Chapter 1118 – The Seventh Challenge (2)
Nangong Liuyun had personally set out, so very quickly, the passageway to the seventh challenge was found.
After a short rest, the party then set out for the passageway.
As they entered the teleportation array, everyone only felt an instant flashing by, before they were pushed out of the teleportation array.
When their eyes stabilized again, their surrounding environment had already gone through huge changes.
If the roasting hot desert from the sixth challenge could be considered hell, then the current environment here could definitely be called heaven.
This was a coastal beach.
The beach had fine and soft sand, with coconut trees standing tall and erect. Then, further out, was the markless, blue-green waves of the sea.
Azure seawater… A wide sea and open sky with no visible end in sight.
Taking a deep breath, one could feel that this air refreshes the mind, and moistened the
heart and lungs. As if all their troubles had disappeared without a trace.
"This place… How can it be like this?"
Being stimulated by the thrill of the sixth challenge. After jumping out from the teleportation array, they had all taken up battle positions, and were immediately dumbfounded.
"Such soft, fine sand… such a beautiful ocean…" Li Yaoyao took two steps forward with both hands extended. Her eyes were tightly closed as she took a deep breath. The expression on her face was of total bliss.
Situ Ming followed after, keeping her close.
"This place… really strange." Su Luo's eyebrows knitted slightly. She lifted her eyes to meet Nangong Liuyun's.
Nangong Liuyun nodded in agreement, yet his eyes were clear and cool: "In front of absolute strength, everyone that tries to deceive people are just paper tigers."
When Su Luo heard this, she immediately laughed and clutched his lean waist: "You sure are arrogant."
"This is self-confidence, okay? You must believe in your man." Nangong Liuyun pinched her sparkling, translucent, snow-white and jade-like nose.
Li Yaoyao hated the most to see these two people bantering flirtatiously. So, seeing this, she scoffed coldly and heavily!
What the eye doesn't see, the heart doesn't grieve over! She turned her head away in a rage.
"Ah! What is that?" Li Yaoyao pointed to a boulder in the distance which was about seven meters tall and uttered her surprise.
That boulder's entire body was snow-white, bearing the sun, standing for a long time, unmoving, by the seashore.
On the boulder, there was a faint figure in white sitting and angling, giving the others a kind of immortal to the bone, a feeling of being exceedingly refined.
Only, the distance was somewhat far. Additionally, he was seated with his back to them, so
them, so they couldn't see his appearance clearly.
"Let's go over and take a look." Nangong Liuyun picked up Su Luo and took the lead to go over.
The group of people followed closely behind him.
In less than the time it took to make a cup of tea, everyone had arrived at the side of that huge boulder.
They were now close and could clearly see an immortal-like back view floating on the boulder.
The outline of this person's back was clean and unusual. He seemed to be about twenty-something years old, dressed in black clothing with luxurious patterns. His ink-black hair was tied up with a white unadorned ribbon.
Just looking at his figure from behind, was able to hypnotize and captivate people. Don't know as to what sort of appearance he would have from the front.
The group of people stopped ten meters away from that mysterious man who was up ahead.
None of them said a word, nor did they dare to disturb him rashly.
After experiencing the life-and-death adventures the life-and-death adventures of the sixth challenge, even Li Yaoyao had become a lot more cautious.
Throughout this journey of charging through the challenges, the things they'd encountered were either arrays or magical beasts. They had yet to meet a real living person.
The motionless-as-mountain person before them seemed to have stood here since ancient times. The scenic landscape of the sea and mountain fused together with the man's body, giving off a strange feeling.
Don't know how long had passed, before the man, the fishing rod with the float attached to the string suddenly sank down!
Then, he lifted it up casually, and one could see a lively blue fish leaping and frisking about.
"This is…" Su Luo couldn't help but be shaken by shock.
This fish was not at all an ordinary fish. If she hadn't guessed wrong, this blue fish was identical to the Amethyst Thorned Fish and contained an abundance of spirit energy!
Su Luo's gaze carried some suspicion as she looked towards Nangong Liuyun.
