Chapter 0243: Chaotic Star Space
This kind of aura undoubtedly belonged to a Class 6 monstrous beast, Ning Cheng already knew that it would be too late for him if he wanted to find out what kind of monstrous beast it was at this moment. He immediately stimulated his Twin Heavenly Cloud Wings with all the power he could muster. Even if his strength had risen exponentially during his retreat, but he was well aware that he was definitely not a match for a Class 6 monstrous beast in a head on fight.
Ning Cheng had just managed to dodge out of the way, when a dark red shadow flashed past the spot he was just a moment before.
Using the teleportation like speed of the Twin Heavenly Cloud Wings allowed Ning Cheng to escape unharmed, while at the same time he was also able to finally have a glimpse at this monstrous beast, which was covered in a scarlet glow, was incomparably fast, while at the same time also had two heads. Ning Cheng finally was able to recall what kind of monstrous beast was it, it was a Rainbow Blood Dual Headed Alligator commonly seen in the Yi Xing Ocean. This monstrous beast was not only uncommonly fast, but also specialised in sucking blood. Its skin also had a very high value on the market; a Class 6 Rainbow Blood Dual Headed Alligator’s skin can actually be refined into a very good quality defensive or even a flight type magical weapon.
But no matter how valuable was it, Ning Cheng was well aware that in the face of this kind of monstrous beast, the only thing that he could do was escape.
This Rainbow Blood Dual Headed Alligator at first did not seem to register Ning Cheng’s escape, showing that it was actually a bit slow witted. It looked as if it was having doubts about its speed, otherwise how could this puny cultivator manage to escape.
Ning Cheng did not wait for the Rainbow Blood Dual Headed Alligator to turn and pounce towards him once again, as he once again stimulated his Twin Heavenly Cloud Wings to create as much distance as possible between them. But this Rainbow Blood Dual Headed Alligator unexpectedly was not willing to let go of its prey, instead it turned around to pursue Ning Cheng. Moreover, its speed at this moment was also slightly faster when compared to Ning Cheng wielding the Twin Heavenly Cloud Wings.
Ning Cheng was quite badly startled on seeing this, as he quickly brought out the True Brahma Sword metamorphosing it into the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel.
He was marked by a monstrous beast, even if he tried to flee into the ocean he knew that he would not be able to get away, unless he used the Escaping Talisman. But because Ning Cheng was well aware as to how precious an Escaping Talisman was, as such he was not willing to easily use the Escaping Talisman.
The True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel under Ning Cheng’s stimulation brought out a flickering shadow. Ning Cheng directly landed on this flickering shadow, as he simultaneously stimulated the Imperial Jade Seal to draw out the Power of Hope, which then flowed into the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel.
“Swish” Because of such a tremendous acceleration, Ning Cheng, who was sitting on it, because of the enormous inertia, was almost blown away from this Buddha Fire Wheel.
But Ning Cheng, at this time, could simply not think about the matter of him almost falling off as he looked at the scenery flashing by at the outskirts of the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel. This kind of speed was something completely fear inducing.
This kind of speed was something that Ning Cheng had felt for the first time. His Spiritual Consciousness was simply not able to fully adapt to it. It simply was not even able to sweep outside, after a bit of time, his Spiritual Consciousness barely was able to just adapt to the extreme flight speed of this magical weapon.
At this moment, Ning Cheng could only see what was just outside the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel, which was surrounded by four Arhats; these four Arhats each were crazily rotating a huge fire wheel. These four Buddha Fire Wheels were the ones driving the entire magical weapon that was the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel, in a meteor-like manner.
Ning Cheng finally stood up and looked back, as he pondered as to where the Rainbow Blood Dual Headed Alligator went?
Such a horrifying flight type magical weapon, this kind of speed was simply too terrifying to even imagine.
His True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel was simply like wind in general, and was surrounded all around by Array Formations and Restrictions. Even if its actual speed was matchlessly terrifying, he could not even hear or even feel the slightest sounds of the wind outside.
The Power of Hope contained in the Imperial Jade Seal was similar to money being injected into the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel, which pushed the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel to increasingly fast speeds. Ning Cheng found that with his current ability, there was no way for him to forcibly slow down the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel.
Ning Cheng was quite sure that if he used this kind of speed to escape from the Le Continent, then even those experts at the Crucible Transformation Realm might not necessarily be able to catch up to him.
After the time it took for half an incense stick to burn, Ning Cheng finally calmed down. He began focusing his efforts on trying to control the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel, wanting to bring the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel under his control so as to advance under his direction, rather than flying aimlessly. At this moment, the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel was rushing its way into the sky in a diagonal manner, if he was not able to find a way to control the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel, then even he would not be able to predict as to where this True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel would lead him.
