"You came in as well?" asked Zi Jing Xiao, intrigued. He was surprised and didn't understand why Lin Feng had done so.
"I came in on purpose. I was alone outside, what could I do by myself?" Lin Feng frowned. Alone he would have been in danger!
Zi Jing Xiao nodded gravely. They were there to save Qing Xin Yue, so they needed to be together.
"What do we do now?" asked Chu Chun Qiu grimly. He didn't feel like standing in the darkness the whole time. He just wanted to save Qing Xin Yue and leave.
Zi Jing Xiao and Lin Feng glanced at each other cautiously. Zi Jing Xiao said, "I want to find Zhao Ming Jun. With him, our chances to get out will be higher."
"Alright, go and find Zhao Ming Jun. I'm going to go and look for Qing Ling Xuan and the others," Lin Feng nodded.
They separated again. Chu Chun Qiu remained there, standing motionless. He stayed there so the two others could find their way back easily. No matter where they went, they'd find him again thanks to his Qi.
Zi Jing Xiao was much faster than Lin Feng, because he had Kun and You with him. In the blink of an eye, he was already a few hundred li away. Lin Feng flew in midair in the opposite direction and did all he could to find Qing Ling Xuan and Hun Cang.
Chu Chun Qiu was nervous and he didn't like staying there doing nothing, but it was better for the group. They needed to find everybody to be stronger and save Qing Xin Yue.
"Can I really stay here and do nothing?" whispered Chu Chun Qiu to himself.
"Hehe, you can do lots of things!" Chu Chun Qiu heard in his head. His expression stiffened. That was a very familiar voice. Chu Chun Qiu was suddenly panic-stricken. He looked at the sky of the Ju Space, but didn't see anything.
"We agreed back then. When you left my body, you agreed you would never make things difficult for me. Have you forgotten about that?" Chu Chun Qiu shouted defiantly.
However, the voice just laughed icily and said mockingly, "Chu Chun Qiu, I will not hurt you, we have an agreement.
"You remember that battle when I nearly killed Lin Feng? Hehe. Unfortunately, I was just a spiritual being back then, so I couldn't kill him and I had to escape.
"But I was severely injured and you were waiting for the opportune moment to go into action and break free from me, but you gradually lost your soul. I know everything.
"But I hate Yi Ren Lei even more. She managed to imprison a part of my soul in her body and because of that, I haven't been able to recover completely.
"I have no choice but to use this method to talk to you. Hehe, don't worry, Chu Chun Qiu; after I get rid of Lin Feng, we'll continue with our plan. Haha!" said the Ancient Demon King, laughing with cold confidence. He had been waiting for hundreds of years to get his revenge, after all!
"Demon King, are you the mysterious cultivator who kidnapped Qing Xin Yue?" Chu Chun Qiu asked.
The Ancient Demon King burst into laughter. In the end, Chu Chun Qiu was relieved.
"No, I'm not. You think I am extremely strong, but..." The Ancient Demon King stopped talking on purpose to create suspense. Chu Chun Qiu was even more nervous.
"But what?" demanded Chu Chun Qiu.
"Even though that person is not me, there is a strong connection between him and me. Wait and you'll see. Hehe!" said the Ancient Demon King. His Qi disappeared from the Ju Space. Chu Chun Qiu tried to sense some Qi, but there was no Qi left, which meant the Ancient Demon King had really left. Chu Chun Qiu was extremely worried though... the Ancient Demon King was back!
Even though a part of his soul was stuck in Yi Ren Lei's body, the remaining part of his soul was still terrifying. Chu Chun Qiu hated himself for letting him go. He should have killed him back then when he had let him out of his body.
The Ancient Demon King wasn't trustworthy, so Chu Chun Qiu couldn't be sure of what was going to happen. He might not keep his word. After killing Lin Feng, he may as well get rid of Chu Chun Qiu too!
He had lost a part of his soul hundreds of years before and he didn't know where it was. If he found it, he would become much, much stronger, but more importantly, he would get rid of the Ancient Demon King!
It's time to talk to Lin Feng, thought Chu Chun Qiu.
Lin Feng was already thousands of li away. He could sense the poison Qi under his feet was growing more potent. Some poison worms were already attacking him, but Lin Feng didn't need to fear them thanks to his Jia Yan's Eyes Tao Skill.
He was also safe thanks to his Genesis Spiritual body. It was a great protection. He just felt disgusted by the worms.
He continued flying, but he couldn't see Qing Ling Xuan and the others? Where were they?!
"Force Stealing Stars!"
Lin Feng heard an explosive cry behind him, but hadn't felt anyone's presence. However, a terrifying strength was attacking him by surprise. Lin Feng was angry.
Bad luck though, he couldn't dodge!
Boom, boom, boom!...
There was an explosive collision!
Zi Jing Xiao, who was in the other direction, also heard it. He turned around and looked grim, seeing that it came from Lin Feng's direction.
Is Lin Feng safe?, thought Zi Jing Xiao glumly. If something happened to Lin Feng, then the whole mission would be much, much more difficult.
Let's wait and see, Zi Jing Xiao thought. Then he turned around, and Kun and You continued flying.
After a short time, they saw a group of people: Zhao Ming Jun, Hun Cang, and Qing Ling Xuan. Only Jia Li Ya was missing.
"Zi Jing Xiao?" Zhao Ming Jun looked grim, but when he saw Zi Jing Xiao, he was relieved.
Zi Jing Xiao flew towards them and glanced at everybody.
"You were already together?" asked Zi Jing Xiao. He was even more worried for Lin Feng.
"Yes. Apart from Jia Li Ya and Chu Chun Qiu, we were all together. Why?" asked Zhao Ming Jun.
"Nothing. Let's go return to Chu Chun Qiu and then we'll see what we can do," replied Zi Jing Xiao with a wave. Zhao Ming Jun nodded. They just needed to be together to be stronger.
Everybody followed after Zi Jing Xiao.
An hour later, they were with Chu Chun Qiu again. Chu Chun Qiu looked at them. Only Lin Feng hadn't come back.
"What about Lin Feng?" asked Chu Chun Qiu. Zi Jing Xiao shook his head.
"Chu Chun Qiu, where is Jia Li Ya?" asked Zhao Ming Jun. At the beginning, Chu Chun Qiu and Jia Li Ya were together.
Chu Chun Qiu shook his head. He didn't know where she had gone, either. They were together at the beginning, but then Jia Li Ya had decided to go and look for the others.
"Where did Jia Li Ya go?" asked Zhao Ming Jun. He was worried. As the group leader, he was in charge of everybody.
"Leader, I'm here," said a voice suddenly. Jia Li Ya quickly flew over. She was pale and there was blood on the corner of her mouth. Her Qi was unstable too.
"What happened?" asked Zi Jing Xiao, when he saw she was severely injured.
Jia Li Ya took a deep breath and sat down. Some poison worms appeared and climbed up on her body, but Jia Li Ya shook herself and the worms turned to ashes. After that, the poison worms didn't dare attack her again.
"Someone attacked me by surprise!" said Jia Li Ya. She was traumatized. If she hadn't used all her strength to escape, she could have died.
"Attacked by surprise? What happened? Speak!" ordered Zhao Ming Jun grimly. Everybody's expressions fell.
