From inside the Dragon skeleton, the Holy Spirit G.o.d screamed out, continuously releasing soul forces with the hopes of changing the situation.
Suddenly, the Icy Crystal Bone Dragons, which had been tied up by Shi Yan's Sea of Consciousness, violently wriggled while their soul forces were gradually increasing.
However, they still underestimated Shi Yan's soul competency.
In the abandoned land, Shi Yan had continuously studied different magical spiritual Upanishads of the Demonic Sound Clan. Moreover, he had also taken Pan Zhe and the other warriors to be his experimental human test subjects. Although his understanding of the souls was still not as well as that of Yi Tian Mo and the other leaders of the Demonic Sound Clan, his perception of the spiritual Upanishads had been much more profound if compared with ordinary people or even some normal pagans of the Demonic Sound Clan.
Anyway, not all of the Demonic Sound Clan's pagans had a chance to study the most marvelous miraculous secret scriptures of this Clan.
On the one hand, Shi Yan had a thorough perception of the spiritual Upanishads, learned by heart all kinds of soul techniques of the Demonic Sound Clan. On the other hands, his five Devils in the Sea of Mind from the Blood Vein Ring were extremely mystical, possessed devilish powers that could even surprise and puzzle Yi Tian Mo, the Demonic Sound Clan's leader as well as the expertise in the spiritual Upanishads.
With all of the above reasons, if the Holy Spirit G.o.d still considered Shi Yan as an ordinary warrior, it would suffer a great loss.
"It's not because of you!" Shi Yan shouted coldly. His eyes shot out frigid rays like the freezing aura in an ice cellar. Thin milk-white frost ma.s.sively spread out from the pores of his body.
It was the Icy Cold power that the Ice Cold Flame poured into his body. Thin smoke hovered around covering him, created a natural icy shield which quietly protected him from the imminent attacks of the Holy Spirit G.o.d.
At the same time.
The five Devils, who had just returned with cruel and fierce appearances, suddenly dashed towards those small Icy Crystal Bone Dragons which were being tied up.
As the Icy Crystal Bone Dragon saw the five Devils penetrating into the Sea of Consciousness, they started to struggle constantly, trying to escape from the shackles inside the Sea of Consciousness.
However, Shi Yan's host soul inside the Sea of Consciousness kept launching tenacious binding forces, filling the beams of lights which were fastening the Icy Crystal Bone Dragons. No matter how much those Icy Crystal Bone Dragons tried, they couldn't get out of this shackle.
"Don't!" The Holy Spirit G.o.d ear-piercingly cried out. It wanted to fly out of the Dragon Crystal but was entangled by the burning fires of the Ten Thousand Year Earth Flame.
More horrendous soul attacks were discharged from the Dragon Crystal. Those soul forces alternatively turned to the ethereal figures of mighty beasts which were roaring and growling. They stormed towards Shi Yan's Sea of Consciousness one by one.
Right at this moment, the soul auras of Yi Tian Mo, Ya Meng, and Ka Ba suddenly appeared inside the freezing dragon skeleton.
When Shi Yan's Sea of Consciousness opened up, and the Heaven Eye brightened, he saw Yi Tian Mo, Ya Meng, and Ka Ba, who had used their soul state to appear here, immediately prevent the ethereal beasts that had been released by the Holy Spirit G.o.d.
Taking this chance, the host soul inside his Sea of Consciousness then put forth all of its strength to bind dozens of those transparent Icy Crystal Bone Dragons.
Shi Yan understood that tens of these Icy Crystal Bone Dragons were the pure soul forces of the Holy Spirit G.o.d. These forces were tremendous enough to destroy his sea of consciousness completely. Moreover, these soul forces also contained some terrifying powers.
The five Devils would possibly swallow those mighty soul forces.
When the five Devils were showing their strong greed, Shi Yan immediately knew that these Icy Crystal Bone Dragons were certainly the miracle medicines for the five Devils to make the transformation breakthrough. Swallowing up these Icy Crystal Bone Dragons obviously allowed the five Devils to get stronger and their soul forces to soar.
That was such a chance that was hard to have in a thousand year.
The five Devils growled and flew up catching their preys, rushing to tear down dozens of those Icy Crystal Bone Dragons. The five Devils devoured them as if they were their real preys, joyfully enjoyed them so much that ice rubbles from those Icy Crystal Bone Dragons were showered about everywhere.
Inside the Sea of Consciousness, while the five Devils were devouring those Icy Crystal Bone Dragons, their bodies gradually transformed.
The formerly ambiguous ethereal bodies of the five Devils now became clearer. Even the strange devilish patterns on their bodies could now be seen little by little. There was also a faint black light moving inside their eerie bodies; even their forms seemed to be a little bit mightier.
