The battle ended before Huan Qing Yan could participate in it.
Only after the demons ran away did Huan Qing Yan find time to check the environment, as well as the people who were fighting earlier…
This was a very grand looking palace and on the top of the door, it displayed the words: King’s Palace.
Everything was carved from huge stones, making the place looked as though it were created naturally as there were no gaps or spaces to be found within the structures and pillars. On the stone walls were myriad of colorful paintings, when looked at in detail, some of the pictures seemed similar to the Stone Steles found outside.
There were humanoid in various poses.
The most special and weird about this place was the existence of several coffins inside the palace.
Each coffin looked similar, rigid and rectangular, arranged neatly and equally spaced.
They were all dark and sinister looking, sending chills down to whoever looked at them.
The demons mentioned about giving up the Corpse King Palace… does that mean that all the coffins were holding zombies within them?
On the roof of the palace were the pictures of various animals that felt like spirit treasures.
As she was checking the area, a surprised voice reached her, “Huan Qing Yan? Is that really you! I thought my eyes were playing tricks earlier…”
Huan Qing Yan turned her head, “Le Guo’er? Why are you here?”
The humans and demons were mixed and scattered about during the fight earlier on.
Le Guo’er was at a secluded location, and her back was facing her, that was why Huan Qing Yan did not manage to recognize her immediately.
“Hahaha, we came here with Big Brother Bai Li. We encountered a demon outside, a Marmot Demon and fell into this place while fighting it. It was Big Brother Bai Li who saved us, and we started exploring this place since.” Le Guo’er happily introduced the remaining people.
A wandering cultivator, someone from Pinnacle Academia, another from Frost Ice Academia and one more from Nine States Academia.
The last one was a Mystic Spirit Master whom everyone called Senior Brother Bai Li.
Within the Eight Great Clans, only the main branch members could use the title of Young Master.
The branch members would not be able to use the title of Young Master. Therefore the people of the same generation would usually refer to them as Senior Brother or Sister instead.
“Greetings Senior Brother Bai Li!” Huan Qing Yan and Bai Cheng Feng greeted the senior.
Senior Brother Bai Li swept his gaze pass Bai Cheng Feng before his sights fell upon Huan Qing Yan. His gaze looked complicated as he looked inquiringly and sized her up…
“Okay, the demons have escaped but they may call reinforcements later, let us all work together to close the doors of the palace!” Senior Brother Bai Li retracted his gaze and suggested.
Bai Cheng Feng frowned and said, “The stone door is extremely heavy, it will not be easy for us to open it once we closed it?”
“No matter, with Senior Brother Bai Li here, it would not be difficult. Senior Brother Bai Li is a Mid-Stage Spirit Master, if the demons ambushed us while we are looking for the treasures, it would be dangerous…” the wandering cultivator said.
The others were all treating Senior Brother Bai Li with reverence, so no one objected.
Someone even added, “If you guys are afraid of being stuck here, then you can leave. The six of us should be enough to close that huge door.”
Le Guo’er started to feel hurried, “How could you do that? Bai Cheng Feng and Huan Qing Yan were both members of the Surging Wave Academia and had also aided us in forcing the demons into retreat. We should stay as a group, why are you asking them to leave?”
During this period Senior Brother Bai Li did not speak, he only looked at Bai Cheng Feng and Huan Qing Yan with a smile that did not look like a smile.
Giving off the intention of leaving the final decision to the others.
Within this place, he possessed the highest cultivation and was also the most popular person here.
