“Martial Uncle even said to bring more people there in his voice transmission,” added Fairy Yourou.
“Why?” Yue Wangjian asked, perplexed.
“Martial Uncle said that, to repress the killing intent there, the more people the better. These people only need to help repress the killing intent. They will later be provided with the proper remunerations,” explained Fairy Yourou.
Yue Wangjian nodded. He naturally did not have any objections if remunerations were handed out instead of splitting the benefits received.
There happened to be many warriors gathered around them at the moment, nearly all of them there due to the commotion that Yi Yun stirred.
Fairy Yourou faced the warriors and said, “Everyone, my Martial Uncle knows of a secret passageway that leads down into the Fey God Tomb’s abyss. Would this interest any of you? If you are interested, might those with cultivation levels at the Supremacy level or above, as well as those with equivalent strength, come over here to discuss in detail?”
Her voice was soft but it reached the ears of everyone like an otherworldly tune that descended from heaven.
There were exclamations from the crowd immediately. Down into the abyss?
Everyone knew that the Fey God Tomb was extremely dangerous. It only got more horrible the closer one was to the Fey God Tomb. In addition, the abyss was a land of no return according to legend. Even Divine Lords perished in there, provided one could even enter the abyss.
It had been so long since the last person entered abyss that no one could pinpoint the period.
But even though descending the abyss was extremely dangerous, how could the abyss be devoid of treasure considering that many precious herbs were growing along the Fey God Tomb’s periphery?
Treasures were enticing. Furthermore, the one that extended the invitation to them was Fairy Yourou. It didn’t take long for eight warriors to step out of the crowd.
These warriors had cultivation levels at the Supremacy realm or above. Only one of them was originally a Dao Palace realm warrior. He hung a scimitar behind his back and looked somewhat extraordinary.
“A genius from the Magnificent Heaven, Huang Xuanyan. It’s said that his saber techniques are profound and even at the acme of perfection. He once slew an ordinary Supremacy. It’s no wonder he so confidently dares to enter such a land of peril.” There were such discussions amid the crowd.
Fairy Yourou nodded at them and said, “Fellow warriors, this secret passageway was discovered by my Martial Uncle. Once we descend into the abyss, all you need to do is go to a particular place with us to help repress the killing intent there. The remuneration will be handed out after that.”
These people did not have any objections to simply repressing the killing intent.
They naturally had the strength and courage to risk descending into the abyss.
At that moment, Yue Wangjian suddenly said with a smile, “Brother Yi, I wonder if you might be interested? Junior Sister Yourou’s martial uncle did say the more the merrier. I think you are also one of those who fulfills the conditions. Besides, you managed to kill those five scum easily, so there’s no reason to doubt your strength.”
Fairy Yourou looked at Yi Yun when she heard his words.
Her martial uncle’s voice transmission mentioned that it was best if there were more than ten people. However, her invitation had only attracted eight. It would naturally be better if Yi Yun joined them.
Yi Yun was somewhat surprised hearing Yue Wangjian invite him. He thought about it and smiled, “Since there is remuneration to be earned, why not?”
Yi Yun was also very interested in the place since Fairy Yourou was going to great lengths to get the crowd to head to it. After all, he came to the ancient battlefield in search of opportunities. Even though the Fey God Tomb was dangerous, what was the point of cultivating in the martial path if one did not take risks to pursue an opportunity that was right in front of them?
The warriors that had accepted the invitation also had the same thought.
“Since fellow Daoist Yi Yun is willing to join, let’s set off,” said Fairy Yourou.
Lie Jiaojiao had a nasty expression on her face when she saw that Yi Yun was joining their team. She felt that she had spent some considerable time with Yue Wangjian and that he should not have invited Yi Yun on account of her.
“Junior Sister Lie, I hope you can bear with it. Some personal squabble is nothing compared to important matters,” said Yue Wangjian as he walked over.
Lie Jiaojiao, who had a depressed look, immediately smiled and shook her head. “Why would I mind such things? Senior Brother Yue, there’s no need to worry about it.”
“That’s good. But what was the reason for the grudge between you and Yi Yun?” asked Yue Wangjian.
Lie Jiaojiao recounted the story between her and Yi Yun, with no lack of embellishments. Her version pushed the blame for the conflict all on Yi Yun.
Yue Wangjian nodded in surprise after being made aware that, despite being only an honorary elder of a family clan, Yi Yun had managed to traverse the Psyche Vanquishing Desert alone. He then smiled at her and said, “I understand. At the end of the day, it’s simply a conflict caused by personal feelings.”
Upon seeing Yue Wangjian turn and leave, without even considering taking her side, Lie Jiaojiao felt depressed once again.
Since he was not planning on standing up for her, why did he bother asking about it?
The Fey God Tomb was extremely vast. Just the periphery spanned fifty thousand kilometers.
Beams of light flew across the blood-colored earth of the Fey God Tomb. Then, they stopped in front of a meandering dried river bed. It vanished suddenly, for the other segment was hidden inside the abyss.
Yi Yun learned more about the Fey God Tomb from Yue Wangjian along the way. He now knew that the river bed demarcated the Fey God Tomb’s core and its periphery.
The core and periphery were originally distinguished by people but using the river bed as the final boundary was agreed upon by all. It was said that the river was formed from the blood that flowed out after the death of the Fey God.
Many people had experienced sudden accidents when they stepped into the river. As a result, the riverbed was the site of countless deaths.
Yi Yun looked in the direction of the riverbed. It was covered with blood-red sand and mud. Although it was already dried, it continued to emanate a bloody smell. Perhaps that gave rise to the flowing Fey God’s blood rumor.
However, just a simple look made Yi Yun feel that the riverbed was no safe place. It was best not to approach it casually.
The group waited there silently when a beam of light suddenly streaked across the sky like an arrow. From afar, it set off a spatial tremor, as though meteors were tearing through the sky.
When the beam of light descended, a figure appeared.
He looked to be in his twenties, handsome and dressed in linen clothes. He had a sword slung on his back and the look of a lone swordsman who traveled the world.
“Martial Uncle.” Fairy Yourou stepped forward to bow.
“Yourou, this is not the Nethersky Divine World. You can dispense with the formalities.”
“Fellow Daoists, this is my martial uncle, Nameless Sword. He has been in the ancient battlefield for the past thousand years. He has probed the Fey God Tomb numerous times in the past and is very familiar with the area. He only agreed to bring me down into the Fey God Tomb after I implored him. Martial Uncle, these are warriors that I brought to help,” said Fairy Yourou.
Fairy Yourou’s words astounded everyone. Her martial uncle was a person that had left his name on the World Monolith! That meant that he was a resident of the ancient battlefield!
Him being able to stay in the ancient battlefield was a testament to his strength.
