Chapter 381 Tide Of Spirit Beasts
The embroidered box opened and a piece of blue seal appeared before Ye Chen. The stamp was extremely pure, it looked like a piece of clear blue gemstone. Below the stamp was the word “Storm” written in ancient text.
“This thing should be the lord’s seal of the House of Storms. I wonder what it’s made of. It has some similarities to the Heavenly Astra Seal.” Ye Chen palmed the seal in his right hand and glimpses of Water-type energy spread out from the seal. He was surprised. “Such condensed Water-type Celestial Chi.”
“Little brat Ye Chen, this thing is made of Water-rock Crystal. It’s a very exotic material. It contains extremely condensed Water-type Celestial Chi, serving as a great enhancement for Water-type Celestial Chi cultivators,” Master Lion said.
“When I touched this seal, I reckoned it had some sort of mystical beast sealed within it.” Ye Chen laughed.
Master Lion rolled his eyes. As if something like the Heavenly Astra Seal was so common!
“This thing is extremely valuable. If you were to sell it, it could be easily exchanged for a Myriad Sword Array,” Master Lion informed.
“So valuable?” Ye Chen was surprised.
“By wearing this item, Water-type Celestial Chi cultivators will see tremendous improvement. To some people who are having trouble breaking through their current rank, this is an incredibly sought after treasure,” Mater Lion said, “its value is probably the equivalent of several Tier Nine spirit artifacts.”
Ye Chen looked down at the Storm Seal. He had never thought this item could be so valuable. It was a shame since he did not know anyone who cultivated Water-type Celestial Chi. Little Rou was currently cultivating some sort of mystique Wood-type cultivation system so this Storm Seal would not be of much use for her.
Ye Chen stashed the Storm Seal aside. He was cultivating nine types of cultivation system. The Storm Seal may still be of some use to him.
The apprentices of the Scarlet Flame Sect were gathered in the back mountain. Under Ye Rou’s lead, they entered the forbidden Mystique Moon zone.
Ye Chen looked in front and beheld the humongous back mountain region. The region was shrouded in layers of restrictive spells. The restrictive spell was not very vivid and could not be seen at a glance. He looked inside the restrictive spell, there within was like a secluded haven, filled with the beautiful fragrance of flowers and the chirping of birds. Even though it was broad daylight, the silhouette of a moon could be seen high above.
It was not surprising that this place was called the forbidden Mystique Moon zone!
“Master Lion, how strong is the restrictive spell?” Ye Chen asked.
“I can’t tell which master set up this restrictive spell but even at my peak, wouldn’t be able to break through it.” Master Lion reflected. “That explains why this place was able to be preserved for so long.”
Ye Chen looked in front and saw Little Rou standing at the edges of the restrictive spell. It was as if her graceful manner was complemented by the beautiful silhouette of the moon, she looked like a goddess who came down to earth.
“Little brat Ye Chen, you sure are lucky. Just coming back from a little sexy lady flirting with you and now you have another little lover here. I’m starting to get jealous.” Master Lion teased.
Ye Chen smiled bitterly. Now and then, Master Lion would blurt out some vulgar remarks so he got used to it at this point.
‘Since the restrictive spell here is strong enough, I suppose I can be at ease,’ Ye Chen thought. He looked at the inner section of the forbidden Mystique Moon zone. It was as beautiful as a dream.
Word was throughout all these years, not a single member of the Scarlet Flame Sect was able to enter the forbidden Mystique Moon zone. He wondered how Little Rou was able to enter.
“Your little lover only brought them to the exterior section of the forbidden zone. This forbidden zone is separated into several sections. Even I can’t figure out what exactly is hidden in this place.” Master Lion frowned slightly.
“Is there danger lurking here?” Ye Chen asked concerningly.
“There’s nothing dangerous here. This forbidden Mystique Moon zone is probably set up by the ancestors of the Scarlet Flame Sect to be passed on to their descendants,” Master Lion thought for a moment before answering.
