“It’s because you set up this huge Spiritual Energy Collection Array and gathered all the spiritual energy within the area. Look around you, for goodness’ sake! You’re literally shrouded in a fog of spiritual energy! That alone is enough to draw a lot of attention to your location…”
“Besides, Diego’s brother, Terrell, is the one ruling over this island. Don’t you think he’d come after you for revenge after finding out that you killed his brother?”
It wasn’t until Jagoan heard Jagoan’s questions that he realized his mistake. “Oh, no!”
Jagoan has been watching after me, but what about Colin? I wonder if anything happened to him…
With that in mind, Jagoan rushed over to the next room as quickly as he could, only to see Colin sitting there with his eyes tightly shut.
A faint glow was coming out of Colin’s chest as he continued his cultivation training.
Jagoan breathed a sigh of relief when he saw that Colin was all right. He wouldn’t be able to forgive himself if his carelessness resulted in Colin being harmed.
“This kid is quite talented. Given the ideal environment here, it won’t be long before he reaches Martial Arts Marquis!” Jagoan exclaimed with a smile when he saw the faint glow in Colin’s chest.
“Oh, he’ll never reach Martial Arts Marquis by training here,” Jagoan commented.
Jagoan glanced at him in confusion. “What makes you say that?”
“Haven’t you noticed something very strange about Encanta Island?” Jagoan asked.
Jagoan shook his head. “No… What’s so strange about this island?”
“This place has a ridiculously high concentration of spiritual energy, but there are no powerful cultivators here. Only Diego has reached Nascent Soul, which is equivalent to Martial Arts Marquis in the martial arts world. Everyone else here has only reached the Golden Core stage at best. Even Terrell has only reached the Top Level of the Golden Core stage… None of the people here are able to go beyond Nascent Soul, regardless of how hard they train. I’ve been staying here for a few months now, and I haven’t gotten any stronger at all,” Jagoan explained.
“Why is that?” Jagoan’s eyes went wide with surprise.
He’s right… The people on this island are indeed rather weak despite the environment being great for cultivation training.
This doesn’t make any sense!
Jagoan shook his head. “I’m not sure, but I think this island may have been cursed. Almost every spiritual energy cultivator in existence has gone into hiding, be it in secluded mountains or in bustling cities. You won’t find any other place with a huge number of spiritual energy cultivators gathered together like this. This place is an exception, though…”
“I believe this island has been cursed because the cultivation levels of the people here are either stagnant or increasing at a very slow rate. This is probably why these spiritual energy cultivators are able to live normal lives here without hiding.”
Jagoan was shocked when he heard that.
What the… A curse that is able to affect tens of thousands of people on an island? That’s ridiculous!
“Wait a minute, how come I’m not affected? I’ve been able to increase my cultivation level in just ten days!” Jagoan asked as he didn’t notice anything strange throughout his cultivation training.
If anything, he was surprised by how fast he was making progress.
“I’m not sure about that either. Maybe you’re just built different.”
Jagoan knew about Jagoan being the son of a dragon, but he wasn’t about to bring that up.
“Okay, there’s definitely something off about Encanta Island. There must be some kind of secret behind this strange phenomenon!” Jagoan exclaimed with a frown.
Jagoan rolled his eyes at Jagoan in response. “You don’t say? I wouldn’t be here if it didn’t contain some kind of secret!”
“The problem is, I haven’t found any ancient ruins or ancient tombs even though I’ve been searching this island for a few months now.”
“Now, now… We’ll search for it together, okay?” Jagoan said as he decided to join Jagoan in uncovering the secrets of Encanta Island.
I don’t care if it’s a curse or some kind of arcane array. If it’s able to affect tens of thousands of people, then the person who cast it must be incredibly powerful!
