Su Yu slightly raised his brows, revealing his skepticism.

“Why do you think the Ghost Clan attacked him?” the Ghost Clan’s patriarch asked.

Su Yu clearly remembered that when Ling Xiaotian was attacked by them, he was saved by the King of Darkness. This was how he had been able to become the Empire of Darkness’ Deputy Palace Master later on. As for why he was attacked, and by whom, he didn’t have any idea.

“It was because of his bloodline, as it wasn’t an Evil Ghost’s bloodline,” said the Ghost Clan’s patriarch in a deep voice.

The Ghost King, who was beside them, was surprised by his words, “Was that really the case?”

When he heard his words, the Ghost Clan’s patriarch respectfully replied, “Ancestor, there was someone with a variant bloodline who once appeared in our clan, and he was quite dangerous. Once, he unintentionally sucked the blood and flesh from several of our clansmen. He even raped some of our clanswomen. In the end, we gave him the death penalty for his dastardly deeds!”

The Ghost King slightly furrowed his brows. “A variant bloodline?”

“Yes, Ling Xiaotian’s blood contained a strong evil nature, which made him unreasonable and outrageous. As such, we had to take drastic measures. I hope that you can forgive us, as we didn’t intentionally kill one of our clansmen, but we were forced to do it,” the Ghost Clan patriarch replied.

“It had an evil nature?” The Ghost King became somewhat grave. “Em, that’s truly somewhat unusual.”

He then turned to Su Yu and said, “There is another bloodline within your blood. It has an intensely evil will…”

“Ancestor, how should we deal with this lad?” The Ghost Clan’s patriarch took a deep look at Su Yu, complex emotions appearing in his eyes. “This lad’s bloodline originated from our Ghost race, yet it’s greater than us. As it’s still an unknown bloodline, we shouldn’t let it spread!”

Su Yu became somewhat wary when he heard this, as he couldn’t really be considered a close confidante of the Ghost King, especially since their agreement had come to an end. The Ghost King squinted his eyes and got lost in his thoughts, hesitation soon appearing on his face.

Su Yu had many magical treasures that the Ghost King coveted, among which were many semi-manufactured spiritual artifacts. The Ghost King was thinking that if he killed him, then he would have a great harvest!

However, after he pondered this for a while, the Ghost King’s gaze became calm once again. He then said, “Let’s drop this matter for now. Since his bloodline isn’t that of any Evil Ghosts, then he has no relationship with us.”

After all, he didn’t really have a reason for killing Su Yu. Moreover, Su Yu’s strength was unusually powerful, and since he would shortly return to the Jiuzhou Continent, he didn’t want any unexpected trouble to occur before his departure.

The Ghost Clan’s patriarch was somewhat unwilling to accept such a decision. “Ancestor, with our power as Fairy Realm experts, we might be able to capture this lad if we joined forces.”

His words were true. If the two of them teamed up, it would be difficult for Su Yu to deal with them, even if he exposed and used his Dry Cloud Five Elemental Formation.

“I have already come to a decision.” The Ghost King softly snorted, while secretly transmitting his voice to the Ghost Clan’s patriarch, asking, “Do you think I would give up on it if we had even a fifty percent chance of succeeding? This lad still has my Eternal Stone King Armor!”

The Ghost Clan’s patriarch was astonished, so he transmitted back. “What? Ancestor, you think there isn’t even a fifty percent chance of defeating him?”

Wariness appeared on the Ghost King’s face. “I would maybe have a fifty percent chance if you helped me, but if I fought him alone,I may not have even a thirty percent chance. As such, there is a great chance that I may die at his hands.”

The Ghost Clan’s patriarch hadn’t personally witnessed Su Yu fighting, so it was only after he heard the Ghost King’s words that he became aware of the true situation. As the Ghost Clan patriarch looked at Su Yu, his gaze became filled with a faint wariness.

“I already fulfilled my promise, so we will bid farewell to each other here.” The Ghost King took a yellow scroll and threw it in the air. The scroll immediately ignited into flames and was burned into ashes.

The scroll was a Heart Oath Scroll, and Su Yu and the Ghost King had made an oath by using it. Now that they had successfully fulfilled that oath, it had burned itself into nothingness.

Su Yu felt somewhat relaxed now, as if he had just been liberated from tight bindings. He instantly felt his whole body became more light and at ease.

The Ghost King cupped his fists at him, and left. On his way out, he meaningfully said, “I advise you to use your variant bloodline only on rare occasions, as according to what I detected, the evil will that it contains is probably not something that you can control. Hence, each time you use it, it will become even more powerful, and in the end, it may even possess your body and control it. At that time, you will turn into a puppet of the evil will!”

