Can be Saved
Wang Zhong Shan held back and swallowed his anger, allowing the two groups to not erupt into a fight, and they once again started to move off, towards the direction of Long Ao Nation.
“Hahahaha, Sister Xiao Luan is so powerful, a group of people in the Spirit Soul Realm actually do not even dare to fart in front of you, haha!”
“Spirit Soul realm? They only trained to that realm, in terms of power, they are all trash!”
“I have long looked down on that Wang Zhong Shan, acting like a good man every day, but in truth he is a spineless coward!”
A group of guys huddled around the girl and started to talk softly, although they had suppressed their voices, but one or two sentences still came out loudly, which resulted in laughters.
Wang Zhong Shan’s men turned as red as pig liver.
Bei Xuan Ming only laughed, and did not care about the situation, as though he was watching a show.
“Keh, that group of people will die really soon, I will not be angry with them.”
The girl called Xiao Luan snorted, and giggled.
“Our target this time is to join the selection competition of Mountain River Sect List, so everyone should not be angry, and conserve your power, and put on a good show when the time comes.”
Seeing that his group of people were enraged, Wang Zhong Shan immediately said.
“Hey, Big Brother Wang, everyone are bullying you, why are you still tolerating it? Is your temper that good?”
Hong Yan immediately asked, she was very annoyed.
“Hong Yan, there are times where anger is just a punishment for yourself, why should we be like that with them, it is just a group of small people, just treat it as amusement!” Wang Zhong Shan said.
With Wang Zhong Shan’s words, Hong Yan opened her mouth, but did not know what to say.
The two groups continued to move forward.
But, not long after, suddenly, a pungent smell of blood filled their noses.
“There’s a situation!”
Wang Zhong Shan bellowed softly.
The two groups immediately stopped walking.
“Let’s go take a look!”
Wang Zhong Shan immediately spoke to Luo Xiao Miao.
Luo Xiao Miao nodded, and rode his purple horned beast out of the group.
Bei Xuan Ming glanced at Wang Zhong Shan, then also shouted: “Zhou kai, go and take a look.”
“Yes, Young Master!”
A bald headed young teen with a long spear on his back rushed out of the group and went forward.
In the next moment, the two person rushed back with quick speed.
“Big Brother Wang (Young Master Bei Xuan), not good! There are many bodies ahead!”
The two of them shouted at the same time.
Both groups were stunned.
Su Yun raised his head, looked ahead of him and slightly frowned. His eyes suddenly concentrated ahead, with the heavenly Scale Divine Eye, he looked further up, under the mask his eyes glistened with a gold light, the power of his eyes increased, and in an instant the scene in the distance became clear.
Ahead of the group by about 3 to 4 km, a large number of bodies were scattered everywhere, all of their clothes were torn and tattered, wounds all over their bodies and blood flowing everywhere, even attracting a few fierce beasts that were eating the bodies nearby. It looked like they still had their weapons with them. They were most likely groups of participants that were preparing to join the Mountain River List competition.
“They are contestants that were going to join the competition, so their strength would not be so low, how could they die so miserably en route?”
Spirit Soul Realm cultivators were considered powerful people in the region, but in a continent, it would be an average strength, and the group of people whose talents, under the large number of treasures and ingredients support, had effortlessly entered the initial stages of the Spirit Soul Realm. Although they are unable to compare to the higher ups of the sects, their strengths were not too bad.
“It was all good, why would there be bodies suddenly be appearing? I am afraid it is very fishy!!”
Wang Zhong Shan said softly.
“Zhou Kai!” Just then, Bei Xuan Ming shouted.
“Let me ask you, what kind of wounds are on these people? Did they die by injuries inflicted by swords and blades?”
“About this, Young Master, I don’t think they are wounds from swords and blades, many of the corpses are broken into pieces, and more likely they are injuries inflicted by tears from sharp claws or talons.”
“Haha, that’s right.”
Bei Xuan Ming slapped his thighs and laughed: “I remember that this place is called ‘the road of Demon Apes’, and on this stretch, there is a group of demon apes that have cultivation that are no less than the tenth stage of the Spirit Core Realm thriving here. Especially the Demon Ape King, which most probably is a first or second stage Spirit Soul Realm, this group might have unluckily met them, to end up in such a state.”
“Is that so?”
Wang Zhong Shan asked in doubt.
“Why?” Bei Xuan Ming raised one of his eyebrow, and laughed: “Could it be that brother Wang is scared? But this is a road that we have to take, if we do not take this route, we would need to make a huge detour, and will take far longer than three to five months to get out of Long Ao Nation. If you are afraid, then take the detour, three to five months later, after we would have seized the Mountain River List, then we will set up a feast and be hospitable for you all, and hold a welcoming reception to wash off your dirt!”
Bei Xuan Ming’s group immediately erupted into laughter.
Wang Zhong Shan was quiet again.
But the members behind him already saw that his hands were gripping onto the leash of his purple horned beast extremely tightly, it was obvious his patience threshold was reaching its limit.
“This scene is not possible for a group of Demon Apes. If it were truly Demon Apes, you guys will not see the bodies at all!!”
Just at that moment, a low voice sounded out from behind Wang Zhong Shan’s group.
Bei Xuan Ming and his men immediately stopped laughing and turned to look at where the voice came from.
They saw a man in a pale white mask looking over. He was the one who spoke.
He was dressed in black blademaster clothes, his hair was long and black, with the mask covering his face, his looks were hidden, but his entire being gave off an extremely calm feeling, even his mask did. Many spirit cultivators tend to dress up as more monstrous and multicolored, rarely did people wear masks.
