I Became Invincible After Sweeping The Floor For 70 Years - Chapter 509
509 The Shangqing Sect
This array was far more powerful than the previous one.
Now that the devil-breaking worm had fallen into a deep sleep, Qin Chen and the others could only rely on themselves.
Qin Chen led the group into the array, trying to find a way to break out of it.
He soon discovered that there were some hidden rules in the array.
It was as if the array was purposefully set up to allow those who came later to find a way in.
There must be something wrong with this abnormal situation!
Qin Chen’s heart was filled with apprehensiveness, and he exhaled heavily.
Wasn’t this clearly telling them that if they continued to move forward, they would be exposed?
Qin Chen was unwilling to admit defeat.
He directly led the group forward through some narrow corners, moving forward.
With this, their speed would be neither fast nor slow, and they should be able to avoid these arrays.
Qin Chen and the others hurriedly walked forward.
Soon, they saw some patrolling disciples.
Fortunately, Qin Chen and the others had hidden quite well. The strength of these disciples was not enough to discover them.
If it had been an ordinary intruder, he would have long been discovered by these disciples. At that time, the experts of the entire supreme orthodoxy would come out together.
Whoever dared to do this would undoubtedly end up in a miserable state.
Qin Chen led the group into the array.
He realized that after they passed through the arrays, they naturally came to the gates of the supreme orthodoxy.
There was a huge plaque in front of the door with two big words written on it: Shangqing Sect.
Qin Chen nodded. So this supreme orthodoxy was called the Shangqing Sect.
Soon, everyone continued to move forward.
Here, other than a few disciples cultivating, there were also elders and so on. Almost all of them were in seclusion.
For a moment, no one noticed Qin Chen and the others. It seemed that no one had sneaked into this place before. The defense was extremely relaxed, and there was almost no vigilance.
Finally, Qin Chen and the others managed to slip into the back mountain of the supreme orthodoxy.
The divine tree in the back mountain. It must have been protected by the other party.
The divine tree was probably a treasure of the supreme orthodoxy. They would definitely not be so perfunctory in guarding it.
As expected, Qin Chen and the rest discovered a powerful seal near the divine tree.
If someone who could unravel the seal with the token wasn’t here, it would be impossible to open the seal.
Once there was a strong fluctuation in the seal’s power like becoming bigger or smaller, it would cause the entire supreme orthodoxy to be on guard. At that time, they would all be discovered.
When he thought of this, Qin Chen looked at the divine tree and felt boundless helplessness and unwillingness.
Suddenly, they saw an old man.
The old man was sweeping the floor with a broom. He seemed to have been here for a long time. His eyebrows and beard were all white.
The old man looked at Qin Chen and the others. He did not make a sound but instead became excited.
“You guys aren’t disciples of the Shangqing Sect, right?”
Killing intent appeared in the eyes of Qin Chen and the others. They didn’t know if this old man wanted to expose the fact that they had infiltrated the Shangqing Sect.
If that was the case, they could only strike first to gain the upper hand and exterminate the old man.
However, the old man laughed and said, “Someone has finally come.”
He then said to the crowd, “Follow me.”
Qin Chen and the others looked at each other. They didn’t know what kind of trick this old man was playing, so they could only follow.
They were worried that this old man would pull some tricks and sell them out at a critical moment. It would be too late for them to regret it then.
One must know that this supreme orthodoxy must have an expert in charge. If they were discovered, Qin Chen and the others couldn’t possibly leave unscathed.
Therefore, at this time, everyone’s heart was filled with worry. They did not know what the old man was up to.
They tried to feel the old man’s aura, but there was no fluctuation at all. Could he be an ordinary person?
Such a huge and supreme orthodoxy couldn’t possibly just let an ordinary person guard this important place, right?
The old man led Qin Chen and the others to the weakest point of the array. Then, he said to the crowd, “This place is where the flow of energy is the weakest. As long as you put in the effort, you will definitely be able to break the seal of this great array. At that time, you can take out the fruit of the divine tree.”
Everyone was speechless. Qin Chen had suspected that the old man wanted to harm them, but in the end, the other party did not do anything else. Instead, he pointed out the weak points of the array to Qin Chen.
Qin Chen immediately sent his spiritual will over and found that it was indeed the case. He had refined Zhen Xiezi’s memory fragments before, so he was naturally more skilled in things like arrays and seals.
This meant that the old man did not lie to them.
This made Qin Chen even more confused. Why was this old man treating them like this?
The old man muttered to himself, “I didn’t expect that after so many years, someone would finally be able to break in.”
He immediately became excited. He kept persuading Qin Chen and the others to act quickly. Otherwise, it would be bad if the time dragged on and changes occurred.
Qin Chen could see the divine tree behind the seal with his spiritual will. There were golden fruits hanging on it, emitting a mysterious wave.
This made it really hard for him to control his desire. Then, he nodded to the crowd.
Everyone immediately bombarded the seal with their power. Soon, a big hole was broken in the seal. Even if they wanted to block such a big hole, they would not be able to do so. Therefore, they would ultimately be discovered.
However, as long as Qin Chen and the others went in through this big hole, stole the fruit, and left, it would have nothing to do with them anymore.
The old man looked at Qin Chen and said, “If you can successfully obtain the fruit, don’t forget to bring me a few.”
Qin Chen recalled that there seemed to be countless golden fruits hanging on the divine tree, so he nodded. The other party’s small request was really nothing. He could do it with a raise of his hand.
After that, everyone entered the array. The old man simply lay on the ground with his legs crossed and seemed to be humming a tune.
After an unknown amount of time, the old man finally opened his eyes.
He could feel the fluctuations coming from within the array. Qin Chen and the others must have succeeded. He rubbed his hands in excitement.
