed and offense have even got a little more formidable than I expected.

    Xiao Hei is very satisfied with his current condition. Suddenly, his holy sense discovers an early Jindan-stage Xiuyaoist. Even though Xiuyaoists can kill each other in this underwater world, those who are subordinate to the same powerhouse generally will not fight each other.

    This tiger shark Xiuyaoist is gadding about in a tottering manner, looking very relaxed.

    Suddenly a black beam of light pierces through him directly. Only a deep growl (*) is heard. Afterwards the tiger shark is completely absorbed by that black light, including even his blood and flesh. The black light then turns into a black eagle.

    When performing this forbidden technique, I cant control myself. Even though Ive eaten up a Jindan demonic beast, his jade identity card has already been destroyed by my energy. Xiao Hei takes out that tiger shark Xiuyaoists jade identity card.

    This absorption technique of Xiao Heis not only swallows up a targets entire bodys blood and flesh, but also robs him of his memories. However, Xiao Hei does not dare to absorb the targets soul, nor can he do so.

    Qin Yu keeps changing his direction. Whenever Sang Mo comes near him, his direction is changed. However, because Sang Mo has been informed again and again by the Green-eyed fish clan, he has been unable to pull away from Sang Mo. By now, he has been being chased by Sang Mo for a half day.

    Theres someone again!

    Qin Yu curses inwardly. His holy sense has just discovered members of the Sang clan popping up ahead of him. He immediately changes his direction once more. Now, not only does he have to flee from Sang Mos chase, he also has to be careful to avoid the Sang clan members sent by Sang Mo around.

    After Qin Yu got away from him again and again, Sang Mo has ordered his clans members to start surrounding this area of 100,000 li in radius. With these Sang clan members encirclement, the situation obviously has become much worse for Qin Yu. Now, soon after taking a turn to avoid Sang Mo, he will suddenly detect members of the Sang clan not far from him.

    Senior Sang Mo, that killer is about 120 li to the south of you. Another message from the man of the Green-eyed fish clan arrives.

    At the moment, Sang Mos eyes are slightly red. It is obvious that he is burning with anger in his chest. Even though he has received this information, he is not as excited as before because he knows that it will be very difficult to capture the killer despite him being informed continuously by the Green-eyed fish clan.

    This Xiuxianist is even more slippery than a loach. Even now, Sang Mo still does not know Qin Yus name.

    However, the death of his son must be avenged, so Sang Mo keeps chasing.

    After a long time,

    This time, no matter how Sang Mo keeps chasing, he cannot detect Qin Yu. The Green-eyed fish clan can no longer detect Qin Yus aura either. And none of the Sang clan members can find out where he is. It seems Qin Yu has suddenly disappeared.

    When almost every several hundred li is being monitored by a controlled fish and, on top of that, Sang Mo and the Sang clan members are making a sweep of this area with their holy senses, Qin Yu has disappeared just like that.


    A group of the Sang clan members looks at Sang Mo, not knowing what to do. Having failed to find the murderer, what can they possibly do?

    A great fury has been built up in Sang Mos heart. He used such a large formation and even engaged the help of the Green-eyed fish clan and, besides, as the Sang clans patriarch, he himself has been chasing for so long, but they have been unable to catch a midget Xiuxianist, so how can Sang Mo possibly not become furious?

    This Xiuxianist, Ill skin him alive one day eventually then throw him into a fire (**) ant nest to make him suffer the pain of being bitten by 10,000 ants. Hes going wail for 3 days before I let him die. His eyes are full of enmity.

    Sang Mo was enraged long ago by his sons death and, moreover, he has not been able to catch Qin Yu for such a long time, therefore naturally he is even more furious now.

    Patriarch, can doing so alone vent our anger? We should cut off his johnson. Patriarch, I remember that theres a group of perverts not far to the south of our palace, isnt there. We should let them gang bang this brat for 3 days first A member of the Sang clan proposes a method of punishment in a flattering manner.

    Sang Mos eyes immediately brighten. It seems he is very pleased with it.

    Another member of the Sang clan hurriedly says: Patriarch, Ive heard of a punishment called wooden horse. Well bring out a wedge-like block of iron first then make him sit down on it with spread legs. Well seal up his jindan to let his johnson and arse get a taste of it. Then

    One after another, the Sang clan members propose various malicious punishments. These Xiuyaoists have spent most of their time practicing so occasionally some of them became very bored. To relieve the boredom, they researched and came up with some torture methods. At times they even abducted some mortals and experimented on them on some uninhabited islands.

    Sang Mo is very satisfied with their suggestions.

    Only torturing Qin Yu with these methods will relieve his hatred.

    Very good, but if we cant catch him, everything will be useless. As soon as Sang Mo thinks about how hard it is to capture Qin Yu, his face darkens. All right, lets stop chasing for now. At the same time, he gives the Green-eyed fish clan an order through his transmitter.

    Green-eyed fish clans members, all of you must watch out carefully. Once that Xiuxianist appears, tell me about it right away.

    After ordering, Sang Mo himself leaves first. His speed is much faster than ordinary octopuses. He has no patience to go slowly together with these members of his clan. Those members then break up into small groups, some of which return to the palace while the rest go to other places.

    An hour after Sang Mo and the others left this place, the dirt on the ground unexpectedly moves. Then a silhouette shoots out from underground. It is none other than Qin Yu.

    Sang clan. His eyes are filled with iciness.

    Half an hour ago, he was in a desperate situation because Sang Mo had been chasing him to the point where he had nowhere to run. So he immediately went into the ground and at the same time withdrew all of his stellar energy. He then stopped using stellar energy and suppressed his entire aura.

    He has won the gamble.

    Sang Mo was really unable to detect him. Once a person stops using his internal energy and suppresses his aura completely, other people basically will not be able to discover his aura. Unless they can detect his holy sense, they will not find him. However, Qin Yus holy sense is superior to Sang Mos.


    Qin Yu rushes upwards like a speeding arrow. At the moment he is only 4 to 5 km away from the ocean surface. In only a short while, he breaks out of the water and shoots straight up into the air.

    Theres someone.

    He quickly discovers that there are Xiuyaoists, who seem to be searching for something, above the ocean. He notices at once that some of those searching Xiuyaoists look familiar. They are none other than some of the Sang clan members he has seen before.

    It seems Sang Mo hasnt given up.

    Qin Yu immediately dives into the water, his heart full of anger. Even though he has been fleeing for his life, he has never thought about going up to the ocean surface to fly away because he knows very well that it is even more dangerous there! There are several reasons.

    Firstly, Xiuyaoists are also capable of flight. Moreover, generally, Xiuyaoists live between only 4 and 5 km deep in the ocean, but experts have holy senses that are over 10 km in range so, with a sweep of their holy senses, not only can they search the ocean, they can even search the sky.

    Secondly, because it is very spacious above the ocean surface, once a silhouette appears in the air, it will soon be noticed whereas, at any rate, there are all kinds of coral, underwater rocks and even underwater mountain ranges at the bottom of the ocean to hide into.

    Thirdly, the area of 100,000 in radius Qin Yu is currently in is still comparatively near the coast of the Qian Long continent. The waters near the coast like this area totally belong to Xiuyaoists. While the nearest island of Xiuxianists or Xiumoists from the coast is 100-odd thousand li away, there may be a Xiuyaoist on any uninhabited island in the areas of water near the coast.

    Fourthly, there is one more reason, that is, it is definitely impossible for him to fly as high into the sky as he pleases!

    Qin Yu knows very well that he will have to face more dangers as he flies higher. At a certain height, he will not be able to ascend anymore. Moreover, according to the descriptions by his master, Lei Wei, there are many terrifying dangers at high altitudes.

    When even Lei Wei called them terrifying, it can be imagined how dangerous it is at extreme heights.

    Since he cannot fly too high into the sky and, even worse, sky is spacious, he would have absolutely nowhere to run if spotted. So, what can he do in this situation? The only thing he can do is to stay underwater. After all, down here it is still possible for him to fish in troubled waters.

    Patriarch already said that Xiuxianist would possibly fly on his sword at some point. Brother, we must look out for him. A Sang clan member reprimands loudly.

    Another Sang clan member says in an unconcerned manner: Why so serious, big brother? Besides our Sang clan, many Xiuyaoists who hanker for that middle-grade holy weapon are also watching for him secretly. Once that Xiuxianist gets careless ha-ha. This Sang clan member laughs very maliciously.

    Qin Yu is exerting the strength of his arms to swim in the ocean like a fish. Having been trained nonstop, his body now can compare with holy weapons and is frighteningly powerful. Even though he is using only physical power, he is still piercing through the water like a speeding arrow.

    Sang Mo, I cant let you chase me all the time. The roles will slowly switch from now on.

    He expands his holy sense. With a shake of his arms, his entire body rushes through the water extremely fast like a fish. When using physical strength alone, he is only one tenth as fast as normal, but this is already enough for him.

    Hey, where do you think that Xiuxianist escaped to, bro?

    What does it matter? Even Patriarch returned with nothing. Lets just take a rest.

    2 members of the Sang clans are going side by side. During this period of time, the Sang clans members have all been troubled by Qin Yu.

    Bro, I didnt expect to be attacked by a good-for-nothing demonic beast. A Sang clan member says laughingly. All of a sudden, he turns around and makes a chop with his hand. But the only thing his eyes can see is Qin Yus Flaming Sword, which penetrates his throat directly in a blow.

    Almost at the same time, Qin Yus left hand sticks into the chest of the other Sang clan member.

    Good-for-nothing demonic beast? Qin Yu gets the 2 jindans then leaves in an instant.

    Because he did not use stellar energy to go through the water, these Xiaoyaoists were not able to feel his aura, but when he came near them, they felt the movements of the water that he was causing. A moment ago, that Sang clan member even thought that he was being attacked by just a common shark. After all, he did not feel any energy or auras.

    With this act, Qin Yu has finally started to strike back!

    Qin Yu was even able to escape when surrounded by Sang Mo and so many other Xiuyaoists, so at the moment it is really very easy for him to avoid the pursuers.

    On the 1st day, when he has just killed 2 Xiuyaoist, his traces are discovered by the Green-eyed fish clan, but immediately afterwards, he goes into hiding. This time he lies low for 3 days, during which time he quietly refines the jindans.

    When a Xiuyaoist approaches, Qin Yu stops refining them. And after that Xiuyaoist has left, he resumes the refinement. In 3 days, the 2 jindans have been refined and absorbed completely.

    He then gets into action again.

    However, this time he is unlucky to have to spend several days to find Sang clan members. Even worse, there are 3 of them together. But Qin Yu goes berserk and explosively unleashes his stellar energy. Through close-quarters combat, he kills all of them, a late Jindan-stage Xiuyaoist and 2 middle Jindan-stage ones, at the first attempt.

    Afterwards, he goes into hiding once more.

    This time, he hides for 10 whole days. When 10 days has passed, he is on the move again

    In 3 entire months, Qin Yu has killed 16 members of the Sang clan. Knowing that one member after another of their clan has died, the rest of the Sang clan seem to be terrified. They then gather in large groups, making it difficult for him to act.

    But Qin Yu is very audacious!

    Even when members of the Sang clan have formed a group, he still dares to sneakily attack them then runs away using the Body Weapon Unification technique. As his power gradually improves, the speed of the Body Weapon Unification also increases bit by bit, even to a point where it is approaching Sang Mos true forms fastest speed.

    Because he attacks sneakily then runs away using the Body Weapon Unification and, moreover, he suppresses his stellar energy to go through the water using his physical power, the enemies basically cannot track him. Even when the Green-eyed fish clan detects him, he can still flee in advance thanks to his holy sense.

    Qin Yu has become murderous. This killing spree has made him murderous.

    Sang Mo, you wanted to corner me first, so dont blame me for wanting to exterminate you clan!

    Sang Mo is holding a jade slip in his hand, which contains that message Qin Yu left him using the holy sense. This jade slip was left behind by Qin Yu right after he had killed the Sang clans members for the first time. Sang Mo can feel clearly the murderous intent that the message carries. He has no doubt at all about Qin Yus intention of destroying his clan. The fact that 30 members of his clan have died in the last half year is the evidence.

    Sang Mos hands are shaking and his facial muscles are twitching.

    At first, the Sang clan had even fewer than 200 members who have reached the Jindan stage in total, but in the last half year alone, 30 of them have died. At this rate, perhaps the Sang clan will be almost finished in 5 years. But Sang Mos current speed is only barely faster than Qin Yus. Worse still, Qin Yu seems to have been able to detect him a step earlier every time.

    Sang Mo simply has no way to catch Qin Yu. After a half year of unsuccessful chasing, Sang Mo has accepted in his heart that he himself is incapable of capturing the enemy.

    Good, good, good!

    A furious Sang Mo says good 3 times in a row. Then, with his eyes flashing with a red light, he takes out from his bosom a transmitter. After considering for a while, he clenches his teeth and immediately sends a voice message using his holy sense: Vice master, please raise the reward of the offer. It will include not only a middle-grade holy weapon, but also my Thunder Hammer!

    In Sang Mos heart, the Thunder Hammer, a high-grade holy weapon, is even as important as his son.

    To Sang Mo, making this decision is just like cutting a chunk of flesh off his heart. A high-grade holy weapon, no less! Even Yuanying-stage experts will be extremely desirous of it. Sang Mo also knows that the Blood-red Caves vice master Cha Ge, whose influence is immense, is among the many Yuanying-stage experts coveting this high-grade holy weapon Thunder Hammer.

    Want to destroy my clan? Then lets see if you can survive those Yuanying-stage experts. Sang Mo slowly says in a low voice, but his low hoarse voice resounds through the main hall, sounding very horrifying.


    (*): In real life, sharks cannot growl.
    (**): The words in my Chinese text are 玄气蚁窝, which to my knowledge make no sense, so I took a liberty by translating them into fire ant (nest), one of the deadliest types of ants that attack in swarms.

    B5C11: The return of Xiao Hei

    In the Blood-red Cave in the Blood-red Ridge,

    Hah, Sang Mo indeed can no longer sit tight. He has even brought out that treasure Thunder Hammer. Red-robed Cha Ge smiles broadly. It is obvious that he is in a very good mood. He has been waiting for this day for so long.

    On one side of him, the silvery-armored guardian who has just delivered the message slightly bows and says: Vice master, this Thunder Hammer is a high-grade holy weapon while the target is just a Xiuxianist who hasnt even reached the Yuanying stage. This is really a piece of cake. There are quite a few Yuanying experts in the Blood-red Ridge. Perhaps most of them will emerge.

    Youre wrong. This missions not simple at all. Cha Ge stands up, slightly raises his chin then says smilingly in a haughty manner. Tell me, when the target is only a Xiuxianist who hasnt even reached the Yuanying stage, why has Sang Mo been unable to catch him for so long?

    That silvery-armored guardian becomes doubtful: Thats right. What does this sub-Yuanying Xiuxianist rely on?

    Obviously having thought everything out, Cha Ge continues: Let me remind you a bit again, Sang Mo even asked 30 members of the Green-eyed fish clan to help him.

    Members of the Green-eyed fish clan? The silvery-armored guardian is slightly startled. The northernmost area of 100,000 li in radius is really too far from this Blood-red Ridge -- being several million li away -- so most Xiuyaoists here do not know about some methods Sang Mo have used to chase Qin Yu.

    Cha Ge was only able to find out about them thanks to the Blood-red Caves intelligence.

    That secret fish-controlling technique of the Green-eyed fish clans members is very capable. That Xiuxianist also doesnt have a demonic aura so he mustve been detected with ease. Once he was found out, given Sang Mos power, he shouldve been able to catch that Xiuxianist very easily. The silvery-armored guardian says continuously.

    However, as soon as he thinks about the outcome, he does not understand at all why Sang Mo has not been able to capture that Xiuxianist for so long.

    Why hasnt he been able to catch him? Could this Xiuxianist have some special technique? The silvery-armored guardian mumbles to himself. He really cannot figure this out.

    Cha Ge however looks him and says confidently with a smile: Right, whats actually happened? I can see only 2 possible answers. First, that Xiuxianist has a special skill for hiding his aura, which can make it impossible for Sang Mo to catch him. Second, that Xiuxianist is extremely fast when riding his sword, so fast that Sang Mo cant catch up with him.

    The silvery-armored guardian nods thoughtfully.

    Its probably very hard for a mere sub-Yuanying Xiuxianist to hide his aura in front of Sang Mo. He says after thinking for a while.

    Cha Ge says with a nod: Correct. Therefore its most probable that this Xiuxianist is simply too fast for Sang Mo to catch up with. Also, according to my info, Sang Mo has chased him many times, and even when the distance between them was only as short as several tens li, that Xiuxianist was still able to escape.

    The silvery-armored guardian says in amazement: Such fast speed. Vice master, Sang Mos true form is an octopus. At his fastest speed, not even I can keep up with him. How was a Xiuxianist who hasnt reached the Yuanying stage able to lose him?

    Cha Ge gives a brilliant smile and gently utters 2 words from his mouth: Flying sword!

    The silvery-armored guardian is stupefied, but his eyes blaze after a short while.

    When a person with not a lot of power can fly fast on his flying sword, it is highly possible that the flying sword itself is very good. Of course, another possibility is that he has a special method for riding swords. But Cha Ge really believes that the flying sword used by that Xiuxianist is of high quality.

    Judging from the info I got, this Xiuxianists flying sword is at least a high-grade holy weapon. Cha Ge actually wanted to say top-grade holy weapon because he knows very well how extraordinary Sang Mos speed is.

