Chapter 1046: Floating Dust


What methods could he use to control the Yan Huang Golden Bead?

How could he, as the Ancient Emperor had put it, “truly” get the Yan Huang Golden Bead?

While Wu Yu had appeared at his current position within a short period of time, his mind was actually blank. 

Of course, his reaction was still quick. Perhaps he had hesitated for an instant, but he was fast. He changed the Infernal Sky Pillar of Nine Fetters in his hands into a large crucible. He turned it over and used it to block the path of the Yan Huang Golden Bead.

Following Wu Yu's bright idea, once the Yan Huang Golden Bead entered it, he would immediately stow away the Infernal Sky Pillar and enter the Floating Dreams Pagoda. The huge crucible of the Infernal Sky Pillar would be the first layer of seals to lock down the Yan Huang Golden Bead. The Heaven Devouring Avatar inside the pagoda could exert some control while the Floating Dreams Pagoda would act as the second layer of sealing. He thought that the Yan Huang Golden Bead would not be able to crash its way out of the Floating Dreams Pagoda. Hence, the possibility of success was still high.

He only needed to bring the Infernal Sky Pillar in and his real body could immediately exit. This entry and exit would not take much time. At that point, not many of the people chasing would reach him yet. Wu Yu had to rush to use the Somersault Cloud and directly leap out of this place and escape before the whole group arrived!

This way, the Yan Huang Golden Bead would land in his hands unexpectedly....

Of course, this was all planned in a blink.

At this moment, the most important step was to use the huge crucible that was transformed from the Infernal Sky Pillar to engulf the Yan Huang Golden Bead. The Yan Huang Golden Bead advanced in a linear pathway. Wu Yu had placed the huge crucible in position quickly, and at this moment, the eye-piercing, golden light had reached him!

Success or failure was in this instant!

At this point, Wu Yu forced his eyes wide open to capture the trajectory of the Yan Huang Golden Bead. This could be the defining moment. 

Hu!

After an instant, the golden light disappeared before his eyes. Wu Yu could only laugh bitterly. The Yan Huang Golden Bead actually acted as though it was alive. It did not advance in a linear fashion. When Wu Yu pushed the huge crucible in an attempt to cover it, the Yan Huang Golden Bead suddenly changed its course of direction and directly flew past Wu Yu at a speed which his Somersault Cloud could not catch up to.

He failed....

"It's Wu Yu again!"

"Scram!"

Wu Yu did not dare to be careless even though he had just failed. At this moment, these hundreds of people were pushing and racing against each other, and had caught up. Wu Yu's current position had blocked their way. Besides, he had appeared twice before them and almost caught the Yan Huang Golden Bead. Many people had hated him since then. At this moment, many fatal attacks were directly thrown at him. If not for the distance between them, Wu Yu would probably have directly crumbled into dust.

This time, Wu Yu did not dare to tarry any moment longer and quickly used his prepared Somersault Cloud to jump out. He escaped from the range of those old fogies before they could arrive. Their goal was the Yan Huang Golden Bead. At this moment, no one cared to chase after him.

Wu Yu steadied himself faraway. At this moment, the Yan Huang Golden Bead entered the golden vortex. The few hundred people following it threw caution to the wind and continued their chase. Also, at this moment, there were many people coming from all directions. In an instant, all of them gave chase. Wu Yu saw that in the instant they entered the golden vortex, there was suddenly an increase in black lightning surrounding the vortex. The sky was riddled with lightning and loud, ringing explosions. It felt as though the sky and earth were flipping over. This should be because those martial cultivators were persistently advancing and chasing after the Yan Huang Golden Bead despite the attacks of the black lightning.

Previously, they might have thought that there would be no need to advance. Perhaps they were cautious of the black lightning. However, now that the Yan Huang Golden Bead was right before their eyes, no one remained calm. Even those at the Primordial Spirit Transformation Realm followed suit and flew up. They probably did not even care for their lives anymore.

Wu Yu had such a good chance previously but had still failed to touch the Yan Huang Golden Bead. Hence, on the contrary, he was no longer anxious now. Because he thought that the others probably did not have a good chance of getting it either. Perhaps the Yan Huang Golden Bead might often appear in front of them from then on. However, Wu Yu thought that there had to be some special way to truly get the Yan Huang Golden Bead.

He wanted to calm down and study what had happened today.

But now the Yan Huang Golden Bead was on the second level. Many people also found out about it and were probably rushing up too. Wu Yu felt that there was no need to remain at the first level of the Ancient Soul Tower.

What Wu Yu did not know was that the mirrors outside had shown the competition for the Golden Bead. Wu Yu had appeared twice in the images and was very outstanding.

The Dark Sea Emperor stroked his chin and murmured, "This Wu Yu does have some ability. His moves are surprising, especially that ability of his to escape and change positions. He is actually the one with the greatest chance of getting the bead. But he is still too weak. After all, he is too young." 

"It is Wu Yu who has gained face for our Yan Huang Tribe. But this time, I think a few of them died."

