Little Colour’s vine branches have already sneaked into a gap, and they were about to find something good. When she heard Dongfang Minghui’s words, she almost burst into a rage, but it was too late…
Qian Wanyu, Wei Junlan and the others only had time to hear a bang, and the shiny things in front of them collapsed towards them, as if something had pushed it. At the same time, Little Colour’s vine branches touched a furry thing, which felt cold. The vines instinctively retracted, and the thing followed closely and quickly revealed its true face.
A huge hairy spider, about two meters high, with ten hairy spider legs towered in front of everyone.
The group of people emerged from the pile of shiny objects and saw this spectacle…
“What the fuck!” Wei Junlan raised her head, met its row of about eight emerald-like eyes, and shuddered. Some of the so-called treasures just now were actually the eyes of this hairy, multi-legged spider, and those eyes were staring at them now.
“It’s actually quite pretty.”
Pretty but it’s not at all ambiguous that this thing also kills people. Qian Wanyu grabbed Dongfang Minghui and hurriedly retreated. As a result, when she just retreated to the door, the water that had stopped above the iron door started pouring down again, there was nothing holding it open anymore. The strong wind was blowing behind as well so the door that finally opened was slowly closing at a very slow speed. With the water pouring, the closing speed was getting faster and faster.
“It wants to keep us all here.”
The little mute grabbed Dongfang Minghui’s arm and pointed at the big spider that was approaching them.
Dongfang Minghui was dragged by the little mute on her left arm and on her right arm by Seventh sister. It was very uncomfortable. She broke free and patiently watched what the little mute was saying, “You were talking about that monster?”
The little mute shook his head in a hurry, pointed away from the spider and pointed to the place that their vision had been ignoring, and both his hands couldn’t wait to start gesturing.
Qian Wanyu pulled two of them at the same time, avoiding the long legs of the hairy spider.
“Hey, the three of you don’t stand and watch the show, come and help, I can’t stand it anymore!” Wei Junlan almost vomited blood when she saw the three of them sneaking around while making gestures. The wind was all coming from the mouth of this spider beast, and for her as a Wind Spiritual Master she couldn’t control this wind at all!
Little Colour was completely stared at by this spider. In desperation, it turned into a plant as short as Dongfang Minghui’s calf. Two short and slender vines supported it as it darted back and forth beside the ten spider legs. This can be regarded as attracting a part of the attack power, and it was also much more flexible when it turned smaller, now its vines wouldn’t be trampled randomly.
Going from under the huge spider to its back, Little Colour’s eyes suddenly opened up, and it shouted while circling around the spider beast, “Get rid of this spider beast, there is a road behind it.”
The road behind was blocked by a white fog, and it looked like a fairyland. Little Colour didn’t know what the road was leading to behind the white fog, but there was an urgent feeling that it felt that it needed to go inside right now!
Wei Junlan faced the spider head-on by herself, a strand of hair was cut off by the spider’s long legs, and her head fortunately avoided the spider’s long legs.
Dongfang Minghui couldn’t guess what the little mute was expressing. Seeing this thrilling scene, she grabbed Qian Wanyu’s wrist tightly, “Seventh sister, go and help Wei Junlan.”
Qian Wanyu could see clearly and the person beside her couldn’t hear the sound, so she was worried.
A white shadow flashed by, and Little White saw the multi-legged spider beast before coming to an emergency brake, and then retreated to Dongfang Minghui’s side. It roared at the spider beast twice, Qian Wanyu saw this, and then pulled out her whip.
Just as Qian Wanyu and Wei Junlan attacked from the front and Little Colour attacked from behind the spider beast, the people from the Qing Lan Sect also sneaked back to the door.
“Elder, the door is closing.”
The people from Qing Lan Sect took a peek inside the door and saw the hairy spider legs quickly dodging back in fright.
Little White roared towards the door in a low voice, it bit Dongfang Minghui’s wrist and dragged her behind the door.
