“Wei Suo, how come you’re here?” Nangong Yuqing looked to Wei Suo with a stunned expression. This guy had truly amazed and surprised her too much. At the moment when she felt that she would definitely be killed, she had also thought that Wei Suo might suddenly appear in her mind. However, she felt that even if Wei Suo truly managed to arrive on time, with his martial prowess, he would likely be no match for these people before them. Thus, she determined that it was best for him to not appear. However, never did she imagine that Wei Suo had been lying on the floor in front of her and then killed the most powerful skinny old man from their opponent’s camp. Furthermore, based on the conversation between Wei Suo and the gray clothed cultivator, it seemed that there was more than just one or two powerful cultivators from their opponent’s camp that died in Wei Suo’s hands.
“Big sister, can you not shout out my true name?” Hearing Nangong Yuqing calling him, Wei Suo immediately displayed a dejected expression.
‘Fuck, if any of these people were to escape, then manage to determine who I am in the future and come for revenge or whatnot, it’ll be troublesome then. Nangong Yuqing, you seemed to be that clever before and that Wind Spirit Eagle Illusion Light Talisman was executed at the correct moment earlier, so why is it that you suddenly turned stupid? If there’s anything you want to say, at the very least we should finish these guys off first. Ah. Hey, these guys are scared of me. Take that opportunity and cast the Ice Mantises Illusion Light Talisman so that we can kill another one or two of them.’
While thinking like that in his heart, Wei Suo deliberately raised the Dark Demon Blade that he had used to kill the skinny old man and the Dark Phosphorous Bone Blade that he held in his hand to allow the gray clothed cultivator and them to have a good look at them. At the same time, he humphed and said, “That purple gowned old man, he’s pretty disappointing. He was unable to even block this Spirit level Magical Treasure of mine. However, as for that guy wearing yellow clothes, he managed to block it. I ended up having to spend two Dark Phosphorous Bone Swords in order to kill him.”
The gray clothed cultivator and his accomplices gulped down a mouthful of saliva with great difficulty. They were already drenched in cold sweat. The might displayed from the Dark Demon Blade was something that they had all seen for themselves earlier. It truly possessed the attack power of a Spirit level Magical Treasure. With their knowledge and experience, they were able to tell that the sword that Wei Suo held in his hand was truly a Dark Phosphorous Bone Sword. For Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivators, a consumable artifact at the level of Dark Phosphorous Bone Sword was a luxury that they could not afford to use. After all, a single usage was equivalent to consuming a thousand five hundred Low Quality Spiritual Stones.
However, based on what Wei Suo had said, it seemed like this sort of amazingly powerful consumable artifact that cost a thousand five hundred Low Quality Spiritual Stones was like bok choy to him, something that he could cast aside at will. However, the important aspect was that such a bok choy was something that all the people present, including the gray clothed cultivator, could not afford to be hit with.
[Fumma: ‘bok choy’ ~ cheap asian food]
“Hey! You, pretty boy in white, your sister, I still haven’t finished talking. I didn’t say that you can leave yet, yet you actually dared to run away?”
Right at the moment when the gray clothed cultivator and his accomplices were gulping down their saliva with great difficulty and have their hearts filled with chilliness, Wei Suo suddenly pointed behind Nangong Yuqing and them.
“I didn’t try to run?” The white clothed cultivator who had been surprised by Nangong Yuqing’s Illusion Light Talisman and failed his sneak attack did not dare to attack either. Seeing Wei Suo pointing at him, he was immediately stunned. He did not understand why Wei Suo would say such a thing as he had been standing there motionlessly the entire time.
However, once Wei Suo said those words, the gray clothed cultivator and his accomplices seemed to have instantly woken up from their dreams. Like a frantic swarm of bees, they rushed toward the passageway before them in disarray.
“Holy fuck!” Seeing this scene, the white clothed cultivator eyes bulged wide open. He immediately turned around and started fleeing too.
“What the heck are you guys standing there for? Kill them!”
A wheezing was heard. The Dark Demon Blade had been cast by Wei Suo once again. It was shot toward the closest cultivator among the gray clothed cultivator’s group, a bald headed cultivator.
After being shouted by Wei Suo, Nangong Yuqing and them all woke back up. They immediately cast their respective artifacts and skill techniques toward the gray clothed cultivator’s group.
The defensive light cover that surrounded the bald headed cultivator was pretty powerful. Wei Suo’s Dark Demon Blade actually did not manage to completely shatter it. It only managed to create countless cracks. However, the artifacts and skill techniques from Nangong Yuqing’s group that followed suit immediately shattered the bald headed cultivator’s defensive light cover and torn his body into pieces.
In the time of a wink, the situation had completely reversed. It had turned to a one-sided attack.
“Capture one of them so that we can figure out where they’re from!”
The waxy-yellow complexion Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator naturally did not wish to allow the gray clothed cultivator and them to escape. He waved his hands, a dazzling silvery light was shot out from his hand. The light managed to instantly smash aside the shield that protected a squared faced burly cultivator behind the gray clothed cultivator. The shield was firmly stuck into the stone wall.
At the same time, the short stature black clothed cultivator who was trembling after being frozen fiercely pushed both of his hands to the ground. ‘Boom.’ The entire ground trembled. Over half of the passageway before the gray clothed cultivator and them collapsed. Sharp stalagmite-like stone pillars appeared from the ceiling of the passageway.
Wei Suo immediately swallowed an Energy Recovery Pellet. He was holding a Stone Pillar Talisman in his hand.
This level two Stone Pillar Talisman was something that he obtained from the horse-faced cultivator that he killed alongside the purple clothed old daoist at the beginning. Once it was cast, it would begin to incessantly create numerous adult-thigh sized stone pillars. Currently, the black clothed shorty of the Iron Policy’s group of five had already collapsed over half of the passageway. With merely this Stone Pillar Talisman, the passageway where the gray clothed cultivator and his accomplices were trying to escape to would be completely sealed off.
