“Why don’t we head in and take a look inside?” Kong Xiang Yi turned to Sima You Yue, “Since we’ve already come all the way here, I’d feel unresolved if we didn’t take a look inside!”
“That’s true . ” Han Miao Shuang said, “Even if there’s nothing inside, we can just take a look to see what it looks like . Junior Brother, why don’t we continue heading in?”
Sima You Yue frowned . When she saw that everyone wanted to go in, she suppressed the suspicions in her heart and nodded, “Then, we’ll just go in and look around . ”
“But there are so many rooms . How do we go in?”
“Eldest Senior, do you know how to go in?’ Su Xiao Xiao asked Jiang Jun Zhe .
Since he’d seen the ancient text, he should know how to go in, right?
Jiang Jun Zhe looked at the area around the stone houses . Everyone was the same and filled with many things . It didn’t look like the passageway extended here .
It seemed as though this place was the end of the cemetery .
“We hit a dead end . ” He walked a full round before coming back to say, “But there’s no coffin . It’s rumoured that the Azure Emperor personally built a crystal coffin, but I haven’t seen it . ”
“Crystal coffin?! What a waste . But I bet it’d have been absorbed anyway . ” Han Miao Shuang lamented .
“That crystal coffin isn’t just your ordinary item . It probably wouldn’t have been absorbed by the Qi spirit . ” Jiang Jun Zhe said .
“Then we should look for it properly . If we can see that person from the ancient times… hehe . ” Han Miao Shuang laughed, “Junior Brother, do you think that people of our time will look nicer, or people from that time?”
“It should be around the same? After so much time passed, those ancient people should have finished evolving . ’ Sima You Yue said .
“Haha, even people have to evolve? Could it be that they don’t look like what we do now?” Kong Xiang Yi laughed .
“Of course . Do you think that people started off looking like this?” Sima You Yue said .
“Then how did people look like in the past?” Han Miao Shuang asked with curiosity .
“They… how should I know?” Sima You Yue almost said it .
Was she supposed to talk to them about the theory of evolution? That monkeys and humans actually shared a huge percentage of their DNA?
It would be strange if they believed her!
However, those weak humans on earth had long since figured that out .
“We had better talk about our current circumstances instead . ” Ximen Feng broke off their train of conversation .
He had heard of You Yue’s evolution talk before . At that time, he felt like it was a little inconceivable . He knew that if they continued asking her, they would end up waiting here all day .
Although Jiang Jun Zhe had heard of the discussion of human evolution, he didn’t resonate with it .
“There should be a mechanism here, but it isn’t easy to find . ” He took another look at his surroundings but he couldn’t find it .
“There are so many things inside these rooms . They may be blocking something . Let’s first clean it up before searching . ” Sima You Yue said .
Every single stone house was chock full of items . Some had retained their original appearance while some had turned to dust, littering the ground and covering it in a thick layer .
Sima You Yue gave a thought and tossed everything into her spirit pagoda .
Little Spirit was currently playing with Ling Long inside the space when a whole pile of dust suddenly came piling down . If not for his quick reflexes, he would have been buried six feet under .
“Yue Yue, what are you doing?!” He hopped up in anger and shouted at her .
“Accident, accident . ” Sima You Yue said apologetically .
“What’s going on with you?” Little Spirit felt like something was off about her . It was strange for her to make this kind of low-levelled mistake .
“I’m not sure myself . ” Sima You Yue said, “Ever since I came into the cemetery, I’ve been feeling a little strange . There’s something weird going on . I have a strange feeling . ”
“Strange? How so?” Little Spirit examined the area outside, saying, “There’s nothing strange about it, though . The space outside is normal . There really isn’t anything . ”
“Could I just be thinking too much?” Sima You Yue said tentatively, “Forget it . Since I can’t think of anything, I might as well figure out a way to head into the inner cemetery . ”
“You Yue, what are you thinking about?’ Kong Xiang Yi asked when she saw Sima You Yue’s blank gaze .
“Thinking about whether or not there’s any mechanism inside the houses . ” Sima You Yue randomly said something .
“Did you see anything?”
“Nope . ” Sima You Yue shook her head, “If it were an array, I’d be able to see something . But this kind of specialisation in mechanisms is outside of my expertise . ”
“Everyone is rather unfamiliar with this . It seems like we have to just bet on it . ” Han Miao Shuang said .
“Let me try . ” Halcyon said .
“Alright . Take a look to see if you have any idea . ” Sima You Yue said .
Halcyon closed his eyes and began to sense the area .
Han Miao Shuang rushed up beside You Yue, asking in a small voice, “Isn’t Halcyon a spirit beast? How will he know about this?”
“He doesn’t . ”
“Then why would he?”
“He doesn’t know about this, but he’s a spatial spirit beast . He’s rather sensitive towards space . He would be able to tell if there were any irregularities . ” Sima You Yue said .
“A spatial beast has this kind of ability as well?” This was the first time that they had ever heard of something like this, and were extremely shocked . They looked at halcyon with curiosity and contemplation .
Halcyon sensed the surroundings before he opened his eyes and pointed to a stone house on the left, saying, “There’s some ripples behind that area . ”
Everyone entered that stone house and kept the items away . They didn’t even leave a stone before, revealing the entirety of the area .
They inspected every nook and cranny carefully, but they didn’t find anything .
Jiang Jun Zhe’s eyes flashed with impatience . However, it was only for a short moment and nobody noticed it .
Sima You Yue suddenly sucked in a breath .
“Junior Brother? What’s going on?”
Sima You Yue pulled her hand back, saying, “when I was touching the wall earlier, I was pricked by something and bled on the wall . ”
“Guys, look!” Kong Xiang Yi cried out as she saw a change happening to the wall .
The initially empty wall started to turn white, filling with a myriad of colours successively . Blue sky, green grass, a little river even flowed by gently . The river contained two lotus leaves that drifted alongside . Then, a stem slowly appeared, and a nine-petaled lotus appeared after it .
And that flower… . Was actually black!
The dark black leaves scattered a cold kind of qi, and the soft lotus stalk was like the beautiful body of a maiden .
This single black stalked nine-petaled flower was recklessly growing in this patch, blossoming in a magnificent and calm way .
Everyone was stunned by this black lotus, and that charm that was released icily, put everyone in a daze, causing them to lose their bearings in this little space .
However, before they had time to appreciate it, that black lotus divided itself into two, and those two halves of the lotus quickly disappeared, retreating behind the two ends of the wall .
At this moment, a long crack started to form on the wall, transforming the wall into a two-doored panel door .