Little White dragged her behind the door and roared several times towards the door. When Dongfang Minghui saw this, she understood something. She carefully discovered that there was a shining sword at the door. Because the water kept pouring, if you didn’t look carefully, you couldn’t see that there was a hidden sword in the water.
Someone was outside…
Seems those people also had the idea of being the oriole while the mantis catches the cicada.
Dongfang Minghui hugged Little White, grabbed the little mute who was about to go over to check, and shhd at them.
The whip in Qian Wanyu’s hand wo knows if it was intentional or not also happened to swing forward and strike above the door. After passing through the water she also sent out a purple thunderbolt. The water was crackling and flashing with dangerous purple electricity quickly flowing to the people behind the door.
The screams outside came one after another, Wei Junlan heard them and laughed out loud regardless of her image.
Dongfang Minghui saw the lightning, and felt numb for the group of people outside who were still lying in the water. Seventh sister’s lightning had always been a strong shocking ability. She has tried it a few times before, and she never wanted to feel it again…
“Seventh sister, be careful.”
Qian Wanyu was busy dealing with the group of people outside, and the weapon in her hand was stuck on the iron gate, revealing her entire back so the spider beast took the opportunity to stretch out its furry spider legs towards her. Dongfang Minghui threw her silk umbrella behind her towards Qian Wanyu, the silk umbrella opened automatically, and the hidden weapon shot into the huge body of the spider beast into its eyes.
A sharp scream spread out in the narrow space.
Dongfang Minghui saw Wei Junlan and the others covering their ears involuntarily. She guessed that she had hit the spider beast’s weakness just now, causing the it to scream in pain, “Seventh sister, hit it in the eyes.”
“This spider’s gone crazy.”
The wind in the corridor became stronger, and the little mute was stuck against the wall being blown by the wind. Dongfang Minghui was desperately supported by Little White behind her, but nothing would be resolved this way. She touched Entangled Love and took out a few silver needles for her medical treatment from her space ring.
She released her spiritual power, and the silver needles in her hand floated halfway in front of her, “Go!”
They all shot at the spider beast’s eyeballs causing it to trash around even more.
Qian Wanyu and Wei Junlan dodged to the sides, the remaining seven beautiful marble-like eyes of the spider beast all focused on Dongfang Minghui, and it raised five hairy spider feet to try to attack the flying needles. However with its huge body it became difficult to dodge in the narrow corridor, not to mention, Qian Wanyu and Wei Junlan on both sides were also using their weapons.
The sharp screech pierced everyones eardrums again.
The Qing Lan Sect disciples who were hiding in the water had not yet emerged from numbness of being struck by Qian Wanyu’s lightning. Now they were also attacked by the voice of the spider beast. Dongfang Minghui, the only person present who was not affected by the sound due to her current condition, quietly walked behind the door. Seeing that the whip was still crackling with some lightning, she carefully held the handle of the whip and grabbed it.
“Seventh sister, catch!”
Qian Wanyu returned the silk umbrella to the other party and held the whip again. The tip of the whip flashed purple again.
The spider beast was attacked by the three of them in turn, now three eyes were destroyed and two legs were broken but its fighting power was still very sturdy.
“The wind seems to be getting smaller.” Dongfang Minghui felt it, and hurriedly helped the little mute who had been blown away by the wind.
Wei Junlan and Qian Wanyu were both wind-type Spiritual Masters. When she reminded them, they quickly noticed something different. Wei Junlan murmured, “Could it be that this spider’s spiritual power is all concentrated in its eyeballs?”
“Try it, and then you’ll know.”
Qian Wanyu slammed the whip in her hand towards the long hairy legs of the spider beast. The spider beast wanted to retreat, but it couldn’t retreat. Little Colour used vines to fix its other five hairy spider legs behind it. As a result, it could only attack with its front five legs temporarily. It wanted to move its huge body, but the narrow corridor didn’t allow it creating an absolute advantage for Qian Wanyu and Wei Junlan.
The sword in Wei Junlan’s hand did not hesitate to cut off its sixth long leg, one of the few remaining.
