Those swarm of beetles actually possessed the 'Spatial Swamp' attribute. They could distort space!
They treated space like sand, twisting a sandpit out, and the surrounding space would fall into this sandpit.
This was a spatial drag! Xiang Nan also existed in space, so he was also grabbed.
Xiang Nan's speed greatly slowed down, while the speed of the swarm of beetles did not change. As a result, the distance of thirteen li was instantly reduced to three li!
It didn't even take a second.
Xiang Nan injected a bolt of lightning energy into his body, causing it to reverse in his meridians. Under this impact, he immediately fell into a coma and instantly fell into a dream!
This was the result of his many experiments. In the past, every time he encountered danger, he would slap his forehead. This method was too stupid and inefficient.
He discovered that the lightning energy or aura in his meridians could be quickly reversed, and its powerful reverse impact could knock a martial artist unconscious.
Now, it could be said that this was a critical moment!
While Xiang Nan was dreaming and exchanging his dream body and true body, the swarm of beetles also buzzed through the air where he was!
It was just a tiny bit away!
In the dream, Xiang Nan lowered his head and looked at his sleeve. He couldn't help but sweat profusely. The sleeve on his left was already tattered, indicating that the beetles had already touched his sleeve while he was dreaming.
"So close!" Xiang Nan stabilized his mind, but at the same time, he discovered another problem.
When his true body entered his dreams, his connection with the avatar outside his body was severed, and the Taiyi Divine Art that had been in operation for nearly a day was also cut off.
"I've suffered a huge loss." Xiang Nan looked at the buzzing swarm of beetles and felt really upset.
On this day, not only did he fail to attract the lone beast, but even the Taiyi Divine Art was crippled, and he needed to start anew.
The snake comforted him and said, "It doesn't matter. You can learn from your mistakes. Experience is always found in failure."
"That's right," Xiang Nan said, "but … alas, that's the only way."
Outside the dream world, the beetles had lost their target and were still circling around searching for Xiang Nan's whereabouts.
This scene inspired the serpent. "You said that these things possessed a strong gravitational force, and the Nether Dragon's Black Domain also possessed a gravitational force," he said.
"What if you let them pull each other out of the Black Domain?"
"Those beetles will definitely be pulled into the Black Domain quickly," Xiang Nan said.
'"Isn't that enough?" Xiang Nan said with a smile. "You should really think about it when you have the chance. Look at me. I can think of an excellent solution every time."
Xiang Nan smiled bitterly and said, "What's so good about it? We're not here to kill fierce beasts, but to look for Saint Spirit Stones! You sucked all these fierce beasts into the Black Domain and killed them, but how can we take out the Saint Spirit Stones?"
"Even if I charge into the Black Domain, I won't be able to escape either."
The big snake gave a dry cough and said, "There was a miscalculation. I ignored this problem."
Xiang Nan said, "Wait, let's think about it in the long run. We'll talk about it after these beetles leave this place."
Fortunately, the swarm of beetles did not hover in place. Instead, they searched and flew into the distance. Gradually, they disappeared from sight.
It was almost time for the real body to be exchanged for a dream body. Xiang Nan carefully jumped out of the dream world and looked around. He was temporarily safe.
"Let's set it up here." Xiang Nan thought for a moment, then set up a White Tiger Formation on the spot and released his avatar to wander around.
After finishing it, he prepared to search for the insects again.
"Holy sh*t, it's coming!" Before Xiang Nan could set off, his heart sank. He felt the insects flying back, so he immediately turned around and fled in fright.
"How did you discover it? Could it be that they didn't go far? How did they discover my aura so quickly?" Xiang Nan couldn't understand.
However, when he looked back, he immediately came to a realization.
The swarm of insects did not chase after him. Instead, they attacked the avatar outside.
"Blade light!" The serpent said, "The intense fluctuations of the blade light attracted the insects."
The swarm of beetles quickly collided with the avatar outside. With just a single strike, the avatar of the seventh level of the Divine Martial Technique was smashed into pieces.
Thanks to this, Xiang Nan also had enough time to run far enough.
However, those insects could still sense Xiang Nan and chased after him.
Xiang Nan immediately took out a drop of blue water from his storage ring and directly fell to the ground. He stepped on the blue water and quickly shrunk into it.
"It's safe." Xiang Nan said.
Before he could finish speaking, his expression changed again, and the swarm of insects flew towards Blue Water.
"Damn it, how did you find out!" Xiang Nan jumped out of the blue water and immediately used his Dream Dao to swap positions between his true body and his dream body.
The swarm of beetles lost their target again and began to fly around blindly.
"What happened!" Xiang Nan said angrily, "Could it be that I was wrong? I hid in the blue water, and my aura shouldn't leak out."
The serpent said, "Fuck you idiot! Your aura won't leak out, but those bugs saw you dive into the blue water! They're not stupid."
Xiang Nan patted his forehead and said, "The busier I am, the more chaotic I am …"
That's right! It was a good idea to hide in the blue water. This was certain, but the premise was that it could only be called "hiding" if the enemy could not detect it.
The swarm of insects saw Xiang Nan dive into a drop of blue water with their own eyes. Aren't they going to directly attack that drop of blue water?
"Alright." Xiang Nan sighed and said, "The lesson of blood. This time, I have summed up another lesson."
"It's just that my Immortal Ascension Technique is about to collapse."
The Immortal Ascension Technique could only last for one hour, which was the maximum amount of time one could exchange one's true body for a dream body.
Previously, he had already used up a period of time for the Immortal Ascension Technique. Now, there were only about ten minutes left.
"But that's good. At least I've thought of another way." The serpent said, "Aren't insects attracted by the fluctuations of the blade light?"
"You can shrink the Taiyi Divine Art and avatar into a drop of blue water!"
"That's what you did last time in the Blue Light Forest."
"Yes, that's true," Xiang Nan said.
Fortunately, a few minutes later, the insects flew away again.
Xiang Nan used up all of his divine wandering time and fell out of his dream.
The moment he landed, he threw out a drop of blue water and shrunk into the water droplet.
After waiting for a while, the insects did not sense him, nor did they chase after him.
Only then did Xiang Nan feel relieved and released the White Tiger Formation and avatar in the blue water, allowing the avatar to begin swimming in the water droplet.
As for Xiang Nan, he jumped out of the blue water.
"Can you take this Blue Water away? If you can carry it with you at any time, you can carry a Taiyi Divine Art saber light forward at any time."
Xiang Nan muttered to himself. He tried to lift the blue water from the ground, but he failed completely!
A huge white tiger formation suddenly appeared on the ground!
The avatar had also grown larger, and the blade light had also grown larger.
In the distance, the insects flew back.
