Chapter 1558: Demon Head Mountain
The group of eight Empty Sky Sect disciples were not weak. The leader of the group was almost as strong as Yang Tianwei, while the other people were Rank 2 or 3 Martial Honorables.
The combined attacks of the eight people was incredibly strong. Back-waves from the attack caused the Empty Space a kilometer away to crumble. Even the ground below started to shake violently.
Su Mo’s eyes were cold as he saw the incoming attacks from the eight people. In his eyes, these eight people were dead meat.
In the next moment, Su Mo shot up into the heavens.
He easily dodged the attacks from the eight people and immediately activated the Invisible Fighting Soul.
Just as the eight disciples were about to launch their second wave of attacks, they were stunned.
Su Mo had suddenly disappeared and they had to activate their spiritual senses to sense where Su Mo was.
“Where is he?”
“How did he suddenly disappear!”
The eight people started to exchange looks as their faces darkened. This Su Mo had so many tricks up his sleeve!
They had managed to find him after much difficulty, but Su Mo had still escaped!
“Did we let him escape again?” The leading young man questioned with a dark face.
“Senior Zhao, what do we do?” Another disciple asked the leader.
“What else are we to do? Continue finding him!”
The young man barked angrily. However, the moment his words fell, the empty space vibrated and a fountain of blood shot out of the young man’s head.
A shocking sight appeared in front of the remaining seven people as they witnessed the grotesque body of the young man being split into two.
The other seven people screamed out in terror as they wore dumbfounded looks on their faces.
“All of you have to die!” Su Mo appeared beside the leader’s corpse as he glowered in a cold voice.
The other seven disciples turned pale with fright and they desperately tried to run away.
Senior Zhao was the strongest in the group and he had been instantly killed. The rest of the 7 people had no guts to remain at that place.
Su Mo released his Devouring Fighting Soul as he saw the 7 people attempting to flee. A massive devouring void rose into the air.
The current Devouring Fighting Soul was very terrifying. At almost ten thousand feet long, it was like a large black hole that sucked everything towards it.
Massive devouring power rolled out from the Devouring Fighting Soul and immediately surrounded the group of Empty Sky Sect disicples.
In an instant, the seven Empty Sky Sect disciples’ bodies flew uncontrollably towards the devouring void.
The seven people started to scream in terror. They had no clue what they were facing and they desperately tried to struggle.
However, despite their struggles and desperation, they were unable to overcome the devouring power pulling them backward.
In the blink of an eye, all of them were sucked into the devouring void as they disappeared without a trace.
The leader’s corpse was also devoured by the Devouring Fighting Soul.
A few moments later, Su Mo released a mental thought and bright light glowed from the devouring void. Several items flew out and landed before Su Mo.
Among these items were eight storage rings, three swords, two long sabres, a spear, two sets of gloves and three armors etc.
These were all items that belonged to the eight Empty Sky Sect disciples. Since they were high grade items, the Devouring Fighting Soul could not refine them.
The eight Empty Sky Sect disciples had been crushed and transformed into a thick layer of vital essence that entered Su Mo’s body.
Su Mo kept all the spoils that he had obtained and slowly lowered himself. As he sat down, he refined the vital essence that entered his body.
Although his cultivation rank was not stable enough, he was still in the early stages of the Rank 2 Martial Honorable Realm and it was possible to increase his cultivation subtly.
As he rapidly cultivated, Su Mo’s cultivation rank quickly increased.
Around half an hour later, the vital essence of the 8 Empty Sky Sect disciples was all refined by Su Mo. However, his cultivation rank had only reached the later stages of the Rank 2 Martial Honorable Realm.
With that, Su Mo retrieved his Devouring Fighting Soul and took off.
He needed to continue finding the Ancient Demon’s Heart. That was his most important task.
Su Mo’s body flew at the speed of lighting and he immediately travelled a kilometer. Hovering in mid air, his eyes scanned the sights below him unstoppably.
