Chapter 688: Ancient Desolate Area, Border Sea

Translator: Sigma Editor: Hitesh
The location Bao Ao had shown him was in the far East of the Divine Great Land, a place called the Ancient Desolate Area.

In Antiquity Time, the Grace Mainland had an area called the Ancient Desolate Area, the transition area between the great clans, where different clans gathered and exchanged goods.

As Shi Yan had reached the True God Realm, he had a deeper knowledge of space. Eventually, he got to know that there were some smaller spaces around the Grace Mainland. They were like some small rooms surrounding a big room.

In Antiquity Time, those small spaces were the territories of different clans that they had exploited.

During that old time, the ten clans had thrived. As their experts with tremendous supernatural powers weren't contented with the small area of the Grace Mainland, they had found themselves new worlds. Those areas contained thick spiritual Qi and precious materials. They had used different methods to find many smaller spaces around the Grace Mainland, where their clan could stay and exploit.

Soon, they found out those spaces were filled with spiritual Qi and rich soil, which was suitable for their clan to live.

Then, the alien tribes moved to those smaller spaces, cultivating and searching for precious products of Nature. They had divided and claimed their own territories.

As time flew, many clans stayed in the small spaces. Some clans that were defeated in big wars in the Grace Mainland also moved their whole clan out of the continent.

Actually, the Seven-layered Underworld, the Four Demon Areas, the Chasm Battlefield, the secret domain in the Cold Wind Island, and the Ice and Fire Secret Domain in the Perpetual Night Forest were all the small spaces outside the Grace Mainland. After tens of thousands of years, they had developed to the current appearance.

Those spaces were connected with each other and the Grace Mainland, and some gateways were sealed for some reasons.

After so many years, many of the small spaces had run out of spiritual Qi. Some spaces were sealed, becoming the survival regions of alien tribes. They would never connect with the Grace Mainland again.

The Ancient Desolate Area was the place connecting territories of alien tribes. Above the Ancient Desolate Area was the Border Sea, where many heaven gates kept floating and bobbing, leading to numerous small spaces.

Since space power in the Border Sea above the Ancient Desolate Area was chaotically abundant, it was the most suitable place to build heaven gateways. That’s why the clans had decided to build the gateways there to connect to the smaller spaces.

Gradually, the Ancient Desolate Area had become a special existence.

However, no one knew what had happened to the Border Sea in the modern time that all heaven gateways had been closed. Due to the chaotic space energy in the area, people didn’t dare to take risks and explore the place.

In the modern day, there were no experts who specialized in building heaven gateways. Thus, the Ancient Desolate Area had become an abandoned place.

Previously, the seven ancient factions had sent their hotshots to guard the area and the Border Sea above, as they were afraid something would happen to the Border Sea.

During the recent ten thousand years, everything was normal there. Gradually, the seven ancient factions had loosened their guard. They withdrew the hotshots and didn't pay much attention to the area.

It was until the time Shi Yan comprehended the space power, which led to the Great Space Fission, and the Border Sea changed abnormally. Many sealed heaven gateways opened under the effect of the space power.

Bao Ao and Jie Ji had come back to this continent from the Second Demon Area through the heaven gateway here.

Shi Yan had gathered space power, using his Soul Consciousness to direct the way. Half a day later, he had crossed through layers of space just like walking through the doors to get to the Ancient Desolate Area. As soon as he had arrived there, he saw the wonder of the Antiquity Time – the Border Sea.

It was a barren place with a garnet ground and no foliage. Shi Yan saw many ruins of palaces and buildings, with many traces of ancient formations.

At first glance, the Ancient Desolate Area looked like an imposing ruin of a big city.

The sky above the Ancient Desolate Area had many cracks, like long cuts, across the sky. Those cuts contained billions of light spots, with fierce space power that could crush everything.

That was the Border Sea.

Shi Yan faced up the sky and recognized that the Border Sea was made of countless space slits. Each space slit led to a small space, which were the secret domains Yun Hao had mentioned.

The journey to the secret domains Yun Hao and the seven ancient factions had mentioned was the trip to the Border Sea above the Ancient Desolate Area. The seven ancient factions had some secret techniques that could open one or two secret domains here. These places still had spiritual Qi and some interesting places to explore.

Today, when Shi Yan observed so many cracks in the sky, he understood that the seven ancient factions didn’t need to open any secret domain anymore. Most of the gateways to the secret domains were inside the space cracks. However, it would be tough to explore those areas.

Bao Ao and Jie Ji had shown him this area. However, Shi Yan’s Soul Consciousness couldn’t sense anything.

Standing in the barren, quiet Ancient Desolate Area, Shi Yan mused for a while, releasing flows of invisible lightning-like Soul Consciousness to the space slits in the Border Sea above his head.

Behind each space slit was a small space above the Grace Mainland. During the Antiquity Time, those spaces were the territories of the strong tribes. But after tens of thousands of years, the spiritual Qi there had scattered completely. Now, only death Qi filled the place.

