King Of Gods - Chapter 487
Chapter 487 - Grave Digging
Within the Hundred Graves Forbidden Ground, Zhao Feng sat on the piles of bones and recovered his Yuan Qi.
Because of his strong mental energy, his Source of True Spirit was replenished within half a day, and it was actually even stronger than before.
Compared to that, his eye-bloodline power recovery speed was much slower.
“Maintaining the weapon-shadow takes too much of a toll on my bloodline. It won’t recover without a couple days of rest.”
Zhao Feng closed his eyes and felt the Ice Imperial Spear in his body.
The Ice Imperial Spear’s current state was unique;it was sleeping. Furthermore, not all Earth-Grade items could transform into a liquid and merge with the body.
Because of the Ice Imperial Spear’s specialty, this liquid form was heavily related to the Laws of Water.
It was because of this that Zhao Feng could use a wisp of the Ice Imperial Spear’s aura and power. Even an actual Sovereign wouldn’t be able to control the Ice Imperial Spear.
Earth-Grade weapons were split into tiers just like everything else, and for the Purple Saint Partial Spirit to keep the Ice Imperial Spear, it definitely wasn’t an average Earth-Grade weapon.
Two days later, Zhao Feng’s eye-bloodline power had mostly recovered.
On the other hand, the skeletal division Leader was still laying on the ground and slowly absorbing the air of death within the Hundred Graves Forbidden Ground to heal.
Zhao Feng’s eyebrows furrowed.
He needed to get back to the Canopy Great Country.
The skeletal division Leader spoke in a bitter tone, “I was broken into pieces by you all and had to use my life force. I would need at least a year or two to fully recover under normal situations, but I can recover several times faster in the Hundred Graves Forbidden Ground.”
Zhao Feng opened his God’s Spiritual Eye and inspected the skeletal division Leader’s state.
The skeletal division Leader’s body was extremely tough and could withstand almost any attack from anyone under the Origin Core Realm.
However, once its bones were broken, it would be extremely slow to recover.
“I’ll give you ten more days.”
Zhao Feng estimated that ten days would be enough for the skeletal division Leader to put all of its bones back together
Zhao Feng also told the little thieving cat to return the broken hand.
The little thieving cat reluctantly gave the arm and the gold-and-silver whip back to the skeletal division Leader.
After all, the skeletal division Leader was Zhao Feng’s slave and would be more helpful to him the stronger it was.
Zhao Feng was silent before taking out a drop of Elixir of Life.
The skeletal division Leader’s eyes immediately lit up when it saw the drop.
“I didn’t think that you would have a legendary item like the Elixir of Life. Although the elixir can’t heal my bones much, it can restore my life foundation, and once that’s healed, the speed of my recover will increase.”
The skeletal division Leader was overjoyed as it received the Elixir of Life.
Its aura started to rise after a while.
Zhao Feng nodded his head. If this continued, the skeletal division Leader’s injuries would heal within half a year and it would become even stronger.
In this period of time, Zhao Feng started to walk around the Hundred Graves Forbidden Ground.
The large graves caught Zhao Feng’s attention. Zhao Feng and the little thieving cat had come to the altar-like place in the very center before and were still curious about it.
His gaze turned to the skeletal division Leader. Maybe this member of the Scarlet Moon Demonic Religion upper echelon would know some secrets.
“This is a teleportation-stand that leads to the outside, created by the Patriarch and some others several hundred years ago. It was hard to create even back when we had all the resources in the continent.”
The skeletal division Leader’s voice was low.
Teleportation-stand to the outside.
Zhao Feng’s heart jumped slightly. He knew a little about arrays and had some guesses when he first came here, but he didn’t expect that it was connected to areas outside the Azure Flower Continent.
“Does that mean that I can leave the Azure Flower Continent and enter other areas?”
Zhao Feng wasn’t the frog in a well from back then.
He had fought with geniuses of two-star sects before and he had a decent knowledge of the outside world.
“If this was several hundred years ago, yes, but the teleportation-stand here was damaged from the fight back then and hasn’t been used for a long time. It’s hard to say….”
The skeletal division Leader sighed and shook its head.
It obviously didn’t know whether the stand would work or not.
Zhao Feng nodded his head and started to inspect the area.
The little thieving cat’s figure started to dart around nearby as its eyes moved back and forth.
When they entered the room once more, it was empty.
A scroll appeared in Zhao Feng’s hand, containing words that he didn’t understand even till now, “The Three Saints Palace has become unmovable in the Area of Dust. In the past few days, it even lured several one-star factions to almost break the Curse of One Hundred Graves. Now, the energy of the teleportation array has been used up…. This Subordinate will be leaving first….“
Zhao Feng had his guesses.
