Chapter 1342: The Divine Feather of Frost
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Sensing the danger, the two divine spirits hidden in Su Yu’s body began revolving rapidly, and the energy contained within them gushed out to charge the Ice Blue Divine Armor covering him.
While it was not activated, the Divine Armor could resist a blow from a deity of the level of tribe kings.
If activated, it could resist the assault from a Level Four deity.
The surface of Su Yu’s body radiated an ice blue brilliance, which was dreamily resplendent.
The fused Violet Gold Rings of Yin Yang took a whirl, and abruptly encircled Su Yu’s body. In the meantime, the fused rings shrank rapidly, nearly crushing Su Yu’s waist.
However, the ice-blue brilliance on Su Yu’s body flickered intensely in and out of existence, and dodged off the Violet Gold Rings, making them unable to keep exerting compression.
“The Ice Blue Divine Armor of Shangguan Feiyu!” Xue Xiaoman’s beautiful eyes turned serious and blazed with a murderous shine as her hands rapidly weaved signs.
All of a sudden, the Violet Gold Rings of Yin Yang shrank even more quickly, forcing the ice blue divine brilliance to recoil.
Su Yu was stunned. The danger of this item really overrode the Combined Strike Technique of the Black Flame Immortal and the Thunderbolt Immortal, so that even the Ice Blue Divine Armor couldn’t completely rival it.
Without hesitation, Su Yu’s eyes shone, and two whiffs of dark grey mist filled them. He growled in a low voice, “Spell of Incubus!”
As his words were spoken, intangible wave patterns disappeared into the Void and took a sweep in all directions.
How could Xue Xiaoman ever expect that a human like Su Yu would be proficient in sorcery?
She was caught unawares and was captured in a nightmare. However, her eyelids were leaping rapidly and she seemed to be on the verge of awakening.
Su Yu’s eyes gleamed, and with a flip of his hand, he retrieved a long arrow of the Golden Flames Forbidden Wood.
The arrow was like a ray of light, heading straight for Xue Xiaoman’s forehead lightning-fast. In the next moment, she could be killed.
However, right at that moment, a Buddha mantra sounded from between Xue Xiaoman’s brows. It was so deafening and powerful that it could shake people’s hearts.
Amidst the sound waves, the long arrow was fixed just in front of her forehead, trembling restlessly, as if it had encountered an invisible barrier.
In the meantime, the Buddha mantra jolted Xue Xiaoman from her coma.
A second of befuddlement flitted across Xue Xiaoman’s face, quickly replaced by shock and rage. While retreating swiftly, she took out a snowy white feather sculpted from ice.
“Snow God’s Frozen Feather!” Xue Xiaoman raised a hand, and the feather soared into the Void. Gusts of shockingly freezing wind were unleashed from the feather.
After a moment of stalemate, the trembling arrow of the Golden Flames Forbidden Wood was eventually blown off track, flying towards the edge of the sky.
The freezing winds did not relent, excavating the entire valley from the ground and sending it flying towards the sky.
If it were any ordinary place, sending a mountain flying would not be something exceptional, but this was the Myriad Bone Mountain.
Powerful individuals of the deity level could not even take flight here, but now the whole mountain was whisked away. It proved just how immensely powerful the freezing winds of the feather were!
Su Yu’s heart skipped a beat. He had recoiled quickly before the Golden Flames Forbidden Wood arrow was released.
Even so, the edge of the freezing gust still touched him.
Bone-piercing iciness invaded his body, freezing his limbs and blood, as well as his divine energy. He was sent flying by the vast force of the wind and collapsed brutally at the mountainside.
Strangely, a pit was formed at the mountainside from the collision. Along with the Violet Gold Rings of Yin Yang, Su Yu plummeted into it.
Xue Xiaoman flew over, and there was a look of shock on her face as she stared at the pit. “The belly of the Myriad Bone Mountain is actually empty?”
Then an icy gleam flickered in her eyes, and Xue Xiaoman went inside.
She was greeted by a profound, boundless black abyss that reached all the way to the bottom of the Myriad Bone Mountain.
She closed her pretty eyes slowly and tried to locate the Violet Gold Rings of Yin Yang. Xue Xiaoman then went after them immediately.
