Gu Xijiu threw the animals at the bloody plum tree one by one. As usual, the bloody plum tree sucked the animals dry in no time.
The mussel clenched its fist at the sightof what it witnessed.
The bloody tree was a bigger eater than it was.
Lan Yue did not quite understand. Gu Xijiu was feeding the tree, how was she going to break the formation?
“The array formation is an ancient evil formation. It is not that I cannot break it, but if we do it the usual way, the man behind the vicious plan will be alarmed. By the time we break in, Lan Waihu and Lan Jingyi will probably be long gone,” Di Fuyi continued to explain.
Yan Chen looked at Gu Xijiu in bewilderment. “Is she trying to do it unusually? Once the tree is well fed, does it mean that the door will open itself?”
Soon, there was a little movement on the ground. The bloody plum tree shifted a little, and a huge hole emerged at the bottom of the trunk.
Lan Yue was utterly shocked. He could not believe what had just happened before his eyes. He thought that the tree would open its entrance automatically once it was well fed. Shortly, his speculation was proven wrong. Two men emerged from the hole.
They looked like scholars from the way they dressed. They did not seem like they had just emerged from the ground; in fact, they looked more like two scholars who were just about to leave the examination hall.
They observed their surroundings, and one of them noticed something. “What is going on? The tree is unusually active tonight. Where did all the food come from?”
The other, who was equally confused, shook his head. “Let’s check the perimeter, so our master will not be distracted from his work.”
The two of them quickly took a detour around the plum garden.
They did not forget to seal the entrance before they left, so the bloody plum tree returned to its normal appearance.
Gu Xijiu and the rest of them stayed floating in the air within the wizardry barrier that had been set up by Di Fuyi so that they could stay unnoticed.
Yan Chen turned to look at Gu Xijiu with eyes full of admiration, for she could always find the solution.
Both the men took a quick look around the plum garden. Soon, they found a wild boar and a wolf within the woods.
One of the men responded, “Actually, there is nothing odd. Our master has once told said that the plum garden would release a unique scent to attract preys. The scent is probably stronger tonight.”
While they were chatting, they also performed a special technique to open the sealed entrance. The hole appeared again, and the staircases emerged to guide them in.
Also, they did not forget to seal the hole again to return the tree to its usual appearance.
Many staircases led them deep into the ground. On both sides of the walls, many candles were flickering in the dark. These unique candles would not be extinguished even after burning for a thousand years.
While they were walking, one of the men had a shiver running through his body. “Strange. I have a feeling that someone is following us,” he confessed.
His companion took a quick look around and saw nothing. Relieved, he answered, “There is nothing to be worried about. Who could have possibly entered this place? We have always been very careful when opening and closing the entrance. Forget about humans; I do not think that even a fly can make its way in. Don’t you overthink!”
The man scratched his head in bewilderment. “I also do not think that others could make their way in.” He sighed. “Maybe it is because there have been too many deaths around, so I keep thinking that their spirits stay behind everywhere.”
He continued to walk while he talked. After a while, he realized that his companion was far behind. He turned around and waited for him. “Why are you so slow all of a sudden?” He complained.
