Star Odyssey - Chapter 1597
Lu Yin’s eyes flickered.
“Everyone in every part of Bizarre Sect was kneeling and worshiping that sun. At first, we did our best to approach the sun, but we were never able to get close to it. As the years have passed, we’ve managed to determine that the sun is the most valuable treasure here, and it is likely completely invaluable. As for why we’ve never been able to get close to the sun, it’s because it possesses some aspect of spatial properties,” Starfox said.
Lu Yin frowned. The most amazing concepts in the universe were space and time. His own die had the power of Timestop, and that alone had allowed Lu Yin to reach his current level, while also saving his life countless times. Lu Yin had once watched as Long Tian had grabbed space with his innate gift, and doing so had caused Bai Shaohong and others with the incorrect perception that Long Tian’s innate gift was related to space, which had left them all jealous.
Anything that had a connection to the laws of space or time, whether an innate gift, battle techniques, cultivation arts, or natural treasures, would be able to ignite the entire universe into moving and racing to take it.
It was no wonder that Starfox and the others were unwilling to leave the planet; there was a strange treasure related to the law of space sitting right before their eyes. No one would want to abandon such a thing.
You weren’t able to get close despite everything you’ve tried?” Lu Yin asked.
Starfox replied, “While this pocket space is only so big, it’s impossible to approach the black sun.”
Lu Yin put on his bodysuit armor directly. He did not fully believe the two assassins, so he leapt off the ground, tore through the void, and shot towards the black sun.
Black Mask made no move to stop Lu Yin, as neither of the assassins believed that Lu Yin would be able to accomplish anything at all.
Lu Yin tore back out of void and reappeared. He was not far away from the black sun, so he re-entered the void and continued on his way. Then, while still some distance away, he entered the true universe to keep approaching the sun. Finally, he did not tear through the void or space, and just flew towards the black sun that remained off in the distance.
He was able to see the end of the pocket space, but could not approach the black sun.
This defied common sense; either the black sun was further away that it appeared, or it was a fake.
However, how long could a fake star last? Every part of the Bizarre Sect had aged and faded, but according to Starfox, they had seen that everyone in Bizarre Sect had been bowed to the black sun, which suggested that it should not be fake.
Lu Yin continued his attempts.
Down below, the two assassins watched Lu Yin’s movements in the sky. While he seemed to be moving towards the black sun, the truth was that he never moved much at all.
It was a strange scene that gave them chills, but it also cheered them up. They became increasingly convinced that the black sun possessed some aspect of space, for without such a power, how could someone like Lu Yin who could go head-to-head with Envoys fail to approach the sun even when traveling through the true universe?
Half a day passed, and yet Lu Yin was still unable to get close to the black sun. His efforts were futile, and there was no way to succeed as he was, but was there some other way?
He immediately thought of the Stonewall Scriptures. What would happen if he recited it?
However, this time nothing happened, and it turned out to be useless to recite the Stonewall Scriptures. He was still unable to approach the black sun.
However, the more difficult it was to succeed, the more determined Lu Yin became. He wanted to see what was at the black sun, so he intended to use everything at his disposal: the Yu Secret Art, his domain, battle force, the Teleportation Formation, and even Truesight. Nothing worked, and he was still unable to approach the sun.
Suddenly, something trembled within his body. Lu Yin ducked his head and placed a hand over his heart in shock; it had been a reaction from the black and white mist!. He had merely accidentally touched the black and white mist, but there had been a reaction. He looked back up at the black sun. It was bigger, which meant that he had moved closer.
Lu Yin’s eyes blazed; did this mean he could approach?
He shifted aside his fatesand, and the black and white fog roiled as death energy leaked from his body. Once again, he suddenly found himself closer to the black sun, and Lu Yin was vaguely able to see that a bit of black had stretched out from the sun to connect with him.
Lu Yin stared at the black sun. Could it be that it was death energy? Could that entire black sun be death energy?
Down below, Black Mask and Starfox were both completely flabbergasted as they watched Lu Yin slowly approach the black sun. How was he doing it?
Starfox’s pupils fluctuated. “That’s impossible! We tried everything over the years and always failed.”
“He’s getting closer. It’s his,” Black Mask bitterly observed.
Neither of the old assassins even considered trying to steal the black sun from Lu Yin. First of all, it was impossible. On top of that, there were those Envoys Liu Ye and Fei Hua waiting outside.
Even though Lu Yin was approaching the black sun, he was doing so very slowly. Still, regardless of his speed, he was still making progress.
His God of Death Transformation used the black and white fog within his body, but he had used too much of it during the last battle of ZENITH. He had later relied on Crown Prince Gui Qian’s death energy in the Perennial World, which had been the only way that Lu Yin had managed to succeed.
If the black sun truly was death energy, it would provide an incredible boost to the black and white mist within Lu Yin’s heart.
However, how could there be death energy in this place? What did this Bizarre Sect have to do with the God of Death?
Lu Yin remembered the God of Death Domain that Xiao Shi had mentioned; could that be what the black sun was?
Lu Yin had no idea how much time passed. It might have been a long time, or almost none at all, but he found himself very close to the black sun. It was ten times bigger than it had appeared at first, which was ample proof that he was getting closer and closer to it.
Black Mask and Star Fox also tried to approach the sun, but they ended up with the same results as ever; failure.
The death energy leaking from the black sun became more and more noticeable, and soon Black Mask and Starfox were able to see that a black gas connected Lu Yin to the sun. They both grew nervous, as they had no idea what would happen.
The death energy entered Lu Yin’s body, and he continued to absorb it. It replenished the black and white mist in his heart.
From down below, it was obvious that there was a black line that connected Lu Yin to the black sun, though Lu Yin continued to move closer and closer to it.
