1043 Shoulder the responsibility

Meteors moved around Shi Yan like flaming diamonds, changing constantly. They flew around while drawing beautiful lights with explosive power.

Shi Yan clasped his hands, standing atop the battleships and looking here and there. His soul was empty, but he seemed to know the directions of those meteors.

As soon as his Ethereal Extent was formed, he had a tremendous change. His power Upanishads had combined perfectly with the Ethereal Extent. When he urged different energies, the Ethereal Extent would change accordingly. It cooperated closely with the soul to perform the best subtle ability of one power Upanishad.

His Ethereal Extent looked like a new galaxy, with shining broken stars and a big star that used to be hidden in the nebula in his lower abdomen. That star had the vague energy of Life and Death. 

The stars and space were the essential elements of the universe. Today, his Ethereal Extent seemed to perfectly resize the universe with the eternal life and death energy, magically and continually changing inside.

Being the owner of the Ethereal Extent, he was the sole God of that world who could control everything. His power Upanishads could change endlessly in his Ethereal Extent, and they could flash in the real world as well.

The only thing he regretted was that his Devouring power Upanishad didn't merge with the Ethereal Extent. He vaguely felt that the ability of his Devouring power Upanishad didn't need the Ethereal Extent to become effective.

His Ethereal Extent connected to seven hundred and twenty acupuncture points in his entire body. His acupuncture points were like a bunch of small spaces. If the Ethereal Extent was a sea, the acupuncture points were seven hundred and twenty small lakes. As long as he could solve the mysteries in there, those lakes could stream into the sea.

Perhaps, at that moment, he could finally understand the magical abilities of the Devouring power Upanishad.

Shi Yan had a good vibe he had never had before. Looking at the rocketing meteors, he relaxed his mind to connect his Soul Consciousness to them. At this moment, he could see something inexplicable. The complex, disorderly trajectories of the stars reflected in his Sea of Consciousness. Shi Yan was now able to grasp a good knowledge of their flying rules and courses.

It was a new and exciting experience.

Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!

Silhouettes gathered from the other battleships. Blood Devil, Bath, Gu Te, Feng Yan, Fu Wei, Xia Xin Yan, and Zha Duo appeared, looking at him in awe.

"You've built the Ethereal Extent?" Blood Devil laughed, his face happy. Fu Wei and Xia Xin Yan had a strange light ripple through their pretty eyes. 

"Yeah, I've successfully built the Ethereal Extent," Shi Yan smiled modestly. "Not as difficult as I thought."

The people there were frightened, having a brilliant light flashing in their eyes as they admired and sighed.

He had used several months to create the Ethereal Extent. Compared to the majority of warriors, his speed was incredible. They couldn't have even imagined this kind of a speedy breakthrough.

Zha Duo sighed inwardly, frightened of Shi Yan's outstanding talent. He realized his narrow-minded vision which couldn't recognize Shi Yan's powerful potential.

"This place... is a little strange," While people were still baffled, Shi Yan frowned, looking ahead of them as he said, "Those meteors are so powerful. They move really fast with an endless power. As we're flying in this place, we've met a lot of trouble, I assume?"

Blood Devil, Bath, Gu Te, and Feng Yan, the four Incipient God Realm experts exchanged forced smiles.

Zha Duo's face was grimaced. He lowered his voice, whispering. "Our Potion and Tool Pavilion has lost ten battleships."

Shi Yan didn't mind him. He looked at Xia Xin Yan, sighing. "You had to endure a lot of trouble that year."

He knew of Xia Xin Yan's realm a hundred years ago. He also knew that they had to jump into the chaotic space basin from the Ice and Fire Secret Domain. On the way to Shadow Ghostly Prison, they had to experience so many adversities. Shi Yan could feel for her, thinking about what dangerous and hopeless situation she had to overcome that year. 

"I am living happily now, aren't I?" Xia Xin Yan smiled warmly and tenderly. Her beautiful face only had joy, as the gloomy thoughts were all washed away.

Fu Wei looked at Shi Yan and Xia Xin Yan whispering to each other, and had a rare lost expression. She could only sigh weakly inwardly.

"We will enter the most dangerous area in three days. At that time, there'll be more shooting stars. The battleships would have to face impacts on a large scale. It's good that you woke up. Otherwise, if the battleship shook, it could have affected your condition." Blood Devil grinned, patting Shi Yan's shoulder. "Good. You're doing well. I think your future attainment would surpass mine."

As Bath and Gu Te saw Blood Devil being so excited, they frowned and then turned around to scold McGee and Gu Mo, saying that they didn't put much effort, and were just playing and messing around. If they didn't set their mind on cultivating, they would never turn into the new stars.

McGee didn't bother with it as he grinned strangely. "My brother Shi Yan has extraordinary talents. Of course, normal people can't compare with him."

Gu Mo just glared at Shi Yan, saying nothing.

Three days later, the meteors in front of them could be seen moving like flaming balls. More than one thousand fireballs were moving, weaving with each other to create a thick-mesh light net. They traveled really fast, giving people an impressive visual shock.

Xia Xin Yan discolored, talking all of a sudden. "It doesn't look quite right!"

