Flame Shadow, with his forehead covered in sweat, hurriedly rushed over to Long Tian Yun. Before he had even come close, Long Tian Yun asked him with a dark expression, “Have you found them yet?”

Flame Shadow hurriedly lowered his head as he ashamedly replied, “Young master, we’ve sent out 1,000 players to go around the entire battlefield, but we haven’t found any formation items on the players.”

“None?” Long Tian Yun’s expression became even darker. “A group of trash. You haven’t found anything after such a long time?!”

“Please calm down young master,” Flame Shadow hurriedly spoke. “The places we looked were the boundaries of the formation, as detected by our highest-level Hunters. However, it’s true that there are no formation items or players there. Young master, could it be that a player is controlling… this formation… I mean…”

“You mean that this formation is a player’s skill?” Long Tian Yun asked as he looked at him.

“Yes, yes.” Flame Shadow nodded, but he thought that this was essentially impossible. However, there were no players or items at the boundary of the formation, so he couldn’t think of any other possibility.

“Foolish to the extreme!” Long Tian Yun coldly said. “Do you know how large this place is? It spans nearly 20 kilometres. If it was an NPC of the Mysterious God grade or Saint Destroyer grade it might be possible, but they can’t interfere in this battle… you’re telling me that a player released this formation? I doubt it’s possible to have a thought stupider than this.”

Being rebuked like this, Flame Shadow’s face and ears became red. He lowered his head, not daring to say anything. After thinking about how large the battlefield was, he realised how stupid his idea had been.

“In order to cover such a large area and use so many different formations, they need at least thousands of players and thousands of formation items. They would normally be spread around the boundary of the formation in a perfect circle. As long as you can find them and kill them, the formation will collapse! Hmph, in order to lay down such a large formation, the Skyfall Dynasty must have spent a fortune. I never thought that the Skyfall Dynasty would have such an ace up their sleeves- no wonder they dared to move out their entire alliance to fight against us.

“It seems that before they weren’t simply hiding, but rather laying down the formation… after spending so much time and effort laying down this formation, how could it be possible for us to discover it so easily? It’s possible that the boundary that you searched was obscured by some sort of concealment. Immediately increase the search radius… those players and the formation items might be even further away. In fact, they might even be hidden within the high-level monster territories.”

Flame Shadow’s eyes lit up as he hurriedly nodded, “Yes, yes. In the end, it’s the young master who’s truly wise. I’ll immediately give the orders… right, young master, the changes in this formation are very disadvantageous towards us, and we’ve suffered great losses. Should we temporarily retreat and find the formation’s weaknesses and then…”

“And let the entire world know that the Yan Huang Alliance and 30 or so other guilds were forced to retreat by the Skyfall Dynasty and Battle Alliance?” Long Tian Yun’s face was as dark as thunderclouds.

Flame Shadow only just realised what a stupid suggestion he had made. They had been almost tormented to tears and had suffered terrible losses, and yet they could not find out how to break the formation. Temporarily retreating should have been a wise decision… however, they had gone into this battle with a 5 times number advantage, and the number 1 guild was allied with 30 or so other guilds against 2 or 3 guilds… if they retreated, it would be a massive humiliation. Putting the other guilds aside, the Yan Huang Alliance, which had always been victorious, would become a massive laughingstock. Even if they later destroyed the Skyfall Dynasty, they would never be able to raise their heads in front of the 3 Heavenly Kings again.

More and more people were sent to find the key points in the formation, but they would never be able to find them. This was because the idea that they thought was incredibly stupid, and in reality, was an impossibility.

This formation that covered 20 kilometres was set up and controlled by Su’Er alone.

The Heaven’s Secrets Absolute Formation was still being maintained, and Su’Er’s clothes were completely drenched in sweat. Her face was already shockingly pale, but she did not stop swirling the horsetail whisk around.

Li Xiao Xue’s gaze never left the battlefield, analysing the situation every second. For the battle to go this well, most of the credit went to Su’Er, but Li Xiao Xue had also made incredible contributions. While Su’Er’s Heaven’s Secrets Formations were incredibly powerful, Li Xiao Xue had maximised their might.

Yun Meng Xin stood beside Su’Er, continuously using her handkerchief to wipe away her sweat. The descriptions of the Heaven’s Secrets Absolute Formations had written that casting them required not only large amounts of MP, but also consumed one’s mental energy incredibly quickly… as for what would happen to a person who tried to use them when he or she was exhausted, that was not written.

Winter of That Year, Hundred Miles of Ice, Yun Feng, Against The Sky and Judging Sky couldn’t sit by and watch, so they had joined the battle. Skyfall and Xiao Qiu Feng, the two leaders who couldn’t allow themselves to be killed, watched the miraculous battle being fought by their guilds, causing their blood to boil. Their voices had already become hoarse from yelling, but each command was given with great vigour.

“Su Su, are you alright? Are you feeling very tired?” When Xiao Qi looked at Su’Er, her heart ached. It was evident just how exhausted Su’Er was.

Su’Er whirled her horsetail whisk, causing the formation to once again change. Because of this simple action, the battlefield of millions of players was once again greatly changed. Upon hearing Xiao Qi’s voice, a sweet smile appeared on her face, “I’m fine, and only feeling a bit tired. Don’t worry about me.”

