Ji Ruoyu hugged Pi Yuanhong tightly as he rolled on the ground .

He rolled seven or eight times before looking up and realizing that he had been ambushed by a steel puppet .

The puppet’s opening strike hadn’t landed, but its fist came crashing down towards Su Chen . Su Chen quickly dodged to the side . The iron fist slammed into the metal wall with a resounding clang .

Su Chen gestured, and a strengthened Erupting Firehawk slammed into the metal puppet, the force from the blow sending the puppet flying .

A cast of Erupting Firehawks flew forth in rapid succession, slamming into the metal puppet’s body and exploding in a brilliant display of fireworks .

The iron puppet wasn’t weak; it was roughly equivalent in strength to an average Blood Boiling Realm cultivator . However, Su Chen had seized the advantage with a single strike . It had no chance of counterattacking under the furious onslaught . It could only allow itself to be bombarded into oblivion as flames covered its body . After Su Chen’s slew of attacks, it finally toppled to the ground .

From start to finish, it hadn’t touched Su Chen even once .

Ji Ruoyu was stunned . He gave Su Chen a big thumbs up . “Senior Brother Su, you’re awesome!”

The iron puppet may be equivalent to a high-layer Blood Boiling Realm cultivator in terms of physical strength, but its adaptability was terrible compared to a normal human’s . Thus, Su Chen was able to easily blast it into oblivion .

“Even after thirty thousand years, this thing can still move . That’s really quite strange,” Su Chen said as he walked over, inspecting the puppet’s internal mechanisms .

“Do you see anything of note?” Ji Ruoyu asked, walking up to Su Chen’s side .

Su Chen reached his hand inside of the puppet and pulled out a crystal unit, inspecting it as he said, “It only has the old style of Origin nucleus installed . There’s nothing special about it . It wouldn’t even last three years, let alone thirty thousand . ”

“Why can it still move?” Ji Ruoyu was perplexed .

Su Chen carelessly tossed the nucleus to the side .

It didn’t even have any value as a raw resource .

“Because it’s new,” Su Chen said as he stood up .


“Yes, new,” Su Chen said as he entered the room .

Under normal circumstances, even precious treasures would decay after thirty thousand years . Perhaps only divine-tier objects would be able to resist the passage of such a long period of time .

However, this place seemed as if it were untouched by time . It was almost as if everything had just happened yesterday . Ingredients that hadn’t been completely used up were still out on the workbench, and all kinds of stuff was scattered on the floor .

Su Chen knew that this had nothing to do with how fast or slow time was flowing . Rather, a powerful Origin Formation had sealed everything here, preserving all of the items in the room in their original state and preventing them from decaying .

This was a method the Arcana Race used to preserve things . It helped them ensure that their property and assets wouldn’t decay over time .

It was for this reason that their successors were able to find all kinds of treasures within the Arcana Kingdom’s ruins .

However, most of these sealing Origin Formations had limited effectiveness . Over long periods of time, they would also gradually lose their effectiveness before eventually being smothered by the sands of time as well . Because of this, most of the treasures obtained were in various states of decay and weren’t particularly useful . Only extremely powerful items could survive for longer periods of time .

But evidently, that wasn’t the case here .

Even after thirty thousand years had gone by, the Origin Formation was still perfectly functional, preserving all of the items here perfectly .

However, because this period of time was so long, anything with life-force couldn’t have possibly survived even with the protection of the formation . Even though all of the ingredients on the workbench seemed perfectly fine, the energy they once contained had long since dissipated, making them as lifeless as rocks .

Fortunately, Su Chen wasn’t expecting to find any kind of treasure like a thousand-year-old Blood Lotus – all he wanted was knowledge .

He picked up a book from the table and flipped through it briefly . It was an experimental log .

By relying on the ancient Arcana script he had been learning, he could roughly understand the book’s contents . Most of the book was filled with insights from the experiments .

Su Chen casually stowed the book away and continued to browse .

Because so much time had gone by, the items here had lost almost all of their energy . They had no value to speak of .

Ji Ruoyu did a quick search but didn’t find anything particularly valuable . He sighed regretfully, “What a pity . None of this is useful . ”

“Finding treasure in an ancient Arcana ruins depends a lot on luck . Don’t be so hasty,” Su Chen laughed .

To him, no treasure was as important as knowledge .

Time could slowly whittle away at treasures, but it couldn’t whittle away knowledge .

Because of this, Su Chen had harvested quite a bit .

As a research lab, there was no shortage of written documents, and logs were scattered everywhere .

As long as it was a book with writing on it, Su Chen took it with him .

After circling the place once, Su Chen was just about to leave when he discovered that there was still another booklet on the floor .

He opened it, only to find that it was a tattered diary .

The diary was in extremely bad condition . All that could be gleaned from it was a few fragments here and there .

“…… finally arrived at Patelocke’s lab . I’m so excited! I believe that this place will be the beginning of my glorious journey . ”

“…… Is this Master’s plan? Too profound, too marvelous! Master really is awesome; I will follow in his footsteps and fulfill his grand dream!”

“…… The experiments failed, but it doesn’t matter . We will succeed sooner or later . ”

“…… It seems like our luck lately isn’t that good . ”

“…… I’ve had some trouble falling asleep lately . There’s always a strange sound echoing in my head . It sounds a bit like someone pleading and crying . ”

“…… My slave died again . These idiots are always so clumsy; I worked this one to death . Hopefully, my slaves will be a bit smarter next time . ”

“…… How unlucky! I got a female slave……”

“…… Her name is Yi . She has very beautiful eyes . ”

“…… The experiments haven’t been going well and the troubles just keep piling on . Apparently, the higher-ups feel like we are wasting too many resources, so they plan on stopping the experiments . Master was infuriated . ”

“…… Yi is sick . I’m very worried for her and can’t get much sleep . What’s wrong with me? She’s just a lowly, despicable human . I shouldn’t be anxious about her . ”

“…… This is a disaster . ”

“…… It feels like the end of the world is near . ”

“…… Every living thing dies eventually; there aren’t any exceptions . Perhaps what we are pursuing may never come to fruition . ”

“…… I heard Yi crying again in my head . This makes me fearful . This place has been overtaken by demons…… Demons that we created . ”

“…… The experiments failed again . Master was infuriated; he killed twelve slaves all at once . We are all very afraid and don’t know what to do . ”

“…… Master has gone more and more insane . Main thinks that he could have secretly used some of that on himself . Just the thought alone terrifies me . ”

“…… When I first came here, I was filled with hope . I thought that I could fulfill my grand dream . But now, I feel like I’m in the depths of hell . Yes, this place is truly hell . ”

“…… Main died . Master killed him . ”

Su Chen flipped to the diary’s last page .

“Everything ends today!”