It took Xue Xiaoman the better half of an hour to reach the bottom of the abyss by flight.
“Having fallen from such a great height, he can’t possibly be alive anymore, can he?” Xue Xiaoman thought to herself. Unless Su Yu had the white ribbon of frost like her, which enabled him to fly, he had to be dead.
The bottom of the abyss was full of white bones that were scattered all over the place, most of them showing signs of decay.
“Skeletal remains of Mortal Fairies,” Xue Xiaoman muttered with indifference. She wasn’t interested in searching what they had left behind, but cast her sparkling eyes on the central area of the bottom of the abyss.
Based on her estimation, that was where Su Yu had to be.
With a flash of her dainty figure, she scurried over as quickly as she could.
The sight that greeted her was a mountain of bones ten thousand feet in height.
Countless immaculate skeletons with a texture as smooth as jade were piled on top of one another.
Despite being covered in layers of dust, the boundless divine brilliance was hard to be concealed. The divinity left behind was extremely magnificent!
The white ribbon of frost around Xue Xiaoman trembled. It had been perturbed and could no longer support her flight.
Xue Xiaoman landed quickly. All of a sudden, heavy, enormous oppression came striking at her, rendering her unable to move.
The tremendous pressure in this spot was infinitely greater than outside the mountain!
As she gazed at the Myriad Bone Mountain, Xue Xiaoman’s eyes flickered with a scorching bright light. “Could this be the legendary Grave of All Deities hidden inside the Myriad Bone Mountain?”
Xue Xiaoman was surprised and delighted by the Grave of All Deities, a place all deities yearned to find. She came across this place by chance while hunting down Su Yu.
“Haha, this is my good fortune!” Xue Xiaoman couldn’t help but chuckle softly. She opened up her storage space, wanting to take away the skeletal remains of the deities concealed in this place.
“With their remains and legacies, would the Northern Xue Nation still be subject to the Empire? We could substitute it!”
However, some voices sounded from above, as if a conversation was going on.
“Finally we have passed the formation at the summit and have managed to get inside the belly of the mountain! If the legend is right, the Grave of All Deities is just inside the mountain,” a bright, clear voice resonated in the echoing space.
Xue Xiaoman was stunned. With her sensitive senses, she could perceive that there were a handful of intruders, and the energy of one of them was extremely powerful!
Her beautiful eyes flickered, and Xue Xiaoman ducked into the Grave of All Deities in a flash.
With the myriad of divinities in the Grave of All Deities, she concealed her own scent perfectly.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
A few streaking noises sounded across the air, and ten figures arrived, one after another.
Nine of them were Level Six deities, only one of them was a Level Five deity, which was equivalent to the tribe kings’ level.
That man was clad in the skin of a beast and his face was covered in colorful patterns. His eyes were profound and ferocious, like those of a dangerous animal.
He stared at the mountain of skeletons, his eyes ablaze with searing heat. “The Grave of All Deities! We have found it!”
A creature beside him, who was also wearing an animal skin, said, “Congratulations, Grand Wizard, on finally finding the Grave of All Deities. The Holy Son will be very pleased.”
The Grand Wizard nodded deeply, his eyes greedy. “As long as even one deity in ten had left their legacy behind, it is enough to boost the Saint’s power, making him override the Saintess. Today, all of us here will be great contributors!”
The creature wearing animal skin was delighted. He asked, “What about Heishan and the two others?”
“Them? Humph! They haven’t even come until now. I’m merciful enough not to question them,” The Grand Wizard remarked with dissatisfaction.
Staring at the Grave of All Deities before him, he said, “Take the skeletal remains of the deities immediately!”
Amidst the remains, Xue Xiaoman’s face had turned very solemn. She knew who this must be. It was the wizard of the Moonwatch Sect!
A Grand Wizard, even!
The Sect was an enigmatic and secret group, and hardly any creature of the god realm could defeat one of them in a duel.
Besides, this wizard was followed by nine others!
If they found her, she would be in trouble.
Her heart sank, and Xue Xiaoman ventured further into the depths of the remains soundlessly. Due to the disturbance caused by the divinities, she could no longer confirm the location of the Violet Gold Rings of Yin Yang.