Dongfang Minghui circulated the spiritual power all over her body, her eyes flickered, and a small round bead scattered on the ground floated up and floated in front of her, just like her usual practice, she was very good at controlling objects to shoot. She aimed at the other eyeball of the spider beast, “Go!”
The spider beast clumsily avoided, at the cost of only cutting off its sixth long leg to Wei Junlan.
Dongfang Minghui took the trouble to repeat the same action, ‘harassing’ it from time to time, angering the spider beast and the vine branches tying up its remaining legs started to tear.
The vines that trapped the spider beasts burst, and Little Colour dodged quickly so she wouldn’t be cut into muddy flesh by the manic spider beasts. Even so, she sacrificed more than ten vine branches to escape.
Qian Wanyu was hit by the sound of the spider beast again, and she quickly took out two soundproofing pills that Dongfang Minghui had made before, throwing one to Wei Junlan, “It’s going crazy again.”
The wind was blowing, and the narrow corridor swayed as the spider beasts ran. Qian Wanyu once thought that the palace was about to collapse, but the vibration was only for a while. Who would have thought that the spider beast would completely ignored them and run towards Dongfang Minghui’s location!
Before Dongfang Minghui could move, Little White behind her flew over, but it only jumped up and hooked into the spider beast’s lower abdomen. It managed to hit the spider beast with a single claw however, the spider beast completely ignored Little White. Two slender legs pierced towards Dongfang Minghui’s two beautiful eyes.
Dongfang Minghui’s silk umbrella blocked a fluffy spider’s leg, but it couldn’t resist the second, third… and then the white silk that came out of the spider’s mouth. These silk threads also had wind infused into their strands. She looked behind her, that iron door was about to close!
The Little Mute stood behind the iron door at some point, and after his legs touched the water, a fish tail lurked underneath slapping heavily on the water causing a pillar of water to rise and briefly blocking everyone’s sight.
A golden light flashed, Qian Wanyu and Wei Junlan felt a huge force that sent them flying out when the water column fell, Dongfang Minghui looked at them in astonishment.
“What’s the situation?” Wei Junlan found that the spider beast was a little worse than them. Its spider’s legs were split into pieces, and there was only one eyeball left, even the color of that remaining eye gradually faded. Anyone could see its vitality was fading little by little.
Qian Wanyu quickly ran to Dongfang Minghui and touched her injured arm, “You’re bleeding.”
Dongfang Minghui blinked, seeing that her arm was injured, and before she could bandage it, Little Colour rushed over like a small cannonball. Its vine branches swept over her injured arm, greedily absorbing part of the blood.
“Go away.” Qian Wanyu’s face was gloomy, if it weren’t for Little Colour’s vines still wrapping around Dongfang Minghui’s arm, she would have wanted to pick up a sword and cut them off.
Little Colour ran away embarrassedly, it really felt that Qian Wanyu wanted to kill her just now so she went away to rummage around with a guilty conscience. However she did not find any treasures. On the other hand, the road blocked by the white fog became clearer.
“The wind has stopped.”
Wei Junlan completely beheaded the spider beast with a sword, and dug out a very big wind energy core. She asked curiously, “What happened just now, why did the spider beast suddenly die?”
The little mute couldn’t speak, and no one understood his gestures.
Dongfang Minghui, the only one who knew the truth, couldn’t hear what Wei Junlan was saying. The spider beast’s long legs wanted to blind her eyes and dig out her heart. Unfortunately, because the spider was trying to attack her heart, the spider beast’s killing intent triggered her heart guard spiritual artifact.
She simply took the opportunity to blind the remaining eyes of the spider beast, and the spider beast was killed by the rebounding power from the backlash of its spiritual energy going out of control.
Little Colour moved the body of the spider beast away, and used the vines to test the path. It could sense that there were many plants and even some strong spiritual energy in the path, “You can enter.”
Dongfang Minghui touched the big head of Little White and reminded, “Did you forget the group of people outside?”
