Even after multiple inspections, Yun Yang realized he still did not know what it was.
He tried to pull at it with his hands, but it did not budge in the slightest, even after he had exhausted his entire cultivation reserves.
Although this chain was not very thick, its sturdiness was a first to Yun Yang.
Yun Yang smoothly pulled out a stolen blade from his spatial ring and brought it down swiftly. Clang! The chain remained unbudged, yet the blade had shattered into pieces.
“Allow me to enlighten you, brat — this must be the legendary Stellar Chain…”
When Dong Qitian saw how the chain had remained undisturbed even when Yun Yang had used a blade, he seemed to grow slightly forlorn. “This old man here has been imprisoned here long enough to do a little study myself. In the end, I still can’t tell what this is made of, but I only know that it’s something that cannot be easily damaged.”
“There was a myth that spoke of the reason that the stars in the sky never deviated from their positions was due to the existence of a Stellar Chain that linked them all together. This locked them in place… The name ‘Stellar Chain’ originated from there, so you can just imagine its strength.”
“A thing that could lock the stars in place could only be described as extraordinary!”
The more he talked, Dong Qitian seemed to grow even more dejected and the more he felt that Yun Yang would not be able to get him out of here. He felt extremely miserable, no longer his lively self from before, a man brimming with life.
Even with his impeccable cultivation base, he still felt that he could not escape from this unknown chain that locked him down. He could not even begin to think of a way to deal with it, so how would Yun Yang, a much younger boy with a shallow cultivation base, manage that?
He was simply seeking desperate remedies for an incurable disease.
The weapon wielded by Yun Yang earlier that had been reduced to pieces was not an item of superb quality, but from Dong Qitian’s eyes, it was at least an instrument of top-tier standards. If he took them all into consideration — Yun Yang’s age, his cultivation base, so on and so forth— owning a blade like this was already the best scenario this situation could take on. If he wished for more, that would only remain wishful thinking!
In other words… Nothing could beat how bad the situation had turned out to be now. He had hoped and prayed that someone would come to save him from here, but all he got, in the end, was just despair!
“Perhaps…” Dong Qitian suggested, disheartened. “Perhaps, let’s just forget about it… It would be great if you could provide me a little air of vitality to recover…”
Unexpectedly, a sudden clang whistled passed his ears!
Dong Qitian followed the sound with his gaze, but he was greeted with the sight of fiery sparks. When he focused his attention towards that direction again, he found Yun Yang wielding a smooth celestial blade with an extraordinary design in his hands.
Accompanied by a loud sound, it plunged towards the chains at his shoulders.
That glaring spark had originated from the clash between the Stellar Chain and that unique, celestial blade!
Even with Dong Qitian’s powerful perception, he, unexpectedly, could not make out the grade of this blade. However, one thing he was sure about was that this was an ultimate blade that he had never seen before in his life!
Dong Qitian watched as a cut materialized on the chain that he was so sure was indestructible! Although it was a very shallow scrape, it was still a cut nonetheless.
This outcome managed to send Dong Qitian into absolute ecstasy and invigorated with renewed hope. If it could be sliced into, that proved that this so-called indestructible chain could be severed!
The only thing that was worth celebrating more than hope itself would be the re-emergence of hope after devastating despair!
Dong Qitian regained hope, but Yun Yang, on the other hand, was not feeling terribly optimistic.
The Divine Edge might have successfully inflicted a cut into the Stellar Chain, yet, the large rebound of energy that resulted from that clash was equally enormous!
It instantly caused a trail of blood to trickle from the edge of Yun Yang’s lips.
The heavy wounds he had sustained were still not fully healed after all. The might he had forcefully unleashed this time around was no doubt already his best shot; it almost seemed like the damage inflicted onto himself was more than what that was inflicted onto the subject matter.
Yun Yang retracted Divine Edge and stepped forward to take a look, breathless. “As expected, this chain has an unusual sturdiness to it. Judging by my cultivation strength now, a stellar core would’ve at least cracked halfway through by the blow just now, whereas this chain only suffered from a cut of a hair’s thickness. I’m afraid the strength needed to sever this chain would be an astronomically large amount…”
“No worries, it’s good that you can cut through it. Dripping water would be able to penetrate stone one day, so this will definitely succeed in due time.”
Dong Qitian was almost shocked to the point where he could not manage to get a word out, but due to him being particularly fast-thinking, he deftly got back to his feet and gave Yun Yang ample confidence in a convincing manner. When he looked at Yun Yang, especially at the unparalleled blade in his hands, Dong Qitian felt his values thoroughly overwhelmed by the scenario before him.
With his cultivation level, melting metals using his mystical abilities was definitely not a very tough task. He could even cut through metal as if it was mud with his bare hands. However, every single technique he knew was useless against this weird chain, rendering him completely helpless.
Dong Qitian had tried countless times in the many years he was imprisoned here, so he already knew just how sturdy these chains were. Nothing could destroy it, or even break or damage it. It was simply indestructible.
The main objective of having Yun Yang here this time was none other than to save himself from a hopeless cause. It was just an attempt, for the thing he actually yearned for was Yun Yang’s air of vitality. As long as he had a certain level of vitality, he could attain a breakthrough for his stagnated cultivation state, and he could think of ways to save himself after achieving that.
If it was not for that, why would he even argue about the terms? He would have agreed to complete a hundred tasks without hesitation! What else could possibly be more important than his own freedom? Be it himself, his very being, his very life!
Bargaining about the terms like old women in a market was none other than a ruse to provoke Yun Yang, a plan to give Yun Yang more reason to help him. At least during the moment when he was asked for some air of vitality, he would not hesitate or be too reluctant to help!
However, never would he have expected that Yun Yang not only had the air of vitality, he also possessed this God-like blade that could damage this unusual chain!
This outcome was severely unanticipated by Dong Qitian, as if he had experienced an extremely pleasant dream.
This was the best possible thing that could ever have happened — something he did not even dare to hope for in the first place!
“Sigh, to sum it up, I’m still bearing rather serious injuries right now and I’ve already reached my limit, so I definitely can’t pry this open.”
Yun Yang continued. “Elder, please allow me two days to recuperate; once my abilities are fully restored, I believe that breaking this chain will not merely be sheer imagination. The day where you break out of here is just before your eyes, elder.”
Dong Qitian’s voice was quivering. “Good… That’s good… That’s great…”
This was simply the best, most earth-shattering news ever!
It did not matter if it was two days. Even if it was two years… Dong Qitian would still feel that it was terribly fast!
Hope and freedom are just before my eyes!
Just two days; why that’s nothing…
This blessing had come in too suddenly and too extraordinarily!
However, just as quickly, Dong Qitian suddenly felt time crawl.
The slowness of it crept up on him almost instantly after the ecstatic feeling wore off little by little. He did not live through everyday feeling as if years had slipped by, he was simply living through every second feeling as if years had passed!
It was unbearably slow!
