Volume 20, Chapter 182.2: Boundless Ocean

Huo Yuhao wore a bitter expression as he looked at Electrolux, the Ice Empress, and the Skydream Iceworm. He said, “I’m confused. You guys will have to tell me what happened. I only remember entering deep meditation after I sparred with Ji Juechen. After that, I seemed to think for awhile before I descended into darkness until now.”

The Skydream Iceworm said, “Let Elder Yi tell you. After all, he used to be human too. His words will be clearer to you.”

Electrolux said, “Accurately speaking, your spiritual power underwent a transformation. No one could’ve helped you with that. You could only count on yourself for this. Furthermore, cultivation of one’s spirit and spiritual power is a unique experience. It’s never the same for anyone. That’s why I can only tell you what transformations you’ve experienced.”

“As you can see, your spiritual sea has expanded to the size of an ocean. For such a level of spiritual power, I call it Boundless Ocean. From now on, your spiritual power has reached a level that makes it recyclable, and therefore ceaseless. Although you aren’t at a very high level yet, you’ll experience further advancements. I think we can say that you have reached an important step in your spiritual cultivation.”

“I didn’t really concur with the opinions of the worm, scorpion and Snow Lady in the past. Although I believed that you’d have many opportunities under my guidance, it was still a little late when you started embarking on the right path of cultivation. I started cultivating necromancy when I was five years old, and built a solid foundation for myself. But after this transformation, I can say that becoming a god isn’t a dream with this boundless spiritual foundation. After all, your main martial soul is spiritual-type. All your spiritually based soul skills will be greatly enhanced due to this transformation of your spiritual sea. Look at the sky.” As he spoke, Electrolux pointed his finger at the huge vertical eye.

Huo Yuhao was moved, and he was stunned to realize that he seemed to be looking at himself when he peered at the vertical eye.

“After your spiritual sea transformed, your spirit has also made progress. The second mental sea belonging to the Eye of Destiny has completed its connection with your first mental sea. This means that you can directly tap into your spiritual sea to support the use of the Eye of Destiny in the future. You can even use the Light of Destiny more often. I estimate that it’s around three times a day now, and the restorative abilities of your spiritual power will be around five times stronger. In this way, you can use your spiritual-type soul skills more freely.”

Huo Yuhao was overwhelmed with delight. Although he knew that he would achieve significant advancements after his deep meditation, he didn’t expect it to be so drastic. It was even a little unbelievable. Although the increase was only on the spiritual side of cultivation, and had nothing to do with his soul power, he slowly started to realize that his spiritual and soul powers were just forces presented in different ways. It was just like when he used the Spirit Eyes. If he unleashed more spiritual power, he could conserve soul power. Right now, he felt that he could use his spiritual power as the primary force to activate his spiritual-type soul skills, with his soul power acting as a guide.

Huo Yuhao looked at the Skydream Iceworm with a passionate gaze. “Brother Skydream, thank you.”

The Skydream Iceworm’s chubby body twisted a little, and he said, “Don’t thank me. We’re benefiting from each other. Rather, I should be thanking you. You’ve given me, the Ice Empress, and the Snow Lady hope. The Snow Lady is in a sealed state. To prevent her sealed origin power from leaking, she can’t come out to greet you. But she has conveyed her thoughts—she’s excited at your progress. She also hopes that you’ll soon be strong enough to accept her strength. When that happens, you’ll be truly powerful.”

Huo Yuhao chortled and said, “Brother Skydream, have I absorbed the spiritual power from three of your seals?”

 “Yes!” the Skydream Iceworm replied. “Initially, I thought that one of them would be sufficient, but I didn’t expect your transformation to be so awesome. You depleted two more of them before you achieved this form of stability. It’s no longer up to me when you unseal my spiritual powers in the future. You can decide by yourself. As your abilities increase, your control of the spiritual seas will also increase. This will be very beneficial for your body. But the effects are only substantial at the start. I’m telling you now that the changes won’t be so drastic in the future. However, you’ll definitely need some time to adapt and consolidate your foundation when you leave. Fortunately, you still have the Life Gold. Otherwise, you’d be in trouble.”

Huo Yuhao was puzzled as he asked, “Trouble? What trouble?” 

The Ice Empress said, “As your spiritual sea improves and your cultivation increases, your soul power will also spike. However, your second martial soul is my Ultimate Ice. It increases at a very different speed from the Spirit Eyes, which might cause some heavy burdens on your body. Your soul power will become slightly unstable due to that. You’ll need to cultivate patiently for a period of time after you leave, so that you can consolidate your abilities. But I have some good news for you. That one problem you envisioned earlier has been resolved. We can start whenever you want.”

Huo Yuhao chortled and said, “That’s great. Thanks, Ice Empress.”

Electrolux said, “Alright, it’s time for you to return. You’ve been meditating for a long time. They’re right. Once you leave, you will need some time to adapt and readjust. No matter what condition your body is in, you can’t be impatient. With the immense life power from the Life Gold, a slow recovery is your best choice.”

Huo Yuhao nodded. He lifted his hand to scratch his head and asked, “But how do I leave this boundless spiritual sea?”

Electrolux snapped at him, “This is your spiritual world. You can control everything!”

“Oh, that’s simple!” Huo Yuhao was a little embarrassed as he laughed. After waving to Electrolux, the Ice Empress and the Skydream Iceworm, he opened his eyes.

……

 

It was time to wake up.

Fan Yu sat cross-legged in front of Huo Yuhao. He was getting used to waiting like this after half a year. Every day, he stayed with Huo Yuhao to meditate. At times, He Caitou would replace him. Besides He Caitou, he really couldn’t trust anyone else.

“Oh?” Fan Yu’s gaze flashed as he watched Huo Yuhao. He seems to have moved. Am I seeing things?
