Gaohe Yan released Divine Thought into the bag. After a while, a palm-sized gray triangular stone tablet appeared in his hand.
“Venerable Yan, this is…” The black-robed old man looked at the tablet with doubtful eyes.
“This is the eternal seal stone used by the ancient cultivators to preserve the precious jade slip so that it will not be damaged by the passage of time. It requires a special method to open it.” A hint of joy flashed in Gaohe Yan’s eyes as he explained to the black-robed old man.
Immediately after, Gaohe Yan chanted and launched several black lights into the gray stone tablet.
The gray tablet emitted a dazzling light with gray runes appearing on the surface. The runes flashed and disappeared. The gray stone tablet turned into dust after a click sound, revealing a white jade slip inside.
Several other members of the Gaohe Family were surprised. Liu Ming also showed admiration in his eyes in the valley below.
After Gaohe Yan checked the jade slip with Divine Thought, he nodded and said, “This is it. Within the jade scroll lies the location of the tomb of the Sky Cry Demon Lord.”
As soon as Gaohe Yan said that, the black-robed old man and the others were thrilled. However, Gaohe Yan was calm instead, seemingly in deep thought.
“Venerable Yan, since we have found the map, let’s go and explore the place.” The black-robed old man said excitedly, and the others also echoed.
“It is not that easy. The Sky Cry Demon Lord was prominent. There must be defenses in his tomb. According to the jade slip, the tomb is filled with dangers. It would be too dangerous for the 5 of us.” Gaohe Yan shook his head and said.
“Venerable Yan, do you intend to find someone else to go with us?” The black-robed old man asked with a gleam in his eyes.
“That’s right.” Gaohe Yan nodded.
“However, aren’t we required to share part of the harvest in the tomb with other people? Could it be that Venerable Yan is planning to…” The black-robed old man frowned, then he said in a low voice with flickering eyes.
“I have no such plan. Besides, the tomb of the Sky Cry Demon Lord is nothing more than a trifle. Our spies in the central imperial and the Liu Family have just sent us important news. Cultivators from the central imperial and the Liu Family are all heading to the Inner Abyss…” As Gaohe Yan said up to this point, he communicated with voice transmission.
After a while, the others were all shocked.
“I can’t believe it. Venerable Yan, do you want to…” The black-robed old man said.
“That’s right. Only 5 members of our Gaohe Family entered the Demon Abyss this time, so we are weaker than the central imperial and the Liu Family. Our Gaohe Family must not lag behind. We can only cooperate with other forces to challenge the Inner Abyss together.” Gaohe Yan said in a firm tone.
The others looked at each other a few times and didn’t object to the idea.
” Venerable Yan, which family do you want to ask for help?” The black-robed old man asked.
“If we want to contend against the central imperial and the Liu Family, we must choose a powerful family to help.” Gaohe Yan smiled slightly as he took out a hexagonal disk array.
As Gaohe Yan chanted, a black array emerged from the disk array, which looked like a communication array.
Gaohe Yan launched a series of runes into the array.
After a flash, the runes had vanished.
Then, the 5 members of the Gaohe Family landed on a mountain below and sat cross-legged, getting closer to Liu Ming and the other girl.
Liu Ming was anxious. He chanted and channeled the Che Huan Totem to its limit.
Liu Ming and Zhao Qianying glanced at each other. They both saw a look of worry in each other’s eyes.
The news about the Demon Abyss Tower in the Inner Abyss spread. The prominent families began to flock toward the Inner Abyss. As a result, their trip to the Inner Abyss might be more difficult than expected.
Time passed slowly. Several members of the Gaohe Family waited there. Liu Ming and Zhao Qianying didn’t dare to move the slightest. Fortunately, Liu Ming’s spiritual power was profound, so there was no problem channeling Che Huan Totem for a long time.
Half a day later, a green cloud was coming from the distant sky.
Gaohe Yan’s face was filled with joy. He immediately flew up with the other 4 to welcome them.
The green cloud dissipated, revealing a group of 5 individuals.
Liu Ming’s eyes flashed. He had a vague memory of these demons. When entering the Demon Abyss, he recalled hearing about Old Man Jackdaw and his party.
“Mr. Gao He, I can see the joy on your face. I’m sure you’ve made quite a remarkable discovery. Why did you invite me here?” Old Man Jackdaw’s eyes flickered with a hint of green light as he looked at Gaohe Yan. He let out a light chuckle and asked.
From the looks of it, the two were quite familiar with each other.
“I haven’t gained much yet, but I have an opportunity. I’ve obtained a map of a hidden treasure in the secret realm. Are you interested in exploring it with us?” Gaohe Yan chuckled and spoke directly.
“Treasure!? Is that true?” Old Man Jackdaw’s eyes flashed when he heard those words. A trace of greed flashed in his eyes.
