Chapter 128: News
“There’s even more here!”
They turned over the rocks in the mud to reveal several more pieces of bone scraps.
Then they turned and flew away.
“Could it possible that we’ve just found some ancient secret?”
“What secrets could there be in the ancient times? If it was really something ancient, such bones would have crumbled into dust a long time ago.”
“Hey, do you think it could be the bones of the previous generation?”
“That’s very likely!”
The looks on the faces of the group of people changed dramatically. Their hands trembled as they held the bones.
“This his how our senior’s bones look like?”
“Maybe he’s from another part of the world!”
Upon coming to that realization, the group of people looked solemn.
They were filled with great sorrow.
The bones had been shattered into pieces.
The death must have been tragic.
If it truly was the senior who had died, then it was possible that the immortal devil was still alive.
Only a living expert could chop a dead body into so many devastating pieces.
Around the pit of prenatal qi in Muguang Mountain.
White paper offerings blew in the wind.
Large bouquets of flowers were placed on the dirt in front of the pit of prenatal qi.
A row of young men and women kneeled in front of the pit.
Chu Qing A’Mu a cold look. “A’mu, is it true that no one has been to the pit of prenatal qi in the last eight months?”
They hadn’t been back for eight months.
No one had come back for years!
Eight months ago, the old devil of Qianyuan Sacred Ground came to attack and kill the people here.
If no one had been in the pit of prenatal qi for eight months….
Chu Qing didn’t want to think about what went on.
A’Mu lowered his head and whispered, “Yes.”
He didn’t dare to raise his head and look up at the crowd.
“Are you sure?” Two lines of tears rolled down from the corners of Chu Qing’s eyes.
“Well… Since there was no one in the pit of prenatal qi for eight months…The cave in the pit collapsed, the prenatal qi dried up and the mud came gushing in. I’m still looking for…” A’mu choked up.
“Grandpa, he deserves his fate!” Tingting said.
Tears involuntarily gushed out.
She wiped her eyes with the back of her hand, but the tears kept flowing.
Zhou Hua squatted on the ground, her hands covering her face.
“Let’s look again, maybe the senior is still alive,” Gongsun Yang said with a bit of hope.
“Yes! Maybe it was someone else that fought with the old devil. Senior is an expert, so maybe he escaped at the beginning of the battle.”
“No need to comfort me,” Tingting said through gritted teeth. She waved her hand dismissively and flew away.
Hundred Spirits Valley Xia Family Forbidden Place.
Tingting was anxious.
She kept searching around the forbidden valley.
“Grandpa, are you playing hide-and-seek with Tingting?”
She continued: “Ok, Tingting has lost. You can come out now!”
“Grandpa, I still want to hear your stories…”
Outside the Liu family in Hundred Spirit Valley.
Tingting suddenly squatted on the ground next to a pile of garbage.
Her crying sounded like a cuckoo wailing.
Rippling through the valley.
Tingting laid down on a huge boulder in the valley. Her hair blew in the wind.
Every now and then.
Her chocking cries echoed loudly through the valley.
Outside the Prenatal Qi pit.
A’mu dug a huge pit using his sword.
“This is the sword given to me by Sir. It’s a sword as powerful as him!”
A’mu placed the sword into a box, then lowered the box into the pit.
“This is the bottle of elixir given to me by Sir!”
Zhou Hua held out a bunch of bottles and put them into the pit.
“These are the books that Sir gave me. They taught me gentleness, courage, wisdom, and accompanied me through that sad time.”
Chu Qing placed a pile of books in the pit.
Other young men and women continued to place more items into the pit.
When everyone was done paying their respects, they covered the pit in soil.
When the grave was completed. A’Mu used his sword qi to cut off a huge slab of stone and carved words into it.
The tombstone was erected.
There were cries in front of the grave.
Meanwhile, on another ruin on Muguang Mountain.
Three people from the War Temple looked expectedly at Xu Xiao.
Xu Xiao picked up the broken bones and squinted his eyes for a closer look.
