The headless, single single armed statue had a very odd gesture.
“Hey, Uncle, do you recognize what this is?” Tang Tian and Bing communicated secretly.
“Nope.” Bing shook his head, but he was slightly surprised: “This stone statue does seem odd. It’s as if there are signs of a martial spirit inside of it.”
“Signs of a martial spirit?” Tang Tian did not notice. He touched the stone statue with his hand when Bing said it to him and closed his eyes to feel.
The martial spirit was very weak, but it was such a demonic martial spirit… Tang Tian’s heart turned cold. It was the first time he had felt such gloomy, eerie, demonic martial spirit. Then, he knew this headless, single armed stone statue was not an ordinary one.
Gu Xue opened her eyes big and looked curiously at Tang Tian who had his eyes closed. She could not tell what about this stone statue could attract Tang Tian so much.
When she saw Tang Tian opened his eyes, Gu Xue asked curiously: “Is there anything special about this stone statue?”
“Yes!” Tang Tian’s face was congealed: “It has a martial spirit.”
“There’s a martial spirit?” Gu Xue was stunned: “Why does a stone statue have a martial spirit?”
“Mmhmm, and it is a very gloomy, eerie and demonic martial spirit.” Tang Tian checked on the scars on this stone statue. The erosion was not too serious, it had not been too long since it was eroded. Thinking about what Gu Xue said earlier, that thirty years ago there were several people coming here, Tang Tian estimated that it was also during that time it was broken by those people.
With an idea, Tang Tian was suddenly energetic: “Let’s see if we can find its hands and head. This stone statue is not an ordinary statue.”
Gu Xue was instantly interested. Without hesitating: “Then let’s try to find them and piece it up. Look at its hands, the engravings are so pretty.”
Tang Tian glanced and nodded: “Yes, they are!”
The intact arm was indeed beautiful. Although Tang Tian did not know how to appreciate art, his eyes could not help but to get attracted to that hand, it was amusing.
And he kept having a feeling that this special hand gesture was not that simple…
He could not pinpoint an exact thing, but his instinct was super strong because his eyes were first caught by this hand gesture. If it was not for Bing’s reminder, he might not even sense that there was a weak, rippling wave of a martial spirit in this stone statue.
Tang Tian and Gu Xue started to look for the body parts in the ruins.
Not before long, Gu Xue suddenly shouted out cheerfully: “Here!”
Tang Tian looked up and ran over hurriedly. It was certainly an arm. From its style, it did look like it was from the stone statue. Tang Tian studied it, it was a different gesture.
The two ran over to the stone statue and tried to piece it back, only to realise that there was an extra piece.
“It’s not this.” Tang Tian was still energetic: “Seems like there’s more than one of these stone statues!”
“It’s an amazing discovery.” Gu Xue was overjoyed. It was as if she had found a big treasure chest. Her face was painted with joy and curiosity. On top of this, she discovered this with Tang Tian. There was nothing else that could make her more happy.
“Let’s look around quickly and see if there are other stone statues!” Tang Tian was looking forward. Suddenly, he felt this might really be an amazing discovery.
The two started to look around seriously.
“There’s one here!”
“I’ve found one here!”
The two buried their heads and looked for it. Past noon, the two had finally plowed around the ruins for a few rounds. Other than those buried deep which they could not reach, they had probably covered everything on ground level.
The ruined items they found piled up like a hill
Yet, the two did not feel tired. They looked at this hill as though they saw a pile of treasures. The two started to piece them up. Gu Xue was better than Tang Tian in this aspect. Very quickly, Tang Tian stood to one side to watch because he realised, even with his help, he was not as fast as Gu Xue.
The five broken stone statues were fixed.
But when these five stone statues were placed together, even Gu Xue could tell that something was wrong.
“Which era did this ruined site belong to?” Tang Tian asked Gu Xue.
“I don’t know.” Gu Xue shook her head: “There were many who came by here, but no one knew which era this ruined site belonged to.”
Although the five stone statues were broken and untidy, when placed together, the temperature of the surroundings dropped quite a lot. A gloomy, eerie qi surrounded the two of them.
Gu Xue was slightly pale. Subconsciously, she leaned towards Tang Tian.
Tang Tian’s face changed slightly. he pushed Gu Xue behind him. Obviously, the martial spirits in these stone statues were weak, but when these five stone statues were placed together, the martial spirit qi suddenly got strong.
Something was wrong!
The qi grew stronger. Tang Tian’s uneasiness soared. Without caring for other things, he grabbed hold of Gu Xue and threw her behind with his mighty force.
He roared: “Bing!”
Bing who was controlling Saber-toothed Tiger appeared at the side of Tang Tian. Gu Xue, being thrown by Tang Tian flew in mid air to pull their distance apart. She knew her powers were weak and would not be able to help out. The most important thing was not to distract Tang Tian.
She looked nervous.
The presence of the five broken statues rose continuously. The gloomy, eerie and demonic qi rippled out. Tang Tian had a feeling the five broken stone statues were coming to life.
