Chapter 431: Shi Yan’s influence

Translator: Sigma Editor: Sigma
Four eyes met, and both of them fell into silence all of a sudden.

The atmosphere seemed to be bizarre.

"You are the Holy Maiden of the Heaven Lake Divine Land. As long as the Heaven Lake Divine Land does not perish, you still can keep this noble position and receive the worship from these inferior fellows," Shi Yan contemplated for a while and then said calmly. "The reason why I’m here in front of you now is that I’m sure you are not narrow-minded, and perhaps you can tell me the current situation of the Endless Sea."

"What do you want to know?" Qu Yan Qing frowned and asked.

"I only know that the Yuanluo Sea and the Kyara Sea have belonged to the Demon Dwellers and Dark Dwellers. I’m not sure about the Three Gods Sect, the Gu family, and the Dongfeng family. I’m curious where these three forces are now. Since the Demon Dwellers have already occupied the Yuanluo Sea, they obviously need some place to cultivate."

"The Dongfeng family is temporarily settling down in the Black Sea. The Gus went to the Tuta Sea to rely on the Cao family. As for the Three Gods Sect…"

Qu Yan Qing hesitated a little bit and then said, "The Three Gods Sect’s disciples don’t stay in the Endless Sea. According to our speculation, they are probably staying hidden in the seabed and observing the situation discreetly, waiting for the Demon Dwellers, the Dark Dwellers, and us to die, so that they will then come out from the ocean floor."

"Tell me about the situation this year then."

Qu Yan Qing slowly nodded and told him all about the situation that she knew.

As Shi Yan had been staying in the Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist for one year, he completely lost connection with the Endless Sea and didn’t know anything about its situation.

One year ago, not long after he had left the Endless Sea, the Heavenly Gate of the Demon Area and the Kyara Sea was fully opened. Meanwhile, the Corpse Soul Bridge had been extended from the Demon Area to the Kyara Sea.

The true bodies of the Demon Kings Bo Xun and Chi Yan had appeared in the Kyara Sea. They also brought along thousands of elite warriors. In just a week, the Demon Dwellers had arrived the Yuanluo Sea and wiped out all the obstacles there.

During this period, Ouyang Lou Shuang of the Three Gods Sect had revealed her talent. She had used the Silver Moon Martial Spirit that had been condensed from the thousand-year moonlight to fight Bo Xun. After half a day of fighting, the Demon King couldn’t resist any longer. He was defeated.

That was why the Three Gods Sect withdrew from the Yuanluo Sea. One part of them had sneaked to the seabed while the other part stayed hidden in the holy land. It had been a long time since they showed up from the sea.

Even Ouyang Lou Shuang was also defeated. Gu Shao and Dongfeng Jue could only avoid the Demon Dwellers’ attack, dividing their forces and moving to the Tuta Sea and the Black Sea.

Many civilians became the sacrifices, miserably beheaded by the Demon Dwellers. Their corpses were everywhere.

Cao Qiu Dao and Yang Yi Tian had to come out and guard at the Black Sea and the Tuta Sea. They gathered all forces in the Endless Sea to cope with the invasion of the Demon Dwellers.

Ouyang Lou Shuang often appeared during this time. Her fighting ability was gradually increasing, and her power became more and more terrifying. She was finally as powerful as Cao Qiu Dao and Yang Yi Tian.

In the Tuta Sea, while the Demon Dwellers were preparing for the invasion, a group of Demon Dwellers was beheaded mysteriously.

After that, the Demon Dwellers sent Demon Master Ma Qi Jie to investigate. At the area of the Corpse God Sect in the Tuta Sea, Ma Qi Jie was severely injured and almost couldn’t return alive.

Bo Xun was in a rage and departed personally, going to that sea area alone to find the Corpse God Sect for retaliation.

In the Corpse God Sect, the two giant ten-thousand-year King Corpses united, using the essence of the Five Elements of Heaven and Earth to deal with Bo Xun, making him return without getting anything. Under cover of the Five Elements Sky Net, the Corpse God Sect was fully enveloped, and even Bo Xun’s soul consciousness could hardly pierce through.

After this war, the Corpse God Sect had attracted the worldwide attention.

Although Qing Ming was the cult master of the Corpse God Sect, he unexpectedly didn’t participate in that earth-shaking war.

After this war, the Corpse God Sect had some changes. The two King Corpses got out of Qing Ming's control and became the real master of the Sect. The corpse slaves that were initially in confinement suddenly became the pillars of the Corpse God Sect, and the original disciples became the servants of the corpse slaves.

The two King Corpses rebelled, re-writing the history of the Corpse God Sect. The King Corpses and the corpse slaves gathered and became a dominant force, dominating Qing Ming’s disciples.

The King Corpses had a ten-thousand-year-old intellect and were now in charge of the Corpse God Sect, making the Sect even stronger.

Even Demon King Bo Xun couldn’t get any benefits from the unity of the two King Corpses. This made all warriors of the Endless Sea aware of how terrible the King Corpses’ power was for the first time.

The Xia family had declined; the former master of the Xia family, Xia Jing Hou, suddenly left his secluded life at the Vault of Heaven Sea Area and fought with the Dark Dwellers at the border of the Kyara Sea, slaughtering hundreds of Dark Dwellers of different levels.

The three Dark Sky Yama Kings (1) of the Seven-layered Underworld fought with Xia Jing Hou but couldn’t kill him.

Xia Jing Hou became famous after one battle. He then gathered the remnants of the Xias and rose up in the Vault of Heaven Sea Dream, re-establishing the strength and forces in the Heavenly Demon Mountain Range and re-housing the Xia family. After this war, everyone suddenly realized that Xia Jing Hou had entered the Second Sky of Spirit Realm. Moreover, his soul cultivation was extremely profound. Even Yang Yi Tian had to admit that his soul ability was not as good as that of Xia Jing Hou.