“Elder Xu, what’s wrong? What kind of bones are these?”
“It’s a human bone!” Xu Xiao’s lips trembled in anticipation as he studied the bone over and over again.
He couldn’t help but break out a smile.
“What? Human bones?”
“Human bones aren’t this hard. How’s that possible?”
Suddenly, Xu Xiao burst out in laughter. “Hahahaha!”
He tossed the bone aside and laughed wildly, hands holding his stomach.
“Senior Xu, what’s wrong?”
The three people were confused.
“Senior, are you alright? Tell us, what kind of person has such hard bones.”
The three men were confused and just looked at their senior.
Xu Xiao continued to laugh maniacally.
“Has he gone crazy?”
“Maybe… He looks like he’s either full of joy or full of sorrow!”
The men just looked at Xu Xiao and waited for him to settle back down.
They were puzzled.
They could only guess what the bones had to do with Xu Xiao.
After quite some time had passed, Xu Xiao’s laughter finally stopped.
Do you guys know whose bones this is?” Xu Xiao asked, trying desperately to control the smile on his face.
“Whose?” The three people, stretching their necks, were looking forward to it.
Whose bones could it be? And why did it make an expert like Xu Xiao burst out laughing like a madman?
What was the reason for him behaving like this?
Xu Xiao could barely contain his laughter when he finally replied, “It’s from that old immortal! Ha ha ha!”
“What?” The three people were shocked.
They couldn’t believe what they heard.
Xu Xiao stopped laughing and explained carefully, “The old ancestor of Qian Yuan Sacred Ground, the old undead demon who finally became a devil.”
“That can’t be right! He’s dead? And shredded to pieces? Are you pulling our legs?”
The three people froze for a long time as they digested this news.
Even then, they still couldn’t believe what they just heard.
The old devil had been alive for so long! Even their great-great-grandfather hadn’t been born yet!
Xu Xiao held out the bone and pointed to it. “Just look closely at the bones. It’s so hard. Who else but an expert from the Virtual Realm can have bones like this?”
“Could it be someone else?”
“The other senior was at least human. His bones could only be jade. And this one’s bones are gold and black.”
“What do you mean?”
“The golden parts of the bone are the result of qi entering the body, while the black parts are naturally demonic qi,” Xu Xiao explained.
The three men finally understood. They let out a long sigh of relief, all at the same time.
That old thing was really dead.
They were out looking for the bones of their ancestor and instead, found the bones of the old undead demon.
What a pleasant surprise.
“Now we know for a fact that the old demon is dead. But we still don’t know if the Senior made it….”
“Keep looking,” Xu Xiao said. “If we find the senior’s bones then we will bury them.”
“And what if we can’t find it?”
“If we can’t find his remains, it means that he may still be alive.”
Despite their recent discovery, the main objective of their search was still ongoing.
It’ was very important.
But now that they’ve determined the death of the old demon, the three warriors looked much more relaxed.
“I can’t believe that it was the old demon who died.”
“I never thought there would be such a powerful person who could defeat the demon. It’s a pity I never got the chance to meet him.”
“I have a feeling that the senior might still be alive. How could he defeat the demon otherwise?”
“Maybe they both died at the same time? Maybe they both performed their finishing moves.”
“No! If they died together and were beaten so shattered, then the old undead corpses could not be so concentrated.”
The more they thought about it and analyzed the situation, the more certain they were that the senior was still alive.
“So where did the senior go?”
“For someone as powerful as he is… it’d be impossible for us to find him if he doesn’t want to be found.”
The three men continued searching for two more months.
They finally returned to Xu Xiao.
“What you said might be right. He doesn’t want to be found. If that’s the case, then we don’t need to try so hard to look for him. We should just go back and do our own things.”
Half a month later.
The War Temple spread the news.
That old demon of Qian Yuan Sacred Ground had been killed.
He died during the great battle at Muguang Mountain, and was defeated by a human expert.
The whole world was taken aback.
“Anther human expert?”
