Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 581
The Finger Bone
Jiang Chen and Big Yellow were very fast. In one day, they had already passed through three big domains and arrived in Pure Land. This land wasn’t as big as the other eight major domains, but this was the most precious land in the Divine Continent.
The energy in the heaven and earth on this land was ten times more exuberant than Mysterious City. An abundance of energy can be found everywhere on this land. There was no deserted mountains in this area, every life on the mountains was living vibrantly, but this was also the place where the scariest and powerful race live. In addition, the supreme Demon Race also live here.
“This is an excellent environment for training.” Big Yellow couldn’t help praising this land.
“This is a place where countless of cultivators go to, but their survival in this area is hard to estimate, we have to keep our profile low. We will head to the Saint Cliff directly, we can’t afford to make any trouble here.” Jiang Chen warned Big Yellow as this dog was always irrational, trying to offend people everywhere he go to.
This place wasn’t comparable to Liang Province, not even Mysterious City. It would be worthless and would only cause death if any cultivator here was slightly offended. Without any reliable backups, it was impossible to survive here.
“Roger that.” Big Yellow said ignorantly, but he knew that Jiang Chen’s warning wasn’t causing him unnecessary anxiety. He was well aware that this was a place where a lot of great cultivators come to; they could not protect themselves if they fight with any of the people here.
Jiang Chen was very familiar with Saint Cliff and Pure Land. In the past, every place here had his footprint and shadow. In addition, he had left an eternal fame; no one wasn’t frightened when they heard the name of ‘Jiang Chen’.
The sentimental values on this land caused Jiang Chen to sigh; he realised that he wasn’t the previous Greatest Saint like before when he made his first step on Pure Land.
They were rushing to the Saint Cliff at maximum speed without talking. Their current speed allowed them to get to the place easily as if an effort of brewing a cup of tea.
The nearer they go to the Saint Cliff, the harder it was for Jiang Chen to calm himself down. He could feel the rustling of the sinister wind when they arrived within a hundred miles range of the area. This feeling wasn’t the same as the one he had before, this land was called the ‘Holy Land’.
As they approach nearer, they were rather surprised: the sky above the cliff was mingled with evil energy and black fog. It was hard to see the original shape of the cliff. It was like what Big Yellow said, the Saint Cliff now had become a prohibited land, desolated and inhabited.
If there was an abandoned zone, that would be no doubt the Saint Cliff that was once prosperous.
“Kid, are you sure that you can find the treasure that will help you in training in this kind of place? If you want to find the treasures left by the Greatest Saint, I suggest you to give up. I heard that the Greatest Saint was killed by an Immortal, and almost nothing was left of himself. There isn’t anything left here. Even if there was, a hundred years have passed and who knows how many times this place was being searched for treasures. I am afraid that not even a hair of the him was left.” said Big Yellow.
“What do you know? Let’s go into the Saint Cliff and we will know, but the evil energy here was very intense, you have to be careful,” reminded Jiang Chen since even an ordinary cultivator would find it difficult to approach the place with this much evil energy.
“Don’t worry, I will not be frightened by the evil energy, even if I absorb these energy into my body, it is just tonics to me.” Big Yellow said confidently.
Jiang Chen made his first attempt to move forward. He jumped into the Saint Cliff from the air. Everything here was destroyed, it was beyond recognition. Perhaps it could be explained that his war with the Immortals here was destructive. Almost all of the whole Saint Cliff was destroyed, creating a land of desolation. An intense evil energy was accumulated over the a hundred of years.
Big Yellow didn’t hear it wrong. At the time the Greatest Saint was defeated, nothing was left, nothing at all except… he hid something during his last breathe in a spatial zone. There was something valuable inside of it. He was confident that no one could find it. Even a Great Saint who could destroy the entire Saint Cliff would still find nothing.
He originally did not want come all the way here to retrieve his hidden treasure. He wanted to wait until his power reached a certain level before he return here. His spatial zone was special. The spatial zone merge itself completely with the spatial zone of the Divine Continent. Any ordinary cultivator would not be able to enter this zone. However, attempting to unlock the treasure that was left by the Greatest Saint would bring attention to formidable Great Saints of this land, attracting them to come here and creating a wave of aggression in the Divine Continent.
This trip costed Jiang Chen a long journey, he would not unlock the treasure in the spatial zone directly. He had to use a different way that would not let anyone notice while getting the treasure that he needed. That was the reason he brought Big Yellow with him as he was proficient in a vast array of holy book, he could help Jiang Chen a lot.
