Chapter 157: Leylan Grievin. Yao Jun's consciousness was hazy as he slowly woke up, his eyelids heavy and his body weak. He struggled to open his eyes, spending an unknown amount of time just to force his eyes to open. When he finally managed to open his eyes, the world he saw was blurry, as if he was looking at it through a veil. He vaguely remembered landing in something wet after passing through the spatial rift, but as his eyes started to slowly clear up, he saw that there was currently a light brown wooden ceiling above him. He felt a soft sensation below him, so he guessed that he was currently lying in a bed. Yao Jun did his best to turn his head to the side and inspect the room around him, just barely managing to lay his head on the side. After turning his head, he could see that he was currently in a small room, only a few meters in size. The floor and walls were made out of the same light brown wood as the ceiling, and there was barely any furniture in the room, only the bed he was laying on, a single chair next to his bed, and a single small square closet standing against the wall next to his bed. There was a locked green door on the wall, but no windows as far as he could see. Yao Jun tried to stand up from the bed, but the moment he tried to move, he felt a terrible pain wrack his entire body. Unable to stand up, he could only continue to lay in the bed and focus on recovering. While he focused on recovering as fast as possible, he also noticed something strange in his vision. Wherever he looked, there were strange silver lines in the air. The silver lines were moving about in the air in a wavy manner, but they would simply pass through anything they touched. Yao Jun also took a look at the current condition of his body, and could not help but feel like grimacing when he saw the state he was in. His organs were displaced and bruised, several of his bones broken, but the worst was that his veins were scarred and distorted. With his veins distorted, it would be hard for him to move his Qi as he wished. After Yao Jun spent some time focusing on his recovery, he suddenly heard the door to the room open. Yao Jun immediately turned his gaze towards the door and raised his vigilance. He had no idea where he was or who had brought him here, even worse was that he was seriously wounded. If someone were to try and kill him now, he would have to rely on Little Gray and the others and try to flee. Two men, one young and one old, stepped into the room, both having appearances that Yao Jun had never seen before. They were very tall, both easily over two meters tall, their skin was somewhat pale, and their head was rather thin, their features elongated in a strange fashion. The young man had short green hair and was clad in a long and coarse yellow robe that scrapped the floor as he walked, while the old man had shoulder length brown hair and was clad in a smaller and more tight-fitting green robe. Upon noticing that Yao Jun had awoken, the old man narrowed his eyes, taking on a vigilant stance. But the young man simply ignored the old man, a smile appearing on his face as he spoke out in a voice that had a rather high pitch. “You've awoken? Your body truly is sturdy, not only did you survive getting attacked by the Ash Flyers, but it only took you a single week to wake up.” The young man walked forward and sat down on the chair next to the bed, looking at Yao Jun with a curious smile. The old man stood behind the young man, looking at Yao Jun with narrowed and vigilant eyes. Seeing Yao Jun not say anything, the young man slapped his own forehead, speaking out with a light laughter. “Right, you must be a bit confused right now. Allow me to introduce myself, I am Leylan Grievin, this is my martial uncle, Seshio Samut. Would you mind telling me why you were trying to charge through Ash Lake with only a cultivation at the middle stage of the 3rd Mortal Earth? Had we not coincidentally found you, you would likely have been eaten already.” Yao Jun did not immediately respond, rapidly digesting the information as his thoughts moved. He had never seen or heard about people who looked like this Leylan in front of him, their names were also very strange and unfamiliar. Yao Jun had also never heard about anything known as Ash Lake or Ash Flyers, despite reading quite a large amount of books on the Guanyu continent. Yao Jun had also noticed that his cultivation had indeed risen to the middle stage of the 3rd Mortal Earth, something he guessed had something to do with the orb of blood given to him by the titanic bird. But right now, Yao Jun did not care about any of that, because he had noticed something about this Leylan and Seshio. He had noticed that this Leylan, who looked like a youth in his twenties, had already reached the middle stage of the 8th Xiantian Heaven. And the Seshio that stood behind him, Yao Jun could not feel an ounce of energy from him, but he noticed that the silver lines that moved through the air seemed to avoid moving close to this