Chapter 369: The Lake

The group AiYa and CaiYi darted straight to the small island.

Borg, Lao Li, LaoLun, and CaiYi wore ruthless looks on their faces and released murderous auras. They obviously didn’t have good intentions.

ShiYan was lagging behind.

However, he was not in a hurry. He could hear the noise of the battle coming from the small island while he was walking over with a moderate speed and a comfortable look.

When he came to the lake, he saw the three warriors had already stopped breathing.

The five of them were surrounding the three dead bodies, carefully searching their bodies, and took out the Storage Ring from their fingers.

AiYa checked the body of the Second Sky of Nirvana Realm warrior. CaiYi and Borg checked one of the First Sky of Nirvana Realm warriors. The brothers LaoLun were searching the last one. The five of them carefully flipped the corpses as if they didn’t want to miss any precious treasures.

ShiYan walked over but kept a distance with the five of them and didn’t say a word.

A flow of auras from the three dead bodies flew toward him, quietly penetrating his acupuncture points, making his spirit comfortable. He didn’t struggle for credit nor spoils; he didn’t need to take action either. The auras of those three warriors were more precious to him than the Demon Crystals in their Storage Rings.

In the Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist, Profound Qi was the most valuable and essential element.

If he released his strength to fight with these three Nirvana Realm warriors, he believed that they would have had no chance of surviving. However, to kill these three people, he would have to consume a significant amount of his forces, and the most important thing was he would probably reveal his real strength. It was not something he wanted.

Without having wasted any Profound Qi, he still had harvested the auras of these three warriors. No matter what people thought about this, it was the most cost-effective benefit that he could have.

Watching the five people searching the dead bodies while feeling the auras pouring into his body, ShiYan was quite joyful.

It was at this moment that he really believed in Borg’s words.

AiYa was not a good person indeed. Before, this girl hadn’t killed him, but she had even offered him a piece of Demon Crystal, which was clearly unreasonable.

In connection with what Borg had told him, he believed that AiYa indeed originally had another plan.

In the eyes of such people like AiYa and CaiYi, the Endless Sea was just a barbaric land, and thus, the warriors of the Endless Sea were useless in the Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist as they didn’t have any precious treasures. That was the reason why they didn’t want to waste their Profound Qi to kill him.

However, this time was different.

There was more than one warrior. Moreover, they had just killed the other two warriors next to the lake, so it was obvious that they had killed to steal. In the eyes of AiYa and CaiYi, these three people were worth consideration. Therefore, they had to die.

The group of AiYa, CaiYi, and the other three carefully searched for a while. The two brothers LaoLi slightly chuckled, displayed a happy face as they seemed to be satisfied with the harvest.

AiYa’s and CaiYi’s faces remained normal. Thus, ShiYan guessed they didn’t get a good fortune.

Borg cursed under his breath as he didn’t seem to harvest anything valuable. As CaiYi and Borg were on the same team, ShiYan still could guess that they didn’t harvest much through Borg’s curses although CaiYi’s face didn’t change.

After a long while observing, he had already absorbed all of the auras from the three warriors.

ShiYan secretly sensed the movements inside his acupuncture points and felt assured after having been certain that the auras of these three warriors were still within his body’s capacity. He then continued looking at the five people.

"ShiYan, bring these corpses away from here. It is not easy to find a lake. We have to take a bath," CaiYi smiled sweetly looking at him, asking him to handle the corpses.

AiYa frowned while her eyes slightly brightened up. She seemed to have the intention of taking a bath as well.

Women naturally loved cleanliness; especially those who were exceptionally beautiful like AiYa and CaiYi. If they were not in the Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist, these two girls would have bathed themselves and taken care of their appearance every day. And now, as there was a lake here, it was no wonder why both of them were excited.

"Ok." ShiYan beamed a faint smile, obediently walked over, took the three bloody corpses, and quickly flew away.

The corpses, whose auras had completely been drained by ShiYan, would soon dehydrate and shrivel. He had just thought of how to cover this situation, and thus, what CaiYi asked him to do was exactly what he needed right now. So, he was very pleased to do this task.

CaiYi was satisfied with ShiYan’s hard work. After he had left, she revealed a sweet smile and said, "Having a person in the team who will die for us in danger at critical times and take care of miscellaneous things at other times is not bad."

