Chapter 27: White Cat
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Lin Jiufeng followed them and they soon arrived at a hundred-year-old tree in the Cold Palace.
Lin Jiufeng watched on curiously.
He had been to this area previously, but other than signing in and receiving a cultivation technique, there was nothing else in here.
He also didn’t find any secret passageway.
Corpse Elder and Butcher arrived.
Right under the three, under Lin Jiufeng’s scrutinizing gaze, they started to carve an array formation on the spot.
Corpse Elder spoke up. “This array formation has been handed down from the ancestors of my Chasing Corpse Sect. It is used to hide things from the eyes of other people and make those objects impossible for them to find.”
“One obverse and inverse…”
“Only a collision of the two will open the original entrance.”
Butcher hugged his arm and urged. “Hurry up! Cut the crap.”
Corpse Elder spent about 20 minutes setting up the array formation.
Lin Jiufeng watched through the entire process, the questions in his heart finally had an answer.
“I see, they set up an array formation to cover the eyes of others. No wonder nobody discovered it throughout the few hundred years that passed.”
Although he had a formidable cultivation base, Lin Jiufeng was never skilled in array formations.
To be frank, he had no clue about array formations at all.
“In the future, I need to get some manuals concerning the concept of array formations and pills. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get them from signing in.” Lin Jiufeng made a mental note of this.
He watched as Corpse Elder completed the array formation.
Then, the two array formations, one obverse, and the other inverse, exploded.
Right beneath the hundred-year-old big tree, a passageway appeared.
It was a passageway that led deep underground.
After having sealed for hundreds of years, moss could be seen everywhere.
Without saying anything, Butcher moved and pulled open the entrance of the passageway.
He anxiously wanted to go down.
Corpse Elder also watched curiously.
But at that moment, a golden radiance suddenly exploded from the dim passageway. It instantly killed both Butcher and Corpse Elder.
They stood there, indignant, as they held their throats. They wanted to say something, but no words could come out of their mouths.
This change stunned the people of the Chasing Corpse Sect as they screamed out loud.
Lin Jiufeng’s gaze also turned cold as he observed solemnly.
Corpse Elder and Butcher were both Martial Sages.
They might be not that powerful among Martial Sages considering that they were only at the first step of Profound Insight.
However, they were still Martial Sages.
Someone that had the ability to instantly kill them was strong enough for Lin Jiufeng to take them seriously.
Especially when that person was amidst these secret treasures.
But contrary to Lin Jiufeng’s expectations, the killer wasn’t a person.
But a cat.
A snow-white cat that looked very elegant.
There were only two spots on its body each with a different color.
Its pupils were black, like thick ink, so black that they seemed to have their own luster.
The other spot was its claws, they were dark gold in color.
That speck of golden radiance earlier was it seizing the chance to strike, using its claws to end the lives of both Corpse Elder and Butcher.
The snow-white cat opened its mouth and let out a cry.
Its voice was akin to a languid young girl, very beguiling.
But a few whooshes commenced and it transformed into a white shadow that wiped out everyone from the Chasing Corpse Sect.
A few seconds ago, the people of the Chasing Corpse Sect stood here, alive. Under the leadership of two Martial Sages, they wanted to dig out the secret treasures that belonged to them in the first place.
But at this moment, they were now corpses that could not speak.
The culprit was a white cat.
Its hair was not an ordinary shade of white, but a glossy transparent crystal-like kind of white.
Its small body paced on the floor.
Its claws were stained with spots of blood.
After having witnessed what just happened, Lin Jiufeng’s expression turned weird.
It was a cat at the Martial Sage Realm!
This was rare.
After killing everyone, the white cat meowed and was about to enter the cave.
However, its hairs suddenly stood on its ends. Its body arched upwards.
With a sharp cry, it stared fixedly in Lin Jiufeng’s direction.
Lin Jiufeng’s surprise had inadvertently released a trace of his aura that was immediately detected by the sensitive white cat.
It acted as if it was facing a formidable enemy.
Seeing this, Lin Jiufeng no longer disguised himself.
He revealed his figure and remained in the same spot.
The white cat immediately launched an attack. At a blazing speed, its claws burst out, a sharp golden glow slashed across, seeking to end Lin Jiufeng’s life.
