Su Yu glanced around at the rest of the people and spotted another familiar figure. It was Gu Taixu! He was on his own, and the other members of the Purple Cloud Palace were nowhere to be seen.
Su Yu faintly sensed a few whiffs of the scent of some very savage and wild demonic beasts on him.
As though he had felt Su Yus eyes on him, Gu Taixu cast a look in his direction, and his lips curved into a cold sneer. His eyes were glistening with unprecedented, superior confidence. Had he obtained the last drop of the Blood of the Real Spirit, and was he about to refine the Nine Fairy Elixir? Once he swallowed the Nine Fairy Elixir successfully and became a complete, mature form of the Body of Nine Spirits, his capacity would expand marginally.
The scent of the savage demonic beast he carried was most probably from some Real Spirit demonic beast from the beast yard.
Hehe, almost everyone is here, so its time for all of you to begin the journey to Hell, the black dog remarked with a smile and spat out a black-colored scepter from its mouth.
Eh! That isnt that the treasure of the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy, the Glittering Jewel Fairy Scepter, is it? One of the challengers expressed their surprise. They had seen Zhan Wushuang take the Glittering Jewel Fairy Scepter away, along with the skeletal remains of the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy. Then what was the Glittering Jewel Fairy Scepter spat from the black dogs mouth all about?
Just as expected, Su Yu muttered softly. When he saw the black dog crawling out from the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairys grave, Su Yu knew that the skeletal remains and treasures obtained by Zhan Wushuang might be problematic.
Dongfang Tianfeng wasnt surprised at all. A smile of interest formed at the corners of her mouth.
Zhan Wushuang really was powerful, but he acquired too little information, so his efforts were doomed to be in vain! The things he took werent the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairys remains at all!
Upon hearing that, the challengers who had gathered around were flabbergasted.
Miss Dongfang, please enlighten us. We have seen with our own eyes how Zhan Wushuang carried away the jade coffin from the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairys grave.
If Zhan Wushuang hadnt hogged the skeletal remains, they would still stand a chance to vie for the ultimate legacy!
Dongfang Tianfeng snickered scornfully. Who told you that was the grave of the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy?
Many of them were startled.
As a matter of fact, their people in charge hadnt been able to tell them what the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairys grave looked like, and most of the elders of the factions had never had the chance to see it either.
They had the perception that the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairys grave must be the most enormous one, and the rest of the graves would be surrounding it like stars around the Moon, signifying the extraordinary status of the central grave.
Who else besides the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy herself would have the privilege to receive such exceptional treatment in the mausoleum of the Wonderland? The Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy was the one and only!
They had taken the idea for granted and had therefore gone down a dead end. Zhan Wushuang was no exception.
Bing Wuxin scowled. I remember you saying that the remains of the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy are in the mausoleum, didnt you? And you even said that the ordinary graves belong to the powerful enemies that the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy has killed throughout her lifetime and that they guard the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairys remains.
Dongfang Tianfeng chuckled. Right, the remains of the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy are in the mausoleum, but did I ever tell you that those remains are contained in any of the graves?
No, she had not!
Its in the mausoleum, but not inside the graves? The people exchanged glances of doubt and puzzlement when they heard the mystifying answer.
Miss Dongfang, please dont keep on us tenterhooks. Could the remains of the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy be simply buried underground without a grave? Many challengers were anxious.
Dongfang Tianfeng shot a stare at the black dog with an icy snicker. Do you know that there is a hidden yard in the Glittering Jewel Wonderland?
They felt their hearts quickened a beat. The rumored sixth yard! The sixth yard that had never been revealed since time immemorial!
Considering the noble status of the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy, do you think its possible that her remains are buried in the mausoleum where they would be wide open to wanton thefts by challengers? Her real remains have been buried in the final yard all this while, the sixth yard! Dongfang Tianfengs eyes were glowing with scorching heat as she stared at the black dog.
The grave planted at the center of the mausoleum is merely the yard master of the mausoleum, a close friend of the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairy, whos guarding the mausoleum after his demise! Sadly, he was sealed once again and taken away by Zhan Wushuang by force right after awakening.
As they learned the two pieces of covert information, everyone was struck with sudden realization. The sixth yard was the site where the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairys remains were buried!
But clearly, we saw the Glittering Jewel Fairy Scepter inside the jade coffin. What about that? a challenger asked doubtfully.
