“What’s Qian Zhuoxi doing over here?”
When they had left, Dongfang Minghui asked.
“I think she was deliberately looking for a fight, if you guys hadn’t come back in time, we’d all die here today.” Li Yunan and Qian Zhuoxi had exchanged blows, he knew every blow from the other side had hidden killing intent.
“Yes, we were waiting for you guys and they just rushed out.” Mu Sheng was ready to let Xiao Bai use some poisonous smoke, although he knew that that group of people had very high spiritual power, it was better than nothing.
“Meng Yixiao gives me a very strange feeling.” Bai Rou and Meng Yixiao crossed paths again, she’d always remained wary of him. After not seeing him for a few days, the other party’s spiritual power pressure vaguely suppressed her until she couldn’t move, it meant he was almost about to advance.
When it comes to Meng Yixiao, Dongfang Minghui remembered the other party’s long silver-white flowing hair, Dongfang Minghui secretly pondered, “Seventh Sister, I saw in the mirror of the three worlds that the people of the Dark Elf clan all have long silvery hair, like Meng Yixiao, do you think he may be someone from the Elf clan?”
Meng Yixiao looks feminine, and his features were quite delicate, with that long hair as well, if his eye colour was the same as Lu Xing’s he’d look exactly like a living Elf.
“Impossible.” Lu Xing retorted loudly, he had just been stimulated by Minghui and Wanyu’s secret, and now he heard about the elves. His emotions were inevitably a little out of control, he saw everyone looking at him and felt he was showing a little too much reaction, so he explained in a low voice, “The elves are simple and kind by nature, they do not compete with the world, a bad person like Meng Yixiao can’t appear from them…”
If Meng Yixiao was a member of the elven race, it would simply tarnish the beautiful symbol of the elves.
“Pfft.” Situ Hao was drinking water and almost choked because of Lu Xing’s sentence, “Lu Xing you are too stupid, there are good and bad people among humans, elves will naturally also have – ouch, what are you doing?!”
Bai Ruo kicked him.
Dongfang Minghui coughed dryly and explained in a low voice, “Lu Xing, I was just guessing.”
“Oh…” Lu Xing was also secretly annoyed at having talked too much.
Everyone looked at each other, Dongfang Minghui still did not know that when they fell into the cold pool, the mirror of the three worlds had mapped out everyone’s real reflection, Lu Xing’s identity as an elf was known to everyone know aside from Mu Sheng and Wood.
“Whether Meng Yixiao is an elf we’ll just need to test him and see.” Qian Wanyu quickly concluded.
The group of people set off again.
Dongfang Minghui pulled Qian Wanyu to the side, the two slowly walked to the end of the group, “Seventh sister, do we want to enter the fourth peak unnoticed?”
Although the third and fourth peaks seem to be very close, there was an insurmountable rift, if she did not follow Qian Yiling and Uncle Wood, she might also have been naive enough to think they could get to it easily.
As for the first time she went into the fourth peak, she had been carried on the shoulders of Uncle Wood and couldn’t tell which way was which. She also couldn’t tell from all the grass and mountain terrain.
“The fourth peak?”
Dongfang Minghui saw Seventh sister’s face of confusion, her heart couldn’t help but slow, was Seventh sister someone who had no plan to sneak into the back of the Qian Family’s mountains? She did not believe it, “Seventh sister, do you have any better plans?”
Qian Wanyu’s original plan was very simple but she was afraid that she would scare Ninth Sister if she said it, so she simply continued to walk forward with a serious face.
After spending so much time with Seventh sister, Dongfang Minghui was still not able to clearly read every expression on Seventh sister’s face or even guess every intention of Seventh sister’s actions, but she knew one thing if Seventh sister didn’t do anything or didn’t prepare for anything it wasn’t Seventh sister.
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes drifted down and slightly narrowed to look at her, “Seventh sister, you just fought with Qian Zhuoxi, is it that you want to take advantage of this opportunity to find her and…”
And find a place where no one could see. She was referring to targeting her and swallowing her power and vitality with Dark Spiritual Power.
This was perfectly in line with Seventh sister’s personality right?
Qian Wanyu suddenly stopped in her tracks when she heard this and gave Dongfang Minghui a deep look. She suddenly smiled as she reached out and rubbed a hand on her hair, “Let’s go, we’ll go to the fourth peak as you said.”
When Aunt Mo approached her before, she learned from Aunt Mo about the matter of the Qian Family back mountain inheritance. Each generation of the Qian Family’s extremely talented descendants were allowed to enter the Qian Family back mountain to win the inheritance.
Back then, Qian Yiling and Qian Ziyan had this qualification but the Qian Family accident caused the two to suddenly disappear. After failing to find them, the inheritance of the Qian Family patriarch fell to Qian Zihang and Qian Xianjun. They both had similar talents and aptitudes, even after going into the back mountain they were involved in the inheritance. Who knows what method Qian Zihang who had a weak presence in the Qian Family used to become the head of the Qian Family.
