The two of them had sat down for less than six hours and were in the midst of meditating when they suddenly heard a loud roar. Immediately after, one of them laughed, “I’ve comprehended it, this Blood Monster's Inheritance is mine!”
His laughter was filled with arrogance and pride.
Due to this disturbance, all the cultivators who were meditating under the stone tablet couldn’t help but open their eyes and look forward, only to see the Great Thousand Blood Land’s disciple laughing madly towards the sky, a bloody mist swirling around him.
At this moment, this man was smiling as he strode towards the Blood Lake, his eyes filled with wisdom. As long as he crossed this final stretch of the Blood Lake, he would be able to reach the palace at the center of the lake and see what the inheritance was!
A black fog suddenly surged over, transforming into a giant black python that opened its mouth and bit down towards him. This black python was extremely lifelike, and the Demonic Qi it exuded was extremely terrifying.
The Great Thousand Blood Land disciple was shocked and quickly retreated, the blood mist around his body trembling as it transformed into a blood red blade and slashed towards the black python.
With a loud cracking sound, the black python was cut in half by the blood blade, but before the Great Thousand Blood Land disciple could breathe a sigh of relief, the broken black light suddenly dispersed and transformed into countless small snakes that shot out like lightning.
The Great Thousand Blood Land disciple let out a low shout and used both his hands to form a series of hand seals, instantly transforming his blood blade into a myriad of blades as he hurriedly retreated while shouting, “Slash Slash Slash!”
The black snakes were cut apart and transformed into Demonic Qi before dissipating. The Blood Blade also disappeared in an extremely short time.
After all the black snakes were killed, the blood mist around the Great Thousand Blood Land’s disciple also became much thinner. He suddenly turned his head and glared in a certain direction, “Pei Wenxuan, what are you doing!”
The attack just now was too obvious. He didn’t even need to look to know that it was Myriad Demons Heaven's Pei Wenxuan who had attacked, so he was both shocked and angry.
Pei Wenxuan sat still and stared at him coldly, “I just don’t like you!”
The Great Thousand Blood Land Disciple was furious, but although his strength was not bad, he was still not a match for this Pei Wenxuan, so he could only suppress his anger and say, “I, Zhou Yi, will remember Brother Pei’s kindness today, and I will definitely repay it in the future!” His words clearly indicated that he would take revenge in the future.
Saying these words, he was about to head towards the palace in the middle of the lake, but just as he was about to take a step forward, Pei Wenxuan said lightly, “Why don’t you try moving?”
Zhou Yi raised one foot in the air, not daring to land it, his eyes fixed on Pei Wenxuan, “What does Brother Pei mean?”
He could feel that Pei Wenxuan’s aura was firmly locked onto him, like a cheetah preparing to pounce on its prey, ready to pounce at any moment. This made him feel as if a volcano was about to erupt in his heart, squeezing him painfully.
Pei Wenxuan said lightly, “If you had quietly left after comprehending the Blood Shine Scripture, this Pei wouldn’t have bothered to find trouble with you, but you deliberately let out such a long howl to disturb this Pei’s state of mind, causing all of this Pei’s previous efforts to go down the drain. Do you think this Pei is easy to bully?”
Zhou Yi gritted his teeth and said, “I was too happy just now and was unable to control my emotions, it wasn’t intentional!”
Pei Wenxuan sneered, “Whether it was intentional or not, I have my own judgment, your excuses are useless.”
Zhou Yi shouted, “Then what does Brother Pei want?”
“Nothing!” Pei Wenxuan lazily shook his head, “As long as you stand there quietly, after this Pei comprehends this Blood Shine Scripture, you can set out with me.”
Zhou Yi was furious. He had been in the lead since he came to this Blood Lake, and now he was far ahead of everyone here in the final stage, yet Pei Wenxuan wanted him to wait? How could he accept this? If that was the case, all his previous efforts and advantages would be gone. He was even prepared to set out first to see if he could obtain the Blood Dao Inheritance of Blood Monster Divine Monarch. No matter what, those who entered the palace in the middle of the lake had some advantages.
“Does Brother Pei think I’m easy to bully? Although you’re a disciple of the Myriad Demons Heaven, we’re both not Open Heaven Stage masters yet, so the gap between us isn’t too big. If Brother Pei really tries to stop me, this Zhou may have to exchange a few moves with Brother Pei. I’m just afraid that when the time comes, you and I will have to fight each other and benefit others.”
These words of his were both soft and hard, so his response was quite good.
Pei Wenxuan sneered and pointed to the people around him, “If you think so, you’re gravely mistaken. Ask them if they agree to let you go first.”
Zhou Yi turned his head and saw many pairs of eyes staring at him maliciously. Many of them had looks of eagerness on their faces, causing him to be shocked. He knew that he had caused a public wrath. Coupled with his previous performance, he had become a public enemy.
Immediately, his face turned pale. Just as Pei Wenxuan had said, he had deliberately let out a long roar in order to interrupt others from comprehending the Blood Shine Scripture so that they could waste more time, but who would have thought that he would actually shoot himself in the foot.
If no one stop him, he might have left, but Pei Wenxuan had insisted on keeping him here, so how could he have left?
If he really tried to force his way out, he would immediately be besieged.