Dongfang Tianfeng continued to stare at the black dog and said, Youll have to ask this black dog. You stayed in the grave for so long that I suppose it was part of your masterplan, wasnt it?
Hahaha, little baby girl, you seem to know lots of stuff, the black dog said laughingly while the real Glittering Jewel Fairy Scepter dangled from its mouth. Except for the remains, the rest are illusions. If that fellow gets to know, hell go ballistic, wont he?
Zhan Wushuang was a being of supremacy and absolute arrogance. If he knew that he was tricked by a black dog, why would he not be exasperated?
As their doubts were answered, everyone began coming alive with exuberance.
The sixth yard. Only if the sixth yard was opened, would they have a chance to peek into the real burial site of the Glittering Jewel Mortal Fairys remains. Most of her legacies were left in the sixth yard.
The next thing they had to do was to figure out a way to open up the sixth yard! And there was only one way to open the sixth yard according to the rumors. They needed to gather all five yard masters!
Dongfang Tianfeng made a suggestion. To open the sixth yard we need all five of the yard masters. I have the book yard master with me, and Su Yuxian has the flower yard master. That challenger named Gu Taixu probably has the beast yard master!
Were only short of two yard masters now! One of them is the mausoleum master, and the last one is the martial yard master! And the martial yard master is standing right before us! Everyone, what are we still waiting for? Dongfang Tianfengs words were impactful and galvanizing.
However, the other challengers werent stupid, and they would not easily comply with someone elses commands.
Miss Dongfang, you just said that the mausoleum yard master has been taken away by Zhan Wushuang, so even if we seize the martial yard master, well still be short of one yard master. Our efforts will be futile after all.
Contemptuously, Dongfang Tianfeng replied, Have you forgotten that following the death of one yard master, a new yard master will be born in the yard by default? Now that the yard master has been taken away from the Wonderland, its equivalent to having perished! The new mausoleum yard master is among these black spirits!
All of a sudden, their breaths began to quicken, as they scanned all of the ghostly shadows urgently, in an attempt to fathom which one of them was most likely to rise as the new yard master.
Ill tell you one more thing: only challengers who hold the yard masters in hand will be summoned into the sixth yard once its opened. In other words, only five people will be allowed entry into the sixth yard! Calmly and unhurriedly, Dongfang Tianfeng divulged another piece of heavyweight information.
What? The challengers who were stealthily hatching plans to sit back and plunder the gains by other challengers felt their hearts sink as their plans fell through. They had to capture the yard masters in person now. The problem was how to do that.
They had a few options.
First, they could capture the black martial yard master dog. Second, they could discern the new mausoleum master from the remnant spirits of the Mortal Fairies. Third, they could seize the book yard master from the hands of Dongfang Tianfeng. Fourth, they could seize the beast yard master from the hands of Gu Taixu. Fifth, they could seize the flower yard master from Su Yuxian!
The first three options were undoubtedly the hardest choices as far as they were concerned. The monstrosity of the black dog was deeply and vividly etched in their minds, and they had not the least courage to confront it. Whereas the powers of each Mortal Fairys remnant spirit was awfully shocking, and their survival would be at tremendous risk. As for Dongfang Tianfeng, who dared snatch something from the hands of the Great Oriental Family? Hence, taking something from Gu Taixu and Su Yuxian, the two nobodies, was the only wise move.
Gu Taixu was alright. He was the greatest expert of the Blessed and Heavenly Lands and had participated in Han Feis blind-dating great contest before. His capacity was rather exceptional, and he was kind of famous. There were fewer than a handful of people at the scene who would dare to offend him.
On the other hand, as the 20,000 surviving challengers who hadnt experienced the hundred-story martial tower and the martial disaster, they knew nothing about Su Yuxians capacity. To them, he was the best target to begin with.
The only impediment was that he was close to Han Fei and Dongfang Tianfeng. Before they could sort out the relations between them, no one dared act impetuously.
Brother Su, you look like you really need help, Dongfang Tianfeng said merrily. How about exchanging your yard master with mine, and Ill protect you?
Su Yu only smiled. He didnt even bother to reply.
Putting aside the fact that Dongfang Tianfeng knew Su Yus capacity, and wasnt afraid to forcibly seize anything from him, she was acting so surreptitiously and her intention of asking for the flower yard master was implicit, that he couldnt give her what she wanted no matter what.
Dongfang Tianfeng, give me your book yard master, and you can have the black dog, Han Fei turned and said, so indifferently as though it was only natural.
