Chapter 317 – Garden in the Sky
Bang, bang, bang…
Han Yan, Nangong Wentian, and Big Yellow continuously attacked, shattering any and all stone golems that approached them, making sure that none of these monsters could disturb Jiang Chen. Within the center of the circle, Jiang Chen’s eyes were shut as he constantly unleashed his soul energy. With the help of the Great Soul Derivation skill, the entire mountain range was under his surveillance.
They still stood at the same spot after flying for more than ten minutes, this told Jiang Chen how unusual this mountain range was, and there must be something behind it. Jiang Chen carefully inspected every single inch of this mountain range. Finally, he focused all his attention on an ordinary mountain peak located right in the middle of the mountain range.
Jiang Chen suddenly opened his eyes, and two bright lights shot out.
“There is something wrong with that mountain peak. I can see a faint light blinking on it, and every time it blinks, more stone golems appear. As long as we destroy that mountain, we should be able to destroy all stone golems.”
Jiang Chen pointed toward the mountain.
“Little Chen, the gap between us and that mountain peak is large, how are we going to destroy it?”
Han Yan asked.
“Whenever we move, the entire mountain range follows! This is too bizarre; we’re going to be stuck here forever!”
Nangong Wentian said in a gloomy manner.
“Not really. I don’t know if you guys have noticed this, although we are trapped in the same spot, our attacks can leave us and fly forward. The mountains around here move with us, therefore, what we need to do is just stance here and launch long distance attacks at that mountain. Once we’ve destroyed it, all problems will be solved.”
Jiang Chen said.
“Although the gap isn’t small, but with our abilities, it won’t be too difficult for us to destroy it. But, these stone golems in front of us are really annoying! Little Chen, let’s work together, you help me kill all these stone golems and clear a path for me, then I’ll launch an attack!”
Nangong Wentian suggested. In his hand, the huge rule started glowing in an azure light once again.
“Alright. Six Profound Solar Fingers!”
Jiang Chen shouted out. The Six Profound Solar Fingers was the perfect skill for long distance attacks. In an instant, six gigantic golden fingers looking like six pillars capable of holding the heavens up appeared. Then, they merged into one single finger and thrust forwards with tremendous force.
The Six Profound Solar Finger was incredibly fast, as if it was a lightning bolt. It destroyed all stone golems along its way, and in the blink of an eye, the Six Profound Solar Finger had cleared a path. But, after killing so many stone golems, the force contained within the Six Profound Solar Finger had significantly dropped. Therefore, even upon reaching the mountain, it lacked the power to destroy it.
Right at this moment, Nangong Wentian attacked. He raised the gigantic ruler in his hand high up into the sky, causing the azure light to shine even brighter, just like the dazzling stars in the night sky. The gigantic ruler was called the Myriad Star Ruler. It was Nangong Wentian’s natal weapon, and it used the power of the stars. It was an incredibly powerful weapon.
Nangong Wentian suddenly let out a shout, then he forcefully swung the gigantic ruler and unleashed a dazzling azure colored Milky Way. The Milky Way followed the path cleared by Jiang Chen, and thrust toward the center of the mountain range. It wasn’t slowed down by any stone golems along its way.
The attack unleashed by the Myriad Star Ruler collided with the mountain pointed out by Jiang Chen with a loud explosive sound. The solid mountain instantly shattered, just like all those stone golems.
Also, right after the mountain peak was destroyed, all the stone golems instantly disappeared, as if they had never appeared before.
Finally, the ground let out a long sigh of relief. Although they didn’t fear these stone golems with their abilities, facing the constant attacks from a seemingly infinite amount of stone golems was no fun.
When the mountain range disappeared, the mountain range returned to its previous peaceful state. Aside from the destroyed mountain right in the center of the mountain range, everything around was still the same. Although they had fought for a long period of time here, there were no traces of a battle having taken place in this mountain range.
Suddenly, a buzzing sound could be heard from underneath the destroyed mountain. Also, ancient looks bright lights shot out from the same spot as well. A turmoil like was immediately attracted the group’s attention.
“There is something inside.”
Han Yan said.
“Wakaka, it must be a treasure!”
Big Yellow started laughing excitedly. He was the first one to rush toward the destroyed mountain. In the blink of an eye, he reached the destroyed mountain like a golden shooting star. When Jiang Chen, Han Yan and Nangong Wentian arrived, Big Yellow came out from the destroyed mountain, and there was an antiquated bronze plate in his mouth.
“Puh! I thought there was a precious treasure! What a waste of this master dog’s time!”
Big Yellow spat the bronze plate out from his mouth. With quick hands, Jiang Chen immediately grabbed the bronze plate. The mountain peak was able to produce a near infinite amount of stone golems, and it also had the ability to trap them in an illusionary realm, so there must be something extraordinary about it. Therefore, anything found within would definitely be something unusual.
When Jiang Chen took the bronze plate, he immediately felt how heavy it was. But, when he looked at it, his eyes immediately opened up wide.
“Look at the bronze plate!”
