"Not Nu Lang, I got it from the Ice Cold Flame. There's something I need in the Antiquity Lofty Dragon Graveyard. I want to go and see."

"You can’t!"

All of a sudden, Yang Zhuo paled while shaking his head constantly. "Absolutely shouldn't do that! The Antiquity Lofty Dragon Graveyard's the restricted area on the seabed. Throughout thousands of years, no warrior of the Sea Tribes has ever come out alive from there. In the legends, there're treasures that the lofty dragons had collected in that forbidden area. It has attracted numerous hotshots from the Sea Tribes, but I have never heard of anyone who could actually find them. As far as I've known, all had buried their bodies altogether in the dragon's tomb."

"Is that a strange place?"

"I think that Nu Lang wanted to harm you when he told you about the Antiquity Lofty Dragon Graveyard." Yang Zhuo wore a serious face and said with a low tone. "In short, you should never go there. Let alone your Sky Realm cultivation base, even the God Realm warriors couldn't escape alive. Nu Lang has the cultivation base at Third Sky of Spirit Realm, but he doesn't dare to peep in the place."

Shi Yan's complexion changed.

"Why do you want to go there?"

"There’s something essential to me. I want to go there."

"Don't go, and don't you ever mention this again." Yang Zhuo continuously shook his head to refuse. Seemed like he was absolutely terrified of that Lofty Dragon's forbidden area.

As Shi Yan saw his determination, he didn't repeat the matter, but shifted the topic and asked whether he had arranged everything or not. Yang Zhuo hid something in this matter too. He told Shi Yan that several days after he had arranged things in Barren City, he would leave the City together with Shi Yan.

Shi Yan nodded, and didn't say anything further. Then, he left the Yang Family’s house alone.

Afterward, he came to the tavern in the City. The shopkeeper and the waiter greeted him with friendly faces. They served him food and good wine even before he could have time to order. "You're really awesome!" The waiter said with admiration. "After you left, the Yang Family sent someone to collect the fee. I told them what you said to us. Indeed, they didn't argue with us, and said that they would no longer come here for collecting the tax."

The waiter had his eyes brightened as he said with low tone. "Are you really Shi Yan, the one who killed Ming Hai and got the approval from the Water Scorpion Tribe, Bao Wen, and Bao Ke?"

"Yeah."

The young waiter's eyes got brighter. His face was getting more excited. "From now on, when you want to drink, come to us. Haha. I think the shopkeeper won't take your money. Right, sir?"

"Little brother. We didn’t recognize Mt. Taishan (not to recognize a famous person – TL). We didn't know that you are Shi Yan. If we offended you, please forgive us," smiled the shopkeeper.

"You are being too polite," Shi Yan smiled, shook his head then said, "Shopkeeper, you're doing business in Barren City, I guess you're familiar with the situation here, right? I have something I want to ask you. May I?"

"Little brother, you shouldn’t be too polite." The smile on the shopkeeper’s face widened. He slightly bent his body and said, "You can ask for sure. As long as we know it, we will tell you altogether. We won’t hide any small details, either."

"Have you ever heard about the Antiquity Lofty Dragon Graveyard?"

"Ah!"

The shopkeeper changed his visage to a more surprised one. He raked his eyes to his side. After he could confirm that no one was there, he asked hurriedly, "Why do you ask this?"

As Shi Yan saw the other change his attitude, he felt this could work, immediately, and said, "I'm interested in some rumors on the seabed. I've just come here, and I want to know more about the seabed's situations and gain more knowledge. That's why I asked you. If you know and you aren't afraid, please do tell."

The shopkeeper relaxed his complexion when he knew the other was just curious. "The Antiquity Lofty Dragon Graveyard is the mysterious forbidden place in the seabed. Thousands of years have passed, and so many strong warriors undersea want the Lofty Dragon's treasure. They went and probed over the years. Unfortunately, as far as I've known, no one came back alive. Seems there's something really intimidating, which killed everyone who dared to go in."

The information he provided wasn't much different from Yang Zhuo's, as they had just mentioned how terrifying that Antiquity Lofty Dragon Graveyard was and how many famous warriors of the Sea Tribes had died there. They all said that the place wasn't a place that warriors should visit. Since that area was protected by God, anyone who entered would be punished by God.

"Do you know where it is exactly?" Shi Yan went around the bush then came back to his main purpose.

"People said that it's under the Vault of Heaven Sea Area. But I'm not sure about the exact location. Only someone who has gone there could know. But they are all dead." The shopkeeper shook his head and sighed. "The Lofty Dragons were the overlord of all kinds of beasts undersea. Of course, their graveyard won't be ordinary. It should have unimaginable dangers. No visitors can escape death."

"Oh!"

Shi Yan nodded and mused for a while, then said, "After I leave, in two more days, please come to the Yang Family and tell them I’m going to the Vault of Heaven to find some stuff. Tell the Master of the Yangs in Barren City, Yang Zhuo."

