Life energy was circulating in his right arm and death energy was circulating in his left. The two utterly different powers of life and death projected out of his left and right arms.
Facing the glaring sword light of the Sky Cracking Sword, Shi Yan, who was in the [Rampage] state, seemed to have incited all of the potential in his body.
In the moment of life and death, his five senses became unprecedentedly sensitive. The circulation rate of the two powers in both his left and right arms was astonishingly high.
The right arm swelled up and became twice as big as usual, while the left arm shrivelled, and shrunk twice as much as under [Rampage] mode. It was like a layer of skin wrapping around the bone, looking very eerie.
The patterns on the two hands suddenly shot out bright beams of light. The two vast surging powers simultaneously shot out from his palms!
The palms of his two hands separately formed seven [Life Seals], and seven [Death Seals]. The [Life Seals] and [Death Seals] flew out at the same time!
As soon as a [Life Seal] and a [Death Seal] were formed, they immediately merged into one. In a mere moment, the seven [Life Seals] and the seven [Death Seals] all merged together into each other.
The [Seal of Life and Death] was formed!
“Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom!”
The seven [Seals of Life and Death] suddenly expanded multiple times. Like seven shining door panels, they fiercely flew at the oncoming Sky Cracking Sword.
Frightening blasts suddenly exploded and the fiery red and icy blue luster on the Sky Cracking Sword abruptly dimmed. An unpredictable mysterious power suddenly rushed into the Sky Cracking Sword from the [Seals of Life and Death].
“Hum, hum, hum, hum!”
The Sky Cracking Sword rang in the air and was blown away by the force and kept tumbling in the sky, all of its luster was lost.
Beiming Ce, who was controlling the Sky Cracking Sword with his mind suddenly became as pale as a sheet. Blood dripped out of his seven apertures and he let out a shrill scream.
The Sky Cracking Sword and his mind corresponded to each other. The heavy damage to the Sky Cracking Sword had an empathic effect on him, and together both he and the Sky Cracking Sword were badly injured.
For those who control swords with their mind, once the sword itself gets damaged, the owner will also be heavily injured.
After tumbling for a while, the Sky Cracking Sword finally fell to the ground a hundred meters away. Its luster dimmed and it lost all its spirituality.
Beiming Ce stopped screaming. He kept using his mind to try and summon the Sky Cracking Sword, but he realized that the sword could not respond. Beiming Ce was filled with horror and for the first time, his expression showed a trace of fear.
After blasting out the [Seal of Life and Death], the power in Shi Yan’s body was depleted by a third and he also felt quite weak.
But, when he saw that the Sky Cracking Sword lose its luster after this one hit, he felt delighted inside and his spirits rose.
And when he saw that Beiming Ce was bleeding out of his seven apertures, he was even more thrilled.
Mu Yu Die and Di Yalan both blankly stared at Shi Yan. They could not hide the surprise on their faces. Mu Yu Die even opened her mouth wide, her little hand covering her mouth, and stopped herself from letting out a scream.
Shi Yan, who was only in the Human Realm, fought head-on, and was able to blow away the Spirit level weapon, Sky Cracking Sword, from the Disaster Realm Beiming Ce! And he was even able to destroy the spiritual connection in the Sky Cracking Sword!
What is this?
Mu Yu Die was appalled inside, she couldn’t believe her eyes.
Is this really the boy from the Dark Forest?
Mu Yu Die suddenly realized that she didn’t know Shi Yan anymore. The currently arrogant Shi Yan became more and more unfamiliar in her eyes, such that she didn’t even know how to handle her relationship with Shi Yan anymore.
“Ding Yan!” Di Yalan exclaimed, she shouted, “What are you doing?”
Mu Yu Die jumped, and also said anxiously, “Ding Yan! Don’t act recklessly! Beiming Shang is here too. If you touch the son of the Beiming family, it won’t be good for you, nor for the Shi family!”
