Three days later, Ye Xuan walked out from the ancient ruins buried in the desert.


Although this remnant was extremely ancient, ever since Ye Xuan killed the man-devouring Mandala and obtained a portion of the loot, he didn't gain anything else.


Of course, there were many strange places within the depths of the ruins that even Zi Huang didn't dare enter. Ye Xuan was forced to stay far away from them, causing them to cry out in fury.

However, during these three days in the ruins, Ye Xuan had greatly improved his strength.

He was now completely able to grasp the Devouring Heart, which had completely merged with his right hand, causing the power of his right hand to increase greatly.

Not only that, Ye Xuan had already completed the basic cultivation of the soul technique "Possession", causing his control over his soul to gradually become more refined, allowing him to use his soul force to control the Primordius Shuttle in battle.

Possession had a total of nine levels, and every single level allowed him to use his soul to seize the target, causing it to become his doppelgänger. Possession targets didn't only include humans, but also ancient magical beasts and other races.


After reaching the first stage of body possession, one could become a clone, which was to say, have a clone!


When one reached the second stage of the 'Possession' technique, he could become a clone with two goals, which was to have two clones!


With each additional level, one more target could be created, one more doppelganger.


By training "Possession" to the ninth level, one would be able to Possess nine targets and become a clone.

In addition, the clones could train and grow on their own, and in the end, the nine clones would fuse perfectly with the original body, causing the original body's power to rise greatly!

It had to be said, this soul technique was incredibly powerful.

One person had nine different clones, and one could train them all at the same time. One could imagine how terrifying the efficiency was.

Even Zi Huang was full of praise for this soul cultivation technique.

Of course, all of this required a large enough amount of soul force!


Without a large enough amount of soul force to cultivate and possess another's body, one would only suffer a backlash, resulting in the death of the injured soul.


However, the cultivation of "Possession" was extremely complicated. Even with Ye Xuan's talent, it would still take some time for him to cultivate "Possession" to the first stage.

"Three days have passed, I wonder how Alice is doing? I have to go and take a look as soon as possible! "

While walking in the black desert and looking at the pitch black horizon in the distance, Ye Xuan spoke with a serious expression.


"Shua!"

As the sound of his voice faded, a pair of demonic qi wings appeared behind him, causing him to speed up his pace as he rushed towards the direction of the Purgatory River.

When Ye Xuan returned to the place where he'd left the Snow Goddess Alice, he didn't notice the figure of the Snow Goddess Alice, causing his brows to knit tightly together.

"My lord …"


Just as he was about to search everywhere, he heard a surprised voice.


Following the appearance of this voice, a somewhat miserable figure slowly walked out from an obscure corner.


She was none other than the Ice and Snow Goddess, Alice!

However, at this moment, her face looked somewhat pale. Her graceful body that was wrapped in a long robe made of ice and snow had a striking wound on it, especially on her sexy back. Her robe was torn apart by sharp claws.

It was obvious that she had not been injured for long. It had only been two days!

"Alice, your injuries …"

Seeing the Snow Goddess Alice walk over, Ye Xuan hurriedly went up to her and asked in concern.

"Master, it's good that you're back. My injuries are fine …" In the days after your disappearance, I had scouted the terrain and determined the route to advance. I didn't expect to meet a ninth stage Fierce Tiger, and got hit by a claw from it … "

Ye Xuan's words were interrupted by the Ice and Snow Goddess' Alice. "However, Sir, I've gained quite a bit these past few days. I've already found the route to the Wyrm Ravine."

"You've worked hard! You sit down first, I'll treat your wounds! "

Hearing the Ice and Snow Goddess' words, a trace of happiness flashed through Ye Xuan's eyes. He looked at the wounds on the Ice and Snow Goddess' body and spoke in a low voice.

"Thank you, master …."

The Ice and Snow Goddess, Alice, lightly nodded her head before walking to a nearby grass patch and sitting down.

"Take this healing pill first …" The wound on your back is very deep, and it hurts your bones. It might be troublesome to deal with it, so I might need you to take off your clothes. "


Ye Xuan handed a healing pill to the Snow Goddess, Alice. He looked at the wounds on her back and spoke in a low voice.


"Hmm …"


The Snow Goddess, Alice, nodded slightly. She stretched out her pure white hands and untied her snow-white robes, revealing her sexy shoulders, alluring collarbones, snow-white skin, and that sexy back that was destroyed by sharp claws, as well as the faint mysterious mark on her neck.


