Chapter 135: Old freak Mo, Granny Jin
The hair on Wei Suo’s skin immediately jolted up in reflex, as he simultaneously summoned out his spirit-class Scarlet Shell Shield.
Without a sound or aura, a white robed elderly was standing at a distance 7 metres from him.
That white robed elderly had been consistently approaching into Wei Suo’s 7 metre radius, yet Wei Suo and the green-gowned Old Man had failed to notice him.
This elderly had a sinister appearance, born with an aquiline nose and a skinny face. A layer of dark aura was faintly hovering along his face, and his eyes resembled two black wisps flickering. What caused Wei Suo to be appalled was that this demon-like sinister elderly actually had a white robe that was completely woven with strips of white bone; deadly white aura lingered along it, undulating with a peculiar maliciousness.
To Wei Suo’s horror, when he swept through with his ‘Aura Determining Technique’, the white aura merely swirled on that sinister old man. Wei Suo was completely incapable of seeing through him. Which meant, the elderly was at least an expert above the realms of Heavenly Circuit Stage level 4……
The green-gowned Old Man was probably stunned as well, not daring to make a sound. Facing such an expert, Wei Suo didn’t dare to make even the slightest of movements.
The sinister, white robed elderly gazed at Wei Suo emotionless, before he issued chillingly, “Little lad, I can’t believe that with only a Heavenly Circuit Stage level 1 cultivation, you still possess some tricks up your sleeves. It appears that those Amethyst-Fox rose within the valley, is currently in your hands?”
“What Amethyst-Fox rose?” Crying bitterly in his heart, Wei Suo stealthily placed his invisible bone spur into his hand. Listening to the words of that sinister elderly, he knew that not only was he aware of the Amethyst-Fox rose within, he had been waiting patiently outside for a very long time.
“Why, you still harbour hopes of survival?” The sinister white robed elderly batted a cunning glare at Wei Suo. His chilling glare pierced painfully into Wei Suo’s eyes, causing Wei Suo to subconsciously stagger a step back……
Concurrently, on the sinister elderly’s body, 10 loops of white divine sea glows emerged, releasing a domineering pressure that bore down on Wei Suo, causing him to breathe with great difficulty.
Heavenly Circuit Stage level 5 cultivator!
A Heavenly Circuit Stage level 5 cultivator that was missing that final step of breaking through into the Thought Division Stage!
Wei Suo’s face was immediately drained of blood.
“From henceforth, as long as you dare to continue arguing back, you shall die by my hands.” The sinister white robed elderly stared murderously at Wei Suo. “Moreover, I may even use every single portion of your body to forge some artifacts!”
“Why am I so unlucky!?!” Presently, Wei Suo was even contemplating activating his Cyan Emperor Gourd, retreating back into the valley.
The martial threat of a Heavenly Circuit Stage level 5 cultivator was already able to exceed the offensive might of a spirit class artifact. Furthermore, that sinister elderly freak was clearly not a newly ascended Heavenly Circuit Stage level 5 cultivator. Even if Wei Suo attempted to risk his life, the chances of success would be barely 20%; he would simply be slayed and diced into pieces……
“I’ll count to 3. Throw out that Gourd that you just employed to let me examine, if not, I’ll immediately kill you.” However, that sinister old man instantly threw out such a sentence.
“1……..” when the emotionless old freak had just starting counting, the utterly helpless Wei Suo threw his Cyan Emperor Gourd toward him.
Wei Suo had heard rumours of certain outrageous cultivators; understanding that certain absurd cultivators would clearly mention ‘counting to 10’ to their victims, and following that after counting 1……then would skip 3-5, and immediately jump to 10. In the end, their low level victims would be slayed instantly without even a second to react. Wei Suo had even heard of several perverse cultivators that would pose riddles to their victims – ‘I have a pighead on my left, and another on my right, how many do I have in total?’ Yet if one replied ‘two’, that absurd cultivator would suggest that the victim knew too much, and then proceed to slay his low level victim. If one were to reply, ‘3 heads’ or ‘1 head’, then he would reply that his victims were dumber than pigs, and the world had no reason for them to stay any longer. They were a complete waste of spiritual stones……then, he would proceed to slay his low level victim.
Wei Suo didn’t wish for this old freak to surprise him by directly counting 3, before proceeding to slay him immediately.
“A Cyan Emperor Gourd. No wonder, those Immortal Exterminating Vines were helpless towards you.” With one glance at the Cyan Emperor Gourd, that sinister old freak could deduce out the history origins of the Cyan Emperor Gourd. Then he tossed it back to Wei Suo.
Initially intending to seize the opportunity when the old freak was inspecting the Cyan Emperor gourd to deal a sneak attack, Wei Suo became stunned. He had no clue what the old freak had just implied…….
Then, the sinister bone-robed old freak callously announced, “I’ll make a trade with you. As long as you obediently listen to my commands, and assist me with a matter; not only will I spare your life, I can allow you to bring away those Amethyst-Fox rose you had just harvested. You would be free to leave Sky Valley without harm.”
“What do you mean?” Wei Suo surveyed the sinister old freak without moving. For such an elderly, don’t mention his high cultivation; he probably wouldn’t deceive or resort to sly sneak attacks. As for wanting to genuinely make a deal, Wei Suo was sure it wouldn’t be about something good.
“You don’t have to care about what I mean.” The sinister old freak responded with a cold sneer, as he squinted his eyes at Wei Suo. “You just need to nod your head or shake your head. If you shake, you die. If you nod, perhaps you would have a way out. Same terms, I’ll count to 3.”
