The Amethyst Spiritual Bamboo originated from the Xuanhuang Microcosm of the sea realm in the lower world. It was a heavenly resource that could heal souls, and its effects were extremely powerful. Coupled with the fact that it grew in the Xuanhuang Microcosm, allowing Xuanhuang Qi to permeate it all year round, it possessed some Xuanhuang Qi, which strengthened its effects even more.
As a result, even though the grade of Jian Chen’s Amethyst Spiritual Bamboo was not particularly high, and it was supposed to have no evident effects on Godkings, when Jian Chen dripped the sap on his forehead, his soul still recovered in a very short amount of time.
“I’ve used up all the Amethyst Spiritual Bamboo I obtained from the Xuanhuang Microcosm.” Jian Chen slowly opened his eyes. His wounds had already recovered during the half a month he spent unconscious, and now that his soul had healed as well, he was at his peak condition once again.
However, he showed no joy at all. Instead, he frowned and seemed worried.
The previous battle had allowed him to properly realise that the backlash of the evil power was becoming more and more powerful. Although he could still suppress the evil power right now, once the power of his soul was severely depleted and his wounds were too heavy, the evil power in his soul would be able to fight back at any moment. Even the warnings of the sword spirits would be useless.
However, the part that made him feel powerless was that he had already become a Godking, yet he was still unable to solve this personal problem completely.
This was because the evil power had fused with his soul, basically becoming a part of him. Purging it would not be easy.
At this moment, Kai Ya arrived before Jian Chen. She looked at him in worry, and she seemed to know that something burdened Jian Chen’s mind. She said, “Jian Chen, you don’t need to worry too much. There are many supreme Godkings from the Godkings’ Throne in the Neptunean Divine Palace. They all come from peak organisations littered across the Saints’ World. Their knowledge cannot be compared with those regular Godkings. They might know some ancient method to completely deal with the problem of your soul.”
“In our current situation, it’s difficult for us to make peace with those supreme Godkings unless we hand Xiao Man over. Whatever, let’s not talk about this anymore. Even if we worry, it’ll be useless. It’s better for us to see the world beneath the lava. Hopefully, it won’t disappoint me too much,” Jian Chen stood up, and the grimness disappeared from his face in that instance. He smiled freely, and with a thought, he controlled the power of the Anatta Tower to move him and Kai Ya to its entrance.
The entrance of the Anatta Tower was a damaged door. It was damaged to the point where it did not even need to be opened, and anyone could pass through it. It was even possible to see the surging lava outside through the entrance.
Of course, Jian Chen knew that this door was only a matter of appearance. The Anatta Tower was a god artifact of impressive quality after all. Let alone right now, even if the door had been completely taken away, no one could enter the interior of the Anatta Tower without his permission. Even if every inch of the space outside was filled with lava, it was unable to seep in through the gaps in the door.
“The lava here is far too powerful. With the current strength of the senses of my soul, I can’t expand it beyond the lava at all. It looks like I need to go out personally,” Jian Chen frowned and said sternly. He understood just how terrifying the lava outside was. Even if he pushed the defences of his Chaotic Body to the limits, he could not last for very long.
“You have to be careful. This is the very bottom of the lava seas, where it is far hotter than the surface. With the toughness of your body, you were able to last a while on the surface, but at the bottom, you’ll struggle to even last ten seconds,” Kai Ya stood up and said from beside Jian Chen. She was extremely considerate, and she appeared to be worried.
“Don’t worry. I know my limits. I don’t want to lose my life here either,” Jian Chen looked at Kai Ya in a way to tell her to stop worrying. His face was filled with confidence. The lava at the bottom was indeed terrifying, but it was impossible for this lava to kill him instantly, where he would not even have the time to retreat back into the tower.
Jian Chen sucked in a deep breath and silently circulated his Chaotic Force, pushing the Chaotic Body to its limits. Afterwards, he set up a screen of light around himself composed from the Laws of the Sword. After making all these preparations, he left the Anatta Tower with a flash and entered the scorching lava.
“Jian Chen, you have to be careful. Don’t travel too far away, and if you can’t endure it, return immediately. Don’t ever bite off more than you can chew…” Kai Ya said from behind him. At the same time, she had already made up her mind that once Jian Chen encountered any dangers, she would charge out without any hesitation.
As soon as he left the Anatta Tower, an indescribably terrifying heat came rolling over. In just a single instance, the screen of light around Jian Chen became dull, and in less than two seconds, it had shattered already.
“What terrifying lava. If this lava was outside, probably even space won’t be able to endure the heat and shatter as a result. The lava at the bottom really does have the ability to melt god artifacts. Only high quality god artifacts like the Neptunean Divine Palace can endure such terrifying heat with so much ease,” Jian Chen was secretly surprised. The moment his screen of light shattered, the scorching lava pressed against his body, and he immediately experienced a heart-wrenching pain like a million ants gnawing away at him. It caused him to tremble gently.
However, this pain was basically no different from an itch compared to the torture brought on by each breakthrough of the Chaotic Body. He endured it easily.
But in the next moment, Jian Chen suddenly froze up. This lasted for just a split second, and he began to tremble once again.
This trembling was not because of how terrifying the heat was, but it was brought on by the great joy and excitement in his heart.
Jian Chen was unable to expand the senses of his soul at the bottom of the lava, and his visibility was reduced to only a hundred meters away. However, within that hundred-meter range, the ground was basically littered with fire-red divine crystals of various sizes.
Jian Chen was naturally familiar with these crystals. They were the valuable fire divine crystals.
A single fire divine crystal was worth ten times as much as a supreme grade divine crystal of the same size.
However, there were so many fire divine crystals at the bottom of the lava that they were like the stones in a riverbed. They blanketed the ground, forming a thick layer. It was truly innumerable.
Jian Chen could not help but begin breathing raggedly. Joy filled him completely.
What was his reason for coming to the Neptunean Divine Palace? It was not for the legacies, nor for the treasures. It was mainly for him to obtain enough wealth so that he could use a teleportation formation to return to the Tian Yuan clan as well as teleport to where the Daoist Sect of Divine Sound and the Ice Goddess Hall stood.
The Daoist Sect of Divine Sound had his wife, Shangguan Mu’er.
The Ice Goddess Hall had his sister, who he had not seen for many years, Changyang Mingyue.
There was even the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng where the Anatta Grand Prime resided, as Ming Dong had been taken to the Saints’ World by the Heavenly Palace of Bisheng back on the Tian Yuan Continent.
Travelling to different planes quickly would cost an astronomical sum of divine crystals. Otherwise, he would have to take spaceships that would take thousands of years or even tens of thousands of years.
Jian Chen did not have the time to wait thousands of years, so he needed to use the teleportation formations.
Yet right now, all the fire divine crystals before him made Jian Chen see the hopes of reuniting with Shangguan Mu’er, his sister Changyang Mingyue, and Ming Dong.
