“Xiao Bai wants to take the saint artifact in. If that was possible, it could store Jian Chen and the others into the artifact. Then, it can bring them out. It’s a pity that the saint artifact can’t enter,” You Yue murmured softly. She had understood the white tiger’s intentions very quickly.
The saint artifact spun, as it shone with a hazy golden light by the side of the formation, before returning to the air above You Yue. It needed to keep You Yue safe.
In the formation space, the white tiger opened its mouth. It knew that the saint artifact did not enter the formation with it, and it immediately growled at the formation. It seemed to be filled with frustration.
Jian Chen understood the familiar white tiger’s intentions at first thought after he saw its behavior. He said, “Xiao Bai, the formation that traps us is just too powerful. We can’t break it even when we all work together. All we can do now is wait for someone outside to gain control of the divine hall, which will allow them to control the divine hall as well. Immediately take You Yue and Kara Liwei into the depths of the divine hall, to the control center.”
The white tiger looked at Jian Chen, as he worked hard to control his Chaotic Force and worry appeared in its eyes. Afterward, it produced a deep growl, as if it had agreed to Jian Chen’s instructions.
“Xiao Bai, tell the artifact spirit after you get out to not let senior Rui Jin out no matter what. Keep him in the artifact space, until you leave the divine hall. Also, Xie Wang, who followed me in the sea realm, is still cultivating inside the artifact space. Get the artifact spirit to contact him and get him to protect you all as you venture into the depths…” Jian Chen gave a long list of orders to the white tiger. Whether the people trapped in the formation could leave would completely depend on the people outside. If they failed, all the Saint Kings inside would die.
The white tiger left the artifact space with Jian Chen’s words. It arrived outside and recounted everything that Jian Chen had said, word by word, to the artifact spirit.
Although the white tiger could not speak human tongue, the artifact spirit could understand him since he was a spirit. He immediately informed You Yue and Kara Liwei of Jian Chen’s current situation.
You Yue immediately paled when she learned that Jian Chen was currently in danger. Her face was filled with anxiety and deep worry, as she lost her normal composure.
Kara Liwei was also anxious, but she tried as hard as she could to keep her composure. She comforted You Yue, “Sister You Yue, don’t worry. Don’t we still have ways to save Jian Chen? As long as we find the control center of the divine hall, we’ll be able to save Jian Chen without him suffering any harm at all.”
You Yue tightly clenched her jade-like hands. Her palms were sweaty. Although there was still a way for them to save Jian Chen, how were they supposed to pass through the many obstacles of the divine hall to reach the control center with these brutal Saint Rulers?
The white tiger had already entered the saint artifact and told Rui Jin about what had happened outside. Rui Jin was still currently filling the three Flaming Jadeites with energy. Immediately, he stopped what he was doing when he learned about what was happening outside, and he furrowed his brows.
“Rui Jin, there’s only one way to save master, and that’s to get the mistress to gain control over the divine hall and shut down the formation. Master plans to call a Ninth Heavenly Layer Saint Ruler from the Sea race to go out and assist mistress in controlling the divine hall, but I just don’t trust this person. Once he leaves the artifact space, I can’t do anything to him either. I’ve come to you especially this time to leave a restriction within that person, just in case,” the artifact spirit said to Rui Jin.
Rui Jin agreed without any extra thought, “There are many secret techniques of my Dragon clan, and there are quite a few among them for controlling people. Bring that Sea race person over.”
Xie Wang was currently in seclusion, as he practiced the Octoterra Emperor’s cultivation method. The artifact spirit forcefully roused him and sent him to Rui Jin’s side.
“Xie Wang, master has orders for you to immediately leave this space and assist the mistress in taking this divine hall. However, to prevent you from going overboard in some areas, we need to leave a restriction within you. As long as you focus on assisting the mistress, nothing will happen to you…” The artifact summarized. He explained the task as well as the rough situation outside to Xie Wang, so that he could have some understanding.
Xie Wang’s eyes immediately lit up when he heard about the Bright Moon Divine Hall. He understood the power of divine halls extremely well, and knew that once someone possessed a divine hall, they could go up against 16th Star experts. No one could threaten the owner of the divine hall in anyway given that they did not come across emperors.
Although the Bright Moon Divine Hall tempted Xie Wang, he dismissed these thoughts very quickly and calmed down. He still remembers his current situation, so he forcefully suppressed his itching desire. He said, “Don’t worry. I, Xie Wang, am not a person who returns kindness with animosity. Since Jian Chen gave me the invaluable cultivation method of the Octoterra Emperor without even hesitating, I will never do anything that betrays Jian Chen in this life! If I do, I am willing to suffer the punishment of utter annihilation,” Xie Wang said righteously. His tone was extremely resolute.
