Chapter 456: Enemies Meet
As the participants approached the God Advent Tower, they could feel the powerful aura it emitted clearly.
As they were covered with the aura, the terrifying storm in the world became weaker, till it eventually disappeared.
When they were right in front of the God Advent Tower, the participants looked up. The top of the tower was like a sharp pin, piercing the black sky.
Seeing this scene, they felt an inexplicable pressure. It was as if the God Advent Tower exuded a demonic presence, making them feel jumpy.
“What sort of person was the ancient Great Empress… ?”
Yi Yun squinted his eyes. As he explored the Great Empress mystic realm, he got a greater understanding of the scariness of the ancient Great Empress.
For the mystic realm to have such a vast setup, it already far exceeded the power level of people like the Shentu Patriarch.
The Shentu Patriarch and the Lin family’s Grand Elders were nothing in front of the ancient Great Empress.
And such a figure had left behind very limited records in history. People only knew she had naturally terminated Yin meridians, and she became a peerless Great Empress after she joined up her terminated meridians with unfathomable strength.
No one knew anything about her, things like what she did in her life, or whether she was evil or not. People did not even know where her final resting place was. Was she murdered or did she break through the confines of this world, going into another world?
The ancient Great Empress was filled with mystery and the unknown.
Maybe, one could gain some basic insight of the Great Empress’ secrets inside the God Advent Tower?
With this in mind, Yi Yun walked down the long bridge and arrived at a small square in front of the God Advent Tower.
The square was made of black stone. When he stepped into the square, Yi Yun could feel his blood boiling faintly.
He looked at Lin Fengyue and Lin Xiaodie subconsciously. He realized that they had slightly surprised expressions. Clearly, they had the same feeling.
Yi Yun looked at the ground. The black stone was a material that he did not recognize. It was likely that even after a long time, there wouldn’t be a single mark on the rock surface despite the passage of time.
The floor tiles were as dark as ink. In the middle, there were mysterious dark red patterns. The patterns looked like blood patterns had solidified in the tiles.
It could even be made of a certain biological creature’s blood.
Yi Yun felt that the feeling of his blood boiling was most likely due to the stone. These mysterious blood patterns had resonated with the blood in his body.
“Someone is coming.”
Lin Fengyue suddenly said. Yi Yun’s heart thumped, because at that moment, he could also feel a powerful aura approaching.
He looked up and there were about a dozen people walking over from the storm.
These people were clearly older. They were aged from 27 to above 30.
And walking in front of them, there was a person Yi Yun was very familiar with, Shentu Nantian.
Yi Yun looked at Shentu Nantian and Shentu Nantian did likewise. When he saw Yi Yun, he was first surprised and shocked. Following that, his face sunk as murderous intent appeared in his eyes.
“You are still alive!?”
Shentu Nantian’s voice was cold. His gaze swept past Yi Yun and moved behind him. Behind him was the youth that came from the Shentu family clan and he had a terrible expression.
Shentu Nantian had given him the task of killing Yi Yun. But now, Yi Yun had appeared in front of the God Advent Tower completely fine.
Shentu Nantian squeezed the word out from his teeth. The Shentu family clan disciple behind Yi Yun looked bitter. He felt that he was not Yi Yun’s match at all.
He could only transmit his voice, “Young Master, we were tricked by this kid. His strength is really scary. He has been playing the sucker. Back then… ”
The Shentu youth gave an account of Yi Yun’s performance, and he exaggerated it at certain points to Shentu Nantian. He also emphasized how the ancient desolate beast that nearly killed Gongsun Hong was killed by Yi Yun with one arrow.
However, after he finished speaking, Shentu Nantian only sneered, “I said you are trash, yet you don’t believe it. That Gongsun Hong is also a retard!”
The Shentu youth was stunned. He did not know the meaning behind Shentu Nantian’s words.
At that moment, Shentu Nantian ignored the youth. He then looked at Yi Yun and said with a sinister voice, “You obtained 37 Empyrean Marks?”
Shentu Nantian’s words attracted the attention of everybody. At that moment, they had just passed the first trial. They naturally knew the value of Empyrean Marks, and they also knew how crazy a concept 37 Empyrean Marks meant.
Everyone was stunned as they looked at Yi Yun in alarm. He had obtained 37 Empyrean Marks? Was that even possible?
“You used your energy eyes to find the ancient desolate beast’s weakness and you killed it with one hit! It might look simple, but the angle of the attack and the strength of the attack were all very precise. It isn’t that you are that strong. It is just that your ability just happens to be suitable for the first trial.”
“Yet some idiots think that by imitating you, they will be able to attack the ancient desolate beast’s weakness as well. In the end, they suffered, and they were f**king lucky to not have died from it.”
Shentu Nantian then turned his head to look somewhere into empty space. He said with a sneering tone, “Gongsun Hong, stop hiding. Come out!”
With Shentu Nantian’s strength, how could Gongsun Hong’s illusion technique hide him from his eyes?
The space turned volatile. Hearing Shentu Nantian’s words, Gongsun Hong felt his blood surge up. He was extremely embarrassed.
Despite his identity, he had been scolded in public as a fool, yet he had no way of refuting it.
Energy eyes? What was that?
Gongsun Hong did not know anything about Yi Yun’s energy vision, but Shentu Nantian remembered this deep down. He had stumbled because of Yi Yun’s ability. Hence, when the Shentu youth described how Yi Yun passed the trial, Shentu Nantian immediately thought about Yi Yun’s energy vision.
“You think you can depend on your energy eyes to pass the trials later on? It’s good that you were lucky to pass the first trial. This way, I can kill you with my own hands!”
Shentu Nantian said with a sinister voice. Yi Yun frowned slightly. With a wolf staring at him from behind, this feeling was naturally very uncomfortable.
As for how Yi Yun had passed the first trial, Shentu Nantian had hit the nail on the spot. Compared to Gongsun Hong, Shentu Nantian was an enemy who knew him very well. But the crux of the issue was that Shentu Nantian’s cultivation level was too high. Yi Yun was in no way Shentu Nantian’s match.
The gap between the two was extremely great. This difference gave Yi Yun no choice but to be on high alert. If Shentu Nantian seized the opportunity, he would be doomed for eternity.
At that moment, Yi Yun’s heart thumped. He turned his head and looked nearby. He saw a girl dressed in white slowly walking to the square from the storm.
The storm that could tear rocks gently blew the white-dressed girl’s clothes and hair. Her movements were like flowing water, relaxed and composed.
When the girl landed on the black stone square, her feet was not stained by the dust.
Yi Yun’s mouth curled upwards. He smiled because he felt an inexplicable feeling of peace seeing Lin Xintong in this situation.
