In an eastern passage of the Blood Phoenix Nest. This passage was blue, and inside was icy cold. A freezing to the bones cold directly penetrated the spiritual shield and penetrated into the body.
This passage was full of cultivators at first glance. These cultivators trembled, and their teeth chattered from the cold. Frost formed on the hair and eyebrows.
“This has no end at all, and it’s getting colder and colder. I’m afraid I will freeze to death before reaching the end!”
“Yes, fortunately, there are no monsters on the road. Otherwise, we will be miserable!”
“My eyelids are twitching, I think it’s safer to go back!”
“Go back? Do you think the Blood Phoenix Nest belongs to your family? To come and go as you wish? Now, there is only one result, either die here or get the treasure and leave here!”
Fang Xiaoxiao led dozens of people and slowly followed after those groups of cultivators when suddenly ….
“Squeak…” A strange cry sounded.
These voices hit the soul and made people’s scalps numb.
“Not good, Ice Crystal Centipede!” That exclamation was like thunder that exploded in their head.
Many cultivators wore panicked expressions.
They saw transparent centipedes that covered the entire passage in the front of the cave. Each centipede was as thick as an arm with a ray of blue light that surged forward from the tail and gathered on the head. After a few breaths, the blue light was so bright that people couldn’t look directly at it.
“Run, run, they are about to attack!”
A loud roar sounded throughout the passage. The cultivators that had their scalps numb turned around and ran back. But there was no time! All the Ice Crystal Centipedes opened their mouths.
“Shoo…” The icy air made bursts of air-breaking sounds and shot towards everyone like ice blue silk. (1)
“No!” The panicked sounds continued.
When the Ice silk hit the body, the shield shattered, and endless chill enveloped the whole body. The whole person is directly frozen into an ice sculpture. Their frightened look became eternal at this moment. In the blink of an eye, dozens of ice sculptures strewn across the passage.
“Boom…” The exploding sound kept ringing.
The ice sculptures burst out one by one. Minced flesh and ice cubes filled the entire passage. Such a violent scene strongly stimulated the nerves of the surviving cultivators. Their bodies trembled violently, and their teeth clacked.
“Don’t just stand there, attack together when they are accumulating strength, otherwise, everyone will die together!”
At this moment, a bald man stood up from the crowd. He was the person of the Red Refiner Sect. With dozens of other baldies, he went straight to the Ice Crystal Centipede. He held down an Ice Crystal Centipede, stretched out his right hand, and hit it with a punch.
“Boom!” There was a loud explosion, followed by the Ice Crystal Centipede that burst directly.
This group of bald heads was so powerful, they can kill the Ice Crystal Centipede by relying on their physical body.
“It’s them, from the Red Refiner Sect!”
“Since they are taking the lead, let’s go together!”
“Kill!” The remaining cultivators also rushed over one after another.
“Miss, shall we help them?”
Fang Xiaoxiao raised her head, and the corners of her mouth lifted up, “Help what help, the most important thing is to preserve your strength! You just have to look like you mean it, but don’t do your best!” Fang Xiaoxiao said.
Behind the group of cultivators were three transparent figures that walked forward slowly. They were cautious and did not dare to make any noise by every step.
“Dean, your clothes are handy, even Fang Xiaoxiao didn’t find us!”
“This can only be useful for those below the half immortal, presumably Fang Xiaoxiao’s Dao protector has discovered us long ago!”
“So what? The Dao protector usually doesn’t show up. They only appear when she is in fatal danger. We didn’t take any action against her. The Taoist protector won’t pay attention to it at all!”
“That’s right! Let’s follow them slowly.
“Good!” The three figures walked forward unhurriedly.
In front of the passage, there was an explosion from time to time. The entire passage was buzzing and trembling. On the road, they occasionally encountered the corpse of a cultivator. The miserable appearance makes people can’t bear to look straight at them.
Time flies, and in a blink of an eye, a few hours have already passed.
“Look!” An exclamation came from the front.
When Luo Liuyan’s ears caught this sound, her eyes couldn’t help but shine. It looked like they almost reached the destination.
“Go, let’s follow carefully, and don’t get exposed!”
“Okay!” The three of them speeded up and moved forward.
Not long after, several people looked at the scene in front of them. Their faces were shocked.
They only saw that they were in a vast circular space. This space was large enough to accommodate a medium-sized city. The surrounding rock walls were neat and smooth, as if someone carved them out. The stone walls were densely packed with countless ancient formations.
A few hundred meters away.
Thousands of cultivators stood on the spot, looking up at the front, their eyes flickering and shining. Following their gazes, Luo Liuyan and the others’ pupils shrank, and their faces were shocked.
They saw that ahead of the group of cultivators was a ten-meter-high square stone platform. On the stone, the platform was a stone pearl the size of a head floating.
“That’s the Soul Calming Pearl!” Yelled someone, and when the words vanished, “Woosh …” The cultivators moved immediately.
Dozens of cultivators use their own technique to rush forward, greed bloomed in their eyes.
“No, they will take away the Soul Calming Pearl!”
“Damn, late by a step, how regretful!”
The cultivators who hadn’t had time to move were full of regrets. Many people also tried their best to pursue them frantically.
First come, first served, but was that even possible? They could only watch those cultivators pounce on the Soul Calming Pearl.
Someone will succeed soon.
At this time.
“Om…” There was a shock.
Dazzling white lights lit up on the Soul Calming Pearl, illuminating the entire space transparently.
These rays of light spread down one by one, rushing to the stage, following the ancient formation, and spreading to the ground.
“Woosh …” On the ground, the ancient formation array quickly lit up.
A force of extreme cold centered on the Soul Calming Pearl quickly scattered around.
“Not good …”
The cultivator who rushed to the very front felt his scalp becoming numb. There were panic and regret on his face.
“No!” The shout stopped abruptly.
Their bodies were directly frozen into ice sculptures.
“Boom!” In the next second, it exploded.
To death, he didn’t even let out a scream.
All the cultivators within a kilometer radius of the Soul Calming Pearl died tragically. Fragments of the corpse could be found with the Soul Calming Pearl in the center of it all.
The smell of blood spread rapidly within the icy air. Such a scene was an intense stimulation on everyone’s eyes. Many cultivators secretly wiped out their cold sweat. The body moved backward involuntarily.
“It’s too dangerous. I almost became a corpse if I moved just a bit more!”
“Fortunately, I didn’t move, otherwise, I will end up the same as that!”
They looked at the Soul Calming Pearl-like looking at a terrifying monster. Although the Soul Calming Pearl was good, it was not so easy to get.
