“Haha, treasure, another treasure,” The big scorpion laughed, drooling all over the ground. However, with the previous lesson, it did not attack rashly. Instead, it looked at Qin Chen, who was at the side, wanting him to take the lead.
Qin Chen raised his brows and carefully walked toward the Supreme Sage pill. He slowly reached out his hand toward the transparent ball of light and held his breath, constantly on guard against his surroundings. However, nothing unusual happened even after he took the Supreme Sage pill.
The big scorpion was dumbfounded, and its mentality instantly collapsed. It shouted, “Ancestor, are you kidding me? When I went to get the treasure, you gave me an undefeatable human-shaped puppet, but nothing happened to this kid when he went to get the treasure?! This is too much!”
Qin Chen didn’t expect things to go so smoothly either. He looked at the Supreme grade Supreme Sage pill in his hand and smiled. In front of the big scorpion, he put it into the spatial artifact. The big scorpion was so angry that it cursed a string of profanities and regretted its earlier hesitance.
At the same time, the Demon Emperor Tomb started shaking.
A loud noise was heard, followed by a strong smell of blood. Qin Chen and the big scorpion looked into the distance with vigilance. They saw a red light shining from the back hall in the south before disappearing quickly. Then, except for the pungent smell of blood, everything was calm again.
“Did something come out? Such a strong smell of blood… How many people have died?” The big scorpion’s expression turned extremely ugly. It couldn’t help but think of the people who had come to the Demon Emperor Tomb.
At that time, hundreds of people had come to the Demon Emperor Tomb. Among them were experts from the demon races and the human race. All of them had very strong cultivation. Even the weakest was a Venerable, and many were in the Supreme Sage realm. There were even Shifang Gods, which were above the three Jiutian Sages.
Yet, even with such a powerful lineup, they did not come out alive in the end. Instead, blood dyed the endless desert red.
Thinking of this, the big scorpion shrunk its neck and hid behind Qin Chen. It looked in the direction of the ancient palace with fear and had the urge to retreat.
Qin Chen also frowned. Something must be wrong if things were abnormal. Something extraordinary must have appeared with such a heavy stench of blood.
He looked in the direction of the back hall and walked over with a serious expression.
When the two of them arrived at the back hall, they found that the door was wide open. However, the hall was shrouded in a mass of demonic energy, so they couldn’t see what was inside.
At this place, the smell of blood was even stronger. Even a bloodthirsty demon like the big scorpion said with an ugly expression, “Brat, this place is obviously dangerous. Let’s think of a way to leave as soon as possible.”
[An extremely powerful divinity has been discovered ahead!]
The system’s voice rang in Qin Chen’s ears. Qin Chen was shocked and he muttered in his heart, “System, how strong is the divinity in there?”
[It is the place with the strongest divinity among the places that the host has checked into so far.]
Qin Chen was shocked. Could it be that the hall’s divinity was even stronger than the divinity in the great emperor’s palace?
“I want to go in and take a look!” Qin Chen’s eyes were firm as he looked at the back hall with determination.
“What? You still want to go in?” The big scorpion was shocked and looked at Qin Chen in disbelief, “Kid, I know you’re very powerful, but do you know? In the past, even Shifang Gods had come to the Demon Emperor Tomb and never returned. Listen to my advice. We should think of a way to leave this place as soon as possible!”
Qin Chen shook his head. Never mind the fact he had no way to leave this place, even if he did, he had to go in and take a look. After all, he had already arrived at the door. It was not worth it to leave just like that.
“Let’s rest for the night and go in tomorrow!” With a deep grunt, Qin Chen sat down cross-legged in front of the back hall and began to cultivate quietly, no longer paying attention to the big scorpion at the side.
The reason why he decided to go in tomorrow was that he had already used his check-in opportunity today. Otherwise, he would not have the patience to wait here.
“Brat, if you want to send yourself to death here, I won’t accompany you,” The big scorpion snorted coldly. It was timid, to begin with, so it naturally did not dare to stay here and take the risk. After leaving behind these words, it walked back to the place where he came from, wanting to leave.
Qin Chen didn’t ask the big scorpion to stay. After all, he only wanted to go into the back hall to check-in. The big scorpion didn’t need to take the risk with him.
There was no sun or moon in the Demon Emperor Tomb, nor was there a way to calculate time. If it were someone else, they would probably have forgotten the time. However, Qin Chen would not. With the system, he could know the time whenever he wanted.
The first day had just passed when the system’s check-in count was updated in Qin Chen’s mind. He abruptly opened his eyes and stared at the back hall with a determined look on his face. He was ready to enter now.
The back hall, which was shrouded in demonic energy, was like the huge mouth of an abyss. The nauseating smell of blood had not yet dissipated. Even an expert like Qin Chen felt a little creeped out. He decided that he would leave immediately after checking in.
Just as Qin Chen was about to enter, the big scorpion suddenly appeared behind him and asked, “Kid, do you really want to go in? It’s obvious that this place isn’t a good place to go. God knows what’s inside.”
“Yes, I want to go in and take a look. I might be able to find a way out in there!” Qin Chen smiled. In order not to arouse the suspicion of the big scorpion, he had deliberately said that he would find a way out in there.
The big scorpion’s eyes darkened. It looked in the direction where it had come from and felt a little regretful. If it had not come here, it would have only needed to cultivate for another tens of thousands of years to break through to the God realm. By then, even the demonic wind in the desert would not be able to stop it.
However, now that it had come here with Qin Chen, it was afraid that it would die if it was not careful. And now, Qin Chen insisted on going to the back hall, which would lead to almost certain death.
However, if he died inside, how long could it live alone?
The big scorpion’s mind was filled with thoughts, and it looked very hesitant. It gritted its teeth for a moment, then shook its head and sighed.
The longer it dragged on, the more dangerous it would be. Qin Chen ignored the big scorpion and turned to head to the back hall. However, before he could take a few steps, he was stopped by the big scorpion.
“Wait, I’ll go with you!” The big scorpion gritted its teeth and finally decided to go with Qin Chen.
Qin Chen frowned. The level of danger inside was unknown, and he did not want the big scorpion to risk it. He said, “It’s very dangerous inside, are you sure you want to go?”
The big scorpion was very decisive this time. It nodded and replied, “Yes. If you die, I won’t be able to leave this place alone either. In that case, I might as well go with you. What if we can find a way out?”
Since the big scorpion was so determined, Qin Chen did not say anything more. He let out a breath of hot air, and a monstrous Sagely might exploded from his body. He circulated the Thirty0three Heavens and brought the big scorpion into the back hall.
The big scorpion was vigilant as if it was facing a great enemy. It held the Supreme Sage weapon that it had just obtained and followed behind Qin Chen, trembling.
The two of them walked into the back hall, and the demonic energy everywhere attacked them. Qin Chen circulated the Thirty-three Heavens with all his might, protecting the big scorpion behind him and blocking the demonic energy.
Without any hesitation, Qin Chen muttered in his heart, “System, I want to check in!”
[Check-in failed! Reason: Due to the interference of demonic energy, divinity can not be gathered.]
“Check-in failed?” Qin Chen’s expression changed. Such a system check-in failure had never happened before.
It could only mean that this back hall was not simple.
The system did not respond to Qin Chen and fell into dead silence. At this moment, two balls of red light suddenly appeared in the dark demonic energy.
Upon closer inspection, it was a pair of demonic eyes!
