Chapter 247: Like a Beggar

Something suddenly hit Jiang Yun, making his face change dramatically.

Despite being alert with his divine sense covering the surroundings, both himself and Cold Dark-winged Bat were unaware of the appearance of this thing.

If this thing is a weapon, then he would either be dead or injured now!

Thinking about this, Jiang Yun couldn't help but feel a sudden fear, and cautiously looked at the thing that fell on the ground.

It was a stone the size of a finger.

Looking at the stone, Jiang Yun was slightly surprised and said, "Formation Stone!"

Clearly, it was a formation stone containing some kind of formation!

In the depths of the ice cave, near the Nine Snow Loop Array, a formation stone appeared.

Before Jiang Yun could come to his senses, a white mist suddenly appeared in front of him, twisting a few times before gradually turning into a middle-aged man in white clothes.

"Snow, Senior Xue!"

Looking at the appearance of this middle-aged man, Jiang Yun couldn't help but be stunned once again.

Because the person in front of him turned out to be Xue Mucheng again.

At this moment, Xue Mucheng had a approving smile on his face, nodded kindly at Jiang Yun and said, "I didn't expect you to recognize me. I am Xue Mucheng!"

"Young one, since you have come here, it means you have a connection with my Snow clan, and with my Nine Snow Loop Array."

"Therefore, I have decided to give you this formation stone. As long as you crush the stone, you can return here anytime, allowing you to continue studying the Nine Snow Loop Array and enhance your formation skills."

After listening to Xue Mucheng, Jiang Yun still seemed a bit dazed, saying, "Are you also a divine thought left behind by Senior Xue?"

"Exactly!" Xue Mucheng nodded and said, "I left a divine thought here to wait for the arrival of someone fated to meet me."

"Clearly, you are the one I have been waiting for!"

Suddenly, Xue Mucheng's figure began to blur, as if he were about to dissipate.

Jiang Yun hurriedly said, "Wait! Senior Xue, why did you set up a Nine Snow Loop Array here?"

"I have hidden a treasure here, a treasure that any cultivator who obtains it can immediately ascend to great heights!"

"As long as you break through this Nine Snow Loop Array, the treasure will be yours!"

At this point, Xue Mucheng turned to Jiang Yun with a mysterious smile and said, "Young one, pick up the array stone, don't disappoint me, I'll be waiting for you here!"

With those words spoken, Xue Mucheng's figure suddenly disappeared without a trace, leaving Jiang Yun staring blankly.

After a while, he finally shifted his gaze back to the array stone on the ground, furrowing his brows and saying, "How strange, Senior Xue actually left behind two strands of divine thought, one guarding the Li FireSnow Palace, and one guarding this Nine Snow Loop Array."

"Moreover, since there is a treasure that can help any cultivator ascend to great heights, why not leave it for the Snow clan, instead of hiding it here? Could it be because of fear of it being taken by others?"

"Even afraid of others taking it, he decided to place this treasure into Li FireSnow Palace, guarded by a hint of divine thought. Why make things complicated!"

Although puzzled, Jiang Yun didn't think much about it. He believed Xue Mucheng was being too cautious, so he left a bit of divine thought as a precaution.

Shaking his head, Jiang Yun picked up the array stone from the ground.

Glancing back into the pitch-black depths, accompanied by a Cold Dark-winged Bat, Jiang Yun turned and headed back the way he came.

Unaware, after Jiang Yun left the vast waters, Xue Mucheng's figure appeared again. After a mysterious distortion, he transformed into a young man, palm-sized, wearing a silver daoist robe.

Watching Jiang Yun depart, the man smirked coldly, saying, "Once you crush that array stone, my aura will spread. By then, Father will surely sense it!"

"Even if Father can't sense it, I don't believe you can resist the temptation of this array and treasure. Once you unravel the array, I can rely on my own power to escape from here!"

"Xue Mucheng, you trapped me for thousands of years. I will make you and your Snow clan pay the price for this!"

As he finished speaking, the man's figure suddenly exploded.

In the deepest part of the Nine Snow Loop Array, above the snow grave, the illusionary man suddenly coughed up blood.

The strange symbols surrounding his body, blurry like words, began to quickly disappear.

If Jiang Yun could see this symbol, he would recognize it.

This symbol is indeed a word, and it's the same "Dao" character that is branded on the items he retrieves from the stone-made Tao Sea.

With a spray of blood, the illusory man's figure suddenly swayed, like a candle flickering in the wind, on the verge of extinguishing at any moment.

This made his face look even more fierce, "I hate this, I, a respected Daoist, have fallen to such a plight!"

After saying this, a sinister smile suddenly appeared on the man's face, "Keep it up, little human!"

"If you can break this formation, release me, then as a reward, I will take your body, elevate you to the heavens in one step, and you will live forever!"

"Puff!"

As soon as he finished speaking, the man's imaginary figure turned into a wisp of blue smoke and disappeared into the snow grave beneath him.

And the deep ocean returned to calm once again.

。。。

Jiang Yun raced all the way and finally burst out of the icy cave.

Even though it was still nighttime outside, snowflakes were falling from the sky, just like before he entered the cave.

Looking back at the icy seawater inside the cave, the experiences of the past month felt like a dream.

If he wasn't still holding onto the magic stone in his hand, Jiang Yun would have doubted whether it was all a dream.

Shaking his head, Jiang Yun kept the magic stone and the Cold Dark-winged Bat, taking out the magic stone his grandfather had given him to go to Heavenly Pill City.

With the Snow clan gone now and the Ten Thousand Demons Cave not likely to overlook Jiang Yun, staying here a moment longer posed a danger. So, Jiang Yun prepared to head to Heavenly Pill City first.

But just as he was about to crush the formation stone, his expression suddenly changed. He looked up, glanced around, and coldly said, "Since you're here, don't hide anymore!"

As Jiang Yun's words fell, countless figures emerged from the snowy ground all around.

Watching these figures, Jiang Yun narrowed his eyes slightly.

But in the next moment, his brow furrowed involuntarily, and the coldness on his face was instantly replaced by confusion.

Jiang Yun thought that at this moment, hiding in this valley that belonged to the Snow clan, what he should be expecting were the demons from the Ten Thousand Demons Cave.

After all, they had suffered a lot from the Snow clan and himself. Although a month was not long, it could be enough time for them to gather a large army again.

Now, however, as he looked at the nearly hundred figures standing in front of him, Jiang Yun felt puzzled.

Because although the demon race were numerous and appeared to be from different tribes, almost all of them were young adults wearing clothes that looked like beggars.

Without exception, each person's attire was shabby like a beggar.

The clothes were torn and dirty, with a pale face covered in stains and blood.

From their breath, Jiang Yun could tell that the strongest among them was only at the Blessed Land level, while the weakest was at the Meridians Unclogged level.

Their gaze towards him was not filled with hatred, but excitement, anticipation, and hope.

This puzzled Jiang Yun about their identity, so he furrowed his brows and asked, "Who are you?"
