Chapter 70 – Thoroughly
Translated by: Pumpkin
Edited by: Fumma, Earl
After secretly breathing in a mouthful of cold air, Wei Suo took out the Cyan Emperor Gourd that he obtained from the single eyed cultivator’s possessions. He then shouted, “Since you all do not understand the concept of behaving with a trace of kindness, then I could only allow you all to experience this most powerful Magical Treasure of mine.”
Wen Daoge was startled. Once he saw the Cyan Emperor Gourd in Wei Suo’s hand, he immediately started to laugh his head off. “Eagle Eye Han’s Cyan Emperor Gourd? Are you thinking that I don’t know that this item of his was so damaged that it’s pretty much useless now? You actually tried to use this item to deceive us?”
“Wanna bet that once I use this item, you will be met with an extremely ugly death?”
While anxiously watching the trace of yellow line approaching Wen Daoge and the short and stout daoist, Wei Suo began to instill his True Elemental Energy into the Cyan Emperor Gourd. Who knew if there might be one or two Mind Devouring Bugs above his head right now.
“Haha, pretend, continue to pretend. I shall see how exactly will you make us die in an extremely ugly manner.” The short and stout daoist was the first to stop. He began to laugh out loud.
Perhaps it might be because he was fat, that the Elder Mind Devouring Bug had not eaten fatty meat for a long time and was laughing out loud, Wei Suo was able to clearly see the trace of faint yellow line shifting its direction toward the location of that short and stout daoist.
“From now on, everyone, you mustn’t move and make a sound!”
Wei Suo softly said to Nangong Yuqing and Liu Wu. Following that, a stream of cyan colored wood elemental gas began to emit from the Cyan Emperor Gourd and covered Wei Suo, Nangong Yuqing, and Liu Wu.
Nangong Yuqing and Liu Wu did not understand why Wei Suo told them such a thing. However, they immediately did what Wei Suo told them to do. Motionlessly, like logs, they stood there.
“Haha, this is the method at which you said you’re going to let us die an extremely ugly death with?” The short and stout daoist was laughing so hard that he was about to hug his stomach in pain. This Cyan Emperor Gourd was incapable of even emitting something that even resembled a defensive barrier. The stream of cyan gas did not even manage to condense and solidify. Yet, that Wei Suo actually said that he would make them die in an extremely ugly manner.
However, right at this split second, Wei Suo saw clearly with his eyes that the trace of yellow line that had already reached the short and stout daoist’s head suddenly drop. “Bub.” In an instant, the short and stout daoist’s smiling expression turned stiff. His body started to violently tremble and he began to echo ‘he he’ from his mouth.
At the same time, a light echo also sounded from above Wen Daoge’s head. His body clearly also became stiff.
Wei Suo nearly stopped breathing. He felt that his scalp was filled with numbness. It was evident that there was more than only the Elder Mind Devouring Bug present.
Wen Daoge suddenly emitted an extremely mournful scream. He violently raised his hands above his head. Two scarlet colored bracelets flew out from his wrists and were shot toward the empty space above his head. A stuffy ‘boom’ sound echoed. Those bracelets sent the invisible Mind Devouring Bug flying. At the same time, blood visibly appeared above his head.
While screaming, he violently sprayed out a handful of White Phosphorus Beast’s bone powder. After this handful of White Phosphorus Beast’s bone powder sprinkled through the surroundings, four Mind Devouring Bugs became visible.
Among them, the Mind Devouring Bug that was struck by Wen Daoge’s counterattack seemed to be seriously injured. The two scarlet bracelets created two holes on its abdomen area. The bracelets were directly shot into its abdomen. Yellow colored blood rushed out from the two holes on its abdomen and its mouth.
The matter that caused Wei Suo, Nangong Yuqing, and Liu Wu to have their entire bodies’ hairs sticking up was that two of the Mind Devouring Bugs were on the ceiling of the cave not far from the top of their heads. At this moment, they seemed to not be able to detect them and appeared to be a bit confused.
At this moment, rotten corpses controlled by Rotten Corpse Beasts have also appeared from the passageways connected to this cave.
