Walking a little deeper into the cave, Qi Huan suddenly discovered that there was a huge jade monument standing in front, which looked like a tombstone, but the tombstone looked really luxurious . After looking at it for a long time, she finally discovered that the words on the tombstone seemed to be written using Antarctic Crystal Sands .
These things were so ancient that even those old elders in Qing Yun Sect had only heard of it before . Qi Huan knew about it because her Senior Uncle Xu Yang Zi would mention it occasionally when he taught her refining skills . She still remembered his eyes gleaming like a beast seeing a beautiful woman whenever he talked about it .
She only knew that this kind of thing was a top-level refining material in the ancient times . It was said that it could refine magical tools of Celestial Devices level and above . Unfortunately, with the demise of the ancient monks, many geniuses and treasures also disappeared . Antarctic Crystal Sands was one of the legends .
The reason why Qi Huan was certain that the words were written using Antarctic Crystal Sands was completely because Xu Yang Zi had described to her that the Antarctic Crystal Sands had extremely cold properties and could not be touched with bare hands, otherwise even the monks who crossed the dujie stage would be caught frozen . In fact, around the purest Antarctic Crystal Sands, there would be another kind of refining material, called Ice Soul .
The Ice Soul did not disappear with the Antarctic Crystal Sands, but that thing had only grown an inch long after a thousand years, so it was still very rare . When Qi Huan saw the Ice Soul all over the ground, she was immediately sure .
A tombstone designed to be so ostentatious . Hmm, what is the story behind this… Qi Huan couldn’t help developing a little curiosity about the tomb owner, so she inched her head closer, ready to study the words on the tombstone .
Unfortunately, after looking at it for a long time, she finally gave up helplessly . There was a fact that she had to face, and that was she was indeed illiterate .
“How do you pronounce this word?” Qi Huan pointed her finger at the first strange symbol on the tombstone .
“Mo . ” Mo Ye’s eyes became increasingly strange .
“What about this one?”
“Ye . ”
“Mo Ye…Oh, so the owner of the tomb is Mo Ye… Wait, what?!?! How come it has the same name as you?” After reciting the name several times, Qi Huan finally realized something was wrong . Is there such a coincidence in this world?
Qi Huan looked surprised, her questioning eyes were so big, staring into Mo Ye, but he only smiled .
“Is this person your ancestor?”
“No . ”
“Then, do you know him?”
“No . ”
“Oh…then would you mind if I take this tombstone away?” Since they didn’t know each other, then it was much easier to do things . Although the name on the tombstone was a little weird, Qi Huan cared more about the Antarctic Crystal Sands on it .
However, her words stunned Mo Ye for a while, and then he smiled and shook his head quite helplessly . Although this place was just a burial mound, it felt a bit strange after all that his tombstone was carried away just like that . But then again, a cultivator of Qi Huan’s level was really rare, she wouldn’t even let go of a tombstone .
After keeping the tombstone and the surrounding Ice Soul into her storage ring, Qi Huan finally showed a smile on her face . Although she was forced to come here, the journey was rewarding in the end .
Sure enough, when the tombstone was taken away, the coldness in the cave disappeared instantly . After a long walk, they finally arrived at the destination of this trip .
After entering the main tomb area, Qi Huan finally knew why the tombstone, engraved with Antarctic Crystal Sands, was placed outside . It was because anything inside the main tomb area was a hundred times more valuable than that tombstone outside!
The floor of the main tomb area was covered with chalcedony, even the beads used for lighting the place were made of most precious heterochromatic materials . The pavilions on the walls were actually carved from a whole piece of Qilian Yunfeng Stone . Looking from a distance, there was an artistic conception .
Yunfeng Stone is not considered a precious treasure . It can neither make into medicine nor refining tools . However, the things that are carved from a thousand-year-old Yunfeng Stone will cause its surrounding area to automatically condense into mist, thus, making the Yunfeng Stone precious . Nowadays, a thousand-year-old Yunfeng Stone the size of a thumb is extremely rare, but now in front of Qi Huan was an entire wall of it, and it was still intact well to the wall .
“If I took everything here, would you think I am greedy?”
“No, but you’d better not do it . ” Mo Ye chuckled . This was really Qi Huan’s style of doing things, she was even ready to take everything .
“Why?” Qi Huan just noticed that Mo Ye wasn’t even blinking, looking at these priceless treasures in front of him, which meant that he didn’t care about them at all .
Even Xu Ling Zi would make a fuss if he saw all these but not Mo Ye . Why? Why hadn’t he responded? Finally, Qi Huan felt a little strange .
“Because the snake in front seems very unhappy . ” Mo Ye pointed his finger forward . There was a lotus pond not far away from the two of them . There were lots of lotus flowers on the water . But when she closely looked at the pond, she noticed that it was pitch black, it was impossible to see how deep the pond was at first glance, or what was underneath .
When Mo Ye stretched out his arm, Qi Huan only glanced over, but she was shocked immediately . She finally knew what was in the pond: A snake, no, to be precise, this thing had begun to transform into a dragon!
It was a silver snake with a pair of dragon horns . The snake head alone occupied half of the pool . Those dark silver and cold eyes stared at the two trespassers without emotion .
“I guess it seems that it hasn’t eaten for many years . ” Qi Huan backed away as she spoke, ready to run away as soon as the situation was going south . Although her cultivation level had reached jiedan stage, she was quite sure that compared with this snake, who knew how many years it had lived, whether it was herself or Mo Ye, both of them were like a meal for the snake, perhaps not even worth a meal .
“It has indeed been many years . ” Mo Ye looked at the snake with a little nostalgia in his eyes . The Primordial Unique Species Flying Snake is said to be a mutant Flying Snake . If it weren’t born of a different colour from its species, it would not be forced out of this world and be raised as a pet by him later .
But he didn’t expect that after all these years, his snake that was initially only as thick as his wrist would become like this, even Mo Ye himself was taken aback .
“Can it eat people?”
“Maybe not . ” Mo Ye turned his head and thought about it . He remembered feeding it radishes last time, although he didn’t know that snakes actually didn’t eat radishes .
“Hiss” The snake’s blood-red forked tongue hissed . Perhaps the snake was irritated because it actually protruded a small half of its body from the pond, and the entire pond was suddenly covered by its body . The snake stretched its head out towards Mo Ye, getting really close to him, as if it wanted to touch him . It only needed to open its mouth, and then Mo Ye would be swallowed completely .
After a long pause, the snake seemed to show no signs of cannibalism . It just looked at Mo Ye back and forth with those lantern-like eyes, totally ignoring Qi Huan .
Although being ignored by a snake made her very upset, she would rather be so .
“It seems to like you very much . ” Qi Huan was not sure if her eyes had mistaken or not, but from the looks of the snake, it looked kind of flattered… Can a snake even show this kind of expression?
“Yeah . ” Mo Ye stretched out his hand and patted the snake’s head, then looked back at Qi Huan, “Let’s go . ” After speaking, he walked around the pool and continued ahead .
Qi Huan also wanted to move forward but the thing was, when she took a step, the snake immediately turned its eyes to her, watching her, “Are you sure it won’t eat me?”
“Don’t worry . If I were the snake, I would definitely not eat you . ”
“I’m afraid it will cause indigestion . ”
