Chapter 98: An Odd Encounter?
What Wei Suo wasn’t aware of was that at the moment he disappeared into the formation array; the red robed cultivator he competed with at the Earth rank Earth Furnace, had also followed him into this building.
Heading towards the transport formation array Wei Suo just departed from, this sinister red robed cultivator paid 2 low quality spiritual stones, and stood at the entrance of the transport formation array.
On the other side. After walking out of the formation array, Wei Suo had an ugly expression on his face even before determining where he had been transported to.
His location was within a valley. That surnamed Chen cultivator had already reached the valley entrance, producing a kite-like magic artifact.
Wind Bamboo Kite!
Seven Planets City, Chilling Maple Valley distinct flying magic artifact. It’s appearance was shaped like a bamboo kite, producing creaks when sitting over it. Yet its flying speed vastly exceeded what Wei Suo’s Windcloud Shoes could perform.
Wei Suo clenched his teeth, as he retrieved Wen Daoge’s flying magic treasure – Whitejade Crane. Filling it with true energy, its appearance started to turn bulky before inflating. The Whitejade Crane inflated massively, floating in front of Wei Suo.
“Fu!” The Whitejade Crane shot off with Wei Suo. Yet it became slightly disorientated in midair, Wei Suo’s figure seemed to be struggling to maintain his balance.
“Surnamed Chen!” Yet to familiarize himself with his magic treasure, almost causing him to fall from the sky, Wei Suo released a shrilling yell, “Did my parents die in your hands?”
The surnamed Chen cultivator replied instantly, but didn’t bother turning around. “You can find the answer in what I gave you, chasing me is useless.”
His voice echoed through the night sky.
The place they were transported to, was shockingly nearby Ashbone Mount north-west of Spirit Peak City. There were demonic beasts like Thunder Owls and Rock Apes. Within the night sky, howls of numerous demonic beasts could be heard.
But how could Wei Suo give up. He tried his utmost to control the excessively vibrating Whitejade Crane. Releasing another powerful yell, “My parents had always taken care of you, waiting on you, patient and dote on you. Why can’t you stop and give me an explanation?”
Surnamed Chen cultivator didn’t bother replying. He bluntly headed for the nearby mountain forest.
Although Wei Suo’s Whitejade Crane was wrecked with a displeasurable appearance, its speed was much faster than the Wind Bamboo Kite. Wei Suo was currently forcing himself to utilize this Whitejade Crane, but could not exploit the speed of the Whitejade Crane. Hence, the gap slowly got pulled apart, and surnamed Chen cultivator’s figure slowly turned tinier.
One pursuing, one fleeing. The two flew for nearly a hundred miles. Surnamed Chen cultivator didn’t dare to enter the depths of Ashbone Mount for fear of the level 5 demonic beast, Thunder Owl. He paced himself along the edges of the Ashbone Mount. He wanted to borrow the surrounding terrain and mountain forest to escape from Wei Suo’s pursuit. But as Wei Suo gradually became accustomed to controlling the Whitejade Crane, he ultimately couldn’t shrug Wei Suo off.
“This brat definitely cannot escape. Just prepare for a duel with him, fortunately we just purchased many items.” The old man’s voice rang out in Wei Suo’s ears.
The fleeing speed of cultivator Chen had already reached its limit, but still wasn’t able to shrug off Wei Suo. Wei Suo was becoming more accustomed to the Whitejade Crane, he would definitely catch up in no time.
“There’s another cultivator here?”
Suddenly in this instance, Wei Suo and cultivator Chen witnessed a red flash of technique from the left of the mountain valley.
“Han Weiwei?” Wei Suo was in disbelief. The person that appeared in his vision, was actually that Han Weiwei. Her panda eyes were surprisingly completely healed now.
Currently, a flaming shield was cast in front of her, her face flawlessly white as she sprinted towards the mountain valley. Behind her were 5 gigantic bats, 3 inches long and covered in grey fur with a Wolf-like head, in hot pursuit.
Wei Suo carried a speechless respect for her current situation.
Because those greyish gigantic bats were obviously the level 4 low grade demonic beast, Wolf Bats.
Any demonic beasts above level 4 were already considered difficult within the Heaven dome, and she had lured 5 of them.
Even though Wei Suo possessed several half-spirit artifacts and had pretty adequate defensive artifacts; but against that many Wolf Bats, he would surely need to expend a huge amount of energy.
Besides, what was the time now? It was night time; even level 2-3 Divine Sea Stage cultivators wouldn’t dare to carelessly roam about.
But she was alone at this period of time, around the periphery of Ashbone Mount known to contain many demonic beasts. Looking at this scene, Wei Suo felt utter absurdity.
Han Weiwei looked like she was in a critical state, it seemed like she had run out of energy pellets. Her true energy had depleted to a rate that even her most powerful artifacts could no longer be activated.
If cultivator Chen and Wei Suo didn’t rescue her, that charming beauty would surely end up as the Wolf Bat’s supper. In a flash, Wei Suo’s heart tightened up; if he chose to rescue her, then surely cultivator Chen would escape. But at this moment, that insane Han Weiwei similarly caught glimpse of him and cultivator Chen. She turned pleasantly surprised when she saw Wei Suo and cultivator Chen.
Looking at the Whitejade Crane and Wei Suo above it, her face flushed with a rosy astonishment.
“Pig! Are you waiting to die?” Seeing this event unfolding, Wei Suo’s vision blackened as the Dark Demon Blade in his hands shot out.
The winds rustled against the mountain forest. A terrifying wolf head upon a crow black blur swept towards Han Weiwei’s head, widening its razor-sharp fangs. Instead, a ferocious wind blade chopped horizontally against its skull.
