Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 564: Neptune Horn
Everyone was very tense. Ye Chuan who was directly facing Octopus Empress however was calm without any change in his expression. He just looked at the Octopus Empress who was releasing string killing intent and indifferently said, “The restriction of Lost City gets weak once every one hundred years, Your Excellency Sea Emperor, if you wait for another one hundred years, naturally, another group of people will come, but, no one might necessarily be able to arrive here passing through many ancient grave worlds.”
Octopus Empress who was preparing to make a move suddenly stiffened.
Yes, there were countless ancient graves here and every ancient grave world had many treasures sealed within them. A hundred years later, even if people came in, who could resist the temptation of treasures and not break into those grave worlds? In the end, how many would be able to arrive here?
Octopus Empress remained silent, but her killing intent gradually dispersed.
Even Qing Tianhou and State Teacher Jiang Tunsheng, these two super experts, were trapped in the sixth grave’s Reincarnation World. Looking from this perspective, in the entire Wilderness World, there were not many people that would be able to arrive in this final seventh grave.
Ye Chuan secretly sighed in relief. Although he seemed to have acted recklessly, in fact, he had carefully considered everything and seized the weakness of this Octopus Empress. Like this, the latter didn’t dare to kill him easily.
Sure enough, everything went according to his expectation!
This Octopus Empress was very powerful, she was the existence that could summon winds and rain in the outside world as she pleased, unfortunately, the ancient restrictions and rune chains had trapped her in this ancient grave world. No matter how powerful she was, she needed the help of other people to gather the remaining fragments of Lost City. Although the cultivation of Ye Chuan was not up to much, even inferior to Qing Tianhou and Jiang Tunsheng, among the numerous experts that broke in this time, he was already outstanding. In terms of cultivation level, he was no match for some powerful overseas loose cultivators, but in terms of experience, wits and courage, he was far above everyone. This point could be seen from how Plague Archfiend and Diamond Ape King, these two half Sage realm experts, were sincerely following him.
The ancient restriction would become loose once every one hundred years, but she might not necessarily encounter the right candidate even after waiting for thousands of years!
The expression of Octopus Empress changed repeatedly as she hesitated to make the decision. She was naturally unwilling to release Zhu Sijia and Tuoba Xiaoniao just like this. Without a hostage with value, how could she control Ye Chuan? But, she was also reluctant to kill Ye Chuan. No one knew better than her how hard it was to find a suitable candidate. In this ancient grave world, she had been bitterly waiting for countless years, she couldn’t wait to go out and breathe the fresh air outside. If she missed this opportunity, then she might never get another chance to go out throughout her life.
“Your Excellency Sea Emperor, let them go, I am not afraid of becoming your hostage, what are you afraid of?” Ye Chuan took a step forward again, leaving only the distance of seven steps between them.
Fight or not fight?
Looking at inattentive and hesitating Octopus Empress, Ye Chuan also hesitated, but he circulated eleven Heaven Swallowing Talismans within his body, preparing to make a move!
If he made a surprise attack now, it was possible to save Tuoba Xiaoniao and Zhu Sijia, but there was a bigger possibility that his attack would fail, then, all of them would face the wrath of this Octopus Empress.
After considering for a moment, Ye Chuan secretly sighed and his killing intent gradually dispersed.
He was never afraid of taking risks, but, he would also never take meaningless risks. When the probability of success was too low, forcibly making a move might attract greater disaster.
“Boy, since you are so sensible and somewhat know yourself, I will let them go.”
Octopus Empress released Zhu Sijia and Tuoba Xiaoniao with a smile yet not a smile. Then, extended a tentacle towards Ye Chuan.
She had already sensed Ye Chuan secretly preparing to attack. If Ye Chuan had made the move, then there was only one consequence. No one would leave alive from this ancient grave world. Fortunately, although Ye Chuan was daring, he was sensible.
“Big Senior Apprentice Brother……”
Old Demon of Mount Yin and others were anxious. Some people rushed over to support Zhu Sijia and Tuoba Xiaoniao, but even more took out their weapon and emitted dense killing intent. Seeing Ye Chuan was caught by Octopus Empress, they toughed their scalp and prepared to rush forward.
