"Was it a good idea to come in here?" Luo Xiaoxiao inquired, her voice trembling.
"We're already here, there's nowhere else for us to go if we don't enter anyway." Yang Chen said.
He attempted to reach out and touch the black disc after confirming that nothing else had occurred. but the black disc did not respond, and it appeared that no special mechanism was in place.
Yang Chen paused for a moment, then reached out to stroke the black ball in the center, slowly pushing it inside the gate.
The black ball actually moved!
The purple door of light began to dissipate as the black ball was slowly pushed into the depths, revealing another scene inside!
There was a large space built from stones in front of it, and the meticulous stones were made of some special material, with some small golden rune formations flashing everywhere.
Yang Chen used his divine sense to scan around and his facial expression changed suddenly, and he couldn't help shouting, "This is the Tongtian Pagoda!?"
Yang Chen, who had seen this tower on the first floor of Tongtian Pagoda, thought he had seen it before. No wonder these golden runes seemed so familiar!
“What is the Tongtian Pagoda?" Luo Xiaoxiao asked in confusion.
Yang Chen's mind was very confused, and he didn't have time to explain it to the girl in detail. He did not understand why they are suddenly at the Tongtian Pagoda. Could it be that there was a connection between the Eye of the Sky Demon and the Tongtian Pagoda in the Ten Thousand Demon Realm?
But why was this the case? Did this passage already exist by default, or was it created by the great ancient immortals?
Yang Chen thought of Yu Xuening, who had become entangled with Wen Tao in order to save him and Hui Lin that day, and he had no idea what had happened to this peerless demon fox. Since he was already here, he might as well check out the pagoda again!
"Come," Yang Chen took Luo Xiaoxiao and stepped into the Tongtian Pagoda.
The aura that approached them the next second was completely different from the previous natural world, and it was the rich aura in the Tongtian Pagoda.
When he was inside, Yang Chen realized that the light curtain door behind him was not closed, and the ‘key’ black ball, after advancing, just hovered above it.
The ancestors of the Meng family probably took the black ball from here...
Wait a minute!
Yang Chen's mind flashed, and he thought... if the ancestor of the Meng family took the black ball from here, doesn't it mean that...he once came to Tongtian Pagoda and went out!?
This thought made Yang Chen extremely shocked.
Because Yu Xuening once said that no one had ever escaped from the Ten Thousand Demon Realm from the time she entered this place 50,000 years ago, and she was also the longest-lived powerhouse in this place.
It could be said that Yu Xuening is the living epic of Wan Yaojie. There is nothing she doesn't know, let alone the important thing that someone broke through the Tongtian Tower.
If that's the case, the only explanation was that long before Yu Xuening entered here, the ancestors of the Meng family had already entered here, and even broke through the ninety-nine Purple Blue Heavenly Lightning and came out of this tower!
In this case, Yu Xuening had no way of knowing this historical truth.
Yang Chen hesitated for a moment before leading Luo Xiaoxiao to the center of the Tongtian Pagoda on this floor. This Tongtian Pagoda was enormous, and Yang Chen wasn't sure if he was on the top floor or not.
As for the Purple Blue Heavenly Lightning, it was no longer a major threat to Yang Chen. After all, with the Chaos Cauldron in hand and his cultivation base not as low as it had been previously, there was no way he couldn't protect Luo Xiaoxiao.
After a while, the landscape ahead shifted, reaching the middle section and revealing a massive golden circle.
It looked like a golden film covering the vacant space in the center, but it was not something that could be easily eliminated. These golden patterns were utilized by the Purple Blue Heavenly Lightning to keep intruders at bay.
And beneath this circle, you could see the layers of circles beneath it, and above this circle, there were no additional circles, only a closed golden dome that extended all the way to the direction of the Pagoda's tower.
"It seems that this is indeed the top floor of the Tongtian Pagoda," Yang Chen murmured, "Could it be... There are two entrances and exits on the top floor of the Tongtian Pagoda?"
Yang Chen was bound to think so, when he escaped with the Chaos Cauldron back then, he decided not to enter the Eye of the Sky Demon and then go out. There must be another exit that led directly to Shushan.
When Luo Xiaoxiao learned about the situation at the Tongtian Pagoda and the Ten Thousand Demon Realm, she couldn't help but smile and ask, "Could we go out?"
Yang Chen nodded, "Mostly so, let's go and find out if there are any other exits. Although this top floor is also large, it will not be like the first floor where you can’t even see the edge for hundreds of kilometers, and if you look carefully, you should be able to find clues."