Shi Yan’s expression was cold, he didn’t say a thing and chose to ignore these two women.
He bound Beiming Ce using the [Gravitational Field].
Beiming Ce just sat there unmoving, as he couldn’t sense the existence of the [Gravitational Field]. In his moment of carelessness he was trapped and he couldn’t escape the gravitational force of the field.
This time, Shi Yan also added negative energy into the [Gravitational Field]!
Now the field now had three completely different forces; Yin power, Profound Qi, and negative energy. The three forces mixed together, increasing the power of the field by more than double!
In the new [Gravitational Field], Beiming Ce was in an extremely helpless state. The muscles on his face trembled, and within the insane whirling of the field, all the Profound Qi in his body was bound.
Only the Polar Ice Flames Martial Spirit remained unaffected by the [Gravitational Field]. It still persistently flowed into the crystal armor and firmly protected Beiming Ce’s body.
Shi Yan swiftly flew into the field.
He swung up his left arm and the [Death Seal] formed from negative energy suddenly shot out and flew towards Beiming Ce’s head without hesitation.
A crisp fracturing sound came from Beiming Ce’s skull. The devastating deadly energy in the [Death Seal] poured into his head and cut off his life force.
Wisps of pure vital energy quickly flowed out of Beiming Ce’s body.
Soon, Beiming Ce was turned into a dried-up corpse and all of his Profound Qi was absorbed by Shi Yan.
The field disappeared in a flash.
Beiming Ce’s corpse fell to the ground, his eyes still wide open, as if he had died with regrets.
He didn’t even have time to shout out threats.
Once Beiming Ce died, his body shrank and the crystal armor on his body was obviously a whole lot looser.
Shi Yan took in a deep breath and coldly stripped the crystal armor off of Beiming Ce’s body, bluntly placing it in his backpack. Then he didn’t even look at the dazed Mu Yu Die and Di Yalan and quickly left, also picking up the dimmed Sky Cracking Sword along the way.
On Beiming Ce, these two things were the most powerful and left the most powerful impression in his mind.
Whether it was the Sky Cracking Sword or the crystal armor, both were extraordinary treasures. Even if Shi Yan couldn’t use them himself, he didn’t want to let the two girls gain any advantages.
“Ding Yan, you’re crazy! You’re absolutely crazy!” Mu Yu Die said in a traumatize daze, she murmured, “Beiming Ce is like Beiming Shang’s very own life. You killed Beiming Ce! That means Beiming Shang will not only deal with you, he’s going to destroy the whole Shi family! Ding Yan, you made a mistake! You really made a mistake! You’re digging your own grave!”
“Bitch!” Shi Yan turned his head, he gave her a cold and stern glance, and said ruthlessly, “If you keep blabbing, I’ll kill you too!”
“What, what did you say!” Mu Yu Die’s expression was filled with disbelief, she raised her hand and pointed at Shi Yan and shrieked “Ding Yan! I’ve saved your life! And this is how you treat me!”
Shi Yan’s face was full of impatience, his eyes were cold, and he swiftly moved to Mu Yu Die’s side.
Shi Yan’s hand slapped across Mu Yu Die’s face and made her stumble back a few steps, leaving a bright red handprint on her face.
“Bitch! Listen up, I don’t owe you anything! If you keep rattling in my ear, I will make you shut up once and for all!” Shi Yan coldly gazed at Mu Yu Die, whose demeanor was a little insane. He said with a murderous look, “You know how I am, I never give mercy when it comes to killing, and that includes women!”
“Ding Yan!” Di Yalan screamed, “How could you hit Xiao Die!”
“You shut up too!”
Shi Yan sneered and gazed at her with a cold look in his eyes, “When we parted our ways in the Stone Woods we broke off all relations. You have no right to talk crap about me! Don’t think for a moment that there’s something between us just because I fucked you. You know exactly what you gained from me! I owe you nothing!”
