After their search, they found a small town two kilometers away from Fengyang Village, so Gu Ning decided to book a room and park their car there. Leng Shaoting agreed with her after she told him her plan.
Fengyang Village was located in an area near the capital, but because the capital was so large, it took at least an hour and a half of driving for them to get to the small town. And they still needed to walk for another 20 minutes to arrive at Fengyang Village from the small town. Therefore, Gu Ning prepared to leave at 4 pm. It would be 5:30 pm when they arrived at the town, and it would be dinner time. In the winter, the sky went dark at 6 pm, so it was a great time for them to discuss a plan after dinner. They still had two hours to prepare some food and tools before they left.
There were mountains all around Fengyang Village. It was impossible for them to find the ancient grave the moment they got there. It would probably take them hours or even days to find it. And in order to not
attract attention, they couldn’t ask the
villagers. However, no matter whether they could find the ancient grave, they had to go back to the capital tomorrow night.
There were a lot of tools in Gu Ning’s telepathic eyes space, but it wasn’t convenient for her to take them out, because she still didn’t want Leng Shaoting
to know her secret.
For now, Gu Ning wasn’t clear about the condition of the ancient grave. Had only a few found it, or had a majority already found it? However, since antiques dealers were able to sell those bronze objects, the ancient grave must not have been discovered by the
government yet. If the government knew about it, it would shut its entrance and send an archaeological team to do the study. However, the ancient grave was full of Yin, and those archaeologists would be affected
Gu Ning would give Leng Shaoting her night-luminescent pearl to protect him before they got into the ancient grave, but the most important first step was to find the
Two hours later, Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting arrived at the small town which was the one nearest to Fengyang Village. They booked a room and parked their car before they went to have dinner. After dinner, it was almost 6:30 pm, and the sky was completely dark now. The two then set out on their adventure.
Within 20 minutes, Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting arrived at Fengyang Village, which was completely dark. Even with her acute sight, Gu Ning could barely figure out where the road was.
She looked at the surrounding mountains and had no idea where they should start. The mountains were too far. Even though it was hardly possible, Gu Ning still used her Jade Eyes to give it a try. However, unfortunately, her Jade Eyes were only effective within 200 meters, and she couldn’t see the mountains at such a far distance.
Right at this time, they heard a car driving over. In order to not be discovered, Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting immediately hid in the grass at the roadside. A van stopped at the entrance of Fengyang Village and four men who each had a big backpack got out of it.
“Come on! Be careful. Don’t let anyone else find us,” one of them said.
Hearing that, Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting
understood that they came here for nothing
good. They also thought that they could be grave diggers. Gu Ning instantly used her Jade Eyes to scan their backpacks. There were all kinds of tools for grave-digging in their backpacks.
Once they four men left, the van drove away
“Let’s follow them,” Gu Ning said. Leng Shaoting gave her an affirmative nod. After that, they quietly followed the four men.
Half an hour later, they had climbed halfway
up one of the mountains, and the four men never found out that Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting were following them. Afterwards, they stopped at a rather steep rock wall and uncover an area of grass. A hole immediately appeared; it was probably the dug up grave.
The four men fastened ropes and abseiled
After the four men were in the ancient grave for a long while, Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting approached the hole. However, they didn’t get in right away. Gu Ning used her Jade Eyes to check the depth and the four men’s location first in case they met them by accident.
The hole was about 20 meters deep, and there was a tomb tunnel beneath it. About
three or four meters from the tomb tunnel,
there was an anteroom, which was about ten square meters in size. And four coffins were laid in the anteroom. The four coffins had been opened already. That was all that Gu Ning could see with her Jade Eyes.
The four men were in the anteroom but they didn’t stay there because they had already stolen all the valuable objects there. Thus
they were walking towards other anterooms,
but it wasn’t easy to get into an anteroom.
From the ancient objects that they had already found, they knew that the person who had been buried in this ancient grave had to be an important figure, so it was highly possible that there were traps or poison at the entrances of the anterooms.
The four men came to another anteroom, but didn’t dare walk in directly. Instead, they
checked the surroundings carefully, and
didn’t walk inside until they were sure that
there was no danger.
Now was the time for Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting to abseil down. Gu Ning took out her night-luminescent pearl, but didn’t reveal it fully, because its light was very
“Here.” Gu Ning gave the night-luminescent pearl to Leng Shaoting. “This is a night-luminescent pearl. You can use it to light the way.”
It was too complicated for her to explain the Yin and her magical power, so she could
only use the excuse.
“A night-luminescent pearl?” Leng Shaoting was quite surprised that Gu Ning had such a priceless jewel, but he didn’t ask further, and took the night-luminescent pearl.
Gu Ning also told Leng Shaoting not to show its light fully in case the four men would find out. After that, they put on gloves and abseiled down. Once they were in the tomb tunnel, they walked to the first anteroom. Before long, they came to the first anteroom which had already been robbed clean.
It was a mess in there and there were pieces of blackened bone with some armor in each of the coffins. They could be servants that
had been buried together with their master.
Right when Gu Ning was about to use her Jade Eyes to check the four men’s location, they suddenly heard an agonized scream followed by messy footsteps.
Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting sensed that something must be wrong, and walked out of the anteroom without hesitation, but they encountered the four men right as they left the anteroom. The man who was running in the front saw two shadows in the tomb tunnel and was frightened to a stop right away, the other three men who were running behind him didn’t expect that he would stop all of a sudden and knocked him over directly. However, they were in a dangerous situation and immediately struggled to get back on their feet. All of them were scared to death when Gu Ning and Leng Shaoting appeared in their sight.
