Chapter 142: Not even leaving behind a mouthful of soup?
However, He Cuode only focused on storing his mid-grade spirit class blue pearl, before he glanced towards the Earthflame Immortal Lotus and the slightly submerged Scarletwing Flame Devil before nodding. “If the few seats are unable to be at ease, I would like to invite you to first store those two distinct rewards; before we allocate them later on.”
“Fine, we’ll do it as per brother’s words.” Old Freak Mo, Granny Jin and Old freak Feng exchanged glances, before Old freak Feng soared towards the area above the Earthflame Immortal Lotus. Reaching out his hand, a cyan dagger jolted out. “Dang!” the Earthflame Immortal Lotus was actually as tough as steel, and his cyan dagger barely managed to scrape out sparks against it. Nevertheless shortly after, it was still harvested by that same cyan dagger…….with the Earthflame Immortal Lotus in hand, Old freak Feng reached out his other hand. Akin to pulling out carrots, he easily pulled the semi-submerged carcass of the Scarletwing Flame Devil out.
“Although Tie Lingzi is dead, he is still counted as one of yours. Thus, that Earthflame Immortal Lotus petal that belongs to him will still be yours. As for how you will divide that, I will not step in.” He Cuode watched as Old freak Feng hauled the Earthflame Immortal Lotus, and flung the Scarletwing Flame Devil’s corpse before everyone. He Cuode then smiled amicably. “You can retrieve your 3 Earthflame Immortal Lotus petals, and hand over the remaining Earthflame Immortal Lotus to us.”
After a brief pause, He Cuode’s attention fell onto the skeleton remains at the corner. He then spoke with deep intentions. “As for the Scarletwing Flame Devil and Old Devil Qin’s possessions, we will split them equally amongst us 6. What do you think?”
Old freak Mo and the other two glanced at each other, before unanimously nodding. “Fine, we will divide them according to your words…..”
Old freak Feng didn’t bother chatting further, as he pulled forcefully intending to directly extract a lotus petal from the Earthflame Immortal Lotus. Instead, his brows knitted tightly. This lotus petal was extremely resolute, and couldn’t be severed. A cyan light emitted from Old Freak Feng’s hand, as he circulated his true energy. “Ke!” Finally, a gentle sound resounded, as he carved out a lotus petal that appeared identical to a red jade.
Following that, Old freak Feng then handed over the Earthflame Immortal Lotus with 5 petals to the greedy looking Old freak Mo.
Due to Tie Lingzi’s unfortunate demise, Granny Jin who originally harboured no intentions for the Earthflame Immortal Lotus, was also stirred emotionally. She couldn’t help but utter to Old freak Mo. “Old freak Mo, help keep two petals of the Earthflame Immortal Lotus first. Later on, I will offer satisfactory compensation to you and Old Freak Feng, in exchange for that Earthflame Immortal Lotus petal. How about it?”
“That is naturally fine……” Old freak Mo nodded.
That Earthflame Immortal Lotus petal that initially belonged to Tie Lingzi, should rightfully be distributed amongst him, Granny Jin and Old freak Feng. If Granny Jin could offer out satisfactory compensation, then naturally he could transform his third of ownership of that petal to Granny Jin. Besides, to him, he was immensely confident of cultivating out a Fire Spirit Root from employing a single grade 6 Earthflame Immortal Lotus.
After nodding, Old freak Mo then proceeded to carve out two petals from the Earthflame Immortal Lotus.
Yet without a single warning, Old freak Mo suddenly hurled the entire Earthflame Immortal Lotus into the Earthflame Magma pool.
Simultaneously, white rays flushed out from his bone artifact robe; which echoed out demonic sounds of wailing like ghosts and hows of wolves. He then staked everything as he rushed towards the exit behind, while positioning the white banisters that hadn’t been damaged behind him…….
“Old freak Mo, what are you doing?!” Granny Jin yelled.
