In the following days, under the fervent suggestion of the Overlords of Silvermoon Valley, Levitating Goat Peak and Thousand Snake Island, the demons brought their celebrations forward and drank merrily all the way till dawn!
The Thousand Demon Meet proceeded as usual.
However, the fight for the spots for the Blood Sea was pushed back!
The other Overlords and the old ape did not object to that.
Everyone could tell what the three Overlords were up to but nobody exposed them.
The young master of Levitating Goat Peak, the silver-robed man and the woman in makeup were all severely injured in Su Zimo’s hands and had to take a while to recover no matter what.
The old ape guarded the faction no matter what during the three days.
Su Zimo did not leave either.
During this period of time, incredibly resplendent glows should shine from the depths of the forest from time to time.
Some fiend demons said that a rare treasure was born there!
Some of the fiend demons that returned even said that there seemed to be an ancient ruin that attracted many fiend demons.
However, Su Zimo was not moved by anything.
He stopped the monkey, the spirit tiger and everyone else from leaving the old ape’s side as well.
During the three days, Su Zimo could clearly sense some gazes with malicious intents glaring at him from a hidden corner constantly!
If he had truly left the old ape’s side, there was a chance that he might walk into an elaborate setup made for him!
Three days later.
The seven Overlords announced at the same time the official commencement of the fight for the spots to cultivate in the Blood Sea!
The first trial was simple.
With the Thousand Year Blood Sea at the center, there were a few Blood Sea Badges made of superior-class mystic metal hidden in the radius of 250 to 500 kilometers.
There were a total of 500 tablets!
The Blood Sea Badges could be placed on the ground, buried in the mud or hidden within some caves.
The fiend demons taking part in this trial merely had to locate a single one of those badges.
This was a trial that could eliminate most of the fiend demons.
This was because although there were 500 Blood Sea Badges, only the first 100 fiend demons that found the badges were qualified to compete for the final 10 spots!
More than a hundred Territorial Lords stood out respectively from Levitating Goat Peak, Silvermoon Valley, Thousand Snake Island, Vermilion Cloud Valley, Confusion Mist Swamp and Golden Flames Mountain.
The opportunity to cultivate in the Blood Sea was rare and everyone wanted to give it a shot.
If they were lucky, there was a chance for them to get into the final trial!
As for Ape Chatter Ridge, there were only less than 20 fiend demons that took part, Su Zimo and Solitary Cloud included.
“Are you sure you can pass this trial?”
The old ape was still unconvinced and could not help but drag Su Zimo away and ask again.
The maximum range of a low-level fiend demon’s Essence Spirit was 50 kilometers.
It was truly hard for him to imagine that Su Zimo’s spirit consciousness could extend beyond 250 kilometers!
Su Zimo smiled faintly. “I can give it a shot.”
The old ape nodded.
Su Zimo and the others arrived one after another beside the Blood Sea enthusiastically.
“Eh? That demon, Mo, is here too! Isn’t he a low-level fiend demon?”
Su Zimo’s name had long spread through the entire Thousand Demon Meet during the past three days.
“He’s probably here to join the crowd.”
“Humph, it’s true that he’s strong in combat. However, he’s only looking to be humiliated if he partakes in something like this blindly!”
Many fiend demons discussed softly.
The young master of Levitating Goat Peak smirked coldly the moment he caught sight of Su Zimo and said in an odd manner, “What’s a low-level fiend demon doing here?”
“He’s probably here to cushion the base!”
The demons of Levitating Goat Peak roared in laughter.
Su Zimo had a calm expression as he glanced askance at the young master of Levitating Goat Peak. “You think that I won’t be able to get a Blood Sea Badge?”
“A low-level fiend demon dreaming of getting his hands on the Blood Sea Badge? You are truly the biggest joke in the world!”
The young master of Levitating Goat Peak used this rare chance to mock Su Zimo cruelly for the humiliation he suffered three days ago as he laughed loudly. “How far can your spirit consciousness extend? 10 kilometers? 15?”
“Let me tell you, the Blood Sea Badges are hidden more than 250 kilometers away! Someone like you…”
“What if I can get my hands on the Blood Sea Badges?”
The young master of Levitating Goat Peak was interrupted by Su Zimo before he could even finish.
“What are you talking about?”
The young master of Levitating Goat Peak shouted as though he had heard the greatest joke in the world, “I’ll eat up any Blood Sea Badge that you get!”
Su Zimo smirked with a hint of mockery in his eyes.
Initially, he was truly disinterested in this first trial.
However, he was moved when he heard what the young master of Levitating Goat Peak said.
The young master of Levitating Goat Peak pressured him with a provocative look. “Mo, do you dare to take on a gambit?”
“What are we betting on?” Su Zimo asked.
The young master of Levitating Goat Peak declared loudly, “We’ll bet on whether you can get your hands on the Blood Sea Badges!”
Su Zimo mulled in silence, as though he was put in a difficult position.
When the young master of Levitating Goat Peak saw that, he was even more certain and continued mocking, “If you don’t dare to make the gambit, scram! Don’t embarrass yourself here!”
“That’s right! Head back!”
“What’s a low-level fiend demon doing here?!”
The demons of Levitating Goat Peak chimed in hurriedly.
“Alright, I’ll take you on!”
Su Zimo’s face flushed red, as though he was worked up and agreed in a moment of recklessness.
“A gentleman must not renege on his words!”
The young master of Levitating Goat Peak added hurriedly, worried that Su Zimo might regret his decision.
He scanned the surroundings and declared to more than a thousand fiend demons around the Blood Sea. “Everyone, listen up! I’m having a gambit with Mo! I’ll eat up any Blood Sea Badge that he gets!”
“So, what happens if you can’t get any?”
The young master of Levitating Goat Peak turned to Su Zimo and asked smugly.
“I’ll leave that to you if I can’t get my hands on any,”
Su Zimo reverted to his nonchalant expression and shrugged his shoulders gently.
The young master of Levitating Goat Peak froze momentarily.
He suddenly felt uneasy when he caught sight of Su Zimo’s expression!
However, on second thought, he knew that this gambit was definitely in the bag for him!
Even if he lost, what’s the deal with eating a Blood Sea Badge?
Although the Blood Sea Badge was made using superior-class mystic metals and was hard to digest, it did not matter even if he ate it; all he had to do was excrete it later on.
Furthermore, how could he lose?
At that thought, the young master of Levitating Goat Peak nodded confidently. “If you lose, you’ll kneel before me in front of everyone and let me ride on you for three rounds around the Blood Sea!”
Su Zimo nodded in agreement.
That could be considered as an extreme humiliation.
No matter what, the gambit seemed unfair.
However, the demons merely thought that Su Zimo had gone insane and lost all sense of reason for accepting it.
“Mo is too young and has only cultivated for such a short time. It’s no wonder why he’s so impetuous and was fooled easily with a few words of provocations.”
“Fufu, the reputation he gained is about to be destroyed instantly!”
Some of the fiend demons smirked coldly.
The young master of Levitating Goat Peak suddenly said, “I dare to make a vow that if I regret my words, I’ll definitely face difficulties advancing in my cultivation in the future and will die of a calamity!”
Vows were extremely mysterious. It was fine if somebody did not make a vow. However, for all cultivators of all races, none of them dared to renege on a vow!
Even emperors were not spared from the shackles of a vow!
The demons present were shocked.
A vow would lead both parties to reach an irreversible situation!
Su Zimo smiled gently and made the vow soon after as well.
The gambit between both parties was established!