When a normal warrior sent his Soul Consciousness to the space slit, not only couldn’t he get anything, but also couldn’t retrieve it back, which would affect his soul.

Shi Yan was different, as his Soul Consciousness carried the mysteries of Space Upanishad. It could glide through space slits without being hindered. Normal space energy fluctuation couldn’t affect him, giving him room to explore the place.

More than three hundred flows of Soul Consciousness sneaked through the space slits. Flows of death and desolate aura came back to his God Soul, making him understand the basic situation of those spaces.

There was no living fluctuation, spiritual Qi, or treasures that carried energy. In those small spaces, it seemed that silence dominated the entire area, which caused him a fierce soul impact.

Actually, the Antiquity Time didn’t have only the ten races. The God Clan, the Dark Clan, the Demon Clan, and the Monster Clan were just the ten strongest clans.

Besides them, there were almost one hundred minor and bizarre races. However, they were weak, and their competence was unclear.

Those small clans had opened space cracks and moved their whole clans there. However, after so many years, those spaces were tranquil, as if the clans staying inside were all dead.

Shi Yan was frightened.

Looking at the Border Sea above his head with so many space cracks, Shi Yan didn’t give up. He gathered and condensed his Soul Consciousness, sending it to survey more space slits.

There were several thousand space slits inside the Border Sea. Even his Soul Consciousness’s intensity couldn’t search them all shortly. He had to carry it out step by step.

The three hundred flows of Soul Consciousness hadn’t reported any energy fluctuations of living beings to him. Everything was quiet and desolate, which distressed him a little bit.

He understood that one of those space cracks was the entrance to the Second Demon Area where Bao Ao and Jie Ji had come from. However, finding a door among a countless number of doors wasn’t an easy task.

He vaguely thought it wasn’t good.

If nothing unexpected happened, Bao Ao and Jie Ji would send some experienced warriors of the Demon Tribe to support him. But he saw no one now. What had happened?

Then, he observed the surroundings of the Ancient Desolate Area, and found some streaks of recent battles.

A thought popped up in his head. The five great alien tribes had fought here!

Bao Ao and Jie Ji were here. Were they defeated? Did they retreat into the Second Demon Area?

Bao Ao and Jie Ji’s force could be considered the strongest among the five clans. Normally, the other four clans wouldn’t dare to fight face to face the Demon Clan.

Something unexpected had happened!

Shi Yan slammed his eyebrows together.

He had a good impression of Bao Ao and Jie Ji. They had helped him. Moreover, he seemed to have the Demon bloodline in his body. Naturally, Shi Yan would favor the Demon Clan more.

If the Demon Clan failed, his career in the Perpetual Night would be affected. He might be swept away by the other four clans shortly.

He suddenly felt tense. Shi Yan immediately gathered his Soul Consciousness and sensed the remaining space splits. A long while later, his eyes brightened. He shuddered and then retrieved the flows of Soul Consciousness he had released.

Got it!

A significant beam of Demon Qi appeared clearly inside a space slit. After he extended his Soul Consciousness to tens of thousands of miles inside the space crack, he felt the energy fluctuation of living beings for the first time.

That was a member of the Ghost Mark Clan.

He had a good grasp of the Soul Upanishad of the Ghost Mark Clan. His Soul Consciousness just needed to rake through the place, and he could confirm that was a member of the Ghost Mark Clan due to his special physique. Shi Yan was certain about it.

There was Demon Qi and adequate conditions for living beings, which confirmed that the Demon Clan was in there. However, seeing the Ghost Mark Clan’s member there, Shi Yan assumed that the Demon Clan had encountered big trouble, and were forced to get back to their homeland.

Thoughts crossed his head continually. Shi Yan pondered, following the Soul Consciousness’s direction towards that space slit.

This space split was quite peaceful and large. Perhaps, Bao Ao and Jie Ji had renovated this place before. The chaotic, unpredictable space energy waves were restrained by the strange Demon techniques, so this place wasn’t as dangerous as Shi Yan had thought.

After he reached the True God Realm, his understanding of the space power had increased by one more level. However, the more he knew, the better he understood the dangers of space slits.

Although he understood space power, entering the perilous space slits could always take his life away.

Many terrible space cracks contained the evilest creatures in the world, along with the most intimidating natural formations. Many space cracks were exactly like giant slaughtering machines, which could destroy every creature, including the God Souls!

The chaotic space basin was one of the most hazardous places. The furious, disordered flows of space in there could destroy the God Soul, or smash the King God Realm’s warriors into pulp.

This was why he didn’t dare to enter the other entrance of the Ice and Fire Secret Domain, which had the chaotic space basin.

Although he was worried about Xia Xin Yan, for the future of the entire family and the Human Clan, he chose not to take risks. This showed how tremendously dangerous the place was.

Swoosh!

Like a gust of wind, he glided through the space slit. Immediately, he felt the light in his eyes had vanished, as he stepped in a dark, gloomy world.

The Second Demon Area…
