Chapter 888: Primordial Space
Six hours had passed by the time Yi Yun had regained consciousness. He slowly opened his eyes and he saw a gray ceiling. Looking around, he realized he was lying in a stone chamber.
The stone chamber was extremely spartan. The surrounding black rock was cut into furniture which looked heavy and cold.
"Your ability at recovery exceeds my expectations for you wake up in six hours. Your physique might not be strong, but strangely, the energy from a relic that you consume is absorbed very fast by you. This allowed you to regain consciousness so fast. If not, you would truly have missed important events at the trials."
A cold-looking elder was also in the stone chamber. Yi Yun remembered this elder to be Elder Shi.
"Thank you, Senior."
Yi Yun was cognizant of the fact that it was all thanks to the Purple Crystal that he was able to absorb the energy so fast. Even in a state of unconsciousness, the Purple Crystal was still able to absorb energy and help his body recuperate.
Furthermore, the Purple Crystal's existence surpassed anyone's perception. Even with Yi Yun lying there motionless, Elder Shi's probing was to no avail. He could not understand why Yi Yun absorbed the energy at such a rapid pace, because there was no way for him to find the Purple Crystal.
The Purple Crystal was too amazing. Its existence was beyond Yi Yun's comprehension.
Elder Shi was indeed very curious. When he probed Yi Yun's body but failed to find the exact reason, he could only conclude that Yi Yun had a special bloodline that resulted in him absorbing energy at an extremely fast rate. After all, life was complicated. There was a myriad of bloodlines, so it was understandable that there were bloodlines he did not understand.
Yi Yun sat up from the stone bed and stretched his body. He realized that he had recovered most of his Yuan Qi. This made Yi Yun marvel at the amazing effects of the Purple Crystal. With a supreme-grade recuperation relic, the Purple Crystal could allow the relic's effects to reach its maximum effect.
"Senior, this junior wants to ask how were the results of the people who later entered the Fey Refining Rock?"
Yi Yun was already unconscious when he was expelled from the Fey Refining Rock array. He was eager to know how strong the Shadow Twins and Princess White Fox were.
Yi Yun's question was within Elder Shi's expectations. He said, "After you, the Shadow Twins also came out of the Fey Refining Rock array. The sisters had not only killed the first Ancient Fey, but they had also severely injured the second Ancient Fey. The Ancient Fey's energy expenditure reached about 50%. This was with the Shadow Twins holding back. If they were to fight as desperately as you did, this ratio would probably be higher."
"As for Wufeng... he was stronger by a bit. He managed to drain 70% of the second Ancient Fey's energy. Wufeng's combat strength is very outstanding. You can probably sense the thick bloodthirst aura from his body. He must have encountered several life and death fights."
"Finally, Princess White Fox. She was the only one who managed to kill the second Ancient Fey. Furthermore, against the third Ancient Fey, she had managed to hold on for a minute. She had even managed to injure the Ancient Fey." Elder Shi nonchalantly said this as Yi Yun drew a gasp.
He had given all he had to kill the first Ancient Fey as well as a stroke of luck. After killing the Ancient Fey, he had fell unconscious immediately and was expelled from the Fey Refining Rock array. He did not even encounter the second Ancient Fey.
As for Princess White Fox, not only did she kill the second Ancient Fey, but she had also injured the third Ancient Fey!
The difficulty of the Fey Refining Rock array had geometric growth as it progressed. How powerful was the third Ancient Fey supposed to be?
"What about the Luo clan?" Yi Yun hurriedly asked.
"For our Luo clan, Luo Mo was about similar to you. After killing the first Ancient Fey, he was already unable to fight the second Ancient Fey and he was expelled. As for Jian Zhu, his performance was the best. At least his results were much better than Wufeng’s, allowing him to defeat the Shadow Twins as well. So he did win back some face for the Luo clan."
"Thank you." Yi Yun clenched his fists subconsciously.
His path was still long. He had to charge, and race towards them step by step.
"From your eyes, you did not seem disheartened. Very well." Elder Shi nodded. "I'll be taking you to the Primordial Space. Everyone who managed to last five minutes on the first level or managed to injure the first Ancient Fey are allowed to enter the Primordial Space!"
As Elder Shi said this, he grasped Yi Yun's hand. With a nonchalant step forward, the surrounding space distorted.
Yi Yun felt dizzy as traversing through the chaotic laws of the Primordial Empyrean Heaven was taxing on his mental strength.
At the next moment, Yi Yun had already arrived at a gigantic cloister. This cloister was tall and wide that reached out a thousand feet. Even if a massive Ancient Fey was here, it could easily pass through it.
The cloister was built from unknown rocks and at the end, there was a rustic bronze door.
The door was as tall as the cloister and there were all sorts of glyphs of divine beasts carved onto the door. It was majestic and impressive.
Yi Yun and Elder Shi appeared like ants in front of the cloister. This feeling could not help but make Yi Yun curious about the things behind the door.
At this moment, Elder Shi had already put his hand out to press on the door. Following that, the thirty-foot-thick door that was of immeasurable weight was pushed open by Elder Shi.
Seeing the scenery behind the bronze door, Yi Yun's heart skipped a beat. Behind the door was empty space.
