Chapter 1491: Wait A Moment
Translator: Larbre Studio Editor: Larbre Studio
Star Cangyuan was located in the north of the galaxy. It was a territory of demons where Ghost Qi filled the entire barren star.
On a desolated land there was a jet-black Demon Domain. The entrance to this Demon Domain was large. With an area about 500 meters wide, the entire Demon Domain seemed to have been an area where the ground had caved in to reveal a hole that led to hell.
Boundless Ghost Qi seeped out of the Demon Domain and the entire place was filled with a deathly aura.
Demonic creatures would occasionally escape from the Demonic Domain and create havoc on Star Cangyuan. These demonic creatures were of various types and sizes, but they were typically large-sized creatures that carried a terrifying aura with them.
Numerous martial artists waited at the Demon Domain and tirelessly slaughtered the demonic creatures.
Most of these martial artists were Martial Emperors, but there were also quite a number of them who were Martial Honorables.
A streak of light shot through the sky and, as it neared the ground, a clean looking young man wearing a green robe appeared.
The green robe young man was Su Mo. It had taken 6 months of time but he had finally arrived at the Demon Domain.
Looking at the scene below him, Su Mo took a deep breath. The size of this Demon Domain far exceeded his expectations. The Demon Domain before him was a completely different level compared to the Devil Abyss at the Netherworld Devil Sect.
Right at that moment, a demonic creature roared up towards the sky.
This demonic creature was about three feet tall and its entire body was as black as ink. With a head and two limbs, sharp teeth lined its mouth and razor-sharp spikes grew out of its back.
These spikes were made of bones and were incredibly special as they radiated brilliant lights.
Su Mo’s eyes sparkled upon seeing the creature. The bone spikes on this demonic creature were what he had to acquire to meet his mission’s objectives.
According to the explanation on the mission board, these bone spikes were highly valued. The lowest level bone spikes could fetch a few hundred Lower Spiritual Crystals while the upper level bone spikes could be exchanged for around ten Medium Spiritual Crystals.
Right at that moment, a tall, young man wearing a white robe dashed towards the demonic creature. The young man was at the peak of the Rank 9 Martial Emperor and he was strong. Killing the demonic creature in a single strike, the young man proceeded to put the corpse of the demonic creature into his storage ring.
Su Mo scanned through the Demon Domain upon seeing this scene and he frowned unconsciously. Before him, around three to four hundred martial artists were standing in the four corners of the Demon Domain.
These martial artists were obviously there to hunt demonic creatures. But the fact that there were so many hunters and a limit to the number of demonic creatures in the area meant that there was an obvious strain on what was available for each person!
With a heavy sigh, Su Mo slowly lowered himself to the ground and stood about ten meters away from the center of the Demon Domain.
“Isn’t that Su Mo?”
“What? He is the monstrous genius of the True Path Sect, Su Mo?”
“He actually came to the Demon Domain?”
Many people around the four corners of the Demon Domain were surprised to see Su Mo there.
The majority of these people were from the seven superpowers and they recognised Su Mo from seeing him at the fight meet at Sun Moon Tribe previously.
Among the crowd was Lyu Gang and the moment he saw Su Mo, he jumped in surprise. Then, a dark look crossed his face.
A few moments later, Lyu Gang’s body twitched and he flew towards Su Mo.
“Su Mo!” Lyu Gang called out to Su Mo once he was flying beside him.
“You are also here?” Su Mo was slightly surprised upon seeing Lyu Gang. He had not thought he would actually meet Lyu Gang there.
“I am here to earn some resources!” Lyu Gang lightly laughed. He was indeed there to earn some Spiritual Crystals. Many other missions could also earn him rewards. However they were typically missions that required him to switch to another location upon completing it. The Demon Domain mission was a long-term mission that he could earn a lot of resources from. Hence, he often undertook the mission.
However, since Lyu Gang had offended Su Mo previously he was visibly nervous, talking to Su Mo with an awkward look on his face.
