The strange thing was that this secret road was completely dark, and there were some strange noises from time to time from the deep underground. There also seemed to be a muffled roar. If one walks here alone, he would really feel creepy.
Nangong Yu took out the lighting crystal stone and took Hexi’s hand step by step down.
The closer to the depths of the secret road, the more obvious the noise was. There was a disgusting rancid smell.
After walking for a long time in such a place, their vision finally became clear.
Hexi was about to pick up the crystal stone to illuminate the surrounding environment, then seh and suddenly felt a breath quickly approaching her body.
Purple Abyss Vine flew out immediately, tangling toward the object that was close to her.
And Nangong Yu moved faster than her. He launched the natural silk to entangle the figure who was coming.
He stretched out his hand and hugged Hexi into his arms. The flying sword in his hand was cast out, stabbing toward the figure that wanted to attack Hexi.
“Wait!” Hexi quickly stopped Nangong Yu’s action.
From the information reported by Purple Abyss Vine, the breath that just attacked her seems to be a person.
There was no killing intent on this person, and he didn’t have the power to threaten her.
Hexi took out more lighting crystal stones to illuminate the place in front of her.
However, when she saw the sight in front of her clearly, she took a deep breath.
This was a cave that was only a dozen square meters in size. There was a disgusting rancid smell in the cave.
Because there was a wooden barrel in the corner of the cave, and the wooden barrel was filled with excrement.
The ground of the cave was not clean. There were mud, blood, and food.
The food had been rotten for many days. It emitted a disgusting smell and attracted many insects.
And what shocked Hexi the most was the person who attacked her just now.
Looking at the size and bones, this should be a young boy.
It was just that this young man was naked. He crouched on the ground like an animal with four limbs on the ground.
His body was covered with mud, leftovers from food, and even smelly excrement.
A few small bugs crawled up and down on his naked body, gnawing at his flesh, but he didn’t notice it.
An iron helmet was put on the boy’s face, completely covering his face. Only two eyes were exposed.
Those eyes were staring straight at her at this moment, exuding a purple light.
That’s right, they were a pair of completely purple eyes which were almost exactly the same as the purple that appeared in her eyes when she was emotional.
However, such a pair of phoenix eyes that were extremely similar to her eyes showed a dull and ignorant expression.
He was like a domesticated beast that was well-behaved, obedient, and wouldn’t resist. However, he was like a walking corpse without self-consciousness.
Looking at those purples eyes, Hexi’s heart twitched slightly. This person gave her an inexplicably depressing heartache.
She stepped forward and slowly approached the boy.
Seeing her coming, the young man seemed to be frightened, desperately trying to retreat.
However, Purple Abyss Vine and natural silk were wrapped around him, so he couldn’t move at all.
So there was a bit of fear in those purple eyes.
Hexi waved her hand to call back Purple Abyss Vine; Nangong Yu also took back the natural silk in time.
Once the boy was free, he quickly fled back to the corner with his hands and feet on the ground.
