"Jin Tong, follow Fellow Daoist Blood Soul for now, and make sure to protect her," Han Li instructed.
The miniature figure offered no response to this, but it immediately teleported over to the blood soul, hovering in a stationary manner above her head.
The blood soul had witnessed Jin Tong in action on the way here, a grateful look immediately appeared on her face. "Thank you, Senior Han. With Senior Jin protecting me, my safety in this Heavenly Cauldron Palace will be ensured."
She then summoned a pristine white vial before offering it to Han Li with both hands.
This was a vial that contained a drop of the aforementioned blood essence.
"There are other people who have arrived here even earlier than we have, so we should split up and begin our search right away," Han Li said.
The blood soul gave an affirmative response, and thus, each of them flew toward a different cluster of buildings with Jin Tong following along closely behind the blood soul.
In order to venture deeper into the Heavenly Cauldron Palace, Han Li had to eradicate the restrictions of other areas that stood in his way.
Thus, as soon as he appeared before a white light barrier, he immediately made a grabbing motion to summon an azure longsword, which he slashed viciously toward the light barrier.
The white light barrier immediately shattered as if it were a piece of chinaware, following which the surrounding area blurred, and Han Li suddenly found himself on a path in a lush forest.
The trees around him were around 70 to 80 feet tall, and at first glance, they seemed to be no different from normal trees, but upon closer inspection, Han Li discovered that there was a series of twisted faces with their eyes tightly shut etched onto the surfaces of these trees.
There were faces of all types of descriptions, but all of them wore blissful expressions as if they were experiencing pleasant slumbers.
Han Li's eyes narrowed slightly upon seeing this, and right at this moment, an intoxicating floral scent suddenly wafted toward him from the other end of the path.
With his enormous spiritual sense, the aroma resulted in nothing more than slight mental discomfort following inhalation.
A faint smile appeared on Han Li's face, and he knew that he was situated in some type of profound restriction. He immediately began to advance along the path, but after taking no more than 20 steps, the faces on all of the trees on either side of him suddenly opened their eyes in unison.
Inky-black threads of light then shot forth from those eyes, every single one of which was extremely sharp and giving off peculiar energy fluctuations.
In response to this, Han Li simply conjured up a grey light barrier that shielded him from all sides.
