Zhanxian - Chapter 236
Just after coming in contact for a while, Yang Chen discovered that the barrier closest to the mouth of Xiao Tian on his hand had become softer.
This was simply an unexpected surprise. If Xiao Tian could absorb all these things, it meant that Yang Chen could easily get the things in the jade case.
Thinking of this, Yang Chen had been unable to hold back his excitement and began to use the Beast Controlling Secret Art to communicate with Xiao Tian, to let it absorb the light as quickly as possible. In that case, he could quickly make a hole in the thickness of his arm, so that Yang Chen could reach and take out the golden bell.
Xiao Tian also understood the meaning of Yang Chen, but the actual implementation was the problem. Of course, this couldn’t be blamed on him. It was really that the light that shined seemed to be in a general flow. After only a moment of loss, the light around it began to supplement the loss, and the barrier began to slowly harden.
It seemed that this was a gradual process, Yang Chen could only wait while guessing what the golden bell on the jade case was.
This process took a whole month and the Xiao Tian seemed to be very fond of this kind of light, which it constantly absorbed. Yang Chen knew that there must be a lot of dragon qi in it, otherwise it will not be like this.
Almost occasionally, Yang Chen would try to touch the restriction on the jade case. The invisible barrier was getting softer and softer, the surrounding light was also getting shallower.
When the light finally disappeared, Yang Chen’s hand had been put into the barrier impatiently. The originally sturdy barrier, was like a soft film at this moment, was broken quickly.
Yang Chen’s hand grabbed the golden bell and then quickly retreated. Who knew if there would be any change in the restriction, turning matters to take a turn for the worse.
The small golden bell looked like it had been battered by time. It was an unusually beautiful bell that was full of delicate dragon marks. If you looked at it carefully, there were nine golden dragons hovering on the outer bell. Each one had a different shape, with their claws dancing, but each one was so beautiful and lifelike.
Inside the golden bell was a hanging metal ball that he didn’t know what material it was made of. The ball also had a delicate pattern, but it was not in a dragon shape, but a regular pattern.
In his hands, the golden bell was very light, as if it had no weight. Yang Chen tried to shake it. Unexpectedly, the ball inside the golden bell did not move, nor did it make any sound.
This was not surprising. It could make the old dragon king serious enough to put it in his Hidden treasure house, and use the restricted barrier to seal it. If it could be easily swayed, it would not be worth the lengths the old dragon king went to protect it.
Filled with curiosity, Yang Chen began to try to input spiritual power into the golden bell. However, when Yang Chen’s spiritual power entered the golden bell, it was like a needle entering a sea, it disappeared without a trace.
There was usually only one reason for this to happen; the spiritual power required and the input had a very large disparity, which, thus, caused such a situation.
After he estimated the amount of his spiritual power, Yang Chen had to be frustrated to admit that even if he put all his spiritual power into the golden bell, it was estimated that he could not meet the needs of the golden bell.
However, there was a huge East China Sea chart outside and there were countless Spiritual veins on it, which could provide Yang Chen with a steady stream of spiritual support. Yang Chen didn’t want to go straight outside, so he found a submarine Spiritual vein that was not used by the sects. He put down the obsidian jade rush cushion.
Sitting on the obsidian jade rush cushion, Yang Chen held the golden bell in both hands and then began to input his spiritual power into the golden bell. With the input of Yang Chen Spiritual power, the size of the golden bell began to grow bigger and bigger. Slowly, Yang Chen’s hands could not easily contain it. He had to put the already grown golden bell in front of him and touch its top with his hands.
The spiritual power madly poured into the golden bell while it got bigger and bigger. When the golden bell changed to a higher level than Yang Chen’s body, he discovered that he couldn’t continue as is.
He had been unable to control the output speed of the spiritual power. The spiritual power input from his body seemed as if being swallowed up by a black hole, it crazily flowed from his hands to the golden bell. The spiritual power in his whole body was absorbed in less than a hundred breaths.
Fortunately, Yang Chen was now able to control the absorption of the spiritual power with his formidable Spiritual Awareness. The huge spiritual veins and the obsidian jade rush cushion came together to provide this possibility of controlling this crazy absorption. In addition to being able to maintain his self-imposed absorption of Spiritual power from the obsidian jade rush cushion, Yang Chen could no longer do other things.