A short moment later, a massive mountain peak appeared in front of him. At about ten thousand feet high, it was significantly bigger than the rest of the mountain peaks.
“This is…!” Su Mo’s eyes immediately narrowed. The mountain peak in front of him appeared strange. It was in the shape of a skull.
“This is really a skull!”
As he neared the massive mountain peak, Su Mo’s heart jumped in surprise. The mountain peak in front of him looked exactly like a skull.
From one side of the mountain, five black colored holes could clearly be seen. They were holes for eyes, nostrils and a mouth.
The side where the five holes had appeared was obviously the front of the skull.
Su Mo lowered himself in front of the mountain. A large hole was in front of him. it was like a large mouth that was agape and it appeared ominous.
As Su Mo raised his head to look at the top of the mountain peak, he felt an invisible force crushing it. The force was very strong and Su Mo could feel it in the depths of his heart.
It was so crushing that Su Mo had difficulty breathing.
Shoosh shoosh shoosh!
Right at that moment, three shadows flew past and landed on the mountain.
These were three disciples of the Black Flame Tribe. The three threw a side glance at Su Mo and then dashed straight into the hole in the mountain without hesitation.
“Hm?” Su Mo was shocked upon seeing this scene. The three people dashed into the ominous looking mountain without a second thought. Could there be some treasure in the mountain?
Su Mo fell silent. There could be some treasures in the mountain but there definitely wasn’t an Ancient Demon’s Heart in it.
If he entered the mountain, he would be wasting valuable time.
At that point, Su Mo was slightly hesitant, as he was conflicted about entering the mountain.
“It shouldn’t take very long!”
After a while, Su Mo decided that he wouldl take a look around. If there was a treasure in the mountain, that would be good news. If there wasn’t, he would leave immediately.
With that, Su Mo’s body flashed and he instantly rushed into the hole, entering the inner portion of the mountain.
Around ten kilometers away, 8 Empty Sky Sect disciples landed on a mountain.
Li Hentian floated in mid air, his face as dark as water. There were 20 other Empty Sky Sect disciples with him, including Yang Tiancheng.
“Senior Li, there is a light Blood Qi in the air. It seems to be Senior Zhao and his group!” Yang Tiancheng’s face was solemn as he spoke.
“Senior Zhao and his group may not have the ability to defeat Su Mo but they should have been able to escape right?” Another disciple said.
“There isn’t a lot of battle scars here. They are probably not dead!” Yet another disciple voiced his thoughts.
Li Hentian’s face slowly relaxed upon hearing the crowd’s words. However, his heart was still shriveled. The group of Empty Sky Sect disciples with Senior Zhao were probably in a dangerous situation.
Su Mo was exceptionally strong. If Li Hentian didn’t have the Seven-colored Glazed Pagoda, he might not even be able to defeat Su Mo.
“Senior Li, this mountain range is very large. How are we going to find him if we don’t even know how large this mountain range is?” A disciples asked.
Li Hentian frowned. That was a valid problem.
The mountain range was simply too big. Even though they were fast, the moment they split up, they strength would weaken. Even if they found Su Mo, each no wouldn’t be able to stand their ground against Su Mo and they would be killed.
“Su Mo probably came here to find treasures. We can go to a few prominent places with treasures to look!” Yang Tiancheng’s eyes flashed with brilliance as he suggested.
“Tiancheng, where are these prominent places?” Li Hentian asked.
“There are quite a few prominent places in this mountain range. But the three most important places are the Demon Head Mountain, Blood Cloud Lake and the Skeleton Heart Valley. Su Mo could be at one of these three places!” Yang Tiancheng informed Li Hentian.
“Which is the nearest? We will go there to check!” Li Hentian said.
“The Demon Head Mountain is the nearest!” Yang Tiancheng exclaimed. He had studied the Ancient Demons Cemetery previously and he was pretty knowledgeable about the terrain.
“Go! Let’s head to Demon Head Mountain!”
Li Hentian nodded his head and led the group of Empty Sky Sect members towards Demon Head Mountain.
