The Smile of the Female Corpse
Every step of Jiang Chen made the other experts’ heart pound harder. If it was someone else who was pulling this stunt, they were going to scoff at him and were sure that he would be dead in a second; but now, it was Jiang Chen, the one who always produced miracles. Their hearts were beating fast because Jiang Chen had created too many miracles. Neither of them were certain if Jiang Chen could produce another miracle from this deadly ice coffin.
To Jiang Chen, the first reason he dared to venture closer to the Immortal Burying Coffin was because he was very worried about Yan Chenyu. The second reason was because he possessed a trump card that could save him. Should he sense any dangerous Qi, he would immediately open the door of the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda and hide inside.
The Immortal Burying Coffin was the Great Sovereign’s Weapon, one of the supreme weapons in the Immortal World, but the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda was a weapon of God Dao, which was much higher than Sovereign Weapons. Therefore, this was his greatest secret and reliance. Without this backup, he surely wouldn’t dare approach this dangerous coffin.
“Be careful, Junior Brother Jiang.”
Bu Qingfeng frowned. His expression was full of worry. Numerous disciples of Skycloud Pavilion were worrying, because even the half-step Golden Immortal genius of Yun Family died. So what Jiang Chen was doing was no different than sending himself to death.
But at the same time, these Skycloud Pavilion disciples were also filled with anticipation. They anticipated that Jiang Chen would create another miracle. If the Immortal Execution Order was obtained by someone, they would naturally hope that it would be their ally. Although Jiang Chen was an incomparably savage slaughterer, he had been very good to his fellow disciples. He had already saved lots of theirs lives from the beginning until now.
“It’s a pity that he doesn’t even know what’s life and death. However, no one can kill him, right?” Yun Canglan said in a sarcastic tone.
“He really is aware of his situation. Knowing that he’s going to die anyway, he chooses to risk his life to get the Immortal Execution Order. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have such great luck.”
“I wish that he have such great fortune. So that when he has gotten the token, it will be ours. If he dies, he won’t get the token, and the wondrous rock and heart of magma will be destroyed along by the Immortal Burying Coffin. That would surely be pitiful.”
Tuo Hai and Huangfu Zhan said with great interest. Although they wished Jiang Chen to die, they hoped that Jiang Chen could really create a miracle. In that case, it would surely help them to obtain the treasures.
*Pa…* *Pa…* *Pa…*
Jiang Chen moved forward, taking one step after another towards the Immortal Burying Coffin. Whenever his foot touched the altar, it produced a crisp sound that echoed deep in everyone’s heart.
Soon, he reached the dead zone where the two died. For an instant, the atmosphere turned deadly silent, everyone was eager to find out what would be Jiang Chen’s outcome.
Jiang Chen stopped for a while, took in a deep breath, and then continued to move forward.
All of a sudden, a wave of destructive and supreme Qi surged out from the Immortal Burying Coffin. It was an invisible Qi that carried the power of a Great Sovereign and only Jiang Chen could sense it.
Under this pressure, he felt like an insect under the Heavens and Earth, or a kayak floating in the vast ocean, too weak to make any resistance.
Jiang Chen muttered, he finally knew how the previous two died. They died under this mighty pressure that he was encountering right now.
He was ready to jump into the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda, but the moment he moved, he saw the lying Yan Chenyu. Instantly, all his thoughts of escaping had been brushed away. He couldn’t run away, or else, he would never know the secret within it.
“If I die, then I die. Xiao Yu will never let me die.”
Jiang Chen gritted his teeth, closed the door of the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda and continued to move forward. In the face of such critical situation, instead of fleeing, he chose to confront it. Sometimes, men had to face their problems head on because escaping wouldn’t be able to solve anything.
The invisible aura fell on Jiang Chen at last, enshrouding him from head to toe. The Qi of death had filled his innermost soul. Just at this moment, Jiang Chen detected some fluctuations from the corpse’s Qi.
After that, the pressure that fell on Jiang Chen was summoned back to the coffin like waves of water.
The mountain-like pressure retreated. Jiang Chen fell to the ground. His face was pale. His body was drenched with sweat, like he had experienced a moment of death. Despite it only lasting for a few seconds, all of his energy were drained.
“Jiang Chen just fell down. He isn’t dead! My God! He’s really not dead, only lying on the ground!”
“This bastard sure is a freak. He’s already very close to the ice coffin, but he isn’t dead yet. This is totally unexpected and impossible. This man has created another miracle.”
“He’s still alive! Could it be that he has obtained the recognition of the Immortal Burying Coffin? What is he actually? How can he have such a great fortune?”
No one wasn’t surprised by what happened. Jiang Chen was lying on the altar alive, and was too far away from death. Previously, the two experts exploded into shreds and died, but Jiang Chen was safe and sound. It didn’t matter if he was lying on the floor because he still could stand up.
Jiang Chen sucked in a breath of cold air and adjusted his Qi. Then, slowly, he got on his feet and continued moving forward. He knew that the reason the aura retreated must be related to the female corpse and Jiang Chen was certain that this female corpse must have something to do with Yan Chenyu.
Finally, Jiang Chen reached the ice coffin. When he took a closer look at the female corpse, he had no doubt that her peerlessly beautiful face was similar to Yan Chenyu and the same goes with her Qi.
“Xiao Yu, is that you?” Jiang Chen said lightly.
Just as Jiang Chen’s voice faded, the female corpse that had been immobile for an unknown number of years curled her lips into a smile. That was right. The female corpse smiled, although it was only a short moment!
