Zhanxian - Chapter 299
Water pool? No aura? Yang Chen currently was also a bit confused. But immediately waved, “let’s have a look!”
The bear and the wolf were shocked when they heard this. The wolf immediately responded. Yang Chen was a foreigner. He didn’t know the power there, and he may not survive.
“No! It’s too dangerous!”
The wolf seemed to have changed some thoughts because of the foundation he cultivated this year. He immediately shook his head and stopped him; “you haven’t seen it, you don’t know how dangerous it is. It used to have swallowed three Yuanying realm ancestors, no one dares to be close to a hundred steps of it.”
“I don’t want to go in, just take a look around.”
Yang Chen smiled and said, “even if you look at it from a hundred steps, it could serve as good experience.”
When they heard that Yang Chen wouldn’t go into it but look around. The two guys had a little peace of mind. They took Yang Chen all the way around several big circles before rushing over.
Without any aura, but swallowed three Yuanying realm ancestors? Yang Chen was more curious about this pool. Until the moment he saw the pool, Yang Chen still guessed what it was, which could lead to such a powerful thing.
The wolf and the bear took Yang Chen and boarded a room in a high place. There was no one living there and there was no spiritual power, but from here one could see the scene far below.
The pool was in their field of vision and could be seen from the window of the room. The wolf was walking in front of the window with the dog’s legs. In particular, he stretched out his sleeves and rubbed the dust. Then he invited Yang Chen and pointed to the pool. “It is there.”
The water pool was not big, only a hundred square feet, the water colour showed a dark green colour. They didn’t know how many years that had not changed. At least three hundred steps away from here, Yang Chen also could not detect a smell.
In other places, there were trees everywhere, but around the pool, there was no tree, it was bare, and very awkward. Not just trees, but no roots as well. It could be considered that it was not a fertile place.
“Don’t use spiritual awareness to explore!”
When Yang Chen’s heart moved, he was about to use his spiritual awareness to explore it. The wolf suddenly said, “two Yuanying realm ancestors, hundreds of Jiedan realm masters, have curiously explored it with their spiritual awareness. The result was that they were pulled into the pool by something, and never got out again.”
Standing at this distance, Yang Chen did not feel any strange aura, it seemed that the two were also telling the truth. However, Yang Chen was still curious, how could it become a slaughter house here?
“Is there anything in the pool?”
Yang Chen turned his face and asked, “is it a sinister beast?”
It seemed that this was the first reaction that anyone perceived of this situation. If there was no beast, how could it be possible?
“I don’t know!”
This time, the bear responded. The continued immediately after, “nobody knows, no one has seen it. When anyone knows about it, they warn that you must not be close, otherwise the consequences will be dire. Many experts have thus, disappeared. No one dares to take this risk.”
“Has anyone seen someone who had not come out?”
Yang Chen asked again. If no one had ever seen it, it was just a legend, and there must be some hidden things.
“Almost every few years. There are guys who don’t believe in this story.”
The wolf stared at the other side and said, “you also know that there are always fellow Daoists who believe that they are the sons of heavens or heaven’s chosen with great fortune. There must be some good things left by a certain predecessor, and they will definitely get it. But they also never come out.”
“How did they get in?” Yang Chen asked again.
“It is so unfathomable to go in. One will disappear while in the water after a while.”
Then the bear interjected, “this pool is very strange. If you walk into the two water lines, you will disappear. It is very calm. No one dares to fish, everyone just looks at it. Anyway, I have seen at least ten little guys go in. They have never come out.”
Even the bear said this, it seemed that this situation was not uncommon. Yang Chen didn’t want to be so shocked, of course, he wouldn’t rush in like others have. He kept on watching it from afar, not talking for a long time.
Yang Chen did not move, the bear and the wolf did not dare to move either and looked at the other side, they did not know what Yang Chen was thinking. But no one dared to disturb him.
“Well, it’s a strange place.”
After a long time, Yang Chen was shocked, he then turned and left. Both the bear and the wolf finally breathed a sigh of relief in their hearts. If they didn’t go in, there was nothing to worry about. It wasn’t easy to come across a guy who was willing to invest in them.
“There are no more places with strange auras.”
After returning to Yang Chen’s rented room, the two men thought about it and decided there was no other place to meet Yang Chen’s request.
“Well, it’s okay, if I can’t find it.”
Yang Chen seemed to have let go of this matter, and then began to tell the two people something else, “you have given a look in the market recently, what good materials are there? Tell me more about them?”
This was the best for the two guys. They were more familiar with the market, especially the stall area. Both guys then complied.
“I want to go to a more advanced place to retreat for a while. Here you live first, I have already paid ten years of rent.”
Yang Chen pointed to the room where he was now, leaving the room to the two.
Just like that a treasure just fell from the sky for the two, this room was equivalent to a reward of many spirit stones. The two guys’ happy mouths couldn’t be closed together. Just taking Yang Chen in the city for a few days, there was such a benefit. What if they took him to buy a batch of advanced materials? They felt excited when they thought about it.
For the higher-spirited room, the two had no hope. While building their foundation again, foundation-based cultivation methods now did not require much spiritual power. Instead, the building of foundation was very slow.
As for Yang Chen, this situation was very normal. What was a foreigner coming here for? Wasn’t it for better cultivation, materials and more spiritual power? Yang Chen had already taken perspective of all these aspects. No one would think that Yang Chen’s performance was suspicious.
After renting a higher-level room with Yang Chen, the two personally sent him to the room on the second floor of the city, and respectfully bowed. The appearance of Yang Chen, although had given them most profound shock, but also hope. The first thing they did thereafter was to quickly go to the market and let the sellers set up the stalls with good things.
No one knew that Yang Chen was playing with the idea of going to the water pool.
