“How… could this be?” someone said in terror.
This sudden change had shocked everyone.
The Desolation City had been abandoned for many years, the Spiritual Qi in the city exhausted inexplicably. Since the Celestial Burial Valley was also in this area, almost no commoners or cultivators were willing to go there.
If Jiang Hongyan hadn’t been there, maybe none of these cultivators would have appeared.
“What happened in the Desolation City? Why was it turned into a celestial city so suddenly? Could it be that a celestial artifact was found?” someone asked abruptly.
Many people were tempted by the thought.
An exhausted, ancient city that had been abandoned was floating in the sky like a celestial city. The scene was quite spooky. Maybe some celestial artifacts really had been found!
“The Desolation City is so close to the Celestial Burial City. Maybe the celestial who died in that valley left something in the Desolation City that was about to be found!” someone started to guess.
However, more people frowned and gravely stayed silent.
Even Xu Que was totally shocked, a little bit nervous.
The Desolation City looked like the legendary celestial city, which floated in the sky encircled by Spiritual Fog. However, he had unrest hidden in his heart.
According to the facial expression of some powerhouses in the area, they were also haunted by unrest.
“Little brat, something must… be wrong! I have a vague memory of this scene, but I can’t recall it clearly!” Buttface came to Xu Que and said, confused, at this moment.
“Have you ever seen this celestial city before?” Xu Que asked in surprise.
Buttface shook his head strenuously and said doubtfully, “No, but I have a sense of familiarity from it!”
“Really? Don’t joke around!” Xu Que was quite suspicious. However, it seemed Buttface wasn’t kidding from his expression.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Suddenly, numerous streamers flew across the sky, all papers with messages on them.
People were stunned and looked up immediately, then their faces lit up.
These message delivering papers had come from the Desolation City. Apparently, the cultivators in the Desolation City had sent them messages.
All at once, many people were eager to find out who the recipients of the papers were so that later, they could inquire what had happened in the Desolation City.
However, to their surprise, these messages didn’t have specific recipients. While they were flying over the cultivators’ heads, these message delivering papers exploded, one after another. Then closely-packed and messy voices came from the sky.
“What’s going on? Why did the Spiritual Qi in this area suddenly become intense?”
“Oh, no! It seems like the city is alive…”
“What? An Ancient Bronze Hall?”
“The door to the hall opened by itself! Should we go inside and have a look?”
“What? The Spiritual Qi is so intense… No! Is this… Heavenly Qi?”
“Ah! Spare my life, please… Hahaha… I’m going to become immortal!”
Finally, the voices in all the message delivering papers stopped abruptly amidst the manic laughing.
Everyone watching with widened eyes was greatly shocked!
The atmosphere immediately became creepy, because the laughing was not only manic, but also quite spooky, especially the one guy who had been screaming for help starting to laugh sharply and saying he would become immortal the next moment!
By the end, almost all of them had been laughing creepily, which was as unsettling as someone scratching a chalkboard with their fingernails!
“I heard someone mention the Ancient Bronze Hall just now! How could an Ancient Bronze Hall appear in the Desolation City?” said Xiao Munan, the Holy Son of the Heavenly Demon Sect, while furrowing his brows.
“It’s more than that! It seems they also found the Heavenly Qi!” said Qin Ji, the Holy Virgin of the Illusionary Flower & Moon Sect.
“Could it be that these people had hallucinations?” Xiao Taixuan was also suspicious.
Only hallucinations could explain the manic laughing at the end.
Just at this moment, another deafening explosion sounded.
After that, the entire Desolation City, which was like a celestial city, suddenly exploded into a constant rain of crushed stones from the sky.
However, the Spiritual Fog didn’t dissipate, instead becoming more intense. Moreover, the Desolation City wasn’t ruined. It seemed it was molting.
The buildings at the outer layer had been totally ruined by the explosion. Countless crushed stones were falling from the city.
