Bei Bei said, "Little junior, go and rest first. We'll leave first thing tomorrow morning. How long do you think it will take before we return?"
Huo Yuhao replied, "If we're fast, we'll take three to five days. Even if we're slow, we shouldn't take more than half a month."
After pondering for a moment, Bei Bei said, "Alright, it's better to finish it as quickly as possible. I'll go and settle things first."
As he spoke, Bei Bei charged out. In addition to the anxious look in his eyes, he was also excited.
He Caitou was confused as he asked Huo Yuhao, "Little junior, what's with eldest senior? What are you bringing him to do? He seems very agitated!"
Huo Yuhao smiled and whispered a few words in his ears. He Caitou was only enlightened after that. After sighing, he said, "Yes! No matter what, we have to help him!"
On the second morning, dawn had only just arrived before two figures left the Tang Sect. After they quickly left Shrek City, they immediately used their flying-type soul tools to ascend into the air, and rapidly headed north.
Huo Yuhao looked at Bei Bei and couldn't help but say, "Eldest senior, you seem to have languished recently. You must watch your body!"
Bei Bei laughed bitterly. "There are so many things to settle in the sect. How do I have time to rest?"
He was right. Rescuing the hostages, Huo Yuhao's disappearance, the surge of the beast wave, and the Tang Sect's expansion came one after another. As the sect leader of the Tang Sect, he had to settle everything. Under such a situation, he didn't have time to rest.
Huo Yuhao smiled and said, "Eldest senior, I have to help you find those things no matter what."
There was naturally only one reason why Bei Bei would take time off from his busy schedule to leave Shrek City...Tang Ya!
Bei Bei's reward in the Yin-Yang Love Querying Valley was learning the two types of plants that could help Tang Ya recover. Huo Yuhao had seen one of them before, the Delicate Silk Immortal, and he was certain that the Delicate Silk Immortal knew the other type of plant.
Before he went to see Wang Dong'er, he wanted to help Bei Bei fulfill his wish first. After all, he didn't know how long he would take to return after going to the Clear Sky Sect. This was because he had something else to do apart from accompanying Wang Dong'er. This issue was bound to take up a lot of his time.
Now that the construction of the Tang Sect was on the right track, and the Soul Tool Research Institute was helmed by Teacher Xuan, Huo Yuhao had enough time to get away from the Sect. However, he understood how tormented Bei Bei was feeling, so he wanted to bring Bei Bei to the Setting Sun Forest before he went to the Clear Sky Sect.
As he flew in the direction of the Setting Sun Forest, Huo Yuhao felt a little emotional. The last time he went to the Setting Sun Forest, he was there to seek a Yearning Heartbroken Grass for Wang Dong'er. Wang Qiu'er was the one who had accompanied him there.
Wang Dong'er and Wang Qiu'er were no longer by his side. Wang Dong'er was in a deep sleep, while Wang Qiu'er had sacrificed herself for him. As he thought of this, Huo Yuhao felt a pain in his heart.
He bit his tongue in a bid to use the pain that he felt to distract himself from the torment in his heart. He kept on reminding himself that he had to be resilient. It was only by remaining resilient that he could continue to walk this rough road. He believed that there was light at the end of the tunnel, and Wang Dong'er would eventually wake up.
That day, he had promised the Ice Empress and Skydream Iceworm that he would try to become a god in the future. It wasn't just to help them; he was also helping himself. This was because Wang Qiu'er might also have the possibility of being revived if he became a god.
Right now, Huo Yuhao's greatest hope, apart from avenging his mother, was to have Wang Dong'er and Wang Qiu'er alive by his side.
He was now a Soul Sage, and the only Soul Sage among the members of Shrek's Seven Monsters. In terms of cultivation, he had caught up with the rest and overtaken them.
However, Bei Bei wasn't lousy, either. He wasn't far from being a Soul Sage. As the eldest senior of the Tang Sect, his soul power had greatly increased since he exited the Yin-Yang Love Querying Valley. Along with his daily, tireless cultivation, he was now around Rank 68. Apart from Huo Yuhao, he was the strongest member of Shrek's Seven Monsters.
Both of them were using Class 6 flying-type soul tools right now, and flying incredibly fast.
They only landed and rested after flying for close to four hours. After resting, they continued on their journey again.
They approached the Setting Sun Forest before noon.
Huo Yuhao led Bei Bei into the Setting Sun Forest. With his previous experience, he knew that there were very few soul beasts residing in this forest. In terms of strong soul beasts, they were mostly in the Icefire Yin Yang Well. Although those soul beasts were plant-type, their cultivations weren't low.
