Long Yi held the reins of the ice silk very tightly. No matter how this beast struggled, he didn’t let it go. This ice silk was extremely tough and tensile, how could a mere marsh human eating beast have the ability to snap it? Made from an SS-class magical beast, the Ice Silkworm Ruyi’s essence, it would be difficult for even forbidden magic to damage it.,
As the reins got tighter and tighter, the marsh human eating beast was nearly unable to breathe. Its struggles became weaker and weaker with each passing moment. It once again tried to enter the depths of the marsh, but with Long Yi exerting all his strength to pull on the ice silk, this marsh human eating beast could only float to the surface like an obedient pet. It realised that whenever it stopped struggling, the human would loosen his grip on the ice silk a little.
Before long Long Yi saw that the marsh human eating beast had stopped struggling. Whenever Long Yi twisted the ice silk to the side, the marsh human eating beast would follow his movement and obediently move according to the direction of the ice silk. It seemed to understand that its little life was in Long Yi’s hands, and the only chance for it to live was to follow his commands.
Long Yi made the correct decision, as using this beast to cross the marsh could ensure the safety of the whole team. Riding on it, the rest of the marsh human eating beasts would voluntarily avoid them, not to mention that the blood red bugs would never go near this beast. Crossing the last 300 meters became a piece of cake to the team at this point.
Just when Ha Lei and others were endlessly worried, the bugs flying in the sky slowly settled down. Everyone that was watching the battle had their hearts in their throat. As they knew that the settling of the bugs meant the end of the battle between Long Yi and the marsh human eating beast king, they were anxious to see the outcome of the battle.
When this blood colored bugs wall disappeared, everybody cheered. Seeing Long Yi mightily standing on the back of the marsh human eating beast king, they immediately knew that Long Yi had won the battle and found a way for the rest of them to cross the marsh. This big guy who was known as the king of the marsh was now obediently swimming towards them under the control of Long Yi. It didn’t matter what dangerous beasts there were in the marsh. The blood red bugs and other marsh human eating beasts all avoided the marsh human eating beast king with Long Yi standing safely in its back. In this brief moment, at least for a brief moment, Lan Tian and Ha Lei’s eyes showed respect in them when looking at Long Yi. They didn’t understand, how did such an outstanding character remain nameless in the Blue Waves Continent?
“Ha Lei, your mission reward is mine, don’t forget it.” Long Yi said while laughing heartily after the marsh human eating beast king arrived at the shore under his control.
“No problem, I, Ha Lei never go back on my word.” Ha Lei boldly exclaimed. Now that they could cross the sea of blood red beasts and reach Lost City, Ha Lei was extremely delighted.
“You all quickly put on the skin and come over. It’s almost daybreak.” Long Yi said. These marsh human eating beasts were sure to sink down into the marsh at daybreak, as they were nocturnal animals.
All of them hurriedly wrapped themselves with the skin from the other marsh human eating beasts and jump onto the back of marsh human eating beast king. After seeing that everyone had got on, Long Yi moved his hand which was holding the ice silk. Upon his command, the marsh human eating beast king turned to face the bank on the other side and began swimming towards it with the six humans on its back.
They crossed this distance of 300 meters in a flash, as everyone immediately jumped off and landed on the opposite bank. As soon as they stepped on the green grass on the other side of the marsh, Long Yi excitedly rolled around the grassland. For nearly 20 days, regardless of spirit or **, Long Yi had suffered maximum torment in this abominable marsh region.
Along with the red glow in the horizon, all the marsh human eating beasts sank into the marsh. Only the blood red sea of blood coloured bugs remained as dazzling as before..
Six people quickly rushed to the low hills ahead of them, and far away in the distance, they could faintly see the remnants of a city.
Ha Lei fished out the map, then pointed at the ruins., Laughing loudly, he said, “That place is that oft-referred-to Lost city, finally we are here.”
“Then what are we waiting for? We should quickly head over there!” Lan Tian excitedly said. He thought that there were innumerable treasures waiting for him at Lost City. This true devotee of Light God was too impatient to wait as he started running towards Lost City.
All six people ran wildly towards that oft-referred-to Lost city. While running, Long Yi suddenly stopped. Long Yi immediately became vigilant as the skull mark on the middle of his left hand’s palm suddenly vibrated.
“What’s wrong?” Seeing Long Yi stop running all of a sudden, everyone couldn’t help but ask.
“This place seems somewhat not quite right…” Long Yi looked all around them. They were surrounded by lush green grass, which made a beautiful sight. However, they all gradually began to feel a dark aura fluctuating around them.
Hearing what Long Yi said, the others immediately got nervous. They knew the abilities of Long Yi, so if he said that something was wrong, then he must have felt something.
“It’s true, something is wrong here. This place seems to have a dark aura surrounding it.” Lan Tian closed his eyes and sensed for a little while, before he confirmed Long Yi’s words. Since he was a light magician, he was extremely sensitive to the fluctuation of dark aura.
“Seems like its just dark aura, that is normal. According to legend, Lost City was the city cursed by the Dark God, so having a dark aura around the city is not strange at all.” Ha Lei quickly told the rest of the group the stories he read before.
“Well, there was a legend like that.” Leng Youyou added.
“Then let’s continue forward. Everyone be a little bit more careful, since this city was cursed by Dark God, this place is definitely dangerous.” Long Yi warned, before grabbing the hands of Lu Xiya and Leng Youyou. He didn’t know why, but a strong sense of crisis appeared in Long Yi’s heart. This Lost city was definitely not simple.
After a little while, Lost city’s outline became clearly visible. This city naturally used to be a grand city. Merely looking at the incomplete lofty city walls, and the pillars which seemed to be supporting the heavens, it was not hard to see that this city was once part of an extremely magnificent civilisation..
The closer he got to Lost city, the stronger the feeling of crisis became. This entire world was lifeless. From the marsh regions to this place, they failed to see a single living creature. Everything was very strange, which made the six of them uneasy..
Suddenly an evil wind blew over, and the sky which was illuminated by the sunlight suddenly became hazy. The moment the sunlight disappeared, a thin black mist started to appear. Without anyone’s knowledge, this thin black mist surrounded the whole world around them.
“Ah, lots of treasures, lots of Amethyst coins! Ah, I am rich, I am rich!” Lan Tian burst into an ecstatic roar, before kneeling down on the ground as he grabbed the grass all around him.
“Not good, this black mist is odd, everyone, don’t inhale it.” Long Yi shouted, and immediately stopped breathing in anymore black mist. His internal force ought to be able to support himself for a brief moment.
But only he had a skill to hold his breath, the others had no way to hold their breaths like him. So after Lan Tian lost himself in illusions, Barbarian Bull, and Ha Lei also began to talk nonsense one after another. For one moment they would laugh wildly, and in another moment, they would weep till their faces were filled with tears and nasal mucus. Lu Xiya released a thin layer of green light from all over her body, and had her eyes shut tightly. From this, anyone could see that it would be difficult for her to maintain this state for a long time. But out of all of them, Leng Youyou instead was completely fine. Her body was overflowing with a thin layer of dark qi, and her expression was rather happy.
Long Yi was dumbfounded. Seeing Leng Youyou, he wondered if everyone who cultivated dark magic would not be affected in this place. Seeing as Long Yi was looking at her questioningly, Leng Youyou brilliantly smiled and said, “This place is hell for other people, but for people cultivating dark magic, this place is heaven.”
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.
