The Charm of Soul Pets - Chapters Chapter 1253: Walk with Death, Corpse Type Burial Mound
Chu Mu guessed that they were entering around ten kilometers of the precipice. If they hadn’t entered from the crack, the ten kilometers of rock was something a dominator rank organism couldn’t possibly get through.
After entering the rock wall, Chu Mu started feeling Night get closer and closer.
The empty ground started going upwards. Mo Xie’s purple flames lit up the cold walls aside, but the night was so silent only their footsteps could be heard.
“Why does it feel like there’s nothing.” Prince Chao felt it was too quiet and spoke.
“Let’s use mental voice to communicate.” Xia Zhixian’s vigilance was rather strong.
This was the inner side of the precipice. If there are organisms with powerful hearing, their speech could be heard from hundreds of kilometers out.
Chu Mu didn’t believe its a completely safe place because where Mo Xie’s fire lit up, there were some bones that clearly weren’t low rank.
As the elevation slowly rose, there seemed to be a roundabout that brought them closer and closer to Night.
“There seems to be something above us.” Sang Ying said with mental remembrance.
After passing the long, upwards, and roundabout terrain, the land ahead started opening up as if they entered an underground hall.
After entering the region, Chu Mu felt like the underground courtyard could be more accurately described as an underground burial mound because the space was filled with countless corpses.
Mo Xie’s purple firelight shined through, causing the entire burial mound to shien purple.
The burial mound was massive, with nearly a five kilometer diameter. Humans feel very tiny.
Soul pet territory has many massive organisms, so five kilometer long wasn’t a strange scene.
However, what confused Chu Mu was why the corpses on the ground were all rotten to different extents. Some were already fossilized, while some had barely lost their skin……
“Huh, there’s text here.” Princess Jin Rou floated over to a plaque at the center of the place.
There was a ring around the rock that sank into the ground like a channel, flowing with black but unknown liquid.
Princess Jin Rou was pretty familiar with most ancient texts so, while she was deciphering it, she also translated the contents and read it out loud.
“Living creatures who enter here, walk with death!”
Prince Chao stuck his head over and said confused, “Walk with death? Why does this sound like something a crazy witch would say?”
“I translated it to our language as best I could.” Princess Jin Rou said.
“You two stop talking for a second.” Chu Mu said to them.
Princess Jin Rou was about to ask in confusion when her sharp senses suddenly caught something.
She caught herself from speaking and started looking around.
Some small sounds came from the silent burial mound!
Using Mo Xie’s firelight, Princess JIn ROu suddenly noticed that the corpses and bones on the ground were moving!
Princess Jin Rou and Prince Chao’s expressions immediately turned strange as they carefully leaped out of the rock area.
The places they passed by had corpses too, all of which were moving and letting out creaks from their incomplete joints.
Prince Chao jumped over the pile of moving bones and stood by Chu Mu again. Princess JIn Rou hid behind Chu Mu’s back, her spirited eyes showing a slight bit of panic.
Chu Mu glanced at Princess Jin Rou and joked, “You’re an undead too, why are you afraid?”
Princess Jin Rou gave him a stare and rolled her eyes. Why did this guy never know how to talk?
“The correct translation is probably ‘battle with the undead’, right” Chu Mu glanced at the corpses starting to reconstruct and asked.
Clearly, the moving corpses are all undead organisms that guard this burial ground and forbid other organisms from passing through.
Corpse type organisms have always been known to be disgusting and fierce. They live only in very special circumstances. The most powerful corpse type organism that Chu Mu ever encountered would probably be the Marsh Fish Devil back in Guangtong Swamp.
The sound of bones hitting the ground came. Just three thousand meters from where Chu Mu stood, a large group of bones started gathering towards one direction. From the feet, to the torso and chest and finally to the skull, slowly these bones created a stumbling bone dragon.
The bone dragon’s body was wobbly, clearly losing some important parts of its skeleton. However, even so, this bone dragon seemed hard to deal with.
“There’s a tunnel over there. Let’s not stay around for too long.” Xia Zhixian glanced at the bone dragon and said.