Qian Zhuoxi hated her because of this. First, she found someone to follow her and tentatively she found someone to find fault. Qian Zhuoxi was just worried that she would take the place she has now. The other party hadn’t made any major moves in the Qian Family merely because everyone was afraid of the Qian Family’s ancestor, the old lady.
It’s not the same when they both entered the back mountain of the Qian Family, she was sure this journey wouldn’t be too peaceful.
But, for Qian Wanyu, the more the opponent blocked her, the stronger her determination to obtain the Qian Family inheritance.
“Hey, what are you two talking about?”
Situ Hao asked impatiently, the two sisters whispered so many words to each other. He simply couldn’t describe the strange way of getting along between the two sisters and cheekily shamelessly came up to say, “Minghui, what is it that you cannot say to your senior brother?”
Seeing his face, Dongfang Minghui had a disgusted look and blocked it with her hand, “Senior sister Bai, please control senior brother Situ.”
Bai Rou, carrying a big sword stood aside to watch the good show.
“There is indeed one thing to say to everyone.”
Qian Wanyu wanted to kick Situ Hao away, she could still remember this guy stalked Ninth Sister for some time before, now look, he was more and more of an eyesore.
“We’ll talk while walking.”
Qian Wanyu just began to talk about the fourth peak details when…
A group of people rushed out from the opposite side, “Run, run.”
Every one of them was bruised and battered, some of them even fell to the ground halfway through their run, foaming at the mouth and dead. Those who hurriedly fled just stepped on each other’s bodies as they scattered to run as if something was chasing them.
Seeing this, Bai Rou pulled one of the people who were fleeing, “What’s happening?”
“Run, it’s a swarm of man-eating bees!”
The man did not have time to say in detail, as soon as he finished, he slipped out of her grasp and ran away, Bai Ruo wanted to drag him back but failed, but at least now they knew what had scared all of them.
“Man-eating bees?” Dongfang Minghui automatically understood the last two words, she squatted in front of the long-dead people who were also stepped on, using a leaf to wrap some white foam from their mouths she muttered, “They don’t seem to have died of poison.”
Most likely, they scared themselves to death…
Qian Wanyu wanted to say that man-eating bees had no poison but suddenly saw a strong and powerful black whirlwind sweeping from a long way away, in the blink of an eye they were almost eye to eye with it.
Before Li Yunan and others had time to react, they were pulled by a pair of hands. Seeing this strange black whirlwind come out of nowhere, Qian Wanyu was even too late to set up a formation to resist, she could only let Qing Mo make a boundary to resist it.
Wherever the black whirlwind went, people turned into white bones.
Those who were escaping screamed in terror but their two legs couldn’t outrun this black tornado. In the twinkling of an eye, everything was gone.
“I’m scared to death.”
Situ Hao was half a beat slower than another person to react and he watched the young man who just fled from them turn into white bones on the ground, “Thanks to you Wanyu, otherwise, our lives would have been lost as well… how is this wind so powerful?”
Dongfang Minghui muttered, “It’s not wind.”
He tried to throw a light beam but the only result was two small corpses on the ground. This time Dongfang Minghui guessed right, these things lying on the ground were bees, no, slightly bigger than bees, but their whole body was blood red and looked very scary.
“These should be the man-eating bees that those people were talking about just now.”
Everyone had long experienced the blood-sucking moths from sharp knife mountain, now these cannibal bees were similar to the moths, but seemed a hundred times more powerful. The moths would only come sniffing after seeing blood, how about these bees? They seemed to have eyes that tracked people and targeted them.
Any group of people targeted by them only had a dead end.
They watched from the boundary as the people who had just fled, one by one, kept their fleeing posture before being gnawed to bones by the cannibalistic bees. Soon, they all disappeared from view.
Mu Sheng and the others drew a breath of cold air, that was the end of it.
“They seem to have gone.”
The swarm came and went easily. Everything happened in a matter of a few breaths.
“Don’t go out, for now, wait a little longer.”
“Did that group of people take something from them?” Dongfang Minghui couldn’t help but speculate. Whenever a treasure of heaven came out, there was always something guarding it. Maybe someone moved something that shouldn’t be moved. Only that would provoke these sort of bees.
After another incense stick of time, Qian Wanyu used her spiritual power to probe the surrounding area and then removed the boundary.
“Seventh sister, do we want to go over and take a look?”
Dongfang Minghui pointed to the direction where the group of people who had fled had come from.
“Go, let’s see what kind of treasure released this swarm of man-eating bees.”
The few obeyed the many so they followed the path, finding many oddly shaped empty white skeletons, just like those who had been gnawed down to nothing by the bees before their eyes. After walking for almost another hour, they saw a cave from afar.
“Look.” Situ Hao pointed to a tall cave in front, it looked a little taller than a grown man’s height, with some gold and silver jewels scattered around. There were messy footsteps on the ground and bodies strewn around, all of which showed that a fight had just been experienced here.
