Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo sighed. He did not think too much of it and only thought that Hong Qingxuan was worried that they might not be able to leave the Mist Mountains.
“The mist of the Mist Mountains warps the space here. As long as we find the tracks that demark the warps…!”
Su Mo slowly explained the situation on the Mist Mountains to Hong Qingxuan in detail.
However, it was unlikely that they could leave the mountains even if they knew of its tricks but did not have a Martial Soul like the Ghostly Magic Sight.
Hong Qingxuan relaxed after hearing Su Mo’s explanation, and a smile appeared on her face.
“Brother Su Mo, I thought I’d never see you again!”
Hong Qingxuan’s eyes welled up with tears, looking really pitiful. Then, she suddenly stepped forward and launched herself into Su Mo’s embrace.
“It’s alright now. This will never happen again!” Su Mo patted her back lightly and comforted her.
Then, something strange happened right at that moment. Su Mo felt an intense pain coming from his waist. There was a cold force that seemed as if a snake had slithered into his body.
Su Mo yelped in pain. He pushed Hong Qingxuan away roughly and backed away quickly.
Su Mo looked at Hong Qingxuan incredulously, his face filled with disbelief. A black dagger protruded from his waist.
The dagger had buried completely in his body, leaving only the hilt outside of it.
Su Mo had never imagined that Hong Qingxuan would do this to him. This was completely beyond his expectations.
“Hurmph, I’m not your mistress!”
Hong Qingxuan huffed coldly, the pitiful look on her face had long disappeared, leaving behind a sinister smile.
Then, Hong Qingxuan’s face distorted and changed, as did her body, which plumped up.
The slender figure and innocent face of Hong Qingxuan turned into a voluptuous and seductive young woman in the blink of an eye.
“Who are you?” Su Mo bellowed, his eyes burned with rage.
He had never expected that he would be cheated!
He had not only failed to save Hong Qingxuan, but he had also even handed over Wu Shan. He had lost completely.
Furthermore, he had even been injured!
Su Mo had wanted to do something to Su Mo but was worried that the Netherworld Devil Sect would find out and ruin his plans and had so given up.
But the Netherworld Devil Sect was more vicious than him. They had no intentions of exchanging Hong Qingxuan for Wu Shan.
Su Mo was filled with regrets but it was too late for it!
“Who I am isn’t important. What’s important is that you’re going to die!”
The lady laughed and said, “You have been poisoned by the lethal ‘Netherworld Poison Water’. You won’t live past a couple of days no matter how powerful you are!”
The woman said with confidence. The Netherworld Poison Water was a poison of the Netherworld Devil Sect. Martial artists below the Martial Royal Realm would die if they touched it. Experts below the Lower Martial Royal Realm would like in 24 hours while Mid Level Martial Royal Realm experts could hang on for half a month.
Su Mo might be powerful, but she thought that he would only last three to five days at best.
Most importantly, there was no antidote to this poison. Those who have been poisoned were doomed to die.
It was tremendously difficult to make this kind of poison and it was rare even in the Netherworld Devil Sect. They had used this against Su Mo, showing how determined they were to kill him.
“The Netherworld Poison Water?”
Su Mo’s expression changed when he heard that. He could feel an odd aura coming from the wound at his waist. The aura was extremely sinister and burrowed into the different parts of his body unceasingly.
Su Mo immediately pulled out the dagger at his waist and then, pointed his fingers, using the Dark Force to seal his wound.
Not only that, the Dark Force in his body surged, a thick Dark Force poured forth from his elixir field and resisted the sinister aura.
The sinister aura was the toxins of the Netherworld poison.
However, this toxin was extremely powerful and the Dark Force seemed unable to block its encroachment. The sinister aura gradually spread throughout Su Mo’s body.
Su Mo’s wound started to fester in a matter of seconds.
“Hehe! There’s no need to struggle, it’s useless!”
She shook her head and said with a smile, “To tell the truth, I can’t really bear to kill a genius like you!”
She felt a little regretful. It was indeed a pity to kill such a rare genius like Su Mo.
However, only Su Mo’s ignorance for the current state of affairs could be blamed, for he had opposed the Netherworld Devil Sect.
However, being able to kill Su Mo was something to be proud of.
The only thing that annoyed her was that Su Mo had brought her into the Mist Mountains, and she did not know if she could leave it.
Luckily, Su Mo had told her the secrets of the Mist Mountains.
The murderous intent in Su Mo’s eyes glinted. He immediately attacked while he still had strength. He pointed his finger, using it as a sword, and plunged it at the woman.
The woman had revealed her cultivation state earlier when she attacked Su Mo. She was only a Lv 3 Martial Royal Realm expert and was no match for Su Mo.
However, she was prepared. She quickly retreated into the endless mist and disappeared when Su Mo lashed out.
Su Mo’s expression darkened as he looked in the direction where she had disappeared into.
He had truly been tricked this time. He had not only managed to save Hong Qingxuan but also put himself in danger.
Furthermore, he had not managed to keep his two Natal Spiritual Sword. He had lost contact with them after retreating into the Mist Mountains.
“No, I have to hurry and return to the Firmament Palace!”
Su Mo frowned tightly. The toxicity of the poison was very high. He did not know how long he could withstand it for.
But he had to return to the Firmament Palace for safety reasons.
Otherwise, he would die if he could not withstand the toxins.
There was hope for him to neutralize the poison only if he returned to the Firmament Palace.
Mo’s figure shimmered as he headed for the Divine Martial Country without hesitation. He had to bring the Firmament Sect with him since he was going to return to the Firmament Palace.
As for the woman who had walked into the Mist Mountains, it was unlikely that she would be able to leave it.
Even if she knew of the secrets of the Mist Mountains, she would not be able to leave it without aMartial Soul that was similar to the Ghostly Magic Sight.
Su Mo did not believe that the woman also had a Martial Soul like that. There were no such coincidences in the world.
Su Mo was very familiar with the Mist Mountains. He returned to the Divine Martial Country in less than a day.
A large area of Su Mo’s waist had started to fester, emitting a pungent aura. The festering had begun throughout his body and the Dark Force was unable to withstand it.
Su Mo flew into the City Governor’s mansion in the Great Martial City. He looked at the mansion below and immediately shouted, “Everyone from the Firmament Sect, gather up. We will leave the Mist Mountains in an hour.”
His voice reverberated through the earth, traveling several thousand miles.
