There Was No Impact
The four great experts finally dived into the magma. Countless of eyes fell upon them, especially the genius half-step Golden Immortal who had jumped into the lethal magma first. He knew how scary the magma ocean was better than anyone. Even if it was the four of them, it wouldn’t be easy for them to obtain the heart.
The four geniuses were no longer visible. They had completely submerged themselves in the ocean of magma.
“The magma is too horrifying. It had even formed its own heart. I wonder if they can capture that fire dragon.” Guo Jie said.
Standing next to him, Jiang Chen smiled, but didn’t speak. His perception was beyond everyone’s imagination. He could already feel the scariness of the magma. Even a Golden Immortal wouldn’t be able to stay too long in it if he didn’t have extraordinary techniques, much less capturing the crafty fire dragon.
Three minutes later.
*Bang!* *Bang!* *Bang!* *Bang!*
Four shadows rushed out of the magma almost at the same time. They were precisely Bu Qingfeng and the other three geniuses. Their faces were pale, their bodies were drenched with sweat and were shivering while standing on the shore. They stared at the magma below in horror, dumbstruck.
“It seems like it would be another wild goose chase. The scariness of this magma is far beyond our imaginations. Even Bu Qingfeng and the other three could do nothing about it.”
“They are already considered pretty good to be able to hold on for three minutes. It seems like the fire dragon is a very cunning one. It won’t be an easy thing to bring it under control.”
“If they can’t even do it, no one else can.”
Almost all of them were sighing. Despite their number, they had to shrink back at the sight of the magma. By now, those wiser experts had already figured out one thing. That icy door that they saw earlier was connected to the fiery door, which meant that the icy door was just after the fiery door, but the other door was nowhere to be found. According to their speculation, the icy door would appear again once someone got ahold of the magma’s heart.
Inside the icy door was where the real ancient tomb was. In other words, if no one managed to capture the fire dragon, their trip into this tomb would be wasted, as they hadn’t even gone into the real ancient tomb. If this would really happen, many of them would feel dissatisfied.
The four geniuses didn’t say a word. Being in the magma for three minutes had consumed too much of their energy. Now, they needed time to recover, but judging from their faces, they still hadn’t given up on the fire dragon yet. It seemed like they were planning to dive into the ocean again once they had recovered.
“It seems like no one will be getting that heart.” Guo Jie shook his head.
“I can try.” Jiang Chen smiled, then strode forward.
“You can’t be reckless, Brother Jiang. This magma is too horrifying. Not even a Golden Immortal can stay in it for long.” Guo Jie sounded worried.
“There’s no harm.”
Jiang Chen had a relaxed look. His body accelerated forward and vanished into the ocean with a puff.
“Who was it? Who just leaped into the magma?”
Someone shouted. The originally silent scene became restless. Due to Jiang Chen being too quick, most of them didn’t see clearly who the person was. Furthermore, no one else would dare to jump into the magma after seeing the condition of the four geniuses. It was undoubtedly an act of seeking death.
“It was Jiang Chen! He has jumped into the magma. He really has too much of a nerve.”
“That’s right. I saw it too. It was precisely Jiang Chen.”
“Jiang Chen is being too arrogant. Not even the Golden Immortals can stay there for long, isn’t he just seeking his death by jumping straight into it? Did he really thought of himself as a god?”
“We’ll see. I estimate that he won’t be able to last ten seconds.”
The restlessness among the crowd intensified. Many of them thought that Jiang Chen wouldn’t even last one second. Although Jiang Chen had a heaven defying talent, his cultivation was still too weak. If not even a Golden Immortal like Bu Qingfeng could withstand such a temperature, how could Jiang Chen possibly withstand it?
“Humph! An insect-like person wants to compete with us? That’s just ridiculous!”
Tuo Hai of Profound Sun Sect snorted, totally not putting Jiang Chen in his eyes.
“Is that so? However, it’s such a pity that Profound Sun Sect has suffered huge losses because of him and he’s still very alive. Isn’t that an irony?”
Bu Qingfeng remarked sarcastically. He had never seen Jiang Chen before, but he had heard of Jiang Chen’s name for a long time. This genius who had just recently risen to fame was beginning to create legends in One-Line-Sky, and he had become very well-known in the ancient tomb.
“This bastard has also killed a genius of our family. I’m going to slaughter him right away the moment he comes out of the magma.” Yun Canglan said.
Ten seconds passed in a blink while they were waiting for Jiang Chen to come out. Then, a minute passed, but no sign of him could be found, as though he had sunk into the depths of the magma.
“What happened? Could it be that Jiang Chen could really withstand the heat for a minute? This is impossible. I could only stay there for a second. What kind of a joke is this?”
The half-step Golden Immortal who was the first one to dive into the magma was shocked.
“That bastard sure is amazing for staying in there for so long.”
“I don’t think so. He may not even have the ability to come out of the magma and has already been incinerated into nothingness by the burning lava.”
“That’s right. He must be dead after such a long period of time. Besides, he’s merely a half-step Divine Immortal, he wouldn’t be able to hold on for so long.”
One minute might seem very short, but it was already long enough for those who had suffered the horror of the ocean. Almost all of them didn’t believe that Jiang Chen could stay in the magma for one minute. Majority of them concluded that Jiang Chen had already died in the incinerating magma.
The current Jiang Chen was being lashed by the heat and flames while being in the ocean of magma, but none of these waves affected him. Instead, under the circulation of the Fire Dragon Seal, the flames were absorbed into his body as nourishment.
Apart from that, his body was covered by a layer of flames – the combination of True Dragon Flame and True Thunderfire. Those were the fire of the Heavens and Earth, the king of all fire. Any flames that confronted these two flames would automatically yield.
Therefore, after Jiang Chen entered the magma, he wasn’t affected in the least. He could move freely like a fish in the ocean, totally unhindered.
“The magma here is truly scary. If the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda is able to absorb all of the energy here, it won’t have problems condensing another two levels.”
Jiang Chen’s eyes sparkled. He immediately ripped open the door of the pagoda. The Ancestral Dragon Pagoda could absorb any kind of energy and the energy in the magma was no exception.
