Chapter 722: All Alone
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Su Mo was secretly alarmed. His mind whirled and he hastily said, “Lil Eight, since this elder holds you in such high regard, you should stay here! We will meet again in the future!”
It was almost impossible to bring Lil Eight with him. If he managed to escape, he could then think of a way to come back for Lil Eight next time.
Lil Eight hissed. She continued to rub her head against Su Mo’s face. Her huge eyes revealed her unwillingness to leave Su Mo.
Their master-servant relationship might have been severed, but she still cared greatly for Su Mo. After all, she had been with Su Mo since birth and they had spent such a long time together.
“Boy, you will never see each other again!” the middle-aged man said coldly. “We are of such noble blood. How could you raise her as a human’s spiritual beast? Damn you!”
Having spoken, the middle-aged man waved his arms and a Qi strength shot toward Su Mo like a sharp sword.
“Oh no!” Su Mo turned pale with fright. The middle-aged man’s Qi strength moved toward him with such incredible speed, he had no time to dodge.
Su Mo was suddenly in great peril.
Lil Eight who had been by his side, suddenly chose this moment to stick her head out to shield Su Mo.
“Lil Eight!” Su Mo yelled. If this Qi strength struck her, she would definitely die!
Just as the Qi strength was about to strike Lil Eight’s head, the middle-aged man moved his hand and drew the Qi strength back.
He had not expected Lil Eight to sacrifice herself to protect Su Mo. After all, they were no longer master and servant.
Lil Eight looked at the middle-aged man angrily, her long tongue flicking in and out.
Lil Eight was thoroughly angered by the middle-aged man’s actions. If not for the fact that he was much too strong, she would have attacked him.
The middle-aged man frowned and his face darkened when he registered her reaction.
“Phew!” Su Mo heaved a sigh of relief. Lil Eight had saved his life.
Su Mo thought for a moment, then he looked at the middle-aged man and said, “Elder, Lil Eight and I are like siblings. If you kill me, Lil Eight will not stay here either.”
Su Mo’s face had hardened, his previous obsequious tone absent from his voice.
“Are you threatening me?” the middle-aged man asked, his eyes cold and emotionless.
“I would not dare to do such a thing. I am simply telling the truth!” Su Mo said as he shook his head. “Lil Eight has lived with me since she was born and her bond with me runs deep. Why would Lil Eight be willing to follow you if you killed me?”
The middle-aged man in black fell silent. A while later, he shook his head reluctantly and said, ” Alright, you have played your part by bringing this little girl here. I shall spare your life! You may leave! ”
Su Mo was delighted to hear that, but he did not show it. He gave the middle-aged man a fist-palm salute and said, “Thank you for your kindness. In this case, I shall not impose on you any longer and I’ll take my leave now!”
Su Mo could not wait to get out of that place. It was much too dangerous there. He would be doomed if the middle-aged man changed his mind again!
Therefore, he immediately made a move to leave.
Su Mo waved his arm and kept the Divine Map into his storage ring.
Then, just as Su Mo was about to walk out when a voice rang out.
“Wait!” the bald man, who had remained silent throughout, suddenly spoke.
Su Mo’s heart sank. Was this bald man after his Divine Map?
“Elder, is there anything I can do for you?” Su Mo said calmly as he stopped and turned to face the bald man.
However, it was obvious that Su Mo’s worries were unfounded. His Spacial Device was precious, but it was not too rare to those two beasts.
Furthermore, since they had already allowed Su Mo to leave, it would be beneath them to rob him.
The bald man frowned as he carefully sized Su Mo up. After a while, he suddenly asked, “Are you cultivating the Archean Dragonesque Elephant Skill?”
The bald man’s original form was an Ancient War Elephant, which was a descendant of the Archean Dragonesque Elephant. He sensed a strange aura from Su Mo, and guessed that Su Mo was cultivating the Archean Dragonesque Elephant Skill.
Su Mo was startled. He did not understand how the bald man could tell that he was cultivating the Archean Dragonesque Elephant Skill.
Was it because the bald man was an Ancient War Elephant and thus could recognize the aura of the Archean Dragonesque Elephant Skill?
Su Mo was not going to admit it. Regardless of the bald man’s intentions, it would be more prudent for it to remain a secret.
“Elder, I don’t know what this Archean Dragonesque Elephant Skill is. However, I have cultivated a Body Refining Skill, known as Elephant’s Strength Skill.” Su Mo said with a puzzled expression.
However, the bald man was not so easily fooled. He shook his head and said, “Whether you admit it or not, I just want to warn you not to embarrass us, the Dragonesque Elephants!”
“Embarrass the Dragonesque Elephants?” Su Mo was bewildered. What did his cultivation of the Archean Dragonesque Elephant skill have anything to do with embarrassing them?
Although the Archean Dragonesque Elephant Skill was created in accordance to the way the Dragonesque Elephants cultivated, it was still a cultivation skill developed by humans for humans. How would it be related to Dragonesque Elephants themselves?
The bald man continued, “The three most powerful Body Refining Skills for the Humans are the Firmament Body Intensification Skill, the Immortal Golden Body Skill, and the Archean Dragonesque Elephant Skill. Once these three skills have found their descendants, their descendants must fight to the death. If you have cultivated Archean Dragonesque Elephant Skill, you better be prepared!”
Su Mo was utterly confused by the bald man’s words. Those who have cultivated these three skills must fight to the death? Why would they do that?
Su Mo did not probe further. He would deal with this later. His top priority was to get out of this place as soon as possible.
“Thanks for the warning. I shall now take my leave!” Su Mo said with a fist-palm salute. He then turned to look at Lil Eight. Lil Eight was also looking at him; reluctance clear in her eyes.
“Lil Eight, we will meet again in the future!” Su Mo said solemnly. Then, he flew out of the palace and disappeared in a blink of an eye.
After Su Mo left, the middle-aged man’s face broke into a smile as he looked at Lil Eight.
“Ha ha! Nice! Your bloodline is even purer than mine!” the middle-aged man said with a chuckle. He had always thought that he was the only remaining descendant of the Eight-winged Drakes throughout the whole Firmament and Continent. It never occurred to him that there could be a tribe member with a purer bloodline.
With such pure bloodline, it might be possible for her to become completely like their ancestors in the future.
“Little girl, from now on, you will stay by my side. I will personally teach you our skills!” the middle-aged man said with a laugh.
After Su Mo left the palace, he flew through the underworld and sped toward the exit.
Su Mo suddenly felt all alone, helpless and lonely.
He didn’t know where Li Feng and Qingxuan were, and now he had even lost Lil Eight.
