Super Gene Optimization Fluid Chapter 550
"What is this place?" Phantom asked in confusion.
This space was enclosed by a rainbow of lights, and under their feet was a mirror-like plain of ice. In the distance was a pyramid made of ice and a rainbow ice coffin.
"Could this be a tomb? To think such a tomb exist in the universe, I wonder who could be buried here?"
Xia Fei was just as confused as Phantom. He could only find out the truth with his eyes, so after taking a deep breath, Xia Fei walked over to the ice coffin.
The pyramid platform had 999 steps in all, and flanking the stairs were statues of ice monsters with bared teeth and fangs. They had peculiar poses, their expressions streaked with madness. When walking among them, one could not help but be terrified.
The ice coffin at the top was circled by a rainbow. Its length was twenty meters and its height and width were five meters each.
Lying inside was a suit of black armor which was completely sealed off so that it was impossible to know if there was a body inside. It was such a massive suit of armor that anyone inside would have to be of comparably massive size.
Xia Fei tried pushing the coffin, but unfortunately, no matter how much he pushed, the coffin did not move a hair.
Bizarre! Truly bizarre!
Xia Fei lit a cigarette and sat down on the ice platform, hoping to relax a little.
Furball yawned and snuggled against Xia Feis neck. It was a very heartless fellow, not worried at all that Xia Fei was imprisoned in this strange field of ice. ITs only worry was presumably that sleeping here was not as comfortable as sleeping at home.
"What is this place?" Xia Fei muttered to himself as he puffed out a smoke ring.
Phantom sighed. Just when he was about to express his confusion, a voice came from the black suit of armor inside the coffin!
"These are the Eternal Ice Plains."
Xia Feis hair stood on end as he jumped to his feet!
That black suit of armor in the ice coffin had turned its head to him. There was an alloy visor over his face, making the man inside seem like a robot!
"Who are you?" Xia Fei asked sternly.
"And who are you? How were you able to penetrate through the Law of Light and enter this place?"
The voice from the armor was deep and old, tinged with a majesty that could not be denied.
"My name is Xia Fei." He took a step back and bent a knee. Xia Fei made sure he had enough energy stored so that he could respond to any sudden change in the situation.
"There is no need to be nervous. The Law of Light imprisons me, and I pose no threat to you." The suit of armor sighed. "I dont even remember how long Ive been imprisoned. Its nice to talk to someone else. You may call me Old Sable."
Old Sable? It was a very plain name, but no matter how Xia Fei saw it, this Old Sable was not a good sort. His massive body alone was extremely intimidating.
"You still havent answered me. Why were you able to penetrate the Law of Light?"
"Are you saying that those multicolored lights is the Law of Light? How come Ive never heard of it before?"
Old Sable chuckled. "Youre a human, belonging to the God Race, so you naturally wouldnt understand one of the Great Laws of the Demon Race. Not only are those colored lights Law of Light, theyre the supreme Law of Ternary Spectrum.
"Everyone knows that colors are all a combination of red, green, and blue, the purest and most striking colors. The three primary colors can be mixed into the majority of colors, but the other colors cant be mixed into the three primary colors. Upon mastering the laws of the three primary colors, one attains the Law of Ternary Spectrum, the supreme law across the Law of Lights range."
Xia Fei frowned. "Youre a member of the Demon Race?"
Old Sable unhappily asked, "Must I be a human? Just because youre a human, I have to be human. too? Why couldnt I be a member of the Demon Race?"
Xia Fei was speechless. It seemed that the demon imprisoned in the coffin was rather opinionated.
"Moreover, your attitude changed so much upon hearing that I belonged to the Demon Race. Do you really think that the God Race represents righteousness while the Demon Race represents evil?"
Perhaps because he had not spoken with anyone for a long time, Old Sable began a long lecture about principles, constantly emphasizing that there was no such thing as absolute evil or good in the universe, and Xia Fei could not help but get annoyed.
"Why is this demon such a chatterbox?" Phantom said with a frown.
"The God Race and Demon Race arent actually races. Ill use you as an example. Through cultivation, humans can also become members of the God Race. In truth, the God Race has always been a faction formed by the top-class experts of various major races in the universe. Whether one can become a member of the God Race depends on ones cultivation, not ones background. As long as your cultivation is enough, you will be accepted into the God Race, joining a group consisting of the strongest experts in the universe.
"Of course, because humans stand behind the God Race, they have no chance of joining the Demon Race. The gods and demons are opponents who are vying for authority over the Cosmic Gatea battle which has been fought since time immemorial.
Through Old Sables words, Xia Fei gradually developed a deeper understanding of these two supreme races. Rather than races or clans, they were actually two different factions that had split off from the collective mass of Law Adepts.
All the clans of the circle had to pick a side, either the God Race or the Demon Race.
Groups of the strongest Adepts? Xia Fei could not help but be curious about these two supreme races. What sorts of groups of old monsters were they?
"The God Race has the Time, Space, and Matter laws. The Demon Race controls the Light, Darkness, and Life laws. These six laws are the supreme Great Laws, and from them, countless other laws were derived.
