After Ye Xiwen killed Old Freak Yin, he wanted to chase after Scarlet Thunder Immortal. Only then did he discover that the Scarlet Thunder Immortal had run far away with no way of catching up.
If Ye Xiwen went into pursuit now, he might still be able to catch up, but it would take a long time. It was also likely that he would encounter Scarlet Thunder Gang’s main forces and be entangled there. This was not what Ye Xiwen hoped.
As Ye Mo said, a large number of experts would be coming soon. By that time, leaving this place would only be wishful thinking.
Just when Ye Xiwen was about to leave, the Phoenix’s Flame Fruit tree that had already been plucked out of the Phoenix’s Flame Fruit suddenly began to burst into flames. The monstrous fire wave directly forced Ye Xiwen out a dozen miles away.
That heat wave made Ye Xiwen feel terrified. If he came near, he might be burnt to ashes on the spot.
This Phoenix’s Flame Fruit tree was so terrifying. No wonder everyone only wanted to take the Phoenix’s Flame Fruit. No one wanted to take the Phoenix’s Flame Fruit tree away. That would simply be courting death.
In this boundless flame, Phoenix’s Flame Fruit tree was burnt to ashes bit by bit.
With a loud phoenix chirping, a fiery bird reborn from the ashes amid the boundless firelight. It rose straight into the sky with a soaring aura, and disappeared directly into the sky.
Ye Xiwen knew that Phoenix’s Flame Fruit tree had left, and would look for the next place to bear Phoenix’s Flame Fruit. Then, it would transform again and again until it successfully formed the phoenix body.
Soon after the Phoenix’s Flame Fruit tree turned into a phoenix and flew away, Ye Xiwen left and flew in the direction where the Wang family had left.
Not long after Ye Xiwen left, a monstrous and blazing flame fell from the sky, and the terrifying aura spread to the surroundings.
When he landed, the aura dissipated, revealing his figure. It turned out to be Crown Prince Crocodile; he glanced around with his crocodile-cold eyes.
“It’s the Phoenix’s Flame Fruit tree’s aura. The news is right. Phoenix’s Flame Fruit Tree was here. What a pity I was late. But, why do I sense the aura of that human brat!” Crown Prince Crocodile carefully investigated the lingering aura. Despite Phoenix’s Flame Fruit Tree’s flame burning everything, he could still easily distinguish many things.
“That human brat. He is not dead yet, and yet he dares to come over. Fine, he will die no matter if he did murder E Xiangtian or not!” Crown Prince Crocodile looked around coldly, and then disappeared again in the horizon.
When Ye Xiwen found the Wang family again, it was hundreds of miles away. The Wang family’s party did not go far. They had been waiting for Ye Xiwen hundreds of miles away.
Seeing Ye Xiwen’s emergence, everyone in the Wang family was overjoyed.
At that time, when they saw Ye Xiwen joining the battle for Phoenix’s Flame Fruit, they were somewhat worried. However, Ye Xiwen had already joined the battle. Even if they were worried, they were helpless with it.
As a matter of fact, the competitors were ruthless experts in this sea region, especially Scarlet Thunder Immortal of Scarlet Thunder Gang. She ranked in the top 100 among the young experts. For the young masters in the Wang Family, Scarlet Thunder Immortal was an expert who soared high in the sky.
“Brother Ye, are you okay!” consoled Wang Mengyu.
“I’m fine!” Ye Xiwen shook his head. As he spoke, he took out a Phoenix’s Flame Fruit from Tianyuan Mirror and threw it to Wang Mengyu.
Wang Mengyu took the Phoenix’s Flame Fruit. Her beautiful eyes looked at it inexplicably. This is definitely Phoenix’s Flame Fruit. Not bad. She will not admit it.
It’s just that she didn’t expect that she could still get Phoenix’s Flame Fruit, you know, this is Phoenix’s Flame Fruit, let alone them, even a master who surpasses Transcendent Realm will be crazy when they see Phoenix’s Flame Fruit.
Ye Xiwen might grab one or two. This was all in her expectation. After all, Ye Xiwen had already shown his strength before they left. This was not too surprising. However, what was unexpected for him was Ye Xiwen would actually give them one Phoenix’s Flame Fruits.
“You deserve it!” Ye Xiwen smiled. If he only grabbed one, he would naturally keep it for himself. Since he had five Phoenix’s Flame Fruits, so naturally he didn’t mind giving them one.
