The Charm of Soul Pets - Chapters Chapter 1263: Yellow Springs Path, Strongest Demon, Yellow Spring
The navy marched along Yellow Springs Path, but after walking a long while, they still didn’t see Yellow Springs Monument.
“What’s happening? Why haven’t we arrived at Yellow Springs’ territory even after walking so long.” said Leader Tie Bing.
“This is a good thing. We’ll be able to widen the distance with the corpse legion. Our traveling speed is faster than theirs.” said Leader Hai Qie.
Big Leader Hai Qie was still walking ahead of the team and his gaze remained fixated forwards.
Suddenly, an enormous black figure appeared!
Yellow Springs Monument!
They had finally reached Yellow Springs Monument, but the navy members were all very nervous.
If they wanted to live, they would have to defeat Yellow Springs. But when they remembered the strength of the three guardians, the navy members felt depressed.
In fact, compared to the large corpse army behind them, the mysterious and powerful Yellow Springs ahead of them made them feel even more uneasy and afraid.
This time, Xu Kuang intentionally checked to see if there was any creature on top of Yellow Springs Monument. After ensuring Yellow Spring wasn’t lying on top, he finally stepped onto Yellow Springs territory.
“Big Leader, how much confidence do you have?” the adjacent Hai Qie softly spoke to Big Leader Xu Kuang.
Big Leader Xu Kuang lightly creased his brows and he said: “When it comes to Forgotten River, I only have about 40% chance of winning.”
“40%?” Hai Qie was astonished. Big Leader really only had 40% chance of winning despite his strength? That meant that Big Leader Xu Kuang admitted that wasn’t as strong as Chu Mu.
“What about Yellow Springs?” asked Hai Qie.
Xu Kuang shook his head and said: “The final guardian is definitely very strong, but I’m not sure how much stronger. In a one on one fight, I feel like even if I summon all of my main pets, I won’t have much of a chance of victory.”
“I’ll give it my all.” said Hai Qie.
Xu Kuang nodded his head. Although he wasn’t too confident, he couldn’t hesitate in his steps. If he did, it would create even larger fear in the hearts of the navy members. As a leader, even if he was afraid or nervous, he couldn’t show it.
As they walked along the dusky Yellow Springs Path, everyone’s mind was taught. The navy members didn’t stop surveying the surrounding rugged and strange stones.
While one was nervous, it was possible to hallucinate things. The navy members felt like the rocks had eyes and were staring at them with mocking and merciless gazes.
It was no longer possible to hear the sound of the large corpse army. The entire Yellow Springs Path was scarily silent. All that could be heard were the sounds of hurried breathing, disorderly footsteps and anxious heartbeats.
“Military… Military Advisor…” suddenly, a navy member with a pale face came to report something.
“If you have something to say, just say it!” said the military adviser.
“I’m not sure where a navy member in my small team called Da Peng, went.” said the navy member captain.
“What do you mean you don’t know where he went? Is he a small child?” said the military adviser, somewhat angrily. There was someone left behind even at this time?
Xu Kuang heard the noise behind him. He came to a halt, turned around and asked: “What happened?”
“There seems to be someone who fell behind.” said Military Adviser Huang Mang.
“Fell behind?” Xu Kuang creased his brows and looked over all of the navy members: “Did any of you see him fall behind?”
All of the navy members shook their heads.
Yellow Springs Path was very wide, and in order to prevent sneak attacks from behind, the military adviser had the navy members form a square shape as they progressed. This formation meant that if someone fell behind, others would see it. There was no reason to fall behind. Even if one’s physical strength wasn’t enough, he would probably tell the person next to him so that person could help him.
“Military…. Military Adviser, Xiao Shang from my small team also seems to have fallen behind…” another navy captain softly reported.
“Military Adviser… there are also people from my small team…”
“Military Adviser, I haven’t seen our captain for a while now.”
Continuous reports came to him; each one reported that a person was missing. Everyone felt chills in their heart!
The military adviser was at a loss and he turned to Xu Kuang.
“Military Adviser, Ocean Soldier Ma is missing… he was just behind me…” said an ocean general dripping in cold sweat.
This ocean general’s words caused cold sweat to roll down everyone’s back.
A person just next to someone had disappeared!
This wasn’t a case of being left behind. Instead, these people were going missing under everyone’s watch!!
A strange atmosphere permeated the entire legion. Yellow Springs Path grew even more quiet. So quiet that it was terrifying!
“Everyone maintain formation. You and your soul pets must be touching the person next you. Keep your eyes on the person ahead of you and the moment someone disappears from your view, immediately raise your hand!” loudly ordered Xu Kuang.
The navy members maintained formation and did as Leader Xu Kuang said. Their bodies touched another ocean member and they looked ahead at another ocean member.
The beast type team’s captain fixed his eyes on the ocean member ahead of him. He was able to see sweat roll down this member’s neck…
“He’s very afraid.” the small team captain said to himself. Indeed, wasn’t he himself also covered in cold sweat?
Time passed, second by second. The small team captain was staring when suddenly, he discovered that the member’s body in front of him was slowly turning transparent!
