Chapter 1145 – Danger on the Way
“Let’s go!” Uncle Qing said helplessly, and the group continued on their way.
“Master, these are members of the Green Jade Sheep Race, a race that just barely managed to be included in the Ten Thousand Ancient Races. From the looks of it, a powerful opposing race attacked them, and they can only move to some other area now,” the Black Destruction Serpent Dragon explained to Zhao Feng.
There were no countries or lord dynasties in the Ancient Desolate Realm of Gods; there were only forces and races of different sizes.
The laws of nature were stronger in the Ancient Desolate Realm of Gods. Battles over resources between different races would occasionally happen. Experts controlled the fates of the weak! The Green Jade Sheep Race had been defeated by the Giant Spirit Deer Race and was now running to some other place.
Hearing this, Zhao Feng couldn’t help but sigh. Three-star powers in the continent zone were considered very strong, and it was rare to see battles between three-star forces.
Zhao Feng then turned his gaze toward the carriage. Those within the carriage would obviously be the main members of the Green Jade Sheep Race. Amongst them, Yu Lin’er was an Emperor, but she wasn’t even thirty years old yet. Next to Yu Lin’er was a youth who was even younger.
“This youth is probably only around sixteen but is already at the Small Origin Core Realm!” Zhao Feng was stunned as he saw through the carriage. If this youth was in the continent zone, he would be considered a miraculous prodigy in the entire continent zone.
One had to know that when Zhao Feng was sixteen years old, he was only at the Ascended Realm, and even then, he was considered one of the younger ones amongst those of the same cultivation. From the looks of it, Zhao Feng’s results back then would be a humiliation if he was born in the Ancient Desolate Realm of Gods.
Zhao Feng then inspected the other people in the group. The members of the Green Jade Sheep Race were mainly Kings and Emperors, but their auras were extremely condensed. Light flashed through their eyes; it was obvious that they had strong foundations and had experienced a lot of battle. They were all very experienced and knowledgeable.
The Peak-tier Kings of the Green Jade Sheep Race are much stronger than normal Emperors in the continent zone!Zhao Feng couldn’t help but smile as he became more curious about the Ancient Desolate Realm of Gods.
“My name is Man Zi. Friend, where are you from?” At this moment, a male from the Green Jade Sheep Race greeted Zhao Feng.
“My name is Zhao Feng, and I’m from the western border of the Ancient Desolate Realm of Gods!” Zhao Feng’s expression remained the same as he replied according to the Black Destruction Serpent Dragon’s directions. From what Zhao Feng knew, the reason this Man Zi came to talk to Zhao Feng was because Uncle Qing had ordered him to find out more about Zhao Feng.
“That’s a bit far. Sky Feather Island is near the northern border of the Ancient Desolate Realm of Gods!” Man Zi revealed a worried expression for Zhao Feng.
“But since Brother Zhao dares to travel alone, your strength must be great, right?” Man Zi closely inspected Zhao Feng. He couldn’t sense a very strong ancient bloodline from Zhao Feng. Without a Ten Thousand Ancient Races bloodline, Zhao Feng’s cultivation talent would definitely be weaker. However, Zhao Feng traveled alone despite his young age, which surprised many from the Green Jade Sheep Race.
Parts of the Ancient Desolate Realm of Gods were ruled by powerful forces while other places were forbidden areas that were usually ruled by precious and rare beasts or full of some other dangers. Without great power, other races and forces would need to pay a price to pass through the territory of another force. If they accidentally entered the territory of beasts, they might be attacked.
Right at this moment, the sound of flying appeared in the clouds, and a fierce arrow charged over. Several dozen giant green birds with rotting wings revealed ghastly white bones as they glared at the members of the Green Jade Sheep Race with deadly eyes.
“Green Death Birds. Pay attention and protect Young Lady and Young Master!” Uncle Qing roared.
The momentum of the entire group suddenly changed. A surge of battle-intent and cold killing intent started to spread. Uncle Qing led eight people and waved the dark green spear in his hand as he released several golden beams of light.
“Green Azure Blow!”
“Green Light Strike!”
The other members of the Green Jade Sheep Race attacked alongside Uncle Qing.
The cultivations of these Green Death Birds were mainly at the level of Emperors. Although the Green Jade Sheep Race didn’t have many people, they had Uncle Qing, so nothing would happen to them.
The Green Death Birds were soon at a disadvantage. The majority of them were slain, and the remaining Green Death Birds left.
“Continue!” Uncle Qing said as the entire group continued on their way.
“Sorry for letting Brother Zhao see this joke. Even the Green Death Birds dare to attack us now!” Man Zi sighed next to Zhao Feng.
“Doesn’t the Green Jade Sheep Race have any Mystic Light Realm experts? It’s considered a three-star race, right?” Zhao Feng asked with a smile.
“Brother Zhao, stop making fun of us. Three-star races are at the very bottom in the Ancient Desolate Realm of Gods. With the current population of the Green Jade Sheep Race, we are probably one of the weakest three-star forces!” Man Zi disliked what Zhao Feng just said.
Zhao Feng’s expression paused slightly. Three-star forces were at the very bottom in the Ancient Desolate Realm of Gods? Although Zhao Feng knew little about the Ancient Desolate Realm of Gods, a three-star force couldn’t have such little power here, right?
“Master, that’s indeed the case. Two-star and three-star forces are at the very bottom in the Ancient Desolate Realm of Gods. They’re only tools for other stronger forces to obtain resources with!” the Black Destruction Serpent Dragon said.
