Wang Yanghua had already said so. It did not matter whether the Wu Family members were happy with it or not. There was a tacit understanding among the three families. If the Wu Family had the guts to violate it, the Wang Family would do so next time.
South Initiate Island was generally peaceful. It lay in the compromise and balance between the three families.
No one took further pauses. Everyone boarded the ship prepared long ago and headed towards the sea region where Spiritual Volcano was located.
As a matter of fact, it should be considered a ship-shaped martial instrument. It turned out to be a great sage tool. Of course, they did not have the luxury of using the Transcendent Tool as martial instruments for travel.
Even in the Ancient Barrens continent, the Transcendent Tool was not common, especially for the three prominent clans. Their influence was limited to South Initiate Island and nearby sea regions.
There were layers of space warp on the ship. It might not appear big, but it could accommodate many people.
After cruising for another half an hour, the ship finally stopped. The three families started to get organized and shared important points to take note of. For the two individual cultivators who seemed to be experienced, there was no need for further notes.
“Remember. After you go in, don’t move around and wait quietly for the Spiritual Volcano to erupt. At that time, you must activate your aura barrier immediately, or you will be burned to death by the lava,” urged Wang Yanghua.
In fact, Wang Mengyu and Wang Feiyun were not newbies. Those who needed the reminder would be Ye Xiwen and the Wang Family’s young talent, who would be accepting the Spiritual Volcano baptism for the first time.
“En!” Ye Xiwen nodded. During the cruise, he didn’t do anything. He only asked around the baptism details.
Soon, everyone plunged into the sea. At this time, this sea region appeared relatively peaceful. No beast was seen. All the beasts could feel that this volcano was about to erupt, and the surrounding area would be dangerous.
Since these beasts had left in advance, this sea region also appeared to be extremely quiet. Ye Xiwen and others also arrived at the sea bottom.
However, a vast continuous mountain range appeared in front of everyone. At the top of this submerged mountain range, there was a huge opening. It was this active volcano that would erupt once every fifty years.
There was a fire-attributed spiritual vein near this active volcano. It seemed to be a symbiotic spiritual vein of this active volcano. It was an excellent grade, but none of the three prominent families dared to make a move on this spiritual vein. If one were to be careless and caused this active volcano to erupt in advance, everyone would suffer a terrible fate.
So, they would instead send people here for baptism every fifty years.
Ye Xiwen activated his spiritual senses. He could immediately feel a majestic energy brewing in this active volcano as if it might erupt at any time.
Ye Xiwen became serious. In fact, their distance was not far away from the eruption range. Ye Xiwen dared not to belitter the power of nature. If a Transcendent Realm master were directly bombarded by the magma spewed out, it would be a fatal burn injury.
Everyone did not hesitate and went to their respective positions in descending order, with Ye Xiwen taking the best spot.
Ye Xiwen found the cave that belonged to him. He drilled in and immediately laid out the array. Then, he sat down cross-legged, quietly waiting for the Spiritual Volcano to erupt.
Suddenly, Ye Xiwen felt an earthquake as if some giant creature was turning over. The ground was shaking, and his surrounding rocks were utterly shattered.
The surrounding seawater had seemingly reached the boiling point in an instant.
Ye Xiwen quickly sensed the absurd escalation of the surrounding temperature. Although he was not directly facing the volcanic crater, he could still feel the temperature change.
He hurriedly activated the aura barrier to isolate the heat. This temperature was nothing to his physical body. However, he was afraid that the Spiritual Volcano would suddenly erupt, burying himself alive on the spot.
The mountain range became unstable. Ye Xiwen only felt that the surrounding area was getting hotter and hotter, but immediately, hot spiritual energy engulfed him. This spiritual energy was so rich and pure that it was incredible. The fire-attributed energy was simply out of place with the surrounding seawater. As the energy entered the cave Ye Xiwen was located, all the seawater surrounding him evaporated instantly.
After a while, in the cave where Ye Xiwen was, only this scorching spiritual energy was left.
“Ye Xiwen, this is the fire-attributed spiritual energy. Haha, it’s the purest energy!” Ye Mo cheered, “The earthquake must have shattered the fiery spiritual stones. Only then, spiritual energy, which is under such pressure in the seabed for hundreds of thousands of years, is released.”
Although these scorching spiritual energies were uncomfortable, they were so rich that it almost condensed into liquid. One could imagine how high the concentration was.
