The starlight of the Leppler Star System fell directly overhead, roasting the ground.
The air near the ground had already distorted because of the high temperature.
Looking ahead, he could only see hot waves surging, which was terrifying.
Angie Prairie put down her hand that was on her forehead and looked into the distance.
She turned around and asked Chu Nan, “Hey, are you sure youre in the right direction Why cant I see anything ahead”
Chu Nan reached out to wipe his forehead and shook off the sweat on his hand.
He hurriedly picked up the water bottle in his hand and took a big sip.
After drinking it, Chu Nan felt much better.
He took a deep breath and replied, “According to the high priests description, it should be this direction.” After saying that, he pointed at the ground, “Look, the place with the smallest shadow is definitely the equator of Planet Leppler.
Were at the equator now, so it cant be wrong.”
Angie Prairie rolled her eyes at Chu Nan, “Planet Leppler is so big and the equator is at least tens of thousands of kilometers.
Are you sure its nearby”
“Theres also a map.” Chu Nan took out a wrinkled map that should be made of some animal leather.
He glanced at the simple map that was only marked with a few symbols and could not help but smile bitterly, “Although the precision of this map is pitifully low, from these landmarks, its nearby.
Look, this should be the mountain we passed by just now.
Theres an abandoned building complex on it.”
Angie Prairie leaned over and glanced at it.
She thought for a moment and nodded.
“Yes, it should be right from the looks of it.
However…” She raised her hand again and looked around, “I still dont see any Holy Mountain.
Tell me, if there was a mountain, I should have seen it long ago.”
“Perhaps we didnt find the right location, so we can just search more.” Chu Nan shrugged and expressed that it did not matter, “In any case, theres a vehicle and we dont have to walk.”
Angie Prairie turned to look at the large old fuel freight locomotive beside her and could not help but shake her head.
“Why dont you directly borrow a small low-altitude shuttle from Dong Fang Thats much faster.”
“It cant be helped,” Chu Nan said.
“Dong Fang and the others are only here to carry out a mission and dont have many shuttles for me to use.
They have limited resources.
Even this vehicle was snatched from the Sand Eagle previously.
Its already not bad that Dong Fang is willing to transport us here with this vehicle and find enough fuel for me.
I cant ask for too much.”
After saying that, Chu Nan waved at Angie Prairie and gestured for her to get into the vehicle again.
The two of them got on the locomotive and Chu Nan skillfully started it.
The old fuel locomotive quickly moved deeper into the wasteland.
It had already been 13 hours since they left for the nearest city, Panguinea.
According to the local time on Planet Leppler, more than half a day had passed.
After 13 hours of traveling, they had already gone more than 800 kilometers into the wasteland from the original Panguinea on the equator, leaving the city far behind.
Now, their surroundings could be said to be desolate without any signs of human habitation.
The reason why they were here was completely because of the high priests words.
The so-called “guidance” of the high priest allowed Chu Nan to take another step forward.
It was not that she could give Chu Nan any guidance, but that she expressed that there was actually a long-standing Holy Mountain among her Rand Clansmen that contained the most precious things in the history of the Rand Clan.
The complete inheritances of the two cultivation methods were also inside.
If Chu Nan could obtain the inheritance of the Holy Mountain, he would definitely take another step forward in these two cultivation methods.
However, the high priest also said that the Holy Mountain was protected by the Holy Clan.
If he wanted to obtain the inheritance, he had to obtain the approval of the Holy Clan and pass their trial.
At the same time, the high priest expressed that outsiders were usually not allowed to participate in this trial.
However, because Chu Nan had saved her and all her clansmen, she was willing to give him the approval to participate.
As long as Chu Nan brought this approval certificate, the Holy Clan would acknowledge his identity and give him the qualifications to test himself.
After the high priest finished speaking, Chu Nan ran to this desolate place that was at least 3,000 kilometers away from Nightclub City.
As for Angie Prairie, she happened to have returned from the United States of Melaita and when she heard that Chu Nan was going to explore the Holy Mountain, she bluntly expressed that she wanted to follow him.
According to her, she had once stayed on Planet Leppler for a period of time and was much more familiar with this place than Chu Nan.
Chu Nan was deeply suspicious of her words, but since she insisted on following, he could only agree.
“Heh, Chu Nan, do you think the high priest is lying Ive been on Planet Leppler for a long time, so why have I never heard of the Rand Clan having a Holy Mountain” Perhaps it was because she was bored sitting in the car, but Angie Prairie suddenly spoke.
Im the great benefactor who saved her entire tribe.
Why would she lie to me with these words” Chu Nan shook his head, “Speaking of which, why did you suddenly suspect this This doesnt seem like your personality.”
“This has nothing to do with personality, but Ive actually seen quite a few such situations in the past.
In these relatively backward races, there are often all kinds of legends that they believe to be true.
In fact, these things have been twisted after being spread many times, and theyre completely different from the facts.
The Holy Mountain that the high priest mentioned is only a legend.
Didnt she say that she had never seen it before”
“Youve seen a lot of them in the past” Chu Nan was a little strange and understood after thinking for a moment.
Angie Prairie had followed Supremacy Oville around previously.
She had interacted with such things more than him.
“It doesnt matter.
Even if its not true, we can just treat it as a vacation,” Chu Nan said, “What Youre not willing to travel with me”
“Of course not.” Angie Prairie immediately shook her head and said to Chu Nan with a happy expression, “If were traveling together, I like to be with you very much.
Or rather, as long as Im with you, Im very happy.”
Chu Nan nearly collided with the steering wheel.
“You… do you know what youre saying”
“What Thats what I think.
Is there a problem with saying that”
Looking at Angie Prairies matter-of-fact expression, Chu Nan could only be speechless.
This girl had a straightforward personality and said whatever she thought.
There was no doubt about this.
However… did she really know what it meant
This was something that only girls would say to the person they liked!
Speaking of which, Chu Nan suspected that she did not know what it meant to like someone…
When he asked her previously, she had clearly expressed that she knew nothing about this.
“Look, theres someone!” Angie Prairie suddenly pointed ahead and cried out.
Chu Nan hurriedly threw away his thoughts and looked in the direction Angie Prairie pointed.
Indeed, he saw shadows in the distant wasteland like countless figures were swaying.
However, what shocked Chu Nan was the sound of firearms roaring in the air.