Blood flowed down from the top of Wen Daoge’s head to his face. Regardless of whether it was the current Wen Daoge who was screaming miserably or the four Mind Devouring Bugs, they were all extremely terrifying to Wei Suo, Nangong Yuqing, and Liu Wu. Seeing Wen Daoge screaming in such a frantic manner, Wei Suo didn’t know whether his brain was sucked at all by that Mind Devouring Bug when it was pierced by its straw earlier.
Wen Daoge suddenly did an action movement that caused Wei Suo’s entire body to tighten. He suddenly raised his hand and sent a wind elemental skill technique at Wei Suo.
“Woosh!” A pillar of wind was shot horizontally towards Wei Suo and them. In an instant, it dispersed over half of the cyan wood elemental gas that covered Wei Suo, Nangong Yuqing, and Liu Wu.
It was evident that Wen Daoge did not have his brain sucked out and become an idiot. This level two Heavenly Circuit Stage expert was truly not someone that ordinary low level cultivators could compare with. At this moment, Wei Suo didn’t know whether it was because Wen Daoge thought that if he was to involve them, they would be able to kill the four Mind Devouring Bugs or was it because he was determined to drag them down with him. Regardless, what he did know was that they were now in danger.
Sure enough, at practically the same instant when the wind pillar shot out from Wen Daoge dissipated over half of the wood elemental gas that covered the three of them, the two Mind Devouring Bugs that were not far from them instantly reacted like sharks that smelled the reeking of blood!
“Stake it all!”
Wei Suo shouted loudly. He immediately activated the Burning Sun Treasured Talisman in his hand. The powerful light had caused the two Mind Devouring Bugs that rushed towards them to have black smoke rushing out from their bodies. At the same time they rolled into two balls, a ‘woosh’ was heard. Wei Suo immediately gave his all and shot the Dark Demon Blade towards one of the two Mind Devouring Bugs. His True Elemental Energy that had just nearly completely recovered instantly reached its bottom once again.
At the same time, Nangong Yuqing and Liu Wu’s Firefly Flying Blades and the pair of black claws were also shot out. Nangong Yuqing’s six Firefly Flying Blades hacked down on the other Mind Devouring Bug. As for Liu Wu’s pair of black claws, they landed on the Mind Devouring Bug that was hit with Wei Suo’s Dark Demon Blade.
It was evident that this Mind Devouring Bug did not have an abnormal defense like that of the Elder Mind Devouring Bug. The slash from the Dark Demon Blade instantly cut apart a large wound. The pair of black claws shot out by Liu Wu directly entered its abdomen. Yellow colored blood was spraying out from the mouth of this Mind Devouring Bug. The sucker on its octopus tentacle-like legs were unable to continue to suck on the wall. This Mind Devouring Bug directly fell to the ground, and from the way it seemed, it was most definitely dead.
As for the other Mind Devouring Bug that was hit by Nangong Yuqing’s Firefly Flying Blades, six cuts appeared on its body. Although it was not greatly injured, yellow blood was still flowing out from those cuts. Even if the effect from the White Phosphorus Beast’s bone powder was to cease later, they should still be able to see this Mind Devouring Bug.
“Oh, right. Do the two of you have any more White Phosphorus Beast’s bone powder on you?” Once he thought of the White Phosphorus Beast’s bone powder, Wei Suo who had already used all of his Energy Recovery Pellets was gulping down one bottle of Energy Recovery Medicine after another while asking Nangong Yuqing and Liu Wu this question.
“I still have a bag on me. Do you want me to give it to you?” Liu Wu immediately replied.
“What use is it in giving it to me? When you see the effect of the White Phosphorus Beast’s bone powder ceasing later, just directly scatter that bag of White Phosphorus Beast’s bone powder.” Wei Suo had only spoken these words to Liu Wu when he saw that, on the other side, the Elder Mind Devouring Bug was firmly staring at Wen Daoge. A transparent ripple had already shot out from its mouth and landed on Wen Daoge’s body.