All of a sudden, Xue Xiaoman touched something soft. With a jolt, she thought that it was the corpse of some deity whose physical body had not decayed completely.
However, when she felt the warmth of the body, she realized it belonged to someone alive.
“You!” The realization struck Xue Xiaoman suddenly. It was Su Yu!
Before she could cry out in shock, two strong hands held her down.
One hand clasped her mouth tightly, stopping her from making a sound. The other hand pressed her body down, preventing her from moving.
Xue Xiaoman gasped in shock. In the darkness, all she could see was a pair of exceptionally bright eyes staring profoundly at her.
At that moment, a voice sounded in her ear, “If you want to stay alive, keep your mouth shut now.”
Xue Xiaoman was outraged, but as she thought of the ten disciples of the Moonwatch Sect out there, chills of dread filled her heart.
She knew that it was not the right time to kill Su Yu, so she suppressed her murderous urge and shrugged off Su Yu’s hand, staring coldly at him.
“Why aren’t you dead yet?” Xue Xiaoman delivered her word through telepathy.
Su Yu did not answer.
Xue Xiaoman creased her dainty brows. She was about to ask again, but she was taken aback. Pointing at Su Yu, she questioned through telepathy again, “Where are the Violet Gold Rings of Yin Yang?”
Right now, the Violet Gold Rings of Yin Yang, which had bound Su Yu, were nowhere to be seen!
Only then did Su Yu reply without any emotion, “Who knows? Perhaps they dropped off on my way here.”
“Nonsense!” Xue Xiaoman’s eyes were filled with great rage. Furiously, she said, “I clearly sensed them. The Violet Gold Rings of Yin Yang have fallen into this Grave of All Deities along with you!”
Su Yu said, “Look for them then. Why are you asking me?”
Xue Xiaoman sneered, “I’m saying that you have hidden the Violet Gold Rings of Yin Yang! Quick, hand them to me!”
Su Yu stayed silent for a moment and took out a Violet Gold Ring in the shape of a supreme pole. It was the guardian Emperor-based Saint Artifact of the Xue Nation.
When she saw it, Xue Xiaoman’s cold smile flickered. “I’ll teach you a lesson later!”
She had some doubts in her mind. How did Su Yu free himself from the restraint of the Violet Gold Rings of Yin Yang? However, since the Rings had returned, it didn’t really matter.
Reaching out, she quickly took the Violet Gold Rings back.
The instant she touched the Violet Gold Rings, Xue Xiaoman’s face changed dramatically. The Violet Gold Rings of Yin Yang no longer bore the slightest trace of the royal house of the Northern Xue Nation!
This item had been baptized by the divine blood of the King of the Northern Xue Nation, leaving behind an imprint for all its descendants.
As long as the blood of the royal house flowed in them, they could use the power of bloodline to activate the Rings.
Now, however, the royal bloodline energy in the Violet Gold Rings of Yin Yang had vanished completely!
Despite her shock, Xue Xiaoman took note of the location where she was. Was it possible that the divinity in this place was so tremendous that it overpowered the royal energy?
Her misgivings were gradually cleared. With a flip of her palm, Xue Xiaoman hid away the Violet Gold Rings of Yin Yang.
With a turn of her gorgeous head, she fixed her stare on Su Yu. “Tell me now, how are you still alive? And how did you break free from the Violet Gold Rings?”
Su Yu was totally indifferent, looking like he couldn’t be bothered to answer her at all.
Xue Xiaoman was exasperated. However, in such a situation, she dared not act recklessly.
The wizards out there had begun to gather the skeletal remains of the deities, and the slightest movement she made would be noticed.
She stopped paying attention to Su Yu. Xue Xiaoman turned her hand and retrieved the Divine Feather of Frost, pinching it between her fingers.
Her delicate body was flexed and her eyes focused intently, like a cheetah that was about to charge and launch a fatal blow on the enemy.
As more and more remains of the deities were collected by the wizards, she and Su Yu began to be exposed, little by little.
Finally, when a skeleton blocking them from sight was removed, thoroughly exposing them, Xue Xiaoman’s eyes flashed and her fingers whisked the feather in her hand forcefully.
