Day by day, the volcano erupted continuously. It lasted for a whole month before it finally subsided, seemingly taking a rest for the eruption fifty years later. It was just like a human taking a nap after throwing a tantrum.
“Boom!” An explosion sounded from the sea bottom. A figure sprang out from the sea bottom. It was the middle-aged man among the two individual cultivators. His position was at the most bottom, where the magma flowed the least. So he absorbed the least energy, thus leaving the close cultivation first.
“Oh my, I’m almost dead!” The middle-aged man exhaled deeply. “This Spiritual Volcano is too dangerous. No wonder there are only these ten slots. Even when I hide in a cave, I’m almost killed by this magma. If there were no caves, there would be many deaths!”
However, he was filled with excitement despite the complaining attitude. In this Spiritual Volcano baptism, he had consolidated his cultivation as the Transcendent Realm First Level warrior, allowing him to ascend into Transcendent Realm First Level Peak. He was only a tad bit distance from entering the Transcendent Realm Second level.
There was another loud explosion. A figure jumped out immediately afterward.
It was the older man among the individual cultivator duo. He came out almost at the same time with the middle-aged man. Although their slots were different, which rendered distinct geographical advantages, the gap was not too big. Since most of the energy had returned to Earth, he couldn’t do anything despite wanting to absorb more energy.
So he came out very decisively. He glanced at the middle-aged man who came out first. He didn’t say anything, but his aura was much more reliable than when he first started. He must have gained a lot of benefits from it.
After these two individual cultivators, another loud “bang” sounded when another day passed. A figure jumped out. It was none other than Wu Chenhai. However, he did not have the slightest joy from ending his cultivation. He pulled a long face as he stared coldly at the top of the volcano that turned chilly. It was Ye Xiwen’s position.
He said coldly, “Ye Xiwen!”
After a whole month, he absorbed a large amount of Spiritual Volcano’s energy and fire-attributed spiritual energy. His cultivation successfully broke through to the Transcendent Realm Second Level as he consolidated his realm. He did not need to worry about his realm being unstable. This trip saved him a lot of time to reach the current progress.
However, he did not rush in blatantly to trouble Ye Xiwen. He knew it clearly that Ye Xiwen was not so easy to deal with. Previously, Ye Xiwen defeated Transcendent Realm Second Level warriors, like Yuan Xuehai and Jia Qing. They were miserably defeated.
Although he hated Ye Xiwen, he was not stupid. He was indeed stronger than Yuan Xuehai and Jia Qing a month ago. However, as he gained a fantastic breakthrough this month, wouldn’t Ye Xiwen be the same?
He was not overconfident. He knew very well that Ye Xiwen would inevitably become stronger. If he were to rely on himself for revenge, it would be impossible in the short run!
Luckily, it did not matter. His family had arranged for someone to deal with Ye Xiwen. Under the pursuit of the sea clan members at Transcendent Realm Third Level, it would be impossible for Ye Xiwen to escape even if he had remarkable skills.
As a matter of fact, humankind was much inferior to many other races, whether physical body, spirit, and perception of the martial art technique. Almost none of them possessed any advantages compared to many other clans.
Humans relied on number games when fighting against other masters of different clans, requiring a group besiege against one opponent. Otherwise, there was no way to attain victory.
Fortunately, although the quality of human masters might not be high, humans were advantageous in numbers. In the end, it gave humankind a chance to survive. However, as compared to a lone wolf, many people would be more optimistic about other clans.
Of course, there were some monstrous geniuses among human beings. They might be able to handle the besiege of dozens of different clans in the same cultivation realm. Sadly, there were too few people like that. Hence, it reinforced Wu Chenhai’s belief that Ye Xiwen was at a dead end.
When the Wang Family learns about the news of Ye Xiwen’s death, it will be a satisfying view. Sadly, I won’t be able to witness Ye Xiwen’s death, let alone behead Ye Xiwen myself.
Although it felt like a great pity for Wu Chenhai, it didn’t matter. As long as Ye Xiwen would be dead, it didn’t matter how it was done. As long as the opponent died, it was good enough.
“Boom!” There was another explosion. A figure broke through the blockage of countless magma and rushed out. It was Jia Qing. At this time, Jia Qing had already ascended to Transcendent Realm Second Level Peak.
Wu Chenhai was quite self-aware, knowing that he would not be able to defeat Ye Xiwen. However, Jia Qing didn’t think so. He knew that Ye Xiwen must have made progress, but he was more convinced that he must be the one who had made the most progress. How could ordinary people be on a par with me – a Sea Dragon Mansion’s disciple?
“Where is Ye Xiwen? Has he come out?” Jia Qing looked at Wu Chenhai and asked.
This Jia Qing’s attitude made Wu Chenhai very uncomfortable. It was like demanding something from another subordinate. However, thinking that he was still a Sea Dragon Mansion’s disciple after all, Wu Chenhai could only hold back his anger and replied plainly, “I did not see him yet. He shouldn’t have come out yet!”
