Chapter 459: Eight-fold Cut
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo, Feng Shaoyu, and the other two walked into a restaurant. Despite its shabbiness and small size, business was booming.
The restaurant’s staff knew Horned-demon Territory well, and many newcomers usually came here to get information about the Plane.
The restaurant had delegated someone to explain the current situation in Horned-demon Territory, such as the locations where horned demons and their armies tended to frequent.
Su Mo and his crew obtained useful information about the Horned-demon Territory while they were in the restaurant.
At present, there were ten hordes of horned demons in Horned-demon Territory, which was divided into ten regions according to the locations of the ten hordes. Each horde had more than 100,000 members and was led by several True Darkness Realm horned demons.
Recently, the ten hordes had sent massive horned demon squads to hunt down Celestialspirit Sect disciples in the Horned-demon Territory. Therefore, the sect had suffered significant casualties of late.
Moments later, Su Mo and his crew left the restaurant and returned to the square.
The square was packed with people, many of whom were teaming up to leave the fort.
“Brothers, I’m from Sky-balancing Peak and at Lv 3 Enlightenment Realm. I’m going to the seventh district to hunt demons. Who wants to join me?” A tall and well-muscled youth asked loudly.
“I’m at the same level as you, let’s go!”
Disciples accepted the youth’s invitation one after another. Not long later, a 12-member team was formed, and the group left the fort.
“Eighth brother, shall we team up?” Su Mo asked Feng Shaoyu.
Feng Shaoyu shook his head and said, “Few people would want to join us!”
Su Mo was surrpised at Feng Shaoyu’s response, but he looked around him and realised that many disciples were looking at them with fear in their eyes.
Su Mo was speechless. Towering Sky Peak disciples were arrogant, but they were extremely unwelcome.
“Let’s go to the 10th district!”
Feng Shaoyu explained that the demons in the 10th district were weaker than those in the other nine districts. In addition, their levels were not high. It was therefore safer for them in the 10th district.
Su Mo and the other three then left the fort and headed to the 10th district.
The land in Horned-demon Territory was brown, and devilish Qi seeped from the earth and suffused the air. It was impossible for normal martial artists to survive here.
Feng Shaoyu appeared to be familiar with this Plane. Keeping at a low elevation, He led the crew to the 10th district at high speed.
The 10th district was not far from the Demon-controlling Fort. They would only need to travel 5,000 kilometers through the ninth district to reach the 10th district.
During the flight, Su Mo spotted several Celestialspirit Sect disciples fighting with horned demons. He finally knew what these demons looked like!
Horned demons were largely humanoid, but there were two major differences between demons and humans.
Firstly, they had a pair of horns on their foreheads.
Secondly, their skin was covered with scales.
The horns were shaped like deer antlers and the length of a little finger. It was said that these horns were extremely precious treasures which could increase the cultivation of a martial artist. Many of the disciples here came for the horns.
The dark purple scales on their bodies were tightly spaced and covered almost 90 percent of their bodies, except for their heads.
Su Mo was amazed because he had never imagined the existence of such strange creatures in this world!
Let’s consider it as a human sub-species for the moment!
They traveled extremely fast and arrived at the 10th district in two hours.
They halted above a piece of wilderness. It was completely silent and there were no signs of any humans. There was nothing but wild grass beneath them.
“Now let’s move full speed ahead! Kill every weak demon in sight!” Feng Shaoyu said coldly.
The crew nodded and continued flying at low elevation to search for the demons.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Explosions sounded from afar and reached their ears.
“Could it be our fellows fighting the demons?” Yun Fei asked.
Feng Shaoyu hesitated and said, “Let’s have a look then!”
The four of them flew toward the source of the noise.
Seconds later, they spotted three disciples several kilometers away, who were surrounded by a dozen demons.
The disciples, comprised of one male and two females, were all at Lv 5 Enlightenment Realm. The demons they faced were stronger, as five of them were at Lv 5 Enlightenment Realm while the rest were Lv 4.
The disciples had sustained injuries and were dripping with blood. Their breaths were shallow. They were just barely holding back the demons’ attack. They would be killed if the fight continued.
“They seem to be Dark Sky Peak disciples!” Yun Fei said in surprise.
“I’ll help them since they’re from Dark Sky Peak. Wait for me here, I’ll go slay the demons!”
Feng Shaoyu said this hurriedly as he dashed toward the demons.
Hearing Feng Shaoyu’s parting words, Su Mo raised his eyebrows. “It seems like the reticent eighth brother is also powerful. He isn’t worried about facing Lv 5 Enlightenment Realm demons even though he is just at Lv 4 Enlightenment Realm!”
Su Mo and the other two waited there to see what Feng Shaoyu would do.
The demons had noticed the arrival of Su Mo’s crew. The middle-aged leader at Lv 5 Enlightenment Realm launched a ferocious attack on the three disciples.
“You Celestialspirit Sect members, die!”
With that battle cry, black fist radiance shot from his scale-covered hands toward the blue-clothed woman, with a force akin to that of two meteorites falling to earth.
Being seriously injured, the woman could not block the powerful attack. She was knocked backward, and blood spurted out of her mouth!
The leader dealt a killing blow to the woman.
The other two were frightened, but it was too late to save her.
“You want to kill people in front of me?”
Feng Shaoyu was 2,500 meters away and wielded his golden long-saber which glowed with terrifying saber Qi.
This strike was shockingly imposing. The saber Qi was thousands of meters long and carried with it a force that could demolish anything.
Su Mo’s eyes narrowed. He was surprised that the eighth brother had the strength to fight an opponent who was two levels higher than him with ease. Towering Sky Peak indeed had no mediocre disciples!
Ninth brother Yun Fei had to be similarly powerful!
