Chapter 946 – Hiding Lei Xiaoyu

Whoosh –

Whoosh –

Figures flew past Qin Yu’s side, darting towards the depths of the snowfield where the pitch black crack was located.

But Qin Yu remained calm and tranquil. He only occasionally glanced at the road before him. His steps were even and measured, without any sense of urgency.

Qin Yu also wanted to step into the Severed Heaven Abyss as soon as possible, but sometimes being faster wasn’t helpful.

The Severed Heaven Abyss was worthy of being a legendary land full of countless dangers. It was mysterious and unpredictable.

Unless they had perceived the world’s Great Dao to an extreme degree, even cultivators that had stepped into the God boundary would never realize that this seemingly ordinary snowfield contained countless variables.

Walking within, even if one thought they were traveling in a straight line, it was possible to take a different path with every step they took.

If people were within a certain fault-tolerance rate, then even if they took the wrong fork in the road they could still move forward, even if at a much slower pace.

But the more mistakes there were, the slower the speed would be. Once one reached a limit, then even if they ran wildly through the snowfield for a hundred years they would never reach the Severed Heaven Abyss.

If one watched from above, they would see that the distance between Qin Yu and the Severed Heaven Abyss was constantly reducing.

As for some of the people who raced past him like galloping horses, they were actually flung far behind his steady steps.

And what was strange was that these cultivators all had excited expressions. They hadn’t sensed anything strange at all.

Qin Yu paused. It wasn’t because he couldn’t see the path before him, but because the witchcraft bug in Lei Xiaoyu’s body was starting to become restless.

Originally Qin Yu only had a faint guess. But now, he was sure that there was a connection between this witchcraft bug and the Severed Heaven Abyss.

If he wanted to be bolder with his guess, then he believed that the witchcraft bug came from there!

If this was true…

A witchcraft bug from the Severed Heaven Abyss had entered Lei Xiaoyu’s body, causing her to suffer pain for the rest of her life. And, she had no choice but to enter the Severed Heaven Abyss to seek out her final hope for living.

It was like samsara. As if from the darkness, an invisible hand was pushing everything along.

Qin Yu propped Lei Xiaoyu up, tightening her to him. He let out a breath of white air and said, “If something like destiny exists in this world, I believe it wouldn’t be so cruel to you. I believe you will obtain a new life here…you have to endure, you cannot give up!”

Pa –

He stepped forward. The snow and ice broke open, leaving behind his footprint.

Then, he vanished from sight.

The world in front of him was instantly stretched to its limits, turning into countless motes of light that connected together. It was like brilliant auroras that flooded his field of vision.

Then, all these brilliant lights contracted inward. From an infinitely extended state, they solidified into existence.

At this time, Qin Yu discovered he had entered the Severed Heaven Abyss with Lei Xiaoyu.

Kacha –

There was a light cracking sound. Qin Yu knew that it was because he had stepped onto some crystal on the ground and cracked it with his arrival. Fear surged up from his heart without warning. Like a boundless wave, it covered his soul.

Without any hesitation, Qin Yu shouted out loud and shot into the skies. He had no idea where he should go, but there was one thing he was sure of – if he stayed on the ground, he was bound to get into deep trouble!

Then, the moment after Qin Yu left, the area where he stepped on the crystal shattered without warning.

It was like an invisible hand had ruthlessly punched the ground, causing everything to collapse and disintegrate.

This sort of collapse opened up a river of destruction. Instead of slowing down and stopping, it continued to spread out, faster and faster.

It was like the world was being destroyed…no, this truly was the world being destroyed!

Dark golden light flashed in Qin Yu’s eyes. After sweeping his eyes around, he took a deep breath. Flesh and bones exploded within his body as his speed accelerated.

Whoosh –

Finally, with a mere hair’s breadth to spare, he crossed through an invisible yet tangible barrier. The feeling of terror and destruction that enveloped his soul soon dissipated.

He turned around and looked backwards. In the distance, a point of light burst into dazzling brilliance like a bright star in the night sky. Then, it disappeared.

Qin Yu had a dignified expression. He knew that if he hadn’t escaped from that world of destruction as soon as he did, then he would have been dragged to his death with that spot of light.

The Severed Heaven Abyss was actually this horrifying!

Taking a deep breath, Qin Yu composed himself. He looked around. Where he was at, the world had basically stabilized. There were mountains, rivers, growing trees, and even some life auras that weren’t too powerful.

Shua –

His figure flickered and he vanished into the horizon.

Five days later.

Qin Yu stood on a mountain summit. He looked up at the great sun in the skies, a contemplative expression on his face.

