Shi Yan and Mei Ji continued to sink deeper.
“This light dome looks really vast. This ruin is really colossal. It’s so amazing.” Mei Ji frowned and observed the area beneath through her light cage. She turned to Shi Yan, “Do you feel better now?”
Shi Yan smiled, “The water pressure is so formidable. You’ve been in this Sea of Annihilation for many years. You must have gone down here severaltimes. Why didn’t you find this vestige?”
“I’ve explained it to you. The Sea of Annihilation can be as vast as an entire territory. I can’t endure the pressure at the deepest area. It’s true that I often move around undersea and I found some strange areas. But it’s the first time I saw such colossal ruins that are like this.” Mei Ji pulled herself together and glanced at Ling Mei. “I don’t get along with that woman. We have competed many times in this Sea of Annihilation. I hope you don’t establish any relationship with her.”
“What kind of relationship can I establish with her?” Shi Yan felt funny.
“You better not. Ling Mei is the expert in charge of the Sea of Annihilation of the Mysterious Sky Clan. We’ve been competing for a long time, but I can hardly defeat her. This time, I have to defeat her once!” Mei Ji was resolute. While talking, her milky breasts shook and made enchanting, seducing waves.
Shi Yan’s eyes became hot as he grinned. His line of sight fell on the cleavage between her breasts. “I’m some kind of key point in the battle between you guys?”
“Yes,” Mei Ji didn’t deny. She admitted naturally. “Since we were in Dragon Lizard Star, Tu Shi Qi and Ya Yun have tried to create a good relationship with you. I think they know you have Dark Energy too, right?”
Shi Yan nodded.
“I knew it. If you didn’t have Dark Energy, which ensures your breakthrough to the Territory Ancestor Realm later, how could they appreciate you that much? Ling Mei is the same. She expects to recruit you to be the Nonnative Officer of the Mysterious Sky Clan. That’s how they will try to get one more Territory Ancestor Realm expert.”
Mei Ji sighed sadly. “To the Seven Great Clans, competing for experts is crucial! And recruiting the Territory Ancestor Realm experts is the fiercest competition! A Territory Ancestor Realm expert can even change the general competence of one of the seven clans. My clan didn’t care about Batum’s bad reputation and they are willing to sacrifice me to recruit him. It’s because he’ll definitely enter the Territory Ancestor Realm.”
“Then why don’t you sacrifice yourself and marry Batum to increase your Phantom Clan’s competencies?” Shi Yan didn’t smile and looked at her nonchalantly. “You’re so dedicated to the Phantom Clan. For the clan’s welfare, it is logical for you to give yourself up to it, right?”
“You want me to marry Batum?” Mei Ji suddenly quieted down. After a long moment, she asked with a cold face.
“It has nothing to do with me. My feelings can’t affect you. I’m just curious,” Shi Yan said calmly. “You don’t want it. It’s obvious. Why don’t you dare to violate your clan’s rule?”
Mei Ji’s face was bitter. She shook her head and said in agony. “I can’t turn my back to my clan. Also, I don’t dare to lose my clan’s protection…”
“Why?” asked Shi Yan.
“What I got today is all because of my clan. My family is there. Also, I’ve done many things for my clan lately. I’ve killed many people. They want my life. As I’m with my clan, they don’t dare to attack me. If I leave the Phantom Clan, I can’t live in peace,” sighed Mei Ji.
“If Batum breaks through to the Territory Ancestor Realm fast, what will you do when he asks your clan to fulfill the promise?” asked Shi Yan.
“I don’t know. I really don’t know and I don’t dare to think too much about it.” Mei Ji’s charming face was filled with puzzlement. She herself didn’t have an answer.
Shi Yan didn’t ask further.
They had landed above the light curtain.
The light curtain was like an arch of a sky covering the ruins beneath and preventing the sea water from getting through. This light curtain had a lot of magical Absolute Beginning tadpole symbols, which were moving and wiggling as if they had a life and consciousness. The blood streaks scattered here and there on the light curtain. Shi Yan focused and found that he couldn’t see where the light curtain ended.
Five-colors waves rippled from the light curtain and expanded toward Shi Yan. He was a little shocked.
So many waves swarmed toward him and made him restless. He couldn’t help but get out of Mei Ji’s light protection. While Mei Ji was still frightened, he smiled comfortably as the water pressure seemed to vanish into thin air.
He quietly watched here and there.
Except for him, the others were all acting gingerly. They looked as if they were facing great enemies. Still, they hovered far away from those ripples.
Seeing the waves hit Shi Yan but still be comfortable, he even smiled and the others relaxed their tense nerves.
A man in black armor from the Mysterious Sky Clan standing by Ling Mei deliberately reached out and caught a coming, purple wave.
He screeched painfully!
Everybody looked at him in fear. They saw the flesh on his arm melt and leave only a piece of white bone. The light purple wave swarmed over and covered him entirely.
Shortly after, he was no longer breathing because he was now a white skeleton falling into the bright light curtain.
