Chapter 180: Danger Approaches

The present Jiang Yun is no longer the young boy who first came out of Mang Mountains and knew nothing.

Now he has experienced many things and seen scenes that some people may never see in their lifetime.

For example, not long ago, the spectacular world within the Taoist DemonHun Tian.

However, at this moment, as he looked at the scene in front of him, Jiang Yun was once again deeply shocked!

Before him was an immense expanse of deep blue water, its surface as smooth as a mirror.

There were towering waves dozens or even hundreds of feet high, advancing rapidly from the distant waters and crashing violently against the cliffs beneath his feet, producing a thunderous roar like the fury of heaven and earth.

Clearly, the sound he had just heard came from this vast water area.

Standing on the cliff, looking down from a high vantage point, a sense of insignificance surged once again in Jiang Yun's heart.

Compared to this water area, everything about himself, even the name of Taoist DemonHun Tian, seemed extremely insignificant.

"What water area is this?"

Hearing Jiang Yun's dream-like murmur, the woman standing beside him couldn't help but furrow her brows slightly and asked, "You've never seen it before?"

Jiang Yun shook his head and said, "No!"

"This is the sea!"

The sea!

This word suddenly touched Jiang Yun's heart.

He naturally knew about the sea, just like he knew about snow, but this was indeed the first time in his life that he truly saw the sea with his own eyes!

The vast sea truly brought him great awe, and it instantly brought countless thoughts to his mind.

"So this is the sea! However, this surging and unfathomable feeling, I've experienced it before, it was the water transformed from that black stone!"

Even though the water from the black stone just looks small from the outside, like the size of a hand, when you look inside, you'll feel like you're facing the sea.

"The world I live in is actually just an island, and this sea is the ocean surrounding Wushan Island, also known as Boundary Sea!"

Boundary Sea, No-Returning Road!

Jiang Yun suddenly turned to the girl in white and asked, "Excuse me, do you know where No-Returning Road is?"

"No-Returning Road?" The girl in white hesitated for a moment and then shook her head, saying, "I don't know."

Although the girl's answer disappointed Jiang Yun a bit, he was expecting it.

Not many people know about No-Returning Road, and the sea is so vast, with different parts like the inner and outer seas, so No-Returning Road could be anywhere in it.

After that, Jiang Yun fell silent and suddenly sat cross-legged on the cliff, quietly gazing at the sea in front of him.

The girl looked at Jiang Yun, then at the sea, sighed suddenly, and said, "If you've only come to see the sea, then just watch for a while and leave. Both this sea and this area are different now than they used to be!"

"I don't understand what you are saying."

"Grandpa said, 'The sea has become angry! In the past, you could only see the sea like this for three to four months every year, and the rest of the time, the sea was frozen. But since three years ago, everything has changed!'"

"Not only is the sea no longer freezing, it is also expanding continuously, rising constantly, swallowing a large amount of surrounding land, and some small islands are directly submerged."

"The cliff we are standing on right now probably won't last much longer and will disappear!"

The woman's voice carried a hint of sadness.

Jiang Yun's heart sank with it.

Because of what the other person said, he thought of the truth behind the No-Returning Road and realized that everyone on Wushan Island was actually living in danger.

This danger comes from the sea outside the island!

Because the sea is gradually encroaching on Wushan Island bit by bit.

Especially in the past few thousand years, the rate of swallowing has suddenly accelerated. No one knows when Wushan Island will be completely swallowed up.

Apart from the swallowing of the Boundary Sea, there are many powerful groups within the Boundary Sea. They can survive in the sea, posing a great threat to the creatures living on the island.

Now, combining the woman's words, Jiang Yun easily deduced that perhaps the swallowing speed of the Boundary Sea increased again three years ago, and this area is adjacent to the Boundary Sea, so it is the first to be affected.

They never expected danger to come so quickly!

"By the way, miss, as I walked all the way here, I passed by several ruins..."

"Those were small groups killed in the chaos!"

The woman's face showed more sorrow, gently tucking a strand of hair that the sea breeze had blown loose behind her ear, and softly said, "As the sea grows angrier, for those of us living along the coast, survival becomes increasingly difficult. Our minds are restless, and we are uneasy all day!"

"Under the influence of this emotion, many demon races have begun forcibly plundering the resources and everything of other groups, trying to increase their chances of survival when the end times come."

After pondering for a moment, Jiang Yun understood!

No one wants to die, everyone wants to stay alive. To stay alive, people think they need to become stronger and more powerful. So the best way is to take things from others.

But Jiang Yun was still a little confused and asked, "What about the Ten Thousand Demons Cave? As the largest sect in North Mountain, don't they care about this?"

The woman looked at Jiang Yun for a while and said with a bitter smile, "Ten Thousand Demons Cave? Now I finally believe you have come from far away."

Jiang Yun stayed silent and just looked at the woman.

The woman continued, "The demon race dare to be so bold and ruthless, openly looting and killing because they are supported by the Ten Thousand Demons Cave."

"What!" Jiang Yun's eyes suddenly flashed with cold light.

"The Ten Thousand Demons Cave is actually a sect formed by countless demon races. Originally, joining was voluntary. However, with the sea changing in anger, the Ten Thousand Demons Cave issued an order for all demon races to submit, handing over resources, cultivation techniques, and more."

"If they refuse to obey or join, the Ten Thousand Demons Cave will not provide protection. They may even send those who have already submitted to raid or even exterminate them!"

"In fact, if the Ten Thousand Demons Cave really protected each race wholeheartedly, many would join. But in reality, that's not the case."

"The Ten Thousand Demons Cave only wants the talents, resources, and foundations of each tribe. They will use the most talented individuals of each tribe, and once they are no longer useful, they do not care about their well-being."

Although Jiang Yun is not a demon, he couldn't help showing a fierce look upon hearing these words.

As the most powerful sect, instead of helping others in times of trouble, they choose to worsen the situation and use the calamity as an excuse to threaten and plunder others.

This is truly an outrageous act that angers both humans and gods!

However, despite Jiang Yun's anger, he also knows that with his current strength, there is simply no way to tackle such a situation.

After a long silence, Jiang Yun softly said, "I will stay here for a while longer. If there is anything I can help with, please feel free to speak up, miss!"
