Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 495: Unexpected discovery
This unexpected discovery made Ye Chuan more cautious. He carefully advanced with 12 human-faced snakes around him.
The mist was getting thicker and thicker. Now, the matter that concerned him the most wasn’t Qing Tianhou and State Teacher Jiang Tunsheng catching up, but was this unknown world.
A ripple suddenly appeared in the dense mist ahead, and old devil Hei Kui quickly rushed over. He appeared panicked as if he encountered something terrifying. And perhaps, he was too nervous, or perhaps, he had run too fast, he was unable to speak for a moment.
“Hei Kui, what’s wrong?” Ye Chuan stopped and spread out his divine sense, but he sensed nothing. It was still very quiet around as if the entire world was a huge grave.
“Your……, Your Excellency, come over and take a look……, you will know it.” After taking a few deep breaths, old devil Hei Kui finally recovered his breathing and said with deep fear.
“Walk, lead the way!”
Seeing this old devil Hei Kui so scared, Ye Chuan also became nervous. But, he forcibly calmed down and instructed Hei Kui to lead the way forward. And not long after, they arrived at a small hillside.
And like other places, this hillside was also filled with big and small graves. The old devil Hei Kui led Ye Chuan to the front of an ancient grave with fear and trepidation.
The front of this ancient grave was paved with grey brick and only the half section of its tombstone remained. The words carved on it was already mottled and it was unclear how old this grave was. But, unlike general graves, this ancient grave was already crack opened, or to say, had already been dug by people. At one side of the tombstone, there was a dark path leading downward. He didn’t know where it would lead.
“It is just a stolen ancient grave, Hei Kui, what is wrong with it?” Ye Chuan was somewhat confused. At first glance, there was nothing unusualness with this ancient grave, but what made Hei Kui so scared?
At that time, Hei Kui took out a lustrous pearl from who known where and illuminated the cracked open tomb passage, then said, “Your Excellency, look there!”
Ye Chuan stepped forward and upon a careful look, his hair involuntarily stood on end.
It was very clean without any skeleton outside the grave, but inside the dark tomb passage, there were many bones scattered all over, but, what was even more frightening was, on the ground and walls of this tomb passage, there were deep finger marks. What did this mean?
It meant that the remains inside this tomb had climbed out step by step before their death. A great amount of strength was used in every step as if something was pulling them from behind. But, the final result was, just when they were half a step away from the exit, not a single one was able to escape, all of them died.
Upon closer look, he could also see many flying swords, battle armors and other treasures scattered in this tomb passage. Their grade was also pretty good, all were extraordinary treasures. This showed that these deceased weren’t ordinary cultivators when they were alive. Among so many experts, not a single one was able to escape, what kind of terrifying things were there inside this grave? Also, what kind of things were they to attract these experts from different generations to break into this grave?
The eyes of Ye Chuan shone. He had discovered that the remains in the tomb passage were not all from the same time period. Some remains were even older than ten thousand years, this was incomprehensible.
A group of adventurers of the same period of time might have encountered something unexpected and died here, but all the adventurers of the different time period had also died here. This was not simple!
“Your Excellency, it is very dangerous here, we should leave quickly.”
Hei Kui was very nervous. His body was trembling.
Speaking about it, he was also an experienced great devil. As a former founder of Puppet Sect, he had slaughtered many and he had also stayed in the gloomy and terrifying Evil Dragon Abyss by himself for many years, so, according to reasons, nothing should frighten him, but seeing this strange ancient grave, he still couldn’t help trembling with fear.
As a devil who cultivated Puppet Technique, he was more sensitive to murky energy and restrictions, and now he was feeling a strong danger. If he could, then he truly wanted Ye Chuan to put him inside Cyan Lotus Space. He didn’t want to stay in this strange space for a moment.
An ancient racial holy land, average people think of it as a place like a paradise. The reality however was cruel. The true paradise-like racial holy lands were all guarded and hidden by their respective races. Outsiders would not know where they were located, and those that let outsider enter the racial holy land was even more dangerous than ominous domains!
“Okay, let’s go!”
Ye Chuan nodded his head. Although he was doubtful and curious in his heart, he also didn’t dare to rashly charge in. But, just when he was about to turn around and leave, he suddenly saw a somewhat familiar thing. He then took the luminescent pearl from the hands of Hui Kui and illuminated further inside the tomb passage. Then, looked further inside the tomb passage. And at the depth where the luminescent pear could barely illuminate, he saw a damaged Dragon Headed Flying Crossbow.
This Dragon Headed Flying Crossbow was already damaged beyond recognition, only some parts were left, but Ye Chuan could still recognize it. How could he forget the thing he had personally refined?
There was a Dragon Headed Flying Crossbow in the tomb passage, what did this explain?
The complexion of Ye Chuan changed greatly and stopped his step.
There were just a hundred or so Dragon Headed Flying Crossbows, and only the elites of Cloud Mist Sect’s disciples were equipped with it. These elite disciples were the future hope of Cloud Mist Sect and also were Ye Chuan, this Big Disciple’s absolutely trusted subordinates. In addition, they were ordered to follow Zhu Sijia in this operation.
The heart of Ye Chuan sank, and his face stretched taut.
When he was just teleported to this world, he was worried that he was teleported to somewhere else but not teleported to Lost City due to some problems in ancient transmission formation. Moreover, he worried that he lost contact with Zhu Sijia and others. But now, seeing the damaged Dragon Headed Flying Crossbow in the tomb passage, he preferred that the ancient transmission formation was faulty.
“Your Excellency, what’s the matter?” Hei Kui asked. He had already turned around and walked a few steps, but seeing Ye Chuan wasn’t following, he had a very bad premonition in his heart.
“Hei Kui, since you leave Evil Dragon Abyss with me, how do you feel?” Ye Chuan didn’t reply, instead asked.
“Very good, I was finally able to leave that goddamned place without sunlight. The Cyan Lotus Space is also pretty good, I can quietly cultivate there. After ten years, I will be able to reconstruct a mortal body and set foot on peak Daoist Master realm again, and rebuild Puppet Sect!” Hei Kui subconsciously answered, and after speaking, he suddenly felt that the question of Ye Chuan was somewhat unusual. It was clearly not the time to talk about this. His heart suddenly sank, “Your……, Your Excellency, you…… what do you want me to do?”
“Nothing much, just explore the way.”
Ye Chuan smiled. This made this old devil Hei Kui sigh in relief. But the next words made him feel as if he sank into an ice cave. “Go and see if there is any danger in this tomb passage. See that Dragon Headed Flying Crossbow in the tomb passage, bring it back to me.”
“Your Excellency, no, I won’t go.” Hei Kui shook his head and refused firmly.
So many experts of ancient times had died in this tomb passage, one could well imagine how dangerous it was. If he just entered like this, was there any difference to courting death?
“Fine, I will go then, you can stay here to reinforce, but, if Qing Tianhou and State Teacher Jiang Tunsheng, those two Half Sage realm experts catch up, they will definitely sense my aura on your body. And if you fall into their hands, then……” Ye Chuan didn’t force, but before he finished speaking, Hui Kui trembled more violently.
“Your Excellency, I will explore the way, you can reinforce from outside.”
Hei Kui raised the sharp dagger and entered the tomb passage bracing himself.
