A dazzling light bloomed like a sun, extending endlessly and quickly enveloping the entire abyss.
Wherever the light passed, the darkness dissipated and everything was as bright as day.
At this moment, it could no longer be called the Dark Abyss, but the Light Abyss!
Long Zhen :”…”
Although he had always known that Qin Jue was very powerful, only now did he realize that he had still far underestimated Qin Jue.
“Where is this Hell World?” Qin Jue looked around and asked.
“Uh… Wait, let me try to find it.”
Long Zhen had already learned from the tentacle monster that the reason why he was unable to discover the Hell World before was because there was a powerful expert from the Hell World who had covered the entrance. Moreover, the higher one’s level was, the harder it would be for him to pass through.
This was also why Long Zhen was fine when he went down, but the other cultivators disappeared for no reason.
The entrance allowed creatures from the Hell World to pass through, but not the other way around. After all, the experts there did not know the strength of the Spirit Central World and naturally had to be careful just in case.
In fact, with Long Zhen’s cultivation, if he wasn’t in a hurry to find his son, he wouldn’t have been so easily deceived. Perhaps even he didn’t realize this.
But this time, Long Zhen would not fail again.
Not long after, Long Zhen arrived at a seemingly ordinary space. Then, he stretched out his palms and pulled forcefully!
Intense spatial fluctuations spread out, and a crack was forcefully torn open by Long Zhen, forming visible energy ripples that were sufficient to kill cultivators below the Saint Stage.
The moment the spatial entrance opened, dense dark spirit qi immediately spread out crazily, as if it wanted to swallow everything.
However, under the illumination of the light, the dark spirit qi immediately sizzled and melted like ice, quickly disappearing.
“This dark spirit qi is too strange.”
Long Zhen frowned deeply.
Even with his cultivation, he could still sense the obvious effects. If he entered the Hell World, the effects would definitely be even greater.
“I see. Then let’s light up the entire Hell World.”
Qin Jue said indifferently.
Long Zhen :”…”
Qin Jue made it sound like it was an easy thing to do.
“No need. I’m just going in to find my son.”
Long Zhen shook his head with a bitter smile, thinking that Qin Jue was joking.
Using spirit energy to illuminate the entire Hell World was simply unbelievable.
Hearing this, Qin Jue shrugged his shoulders.
After all, just as Long Zhen had said, he was only going to find his son. There was no need for him to treat the entire Hell World as an enemy.
After passing through the spatial passageway, the world fell into darkness again, and they couldn’t see anything. Before the two of them could move, an angry shout suddenly sounded from ahead. “Stop, who are you?”
Long Zhen was stunned. Only then did he remember that the Hell World had arranged many experts to guard the surroundings of the abyss. It was impossible for them not to notice the huge commotion just now.
However… Why did the other party speak the same language as them?
Indeed, after learning the lingua franca, one wouldn’t be afraid even if they traveled the world!
“It seems to be a living being from the other side.”
Another voice sounded with killing intent.
“The higher-ups have instructed us to kill all living beings that come from the other side!”
As soon as he finished speaking, more than a dozen figures instantly surrounded Qin Jue and Long Zhen. Each of them had reached the Legendary Stage and had a vast aura that soared into the sky.
“Are these the living beings of the Hell World? They’re so ugly.”
Qin Jue curled his lips in disdain.
These living beings from the Hell World were just like the ghosts and monsters from Hell. All of them had sinister expressions and were extremely ugly. It was difficult to imagine that they were Legendary Stage experts.
“You’re courting death!” The projection said as Qin Jue grabbed his head.
The dozen or so experts of the Hell World looked at each other in incomparable anger and immediately rushed towards Qin Jue.
“Brother Qin, remember to leave one alive.”
Long Zhen reminded.
“Oh, got it.”
Qin Jue nodded slightly and raised a finger.
Their field of vision widened as a golden light lit up and disappeared in an instant.
When the golden light was extinguished, there was only one expert from the Hell World left in front of Qin Jue. He looked around in confusion, as if he didn’t understand what was going on.
Long Zhen didn’t care about that. He directly used a soul search on this expert from the Hell World to search for Long Aotian’s memories.
After a long while, Long Zhen threw away the Hell World expert in disappointment and sighed. “This fellow just started work yesterday and doesn’t know anything.”
Qin Jue :”…”
“Looks like we will have to do more searching.”
After eliminating the experts from the Hell World who were responsible for guarding the abyss, the two of them quickly left. The abyss that connected the two worlds also regained its calm.
Although Long Aotian had already been in this world for several days, he had prepared a large number of medicinal pills he refined himself in his storage ring, so he didn’t have to worry about his spirit energy drying up.
As long as they didn’t encounter a Grand Saint Stage expert, there shouldn’t be any problems.
In fact, that was indeed the case. Apart from being slightly weak, Long Aotian’s spirit energy did not show any signs of being extinguished. At least, his safety was temporarily guaranteed.
After the two of them circled around the area, they realized that there was really no light in this world. Everything was black.
This applied to buildings, clothing, and weapons. In short, this was a colorless world.
Furthermore, the surrounding dark spirit qi was like maggots in one’s bones, constantly corroding their spirit energy.
If it was a cultivator below the Supreme Stage, they would probably have their spirit energy exhausted in less than a day and become meat on the chopping block.
Fortunately, the Immortal Divine Scripture that Long Zhen cultivated was very powerful. Although the environment here had an effect on him, that effect was very limited.
In fact, over time, Long Zhen could even absorb the dark spirit qi and transform it into another kind of energy, causing the light and darkness of the spirit energy to intersect and the Yin and Yang to connect, allowing him to rise to a higher level.
This made Long Zhen wild with joy, because he seemed to have seen hope of advancing to the fifth realm of the Great Void Stage.
As for Qin Jue, his body had already stepped into the realm of invulnerability and indestructibility. No attack could harm him, so what was this bit of dark spirit qi?
Unknowingly, the two of them had already spent two days in the Hell World. They had searched an area with a radius of 500,000 kilometers, but they had yet to find Long Aotian.
“Damn it. If this continues, I don’t know when we’ll be able to find him.”
Long Zhen gritted his teeth. The more time passed, the more dangerous Long Aotian would be. This was definitely not the outcome Long Aotian wanted to see.
“Actually, I have an idea.”
Qin Jue looked up and took a sip of wine.
“What idea?” Long Zhen hurriedly asked.
“Have you ever thought that maybe he was already captured by a high-level expert of this world?”
Long Zhen was stunned and somewhat at a loss.
“With Long Aotian’s cultivation, if he discovers that something is wrong with this world, he definitely won’t leave the abyss too far. Those dozen or so Legendary Stage guards also wouldn’t have been able to stop him.”
Qin Jue faintly said, “So the answer is obvious. He was captured long ago.”
After hearing Qin Jue’s analysis, Long Zhen suddenly understood.
Indeed, the cultivators of the Spirit Central World could not come over, but the living beings here could leave if they wanted to. Long Aotian probably only stayed behind because he was captured and could not leave. That was why he could not be found even within a million kilometers.
“Then what should we do next?”
“The answer is simple. We’ll fight our way to him.”