During this period of time, he had clarified the Severed Heaven Abyss’ state of existence. It was like a mirror that had been shattered into countless fragments on the ground. Every fragment was its own independent small world, and there were some that were small and some that were large.

The larger the world fragment, the more stable the space was. As a result, that fragment could accommodate increasingly powerful life forms. On the other hand, extremely small world fragments, like the place where Qin Yu first landed, were extremely unstable and had a chance of collapsing as soon as any external force was exerted on it.

And more importantly, perhaps because all these countless large and small fragments originated from one body, even if the smallest fragment were to break down it would be driven forward by the rules of destruction.

That is, after the collapse of that world fragment, everything in range of it, no matter what existence it was, would follow the world fragment itself and be destroyed.

Of course, in Qin Yu’s eyes, there should be a corresponding limit.

Once a person’s strength exceeded a certain point, even if the world fragment collapsed then it was impossible to harm them.

Qin Yu had no idea what sort of cultivation was required to disregard the collapse of a world, but he knew he was far from achieving it.

So if he wanted to survive, he needed to choose large-scale, stable world fragments.

Qin Yu had the ability to achieve this.

The jade embryo egg gave him the ability to see the essence of things. While he couldn’t see through the countless world fragments that floated in the Severed Heaven Abyss, finding a relatively safe place to stay for the moment wasn’t difficult.

But for other cultivators…

As he thought about the throngs of people rushing into the Severed Heaven Abyss, Qin Yu’s eyes flashed with pity.

A person knew the worth of their own life. If they only cared about interests and ignored the dangers, they would only end up harming themselves.

Qin Yu put Lei Xiaoyu down and examined her condition. He furrowed his eyebrows together.

As he thought, after coming here, the witchcraft bug became increasingly difficult to suppress. It was sucking more and more strength out of Lei Xiaoyu.

He had less time than he thought. He needed to hurry up. But, hurrying also meant there would be many more unknown dangers.

Qin Yu might be able to resist it. But Lei Xiaoyu…

He sat by her side and looked at her for a long time. Then, he let out a long breath.

He needed to find a safe place to secure her. He couldn’t keep her at his side.

But in the Severed Heaven Abyss, what place was safe? As for whether or not he could find one, he didn’t have any faith at all.

Whatever. He shouldn’t think about it too much!

He lifted Lei Xiaoyu back up. Then, he leapt down, vanishing after a few jumps.

Three days later, he arrived in the 11th world fragment. Qin Yu’s eyes brightened. He could feel the aura of an incomparably stable world. It seemed that there was a very large world fragment not too far away.

He flicked his sleeves. Space twisted, imprisoning the vines that came soaring his way. Then, he moved in the direction he sensed.

When he left, the twisted space vanished and the vines had their freedom restored. They continued to chase after Qin Yu but had no choice but to stop after a while.

Qin Yu didn’t destroy them because he knew that these things were endless. The more he killed, the more would show up, so it was better to conserve strength.

Four hours later, Qin Yu stopped. He had reached the edge of the world fragment. He looked up to see flashing lights like stars in the skies.

Each mote of light represented a world fragment. If he hadn’t personally experienced this, he would have found it hard to believe.

The reason was simple…

Every spot of light was a world fragment and they came in a variety of sizes. But no matter how large or small they were, once they were joined together they formed an inconceivably large area.

Just what sort of terrifying strength was needed to break a giant world into its current state?

And what Qin Yu was trying to do was to find the stable world fragment he felt.

For other cultivators, this was no different from finding a specific grain of sand on a beach. But Qin Yu only needed to use up a bit of time.

Soon, he discovered things weren’t as simple as they seemed. He could sense the aura of the world fragment but couldn’t accurately lock onto its location.

The dark golden light in his eyes grew increasingly thick. Then, he closed his eyes, allowing the bitter feeling to flow through them. He smiled.

Even if he used all his strength he still found it difficult to find. If so, the chances of other cultivators finding it were next to zero. And, it was extremely large and stable.

In other words, as long as he managed to enter the world fragment he could hide Lei Xiaoyu in it. There would be no problems with her safety.

Taking a step, Qin Yu stepped out of the world fragment and entered a spatial channel. Moments later he arrived in another world fragment.

He glanced around and knew this wasn’t the place. He turned around and stepped into another spatial channel.

The reason he did this was because even at the end, he couldn’t accurately lock onto the aura of that world fragment. He could only narrow it down to a certain scope.

After the 43rd attempt, the moment he entered the spatial channel, he knew he had chosen correctly.

Compared to before, the speed of transmission through this spatial channel was much slower. After several breaths of time his field of vision brightened.

A cry came from above his head. He looked up and his pupils shrank.
