"What has that little rascal done recently?" On top of a sky-high ancient fortress, Duo Long of the Gray Wings Clan coldly asked with an unhappy countenance. Yu Rou and Di Shan were also at the same place with Duo Long. Both of them frowned and swept their eyes at Duo Long from a distance but did not reply to him. Not long after that, Ya Meng, Ka Ba, and Yi Tian Mo, the three leaders of the Demonic Sound Clan also flew towards that fortress. They all descended with strange faces. Three of them had an exceptional cultivating Realm. Their soul power was ecstatic and miraculous. They could sense any commotions on the Sound Beast Mountain while they still stayed inside of the Giant Stone Ancient City. At this moment, six of the top-class pagan warriors were standing on top of the ancient fortress, looking towards the Sound Beast Mountain from a distance and shuddering terrifyingly. The sky over there looked like it was being torn into pieces. Each of the cracked rifts could have devoured and swallowed all of the creatures. All kinds of dazzling light interlaced at one point. Deep inside the sky, thunder and lightning were just raging on and became chaotic, being tremendous enough to wreck the Sky and Earth. Those six pagans had a feeling that a powerful explosion could happen any time at the Sound Beast Mountain's peak. Once it exploded, this whole land would instantly turn into a void. All the creatures living on this land would be wiped out. The six of them understood that a major incident was coming close. Time was tight now. Even the Sound Beasts inside of the Sound Beast Mountain seemed to sense the changes and started to get into a flurry. They began to act disorderly, trying to get out and survive. "We are running out of time..." Yi Tian Mo's eyes were solemn, "In another month, if we still cannot find the way out, I don't think any of us will be able to escape from this catastrophe alive." All six of them looked extremely grave. "Di Shan, Yu Rou, to help that little rascal improve faster, I've given you guys the Heaven Fountain Concentrated Water as well as the female human beings. How is it going after all?" Duo Long asked with a cold-blooded voice. "Because of our two tribes, I've restrained my anger and agreed to let everything go. However, if that little rascal isn't worth it, hmm, before I die, I will peel his tendons, skin him alive, and let him suffer all kinds of tortures." Di Shan harrumphed but did not say anything. "He still has half of a month. After that, we will all take him to the Sound Beast Mountain." The matriarch of the White Wings Clan seemed to be the calmest. "Don't worry; Shi Yan has entered the Second Sky of the Earth Realm. His knowledge and ability to control the Heaven Flame have also reached a higher level. After half a month, his cultivation will be probably stable. At that time, his ability to use the powers will be extremely skillful and profound. That is the right time for us to enter the Sound Beast Mountain." Yi Tian Mo looked towards Shi Yan, quietly activating his soul sense. Yi Tian Mo's gray-white eyes suddenly flashed up a surprising light after a short moment. It seemed he'd just found out about something. Regarding soul aspect, Di Shan, Duo Long, and Yu Rou, the three leaders of the Wings Race could not be compared to the Demonic Sound Clan; thus, they did not recognize Yi Tian Mo's sneaky act. However, when Yi Tian Mo retreated his soul sense, the other two leaders of the Demonic Sound Clan, Ya Meng and KaBa, had noticed something. "Yi ge, did you discover something?" KaBa felt that something was a bit odd. He looked at Yi Tian Mo while asking. Yi Tian Mo slowly nodded when his countenance resumed to normal. He said, "That little rascal has not been idle during this time. I have to say that this guy is indeed extraordinary. After just scanning the ancient scriptures of the Demonic Sound Clan, he could have already broken through all the Formation Techniques that YaJi had placed in those human warriors' souls. Then, he planted his own Spirit Seed inside their souls. That genius can genuinely shock me." "What?" Ya Meng's face changed, he screamed out in shock, "Without our instructions, only relying on those ancient scriptures, how could he have known of the ways in using the Spirit Seed? How could he have disarmed the Soul Formation Technique of my son? How could he?" Di Shan's eyes brightened up. "You can check it yourselves." Yi Tian Mo coldly smiled. Ya Meng and Ka Ba were astonished for a while. They did not hesitate to send out their soul senses to check if Yi Tian Mo was right or not. After ten minutes, Ya Meng and Ka Ba both showed a surprised face; they chucked his tongue and nodded towards Di Shan and Yu Rou. "What does it mean?" Duo Long asked with a puzzled face, "Let's say he could understand the essence of the spiritual Upanishads of the Demonic Sound Clan, what can it prove? How useful can it be towards breaking the Formation Technique if he can explain the spiritual Upanishads? If it doesn't help in breaking the Formation Technique, his understanding is useless, just a waste of time." Yi Tian Mo glanced at Duo Long with a contemptuous look and frigidly said, "When a soul perception has reached a new level, its ability to control the surrounding circumstances are much more thorough, power handling will be more skillful, and the mental state will also develop. The Demonic Sound Clan and the Wings Race are not similar. Progress regarding the soul will bring us many good things that we can hardly imagine." "He is not lazy. The stronger that his soul is, the easier it can be for him to break the Formation Technique." Yu Rou said with a faint smile, "There are still two weeks to go. I long for his performance after that amount of time. I believe that this guy can help us get out of this damn place, returning to the Grace Mainland." "Why do you trust him that much?" Duo Long was very surprised. He