“Just in case, I will be leaving a restriction within you. If you really do something unaccounted for, I will wipe out your soul in an instant. I will personally remove it after you’ve accomplished your task.” Rui Jin stared at Xie Wang with bright eyes.
Although Xie Wang had never seen Rui Jin before, Rui Jin was definitely someone that belonged on Jian Chen’s side since he could appear here. He could even vaguely feel a pressure that made him shiver, which allowed him to know that the middle-aged man before him was definitely a powerful and terrifying expert.
Xie Wang did not show any resistance toward Rui Jin’s intentions of planting a restriction within him. He accepted it calmly, as he had no other choice.
Afterward, Rui Jin planted a restriction on Xie Wang’s soul through a secret technique of the Dragon clan. Xie Wang’s life was basically in Rui Jin’s hand with the restriction, as Rui Jin only needed a single thought to wipe out Xie Wang’s soul if he did anything unexpected.
Xie Wang and the white tiger left the artifact space together and appeared beside You Yue. You Yue had already learned of Xie Wang’s identity in detail from the artifact spirit, so she did not become surprised when she saw him. She only observed him curiously, as this was her first time meeting a member of the Sea race.
“Is this Jian Chen’s woman? I never thought that her strength would be this bad.” Xie Wang observed You Yue curiously as well, and he immediately felt a sliver of surprise when he saw her strength.
“You Yue greets senior Xie Wang. I shall be in your care.” You Yue greeted Xie Wang politely with a bow and did not refer to him in the casual fashion that Jian Chen did.
Xie Wang gained a good impression of You Yue with how she behaved. He laughed aloud and said, “You’re Jian Chen’s woman, so you’re not an outsider any way. There’s no need for us to be so polite, so just spare the terms of seniority. Just call me Xie Wang.”
Xie Wang and You Yue spoke some more, before focusing on the main problem. Afterward, they left for the depths of the divine hall with the white tiger and Kara Liwei.
Quite a few Saint Rulers and Heaven Saint Masters had already entered the depths before them when You Yue’s group had left. There were also some Heaven Saint Masters and Class 6 Radiant Saint Masters who had given up on that idea and directly backed out of the divine hall. They spread the news of all the trapped Saint Kings in the divine hall at the same time.
There were still quite a lot of people floating in the cool night sky outside the divine hall. This included the people from the Radiant Saint Master, such as the president and the grand elder. As Class 7 Radiant Saint Masters, they did not enter the divine hall. Class 7 Radiant Saint Masters enjoyed exalted statuses on the Tian Yuan Continent, which were in no shape or form below Saint Kings. Also, they never took part in any of the killings and battles on the continent, so the Bright Moon Divine Hall did not possess any great use to them. They did not have the need at all to risk their lives and compete for the divine hall.
“What? All the Saint Kings that entered have been trapped?” The people from the union and the other people in the crowd all changed in expressions when they heard this news. They all felt rather perturbed, as the fear in their gazes toward the divine hall deepened.
“The formation of the divine hall only targets Saint Kings and those beyond Saint King. Heaven Saint Masters and Saint Rulers are resistant to the attacks of the divine hall,” a Heaven Saint Master who had exited said loudly.
With that, the Saint King who had just hurried over through Space Gates and were about to enter the divine hall immediately halted. They became torn between surprise and suspicion.
Suddenly, his eyes froze and he stared fixedly at the roof of the divine hall.
A middle-aged man in white robes stood proudly at the highest point of the divine hall. No one knew exactly when he had appeared.
The man seemed to have fused with the surrounding space, becoming a part of the surroundings. No one actually discovered him, as he stood in such a brazen fashion on top of the divine hall other than the Saint King. He seemed to be transparent, which made it extremely easy for people to miss him.
“The path lord of carnal desires!” The Saint King recognized the man at first glance, and his eyes narrowed suddenly.
In that moment, the evil-looking face of the path lord was rather pale. He stood rather haggardly on the top of the divine hall, as he mumbled to himself, “Fairy Hao Yue sure is extravagant to collect material from the moon to build such a powerful divine hall. The Moonlight Force within this divine hall is weird and powerful. Also, the toughness of the divine hall cannot be compared with any ordinary divine hall. Even if I want to break through it, it’ll be extremely difficult.”
“It’s a pity that I the origin energy injured me last time. Origin energy is just too powerful. I can’t recover in such a short amount of time, and my strength is greatly reduced. Otherwise, I’d like to see what fairy Hao Yue had prepared all those years ago in the divine hall,” the path lord said with some regret. Afterward, he vanished.