"What's that mark on your neck, Alice?"


A trace of doubt flashed through Ye Xuan's eyes as he looked at the mysterious mark on the Ice and Snow Goddess' Alice's neck. He couldn't help but ask.


"Master... This is the birthmark my mother gave me when I was a child. "


Hearing Ye Xuan's words, the Snow Goddess Alice was stunned. She subconsciously extended her hand to cover the mysterious mark on her neck as she laughed dryly.


"Is that so … It's quite pretty! "


A hint of realization appeared on Ye Xuan's face, but there was a trace of doubt in his eyes. He'd never seen a birthmark like this before.

"Boy, that isn't some birthmark, it's a popular slave imprint in space. If I'm not wrong, this little girl is probably someone's servant. Be careful …"

Zi Huang's voice echoed in Ye Xuan's ears at this moment, causing his gaze to turn cold. Shock surged up from the bottom of his heart. "Slave imprint?"


"That's right, under normal circumstances, it would be invisible. Only when it is closer to its owner or has some form of connection with him would it reveal itself, which is to say … This lady's owner is in this life forbidden zone, and he might very well be someone from the universe, you must be careful! " Zi Huang's voice was heavy.


"I got it!"


Ye Xuan nodded lightly as he felt a chill in his heart.


He had once heard the Snow Goddess of Ice, Alice, say that she had once charged into the forbidden zone of life and survived there. Now that she seemed to have become someone's servant, she was able to walk out from the forbidden zone safe and sound …

"The wound is very deep, and as it was not treated in time, it has already been infected and suppurated. I need surgery to cut off the rotten flesh and then stitch up the wound. The whole process is very painful because there is no anesthesia. Endure it …"

Ye Xuan took a deep breath and stopped thinking about this question. His gaze swept over the Snow Goddess' Alice's graceful figure before finally landing on the scar on her back.

"I'll be troubling you. Please don't hesitate to attack …" The Ice and Snow Goddess Alice spoke in a low voice.

"Alright, I'll start now!"

Ye Xuan didn't say anything else. Instead, he took out some disinfectant from the Void Magic Ring to disinfect the wounds on the back of the Snow Goddess, Alice.

"Hiss …"

Even though Ye Xuan's movements were very gentle, the alcohol still made the Ice Snow Goddess' Alice suck in a breath of cold air as she felt pain from her wound.

Afterwards, Ye Xuan picked up the scalpel and began to treat and cut off the flesh. During the process, Ye Xuan's movements were even more gentle, but the pain was incomparable, causing the Ice and Snow Goddess' Alice's delicate body to lightly tremble.

After the removal of the decomposing meat, Ye Xuan took out a bottle of Life Spirit Spring Liquid and applied it to the wounds. Its external use was much more effective than alcohol; it was able to promote cell regeneration, increase cell activity, and speed up wound healing!

After that, there were stitches and bandages.


It was already half an hour after everything was settled.


"Alright!"


Ye Xuan let out a light breath, finished the last of the bandages, and lightly said.

"Thank you, master!"

After hearing Ye Xuan's words, the Snow Goddess, Alice, instantly felt her body lighten. She hastily tidied up her clothes, stood up, and bowed to thank Ye Xuan.

"You're welcome..."


Ye Xuan lightly waved his hand as the Ice and Snow Goddess, Alice, moved, causing an alluring snow-white color to appear on her chest. It could be said that it was dazzling the eyes of others.


"Master, the sky is about to turn dark. There will be Demonic Wolves coming from here at night, let's hurry up and leave this place!" With our speed, we can leave this abyss before nightfall … "

The Ice and Snow Goddess' Alice swept her eyes across her surroundings. She raised her head to look at the gradually darkening sky and spoke in a deep voice.

"Good!" "Let's go!"

Ye Xuan nodded slightly. He summoned his Yin Yang Double-Headed Dragon, bringing the Snow Goddess Alice with him as he sped off into the distance …

"Gugu..."

"Rustle, rustle, rustle …"

At the edge of the cliff on the mountain peak, a few crows were standing on top of the treetops, cawing as if they had sensed something. They suddenly flew towards the sky, causing the branches to tremble.

A two-headed dragon covered in flames climbed out of the cliff.

Standing on top of the two-headed dragon's head were Ye Xuan and the Snow Goddess, Alice, who had escaped from the depths of the abyss.

"Phew …" "I finally managed to escape from that depressing place."


