2227 Let’s Work Together

    At this moment, Duan Ling Tian had entered the ruin that was left behind by a Celestial-grade Saint Inscription Master. Huang Wen Jing who was known as the most beautiful woman and the number one prodigy among the younger generation in the Wandering Saint Palace had also entered the ruin.

    Duan Ling Tian remained silent when he saw Huang Wen Jing entering the ruin after him. He continued to walk silently in the underground passage.

    The ruin that was left by the Celestial-grade Saint Inscription Master was located underground, and to get to it, one had to walk through a long underground passage. The underground passage was filled with dangerous traps and was difficult to pass through unharmed.

    Duan Ling Tian saw numerous corpses strewn on the ground along the passage. Based on the bloodstain on the corpses, he deduced that they had only died recently.

    It seems like quite a number of people had come to explore this place. This passage must have quite a number of deadly traps using one-time attack Formations,' Duan Ling Tian thought to himself as he looked at the corpses that were killed in different ways.

    Duan Ling Tian continued to walk forward as Huang Wen Jing trailed after him.

    In the beginning, Huang Wen Jing looked at Duan Ling Tian disdainfully. Her eyes were filled with killing intent, and it was obvious she loathed him. However, as time went on, her impression of Duan Ling Tian changed considerably. Although her eyes were still cold, it was filled with curiosity as well. She was curious how this young man who did not look a day older than her was so strong. Moreover, he was so astute that he even managed to discover the subtle weakness in her attack in such a short time.

    There was a saying that went like this. 'When a woman starts to get curious about a man, she's also falling into the river of love.' However, it was not certain if this saying applied to Huang Wen Jing, the most beautiful woman in the Human- Devil clan.

    Initially, Duan Ling Tian had thought the passage would come to end soon, but as it turned out, he was too naive. He encountered 81 small passages that branched out in different directions. "There are so many of them?"

    The entries of these 81 passages were aligned neatly. That was how Duan Ling Tian was able to calculate the number of passages so quickly.

    Duan Ling Tian was stumped for a moment. "Which one should I choose?" In the end, he closed his eyes and extended his Divine Consciousness to see if he could gain any information.

    Huang Wen Jing stood quietly nearby and watched Duan Ling Tian, waiting for him to make his choice.

    Due to the commotion Duan Ling Tian had caused earlier, many people were still outside the stone forest. At this moment, only Duan Ling Tian and Huang Wen Jing were in the underground passage. Oddly enough, the silence lent a romantic atmosphere to the place.

    Initially, Duan Ling Tian did not hold high hopes of gleaning any information with his Divine Consciousness. If it was so easy, other people would have easily entered and looted all the treasures inside.

    Duan Ling Tian was just about to give up when he seemed to have discovered something. "Huh?" A scent that he was familiar with wafted out from one of the 81 underground passages. After a while, he managed to confirm the scent was similar to the scent of the fourth level of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda. It was the distinctive scent that permeated the space with the slower time flow. If one had not smelt the scent before, they would not notice it at all.

    Time distortion... Could it be there's a place where time is distorted like the fourth floor of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda at the end of the passage?' Duan Ling Tian's breathing quickened when he thought about this. Although it seemed as though he had come to terms with losing the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda, the truth was the loss of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda had affected him very much.

    Within the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda was Elder Huo whom he respected. Moreover, the time flow in there also helped with his cultivation.

    Naturally, Duan Ling Tian was excited when he scented the familiar smell. Without any hesitation, he followed the scent and entered one of the smaller passages.


    Duan Ling Tian only left a gust of wind in his wake as he disappeared before Huang Wen Jing's eyes. She blinked a few times, stunned. In the end, she decided to follow Duan Ling Tian and entered the passage he had went into as though he was her guide.

    In the future, when she thought about this moment, she realized how lucky she was to have made this decision. She would consider this to be one of the best decisions she made in her entire life!

    Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!

    After entering the passage, Duan Ling Tian encountered a one-time killing Formation. The killing Formation shot out javelins that seemed so sharp that they could pierce through anything. When he triggered the killing Formation, it seemed as though it had locked onto him as well.