The Xia family re-embarked on the stage and was even more dazzling than ever.

Yang Yi Tian of the Vault of Heaven Sea Area had to acknowledge Xia Jing Hou’s strength, let him dominate the said Sea Area and fight with the high-class warriors of the three Dark Sky Yama Kings at the Kyara Sea.

The ten-thousand-year King Corpses in the Tuta Sea, Ouyang Lou Shuang of the Three Gods Sect, and Xia Jing Hou made their rebellion all of a sudden. These four masters appeared and sabotaged the plan of the Demon Dwellers and the Dark Dwellers. Furthermore, Cao Qiu Dao and Yang Yi Tian also contacted and gathered all forces everywhere to resist and suppress the Demon Dwellers and the Dark Dwellers.

The Demon Dwellers and the Dark Dwellers wanted to clear the Endless Sea in a short time. However, seeing the four masters appear intimidatingly, they had to consider carefully and didn’t dare to carry out their schemes recklessly. Instead, they gradually invaded and acquired the three Sea Areas.

Over the past year, the two Demon Kings and three Yama Kings had respectively fought with Cao Qiu Dao, Yang Yi Tian, the ten-thousand-year King Corpses, Ouyang Lou Shuang, and Xia Jing Hou, but they couldn’t get any benefits from these masters’ unity. They had all got injured several times and began to subside.

After that, the inferior warriors started to fight with each other. A small war happened every three days, and a big war occurred every seven days.

A year later, under the resistance of Cao Qiu Dao and Yang Yi Tian, the Demon Dwellers and the Dark Dwellers still couldn’t conquer the Endless Sea. Both sides gradually fell into the war of attrition, where they competed for manpower and resources.

Qu Yan Qing sat on her chair, took a sip of green tea and then said, "Over the past year, pagans have been fighting against us every single moment. What I just told you are the big events that happened in the past year. Except for these things, other small matters have nothing related to you. As I think you are not interested in them, I won’t tell."

"The thousand-year King Corpses, Ouyang Lou Shuang, Xia Jing Hou…" Shi Yan muttered, revealing a strange face and beaming a smile.

He suddenly realized that all of those people somehow had a connection with him.

If it weren’t for his Life Seal that had activated the Thousand Year King Corpses' consciousness, they wouldn't have had the wisdom to betray Qing Ming or appear to resist Demon King Bo Xun and take over the Corpse Gods Sect, making the corpse slaves become masters.

It could be said that he alone had led to the transformation of the Thousand Year King Corpses.

Ouyang Lou Shuang’s case was almost the same.

That year, if it weren’t for him having the Star God inheritance that stimulated the transformation of the meteorite, Ouyang Lou Shuang could still have ascetically cultivated inside the meteorite, not being able to wake up that early.

Because of his appearance, Ouyang Lou Shuang woke up that fast. She then entered the Endless Sea and became the shining God Realm warrior of the Three Gods Sect.

Xia Jing Hou’s case wasn’t different.

Shi Yan knew the reason that Xia Jing Hou could regain his normal state that fast was the benefits from the Vain Spirit Pellet of Ye Zhang Feng. Ye Zhang Feng had said that Xia Jing Hou had arrived the swamp in the Dark Magnetic Noxious Mist, and had been trapped for many years. That’s why he had gotten one remaining drop of the clear God Soul.

After having absorbed that crystal clear God Soul, the Reincarnation Martial Spirit of the Xia family had mutated, leading to his insanity.

After having taken the Vein Spirit Pellet, he had gradually recovered and digested the immortal spirit in that crystal clear God Soul. This helped him enter the new realm, the Second Sky of Spirit Realm, and master the magical martial technique left in the crystal clear God Soul. Hence, he was finally strong enough to fight with the Dark Sky Yama Kings.

The King Corpses, Ouyang Lou Shuang, and Xia Jing Hou…

Shi Yan grinned, his face joyful.

Over the past year, although he hadn’t stayed in the Endless Sea, he had either intentionally or accidentally contributed to the strength of those three masters. They could substitute him to rise and get involved in the distress of the Endless Sea.

To a certain extent, he had been quietly affecting the situation of the Endless Sea, even though he hadn’t been here.

"What are you laughing at?" Qu Yan Qing was surprised.

"Nothing," Shi Yan shook his head, hesitated for a while and then continued. "Do you have any news of the Yang family? Are there any Yangs showing up over the past year?"

"One part of the Yangs should be on the seabed this time. We have received news saying that Yang Mu and his fellows used to appear in Barren City at the bottom of the sea. However, the situation in the Endless Sea is grim, so nobody wants to find them to start more troubles. As far as we can see, Yang Mu and the others should have come out from the Chasm Battlefield and arrived at Barren City," Qu Yan Qing said.

"The Barren City?" Shi Yan looked surprised.

"Yes. The Barren City in the ocean floor is opened by the Sea Tribes. Its purpose is for them to exchange some goods with the human race. Although materials in the seabed are rich, some cultivating materials can only be found on land. The Sea Tribes have opened the Barren City so that the warriors on the sea surface can exchange their cultivating materials for the submarine materials."

"Did Yang Mu actually appear in the Barren City?" Shi Yan muttered while his eyes suddenly lit up.

(1) Yama King: Diyu (Chinese: 地獄) is the realm of the dead or "hell" in Chinese mythology. The exact number of levels in Diyu and their associated deities differ between Buddhist and Taoist interpretations. Sometimes they say it is divided into ‘Ten Courts of Hell’; each of which is ruled by a judge (collectively known as the Ten Yama Kings).
