After staying in the lake for so long, Qin Yun no longer felt fear towards the bottom of the lake.
After diving for more than ten hours, Qin Yun felt as though his body was slowly descending. There was no pressure at all.
"We've finally seen the light!" From time to time, he would release his Mental Energy to investigate. But now, he suddenly felt that the bottom was no longer bottomless but instead, he could detect what was down there.
He quickly took a glowing stone and threw it down.
After the glowing stone fell down, it illuminated the area below.
Qin Yun was pleasantly surprised when he saw the bottom of the lake.
The bottom of the lake was extremely clean. It was a crystal flat area and it was very strange.
"Could it have been man-made?" Qin Yun looked at the crystal ground beneath him and felt puzzled.
He had originally thought that he would land on the flat surface of the crystal. Who knew that his body would pierce through it and enter the crystal.
"What's going on? Is there more down there?" Qin Yun recalled the rumors. Many people had encountered a barrier when diving.
However, he had already felt that he had passed through that barrier.
Through the thick crystal floor, he fell into a dark stone room.
There was no water.
Qin Yun took out a glowing stone and illuminated the room. He discovered that the walls were filled with crystal stones.
There was another door on the crystal room. He walked over and opened it.
When he opened the door, Qin Yun was extremely excited. That was because this door was the secret to the Myriad Star Lake!
After opening the crystal door, there was a very beautiful crystal corridor. Inside the crystal stone wall were glowing stones that could constantly emit light.
The crystal corridor was very long. Qin Yun carefully stepped into it, fearing that there might be some sort of trap. He walked a few thousand meters and finally reached the end. Here was another crystal door.
"The secret of the Myriad Star Lake is inside?" Qin Yun took a few deep breaths as his heart thumped in his chest. His heart was filled with curiosity but it was also filled with fear.
He was worried that if he opened the door, he would encounter some sort of danger. Or perhaps, there was a thousand year old ghost inside.
In the end, he still pushed open the crystal door!
He felt that he was already here. If he didn't go in and take a look, he would be thinking about this every day.
Pushing open the crystal door, there was a spacious and round hall, it was all made of crystal, bright and beautiful.
The crystal palace was hundreds of meters wide and in the middle, there was a giant bull wearing golden armor. The giant bull's body was dozens of meters long, like a small hill. It's eyes were closed as it laid there.
The horns weren't of a bull but rather the horns of a dragon. The scales on it's body were all dragon scales. This was the legendary dragon bull!
Of course, there was still a big difference from the legends. This dragon bull didn't hold the small island but was instead sleeping underneath it.
In the spacious crystal hall, there was only this dragon bull, which seemed to be sealed here.
Qin Yun found it strange. The dragon bull was so large. How did it get sucked in?
"Although I didn't get anything but it can be verified that the legendary Dragon bull really did exist." Qin Yun was very curious. Who had built this crystal palace at the bottom of the lake?
He did not dare to go in. He stood right by the door. If the dragon bull became aggressive, he could retreat into the crystal corridor as well.
While he was carefully observing the crystal palace, the dragon bull suddenly opened it's huge eyes.
Qin Yun was alarmed as he hurriedly retreated into the hallway.
"Such a weak human... How did you get here?" The dragon Bull spoke. it's voice was slow, old and rough.
Qin Yun composed himself and calmed himself down. He answered, "I... From the sky above the Myriad Star Lake, I saw an array and found eight routes. I entered the bottom of the lake and followed the lines to reach here."
"So that's how it is. To be able to find that picture, one must meet many conditions. This should not be something that a weak person can do." Dragon Bull was extremely puzzled. It's dragon-like eyes were filled with dragon-like might as it stared at Qin Yun.
"Maybe it's a lucky chance!" Qin Yun chuckled dryly. He never expected to be looked down upon by the dragon bull.
"Although this crystal palace is not prepared for you, it is indeed your fate that you are able to come here. I presume that you also have some ability." Dragon Bull did not inquire about why Qin Yun was able to come here. He said, "How much do you know about this crystal palace?"
Qin Yun shook his head and answered, "Not at all! Above this lake, there is a small island and on this small island, there is Star Xuan Wu Academy. I am a student of this academy."
"The Star Xuan Wu Academy should have been created by that little kid Lan Xiao. He is obsessed with the Dao of Star Martial Arts. The moment I heard this name, I knew it was him." Dragon Bull said.
The Star Xuan Wu Academy was indeed built by martial king Lan Xiao!
Lan Xiao was a Martial King who had lived over ten thousand years ago. However, in this Dragon bull's eyes, he was just a little brat!
"Senior Dragon Bull, can you tell me about this crystal palace?" Qin Yun asked.
"Is there a wave in the Myriad Star Lake? If there's no wave, you wouldn't be able to see the star map either." Dragon bull asked.
"Yes, it's been a year or so since the waves started." Qin Yun nodded.
"The ancient nine suns are finally going to fall. The Land of the Nine Desolate will forever fall into darkness!"
"Why will the Nine Suns fall? has it anything to do with the Nine Yang Divine Spirit and the Nine Yin Divine Spirit?" Qin Yun asked hurriedly. The legend was indeed true. The Myriad Star Lake had a unique array that allowed one to sense the changes in the stars.
