It was noon and the sun was high in the sky.
An iron ship was moving, quickly passing through the sea. It was sailing directly towards the Hengluo Sea.
The Henluo Sea was in between them and the Kyara Sea. To get to the Kyara Sea, one must go through the Hengluo Sea.
The Hengluo Sea had countless islands. It was under the influence of the forces of the Three Gods Sect, the Dongfang family, and the Gu family. These three forces controlled nearly half the islands in the Hengluo Sea.
The iron ship sailed quickly under the blazing sun.
On the deck, Shi Yan’s face was calm. He gazed into the distance, basking in the fluttering ocean breeze.
With a green dress on, Xia Xinyan’s hair flew in the wind. Her face was back to normal, gorgeous as ever, as she stood shoulder to shoulder with him.
It had been three months.
Not only did Xia Xinyan’s martial spirit recover back to its original state, but, through the many challenges, she finally made further progress and stepped into the Earth realm.
Xia Xinyan in the Earth realm had the grace of a fairy. Her temperament was elegant and graceful. In her gestures, there was a stern and inviolable grandeur.
“Xinyan, in these past three months, you’ve improved quite a lot. It seems that, in order to catch up with you, I have a lot of work to do.” Shi Yan casually smiled, and turned around to look at the beautiful woman next to him, “You’ve once said that one day, if I can defeat you, you will…”
Xia Xinyan smiled enchantingly, like a blooming green lotus, indescribably elegant and beautiful. “Oh you, why are you always obsessed about this sort of things?”
In these three months, the two were together from morning till evening. They talked about anything and everything, and had been getting along well.
As always, Shi Yan was outspoken, and he often teased her about sexual things.
However, ever since they went through the hardships at the burial site, Xia Xinyan cut him a lot of slack. She didn’t mind his cocky words, and it was only when Shi Yan attempted a deviant act that she would actually quietly show her Earth realm capabilities, letting Shi Yan know to restrain himself.
“Do you want to deny it?” Shi Yan looked indignant, he pretended to be angry and said: “You’re the reason for my motivation and hard work. Without you, my cultivation would become dull and tedious.”
Xia Xinyan’s beautiful eyes glimmered, she casually smiled, “People like you don’t need a woman to urge you. Even without me, you’d still crazily torture yourself. Like you said, you are a masochist. Ha, masochist, I like that nickname.”
In these past three months, Shi Yan had endlessly cultivated the Second Sky of Rampage, trying to merge the negative energies into his blood.
These past three months were, for Shi Yan’s, a torturous three months!
Merging the negative energies into his blood was already extremely cruel on its own. Before he could get the hang it, Shi Yan’s cultivation was accompanied by piercing screams every time. Each time he cultivated, it was as painful as hell.
Whether it be day or night, Xia Xinyan was often woken by his screams.
In these three months, Xia Xinyan finally truly learned what methods Shi Yan had used in order to obtain the vigorous Profound Qi and the tough state of mind he had.
——By insanely torturing himself!
Unbelievably, Shi Yan was also bizarrely ruthless when treating himself. Every time he cultivated was like a journey into the depths of hell.
Shi Yan’s heavy cultivation thoroughly shocked her. It made Xia Xinyan realize that the accomplishments Shi Yan had obtained to this day were not for no reason. The hard work he did was unimaginable to anyone!
Only those who could be cruel to themselves would be able to do what he did and obtain massive powers in a short time.
“Believe it or not, I’ll screw you.” Shi Yan grinned, he chuckled grimly.
The corners of Xia Xinyan’s lips curled into a mysterious smile, her long and slim swan-like neck twisted around, and her beautiful eyes, that were as clear as lake water, fell upon Shi Yan, “You really are a masochist! In these past few days I’ve beat you up so many times, yet you still won’t change your perverted heart?”
Shi Yan lightly shouted, his body was like a sharp sword, and a magnificent strength suddenly burst out as he rapidly lunged towards Xia Xinyan.
In the middle of his charge, Shi Yan’s body suddenly shriveled up. Wisps of negative powers covered his entire body with a high momentum, like a dragon coming out of the abyss.
“You’re asking to be beaten up.”
Xia Xinyan chuckled as her delicate body lightly swung around and floated like a phantom.
