Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 2511
Everything could be clearly seen with a clear mind
The one who could break through the formation was none other than one’s self. However, their desire and dedication toward the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart made them get caught in danger and they were unable to escape. Jiang Chen could feel that either the Yu siblings or Xue Liang were strongly dedicated to attain the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart, even as important as their lives.
In other words, how is it possible for them to find the way of breaking through the Peach Blossom Formation when they were blinded by their own obsession with the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart? They could only escape if they learned to let go of their desire for the treasure.
Jiang Chen was calm and relieved. Even though the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart was important to him, it’s not worth his life. Since ancient times, treasures always belong to those who deserve it. He knew that it was not easy to get the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart as it only bears fruit once in a thousand years.
He believed that the Peach Blossom Formation was closely related with the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart.
When he completely overcame his obsession with the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart, he realized that all the illusion of the Peach Blossom Formation had disappeared. It was just a common Peach Blossom Spring. When you stop all the distracting thoughts, everything could be clearly seen.
This was the way to break through the formation!
Jiang Chen became enlightened, understanding this formation only existed in their heart. When the obsession in their heart grew stronger, the Peach Blossom Formation would also become more complicated and even impossible to break through.
“Jiang Chen, have you found the way to break through the formation?”
Yu Er’niang held Jiang Chen’s hand tightly and asked. She was on cloud nine when she noticed that Jiang Chen looked a little relieved.
“I found it. It is just smoke and mirrors rather than a formation. For those without any distracting thoughts and desire of competing over the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart, this Peach Blossom Spring will be just a paradise with breathtaking views. But for those who desire the treasure, this place will become like a prison in hell.”
Jiang Chen smiled slightly. That was why the old gibbon regarded this place as a peaceful paradise. Everyone would see the Peach Blossom Spring differently with different thoughts.
“The formation will disappear naturally when you get rid of your desire towards the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart.”
“It’s just that easy?”
Yu Huafan gazed at Jiang Chen and felt the solution was unbelievable.
“Yes, it’s just that easy.”
Jiang Chen shrugged. He could see a high road to get out of the Peach Blossom Spring in front of him.
Yu Huafan took a deep breath, remaining calm and removing all the distracting thoughts. However, the Peach Blossom Spring remained the same when he opened his eyes again.
“It’s impossible, you’re lying. Why couldn’t I get out of this Peach Blossom Spring? Everything here is still the same and I cannot find any way out.”
Yu Huafan asserted.
“Let me try it.”
Yu Er’niang remove the distracting thoughts from her mind immediately. However, she was still unable to find a way out just like Yu Huafan. The Peach Blossom Formation was still the same, unpredictable and mysterious.
Yu Jingfan and Xue Liang did the same thing but none of them were successful. There was no change in their eyes.
Jiang Chen frowned heavily and murmured.
“It’s not possible. I found my way out but why couldn't you guys do that?”
“I think it is because we couldn’t remove those distracting thoughts completely. The Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart is just too important for us. It is nearly impossible for us to get rid of it.”
Yu Er’niang whispered after considering for a while. At this moment, everyone was silent and looked anxious. It was true that their desire for the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart was deeply rooted in their heart and it was impossible for them to remove it immediately. This could not be achieved in a moment. On the other hand, Jiang Chen could stop all the distracting thoughts and see everything clearly. However, it did not mean that everyone could do the same like him, even Xue Liang failed to do so.
Jiang Chen sighed. It seemed like these people were just too obsessed over the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart and that was why they could not get rid of it completely. They would not be able to get out of here if they could not break the formation.
Jiang Chen was worried and shocked. The way of getting out was just a step away but the four of them still could not escape from this Peach Blossom Formation.
“What should we do now? You’re the only one who can leave here.”
Yu Er’niang felt despair. Even though they had tried hard to remove all the thoughts in their heart, they still failed to do so as their desire for the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart was deep-seated. Even Jiang Chen could not change their mind.
Jiang Chen wished to bring them out of here but it seemed like an impossible task. If they could not change their mind, they would be trapped in this Peach Blossom Formation forever.
Jiang Chen heaved a deep sigh and felt helpless. He could feel that Yu Er’niang was in despair. If they could not escape from here, it also meant that they would never be able to get the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart. They were worried and helpless at that moment. Even Jiang Chen realized that it was impossible to make them remove their distracting thoughts, but he did not want to look at Yu Er’niang being so helpless and lonely.
Jiang Chen did not know about their story but he realized that the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart was important to them, even deep-rooted in their heart and they could not help but think about it. They were completely obsessed about it. Jiang Chen could not change all of these, Therefore, they would not be able to get out from the Peach Blossom Formation.
Jiang Chen could feel the sorrow, loneliness, helplessness and remorse in Yu Er’niang’s eyes. She was acting like a woman who experienced all those depression and desolation in her life. And the determination in her eyes that Jiang Chen saw in the past was now nowhere to be seen.
Yu Er’niang, who was charming and attractive, formidable and never inferior to men, was completely defeated by the demon in her heart. Even Yu Jingfan and Yu Huafan were the same, they felt truly disappointed. As they would know the result with just a try.
What actually made her live with such a strong obsessiveness？Were they just reckless with greed or planning to do something else? Jiang Chen was curious about all of them. But he could feel that Yu Er’niang was truly sincere and innocent.
Xue Liang’s determination was not as strong as them, but he was unwilling to give up easily. He was not obsessed with the Scarlet Cloud Ancient Vine Heart but refused to be a failure.
“I will definitely help you get out of here.”
Jiang Chen remained silent once again. He promised to get them all out of this Peach Blossom Spring.
The formation varied in the foundation of the formation and the eye of the formation. If they wished to make the formation collapse completely, destroying the foundation of the formation would be the only way.
