Chapter 1167: The Immortal Bird
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo knew that the lifespan of a Demon was far longer than a Human’s. Yet, after hearing Qin Busi’s words, he still could not help but be shocked.
After all, he had only lived a little more than 20 years. Yet he was able to meet a several-thousand-year-old being!
A few thousand years… such a long time was very terrifying for both Humans and ordinary Demons.
“Sir, you have experienced three major calamities, so you should have a very detailed understanding of our chance to get out!” Su Mo’s eyes shone fiercely. He had survived three major calamities and had not died, so he must know very well how to survive.
“We have a chance but we need to plan carefully!” Qin Busi nodded.
Su Mo’s expression was solemn as he waited for the man to speak.
“After the Trial Testers of the Sorcerer tribe have descended, they will open up a passage from the Firmament World to the outside world. After all of them have come, the passage will close again. Two months later, the passage will open again to lead these Trial Testers away!”
Qin Busi spoke slowly. He paused for a while before continuing. “As long as we can get into the passage, we have a chance to leave the Firmament World!”
Hearing Qin Busi’s words, Su Mo furrowed his brows slightly. Was it this easy? They could leave as long as they could get into the passage?
While Su Mo was feeling confused, Qin Busi’s expression became solemn and he continued. “But Honorables from the Sorcerer tribe will stand guard outside the passage. There are more than one. When a warrior from the Firmament World exits the passage, they will kill them.”
“Honorables?” Su Mo heard him and his heart immediately missed a beat. Fear showed on his face. An Honorable should be a presence above the Martial Emperor Realm. They would be from the Martial Honorables Realm!
Su Mo’s heart sank. With such mythical beings of the Martial Honored Realm standing guard, who could escape?
He was only at Lvl 8 Martial Royal Realm. Even if he broke into the Martial Emperor Realm, he would still find it impossible to block off strikes from these Martial Honorables!
He had thought that no one could kill him given his current strength, even though he might not completely defeat all the Trial Testers.
He had a great desire to escape but after hearing Qin Busi’s words, he was no longer hopeful.
If he could not leave, he would be trapped and would die in the Firmament World. He would never be able to revive Qian Xunyue.
And there was Hong Qingxuan. Su Mo had guessed that since Wu Sen was a descendant of the Sorcerer tribe, it was likely he would take this opportunity to leave the Firmament World.
If he left, Hong Qingxuan would also be taken away.
And if he could not leave, he would not be able to save Hong Qingxuan either!
Su Mo’s expression turned grim and a thought flashed across his mind. After a short while, he gazed at Qin Busi and asked, “Do we still have a chance?”
“Yes!” Qin Busi nodded and said in a low voice, “We can only survive if we make the Martial Honorables afraid to attack us!”
“Afraid to attack us?” Su Mo was confused. How could they make the Martial Honorable Warriors afraid to attack them?
“That’s right! We have to find a powerful Trial Tester and capture him alive. When we leave, we will use him to threaten the Honorables of the Sorcerer tribe!” Qin Busi’s eyes flashed with a brilliant light.
“Is it feasible?” Su Mo felt shocked and confused. After all, Honorables were not common people. How could they be threatened so easily!
“There is no other way! We can only try!”
Qin Busi sighed. Nostalgia appeared in his eyes and he said, “When I was undergoing my first calamity, I charged out of the passage and was instantly stopped by the Honorables. They tried to kill me. During my second calamity, I hid inside a Spacial Device and allowed it to fall into the hands of a Trial Tester. But in the end, the Honorables still discovered me! During my third calamity, I possessed the body of a Trial Tester but was still unable to escape. They saw through me immediately!”Read more chapter on vipnovel.com
Qin Busi’s face showed great loneliness. With his bloodline and his talent, he had ought to be an invaluable presence even in the outer world. This man should be proudly roaming around the universe with his power.
But instead, he had been trapped on the Firmament World for several thousand years. It was a great tragedy!
Su Mo heard him and became silent for a long time. He could feel the man’s loneliness. To try three times and fail was indeed very tragic.
However, how did he survive those three attacks?
Although Qin Busi could see the confusion in Su Mo’s eyes, he did not explain.
“Young friend, you are quite powerful. Join me! We might succeed if we plan carefully!” Qin Busi focused his gaze on Su Mo’s face.
He knew that Su Mo would not reject his offer—although he had just woken up and did not know Su Mo at all.
But he believed that every top warrior in the Firmament World would desire to leave. They all wanted to leave this unbearable cage.
Su Mo gently nodded his head. Of course, he would not refuse co-operating with another person.
Although he did not understand this man, they shared the same goal. With the same goal, they would be able to work together with sincerity.
Su Mo and Qin Busi talked for a long time, discussing the details of the plan.
Every step had to be discussed and every detail had to be debated.
However, the specifics would have to be decided during the calamity. They would have to act as the occasion demanded.
After all, after the Trial Testers had descended, the situation might change instantly and anything could happen.
They were unsure about the Trial Testers, whether someone from the Martial Emperor’s Realm would be among their ranks.
Su Mo also learned from Qin Busi that the Trial Testers were all very powerful. Each was a genius descendant of the Sorcerer tribe.
Each Trial Tester had superior battle skills. If a warrior from the Firmament World faced a Trial Tester from the same realm, they would be killed.
After four hours, Su Mo left Wild Sacred Mountain and returned to the Firmament Palace.
As he flew through the air, Su Mo turned his palm up and a feather appeared. It was a gray feather. Dark light streaked on it and it looked very unusual.
“The Immortal Bird?” Su Mo muttered softly to himself as a light flashed in his eyes.
He had randomly grabbed this feather from a palace corner before he left.
He scrutinized it and discovered that this feather was very similar to those from the Immortal Birds, an ancient legendary beast.
Su Mo had plenty of free time in the last few years. He often took time to read the ancient volumes left behind in the Firmament Palace.
Among them was an introduction to ancient beasts.
According to these records, certain strange and powerful beasts were called “Divine Beasts” in the ancient times, in the Firmament World and outside.
They also mentioned about the Archean Divine Beast Board, with its list of ten thousand powerful beasts. The Immortal Bird was one.
Of course, the Ancient War Elephant and the Eight-winged Drake were also in the list.
However, the Immortal Bird was ranked within the top five hundred—much higher than the Ancient War Elephant and the Eight-winged Drake.
“I should be right!” Su Mo said to himself. Guided by the description on the ancient records, he was almost certain that the feather had belonged to an Immortal Bird.
Qin Busi’s real body was that of an Immortal Bird. However, he was certainly not a pure breed. Nobody knew how pure his bloodline was!
