Tang Tian carefully walked through row after row of faceless figurines.
All the figurines looked really ancient, as if time had left unremovable marks. A countless number of the figurines already had cracks, while many had dust piled on them. They looked like they were from a far away era that came here mysteriously, and had lived through many things.
What is this place?
All these faceless figurine warriors, who created them?
Suddenly there was a crash sound, causing Tang Tian to jump in fright, and immediately looking over.
So it actually turned out to be a figurine that unexpectedly broke down, becoming a pile of rubble.
The crashing sounded like a signal. Crash, crash, one after another the other faceless figurines collapsed.
Ten thousand figurines were all collapsing in front of his eyes. Somehow, it was a spectacular sight, leaving Tang Tian shocked. He blankly stared at the outrageous scene before him, as he could not figure out what exactly was happening.
This, this, this….
Exactly… exactly what kind of ghost place is this…
All the dust flew and covered the sky. Tang Tian covered his nose and mouth, feeling panicky. The entire place was strange to him, and even godlike young men were unable to tolerate some stuff.
Could there be dangers lurking within this dust…? Would someone ambush him…?
As if Tang Tian had met strong enemy, he looked around.
The dust faded away. Tang Tian’s face was covered with dust. When he looked around, he saw that the floor was piled with the broken figurines. The army that stood solemnly earlier on actually… actually turned to dust in a split second!
Unknowingly, Tang Tian felt despair.
Time would eventually destroy everything…
He looked over in a daze and suddenly, his pupils constricted.
Wait a minute!
There was… still one figurine left…unbroken!
A faceless figurine stood tall amongst the rubble in solitude.
Without saying a word, Tang Tian stepped on the rubble and ran towards the figurine.
Huhu, Tang Tian was there within a breath.
This figurine was no different from the other figurines he saw earlier. It had a white face, grey body, and engraved on its body was an exquisite armour. Its hands were long and straight.
Tang Tian’s face was crooked, as he carefully looked at this special figurine. He had a strong gut feeling that this figurine, compared to the rest, was very different. But where it was different, Tang Tian could not tell.
Just at this moment, ‘break’, a crack appeared on the figurines’ blank face.
Tang Tian stared for awhile. No way…don’t tell me even this last one could not be spared…
Break break break!
The crack became more obvious, and in a blink of an eye, it formed spider web like cracks on the figurines’ whole body.
In front of Tang Tian, a piece fell off.
Piece by piece the fragments started to break and fall off the figurine.
Suddenly Tang Tian noticed a dull light emerging amongst the place where the rubble fell on.
There was something inside!
Tang Tian was shocked.
The rubble fell like rain, and the insides were exposed. The dull light shone right into Tang Tian’s eye. Indeed, there was something in there!
When the last piece of rubble fell to the ground, Tang Tian looked at the figurine in front of him in a daze.
A grey shadow with a glassy reflection appeared in front of him. This reflection was actually the same as the figurine, it had a white face and even the armour was exactly the same, but it was slightly more exquisite, and in its hands, it held a pike.
“You, you… who are you?” Tang Tian asked blankly.
“Bing.” Brimming with clumsiness, a voice suddenly came out of the grey ceramic figurine.
Tang Tian stared at the big guy, and stuttered: “You, you, you… you can speak?”
“Yes.” The ceramic figurine effortfully said.
Stunned, Tang Tian’s expression froze on his face.
I have met a strange creature…
This strange creature… is really weird….
Tang Tian swallowed his saliva with difficulty. Everything that had happened was completely beyond his imagination. He rubbed his head, and carefully asked: “Are you human?”
“No, I’m not.” The ceramic figurine started to speak more fluently.
“Then what are you?” Tang Tian was curious.
“Spirit General.” it coughed out two words.
“Spirit general?” Tang Tian looked distracted, as he circled around the figurine twice, rubbing his head and muttering to himself: “So this is what a Spirit General is…”
The other party was speechless.
“Ah, ah, ah, so you’re called Bing!” Tang Tian reacted, and immediately patted him and laughed.
“Yes.” Bing quietly hovered in the sky.
“Eh, can I ask, why…erm, don’t you have a face?” Tang Tian could not help but ask.
“A faceless person is a sinner.” Bing’s voice was flat and straight, with no undulations, but once he said those few words, a strange feeling was birthed.
“Sinner…” Tang Tian was stunned for a while, seemed like the question actually made Bing sad. “Oh, then I should change the question.” Tang Tian immediately changed and asked: “Bing, what place is this?”
“The Board for Banished Sins.” Bing’s voice was flat.
“How come the stone board can float on the sea?” Tang Tian had a weird look on his face.
“It is the Exiled Sea.” Bing continued to explain in which Tang Tian was unable to comprehend anything.
Tang Tian was more at a loss: “I was clearly in the Labyrinth of Spirits, how did I get here?”
Bing was silent.
“Eh, Bing, do you know where the Spirit Key is?” Tang Tian asked.
“Okay.” Tang Tian asked a more realistic question: “Then, how do I leave this place?”
“Turn yourself into a spirit as a form of repaying debt, and the rubble will vanish.” Bing said with no intonation, it sounded weird.
“The rubble will vanish…” Tang Tian muttered.
A frightening cracking sounds emerged from his foot. Tang Tian’s face congealed and looked down to see a big crack spreading across in all four directions at an astonishing speed. The number of cracks increased and in the blink of an eye, the ground below Tang Tian’s foot was covered with spider web-like cracks.
