“Where is the danger?” Yang Kai’s Divine Sense swept over the area, but he didn’t find anything unusual, so he couldn’t help feeling somewhat surprised.
Pu Baixiong said seriously, “This water is poisonous and there is something underwater.”
“Poisonous water?” Yang Kai’s expression became serious. Before entering this place, Zhu Jiuyin had told him that there were many opportunities and dangers here, so he had to be careful.
Yang Kai was the Bearer she had chosen, so she naturally didn’t want him to fail.
This swamp seemed unremarkable, but it was also filled with danger, causing Yang Kai to sigh.
At this moment, several kilometers away, a group of people looked over in surprise and one of the young men asked, “What is on that man’s shoulder?”
It was unknown which force this group of people came from, but when they saw Pu Baixiong, all of them were surprised.
A half-grown old man used his eyes to look over, his expression suddenly becoming shocked as he cried out in joy, “Holy Medicine with transform shape!”
As soon as these words came out, everyone’s breathing quickened. Although their group had gained some benefits from entering this Unaging Land, compared to a single transformed shape Holy Medicine, their gains were negligible.
On the top of this Holy Medicine’s head was a bunch of purple and green berries with seven orifices, hands, and feet. It was obvious that these fruits had existed for countless years and were extremely rare.
Seeing this scene now, everyone’s greed was naturally aroused.
After exchanging a glance, the two of them flew towards Yang Kai.
Pu Baixiong’s roots danced about as he scratched his face and said disdainfully, “Ignorant fool!”
As soon as his voice fell, a series of screams rang out as the cultivators who were flying in the air all fell uncontrollably from the sky.
Plop! Plop! Plop! Many cultivators fell into the swamp’s water pit, shocked, but before they could even crawl out, they suddenly screamed miserably.
Flesh and blood separated, and in the blink of an eye, the cultivators who had fallen into the water pit turned into skeletons and disappeared into the water.
The remaining cultivators were quite lucky and didn’t directly fall into the water pit. At this moment, standing atop the swamp, all of them were terrified and didn’t dare to move.
“This water really is poisonous!” Yang Kai’s heart trembled. These cultivators had been in the Great Ruins Boundary for more than ten years, and each of them had grown greatly in strength. Although they hadn’t been able to achieve Open Heaven, they had at least condensed a few Yin-Yang Five Elements, making them the cream of the crop among the Emperor Realm masters. However, this group of cultivators didn’t even have the strength to resist when they fell into the water, turning into dried bones. It was obvious how potent the poison of this swamp water was.
If this was all there was to it, it wouldn’t be a big deal, but there seemed to be a natural barrier above the swamp that prevented anyone from flying.
“Don’t move, don’t move, be careful of these water pits, don’t fall down,” The old man shouted.
As soon as his voice fell, a pitch-black tentacle suddenly reached out from the water pit beneath his feet and dragged him into it.
With a burst of bubbles, the old man disappeared.
“What’s that?” Yang Kai’s scalp went numb. He had just caught a glimpse of it, but he hadn’t been able to clearly see what it was that had dragged the old man into the swamp. All he could see was that it was some kind of invisible tentacle.
Pu Baixiong whispered, “I’m not too sure, I only know that there’s something underwater, but if you don’t make a sound, it won’t be able to sense you.”
Yang Kai nodded slightly.
The death of the half-grown old man caused the cultivators who were still alive to panic. Many of them let out a strange cry and quickly fled out of the swamp. It would have been better if they hadn’t moved, but as soon as they did, black tentacles suddenly shot out from the swamp’s water pit and wrapped around their waists, dragging them into the water pit.
One by one, the cultivators quickly disappeared as giant bubbles appeared in the water.
The power of the Secret Technique and Artifact burst forth, and many cultivators tried to resist and cut off the tentacles, but no matter how many they tried, they were unable to cut through them.
In just a dozen breaths of time, only a dozen or so people remained in the original hundred or so people, all of them standing in the swamp, unable to advance or retreat.
Their luck was quite good, they didn’t move or make any noise, allowing them to survive.
Seeing their companion fall one after another, they didn’t dare act recklessly.
Yang Kai clicked his tongue and asked, “Can we take a detour?”
This swamp was quite strange, causing him to feel somewhat apprehensive.
Pu Baixiong said, “If you want to take a detour, you’ll have to walk a long distance. Don’t worry, with me leading the way, we’ll definitely be able to pass safely.”
Yang Kai was skeptical, but he still braced himself and walked forward.
Pu Baixiong whispered into his ear, “Don’t make any noise, otherwise we’ll be in trouble. Also, don’t touch that poisonous water, otherwise it’ll be even more troublesome.”
“You’re so long-winded!” Yang Kai said disdainfully.
“Talking so much is for your own good, I don’t want to die here with you,” Pu Baixiong said angrily.
This time, his voice was a bit loud, and a tentacle emerged from the swamp.
Pu Baixiong suddenly became silent, and Yang Kai also froze in place, not daring to move. The tentacle stopped three inches in front of Yang Kai and slowly swayed before withdrawing.
