There was a huge star river in the sky, which was exactly like the pattern formed in the Yin Valley by the Sky Snake’s blood.
In that star river, every star was as big as a mountain, and the distance between the stars was like heaven and earth, hundreds of thousands of meters away.
Under the star river were various numerous clouds, floating freely, and which were either formed of fire, Yin Qi or poisonous air.
Gray sky and gray earth.
On the ground lay a huge statue with its back on the ground. The statue was of a muscular, handsome figure, and sculpted to be clothed with only a stone shorts.
The heart area of the stone statue was shining with starry light.
The starry light was attracting the power in the star river, and similarly to the light from the starry river was becoming concentrated in the heart of the stone statue.
The statue was carved very expertly, such that even the hair and veins were shown in exquisite delicacy. If one looked carefully, one could even see thousands of black spots moving through the veins.
On the right palm of the stone statue, a little ant was staring up at the sky with a surprised look.
That was Shi Yan!
After he arrived here, he was standing on the right palm of the statue, with oddly swaying plants all around him.
Those plants, which swayed with the wind, were ten meters high, and as thick as a human waist, looking like the statue’s hair.
Although he didn’t know that the plants looked like hair from up in the air.
In his eyes, the right palm of that statue was ten times larger than the God Stone Square in Tianyun City.
Standing on that palm, Shi Yan looked at the mysterious star river above him and was filled with amazement.
He wasn’t aware that he was on the palm of statue, nor did he know how huge the statue was. He had lost his sense of direction and was of the assumption that he was on a small hill.
The Yin Pearls in the Tian Que, Shen Que and Yin Du meridians suddenly started spinning, while a mysterious attraction force came from the heart of that stone statue.
Shi Yan’s body shook suddenly.
The heart area which attracted the star light was calling for the Yin Pearls inside Shi Yan, and the Yin Pearls spun, as if urging him to go to the heart area.
Standing on the palm of the stone statue, Shi Yan looked quite serious, and after a little hesitance, he dashed to the heart area of the statue directly.
Meanwhile, the small black men on the stone statue observed for a while, and realized the heart area was the most powerful place.
Therefore, after being still for a while, those people gathered at the chest of the stone statue.
Those people included the warriors from the Dark World, Mu Hui, Mu Yu Die, Di Yalan, and Beiming Ce. All warriors under the Earth Realm were moving towards the heart area.
Under the heels of the stone statue, Beiming Shang, Chi Xiao, Zhua Qi, the Dark Master, Yin Kui and Jiu Shan were suppressed by a huge power.
Warriors above Earth Realm were all suppressed under its heels, unable to move even a bit.
At that time, the group including Beiming Shang and Chi Xiao were trying to defend against the power which restrained them.
But, however hard they tried, they couldn’t get rid of that pressure or move an inch.
The Yin Pearls inside Shi Yan kept spinning, while Shi Yan held his breath and dashed toward the stone statue with a rigid face.
Beside Shi Yan, the hairs of the stone statue were swaying like tall trees and blocking his sight. He felt like he was in a jungle instead of the palm of the statue.
Not knowing how much time had passed, Shi Yan finally flew from the mountain-like palm to its right leg.
Shi Yan’s rushing body suddenly stopped as he looked ahead on alert.
From a deep hole in front of him, one after another flaming stone men suddenly jumped out!
These stone men were three meters tall and were wreathed in fire, giving off the smell of the Nine-headed Sky Snake.
If one looked down at it from upon the statue, he would find that that deep hole was actually the Yang Chi Meridian on its right arm!
The twelve flaming stone men seemed to be disgusted by the smell of life. Once Shi Yan approached the hole, they appeared and jumped on him.
Taking a deep breath, Shi Yan kept calm to operate his Petrification Martial Spirit and his skin turned dark brown in a short time.
After he operated his Petrification Martial Spirit, Shi Yan triggered the [Dark Light Shield] by moving his Profound Qi all over his body.
As the [Dark Light Shield] was formed, Shi Yan dashed out like a missile.
“Dang dang dang!”
Among the flaming stone men, Shi Yan turned his fingers into spears and struck the stone men.
The [Finger Spear], which could pierce through an Elementary Realm warrior, emitted the sound of metal clashing while striking the stone bodies.
The power of the fire went into Shi Yan’s fingers when he touched the stone men, and felt pain in his fingers.