Dongfang Tianfeng was caught unawares. She pointed at Su Yu, and retorted angrily, Sister Fei-er, do you think that seizing from me is easier than seizing from him?
Han Fei nodded nonchalantly, and held out her palm as she uttered, Hand it over!
Dongfang Tianfeng was truly frustrated that she failed to threaten Su Yu and was threatened by Han Fei instead. She was determined not to hand over the book yard master. Taking a few steps back, Dongfang Tianfeng screwed up her nose. Fine, Im also curious to find out which one of us is better now, after all these years!
With a slam of her slender hand, a fiery red, gargantuan bird materialized beneath Dongfang Tianfengs feet and soared skywards with her.
Han Fei shook her head placidly. A pitch-black Sun appeared before her, and she strode into it. When she emerged again, she was directly above Dongfang Tianfeng.
With a thunderous boom, the two starry sky elites began their duel.
Su Yu was rather speechless. The black dog was yet to be captured, and they had started slaughtering one another.
Hahaha, Im also very interested in the yard masters. Bi Lingtian smiled and stepped into the mausoleum with one stride. He was actually going to look for the new mausoleum yard master.
After thorough contemplation, many challengers followed suit and joined the act of discerning and capturing the mausoleum yard master. Only a small minority of them cast their eyes at Su Yu after careful consideration.
Haha, Su Yuxian, let me give it a try on you! Qian Feng caught a glimpse of Bi Lingtian venturing into the depths of the mausoleum and decided to show up after a moment of struggle. He really had had enough of Bi Lingtian all this time.
Not bothering about the foes that had butchered more than half of the faction mates, and even befriending them and teaming up with them. The surviving people of the Heavenly Knife Region were bitterly disappointed in him.
If Bi Lingtian wasnt personally cultivated by the Region Master, he would even suspect that Bi Lingtian was a spy from the Red Blood Palace.
Bi Lingtain had stopped Qian Feng from seeking revenge time and time again. Now was the best time to take advantage of the widespread havoc and take his revenge.
As for Su Yus treasures and magical powers, Qian Feng was cautious but confident nonetheless. As the second greatest expert of the Heavenly Knife Region, how could Qian Feng not have an ace hidden up his sleeve?
He was convinced that when he revealed his hand, Su Yu wouldnt be able to stand it, judging from his performance in the hundred-story martial tower and the illusionary dimension of the martial disaster. All he needed to defeat Su Yu was to use his ace!
Unruffled, Su Yu glanced sideways, and asked, Have you forgotten Bi Lingtians warning?
The warning about joining hands and facing the foreign enemy together? Sorry, I dont remember! Qian Feng sniggered cunningly. If he managed to kill Su Yu before Bi Lingtian could realize, he could shift the blame to the other challengers.
Qian Feng opened his mouth and spat out a mouthful of pitch-black, delicate tiny needles. It turned out to be a semi-manufactured fairy artifact.
However, the real danger lay inside the fine needles, which contained an acute poison that made souls quiver with dread.
The Strange Poison of Fallen Fairies? Some of the challengers close to them exclaimed in shock, their faces full of horror as they recoiled like startled birds.
Su Yu raised his brows. The name of this poison had been renowned ever since the ancient times. Who hadnt heard about it? There wasnt a soul who didnt know about it, regardless of whether it was in the past or the present era.
This poison was derived from the strong men who had failed to become Mortal Fairies! Once a Stage Six All Creations Old Monster failed to break through the level of Mortal Fairies, the All Creations Mighty Force in their bodies would undergo a drastic, rapid degeneration. The degenerate All Creations Mighty Force would condense to become a powerful poison of the world, the Strange Poison of Fallen Fairies! Martial artists who failed to make it into the Mortal Fairy level were known as fallen fairies, which was the origin of the name of the poison.
The poison was acutely poisonous. Apart from the fallen fairies themselves, no one else could withstand the Strange Poison of Fallen Fairies. Once poisoned, the acute poison would corrode their souls, and make the soul perish along with the physical body! Unless the poisoned victims were treated personally by Mortal Fairies, no one could escape their deadly fate.
Su Yuxian, no matter how many treasures you have, you cant run away from death this time! Qian Fengs smile was starkly sinister and callous.
With a quiver of his fingers, he penetrated the Void carrying the steel needles with the Strange Poison of Fallen Fairies and pierced Su Yus forehead in a split second.