He was quite clear about the Spiritual Volcano. Generally speaking, only those with better positions would come out later because they could absorb more energy. This was a benefit that only champions could enjoy.
“That’s great. I will be on guard here. I will let him suffer once he comes out!” Jia Qing said coldly. The previous battle was a great humiliation for him. The only way to remove this stain in his life was to behead Ye Xiwen.
Wu Chenhai looked at Jia Qing. Although Jia Qing had now entered the Transcendent Realm Second Level Peak, he was still not optimistic that Jia Qing could defeat Ye Xiwen.
All these were just Wu Chenhai’s deep thoughts. He would not let Jia Qing catch wind of it. Moreover, he was upset with Jia Qing too.
Jia Qing was acting arrogant with his identity as Sea Dragon Mansion’s disciple. This fellow thought he was superior as he commanded the Wu Family as though they were subordinates.
What’s so great about you? My grandpa is also a Sea Dragon Mansion’s disciple. I’m going to enter Sea Dragon Mansion soon. What makes you think so highly of yourself!?
Thinking of this, Wu Chenhai was agitated. Even though he was confident that Jia Qing would suffer another terrible loss at Ye Xiwen’s hand, he wouldn’t bother giving Jia Qing a kind reminder. He wanted Jia Qing to suffer terribly.
Anyway, these two are annoying. I should let them fight and suffer great losses.
“Then, you wait here. I’m heading up first!” Wu Chenhai didn’t want to wait with Jia Qing at the same place. He turned into a stream of light and flew toward the sea. There was a ship waiting for his return.
“Useless trash!” Jia Qing didn’t care about Wu Chenhai’s departure. Anyway, he looked down at Wu Chenhai. If not for the benefits and Wu Chenhai’s eldest brother’s status in Sea Dragon Mansion, he would not have come to this rural place and get humiliated. He had never been defeated terribly like this in the past. It made him angry; he looked in the direction of Ye Xiwen with blatant killing intent.
All of a sudden, two massive explosions occurred almost immediately next to each other. It was the two caves that the Yuan Family occupied.
Yuan Xuehai and another Yuan Family’s warrior jumped out directly. Yuan Xuehai only glanced at the Jia Qing a short while before returning his gaze at Ye Xiwen’s position. He immediately understood Jia Qing’s thoughts, but he didn’t say anything and just sneered.
Then, he turned around and flew directly towards the sea with the other Yuan Family’s warrior.
There was another explosion. A figure flew up from the magma stone piles. The young expert who belonged to the Wang family had already consolidated Transcendent Realm First Level Peak cultivation.
After another long while, there was another massive explosion in a cave. Wang Feiyun rushed out directly with a loud cheer filled with excitement. He finally stepped into the Transcendent Realm Second Level. Even though he had only recently attained the realm, it was consolidated daily. Thus, he was not the most inferior in the realm.
Wang Feiyun soon noticed Jia Qing. Seeing that Jia Qing had been staring at the cave where Ye Xiwen was located, he knew what Jia Qing wanted to do, but he didn’t say anything. Although Ye Xiwen helped the Wang Family to become the champion, he was still occupied with the grudge of Ye Xiwen defeating him in one move. He would not harm Ye Xiwen, but he only treated Ye Xiwen like a stranger.
Jia Qing didn’t care about the two people who came out. He only had Ye Xiwen in his eyes, and he wished to smash Ye Xiwen into pieces.
After another three days, there was another explosion. A huge momentum swept in all directions. A petite figure rushed out. It was none other than Wang Mengyu.
“Where is Ye Xiwen? Haven’t he come out yet?” Wang Mengyu asked Wang Feiyun as soon as she came out.
“Not out yet!” said Wang Feiyun.
“He’s not going to die inside, right!?” The Wang family expert said with some worries. This was not a joke; instead, it had happened many times in the past. The young expert was trapped inside the magma. He was trapped alive inside and died.
“It should be okay. Ye Xiwen is not a person who doesn’t know his limits. If he couldn’t stand it, he would have left long ago. He would not even agree to this invitation!” Wang Mengyu shook her head. Based on her knowledge of Ye Xiwen, she thought the possibility would be relatively low.
“However, with his Half-step Transcendent Realm strength, it is not easy to be able to survive until now!” said Wang Feiyun. Although Ye Xiwen had outstanding combat prowess, his power realm was still at Half-step Transcendent Realm, after all. Absorbing a high magnitude of energy would be challenging.
“Let’s keep waiting!” said Wang Mengyu plainly.
Time passed day by day. A month had passed, and everyone became a little impatient.
Eventually, there was some movement in Ye Xiwen’s cave.
“Boom!” With a loud noise, the solidified magma instantly cracked. A horrible vigor swept in all directions.
“Half-step Transcendent Realm Late!” said Wang Mengyu. She was certain of Ye Xiwen’s power realm. However, it was terrifying that Ye Xiwen was the only one having such a strong vigor during Half-step Transcendent Realm Late.
