In the Tianhuang North Region, the strength of Stellar Luna Sect and Blaze Columbus Valley was above Ethereal Peak.
As the paragons of those two sects, Wang Yan and Qian Xinyu had survival methods and were difficult to kill in the first place.
Furthermore, Su Zimo was severely injured by the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile in the underground cave and was now battling with heavy injuries.
Qian Xinyu and Wang Yan escaped frantically and Su Zimo’s Golden Core phenomenon was already unable to hold out, fading gradually while his Golden Core throbbed in pain.
That was a sign that his spirit energy was being pushed to its limits!
Su Zimo was filled with killing intent and a fierce gaze.
He must not let the two of them escape!
If they got out, the location of the medicinal field would definitely be leaked out.
The 10,000 Year Vermilion Fruit would only ripen in another month and that would add too many variables as to who would get their hands on it eventually.
The killing intent in Su Zimo’s heart rose. Devouring a Spirit Regeneration Elixir, he leaped into the air and pursued Qian Xinyu and Wang Yan who were scurrying to escape.
Although he was severely injured and his spirit energy was depleted, with the burst of his bloodline and the help of his Ethereal Wings, Su Zimo’s speed was still frighteningly fast!
Qian Xinyu and Wang Yan did not leave Su Zimo’s line of sight the entire time.
Using Flame Escape, Wang Yan was the first to rush out of the underground palace.
He was followed by Qian Xinyu and Su Zimo was right behind.
By now, Su Zimo was already close to catching up to Qian Xinyu!
Sensing an evil gust of wind behind him, Qian Xinyu turned back and was scared out of his wits.
The both of them were less than ten feet apart!
With a pale expression, Qian Xinyu commented with a dark gaze, “Fellow Daoist, I’ve already given up on trying to fight for the medicinal field. There’s no need for you to hunt me down ruthlessly, right? How about letting me live?”
“Hunt you down ruthlessly?”
Su Zimo sneered and asked instead, “Have you considered letting me live earlier on?”
“You…!” Qian Xinyu was speechless.
Snarling, Su Zimo continued, “It’s too late to beg for mercy now!”
Qian Xinyu was injured by the Divine Turtle phenomenon after all and his condition was getting worse as he sprinted; a trickle of blood was dripping from the corners of his mouth.
“Don’t force me!”
Qian Xinyu’s eyes flashed with lunacy as he shouted while panting, “It won’t be good for you either if we really fall out!”
“How dare you threaten me still?!”
Su Zimo’s killing intent was sharp as he remarked frostily, “I’ll kill you first!”
In his life, Su Zimo hated to be threatened.
Qian Xinyu’s words sealed the nail on his coffin!
When he sensed Su Zimo’s killing intent, Qian Xinyu knew that he was doomed and yelled from the depths of his throat, “There’s a 10,000 year old medicinal field here and a 10,000 Year Vermilion Fruit that’s about to ripen!”
Qian Xinyu used almost all of his strength with that shout.
All the cultivators in the vicinity of the Great Qian Ruins moved with his voice.
In reality, even without Qian Xinyu’s shout, there were already some cultivators that noticed the activity in the depths of the palace and were rushing over.
Some of their movements were already heard by Su Zimo.
There were also cultivators appearing in his line of sight.
He could not let things drag on anymore!
With a cold gaze, Su Zimo slapped his storage bag and withdrew a moon-white gigantic bow. Pausing in his tracks, he loaded the bow and aimed at Qian Xinyu’s back.
Five spirit patterns shone on the moon-white gigantic bow brightly.
If anyone focused their attention, they would vaguely see that there was a sixth spirit pattern on the bow!
However, that sixth spirit pattern had not formed and materialized completely.
It was the quasi-connate spirit weapon, Moon Concealment Bow!
Channeling his bloodline, Su Zimo drew the bow with a shocking divine power as though he was hugging a full moon.