"Are you going to the Antiquity Lofty Dragon Graveyard?" The shopkeeper and the young waiter were flurried all of a sudden.

"Haha. Help me deliver the message. Don't ask too much." Shi Yan smiled, left a crystal and then turned into a beam of light shooting towards the Vault of Heaven Sea Area.

"Boss!" The young waiter was worried, and said hurriedly, "If he goes to the Lofty Dragon’s forbidden area, he can’t come back alive! I think we shouldn't wait longer. We should tell the master of the Yangs now."

"Yes. I'm going to the Yang Family's!" The shopkeeper was in a hurry, too. He answered the young waiter then left.

Fifteen minutes later.

Yang Zhuo's face darkened. He continuously shook his head and muttered, "Why did he not listen to my advice? Why is he so stubborn? Young men who don't listen to old men would suffer a huge loss. Shi Yan, you kiddo, do you think that you can be lucky forever?"

Seven days later. Shi Yan arrived at a sea area under the Vault of Heaven Sea Area. The seawater there was crystal clear blue. Fish were moving in schools, and beasts could be seen here and there. At first, he had just met low-level beasts at level three or four. The closer he got to the Vault of Heaven Sea Area, the higher the level of the beasts was. Searching this sea area for a while, he still hadn't found the Lofty Dragon Graveyard. But he ended up having some conflicts with some daring beasts.

Beasts at level six and seven weren't his match now. Facing Shi Yan, their only consequences were to be skinned, and their demon crystals be taken.

After spending several days under the Vault of Heaven Sea Area, he still had nothing. Without the exact direction, it seemed not easy at all to find the Antiquity Lofty Dragon’s Graveyard. Today, he saw a giant fort built with silver stone. Many members of the Sea Tribes were working and living in there.

His eyes brightened. He wanted to enter the city. Walking around the fort for a while, he found out that the Sea Tribes members inside the fort were mostly from the Silver Shark Clan.

Shi Yan stopped a member of the Jade Clam Tribe outside the fort.

Among the tribes of the Sea Tribes, the Jade Clam Tribe was one of the weakest. Members of the Jade Clam Tribe had a giant shell on their back, just like the turtles. Their fleshy body was in between the shells. People said that their cultivating process was arduous. None of the Jade Clam Tribe's member had ever reached the Spirit Realm.

This Jade Clam’s member was a young female. She looked pretty with red lips and white teeth.

After she was blocked by Shi Yan, she didn't fluster, just frowned at him coldly and said, "Human, why do you come to the Silver Stone Fort? Don't you know that the Silver Stone Fort's the Silver Shark Clan's territory? You damn human, bet you're planning to mess up with our Sea Tribes. I'm telling you, Yin Hui, the patriarch of the Silver Shark Clan, is in the Silver Stone Fort now. Death is a certain consequence if you dare to provoke us here."

"Silver Stone Fort," frowned Shi Yan.

He had heard from Li Feng that the Silver Shark Clan’s territory had been divided into some parts. The Silver Stone Fort was just one of them. It was the place where an elder of the Silver Shark Clan cultivated.

Many weak tribes were living around the Silver Stone Fort, and the Jade Clam Tribe was one of them.

Those tribes didn’t have warriors strong enough to protect the tribes. Their life was a little bit difficult, so they had to depend on stronger tribes like the Silver Shark Clan. Every year, they had to offer the Silver Shark Clan massive wealth to receive the protection from the stronger tribe. That was how they could survive on the seabed.

"Yin Hui’s staying in the Silver Shark Fort?"

"Scared now?" The female member of the Jade Clam Tribe sneered then said arrogantly, "You’d better get out of here as soon as possible. The seabed isn’t a place where human warriors could poke your nose in. Harrumph, Silver Stone Fort is Cru’s cultivating place. He’s the elder of the Silver Shark Clan, and he has just entered the Spirit Realm. Patriarch Yin Hui came here to congratulate him. Many strong warriors of the Sea Tribes are gathering in the Silver Stone Fort, too. If you dare to provoke us, I’m sure you’ll see enough." This member of the Jade Clam Tribe had a shallow cultivation base, but her tone was cold and arrogant. She was using the connection with the Silver Shark Clan to intimidate Shi Yan, so she didn't fear.

Shi Yan burst out laughing, but he didn’t quarrel with her. He contemplated then said, "Me too, I’m going to cheer for elder Cru. Shall we go together?"

"I don't walk the same road as humans." The female member of the Jade Clam Tribe rolled her eyes, threw him a malicious look, put on the serious face and crossed him, swimming towards the Silver Stone Fort.

Shi Yan shook his head and smilingly followed her.

"Human, stop!"

He hadn’t even approached the Silver Stone Fort gate when a member of the Silver Shark Clan shouted, pointing his weapon at him. He seemed to ready fight Shi Yan at any minute if the other didn’t follow his words. "I've told you. Humans like you can't enter the Silver Stone Fort." The Jade Clam Tribe's member mocked him then chinned up, entering the Silver Stone Fort.
