The Charm of Soul Pets - Chapters Chapter 1252: Precipice Fissure, Second Demonic Burial Mound!
From far away, Chu Mu had seen an enormous and loft precipice!
It was impossible to see the scenery on top of the precipice. The precipice extended into the clouds and it was possible to imagine that the inner island of the Demonic Burial Mound was an island above the clouds – a genuine paradise.
The closer he got to the Second Demonic Burial Mound, the more Chu Mu’s heart kept sinking. He knew Night wasn’t far from him, but when he thought of his static state that resembled a being without any life force, he felt an increasingly distasteful taste.
“Young master, we can’t pass through this precipice to the inner island.” said Old Li.
“Why not?” asked Chu Mu.
“This precipice is extremely tall and the lowest ranked creatures that live on it are emperors. There are countless numbers of them. Aside from this, I just discovered that every 2000 meters we climb, a dominator rank creature will appear. The dominator rank creature will be around the middle or high class dominator rank.”
“Young master, a thousand emperors are capable of posing a threat to a high class dominator, let alone ten thousand… I just estimated that if we want to pass through this second precipice, we need to be at least of the immortal rank.” said Old LI.
“The immortal rank is the rank above the dominator rank?” asked Chu Mu.
“Yes, this rank has a lot of names, for example heavenly life rank, saint pilgrimage rank, approaching immortal rank, chronic ancient rank… the reason for heavenly rank is because a creature of this rank possesses the life force of the heavens, saint pilgrimage refers to the ruling status of this rank since they don’t command empires, but entire enormous soul pet dynasties.” said Old Li.
“Doesn’t immortal refer to undying?” asked Chu Mu.
Old Li stretched out a finger and shook it. He continued: “Immortal is immortal. Undying is undying. An immortal rank creature has an extremely long life span and unless something unexpected occurs, they will normally be able to live for several thousand or up to ten thousand years. “Heavenly life” is just an exaggerated nickname, but “immortal” is real. When they die, their bodies will not rot and after they are buried, they will chronically exist throughout time because there is no parasite in this world that can decompose their bodies.”
“Legends say that once an immortal rank creature dies, if a suitable place can be found to bury it, it can undergo an extremely long deep sleep of death and wake up after and live again. Is this true?” asked the adjacent Princess Jinrou.
“Then the so-called undying rank is the rank above the immortal rank?” asked Chu Mu.
Chu Mu hadn’t even touched the immortal rank yet. This rank was as high above him as the enormous and lofty Demonic Burial Mound in front of him. Even if he could admire it, it still exerted enormous pressure.
But as for how strong an immortal rank creature was, Chu Mu really wanted to know.
“Yes. The undying rank is essentially called the god rank. In human history and knowledge, only five creatures have reached this rank…”
“Hades, Yellow Spring, Inferno, Underworld, Limbo.” Chu MU slowly recited thee names of the five undying legends.
Chu Mu had only known that these five undying legends were very strong. But now that he could could compare them to a complete rank, Chu Mu became even more clear of how strong they were!
“Let’s not talk about something so far away. Chu Mu, your soul pet is in the second Demonic Burial Mound?” Xia Zhixian interrupted their conversation.
A demon had to be at least of the high class dominator rank in order to challenge the second Demonic Burial Mound. Moreover, from Old Li’s words just now, it was impossible to pass through the second Demonic Burial Mound’s precipice without reaching the immortal rank.
“Chu Mu, your Night has reached the high class dominator rank?” asked Princess Jinrou.
“Probably.” Chu Mu nodded his head.
The resources in Demonic Burial Mound were enormous, and Night innately was a nomadic demon. Even if it hadn’t snatched xuan items for itself, its strength would still be able to greatly increase.
And since Night had challenged the second Demonic Burial Mound, to a certain extent this meant the middle island’s resources no longer satisfied its strength increase.
Chu Mu himself felt that it was inconceivable that Night would be able to enter this rank alone. Most importantly, it had probably been a period of time now since it had challenged the second Demonic Burial Mound. He himself hadn’t reached the high class dominator rank yet then.
“Demonic Burial Mound is hell for demons, but it is also paradise for them. As long as they are able to survive, their strength will increase to an unbelievably extent…” said Old Li.
“But it clearly hasn’t reached the immortal rank. Why did it challenge the second Demonic Burial Mound?” asked Princess Jinrou, confused.
“The king in its heart…” Chu Mu muttered to himself.
Princess Jinrou looked with confusion at Chu Mu. A trace of bitterness appeared on Chu Mu’s face. He didn’t say anything. Instead, he just stepped forwards towards the precipice.
“Chu Mu, the precipice is too dangerous at our current strengths.” Sang Ying hastily called out to stop Chu Mu.
Just from hearing that there were tens of thousands of emperors and numerous dominators protecting the precipice, a trace of fear emerged in Sang Ying’s heart towards this towering precipice. He obviously didn’t have the courage to challenge it.