    But how can a mere sub-Yuanying-stage Xiuxianist possibly have a top-grade holy weapon?

    After all, even a Dongxu-stage expert has to be exceptionally extravagant to be able to possess a top-grade holy weapon. In the overseas Xiuzhen world, perhaps no schools are willing to give a top-grade holy weapon to a Xiuxianist who has not even reached the Yuanying stage.

    Even if it is only a high-grade holy weapon, this will already be hard to believe.

    Perhaps that Xiuxianist had a lucky encounter or something in which he got this high-grade holy weapon by chance. Cha Ge thinks so in his mind.

    Suddenly --

    Pa! Pa! Pa!

    Clapping sounds rise behind him. A man who is very similar to Cha Ge walks out. Just looking at him, one would associate him with a sinister poisonous snake. This man is none other than the other vice master Cha Po.

    3rd brother, what you just said is very brilliant. Do you mind me going with you to capture that Xiuxianist? Cha Po says smilingly.

    Cha Ge curses in his heart while his face slightly changes color.

    Damn you Cha Po. You already got a high-grade holy weapon of your own. Ive been waiting for so long for the appearance of the Thunder Hammer. Just now I got the news that itd appeared and was able to guess that that Xiuxianist has at least a high-grade holy weapon. It was double joys for me, but youve come to fight me for them. Are you still my brother?!

    He is extremely furious inwardly. Even though he is suppressing his anger, his expression still looks very ugly.

    2nd brother, it seems big brother already gave you the high-grade holy weapon he got last time, right? But I dont have any. Cha Ge says indignantly. He has mentioned that past event immediately without beating around the bush.

    When Cha Po hears this, he of course totally understands at once that his 3rd brother is thinking that he has come to contend for the holy weapons. He immediately says with a loud laugh: 3rd brother, youre being a bit too petty. You should know me better than that. I already got a high-grade holy weapon, why would I hanker after another? Its just that Im feeling bored with staying in the cave so I want to go out together with you for a change.

    Really? Cha Ge is somewhat unconvinced.

    Cha Po suddenly says with a stare: 3rd brother, I swear to Heaven that if I wanted to snatch those holy weapons, Id be struck to death by a thunderbolt. Damn it, were brothers, do you think Im the type who covets his own brothers treasures?

    Cha Ge has a change of heart. Now he believes Cha Po. He knows his 2nd brothers character very well, only that just now his mind was clouded by his concern. He says with a ha-ha laugh immediately: 2nd brother, dont be angry. All right, lets go right now.

    Cha Po says laughingly: This is better. All right, Ive messaged that Sang Mo to ask his 30 Green-eyed fish clan members help us monitor the area and to tell us when something happens.

    Excellent. Lets go! Cha Ge also bursts out laughing. The 2 vice masters of the Blood-red Cave then leave the cave together. The true forms of this Cha Ge and his brother Cha Po are 2 blood-red aquatic pythons, which are a top-level species of snake.

    In terms of power, even though Cha Ge is also at the early phase of the Yuanying stage, he is already stronger than Sang Mo, not to mention middle Yuanying-stage Cha Po.

    In an underwater green mountain range that runs continuously for several thousand li, a man is sitting with legs crossed in a cave on the side of a seamount practicing. An indistinct cloud is spinning nonstop around his body while 3 jindans are floating in his vicinity.

    After a long time, the indistinct cloud begins to shrink then fuses with that silhouette. Only now does the silhouette become clear. It is none other than Qin Yu. Compared to a half year ago, the current Qin Yu has a hint of coldness on his forehead.

    He suddenly opens his eyes, shooting out an ice-cold clear look.

    After refining so many jindans, I unexpectedly havent reached the late Nebula stage. A hint of powerlessness appears on his face.

    When he refines a jindan, the impure energy, which makes up most of it, is burnt up by his Stellar Flame. Only the 10% essence of the jindan remaining in the end is absorbed by him. For the last half year, Qin Yu has killed 32 members of the Sang clan but most of them were at the early Jindan stage and only a few had reached the middle phase of the Jindan stage. As for late Jindan-stage Xiuyaoists, there were 3 of them altogether.

    According to Qin Yus original estimation, he would have to refine 10 late jindans to reach the late phase of the Nebula stage.

    He has refined 32 jindans for the last half year, but they unexpectedly have less energy in total than 10 late jindans. However, because the difference is not very great and, in addition, he has been practicing every day, he now has a feeling that he is going to reach the late phase of the Nebula stage soon.

    Currently Im almost at the peak of the middle Nebula stage. In terms of speed, Im also a bit faster than Sang Mo. Qin Yu gives a faint smile.

    For the last half year, he did not run to the 100,000-li radius northernmost area at all because he knew very well that this area had the most chasers. Therefore, he has always headed south, even when he was fleeing.

    Sometimes he also turned east or west temporarily, but he has never returned to the north.

    For the last half year, Qin Yu either practiced or hunted enemies down or hurried south with all his power. By now he has unexpectedly advanced more than 1 million li. He also used the Soul Examination when killing some members of the Sang clans so he has finally understood why his whereabouts have always been discovered.

    Green-eyed fish clan members. Qin Yus heart is filled with frustration.

    The fish controlled by the members of the Green-eyed fish clan look almost the same as common fish. At least Qin Yu cannot see the differences between them. Moreover, because fish are the most abundant animal in the boundless ocean, it is really difficult for him to avoid those controlled fish, which watch him from shoals of fish.

    Therefore, the only thing Qin Yu has been able to do is bypass shoals of fish as much as possible. He could still be detected, but because has paid attention to shoals of fish, the frequency by which he is spotted has dropped sharply.

    Xiao Hei is unexpectedly even faster than me. Hes to my southwest. Qin Yu shuts his eyes. His mind can feel Xiao Heis general direction. Long earlier he felt that Xiao Hei was not very far from him, but Xiao Hei seemed to have been chased because he was rushing south nonstop at a very fast speed.

    Qin Yu became very worried at that time as he thought the reason Xiao Hei was running extremely fast instead of meeting him had to be him encountering some danger. Qin Yu thus began to chase south with all his might. However, he found that, the more he chased, the further the distance between him and Xiao Hei grew.

    Qin Yu therefore concluded that Xiao Heis speed was too fast, much faster than his speed when using the Passing Lightning Flashing Nine Times before, and that it was even possible that his speed had improved 100%. Unable to catch up with Xiao Hei, Qin Yu could only give up unwillingly in the end.

    Qin Yu also guessed how Xiao Hei had been able to become so fast. He thought that Xiao Hei either had greatly improved his power thanks to eating up many demonic beasts or was using some secret travelling skill.

    But he never thought that Xiao Hei had used a forbidden technique to change himself completely. Xiao Hei has remodeled himself entirely with it and is totally different from the past in every respect. However, because it is a forbidden technique, it is also not so perfect.

    Ive even been away from Xiao Hei for a half year.

    He smiles then comes out of the cave like a beam of light. Immediately afterwards, he rushes southeast. Except for when he encountered some Xiuyaoist, he has always hurried towards Xiao Heis location.

    Oh, Xiao Hei is coming towards me as well.

    A happy expression instantly appears on his face. He begins to rush in Xiao Heis direction at once. But covering the distance is only a secondary objective to him. On the way, if he encounters weak unreasonable Xiuyaoists, or members of the Sang clan who want to chase him, he will not show any mercy.

    As Qin Yu alternates between going and practicing, 3 months quickly passes.

    It has been very strange during these 3 months because the Sang clan members seemed to have stopped hunting for him. Qin Yu has basically not detected any members of the Sang clan for the last 3 months, and as a result, he has been able to travel much faster than before. In only 3 months, he has travelled almost the same distance as in the previous half year.

    He has already covered more than 1 million li. Having gone such a long distance, he cannot help getting emotional.

    Since Xiao Hei has been coming towards him and they have yet to meet for such a long time, it can be imagined how far Xiao Hei went in the beginning. At the moment, Qin Yu is about 3 million li away from the Qian Long continent. The distance that Xiao Hei has travelled for the last 3 months is definitely not shorter than the distance Qin Yu has travelled over the last half year.

    This also means that for the last half year, Xiao Hei has travelled at least 4 to 5 million li, or even maybe more.

    He has not been chased so much like Qin Yu, but being able to cover such a long distance in just a half year shows how terrifying his speed is.

    Qin Yu is riding on his flying sword to go through the water. His heart is filled with joy. At the moment he can feel that there are only several tens thousand li left between him and Xiao Hei and it will take them less than a day to reunite with each other. This kind of feeling is very mysterious but he totally believes it.

    Xiao Hei, Im coming.

    Piercing through the water like a beam of light, he has reached his maximum speed.


    Riding their flying swords, the 2 brothers Cha Ge and Cha Po are going through shoals of fish and coral reefs. It has been very comfortable for them for last 3 months because they have alternated between heading west with going to the mansions of some Xiuyaoists to indulge in extravagant eating and drinking.

    2nd brother, these Green-eyed fish clan members are really very useless. Cha Ge says spitefully.

    The Green-eyed fish clan members now have much lower efficiency in gathering information about Qin Yu than before. Of course, the reason of this is that Qin Yu became aware of the threat that shoals of fish pose to him through using the Soul Examination and subsequently often avoided them. Currently the Green-eyed fish clan members can only get a piece of information in every day or two.

    The message they received the day before yesterday says that theoretically Qin Yu is only 100,000 li away from them.

    Cha Po says with a smile: Dont worry. According to the message we got 2 days ago and judging from that Xiuxianists speed, perhaps theres only a short distance left between us and him. We can encounter him anytime in the next 2 days so you better be watchful using your holy sense.

    Rest assured, I definitely wont let him go. An evil smile appears on the corners of Cha Ges mouth. He has been longing for a high-grade holy weapon for such a long time now.

    Suddenly Cha Po says with glittering eyes: Hah, a late Jindan black eagle. Its very hard to come by a bird that dares to go deep into the ocean. You stay here first, 3rd brother. I havent tasted a birds flesh for so long already. As Cha Po is saying this, he shoots northwards like a beam of light.

    Wait for me, 2nd brother. Ill come to try its flesh too!

    Cha Ge gives a loud laugh then chases after Cha Po like a beam of light as well.

    B5C12: 2 brothers vs. 2 brothers

    Big brother!

    Like a beam of light, Xiao Hei pierces through the water extremely fast. His eyes are flashing with excitement. He can feel that Qin Yu is very near him and the 2 of them will be able to meet each other again soon. After all, they have already been separated for so long.

    On the Qian Long continent, Qin Yu and Xiao Hei were never away from each other for such a long time. They are about to reunite so at the moment they are certainly very excited.

    No good, theres someone. Xiao Heis holy sense has quickly discovered that 2 Xiuyaoists are charging at him at extreme speeds. Judging by the feeling he gets from his holy sense alone, Xiao Hei can confirm in an instant that they are absolutely experts. Unlike Qin Yu, he does not have the nourishment of the Meteoric Tear so his holy sense is not formidable at all. Because Cha Ge has reached the early Yuanying stage while that Cha Po is even a middle Yuanying-stage expert, his holy sense is naturally weaker than theirs.

    In a moment, 2 silhouettes appear in front of Xiao Hei. They are none other than the Blood-red Caves 2 vice masters, Cha Ge and Cha Po.

    Hah, its indeed a bird. A bird going down to the seabed, oh my, this is really suicide. Cha Ge says in a strange voice. His eyes occasionally flash with cold, sinister rays of light. Even the blood-red robe on his body is emitting a cold, sinister aura with high frequency.

    Cha Po looks at Xiao Hei and immediately reaches out a hand to make a grab at him.

    Xiao Hei is staring at these 2 Xiuyaoists. Suddenly, he flaps a wing. Because it moves extremely fast, it turns into a black blur and hits Cha Pos hand squarely. Surprisingly, Cha Pos hand is deflected away and blood starts oozing out of its skin.

    You even dared to injure me?! The cold light in Cha Pos eyes suddenly intensifies. Obviously he has become extremely angry.

    In the eyes of Cha Po, a late Jindan-stage bird is simply a piece of cake. After all, the 2 of them are basically not on the same level.

    Ha-ha 2nd brother, I didnt think youd get hurt, and even worse, by a mere sub-Yuanying bird. This is really laughable. On one side, taking pleasure in his brothers failure, Cha Ge says while laughing out loud with his hands holding his own belly.

    Cha Po of course knows Cha Ge is doing so on purpose.

    You dared to hurt me, so dont blame me for showing no mercy, little bird. He says coldly. His entire body then turns into a blur and charges straight at Xiao Hei. Cha Po is a middle Yuanying-stage expert after all so, despite not using his true form, he is still much faster than Sang Mos true form.

    However at the moment Xiao Hei is not the same as he was a half year ago.

    After absorbing many demonic beasts, he has broken through the middle phase of the Jindan stage to reach the late phase. In addition to this, he has been transformed by that forbidden technique. Therefore, his speed has improved more than 100% over the last half year. Now, even Qin Yu is nowhere near as powerful as him.

    A black light beam flashes away extremely fast.

    What a fast speed. How can that bird still move so fast underwater? Cha Ge, who is watching the fight on one side, cannot help getting astonished. He quickly finds that Xiao Heis speed is even faster than Cha Pos.

    Following that exceptionally quick exchange of blows, Cha Po and Xiao Hei move apart in the blink of an eye.

    The former then looks coldly at the latter: No wonder a late Jindan bird like you dares to run wild at the bottom of the ocean. It turns out youve got some special skills. Youre really fast. Perhaps no Xiuyaoists of your power level can be as fast as you. As Cha Po is saying, drops of blood are trickling down from his left hand.

    I have an important thing to do, dont block my way.

    Xiao Hei says via his holy sense in an ice-cold voice. He has also realized that the opponent is very powerful. Worse still, he has not even used his true form yet. Therefore, Xiao Hei has no intention of taking the offensive either.

    Whoa, 2nd brother, Im surprised that you were injured by a late Jindan bird. With his eyes brightening, Cha Ge adds fuel to the fire. You better not fight if you cant win, otherwise itd be very bad if you got killed by this bird. Do you want me to help you, 2nd brother?

    Cha Pos face turns cold. He shouts angrily: No need. You just stay aside and watch.

    Oh my, then Ill keep watching your performance. Cha Ge then just looks on from one side and says no more. He also knows he should stop before going too far. After all, if he said more and made his 2nd brother mad, the result of this would be very terrifying.

    Cha Po reaches out his hands. 2 daggers suddenly appear in them. Both of these daggers radiate a blue light. Obviously they have been coated with poison.

    I hate those who are arrogant to me the most, especially being arrogant without power to back it up. Cha Po says coldly. Xiao Hei, however, simply remains silent and stares at him directly with his eagle eyes, which seem to be able to pierce through his soul.

    Cha Po feels very uncomfortable being stared at by Xiao Hei.

    Growl ~~

    A deep growl comes out from Cha Pos mouth. On one side, Cha Ge changes his countenance abruptly and thinks to himself: This sucks. 2nd brother has really gone mad. Is it really worth getting mad at this bird? He immediately backs away several li.

    Holding a dagger in each hand, Cha Po charges at Xiao Hei like a beam of light at his fastest speed.

    Pa! Pa!

    In an instant, Xiao Heis eyes brighten and send out 2 blood-red flashes of lightning. Yes, they are blood-red, looking as if they are formed from a blood-red flame each. This is one of the changes that have happened to Xiao Hei as a result of him using that forbidden technique.

    Cha Po is very fast, but he is not as fast as the flashes, which immediately hit him. His body cannot help going numb. At the same time, he notices the appearance of a strange force, which seems to be both absorptive and corrosive.

    Whats that?

    Cha Po, astonished, activates the energy in his body to resist it at once. That strange forces corrosive effect is really very strong. In just a moment, it leaves a wound on Cha Pos body. Luckily for Cha Po, he has quickly destroyed Xiao Heis energy with his internal demonic elemental energy.

    No longer daring to be careless, Cha Po activates his entire bodys protective demonic elemental energy, ready to defend against Xiao Heis attacks anytime.

    Xiao Hei shakes his wings once, shooting out various blood-red flashes of lightning. Compared to the ones in the past, these blood-red flashes have the same lightning offensive power but, at the same time, they are also capable of absorbing and corroding. Being struck down at by several tens flashes, even Cha Ge gets muddled up.

    Growl ~~

    He opens his mouth wide and growls. Then his mouth unexpectedly begins to enlarge, turning into a huge python mouth. His body also transforms into a shockingly massive, sinuous blood-red python.

    This is a blood-red aquatic python that is almost 100 m long and whose body is twice as thick as an ordinary bucket.

    With a swing of his tail, the pythons 100 m long body starts to move. In an instant, the area within several hundred meters of him is covered by his attacks. Because this blood-red aquatic python is frighteningly fast, this area is full of red blurs.


    Even though Xiao Heis speed is astonishing, the speed of this middle Yuanying-stage expert Cha Pos true form is even more terrifying. A red blur flashes by Xiao Hei and he is immediately sent flying.

    Just now Xiao Heis body was hit by a fierce sweep of the pythons tail.

    I like to eat strong demonic beast the most. Cha Pos voice rises in Xiao Heis mind through holy sense communication. He then opens wide the frightening mouth of his huge python body and rushes at Xiao Hei like a beam of light.

    Xiao Heis eyes are extraordinary. The blood-red aquatic python is very fast but he can still see his every single movement clearly, including even the movements of his tongue.

    Chirp ~~

    A light starts to flash on and off on Xiao Heis crown. He utters a shrill cry, which causes the water in his entire surroundings to vibrate for a short time and move outwards in all directions simultaneously, forming strong, surging undercurrents. Moreover, at this moment, the moonlight in the sky goes straight into the ocean.

