Money was extremely depressed after losing the horn. He moved around at a rapid speed, trying to find Xiang Shaoyun as quickly as possible. Instead of finding Xiang Shaoyun, he found Tang Longfei dying. He was greatly alarmed and hurriedly dragged him out of the dilapidated palace.
He then spat out some silver lightning liquid and fed it to Tang Longfei, effectively saving Tang Longfei’s life. The silver lightning liquid was a liquid of extreme yang. Not only could it heal injuries, but it could also expel evil and poison. Thus, Tang Longfei’s condition stabilized.
“Thank you, Money,” said Tang Longfei weakly.
“Don’t worry about it. You’re my boss’s brother, so you’re my brother as well. Focus on recovering,” said Money.
Tang Longfei stopped talking. He sat up and circulated his energy to continue healing. He also took out some of the treasures he had been h.o.a.rding and used them to expel the death aura from his body. If he allowed the death aura to remain, his future in cultivation would become bleak.
He was, after all, the son of a Bloodsin City governor. His father had naturally given him some life-preserving treasures.
Meanwhile, Ouyang Chuanqi, like the other disciples, started exploring the damaged palaces for treasures after he was freed from the illusory formation.
Ouyang Chuanqi and some other disciples found a broken cauldron in one of the palaces. Initially, n.o.body paid the cauldron any attention. But when Ouyang Chuanqi inserted some flame energy into it, the cauldron started s.h.i.+ning with an indescribable radiance. A clump of flame burst out of it, forming a unique flame that was much more powerful than what he had inserted.
When the other disciples noticed, one of them exclaimed in alarm, “This cauldron is not fully damaged!”
The moment the voice rang out, a group of people charged at Ouyang Chuanqi, aiming for the cauldron. Ouyang Chuanqi was a ninth-stage Dragon Ascension Realm cultivator. His combat strength was valiant, and he unleashed the might of his fiery spear against his opponents.
Ouyang Chuanqi was a prodigy of the Dragon Phoenix Academy, and he stood at the very peak of the pyramid even among the four academies. Not many disciples could face him, but that did not mean n.o.body could. Currently, he was engaged in a battle with a True Martial Academy prodigy.
This prodigy was Gu Feng, whom Xiang Shaoyun had once met. She had impressive combat strength, and her battle with Ouyang Chuanqi became increasingly intense. Both combatants were from ancient clans. They each had powerful trump cards, and when they started fighting each other, others couldn’t get involved even if they wanted to.
“Hand the Heaven Refining Cauldron over. This is not something you can own,” demanded Gu Feng.
“Come take it if you can,” said Ouyang Chuanqi. Holding the Heaven Refining Cauldron with one hand, he stabbed his spear out repeatedly with his other hand, unleas.h.i.+ng a series of ruthless attacks.
“Since you’re looking for death, don’t blame me for what’s about to happen,” said Gu Feng. She soared into the sky as though she had transformed into a phoenix. She repeatedly stabbed with her sword, sending numerous sword energies akin to a rain of feathers toward Ouyang Chuanqi.
Gu Feng was ranked seventh in the True Martial Academy. Her combat strength was exceptional. In fact, she was even stronger than Ouyang Chuanqi, and she had been fully suppressing him in their fight.
However, Ouyang Chuanqi had also cultivated for many years. He had rich combat experience, and he fought while retreating, not giving Gu Feng any chance to force him into a fight to the death.
Gu Feng’s companions tried surrounding Ouyang Chuanqi, but he still forged a path of blood out of the encirclement and quickly fled far away. It hadn’t been easy for Gu Feng to finally lay her eyes on a treasure. She was unwilling to let Ouyang Chuanqi flee. She gave chase with all her power, incredibly determined to s.n.a.t.c.h the Heaven Refining Cauldron.
Elsewhere, Han Chenfei obtained an ore of 10,000-year-old profound frost iron, which was an important material for forging saint-grade weapons. It was extremely rare. She also found a well emitting a frosty aura, and she suspected that the well contained a treasure with the frost property. Her plan was to enter and see if there was anything to be found inside.
However, before she could enter, some Nine Palace Academy and Sacred Deer Academy disciples rushed over to enter as well. Han Chenfei was a ninth-stage Dragon Ascension Realm cultivator, but that did not mean she could afford to completely disregard the other academies’ disciples.
On the contrary, one particular Nine Palace Academy disciple was even stronger than her. He overbearingly occupied the well and did not let anyone else enter. He was Leng Jiang, ranked five in the Nine Palace Academy. He was similarly a frost cultivator.
“Little girl, want to enter the frost well with me? If you can agree to become my cultivation partner, I will let you join me down there. What do you think?” offered Leng Jiang after scanning Han Chenfei’s body with a lecherous look.
Han Chenfei was the number two beauty of the Dragon Phoenix Academy. There was no doubting that she was an exceptionally charming woman. It wasn’t surprising that Leng Jiang would be infatuated with her.
Han Chenfei’s pupils spun around as she pondered. Then, a mesmerizing smile formed on her face as she said, “Sure. Let’s enter together.”
She walked toward Leng Jiang, taking dainty and elegant steps. Leng Jiang might seem infatuated, but he was still on high alert. He wouldn’t give her any chance to play any tricks on him. Just as Han Chenfei was about to reach Leng Jiang, she suddenly tossed something out. Leng Jiang reacted instantly and swung his weapon at the item tossed at him.
When his weapon struck the item, an incredibly powerful force erupted and blasted him away. A certain fragrance suffused the area, and Leng Jiang inhaled some of it accidentally. His vision immediately blurred. Han Chenfei took the opportunity to step past him and jumped into the well.
“Vile woman, I won’t spare you!” Leng Jiang roared and also jumped into the well.
The nearby disciples rushed forward and jumped inside. Soon, wails rang out. Several people could be seen fleeing the well in panic. They were frozen when they escaped, and it was clear they had failed to withstand the frost energy inside. It was either that or there was something terrifying waiting at the well’s bottom.
Neither Han Chenfei nor Leng Jiang was seen leaving the well. It was unknown which of them was the eventual victor.
Elsewhere, Xuan Yuantian had also found a treasure. However, his strength was in the middle tier among all the disciples, so it was extremely unlikely that he could get the treasure with so many competing disciples.
Seeing that he did not have much chance against them, he decisively left to search other locations, hoping that he would be lucky enough to find other treasures. And he was indeed lucky. At a certain location neglected by all other disciples, he stumbled upon a decent gain.
