Chapter 972: He’s Calling for Help!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
When the Three Yuan convened at Ancient Phoenix Mountain’s peak, they would definitely have more benefits the nearer they were to it. If one was lucky enough, they could take in endless force and directly break through!
Of course, the most important point was that the mountain peak could possibly hide the secret to the Beiming Ancestor ascension to the Apotheosis realm. Even if they could only find a portion of it, it would be greatly beneficial.
Which cultivator in this world didn’t want to improve themselves? Hence, this was undoubtedly a great temptation.
However, Chu Liuyue still chose to find Jian Fengchi and Qiang Wanzhou without hesitation.
Mu Hongyu knew her the best. When they were in the academy in the past, they had once experienced life and death together, so she wasn’t surprised to see her friend make such a decision. She just nodded her head forcefully.
However, Yuwen Jinghong and Wu Ming were shocked.
If it were someone else, they might not be able to make such a choice. After all, Ancient Phoenix Mountain only opened once in a thousand years. Such a chance was indeed very rare, but… she still chose to do it! It was impossible to say that they weren’t touched.
However, Chu Liuyue didn’t seem to care about this much—it was as though she had only made a very ordinary choice.
Yuwen Jinghong and Wu Ming exchanged glances and saw the tumultuous emotions in each other’s eyes. But the two of them didn’t say anything as they fell silent in unison.
After resting for a while, Chu Liuyue stood up. “Tuan Zi!”
She heard the sound of wings vibrating. Tuan Zi rapidly returned to its original size from being petite.
Chu Liuyue jumped up first and called the other three to go up.
When the rest of them stood still on Tuan Zi’s back, Chu Liuyue gently patted Tuan Zi’s head. “Let’s go!”
Tuan Zi spread its wings and flew up, and they rapidly rushed forward!
The red figure sliced across midair like a burning line of fire quickly spreading toward the front!
After another hour, Chu Liuyue felt the special aura on the golden bell becoming more intense. She was stunned. We’re reaching soon!
She looked down from above and saw a strange gully in between two mountains—the two figures in the gully seemed rather familiar.
Her heart tingled.
Tuan Zi screamed, and it rapidly descended.
When they were about to reach the bottom, they suddenly felt an invisible resistance!
Tuan Zi’s speed clearly decreased!
“Leave quickly! This space is weird!” said Mu Hongyu suddenly.
Yuwen Jinghong and Wu Ming were dazed. “What’s weird?”
Mu Hongyu raised her hands and pointed below with a solemn expression. “This space seems to be disrupted by some force, and there’s some turbulence.”
“Turbulence?” Yuwen Jinghong took a closer look.
The mountains were high and low, and the peaks were pretty. The wind would blow over occasionally, and the trees would rustle with it.
“There doesn’t seem to be anything wrong…”
However, Chu Liuyue knitted her brows slightly and immediately said, “Tuan Zi, move back!”
Upon hearing this, Tuan Zi immediately flapped its wings and rapidly flew up!
Very quickly, that invisible resistance disappeared.
Tuan Zi circled the space above the gully.
Chu Liuyue confirmed something in her heart and looked at Mu Hongyu. “Hongyu, what do you mean that this space has turbulence?”
Mu Hongyu’s eyes widened. “Did none of you feel that the space here is different?”
A dark light flashed across Chu Liuyue’s eyes. I just vaguely felt that something was wrong, but my feeling wasn’t as accurate as Mu Hongyu’s.
Suddenly, her expression changed slightly. “You have a Faint Yuan Body, so your control over space is much better than an average person. That is probably why you can feel this.”
Mu Hongyu was dazed. “…Really?”
Ever since she knew she had a Faint Yuan Body, the most she knew about herself was that she could do instant transportation.
In her mind, the stronger she was, the further she could instantly move. However, she wasn’t clear about the rest.
If Chu Liuyue hadn’t pointed it out at this moment, she wouldn’t have discovered that she had this ability. All along, she thought that everyone was about the same.
“That’s right. It’s probably because your current abilities have been improved, so you’re more sensitive to space now. Hence, you can clearly feel the strangeness of that space.” Chu Liuyue nodded with certainty.
When the other two heard this, they suddenly understood and expressed their agreement.
Among the few of them, only Chu Liuyue and Mu Hongyu hadn’t broken through to become stage-seven warriors. However, Mu Hongyu’s talent and advantage in this area were clearly much better than the rest.
“Do you still feel anything? Tell us in detail,” said Chu Liuyue as she looked down, her expression turning stern.
When they went near it previously, she had already confirmed the duo’s identities. They had caused quite a big commotion when they flew down, so logically speaking, the two of them should’ve noticed it. But even until now, the two of them still hadn’t looked up.
This made Chu Liuyue more worried.
Upon hearing this, Mu Hongyu nodded and pointed at the gully below. “For example, the position we’re at is a stable portion of space. Like paper, it has been evenly dyed with one color, but below… It has different forces of space that keep intersecting and colliding. It’s like… the same piece of paper but dyed messily with all sorts of colors.”
She talked as she pointed at different positions. “That place is a piece of its own. Beside it, the two small spaces are squeezing each other. Even though a complete space is opposite it, it’s different from the rest…”
Even though Chu Liuyue and the rest couldn’t feel it like Mu Hongyu, they understood a thing or two from her description.
“This means that… a simple gully has at least six or seven waves of different space forces?” asked Yuwen Jinghong in surprise.
Mu Hongyu stroked her chin. “You can say that, but in actual fact, this is even more troublesome. As the different spaces will squeeze and compete with each other, the space here is even worse. If we just go in like this, it will definitely be very dangerous!”
“Then, Fengchi and the rest—”
The two of them were just below! At this point, they seemed to be sitting cross-legged on the ground with some distance between them. Nobody knew what they were doing.
“So it’s very urgent for them… If they’re trapped there, they can’t get out,” said Mu Hongyu as she looked at Chu Liuyue. “Liuyue, what do you think we should do next?”
Chu Liuyue stared at the scene below and fell into deep thought. Even though I can’t clearly feel all of this like Mu Hongyu, from the resistance we felt earlier, it’s indeed harder to deal with than we had expected. Being able to stop Tuan Zi is enough to prove how terrifying the intersecting force this space contains!
At this point, a shrill whistle sound was suddenly made!
Qiang Wanzhou blew the whistle Weichi Song gave them both back then! He was calling for help!
