Chapter 55: This Is The Last Time
Sure enough, after the few people entered, there was no sound anymore, as if they were suddenly swallowed. In the blink of an eye, the remaining devil cultivators also disappeared, but the murderous field seemed to be expanding. The surrounding vegetation died instantly, and the sacrifices on the altar were swallowed as well.
Chi Yi and Yan Gui's face changed slightly, they exchanged glances, but kept quiet.
“What… what's going on?” The other guards from Jiang Sect were very surprised upon seeing a large group of living people suddenly disappear in front of them. However, none of them planned to go in and take a look, they weren't looking for death! Those who went in earlier were the elders of various sects, their strength was much more powerful than other people, if even they were swallowed, then other people wouldn't stand a chance.
“Why are you guys still here? Go notify the Great Elder.” Chi Yi's face sank as he ordered coldly.
“Yes.” The guards turned hurriedly and flew towards Qian Li Town. People dying wasn't a problem but if anything happened to the things underneath, then it would be a big problem, especially since they were already instructed billions of times before. If anything happened to the things underneath then their lives would be at risk.
As for what was under the altar, where did this murderous aura come from, no one knew at all except those old devil heads who had been living for more than a thousand years.
The Great Elder of Jiang Sect (TLN: the old boss from previous chapters), who had been staying in the black shop, was also taken aback after hearing the description of the guard. He thought to himself, could it be that someone had broken in?
But then he denied his doubt. There were at least a thousand traps in the tomb, even if someone broke in, it would be difficult to get out alive.
In fact, he only knew that there was a set of battle armour left over from ancient times in there. As for how it looked or who left it in there, no one knew the answer because no one could ever break into the tomb.
Five hundred years ago, four old devil heads teamed up and broke through the tomb entrance but Who knew that before they could enter the tomb, one of them was instantly caught by an invisible trap that dissolved half of his body, not only that, the devil's cultivation heart was also swallowed, causing him to be unable to cultivate anymore. The remaining three devils, who didn't believe in traps, continued to rush in. In the end, the last person worked his entire body and finally broke into the tomb. Unfortunately, he also failed to get out alive. No one knew what happened to the person who entered the tomb.
“Send someone to seal off the altar. Without my order, if anyone dares to speak, kill them immediately.” The Great Elder of Jiang Sect knocked his pipe on the stone slab, his expression increasingly gloomy.
The guard took the order and walked out. Suddenly, he saw a man holding a young woman in a white robe walking towards the black shop.
“Young Master Mo, why aren't you hosting the Devil Killer Tribulation Refination Compet.i.tion?” Mo Ye immediately heard this question from the old man at the moment he stepped into the black shop, carrying the still unconscious Qi Huan. Although Mo Ye changed his appearance, he did not deliberately hide his aura so it was easy to recognize him.
Mo Ye tilted his head and glanced at him. He saw only three fingers on his right hand. He couldn't help but stop and replied with a smile, “Why, isn't the reason obvious, Great Elder?”

“Hmph, you know this woman's ident.i.ty, you better not mix with her too much. Those people are all staring at you.” Although the Great Elder's tone was obviously unpleasant, it was mostly advice for Mo Ye's sake, he didn't mean to reprimand.
Of course, if the Great Elder really caught the flying snake one day, he wouldn't know if he or the snake would be dissected.
When Mo Ye's figure disappeared in the stairwell, the Great Elder reached out to touch the bag of tobacco at his waist, and then he was stunned. It's not there! The bag that was still around his waist earlier was gone!
The little fox lay casually on Mo Ye's shoulder with a cloth bag hung at his paw, which was full of tobacco leaves.
Mo Ye carried Qi Huan back to his room and let her sit on the bed against the wall, then he put one hand on her pulse, and his face became a little gloomy.
At first, he thought he was just going to get the bone armour back, and anyway that place was his own tomb, so there shouldn't be any problems to bring Qi Huan over with him, but he didn't expect something to happen in the end.
The devil cultivators had been feeding the bone armour with human blood all these years, causing an unbearable murderous aura to acc.u.mulate in the bone armour. Those murderous auras had no effect on him, but the aura hurt Qi Huan.
Even if Mo Ye made a quick move earlier, he couldn't be sure if Qi Huan's spirit had been eroded by the murderous aura or not.
Looking at Qi Huan's peaceful sleeping face, Mo Ye's slender fingers slowly caressed her bloodless, pale face, leaning over and gently saying in her ear, “I'm sorry, this will be the last time.”
