The fearsome but silent rainbow crystal high up in Zhang Che’s spiritual sea wasn’t there just for show.
Whenever Zhang Che’s soul was under threat, it would display its ferocity.
In his spiritual sea, the rainbow crystal radiated dazzling light, and Zhang Che instantly sobered up. The piercing pain and uncomfortable swelling feeling disappeared without a trace.
In the next moment, a blinding red light suddenly erupted where the Scarlet Flame Drake’s innate flames burned.
This streak of red light was very different from the scarlet light from before.
The streak of scarlet light from before was like burning blood, and now the red light was like a rising sun. The two’s attributes were completely different.
The scarlet flames scattered. The sword floated silently in the air, the bloody light coiling around it having faded away.
An extremely pure red glow radiated from the translucent blade. It felt as if a grand sword intent was spreading into the surrounding.
“My initial guess was actually right!” A hint of light flashed across Zhang Che’s eyes, his breathing hastening.
“Come on, baby!” Zhang Che waved his hand, calling out softly, waiting for the red sword to fly into his hand.
However, Zhang Che felt awkward in the next moment.
The red sword shook in the air a few times, dipping slightly towards the Scarlet Flame Drake’s direction, as if it was expressing gratitude, then turned into a streak of red light, flying towards the rock wall at the side at extreme speed.
“What the, my doggie helped you out and you’re leaving without showing any thanks?!” Zhang Che grew anxious. He hurriedly had the Scarlet Flame Drake give chase. At the same time, he jumped onto the Darkfiend Abyssal Dragon’s back and ordered the Purple Crystal Tortoise to open up the sealed cave entrance.
By now, the scarlet red sword had broken through the rock wall and turned into streak of light, flying far away.
When Zhang Che finally emerged from the cave, he only saw the tail end of the sword’s streak of light, flying extremely far away.
“This is simply being ungrateful! Intolerable!” Zhang Che was depressed. He ignored the fact that it was late at night and directly ordered the Darkfiend Abyssal Dragon to fly in pursuit.
Even if they couldn’t catch up to it, he had to try!
What difference was there between you and a salted fish if you didn’t try?
The Darkfiend Abyssal Dragon flew as fast as it could, but he was quite a bit slower than the streak of sword light. Zhang Che could only watch as it gradually disappeared from his sight.
“Chase, continue chasing!” Zhang Che ordered, his eyes red. The scarlet sword was obviously unusual. As long as there was still a slight chance, Zhang Che would keep chasing, wanting to see where it flew to.
He didn’t believe that it could keep flying non-stop.
Indeed, the scarlet sword didn’t keep flying.
Zhang Che chased it over several dozen kilometers, and finally saw that streak of scarlet light again.
He was overjoyed; his persistence paid off in the end!
-Wait, what’s that fiery light in the valley?-
As he got closer, Zhang Che saw the sword’s scarlet streak of light finding its way into the camp below.
“I’m finally seeing other people!” Zhang Che nearly wept from joy.
At long last! Zhang Che had arrived at this secret plane for two days now, and he had been alone all this time. Even those strange creatures weren’t able to produce any sound. The secret plane was like a silent world.
That feeling of solitude could drive one to madness!
It had only been two days; if it lasted any longer, Zhang Che wondered if he could still speak after returning.
It wasn’t so bad when Zhang Che was in the beast world in the past. At the very least, the environment was still normal, with brighter colors, and he could hear the sounds produced by the various exotic beasts and small animals. As such, he didn’t feel that the atmosphere was too depressing.
When Zhang Che suddenly saw that camp ahead, one could well imagine the happiness he felt.
Of course, he didn’t let his guard down. He summoned both the Scarlet Flame Drake and the Purple Crystal Tortoise, each of them lying on the Darkfiend Abyssal Dragon’s back, ready to take on any enemies.
The beastmasters who entered the secret plane weren’t weak by any means, and they came from all over the globe. Only the gods knew whether those in the camp ahead were fair or dark-skinned, or perhaps they were neither black or white?
As the saying went, “One shouldn’t have the mind to hurt others, but one definitely should be mindful of others.”
Zhang Che had to be prepared, in case he didn’t have time to react if he was attacked.
As for going with the saying, “Strike first and gain the upperhand”, killing all of them and snatching back the red sword that flew into one of the camps, Zhang Che never thought about that at all.
After all, he wasn’t a cold-blooded murderer who could bring himself to kill everyone else for the sake of benefits.
-Maybe I should try to come to an “agreement” with them? After all, I was the one who contributed to freeing that sword from that bloody glow.-
Thinking about that, Zhang Che couldn’t help but feel angry. That red sword was simply the epitome of an ingrate. His baby helped free it and return its freedom, and yet it didn’t even do anything and turned to run.
-What was that about!?
-If you ran, so be it! Why did you fly all the way here, into one of the beastmaster’s tents? Is your sweetheart here?-
As it turned out, Zhang Che guessed correctly. The red sword’s sweetheart was really in that tent.
In the tent, following the red sword’s entry, a blond man suddenly woke up from shock. With a wave of his hand, a long sword that looked identical to that red sword, except that it was white instead, appeared in his hand.
The two swords trembled in excitement the moment they met, letting out a crisp, unified sword cry.
The blond man’s wary expression instantly froze and revealed an overjoyed look in the next moment.
Originally, he was still feeling upset after one of the swords flew away yesterday in that dangerous place. He didn’t expect it to come flying back by itself after half a day!
“Good!” the blond man smiled. His free left hand spread outwards, extending towards the red sword floating in front of him.
At this moment, however, the white sword suddenly struggled free from his right hand and flew into the air, tangling around with the red sword like a pair of lovers who were separated for a long time and finally reuniting, expressing their love for one another.
Outside the camp, the Darkfiend Abyssal Dragon came flying in at great speed.
The few subdued beasts on guard duty around the tents immediately shouted out warnings. Afterwards, they turned to face the direction the Darkfiend Abyssal Dragon was coming from, their faces filled with hostility, seemingly warning Zhang Che, -You are trespassing private grounds. Please leave immediately, or we will have to take defensive measures!-
Following the roars of the few subdued beasts’, the atmosphere in the camp immediately heated up.
The sleeping beastmasters jumped out from the sleeping bags one after another, streaks of light immediately shooting out following waves of their hands and materializing into armors around them. Without even putting on their clothes they came running out of their tents.
In the tent in the middle of the camp, the blond man furrowed his brow. Just as he was about to come walking out of his tent, the two circling swords in the air seemed to have finished expressing their feelings for each other and suddenly pierced through the tent, flying out.
