It’s Lonely To Be Invincible - Chapter 292
“I’m curious what’s underground.”
He was excited when it came to mysterious treasures. The Yuan crystals were useless to him, and Lin Fan was prepared to give them to the sect.
The tools in the sect all required Yuan crystals to make, and some even needed Yuan crystals to activate. For example, the First god’s canon. Every launch cost a human-high class pill.
~When I first arrived in this world, the war had already started. It was very messy, and they had no choice but to use the First god’s canon to take down the Sunshine Sect’s war monsters.~
~However, it used up a lot of resources. Disciples could be easily produced, but it’s not the same for Yuan crystals. They formed only under many unknown conditions, and it took a very long time.~
They cordoned off the medicine hall.
Lin Fan put his palm on the ground, exerting earth energy from his palm in the shape of a blade, cutting a hole in the ground.
He shouted and raised his hands, cutting the floor open and pulling it up slowly.
Ten meters, fifty meters, a hundred meters.
“It’s quite deep.”
He didn’t expect that the Yuan crystal mine would stretch so deep underground. It gave Lin Fan a shock.
Just then, a pit could be seen under his feet, and wind could be felt blowing out from the pit. It was so strong that it made Lin Fan’s hair dance.
He tried to take a look, but it was so dark that he couldn’t see anything. It was as if it went straight to hell.
“This is quite scary. Luckily I’m not afraid of the dark.”
Lin Fan took a look and jumped into the pit without hesitation. It might be scary, but there was much to gain.
Outside the hall.
The citizens were more than glad to see the Mayor and Li An killed.
They suffered so much because of them over the years. How happy were they to finally see those behind their suffering leave this world?
“Thank you, lords from the Magnificent Flame Sect, for punishing them.”
“Li An and the Mayor have committed many sins. The Lunar mountain city is blessed to finally be free!”
“The Magnificent Flame Sect’s peak leader has taken Li An’s life, and Huang Fugui was part of the group.”
The citizens spread the news, and more and more people came to look.
Huang Fugui led the group to the Mayor’s mansion.
Inside the mansion.
The teenager laid on the bed weakly; flames of anger could be seen burning in his eyes.
“Bastard. How dare he cut my arm off? Is father back? Did he come back with my arm?”
He might have lost an arm, but it was unimportant, as there were ways to rejoin his arm back. It was just that he had no choice but to leave his arm behind previously as it was too dangerous.
Suddenly, his room’s door was kicked open.
“How dare you?!” The teenager shouted. “Are you…”
But before he finished, he was shocked by the group standing outside his room.
Terrified, his servants stepped back and hid in a corner, trembling.
Without hesitation, Huang Fugui and the rest captured the teenager.
The citizens following behind were furious when they saw the mansion. How much did the Mayor steal from them to afford such luxuries?
Even if some tried to resist, they died under Zhang Long and the rest in no time.
“Son, will everything be okay?” Huang Fugui’s mother, who had been following him, asked. She was worried that there might be consequences.
“Mother, be at ease. Nothing will happen.” Huang Fugui said. He was boiling with anger after knowing about what Li An and the Mayor had been doing. ~How much has my family suffered all these years?~
~What would have happened if I didn’t return in time?~
Dim lights could be seen flashing in the pitch-black tunnel.
Lin Fan landed on the ground and sliced the ground open once more, forming a tunnel. Soon, a long, deep tunnel formed by nature could be seen.
He didn’t expect the Yuan crystal mine to be here. ~If not for the Mayor, we wouldn’t have known.~
He went further down.
Lin Fan looked up to see the light growing brighter slowly. It was already so bright that the entire tunnel could be seen.
Crystals could be seen sticking out of the walls. However, it should only be a small part of the mine. There should be more crystals hidden underground.
“This smells so familiar, but there’s something else hidden deep inside.”
Lin Fan mumbled, curious. He didn’t know what to expect, and thus he followed the tunnel. The light from the Yuan crystals lit up the tunnel. Lin Fan walked deeper underground.
“It’s a lot of work to mine the crystals. But it’ll be worth a lot.”
Lin Fan gasped. He didn’t expect the mine to be so massive. The sect will be rich when they started collecting the crystals.
It never crossed Lin Fan’s mind to keep it for himself, as it was useless for him. Money didn’t benefit him that much.
All he needed were points. That was the only thing that could make him stronger.
As he went further down, he heard sounds soft sounds. But the sounds disappeared quickly.
“There are living things here.”
He could feel the energy waves from the creatures, and he followed his senses.
A light could be seen shooting past in the dark.
“A living thing has entered. Let’s leave quickly.”
Whispers could be heard, but Lin Fan missed them.
Suddenly, Lin Fan came to a stop as he has reached a dead end.”
“This can’t be; the smell is so strong, there should be a path in front.” Lin Fan frowned, placing his hand on the wall. He could feel an aura coming from the other side of the tunnel wall.
Using his earth energy, Lin Fan destroyed the wall. He found another tunnel hidden behind the tunnel wall.
After clearing away the mud, another tunnel appeared.
“I knew it. There shouldn’t be no way out. The scent won’t lie. There must be something living inside the tunnel. This smell belongs to a living thing.”
He smiled. God knows when Lin Fan’s sense of smell got so powerful. Moreover, the trait Connection of the earth helped him confirm that something was living here.
Deeper inside the tunnel.
A group of tiny living things gathered together.
“That living thing opened up another tunnel; we can’t let him discover us.”
“Stop him. We must stop him.”
“Did he discover us? Why is he forcing his way in?”
“Use mud to block the tunnels.”
They came out with numerous ideas to block the tunnels.
“What’s going on? Another dead-end?”
Lin Fan felt his head pounding. He went further in to realize that the tunnel was blocked again. However, this time the mud wall looked like it was artificial.
He destroyed it with his energy and continued on.
After some time, he came across another wall. This happened again and again, but he was able to destroy them easily.
“Damn it. What’s wrong with him. Why continue even if there’s no way to go?”
“Is he insane? Just change direction when you realize that the tunnel is blocked! We put in so much effort to dig this tunnel. Why is he still following us?”
“Did he find out about us?”
“Impossible, we’ve been hiding here for more than a thousand years safely. How could he discover us? Continue. I don’t believe that he won’t leave.”
“We didn’t pick the crystals because we didn’t want them to notice us. But who knew they were so evil? Not only do they want the mine, but they are trying to get us too. I’m going out to fight him.”
“Wow, you’re so brave! But that’s not something we can do. Living things are scary; they eat everything they see.”
“Yes. Once, I sneaked out and witnessed a living thing killing another. He then threw it into a huge pot and told his friends that meat would help them grow. Such a scary race, they will definitely eat us!”
Lin Fan kept clearing the mud walls as he went. If not for the scent, he would have left long ago.
~But the tunnel here keeps going. There should be something inside.~
He kept going down.
He saw a ray of light.
“Am I there yet?”
When he landed on the ground, darkness was everywhere, and he couldn’t see anything.
The mud beneath Lin Fan’s feet starts to shake.
Mud flew out from under his feet and start to mix with the surrounding mud, forming a huge mud giant.
A Yuan crystal could be seen in the chest of the giant.
“Living thing, this is not somewhere you should be. Leave now.” The giant’s loud voice echoed through the tunnel.
Lin Fan laughed, looking at the giant.
“I won’t leave before I find out what’s down here.”
~Leave after coming all the way here? Dream on.~