Qian Wanyu held the water thunder whip tightly in her left hand and tugged Dongfang Minghui with her other hand, “Everyone go in and be careful.”
Everyone tacitly chose to work in groups of two.
They were the first to enter the cave, which was very bright contrary to what they imagined in their minds, the bright light was the road leading directly to the front, there were very beautiful stone flowers carved on the walls of the cave, spreading all the way to where the light was shining.
“These flowers are so beautiful.”
“This is the everlasting flower, the flower blooms on top of the cliff face. Their growth usually means immortality.” Qing Mo said in her soul sea, “It’s better to be careful.”
“Seventh sister, this shouldn’t be just a passage, right?”
The light was bright, towards the end it was like they were the only ones left in the whole world. Their surroundings became different and Qian Wanyu felt like she was walking in a volcano, a burning heat came to her face.
There was really something wrong with this passage.
“Close your eyes and hold your breath.”
“Ok Seventh sister.”
Dongfang Minghui obediently closed her eyes and tried to keep her breathing as steady as possible. Soon she felt a dark shadow flashing in front of her eyes, the light was not as bright as before, and she was just about to open her eyes when her palm was squeezed by Seventh sister’s hand.
They were holding hands and their spiritual energy was intertwined within their bodies, the two of them used their soul sea to communicate.
“There is something wrong with this cave, these lights should be illuminated by the fluorescent insects on the top layer of this stone roof, fluorescent insects usually emit bright lights at night.” This means that the cave was originally pitch black, Qian Wanyu used her inner vision to look at the entire cave, the cave stone walls in addition to the two sides of carved immortal flowers, the rest of the place was full of dense fluorescent insects, except for one place, which had no insects.
Fluorescent insects occasionally emitted powder falling down from above, these powders raised in the air when people walked in and stepped on the ground so people would absorb them unknowingly and get caught in an illusion.
The good thing was that the two people were connected spiritually, they could immediately digest the fluorescent powder absorbed into their body and identify the illusion. Otherwise… it may have been too late before walking straight into a volcano.
“Seventh sister, what about the rest?” Dongfang Minghui was worried, her and Seventh sister were ok but senior brother Situ and the rest were undoubtedly still affected.
“Don’t underestimate them.” Qian Wanyu’s only worry was the person beside her.
What’s more, sometime after they fell into the illusion, several people also disappeared elsewhere.
Qian Wanyu pulled Dongfang Minghui towards the only passage that was set into the stone wall, exactly like the pattern of the Immortal Flower, she reached out her hand and gently pushed the stone door open with ease. A long flight of steps extended out.
The ladder was extended step by step towards the bottom.
The two of them held hands, and Qian Wanyu tried to release her spiritual power to form a protective film but failed after several attempts.
“Seventh sister, what are you doing?”
Dongfang Minghui watched Qian Wanyu gather up a layer of spiritual power, which suddenly dispersed again, then gathered and dispersed again, and so on. She knew that the more you practice, the more you could release your spiritual power, and thus eventually cultivate your domain consisting of spiritual power. The higher the level, the stronger the domain.
However, Seventh sister wasn’t at the right stage to start this yet…
Qian Wanyu still did not believe she couldn’t do it and circulated spiritual power throughout her body. The spiritual power only slowly emerged from the palm of her hand holding the thunder whip. After her many attempts, the spiritual power covered her wrist.
Dongfang Minghui gulped her saliva, Seventh sister’s comprehension was too strong.
“Not good.” Qian Wanyu held on for a while but soon found that the spiritual power within her body was leaking out too fast, she hurriedly withdrew her spiritual power until it was only covering her small arm again.
“When you have enough spiritual energy in your body, you can try again.” Qing Mo said on the side.
Since Qing Mo mentioned it, her thoughts seem to be valid. Qian Wanyu tightened her grip on the water thunder whip, “Ninth Sister, see how Toothless’ situation is.”
She sensed a little movement in the small white tiger.
Toothless this guy was still lying on all fours in her space ring with its little belly breathing up and down, she could also hear a little snoring. Even pig fairy grass dancing on its belly was unaware of any change, “It is still sleeping, Seventh sister what’s wrong?”
Last time Toothless was awakened because of the fire spiritual power and had fallen asleep for a good period of time, this time it swallowed a ghost face fruit. The ghost face fruit was supposed to be a great tonic, she didn’t know how well it could digest it or how long it would take.
“Seventh sister, ask it-”
The little white tiger suddenly ran out from the space ring, before it could stand still, she saw it swooping forward and pounce towards something below from the steps.
Qian Wanyu unhurriedly found a few moonstones from her space ring and dropped two down, the moonstones had limited light but even with the weak light, they could see little white fighting with something.
It was a pack of hungry wolves with oozing green light in their eyes, and they were all dark black wolves.
Whew enjoy guys! Back to the office tomorrow so a quick one today~
