Su Mo hurtled out of the underground world.
After he left the cave, he saw that countless of demonic beasts had gathered at the foot of this gigantic mountain.
Many demonic beasts crowded all over a radius of tens of thousands of miles around the gigantic mountain.
There were all kinds of fantastic demonic beasts present, including many low-level demonic beasts at Level 3 or 4 and quite a few stronger Level 6 or 7 beasts.
They were lying on their stomachs, gazing at the gigantic mountain reverently.
The trumpet of the Ancient War Elephant echoed for miles and all who heard the trumpet knew that one of the three overlords of the Barbaric Mountains had been awakened.
Thus, these demonic beasts came to Sacred Mountain to pay their respects.
“Oh my god!”
Su Mo felt his hair stand on end at the majestic sight of so many demonic beasts gathering in one place. Their combined power would be enough to conquer the entire East Continent.
Su Mo did not linger, instead, streaked like lightning in the direction of Central Continent.
Countless demonic beasts saw Su Mo leave, but none dared to stand in his way. They had all seen him depart from Sacred Mountain.
Sacred Mountain was where the three overlords of Barbaric Mountains resided. No one dared lay a hand on those who came out from that place.
Su Mo flew on his Spiritual Sword and urged it to move at maximum speed.
Su Mo merged properties within his body together and unleashed his strongest move. He split space apart with his sword and quickly tunneled through space.
All the demonic beasts were on their pilgrimages. So, Su Mo’s passage out of the area was smooth-sailing. He continued to fly at maximum speed and only relaxed after flying for more than half a day.
“That was a close shave!”
Su Mo wiped the sweat from his forehead. If not for Lil Eight, he would not have survived even if he had ten lives.
“Lil Eight, I’ll come back for you when I’m stronger!” Su Mo sighed and continued his journey to Central Continent.
Su Mo did not forget to continuously refine his Dark Force and stabilize his cultivation, hoping to start devouring as soon as possible.
Time trickled by and Su Mo was still travelling.
Su Mo managed to avoid dangerous situations thanks to his Ghostly Magic Sight Martial Soul. After another 10 days of traveling, he finally approached the border of Barbaric Mountains. He was nearing Central Continent.
In a huge mountain valley within the outer edges of the Barbaric Mountains, a group of people were attempting to kill a large demonic beast.
This demonic beast was of Class 3 Lv 5 and resembled a wolf. It was about 33 meters long and had two sharp, piercing fangs that glinted with cold light, like two large knives.
Its body was also covered with a coat of sharp, black spines and looked extremely ferocious.
It was surrounded by a group of five martial artists, four men and a woman who were all in their twenties.
Constant explosions rang out and the powerful air blasts swept across the area, which constantly shattered the surrounding mountains.
The five of them jointly attacked the demonic beast but their combined strength was on par with that beast.
“Sister Yunxi, this Sky-demon Wolf is too powerful. I’m afraid we would not be able to kill it!” said a tall young man in yellow as he continued to attack.
The person he called ‘Sister Yunxi’ was the only female in the group.
Her skin was fair and her features were delicate. She wore a black tight suit and her hair was tied into a high ponytail, which made her look bright and brave.
“Even if it takes forever, we have to wear it down till it dies!”
Zhao Yunxi yelled through her clenched jaw. She kept waving her long sword and rays of piercing sword Qi shot toward the Sky-demon Wolf.
They might be weaker than the Sky-demon Wolf in terms of cultivation, but as long as they combined forces, they should be able to kill this beast.
Snarl! Snarl! Snarl!
The Sky-demon Wolf growled ferociously as the continued attacks from the group forced it to keep retreating. Soon, blood flowed freely from its body.
“Come on, let’s kill it!”
Shouted Zhao Yunxi as her attacks got fiercer.
The Sky-demon Wolf suddenly shot up to the air and broke free of their ambush.
“Don’t let it escape!” commanded Zhao Yunxi.
She and her four young allies chased the escaping beast.
All of a sudden, the Sky-demon Wolf turned around and was bursting with demonic Qi. Sharp bony spikes shot from its body like arrows toward the group.
These bony spikes travelled quickly. They made a shrill noise but too quick for the naked eye to percieve. The spikes neared the group in an instant.
“Oh no!” Zhao Yunxi and her comrades turned pale.
This was the Sky-demon Wolf’s most powerful move but it experienced a large dip in strength when these bony spikes were released.
Therefore, it wouldn’t usually deploy this attack unless absolutely necessary.
However, it deployed this move when it had a chance to escape which was completely unexpected.
The demon wolf caught its five assailants off guard.
They hastily tried to block the bony spikes with their most powerful techniques.
There was a string of explosions. Afterwards, two screams rang out.
Amongst the group, two young men of weaker cultivation had been instantly killed.
Zhao Yunxi and the other two young men had managed to block the spikes and sustained minor injuries from the bony spike attack.
The Sky-demon Wolf flew back with lightning speed and charged at Zhao Yunxi.
It instinctively identified Zhao Yunxi as the strongest one of the group. It wouldn’t need to fear the rest once she’s dead.
Zhao Yunxi turned pale. She just blocked the bony spikes attack and sustained internal injuries as a result. She found herself between a rock and a hard place. There was no way she would have been able to block this attack.
“Sister Yunxi!” shouted the other two.
They also wore pale faces. Zhao Yunxi was the granddaughter of the master of the Zhaos. If she perished today at Barbaric Mountains, their master would be livid.
Zhao Yunxi felt dejected seeing the widely opened mouth of the ferocious wolf and smelling its foul breath.
Suddenly, a dazzling five-colored Sword Qi rained down upon the Sky-demon Wolf’s head at incredible speed.
The Sky-demon Wolf’s head split into two with a loud explosion. Blood and brains splattered. The wolf had been killed.
Zhao Yunxi was stunned and immediately looked up. She spotted a young man in white flying past.
“He saved me!” muttered Zhao Yunxi.
She immediately accepted the young man in white as her savior.
“Young master, please wait!” shouted Zhao Yunxi.
Zhao Yunxi immediately shot to the sky in pursuit of a young man in white when she noticed he was moving too quickly and away from her.