“Mm!” Su Mo nodded his head without speaking further. Those who came to this Demon Domain were naturally there to earn Spiritual Crystals.
Lyu Gang saw that Su Mo wasn’t speaking and hesitantly said, “That… Su Mo, I was wrong previously. I hope you don’t take that incident to heart.
Su Mo stared at Lyu Gang upon hearing his stammers. Su Mo knew that Lyu Gang was apologising for his words the previous time.
Lyu Gang was referring to the conflict between himself and Su Mo when he had said some slander about Qing Xuan in the Inner Sect Hall.
“Just don’t talk anymore nonsense!” Su Mo lightly said. The fact that Su Mo didn’t kill Lyu Gang was already him being gracious.
Otherwise, Su Mo would definitely not let the person off if they had said any bad things about Qing Xuan.
“Yes! Yes! I was wrong the previous time, I won’t do it again in the future!” Lyu Gang quickly understood as he felt the weight in his heart release.
Lyu Gang was afraid that Su Mo hated him. After all, with the strength that Su Mo displayed, Lyu Gang would not survive if Su Mo wanted to take his revenge.
Right at that moment, another two demonic creatures rushed out of the Demon Domain. The Ghost Force carried by the two demonic creatures was horrifying. Their auras were strong and they were far more powerful than any demonic creature before them.
Looking at the two creatures, Su Mo’s eyes flashed and he rushed forward to kill the two demonic creatures.
“Su Mo, wait a moment!”
Right at that point, Lyu Gang suddenly stretched his hand forward and held Su Mo back.
“What’s wrong?” Su Mo furrowed his brows and asked, confused. He didn’t understand why Lyu Gang stopped him.
“Su Mo, those two demonic creatures belong to the Empty Sky Sect disciples, we are not allowed to kill them!” Lyu Gang explained.
“Empty Sky Sect disciples’?”
Su Mo was perplexed and he continued to ask, “aren’t the demonic creatures in this Demon Domain free to be killed by anyone? Why would they belong to the Empty Sky Sect disciples?”
“This place is under the control of the Empty Sky Sect disciples. We can only start killing the demonic creatures once the Empty Sky Sect disciples have finished their hunts!” Lyu Gang said.
“Than how long are the Empty Sky Sect disciples going to continue hunting for?”
Su Mo’s face immediately fell upon hearing Lyu Gang’s explanation. There were actually rules for hunting? The situation made Su Mo speechless.
No wonder! No wonder no one had rushed forward to kill the demonic creatures when they had appeared just now. It was because of this reason.
“I am not sure. They may finish up quickly or we might have to wait another three to five days!” Lu Gang shook his head dejectedly.
Lyu Gang was already used to such scenarios. After all, the Empty Sky Sect disciples were incredibly strong and the disciples of the other superpowers could not compete with them.
Just as Su Mo and Lyu Gang were engaged in their conversation, they saw two young men fly out from a crowd of 20 martial artists. Then, the two martial artists began to fight against the demonic creatures.
The two young men were both Rank 1 Martial Honorables and they were reasonably strong. Every attack and strike they gave out shook the skies and many people stepped backwards to avoid the back-wave of forces from the battle.
However, the two demonic creatures were also strong, and it was hard to determine which party was stronger. The two young men were not able to kill the demonic creatures quickly.
“These two are disciples of the Empty Sky Sect. There is a large group of them and also a pro-disciple among them!”
Lyu Gang sighed as he continued, “let’s just wait for a while and not fight against the Empty Sky Sect disciples!”
Su Mo glanced at the group of 20 martial artists. There was quite a number of experts among them and a yellow-robed young man caught his eye. A Rank 2 Martial Honorable with a strong aura and a mysterious vibe.
Su Mo silently nodded his head. Since the situation was like that, he could only wait. Perhaps the group of Empty Sky Sect would leave the area not long later.
He didn’t have any intention to offend the group. After all, as the True Path Sect was among the seven superpowers, there would be pros and cons for him if he offended the others.
