Chapter 170: Entering the Relic
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Countless people were gathered around the palace's military drill ground. There was a matrix inside the large military drill ground. It was covered in fog and battle drums were on all sides of it. Armored soldiers beat the drums, causing the matrix to be like a scary battlefield. The people of the Ancient Loulan had their assessments here. If they could move past the entire battlefield, they would pass.
The moment the Virgin Loulan Xue arrived, she attracted many eyes. Her silver hair, silver eyes, and extraordinary aura were all shocking. They'd never seen such a beautiful lady with such a unique aura before. However, she was too cold, as if no one could approach her.
The Virgin stood before the military drill ground and looked downward. Instantly, many people stepped onto the grounds as if they wanted to show off.
"This seems to be a fantasy battlefield," Ye Futian said, looking at the grounds.
"Apparently, the Loulan Relic is a battlefield. Maybe this is to get us accustomed," Yun Qianmo said from beside him.
"Will you go try?" Lin Yueyao asked with a smile.
"We can go directly into the relic. There's no point in wasting time," Ye Futian said.
"You can perform in front of the Virgin," Lin Yueyao said, smiling.
Ye Futian glared at her, not bothering to reply.
Beside them were people from other areas who'd come for the banquet. At this time, someone said, "I heard that the relic is a battlefield and this assessment might be a drill. Would anyone like to try?"
The speaker came from the Yan City of the Ancient Barren World. The Yan Clan was a terrifyingly powerful force with an extremely high attainment in fire. The Yan Clan was the top of these comers. The other two parties came from Yunxiao City and Jiutian City.
Yunxiao City's head force was the Yunxiao Mountain Clan. They had absolute authority in that city. In the outside world, the Yunxiao Mountain was a renowned sacred mountain. Countless clans pledged loyalty to it.
The Jiutian City's top force was the Jiutian Pavilion. In the outside world, the Jiutian Pavilion ruled over many kingdoms. In those places, the kings didn't dare disobey them. These cities all represented powerful regions in the outside world; the Hundred Lands couldn't be compared.
"The Yan Clan cultivates fire and the Ancient Loulan cultivates water. Fire and water do not mix. I'm afraid the Yan Clan will find it difficult during this trip into the relic," someone from Yunxiao City joked.
"Shouldn't fire and water be complementary?" A Yan Clan member chuckled nonchalantly.
"This matrix is a Battle Matrix that tests the will. If you all are interested, you can try," the sharp-eyed youth beside the Virgin Loulan Xue said to the group from the podium.
Everyone's eyes flashed, seeming to be a bit interested. The head of the Jiutian City said, "Why don't each of us send three people forward to try?"
"Alright," people of the Yan City and Yunxiao City agreed.
"Sure." Qian Yang nodded too. He looked to Ye Futian and said, "You three performed brilliantly at the grotto. This matrix is like a different melody that utilizes the same playing techniques. It is quite similar so how about you all take this chance?"
"No need. We're not interested." Ye Futian smiled and shook his head.
Qian Yang glanced at them. He quickly smiled and nodded. "No problem. If that's the case, then you go try. Behind him, Shi Tong, Yue Linglong, and Zhao Han all nodded and walked to the other end of the grounds.
"You're willing to miss such a good opportunity?" Qian Yang asked Ye Futian with a chuckle.
"Aren't you the same?" Ye Futian replied, smiling.
Qian Yang's eyes flashed and didn't say anything.
Not too long after, the four parties entered the drilling ground at the same time. Shi Tong was extremely domineering. He cut open a path with his ax. Yue Linglong was agile while Zhao Han opened a path with his sword. The Yan Clan had terrifying flames, the Yunxiao Mountain Clan was bathed in thunder, and the Jiutian Pavillian's cultivators all had different tricks. They were all extraordinary and forced their way through the matrix. When they reached the end, they looked up at the Virgin Loulan.
Loulan Xue nodded lightly but her expression was still as cold as ever. She didn't say anything either as if she was born with this personality.
Everyone returned to their positions. Yue Linglong smiled and said, "The Virgin is so cold but also so beautiful."
"Indeed," Shi Tong nodded.
Qian Yang's eyes flashed. He studied the woman as cold as ice with something deep in his eyes.
"Wait for me," Ye Futian suddenly said to Yu Sheng and the others. Then he started walking towards the side.
"Where's he going?" Lin Yueyao looked at him. Everyone watched as Ye Futian walked towards the podium with an odd expression. Even Qian Yang's group stared at his backside, wondering where he was going.
"Who is he?" someone from the Yan Clan asked. Many looked at him curiously. Ye Futian was dressed in all white and looked like a rich noble. He was extremely handsome and one had to admit that his temperament stood out from the crowd. He walked slowly to the podium the Virgin Loulan was at.
