True Martial World - Chapter 1000
Chapter 1000: Hidden Dragon Pit
Chu He failed to figure out how Yi Yun had seen through her trap. Little Blue was an Ancient Fey beast species whose bloodline was extremely powerful. It had an innate ability to conceal itself which prevented even seven or eight-floor Dao Palace warriors from discovering its existence, much less Yi Yun's lowly cultivation level.
Chu He stopped acting after having her cover blown. The Black Blood Vine that entangled her gradually loosened as Chu He looked at Yi Yun and said with a huff, ’’How did you see through me?’’
’’Why should I tell you? You set up a trap by preying on the empathy of others and then use a Fey beast to devour them. Who knew that you would have such a wicked heart despite being so young and beautiful.’’
Yi Yun naturally did not know of Chu He's background or goals. All he knew was that Chu He had laid a trap to kill and rob him. However, such incidents were common in the Ten Thousand Fey Empyrean Heaven. People could only blame themselves for being too weak if they were killed. Not much blame could be placed on others.
’’You...’’ Chu He blew her top. She did not know how to explain herself, so she decidedly gave up. She pouted her lips and fell silent, allowing the punk to make his own conclusions.
Yi Yun's eyebrows twitched slightly as he could tell from the girl's expression that there was a story behind this matter. There was no need for her to continue her facade since she had been seen through. However, regardless of the reason, Yi Yun would not foolishly approach the green-dressed girl. The spirit snake the girl reared had an extremely strong aura. It made Yi Yun lack the confidence to deal with the blue snake unless he used Felicitous Rain Lord's sword Qi, but the losses would outweigh the gain.
Yi Yun's mind flashed a thought as his eyes happened to glance a spot not far from the girl. There was a distortion in the void and in the Purple Crystal's energy vision, Yi Yun confirmed that there was another person standing there. Furthermore, the person's aura was very unique...
At that moment, in an inhabited valley within the core area of the Azure Wood Great World, there was a large ravine. The long ravine that reached to the horizon was ancient and rustic.
If one looked from above, the gigantic ravine looked like a dragon that meandered through the lands. It would make one shudder in fear.
’’This ravine is somewhat strange!’’ An elder floating in mid-air said. The person was thin and his body was hunched. He had six arms that hung softly from his body. If Yi Yun were here, he would immediately recognize the elder as one of the Supremacies of the Fey Phantasm Sect, Gui Huazi.
Back when Yi Yun went to the Oracle Fey Kingdom, Gui Huazi had struck with a ghastly palm attack that nearly took Yi Yun's life.
And hovering beside Gui Huazi was a middle-aged man whose body was covered in a faint swirling black fog. The middle-aged man had a pale face and he had a mane of silver hair. It shimmered with a metallic luster and he looked outstandingly handsome. In between his eyebrows was a light stripe. It was a closed eye and he did not wear large and loose black robes like the majority of the Fey Phantasm Sect's Elders. Instead, he wore a well-fitted robe that befitted his position. He looked like an aristocrat from a mortal world.
The silver-haired man was the true person in power of the Fey Phantasm Sect Demonic Eye divine Lord.
The Demonic Eye divine Lord looked at the gigantic ravine and pondered over it for a long time before he said, ’’If I'm not wrong, this is an ancient formation array named 'Hidden Dragon Pit'. I never expected that the 'Hidden Dragon Pit' recorded in the historical books can be seen here in the Azure Wood Great World. I thought the art of the 'Hidden Dragon Pit' was long lost.’’
’’Oh? Hidden Dragon Pit?’’ Gui Huazi looked at the meandering ravine, and indeed, it looked like a pit dug up to bury a dragon.
’’That's right. By using a powerful spirit root with a powerful enchantment sealed within 'Hidden Dragon Pit', it is used to protect a spatial zone. The so-called dragon should be a spirit root. I never expected that the Azure Wood Manor would have such a mystic. However, I will dig it up regardless of what he is protecting!’’
The Demonic Eye divine Lord's eyes flashed a sneer as he suddenly waved his hand. Behind him, a plume of bloody mist burst out and transformed into a gigantic blood-colored skull.
’’The Hidden Dragon Pit is powerful, but too much time has passed and has already weakened the formation array. Today, I'll use my Blood Jade Skull to devour this old dragon!’’ As Demonic Eye divine Lord spoke, he swept his hand!
With an explosive blast, the blood-colored skull slammed towards 'Hidden Dragon Pit' like a meteor. Large swaths of land collapsed as a tumultuous explosion boomed.
Such an explosion caused the collapse of a void. Large tracts of mountains in the distance crumbled as lava burst out of cracks in the rocks and shot fifty kilometers in the sky!
’’Oh? This world is too weak. Grand Elder, this strike of yours nearly caused the collapse of this world.’’
’’The Azure Wood Great World is indeed weak but it's not something so easily destroyed by my power. It looks like the 'Hidden Dragon Pit' is not only protecting something, it is also holding the world together and prevent it from collapsing too soon. If I were to open the 'Hidden Dragon Pit', it would only accelerate the collapse of this world.’’
Daoist You Ming, who was beside Gui Huazi, asked, ’’Then, are we still going to open it?’’
’’Of course! Although it will accelerate the collapse of this world, a true collapse would need a certain period of time. It will not affect us at all. This world is bound to collapse, so what's the point of forcibly stabilizing it with an array formation? I might as well give it a push.’’ As Demonic Eye divine Lord spoke, he produced his Blood Jade Skull once again.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
The ancient 'Hidden Dragon Pit' had maintained an ancient ruin for tens of millions of years, but even though the strongest member of every generation of the Azure Wood Manor would enhance the array, it was unable to withstand the Blood Jade Skull's devouring forces. It began to collapse from the source...
And at this moment, about 5000 miles away, Yi Yun was still observing the distorted space beside Chu He. He had confirmed that there was another girl standing there.
The girl's aura was very special and for some reason, he found it familiar, which left Yi Yun baffled. Could he know that girl?
How could there be someone he knew in this distant Azure Wood Great World?
Yi Yun immediately thought of Lin Xintong but unfortunately, the girl's aura was clearly different from Lin Xintong's.
This made Yi Yun sigh lightly. How was he to find Lin Xintong in the expanse of the 12 Empyrean Heavens?
After a moment of reverie, Yi Yun looked at the distorted void once again. Although he was sure that the girl was not Lin Xintong, he wanted to know why she gave him such a familiar feeling.
As Yi Yun was thinking over it, the mud suddenly stirred in front of the green-dressed girl. A large blue snake emerged, splattering large amounts of black mud in every direction!
Yi Yun's heart leaped as he pulled his sword out. He thought that the blue snake was attacking him, but he never expected the green-dressed girl to panic as well.
’’Little Blue, what are you doing!?’’
The green-dressed girl retreated because the mud that splattered was about to stain her clothes.
The blue snake flailed around and completely ignored the green-dressed girl's exhortations. Instead, it revealed extreme fear and unrest.
’’Little Blue! Could it be...Oh no!’’
Beside the green-dressed girl, space distorted as a silver-haired girl walked out of the void!
