Chapter 625: Mirror Lake

Translator: Sigma Editor: Hitesh
After the great change of heaven and earth’s energy, the sun, the moon, and the stars didn’t take turns to shine in the sky anymore. More and more strange mysteries were found in this vast continent.

Alien tribes came out of nowhere and became the overlord of the whole continent. The previous rulers were chased away, and they could only retract their heads, hiding in the Secret Domain.

Human Clan declined while alien tribes thrived. The known rules were broken.

Many forbidden places became vital again, nurturing magical changes, making the Divine Great Land change further.

Ancient civilizations were unsealed, and refuged tribes returned. Many events, which shouldn’t have occurred, revealed themselves one after another.

When Shi Yan listened to Fiery Dragon’s description, he wasn’t so surprised. Another place in the Divine Great Land had exposed its magical mysteries due to the change of heaven and earth.

Fiery Dragon, Fiery Flame, and Silver-horned took the lead. They were really cautious, as they were afraid they could wake the Blood-maned Giant Ape in his territory. Shi Yan took precautions as well. He concealed his aura and calmed down his soul fluctuations, not daring to sense wantonly.

Blood-maned Giant Ape’s level was higher than the Fiery Dragon. In the Perpetual Night Forest, he was a truly dangerous character. Among the beasts of the Monster Clan, his fame was impressive. Usually, no one dared to provoke him.

Of course, Shi Yan didn't want to fight to death with him.

Shi Yan wanted Yang Tian Emperor and Di Shan to escort him. These two people had a profound cultivation base and various experiences. They would be a big help on this trip.

Fiery Dragon didn't want that, but he had to agree begrudgingly.

Anyway, Fiery Dragon was a monster. It was hard for him to go with Shi Yan already. With Yang Tian Emperor and Di Shan accompanying, when other members of the Monster Clan found that, it would be hard for him to establish good relationships with other beasts in the Perpetual Night Forest.

This group of human and monster moved forward. They avoided the beasts which submitted to the Blood-maned Giant Ape and took the way around to reach the target.

Half a day later, Fiery Dragon sighed as he took in the faint smell of water. "We’re almost there."

Shi Yan was struck, his face smiling. "Seems we’re lucky. We didn’t encounter any henchmen of that Blood-maned Giant Ape. Otherwise, we would be in big trouble."

Fiery Dragon shot a strange light from his eyes, looking at Shi Yan oddly. "Hey… Do you…You want to meet Blood-maned, right?"

"Why do you say so?" Shi Yan was surprised.

"If he appears, perhaps you can form a good relationship with him. You want to refine his body, just like you did for me, right?" grunted Fiery Dragon.

Shi Yan was stunned. He smiled broadly. "Well, I do have this thought, but it isn’t strong. I’m not sure if the Blood-maned Giant Ape could be like you. I don't know if he would agree to cooperate with human or not. Haha, I'm good, recently. As long as you and I cooperate well, I don't think I need to deal with Blood-maned."

The message hidden in his words was: If you don't cooperate with me well… I will find Blood-maned and make a deal with him.

Fiery Dragon wasn’t stupid, and he understood that. He mumbled for a while, then spoke up again, more solemnly. "Among the Monster Clan, there aren’t many wise beasts like me. You shouldn’t keep that thought in your head. Otherwise, you can’t have anything, and you will hurt yourself, too."

"Of course, I know Master Fiery Dragon’s the most practical beast, and you are the best ally." Shi Yan laughed.

Fiery Dragon knew Shi Yan actually didn't think what he said. But he ignored it, just laughing as if he had his own ideas.

Fiery Flame and Silver-horned were cautious enough not to intervene them. They kept their mouths shut, listening to the two’s conversation. Light of anxiety sparkled in their eyes – Their bodies hadn’t been refined yet, and they hadn’t shed their mortal skin either. Of course, they didn't dare to cause grudge against Shi Yan. They just wanted to make the relationship between Shi Yan and Fiery Dragon the best.

"Over there," Fiery Dragon suddenly became tense, talking in a low tone. "Be careful. Although that Blood-maned Giant Ape won’t check the place regularly, he does arrange guards. We have to avoid them with our best."

Shi Yan and Yang Tian Emperor nodded, indicating that they understood.

Everybody continued moving further.

All of a sudden, a beast corpse hindered their way.

That beast was around fifteen meters long. It was a giant snake, whose body was covered in flame pattern. The snake had a triangular head. The corpse laid on the ground, as its body was cut off into several pieces. Blood had dried for a long time.

At first glance, Silver-horned couldn’t help but hiss maliciously. "Flame Patterned Viper."

"It didn’t die because of fighting with another beast," Yang Tian Emperor frowned, scrutinizing the flat cut on the snake’s body. He affirmed, "A sharp weapon had chopped it off. Should be an excellent treasure."

"The Fire Patterned Viper is a level 7 beast, as strong as the Sky Realm warrior of Human Clan. As we can see it was killed so easily, its opponent was really tremendous," said Fiery Flame faintly.

"... Humans," Fiery Dragon discolored. He suddenly spoke up, "Someone is here. They are faster than us. That Flame Viper is the Blood-maned Giant Ape’s underling. It guarded this place. It should be the humans who killed the snake."

