297 That Was Close, I Was Almost Fooled
“What’s wrong with Elder Ye?”
Qian Yuan and Shen Changling felt that Ye Xuan’s gaze on them was a little strange. His dark eyes revealed a little red, without any emotion, but only indifference and endless coldness.
He gave people the feeling that he was a god high above, looking down at the ants crawling under his feet. This kind of Ye Xuan gave people a particularly weird feeling, not to mention that he had never used this kind of gaze on people before, so they couldn’t help but feel a little strange now.
“Are you alright?”
Ye Xuan shook his head, a red light flickering in his eyes. He said in a cold voice, “I’m fine.”
Not only did his answer not reassure the two, but it also made them even more worried because Ye Xuan really didn’t look like he was fine.
Ye Xuan’s incantation continued, and the two frowned as they listened. They had clearly agreed to only recite half of the incantation in case of any accidents or unexpected situations.
Looking at the situation now, Ye Xuan wanted to finish reciting the whole incantation. If it really worked, wouldn’t it attract the high priest’s attention?
After all, among them, the high priest was the most familiar with the altar, and it was hard to guarantee that he would not sense it.
Qian Yuan and Shen Changling looked at each other and saw the worry in each other’s eyes.
“Nothing will happen to Elder Ye if he continues like this, right? He doesn’t look like he’s in good condition.”
“Ye Xuan, don’t continue reciting the incantation. We agreed to only read a portion of it.”
Hearing the words of the two people beside him, a violent feeling emerged in Ye Xuan’s heart for no reason. He only felt that it was too noisy, and the red light in his eyes grew even more intense.
“Shut up, stop talking! What do you guys know?”
At this moment, his face was full of hostility. He still had the same face, but it was as if he had changed into a different person. Then, a somewhat conflicted expression appeared on his face, as if he had been separated into two different people. That was the remaining rationality in his body.
“You guys be careful…”
“Not good, something has happened!”
Qian Yuan and Shen Changling realized that something was wrong with him. They quickly exerted force in their palms, and white and blue spiritual power transformed into ropes that tied Ye Xuan’s body, trying to pull him out and away from the altar.
However, Ye Xuan’s feet seemed to be rooted to the ground. No matter how hard the two tried, they couldn’t drag him away at all. The speed at which he chanted the incantation became faster and faster, and the altar had already started up.
The unknown symbols and patterns appeared once again. Although he didn’t understand the meaning behind them, he could feel the great danger within.
Shen Changling was still fine. Since he was a human, he was not affected so quickly. But Qian Yuan was different. The familiar sense of powerlessness came back.
The pressure brought by the altar was gradually increasing. It was as if all the life and essence in Qian Yuan’s body had been sucked away. His entire body was limp and weak, and he almost fell to the ground.
Looking at Qian Yuan’s pale face, Shen Changling was anxious. Now that Ye Xuan was stuck in place, if Qian Yuan fell, he would not be able to save the two of them with his own strength.
“What’s wrong with you?”
Qian Yuan laughed bitterly as he replied, “This altar is extracting my power again.”
Currently, he only had half of his strength, but he was suppressed by this altar again. He couldn’t even protect himself now, let alone save Ye Xuan.
Shen Changling was dumbfounded. He didn’t expect this situation at all. At this moment, he could take care of Ye Xuan but couldn’t take care of Qian Yuan. Unfortunately, he wasn’t strong enough and couldn’t save any of them.
Fortunately, on the other side, Ye Xuan’s rationality finally took over. Looking at Qian Yuan’s pale face, he said simply, “Hurry up! Blood essence!”
Qian Yuan’s reaction was quick, and he quickly understood the meaning behind Ye Xuan’s words. A mouthful of blood from the tip of his tongue accurately sprayed into the altar.
The golden dragon blood was slowly fading as if it was being absorbed by something very quickly. Taking advantage of this, Ye Xuan took the initiative and stopped chanting the incantation.
With Qian Yuan in one hand and Shen Changling in the other, he jumped off the altar. After doing this, he could not help but wipe the sweat on his forehead. “That was really close.”
Ye Xuan turned around. The dragon blood had disappeared, and the altar had returned to its original state as if everything that had just happened was an illusion.
Just a little bit more and he would have sacrificed Qian Yuan and Shen Changling. Fortunately, he stopped at the last moment.
How could such a strange and evil altar be satisfied with just two lives? Not to mention how many lives were lost when it was created.
Just after the high priest woke up, many demonic beasts had fallen into the devil’s claws.
If Ye Xuan really did as the voice said, even if he really obtained supreme power, his mind would soon be eroded and he would completely lose himself. He would become a puppet of this altar and only know how to kill and sacrifice lives.
This kind of power was not what he wanted to pursue.
Qian Yuan and Shen Changling were still in shock. “No wonder you looked like that just now. We nearly thought that we were done for.”
It was all thanks to Ye Xuan’s strong willpower. Besides, he had the system in his hands, so there was no need to take such a shortcut. If it were someone else, he really wouldn’t dare to say it.
After enjoying the feeling of possessing great power, how could he easily bear to give it up?
Not to mention that he was only temporarily paying with two lives.
After escaping from danger, Qian Yuan and Shen Changling couldn’t help but sigh.
“It seems that the incantation is useful, but it’s too dangerous. It’s easy to get lost in the altar. It won’t work against the high priest.”
Ye Xuan shook his head and replied, “No, although it’s dangerous, the chances of success are still very high. I’m completely confident that I can kill the high priest.”
“But what if you are really bewitched by the altar…”