Just as Ye Chen was about to step foot into the forbidden Mystique Moon zone along with the apprentices of the Scarlet Flame Sect, an unruly energy erupted and formed an invisible barrier before him. It obstructed him and kept him outside. The energy weighed on him like a million mountains, he could hardly move forward.
“Such terrifying energy!” Ye Chen was shocked. He felt a wave of suppression energy beating at him as he stumbled several steps backward. Even his Astral Body trembled.
“Those who don’t belong to my house shall not intrude the forbidden Mystique Moon zone!” A deep and ancient voice echoed in Ye Chen’s mind. It made his Astral Body shudder uncontrollably.
Ye Chen immediately raised his head and looked far off into the distance. He saw the forbidden Mystique Moon zone enveloped in a cloud of mist. He could not make out if the flowers and trees were illusions or not. His eyes searched everywhere but could not locate the source of the voice.
Was there an almighty being hidden within the forbidden Mystique Moon zone?
Ye Chen looked in front and saw the apprentices of the Scarlet Flame Sect entering the forbidden Mystique Moon zone one after another. They were not obstructed by any strange force.
“May I ask who exactly this senior is?” Ye Chen delivered a message using his Astral Body.
After several moments, there was still no response. It seemed like that person did not even bother responding to Ye Chen. The air inside the forbidden Mystique Moon zone was tranquil. There were hardly any disruptive noises.
“Big Brother Ye Chen, what’s going on?” Ye Rou looked suspiciously at Ye Chen and asked. She could not figure out why ye Chen suddenly stopped and took several steps backward.
“Nothing.” Ye Chen shook his head. He thought the person inside the forbidden Mystique Moon zone could be one of the ancestors of the Scarlet Flame Sect. It did not seem like there could be any problem for Ye Rou and the others to enter the forbidden Mystique Moon zone. “I’m leaving.”
“Big Brother Ye Chen, are you not going in?” Ye Rou asked. She was a little saddened when she heard Ye Chen announce his leaving.
“I’m not going in.” Ye Chen shook his head and smiled. It did not seem like the person inside the forbidden Mystique Moon zone was very receptive to outsiders. Ye Chen brushed Ye Rou’s soft, long hair with his right hand. He could smell the faint fragrance of a young woman, it made him feel refreshed and at ease.
The elegant and quiet Little Rou looked like a goddess who came down to the realm of men. Her breathtaking beauty was indescribable.
“It’s best that you all don’t leave the forbidden Mystique Moon zone before my return,” Ye Chen advised with concern in his voice.
“Hmm.” Ye Rou bit her lips softly. She looked up and glanced at Ye Chen and could not find the words.
“Dummy, you don’t have to feel guilty.” Ye Chen immediately understood when he saw Ye Rou’s expression and he smiled. “If you have identified your goal, keep going on. Big Brother Ye Chen knows that you can always be relied upon.”
Ye Rou gave several heavy nods, her eyes were filled with tears.
“I’m leaving, Little Rou, take care!”
One Buck and Little Wingsy entered the Soul Pearl. The Golden Sun Condor took Ye Chen and soared into the skies above. Ye Rou kept waving her small hands at them to bid them farewell. Her figure slowly became smaller until she could not be seen anymore.
Even though Ye Chen wanted to take Little Rou with him, he understood that it was good for Ye Rou to remain here so she could have more space. He still had to go to the City of Apothecary Kings after it opened so he would still be coming back!
It was just a little bit of sadness that came with goodbyes, nothing more.
When Ye Chen arrived at the Oracle Sect, he took Ye Meng and Ye Xuan with him. Second Uncle Ye Zhanlong and the others had already left for the Xiwu Ye Clan and only Ye Meng and Ye Xuan remained.
The Golden Sun Condor took the three of them to the Xiwu Empire.
Ever since advancing to Daemon King Rank, the Golden Sun Condor’s speed was nothing but astounding. It soared like a bolt of lightning as the mountains and rivers very quickly vanished out of sight.
Ye Meng and Ye Xuan were amazed by the Golden Sun Condor’s speed.
Ye Chen gave Ye Meng and Ye Xuan some Cosmic Stones. Both of them sat atop the Golden Sun Condor’s back and began cultivating.
