On the way back to the Huangmeng small town, Long Yi and his group heard many people talking about the Fire class Master ArchMage PuXiusi. Many were discussing about the reason why Master ArchMage PuXiusi came to the Huangmang plains.
The silhouette of PuXiusi lingered inside the heart of Long Yi. The terrifying strength that PuXiusi possessed, which caused more than a thousand magicians to lose their fighting capabilities, deeply shocked Long Yi. As Long Yi thought about what would happen if he were in PuXiusi’s shoes, he shook his head. Calculating the odds of himself stopping the battle between so many magicians, Long Yi was not too optimistic of his chances.
After looking through several ancient books lying on the bookshelves inside his space ring, Long Yi knew why PuXiusi was able to instantly create a space which seemed to be without any magic elements. What Pu Xiusi did was to create a kind of magic domain. This domain was created with huge amounts of magic power and spirit power by the caster. Within this domain, with the exception of the domain caster, all other magic and douqi will lose their efficacy, and the caster’s power will be amplified several times.
Not everyone who had attained the rank of Master Archmage would possess the ability to use the Magic Domain. It mainly depends on the word “comprehend”. Till this day, out of the five Master Archmages, only two had the ability to use the Magic Domain. One was Fire class Master ArchMage PuXiusi, and the other was Light pope Charles. Since there is a Magic Domain, a Douqi Domain naturally exists. The Violent Dragon Empire’s Sword Saint Murong Bo could use this Douqi Domain. However, as for which domain was stronger, it was still unknown.
Long Yi was somewhat dejected, as there was an extremely big gap between himself and these top-level experts. If he were to face more than a thousand magicians, then he had no other choice but to sneak away moreover it would seem like running away would prove to be rather difficult for him. Suddenly, Long Yi’s eye lit up, he naturally didn’t have any odds of success against more than a thousand magicians. But against PuXiusi, he might stand a chance. Although douqi and magic would both be ineffective inside his Magic Domain, there was no restriction on his internal force. Since Long Yi was able to use his internal force inside Dragon City’s Forbidden Heaven Prison, it should not be a problem in a Magic Domain. If he used Great Cosmos Shift, in addition to, Heaven Splitting Strike’s top-level palm way—Void Splitting Palm, then he might really stand a chance against PuXiusi. But then again, who knows the true strength of a Master Archmage?
Long Yi suddenly recalled the shock in PuXiusi’s eyes before he left. Long Yi had thought that PuXiusi would look for him after the battle, however, contrary to this thoughts, PuXiusi merely sized him up for a while before vanishing from the battlefield.
Early next morning, Long Yi and his group of eight adventurers began their journey as they set out for the boundless Huangmang plain. According to the mark of Ha Lei’s map that was said to be passed down from his ancestors, Lost city was at the innermost east part of Huangmang plain. En route, they had to cross a large area consisting of nothing but swamps and deserts. Which meant that they had to face various magical beasts along their way.
Perhaps because of the big war between the Nalan and Proud Moon Empire’s magicians yesterday, there were very few people heading to the Huangmang plain to do their missions. It certainly didn’t seem like the rumors where hoards of adventurers would set out to the Huangmang plain early in the morning, and that people could be seen everywhere in the plains.t
The outskirts regions of the Huangmang plain basically didn’t contain any danger as only low class magical beasts appear here. As such, Long Yi and his group had an easy time as they were chatting and laughing throughout their journey. Among the eight of them, Fire magician Ge Leite seemed too unwilling to make friendly conversation with the others, Light magician Lan Tian only spoke occasionally, the fierce looking Advance Fighter Shi Yan was bad with words and looked like he was trying to listen to what the rest was talking about with a serious face. Ha Lei and Barbarian Bull both possessed the loudest voice. The voices of these two came out like thunder as their saliva splattered everywhere as they were talking. Long Yi was humorously teasing Lu Xiya throughout their journey which resulted in a joyous and harmonious atmosphere between the two of them. As for Leng Youyou, she still had a stiff face. She merely spoke to Lu Xiya in whispers occasionally and no one knew what they were talking about.
Just like this, one day passed unknowingly. Long Yi and his group put up several tents, lit a bonfire and sat around it while looking at several fire rabbits being roasted in that bonfire. All of them were shot dead by Lu Xiya, which finally allowed Long Yi to observe a magic archer in action. The magic element changed into arrows, and its speed was very fast. those fire rabbits did not even have time to react before being shot to death..
“Long Yi, is the meat still not ready?, I’m already starving to death.” Lu Xiya helplessly looked at the few pieces of meat roasted by the crackling fire which were releasing a dense fragrance.
“Wait a moment, it is about to finish, you little cat, even your saliva is dripping out.” Long Yi said with a smile. At this moment the meat changed into gold color, as the fat from the meat began to drip on the ground. The sight of the glistening gold droplets of fire rabbit fat dripping, in addition to the fragrance emitted from the cooked meat, it would even tempt a celestial being.
“Hateful, big stupid bull is salivating even more than me.” Lu Xiya protested coquettishly while pointing towards Barbarian bull. But Barbarian bull was staring at the rabbit meat without even blinking his bull eyes, and swallowed a mouthful of saliva which appeared especially loud and clear in this quiet night.
Very soon Long Yi quickly took out some seasonings and smeared it on the meat. The fragrance from the meat suddenly amplified which made it smell even more appetizing.. This time all eight of them simultaneously swallowed their saliva.
