Lan Qi and Lin An immediately began to cultivate on the spot, and only after they had learned the Hurricane Sword technique did they walk out of the pyramid.
“You can’t go in!”
When they reached the entrance of the pyramid, Junior Brother Zhou’s voice suddenly rang out. Lin An quickly walked out and saw a group of disciples dressed in green pushing Junior Brother Zhou to the ground.
The green-clothed sword cultivator in the lead looked at him and said unhappily, “Your Senior Sister has already been in there for almost two days. If she had succeeded, she would have come out long ago. Since she hasn’t come out yet, she is likely to have already died in there. You guys have failed, so it should be up to our Green Sword Sect to enter the pyramid, shouldn’t it?”
“Who said I died in there?”
Lan Qi’s voice suddenly rang out from the midst of the crowd. When Junior Brother Zhou saw Lan Qi and Lin An, his face lit up with joy, and he hurriedly got up from the ground and ran to Lan Qi’s side.
Lan Qi looked at his dirtied pants and couldn’t help but frown.
“Are you the Senior Sister that this kid mentioned? What treasure did you obtain from the pyramid?”
The leader of the group, a man dressed in green, asked Lan Qi. His tone was high and mighty, and it made her feel very uncomfortable.
“What we got is none of your business.”
Lan Qi replied in a similarly impolite tone.
“Haha!” The leader of the group laughed sinisterly. “If you’ll be sensible enough to give me the treasure, we won’t make things difficult for you. Otherwise…”
The Green Sword Sect’s leader didn’t need to complete the sentence for Lan Qi to understand what he meant.
“Otherwise, what?” Lin An asked boldly. “When are you going to apologize to my junior brother? Didn’t you see that you guys made his clothes dirty?”
As soon as Lin An finished speaking, he threw a handful of yellow sand that he had secretly grabbed at the leader of the group.
The man in green waved his hand, and a green shield immediately formed in front of him and blocked the yellow sand.
Lin An didn’t wait for the yellow sand to settle. He quickly rushed towards him and threw a second handful of sand at his face before he retreated quickly and returned to Lan Qi’s side.
“Alright, now we’re even. I don’t think we have anything else to discuss.”
However, the Green Sword Sect’s lead disciple was obviously not interested in talking anymore. He strode towards Lin An and threw a punch at his head.
The arrogant lead disciple was at the peak of the golden core stage. Since he probably had rich combat experience, Lin An did not dare to underestimate him. He hurriedly circulated his morality demon sealing technique to block the attack.
In an instant, the lead disciple’s fist landed on Lin An’s palm, and a terrifying energy wave spread out beside them and blew out a yellow sand ring.
“Dark flame transformation!”
Several flames suddenly burst out from Lin An’s body, and an immense force erupted from his hand and pushed his opponent a few steps back.
The Green Sword Sect’s lead disciple hadn’t expected that he would lose the fight. Furthermore, he was in front of so many junior brothers and sisters. He immediately flew into a rage out of humiliation and ordered the junior disciples to attack Lin An.
“Everyone, attack this ingrate! Tear him into pieces for me!”
There were about thirty disciples from the Green Sword Sect present at the scene. Upon hearing the lead disciple’s order, all of them rushed forward together with great momentum.
The sharp sounds of sword-drawing rang out one after another, scaring the surrounding onlookers into retreating in a panic because they were afraid that the fight would affect them.
Lin An stuffed Junior Brother Zhou and Lan Qi into the pyramid behind him and then pulled out the Nine Nether Weeping Blood Sword. A serious expression quickly formed on his face, and he clenched the sword tightly in his hands.
At the same time, Lin An activated the Eastern Emperor Bell to protect himself from the impending multiple sword strikes.
Clang! Clang! Clang!
The frantic chimes of swords clashing with each other rang out into the air. Lin An couldn’t block all the simultaneous attacks from the Green Sword Sect disciples. However, none of the swords caused any damage to his body.
Instead, they triggered the Eastern Emperor Bell’s characteristic of devouring magic treasures, and it devoured the high-quality swords in the disciples’ hands.
