There were some white sacks hanging on the surrounding walls. In those sacks were carcasses and corpses. Merely, those carcasses and corpses had yet to have their blood absorbed and dried up. They seemed to be food that the Icethread Spiders had prepared.
“That unlucky fellow seems to have some items on him too.”
With a glance from Wei Suo, he saw that a corpse in one of the sacks seemed to be a cultivator. There seemed to be a faint light on that corpse’s chest. Merely, Wei Suo was unable to determine whether that was a technique talisman or something else.
“Icemist Fruit!” Ye Guwei, whose face was still red, saw with a single glance and called out in a soft voice unintentionally.
Following her gaze, Wei Suo saw a short and small plant from the crack within the wall of stones. The plant’s leaves were dark green in color. It appeared like bracken leaves. On the stem were four white colored little tangerine-like fruits. These four fruits were emitting an ice-cold mist. They appeared like four ice pearls.
“They’re indeed Icemist Fruits. It would seem that inside these walls, is a large Cold Jade.”
Wei Suo’s eyes immediately shined. Icemist Fruit was a kind of unusual fruit that contained Ice-cold Spiritual Energy. It was an essential material in refining the Demon Pellet of fire attribute demonic beasts into Pellet Medicines. A single Icemist Fruit cost more than twenty Low Quality Spiritual Stones. As for ice attribute demonic beasts, if they were level three or above, they would also be able to eat these Icemist Fruits to strengthen their Demon Pellets.
The Demon Pellets were equivalent to the Divine Sea for demonic beasts to store their True Elemental Energy. The bigger a Demon Pellet was, the more powerful the demonic beast would be. As for the Icemist Fruits, they were only able to grow in the vicinity of Cold Jades. For there to be such an Icemist Fruit Tree growing at this place, it meant that there was definitely a large Cold Jade inside the walls of this cave. As for the mid quality and better quality Cold Jades, they were able to be used as materials for technique talismans or magical treasures. Their value was also considerably high.
“No wonder there were three Icethread Spiders appearing in this place.” Lin Daoyi said in a low voice. At the same time, he took out a technique talisman. Lin Daoyi’s movement was extremely cautious. Wei Suo immediately grew joyous once he saw the technique talisman that Lin Daoyi held in his hand. The technique talisman that Lin Daoyi held in his hand radiated a vermillion light. Surprisingly, it was a Fireball Talisman that Wei Suo had made.
‘It would seem that my Fireball Talismans are very popular with the cultivators of Spirit Peak City.’
“Be careful!” While Wei Suo was secretly feeling pleased with himself, Nangong Yuqing who was still blushing, suddenly shouted in a low voice. Tiny blue colored ice crystals the size of palms rapidly solidified before her eyes. It rapidly turned into a fine ice-engraved semitransparent ice shield.
“Bang!” At the very instant when this ice shield was formed, a rod-like black silhouette ruthlessly collided onto the ice shield.
Wei Suo’s first reaction was thinking that the Icethread Spiders have appeared. However, borrowing the light from Lin Daoyi’s candle, Wei Suo discovered that it was a python the size of an adult’s arm that crashed onto the ice shield. Its length was around ten feet. The color of its body was similar to the color of the surrounding rocks.
“Gray Rock Serpent!”
Right when Wei Suo was slightly in a daze, Lin Daoyi shouted out in surprised.
“Are you for real? The Icethread Spiders have level two demonic beast underlings?”
The Gray Rock Serpents were mid-level level two demonic beasts. Its scales were capable of changing their color according to the surrounding rocks and were extremely durable. Generally, it was very hard for a level two or below Divine Sea Stage cultivator to damage it with their attacks. Furthermore, Gray Rock Serpents were capable of jumping several tens of feets using their back belly.
“Holy crap, it’s not only a single one?” Right when Wei Suo was rapidly thinking about the information related to this sort of demonic beast, a ‘sii’ sound was heard from the a surrounding crack within the wall. Another Gray Rock Serpent of the same size as the one earlier, scuttled out.
“Another one? Wahahaha!”
Had it been the Wei Suo from before that saw another Gray Rock Serpent coming out, he would definitely be sweating cold bullets. However, the current Wei Suo had a pile of Fireball Talismans on him. Furthermore, this Nangong Yuqing appeared to be pretty powerful. To the current Wei Suo, these two Gray Rock Serpents were equivalent to Spiritual Stones that could move around. He even wished for there to be more Gray Rock Serpents.
“The ice cold energy of her ice shield is actually this powerful?” Because he was not panicky, Wei Suo was able to pay careful attention to the surrounding. After the Gray Rock Serpent that collided with the ice shield was knocked back, its movements was evidently delayed. A layer of white frost even appeared on the serpent’s head.
