Chapter 322: Mysterious Murals, War in the Barbarian Realm!
As soon as Wang Que stepped into the Black Tower, the large door behind him closed with a loud “bang.”
Looking ahead, he saw a large space, with torches hanging on the surrounding walls, flickering and dispersing the darkness. Su Shi and Yu Ren’er were standing in front. Wang Que felt relieved, and his nervousness gradually subsided.
Although he still didn’t know what was inside this Black Tower, as long as he was with Su Shi, he felt a sense of security.
Wang Que walked to Su Shi’s side.
Su Shi didn’t react at all; he was earnestly looking at the wall in front.
Following his gaze, Wang Que saw on the dark wall a series of images, almost covering the entire wall. The brushstrokes were somewhat abstract, but the scenes could still be distinguished—it depicted a war. There were two camps, one of the barbarians and the other of the ferocious beings, engaging in the most prolonged and devastating battle across the entire Barbarian Realm. Both the ferocious beasts and the barbarians suffered heavy casualties.
The bodies piled up like mountains, and the blood flowed like rivers. Even though the murals were somewhat rough, the brutality of the war was still evident.
Yu Ren’er was shocked by the scenes depicted in front of her and fell silent for a moment before saying, “My father once told me that the Barbarian Realm had experienced turmoil in the past. Almost all clans were involved, and the war lasted for decades, staining the wasteland red with blood. It was a hard-earned peace, but the Barbarian Realm suffered greatly, and many clans have not yet recovered.”
Su Shi frowned slightly.
In his memory, hundreds of years ago, there had indeed been a war in the Barbarian Realm, but the original plot only briefly mentioned it and did not provide much description.
Moreover, this Black Tower had never mentioned it before.
Now it seemed that things were not as simple as they appeared.
The murals continued to extend to the end of the wall.
There was an entrance there, but it was blocked by an invisible barrier.
“So, what exactly is this Black Tower?”
Su Shi looked around but found nothing.
Just then, Wang Que exclaimed and pointed at the wall, saying, “Look, the murals seem to be glowing!”
Both of them looked up.
They saw that the murals on the wall were gradually emitting a light, as if an invisible brush was sketching them. Soon, all the murals lit up with a faint mist pervading the air.
“It’s demonic aura!”
As Su Shi spoke, a sudden roar echoed in their ears.
The light of the murals flickered, and the images of ferocious beasts were projected in the air, then twisted and turned into reality within the faint mist. A pair of crimson eyes glowed, staring intensely at the three of them, filled with greedy and cruel intent.
“A trap? Or a test?”
Su Shi wasn’t sure about the situation, but the most important thing at the moment was to kill these ferocious beasts first.
“Ren’er, any problem?” Su Shi asked.
Yu Ren’er’s fingertips were surrounded by light, and her expression showed no fear. “No problem.”
Su Shi nodded.
The strength of these ferocious beasts wasn’t very strong. Yu Ren’er herself was also a top-notch prodigy, comparable to Chen Qingluan and Zhan Qingchen, so dealing with this situation shouldn’t be a problem.
Su Shi glanced at Wang Que and warned, “Be careful not to die.”
“Okay,” Wang Que nervously nodded.
As the murals’ light flickered, the space was almost filled with ferocious beasts.
The mist churned, and the ferocious beasts pounced on them with roaring cries. A black sword fell into Su Shi’s palm. The blade was pitch-black, and the hilt was entwined with a dragon, its mouth holding the blade, emanating a terrifying sharpness.
The Dragon-Slaying Sword.
With a soft shout, the blazing sword light tore through the ferocious beasts, instantly engulfing them. The ferocious beasts’ bodies couldn’t even stop the sword light; they were chopped into minced meat before they could even howl in pain.
The sword light pierced through the mist and struck the wall, seemingly being absorbed and disappeared directly. There was not even a mark left on the wall.
Numerous ferocious beasts were harvested, but the murals’ light kept flickering, continuously replenishing them.
These ferocious beasts had average strength, with the strongest being only at the Foundation Establishment Initial Stage. For Su Shi, they were merely appetizers; he could easily kill large groups of them, turning their bodies into ashes.
However, Wang Que was struggling a bit.
He was only at the Foundation Establishment Late Stage and couldn’t match the strength of the ferocious beasts. He could only withstand the tide of beasts with difficulty.
Su Shi saw this but didn’t lend him a hand. On one hand, Wang Que wasn’t in immediate danger of losing his life.
On the other side, Su Shi also wanted to see his potential. How could someone recognized as the Chosen One possess such innate talent and aptitude?
A colorful tiger roared and pounced.
Wang Que’s figure flashed, evading the fatal attack, and at the same time, he activated his spiritual power in his palm, preparing to strike the tiger demon’s spirit platform with a palm. However, before he could make a move, his expression suddenly changed.
“Not enough spiritual power!”
This Black Tower was filled with demonic aura, and he couldn’t absorb even a trace of spiritual power. His own spiritual power reserves were far from enough to sustain such a prolonged battle. While he was busy dodging, he didn’t notice that his spiritual power in the dantian had almost dried up. He couldn’t even use a single magical technique!
The tiger demon missed its strike, and its body twisted as its tail, like a steel whip, lashed out.
Wang Que gritted his teeth, exerting his remaining strength, and managed to dodge the attack by crouching low. Then, he charged straight towards the tiger demon! He knew that the ferocious beasts wouldn’t give up easily, so while he still had some strength left, he had to finish the battle quickly!
Wang Que flipped and rode on the tiger’s back, lightning-fast, he dug into the tiger demon’s eyes!
His right hand directly pierced into the tiger demon’s eye, and blood, mixed with murky fluid, spurted out!
“Ao Ao Ao!”
The tiger demon let out a deafening howl of agony, trying to twist its body forcefully to throw Wang Que off its back. However, Wang Que’s arm veins bulged, firmly holding onto the tiger demon’s neck, refusing to let go. For a moment, the tiger demon couldn’t do anything to him.
Su Shi’s eyes flickered. This tiger demon was at the Foundation Establishment Initial Stage. Without relying on spiritual power, being able to withstand this long with just physical strength was something a Foundation Establishment cultivator couldn’t achieve.
“No wonder, so he’s a martial cultivator?”
Wang Que wasn’t young, but his cultivation was only at the Foundation Establishment Late Stage. Although it was related to the lack of resources, a Chosen One couldn’t be this weak. It turned out that his talent lay in his physical body!
He was a born martial cultivator!
Wang Que roared, and almost his entire arm entered the tiger demon’s eye sockets!
Then, he forcefully opened the toughest part of the beast’s skull!
With a roar, the tiger demon weakly fell to the ground.
Its eyes gradually dimmed, turning into ashes and disappearing completely. Dead.
Wang Que had killed the tiger demon with his physical strength alone!
His right hand trembled slightly, already feeling weak, but his determination and ferocity remained unchanged. He remained vigilant against attacks from other ferocious beasts.
A hint of a smile flashed in Su Shi’s eyes.
“The protagonist recognized by the system is indeed not that simple.”
“It seems that even if I don’t intervene in the Beast Arena, he shouldn’t die, right?”
