Chapter 956: Gui Huazi
Streams of light quickly vanished outside the cruiser’s window, revealing a nebulous mist.
“This is the final spatial transference. The Oracle Fey Empire is in that nebulous region.” Elder Duanmu said as he looked out of the window.
Yi Yun nodded. He knew that the Oracle Fey Empire was located in an ancient self-standing space. And that space was in this region.
They had rushed from the Primordial Empyrean Heaven, spending a great deal of time travelling.
Before they left the Primordial Empyrean Heaven, they were informed about the event being held at the Oracle Fey Empire.
Luo Huo’er did not wish to compete for a spot as an in-name disciple of a Divine Lord, but there were a few warriors from the Luo clan that headed to the Oracle Fey Empire.
“We managed to get here in time… ” Elder Shi said. He was a reticent person and he did not speak much on the journey from the Primordial Empyrean Heaven.
Now, as he looked at the nebulous region outside, he reflected and said, “The last time I came to the Oracle Fey Empire was a few hundred thousand years ago. I wonder if there will be a chance for me to step foot on this land the next time… ”
Yi Yun was somewhat confused. Elder Duanmu said, “After he returns to the Primordial Empyrean Heaven this time, Elder Shi will be in reclusion to break through to become a Supremacy. Accompanying you out here is a way to tie things up. He is trying to adjust his mind.”
Yi Yun understood everything from hearing this. Elder Shi was entering reclusion till his death.
Elder Shi had been in reclusion in the Primordial Empyrean Heaven for hundreds of thousands of years in preparation for his breakthrough. Unfortunately, Elder Shi had failed to succeed.
“Senior Shi… is planning on entering reclusion to his death?”
Yi Yun was somewhat puzzled. He was about to break through to the Dao Manifestation realm soon, and after the Dao Manifestation realm, it was the Dao Palace realm. Above the Dao Palace realm was the realm of Supremacies.
Elder Duanmu and Elder Shi were both in the Dao Palace realm.
It sounded like they were only two realms away from Yi Yun, but the Dao Palace realm itself was highly disparate. Warriors at the same Dao Palace realm could not be compared with each other at all.
Warriors at the Dao Palace realm were not demarcated with a beginning, middle or late stage. Instead, they would establish a Dao palace in their bodies, with floors as their goals. The highest floor that a Dao palace could reach was nine floors.
If one had a nine-floor Dao palace, it was almost certain that they would become a Supremacy.
Warriors with eight-floor Dao palaces had lifespans that reached eight million years. According to such a lifespan, Elder Shi was not considered to be too old. Yi Yun felt that Elder Shi did not need to be in such a hurry to enter reclusion to his death.
At this moment, Elder Duanmu said, “Everyone’s limit is different. Some people might only be able to construct a single-floor Dao palace, but there are others who can construct a nine-floor Dao palace. I have yet to reach my peak, but Elder Shi has already reached it. He has stopped at an eight-floor Dao palace and he has not improved for hundreds of thousands of years. If it goes on, his strength will not only fail to improve, it would slowly go into a downtrend as a result of his age. And to break through to the realm of Supremacies, everything has to reach the peak and proceed with the available momentum. It is extremely difficult to break through to the realm of Supremacies with an eight-floor Dao palace. It is a struggle with one’s life. Upon failure, one would be reduced to dust. Therefore, there are some Dao Palace-realm warriors who know that by doing so means abandoning the path to go further, they would not dare to make the breakthrough.” Elder Duanmu explained.
On one side was a lifespan with eight to nine million years, while the other side was death upon failure.
If a man in the morning hears the right way, he may die in the evening without regret. It was too difficult to become a Supremacy. Yi Yun reflected upon this.
At the same time, Yi Yun looked at Elder Shi and he felt like sighing. This elder, who looked high and mighty to the younger generation of Luo clan disciples, was facing the hard choice of life and death.
On the path in pursuit of the peak of martial arts, he was equally tiny.
And this time, Supremacy Gulan was accompanying them as well. Although he had become a Supremacy, there was a large rift that separated him from a Divine Lord.
The entire Luo clan had not produced a Divine Lord in hundreds of millions of years. It was obvious how hard it was to become a Divine Lord.
As Yi Yun thought about this, a sense of grave danger suddenly enveloped him. It was like a dark shadow had been cast on his mind. Sweat inexplicably oozed out of Yi Yun’s back.
Yi Yun spread his perception out and he noticed that silently in the nebulous mist around his surroundings, a black hand had stretched out, grabbing at the spirit cruiser.
This large hand shuttled through the stars and it was even able to mask the luster of the starlight on the spirit cruiser.
Such terrifying power could instantly crush the spirit cruiser into pieces with a grab!
Yi Yun, who was inside the spirit cruiser, had already seen the large hand. The large hand gave him an overwhelming feeling that he could not resist.
A black hand had sealed the space around them, isolating them from the world around them. The isolated space seemed to be shattering. This grab would not only shatter the spirit cruiser, it would even cause the space to explode as well!
Not only Yi Yun himself, even Elder Duanmu and Elder Shi, who were beside Yi Yun, had a drastic change in expression. Even they could not withstand this strike!
At that moment, Yi Yun felt a strong sense of fatal danger!
At this point, the bow of the spirit cruiser was covered in a brilliance of light. Simultaneously, a figure flew out of the bow. He was dressed in azure-colored clothes and he held a broadsword. He slashed down at the large hand!
The hand quaked as it disintegrated partially in the void. But very soon, it returned to its normal state. Its fingers moved lightly, drawing out a symbol of a phantasm, sealing the space firmly!
The azure-clothed figure stood with the sword in his hand as his body exuded a terrifying aura. His brow wrinkled.
From the nebula came a sinister-sounding voice. “Gulan, it’s been a while.”
The sword-wielding figure was naturally Supremacy Gulan. To traverse the Primordial Empyrean Heaven, a Supremacy was needed to power the spirit cruiser. And since Yi Yun was coming to the Oracle Fey Empire, Supremacy Gulan had accompanied Yi Yun. After all, there was a fear of accidents for such a long journey.
And now, an accident had really happened. Gui Huazi was a Supremacy from the Fey Phantasm Sect!
Supremacy Gulan said with a cold voice, “Gui Huazi, as a Supremacy, you actually want to assassinate a junior? Are you only worth that much?”
Gui Huazi did not respond to Supremacy Gulan’s ridicule. The nebulous gasses stirred as the large black hand vanished. A gray and thin figure slowly emerged. He had six arms that hung softly from his body. His body was bent and he looked extremely weird.
His pupils were green as his eyes penetrated the spirit cruiser and his gaze landed directly on Yi Yun.
Yi Yun immediately felt like he had fallen into an ice cavern. The gaze was like a dark hole that would devour him.
“Not bad. Much better than those disciples from the Cloud Trail Empire. Eh, his mind is pretty strong as well? Very good. His soul shall be devoured by me. It would definitely be a delicious tonic!”
When Yi Yun heard Gui Huazi’s voice, it was echoing in his mind like a demon’s whisper.
He was someone from the Fey Phantasm Sect, here to assassinate him!
Previously, they had killed all the Cloud Trail Empire geniuses who were undertaking the trials. Now, he was being targeted!
A Supremacy of a faction would consider their reputation, and they would not attack juniors. However, Supremacies of the Fey Phantasm Sect would not consider this at all!
Gui Huazi may not be able to kill Supremacy Gulan, but if he wanted to kill Yi Yun, it would be much simpler. After all, it was much easier to kill than to protect!
