Yi Yun's expression changed drastically when he sensed that Ling Xie'er's spiritual energy was already extremely weak.
The Heretical God Fire Seed was in front of Yi Yun. Although it was trapped in the massive array, the fire wisp was constantly flickering, to the point that it looked like it could be snuffed out at any time. However, it was also impossible for it to be extinguished.
As for Ling Xie'er, she had said that she could not take it any further. That meant that the Heretical God Fire Seed's true core was fine, but the girl's spiritual body was about to be obliterated.
Ling Xie'er was naive and innocent. Her personality was no different from a true girl. If her spiritual body were to die, then Ling Xie'er would truly be dead. Only the Heretical God Fire Seed would remain.
"Xie'er, where are you?" Yi Yun asked hurriedly.
Ling Xie'er's frail voice responded intermittently after a long period of time. "Brother Yi Yun, it's best you leave quickly. These people want to harm you…"
Yi Yun's heart leaped. It was the people from the Seven Star Dao Palace!? Had they captured Ling Xie'er?
The Heretical God Fire Seed's true power lie inside the gray flame. But Ling Xie'er, who was just a sentient projection, lacked combat strength.
"Xie'er, tell me. Where are you? What did they do to you?" The look in Yi Yun's eyes had completely chilled.
However, Ling Xie'er did not answer Yi Yun's question. She said intermittently, "Brother Yi Yun, I was too dumb…I was planning on trapping them…but never expected them to end up trapping me instead."
"Brother Yi Yun, ever since I became sentient, I have been in this massive array for hundreds of millions of years. Only when you came was I able to speak a few words with you. If I count carefully, I have only spoken a few dozen sentences in my entire existence. My life has been long, but it has also been very short…"
"I might be dying. Brother Yi Yun, the name you gave me is something I like a lot…"
Ling Xie'er's voice gradually weakened. Her final long statement felt like it was the last spurt of activity before death.
Such words stabbed at Yi Yun's heart.
He had been so immersed in his cogitation that he was unaware of what happened around him. He never expected that so much would occur during this period of time. Ling Xie'er had definitely left the massive array in order to protect him. She had risked herself to trap the people from the Seven Star Dao Palace but ended up being captured.
She was a young girl that lacked experience, so how could she ever match the Seven Star Dao Palace?
"Liu Ruyi, you sure are perverse!"
Yi Yun gritted his teeth as he exclaimed, "Xie'er! Xie'er!"
However…even when Yi Yun sent his perception deep into the gray flame, Ling Xie'er's voice no longer sounded.
The gray flame seemed to emanate a bout of sadness at that instant.
Immediately, Yi Yun felt like his heart was being grabbed by a hand that squeezed it ruthlessly!
Yi Yun's fists clenched so hard that his fingernails lodged deep into his flesh. The scene of him conversing with Ling Xie'er seemed to suffuse before his eyes.
"Do you have a name? Then I'll give you a name…why don't you go by Ling Xie'er in the future?"
Human warriors would casually kill for their own interests. They would scheme in mystic realms and murder others to seize their belongings. In order to achieve their goals, they would slaughter countless beings. As for Ling Xie'er, he had barely interacted with her, but she had protected him in such a manner.
The Heretical God Fire Seed ended up possessing the kindest and purest personality in the world.
"Ling Xie'er…" Yi Yun looked up as his face suffused a terrifying killing intent!
"Seven Star Dao Palace! I'll definitely charge your gates one day and wipe you all out!"
Yi Yun looked at the Heretical God Fire Seed. He had only planned on cracking the array appropriately and leaving with Ling Xie'er but now…
"Xie'er, can you hear me? I planned on bringing you along with me after cracking the array but your spiritual body is trapped. I need your power to kill the ones trapping you." As Yi Yun spoke, his figure flashed as he flew towards the samsara wheel.
With the worldly array there, no one could approach the samsara wheel other than Ling Xie'er. But now, Yi Yun's feet burned with roaring flames as the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence in his hand flew into the array.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence and the six-divisioned wheel of samsara collided, sending out powerful shock waves, as though the world was being ruptured. The entire underground world began to tremble.
Yi Yun stood in this shock wave, entering the core of the impact. After entering the massive array, he stretched out to hold up a gray flame.
This was the God Fire that was born from the Sinkhole. Years ago, the divine alchemist had merged his Empyrean Cleansing Flame with the Heretical God Fire Seed until eventually, the Empyrean Cleansing Flame was devoured by the Heretical God Fire Seed, turning the Heretical God Fire Seed into the strongest flame in the world.
Such a powerful flame was not something even a Supremacy could do anything about. Even a Divine Lord would have to be extremely careful and would show no confidence in refining it, much less one at Yi Yun's mere Dao Manifestation realm.
But now, Yi Yun held it in his palm.
It was surprising that a flame that could emblaze the Universe did not cause any harm to Yi Yun's hands.
More surprisingly, the Heretical God Fire Seed turned quiet in Yi Yun's palms. It was like a pixie jumping in the night, sending a sense of warmth into Yi Yun's body.
"The divine alchemist used this worldly array to refine the Elixir of Resurrection. Today, I'll use my body as a cauldron to be the vessel of the Heretical God Fire Seed!"
As though it had intelligence, the Heretical God Fire Seed entered Yi Yun's body.
At the same time, the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence and the samsara wheel fused completely. The blood-red samsara wheel spun at Yi Yun's feet as his aura constantly increased. In the deep depths of his eyes that resembled the night, two flames ignited.
The flames were not red in color but gray. They constantly jumped, giving Yi Yun the appearance of a demon god that walked out of hell.
Power, I need power!
Yi Yun was acutely aware that he could not defeat the deputy palatial lords of the Seven Star Dao Palace. He needed his strength to grow to the limit.
The Heretical God Fire Seed flew into Yi Yun's dantian, fusing with the Azure Wood Divine Tree. At that moment, the tree seemed to give birth to a sun in his body. All its branches turned fiery red. It began to grow swiftly, its trunk rapidly thickening. New branches grew as new leaves sprouted along the branches and constantly extended forward!
These leaves were in various shapes and sizes. No two leaves were the same. They were like tiny cauldrons, flying swords, or eight trigrams…Each leaf vein was engraved with the truth behind the Great Dao.
In that moment, Yi Yun deeply felt that the Heretical God Fire Seed had completely fused with him. It had infused all its power into his dantian!
This was the worldly power from the Sun Burial Sandsea that had been gathered for hundreds of millions of years.
With so much concentrated power, Yi Yun directly broke through to the late stages of the Dao Manifestation realm!
However, this was far from the limit of this immense power!