Yang Tian Emperor and Di Shan darkened their faces, as a murderous aura expanded. Especially Di Shan, his malicious face distorted as if he were an enraged beast. People could even feel his resentment through his aura.

Talking about formidable humans in here, no doubt they were from the seven ancient factions.

These days, the seven ancient factions had been cruel to the Dark Devil Clan and the Winged Clan. Many members of the Winged Clan were killed. Even Di Shan was hurt severely.

"Get in!" Shi Yan observed everywhere, then said coldly

Everybody continued their trip.

Not long after that, they saw more corpses of the beasts. According to Fiery Dragon, these beasts were the Blood-maned Giant Ape’s henchmen. From the traces on the bodies, humans had killed them.

Their Demon Crystals had been snatched. Some were skinned, and some had their bones missing. Apparently, someone wanted to collect cultivating materials from their bodies.

Besides the Human Clan, who would do that?

Raging flame was burning in Fiery Dragon’s, Fiery Flame’s, and Silver-horned’s eyes. They were near to the target, but they were about to reach the limit.

As they were all beasts, although Fiery Dragon and Blood-maned didn't get along well, seeing their clansmen being killed tragically like that – their crystals were taken, along with their skin, their bones – of course, they felt indignant.

Shi Yan frowned, but he still kept silent.

Eventually, a crystal clear lake that looked like a big bright mirror appeared in their visions.

This lake was around ten mu (1 mu = 666.6667 m2). Luxuriant foliage grew densely around the lake. This calm lake looked like a flat mirror with no ripples. From a bird’s eye view, they couldn't see things inside the lake, but only the reflected images.

Energy fluctuations were thick here. A faint fog meandered above the lake, and a fresh scent permeated everywhere that could ease people’s minds.

Shi Yan walked to the lake and then floated aloft to observe. He couldn’t see anything in the bottom of the lake, but only his reflected image. This lake was really a mirror with no ripple. Extremely weird.

"That’s a strange barrier. No matter how hard you look, you can’t see anything down there." Fiery Dragon flew toward him, explaining, "This lake is strange. I've tried to get in, but I was stopped. I couldn't jump down. Blood-maned has tried, too. Apparently, he didn't succeed. No one knows what stays in the bottom of this lake."

"Let me try," Yang Tian Emperor smiled as a thought rose in his head. A flying sword sparkled with cold light and stabbed towards the lake.

Swoosh!

They flying sword flashed, disappearing into the lake. However, it caused no ripple.

Yang Tian Emperor discolored in fright. He was astounded. "My connection with the flying sword was cut off directly!"

"Items without life can get through the lake and arrive at the bottom," Fiery Dragon mocked, "Do you want to try?"

"Okay," Yang Tian Emperor beamed a faint smile. An explosive energy fluctuation expanded from him instantly. His aura surged torrentially as he stormed towards the lake.

Fiery Dragon, Fiery Flame, and Silver-horned jolted up in fear.

Yang Tian Emperor only had the Second Sky of Spirit Realm cultivation base. However, when he burst out his power, his energy fluctuation weren’t different from that of the Peak of Spirit Realm warriors.

Fiery Dragon, Fiery Flame, and Silver-horned were all the hotshots of the Monster Clan. At first glance, they got to know the dangerous features of Yang Tian Emperor.

However, what surprised people more was still to come. Yang Tian Emperor was barging in like a sharp sword, but he was halted when he touched the lake surface. The tranquil lake was pushed inwards a little bit under such a furious impact.

They eyes of Shi Yan and Di Shan shrank as they were all astounded.

Yang Tian Emperor’s energy surged while his abundant aura rippled vehemently, as he was using the secret technique of the Yang family, balling his fist and pounding on the lake like a drilling machine. However, he couldn't break the seal.

"No use," Fiery Dragon shook his head. "You’re strong, indeed… much stronger than I thought. But it won’t work. Even Blood-maned had tried to break the seal here. At that time, he was at Rank 1 Level 9. He couldn’t break it. So, you could never break it."

Yang Tian Emperor was dumbstruck. Then, he quit determinedly. He got back to Shi Yan’s location and shook his head. "Something’s strange, indeed."

Shi Yan kept silent. He squinted, releasing his Soul Consciousness, trying to intrude the lake.

His Soul Consciousness hadn’t even reached the lake, yet a tenacious force had swiped it away. Shi Yan couldn’t get into the lake.

"The Purgatory True Flame is there. The one you know should be there, too." All of a sudden, the Ice Cold Flame sent him its soul thought. "The Earth Flame can pierce through this seal. That’s the supple power of water. You can’t forcefully get through. You can only gather the power of the fiery flame to make a passage."

Right after the Ice Cold Flame sent its thought to Shi Yan, his Soul Consciousness had sensed a faint heat from the lake. Shi Yan tried to sense further, then he could confirm it was the Purgatory True Flame.

Anyway, why was Ye Chang Feng in the lake? He couldn’t figure it out. However, he didn’t want to dig in further. Shi Yan summoned the Earth Flame and asked it to attack the supple power of the water.
