Chapter 1311: Scattered

The ‘corpse explosion’ was equivalent to the self-destruction of an Early-stage Soul Saint. Needless to say, the explosion of an Early-stage Soul Saint would be devastating. The destructive power of the self-destruction engulfed Bai Yunfei and the others at once since they had been close to the epicenter. 

In fact, the beginning force was already threatening to break Bai Yunfei’s barrier. It was only with his best effort that Bai Yunfei managed to stop the energy just half an inch away from his person. But even that effort was consuming too much of Bai Yunfei’s reserves. Already half of his soulforce was gone just from protecting himself for this long!

If this went on, Bai Yunfei wouldn’t be able to survive for ten seconds even!

It was only the beginning, but the destructive force of the corpse explosion was incredibly powerful. If nothing were to be done, then Bai Yunfei would be done for!

The safest thing to do in this moment was to use the Core Stone. If he could hide in the Core World, Bai Yunfei would be able to send the Core Stone into a crack in space and away from this place. But that meant they’d reappear somewhere else in the world, or in other words, a place that wasn’t the pocket dimension with the Supreme Saint’s Inheritance. They’d have to leave this place then!

This was definitely the safest choice, but what about the best choice? What if there was something else here that could be done?

If it was possible, Bai Yunfei didn’t want to resort to using the Core Stone. Even if he did, then he’d want ot bring everyone else with him.

Thinking hard, Bai Yunfei summoned the Cataclysmic Seal to him. A barrier was immediately erected when it appeared, allowing Bai Yunfei some reprieve. The consumption of soulforce wasn’t much better when it came to the barrier, but it was better than directly managing a barrier himself.

Now that he had a moment to calm down, Bai Yunfei scanned the surrounding nearby and immediately took notice of Jing Mingfeng!

It was hard to see much due to the explosion, but Bai Yunfei could at the very least make out Jing Mingfeng’s situation. The man wasn’t as strong as Bai Yunfei and didn’t have any powerful defensive soul armament like the Cataclysmic Seal, but he was still the inheritor of the Wind Saint’s inheritance, he had a few tricks up his sleeves. Currently, he was weathering the storm with a green rhombus-shaped barrier, but not for long. The barrier was looking as if it was ready to break.

And if that happened, then Jing Mingfeng would be in dire straits.

Seeing his perils, Bai Yunfei immediately took off toward his direction to reach him.

But then… 

“Bzzz…”

A tremor ran through the pocket dimension, one with unprecedented strength. It was such a powerful tremor that even the explosive black energy from the corpse explosion was being affected!

“What’s going on now!?”

Bai Yunfei cried out as he tried to analyze the situation. He could feel the surrounding space tremble a bit before the force of the explosion…was reduced by half!

“What?”

He was pleasantly surprised by that. He didn’t know why, but Bai Yunfei wasn’t one to look a gift horse in the mouth. Exerting even more energy, he continued onward to Jing Mingfeng.

“Whoosh!”

Bai Yunfei was halfway to Jing Mingfeng when he suddenly felt his vision blur. An indescribable sensation attacked his senses and forced him to a stop. When his vision cleared up… 

He was still surrounded by the same chaotic space like before. But unlike before, the explosion was nowhere to be seen, and neither was Jing Mingfeng. Everything else was…gone!

Bai Yunfei was the only person here!

“What’s…what’s going on?!”

Bai Yunfei was on high alert at once. His soulsense spread everywhere in an attempt to see if he could sense anything, but nothing came up. There was actually nothing else but him here!

“The change in the spatial energy was a little strange, but it was also a little similar, just like…”

“Yunfei, this is a spatial fold! You going into the fold teleported you to somewhere else!”

The spirit of the Core Stone spoke into Bai Yunfei’s mind.

“A spatial fold?!” Bai Yunfei’s eyes rose up, “Ah! Yeah, a spatial fold! It makes sense now!”

Bai Yunfei grew alert at the Core Stone’s warning. This ‘familiar’ sensation now made sense to him—he remembered where he had this sensation before. Back on that foggy mountain for the Extreme King Pills, the walls to the maze were all spatial folds!

“I see now…because of the corpse explosion, the energy managed to bring about a change in the spatial energy to a degree the Saint of Fate never would’ve thought of…” Bai Yunfei wondered, “The pocket dimension was able to weaken the explosion, but it brought about a big enough change in the spatial energy to form spatial folds, and I coincidentally walked through one to get here…”

He heaved a sigh of relief. “That’s pretty fortunate then! I didn’t think such a thing would be able to happen…it’s possible the others will be fine then. We all might’ve been whisked away to a new part of the pocket dimension, maybe…

“Gu Jimie and the others are probably facing something similar,” He sighed again. “An unexpected situation became resolved in an unexpected way. It’s not too bad though, I’m sure I’ll be able to join with the others again…”

Bai Yunfei nodded. The situation was beyond his element now, but it was at least somewhat decent. If everyone else really was teleported away like he was, then it’d be possible for anyone to meet up with anyone, whether it was friend or foe.

For example, if Shen Pojun and the Frostfeather Saint were to meet up together, it’d be possible to come across either Shangguan Xiongyan or Gu Jimie alone. It’d be an easy way for their side to get rid of their enemies. 

But the inverse was also true for the other side… 

The only consolation he had was that he most likely had a better idea on the situation than their enemies. This meant they had the advantage of being able to gather together faster, hopefully.

That was when Bai Yunfei suddenly thought of a place—the end of this pocket dimension had the final ‘door’!

If the others were to realize they were all teleported, then they’d try to work their way toward the end of the dimension as quickly as possible!

Eyes scanning the area, Bai Yunfei familiarized himself with his immediate surroundings. But he wasn’t able to see much. All he could see was the ‘constant’ flow of the black light in the surrounding place. The Saint of Fate once experimented in this place and made remarks of it in his Rune, but the one that was most familiar with the inner workings of this dimension was Li Chengfeng, not Bai Yunfei. It’d be great if Li Chengfeng was here to make sense of this place and navigate, but he was not. Fortunately, Bai Yunfei once saw the image due to the mental link he had and was able to remember a few vital points of information.

“That way!!”

Bai Yunfei’s eyes lit up after ten minutes of careful observation of his environment.

……

Just as Bai Yunfei expected, everyone else was dealing with a similar situation.

When Gu Lianhun’s corpse exploded, spatial folds opened up everywhere with the purpose of diverting away the explosion. As a result, everyone there was unintentionally transported elsewhere within the dimension.

“How…fortunate that there was such a reaction in such a manner…”

Shen Pojun was relieved. “We may be scattered, but we have a chance of survival now. As risky as it is to come across an enemy, it’s best to regroup with the others as soon as possible.”

With that being said, Shen Pojun summoned his three soul armaments to hover protectively around him before he sat down to recover his soulforce.

Somewhere else, the Frostfeather Saint was doing the exact same thing he was doing… 

Incidentally, Li Chengfeng and Jing Mingfeng had both decided on trying to find the end of hte pocket dimension to regroup with the others… 

……

Meanwhile, in another part of the dimension.

“I hadn’t thought there’d be such an action. That Shen Pojun must still be alive then…”

It was a stormy Shangguan Xiongyan that grumbled to himself. Like the others, he was transported to another part of the dimension and had realized the meaning behind it. He was unhappy that the two Saints might still be alive, but then a happy thought occurred to him!

“If…everyone else was split apart because of the folds…then it’s possible Bai Yunfei is by himself!!”

At the thought, Shangguan Xiongyan pulled out the copper mirror at once!