“It’s not that it’s impossible to cross this Demonic Burial Mound precipice. The lord of the island opened a path in the Demonic Burial Mound precipice to allow for creatures that aren’t of the immortal rank to pass. However, this path is very difficult to find and it is also ridden with dangers. If you go, it is a path of nine deaths and one life.” said Old Li.
But Chu Mu had already begun walking towards the Demonic Burial Mound precipice. The others had no choice but to follow him.
Chu Mu walked up to the base of the precipice and used his hands to feel the sturdy and cold rock.
“It’s inside.” slowly said Chu Mu.
“Inside. You’re talking about inside this precipice?” asked Prince Chao.
“The rock is extremely sturdy and a dominator rank will only be able to smash a few small cracks on the rock.” said Xia Zhixian.
“I”ll go in and look?” Princess Jinrou floated over and her spectral body slowly entered the sturdy rock.
However, after entering halfway, she was unable to enter further. It was like an object was stuck there that prevented specters from entering.
“There’s a barrier half a meter through the rock.” Princess Jinrou stepped out and spoke to everyone.
“This should be the path that permits creatures not of the immortal rank.” Old Li rubbed his beard and spoke.
Chu Mu looked at Mo Xie on his shoulders who understood Chu Mu’s intentions. She jumped off of his shoulders.
“Shua!! Shua!! Shua!! Shua!!”
Four blades of cold light flashed through the air and the small Mo Xie rapidly cut out a door shape in the thick rock.
Afterwards, Mo Xie blew with her mouth, shattering the door-shape rock.
The rock shattered to the ground and indeed, halfway through, there was a brown colored energy barrier blocking their sight.
“This barrier isn’t weak…” said Sang Ying.
Just then, Mo Xie walked forward up to the barrier and softly scratched with her claws.
The barrier was easily ripped apart like a brown colored paper. Mo Xie didn’t exert much strength.
Princess Jinrou, Chao Lengchuan, and Xia Zhixian were all used to this, but the adjacent Sang Ying’s mouth was opened wide with shock. He swallowed the words he was about to speak.
“Wu wu wu”
After ripping open the barrier, Mo Xie turned around to tell Chu Mu that the inside of the barrier was empty. There was a single pitch-black path that they could follow.
Chu Mu walked in and discovered the inside wasn’t a cave. Instead, it was a long fissure that was opened from outside the precipice to inside. The bottom of the fissure was the widest, while the top of the fissure was slowly closing in together.
This fissure extended to the depths of the precipice as if it was leading somewhere.
Chu Mu began to scout the inside, while the small Mo Xie, after completing her mission, jumped back onto Chu Mu’s shoulders. Her tail wrapped around his neck and she narrowed her eyes as if she was about to go back to sleep.
Chu Mu looked at this small fellow that had climbed back up to go back to sleep. He bitterly laughed.
Chu Mu poked Mo Xie’s forehead and said: “How lazy have you gotten. Don’t sleep. Go in front and scout the path.”
“Wu wu wu wu”
Mo Xie unwillingly jumped off. A purple flame emerged on her body as she depressedly walked in front.
“There are definitely strong creatures inside. When the time comes, it will be you who fights.” added Chu Mu.
Mo Xie’s silver eyes instantly lit up, and her steps were no longer as heavy. She lifted up her nine small tails and broke into a small run towards the depths of the precipice fissure.
“Chu Mu, your small house pet is really interesting.” laughed Sang Ying.
“Small house pet?” next to him, Xia Zhixian turned to look at Sang Ying.
Sang Ying felt confused, and when he discovered that Prince Chao was also looking at him, he rubbed his forehead and said: “Did I say something wrong?”
A small house pet meant it didn’t have any fighting strength. These pets were mainly used as ornaments or were weak pets with special uses.
From when Sang Ying initially met Chu Mu, the small fellow had spent most of her time lying on his shoulders and sleeping. In the soul pet world, a small creature that looked harmless, domesticated, innocent, and adorable normally had no fighting strength. They would rely on their appearance to obtain the protection of even stronger creatures.
Sang Ying had never seen Chu Mu’s small fox fight, and thus believed Chu Mu had decided to raise a small house pet in his free time.
“The small house pet you’re talking about is the soul pet that completely oppressed Seventh Rank Realm Lord Li Xu.” said Prince Chao.
“You’re talking about the Nine Tailed Fox Noble?” Sang Ying was stunned.
Sang Ying remembered hearing that Chu Mu had an ultra strong Nine Tailed Fox Noble. In the independence fight, it had relied on its overwhelmingly superior attacks to defeat the seventh rank realm’s realm lord!
When he had just seen Mo Xie easily rip open the rock and barrier, Sang Ying mistakenly believed that the small fellow that spent most of her time sleeping on Chu Mu’s shoulder was a small house pet with a special ability. He never expected that this extremely delicate and adorable small fox was the Nine Tailed Fox Noble whose name had crazily spread through Cloud Realm!
