Chu Liuyue heard a thunderous sound next to her ear.
The low and burly sword roar entered her ear and went straight to her heart.
The next moment, a harsh sword aura suddenly flew out of the Long Yuan Sword and charged toward Chu Liuyue.
Chu Liuyue went on her toes and rapidly moved backward.
However, the Long Yuan Sword’s sword aura was very formidable. In the blink of an eye, it had already flown to Chu Liuyue and almost pierced through her brows.
Chu Liuyue suddenly drew out a fire whip and swung it toward the sword aura.
The two forces intensely battled.
The fire whip instantly dissipated upon being hit by the sword aura.
Chu Liuyue’s heart turned slightly cold as she immediately threw out the crystal barrier.
A crisp sound was heard as the terrifying sword aura struck the crystal barrier.
Just as Chu Liuyue’s brain was crazily shifting and she was thinking of how to take the chance to escape swiftly, she shockingly discovered that the sword aura was blocked outside by the crystal barrier.
The numerous rays of silver light kept going back and forth above the crystal barrier, and they looked very dazzling. But once the black sword aura hit the barrier, it couldn’t move forward anymore.
Chu Liuyue was stunned. This Long Yuan Sword is a legendary weapon, and one can just think to know how formidable the sword aura it produced is. Yet, this crystal barrier actually blocked it…?
A ridiculous guess immediately appeared in her brain. Rong Xiu gave me this crystal barrier. Perhaps it’s because—
She could confirm that the first crystal barrier that Rong Xiu gave her wasn’t this strong. If not, Rong Xiu wouldn’t have to give her another one when it was damaged.
Just now, she casually threw the crystal barrier out amidst her panic, but who knew that it would actually block the terrifying sword aura?
The sword aura immediately dissipated.
Chu Liuyue looked at it dazedly. I-it’s settled like that? This is a little preposterous…
“Move forward.” A voice suddenly sounded from her heart; it was the legendary three-eyed eagle.
Chu Liuyue asked in confusion, “What?”
“There’s a legendary fiend’s skeleton below the sword,” said the legendary three-eyed eagle quickly and briefly.
Even though its voice was as icy cold as usual, Chu Liuyue could still hear faint agitation.
Chu Liuyue blinked and asked in disbelief, “You’re not asking me to help you retrieve it, right?!”
What’s wrong with it? That’s the Long Yuan Sword!
The legendary three-eyed eagle said, “If you want to recover my physical body, you must have a legendary fiend’s skeleton. Thus, you must make this trip!”
Chu Liuyue refused to give up and asked, “This isn’t the only place that has a legendary fiend’s skeleton. Why don’t we look for it elsewhere?”
“What place?” questioned the legendary three-eyed eagle coldly. “After every legendary fiend dies, its corpse must be returned to their clan. It is a very rare chance to find a legendary fiend’s skeleton left outside. If we give up today, it will be near impossible to find one again in the future!”
Chu Liuyue rubbed her brows painfully. “But you saw the situation just now. The Long Yuan Sword is a legendary weapon, and everyone that went close to it has died! The sword aura is already so formidable… If I get close to it, won’t I be digging my own grave?!”
“Didn’t you stop it?”
Chu Liuyue: “…”
“That legendary fiend’s skeleton is suppressed by the sword, so I temporarily can’t determine which clan’s legendary fiend it belongs to. But when you retrieve it, we’ll naturally know.”
Chu Liuyue was speechless.
She closed her eyes and kept warning herself in her heart. This is my own legendary fiend that I made a contract with… This is my own legendary fiend that I made a contract with… It’s my own legendary fiend, so I have to bear its wrath!
“Is there really no other way?” Chu Liuyue slowly asked, “Why don’t you… try yourself and see if you can bring the legendary fiend’s skeleton back?”
The legendary three-eyed eagle chuckled heartlessly.
Chu Liuyue said, “…I’ll do it.”
She then took a deep breath in and walked toward the Long Yuan Sword again.
At the same time, in Xuan Ji Square.
After all the competitors went in, the people in the square didn’t leave.
Even though they couldn’t see an exciting battle, they could at least see whose name disappeared first on that black marble board.
Besides, these people were transported to the Tianling God Realm through this octagonal transportation formation. How rare was this chance?
The crowd was filled with curiosity and excitement, and they naturally wanted to stay for a while longer to see how the competition would end.
“I wonder what the Tianling God Realm looks like inside! It’s a pity we don’t have a Dijing Yuan meridian. If not, we could go in and take a look!”
“Yeah! Even if it’s just to look around, our lives would be worth it! In the past, many top warriors wanted to go in, but it was to no avail!”
“I wonder who can stay inside the longest and come in first… Perhaps there are also the ancestor’s treasures inside!”
“Look! Someone’s name disappeared!”
Countless pairs of eyes turned toward the floating, black marble board.
Number 31—Wu Ying!
The eight elders glanced at each other.
A figure was suddenly sent out of the transportation formation.
Everyone looked over. They saw that the young man had fainted and that he was covered in blood, looking very ghastly.
The entire square fell silent.
Their previous excitement, hopes, and envy suddenly disappeared as if cold water was poured on them.
At this point, they suddenly realized that the Tianling God Realm was filled with all sorts of fateful treasures, but it was also very dangerous.
How long has he entered? Yet, he’s actually this injured?!
Seeing the name on the marble board, many people looked worried.
In an isolated corner, Jiang Yucheng glanced at him expressionlessly and asked, “How long did he last?”
“Eldest Young Master, one hour.”
“Useless,” said Jiang Yucheng coldly. “Continue to watch the rest.”
