Chapter 2326: Leave the Illusion
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Perhaps, he didnt really see Gu Ning and Tang Aining, and might be in an illusion now.
Thinking of that, Leng Shaoting felt it was highly likely, because they shouldnt have disappeared so abruptly if they were real.
Luckily, Shangguan Yang had told him about illusions, so it wasnt strange to him.
However, how should he get out of here now
Where was Ningning
Since he could enter an illusion, Gu Ning must be in an illusion too.
He wondered whether they were in the same illusion.
Most importantly, he wanted to know whether Gu Ning was safe and whether she could leave the illusion.
Leng Shaoting was filled with worry, but he couldnt do anything about it.
If Gu Ning was in the same illusion as him, he hoped that they would meet as soon as possible, then go out together.
If she wasnt, he hoped that he could leave this place quickly.
He hoped that he would see Gu Ning after he got out of here.
He entered this illusion on his own, so he had to leave it by himself as well.
After Gu Ning crossed the barrier, she didnt go back to where she was before she entered the barrier.
Instead, she found herself in a white place.
It was covered entirely in white, and she couldnt find its beginning or end.
Gu Ning understood that she was in another illusion now.
It seemed that it wouldnt be easy for her to go back to her own life.
Gu Ning didnt know what to do now, so she could only walk along to see if there were any clues.
She had no idea how long she had walked, but suddenly she saw a beam of light quickly approaching her from the front.
Gu Ning was frightened and immediately avoided it.
However, even though she was very agile, she was still almost hit by the beam of light.
Before Gu Ning could relax, the beam of light attacked her once more.
Gu Ning swiftly avoided it again.
The light beam attacked Gu Ning endlessly, and more and more appeared.
Although Gu Ning used her magical power to make herself faster, after a long time, she was losing strength and slowed down.
Finally, she was injured by a beam of light.
The beam of light cut Gu Nings arm, and it felt as if she was being burned by fire, leaving Gu Ning in pain.
However, the beams of light wouldnt stop attacking her, and Gu Ning continued to dodge, but more and more parts of her body were injured.
Gradually, Gu Ning was out of strength, and almost passed out.
However, right at this moment, Gu Ning felt that the energy in her lower abdomen was running around, especially in her energy center.
She felt that the flow of magical power was expanding as if it was going to explode.
She understood that the energy in her body had reached another level, and she was about to break through to the next level now.
Gu Ning stopped paying attention to the beams of light which were attacking her and her injured body.
She immediately sat down cross-legged and relaxed, trying to focus on the energy inside her body.
She moved it to hit the barrier.
In such a situation, if she didnt break through to the next level right away, the energy in her body would expand till it exploded.
Then either her tendons or energy center would be broken.
She would suffer a very terrible result.
As a result, Gu Ning had to ignore the aggressive beams of light and sit down at once.
Normally, cultivators could feel it when they were about to go to the next level, and would be prepared for that.
Just like what Jing Yunyao had done before.
They were all prepared beforehand.
It wasnt strange that Gu Ning always advanced to the next level in a crisis, but it wasnt common.
It usually happened when a cultivator was about to go to the next level, and there were outside influences that urged the energy in their body to gather, so the cultivator suddenly needed to break through to the next level right away.
When Gu Ning was fighting against the beams of light, the energy inside her body became active so she needed to break through to the next level now.
The beams of light continued to attack Gu Ning, but they couldnt injure her anymore.
Once they touched her body, they were absorbed.
It wasnt easy to break through the barrier, and might take a very long time.
Therefore, at the beginning, when Gu Ning moved her magical energy to hit the barrier, it stood firm.
Luckily, Gu Ning had the Blood of the Phoenix.
With its magical power, Gu Ning became stronger and the barrier began to shake after a short while.
Due to the magical power, Gu Nings wounds started healing.
Once the barrier shook, Gu Ning gave it another heavy hit and it finally broke.
After the final hit, she successfully broke through.
She managed to get to the peak of the Heartbeat Stage by turning the power into qi.
It was significant progress.
Gu Ning actually wanted to seize this chance and tried to directly get to the Golden Core Stage of turning qi into energy, because she felt that she could continue.
However, right after she got to the stage of turning qi into energy, she had to suffer nine heavenly thunders.
Therefore, as soon as she broke through the barrier, the heavenly thunder came down.
It was impossible for her to go to the next level right now.
She had to avoid the heavenly thunder as fast as possible, or she might die, and she didnt want to lose her life.
Although Gu Ning lost a lot of strength when she broke through the barrier, she quickly filled herself with strength under the help of her magical power.
Therefore, she could still avoid the heavenly thunder.
Because the heavenly thunder was very powerful, even if it failed to hit Gu Ning, Gu Ning was still affected by its great force.
So she was slightly injured inside.
Right when heavenly thunder came down, a crack appeared in the illusion and Leng Shaoting saw it.
Leng Shaoting knew that it was the heavenly thunder, and there must be a cultivator who was going through the heavenly tribulation.
However, Leng Shaoting thought that he might get out of here through the crack.
He wasnt sure of it, but he thought that it was possible and he wanted to try.
Without delay, he took out his sword and flew towards the crack.
He did his best to avoid the heavenly thunder along the way.
It was very difficult, because the heavenly thunder was close to him.
He could easily be hit if he wasnt careful enough.
As a result, Leng Shaoting failed several times when he avoided the heavenly thunder.
At the fourth time, he succeeded in rushing out of the crack.
He wasnt hit by the heavenly thunder, but he was shocked by their great force.
Even his soul trembled a little and he almost fell from his sword.
If he really fell, all his efforts would become a failure.
After he rushed out of the crack, Leng Shaoting indeed got back to the barrier in the cave with strong wind.
In other words, he was really out of the illusion.
However, Leng Shaoting wasnt happy, because he didnt see Gu Ning.
If Gu Ning got out before him, she would be waiting for him here.
Therefore, if she was absent, she must be in the illusion, so Leng Shaoting couldnt be happy.
