Getting the Seeds Out of the Fire
Jiang Chen stared silently at the ancient vine. It seemed like an old man who had passed through a long procession of years and already had one foot in the grave. However, it remained lofty and overbearing, which made them feel completely at ease and refreshed. Just by standing beside the ancient vine, even their heart regained serenity and remained peaceful.
“It’s the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine!”
Everyone was amazed that Hong Yan from the Red-clothed Thirteenth House and the two greatest guardians of Eight Lineages Silver River were here. However, all of them stayed still and dared not to move as none of them knew the exact position of the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart.
“This is the real Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine!” Yu Jingfan whispered.
Everyone held their breath. Although they found the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine, where exactly was the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart located? Each of them were confused, plunging deep into thought. Even the two greatest guardians, Fei Ying and Xiong Zhan had no clue about it.
“Where is the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart?”
Xiong Zhan murmured, wearing a frown on his face.
“No one knew where the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart was located, however, it should have grown along with the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine for sure. The master mentioned that the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart was extremely difficult to find. And it was snatched by a mighty strong demon ten thousands years ago.”
Fei Ying said with a dignified look.
“I believe that the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart hasn’t ripened completely. Otherwise, there will be a heaven-shaking and earth-shattering phenomena in the entire universe. I think the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart should be in this volcanic cave.”
Hong Yan murmured. However, none of them gave a response.
“Jiang Chen, where do you think the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart is located?’
Yu Jingfan looked at Jiang Chen.
“I don’t know. Since it’s a spiritual treasure that only appears every ten thousand years, I think it should have intelligence and spirituality. No one knew how long the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine had been here.”
Jiang Chen was not sure if the spiritual creature, Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine, had existed for more than ten thousand years. Compared to the thousand-year ginseng root and thousand year Ganoderma lucidum, the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine had existed for many years. It would be a tough task to find the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart.
“I doubt that this Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart has grown legs.”
Fei Ying squinted eyes slightly, watching the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine with a confused and doubtful look. None of them knew where the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart was.
The Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine had its roots under the boiling magma. It was unbelievable that the ancient vine was immortal and non-combustible as well. Even the heat of the magma was not a threat to it.
A tremendous noise and an ear-spitting explosion was heard, making everyone feel that their scalp were stabbed with pins and needles. The holes that surrounded the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine spewed out balls of light, and the light kept bursting constantly in the air, sending its rays in all directions. It was truly destructive and terrifying. Yu Jingfan tried to resist it with one hand, intending to protect Jiang Chen and the others. He could not help but resist with all his strength even though he was already a Half-step Divine King. The exploding ball of light was too terrifying and dangerous, it even forced a Half-step Divine King to struggle between life and death.
“Brother, watch out!”
Yu Er’niang was both scared and worried. Neither the people of the Red-clothed Thirteen House or Fei Ying dared to treat it lightly at this moment. They tried hard to dodge the terrifying explosive balls of light constantly. The magma was totally bursting and the volcanic cave was torn apart. Sounds of explosion continuously rang out in the underground while the entire mountain range was shaken by the explosion, trembling and shattering.
At this moment, thousands of people rushed to the volcanic cave when they saw the continuous explosion.
“It’s here. Hurry up before it is too late!”
“Finally, the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart is moving?”
“Haha. No one can defeat me. The Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart is mine.”
Numerous powerful experts were surging forward, leaping up to the sky. The volcanic cave suddenly became a place where the experts assembled in Wu Dong Sunset mountain.
“Is it going to collapse? We will definitely be swallowed by the magma if the cave collapses.”
Yu Huafan looked anxious.
“There’s no smoke without fire. I guess the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart will appear soon.”
Jiang Chen whispered under his breath. He believed that it was an important sign which preceded the birth of the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart.
“Look, what is that?”
Xue Liang frowned. He saw four scoop-shaped black seeds that were as big as the palm of one’s hand floating above the magma. However, it was strange that it did not even melt or sunk into the magma.
“Those black scoop-shaped seeds are unusual.”
Yu Jingfan said, looking serious. At the same time, Fei Ying and the others also noticed the four black seeds that were floating above the magma.
“Could it be the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart?”
Yu Er’niang was shocked and everyone had fallen into confusion. However, they could not be sure that those four black seeds were Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart. If it was real, it meant that there were four of them.
“We must get those black seeds.”
Jiang Chen asserted.
“Those balls of light keep exploding and we are all surrounded by danger now. Since I am unable to summon and create a copy of myself, you guys should go and get those black seeds.”
Yu Jingfan stated.
“I will get it then.”
Yu Huafan made up his mind. Even though he was at the peak of the Heavenly God Realm, which was only one step away from the Half-step Divine King realm, he felt perturbed in his heart and hesitated. However, he has no other choice as he was bound to get the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart.
“Don’t worry. I will definitely get it and no one could restrain me from obtaining the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart.”
Yu Huafan jumped into the holes. Unfortunately, his entire body was already covered with wounds when he tried to reach for those black seeds. The moment he touched one of the black seeds successfully, he had already suffered a serious injury and his divine strength was nearly exhausted in an instant. He failed to resist the glowing heat of magma.
It was like pulling chestnuts out of the fire. It was a matter of life and death for them. They would lose their lives if they made the slightest mistake.
Yu Huafan shouted in pain. His whole body was suffering in the burning magma, and it was truly miserable for him.
“No way. The heat of the magma is exceedingly horrifying, it is not the common magma for sure.”
Yu Huafan’s face turned pale, looking totally frightened. If he stayed in the volcanic holes for one more second, he would have lost his arm.
Meanwhile, both Hong Yan and Fei Ying struck out and drilled into the holes swiftly. In just the twinkling of an eye, each of them returned with one black seed, looking dignified.
“The magma is really terrifying and mysterious, as well as those black seeds.”
Fei Ying narrowed his eyes slightly, holding a black seed which was boiling hot in his hand. The moment that he determined to grab the second seed, he was thoroughly defeated by the fire waves. It was already fortunate that he was able to retreat without suffering an injury.
