In addition, that place had no exit. If they continued forward, they would end up back where they had started, walking in circles.
“Are we going to be trapped here?” Kaison asked with a face full of worry. The members of the Demon Seal Alliance and the Nesser family were also starting to grow anxious because they had also discovered there was no leaving that place no matter what they did.
However, since there wasn’t any treasure there, that meant the treasure was located elsewhere. At that moment, everyone heard an unusual noise. Immediately afterward, they saw five dark vortices gradually emerging from the colorful glows in the sky.
The vortices grew larger and ultimately hovered in midair. The five vortices were identical, each as bizarre as the other, and all had faint suction force.
“What are those?” Cloud asked curiously while looking up at the newly formed phenomena. The others also gazed upward, unable to figure out what those five vortices were.
“These should be some sort of portals. We need to go through these vortices to reach another place! Perhaps the treasures are located in that other place,” Kai said.
“In that case, which vortex should we enter?” Cloud asked. After carefully observing the five vortices, Kai shook his head because he could not tell which one was safe.
The other cultivators also understood that only one out of the five vortices might be safe to enter, but nobody knew which one, nor was anyone willing to risk their life to find out. The crowd whispered among themselves while looking at the vortices, yet none made a move.
As time passed, the vortices began to shrink as if they would disappear at any time. Everyone panicked at that sight, fearing they would be stuck in that place for eternity once the vortices vanished.
“D*mn it! Since we don’t know which one is safe, let’s just test them one by one.” Typhon, growing impatient, abruptly grabbed a wandering cultivator.
That wandering cultivator was at Sixth Level Body Fusion Realm, but he was powerless upon getting seized by Typhon.
“Pick a vortex and jump in. Otherwise, I’ll kill you!” Typhon threatened the wandering cultivator.
Feeling Typhon’s threat, the wandering cultivator turned extremely pale. Unfortunately, in a world where the strong prey on the weak, the latter could only be at the mercy of people more powerful than them.
Everyone watched silently, none stepping forward to intervene as that was beneficial for the rest. Moreover, having someone test the water could make the situation safer for everyone else.
Kai observed without saying a word or doing anything to stop Typhon since he wasn’t a savior. Looking at the five vortices, the wandering cultivator gritted his teeth. “I’ll just go for it. Death awaits me either way!”
He fathomed there was still a slim chance to survive if he jumped into the vortex. If he didn’t, he would still be doomed. The wandering cultivator made his move, charging toward one of the vortices. Soon, he disappeared into the vortex.
The onlookers stared intently at the wandering cultivator and noticed as soon as he entered the vortex, the space within the vortex twisted violently, instantly tearing the wandering cultivator apart and turning him to mush.
“This vortex is a no-go!” Typhon made a mental note and reached out to grasp another wandering cultivator. “It’s your turn to pick now!”
Left with no alternatives, the wandering cultivator could only make his choice, but this time, his chance of survival increased significantly as the probability was one out of four.
The second wandering cultivator leaped into a different vortex, but his fate was the same as the previous cultivator. His body was also shredded by the contorting space into a mass of gore.
The other wandering cultivators were terrified and drenched in sweat, afraid they would be Typhon’s next target.
