After a period of time passed.
Nie Tian awoke from his cultivation. Seven of the fire crystals from the pile in front of him had been drained of their fire energy and had shattered into mundane pieces of rock.
Within his spirit sea, the whirlpool of fire energy clearly increased in size by a significant amount, after this round of cultivation.
The fire energy contained within it was much thicker and more refined compared to how it was before the fight with Jia Peng.
Previously, his internal organs had suffered a certain degree of injury as a result of the earth energy from Jia Peng's attack.
Nie Tian had deliberately eaten a large amount of spirit beast meat before cultivating. The pure fleshy power that came from the spirit beast meat seemed to have quietly spread throughout his body. He had unconsciously recovered from his injuries.
"You're awake?" Zheng Bin asked with a warm smile, standing about ten metres away. He wore a white shirt and had a handsome appearance.
Nie Tian rose and nodded his head, asking: "How long was I cultivating for?"
He didn't have any instruments that could tell time. However, from his experience in the Green Illusion Realm, he knew Zheng Bin had an instrument that could tell the time within mysterious realms.
"Two days." Zheng Bin replied.
Nie Tian rubbed his nose as he chuckled and said: "Seems our luck isn't bad. Surprisingly, no one managed to discover us during these two days."
"Haha," Zheng Bin also laughed, "I don't know why, but after we killed Jia Peng together, I'm suddenly not that scared anymore. Of course, you're the main reason. Your fearlessness when facing Jia Peng seems to have rubbed off on me. I feel that I'd be able to obtain a lifelong benefit, as long as I can live through this time's trial in the Heavenly Gate!"
"Oh, really?" Nie Tian was astonished.
"Yeah, you look like someone who completely doesn't understand the concept of fear. Naturally, it might be your trump cards that allows you to have this confidence." Zheng Bin stood up. He looked towards a meteorite that was floating in space as he spoke: "Perhaps we can go look around in other places."
This was him taking the initiative to leave.
If he was alone, he wouldn't have such confidence to urge him and Nie TIan to leave this currently safe place.
When Nie Tian was fighting against Jia Peng, the various strange methods that he had used made Zheng Bin feel that his safety would greatly increase as long as he was together with Nie Tian.
He was already determined. He would do his best to stick together with Nie Tian within the Heavenly Gate.
"That's fine." Nie Tian stood up in passing.
He was already at the beginning stages of cultivating the Flame Spirit Secret after these two days of cultivation. The injuries on his body had also healed fully.
The current him was at his peak state. He also an an extremely high confidence in the strength of the chaotic magnetic field.
He felt that he could try moving about.
After the duo had identical opinions, they started moving from the meteor that they had never dared to leave, towards the nearby meteor.
Within the icy river of stars, they would go to a meteor to search for life. After they found no signals of life, they would head towards a nearby meteor.
Time hurriedly passed. Within the blink of an eye, another three days passed.
During these three days, they had already moved far away from the meteorite they were originally on. However, they didn't find any signs of life.
All they found was a few frozen corpses. There were corpses of people from the Black Mist Palace, the Ghost Sect, and the Blood Sect who were ruthlessly killed.
Having already known about the cruel slaughter in the Heavenly Gate, Nie Tian was indifferent and unaffected by the corpses.
Zheng Bin knew that Jia Peng had killed his sect's elder brothers. Because of this, he maintained a calm mind when seeing the corpses.
While the duo cultivated, they carefully travelled through the meteorites without any destination in mind.
Nie Tian had released his mental awareness every so often, which allowed him to sense any abnormalities near him. He suddenly detected a dense bloody aura in front of him.
As he squinted his eyes, his mental awareness became an invisible tentacle that carefully searched outwards.
He gradually discovered the traces of the Earth Web's blood strings underneath the ground in front of him.
Nie Tian paused his steps. Furrowing his brows, he looked at the icy ground that was filled with scattered stones. He indicated for Zheng Bin to also stop.
"People from the Blood Sect?" Zheng Bin's expression faintly changed.
Nie Tian nodded his head, pointing towards the scattered stones in front of him as he said: "There are blood strings buried underground."
Since they were both at the the early Houtian Realm, Zheng Bin's mental awareness wasn't as powerful as his. He was unable to clearly sense the abnormalities within the ground in front of them.
However, through their earlier conversation, he knew that it was actually Nie Tian who discovered the underground movements while they were in the Green Illusion Realm, and that Nie Tian was the one who discovered Yu Tong secretly activating her technique.
Having viewed Nie Tian in a new light, he muttered to himself for a moment before asking: "Then what should we do? We...should we retreat?"
There were even more enormous meteorites near them. If they wanted to, they could definitely escape from the trial takers of the Blood Sect and continue exploring other meteorites.
"The Blood Sect…" Nie Tian pondered inwardly. He was clearly hesitating.
However, the mental awareness that he spread out had already discovered that someone was rapidly approaching.
