1101 Hand in Hand



Shang Ying Yue didn't believe Shi Yan.

Her father Shang Chen, the one who cultivated Fate power Upanishad, had traveled through many big star areas. He knew many secrets that other people would never know. From her father, she knew the peculiar condition of the ancient continent, which didn't allow the Soul Consciousness to sense. In this place, they could only use eyes to observe.

She didn't doubt what her father had told her. After she had arrived, she had confirmed the magical features of this area. She figured out that her Soul Consciousness and the soul energy would be restricted.

However, she still went there to check...

Shi Yan's performance was extraordinary. He could use earth and heaven energy of the ancient continent, which gave Shang Ying Yue a feeling that he had fused with this ancient continent. Shang Ying Yue was hesitant, indeed.

As Shi Yan had pointed the direction, Shang Ying Yue quietly moved towards it, using her secret treasure to hide her figure, aura, and even her life energy fluctuation. She moved invisibly towards that area.

---------------------------

A group of five warriors was moving fast but relaxedly through the swamp.

The five of them were at Third Sky of Ethereal God Realm and the group included four old men and one woman. The four old men wore the same uniform, which was a dark blue fighting costume with a badge that had thick bones weaved on their left shoulders. Apparently, the four of them belonged to one force.

The woman looked around twenty-seven or twenty-eight years old. She had beautiful, smiling eyes and she was wearing a thin, cedar yellow dress to cover her graceful body. It seemed like she didn't come from the same force as the other four.

A bony old man was the leader of the other four. His cheekbones rose high on his face and showed his malicious, ruthless contours. His snake eyes raked around the area as if he was searching for something.

He suddenly rose his hand to make a gesture.

The three men wearing the same uniform as him halted and observed gingerly. The graceful woman chuckled, but she also stopped. She pried, "Old Bai, the fight that we've detected stopped. Is it necessary to go there and check?"

Bai Hao looked to the area further ahead of them. He contemplated, his face dark. "We will go there to see. With our powers, we don't need to be afraid of anything." Pausing for a while, he said, "Mia, the Seven-colored Demonic Flower we just got is really precious... it's... good for me."

Mia, the only woman in this group, grinned and spoke indifferently, "It's good for me too."

Bai Hao arched his brows and nodded. "Then never mind. Just keep it carefully."

"I don't want to bother you with my issues," Mia smiled softly.

The five of them were talking while walking towards the bog where Shi Yan was hiding deep underground. Along the way, they were very cautious and watching everything abnormal around.


They didn't know there was someone watching them silently.

Of course, that was Shang Ying Yue.

Shang Ying Yue had used the secret treasure to hide her body and any vital signals. Her eyes gazed on Bai Hao. Her murderous aura arose as if she had a deep grudge against him.

Shang Ying Yue looked at that group of five for a while and then ran as if she was flying.

-------------------------

A burning soul emerged from the bog and sent Shang Ying Yue a soul message. "Did you see them?"

An electric beam flashed by a dry tree. Shang Ying Yue appeared. She gritted her teeth, her face icy cold. "I saw them. They are from the Bai family of Dry Bone Star Area and there was one woman I didn't know." Her eyelashes twitched. "So you can really detect people in this ancient continent?"

"Didn't you just confirm that?" Shi Yan's soul message was indifferent. "If we continue to fight, they will come here and follow the energy fluctuations. The five of them can kill the two of us."

"If you return the Hundred Kalpa Soul Thread to me, I'll leave quickly," said Shang Ying Yue persistently.

"Impossible!" Shi Yan was enraged. "If you want to court death, I'm not afraid to continue fighting you."

"You're hiding underground and using the Hundred Kalpa Soul Thread to refine your Ethereal Extent. As long as I reveal your location, the Bai family will come to kill you." Shang Ying Yue beamed a faint smile.

"Then we have nothing to discuss more," said Shi Yan impatiently.

"No, we can negotiate if you agree with me on one thing. Our previous resentment will be erased," said Shang Ying Yue all of a sudden.

"What is that?"

"Help me deal with those five. Use your supernatural sensibility to locate them. Help me kill them!" said Shang Ying Yue resentfully.

"Do you hold any grudge against them?"

"We have a grudge with the Bai family. The Bai family in Dry Bone Star Area is the archenemy of my mother's family. They killed my grandfather and grandmother!"

Shang Ying Yue's face was cold. "Fantasy Mist Star Area is adjacent to Dry Bone Star Area. We have battles year round. The Bai family is the overlord of Dry Bone Star Area. They have some dark business with the God Clan. They've been plotting against us for hundreds of years. My grandfather was killed in one of the Bai family's operations. We can't stand under the same sky as the Bai family!"

"Why has your father not destroyed that family yet?"