His face changed, Shi Yan soon realized that the [Finger Spear] was inefficient when facing the stone men who were not made of flesh.
“Boom! Boom! Boom!”
Six stone men made flaming fists and punched Shi Yan together.
His [Dark Light Shield] couldn’t bear the attacks and fell apart.
Under those fists, Shi Yan was driven back in pain, his clothes were on fire.
Thanks to his Petrification Martial Spirit, his body was not hurt except for some pain.
With a gloomy face, Shi Yan could figure out that every one of the six stone man was tougher than a Human Realm warrior.
The [Finger Spear] was not working. He had to take another shot.
As his will changed, Shi Yan’s left hand gave out wisps of white smoke. Negative energy was triggered and combined with his Profound Qi. They flew out together and formed a huge [Gravitational Field].
With his will, the [Gravitational Field] moved swiftly and suddenly fell in the center of the stone men.
A strong power of attraction gushed out of the Field making all the stone men to struggle painfully.
Delighted, Shi Yan enhanced the power in the Field and focused to twist it.
“Pa! Pa! Pa!”
As the Field span, one stone man was shattered into pieces and was thrown out of the Field.
Shi Yan was a little relieved before his face changed again.
However, after leaving the Field, the scattered parts of the stone man began to reform together. In merely three seconds, it had recombined and jumped at Shi Yan again.
It was not killed!
Realizing that, Shi Yan’s face turned gloomier, and he triggered the Field again to change its position.
That stone man was wrapped again and shredded to pieces another time.
This time, Shi Yan didn’t try to kill them, but crossed the Field in an instant and continued to dash forward after all the stone men were entangled.
Half an hour later, from the deep hole of the stone statue’s Zhigou Meridian, one after another Yin Sha danced out.
Yin Sha was produced by warriors’ spirits which absorbed Yin Qi. It was a dead thing, but could use part of the warrior’s Martial Spirit. It was aggressive and in thirst of more spirits.
Those Yin Sha waved their claws and flew toward Shi Yan from the deep hole.
After a glance at the Yin Sha, Shi Yan’s face turned cold.
Inside the Yin pearl, wisps of Yin power pervaded and triggered the three Yin Swirls to spin, and a strong power of attraction broke out!
Those Yin Sha suddenly showed fear and escaped to the deep hole.
“You think you can escape?”
Shi Yan smiled coldly, and the Yin Swirls span even faster!
The Yin Sha struggled hard while being pulled by Shi Yan’s Yin Swirls, but still forced towards Shi Yan little by little.
The more they approached Shi Yan, the more they were they influenced by the Yin Swirl.
All of a sudden, one Yin Sha stopped struggling and turned into Yin Qi and went inside Shi Yan’s chest.
The Yin Sha dissolved in the Yin Swirls and turned into pure energy which was attached to the center of the Yin Swirls.
The rest of the Yin Sha struggled in fear but couldn’t get escape the Yin Swirls. They were pulled in and turned into Yin Qi inside of it.
Quickly, all the Yin Sha were absorbed and Shi Yan continued advancing.
At the same time, the same thing was happening at every corner of the stone statue.
Beiming Ce, Mu Yu Die, Di Yalan, Mu Hui and warriors from the Dark World also met danger when they headed for the heart. They were all trapped by the flaming stone men, Yin Sha, poisonous demons and mud dragons which came from the meridians of the stone statue.
Shi Yan continued to rush forward.
On his way, he came across more flaming stone men and Yin Sha, which were taken care of by the same means, and then he came to the right elbow slowly.
Shi Yan stopped again.
Ahead of him were five warriors from the Dark World, who all were around the First or Second Sky of the Human Realm. They had been separated from the others by the Gate of Heaven when thy entering. And now, all of them were heading for the heart but smelled like scorched flesh.
The five warriors from the Dark World also spotted Shi Yan.
They turned back, glanced at Shi Yan, and came to an agreement silently. With cold eyes, they walked towards Shi Yan slowly.
“Warriors from the Dark World?”
Shi Yan’s eyes were like torches as he spotted the sign of the Dark World on the bare shoulder of one warrior.
That guy yelled when the rest separated to encircle Shi Yan in an arc.
“You are seeking for death!”
With a cold face, Shi Yan’s eyes showed a bloodthirst. After a shout, he dashed out like a sharp sword.