The space was permeated with a nebulous fog, and it was unknown how wide it was.
The magnificent cloister disappeared at to this point, as though it became part of the void.
The Luo clan disciples and White Fox clan disciples that had been selected had already been waiting in this space.
Yi Yun noticed that there were a few rustic rocks floating amidst the nebulous fog. They did not have any color to them and they were all gray. It was as though they had been abandoned at a particular corner of the world for billions of years.
Yi Yun could not help but probe the rocks with his mental energies. He discovered that these rocks were somewhat similar to the Fey Refining Rocks on the first level, but the aura that they emanated was completely different to the Fey Refining Rocks.
"Yi Yun, are you fine?" Seeing Yi Yun appear, Gu Qing was surprised as he immediately came up to him.
"You recovered so quickly?"
Everyone had seen the scene of Yi Yun being expelled. They were very aware of how injured he was. Even with the conditioning of a supreme-grade relic, it was difficult to recover so quickly. After all, the higher the relic's grade was, the more powerful its medicinal essences were. It made the absorption slower.
"You sure recovered pretty fast! It looks like your strength might be weak, but your ability to take a beating is rather good!" Nongyue said with a grin.
She was not being sarcastic with Yi Yun, but she was just outspoken. However, Nongyue's words sounded harsh on the ears.
Nongying stared at her younger sister. "Yue'er, don't be unreasonable."
Nongyue stuck her tongue out and no longer spoke. Yi Yun could not be bothered either as he said to Gu Qing, "It was nothing serious. Elder Shi had just mentioned Primordial Space to me. What's the matter with this place? What's so special about it?"
Gu Qing felt a hint of excitement when the Primordial Space was mentioned. He said, "Elder Duanmu had just mentioned that this Primordial Space is an ancient space left behind at the formation of the universe. It has existed for billions of years and our Luo clan happened to chance upon this space while exploring the Primordial Empyrean Heaven, so this place was stored.
"There are many mysteries to this space. Look at the nebulous fog. Elder Duanmu had just mentioned... that the nebulous fog is the most ancient gas of Chaos. What is even more fascinating are those rocks... They are Chaos Stones formed at the beginning of the Universe."
"These are Chaos Stones!?"
Yi Yun was alarmed. He obviously knew about Chaos Stones.
World Stones were used as currency in the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven. They were the crystallization of energy and laws at the birth of a world.
As for Chaos Stones, their value was several times higher than World Stones. They were the crystallization of the gasses of Chaos and Origins energy at the birth of the Universe. They even contained the most nomological Origins of the Universe.
The energy contained in World Stones allowed them to be used as currency. As for Chaos Stones, they were typically not sold as their value was immense. They could be used as one of the foundations of a mighty faction.
"Yi Yun, these Chaos Stones not only possess laws. From what Elder Duanmu said, these Chaos Stones are just like the Fey Refining Rocks. Sealed within them are auric charms of ancient Fey. However, it's no longer Ancient Fey soul essence, but… the true auras of Fey Gods!"
Gu Qing's words gave Yi Yun a fright.
The twelve ancient Fey Gods were the coagulation of the supreme laws. Back at Mt. Azure Billow, Yi Yun had seen the divine column and the carvings that the Luo clan constructed for the twelve Fey Gods. However, those divine columns were left behind by Luo clan ancestors after all.
The Luo clan ancestors might be strong, but they were considered weak when placed in the entire 12 Empyrean Heavens. Due to the limitations of their cultivation levels and nomological insights, the divine columns that they produced could not replicate the true laws of the Fey Gods.
Compared to the Chaos Stones that had the auras of the Fey Gods sealed within them, the divine columns could not even be compared as a night and day difference.
This was also the limitations of the Mt. Azure Billow Ancient Fey Edifice. However, in the Primordial Space, such a situation did not exist. This was the aura of the Fey Gods sealed in the Chaos Stones. It was true Origins laws!
"These Chaos Stones will be lent to us?"
Yi Yun was also excited. No wonder Gu Qing was so excited when he mentioned the Primordial Space's utility.
"I guess so… " Gu Qing was also eagerly anticipating it. Even with Gu Qing's background, this was the first time that he had seen a Chaos Stone!
"There are few Chaos Stones, far fewer than the number of us here. Although it can be lent to us, there should be a time restriction. It's unknown how the time will be allocated. Furthermore, we will need to share them with the White Fox clan... The White Fox clan... "
Upon saying this, Gu Qing gave the White Fox clan geniuses an unnerved glance. "Junior Brother Yi, you might not be aware that the White Fox clan is one of the most intelligent races with extremely high perception amongst the Fey race. Furthermore, those who awaken their Nine-tailed White Fox bloodline are extremely proficient in nomological insights. For example... the Shadow Twins are such a case."
The Shadow Twins had managed to use their feet to flatten the chaotic energy flows when they came to the Primordial Empyrean Heaven. It was evident how high their nomological perception was!
Gu Qing's words were heard by the sharp-eared Nongyue.
She looked over with a grin. She revealed a smile as though it was a show of might. "What you understand is pretty good, and you weren't wrong. I'm not good at killing, but when it comes to nomological insight, I like them the most!"