After her reminder, Qian Wanyu and Wei Junlan exchanged glances. The two flashed into the door from the left and right. After the wind stopped, the water above the iron door stopped at the same time. The spider beast was like a switch. When the wind was active the water moved, when the wind stopped the water stops.
More importantly, ever since Qian Wanyu used some of her purple lightning before, the people outside have been silent.
“Are they all dead?”
“Let me check.”
Little Colour’s vines penetrated underneath and patrolled the water for a while. There was no one in a radius of ten miles. “No one is outside, they seem to have retreated.”
Wei Junlan was surprised, she could hardly believe that this was the Qing Lan Sect’s way of doing things, she simply said, “In that case, we might as well close the door.”
Qian Wanyu quickly retorted, “The ingenious setting behind the Dragon Gate should have been invented by the person who built the palace in the first place. When there is wind, there is water, also the wind creates the pressure pushing the door close. Once the wind stops, the mechanism will be invalid. It’s easy to open up now so it doesn’t matter even if we close it.
“Oh, is that so?” Wei Junlan was dumbfounded, so they accidentally destroyed the protection setup here…
“What should we do now?”
Qian Wanyu looked in the narrow corridor, and used the shiny objects scattered on the ground as part of a formation. In a short time, a formation stone was placed in each of the six corners.
Wei Junlan watched for a while before realizing that the opponent was arranging a formation.
Dongfang Minghui took this opportunity to bandage her wound. The blood had already been sucked up through Little Colour. Her wound was also now basically healed. The bandaging was really just for others to see so they wouldn’t suspect anything.
Qian Wanyu set up the formation behind the door, as soon as the door was opened, and those people from the Qing Lan Sect took the first step, the formation would start automatically.
After they walked into the path covered with white mist, there were a few sneaky figures outside the door. They were the Qing Lan Sect disciples who had been shocked by Qian Wanyu’s purple lightning before.
“Senior brother, there seems to be no sound inside.”
“Go in and have a look.”
“But that big spider beast seems to be very powerful-”
Before that junior brother could finish speaking, they were interrupted by the senior brother, “Making someone else seem strong and putting yourself down, hmph get out of the way.”
The iron gate, which couldn’t be pushed even before, was gently pushed open this time. The corridor looked like a tornado had passed through, the entire place was a mess and gems were also scattered all over the place.
When the Qing Lan Sect disciples, who didn’t recognize the treasures at all saw this their eyes widened a bit when they saw the shiny thing, they rushed in without thinking, and then… the formation started.
The surrounding environment changed, the previous scene was restored. The gems were piled up like mountains, the spider beast was again hidden behind the gems, and the wind was blowing yet again. The chapter of the Qing Lan Sect’s disciples and the spider beast fighting each other to the death officially opened!
On the other side, after Qian Wanyu and the others entered the path, the fog became thinner and thinner, and soon they could clearly see the original appearance of the road. After some walking, the road quickly turned darker and darker. Qian Wanyu and Dongfang Minghui intertwined their fingers. In order to prevent everyone from getting separated, Little Colour’s vines also connected everyone’s waist tying the four people together.
“I seem to smell medicinal plants.”
“Where is it?” Little Colour looked anxious.
“Why don’t I smell it?”
Wei Junlan, who also had a certain degree of recognition for medicinal plants, was a little unconvinced. She cocked her nose around vigorously, but she didn’t smell anything. “This doesn’t make sense.”
Dongfang Minghui didn’t listen to them since she couldn’t hear, she walked straight to a place, and when she moved, everyone was dragged by the vines and walked over.
“Qing Mo, since you have heard of Water Dragon Hall, do you know where the Dragon Gate leads to?”
“I don’t know.”
Water Dragon Hall was just a very old legend. After the Dragon Gate, it should naturally be the realm of dragons that the Water Dragon dreamt of. However, this dark place was obviously not the high sky of the heavens. It was impossible for the Dragon God to actually allow the Water Dragon to ascend again as well.
