A World Worth Protecting Chapter 534
This unusual scene only lasted for a few seconds before disappearing. Zhuo Yifan's aura slowly stabilized as he began the process of consolidation. There also seemed to be a butterfly effect in terms of achieving breakthroughs, as soon, an aura and suppressive force that was stronger than that of Zhuo Yifan's was given off Zhao Yameng's body.
As the suppressive force spread, a crackling voice was produced from Zhao Yameng's body. If one could pass through and see her dantian, they could clearly notice that an Array Rune core made up of countless Array Runes accumulated together was fast forming!
As it formed, the moving waves produced as a result of Zhao Yameng's cultivation grew stronger. Finally, she opened her eyes, having achieved a breakthrough from the Foundation Establishment realm into the Core Formation realm. At the same time, an illusion also formed behind her!
It was an illusion of the cosmos, and a large ancient tree was in it. The tree was made up completely of Array Runes, and it was the Ecang Ancient Array Formation inheritance that Zhao Yameng had obtained!
On the other hand, Wang Baole's internal cultivation seemed to have broken free from its cuffs due to the auras all around him. Instantly, he broke through from early-stage Core Formation realm and entered the mid-stage Core Formation realm. His mid-stage Core Formation realm was also unusual, as he broke through more than once!
The first to achieve a breakthrough was his Lightning Core. After the Lightning Core had broken through, the first level of Wang Baole's Lightning Immortal Transformation was perfected. He only needed to go into seclusion for a period of time to consolidate it to reach the second level of the Lightning Immortal Transformation, so as to create a Lightning Immortal avatar!
The next to achieve a breakthrough was his Dark Core. To Wang Baole, the Dark Art was well prepared. Be it the inheritance enlightenment in his Dark Dream, or his control of the Dark Qi absorption and that of Soul Guidance, they both allowed Wang Baole's Dark Core and Lightning Core to achieve a breakthrough at the same time and enter the mid-stage Core Formation realm!
The last to achieve a breakthrough was his physical body. In reality, that was the fundamental reason why he swallowed the pills. Not only would the pills boost part of his cultivation, but they would stimulate his physical body. Of course, these weren't the main reason. The key that really allowed Wang Baole's physical body to achieve a breakthrough was Thearch Armor's inheritance!
Even though Wang Baole hadn't cultivated this inheritance, simply imprinting it in his mind already had an impact on his physical body, causing it to constantly change by adapting to Thearch Armor's cultivation.
Therefore, while the breakthrough this time appeared to only advance from early-stage to mid-stage Core Formation realm, his combat capabilities had significantly improved. As he opened his eyes, an aura that made even Zhuo Yifan and Zhao Yameng astonished emanated from Wang Baole's body.
So powerful! Zhuo Yifan was surprised, and immediately stood up and retreated several steps. Under the lure of Wang Baole's aura, his glabella glowed red, and the mark of the War Soldier vaguely transmogrified, as if the mark was offering protection instinctively.
Zhao Yameng didn't retreat like Zhuo Yifan, but she also revealed a look of surprise. As she sealed her hands and waved them, an array formation protective covering instantly appeared to stop the spread of the aura. She knew that Wang Baole was powerful, but right now, as Wang Baole achieved a breakthrough, she suddenly realized that Wang Baole was more shockingly powerful than she had thought.
It must be mentioned that she had also achieved a breakthrough herself. She was sensing everything through the combat capabilities of an early-stage Core Formation realm cultivator instead of a Foundation Establishment realm cultivator. That was sufficient to prove that even though Wang Baole's current breakthrough seemed uneventfully smooth, it was actually an extraordinary process!
That was especially so as right now, green veins were bulging from Wang Baole's physical body, and both Zhuo Yifan and Zhao Yameng felt that his Blood Qi was raging. It seemed as if just his physical body alone was sufficient to suppress everything. There was also a black flame burning in his left eye, giving off a chill. In his right eye, lightning that could destroy everything was spreading as well. These, combined with his physical body, boosted Wang Baole's combat capabilities significantly!
