The scarlet-haired Yin Spirit hovered in midair without any weight.
Su Zimo leaped down from the stone slab and walked towards a cave not far away.
The black-haired Essence Spirit controlled his body and hid in the cave temporarily; that could potentially save him from some trouble.
The black-haired Essence Spirit continued to cultivate while the scarlet-haired Yin Spirit vanished in a flash, headed towards the depths of Howling Moon Mountain.
Without the shackles of the physical body, the Essence Spirit was closer connected to Heaven and Earth. It faced significantly less resistance traveling through the air and was extremely fast, moving a thousand kilometer instantly.
In reality, if Su Zimo wanted to explore the territory of Howling Moon Mountain himself, he would require at least three days and nights.
However, with the speed of the scarlet-haired Yin Spirit, he could check out Howling Moon Mountain entirely with a single night!
Shadows of trees passed by him in a fleeting manner.
With the protection of the dragon scales, the scarlet-haired Yin Spirit shuttled through the forest freely and roamed the world with an indescribable freedom!
Su Zimo followed the map in his hands and gradually closed in to the center of Howling Moon Mountain.
That was the resting ground of the Howling Moon Mountain Territorial Lord!
Under normal circumstances, be it the Yin Spirit or a Nascent Soul realm Essence Spirit, neither were strong enough to carry physical objects.
The Yin Spirit could not even lift something as light as a goose feather, let alone this map.
However, with the dragon scales, the scarlet-haired Yin Spirit could lift light objects such as the map of Howling Moon Mountain!
Su Zimo was shocked.
The Mystic Classic of the Twelve Demon Kings of the Great Wilderness was truly strong!
Although the black-haired Essence Spirit cultivated the Purple Thunder Manual and Great Day Rulai Sutra, two top-tier cultivation techniques of the immortal and Buddhist Daos, it could not roam the world, let alone lift physical objects.
However, the Yin Spirit section from the Mystic Classic of the Twelve Demon Kings of the Great Wilderness alone could achieve it!
The Yin Spirit section came from the Ocean Dragon King.
In other words, even the Dragon race of Tianhuang Mainland might not be able to surpass Su Zimo’s in terms of their spirit refinement legacy!
Two hours later, Su Zimo was close to the core of Howling Moon Mountain.
In order to avoid detection, the speed of the scarlet-haired Yin Spirit gradually slowed down.
There were evidently more fiend demons around the vicinity.
However, none of the fiend demons noticed Su Zimo’s presence!
Firstly, most of them were cultivating and were hardly distracted.
Secondly, the scarlet-haired Yin Spirit was merely the size of a thumb and was extremely fast. Even if somebody caught a momentary glimpse of it, they would have thought that they were seeing things and thought nothing of it.
Thirdly, although Su Zimo had just advanced to the Nascent Soul realm, his scarlet-haired Yin Spirit was already much stronger than the Essence Spirits of other fiend demons since it could roam the world.
With that, it was even more difficult for those fiend demons to notice Su Zimo.
That was also why it was so powerful for the Essence Spirit to be able to leave one’s body!
Low-level fiend demons would hardly realize that they were being spied on at the side!
Su Zimo continued advancing and his speed slowed down.
He could clearly feel that there were two fiend demons cultivating at the front not far away. The Dharmic power fluctuation around them was extremely strong and surpassed the other fiend demons!
There were two mid-level fiend demons!
Su Zimo paused in his tracks and hid himself without advancing.
If he was not wrong, the two mid-level fiend demons should be the Howling Moon Territorial Lord, Black Wolf, and his deputy, Chan Ruyi.
The two of them were mid-level fiend demons and could use their Essence Spirits to roam.
Su Zimo hid himself carefully far away, not wanting to alarm the two of them.
All of a sudden!
Black Wolf stood up with an imposing aura. He hollered with a fervent gaze, “Who is there? How dare you spy on Howling Moon Mountain!”
‘Not good, I’ve been discovered!’
Su Zimo was alarmed.
