Nie Tian returned to the first of the Nine Star Heavens.
Chu Rui and the others were also on this level, staring nervously at Gupi.
When its liquid form was only 500 meters from Ji Yuanquan, it suddenly stopped.
Spatial rifts opened around Ji Yuanquan, brilliantly connecting to different domains. Through them, people could arrive at another domain in a flash. He was ready to leave at any moment.
Nie Tian looked closely at Gupi.
At first glance, it looked like a colorful marsh made up of bright colorful areas. The multi-colored marsh was sticky and liquid, and constituted Gupi’s body.
The colors actually made people feel it had a kind of weird beauty.
Among them, hair-thin tentacles came out of the colorful marsh and pierced Jiang Yuanchi’s eyes, nostrils and ears.
Jiang Yuanchi floated above the colorful marsh, and was surrounded by dense miasma.
From the First Heaven, Nie Tian perceived with his soul awareness. He could see that the tentacles shone brightly with mysterious soul energy.
Jiang Yuanchi was clearly under the full control of Gupi.
“You, are from the Void Spirit Society, and practice the power of space...”
Jiang Yuanchi opened his mouth, but his words were jumbled, and sounded uncomfortable.
Hearing that, everyone was immediately certain that it was by no means Jiang Yuanchi.
With a closer look, Nie Tian found that Jiang Yuanchi had swellings on his face, body and exposed skin.
The swellings were also colorful, with slimy venom.
He didn’t know what Jiang Yuanchi used to look like, but now his skin was covered with swellings, which made his appearance extremely ugly and ferocious.
Perhaps this was why he had refused to show his real face, hiding himself forever in his shadow domain.
On the one hand, he looked ugly.
On the other hand, maybe he was afraid that others would know that he had been controlled by Gupi, and that he had failed to permanently imprison this strange creature of the fiends.
“I’m Ji Yuanquan of the Void Spirit Society!” Ji Yuanquan announced his name in a deep tone, and shouted with cold, sharp eyes, “You must be Gupi! So you’ve erased Jiang Yuanchi’s soul? Why did you control him to come after breaking free from his sealing spell?”
“The human world will always belong to humans. Don’t imagine that you can do anything you like here!”
Jiang Yuanchi opened his mouth, with a dull face. “Of course I’m not Jiang Yuanchi.”
His eyes were very strange, with mockery, disdain, and little human emotion.
His facial expressions were gradually enriched, as if he were rapidly adapting to Jiang Yuanchi’s body, and speaking like him.
“What do you want?” Ji Yuanquan shouted.
Gupi was intelligent. Since it was controlling Jiang Yuanchi and communicating with other humans in his form, it must be trying to inform them of its intentions.
That was also what Ji Yuanquan wanted to learn!
The sticky liquid in the colorful marsh condensed into a weird hand, which wanted to give Ji Yuanquan a whipping.
Nie Tian saw this scene clearly. The weird hand formed almost instantly. It was greasy, with numerous thorns and poisonous smoke, and instantly closed in on Ji Yuanquan.
Ji Yuanquan snorted, and slipped into a spatial rift like a loach.
Persistently, the weird hand extended to the spatial rift, which was still open, but was suddenly cut by the space blades left inside by Ji Yuanquan.
The weird hand broke into pieces, flew out of the spatial rift, and immediately reformed as an unharmed hand.
Ji Yuanquan reappeared like a ghost, coming out of another spatial rift.
Behind him was the spatial rift, through which he could disappear again in a second.
“Gupi, don’t waste your time. I can’t do anything about you, but you can’t kill me, either,” Ji Yuanquan said with a cold smile. “There are thousands of races and creatures in the world who all know the accepted truth that those who are proficient in spatial power are extremely difficult to kill.”
The nimble weird hand that was released by Gupi slithered, but didn’t attack him again.
Jiang Yuanchi, who was possessed by Gupi, started to move slowly.
It came to the forefront of the colorful marsh, facing Ji Yuanquan and the Nine Star Heavens. All of a sudden, its blank, empty eyes stared at Nie Tian.
To be exact, it was staring at the ancient talisman, which was in an illusory state in front of Nie Tian.
Gupi’s eyes seemed to form a suction force, and the talisman became restless.
Nie Tian paled.
In the Nine Star Heavens, the Illusory Ancient Talisman, which was driven by his soul and able to change positions obeying his mind, actually wanted to uncontrollably fly to Gupi and out of the first of the Nine Star Heavens.
Seeing the Illusory Ancient Talisman move, Chu Rui, Wei Lai, Yan Zhan and the others dared not touch or stop it.
They were afraid of being poisoned!
“Nie Tian!” Ji Yuanquan roared as he saw the Illusory Ancient Talisman flying out of the First Heaven.
But Nie Tian stood still in the first level, with a grave expression.
Sparks of electricity sputtered from the corners of his eye. Apparently, he was using strands of soul power, trying to hold onto the Illusory Ancient Talisman so that it wouldn’t be controlled by the Gupi.
Unfortunately, all his efforts were in vain.
As the Illusory Ancient Talisman floated past Ji Yuanquan, it slowed down.
But Ji Yuanquan was motionless, and dared not to stretch out his hand to freeze the Illusory Ancient Talisman.
Gupi let out a strange snort, as if to laugh at his timidity.
Ji Yuanquan’s face flushed.
He had seen that there was essence of miasma inside the Illusory Ancient Talisman. The miasma essence was a colorful liquid. If the talisman exploded and the miasma was let out, he…
He knew for a fact that even the domains of God domain experts would corrupt and melt once touched by Gupi’s miasma essence.
The Illusory Ancient Talisman abruptly quickened as it passed him.
Nie Tian felt a pain in his head.
At that moment, he suddenly realized that the connection between him and the Illusory Ancient Talisman, which was also a trace of his soul awareness that he had left behind, seemed to be snuffed out.
At the same time, it seemed that a numb powerless feeling intended to intrude on his mind.
Strands of power flew out from the Spirit Pearl. As soon as they entered his mind, they morphed into tens of thousands of divine Phantasm characters, and formed an unknown talisman in the depths of his sea of soul awareness.
It seemed the talisman could suppress, govern, and annihilate all spirits, and seal all souls.
Nie Tian felt numb and powerless. However, the strange feeling of his soul being corroded was erased before it could burst out.
In the colorful marsh, the eyes of the Gupi-possessed Jiang Yuanchi glowed with colorful light, watching Nie Tian quietly.
His colorful eyes were full of astonishment, and extremely obscure mumbling which wasn’t in the human language came out of its mouth.
It seemed to be wondering why Nie Tian’s sea of soul awareness could dissolve the soul awareness and toxins it had implanted.
Several tiny tentacles were separated from the tentacles that had penetrated into the corners of Jiang Yuanchi’s eyes, and pricked into the Illusory Ancient Talisman.
They pricked the Illusory Ancient Talisman, like steel needles.
To its surprise, after entering the Illusory Ancient Talisman, the tentacles dissolved, became part of the colorful, poisonous liquid essence, and were sealed inside; they couldn’t be withdrawn anymore.
Its sense of touch and soul awareness was gone.
The colorful light in the eyes of Gupi in Jiang Yuanchi’s body grew brighter. It stared blankly at the Illusory Ancient Talisman, clearly with a hint of fear.
“Nie Tian! Perhaps that strange Illusory Ancient Talisman can seal Gupi!” Ji Yuanquan shouted.
