The pool wasn’t big, only about 10 zhang wide, but when the dragon souls that were a hundred zhang long or even more plunged into it, they all disappeared and the thick amber liquid in the pool gradually increased.
When the last hundred zhang long dragon soul entered the pool, the liquid inside was almost full.
“Dragon Transformation Pond… this is the Dragon Transformation Pond…” Zhu Yan’s face flushed red with excitement as he muttered under his breath, his body trembling slightly.
The Dragon Transformation Pond of the Dragon Race was completely different from the legendary Dragon Transformation Pond in rumors.
It was rumored that there was a magical place in this world that could transform a beast with the Dragon Race’s bloodline into a dragon’s body, allowing a carp to leap over the Dragon Gate. This so-called magical place was called the Dragon Transformation Pond.
However, according to the records of the Dragon Race’s ancestral records, the true Dragon Transformation Pond wasn’t like that at all, but what he was seeing right now! Zhu Yan didn’t know what this pool hidden deep inside the Dragon Temple was, but after seeing the dragon souls of the past Great Elders merge into it and transform into pure Dragon Marrow, how could he not remember?
It was rumored that the Dragon God had once created the Dragon Transformation Pond, and if the Dragon Transformation Pond was not destroyed, the Dragon Race would not be destroyed! The importance of the Dragon Transformation Pond to the Dragon Race was self-evident. Zhu Yan didn’t understand what this meant before, but now he understood.
With this Dragon Transformation Pond, how could the Dragon Race be destroyed? Perhaps they would decline, but as long as they had enough accumulation, they would eventually rise again.
“If you don’t enter now, when will you?” Yang Kai turned to look at the two Dragon Clan Elders.
Zhu Yan and Fu Zhun glanced at each other before flying out together. In mid-air, a dragon’s roar shook the heavens as an Azure Dragon and an Ice Dragon appeared and flew towards the Dragon Transformation Pond.
The two Great Elders both had Tenth-Order Dragon Veins, and their True Forms were more than 50 or 60 zhang long. Although they couldn’t compare to Yang Kai and the first generation Dragon Clan Great Elder’s hundred zhang long dragon bodies, they were still massive.
However, the pool seemed to have a kind of spatial pocket effect, and as soon as the giant dragon entered it, it disappeared.
Immediately after, a muffled groan rang out from the Dragon Transformation Pond, as if it was enduring some kind of immense pain.
Yang Kai strode towards the Dragon Transformation Pond and when he got close enough, he looked down and saw two giant dragons, each had shrunk countless times, swimming about in the pond. Each time they rolled and squirmed, the thick Dragon Marrow Liquid would ripple and emit a dragon’s roar. Zhu Yan and Fu Zhun were obviously not as relaxed as they appeared.
If you wanted to obtain more power, you naturally had to pay a price. Although the Dragon Marrow Liquid in the Dragon Transformation Pond was amazing, if you couldn’t endure the torture of cleansing the muscles and marrow, how could you become stronger?
Yang Kai sat cross-legged next to the Dragon Transformation Pond and grinned at the two dragons inside, “You two enjoy yourselves.”
That malicious smile made Zhu Yan and Fu Zhun shiver.
Yang Kai formed a series of hand seals with his two claws, and the Dragon’s Language began again. Zhu Yan and Fu Zhun didn’t have time to think about this, and even louder dragon roars rang out from the pool as the two dragon bodies began to tumble about, their sturdy dragon bodies cracking as the Dragon Marrow Liquid poured into their bodies, stimulating their Origin Source Energy.
High Heaven Palace, atop a spirit peak, a graceful figure stood atop a stone platform, gazing towards the south. The afterglow of the setting sun shone upon her beautiful face, adding a hint of loneliness and sadness to it. As the wind blew, her black hair fluttered and she breathed in the somewhat cold air, her lungs feeling cold.
At Lan Xun’s feet, a palm-sized little girl was tugging at her pants as she climbed up. It was not easy for her to climb onto Lan Xun’s shoulder, so she was panting heavily as she sat down on Lan Xun’s shoulder and stared off into the distance.
“Am I very useless?” Lan Xun suddenly asked, her eyes slightly red.
Now that her father had died and the foundation he had left behind had been lost, her dream of reviving Star Soul Palace’s glory had become nothing more than a fool’s dream. Without any future direction, she didn’t know what to do.
The little person couldn’t speak, and after a while, Lan Xun’s tears fell, causing the little person to panic a little. Lifting her two small hands to the tears that were even bigger than her fists, feeling anxious.
Lan Xun suddenly wiped her eyes and took a deep breath to calm her rolling emotions.
Light footsteps came from behind and Xiao Chen’s weak voice rang out, “Princess, you’ve come here again.”
Lan Xun turned her back to him and said, “High Heaven Palace’s scenery is quite good.”
Xiao Chen came to her side and stood next to her, smiling as he said, “It’s still a bit lacking compared to the Divine Palace.” As soon as he finished speaking, he realized something was wrong and quickly said, “Please forgive me, Princess, I didn’t mean to…”
Lan Xun smiled and waved her hand, “It doesn’t matter, the Demon Race is powerful and the outcome of this battle doesn’t mean anything. The one who laughs last is the winner.”
Xiao Chen nodded and said, “It’s good that Princess thinks so. We’ll definitely take back the Divine Palace one day.”
“Yes, I will,” Lan Xun agreed casually. How could she not want to take it back? But now that Star Soul Palace had become a Demon Land, even if she took it back, what could she do? If she didn’t dispel the Demonic Qi in that land, who could survive for long in there?