Like a leaf, Xia Xinyan moved with the wind and her beautiful hair waved as her delicate hands formed a millstone-size green lotus. The green lotus was chilling to the bone, the pieces of sharp blade-like petals in the middle of the lotus shone with a frightening cold light.
Once the green lotus appeared, it immediately shot towards the oncoming Shi Yan.
Shi Yan crashed straight into the green lotus. The sharp blade-like petals in the middle of the green lotus suddenly contracted, and fiercely bound Shi Yan’s body.
“Ka ka ka!”
Struggling sounds came from inside the green lotus. Shi Yan’s body was tightly wrapped up by the green lotus, and he couldn’t move at all.
A smile lingered on Xia Xinyan’s lips. Her delicate hands slowly formed a seal, and a bright green light fell into the green lotus.
The green lotus slowly contracted, its strength like a mountain, growing bigger and bigger and completely confining Shi Yan. A chilling icy energy spread from inside the green lotus, freezing cold light appeared in the air, and the cold energy seeped through Shi Yan’s entire body.
First Sky of Rampage.
All the negative powers in Shi Yan’s body gathered in his arms. The negative power in the thick white mist was like a tide, rushing towards the center of the green lotus.
The green lotus shone with a mysterious light. Beams of green light, as thick as a man’s arm, kept stimulating, they tightly gripped Shi Yan like chains, and their binding force increased by 30%.
The icy energy seeped through his whole body. All of Shi Yan’s Profound Qi started decreasing in circulation speed, but he still clenched his teeth and kept struggling.
“Alright, stop being cocky.” Xia Xinyan said reproachfully, she swung her delicate hand in mid-air and motioned towards the green lotus.
The green lotus suddenly cracked open. Pieces of petals flew out and gathered into Xia Xinyan’s hand.
Shi Yan smiled wryly, he breathed out, and shook his head, “Back when I was in the Third Sky of the Human realm, I could kill Disaster realm warriors by using these negative powers. But now that I’m in the Disaster realm, why can’t I shake you?”
“Other than the difference in the vigorousness of Profound Qi, Disaster realm warriors focus more on their state of mind!” Xia Xinyan chuckled, “The Profound Qi inside you is more vigorous and pure than ordinary warriors of the First Sky of the Disaster realm. Your martial skills are also mysterious and unpredictable. Using negative powers, you can kill warriors in the Second Sky of the Disaster realm, and you could go face to face with warriors in the Third Sky of the Disaster realm. However, it would be difficult for you to win against Earth realm warriors. I just recently stepped into this realm, and I can already suppress you. If it were anyone else, you would lose even more miserably.”
Shi Yan frowned and stayed silent.
“I know you haven’t used all your powers yet.” Xia Xinyan smiled again and continued: “But even if you really use all your power, you could still only fight with a warrior at the Third Sky of the Disaster realm. Whether you will win or not is hard to say. In your area, the resources for warriors were limited, Martial Skills were poor in quality, and there wasn’t much knowledge about Martial Spirits. But the Endless Sea is different. In the fifteen forces, any central warrior at the Third Sky of Disaster realm is perfect in cultivating all sorts of secret skills. They also have a very thorough understanding of Martial Spirits, and, most of all, they don’t lack in battle experience. Do you understand?”
“Yes.” Shi Yan slowly nodded.
“Oh you.” Xia Xinyan shook her head, “A First Sky of the Disaster realm warrior being able to oppose a Third Sky of the Disaster realm warrior is already unbelievable. What else do you what? Could you possibly be thinking of straight up killing Earth and Nirvana realm people?”
“Hehe, I do have that thought.”
Xia Xinyan was exasperated, she glared at him and shouted: “Remember! Don’t act rashly. Don’t really think that you can fight it out with an Earth realm warrior. Starting from the Disaster realm, fighting is no longer limited to the amount of Profound Qi, but also ones level of insight, the level of one’s Martial Skills, and one’s proficiency in said skills. You’re still so young. Do you really think you can win against a warrior that has decades of experience?”
Shi Yan became silent again.
“Alright, I’ll give you some encouragement.” Xia Xinyan’s beautiful eyes rolled around, her fair-skinned neck showed some redness, “If you can really defeat me one day, then, when I want to marry, you’ll be the first choice.”
