Old Man Tian Ji said shamefully, "World Slaying Divine Lightning is not an ordinary treasure. How can it be given away so easily? The reason why I said I would give it to you earlier is to let you protect us without reservation."
"You know, most of the Xuandao cultivators have malicious hearts. This is true."
"However, I regret having my original thoughts now. I am willing to give the Profound Ice Bomb to you. From today onwards, I will follow your example and be an upright person. Even if I die, I will die with dignity and a clear conscience."
"Otherwise, I will be sorry for Senior Brother's kindness to me."
Xiang Nan did not know what to say. He did not expect that this old man of Heavenly Secrets had been plotting against him.
Old Man Tian Ji said earnestly, "Xiang Bei, I sincerely warn you not to trust anyone easily. You must know that people are sinister."
"What you think is right may not be the case in the eyes of others. You are willing to do everything you can to help others. Others may not be grateful and may even stab you."
"But I think Brother Xiang Bei is absolutely right." The young man nodded in admiration, "If it weren't for him being Xiang Bei, no one like us would be willing to risk our lives to follow him."
"That's right. Speaking of which!" Xiang Nan slapped his forehead and said to the young man, "You didn't have to follow me. After escaping the Eye of Void, you should leave the Steel Continent and report all of this to the Star Guild."
"Yes." The young man smiled, "But we are worried about your safety. Although we are a little overconfident, we have become a burden to you in the end."
"Quick, don't say that. Without your help, I won't be able to fight in peace." Xiang Nan said.
Old Man Tian Ji said, "I'll get the Profound Ice Bomb right now."
As he spoke, Old Man Tian Ji opened a diagram on the ground and saw that the ground was slowly divided into two sides. Inside, a huge ice thunder was flickering intensely.
Old Man Tian Ji said, "I have set up a total of 888 restrictions in the pit where the ice lightning is located to seal off the cold energy of the ice lightning."
"If we take it out now, all of us will be frozen in eternal ice."
"Xiang Bei, I don't know what you're going to do with this cold lightning, but I can teach you the method of unlocking the restriction. You can activate it when we're far away."
Old Man Tian Ji whispered in Xiang Nan's ear for a while, and Xiang Nan nodded repeatedly.
"Alright, everyone, get out of here. The farther away you are, the better." Old Man Tian Ji led everyone out of the Ice Palace and fled far away.
At this moment, Xiang Nan was the only person in the Ice Palace.
As he looked at the Profound Ice Bomb, his heart was filled with incomparable excitement and panic. He had never come into direct contact with such a high-level World Exterminating Divine Bomb.
The White Flame Blazing Lightning was only ranked seventeenth, but this Profound Ice Bomb was ranked twelfth! He had crossed five rankings!
"There should be no problem." Xiang Nan took a deep breath and said, "I have already swallowed the thunder seeds of the two little ice thunder beforehand, laying the foundation."
"Absorbing the Mysterious Ice Thunder's true body now is practically enough to withstand it."
Thinking of this, Xiang Nan no longer hesitated. He immediately shocked the Nine Transformations of Lightning and simultaneously unlocked the restriction that sealed the Frost Lightning.
At that moment, the entire snowy mountain was frozen solid!
A ring of white coldness spread out from the foot of the mountain in all directions.
The mountains, rocks, trees, mud, insects, and wild beasts that passed by were all frozen into crystals in an instant!
The temperature of this Profound Ice Bomb was so terrifying that it actually directly modified the structure of everything!
Whether it was the earth element of the rocks or the wood element of the trees, the frozen elemental structure had completely collapsed.
In the southeast, a hundred miles away, Old Man Tian Ji shouted, "Not good! The cold air is spreading, quickly retreat!"
Xiao He was dumbfounded and said in horror, "We are all a hundred miles away, yet we have not dodged the cold air?"
The group of people hurriedly flew further away, and the cold energy behind them was still chasing after them.
In just a few seconds, nearly a fifth of the entire Tongtian Mountain Range was frozen by the cold air!
This scene was spectacular.
As for Xiang Nan, he was instantly frozen into an ice sculpture by the Profound Ice Bomb. That kind of low temperature was unimaginable.
However, Xiang Nan was still alive. The two little lightning seeds in his body gave him enormous resistance to lightning and cold energy.
His eyes could still move slightly, and in his heart, they rapidly circulated the Nine Transformations of Thunder.
