Chapter 238
Turning back time a little .

Troy and Milo were nearing the crystalline part of the lair .
However, their journey wasn't nearly as peaceful as Noah's .
They had been ambushed many times by swarms of Excavating worms, yet the number of rank 3 specimens seemed to decrease every time .
"I believe that the pack is becoming short of strong magical beasts . "
Milo said with a satisfied smile as he collected the corpses of the beasts around him .
"Which means that we are getting closer to the leader . "
Troy added .
The Bare Dungeon was publicly a danger zone, everyone knew that a rank 4 creature was laying somewhere .
"Yes, we are . The fully formed Credits are taking the place of the non-formed ones, the central part of the lair starts now . "
Milo spoke with a bit of hesitation in his voice .
The threat of a rank 4 magical beast was not to be underestimated .
Milo had a rank 4 body but his dantian was only in the gaseous stage while Troy had a rank 3 body, he was completely useless against a beast in the heroic ranks .
"Do we advance?"
Troy's question was on point .

They had to decide if it was worth exploring further, they wouldn't want to risk their lives for a mission of the alchemy department .
"The question is: will you follow me?"
A voice sounded from behind them which made them turn abruptly .
However, when they saw the golden hair of the young man and his warm smile, they smiled happily and cheered loudly .
"Daniel! You are safe!"
Milo exclaimed, hugging Daniel happily .
Troy was a bit taken aback by that affectionate gesture but he decided to limit himself to a bow and a greeting .
"Lord Daniel, I'm glad to see that you are fine . "
Daniel chuckled and freed himself from Milo's embrace while stopping Troy's bow .
"No need for such formalities . You have risked your life for the sake of my mission, there is no need to add "Lord" to my name . "
Troy raised his head before bowing again, he really couldn't muster the will to drop such basic formalities .
Milo laughed and patted his lowered head .
"Troy, you have always seen Daniel as a lofty character but, in reality, he is quite simple . He just likes to cultivate and hang out with friends, so you can just address him as Daniel when we are in private . "
"You know that I will probably be the leader leading the Cause in the future?"

"That's why I need to make fun of you right now! I won't have the chance in the future . "
Troy watched with wide eyes the playful exchange of words of the two nobles and the tension accumulated in the few days spent in the dungeon lessened a bit .
"Any sign of Phoebe and Manuel?"
However, they were still in a danger zone, they didn't have much time to waste .
Milo shook his head at Daniel's question and the mood of the three cultivators turned sour .
"I will go deeper to find some clues about them . You can just find a way back and call for help, I don't want to endanger you more than I've already done . "

Milo shook his head again and laid his knives on his shoulders .
"I won't let you go alone against a rank 4 beast, if something has happened to Phoebe, we will make it pay . "

Daniel nodded and turned toward Troy .
As he was about to open his mouth though, Troy spoke with a resolute voice .
"D-Daniel! I can take care of the remains of the pack while you deal with the leader! You are far stronger than me but you will still need help against a rank 4 beast . "
Daniel saw the unshakable determination in his eyes and sighed before showing a warm smile to his two companions .

"Then it's set, let's save our friends . "
They moved quickly, passing tunnels over tunnels until they arrived at the part of the lair completely made of crystalline Credits .
Then, a loud cry echoed in the passage, which made them stop abruptly in place .
"What was that?"
"Someone must be fighting the leader! We should hurry!"
Daniel answered Troy's question and took the vanguard position in his march toward the bottom of the lair .
Thuds and crashes echoed in the tunnel as they moved, telling the story of a battle happening right below them .
Then, they saw the deepest area .
It was a large underground room made of transparent crystals .
Tens of worm's corpses were laid on the ground and a massive red worm stood proudly at the center of the room, staring at a fixed point on a wall in front of it .
The three cultivators followed the worm's line of sight and saw that, in one of the cavities below them, a cultivator was kneeling with his guard raised .
The tunnels were all transparent in that area, it wasn't hard to discern the cultivator's features from behind a wall .
He had long black hair tied together in a casual manner, he was dressed in a tight black robe with its upper part torn in many spots and wielded firmly two white sabers that he pointed straight at the worm in front of him .
Troy couldn't help but link that figure to his fellow student and he instinctively spoke to him .

"Vance, is that you?"
Noah turned his head and looked at the three cultivators standing in a tunnel above him .
'They have finally arrived, I was about to go all out . '
He didn't speak but simply stared at them for a short moment before turning his attention back on the rank 4 creature .
He didn't want to suffer from a surprise attack of the worm after all .
"Daniel, look there . "
However, Milo's attention was caught by something else .
He pointed toward a spear and a sword lying among the corpses of the magical beasts in order for Daniel to see them .
Daniel recognized those weapons and turned abruptly toward Noah .
"What happened here?"
His voice had a tinge of anger in it as he asked that question .
Noah simply shrugged his shoulders and replied in a plain voice .
"Don't know, everything was like this when I arrived . "