“Kya!” The little girl clenched her teeth and clenched her fists, seemingly trying to encourage Lan Xun.
Lan Xun smiled and reached out to touch the little person’s face. These past few days, it was all thanks to her accompanying her, otherwise, she didn’t know if she would have been able to persist. With her here, there was hope for everything.
Xiao Chen turned his head and stared fixedly at the little person. Although he knew she was just a Universe Tower Spirit, he still found it unbelievable.
The little girl seemed to be unable to bear the attention of others and after being stared at by Xiao Chen, her face turned red and she was at a loss for what to do. Her small body twisted and transformed into a stalk of shy grass before disappearing into Lan Xun’s body.
The afterglow of the setting sun shone on the side of Lan Xun’s face, the thick melancholy almost covering it. Why did the once small little girl have to shoulder such a heavy responsibility that made most people feel despair? The previously carefree Southern Region Princess now had a look of determination that many people had never seen before.
Many years ago, in Star Soul Palace, a little boy met a little girl for the first time. The little boy shouted, “Follow me from now on, I will protect you!”
The little girl couldn’t stop giggling.
“I will become stronger, I can really protect you!” The little boy’s expression was extremely serious.
Xiao Chen felt a little distressed and wanted to take her into his arms, shelter her from the wind and rain, and let her put down the heavy burden on her shoulders!
“The sun has set, so I’ll be going back first. Senior Brother should also go back and rest early. Your injuries… have yet to heal.” Lan Xun smiled at Xiao Chen before turning around and leaving.
Xiao Chen’s hand that had just been raised fell to the ground as he stared at the darkness that was gradually swallowing the light, his hands clenching into fists.
If he wanted to become stronger, he must become stronger. Only by becoming stronger would he be able to share her burdens and resolve her difficulties. Only then would he not feel so powerless!
East Territory, Wild Ancient Land.
The three Monster Race Holy Venerable commanded the three Great Demon Race armies, and most of their subordinates were either Monster Race or Monster Race descendants, but there are very few real human race.
The Stone Puppet Clan and Wood Spirit Clan, which had originally lived in the Wild Ancient Land, also belonged to Luan Feng and the others. In the many battles against the Demon Race, the Stone Puppet Clan had played a huge role. Each of the nine Stone Puppets had killed countless enemies, and the healing abilities of the Wood Spirit Race were highly valued by Luan Feng and the others. Countless soldiers had been saved by them.
Currently, to the three Monster Race Holy Venerable, whether it was the Stone Puppet Clan or the Wood Spirit Clan, they were all precious treasures, especially the Wood Spirits. They would not be placed in danger, so they were generally prioritized for protection.
Because of this, although the previous battles had been fierce, the Stone Puppet and Wood Spirit Race had suffered no casualties.
At this moment, in Phoenix Gathering Palace, Luan Feng, Fan Wu, and Cang Gou were all present, with a Monster Chief Commander kneeling in front of them.
After he finished speaking, Luan Feng suddenly stood up and asked, “Are you sure?”
The Monster Chief Commander quickly replied, “Reporting to Holy Venerable, this subordinate is absolutely sure. These past few years, this subordinate has been keeping an eye on the Blood Gate, and there have indeed been some unusual movements in its location. Although it is not obvious, this subordinate can guarantee that it is true.”
“Report in details.”
The Monster Chief Commander didn’t dare delay and quickly explained what he had seen.
All these years, he had been ordered to guard the Blood Gate’s territory and monitor the situation there. No one understood the situation there better than him. Since the Blood Gate disappeared back then, almost thirty years had passed, and it had always been unusually calm. Who would have thought that some time ago, a strange force had suddenly emerged from the Blood Gate’s territory, causing him to sense it. After confirming that it was not an illusion, he hurriedly came to report it.
However, that was all he knew.
After hearing this, Luan Feng glanced over at Fan Wu and saw that he was also staring back at her. Without any need for communication, Fan Wu stood up and said, “Let’s go take a look.”
No matter what, the Blood Gate’s abnormal movements were a major event for the Ancient Land's Monster Race. Since ancient times, there was a saying that went, “Enter the Blood Gate, obtain new life, return the Ancestral Blood glory, and transform into the Holy Spirit.”
The Blood Gate Secret Ground was a Holy Land for all the Monster Race in the Wild Ancient Land.
Because there was a Heaven Punishment Palace there, the Heaven Punishment Palace was sealed with the Origin Source Energy of countless Ancient Holy Spirits, and the Monster Race of the Wild Ancient Land had more or less inherited the bloodline of Ancient Holy Spirits. These bloodlines were hidden in one’s flesh and blood and could not be activated normally, but if one could obtain the Origin Source Energy of the Ancient Holy Spirit in the Heaven Punishment Palace, they would be able to perfectly fuse with it and become one of the Holy Spirits, restoring the glory of their ancestors.
This ancient saying had been passed down for countless generations, but after so many years, no one had been able to enter the Blood Gate Secret Ground.
A few decades ago, a little girl named Zhang Ruoxi brought a small Stone Puppet into the Blood Gate and disappeared.
Thinking back to that day, Zhang Ruoxi’s cultivation was clearly only at the Principle Source Stage, so she couldn’t even withstand a single blow from Luan Feng and the others, but when Yang Kai was forced into a desperate situation, she suddenly erupted, awakened her bloodline, summoned her Heavenly Punishment Sword, killed Shi Huo/Stone Fire, and reached out to take his Stone Fire Source. A Holy Spirit, one of the Four Holy Venerables of the Wild Ancient Land, actually had no strength to resist her.