As if petrified, Wen Daoge instantly grew stiff! The straw within the Elder Mind Devouring Bug’s mouth was violently thrust forward. “Bub.” Wen Daoge’s head was pierced with a straw once again!
The straw of this Elder Mind Devouring Bug was actually much longer than an ordinary Mind Devouring Bug’s. From where Wei Suo and them stood, it appeared like a thirty to forty feet long drinking straw. Seeing this straw connecting the Elder Mind Devouring Bug and Wen Daoge, Wei Suo and Nangong Yuqing begun having goosebumps all over their bodies.
However, right at this moment, Wen Daoge’s body actually started to violently twist and turn. That powerful beak-shaped Magical Treasure of his turned into a yellow light and was shot toward the Elder Mind Devouring Bug’s large, open mouth.
Wei Suo’s eyes were opened to its widest. He didn’t expect for Wen Daoge’s awareness to be this tyrannical. He actually managed to relieve himself from the Elder Mind Devouring Bug’s awareness attack this quickly. If this Elder Mind Devouring Bug and Wen Daoge was to fight each other to a state where both sides were greatly wounded, then this would truly be perfect for Wei Suo and them.
At the time when the yellow light shot out by Wen Daoge with his all was about to reach the Elder Mind Devouring Bug’s mouth, a gray colored light suddenly rushed forth from within the Elder Mind Devouring Bug’s mouth. After touching this gray colored light, the brilliance on Wen Daoge’s astonishingly powerful Magical Treasure instantly became much duller. It seemed as if it had turned into a piece of scrap iron in an instant. It hit the mouth of the Elder Mind Devouring Bug and bounced off it.
Wen Daoge’s dying strike was this easily defeated by the Elder Mind Devouring Bug. A ‘gulu’ drinking sound was heard. The Elder Mind Devouring Bug appeared to have sucked in a big mouthful of liquid. Wen Daoge’s hands and legs flopped. He instantly appeared to become vegetative.
A special ability obtained after leveling up!
The Black Water Gourd that the green old man used earlier, its most powerful aspect was the Rotten Corpse Water within it and not the gourd itself. Rotten Corpse Water was refined through using a large amount of Rotten Corpse Fluid and many different types of filthy materials. Not only was it capable of rapidly corroding spiritual energy, it was also capable of rapidly corroding the vast majority of essence metals and jade stones. It was something that was even more wicked than the main material used to craft the Dark Phosphorus Bone Sword, the Dark Phosphorous Sand.
As for this Elder Mind Devouring Bug, it had occupied this underground tomb for a very long time. It had likely seen more rotten corpse than the cultivators that specialized in making Rotten Corpse Water. As for the special ability that it obtained after leveling up, it was actually something like the Rotten Corpse Water. Moveover, from the speed at which it corroded the Magical Treasure, it seemed to surpass the Rotten Corpse Water from the green faced skinny old man’s gourd.
It would appear that the reason the Elder Mind Devouring Bug was wounded by Wei Suo before was because Wei Suo’s Burning Sun Treasured Talisman possessed some restrictive ability on it. Furthermore, it was also not prepared.
With its intelligence, was it still possible to kill it now?
Wei Suo watched as the Elder Mind Devouring Bug killed Wen Daoge. A chill ran through his entire body; he was covered with cold sweat all over.
Right at this moment, the Elder Mind Devouring Bug recognized Wei Suo. It immediately retreated the straw from Wen Daoge’s half sucked head. It appeared as if it had raised its head and snarled. Immediately, it charged toward Wei Suo.
“Holy fuck!” Wei Suo who had still not finished recovering his True Elemental Energy began to activate the Cyan Emperor Gourd as if his life depended on it. At the same time, he sliced the Dark Demon Blade over his hand, cutting it. After he did that, he immediately threw the Dark Demon Blade that was covered with his blood toward the side.
Immediately after Wei Suo covered himself, Nangong Yuqing, and Liu Wu with the Cyan Emperor Gourd’s wood elemental gas, at practically the same instant the Dark Demon Blade was cast aside, the Elder Mind Devouring Bug’s straw was already rapidly shot towards the Dark Demon Blade.
