Chapter 979 Ancient Sky Battlefield Secret (2)

π‘™π‘–π‘π“‡π˜¦π‘Žπ’Ή.π‘π‘œπ“‚

Thereafter, both of them signed a grade-8 soul contract with the aforementioned conditions. By doing this, Ace had made Sofia drop her guard as even she hadn't imagined Ace could easily bypass the soul contract on his whim.

"Lead the way, Your Highness." Ace humbly requested while performing a noble gesture.

Sofia gave him a curious look, "You can call me Sofia; what is your name, and where did you come from?" 𝑙π˜ͺπ’·π˜³π‘’π˜’π‘‘.π’Έπ‘œπ‘š

Although she was extremely daring and strong, in truth, Sofia had no real-world experience as she had never left the safety of the imperial palace, and from a young age, she had been cultivating in this place.

But she has never liked this confinement atmosphere and always like to adventure whether it was in the imperial palace or the mystery plain, she simply didn't fear anything.

The biggest reason for her fearlessness is her unidentified Fantastic Meridians, which has something to do with space. Her fantastic meridians were awakened when she was three years old, and upon awakening, she was directly able to use small-range teleportation.

This incident naturally alarmed the imperial family, and after long testing and research, they weren't able to identify her fantastic meridians. All they could figure out was her meridians had something to do with space.

Nonetheless, this earned Sofia the full attention of the entire imperial family and resources. As she became strong, her fantastic meridians followed suit, and she awakened another space-type ability at ten and the third at the age of eighteen, and now she was 40.

The terrifying aspect about her abilities was nothing could seem to stop or seal her abilities. Even grade-8 space-sealing formations were useless against her. That's why she could come and go anywhere she wanted without even others realizing it.

But even with her astonishing space abilities, she couldn't enter either the sealed mountain spaces or the core region of the Ancient Sky Battlefield Plain, which was the only drawback she had suffered in her entire life.

That's why when she discovered that someone else was able to enter these confinement spaces where even she couldn't, she couldn't help but become extremely agitated and felt defeated.

She not only wanted to make a deal with Ace, but she wanted to know who he was and the space abilities he possessed. Because even with the Sky Heart Plains' history, they had very little inheritance regarding space law. This legendary element was simply too rare, much less meridians related to space.

But this somewhat na?ve yet ambitious nature was also the cause of her fearlessness of Ace, and he took full advantage of it.

"You can call me Black. As for where I'm from, the entire world is my home as I'm a vagabond who likes to collect shiny things." Ace playfully stated as they both took flight.

Despite the restriction and killing intent, it didn't have much effect on him while Sofia was using some kind of ability emitting almost invisible space fluctuations, which didn't go unnoticed by Ace since he had also comprehended space law in the minor realm.

He was extremely interested in this woman's space-related abilities as it was his first time meeting someone like her, just like Sofia was in him. That's why he decided to talk candidly and a little foolishly to make her drop her guard completely so he could easily dig out information.

Sofia was startled after hearing that unexpected answered, "Are you joking with me?" She coldly asked.

"Can't you tell?" Ace shrugged his shoulders.

A deep frown appeared on Sofia's face, "How did you get here? Did you travel all the way from the entrance?"

"Oh, to tell you the truth, it's all thanks to your brothers that I managed to get a free ticket to the legendary golden lands. Once you see them, give them my gratitude." Ace plainly revealed.

Sofia's eyes narrowed with scrutiny, "Brothers? I don't believe you. They would never try to harm the clan, even if they had a hundred guts. Especially they won't leave the job to a loose mouth fellow like you. You are clearly trying to sow discord among our family."

"Think what you want. I never lie to a princess," Ace stated with a smile.

"Hmph, if you don't want to tell me, you don't need to twist your words. I honestly don't care since that place is nothing but a den of conservative old fools. They had been in power for so long that they had started to scheme against each other to pass the time.

"All they care about is power and more power; they are afraid of unknowns; maybe your presence might open their fastened eyes. But it still depends on if you have the ability to make them sense true danger. If anything, you have my blessing if you want to mess with my clan." Sofia coldly stated as a hint of sadness and hatred was hidden in her voice.

Ace was startled when he heard this rather unexpected request. He could sense Sofia's loneliness and deeply hidden bitterness in those words. Just what had she experienced to have such an opinion and grudge towards her own family?

Still, it has nothing to do with him; on the contrary, this will make it much easier for him to get the information he wants.

"If that's the case, how about you tell me where your clan's treasury is hidden? I might pay a visit to collect some shiny things." Ace couldn't help but probe.

"You want to steal from our treasury?" She couldn't help but look at him with deep disdain, "Even I don't know the location of the treasury. In fact, only the generation of the clan leader, who is also the ruler of the empire, can know the location of the treasury. Or do you think the treasury will be out in the open like the ancient city?"

Ace was startled, "Then how about you tell me something worth visiting at your place, which contains lots of shiny things?"

Sofia suddenly smiled with hidden mockery, "The only place with lots of treasures except for our treasury is the Ancestral Burial Ground. Are you interested in grave robbing?"

Ace was rendered speechless when he heard this unexpected answer, and his lip twitched slightly, "Are you serious?"

"Of course, it's our clan custom to bury the dead with their entire life's wealth so they can use it in the underworld." Sofia solemnly stated.

'There's such a thing?' Ace had a strange expression as it was his first time knowing such a peculiar custom, 'The world is really filled with all sorts of beliefs and wonders. My eyes have really opened today. I guess, in the future, I should not overlook the burial grounds either…' He was seriously considering it.

"Alright, if you help me, I'll be your grave robber for hire. We can divide the loot evenly." Ace nodded in agreement at this moment.

Now it was Sofia's turn to become speechless as she never expected this fellow not to have a sliver of morals. But a rare amusement flashed past her pretty eyes, "It's a deal then. As long as our corporation goes well, I don't mind expanding this partnership."

As they were probing each other, after an unknown time, they finally reached the core of the Ancient Sky Battlefield, which was covered in an enormous crimson dome shimmering with pitch-black runes!
