“Brother, not many people know where the grave is. Brother Song just knows vaguely. When we arrive, we’ll have to look for it.”
Lin Feng, Ti Yuan, Qing Huang Tian and Zhuang Ling Yun were together. When Ti Yuan told Lin Feng that, Lin Feng decided to walk. Nobody could see where they were going so they walked through a forest.
Besides, Ao Ce’s grave wasn’t far from the center of Man Yu at all, only a few thousands of li. One hour sufficed to arrive.
“Doesn’t Ao Ce have descendants?” asked Lin Feng curiously. Who had built a grave for Ao Ce after his death? The descendants of Man Yu? Or Ao Ce’s direct descendants?
“Daddy, Ao Ce is like me. He could predict the future. He knew when he was going to die so he built his grave before his death. And shortly before dying, he went into his grave.” said Zhuang Ling Yun before Ti Yuan had time to speak.
Lin Feng glanced at Zhuang Ling Yun strangely. Nothing was clear about that kid. No wonder he was from Shen Hai Mo Lin.
Ti Yuan also looked at Ti Yuan strangely. He didn’t look like an ordinary child. He was extremely strange. Besides, Ti Yuan didn’t understand Zhuang Ling Yun. His intuition made him think Zhuang Ling Yun wasn’t evil though.
The forest was dense and it went uphill. A river flowed down the mountain. Once in a while, they heard the rumbling sounds of some waterfalls. When they arrived in the area where Ao Ce’s grave was supposed to be, they all sensed a peculiar Qi clearly.
Even though they were extremely near, the gloomy Qi was extremely thick and dense. Lin Feng suddenly felt like when he was in Demon corpse Valley. The gloomy Qi was also extremely thick and dense there. But the gloomy Qi there was much, much more powerful than Demon corpse Valley.
They walked under a waterfall and they saw a gigantic boulder sticking out of the river. It looked like someone’s hand. It seemed like it could collapse and grab the world anytime. Lin Feng remembered the Monkey King’s story.
Dozens of li around them, the forest was luxuriant. Most of it was emerald green but there were some purple and red colors too, red like blood. And not far from them, there was a field with grass and wild weeds, the whole field was purple red. Even the earth was purple red.
Lin Feng was sure it was where Ao Ce’s grave was. Regarding the location of the entrance, they had to look for it.
“Brother, I’ll check the east, no matter if you find something or not, we’ll meet there later.” said Ti Yuan. Then he flashed. He really wanted to go inside Ao Ce’s grave. He was curious. He had always dreamt of seeing it. He used to be convinced he may be able to make Man Yu come back to glorious times if he inspected it.
Of course, Ti Yuan now had a hero, an idol, Lin Feng. Because Lin Feng was the one who was had started making Man Yu rise again. And Man Yu would become as glorious as under Ao Ce’s reign thanks to Lin Feng.
“Daddy, I’ll go and check the southern area.” said Zhuang Ling Yun seriously. He didn’t look naughty at that moment. He seemed serious and anxious as he flashed.
“Husband, I’ll go and check the northern area.” said Qing Huang Tian. Even if she didn’t have many opportunities to show how strong she was when she was still in the Phoenix Clan, it didn’t mean she wasn’t.
If Lin Feng had had a real battle against The phoenix with the five feathers, he would have never won. She also had trump cards after all.
Lin Feng decided to check the west. He flashed unceasingly and inspected every single inch of the ground. The ground under his feet was purple and red. The grass wasn’t very tall. The ground was soft so footprints appeared behind Lin Feng.
As time passed, Lin Feng started having a bad feeling. How come there was such a soft field in Man Yu? There were no stones in the ground. It felt as if they had left Man Yu.
“Soft ground, strange place.”
said a voice suddenly. It was Zu Ti. Lin Feng hadn’t heard his voice for almost a year.
“Master? You leveled up?” asked Lin Feng excitedly. Even though he didn’t use the Sword of Remote Times that much anymore, he still respected Zu Ti.
“Yes. By good luck, I was able to level up. But I’m still far from being as strong as you.” said Zu Ti forcing a smile. He had given up on helping Lin Feng. Lin Feng didn’t need his help anymore.
“It’s alright. You’ll break through to the Godly Ancestor layer sooner or later, Master.”
“Don’t try to cheer me up. Focus on the grave. If I’m not mistaken, the grave is under your feet. If you don’t find the entrance, you can also use the godly battle sword to destroy the ground and enter the grave directly.” suggested Zu Ti.
