A day later, the Westernmost Land...
Xu Ruchen stopped in his track. The Saint of the Xu Clan said with an intimidated look, "This is as far as I can go."
An eerie sight took place in front of them.
The ground and the sky seemed to have turned upside down. The sky was pitch-black with ravines and peaks pointing downward. They could also see enormous rotten corpses.
The ground was a spacious ice valley. Under the thick layer of ice were nine huge blood-red moons with a strange glow. The whole valley was dyed red by their light.
"Mm, you may go back now. Wait at the Westernmost Land for my return. If I don't come back, two women called Princess Miao Miao and Jiang Bilan would come to the Westernmost Land. You must intercept them at all costs," Qin Nan said before going forward.
A huge hand suddenly grabbed his shoulder. Xu Ruchen said, "Qin Nan, a step into it and there's no turning back."
Qin Nan smiled. He took another step forward.
A rare phenomenon took place following the step.
Qin Nan felt like he had just stepped on a peerless beast. He was dragged into a mystical realm.
The surroundings did not change by much, but when Qin Nan turned around, he noticed the path he took was replaced by a boundless ice valley. Xu Ruchen was nowhere to be seen too.
"There's is indeed no turning back," Qin Nan murmured.
He activated the twelve Arts of Dao Seeking in his body and prepared for danger.
The Nine Dragons Seal had displayed its outstanding capabilities twice to save him a lot of trouble and bring him benefits. However, he had no idea if the Nine Dragons Seal was as useful in the inner sector of the Westernmost Land. He must be extremely cautious.
Time gradually passed. Three days were gone fairly quickly.
Qin Nan did not discover anything unusual, nor did he find any benefits. He could only see an endless valley of ice before him.
He began to doubt if he had fallen into some kind of terrifying illusion which kept him on the same spot. He tried observing his surroundings with the Illusionary Dao Immortal Manuscript and other methods for a long time before giving up the thought.
Qin Nan suddenly saw several glaciers over a few hundred thousand zhang tall in the distance. They stood a certain distance opposite one another, leaving a path between them leading to nowhere.
Qin Nan picked up his pace and flew toward the path without any hesitation.
For some reason, he felt a sense of danger when he approached the path. His body tensed when it kept growing stronger. He subconsciously slowed down.
"I have no idea how long it will take for me to find any clues in the ice valley. I should keep going!"
Qin Nan forced his way through the path with a determined look.
His eyes widened in less than ten breaths.
He saw eyes appearing along the walls on both sides.
The eyes were incredibly huge. Each one spanned across a glacier. The veins in their eyes were like dragons. Their red pupils were like a boundless red sea.
Most importantly, there were countless of the same eyes with different colors. Some were purple, golden, and black.
Qin Nan's scalp turned numb as his hair stood on its end. It took him some time just to collect his thoughts. His face turned slightly pale.
"Such an enormous pressure!" Qin Nan murmured.
He wiped the sweat on his forehead and clenched his teeth as he tried walking forward.
He only walked around a distance of a hundred zhang after a thousand breaths. Each step was incredibly heavy like he was carrying mountains on his back.
However, he soon let out a relieved sigh.
The path was extremely weird, but there was not really any danger.
Little did Qin Nan know, several ancient existences were communicating with their thoughts.
"I just picked up its aura, even though it's extremely weak."
"I did too. It seems like it hasn't truly woken up."
"I also sensed the auras of Zhou Di and Huangfu Jue."
"Those two are no ordinary cultivators. Why would their auras exist on the same person?"
"I have no clue, but we should let him pass..."
A few hours later, the pressure Qin Nan was under had lowered significantly. He was already getting used to the terrifying eyes.
"Mm? Is this...the aura of a peak Nine Heavens Supreme?" Qin Nan was startled.
Was there someone else here?
"Who are you? How did you come here?"
A calm voice came from ahead. The person ahead was a woman.
Qin Nan collected his thoughts and said, "And who are you? How did you get here?"
The voice did not respond. Qin Nan picked up his pace. A few moments later, the voice appeared again, "I won't go easy on you if you don't answer my question."
A shocking glow surged like a raging dragon following the sentence. It stirred strong gusts of wind toward Qin Nan.
Qin Nan raised his brows. He activated the twelve Arts of Dao Seeking. A golden Bodhi rune appeared on his hand as he shoved his palm forward.
"The Ancient Bodhi Temple?"
The voice sounded a little surprised.
Qin Nan smiled. He performed a hand seal to summon the Wheel of Reincarnation behind him. Following it, the force of Sky Taihuang, a saber consisting of the Ten Desires, and the power of the Sanqing Sect appeared too. It was the Combination of Five Arts!
"I didn't expect you to have learned so many Arts of Dao Seeking," the pleasant-sounding voice said with a hint of admiration. "I long had the same thought, but my Dao Glow can't sustain them. I shall see how strong it is today."
A glamorous figure suddenly appeared in front of Qin Nan. She threw the fan in her hand which transformed into an illusionary giant beast roaring at Qin Nan.
Qin Nan unleashed five arts simultaneously which overwhelmed the illusionary beast. Their remaining force lunged at the glamorous figure.
An unexpected change took place.
