At the bottom of the iron ship.
Disciples from the Yin Yang Wonderland came down and carried the wooden boxes to the deck, preparing to pass them over to the burial site.
The 32 wooden boxes, which were nailed shut, contained cold corpses.
In the wooden boxes, there were also cold heavy stones, thus disciples of the Yin Yang Wonderland needed to carry it in groups of two or three.
Shi Yan and Xia Xinyan walked out of the small room and headed to the deck, gloomy expressions on their faces.
On the deck, Shi Yan looked out, and found that the ship had stopped at an island, which was as big as a city, dull, and covered with odd plants.
Heavy corpse Qi meandered underneath the island. There were hundreds of burial sites on the island, each with a cave that led to the center of that site.
Some of those burial sites were as big as basketball courts, and some were like small rooms.
Long deep gullies ran between the burial sites, which were filled with odd materials, and filled with white smoke.
Hundreds of burial sites were connected by the gullies.
The island looked like a huge spider web, and the gullies were the spider silk.
Beside the burial sites and gullies were boundless gray plants, which were ghastly and depressing.
At the center of the island sat the biggest burial site, which stone towers with gloomy disciples of the Corpse Sect standing on top of them.
The disciples of the Corpse Sect were at Human, Disaster, and Earth Realms, and were walking from the stone towers to the burial sites in silence.
Disciples of the Corpse Sect were sent to the entrances of those burial sites, and some were carrying cold stones and poisonous insects. They were throwing odd materials into the gullies.
The whole island was covered in a ghastly atmosphere. Tombs, evil plants, and gloomy disciples of the Corpse Sect.
Those disciples of the Yin Yang Wonderland were busy carrying wooden boxes off the ship.
Dozens of Corpse Sect disciples opened those wooden boxes, one of them writing something down on a book, recording those corpses’ information.
The disciples of the Yin Yang Wonderland were cooperative, explaining to the disciples of the Corpse Sect about the corpses.
The female disciples of the Yin Yang Wonderland were quite careful as they arrived, and looked unnatural while talking to Corpse Sect disciples.
Li Zhuang and Ju Yueru, the priests of the Yin Yang Wonderland, had also disembarked from the ship. They were standing beside the boxes, and talking to a warrior from the Corpse Sect.
Shi Yan and Xia Xin Yan stood on the deck, wearing strange faces.
“Priest Ju had a good impression of you. She still wants you to be her disciple if you are ok with it.” Standing beside Shi Yan, Xiao Feng tried to persuade him, “Once you nod, I will tell Priest Ju, OK?”
Shi Yan frowned and took a glance at Ju Yueru who stood far away, and shook his head, “Sorry, I don’t want to join the Yin Yang Wonderland.”
Xiao Feng turned gloomy and she said coldly, “You will regret this!”
“Hey you two, get off the ship. What are you waiting for?” Li Wei had gotten off the ship, and he sneered, “We will stay here for one day, and no strangers can stay on the ship.”
Shi Yan frowned, glanced at Xia Xinyan and said, “Let’s get off.”
He had to obey them now.
Xia Xinyan was quite calm and, though filled with disgust, she got off the ship with Shi Yan.
Li Zhuang and Ju Yue Ru, the two priests of the Yin Yang Wonderland, kept looking at Shi Yan and Xia Xinyan while talking to the warrior of the Corpse Sect.
That long face warrior of the Corpse Sect also looked to Shi Yan and Xia Xinyan casually, seeming to come to a certain agreement with Li Zhuang and Ju Yue Ru.
The three discussed for a while and nodded, satisfied about something.
Before long, Li Zhuang said loudly, “We will rest here for three days, and then we will leave on our ship.”
“Priest Li, can we stay on the ship?” A female disciple pleaded miserably.
“No.” Li Zhuang grunted and stared at them coldly, “You have a long way to go. You can’t develop your Martial Arts if you are so timid. You have to steel yourselves. Tonight, the Corpse Sect disciples will take you to visit those corpse slaves. Seize the opportunity, it is rare for people from the Endless Sea have a chance to visit.”
Many disciples of the Yin Yang Wonderland were frightened, and their lips trembled.
Disciples of the Corpse Sect showed contempt in their eyes, and took out small rings from their waist and shook them.
Disciples of the Yin Yang Wonderland screamed again.
With the rings, corpses in white gowns appeared.
Those corpses seemed blind and clumsy as they walked in this direction.
“These are human corpses. They have not been refined for long, so their limbs are stiff. What are you afraid of?” One Corpse Sect disciple glanced coldly at those screaming disciples of the Yin Yang Wonderland, “Corpse slaves are our best friends. They won’t betray us.”
Those human corpses moved slowly and carried the wooden boxes to a burial site.
Under the moonlight, corpse slaves were wobbling with corpse Qi around them, pale and frightening.
Shi Yan frowned, watching the corpses being carried away by the Corpse Sect disciples.
“You two.” Li Zhuang pointed at Shi Yan and Xia Xinyan, “Go to the burial site as well.”
Li Zhuang never took Shi Yan and Xia Xinyan seriously. He continued to discuss with the Corpse Sect member.
Ju Yueru also glanced at Shi Yan and frowned slightly, then continued to talk with the Corpse Sect member.
They three were negotiating the price of the corpses.
Shi Yan stretched out to grab Xia Xinyan, and said in a low voice, “Let’s leave now, the further the better.”
“We can’t.” Xia Xinyan shook her head, “There are water corpses!”
“How do you know?”Shi Yan’s expression changed, as he looked around with his bright eyes.
“There are at least three burial sites refining water corpses, which can dive deep into the sea. We will be caught by them even if we leave now.” Xia Xinyan said softly.
“Then what should we do?”
“Let’s go the burial site first, then kill those water corpses and leave.”
Li Wei kept a distance from Shi Yan, but observed him carefully.
“You two, go. Let’s have a look at their refining skill. The Corpse Sect can not only refine dead bodies, but also live corpses. You know what is a live corpse? It means refining a living human to be a corpse. It’s very interesting, maybe you two will get to see it.”
Li Wei smiled cunningly.
Shi Yan’s expression changed, and he quickly understood Li Zhuang, and realized why Li Zhuang looked back to him while talking to that Corpse Sect disciple.
Li Zhuang had sold them to the Corpse Sect as material for refining live corpses.
Xia Xinyan’s eyes were cold, as she bit her lips and showed indignation.
“We can’t separate.” Shi Yan grabbed her hand tightly and said firmly, “We can find a chance, as long as we are alive!”
Hearing that, Xia Xinyan suddenly felt safe.
“Okay.” Xia Xinyan nodded softly. For the first time, she responded to Shi Yan’s hand, “Remember, live on.”
Shi Yan felt flattered as he said happily, “Don’t worry, we will survive.”
“If we can survive, I will forgive, forgive your rudeness, and go peacefully with you.” Xia Xinyan hesitated and said softly.
“We will definitely leave here alive!”
