In the Seven-star Blue Sea of the human world.
Mo Qianfan and Yu Suying, who were both God domain experts, looked dejected. Now and then, they looked down at the calm, quiet sea where Nie Tian had disappeared.
Zhao Shanling released the Voidspirit Pagoda, which held many spatial mysteries, to swim around in the depths of the sea for a while before he turned to Dong Li and said, “Compared to Pei Qiqi’s Space Boundaries Crystal, my Voidspirit Pagoda is much weaker. The pagoda can’t go down to the bottom of the sea to detect Nie Tian’s tracks.”
He couldn’t even go that deep if he sank with the Voidspirit Pagoda.
Dong Li could hardly remain calm as she said, “Nie Tian, Luo Wanxiang, and Pei Qiqi all dove into the Seven-star Blue Sea and disappeared without a trace. Even Senior Mo and Senior Yu can’t see what’s going on at the bottom of the sea clearly. I’m afraid that Luo Wanxiang will make Nie Tian and Pei Qiqi...”
Everyone was silent.
Ji Yuanquan of the Void Spirit Society, who had specially come from the Heaven Span Pavilion, also had a gloomy expression. “It is detestable that the outsiders have come to attack us on such a large scale. Fan Tianze and Chu Rui can’t pay attention to the movements of the Seven-star Blue Sea at the same time. Only after the war situation becomes stable over there, will they be able to come here to see what Luo Wanxiang was up to.”
Suddenly, a gentle, remote voice rang out. “I know what Luo Wanxiang is up to.”
A seemingly hidden ancient starship suddenly appeared.
The ancient starship looked dim and lacked luster. It was made of some special taupe metal, and had dark ripples flowing through its hull.
“Shadow Warship!” Ji Yuanquan shouted.
Yu Suying was taken aback. “Jiang Yuanchi!”
The Shadow Warship, which was hundreds of meters long and looked like a giant flying shuttle, quietly arrived at the surface of Seven-star Blue Sea without a sound.
The Shadow Warship of the Shadow Society was the most special starship in the human world.
It was famous for its speed and lightness.
Its drawback was that its hull wasn’t strong enough. If it was attacked, it would easily break apart.
The many mysterious formations engraved on the Shadow Warship could make it faster and nimbler. There were also a number of formations that could hide it as long as they were triggered by Jiang Yuanchi’s shadow power.
Once those formations were triggered, it could escape anyone’s soul perception unless it was someone whose cultivation base was higher than Jiang Yuanchi’s.
The fact that the Shadow Warship that was famous in the human world suddenly manifested out of nowhere meant that Jiang Yuanchi, sectmaster of the Shadow Society, must be in it.
Otherwise, Mo Qianfan, Ji Yuanquan and Yu Suying, who were God domain experts, would have perceived it.
Even Shangguan Zhi, the vice sectmaster of the Shadow Society, couldn’t trigger those formations to hide the Shadow Warship because he didn’t practice shadow power.
Sure enough, as Yu Suying let out an exclamation, Jiang Yuanchi, who cultivated both light power and shadow power and had disappeared after the battle outside the Realm of Divine Seal, showed himself on the Shadow Warship with a calm expression.
You Qimiao of the Remote Beginning Heavenly Sect, Song Chequan of the Jade Heaven Sect, Shangguan Zhi, and Duan Hongwen were standing on either side of him.
Five God domain experts!
All the Saint domain experts present gasped in great shock. “Jiang Yuanchi!”
Ji Yuanquan’s face suddenly turned very gloomy. “Jiang Yuanchi! Since you have your own consciousness instead of being enslaved by Gupi, then you should not have colluded with it! At the very least, humans are now being attacked by outsiders and Ancientspirits in the Heaven Span Pavilion’s domains. Why have you brought these experts here instead of joining the defense with the Heaven Span Pavilion?
“Only because of your personal enmities? Because Nie Tian’s master Wu Ji took away the Gupi that you relied on with the river of time?
“Are you here to take vengeance?”
Everyone was on-guard, as if they were facing formidable enemies.