Although the Demon Abyss was said to have many treasures, there were very few unique treasures. Any hidden treasure was a great opportunity.
“Of course, why would I lie to you? The map is here. I just got it. It’s still warm in my hand.” Gaohe Yan burst into laughter and casually threw the gray jade slip directly to Old Man Jackdaw.
Old Man Jackdaw was startled. He looked at Gaohe Yan in surprise, then he read the jade slip.
“Sky Cry Demon Lord! I have heard of this person. He was a Mystic Comprehending State powerhouse during the Shuo Feng Dynasty. I never expect that he died in this Demon Abyss, leaving a tomb filled with treasures!” Old Man Jackdaw revealed a look of surprise.
“Hehe, I wonder if Mr. Jackdaw is interested in going in together?” Gaohe Yan said with a faint smile.
“Since there are treasures, I’m naturally interested. Why are you so generous to share a piece of the pie with me, Mr. Gao He? Although you and I have built friendships in the past, you must have another ulterior motive. There’s no need for pleasantries. Please speak bluntly.” Old Man Jackdaw returned the jade slip to Gaohe Yan and said with a twinkle in his eyes.
“Mr. Jackdaw, you’re still as forthright as ever. I won’t beat around the bush then. I have a request, but this matter is a tremendous opportunity for both of us…” When Gaohe Yan said to this point, he used voice transmission to talk.
“The Inner Abyss actually has… Well, I really didn’t expect it!” Old Man Jackdaw muttered to himself with his eyes shining with green light.
“If I hadn’t received this news personally, I wouldn’t believe it either. The Demon Abyss seems far more mysterious than we imagined.” Gaohe Yan said meaningfully.
“Although there are great opportunities in the Inner Abyss, the dangers are also great…” Old Man Jackdaw seemed a little hesitant.
“We have to take great risks to get the reward. Since we came to the Demon Abyss seeking treasure, we are already at risk. How can we miss such a great opportunity? At our cultivation level, mere diligence is no longer sufficient for further progress. We must rely on various opportunities. Moreover, regarding self-defense capability, Mr. Jackdaw, your Frost Rhino Armor surpasses mine.” Gaohe Yan said slowly.
A pondering expression appeared on the face of Old Man Jackdaw. After a while, he raised his head and said, “Well, Mr. Gaohe is right. Fortune favors the bold!”
“That’s great! With our two families working together, our chances will be much greater. However, let’s focus on getting the treasures from the tomb of the Sky Cry Demon Lord. According to our spies, we still have several months before the Inner Abyss event.” Gaohe Yan was joyful.
Old Man Jackdaw readily agreed. The two exchanged a few words and left after the discussion was over. Under Gaohe Yan’s lead, the 2 families flew into the distance.
When the 2 families disappeared into the distant sky, a faint green light appeared in the valley, revealing the figures of Liu Ming and Zhao Qianying.
“Sky Cry Demon Lord? Have you ever heard of this person?” Liu Ming asked Zhao Qianying while looking in the direction of where Gaohe Yan and the others were going.
“No, but from what they said, it should be a prominent Mystic Comprehending State demon.” Zhao Qianying shook her head.
“That’s right. The Sky Cry Demon Lord was a Mystic Comprehending State powerhouse during the Shuo Feng Dynasty. He was formidable as one of the powerhouses on the Thousands Demons Continent at that time. However, he suddenly disappeared. It turned out that he died in the Demon Abyss.” Mo Tian’s voice sounded in Liu Ming’s mind.
Liu Ming frowned without speaking.
“Since there’s treasure involved, why don’t we go and take a look too? After all, we still have plenty of time.” Before Liu Ming could speak, Zhao Qianying eagerly interjected.
“No. The opponent has 2 Mystic Comprehending State powerhouses; the other 8 were all Celestial State powerhouses. There were only two of us. The disparity in strength is too great. Moreover, the Gaohe Family is proficient in tracking. It’s lucky that we didn’t get discovered. Following them now is too dangerous.” Liu Ming frowned and said so.
“You’re powerful, yet your courage is disappointingly lacking. You’re really boring.” Zhao Qianying rolled her eyes and retorted with a hint of playfulness.
Liu Ming smiled wryly. This temporary ally was at the Celestial State early stage, but she was proficient in various mystic arts. In particular, her superb Truth Hearing Talent had helped him a lot along the way. However, she was reckless and impulsive. She never listen to people’s advice too.
“It would be a waste not to explore the treasure. Don’t worry. Leave the tracking to me. I guarantee that the people from the Gaohe Family won’t notice us.” Zhao Qianying pouted and said while shaking her head.
After saying that, Zhao Qianying took out a crystal clear yellow bead. It was engraved with circles of runes.