Luo Xiaoxiao was overjoyed, thinking of being able to go out, she felt nothing in such a dangerous and strange place at that moment.
And Yang Chen was still thinking in his heart, could it be that the ancestors of the Meng family said that they could revive the demons, and it meant that they could release those demons and devils from the Ten Thousand Demon Realm?
If there was a way, with the strength of these sky devils and sky demons in the Ten Thousand Demon Realm, they would at least have quadruple their current combat power if they were able to escape.
Plus, the ones like Yu Xuening and Demon Emperor Zixiao, who were masters of the Yu Qing Heavenly Lightning in the outside world, wouldn’t those righteous cultivators be killed within seconds?
The problem was... the ancestors of the Meng family had already reached such a level, it was so easy to break into the Tongtian Pagoda, and he took the key to the gate of the Eye of the Sky Demon, how could he fall to the point of self-destruction?
Could it be that at that time, there were no other masters in the Ten Thousand Demon Realm who could bring them out? Or was he unable to think of a way to bring other masters out of the place?
Or maybe... 50,000 years ago, it was very likely that it was still earlier than the war in the Yu Xuening era, and there was another secret?
Just when Yang Chen fell into deep thought and was puzzled, suddenly, he heard a faint roar of thunder coming from the bottom of the Tongtian Pagoda!
Is that the Purple Blue Heavenly Lightning?
Yang Chen's heart froze, this heavenly lightning directly descended from the formations of different layers according to the different levels of the intruders.
As for the topmost floor, because it was assumed that the tower was successfully broken, there was no heavenly lightning to attack Yang Chen and the two of them, but each layer below would continuously drop heavenly lightning of different powers.
Yang Chen couldn't help thinking, can someone break into the tower? It stands to reason that the Tongtian Pagoda opens once a year, and it should have closed long ago. No one can come in at this moment...
Unless...it was someone who had been in the pagoda for a long time!
Yang Chen gulped, and although he felt unbelievable, it was very likely that it was Yu Xuening or Wen Tao who entered the tower with him a year ago.
No matter who it was, Yang Chen couldn’t just sit back and ignore it!
Right now, Yang Chen had reason to believe that he had the strength to go from the first floor to the ninety-ninth layer, so he should go down and take a look.
If it was Yu Xuening who was still arguing with Wen Tao, he couldn't leave Yu Xuening alone.
"Miss Luo, you stay here, there will be no heavenly lightning on this floor, it's very safe. I want to go down and check the situation. If I don't come up after a day, then you find a way to search for the exit, there must be one here!”
Yang Chen was worried about taking Luo Xiaoxiao down, so he solemnly warned.
Hearing this, Luo Xiaoxiao anxiously grabbed Yang Chen's arm, "You...don't leave me! Yang Chen, didn't you say you wouldn't leave me, I'm afraid..."
Yang Chen explained the threat in a helpless manner. It was preferable for him to go alone so he wouldn't have to worry about anything. After that, Luo Xiaoxiao only agreed to stay on the top floor.
However, Luo Xiaoxiao said stubbornly at the end, that if Yang Chen didn't come back, she wouldn't go out either, which made Yang Chen feel a little guilty and unbearable.
But in comparison, if he didn’t go down to see what it was, he would always have Yu Xuening in his heart, and he wouldn’t be able to forgive himself.
Furthermore, the devil cultivators of Great Desolate Gate, Yu Lanting, and the others were eager to take their ancestors out of the pagoda. If there was a chance this time, it was better to take Yu Xuening out. Anyway, with Yu Xuening's realm, height, and mindset, she wouldn't be the kind of evildoer who would harm the world, after all, she didn't do that 50,000 years ago.
Big Sister Fox, I hope you're fine... Yang Chen muttered silently in his heart, and then jumped down!
The Chaos Cauldron released a dark light, and the power of chaos began to rage around Yang Chen.
When Yang Chen passed through the first layer of golden formation, as expected, heavenly lighting began to fall from that formation, hitting Yang Chen's position directly!
The heavenly lightning on the top layer was the most powerful, but now Yang Chen's cultivation base, combined with the recovery level of Chaos, was completely out of the question!
When the Purple Blue heavenly lightning entered the chaos's crimson mouth, a rush of purple electric sparks emerged and then vanished without a trace. Instead, it was transformed into pure spiritual energy and injected into Yang Chen and the Chaos Cauldron!
