Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 536: Underground Square
“This person has also died from the surprise attack of that unknown yao beast.”
The old devil walked forward and looking at the shocking wounds of this sea demon warrior, he said, “Your Excellency, do you recognize this sea demon warrior? Or to say, you and Sea Demon Clan……”
Subconsciously, the old devils suddenly recalled an ancient legend of the nearby sea areas.
According to the legend, the ancestor of Sea Demon Clan had left behind a sentence when they left their racial holy land. The holy land of Sea Demon Clan is already lost, but one day, under the leadership of an ancient sage, Sea Demon Clan will rise again and return to regain control over their holy land, becoming the master of the Lost City.
Was the reincarnated Ye Chuan that legendary ancient sage?
The old devil Zhong Moli was shocked thinking about the true identity of Ye Chuan.
Originally, he firmly believed that Ye Chuan was the legendary Taishang Elder of Thunderbolt Sect, but after following Ye Chuan, he slowly discovered that Ye Chuan was far beyond his expectation. His current cultivation realm was not high, but his insights and means were far beyond what ordinary experts could display. Although Taishang Elder of Thunderbolt Sect was powerful and had already broken through to Half Sage realm several thousand years ago, he was still not considered an ancient sage!
“Yes, sea demon warriors and I are working together. Merely, in Bellowing Waves Island, I was responsible to deal with the army under Qing Tianhou and the sea demon warriors had left a step ahead.” Ye Chuan honestly told his relation with Sea Demon Clan. And while speaking, he placed the ice-cold corpse of sea demon warrior on the ground. He then suddenly stood up and said, “Let’s go, Zhong Moli, we are rushing forward!”
Ye Chuan made a prompt decision. Without even burying the corpse of the sea demon warrior, he rushed forward in his fastest speed. And the old devil closely followed behind.
Ye Chuan was worried about the safety of Zhu Sijia, Tuoba Xiaoniao, Little Long’er and others. He circulated Heaven Swallowing Talismans within his body and accelerated again and again, eventually, only his afterimages could be seen. His speed was faster than a flying sword. Even peak Daoist Master realm expert, the old devil Zhong Moli, was barely able to keep up the pace. And the more time passed, the more shocked he became upon witnessing the speed of Ye Chuan.
All along the way, the two people encountered more and more corpses.
Some had died from a chaotic battle with many wounds and some had died from the surprise attack of that unknown yao beast with a fist-sized bloody hole in their stomach. Among these corpses, some were empty-handed, but some still held flying swords, arm guards and so on treasures. Those treasures were flashing with distinctive cyan radiance. It seemed that they were the treasures seized from this underground cave. Unfortunately, life was necessary to enjoy a treasure. There were also some who had yet to die completely, they were crawling with great difficulty, hoping to leave this grave. Unfortunately, with a serious injury on their stomach and intestines hanging out, they only had one last breath. They were doomed to become a ghost of this grave.
Ye Chuan was tense. The more corpses and seriously injured people he saw, the more uneasy he felt, and he was dying to immediately find Zhu Sijia and others and join them. Along the way, he saw many treasures, but he didn’t stop. As a once Heaven Concealing Great Sage, Ye Chuan had seen all kinds of peerless treasures. Other than the treasures on the level of cyan flames or 18 Demongods Banner of Great Monarch Grave, other treasures didn’t even enter his eyes.
As for the old devil following behind him, his eyes were red. He wanted to stop and grab those treasures of numerous victims, but seeing Ye Chuan was not stopping and was even increasing his speed, he was forced to suppress the allure of those treasures and keep up the pace.
After running wildly for more than one hours, a huge underground open space appeared in front of them, or to say, was a huge underground square.
In the square, there were over 100 meters tall stone pillars standing in large numbers. There was a majestic restriction fluctuation in the air. And upon the careful look, one could see that there were many pits on those stone pillars. Those were the places where treasures were sealed. At first glance, one could see that there were numerous stone pillars, and countless treasures were sealed within those stone pillars. It seemed that there were more treasures here compared to the Great Monarch Grave. Unfortunately, when Ye Chuan and the old devil arrived here, most of the treasures of the stone pillars were already taken away.
There were corpses everywhere in the square. Among them, there were the corpses of loose cultivators, devils and also a kind of yao beast similar to apes and monkeys. They were not tall, only half the height of an adult human, but their claws had long nails which were curved like sharp iron hooks. Just looking at them, one’s scalp would tingle. It seemed that the bloody holes on the stomach of the corpses they had encountered along the way were the doing of these yao beasts.
After hesitation for a bit, Ye Chuan stepped into this underground square. He carefully looked around while walking. He wanted to look for any trace of Zhu Sijia and others. But, although there were many corpses on the ground, even after walking for a while, he didn’t see any trace of the disciples of Cloud Mist Sect and the sea demon warriors.
“Your Excellency, look over there!”
The old devil suddenly yelled. Ye Chuan turned around and looked towards the direction the old devil was pointing.
He saw a golden pillar. Unlike other stone pillars, not only was it distinctive in color, it was also engraved with many runes on the surface. Other stone pillars had at least ten pits where treasures were sealed, but this golden stone pillar only had one pit. Moreover, the restriction fluctuation it emitted was the strongest. Unfortunately, the pit on it was empty. The treasure sealed in it was already taken away by someone and there was a time and space gate beside this stone pillar. And with the sharp eyes of Ye Chuan, he noticed a golden arrow near the time and space gate.
“We are late!”
Ye Chuan walked over, and picking up this golden arrow, he placed it in his Cyan Lotus Lamp after examining it.
Among the numerous experts that had broken into this racial holy land of Sea Demon Clan, there were not many who used a bow as their weapon. And there was only one person who used this kind of rare golden arrow. He was State teacher Jiang Tunsheng who was above millions and below one in Daqin Dynasty!
Since Jiang Tunsheng was here, would the other super expert Qing Tianhou miss this opportunity?
Ye Chuan looked around, and sure enough, not long after, he noticed a stone pillar that was cut into two. The cut was clean, clearly cut by a blade slash. In addition, there was also a deep groove on the ground near this stone pillar, that was left behind by a powerful blade slash. It was definitely the handiwork of Qing Tianhou, sure enough, he was also here. Then, both of these experts had left hurriedly like a gust of wind. As for the treasure sealed within this golden stone pillar, Ye Chuan didn’t know who obtained it.
A rustling sound suddenly resounded.
Ye Chuan and the old devil looked up and discovered that they were surrounded by over a hundred apes like yao beasts without anybody knowing. In addition, even more were rushing over from afar, not from the ground, rather they were jumping from one stone pillar to another. They were coming from all direction. They didn’t have any weapon in their hands, but each of them had terrifying sharp claws. Those claws were so sharp that they left behind a mark on the stone pillar when they just grabbed it. One should know that those stone pillars were hard enough to be impervious to ordinary flying swords.