As soon as the Spiritual power entered his body, it was directly swallowed up by the golden bell and none remained. Fortunately, Yang Chen’s Yang Five Phases Secret Art provided 10 times more spiritual power and 10 times more absorption speed than the ordinary Foundation stage. Which let the supply of spiritual power to the golden bell become possible.
Yang Chen had now begun to regret it. This level of magic weapon was not something that he could use, but curiosity had caused Yang Chen to fall into this state which he was not able to get rid of. There was no other choice than to allow the crazy absorption of spiritual power by the Golden Bell.
What made Yang Chen increasingly fearful was that as the Golden Bell absorbed increasingly more spiritual power, the speed of the absorption got faster and faster. There were also signs that he eventually would be unable to keep up with the supply. If he couldn’t keep up with the speed of the golden bell’s absorption of Spiritual power, will he not be sucked dry by the Golden Bell soon?
The surface of the golden bell began to brighten slowly, and the dragons became clearer and brighter. The dragon pattern above seemed to have begun to bulge slowly, becoming like a relief, just like the nine gold dragons that were slowly inflating
Yang Chen’s spiritual power absorption finally reached the limit and could no longer provide faster spiritual power absorption. The golden bell seemed to be able to feel the state of Yang Chen, thus, it maintained the speed of spiritual power absorption at that level.
Quickly a light flashed, Yang Chen seemed to see the dragon’s eye that was facing him. The dragon’s eye flashed slightly. When he was doubting whether it was an illusion, the golden bell suddenly stopped absorbing spiritual power.
Just when Yang Chen was surprised, he felt a slight tremor of the golden bell, a low and heavy bell sound rang from the golden bell.
The heavy sound was mixed with a terrible impact. Being so close, Yang Chen almost instantly fainted.
In the sea where the treasure house was located, a huge ripple suddenly appeared, followed by a bang, causing countless splashes. Within a hundred miles, all the creatures lost consciousness in an instant, and even the seabirds flying through the sky fell sharply.
The huge ripple formed a wave several feet high and began to spread towards the surroundings. After a long time, the sea area slowly calmed down, but there were countless kinds of fish and shrimp with white bellies floating above the sea.
When Yang Chen woke up, he didn’t even know how long he had been fainted. He only knew that there was no pain in his whole body. The spiritual power in his body was completed depleted and there was no trace of it left. In his Sea of Consciousness, it seemed that there was still a heavy and clear bell sound, it was seemingly endless.
Although it was said that he woke up, but only his awareness was alert in his mind. But his mind was still like a river and unfocused. Even if he wanted to concentrate, it was impossible.
Yang Chen could only lie on the ground like this and slowly wait for a natural recovery. At this time, Yang Chen, didn’t think about taking a medicine as even controlling his spiritual power was impossible. The imperial power of the golden bell was evident.
Maintaining such an awkward state, for at least three days, the shock in Yang Chen’s Sea of Consciousness finally and slowly slowed down to a point that Yang Chen could accept.
Enduring the mad tremor, Yang Chen began to control his spiritual power and healed his injuries. In these few days, the water did not approach him, he was lying on the spiritual vein, but he did not get even a little spiritual supplement. If it wasn’t for Yang Chen’s physical strength, he would have passed away.
Spiritual power slowly entered the dry meridian of Yang Chen and began to slowly moisturize his body.
After a while, Yang Chen finally got some strength and sat up with his arms. The first thing he did after sitting up, was to eat two Profound Yang Fruit from the medicine garden. The huge spiritual supply, coupled with the fullness of the food in his belly, made Yang Chen a little better.
After the spiritual power of the Profound Yang Fruit was completely absorbed by Yang Chen, he began to cultivate the Three Purities Secret Art…
In Yang Chen’s Sea of Consciousness, there was still the bell sound and he still felt dizzy, but he couldn’t eliminate this influence.
The Three Purities Secret Art was worthy to be a Grand Supreme Elderly Lord cultivation method, only after cultivating One Heavenly Circulation, the feeling of shock had been greatly reduced. He did not say anything and continued to practice.
