386 The Galaxy, the ancient corpses, and the secret treasures

After a period of rest, the Profound Qi of the five people of Shi Yan’s group had reached their peak. Each of them was refreshed and full of vitality.
"Let’s go. We can enter that exotic land now." Shi Yan came out first, looking at the others and told them, "You should be very careful. Do not spread out. During this long journey, we have experienced a lot of hardships, and have begun to have a wholehearted cooperation. I hope this time, when we enter that exotic land, everyone can have a great harvest."
The four of them nodded altogether.
"Brother, when we are in that exotic land, we will need to rely on you. Ning Ze is definitely in there as well. So, if we reencounter him, we need your gray tornado." Lao Li laughed and said.
Along the way, at a crucial point of time, Shi Yan’s Gravitational Field had played an important role with its huge power. In Lao Li’s eyes, the Gravitational Field Shi Yan cast out was simply a murderous whirlpool. No one could be strong enough to avoid death inside that whirlpool.
Entering the exotic land meant that they would encounter outstanding warriors from everywhere in the Divine Land. That made Lao Li a little bit worried, and thus, he wanted to rely on Shi Yan.
"I will try my best. As long as you trust me and do not secretly mess with me, I will also protect you guys." Shi Yan looked at Ai Ya and Cai Yi and grinned, "If you have any wicked actions while I am in danger, don’t blame me for not having mercy."
Ai Ya and Cai Yi grunted, but didn’t say anything.
"Let’s go," Shi Yan said nothing further as he revealed a faint smile. He was the first one to jump into that foggy area with caution.
However, as soon as he fell into the area where the gray smoke was concentrated, he realized that big, long, purple pythons were quickly dashing toward him as if they just saw their prey.
"Soul Perishing Thunderbolt!"
Shi Yan couldn’t help but strangely howl and shudder. He was aware of the Earth-shaking, destructive aura and immediately retreated.
The purple pythons then restored their normal status. After Shi Yan had left, they no longer aimed at him but retreated as if they were only coming out for him.
"Why are they coming for me?" Shi Yan’s face became cold. He emotionlessly looked at Ai Ya and Cai Yi, "You intentionally want to harm me? You have said that this Soul Perishing Thunderbolt only aims for the host souls of the True God Realm warriors. I am only in the Nirvana Realm. So why is this Soul Perishing Thunderbolt still against me?"
He couldn’t help but doubt. If it weren’t because he had urged both the Star Light and the Electric Shift to get out like teleporting, that Soul Perishing Thunderbolt would probably have hit him and destroyed his host soul.
If his host soul was destroyed, it meant that he would completely disappear from time.
"It’s impossible." Cai Yi’s beautiful face changed. Seeing Shi Yan getting angry, she hurriedly explained. "I have heard from my predecessors that Soul Perishing Thunderbolt around this exotic land only aims for the Three Gods Sects’ warriors. My elders definitely didn’t deceive me. How can you be impacted by that Soul Perishing Thunderbolt? This is absolutely impossible."
Lao Li also nodded and said suspiciously, "Brother Shi Yan, we will never deceive you about this Soul Perishing Thunderbolt. Before I entered the Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist, my elders had also told me that although this Soul Perishing Thunderbolt’s intimidation is very powerful, it only influences the Three Gods Sects’ warriors. How can you also be affected?"
"I didn’t lie to you." Ai Ya coldly hummed and said, "Before we get out of the exotic land, you play a very important role. We can’t just ignore the whole situation to harm you."
After talking, Ai Ya carefully entered that gray, foggy area. Those big, long, purple pythons twisted and emitted horrible lights as if they could destroy all souls.
However, when Ai Ya fell into that area, the Soul Perishing Thunderbolt didn’t attack her, but instead, stayed in front of her while meandering.
Ai Ya came out, looked at Shi Yan and said indifferently, "I went in, but why didn’t I encounter the same event as you did?"
Shi Yan’s face became sullen and kept changing.
When Ai Ya had gone in and out, Soul Perishing Thunderbolt had no reaction, which meant that this Soul Perishing Thunderbolt apparently didn’t aim for warriors who didn’t belong to the Three Gods Sect. It proved that what these people of Ai Ya’s group had said was not a lie.
So, why had he just entered that place, and the Soul Perishing Thunderbolt instantly reacted?
Shi Yan frowned but couldn’t think of any reason.
"Brother, are you a Sky Realm warrior?" Lao Li quietly mumbled, looking at Shi Yan with disbelieving, shining eyes.
Ai Ya’s and Cai Yi’s beautiful faces suddenly changed. Their eyes brightened, looked at him with a strange expression.
"If I were a Sky Realm warrior, do you think you could have had a chance to bully me along the way?" Shi Yan didn’t know if he should smile or cry. "If I had that high a realm, I wouldn’t have stayed here with you guys and would have attempted to break in that exotic land even though I don’t know anything about it." Listening to Shi Yan’s explanation, Ai Ya and Cai Yi carefully thought for a while and also knew that their suspicions were ridiculous. They secretly let out of sigh of relief.