The white clothed cultivator from behind had already fled by himself. The remaining three people of the gray clothed cultivator’s group was definitely no match for Wei Suo and the five Iron Policy members.
Wei Suo’s hand was completely extended. A stream of True Elemental Energy started to surge toward his hand. However, right at this moment, Wei Suo instantly became motionless.
Following two sounds that seemed like a bottle cork being pulled open, a cultivator following behind the gray clothed cultivator and the waxy-yellow complexion cultivator of the Iron Policy’s group of five stopped moving. “Hea hea” sound was being emitted from their mouths. The faces of the two men became shriveled with an astonishing speed.
Nangong Yuqing and the rest of them all displayed expressions of terror at the same time. It seemed as if they had suddenly recalled something. A stream of white powder was cast from both Nangong Yuqing and the extremely pale faced gray clothed cultivator’s hands.
Once the white powders were sprinkled about, the space that originally does not contain anything suddenly started to flicker with blue light.
“Mind Devouring Bugs!”
After being stunned for a moment, Wei Suo finally managed to react. His hairs became completely erect.
Mind Devouring Bugs!
The Mind Devouring Bugs were demonic beasts that not only Wei Suo had never seen before but many high level cultivators of the Heavenly Profound Continent had never seen them before either. At this moment, after White Phosphorous Beast’s bone powder was sprinkled all over the place, this sort of level five demonic beast that was capable of invisibility finally appeared.
Furthermore, it was not a single one. Instead, there was a total of four Mind Devouring Bugs!
The appearance of the Mind Devouring Bugs resembled octopuses. They possessed eight tentacles that were covered with suckers. Their bodies were extremely polished, appeared to be very slippery and was filled with disgusting mucus. When this mucus touched the White Phosphorus Beast’s bone powder, they started to emit a blue colored light. As for their bodies, they were round like a ball. Their fish-bubble-like head that did not even have any eyes possessed a flat mouth. Inside this flat mouth was a sharp, bone straw.
These extremely disgusting Mind Devouring Bugs had come down from above the tomb chambers. Their tentacles that were covered with suckers allowed them to walk above the ceilings as if they were level grounds. At this moment, the cyan colored cultivator beside the gray clothed cultivator and the waxy-yellow complexion Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator both had a Mind Devouring Bug above their head. Like holding a watermelon, the straws from the Mind Devouring Bugs had been pierced into these two cultivators’ heads. With a gudu gudu sound, the straws were sucking incessantly.
Right at the moment when Nangong Yuqing and the gray clothed cultivator sprinkled their White Phosphorous Beast’s bone powder, another Mind Devouring Bug had sneakily arrived above the head of the hemp clothed cultivator beside Nangong Yuqing. Its mouth was wide open. The straw within its mouth was thrust towards the head of the hemp clothed cultivator.
Because of that, Wei Suo managed to get a clear view of the straw within its mouth.
This straw appeared like a sticky large intestine. However, the straw was composed of sections of hollow bones. The foot-like sections of hollow bones only gave off white light after encountering the White Phosphorus Beast’s bone powder. Had it not been for that, they would be completely invisible.
The eyes of the hemp clothed cultivator were instantly shrunk back. Originally, with his reaction speed, he was completely capable of dodging or using skill techniques when seeing this Mind Devouring Bug. However, at this time, everyone saw a lump of semi-transparent ripple being shot out from that Mind Devouring Bug’s mouth. Like a large transparent bell, it completely trapped the hemp clothed cultivator within it.
The hemp clothed cultivator’s body became stiff. As if he had been petrified, he became incapable of moving. ‘Bub.’ Without stopping in its tracks at all, the straw of this Mind Devouring Bug pierced into the head of this hemp clothed cultivator. ‘Gudu gudu.’ It began sucking.
Wei Suo swallowed a mouthful of saliva with great difficulty. His body was once again drenched with cold sweat.
Even with this many cultivators present, not a single person, including even the green gowned old man, managed to sense when these Mind Devouring Bugs showed up. It would appear that the concealment abilities of these Mind Devouring Bugs have reached an astonishing level. As for Wei Suo, he was merely lucky as even the waxy-yellow complexion Heavenly Circuit Stage cultivator had his brains sucked dry and died without the slightest resistance. Had a Mind Devouring Bug sneak attacked him, then he too would’ve died after having his brains sucked dry without any ability to resist.
The matter that caused Wei Suo’s limbs to feel soft was that among the four Mind Devouring Bugs, one’s size was clearly much bigger than the other three. Furthermore, its slick and greasy skin were filled with deep wrinkles.
When the hemp clothed cultivator’s brain was pierced through, the short statured black clothed cultivator beside him bellowed. A stalagmite suddenly extended from the ceiling of the tomb chamber. It fiercely thrust at the Mind Devouring Bug that had killed the hemp clothed cultivator. However, right after the stalagmite started extending, a formless sound wave was shot out from the mouth of the largest Mind Devouring Bug. The stalagmite had been directly crushed into powder by the formless sound wave. As for the black clothed cultivator, he had also been hit by the formless sound wave. His body shivered for a moment. After that, his eyes turned lifeless. Like an idiot, he stood there motionlessly.
At the same time, Liu Wu had cast a fire blade at this Mind Devouring Bug. However, the fire blade was reflected by its skin. His skill technique did not manage to injure this Mind Devouring Bug in the slightest!
“Elder Mind Devouring Bug!”
With an ability greatly surpassing that of ordinary Mind Devouring Bugs, the identity of this Mind Devouring Bug that had a body filled with wrinkles was abundantly clear now.