Tang Tian felt as though something was emerging from the soil beneath his leg. Quickly, he pulled himself back, swoosh, a silhouette emerged from the soil and brushed against him. It was a broken stone.
The broken stones stuck onto one of the stone statues. Coincidentally, it fit well.
Tang Tian’s pupils constricted but he had no fear. On the contrary, he was burning with desire: “Looking now, it seems like something that is hard to deal with.”
Bing’s voice emerged from within the Saber-toothed Tiger: “Take it as battle practice. However, if there’s nothing, don’t call me out. As a military officer, it’s very expensive for me to appear. It’s only reasonable if you ask Ghost Claw to fight instead.
“I think saving and using fewer spirit nuclei is better.” Tang Tian said honestly: “We’re very poor!”
Bing fell silent.
Piece by piece, all the broken pieces were sucked up by a strong attraction force. As though they were shooting out from the soil like a raging storm, they all penetrated into the five stone statues.
All the cracks and erosion on the five stone statues were healing quickly. When the last piece of stone penetrated into the stone statue, Tang Tian and Bing saw five perfect stone statues without any flaws.
The five stone statues looked like they were smiling, bodies stood erect, their hands raised with palms stretched open, fingers pointed to the sky, their expressions and their hand movements, were all different.
But in the blink of an eye, the eerie, demonic qi from the five stone statues suddenly soared and burst into raging qi waves.
The qi brushed against his body. Tang Tian’s heart skipped a beat. This qi was extremely gloomy and eerie. It was like a live poisonous worm attempting to penetrate into Tang Tian’s body.
Using his True Power, slap, the eerie qi was dispersed. An empty qi circle was formed around Tang Tian.
The five exquisite demonic stone statues glowed with an eerie aura as though they were alive. Tang Tian could not help but keep his gaze on them.
Tang Tian glanced and felt dizzy. Immediately, he raised his guard up and remained clear headed.
The godlike young lad face sunk and roared: “You five rascals must be bad guys! How dare you try to hypnotise me. You’re all dead!”
Bing was not as optimistic as Tang Tian. It was as if he was confronting a huge enemy. One look and he knew these five stone statues came from an extraordinary place. Each of the martial spirits in this stone statues was different yet they had an amazing connection.
If his powers were at his peak, then he would not at all be worried. He could destroy them all with a finger.
But his powers were now…
He shook his head silently. That day, out of recklessness, he used Green Red Cross Scythe and he needed a few days before he regained his energy. It was best if he used such powerful techniques less.
His experience was far richer than Tang Tian’s. These five stone statues dated back a long way, yet they could still maintain such a perfect look. Now they were being called back, these things were definitely not simple.
It was just. Which constellation would produce such demonic qi?
Bing pondered in his heart. From the day the three great armies disappeared till today, his mind was blank. Whatever history, eras or constellations that had appeared between this time, he had no idea.
Suddenly, one of the stone statues opened its eyes and smiled. The face of the stone statue actually had a skin of a girl and was looking sassy.
At the same time, all four other stone statues opened their eyes, they were either smiling, crying, laughing or angry,
The stone statues had all turned into human beings. Their hair stood.
Tang Tian’s heart skipped a beat and shouted: “Come on!”
“Take care of yourself!” Bing shouted.
Tang Tian fended off a palm with precision whose fingers were like flower petals. A fragrant aroma entered his nose, Tang Tian only felt his blood boil and his legs went weak as though he were floating. Instantly, he retreated a few steps.
Then, another statue appeared behind him without any warning and pointed at Tang Tian’s back with her second finger as though it were a sword.
Tang Tian only felt a chill down his spine. The hair on his back stood still. Without thinking, he bent and a gloomy sword aura brushed against his back.
Tang Tian’s reaction was fast, immediately he hooked with his right leg.
A sharp Tan Tui Blade together with misty qi, pounced onto his opponent.
The Tan Tui Blade struck onto the statue, but unexpectedly, the statue only moved slightly and was not injured at all.
Tang Tian never expected his razor-sharp Tan Tui Blade would not be able to inflict any injuries on the statue.
Whooosh, five fingers flew towards Tang Tian’s head. It was such an eerie qi it was as though she wanted to pierce through his brains.
Tang Tian took a deep breath in and hid his palm in his abdomen and secretly instigated Shirotori Vortex!
Countless Shirotori Vortexes circled around Tang Tian before they dashed out in all directions suddenly.
Tang Tian made use of this opportunity and laid low to dodge the statue’s fingers. The moment he fell onto the ground, Tang Tian pounced back up and as though he was an arrow on a bow, he rushed out.
But, before he could stabilise himself, the statue was like a tumour, it was everywhere.
The glimmering snow light blade aura was released suddenly.
Seven blades, were slashed onto the statue. The once perfect snow person finally had scars on it.
Finally, Tang Tian used this chance to catch a breath and look clearly at this statue.
His eyes flattened!
