As long as he could get ahold of that Observant Finger Jade Compass, Luo Tongtian had the confidence he could find Qin Wushuang anywhere in the Xuan Yuan Mound.
Since time was limited, Luo Tongtian did not wish to tarry. After all, the more time he wasted meant more time for Qin Wushuang to escape.
He had to acquire that Observant Finger Jade Compass as soon as possible. Otherwise, it meant a greater possibility of Qin Wushuang entering the Heavenly Emperor Mountain.
After he had distributed the tasks, Luo Tongtian was about to dismiss the crowd. Suddenly, a surge of movement came from the communication jade. An Elder was sending urgent information through his spiritual perception.
"Head Dao Warrior, urgent news, someone saw Mu Rong Xu at the Full Moon Prefecture."
"Full Moon Prefecture?" The Head Dao Warrior was stunned. That Full Moon Prefecture was not far away from the Heavenly Emperor Mountain. One could say that it was the path one must pass through to enter the Heavenly Emperor Mountain, "What's she doing there?"
When talking about Mu Rong Xu, Luo Tongtian, the Head Dao Warrior, also had a bellyful of anger. If it weren't for this Mu Rong Xu, Luo Ting's heart would not have become so troubled. He would not have left the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect to create trouble for Qin Wushuang.
Presently, Luo Tongtian was experiencing the profoundness of the ancient proverb regarding the femme fatale.
That Elder said: "I don't know what she intends to do. She is keeping her movements a secret. It seems she's afraid of other people finding her."
With a gloomy complexion, Luo Tongtian instructed: "Regardless of what she wants to do, monitor her movements closely. Report to me anything of note!"
After some long travelling, Qin Wushuang finally entered the border of the Divine Brilliance Prefecture. Currently, the pursuit from those of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect had entered a fanatical state.
Across the entire Xuan Yuan Mound, almost all elite warriors of the Heavenly Emperor Mountain had gone out. They had also placed numerous different bounties. However, no one had expected that Qin Wushuang would take the initiative to make his own way to their home—the Divine Brilliance Prefecture.
Along the way, he had passed numerous prefectures. Finally, he had reached the Divine Brilliance Prefecture after a three month long trek. The map given to him by Lu Xianlou only showed a portion of the geographical terrain of the Divine Brilliance Prefecture.
In the past few months, Qin Wushuang was studying this map in addition to his training. On this day, as he stood next to a river with racing current, he wondered aloud: "This river should be the Flowing Cloud River, right?"
The map distinctly marked the Flowing Cloud River. This river flowed to the east. As Qin Wushuang and his group followed the river, soon they found the second location marked on the map. This location was named the Lion King Mountain Range. This desolate and remote area was the most sinister and deserted area within the entire Divine Brilliance Prefecture. Within the thousands of miles surrounding this area, there were no signs of human habitation.
"Boss, in the end, what is Mr. Lu Xianlou trying to tell us through this map?" Bao Bao asked with confusion.
Qin Wushuang said: "Lu Xianlou does not seem to be an enigmatic person. Since he gave me the map in secret, he must have plans."
"That day, judging by the conversation between him and that kid of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, Lu Xianlou and that sect should share some irreconcilable grudge. Boss, it seems that Lu Xianlou knows your identity."
"He already knew, he just didn't expose me." Thinking back to the situation, Qin Wushuang knew the implied meanings through Lu Xianlou's words.
Only, since everyone was an intelligent person, they did not expose each other.
"Look, this is the Lion King Mountain Range. This place is only a few thousand miles away from the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect. Following this Lion King Mountain Range, we should arrive at the Dark Wind Valley that is marked with great significance on the map."
This map contained a lot of significant markings. However, this Dark Wind Valley appeared to be the most prominent and the most eye-catching. Qin Wushuang assumed that this Dark Wind Valley should be the place Lu Xianlou had wanted him to search through the map.
Although it was only two to three thousand miles journey from the Lion King Mountain Range to the Dark Wind Valley, they must across the entire mountain range to arrive at their destination. Thus, it would be an extremely dangerous path.
Qin Wushuang did not dare to let down his guard along the way as he would not wish to startle those spiritual beasts in hibernation. The Lion King Mountain Range was a dangerous place where many spiritual beasts lived.
Normally, disciples of the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect would come here to train and to refine their skills at the Lion King Mountain Range. Therefore, to the Heavenly Luo Daoist Sect, the Lion King Mountain Range was an incredibly important place.
As they made their way with caution and solemnity, no accidents had happened in the end. As Qin Wushuang flew out of the Lion King Mountain Range, he arrived at the Dark Wind Valley that was covered by a cloud of dark mist.
The Dark Wind Valley was connected to the Lion King Mountain Range. In fact, it was an extension of the Lion King Mountain Range and also an incredibly hazardous place. All around the year, it was covered by a layer of dark mist that was impossible to see through. Looking down from the middle of the sky, Qin Wushuang only saw the thick fog and found himself incapable of seeing the details inside the valley.
He could only sense a general silhouette of the Dark Wind Valley. Indeed, this valley was a treacherous place. It was extremely vast and he could not see its end.
