Half a day later, Han Pojun had recovered considerably. Of course, his injuries had been too heavy, so it would still take him some time to fully recover.
"Thank you for your help, young brother. I, Han Pojun, will never forget this favor," said Han Pojun gratefully.
He was curious as to where this young genius had come from. This young man actually had such a high-tier puppet in his possession. One ought to know that such powerful puppets were almost nonexistent even among tier-7 organizations. Only those top tier-7 organizations would have some, and even for them, puppets like this would be their treasure.
"Since you're Big Brother Du's friend, just call me Xiang Shaoyun. I consider him my big brother," said Xiang Shaoyun politely.
"You're Old Du's little brother?" Han Pojun asked in astonishment.
"Yes, you can say that," Xiang Shaoyun replied with a faint smile.
"No wonder you helped us," said Han Pojun in realization.
"What is going on with Big Brother Du?" Xiang Shaoyun asked.
"He's fine," said Han Pojun.
"Why is he in the stone if he's fine?" Xiang Shaoyun questioned.
Han Pojun took a deep breath and said, "This is a blood cocoon stone, a treasured stone produced by the blood devils, capable of allowing one to quickly recover one's vitality and strengthen one's bloodline. In order to save me, Old Du had injured himself heavily. In fact, he had nearly died. The only thing I could do to return his favor was to get him into the blood cocoon stone to recover. I believe he will be fine after he comes out."
"Blood cocoon stone of the blood devils? No wonder," said Xiang Shaoyun in astonishment. "Are the Noxious Blood Gang people the ones trying to kill Big Brother Du?"
The blood cocoon stone was a treasure of the blood devils, who had produced it by exhausting a large amount of blood essence. The stone was capable of allowing one to improve one's bloodline several times over. Xiang Shaoyun did not know how they had gotten the blood cocoon stone, but it would only be beneficial for Du Xuanhao. Right now, he was more curious as to who was the one who had harmed Du Xuanhao.
"I was being hunted by the blood devils after stealing their blood cocoon stone. Old Du was the one who had saved me. Subsequently, we encountered the Noxious Blood Gang, who then tried to rob us, and you saw what happened next," said Han Pojun awkwardly.
"I see," Xiang Shaoyun said in realization. "I am bringing Big Brother Du back to the Bloodsin City. Are you coming?"
Han Pojun hesitated, "Why don't we wait for Old Du to come out of the cocoon before we decide?"
Although he was grateful that Xiang Shaoyun had saved them, he still did not fully trust him. What if this was a ploy to steal the blood cocoon stone?
Xiang Shaoyun could see why Han Pojun was worried. He said, "Do you know Han Qianwei and Han Xuewei?"
"You know my nieces?" Han Pojun frowned.
"They are currently waiting at the third layer's entrance," said Xiang Shaoyun.
Han Pojun stared at Xiang Shaoyun, his eyes fluctuating with emotions while numerous thoughts surfaced in his mind. Have Qianwei and Xuewei been captured by him?
"Alright, I'll go with you," Han Pojun decided after thinking about it for a bit.
After all, if Xiang Shaoyun really wanted to steal the blood cocoon stone, there was no need to give him the time to recover. Instead, Xiang Shaoyun could have killed him directly. Perhaps he had been too suspicious.
After spending another half a day healing up, Han Pojun's condition had improved even further. He then joined Xiang Shaoyun on the trip back to the entrance. Xiang Shaoyun summoned Money and had him carry both the blood cocoon stone and Han Pojun as they traveled. As for himself, he was going to kill some more devils and gather enough contribution points before doing anything else.
When Han Pojun saw what Xiang Shaoyun was doing, he heaved a breath of relief. In their travels, Han Pojun personally witnessed Xiang Shaoyun killing first-stage and second-stage Devil Emperors, and his face was filled with shock at what he saw. He could see that Xiang Shaoyun was only a seventh-stage Skysoar Realm cultivator.
With such a cultivation level, Xiang Shaoyun was able to punch way above his height, killing first-stage and second-stage Devil Emperors with one hit, filling Han Pojun's heart with shock. Han Pojun thought, What kind of a freak is this kid? Why is he so terrifying? He is definitely a War Emperor. No, he's a Super War Emperor! This is a genius rarely seen in even tier-7 organizations and could generally only be seen in tier-8 or tier-9 organizations.
Xiang Shaoyun was too busy to pay attention to what Han Pojun was thinking. Through continuous battles, his strength was growing, and slowly, he reached the late seventh-stage Skysoar Realm. One ought to admit that battling was the fastest way of growing.
By the time they reached the entrance, Xiang Shaoyun had successfully gathered all the contribution points he needed. In recent days, apart from relying on himself to kill devils, he had also been occasionally releasing his Nether Soul Domain to increase his killing speed when stronger Devil Emperors were involved. However, not even Han Pojun noticed him using the Nether Soul Domain.
When Xiang Shaoyun checked his jade plate, he saw that he now had 12,370,000 contribution points. He had considerably exceeded the 10 million contribution points he needed. When they arrived at the entrance, Meng Gansu and the Han Clan sisters were nowhere to be seen.
"Where are they? Have you lied to me?" Han Pojun asked, his face sinking when he noticed that no one was present.
Han Qianwei and Han Xuewei were his nieces, and the two were decently talented in terms of cultivation. Among the third generation members of the Han Clan, the two were considered remarkable talents, and he did not wish to see anything bad happen to them.
"Calm down. Let me search for them," said Xiang Shaoyun calmly. He could sense that Meng Gansu was still alive, so they should be fine. Shortly after, he said, "They are over there. Let's go."
He then flew away. Han Pojun also flew toward the same direction. He had recovered from his injuries and could now move quickly. Not far away, the Han Clan sisters were battling an eighth-stage Devil King. Their opponent was an ice turtle devil that spat clumps of frosty mist without stop, causing the surrounding temperature to drop rapidly to a coldness few could withstand.
With their cooperative technique, the Han Clan sisters attacked repeatedly, sending out numerous ice blades to clash with the clumps of mist, creating a series of sparkling explosions of frost. Both of them were sixth-stage Skysoar Realm cultivators, but when working together, they were able to achieve a difficult feat of evenly matching the eighth-stage Devil King.
As for Meng Gansu, he was standing to the side without any intention to help. By his side was an ice turtle devil corpse. Evidently, the corpse was a Devil Emperor he had killed, and the Devil King was currently serving as a sparring partner for the Han Clan sisters.
Alas, although the sisters were decently powerful, the ice turtle devil's defenses were too powerful. They had not seen any success despite their repeated attacks. After they had exhausted themselves attacking, the ice turtle devil finally attacked, forcing the sisters to retreat repeatedly. Just as the sisters were about to be seriously injured, Meng Gansu moved to help. But someone else made a move before him.
"Evil creature, don't you get too cocky!" a shout thundered as a figure dropped from the sky, landing a kick on the ice turtle devil.
