Three or two people walked away from them.
Little Colour rolled her eyes, looks like the secret was still found by this group of people. But it’s okay, the door can’t be opened easily, maybe this group of people can open it, but she couldn’t be happy for too long when the senior brother said, “I already know that you are hiding there, come out.”
The little mute looked in disbelief, and was hesitating whether to go out, when Little Colour stopped him. As for the other person, Dongfang Minghui couldn’t hear anything, she just sat in the water barrier waiting patiently. Only Little Colour could rival the cunning mind of the other side and naturally did not believe that she could have been discovered so easily.
They had hidden with the help of a large number of plants in the side hall. If they could still be discovered in this way, it would only mean that its ability to hide had regressed dramatically.
On the other side, the group of people waited for a while, but there was no movement. Then someone asked in a low voice, “Eldest brother, have you found something wrong?”
The senior brother nodded lightly, “We were very careful this time, when was it discovered?”
For this, he was also puzzled.
The surroundings were quiet, except for the sound of flowing water, the side hall was very lonely. Only then did he patiently wait for the few people who just went to call Song Quan over.
Dongfang Minghui sat in the water barrier and looked around bored, but she met a pair of small red eyes, like small lanterns at night, and a subtle light reflected from the bottom of the water, she was shocked and pulled a little at the vines on her wrist pointing in that direction.
Little Colour saw this and her scalp was numb, the little mute’s eyes went round as well and his tail twitched automatically.
“They’ve been gone for so long, why haven’t they come yet?”
“Elder brother it’s not good, someone broke in!”
The senior brother and others quickly rushed out to check the situation.
Little Colour was secretly relieved after hearing all the people had left, guessing that Qian Wanyu and Wei Junlan had caught their attention, “Let’s open that door while they’re all gone.”
At first, Little Colour didn’t believe what Little Mute had said that there was a treasure in the side hall, but after seeing the red caterpillars just now, she was sure. It is said that the red caterpillars generally live around strong spiritual medicine, it is regarded as a guardian spirit. If it weren’t for the fact that the other party was too ugly and poisonous, Little Colour would not be afraid of it at all.
The little mute gestured desperately at them.
“He said that if the three of us work together, maybe we can open it.” Dongfang Minghui said loudly.
The echo kept ringing in her ears, and Little Colour made a shh gesture at Dongfang Minghui.
Dongfang Minghui covered her mouth immediately.
Little Colour followed up, sneaking under the iron gate again with vines and pulling open a gap, a small whirlpool of water swirled beside the iron gate, Dongfang Minghui’s water barrier was far away and Little Colour was about to drag her back when a figure appeared behind Little Colour and Little Mute. Dongfang Minghui’s eyes widened, “Little Colour, be careful!”
Before the fish tail that Little Mute had deliberately struck was swept out, it was interrupted by the group of returning people.
As soon as Little Colour’s vine branches left, the door slammed shut again.
“So there’s another person here.”
Dongfang Minghui’s shout had focused all the attention of the group on them again.
The senior brother held a sword in his hand, and a blue light swept from the sword to Dongfang Minghui in the water barrier. The vine branches in her hand tightened, and the position of the water barrier changed direction, so she avoided the opponent’s attack.
“It’s actually a spiritual pet.”
The group of people linked the vine branches at Dongfang Minghui’s wrist with Little Colour, and mistakenly regarded the magic plant as the spiritual plant a Wood Spiritual Master would make a contract with. The combat power of the Wood Spiritual Master’s was terrible in most people’s eyes so this was surprising to them.
“I didn’t expect that there was actually a merman here.”
The eyes of those people shifted to Little Mute again. Little Mute’s tail flicked, and a three-meter-tall water jet intercepted them.
Dongfang Minghui watched the little mute gesturing and seemed to tell them to leave quickly.
“I won’t leave.”
The thing that the little mute wanted to protect is behind this door, and this group of people were all eyeing it. They seemed ruthless and were not any good people. On the other hand, the only thing Little Colour feared most was the aura of death or a fire-type Spiritual Emperor.
However, right now, even if it encountered a Fire-type Spiritual Emperor under the deep sea, it had no fear!
Little Colour’s vines slipped silently to the bottom of the water, distracting their attention with words, “Who are you?”
“What the hell are you–ah?”