Feng Yan also knitted her brows. "It's much dangerous than the past. It's not what I've seen!"

Blood Devil, Gu Te, and Bath looked at the area ahead of them, their faces stern. They all raised one hand to signal their sauntering battleships to stop moving.

Feng Yan and Zha Duo immediately signaled to their battleships as well. The battleships of Fighting League and Potion and Tool Pavilion also halted.

Many warriors gingerly looked forward, knitting their brows.

Electric beams sparked in the void due to those interlaced meteors, creating an explosive energy. The collisions due to the shooting stars were extremely horrifying. No need to mention the battleships, even the Incipient God Realm experts couldn't relax while dealing with them.

"What awaits behind that area?" Shi Yan suddenly asked, looking at Feng Yan and Xia Xin Yan.

"It's a space hub with passages leading to other star areas. It's the most magical area of the Shadow Ghostly Prison, with countless space slits. However, most of those space slits aren't clear. The Fighting League isn't sure what kind of dangers await in those space slits, and which star areas they connect to." Feng Yan contemplated for a while. She couldn't help but look at Zha Duo and Fu Wei. "Your Potion and Tool Pavilion understands the general picture of Agate Star Area much better. Do you have any information about this place?" 

Zha Duo and Fu Wei exchanged looks, forcing a smile. Fu Wei explained, "This area has the surveillance light mirrors of the Satellite Eye, which is a magical tool of Potion and Tool Pavilion. However, Great Elder Zuo Lou controls this system."

"Someone is using supernatural powers to block the area ahead. They want to prevent people from entering the area easily." Shi Yan pondered for a while, closing his eyes to sense. "Many shooting stars over there don't belong to the area. Someone has mobilized them and changed their trajectories, so they are wreaking havoc here."

Pausing for a while, he took a deep breath, opening his arms. "Don't be upset if I attack your confidence. Even if we have four Incipient God Realm experts to protect us, we will lose at least half of the battleships we have here. Hmm, it's just a modest estimation. I think that the losses would be bigger."

As soon as he said that, everyone couldn't help but grimace.

It had been several months since they had chosen the quiet route to enter the space canal controlled by the Dark Shadow Clan. They had to do that to prevent disclosing their whereabouts. If they used the regular route, the Dark Shadow Clan would spot them instantly, and it would be hard to carry out a sudden operation.

However, if they returned now, not only they would waste their time, but the Dark Shadow Clan would also have a chance to bust them.

The Dark Shadow Clan had been operating in this area for so many years, and their understanding was much deeper than the Potion and Tool Pavilion or the Fighting League's. If they knew this force's whereabouts and purpose, they could set up preparations and ambush. Blood Devil's team would be the ones with bad luck at that point.

"As we're here, we can only move forward or retreat and quit entering the Dark Shadow Clan's space passage. When we change our route, this big commotion will cause us to fall into the Dark Shadow Clan's trap." Feng Yan pondered and then said seriously, "I suggest returning to Dark Shadow Clan and quitting this operation. If we have to pay with the loss of our force, I assume what we may obtain won't make up for our losses. It would be a big blow for us."

Zha Duo nodded immediately. "I agree."

Blood Devil, Bath, and Gu Te frowned, hesitating. At this moment, they didn't know what to do.

"It's not impossible to get over it." While they were still discussing, Shi Yan intervened, causing everybody to focus on him.

While frowning, Shi Yan closed his eyes in front of many people. A wave of magical energy fluctuation expanded from him quietly, extending towards the chaotic area of madly shooting stars.

After Shi Yan had generated his Ethereal Extent, his understanding of Star power Upanishad had advanced by one more step. He could vaguely create a contact with many kinds of star. The meteors were also stars, so Shi Yan used his Soul Consciousness as his eyes. He urged the Star power Upanishad, with his Sea of Consciousness surging. As a result, a dazzling, beautiful picture appeared in his soul.

It was the dangerous, ever-changing area in front of them.

Each of the ever-shifting flaming meteors with the terrifying explosive energy seemed to be reflected in his mind. Their trajectories that ordinary people could never know now had a wisp of Shi Yan's Soul Consciousness, which helped him understand the exact moving pattern of each meteor. 

He concentrated, understanding them in silence. He stood still while having a good grasp of the flying rules of more than one thousand meteors.

Everybody watched him, not disturbing him with even a single word. They all had a miraculous feeling that they could trust Shi Yan. He was the one with the wonderful abilities to overturn this situation!

They could vaguely recognize that Shi Yan could use his Soul Consciousness to contact those meteors. With this thought, they knew that the ones who could lead them through that matrix of perilous meteors weren't the four Incipient God Realm experts. Rather, it would be Shi Yan.

This feeling was hard to describe with words. But, it was there in their hearts. They all looked at him with hope.

After a long time, Shi Yan took in a deep breath, his eyes as bright as diamonds. He smiled, "We will hover for now. Then, we will move forward in my direction. That's how we can get through that area without any harm. I've scattered my Soul Consciousness, sending wisps to each shooting star. I know their flying trajectories."

Everybody had their eyes brightening.
