“Find a solution faster, Jiang Chen.”

Fire Qi Lin said in a bitter way.

“Why don’t you try to think too? If I have the solution, why would I sit here and wait for death? If that piece of ice did not save me just now, I think I might have been brought into the void together with the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda. If that happened, we would be in a great crisis. The Pagoda could protect me well, but if I was brought into the void by the Ice Throne, I might not be able to return to the world without the highest realm of the Great Void Technique,” Jiang Chen said while fear was still lingering in his heart. 

The Ancestral Dragon Pagoda suffered with great shock as well. However, the Pagoda never had a soul with it. Jiang Chen had been curious about this for a long time because supreme divine tools like it or the Cold Ice Throne should have their own souls. 

These two spiritual items were extremely strange. It was Jiang Chen’s first time encountering something like this. In the past, the Pagoda was an omnipotent existence, but today, he realised that there was something that could shake the Ancestral Dragon. He did not know whether it was a good thing or bad, and it made him hesitate.

“Now, I can only try whatever I can think of. I am going to try the Myriad Qi Cauldron and see if I could suppress the two of you.”

Jiang Chen came up with the idea and this would be his last trump card. If the Myriad Qi Cauldron was unable to suppress the two spiritual items, then he had no chance anymore and could only surrender himself to fate. However, Jiang Chen did not like to let his destiny be controlled under others’ hands.

“Heavenly Cauldron shakes the universe!” 

Jiang Chen roared in rage. 

The Myriad Qi Cauldron stood up with its unparalleled mightiness. At the moment, both the ice block and the Throne were stunned as if the time had been frozen, albeit for a while.

“It worked!”

Fire Qi Lin was thrilled at the moment.

Jiang Chen finally heaved a sigh of relief, seeing that the  Myriad Qi Cauldron managed to suppress the Ice Throne. The ice block was unable to resist the Cauldron’s suppression and remained motionless at the same place. Jiang Chen could sense that the ice block was afraid of the Myriad Qi Cauldron even though it did not seem to have any spiritual consciousness.  

When Jiang Chen looked at the ice block, the man in it seemed to blink his eyes for a split second. Then, in the next second, everything went back to silence. Although that just happened for a split second, Jiang Chen was still able to catch the scene. Deep in his heart, he hoped that he was seeing things because he felt that that man was even more dreadful than the Ice Throne, even if the ice block had once saved his life.

The Myriad Qi Cauldron was not an ordinary thing as it was the Craftsman God’s most precious treasure. It was not a simple tool, hence Jiang Chen was unable to completely master it yet. 

“Such an intense air of spiritual spring. 

The Fire Qilin suddenly awakened and took a deep breath. Jiang Chen now only realised that the intense air was around. Furthermore, it was actually released from the ice block. Jiang Chen squinted his eyes as he became even more curious about the ice block and the man now.

He then walked towards the ice block step by step, and then he put his palm on it. However, he noticed that he was unable to melt the ice block at all.

“It’s strange. My divine strength is not able to melt this ice block.”

Jiang Chen said in doubt.

After that, Jiang Chen casted the dreadful Five Elemental True Fire. He was ready to melt the ice block with the fire. Unfortunately, even after some time, the ice block remained in good condition without showing any sign of being melted. Jiang Chen and the Fire Qilin exchanged a glance and their countenance fell. 

“It’s strange, isn’t it? Even your Five Elemental True Fire isn’t able to melt the ice?”

Fire Qilin murmured, dumbstruck by this ice block.

“This ice block is definitely not a normal ice. However, even if it is an extreme ice, I don’t believe it would be that difficult to melt.”

Jiang Chen was stubborn, so he continued to use the Five Elemental True Fire to melt the ice block for another hour. But, it did not show any sign of melting, so he finally gave up as he really had no way to deal with the ice block. On the other hand, it seemed like water droplets were falling down from the ice block.

However, Jiang Chen knew that it was not melted by his Five Elemental True Fire. They were the water droplets that flowed down then gradually became a stream flowing afar. 

“Now I know that the source of the spiritual spring comes from this ice block. But why couldn’t my Five Elemental True Fire melt it? Its water drops so slowly, I have no idea when would it stop flowing.”

Jiang Chen was enlightened. But why would this ice block so hard? It seemed unrelated to its hardness. This was the first time Jiang Chen saw something that could withstand Five Element True Fire. Ice and fire supposedly went against each other. If Jiang Chen’s Five Elemental True Fire did not work this time, this ice palace must be odd as well.

“If Five Element True Fire doesn’t work, how about the Karmic Fire of Red Lotus?”

Jiang Chen had the idea suddenly, making the corner of his mouth overflow with a smile. If Jiang Chen could find something that could withstand the Karmic Fire of Red Lotus, he would find it really interesting. 

“Miss Red Lotus? I found something that you might not be able to melt.” 

Jiang Chen said in the Myriad Qi Cauldron, but he did not get any response.

“Miss Red Lotus? I know that you must be listening. My Five Elemental True Fire is an unparalleled existence, but it can’t melt the ice, so I think your Karmic Fire of the Red Lotus would not be able to do it as well, right? Haih. Nevermind, I will find another way. But I think there’s nothing in the world that could melt this ice block. It’s mythical.”

Jiang Chen said sincerely, his words were full of regret.

“There’s nothing under heaven that my Karmic Fire of the Red Lotus could not melt.” Red Lotus said faintly. 

Jiang Chen was thrilled because he knew it. He knew that Red Lotus would not be able to resist the temptation. She had self-proclaimed that she had the most powerful fire under heaven and even Jiang Chen’s Five Elemental True Fire could not compare with it. Of course she would definitely be tempted as she had her pride in her heart. 

A lady who was wearing red clothes was inside the Myriad Qi Cauldron. Her face was extremely beautiful. The Fire Qilin was stunned for a second and took a few steps backwards unconsciously after looking at her. He was pale because Red Lotus had given him great pressure that he could not withstand. She was like a mountain that made the Fire Qilin raise up his head to look upon. He was unable to look at her eyes and dared not to look at her.

The Fire Qilin now was even more impressed by Jiang Chen. Who is he? How would he have such a formidable helper? Her strength was unpredictable and the Fire Qilin did not dare to make any prediction actually. When Red Lotus gave him a light glance just now, his heart trembled. Red Lotus’ eyes gave out the mightiness as if she could devour anything in the world.
