Inside the ship’s hold, all kinds of Spirit Formation flashed wildly, a sign that the Spirit Formation had been pushed to their limits. Cracking sounds came from all directions.
“Patriarch, we can’t go any deeper, if we go any deeper, I’m afraid…” A burly man walked over with a terrified look on his face. Only now did he realize that this trip was not a lucky one, it was clearly a suicide mission.
Yan Luo said lightly, “Speed up!”
The burly man’s expression changed.
Yan Luo raised his hand and sent out a palm strike, but the burly man didn’t utter a single word. The top of his head caved in and he collapsed to the ground, his brain leaking out. The surrounding Yan Family disciples all fell silent.
“Speed up!” Yan Luo shouted again.
Without any hesitation, the Yan Family disciples began pouring their strength into the various Spirit Formation, causing the warship to slow down slightly before suddenly accelerating.
There was no way out in front of them, only endless brilliant colors. The pressure from the void was constantly destroying the structure of the warship. Even though this warship was at the Void King Grade Mid-Rank, it still let out a series of painful groans.
After a while, one of the Spirit Formation in the warship's hold suddenly dimmed, a sign that it had completely collapsed. At the same time, a certain part of the warship also began to collapse, as if a chain reaction had occurred. With the damaged warship at the center, the damage rapidly expanded, and pieces of the warship's structure began to fall apart.
One Spirit Formation after another stopped operating.
Many of the Yan Family disciples’ faces were as pale as paper as they all turned to look at Yan Luo, only to see that his expression was calm and indifferent, as if he didn’t care about this crisis at all, causing a surge of hope to rise in their hearts.
The Patriarch would definitely bring them out of their current predicament. They were all carefully selected people who would follow the Patriarch to conquer the Ancestor Territory, so how could they die here for no reason?
After the time it took for an incense stick to burn, all hope was extinguished.
With a loud bang, the warship shattered.
The power of the Void surged in from all directions. Without the protection of the warship, how could the cultivators who had yet to reach the Void King Realm survive?
*Puff… * It was as if a bubble had been punctured and a cloud of blood mist exploded in the air, releasing a bright red color.
“Patriarch, save me!”
Roars and cries for help rang out from all directions, but Yan Luo ignored them. His figure flickered and a layer of pitch-black armor covered his body, covering his entire body from head to toe, making him look like an ancient general who had ridden his horse to break through enemy lines.
He Yunxiang also summoned her ribbon artifact.
After a period of diligent refinement, although this Principle Source Grade Low-Rank artifact couldn’t be used at will, it could at least display some usefulness. This ribbon artifact’s offensive and defensive capabilities were extremely rare and its grade wasn’t too high. It was perfect for He Yunxiang’s current cultivation.
The ribbon became wider, wrapping around her body as if she was wearing a new colored dress. Feeling the pressure lessen, she followed Yang Kai closely, not daring to leave.
Yan Luo also ran over and stood side by side with He Yunxiang, glancing at the ribbon in surprise as his eyes narrowed.
His eyesight was extraordinary, so he could naturally tell that this ribbon was not an ordinary item. It was definitely not something that the artifacts he had seen before could compare with. Although he coveted it greatly, he did not show it on the surface!
'I’ll let you take care of it for a while. After a while, this treasure will be mine!'
At this moment, the cries for help had died down. From the time the warship was damaged until now, only ten breaths had passed. The hundreds of Yan Family disciples who had come to control the warship had all died, but from beginning to end, Yan Luo had not reacted at all, as if the one who had died was not a Yan Family member but a stranger.
He Yunxiang’s heart trembled as she became more convinced that this man was ruthless. She had killed many people and committed arson, but it was impossible for her to be as heartless as him.
In the endless void, it was impossible to tell which direction was north and which was south. As far as the eye could see, all of them were bathed in a brilliant red light. This was the first time Yan Luo and He Yunxiang had experienced such a battle, so they quickly forgot about what had happened before and began to appreciate the wonders of their surroundings.
Yang Kai walked at the forefront of the group, but there was still no trace of spiritual energy fluctuations coming from his body. The terrifying pressure directly affected his body, but it was unable to make him frown.
The entire world was extremely quiet and the sound of their heartbeats could be heard clearly.
Yan Luo couldn’t help feeling that something wasn’t right, because this journey had been extremely safe, and he hadn’t encountered any sudden or dangerous situations.
Five hundred years ago, the Old Ancestor set out for the Ancestor Territory. No one knew if he had succeeded or not, but Yan Luo knew that the Old Ancestor had successfully arrived at the Ancestor Territory. Three months after the Old Ancestor set out, the Yan Family had used a Secret Technique left behind by the Old Ancestor to contact him, and at that time, the Old Ancestor had explained everything he had experienced in detail.
Especially when he passed through this multicolored void. According to the Old Ancestor, this place was extremely dangerous, and the slightest mistake would result in one’s body being torn apart. In this extremely beautiful world, there were many dangers that ordinary people could not discover.
Yan Luo had made all the necessary preparations, constantly maintaining his vigilance, fearing that some kind of danger would suddenly descend upon him.