Lin Yueyao blinked. Could he do this?
At this moment, the sharp youth beside the Virgin looked to Ye Futian as well and saw that he was calm as if he was someone extremely important.
"May I help you?" he asked.
"I have some questions for the Virgin," Ye Futian said calmly. The sharp youth furrowed his brows but the Virgin Loulan Xue looked over to Ye Futian.
She said, "Let him come."
Thus the youth let him pass. Ye Futian walked to Loulan Xue and asked with a smile, "You cultivate the power of ice, focusing on Spiritual Sorcery, correct?"
Loulan Xue looked at him in shock and asked coolly, "How do you know?"
"You can see one's cultivation from their temperament. Virgin, you are so cold that you naturally cultivate ice. As for Spiritual Sorcery, it can be seen through the eyes," Ye Futian said calmly. He walked to the Virgin's side and looked down at the drilling ground.
The people from the four forces all stared at Ye Futian, dumbfounded. Right now, he stood side by side with the Virgin. His temperament was unsurpassed as if he was someone extraordinary.
"Who is he?" the people of the Yan Clan and Yunxiao Mountain Clan all asked. They looked to Qian Yang, wondering who exactly was the leader of the Qianmeng City. From the looks of Ye Futian's aura besides the Virgin, he seemed to be the one in charge of things.
Qian Yang's expression was twisted while Lin Yueyao looked at Ye Futian speechlessly. "So shameless."
"She's just the Virgin Loulan," Yu Sheng said coolly. What was so special about her? Nowadays, those with high status might not be able to stand beside Ye Futian in the future.
Lin Yueyao glanced at Yu Sheng, speechless again. Did these two not even care about the Virgin of the Ancient Loulan?
Now, Loulan Xue also looked at Ye Futian with some shock. The people of different forces always tried to show off before her, and the people from the four parties had done the same when entering the drilling ground. She'd never expected someone to walk to her so shamelessly.
"Earlier in the banquet, I heard your guard say that there's something that Ancient Loulan wants in the relic," Ye Futian said to her. "If you say what specifically it is, it'll be easier to find."
Loulan Xue looked at him with her silver eyes. "If there are treasurable books in the relic, you can pay special attention to them."
"I understand." Ye Futian nodded and said, "I am in a low plane while I don't fully trust the people with me. If I receive the treasure that the Ancient Loulan wants, I'll hand it over. But will the Virgin protect me once I leave the relic? After all, people will try to forcefully take it from me."
Loulan Xue looked at him. He was in a slightly lower plane but he was still so confident. Still, she nodded. "I will also enter the relic. If you find anything, you can come to me."
"Much thanks." Ye Futian smiled and went back to the crowd.
"What did you say to the Virgin?" Qian Yang came up to ask.
"I asked her what kind of man she likes," Ye Futian replied with a grin. "Young Master, let's go back."
Watching Ye Futian leave, Qian Yang frowned. Was this guy joking? How could he say something like that to the Virgin?
Zhao Han looked at Ye Futian darkly. This bastard never took the normal path. The others all tried to show off to the Virgin while he just walked up and started chatting with her.
Ye Futian was too lazy to worry about what they were thinking. He truly didn't trust Qian Yang. The other hadn't mentioned the relic's situation at all but Ye Futian bet that Qian Yang hadn't investigated it. It would be okay if he couldn't find anything in the relic. If he really did find the treasure, then anything could happen. It was better safe than sorry.
Three days later, many people were grouped deep inside the palace.
Ye Futian's group from the Qianmeng City; the people chosen from the Yan City, Yunxiao City, Jiutian City, and Loulan City; and those who hadn't gone to the drilling ground after the banquet were all present.
Loulan Xue was there as well. She'd personally brought people here. Behind her, there were many guards, all with extraordinary auras. They were clearly trained well and were now elites in the Dharma Plane.
Ye Futian studied them all and then looked to the mysterious group from an unknown place. There were four of themall quiet but with a dangerous aura. They were probably extremely powerful.
There was a gate up ahead. Behind it was a fog zone. One could vaguely see an extremely ancient city wall and gate. That was where the relic was located.
The Loulan Palace was built before the Loulan Relic to guard it.
"Let us set off," the youth beside Loulan Xue said now. Everyone nodded and walked forward.
"Let's go," Qian Yang said. Ye Futian's group stepped out, walking past the gate and into the foggy area.
A strange feeling filled the air. They passed through the fog and the old city wall became clearer.
"The relic is past the city gate. Be careful," the man beside Loulan Xue said. Everyone grew more guarded as they walked towards the old city gate.
Ye Futian activated his Freedom Meditation and looked forward to see through the fog.