Old freak Feng’s expression changed as well, as he surged towards the Earthflame Immortal Lotus that Old freak Mo had tossed aside. When he caught the Earthflame Immortal Lotus, he immediately released a miserable howl.
Because when he seized the Earthflame Immortal Lotus, it was already half submerged inside the magma. Moreover, he hadn’t employed a single true energy where half of his hand was scalded and his skin peeled away.
A blue beam stabbed out from He Cuode’s hand as it penetrated through all the white banisters, and pursued towards the entrance. A shrilling shriek was emitted from Old freak Mo, but his sounds of speedy escaping didn’t halt.
Everything happened in a blinking of an eye.
“Wakao, what is going on?” Even both Wei Suo and the Old Man who were hiding while spectating, and even eyeing the Earthflame Immortal Lotus covetously, were shell shocked. They hadn’t anticipated such a twist of events…….
The exceedingly gloomy He Cuode immediately voiced out, “Old freak Mo will certainly take his revenge. Furthermore, disciples of the White Skull Sect are plenty in this Sky Valley, we absolutely cannot permit him to escape! Dayu Kwangsheng, follow me to chase and slay Old freak Mo. Old freak Feng and Sheng Xuan, I’ll leave Granny JIn to you.” As his words faded,
Granny Jin’s countenance sank drastically. That Heaven’s First Sect disciple had flew towards the entrance of the cave, and sandwiched Granny Jin between him and Old freak Feng.
“Old freak Feng, so it was you who divulged our secret! No wonder he was so familiar with the current situation!” Granny Jin swiftly summoned out a cyan light screen, before she rebuked Old freak Feng again. “What benefits can you get by colluding with them!”
“I won’t mention about others…..” Bearing with his scalding hand, his face appeared sinister as Old freak Feng coldly announced. “Except, I am extremely interested in the demonic dan-pellet of the Scarletwing Flame Devil.”
“Just because you desire to acquire its demonic dan-pellet?” Old Granny’s tone was chilly. “Even if you can kill me, aren’t you afraid they silence you as well?”
“There isn’t a worry, really. Before this, I’ve already asked them to hand over 700,000 low grade spiritual stones, where only I know where it is kept. Only after my safe departure, I will deliver to them the location of those 700,000 low grade spiritual stones.” Old freak Feng sneered. “On account of us collaborating once, if you end yourself, I will definitely arrange a proper burial for you……”
“Wakao!” As Wei Suo witnessed the scene of Old freak Feng talking, he could see strands poking out from the Earthflame Immortal Lotus.
Thousand Year Silk!
Wei Suo finally understood why Old freak Mo had chosen that particular action.
It was obviously impossible for a specialized assassinating venomous tool like the Thousand Year Silk, to be growing within the Earthflame Immortal Lotus of the Earthflame Magma pool.
When the Earthflame Immortal Lotus had fallen into Old freak Feng’s hands briefly, he definitely had secretly placed several strands of the Thousand Year Silk while carving away the petals of the Earthflame Immortal Lotus.
If Old freak Mo followed him and circulated true energy into the Earthflame Immortal Lotus, those strands of Thousand Year Silk will drill into the body of Old freak Mo. After Old freak Mo had been dispatched off, then they would finish off Granny Jin. Naturally, that would be a surefire success……
Conspiring in this manner, Old freak Feng was truly venomous. An ordinary individual when harvesting the Earthflame Immortal Lotus, a heaven grade spirit medicine within his hands, would definitely be dazzled by its brilliance; impatiently desiring to carve out its petals. Moreover, Old freak Feng even demonstrated once through, and had used his true energy to carve out a petal from the Earthflame Immortal Lotus.
Wei Suo wouldn’t probably fall for such a ploy.
Yet never did he expect, that Old freak Mo had a truly doubtful and meticulous personality. Under such circumstances, he actually discovered the Thousand Year Silk, and immediately figured out the entire process of developments; realizing that this was a set up by Old freak Feng and He Cuode.