The five Devils Dozens had completely devoured dozens of the Icy Crystal Bone Dragons within ten breaths.
After having eaten all those Icy Crystal Bone Dragons, the five Devils seemed not to be satisfied yet. They flew out of the Sea of Consciousness again, turned into furious ten-meter-tall Devils flying around the Holy Spirit G.o.d to find a chance to take actions.
Closing his eyes and using the soul consciousness to sense everywhere, Shi Yan saw the three people of Yi Tian Mo's group uniting with each other to deal with the Holy Spirit G.o.d's soul attacks.
Being the leaders of the Demonic Sound Clan, their soul competencies were exceptional indeed. Even though the Holy Spirit G.o.d, who was called G.o.d, had to show its helplessness when facing their soul defense.
The Ten Thousand Year Earth Flame was still constantly burning the Dragon Crystal making the Holy Spirit G.o.d unable to release all of its forces. Dozens of flows of pure soul forces that had turned to Icy Crystal Bone Dragons had been devoured and cleared out.
The Holy Spirit G.o.d had lost a lot of its forces and was nearly unable to resist anymore.
The Holy Spirit G.o.d was screeching noisily, using its forces to cope with the soul defense of Yi Tian Mo, Ya Meng, and Ka Ba. At the same time, it also had to deal with the Ten Thousand Year Earth Flame.
The Holy Spirit G.o.d was powerful indeed. Regretfully, it was not a true G.o.d after all.
Eventually, after constantly attacking it without receiving significant results, the Ten Thousand Year Earth Flame condensed its forces again, using the forces of the Sun Refined Spirit inside the Earth Flame to increase the burning fires to one level higher.
The Earth Flame which was wrapping the Dragon Crystal released the scorching heat like the heat of the sun at noon instantly. The fusion of this blazing heat with the burning forces of the Earth Flame tripled the Earth Flame's burning fires.
"Crack crack crack."
The Dragon Crystal produced strange echoes all of a sudden.
The peculiar liquid inside it moved slower; bubbles boiled more and more.
"In fact, we can still negotiate more carefully. You will not want anything to happen to me. If I am not here, the Sky and Earth aura in this area will dissolve. I know the Sky and Earth aura is extremely crucial for your cultivations. Don't you want to see this island become a desert island?" The Holy Spirit G.o.d moved inside the Dragon Crystal, transformed slowly, and gradually condensed into an ambiguous face.
"Five Devils retreat!" Shi Yan used his spirit to withdraw the five Devils. The host soul continually released soul fibers like soul tentacles to comfort the vibrations inside the Sea of Consciousness and calm the seething Sea of Consciousness.
After the greedy five Devils, which were flying around the dragon crystal, had received Shi Yan's call, they reluctantly came back from the dragon crystal, turning into beams of black lights and vanishing on top of Shi Yan's head. They then reappeared inside his Sea of Consciousness and gradually became restful again.
Although the five Devils had already returned, Shi Yan was still very cautious. His eyes coldly looked at the ambiguous face that the Holy Spirit G.o.d had created inside the dragon crystal and coldly said, "Now what? Are you scared? Didn't you want to seize my body forcefully?"
"Now I know that I can't be successful." The Holy Spirit G.o.d released a long sigh. The ambiguous face slightly shook as though it touched the pellucid walls of the dragon crystal. It hastily said, "Retrieve this d.a.m.n Heaven flame; otherwise if the Dragon Crystal's icy power is totally consumed, I will be openly exposed. I will be screwed by that time, and the thick Sky and Earth aura here will also disappear. You certainly don't want that."
"No, I don't care." Shi Yan shook his head and casually said, "At most, I will relocate to another island. There are many islands with dense Sky and Earth aura. I don't mind moving to another place, but I do care more about destroying you."
The Holy Spirit G.o.d trembled while contemplated without saying anything.
"Recently, dozens of the Icy Crystal Bone Dragons condensed from your pure soul forces are indeed the miracle nutritious medicines for souls. I will burn your Dragon Crystal's sh.e.l.l, wait until your soul is completely exposed, perhaps I can both use the heaven flame to refine and absorb your soul. I feel that this is even worth than having a cultivating place with full of Sky and Earth aura."
Shi Yan laughed coldly. He didn't care about the Holy Spirit G.o.d's life and death except for his benefits.
The Holy Spirit G.o.d trembled even more.
"Keep burning! Burn that Dragon Crystal into ashes." Shi Yan's face was cruel while ordering the Ten Thousand Year Earth Flame that was currently wrapping that Dragon Crystal.