The poisonous miasma released by the Jade Phosphorus Flower of the Seven Absolutes was ineffective against Huo Yuhao's Ultimate Ice. Huo Yuhao proceeded in a straight line directly towards the mountain valley where the Icefire Yin Yang Well was located.
Bei Bei was astonished when he saw the seven-colored poisonous miasma around him slowly turn jade-green. If not for Huo Yuhao's Domain of Perpetual Ice as protection, even a Titled Douluo would have been completely corroded by the poison!
"Little junior, how did you enter the last time? This place is too dangerous!" Bei Bei exclaimed in shock when he saw nothing growing around this place; even the soil was seven-colored!
Huo Yuhao forced a laugh. "Ultimate Ice is the jinx of all poisons. Don't worry, eldest senior. We'll be fine. Let's go in."
Huo Yuhao's Ultimate Ice created a path for them to enter, and the Jade Phosphorous Flowers of the Seven and Nine Absolutes shrank back into buds under the control of Huo Yuhao's immense spiritual power. After that, he flew along towards the Icefire Yin Yang Well with Bei Bei.
From the air, the view of the Icefire Yin Yang Well, which resembled a mortal paradise, was presented in front of them.
Even though this place wasn't filled with prosperous life energy like the Slaughtering Grounds in the Great Star Dou Forest, it was still a miraculous place.
Ice and fire co-existed in this place, and there were all types of valuable plants that filled every corner of the mountain valley. This was the first time Bei Bei had seen this, and he was completely in a daze.
All the plant-type soul beasts around the well started to react when they sensed outsiders approaching. However, they soon felt the spiritual aura that Huo Yuhao released.
Huo Yuhao was no longer like before. There were many hundred-thousand-year plant-type soul beasts here. However, their cultivation was different from hundred-thousand-year animal-type soul beasts, as they only had great strength in their own domains. In terms of fighting strength, they were far inferior to hundred-thousand-year animal-type soul beasts. They were only strong because of the Icefire Yin Yang well.
With Huo Yuhao's current abilities, he wasn't afraid of these soul beasts. In addition, he even controlled the power of destiny.
Initially, Wang Qiu'er had once threatened the Delicate Silk Immortal. As the Emperor Beast, she controlled the destiny of all the soul beast habitats on the continent. She used this to threaten the Delicate Silk Immortal. Even though the Great Star Dou Forest was the main place, it was still possible for her to destroy the destiny of the Icefire Yin Yang Well. She only had to pay a certain price for that to happen.
Given that, how would the soul beasts here dare to rile Wang Qiu'er? If not for her threat, she wouldn't have found the second Yearning Heartbroken Grass.
"Why are you here again?" The Delicate Silk Immortal sounded slightly annoyed.
No plants liked humans that were aggressive or destructive. This was even more applicable for valuable immortal herbs like them.
Seeing that Huo Yuhao had brought a stranger too, the Delicate Silk Immortal wasn't very happy.
Huo Yuhao didn't utter a sound. His Eye of Destiny slowly opened, and rose-gold sunray patterns caused his forehead to turn extremely dazzling. A weird rose-gold ring started to spread from his forehead. After he came the last time, Huo Yuhao had developed some understanding of these plant-type soul beasts. He knew he had to go hard on them. Without threatening them with his abilities, it was impossible to obtain their help.
Indeed, all the immortal and medicinal herbs that had turned into plant-type soul beasts were jolted awake when they sensed the immense spiritual undulations that were filled with the aura of destiny. Suddenly, there were several spiritual intents filled with fear that spreading towards Huo Yuhao.
Huo Yuhao and Bei Bei descended, and the plants opened a path for them to land.
"You You, we meet again," Huo Yuhao said to the Delicate Silk Immortal. Bei Bei's eyes had already brightened by this point. Wasn't this Delicate Silk Immortal one of the plants that the Yin-Yang Love Querying Valley had mentioned? Furthermore, this Delicate Silk Immortal seemed even larger than the image he saw.
The Delicate Silk Immortal was astonished, "You, why do you control the power of destiny now? Impossible! The power of destiny can't be taken away. You, you, you…"
She wasn't the only one who was shocked. All the surrounding plant-type soul beasts started to panic.
Huo Yuhao replied calmly, "You don't need to know this, and I don't want to be reminded, either. If I'm not wrong, you said that I could take away seven types of plants from here the last time I was here. Am I right?"
The Delicate Silk Immortal nodded gently. "Yes, you can take away seven types of plants since you passed Tang San's test."
Huo Yuhao replied, "Good. I'm here today to take away another five types of plants. We took two stalks of Yearning Heartbroken Grass last time, so this means I'm left with five types of plants to take. Am I right?"
"No, you are not!" the Delicate Silk Immortal immediately answered. "You also consumed a Fullmoon Autumn Dew!"