Therefore, when the nine suns were about to die, the Myriad Star Lake array also observed it and issued a warning.
"The Nine Yang Spirit is obtained from the Nine Yang Soul. However, as long as the Nine Yang Spirit is still here, it will not affect the safety of the Nine Yang Soul! The reason why the nine suns are in danger is because nine yang soul have been separated from the nine suns." Dragon Bull let out a long sigh. "The Nine Yang Soul of the Nine Suns are the foundation of the Nine Suns, just like the martial spirit in your totem. What would happen if your totem didn't have a Martial Spirit?"
Qin Yun took a deep breath. "Then where did the Nine Yang Soul go?"
"There are only two possibilities. Either it has perished or was taken away!" The Dragon Bull said, "It's also possible that the Nine Yang Soul sensed the danger and scattered throughout the Nine Desolate Lands."
The soul of the nine suns would definitely be extremely powerful. If he could obtain it, then his strength would definitely soar.
"Senior, who built this crystal palace? To be able to construct such a powerful crystal palace, he must be very powerful." Qin Yun said.
Dragon Bull laughed. "So what if he can build a crystal palace? it's far from being as strong as the people who built this entire immortal graveyard."
The connection between the Myriad Star Crystal Palace and the Immortal Graveyard alarmed Qin Yun!
The Immortal Graveyard had a great deal to do with Xie Qirou! As for Qin Yun's mother, she had obtained the approval of the Nine Yang Divine Spirit because she had obtained the painting.
Therefore, Qin Yun was sure that the Nine Yang Divine Spirit was connected to the Immortal Graveyard.
Right now, he just couldn't find any clues because his strength was too weak. Moreover, the Magical Beasts running rampant made it impossible for him to cross the other side of the Cloud Dragon River.
"The master of the Crystal Palace, who is also my master, is dead. I stayed here to protect this lake from magical beasts." The dragon bull's voice was filled with sadness.
"Senior, the magical beasts outside are rampant. No magical beasts have appeared before, why is that?" Qin Yun felt that the dragon Bull might know something.
"Magical beasts come from the Magical Desolate land. They are born and live inside the Magical Desolate land. They want to find the Immortal Graveyard, so they released a large number of magical beasts. Master and I fought them a long time ago." Dragon Bull said, "The person buried in the Immortal Graveyard is the daughter of the with, that's my young mistress."
What was buried in the Immortal Graveyard was actually a woman and it was even the daughter of a witch!
Qin Yun did not know how powerful she was but when he thought of the magical beings in the magical desolate land, he realized that in order to find the Immortal Graveyard and allow so many magical beasts into the Cloud Dragon Mountain Range, they must be searching for something extremely important.
With such a big commotion caused by the Magical Desolate Land, the big sects in the Martial Desolate Land would definitely know about it. They might have already entered the Cloud Dragon Mountain Range to explore the Immortal Graveyard.
"The daughter of the witch is buried in the Immortal Graveyard, along with the Nine Yang Divine spirit and Nine Yin Divine Spirit. Once word of this spread, all sorts of demons, beasts and people would head to the Immortal Graveyard." Dragon Bull said again.
Qin Yun's heart jolted. The Nine Yang Divine Spirit was in his hands, while the Nine Yin Divine Spirit was in Xie Qirou's.
Back then, it was Xie Qirou who had given him the Nine Yang Divine Spirit!
"Elder sister Grand Preceptor, how did she obtain the Nine Yang Divine Spirit and the Nine Yin Divine Spirit? Did she enter the Immortal Graveyard?" Qin Yun was extremely puzzled.
Qin Yun looked into the hall and noticed that other than the eight crystal doors, there was also a pale golden door.
He asked, "Senior, where does that door lead to?"
The other eight doors all led to the outside, while that golden door seemed to lead to another place.
"That's the core of the crystal palace. Even if it's me, I'm still unable to open it. You just have to try and find out. You must be very curious to be able to come here." Dragon bull said.
Qin Yun nodded and quickly walked towards the pale golden crystal door.
At the door, he put his hand on the crystal and pushed.
"I really can't move it!" He sighed and released his inner force.
After releasing his inner force, the crystal door suddenly moved.
"Impossible!" Dragon Bull opened his eyes wide, shouting out in shock.
"But I did push the door!" Qin Yun was pleasantly surprised as he continued releasing his inner force and pushed open the golden crystal door.
Just as he pushed open the golden crystal door, the Nine Yang Divine Spirit appeared on his right wrist. The nine black pearls emitted a faint golden light.
He had been hiding the Nine Yang Divine Spirit within his flesh and blood for a very long time but it had never appeared suddenly like this.
However, just as he was about to push open the door, it suddenly appeared on his own!
"Why is the Nine Yang Divine Spirit in your hands? You entered the Immortal Graveyard?" Dragon Bull was surprised to the extreme. Suddenly, a burst of light burst out from it's body. After being enveloped by the golden light, it's gigantic body began to gradually shrink.
Soon, the originally huge dragon bull turned into a small old man wearing a golden robe. He had a big nose, a full head of white hair and two small dragon horns on his head.
The sudden transformation of the dragon Bull into a human gave Qin Yun a fright!
