193 – Stupa city collapses
Chapter 193: Stupa City collapses!
Deep in the mountains, at the shore of the cold lake.
Qiandu stared unblinkingly at the surface of the lake, while Lin Canghai stood beside her, saying quietly: “They’ve still not come up yet. Most likely there is no chance of them coming up—”
“We have searched the bottom of the lake, yet saw no signs of Li Muyang. Even though we killed the Three-eyed Ice Toad——we did not see Li Muyang’s body inside. I feel there is a greater mystery——” Qiandu said reluctantly.
“The cold lake is unfathomable, countless dangerous currents, and there are many underwater cracks and caverns. We could only conduct a superficial search——Would that Three-eyed Ice Toad havedigested Li Muyang already? After all, such a huge monster, its digestion ability must be extremely strong——Besides, wouldn’t there be other animals that might eat him too? After they ate Li Muyang, it’s not impossible for them to hide in a place where no one can find them——”
“I believe he’s still alive.” Qiandu said in a low voice.
“I hope so.” Lin Canghai replied in a helpless tone. He did not want to believe that Li Muyang had died, but was not too optimistic about the situation right now. How long can an ordinary person stay at the bottom of the lake? How long can they stay at the bottom of the lake?
Although he was unaware of Li Muyang’s current cultivation state, but it’s impossible for him to be better than him and Qiandu.
Even he and sister Wang could not hold on for too long, how long could Li Muyang stay in that lake for? Even if he was not killed by the ugly Three-eyed Ice toad, he would have ran out of breath or frozen to death in the ice water.
“I also believe Qiji is still alive.” Chu Xun said, clasping his sword, his red eyes scanning the surface of the cold lake. As though he might jump in at any time.
“Chu Xun, where did you go?” Why didn’t we see you at the bottom of the lake?” Lin Canghai asked.
“The lake is so vast, the bottom is completely dark, how would you know where I was?” Chu Xun grunted coldly.
Lin Canghai also felt he thought too much. He had witnessed Chu Xun’s feelings forLu Qiji before. He apologetically explained: “You’re right. I didn’t mean anything, I just thought we should work together——”
Chu Xun swept a glance over Qiandu and Lin Canghai, his attitude finally changed, saying in a low voice: “Thank you.”
“We did what’s right.” Qiandu said.
The water splashed in all directions.
A white figure propelled up and out of the cold lake, creating great huge waves.
“Qiji——” Chu Xun immediately yelled. He flew into the air, rushing to hug Lu Qiji, and exclaimed in delight: “Qiji, you’re alive. You’re not dead——Good. Good. It really is great——”
Lu Qiji cast a glance at Chu Xun and said without the slightest emotion: “I’m fine.”
“I’m glad you’re okay. I was scared to death, I thought you were——”
“Let go.” Lu Qiji said aloud.
Her soaked clothes stuck to her body, highlighted her curves. Chu Xun’s hug made her very uncomfortable.
Lu Qiji descended to the ground, Chu Xun also followed.
Qiandu and Lin Canghai also rushed over. Qiandu looked at Lu Qiji and asked urgently: “Where is Li Muyang?”
“Li Muyang?” Lu Qiji was momentarily in a trance, then she shook her head from side to side as she replied: “I have not seen him.”
“What? You’ve not seen Li Muyang?” Lin Canghai was deeply worried, anxiously said: “Then where did Li Muyang go? He’s not——really dead?” ——
“This is ‘The art of traveling through clouds and summoning rain,’. I wish you will quickly comprehend it and not fall behind the clan members—–”
“From today onwards, you’re the new king of the dragon clan. I hope you will inherit great achievements, restore the dragon clan, make a lasting contribution, bring prosperity to the dragon clan——”
“Kill him——kill him, kill these monsters——”
Li Muyang simply felt he had a long dream.
In his mind emerged countless images, people, as well as a variety of sacred characters, sword technique and mnemonic chant, which rotated rapidly, like a path of light and shadow flashing across, like landslide and flood surging forth——But when he reached out to touch them, the information ‘exploded’ with a loud thud and dazzling golden light, and then his mind went completely blank.
At the end of the golden light was a girl dressed in white.
Li Muyang could see her waist, soft like spring breeze, her cheerful steps like the stamping of a deer, the most gorgeous satin jet-black long hair, and her eyes as bright as the sky——
She leisurely skipped toward Li Muyang, a smile on her face that can make spring flowers bloom and spring water ripple.
She did not come near, instead stood in front of Li Muyang in a not far place, smiling at him. 她
For some reason, in the split second he caught sight of her smiling face, all his confusion and worry on his mind ‘whooshed’ away, disappearing without a trace.