An hour later, Ning Cheng still could not think of any way to control the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel. Moreover, he also could not stop the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel from absorbing the Power of Hope as it continued to fly.
Although this flight type magical weapon had been completely refined by him, as such he was aware on how to control the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel. However, he was not able to completely refine the Imperial Jade Seal, because of which although he could draw out the Power of Hope to power the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel, in the end he was not able to actually control the output.
The True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel was climbing higher and higher and had already reached the point that he could not even see the shadow of the Yi Xing Ocean from what little could he see from the surroundings.
At this moment, being anxious would not be of any use, Ning Cheng thought as he sat down and tried to use his own Spiritual Consciousness to control the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel.
As another few hours passed by, Ning Cheng finally was able to slightly control the mobility of the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel with his Spiritual Consciousness, as he directed the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel to finally move forward, rather than rising upwards at a set level.
As for the Power of Hope pouring out of the Imperial Jade Seal, he still did not have any way of controlling it; as such, Ning Cheng once again poured his efforts in continuing to refine the Imperial Jade Seal, while simultaneously using his Spiritual Consciousness to sweep out. He wanted to have a look, as to what was outside and also where he was, especially after a few hours of crazy ascension.
But this time when Ning Cheng swept out with his Spiritual Consciousness, an extremely berserk aura almost smothered his Spiritual Consciousness, while at the same time, that aura, working its way through his Spiritual Consciousness link, unexpectedly exploded into his Sea of Consciousness. Just like countless haphazard Wind Edges, mixed with innumerable quantities of crushed stones, continuously pounded at his Sea of Consciousness.
Ning Cheng, under this kind of attack, turned completely pale, as violent stabs of pain pulsed through his Sea of Consciousness, making him almost cough out a mouthful of blood.
“Chaotic Star Space?” Ning Cheng was completely shocked as he spoke aloud, he completely did not expect that the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel would actually bring him to such a high place.
About the Chaotic Star Space, Ning Cheng only had the information that he had read over a few random jade strips that he had collected, and knew that it was not filled with normal Star Gas. Rather it was the first layer of space just outside the atmosphere, this layer of space was what acted as a boundary between the atmosphere and the void outside. In this place, there were all kinds of Laws mixed in a disorderly manner, chaotic Astral Winds and meteorites could also be found screaming through this space all year round. He had read that even Crucible Transformation Cultivators would not be able to come to this place. It was because of these reasons that this space was also called as the Chaotic Star Space.
How could the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel bring him to this kind of terrifying place? One had to know that just above this layer of Chaotic Star Space, which was acting as the boundary, was the thing that separated this world from the void. Fortunately, the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel had not brought him outside the world and into the void. But even so, Ning Cheng was aware that even if the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel were stimulated even more, even then it would not be enough to take him into the void outside the world.
Going outside into the void meant to journey into the territories out in the vast void, which also meant that one had to tear through this space in order to achieve such a thing. Some of the pinnacle experts could tear through the atmosphere covering the Yi Xing Mainland, go through the layer of Chaotic Star Space, and then tear through the boundary before finally stepping into the void.
But it would need an extremely huge amount of energy per person, to be able to tear through the space, anytime and anywhere. This kind of thing was simply a legend, and at least in the Yi Xing Mainland was something that was never recorded down. Ning Cheng had listened to Taishu Shi saying that it was something that only his Taishu Clan’s Ancestor had achieved.
Someone who could actually able to pass through the layer of Chaotic Star Space was absolutely a top class expert, and would be far more powerful than Crucible Transformation Cultivators. As for ordinary Crucible Transformation Cultivators, even reaching the layer of Chaotic Star Space was something that could not be achieved, not to mention tearing through the boundaries of the world and stepping into the void.
Although Ning Cheng was seeing these things with his own eyes, but he was also aware that in the Yi Xing Mainland it was something completely unheard off let alone see, after all, a Crucible Transformation Cultivator was already the highest level of existence in the 9 Continents.
After the initial shock, Ning Cheng slowly started being accustomed to the stabs of pain, and after a few more moments, he once again began to slowly allow his Spiritual Consciousness to seep out. This place reminded him of the Angry Axe Lotus Flower Pond from the Angry Axe Valley, he could feel that this place was quite good in cultivating one’s Spiritual Consciousness.
