Chapter 835: The Mysterious Hermetic Expert

Translator: Sigma_ Editor: SSins
Fan Ye, an expert at the First Sky of Original God Realm, was dragged to somewhere out of their sights. They didn't know whether he was still alive or not.

The small alley was now a ruin. Smoke and dust swirled in the air as it hadn't dispersed yet. Warriors yelled and cursed, walking through piles of rocks. They shouted while trying to find the one who caused the damage to take revenge.

At this moment, to prevent themselves from being ambushed by Fan Ye, Shi Yan and Feng Rao were moving quickly towards the Blue Demon's base.

Dust and rock chips still scattered in the air. Bi Tian, the great Commander of the Underworld League, Bi Rou, and Allard were standing in a small cottage at the other end of the ruined alley. They looked at the cloud of dust with heavy and yet strange eyes.

"That sudden force was so terrifying!" Allard took a deep breath, his face pale. He instinctively looked at Bi Tian standing next to him. "Master, was that Feng Ke?"

"Feng Ke?" Bi Tian shook his head, "He's in the Blue Demon's discussing the star map. He doesn't have free time now. Moreover, he doesn't have such power. Even for me, if I wanted to subdue Fan Ye and make him lose the strength to resist like that, I wouldn't be able to. No need to mention Feng Ke."

Although they were both at the Second Sky of Original God Realm, Bi Tian considered himself one level stronger than Feng Ke. His confidence stemmed from his strength.

Even Bi Tian who was at the Second Sky of Original God Realm couldn't explain the immense force that they had just witnessed. How strong was that person?

Allard and Bi Rou contemplated, their faces solemn.

"Seems like it's true. The rumor saying that the Heaven Punishment City has some hermetic experts." Bi Tian's eyes sparkled with strange light. He continued faintly, "Although the three big forces have joined hands to sweep over the Heaven Punishment City many times, we can't uproot the space pirates here. Besides the forbidden lands around, perhaps... there's another reason."

Hearing him, Allard and Bi Rou paled.

"Father... are you saying that someone stronger than you is staying in this area?" Bi Rou shouted slightly, her face disbelieving. "Only Du Tian Ji of the divine nation has the Third Sky of Original God Realm cultivation base! In the Raging Flame Star Area, we have the only other three at the Third Sky of Original God Realm, right?"

"We've known just the three of them," Bi Tian frowned, "but we don't know who is hiding. Who can be sure that there aren't more?"

Warriors in his team discolored in fright.

"Anyway, what surprised me wasn't the hermit in the Heaven Punishment City," Bi Tian contemplated for a while then lowered his voice, "I'm more surprised at Shi Yan's real competence!"

As he said that, Bi Rou and Allard were shaken, remembering his strength.

"Obviously, he didn't use all of his powers in the battle with Black Horn. Since Fan Ye wanted to kill him, he had stirred up the potential of that young man. He had forced him to show his real competence. I think that even if the hermetic expert didn't give him a hand, he still had the strength to battle." Bi Tian took a deep breath, divine light shooting out from his eyes. "In fact, he has only the Second Sky of King God Realm cultivation base while Feng Rao has the First Sky of Original God Realm. The young man is incredibly strong. We must recruit him to our team."

Allard and Bi Rou nodded solemnly.

Shi Yan and Feng Rao flew rapidly towards Feng Ke's manor in the Heaven Punishment City. Seeing his grand palace, they finally calmed down.

In this place, the other experts also felt the commotions of a battle inside the Heaven Punishment City. They paused their meeting and came to the training yard where Shi Yan and Black Horn had battled, discussing clamorously.

As soon as Shi Yan and Feng Rao appeared, they drew the attention of everyone else. Feng Ke on the stone platform still sensed something with his eyes closed. He seemed to not notice that Shi Yan and Feng Rao were back.

"Master Russell, your best friend Fan Ye is in the Heaven Punishment City. He attacked us." Shi Yan shouted when he arrived and hadn't had time to steady himself.

Russell's face got colder then became glorious with the brutal deed. "I could feel the familiar energy. It is him. This is excellent!"

His figured melted like the quicksand merging into the ground. He disappeared shortly to find Fan Ye in the city.

Feng Ke opened his eyes, his eyelids twitching.

"Father, Fan Ye appeared while we were walking down the street. He wanted to capture me to blackmail you. When we were about to fall, someone saved us discreetly," Feng Rao explained the situation simply.

Feng Ke listened to her attentively. Until she finished, he nodded, "You guys go have a rest. I'm going to search for Fan Ye's whereabouts in the city. I won't let him go comfortably."

"Are you alright?" Bloody Slaughterer Ka Tuo quietly approached Shi Yan from the crowd of the pirate leaders.

"I'm okay," Shi Yan smiled, nodding to greet the others before leaving with Feng Rao.

"We expected earlier that experts of the three forces would try to interfere. It is not strange that Fan Ye came here. Anyway, he was a bit hurried." Ka Tuo took a deep breath. He pondered for a while then waved his hand. "I'll call it a day. You guys should prepare yourself. In the coming days, I'll summon you guys again for a detailed plan."

