Li Qiye crossed through space and time to a different domain within the skull . This process required massive strength and precise calculations because just one mistake would result in a spatial collapse devouring him in the process .
This lasted for a while before his eyes lit up with elation .
“Buzz . ” Space rippled again as if something has been taking out and time came to a halt .
“Pop!” He withdrew his hand with something in his grasp .
It was just a pile of soil, completely black in appearance like oil - seemingly very fertile .
This soft soil, when thrown to the ground, should scatter everywhere . Strangely enough, it continued to stick together .
It seemed the grains were special and would always come back together even after a forceful separation . Upon closer inspection, he found that the tiny grains were actually squirming about, seemingly alive .
An affinity of life exuded from the palm of his hand . The soil contained majestic life force almost like a galaxy of stars . Its fertility was even more shocking . One would think that it was the most fertile pile of soil in existence - capable of gestating anything, even another world .
It could be construed as the origin of all - the stars above and living beings below . Yes, this little pile was actually priceless .
“The geezer wanted me to do all the hard work . Let’s see if he can stay calm after knowing that I have everything . ” Li Qiye smirked .
He carefully put away the soil before speaking with a serious expression: “Hmm, not quite done yet, still missing some things . No rush though, who can actually stop me now?”
There was a big yet inconspicuous change happening to the heavenly prison from the moment Li Qiye got a hold of the soil . Only the ones paying attention would notice it .
The group still waited outside of Death Pit but as time passed, the lack of signs began to bother them .
“What’s going on? Don’t tell me something bad happened?” Wild Bull who was closest to the pit looked around . Alas, the murderous energy obscured his vision .
“Should we jump down to help?” Golden Dragon also lost his patience and kept on extending his neck forward for a look .
“How are we going to help?” The scholar fanned himself while speaking: “It’s useless if someone as strong as the young noble still fails . You’re only going to die . ”
Golden Dragon smiled awkwardly and had to admit that the scholar was right . They wouldn’t be able to contribute anything outside of their lives .
Ill Lord remained the calmest in the group; his expression remained neutral while staring at the pit . He just carefully observed the changes in the murderous energy and the prison .
“What sect do you think the young noble is from? Who is his master?” The torturous wait prompted Golden Dragon to start gossiping .
“It’s insane if he actually has a master . ” The lady gently shook his head: “I can’t imagine someone capable of teaching a disciple to this level, not even a progenitor . ”
“Haha, Ill Lord talked about it earlier . Our world has three immortals, maybe one of them is his master . I mean, no one else can be such a good teacher . ” Wild Bull laughed and said .
“Stop spreading your foolishness . ” Golden Dragon gave him the side-eye: “We don’t even know if the three immortals exist . Who has actually met them? You heard of anyone?”
Wild Bull scratched his head after hearing the retort: “Well, I don’t know . ”
The so-called immortals in the truest sense of the word only belonged in the legends . Perhaps no one has seen a real immortal before .
Those who claimed to have done so were only lying or boasting without any concrete evidence .
The scholar chimed in: “I actually agree somewhat . In my opinion, no one but the three immortals can groom a disciple to the level of the young noble, so young yet so unbeatable already - completely unprecedented in history, overshadowing the previous radiance of past . Even those of Gao Yang’s level can’t compare to him . ”
“If this is the case, then immortals really do exist . ” Wild Bull said with astonishment .
These three were enjoying themselves but the attentive woman in the group spotted a change in the prison .
At the start, she felt a majestic life force heralding auspicious moisture to the prison . However, this sensation only lasted for a second .
After it disappeared, the dried prison became even drier as if it had lost all life affinity .
Prior to this, the prison was considered a death zone but it still had some strands of life lingering around . They have disappeared, turning the prison into a true location of death .
“What happened? . ” The lady took a deep breath: “It seems as if something has just been taking away . ”
She caught the attention of the group .
“Yes, there’s a taste missing . ” The scholar smacked his lips .
They have been imprisoned for an entire generation and were quite familiar with the air in this place .
“Right, even less moisture than before . ” Wild Bull did the same and felt parched .
“Down there?” Golden Dragon immediately looked over at Ill Lord .
“He did it . ” The quiet Ill Lord finally spoke with glimmers in his eyes: “He actually obtained that item . ”
“The item of immortality? I see…” Wild Bull had braced for this possibility but still became astounded .
“Even if it can’t grant eternal life, it’ll be a great longevity artifact . ” Ill Lord said with an austere expression: “It is the reason why we’ve been living for so long in this place . This prison will be nothing but death without it . ”
The scholar shrugged: “So basically, we won’t live for much longer if we can’t leave this place because at our our age, we should have died long ago . No one can last long here without the help of that item . ”
The group glanced at each other after hearing this . They realized they needed Li Qiye even more now .
“But really, it’s terrifying how he managed to do it without causing a big commotion . That power is peerless . ” Golden Dragon stated with reverence .
“Yes, even Ill Lord, the strongest among us, didn’t last for long down there . ” The scholar felt the same way .
Li Qiye has once again proven his abilities to the group . It was more than enough to make them truly submit .
‘That’s why we need to work harder . Being able to follow a master like him is an honor . ” Ill Lord has completely given in, aware of the gap between him and Li Qiye .
“Alright, we’re done here . ” A leisurely voice disrupted their conversation .
Li Qiye casually strolled out of the pit as if this dangerous place was nothing but his own garden .