“Oh? Why won’t we see the bodies?” Bei Xuan Ming eyed at Su Yun.
“Demon Apes only have one purpose in killing spirit cultivators, and that is to absorb the Profound Qi in the cultivator’s body, and use it to nourish the power in their body, increase their cultivation. So if it truly was Demon Apes, they would bring all the bodies back to their nests, and you will only see the place full of blood, but not half a body!”
“Seems like you know a lot, kid, what cultivation are you at!!”
A strong and sturdy man from Bei Xuan Ming side snorted.
“Our Brother Wu Yun is a third stage Spirit Soul Cultivator, watch what you say!” Hong Yan retorted.
“Hahaha, just a third stage Spirit Soul cultivator, what is that!! Our Zhou Kai is also a third stage Spirit Soul cultivator!! And our Young Master Gu Xin Fei is a fourth stage Spirit Soul cultivator, you are just a third stage cultivator, and you dare to act here? Don’t overestimate yourself!!”
The man said scornfully.
He was called Shen Yu Jing, third stage Spirit Soul realm, his body was full of treasures, his strength was profound.
Hearing that, Hong Yan became angry, but did not know how to refute, so her face became red.
“So you think they are killed by beasts? I think, these wounds represent nothing, spirit cultivators can also create these wounds.” Su Yun glanced at Hong Yan and spoke.
“Heh, no need to argue!”
Bei Xuan Ming shook his head and chuckled: “Exactly how they died, and whatever that has happened here, we will know after looking around.”
Finished, he waved his hand and brought his group to advance.
Wang Zhong Shan and the rest were still feeling uneasy, but the matter was still unknown, their suspicions were unnecessary, and the route ahead was a route they had to go through.
The group of people walked towards the place filled with bodies.
After a while, they reached a narrow road with its entrance covered all over with bodies, and all the bodies had wounds that accurately matched the bites and tears of wild beasts.
Everyone dispersed the low level wild beasts that were eating the bodies, and started to investigate.
“There are no wounds from any spirit cultivators.”
“The wounds seem to be created by wild beasts.”
“The time of death should be no more than three days!”
A few experienced bodyguards inspected.
Zhou Kai from ahead shouted out.
“I have found traces of large movements from a huge number of wild fierce beasts nearby!”
Zhou Kai said.
Bei Xuan Ming’s face exposed a happy look, and said: “There shouldn’t be any mistake, these people were brutally attacked by wild beasts and ended up like that, everyone please do not linger, we must move on quickly!”
This time, Wang ZHong Shan had nothing to say.
Regardless of how they died, it was right for them to leave straightaway.
At that moment, someone suddenly shouted out.
“Everyone quickly come!!”
His voice sounded out, causing everyone to turn to look, only to see someone from Wang Zhong Shan’s group hugging onto a pale white scrawny looking boy, running over.
“He is still breathing!!”
Someone shouted anxiously.
Wang Zhong Shan was shaken, and immediately shouted to the bodyguard near him: “Quick, prepare some pills, spirit doctor, whoever is a spirit doctor and knows medicinal skills, treat him quickly!!”
With that, everyone started running over, trying to treat the boy.
Su Yun was surprised, how could he have survived?
He dropped dismounted from his purple horned beast and walked over towards the boy.
On the topic of medicinal knowledge, his experience could not be worse off than anyone there.
Su Yun went closer, only to see many people surrounding the little boy. The boy’s skin on his entire body was pale white, he had many injuries, countless of them were already beginning to coagulate, it was miserable, his eyes were closed tight, his breath was weak, as if he was about to pass on.
“This little boy barely has any cultivation, god, how did he hold on until now!”
“His life is very unstable, quickly, whoever is of the Spirit Life Qi quickly give him some and stabilise his condition! We cannot waste time!”
“Me, I am!!”
The people started to become chaotic, all of a sudden, they wanted to treat him.
Very quickly, the Spirit Life Qi was given to the little boy, restoring the color on his face.
Just that, it was not the end of the problems.
“We only brought healing pills, but did not have a spirit doctor with us, it is my miscalculation!”
Seeing that the boy was in deep pain, Wang Zhong Shan sighed.
“Can you let me take a look?”
Su Yun looked around and walked over to ask.
“Huh? Brother Wu Yun knows the dao of spirit medicine?”
“Just a little bit.”
“That’s good, come come come, brother Wu Yun, please try your best!” Wang Zhong Shan immediately replied.
Su Yun nodded and walked over.
The people around made way.
Su Yun lifted the little boy’s cold hands, held onto his pulse, and injected a bit of Profound Spirit Qi to peer in.
After a while, he opened his eyes, a puzzled look appeared in the depths of his pupils.
“How is it? Brother Wu Yun?” Wang Zhong Shan asked nervously.
Su Yun did not say anything, his eyes still shut as he inspected the little boy’s injuries.
Suddenly, he relaxed his hand, stood up, and a strange luster flashed past his eyes.
“How is it brother Wu Yun? Can he be saved?” Wang ZHong Shan immediately asked. Everyone’s eyes was fixated on Su Yun.
Su Yun nodded his head and said: “He can be saved!”
With that, Su Yun brought his hand to his back and touched his sword sheath.
A cold light swept across, a long sword was actually pulled out, straightforwardly aiming at the small boy who was lying on the big boulder, fainted.
The sword exploded with a fierce Pure Divine Spirit Qi, slicing straight for the big boulder.
Everyone was shocked.