His frame became bone dust and blended with the sea water, washing away.
Ling Mei couldn’t help but scream ear-piercingly, “Move! All of you! Get away!”
Except for Shi Yan, the others didn’t need her to remind them. All retreated away as if they saw a ghost in daylight. They were all pale as they looked at those colorful waves. All of them looked aghast.
Now, only Shi Yan stood there inside the ripples. He didn’t even look a bit troubled.
Farlow, Telika, Ling Mei, Yerburgh, and Mei Ji stiffened. They looked at him as if they were watching a monster. Mei Ji was bewildered for a while and then said, “Shi Yan, why are you still okay?”
Shi Yan had seen the brutal accident happen to that member of the Mysterious Sky Clan. He knew why people were skeptical, but he didn’t explain. Grinning, he immediately plunged through the light curtain.
Magically, the light curtain seemed to make a slit for Shi Yan to go through.
On the light curtain, the waves rippled and expanded. Ling Mei and Mei Ji were so wary of them. They couldn’t help but retreat, trying to use their power Upanishad to break and prevent the terrible attack from the colorful waves.
“Mei Ji, you know him well. Do you know what he did to get through the danger?” Yerburgh screamed.
Mei Ji frowned. “I just asked but he didn’t answer. I’m like you guys. I don’t know anything.”
“What makes him different from the rest of us?” asked Farlow of the Black Demon Clan.
“I heard that this man has a wisp of the soul of an Absolute Beginning creature. It’s what I got,” Yerburgh initially told the others what he knew.
“He understands the powers of the Dark Energy,” hesitating for a while, Ling Mei told the piece of information she had. As everybody wanted to intrude the ruins beneath, they had to find a solution to deal with those ripples. Thus, Ling Mei didn’t want to conceal anything. She also wanted to find a solution.
Fused with a wisp of the Absolute Beginning creature’s soul? A warrior with Dark Energy?”
Farlow looked shocked. “He’s at just First Sky of Immortal Realm!”
“Mind-blowing, right?” Mei Ji parted her lips into a smile. “It’s true. When I found that out, I was shaken too. Anyway, there are more shocking things. He got Dark Energy when he was at Incipient God Realm, anyway. Have you ever heard about anyone at Incipient God Realm get Dark Energy?”
Listening to her, Ling Mei shivered. Finally, she knew why Tu Shi Qi had sent her such a strange message.
Tu Shi Qi had told her to try her best to recruit Shi Yan. Even if she couldn’t make Shi Yan the Nonnative Officer of the Mysterious Sky Clan, she had to be able to create a good relationship with him. She should not offend him and she should offer help whenever she could.
After receiving the news, Ling Mei was bewildered. She thought that Tu Shi Qi and his wife just made a fuss over something trivial. Today, she knew how Tu Shi Qi and his wife could stand tall and see far.
Mei Ji and the others were bound outside.
Under the light curtain, Shi Yan slowly descended. It was like he had gotten through a layer of clouds to enter a whole new world.
Everywhere in this world was a ruin. Even though they were ruins, they stood as tall and grand as a mountain. They were conical buildings made of an unknown stone material. Everything in his vision was the broken ancient buildings.
A strange energy wandered around his body and got into his Sea of Consciousness.
That energy came from the ripples. The reason why he wasn’t hurt was because those ripples were actually Dark Energy. As his body was tamed with Dark Energy, he could absorb it. Dark Energy was a sort of negative energy. It was very different from other kinds of common energy. However, Shi Yan’s body wasn’t affected.
He lifted his head to see Ling Mei, Mei Ji and the others fluttered as he grinned.
Concentrating, he released his co-soul and sensed the aura or something that was calling him. Shortly after, he got his direction. Shi Yan didn’t mind the others who were very astounded on the other side of the light curtain, heading toward an area. He was slow at first. Gradually, he accelerated.
Deep undersea, Audrey was heading toward the vestige. Innumerable souls covered her like a big black cloak.
“Why do you suddenly want to go deep undersea?” Ming Hong turned into a ghostly shadow and floated on her should. He was using power to make departed spirits and brutal souls cover her, saving her from the formidable water pressure.
“A voice is calling me constantly,” said Audrey.
“A voice?” Ming Hong was panicked.
“Perhaps it’s related to some Absolute Beginning creature,” Audrey didn’t conceal it. “You know, I’ve fused with the Origin of the God-blessed Mainland. Yeah, it’s like fusing with a part of Desolate.”
Ming Hong was excited when he heard Audrey said that. “It should be something mysterious from the Absolute Beginning era!”
“I think so,” Audrey chuckled.
Shortly after, Audrey had reached the light curtain with countless radiant ripples. With a strange light flaring in her eyes, she released her Soul Consciousness to check around.
Her Soul Consciousness melted when it touched the waves.
“What a powerful defense!” Ming Hong screamed in surprise.
All of a sudden, a voice call from afar. A silhouette dashed rapidly and reached Audrey in almost a blink of an eye.
Audrey and Mei Ji screamed in astonishment.
