Chapter 1118: Exterminate!
Wu Li was stunned.
Instinctively, he felt that something was amiss.
He had never met the young master of the Illumination Dragon lineage before, let alone had any relationship with him – this guy seemed to be overly enthusiastic.
However, he could not figure out what was amiss.
Wu Li did not think too much about it.
While the Primordial Nine Races were not harmonious, there were no deep grudges between them either.
As the young master of the Witch race, even if he was not received like an important guest at the Dragon Bone Valley, he wouldn’t be in any danger.
Furthermore, the person before him was the young master of the Illumination Dragon lineage and their statuses were rather similar.
It was not an insult to his status to befriend this person.
At that thought, Wu Li chuckled. “Alright, since Fellow Daoist Long Zhu is so kind as to invite me, I’ll accept it.”
Su Zimo nodded and turned slightly, making an inviting gesture as he walked alongside Wu Li towards his lair.
The dragons that were initially welcoming Wu Li exchanged glances.
Although they were all dragons and there were even Dharma Characteristic dragons among them, their statuses could not compare to Su Zimo’s and they could only watch as Su Zimo took Wu Li away.
Many Illumination Dragons had long received the news that Su Zimo was heading over with Wu Li and gathered nearby curiously.
“As expected of the young master. He sure is important enough to be able to invite the young master of the Witch race over.”
“That’s true. By the looks of it, the two of them seem to have some sort of relationship.”
The dragons discussed.
Listening to the discussions around him, Wu Li glanced sideways and chuckled. “Fellow Daoist Long Zhu, although this is our first time meeting, I have a surreal feeling that we’ve known each other for a long time.”
“You’re not wrong,”
Su Zimo did not stop and replied in a seemingly casual manner.
Wu Li was stunned. For a moment, he could not understand the meaning behind Su Zimo’s words.
“Fellow Daoist, what do you mean? Have we met before?”
Wu Li revealed a reminiscent expression and said in a deep voice, “This is the first time I’ve left the Ghost Curse Tomb. In my memories, I don’t think I’ve met you before.”
Su Zimo stopped in his tracks and turned around. The corners of his lips beneath the mask curled up slightly as he said faintly, “Of course we’ve met before.”
Wu Li asked instinctively.
“Just a moment ago,”
Su Zimo sighed gently, as though he was blaming Wu Li for forgetting so quickly.
When that sigh entered Wu Li’s ears, he suddenly felt a chill run down his spine and his hairs stood on end!
At that moment, his mind was still in chaos.
However, for some reason, he felt his heart skip a beat when he saw the scarlet mask on Su Zimo’s face!
They had just met?
What did that mean?
Su Zimo’s figure flashed through Wu Li’s mind.
However, he quickly denied that conjecture.
That was impossible!
Su Zimo was already outside the sea of bones and as a human, there was no way he could enter!
What did this young master of the Illumination Dragon lineage mean by that?
“Fellow Daoist, take off your mask,”
Wu Li frowned slightly and glared at Su Zimo with an unfriendly expression. “Since you invited me, you should be honest with me. There’s no need to be secretive.”
Under normal circumstances, as a guest to the Dragon race, even if he saw a dragon with a mask, there was no right for him to request the other party to remove it.
That was way too rude.
Furthermore, this was the Illumination Dragon young master.
However, at that moment, Wu Li felt a sense of anxiety. He could only sense a hint of mockery, pity and sadness in the other party’s gaze.
This was definitely not normal!
At that moment, there were many Illumination Dragons gathered here. When they saw the odd behavior of the two of them, they looked over.
Su Zimo reached out and removed his mask slowly, revealing a delicate face. He smiled at Wu Li. “You won’t have a chance.”
That was the final sentence his Green Lotus True Body left to Wu Li before leaving.
Now that the sentence came forth from the Dragon True Body, it was like a death sentence!
Wu Li looked at the familiar face before him and his pupils constricted. He felt his scalp tingle and his soul almost left his body!
Apart from his hair color that was different from Dao Being Desolate Martial whom he had seen before, the person before him had the same features and countenance!
How was that possible?
Why would Desolate Martial appear in the Dragon race?
Even if Desolate Martial was qualified to enter the Dragon Bone Valley, how could he have arrived earlier?
There was no way Wu Li would be able to solve that complicated issue in that split second.
Countless thoughts gathered and finally, only a single voice remained.
No matter how Desolate Martial arrived at the Dragon race or gained a foothold here to even become the Illumination Dragon young master…
Wu Li only knew one thing – the person before him wanted to kill him!
The two of them were extremely close.
It would be difficult for him to escape directly.
Therefore, Wu Li instinctively activated his Essence Spirit secret skill, wanting to delay Su Zimo as much as possible!
“Spirit Slaying Curse!”
Wu Li activated the Spirit Slaying Curse.
This strange secret skill of the Witch race ignored the distance between them and descended once more into Su Zimo’s consciousness!
Releasing his Essence Spirit secret skill, Wu Li turned and fled.
Those two actions were almost done in one go without any pause.
However, the moment he turned around, he caught a glimpse of mockery in Su Zimo’s eyes.
Wu Li’s heart sank instantly!
He suddenly realized that he had made a huge mistake!
He should not have attacked!
This was the Dragon Bone Valley. Given his status, as long as he did not attack, even if Desolate Martial was the Illumination Dragon young master, the latter would not have any reason to be able to kill him.
If he did, it would be equivalent to starting a war between the Dragon and Witch races!
However, now that he had arrived at the Dragon Bone Valley and activated an Essence Spirit secret skill on a young master of the Illumination Dragon lineage, it was equivalent to giving the other party a reason to kill him!
Actually, Wu Li could not be blamed for that.
Initially, he thought that he was out of danger completely.
However, there was no way he would have expected that this terrifying monster incarnate would have been able to hunt him down to this point – they were even chatting casually moments earlier!
Anyone who encountered such a creepy situation would be flustered.
Right now, Wu Li only had a single thought!
He hoped that he would be able to speak!
As long as Su Zimo could not kill him instantly, he would be able to give all the dragons an explanation as long as he could speak!
The moment he opened his mouth, Su Zimo activated the Essence Spirit secret skill of his Dragon True Body as well!
A scarlet dragon scale appeared in his consciousness.
This was no ordinary dragon scale.
It was the most unique, one and only, Reverse Scale of a dragon!
The dragon scale collided gently against the cyclone of the Spirit Slaying Curse.
Everything happened silently.
The cyclone dissipated.
Before Wu Li could say anything, his eyes widened as though he was struck by lightning and the light in his eyes dimmed gradually.
In his consciousness, his dark green Essence Spirit was filled with cracks and had already dissipated!
Anyone who touched the Reverse Scale of a dragon would die!
Wu Li collapsed stiffly and his lifeforce dissipated, turning him into a corpse!
The young master of the Witch race died in the Dragon Bone Valley!
