Invincible Kungfu Healer - Chapter 994
Chapter 994: Multicolor City
The Spatial Sound Resonating Talisman had been sent by Wen Jiuhai. When Nie Junxue was captured, she just had time to send out a Spatial Sound Resonating Talisman. The talisman reached Wen Jiuhai, who was nearby.
“The Multicolor Queen? Isn’t she one of the ancient land’s Three Great Kings?”
Mo Wen knew a bit about the preliminary ancient land’s Three Great Kings. They were the three strongest people in the ancient land, and they were incredibly powerful.
“Although Junxue is not the strongest one among us, only the ancient land’s Three Great Kings could capture her alive.”
Xiao Jinghe’s expression was extremely ugly. It seemed like they were in deep trouble this time. The Three Great Kings had been famous in the ancient land centuries ago. Even the Huatian Palace had information about them. It would be impossible for anyone of the four of them to defeat the Three Great Kings. Even now that Mo Wen had appeared, it was still highly unlikely.
“What are you going to do?” Mo Wen looked at Xiao Jinghe.
“We will find a way to rescue her. Wen Jiuhai and Chu Yu have already reached Multicolor City. They are waiting for me to head over so we can discuss how we are going to free Nie Junxue,” Xiao Jinghe said.
Unlike Mo Wen, the four of them had grown up together in the Huatian Palace. They had always cultivated together, so their friendship ran deep. They would never abandon their companion unless there was no other option.
“Brother Mo, I need to get to Multicolor City right now. I will bid you farewell.” Xiao Jinghe’s eyes flashed as he deliberately looked at Mo Wen.
“I’ll come with you and take a look. I will help you out however I can,” Mo Wen said with a smile.
Although Xiao Jinghe had not said it out loud, his gaze had clearly shown that he hoped that Mo Wen would lend a hand. The four people from the Huatian Palace and Mo Wen were somewhat connected. Now that one of them was in danger, Mo Wen would not happy to provide help.
Moreover, the preliminary ancient land’s Three Great Kings had dominated the ancient land for tens of thousands of years. Mo Wen wanted to see what they were like.
“Thank you! In that case, let’s head over there now.”
A look of gratitude flashed in Xiao Jinghe’s eyes. He had hoped that a powerful warrior like Mo Wen would land a hand. Although their origins were similar, they were not friends. This was the first time they had met. Xiao Jinghe did not actually have the nerve to ask Mo Wen to help them with such a difficult matter.
The two of them immediately changed direction and flew towards Multicolor City.
Xiao Jinghe had a detailed map of the ancient land which would help them to find Multicolor City.
Multicolor City was one of the five oldest cities in the preliminary ancient land. It was difficult to say how long it had existed. The city predated the Ancient Age.
Over many years, Multicolor City had changed owners many times. Its name had also changed. It was now occupied by the Multicolor Clan so it had been renamed Multicolor City.
Not only was Multicolor City the preliminary ancient land’s oldest city, but it was also the largest, most prosperous city in the ancient land. Even Flame Horn City paled into insignificance when compared to Multicolor City. The difference between them was vast.
“The Multicolor Clan is one of the oldest races in the ancient land. Rumor has it that in the early days of the preliminary ancient land, Multicolor City was already here. The Multicolor Clan is descended from the bloodline of the Immemorial Age Multicolor Xuan Ming Spider. As descendants of an Immemorial Age mythical beast, the Multicolor Clan’s bloodline powers are rather tyrannical. Any clansman from the Multicolor Clan is extremely talented and very powerful.”
“The Multicolor Clan has always been one of the ten major races in the preliminary ancient land.”
Two mysterious people wearing straw capes and bamboo hats stood outside Multicolor City. They were none other than Xiao Jinghe and Mo Wen.
Xiao Jinghe had received many detailed reports about the Multicolor Clan. This clan had been extraordinary since the Ancient Age. After all, they were of the frightening bloodline of an Immemorial Age mythical beast. Each of the Three Great kings in the ancient land had prestigious backgrounds. Otherwise, it would have been impossible for them to achieve so much in a place like the preliminary ancient land.
“You mean to say that the Multicolor Queen’s abilities are superior to those of an average beginning stage Tide Changing Realm cultivator? With her Multicolor Xuan Ming Spider bloodline, will her combat power be rather frightening?” Mo Wen asked.
“It’s not just likely; she will almost certainly be superior to an average beginning stage Tide Changing Realm cultivator. The current Multicolor Queen has lived for a very long time. She’s been alive for at least a hundred thousand years. Ten thousand years ago, the Huatian Palace had an absolute genius who came to the Path of Creation. In the end, he encountered the Multicolor Queen and nearly died at her hands,” Xiao Jinghe said with a serious expression.
“The Huatian Palace has long since concluded that in the preliminary ancient land, the Three Great Kings are invincible.”
Xiao Jinghe shook his head. Such a situation was related to the ancient land’s special circumstances. Human preliminary cultivators from the outside could only enter if they were below the Primordial Soul Realm. With such a level of cultivation, how could they possibly challenge the ancient land’s Three Great Kings?
Upon hearing this, Mo Wen nodded. It was almost impossible for a human preliminary cultivator to even think about challenging the Three Great Kings. It would only work if there was someone who could break through to the Primordial Soul Realm quickly after entering the Path of Creation and soon after also break through to the Tide Changing Realm. Also, an ordinary Tide Changing Realm practitioner would have no chance of facing them successfully. Beginning stage Tide Changing Realm cultivators were still no match for the Three Great Kings.