“Su Su, if you’re too tired just take a break. Don’t force yourself.” Every bead of sweat that rolled down Su’Er’s forehead caused Yun Meng Xin’s heart to ache a bit more. She silently looked at this 16-year old girl… although she hadn’t seen Su Su for a long time, she had indeed grown up. The Su’Er who was gentle, meek, didn’t dare to talk to strangers, and always relied on others, had changed a battle of millions singlehandedly. At the same time, she carried the hope of so many people on her shoulders.

The Sword Emperor returned from the battlefield, once again sitting down to recover. Looking at the Sword Emperor, Li Xiao Xue raised her eyebrows. The Sword Emperor needed to rest because her sword intent relied on her mental energy. Despite being so powerful, the Sword Emperor was completely fatigued- what about Su’Er who had been going for even longer…

Looking at how pale Su’Er’s face was, Li Xiao Xue gave a light sigh as she picked up her communication device and called Chao Ying and Chao Xi.

“Ying and Xi, have you received any news from Ling Chen?”

“No. Tian Tian has stayed by his side the entire time, and he has not shown any signs of waking up. How’s the situation over there?”

“… I don’t know how long we can last for.”

After powerlessly putting down the communication device, a look of frustration appeared on Li Xiao Xue’s face. They had received miracle after miracle and had used their trump card. They had already stalled for as much time as possible… Ling Tian, why aren’t you here yet? Just where are you?

If Su’Er collapsed, the Heaven’s Secrets Formation would dissipate. If Ling Tian still didn’t appear, then everything they had done would still have been for nought.

………………………….

A dark world.

With an angelic companion like Sha Sha, Ling Chen did not feel lonely or bored on the way back. After Sha Sha dove into his embrace, she would occasionally lie outstretched, curled up, or even hang from him, but she refused to get off. She was so cute that Ling Chen couldn’t help but smile the entire time.

The road of light extended as far as the eye could see, and after seeing the same scenery for 10 hours, Ling Chen couldn’t help but feel annoyed. He looked down towards Shadissika in his embrace as he asked, “Sha Sha, do you know when we’ll reach the exit?”

“Does Ling Chen want to get back quicker?” Sha Sha asked as she smiled and looked up.

“Of course. There’s nothing to do here. I want to leave this place as quickly as possible,” Ling Chen replied as he smiled.

“Oh… right now, it’s just me and Ling Chen with nobody else to disturb us. I really like this peace and quiet, but if Ling Chen wants to go back that much, we should be there soon,” Shadissika said as she laughed.

Just as she spoke, a white circle of light appeared within Ling Chen’s field of vision.

Ling Chen quickly looked over, “What is that?”

“Wow! It looks like the exit! I was right! We’re at the exit.” Shadissika delightedly smiled and lay against Ling Chen’s chest, looking lazy and reluctant to get up.

I can finally leave this place… I hope this exit really will take me back to where I was before… Ling Chen’s arms, which were holding Sha Sha, slightly tightened as he quickened his pace and jogged over. He had originally thought that the circle of light was quite far away, but after a few steps, the circle of light quickly became bigger and bigger. In just a few moments, he was standing right in front of it.

Ling Chen hesitated before stepping into the circle of light. As the white light flashed, the white-haired girl in Ling Chen’s embrace opened her eyes and looked at the dark world that she would be leaving forever.

After walking into the circle of light, an intense white light obscured Ling Chen’s vision, causing him to subconsciously close his eyes. In the next moment, the air suddenly became cool as Sha Sha cried in delight.

Could it be...

Ling Chen immediately opened his eyes… the world in front of him was no longer dark. In front of him was the thing that had sucked him inside- the mysterious door!

Bang! Bang! Bang!

As Ling Chen appeared, the Celestial Slayer Insignia, Heaven Slayer Insignia, and God Slayer Insignia that had been socketed above the mysterious door fell to the ground and shattered. It was as if they had fulfilled their mission and had no use anymore.

“Wow! Where is this? The air is so cold! Could this be Ling Chen’s world?”

Sha Sha blinked as she excitedly looked around her. When she looked up to see the beautiful layer of ice, she started to yell out in joy.

That’s right, Ling Chen had returned to where he was before he was sucked into the mysterious door- the summit of the Godchild Peak.

Wait… Godchild Peak?!

Ling Chen suddenly realised something and looked down at the girl in his embrace. There was still a rosiness within her cheeks while her gaze was filled with curiosity. He stared in shock for a moment before asking, “Sha Sha… don’t you feel cold?”

The summit of the Godchild Peak was an extraordinarily cold place. Even Qi Yue, who was a spirit, had to seal herself off. Even most Mysterious God beings did not possess the ability to come to this place… and yet he didn’t see any abnormal reactions from Sha Sha’s body.

“Cold? Just a little bit. But it’s more cool than cold, and it’s very comfortable.” As Shadissika spoke she spread out her hands, feeling the air around them. She closed her eyes and smiled, a look of intoxication on her face.

Ling Chen fell silent and was speechless. Sha Sha’s entire body was snow-white... could it be that she was a snow-spirit? Maybe that was why she wasn’t afraid of the cold…
