Despite being prepared in his heart, Su Shi was still shocked by the scene in front of him.
There was a large city-state located in front of him!
The houses were like housing complexes, the streets were interlaced, the city wall surrounded it, and there was a luxurious palace in the distance.
It was almost like a human city!
But judging from the architectural style, it seems very old.
The palace was illuminated with pillars of light, forming a dome that enveloped the entire city, isolating it from the endless desert.
Yu Jiao Long was also surprised by the sight.
“What is this?”
Deep beneath this earth, under thousands of meters of desert, there was actually~ a hidden city-state?
Su Shi said, “I thought this was supposed to be an oasis, but it was swallowed up by quicksand, causing the entire city to sink. -”
He could even imagine the despair of the people in the city.
Although these pillars of light could hold back the sand, they could not hold back the demonic beasts, let alone help them out.
They could only wait in the despair of death.
“Being able to breathe means there is air, but I can’t use my spiritual power?”
Su Shi’s meridians were empty.
Not only was there no trace of spiritual energy in the air, even the spiritual energy in his body had been suppressed by some sort of force.
Yu Jiao Long frowned and said, “I can’t use my spiritual energy either.”
To be able to withstand the pressure of sand with a thickness of a thousand meters underground and protect it for so long, the power of this formation is simply terrifying!
Looking towards the luxurious palace where light met in the distance, Su Shi said, “It looks like the ‘opportunity’ is over there.”
However, the problem was how to get there.
The two of them stood on the city wall and looked down.
They could only see countless beasts coiling below.
Poisonous scorpions, demonic pythons, ghost spiders …… This place has become a nest of ferocious beasts!
Although there was no spiritual power here, it was also a natural shelter, naturally attracting these demonic beasts.
“The poisonous scorpion that attacked Fengsha City should have come from here.”
Su Shi said, “There is no choice but to kill them along the way.”
At this moment, Yu Jiao Long asked aloud, “After helping you get the opportunity, will you help me heal my wounds?”
Su Shi shook his head and said, “You saved me in Huangyuan City, even if you don’t do anything this time, I will still help you get rid of cold Qi in your body.”
Back in Huangyuan City, when the demon embryo was about to blow itself up, it was the silver spear that annihilated it.
It saved him, Zhan Qingchen and the others.
Yu Jiao Long said indifferently, “I’m just fulfilling Her Majesty’s mission.”
Su Shi nodded and said, “I know, besides that, there are other matters.”
“What is it?”
Yu Jiao Long said curiously.
Su Shi smiled and said, “Since you followed me in the shadows, you naturally knew about my relationship with Zhan Qingchen, but chose to keep it a secret for me and not tell Her Majesty.”
Yu Jiao Long froze for a moment.
It turned out that he had already guessed it.
That night, under the city wall, she personally heard the two confide in each other.
[I don’t care about the lives of the townspeople, I only care about you.]
Those words still echoed in her ears.
The two kissed deeply on the city wall, while she was drunk under the wall.
Yu Jiao Long shook her head, “I don’t like tattling on people behind their backs, I didn’t tell Her Majesty… it was only because Her Majesty didn’t ask.”
Su Shi smiled, “No matter how Saint Yu explains it, I always have my own way of living.”
Gratitude is repaid tenfold, resentment is repaid a hundredfold, a tooth for a tooth, an eye for an eye.
This is Su Shi’s way of life.
“Saint Yu doesn’t need to fight, I’ll get the opportunity myself.”
Su Shi jumped down from the city wall.
The demonic beast roared and moved, frantically surging towards this “stranger”.
“Master Chen said ‘what if I don’t have a sword in my hand? So what if there is no spiritual power?'”
“My heart should be like a sharp sword!”
Su Shi lowered his body and fluttered around like gossamer.
The sword intent cut through all the beasts in front of him!
But soon there will be more beasts to make up for it.
Su Shi’s two fingers merged and the sword light was like a dragon, even without his spiritual power, there was still no beast that could match it.
But the horde was endless.
At that moment, the air trembled slightly.
A blazing silver light swept past him, and the Overlord Spear spun away, instantly clearing the beasts on the street!
Yu Jiao Long stood beside him and said indifferently, “Your speed is too slow.”
Her body was like lightning as she jumped, her silver spear turning into a phantom, crushing the ferocious beast!
Even without her spiritual power, she was still a top powerhouse!
Su Shi couldn’t help but stagger at the sight.
This woman was indeed a little too strong.
If based on realm alone, Yu Jiao Long was even inferior to the other three Saints.
But if one were to see her strength in battle, the three Saints combined might not be able to kill her!
“What are you thinking about?”
Yu Jiao Long didn’t even look back, “Why don’t you follow quickly?”
Su Shi followed her as she ran forward.
The entire city is stepped, and the luxurious palace is at the top.
The closer they got to the palace, the steeper the terrain became, and the desire of the beasts around them to attack became stronger and stronger.
It was as if they were trying to stop them from entering.
But when the two stepped onto the last step, the wave of roaring beasts suddenly stopped.
Only to see those ferocious beasts stop where they were, their emotionless eyes staring at them coldly.
After a while, they actually slowly retreated backwards, completely disappearing into the darkness.
The two people looked at each other, feeling that something was not right.
Yu Jiao Long frowned, “They don’t seem to dare to enter here?”
Su Shi shook his head, “It seems like they are not afraid, but rather like they are obedient.”
These beasts were ordered to do as they were told, as if they had received some sort of instruction.
“Let’s go, we’ll figure it out once we get in.”
Yu Jiao Long stepped forward and pushed open the palace door of the main hall.
The two of them walked into the palace.
Just as the front foot stepped inside, the door automatically closed behind them.
Candlelight flickered in front of them, illuminating the luxurious palace.
The gilded palace, with dragons and phoenixes, beams made of sandalwood with ceilings and lamps made of crystal and jade, was as magnificent as Linlang Palace.
Below them was a red carpet, paving the way to the hall in front of them.
On either side stood golden-armed guardian statues, exuding a majestic and solemn aura.
Looking at his surroundings, Su Shi frowned slightly.
This city-state had been buried for an unknown number of years, yet this palace was clean and tidy, as if someone had been cleaning it all this time.
The two of them walked forward along the carpet.
Walking through the long corridor, they entered the hall.
Only to see a fat man wearing a dragon robe and a curtain of beads on his head sitting quietly on a dragon chair on a high stage.
His body was surprisingly intact.
“Even if it’s a corpse, it should have decomposed after all these years, right?”
As Su Shi’s words fell, the man in the dragon chair slowly raised his head.
His eyes looked at the two of them through the beaded curtain.
Su Shi sucked in a cold breath, “A living person?!”
There was nothing like that in the original story!