‘There’s no wonder why he’s the Howling Moon Territorial Lord. Indeed, he’s capable. To think that he can even sense me despite how far I’m hiding here!’
Su Zimo was prepared to flee the moment the thought crossed his mind.
Since he was exposed, it was useless for him to linger any longer. Instead, he would be in danger and it would be difficult for him to get away.
Right then, a gentle breeze blew and three faint, glowing Essence Spirits flew into the air from the forest not far away.
Initially, Su Zimo wanted to leave. However, he paused in his tracks when he saw that.
To think that there were other Essence Spirits spying in the darkness!
The three Essence Spirits were in the shape of bats. The fact that they could roam to this spot meant that they were Void Reversion Essence Spirits!
One of the Essence Spirits said in an odd manner, “Howling Moon Mountain, you’ve got some capabilities indeed. To think that you were able to spot us! Humph, we’ll pay you a visit another day!”
Before that sentence was completed, the three Essence Spirits sped into the distance and tried to escape in time.
“Where can you run to?”
Black Wolf roared and his glabella shone, releasing a terrifying spirit consciousness that formed a murderous wolf in midair!
The wolf arrived instantly before an Essence Spirit, devouring the latter in a single chomp!
“Black Wolf, you… ah!”
The Essence Spirit could not dodge in time and shrieked before he could complete his sentence.
Su Zimo was secretly alarmed and his heart skipped a beat.
Black Wolf’s attack was a killing move targeted at Essence Spirits – it was even stronger and frightening than a spirit consciousness attack!
Spirit consciousness attacks were the most ordinary offensive means at the Void Reversion realm.
Some mid-level fiend demons or Void Reversions get the chance to cultivate secret skills for their Essence Spirits that could condense their spirit consciousnesses and in turn create attacks that were extremely lethal with concentrated strength!
Secret skills for Essence Spirits were extremely rare and the major sects kept everything to themselves.
In the Yang Spirit section of the Mystic Classic of the Twelve Demon Kings of the Great Wilderness, there was a secret skill from the Desolate Ocean Dragon King for the Essence Spirit.
Unfortunately, the text of the Yang Spirit section was incomprehensible; it seemed like an ancient language from the Dragon race and it was the same for the secret skill.
Of course, Su Zimo had not cultivated to that level and was not qualified to cultivate the Essence Spirit secret skill.
Previously, it was clear that the young master of Black Sand Ridge did not know any Essence Spirit secret skills.
If he had released an Essence Spirit secret skill, Su Zimo might not have been able to defend against it even with the fusion of his Essence Spirits!
Although the bat Essence Spirit was extremely fast, the secret skill of Black Wolf’s Essence Spirit traveled at an even faster speed and devoured the bat Essence Spirit!
The Essence Spirit of a mid-level fiend demon left its body and roamed here. To think that it would die in Black Wolf’s hands without the chance to even return to its body.
Chan Ruyi struck.
A tremendous spirit consciousness gathered and two curved blades appeared in midair all of a sudden, shimmering coldly and thin as cicada wings.
It was another Essence Spirit secret skill!
The two curved blades descended onto another Essence Spirit that was escaping and weaved across one another!
The bat Essence Spirit was sliced by the sabers and perished on the spot!
In the blink of an eye, the Essence Spirits of two Void Reversions perished.
Naturally, an Essence Spirit had to face immense danger upon leaving its body.
It was even more dangerous when they were spying on a Territorial Lord!
The two Territorial Lords of Howling Moon Mountain attacked and killed off two Essence Spirits cleanly. However, the third bat Essence Spirit seized the opportunity to flee far away.
“Black Wolf, Chan Ruyi, don’t get cocky now!”
The sound of the bat Essence Spirit echoed from far away. “Howling Moon Mountain is about to be doomed. Let’s see how much longer you can continue to be smug!”
The voice grew increasingly distant and eventually went silent.
Su Zimo hid where he was motionlessly.
If the two Territorial Lords of Howling Moon Mountain noticed him and released their Essence Spirit secret skills, his scarlet-haired Yin Spirit would definitely be severely injured even with the protection of the dragon scales!