The strange waterhole was absolutely weird. There was no aura from it, but it also illustrated another problem; there must be something that could isolate the aura below the pool.
Unfortunately, the people who went on did not have any results, no one knew what was going on below. It may already be known, but it was controlled by the city’s managers and thus, was censored for the general public.
But in Yang Chen’s guess, the aquatic pool had no water attribute aura; maybe it had been absorbed by some other. First Wood True Essence was really the most likely.
However, if he wanted to know if there was a First Wood True Essence in the pool, Yang Chen had only one way, and that was to go in and check by himself. However, this required dealing with a lot of risk. The bear and the wolf could not become a part of this. The pool of water that had swallowed a few Yuanying realm ancestors, would pose mortal danger for them.
The First Wood True Essence was very important for Yang Chen. Only this area had been left in the city that could have it. No matter how he must go in and check.
There was such a strange waterhole in the city. If no one paid attention to it, then it was even more suspicious. It was almost impossible to want to explore it with spiritual awareness without others knowing it.
If Yang Chen inverted the sea jasper, he could isolate his spiritual awareness and explore it, but he could not stop the visual observation of others. And around that pool, there were definitely some people keeping watch day and night.
In this way, entering the water pool had become a conundrum. Yang Chen was sitting in the room, but he was thinking about how to find an excuse that would not be suspected.
Amid these difficulties, Yang Chen’s heart suddenly moved. He placed his spiritual awareness threads around the room, and suddenly noticed a few unusual movements, it seemed that someone was close.
After a while, the people came closer, Yang Chen was completely certain that someone had secretly traced him. It was not one person either, but four, and these four people were all Yuanying realm masters.
The four-monster race Yuanying realm masters, had secretly traced him and encircled his room, Yang Chen could not think of the reason. However, since the other side visited his home, he suddenly thought of an excuse to enter the water pool.
There was a strange noise coming from the door. Getting up, he opened the door and strode outside. Looking at the empty surroundings, his face exposed a suspicious and confusing expression.
In the air, he sniffed a few times, as if to smell something. He finally frowned and said nothing. He was about to turn back to the room, but the door behind, suddenly shut by itself.
Yang Chen shouted, the door of the room would not shut itself down, there must be someone who had played a trick.
“This kid is still very alert.”
A voice rang from Yang Chen’s head. He seemed to be suddenly scared, he turned back to look at the empty surroundings around.
“Predecessor has come to this younger generation’s dwelling, what does the predecessor want?”
Although Yang Chen seemed to be shocked, but he did not panic, remaining very calm.
“You dare to abolish the cultivation base of our brother and dare to saunter in the city! You really are too carefree!”
Another voice shouted from the left side of Yang Chen, to which he suddenly turned. He could see at the same time in two directions.
“If you had been in the room for a long time, we really can’t do anything.”
There was a strange voice suddenly sounding behind him, “however, you have been sauntering in the city these days, is it because you think we are all furnishings?”
Yang Chen’s body had begun to turn around, the three guys seemed to have surrounded him, but his gaze was scanning another direction.
“The leopard got abolished that time; how do you want to be scrapped today?”
In another direction, another strange voice was heard.
“A leopard? Are you the brother of the waste in the city?”
Rotating, Yang Chen put on a posture of alert, but his mouth continued, “why didn’t the two tell me?”
The guy in front of him sneered a little, “those two wastes don’t even know that we are also a group. A square market is not worthy for five Yuanying realm masters to come out together”
That was quite reasonable. The district had set up a stall area. In fact, if the chief of the wolf and the bear didn’t always appear, they had been able to keep the upper hand. Most of them were the monster cultivators in the foundation realm, and the two Jiedan realm masters were enough to manage the scene. In addition, making the leopard in the Yuanying realm angry could almost be said to be very unprofitable.
Abolishing the cultivation base of a Yuanying realm ancestor, although it was for his prestige, but it also offended these few Yuanying realm masters. Switching to the general Jiedan realm monster cultivators, this was already a terrifying trouble.
Once the leopard leader was abolished, Yang Chen immediately bought something in the market and went to the bookstore, he then closed to practice in his own room and never came out. These masters had received news that they had missed the opportunity to block Yang Chen outside. The rules in the city stated that no one must hurt the people in their cultivation room. These masters thus, had to wait.
Not to mention the four Yuanying realm ancestors, even if forty Yuanying realm masters were add up, they did not dare to easily challenge the rules of the city. The master of the Dacheng realm sitting in the town and the restrictions of the city itself, could not be broken so easily, even if it was a master of the Dacheng realm.
Yang Chen did not come out after a few days but undertook several retreats for a while. Someone told them the news. Unfortunately, when they arrived, he had already bought and entered room again. They could only provoke him out.
If Yang Chen was not allowed to return to the room, then everything was fine. Except for not killing Yang Chen, they could do whatever they wanted. Now that this plan had been successfully realized, a Yuanying realm ancestor had blocked the door of Yang Chen’s room. In their eyes, he could never return, and was destined to be a waste.
“I heard that you were very wealthy, it seemed that we have to thank you in advance.”
The master who spoke last, slowly walked forward. Every step further seemed to bring a heavy pressure on Yang Chen. The master in front of him and the other also began to slowly come closer. Four people, from four directions, surrounded Yang Chen in a vague way.
“You want my wealth? How about exchange my life for it?”
Yang Chen to have been forced to the death’s door. He suddenly began to burst out with laughter and screamed! It was like a thunderclap in the surroundings, not knowing how many people who were closed around woke up.
Countless spiritual awareness swept over. It seemed that they have not expected Yang Chen to make such a big movement. It startled the four. In the meanwhile, Yang Chen’s body suddenly turned into a great crane, rushing toward a gap that the four people inadvertently made due to the shock.
