“Everyone, make haste, in another two hours, the Rainbow Drift will come.”
Ming Zhu spoke loudly, at the moment, she no longer had the bearing of a family’s young miss, her sleeves werepulled up, she was perspiring from head to toe, even her forehead had some grass stuck to it.
Everyone tensed up and quickened their pace, if they were not able to hide in the Stone Castle when the RainbowDrift appears, they could easily be killed. Tang Tian and his company did not know what the Rainbow Drift was, butseeing everyone being so anxious, they knew that it was something dangerous.
The Echo Hill Castle had many places that had collapsed, and were the most dangerous places, luckily for them, AhMo Li and a few others readily formed human cranes, huge boulders and stones were like nothing in their hands, andunder the guidance of the craftsman of the Xue Family, they quickly reinstated the damaged places.
The ladies of the Xue Residence looked at all the strong and able men with sparkling eyes. When Ming Zhu noticed it, her heart was moved, the Xue Family had the most females to marry off. Regardless of how she looked at it, the Null Division Prisoners were the best choice, seeing their robust and powerful bodies, all of them had vigorous blood that shone like flames, inside the dark and quiet Sin Domain, they were truly irresistible forces, and it was no wonder the ladies were secretly crushing on them.
The Null Division members were all high in spirits, disciplined and rigid, even when working manual labor, they didthings quietly, all of them giving their all.
Ming Zhu’s heart trembled, she could not help but glance at Tang Tian who was working as well, ~How did he createsuch a powerful elite group.~ She did not know much about armies, but in her heart, the Null Division was notinferior to Qin Zi Zhen’s Archer Unit.
Ming Zhu was filled with respect for Ghost Face Mask, seeing how he worked together with everyone else and nottaking a superior high ground. In the Sin Domain, they had strict hierarchies, forming upper and lower levels whichcould not be defied. There was no Patriarch who would work alongside everyone else like Ghost Face Mask. ~Nowonder his subordinates would be so loyal to
;him, Ghost Face Mask’s attitude is beyond good.~
She retracted her thoughts, and worked harder to clean the place up. If not for Ghost Face Mask and the rest, withjust the Xue Family women, it would take an unknown period of time just trying to reinstate Echo Hill Castle.
It would be their home for the long run.
Ming Zhu sighed in her mind, the family had escaped from battle, they had to start from nothing again, and all thehazy thoughts that were clouding her mind swept away, a hint of anticipating growing.
Tang Tian worked and studied the stones. They was different from the stones in the Purple Cuckoo City, they werecornelian in color, meticulously lubricated, revealing a layer of cloudlike patterns.
The craftsman called it Cornelian Cloud Stones, and were superior grade construction materials, with bettereffectiveness against Rainbow Drifts as compared to Woodash Stones. But its production rate was smaller, too fewfor the requirements of a city.
Cornelian Cloud Stones was even more difficult to manufacture as compared to Woodash Stones, its quality washarder, Law Threads could not be used to cut them, and could only rely on the pure power of the physique, WoodashStones’ quality was much softer, and thus its overall manufacturing process was easier.
Furthermore, Cornelian Cloud Stones had another flaw, which was, that after a certain period of time, its cloud lineswould slowly become vague, and at this time, they had to be polished again, and allow the cloud lines to appear,which also means that over a course of period, it needed maintenance and manpower.
So rarely were Cornelian Cloud Stones used to construct cities, but constructing houses or structures were morefrequent.
Although it was a flaw, but it also had advantages that Woodash Stones did not have. Its effectiveness on deflectingRainbow Drifts was more outstanding, and furthermore, it could emit a unique cloud mist that could nourish theflesh and blood, becoming beneficial for a human body.
Rustle rustle rustle, everyone was doing their best to polish the outer walls of Echo Hill Castle.
The wear and tear of time were slowly being polished off,= as beautiful cloud linings started to surface slowly,forming a whole, and like a living being, it flashed with a warm light aura, and nothing was more beautiful than it. Theblack cold mountain peak seemed to brighten up greatly. The faint warmth slowly emitted out, dissipating the coldintent of the mountain, causing everyone to feel more comfortable.
Echo Hill Castle, A castle that echoed the magnificence of the mountains.
Watching how the dim and ruined stone castle flourished back to life and became even more beautiful in their ownhands, everyone was filled with emotions.
Just at that time, Nie Qiu sensed something and raised his head: “There’s something approaching!”
Up above the dark and gloomy sky, a dazzling rainbow colored light belt diffused out, heading towards them.
“Rainbow Drift!” Someone exclaimed out.
Ming Zhu glanced at the sky and immediately called out: “Everyone, get into the castle now!”
All the servants who were initially clearing the weed and vines outside all rushed in. Tang Tian was extremelycurious, but still called out as well: “Everyone, go in and hide.”
Everyone rushed into the stone castle, while Tang Tian curiously stood by the window and observing the RainbowDrift.
Ming Zhu knew that Tang Tian was an outsider, and explained: “Sin Domain’s sky is where spatial laws are the mostchaotic. Every few days, the chaotic spatial laws would collide, and form a unique whirlpool. As it increases andbecomes bigger, it would be like an avalanche, where all the flowing law threads would convene, thus forming theRainbow Drift. Master can see how beautiful the Rainbow Drift is, that is because of the huge amounts of lawthreads.”
Before Ming Zhu’s voice echoed away, the Rainbow Drift arrived.