    Whats going on? Cha Po is startled.

    He sees the moonlight shine on Xiao Hei in its entirety then spread out all over his body. Xiao Hei, who has been enveloped the moonlight, suddenly sends out a terrifying aura. Cha Po is secretly shocked because he can feel that fearsome aura clearly.

    This is bad. Xiao Hei is using that special skill. Could he have run into a danger? Hearing that shrill cry, Qin Yu knows that Xiao Hei is in a difficult situation because the same skill was used to deal with Xiang Yang last time. He immediately accelerates.


    Because he has already almost reached his top speed, even though he starts to go all out from this moment, he can only run a bit faster.

    Feeling that this is not good, Cha Po swings his body violently at once. It looks like the pythons body is going to hit Xiao Hei squarely, but there seems to be a layer of air moving around Xiao Heis body at the moment, and as a result, the swing is completely parried away.

    Xiao Hei spreads his wings and flaps very gently once. The light on his body is instantly concentrated on the edges of the wings. Right afterwards, it shoots out at Cha Po in the form of 2 light-colored crescent blades. Giving Cha Po basically no time to dodge, the 2 crescent blades of light hit his body extremely fast.

    Chi chi ~~~

    Their strong corrosive effect immediately damages Cha Pos scales. Cha Po yells miserably. At the same time, various streams of demonic elemental energy surge forth through his body, and in just about a moment, the 2 crescent blades of light disappear.

    However, two 2 to 3 m long parts on Cha Pos 100 m long blood-red aquatic python body have been damaged. Most of the scales on these 2 parts have been corroded to the point where even the flesh underneath is exposed. However, these are merely flesh wounds.

    Growl ~~~

    The blood-red aquatic python gives a mad growl. His entire body then charges at Xiao Hei continuously like a serpentine red thunderbolt. Xiao Hei dodges nonstop like a black beam of light. This fight between an eagle and a python is really intense.

    No good. This pythons demonic elemental energy is frighteningly strong. Xiao Hei feels that his situation is not good. A middle Yuanying-stage Xiuyaoists demonic elemental energy is several times more powerful than his. Even worse, blood-red aquatic pythons are an extremely fearsome species of snake. In just a while, the wounds on the pythons body have already been covered in new scales, only that these scales are very weak.

    Snakes regularly shed their skins so it is not difficult for a middle Yuanying-stage blood-red aquatic python to regenerate his scales. The only problem is that the new scales are not as strong defensively as the old ones.


    Cha Pos voice suddenly rises in Xiao Heis mind. Immediately, a green beam of light is shot at Xiao Hei from the blood-red aquatic pythons mouth. As an experienced fighter, Xiao Hei has long been prepared for something like this. With a sweep of his holy sense, he finds out that this green light is a thin flying sword.

    He also opens his mouth, and a flash of lightning is shot out.


    The flash and the green light collide. Xiao Hei suddenly utters a painful cry. Blood spurts out of his throat. That flash of lightning is actually the high-grade holy awl that he forged. Even though both he and Cha Po use high-grade holy weapons, Cha Pos demonic elemental energy is several times more powerful than his.

    Therefore, Xiao Hei has been badly injured by the head-on collision of the weapons.

    Hah, a high-grade holy weapon! Cha Po becomes excited.

    Xiao Hei however makes a shake of his wings and cuts through the water to run away extremely fast like a thin black beam of light.

    Dont think about escaping!

    Cha Pos massive blood-red aquatic python body also pierces through the water like a red thunderbolt. The pursued and the pursuer -- an eagle and a blood-red aquatic python -- quickly disappear. However, the direction Xiao Hei is fleeing in at the moment is -- the south!

    He knows Qin Yus power level. When he himself, who has reached the late Jindan stage and even used a forbidden technique, is unable to win against Cha Po, Qin Yu will definitely be killed if he gets involved in this situation. Therefore, Xiao Hei of course does not run towards Qin Yu.

    A beam of light chases after them but then it stops. This is none other than Cha Ge.

    He looks in the direction Cha Po has disappeared in and lets out a cold humph, feeling very frustrated. Because his speed is fairly slower than Cha Pos, he was only able to chase several tens li before his holy sense could no longer detect Cha Po and Xiao Hei within its range.

    Xiao Hei, make sure nothing bad happens to you.

    Qin Yu is very anxious inwardly. Piercing through the water, he rushes in Xiao Heis direction at his fastest speed. After a while, he feels a chaotic aura so he stops at once.

    Looking at traces of blood floating in the water, he can feel Xiao Heis aura clearly.

    This place is where Xiao Hei and Cha Po fought each other just now. The blood floating here consists of both Xiao Heis blood and Cha Pos.

    Xiao Hei has fought here and even been injured. Qin Yu quickly figures out what happened. Feeling that Xiao Hei is running south extremely fast, he knows that Xiao Hei is being chased by someone and, moreover, he is fleeing south in order not to entangle him.

    Ha-ha, I never thought that Id strike lucky after 2nd brother had chased that black eagle. My dear Xiuxianist, Ive been looking for you for a very long time.

    Following the loud laughter, a very thin man robed in red appears not far from Qin Yu. That mans eyes are blazing and flashing.

    Qin Yus face changes color. Just now, because he discovered traces of Xiao Heis blood, for a while he trembled in his heart with worry about Xiao Hei and also paid no attention to his surroundings. Unexpectedly, during this short period of time, Cha Ge returned in disappointment after failing to catch up with his 2nd brother and immediately detected Qin Yu.

    Discovering that Qin Yu does not have a demonic aura and judging from the fact that the Green-eyed fish clans most recent message says that the Xiuxianist is currently in this area, Cha Ge naturally was able to figure out Qin Yus real identity.

    An early Yuanying fella, plus his demonic aura seems even stronger than Sang Mo. Qin Yu quickly makes a judgment. Im only at the middle Nebula stage. For the moment I cant even handle Sang Mo. This man seems not weaker than Sang Mo.

    He has secretly made a decision.

    Who are you? He says coldly.

    I am Cha Ge says haughtily, but when he has just said I am, Qin Yu immediately rides his flying sword and uses the Body Weapon Unification technique to flee west. In just about a moment, he has already got away several km.

    Cha Ge is furious: You dared to fool me?!

    Riding his flying sword, he chases after Qin Yu at once. Blood-red aquatic pythons are much more gifted than octopuses. But the octopus family has a great number of members while blood-red aquatic pythons are very rare, amounting to just a few individuals at a time.

    So fast.

    Qin Yu is shocked to find out that Cha Ge, who is riding a flying sword, unexpectedly does not fall behind him. After chasing for a while, noticing that he has not been able to close on Qin Yu, Cha Ge turns into a 70 to 80 m long blood-red aquatic python while letting out a yell then chases after Qin Yu extremely fast.

    A blood-red aquatic pythons speed in the ocean is simply frighteningly fast so the distance between Cha Ge and Qin Yu decreases very quickly at once.

    B5C13: Deadly poison

    As the blood-red aquatic python pierces through the ocean, his huge body makes the water in his vicinity become turbulent. His 2 red eyes, filled with a sinister iciness, are staring directly at Qin Yu, who is running away extremely fast ahead of him.

    The distance between them grows shorter and shorter.

    This python is even a bit faster than Sang Mo. Qin Yu takes a look backwards. The coldness in his eyes suddenly intensifies. Clenching his teeth, he unexpectedly stops completely in an instant. The blood-red aquatic python seems to never have anticipated that Qin Yu would halt abruptly, but he reacts very quickly and stops before ramming into Qin Yu.

    He stares at Qin Yu with his red eyes then turns into a human again with a shake of his body.

    Sang Mo, Ive found him. Just wait and get that Thunder Hammer ready, ha-ha Cha Ge complacently sends a message to Sang Mo through his transmitter. At the moment he is totally confident because by feeling Qin Yus aura he knows that Qin Yus power level is only around the middle phase of the Jindan stage. This kind of Xiuxianist is definitely no match for him even if they use a high-grade holy weapon.

    Then Ill wait for your good news, vice master.

    As Cha Ge is staring at Qin Yu before him, a faint cold smile appears on the corners of his mouth.

    How are you, Xiuxianist? He tauntingly greets Qin Yu. He has never feared anyone within the territory of the Blood-red Cave. At the moment, Qin Yu is slower than him so he even feels like playing a game of cat and mouse.

    Qin Yu has known very well since he heard the sentence Ive been looking for you for a very long time. that the Xiuyaoist in front of him has been hunting for him, perhaps also because of Sang Mos reward offer.

    Xiuyaoist, I can see that youre not weaker than Sang Mo. Im surprised that someone like you wants to hunt me down. Youre doing this for a middle-grade holy weapon or a favor from him? He says indifferently and calmly while looking at Cha Ge.

    For the moment Qin Yu has no intention of using the Meteor Escaping Art to flee either. After all, having experienced the pains caused by the Meteoric Tear after he used it last time, he will not easily rely on it again.

    Ha-ha Sang Mo, you said that idiot Sang Mo? Cha Ge laughs out loud loftily. Whats the use of a middle-grade holy weapon? How can it make me hunt for you? He disdains a middle-grade holy weapon very much.

    Oh? Looks like you want a favor from Sang Mo. Qin Yu says laughingly.

    Cha Ge says with a shake of his head: Favor? No. He looks at Qin Yu with a hint of amusement in his eyes. Given Sang Mos puny power and position, his favor is a worthless piece of crap to me. I can order him directly as I please, so why would I want a favor from him?

    Qin Yu is secretly startled.

    The man before him unexpectedly can give Sang Mo orders. At first he only thought that Cha Ge was someone of the same level as Sang Mo, but now it looks like he has underestimated the opponent.

    Then why are you chasing me? Qin Yu is very calm.

    Oh, my cute Xiuxianist, it seems you still dont know that in order to hunt you down, Sang Mo has raised the reward. Cha Ge says laughingly in a casual manner. However, Im chasing you not only because of the high-grade holy weapon that Sang Mo has offered as the reward, but also because of the high-grade holy weapon on your body.

    My high-grade holy weapon?

    Qin Yu looks at Cha Ge. His expression freezes in an instant.

    Ha-ha Dont deny it. The flying sword you rode just now must be a high-grade holy weapon. Otherwise, how could you have been so fast? Frankly, I think not even a high-grade holy weapon can help a middle Jindan Xiuxianist like you move so fast. Ah, dont tell me that your flying sword is a top-grade holy weapon.

    Cha Ges eyes immediately blaze.

    Even though he cannot believe that a Jindan-stage Xiuxianist can possess a top-grade holy weapon, Qin Yus speed just now has greatly shocked him. A blood-red aquatic python is very fast in the ocean and, moreover, he has reached the early Yuanying stage and was using his true form, but he was only able to go a bit faster than Qin Yu.

    Could it be this is really a top-grade holy flying sword?

    Top-grade holy weapon? How about this? Ill give you my flying sword and youll pretend that youve never seen me. Struck by a thought, Qin Yu says smilingly. Concurrently with this, the Flaming Sword appears in his hand then floats up under his control.

    Cha Ge is startled. He moves his eyes around then says with a he-he laugh: In fact I only want a holy weapon. Since youre already so sensible, I wont trouble myself either. Ill take the flying sword.

    After saying so, with a movement of his body, Cha Ge makes a grab at the sword.

    This stupid brat, Ill take his flying sword first and immediately personalize it then kill him. Even he finds it rather troublesome to have to fight a user of a high-grade holy weapon.

    Now that the opponent has offered him that weapon, he is naturally glad to take it.

    According to his thinking, the opponent is merely at around the middle Jindan stage so his soul should not be strong either, and therefore it will take him just a little while to forcibly personalize that flying sword.

    Suddenly --

    Hu hu ~~

    Stellar energy rushes forth from inside Qin Yus body in the blink of an eye and forms a huge nebular maelstrom. Qin Yus eyes flash with coldness. The nebula in his dantian begins to rotate extremely fast too. His entire stellar energy has been unleashed.

    The Stellar Field!

    You even dare Seeing this scene, Cha Ge knows that the opponent wants to attack. He is also not a fool to grab that flying sword now because the opponent can easily control the sword to attack.


    In just a moment, Qin Yu turns into several illusions. However, for some reason, he is not using the Flaming Gloves at all. Qin Yus illusions have surrounded Cha Ge. At almost the same time, the illusions launch different attacks at Cha Ge such as punches, finger swords, knife hand strikes and so on.


    Cha Ge turns his face upwards, laughing out loud. The demonic elemental energy in his whole body surges forth and unexpectedly shakes away all of Qin Yus strikes.

    Qin Yu clenches his teeth. In an instant, he suddenly splits into 6 illusions, which, with a twist of their waists, immediately begin to rotate fiercely. Concurrently with this, they swing their right legs violently like windmill blades and hit Cha Ges neck with no mercy.


    After hitting Cha Ges neck, the 6 illusions disappear, leaving behind only Qin Yus real body, whose one leg is currently on Cha Ges neck.

    In terms of attack resistance, we blood-red aquatic pythons arent weaker than divine dragons. At this moment, Cha Ge says to Qin Yu. A layer of scales has unexpectedly emerged on his neck, rendering all of Qin Yus close-quarters attacks ineffective.

    Qin Yu does a backflip then retreats very far.

    Close-quarters attacks are fairly effective against humans, whose bodies are relatively weak, but they are much less useful against Xiuyaoists. The reason of this is that the true forms of quite a few Xiuyaoists make them extremely formidable physically, for example, blood-red aquatic pythons, aquatic dragons, horned dragons, and so on.

    Very strong attack resistance indeed. Qin Yu says in wonderment.

    Hearing Qin Yus praise, Cha Ge feels even more proud of himself, but he still says: Though youre a Xiuxianist, your physical power is really very formidable. In fact your last strike just now forced me to use my protective scaly armor.

    Qin Yu says in admiration: Such attacks by me couldnt break your defense, and you havent even used your true form yet. Its true that Xiuyaoists are much more powerful than humans at any given power level. But I wont give up.

    If not for that high-grade holy weapon, Id really be unwilling to kill you. Cha Ge says so, but at the same time he moves like a flash. 2 daggers appear in his hands and he thrusts them straight towards Qin Yu. The blades of the daggers radiate a green cold light.

    Deadly poison.

    Just die. Qin Yu says in his mind. The nebula around him starts to spin extremely fast again. The Stellar Field is executed once more, just like how it was used just now. He controls the Flaming Sword to block the daggers and throws 2 punches at Cha Ge using his hands.

    Cha Ge cannot help giving a faint smile.

    After experiencing Qin Yus attacks moments ago, he already knew that Qin Yus offensive force at least cannot injure him. In order to be safe, he covers his body in a layer of protective scaly armor, which is formed from his scales.

    Of course, his current defense is not as astonishing as when he switches to his true form, but this is still a high level of defense.


    Qin Yu clenches his teeth tightly to a point where even his blood gushes out. A frightening, cold beam of light suddenly shoots out from his eyes. While coming at Cha Ge, his fists suddenly open and turn into 2 spear-hand strikes (*), which have the most powerful penetrating offensive forces. At the same time, the Flaming Gloves appear.

    Pu! Pu!

    The fierce penetrating forces coupled with the high-grade holy weapon Flaming Gloves are simply irresistible. Qin Yus spear hand strikes immediately break that layer of scaly armor then pierce through it, aiming to finish this blood-red aquatic python off by smashing his internal organs.

    However --

    Growl ~~~

    The moment the scaly armor is penetrated, a series of deep growls rises. In an instant, Cha Ges body unexpectedly transforms into a 70 to 80 m long blood-red aquatic python, which immediately attempts to wrap his body around Qin Yu, wanting to strangle him to death.

    Cunning Xiuxianist, Im going to eat you!

    Cha Ges furious voice rises in Qin Yus mind. He has really been enraged, because Qin Yu has plotted against him twice.

    The 1st time, Qin Yu took the initiative and ran away in the middle of a conversation with him. The 2nd time, Qin Yu did not use the Flaming Gloves when attacking in the beginning to make him miscalculate the difference in power between them.

    Therefore, when Qin Yu attacked again, Cha Ge was careless and had to pay a great price for this.

    With a shaking movement of his body, Qin Yu avoids the pythons incoming wrapping attack like lightning. He then immediately says via his holy sense: Blood-red aquatic python, just now you were lucky that I couldnt kill you in one hit. But even though I didnt penetrate your heart, it still got a shock from my penetrating force and was injured pretty bad, right?

    Cha Ge of course has been injured and, even worse, injured very seriously.

    Due to the close-quarters strikes Qin Yu had used in his 1st attack attempt, Cha Ge misjudged Qin Yus power. He thought that his protective scaly armor was more than sufficient and did not even use his demonic elemental energy to defend himself at all. As a result, in Qin Yus 2nd attack attempt, relying on the high-grade holy weapon Flaming Gloves, Qin Yu was able to breach the scaly armor directly with 2 spear hand strikes.

    Moreover, the spear hand strikes did not only deal damage through Qin Yus physical body, but also through the penetrating forces they carried, which went into Cha Ges body through his flesh and injured his heart.

    Yaaaa ... You pissed me off!!!

    The blood-red aquatic python swings his body nonstop, completely disturbing the water in his surroundings. However, a mouthful of blood suddenly spurts from his mouth. The heart is a vital part so even though it was only shaken up by Qin Yus penetrating forces, he has been severely injured.

    With a solemn expression, Qin Yu makes a hand sign then immediately shouts: Illusion Spreading Sword Art -- Starry Starry Night!

