SON OF GOD IN THE CITY - Season 12 Episode 25
“Yes brother Ning, that level five spirit beast is strong but it’s only level five primary stage. We are all foundation establishment state level nine and with this rune of mine, we can subdue it.” Duan Yitai took out a level six ice shard rune.
Ye Mo nodded, with the sneak attack of a level six ice shard rune, it could indeed injure a level five primary stage beast. If they then attacked it together, it would be fine. But as a nascent soul state cultivator, all he needed was one slap to kill a level five beast.
But Ye Mo didn’t reject this, he didn’t know where the Zhou River Swamp was, and according to what Li Jilei said, it seemed that the area of the swamp was quite large. It might take a long time for him to find it himself. He might as well go with them.
Seeing that Ye Mo agreed, Duan Yitai and them were very happy and wanted to leave immediately.
To Ye Mo, the faster the better. Mang Mountain Town wasn’t far from the Great Zhou Mountain. The spirit chi was so arid here, how could there be high level spirit herbs? So Ye Mo had great anticipations for the spirit herbs that Li Jilei spoke of.
What Ye Mo didn’t expect was that when he came out with Duan Yitai and them, the scar faced female cultivator had already left. She wasn’t in his spirit sense range – clearly, she had left the town.
The swamp wasn’t far from the town but it wasn’t close either. Ye Mo would only need two hours by himself, but following Duan Yitai, it took him a day and a half before he got near there.
It was an endless swamp, there were sometimes putrid smells. It was very hard to imagine that this place was an ancient spirit herb garden.
When Ye Mo reached his spirit sense inside here, there was nothing. He found that his spirit sense only had about 200km range inside this swamp. His spirit sense was restricted. Only formations and some special regions could limit spirit sense.
“If things go well, we should be able to smell the herb aroma if we stand here at midday. Me and my friends walked 50km east from here before we met that level five spirit beast,” Li Jilei pointed at the swamp and said.
“This swamp has a powerful suction force, the deeper you go, the more powerful it is. If we go in together then even if we have the ice pick rune, we’re no match for that spirit beast,” Duan Yitai said.
That monk Lu Xi said, “Brother Duan, you have a lot of tactics, just tell us what to do.”
Duan Yitai smiled and saluted with his fists. “In that case I’ll be straightforward. Inside is a Three Horned Swamp Crocodile. It’s easily angered. I have a level five acceleration rune, we should send one of us who is fast and use the rune to enrage the spirit beast and draw it out. Once it’s at the outskirts, the other three will ambush the crocodile.”
Then, he said as though in embarrassment, “I’m an earth style cultivator. I’m very slow, otherwise I can do this job well.”
“How about I go, although I’m wood element, but I should be fine with brother Duan’s level five acceleration rune,” Lu Xi suddenly said.
Li Jilei shook his head. “No, your build is too big, even with the rune it would be very hard for you.”
Ye Mo heard this and sneered, what did having a big figure have to do with acceleration rune? He was sure that it wasn’t the first time these guys came here. They dragged him here for him to attract the spirit beast. Simply put, they were sending him to die.
Using a foundation establishment state cultivator to lure a level five spirit beast, this was suicide! Ye Mo was sure that even if he didn’t agree, these three might have some other way.
But Ye Mo never intended on working with these guys. Just when he wanted to go in alone, he smelled a faint herb aroma.
“It’s midday, do you guys smell the herb aroma?” Li Jilei asked excitedly.
Lu Xi and Duan Yitai all nodded.
This time, Ye Mo didn’t want to wait for these guys to play any tricks so he said, “I’ll go, my flying means are pretty decent.”
Then, Ye Mo charged into the swamp without the acceleration rune. He knew the herb aroma only lasted 15 minutes, he didn’t dare to waste time at all.
Hearing that Ye Mo would go, the three all rejoiced, but before they could say anything Ye Mo went in already.
“Wait, the acceleration rune…” Duan Yitai said but Ye Mo was already gone.
“Brother Duan what do we do? He didn’t take the acceleration rune,” Li Jilei said disappointedly.
Lu Xi shook his head. “This guy wants to die, let’s go back and find someone else.”
Duan Yitai sighed, “This Ning Xiaoma is probably the best person for the job, he charged in without hesitation after sensing the herb aroma, he’s clearly a greedy cultivator. Pity, he didn’t take our acceleration rune, even if he dies, it won’t benefit us at all.”
Then he thought for a moment and said, “Let’s wait here for a while, we might get something unexpected.”
Ye Mo didn’t know that Duan Yitai did something to the acceleration rune but even if he did, it was pointless.
Ye Mo was a pill king, he had even seen the level nine spirit herb 9-color lotus, but the herb aroma that floated in his nose was at least level nine or above.
Above level nine was immortal herb, Ye Mo didn’t even dare to imagine what was there. Of course Ye Mo didn’t have the mood to chat with these few foundation establishment state cultivator so he charged in.
Ye Mo walked less than 200km and saw the level five spirit beast. Clearly, what Duan Yitai said was completely wrong. This level five spirit beast was just an ordinary spirit beast in the swamp. It had nothing to do with the herb aroma. The only thing was that it was on the way to the herb aroma.
Even if they killed this spirit beast, they wouldn’t be able to see the herb garden.
The spirit beast was level five but when it saw Ye Mo’s momentum, it didn’t even dare to move.
Ye Mo didn’t do anything to the beast and just charged over it, disappearing in the depth of the swamp.
The deeper he went inside, the greater the suction force, so Ye Mo began to slow down.
After another 500km, the herb aroma grew faint. Ye Mo estimated that the time was up so he sped up.
With a thud, a python that was 100 meters long shot out from the swamp and charged at Ye Mo spitting a black water arrow at him.
Clearly, Ye Mo passing over his terrain like nothing was here enraged it.
Ye Mo was shook, he focused on flying and didn’t notice this python. It was a level six peak stage swamp python.
It was powerful, but not yet level seven or Ye Mo would have to run.
Without hesitation, Ye Mo released the solo octagonal cauldron. Ye Mo had finished spirit controlling three levels of restriction, so it was much easier to use than before.
Ye Mo even released Zi Xu.
The octagonal cauldron spun rapidly above his head and formed countless cauldron images that blocked the water arrow.
The python didn’t seem to expect his enraged attack to be blocked so easily, but before it could make another move, Zi Xu hacked out. Like a purple fire work, the purple sword rays swooped the python as they increased in number.
The python began to panic and waved its tail like crazy. Powerful beast cultivation essence clashed with Ye Mo’s purple sword rays.
Moments later, the python had tens of scars after a few scales came off.
The python was furious and hissed before shooting out countless dark water arrows. The water arrows carried sharp beast essence and a putrid smell. It was on par with Ye Mo’s purple sword rays.
But the octagonal cauldron was too powerful and with Ye Mo’s powerful cultivation essence and spirit sense, the water arrows only rung the cauldron.
