At the center of a chamber sat a man with his legs crossed and azure light shimmering all over his body. Around him were five pristine white jade-like humanoid skeletons that were also seated with their legs crossed.
These skeletons were enveloped in a layer of greyish-white devilish Qi, yet all of their mouths were slightly agape, and there were respectively black, white, blue, yellow, and green flames shimmering within.
The azure humanoid figure sitting at the very center of the chamber had his palms almost joined together in front of his chest, and there was a ball of indistinct purple flames burning between his hands.
This humanoid figure was none other than Han Li, who had been seclusion for an indeterminate number of years.
All of a sudden, silver light flashed on the wall, and another azure humanoid figure appeared within the restriction, standing next to the wall in a completely stationary manner.

Now that it had suddenly appeared here, something important that had to be brought to his attention must've happened.
Han Li felt this to be rather strange. After all, the second Nascent Soul paired with the humanoid puppet was not inferior in power to a normal great cultivator, so what could've happened that even it wasn't able to take care of? With that in mind, he immediately swept his spiritual sense toward the humanoid puppet and began to assimilate with the second Nascent Soul's spiritual sense.
After around 15 minutes had passed, a peculiar look appeared on Han Li's face. The stationary humanoid puppet suddenly raised a hand before pulling an item out of the storage pouch hanging from its waist, then calmly handing it over to Han Li. Han Li immediately ac