“Step back, without my order, no one is allowed to move!”
Ye Chuan shouted and let the tentacle of this Octopus Empress coil around him.
“Good, good, boy, you truly didn’t disappoint this lord, hahaha……”
Octopus Empress laughed heartily and suddenly pulled Ye Chuan over. Then, placing her lips on the lips of Ye Chuan, she blew a mouthful of her essence qi into Ye Chuan. Instantly, majestic energy circulated a lap within the body of Ye Chuan and settled in his dantian. Then, its form continuously changed, and after a little while, it unexpectedly condensed into a new octopus-shaped Heaven Swallowing Talisman!
With her great cultivation and unfathomable technique, Octopus Empress unexpectedly learned and condensed a new Heaven Swallowing Talisman within Ye Chuan’s body.
The energy fluctuation of Ye Chuan also suddenly rose sharply. He broke through to peak Daoist Master realm from Rank 7 Daoist Master realm. And with 12 Heaven Swallowing Talismans, now he could exert the strength of 216,000 jin. This surge of power and cultivation made other people feel endless envy. But, Ye Chuan was not happy, he even felt chill down his back.
This twelfth Heaven Swallowing Talisman was not condensed via his own accumulation, rather this Octopus Empress had used a powerful technique to forge. Not to mention he wouldn’t be able to use this power as he pleased, it was also the killing move Octopus Empress left behind in his body. If he was not careful, this Heaven Swallowing Talisman might harm him. What was even more terrifying was, she had learned and condensed a Heaven Swallowing Talisman, doesn’t that mean that Yao Refining Heaven Swallowing Secrets was also……
Ye Chuan sweated profusely. After he freed himself from God Burial Valley, Yao Refining Heaven Swallowing Secrets was his life technique, moreover, also his greatest secret. Once one’s life technique was comprehended and understood clearly by others, then it was over. That was far more dangerous than just being unable to control one Heaven Swallowing Talisman!
“Boy, what cultivation technique do you cultivate? It’s not particularly good, and these talismans are also somewhat strange……” Octopus Empress asked, seemingly lost in thought as she used her powerful divine sense to thoroughly scan Ye Chuan, wanting to see through all his secrets.
Upon hearing what was said, Ye Chuan secretly felt relieved. He understood that this Octopus Empress had just seen the surface. She didn’t have any time to comprehend the Yao Refining Heaven Swallowing Secrets behind Heaven Swallowing Talismans. Thus, he casually said, “This is Cyan Feather Secrets, a secret technique passed down only within our Cloud Mist Sect.”
“Cloud Mist Sect? Tens of thousands of years ago, I seemed to have heard one person saying that it was an ancient sect of the mainland, no wonder!”
Octopus Empress nodded her head and was no longer interested in interrogating Ye Chuan. She was only worried about the fragments lost in the outside world. She paused for a moment, then took out a horn with black light circulation around it from her bosom. It was somewhat similar to the ancient conch. But, its energy fluctuation was clearly far more powerful. “Boy, now you are already in Peak Daoist Master realm, even if you encounter a great expert, you will not suffer a big loss. This is Neptune Horn, it is a peerless treasure left behind by the first ancestor of Sea Demon Clan. Take it. Later, the faster you gather all the remaining fragments, the better. Also, in order to not let you forget your task, the Octopus Talisman within your body will remind you often. Once every three days, you will taste the pain I am suffering in this ancient grave world. When all the fragments of Lost City are collected, you will be free from that pain, now leave, hahahaha……”
Octopus Empress laughed heartily, then she walked into the sea and disappeared. Only her laughter echoed in the ears of everyone.
“Neptune Horn? Our clan record was truly correct, this treasure was really sealed in this ancient grave world!”
Sea Demon Patriarch exclaimed in joy. Looking at Neptune Horn in the hands of Ye Chuan, he subconsciously rushed over in great excitement. Zhu Sijia and Tuoba Xiaoniao nevertheless were worried and rushed over to Ye Chuan with tears streaming down their eyes. Everyone had clearly heard the words said by Octopus Empress just before she left. Now, the two of them were free, but Ye Chuan had to suffer pain.