Di Yalan’s delicate body shook as she looked at the ruthless Shi Yan, and she could only feel as if she were in an ice cave, both her heart and her body were frozen solid.
Di Yalan tightly clenched her teeth and she tried hard not to let herself cry, but bright teardrops still appeared in the corner of her eyes. Her heart felt as if it was pierced by a sharp knife and the pain seeped into her heart!
In this moment, Di Yalan finally realized how much she cared about this man. Looking at the cold expression on his face, Di Yalan finally knew what she had given up for the rest of her life.
“Ding Yan! You will regret this! You will definitely regret this!” Mu Yu Die covered her face, and screeched hysterically, “You will definitely regret this! You and the Shi family will all be destroyed by Beiming Shang!”
Shi Yan was just about to leave, but he turned around and gave another slap to Mu Yu Die’s face. His expression was dark and he said in scorn, “Bitch! You think that once you sought refuge in the Beiming family, Beiming Shang was going to take revenge for you? You’re joking! Beiming Shang is a fierce and ambitious man. You think he was going to fight to the death with the Dark World for a woman? Do you know why the people of the Dark World are here? Do you know what fate you’ll be facing once you walk out of here?”
Mu Yu Die’s pretty face turned pale and her eyes were filled with desperation, finally she made no more sound.
She already guessed this possibility, but refused to admit it. Now that Shi Yan mercilessly said it out loud, Mu Yu Die finally couldn’t ignore her speculation anymore. She felt cold from head to toe, and felt as if all the hard work she put in was just an illusion.
“From now on, you both have nothing to do with me!” Shi Yan heartlessly glanced at the two girls for the last time, and turned around to walk towards the pit. He said coldly with his back facing the girls, “Don’t get in my way, or else you’ll share the same fate as Beiming Ce!”
Then, Shi Yan slowly walked towards the pit.
Di Yalan’s face was filled with tears and her limbs were frozen, as if the life force in her body was all taken out. Her heart felt as if it was ripped to pieces, the pain pierced through her heart.
Mu Yu Die’s pretty face had a red handprint on it. Her face was full of desperation and it looked like her life force was also cut off. She stared aimlessly into the sky as if she didn’t know where to go from here, she had lost her way.
“Xiao Die, we… we’ve really made a mistake.” Di Yalan’s voice choked as she covered her face and quietly sobbed.
Mu Yu Die couldn’t hold it in anymore, she finally covered her face and cried. She cried in the most heartbreaking of ways, as if she wanted to cry out all the sadness in her heart.
Shi Yan stood at where the pit was, his expression cold, as if he didn’t hear the weeping of the two girls at all. He only furrowed his brows and looked forward.
“Lub-dub! Lub-dub, lub-dub!”
The Yin Pearls in the Shen Que, Tian Que, and Yin Du meridians pulsed even more merrily. After coming here, the Yin Pearls had been extremely active.
Looking at the floating, glistening crystal, Shi Yan realized this was what was summoning the Yin Pearls. The mysterious power coming out of the crystal must have been resonating with the Yin Pearls at a distance, the two sides seemed to have some sort of mysterious connection.
However, standing outside the pit, Shi Yan didn’t know where to start. He had no idea how to get his hands on the crystal.
He pondered for a moment, then tried to stir the Yin Swirls, forming Yin Qi in his palm.
The Yin Qi slowly gathered and flew out of Shi Yan’s palm, forming into a giant hand made of dark green light which grabbed at that crystal from far away.
Wisps of strange Yin power were released from the six Yin Pearls. The Yin power was like invisible strands of thread that seemed to also flow into the crystal.
The dark glowing green hand slowly pressed down and steadily landed on the light shield of the crystal.
Suddenly a slit cracked open in the light shield. The barrier that kept defying Beiming Ce’s Polar Ice Flames now softened down by itself and opened up wide for Shi Yan’s dark glowing hand.
The crystal suddenly gave off a beautiful dazzling light and slowly floated towards that big dark glowing hand.