While talking, CaiYi looked toward AiYa but didn’t catch any reaction from her. She coldly snorted inside her heart, staring at Borg, then indifferently looked at LaoLi, LaoLun and said, "We girls want to take a bath. Should you three guys go away?"

The two brothers LaoLi brightly smiled, nodded and walked away.

Borg was a little bit stunned, couldn’t help but look at AiYa and ask, "Sister, should you wait until Profound Qi is restored and then wash up?"

"It has been a long time since I have taken a bath. Finding a clean lake is hard. I can’t wait anymore." After talking, CaiYi threw a glance at AiYa, smiled and said, "AiYa, do you want to wait?"

AiYa nodded indifferently, coldly looked at Borg with a frown and said, "You are not going to wash up yet?"

Borg bowed his head, secretly cursed, turned around, and left.

ShiYan dragged the three dead bodies to a remote mountain quite far away from the lake.

After having thrown these five bodies aside, he sat down, feeling the refining process inside his acupuncture points.

After having entered the Second Sky of Nirvana Realm, the auras of the warriors who had the same level as his were not vigorous for him anymore. The time the Mystery Martial Spirit took to purify it was not too long.

When he had still been in the Hengluo Sea, he had killed quite a number of Nirvana Realm warriors. Thus, he understood well about the purification time that the Mystery Martial Spirit required.

He knew that the auras of those three dead warriors would be purified completely after one or two hours maximum.

He believed that the negative emotions that had been dragged along with their auras would not affect his mind and push him into a violent situation.

Because of this self-confidence, he was not in a hurry but waited in silence instead.

Half an hour later.

The screams of Borg and the two brothers LaoLi suddenly came up from the lake.

ShiYan frowned, stood up with suspicion and quickly flew over.

Not long after that, when he arrived at the lake, he saw the three people Borg, LaoLi, and LaoLun walking around the lake. Borg was still shouting, "Sister!"

The two brothers LaoLi and LaoLun knitted their eyebrows and hurriedly asked when they saw ShiYan, "Have you seen AiYa and CaiYi?"

ShiYan shook his head with surprise, "Aren’t they washing up in the lake? What happened? They have gone missing?"

"Half an hour already." Borg spoke up with a gloomy face, "I had been waiting for her for a while, so I didn’t feel right and went to the lake to call her. But she didn’t respond. I am worried that she might have been in some accident. However, after checking around the lake, I couldn’t find my sister or AiYa."

"How could it be?" ShiYan continued with a surprised look on his face, "I just threw the five corpses away and was resting a bit, but I didn’t see anyone coming or leaving. AiYa and CaiYi certainly didn’t go in my direction."

Borg’s face changed. He said, "Except for your direction, we have searched all other directions. Have they possibly left the island?"

"Impossible." LaoLi and LaoLun shook their heads simultaneously.

"They just took a bath in the lake. Since they disappeared strangely, could they be… under the water?" ShiYan pointed to the lake.

Borg, LaoLi, and Lao Lun were all startled, rolled their eyes looking at the clear lake, and suddenly felt a little uneasy.

None of them moved. They were in a daze for a while and then looked at him.

ShiYan cursed inside his heart. He had soon known that although these three people looked friendly with him, they all had their purposes. Obviously, as they were aware that AiYa’s and CaiYi’s missing case should be somehow related to this lake, they all were afraid of the lake, and thus they didn’t dare to search it.

Faintly sneering, ShiYan didn’t show emotion on his face, pretended not to see their eyes, and walked to the lake. He frowned and squatted down, reached out his left hand toward the lake to see if there was anything abnormal inside it.

Although Borg, LaoLi, and LaoLun were in the Second Sky of Nirvana Realm, he was not afraid of them. He wanted to see the lake’s abnormality first, and he then would decide if he should go back and kill those three people or enter the lake to check.

He slowly stretched his hand into the lake, quietly searched for the abnormal fluctuations under the lake. Suddenly, a huge force came from the depth of the lake. This force was so powerful that ShiYan’s face changed instantly. He wanted to retract his hand, but it was too late.

It was as if there was a certain kind of demon under the lake pulling his arm and dragging him into the water.

"Splash."

A trace of horror appeared on ShiYan’s face when he fell into the lake and quickly disappeared without leaving any trace.