However, from beginning to end, everything was calm and peaceful, as if they were walking in their own backyard, without the slightest hint of danger.
The Old Ancestor would never lie to him.
The only explanation was that either the three of them had heaven-defying luck, or the leader had avoided many dangers in advance, so they hadn’t encountered any.
Yan Luo hoped it was the former, because if it was the latter, then this person was simply too terrifying. Perhaps… the Yan Family’s deployment was not the right choice, causing him to suddenly feel uneasy.
There were no other objects around them, so no one knew how far they had gone. Yan Luo’s Treasure Armor had already lost its luster, so it was obvious that it had lost a great deal of its spirituality. However, Yan Luo had been prepared for this and immediately changed to another set of Treasure Armor. He Yunxiang had also consumed a great deal of her Saint Yuan, so she had to use her Saint Yuan to maintain her defences. With her 3rd order Void King Realm cultivation, controlling a Principle Source Grade artifact was already difficult for her, so it was naturally impossible for her to last long.
Feeling somewhat distressed, she took out a Spirit Pill from her Space Ring and swallowed it. Immediately, her tender body trembled as she felt a warm flow of energy flow from her lower abdomen into her limbs and bones. Her Saint Qi, which had been on the verge of drying up, was greatly replenished at this moment, and the medicinal efficacies were endless, causing her to be unable to refine and absorb them in time.
As expected, the actions of her Lord were all good stuff! It was absolutely impossible for such an outstanding Spirit Pill to exist in the Star Territory. She didn’t even know the name of this Spirit Pill, only that it was used to replenish one’s strength and was given to her by Yang Kai with the Source Congealing Pill a few days ago.
As time passed, no matter how beautiful the scenery was, there would always be a time when they would get tired of it. The three of them were like travelers walking through a lonely desert, with no idea where they were going. Yan Luo’s expectant expression had changed to one of disappointment, and He Yunxiang was also somewhat anxious. Only Yang Kai’s expression remained unchanged, not even changing his pace.
At a certain moment, Yang Kai suddenly raised his brow and turned to He Yunxiang, “We’ve arrived!”
He Yunxiang was stunned for a moment before becoming overjoyed.
Yan Luo also suddenly raised his head and looked towards the front, only to see that there seemed to be some unique scenery in the distance. Immediately, his face lit up with joy. He no longer had his Treasure Armor, so what he wore was his last. If he couldn’t reach the Ancestor Territory, he could only shamelessly ask Yang Kai for protection.
Fortunately, his goal was right in front of him, so this period of persistence was not in vain.
The three of them quickened their pace.
A full day later, a whirlpool of five colors appeared in front of the three of them. This whirlpool appeared to be in an extremely mysterious state of stillness. Standing in front of this whirlpool, the three of them were as insignificant as three specks of dust.
Yan Luo’s lips trembled slightly as he stared at the vortex, seemingly able to pierce through space and see the scenery on the other side.
He Yunxiang’s eyes also flashed with a brilliant light. If it were three months ago, she would never have imagined that she would have such a day. The Ancestor Territory seemed to be a place that could be reached with a single step. This was a dream many people had dreamed of for their entire lives, but now it was within reach.
Both of them turned to look at Yang Kai and were surprised to find that he had closed his eyes and was standing there quietly.
No one dared to disturb him.
After a while, Yang Kai opened his eyes and said, “Let’s go.”
Taking a step forward, he directly stepped into the motionless multi-colored vortex.
Yan Luo and He Yunxiang were not to be outdone and quickly followed, a sense of weightlessness enveloping them.
Feeling dizzy and shaken, He Yunxiang and Yan Luo tried their best to listen, but their ears were buzzing so much they couldn’t hear what was being said.
Only Yang Kai remained silent as he looked around.
The Ancestor Territory was a mysterious place. On his way here, he had thought about what kind of place the Ancestor Territory was, but after arriving here, he realized that it was somewhat different from what he had imagined.
It wasn’t that he was disappointed, but the scene in front of him… something didn’t feel right.
“Someone’s coming, someone’s coming.”
“Woah, three of them came together, which Star Territory are they from?”
“My Beyond the Heavens Sect wants one of these three.”
“Surnamed Liu, why don’t you go fuck yourself? If you want it, you can have it. First, ask your brother if he agrees!”
“So what if you agree? So what if you don’t? Do you want to fight me?”
“Come, who’s afraid of who!”
“No matter what you think, my Star Luo Mountain also wants one.”
“My Holy Mountain Peak wants the last one.”
“Are you joking?”
“Fuck your mother!”
“Why are you cursing?”
As if because of the appearance of Yang Kai and the other two, the situation suddenly became somewhat out of control, leaving Yang Kai dumbfounded.
“All of you, shut up! Don’t make such a ruckus, don’t make others look down on us. Don’t tell me you don’t know the rules of the past? Ask them where they came from first,” A sallow-faced old man suddenly spoke. This old man seemed to have some prestige, his figure was thin and his spirit was vigorous. Holding a dry tobacco pipe in his hand, the smoke from the pot seemed to be emitting sparks. As soon as he opened his mouth, everyone fell silent, all of them staring towards Yang Kai and the others.
