Rise of the Demon God - Chapter 1451
Long Chen passed through the barrier, noticing a door on the left side of the room which wasn’t visible before.
After recovering his sword, he started walking to the door.
The door was open, revealing stairs that were going down. He started going down the stairs since that was the only place Little Snow could’ve gone.
The stairs went in a spiral. There were so many stairs that he couldn’t even see the bottom, despite peeking down. Xun followed behind him.
“I can’t see the end. Just how long is it?”
“Who cares at this point? The tomb is already sealed now. We have no way out for the time being. There’s no hurry. At least we can explore this place well now,” Long Chen said, observing the stairs.
Each step had a different character carved on it that was shining whenever someone stepped on them.
After walking nonstop for over thirty minutes, he finally stepped on the ground, reaching the end of the stairs.
As his foot landed on the ground, the entire place lit up, getting bright.
“Not more statues,” Long Chen cursed out loud at the sight of more statues. The statues seemed to be made from a similar stone to the ones that had attacked him, but they were of different beasts.
He prepared himself to face the statues in case they attacked him, but he also had a feeling that these statues might be stronger than the last ones since they were at the core of the Origin Temple.
Just as he was observing the statues, lost in thoughts, he heard a cute sound.
He followed the voice. His gaze soon landed on Little Snow, who was sitting on a massive throne.
The throne was thousands of feet tall and so big that Long Chen was stunned. His gaze landed on the statues first instead of the throne.
Little Snow was looking like an ant, sitting on the throne.
There was another throne which was right beside the Throne of Little Snow. While Little Snow’s throne was ice blue, the other one seemed flaming red.
“These must be the thrones of the Origin Beasts,” Xun said, observing the throne. “I’m not sure why they would need this, though.”
“Maybe they got the inspiration after seeing human civilizations flourish and kings using such things?” Long Chen replied.
“It’s quite possible. Anyway, I think we shouldn’t stay here for long. The statues might come back to life at any time. Take her, and let’s try to find a way out. There’s nothing to see here.”
Long Chen nodded. “Yeah. I thought there might be something here since the statues were protecting this place, and the Beast Heirs wanted to keep what they saw a secret. But there’s literally nothing worth keeping secrets here,” Long Chen said, sighing.
He stepped towards the Throne.
As soon as Long Chen took the first step, he stopped, hearing a noise as if stone was moving.
“It seems you were right. They’re coming back to life.”
Instead of walking, he straight Teleported to Little Snow near the throne, but as he tried to pick her up, he was stopped by a Barrier.
There were twenty statues in the room, and ten of them came to life at once as Long Chen reached the Throne.
The statues looked at Long Chen with their lifeless eyes.
“Ah, do hurry. Ask Little Snow to come out if you can’t go in.”
“I have a better plan,” Long Chen let out, observing Little Snow, who was lying on the throne-like it was her bed. “She’s my Tamed Beast first and then an Origin Beast. I should be able to send her back to Beast Mountain.”
He raised his hand towards Little Snow, trying to send her back.
“It won’t work on her. I don’t think she’s in the mood now. Are you forgetting that she can come out and go back without your permission? Ask her to come out!” Xun said.
Long Chen took a deep breath, nodding. He understood she was right now that he had failed.
“Little one, come out! We need to get going. Come fast.”
Little Snow looked at Long Chen lazily, but she didn’t move. She was too comfortable in her position that she felt lazy to even move.
“Little one, stop acting. Are you saying that you want the throne more than me?” Long Chen asked. “I’m warning you, if you don’t come out in one minute, I’ll leave. Then you can stay on the throne, but I will never come back!”
Hearing the threat, Little Snow stood up.
She looked back at the throne before looking at Long Chen. Her mind was conflicted. She wanted to stay here, but she also didn’t want Long Chen to leave.
She looked at the statues that were moving towards Long Chen.
She made a soft noise. Following her noise, all the statues stopped.
“Huh? They listen to her?” Long Chen asked, surprised.
“A had a feeling they might,” Xun replied.
She further added. ” If I’m not wrong, these statues that were moving towards you belonged to Little Snow. They saw you moving towards her and thought you were here to hurt her. After she stopped them, they stopped..”
Little Snow looked cutely at Long Chen as if asking if the two of them could stay there now that there was no problem.
Long Chen scratched the back of his head, sighing. “It would’ve been so nice to know this before fighting all the statues upstairs. All we needed was for her to make a little noise.”
“It still doesn’t free you, little devil. Come out. We need to find a way out. Come,” he told Little Snow, not listening to her.
Little Snow seemed a bit hesitant.
Long Chen was about to warn her again when he abruptly stopped. The entire temple had suddenly started trembling.
In fact, he wasn’t even sure if it was just the tomb that was shaking or the entire realm.
He remembered when he had opened the Temple that it didn’t tremble. It only trembled when closing, and not even it was being opened, so he found it odd.
As the trembling stopped, Long Chen returned, “Don’t waste time, little one. Come out fast. We need to leave!”
As for the cause of the trembling, he didn’t know what it was, but there was someone who knew what it was.
The Phoenix Heir was still standing outside the tomb, not knowing what to do.. She had failed to get inside, but she couldn’t gather the courage to go back empty-handed either.