Utterly helpless, Wei Suo nodded. With his current circumstance, the sinister old freak was seemingly unwilling to kill him, but merely wanted to use him for something. He could only take one step at a time now…..
“Hmph.” Observing Wei Suo nodding, the old freak’s sleeves trembled, as the white aura of his bone-robe flushed out. Suddenly, a terribly miserable and ghastly screech pierced into Wei Suo’s mind.
This bone artifact robe, actually possessed demonic sounds that could assault one’s divine sense!
As Wei Suo’s mind became muddled, his limbs had already been constricted by a loop of bones, completely incapable of resistance.
Immediately following, the sinister old freak reached Wei Suo’s front with a single step. Then, strange green rays shot out from his hand, and stabbed into Wei Suo’s brows.
“Relax, this wouldn’t kill your tiny life.” Witnessing Wei Suo’s utterly frightened countenance, the sinister old freak couldn’t resist the urge to scoff. “This is merely to guard against any methods you have, and also for what I want you to accomplish; instilling a restrictive control over you……”
Right now, Wei Suo didn’t even possess the emotion to curse out ‘your sister’.
Although he hadn’t expected this old freak to suddenly make his move, that demonic sound magic robe was indeed extremely mysterious. Also, the skill/artifact casting speed of Heavenly Circuit Stage level 5 cultivators indeed vastly outstripped a Heavenly Circuit Stage level 1; a clear disparity between their strengths.
Furthermore, he could distinctly sense a queer sensation within his body. Yet even after circulating his true elemental energy around, he could not identify the area where the sinister old freak had placed a restrictive control.
Following the icy cold words issued by the sinister old freak, Wei Suo could measly tail his back with an exceedingly ugly expression.
What caused Wei Suo to be more downcasted, was that this sinister old man had actually decided to surge towards a gigantic mountain at the south; advancing deeper into Sky Valley…..
Along the way, Wei Suo and that sinister old freak had encountered a level 5 upper-tier Golden Winged Tiger. Yet with merely an introduction, that Golden Winged Tiger was impaled by a bone longspear released by the sinister old freak. Following that, the old freak used a blood red pearl to smash the Golden Winged Tiger’s head, beating open a blood hole on its head. At the instance it was killed, every single drop of blood of the Golden Winged Tiger was instantly absorbed by that blood red pearl.
After half an incense worth of time, the sinister old freak had proceeded to obliterate another level 5 mid-tier 7-colours Toxic Scorpion. As for that oddly blood red pearl he summoned out, its lustre had seemingly transformed slightly brighter.
Half an hour later, the sinister old freak and Wei Suo no longer encountered any more powerful demonic beasts; and entered that gigantic mountain, within the middle region of Sky Valley.
The sinister old man continued forward without a word. After a brief while, a mountain valley enshrouded by dense white fog greeted Wei Suo’s eyes……
Nearing the center of this mountain, this particular mountain valley was also host to many eccentric formations of erected stone pillars.
After reaching the middle region of this mountain Valley, Wei Suo was shocked to discover the existence of another cultivator sitting on one of those boulders.
This cultivator was tall and sturdy, and had a cruel appearance. With triangular eyes, the cultivator wore a green and red artifact robe; the red portion embroidered with designs of green chinese rose.
“Old freak Mo, you’ve finally arrived.” Observing Wei Suo and that sinister old freak entering, that triangular-eyed cultivator offered an ominous smile but spoke with a certain unhappiness.
Originally, Wei Suo had utilized his ‘Aura Determining Technique’ and realized this triangular-eyed cultivator was above Heavenly Circuit Stage level 4 as well; so much so that he couldn’t even see the deepest line of that cultivator. Instead, by paying attention to the cultivator’s tone when speaking with the sinister old freak, Wei Suo could tell this fella was the same as the sinister old freak; a cultivator at the Heavenly Circuit Stage level 5……
“What’s the rush, it isn’t the appointed time yet.” The sinister old freak refuted with an expressionless appearance, and selected his own stone boulder to sit down.
Noticing the old freak’s conduct of ignoring him, Wei Suo smiled wryly as he selected a stone pillar beside him to sit. At this moment, that triangular-eyed cultivator probed Wei Suo with great interest. That interested and exhilarated probing caused Wei Suo’s hair to stand on end, as he cursed silently, Looking at your sister?!
The green-gowned Old Man was probably afraid of being detected by those two cultivators, and did not dare to step out of the Ghost Raising jar.
After an excruciating long duration of an incense, the sinister old freak and the triangular-eyed cultivator bowed slightly. Then, a white haired woman clad in golden-jade robes, with golden phoenix hairpins pinned to her hair, emerged from the white fog.
“Granny Jin. You’ve finally arrived.” The triangular-eyed cultivator glanced at the wrinkled face, shriveled mouth old hag, as he addressed with a stale expression.
“Why have both seats arrived so early? With the Sky Valley opening once a decade, why not explore around instead. What a pity. Besides, my longevity is not as exuberant as both seats, naturally I had to cherish such an opportunity.” The old woman was cordial and cheery. Yet when her gaze swept through Wei Suo’s body, Wei Sou couldn’t help feeling that she was an old wretched witch that savoured innocent children.
“Granny Jin, you cultivate with an upper earth ranked cultivation technique. After this visit to Sky Valley, you can breakthrough to the Thought Division stage, it isn’t something we can compare to.” Then, the triangular-eyed cultivator added. “A trifling few longevity doesn’t count as much.”