Ye Xiwen deactivated the aura barrier on his arm. He suddenly felt a “sizzling” sound on his arm as if the flesh was burnt. These fire-attributed spiritual energies were quite a challenge.
As a matter of fact, most of the spiritual energy in the world had no attributes. Only a handful of them had attributes. Unfortunately, these spiritual energies were more challenging to control, especially fire-attributed spiritual energy. They were quite rampant. Many people who acquired fire spiritual stones wouldn’t know how to control the stones. They could only resort to selling the stones to those who practice fire martial arts.
But, Ye Xiwen was naturally different. Although he did not practice martial arts with fire attributes, the power of his Tyrant Body was too overbearing. Almost all the body tempering forces would be assimilated, so he was not afraid at all.
Ye Xiwen didn’t hesitate immediately. He directly began to absorb these spiritual energies. Immediately, he felt burning pain in the meridian, but fortunately, he could withstand it.
With a single inhale, he swallowed all the fire-attributed spiritual energy in the entire cave. It was a great momentum capable of swallowing mountains and rivers.
He didn’t feel that there was anything wrong with him, but people catching wind of this would be terrified. Besides Ye Xiwen, no one would dare to absorb the fire-attributed spiritual energy so fiercely. It would still make sense if Ye Xiwen had somehow cultivated martial arts in fire attributes.
However, since he did not, it was supposedly a careful assimilation process. This fire-attributed spiritual energy was rampant. It was highly possible to burn one’s Dantian after depositing it in the body.
Others could only absorb it bit by bit carefully. However, Ye Xiwen couldn’t care less. His Tyrant Body had reached the eighth level. His inner meridian was cultivated and strengthened. It would withstand fire-attributed spiritual energy.
Moreover, the assimilation speed of Tyrant Body Scripture and Observing Person Scripture was swift. The fire-attributed spiritual energy would become ready to be assimilated very soon.
Ye Xiwen suddenly felt that he had become stronger again. The Star Beast’s bloodline power in his body had also absorbed many nutrients.
As Ye Xiwen assimilation went faster and faster, the influx of fire-attributed spiritual energy also escalated. Fortunately, the entire sea region was filled with fire-attributed spiritual energy while the others refined it slowly, unable to keep up with Ye Xiwen. Otherwise, the others might resort to fighting against Ye Xiwen. After all, they wouldn’t be able to cultivate further with Ye Xiwen’s domineering cultivation process.
Not long after, Ye Xiwen only felt that the whole world seemed to be shaking. The seawater beside him oscillated in great intensity. The fiery magma shot to the sky like a burning sea in the sky.
At first, the magma was tender like a beautiful woman scattering flowers, but soon it all fell like a shower.
Soon, Ye Xiwen didn’t have any mental effort to care about it anymore. The cave was quickly flooded with magma. The countless magma slid down from the submerged volcano as if it were rolling down. Of course, the closer one was to the top of the mountain, the more intense the magma would be. There was not much left when it came to the last two slots at the mountain foot.
Of course, although it was not a lot, it was actually enough to fill the entire cave.
Ye Xiwen could sense that magma had enveloped him at the moment it had rushed in. The aura barrier on him made a “sizzling” sound, seemingly going to tear at any second.
This magma was rich in fire-attributed spiritual energy. If one could not assimilate the spiritual energy, it would be buried alive. After hundreds of millions of years, it would develop into another spiritual vein.
Ye Xiwen went Tall out. He directly removed all the aura barriers on his body. Instantly, he could feel the skin on his whole body burning. He was submerged in the magma.
At the same time, Tyrant Body Scripture and Observing Person Scripture were activated. Both techniques enabled the fanatical assimilation of the explosive energy contained in the magma.
This magma’s energy was so rampant that it surged into Ye Xiwen’s body with no hurdle. Ordinary warriors would not absorb energy like how Ye Xiwen would. They would only use aura barrier to block off most of the energy and then absorb it bit by bit.
Otherwise, the energy in that magma could directly burst their bodies.
But Ye Xiwen was unique. After cultivating the Tyrant Body Technique and absorbing the Star Beast’s flesh, his physical body was no longer comparable to ordinary people. There posed no problem in such a violent assimilation process.
Time waits for no one. The volcanic energy and the fire-attributed spiritual energy in this magma would return to the earth over time. Hence, Ye Xiwen must make use of the time he had to cultivate.