In a blink of an eye, the ancient city was turned into an Ancient Bronze Hall, which looked quite ethereal in the flickering Spiritual Fog.
All the people in the area couldn’t help gasping and changing their expressions.
There really is an Ancient Bronze Hall!
Moreover, this Ancient Bronze Hall was hidden in the Desolation City! Now that the city is ruined, its real appearance is revealed.
“It isn’t a hallucination! We’re too far away to be influenced!” someone shouted to deny Xiao Taixuan’s guess.
“Could it be that the entire area’s Spiritual Qi was exhausted by this Ancient Bronze Hall?”
“Wait! I remembered something!” Buttface widened his eyes and shouted loudly, “This is an Immortal Mansion! A celestial was buried in the Celestial Burial Valley during those years. This Ancient Bronze Hall flew out from the body of that celestial!”
All of a sudden, everyone was shocked by Buttface’s words.
Xu Que was also stunned, then anxious to slap Buttface to death!
An Immortal Mansion? If you knew it was an Immortal Mansion, why did you shout it out loud?
“Little brat, let’s go and have a look! There’s a fortune in it!” Buttface shouted excitedly and grabbed Xu Que’s arm.
Everyone in the area fixed their eyes on Xu Que and Buttface instantly.
They weren’t fools. Among the many people around, only Buttface had recognized the Ancient Bronze Hall and knew it had flown out of a celestial’s body. No matter whether it was true or not, they had to get more information from Buttface.
The creepy laugh from the messages made them feel more certain that they would be in danger in the Ancient Bronze Hall. The only way for them to get the fortune was to go along with the dog!
“Buddy, the Carefree Building needs five places for healing!” At just this moment, Dong Genji spoke suddenly while throwing a storage ring at Xu Que. “There are five million of the best-grade Spirit Stones in this ring. Please ask your pet to heal our wounds immediately!”
His words reminded the others.
Right! We’re still seriously wounded. If we can’t heal our wounds in time, we won’t have the strength to look for the fortune!
All at once, the powerhouses of the big families and sects stepped out to stop Dong Genji and his men, as well as to stop Xu Que and Buttface from leaving.
“Dong Genji, isn’t your Carefree Building too greedy? There are fifteen places altogether. How could you ask for five places for yourself? This is outrageous!”
“My young friend, could your pet heal wounds for even more people?” someone asked while looking at Xu Que.
“Please heal my wounds first! You can ask for as many Spirit Stones as you want from me!” One was anxious to give his storage ring to Xu Que.
They had seen the Ancient Bronze Hall with their own eyes! No matter if it was from a celestial’s body or not, this Ancient Bronze Hall would be extraordinary, and there would definitely be great treasure in it!
The situation became chaotic immediately.
Someone tried to approach Xu Que so that he could kill Xu Que and then rob Xu Que’s storage rings.
Without any hesitation, Xu Que rushed out of the crowd with Buttface, simultaneously using the Three Thousand Volts Lightning. When they were beside Jiang Hongyan and Liu Jingning, Xu Que snorted, “Now you should give me a list of fifteen names! If you dare to come any closer, I will leave immediately!”
After saying that, Xu Que took out a Divine Escape Spell and stared at the cultivators in warning.
Hearing his words, the cultivators calmed down.
Meanwhile, they were more certain that Buttface had magic arts to heal wounds. In this case, Xu Que could have escaped, for he had no reason to cure them, but he had chosen to stay, because he needed Spirit Stones!
One million best-grade Spirit Stones for each person—this was a pretty high price. However, it was nothing compared to the fortune in the Ancient Bronze Hall. Moreover, these guys were quite confident that they could take back the Spirit Stones they gave to Xu Que.
However, the current problem is that there are over 200 seriously-wounded powerhouses in the Void Training Stage in this area.
That dog can heal only fifteen people. How can we decide?
Unless… some of us die first!
As they thought of it, the powerhouses of the big families and sects stepped back vigilantly and stared at each other maliciously.
