Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 500: The sound of Conch
After looking at that ghastly tomb passage, Ye Chuan thanked his good luck and slowly calmed down.
The broken Dragon Headed Flying Crossbow showed that Zhu Sijia and her party had indeed entered this grave. Perhaps, they were accidentally trapped in or they might have intentionally entered it. Even the accompanying Sea Demon Patriarch might not know where exactly was the Lost City located, thus they were exploring and searching all graves. Since even he alone could break out of the trap, Zhu Sijia’s party was large in number, moreover, there was cunning Sea Demon Patriarch leading the way. Although they might be in danger, it wouldn’t be easy to trap them.
After thinking carefully, Ye Chuan’s heart eased a bit.
Originally, after he was suddenly teleported into this tall mountain with ancient graves everywhere, he was worried, worried about the safety of Zhu Sijia, Tuoba Xiaoniao, Little Long’er and others. Now that he understood the circumstances inside the ancient grave, he finally had a bit of peace of mind. It was very likely that Zhu Sijia, Sea Demon Patriarch and others were looking for the specific location of Lost City in the front shrouded with dense mist. Or they might have even met with Old Demon of Mount Yin, Rain Demon and Plague Archfiend Abasi and waiting for him to catch up.
But, Ye Chuan discarded the thoughts of advancing. He calmly sat cross-legged on the spot and summoned twelve human faced snakes and Six-Winged Golden Cicada to guard him. He then carefully examined the conch he found inside this ancient grave.
This conch that fell from the body of that sand demon was black in color and a black light was floating around it. Even at first glance, it looked very old. And holding it in his palm, he could feel majestic energy fluctuation, clearly was a rare ancient treasure.
Ye Chuan carefully sized it up for a while and began to refine it.
In such a dangerous place, if he was able to strengthen his cultivation, then it would be the best as that might save his life at the critical moment.
Although Ye Chuan was worried about Zhu Sijia, Tuoba Xiaoniao, Little Long’er and others, and he wanted to join them as soon as possible, he didn’t forget the true purpose of this trip.
This time, he came to the sea with Sea Demon Patriarch because he wanted to find the opportunity to improve his cultivation in the racial holy land of Sea Demon Clan. And after accidentally falling into the ancient city inside the grave, he obtained this conch that fell from that sand demon, this was also a kind of fortune. After refining this conch, not only he had an additional protective treasure, his might also make a breakthrough in his cultivation.
In the later stage of cultivation realms, the progress would be slower and slower. Even the seclusion cultivation for a thousand years might be inferior to encountering a fortune during the journey to temper oneself.
At this moment, what Ye Chuan was missing was a lucky chance.
The experience and knowledge of his previous life was his greatest asset. As long as he had a lucky encounter, he could have a huge breakthrough in his cultivation without any problem.
A layer of blood-red light gradually appeared in the midst of the black light floating around the conch, then it became boiling hot.
Ye Chuan used the technique and seizing this chance, he dripped a few drops of essence blood, then spat out a mouthful of life yuan qi. After that, the conch trembled violently, signaling the successful refining of this treasure. Now, compared to before, there was a hint of red color in this black conch with many lines on the surface.
Every Weapon Refining Master would leave a unique mark on the treasures they refined, Ye Chuan was no exception. After grasping Yao Refining Heaven Swallowing Secrets, this ancient cultivation technique he accidentally found in God Burial Valley, in the treasures he refined, he would leave behind blood-red lines as his unique mark. These lines were unique, and with his deeper understanding of this cultivation technique, his cultivation would rise and the lines would be more profound. Like that, it would be even harder for other people to erase his mark. In order words, even if he lost this conch and it landed in the hands of other people, it wouldn’t be easy to refine it.
Immediately after successfully refining this conch, majestic pure energy coming out of this conch entered the body of Ye Chuan from his fingertips.
Then, the energy fluctuation of Ye Chuan suddenly rose and another qi cyclone appeared in his dantian. This was the sign of new Heaven Swallowing Talisman condensing.
This majestic pure energy continuously poured into Ye Chuan’s body, and slowly, Ye Chuan trembled. Now, every inch of his muscles contained violent power. His skin, qi and blood rippled and his bones creaked as a demonic dragon phantom appeared behind Ye Chuan as if he was about to transform into a dragon and ascend to heaven. The sign of breaking through was getting clearer and clearer, unfortunately, after half an incense time, the energy coming from the conch gradually depleted and the trembling body of Ye Chuan also slowly simmered down. He was unable to make a breakthrough.