    His Flaming Sword flies upwards and creates a blurry area in the blink of an eye. Countless sword silhouettes shoot straight at the blood-red aquatic python from that area. As Qin Yu sees this scene, a faint smile appears on his face.

    Xiuxianists, Xiuyaoists and Xiumoists each have their own specialties. Xiuxianists various kinds of sword arts are really outstanding. As for Xiumoists, they have many strange yet very powerful holy weapons. Qin Yu has read quite a few Xiuzhen secret books so naturally he has learnt some sword arts.

    The Illusion Spreading Sword Art was a sword art that Qin Yu put emphasis on learning.

    Growl ~~~

    The blood-red aquatic python lets out a deep growl then turns his huge head, staring at Qin Yu. His red eyes are radiating an obvious red light. With a movement, the head turns into a blur and arrives at Qin Yus face instantly.

    In terms of speed, the pythons head is even faster than his body.

    Chi, chi, chi, chi

    Many sword silhouettes hit the blood-red aquatic pythons body but they only leave faint bloodstains on his outer scaly armor and fail to inflict any serious wounds on him. Simply ignoring these attacks, the blood-red aquatic python opens his large mouth, which looks like a basin of blood, and bites at Qin Yu.

    A stench reaches Qin Yu. He immediately moves his hand sign, thrusting the Flaming Sword straight down at the blood-red aquatic python extremely fast from above. Meanwhile, taking advantage of the forces of the water around him, his body makes a gentle movement and avoids the bite of the blood-red aquatic python.


    A red blur flashes across Qin Yu. He vomits blood and is sent flying at once.

    Damn it. This pythons tail is even faster than his head. Spitting out a mouthful of blood, he can feel that all of his internal organs have been injured. Just now he only saw a red blur before the swing of the tail hit him.

    Compared to the pythons head, his tail is 2 to 3 times faster, which is too terrifying. But at this moment, the Flaming Sword, which is heading directly for the pythons head, has already almost reached its target.


    The python raises his head and unexpectedly takes a bite at Qin Yus Flaming Sword in an absolutely fearless manner. A hint of ruthlessness appears in Qin Yus eyes. Through mental control, he makes the Flaming Sword accelerate and thrusts it straight at the pythons wide open mouth.

    If you bite, Ill pierce through your throat!

    He has become ruthless.


    A yellow beam of light shoots out from the pythons mouth and hits the Flaming Sword squarely. Qin Yu then discovers that the sword has unexpectedly got much heavier and its speed has decreased a lot as if it is no longer under his control.

    Only now can he see clearly that some yellow liquid is sticking on the Flaming Sword while emitting various yellow wisps of smoke.


    (*): In the Chinese text, Qin Yu uses 2 knuckle-protruding punches, which in real life have very weak impact force and are almost totally useless, so I changed them to 2 spear hand strikes.

    B5C14: Life for life

    Seeing that there are a poisonous liquid on his flying sword, Qin Yu thinks in his mind. Immediately, flames appear on the surface of the sword. They then burn away the poisonous liquid, causing chi chi sounds. Meanwhile, Qin Yu can feel the Flaming Sword becoming increasingly easier to control.


    When the huge mouth of the python is about to shut to complete the bite, the Flaming Sword goes extremely fast towards Qin Yu, who takes hold of it with a grab. After the sword was stuck on by that yellow liquid just now, he no longer dares to let the python bite at it because heaven knows what other tricks he still has up his sleeve.

    After all, when the opponent dares to bite at the sword, he must already have some method to handle it.

    Ha-ha, a real good flying sword. Im going to eat you first then take your flying sword. Cha Ges voice rises in Qin Yus mind via holy sense communication. At the same time, the pythons massive body begins to move extremely fast, creating a red blur.

    Qin Yu also moves extremely fast using the Stellar Field.

    This fellas speed is too fast, especially his head and tail. He is very worried. When using the Stellar Field, he can avoid the attacks, but this technique consumes too much energy so he cannot rely on it all the time.

    He instantly rushes up to the pythons stomach.

    Forming a claw with a hand, he pierces through the scaly armor on the pythons stomach with a claw strike. The power of the Flaming Gloves is simply undeniable. The python lets out a painful growl. Both the yellow mucus and the ice-cold poison fangs in his mouth can be seen clearly.


    A red blur shoots at Qin Yu. When he just thinks about dodging, he is already hit.

    The heavy swing smashes into his chest. Judging from a series of bone-shattering sounds heard right afterwards, 2 of Qin Yus breastbones should have been broken. Concurrently with this, his internal organs all get a violent shock. Blood then spurts out directly from his mouth.

    If this continues, Ill surely be played with to death by this python. If I use the Meteor Escaping Art, itll take me very long to recover. Id rather risk my life to fight him.

    When he was first chased by the blood-red aquatic python, he immediately made a plan, one that was only going to be used in a desperate situation. And at the moment, Qin Yu has decided to put this plan into action.


    Like a sharp claw, Qin Yus hand penetrates the blood-red aquatic pythons scales. The python utters an agonized loud growl at once and swings his tail at Qin Yu again. However, at almost the same time as when Qin Yu penetrates the scales, he does a flip and gets on the neck of the python directly. The pythons tail sweep therefore hits the wound that was caused by Qin Yu a moment ago.

    Growl ~~

    Discovering that Qin Yu has unexpectedly got on his neck, the python immediately becomes furious. He opens his basin-like blood-red large mouth and takes a bite at Qin Yu. At the same time, he thinks that Qin Yu will definitely dodge this attack.

    After all, if bitten even once, Qin Yus body will definitely be wrecked and he, of course, will die as a result.


    A life for a life!

    Qin Yu suddenly shouts loudly and fills up the Flaming Sword in his hand with his stellar energy. He also explosively releases his entire strong physical power. Clenching his teeth, he ruthlessly thrusts the sword down.

    Lets see if you can also survive decapitation. Qin Yus ice-cold voice rises in Cha Ges mind through holy sense communication.

    The blood-red aquatic python has already opened his basin-like blood-red large mouth. His poison fangs are easy to see. Now he is about to bite into Qin Yu but what Qin Yu has just said startles him.

    Can he still live after getting beheaded?

    That is impossible. The soul is located inside the head so once his head is cut off, he will surely die. Cha Ge has never thought about his death. Just now, even though he went berserk, he did not think that he would die either. After all, he is a vice master of the Blood-red Cave, no less.

    Perishing together with a Xiuxianist? No way!

    But he suddenly feels a series of acute pains, which stupefies him. It turns out Qin Yus Flaming Sword has pierced his neck. It then spins a circle through his neck violently. Seeing his death coming, Cha Ge seems to go mad. He bites into Qin Yu ferociously.

    The pythons head then falls down. Cha Ge looks at Qin Yu with his ice-cold red eyes, which are full of disbelief. Has he really been killed?

    Even though his head has been cut off, his consciousness can still exist for a good few seconds.

    Pu ~~

    Blood spouts from the severed neck. That huge headless body of the blood-red aquatic python is still wriggling and quivering nonstop.

    However, the pythons head has already bitten through Qin Yus body. His stomach has been completely penetrated by the 2 poison fangs. Now there is a shockingly large hole on Qin Yus stomach. Even his spleen has been smashed while his liver has also suffered fatal injuries.

    As Qin Yu sees the disbelief in Cha Ges pair of red eyes, a faint smile appears on the corners of his mouth.

    Feeling his head spinning, he hurriedly takes the head and carcass of the huge blood-red aquatic python into his spatial ring with a wave of his hand. It is essential that he does this to remove all the traces of what has happened. He knows very well that despite the Meteoric Tears continuous maintenance, it will not be long before he can no longer hang on.


    Qin Yu goes straight into a coral reef below him. But his control over the body is getting weaker and weaker.

    Ill leave everything to you, Meteoric Tear.

    Then he loses entire control of his body. A natural suction in his vicinity is pulling his soul. Qin Yus soul floats up, seemingly wanting to fly away from his body. However, at this moment, not disappointing Qin Yus hopes, a familiar heat current envelops his soul.

    Immediately, he is not affected by that suction anymore. Feeling the presence of this heat current, he stops worrying.

    Right afterwards, his body begins to slowly recover in silence

    At present, a girl is moving gracefully through the water at the bottom of the ocean. This girl is dressed in blue clothes and is holding a zither in her bosom. Her beautiful silky black hair is casually tied up with a blue silk ribbon and hangs loose about her waist, which is slender and fastened closely around by a white belt. She also appears to be slightly ample-chested. And there is always a faint, relaxed smile on her face.

    The blue-clad girl is not riding a flying sword. It looks like she is going very slowly but in fact her movements have a fantastic effect which is similar to that of a distance-shrinking technique. In just a while she has already covered several thousand li. Heaven knows how many times she is faster than Qin Yu.


    All of a sudden, the blue-clad girl stops in an elegant manner and casts a look at the coral reef in which Qin Yu is hiding. It seems she can see through the coral because a hint of amazement appears on her face as she is looking. Afterwards, she has a relaxed smiling expression again.

    She then makes a wave of a sleeve, revealing a beautiful snowy arm.

    And at this moment, Qin Yus body in the coral reef also disappears. Following this, the blue-clad girl continues to walk in leisurely steps while hugging her zither. In an instant, she vanishes from this area.

    In a secret room of the Blood-red Cave in the Blood-red Ridge,

    The Blood-red Caves master Cha Hong is sitting with legs crossed on a bulrush mat, continuously shooting many streams of demonic elemental energy at a black jade case that is floating in front of him. This black jade case looks very old and simple. There are 2 lively, vigorous words on its cover -- Nine Swords.

    Cha Hong is the real leader of the 8 million li radius area controlled by the Blood-red Cave. He is much more powerful than his 2 younger brothers.

    Early Dongxu stage!

    This is Cha Hongs real power level. In this underwater world of Xiuyaoists, where Yuanying stage practitioners are regarded as first-class experts, a Dongxu stage Xiuyaoist is certainly classified as a super expert. It should be known that even the 9 Purple Demon aquatic dragons of the Nine Demons Hall, one of the 3 underwater superpowers, are all only at the Dongxu stage.

    100 years ago, when Cha Hong obtained this black jade case, he was extremely excited. From then on, he left all of the Blood-red Caves matters in the hands of his 2 younger brothers. By contrast, he himself has often undergone closed-door training sessions ever since with each of these training sessions lasting for several years.

    This time, he has been undergoing this closed-door training session for 3 years.

    After a sigh, Cha Hong stops sending out his demonic elemental energy and examines the black jade case. He says with a slight nod of his head: It wont be long. Ill be able to succeed within 3 years. Ive been trying hard for 100 years so 3 more years is no big deal.

    In order to open this black jade case, Cha Hong has been draining the energy of its seal for the last 100 years.

    Even a simple Dust Removing Seal is already so formidable. The sealer mustve been terrifyingly powerful in the extreme. Cha Hongs face is full of admiration. No wonder it was an immortal. With this power, a wave of the hand would be enough to destroy me.

    The Dust Removing Seal is one of the lowest seals in the Xiuzhen world and is generally used to prevent dust.

    How powerful can a dust-preventing seal possibly be? If this was a formidable seal, once attacked, it would hit back. But this Dust Removing Seal only protects an object from getting dirtied by dust and cannot counterattack.

    Luckily it cannot hit back, otherwise Cha Hong would be unable to open this jade case given his power level.

    Even though it is the simplest seal, Cha Hong has had to be extremely persistent in dealing with it. During the last 100 years, he has often undergone closed-door training sessions to drain the energy of the seal bit by bit, yet the seal still has not run out of energy after such a long time.

    Penglai Immortal Region, Purple Flame Devilish Dungeon, Azure Dragon Palace, Nine Demons Hall, Blue Water Mansion, perhaps none of you thinks one of the Nine Swords is in my hands. Humph, one day, the underwater world of Xiuyaoists will definitely have 4 superpowers instead of 3!

    Cha Hongs eyes glitter.

    He has an ambition in his heart. However, he has to rely on this black jade case to achieve it.

    But my current power is still not enough. At least I have to reach the late Dongxu stage to be able to bargain with them. Now the most important thing to do is endure silently. I cant let them know that Ive got a jade case. Cha Hong remembers how he was able to come into possession of this black jade case.

    After thinking it through again, he is certain that he has eliminated all of the people who knew about this event and there will be absolutely no problem.

    Cha Hong cannot be blamed for his cautiousness because if the superpowers such as the Azure Dragon Palace and the Nine Demons Hall get wind of this treasure, given Cha Hongs current power, he will simply be unable to prevent them from robbing him of it. It is disaster to obtain a treasure without power to keep it.

    Therefore, Cha Hong must lie low.

    Bang! Bang! Bang!

    Suddenly, knocking sounds rise continuously at the stone door outside the secret room. It seems someone is hitting the door repeatedly.

    Cha Hong is furious. No one is allowed to disturb him during a closed-door training session. Because he often stays in this secret room to drain the seals energy, he is always uneasy. As soon as someone comes near the door, he will become worried.

    Who? Knocking the door during my training session, do you want to die?

    Cha Hongs deep, powerful voice comes out of the room.

    Cave master, weve got a very bad situation. A vice master is already dead.

    With a movement of his body, Cha Hong disappears from the room in an instant, and that black jade case also disappears.

    Outside the room, 3 guardians are standing respectfully at the stone door. There are very anxious looks on their faces at the moment.

    Chi chi ~~~

    The stone door opens. The Blood-red Caves master Cha Hong walks out with a dark, grave expression. He immediately shouts at the 3 guardians: Say, whos dead? Tell me everything in detail.

    The silvery-armored guardian among them goes forwards, saying: Cave master, vice master Cha Ge and vice master Cha Po went out to hunt for a Xiuxianist 3 months ago. Now vice master Cha Ge is already dead.

    Hunt for a Xiuxianist?

    Even though Cha Hong is infuriated by his younger brothers death, he is still very sober. To handle serious matters successfully, he definitely cannot lose his composure at random.

    Cave master, some time ago, guardian Sang Mos son was killed by a Xiuxianist. Later, guardian Sang Mo tried to chase him down, but guardian Sang Mo was really incompetent. He unexpectedly couldnt catch the Xiuxianist and it seems quite a few members of his clan even got killed by the enemy. Sang Mo then offered a reward for catching the Xiuxianist. It is that high-grade holy weapon Thunder Hammer. The silvery-armored guardian gives a detailed account of the matter.

    After listening, Cha Hong has a rough idea of what has happened.

    His 3rd brother always wanted a high-grade holy weapon, but obtaining one is easier said than done. Even though Cha Hong used to have an extra high-grade holy weapon, he later gave it to his 2nd brother Cha Po.

    He did this because he found Cha Po strong. A high-grade holy weapon would greatly enhance Cha Pos power and turn Cha Po into another expert on his side. But if he had given the weapon to his 3rd brother, who was only at the early phase of the Yuanying stage, it would have been wasted.

    Cha Ge always wanted a high-grade holy weapon so it is not hard to imagine why he got into action this time.

    3rd brother is dead? Plus, he even left together with 2nd brother. Could that Xiuxianist be very formidable? Cha Hong asks doubtfully.

    The silvery-armored guardian says: That Xiuxianist is very weak. Hes not even reached the Yuanying stage yet. Sang Mo couldnt catch him only because he is too fast. I simply cant understand how vice master was killed.

    Cha Hong slightly nods.

    If the Xiuxianist was really formidable and could even kill Cha Ge, perhaps Sang Mo would have been dead long ago.

    Didnt 2nd brother go with 3rd brother? In his presence, how could 3rd brother possibly die? Cha Hong says loudly.

    The silvery-armored guardian says with a shake of his head: I dont know, but vice master Cha Po should be all right since his soul jade slip is still intact. As soon as I discovered the death of vice master Cha Ge, I hurriedly came here to inform you of it, so I havent had time to ask vice master Cha Po.

    Cha Hong takes out a transmitter.

    2nd brother, 3rd brother is already dead. What are you doing?

    At the moment, Cha Po, who is chasing Xiao Hei, is also filled with anger. His true forms speed is not slower than Xiao Heis, but Xiao Hei has gone straight through some long narrow holes like a black beam of light. By contrast, because his true form is too large, he has had to crash through them and therefore has been slowed down.

    What? 3rd brother is dead?! Cha Po is startled.

    What are you doing?

    Im chasing a black eagle.

    Get the hell back at full speed for me! Cha Hongs message contains an extreme anger. Knowing that his 3rd brother is dead and seeing his big brother so furious, Cha Po ignores that disgusting black eagle and rushes back to the Blood-red Cave at his fastest speed.

    B5C15: Miss Lier

    After an indeterminate period of time, Qin Yu can gradually feel the existence of his body. He moves his fingers. In just a while, the feeling of having his whole body under his control comes back to him. He cannot help giving a faint smile.

    When he opens his eyes, the first thing he sees is a bamboo roof.

    Not the coral reef!

    His face changes color greatly. He sits up at once, his eyes glittering intensely. After a moment, he looks around and quickly gains a good grasp of everything in his surroundings. This is the interior of a very tranquil bamboo room. There is no one else here.

    Originally Qin Yu was hiding in a coral reef, but upon regaining consciousness, he discovered that he was in a bamboo house, so how could he possibly not have been shocked? He immediately uses his holy sense to check his body over, including his soul and everything inside his dantian.

    After finding that there is nothing wrong with his body, he secretly lets out a sigh of relief.

    When being restored by the Meteoric Tear, he basically does not have the slightest amount of power to resist whoever wants to kill him. Now, it looks like the one who took him here did not inflict any injuries or use any restrictive spells on him.