"The Bai family is domineering. It's famous for its intimidating presence in many star areas. It's not easy to deal with them, anyway."

"They're approaching. You should hide first. We will discuss this later."

Then, Shi Yan dropped their conversation. His co-soul sank into the ground and entered his soul altar.

Shang Ying Yue pondered for seconds. Her shadow faded and then disappeared into the void.

------------------------------

After a while, Bai Hao's team emerged.

Bai Hao frowned and assessed the area. He carefully checked the streaks and traces around the bog. He confirmed, "The competences of both sides aren't normal."

The three Ethereal God Realm experts of the Bai family came like a breeze. They stopped by Bai Hao and shook their heads, indicating that they didn't find anything special or anybody engaging in a fight.

"Oh, this trip was in vain," said Mia with disappointment. "If I had known it earlier, I would have stayed and searched more in that exotic land. Perhaps we could have found another Seven-colored Demonic Flower. Ah, I shouldn't have gone here with you."

"There are no meaningless fights in the ancient continent." Bai Hao observed the murky puddle inside the bog and said coldly, "Once a battle takes place, it means one thing: two people found a precious material at the same time!"

Taking a deep breath, Bai Hao said, "Perhaps there's something precious not far from us. Also, the other two have found us and left earlier. Maybe they have left the precious treasure they had fought for behind."

The other three warriors of the Bai family had their eyes brighten.

Mia teased them. "The Soul Consciousness is restricted in this ancient continent. How could they detect us? Moreover, they were fighting. How could they have extra energy to observe around? ... I don't buy it. If you want to investigate, you do it. I don't want to waste my time with you guys."

Then, Mia left early and didn't bother to bat her eyes at Bai Hao's team.

After Mia had gone, one warrior of the Bai family asked in a cold and harsh voice. "Da-ge, who is that woman? Why do you have to treat her with care like that? Is it true that our Bai family has to be afraid of her? I think we should kill her to take the Seven-colored Demonic Flower!"

Bai Hao sighed begrudgingly. "Don't act rashly. We can't offend this woman at the moment. If it was that easy, I would have killed her already."

"Who is she after all? Why do we have to give her a Guiding Fruit while bringing and protecting her here? Who could scare our Bai family?" said the man angrily.

"Don't ask too much. What you should know, I will tell you. I won't tell you what you shouldn't know." Bai Hao frowned and scolded, "If you have extra energy, search around carefully to see if you can find any precious herbs or grass. We should take the chance when that woman isn't here to get it done. If we find anything, we can keep it."

"Sh*t, we found the Seven-colored Demonic Flower first and she claimed it. She pissed me off!"

"Control yourself! Before we've come to the ancient continent, I got the order to try our best to protect that woman. You guys have to watch over her!"

"Da-ge, who gave you that order?"

"The family's Head!"

". . ."

The three Ethereal God Realm experts of the Bai family shut their mouths. They stooped and felt dispirited as they had to accept their mission begrudgingly.

The four of them walked around and found no shadow or any good materials. Eventually, they had to leave reluctantly.

--------------------

Swoosh!

A swift current shot out of the bog. Shi Yan slowly emerged from that rapid current.

Taking a deep breath, Shi Yan felt refreshed. Divine light moved in his eyes. He flickered his mind and the three powers in his tier of power Upanishad flashed one after another. Within one breath, he had shifted his energy between three powers.

When he used the Hundred Kalpa Soul Thread to train his Ethereal Extent, many disasters happened to his Ethereal Extent with different natural powers. However, his three powers Upanishads had dissolved them all. Afterward, he knew more abilities of the three powers Upanishads, especially the Star power Upanishad. He vaguely felt that he had touched the door of the next breakthrough.

He must have a significant understanding of the Star, Death and Life, and Space power Upanishads to break to Second Sky of Ethereal God Realm. He had advanced his Star and Space powers Upanishad. Now he needed to focus on his Death and Life power Upanishad.

People with more than one powers Upanishad would find it hard to break through once they reached Ethereal God Realm. However, after each breakthrough, their powers and realms would advance even further. If he could master his powers Upanishads, he could use them to support each other. When that happened, his true power was going to be much more tremendous and powerful than the warriors with only one power Upanishad.

It was also the reason why it was hard to make further progress in cultivating different powers at the same time. They still tried to practice them. A warrior who had mastered more powers Upanishads was unquestionably stronger than ordinary warriors.

Shang Ying Yue's graceful figure suddenly appeared, her eyes still cold. She asked, "What's your plan?"

"I'll help you," Shi Yan smiled brightly, "but I have one condition."

"What's the condition?"

"I want the Seven-colored Demonic Flower that the woman keeps!" One of the reasons why he went to the ancient continent was to take this kind of strange flower, which could help rescue Yang Tian Emperor.

"Deal."
