“Zimo, think about what you want to take away next,”
The old monk said, “The Dragon Bone Valley is the resting place of the primordial Dragon race. Your bloodline is impure and you will definitely be ostracized upon entering. I’m afraid you will be in a difficult situation.”
Indeed, Su Zimo’s body did not have a pure bloodline.
However, his bloodline was derived from cultivating the Mystic Classic of the Twelve Demon Kings of the Great Wilderness. Coupled with the blood of the Illumination Dragon, it was even more terrifying than a pure-blooded Illumination Dragon!
“There’s no need to worry too much. No matter where it is, strength is everything.”
The red-headed ghost said, “Whoever is stronger will have the final say! If you can beat those little brats of the Dragon race into submission, you’ll naturally obtain their recognition.”
Su Zimo nodded.
He had many treasures on him and his two Essence Spirits were about to cultivate separately – he had to make careful arrangements.
The Bronze Square Tripod was the Destiny Dharmic Weapon of the scarlet-haired Yin Spirit and naturally had to follow him.
The Illumination Stone could only be used in this body and had to follow the scarlet-haired Yin Spirit to the Dragon Bone Valley.
Of course, his greatest reliance in Dragon Bone Valley would be his body and bloodline!
The true body of the Dragon race would continue to cultivate according to the Mystic Classic of the Twelve Demon Kings of the Great Wilderness.
To a certain extent, the true body of the Dragon race was a Dao that Die Yue had chosen for Su Zimo and he would walk it to the end.
As for his black-haired Essence Spirit, after it finished reconstructing a body, a new Dao would be formed with the fusion of the human race’s immortal, Buddhist and fiend Daos.
However, that might not be his Dao!
Su Zimo was going to establish a Dao that belonged to him!
Before long, a mighty dragon roar sounded above Dragon Burial Valley, shaking the world with a power that could make all living beings submit!
The red-headed ghost opened his mouth and let out a dragon roar as well.
Immediately after, a divine dragon covered in fiery red scales and horns descended above the ancient temple.
The divine dragon’s gaze was like a torch as he surveyed the area below. A red beard fluttered beneath his chin and his entire body burned with flames, exuding a domineering might!
Around the divine dragon, a series of fine cracks appeared that trembled as cyclones howled!
The old monk frowned.
This was the resting place of many experts 10,000 years ago – he was naturally displeased for it to be disturbed like this.
A rusty chain burst forth from the cemetery at an extremely fast speed and arrived instantly.
Even the divine dragon in midair was struck heavily before it could react!
“Transform into human form and get the hell down!”
The red-headed ghost’s voice sounded.
The majestic divine dragon obediently transformed into a middle-aged man in scarlet robes and descended into the cemetery.
“Clan leader, you’re really not dead!”
When the scarlet-robed man caught sight of the red-headed ghost, he was excited and his eyes shone with endless joy!
Su Zimo could tell that such joy could not be faked and came from the bottom of his heart.
From the way the scarlet-robed man addressed the red-headed ghost as the clan leader, it was not difficult to tell that the red-headed ghost had an extremely high status in the Dragon race – if he was not the clan leader of the Dragon race, he was clan leader of the Illumination Dragon lineage!
However, Su Zimo did not know what sort of status the Illumination Dragon lineage had among the Dragon race.
He knew very little about the Dragon race.
“Clan leader, the chains on your body?”
When the scarlet-robed man caught sight of the chains on the red-headed ghost, his eyes widened in rage and killing intent. He walked forward, wanting to rip the chains apart.
“You don’t have to care about these scrap metals,”
The red-headed ghost pouted. “If I wanted to, I would have torn them off a long time ago.”
“Why haven’t you returned after so many years, clan leader?”
The scarlet-robed man could not help but ask.
The moment he said that, he seemed to have thought of something as he spun around and glared at the old monk not far away with a murderous aura, declaring coldly, “It must be that old bald monk! Don’t worry, clan leader, that old bald monk’s blood qi is deteriorating. Watch me kill him!”
Su Zimo was secretly speechless.
It was no wonder why this scarlet-robed man was from the Illumination Dragon lineage – his temper was way too fiery.
“Kill your head!”
The red-headed ghost shook the chains and whipped the scarlet-robed man once more.
Although the scarlet-robed man could dodge it, he did not move and allowed the red-headed ghost to whip him.
“There’s another reason why I’ve been here for so many years. You don’t have to know.”
The red-headed ghost did not explain to him and said in a deep voice, “I summoned you here today for something else. Bring him back to Dragon Bone Valley and recuperate in the primordial divine spring!”
“If the elders in the clan don’t allow it, tell them that it’s my intention.”
As he said that, the red-headed ghost pointed at Su Zimo.
The scarlet-robed man glanced at Su Zimo’s lifeless body on the ground and then at the scarlet-haired Yin Spirit. Frowning, he asked, “Clan leader, this lad’s bloodline is impure. There’s no need for you to value him so much, right?”
“Arrange according to my instructions.”
The red-headed ghost’s tone was unquestionable. “Also, this lad has a wyrm snake by his side who is also severely injured. Bring them together to the primordial divine spring.”
The scarlet-robed man was stunned.
While the red-headed ghost was the clan leader of the Illumination Dragon lineage and had an extremely high status within the Dragon race, those arrangements were truly against the rules!
“Clan leader, this will definitely attract dissent!”
The scarlet-robed man frowned. “Even if the elders of the Illumination Dragon lineage agree, I’m afraid the elders of the other four dragon lineages will step in to stop us.”
The red-headed ghost bolted upright as his eyes shone with a scarlet light. With a torrential aura, he hollered, “I’ve left the clan for 10,000 years and now, I can’t even arrange for two people to head to the primordial divine spring to recuperate?!”
“It’s not that. It’s just that the two of them…” The scarlet-robed man hesitated.
The primordial divine spring was extremely rare.
Within the Dragon race, only those with extremely high statuses and the purest bloodlines were qualified to enter.
Su Zimo and Solitary Cloud were not qualified at all.
To be precise, the two of them could not even be considered as the lowliest of the Dragon race!
The red-headed ghost fell silent.
After a long time, he looked at the scarlet-robed man and asked, “Do you know why I called you here?”
“I don’t know.”
The scarlet-robed man had a respectful expression.
Pointing at Su Zimo, the red-headed ghost said word by word, “From this day forth, you shall see him as part of my bloodline… my son!”
The scarlet-robed man’s expression changed as he exclaimed softly.
Su Zimo was shocked as well.
He had often bickered with the red-headed ghost – to think that he held such weight in the latter’s heart!
The red-headed ghost said slowly, “Is my child qualified to recuperate in the primordial divine spring?”
The scarlet-robed man nodded without hesitation.
The red-headed ghost continued, “Go back and tell those old fogeys of the Illumination Dragon lineage that I will no longer occupy the title of Illumination from this day forth. Leave it to the juniors to fight for it.”
The scarlet-robed man’s expression changed.
Su Zimo was confused when he heard that. He did not understand the significance of the title of Illumination that the red-headed ghost mentioned.
The red-headed ghost gazed into the distance with an unresolvable sorrow in the depths of his eyes.
After a while, he retracted his gaze and looked at Su Zimo who was beside him. There was no malice or killing intent on his face. Instead, his gaze was filled with a rare kindness.
“If Yan’er was still around, he should be the same as you. Brave, fearless, persistent and true…”
When he heard that, the scarlet-robed man looked pained as tears welled up in his eyes.
The old monk sighed deeply and shook his head as well.