The sky started to release chaotic and rumbling sounds that were unpleasant to the ears, like rolling of thunderschurning back and forth, and owls hooting along, the fragmented sounds was extremely bone chilling.
The dazzling light aura, like a ray of light, swept across the entire mountain ridge.
Sand flew all over, and rocks turned and turned, it was like Doomsday.
When the rainbow light swept across Echo Hill Castle, the Cornelia Cloud Stones’ cloud lining seemed to beawakened, a faint mist emitted out from the stones, and in the blink of the eye, the entire Echo Hill Castle wascovered in a layer of thin mist.
Not being able to do anything to the mist, the light did not stop and continued sweeping ahead.
When the light swept past Echo Hill Castle, Tang Tian felt the blood in his body churning, and his face changed. Hecould clearly feel the chaos and extreme danger inside the rainbow colored lights.
Suddenly, a groan came out, Tang Tian turned to look, Nie Qiu’s face was blank white, his entire body trembling.Tang Tian immediately understood why, Nie Qiu’s senses were extremely acute, and thus the influence due to thechaos and danger from the Rainbow Drift could affect him greater.
Tang Tian bellowed: “Hold on, it’s good for you!”
Hearing that, Nie Qiu was jolted, he immediately forced himself to sit cross legged on the ground.
Ming Zhu looked at Nie Qiu in surprise, she did not understand, with the cloud stones as protection, no one should be affected. She had noticed Nie Qiu earlier, in the Null Division, he was extremely eye catching, he was different from all the built and strong members, he was skinny and thin, and even incomparable to some of the ladies of the Xue family. But the most prominent feature of his was that his eyes, that could not see.
In the Sin Domain, surviving was extremely cruel, and disabled people would always live shorter. For someone whohad lost vision in both eyes, he would not be able to survive in Sin Domain.
But Ming Zhu realised in shock that Nie Qiu held a high position in Null Division, even Ghost Face Mask treated hissuggestions with respect. Ming Zhu then understood that Nie Qiu had other abilities.
Tang Tian did not shout recklessly, due to Nie Qiu being blind, his awareness was naturally sharp, and adding hisstrengthening when growing up, even Tang Tian was inferior to him. After entering Sin Domain, Nie Qiu’s energywas completely crippled, but his senses had shot up to a whole new level.
And that was why, even though Nie Qiu was protected by the Cornelian Cloud Stones, he was still able to sense thechaotic flow of Laws, and was thus influenced by it. Nie Qiu was now bearing the torture of it, but at the same time itwas a great way to temper the mind.
The tempering of the mind was more difficult than training in Laws.
~Maybe Nie Qiu will find a new dao path to train in.~
Tang Tian retracted his gaze, looking outside of the castle, wherever the light swept, the mountain ridge wouldproduce countless of cracks, and the originally flourished trees would become bare, the leaves would fall all over.Even the vines would be destroyed.
Tang Tian suddenly frowned: “This Rainbow drift comes often, but why can the plants still grow so lusciously?”
He remembered very clearly that when they just arrived, there were not many trees on the ridges, but they wereoverflowing with leaves.
“Master does not know about this, but these wild living organisms that thrive in the outside has their own unique ways of surviving.” This time, the one who spoke was Tie Xie, he had traversed the lands and was well versed in many things: “For example, that Mosquito Fruit Tree, Master might see that it is currently dying, but its roots system is extremely well developed, expanding out to almost a hectare radius, as long as the roots are not pulled, their life essence will not be hurt, and by the next day, they can produce sprouts. And for those Steel Line Vines, their Vitality force is even stronger, as long as the Rainbow Drift ends, they will start growing again. All these plants know how to use the Rainbow Drift, for example that tree called the Fallen Tree. It has that name because as long as the Rainbow Drift passes through it, its branches will be cut off, and the branches that are cut off will continue flying until they fall onto the ground, and with that, they can grow again. That’s how they reproduce.”
Tang Tian was dumbstruck, and only felt that the world was so huge, and there were all sorts of oddities.
“Everything outside is extremely dangerous.” Tie Xie was very experienced: “All ordinary beasts know how to hidefrom the Rainbow Drift. To survive in the Sin Domain, every living thing has their own way of surviving. At night, wehave to employ people to stand guard, because after the rainbow drift, the wild beasts in the mountains will moverecklessly. Some will look for the shattered plants, some to hunt for food. Now that we are further away from PurpleCuckoo City, the wild beasts here are definitely not small in numbers. I will take the night guard tonight, master,employ a few more people with me, those that can conform well.”
Tie Xie initiated the volunteering, his attitude extremely proactive.
The performance of the Null Division had shaken him to an unprecedented level. If all the Null Division, were likethat, Tie Xie felt that no one else could tame them. He sort of understood why the Lu Family would exchange the200 prisoners for the Xue Family. Most likely, they had already found out about this point.
At the start, him following Ghost Face Mask was a helpless decision, but now, Tie Xie was secretly brimming withanticipation.
~Once the entire Null Division combines, they will definitely be able to sweep the entire Sin Domain.~
Tang Tian got Han Bing Ning to follow Tie Xie to stand guard at night. With Tie Xie’s abundant experience and hisfamiliarity with the various wild beasts of Sin Domain, along with Han Bing Ning who was currently the expertamongst Tang Tian’s comrades.
As for the others, Tang Tian had no intention to waste time, he wanted them to understand the way Sin Domainfought.
Every moment counts.
