Dou Tianchen’s face turned pale.
His current cultivation base allowed him to communicate with Vice Sectmaster Chu Rui with the help of his Star Medallion.
He had sent the message.
That opening spatial rift had been for Chu Rui to arrive with the help of Void Spirit Society disciples.
However, Grand Monarch Primal Wood only gave the spatial rift a look, and it was instantly and mercilessly destroyed.
He beckoned to Nie Tian. “Come with me. I need to talk to you.”
All of a sudden, the wood domain that Nie Tian had displayed flew uncontrollably towards Grand Monarch Primal Wood.
Zu Guangyao’s and Dou Tianchen’s expressions changed as they shouted, “Nie Tian!”
Nie Tian was shocked. Then he took a closer look and noticed that although his wood domain had been attracted by Grand Monarch Primal Wood, the wood power he had previously consumed was being replenished very quickly.
At the same time, wisps of the Heaven-equal Vine’s unique aura appeared.
In a trance, Nie Tian seemed to see the Heaven-equal Vine send him a reassuring message in some mysterious way.
He had been nervous, but now, all of a sudden, he calmed down and shouted towards Zu Guangyao, Dou Tianchen, and the others, “Don’t worry. I’ll be back soon.”
After that, he sped up and flew away.
Grand Monarch Primal Wood of the Floragrims chuckled and morphed into a green lightning bolt that covered thousands of miles in a split second, leaving all the disciples of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace far behind.
Only Nie Tian could match his speed, following the flesh aura power he had deliberately left behind.
After only an hour, Nie Tian and Grand Monarch Primal Wood both disappeared completely.
Only then did the spatial rift that had been previously sealed split open.
Pei Qiqi jumped out of it with Chu Rui.
Her sharp eyes searched the surrounding sea of stars as she asked, “Who did that? Was that Grand Monarch Primal Wood? The power he released forcibly changed the rules of space. Even with my Space Boundaries Crystal, I couldn’t open a rift and get here.”
All the elders and Qi warriors of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace then quickly explained what had happened, and why they were so anxious.
“Greetings, Vice Sectmaster.”
“Vice sectmaster, Grand Monarch Primal Wood of the Floragrims suddenly appeared. Then, after Grand Monarch Blood Axe and Grand Monarch Withered Bones left, he wanted to talk to Nie Tian alone.”
“We’re afraid that Nie Tian will be imprisoned by Grand Monarch Primal Wood.”
Chu Rui waved his hand to silence them. “Enough. How long have they been gone?”
“Half an hour,” Wang Meijia answered.
“Miss Pei, can you locate Grand Monarch Primal Wood and Nie Tian?” Chu Rui asked with a solemn face. “Grand Monarch Primal Wood of the Floragrims was one of the organizers of this invasion. Originally, the titans, Ancientbeasts, and dragons of the Ancientspirits were hesitant. It was him who persuaded the Ancientspirits to set aside their prejudices against the Demons, Phantasms, and Bonebrutes, and join hands with them to sweep across the Dead Star Sea and invade the Realm of Remote Heaven.”
Pei Qiqi then said with a cold face, “Not long ago, Fata of the Floragrims went to the Seven-star Realm Sea, and then the Domain of Flame’s End. He wanted to...”
She explained Fata’s request in detail.
The elders and Son of the Stars present were all shocked.
Most of them didn’t know that the Ancientspirits and outsiders’ crazy invasion was actually caused by the fact that many realms in the Spirit World were perishing.
Hearing her words, Chu Rui mused for a moment, and then said, “Fata’s proposal may be sincere, but it’s hard to determine Grand Monarch Primal Wood’s attitude. I’ve long heard of Fata of the Floragrims. His father is the current chief of the Floragrims, Grand Monarch Life Wood.
“It’s said that the relationship between Grand Monarch Life Wood and Grand Monarch Primal Wood isn’t harmonious.
“Grand Monarch Life Wood has always loved peace. In the years when he led the Floragrims, they rarely joined interracial wars. But Grand Monarch Primal Wood is a radical in the Floragrims, and often had conflicts with Grand Monarch Life Wood.”
“I believe that if Grand Monarch Life Wood weren’t away from his post, he would have considered asking the humans for suitable realms as Fata suggested, even if the realms of the Floragrims are perishing one by one. But Grand Monarch Primal Wood didn’t do that. Instead, he traveled around to persuade the Ancientspirits to join forces with the Demons, Phantasms, and Bonebrutes to invade our world.”
Pei Qiqi’s eyes grew cold. “So Grand Monarch Primal Wood of the Floragrims played a very important role in persuading the Ancientspirits and outsiders to set aside their prejudices.”
Chu Rui nodded. “When you went to the Seven-star Realm Sea and Domain of Flame’s End, Grand Monarch Primal Wood attacked and wounded Xu Guangyu of your sect.”
Pei Qiqi instantly made her decision. “I’ll go find Nie Tian.”
Before Chu Rui and others could try to persuade her, she turned her Space Boundaries Crystal and flew away in the direction Dou Tianchen had told her, giving rise to a loud whoosh.
“I’ll go with her. You stay here and hold our defenses,” said Chu Rui.
In an unknown dead realm of the Domain of Heaven Span.
Glowing green shields sealed up this dead realm tightly.
Nie Tian, who was chasing Grand Monarch Primal Wood, found that the dead realm in front of him had suddenly disappeared. It was even difficult for his soul to perceive it.
However, his bloodline could still perceive extraordinarily exuberant flesh power in the seemingly empty area ahead.
That was Grand Monarch Primal Wood’s flesh aura sea!
It was very easy for grand monarchs like Grand Monarch Primal Wood to envelop a dead domain with their flesh aura sea to prevent anyone from detecting it.
“He sealed the realm with his flesh aura sea, so that even if others track us here, it’ll be difficult for them to find us because they won’t be able to see it, and their souls can’t perceive it,” Nie Tian thought.
Looking at the emptiness in his field of vision that was in fact an area that had been covered up and hidden, Nie Tian was a little hesitant, as he wasn’t sure whether he should go into it, following Grand Monarch Primal Wood.
“Come on in.” Grand Monarch Primal Wood’s soul invited. “What? Are you scared, Nie Tian?”
Nie Tian smiled noncommittally and flew into it.
In the next second, the dead realm that had been hidden by Grand Monarch Primal Wood’s flesh aura sea appeared before his eyes.
“Originally, these branches weren’t very special. What makes them so sharp and able to pierce Grand Monarch Blood Axe’s body is the pattern of the Tree of Life within them.” As Grand Monarch Primal Wood spoke, his finger moved, and a green branch flew out of Nie Tian’s wood domain.
He held the branch between his fingers.
Wisps of green light flew out of his fingers into the branches. He narrowed his eyes slightly, as if he were using his soul to comprehend the mystery of the patterns of the Tree of Life in the branches.
“This is the power contained in the patterns of our race’s Tree of Life indeed.”
He nodded slowly. “When the Heaven-equal Vine returned to our territory, it mentioned you. It said a lot about you, your bloodline and the Heavenly Wood Heal you have cultivated, and the fact that you can establish the Wood Thriving Formation with the help of these branches. But they’re all our secret magics.”
His eyes suddenly lit up like two green lanterns.
A kind of mysterious soul awareness that could see through minds permeated Nie Tian’s body and sea of soul awareness, as if he wanted to see through Nie Tian. “I need to find out why you’re capable of these things before we can talk.”
