Luo XiaoLou was dumbfounded. He didn’t have time to react to the speed at which the ice dregs increased, and in the blink of an eye, the stiff people were covered with ice crystals, which then slowly turned into hard, grey shells.
In just a dozen seconds, there were eight more stone statues behind Luo XiaoLou!
Luo XiaoLou stumbled backwards in shock, almost falling down the stairs. Behind him, an icy object blocked him.
Luo XiaoLou turned around, and a stone statue stood almost face to face with him. Upon closer inspection, he realized that the statue’s facial features were vivid and its expression of panic was vivid.
“Oh my God, Yuan Xi, they are all human beings!” Luo XiaoLou shouted in panic as his hands and feet were busy steadying the shaken statue he had bumped into.
Luo XiaoLou then glanced down and found his leg covered with white ice cinder.
God! He’s turning into a statue too? How did that happen?
An extremely fast reflection appeared in the stone statue, and then Yuan Xi was already standing in front of him. He quickly bent down and slapped at the ice scraps on Luo XiaoLou’s legs. And those life-threatening ice scraps actually fell away as soon as Yuan Xi slapped them.
“Move.” Yuan Xi held onto Luo XiaoLou and urged him.
Luo XiaoLou felt like his legs were slightly numb but he thought that was from Yuan Xi, and tried to take a couple of steps, relieved to find that he could still move.
“No, it’s okay… What the hell is going on in this hellhole?” Luo XiaoLou asked, while holding on to Yuan Xi’s arm with a death grip to increase his own sense of security.
125 tremblingly poked his head out, stepped on Luo XiaoLou’s shoulder and wondered, “Perhaps because the environment inside is too harsh, the human race has been affected too much. Didn’t that person say that there was a cosmic loophole here? As for you two, maybe since Yuan Xi has taken the drug, now his body is strengthened to an incredible degree. And Li Suo said that ancient martial arts at a certain level can change the structure of the body so that it is no longer affected by radiation.”
“So what happened to me? I’m obviously not affected by radiation when I’m outside.” Luo XiaoLou frowned and asked, “And can’t you just come down and walk by yourself?”
“Of course not! I – I’m a purely mechanical doll now, and you can’t bear to let me walk on my own in a place like this!” 125 accused his foster carer, holding Luo XiaoLou’s neck harder as he spoke.
“Is Luo XiaoLou in danger then?” Yuan Xi asked coldly beside him, his face hadn’t looked good since he’d been inside.
Luo XiaoLou and 125 immediately muffled their voices, and after two seconds, 125 carefully replied, “He should be fine. But the place is slightly inhibiting the exotic beast gene. That’s why he was attacked by those things.” In fact, 125 felt so scared now that it couldn’t wait to get the hell out of this place right now.
Yuan Xi realized Luo XiaoLou was fine, hugged him to his side, and flew downwards.
The further down the stairs Luo XiaoLou went, the more uneasy he felt, as if there was something extremely dangerous down there.
At the bottom level of the stairs, the white gas below was eerie, like a chill formed when it was extremely cold. When looking down, it was blurry, but it looked very high. And the huge stone platform in the middle was suspended above the white qi. Although it was flush with the last level of steps, it was more than ten meters away from them.
By the time they reached there, Luo XiaoLou’s unease reached its peak. He stared down with a frown, and decided to find out what was down there first for the safety of the two of them. Because 125 had said that there were restrictions on the exotic beast here, he didn’t dare to use Source of Consciousness power. Instead, he used a small amount of Spiritual Power to probe down.
Under the white gas, it was very deep, until finally there was a thick layer of ice. The entire bottom was covered with frozen ice.
Luo XiaoLou probed as far as he could. The entire area behind the huge door, apart from the huge steps and stone platform, was more like a naturally formed huge geological cavity. This cave was so massive and terrifying that one couldn’t see the edge at a glance, and overhead, there were countless white icicles hanging upside down.
Luo XiaoLou focused on the bottom of the stone platform and the surrounding area, but he found nothing except the ice.
Luo XiaoLou was relieved and was about to withdraw his Spiritual Power when he suddenly became dizzy. It was as if he were looking at a building in the distance, but the building suddenly distorted and the entire white ice layer, or rather the inside of the ice layer, moved in an instant, shocking Luo XiaoLou.
Yuan Xi turned to look at him, “What’s wrong with you again?” As he asked this, he wrapped his coat around Luo XiaoLou and sneered sarcastically, “Obviously you’re a hairy one. Why are you more afraid of the cold than me?”
Luo XiaoLou not only didn’t retort, but also leaned in close to Yuan Xi, who gave him a surprised glance and hugged Luo XiaoLou closer. The fat green guy on Luo XiaoLou’s shoulder, however, was already completely stiff.
Luo XiaoLou looked down again, but found that the ice below was still ice, quiet and honest, like it had just been an illusion.
Luo XiaoLou hoped that it really had been an illusion, so that at least they weren’t in danger.
But if it wasn’t an illusion, then what could it be? The ice was breaking up? No, that wasn’t likely. The ice was solid and incredibly thick based on his Spiritual Power’s detection.
While Luo XiaoLou frowned, deep in thought, Yuan Xi suggested, “Let’s go over there.” Then he jumped over with Luo XiaoLou in his arms.
Luo XiaoLou didn’t even realize that they had reached the stone platform, and only felt a welcome coolness.
There was no movement from below, and Luo XiaoLou didn’t bother to think about it anymore as he realized they were no longer in immediate danger. His attention was now completely drawn to the huge crystal in front of him. The shadow in the crystal was now clearly visible. It was indeed a person.
Inside was a tall, thin man, dressed in dark clothes, holding a silver short sword in his hand, a silver pendant around his neck, and half-length black hair.
Luo XiaoLou was once again shocked when he looked up at his face. His eyes were closed and he seemed to be sleeping quietly inside. His features and eyebrows were almost identical to His Majesty, Feng JiaLing.
Yuan Xi was startled as he looked in. He took a step forward and reached out to touch the crystal, murmuring, “Brother.”
125 suddenly leaned over Luo XiaoLou’s shoulder towards the crystal stone as well, and with a trembling voice, he shouted, “Master!”