“Only a four-star race, such as the Blazing Fire Golden Sheep Race, can be considered strong in the Ancient Desolate Realm of Gods.” Awe and respect flashed through Man Zi’s eyes when he mentioned the Blazing Fire Golden Sheep Race, which was precisely their destination.
Zhao Feng’s expression became slightly grim. If even three-star powers were at the very bottom in the Ancient Desolate Realm of Gods, then Zhao Feng would most likely have to go to the Blazing Fire Golden Sheep Race that Man Zi talked about just to obtain a detailed map.
Zhao Feng would only be able to confirm his destination after obtaining a map. His main focus would obviously be finding Zhao Yufei. His goals after that were to join a powerful force and obtain resources to increase his power. After all, although Zhao Feng wasn’t considered very weak in the Ancient Desolate Realm of Gods, he wasn’t very strong either.
In the blink of an eye, a month passed. In this period of time, the Green Jade Sheep Race was attacked by beasts five times. The worst time was when they met a Sacred Lord-level black-and-white Illusion Scale Snake; Uncle Qing and many members of the Green Jade Sheep Race paid a price to defeat it.
“Uncle Qing, come rest a bit here!” Yu Lin’er was slightly worried. Uncle Qing’s injuries had become worse after the fight with the black-and-white Illusion Scale Snake.
“Don’t worry. These little injuries won’t do anything to me. We still have five more days till we reach the Blazing Fire Golden Sheep Race!” Uncle Qing squeezed out a smile.
As long as they reached the Blazing Fire Golden Sheep Race, the Green Jade Sheep Race would be able to rest and recover. They would take back their territory that the Giant Spirit Deer Race captured in the future.
Zhao Feng’s eyes twinkled as he looked at the black night sky.
Right at this instant, a fierce and cold aura appeared. The entire group turned cold and started to shiver.
“This aura late stages of the Mystic Light Realm!” Uncle Qing’s expression changed dramatically as his face turned pale-white.
A giant black-armored eagle swept over alongside a gust of cold wind. The entire group shook from the pressure of this giant black-armored eagle. They were like candles in the wind that could blow out at any moment.
The giant black-armored eagle flew around the air above the Green Jade Sheep Race and looked downward with playfulness.
“It’s a Black Scaled Ice Eagle!?”
“Uncle Qing, what do we do?”
The other members of the Green Jade Sheep Race panicked and turned toward Uncle Qing. After all, Uncle Qing was the strongest person here.
“Protect Young Lady and Young Master with our lives!” Uncle Qing revealed a decisive expression as he looked slightly unwillingly at Zhao Feng and sent him a message; “Please take Young Lady and Young Master to the Blazing Fire Golden Sheep Race on the Green Winged Wolves. The Blazing Fire Golden Sheep Race will definitely give good compensation!”
The Green Jade Sheep Race obviously didn’t put any hope on an outsider helping them to the death, so Uncle Qing hoped that Zhao Feng could at least help protect Yu Lin’er and the young master to the Blazing Fire Golden Sheep Race and promised plentiful compensation.
“Hehe, even if these two have the main bloodline of the Green Jade Sheep Race, a four-star force like the Blazing Fire Golden Sheep Race won’t look at them.” the Black Destruction Serpent Dragon laughed and said. It was obvious that Uncle Qing was tricking Zhao Feng; the Blazing Fire Golden Sheep Race would definitely not give Zhao Feng anything for taking the direct descendants of the Green Jade Sheep Race to safety.
Zhao Feng didn’t reply. All he did was look up at the Black Scaled Ice Eagle in the sky.
Seeing that Zhao Feng didn’t reply, Uncle Qing could guess that Zhao Feng knew that he was tricking him.
“Could it be that the heavens want the Green Jade Spirit Race to become extinct?” Uncle Qing looked at the Black Scaled Ice Eagle in the sky with eyes of hatred.
However, a wisp of purple-and-gold suddenly flashed through Zhao Feng’s eye at this moment.
The Black Scaled Ice Eagle suddenly started to scream in fear. The Black Scaled Ice Eagle lowered its head in the air, as if it was bowing and admitting to its wrongdoings.
The Black Scaled Ice Eagle then flapped its wings and sped off while the entire Green Jade Sheep Race stood there, dazed. Only Uncle Qing and Yu Lin’er glanced at Zhao Feng.
That wisp of faint eye-bloodline power just nowUncle Qing’s heart jumped. He felt a wisp of eye-bloodline power radiate from Zhao Feng’s body right before the Black Scaled Ice Eagle started to act weird.
Although the eye-bloodline power was very faint, it was very strong. If his guesses were correct, this golden-haired male that joined their group midway was very likely a peak Mystic Light Realm expert. Only peak Mystic Light Realm experts would be able to scare off a Black Scaled Ice Eagle at the late stages of the Mystic Light Realm with invisible momentum.
“Young Lady, you sensed it as well?” Uncle Qing messaged Yu Lin’er. Yu Lin’er had a secret treasure from their ancestors and should have sensed Zhao Feng taking action. Only Uncle Qing and the young master knew of this.
“Don’t expose it! This senior should have no ill intentions!” Yu Lin’er looked toward Zhao Feng with gratitude.
“Then continue on our way!” Uncle Qing said. The Green Jade Sheep Race then reorganized themselves and prepared to head forward. There was only five days left till they would arrive at their destination.
“What happened just now?”
“I didn’t think that the Black Scaled Ice Eagle would let us off!”
Some members of the group discussed with each another.
At this moment, Yu Lin’er walked out of her carriage.
“Young Sir Zhao, why don’t you come and rest in the carriage? I hope you don’t mind the troubles on the way!” Yu Lin’er said shyly. She was pretty and had a pair of horns on her head that radiated a faint light.