“Elder Brother, there is something under the water.”
Little Colour vines ripped apart several people underwater, “Oops, sorry, I didn’t need to know.”
Dongfang Minghui was a little stunned, she was well protected by Little Colour, watching the scene overflowing with spiritual energy, the water was turbulent, and even the group of red caterpillars who were hidden in the dark and only exposed their faces quickly ran towards them.
“Little Colour, those things are here…”
Dongfang Minghui’s voice was very loud, and she said it vaguely, frightening the group of people running around Little Colour vines. They looked at each other and said, “What?”
Little Colour giggled, “Come on then, let these intruders die.”
“Senior Brother, what is that?!”
One of them followed Dongfang Minghui’s line of sight, and found a pair of small fiery red eyes hidden under the water, the densely packed eyes made his scalp tremble, “God, what is this?”
Little Colour also tried to get close to them. While watching out for the group of people, it was secretly trying to open the door behind.
Qian Wanyu followed the voices into the side hall, and saw a group of about seven or eight people, surrounding Little Mute and Dongfang Minghui, she squinted slightly, “You’re all from the Qing Lan Sect?”
Before she could find Dongfang Minghui, she had met several other people at the fork in the road, she had recognized from their sword-playing techniques and stature.
“H-how do you know–?”
“Chang Lin, shut up.”
“Yes, Senior Brother.”
Wei Junlan sneered, “Don’t think that you can disguise yourself as someone else by peeling off a layer of clothes. I’m curious, the Qing Lan Sect doesn’t care about the outside world, since when did they reach out their hands to our merpeople?”
Wei Junlan also flicked her blue fish tail at the right time, confirming to the group that she was also a merperson.
Not to mention, Wei Junlan was indeed a merperson right now…
This question really stunned the group of people, the reason why they came to the merpeople’s land, only their senior brother knows.
The Senior Brother Qi Xinli’s eyes were dark, but his heart was full of turbulent waves. The master once warned him, no matter what, he couldn’t let the merpeople notice anything, otherwise this matter will be doomed to fail. At this rate now he could only…
As early as when Wei Junlan attracted their attention, Little Colour had already scattered vines to attract all those little red eyes around, and was tempting them to attack the group of people. When it and Little Mute joined forces to open the door, The impact of the water slammed the unsuspecting group to the bottom of the hall coming face to face with the group of little red eyes, immediately making them scream one after another.
It was nothing more than because the true form of those little red eyes was too ugly in appearance, their bodies were disc-shaped, and there were five or six eyes flashing on their body. Just looking at them would be scary not to mention a whole group of them covering their vision. This was on top of the fact that each of them were highly poisonous, if they were stabbed by their feelers, most people would be killed instantly.
“If you want to kill someone then kill your mouth, you must be dreaming.” Wei Junlan also noticed that the other party issued the killing order after she finished saying those words.
The whip in Qian Wanyu’s hand hooked Qi Xinli’s long sword, and the lightning flashed, echoes of thunder rang out as if the sky was about to fall. The long sword in his hand tried to break free, but was struck by the lightning that came with the mine whip, and instantly he lost the ice blade in his hand.
Little Colour was about to open the door, but the little mute was distracted so the door almost closed again, “Don’t be fooled by their nonsense, hurry up.”
Seeing the three of them pushing hard, Wei Junlan went up to help, “You all get out of the way, I’ll try.”
Little Colour pulled Dongfang Minghui to her side and stretched the vine branches so that the door would not close again so quickly.
The fish tail under Wei Junlan swayed in the water, and when she moved, the group of little red-eyed monsters rushed to the side, she released the wind energy causing a strong wind and a water column more than five meters high to flow fiercely and collide with the door.
Dongfang Minghui only had time to shout, the water barrier was submerged by the falling sea water, and Little Colour was also wet.
The senior brother was stunned by the lightning from Qian Wanyu’s whip. Seeing that the situation was not right, he shouted and ran away.
Qian Wanyu was not in the mood to chase them, she put away the long whip, grabbed Little Colour’s vines, and dragged Dongfang Minghui back looking at the human who was sitting in the water barrier with some displeasure, “Ninth Sister…”
Dongfang Minghui glanced at her with a guilty conscience. Seeing that the other party’s face was a little angry, she lowered her head and said, “Seventh sister.”
