Sun Zhongyan was stunned by these words. This means that Rong Xiu is on the fourth floor, and Chu Liuyue is likely to be on the seventh floor! Th-this…
“Uncle-Master, what do we do now?” Sun Zhongyan was an experienced man, but he also was at a loss of what to do.
Ye Zhiting frowned deeply as he fanned himself frantically. “This evil beast is dead set on coming out. If we can’t tame it once and for all, I’m afraid that nobody will be able to enter Jiuyou Tower!”
Not to mention how he wasn’t entirely confident of being able to tame it while Jiuyou Tower was falling apart.
Even if he could do it, how much time would it take? Would Chu Liuyue and Rong Xiu—who were inside the tower—be able to stay safe till then?
The black karmic fire has been released now, and it has probably already engulfed half the tower! The two of them are probably in precarious positions!
Ye Zhiting suddenly rushed toward the Jiuyou Tower!
At the same time, a ball of black karmic fire rose!
The heatwave kept Ye Zhiting outside!
Another crack appeared on the Jiuyou Tower, and more flames burst out!
The air surrounding Jiuyou Tower was scorching hot, and the trees around the tower had started to burn.
Ye Zhiting stared at Jiuyou Tower as his heart sank!
“Listen up everyone! Activate the Locking Heaven Formation with full force! Tame this evil beast!” The aged voice spread far and wide as it echoed in the skies above Tian Lu Academy!
“Yes!” All the elders and teachers replied in unison!
While the outside was a mess, the interior of Jiuyou Tower was eerily quiet.
The seventh floor.
Unlike the six floors below, the seventh floor was a large, empty space.
Chu Liuyue stood in the middle of the space as she watched everything before her, her emotions in a jumble.
There was a giant, transparent three-legged cauldron before her. It was unclear what material the cauldron was forged out of; it was entirely clear, and it had a strange pattern carved on the outside.
Perhaps because of its age, but the pattern was a little unclear.
Even after staring at it for a while, Chu Liuyue couldn’t make out what the pattern was.
But that wasn’t important. More importantly, black karmic fire was burning wildly in the cauldron!
The entire space was scorching because of the flames!
The fire in the cauldron was quickly flowing outward!
If Chu Liuyue could leave now, she would see that the black karmic fire coming from beneath Jiuyou Tower originated from the cauldron!
However, Chu Liuyue was certain that these flames were the exact ones she saw carved on Jiuyou Tower’s door!
On her first day in the tower, she had been burned by the imaginary flames, and she almost lost her life. Looking back, it must have been this thing!
An aggressive and intimidating aura flowed out of the cauldron endlessly!
Chu Liuyue took a deep breath.
Tuan Zi swallowed the seventh floor’s barrier, and she had followed it up here. Chu Liuyue saw all this when she came up.
Never did she expect such an eerie fire to be hidden on the seventh floor of Jiuyou Tower!
Based on my understanding of Jiuyou Tower, this thing has probably been here the whole time. How strange. The Pit of Heavenly Origins is a site for cultivation. Nobody would trap a fiend here, not to mention leaving such an eerie flame behind.
This thing was cold to its core. Even from such a distance, Chu Liuyue felt chills running down her spine.
It was hard to imagine who had set up all of this in Jiuyou Tower.
Suddenly, two red dots appeared in the fire!
The next moment, Chu Liuyue realized that they weren’t red dots but a pair of blood-red eyes! She had seen this pair of eyes before—it was that eagle’s!
Chu Liuyue had felt the eyes’ threat countless times, so she now recognized it instantly! However, seeing it in person was even more impactful!
The scary and cold aura enveloped her, and there was nowhere to hide!
It seemed as though the blood in Chu Liuyue’s body had frozen as her heart palpitated!
Almost uncontrollably, she walked forward.
At this point, Tuan Zi leaped up from her shoulder and let out a warning cry!
Chu Liuyue was startled and returned to her senses as she paused. Cold sweat instantly broke out across her body. I was hypnotized by those eyes earlier! I would’ve been in danger if I had gotten close!
She knitted her brows together as she watched the flames and asked, “Who exactly are you, and why are you targeting me?”
All she received in reply was a roar.
The other party clearly didn’t intend to answer her question.
Chu Liuyue looked at Tuan Zi. “Tuan Zi, can you tell what fiend this is?”
Tuan Zi scrutinized it but shook its head.
A thought popped up in Chu Liuyue’s head. I have seen many advanced fiends in my past life, but all the eagle-type fiends seemed different from this one. I can’t ascertain its true identity right now, but I’m sure of one thing: this beast wants to get out of here!
Chu Liuyue wondered if the transparent cauldron was used to seal it or domesticate it.
Chu Liuyue dared not act recklessly.
While she was deep in thought, a vicious look flashed across the red eyes.
The next moment, a burst of black karmic fire turned into a pair of giant wings and flew toward Chu Liuyue!
Fierce ice, sharp beak!
In the blink of an eye, it was right in front of Chu Liuyue!
Chu Liuyue was stunned as she tried to back away, but a fearful pressure enveloped her, making her unable to move.
In that moment of hesitation, her body had been enveloped by the pair of wings!
Tuan Zi’s fear rose as it prepared to dash forward!
At this moment, the water droplet quietly suspended in Chu Liuyue’s dantian started spinning quickly!