The Shadow Society had joined hands with the Remote Beginning Heavenly Sect, the Jade Heaven Sect, and the Profound Purity Palace, and conspired to replace the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace and take over its vast territory.
Since the Remote Beginning Heavenly Sect had set foot in the Realm of Maelstrom, they had been badly injured again and again. Duan Hongwen had been seriously injured by Nie Tian, and You Qimiao had also been forced to retreat.
Moreover, Nie Tian had suppressed the Jade Heaven Sect during his ‘journey of fury,’ which had resulted in the destruction of the Realm of Jade Billows.
Afterwards, Jiang Yuanchi, who had reached a secret agreement with Gupi, had been exposed by Nie Tian in the Realm of Divine Seal. He had had no choice but to separate himself from Gupi. Because of this, his plan was once again destroyed by Nie Tian.
No one was surprised that Jiang Yuanchi hated Nie Tian.
But this was a very sensitive time, as outsiders were invading!
Ji Yuanquan rebuked Jiang Yuanchi out of righteousness; he wasn’t wrong.
“Vengeance?” Jiang Yuanchi was speechless, shook his head and said, “Ji Yuanquan, you underestimate me. If I wanted to kill Nie Tian out of personal enmity, there are better ways than this. How hard would it be for me to kill him as long as he travels without Chu Rui and Fan Tianze? I have the rest of my life to find an opportunity like that.”
Mo Qianfan snorted. “That may not necessarily be the case! In the Realm of Divine Seal, you didn’t succeed. Given Nie Tian’s progress in his cultivation, I don’t think it will be long before you cannot easily defeat him.”
Jiang Yuanchi chuckled and didn’t defend himself. He just said, “I didn’t come here to take my revenge. I’ve come for the Seven-star Blue Sea. To be exact, it should be called the Seven-star… Realm Sea!”
Ji Yuanquan was slightly surprised, “Did your Shadow Society know that this is a realm sea?”
Jiang Yuanchi responded by asking rhetorically, “What do you think? My Shadow Society is informed of even the littlest things that happen in human domains. Your Void Spirit Society, the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace, the Heaven Span Pavilion, and the Five Elements Sect all have my Shadow Society’s informants. We’ve been keeping an eye on the Realm Sea for a long time.”
You Qimiao chimed in. “In fact, one of the most important reasons why the Remote Beginning Heavenly Sect came to the Realm of Maelstrom to occupy Nie Tian’s three domains was that we wanted to gain control of the Seven-star Realm Sea. Unfortunately, because of Nie Tian, we failed to take over the three domains as planned.”
Jiang Yuanchi squinted as he said, “It’s not too late. Now is a good time. While the other people have left to fight against the outsiders, we can just finish the rest of our plan.”
Then, he tapped his head and said to Ji Yuanquan, as if he had just remembered something, “I forgot. I know what Luo Wanxiang of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace wants to do.”
“What does he want to do?” Ji Yuanquan asked, suppressing his anger.
Jiang Yuanchi’s smile faded and spoke, his face grim, “There is a portal sitting at the bottom of the Seven-star Realm Sea. It connects to another world! I believe that there are also records of it in your sect’s ancient secret records.”
Ji Yuanquan was surprised. “I know of no such records.”
Jiang Yuanchi was condescending as he said, “You don’t know because your status isn’t high enough. Only sect leaders like Qu Yi and Xuan Guangyu know of its existence.”
Ji Yuanquan froze for a while before shouting. “Did you learn about the Seven-star Realm Sea and the portal from…?”
He stopped himself before he could say the words “Xuan Guangyu.”
Even so, Jiang Yuanchi smiled and nodded. “Yes, we are here for the portal. I suppose it’s because he wants to open the portal and explore another world that Luo Wanxiang has been planning for a long time. He and I have never communicated or contacted each other in secret. I only guessed what he was after through some clues.”
Then, he looked at You Qimiao and said with a smile, “Sectmaster You. You’ll stay here while I go down and see if the portal is open.”
