Tales of Demons and Gods
Chapter 491 - Duan Jian is Trapped
“Son, I didn’t expect you to really come back to life. That’s great!” Ye Mo’s tears streamed down his face.
Ye Zong’s furrowed brows slowly relaxed as he looked at Ye Mo, his expression filled with sadness. He knew that his father must have suffered a lot while he was dead.
All along, he and Ye Mo didn’t interact much and Ye Mo often stayed outside Glory City. They seldom had reunions. He never expected their last meeting to become a parting of life and death.
The resurrected him was filled with emotions.
However, the current scene made him feel extremely awkward. He had turned back into a child, and it was strange to be raised by Ye Mo.
Ye Zong could not help but touch Ye Mo’s hair. It was a different feeling having returned to the world of the living.
“Seeing my little Ye Zong makes me feel like I’ve returned to my younger days. Ye Zong, do you want some candy?” Ye Mo chuckled and said, “I’ll get someone to prepare it now.”
“Candy…” Ye Zong’s eyebrows twitched and his expression collapsed. Did Ye Mo really think of him as a child?
“By the way, I remember that you like Auntie An’s sugar figurines the most. Oh, I forgot. Auntie An is already more than 120 years old. She has long stopped making sugar figurines a long time ago.” Ye Mo could not help but burst into laughter. “What a strange feeling.”
Ye Mo put down the Ye Zong.
With a stern face, Ye Zong looked at Nie Li and said, “Kid, you caused me to become like this. Your punishment is to not meeting Ziyun for half a month!”
“Father-in-law, you’ve just been reborn and your body is still so weak. You might even wet your pants in the middle of the night. I have a way to treat your peeing. I wonder if you want to try it.” Nie Li pulled Ye Zong aside and whispered into his ear.
“Nie Li, how dare you insult me…” Ye Zong was furious, but he could not help but lower his voice as well.
“Father-in-law, I’m telling you the truth,” said Nie Li seriously. “If you really pee your pants in the middle of the night, it will really affect your reputation. When that happens, I’m afraid everyone in Glory City will know.”
Ye Zong’s heart couldn’t help but tremble as he asked, “That’s true.”
“Your body is reconstructed using the Spring of Life. After slowly gathering into a physical body, there will be excess water that will be expelled from your body. It’s inevitable for you to pee your pants when you sleep,” said Nie Li with a sigh.
“Then what can I do?” Ye Zong also felt that it would be embarrassing if he really peed his pants.
“Then the matter between me and Zi Yun…” Nie Li sighed.
“Nie Li, you are threatening me…” Ye Zong said fiercely.
“Not at all, I wouldn’t dare to, I just want to help you, Father-in-law.” Nie Li grinned.
“I won’t care about the matter,” Ye Zong said gloomily.
“This is the Heaven Source Divine Art. It’s especially suitable for bodies formed from the Spring of Life. Such bodies possess potent powers of the Heavenly Source, and their cultivation speeds far exceed that of ordinary people. Coupled with the powerful god-level Heaven Source Divine Art, you might be able to reach the Martial Ancestor Realm very soon. When that happens, you’ll be able to change your appearance and recover your original appearance,” Nie Li said with a smile.
Upon hearing Nie Li’s words, Ye Zong’s eyes lit up. He asked, “Can I really restore my original appearance?”
“Yes, you can,” said Nie Li. “Just treat this as a betrothal gift I’m giving to you, Father-in-law.”
“Betrothal gift? What are you talking about?” Ye Zong widened his eyes.
“Of course, if you don’t accept it, I’ll take it back,” said Nie Li with a grin.
“Nie Li, you bastard…” Ye Zong glared at him angrily.
“Haha, Father-in-law, I’m just joking.” Nie Li smiled and said, “I’ll give you this cultivation technique.”
He pushed the cultivation technique to Ye Zong and said, “Father-in-law, work hard with your cultivation!”
“Nie Li, I’ve already arranged for a few people to migrate everyone in Glory City to the Divine Feathers Sect!” Du Ze said to Nie Li.
“Okay.” Nie Li nodded. He knew that the Demon God’s Sect would definitely not let this matter rest.
As Glory City became busy, Ye Mo looked at the fallen city walls and let out a long sigh.
Standing behind Ye Mo, Nie Li smiled and said, “Grandfather-in-law, there’s no need to feel sorry. After we leave Glory City, we will go to a better place. In the future, we can return whenever we want. By then, the demonic beasts will no longer be a threat to us.”
“Previously, we thought that Glory City is the only home. Many generations of our ancestors fought continuously to survive here. Only now did I realize that in this world, Glory City is just an insignificant place.” Ye Mo could not help but sigh.
“That’s right. The world outside is endlessly vast. We can only know when we walk out. Glory City is just inside Tiny World. It’s an extremely small place, and Tiny World is only one of the three thousand smaller realms. The Draconic Ruins Realm is only one of the Trichiliocosm.” Nie Li looked up at the sky. “The outside world is filled with boundless realms.”
“The past us were really frogs in the well.” Ye Mo sighed.
Just at this moment, a loud explosion could be heard from a corner of Glory City. A terrifying shockwave swept across everything.
Nie Li quickly used his Soul Force to envelope Ye Mo and the others.
“Nie Li, what happened?” Ye Ziyun couldn’t help but ask.
“I seem to feel that the array formation that leads to the Abyss Prison Realm has exploded.” Xiao Ning’er used her Soul Force to sense it.
“The array formation that leads to the Abyss Prison Realm? Duan Jian?” Nie Li’s heart trembled. Could it be that Duan Jian had encountered something?
A thought suddenly came to Nie Li’s mind. Back in the Abyss Prison Realm, they had met a mysterious old man. That mysterious old man’s strength was extremely powerful, far surpassing that of a Legendary. At that time, he still couldn’t tell how strong the other party’s strength was, but that old man was definitely not ordinary.
Moreover, in the Abyss Prison Realm, the mysterious stone monument, as well as the legend of Emperor Kong Ming, all of these made Nie Li made negative connections.
“Let’s go and take a look!” With a deep voice, Nie Li shot off in the direction of the explosion.
Ye Ziyun, Xiao Ning’er, Du Ze, and the others followed. In an instant, they arrived beside the array formation. At this moment, the array formation was already destroyed and the surroundings were already in ruins. The location of the array had turned into a huge crater that was tens of meters wide.
The passage to the Abyss Prison Realm had been completely destroyed.
“Nie Li, the path to the Abyss Prison Realm is completely gone. What should we do? Duan Jian’s still inside!” Du Ze asked with a frown.
