Chapter 1055: Devil Abyss
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo left from the Xuan Sect and headed west.
He couldn’t return to the Firmament Palace until he found the other Spiritual Sword.
Once he went back, the Firmament Palace would go public.
Su Mo rode his Spiritual Sword, leg-crossed. He separated one thread of his focus to drive the Spiritual Sword and concentrated the rest on consolidating his cultivation.
Five days later, Su Mo felt he got closer to his Spiritual Sword. There was only one day’s journey left.
Su Mo ended his practice and sped up his advance.
As he advanced, Su Mo noticed the land below was becoming more and more desolate, the earth chapped, vegetation withered, and vitality absent.
Moreover, he hadn’t seen any city for tens of thousands of li.
“What’s going on?”
Su Mo was confused, wondering why this place was so barren.
However, Su Mo didn’t have time to look into it. His priority was to find the Natal Spiritual Sword.
After flying for another half a day, Su Mo was completely surprised.
The land he passed had nothing growing, desolate and barren like a desert.
At that time, he was already very close to his Natal Spiritual Sword. Probably under five hundred thousand li.
Su Mo didn’t stop until a long time later.
There was a huge abyss under him.
The entrance to the abyss was oval with a radius of over ten thousand zhang. Inside it appeared dark and bottomless.
Moreover, the abyss was filled with dark, brutal, and bloody smell, giving the region of one thousand li in radius an eerie feeling.
“Could this be the Devil Abyss, the Netherworld Devil Sect’s base?”
Looking at the abyss below, Su Mo mused until a beam of light flashed in his head. This place did look like the legendary Devil Abyss.
Su Mo looked very serious, his brows knitted tightly.
His Natal Spiritual Sword seemed to be inside this abyss. Someone of the Netherworld Devil Sect was in possession of it.
At this moment, he was able to activate his Natal Spiritual Sword. Just one thought and the Natal Spiritual Sword would come back to him.
Even if the Natal Spiritual Sword was held by an expert at the Martial Royal Realm peak, he could take it back by surprise.
However, Su Mo was in no hurry. He wanted to explore this abyss.
Since he was already at the Devil Abyss, he would like to give it a try to rescue Hong Qingxuan.
Activating the Spiritual Sword would startle the enemy.
After a moment of thought, Su Mo flew directly into the abyss.
He was strong enough to be bold. He had no fear for the Netherworld Devil Sect’s den.
Su Mo was very fast, his body dropping into the abyss like a meteor falling from the sky.
Inside the abyss, Su Mo slowed down, holding his aura.
This abyss seems to have no bottom. Su Mo had already descended ten thousand zhang but he still couldn’t see the bottom.
At ten thousand zhang under ground, it was dark but there was no obstacle for experts like Su Mo.
Su Mo carefully controlled his descend speed until he was 20 thousand zhang underground.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
All of a sudden, air was pierced through and four cold beams charged at Su Mo at high speed.
Su Mo’s body flashed and dodged the four cold beams. Four Natal Spiritual Swords were fired out at once.
Bam, bam, bam!
Four dull sounds came and four men in black fell down.
These were four guards of the Netherworld Devil Sect, watching the entrance to the Devil Abyss in secret.
These four men were no easy target with strength close to the Peak Martial King Realm. However, Su Mo could easily kill them by waving his hands.
The four men’s head was instantly shot open by Su Mo’s Natal Spiritual Sword, dead without an opportunity to cry.
Su Mo took three bodies into the Divine Map at once.
He took the three bodies not for their divine elixir but to keep them from falling to the bottom of the abyss, which might alert the Netherworld Devil Sect.
The last body was held in Su Mo’s hand.
He took a close look at his appearance. His facial muscles wiggled and he transformed into the fourth man.
Su Mo changed his appearance, not exactly like the man in black but very similar.
It would be safer if he entered the Devil Abyss like this.
Su Mo then took off the man’s black robe and put it on before putting his body into the Divine Map.
Su Mo resumed his descend carefully.
This abyss seemed to have no bottom. Su Mo had already descended fifty thousand zhang but he still couldn’t see the bottom.
Fortunately, he didn’t encounter any more attack.
Su Mo continued to descend and finally saw the bottom when he was 70 thousand zhang underground.
He didn’t rush to land but used his spiritual consciousness to look around. He stepped his feet on the ground when he was certain it was safe.
Su Mo looked around and discovered a very large underground world.
This underground world was massive. He used his Ghostly Magic Sight Martial Soul but still couldn’t see the end of it.
He glanced across the mountains and waters, and many grotesque black vegetation and trees.
However, this underground world was not dark at all. Actually the sight was very good.
From one thousand zhang above the bottom, the rock wall stretched up extensively with one legendary luminous pearl inserted every one hundred zhang. This underground world was illuminated brightly.
Su Mo observed carefully with the Ghostly Magic Sight Martial Soul but didn’t see anyone from the Netherworld Devil Sect.
After a while, Su Mo flew away.
He didn’t fly up very high so members of the Netherworld Devil Sect wouldn’t spot him. He flew low to investigate.
After just over one thousand li, Su Mo suddenly came to a stop and hid under a huge bouquet of flowers behind a small hill.
Soon after, a unit of about ten men in black flew by.
“It must be a unit on patrol. This Netherworld Devil Sect is pretty well guarded!”
Su Mo muttered to himself as he watched the men in black looking around while flying.
“I wonder where Qingxuan is kept…”
Su Mo heaved a sigh. He wanted to continue when the patrol unit flew away.
All of a sudden, a sense of danger hit all over Su Mo’s body.