Thinking up to this point, Zhou Yi grit his teeth and said, “Good, as Brother Pei says, I’ll wait for you. I just hope Brother Pei won’t be too slow!” He was also someone who knew when to yield. At this point, compared to being surrounded and attacked, he could only wait patiently. Even if everyone entered the palace in the middle of the lake, he would still have his own advantages. After all, compared to others, his attainments in the Blood Dao far exceeded theirs.
Pei Wenxuan smiled and nodded, “Don’t worry, I won’t keep you waiting.”
After the storm subsided, on the third island, besides Zhou Yi who was standing there with an ugly expression, the rest of the people continued to study the Blood Shine Scripture on the stone tablet.
Yang Kai was speechless.
Originally, he had wanted to let someone else enter the palace in the middle of the lake to scout the way, but with Pei Wenxuan’s actions, his plan had been foiled. There was no way to let anyone lead the way, and with the current situation, it was not appropriate to act too eye-catching, otherwise it was highly likely he would be attacked from all sides!
Among the cultivators here, besides Zhou Yi from the Great Thousand Blood Land, he had the greatest advantage. The rich Blood Qi allowed him to comprehend the Blood Shine Scripture more easily, so it could be said that he would be able to comprehend it in another two hours.
Now, it seemed that he had to hide his strength.
Sure enough, after two hours, Yang Kai had completely mastered the fourth volume of the Blood Shine Scripture. When he was on the small island, Yang Kai had discovered that the more vigorous a cultivator’s Blood Qi was, the easier it was for them to cultivate the Blood Shine Scripture. Now that he was here, this feeling was even more obvious.
Pretending he was still meditating, Yang Kai secretly used his Divine Sense to observe his surroundings.
Zhou Yi still stood there, not daring to act rashly for fear of receiving some kind of blow, but as time passed, his expression became uglier. Originally, he should have been exploring the palace in the middle of the lake, but now that he had been forced to stay behind by Pei Wenxuan, how could he not feel hatred?
Unfortunately, he had already incurred public wrath, so he didn’t dare act rashly.
During this time, more people arrived at the third island, but there weren’t many of them. Perhaps the cultivators who came here were the elites of the elites. Bu Lianzhong was among them, but his four fellow disciples were nowhere to be seen, most likely remaining on the second island.
After another three or four hours, Yang Kai suddenly saw a short man narrow his eyes slightly, his eyes flashing as he looked around.
Yang Kai couldn’t help laughing in surprise. Like him, this guy should have already mastered the Blood Shine Scripture and had the qualifications to go to the palace in the middle of the lake, but he didn’t immediately show it, obviously having his own plans.
Secretly sighing with emotion, the cultivators who could come to the third island were indeed crouching tigers and hidden dragons. Pei Wenxuan and Qu Huachang were still in the process of comprehending, but this short man had already completely comprehended it. It was unknown which family he came from.
After another two hours, Pei Wenxuan suddenly let out a long breath and opened his eyes, praising, “The Great Evolution Inextinguishable Blood Shine Scripture is truly profound!”
Saying so, he stood up and glanced over at the cultivators still gathered around the stone tablet, a flash of killing intent flashing across his eyes. In the end, he shook his head and strode towards the Blood Lake.
If possible, he wanted to kill everyone here and slowly explore the palace in the middle of the lake, but he also knew that it was impossible to kill everyone here.
Zhou Yi, who had been waiting for him for half a day, also followed after him.
The next moment, the short man Yang Kai noticed also stood up, along with three or four others.
Everyone glanced at each other before tacitly averting their eyes.
This time, five or six people were heading towards the palace at the center of the lake, naturally attracting the attention of many people, all of them raising their heads and revealing looks of envy.
Yang Kai looked at Qu Huachang with a puzzled expression. Logically speaking, Qu Huachang should have comprehend it by now, but seeing her frown, it was obvious she was still immersed in her comprehension, as if she had encountered some kind of problem.
Yang Kai was somewhat puzzled. She is a core disciple of Yin-Yang Core Disciple after all, and she had condensed a Sixth Grade forces. Regardless of whether it was her aptitude or comprehension, she is one of the best. How could she be so slow?
Thinking about it carefully, he felt that it might have something to do with her gender.
She is a woman, with a Yin physuqye, so her vitality wasn’t as vigorous. Perhaps it was because of this that her progress was slower than others. In the entire third island, besides Qu Huachang, there was no other woman.
Qu Huachang did not delay any longer than the others, and after an hour after Pei Wenxuan and the others left, she finally opened her eyes and looked at Yang Kai with tender affection.
Yang Kai raised his hand and said, “Let’s go.”
He was also afraid of this woman. When he was in the Great Ruins Boundary, he hadn’t been able to feel anything, but now that he had met her again, he didn’t know why she was so enthusiastic.
“En!” Qu Huachang nodded.
The two of them walked side by side into the blood lake and activated the Great Evolution Inextinguishable Blood Shine Scripture. Immediately, a bloody mist surged from their bodies to protect them.
Stepping onto the Blood Lake, the various disturbances and implications from the Blood Lake were several times greater than before. It was easy to imagine that if one didn’t fuse the Blood Shine Scripture on the four stone tablets, it would be impossible to pass through safely.