Ning Cheng did not have any kind of cultivation methods that he could use to cultivate his Spiritual Consciousness, but he could ascertain that a place like the Chaotic Star Space could definitely help him in that regard. In this manner, he slowly started to stretch out his Spiritual Consciousness, starting from the time he was unable to extend it to this present moment where he finally was able to extend it outwards in a range of a few feet. As days went past, his Spiritual Consciousness was also growing more and more powerful.
A few months later, Ning Cheng’s Spiritual Consciousness could now sweep out in a range of a few hundred meters. Not only that, Ning Cheng could also feel that his Sea of Consciousness was also growing more and more solid and firm, causing the circulation of his Spiritual Consciousness to become even relaxed and mellow.
Sure enough, it was really as he had thought it out to be, this place really was a good place to help your Spiritual Consciousness grow. Unfortunately, the Chaotic Star Space was also quite fearful; otherwise, he could have also used this place to temper his body. Moreover, he truly, just like the cultivation of Spiritual Consciousness, did not know any kind of cultivation method that he could use to temper his fleshy body. If such things truly exist, then he will certainly think of a way to obtain it.
After all, originally, the Everlasting Blue Thunder City and the Chaotic Star Space were a good place to refine and cultivate one’s Spiritual Consciousness and fleshy body.
As another few months passed by, Ning Cheng’s Sea of Consciousness grew increasingly thick, and his Spiritual Consciousness could now sweep over a range of a thousand meters away from him. Ning Cheng understood that, despite not being able to advance in levels, his strength definitely had an exponential improvement.
At this moment, his Spiritual Consciousness was probably a lot stronger than some of the Profound Core Cultivators. Moreover, his Spiritual Consciousness was not only more powerful, but was also a lot more condensed.
Feeling how powerful his Spiritual Consciousness had grown, Ning Cheng suddenly had a thought to once again give the Everlasting Blue Thunder City residing in his Zifu another shot and see whether he could mobilize it or not.
Ning Cheng was still thinking about how to mobilize the Everlasting Blue Thunder City, when he felt that the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel had suddenly started to slow down.
It seems that the Power of Hope has finally started to dry up, Ning Cheng once again immediately controlled the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel to fly downwards, and sure enough, this time he could change the direction of the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel in a much more relaxed manner. Half an hour later, the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel finally emerged from the Chaotic Star Space, and Ning Cheng’s Spiritual Consciousness, that was just like a caged eagle back in that place, almost instantaneously relaxed.
This time his Spiritual Consciousness could sweep out over an area that was many dozens of times larger than what it could before, and was also incomparably clear.
After struggling for several months, the level of his Spiritual Consciousness really could not be compared to what it was before.
He was still at a very high altitude, but was not surrounded by the Chaotic Star Space, moreover now that the Power of Hope inside the Imperial Jade Seal was almost used up; he finally was able to gain control of the situation. Ning Cheng quickly took control of the Imperial Jade Seal, as he put away both the Imperial Jade Seal and the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel, while simultaneously taking out an ordinary airship type magical weapon.
Ning Cheng was now quite clear on the function of the Power of Hope; as such, he was not willing to completely use up the Power of Hope stored in the Imperial Jade Seal. Once he ran out of it, then even with his current ability, wanting to find another source of Power of Hope was something that was simply impossible.
Although this airship type magical weapon was a medium grade Spiritual Artefact, but it’s speed could not even be compared to a fraction of that of the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel. Fortunately, Ning Cheng did not care about it, he was certain that in whichever direction that he had moved forward, after such a long flight with the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel, it the Gui Yuan City was still able to find him, then it really would be quite strange.
Ning Cheng allowed the airship to land, as he tried to use his newly ungraded Spiritual Consciousness to bring out the Everlasting Blue Thunder City. Once this thing could be brought out, then in the face of a terrifying attack, the Everlasting Blue Thunder City could at least block it.
Using his thick and vigorous Spiritual Consciousness to stimulate the Everlasting Blue Thunder City, Ning Cheng almost broke open his Sea of Consciousness, only being able to bring out a faint flickering shadow of the Thunder City. Moreover, this flickering shadow also disappeared in a short while. Ning Cheng drew in a deep breath; he knew that it should be because his True Essence was simply insufficient for this kind of act.
A few days later, Ning Cheng’s Spiritual Consciousness had swept over a large swath of ocean water, evidently even when he flew for such a long time with the help of the True Brahma Buddha Fire Wheel, he was still in the Yi Xing Ocean.
A huge ship appeared in the range of his Spiritual Consciousness as it navigated the ocean, allowing Ning Cheng understand that he might be near to a place from where cultivators conducted their activities.
