Chapter 585: Molting!

Translator: Sigma Editor: Hitesh
From the aura the War Devil, the Ghost Hunter, the King of Demonic Insects, the Devouring Gold Silkworm, and the Holy Spirit God were exuding, only the two sages of the Ghost Mark Clan could hurt Shi Yan.

Those clansmen, who hadn’t restored their power yet, weren’t a match for the War Devil or Ghost Hunter. They didn’t even have enough power to engage a battle, so how could they hurt him?

The two sages weren’t here.

Experts at the True God Realm had many supernatural secret techniques. Beheading someone from thousands of miles away was easy to them. If they had attacked Shi Yan, it was possible that they could wound Shi Yan to that level.

Besides the two sages, Yun Xiu couldn’t think of anybody else who could trouble Shi Yan that much.

She was correct.

Rechecking the void above their head, Yun Xiu suddenly felt very insecure. Light sparkled in her eyes as she said, "We should leave first!"

"Elder Yun!"

Luo Xiao and Luo Meng screamed hurriedly.

"Teacher!"

Bai Hui Quan couldn’t understand, looking inexplicably at Yun Xiu.

"We don’t have time to explain much. Anyway, we have to leave quickly." Yun Xiu took a cold breath. She felt tense, as if there were a pair of eyes watching her coldly.

She could even recognize the spiritual Qi around this place was disordered and chaotic, which hinted of a dangerous risk.

But she didn't know that her feeling came from the four heaven flames, and not the two sages of the Ghost Mark Clan.

At this moment, the two sages of the Ghost Mark Clan were besieged. They had to struggle against Lei Mo's team, so they didn't have extra time to pay attention to this area.

Yun Xiu didn't know that. She felt that the strange atmosphere around her was caused by the two sages.

She didn’t let Luo Xiao and Bai Hui Quan have more chances to inquire. Yun Xiu used a dark green fabric sheet to cover these juniors inside the carriage, and drove the flying carriage away.

Although Luo Xiao and the others didn’t want that, they had no way under the binding of Yun Xiu’s secret treasure. They could only see Shi Yan zooming out until he completely disappeared from their sight.

Yun Xiu’s team came here and lingered for around the time of ten breaths, then left hurriedly.

After Yun Xiu had driven the flying carriage away, another flash sparkled near Shi Yan. A long-limbed figure appeared quietly.

Ai Ya.

Under the dim-lit light, she looked like a lonely spirit moving towards Shi Yan.

Ai Ya halted in midway. Cold light like sharp sabers shot out from her beautiful eyes, hitting Lei Ji.

Lei Ji was standing a hundred zhang (333 meters) away from Shi Yan in the middle of some graves. He stood solemnly, but there was no breathing. He was like a withered tree without vitality.

However, the torrential, violent thunder and lightning power were moving clearly in his body.

There was no soul but the evil, brutal energy in his body. Lei Ji’s change was inexplicably bizarre.

Ai Ya stood far from Lei Ji. Her beautiful eyes coldly stare at him as if she were contemplating.

Anyway, she didn’t pay much attention to Shi Yan. She just gave him a look and then turned away. This looked like Shi Yan’s change wasn’t a surprise to her.

Ai Ya watched Lei Ji in silence. Her gorgeous eyes showed a complex set of emotions. Hatred. Resentment. Doubt. They were changing as she was making her mind up on a difficult decision.

Long afterward, Ai Ya had her decision. From a hundred zhang away, she formed a hand seal. Silver light flashed in her palms.

The evil sharp light shot out. It was a dagger-like silver hairpin, which was full of dangerous surging energy.

The silver hairpin drew a graceful curve in the air, disappearing into Lei Ji’s chest.

Puff!

The silver hairpin pierced through Lei Ji’s chest, making another curve in the air, then disappearing.

Ai Ya snatched it. The silver hairpin flashed, then reappeared in her palm. She arched her brows, watching Lei Ji as if she were waiting for something in silence.

Sizzle Sizzle Sizzle!

The strange noise echoed in Lei Ji’s body as if some force was decomposing his body.

Ai Ya relaxed, exhaling in relief.

Boom!

However, a rumbling thunder echoed from Lei Ji’s body.

More than ten sharp needles of the silver hairpin were erased in that thunder.

As the master of the secret treasure, Ai Ya was hurt severely. Her Soul Consciousness trembled, and her pretty face grimaced in fear.

"Roar!"

At the same time, Shi Yan roared hoarsely. His face was as sinister as a demon.

Ai Ya’s Soul Consciousness got hurt, and she was more frightened on hearing Shi Yan’s roar. At this moment, she finally realized that someone else was here, too. Ai Ya turned around to check.

A thick, bloody scent diffused from Shi Yan. His blood pupils were ruthless and bloodthirsty.

Ai Ya was startled. Her face became grim as she was moving energy in her body, ready to counter at any minute.

Eventually, she recognized Shi Yan’s dangerous situation.

Ai Ya smiled, her face cold. The silver hairpin in her hand circled, then retreated.