Wei Suo’s true enemy had been instantly sucked dry by the Dark Demon Blade; forcefully controlling the Whitejade Crane as he directly swallowed two energy pellets.
The 4 other Wolf Bats emitted a piercing screech, as they darted towards Wei Suo.
With an ugly expression, Wei Suo instantly descended to the ground, his hand swiftly producing out Liu Sanbao’s bronze-colored clock, activating it.
A bronze screen enveloped around him in an instant as 4 threatening grey blurs slashed against the bronze screen, releasing a piercing resonance.
After being chased incessantly by those 4 bats, Han Weiwei stood shocked by the side.
Wei Suo slightly tilted his head, his face was still covered in bronze. But in that instance, cultivator Chen had since disappeared from his vision.
“PA PA PA PA!”
The 4 Wolf Bats fluttered around the bronze screen of Wei Suo, constantly testing its strength with their wind blades.
His face gloomy, Wei Suo calmly retrieved out a circle shaped white bony shield that was about half his physique. With a blurry movement, a Golden Serpent net swept out as it covered a Wolf Bat.
A dull golden short spear drilled out from his hand, impaling into the thick fur of that trapped Wolf Bat. Its head exploded with blood, dropping to the ground without making a sound.
“Ah!” Han Weiwei gasped.
As she observed the vicious assaults by the Wolf Bats, Wei Suo’s bronze screen ultimately couldn’t withstand it anymore as it shattered completely.
She could tell that the Whitebone shield covering Wei Suo’s front should be a Cloud shield formed by forging the skull of a Cloud Python; it was considered a semi-spirit class defensive artifact. But right now, a Wolf Bat swerved around Wei Suo in a flash, releasing a sinister greyish wind blade from its mouth, cutting towards the back of Wei Suo’s head.
The wind blade slashed towards his head. But in this instance, a dazzling fiery phoenix converged out as it blocked off the wind blade.
Han Weiwei was shell shocked, before realizing that Wei Suo possessed another powerful artifact robe that contained defensive properties.
At that moment, Wei Suo lifted both his hands as a red ray beamed out from his palms. Han Weiwei didn’t know where those 2 red beams came from, but that Wolf Bat instantly slumped to the ground motionlessly.
3 of the Wolf Bats just died like that to Wei Suo in that short instance. Detecting that something was wrong, the two other Wolf Bats fled for their lives.
Wei Suo extended his hand, a bucket-sized brass hoop appeared perfectly above one of the wildly fleeing bats. In a flash, the Wolf Bat was ensnared, directly colliding to the ground.
By now, the other Wolf Bat had widened its gap between Wei Suo by over 5-6 meters. That dull golden spear shot out from Wei suo’s hand again, piercing mercilessly into the back of the Wolf Bat, as the miserable figure slumped down.
The dull golden spear returned into his hand, but he viciously threw it out again towards that trapped Wolf Bat within the brass hoop ring; instantly dealing a fatal blow to its head.
The wolf bat shrieked violently, before turning deafeningly still.
Han Weiwei observed with her jaws dropped, a mere Divine Sea Stage level 5 cultivator would have a tough time dealing with 5 Wolf Bats. But this Wei Suo, he actually slayed all 5 of the Wolf Bats, not even 1 managed to escape.
“Why did you come here?” Because Wei Suo was also previously riding on a flying magic treasure that a loose cultivator shouldn’t even possess, he became more mysterious in Han Weiwei’s eyes.
“Why did I come here? I’m afraid that question should be left for you.” Wei Suo didn’t even bother glancing at Han Weiwei, his expression sunken as he retrieved two fiery red bracelets from one of the bat’s body. His voice icy as he continued, “Even if you were looking to die, you shouldn’t drag others down with you.”
Han Weiwei’s face turned pale. She originally wanted to offer her gratitude in good will, but she never expected Wei Suo to make such a statement. In that instance, she clenched her teeth unable to utter a single word.
With an ugly expression, Wei Suo decided to leave without even paying attention to her.
“If you think I am dragging you down, then you could have just left me.” Seeing Wei Suo being so cold to her, Han Weiwei couldn’t contain her emotions anymore. “I know I was at loggerheads with you previously, but we’ve already called it quits. As a man, you shouldn’t be so petty right?”
“I’m petty? Do you know how important that man I was chasing was to me?!” Wei Suo exploded with rage, deathly staring into Han Weiwei’s eyes. “Even if I’m petty, it beats a lunatic like you. A precious young missy of the Precious Treasure Pavilion, running around aimlessly alone in the night. Rest assured, if I see this lunatic again, I’ll definitely not save you.”
Han Weiwei was frightened by Wei Suo’s expression, reflexedly taking a step back.
Wei Suo activated his Whitejade Crane again, turning to leave. After leaving for a while and hearing that Han Weiwei hadn’t made a single sound, he couldn’t help glancing back. Seeing that Han Weiwei was still rooted to the ground without moving, displaying her pale look, Wei Suo felt a certain guilt as he returned with an ugly expression. Tossing Han Weiwei a pellet bottle. “There are energy pellets inside.”
Han Weiwei caught Wei Suo’s pellet bottle. In that moment, she stood there without knowing what to say.
“Why, are you thinking of bringing that home before you eat one?” Seeing Han Weiwei’s petrified expression, Wei Suo raged out nastily. “Or do you think the pellet is poisoned, you’re scared that I’ll poison you?”
Han Weiwei didn’t argue with him, miserably consuming 2 energy pellets. Wei Suo’s face finally turned a little better.
“Eh?” At this moment, a noise disrupted their peace. A red figure appeared within Wei Suo’s and Han Weiwei’s expression.
“It’s actually him?”
What shocked Wei Suo was that the abrupt appearance, was a cultivator wearing a red robe artifact. It was shockingly that feminine looking red robed middle aged cultivator.