    Qin Yu looks outside the house. He is astounded to find out that this bamboo house is surrounded by the boundless ocean. Obviously some restrictive spell has been set up outside the house and is screening out all of the water directly, leaving this house totally unaffected by the water. He expands his holy sense.

    This bamboo house has 3 front rooms, 3 back rooms, and a courtyard in the center. There is absolutely no water in the courtyard and the rooms, but outside the house is the limitless ocean. At the moment, there is unexpectedly nobody else in this bamboo house.

    Whos the owner of this place? He gets out of bed to leave the room. The moment he gets down from the bed, his holy sense feels someone approaching in the courtyard. He immediately exits the room in 2 steps.

    Wise and stable!

    The 1st impression Qin Yu has when looking at the man in front of him is that this is a wise, stable person. His calm eyes seem to be able to see through other peoples souls in an instant. And he looks like a 40 year old mortal.

    Young man, youve regained consciousness? This man says smilingly.

    Qin Yu puts his mind on alert. He simply does not know when he was saved and brought to this place. If that happened soon after he had been injured, this man must know how severe his injuries were. His spleen was shattered, his liver was damaged very badly and there was a huge hole on his stomach. Theoretically, these were absolutely fatal injuries.

    So, ordinary people would definitely be amazed to see that he has now become vigorous again.

    I am Liu Xing. Sir, may I ask who you Ah, youre a human! Qin Yu jumps out of his skin because he has just made a sweep with his holy sense and discovered that the man before him unexpectedly does not have a demonic aura. Moreover, he simply cannot get any information about this mans power level.

    To the best of his knowledge, his holy sense can at least find out the power levels of those at the early Yuanying stage or below and therefore this man should have reached the middle Yuanying stage at a minimum.

    You can call me Uncle Lan. Right, Im indeed a human. Well you can think of me as a Xiuxianist. Uncle Lan says with a relaxed smile.

    Qin Yu is greatly shocked inwardly. A Xiuxianist who dares to go down into the ocean will encounter mortal dangers anytime. Therefore, even people of high power levels do not dare to stay long underwater. After all, there are very many experts among underwater Xiuyaoists.

    Uncle Lan, youre a Xiuxianist, then why are you staying underwater? Qin Yu asks doubtfully.

    He does not take notice of the sentence Uncle Lan said just now -- you can think of me as a Xiuxianist. If he was really a Xiuxianist, why would he have said so? It is just that at the moment Qin Yu is worrying that the secret about his Meteoric Tear will be discovered and is also amazed to know that Uncle Lan is human, so naturally he pays no attention to this flaw.

    Im staying at the bottom of the ocean because Lier likes the environment here. Its I who brought her to this place. Uncle Lan explains smilingly. He seems to have a fairly good impression of Qin Yu.

    Lier? Qin Yu is surprised.

    Its Lier who took you here, but she already went out. Come. Get a taste of the tea Ive prepared. Uncle Lan says enthusiastically then leads Qin Yu into the courtyard at the center of the house. They sit opposite each other.

    Uncle Lan pours 2 cups of tea for both of them. Afterwards, he begins to chat with Qin Yu.

    Even though the chat is very relaxing, all the while at the bottom of his heart Qin Yu is worried about whether or not his secret has been discovered. What ordinary Xiuzhenists would not be amazed by and curious about the fact that he was able to survive such mortal injuries?

    Uncle Lan.

    An elegant voice rises. Qin Yu turns his head to take a look.

    He sees a girl with long, silky black hair that hangs loose. Her eyes give people a feeling of serenity, her skin is glowing like jade, her blue clothes are very casual and a white belt is fastened fairly closely around her waist.

    The girl is holding a bamboo basket with some lingzhi mushrooms in it in her left hand.

    Liu Xing, this is Lier. Its she who saved and brought you here. Uncle Lan says with a smile.

    Qin Yu looks at the girl named Lier before him. In the past, because his father was a prince, even the female servants in his family were all beauties. However, the girl in front of him To tell the truth, she has jade-like glowing skin and an air of elegance, but her face can only be considered above average.

    Miss Lier, thank you for saving my life. Qin Yu slightly bows and says.

    His mind, however, is on full alert at this moment as he does not know when this Miss Lier saved and took him here. If most of his injuries had healed by the time she saved him, this will be a good thing because in this case she should know nothing about his fatal injuries.

    Theres no need to thank me, Mister Liu Xing. I brought you here, but even if I hadnt done that, you would still have been able to recover by yourself. Miss Lier looks at Qin Yu with her brilliant, crystalline eyes. There is a rare hint of curiosity in those serene eyes now.

    Qin Yu suddenly frowns.

    He has found out that the Meteoric Tear is nourishing his soul with a heat current that is 2 to 3 times as powerful as the heat current it normally sent out in the past. He does not know the reason of this. To be exact, the heat current sent out by Qin Yus Meteoric Tear has intensified a lot since the appearance of Miss Lier.

    Mister Liu Xing, Uncle Lan, please continue with your conversation. Im going back to my room now. Miss Lier slightly motions then goes towards the 3 rooms at the back of the bamboo house and comes into one of them directly. In this house, the 3 back rooms belong to Miss Lier while Uncle Lan uses the 3 in the front.

    Qin Yu now has occupied one of the rooms.

    Uncle Lan, Miss Lier doesnt seem to be very powerful. How can you let her stroll around the underwater world of Xiuyaoists alone with no worries? After drinking up his cup of tea, Qin Yu asks smilingly. Just now, with a sweep of his holy sense, he discovered that this Miss Lier is unexpectedly only at the early Jindan stage.

    It is very dangerous for anyone with just early Jindan-stage power to enter the underwater world of Xiuyaoists, let alone an early Jindan-stage human Xiuxianist.

    Uncle Lan closes his eyes to enjoy the flavor of the tea then says with a smile: Lier has some special skills. Even though she cant win against Xiuyaoists, to protect herself in the underwater Xiuyao world is no problem to her at all.

    Special skills? Qin Yu secretly remembers this.

    The meeting with Miss Lier moments ago has left him with a faint good impression of her.

    Suddenly --

    A very serene and fresh piece of zither music rises, sometimes sounding like the tinkling of a stream, sometimes reminiscent the water flowing down from a high mountain. Qin Yu cannot help putting his cup down and closing his eyes to feel the music carefully. On one side, Uncle Lan also does the same.

    The music then intensifies, sounding like ocean waves crashing against the shore unceasingly. After a long time, the music changes again. Now it is evocative of an endless forest and the steady rustling of the pines. In the end, the music makes Qin Yu feel as if he has entered a land of ice and snow, and as if the entire world has been covered in white.

    It is only long after the music has stopped that Qin Yu wakes up.

    He opens his eyes with nothing but quietude in his heart. Since rashly going into the underwater Xiuyao world, he has been suffering the hardship of being hunted by Sang Mo and has even had a serious battle against a blood-red aquatic python so he has not been able to rest easy.

    But now, for the first time since his entrance into the underwater Xiuyao world, Qin Yu has calmed down.

    Miss Liers zither skill is definitely at grandmaster level. He praises sincerely. He has listened to the music performed by zitherists who were called masters in his fathers mansion before, but he feels that this Miss Lier is basically 2 levels above them.

    With a hint of confidence on his face, Uncle Lan says: Even in my clan, Liers zither skill is top-class. Youre very lucky to be able to hear her perform.

    Qin Yu has just listened to only a piece of music but his mind seems to have been cleansed. During this period of time, all those killings have made him cruel and antagonistic, but this piece of music alone has purified his mind.

    In one respect, Miss Liers zither skill also represents the level of her mind. I feel that her mind seems to have reached a very high level. Qin Yu says doubtfully.

    Through the sounds of the zither alone she was able to create such a majestic, fresh and serene atmosphere, and even made Qin Yu feel as if he was personally experiencing what the music was conveying. How can someone with a low level of mind possibly have achieved such skill? But why a person with such a profound mind is only at the early Jindan stage?

    Uncle Lan smiles: Lier has no interest in practicing even though shes exceptionally talented. If she wanted to practice, shed surpass me very quickly. But she has no intention of practicing so her power has only reached that level.

    Only now does Qin Yu know for certain that his holy sense does not deceive him. Miss Lier is indeed only at the early Jindan stage.

    Sis Lier.

    Following a loud roar, a monkey rushes in from the outside. Qin Yu can only see a golden light flash before a monkey stands in front of him. With a sweep of his holy sense, he is secretly startled to find out that this monkey has reached the middle Yuanying stage.

    At this moment, he is finally able to confirm one thing -- his holy sense is comparable to that of a middle Yuanying-stage Xiuzhenist. As he is observing the monkey, the monkey also takes a look at him.

    Kaka youre the wounded man that sis Lier brought here, right? Ill introduce myself first. Im Hou Fei. Kaka Im stronger than you! After saying so, the monkey bursts out laughing while scratching his head.

    Uncle Lan says loudly: Hairy monkey, show our guest some courtesy.

    Only when the monkey hears that does he suppress his unruliness, saying: Master, there are no experts in this valley. This man isnt at a high power level but he can give me a fight. The other demonic beasts in the valley no longer dare to fight me.

    Qin Yu is shocked in his heart.

    It turns out this middle Yuanying-stage monkey is actually Uncle Lans disciple. When his disciple has reached the middle Yuanying-stage, then how powerful is he? At least Qin Yu cannot find out Uncle Lans power level, nor can he make a fairly accurate guess at it.

    Youre always brawling all day long. Be quiet for me. Uncle Lan says loudly in a solemn voice. The monkey immediately stops saying and stands on one side.

    Uncle Lan then says smilingly to Qin Yu: Liu Xing, this monkey is very noisy and eccentric like that, but hes a divine beast Fiery-eyed Aquatic Monkey. Perhaps theres no other one like him in the underwater Xiuyao world.

    Now Qin Yu is greatly shocked inwardly.

    This is a divine beast and, moreover, a Fiery-eyed Aquatic Monkey or something. The secret books he has read talked about some divine beasts too, but none of them was a so-called Fiery-eyed Aquatic Monkey. However, he basically does not doubt Uncle Lans words.

    Kaka, Im a one-of-a-kind divine beast, but Master doesnt let me leave the valley. He said my power is too weak, humph, humph. Hou Fei on one side says with pretended annoyance.

    Qin Yus heart, however, skips a beat.

    His power is too weak? Not even a middle Yuanying-stage divine beast is allowed to leave the valley? This Uncle Lan really demands too much of his disciple. After all, divine beasts cannot be judged by their power levels. Generally, they are at least 10 times stronger than other experts of the same power levels as theirs.

    A middle Yuanying-stage divine beast can compare with a normal Dongxu-stage Xiuyaoist.

    Qin Yu and Uncle Lan talk to each other in the courtyard of this bamboo house for a long time. Somehow this Uncle Lan seems very interested in him. Instead of chatting to Hou Fei, an expert and also his own disciple, he chats to Qin Yu for more than a half day.

    Hou Fei is forced to call Qin Yu big brother, just like how he was forced to call Miss Lier big sister in the past.

    Now Qin Yu is in his room. Earlier, he requested Uncle Lan not to let anyone come into his room so that he would be able to practice. Without saying a word, Uncle Lan set up a restrictive spell that surrounded the room completely. However, it did not affect Qin Yus entering and leaving the room at all.

    Im very weak when compared to Hou Fei, not to mention when compared to Uncle Lan. Having become aware of the gap between them, he decides to refine the blood-red aquatic pythons yuanying.

    His holy sense goes into his spatial ring. There is a huge carcass of a blood-red aquatic python in the immense space of the ring. He gives it a thought and a vague mass of a purple light appears in the palm of his hand.

    There is a yuanying in the middle of the purple light. Because its owners soul has disappeared, now this yuanying is like an energy crystal.

    Qin Yu sits down with legs crossed. The yuanying is floating in front of him. His indistinct stellar energy rushes forth and forms a maelstrom-like nebula around his body. At the same time, a stream of his Stellar Flame enfolds the yuanying and begins to gradually melt it and get rid of the impurities. The energy of the yuanying then starts to move according to the rotation of the maelstrom of stellar energy


    Li'er's name is pronounced similarly to Lee-er, and not Liar.

    B5C16: Courting disaster

    After refining the energy by burning up the impurities, Qin Yu absorbs the life essence that is left in the end. The yuanying of an early Xiuyaoist, and moreover, one whose true form was a blood-red aquatic python, has much more energy than the yuanying of a human of the same power level.

    In his dantian,

    The various silvery grains have become very big in size. With each of them moving around in a circle, they constitute a huge maelstrom. In the center of the maelstrom is a blue flame -- the Stellar Flame. As time passes, the silvery grains become larger and larger.


    Suddenly, a silvery grain splits in two. Following this, the other silver grains in Qin Yus body all break in half as well. In just a while, the number of silvery grains inside him has doubled. Now, his dantian his thickly dotted with silvery grains, which form a dense maelstrom together.

    Late Nebula stage!

    The higher the risk, the higher the potential return.

    Qin Yu arrived in the underwater world of Xiuzhenists less than a year ago, but he has finally made another breakthrough in power, reaching the late Nebula stage. At the moment, the energy inside Qin Yu is much purer and stronger than it was previously. His overall power thus has improved a lot.

    However, even though he has reached the late phase of the Nebula stage, he has only consumed more than half of the yuanyings energy. Therefore, he keeps absorbing Time goes by. After spending 9 whole days, Qin Yu has eventually refined all of the yuanying.

    He opens his eyes, which have a hint of joy in them at the moment.

    If I ran into that blood-red aquatic python again now, it shouldnt be so hard to handle him. He is totally confident.

    In the past, the creator of the Stellar Transformations, Lei Wei, was able to single-handedly kill 1 Dacheng stage expert in addition to several loose immortals and several tens Dujie stage and Kongming stage experts when he was only at the middle phase of the Dujie stage and had yet to undergo his tribulation.

    Basically, users of this technique can even kill people who are a few levels above them in power.

    The Stellar Transformations is different from the other Xiuzhen techniques, in which it is not impossible to overcome the gap between 2 successive stages despite it being relatively great. Each stage of the Stellar Transformations is essentially different from the previous.

    At the Nebula stage, the users stellar energy is still in its most common form.

    To reach the Meteor stage, he will have to refine all of his silvery grains and merge them into a single golden particle of essence. Because this golden particle of essence, which is called a Meteor, is formed by refining all of the silvery grains, its energy is on a completely different level from Qin Yus current stellar energy.

    Now Im already at the late Nebula stage, dealing with ordinary early Yuanying opponents is no longer a problem. Its still hard to handle top demonic beasts like that blood-red aquatic python but I can manage it. When I reach the early Meteor stage, perhaps I can even handle early Dongxu opponents directly.

    Qin Yu knows his practice technique very well. Once reaching the Meteor stage, he can definitely be considered a humanoid divine beast among Xiuzhenists with equivalent power levels!

    Too bad, to reach the early Meteor stage from the late Nebula stage, even if he absorbs demonic beasts yuanyings, he will need at least 8 or 9 pieces, and if he only practices by himself, it will take him about several hundred years to succeed.

    Oh, this blood-red aquatic pythons storage bracelet is pretty good.

    A storage bracelet appears in Qin Yus hand. It is none other than Cha Ges bracelet. As Cha Ge died, this bracelet also became ownerless. Qin Yus holy sense immediately enters the bracelet and begins to examine everything.

    Tut-tut, this blood-red aquatic python is really wealthy.

    This bracelets space is fairly large, being about 20 m in both length and width. There are a large pile of nothing but normal gold, a 0.5 m high small pile of purple gold beside it, and some other minerals in the bracelet at the moment.

    Normal gold is mundane but purple gold can be forged into flying swords. Generally, no more than 2 to 3 jin purple gold can be obtained from refining 1000 jin normal gold. A flying sword that is forged from purple gold alone is only a low-grade holy weapon.

    But purple gold works best as a supplement. Melting it then carving written talismans or seals into a flying sword with the molten purple gold will produce excellent results. One should know that molten purple gold is a top-grade material for making written talismans and seals.

    As for the other minerals in the bracelet, except for a few good enough to be made into middle-grade holy weapons, they can only be used to forge low-grade ones.

    Oh, authority card?

    Qin Yu discovers an authority card in a corner of the storage bracelet. He gives it a thought and it immediately appears in his palm. This authority card is black and has 2 words Blood-red written on it. Qin Yus complexion immediately changes as he sees the words.

    A Blood-red Black Card, only the 3 cave leaders have this kind of card. His face goes pale in the blink of an eye.

    The Blood-red Cave controls an area of 8 million li in radius. It has a cave master and 2 vice masters. These 3 leaders each have a Blood-red Black Card while the 13 guardians authority cards are Blood-red Crimson Cards.

    In this area, only the 3 cave leaders are given a Blood-red Black Card each, then who was the python that he killed?

    Could it be that blood-red aquatic python was a legendary cave leader? Qin Yu is discomposed. While chasing him, Cha Ge transformed in to a huge blood-red aquatic python, but it should be known that pythons are a relatively big clan in the ocean.

    Therefore, he did not connect the blood-red aquatic python with a cave leader.

    Right, that fella said he could order Sang Mo. As Qin Yu recalls that sentence Cha Ge said, he is even more certain about his conjecture. It is highly possible that he has killed a vice master of the Blood-red Cave.

    It has never crossed his mind that the blood-red aquatic python might have been the cave master. According to his memories, the cave master can be considered invincible in this area, so how could he possibly have killed someone like that?