She assumed that Shi Yan was about to undoubtedly die.

Ghost Hunter, War Devil, and the other strange living beings were still protecting him in silence. They didn't attack her initially, but they were evaluating Ai Ya. Once Ai Ya made a move with an evil intention, they would bombard her.

Ai Ya had soon known that those strange creatures were dangerous. However, it seemed she had another shield, so she wasn’t afraid of them.

Of course, she wouldn’t provoke them proactively. She retreated, trying to prevent causing any conflict with those peculiar creatures.

Ai Ya took several steps back. She gathered her energy the second time, using a special technique to attack Lei Ji’s body one more time. They didn’t know how deep her resentment for Lei Ji was.

"Phew Phew Phew!"

Shi Yan panted and screamed in pain. He was at the last step of molting his body using the Immortal Rebirth Technique. Energy rolled vehemently in his blood, getting absorbed into his bones and marrow, making them crystalline, ink-black, and more tenacious.

Each muscle of his was convulsing, as its fibers were sucking power from his blood. Strange changes happened altogether with the pain. Even his Sea of Consciousness was boiled, constantly surging with violent waves.

While his Sea of Consciousness was raging, his host soul was calm. It used the change of the Sea of Consciousness to refill the consumed soul power through the Soul Consciousness.

In this strange situation, Shi Yan's Soul Consciousness had a transformation along with his body.

Boom!

His Sea of Consciousness was turbulent. The third eye of his host soul was dazzling like a star or a diamond.

In this fraction of the time, he formed the connection with the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame. He could sense the invisible, intangible soul fiber again.

At this moment, during his painful transformation, his mind restored.

He glared at Ai Ya while an evil light sparkled in his blood pupils. He said calmly, "What are you doing?"

Ai Ya was using her secret martial techniques to attack Lei Ji from a distance. She looked like she wanted to smash Lei Ji to a pulp of flesh.

Ai Ya heard his voice and was startled. She looked at Shi Yan deeply, then pretended to be calm. "What does it matter to you?"

"Did Lei Ji try to kill you?" Shi Yan threw her a glare, sneering.

Ai Ya was scared, shouting. "How did you know that?"

Shi Yan put on a mocking look and snorted, but didn’t explain.

After the World Extinguishing Thunder Flame had possessed Lei Ji, it controlled Lei Ji to kill the low-realm warriors like Mo Ling Er. Perhaps it wanted to restore its power using slaughtering. Ai Ya was with Lei Ji all the time, so she should have been the first target of the World Extinguishing Thunder Flame.

However, this woman survived the World Extinguishing Thunder Flame’s attack, which was beyond Shi Yan’s assumption.

"You’re excellent. Seems you had a big harvest in the toxic lands. Otherwise, you couldn’t survive Lei Ji’s attack. Congratulations. Your sinister heart has kept you safe until now," Shi Yan sneered.

Ai Ya discolored. "How did you know that Lei Ji attacked me? Why? We were friends from childhood. Why did he suddenly become so ruthless to me?!" The more she talked, the worse control she had. She looked like she had a mental illness, with her inexplicably evil smile.

She was Ai Po’s daughter, and Lei Ji was Lei Mo’s son. The White Emperor City wasn’t too far from the Thunder Emperor City. Ai Po and Lei Mo were close friends, and she and Lei Ji had grown up together. There was a hazy affection between them.

Lei Ji had attacked her all of a sudden. If she hadn’t had some secret treasures, she would have been killed instantly.

Until now, she had no idea of what had happened. She didn't understand why Lei Ji, who always nurtured her and followed her, became that fiercely heartless.

She didn’t know what had happened.

Shi Yan knew something, but he hated her dark heart, so he didn’t explain anything and just sneered.

"Tell me! Why is that? Why did he treat me that way?" Ai Ya shouted.

"You deserve that," Shi Yan didn’t answer her.

Ai Ya paled.

Shi Yan didn’t pay attention to her anymore, pointed to her and ordered the Ghost Hunter. "Kill her."

The Ghost Hunter roared.

Shi Yan sat neatly, slowly adjusting his breathing. He concentrated his mind and spirit, following that soul fiber to search for the place where the four heaven flames were fighting.

Ai Ya’s eyes were cold, watching the Ghost Hunter. She gritted her teeth and avoided the beast.

From her left white hand, an armor made from shattered jade enveloped her soft body. Pieces of jade on the armor sparkled, releasing marvelous aurae of different types of powers. They seemed to have a connection with her Sea of Consciousness.

The power in Ai Ya’s body bloomed, rippling without any rule.

All of a sudden, Ai Ya’s aura was hidden, leaving no surging fluctuation, as if she had never come here.

The Ghost Hunter was bewildered. It stopped and sensed, while a bizarre light shot out from its pupils. The beast took the Demonic Bell out.

Jingle Jingle!

Strange jingling sounds came from the Demonic Bell as the Ghost Hunter strolled around the tomb to search for its opponent.

At the same time, following the soul fiber, Shi Yan changed his visage, entering a marvelous space.