Yet what Wei Suo admired more was that, Old freak Mo had perceived that trying to flee with the Earthflame Immortal Lotus would be excruciatingly difficult, and didn’t hesitate to hurl it aside. Having forced everyone’s attention to the Earthflame Immortal Lotus, Old freak Feng himself couldn’t help but scramble for the Earthflame Immortal Lotus……
Already prepared to strike, Old freak Mo actually managed to escape from this cave under the encirclement of He Cuode and the others. Except, Wei Suo couldn’t tell if Old freak Mo could truly escape successfully.
“Old freak Feng, that demonic dan-pellet is of paramount importance to me.” Granny Jin’s complexion fluctuated greatly, before she started pleading, “On account on our many years of friendship, I can hand you 200,000 low grade spiritual stones, and we can join forces to slay this Heaven’s First Sect disciple. Now that the Earthflame Immortal Lotus is in your hands, I relinquish all claims over a single lotus. You can exploit their 700,000 low grade spiritual stones as well. Wouldn’t your benefits vastly outstrip a single demonic dan-pellet, wouldn’t it be a more pleasant outcome?”
Hearing Granny Jin’s words, even that Heaven’s First Sect disciple known as Sheng Xuan became nervous. Instead, Old freak Feng scoffed. “Granny Jin, spiritual stones require the living to squander it. I have no confidence at all, to escape from being hunted down by both the Heaven’s First Sect and the Star Convening Sect……”
Granny Jin was about to reply, but her complexion instantly stiffened up; unable to utter a single word. Following that, the figures of He Cuode and Dayu Kwangsheng with ugly expressions, entered through the cave entrance again.
Upon seeing the ashen expressions of the He Cuode and Dayu Kwangsheng, Old freak Feng’s face twitched slightly as he anxiously asked, “How is it, did he escape?”
He Cuode replied with a gloomy tone and an ashen complexion. “I didn’t expect Old freak Mo to have cultivated a Bonepair Substitution, and was tricked by him.”
“We shouldn’t tarry for long.” Old freak Feng’s demeanor had utterly sank gloomily, as he cast a vicious glare at Granny Jin. “Granny Jin, do you wish for me to do it, or will you end it yourself?”
“Forget it, I can only blame myself was trusting you.” Granny Jin offered a lamenting gaze at Old freak Feng, before slapping her forehead. A blood ray gushed out, as a blood hole emerged on her forehead. Her body then slumped to the ground, totally devoid of an aura.
The vicious looking Old freak Feng then searched Granny Jin’s body, and retrieved all her Treasure Receiving Pockets into his hand.
Instantaneously, a cyan flicker radiated out as blood gushed out from Granny Jin’s heart. Old freak Feng wasn’t assured and actually activated a wind blade which severed the heart meridian of Granny Jin.
Looking on hindsight now, the most good-natured and carefree Old freak Feng amidst the four, was actually the most vicious one. Wei Suo witnessed this scene as his hair stood on end, as though a bug had crawled along his skin.
Without pausing, a gust of wind pillar billowed through which dispersed the skeletal remains of that cultivator into ashes. Simultaneously, all the objects including his artifact robe was collected into Old freak Feng’s hand.
After everything inside the cave had been cleansed out, Old freak Feng and the rest turned into a blur, as they soared out of the cave.
“Ah, they didn’t even leave behind a mouthful of soup!”
Although celebrating the fact those fiends had departed, Wei Suo couldn’t help complaining dejectedly in his heart after realizing that everything had been dredged up by those cultivators.
Yet at this instant, sonorous thunder rolls quaked the entire terrain.
The swiftest of the lot, the foremost Old freak Feng was actually treated like a sack as he was sent flying, before crushing to the ground. After two rolls, he was merely 6 metres from rolling into the Earthflame Magma pool.