    This is a transmitter? Qin Yu finds a transmitter in the bracelet. Thanks to having used the Soul Examination previously, he has also got a rough idea of transmitters and other matters related to the Blood-red Cave. When he scans the transmitter with his holy sense, his face changes color in an instant.

    Vice master, you shouldve killed that Xiuxianist, right? Congratulations! My Thunder Hammer is waiting for you to take it.

    Whats the matter, vice master? You havent killed that Xiuxianist yet?

    Xiuxianist, is that transmitter in your hands? Im surprised that you was able to kill vice master. Oh my, youve really got some power. Ha-ha but now, even without me offering a reward, you should just prepare to suffer cave masters furious anger. By killing vice master, you basically signed your own death warrant.

    3 holy-sense-based messages have just been sent to the transmitter in his hand.

    As soon as Qin Yu takes a look, his heart trembles. Just as he expected, the blood-red aquatic python he killed was none other than a vice master of the Blood-red Cave.

    He has courted danger!

    A grave danger!

    Within 8 million li of this place, the Blood-red Cave is like a dictator. Even worse, according to the information he got from using the Soul Examination, the cave master, the most fearsome figure in the Blood-red Cave, is undoubtedly someone of peerless power in this area.

    Qin Yu is rather confused for the moment. How can the Blood-red Caves master possibly let the matter rest when he has already killed a vice master?

    Now theres only one solution. His eyes flash with a hint of fierceness. If he wants to go through the underwater Xiuyao world safely, he must grasp how to use the Xiumo secret skill Northern Darkness. Only by suppressing his aura completely can he make it impossible for Xiuyaoists to figure out that he is human.

    He will suppress his aura first then change his appearance, and even the air about him!

    Changing the air about him is the most important. Once it is changed, even Sang Mo will not necessarily be able to tell that he is the Xiuxianist. If Qin Yu wants to change the air about him, he will have to do 2 things -- change his mannerisms and learn the Northern Darkness.

    Once he has learnt the Northern Darkness, his body will suck his aura in like a black hole, looking very oppressive. Obviously when the air about him, his appearance and his clothes have been altered, Sang Mo will basically be unable to recognize him.

    Learning the Xiumo secret skill Northern Darkness is the most important thing to do. Qin Yu makes up his mind. He must practice until mastering the Northern Darkness, not only to avoid this manhunt for him, but also to prepare for the future.

    However, after 3 days of practicing, he has to admit that successfully learning the Northern Darkness is not something that can be done in a short period of time at all.

    Kaka, a bunch of idiots, youre too weak, too weak! An arrogant, wild voice rises outside. Hearing it, Qin Yu cannot help but give a smile. It is obvious that the voices owner is the Fiery-eyed Aquatic Monkey Hou Fei. He immediately leaves his room and goes outside the bamboo house.

    He has been at this place for quite some time, but he has yet to observe it carefully.

    The bamboo house is located in a ravine inside a valley deep in the ocean. This ravine itself is camouflaged by natural barriers and, moreover, Uncle Lan has set up restrictive spells at its opening so it is practically impossible for outsiders to enter.

    The scenery inside the valley is very beautiful with all kinds of multicolored fish, lustrous green crystal trees, purple lingzhi mushrooms, some luminous silvery-shelled shrimps and huge black turtles that are 7 to 8 m long.

    One thing is for sure, this ravine is very beautiful. At the moment, Hou Fei is brandishing a black stick fighting against 3 Xiuyaoists in a place of the ravine.


    A man who is holding 2 daggers and wearing a suit of armor is sent flying by Hou Fei with a blow of the stick.

    Hou Feis stick then instantly turns into 3 blurs. A thin man who is wielding 2 sharp, long spears in his hands can only block 2 blurs in time with his spears. The remaining blur of the stick smashes straight down on this man, sending him flying.

    Kaka, go!

    Right after the stick has been brought down, Hou Fei gently stretches his leg and a fat man with a turtle shell on his back is kicked away at once.

    Fighting one-on-three, Hou Fei has won with ease.

    Kaka youre really useless. Use some power, will you? Lets fight again. Lets fight again. Hou Fei says to the 3 Xiuyaoists while waving his black stick, his fiery eyes glittering with a warlike look.

    Boss, youre awesome. We give up. We give up, says the armor-clad man with 2 daggers hurriedly. On one side, the thin man with 2 long spears, who has just dragged himself up, also says hurriedly: Boss, youre invincible. Please dont fight us.

    As for the big fat man with a turtle shell on his back, he is blinking his pitiful tiny eyes.

    Suddenly, that fat mans tiny eyes move. Seeing Qin Yu approaching, he hurriedly says: Boss, someones coming. Judging from his imposing manner and the mighty air about him, I think hes definitely an expert. Perhaps only you can fight him.

    With a wave of his black stick, Hou Fei turns around.

    Big brother. His eyes brighten and are filled with fighting spirit. Big brother, come have a bout with me. After saying so, without waiting to see whether or not Qin Yu agrees, he brandishes the black stick and rushes at him extremely fast.

    Qin Yu has not fought since arriving here so he is also itching for a fight.

    Seeing the black stick being thrust at him, his eyes brighten. In an instant, the Flaming Gloves appear on his hands. He catches the black stick with a single-handed grab. Feeling that the stick is carrying a terrifying force, he immediately lets go of it, moves his arm around it like a snake, forms a finger sword with the hand and delivers a thrust to Hou Feis palm.


    A loud metallic noise is heard. Qin Yu only feels as if his finger sword has hit diamond. He cannot help getting astonished. He is wearing the Flaming Gloves, no less, but his attack unexpectedly could not even injure Hou Feis hand. Hou Feis defense is really a bit too frightening already.

    Kaka, this is awesome. If only you could be a bit stronger.

    Very excited, Hou Fei slightly shakes his hand. In an instant, the black stick turns into a blur and smashes towards Qin Yu. When he is about to dodge it, Hou Fei slightly tightens his fingers around the black stick. And while coming down, the stick unexpectedly begins to vibrate hurriedly and move in a very strange path too. Concurrently with this, a faint complacent smile appears on the corners of Hou Feis mouth.


    When Qin Yu sees such a brilliant strike, his heart becomes excited. He moves his arms so fast that their blurs look like a blossoming lotus. His fingers gently touch the stick in quick succession. After the stick is touched several times, its path of travel is affected. Qin Yu suddenly grabs the black stick with both hands.

    Let go!

    He gives a violent pull and throws a kick at Hou Feis right hand, which is holding the black stick, using his right leg simultaneously.


    Qin Yus foot lands heavily on Hou Feis right hand, but he seems to feel nothing. He grins at Qin Yu, exposing his white teeth. Then he slightly moves his right arm, sending a powerful hidden force through the stick to Qin Yus hands.

    Qin Yus entire body backs away. That hidden force unexpectedly has numbed his hands. One should know that he is wearing the Flaming Gloves.

    Looking at Hou Fei, Qin Yu cannot help but admit inwardly that he is too powerful.

    Hou Fei is a middle Yuanying stage divine beast, no less! He is about as powerful as the divine beasts Dragon Rocky lion and Hong Luan that Qin Yu encountered before and is comparable to ordinary Dongxu stage Xiuzhenists. The gap between the 2 of them is indeed so great that Qin Yu could not even breach his defense.

    Ah, sis Lier, Xiaoyuer was bitten by a shark outside the ravine. Quickly save it. Following the urgent shouts, a golden beam of light flashes right pass Qin Yu and Hou Fei to come into the bamboo house.

    Qin Yu and the others also run into the house.

    Only when the golden light stops can he see clearly that it is a pretty little girl with a golden fish scale on the midpoint between her eyebrows. At the moment she is holding a purple fish, whose stomach has been bitten through. Obviously this fish is on the verge of death.

    A blue silhouette immediately appears in the courtyard of the house. It is none other than Miss Lier.

    Xiao Jin, its not serious so dont worry. Yan Zi, why did you go outside the ravine? Who let you fight that soon-to-reach-the-Jindan-stage shark? Miss Lier says smilingly then reaches out her right hand and touches the fishs wound. In an instant, a green light appears all around her body.

    Being enfolded in the green light, Miss Lier looks so elegant and pure.

    As Qin Yu watches her curing the fish, he suddenly feels that she is most charming when she cures someone else. A tinge of affection for her even appears at the bottom of his heart. He cannot help shaking his head with an unconcerned smile.

    B5C17: Reunion

    Being enveloped in the green light, the wound on that purple fishs body recovers noticeably fast. In just a while, it has become perfectly healthy again. The amazing thing is it seems to never have been injured.

    Sis Lier is so awesome, says the little girl with a golden fish scale between her eyebrows in excitement.

    Having regained its vitality, the purple fish also swims around Miss Lier in an exalted manner. She looks at it tenderly and criticizes: Yan Zi, now you should know how formidable that shark is, right? Later dont show off again.

    The purple fish moves its small eyes around while flapping its tail nonstop like a clingy child.

    Miss Lier gives a smile. Afterwards, she turns to Qin Yu, slightly stupefied, but then she immediately says smilingly: Mister Liu Xing, why are you staring at me? Could there be some mark on my face? There is a hint of humor in her tone.

    Ah. Qin Yu is startled. He then sorts himself out a bit and says: Miss Lier, its just that when I saw you giving treatment a moment ago, I was really amazed. That green energy seems to have very unusual properties. Its unexpectedly so effective in healing wounds.

    He secretly lets out a sigh of relief and cannot help admiring himself for being able to think up an answer in an instant.

    Miss Lier says with a relaxed smile: This green energy is actually a special skill of my clan. Outsiders cannot learn it. Its indeed exceptionally effective in treating bodily injuries. As long as the patient is still alive, it can always heal them back to health.

    Oh, its really marvelous. Qin Yu hurriedly says.

    With a smile, Miss Lier then turns around and goes back to her own room. Qin Yu smiles derisively to himself. Just now he was unexpectedly captivated by her manner when giving treatment and almost made a fool of himself, but luckily he was able to react quickly.

    Hey, big brother Qin Yu, have another bout with me, okay? Hou Fei says laughingly while brandishing his black stick.

    At the moment Qin Yu is in no mood to fight Hou Fei. Moreover, if he sparred with this middle Yuanying stage divine beast, would he not be seeking a beating for himself? Even though he likes fighting, he does not want to get beaten up.

    Time flies. In the blink of an eye, Qin Yu has been staying in the ravine for a half month. During this half month, he has occasionally sparred with Hou Fei when he became thirsty for a fight, but he has spent most of his time practicing the Stellar Transformations and the Xiumo secret technique Northern Darkness.

    There is also an activity he has enjoyed in his leisure time -- listening to the zither.

    He cannot help admitting that one must be extremely fortunate to be able to hear Miss Li'ers music even once. He has been able to listen to her music for so long simply because Uncle Lan and Miss Li'er have been too nice to him. According to Hou Fei, not even Hou Fei is allowed to live in this bamboo house.

    Hou Fei does not understand why an outsider like him can stay in the house either.

    Qin Yu himself feels that Uncle Lan has treated him pretty well and Miss Lier has been very nice to him. Of course, the latter is very nice to all demonic beasts in the ravine too so her niceness towards him does not necessarily mean anything. But Uncle Lan is different as he treats the demonic beasts in a very strict and serious manner.

    Not even a middle Yuanying divine beast can live inside, but they allow me to. Could it be because Im also human? After pondering over this matter, he can only come up with this answer.

    In fact, there is another answer at the bottom of his heart, but he does not think that Uncle Lan and Miss Li'ers intention is so terrible.

    This answer is they want to steal his Meteoric Tear.

    Qin Yu still does not know when he was saved and brought to this place and how much his injuries had healed when that Miss Li'er saw him. If Miss Li'er knows that he suffered fatal injuries, she can definitely figure out that he possesses some treasure based on the fact that he has now fully recovered.

    Even though other people cannot detect the Meteoric Tear because it already fused with his body, they can still guess that there is some treasure in his possession.

    Hopefully Miss Li'er and Uncle Lan are so nice to me not because of the Meteoric Tear. At the bottom of his heart, Qin Yu is still ice-cold and resolute. There is abundant resolution in the blood of every man of the Qin clan. And Qin Yu, who has lived alone since he was a kid and could almost never experience his mothers love, has become even more tough-minded, and also even manlier!

    At the bottom of his heart, he has always been on guard against these 2 mysterious Xiuxianists.

    He takes a deep breath then slowly exhales. After concealing that thought at the depths of his heart, he immediately calms himself down and starts to practice the Xiumo secret technique Northern Darkness again. This technique is his top priority for the moment.

    Even if he can flee to a Xiuxian island, if that Blood-red Caves master Cha Hong chases to this island, he will still not be able to escape death.

    There are a few reasons why that will be the case. Firstly, underwater Xiuyaoists are far superior to Xiuxianists and Xiumoists in terms of overall power, so, what ordinary Xiuxian schools will dare to oppose someone who controls an 8 million li radius area like Cha Hong?

    Secondly, even if he can come into a Xiuxian island, the islanders will not necessarily accept him. Moreover, facing Cha Hong, how will those Xiuxianists dare to offend Cha Hong to save him?

    The conclusion from these 2 points is that he must learn the Northern Darkness. There is no other way since he has infuriated Cha Hong by killing Cha Ge.

    The space inside Qin Yus head is like a boundless misty area. His spiritual energy, nonphysical, is floating in it. Qin Yu can feel his spiritual energy. The outermost 10% of it is under his control and therefore is totally stable.

    However, the rest of his spiritual energy is a total mess. It either forms maelstroms, or flows extremely fast, or crashes into itself. His soul, which is in the shape of a disc, is in the center of the area. Various electric sparks are zigzagging and flashing around the soul.

    An extremely weak thread of stellar energy flows into his head.

    Qin Yu did not dare to channel too much stellar energy into his head because, after all, the more energy, the harder to control. Therefore, he tried his best to use as little stellar energy as possible, drawing out only a single thread of it. However, even though this is only a thread of stellar energy, he still cannot combine it with spiritual energy.

    Experimenting again and again.

    6 hours has passed very quickly. Qin Yu does not even know how many times he has been experimenting over the last 6 hours. He has failed continuously, as if he has been threading a needle. After 6 straight hours of repeated failures, even someone good-tempered like Qin Yu is annoyed.

    Actually, this is also a method to train his mind.

    Ive failed again. Its been a half month, when will I be able to succeed in learning this Northern Darkness? Could it be unless I can succeed, Ill have to shrink back like a turtle all the time? There is a hint of anger in his eyes at the moment.

    Why did he leave the Qian Long continent? Can the reason possibly be anything other than to walk the endless path of practice? He wants to roam the Xiuzhen world openly in an impressive manner, and not to go into hiding to avoid the enemies.

    Ting --

    Zither strings vibrate. Zither music rises.

    Miss Li'er has begun to play her zither again. Hearing these sounds, Qin Yu brushes aside his anger at being unable to learn the Northern Darkness and closes his eyes to calmly enjoy the soul-moving music. When it has stopped, he is still immersing himself in the afterglow of listening to it.

    Liu Xing. Uncle Lan strides up to Qin Yu. Seeing Qin Yu acting in this way, he immediately laughs out loud: Oh my, Liers music has bewitched you like this. You really are

    Uncle Lan, only Miss Li'ers music can enthrall me like that. I wont be entranced by ordinary zither masters. Qin Yu says smilingly.

    Uncle Lans eyes brighten: Oh other zitherists cant bewitch you? I see, so youre only fascinated by Miss Li'ers music. Tell me sincerely, son, are you interested in Lier? He says jokingly.

    Thats ridiculous. Qin Yu however does not tense up.

    Uncle Lan smiles: Im just kidding. Dont take it seriously, son.

    Qin Yu pouts with a smile but does not answer. Uncle Lans expression suddenly becomes solemn: Liu Xing, you and I have chatted a lot during this period of time so you should know what kind of person I am, right? It is rare to see him get serious like this.

    Seeing Uncle Lan like this, Qin Yu also becomes serious, saying with a nod: Uncle Lan, if you have any matter, please tell me everything about it.

    Uncle Lan says warningly: Im warning you, Liu Xing. You absolutely mustnt hope for a relationship with Lier. Youd best not like her. Otherwise not only will you suffer for the rest of your life, you will also possibly die anytime.

    Qin Yu is startled.

    He then bursts out laughing: What were you saying, Uncle Lan? You must be joking.

    But there is not a trace of a smile on Uncle Lans face: Im not joking. To be honest, you have a very bright future ahead of you. No one in the entire Xiuyao world will be able to keep up with you, but let me tell you one thing, if you like Lier, youll be hopeless no matter how capable you are. In fact, I dont have to warn you about this, but I really dont want to see you get destroyed.

    Qin Yu is baffled.

    All right, Im being meddlesome, but you best remember what Ive said today. Its also my advice for you. Uncle Lan says while staring at Qin Yu.

    Qin Yu feels his heart tremble for a while.

    What Uncle Lan said just now is really shocking. At first he said that Qin Yu was very promising and that nobody in this entire Xiuyao world would be able to keep up with Qin Yu. Who does Uncle Lan think he himself is? Can he really judge people so accurately?

    I already remember, Uncle Lan. Qin Yu says smilingly.

    However, both Uncle Lan and Qin Yu cannot make sure that nothing will happen because it is basically impossible to control affection. Once it surges up in the heat of a certain moment, it will become unstoppable.

    All right, you should put a lot of effort into practicing. Uncle Lan pats his shoulder then leaves.

    As he is going away, Qin Yu watches his back thoughtfully.

