“I understand,” agreed Augustus instantly.
Jagoan glanced at Jagoan and asked, “Mr. Jagoan, shall we go in and take a look?”
Jagoan took a look at the dark entrance before he sighed. “We shall. Let’s leave our lives to fate.”
“Don’t worry. The moment things go awry, we will evacuate. This time around, we are just scouting. That’s all.”
Jagoan then smiled casually before going in ahead of everyone else.
The instant he stepped in, he adjusted his aura to the maximum. Jagoan dared not take things lightly there. Afterward, he wanted to use his spiritual sense to scout around. However, he realized he could not utilize his spiritual sense at all.
Both Jagoan and Jagoan were on the alert as they took careful steps forward.
“Mr. Jagoan, do you think there is anyone who is still alive in this ancient ruin?” All of a sudden, Jagoan blurted out such a query.
“It’s possible…” Jagoan nodded.
Hearing his response, Jagoan was stunned.
He looked at Jagoan in disbelief. “Mr. Jagoan, this sect was around several thousand years ago. How can anyone live that long?”
“Charm spells are ever-changing and full of secrets. They work the same as pills. Once you eat a pill, you will never grow old and die.”
“What makes you think there isn’t a charm that can do the same?” replied Jagoan with a small smile.
Jagoan was curious and asked, “What do those charms look like? Do they resemble the ones you draw? Does one require a yellow paper?”
“Please stop comparing me with everything. Compared to a charm master, what I do is nothing. A real charm can appear in any manner. It can also be an object.”
“In fact, it can be written in the air. A charm can also be planted in a person’s mind. All of the above are charm spells. How should I answer your question when you ask what the charm spells look like?” Jagoan responded.
Jagoan was rendered speechless. His understanding of charm was limited only to the basics. That was why he asked such a sub-standard question.
The two men continued to forge ahead. After a few careful steps, the entire ancient ruin started to shake all of a sudden.
“Holy crap! Is it going to collapse?” A curse escaped the mouth of Jagoan.
Just then, a wave of heat rushed at them. The very next moment, there was a raging fire.
With the light from the fire, it was only then the men noticed the few corpses lying on the ground. They belonged to the Black Copper Robe warriors and members of the Gutwrencher Sect!
“Retreat!” Jagoan held on to Jagoan, and the two of them retreated swiftly.
However, in the midst of their evacuation, the walls on either side started to catch on fire too. The entire entrance had turned into a raging inferno!
Jagoan’s expression changed drastically. Even their only way out was blazing with flames.
The fire had them completely surrounded!
“Sh*t! I can’t believe that this Fire Charm can be so powerful. Looks like the people who cast this charm are charm masters,” uttered Jagoan with a grim expression.
“What should we do now?” asked Jagoan.
In a place like that, he had no other option but to ask Jagoan for a solution.
“Let me try to use the Fire-Evading Charm and see if we can get out.”
With that, Jagoan took out a calligraphy brush, bit his fingertip, and wet the brush with his blood. Next, Jagoan started waving his calligraphy brush in the air.
Very soon, a charm appeared in the air. Its red shimmer enveloped both Jagoan and Jagoan.
“Let’s go.” Jagoan then pulled Jagoan and rushed forward.
Jagoan looked at Jagoan in astonishment. “I didn’t realize that you don’t require a piece of paper to write charms.”
