Oldie's explanation of the Ethereal Extent had opened a new door for everybody. The warriors from the Raging Flame Star Area fell into silence.

Fei Lan had the largest harvest. She squinted as if she was attempting to grasp the mysteries of the Ethereal Extent.

"According to you, when the Ethereal Realm experts die, their Ethereal Extents will cease to exist. So why was the special space I've seen in my homeland still there? Why hasn't it vanished yet?" asked Shi Yan skeptically.

"The location of the Ethereal Extent should be special. We can go there through the space slit... In other words, he died in the chaotic space basin. I guess he died in a unique method. That's why his soul vanished but his Ethereal Extent remained." Oldie gave a smile.

"He died in the chaotic space basin so his Ethereal Extent never extinguished?" asked Fei Lan curiously.

"I said that he used a unique method to die in the chaotic space basin. That could keep the Ethereal Extent from vanishing," Oldie squinted, "About what method it is, haha. I'm sorry I can't tell you much about that. But I'm sure that that place is an Ethereal Extent, floating in the middle of the chaotic space basin."

Shi Yan and the other warriors exchanged looks.

What Oldie had explained were things that they had never heard before. They couldn't figure out many subtle details. They could only believe what the giant said.

"I'll bring you guys to a place," the Giant pondered for a while then said, "Come to the back of the mountain with me."

Then, he led the crowd, walking in the direction Xiao Man had left. Shi Yan's group wasn't sure about his intentions but they chose to follow him in silence.

Many warriors of the Giant Tribe followed them quietly. Their eyes sparkled strangely as if they were really excited.

Behind the grand mountain range was a garden where many types of strange and precious grass and plants grew. Many Giant women and children were taking care of the plants. Xiao Man was standing by a middle-aged Giant woman, excitedly telling her about his experience in his Coming of Age Challenge.

The Giant woman had a wrinkled face. Her God Body was covered in scars. It seemed like she used to get wounded which left scars that could not get healed again.

She mildly listened to Xiao Man, nodded continually. When she noticed that Giant Oldie coming, she immediately bowed to him. "Greeting, Tribal Oldie."

Oldie nodded, smiling tenderly. "Xiao Man is a good kid. He's more excellent than Zhen Gu that year. He will be a good soldier of ours in the future."

The woman didn't look happy at all. Quite the contrary, her eyes expressed sorrow as she spoke up in low spirits. "I would rather have him be an ordinary kid. He could just let things take of themselves in their own course (*). I don't want him to be an excellent soldier."

(*) The Daoist doctrine of inaction – TL.

Xiao Man wasn't happy. He grunted, "I'm a man. I want to fight together with my Dad!"

The woman sighed, shaking her head slightly.

The Giant was a little begrudging, trying to comfort her. "Men of our tribe have to experience bloody battles. This is a responsibility that we can't avoid. That's why before they grow up, we don't tell them anything. We don't want to give them pressure. We want them to enjoy their carefree childhood. However, they have to eventually grow up. Without soldiers, how could our children enjoy good and prosperous lives?"

"I understand. I just said it casually," the woman nodded, forcing a smile and looking at her son lovingly. "However, I can't help it after looking at them grow and thinking about what they are going to face."

Many Giant soldiers, woman, and children there started to feel heavy emotions as they listened to their conversation. They kept quiet, saying nothing.

Shi Yan, Leona, Fei Lan, and the warriors of the Raging Flame Star Area were also influenced by their moods. They also felt the unbearable atmosphere.

"Right ahead of us," the Giant Oldie took a deep breath, crossing the garden, and taking people to a cliff behind the mountain. The void there had so many tiny space slits that looked like light reflected from a sharp blade. Hovering in the middle was a massive space slit.

The Giant Oldie jumped up and fell into that space slit. He then waved at them from the inside.

Shi Yan and the others immediately followed him.

The sky was hazily gray. There was no energy fluctuation from living beings. This place was an immense area without earth and heaven energy. All that their eyes could see was the boundless mist. Their Soul Consciousness couldn't pierce through layers of restrictions to observe the whole place.

"Do you feel something familiar?" The Giant Oldie's eyes brightened, looking at Shi Yan with nervousness.

Shi Yan sensed for a while then gawked. "I feel something familiar. It's very similar to the place I've been once!"

Many soldiers of the Giant Tribe cheered up, clenching their fists excitedly.

"This is another Ethereal Extent of that ancestor," the Giant Oldie took a deep breath then explained, "He had split his Ethereal Soul to create another Ethereal Extent. This place is also situated in the chaotic space basin. He made it so that it would never be distinguished. The Ethereal Extent in this place and the Ethereal Extent you've entered came from one person. Of course, they are very similar. Two Ethereal Extents of his are in the current of the chaotic space basin, but they are in different areas. One is in our old homeland, and one is here. They used to be connected. However, they were separated and sealed by the hollow barrier, which was caused naturally."

