Chapter 772: Filial Piety (1)


Something heavy fell into the water.

Lu Sheng plunged into the dark blue pond like a cannonball, creating a splash that was more than 10 meters tall. The gravitational force increased the speed of his fall, and he stabbed into the depths of the pond like a fish.

At the bottom of the dark blue and dark pond were black granite walls that had holes in them like a beehive.

When Lu Sheng descended, he caught a glimpse of robes disappearing into one of the beehive openings.

Without hesitation, he went after the person.

The water was cold, extremely cold. There were practically no schools of fish or any algae growth. The most peculiar thing about this pond was that its waters were dense.

Lu Sheng thought for a moment that this was not water. However, upon closer inspection, he could not distinguish this liquid from water. Besides its density, this liquid was exactly the same as water.

It even tasted the same.

“Glug, glug, glug…”

He blew a stream of bubbles and shot into the beehive opening. He intended to catch up with the wearer of the robes he saw.

However, when he got into the little cave, he could not see any trace of another person within the pitch-black and winding tunnel.

His surroundings were dark and quiet. Lu Sheng proceeded at speed and passed another bend. He moved with incredible agility; even though this body of his had no special abilities related to water, his main body had gained insight on water-related rules and nature.

As he applied it in his current situation, he moved with a speed on par with the swiftest of fishes.

After chasing for more than 10 minutes, there was a suddenly faint glow at the end of the darkness. There seemed to be someone talking at the other end of the light.

“Cliss, Chris, Arridarras!”

“Cliss, Chris, Arridarras!”

The muffled chants sounded like cheers or shouts of prayers. They were coming from that light.

Lu Sheng moved closer. The light source was right above his head. It glowed with a faint blue hue and illuminated the water column from above.

Lu Sheng’s body was cast in a blue light.

He paused slightly and listened intently. However, the voices which he was able to hear just moments ago seemed to fade away as he concentrated on them.

Lu Sheng waited for a little while longer. He no longer heard any new sounds from the other end.

He narrowed his eyes and silently floated up so that his eyes were above water.

He was greeted with a ghastly pale sight. It was bright, almost too bright.

The sun hung in the ghastly pale sky like a silver oyster. However, when Lu Sheng cast his gaze at it, he could feel a heavy sense of death and withering.

To him, the sun appeared like a withering flower.

He shifted his gaze to his surroundings.

Everywhere he looked, there were endless piles of bones.

The wind disturbed the bone powder that had settled on the landscape, forming a white, misty sandstorm which traveled slowly across the land. The bones on the other side could be vaguely seen.

Lu Sheng cast his senses about. He did not pick up any living creature. Then, he slowly pulled himself out of the pond.

“This place…” He looked in the faraway direction. As far as his eyes could see, the land was covered in piles of bones.

Some of these piles formed lofty mountains that touched the skies. Some formed a vast plain where a horse could gallop quickly across. Everywhere he looked, he could only see bones and more bones.

Lu Sheng walked away from the pond. Then, he turned back to look at the place where he emerged from.

The pond was covered by a giant bony palm. He had just walked through the opening between the bone and the pond.

What surprised Lu Sheng was that although he had seen his fair share of bones, the bones before him struck him as odd. They were all bones from humanoid creatures.

He picked up a random thigh bone from the ground and studied it.

‘It is a human’s thigh bone. Judging from this, the time of death should be more than 10,000,000 years ago…’ With his grandmaster-level medical skills, he had absolute confidence in himself for estimating these matters.

He had amazing medical skills and cultivated in many power systems. All he needed was to use some of his Soil Qi to inspect the bone, and he would be able to quickly calculate the age of this bone with various equations.

‘However, I clearly heard the voices of men just now…’ Lu Sheng looked up at his surroundings. There was no other sound besides the wind.

He narrowed his eyes, and his nostrils moved as he took a whiff of the air. Then, with a slight preparatory movement, he shot out with lightning speed.

In the span of a few breaths, he covered several hundred meters. He stood atop a huge pile of bones.

He looked down from his high vantage point. There was a badly damaged bone temple in the distance. It seemed deserted. It quickly caught Lu Sheng’s attention.

‘Let’s check that out first. I might be able to get some clues from there.’

He shifted his feet and shot out with lightning speed again. With a few light taps on the bones along the way, he reached the doors of the bone temple in a dozen breaths.

Only two of the bone temple’s four bones walls were left standing. The missing faces were eroded by time and fell.

Lu Sheng walked over the crumbled wall and went inside.

Inside, he found a scene that resembled a classical Chinese garden, with its winding paths, archways, and zones cordoned off by gardens and manors.
