“The map given by Her Majesty should be fine.”
The three of them lost their way when they were looking for the land of the merpeople. The roads in the depths of the jungle all looked the same. They had made obvious marks on the trees, which could be recognized at a glance. Returning to their original place, it took an hour to go back and forth.
Afterwards, they walked again and the road they walked was re-marked, the result was still the same.
“Seventh sister, is there some strange formation in this place, why can’t we get out when we walk around?”
“It’s not a formation.” Seeing her opening her mouth, Qian Wanyu added, “It doesn’t seem to be an enchantment either.”
Wei Junlan wandered around in place, leaned over to the tree to check, and shouted to them, “Come and see, is there something wrong with my vision? Why do I think the mark on this tree is slowly fading away?”
The imprint that took only an hour to carve wasn’t so vague, not to mention that they made two imprints in order to distinguish them yet the two kinds of imprints on the tree seem to be a little blurred.
The three looked at each other, completely bewildered.
“I’m tired of walking, why don’t we rest here for a while.” Qian Wanyu suggested. After walking twice, almost two or three hours have passed, and they were still wandering in place, neither a formation nor an enchantment in sight…
The answer must be here…
Qian Wanyu sat silently for a moment, the consciousness in her soul sea gradually moved towards the ground covering a radius of dozens of miles with her as the center.
Dongfang Minghui saw that Seventh sister was cultivating, she called out softly and the other party didn’t respond, so she just sat further away, took out the Tianyin helmet and tapped her fingers on the two buds of the bean sprouts, “Who among you is the little bean sprout, please tell me honestly.”
The little bean sprout buds were like a single seedling swaying in the wind. Under the strong air pressure of the other side, the two flower buds shrunk into a ball.
Wei Junlan fed Lulu some spiritual liquid, and after feeding, she caught a glimpse of her ‘confess now’ behavior, especially when she saw the seedling posing as a little daughter-in-law being abused by a hooligan, she couldn’t help laughing out loud , “Aiya, what’s the use of raising this bean sprout, just grill it and eat it. Next time when the meat is grilled, we can add some vegetables.”
Although even if you eat it, it is not enough to plug your teeth.
The little bean sprouts trembled even more fiercely. This savage human!
“Don’t eat, don’t eat I’m n-not delicious.”
Dongfang Minghui cooperated with Wei Junlan’s words, rubbing her fingers on her chin for a while, “It’s a good idea to eat, anyway, I can’t tell who they are.”
Just as the two buds were trembling, Qian Wanyu suddenly opened her eyes.
“There is something a hundred feet below that affects the surrounding magnetic field.”
Qian Wanyu’s consciousness was limited, when she detected the depth of hundreds of feet, she could no longer touch it, so she had to withdraw her consciousness. Her beautiful eyes flowed around Wei Junlan and Ninth Sister then finally looked at Dongfang Minghui.
“Oh, Seventh sister, what are you looking at me for?”
“Ninth Sister, I need your cooperation.”
With the spirit of never giving up when she finds an opportunity, Qian Wanyu wanted to solve the mystery that besieged them. The best way was to see what’s buried in the ground. She had a hunch that it will be beneficial to her.
Dongfang Minghui’s soul sea was much stronger than before, and she felt the turbulence of she touched Qian Wanyu’s. Qian Wanyu took advantage of the opportunity of double cultivation and gathered the strong consciousness of the two to sneak into the vast land underground again.
There was a dead silence in that place. There was no living creature underground, and there was a cold breath. This breath seemed to be left from some sort of cold metal substance. Under the dark ground, their consciousness covered the area and vague outlines of metal can be discerned.
“It’s a sword.”
“Seventh sister, this round thing with a spur on it… What kind of weapon is this?”
The consciousness of the two people groped back and forth under the ground. No one expected that hundreds of weapons were buried in this area. They also saw a deep black vortex, and the icy aura released from the vortex was passing through and penetrating the soil little by little.
As soon as their consciousness touched, it was almost pulled in by the vortex in the middle, thankfully the two retreated quickly.
The two worked hand in hand to explore the unknown vortex below. Wei Junlan was suffering protecting the two above. She stared at the interlocked hands without blinking, and her flexible eyeballs patrolled back and forth between the two of them. Her heart was full of scorn.
Single dogs were fed a mouthful of dog food.
Just when she complained that the two of them holding hands and abusing single dogs during their practice, Lulu on the side issued a warning, and its small body was overturned by a sudden strong wind.
“Damn!” Wei Junlan swore, at such a critical juncture, someone unexpectedly attacked.
Several arrows swished towards where she was, and Wei Junlan resolutely stood in front of the two holding her sword to resist the waves of arrows.
These arrows attacked from all directions, and she couldn’t find the source of the arrows at all. After the first wave of arrows stopped, the surroundings returned to the previous tranquility. If there weren’t many wooden arrows stuck in the ground, she would have thought that the sneak attack was an illusion.