Receiving Shi Yan's order, the Earth Flame put forth more efforts, pouring more burning flame like molten steel onto the dragon crystal, gradually dissolving the icy part.i.tion wall outside of the dragon crystal.
If the situation continued like this, the dragon crystal would meltdown shortly.
The three people of Yi Tian Mo's group also understood Shi Yan's intention. They coldly smiled while increasing their soul protecting forces, establishing colorful layers after layers of protecting walls to prevent the Holy Spirit G.o.d from acting crazily and taking risks to release one strike that could break even jade or stones.
"Why are all of you pushing me? I only want to survive, become a living creature with blood and flesh, not some illusory G.o.d. I don't want to be taken advantage of nor just being a supplementing medicine for the others to consume and gain the abilities to break through, and then ending up heartlessly being swallowed eventually. I only want … to live."
The Holy Spirit G.o.d screamed out like crazy. Flows of soul forces, which were as sharp as sabers, were shot out. He seemed to be uncontrollable soon.
Shi Yan's face remained unchanged while he quietly released his soul consciousness to sense around, bringing his spirit close to the dragon crystal, quietly speculating the Holy Spirit G.o.d's actions from the dragon crystal's soul vibrations.
Your soul wants to act recklessly.
Shi Yan felt that his heart was freezing. He seemed to have figured out something, contemplated for a while before shouting, "Alright, we can talk. Don't continue like I will live and you must die." While talking, Shi Yan also released a beam of soul consciousness to send a message to Yi Tian Mo and the other two and gently instructed the Earth Flame at the same time, "No need to increase the forces anymore."
The extreme hot aura of the Earth Flame which had been covering the dragon crystal was instantly decreasing.
The soul figures of Yi Tian Mo and the other two leaders also slowly moved backward behind Shi Yan. The soul fastening power that had been approaching the Dragon Crystal was also weakened little by little and turned into the defending forces.
The feeling of anxiety and insecurity of the Holy Spirit G.o.d gradually calmed down and returned to normal after Shi Yan had made some concessions.
"What do you want? Don't you want to kill me?" The Holy Spirit G.o.d stayed inside the Dragon Crystal observing Shi Yan, "Are you going to comfort my feelings and wait until I am neglectful, you will then take this chance to attack me stealthily and ultimately absorb my soul."
Shi Yan's countenance didn't change, but he was astonished deep inside.
The Holy Spirit G.o.d had accurately said what was in his mind.
When the Holy Spirit G.o.d was not taking precautions, he would ask Yi Tian Mo and the Earth Flame to unite with each other to launch a full-power strike, tightly binding the Holy Spirit G.o.d. Before its soul exploded, he would take everything of it, control its soul so that the five Devils could gradually absorb it.
The soul explosion was so extremely violent that it could kill anything. It could create a soul black hole attracting all of the surrounding creatures' souls.
When a soul exploded, its aura would vanish; nothing of the soul forces would remain; no one could take any benefits from that exploded soul.
Once the Holy Spirit G.o.d's soul had exploded, Shi Yan wouldn't get any benefits; his soul could also be attracted by the soul black hole that the soul explosion had created, which possibly led to the unexpected fatal danger.
That was not what he wanted.
"In fact, we can talk in peace. Your being alive is more useful for me." Shi Yan suddenly revealed a smile, pointed the Blood Vein Ring towards the Earth Flame to call it back.
The Earth Flame and he had a close spiritual interaction; thus, it naturally understood his intention. Right after he had moved his hand, the Earth Flame immediately turned to a beam of flames getting back into the Blood Vein Ring.
As soon as the Earth Flame had disappeared, the uncomfortable heating temperature inside the dragon crystal had completely gone.
The freezing aura like an ice cellar flooded the entire dragon skeleton once again. The Dragon Crystal, which wasn't entangled by the Earth Flame anymore, became splendidly translucent. The freezing aura inside the dragon skeleton turned into glittering ice dots like snowflakes falling to the dragon crystal and being absorbed entirely by the dragon crystal, which made the dragon crystal more brightened, and the icy aura had become more tremendous.
The Holy Spirit G.o.d didn't say anything more. It kept silent and observed every single move of Shi Yan's without daring to be neglectful.
It seemed to have gone through many treacheries and experienced people's malicious hearts. Especially Shi Yan's cold-heartiness had left a deep impression on it. It didn't expect that a cruel person like Shi Yan could even have a conscience.
It even a.s.sumed that Shi Yan would sneakily attack it, so it was waiting and defending with all of its powers.
"You guys go up first." Shi Yan contemplated for a while before turning towards the ethereal body souls of Yi Tian Mo, Ka Ba, and Ya Meng and ordering them with a faint smile.
