The Charm of Soul Pets - Chapters Chapter 1259: Yellow Springs Path, Forgotten River, Middle Potential Forgiven Fox!
“No, they’re not. It’s going to take them about an hour before they reach where we are, and two hours before they reach the navy.” said Princess Jinrou.
Chu Mu’s heart sank. The corpse army was so far, yet the terrifying corpse aura already pervaded the area, making it hard to breathe. The size and strength of this corpse army was not something they could contend against.
“Let’s leave.” said Chu Mu.
After returning to Three Roads, the navy members were all resting.
“What happened?” inquired Big Leader Xu Kuang.
“It’s a large corpse army that is swallowing the path we’ve taken.” Chu Mu’s voice sank as he spoke.
Xu Kuang’s face changed, and his first reaction was the same. Their path of retreat had been sealed off.
“It will take them around 2 hours to reach us. With our current strength, it’s impossible to fight the enormous corpse type army.” said Chu Mu.
Princess Jinrou had already told Chu Mu that there were several tens of thousands of emperors in the corpse tide rushing at them. Besides the emperors, there were a few hundreds of thousands of monarchs. In the face of such a magnificent corpse army, everyone here would be devoured clean.
It was even more impossible to slaughter their way out. Corpse type creatures didn’t have any true conception of death. Upon being killed, they would be able to heal whether they had suffered the blow from within a short period of time. Indeed, the corpse army was the most difficult thing to deal with!
When Xu Kuang heard the news, he was silent for a long while, and he swept his eyes over the four thousand or so navy members.
There were 4000 navy members, but only 1000 with fighting strength left. Xu Kuang could tolerate the complete annihilation of the navy members’ soul pets, but he would not let the soul pet trainers die here.
“All navy members, listen to my command. Forge onwards!” suddenly, Big Leader Xu Kuang gave an order.
All of the navy members stood up, but much confusion could be seen on their faces. They didn’t understand why the big leader wouldn’t wait for them to tend to their wounds before moving onwards.
“Big leader, the soldiers haven’t recovered yet…” said Military Adviser Huang Mang.
“The path behind us is being swallowed up by a large corpse army. They will reach this place in under two hours. We no longer have time to rest. Continue moving forwards!” said Big Leader Xu Kuang, very solemnly.
Big Leader Xu Kuang’s words caused an uproar among the navy members.
“Let’s slaughter our way back!” angrily said an ocean general.
“The corpse type army can resurrect itself. Even if we crush them into the ground, they will endlessly climb right back up. If there are more than ten thousand in the army, there’s no chance we will be able to slaughter our way back.” said Military Adviser Huang Mang.
“Then… then will we die here?”
The navy members began to restlessly discuss amongst each other. All of them frightenedly looked at the path they took, faintly feeling the scent of corpses wafting over.
“What are you frightened for? Can those corpses move faster than us? I will kill whoever dares look back first!” angrily said Big Leader XU Kuang.
“That’s right. Although there are still two guardians left, our ocean leaders and big leader have yet to fight. We will definitely be able to safely cross Yellow Springs Path.” said a navy member captain.
“That’s right, we’ll be able to pass through!” said another navy member.
After a moment of panic, all of the navy members continued forward. Although many of their main fighting soul pets had perished, these navy members had other soul pets they could ride on. The speed of their progression forwards wasn’t too affected.
“Big Leader, if we aren’t able to rest and recuperate, the upcoming Forgotten River will be difficult!” softly said Military Adviser Huang Mang.
“How much of our fighting strength do we have left?’ asked Big Leader Xu Kuang.
“None of our dominator rank navy members are able to participate in fights anymore. Thus, the ocean leaders and yourself must take action in the upcoming fights. The remaining 1000 navy members only have beast type or plant world soul pets. But they won’t be very effective towards creatures of this rank.” said Military Adviser Huang Mang.
Big Leader Xu Kuang’s expression became extremely serious. The appearance of the large corpse army meant that they had gotten caught up in a land of death. No matter what, they had to continue forwards. But Xu Kuang knew himself that there was a chance that all these people could die in Forgotten River and it would be practically impossible to deal with the final Yellow Spring.
“Let’s continue moving forwards before we talk about it.” said Xu Kuang.
Huang Mang didn’t talk about it anymore. Fortunately, Xu Kuang had yet to still take action, otherwise the navy members wouldn’t have any confidence to continue. The moment the navy morale fell, it would only be a matter of time before the whole army fell.
The frenzy of corpses behind them continued to devour
Not long later, an enormous black monument appeared on the Yellow Springs Path. On top was written the ancient words – Forgotten River Path!
“Forgotten River, Third Guardian!”
When they raised their heads and looked at the black stone monument, there was a mysterious feeling of suppression that deterred people from proceeding!