A thunderous noise sounded from behind. Wei Suo rapidly turned his head around. He saw that Ye Xiaozheng had taken out the weapon that he carried on his back. It was a thick, big and frightening looking black heavy sword. It was as huge as a door. Once Wei Suo saw that Ye Xiaozheng was wielding this heavy sword and seemed to want to rush forward, he knew right away that Ye Xiaozheng was truly simple and honest. Had it been someone who was a bit more cunning, they would definitely not charge to the front.
“Ye Xiaozheng, don’t come up here for now. This place is rather narrow. The Gray Rock Serpents happened to only be able to attack us from the front. It is sufficient for the two of us to handle these two Gray Rock Serpents.”
Lin Daoyi immediately voiced and stopped Ye Xiaozheng who was planning to rush forward.
“Bang!” Right at this second, the second Gray Rock Serpent also smashed onto the ice shield before Nangong Yuqing. From where Wei Suo was standing, he was able to clearly see that this serpent had penetrated the ice shield with its two sharp teeth. Right away, several long cracks appeared on the ice shield. However, the second Gray Rock Serpent had also been frozen by the ice cold energy on the ice shield and became sluggish. The upper half of its body became covered with a layer of white frost. Right at the very same moment, a Blazing Fire Blade rapidly formed in Nangong Yuqing’s hand. With a ‘woosh’ sound, the Blazing Fire Blade hacked onto this Gray Rock Serpent. The Blazing Fire Blade was unable to directly slash apart the scales covering the Gray Rock Serpent’s head. However, the explosion that resulted after the Blazing Fire Blade landed was too fast for the Gray Rock Serpent to react. The Gray Rock Serpent was unable to close its mouth in time and the fire explosion ended up in its body through its throat.
“My, the Ice Fire Ninth Heaven is truly too ruthless.”
Wei Suo shook his head compassionately. This Gray Rock Serpent that had still not recovered from being frozen had fire poured down its throat. It caused its eyes to immediately protrude outward. It had an expression of wanting to grab its throat. However, it does not have any claw to do so. Thus, it was displayed a deranged appearance.
“Wei Suo, can you stand back a bit…”
Nangong Yuqing who had cast this Blazing Fire Blade slightly turned her head back. With her ears still red, she said to Wei Suo in a low voice.
That was because Wei Suo was standing behind her. Although the Gray Rock Serpents were unable to shatter her ice shield, the might of level two demonic beasts was also astonishing. When they collided onto her ice shield, it also jolted her backwards. The result was that every time the Gray Rock Serpent collided onto her ice shield, she ended up coming and touching Wei Suo.
Wei Suo was immensely enjoying the feeling of being touched. However, after hearing Nangong Yuqing’s voice, he feigned a righteous and understanding expression, nodded and moved slightly back.
“Boom!” Right at the moment when Wei Suo’s Cyan Water Blade slashed onto the Gray Rock Serpent’s body, Lin Daoyi also immediately cast the Fireball Talisman that he had on his hand. A dazzling fireball smashed onto the other Gray Rock Serpent.
“Like this, even its mother would not recognize it now.”
The Gray Rock Serpent that was smashed with a fireball was in a miserable state. Its entire head had turned into a charred black rod. It definitely appeared to be dead.
This Fireball Talisman was made by Wei Suo. Seeing that the Fireball Talisman was this powerful, Wei Suo felt extremely complacent. However, when he saw the scene of the other Gray Rock Serpent, Wei Suo began to have a whole new level of respect for the beauty of the Iron Policy before him. That was because the Gray Rock Serpent that was hit by her Blazing Flame Blade had already fallen to the ground. It seemed that it was only capable of breathing but not moving.
From this, it would appear that Nangong Yuqing’s Blazing Fire Blade was as powerful as Wei Suo’s Fireball Talisman. As for a level one Fireball Talisman, it was, at the very least, as powerful as a level five Divine Sea Stage cultivator’s technique. In that case, this long legged beauty’s martial prowess ought to be level five Divine Sea Stage.
‘It seems that I have to speed up. My cultivation level is inferior to even this beauty. I am truly losing face here.’ Wei Suo shook his head. He then seized the opportunity to take a couple glances at the thin waist, long legs and the extremely perky butt that came into contact with him earlier. ‘If it was that silver robed beauty instead, then it might have been even more joyous earlier.’ Wei Suo began to compare in his heart. He felt that in terms of legs, Nangong Yuqing’s was more provocative. After all, Nangong Yuqing’s legs were straight and slender. However, that silver robed beauty’s little butt seemed to be even more round and perky.
