Zhan Qingchen had never liked to associate with other people.
But there were two exceptions: one was her Master, Sikong Lanyue, and the other was Chen Qingluan.
The two had known each other since childhood and had similar interests, and were good friends who had nothing to say to each other.
By the way, it has now been supplemented with Su Shi ……
Zhan Qingchen smiled and said, “Qingluan, I didn’t expect you to come too, I was worried for a long time when I heard you were missing before.”
Chen Qingluan’s pretty face swept a little red as she stammered, “It’s nothing, I’m just taking a little time to recover from my injuries.”
“Is that so?”
Zhan Qingchen secretly sneered and deliberately said, “I heard you lost to that Su Shi?”
Chen Qingluan stomped her foot and scolded, “You, why are you bringing that up now?!” 1
Zhan Qingchen shook her head and said, “It’s fine, Su Shi is a Holy-grade perfect genius, losing to him is not a disgrace, even I ……”
The words suddenly stopped in mid-sentence.
Chen Qingluan said curiously, “You also fought with him?”
Zhan Qingchen’s eyes drifted, “Something like that.”
She almost blurted out….
Chen Qingluan vaguely sensed that something was not right with her best friend.
It seemed that there was no longer the cold and lonely feeling of the past, but instead it was replaced by……
With the arrival of the two geniuses of the Righteous path, their auras had completely overwhelmed the people of the Demonic path.
They seemed to be cowering in a corner with indignant expressions.
“Those people from the Righteous path are too arrogant!”
“It can’t be helped, after all, they have two heavenly prides present.”
“It feels like Zhan Qingchen’s aura is even stronger, it’s not like she broke through again, is it?”
“Where are the people from the Netherworld Rakshasa Sect? Why haven’t they come yet?”
At this moment, the sound of breaking air came from the air, and two figures flew down from the air.
The noisy crowd instantly became quiet.
The eyes of the people of the Righteous path and Demonic path were focused on that person.
The legendary Holy-grade perfect talent, the super genius of the Netherworld Rakshasa Sect, Su Shi!
Naturally, the people of the Demonic path were extremely excited.
Although it was said that opportunity was a matter of each individual’s ability, but if the Righteous people and the Imperial Dynasty came together, it was likely that the people of the Demonic path would be cleared first before the competition even began.
But with Su Shi’s appearance, the other side would have to consider their options again.
The views of the Righteous people on the other hand were much more complicated.
Although his rare talent was terrifying, not many people had seen Su Shi fight, and no one could get a clear picture of his true strength.
Was he really a super genius, or was he just a fake?
Su Shi didn’t care about their gazes.
His eyes swept through the crowd and did not find Ye Xiao’s figure.
“It’s true that he’s not there, he should have entered the mountain earlier.”
Su Shi drew a cold smile.
Cheating was the Son of Heavens’ usual privilege.
Cen Yiren pointed not far away and said with an exasperated look on her face, “Your old swordplay buddies are also there.”
Su Shi froze for a moment, then turned his head to look.
He only saw Zhan Qingchen and Chen Qingluan standing together and looking at him calmly.
Su Shi smiled and winked.
Zhan Qingchen’s face turned red and she lowered her head nervously, “This bastard, isn’t he afraid of our relationship being discovered!?”
Chen Qingluan also averted her eyes in panic, “This pervert, he’s too bold!”
The two were so confused that neither of them realized that something was wrong with the other.
Just then, a soft sound rang through the air.
Only to see the golden light blooming behind Tianqu Mountain, a huge light pillar pierced the sky, exuding a strong spiritual light and treasure aura, and it seemed that the voice of the Great Dao could be faintly heard.
“Supreme treasure, obviously it is a supreme treasure!”
The crowd breathed heavily, staring at the divine light with fascination.
With such an aura, there must be a supreme treasure out there!
This was a great opportunity!
A golden chariot flashed through the sky, and a majestic voice rang out from the air.
“The Holy Emperor has spoken. Now that the opportunity is here, everyone should rely on their abilities. In case the monsters attack the city, Nascent Soul Realm and above are not to enter the mountain!”
The meaning of these words is clear.
As long as they don’t destroy Linfeng City, they can fight to their heart’s content, the imperial palace will not intervene easily.
As for the restriction of the realm, it is an old rule.
Since Chengtian Continent is within the territory of the imperial dynasty, it doesn’t matter if juniors fight to the death, but if Nascent Soul or stronger forces fight, the damage caused is unpredictable.
It is the usual practice of the Imperial Palace to be moderate and relaxed.
After the decision was given, the dragon horse whinnied and the carriage rose into the sky.
At the same time, the ban on blocking Tianqu Mountain was lifted.
The scene was silent for a moment.
“Seize the opportunity!”
The crowd exploded and swarmed towards Tianqu Mountain, afraid that if they were one step behind the treasure would be snatched away.
The foot of the mountain suddenly became empty.
Cen Yiren was also a little excited, “Su Shi, let’s quickly follow them!”
Su Shi shook his head, “Why rush? Let them go and clear the path first.”
The ancient emperor’s legacy, was it that easy to seize?
A deafening hiss came out, the trees fell to pieces, and the majestic Qi wave pushed hundreds of meters!
Ceng Yiren’s face turned white.
She had almost forgotten that Tianqu Mountain, where the demonic beasts lay, was one of the most dangerous places in the Northern Region!
Su Shi did not care about them, but walked towards Chen Qingluan and Zhan Qingchen.
Only the two of them were left here now.
Su Shi smiled and said, “This Tianqu Mountain is dangerous and unknown, why don’t we temporarily discard our prejudices and travel together in a group?”
Chen Qingluan snorted coldly, “Who wants to go with you?”
After saying that, she broke through the air with her sword and left.
Zhan Qingchen hesitated slightly, but seeing Cen Yiren on the side, she still whispered, “It’s very uncomfortable with outsider around.”
Su Shi nodded and took out a jade and handed it to her, “You and Chen Qingluan will accompany each other, break it if there is any danger.”
Zhan Qingchen reached out to take it and scratched it in her palm, blushing as she said, “Demon, you should also be careful.”
Then she also rose into the air and chased the green sword light.
Ceng Yiren walked over and said curiously, “What were you guys talking about just now?”
Su Shi glared at her, “She said you were an unwanted guest!” 2
Cen Yiren scratched her head, “Huh?”
