Revalor frowned at the bizarre sight in front of him. At least a thousand meters of the area was covered by the
shadow, and he could not see it through. It was as if a big chunk of that area had disappeared into the void. The most
bizarre thing was the fact that the shadow area reached the sky like a pitch-black tower. He knew it must be Lu An's
skill, but he did not like this skill because he could not observe Lu An. He did not know what happened inside that
space, whether Lu An was winning or losing.
The former Elven King was helpless, but at the same time, he was surprised that Lu An could pull up such a trick. He
never saw the ability like this; even no demon he had encountered so far had the same ability.
"What should we do?" Helia was panicked. She was asked to follow Lu An by Kang Xue to ensure Lu An's safety. With
the current situation, she did not know what happened to Lu An inside that thing. With the tower-like shadow in
front of her, she was not sure that her Light Elemental Power could neutralize the shadow.
Yeon Hee and The Miragul were shocked by Lu An's ability. Yeon Hee compared herself with Lu An, and she quickly
realized that the gap between them was just too big. At this moment, she realized that Lu An's Shadow Elemental
Power was more complete than hers. She could not achieve what Lu An had achieved during the ght against
Drakengard, manipulating all the shadows as if everyone's shadow was his. She could not execute the same skill as Lu An did.
The Miragul was shocked because Lu An could ght against the King tow in tow. He thought the human would die in
the hand of Drakengard. That was why he was willing to lead the Tang Empire's force toward the King of the rst
oor. If The King wiped out the Tang Empire, then the oath ceremony would be nullied. He and his family would be
freed from the shackle put on them. That was the demon's plan, but he never thought the human could ght evenly
against Elder Drake. But then The Miragul quickly realized something, it was just one human. What if all the humans
came here and hunted Elder Drake? Miragul realized that his plan would never work, but it was a relief at the same
time that he did not try to pull another obvious trick on the humans, or he and his family would die for sure.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the Shadow Realm, a big group approached the source of vibration. They were from
the First Order Guild, and they sensed the earthquake from afar. Herman Bonivido thought it was a natural
earthquake, but the frequent vibration and the unnatural continuity of the earthquake were suspicious. He quickly
realized it might not be the earthquake but caused by something.
He led all twenty-ve hundred subordinates toward the source of the vibration, and he saw the pitch-black pillar
toward the sky. Herman could feel the earthquake coming from the black thing; hence he approached it with his subordinates.
"Are you sure it's safe to approach that black thing, Sir?" Henry, the second Vice Guild Leader of the First Order Guild,
asked Herman for the third time. The black thing was suspicious already, added with the strong earthquake was just
more reason not to approach that thing. It looked dangerous, and bringing all their force there was not the right thing
to do; at least, that was what he felt with the current situation.
"We can't split up, Henry. We don't know what awaits us in the tower," Herman shook his head. "Who knows, that
black thing is the path to the second oor, we don't know. If we want to investigate it, we investigate it together. You
should already know that the World Government regards us as a nuisance. If we split and meet with the World
Government, there's a high chance you will be killed or captured."
Henry could not deny that possibility. He recognized the danger from the World Government; splitting up might be
dangerous for them. He had no choice but to follow the order even though he still thought of not approaching the
black thing because of the danger it might possess.
Herman was amazed by the black thing as he raised his head up. He could not see the end of this black, and he was
more condent that this black thing might be the way to reach the second oor. Even though he had not discovered
the resource the System talked about on the rst oor, he would rather choose to be the rst faction to reach the
second oor than looking for resources on the rst oor. The resources on the second oor might be more valuable
than on the rst oor, after all.
When Herman reached a hundred meters distance from the black thing, he sensed something coming toward him. He
raised his right hand and shouted, "Stop! Don't move!"
Something crashed in front of him, a meter away from his feet. Herman ignored the thing in front of him and
searched where this thing came from. However, he failed to see anyone around. As the dust settled down, the thing
that crashed in front of him was revealed, and it was an arrow.
"Stop there! We will consider you as our enemy if you walk past the arrow!" Herman heard the voice in his ears. The
voice was like someone speaking next to him, but he knew the voice was coming from the other side of the black thing.
Herman furrowed his brow as he recalled the Earth Tournament. He was carefully thinking about the player that was
capable enough to do this kind of trick. But he did not remember there was an archer in the tournament. At least there
was no strong archer to do this kind of stunt. He tried to identify who he talked with as he did not want to mess with
the wrong person.
Herman quickly motioned his subordinates not to get provoked by the voice, "Let me take care of this. Stay silent!"
After saying that, he looked toward the black thing, "I am Herman Bonivido, The First Order Guild's Guild Leader.
May I know who you are?" He remained polite even though the opposite part sounded arrogant.