As for the terrifying Profound Ice Bomb, it was pulled into his body by the Nine Transformations of Thunder.
In another instant, all the cold energy in the outside world disappeared! Everything revived.
On the other hand, Xiang Nan's entire body had turned into a humanoid sculpture.
Within his body, the Nine Transformations of Thunder were fiercely confronting the Profound Ice Bomb, and they both wanted to surrender to each other.
Time passed little by little. This time, Xiang Nan's absorption of the Profound Ice Thunder was much calmer than before, but it was much longer.
"You seem to be fine?" Xiao He saw the overwhelming cold Qi and suddenly retreated like a ebb tide. He hurriedly flew towards the direction of the snow mountain.
The others exchanged glances and rushed over hurriedly.
Finally, everyone discovered Xiang Nan's ice sculpture inside the mountain.
The Ice Palace had disappeared, and the snow mountain had returned to its original appearance.
Inside the empty mountain, the temperature normalized. Only Xiang Nan, who was sitting on the ground, remained motionless. He was an ice man.
"What did he do?" Xiao He's expression changed slightly as he hurriedly asked Old Man Tian Ji.
Old Man Tian Ji muttered to himself, "I don't know. This Northern brat has a lot of secrets, and I'm a little confused."
"Could it be that he ate that Profound Ice Bomb?" The young man trembled.
Everyone had strange expressions on their faces. Thinking about it, it was impossible for such a thing to happen. It was even less likely that gold would fall from the sky, but now, there was no other explanation.
"Kid Xiang Bei is not a fool. He should know what he is doing." Old Man Tian Ji said, "Looking at this sign, he won't be able to freeze for a while."
"I need to visit a few old friends of the Profound Dao. First, I need to help Ran Ran nurse her body. Then, I need to talk to them about how to break the ice."
"If Xiang Bei really makes a mistake and is frozen, we can't let him stay in this state forever."
"Right, right, right." The young man hurriedly said, "Hurry up and go. We are guarding Xiang Bei. Please find a way to freeze it."
"Yes, you guys stay here. I'll be back in a few days. If Xiang Bei is frozen before then, you guys are ready to leave. Just bury a message at the foot of the mountain and tell me."
With that, Old Man Tian Ji flew away with Su Ran.
On the other hand, the young man and Xiao He simply sat down around Xiang Nan.
"Aren't you guys going back to the Star Guild?" Xiao He asked curiously.
The young man shook his head, "For the time being, if we don't see Brother Xiang Bei safe, we won't be able to let him go."
"Yes." The other six Star Guild members also nodded in unison.
After a day and night passed, everyone quietly guarded Xiang Nan.
Two days and two nights passed, and Xiang Nan showed no sign of freezing. Everyone's hearts began to become anxious.
Xiao He was the most anxious. She had just defected to Xiang Nan. If Xiang Nan was frozen to death here, wouldn't it be a waste of time?
Early in the morning of the third day.
Suddenly, a large amount of intense aura fluctuations appeared in the sky.
Immediately after, he heard someone talking outside.
"That old ghost of the Huangpu Sea King has finally left."
"That's right. The Sect Master has instructed us not to cause any trouble in the near future, so as to prevent the Huangpu Aristocrat Clan from killing us."
"He told us to collect the three black space towers and bring them back to the sect. Hurry up and deal with this so we can go back early."
"Just thinking about it makes me angry. I was originally fine, but now I have to leave. In a month, our Fallen Snow Sect will bid farewell to the Iron and Steel Continent."
"Don't you blame the Huangpu Clan and that little bastard from the Southern Domain?"
Xiao He and the others tensed their nerves and didn't dare to move.
Right at this moment, a voice came from outside, "Three days ago, Xiao He betrayed the sect here and helped outsiders kill our own people."
"This is truly a place of shame for our Fallen Snow Sect."
Another person said, "Could it be that Xiao He and the Southern Domain kid are still here?"
"Are you crazy? They made such a big commotion, yet they still dare to stay here and wait for death?"
"No! I'm not talking nonsense. Quickly feel that there are a few slight fluctuations of Dipper Qi in the snow mountain."
Another person said, "Perhaps it's the fluctuations left in the air after their battle. Let's go and take a look."
As they spoke, they arrived in front of the snow mountain and looked curiously in from outside the tunnel. Under this gaze …
"Damn it! They're still inside!"
