Chapter 1269: How Vicious!
“Brother Su, you have to be extra cautious this time!” Han Ying warned him, her tone suddenly serious.
Since they were still quite a distance away, Su Mo and Nie Qian were unable to feel the strength of the Sorcerer Tribe within Nine Guards City and Heavenly Underworld City. Only Han Ying could sense their strength with her fighting soul.
Su Mo nodded his head and said, “Brother Nie and Sister Han please hide near this mountain. I will find someone to possess!”
“Ok! Please be careful!” Han Ying and Nie Qian cautioned.
With that, Su Mo stretched and flew off.
He was heading away from Heavenly Underworld City.
Possessing someone from the Sorcerer Tribe was no trivial matter, and he could not afford to be caught by a strong Sorcerer Tribe member. If he was near Heavenly Underworld City, he would be easily caught by any expert in the Martial Sage realm.
For that reason, Su Mo reasoned to only take action further away from Heavenly Underworld City.
Su Mo flew across the horizon and was far away from Heavenly Underworld City within a few moments. Then, he slowed down.
He was soon flying in the skies above a mountain range and was preparing to kill some lone Sorcerer Tribe members.
He lowered himself into the dense forest of the mountain and waited in silence.
Anyone who was within three kilometres of him could not escape his eyes.
He must carefully choose the person to possess. First, this chosen person must be a Sorcerer Tribe member who resides in Black Gold City. Secondly, their cultivation can neither be too low nor too high.
He had hidden himself on a route headed towards Black Gold City. There was a high likelihood that passersby on this road would be Sorcerer Tribe members who lived in the City.
Not long after Su Mo hid within the thick forest, two Sorcerer Tribe members flew across the skies above him.
However, he did not attempt to overpower the two as they were only in the Level 8 Martial Royal Realm.
Time ticked by slowly. Su Mo had been waiting for three hours without taking any action.
It’s not that he did not want to attack, but rather he had not came across a suitable target. Some were too strong that he dared not risk exposing himself.
Others had too low a cultivation and were not suitable to possess.
He occasionally identified suitable targets, but they always seemed to be travelling in big groups and not individually. All the more reason he could not attack.
Su Mo couldn’t help but sigh; trying to possess someone is a difficult endeavor.
An ear piercing sound ripped through the air.
Su Mo quickly raised his head. Over a kilometer away flew a tall, young Sorcerer Tribe member.
This young man was heading directly towards Black Gold City.
Su Mo’s eyes twinkled with satisfaction. The man was a Level 1 Martial Emperor. Although his cultivation was slightly low, it was still sufficient.
He locked eyes on the man and quickly raised his Dark Force to its peak potential in preparation to capture the man.
In just a moment, the Sorcerer tribe member was above the mountain range, only several hundred meters away from Su Mo.
The young man was not very vigilant, but he also had good reason to travel unguarded. This place was relatively near Heavenly Underworld City and Black Gold City, a core area of the Sorcerer Tribe. Therefore, if one was a member, this would normally be quite a safe place.
Su Mo attacked instantly, stretching his hand forward and unleashing a palm of Dark Force directly at the young man in an attempt to capture him.
At the same time, Su Mo also released his Devouring Fighting Soul straight at the man.
“Who?” The tall young man shouted, instantly turning pale with fright. However, faced with Su Mo’s palm Dark force, he had no chance to fight back.
The strength of the Devouring Fighting Soul was incredibly strong. Even Zhao Cheng and Guo Jian Qing, who were both a Level 4 Martial Emperors, struggled against its power. Needless to say, a Level 1 Martial Emperor could hardly hope to withstand such an attack.
Although Su Mo did not employ the Devouring Fighting Soul to its full extent, its effect was nonetheless terrifying.
In less than a second, the young man was captured and dragged towards Su Mo.
“You, lowly person, you actually tried to sneak an attack on me, seeking your own death!” The young man spat at Su Mo, realizing the insignificance of his attacker. He had not imagined that such a regular person, one was not even in the Sorcerer Tribe, would dare to do such a thing.
“Death is right at your doorstep and yet you remain so arrogant!” Su Mo laughed coldly and placed his hand directly on the young man’s skull.
The young man shivered violently at Su Mo’s touch, his face instantly lifeless.
Seeking Soul Skill!
Su Mo used the Seeking Soul Skill to examine his victim’s memories. He could not simply possess this man, he first had to understand his identity clearly before possession.
A while later, Su Mo released his hand. The young man fell lifelessly to the ground, the whites of his eyes exposed and his face pale.
Su Mo sighed in frustration. This man was not from Black Gold City, but from another called Guard Black Golden city.
If he were to possess this man, he might have the identity of a member of the Sorcerer Tribe, but it would still be difficult for him once he was in Black Gold City.
Muttering to himself, Su Mo decided to abandon possessing this man. He opted instead to keep the man’s storage ring, and then released some fire affiliated Dark Force in his hand and reduced the man to ashes.
Although the possession was unsuccessful, examining the man’s his memories had enabled Su Mo to gain a greater understanding of the Heavenly Sorcerer Star Branch.
Among the Heavenly Sorcerer Star Branch, the most powerful man was the Branch head. Following him were four other martial artists, all of whom were in the Martial Sage Realm.
From the man’s memories, Su Mo also discovered that Wu Xian was actually the Grand Priest’s great-granddaughter and therefore enjoyed a very high status.
A year before, after the Firmament World test, Wu Xian had been captured and the Sorcerer Tribe lost 900 geniuses. The entire Heavenly Underworld Sorcerer Tribe was disrupted by this event.
In order to trace Su Mo and Qin Bu Si’s whereabouts, the Sorcerer Tribe mobilized a great number of experts.
Additionally, since Steward Chai had helped Su Mo, the Heavenly Underworld Sorcerer tribe had nearly started a war with Cangyun sect.
Cangyun sect, also known as Cangyun Sacred sect, is one of the 13 superpowers at Shenwu academy.
Furthermore, Steward Chai was not only the master at the Craftsmen guild, but he also served as the elder of Cangyun Sacred sect.
Su Mo was overcome with emotions. Although he had not personally experienced these memories, he imagined that Steward Chai must have suffered through many troubles for letting him escape.
Also, judging from the Sorcerer Tribe’s power, they would soon be able to investigate up to Shenwu academy.
After all, Cangyun Sacred sect was one of the 13 superpowers behind Shenwu Academy, and Steward Chai was previously a disciple of Shenwu Academy. The Sorcerer Tribe was sure to follow this lead.
This was not surprising to Su Mo, for he knew from the start that the Sorcerer Tribe would never allow him to escape.
Yet, what made him incredibly angry was that all the people of Cangxiong world were slaughtered for this reason.
Six months ago, the Grand Priest of the Sorcerer Tribe commanded several high levelled martial artists in the Martial honoured realm to destroy the Cangxiong world.
It was completely destroyed; every life on the small world was reduced to ashes.
“How vicious!” Gritting his fists tightly, Su Mo’s face darkened. Over a hundred billion people living in Cangxiong world were killed because of him.
He knew that in the eyes of the Sorcerer Tribe, the people on Cangxiong world were lowly beings whose lives were worth nothing more than those of ants.
Su Mo regained his composure a short while later. He would seek revenge on their behalf, of this he was certain. But he had to complete the task at hand first.
Su Mo hid himself again in the forest and continued waiting.