Knowing that Dongfang Minghui couldn’t hear her, Little Colour simply said to Qian Wanyu, “What the little mute was talking about is behind this door. Although the group of people left, we’re not sure when they will come back. We should solve the current problem first.”
The biggest problem at the moment was that the door was pushed open by Wei Junlan with a large opening to accommodate one person.
“I’ll go first.”
Little Colour volunteered to get in, and even Dongfang Minghui, who was tied to her wrist, was dragged in by her. The face of Qian Wanyu, who was beside her immediately turned black.
When the little mute saw them go in, he squeezed in and swam in as well.
Wei Junlan knew what Qian Wanyu was saying when she saw the look on her face, and quickly waved, “You go in, I’ll stay outside.”
“No.” Qian Wanyu shook her head and said, “We must work together to fully open this door, if we accidentally close it later, we will be trapped inside.”
What’s more, the group of people who just slipped away will definitely make a comeback as well. Their situation would be very passive by then.
Wei Junlan felt that the door was as heavy as a thousand jin, and it took all the strength in her body to barely pushing it open the distance for one person to enter, “This door is really evil.”
“No, this gate has a lot to do with it.” Almost everything in this Water Dragon palace belonged to the dragon family, and even the simplest jade pillars were coveted treasures, let alone the dragon gate made of fine iron.
“Dragon Gate?” Wei Junlan almost drowned in her own saliva.
What the fuck is this plot?!
“You’re not kidding, are you?”
“It should be that dragon gate.”
Qing Mo was sure, but, she have to say, the owner of this palace was too weird to have the rumoured Dragon Gate built in an unnoticed corner of a side hall. Qian Wanyu frowned, “Come on, let’s try it out.”
Little Colour and Dongfang Minghui, who had entered the door, stared blankly at the furnishings in the room. Compared with the rotten things outside, the dazzling array of things inside the door blinded their eyes. It was two worlds entirely inside and outside the door.
Dongfang Minghui’s water barrier didn’t need to be used. The water inside the door poured down from the top of the door blocking the water flow. But there was no water on the other side, not only that, but the things inside were also very well preserved, there was a large bunch of shiny things.
“Have you ever been in this place, little mute?”
The little mute nodded fiercely, then shook his head again, not knowing what he wanted to express, even confusing Dongfang Minghui.
“If Toothless was here, he would love the place.”
Little Colour followed the wall to find medicinal plants, and even used some vine branches to probe inside. The little mute grabbed her hand, shook his head at her, and gestured. Little Colour rolled her eyes, saying that she didn’t understand, “What exactly are you talking about?”
Dongfang Minghui turned her back to the two of them. She saw the brightly colored objects and picked them up to take a look. They were all luminous stones that were usually seen on the seabed, at first glance they seemed useless.
Little Colour tugged at her wrist and pointed at little mute.
The little mute gestured at Dongfang Minghui again, his blue pupils were wide and round, looking anxious.
Three people who couldn’t communicate at all looked at each other with dismay.
The door was completely shut, and the water flow above the door stopped abruptly as if a key had been pressed.
Dongfang Minghui followed Little Colour and Little Mute’s dumbfounded eyes then they saw Qian Wanyu walking over with a gloomy expression, her face was a little ugly.
Qian Wanyu took a quick glance at the shiny things inside, then went straight to Dongfang Minghui, arched her fingers, paused for a moment above the bridge of her nose, and then scratched it hard, then turned to Little Colour and said, “This place is windy, so it shouldn’t be a closed room.”
The direction of the wind was coming from behind these things, and the wind combined with the water flow successfully blocked the door from the inside.
“It’s no wonder it was so hard.” She couldn’t open the door from the outside easily because of the strong winds pushing it back. It’s normal to think about it now, otherwise the things inside wouldn’t have been so well preserved.
“Then what are you waiting for, we’ll where the wind is blowing if we move these things away.” Little Colour impatiently stretched out her vines, but still squeezed in a little bit along the gap.
The little mute was tugging and stomping in a hurry gesturing towards the three of them.
Dongfang Minghui’s eyes didn’t move, and she focused on the little mute’s gestures. After reading it five times, she subconsciously translated, “He may be telling us not to move these things, otherwise there will be a huge danger—”
Whew what will they find here?!