The same moment the bone dragon appeared, they were also getting surrounded by more and more corpse type organisms. They all shook their bodies and stared with their hollow eyes at the only living creatures around.
Corpse type organisms have a natural thirst for life, especially the corpses with missing body parts. Only eating living creatures could they satisfy the missing parts in their body.
Going from vacant to cruel and greedy, the corpses around Chu Mu started numbering in the thousands. Many of them were previously dominator rank organisms, so they were at least emperor rank now. The bone dragon at the exit was high class dominator rank.
“Mo Xie, open a path.” Chu Mu said to Mo Xie.
Mo Xie’s body started burning purple as its powerful body opened up!
Purple flames came out from its hooves and the corpse organisms were forced onto the ground before they could even cast a single technique, falling back onto the ground as a group of scattered corpses.
Nine tails suddenly swept over. The few hundred corpses in front of them were all swept away, falling like a storm far away.
“Chu Mu, your nine tail fox supreme truly is powerful.” Sang Ying looked at the waves of corpses and said enviously.
Those corpses are all emperor ranks, not any weaker than the navy people they met before. However, Chu Mu’s fox supreme didn’t even need to cast a technique. A single tail sweep was enough to kill a few hundred. If he had summoned it beforehand, the navy units probably would never be able to resist.
Prince Chao and Xia Zhixian also realized that Chu Mu’s Mo Xie seemed to be stronger again.
As they spoke, the corpses that were swept away started shaking again, merging together into a perfect corpse.
“These things will gather again and can’t be killed. Don’t waste time here.” Chu Mu said.
Mo Xie stood ahead and opened the way. Even dominator rank corpses were swept away by Mo Xie and couldn’t get back up in a short time.
Corpses were spread everywhere. The five of them stepped over their corpses as they quickly went in front of the bone dragons.
The bone dragon’s body was thousand meter in length. Its large bony skull disappeared into the darkness above. One could only see a pair of terrifying eyes that looked down from above.
The bone dragon saw Mo Xie nearing and its eyes became more violent. Lifting up a bony claw up, it slammed it down heavily.
Mo Xie’s body wavered and easily dodged the bony dragon’s attack.
The bone dragon’s strength was around high class dominator rank. Putting aside slow and clumsy corpse type organisms, even extremely fast high class dominator rank demons couldn’t touch Mo Xie.
Mo Xie slid outwards in a string of after images. No matter how the bone dragon attacked, he couldn’t touch Mo Xie. However, Mo Xie’s tail had already secretly grabbed onto the bony dragon’s body.
Mo Xie let out a long call, and her tail’s power instantly powered up!
The nine tails clutched tight and the bone dragon’s body was completely deformed!
Mo Xie swung its tail and its massive bones were swung onto the walls. The twisted bony dragons were swung to the side and collapsed into a pile of bones.
“This…. This is at least a high class dominator rank corpse!” Sang Ying saw Mo Xie so easily get rid of the bone dragon and exclaimed.
“Corpse type organisms are annoying because they can constantly reform their bodies. The dragon isn’t dead.” Old Li said.
Indeed, the pile of bones started shaking again, causing bones to be put together and its body reformed!
“Let’s leave.” Chu Mu had no interest in fighting these corpses so he brought Mo Xie and the others into the tunnel.
Not long after entering the tunnel, the dragon was completed. It angrily fit its head into the tunnel and watched them as they walked further away, its red eyes steaming as it clawed at the walls.
Prince Chao turned around and looked at the resentful bone dragon and said, “Though that was annoying, it wasn’t too hard.”
“It isn’t that easy. That was just the first obstacle. The demons that can’t even past the first obstacle become the corpses in there and become the first line of defence for the demon burial ground.” Chu Mu said.
“En, there are going to be even stronger organisms.” Xia Zhixian said.
“What’s wrong?” Princess JIn Rou said in a low voice.
“Very close, I just feel like there was something wrong.” Chu Mu furrowed his brows.
“What’s wrong?” Princess Jin Rou asked.
“Soul pact, my seventh soul pact seems to be broken, but I think…” Chu Mu couldn’t explain the feeling and thought about it before speaking, “it’s like breaking a lotus but having threads still connected.”