But Lin Jiufeng combined two fingers to act as a sword, a sword technique from Sword Twenty-Two broke out.
The white cat was thrown upside down onto the ground.
Although it was able to kill Butcher and Corpse Elder, it was no match for Lin Jiufeng.
“You are probably the guardian of this underground secret treasure. You remained underground throughout the years, and that is why you killed those people who tried to invade your underground territory.” Lin Jiufeng calmly deduced.
The white cat was sent flying, but Lin Jiufeng did not kill it, he only inflicted a few injuries to it.
But the white cat knew that it was no match against Lin Jiufeng.
It turned around, wanting to escape.
But Lin Jiufeng wasn’t going to let it go anywhere.
Grabbing the cat with his large hand, frightening amounts of True Qi and even his Martial Will weighed down against the cat. The amalgamation of these forcibly suppressed the white cat as it could not move at all and was obediently held by Lin Jiufeng.
“Let’s go. How about you take me below to see what treasures are inside?” Lin Jiufeng said.
The white cat wanted to struggle, it didn’t plan on yielding just yet.
However, Lin Jiufeng’s True Qi instantly extinguished its hopes of escaping.
Without allowing it to object, he brought it down the passageway. Lin Jiufeng’s True Qi transformed into flames that illuminated the dim passageway.
There was nothing inside of it at all.
Nothing but a passageway that constantly led downwards.
The path was extremely narrow, only one person could move through it at a time.
This was another reason why no one had discovered such a place after so many years.
If its size was any bigger, people would’ve easily dug it out.
Lin Jiufeng walked for quite a long time. When he estimated that he was already tens of meters underground, he finally saw the end of the passageway.
What he saw at the end was an underground world.
Accurately speaking, it was a palace.
But it wasn’t too big considering that it was buried underground.
The doors of the palace were left slightly ajar.
Lin Jiufeng examined the white cat in his hands before he looked at the gap.
“You opened this, didn’t you?” Lin Jiufeng asked.
He only received the white cat’s fury of bared teeth as an answer.
Lin Jiufeng didn’t mind it.
Instead, he said with a smile, “Thank you for opening the door. Otherwise, I would have to expend some effort again.”
The doors of this palace clearly had an array formation inscribed on its surface judging on the runes and the winding lines that looked gibberish in the eyes.
Lin Jiufeng had no knowledge about array formations at all.
If the doors were tightly shut, he really wouldn’t be able to open them.
Right now, it was slightly ajar.
He only pushed it slightly and it opened.
The white cat shut its eyes tight in strong regret.
It came out in a hurry and forgot to close the door.
Now it brought disaster upon itself.
Pushing the door open, what appeared in his sight was a coffin and innumerable pill bottles scattered all over the ground along with countless precious treasures that had been clearly eaten by something.
This secret place used to contain a lot—a lot of treasures.
Just the pill bottles alone, Lin Jiufeng saw several thousands of them.
They were piled up and became a small hill in one spot.
As for the rest of the treasures, they were long consumed.
Lin Jiufeng even caught sight of a ginseng that was at least 10,000 years old. The essence it contained was no more, and only its exterior was left. It was tossed aside by something in seemingly great disdain.
“You did this, didn’t you?” Lin Jiufeng looked towards the white cat.
“You are only a little white cat, but you’re as strong as a Martial Sage Realm cultivator. You also move fast. It’s definitely because you’ve consumed all the treasures in here.”
“The secret treasures that the Chasing Corpse Sect constantly thought about for several hundreds of years were all consumed by you.”
The white cat did not respond to Lin Jiufeng’s question.
It acted like a tsundere. It turned its head away, refusing to talk with Lin Jiufeng.
“It’s so messy here, but this coffin is very clean, without a speck of dust. This can only mean that the person inside this coffin is very important to you.”
“Was it the person who brought you in here?”
Lin Jiufeng guessed and moved closer to the coffin.
The white cat grew anxious.
It struggled, wanting to stop Lin Jiufeng from opening the coffin.
But Lin Jiufeng had already pushed it open.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
Without any resistance at all.
The white cat and Lin Jiufeng looked over together.
But the coffin was empty, there wasn’t anything inside of it at all.
The white cat was dumbfounded.