"People die for treasures, birds die for food. The Ancient Emperor said it clearly, those who are scared have retreated. There's nothing left to say."

"The Yan Huang Golden Bead seems to be at the second level already. All of them are rushing up. But this second level should block and turn many of them away."

Luo Pin also looked when Wu Yu had appeared just now. Actually, she was not clear on Wu Yu's current level, but these two performances had attracted her attention. A gentle smile appeared on her face.

"Indeed, his mystique is interesting. It's just that he's too young, or he would really stand a chance. But I'm curious - if he gets the Yan Huang Golden Bead, the throne will never belong to him. In that case, will the treasures from the 10,000 Kingdoms Pilgrimage belong to him?" the Shackled-God Rogue Dragon beside Luo Pin said calmly.

"He is the Kingmaker. The Ancient Emperor did not make it clear if Prince Le will be able to inherit the throne if his Kingmaker gets the Yan Huang Golden Bead. I don't know if the Regent knows about this. As for the Yan Huang Golden Bead, following the intentions of the Ancient Emperor, if Wu Yu gets it, I think it should belong to him. Of course, privately, Prince Le may not let him have all the treasures."

The other mystical dragons were discussing too.

"Actually, we do not need to discuss such possibilities. The Yan Huang Golden Bead was right before him just now and he still could not catch it. Such a good opportunity will never appear again. There will not be better opportunities for him," the Maple-Leaf Zephyr Dragon from the mystical dragons said.

After he spoke, everyone stopped discussing.

Actually, at this point, there were already three mirrors lit up above them. However, those who had reached the third level first would never imagine that the Yan Huang Golden Bead, which they had thought to be at the ninth level, had only entered the second level of the Ancient Soul Tower from the first level now.

This concerned the future emperor of Yan Huang. Hence, when Wu Yu appeared in the competition, the Yan Huang Tribe also paid extra attention. When Wu Yu had appeared right before the Yan Huang Golden Bead, everyone's heart rose to their throats.

The Regent, the numerous brothers and sisters of the Ancient Emperor, countless lords, and aristocrats had held their breaths.

Actually, one could say that at such a moment, the entire Jambu Realm held their breaths.

Of course, the images in the three mirrors were no longer about Wu Yu. He actually moved without a trace all the time. It was only at crucial moments that he actually appeared.

At this moment, Wu Yu was telling Prince Le that they had reached the point where they had to advance to the second level.

"While risky, I've confirmed that the Yan Huang Golden Bead is up there. We must go up too." Wu Yu looked at the direction where the Yan Huang Golden Bead had disappeared. At this moment, that area was filled with rowdy, black lightning. From time to time, someone would rush up and fight with the lightning. That person might advance to the second level, but there were also people who were struck down by lightning.

"Now those who have heard the news are all rushing into the second level. While risky, we must head upwards too." Prince Le also made the decision.

"Okay." Wu Yu still had to bring them up. So he still had to depend on the Seven Stars Iron Winged Bug.

He remained by the Seven Stars Fortifying Design temporarily to guard it. Without entering it, he rose to the sky together with the Seven Stars Iron Winged Bug.

"That side has the most lightning and it is the most concentrated there. Perhaps the surrounding lightning was attracted to that side. We should look for the place with the least lightning and rush up."

Wu Yu observed and moved at the same time. He gradually neared the golden vortex in the sky. The vortex was unbelievably huge. The black lightning slithered like venomous snakes through the thick, heavy layers of cloud. At this moment, Wu Yu was below that black vortex and could be devoured any time.

Whoosh! The Dark North Royal Obelisk appeared in his hand and turned into a long whip. It coiled around the Seven Stars Fortifying Design. While the Seven Stars Fortifying Design had a certain speed, it would be much faster with Wu Yu pulling it along. While Wu Yu's own speed would decrease as a result, this was inevitable. He had to bring Prince Le along. 

"We are all depending on you, Wu Yu," Prince Le said seriously.

"No problem.  There are many who are going up."

Wu Yu was one who carried a heavy burden. There were plenty of people stronger than him here. These people should have an easier time going up.

After making up his mind, he used his fastest speed. He used his Eyes of Fire and Gold to observe the speedy and violent black lightning and quickly dove into the golden vortex. This golden vortex was actually a type of swirling fog. It did not seem to form any threat on its own. It seemed to be dust formed from broken sand that rose to the sky. The scary part was the black lightning inside. It seemed to be attracted to living things, and once it appeared nearby, it would immediately pounce and tear into them like ferocious venomous snakes.

"Let's go!" Wu Yu's own speed, in addition to the Seven Stars Fortifying Design that he dragged along, whether it was him or the Seven Stars Fortifying Design, both would become the targets of the black lightning. Now he could only depend on his luck and strength.

Wu Yu sensed that the surrounding black lightning was not as dense as he had imagined. He guessed that it was because too many had forced their way through at this area and had pulled away much of the black lightning here. This was definitely the best time to go up!