“Really?” Shi Yan’s expression shook, his eyes glimmered.
Xia Xinyan was a little too embarrassed to look at him, she turned her head away and put her back against him. She said lightly, “Yes really.”
Shi Yan grinned and laughed foolishly.
Half a month later.
Finally, this iron ship officially had entered into the Hengluo Sea.
The Hengluo Sea had countless islands. Once you entered into this sea, you would go past many different kinds of islands.
On the iron ship, the Yin Yang Wonderland flags, with the erotic images, were taken down long ago.
Now this iron ship had no more traces of the Yin Yang Wonderland.
A giant harbor appeared in front of the iron ship. There were dozens of ships parked in the harbor, some ships were a lot bigger than the one Shi Yan and Xia Xinyan were on.
Many warriors of different capabilities stood on those iron ships. Many shirtless warriors were carrying the cargo on the ship, and transporting them to the harbor.
Outside the harbor, there was a ring-shaped square. There were many different kinds of carriages parked on the square, and men and women, dressed in colorful warrior’s clothing, were shouting in the ring-shaped square. There were also people fighting in the square, battling with their lives at stake.
“This Menluo Island doesn’t belong to the Three Gods Sect, the Dongfang family, or the Gu family. It is the possession of the few collaborating forces on the island. We should go get some food on the island, and inquire about the current situation in the Endless Sea. We don’t need to stay long.” Xia Xinyan had a veil over her face. She stood on the iron ship while looking into the distance, and quietly explained.
Shi Yan nodded, “This Menluo Island is not small. It’s probably half the size of Tianyun City.”
“In the Hengluo Sea, the Menluo Island already counts as a small island. It’s also very remote, being without any rich mines or other naturally valuable resources. If it had these resources, the Three Gods Sect, the Dongfang family, and the Gu family wouldn’t have left it alone.” Xia Xinyan smiled casually, “In the Endless Sea, bigger islands are a few times the size of the whole merchant union. They call them islands, but, in reality, they’re like a continent. Don’t fuss about it too much.”
“Hmm? Are you mocking me?”
“Ha, I guess so.” Xia Xinyan smiled and nodded.
“Hey!” Suddenly, Xia Xinyan exclaimed, her expression was strange. She murmured under her breath, “Why would the Magical Wonderland’s ship be here? Ah, and the saintess from the Heaven Lake Divine Land! The Dongfang family’s ship ‘The Cloud Breaker’! What?- What is going on?”
Their iron ship shook as it was forcefully hit. Shi Yan stumbled and suddenly leaned on Xia Xinyan.
Shi Yan grabbed Xia Xinyan in his arms and frowned, “Who hit us?”
“First, let go of me.” Xia Xinyan snorted, and glared at him menacingly, “You… whenever you get a chance, you start getting presumptuous and full of yourself again! Now let go of me!”
When the beauty fell into his arms, Shi Yan’s heart shook. He carefully admired her splendid body first, and then finally let go.
“The Gu family’s ship, ‘The Dark Dawn’!” Xia Xinyan’s brows furrowed, and she spoke coldly, “It’s Gu Jiange’s ship. It seems that some changes happened on Menluo Island, or else there wouldn’t be so many forces gathering here.”
“Gu Jiange, who’s that?” Shi Yan asked with a scowl.
“The Gu family’s swordmaster genius. When he was just born, the Dragon Slaying Sword, which had been stuck in the Gu family’s Sword Mountain for centuries, flew out on its own. It kept floating thirty feet above his head and claimed its master voluntarily. Gu Jiange has the Sword Spirit Martial Spirit. It is also known that he can communicate with magic swords.”
“He’s not even that monstrous. His little sister, Gu Linglong, is more of a monster. When she was just born, the ten thousand swords in the Gu family’s sword mountain rang in harmony, and seven magic swords flew out together and voluntarily merged into her body. This monstrous girl has the ‘Heart of the Magic Sword’ Martial Spirit. She has the ability to control spirited magic swords by nature. When her mind wills it, the sword moves, up to a ten thousand li (one 里 is 500 meters) distance. For her, beheading someone is as easy as taking something out of her pocket.”