"The place Mr. Lu Xianlou has marked out does not seem to be ordinary at all. Let's fly lower and see exactly how this Dark Wind Valley looks."
As Qin Wushuang spoke, he lowered his wings slightly and dropped above the Dark Wind Valley. However, Bao Bao laughed: "Boss, could it be that you cannot see what's inside the valley?"
"You can see?" Qin Wushuang was surprised.
Like the suddenly ignited torch, surges of strange red lights glowed from Bao Bao's pupils. This red light seemed to reveal strong penetration power. As it shone, it allowed him to see clearly the scenery hidden within the fog surrounding the Dark Wind Valley.
Bao Bao said: "Boss, I can see clearly. Lone, can you see?"
"My vision is blurry, how could I see anything? There are only layers of fog."
Bao Bao was somewhat surprised: "Boss, I can see, really."
Seeing such strange lights flashed from Bao Bao's eyes, Qin Wushuang did not find it strange and said: "Bao Bao, which stage have you trained your "Pupil Attachment Skill" to?"
Upon hearing the three words "Pupil Attachment Skill", Bao Bao had suddenly realized the light. He slapped his thigh and said: "Boss, I remembered. When I was practicing the "Pupil Attachment Skill" below the Wild Flame Cliff, each time I felt my vision was becoming clearer, two strange firelights flashed in my eyes. Could this be the Open Divine Stage of the skill?"
The initial stages of the "Pupil Attachment Skill" was only the simple pupil attachment technique. When one climbed up the stages, the skill would allow the user to activate the Open Divine Eyes. This level would allow the martial artist in training to achieve a set of even more outrageous pupil techniques.
For a spiritual beast as abnormal as Bao Bao, he had utilized the unique terrain of the Wild Flame Cliff and acquired the Fire Pupil Vision. The power of these divine pupils were extraordinary.
Not only would he be capable of seeing thousands of miles ahead, he could see in the dark as well as he could during daylight. He could see through the river to the riverbed and wall. Of course, such pupils would allow him to penetrate the fog and see the situation within the Dark Wind Valley.
Despite practicing the "Pupil Attachment Skill" at the same time, Lone hadn't acquired the same level of skill. Of course, it had to do with their bloodlines. Most importantly, this "Pupil Attachment Skill" had fit with Bao Bao's body conditions. This was why he was able to achieve such an outrageous level in a short period.
Qin Wushuang felt extremely gratified as he said to Bao Bao: "Bao Bao, could it be your vision is not affected at all?"
"Boss, compared to the field of view on the outside, certainly there are some differences. But I can see within this Dark Wind Valley clearly."
"Ok, Bao Bao, you shall lead the way." Qin Wushuang was overjoyed. He had an instinct about this Dark Wind Valley. He felt that this place was not ordinary and important secrets were hidden within here. Perhaps, this secret was a form of endowment from Lu Xianlou to him.
Bao Bao took the lead and brought Qin Wushuang and his group to descend inside the Dark Wind Valley. Before they had walked a few steps, suddenly, a gust carrying a fishy smell blew at them.
Next, a giant tongue whipped at Qin Wushuang's chest while trying to pull him in and sending out a piercing stench.
A giant striped spiritual beast, or seemingly a giant spiritual beast in a form of lizard-like monster tried to kill them while sending spittle flying.
Qin Wushuang had been cautious all the way. With the fishy smell having warned them, how could he fall to it? He waved the Hegemon Breaking Formation Spear into a giant circular arc to protect his own body.
With his other hand, he took aim with his fingers and shot five or six Gang Sword attacks of the Coagulated Sword at it.
With the continuous popping sounds it evoked an incredibly muffled thumps like arrows having hit leather.
Although that monster had a giant body, its movements were not rigid. It shook its heads a few times and blocked the power of the Gang Sword with his powerful naked body.
Despite the Gang Sword's swift and powerful motions, it could only graze the flesh of this monster. It was apparent to see the terrifying physical defense of this monster!
After getting grazed by Qin Wushuang's Gang Sword attacks, that monster's anger was aroused. It faced upwards and gave a hoarse shout. Then, it opened its bloody mouth and exhaled a gust of black air. Seemingly resembling poisonous fog, it surged at Qin Wushuang.
Naturally, within such a close distance, Qin Wushuang had a clear look at the monster.
He immediately flicked his wings to avoid the black air shooting at him. That monster faced upwards to give a roaring cry and stood up.
Once it stood up, Qin Wushuang immediately felt a surge of coldness. Indeed, the body of this monster was gigantic. It was as tall as a five-floored building from his previous world. One could not call it a giant python as it was revealed to have distinctive hands and feet. And if one called it a lizard, it had a matchless ferocity that no lizards would possess.
This monster roared to the sky and revealed two rows of teeth as sharp as blades. Through it chomping motions, it shot out a dozen teeth lights from two sides of his teeth that had resembled sword intents. The lights formed into a scissor like attack to cut at Qin Wushuang.
Inwardly, Qin Wushuang praised the exceptional skill of this bastard. Yet, he did not dare to make light of the attacks as he flew to the middle of the sky with his wings. For the moment, he did not dare to dive down recklessly.
He realized that most likely, this monster was tougher to deal with than Luo Zhan.
