Chapter 453: Acquiring What Should Be Acquired (1)
“Tsk, tsk. I didn’t know that you’re so stubborn.” The old man’s voice came from the darkness, and he further increased the pressure. Yun Feng smiled palely. “Senior, why are you so obsessed with something that doesn’t belong to you?”
The voice came to an abrupt halt. Then, the old man laughed. “Everybody is curious about the summoner’s Ring of Contract, which contains all the secrets about the contract, right? You’re not wearing the Ring of Contract on your hand. That’s unusual. Are you giving it to me or not?” The old man seemed to have just slid past Yun Feng, but Yun Feng could see nothing but the darkness. As time went by, the pressure was even greater than before!
“No!” Yun Feng gnashed her teeth. She clenched her fists and stood stubbornly without giving in. The old man sounded quite infuriated. “What a stubborn girl. Let’s see how much longer you can remain stubborn!”
“Ugh!” A destructive pressure was imposed on Yun Feng, who could even hear the sound of her bones being squeezed. At this moment, her ancestor who resided in the spiritual space raised his head worriedly. “Kid, don’t be too stubborn!” He hadn’t known Yun Feng for long, but he knew that Yun Feng was as determined as everybody else in the Yun family! She would never change or waver easily! The ancestor feared that she would be hurt because of her personality in this place. This mysterious old man seemed truly aggressive!
“I’m fine.” Yun Feng smiled, with sweat on her forehead. Her back was gradually bent, but Yun Feng gritted her teeth and carried on. There was no way that she would give away her Ring of Contract!
Yun Sheng and Mu Xiaojin, who had been cultivating on the tenth floor of the Dragon Palace, suddenly opened their eyes. They didn’t know what was going on outside, but they were somehow panicked. “Brother Yun Sheng, did something happen to Xiao Feng?” asked Mu Xiaojin worriedly. Yun Sheng frowned too. As a brother who was connected to Yun Feng by blood, he was too anxious to cultivate at this moment. He stood up and wanted to leave.
Then, it occurred to him that he couldn’t leave even if he wanted to. They came in via the dragon-shaped jade pendant, so they had to leave with Yun Feng’s help too. Yun Sheng frowned and shouted loudly, “Feng! Feng!” His voice echoed on the tenth floor of the Dragon Palace countless times, but Yun Feng didn’t reply.
“Feng!” Unwilling to give in, Yun Sheng shouted again. Yun Feng would’ve heard him and replied if it were before, but she was silent this time. Something must’ve happened to her! Mu Xiaojin shouted too. For a moment, this floor was filled with their voices. Then, a certain someone who was sound asleep in a corner of the Dragon Palace opened his eyes with fury and agitation in his gray eyes. He rose midair with gloom all over his face.
“Stop shouting, or I will kill you both!” His hoarse voice came to the tenth floor of the Dragon Palace. Both Yun Sheng and Mu Xiaojin were dazed, and unconsciously looked around. They didn’t know they were in the Dragon Palace, and thought that there was only this floor. They didn’t know the other floors that were hidden.
“Sorry to wake you up, senior, but please forgive me. I fear that something might have happened to my sister,” said Yun Sheng tentatively. A moment later, the hoarse voice came again. “What are you worried about? Nothing can possibly happen to her!”
Yun Sheng was thrilled to hear that. “Do you know Feng, senior?”
“How can I not know her?” the voice came lazily and drowsily. “Just calm down, or I will throw both of you out!”
“Senior! Senior!” Yun Sheng cried anxiously. The guy who was going to resume his sleep was completely infuriated. “Human! I only allowed you to come here because of that girl’s relatives! Don’t press too far!”
“Yao Guang, why are you so angry?” another old man’s voice spread out. Yun Sheng and Mu Xiaojin were surprised. Another person? What was this place? Was there more space here?
“Old man, leave me alone!” Yao Guang, who had been woken up by the noises, was very angry, and fury could be seen on his face. He could do nothing about Yun Sheng or Mu Xiaojin who were on the tenth floor. He was only trying to scare them into silence. After all, he needed far more sleep.
“Senior…” Yun Sheng opened his mouth again, and the old man replied. “What happened to Yun Feng?”
“Old man, what can possibly happen to her?” Yao Guang, who had a baby’s face, had nothing but wrath in his gray eyes. He was so exasperated that he wanted to destroy both of the humans who woke him up!
“It’s not like that, senior! Feng usually can hear us and will reply to us. However, I felt panicked just now, and tried to call out to her, but I didn’t receive her reply! Didn’t you want to throw us out, senior? Please do!”
What Yun Sheng said made Yao Guang’s face twisted. “F*ck! You think I don’t want to throw you out? You think I don’t want to?” Yao Guang was so infuriated that he was already cursing. The old man suddenly chuckled. “Yao Guang, calm down.”
Yao Guang was quite embarrassed by what Yun Sheng said. He wanted to throw them out, but he couldn’t! He couldn’t enter the tenth floor at all. If Yun Sheng and Mu Xiaojin were elsewhere in the Dragon Palace, he would’ve thrown them out already without a word!
“Senior…” Yun Sheng thought that they were going to be thrown out, but nobody replied to him. He called out to the guy again, but it was the old man’s voice that responded. “Guys, this is truly an unusual situation. Yun Feng seemed to be in some sort of trouble, but don’t worry. She’ll be fine. Just stay here.” The old man never spoke again. Yun Sheng and Mu Xiaojin were both anxious, but they couldn’t come out. They could only pray that Yun Feng was safe.
