Chapter 148 – Scarlet Moon Demonic Cave (1)
Of the 5, only Zhao Feng knew about arrays and was crowned a “genius array” in the Clan
At this moment, the other 4 turned to look at him. Even the leader Huang Yun, who had just tried to kill Zhao Feng before, put on a sunny smile.
“If I call for help from the Clan, then I won’t be able to get the good stuff from this Inheritance.”
Huang Yun had his own plans. The only thing he could do now was to get Zhao Feng to break the array and enter the place. He would be able to finish the mission and get rewards from the Inheritance.
As for the 30% treasure he had just promised to Zhao Feng, it was all a joke. Huang Yun laughed coldly in his heart; his original goal was to kill Zhao Feng anyway. If he was able to kill the latter in the ground of Inheritance, it would be killing 2 birds with one stone!
Zhao Feng stood in front of the hill as he inspected it with squinted eyes.
“Brother Zhao, I heard that you were called an array genius in the Clan. Do you have the capability to break this array then?” Huang Yun smiled brilliantly and said with respect.
Xu Ren and the others looked expectantly at Zhao Feng.
“Stop trying to get close to me!”
Zhao Feng’s cold voice was like a stick that smashed Huang Yun’s face red and green. However, with the unknown rewards, he couldn’t get angry.
“Brother Huang, Zhao Feng’s breaking the array right now. We shouldn’t bother him.”
Xu Ren looked at Zhao Feng’s concentrated look and he pulled Huang Yun to the side.
Huang Yun was extremely infuriated and his heart was on fire due to anger, but he couldn’t do anything.
Zhao Feng had a mocking expression on and he didn’t put the 30% Huang Yun had promised to heart.
As for the the concealing array in front of him, he couldn’t help but smile. In terms of arrays, Zhao Feng was far better than beginners, but he still had a distance to go to catch up with the older array masters.
If Zhao Feng was to set up a few arrays, he would be nowhere near as fast as the older array masters.
However, if it was just pure ‘destruction’, Zhao Feng had complete confidence!
His mysterious left eye could copy arrays from the Clan such as the Energy Gathering Array in the Thousand Leaf Pond. Even the flaws in the Hollow Buildings’ array had been found out by Zhao Feng, which allowed him to get a High class Mortal skill.
But he pretended that it wasn’t easy.
“This array has been here for at least a couple hundred years. It’s indeed not simple.”
Huang Yun and the others behind him didn’t even dare take a breath, fearing that they might distract him.
After a long time, Zhao Feng took out his Golden Stairs Bow and fired several arrows.
Beng~ Sou- Sou-
The sharp arrows with powerful True Force went straight into the array.
However, after the arrows vanished, the array didn’t change at all.
”Brother Zhao, are you sure you can do it?” Huang Yun was urging him.
Zhao Feng didn’t reply and he stood in the same place.
After a while, the hill began to change.
The hill in front of them suddenly vanished and it was replaced by a cave. On the cave was blood, whose aura was cold and dim.
Everyone stared at the entrance with excitement.
Zhao Feng let out a long breath then said coldly: “Brother Huang! Why aren’t you moving? Could it be that you want someone at the 1st Sky of the Ascended Realm to go first again?”
Huang Yun’s face turned red and he said hesitantly: “are there any more arrays inside?”
“Haha, when Xing Chen was at the 2nd Sky, he said that he accidentally past through the array and got something from it. Could it be that Brother Huang has no confidence in himself?” Zhao Feng laughed lightly.
Huang Yun was extremely cunning, but he was as courageous as a mouse.
“If Brother Huang won’t go first, I will.” Xu Ren was full of expectations as he started to move.
“Wait! It’s better if I go.” Huang Yun smiled confidently and entered the cave.
Xiao Sun and co. didn’t even react in time. Huang Yun’s face changed way too fast. Zhao Feng laughed in his heart, Huang Yun was definitely scared of Xu Ren taking all the treasures first and Xu Ren’s cultivation was the closest to his.
At the same time, Huang Yun didn’t disregard Zhao Feng, this youth at the 1st Sky of the Ascended Realm might be even scarier. After all, no one was normal if they cultivated the Lightning Wind Palm.
The beginning part of the cave was small and it could only fit one person in at a time. After walking for tens of yards, the path in front became bigger.
Zhao Feng took note that there were signs of people working here. As they walked in deeper, the smell of blood and aura of coldness became stronger. The aura made Huang Yun’s heart speed up with joy. If he wasn’t wrong, this was a Wicked Inheritance.