The black line was death energy, and the connection grew thicker and bigger. Finally, it looked like a river that crossed the sky.
Even though Lu Yin continued moving closer to the black sun, he was still a long ways away, and the distance made the black river connecting him to the sun even more magnificent looking.
As he absorbed more and more death energy, and the black and white mist inside his body became more and more condensed. Lu Yin’s eyes gradually turned pitch black. Death energy twined about his body, looking like chains. He looked like a god of death.
Suddenly, Lu Yin started quickly dropping back towards the ground, moving further and further away from the black sun. The stream of death energy leaking from the sun also grew thinner and thinner before finally breaking off and retracting to the sun.
Lu Yin slammed into the ground with a loud bang. His impact created a gust of wind that swept out, and it reduced all of the buildings from the Bizarre Sect to dust.
The two assassins felt the destruction was regretful, but there was nothing they could do about it. They looked at Lu Yin and felt the overbearing aura he exuded. What they felt from him caused them to feel panic and terror that rose up from the bottom of their hearts.
Lu Yin turned his back to the two men. His breathing fluctuated from quick to slow, but it gradually stabilized and his eyes slowly returned to normal.
He looked up, afraid. That had been dangerous, and he had almost lost consciousness. Death energy was able to cause people to lose their sanity, and Lu Yin could not allow himself to absorb too much.
Despite all that he had absorbed, he had never actually gotten anywhere close to the black sun. If he had actually entered the sun, he believed that he would become nothing more than a puppet to death energy.
It was possible that the death energy in this sun was comparable to the amount that had been back in Aeternus Nation. He felt 90% confident that this was a God of Death Domain.
Absorbing the massive amount of death energy had condensed the black and white mist in his heart a great deal, and it was much more than what he had possessed during ZENITH. This was actually related to his higher cultivation, as it had allowed him to absorb more death energy.
The more death energy he absorbed, the stronger his God of Death Transformation should be. He could not even guess how powerful his transformation should be after this boost.
“Alliance Leader Lu?” Starfox hesitated for a time before finally nervously calling out to Lu Yin.
Lu Yin turned around and looked at the two old assassins. “Let’s go. I can’t approach it.”
Starfox and Black Mask glanced at each other. “Alliance Leader Lu, could you tell us just what it is?”
Lu Yin replied, “It’s nothing that you can touch. If you do, it will absolutely kill you.”
“Could Alliance Leader Lu explain a bit more?” Black Mask asked. He was truly unwilling to not know anything even after staying in this place for so long and trying for the untouchable treasure.
Lu Yin considered the request. “Have you heard of the Specter Clan?”
Black Mask blurted out, “The clan that should be wiped out?”
Lu Yin nodded and looked back up at the black sun. “That thing’s connected to the Specter Clan, and touching it will likely transform a person into something like the Neohuman Alliance’s zombies.”
“Then how were you able to touch it?” Starfox asked. He suspected that Lu Yin was lying to them.
Lu Yin gave a small smile. “Because I already survived the Specter Clan’s attempt to transform me.”
Starfox and Black Mask were both shocked; they had not expected Lu Yin to reveal such a thing.
However, this information was not secret. All of the high-level officials of the Hall of Honor were already aware, and so Lu Yin had no intention of hiding anything. His God of Death Transformation was too distinctive, and it would give him away even if he wanted to keep the matter hidden.
“Let’s go. Don’t worry about this place. It won’t matter even if the Sixth Mainland finds it,” Lu Yin said. Nothing in this space had any value except for the death energy, and the death energy was useless to the Sixth Mainland. Also, it was possible that no one from the Sixth Mainland would even notice anything. All they would likely discover would be the impossibility of approaching the black sun.
If that black sun really was a God of Death Domain, then the power it held was too great. Forget a lone Envoy, it was likely that even a group of Semi-Progenitors would not be able to approach the sun.
After leaving the space that held the ruins of the Bizarre Sect, Lu Yin took fifty cloakstones and started back towards Zenyu Star with Liu Ye and Fei Hua. Aegis had also agreed to move to Frostwave Weave as soon as possible.
Additionally, the people of the Sea King’s Dome and several other powers from the central weaves had decided to move to Frostwave Weave. It was clear that the Sixth Mainland would soon completely take over the central weaves as well, and it would quickly become difficult for people to move.
After so long, Lu Yin was finally going to return to Zenyu Star. It felt like returning home. Zenyu Star and Earth were Lu Yin’s home. The Perennial World and his past as Lu Xiaoxuan was something he felt no connection to. Even if his memories eventually returned, he would remain Lu Yin. He would always be Lu Yin.
Beep beep beep
His gadget beeped, and Lu Yin glanced down to see that Madam Yōu was calling him. Lu Yin had no desire to get involved with the Yōu family or the Seven Courts, at least not at the moment.
Nothing would remain perfectly hidden in the universe. No matter what happened with the Yōu family, the moment that Lu Yin’s connection was exposed, it would cause all of the eight great flowzones to become wary of him, which would completely void the entire reason that Blazing Mist Flowzone had been abandoned by the Great Eastern Alliance.
Some time later, Lu Yin’s gadget beeped again. This time, it was not Madam Yōu calling him, but Balsam, the Innerverse president of Shamrock Enterprise.
Lu Yin had known that the woman would call him again, though he had not expected her to be able to endure for so long. More than ten days had passed since Yu Mu had escaped his hunter, and yet Balsam had only called Lu Yin when he was just about to enter Frostwave Weave. She must have been spending these days investigating the matter.
“Alliance Leader Lu, I’m sorry for being so bold as to disturb you,” Balsam said politely.
“What’s the matter?”
“Excuse me, but does Alliance Leader Lu have Yu Mu in his possession?” Balsam asked. The woman was not beating around the bush.
Lu Yin bluntly replied, “He’s not here.”