"Master …" Yi Tian Mo transmitted his soul consciousness showing his disagreement.
"It's alright." Shi Yan's face was very calm. He waved his hand implicating that they should not be worried. "I will be careful. There will be no problems. Leave us alone."
The three people of Yi Tian Mo's group hesitated a little bit. As they saw that Shi Yan was very confident, they then slowly left. The three ethereal body souls faded out and finally turned into many light dots disappearing without leaving a trace.
On top of the Snow Dragon Mountain.
The bodies of Yi Tian Mo, Ka Ba, and Ya Meng shook violently. They opened their eyes simultaneously and took a deep breath.
"How was it?" Yu Rou hastily asked.
Di Shan also knitted his eyebrows.
Cao Zhi Lan bit her lips, took one step closer to Yi Tian Mo's group with her beautiful, curious eyes; her elegant ears swayed mischievously. She was obviously very interested in Yi Tian Mo's response.
Yi Tian Mo knitted his eyebrows while glancing at Cao Zhi Lan.
Cao Zhi Lan revealed a smile, took a few steps backward but didn't show any fear. Instead, she burst into laughter and said, "I have figured out your relations earlier. I know, there is some covenant between you and him. Unless this covenant is abolished, you respect him very much, even follow his orders."
Di Shan suddenly squinted, a cold light from deep inside his pupils flared up and disappeared right away.
Cao Zhi Lan's beautiful face changed slightly. She felt freezing inside, her charming body trembled. She hurriedly raised her hand and explained, "I don't have any wicked intentions. I just want to be friendly with him. I am sure he knows about it." Cao Zhi Lan pointed towards Yi Tian Mo.
Yi Tian Mo couldn't forget her bold proposal for Shi Yan. Under the scrutinizing looks of Di Shan and Yu Rou, he nodded with a strange face and said, "This girl has proactively proposed to give herself in a marriage with Shi Yan. Her eyes are very sharp indeed, able to see his limitless potentials."
Yu Rou's beautiful eyes suddenly lightened up. She started to evaluate Cao Zhi Lan seriously for the first time. She looked at Cao Zhi Lan and nodded at the same time then revealed a meaningful smile, "That little girl's appearance is not just ordinary, looks like an interesting girl. Her daring is not small either, not bad. Hmm, but if you want him to be moved and agree, you should put more efforts."
"Please, instruct me." Cao Zhi Lan's face was serious with a sincere manner.
Yu Rou shook her head and said with a faint smile, "I have to see your performance later."
"Just tell us what has happened down there. When he comes up later, if he doesn't want this girl to know, you can always delete her memories." Di Shan seemed to be impatient, coldly said, "For you guys, it is easy to do."
Yi Tian Mo nodded and said without holding anything back anymore, "We united with each other and almost destroyed the Holy Spirit G.o.d. However, that fellow realized that the situation had gone bad and wanted to have its soul exploded to die together with us. At that time, Mas… Shi Yan immediately stopped putting pressure on it. He told us to come up here first and leave him alone to settle things down there."
"He alone can deal with that fellow?" Yu Rou was astonished and a little worried.
Yi Tian Mo shook his head and said, "I don't know. But, there are many strange things on his body. Maybe … there will not be any big problems. Anyway, that Holy Spirit G.o.d had been beaten so much that he was scared out of its wits."
After listening, Di Shan and Yu Rou didn't say anything more although they still felt a little worried.
"Boom boom boom."
Not long after that, an earth-shaking explosive sound came up from underneath the Snow Dragon Mountain once again.
The place where Shi Yan had fallen cracked open one more time, exposing a new connecting path, from which the dense lava ice and the heavy Sky and Earth aura spread out.
Di Shan and the other people all had astonished faces. They attentively looked towards that connecting path which had just cracked open, watching the commotions deep down there while taking precautions in silence.
A big figure slowly leaped up from deep down the connecting path as if it was pushed up by the lava ice under the feet, hence, didn't waste any of its strength to fly straight up.
"He is out." Yi Tian Mo shouted slightly with his suspicious eyes.
With the support of the lava ice, Shi Yan quickly got out of the Icy Crystal Bone Dragon without using any strength. A smile beamed out from the corner of his mouth; his mood seemed quite good.
"How was it?" Ka Ba couldn't help but immediately move closer and ask after waiting for Shi Yan to have gotten out.
"It's done. It has agreed to work for us, help us gather the Sky and Earth aura, rebuild the Snow Dragon Island to become an abundant supplying resource for us."
"Ah, how come it has become that obedient?"
"I have promised to make a suitable body for it. That's it."