He looked back at her, delight sparkled in his eyes and his lips curved into a wide smile.
She opened her mouth and tried to say something to Li Muyang.
But no sound came forth.
Li Muyang could see her mouth moving, but not hear her voice.
He could not hear what she was saying.
“What did you say?” Anxious, Li Muyang asked aloud.
The woman was still trying to say something, something that Li Muyang could not hear.
When she noticed Li Muyang’s anxious face, she let out a gentle sigh and looked at Li Muyang deeply, before she turned around and walked toward the light.
Li Muyang anxiously shouted the woman’s name. He chased after her and tried to grab her wrist.
He did not know who she was, but he knew she must be very important to him. Otherwise, why would he be so sad when she turned away?
However, the woman’s figure already vanished at the edge of the golden light.
“Xinyue——” Li Muyang yelled desperately.
Li Muyang jolted awake from his slumbering state.
With one shake of his head, he sent water everywhere from his dripping wet hair, while blood constantly trickled down onto the top of his head.
At this very moment, he was immersed in the pool of dragon blood. His lower body was submerged in the crimson red blood, his upper body was fair and delicate, like pure snow, white stone, or the most valuable porcelain in the palace. If anyone called him by his ‘charcoal’ nickname again, they will be laughed at.
Where is Li Muyang’s previous charcoal image?
His aura was bitingly cold, overbearing, his facial features cuts like a knife and axe. As he scanned around, he possessed an air of superiority like a true king.
His eyes also changed; before Li Muyang’s eyes were simple and pure, exhibited the joy and sadness of youngsters.
Now, his eyes were pitch-black and deep like the bottomless cold lake, a depth of ever-ending darkness. His gaze, looked as if he had experience thousands of years.
He had shed his mortal body and changed his bones!
Li Muyang can be described as completely reborn.
The teenager, crawling up from the pool of dragon blood, was now the new king of the dragon clan.
Stir up storm and contend against the strongest of the Starry Sky, he is the most powerful king in the world.
The water was calm and warm, not the boiling and thundering state as before. As though their grievances and rage had suddenly disappeared.
They lightly brushed up red ripples, gently stroked the new king’s body.
They felt a familiar presence from Li Muyang’s body, which is the hope of relieving their inner demons and grievances.
“This is Dragon Slaying Canyon——” Li Muyang muttered. “Where’s Lu Qiji?”
Li Muyang moved lightly, and his body abruptly soared high into the air.
He soared above the canyon, overlooking the landscape and everything of Dragon Slaying Canyon.
The mighty and tall deity statues, which looked like a giant sword inserted in the giant dragon on the Beheading Dragon Platform, the huge stone table above the Beheading Dragon Platform and the giant old axe, which Li Muyang triggered The Curse of Subduing the Dragon——
They’re still here.
But the giant skull, bound by more than ten iron chains, was gone.
And the dragon bones in the distance, which piled together like rubbish, all disappeared. 還有遠
Recalling when he was trapped by the Curse of Subduing the Dragon and how they used their last wisp of spirit to attack and finally resulted to their soul scattering away——
Li Muyang’s heart throbbed endlessly with pain.
Li Muyang flashed out his fist.
A deity statue broke into two, the huge body cut into two at the waist, rumbling down in the direction of the pool of dragon blood.
The other deity statues also reacted, began to crack, break apart and shatter into pieces, until their body tumbled into the pool of dragon blood.
Heaven falling and earth cracking, rocks tumbled down.
The entire Dragon Slaying Canyon immediately shook, cracks forming beneath the dragon blood pool, and large quantity of dragon blood gushed toward the crevices.
“Vile human beings.” Li Muyang menacingly said.
He realised that, after the strong people set up the Curse of Subduing the Dragon, they set aside a contingency plan. If a dragon was still alive and not crushed to death, it would naturally strike at those deity statues, which would trigger the sky to fall and earth to crack, thereby shattering and destroying the entire Dragon Slaying Canyon——
They planned to bury Dragon Slaying Canyon so that it will never be able to see light again and never be known to anyone.
They needed to hide this secret forever.
The dragon clan, they will forever be the root of all evil——
Li Muyang scurried among tumbling rocks, evading rocks after rocks. And then, fled toward the narrow stone path——
He knew this was his only route of escape.
Unfortunately, Li Muyang was too naive.
As he escaped, the entire Stupa City shook and shift, chunks of lapis lazuli and white marble crashing to the ground——
Stupa City also began to collapse and fall apart, sinking in a flash.