Su Yu’s heart shuddered when he heard this warning. If even the Ghost King was extremely wary of such an evil will, Su Yu’s resistance to it would be even lower than his!

“Thanks for the warning,” Su Yu said.

The Ghost King nodded at him, then put the Ghost Clan’s patriarch into the space in his belly, preparing to fly off in the air. Before he left, he said, “Let’s go our separate ways here. You should leave quickly, as the isolation formation around this place is already broken, so the Silver Puppet will have already detected this place’s fluctuations.”

The Ghost King paused for a while, before he revealed a meaningful look and said, “Moreover, you should quickly leave the entire Zhenlong Continent, as you may find yourself in many unexpected situations if you tarry.”

Su Yu was confused by such bewildering advice, but when he took another look at the Ghost Clan’s patriarch, he found that he also wore a solemn look. So, after the Ghost King flew away, Su Yu immediately flew away as well.

The Ghost King went toward the east, while Su Yu went toward the west. However, right as they flew out, the sky suddenly darkened and the Divine Pavillion became gloomy.

Whistle! Whistle!

A sudden pressure caused the air to start whistling, and the black sky above them unexpectedly crumbled down all around them. As the sky crumbled down, countless clouds filled it. At the same time, a tyrannical pressure caused the nearby ruins to be crushed and turned into a fine dust.

The Ghost King and Su Yu, who were already flying in the air, also suffered the brunt of the extremely powerful pressure, which caused them both to fall from the sky. As they were utterly incapable of resisting the pressure, Su Yu’s expression gravely changed.

As Su Yu fell, a multi-colored glow flickered around him. It was the Dry Cloud Five Elemental Formation, which had appeared and surrounded him, protecting him.

Bang!

As the Dry Cloud Five Elemental Formation collided against the ground, it left a deep crater in the earth. As soon as it landed, Its multi-colored luster dimmed. Blood could be seen seeping out of the corners of Su Yu’s mouth, and it seemed like he had suffered a heavy injury.

When he looked at the Ghost King, he found that his current state wasn’t any better than his, and even though he had a valiant fleshy body, blood still seeped out of the corners of his mouth, as he had also fallen fast and hard while being oppressed by the great pressure.

They both turned to quickly run away from the pressure, trying to escape the radius of the dark and gloomy region entirely. However, before they even took a single step, a black fog rose up from the ground. The fog was vast and thick, and it covered all of the ruins, earth, and sky.

Thump!

An intense vibration was transmitted from the deepest part of the earth, and it rang clearly in their ears. The sound seemed like it was someone’s heartbeat, and its frequency was gradually becoming higher and swifter, as if something was awakening.

Thump! Thump! Thump!

Soon, the heartbeat sound was ceaselessly throbbing. The black fog started throbbing along with it, and it was also shaking. Moreover, Su Yu noticed that even his own heart had now started intensely beating.

A terrifying and frightening aura seeped out of the deepest part of the ground at this time. The aura was cold, apathetic, cruel, devilish and filled with bloodlust.

“It’s a demon! That’s impossible! He should have already died! Why is he still alive?” Fear and terror appeared on the Ghost King’s face.

As he was a ghost, he was extremely wary of demons. In fact, he was absolutely terrified of them!

“Let’s flee!” Panic and terror filled the Ghost King’s face.

Su Yu instantly reacted, swiftly retreating back, expression becoming solemn.

Sizzle!

Su Yu suddenly heard a noise behind him, so he turned his head to look. He saw that the churning black fog was quickly condensing together, then gradually taking a humanoid shape. It had taken the soul old man’s form!

However, what was different from before was that this current form of the soul old man was covered with blacks scales! The scales seemed like they had a life of their own, as it seemed like they were breathing.

He watched them unceasingly swelling and contracting. Such a sight was truly frightening!

Also, the soul old man’s eyes didn’t seem like they belonged to a human. Instead, they were a deep and devilish purple color.

As his body gradually took form, an aura that made the whole Mysterious Heavenly Divine Pavilion shudder started to emanate out from him. At the same time, spatial fluctuations appeared around him and engulfed him.

The soul old man then raised his head and shot a black light beam into the air. The light beam’s might was extremely terrifying.

The spatial fluctuations that had just appeared around him were instantly scattered by the light beam before it continued on, penetrated the sky dome, and bombarded the Mysterious Heavenly Divine Pavilion’s summit.

Bang!

A deafening and thunderous explosion resounded in the sky as a great and large opening was torn open. The aura of the outside world seeped in from the opening, then madly surged further into it.

Such an aura was different from the Zhenlong Continent’s and the Mysterious Heavenly Divine Pavilion’s. It was the aura of the Jiuzhou Continent!
