Han Lin simply said, “I really can’t remember! Jing’Er please help me to say something in fairness!”
But Jing’Er was looking at the black stele monument silently. She seemed to be completely mesmerized by it!
Finally she gasped out, “There is a celestial sealing within this stele monument…”
Everyone’s attention was already on the black stele monument!
The Universal Old Man nodded as he pointed at the black stele monument, “This black stele monument must be familiar to some of you here.”
Lingfeng, Han Lin and the Sagess Ai nodded at the same time…
Yi Ping smiled weakly, “What does it says?”
Lingfeng laughed softly, “I know you will say that!”
Lele sighed softly as she muttered incoherent, “I don’t understand it too…”
Youxue was also smiling weakly…
The Universal Old Man laughed, “Let me show you!”
Yi Ping was bewildered, “Show? How?”
All of a sudden the Universal Old Man hit the black stele with an execution of his Ultrapowerful Force with a mighty impact as he shouted, “Like this!”
Immediately there was a thunderous martial force explosion that shook the vicinity!
The martial power of the Universal Old Man was startling!
Yi Ping was startled for the explosive impact of the Ultrapowerful Force matched the Asper Divinity Horizon Hand!
The Universal Old Man laughed jovially, “I have just overcome my divinity calamity so therefore I don’t need to conserve my true strength anymore!”
He stole a look at the Sagess Ai who was utterly stunned by his martial display and he was immensely proud of himself!
While the monument black stele did not even bulge at all from the sudden manifestation of the Universal Old Man’s martial force, the entire chamber was suddenly vibrating furiously as though an earthquake had suddenly occurred!
Suddenly the gigantic chamber appeared to be moving and shifting shape!
When it had ceased, a black portal had appeared from one of the walls in the black chamber!
The Sagess Ai asked, “What is this?”
The Universal Old Man laughed, “This black portal will take us directly to the upper levels of the Stellar Sanctuary!”
Yi Ping was astonished as he asked, “There is a shortcut?”
The Universal Old Man nodded, “It is only discovered by the Heaveness on our third attempt here. This shortcut will be able to take us to the tenth level of the Stellar Sanctuary. This will save us the time and get us ahead of the others. Do you know that the first ten level of the Stellar Sanctuary is like a gigantic maze? It is because the floors and levels of the Stellar Sanctuary are always changing every now. If we are not careful, we will either be lost or died from its numerous traps.”
Han Lin clapped her hands as she exclaimed happily, “Wonderful! There is a shortcut!”
The Sagess Ai was looking at the Heaveness as she asked, “You have actually discovered this shortcut?”
Lingfeng looked at her curiously, “Don’t tell me you did not know about that?”
The Sagess Ai sighed sheepishly, “I really did not know…”
Lingfeng said quietly, “At the thirty level of the Stellar Sanctuary, there is an inscription that describes how to do so. You have to hit the formation center of the black stele with enough martial force. Failure to do so will result in a severe repercussion.”
The Ultrapowerful Force was an external martial power skill that released a tremendous amount of martial force with a single impact!
The Universal Old Man laughed jovially as he said to everyone, “Come let us hurry and enter this portal!”
He had already dashed into the dark portal!
Yi Ping hesitated for a while because he could not see past the portal but it did not take him long enough to follow right behind the Universal Old Man.
As Yi Ping dashed into the portal, he could feel an electrifying sensation tingling through him and he was immediately surrounded by darkness!
While he was startled, he was not afraid at all.
In that split second, he could see the stars beyond the darkness!
But before he could appreciate the beauty of the dark heavens, he was pulled into a bright light and he found himself staggering forward in another gigantic chamber!
The Universal Old Man was smiling at him as he laughed, “Do you feel wobbly? Don’t worry, it will past quickly!”
Yi Ping smiled weakly at his protégé master as he looked at his surroundings keenly. He did not feel wobbly but rather, he had a weird familiar feeling about it. As a matter of fact, he was reluctantly to leave the darkspace!
He was soon joined by the other maidens who had all stepped forth from the dark portal.
Only Lingfeng, Lele and the Goddess Isa did not seem to suffer from any ill-effects as they exited from the dark portal but for the rest of the maidens, they appeared to be nausea and were holding each other weakly!
Jing’Er and Yang Min seemed to be hardest hit. They were extremely pale!
Yixian looked at the gigantic pillars quietly as she said gently, “This place is like the same place that we have come from but is only subtly different. There are many stone beasts that are engraved in the walls here.”
The Sagess Ai nodded as she said quietly, “That is where the Stellar Sanctuary really becomes very dangerous. Welcome to the true face of the Stellar Sanctuary…”
Youxue had immediately noted that there were seven passage ways and she had an uneasy feeling all of a sudden…
Yi Ping asked, “So we can take this dark portal back to the first floor?”
The Universal Old Man laughed, “Unfortunately it is a one way portal. We can only move forward and never backward.”
Yi Ping muttered, “We can only move forward from now on…”
Lele had walked quietly next to the Goddess Isa, “Hey! Do you care to shed some clues for us in the Stellar Sanctuary? Surely with your attainment, you must be really experienced way in and way out in this place. It is not forbidden to share this knowledge now that we are in the Stellar Sanctuary?”
The Goddess Isa was startled that Lele had dared to approach her without feeling intimidated by her icy cold aura and moreover Lele did not seem to be suffering from any ill-effects!
She asked Lele, “Impressive. You are not affected by the Heavenly Stellar Formation.”
Lele laughed softly, “I have seen even more impressive formations than this. This is nothing to me. You haven’t answered my question yet.”
The Goddess Isa replied coldly to Lele, “Don’t ask me. I have never been to the Stellar Sanctuary before.”
All of a sudden Yi Ping, the Universal Old Man and Lingfeng the Heaveness were stopped in their tracks by her sudden proclamation!
The Universal Old Man stammered, “You have never been to the Stellar Sanctuary?! Then how did you get your divine sword and achieve such a stunning level of attainment?”
The Goddess Isa may be able to hide her real state of divinity but when she had fought with Yixian the Celestial Fairy previously, her true level of divinity was revealed to be an Ancient Celestial!
Maybe even higher!
That was the conclusion of Yixian and Lie Qing after the duel!
Lie Qing was the first to ask this question, “In my opinion, the fighting level of this Goddess Isa exceeds anyone that I have ever seen. Though Shen Xingyue is able to move as fast as her but she is not able to defend and attack at the same time while she is doing speed attacks…”
