Chapter 1089: The Same Method
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo was not worried when he saw the expert of the Netherworld Devil Sect disappear into the river.
Su Mo knew the expert had entered the river to either hide or escape from him.
After all, the river was big enough to hide his aura, which made it difficult for Su Mo to pursue him.
Su Mo immediately sped up towards the river bank in pursuit of the expert.
Su Mo jumped into the river without hesitation after a light laugh.
The river was hundreds of miles in width and was of unknown length as well as about three thousand meters depth.
Su Mo entered the river and found the tracks left by the expert before he arrived at the river bottom.
The expert had been very cautious. Instead of hiding somewhere on the river bed, he had walked quickly away from danger. At that point, he was already 20,000 miles away but had not managed to escape Su Mo’s Martial Soul.
As he was traveling against river currents, his speed was slightly hindered. As a result, the distance between them narrowed significantly.
“It’s no use being cautious!” Su Mo sneered and rapidly chased after him.
The expert did not remain on the river bed for a long time. About two hours later, he swam up to the surface and flew out of the river.
Su Mo followed and saw the expert flying north.
This man was really cautious. By going north he was moving away from the Netherworld Devil Sect. Obviously, he did this to avoid Su Mo.
Su Mo immediately left the river as he saw this and continued his pursuit.
This middle-aged expert from Netherworld Devil Sect was emaciated with a gloomy aura, just like a malicious ghost. He seemed to come from the Ghost Hall.
He did not hurry after getting out of the river. He obviously relaxed a little because he thought Su Mo would not catch up with him.
After all, there were seven of them and he had thought that it was not very likely that he was the one being pursued.
Moreover, he should be completely safe since such a long time passed.
Another two hours later, the expert flew into a mountain and then landed in a valley.
At that moment, Su Mo had already caught up with this expert. In fact, Su Mo had slowed down so as not to be detected.
Because Su Mo was not going to fight hand to hand with him but to see if there was any chance to make a sneak attack. If so, it would be easy yo kill him and get his divine elixir.
Of course, another reason for this was that his Three Secret Techniques had expired. At present, his strength had decreased a little because of his weaker body.
So if Su Mo fighted with him directly, it would be unlikely for him to defeat this expert. He probably had several means to do so since he was at Lv 9 Martial Royal Realm.
Only a sneak attack could make it most possible to kill him.
Su Mo immediately landed in the mountains as well.
Then, he tried his best to control his breathing and stalked into the valley where the expert was in.
After a little while, Su Mo approached the valley.
He didn’t use his spiritual consciousness to scan the area but watched from a distance in case of being discovered by the expert.
In the valley, the expert was sitting cross-legged on a big stone. Obviously, he was taking a few elixirs to cure his wounds.
“Healing?” Su Mo immediately understood. When he broke the Cursed Dark Demon Formation, the seven people of Netherworld Devil Sect had all suffered internal injuries.
Su Mo hid himself amongst thistles and thorns and watched from a distance. He retained his aura to the utmost extent, secretly thinking of the way to sneak up upon the expert.
His own strength was definitely higher than the expert’s but it was also limited. The expert suffered some internal injuries while Su Mo was also a little weak, so the current strength of them might be similar.
“How do I execute a sneak attack?” Su Mo became a little worried. “He is an expert at Lv 9 Martial Royal Realm and must be very perceptive. I will certainly be discovered as soon as I make a move.”
If the expert was desperate to escape, it was difficult for Su Mo to force him to stay.
After thinking for a moment, Su Mo’s eye lit up as he thought of an idea.
The expert had lured him into a trap trap with nonexistent treasures. Thus, he would use the same method to attract the expert.
The Divine Map!
Su Mo planned to attract him with the Divine Map and hid himself in the map before taking the expert by surprise.
“I can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs.” Su Mo thought. Although there would be risks, it was still a method that he was confident would succeed.
Su Mo had once hid himself in the map to ambush the black dragon patriarch and was successful, so he some experience in such plots.
Presently, Su Mo retreated slowly and walked away from this expert.
He went through the mountain forests and found a Lv 4 black tiger demonic beast.
This black tiger, more than 16 meters long, was majestic-looking. He was idling in his own territory without any idea that a human being was 3,000 meters away.
Su Mo cautiously approached the black tiger and hid himself behind a towering old tree.
The black tiger could not find Su Mo at all because of its low level.
“I’m counting on you!” Su Mo looked at the tiger ahead with a smile playing on his lips. Since he wanted the expert to take the bait, he could not throw away the divine map easily.
He would make the expert misunderstand that it was the black tiger who got the Divine Map from somewhere.
Shortly after, Su Mo took out the map as well as an Imperial Long Spear from the storage jade bracelet.
He pointed the Long Spear to the sky and injected a little Gold Property Dark Force. The Long Spear immediately flashed with harsh light and soared straight into the sky.
The harsh light shone in all directions, alerting anyone or any demonic beast within ten thousands of miles.
At the same time, Su Mo threw the Divine Map at the black tiger nearby with his other hand.
With that, Su Mo entered the Divine Map through his mind.
The Divine Map flew to the black tiger in a graceful arc .
The black tiger stared blankly with its brass bell-sized eyes .
It was wandering around when it saw a golden light rushing into the sky. Then it saw another object flying towards him before it had time to repond.
The black tiger had a closer look and found that it was but a harmless unknown object.
The Divine Map fell to the ground in front of the black tiger.
The black tiger sized up the Divine Map, its big eyes full of surprise. Although it did not know what the map was, it could feel its extraordinary aura.
This black tiger was a Lv 4 Demonic Beast after all and his spiritual wisdom was not low.
The tiger sized up the Divine Map, picked it up with its mouth and then sped away.