    What is the actual reason why this Uncle Lan said those words? It seems if he likes Miss Li'er, he will likely be destroyed. Is there such a sure thing? Judging from Uncle Lans and Miss Li'ers behaviors, it is obvious that they belong to a certain special clan.

    Ha-ha, perhaps Uncle Lan and Miss Li'er are from a very formidable clan. But if I like someone, even immortals wont be able to stop me, let alone their clan or something. Also, I havent liked anyone yet.

    Qin Yu gives an unconcerned smile. He has never been a fearful, submissive person.

    No one has ever been able to intimidate him with force. Even though he is going to have to deal with opponents stronger than him like the Blood-red Caves master Cha Hong, he is only staying here to practice in the dark. When he can conceal his identity, he will reappear without delay. Qin Yu is fearless, but he is not an idiot who is unafraid of throwing his life away.

    My arm is broken. It was broken by Boss Hou. The man who uses 2 daggers and a suit of armor says with an agonized look on his face. His arm is bending at a strange angle. Obviously a normal arm cannot bend like that.

    Hou Fei gives him a glare with his fiery eyes, growling: Heh heh ~~~ youve even dared to complain to sis Lier. Do you want me to smash your shrimp shell to pieces?!

    Fei Fei, dont be noisy.

    Miss Li'er, who has changed into white clothes, shouts at Hou Fei. The latter immediately lowers his head and stops saying, looking as if he has admitted his mistakes. Miss Li'er laughs playfully then turns to the man with the broken arm. She reaches out a hand, touching the broken place.

    When Qin Yu walks into the courtyard, his eyes cannot help brightening.

    Miss Li'er is being engulfed in a green light. Her face looks so pure. Her skin is glowing like jade and radiating various green rays of light. As Qin Yu watches her healing that arm, he is rather touched from the bottom of his heart.

    Qin Yu has never experienced maternal love so he has been very tough-minded since he was little. Only his fathers love has been able to enter the depths of his heart. However, at the moment, Miss Li'ers motherly radiance has also slightly touched his heart.

    He sobers up in the blink of an eye.

    Im warning you, Liu Xing. You absolutely mustnt hope for a relationship with Lier. Youd best not like her. Otherwise The warning Uncle Lan gave him not long ago rises in his mind again. He immediately gets out of that state of feeling touched.

    All right, later you shouldnt fight Fei Fei again. If you fight him, youll only hurt yourself. Miss Li'er advises.

    That mans injury has now recovered completely. He says with frustration: Fight him? Do you think I wanted to fight him? Its just that Boss Hou Ah, to me, its an honor to be able to spar with Boss Hou. Im very happy and excited. Seeing the look in Hou Feis eyes, he shifts his ground instantly.

    Miss Li'er gives a smile. When turning around, she sees Qin Yu on one side.

    How are you, Mister Liu Xing?

    Qin Yu also says very politely: How are you, Miss Li'er? I never thought that I would be able to see your special healing technique again. Its really wondrous. Suddenly, a hint of happiness appears on his face as he can feel clearly that Xiao Hei is rushing in his direction extremely fast.

    Mister Liu Xing, you seem to be delighted with something? Miss Li'er asks curiously.

    Qin Yu says in excitement with a nod: My brother Xiao Hei is hurrying to this place. Perhaps he can arrive in just a few days.

    Oh, congratulations, Mister Liu Xing. When your brother has arrived, please let me know about that. There are restrictive spells outside this ravine so its very difficult for outsiders to enter when they arent guided by someone inside. Miss Li'er says with a smile.

    Then Ill have to bother you, Miss Li'er. Qin Yu says with a nod while smiling.

    Miss Li'er smiles: Mister Liu Xing, since youre busy, Im returning to my room first. After saying, she gracefully turns around and goes back to her room at once.

    Qin Yu watches her enter the room from behind, gives a smile then turns around and goes back to his room to continue practicing. He practices the Stellar Transformations and the Xiumo secret skill Northern Darkness every day and has never slacked off.

    After several days,

    Qin Yu feels clearly that Xiao Hei has come very close to him, even within 100 li of him. However, Xiao Hei suddenly stops. Qin Yu knows that Xiao Hei is being blocked by the restrictive spells outside the ravine. He immediately stands up and gets ready to ask Miss Li'er help him.

    B5C18: Departure

    When Qin Yu leaves his room, he is surprised to see that Miss Li'er has already gone into the middle of the courtyard from her room. As soon as she sees him, she says with a smile: Mister Liu Xing, I already know that your brother has arrived. Lets go now.

    Qin Yu smilingly goes next to Miss Li'er. Side by side, the 2 of them hurry straight to the entrance of the ravine.

    Liers long hair is flowing. Qin Yu can even smell the alluring scent of her beautiful hair. A faint smile appears on the corners of his mouth.

    As he comes near the entrance, his heart is filled with excitement because he is about to meet Xiao Hei again.

    Qin Yu and Miss Li'er thus go out of the entrance directly with ease. He does not see any restrictive spells. However, if he turns around to take a look, he will be amazed to see that the mouth of the cave has become a wall of rock like the other places. This is just an illusionary technique.

    But it is so extraordinarily profound that not even Xiao Hei can see through it.

    Seeing Xiao Hei, who is not far from him and is unable to find the way, Qin Yus eyes immediately brighten. Since separating due to being chased by Sang Mo last time, it has been impossible for him to reunite with Xiao Hei. Some time ago, he and Xiao Hei were about to meet each other again, but then they encountered Cha Ge and Cha Po before they were able to.

    Xiao Hei!

    Qin Yu calls in a slightly quivering voice.

    Xiao Hei suddenly turns around. Seeing Qin Yu, he immediately lets out a resounding eagle cry in excitement. The cry even frightens off the shoals of fish in his surroundings. Big brother. Xiao Heis excited voice rises in Qin Yus mind.

    Qin Yu rushes very fast to Xiao Heis side and hugs him. Xiao Hei also wraps his wings around Qin Yu.

    Standing on one side, Miss Li'er gives a faint smile too.

    Youve changed, Xiao Hei. Compared to the past, youve got thinner by half. Even your aura has changed. Whats happened to you? Only now does Qin Yu notice Xiao Heis astonishing changes. If not for the telepathy between them, he would not have been able to be so sure.

    Xiao Hei has become much thinner, his aura has become very oppressive and fierce, and his eyes have become even sharper and colder than before.

    Big brother, after reaching the late Jindan stage, I prepared to go kill Sang Mo. Even though itd be dangerous, Id used a forbidden technique to transform my body so in theory itd be easy for me to handle a an early Yuanying expert. Who couldve thought that when I was about to meet you again that day, I ran into a big python. It was much stronger than Sang Mo. I estimate that it mustve reached the middle Yuanying stage at least. Xiao Hei is very angry.

    Forbidden technique? Qin Yu is startled.

    Xiao Hei says via his holy sense: Its a secret technique in my memories. After I started using it, my entire body went through drastic and thorough transformations. Even though my power level is still the same, my offense has improved a lot.

    Because Xiao Hei has reached the late Jindan stage, even if he had not used that forbidden technique, he would still be able to deal with early Yuanying stage experts. And now that he has used that technique, he can even hold his own against most middle Yuanying stage experts.

    However, that day he encountered Cha Po, who is not only at the middle Yuanying stage, but also a blood-red aquatic python. Blood-red aquatic pythons are a top-class species of demonic beast and second only to divine beasts. A middle Yuanying stage blood-red aquatic python is much more formidable than a Xiuxianist of the same power level.

    Even so, Xiao Hei was only put at a slight disadvantage at that time. When he eventually fled, Cha Po chased him for a long time without being able to catch up with him. Afterwards, due to an order by his big brother, Cha Po had no choice but to return to the Blood-red Cave.

    Then why havent you come to my place until now? Qin Yu asks doubtfully.

    Given Xiao Heis speed, he should have been able to find this location very quickly.

    Xiao Hei says through holy sense communication: Big brother, after escaping from that blood-red aquatic python, I wanted to go kill Sang Mo, but then I learned that the Blood-red Cave had launched a full-scale hunt for you in its entire territory. That Sang Mo and 2 other early Yuanying demonic beasts went to the Blood-red Cave together. Because there were 3 of them, I didnt dare to attack them.

    When Cha Ge was fighting Qin Yu, he arrogantly told Sang Mo to get the Thunder Hammer ready so, following his death, Sang Mo was able to guess that Qin Yu had killed him and immediately reported this to Cha Hong.

    A furious Cha Hong then ordered Sang Mo to hurry to the Blood-red Cave. Sang Mo was not alone in this. Even the other guardians who were outside at that time had to rush to the Blood-red Cave as well. Therefore he went to the Blood-red Cave together with 2 other guardians.

    Xiao Hei ran a long distance in vain and had no choice but to go back to find Qin Yu. The distance he covered during this round trip amounts to over 1 million li.

    Big brother, you cant go out for the moment. They are all hunting for you outside, warns Xiao Hei.

    Qin Yu slightly nods. Right after knowing that he had killed a vice master of the Blood-red Cave, he already predicted this. One should know that Sang Mos reward offer and the Blood-red Caves hunt are 2 totally different things. Sang Mos reward can only tempt Xiuyaoists into looking for him.

    But the Blood-red Cave has forcefully ordered all Xiuyaoists within 8 million li of it to hunt for him. None of them dares to disobey this order because the Blood-red Cave is the ruler of this 8 million li radius area!

    After going back into the ravine, Xiao Hei and Qin Yu stay in the same room. But Hou Fei is the one most excited by the arrival of Xiao Hei because they often spar with each other. Moreover, when Xiao Hei uses his various astonishing techniques, Hou Fei can only defeat him by putting in some effort.

    A month passes in peace.

    Today, Qin Yu and Xiao Hei are talking to each other in the courtyard.

    Big brother, this ravine is too easy and comfortable. Ill go out to wander for a while first. Xiao Hei considers for a long time then finally mentions his plan.

    Qin Yu is startled, but he understands at once.

    Xiao Hei is an eagle, and like every other eagle, he wants to soar into the sky. Even though he has been staying in this ravine for a month due to his relationship with Qin Yu, in his heart, he still looks forward to the bloodshed, fighting and so on outside the ravine the most.

    Thats fine, Xiao Hei. Qin Yu says smilingly.

    Xiao Hei blinks his eyes. He really rather hates to part with Qin Yu.

    Big brother why dont you go with me to have some fun? He tries to persuade Qin Yu. Given your power, youll be able to hold your own against even middle Yuanying demonic beasts. Its said that there are only very few demonic beasts that have surpassed the middle Yuanying stage in the whole territory of the Blood-red Cave. With just a little carefulness, we wont run into them.

    When Qin Yu hears Xiao Heis suggestion, his interest is naturally aroused.

    After all, he likes to feel his blood boiling and intense emotions. The Blood-red Cave does not have many experts so if he and Xiao Hei are a bit careful, nothing bad will happen to them either. As for ordinary Xiuyaoists who pursue him, their jindans and yuanyings will only end up as his nutrition.

    No, theres no hurry. We better wait until Ive mastered the Northern Darkness. Dont worry, Ill be able to learn it quickly. Qin Yu however does not agree.

    Does he keep staying here really to practice the Northern Darkness?

    Xiao Hei leaves afterwards, but things still go on as usual in the ravine. Qin Yu practices the Stellar Transformations and the Xiumo secret skill Northern Darkness every day. He keeps failing over and over, but he is not anxious either. Subconsciously, he hopes that he will not succeed in learning the Northern Darkness so that he can keep staying in this ravine with no worries.

    Every day, he practices and listens to Miss Li'ers zither music.

    Occasionally, he can even see her treat some demonic beasts injuries. Qin Yu once even wanted to spar with Hou Fei so that after getting injured he would be able to experience her treatment as well.

    Of course, he buried that thought at the depths of his mind as soon as it appeared.

    3 years has passed in the blink of an eye.

    To practitioners, 3 years is really a very short time. During this period, Xiao Hei returned once and stayed in the ravine for a month before leaving again. And not long ago, that little fish Yan Zi has also transformed into a human.

    Today, Qin Yu is sitting with legs crossed on his bed, practicing the Northern Darkness again.

    Thanks to the Meteoric Tears nourishment over the last 3 years, his soul has become much more powerful than before. Even his spiritual energys toughness and flexibility have also become strong. The amount of spiritual energy he can control has now reached an eighth of the total. But there have still been no signs of success when it comes to learning the Northern Darkness.

    Suddenly --

    Qin Yus entire body shakes once. A hint of ecstasy appears on his face.

    At the moment, in his mind, a thread of stellar energy has unexpectedly begun to intertwine with a thread of spiritual energy. They are intertwining as if both of them are real substances. It should be known that Qin Yus biggest problem has always been that his spiritual energy and stellar energy cannot really come into contact with each other.

    He chokes back his excitement and continues to wait.

    As the minutes and seconds go by, those intertwined threads of stellar energy and spiritual energy start to fuse with each other. After an indeterminate period of time, they finally succeed in merging and there are no longer any distinctions between them.

    Qin Yu suddenly opens his eyes, shooting out 2 brilliant beams of light.

    He has succeeded!

    Including the period of time during which he was chased, he has practiced the Northern Darkness for more than 3 years and now he has finally succeeded. The 1st thread of energy that combines stellar energy with spiritual energy has been formed. He has been experimenting every day for 3 years, no less. And experimenting with the Northern Darkness has even become a habit of his.

    This energy combines stellar energy and spiritual energy so lets call it spirilar energy. Even Qin Yus breathing becomes somewhat heavy.

    This spirilar energy is different from stellar energy and spiritual energy, but there is very little of it at the moment -- just a single thread. However, this thread is crucial to learning the Northern Darkness.

    Qin Yu closes his eyes and starts to follow the instructions of the Northern Darkness. That thread of spirilar energy then begins to change, forming a written talisman that looks like a strange picture. In an instant, a strange feeling emerges in his mind.

    Qin Yu has a feeling that he can totally contain his aura with just a thought. All of this is done through the talisman that was formed from spirilar energy. He can even intensify the sucking force to absorb all of the energies around him, and he will look like a black hole in the eyes of other people at that time.

    Slightly controlling the talismans spirilar energy, Qin Yu makes his whole body start to swallow the energies in his surroundings, looking like a humanoid black hole. Now the air about him has become very strange.


    He controls the talisman, stopping it from working, and his entire body goes back to the original state.

    Ha-ha Ive finally succeeded. His eyes glitter, full of excitement. This triumph has eventually come after a long time of waiting. With this technique to change the air about him, if he also slightly alters his clothes and appearance, not even Sang Mo will be able to recognize him.

    However, Qin Yus smile disappears in an instant.

    Since Ive succeeded, its time to leave here. But must I leave here? He suddenly feels somewhat at a loss. After 3 years, the daily zither music has already become an indispensable part of his life. Miss Liers pure appearance when she healed someone has also been imprinted on his mind.

    Uncle Lan goes up to him from outside, saying with a smile: Liu Xing, youve unexpectedly been practicing for 9 days straight. Could it be youve succeeded?

    9 days?

    Qin Yu is startled in his heart. He did not expect that it had taken him 9 days to combine a thread of stellar energy with a thread of spiritual energy. As for success, of course he has succeeded. Now he can change his aura at will.

    Succeeded? No, its just that Ive made some progress. I still need a period of time to succeed. Qin Yu says to Uncle Lan.

    Oh. Uncle Lan gives a smile. Some progress is good too. 3 years ago, you couldnt even make any progress. I think you must also want to go to the overseas Xiuzhen world to roam about and make a name for yourself, right?

    Qin Yu has no choice but to nod.

    Very good. Try your best. Uncle Lan then turns around. But when he has just started to leave, he suddenly stops and looks back at Qin Yu. In an obviously solemn manner, he cautions: Liu Xing, dont forget the conversation between us 3 years ago.

    The conversation 3 years ago?

    When Qin Yu is still pondering, Uncle Lan has already left the room.

    Qin Yu pushes open the window of his room. As it happens, he can see the back rooms through this window. At the moment, Miss Li'er is sitting beside the window of her room with a zither put in front of her. Then, with her entire concentration, she begins to play the zither again.

    From Qin Yus position, he can only see a side of Miss Li'ers face.

    In the past, every time Miss Li'er played the zither, Qin Yu always listened to the music with eyes closed. He has never carefully observed her state when she is playing the zither like this. Wave after wave of beautiful sounds spreads out from the zithers strings. And Miss Li'ers face seems to be radiating various charming rays of light.

    At this moment, Qin Yu is somewhat dazzled.

    Days like this do not last long. A half month later, the tranquility of the ravine is broken because a group of Xiuyaoists has been detected outside the ravine. This group of Xiuyaoists is zealously and carefully searching around. It seems they are hunting for someone.

    Sis Lier, this is bad. When I was strolling about outside just now, I was questioned by a Xiuyaoist. The Blood-red Cave is currently hunting for a Xiuxianist. Purple-clad Yan Zi rushes inside while saying loudly and urgently.

    Qin Yu frowns in his room.

    He certainly knows that the Blood-red Cave has been hunting for him. However, in the beginning, it only sent a large number of subordinates to carry out a rough sweep using their holy senses. After 2 years, they still could not find him despite having searched the entire territory of the Blood-red Cave with the holy senses.

    Qin Yu originally thought that the Blood-red Cave would give up, but it has unexpectedly ordered Xiuyaoists to search carefully on a large scale, and now they have come close to this place.

    Even though that illusionary technique is very profound, no one can be sure that it will not be seen through by someone!

