Sky-breaking Shuttle was an extraordinary treasure in the legends. It could tear off the sky or break any kind of shelters.
It kept flying around in the darkness and emitted sharp lights consecutively. Each stream of the lights seemed to be able to destroy everything. They were dispelling the darkness, shattering the wall of the cave into pieces. Eventually, it hollowed out the Sound Beast Mountain creating a huge bottomless hole.
As the darkness had been dispersed, the scene inside there was gradually revealed.
The first thing that struck Shi Yan’s eyes was the three sparkling small silver strings which were wrapping around the end of the shuttle, pulling it so that it could not fly away.
The other end of the three silver strings hid inside the darkness so they could not be seen as of now.
Being wrapped around by the three silver strings, the Sky-breaking Shuttle, as it had lost its owner, no longer promoted its true attributes; instead, it could only fly disorderly in the air. It wasn’t able to escape from the three silver strings.
Those six leaders were standing one hundred meters away from the Sky-breaking Shuttle. They all had a somber countenance; all were motionlessly concentrating at that area.
Yu Rou had heard his shout from the distance. She turned around and asked, “Shi Yan, do you know it?”
She Yan nodded and replied honestly, “That is the Sky-breaking Shuttle. I had entered the Chasm Battlefield because of it. It is said that this thing can tear off every partition of space and break all kinds of shelters. Because its owner has been lost, otherwise, it would not have been restrained by anything.
The six leaders’ faces brightened up in joy.
“The ancestor’s guidance was not fake indeed. At the time the Sound Beast Mountain vanishes, we can find a way to go back.” Duo Long laughed out loud while pointing to the shuttle, which was wriggling nonstop, “That thing was obviously prepared for us. As long as we can get it, we will be able to get out of this damn place for real.”
“There is Heaven Flame over there, but it is the most brutal and anomalous of the Heaven Flames.” Shi Yan warned them after musing for a while.
“What?” Yi Tian Mo’s expression changed dramatically. He could not help but move backward a few steps. It looked obvious that he was extremely scared of something that was hiding inside the darkness over there, “You’ve just said that another kind of Heaven Flame exists inside there?”
“How could you know?” Di Shan asked.
The other people were also suspicious, looking at Shi Yan, waiting for his explanation.
“Heaven Flames could sense each other; thus, they know of each other’s existence.” Shi Yan walked forward slowly. He was cautious when he looked at Yi Tian Mo, Di Shan, and Yu Rou. He explained, “The Heaven Flame there should be the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame. In legends, it has existed since the beginning of the Heaven and Earth. It cannot burn substances, but it can burn any creatures’ souls.”
“The Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame!”
The three leaders of the Demonic Sound Clan screamed out simultaneously with a traumatic change on their faces. They all moved backward to Shi Yan’s direction.
“Not good …” Di Shan’s eyes sparked out a solemn light. A crystal suddenly flew out from his hand. As soon as it came out, it exploded and resulted in a faint blue color which then dispersed quickly, covering him and Yu Rou inside of it.
As Duo Long saw Di Shan taking out the blue crystal, he was a little astonished. He seemed to remember something and walked over to Di Shan’s place.
Without waiting for Duo Long to come closer, Di Shan harrumphed and looked towards him with unpleased eyes.
Duo Long felt ashamed, changed his direction embarrassingly, and did not continued approaching that blue aureole.
“Blue Star Crystal!” The Ice Cold Flame’s sense was suddenly sent out. “It is one of the extraordinary treasures which is able to resist the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame. The Blue Star Crystal is said to be the most mysterious crystal of the Blue Planet in the galaxy. It projects Blue Star Heaven Light, which could prevent the penetration of all kinds of souls’ forces. Even if it is the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame, it cannot immediately break the Blue Star Heaven Light. If you can get inside of its protection, you are certainly able to sustain the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame for a while.”
“I’ve actually prepared this crystal to deal with your Demonic Sound Clan. I didn’t expect that I have to use it now.” Di Shan caressed the precious crystal, pouring more of his powerful forces into it to stimulate the miraculous halo inside it. He said with a regretful tone, “The Blue Star Crystal is the consuming object. Its power is limited. The longer it is used, the more power it consumes. I am not sure how long this Blue Star Crystal can last …”
“We can use this Blue Star Light to enter that place over there. Even the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame cannot instantly destroy our souls. As long as we can prevent it long enough to get the shuttle out, we will go back immediately. What do you think?” Yu Rou suggested.
Di Shan nodded after contemplating for a while. He said nothing more, stepped towards the shuttle, which was flying deep inside the darkness.
Duo Long and the other three leaders of the Demonic Sound Clan all showed their surprise. They wanted to advance with Di Shan and Yu Rou, but they were still scared; thus, they had to stay at their location with confused faces.
“You can go as well. If you hide inside the Blue Star Light’s protection, the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame cannot harm you. Who knows, perhaps you would be able to tame it?” The Ice Cold Flame communicated with Shi Yan.