had initially looked down on Shi Yan. He also thought that if he were at the Earth Realm and possessed the Heaven Flame like Shi Yan, it wouldn't have been easy for him to control the Heaven Flame skillfully. "I think that God will not let our two tribes perish." Yu Rou's eyebrows tightly knitted while saying, "No matter what, we have to trust him. If we don't trust him, it means that we don't believe that we could survive. When the Sound Beast Mountain has had a major change, a little rascal who can use the Heaven Flame suddenly appears out of nowhere. I have a feeling that our destiny had been settled when he showed up here. Perhaps our ancestors have heard our pleas ..." "Destiny has been settled ..." Yi Tian Mo mumbled again with a small voice. His eyes became eccentric. After a while, his face suddenly changed. He said, "This little rascal's existence is the result of our ancestors invoking the God King?" Ka Ba, YaJi, and Duo Long trembled while their faces changed dramatically. Only Yu Rou and Di Shan remained calm. Yu Rou even chuckled and gently said, "Who knows, if he is an 'autograph' of a God King, I think that I will follow the ancestor's guidance. Our ancestors used to say that if a descendant of the God Kings could bring us out of this devilish place, we would have to serve him as our Master." As soon as Ka Ba, Ya Meng, and Duo Long heard what Yu Rou had just said, they were all dazed with confused faces while their eyes kept moving. No one said anything. ... ... ... "Ptui." Inside the cage, Pan Zhe of the Penglai Divine land suddenly gushed out a mouthful of blood, staring at Shi Yan resentfully. In the stone room, Shi Yan was neglectfully motionless and slowly closed his eyes. There seemed to be a vague moving nimbus on his body. Under the attraction of the strange tattoo on his chest, the Sky and Earth aura quickly converged to his chest, continuously seeped into the black tattoo, and then turned into a purified force spreading all over his body. When condensing and refining the aura, the meridians in his entire body quietly transported and purified the aura which Shi Yan had just absorbed from some freshly-dead warriors. He then turned it into a mysterious force and poured it right into the middle of his abdomen. Half of a day later, Shi Yan slowly opened his eyes, casually shifted his look towards Pan Zhe, and calmly said, "You're lucky that you're not dead yet. Ease your mind. If you can survive more than two weeks, I will spare your life." Currently, there were only twelve warriors of the Endless left. The rest had been dead as Shi Yan had carelessly experimented them for his studies on the spiritual Upanishads. The Demonic Sound Clan had different kinds of magical Spiritual Upanishads which were extremely mysterious and marvelous. When he practically experimented with it, mistakes were hard to be avoided. When he made mistakes, he had to pay a big price, which was someone's life. These warriors taken from YaJi became the best specimens for his cultivation. By having risked their lives, Shi Yan had progressed incredibly in understanding the spiritual soul as well as the different kinds of Upanishads of the Demonic Sound Clan. For those who were his experimental objects, once their souls had been destroyed, the refined aura in their body would spread out and went into Shi Yan's body, turning into a mysterious and purified force inside of his body. With the significant progress on the soul, profound Qi in his body also had been enhanced steadily. He felt that he would soon have upgraded to a new level, entering the Third Sky of the Earth Realm. "Shi Yan, you will not have a decent death." Pan Zhe clenched his teeth and angrily said, "You'd better kill me soon. Otherwise, I will make you pay a big price for this!" Pan Zhe had formerly controlled his emotions very well. However, during the time his soul had been tortured, he collapsed. When Shi Yan's soul consciousness actively stirred in Pan Zhe's head, Pan Zhe could still feel something because Shi Yan's skill was still immature. Every time Shi Yan had triggered his soul consciousness, Pan Zhe had a feeling of hundreds of little worms gnawing his brain. This feeling had made a steadfast person like Pan Zhe fearfully scream out. Pan Zhe was just better off dead as Shi Yan treated him badly time after time. An image of a hero in the past had no remnants left. Resentment was burning violently inside Pan Zhe's heart. He was angry that he could not tear Shi Yan's body apart. "Hmm, if you can survive, I will be waiting for your revenge in the future." Shi Yan revealed a faint smile. He thought, "Even if you can survive, I will place many formation techniques in your soul. In the future, if you return to the Endless Sea, you will be my eye in the Penglai Divine land and also possibly help me collect the latest information there." Ignoring Pan Zhe's screams, Shi Yan deliberately stood up, knitted his eyebrows looking at the stone door closing tightly nearby with suspicion. During this time, it was either because of their inability to resist Shi Yan or having other purposes that Cao Zhi Lan, Gu Ling Long, and Qi Yan Qing persistently stayed inside of the stone chamber. After contemplating a little bit, when Shi Yan was about to find He Qing Man to ask about it, he suddenly noticed that the Blood Vein Ring had just flared up a stream of light. "Oh!?" After flickering his mind, Shi Yan immersed himself into the Blood Vein Ring. He immediately realized that the Earth Flame was slowly condensing and refining the Heaven Flame; its living form was getting more and more flawless, seeming to have a little of aura similar to the one of the Ice Cold Flame. "Has the evolution already been completed?" Shi Yan was astounded. He instantly sent out his soul consciousness. "Already done. I feel like ... like I have a new life. I am really, really different." The Earth Flame sent back its message.
