ETERNAL MARTIAL EMPEROR, VOLUME 7 - Season 20 Episode 75
Although there was no pain, the feeling was way too terrifying and despairing!
In the upper world, one had to cultivate to become an Earth Immortal before they could regrow their limbs and become a Heaven Immortal.
But now, Su Zimo was only a Grade 9 Black Immortal.
Furthermore, not a single drop of blood appeared after he was devoured by the darkness—even if a Heaven Immortal came, it would be useless!
In the darkness, the only light was the immortal ginseng that emitted a rainbow glow.
At that moment, even the immortal ginseng that was initially filled with exuberant lifeforce looked demonic in Su Zimo’s eyes.
‘Could that power of darkness be released by the Seven Glow Immortal Ginseng?’
‘What should I do? Is the Green Lotus True Body truly going to die here today?’
Die Yue and the Human Emperor had told him that the upper world was even more dangerous than Tianhuang Mainland!
After he ascended to the upper world, he encountered countless life and death dangers and almost died each time!
In more than a thousand years, he had not even ventured out of a single region of the Heavenly World, the Nine Firmament Immortal Domain, let alone explore the vast trichiliocosm.
Countless thoughts flashed through Su Zimo’s mind and he felt indignant.
Instantly, darkness enveloped him and devoured his figure whole!
Suddenly, Su Zimo’s left eye turned pitch-black and his pupil disappeared. Instead, a gigantic pitch-black vortex appeared with a cold aura.
The power released by Su Zimo’s left eye was extremely similar to the power of darkness in the surroundings.
In fact, it was even purer and more condensed!
It was the Nether Glow Stone!
Nobody knew the origin of the Nether Glow Stone.
There were rumors that the stone came from the upper world.
Some people said that the stone came from an illusory major chiliocosm!
However, no matter what, the stone did possess the power of extreme darkness and was even devouring the surrounding darkness!
As the power of darkness in his body disappeared, Su Zimo’s figure reappeared!
Only, the absorption speed of the Nether Glow Stone was extremely slow.
However, the darkness of power surged over continuously and the Nether Glow Stone could not devour and refine all the power of darkness.
With that, the corrosion of darkness and the devouring by the Nether Glow created a temporary balance within Su Zimo’s body.
Although Su Zimo’s figure appeared, it was only a portion of it!
To be precise, only a jade green skeleton was revealed!
This skeleton was created by Su Zimo using the Creation Green Lotus back in the underground palace of Tianhuang Mainland.
Although the bones were still present, the flesh on them had vanished completely, devoured by the darkness.
On the other side, Tang Ziyi looked at the darkness ahead with a dim gaze.
As an assassin, she had to have a cold-blooded heart and not be restrained by emotions or external objects!
The two of them had not known each other for long. Initially, Tang Ziyi thought that Su Zimo was just a slightly special passerby in her life.
However, at that moment, when she saw Su Zimo buried in the darkness, she felt a sadness that she had not felt for many years.
In that instance, countless images of her interactions with Su Zimo flashed through her mind.
To her surprise, she realized that she had spoken to this person more than everything she had spoken in the past few hundred years.
As Tang Ziyi thought about it, a layer of mist gradually appeared in her eyes.
Right then, a jade green glow shone on the mist in her eyes.
Tang Ziyi looked up instinctively.
Tang Ziyi’s expression changed as she exclaimed.
The scene before her was way too shocking!
Two different lights shone in the darkness.
Right at the front was the seven rays of light released by the Seven Glow Immortal Ginseng.
Ten feet away from the Seven Glow Immortal Ginseng stood a human-shaped skeleton. It was jade green and emitted a resplendent glow, filled with vitality as it fought against the surrounding darkness!
Tang Ziyi could not help but call out softly.
However, the path ahead was shrouded by darkness and even sound would be devoured instantly.
“He’s not dead?”
Tang Ziyi’s expression turned nervous.
If she had not seen it with her own eyes, she would not have imagined that a cultivator’s bones would grow to such an extent.
More than that, she could not imagine that although the flesh on the skeleton had vanished, it still emitted a tremendous amount of lifeforce!
In the darkness.
Su Zimo could vaguely sense that the power of darkness around him was gathering.
The absorption speed of the Nether Glow Stone was far inferior to the speed of darkness condensation!
If he continued to linger in the darkness, even the Nether Glow Stone would not be able to protect him!
Instinctively, Su Zimo moved.
Immediately after, he was delighted.
That was because the Nether Glow Stone absorbed the power of darkness in his body and allowed him to regain some freedom.
Although his movement was slow within the darkness, at the very least, he was not immobile as before!
Su Zimo was prepared to leave the darkness.
However, his gaze suddenly landed on the immortal ginseng that was emitting a rainbow glow.
Since I’ve already come this far, I might as well take the gamble!
A decisive look flashed through Su Zimo’s eyes as he made a decision instantly.
His flesh had already been devoured by the darkness and it would be a huge loss if he retreated just like that.
He did not know how long it would take for his flesh to regrow.
Furthermore, he was just a skeleton that was neither human nor ghost right now.
If anyone saw it, it would be easy to expose the secret of the Green Lotus True Body.
At that thought, Su Zimo’s gaze intensified as he extended his arm slowly and grabbed the Seven Glow Immortal Ginseng.
He was ten feet away from the Seven Glow Immortal Ginseng and his arm could not reach it at all.
Suddenly, the bones of Su Zimo’s arm expanded by ten feet and his jade green bone palm grabbed the Seven Glow Immortal Ginseng instantly!
Su Zimo hollered and exerted strength in his arm, pulling the Seven Glow Immortal Ginseng out of the ground!
There was a large amount of mud on the roots.
Pulling out the Seven Glow Immortal Ginseng created a huge pit on the ground.
Su Zimo grabbed the Seven Glow Immortal Ginseng and was about to retreat when his gaze inadvertently swept past the pit and paused.
He focused his gaze and looked for a moment. As though he recalled something, he shuddered.
The surrounding power of darkness surged and turned even colder and purer!
Su Zimo’s breathing turned extremely heavy and his bones creaked.
He did not dare to hesitate and retreated continuously.
After he retreated dozens of feet away, the power of darkness gradually dissipated and surged into the pit.
What happened earlier seemed like an illusion.
However, Su Zimo had experienced it personally and could deeply understand how terrifying that power of darkness was!
The surrounding bushes disappeared completely.
A radius of a hundred feet turned into a vacuum!
If not for the Nether Glow Stone, he would have vanished from this world completely like the bushes!
