“How could this be?”
Everyone was puzzled.
As the eight most powerful people in the Spirit Central World, when had they ever encountered such difficulty?
In the past, no matter what happened, as long as they made a move, the matter would usually be easily resolved.
But this time, they felt helpless.
“I’ll go down and take a look.”
After pondering for a moment, Long Zhen made a decision.
So far, only Long Zhen could return unscathed after going down. It wasn’t that the other seven Sacred Masters didn’t dare to go down, but they had their worries. If they were also devoured by the abyss, what would happen to the clans that relied on them?
In any case, Long Zhen had already gone down once and was the strongest among them. Now that he was taking the lead, naturally, no one would stop him.
“Sacred Master Long, be careful.”
Peerless Sacred Master cupped his fists with a grave expression.
“Sacred Master Long, be careful.”
Everyone chimed in.
Nodding, Long Zhen took a step forward and instantly disappeared into the abyss.
The so-called abyss was actually like a black hole. It was pitch-black inside, and nothing could be seen. All the living beings that entered would be devoured, and it was unknown if they were still alive.
This made Long Zhen think of a novel where the characters couldn’t go outside after dark. Could there be a terrifying existence hidden in this abyss that he had yet to discover?
After all, the last time he came in, Long Zhen flew for millions of kilometers but did not reach the bottom. It was as if there was no end to it.
Thinking of this, Long Zhen spread out its spirit sense and tried to find clues.
Even though this layer of darkness had the ability to isolate spirit sense, it was useless against Long Zhen. Soon, his spirit sense covered an area of 50,000 kilometers, not letting go of any corner. It even pierced through the void.
Unfortunately, he still did not discover anything.
Could it be that those existences hidden in the darkness sensed that he was too powerful and hid?
Strictly speaking, it was possible.
In that case, he would continue searching the abyss bit by bit!
After making up his mind, Long Zhen maintained the range of his spirit sense and went hundreds of thousands of kilometers deeper.
However, no matter how he searched, he found nothing. If this continued, he would waste a lot of time.
Fortunately, Long Zhen had taken a strand of spirit energy from Long Aotian when he left. As long as that strand of spirit energy was not extinguished, it meant that Long Aotian was still alive.
“Damn it, how could this be?”
Just as Long Zhen was feeling a headache, an extremely weak spirit energy fluctuation suddenly appeared beside him.
In the next moment, a pitch-black tentacle attacked and swept towards Long Zhen. Its power was enough to destroy a small mountain.
“Hahaha, I finally found you.”
Long Zhen smiled instead of getting angry. He turned around and grabbed the other party with his spirit energy hand. Then, spirit energy surged out in all directions and completely sealed the other party’s cultivation!
The owner of the tentacle clearly realized this and screamed in panic. Long Zhen didn’t care about that. He swept his spirit sense around again and after confirming that there was no other aura, he flew out of the abyss.
The octopus-like creature was fiercely thrown to the ground, attracting the astonished gazes of the seven Sacred Masters.
“What is this?”
Sacred Master Chi Qing was surprised.
“I don’t know. I caught it from the abyss. Because I can’t tell what it is, I wanted to bring it up for everyone to see.”
Long Zhen frowned slightly. Could it be that even these old monsters that had lived for more than ten thousand years didn’t know?
This monster had eight tentacles and was covered in barbs. It was about the size of a human, and its expression was sinister and terrifying. It did not look like a fiend beast nor did it look like it was from the Sea Clan of the Eastern Sea. It was simply inconceivable.
“I’ve never seen such a creature before.”
Sacred Master Tian Yuan smiled bitterly.
The other sacred masters shook their heads one after another.
“However, this thing seems to have reached the Legendary Stage.”
“If the creatures in the abyss are all so powerful, then it can be explained that those cultivators are unable to return after entering.”
Sacred Master Yao Li pondered.
If any random creature they captured from the abyss was already at the Legendary Stage, what about the stronger ones?
Saint Stage? Grand Saint Stage?
The tentacle monster roared continuously, trying to break free from Long Zhen’s spirit energy seal. However, even a Great Sage Stage expert couldn’t break free from Long Zhen, so how could a Legendary Stage expert creature succeed?
“Why don’t… I try soul searching?”
Peerless Sacred Master suggested.
At the moment, this was the most reliable method.
“Wait, I think I’ve seen this creature somewhere before!” Suddenly, the silent Pure Yang Sacred Master stepped forward and said.
In the entire Spirit Central World, the Pure Yang Sacred Master should be the cultivator who had lived the longest. He could be said to be a living fossil.
At this moment, when he said this, everyone revealed hopeful gazes.
Pure Yang Sacred Master did not say anything else. He took out a stone tablet from his storage ring and carefully observed the tentacle monster for a moment. His expression revealed more and more shock. “It’s really them! They’re here!”
Everyone was puzzled. They looked at the stone tablet and realized that there were a few blurry patterns carved on it. One of them was almost identical to the tentacle monster in front of them.
“Old Luo, what is this?”
Long Zhen couldn’t help but ask.
In fact, he had already imagined all the plots in his mind.
It could be that this creature was from a certain race and had been sealed by an ancient mighty figure a long time ago. Now that it had broken through the seal, it had made a comeback and planned on taking revenge on the Spirit Central World.
After all, he had encountered similar situations more than ten times before.
“This should be a creature from the Hell World!” Taking a deep breath, Pure Yang Sacred Master said with a trembling voice.
Everyone looked at each other, not understanding what was going on. Even Peerless Sacred Master, who was only younger than the Pure Yang Sacred Master in age, had never heard of the Hell World.
“Yes, I also only know because I read it from an ancient stone tablet when I was young.”
The Pure Yang Sacred Master deliberated his words and explained, “The Hell World is also known as the Eternal Night World. It is another side of the Spirit Central World. Legend has it that every hundred thousand years, these two worlds will overlap once.”
“In that world, there is no light, only darkness. The spirit qi cultivated there is also worlds apart from ours. When human cultivators go there, their spirit energy consumption will be ten times faster than anywhere else. Moreover, besides taking pills, there is no way to make up for the difference.”
At this point, the Pure Yang Sacred Master’s expression was slightly complicated. “Especially us cultivators who cultivate pure Yang energy. We will basically be reduced to trash there.”
It had to be known that the battle power of Saint Stage experts usually relied on their control over the energy of Heaven and Earth. The richer the pure Yang energy, the stronger the cultivator who cultivated pure Yang energy would be.
On the other hand, the thinner the pure Yang energy, the weaker he would become.
In a world without any pure Yang energy, cultivators who cultivated pure Yang energy were like an energy reservoir without any supply.
After the energy in this energy reservoir was used up, besides from having stronger bodies, they were almost no different from ordinary people and could not use any spirit energy.
“What if we make them come to our world?”
Long Zhen was curious. It seemed that this matter was not as simple as he thought.
“It’s the same. In this world, their strength is also greatly reduced, and their reduction would be even worse than ours.”
Pure Yang Sacred Master continued, “However, I only read about this on an ancient stone tablet. I’m not sure if it’s true.”
“But what is certain is that the hundred-thousand-year overlap period… has arrived.”
