Chapter 494: The Bitter Life (2)

“What kind of gatekeeper is Brother Nine? How could he let people into the Graveyard of the Sun? I knew it; he hasn’t been in the right frame of mind these past few years . How could he fail in such a simple task?”

“Alright, now is not the time for nonsense . We are at a critical juncture for our experiment, so we can’t afford mistakes . Go and see if someone had broken in . Take care of them, and make it fast . Don’t cause delays to our progress . ” An old man in a black robe, who seemed to have a higher position, interrupted the other’s discussion .

“Yes . ” The others shut their mouths immediately . Three of them followed the old man’s instructions and headed toward the staircase that led to the overground .

When they got there, they were struck dumb by what they saw .

More than a dozen fire dragons hovered above them . The three elements had fused, and it generated a mighty blast of waves in the air . The three new arrivals almost suffered internal injuries from that blast .

“Where did all those fire elements come from?”

The three of them shook as they stood frozen in that spot . Fortunately, they regained their sense quick enough to summon their battle aura and magical cover to shield themselves from the subsequent blasts .

They raised their heads toward the sky, and they saw a small, fire-red figure that stood amidst the fire dragons .

The three black-robed men were speechless as they stared at the Vermilion Bird in the air . Who could tell them where did that brat come from? How could he stand in the air motionlessly?

“Who is this little punk?” One of the men asked in confusion .

“Are you sure it’s a who?” The other person asked as he watched the Vermilion Bird summon another two fire dragons . His eyes, concealed under his hood, widened in surprise .

“Then, what is that?”

“A magical beast… A mythical beast, no less…”

“Why would a mythical beast come here?”

The three men wanted to cry . They were there to deal with the intruder . How could they know it was a mythical beast?

Why would such a legendary entity be in a desert that was in the middle of nowhere?

The three of them looked at each other and saw the frustration in each other’s eyes .

How could they win that fight?

That miserable Shen Yanxiao had no idea that she had unknowingly caused the Vermillion Bird to be so upset that it acted out in a fit of rage . He thought that his merciless master had deceived him, and that invited a tragic situation for the group of people in the cellar .

The fact that Shen Yanxiao was also in trouble of her own did not diminish that at all .

Eventually, a month passed .

The trip of friends at the Saint Laurent Academy was still waiting for their friend to come back . They had so many questions for her .

However, they were not too worried as she had once been away for an entire month also .

Days continued to pass until it was only a week before the inter-academy tournament would begin .

The trio of friends had finally begun to feel uneasy about their friend’s absence .

“Why isn’t Xiaoxiao back yet? The tryouts for our academy is about to begin . She’ll miss the tryouts for the Archer Division and the Herbalist Division!” Yan Yu said with a long face as he sat in the lounge behind the casino .

The divisions at the Saint Laurent Academy would hold tryouts for the tournaments before it started . , Each division would select their most-qualified student to represent them and the academy in the tournament .

The tryouts were irrespective of grades . Any students who had the confidence to win were welcomed to try their luck . The teachers would select the best student to participate in the tournament .

Qi Xia, Yan Yu, and Yang Xi would join the tryouts as well, but they were not worried about their competition . They were anxious to know whether their world-traveling friend could make it back to the academy in time for the tryouts .
