Chapter 243

Uh… No, it’s not the time to think about this now. The most important thing would be to think of how to save himself.

After passing through the white light and the purple light, Aurora was covered with a thick layer of white and purple breath of sword, and with this breath, the aurora quickly penetrated Xu Ziyan’s calf.

Xu Ziyan was startled. He didn’t expect Aurora to do such a thing. Not only did it not hurt at all, but the paralyzing feeling gradually faded away, and he even regained control of his spiritual power.

Pa!

The drop of flesh that should have been attached to Xu Ziyan was carried down by Aurora. The breath of sword intertwined with the white light and the purple awns, piercing all the holes in that drop of meat pulp, which completely vanished into ashes.

Xu Ziyan watched with lingering fear at the scorched blackness that was only the size of a finger not far away on the ground, and the fear in his heart had not completely faded away.

But a small drop almost killed him. If there were more of these monsters in the maze, almost 100 elites in the Xuan Yu realm would all be killed.

“Be careful of that monster attacking again.” Xu Ziyan dared not to relax. He hurriedly reminded everyone to pay attention.

“The monster ran away.” Le Hu just realized that the monster had disappeared without a trace.

Everyone looked at each other, including Xu Ziyan who’s breathing a sigh of relief.

Xu Zirong hugged his brother tightly and didn’t let go, as if he was afraid that he would be taken away at any moment.

“Look at me, I’m fine, aren’t I?” Xu Ziyan patted his brother’s head and tried to soothe him.

It’s a pity that Xu Zirong didn’t accept it at all. He held Xu Ziyan even more tightly, as if he wanted to integrate Xu Ziyan’s whole body into his.

Xu Ziyan felt helpless, knowing that what happened just now really scared Xu Zirong. He originally thought that his life would be guaranteed after he had become a golden core cultivator. However, there’s such unpredicted danger in the secret realm. He understood that he really had to continue cultivating if he wanted his life to be smooth…

“Brother, don’t push me away next time.” Xu Zirong bit Xu Ziyan’s ear and said.

Xu Ziyan turned his face away with a serious look, “what could I do if I didn’t push you away? Die together? Idiot!” He knocked on Xu Zirong’s head, “of course you have to save me if I’m in danger, but you can’t force it if it’s out of your ability. You should live well and take revenge for me instead. If you die with me, our enemy will only be thrilled out there. I am sure you won’t do stupid things like this.”

Xu Zirong lowered his head and remained silent, making Xu Ziyan having a headache.

In fact, he didn’t want to say such depressing words, but the world of self-cultivation was indeed too dangerous. They might die at any moment if they weren’t careful enough.

He might be very pleased when he got the Heart grass powder and the spiritual weapon a few days ago and that he was shining as the male protagonist, but he’d completely abandoned this thought now…

He’s the male protagonist who almost gave his life away. If little Greenie and the snail didn’t help him this time, he would have become part of the fleshy pulp.

Such a disgusting way to die…he had goosebumps just by thinking about it.

“Okay, okay, let’s not talk about it now. Shouldn’t we discuss what we should now instead?” Xu Ziyan rubbed his forehead.

Wei Qing said worriedly, “I just saw the faces of disciples of Liu Guang sect on that fleshy pulp monster.”

“What?” Xu Ziyan was horrified.

“He was one of the disciples that came to the maze with us. He even greeted me before coming in.” Wei Qing slightly turned away his face. Although he wasn’t familiar with that junior brother, they belonged to the same sect. Someone who once chatted and joked with him already became part of the monster, which couldn’t be more terrifying.

“In other words, this monster has attacked many people before us.” Xu Ziyan frowned.

So far, they had stayed in this True Dragon maze for many days, but they hadn’t seen a single person yet. It might be because of the huge size of the maze and several hundreds of people were scattered inside.

Now there was a monster like this in the maze, so other people would have encountered danger already…

These four people weren’t stupid, and according to what Wei Qing and Xu Ziyan had said, they speculated similar results.

Everyone looked extremely worried. They could still deal with the previous changes of monsters, but this fleshy pulp monster indeed threatened their lives.

“What should I do?” Le Hu looked at Xu Ziyan and at Wei Qing.

The two looked at each other and said in unison, “let’s just give up.”

As soon as these words came out, the two breathed a sigh of relief at the same time, as if they were scared of being rejected.

“You see, the things that have appeared here are beyond our control. I would rather give up on this competition and report the matter to our master.” Wei Qing looked solemn. Perhaps the whole-realm competition was a great opportunity to show his strength, his family’s safety was far more important.