Han Yan was immediately surprised upon seeing the bronze plate. Seeing the two men paying so much attention to it, Big Yellow walked toward them and finally paid some serious attention to the bronze plate. To his surprise, the bronze plate was actually identical to the bronze plate Jiang Chen had previously obtained.
“What’s so special about this bronze plate?”
Nangong Wentian curiously asked.
Jiang Chen didn’t answer Nangong Wentian’s question, he instead took out another bronze plate from his storage ring, and placed each bronze plate on top of his right and left palm to compare them. Indeed, both of them were identical, and he couldn’t find any differences between both bronze plates.
“The fuck? Both bronze plate are identical? Little Chen, where did you get this thing?”
Nangong Wentian was surprised.
“I got the first bronze plate on the Blissful Island. I never thought I would be able to find an identical bronze plate at this Island of Ice.”
Jiang Chen was surprised as well. With his eyesight, he could easily tell that these were two identical bronze plates, and they were made using the same material.
And that’s the reason why Jiang Chen was so surprised. He got the first bronze plate from an old man back at the Blissful Island. Clearly, that old man had no idea what the function of this bronze plate was, but now, it seemed like this bronze plate was not something ordinary.
“So, there was an identical bronze plate in this Island of Ice… Little Chen, this bronze plate isn’t something ordinary, I’m sure all those stone golems are related to this bronze plate.”
Han Yan said.
“There might be more than two of these bronze plates.”
Big Yellow guessed.
“That’s possible. But, let’s not was any more time on this, I’ll just store them away for now. They might be useful in the future.”
After saying that, Jiang Chen stored away both bronze plates. Although the appearance of these two bronze plates didn’t seem extraordinary, Jiang Chen knew they were something unusual.
“Let’s leave this place.”
Big Yellow said.
The group continued their journey within the mountain range. Only this time, there weren’t attacked by any stone golems. Right before they left the mountain range, a white fog suddenly appeared in front of them, and prevented them from looking further into the distance. At the same time, they felt a cooling sensation.
“The environment here constantly keeps changing unpredictably, what a mess!”
Han Yan said in a gloomy manner.
“I sense no danger from the white fog in front of us. Once we cross this white fog, we might enter another universe.”
Jiang Chen said with a smile. He started walking within the sky, and instantly entered the white fog.
Soon after, the entire group passed through the white fog. It was just like Jiang Chen had said; they had indeed entered another universe. In front of them was a great plain with a bright sky. But, what attracted them wasn’t this beautiful scene, it was the huge garden that was floating high above them in the sky.
Precisely, a garden in the sky!
Right at this moment, figures of warriors could be seen lingering around the garden. All of them had the same excited expressions, and some of them had even started fighting each other.
Furthermore, there were more people dashing out from different directions. When these people saw the garden in the sky, they immediately flew toward it. Jiang Chen knew that these people were from the other paths, and there were more people on those paths than the one Jiang Chen’s group chose.
Clearly, none of the other paths were as dangerous as the one Jiang Chen took, and there might have been some paths with no danger at all. As for the path Jiang Chen took, only three men and a dog came out whole. The rest had all died.
But, none of this was important. The important thing was, the garden’s attraction was really powerful. Even from far, Jiang Chen could smell the refreshing air coming from it, as well as a strong smell of herbs. The smell of herbs caused all those who smelled it to feel relaxed and refreshed.
“Move! This thousands of years old ginseng was discovered by me!”
“Fuck you, I’m the one who broke the defense mechanism! You’re weak, and still envy other people’s result! There are so many herbs here, you can just go find something else!”
“What is that? An Ancient Yuan Jade? This is such a big piece, damn!”
“Look at that! That is the Glory Lotus King! An extremely rare herb in the outside world! Oh heavens, there are rare herbs everywhere! This garden in the sky is a gigantic treasure!”
Everyone arrived at the garden in the sky, and were excitedly yelling and shouting. This was because they kept finding rare herbs, herbs so rare there was no way they could see them in the outside world.
“Wahaha, precious treasures! There are indeed precious treasures here! This master dog has to go!”
While wagging his big tail, Big Yellow transformed into a golden light and flew toward the garden in the sky.
The others immediately followed behind. When they arrived at the garden, all of them were shocked by what they saw.
Nangong Wentian’s eyes nearly popped out, as if he was looking at something that only exists within a dream.
“Fuck, this garden is at least 5 kilometers long in all directions! There are herbs everywhere, and many of them looks really old! If this garden was located in our world, all superpowers would fight to death for it!”
Han Yan immediately jumped on his feet. Compared to this garden in the sky, Guo Shan’s herb plantation looked like a bull’s shit. The difference between the two was huge!
More and more people arrived and dashed toward the garden. After the first batch of warriors came to the Island of Ice, more and more warriors came from all over. As long as the Island of Ice’s entrance wasn’t close, many youngsters would come here to seek an opportunity.
“All these guys are brimming with happiness, and they don’t look hurt at all! We had to fight for our lives in order to reach this place, this is so depressing!”
Han Yan felt really frustrated.
