The Charm of Soul Pets - Chapters Chapter 1254: Yellow Springs Road: Protector From Paramita
They were around 5000 in number, all of which were solemn. Their eyes were constantly looking around with vigilance.
“Great leader, Zhao De’s incident……” The great military counsel said in a low voice.
“Heng, that fellow was someone I’ve wanted to kick out for a while. Don’t think I, Xu Kuang, don’t know anything he does behind the scenes.” Great Leader Xu Kuang humphed. Turning around, he glanced at the remaining troops that escaped back.
Behind the great leader were two other leaders, one of which were female. Her attire was slightly revealing, only wearing a leather vest that covered her ample chest. Her tanned thin arms and navel were completely revealed.
Below that were skintight black leather pants. The pants were stretched tight around her legs and behind, fully revealing her attractive curves.
The female leader heard the military counselor and great leader Xu Kuang’s words, and simply laughed charmingly, “I’ve wanted to gouge out that Zhao De’s eyes for a while now, and keep them on my body so he could see as much as he wants.”
The military counselor Huang Mang saw the great leader and other leaders were all nonchalant about Zhao De’s death and was helpless to do anything about it.
He knew that Xu Kuang and Hai Qie were both seriously in question of Zhao De’s character, but no matter what, Zhao De was still a navy general. Though him dying doesn’t mean much, having three thousand elites dropping to only five or six hundred was a serious insult to the reputation of the third navy army. One had to know that on Wupan Continent, killing anyone in the Wupan Navy was a serious crime!
“Though our navy is powerful, there are countless lone experts in this world. Is Zhao De’s head filled with boobs? We lose nothing having lost a person like that, or else he might stay around and continue destroying our reputation.” Great leader Xu Kuang said with some viciousness. He paused and quelled his anger before continuing, “However, the other navy units are all part of my number three navy army unit. I will avenge their lives for them!”
“But, we don’t even know who they are.” Female leader Hai Qie said.
“They’re most likely headed towards the second demon burial ground. If we keep going at this pace, we’ll eventually meet them.” Great military leader Huang Mang said.
“How so?” Female leader Hai Qie asked, confused.
“Demon burial mound’s precipice are very large, with the inside completely made with hard rocks. The way we’re currently travelling has always been forward and upwards. The other precipice also travel in a similar trajectory. Its like how countless rivers all go to the ocean.” The military counselor Huang Mang said.
Huang Mang had gotten some information from the demon burial in the past from an old supreme. This was how he knew about this precipice in this second burial mound.
“The road we walk is just a small split? However, the protectors we’ve met so far all aren’t weak.” The other leader Tie Bing finally couldn’t help but speak.
“These are all small underlings. If we pass another burial mound, we’ll enter the second demon burial mound’s Yellow Spring Road. The Yellow Spring Road’s protectors are in the single digits, but they don’t care about the amount of people entering.” Huang Mang said.
“Yellow Spring Road?” Does this have anything to do with the legendary “Yellow Spring”? Can it be that the last protector is a Yellow Spring?” The female commander Hai Qie said, confused.
“We don’t know it too well. If there really is a Yellow Spring guarding the road, let’s just hope it hasn’t reached tenth phase.” The military counselor Huang Mang said.
The five undead legends were all immensely powerful. As long as they reached tenth phase, there are barely any creatures that can beat them in dominator rank!
“Military counselor, how many protectors are on the Yellow Spring Road, and how powerful are they?” The female leader asked.
“According to the records on a monument, the most ancient protectors of this road is the Paramita Flower Concubine, the water devil “Three Roads”, the water beast “Forgotten Creek”, and a real ‘Yellow Spring’.”
Leader Tie Bing laughed bitterly and said, “Real…. Real Yellow Spring…. Then this truly is our yellow spring road.”
“I was speaking about the most ancient protectors. It’s no longer those four organisms protecting it. However, our documents do originate from these four beasts.” The military counselor stroked his short beard.
“Then what is protecting it now?” Hai Qie was now immensely curious.
“Who knows? The protectors here get replaced by new protectors immediately when they are defeated or die. This is a rule of the island, but it shouldn’t surpass dominator rank.” The counselor Huang mang said.
“Ok, stop fear-mongering. No matter what is guarding it, we have to get the demon crown!” The great leader Xu Kuang said with no concern. “People behind, walk faster! I’m too benevolent to you in the past. If you don’t hurry up, I’ll double your training load when we get back!”
