Wuxiaworld > God of Slaughter > 385 Arrival
After Ai Ya, Cai Yi, Lao Li, and Lao Lun realized that Shi Yan had the Star Martial Spirit, and noticed the relationship between Shi Yan and the Divine Radiant Cult, they started being cautious when looking at him and no longer underestimated him.
Even in the Divine Land, the reputation of the Divine Radiant Cult was like thunder, as it was not inferior to the Merchant Union or Empyrean.
No matter how mighty a warrior was, if he did not have a good background, those guys who were born with noble status would look down on him. As Shi Yan had proven his relationship with the Divine Radiant Cult, his status rose immediately.
Even now, when Ai Ya faced Shi Yan once again, she also had to treat him with caution.
After having determined Shi Yan to be their leader, the four of them no longer disputed. Since then, although Shi Yan was still the one who pioneered the road as before, whenever they encountered any abnormal situations, they would seek Shi Yan’s advice and take actions according to his assignments.
Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist was foggy all year-round. Neither the sun nor the moon or stars could be seen. There was no separated day and night, nor any way to measure time.
Only Ai Ya’s compass in her hand could vaguely calculate the relative passage of time.
Half a month had passed in a flash.
During this period of half a month, Shi Yan had led in front to pioneer the road. Ai Ya’s compass identified if there were any dangers ahead. If there was any abnormal problem, Shi Yan would be the one who moved forward to explore.
On one hand, Shi Yan’s ability was powerful. On the other hand, as he had the Sky-breaking Shuttle, regardless of encountering beasts or fearful lands, he could always solve the problem, either by escaping from those beasts or using the Sky-breaking Shuttle to fly out of the fearful land.
Although there were a lot of beasts in the Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist, the competence of Shi Yan’s group was not weak. They would immediately retreat if they faced any powerful flocks of beasts, and would unite to kill those beasts if they were not strong.
The fearful land was not easy to deal with. However, with the Sky-breaking Shuttle, the fearful land was no longer a threat to Shi Yan.
During half a month, the five people of Shi Yan’s group had still been moving forward deep into the Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist, meeting a lot of beasts and encountering many other teams of warriors.
The five of them had joined forces, beheaded some beasts, exterminated three teams, and got a lot of Demon Crystals.
Regarding the distribution of these Demon Crystals, Shi Yan was very fair. He was not dependent on Demon Crystals too much, so he only took a small part. The majority was divided between the other four, so that they could use those Demon Crystals to restore their strength.
What Shi Yan did actually puzzled the four of them. They didn’t know how he could be that generous, giving them most of the Demon Crystals in this Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist, which was the only thing that could restore Profound Qi.
Obviously, not knowing the reason was not very important as the four of them still could benefit a lot from this.
Gradually, although they formerly hadn’t been willing to make Shi Yan their leader, their attitude had changed by now. They honestly supported Shi Yan and considered him their true leader, especially the two brothers. When Ai Ya had still been the leader, most Demon Crystals were distributed to Ai Ya and Cai Yi, and they could only harvest a small part. Thus, they didn’t benefit a lot from it.
However, since Shi Yan had become the leader, everything was different. Shi Yan was fair, giving up most of Demon Crystals, which helped significantly enhance the two brothers’ harvest. Hence, they were even more pleased to see Shi Yan be their leader, as they felt that following him had many more benefits than following Ai Ya and Cai Yi.
As a leader, Shi Yan had set clear guidelines from the beginning.
Before getting out of the Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist, they must put down the selfishness, and were not allowed to employ fatal and wicked tricks towards the team members, and they must work together. If anyone made a bad decision for the team, the other people had the right to kill that person.
After this guideline had been set, although Ai Ya, Cai Yi, and the two brothers still had suspicion towards each other, they no longer had intentions to kill their companions. Gradually, this small team somehow had a sincere cooperation; they didn’t have as many cunning calculations as before.
During half a month, when there was no danger, Shi Yan always calmed down to comprehend the Star Martial Spirit in his body, as well as conceptions of the Life and Death Seal.
From Ai Ya, Cai Yi, and the two brothers, Shi Yan now knew martial spirits’ drawbacks. He then soon considered the comprehension of conception his long-term goal, hoping to have fewer troubles when entering the Sky Realm, thoroughly understanding the martial arts Upanishads.
He carefully kept the thirty-seven Golden Silks hidden away, which he had taken from Ning Ze’s people. These thirty-seven Golden Silks became a secret weapon in his hand. Once the Golden Silks and Gravitational Field were cast out, the Gravitational Field’s power would be enhanced significantly. Any warrior falling into the Gravitational Field would first be cut into pieces by the Golden Silks, and then ground into powder by the Gravitational Field. As for the golden silkworm, it was also refined by the Earth Flame in the Blood Vein Ring. Because the Earth Flame had such a great loss last time, its power had seriously reduced. Even after half a month, it couldn’t refine all barriers on the ten-thousand-year golden silkworm.
This made Shi Yan somehow depressed. He thought that he would look for a place where the ten-thousand-year Earth Flame could recover.
