"This place should be safe!"
Wang Chong walked forward and lightly sniffed. There was a strange scent in the air, like something was being burned.
This should be the smell of this green smoke! Wang Chong noted to himself.
Based on the feedback from his Psychic Energy, there was no one else here, but for some reason, Wang Chong felt uneasy.
"There's a stone bridge up ahead!" The Lone Silence Ancestor's voice rang out in everyone's ears, and the man himself immediately rushed forward, going past the third-generation successor.
Wang Chong reached out with his right hand to call back the Lone Silence Ancestor, but the man moved too quickly. In the blink of an eye, he had run out of the corridor and reached the cliff.
Several sounds came from up ahead, and the group soon spotted a familiar figure in front of them. It was the Lone Silence Ancestor, and in front of him, two lanterns had lit up, one on each side.
At the bottom of the lanterns, a dark blue light flashed by, seeming to extend forward with a life of its own, lighting up the second row, third row A line of lanterns was soon lit, stretching into the haze.
These points of cold light finally lit up this lightless world, and in the haze, an ancient stone bridge emerged.
The stone bridge was only about two feet wide, and it followed the course of the lanterns as it extended into the abyss, a passage to a mysterious world.
"Look; there are words here!" The Lone Silence Ancestor's gleeful voice came from up ahead, and one could hear the excitement in it.
"It's a stone stele! The Immortal-Crossing Bridge!"
As the group turned to look, they really did see a stele next to the bridge, around three feet tall.
Wang Chong immediately stepped forward, but after taking two steps, he glanced at the lanterns burning on the bridge and suddenly had an ill foreboding.
"Wait! Someone's been here!" Wang Chong suddenly called out. "Master, watch out!"
This warning came so abruptly that the Demonic Emperor Old Man, the Lone Silence Ancestor, and the Wushang Village Chief all turned to Wang Chong in shock.
Just when they were wondering in confusion why Wang Chong had done this, they heard a cold sneer.
"Haha, truly the Great Tang's King of Foreign Lands. Even this was enough for you to notice something fishy! I underestimated you!" An icy voice suddenly emerged from the dark world and echoed throughout the space.
A sinister and dark energy erupted out of nowhere, sweeping toward the group like a storm.
And most frightening of all was that this terrifying energy had appeared on the rock wall of the passage, only a few feet from the group.
Everyone paled in shock. No one had expected someone to be hiding so close, and most shocking of all was that despite their close proximity, Wang Chong's Psychic Energy had never even sensed him.
And the Demonic Emperor Old Man and Wushang Village Chief, despite being so nearby, also had not sensed anything.
Like a ghost, this person had perfectly avoided everyone's senses.
The world swayed and shook as an explosive energy hurtled toward the group.
So great was the destructive power in this pitch-black energy that the entire world seemed to tremble in fear.
The Demonic Emperor Old Man and Wushang Village Chief grimaced as they attacked in unison. Wang Chong also gathered up all his Stellar Energy and sent it hurtling forward, and even the third-generation successor that was twenty meters ahead turned around to face this new foe.
Though the attack had come abruptly, the group had managed to react quickly.
Yet they still ended up underestimating the strength and shrewdness of this man. He had been hiding in the rock wall for some time, waiting until the group was separated, the Lone Silence Ancestor at the bridge and the third-generation successor leading the group, to launch his explosive assault.
The moment the four streams of Stellar Energy clashed in the air, that man's aura suddenly disappeared. Despite being outnumbered, he was not at all outmatched.
The Demonic Emperor Old Man seemed to sense something and called out in panic, "Not good! Chong-er, watch out!"
But it was too late. In a flash of light, an imposing figure appeared in front of Wang Chong and made to seize him.
Wang Chong's heart chilled and he immediately sent all his Stellar Energy at this foe, but Wang Chong had still underestimated his foe's strength.
Bang! As the two Stellar Energies clashed, Wang Chong felt like he had struck at a mountain. His opponent had attacked silently, but his attack was imbued with a domineering and explosive power that had blasted apart Wang Chong's Stellar Energy.
