Very soon, aside from Qianbei Ye, the rest of them had left the stone chamber. Everything was now silent.
Lingxiao laughed bitterly, "If you really can't do it, just give up on me, my death won't be regretted. You are the Azure Dragon and White Dragon's savior. I won't drag you down with me."
Gu Ruoyun did not speak but her clear, cold eyes flashed with determination. She slowly walked towards Lingxiao. At that moment, she let out all of the coercion from her body, turning it into a hurricane with spiraled around her surroundings.
Her hair danced in the wild winds, setting off her increasingly elegant and moving features. With every step she took, Lingxiao's heart grew heavier and heavier. The bitter smile on his elderly face became more obvious than ever.
The woman's fist landed fiercely on the stone wall of the formation. A strong crack sounded and the wall shook so much that her body was shaken as well. A gash appeared on her arm and fresh blood began to trickle down from the wound.
Qianbei Ye felt an ache in his heart and quickly stepped forward to support Gu Ruoyun's trembling body. He wrinkled his brows and said, "I'll do it."
Gu Ruoyun shook her head and her eyes were resolute, "Xiao Ye, your powers are indeed great but this formation can't be broken by brute force. Otherwise, Lingxiao would not have been locked in here for so many years. At that time, Zixie had informed me that there was only one way to break the formation! Only the power of the soul can do it! I have two souls within me so only I can break this formation."
She knew that Qianbei Ye was now very powerful but... This was something that only she who has experienced a rebirth can do.
For anyone else, even a Martial Saint was here, they would never be able to break this formation.
This was why Gu Ruoyun had not asked Qianbei Ye for help.
Boom, boom, boom!
Each time Gu Ruoyun's fist slammed on the shapeless formation, a ray of light would flash and strike back fiercely at her. Her arm was now drenched in blood but she never even furrowed her brow.
"Xiao Ye, help me retrieve a few rocks."
Gu Ruoyun staggered back and turned around to speak to Qianbei Ye.
Qianbei Ye gently nodded as his eyes swept towards Gu Ruoyun's wounded arm. Aside from a clear heartache in his eyes, most of it was an infinite amount of murderous intent! Clearly, he wanted to kill the person who had created this formation!
Gu Ruoyun's arm did not stop. After countless blows, the light from the formation began to grow weaker. A loud clacking sound could be heard as a transparent crack appeared in thin air.
As this formation could not be seen with the naked eye, the unknowing passerby who has seen the crack would have thought that a rip had formed in the air.
Very soon, Qianbei Ye returned with the stones and walked towards Gu Ruoyun.
Gu Ruoyun had no time to say anything to him. She took one of the stones and threw it at the mid-sized crack in the formation.
Then, she placed the other outside of the formation to create another formation.
"Now, I'm going to use my formation to smash through the formation that the other person had created. This way, Lingxiao would be able to leave this place."
That being said, this was also the most difficult part.
If the opposition was too powerful, both she and Lingxiao will lose their lives!
Boom, boom, boom!
Just as Gu Ruoyun finished arranging the formation, the ground began to shake. A ray of white light charged into the skies, enveloping the entire stone chamber.