    If it is seen through, the Blood-red Caves forces will come here, and

    Dont worry, Yan Zi, those Xiuyaoists wont find this place. Miss Li'er says with a smile. Obviously she is very relaxed.

    Uncle Lan, who is drinking tea in the courtyard, pays no attention to this either.

    Uncle Lan, Miss Li'er, Ive succeeded in practicing my Northern Darkness technique. Im about to leave here. Qin Yu says smilingly while walking out of his room. At the same time, he begins to control that talisman formed from spirilar energy in his head.

    In an instant, Qin Yus whole body is like a black hole. Not only does it not emit any amount of his aura, it also sucks in all of the energies around him, including holy energy.

    Qin Yus appearance also starts to change. Even though the changes are very small, they make his entire body look much grimmer. This is the appearance of assassin Liu Xing in the past. He is also dressed in a black robe, which was forged by Lei Wei in Lei Mountain House.

    With this, I believe nobody will recognize me.

    He says smilingly while looking at Miss Li'er, Uncle Lan and that little girl Yan Zi.

    Now his hair is only 1 cun long. Thanks to the black robe he is wearing and his upper bodys muscles, he looks very handsome and solemn. This coupled with his bodys ability to absorb all the energies around like a black hole gives him an ice-cold air.

    Good, good! Uncle Lan looks at Qin Yu with a hint of approval in his eyes.

    Qin Yu gives a smile. He always feels that Uncle Lan is unfathomable and seems able to see through all of his thoughts.

    Seeing Qin Yus current appearance, Miss Li'er also praises with brightening eyes: Mister Liu Xings secret technique is really very profound. Im sure no one will be able to recognize you.

    At this moment, a voice rises!

    Ah, big brother Liu Xing, I want to go with you. Master, please let me go out. Hei Yu is even weaker than me but he is outside at the moment. Please let me go out. Hou Fei hurriedly rushes up to them while saying nonstop.

    He also looks at Qin Yu, urging him unceasingly with his eyes. At the same time, he says via his holy sense: Big brother Liu Xing, help me please!

    Qin Yu smiles and also says to Uncle Lan: Uncle Lan, Fei Fei is a divine beast. With his power, nothing in the underwater Xiuyao world will be a danger to him. Plus, if he doesnt experience hardships, I think he wont be able to grow up. Please allow him to go out.

    Fei Fei is Hou Feis informal name. Only when Qin Yu had become very familiar with Hou Fei after 3 years did he start to call him so intimately.

    Hou Fei looks at Uncle Lan pitiably at once.

    Uncle Lan has no choice but to shake his head with a smile: All right, since Liu Xing said so, you can go with him. But you must remember, in a noncritical situation, dont go into berserk mode to fight. Do you understand? He looks solemnly at Hou Fei.

    Ah, I know. The latter immediately jumps in excitement.

    Hou Fei then holds Qin Yu in a clinch, but this is an enthusiastic embrace: Thank you, big brother Liu Xing. Lets go, big brother. I dont want to stay here anymore. Hou Feis heart has already flown outside the ravine. He is very excited at the moment.

    Qin Yu slightly nods. Suddenly he looks at Uncle Lan and Miss Li'er, saying: Miss Li'er, Uncle Lan, before leaving, I want to tell you that Liu Xing is only my nickname. My real name is -- Qin Yu.

    Fei Fei, lets go!

    He basically does not want to say anything else and walks out of the bamboo house directly.

    Ha-ha, Im going out, every demonic beast should prepare to get beaten by me, kaka ~~~ Hou Fei is extremely excited.

    Qin Yu does not look back because he does not want to.

    Will I ever return to this place? He asks himself inwardly, but not even he has an answer. He suddenly gives a smile: Perhaps I should live a life with a lot of bloodshed, intense emotions, and ups and downs!

    B5C19: Fiery eyes

    After going out of the ravine, Hou Fei is immediately filled with vitality. His fiery eyes look around in excitement. Seeing a huge whale swimming by, he utters a strange cry and reaches out a hand. Various beams of light then cover that whale completely.

    The whale begins to shrink extremely fast. In just a while, there is only a layer of skin left.

    Kaka, so much blood essence, it was so uncomfortable in the ravine. Id be told off even if I killed just a few fish there. Its really awesome out here, kaka ~~ Hou Fei waves his hands around and scratches his head. Obviously he is extremely excited.

    Qin Yu is slightly shocked in his heart. Only extremely rare demonic beasts possess this blood-absorbing technique, but Hou Fei unexpectedly can also use it. He is really worthy of being a divine beast.

    Fei Fei, this underwater Xiuyao world is very cruel. Dwellers here can fight each other because of just a rude word. Since divine beasts have astonishing potential, if someone discovers that youre a divine beast, maybe some experts will kill you immediately to prevent future troubles. So

    I know, big brother. Kaka, I just have to hide my identity, right? He-he. Hou Fei blinks his fiery eyes and says laughingly.

    Qin Yu has been staying in one place with Hou Fei for 3 years so he knows that he is very smart.

    Master already said that later I cant use berserk mode to fight. Ill hide my skills a bit more and show only 30% of my power. After thinking for a while, Hou Fei makes a decision.

    Qin Yu has also heard about Hou Feis berserk mode. In that state, Hou Fei is extremely frightening. He is already exceptionally outstanding in a normal state, so once he goes into berserk mode, he is simply terrifying!

    Take it.

    Qin Yu throws Hou Fei a jade identity card. Having killed quite a few Xiuyaoists, he naturally has quite a few identity cards. This identity card was taken out casually by him. After all, it will be slightly easier to act when each of them has an identity card.

    Kaka, what toy is this? Hou Fei receives the jade identity card and looks at it from top to bottom.

    Fei Fei, this jade identity card can confirm the holders identity. You only need to personalize it by blood then suck it in your body. Other Xiuyaoists can know which powerhouse you belong to. In general, those from the same camp arent allowed to fight each other while those from different camps are. And nobody is allowed to kill someone with a Nine Demons identity card. But these things only apply to ordinary Xiuyaoists. At the end of his explanation, Qin Yu adds a sentence.

    So what if he kills here? He will only have to face being chased by the guards of the Blood-red Cave. Of course, this will only happen if they can find out who the killer is.

    As long as he kills neatly and leaves behind no clues, who can he not kill?

    I understand these rules. They show that a power struggles going on between those camps, right? Humph humph, Ill also occupy a nice place sometime and recruit a bunch of subordinates. Im going to be the boss myself! Hou Fei is very wild and arrogant.

    Qin Yu gives a smile: Dont aim too high. Lets go. Ill slowly tell you about the big powerhouses of underwater Xiuyaoists on the way. Its not so simple to become a boss as you think.

    The 2 of them travel together. Qin Yu explains the power structure in the underwater Xiuyao world to Hou Fei and gives him some necessary basic knowledge en route. Of course, he obtained these pieces of information through using the Soul Examination a few years ago.

    Hey, you two stop. Were the Blood-red Caves guards.

    Following a loud shout, a 50 strong group appears in front of Qin Yu and Hou Fei. These 50 Xiuyaoists power levels are not bad, but their leader, the most powerful among them, is only at the late Jindan stage, which basically means nothing to Qin Yu and Hou Fei.

    Kaka, what did you call me for, kid? Hou Fei gives a strange laugh and stares at the thin leader.

    Being stared at by Hou Fei, that leader feels his entire bodys flesh creep. His heart even trembles: This monkey heard that Im a guard but he doesnt care about it at all. Judging from his aura, he must be a Yuanying expert. As for that fella beside him As soon as that thin Xiuyaoist sees Qin Yu, his face immediately goes pale.

    With his muscular chest and a rarely seen hairstyle that is only 1 cun long, Qin Yu has a steely air about him. Moreover, his entire body is covered in a black robe, which is flapping, and is absorbing all of the energies around him like a black hole while giving off not the slightest amount of his aura.

    The thin Xiuyaoists heart trembles even more when he sees Qin Yus eyes.

    Lordly, frosty and brutal as well!

    The thin Xiuyaoist quickly makes a judgment about Qin Yus character. Having been able to become the leader of a squad, he is rather insightful.

    Didnt you hear your grandpas question? Hou Feis strange voice rises again.

    The thin Xiuyaoist instantly looks at Hou Fei. A bit terrified by the latters stare, he says at once: Seniors, I am searching for a Xiuxianist according to an order of the Blood-red Cave. This Xiuxianists aura is forthright, his body doesnt have any demonic energy, and his own energy is very hot and pure! If the two of you know something about him, could you please tell this junior?

    This thin Xiuyaoist is very respectful at the moment and even talks about some characteristics of the Xiuxianist.

    A faint smile appears on the corners of Qin Yus mouth.


    When Qin Yu just went underwater, his aura was really forthright. This coupled with his blazing and pure energy indeed made him very recognizable. However, now that he has succeeded in practicing the Northern Darkness, his aura and the air about him have totally changed to the opposites.

    Hmm all of you can sod off. Hou Fei says while waving his hand.

    The thin Xiuyaoist is delighted at once. Paying basically no attention to Hou Feis disdain, he bows and says: Then I take my leave. After saying, he immediately says to his subordinates: Lets go search the southern area. Be quick. He then leads them away.

    He knows very well that even though there is a rule that forbids Xiuyaoists of the same camp from fighting each other, some just do not care about it.

    If the corpses are removed and no traces are left behind, no one will know anything.

    Heh-heh, a bunch of cowards, yet just now they even wanted to taste our flesh. Hou Feis fiery eyes flash with a red light. On one side, Qin Yu gives a smile. Once, when he was chatting with Uncle Lan long ago, Uncle Lan said that this Fiery-eyed Aquatic Monkey is obstinate and unruly by nature, and at the same time, he is innately violent and combative.

    Fei Fei, whered you think we should go?

    With his eyes glittering, Hou Fei says: Do you still have to ask? Just now didnt you say that in the common places within the territory of the Blood-red Cave, Xiuyaoists are scattered everywhere, and only the Blood-red Ridge has a great number of Xiuyaoists? Lets just go there!

    Qin Yu frowns.

    The Blood-red Ridge? It is the Blood-red Caves headquarters. Half of the Xiuyaoists within 8 million li of this place concentrate here.

    Knowing there is a tiger on a mountain, brave people tend to ascend it!

    Good, the Blood-red Ridge, lets go there.

    Qin Yus robe flutters while his eyes shine brilliantly. Hou Fei beside him also lets out a strange cry in excitement. Afterwards, side by side, the 2 of them head for the Blood-red Ridge extremely fast. Qin Yus black robe flaps as he goes through the water. His ice-cold eyes then suddenly flash with fierceness.

    The Blood-red Ridge?

    Perhaps not even Sang Mo will be able to identify him when facing him. Moreover, what is there for him to be afraid of? If worst comes to worst, he and Hou Fei will just go on a killing spree in the Blood-red Ridge. As a powerful individual, he must act a bit wild and impulsively. If he went against his hearts content, it would be the same as giving up the dangerous path of practice.


    The 2 of them travel at extremely high speeds. Qin Yus Flaming Sword was originally forged from In-rock Flaming Iron. Later in Lei Mountain House, Qin Yu had to blend a dark-natured crystal and a metallic-natured crystal with it to be able to upgrade it to a high-grade holy weapon.

    Qin Yu only needs to give the Flaming Sword a thought, it will turn black immediately and give off a dark aura. He can totally make it turn red and emit flames as well. And he can change its color to gold too.

    When riding on a black Flaming Sword, Qin Yu, also robed in black, looks very icy indeed.

    Kaka, interesting, interesting. Hou Feis fiery eyes unexpectedly shoot a dim red light into the distance. This is the 1st time that he has gone out so he is naturally very excited because he sees many underwater creatures that he has never seen before.

    Suddenly --

    Stop, big brother. At this moment, the red light shot out from Hou Feis fiery eyes becomes much clearer and shines directly on a rock at the bottom of the ocean.

    What are you doing? Qin Yu stops and looks at Hou Fei. He knows that he must have been told to stop for some reason because Hou Fei also has some special abilities.

    Hou Fei bares his teeth, looking very proud of himself: Big brother, this is one thing you dont know about. My fiery eyes have a special ability. The more powerful I am, the more formidable they become. Now they can already discover some natural treasures.

    Qin Yus heart beats faster.

    The fiery eyes can discover treasures?

    Kaka, break for me! Hou Fei reaches out a hand while laughing strangely. His black stick suddenly appears and lengthens at the same time. It hits that rock with a loud noise. The rock is immediately shattered and its fragments are sent flying in all directions. However, there is surprisingly a glowing red pebble in the center of the shattered rock.

    Qin Yu makes a sweep with his holy sense.

    Its unexpectedly a piece of high-grade warm jade. A piece of jade formed inside a rock, this is a good treasure. He has realized instantly that this kind of high-grade warm jade has quite a few specially good effects, for example, when put on a corpse, it will prevent the corpse from ever decaying.

    Moreover, if put on the body of a living person, it will calm his mind down, which is extremely useful to practitioners. And it can also be made into talismans and holy weapons.

    Hows that, big brother? Are my fiery eyes formidable? Hou Fei is very proud of himself.

    Theyre really outstanding. Qin Yu praises. Hou Fei is very strange. He unexpectedly does not want this piece of warm jade, throwing it directly to Qin Yu. Because of this, Qin Yu even thinks that Hou Fei does not like treasures, but as they continue to go forwards on their journey, he gradually realizes that he was wrong.

    The distance left between them and the Blood-red Ridge is not long, only more than 800,000 li. Along the way, Hou Fei unexpectedly discovers 7 more treasures, 5 of which he gives to Qin Yu and keeps the other 2 for himself.

    Only now does Qin Yu realize that Hou Fei likes some ores that can be forged into weapons but has no interest in precious mushrooms and rare grasses. He does not even like warm jade, gravelly crystals, moonlight yin crystals and so on.

    When Qin Yu and Hou Fei are about to reach the Blood-red Ridge, the master of the Blood-red Cave comes out from a closed-door training session again.

    In the main hall of the Blood-red Cave,

    Sitting in the master seat, Cha Hong has a very unpleasant expression at the moment. He is still unable to open that black jade case and that most basic Dust Removing Seal alone has taken him over 100 years. He has just left that secret room.

    It will take him about another year to open the case.

    When he went through closed-door training in the past, his mind was calm because he knew that there was still a long way to go. But now, when he has reached the final juncture, he becomes worried about gain and loss. Sometimes he is afraid that the 3 superpowers, Nine Demons Hall, Azure Dragon Palace and Blue Water Mansion, will know about the case, and sometimes he is afraid that someone among his subordinates will know about it and betray him.

    Cave master.

    Below him, the 13 guardians bows and says simultaneously. All of the Blood-red Caves guardians are experts. The weakest among them is only at the late Jindan stage, but this guardian can even rival ordinary Yuanying stage Xiuyaoists in terms of actual offense.

    And the strongest among them is even approaching Cha Hong in power. Cha Ge was a vice master but he was much weaker than the strongest guardian.

    Has that Xiuxianist been captured?

    Cha Hongs voice comes down from above. What can the 13 guardians and the remaining vice master on the lower part of the main hall possibly say?

    Big brother, that Xiuxianist is very cunning. Ive already investigated the few Xiuxian schools within 8 million li of this place, but the energy of none of them is burning hot and pure like the Xiuxianists. Cha Po takes a forward step, bows and says.

    Sang Mo also takes a step forwards, saying: Cave master, that Xiuxianist is very cunning. For the last 3 years, there have been no traces of him. Im wondering if he has gone into another powers territory.


    Cha Hong casts a glance at Sang Mo with his ice-cold eyes. Sang Mos heart immediately trembles.

    Weve been hunting for that Xiuxianist for 3 years. There are 8 powers under the Nine Demons Hall. I even asked the other powers cave masters to help me hunt for him, but even now there are still no traces of him. The other powers territories and the Nine Demons Halls territory cover an area of 90 million li in radius. Do you think a Xiuxianist could travel 90 million li in just 3 years?

    Cha Hong is merely one of the 8 cave masters under the Nine Demons Hall so he was only able to engage the help of the other 7 cave masters at best. As for the 2 superpowers Azure Dragon Palace and Blue Water Mansion, he is simply ineligible to ask them to do anything.

    Sang Mo, I remember you mentioned a black eagle last time? Cha Hong suddenly says.

    Sang Mo answers at once: Cave master, that day, when I was dealing with that Xiuxianist, there was a black eagle with him. It seems theres a very good relationship between them because they were trying hard to give each other a chance to run away.

    Sang Mo of course remembers clearly what happened during the fight that day. He knows Xiao Hei and Qin Yu were trying to create a chance to escape for each other.


    On the upper part of the hall, Cha Hong utters a word then says no more. All the other Xiuyaoists do not dare to make a sound. After a long time, Cha Hong suddenly says: Spread my order. From now on, not only will you have to hunt for that Xiuxianist, but also for that black eagle. Remember, its to hunt and capture, and not to kill.


    The 13 guardians and the vice master take the order in unison.

    With a wave of his large sleeve, Cha Hong immediately disappears from the main hall. The 13 guardians and the vice master know very well that he often undergoes closed-door training. Occasionally he will come out for a while, but will continue to undergo closed-door training afterwards, and he hates being disturbed during his training sessions the most.

    After catching the black eagle, the Xiuxianist will definitely come out. Isnt there a good relationship between them? Cha Hongs eyes flash with coldness. He then enters the secret room.

    To avenge his brothers death is very important, but it cannot compare with his black jade case. At the moment, after searching for treasures along the way, Qin Yu and Hou Fei have finally arrived in the Blood-red Caves headquarters -- the Blood-red Ridge.