old man. An unknown place, unknown names, and unknown people with unfathomable strength. Keeping these thoughts in mind, Yao Jun spoke out in a hoarse voice. “Yao Jun. I never planned on charging through this Ash Lake, I was tossed there after being forced into a spatial rift.” Yao Jun had quickly discarded the thought of lying to them. With the strength of the two of them, it was hard to know if they had any way to discern if he was lying. And since escaping was most likely practically impossible, he realized that he might not have any choice but to do whatever these people told him to. After hearing Yao Jun's hoarse voice, Leylan could not help but raise an eyebrow and speak out in a slightly surprised voice. “You managed to survive being forced into a spatial rift? Must have been a small tunnel. So you have no idea where you are right now? Do you know where you were when you were forced into the spatial rift?” To survive traveling through a spatial rift, it could only mean that a person had a high cultivation level, a terrifyingly strong body, great achievements in the laws of space, or that they only had to stay in the spatial rift for a short moment. And while Leylan could see that Yao Jun had a rather strong body, it was not strong enough to survive through a long spatial rift. Because of this, he guessed that Yao Jun had only been inside the spatial rift for a few seconds at the longest. “Grand Quan continent.” Yao Jun once again did not bother lying, stating the continent he had been one when he was forced into the spatial rift. Based on the information he had gotten so far, Yao Jun already had some ideas about where he might currently be, but he could not yet be certain. Leylan slightly furrowed his brows after hearing Yao Jun's response, turning to look at Seshio behind him. “Grand Quan continent? Maybe it is from one of the surrounding planets? Have you ever heard about it, martial uncle?” Hearing Leylan's words, Yao Jun's heart sank slightly as he realized that his idea had been correct. He was no longer on his own planet, the spatial rift throwing him through the seal placed around their planet and sending him to an unknown planet. With him now on an unknown planet, how long would it take him to return to Guo Luo? The man who had been introduced as Seshio sank into thought for a short moment, but in the end he could only lower his head and let out a sigh, speaking in a humble and apologetic voice to Leylan. “Forgive me for my incompetence, Young Master, but I have never heard about this Grand Quan continent.” Leylan once more furrowed his brows after hearing the words of Seshio. He waved his hand slightly, indicating that Seshio didn't need to worry about it. “If you have never heard about it, then it cannot be located on any of the closer planets.” Leylan turned back to Yao Jun, the smile on his face growing brighter as he looked at Yao Jun. Yao Jun felt slightly uncomfortable being looked at like that, but he could feel that this Leylan did not have any ill intentions, only large amounts of curiosity. Leylan stood up from the chair and headed towards the door, waving his hand at Yao Jun as he spoke. “You must be quite hungry, let me call over a maid to deliver some food and medicine. We can talk more once you have managed to eat and recover a little more.” Not long after Leylan and Seshio left, the door to Yao Jun's room was opened once more. The person who entered the room was a girl who was a bit shorter than Leylan, but still over two meters tall. Her skin was also pale, her features elongated. She was clad in a black maid uniform made out of coarse cloth and carried a tray in her arms. Atop the tray was a bowl of soup that released a sweet fragrance, as well as three light green pills. The girl placed the tray on the closet next to Yao Jun's bed and gave him a slight bow. Strangely enough, her voice was deeper than both Leylan's and Seshio's. “Greetings, I am Felicia Gilderbar. Young Master Leylan told me to deliver some medicine and food to you. I will be waiting outside the room, should you require anything, you need only call out.” Yao Jun slightly nodded his head at Felicia, but on the inside he was completely shocked. The girl looked about his age, but already had a cultivation at the early stage of the 5th Houtian Sky. So young and such a cultivation, yet she was only a maid? After the maid left, Yao Jun looked at the tray next to the bed. The soup was a light red in color, pieces of what seemed to be vegetables floating in it. The three pills released a light medicinal fragrance that carried a slight resemblance to some of the herbs that Yao Jun had inside his own God Gate. Yao Jun struggled to sit up as much as possible, and then picked up one of the pills. He closely inspected it for a few minutes, and after making sure that he could not detect any poison, he put the pill in his mouth and swallowed it. Right now, the thing he had to focus on was to recover his strength and then find a way to return to his own planet.
