Chapter 637: City Construction (8)
It gives me such a sense of accomplishment to see the city wall coming together.
When the wall is completed, I will get started on the buildings in the city.”
“A city wall built with obsidians is strong.
But, if you go to the central tower of the city, you will find something interesting,” Xiu suggested casually.
Shen Yanxiao raised her eyebrows.
Xiu seemed to know a lot about the Sun Never Sets.
She did not ask more questions but headed toward the citys central tower, as Xiu had suggested.
The tower stood in the very center of the city.
It had endured many years of hardship, but the building still retained its original appearance even though it was a bit worn out.
Inside the tower, the dark steps were scorched black.
Shen Yanxiao tried to find access to the underground.
Finally, she noticed a hidden passage under a broken statue of a demon god.
Shen Yanxiao used a light crystal as she headed toward the pathway to light it up.
The narrow path allowed only one person at a time.
The wet walls made her feel chilly.
It seemed like the narrow path had no end, and the spiral staircase meandered downward as if it had no stop.
Shen Yanxiao did not know how long it had been, but she was tired when she reached the end of the staircase.
She saw an old stone gate.
On both sides of the gate were some exquisite carved patterns.
It must have been hundreds or even thousands of years, but the designs were still there to unfold before the visitors eyes.
It was proof of the craftsmans excellent skills.
“Push it open,” Xiu said.
Shen Yanxiao stepped forward.
She took a deep breath and reached out to push the stone gate open.
However, the stone gate, which was not that big, was incredibly heavy.
Shen Yanxiao exerted all her strength, but it did not budge.
“This must be a joke! What is the door made of Why is it so heavy” Shen Yanxiao rubbed her sore wrist.
She concentrated all her strength on her hands, but the door remained closed.
She could usually crush a stone wall with only one punch.
“Put your hands on the door.
Let me do it,” Xiu said in his clear and refreshing voice.
Shen Yanxiao did as he instructed and put her hands on the door.
Then, she felt as if someone had put their cold hands on hers.
A hint of coolness spread from her palms, but she could see nothing.
The stone gate was pushed open.
Shen Yanxiao opened her eyes in surprise.
The coldness disappeared from her hands; Xiu had relinquished his power.
Shen Yanxiao walked into the stone gate with the light crystal in her hand.
The inside must have been sealed off for tens of millions of years, but there were still lighted torches there.
Behind the gate was a vast, round-shaped basement, and there were blue-flamed torches on the wall.
There was no air nor fuel, and yet the flames had continued to burn.
“This is the Sun Never Sets underground resource.
Do you see the black crystal in the center of the room”
Shen Yanxiao looked at the said black crystal in the center of the room.
It was the size of a human head and was dim and dull, like a dusty pearl.
Even as the flames flickered, no light bounced off the black crystal.
It was as if pure darkness had absorbed all the light.
“What is that” Shen Yanxiao walked over there and picked up the dark crystal.
While the crystal was of a considerable size, it was surprisingly light.
Shen Yanxiao could pick it up with ease.
