Chapter 807: Swear To God
Translator: Transn Editor: Transn
Apart from the joy he felt due to his physical strength having surged, Su Mo was still concerned about how to get out of this hellish place.
After thinking for a while, he used his Mind to pull out two figures from the river outside his courtyard.
They were Leng Fan and Teal Fire King.
With two muffled sounds, they fell on the ground in front of Su Mo.
They hurriedly rose up and glared at Su Mo. They were so angry that they wanted to skin him alive.
Su Mo had put them at the bottom of the river and let them live. It was unbearable suffering for them.
Su Mo looked at them and asked casually, “Do you know about the Sky-burn Mansion?”
He had no other way but to seek counsel from them. They had both lived in the Central Continent and were Martial King Realm experts, so they should know something about this place.
“What the hell do you want from us?”
“Kid, just kill me, alright?”
They ignored the question and thundered as their eyes glittered with cold light.
Without emotion, a sense of a wicked smile flashed through Su Mo’s eyes. “I’m asking you one last time. Do you know about the Sky-burn Mansion?”
They still kept silent and glared at him.
Su Mo laughed as he pointed out two beams of finger radiance that pierced through their shoulders, causing blood to continually spill out.
They were extremely angry as they gnashed their teeth.
But they dared not say anything because their cultivations were sealed and they were nothing but pigs waiting to be butchered.
They were enduring it as patiently as they could, hoping there would be a chance to escape and then seek vengeance on Su Mo.
“Well, since you won’t talk, I’ll let you know what it feels like to be sucked dry!” Su Mo smiled coldly and then exerted his Martial Soul. A massive devouring power immediately shrouded them.
Subsequently, their blood intensely spurted out from the holes of their shoulders like a flood.
They turned pale with fright. They could not use cultivation to suppress the blood, hence they hurriedly used their hands to try to cover up the holes. However, their attempt was vain.
They could only feel a weird power that kept sucking their blood out.
“What trick is this?”
They snarled in horror. In just two seconds, half of their blood had been sucked out and they felt feeble.
Their blood rushed into Su Mo’s body and then was refined into pure Dark Force. In a few moments, he reached Peak Lv 9 True Darkness Realm.
The two people were both Martial King Realm experts. One was at Lv 3 Martial King Realm, while the other was at Lv 5 Martial King Realm. Therefore, their blood contained a great amount of Qi.
However, Su Mo could not advance further.
Presently, it was impossible for him to reach the Martial King Realm.
“If you don’t want to become mummies, you’d better answer my question!”
Su Mo looked at them and spoke coldly. He did not want them to die before they had given him some useful information.
“Are you going to the Sky-burn Mansion?” Leng Fan asked, not realizing that they were already inside there.
“Correct!” Su Mo nodded.
Leng Fan paused for a while and said, “The Sky-burn Mansion is one of the two caves, three sects, four cities, and five mansions. Of course I know about that place.”
Leng Fan knew that he had to obey Su Mo to survive. He did not want to suffer anymore.
“Then, do you know about the three gates in that place?” Su Mo was happy to hear that.
Leng Fan shook his head and said, “I’ve heard of them, but I don’t know much about them.”
Su Mo’s heart fell to his feet upon hearing this.
At this point, Teal Fire King said, “I do.”
Su Mo’s eyes lit up and he said, “Tell me, quickly!”
Teal Fire King caught Su Mo’s expression and thought that the information had to be very important to Su Mo.
He smiled slightly and said, “Unless you promise to let me go, I’d rather die than tell you that!”
“I promise. As long as you tell me the detailed information about the three gates, I’ll let you go!” Su Mo agreed without a second thought.
Teal Fire King snorted and said, “Humph! I don’t believe you. You have to swear to God that you will let me go unharmed!”
He was certain that the information was critical to Su Mo, so he could bargain with him now.
Su Mo narrowed his eyes upon hearing this. “How dare this guy threaten me?”
“Okay, I swear to God!”
Su Mo smiled, raised his hand high, and said aloud, “I, Su Mo, now swear to God that I will let Teal Fire King go unharmed as long as he tells me the information about the three gates. If I break my vow, I will be thunder-attacked to death!”
Teal Fire King smiled with satisfaction.
In the Firmament and Continent, the vows of martial artists were supervised by the laws of heaven. Normally, nobody would take such a vow.
Once he broke a vow like this, he would not be thunder-attacked, but his fortune would gradually disappear and he would die miserably.
Therefore, Teal Fire King was overjoyed to hear this because he did not think that Su Mo would dare to break a vow.
Then, he would be free, safe and sound.
Leng Fan looked gloomy. He regretted that he did not know about the three gates.
Teal Fire King could now go away easily, leaving Leng Fan to an unknown fate.
“Is this vow okay with you? You can tell me now!” Su Mo smiled in an inexplicable way.
Teal Fire King laughed and said, “In the Sky-burn Mansion, the Heaven Gate refers to heaven, the Earth Gate to hell, and the Human Gate to the human world. Whichever gate you enter, it’ll be very dangerous…”
“Tell me about the Earth Gate!” Su Mo interrupted him.
Teal Fire King nodded and said, “After you enter the Earth Gate, you will be under attack from infinite malicious ghosts, and their cultivation levels will be the same as yours…”
Su Mo interrupted him again. “How to pass the Earth Gate?”