As Wang Baole slowly stood up, the aura from his body continued to grow stronger, as if there were no limits. Even Zhao Yameng had no choice but to start retreating, as the array formation protective covering around her began to break apart.
Even the donkey was completely shocked, giving up on its initial thought to change his daddy. After thinking it through, it felt that even if it were to be transformed into a snake, it would still lose against its daddy.
Therefore, it sighed and resigned to fate. It put on a look to please, and even shook its tail enthusiastically, delightfully galloping around with its hooves.
That's just too powerful! Zhao Yameng was shaken as she held her breath and looked at Zhuo Yifan, before realizing that he was also looking at her. Astonishment could be seen in each of their eyes.
At that moment, Wang Baole stood up and slowly closed his eyes again. He gradually toned down on his aura. Several moments later, after his aura was completely dissipated, he reopened his eyes again. There was no longer any lightning or Dark Fire. However, after noticing Zhuo Yifan and Zhao Yameng's facial expressions, Wang Baole hurriedly blinked. Maintaining his previous demeanor, he raised his chin and perked up his tummy, speaking nonchalantly.
"Zhao Yameng, tell me the truth. Are you secretly in love with me?"
As Wang Baole spoke, Zhuo Yifan, who despite still maintaining a mighty posture, slapped his forehead as he wondered about why the fella before him had a habit of taking liberties of others regardless of the situation
As for Zhao Yameng, she was indeed taken aback by Wang Baole's aura previously, but when she heard those words, a look of unfriendliness could instantly be seen in her eyes.
Wang Baole chuckled looking at the duo's facial expressions, before hurriedly dissipating his aura. As he patted his tummy, he spoke arrogantly.
"How's that? Now the both of you know how formidable the Chairman of the Adonis Association is, huh?"
Zhao Yameng snorted, while Zhuo Yifan shook his head while laughing bitterly. However, he still felt that the Wang Baole who behaved in that manner was the Wang Baole that they were familiar with. The sense of unfamiliarity that previously arose due to Wang Baole's astonishing aura dissipated with Wang Baole's cheekiness. Soon, after some discussion, the trio made preparations to leave.
"Even though all of us have achieved a breakthrough, the journey back is still dangerous. We should remain vigilant." After Wang Baole made those last-minute reminders, the trio took a deep breath and unleashed their full speed. The donkey was thrown back into the storage bag by Wang Baole.
The area they were in was the periphery. Therefore, as the trio charged forward, they soon reached the dividing line between the land of inheritance and the Sea of Fire. They didn't stop and directly crossed over the line. The moment they did that, a heatwave greeted them, instantly dehydrating them and making them feel the obvious difference between the land of inheritance and the world outside.
Even the skies were different. The skies over the land of inheritance were pitch-black, with only three cracks revealing a red glow. Every once in a while, the dark screen would spread, plunging the area into darkness instantly. However, the skies here were a deep red color, and looking at it through the lens of Wang Baole's current level of cultivation, he could vaguely see that there was an unimaginable fire burning behind this deep red-colored sky. It was like a liquid and a gas at the same time, and couldn't be easily described.
Seems like we have been teleported to the depths of the sword body Wang Baole was extremely vigilant as he observed the surroundings. At the same time, he was calling out for Little Missy in his mind. He needed to know which direction to head in before returning to the sword handle region from the sword body region.
As Wang Baole called for Little Missy, the trio seemed to have sensed something and turned their heads around one after another. They noticed that the dark screen had appeared once again over the land of inheritance that they had just left. Looking at it from the outside, they could gain a clear view. They realized that the skies weren't covered by a growing dark screen. Instead, a dark screen had risen up from the ground along the border before turning crescent-shaped and covering the entire land of inheritance whole. Overall, it seemed like a large semicircle that was gradually forming!
That shocked the trio and injected them with a sense of familiarity. Zhao Yameng was the first to react to this, and she hurriedly spoke.
"Don't you guys think that this land of inheritance looks like an eye?
"The black-colored area in the middle of the land is the pupil, while the white-colored area of the ground is the sclera. The dark screen occasionally appears, and it is likely the eyelids opening and closing when the eye blinks!"