After they bid farewell and gave some advice, the leaders of the pirates left.

Feng Ke returned to his secret chamber and sent his message.

Not long afterward, Feng Rao entered the chamber after she had arranged everything for Shi Yan. This secret chamber was sealed with many layers of barriers and restrictions. No one could eavesdrop their conversation.

"Little Rao, you said that someone had helped you guys when you were in trouble. Do you know who that person was?" Feng Ke asked with a serious countenance.

"No, I don't," Feng Rao shook her head. "That person seemed to grab Fan Ye's neck and drag him away. Fan Ye couldn't even resist. It was so terrible..."

Feng Ke put on a serious face. "That person is much more dangerous than what you think. Even your father... I don't have such powers."

Feng Rao was scared. "Is that person at the Third Sky of Original God Realm? How could it be? Since when did our Heaven Punishment City have people with such mighty powers?"

"It's possible," Feng Ke forced a smile, "There is something that you don't know. Throughout several thousand years, every time the Heaven Punishment City met a disaster or there were enemies that couldn't be resisted, we always solved it inexplicably. The last time it happened was five hundred years ago. The Headmaster of the Li family of the Nine Star Chamber of Commerce came here, intending to sweep away the Heaven Punishment City and destroy the pirates. When that happened, the Heaven Punishment City bore heavy damage. The city was destroyed. Many pirates got killed. At the moment we thought that the Heaven Punishment City was about to be demolished, the Headmaster of the Li family died for an unknown reason. His experts were also killed unknowingly..."

Feng Ke took another deep breath. "The Heaven Punishment City should have collapsed. But the Li family's experts all died and we won the war easily."

Pausing for a moment, Feng Ke said with a vague countenance on his face, "It has happened similarly several times..."

Feng Rao was astounded. "Father, are you saying that we have an invincible hermitic expert in the Heaven Punishment City? Someone that you can't even sense?"

"If that person's realm is higher than mine, I won't be able to feel anything when he or she conceals his or her aura," nodded Feng Ke. "The leaders of the three big forces also know about this person. That's why we were able to stand strong for so long. This mysterious person is the reason why we have not been uprooted yet. Otherwise, do you think that the three forces would have spared our lives? Wouldn't they have tried to come and destroy us one more time?"

Feng Rao kept silent.

"Today, that person suddenly attacked Fan Ye to help you and Shi Yan. However, I'm not sure if this person wanted to help you or Shi Yan..." Feng Ke frowned then asked, "Who did you guys meet?"

"Jester, Ka Fu, and granny Fei Lan. And... he had left somewhere before that. I think he went to meet someone, but I didn't accompany him. I don't know who he had met," answered Feng Rao.

"Jester and Feng Ke, it would be impossible for them to have helped you... Fei Lan... She has only the Third Sky of True God Realm. She looks old and quiet. I have never seen anything strange surrounding her. Her mind seems to not be lucid. It's impossible regardless. Perhaps it was someone that Shi Yan had met. So that person had helped you guys because of him!" Feng Ke changed his visage. He pondered for a while then continued, "... He's not a simple man. Little Rao, if you can bind him with your love and make him work for us, he will be of great support to us in the future."

Feng Rao smiled naturally.

"Yeah, you should go. I need to think more." Feng Ke didn't ask further, tenderly telling his daughter to leave.

Feng Rao left immediately.

------------------------------

Shi Yan lay on his side on the windowsill in a spacious stone room. He was watching people moving in the Heaven Punishment City while he caressed the blue stone orb he bought from Fei Lan's shop. His eyes gradually brightened up.

A flow of Soul Consciousness was sent to the blue stone orb. The stone orb didn't have any halo as it was just a natural stone ball that had no energy fluctuation.

Shi Yan frowned but he didn't hasten. He observed the stone orb for a while. All of a sudden, he urged the Star power Upanishad. His soul altar moved slowly as he used the energy of the star to see what was inside the stone orb.

At the same time, his chest sparkled with star dots. Those light dots then flew out like fireflies, entering the stone orb.

The star power moved as his soul was carving the trajectory of the stars in the sky. He seemed to create a subtle and magical connection with the starry sea of the sky.

After the star energy had been poured into the stone orb, it seemed like the defense inside the orb was cleaned up. Gradually, finger-sized small eyelets appeared on the orb.

Boom!

Shi Yan's Sea of Consciousness was shaking uncontrollably. Starlight started to lash around his left hand, the hand that was holding the stone ball. His soul altar had formed a subtle and magical connection with the ball.

The starlight in the immense starry sea showered like rain, gathering inside the stone orb.

Dazzling light suddenly shot out from the eyelets in the stone orb with a terrifying piercing power!

Boom Boom Boom!

When the light hit the rock wall, it pierced through the wall. The window where he was standing exploded. His spacious stone room was prickled as many beams of light shined in different directions. The light pierced through the wall as if someone was pinching and breaking the dried tree branches.

Screams of fright and astonishment arose under the room. Many warriors of Feng Ke's force stormed upstairs to see what was happening.

Shi Yan was stunned. His eyes were brighter as he caressed the orb while it continued still shooting light everywhere. The corners of his mouth curved into a smile.