A sharp arrow tore through the air at an extremely fast speed, arriving instantly like a flash of lightning.
Qian Xinyu felt the killing intent behind him as well. Without even turning back, he crushed a protection talisman right away and dodged to the side with all his might.
A flash of blood appeared.
Even so, Qian Xinyu was still a step slower and his right chest was penetrated by Su Zimo’s arrow, causing blood to spurt out!
There was no way of withstanding the might of the Moon Concealment Bow unless he was using a top-tier protection talisman!
That arrow did not pierce Qian Xinyu’s heart.
However, his lung was pierced and the tremendous force ripped his lung apart, almost rupturing his other organs as well!
Qian Xinyu let out a weird sound as though his throat was a windpipe that was leaking air.
“Even if… you… kill me… you won’t be… able to survive! Ee… ee!”
Fresh blood was being coughed out of Qian Xinyu’s mouth as his eyes turned bloodshot.
Although he could struggle to stand in midair, he could not survive for much longer.
Pshew! Pshew! Pshew!
There was a loud sound of arrows piercing through the air.
A series of dark lights shot into Qian Xinyu’s body.
The chase had already led the two of them away from the forbidden grounds of the palace and they were now outside.
Not far away, a pair of archers patrolling the palace fired more than ten malevolent arrows, almost riddling Qian Xinyu’s entire body with holes.
Qian Xinyu’s body exploded and he turned into a blood mist that spread out in midair.
The Golden Core paragon of Stellar Luna Sect was buried in the Great Qian Ruins!
Wang Yan had already fled far away using Flame Escape and was almost out of Su Zimo’s line of sight.
There were ways for Su Zimo to kill Wang Yan as well.
If he were to release Blood Escape, he would definitely be able to catch up to Wang Yan.
Otherwise, if Su Zimo were to circulate his Inner Core and burst forth with his blood qi, he could receive a boost in speed and hunt down Wang Yan with his demon form. In that case, Wang Yan would almost definitely be dead as well.
But now, there were already more and more cultivators rushing over to where he was.
Those two methods were both inappropriate.
Furthermore, if Su Zimo were to continue chasing, it would mean leaving Xuan Yi and the other two alone in the underground palace.
Given their severe injuries, they could meet with danger at any moment!
More than ten archers in the palace turned their sights towards Su Zimo and started drawing their bows in unison, prepared to attack once more.
After a moment of contemplation, Su Zimo decided to retreat to the forbidden grounds of the palace and turned around, speeding in the direction of the underground palace.
Before he arrived at the entrance, he already caught sight of multiple cultivators swarming towards the underground palace!
The remark that Qian Xinyu shouted prior to his death had still attracted quite a bit of trouble.
“All of you, get lost!”
Before he arrived, Su Zimo sprinted over and shouted like a God of War, his black hair swaying while his gaze burned.
Xuan Yi and the other two were severely injured in the underground palace – Su Zimo would definitely not allow the three of them to be met with danger!
“Hmph, the treasures of the world belong to the strong. Who are you to stop us?”
Someone swept his gaze at Su Zimo and sneered after seeing that the latter was only at early-stage Golden Core realm.
Without saying anything more, Su Zimo raised the Moon Concealment Bow in his hands and fired an arrow.
A dark light streaked by and that person’s throat was pierced, dying on the spot without making a sound.
“Perfect spirit weapon? No, there seems to be a sixth spirit pattern that’s almost forming! That’s a quasi-connate spirit weapon!”
When someone saw the Moon Concealment Bow in Su Zimo’s hands, greed filled his eyes as he hollered, “Unknown demon, how dare you act so insolently here!”
Su Zimo scoffed coldly and loaded an arrow.
A flash of blood appeared.
Yet another Golden Core fell from midair.
Two consecutive arrows murdered two Golden Cores one after another.
Su Zimo’s torrential ferocity was absolute and stunned almost all the cultivators present instantly!