Additionally, a success rate system notification suddenly lit up in front of Lin An’s eyes.
[There is a 100% chance of increasing your power tenfold by using the Hurricane Sword technique!]
Without any hesitation, Lin An immediately used the Hurricane Sword strike on the attacking disciples.
A gray sword ray that was twenty meters long shot out and cut off all the swords that were slashing at Lin An. In an instant, the charging Green Sword Sect disciples fell to the ground.
“Next time, swing your swords a little harder,” Lin An advised the disciples sarcastically.
Everyone was shocked. Even the Green Sword Sect’s lead disciple quickly put away his sword in shock.
Lin An slowly walked towards him and asked, “What treasure did you find in the pyramid? Take it out and let me have a look.”
All the cultivators present immediately held their breaths. Lin An clearly wanted to return an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth. Since the Green Sword Sect had tried to snatch Lan Qi’s treasure, Lin An would follow their example and steal a treasure from them.
The Green Sword Sect’s lead disciple had obtained an earth-grade magic treasure from one of the pyramids. It wasn’t very good, but Lin An still accepted it and immediately fed it to the Eastern Emperor Bell.
Afterward, he left the scene alongside Lan Qi and Junior Brother Zhou.
[The host’s success rate of reaching the fourth level of the mystic realm by moving forward is 64%]
[The host’s success rate of reaching the fourth level of the mystic realm by moving to the left is 73%]
[The host’s success rate of successfully reaching the fourth level of the mystic realm by moving to the right is 21%]
After leaving the oasis, Lin An followed the success rate system’s instructions to bypass the hidden traps as he led Junior Brother Zhou and Lan Qi towards the fourth level of the Sacred Dragon Mystic Realm.
“Senior Brother Lin An, there hasn’t been a disciple from our Jiuxiao Sect who has ever progressed this far into the fourth level of the mystic realm. Since we’ve already obtained an opportunity, why don’t we leave the Sacred Dragon Mystic Realm and return to the sect? Although the secret treasure is good, it’s also very important that we protect our lives.”
Junior Brother Zhou followed behind Lin An and Lan Qi, constantly persuading the two senior disciples to turn around and leave the dangerous mystic realm.
“I say, Junior Brother Zhou, you’re a man, yet you’ve followed me for so long. Why don’t you have the courage to grow at all?” Lan Qi turned around and scolded her junior counterpart as he walked. “If you continue to talk nonsense, then don’t follow me anymore.”
The fourth level of the Sacred Dragon Mystic Realm differed completely from the third level.
The vast expanse of yellow sand had already disappeared. Instead, the fourth level comprised of tall forest-like primeval trees.
The trees were over fifty meters tall, blocking out the sky and the sun all around the dense area. The sunlight could only faintly penetrate through the layers of leaves to illuminate the forest.
Suddenly, the roar of a ferocious beast came from the front. A tall black wolf covered in long fur emerged and blocked the path of the three Jiuxiao Sect disciples.
Judging from the energy fluctuations from the wolf’s body, it was a mid-stage golden core ferocious beast.
“Look! There’s a crystal on its forehead!” Lan Qi shouted as she scanned the beast with a fascinated look.
“Its body is covered in black fur, and there’s a crystal on its forehead. This is a black crystal wolf! The crystal on its forehead is an ingredient for refining medicine. It’s worth ten thousand spirit stones. Let’s take it down!”
Lin An had already recognized the identity of the black wolf, and he was very excited.
Spirit stones were a common currency in the cultivation world. Ten thousand spirit stones were enough for Lan Qi and Junior Brother Zhou to pay for one year’s living expenses.
The crystal could generate a considerable amount of wealth, and Lan Qi’s eyes immediately lit up.
Once the black crystal wolf locked eyes with the three disciples, it didn’t exhibit any fear. The beast let out another roar before charging towards Lin An.
“Morality demon sealing technique!”
Among the three Jiuxiao Sect disciples, Lin An’s combat strength was the strongest, and he also had the highest defense. Thus, he was the first to bear the brunt of the black crystal wolf’s attack.