“Who is it? Come out!”
Wei Junlan waited patiently for a long time, but found nothing. Just when she was relaxing, rows of arrows made of wood flew towards her, she couldn’t retreat at all, and there were two people behind her, retreating here would expose them.
“Seventh sister.” She left a little consciousness on her body and immediately noticed the above situation, “Wei Junlan’s being attacked, we have to go back first.”
Qian Wanyu already knew that the vortex in this place was like a wind eye. It was a natural metal eye formed after a long period of wind and sun exposure. It was also called the eye of the vessel. She had already felt the metallic aura coming from the eye of the vessel.
Just as Wei Junlan was about to lose, Dongfang Minghui and Qian Wanyu opened their eyes at the same time, jumped up, and smashed the oncoming wooden arrows with a flick of her lightning whip.
Not to be outdone, Dongfang Minghui opened the silk umbrella to resist the attacks.
Hearing the movement, Wei Junlan turned her head and breathed a sigh of relief, “You guys are finally awake, I wouldn’t be able to hold on if you hadn’t come.”
The number of attacks by the other party was very cunning and strange. They seemed to always be aiming at the invisible blind spots. With such a brisk attack, she almost wanted to blame the elves, but hadn’t they just come out of the elf tribe?
“Don’t exaggerate so much.”
Looking at these hidden weapons on the ground and traps that were only used to hunt prey, Dongfang Minghui smacked her lips, “It’s not easy to find a group of humans.”
Qian Wanyu covered the surroundings with her spiritual consciousness, but didn’t notice anyone at all, “I think they should have left now.”
Dongfang Minghui looked lost, “What is the purpose of their sneak attack on us?”
Wei Junlan scratched her head and hugged Lulu, who had made a mess of itself, “Probably wanted to test us.”
Qian Wanyu was a little uncertain when she thought of the eye of the vessel underground, maybe it was just a coincidence but maybe not, “We are resting here today.”
The three of them set up a tent together. Little White and Lulu patrolled the surroundings and issued a warning whenever there was any disturbance. Qian Wanyu and Dongfang Minghui huddled in the tent, “Seventh sister, your approach won’t work. We can’t dig so deep even if dig forever!”
“I have to go down.”
“I’ll go down with you, gather the strength of both of us and it’ll be an extra guarantee.” Just touching the outer edge of the eye made Dongfang Minghui feel the feeling of thousands of knives scraping on her body making her shiver.
The conditions for the formation of the eye of the vessel were very strict. She guessed that what attracted Seventh sister should be something related to metal, maybe it was an artifact.
“It’s too dangerous down there, you stay up there to support Wei Junlan.”
Dongfang Minghui glanced at Wei Junlan and silently swallowed her rebuttal. During the day, the group of people who attacked them before might attack at night. Wei Junlan would be too hard pressed taking care of both of them.
Wei Junlan listened to the couple’s words and couldn’t help but retort, “Let her lend me Little Colour, I can handle it. Besides, outside there’s also Little White and Lulu.” Lulu was completely useless, but Little White could definitely detect any disturbance.
If she could please both sides why not do it?
The two of them sat in the tent for a while and then entered a state of meditation. Wei Junlan spread her hands and glanced at Little Colour. Little Colour was of medium height, like the height of a child around 11 or 2 years old, about 1.36 meters high. Its shape had changed around the time when Dongfang Minghui returned back to her normal size. It could be that it changed itself according to the version of Little Minghui.
“Hey, did you shrink back?” Wei Junlan saw her stinky face, and didn’t forget to make up for it.
Little Colour glanced at her coldly, without saying a word, thinking to herself, if it hadn’t absorbed a little spiritual power from the elves, maybe it wouldn’t even look like this right now it would still be a baby!
“Tell me what your body is, how come I’ve never seen a plant like you?” Wei Junlan’s heart for gossip was curious, even Lulu’s cute charm couldn’t stop her.
“Ignorant.” The people of the human race were short-sighted, but it has also confirmed that it was indeed a unique magic plant in this world. Before Little Colour could be proud, she heard very light footsteps outside, and occasional flapping wings. Narrowing her eyes she gestured with her hand.
Little White roared, and the sound was particularly loud at night.
The two blocked Dongfang Minghui and Qian Wanyu, who were cultivating. The arrows in the daytime were filled with an unknown concoction of liquid. Wei Junlan bet the entire Blood Evil Alliance that the arrows must be full of venom.
“Damn kids actually doing something to hurt people secretly, come out if you have the ability to fight.”
There was a big hole in the tent, Little Colour’s vines were like claws in the moonlight. The vines swooped out of the grass and dragged the one who was hiding in the dark and shooting arrows outside of the tent.
Wei Junlan took a break and glanced back. When she saw the flapping wings of the other party, she was terrified, “Why is it an elf?!”