Altogether there were four fire rabbit, so each person was given half. Unable to hold themselves back after smelling the delicious meat, the eight of them immediately began to nibble at the meat.
Barbarian Bull was the fastest, the half fire rabbit he was holding disappeared as he quickly shoved everything in his mouth. After swallowing, he smacked his lips and enviously stared at the meat everyone else was holding in their hands.
Have to say that the meat quality of fire rabbit was very high and Long Yi’s meat roasting skill was also very high, so it was extremely tasty. Even Lu Xiya and Leng Youyou, these two girls nibbled at their half of the roasted fire rabbit just like little children and left nothing behind.
“Very delicious, Long Yi. Hereafter you are responsible to roast the meat for us to eat, okay?” Lu Xiya purposed this proposal, and everyone immediately approved this unanimously.
“All right?” Seeing Long Yi was not answering her, Lu Xiya used a girl’s trump card of acting spoiled. Both of her hands held Long Yi’s arm and pressed his arm against her pair of **.
Long Yi immediately lift up his head, made a wry smile as he replied, “Well, of course, merely we should first resolve the trouble we are in.”
“Trouble? What trouble?” Just after Lu Xiya asked, suddenly her complexion changed, she abruptly stood up, and a dark green bow instantly appeared in her hand.
At this moment the others finally sensed oppressive feeling in the air, as they all stood up and assumed their fighting posture instantly. Just a moment ago, Long Yi discovered that there was something wrong as the humming of insects disappeared suddenly. Probably because a powerful magical beast intruded in the area.
The atmosphere of the surroundings became even more oppressive, and Long Yi and his group of eight were somewhat nervous. From the fluctuation coming from the beast, it was an understatement to say that this magical beast was a B-class magical beast. Calling it A-class magical beast was more appropriate. At this time, an almost transparent white eye appeared in the dark. Looking at the size of these eyes, this magical beast seemed very petite.
Questions suddenly appeared in Long Yi’s mind,: “What is this magical beast? So strange.”
This unknown magical beast with white eyes approached closer and closer, and everyone also became more and more nervous. Finally after a short while, the appearance of this magical beast became visible under the moonlight. Long Yi discovered that this high-level magical beast was in fact a half black half white baby tiger. Its left half was pitch-black and its right half was snowy white, one of its eyeball was white and other eyeball was black. Merely, that black colored eye couldn’t be clearly seen under the dim moonlight.
“What a lovely little tiger.” Lu Xiya exclaimed, as she set down her bow which had been aimed at the beast all along.
“Are you insane Lu Xiya, it might be an A-class magical beast.” Ha Lei anxiously roared, as no one could guarantee that this harmless looking little tiger will not attack them.
“Come on, don’t be too nervous, this little thing seems to have no ill intention towards us.” Looking at that little tiger which was looking at them with curiosity, Long Yi said. It would already have attacked them if it was a ferocious magical beast.
Shrugging its little nose, it looked towards the ground at those bones of the fire rabbits. Its little face revealed a happy expression which made it seem really cute. Long Yi understood why the little tiger had wandered over to them, it seemed like the fragrance of the roasted meat attracted this baby tiger over.
“Little tiger, come over here to sister.” Lu Xiya squat down, then spread open her hands towards this little tiger. She obviously regarded this little tiger as a child as she called out to it like how she would a human child.
The little tiger looked at Lu Xiya for a while but didn’t respond, then its pair of tiger eyes landed on Long Yi’s body and immediately showed an excited expression. After trotting past Lu Xiya, it went to circle Long Yi twice before it suddenly lifted both its forelegs, placing its forelegs on Long Yi’s lap. After that it stared at Long Yi with its one white and one black eyes, purring nonstop.
Long Yi picked up this little tiger in confusion as he thought to himself, “this little tiger obviously has a B-class or even A-class magical beast aura. How could it behave so intimately with me?” Lifting his hand, Long Yi rubbed the little tiger’s head, and the little tiger purred twice with an confortable look on its face..
“It must have determined you as its mother.” Lu Xiya jealously said. She didn’t expect that this little tiger actually ignored her, and instead nested in the embrace of Long Yi.
Long Yi asked with a smile: “Does anyone know what magical beast is this?”
Everyone shook their head in succession, before Ha Lei said, “Never seen or heard about this type of strange magical beast. And this type of magical beast is also not marked on the map.”
Henceforth, this little tiger became the ninth member of this adventurers group. It had a very big appetite, everyday, it would eat ten fire rabbits before it was contented. Everyone discovered that, other than this powerful aura, this little fellow basically didn’t have any means of attack. However, thanks to the aura of an A-class magical beast this little tiger was emitting, the other magical beasts would avoid their group.
Long Yi, this lazybones directly named this little tiger, Long Three [San = 3]. Long Two [Er = 2] was naturally that blood red skeleton which held that blood-colored sickle. From this day on, one human, one tiger and one skeleton became three brothers. Lu Xiya seriously protested on the name of this little tiger, and privately named it Bai Jiahei [Black plus White] (sweat““`), but the little tiger was only fond of the name Long Three. Every time Long Yi yelled, “Little Three, quickly roll over here.” It would immediately eagerly rush over to Long Yi and wag its tail.
Synopsis: Somewhere in the universe, there was an altar. On it, laid a bloody eye as big as the sun itself. It burst with light and bathed the entire star system in red.
"The aura of an ancestral artifact!" Someone's voice rose in surprise.
The Great Galactic Era had begun.
