Chapter 1956: The Empyrean Demon Orb Appears
Jian Chen, Sacredfeather, Houston, and Shen Jian looked at one another and immediately got into action.
From the previous practice, they had already developed a tacit understanding, so when they cast the Moonlight Illumination Formation, they were able to do it without much effort at all. They were extremely well-versed at it.
Very soon, the four of them cast down the Moonlight Illumination Formation perfectly.
Pure, glistening Moonlight Force surrounded their bodies. A barrier completely condensed from Moonlight Force appeared around them, covering a range of several hundred meters.
Even though the formation was completed, there was not the slightest pulse of energy apart from the light that shone as brightly as the moon.
As a result, the Moonlight Illumination Formation could only be discovered through sight. It was impossible to find it at all through the other senses, including the senses of the soul.
The Moonlight Illumination Formation could not attack or defend. Its only usage was to cover up everything within the formation.
Of course, the premise was that it did not surpass the formation’s limits.
Fairy Hao Yue no longer hesitated either when she saw that the Moonlight Illumination Formation was complete. She immediately began to smash through the formations.
She was slightly stern. Primordial realm laws descended on her, and all her movements possessed devastating power.
However, since it was purposefully suppressed, this Primordial realm power did not erupt. She concealed it perfectly.
Fairy Hao Yue got through the formation extremely quickly. In under a minute, there was a hiss, and a hole gradually appeared in the formation that blocked the path to the next floor. It revealed a dark passage.
Chilling winds whistled through the passage, and it was filled with a demonic aura. A demonic aura that was especially pure and dense flowed out from the passage.
“To avoid attracting attention, I’ve only created a temporary entrance through this formation. It will close up by itself very soon, so come on in,” fairy Hao Yue said to Jian Chen and the others. With a wave of her hand, Moonlight Force appeared, and all the demonic aura in the passage was instantaneously dispersed. With a flash, she entered the passageway that led to the next floor.
The four of them immediately removed the formation and disappeared into the passage with a flash.
Soon after the four of them had entered, the hole in the formation completely closed up, returning to its previous state.
The headquarters of the Empyrean Demon Cult only seemed like a huge castle from the outside. Inside, it was so large that it seemed to be composed of miniature worlds. The space on each floor had completely surpassed the castle’s size.
In particular, the halls, secret rooms, and so on all seemed to possess worlds of their own.
The castle was filled with formations. Every single one of them was extremely powerful, either set up openly or hidden in space. Just the pulses of energy they gave off were enough to make the four of them to shiver.
With their strength, they did not even dare to expand the senses of their souls because they were afraid that they would not be able to sense a Godking hidden somewhere and hence expose themselves.
As a result, the four of them could only follow behind fairy Hao Yue.
Along the way, the four of them avoided all the dangerous regions and the patrol of Godkings under fairy Hao Yue’s lead. They advanced through the headquarters silently, without raising any attention at all.
It had to be mentioned that the security of the headquarters was extremely tight. Ordinary Infinite Primes would face life-threatening danger if they infiltrated here.
However, fairy Hao Yue was no ordinary Infinite Prime. There was no fear or danger under her lead.
As they travelled deeper in, they gradually approached the core region of the headquarters while fairy Hao Yue’s face had gradually become stern as well.
“This should be the entrance to the next floor, but there’s an extremely powerful formation hidden here,” fairy Hao Yue stopped at the end of a hallway. She stared ahead as a sliver of seriousness appeared on her face.
“There is a trapping and killing formation, coupled with an illusionary formation in there. The formation is so powerful that even Seventh Heavenly Layer Infinite Primes will probably be done for if they get caught in there. It looks like the area above should be the most important part of the headquarters. Maybe the real reason why the Empyrean Demon Cult is waging so many wars is in there,” fairy Hao Yue said sternly. After studying the formation for a while, she said confidently, “However, this formation still can’t stop us. It’s just that getting through the formation might create a disturbance so great that the Moonlight Illumination Formation can’t cover it.”
“Fall into formation!” A while later, fairy Hao Yue made up her mind.
“Please wait, fairy Hao Yue!” Houston said all of a sudden. He seemed uneasy.
Fairy Hao Yue turned around to look at Houston. Jian Chen, Shen Jian, and Sacredfeather all looked at him as well.
“What’s wrong, uncle Xiu?” Jian Chen asked in confusion.
Houston stared at the formation up ahead. After a moment of silence, he said, “Maybe this isn’t the right path.”
Jian Chen, Shen Jian, and Sacredfeather immediately became surprised. They looked at Houston doubtfully.
Even fairy Hao Yue stared at Houston in surprise. She asked, “How do you know that it’s not the right path?”
“Because of this!” With a thought, a thumb-sized orb gradually floated out from his forehead. The orb was completely blood-red as if it had been condensed from blood. It was demonic and seemed slightly sinister.
It was the Empyrean Demon Orb Jian Chen had originally given to Houston.
Fairy Hao Yue studied the Empyrean Demon Orb for a while and said, “This is a demonic god artifact of quite a high quality. It looks like you’ve gained the artifact spirit’s recognition since you are able to use this god artifact with your current strength.”
Houston nodded. He had learnt about the artifact spirit of the Empyrean Demon Orb long ago. He said, “The artifact spirit just told me to take another path.”
After a moment of thought, fairy Hao Yue said, “Then lead the way!”
The five of them changed their path. Houston was responsible for leading them afterwards, allowing them to directly travel towards where the Empyrean Demon Orb told him to go.
Before long, the five of them stopped. It was not because they did not wanted to stop, but that they had reached a dead end. They had run out of places to go.
“There’s no formation here. It’s a dead end.” Fairy Hao Yue furrowed her brows after studying the surroundings.
However, at this moment, the Empyrean Demon Orb began to shine with a dazzling red light that surrounded all of them.