The True Dragon maze controlled by the Wei family had undergone such abnormal changes, and he had to report it as soon as possible. Otherwise…

When he was thinking about the “ability” of the monster just now, he couldn’t help but feel even more worried.

Such a monster was created in the True Dragon maze, so what kinds of secrets were hidden in the maze? Could the soul furnace be related to it as well?

All kinds of complicated thoughts came and went in Wei Qing’s mind. He felt that his head ached and he rubbed his forehead.

If the news he brought out was made public, it might attract something unwanted. As the future head of the Wei family, Wei Qing had to consider it more thoroughly.

His shoulders sank suddenly, and Wei Qing turned his head in surprise.

Le Hu looked at him blankly, “there will always be a solution.” After saying so, he walked faster and left Wei Qing behind.

Wei Qing looked at the red ears of Le Hu and suddenly thought that things might not be as bad as he perceived.

It’s a pity that his good mood only remained until he realized that there was a problem with the teleportation array.

When he thought that he had to enter the passage where the exit was through the teleportation array, he was surprised to find that he had been teleported to an unfamiliar hall.

It was a huge hall, even larger than the one on the main peak of the Liu Guang sect.

Wei Qing had never heard of a similar place in the True Dragon maze, so he was very careful and he checked all directions vigilantly.

At this glance, he could see a bit of doorway. The dome of the hall was very high, and it was inlaid with hundreds of fist-sized night pearls, illuminating the entire hall.

Eighteen coiled dragon pillars stood in the hall, and each pillar seemed to have a lifelike real dragon entrenched there.

Wei Qing felt a little in panic. There seemed to be some unknown reason, but he always felt that the eyes on the coiled dragon columns seemed to be staring at him. When he took a closer look, he realized that it was a stone sculpture.

Since the development of the situation was somewhat uncontrollable, Wei Qing did not act recklessly. He just obediently waited beside the teleportation array, waiting for the other people.

After a few moments, Xu Ziyan and the others were also teleported through the array. As soon as they opened their eyes, they all realized that something was wrong. After all, there was still a big difference between the exit passage and the majestic hall…

“What is this place?” Xu Ziyan looked at Wei Qing suspiciously.

Wei Qing spread his hands helplessly, “I don’t know either. I only know that we might not be able to get out…”

Xu Ziyan was suddenly dumbfounded. The teleportation array that originally led to the exit had teleported them to this damn place. Do they need further explanation?

“It smells of blood.” Xu Zirong narrowed his eyes slightly, and a few tiny blood vines swayed gently behind him, staring at the other direction of the hall.

The hall became instantly audible, and Xu Ziyan, Wei Qing and the others were immediately alert, watching the direction the blood vine was facing.

“You have such a good sense of small.” A clear and pleasant female voice came from the other side of the hall, and everyone immediately followed the direction of it. They saw a soft mist drifting by, and a woman dressed in black with blood on her shoulders walked over slowly.

After she came out of the shadows completely, everyone took a deep breath. Even Xu Ziyan couldn’t help but look back at Xu Zirong in horror.

The woman had a beautiful face, delicate appearance, and a pair of breathtakingly beautiful eyes. She’s a great beauty no matter what standard was used. What’s more shocking was that – her face looked exactly the same as that of Xu Zirong!

“How is that possible?” Wei Qing and Le Hu couldn’t help saying so at the same time, almost confirming that there’s some kind of relationship between Xu Zirong and the woman.

Xu Ziyan frowned tightly. Of course he knew that Xu Zirong didn’t have any siblings, but it couldn’t be coincidence that a man and a woman had the exactly same face.

The moment Xu Zirong saw the woman, his facial expression instantly changed. When everyone exclaimed in surprise, he shot three thick blood vines to the woman.

Wei Qing and Le Hu still couldn’t react. However, since Xu Ziyan had cooperated with Zirong for a long time, he already took action before even thinking.

“Ah!” The woman exclaimed, and with a wave of the long gauze in her hand, she stopped the blood vine’s attack, but Xu Ziyan’s spiritual thunder arrow pierced through her shoulder.

“Stop!” The woman shouted, looking at Xu Zirong with sadness and indignation. “I didn’t mean to attack you.”

Xu Zirong looked at her coldly, “change your face if you don’t want to die, don’t try to disturb us with such a method. Also, take away the thing on your wrist and don’t try to deceive me. I don’t mind killing you if you dare to act first.”

The woman bit her lower lip, feeling aggrieved. She looked at the four guys in front of her with a sad face, as if she was accusing them of not knowing how to be pitiful to a woman.

Wei Qing and Le Hu both thought that it’s creepy. They could no longer describe it as “horrifying” after being stared by a woman looking exactly the same as Xu Zirong…
