"I know how to find a more powerful Dragon-Phoenix Pool. Would you like to try and find it with me?"
When Mu Chen heard what Cai Xiao had said, he found it tempting. His heart thumped. Although he had tried to restrain himself, he could not help but give Cai Xiao a surprised look. He asked her softly, "How do you do that?"
If it was so easy to locate this Dragon-Phoenix Pool, the participants would have not fought so intensely every time the Dragon-Phoenix Rift opened up.
"If they can discover the locations of Dragon-Phoenix Pool, why can't I?" Cai Xiao said with an enigmatic smile. Mu Chen was stunned, but he knew that Cai Xiao was a mysterious person.
"Will it be very dangerous?" Mu Chen asked.
"If one wants to get something that others could not have, he has to pay a price that they are not willing to pay, isn't that correct?" Cai Xiao looked at Mu Chen and said. "I don't think that you are the type of person, who will do nothing, while waiting for manna to drop down from the sky. Am I right?"
"I just don't want to waste my efforts," Mu Chen said, as he smiled. He slowly nodded his head and said, "I am interested in what you have suggested. If you would like to try it, you can count me in."
Cai Xiao gently clapped her hands together, then said with a smile, "Let's do it, then. If my method works, we will first have to look for a Dragon-Phoenix Pool. Thus, when we are in the Dragon-Phoenix Rift, we will have to seize one of the pools."
"Do we still have to seize the pool? In this case, it will be meaningless for us to look for other pools," Mu Chen said with a frown.
"Don't be silly. The power of some of the pools are strong, and some are weak. The Pseudodragon body and Pseudophoenix body are similar. If we can train in another pool, it will benefit us greatly in the upcoming tests in the Dragon-Phoenix Rift." Cai Xiao explained, as though she was already very familiar with the Dragon-Phoenix Rift.
After pondering this for a while, Mu Chen agreed with Cai Xiao. It seemed like they did indeed have to seize a pool. However, this would mean that there would be a fierce fight, since there were only five Dragon-Phoenix Pools. Mu Chen dared not imagine the intensity of such a fight.
As Mu Chen and Cai Xiao were talking softly to each other, the Dragon-Phoenix Pavilion became noisier. The participants seemed upset with the number of pools.
When Mu Qiu saw this, he shook his head helplessly and said, "Tomorrow, the Dragon-Phoenix Rift will be completely opened. It will be the best time to enter. I hope everyone is well-prepared, as it will be dangerous. Although the beasts are not spiritually intelligent, due to the fall of the real dragon and real phoenix, they are still extremely powerful."
Having said that, Mu Qiu turned and walked away. The Pavilion became increasingly noisy.
"Let's go and get ready for tomorrow. There is nothing much going on here." Mu Chen stood up, as he spoke the words to Cai Xiao.
Cai Xiao nodded, and both of them left the Pavilion.
Some people were watching them leave the Pavilion. Lights flashed across the eyes of Su Biyue and Snapper. Although Mu Chen was only at Grade Three Sovereign, the combat strength that he had displayed was way beyond his rank.
It seemed like there would be some dark horses in the Rift.
Liu Yan looked indifferently at Mu Chen and Cai Xiao as they left the Pavilion. He looked cold, as he muttered to himself, "I will let you off today. However, when we get into the Dragon-Phoenix Rift, I will let you know that it is better off for you to be dead than alive."
In the meantime, no one knew that, when the two had left, a shadow on the top floor had disappeared into thin air.
Mu Chen and Cai Xiao headed toward the western part of Dragon-Phoenix Old Town, in search of a place to rest. After passing through many old streets, just as they were entering a quiet alley, Cai Xiao suddenly stopped. She squinted her beautiful eyes like a cat.
"You have been tailing us for some time. It is time to show yourself."
When Cai Xiao spoke, the thunder light on Mu Chen's body exploded. He grasped his fist, and a Great Meru Demonic Pillar appeared. Without hesitation, he threw it into the space behind them.
A hand extended out in the air, pushing away the Great Meru Demonic Pillar, and creating a surge in the air.
The ground cracked, as the Great Meru Demonic Pillar was thrown back. Mu Chen's body shook, and the slate beneath his feet turned into powder. A figure in white gradually appeared in the direction the surge had come from.