A layer of golden shield appeared on the surface of Jiang Chen and Big Yellow's bodies. The cold and evil energy disappeared instantly once they touched the shield or being blocked by it. The blood and energy within their bodies were extraordinary. Any powerful evil energy could not affect them in the slightest.
Jiang Chen was leading the way towards the direction to the bottom of the Saint Cliff. He had built a firm spatial zone which would always remain as it is. The zone was shielded by the barrier of Saint Origin World reaching an overlapping effect. In order to obtain the treasure, they needed the location of the spatial zone.
Jiang Chen saw a ten feet tall giant boulder. It had already been corroded by the evil energy, and a single touch would cause it to crack. This giant boulder was in fact the hill he slashed 100 years ago, that was one of the evidence of his glory.
“What is this?” Big Yellow ’s eyes sparkled when he saw a seven-colored shield.
“How could it possible that another layer of shield was created?” Jiang Chen frowned.
“Let me try to break it.” After Big Yellow finished his sentence, he used his head to hit the shield.
Big Yellow’s head was extremely hard, but this impulsive force reflected him away from the shield. He stood up on his feet with difficulty, trying to shake the dizziness in his head. He was unable to explain the feeling he had.
“This shield is definitely hard!”
Big Yellow was shocked, as well as Jiang Chen. He knew exactly how hard his friend’s head was. In this period of time, his friend had fought many battles, even if he wasn’t able to beat the opponent down with his head, his hard head never once felt dizzy.
“Damn! I don’t believe that I could not break even a shield.” Big Yellow said with disappointment, he bit his teeth and the dragon horns on his head started to release some kind of radiance.
“Stop Big Yellow!” Jiang Chen shouted immediately. He then used the Great Soul Derivation Technique; spiritual energy penetrated and transferred into the seven-colored shield. He felt that this shield was extraordinarily odd, it contained supreme energy, creating urges for people to pray for it. It wasn’t like the shield that was found in this world, it had to come from the outside world.
“What did you sense?” asked Big Yellow curiously.
“If my guess is not wrong, this is a holy shield. That time after the Greatest Saint broke the gate of the Immortal World, a holy shield like this fell into the Saint Cliff, separating the cliff and the real world. The situation inside was completely cut off. Even with the power of a Great Saint, they will never enter this cliff without going past this shield, so it is totally pointless to break the shield with force. Not only the shield will not be broken if we do this, it will attract masters to this place.”
Jiang Chen made a calculation on this holy shield while his eyes frowned tightly. If he could not pass through this barrier, his plan would go in vain. If he could not use his Spatial Shift to retrieve the treasure, he would not get it. Without the treasure, he would not be able to improve his power level; his trip to this place would be totally a waste.
“If we can’t go in there, we will have to search outside of it, and see whether we can find the treasure. But this will depend on our luck. However, I think everything that was good here had already been taken away,” said Big Yellow.
“This is the only possible way.” Jiang Chen shook his head. He knew clearly in his heart that nothing could be found here, not even a hair.
A human and a dog were searching for their rewards everywhere around them. After they had searched for ten minutes, Big Yellow’s eyes sparkled, “I could feel a treasure.”
“Where is it?”
Jiang Chen’s eyes brightened immediately. When Big Yellow could sense a treasure, it wasn’t an ordinary item. After his voice dropped, he saw Big Yellow sped towards a specific direction. Jiang Chen quickly followed him. Very quickly, they came to the front of a big boulder. This boulder was only one feet tall standing upright, it had the shape of a finger as if it was inserted into the land. By just seeing from outside, this boulder was no different than the others, it was also corroded by evil energy.
Seeing this rock, Jiang Chen felt an inexplicable sense of familiarity. His spirit was also shaken, sending a jolt down his spine, as if there was something related to his blood. Even without the reminder of Big Yellow, he could already sense the existence of the treasure hidden in this rock.
“The treasure is just inside this boulder, I have to break it.” The moment just after Big Yellow finished his sentence, Jiang Chen’s fist had already smashed into the boulder, cracking the surface of it. At this time, a shining radiance rushed out of the narrow openings. As the pieces of the rocks were crumbling, a very shiny radiance flashed out in an instant, all of the evil energy surrounding the area was expelled immediately.
That was a piece of bone, a human bone from the finger of a person. The surface of the bone was shining with bright light, releasing golden beams of strong energy. After 100 years, the bone was left and hidden in a perfect way. This was a miracle, judging by the force unleashed by this bone, the owner of it had to be the Great Saint. It was, in fact, the bone of the Greatest Saint. This treasure was extremely rare!