There was a shriek like the wailing of ghosts. The enemy's black Stellar Energy seemed to have a life of its own, as after blasting through Wang Chong's Stellar Energy, it drilled into his body.
At his peak condition, Wang Chong might have been able to put up a fight and make life more difficult for his foe, but his adversary had seemingly noticed that Wang Chong was heavily injured and had yet to recover. This was precisely why he had chosen to attack him.
A slender white hand, as cold as ice, gripped Wang Chong's neck.
"If anyone takes another step forward, I'll snap his neck!"
As the voice resounded in everyone's ears, the voice's owner clenched their fingers.
The Demonic Emperor Old Man and Wushang Village Chief, who were already rushing over, were compelled to stop and call back their Stellar Energy.
"And that little pet of yours! Did you think I didn't notice? Have him retreat."
This voice, which had a light Hu accent, echoed in everyone's ears.
Time seemed to stop. Behind Wang Chong, the third-generation successor seemed to almost angrily step back.
The distant Lone Silence Ancestor went stiff, so shocked that he couldn't speak. He had only gone up to look at the stone stele and bridge, never expecting something like this.
The three of them and the walking corpse were now too afraid to move for fear of the consequences.
"Bagushidu, what are you up to?!"
Wang Chong immediately recognized his attacker. Even though he was weak and suppressed, Wang Chong could still use his Psychic Energy.
"Heh, King of Foreign Lands, you're really not someone to be underestimated!"
The man laughed. He was wearing a black robe and had a scholarly and refined appearance. It was impossible to associate him with the man who had been waiting in hiding this entire time and had ambushed the group.
Bagushidu could be said to have been the most enigmatic character throughout this northwest adventure. From the opening of the Origin Immortal Formation to the opening of the treasury, Wang Chong and the others had not even seen him, and while everyone was fighting for their lives over the Origin Immortal Treasury, Bagushidu seemed to not care at all.
No one had expected that the inconspicuous and enigmatic Eastern Turkic King would appear here, and he had clearly reached the heart of the Origin Immortal Treasury much earlier than everyone else.
It was apparent that he had smoothly arrived without alarming either the third- or second-generation successors.
This was simply unbelievable!
"It seems like everyone underestimated you. I didn't think you had the ability to deceive everyone's senses. Not even the Origin Immortal Art successors were able to notice. It's no wonder you never seemed to be in any rush," Wang Chong coldly said.
Wang Chong rarely made mistakes, but this time, he was forced to admit that he had truly underestimated this man. There were times when one's true enemy wasn't necessarily someone who could be seen. The most fatal attack often came from places beyond one's vision.
"Heh, the King of Foreign Lands praises me too much. But if you don't want to die, I would have your master, those two seniors, and that walking corpse stand a little farther away."
Bagushidu smiled. Even in this tense and dangerous situation, he continued to maintain his style and grace.
Wang Chong's heart shivered. Bagushidu might have appeared pleasant, but his grip on Wang Chong's neck had never once slackened, and had actually tightened. This was clearly an extremely dangerous man.
"Bagushidu, if you dare to harm my disciple, this old man will never let you go!"
The Demonic Emperor Old Man's face was ashen pale, but despite his threat, he slowly backed away.
"It's said that the Demonic Emperor of the Central Plains is a vicious man who always get his way and never bows his head. It seems like you truly adore your disciple!"
Bagushidu smiled as he confidently strode forward, his hand still gripped around Wang Chong's neck.
His pace didn't slow down at all as he spoke, and at the same time, a wicked black Stellar Energy alien to the Central Plains flowed through his arm and began to creep through Wang Chong's body.
Wang Chong mustered all his strength, but he was still powerless to resist. In just a few seconds, all his meridians and acupuncture points were under his enemy's control.
This man What frightening strength!
Wang Chong's mind shivered as he stared at the smiling Bagushidu.