Looking at the empty scene before him and smelling the fresh air, Ye Xuan heaved a sigh of relief.


"That's right... We finally made it out! "


The Snow Goddess Alice nodded in agreement when she heard Ye Xuan's words.


If it weren't for the Yin Yang Twin Headed Dragon, they really wouldn't have been able to escape from the abyss so easily.


The Ice and Snow Goddess' Alice had just finished speaking when the servant mark on her neck, which was covered by her clothes, lit up, causing her clear eyes to instantly become empty and icy cold.


"Master... That is the place where Wolong River is located. We just need to go over the mountain in front, pass through the Heavenly Tomb and we can reach Dragon River … "


The Ice and Snow Goddess Alice spoke in a deep voice.


"Alright, let's go!"


Ye Xuan nodded his head lightly as he controlled the Yin-Yang Double-Headed Dragon to speed off into the distance.


When nightfall arrived, the sky turned completely dark. Ye Xuan and the others, who were on their way to the Graveyard of the Heavens, had no choice but to give up and stop.

The Graveyard of the Heavens was one of the most dangerous places within the Life Zone. It was unknown just how many of its ancestors and great powers had been buried here. As far as the eye could see, there were numerous tombs all over the place and the entire place was filled with an eerie and bizarre aura.

It was rumored that many of the experts who had entered the Heavenly Tomb Stage were scared to death here. Even an Emperor Level powerhouse or a quasi-Martial Saint would not be able to survive.

As night fell, layers of mist began to float out of the entire Heavenly Tomb. This caused the entire area to become even colder and stranger.

Ye Xuan's gaze swept across the graves that were filled with countless weeds and vines. His expression was solemn as he felt the strangeness of this place.


ji ji ji … *


Even the powerful Yin Yang Twin Headed Dragon felt uneasy at this moment. It turned into a streak of light and entered the Demon Dragon Ring.

"Alice, be careful..."

Just when Ye Xuan was about to turn around and warn the Snow Goddess, he noticed the mysterious mark on her neck flashed with a dazzling, blood-red light. Her pair of eyes were bloodshot as she stared at him with an ice-cold, savage gaze that caused him to feel a chill in the bottom of his heart.


"What's the matter with you, Alice?"

Seeing this, the Glazed Magic Flame on Ye Xuan's body appeared and spoke in a low voice.

"Hehe …" Master has waited for thousands of years.

Just as Ye Xuan finished speaking, a sinister voice sounded out.

Along with this voice, balls of ghostfire suddenly lit up on the tombs around them. A figure shrouded in darkness appeared behind the Ice and Snow Goddess, Alice.


"Tsk, tsk, tsk, tsk …"


Strange sounds came out from the ghost flames.


"My lord …"


The Ice Snow Goddess Alice respectfully bowed towards this figure.


"Who are you?"


Looking at the strange figure that suddenly appeared, Ye Xuan's expression slightly changed as he asked in a low voice.

"My name is Dark Servant, I have been waiting for you here for a long time! Capture him! "

Hei Ye coldly spoke as he coldly stared at Ye Xuan.

As soon as he finished speaking, the ice sword in the Snow Goddess, Alice's, hands appeared, carrying a sharp killing intent as she charged straight at Ye Xuan. The ghost flames in the surroundings also seemed to have received some sort of command at this moment, and they let out strange cries as they charged towards Ye Xuan ….

"Damn it!"


Seeing this, Ye Xuan's face went ice-cold. He let out an angry curse, and the scorching Glazed Magic Flame burst out from his body, spreading out in all directions.


"Aooo …"


Those ghost flames were hit by the Glazed Devil Flame and let out a miserable shriek as they frantically tried to escape …


As for the Snow Goddess Alice, she seized the opportunity to rush over to Ye Xuan. Her ice sword carried a sharp intent to kill as it pierced towards Ye Xuan.

Ye Xuan's expression turned cold as his fingers shot out and clamped onto the Ice and Snow Sword like lightning. He moved like a ghost and instantly appeared in front of the Ice and Snow Goddess, Alice. He pointed his finger at her chest, causing her body to freeze.

Meanwhile, Ye Xuan turned into a ray of light that carried a sharp intent to kill as he charged towards the servants.

"A bunch of useless trash. You actually want me to attack!"

Killing intent filled the servant's eyes as he saw this. He angrily cursed as the Skeleton Scepter in his hand appeared. He abruptly charged towards Ye Xuan with killing intent as he spoke icily.