Only Zhao Feng’s eyebrows were pushed together. His left eye jumped a bit faster and he felt that something was wrong. According to his analysis, the chances of a Wicked Inheritance was greater, but there was also another thing that this place could be…
After walking for another hundred yards or so, the stone walls had turned almost blood red.
Xu Ren exclaimed as he looked in front. The cave suddenly became big and a field appeared. On the field, there was a ten yard high statue which gave off an old, ancient aura.
A head was carved on the statue with a scarlet moon was carved on its forehead. The two eyes were blood red as behind the head was a pair of wings that were tens of feet long, like they could cover the heavens.
Facing that scarlet moon demon, Zhao Feng’s heart jumped.
Thinking about his azure hair and azure eye, he had a feeling of ‘Synchronization’
Just the statue alone made the 5 want to bow down.
“Could this be… ?”
Xiao Sun stared at the scarlet moon demon with fear. Zhao Feng could clearly see the cold sweat pouring down Xiao Sun’s body.
“Scarlet Moon Demonic Religion!”
Huang Yun spat out a word at a time as his voice trembled, but no one knew if was in excitement or fear.
Scarlet Moon Demonic Religion!
Zhao Feng’s heart skipped a beat as information about this name came up in his head.
The Patriarch of the Scarlet Moon Demonic Religion was someone unique. Apparently, he got something from an ancient inheritance and he trained in the path of Wickedness, which made him the strongest person in this continent.
The Patriarch created this religion and no force could stop it. Even forces like the Broken Moon Clan and the super Clans of the West continent had no resistance against it.
When the religion reached its peak, it swept across the entire continent. At that time, every force formed a pact to barely defeat the Scarlet Moon Demonic Religion. At that time, those at the True Spirit Realm died and even cultivators at the Origin Core Realm had to come out to fight back against the Scarlet Moon Demonic Religion.
But no one knew whether or not the Patriarch had died.
Some said the patriarch had died, some said he had been sealed, some said he had stolen one’s body and rebirthed, waiting for the day he could rise again.
All in all, the Scarlet Moon Demonic Religion was a forbidden thing on the continent and he was the public enemy of both Clans and mortal empires.
They were one step away from controlling the entire continent, which had never happened in millions of years.
Knowing that this place was connected with the Scarlet Moon Demonic Religion, the group all took cold hiccups, like they had entered the door of death.
“This is probably a small stronghold of the Scarlet Moon Demonic Religion. Since the religion had been destroyed, there shouldn’t be anyone left or else Xing Chen wouldn’t have got out of here alive.” Huang Yun took a cold breath and forced himself to calm down.
The five discussed for a moment, but they decided to go further in. After all, Xing Chen had got out of it safely, which meant that there was nothing threatening here or else the remaining spawn of the religion would’ve killed Xing Chen, even if it the person from the religion had low authority.
Stepping onto the field, they realised that there were 3 streams of man-made blood streams with the middle one being the biggest.
“There’s footsteps in the middle stream meaning that Xing Chen probably went down there. We’ll first kill him and complete the mission before we consider anything else.”
Everyone agreed to Xu Ren’s suggestion and they all headed towards the middle path.
The scent of blood became stronger the deeper they went and the bad feeling became more clear as well.
Huang Yun’s heart was clenched tightly as he surveyed the surroundings.
Finally the stream reached an end.
There was a bloody wall with a near dried blood pond.
“Sire… They actually made it past the array! How could this be possible!?”
Xing Chen sat next to the blood pond and he looked at the group of 5 in fear. It was obvious that he never would have thought that the 5 would be able to break past the array and enter this stronghold of the Scarlet Moon Demonic Religion.
There was another person here?
Zhao Feng and co.’s heart jumped.
If there really was people from the Scarlet Moon Demonic Religion here, they would die without a doubt. Following Xing Chen’s gaze, their attention focused on the Silver Striped Blood Corpse.
The remaining liquid and the fresh blood suddenly rippled and Zhao Feng’s heart skipped a beat.
A terrifying aura appeared the next instant, which almost made everyone spit out blood.
Lin Fan and Xiao Sun couldn’t take the pressure and they half kneeled on the ground.
Inside Zhao Feng’s body, an azure blood circulated which blocked the pressure.
“Youngsters, how dare you disturb my peace! Today, you shall be a blood sacrifice to help me recover… ”
A cold, chilling voice sounded and reverbed around the cave.
The Silver Striped Blood Corpse slowly rose with a pair of blood red eyes. It was hard to imagine how a corpse could become alive. Huang Yun and the others all fell into deep fear and they couldn’t stop trembling.
