Rong Xiu spent about two hours collecting all the blood in the cave. Of course, he only collected the blood of the one who had been locked up here back then.
As for the rest, he ignored it.
A fist-sized drop of blood floated quietly in front of the two of them. An indescribably powerful pressure gradually emitted from above—it was very shocking!
The faint light of the pearl shone on it, emitting a strange and beautiful light.
Chu Liuyue asked softly, “What do we do next?”
Could it be that the heirloom was left in this blood bead? It doesn’t seem likely either…
At this moment, a fluctuation came from Chu Liuyue’s dantian.
She was stunned.
This commotion was caused by Zi Chen.
With a flash of black light, a huge black figure appeared in the cave!
“Zi Chen?” Zi Chen rarely took the initiative to come out, so Chu Liuyue was very surprised.
However, Zi Chen stared intently at the ball of blood with a solemn expression.
“…You noticed something?” asked Chu Liuyue.
Zi Chen nodded. “The aura of the great phoenix dragon ancestor is hidden in this blood pearl!”
Chu Liuyue’s eyes shrunk, and Rong Xiu narrowed his eyes.
Zi Chen immediately explained, “Of course, this doesn’t mean that the blood pearl belongs to that ancestor. It only means that there should be the power of that ancestor in the blood pearl.”
Zi Chen paused before saying, “If I’m not wrong… what this person obtained back then should be the heirloom of their ancestor!”
As soon as Zi Chen finished speaking, the entire cave fell silent.
When Chu Liuyue heard Zi Chen’s first sentence, she vaguely felt that something was wrong. Now that she heard his explanation, she was even more shocked!
Rong Xiu was silent for a moment before a playful smile appeared on his face. “It’s only rumored that it obtained an extremely powerful and precious heirloom. I only thought that it was a powerful ancestor. I didn’t expect… it to be their first ancestor…”
Zi Chen nodded. There was no mistake since he had the great phoenix dragon’s bloodline power in his body.
This aura was exactly the same as the pressure brought about by the dragon roar they had heard after entering!
“If that’s the case, it’ll be even more interesting.” Rong Xiu’s lips curled up slightly, and there seemed to be ripples in his deep phoenix eyes. “The great phoenix dragon that obtained his first ancestor’s heirloom is the heir chosen by their ancestor. Its bloodline strength is the purest, so how can it go crazy?”
Chu Liuyue subconsciously glanced at the ball of blood. Exactly! These two ancient legendary fiend clans are most particular about bloodline power and are extremely protective of their ancestors.
For example, although Tuan Zi came from an ordinary background… After obtaining the approval of her ancestor, the entire red-gold heavenly phoenix clan’s attitude toward Chu Liuyue immediately changed greatly—from disgust to respect. However, it was because Tuan Zi’s ancestor had personally chosen Tuan Zi.
And how could someone with such pure bloodline power and their ancestor’s heirloom do such a crazy thing to harm their own clan?
“It seems that there’s something else behind what happened back then… It obtained the inheritance of its ancestor, but nobody actually knows about such an important matter?”
Rong Xiu laughed faintly. “It might not be that nobody knows. It’s just that… those who know about this have buried this secret forever.”
“Miao Yang!” A thought flashed across Chu Liuyue’s mind. It had to be him! In that case, it isn’t difficult to explain why only his blood is left in the cave! More importantly, the person who became the clan leader after that crazy great phoenix dragon was killed was Miao Yang!
As the biggest beneficiary of this matter, how could he have nothing to do with it? This secret has probably been completely hidden from the entire great phoenix dragon clan!
“But after so many years, why haven’t the people of the great phoenix dragon clan discovered anything fishy?”
This Seven Lotus Peak, this cave, and these bloodstains! Since Zi Chen can sense this, their clansmen should be able to as well.
Rong Xiu seemed to have guessed her thoughts and explained, “It’s naturally because everything here has been tampered with. Do you still remember that before we came in, I burned the cave entrance?”
Chu Liuyue nodded.
“There are some things left behind by Miao Yang there. It should be because of this that nobody has discovered the secret here all these years.”
This was indeed the most reasonable explanation!
As the clan leader, Miao Yang naturally did whatever he wanted and let whoever he wanted in. If he didn’t want these people to discover these things, how could anyone?
Who would dare to touch the power he had left behind?
But Rong Xiu was different. As soon as he arrived, he attacked mercilessly.
Coupled with Zi Chen, this secret was naturally exposed.
Miao Yang probably never would’ve thought they would dig up such an old secret when he locked them up here to threaten them!
If this matter is exposed, Miao Yang will probably not be able to continue being the clan leader! Compared to their first ancestor, what is the clan leader? The entire great phoenix dragon clan will probably suppress him!
At this moment, Zi Chen suddenly took a step forward. “Stand back.”
Chu Liuyue and Rong Xiu glanced at each other and took a step back.
Zi Chen’s wings suddenly spread!
Immediately after, Chu Liuyue saw a faint glow suddenly appear on his wings. It was the skeleton and power of the great phoenix dragon!
Then, the ball of blood slowly floated toward Zi Chen. In the end, it split into two and melted into his wings!
The ground under their feet suddenly trembled violently!