His cultivation realm was unchanged, still was rank 6 Daoist Master realm, and there was only ten Heaven Swallowing Talismans within his dantian with the addition of one new qi cyclone. But, he was unable to successfully condense a new Heaven Swallowing Talisman.
Unfortunately, this was still not enough!
The eyes of Ye Chuan blazed like torches. After examining the changes within his body, he felt it was a pity. He then rested for a while, and placing the conch in front of his mouth, he gently blew it, and the sound of conch traveled forward, spreading further away, piercing through this dense mist.
The world suddenly seemed to become still.
When the sound of this conch resounded, the twelve human faced snakes and Six-Winged Golden Cicada clustered around Ye Chuan became motionless and drowsy. Even their breathing seemed to have stopped as if the time had stopped.
What a powerful sound attack!
Ye Chuan was pleasantly surprised and he suddenly recalled the unique skill of Hai Lili, the song of Sea Demon. The sound of this conch had a similar effect!
The treasures sealed in the racial holy land were truly extraordinary!
Ye Chuan was excited. He carefully examined the conch in his hand and the more he looked at it, the more he liked it.
A light rustling sound came from the distant place. Since this mountain was shrouded with dense grey mist, he was unable to see and also unable to sense the danger. Fortunately, Ye Chuan had a pair of sharp ears.
Was it skeleton soldiers crawled out from underground, or a yao beast that came out to look for a prey, or……
Ye Chuan didn’t dare to be careless, and quickly thought about ferocious Qing Tianhou and State Teacher Jiang Tunsheng. These two people were the most powerful people after his reincarnation. His current cultivation was far inferior to Plague Archfiend Abasi, Ghost King Dusen, Blacksnake Demon God and other similar level Half Sage realm experts, and their scheming and strategies were even more powerful. Once they quietly arrived beside him without anybody knowing, then he would certainly die!
The twelve human faced snakes were nervous. As for the Six-Winged Golden Cicada resting on the shoulder of Ye Chuan, it quietly flew away under the instruction of Ye Chuan.
Old Demon of Mount Yin, Rain Demon and Plague Archfiend Abasi were his strongest followers. But, since they were absent at this moment, Ye Chuan switched to fully utilizing all other yao beasts, and when necessary, he even prepared to summon Super Electric Eel. Although its strength would be greatly reduced on land, it was still ferocious.
At the same time, the sound of conch resounded again.
The Six-Winged Golden Cicada quietly scouted under the cover of the grey mist, but Ye Chuan continued to sit cross-legged on the same spot while calmly initiating the sound attack.
As the former Heaven Concealing Great Sage, he was not unfamiliar with sound attacks. He quickly grasped the technique of this conch. This time, he attempted to add manipulation with the sound of conch, aiming at the direction from where the rustling sounds had come.
The rustling sounds quickly stopped. Although the human faced snakes around Ye Chuan were not greatly affected, the thing in the midst of dense mist was clearly affected by this surprise attack. Next, a painful groan resounded as Six-Winged Golden Cicada had initiated a ferocious attack.
“Stop, stop, Your……, Your Excellency, it’s me, it’s me, stop the sound……”
A familiar voice resounded and old demon Hei Kui who had possessed the puppet doll crawled and rolled over while screaming. There were several cuts on his body and because he had rolled and crawled on the ground, his body was full of mud. He looked very battered and exhausted. In addition, looking at the conch in the hands of Ye Chuan, his eyes were full of fear.
Originally, he wanted to surprise Ye Chuan, but the result was this tragedy.
When he heard the sound of conch, he felt dizzy and he was unable to tell which direction was where, thus he was unable to block the attacks of Six-Winged Golden Cicada. If it was not for his rich experience and subconsciously guarding his vital parts, perhaps, he might have lost his head under the attack of Six-Winged Golden Cicada, becoming a headless puppet doll!
“Hei Kui, it turned out to be you, you have come at just the right time, how is this conch? Do you want to listen to another tune?” Seeing Hei Kui, Ye Chuan was somewhat surprised, soon after that, with an evil smile, he said, “A very long time ago, when I went to experience the secular world, I once disguised as a scholar and sneaked into a theatrical troupe and especially dedicated myself to sing opera. I cannot say that I was very outstanding, but I still know various kinds of tune.”
“No, please don’t bother, Your Excellency, where did this treasure come from?” Hei Kui shivered and hastily shook his head.
Just a moment ago, he personally experienced how powerful this conch was, if he listened to other tunes too, then would he still be alive?
Hei Kui was already respectful and also feared Ye Chuan, this master of his. Now, he was even more afraid and stood obediently at one side without any air.