Everybody was astounded.

"We can split the Ethereal Soul?" Fei Lan was dumbstruck.

"There are many marvelous things you will get in the Ethereal God Realm. You can gradually comprehend them later." Oldie nodded, his face grimaced. "Splitting the Ethereal God isn't something good. Our ancestor had used a special method when he died in the space basin to create two Ethereal Extents, which connected two star areas. However, as time went on, a barrier naturally formed that sealed the passage. They are now no longer connected to each other."

Pausing for a second, he gazed at Shi Yan. "My ancestors and many experts of the other clans in our old homeland had jumped into outer space to bear their responsibility of wiping out the God Clan. When they hadn't eradicated this intimidating race, the hotshots in our old homeland couldn't sleep well. So that year, all the other clans had joined hands to deal with this clan. We forced them to move from our old homeland. However, our ancestors were still worried. All the clans had sent their hotshots to outer space to chase after the God Clan. We are the lineage of the Giant branch who pursued the God Clan that year."

Shi Yan seemed thrilled.

"However, after a long time of fighting and chasing after the God Clan in outer space, our ancestors had crossed many star areas. They had gone too far away from their old homeland. They were about to lose the connection, too... At that moment, they created the passage using the Ethereal Extent. The great price we had to pay was one of our experts. He ended up dying. He had split his Ethereal Soul to create two Ethereal Extents connecting us to our old homeland. We used to have a way to visit the old homeland. However, earth and heaven energy had created a barrier on its own. Eventually, we were separated. We've lost this connection for dozens of thousands of years."

Oldie slowly explained, his voice relaxed. Then, he paused and continued, "Since you're here today, this can be our chance."

"What chance?" Shi Yan was baffled.

Oldie gave a light smile. "You know how to use space power. You can use space power to tear the barrier in this place. And you have the aura of our ancestor's marrow in your body. It will help you sense the exact location. As soon as you link the two locations, we can use the Ethereal Extent to connect those two star areas. What do you say?"

Shi Yan was shaken.

He suddenly felt that he had no secrets preserved in Oldie's eyes.

He had already felt the aura of the gold marrow and his space power.

"Please help us connect the two star areas and tear the barrier!" Oldie gave a low shout.

"Please help us!"

The Giant soldiers bent their bodies slightly to beg for his favor.

Leona, Fei Lan, and the others were perplexed, not knowing what to say.

"You... There's no living member of your clan in your homeland. What can you do even if we can get through the passage? Your homeland isn't suitable for your cultivation anymore." While Shi Yan looked like the others were making things difficult for him, he was actually extremely excited.

According to Oldie, he just needed to break the barrier. Then, he could connect the two star areas through the two Ethereal Extents. Would it be this easy to solve his tough problem too?

In fact, he had desperately wished this.

However, he needed to negotiate some conditions.

"Although the old homeland isn't suitable for us to continue our cultivation, it has our clan's relics, objects that are very important to us..." Oldie's eyes brightened radiantly, "and we do still want to see how our old homeland is."

"I have only one condition," Shi Yan pondered for a while then said, "If I can connect to your homeland, I hope you can give us a place to dwell. I hope you will allow my people to stay here and cultivate."

"Of course," Oldie smiled and agreed.

"Then I will give it a try." Shi Yan quieted down. The Giant Clan wouldn't lie. They wouldn't go back on their word. As he got this old Giant to answer, he didn't need to be worried anymore.

"We should leave. The moment the space barrier is broken, space movement won't be stable. It would be very dangerous. Just leave him here." Oldie contemplated for a while before asking people to leave.

The Giant soldiers turned around to leave as their elder had asked.

Oldie looked at Fei Lan, Leona, and the others, speaking sincerely. "Staying here brings no good for you guys. Something unexpected may happen."

"Let's go." Fei Lan knew what to do in this situation. She nodded and led the warriors out of this place. They returned to the cliff.

Carthew, Zi Yao, Feng Rao, Ka Tuo, and the others left quietly, leaving Shi Yan alone in the miracle Ethereal Extent inside the space slit.

Shortly after, only Shi Yan was in the vast Ethereal Extent.

He squinted, coming to the entrance of the Ethereal Extent, observing the floating, transparent space slits. Gradually, space energy fluctuation twirled around him clearly.

Sizzle Sizzle!

A beam of light suddenly shot out from a fine space slit. Shi Yan's God Body seemed to be split up. Space sabers emerged next to him.

A giant crystal shot out from the space slit in front of him, hovering in the void.

It was Empty Fantasy Crystal, the marvelous crystal he had hidden in another space slit. This crystal could strengthen his space power.

The Giant Oldie had divine light shining in his eyes. He gave a relaxed smile, speaking slowly. "I was worried about him. But now I'm not. He does have the ability. If nothing unexpected happens, he can break that barrier soon. We will finally see our old homeland..."

More than ten Giant soldiers had tears lingering in their eyes.