Tang Tian’s facial expression took a great change.
Right at this moment, the sea level started to descend uncontrollably.
All of a sudden, someone grabbed him from behind. It was Bing. Tang Tian hung in mid air.
The rocks below his feet were like an avalanche, crashing down!
The sea immediately dried up and disappeared.
Tang Tian, who was completely stunned, did not notice that the Southern Cross Constellation mark on his hand was emitting a vague light.
His perspective seemed to be spinning round and round. There were several lines forming a bizarre whirlpool.
When Tang Tian opened his eyes again, he realised he was alone in the cave. Not far from him, a glimmering silver key floated.
Was that the Spirit Key?
Subconsciously, Tang Tian sighed a breath of relief.
That weird situation was actually just a dream!
“Is that the Spirit Key?” a cold flat voice suddenly came through Tang Tian’s back.
Tang Tian’s body froze.
After a moment, he turned his stiff neck and looked over to see Bing floating behind him.
Tang Tian’s mouth quivered, his throat dry: “You… how did you follow me?”
It was not a dream…
“There’s something odd here.” Bing looked up into the cave, raised his pike and poked it through the walls of the cave.
The entire mountain shook as if it could collapse anytime.
Tang Tian stared in bewilderment.
The lights on the walls were like bubbles, one by one, they would all pop.
Mr. Wu looked in daze. In the blink of an eye, there was nothing on the walls. After a while, he reacted and screamed: “Impossible! What is this person! How could he break the facade I set with the three bronze manuals? Impossible! How can there be such an expert?”
Di Han’s face was pale. He was very clear on how much Mr. Wu had paid for this setup.
With the Labyrinth of Spirits as the core, he spent three bronze manuals and layered defenses all around, in all sorts of hallucinations and traps.
What person was actually so strong to be able to break such an exquisite trap?
A chill went from Di Han’s feet all the way up his spine. Without hesitation, he turned to escape with his life.
“No! My silver blood meridians…” Mr. Wu screamed crazily. Di Han did not hesitate as he ran away. He could feel a strong qi coming right at him.
Tang Tian pupils contracted as he stared at Bing.
“I want to sleep.” When he said that, his body transformed into a ray of light, and entered Tang Tian’s palm.
Tang Tian jumped in fright, and as he opened his palm, he saw the print of the Southern Cross shining.
Southern Cross Constellation….
Rumble rumble, big chunks of rock continuously flew down from the cave, Tang Tian quickly recovered from his shock and regained his senses as his face changed. The colors on the cave walls changed, and exposing a passageway for a person to go through.
At this time, Tang Tian suddenly heard a cold voice.
“Ah Mo Li, are you only able to run? Didn’t you perform very well? I will let you die a horrible death today!”
Tang TIan’s face changed, Housefly Cow! He quickly heard and realised that the one speaking was Zhou Peng!
Without saying a word, Tang Tian rushed towards the cave.
Flickers of raging anger could be seen in Tang Tian’s eyes!
He did not realise that the second Crane Body’s circulation speed had quietly grown faster.
In the lounge area of the cave, there were a countless number of entrances, and at this time many people emerged from the different entrances. on everyone’s face was alarm. Was the Labyrinth of Spirits collapsing? In the blink of an eye, many people were gathered in the lounge.
Suddenly, a very huge shadow, battered and exhausted, made his way out.
“Ah Mo Li, today is the day you die!” A bitter and gloomy resentful voice sounded out.
A grey shadow suddenly appeared beside Ah Mo Li, the spear, like a poisonous dragon, pointing straight at Ah Mo Li.
Ah Mo Li blocked horizontally with difficulty. Crash, as if he was struck heavily, Ah Mo Li’s entire being flew backwards!
Isolated Spirit Spear!
Sure enough, Zhou Peng’s figure appeared in front of everybody.
The Isolated Spirit Spear’s power was extremely powerful, with strength equal to a fourth rank martial art, a grand master grade spear skill, while Ah Mo Li could barely resist with his strength, he was covered all over with cuts and bruises.
“Zhou Peng, don’t go overboard!” Someone stood up, and it was actually Liang Qiu, and he had the gaze to kill.
“Keke, Ferocious Beast Big Boss?” Zhou Peng laughed: “So what? Go, kill him!”
The Spirit General disappeared, suddenly appearing in front of Liang Qiu, and his spear tip disappeared from Liang Qiu’s eyes, so fast! Liang Qiu pupils contracted, and he was not able to react in time, his shoulder felt pain, and a blood whirl formed!
Everyone stared in shock when everything happened, how was that possible… how was that possible…
Liang Qiu was injured in one strike….
“Hahahaha! Big Boss Liang is actually only so so!” Zhou Peng looked upwards and laughed like a maniac, ruthlessness in his eyes.
“As expected of the great master’s own constructed Spirit Card, Even Liang Big Boss cannot take one hit of his. Sadly, this is not a Gold Grade Spirit Card. But still, compared to you guys, a Silver Grade Spirit Card, is definitely enough! Hahaha!” Zhou Peng wildly shouted: “Go and die!”
The isolated Spirit Spear tip momentarily disappeared again.
Liang Qiu’s face abruptly changed.
A silver lightning struck down, exploding right in front of Liang Qiu!