"If you are not in the Sky Realm, your host soul is obviously like an ordinary person. Is it so?" Cai Yi hesitated a little bit while her beautiful eyes were full of strange lights. "I am sure that your host soul and ours are not the same."
Ai Ya and the other three people looked at him.
Shi Yan was stunned while his eyes flickered. He instantly remembered the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame and his host soul had fused together. This Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame was a Heavenly Flame which had a devilish power to burn up souls. Was it somehow related?
As he didn’t speak up, Ai Ya’s group was even more certain about this and looked at him with terrified eyes.
After a long while, Shi Yan nodded and said with a smile, "Maybe you are right. My host soul was a bit unusual indeed. Hmm, I shouldn’t have wronged you. This is my own problem. Alright, you guys go ahead. I will find you guys later."
"Once you enter, that Soul Perishing Thunderbolt will not spare you. So, how will you come in?"
"No worries, I have my own way." Shi Yan confidently looked at that smoky gray area. "None of the barriers of the fearful land could trap me, so how can this Soul Perishing Thunderbolt? As long as I can cross the outskirts of the exotic land and go deeper to the center of that place, I will no longer be affected by that Soul Perishing Thunderbolt."
The people of Ai Ya’s group immediately remembered how marvelous Shi Yan was.
Every time in the fearful land, Shi Yan could easily escape without any difficulties. Right now, listening to what he said, Ai Ya’s group understood immediately.
"No one knows how the situation in the exotic land is. How can you be certain that you can find us in there?" Ai Ya thought for a while and asked suspiciously.
"Don’t worry. I have my way," Shi Yan looked at Cai Yi.
He had left a barrier inside Cai Yi’s host soul. Within a certain range, he could detect Cai Yi’s location through that barrier. Therefore, he was confident that it would not be difficult to find the four of them.
"Humm," Cai Yi knew what he meant. Her face looked a little odd.
Cai Yi then went into that gray, foggy area without looking at Shi Yan, as if she was in a rage.
The other three people were bewildered, looking at Cai Yi with astonishment. They vaguely guessed that the reason Shi Yan was that confident might be related to Cai Yi. But the three of them didn’t ask about it. After Cai Yi had left, they also entered that place and slowly disappeared into the foggy area.
Shi Yan was not in a hurry. He waited for a long while after the three of them had disappeared, before taking out the Sky-breaking Shuttle and then trying to communicate with it. "Bring me through that barrier in front of us, avoid those destroying souls’ thunderbolts, and go straight to the center. How much Profound Qi do I need to spend?"
"One-third."
"Ok. I will inject the Profound Qi into you, and then you will bring me in there."
"Possible."
The Sky-breaking Shuttle broke through a gorgeous silver channel and brought Shi Yan into that place. When Shi Yan penetrated that area, the Soul Perishing Thunderbolt around that silver channel didn’t have any reaction, because the Sky-breaking Shuttle had formed a channel to cover him. It helplessly let him continue ahead.
The shaking halo rippled out. Shi Yan’s body was like lightning drilling into the area in just one blink.
After re-appearing, Shi Yan realized that he was in a magnificent old city center. There were hundred-meters high ancient buildings with ancient stones, together with dozens of these building which looked like small mountains. The roads in the ancient city extended in all directions. They were all smooth and made of hard, green stones.
There were four enormous mountains at the four sides of the ancient city. These four mountains formed four symbols, respectively showing the postures of a bowing Black Turtle, meandering Azure Dragon, dancing Vermillion Bird, and the patrolling White Tiger. The four mountains were huge and vaguely surrounded the ancient city.
Two vast rivers flowed meanderingly, hanging in the sky above the ancient city. The two rivers intertwined, emitting beautiful dazzling lights.
The two galaxies hanging in the sky were immense. Bursts of volatility came up from the two rivers. Floating corpses in the water of the Milky Way could be faintly seen. People could also see God lights zooming over in the galaxy, as if there was some secret treasure that had a spirit and was operating in the galaxy.
The ancient city, the four mountains, and the galaxies suspending in the sky all constituted this magnificent but strange place.
After emerging, Shi Yan instantly looked at the two galaxies that were hanging above his head as well as the gorgeous weaving beam of lights.
He could feel a violent shaking power transmitted from that weaving point. That energy was extremely intimidating and seemingly endless.
The four huge mountain ranges surrounded the ancient city, forming the four postures of the bowing Black Turtle, meandering Azure Dragon, dancing Vermillion Bird, and the patrolling White Tiger, which brought along the concept of wealth and fortune. This meant this land was a blessed land, very rare on Earth and sky, and was blessed and protected by the four ancient, sacred creatures.
In this imposing ancient city, some figures could be seen from time to time in those buildings. They were all outstanding warriors who could enter the exotic land. Those warriors wore cold faces, sometimes raising their heads to look at the sky, and watch around all four mountains as they seemed to be aware of something.
Shi Yan stood on an ancient road and quickly identified Cai Yi’s location through the barrier he had planted inside her host soul.
Taking a deep breath, Shi Yan temporarily ignored this exotic land and instantly urged the Star Light, turning into a bunch of lights that dashed towards the four people of Cai Yi’s group.