It was almost impossible to consecutively break through the levels of two great realms in a short period. Even if someone could manage it, they had entered the Path of Creation ultimately for the Creation Pool. If they broke through to the Primordial Soul Realm before they entered the Creation Pool, that would defeat the purpose of coming here in the first place, and their whole visit would have turned out to be a waste of time.
“Let’s go to the city now.”
The two of them entered Multicolor City.
The Multicolor Clan weren’t the only people living in Multicolor City. Nearly all of the races of the ancient land could be found here. It was a large city that accepted people from all walks of life. Any living creature that obeyed the laws set by the Multicolor Queen could enter the city.
Although Mo Wen and Xiao Jinghe were dressed strangely, no one stopped them from entering. All the races in the ancient land had different customs, and some creatures were much more bizarrely dressed than they were.
Once they had entered the city, Xiao Jinghe immediately dragged Mo Wen towards an inn. He had a sensory magical treasure in his hand and could detect the exact locations of Wen Jiuhai and Chu Yu.
Similarly, once he approached Multicolor City, Wen Jiuhai and Chu Yu could also immediately detect him.
The inn’s location was in a quiet part of Multicolor City. The nearby streets were somewhat desolate. However, such a place was undoubtedly ideal for them to hide in because there were very few people around.
They had just arrived at the entrance of the inn when someone walked over to welcome them and take them to one of the inn’s rooms.
“You’ve finally arrived.”
As soon as they entered the room, the person inside immediately closed the door and removed the bamboo hat from his head. It was none other than Chu Yu.
There was also a handsome youth in the room. He had slender fingers and was hugging an ancient sword in his arms. His gaze was as gentle as if he was embracing his lover.
“Mo Wen, I never thought that you would also come.”
Chu Yu looked at Mo Wen. He was very surprised to see him here.
“Am I not welcome?” Mo Wen said with a smile.
“Why wouldn’t you be welcome? It is just…” Chu Yu laughed bitterly. Nie Junxue had been captured, and they were up against the ancient land’s terrifying Multicolor Queen. Despite this, Mo Wen, who was not affiliated with them, had come. Chu Yu was very surprised by this and did not know what to say.
“Don’t underestimate Mo Wen. He’s extraordinarily powerful, and we might not even be a match for him,” Xiao Jinghe said. He could tell what was on Chu Yu’s mind. If they dragged Mo Wen into such a situation, they would undoubtedly owe him a huge debt of gratitude. Chu Yu was probably also thinking that Mo Wen would probably not be of much help. They would have gotten him involved for nothing.
However, Chu Yu didn’t know that much about Mo Wen’s abilities. If Xiao Jinghe didn’t know how capable Mo Wen was, he wouldn’t have brought Mo Wen here.
“Madman Xiao, are you joking?”
Chu Yu looked at Xiao Jinghe in some disbelief. Mo Wen was stronger than all of them? How was it possible? However, he knew Xiao Jinghe’s personality. Xiao Jinghe wouldn’t joke about such a matter.
Chu Yu looked at Mo Wen uncertainly. Could it be that Mo Wen was actually stronger than Chu Yu had expected? Otherwise, why would Madman Xiao say such things?
A twinkle flashed in Wen Jiuhai’s eyes. He was still holding onto his ancient sword and had not said a word. He stared intently at Mo Wen. His gaze seemed to contain a burning desire to fight.
On the surface, Madman Xiao appeared very approachable, but inside he was the proudest among all of them. If he was saying such things, and with a hint of humility, then what did that imply?
Wen Jiuhai was a sword fanatic. He had spent his entire life training with a sword. Those who loved swords also loved to fight. His goal was to surpass Madman Xiao, so he had fought Madman Xiao countless of times. Now, Mo Wen, who even Madman Xiao thought highly of, had appeared. A burning desire to defeat this newcomer immediately flared up inside Wen Jiuhai.
“Shall we spar?” a gentle voice said. Despite the softness, the voice seemed to have an edge to it.
Once this sentence was uttered, the entire room seemed to be filled with endless Sword Qi. The sharpness felt as though a slight tremble could turn the entire inn to dust among the Sword Qi.
“Wen Jiuhai, why are you looking for trouble now? Isn’t the situation difficult enough already? The issue at hand is the fact that we need to find a way to rescue Junxue,” Chu Yu said helplessly.
“Jiuhai, this is Multicolor City. You’d better not be reckless.” Xiao Jinghe, who knew Wen Jiuhai’s personality, also glared at him.
“We will spar when we have the chance.” Wen Jiuhai also realized that this was not the time. He could only slowly retract his sharp gaze.
“Madman Xiao, usually you are the one with the most ideas. Why don’t you come up with a way for us to rescue Junxue?” Chu Yu looked at Xiao Jinghe. His gaze was somewhat anxious. Clearly, despite their best efforts, they had not come up with a way to rescue Nie Junxue over the past few days.
“The Multicolor Queen chose to capture Junxue and did not kill her straight away. This means that she has some kind of use for Junxue. If my guess is correct, the Multicolor Queen wants to make use of Junxue’s weapon refining ability,” Xiao Jinghe said as he analyzed the situation.
Nie Junxue’s identity as a genius weapon refining master was her most eye-catching trait. She was a genius who could manufacture spiritual treasures. In the preliminary ancient land, not only were materials lacking, but immortal techniques such as manufacturing techniques and alchemy arts were even more scarce.
Even profound level weapons were rare in the entire preliminary ancient land. Many of the foreign clan members that had cultivated up to the Primordial Soul Realm did not even have spiritual weapons. It was common to see many cultivators going around empty-handed.
