Chapter 549: The Celestial Residence’s Backlash
Xie Yu once again felt apprehensive at the sight of Wei Liangyue. No one else had managed to make it in yet, but he had gotten here. Although his clothes were disheveled and he looked pretty wretched, he didn’t seem to be injured.
Ning Shu suddenly recalled Shi Huidi and said, “Why did you abandon your senior sister and junior sister outside to run in on your own? You should know how dangerous these checkpoints are.”
Xie Yu’s facial color changed. He really had forgotten about Shi Huidi and Yan Jiao. Since there were two strong competition next to him, his only thought had been to hurry and obtain the celestial residence.
Xie Yu was vexed that Ning Shu had pointed this out.
“Tsk tsk, you truly fall in love when you see one, toss one away once you love another one,” sneered Ning Shu.
She then looked around and discovered that a round thing was floating in the middle of the room. It was about the size of a soccer ball and revolved around slowly. The light it gave off felt complicated and hurt the eyes.
What the hell was that?
“Hey beautiful, can I ask how this person died?” Ning Shu turned towards Liu Yuanyuan.
Liu Yuanyuan could tell that Ning Shu was strong, so she replied coldly, “He overestimated his capabilities and wanted to subdue the celestial residence. This was how he ended up.”
The three people that possessed jade tablets had rushed inside the palace first. Since they had the jade tablets, it was very easy to get through the checkpoints since most of the things didn’t attack the people with the jade tablets.
The man in the changpao who had gotten here first had immediately inserted his spirit consciousness into the celestial residence’s core. However, he seemed to have encountered something and ended up dying.
It was probably the celestial residence’s backlash. It was clear that the celestial residence had refused to acknowledge this man as its master.
Ning Shu frowned. The celestial residence’s backlash was this terrifying?
“His soul had been absorbed by something.” 2333’s voice appeared inside Ning Shu’s head. “Who would’ve thought that this plane’s core was actually this large? Looks like it doesn’t have long before it disappears.”
“The core being big is bad? Why would it disappear if it’s big?” Ning Shu was confused.
System 2333-sama explained, “The reason the core looks big is because its binding is coming apart. Sooner or later, it’ll come apart completely. The more stable the core is, the smaller it is. That’s why I said this was a trash of a plane.”
Ning Shu asked, “You said that his soul was gone because something swallowed it. Could it be that the plane’s core had devoured his soul?”
“This I don’t know.” Then 2333 disappeared.
When Ning Shu heard 2333 say that the changpao man’s soul was gone, she wanted to have Xie Yu give it a try. It’d be perfect if this core would suck away Xie Yu’s soul as well.