"I cultivate the Darkness Law, and dark and light counter each other. My foe dispersed all my energy and then used the supreme Law of Ternary Spectrum to imprison me. Fortunately, I have an inextinguishable life, or else I would have been annihilated long ago."
Old Sable began chattering about his experiences, and after a few moments of silent thought, Xia Fei asked, "You have an eternal life because you studied the Life Law?"
Nodding, Old Sable said, "Indeed. I have an eternal life, and if he were to obliterate me, I would be reborn and once more regain my law powers! Thus, he doesnt dare to kill me as killing me would be helping me."
There existed such a miraculous law that allowed rebirth in the universe? Xia Fei was shocked. Was there anyone in the universe who did not want an eternal life? Was immortality not the ultimate goal that all warriors sought through cultivation?
Xia Fei was tempted by these laws that Old Sable spoke of, but his outstanding analytical sense told him that there was some other meaning in these seemingly casually spoken words.
"Who is the one outside who came with you?" Old Sable asked.
"You could sense him?"
Old Sable smiled. "Nothing that happens here on the Eternal Ice Plains can be hidden from me, but while I can see and hear, I cant do anything about it."
Xia Fei nodded. "Outside is my enemy. Hes stronger than me, and he chased me all the way here."
"Oh, I see," Old Sable indifferently said. "In truth, its very simple. You just need to kill him. Alas, your strength is still lacking. Nothing, not even the holy beast Shatterstar, can help you with that."
He seemed to be trying to entice Xia Fei. Xia Fei smiled. "Its fine. I have time."
Saying this, Xia Fei walked down the pyramid, sat cross-legged on the ice, and proceeded to ignore Old Sable.
Phantom anxiously said, "This Demon Race monster must have been incredibly powerful in the past. He must have a way to deal with that fellow outside. Why not ask him to teach you a few moves?"
Xia Fei shook his head, sternly saying, "Its not that simple. Hes waiting for me to ask for help."
"What do you mean?" Phantom did not get what Xia Fei was saying.
"Old Sable knows that I have the power of the Law of Primal Chaos and that I can use it to break the Law of Ternary Spectrum that has him sealed here. If its you who had been imprisoned for tens of thousands of years, wouldnt you want to borrow my strength to escape?"
"Is there a need to ask? Even if I had to beg, I would beg for you to break the seal," Phantom said.
Xia Fei chuckled. "You think that, and so does Old Sable. He tells me how powerful he is on purpose, and then he points out how bad my current situation is. This is precisely so that I would ask him for help."
"The moment I ask for his help, Ill have fallen into his trap. He will definitely have me release him as compensation. Do you think I should agree or not?"
Phantom asked, "Whats bad about that? Just release him. In any case, hes lost all his power, so he poses no threat to you."
Xia Fei sternly said, "Thats all based on his words alone. What if he hasnt lost his power?"
"Then you would be in danger," Phantom stroked his chin and said. From the name of the Demon Race alone, he could tell that Old Sable was very powerful. Xia Fei would be no match to him.
"Then what do we do? Just stay here for the rest of our lives?" Phantom asked.
Xia Fei said nothing. Taking out the upgraded Black Bat radar, he attempted to get in touch with Avril. Alas, there was no signal. This was how the Law Realm was. The signal could be good or bad at times.
"Lets just plan as we go. In any case, I dont wish to let this demon out."
"Then youll die imprisoned here. Theres a high-ranked Law Emperor outside waiting for you to throw yourself into his net," Phantom said.
Xia Fei took out a grade 3 Origin Crystal from his spatial ring and handed it to Furball, softly saying, "Lets wait and see who breaks first. Anyway, I have enough crystal reserves to last for a long time. Patience is also a form of cultivation."
Just as Xia Fei said, that demon Old Sable had been trying to get Xia Fei to ask for his help, but he had not expected for Xia Fei to be even more patient than he was, actually beginning to cultivate in this region surrounded by the Law of Light.
With the white jade ape in hand, Xia Fei used up the Origin Crystals and began patiently cultivating all calm and composed, barely looking any different from when he was residing in the Yu family. If there was one difference, it would be that it was quieter. People like Yu Qiqi or Mu Fuping would not suddenly jump out and disturb him.
Patience was a very valuable attribute of a warrior, and not falling to temptation had always been the basis of Xia Feis survival until now.
In this prison, Xia Fei was abnormally calm and patient. Outside, Mu Qiubo wanted to leave, but the Spatial Compass was ineffective, meaning that he could not leave even if he wanted to.
Letting out a long sigh, Xia Fei petted Furball and said, "Your masters Space Law has reached level 7! You have to grow up fast, too. In any case, we have plenty of Origin Crystals, so lets seclude ourselves here for ten years! We shall stay here until we can beat that fellow outside!"
Old Sable was stunned. Xia Fei was clearly saying these words for him to hear.
Have plenty of Origin Crystals?
Seclude ourselves here for ten years?
Old Sable was speechless.
Hmph! I simply refuse to believe that theres anyone who can actually resist the allure of the Law of Life. Old Sable inwardly fumed.
