“Bastard, you’re courting death!”
Many Nascent Souls shouted at the same time and attacked one after another.
Dharmic power filled the skies as multiple Dharmic arts collided to create a deafening bang!
Dharmic weapons descended.
The might of the universe enveloped Cang Lang Mountain Range and the entire valley quaked violently.
Mountain peaks collapsed, gravel rolled, ancient trees fell over and dust billowed – it was like an apocalypse!
The Nascent Souls present were truly enraged.
Su Zimo had murdered the three princes right in front of them. That was equivalent to a complete disregard for them!
Furthermore, with the three princes dead and a heavy loss for the allied army, they could only retreat even if they survived.
This conquest could only be considered as a failure.
After killing the three princes, Su Zimo did not linger at all and escaped right away.
His Inner Core churned fanatically and his blood qi surged. Descending rapidly, he stuck close to the ground like an anaconda and slithered towards the depths of the forest with extremely nimble movement techniques!
His frightening spirit perception was released.
He was escaping with all his might!
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
The sound of Dharmic arts bombarded his ears constantly.
Dharmic weapons tore through the air with cold gleams.
Against the hunt of a hundred Nascent Souls, a single mistake would result in instant death!
A Dharmic art descended.
Su Zimo’s tendons and bones rang at the same time and his body contorted to a degree beyond the limits of an ordinary person. By a hair’s breadth, he evaded the Dharmic art again!
The Dharmic art ruptured a mountain rock that smashed down heavily on Su Zimo’s back.
He coughed out a mouthful of blood but he did not stop at all!
At that moment, a single moment of sluggishness in his movement would result in instant death!
A flying sword streaked by.
A bloody gash appeared on Su Zimo’s thighs.
However, there was no fluctuation in his eyes, as though he could feel no pain at all!
As Su Zimo escaped, he coordinated his muscles to allow the flesh on both sides of the wound to close and stop the blood flow momentarily. He continued sprinting and his speed had already reached its limits!
To be fair, this was also because it was dark in Cang Lang Mountain Range at the moment and he had the advantage of the complicated terrain.
Mountain peaks, forests, trees and holes… there were way too many places for him to hide.
Su Zimo had cultivated the Mystic Classic of the Twelve Demon Kings of the Great Wilderness and had spent a year living in Cang Lang Mountain Range many years ago. As such, he knew this place like the back of his hand.
That was the reason why he was able to maneuver his way around for such a long time against the pursuit of a hundred Nascent Souls. In fact, there were a few times when he nearly shrugged them off his tail!
However, as time passed by, Su Zimo’s situation became increasingly dangerous.
He was injured.
The frantic escape took a huge toll on him and he had no time to recuperate at all.
His speed was bound to drop after an extended period of time.
Furthermore, it was no longer late at night.
As the day turned brighter, the vision range of the Nascent Souls would increase as well.
Once they formed an encirclement, it would be difficult for him to escape even if he had wings!
“Beast, you’re bound to die today!”
The hundred Nascent Souls had cultivated for several hundred years and with their experience, they could naturally read the current situation.
“I think we should capture this beast alive.”
“That’s right. I’m sure that there are countless factions and sects in the North Region who are interested in this lad.”
The hundred Nascent Souls were confident of their victory and began discussions.
After all, there were way too many secrets on Su Zimo.
He had entered the Human Emperor’s Palace and was the second person in history after the Human Emperor to cultivate to the Extreme Foundation Establishment realm.
He was the only one who knew the secrets behind the Extreme Foundation Establishment realm!
Furthermore, he was in possession of the legendary treasure, the divine phoenix bone!
The eyes of the hundred Nascent Souls shone with excitement.
In reality, at their cultivation realm, they were no longer really attracted towards the strife of dynasties.
Although this conquest was a failure, if they could capture Su Zimo alive and obtain a treasure such as the divine phoenix bone, the trip would definitely not be wasted!
“I’m extremely curious how someone in this world can fuse the cultivation techniques of demons and immortals!”
A Nascent Soul mulled deeply.
The other Perfected Lords looked on keenly in silence.
In reality, everyone had the same idea. Although Su Zimo had many treasures and secrets on him, what was truly valuable was that unknown demonic cultivation technique!
Everyone witnessed how Su Zimo was able to kill five Nascent Souls above his level after cultivating the technique!
Although they were sneak attacks that preyed on one’s carelessness, it was still frightening!
Furthermore, Su Zimo’s movement speed was not weaker than Nascent Souls. The strength of his body and intensity of his blood qi was shocking as well!
Both sides continued with the chase and escape.
A group of Nascent Souls discovered to their shock that the forest before them was gradually thinning.
Everyone gazed into the distance.
The path ahead was clear!
“Haha! That lad chose a wrong path in his panic and escaped out of the mountain range!”
The Perfected Lords roared in laughter and chased endlessly.
If they left the forest, it would mean that Su Zimo’s final hope at escaping would be gone.
The Perfected Lords witnessed Su Zimo sprint furiously into a small town closest to Cang Lang Mountain Range before entering a room in a mansion and never appearing again.
“Everyone, hold on. Let’s not get careless. There might be some reason why that lad escaped here,” Someone stopped the group with a doubtful expression.
“Brother Li, you’re giving too much credit to this lad,”
Someone at the side chuckled softly. “Take a look at what’s in that mansion.”
Someone came to a realization. “I’ve got it! That must be his brother’s corpse!”
“That’s right. After knowing that he has nowhere to run, the lad has most likely returned to this place so that he can die with his brother.”
A Nascent Soul declared confidently, “This is what it means by returning to one’s roots. If I’m not mistaken, this small town should be where the lad was born!”
“It’s highly possible.”
The Nascent Souls emanated with sharp auras as they barged into the small town.
With the huge commotion, the citizens that chose to remain in the town were long awakened.
Everyone had frightful expressions, hiding in their houses not daring to make any sound.
“Granny, what are you afraid of?”
In a dilapidated house, a naive sound of a child echoed.
Although the voice was weak, the Nascent Souls in midair heard everything loud and clear.
The old lady raised her finger and whispered in a hushed tone, “Child, don’t speak! You will die if the immortals are offended!”
The child asked with widened eyes of curiosity, “Why would the immortals be offended? What did I do?”
“Sigh, there’s no need for any reason for immortals to be offended.”
The old lady sighed. “Dozens of years ago, there was a scholar in this town who was nearly burned to death in flames because he did not kneel down to the immortals!”
The child exclaimed, seemingly scared.
The old lady clutched the child’s mouth hurriedly and broke out in cold sweat.
When she released her hand slowly a while later, the child had a pensive look before whispering, “Granny, there are also good and bad immortals! The immortals who kill without reason are bad immortals!”
There was a boom.
The roof above the both of them was torn away all of a sudden!
A hundred mighty figures stood in midair and looked down at the both of them coldly.
The old lady hugged the child tightly with frightful eyes and shivered.
A Nascent Soul barked coldly with a menacing gaze, “Talking bad about immortals behind our backs is a crime punishable by death!”
Suddenly, there was a creak and a door opened in a mansion not far away. A refined-looking scholar strode out with long green robes.