On this day, the five people of Shi Yan’s group continued moving forward in the Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist.
Violent energy fluctuations suddenly came up from the dense, foggy area ahead. Shi Yan and Ai ya explored the way, side by side. Her graceful body suddenly trembled, her soft hand holding the compass stiffened and her full red lips slightly shivered. She couldn’t help but pleasantly scream, "I think… we are going to arrive soon."
Shi Yan, who was next to her, was also agitated after hearing what she said. He cried out loud, "You have discovered it?"
He had heard Ai Ya and Cai Yi say that there were two magical sites in the Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist.
One of them might have Sacred level or even God level secret treasures. The other one might have a Pure God Soul. The people of Ai Ya’s group had entered the Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist because of these two places.
Since they were going to see the miasma places after a long time in this Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist, they couldn't restrain their joy while their eyes were lit up.
Sacred level Secret Treasures were extremely precious in the Endless Sea. Only the leaders of forces could possess Sacred level Secret Treasures. Ordinary people couldn’t even see them.
As for the God level Secret Treasures, they were legendary. He had only heard but had never seen them.
In the center of the Grace Mainland on the Divine Land were only a few God level Secret Treasures. Each of them had intimidating and Earth-shaking power. Kinh mạo was the sect guarding treasure that was in the hand of masters at the peak of the Pyramid.
Because of the Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist’s special features, surrounding these two miasma places was a kind of protective group of clouds. Inside it was the Soul Perishing Thunderbolt, that could even destroy the God Realm warriors’ host souls. Hence, even if three God Realm warriors went into the Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist, it would still be difficult for them to enter these two great miasma places. So, every time warriors penetrated the Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist, they were all Sky realm warriors or below.
If there weren’t the Soul Perishing Thunderbolt outside the two miasma places, top-class warriors of the Three Gods Sect in the Divine Land would come here in person for those God level Secret Treasures. They would compete to obtain Secret Treasures and the Pure God Soul in these miasma places, with the purpose of enhancing their own sects’ power.
Only due to this setup, the warriors in the Nirvana or Sky Realm like Shi Yan could have a chance to enter these two great miasma places and harvest secret treasures and the God Soul.
After Ai Ya had slightly screamed, her slender fingers quickly dialed the needle of the compass. The needle of the compass in her white hand kept spinning. Flickering blue lights splashed from the compass like fireflies flying around the compass and making it look very brilliant.
Not long after that, those blue lights splashing everywhere suddenly gathered outside the compass and faintly formed a phantom. That phantom was ambiguous and surrounded by thick, gray clouds. Purple snakes meandered out of the gray clouds, blooming with amazing electric lights.
"Soul Perishing Thunderbolt!" Ai Ya screamed out again, forced a faint smile, and then said to Shi Yan, "Seeing the Soul Perishing Thunderbolt means that we have found the miasma places. We have finally arrived."
Since the time Shi Yan had first met her, he had never seen her smile. But now, the corner of her mouth had already revealed a faint smile. Her cold momentum suddenly disappeared, and instead, gave people a fresh and moving feeling.
She was like a group of frozen flowers that exposed their true beauty after the ice had melted away.
Looking at Ai Ya’s faint smile from the corner of her mouth, Shi Yan was stunned. He was startled a little bit before speaking up. "In fact, you look better with your smile than your previous indifferent look. Hmm, you should smile more often."
Ai Ya instantly stopped smiling. Her beautiful eyes showed a weird trace. She coldly looked at Shi Yan, grunted, and then lowered her voice. "Who needs you to care?"
Shi Yan didn’t get angry, shook his head, and coldly said, "Less pretending to be noble in front of me. It’s not like I have never seen your body without clothes."
"Shi Yan!" Ai Ya’s face changed. She screamed an ear-splitting sound and said while showing her icy look, "I will deal with you sooner or later."
"I am so afraid." Shi Yan sneeringly mocked.
At this moment, Cai Yi and the other two brothers all were wearing joy on their faces after having heard Ai Ya’s screams. They moved forward, looking ahead with brightened eyes.
Ai Ya was about to open her mouth and continue to say something, but seeing the other three people coming, she then just grunted and aggressively stared at ShiYan, quickly turning the compass towards the three people. She restored her coldness and then said, "We have arrived. The moving gray, foggy area ahead should be one of the miasma places. I have seen the Soul Perishing Thunderbolt there."
Cai Yi and the two brothers were overjoyed and burst into laughter together.
"We are certainly not the first ones here. In that miasma place, there must be other teams who have come here. Are you well-prepared? Once we enter that miasma place, we will have to face many powerful forces from every direction. No one can be sure if we can get out of there alive or not. Are you ready?" Ai Ya asked coldly.
The smiles of Cai Yi and the two brothers suddenly faded away, and their face darkened. They silently nodded.
"I think we should first recover, wait for our power to restore completely, and then we can go into that miasma place," ShiYan suggested.
The other four people nodded, found secluded corners for themselves, and then used Demon Crystals to restore their Profound Qi, enhancing their bodies to their peak state.