“Hmph, what bravado!” Big Leader Xu Kuang harrumphed and stepped forward. He walked around the stone monument towards the Forgotten River region.
The navy members all focused 120%. The slaughter by the Shadow Beast had formed shadow of fear in their hearts. Now that they would have to face a creature even stronger than the Shadow Beast, it would be lying to say they weren’t scared.
Big Leader Xu Kuang walked at the very front with Leader Hai Qie right behind him. All of the navy members were not slow in their steps and they walked onto the dusky Yellow Springs Road path.
“Find where it is.” Chu Mu glanced at the adjacent Princess Jinrou.
Princess Jinrou nodded her head. She closed her eyes and released her perception.
In the next instant, Princess Jinrou turned around and stared in shock at the very top of the Forgotten River monument!
“It’s on top!” Princess Jinrou pointed at the Forgotten River Monument behind them.
Princess Jinrou’s voice caused the navy members to shiver. When they turned around, they abruptly discovered a slender creature lying on the black Forgotten River MOnument.
A pair of brown eyes was arrogantly looking down at them!
It was lying on the edge of the stone monument with its long tail hanging down while languidly swinging about. It was as if the appearance of this many invaders would give it more pleasure!
Suddenly, Forgotten River, that was lying there resting, stood up. It jumped right off the hundred meter tall stone monument and landed right in the middle of the navy legion.
The moment it jumped down, all of the navy members seemed to be frozen. It was difficult to even lift a finger as cold sweat rolled down their necks. This was especially the case for members near Forgotten River; their hearts were about to stop!
A creature of this rank was like the arrival of a death god to these navy members.
Big Leader Xu Kuang, Leader Hai Qie and Leader Tie Bing focused their attention on Forgotten River that landed in the midst of the navy members. The Forgotten River would probably be able to instantly kill over a thousand of the navy members who didn’t have any fighting strength!
Yellow Springs Path was so silent it was possible to hear the sound of water flowing. Four thousand eyes were staring at Forgotten River, watching it slowly walk by the navy members.
Its deep brown eyes stayed level. It was like the emperor rank navy members around it were like air!
Everyone could feel Forgotten River’s contempt!
It couldn’t be bothered to attack these weak navy members!
Forgotten River walked by the navy members, one step at a time towards Xu Kuang, Hai Qie, Chu Mu,Chao Lengchuan and the others.
Its pair of deep brown eyes sized up these people before slowly walking right up to them.
Forgotten River walked up 100 meters away from Chu Mu before turning around. Its eyes carried faint provokation intent. It was telling them they could attack it whenever they wanted to.
Xu Kuang let out a sigh of relief, rejoicing for the lucky escape of his navy members. However, Forgotten River’s arrogant contempt made him feel angry.
Chu Mu stared at Forgotten River and when he saw it, his eyes widened!
Forgotten River’s body was slender, beautiful and full of power. Its deep brown fur grandly fluttered in the wind. Its long tails were dragging on the ground, yet they accentuated its nobility and pride.
“Chu…. Chu Mu, Forgotten River…” the adjacent Princes Chao stared in amazement at Chu Mu.
XI Zhixian, Sang Ying and Princess Jinrou were all staring at Chu Mu. Or more precisely, they were looking at the small Mo Xie on Chu Mu’s shoulder in shock!
They were doing this because the third guardian, Forgotten River, of Yellow Springs Path in front of them was very similar to Mo Xie of the past!
Demon fox species!!
Forgotten River was a demon fox species creature!
It was a body created by the perfect combination of strength and speed. It had charming and noble fur, with a trademark fox tail!
This was a deep brown colored demon fox!
“Young… young master! A Seven Sins Fox!!” Old Li’s voice suddenly cried out!
Seven Great Sins Foxes, a Forgiven Fox!!
Being covered in noble deep brown colored fur represented this Sin Fox’s attribute!
Chu Mu’s heart was in billows when he looked at Forgotten River.
He remembered when Old Han had told him of the legends about the Seven Sins Foxes.
Seven Sins Foxes were split into upper potential, middle potential and lower potential foxes!
Lower potential foxes were the Sins Fox Inferno Monarch, Sins Fox Wind Monarch and Sins Fox Thunder Monarch
Middle potential foxes were the Sins Fox Water Emperor, Sins Fox Rock Emperor and Sins Fox Ice Emperor
Middle potential foxes were perfect emperors with strength comparable to pseudo dominators. If they were able to undo their sins and be completely forgiven, their power would rise to the peak dominator rank!
Indeed, Chu Mu was extremely shocked because a middle potential fox had appeared on Yellow Springs Path and it was a Seven Sins Fox Emperor that was already forgiven!
A Seven Sins Fox Rock Emperor!
