The Dark Emperor Robe
When Yi Ping and his group had reached the end of the edgy ridge, they saw a towering iron gate with a shimmering portal. They immediately knew that this shimmering portal would lead them to the upper level of the Stellar Sanctuary!
But the icy platform that was in front of them was empty!
Obviously, they had all heard the terrifying roar of a dragon earlier but there was no sight of it now!
Or was it because the dragon was waiting to appear just after they had stepped on the icy platform and the roar that they had heard was just a hint to the challengers?
Alice said quietly, “Remember the divine beasts are able to move throughout the levels of the Stellar Sanctuary at will. We don’t really want to fight these immortal beasts unless we have no other choice.”
Yi Ping asked, “So, that Divine Dragon has now left the vicinity?”
Alice scanned the surroundings keenly as she said, “Maybe.”
Aiel laughed softly, “Or the Divine Dragon is never here in the first place. Let’s us step upon the icy platform now. I am curious to see what the boss monster of the 48th floor looks like!”
Han Lin suddenly leapt in front of Aiel, “No wait, Mistress!”
Aiel chuckled softly, “Han Lin, so what is wrong? Are you are afraid?”
Han Lin seemed to look at everyone with a pleading look, “Something is not right, really! I…sense the presence of a dragon here…”
Aiel laughed it off, “You are too timid, Han Lin…”
But Han Lin looked into her eyes intently…
All of a sudden she froze; it was because she had suddenly remembered that Han Lin was a Dragon Practitioner and that she was one of the last of her kind!
Han Lin looked at the icy platform as she trembled, “It is still there but it is invisible…even I don’t know exactly where it is. But I can sense its presence with my Divine Draco Sense.”
Alice said quietly, “Interesting. It can even hide its presence from me so it must really be something.”
Isa was also looking intently at the icy platform as she gripped her divine sword, “The same goes for me as well.”
Yi Ping was also looking intently at the icy platform but somehow he had a familiar feeling that he could not describe as he looked blankly at the icy platform.
But he knew that they were just one step to overcome this level…
Yi Ping said all of a sudden, “Let’s go!”
Youxue smiled, “Finally! That is the Yi Ping that I know in the past! I have forewarned him not to go up to the Heavenly Mountains but he still ignores my kind warning!”
Yi Ping smiled awkwardly when he remembered the first time that he had met Youxue. At that time, he was just a naïve wanderer while she was already one of the fraternity most highly skilled exponents!
Lie Qing was also mocking pretentiously, “He has always been this daring. This is not his very first time!”