Yang Kai let out a long breath and continued forward.
The dozen or so cultivators who were lucky enough to survive watched for a while, and some of them followed suit, carefully walking through the swamp.
After walking for a while, Pu Baixiong suddenly let out a soft cry and whispered, “Why is there an eye in this water?”
Yang Kai was startled and looked down. Sure enough, he saw an extra eye appear in the water pit next to him. Rather than saying that it was an extra eye, it would be more accurate to say that the water pit had transformed into a giant eye that was following his every step, quietly staring at him.
Yang Kai couldn’t help feeling a chill run down his spine as he froze in place, “Grape, didn’t you know there were eyes in this water?”
Pu Baixiong swallowed his saliva and said bitterly, “I’ve never met one before.”
“What kind of damned place is this? It’s one thing for Holy Medicine they become sentient, but why does this swamp also seem to have become sentient?” Yang Kai’s forehead was covered in cold sweat.
“Don’t try to scare me,” Pu Bai Xiong forced out a laugh, “We must have seen wrongly. If you close your eyes and look again, you won’t see anything…”
Saying so, he closed his eyes and slowly opened them, exclaiming in horror, “More eyes!”
The moment he closed his eyes, all the water pits in the swamp transformed into giant eyes that stared at Yang Kai and the dozen or so cultivators.
The dozen or so cultivators also noticed this scene and were immediately frightened out of their wits. Some of the timider ones even began running.
This movement caused the entire swamp to tremble as countless tentacles stretched out from the giant eyes and wrapped around the surrounding area, sealing off the world.
“Run!” Yang Kai shouted as his figure flickered and he quickly fled.
Countless tentacles wrapped around Yang Kai as Pu Baixiong grabbed his ears and shouted in horror, “Dead, dead, I’m dead!”
Seeing that the tentacles were about to wrap around Yang Kai, Yang Kai’s body burst into flames and the approaching tentacles were all burnt to ashes.
Pu Baixiong was burnt to a crisp and his head was on fire as he said pitifully, “Master, why are you burning me? I’m almost burnt to a crisp.”
“Shut up!” Yang Kai shouted angrily.
He had already done his best to protect Pu Baixiong, otherwise with the Golden Crow True Fire, how could this Holy Medicine survive?
The burning tentackles squeaked, the Golden Crow True Fire’s power was extraordinary powerful. As the burning tentacles reached the water pit, the giant eyes in the water pit burst open.
An earth-shattering roar rang out from the depths of the ground, followed by a series of earth-shaking tremors as a massive creature slowly crawled up from the bottom of the swamp.
This giant creature was over a thousand feet tall and was covered in eyes, its body covered in layers of dried bones. It was unknown how many dead thing had gathered here, but each of these eyes was large and small. At first glance, they looked like water pits, and from these eyes, black tentacles stretched out and flew towards Yang Kai.
There wasn’t just one of these giant creatures, but more than a hundred of them, all of them startled.
Yang Kai looked back and was immediately shocked. Only now did he realize that the entire swamp was formed from these giant creatures, and the water pits were actually their eyes.
What the hell was this?
Over the years, Yang Kai had traveled far and wide, so he could be considered quite knowledgeable, but he had never seen such a creature before. It was likely that only a place like the Unaging Land could produce such a strange existence.
“Fire Dragon’s Breath!” Yang Kai took a deep breath and his body seemed to swell before spitting out a mouthful of flames.
The Golden Crow’s True Fire burned the sky red, and the tentacles that stretched out were burned to dust, but the hundreds of tentacles were still burning.
After Yang Kai spat out a mouthful of Golden Crow True Fire, the situation didn’t change much. The giant creatures behind him continued to chase after him.
Pu Baixiong shouted, “Master, run! After running a certain distance, they won’t chase us anymore.”
Yang Kai ran for more than a thousand kilometers, but he still couldn’t shake them off, shouting angrily, “Didn’t you say that they wouldn’t chase after me after running a certain distance? Why are they still following me?!”
Pu Baixiong was somewhat embarrassed, “I didn’t know they were so difficult to deal with, I’ve never seen them before.”
Yang Kai coldly snorted, “Dragon Transformation!”
With a Dragon Roar, Yang Kai’s body suddenly expanded, and after a series of crackling sounds, dragon scales covered his entire body. These dragon scales were covered in natural patterns, thick and solid, impervious to fire and water, with two horns growing on his head, his hands transforming into dragon claws, his dragon tail sweeping behind him, and his dragon beard fluttering in the wind.
Dragon Prestige filled the air!
Pu Baixiong was stunned!
Yang Kai was also stunned. It had been a long time since he had used the Dragon Transformation Secret Technique, and all these years he had been using the Dragon Blood Pill to purify his bloodline. Although he knew he would definitely grow, he had not expected his growth to be so great.
At this moment, his Dragon Transformation physique was more than a hundred and fifty zhang long. Not only that, but the characteristics of the Dragon Race had also become more obvious. If his Dragon Transformation had only had a few Dragon Race characteristics before, now thirty to forty percent of them were Dragon Race!