    "The strength of this attack is comparable to a powerhouse at the Fourth Form of the Saint Celestial Stage!" Duan Ling Tian still had time to assess the power of the killing Formation as the rays from the javelin shot at him at a deadly speed.

    Naturally, this attack posed no threat to Duan Ling Tian. All he needed to do was cast the defensive Divine Ability, the Black Turtle's Barrier, to block the deadly rays from the javelin.

    However, as Duan Ling Tian went further into the passage, he discovered that the killing Formations were getting stronger and stronger. Initially, he could still easily fend off the attacks, but gradually, he had to exert more effort to block the attacks. Finally, he saw a light at the end of the tunnel a short distance away and came to a halt.

    I had to use all my strength to deal with all the killing Formations thus far... The next level is definitely going to be extremely tough...' A grim expression appeared on Duan Ling Tian's face when he thought about this.

    Based on what Duan Ling Tian had gone through earlier, he knew that once the killing Formations were triggered, there was no escaping it. If he could not deal with the attack, he would certainly die. He had to proceed with caution. If he was not completely confident, he would not simply proceed ahead.

    Currently, he had exhausted all his strength. Even if he could restore his body to its full strength, he was not completely confident he could make it through the next trap unless his cultivation base made a sudden breakthrough to the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage!

    While Duan Ling Tian was mulling over this, a cold but sweet as an oriole's voice rang by his ears. "Let's work together."

    The owner of the voice was none other than the most beautiful woman in the Human-Devil clan, Huang Wen Jing, who had been following Duan Ling Tian.

    Duan Ling Tian had noticed since earlier that Huang Wen Jing had been trailing him, but he did not bother with her. However, he was surprised by her suggestion to join forces. He had injured her earlier when they fought earlier, why was she being so helpful and forgiving now?

    "Although you're stronger than me, it won't be easy for you to pass the next trap," Huang Wen Jing said. When she saw Duan Ling Tian had remained quiet, she continued to say, "If we join forces, I'm certain it'll be easy for us to deal with the upcoming trap!"

    "Hmm, you're right." At this time, Duan Ling Tian finally regained his senses and nodded. He turned to look at Huang Wen Jing and asked lightly, "However, if we join forces... How should we divide the treasures we find at the end of the passage?"

    "We'll each take what we need." Huang Wen Jing seemed to have anticipated this question from Duan Ling Tian since she instantly answered him without even thinking about it.

    "What if the item is something both of us need?" Duan Ling Tian asked with narrowed eyes.

    "If it's something that both of us need, you'll have the claim to the item," Huang Wen Jing said without any hesitation.

    It must be said that Huang Wen Jing's words were enough to prove her sincerity. Apart from that, it was truly difficult for Duan Ling Tian to pass the last trap alone unless he had a sudden breakthrough to the Seventh Form of the Saint Celestial Stage. That was, naturally, unlikely to happen in such a short time. If he had waited until he had broken through to the next level, all the treasures would be taken away by other people at that time.

    After considering all his options, Duan Ling Tian finally agreed to work with Huang Wen Jing to deal with the last trap. "Alright then!"

    With such high-level attacks, I wonder what kind of treasure will we find at the end of the passage. Moreover, the scent is really similar to the fourth floor of the Seven Treasures Exquisite Pagoda. This scent seems exclusive to time distortion.' Duan Ling Tian's heart was filled with expectations. He glanced at Huang Wen Jing and said, "Let's go!"

    Huang Wen Jing nodded silently. Both of them instantly moved like a bolt of lightning as they continued ahead to face the last trap.

    The final killing Formation was instantly triggered as they moved forward.

    Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!

    Suddenly, a surge of powerful force like the waves of a stormy sea suddenly appeared in front of the passage that Duan Ling Tian and Huang Wen Jing were standing in front of. The approaching force was accompanied by thunderous noises.

    The force was immensely powerful and terrifying. As soon as they made contact with the walls of the passage, the passage began to quake violently.

    Duan Ling Tian and Huang Wen Jing seemed extremely vulnerable like a small lonely boat in the middle of a tempestuous sea.

    Duan Ling Tian's eyes were cold as he suddenly cried out, "Let's attack together!" His loud voice echoed endlessly in the underground passage.
