ETERNAL MARTIAL EMPEROR, VOLUME 7 - Season 20 Episode 73
Tang Ziyi had a good plan. She wanted to make use of the burst of the Immortal Whale Sound to fight for a chance of survival and break out of the encirclement.
However, the Eyeless Fishes only possessed the sense of smell and no hearing.
Although the burst of the Immortal Whale Sound was strong, it did not affect the Eyeless Fishes at all!
Tang Ziyi’s expression was unchanged as electric arcs burst forth from her body and gathered rapidly behind her, forming a pair of thunder wings!
Amidst the lightning and thunder, Tang Ziyi soared into the air once more at an extremely fast speed. Before the thousands of Eyeless Fishes surrounded her, she broke out of the encirclement and sped towards the lone island!
For Black Immortals, even if they flew in the air, the height they could climb was limited and the highest was only 90 feet.
However, with the help of her thunder wings, Tang Ziyi was able to reach a height of more than 100 feet and her movement technique’s speed had even doubled!
After obtaining the Thunder Emperor’s inheritance, Su Zimo recognized at a glance that this was a secret skill of the Void Thunder Manual, the Zephyr Thunder Wings.
Cultivating the Zephyr Thunder Wings was equivalent to obtaining the legacy of the Void Thunder Manual.
Previously, Su Zimo had already vaguely guessed that Tang Ziyi might be related to the Thunder Emperor. Now, his guess was confirmed.
On the other side, the fat and skinny old men narrowed their eyes slightly with cold expressions when they saw that.
The two of them exchanged glances without saying anything.
Another ripple appeared above the lake after Tang Ziyi released her Zephyr Thunder Wings!
Suddenly, the lake split open and a gigantic black shadow broke through the water surface. Like an anaconda that was dozens of feet long, it whipped towards Tang Ziyi with a layer of mist!
The black shadow was too fast and arrived almost instantly.
When Tang Ziyi used her Zephyr Thunder Wings, her speed was extremely shocking as well. By the time she realized, it was already too late for her to dodge.
Tang Ziyi felt a large black shadow envelop her and could only prop up her arms and circulate her blood qi to defend.
Compared to the black shadow, Tang Ziyi looked extremely petite.
There was a dull thud!
Tang Ziyi shuddered and lightning burst forth from her body as her blood qi surged. However, she could not withstand the tremendous force of the black shadow and was sent flying, falling from midair.
She spat out a mouthful of blood.
This clash caused a huge impact and shock to her organs.
The Zephyr Thunder Wings behind her were shattered by the black shadow and almost dissipated!
“It looks like the Scarlet Black Squid. To think that such a ferocious demon beast would be nurtured in this lake!”
At the same time, the surface of the lake boiled and gigantic thick tentacles tore through the surface of the lake, chasing after Tang Ziyi who was in midair.
On the tentacles were circular suction cups the size of basins that squirmed continuously in a terrifying manner!
Instantly, hundreds of tentacles danced wildly in midair with a frightening might!
The cultivators around the lake were scared out of their wits and retreated one after another, afraid that they would be sucked into the lake by the tentacles.
The moment Tang Ziyi fell, a thousand Eyeless Fishes leaped up, wanting to devour her flesh.
She could only barely hold on with her damaged Zephyr Thunder Wings.
But now, she could not defend against the encirclement of hundreds of terrifying tentacles from the Scarlet Black Squid!
The hundreds of tentacles squirmed and almost formed an impenetrable space, trapping Tang Ziyi within!
Even though she was about to die in the beast’s mouth, Tang Ziyi’s expression did not change much.
However, she sighed internally.
‘Sigh, I failed to obtain an utmost treasure of that level at the end of the day.’
‘A moment of greed cost me my life. I can’t blame anyone.’
Countless thoughts flashed through her mind before she died.
“Let’s go. There’s no way we can cross this lone island with this Scarlet Black Squid guarding it.”
“Time to go.”
Many cultivators shook their heads. Although they were reluctant, they could only leave helplessly.
“Who is that?”
Right then, a cultivator caught sight of a figure flash past from the corner of his eye and charged towards the lone island!
“He truly has a death wish. How dare he charge over!”
“Fufu, to think that someone would be so eager to die.”
Everyone sneered when they saw that figure.
The fat and skinny old mens’ group quickly recognized that it was Su Zimo!
When Su Zimo arrived at the edge of the lake, a pair of Essence Qi wings appeared behind him.
Immediately after, an even wider pair of golden wings grew on the wings, shining brightly!
Two pairs of wings flapped and Su Zimo transformed into a golden streak of light. His speed was at its limits and had even surpassed the reaction of most of the cultivators present!
“What secret skill is that? It seems to be even faster than that woman’s movement technique!”
The crowd exclaimed.
Before the hundreds of tentacles were sealed, the golden light passed through a small crack and arrived beside Tang Ziyi.
“It was you?”
Initially, Tang Ziyi thought that she would definitely die. However, she did not expect Su Zimo to barge in as well.
“What are you doing here?!”
Tang Ziyi glared at Su Zimo.
“To pluck the Seven Glow Immortal Ginseng, of course,”
Pausing for a moment, Su Zimo smiled. “And also… to save you along the way.”
“Are you crazy?”
Tang Ziyi looked at Su Zimo as though she was looking at a lunatic. “Didn’t you see what happened earlier on? Even Earth Immortals can’t defend against the power of this Scarlet Black Squid. Hurry and leave!”
The two of them were surrounded by hundreds of tentacles in a cramped space that was almost sealed. There were only a few small gaps and the light was dim.
Suddenly, their surroundings fell into darkness.
There was no gap left in the space formed by hundreds of tentacles!
“Now, there’s no way to leave even if you want to,”
In the darkness, Tang Ziyi lowered her head slightly and sighed.
Suddenly, she felt her waist tighten and a strong arm wrap around her.
Her body stiffened.
If it was any other time, she would have killed him long ago.
However, at that moment, she was in despair. At the thought that the two of them were about to be buried here, she let this man’s rude actions go.
Right then, Su Zimo’s voice sounded in her ears.
Tang Ziyi felt her vision blur, as though space was in chaos. She lost track of time and light reappeared.
Composing herself, she focused her gaze and could not help but freeze on the spot.
The two of them had already broken free from the encirclement of the Scarlet Black Squid and arrived above the lake!
“It’s that secret skill!”
Tang Ziyi’s eyes lit up and she reacted quickly.
Back in the Ten Absolute Hell, she tried to assassinate Su Zimo but he seized the initiative because of this unpredictable secret skill that was almost like teleportation!
Su Zimo hugged Tang Ziyi and the Roc wings behind him flapped. With a flash of golden light, he covered 500 kilometers in the blink of an eye and left the Scarlet Black Squid behind.
By the time the Scarlet Black Squid beneath the lake reacted, Su Zimo and Tang Ziyi had already arrived on the lone island.