“What?” Shi Yan’s face changed slightly. “Is it possible to tame the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame? How could it be?”
“I don’t know, but your devilish ring does.” The Ice Cold Flame continued, “All are Heaven Flames. The Earth Flame and I are both confined inside of this ring. If it’s not because the ring’s spirit has loosened, none of my forces can be released. If this ring can confine both of us, it must be strong enough to deal with the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame. As long as your soul is not instantly destroyed, you actually have a chance.”
“Sounds right.” Shi Yan felt excited. He suddenly walked faster towards Di Shan and Yu Rou.
Di Shan, who was leading, stopped abruptly. He turned his head looking at Shi Yan, and shouted with a cold face, “What did you come here for?”
“I can help you.”
“The Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame is extremely dangerous. Even though you have the Blue Star Crystal, you are still scared of its soul devouring ability. Hmm, I think I have a way to deal with it. If you let me in, if the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame appears and behaves perversely, I can probably detain it!”
“Do you have the ability to detain it?”
“I can’t guarantee one hundred percent, but I am still very certain about it. We need to try to see if it’s possible or not.” Shi Yan was extremely honest when explaining, “Currently, I have two kinds of Heaven Flames at hand. Because I can keep these two Flames with me, I surely have the experience to deal with that kind of Flame there. You should trust me …”
“What?” The six pagan leaders all screamed out at the same time. They looked at Shi Yan as if he was a monster.
Yu Rou covered her mouth; her beautiful eyes were extremely frightened. She said with suspicion, “Did you just say that you have two kinds of Heaven Flame? Aren’t you kidding?”
Di Shan’s breath was heavy; his eyes rolled up like a buffalo’s eyes.
Shi Yan nodded, and replied calmly, “That’s right. Besides the Earth Flame, the other one is the Ice Cold Flame. Watch it.”
In a moment, the Icy Qi of the Ice Cold Flame spread out over Shi Yan’s body. His body was quickly frozen, turning into a big transparent ice chunk, which was sparking out glorious and splendid lights.
Six pagan leaders goggled their eyes with their mouth wide opened.
Di Shan reacted after a long while. He waved at Shi Yan and said, “You, you can come here …”
While saying, Di Shan urged more forces to pour into the Blue Star Crystal. More misty blue lights projected from inside of the Blue Star Crystal. These blue lights seemed to be gradually controlled, condensed into a chunk of lights, forming a human body shape.
Shi Yan was very determined. He retrieved the icy power of his body, and quickly returned to normal. He got inside of the chunk of blue lights instantly and leaned closely against Yu Rou.
As standing inside the blue lights, Shi Yan felt as if he was soaking in an ocean. It felt really comfortable.
“Let’s go.” Di Shan waited for Shi Yan to get in before advancing forwards. He did not want to waste any more powers of the Blue Star Crystal.
The other four people, Dua Long, Yi Tian Mo, Ya Meng, and Ka Ba, could only stare at the other three getting into the mysterious darkness. Their eyes beamed out a greedy light. They were also interested in the thing called “Sky-breaking Shuttle”. However, as they knew how dangerous the Nine Serenities Soul Devouring Flame was, they could only watch it from a distance.
Until the three people of Di Shan disappeared into the darkness, the four of them gathered and discussed with each other quietly.
The three of them, Di Shan, Yu Rou, Shi Yan, kept walking further in the dark. The distance between them and the shuttle got shortened. Some lights ahead became visible. When three of them could see the shuttle clearly, a dazzling halo suddenly emitted in the dark. It was unknown where this halo had come from.
A huge block of stone appeared in front of their eyes.
The stone platform had an octagonal shape, looked like it was made from some kind of strange inky-black lava. The block was as huge as half of a basketball field. A sparkling white chunk of the crystal was as big as a washbasin lay in the center of the stone platform. Inside of this crystal chunk, there was a stirring silver burning flame.
Miraculous heaven light struck down to the acute angle of the octagon-shaped platform, which connected to the sky above the Sound Beast Mountain. The Heaven Light covered the stone and created forces that sealed the crystal chunk as well as the silver flame inside of it.
Dense Heaven and Earth yin aura from everywhere inside of the Sound Beast Mountain was like they just found a way out, they urgently stormed towards the stone platform, joining the burning fires inside of the crystal chunk, making the silver burning flame become livelier. More and more of the forces were gathering…
The four Dead Spirit Beasts that had escaped the sea of fire created by the Thousand Earth Flame were hiding behind that huge stone platform quietly. Their murderous eyes stared at the invaders who daringly intruded here.
The shuttle which was as long as an arm was circling around the huge stone, as the three radiant silver strings wrapping it connected to the crystal chunk. Despite how much the shuttle was struggling, the three silver strings still got it tied tightly that it couldn’t be able to get out of the huge stone.
“That’s good. Your souls would help us get out of this place.“ An ambiguous peculiar spirit suddenly came out from inside of the stone. The silver burning flames inside of the crystal chunk condensed into a blurry human face. After receiving more Heaven and Earth yin, that face was exposed clearer little by little.”
