Chapter 1090: Sky-ghost Protection
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
In the valley,
Lu Gui was sitting cross-legged on a big stone, recovering from his injuries.
Lu Gui, the name of an expert in Netherworld Devil Sect, was one of the seven old heads in the Netherworld Devil Sect.
The old head ranked higher than the other four hall masters in the Netherworld Devil Sect.
“This is all not worth the loss!” Lu Gui sighed while curing himself.
They had tried to kill Su Mo with great confidence but did not make it. Instead, seven of them were injured.
Su Mo had fully grown up. Even if the Sect Master did it himself, he might not have been able to kill Su Mo easily!
“I wonder what’s going on with the others?” Lu Gui was lost in thought, preparing to communicate with the others.
Just then, ten thousands of miles away, a dazzling golden light appeared in the sky.
It disappeared just as quickly as it came.
“Hmm? What happened?” Lu Gui wondered in great surprise. Then he flew in the direction of the golden light.
Curiosity had gotten the better of him, and he merely wanted to find out what was happening in the mountains.
Lu Gui arrived at the place where the golden light had appeared in a split second.
He looked around but did not find anything out of the ordinary.
Then Lu Gui’s Spiritual Consciousness emerged to search the area carefully.
Soon, he found a black tiger with a picture scroll in its mouth, running away in the distance.
“What is that picture scroll?” Lu Gui wondered. “Is it a treasure?”
This was not a strange occurrence. There were many mountains and relics in the Firmament World. Some martial artists leave their belongings behind as treasure after death.
This black tiger was lucky to be able to find this picture scroll in the mountains.
Lu Gui rushed toward the black tiger quickly without any hesitation, killing it in one martial move.
The picture scroll fell from the tiger’s mouth to the ground after it died.
“What kind of treasure is this?” Lu Gui walked forward, picked up the picture scroll and sized it up.
It was an antique and simple picture scroll. The material was gray and white and was over half a meter long when unfolded.
On the picture scroll was a landscape painting with mountains, rivers and grass fields.
“A spatial treasure?” Lu Gui took a closer look and said. His eyes shone brightly at the realisation that the picture scroll was filled with a strong spatial power.“Isn’t this a spatial treasure?”
“Interesting!” Lu Gui said with a smile. “I managed to procure a spatial treasure just by curing wounds on a mountain. Lucky me!”
Just as Lu Gui was about to take a better look inside the picture scroll, a turn of events occurred.
The space in front of Lu Gui convulsed abruptly and a harsh light suddenly flashed from the picture scroll, stabbing at his chest.
“What?” Lu Gui’s breath was instantly taken away because he had not sensed any danger when he picked up the picture scroll.
This cold light was unrivalled in stregnth and speed. What’s more, it appeared so suddenly and was less than three meters away from him that he had no time to escape.
With the sound of a sword piercing through flesh and blood, the cold light instantly stabbed at Lu Gui’s chest. The raging Dark Force rushed into his body like sharp knives.
With a shrill scream, Lu Gui threw the picture scroll away and retreated rapidly.
“Su Mo!” Lu Gui fixed his gaze on the figure of a young man who had appeared. It was Su Mo.
“You will definitely die!” Su Mo put away the Divine Map. He watched Lu Gui with a cold expression. He held the Billion Demonic Sword in his hands which shone with sanguine light.
Su Mo had chosen to use the Billion Demonic Sword in order to incur maximum damage on the expert.
Not only was the expert seriously injured from that hit, but the Billion Demonic Sword had also absorbed eighty percent of his blood essence.
Even the martial artist at Lv 8 Martial Royal Realm would be very weak upon losing eighty percent of his blood essence.
“I can’t believe you still caught up!” Lu Gui’s face paled. He did not expect Su Mo to attack him in that way.
Sword Qi crumbled his internal organs and a large number of meridians. It also sucked his internal blood essence.
While his attack did not kill the expert, it had still seriously wounded him, causing his strength drop to the freezing point.
“Go to the hell!” Su Mo could not be bothered to respond. He stepped forward and rushed at Lu Gui like an arrow with his Billion Demonic Sword drawn.
Lu Gui was too scared to put up a fight against Su Mo. He soared up into the sky and fled quickly without hesitation.
Su Mo immediately chased him.
However, Lu Gui was severely injured and his meridians were damaged. He was slow and had nowhere to escape to.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
On Su Mo’s command, his nine Natal Spiritual Swords flew out at Lu Gui. They immediately caught up with him and surrounded him.
“You have no other way out!” Su Mo said with a sneer.
“Damn it!” Lu Gui’s face was livid, the desire to kill evident in his eyes. He planned to fight to the death since he could not escape.
With a shout, Lu Gui made a sudden move and several ghoulish images of his body appeared.
Those phantoms were all malicious ghosts, with each of them more ferocious and gruesome than the other.
Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!
All the malicious ghosts pounced on Su Mo, causing gusts of evil winds with wild shrieks and howls.
“It’s over!” Su Mo shook his head and swung his demonic sword. Those phantoms were immediately annihilated as the sword Qi flashed across the sky.
At the same time, Su Mo commanded the nine Natal Spiritual Swords with his mind, causing them to rush as Lu Gui, intending to kill him instantly.
However, Su Mo had underestimated Lu Gui. After all, he was an expert at Lv 9 Martial Royal Realm. Even if he was badly hurt, he was still able to save his life.
“Sky-ghost protection! ”
Seeing the nine Spiritual Swords coming, Lu Gui shouted loudly. Another malicious ghost appeared beside him.
This malicious ghost was almost over nine meters tall and dark as ink. Its eyes burst out with faint green light.
The malicious ghost defended Lu Gui against the attack of Su Mo’s Spiritual Sword.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
In an instant, nine Natal Spiritual Swords attacked the malicious ghost, but they did not break the ghost’s defense.
It was not because the attack force of the Spiritual Sword was not strong enough, but because the malicious ghost’s body contained a force of distortion and guidance.
The Spiritual Sword was thrown off course and flew at the malicious ghost again once it got close.
The nine Spiritual Swords deviated towards another direction and flashed across the ghost’s body without causing any damage to it.
Su Mo immediately became interested in what he saw. He had never encountered a defense that could defend against such an attack.