Darkness dissolved his body and the small team captain’s wide open eyes were filled with fear!
The member in front of him had disappeared right under his watch!!
The team member’s breathing was about to stop. He abruptly raised his hand, wanting to inform the military adviser and big leader that the navy member in front of him had disappeared.
His hand shot up, accentuating the fear and shock in his heart.
However, the moment he raised his hands and looked up, the small team captain suddenly saw a mind-shattering scene!
Everyone had disappeared!!
All of the navy members in front of him had disappeared and so did the navy members around him. The big team captain had disappeared, the leaders had disappeared and even the big leader had disappeared. The entire Yellow Springs Path was completely dark and only he was still on it, standing there alone with his hand raised…
The small team leader collapsed to the ground. His mind was already taut. After seeing this scene, the surrounding empty darkness suddenly transformed into terrifying and demonic smiles!
Yellow Springs Path
“Beast type team’s Small Team Captain Zhan Heqing has disappeared.” Military Adviser reported the person who went missing.
Xu Kuang looked at each of the navy members raise their hands and at the locations that people had disappeared at the moment they stopped focusing. There were a number of empty spots in the team.
An aura of fear enshrouded everyone’s bodies. Nobody understood how these navy members disappeared, nor where these people went, if they were alive, or if they were already…
“Yellow Springs has already appeared.” Xu Kuang said in a low voice to everyone.
Yellow Springs had appeared. Indeed, the moment the first navy member disappeared, it had already extended its devil claws unto the navy legion, taking away one navy member after another.
“Big Leader, what should we do?” nervously asked Military Adviser Huang Mang.
They couldn’t even see Yellow Springs. If they continued like this, the navy members would eventually all disappear.
This was an unprecedented fear.
With the previous three guardians, they were at least able to see them and their powers.
However, Yellow Springs hadn’t even showed its face and the navy members had disappeared one by one. The torment of these uneasy thoughts was the easiest way to break the mental of people because nobody could guarantee that the next person to disappear wouldn’t be them!
Even the sound of flowing water now sounded terrifying. The navy members continuously shot up their hands and each time one did, there was a navy member and his soul pet that disappeared. Even Big Leader Xu Kuang was helpless.
There was no pattern to the people who disappeared. It could be a navy member or it could be a dominator rank ocean soldier or even an ocean general…
Obviously Yellow Springs was attacking as it pleased, just doing whatever it felt like.
“Ocean Commander… Ocean Commander Yue…” suddenly, Ocean Commander Jiang’s face turned extremely pale.
Big Commander Xu Kuang instantly looked next to him and his heart went cold.
Big Leader Xu Kuang, who was the most calm among them, couldn’t help but feel his hairs stand up. Ocean Commander Yue wasn’t even ten meters away from him, yet he had disappeared. Moreover, he hadn’t sensed any energy fluctuation. If Yellow Springs technique landed on him, would he also disappear like that?
Big Leader Xu Kuang’s heart sank deeper and deeper. He thought that by combining everyone’s soul pets, Leader Hai Qie’s soul pets as well as Sang Ying and Xia Zhixian, they would have a chance of victory against Yellow Springs. Who could have expected that even before they had a chance to attack, this many people would have already disappeared.
“Leader Tie Bing… he also…” Hai Qie’s voice entered Big Leader Xu Kuang’s ear.
Big Leader Xu Kuang’s forehead was now cored in a trace of cold sweat. He grit his teeth and swept his eyes over the sparse ocean members.
“Look after them. That deceiving creature… I’ll go and meet it!” angrily roared Big Leader Xu Kuang.
“Big leader…” Hai Qie and Huang Mang looked at Big Leader Xu Kuang.
Big Leader Xu Kuang stepped forward and broke away from the navy legion. He was going by himself into the depths of the dusky Yellow Springs Path!!
Xu Kuang continued forward. He walked and walked and the darkness around him seemed to grow denser.
Suddenly, Xu Kuang’s footsteps came to a halt. He flung his navy legion windbreaker and turned around to glance at the navy legion.
“Hmph, disappeared.” Xu Kuang coldly humphed.
All of the navy members had disappeared!
Suddenly, only Big Leader Xu Kuang was left on Yellow Springs Path. He, alone, stood on this spacious path enshrouded in darkness.
Big Leader Xu Kuang coldly swept his eyes around him. He knew that it was himself that had disappeared.
“Yellow Springs, get your ass out here. Fight me, Xu Kuang!” Big Leader Xu Kuang mustered up his courage and loudly roared down Yellow Springs Path.
“Fight me, Xu Kuang!”
“Fight me, Xu Kuang!”
Xu Kuang’s voice echoed through the Yellow Springs Cave and slowly spread into the distance.
Big Leader Xu Kuang continued forward.
However, the moment his angry echo disappeared, a lonely figure suddenly appeared in front of Xu Kuang!
Xu Kuang’s eyes instantly changed. He stared ahead of him and his heart began to violently beat.
It had finally appeared!
The final guardian of Yellow Springs Path. The strongest demon of the second Demonic Burial Mound.
