“Holy sh*t! Little brat, what are you doing? Where are you going?” Buttface shouted in surprise as he reached out his paws and tried to drag Xu Que back. However, all his efforts were in vain.
The flowing of the sand grains was getting even faster. Xu Que was not being pulled down forcibly, but sinking slowly as if he was standing on the water’s surface. After a short while, half of Xu Que’s body had sunk into the sand. Buttface could only see his chest and head now.
“Hey! Little brat, just try to get out! I can’t stop you from sinking!” Buttface shouted and clenched his teeth. He had tried with all his might but still couldn’t move Xu Que a bit.
“Wait! Buttface! I think this could be the correct way to go into the underground area! Only those who have acquired the God of Hell’s Compulsion could…” Xu Que said for he had figured out something. Before he could finish his words, he was totally devoured by the sand grains. When he disappeared, the flowing of the sand grains was also stopped as if nothing had happened.
“Holy sh*t! Holy sh*t!” Buttface was dumbfounded. Then he started to try and excavate the sand hurriedly. However, this place was just like a desert. No matter how hard he tried, the hole he dug was filled up by the sand grains soon.
“Oh, no, this guy will take an exclusive possession of the inheritance! Let me go with him!” Buttface was so angry that he even started to jump on the place where Xu Que had been devoured by the sand. But he didn’t sink into the sand.
At the same time, Xu Que felt his feet had landed on the ground again. Now, everything went black for a while. Then, after landing on the ground, he realized his sinking in the sand hadn’t lasted long. When he stood on the ground, he looked up and found he was in an extremely vast and dark area where the ceiling was too high to be seen. This place was like an abyss. He was surrounded by white clouds and mists. In front of him, there was a path paved with slabs of stone. A step could be seen at the end of this path which led to a higher area. However, Xu Que was too far away to see the things at the top of the step clearly.
To Xu Que’s surprise, he saw a lot of corpses on both sides of this stone path. Some of them were like mummies. Some of them were skeletons. And some of them were just bone ash!
It seems a lot of people have come to this place before me! Xu Que frowned as he talked to himself. Apparently, he was not the first one to come to this place. If his speculation that only those who had acquired the God of Hell’s Compulsion could enter this place was correct, a lot of people should have entered this place throughout long periods of time. But all of them had died on this stone path, which meant it was extremely dangerous!
It seems I can’t tread on this path! Xu Que became serious. Then he started to check the rest of the places which were covered by the clouds and mists. However, he got a bad feeling about these clouds and mists, which were totally different than those in the outside world. He could only feel repression and even suffocation from them.
Xu Que reached out his hand and tried to check those clouds and mists.
When his finger had just touched them, a big bang rang out from Xu Que’s body. Then his bronze armor, which was wrapped in a green halo, cracked directly. He changed his expression and took back his hand immediately. A strand of cold sweat appeared on his forehead for he had been shocked.
Then, a crisp sound of metal could be heard as a broken bronze sheet fell to the ground. It was the defensive Inferior Celestial Artifact which had lost all its Spiritual Qi!
“These clouds and mists are so powerful!” Xu Que couldn’t help but exclaim in surprise. He had only tried to check those clouds and mists. He didn’t expect that his bronze armor would be damaged when his finger had just touched the clouds and mists. His life was saved by that armor. But the point was that this bronze armor, which was an Inferior Celestial Artifact, was damaged instantly, which meant those clouds and mists were extremely horrible!
“I’m really in big trouble now!” Xu Que became more serious. He could go nowhere on the ground. So the only way might be in the space above his head. He looked up at the sky.
“Hah, hah, hah!” Suddenly, a coarse and weird laughter rang throughout the chamber.
Xu Que was shocked because he didn’t expect anyone else was alive in this place. But why didn’t I sense any aura?
He noticed that voice came from the stone path. However, he didn’t know who was laughing among those corpses. Almost at the same time, that coarse voice could be heard again.
“I didn’t expect someone would come to seek his death in this place again after so many years! Wait! He is just a young man at the Medium Stage of the Human Celestial Stage. My fellow cultivators, look, we got newbies! Old Bai, look!”
Then the entire area became silent again.
The next moment, that coarse voice continued. It seemed this guy was surprised.
“Hey! Old Bai, what are you doing? Don’t tell me you are dead now!”
“Holy sh*t! Old Lin, old Lin! Why do you also keep silent? Are you also dead?”
“My God! Does it mean I am the only man alive here? Anybody else here? Alas! Oh, I almost forgot this newbie! Good! Good! The new guy could chat with me to keep me from being bored!” The voice echoed in this area.
However, Xu Que still didn’t find the one who was talking to him.
“Who are you?” Xu Que didn’t want to waste his time in searching. So he asked directly.
“Hah, hah, you asked me, right? We are the same for both of us are greedy! That Mighty Body of Hades is meaningless for we will die here!” A strand of mania and rage could be sensed from that coarse voice.
“Heh! You will die here! I won’t!” Hearing that, Xu Que said with a wicked smile.
Crack! The next moment, a dry corpse in a white robe turned around and looked at Xu Que with his hollow eyes.
Xu Que smiled for he had found the source of the voice!
“Humph! In this place, you are also a dead man! Look around, you are surrounded by the ghost fog which could kill you instantly. You can only walk on this path! But…you will also die on it!” The dry corpse didn’t open his mouth but his coarse voice could still be heard.
Xu Que pointed at the sky above his head and asked, “I can fly in the sky, right?”
“Fly? Hah, hah, you can try it!” The dry corpse laughed loudly.
Xu Que twitched his lips. He felt his cultivation achievements were not banned. However, according to the words of that dry corpse, it seemed he couldn’t go to his destination by flying. Above his head, the sky was pitch-dark and just like an endless tunnel. Anyway, what the corpse said made sense. If people could fly in this place, the horrible clouds and mists here would be totally useless!
“Hah, hah! Young man, don’t make blind and disorderly conjectures. The path in front of you is the only way for you here. All the rest of the places are…no, no, you can only find dead ends here! But your death on the path in front of you won’t be very fast! So, come in and let’s chat!” The dry corpse said with a smile.
Xu Que shook his head, “Nothing will happen if I just sit here and go nowhere, right?”
“Sure! You can do that! When you sit here for a long time and your life is about to run out, you will still come in!” The coarse voice was full of sarcasm. It seemed Xu Que’s decision was so familiar to him. Maybe he had even made the same decision like that!
Xu Que nodded his head with a smile. Then, he activated the System, “System, check how can I leave this place!”
Then he looked at the dry corpse and said with a faint smile, “Senior, if you want to have a chat, let’s talk about this place, OK?”
