The voice reverberated through Howling Moon Mountain. However, the fight between the demons was intense and not many demon beasts took notice of it.
Yet, the spirit tiger, Qing Qing and the others were invigorated!
An explosion sounded from the entrance of a cave abode above the mountaintop. The stone door exploded with a frightening force and countless rocks were sent flying!
Among the debris, a figure traveled at an extremely fast speed and arrived beside monkey almost instantly.
Solitary Cloud’s heart skipped a beat; his vision turned blurry for an instant and the figure had already vanished.
He could not even keep up with the figure with his eyes!
Solitary Cloud released his spirit consciousness and squinted his eyes.
The intruder wore green robes and had shoulder-length scarlet hair. Although he had refined features, he exuded an unusually demonic aura from head to toe!
The intruder scooped up Imminent that was falling with his left hand and swung it against Duan Yong’s spine in reverse!
Flesh and blood splattered everywhere!
Duan Yong’s massive body was cut into two by the tremendous power released by Imminent; his organs spilled out into the air with a nauseating blood stench!
At the same time, the intruder extended his right arm with lightning speed and managed to grip the Blood Bat of Cyclone Cave that was flickering left and right at a rapid pace!
Blood Bats of Cyclone Cave were known for their speed.
However, it could not escape from the intruder’s palms!
The Blood Bat was a mid-level fiend demon and screeched hurriedly when its throat was gripped by someone’s palm. It struggled violently but could not break free no matter what it did.
The person exerted strength without any hesitation!
The throat of the Blood Bat of Cyclone Cave was snapped right away!
It was a clean kill!
The entire process was fluid as water without any sluggishness.
In the blink of an eye, the physical bodies of two mid-level fiend demons were completely destroyed!
For low-level fiend demons, the destruction of the physical body was almost equivalent to death.
However, for mid-level fiend demons, their Essence Spirits could roam; there was a chance that they could survive despite the chaotic battlefield with weapons and attacks crossing everywhere!
There was a bright flash and two glows floated out from the corpses.
One of them was a thumb-sized bull and the other was a blood-colored bat, both of whom fled swiftly into the distance.
When the Essence Spirit was exposed to the outside world without its physical body, the dangers it had to face increased significantly.
However, without the shackles of the physical body, the Essence Spirit resonated closer to Heaven and Earth and was able to move much faster without resistance!
Unfortunately, no matter how fast the two Essence Spirits were, they were not faster than the speed of sound!
The intruder released a roar swiftly after he destroyed the physical bodies of the two mid-level fiend demons.
It was a thunderous boom that shook one’s mind!
The two Essence Spirits did not manage to escape far when the voice sounded. Both of them shuddered and paused in midair stiffly.
A moment later, the glow around the Essence Spirits gradually dimmed and cracks appeared one after another throughout their bodies as they fell from midair.
The Essence Spirits of two mid-level fiend demons were completely destroyed!
All the demons were in an uproar!
At the start, the voice might not have been able to attract everyone’s attention. However, this scene was more than enough to shock all the demons present!
Even the Territorial Lords of Black Sand Ridge and Cyclone Cave paused for a moment and turned over with frowns on their faces.
Countless spirit demons had died by this point of the battle.
More than ten low-level fiend demons had fallen as well.
However, there were no mid-level fiend demons that died.
Yet, the moment this person appeared, he took down two mid-level fiend demons with thunderous means – how could anyone ignore him!
Who was this person?
That was the greatest and only question in the mind of the demons present.
Right then, Black Wolf could not help but holler when he caught sight of the intruder.
“It’s our Territorial Lord! Our Main Territorial Lord of Howling Moon Mountain!”
The Rat King was drenched in blood from head to toe. However, he was rejoiced and spirited as well when he saw who had arrived, shouting loudly.
The demons of Howling Moon Mountain were invigorated and cheered with gusto.
Throughout the battle, the demons had almost forgotten cleanly about this mysterious Territorial Lord that had never shown himself!
Nobody expected him to finally make an appearance at this critical moment!
“I heard that the new Territorial Lord of Howling Moon Mountain is a low-level fiend demon. Originally, I could not believe it. Seems like the rumors are true after all. Fufu, Howling Moon Mountain is sure getting more worthless by the day,”
A stifled laugh echoed from midair.
Solitary Cloud looked down with a faint hint of mockery in his eyes and his hands behind his back.
Low-level fiend demon?
The demons of Howling Moon Mountain froze for a moment and turned towards the intruder with lost looks in their eyes.
“I-It does… seem like he’s truly a low-level fiend demon.”
“How could that be?”
In the blink of an eye, the smiles on the faces of the Howling Moon Mountain demons vanished. All of them shook their heads and sighed in disappointment.
The greater the expectation, the greater the disappointment.
Initially, the demons thought that their new Territorial Lord could lead them to force back the strong foes.
What could a low-level fiend demon do?
Given the circumstances, even mid-level fiend demons with ordinary strength could barely handle the chaos.
The intruder was none other than Su Zimo who was in seclusion.
His kill of the two mid-level fiend demons happened in a fleeting moment. Apart from a few people who were watching idly by the sidelines, almost nobody else noticed it.
That was the reason why the demons of Howling Moon Mountain were not overwhelmed despite witnessing the death of two mid-level fiend demons.
Many demons even thought that their new Territorial Lord committed a dishonorable ambush attack.
Su Zimo supported monkey and returned Imminent to the latter, asking, “Can you still fight?”
Although monkey’s eyes were considerably less bloodshot and his berserk power had faded as well, the fighting spirit in his eyes did not diminish in the slightest bit!
Su Zimo said, “Go and help the spirit tiger and the others. Leave things here to me.”
Monkey agreed to it readily.
The Territorial Lords of Black Sand Ridge and Cyclone Cave did not say anything at all. They merely squinted and spread their mighty spirit consciousnesses to scan Su Zimo’s body continuously.
Both of them wanted to read Su Zimo!
However, to their surprise, they could not even make out his true form!
If not for the demonic aura that Su Zimo exuded, they would have even thought that they were facing a human cultivator!
Solitary Cloud frowned as well.
The scarlet-haired man before him was only a low-level fiend demon, but he could not read this man at all!
The most puzzling thing was that he felt shudders when he looked at this scarlet-haired man!
It was an unprecedented situation.
As a wyrm, he was a top-tier expert even among pure-blooded ferocious beasts. Furthermore, he was a full major cultivation realm above this person – how could he be feeling shudders?
It must be his imagination!
Wait, something isn’t right!
Solitary Cloud closed his eyes slightly and took a deep breath.
It was the aura of the Dragon race!
His expression changed.
This man exuded a faint aura of the Dragon race!
“I’ve got it!”
Suddenly, Solitary Cloud realized what was happening. “This man must be in possession of the treasure of the Dragon race!”
Everything would make sense if that was the case.
The reason why this person was able to become the Territorial Lord of Howling Moon Mountain despite the fact that he was a low-level fiend demon was because he had the treasure of the Dragon race!
Although Solitary Cloud was expressionless, he was secretly delighted when he finally understood what was happening.
A treasure that can help a low-level fiend demon become a Territorial Lord is definitely extraordinary!
The heavens are truly on my side. I’m excited just thinking about it!
Solitary Cloud thought to himself as his lips curled.