“This is too expensive, we really don’t know what to say!” said Wang Mengyu. Although they did discover the fruit tree, they were eliminated from the contest long ago. They had nothing to say even if Ye Xiwen didn’t give it to them. This was a world where strength comes first.
“It’s fine. It’s just a Phoenix’s Flame Fruit. After all, we still have to continue exploring together, right?” Ye Xiwen said with a smile.
“Since Brother Ye gave it to us, we won’t refuse it any more. It will be meaningless!” said Wang Feiyun.
“Well then, the Wang family young master is in your favor!” said Wang Mengyu.
After Wang Mengyu accepted the Phoenix’s Flame Fruit, Ye Xiwen and the Wang family finally set off again.
Ye Xiwen had a map in hand, which made it much easier. However, there were others beside Ye Xiwen who had a map in hand. Ye Xiwen went to a few places marked in the map. He discovered that someone had already looted the places.
Treasures were all ransacked. Ye Xiwen could only give up in regret.
Of course, not all things had been raided. There were also cases where Ye Xiwen arrived first while the other forces had not visited yet. In general, due to the maps, most of these treasures were harvested already.
“Brother Ye, on this map, there is a place marked with exclamation. It will only open for the three days in the middle of the month. Coincidentally, we’re in the middle of the month.” commented Wang Feiyun.
Ye Xiwen didn’t hide the map from the Wang family since it was unnecessary. Ye Xiwen even showed them the map. In this kind of team, it was better to hear everyone’s opinion.
Ye Xiwen suddenly remembered and said, “Thee Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion?”
Although this area was considered Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion, the map indicated that it was still the outskirt area of Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion. The actual Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion lay deep in this land in the center.
Ye Xiwen even suspected that this might be the gate of a certain huge force. They were only at the gate. The actual Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion should be the garrisoned base of this sect.
Ye Xiwen thought it through. They had visited all the places marked on the map, and they had basically explored them thoroughly.
Basically, those treasures either fell into the hands of Ye Xiwen or ended up in the hands of other people with maps.
Ye Xiwen basically hadn’t gained much, except for Phoenix’s Flame Fruit. He only had some fairly good herbal pellets that were relatively rare in the outside world. But, it was not something of much value for Ye Xiwen. Hence, he sold part of it to Wang Mengyu, earning 2 million spirit crystals. This made his trip still fruitful. Ye Xiwen felt spending 15 million to buy the map was worth it, all in all due to the Phoenix’s Flame Fruit’s harvest.
Even getting just one Phoenix’s Flame Fruit made it worthwhile.
At this time, judging from the area marked on the map, this was the only area that was not explored yet. The Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion was in the center. Since it was previously not opened, no one adventures there. With the opening of the mansion approaching already, they would need to visit the place.
Those who had maps in their hands had probably gathered all in one spot. Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion was the most crucial part of the trip.
In places that were not marked on the maps, there might be treasures. However, the problem was that a gradual one by one exploration would waste a lot of time, which was the factor lacking for this exploration.
Ye Xiwen even needed to avoid theVanishing Shadow Poisonous Crocodile Clan who might come.
“That’s right. This is the place. We’ve all searched around here. We should not miss any great treasure!” said Wang Feiyun.
Ye Xiwen also prospected that the Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion would not be open forever. His time might only be one month. After one month, the Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion would close again and disappear. If they remained in the Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion when it was closed, they would be locked inside. As for when they could leave, it was unknown. No one knew when Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion would be opened next time. Based on the information in the map, this opening should not be the first time. Otherwise, no maps would surface. Only that they didn’t know when was the previous opening. It could be numerous years ago.
“En!” Ye Xiwen nodded.
After making up their minds, Ye Xiwen and the Wang family began to move toward the center of the barren land.
As they got closer and closer to the center, Ye Xiwen realized that more and more experts were moving towards this area. Not only those experts who have got the map, but also experts including many individual cultivators. As if they had received news, all began to move closer to this area.
Soon Ye Xiwen and others rushed to the most central mountain gate of Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion. It was among the mountain range. The only thing everyone could see was a huge palace standing on the top of the mountain, but this palace was surrounded by clusters of flames. According to the map, unless it was when the Holy Realm Dwellers’ Mansion opened, it would always be surrounded by flames.
