Chapter 1497: The Possessed Chaos Gems
Translator: CKtalon Editor: CKtalon
Yi Yun and Primordial Chaos Daolord continued their high speed chase amid the cosmos, with Primordial Chaos Daolord pursuing his target with overwhelming killing intent.
Suddenly, another gray beam of light flew past them.
Yi Yun and Primordial Chaos Daolord discovered the gray beam of light simultaneously.
Another Chaos Gem!
Primordial Chaos Daolord's eyes lit up. This Chaos Gem was bigger than the one Yi Yun had snatched from his hand!
He immediately took action, casting a spatial seal to grab the Chaos Gem.
But at that moment, Yi Yun also took action. He released his Primordial Chaos space and sent it towards the Chaos Gem.
Primordial Chaos Daolord scoffed coldly. He had been caught unawares previously, but now that he was first to take action, how could he possibly allow Yi Yun to snatch this prize away from him?
In fact, Primordial Chaos Daolord's judgment was not wrong. He had taken action faster than Yi Yun, and his cultivation level was higher than Yi Yun's. The Chaos Gem was already enveloped within his space seal, so it should have been within his grasps almost immediately.
Once the Chaos Gem was in his hand, Yi Yun would have to be sick of living if he dared to turn around to snatch it from him.
However, Primordial Chaos Daolord never imagined that, at the instant the Chaos Gem was being enveloped by his seal, giving it nowhere to fly to, it would suddenly whoosh towards Yi Yun!
"What!?" Primordial Chaos Daolord watched helplessly as the Chaos Gem landed in Yi Yun's hand. He nearly spewed a mouthful of blood from anger.
Primordial Chaos Daolord reigned supreme in the Sinkhole and was very knowledgeable, but he could not understand what had just happened.
This was the third time Yi Yun was snatching something away from him. The first time was done behind his back, the second time was the result of a sneak attack, but this third time was most ridiculous. The treasure had escaped him of its own accord and chose Yi Yun!
And after Yi Yun snatched the Chaos Gem, he immediately continued fleeing at full speed without even turning his head. He could imagine the look on Primordial Chaos Daolord's face without needing to turn back.
In truth, even Yi Yun did not expect the Chaos Gem to automatically choose him.
The phenomenon had to be because of the Chaos Gems that Yi Yun had originally obtained. These Chaos Gems were connected to each other, and they could spread information among themselves. The second Chaos Gem could be said to have been summoned by the first Chaos Gem. This was something that would ultimately elude Primordial Chaos Daolord.
In addition, Yi Yun was filled with benevolence, so the Chaos Gem had chosen him on its own accord when it had nowhere to escape to.
Furthermore, it also seemed to prove that Yi Yun's guess was right. When the Chaos Gem entered Yi Yun's hand, it automatically released its energy for Yi Yun to absorb.
In the subsequent days, Yi Yun continued fleeing while absorbing the Chaos Gems. As for Primordial Chaos Daolord, he chased closely behind him.
Yi Yun did not dare release the Chaos Gems whose energies he had partially absorbed. They would only be snatched by Primordial Chaos Daolord, and the outcome of that was obvious. Yi Yun temporarily placed them inside the Ascending Dragon Cauldron which was the safest choice.
With the passage of time, Primordial Chaos Daolord nearly went mad.
What the heck was going on!?
In the beginning, he was vying with Yi Yun for the Chaos Gems, and the Chaos Gem had chosen Yi Yun when it had nowhere to escape to.
But towards the end, these Chaos Gems appeared possessed. They would crazily fling themselves at Yi Yun without him needing to even make a move.
He kept following behind Yi Yun, and in the areas that they had yet to fly to, the Chaos Gems were being wiped clean by Yi Yun!
It was only five days later that Primordial Chaos Daolord was finally able to obtain his first Chaos Gem after deploying every mean possible.
The Chaos Gem was smaller than a sesame seed, about the size of a needle hole. If it wasn't because the Chaos Gem was too weak and slow in its escape, Primordial Chaos Daolord could have forgotten about snatching it.
