The matter of Empress Xiao Yao has come to an end, but the expedition in the Golden Horizon was far from over. Everyone was ready to part company again. After all, there were too many encounters in the Golden Horizon. Most of them were individuals with great luck. They would only waste their chances by staying together. Some of them might not be able to take advantage of their opportunities and luck.
“Everyone, there are still plenty of treasures in Golden Horizon. Now that the matter about the inheritance of the Great Sovereign is over, I believe the other immortal vaults will continue to emerge one after another. We better part company here, and search for our own opportunity that could help us progress rapidly,” Jiang Chen spoke.
The rest of them nodded, agreeing to what he just said. There were too many geniuses here. Each of them were doing their best to advance their cultivation realm, which gave them no reason to enjoy the moment of being together. The emergence of Empress Xiao Yao had drawn many powerful geniuses, such as Nanbei Chao, Zhang Yulang and Xia Xiaotian. They were all unparalleled geniuses. No one could tell to what level they would grow to in their next encounter. So if Jiang Chen and the rest stayed stagnant, the tide would surely turn against them the next time they met.
“Sister Ning left me a message before she vanished, saying that the doors of the Golden Clan will be opened soon. The moment it opens, the scene is certainly going to be even more ma.s.sive than the inheritance of Empress Xiao Yao. That is when we will meet again. Let’s go now, and find our own direction,” Jiang Chen added.
Wu Ningzhu had told him that the Fire of Sun would bring great benefits to him when the doors of the Golden Clan opened. So Jiang Chen was certain that the secret of the clan that had been hidden for tens of thousands of year would surely emerge this time. When that time came, it would be the true pinnacle battle in Golden Horizon where mighty half-step Immortal Venerables would appear.
“The Golden Clan which has been hidden for tens of thousands of years is finally going to emerge. I truly antic.i.p.ate that event.”
Yang Lang’s eyes glittered. No one on the scene doubted Jiang Chen’s words. The emergence of the inheritance of Empress Xiao Yao gave them a strong feeling that the expedition this time would be different from all the previous expeditions. The real secret would surely be unearthed.
Or it shouldn’t be called a secret. After all, it had existed for a very long time and no one knew what had actually happened here. n.o.body could imagine the degree of the great ancient war. What they only cared about was the treasures left behind by the Golden Clan.
A moment later, the rest of them left in succession. Even Tyrant and Han Yan had departed. It wasn’t because they didn’t want to stay together, but it wasn’t the time for their reunion now. The expedition in Golden Horizon was an opportunity for them. If they missed it now, they might not have the chance again next time.
Dragon s.h.i.+san had left too, heading towards one direction on his own. No one knew where he was heading.
Eventually, only Jiang Chen and Big Yellow were left.
“Big Yellow, I’m going to enter the thirty-third level of the Ancestral Dragon PaG.o.da to create a new immortal technique.”
Jiang Chen expressed his intention. He felt that one shouldn’t always look for treasures in one’s cultivation path. At a certain point, one had to calm down to meditate about some things sometimes, it was more important to comprehend some things. From the moment he acquired the Fire of Sun, he had the idea of creating his own technique. And after knowing the message of Wu Ningzhu, he understood that there was only the Golden Clan that could attract his interest. So, he wanted to take the time to complete his work before the emergence of the Golden Clan.
“Don’t dive into it first. I can sense that there are treasures nearby. Let’s go over and check it out. It’s not too late to go into seclusion after that. However, if you let go such a treasure just like this, it will be too idiotic.”
Big Yellow chuckled at Jiang Chen. The moment the inheritance of Empress Xiao Yao vanished, he could already feel some movement not far away, however he only said it until now. Now that only the two of them were left, he naturally would want to check it out.
Upon hearing this, Jiang Chen’s eyes couldn’t help but sparkle. He had never doubted Big Yellow’s ability to seek for treasures, and the things that caught Big Yellow’s attention were always extraordinary.
Jiang Chen had no hesitation. Under Big Yellow’s lead, they flew towards the source of the fluctuation. Just as Big Yellow had mentioned, it was foolish to turn a blind eye to a treasure that was right in front of one’s eyes. And the treasures that were hidden in Golden Horizon wouldn’t be just a small harvest.
Soon, one man and one dog came to the center of a dilapidated mountain range. The mountain range was old and barren. There wasn’t a single fluctuation of spatial qi in the area, indicating that there were no overlapping s.p.a.ce. Normally, this kind of ordinary place wouldn’t draw people’s attention because no spatial fluctuation was equivalent to no immortal vault.
There was a mountain slope ahead. Due to its unremarkable look, it could only be called a sand dune. Big Yellow’s eyes were fixed on that dune unblinkingly. His st.u.r.dy tail was wagging continuously.
“Big Yellow, don’t tell me that this is the place that you are talking about? Nothing seems peculiar in this place. How can there be treasures here? I thought there will be some kind of immortal vault.” Jiang Chen displayed a look of disappointment.
“Fool, are you saying that good treasures can only be found in immortal vaults? There’s a treasure hidden in this sand dune. If you don’t believe me, dig it up.” Big Yellow darted Jiang Chen a contemptuous glance.
“Are you sure?”
Doubtfully, Jiang Chen strode towards the sand dune, and wave out a ray of energy light, crumbling the sand dune straightaway. Sure enough, an ancient scroll emerged from below.
“There’s really something.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes sparkled. Immediately, he stretched out his hand and grabbed the scroll. The scroll seemed incredibly tattered and had existed for unknown period of time. Ancient vicissitude Qi was emitted from it. Its surface was full of dust and soil. It seemed common, something that people wouldn’t give a second look even if it was thrown on the street.
“Use your flame to burn it.” Big Yellow’s eyes fell upon the tattered scroll and spoke.
Jiang Chen looked at Big Yellow. Why is Big Yellow asking him to burn this broken scroll? Anyone should know that his flame was far from ordinary. His flames would surely be unbearable to the scroll. He was afraid that scroll would immediately be burned to ashes.
