Chapter 1123: Ten Thousand Gu Swamp
By the time Su Zimo arrived at Ethereal Peak, the battlefield outside the sect had already been cleared.
The moment he descended on the main peak, Night Spirit had already arrived silently.
“How is it?”
Su Zimo asked.
Night Spirit remarked casually.
Su Zimo looked at Night Spirit deeply but did not ask further.
The blind old man was a Dharma Characteristic expert of the Witch race and his combat strength was comparable to a human Conjoint Body Mighty Figure.
Night Spirit would definitely be able to protect himself even though he hunted after the blind old man alone. However, the fact that he was able to kill the latter showed how terrifying his combat strength was!
In reality, Night Spirit had never revealed his true strength in front of others.
That was because ever since Night Spirit formed his core, he had not taken on his entire demon form.
Even back in Myriad Phenomenon City, Night Spirit only revealed a tiny bit of himself.
There was a secret in Night Spirit’s heart.
Su Zimo knew.
However, he respected Night Spirit.
As long as Night Spirit did not say anything, he would not probe further!
Thereafter, the two of them arrived at the Disciplinary Hall of the sect and saw the dejected Dao Being Lone Soul who was personally guarded by Nian Qi.
Dao Being Lone Soul raised his initially slumped head when he heard a commotion.
At the sight of Su Zimo’s figure, hatred filled the depths of his eyes once more!
He was filled with hatred!
He had not expected that with the strength of the Witch race as a backing and an unparalleled momentum, everything would be destroyed by this green-robed cultivator!
Back then, this green-robed cultivator was merely at the Foundation Establishment realm.
To him, that was like nothing but an ant.
To think that this ant from the past would grow to such a terrifying realm in just a hundred years!
More than a hundred years ago, Dao Being Lone Soul’s dominance plan did not succeed. On the surface, it was because of the Asura Yan Beichen’s interference.
However, in reality, the reason why Yan Beichen could arrive on time was because of Su Zimo.
Back then, because Demoness Ji was worried about Su Zimo’s safety, she made use of the relationship between Pure Maiden Sect and Asura Sect to inform Yan Beichen of Ethereal Peak’s crisis.
When he saw Su Zimo enter, Dao Being Lone Soul sneered with a hoarse voice.
“You’ve failed, haven’t you? The young master of the Witch race is not someone an ant like you can threaten! When the Witch race comes back, all of you from Ethereal Peak will die with me!”
Knowing that he was going to die today, Dao Being Lone Soul no longer had any fear in his heart.
“Sorry to disappoint you,”
Su Zimo replied indifferently, “Wu Li is already dead.”
Dao Being Lone Soul was first stunned before he shrieked.
He did not believe it!
The Witch race was one of the Primordial Nine Races and the young master of the Witch race was the strongest among his peers. There was no way a human cultivator could kill the young master of the Witch race!
Su Zimo could not be bothered to argue with him. Arriving in front of Dao Being Lone Soul, he looked down at this person who was once a domineering existence and asked, “Tell me, where is Gu Sect?”
Dao Being Lone Soul sneered, “The catastrophe caused by the Black Blood Gu can’t be controlled anymore, right? No matter what you ask, I won’t tell you!”
Since he knew that he was going to die, he had already made up his mind not to reveal anything to Su Zimo!
“It’s fine if you don’t want to tell me. I’ll see for myself!”
Suddenly, Su Zimo reached out and pulled Dao Being Lone Soul’s Essence Spirit out.
A ball of light appeared in his palm and pitch-black threads extended from the ball of light, connecting to Dao Being Lone Soul’s Essence Spirit.
Dao Being Lone Soul was stunned.
“Soul Searching Art!”
His expression was filled with endless shock and fear.
Immediately after, he felt a sharp pain in his Essence Spirit, as though an invisible force was being absorbed by the black threads that coiled around his body endlessly.
Su Zimo activated the Soul Searching Art and searched Dao Being Lone Soul’s memories repeatedly.
Actually, as a remnant of the Witch race, Dao Being Lone Soul had many secrets in his memories.
However, in order to resolve the current Gu worm calamity, Su Zimo could only try his best to search for traces of Gu Sect in that vast sea of memories.
A long time later, Su Zimo’s heart skipped a beat.
Finally, in the latter half of Dao Being Lone Soul’s memories, he saw some clues about Gu Sect!
After another short while, Su Zimo finally let out a long breath and ended the Soul Searching Art.
Although Dao Being Lone Soul’s Essence Spirit did not die after the raid of the Soul Searching Art, its glow had dimmed completely.
He stood frozen like an idiot that had lost any ability to think.
Without hesitation, Su Zimo crushed Dao Being Lone Soul’s Essence Spirit and killed him!
Although Dao Being Lonely Soul was the catalyst for the outbreak of the Witch Gu, it would not have caused such a terrifying destructive power without the appearance of an extinct Gu worm.
If he wanted to take drastic measures to resolve the issue of the Witch Gu, he could only seek an answer from Gu Sect!
“Young Master, are you planning to head to Gu Sect?”
Nian Qi asked.
Su Zimo did not choose to hide the truth.
“I’ll accompany you!”
Nian Qi stood out hurriedly and said eagerly.
“Ethereal Peak has just gone through this huge battle. Stay and stabilize the situation,”
Su Zimo smiled. “Don’t worry, I’m only going to check things out. Given my capabilities, there won’t be many people who can stop me from escaping if I sense that something is amiss.”
“I’ll go with you.”
Night Spirit said from the side.
Su Zimo was elated.
With Night Spirit’s help, they could even venture into a tiger or dragon’s lair!
According to Xiaoning, although Gu Sect was one of the five heretical doctrines, their overall strength was ranked at the bottom of the five heretical doctrines.
That was because Gu Masters spent too much effort to nurture Gu worms and there were no top experts in the sect.
The reason why Gu Sect could be ranked among the five heretical doctrines was because of their terrifying destructive power!
The bloody calamity of the Witch Gu this time round was an example of that!
The Gu worms were still wreaking havoc in the North Region. Su Zimo did not linger in Ethereal Peak and sped towards the southwest with Night Spirit.
In the cultivation world, there had been no Gu Masters for countless years.
The location of Gu Sect was a secret to most cultivators.
However, Su Zimo discovered the location of Gu Sect within Dao Being Lone Soul’s memories.
In the southwest corner of the North Region, there was an area that was filled with poisonous miasma all year round. It covered the skies and was extremely powerful. Any living being that approached would die from the poison!
This region was barren and uninhabited.
It was a perilous land.
Not to mention cultivators, even many demon beasts would not enter easily.
Two figures appeared on the ground.
One of them wore green robes and had delicate features.
One of them wore black and had a cold expression.
It was Su Zimo and Night Spirit!
Outside the miasma, Su Zimo looked down at the land and frowned slightly.
The miasma was extremely strong and could isolate spirit consciousness and vision.
Even with his spirit consciousness, he could only scan a few hundred meters.
“Ten Thousand Gu Swamp?”
Su Zimo furrowed his brows slightly.
In Dao Being Lone Soul’s memories, Gu Sect was located above the Ten Thousand Gu Swamp and that was its approximate location!
However, the place in front of him did not seem related to the words ‘Ten Thousand Gu Swamp’.