Primordial Chaos Daolord clutched the Chaos Gem and, although he had finally obtained one, he still felt like gnashing his teeth.
Since he encountered the Primordial Chaos cyclone, he had seen ten Chaos Gems, but he, the mighty Primordial Chaos Daolord, famous throughout the Sinkhole for his Primordial Chaos laws, had only obtained the smallest Chaos Gem of the lowest grade. The other nine had landed in Yi Yun's hands!
After Primordial Chaos Daolord held the Chaos Gem in his hand, he did not hesitate to begin absorbing it immediately. After all his years of preparation and accumulation, he was nearing a breakthrough. As long as his Primordial Chaos laws became more profound, his speed would definitely increase greatly. He would then naturally be able to chase up to Yi Yun.
No matter how many Chaos Gems Yi Yun obtained, they would eventually be for nothing. Even his life would be gone. The Chaos Gems that Yi Yun obtained would only serve to benefit him.
But gradually, Primordial Chaos Daolord realized that the gap between him and Yi Yun was slowly widening.
Yi Yun was using the Primordial Chaos space as a boat, rowing through the primeval Universe. It was already less draining for him, and he constantly had Chaos Gems to replenish his energy. Not only was he not slowing down, he was accelerating!
Primordial Chaos Daolord finally realized that, as he neared a breakthrough, Yi Yun had probably also broken through!
The rate at which Yi Yun's strength increased was far greater than his!
Although Primordial Chaos Daolord had rich accumulations, his age and cultivation level made his absorption of the Chaos Gem less effective than Yi Yun's.
Furthermore, unbeknownst to Primordial Chaos Daolord, Yi Yun had not fully absorbed the Chaos Gems. Instead, they were providing the energies to him of their own accord. As such the boons and banes each of them experienced was stark.
Although Yi Yun's strength was inferior to Primordial Chaos Daolord's, he had absorbed a lot more Chaos Gems than Primordial Chaos Daolord during the pursuit. His cultivation, grasp of the Primordial Chaos laws, and insight into the Heaven and Earth laws were constantly increasing.
Every time he expended some of his energy, the Chaos Gems would provide him with the purest and most essential Primordial Chaos forces to replenish his stores. Yi Yun's dantian was becoming wider as he was becoming stronger and stronger.
After a few more days of chasing, Primordial Chaos Daolord nearly had a mental breakdown as he saw the gap between them turn wider and wider.
Despite constantly pursuing Yi Yun, he had failed to catch up. He could also only watch helplessly as Yi Yun reaped numerous benefits, and because he could only follow Yi Yun, he did not receive any benefits. Ever since he obtained the needle hole-sized Chaos Gem, he had gotten nothing!
He absolutely could not let this continue!
He had already wasted a month following Yi Yun. This cosmic space was filled with Primordial Chaos laws and Chaos Gems. It likely hid even greater opportunities. He wished to probe them, and not let Yi Yun lead him by the nose.
If he found a greater opportunity and had a breakthrough in cultivation level, chasing Yi Yun would become much easier. After all, he had sealed off the entrance to the cosmic world. Yi Yun would not be able to escape in a short period of time.
Upon coming to this thought, he steeled his heart to stop wasting time with Yi Yun. He sinisterly looked at Yi Yun's back before turning to leave.
But after flying a short distance away, Primordial Chaos Daolord suddenly felt something amiss. He swept with his perception, and was immediately enraged.
That darn Yi Yun was following him!
"You are courting death!"
Primordial Chaos Daolord drew a long saber and cleaved at him!
But Yi Yun was long prepared. He could not parry the attack, so he immediately hid inside the Ascending Dragon Cauldron.
A loud boom reverberated as the Ascending Dragon Cauldron trembled. Primordial Chaos Daolord's saber flash exploded against the surface of the Ascending Dragon Cauldron, failing to damage it in any way.
At that moment, the cauldron's lid opened as Yi Yun took his sweet time to come out. He glanced at Primordial Chaos Daolord and said with a sneer, "Old man, weren't you chasing me? Why are you leaving now? Why don't you continue the chase!?"
