Chapter 1033: Backup Plan
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
After sealing Wu Shan’s meridians, Su Mo glanced at the Netherworld Devil Sect experts surrounding him. He looked at Yan Tai and said gravely, “Get your man to back away! Or I’ll rid Wu Shan of his cultivation!”
Su Mo would not accept holding the exchange in a situation that had him surrounded by the Netherworld Devil Sect, there were too many uncertainties.
Yan Tai narrowed his eyes slightly, but waved his hands and signaled for the people to back away.
Moments later, the experts surrounding them backed about ten miles away.
Su Mo nodded with satisfaction. He said to Huangfu Qing, “We will both let go after three breaths and allow them to make their way back by themselves!”
Huangfu Qing nodded silently.
Three breaths passed in a matter of seconds. Su Mo released Wu Shan while Huangfu Qing released Hong Qingxuan.
In a flash, both Wu Shan and Hong Qingxuan started sprinting.
Hong Qingxuan ran towards Su Mo like a dancing butterfly.
Wu Shan was way faster than Hong Qingxuan even though he was badly injured and had broken bones in his legs. It was because he had Li Feng’s body, andLi Feng was a Body-refining Expert. His body constitution was strong.
Wu Shan ran quickly, hurtling towards Yan Tai.
Su Mo stared at the running pair and could not help but frown. Wu Shan was way faster than Hong Qingxuan.
In this case, the two would pass each other closer to Yan Tai than to him. It was highly likely that Yan Tai might attack then!
“Qingxuan, hurry up!” Su Mo could not help but press her.
However, Hong Qingxuan could not use her cultivation powers and thus, her speed was limited. She could not outrun Wu Shan.
Then, Su Mo lashed out with his power, enveloping Hong Qingxuan and Wu Shan with his mind, attempting to send them both into his Divine Map.
That’s right! Both of them!
It would be best if he could rescue Hong Qingxuan and keep Wu Shan.
However, Su Mo did not succeed. The entire space was filled with countless Mind power. He could not take anyone into his map.
There was a short distance of about 3000 feet between Su Mo and Huangfu Qing.
Wu Shan and Hong Qingxuan passed each other within seconds.
Su Mo gritted his teeth and swooped in to catch Hong Qingxuan with his hands.
He did not have time to wait for Hong Qingxuan to return and was prepared to grab her at the fastest speed.
Suddenly, startling calls rang throughout the space.
The hundreds of Netherworld Devil Sect experts, including Yan Tai, lashed out with the Dark Force in their hands, prepared to kill Su Mo.
Yan Tai raised his hand and was about to kill Su Mo with a slap of his palms. However, his expression suddenly changed.
“Oh No!” Yan Tai called out, shocked.
Because at this very moment, two rays of cold light shone from Su Mo’s body at an incredible speed, hurtling towards Wu Shan.
They were two Natal Spiritual Sword. Su Mo had also used his Spiritual Sword while he reached out for Hong Qingxuan. He had attacked Wu Shan so that Yan Tai would save him, thus giving him time to take Hong Qingxuan away.
Yan Tai lifted his palms and paused slightly before slapping at the two Spiritual Swords.
Yan Tai moved quickly and was incredibly powerful. He shot out a large Dark Force palm print and hit the two Spiritual Swords, sending them flying.
However, at this time, Su Mo’s Dark Force palm had already caught Hong Qingxuan.
He pulled hard, pulling Hong Qingxuan to him.
He took a step back at the same time, taking Hong Qingxuan with him into the endless mist.
Just then, the hundreds of experts from the Netherworld Devil Sect attacked. The area in front of Su Mo turned into a large abyss, and the mist was torn apart and dissipated.
The Netherworld Devil Sect experts could not stop Su Mo at all because they were too far away.
Yan Tai was somewhat embarrassed when he saw that Su Mo had disappeared. He had not expected him to enter the mist.
However, hedid not give chase because it would be difficult for anyone to find his way out of the Mist Mountains.
Furthermore, he had expected this ending. Su Mo would still die after this!
The spectating crowd sighed in the distance. Su Mo had entered the Mist Mountains. He might never get out.
In the sky, Yan Tai dropped down, landing beside Wu Shan.
“Young Master, how are you?” Yan Tai asked worriedly.
Wu Shan shook his head. While he had been badly injured, he just needed to recuperate for about a month before he would be fully recovered.
Turning to look at the Mist Mountains, Wu Shan’s gaze was filled with venom. He said angrily, “It’s such a pity we couldn’t kill Su Mo!”
Wu Shan felt slightly regretful. The Mist Mountains was a forbidden area, so Su Mo must have tricks up his sleeves for he dared to enter. He might even be able to come out!
Yan Tai smiled and said firmly, “Young master, rest assured, I still have a backup plan! Su Mo will die!”
“Oh? First Elder, what backup plan do you have?” Wu Shan asked curiously. Su Mo had already fled into the Mist Mountains, so what trick did Yan Tai have hidden up his sleeves?
“Young master, let’s walk while we talk!”
With that, Yan Tai called for those from the Netherworld Devil Sect. Then, with the flick of his sleeves, the air curled around Wu Shan and they flew away.
Hundreds of people from the Netherworld Devil Sect left within seconds, leaving behind tens and thousands of spectators.
“Su Mo entered the Mist Mountains. Would he ever emerge?”
“It’d be difficult! Only one in ten thousand have managed to leave the mountains since ancient times!”
“Sigh, could the talent of a generation, the genius of all time, disappear forever just like this?”
The crowd sighed and felt indignant on behalf of Su Mo. He had foolishly taken a doomed path for a woman.
Zhan Luan and Jiang Fengran were both in the crowd and they shared the same sentiments.
But they were not powerful enough and could not help Su Mo.
Su Mo and Hong Qingxuan stood across each other inside the endless mist.
Su Mo held Hong Qingxuan’s slender white hands and sighed, his gaze apologetic. He said, “Qingxuan, I’m sorry, you wouldn’t have been captured by the Netherworld Devil Sect if not for me.”
Su Mo blamed himself for it. He was determined not to let something like this happen again.
Meanwhile, Hong Qingxuan was not delighted by her reunion with Su Mo. On the contrary, she looked rather upset.
“Brother Su Mo, how could you enter the Mist Mountain? How are we going to get out?” Hong Qingxuan asked with furrowed brows, looking rather anxious.
Su Mo laughed and said casually, “Relax! I have a way to get out of here!”
Hong Qingxuan’s eyes glinted when she heard this and she asked, “How are you going to do it?”
Su Mo’s brows twitched upwards. He could sense that Hong Qingxuan was slightly different from before.
Hong Qingxuan used to trust him a lot. She would not ask any questions if he said that they would be able to get out.
But now, she was anxious to know how he would get out of the Mist Mountains!