He was incomparably familiar with that person.
"Yu Tong!" He had a pained expression.
He was very clear about how much Yu Tong hated him. She would immediately make a move once she saw him, without even saying anything beforehand.
"Let's go." Nie Tian turned his head, wanting to leave.
Once he heard that it was the Blood Sect's Yu Tong, Zheng Bin also had a headache. He also knew about the strength of that girl.
Zheng Bin hurriedly followed Nie Tian to leave this place quickly.
A scarlet blood light suddenly flew over. When it reached the extreme limit of the Earth Web, it suddenly stopped.
The person who arrived was Yu Tong.
She wore bloody clothes as she stood by the edge of the Earth Web, clearly cautious.
As if...she didn't dare to leave the area that the Earth Web covered.
When Yu Tong discovered that the escaping person was actually Nie Tian, she instantly turned nervous.
Her pupils were turned bloodshot in an instant, appearing demonic yet gorgeous.
However, the Blood Sect's Feng Luo suddenly appeared.
"Little Tong, don't be impulsive!" After seeing Yu Tong become enraged due to Nie Tian's appearance, he hastily stopped her: "The situation now is different! This isn't the Heaven Leaving Domain, and our Heaven Leaving Domain is about to go through a huge calamity! From now on, the seven sects of the Heaven Leaving Domain are going to experience a tribulation together! You must temporarily put aside the grudges you have with Nie Tian!"
After the early Xiantian Realm Feng Luo appeared, his face was somewhat pale. He seemed to have exhausted too much of his energy.
"Uncle Feng, I, I'm too angry!" Yu Tong clenched her teeth as she said.
"I understand." Feng Luo bitterly laughed. He fiercely glared at Nie Tian, when he thought about the despicable deeds that Nie Tian had done to Yu Tong when they were in the Scarlet Flame Mountain Range, "This brat truly deserves to be hated. After the Heaven Leaving Domain's calamity, I will arrange for you to have a fair fight with him. However...we shouldn't leave this place now, and we shouldn't waste any energy on Nie Tian!"
Yu Tong's demonic eyes were glaring at Nie Tian. However, she gradually calmed down through Feng Luo's advice.
Nie Tian, who was already escaping, suddenly stopped after hearing Feng Luo's words.
"What are you doing?" Zheng Bin anxiously said.
Yu Tong alone already gave him have a headache. If you added Feng Luo who was at the early Xiantian Realm, his only thought was to run away.
In the past, he would've thought that Nie Tian was foolishly causing trouble. He would definitely have abandoned Nie Tian to escape by himself.
However, he still decided to stay behind with Nie Tian, although he was confused.
"What Senior Feng Luo said is correct." Nie Tian turned around and spoke loudly to Feng Luo and Yu Tong, "In the past, the seven sects were like fire and water. It was natural that we started killing each other whenever we met. However, it's different now. The Heaven Leaving Domain will be invaded by demons. When we return, the Heaven Leaving Domain might already have turned into the playground of the demons."
"Even though the seven sects might be able to fight off the demons by joining forces, I'm afraid that their strength will definitely have decreased. When that happens, they would be attacked by those scheming people from the other domains."
"This is still the Heaven Leaving Domain."
"There are other people from the outer domains, like Jia Peng, that are inside the Heavenly Gate, killing the people from the Heaven Leaving Domain."
"Our seven sects have already been treated like this. If we continue this civil war, won't everyone else just laugh at us?"
As he said that, he slowly walked towards Feng Luo and Yu Tong.
Zheng Bin seemed to ponder for a while before following Nie Tian.
Feng Luo humped as he coldly looked at Nie Tian, "Although I dislike you, at least you've got some logic. However, you two are too weak. You don't have the qualifications to be with us. Because we all came from the Heaven Leaving Domain, I'll let you off. You can go fend for yourselves, whether you die or not."
He waved his hand, chasing Nie Tian and Zheng Bin away.
"Senior Feng Luo, we've killed the Kun Luo Domain's Jia Peng!" Zheng Bin shouted loudly, "By killing Jia Peng, do we have the qualifications to be with you?"
"Killed Jia Peng?" Feng Luo sneered, "Are you dreaming?"
Zheng Bin raised his hand as he revealed the seven light dots on his hand to Feng Luo, "Look for yourself!"
Feng Luo narrowed his eyes as he carefully looked at Zheng Bin. His interest was finally piqued, "Did you guys really kill Jia Peng?"
"Absolutely!" Zheng Bin said.
Feng Luo hesitated for a moment. Persuading Yu Tong with a low voice, he beckoned for them to come over as he said: "Come over then. I need you to give me a rational explanation. Let me know how you brats managed to kill Jia Peng, who had a cultivation of the middle Xiantian Realm, with your strength!"
"Okay!" Zheng Bin replied.
Nie Tian also walked over.