Lin Feng shook his head without the least hesitation, “No need, Master. I respect the dead. What would be the difference between me and a robber if I did that? Entering his grave is already bad enough. I already feel like a robber. So I prefer doing things respectfully and politely.”
“Hehe, I knew you’d say that. Since it’s that way, do as you wish. I have no other suggestion.” said Zu Ti sighing. Then he stopped talking. Lin Feng knew the old man didn’t feel good. but he had to go through some difficult and rough times to progress. He had to strive for progress. Lin Feng also had to focus on his own cultivation. He had to become stronger and stronger. And he didn’t hope the people who had helped him in the past, like Zu Ti, would catch up with him.
It was a habit.
Lin Feng flashed around looking for an entrance. In the end, Lin Feng found a small hole, it was a big as a thumb, a weird smell emerged from it, it smelled like under the ground.
“I found it! Hahahaha!!!!!!! Daddy!!!!! I found an entrance!!!!!!!!”
“Husband, there’s an entrance in the northern area.”
“Brother, there is an entrance in the eastern area too, it must be an entrance!!!!!!!!!”
At the same time, Lin Feng heard three voices. Four entrances??
Qing Huang Tian stood in front of Lin Feng. They glanced at each other. They were both startled. There were several entrances? How was that possible?
“Four entrances? Which one is the real one then?” asked Ti Yuan annoyedly. He was initially happy but when he heard there were more than one entrances, he understood that it was probably a part of a plot Ao Ce had set up before dying.
“They may all be fake.” said Qing Huang Tian frowning. She looked worried. Suddenly, Zhuang Ling Yun looked at her, and then at Lin Feng. He waited for Lin Feng to take a decision.
Lin Feng didn’t know what to do. If there were only two entrances, it’d be easier, they would check one and see if it was the right one immediately, but four?
It meant three at least were fake. If they chose the wrong one, they may face dangers and die.
Ao Ce had almost broken through to the Earthly Godly Ancestor layer back in the days so his grave had to be terrifying. Lin Feng was reassured though because the ice spirit was in his spirit world. She was an Earthly Godly Ancestor, a real one, same as an overlord.
“What are the specificities of the entrance you’ve found?” asked Lin Feng cold-headedly.
“An acid smell emerges from mine.” said Zhuang Ling Yun forcing a smile.
“Mine is as big as a forearm and I can hear water flowing inside.” said Ti Yuan. He hoped Lin Feng would understand something.
“An ice-cold energy emerges from mine.” said Qing Huang Tian disgustedly. She was a phoenix after all. Phoenixes didn’t like cold.
“I understand, Ti Yuan, let’s choose yours. Enter.” said Lin Feng without the least hesitation.
Everybody obeyed Lin Feng. Zhuang Ling Yun walked first. They all heard water inside.
Lin Feng chose that place because where there was water, usually, things were better. And it was the eastern area was the biggest one so Ao Ce had probably chosen that one.
After a short time, the four people arrived in front of the entrance. Lin Feng looked at it, it was as big as a forearm. Lin Feng took out his godly battle sword, it flashed and the entrance exploded. It was now half a meter wide.
The sound of water was more and more distinct. Lin Feng was even more convinced it was the right entrance.
Ao Ce had tried to set up something to confuse people. Lin Feng was convinced his entrance contained poison, and that the entrance Zhuang Ling Yun had found contained some rotten corpses.
And he was convinced the entrance Qing Huang Tian had found was an air vent but they could enter through the air vent because it may change the atmosphere of the environment in the grave and Lin Feng would forgive himself if the others suffered from side damages because of him.
If he had come alone, it wouldn’t have mattered, but Zhuang Ling Yun was just a high-level Supreme God and Qing Huang Tian was a silly woman. He couldn’t take risks.
“Follow me.” said Lin Feng. Then he went inside. He suddenly felt cold and he lost control of his strength, he fell in the water and felt ice-cold.
Splash! Lin Feng looked at the waterside and went on the ground. He felt dizzy but it felt good and soft. He saw a cave in front of him too and there was a huge gravestone on which it was written: “LIN FENG IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAME!”.
The three people also landed in the water and when they walked aside, they were terrified.
“Poor skills. No wonder Lang Zhe was terrified.” Lin Feng grinned and ignored the weird gravestone.