Hearing the great leader yell this, the long line of people behind really did get faster.
Seeing the effect, great leader Xu Kuang cursed. “These lazy bastards need a whipping!”
The purple firelight lit up the front. However, what entered their vision was only cold and rigid rocks.
Slowly, the path got wider and wider, and before Chu Mu knew it they were faced with a flat road.
Both sides opened up. A massive underground waterfall flowed into a turbulent lake that flew past both sides of the road. Unknown flames stuck to the sides of the wall, numbering in the hundreds, but they still weren’t enough to light up the entire place.
Chu Mu looked around and noticed that, other than their road, this wider road has many sub branches that all lead here.
This underground tunnel remained on an upward trend. Though there was firelight up ahead, they could only see two to three kilometers up ahead. The rest was engulfed in darkness.
The five of them followed the now iwder path down and slowly noticed a large shadow lumbering at the center of the road ahead!
The black figure was nearly a hundred meters tall, cold, arrogant!
As they came closer, they noticed that the black figure wasn’t an organism but instead was a plaque set up in the middle of the road!
“Yellow Springs Road!”
Princess Jin Rou looked at the words and couldn’t help but yelp.
“Just now it was “walk with the dead”, now its Yellow Springs Road, can this path really be a path towards the underworld? Can it be that we’re lost ghosts already?” Prince Chao said.
“Chu Mu, your soul pet really is good at running into places. How did it manage to get here?” Sang Ying’s heart was slightly quivering as he said.
“Very close now….’ Chu Mu muttered to himself.
After he spoke, Chu Mu stepped aside and passed right through the threatening big rock plaque and stepped into what truly felt like “walking with death”.
Princess Jin Rou hugged her little ice fox and swiftly caught up, her spirited eyes gazing ahead.
As a spectral ghost herself, she could see further down. Everything here was very strange so she had to remain vigilant.
“There’s energy ahead.” Princess Jin Rou said.
Chu Mu didn’t stop walking but slowed down slightly.
Continuing up ahead, Chu Mu gradually heard sounds clashing accompanied with an occasional quaver of the cave itself.
“It’s probably some demon in this Yellow Springs Road.” Chu Mu guessed.
The sounds of battle got nearer and nearer, but just as they were about to arrive, another stone plaque appeared before them.
“Paramite!” Princess Jin Rou read out the words.
Prince Chao, Xia Zhixian, and Sang Ying’s expressions all became very strange. Everything here pointed directly towards death…..
“Ahead there isn’t just a single demon but instead a group of people.” Chu Mu said in a grave voice.
“Princess Jin Rou looked around the plaque and immediately noticed the large group of familiarly dressed people.
“Its the Wupan Navy!” Princess Jin Rou said with surprise.
Chu Mu furrowed her brows. “They should be the same people as the ones we met at the first demon burial mound, but these are stronger.”
“Then what do we do?” Sang Ying asked.
“Let’s watch first.” Chu Mu said.
The five of them hid well and slowly neared the region where the Paramita was.
Passing through the darkness, they found the Yellow Springs Road already covered by a large group of soul pets. They were like Zhao De’s navy, having many teams covering elements, wing type, beast type, plants, and water beasts.
The five thousand elites were constantly casting techniques at an extremely fast organism!
The organism was incredibly fast. Every time the emperor rank team’s attacks fell, it had already disappeared.
A dark glow flashed past along with a smear of blood!
In the beast team, three hundred beast type soul pets were all split into two, their bodies splitting cleanly in half!
Blood poured out into a tide that followed the slightly slanted Yellow Springs Road, morphiung the road into a Yellow Springs River full of blood water!
“Such a powerful demon!!” Hiding far away, Chu Mu and the others were all shaken.
Chu Mu needs to cast his strongest Evil Burial Mound to kill two to three hundred emperors instantly, yet that demon dodged countless techniques and casually swiped its claws and achieved the same result!!
This is definitely past high class dominator rank!
“This is the protector of this section of Yellow Springs Road, known as “Paramita”. Only if we defeat it can we continue.” Princess JIn ROu said.
“Paramita!” Chu Mu said the title again as his eyes stared unmovingly at the figure darting through enemy ranks. His heart was roiling with waves of emotion!