When they were in the elves, weren’t the elves kind to them? How come they suddenly turned around and started attacking them?
Little Colour disliked the elf and threw the elf up and down several times like a toy.
Little White also flew up and scratched.
After a wave of sneak attacks, the group of other elves disappeared without a trace.
Wei Junlan carried the elf that were tightly bound by the vines into the tent, and only then did she see the other party’s appearance clearly. Their wings were an invisible black, and they were not easy to identify in the dark night. The color was pitch black and white making it look a bit scary.
“It’s not an elf.”
“Looking at how quickly they retreated, they obviously don’t want to save him.” Little Colour showed a smile, which can be called evil, squatted down, looking into the man’s eyes and said, “They gave up on you, do you want to cooperate with us? “
Wei Junlan stroked her forehead and looked at the indignant look on the other’s face, obviously he wasn’t a good bird. Wanting to win over the other party just by these few words, it seemed… a little naive.
“Do you want to?”
Every time Little Colour asked, the vines were like a tightening spell, drawing bloodstains from the man’s tender skin.
“Wait.” Wei Junlan shouted.
Little Colour’s face immediately fell, and there was a hint of displeasure in her eyes. That tyrannical atmosphere made Wei Junlan who shouted to stop a little surprised. She was stunned for a while, and then explained, “In the wild, the bloody smell will attract some monsters here, so let’s not cause unnecessary trouble.”
Little Colour agreed quickly, but the male elf whose eyes were full of vigilance felt that the vines were binding him even tighter. He stared at Little Colour in dissatisfaction, and then his obscure eyes lingered back and forth on Dongfang Minghui and Qian Wanyu.
The two people who had already snuck into the depths of a hundred meters were surrounding the eye of the vessel. When they touched it, they felt the pain from the aura around the eye.
“If I hadn’t called you you would have jumped right?”
“Seventh sister, it’s dangerous to jump like this.”
“Who said I was going to jump?”
Qian Wanyu wasn’t stupid, this eye should be formed by gathering the souls of hundreds of weapons here, if she went down rashly, she would definitely be wiped out by these violent weapon souls. After taking the essence of under, she hadn’t encountered another such violent thing for a long time.
The bigger the challenge, the more conquest she felt in her heart, and the excitement made her fingertips tremble.
Qian Wanyu first separated a small amount of dark-type and gold-type spiritual power. Her gold-type spiritual power was very gentle, at least compared to the sharp blade within the eye it was like a gentle sheep. She tried to use this small sheep to lure the weapon souls.
Dongfang Minghui stood on the side nervously feeling the tyranny of the eye of the vessel slashing on Seventh sister one after another. Seeing that Seventh sister dodged, she could dodge a few times occasionally, but more often than not she was scratched by the sharp blades.
Her mind was aching, thinking that the Seventh sister had been injured. She sat cross-legged, her consciousness gradually immersed in it, and only a weak consciousness was left watching silently outside the vortex.
The vortex was full of swords, lights and other weapons. Those artifact spirits drowned her like a hungry tiger. The biting coldness swallowed her life bit by bit. Dongfang Minghui felt that it hurt everywhere, the skin on her body seemed to be cut into pieces. Piece by piece, she seemed to feel each individual piece being torn. She clenched her fists, trying to distinguish the reality from the illusion, “Ah—Seventh sister!”
A light burst out from the darkness, and it didn’t disappear for a long time.
Wei Junlan didn’t dare to relax at all. The two stayed together all night. Little Colour stared at the black elf they had caught. The other party was stubborn and ruthless. They spent a whole night but couldn’t get the other party to speak.
“Why haven’t they woken up yet?”
“They encountered a little thing, I believe they can solve it soon.” Little Colour’s body was still in the other party’s soul sea so she can feel Dongfang Minghui’s sometimes strong and sometimes weak emotions. Fortunately, there was no danger to her life, so she felt relieved.
Wei Junlan was about to step out, when Little Colour pulled her back. Little Colour looked at the stinky elf, then looked at the tall trees outside, “Wait a minute.”
The elf was hung upside down on a tree by Little Colour, the wings behind him were pierced by the thorns from its vines, the blood dripped on the grass unstoppably, and the smell of blood spread far away with the wind so the elves hiding in the dark could smell his blood in the air.
“What should we do, do we want to save Shuya?”
“Definitely a trap.”
“Stop for a while.” One of the leading elves whispered, “If he wasn’t stupid and didn’t know how to dodge, how could he have been caught?”
Wei Junlan admired this elf who was hanging upside down on the tree, even when his wings were penetrated by the thorns of the vines, he didn’t snort, “According to the amount of blood loss, if they don’t come to save him, it will be very difficult for him to keep his life. He’ll probably bleed to death.”
Ooooh Dark Elf arc?!
