Then, the dragon-shaped jade flashed feebly and returned to Rocky's hand.
After hanging it around his neck again, Rocky spared no time and ran up ladder that led to the Heavenly God Temple.
Suddenly, Rocky felt an aura appear behind him. Just as he was about to turn around to investigate, he noticed that the dead water on both sides began to surge, as if trying to break free from an invisible dam. At the same time, the ladder under his feet began to shake violently, and to his horror, he realized the stairs he'd just passed began to sink into the water.
Seeing that the situation was getting desperate, Rocky didn't care about anything else but ran like a madman towards the Heavenly God Temple as fast as he could. It was a race against time. The stairs behind him kept sinking, like dominoes. However, what Rocky was worried about the most was the dead water surging on both sides, as though they'd swallow him at any moment.
Just as the last step was about to sink, Rocky stepped on it and launched himself into the Heavenly God Temple, tumbling through its gate. The stairs behind him then fell into the dead water.
When Rocky looked back at the Heavenly God Temple before him, he found that it was even more breathtaking up close. It was a hundred meters high, like a palace of a giant, its crystal-like facade twinkling under the light.