With eight One Heavenly Circulation of the Three Purities Secret Art, for two days and two nights, no such tremor remained in his Sea of Consciousness, and his mind returned to full awareness. At this time, Yang Chen had practiced the Yin and Yang Five Phases Secret Art cultivation for several Heavenly Circulations, and frantically replenished his lost spiritual power.
The golden bell still had its huge appearance and it was placed not far in front of Yang Chen, but he did not dare to move closer to it easily. Just a while ago, he almost disappeared and he could be sure that it was not the full power of the golden bell. In this case, if he disturbs it again, was it not like courting his own death.
Yang Chen still did not know the situation outside the Hidden treasure house of the Dragon Palace. All the ordinary creatures within a hundred miles had died and even the monsters below the Foundation stage have all died.
Those who were above the Foundation stage were all in a coma. Until now, after waking up, they were still unable to distinguish between the southeast and the northwest, all the monsters were stumbling around in a mess.
Sure enough, when Yang Chen looked at this golden bell higher than himself, he could only sigh. No wonder the old dragon king kept it in the treasure house. It had not even reached full power yet. After it reached full power, what would it become?
Speaking of it, Yang Chen was slightly affected. After all, the bell was initiated by his spiritual power. He was the initiator of the attack. The attack of the magic weapon would not hurt the owner. This was common sense. But just the impact had already caused Yang Chen to be so injured. Facing its full attack, he did not know what the situation would be like.
Such a good thing, Yang Chen’s heart almost bust with joy, he couldn’t wait to get his hands on it.
In any case, Yang Chen did not dare to even input a little bit of spiritual power into the golden bell. Fortunately, laying down a Spiritual Awareness Imprint did not require spiritual power as a support, if his Spiritual Awareness was strong enough, he still had an advantage.
Sacrificial refining? Yang Chen didn’t think about it. He sat directly on the obsidian jade rush cushion and began to collect the golden bell. At this time, his formidable Sea of Consciousness and huge Spiritual Awareness played a huge role and began to penetrate the entire golden bell little by little.
Even with the Three Purities Secret Art as the source of his Spiritual Awareness, Yang Chen still spent half a month to complete the initial steps.
When Yang Chen’s Spiritual Awareness Imprint was successfully engraved in the golden bell, the golden bell violently turned into a golden shadow which was then hidden in his body.
Boom, countless memories breached and poured into Yang Chen’s mind. After a while, Yang Chen was sure that these were the instructions of the golden bell. If he followed these instructions, he would be able to impel the golden bell without the slightest injury.
However, the spiritual power required to utilise the golden bell was no longer imaginable by Yang Chen. At least until Yang Chen reached the peak Yuanying realm, he would not have to consider this issue.
Even if it was the peak of Yuanying realm, it would not be so easy, if he wanted to understand the golden bell completely.
At most, it would be like this time, a resounding sound. If he wanted to fly in Kowloon, the Golden Bell was ringing, and he would have to consider it again!
However, before this, the golden bell did not have any use. When the golden bell fitted into the body of Yang Chen, it created a natural protective barrier for him. It was equivalent to his body having a powerful protective magic weapon to protect it at any time.
After discovering this, Yang Chen’s mind naturally came up with a vocabulary: the golden bell cover. This was simply a true golden bell cover.
With the cover of the golden bell, even if Yang Chen stood in the dome hall, and he let the seven-seven flying swords slash at him, Yang Chen would not feel anything.
This was just the power of the golden bell after Yang Chen had just collected it. After he does the sacrificial refining, it would be more powerful and the protection would double.
After getting thoroughly refined by Yang Chen, the bell will also have its most powerful attribute unlocked; the golden bell will even get triggered by an enemy’s attack, directly countering it.
This kind of magic weapon with both offensive and defensive features, even if it was in the Immortal world, would be a rare treasure.
Bringing Xiao Tian to the Dragon Palace, did not let Yang Chen be disappointed. Just this golden bell was enough to make Yang Chen stunned. Not to mention that there were six jade cases in the hall, waiting for Yang Chen to open the barriers one by one and collect the magic weapons inside.
Now, Yang Chen was looking forward to it, were the rest as good as this golden bell?