It wasn’t hard to analyze that this teleportation array was created with the help of outside forces. The skeletal division Leader also said that the resources of this continent couldn’t create it.
The little thieving cat started to dig not far away.
The entire Hundred Graves Forbidden Ground started to tremble as a powerful invisible curse surged toward the little thieving cat.
The power of the curse was ten times stronger than usual, and even Zhao Feng and the skeletal division Leader were affected.
“Stop, that’s the source of the Hundred Graves Forbidden Ground’s curse!”
The skeletal division Leader’s expression changed dramatically as it tried to stop the little thieving cat.
The little thieving cat’s actions were extremely disrespectful toward the Hundred Graves Forbidden Grounds, challenging its ferocity.
Zhao Feng’s God’s Spiritual Eye caught a trace of the invisible curse power charging toward the little thieving cat.
Zhao Feng circulated his God’s Spiritual Eye and sent a wisp of the ancient aura toward the little thieving cat.
The little thieving cat smiled and flipped in the air before taking out a mysterious dark dagger.
The dark dagger created blurs with every movement, and the invisible power of the curse suddenly changed.
The mysterious dagger trembled and seemed to glow with darkness that murmured in cold raspy tones.
In that instant, an unimaginably mysterious power descended and made the day turn into night.
All the power of the curse in this area screeched and dissipated when it came near.
“Night? Turning the laws of nature around? Could that dagger be a legendary item of the Dao of Assassination?”
The skeletal division Leader’s mouth was wide open and it couldn’t tell what was happening.
The little thieving cat then stabbed the dagger into the ground and used it as a spade as it kept on digging.
Both Zhao Feng and the skeletal division Leader were stunned.
“What’s the history of this cat? How could it be willing to obey Zhao Feng with its intelligence?”
The skeletal division Leader couldn’t understand the little thieving cat. It instinctively felt as if this little thieving cat was a fox that had lived countless years and knew more things than even it.
At this moment, Zhao Feng came to the little thieving cat’s side.
The God’s Spiritual Eye and the aura of the mysterious dagger could make even ghosts and gods retreat.
The mysterious dagger seemed to sense the existence of the God’s Spiritual Eye and hummed lightly. It didn’t seem to reject Zhao Feng, but it was wary of him.
“This dagger might be even more mysterious than the Ice Imperial Spear.”
Zhao Feng guessed in his heart.
Back at the Purple Saint Treasured Palace, the little thieving cat used countless methods to finally obtain this mysterious dagger, and Zhao Feng still remembered the Purple Saint Partial Spirit’s fear and panic.
The little thieving cat laughed wickedly and signaled Zhao Feng to help.
Zhao Feng shrugged his shoulders and took out a weapon and started to dig as well.
“How… how can you be so shameless?”
The skeletal division Leader was shocked, but then it tried to get up and dig as well. However, it couldn’t do so because its bones hadn’t completely healed yet, so it could only watch the cat and human enthusiastically dig.
A grave was soon dug up, revealing a crystalline black coffin.
“That’s a coffin made from Mystic Yin Black Crystal Stones, which contain the Heaven Earth air of Mystic Yin. They’ve been extinct on the continent for a long time now and are rare even in the outside areas.”
The skeletal division Leader knew that these Mystic Yin Black Crystal Stones were a source of energy for the curses.
Looking inside closely, there was a skeleton that radiated a strong power and was preserved rather nicely.
“Interesting. The aura from these bones hasn’t dissipated after so many years and there’s still some remaining aura of the soul. Is it because of the Mystic Yin Black Crystal Stones?”
Zhao Feng was very curious. Through his God’s Spiritual Eye, he could tell that these bones had an aura similar to his ghost-corpses.
A black pearl appeared in Zhao Feng’s hand that sent out a grey mist, taking the bones.
“F*king hell, those are True Lord Rank ghost-corpse materials.”
The nearby skeletal division Leader roared in its heart unwillingly.
It knew that the Hundred Graves Forbidden Ground was created with the bodies of a hundred True Lord Ranks to create such a powerful curse.
“Hehe… keep digging.”
Zhao Feng laughed.
He could feel the Ten Thousand Ghost Pearl’s excitement after taking in one body. It was as if it was “hungry.”
Tok! Tok! Tok!
The cat and human ignored the power of the curse and kept on digging.
Watching powerful body after powerful body being absorbed into the Ten Thousand Ghost Pearl, the skeletal division Leader’s heart trembled, “What… what is this brat thinking? Does he want to create an army of ghost corpses?”
