A tremendous light erupted and the ground collapsed.
A huge, deep pit was revealed.
Yu Jiao Long jumped in, only to see countless “tunnels” in front of her.
Swarms of poisonous scorpions had just swarmed and hollowed out the sand below.
The venom stuck to the sand and temporarily compacted the quicksand, thus creating this appearance.
This is the unique ability of the Red Sand Scorpion.
From a distance, the tunnel was deep and indistinct, without a single ray of light, and seemed to lead to the deepest part of the desert.
Yu Jiao Long’s divine sense covered the tunnel, and indeed caught Su Shi’s figure.
The other party was sweeping along the tunnel, speeding towards the depths.
“Can’t this guy stop making trouble?”
Yu Jiao Long’s pointed eyebrows pursed.
If anything else happened to Su Shi, she was afraid that she wouldn’t be able to drink for the rest of her life!
Shenxiu and the others also jumped in.
Seeing the scene before them, they all fell silent for a moment.
“Looks like Shengzi is underground.”
Shenxiu asked, “Lady Saint, should we split up and look for him?”
Yu Jiao Long shook her head, “You guys stay behind to guard Fengsha City, I will go alone to find him.”
Shenxiu bowed his head.
Yu Jiao Long’s body flashed and disappeared into the deep tunnel.
Shenxiu finally breathed a sigh of relief.
There was too much pressure in his heart to talk to Blue Dragon the Saint.
After all, she was the leading one of the four Saints and stronger than his superior, Cen Baihu.
But what surprised Shenxiu the most was the strength Su Shi showed.
It hadn’t been long since the two had last met, but the other party had broken through several small realms, coming from the Early Stage of Golden Elixir Realm to the Perfect Stage of Golden Elixir Realm!
And looking at the terrifying divine fire that burned everything, he was afraid that his true strength was far more than just the Perfect Stage of Golden Elixir Realm!
“No wonder he can become Shengzi, this talent is really terrible!”
Shenxiu shook his head and sighed.
Cao Jie and the others looked at each other and smiled bitterly.
They were both Golden Elixir Realm practitioners, but the difference seemed too great.
Deep in the tunnel.
It was pitch black, with not a single light in sight.
Su Shi’s feet did not touch the ground as he swept forward.
Both the Red Sand Scorpion and the Bloodhorn Falcon lived deep within the desert.
They usually did not prey on humanity, let alone attack Fengsha City out of nowhere.
Clearly, they had been driven here by something.
“A strange movement in the heart of the desert?”
“It seems like it should be like that.”
Su Shi’s eyes flickered.
Moreover, some people from Shadow had to be found.
They were his men, they must not die in vain, they must be found dead or alive!
Suddenly, a tremendous light flashed behind him.
A figure appeared in front of Su Shi like lightning.
Upon seeing the visitor, Su Shi stopped in his steps, “Why are you here?”
Yu Jiao Long frowned, “How dare you ask me? Why do you always run around when there’s nothing to do?”
Her mission was to protect Su Shi, but Su Shi always liked to put himself in danger.
This gave Yu Jiao Long a headache.
Su Shi nodded and said, “You are just in time, the two of us should have a better chance if we go together.”
Yu Jiao Long firmly refused.
She had guessed long ago that this strange phenomenon did not happen by chance.
But in her eyes, nothing was more important than Su Shi’s safety.
After all, it was about whether she could still drink for the rest of her life!
“Come back with me.”
Yu Jiao Long pulled Su Shi’s arm and was about to take him away without a word.
Su Shi frowned, “If you don’t let me go, I won’t help you heal your wounds.”
Yu Jiao Long’s movements froze.
Looking back at him, she said coldly, “How do you know about this?”
She hadn’t said anything to anyone about this matter!
Su Shi said indifferently, “The reason why you drink a lot and excessively is actually to suppress cold Qi.”
“Buried by immortal ice for so many years, cold Qi has long since seeped into every inch of your bones and meridians, and not even Her Majesty’s hands can completely remove it.”
“So, you can only use strong wine to dispel the cold and anesthetize yourself, slowly becoming what you are today.
He looked into Yu Jiao Long’s deep eyes, “Her Majesty’s punishment of not being able to drink for six months is not meant to punish your alcohol addiction, but to make you endure six months of suffering from the chill that eats away at your body!”
This punishment was not child’s play, but torture in the true sense!
Yu Jiao Long’s face was expressionless, but her eyes trembled slightly.
“Her Majesty told you this?”
Back then, she was dug out of the ice by the Demon Empress and became the Eastern Saint of the Netherworld Rakshasa Sect.
Many years had passed and no third person knew about this matter.
But this man was able to talk about it in such detail.
Other than that, she couldn’t think of any other reason.
Su Shi shook his head, “I guessed it.”
Yu Jiao Long sneered, “Hee~, there’s no way you can tell fortunes.”
“Sorry, but I really know how to tell fortunes.”
Su Shi cupped his chin and said, “Your Qi is bright with purple light, which means that a noble person had appeared recently.”
Yu Jiao Long hugged his shoulders and said suspiciously, “The noble person you’re talking about can’t be yourself, right?”
There was a soft sound and the tunnel lit up with golden light.
Pale golden flames could be seen burning quietly above Su Shi’s palm, dispersing all the surrounding darkness.
“Her Majesty can’t eliminate cold Qi, but I can.”
“If it was the Blue Sky Heavenly Flame before, it might not be enough, but the Desolate Star God Flame is already capable of shaking off the coldness in your body.”
“If the Divine Flame can go further, it is not impossible to melt all the cold Qi!”
Waves rippled under Yu Jiao Long’s eyes.
Immortal ice and cold Qi had merged with him.
If she wanted to eliminate it completely, she could only use top-grade divine fire to slowly heal it.
But, how rare was top-grade divine fire?
With the power of the Netherworld Rakshasa Sect, it had been searched for for many years, but still came up empty-handed.
And now, the one who possessed the divine flame was standing right in front of her!
Su Shi smiled and said, “How about it, is Saint Yu considering it?”
Thinking of the pain of being tortured by cold Qi all night, Yu Jiao Long looked slightly relieved.
Just at this moment, the sand wall trembled, and lumps of yellow sand continued to flow down.
Su Shi’s expression changed, “Not good, the tunnel is about to collapse!”
Yu Jiao Long’s silver spear flashed in her hand, and her other hand grabbed Su Shi’s arm.
“Hold on tight.”
The silver light disappeared like lightning!
The next moment, the tunnel was completely buried by sand!
It seemed like a long time had passed, yet it seemed like only a moment.
The whistling wind stopped, and a clear and fresh female voice sounded in his ears, “You can let go now.”
Su Shi opened his eyes.
He saw Yu Jiao Long looking at him coldly.
And his own feet didn’t touch the ground, he was wrapped tightly around her neck, and his legs were still wrapped around her slender waist.
Su Shi jumped off her and said awkwardly, “The situation is urgent, besides it was you who told me to hold you tight.”
“I only told you to hold on tight!”
Facing Yu Jiao Long’s cold face, Su Shi unnaturally averted his gaze.
Instead, he was shocked by the scene in front of him.
