When Mu Yun Gui woke up, she was in a daze, it took her a while to realize that she was not dead.

Every bone inside her body was hurting badly, but Mu Yun still struggled to get up, and move. It caused the wound on her back to crack again.

The blood slowly seeped into the water and floated out of the cave. Several poisonous crocodiles were lying around the entrance of the cave. 

And when they smelled the whiff of the blood, they started rolling and roaring, but still, none of them dared to come inside the cave.

Such a simple movement almost consumed all of Yun Gui’s strength. With the support of the stone wall, she stood up.

After standing up, she noticed the flock of poisonous crocodiles wandering outside the cave. She couldn’t help but raise her head, and carefully stared at the cave.

 “Where is this? Why don’t they dare to come inside?”

Those low-level beasts had no consciousness, they just relied on their instincts. They had smelled the smell of her blood but still did not dare to step inside, which meant that there was something more dangerous inside the cave.

Mu Yun Gui’s thought was very simple. No matter what was inside the cave, she could do nothing but walk inside, otherwise, those poisonous crocodiles would eat her, if she went outside.

She could only calm down and adjust her breath. If you met a high-level beast, then it was just her fate.

Mu Yun had no energy, so she found a flat stone nearby and started meditating while sitting cross-legged. Her spiritual power moved in the body for a whole week, and finally, after a week the wound on her body solidified and no longer continued to lose blood. 

She had no replenishing pill, so she could regain her energy by doing meditation. She had no idea of time in the cave, after meditating for so long she was barely able to replenish her spiritual power by half.

This cave was weird, the aura here was extremely scarce. After accumulating a little aura, the aura would be drawn away by some invisible force. 

Mu Yun Gui tried for a long time but was unable to replenish her spiritual-power fully, so she stopped.    

The poison-toothed crocodiles were still staring at her from outside, so Mu Yun could only walk in the cave, although the inside might be more dangerous than outside.

The terrain in the cave was strange, if it wasn’t for the dripping water from above, Mu Yun Gui almost suspected she was on the ground, and the force from the ground pulling her.

The more she went inside, the more obvious the gravitational pull became. Mu Yun took an adventurous decision, following this pull, she went inside.

She wanted to see what had absorbed her spiritual power.

After walking a long way, Mu Yun suddenly found that there was no dripping sound of water around her, and the four walls became frosty, even the entire ground was covered in ice.

 Mu Yun Gui endured the bone-chilling cold and walked to the innermost part of the cave. As soon as she entered it, she was taken aback by the scene inside.

There was a wide hall, with polished walls and the ground covered in thick frost, but still, some formation patterns were faintly visible under the ice layer. 

And in the center of the hall, there was a huge piece of ice placed.

Mu Yun Gui calmly approached the ice bed while holding a sword in one hand.

Inside the piece of ice, a person was lying. With every step she took, a strong murderous aura resisted her approach. 

She was still far away from the ice-block, so she couldn’t see the person’s face. She could vaguely feel a sense of holiness like snow lotus emitting from him.

How come there are people here? 

Mu Yun Gui instinctively became vigilant, and tentatively asked, “Who are you?”

Mu Yun Gui’s voice echoed in the cave without any response. Mu Yun Gui carefully observed the cave, she found traces of water erosion but didn’t see any sword marks on the ground. 

The man was frozen without resistance at all. Otherwise, why would there be no traces of fighting on the ground?

If there was no struggle, it was unlikely that this person was a monster. There were no outsiders in recent years, and it was unlikely that a cultivator sought revenge here.

Even if it was someone’s revenge, the grievances had nothing to do with her.

Now that monsters were raging, and human life was hard. So, as a community, we should watch and help each other. 

Anyone who had seen an injured cultivator had an obligation to help him. After all, one more person would be helpful in the fight against monsters.  

Mu Yun Gui wanted to help the fellow cultivator, but this seal covering the person was very strange. Mu Yun tried all the methods, but she still couldn’t unlock them. 

But when she unconsciously put her fingers on her neck, she touched her necklace, and she hesitated for a moment.

This was the last thing her mother left for her. If she used it, then she would no longer have the last relics of her mother.

But relics were dead things and humans were living beings. If her mother knew why she used it, she would have agreed with her.

Mu Yun Gui made up her mind, and took out the key necklace left by her mother, muttered a few words silently, then dripped a drop of her blood onto the key. 

The key engraved with a silver frost symbol began to glow and slowly turned into white light. The white light submerged in the ice, and after a while, the invisible oppression in the cave disappeared.

Seeing the method worked, Mu Yun Gui breathed a sigh of relief. She immediately stepped forward and smashed the block of ice with her sword. She was exhausted, coupled with the fact that she was poisoned and injured, her movement was weak. 

After the dizziness eased in her brain, she held the sword again. But this time, when she lowered her head, Mu Yun was caught off guard.