The person had long, dark hair, and his eyebrows were straight, slanting slightly upward. His eyes were bright, and he looked handsome. He had a mystical fluctuation around him.
"Hahaha, you are powerful. You can even sense my Void Remote Technique. Since when did the North Territory have such a powerful person?" the man in white asked with a smile, as he fixed his gaze on Cai Xiao.
Although he looked gorgeous, and could make a girl fall head over heels for him, Cai Xiao merely glanced at him and said, "What is so great about the Technique? It's no big deal."
"Who are you? Why are you tailing us?" Mu Chen said with a frown.
"Please pardon me. I heard your conversation by chance, and I am interested in your plan," the man in white said.
Mu Chen was taken aback. He had surrounded their conversation with spiritual energy, but this man could still hear it. He was extremely powerful.
"If you are interested, you can do it by yourself. We do not need extra help," Cai Xiao said coldly. She was not interested in such people, those who had offered themselves voluntarily.
The man in white had never expected Cai Xiao to reject him, so boldly, right to his face. He frowned slightly and said, "With my help, I believe that it will be easier for you to succeed. No one will bother us, too."
"It seems like you have a big appetite," Cai Xiao waved her hand and said. "Buzz off. I will forgive you for eavesdropping and tailing us."
"Will you not reconsider my offer?" the man in white said, with glitters in his eyes. He said softly, "Isn't it better to have one more friend?"
"Are you trying to threaten me?" Cai Xiao laughed. She was so charming, her looks could make one's heart race.
The man in white was silent, and just stared at Cai Xiao. After a while, with a grave look, he disappeared into thin air.
As he was about to disappear, Cai Xiao had disappeared from the spot where she was standing. She re-appeared on a spot, a few hundred feet away, then pointed her finger at the space.
The space started to surge. Cai Xiao's finger seemed to have pierced through the air. There was a powerful Spiritual Energy Windstorm, and it crushed the slates on the street into powder.
After she had done this, Cai Xiao returned to the previous spot, and the space resumed its natural peace. Cai Xiao raised her brows and said, "This man is powerful. It is a pity that there are so many seals in my body. Otherwise, I would have locked him up in the space, and he would not be able to escape."
It was obvious that, when they cross-sworded with each other earlier, she did not have the upper-hand.
Mu Chen thought for a while, then said softly, "If I am not wrong, he is Fang Yi, ranked number one in Dragon-Phoenix Record."
"Oh? Then you have almost offended all of the entire top five in the Record!" Cai Xiao said, sounding shocked. However, she could not hide the playful look in her eyes.
Mu Chen gritted his teeth. He looked at her and said, "You are the one who has offended him!"
"This man is cunning. I don't like him, and I have no wish to collaborate with him." Cai Xiao shrugged and did not seem bothered by the man in white. Neither did not seem to be afraid of the number one influential person in Dragon-Phoenix Record.
"It is up to you." Mu Chen nodded. The man in white was oppressive, and Mu Chen was not keen in collaborating with him either. Although it would spell trouble for Mu Chen to have offended him, Mu Chen was never afraid of a little trouble.
Cai Xiao was surprised to learn that Mu Chen shared the same sentiment as her. She said with a smile, "I thought that you would be unwilling to let him go. After all, if you befriend him, Liu Yan would not dare find trouble with you."
"If Liu Yan wants to find trouble with me, my door is open. I have never been afraid of him. Moreover, I don't befriend people just to make use of them." Mu Chen smiled. He then looked at Cai Xiao and said, "I still have you, don't I? Although Fang Yi is powerful, you are powerful as well."
"I was filled with a bit of admiration for you just a moment ago, but now…" Cai Xiao stared at him, before turning away to walk down the street. Mu Chen laughed, as he ran to catch up with her.
After the two of them had left, a white figure appeared on the rooftop of a house some distance away. He looked at the direction where the two had traveled, and then looked down. There were blood traces on his fingers.
His dark eyes were glittering, and he was smiling. He waved his sleeve, and disappeared into thin air.
"Who is this girl…her presence will be indeed prove interesting in the Dragon-Phoenix Rift."
