    "So that explains it, that's why you carry his essence."

    The stone dragon came to a sudden enlightenment. "I've been locked away here for almost a thousand years. The members of the Secret Order have always tried to subdue me but I would never do anything for them! Hence, they had shut me away in this training pagoda. However, the ones who usually come to the fifth level of this training pagoda are criminals of the Secret Order! The fifth level has been considered as the punishment realm! I never thought that anyone outside of the Secret Order would be here who are also acquainted with the ancestor of my dragon clan too."

    The stone dragon sat himself on the ground and no longer emitted his ferocious air. Instead, he began to treat Gu Ruoyun like family.

    "By the way, little girl, did the dragon clan's ancestor say anything else to you?"

    Gu Ruoyun fell silent and shook her head, "Aside from asking me to take care of the dragon clan, there was nothing else."

    The stone dragon looked a little hurt when he heard this. He was considered to have been from the same generation as the dragon clan ancestor but he never thought that one of them would end up dead and the other captured. Hence, two of the greatest powerhouses of the dragon clan have left.

    He has no idea what became of the dragon clan after they had left.

    "Little girl, since the ancestor has instructed you to do this, there must be something about you that impressed him. How about this, I'll let you leave this place as long as you can promise me one thing."

    Before Gu Ruoyun could answer, Chu Luo answered excitedly, "What do you want us to do?"

    In her opinion, nothing was more important than leaving this place right now.

    "I'd like to ask you to pay the dragon clan a visit after you leave," The stone dragon's voice was full of bitterness. "Previously, when the ancestor had disappeared, he had left instructions for me to protect the dragon clan. Unfortunately, I was captured by humans several thousand years ago which cost me my freedom. I don't know what things are like in the dragon clan now so I'd like to ask for you to help me look in on my descendants. If you can promise me this, I will let you leave this place immediately."

    Gu Ruoyun thought for a moment. "I'll make my way to the dragon clan once I've finished this competition."

    "Alright."

    After receiving Gu Ruoyun's gurantee, the stone dragon finally flashed a satisfied smile.

    "You may leave now."

    Gu Ruoyun looked at the stone dragon and asked, "Why don't you leave this place?"

    She was puzzled, they could walk out of this place so why has this stone dragon remained locked in here for more than a thousand years, unable to leave?

    Hearing this, the stone dragon laughed bitterly once again, "These chains on my body restrict my freedom and prevents me from leaving with you! Besides, the Secret Order has another reason for locking me in here."

    "What's that?"

    "It's so that I can guard a powerful cultivator in here! That powerful cultivator has been in here longer than me. That's more than almost ten thousand years now. Besides, there is a seal on the area where he resides so he cannot walk around freely in the fifth level like I can. Little girl, once you leave, you must remember your promise."

    "Don't worry, I'll make a trip to the dragon clan."

    Gu Ruoyun gently nodded before she turned around to the group next to her, "Let's go, time is almost up. If we don't leave now, they'll probably conclude that we've failed!"

    "Yes, Master."

    Chu Luo and Zi Yun joined their fists and followed behind Gu Ruoyun with reverence.

    Their figures then quickly disappeared under the blood-red sky...
