Volume 20, Chapter 182.1: Boundless Ocean

Xuan Ziwen was much better off than Fan Yu. When he was tired, he could return to rest or eat, but Fan Yu couldn’t. To ensure Huo Yuhao’s absolute safety, he remained at his side at all times. He slept and ate there. Only occasionally did he allow He Caitou or the rest of Shrek’s students to help him keep watch so that he could settle some personal matters.

Since he was from Shrek Academy, Fan Yu was even more aware of what deep meditation meant. That was why he wasn’t anxious at the start. The circulation of blood and bodily functions would decrease significantly as a soul master entered deep meditation. It was even possible for the meditation to last for a month. Such situations had occurred many times in Shrek Academy’s inner courtyard. The longer the period of deep meditation, the more beneficial it was to a soul master.

However, Fan Yu was a little unsettled when one month passed and Huo Yuhao was still in his deep meditation.

The injury to Huo Yuhao’s right arm had already long since recovered. When a layer of thin ice fell off from it, all his wounds were healed, and no scars remained.

However, Huo Yuhao’s body became a more cold and stiff as time passed. His soul power circulation, breathing and heartbeat were almost undetectable.

Has he lost control? Fan Yu was worried. Because of this matter, he quickly wrote a letter addressed to Elder Xuan and instructed Ye Xiaosheng to rush back to Shrek Academy using a flying-type soul tool to deliver it. In his letter, he detailed the entire process of how Huo Yuhao entered this state.

After that, Elder Xuan came…

However, he didn’t alert the Sun Moon Imperial Soul Engineering Academy with his arrival. He snuck in silently in the dead of night. It was easy for him to escape detection since he was a Rank 98 Transcendent Douluo.

After inspecting Huo Yuhao’s body, Elder Xuan was surprised as he told Fan Yu, “He’s fine, but the level of his deep meditation is very shocking… I’m afraid he’ll need a lot more time before it ends.” Elder Xuan had seen something similar with Elder Mu before. He instructed Fan Yu to watch Huo Yuhao carefully. This deep meditation was bound to be beneficial towards Huo Yuhao’s future.

To avoid eliciting undue trouble, Elder Xuan quickly returned to Shrek Academy after inspecting Huo Yuhao. Fan Yu continued to wait—for six whole months.

……

Darkness. Everything was covered in darkness.

A spot of golden light suddenly appeared within the darkness, bringing a precious glow into frame.

The golden light spread, and the entire world seemed to be illuminated. The golden light slowly formed a shape of a ball.

It was a golden sun, but it was on its last remaining twilight. After the brightest light shone forth, the golden glow started to diminish rapidly.

However, the entire world seemed to have been lit up by its golden light, and started to coruscate with bright lights.

It was a sea, an extremely vast sea. The color of the seawater was a dim gold. The gentle light moved with a rhythm that complemented the ripples of the water’s surface, which sparkled.

The sun suddenly detonated and became a ball of fireworks, erupting in the sky. However, the sky didn’t become any dimmer because of this. A huge golden, vertical eye replaced it and watched over the sea in its place. A sovereign-like aura instantly calmed the entire sea.

Someone slowly drifted up to the calm water’s surface.

It was a naked youth. His skin was completely golden. When he appeared, the vertical eye in the sky shone with a golden light. This light gently lifted his body from the water’s surface.

This person slowly stood straight while covered in the light emitted from the vertical eye. He slowly opened his eyes.

When he opened his eyes, the boundless golden ocean dimmed slightly, whereas the brightest light in the world shone before him.

“Where, where is this…?” He exclaimed in puzzlement.

“This is your spiritual sea.” A figure appeared. He appeared out of nowhere in front of this youth, like teleportation. He was Electrolux. And the youth shining with golden light was naturally Huo Yuhao.

Huo Yuhao was still in a trance. “Spiritual sea? My spiritual sea? But this is a real sea!”

His memories were restored quickly, however, he couldn’t help but cry out in confusion. Initially, his spiritual sea was only like a small pond. This small pond had, over time, grown to around the size of a lake.

At this point, his spiritual sea really and truly resembled a sea.

Electrolux smiled as he said, “You should thank the big worm. When your spiritual sea increased a level, he provided you with sufficient, pure spiritual power. That allowed your spiritual power to transform smoothly.” 

“Brother Skydream? Where is he?”

The Skydream Iceworm’s lazy voice sounded. “Ugh… I used to be the one sleeping comfortably. But I’ve been watching you sleep comfortably all this time while I couldn't sleep.”

A huge figure, almost a hundred meters in length surfaced from the seawater. His polished body squirmed a little before he floated into the air. He was like a small mountain, and there were seven golden rings of light on his body.

“Brother Skydream.” Huo Yuhao was surprised. His mind fluttered a little before he appeared in front of the Skydream Iceworm.

Skydream squirmed a little and said, “Don’t fawn over me, I’m embarrassed.”

An indignant voice sounded after that. “Bullshit, you’re so thick-skinned. How could you possibly be embarrassed?” Another huge figure surfaced from the seawater.

Diamond ice crystals and an azure-green tail. It was the Ice Empress.

At this point, the Ice Empress’ body length had also increased, by about thirty meters. Her huge pincers were on display, and she had a majestic aura. However, her appearance didn’t cause a huge uproar in Huo Yuhao’s spiritual sea.

Huo Yuhao was surprised as he asked, “Ice Empress, Brother Skydream, when did your bodies get so big?” 

The Skydream Iceworm chortled and said, “When your spiritual sea transformed, which allowed the strength we can unleash here to increase.”
