When Xiang Nan and the others appeared again, they were already on the first teleportation array.
Everyone immediately looked to the left and right, and the young man weakly shouted, "Sure enough, we've shaken off the Eye of Void!"
"The Eye of Void has been following us. Knowing that we must have teleported back, it will continue to chase after us," Xiang Nan said with a solemn expression.
"Quickly bypass the path ahead and move forward in an arc!"
Unexpectedly, the middle-aged man shook his head with a smile, "Xiang Bei, good friend, well done."
"We brothers have already exhausted all of our Stellar Qi. We can't continue to protect you. You can leave now. Remember to pass on the news to the Star Guild."
"The heroic souls of our twenty brothers will turn into stars in the sky, illuminating your path ahead."
Xiang Nan said angrily, "What nonsense are you talking about! Hurry up and follow me!"
The young man smiled and shook his head, "No, we will become a burden to you. Brother Xiang Bei, go, quickly leave, don't look back!"
Xiang Nan was deeply shocked. He didn't expect that these people had planned to waste all of their Astral Qi to buy time for him from the beginning. They planned to stay and wait for death!
"No! But! Yes!" Xiang Nan shouted, "If you want me to abandon you, why don't you let me stay and die with you?"
"All of you, leave! You can't keep a single one of them!"
Xiang Nan grabbed the young man's right hand and used the power of thunder and lightning to connect the seventeen people together.
"Lightning power, release!"
Xiang Nan roared angrily, activating the power of the White Flame Lightning.
In an instant, twenty people formed a herringbone formation and shot into the distance like lightning!
That speed was incredibly fast!
Between heaven and earth, thunder roared and herringbone-shaped lightning bolts flashed past, leaving behind a large amount of electric arcs in the air.
"Xiang Bei" The young man said weakly, "You are, you are burning your Astral Qi. No matter how fast you recover, you will not be able to catch up with the rate of consumption."
"Those of us will drag you down to death."
"Shut up!" Xiang Nan roared.
Quick! Too fast!
After Xiang Nan activated all of his lightning power, he had already reached a terrifying speed of thirty kilometers per second! It was almost one-third of Lei Dun's.
In just twenty seconds, an entire six hundred li had passed by in a flash!
However, although they had already dodged the radius of the Eye of Void, if they were facing the Eye of Void head-on, the size of their eyes could be regarded as a thousand miles in diameter.
"Not enough, not enough! Ahhhh!" Xiang Nan roared, veins bulging on his forehead.
He felt his Dipper Qi being rapidly sucked away.
His wind, wood, water, fire, earth, lightning, and other six attributes of talent were rapidly restoring his Astral Qi. However, the rate of recovery was not even one tenth of the rate of consumption!
To drag nineteen people by themselves and fly at extreme speeds was truly a huge burden.
Another twenty seconds passed, and in such a short period of time, Xiang Nan still flew 1,200 li!
"It's safe!" Old Man Tian Ji hurriedly said, "Xiang Bei, quickly stop. Once your strange ability reaches its lowest limit, it will backfire. Trust me!"
"If you don't have any spiritual energy to swallow, the World Devastating Divine Lightning in your body will directly devour your life force!"
"It's not enough, it's still a little too close, it's not safe enough." Xiang Nan couldn't open his eyes, but he knew that he wasn't safe.
"Let's do it again … let's do it a little bit more, we just need to do it a little bit more …"
Xiang Nan gasped for breath and forcefully dragged everyone into the air.
It was in such a state of extreme exhaustion that he actually dragged everyone and flew for another 30 seconds. In a blink of an eye, he was nine hundred kilometers away.
Finally, Xiang Nan couldn't hold on any longer. Bai Yan Lightning sucked away the last strand of Dipper Qi from his body and began to touch his vitality.
Xiang Nan suddenly felt his eyes darken and he fainted.
"Xiang Bei!" In his ears, he could only hear the cries of the crowd.
Two thousand and one hundred kilometers was enough.
The Eye of Void used the first formation as its center and needed to perform a circular scan. With its speed of ten kilometers per second, it would give Xiang Nan and the others enough time to operate.
After an unknown amount of time, Xiang Nan slowly opened his eyes, only to find that the surroundings were pitch black.
A tender hand gripped Xiang Nan's palm. Su Ran leaned over and whispered, "We're underground."
"Uncle Tian Ji has set up four concealment formations. We are temporarily safe."
"Brother Xiang Bei, you're awake." The young man hurriedly came over and said solemnly to Xiang Nan, "Thank you for your heroic deeds. You didn't leave us behind."
"But it's not wise of you to do so."
Xiang Nan weakly waved his hand, "Let's not talk about that now. Everyone, hurry up and recover your strength."
Old Man Tian Ji approached and unfolded a map in front of Xiang Nan. He pointed at a mountain range above and said, "Senior Brother's secret room is within this mountain range."
Xiang Nan smiled and said, "You're finally willing to reveal it."
Old Man Tian Ji sighed, "You are too similar to Senior Brother. You really are too similar. You are the kind of madman who would do anything to save someone."
"If I refuse to believe someone like you, there is no one in this world worth trusting."
The young man said, "The good news is that the mountain range is very close to us. It's only about 200,000 miles away."
"If there are no pursuers, we can fly freely and arrive in about two days."
"What's the bad news?" Xiang Nan asked.
The youth said, "The bad news is that we passed through that mountain range when we rushed to Amethyst City."
"That place is already under the control of the Fallen Snow Sect. I don't know what they're doing, but there, they built three black towers that span the sky."
"Heavenspan Black Tower?" Xiang Nan frowned and said, "Draw it for me."
"Mm … I remember it was probably …" The young man recalled, drawing the outline of a black tower on the ground.
"No, this isn't the case here." Another person came over to correct the situation and modified the top of the black tower.
Looking at the black tower, Xiang Nan was stunned and exchanged glances with Old Man Tian Ji.
The two of them said in unison, "Spatial passageway!"
Old Man Tian Ji said very quickly, "The three black towers are three-footed. This is the most stable spatial structure!"
"The shape of each tower spike is used to store void stones!"
Xiang Nan replied, "This is a spatial passageway in this world. I understand. This spatial passageway is used to allow the Fallen Snow Sect to retreat."
"They massacred in the Iron Continent, and this spatial passageway was prepared by the Heavenly Profound Sect for the Fallen Snow Sect."
"When the Star Guild reinforcements arrive, they can directly jump to other continents through the spatial passageway."
"Steel Continent, don't you want it?" The young man was stunned, "They used so much effort to seize the steel continent and retreat so easily?"
"You don't understand." Xiang Nan shook his head, "They have spatial passageways. They can leave at any time and return at any time. If the Star Guild sends a large number of warriors to guard the Steel Continent, the defenses of the other continents will be weak."
"If the Star Guild doesn't guard the Steel Continent, they will naturally swagger back to accept it. This is a method of containment. No matter what, the Star Guild can't handle such a difficult problem."
"Then …" The young man thought, "Isn't that mountain range the rear of the Fallen Snow Sect? How can we come out alive if we barge into such a damned place?"
