Chapter 0771: Emblem of Fire
Spirit cruisers were commonly seen in the 12 Empyrean Heavens. After all, not every warrior was proficient in spatial dimension laws or had the ability to do Void Transference.
If they needed to make long-distance space travel, they could only rely on spirit cruisers, using the arrays in the spirit cruiser to tear the void.
Yi Yun found it incredulous that he would encounter a spirit cruiser. He vaguely felt that he had stepped into the 12 Empyrean Heavens. The number of warriors in the 12 Empyrean Heavens numbered like the number of sand in the Ganges river, but when it came to the space around the 12 Empyrean Heavens, the number of spirit cruisers were extremely few in number. He found it hard to believe that he encountered a spirit cruiser as he reached the end of the rope.
And at this moment, the spirit cruiser had taken the initiative to fly towards Yi Yun. The spirit cruiser released an intangible energy that enveloped Yi Yun, slowly pulling Yi Yun towards itself...
At such a close distance, Yi Yun was able to see the spirit cruiser in its entirety. It was in the shape of a shuttle, and was light gray in color. In the middle of the spirit cruiser, there was a striking fiery red emblem. It was a burning flame.
This is probably the emblem of the faction that owns the spirit cruiser...
Yi Yun did not resist, allowing that energy to pull him towards the spirit cruiser.
In his present situation, resistance was futile. He did not know what sort of people were on the spirit cruiser, but he would take things one step at a time.
In the spirit cruiser, Heaven Earth Yuan Qi was a lot more richer and Yi Yun was isolated behind a light curtain. His mind was in a trance-like state, and he looked like he was in a coma.
But in fact, Yi Yun's perception was using the Purple Crystal's vision to pass through the light curtain, as he radiated it everywhere.
Vaguely, Yi Yun began to hear someone discussing about something.
Their language was different from the Tian Yuan world's, but it was quite similar to the language used by the Azure Yang Lord tens of millions of years ago.
Yi Yun had to use the fluctuations in their mental processes to barely understand the context of their conversation.
"Where did this young man come from?" A middle-aged man asked with a deep voice as he looked at Yi Yun who was bound by a light curtain.
"Just now, space around the Hundred Wraiths black hole tore apart, causing a small spatial storm. We came to investigate the situation and found this person. He was severely injured, so we saved him. It's unknown if he was injured by the spatial storm..."
Replying the middle-aged man was a girl dressed in purple clothes. Her voice was clear and pleasant to the ears.
The middle-aged man shook his head and said, "This young man's cultivation level is only at the Yuan Opening realm. If he were to be swept up into that sort of storm, he would have long been dead. You wouldn't even see his corpse, much less save him. He is probably a drifter in space. Maybe his spirit cruiser malfunctioned and was lucky enough to be saved by you. Also...Fengling, you are just too kind. It's best not to save strangers like these by bringing them onto the spirit cruiser. You have no idea what sort of person he is. Our mission is to patrol the Hundred Wraiths black hole. The spatial node it seals connects to a sealed world, a world that is one of routes of retreat for our Luo clan. It's especially important now, so remember our mission."
The middle-aged man glanced at the purple-dressed girl with a deep, meaningful look before he turned around and left.
"Sorry, I will be careful next time." The girl nodded. She took a glance at Yi Yun, and after confirming that he was still unconscious, she left.
Yi Yun was still immersed in white light. He felt empty-headed, and was slowly recovering his strength in his half-awakened state. He opened his eyes a few times and saw the warriors on the spirit cruiser. Many of them wore a flame mark on their right breasts.
The Luo clan and that purple-dressed girl...
Recalling the middle-aged man's words, he figured that the black hole he had encountered was probably called the Hundred Wraiths black hole, and it sealed a spatial node.
The middle-aged man even said that the spatial node connected to a sealed world.
Without a doubt, that 'sealed world' was the world where the Tian Yuan world resided. Due to the existence of the eternal whirlpool, that was indeed a sealed world.
Yi Yun had used a spatial node from the Tian Yuan world to travel to where he was. According to the Azure Yang Lord's memories, the world where the Tian Yuan world resided, was a vessel used to seal a Demon God. The number of spatial nodes connected to the 12 Empyrean Heavens were extremely few in number. There might only be one or two.
That was to say that by using this fixed spatial node to travel to the 12 Empyrean Heavens, it would always take him to a particular region in the 12 Empyrean Heavens.
And the Luo clan they were mentioning...
Yi Yun recalled this name, as he could not help but make some connections.
Tens of millions of years ago, the Tian Yuan world's seal was released because of the Azure Yang Lord. With that, one or two spatial nodes appeared, then naturally, people from the 12 Empyrean Heavens could use those spatial nodes to travel to the Tian Yuan world.
However, as there were very few spatial node, the number of 12 Empyrean Heavens warriors, who went to the Tian Yuan world, were extremely few in number.
And thinking back to the strange girl he met in the Tai Ah Divine City...
That Luo Huo'er, she couldn't be from the Luo clan, right?
However, upon careful thought, it did not seem like a coincidence. As there were only one or two spatial nodes, the spatial node linked two fixed spots, this region in the 12 Empyrean Heavens and the Tian Yuan World.
If this fixed exit was in the Luo clan, then it was not surprising that the Luo clan would use the hidden Tian Yuan world as a route of retreat.
Back then, when Yi Yun separated from the elvish girl, she had indeed said that she came to the Tian Yuan world to seek refuge.
In the Tai Ah Divine City, she was a mystery for she never displayed her true strength.
The Tai Ah Divine City had three rolls of honor, the Heaven, Earth and Man. She was only ranked first in personal wealth, on the Man roll of honor.
As for the Earth roll of honor which ranked people's battle rankings, as well as the Heaven ranking, which ranked the killing of desolate beasts, she had never appeared on them.
People guessed that Luo Huo'er had extraordinary strength, but she never showed it. She only brought a little maidservant named Dong'er with her, fooling around all day in the Tai Ah Divine City.
Although she looked as though she did nothing decent, the Tai Ah Divine City Elders treated her well, because of her mysterious and powerful background.
Her identity was a mystery, and even the Tai Ah Divine City City Lord did not know who she was. The person, who had introduced her into the Tai Ah Divine City, was extremely powerful and seemed like a big shot.
But now to think of it, this so-called "big shot" was probably a steward sent from the Luo clan to the Tian Yuan world.
It was very normal for a super clan, who used a hidden world as a form of retreat, to arrange for a steward to pave the way.
When the family clan was in trouble, and with their survival at stake, the family's children could hide in this small lower realm and remain incognito. As such, they would be naturally safe.
If their family clan was destroyed, then their family's descendants could still pass on their heritage. This was the role of the Tian Yuan world in the grand scheme of things.
When the Desolate race invaded the Tai Ah Divine City, the Luo clan did not do a thing. They chose to leave.
It was then when Yi Yun separated from Luo Huo'er.
The beast horde that Shepherd Boy led to invade the city would have been trivial for the Luo clan. If they acted, they could have destroyed all the desolate beasts, but they did not choose to do so. This was probably because they were facing enemies that were pursuing them.
By recklessly showing power from the 12 Empyrean Heavens, they would greatly increase the risk of being discovered by their enemies. Hence, the family clan had ordered for them to leave the Tai Ah Divine City while keeping a low profile.