Sitting atop the Golden Sun Condor, Ye Chen still felt a little remorseful. The rapid wind endlessly howled in his ears. He released his Astral Body and extended it outward. In an instant, he could hear the call of all of the creatures within a thousand kilometres.
Countless mystical beasts trembled when they felt Ye Chen’s powerful Astral Body.
After Ye Chen’s Astral Body had advanced to Daemon King Rank, it was considered an invincible presence among the mortal realm.
They had been flying for a little over a day. In the mountainous regions far away, tens of thousands of beasts began to growl and all kinds of birds began to flock away from the area. Countless cries of different beasts were heard and the land began to quake and tremble. On the horizon, a pitch-black rising tide of beasts appeared in Ye Chen’s sight.
Several tens of thousands of Spirit Beasts appeared within Ye Chen’s sight. Each one of these Spirit Beasts was above Heavenly Venerable Rank. Every village the Spirit Beasts passed through was instantly massacred.
One after another, the people cried out horrifically. Their souls went up to the skies above and were devoured by the Spirit Beasts. The Spirit Beasts grew darker and slowly became stronger from feeding on souls.
These Spirit Beasts survive by feeding on souls!
From a thousand kilometres away, Ye Chen could see the villages being desecrated one after another. He was in shock. Why were Spirit Beasts appearing here? Should not Spirit Beasts only appear in the Soul Pagoda?
“Ye Meng, Ye Xuan, I’ll be back soon,” Ye Chen informed Ye Meng and Ye Xuan. A quick “swoosh” followed. He had turned into a bolt of lightning and appeared a hundred kilometres away.
Ye Meng and Ye Xuan were at a loss for words when they saw Ye Chen’s figure. They could barely comprehend what stage Ye Chen was at now. They could hardly even comprehend the Golden Sun Condor’s strength. When they looked at Ye Chen’s silhouette, they became even more determined to grow stronger. Ye Chen would always be the one they hoped to catch up to!
“Swoosh, swoosh, swoosh”, bolts of sparks appeared on Ye Chen’s body. Before long, he appeared above a village. The village was completely desecrate. The village sheltered several hundred villagers but not a single one survived. It was in complete ruins as if a swarm of locust had just passed through. There were countless skeletons sprawled across the village.
“Master Lion, why did the Spirit Beasts appear here?” Ye Chen asked worryingly.
“I’m not sure either. This must be the work of someone else,” Master Lion frowned and replied solemnly.
Just who was it that was cruel enough to let the Spirit Beasts massacre humans? When Ye Chen saw the village left in ruins, he was furious. He roared and summoned the Ternary Sword Array. “Swoosh, swoosh, swoosh”, the shadows of the three swords swung downward.
“Swish, swish, swish”, countless Spirit Beasts were cut down by Ye Chen’s Ternary Sword Array.
It caused an uproar among several tens of thousands of Spirit Beasts. Several hundred Psyches began to reach toward Ye Chen. If there were ten thousand Spirit Beasts, there would be ten thousand waves of Psyche, it was the same for mystical beasts and Celestial Beasts.
“Kill!” Ye Chen’s eyes glowed red like a demonic god. He released his Astral Body and extended it toward the few hundred Spirit Beasts.
The Spirit Beasts only possessed Psyche of Heavenly Venerable Rank so it was far inferior to Ye Chen’s Daemon King Rank Psyche.
“Boom, boom, boom”, several hundred Psyches were blown apart by Ye Chen. Several hundred Spirit Beasts could be seen collapsing onto the ground.
Only a small part of the Spirit Beasts was able to exert Psyche and they were the same as Mystical Beasts.
Ye Chen’s Astral Body had materialized into the gold-armored soldier. The gigantic and mighty soldier came over the Spirit Beasts and viciously swung the Fangtian halberd. “Thump, thump, thump”, fresh blood splattered everywhere.The Spirit Beasts were sliced clean by the gold-armored soldier’s Fangtian Halberd. They shrieked horrifically, their limbs and blood scattered everywhere.
Everywhere the gold-armored soldier arrived, a mass casualty of Spirit Beasts followed.
