Lightning flashed in the huge underground thunderbolt pool as if a rampaging lightning dragon was madly producing thunder and lightning inside.
Zhou Yuan dazedly stared at the thunderbolt pool as the flashing lightning within continuously reflected in his eyes. It was obvious that he still hadn’t recovered from the shock.
They had merely been hoping to try their luck by exploring Blackwater. Unexpectedly, they had somehow hit the exact right spot...
The reaction from the three Saint Runes in his body was enough to prove that this place must be connected to the Cangxuan Saint Stamp.
Zhou Yuan exhaled a long breath, trying hard to suppress the churning waves in his heart. If their findings became known, the entire Cangxuan Heaven would instantly descend into chaos.
When that happened, the tiny Cangmang Continent would become the focus of the entire Cangxuan Heaven.
“What do we do now?” Zhou Yuan turned to Yaoyao, feeling a headache.
Yaoyao was calm and composed as always. “What else can be done? Of course we have to go in and find it. Palace master Sheng Yuan has already pried into the mystery only known to the heavens and the Cangxuan Saint Stamp has been exposed. It is only a matter of time before it’s found.
“All we’ve done is found it a little earlier than the rest. If we don’t take advantage of this chance, it could fall into the hands of palace master Sheng Yuan.”
Zhou Yuan nodded. Indeed, even if they hadn’t found this place, the other mighty beings would have discovered it soon.
But how do we find the stamp?
Enter the thunderbolt pool?
Zhou Yuan felt his scalp turn numb as he gazed at the bottomless thunderbolt pool. That was the power left by the thunderbolt punishment. Although it was only residual power, it gave off a terrifying aura of destruction.
Zhou Yuan believed that not only experts of the Divine Dwelling stage, but even experts of the Heavenly Sun stage or the Nascent Source stage would be destroyed by the thunderbolt pool.
“This thunderbolt pool contains the power of destruction. It is extraordinary.”
Yaoyao silently gazed at the thunderbolt pool for some time before she remarked, “I am afraid that only people with Law Domains can pass through this pool. The inside and outside of a Law Domain are akin to two different worlds that can separate the corrosion of lightning.”
Zhou Yuan felt that he had lost all hope when he heard this. In the entire Cangxuan Sect, only sect master Qing Yang was a true Law Domain expert.
But Yaoyao explained, “If it's the power of the Law Domain, it’s not completely impossible for you....you have the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune in your body, and if I'm not mistaken, it should possess a power similar to the Law Domain.”
Zhou Yuan was taken aback. He had previously activated the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune and had indeed felt that it could produce a mysterious power.
But he didn't know that this mysterious force was the power of the Law Domain.
“Of course, the Law Domain power of the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune can’t be compared to a true Law Domain, but it should still have the ability to form its own world.” Yaoyao’s red lips moved slightly as she elaborated.
Zhou Yuan hesitated for a moment. With a thought, he activated the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune.
As the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune quivered, a faint light emerged from Zhou Yuan’s body, forming a small egg-shell-like light screen around him.
The little light screen exuded mysterious waves of energy. When it appeared, Zhou Yuan suddenly felt a mysterious sensation, as if he was no longer within Cangxuan Heaven.
It was as if the inside of this Law Domain shell was a completely separate world.
“It is indeed the power of the Law Domain...” Yaoyao exclaimed, “The Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune truly is a mysterious object from the Cangxuan Saint Stamp. I never imagined that a mere Divine Dwelling expert would be able to possess the power of the Law Domain.”
Zhou Yuan studied the little Law Domain light shield, mumbling, “But it’s too small.”
The reason why the Law Domain was strong was because when the Law Domain spread over a place, the master of the Law Domain would become the master of the area. Even the Genesis Qi there would be under their control.
The Law Domain of a true Law Domain expert could stretch tens of thousands of miles.
But Zhou Yuan’s Law Domain shell only extended a few feet. He couldn’t even take a step forward, what could he control?
Yaoyao could not help back her smile as she said, “Although the effect isn’t great, it can indeed open up a little world of its own.”
Zhou Yuan helplessly shook his head. The two feet Law Domain that the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune created was incredibly powerful, but this self-contained ability that separated one from the outside world was most likely best suited for escaping or avoiding detection from top experts.
The main effect of the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune should be to transform the Divine Dwelling.
For example, the Divine Dwelling of Zhou Yuan had become an unprecedented chaotic Divine Dwelling...
“Can this thing really help us pass through?” Zhou Yuan was filled with doubt. After all, the bottomless thunderbolt pool was indeed really terrifying.
“Try and you will find out...”
The space between Yaoyao’s brows began to glow. A split second later, Spirit power drew out a bolt from the thunderbolt pool and sent it straight towards Zhou Yuan.
Zhou Yuan’s body stiffened when he saw this. The lightning might appear to be weak but was enough to severely injure him if it landed on his body.
Fortunately, the thunderbolt seemed unable to perceive his existence when it neared. It simply circled around two times before scattering.
Zhou Yuan's face lit up with joy. “It really can isolate me from the thunderbolts!”
Yaoyao gave a satisfied nod. “With the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune, you’ll be able to conceal yourself even from experts of the Law Domain stage.”
Experts of the Law Domain were very sensitive to the world around them, and only existences of the same level could block off opponents with their own Law Domains.
It was an excellent means to protect oneself.
After trying the effect of the two feet Law Domain again, Zhou Yuan said with confidence, “I’ll go down to try it out first.”
The thunderbolt pool was too dangerous. He didn’t want to bring Yaoyao with him in case an accident happened.
But Yaoyao shook her head, “Take me with you, otherwise I’ll be worried.”
Although the two-feet Law Domain of the Heavenly Punishment Saint Rune was effective, she was still worried that something unexpected would occur. If she was with Zhou Yuan, she would be able to protect him. However, if such a situation really occurred, there was a possibility of an extremely bad outcome.
Zhou Yuan hesitated for a moment but did not say anything. He nodded and smiled at Yaoyao as he stretched out his arms.
The two-feet Law Domain was too small. If he wanted to bring Yaoyao with him, the two would have to stand really close to each other.
Seeing his actions, Yaoyao bit her red lips as she glared at him, but in the end she still helplessly leaned forward.
A sweet fragrance brushed Zhou Yuan’s face, making him feel uncontrollably happy. His arms reached out to hug Yaoyao's slender waist. When he touched her clothes, his hands pressed down a little, feeling the tiny waist that made his heart beat faster.
Feeling her warmth and soft skin, Zhou Yuan cleared his throat and said, “Lean closer, the Law Domain is too small.”
Yaoyao reached out and pinched Zhou Yuan’s waist before she said in an expressionless voice, “Don’t push your luck.”
Zhou Yuan grimace. He then glanced at Tuntun in Yaoyao’s arms and suggested, “This guy takes up too much space, why don’t we leave him up here to wait for us.”
Tuntun’s claws sprang out like lightning when it heard this and wildly scratched at Zhou Yuan’s face.
A few seconds later, Zhou Yuan powerlessly said with a now bloodied face, “Let’s go together.”
Tuntun chuckled mockingly, and then sprang up to lie on Zhou Yuan's head.
With Yaoyao in his arms and Tuntun on his head, Zhou Yuan looked at the raging bottomless thunderbolt pool and drew a deep breath as a resolute look emerged in his eyes.
He cast away all hesitation and dived head-first into the thunderbolt pool amidst the destructive roars of thunder.
