The Charm of Soul Pets - Chapters Chapter 1270: Eternal Ocean Son
“Is the demon burial mound owner the legendary undead Yellow Spring?” Xu Kuang asked.
If they had this news, spreading it back to Wupan Continent would cause countless experts to be shocked!
“It is the most powerful, but it can’t be called the demon burial mound’s owner.” Old Raccoon man said.
Xu Kuang wanted to continue asking questions but Old Li gave him no chances.
“Just like how warrior rank can never enter dominator rank, commander rank organisms can hardly ever enter immortal rank. Human, if you sign a soul pact with it, do you have the confidence of helping it into immortal rank? You have to know that the moment it puts on that demon crown, it’ll immediately become immortal rank!” Old raccoon man said seriously.
Chu Mu glanced at Night and nodded, “Yes.”
“You don’t have to agree so confidently. The blood mark on it is an undead mark. After five years, when these blood marks cover its entire body, it will revert into a corpse type demon. If you don’t want that to happen, come to demon burial mound again and find the real yellow spring to help fix it. Hopefully by then, you can enter the heavenly realm yourself.” Old raccoon man said.
Chu Mu’s gaze fell on Night’s blood markings. These are all memories of Night once becoming an undead. Chu Mu never expected it to continue spreading and devouring Night’s whole body.
“Five years…. Five years is enough time.” Chu Mu said.
Five years was a long time for Chu Mu. He knew that Night would only get stronger if it stayed with him. In five years, Chu Mu would lead Night back into demon burial mound and prove that to Old Raccoon Man!
“You coming to demon burial mound may be for another reason. I feel something on you.” Old raccoon man asked.
Chu Mu nodded and said, “I came to find something left here by the heaven boundary monument beast soul to defeat an ancient dragon person in a wind palace.”
“Ancient dragon person….. You mean the Eternal Ocean Son?” ancient raccoon man said.
“Eternal Ocean Son?” Chu Mu paused. This was a term he hadn’t ever heard of.
“In the vast eternal ocean, the most powerful few organisms are known as Eternal Ocean sons. The ancient dragon person is one of them. It likes to sleep and often sleeps for a few thousand years. It has a bad temper and becomes a cruel dominator whenever it wakes up, defeating any powerful organisms that have grown since it last fell asleep. Those that catch its attention either die or choose to swear allegiance. Death means completely disappearing. Allegiance means the next time it closes its eyes, they must fall asleep as well…..” Old Raccoon Man said.
Princess Jin Rou read similar words from the text on the wall, so it seemed that this old raccoon man indeed knew a lot of things.
“You know how to defeat it?” Chu Mu questioned.
The ancient dragon person’s existence was still a threat to New Moon Ground, one hidden underground. Once they woke up, any technique of it could destroy the entire insignificant New Moon Ground!
“Defeat it?” Old raccoon man suddenly laughed, as if he was laughing at Chu Mu’s ignorance.
“There aren’t many organisms that can defeat this organism. How could you, a human not even immortal rank, speak of that? However, since the heaven boundary monument selected you, you must have some merit with soul pets. The beast soul told you to come to demon burial mound to find something to suppress the Eternal Ocean Son?” Old raccoon man said.
“Yes.” Chu Mu suddenly felt that he was selected as if by fate by the heaven boundary monument. In the past, he often saw in other legends what were so called “destinies”. He never would have thought that he would become the holder of a prophecy too. Maybe this was a powerful proof of its importance.
“I’ve calculated it before. The Eternal ocean son won’t wake up in the next ten years. Come back in five years and grab it then. I’ll keep the item for you until you’re powerful enough.” The old raccoon man said.
Clearly, the item the ancient beast soul wanted him to find was in the inner island.
This made sense. Anything that could suppress the ancient dragon person couldn’t be a normal item scattered in demon burial mound’s middle or outer island. Only the demon heavenly realm might have such a treasure.
“You can leave now. I actually hate humans coming to challenge, because humans never obey our demons’ rules.” Old raccoon man waved his hand and dragged his short body towards where the light screen shone down.
Xu Kuang, Hai Qie, and the other navy leaders naturally couldn’t understand what Chu Mu and the old raccoon man were talking about before, but since they were allowed to leave, they didn’t want to stay around for long and immediately started going back towards the yellow spring road.
They had no chance of getting the demon crown. The great leader Xu Kuang wasn’t a greedy person. Being able to leave was good enough for him.
“Let’s leave too.” Chao Lengchuan said to Chu Mu.
Chu Mu nodded and glanced at Night aside him. At this moment, Night lightly lowered its body to signal Chu Mu to get on.
Chu Mu jumped onto Night’s back. Compared to before, Night’s body was even nimbler and sturdier now. This caused Chu Mu to feel at ease.
The great leader Xu Kuang and the others all glanced over at Chu Mu.
Chu Mu was now riding the Yellow Spring that had destroyed their entire army and was a top tier dominator rank demon. Yet, now it was this man’s soul pet. The navy were all in admiration. Even the great leader Xu Kuang held some reverence.
Little Mo Xie leaped off of Chu Mu’s shoulder, happily climbing onto Night’s head as she let out small calls, welcoming Night back.
Night half closed its eyes as a glimmer of satisfaction appeared in its eyes. It used its mental voice to ask Mo Xie whether little hidden dragon and Zhan Ye were back.
Chu Mu opened up all the spaces between his soul pacts so everyone could say hi.
Of course, there was an unfamiliar face, Dead Dream.
Similarly dancers in the dark, one was in the sky, while one was on the ground. Presumably, both of them would have many common interests.
“Oh, I almost forgot, tell that little kid that follows you that the island master has forgiven him. He can come back if he wants.” Suddenly, the ancient raccoon man’s voice came from afar, his voice ephemeral.
Chu Mu turned around, but could no longer see the old raccoon man.
The old raccoon man’s words confused Chu Mu, but very quickly Chu Mu remembered an important person – Old Li!
He remembered long ago when Chu Mu asked Old Li why he looked like a half human half soul pet, he replied that he messed up a transformation and made himself into a half raccoon being.
However, having after seeing the old raccoon man, he knew that the appearance wasn’t due to a failed transformation and was instead because he belonged to a species like that.
“Old Li, it’s time for you to come out, right?” Chu mu said with mental voice.
At this time, Chu Mu felt a shiver from his main spatial ring. When Chu Mu extended his soul remembrance inward, he found Old Li hiding in a corner, his body slightly shaking as he muttered to himself, “Island master has forgiven me…. Has he really forgiven me? I can go back, I can really go back now?”
This was the first tiem Chu Mu had seen Old Li like this. Presumably, he also had an unforgettable past.
Chu Mu didn’t disturb him, and instead asked Night.
Night told Chu Mu that it was very confused when it met Old raccoon man too. He learned later that the raccoon people were a very rare species of demon. They all lived in demon burial mound and protected the heavenly realm.
When Night mentioned Old Li to the old raccoon man, the old raccoon man told Night that he was a young man in the clan that ran away from the island in fear of punishment for a massive mistake he had committed. It had been hundreds of years since then.
To species with long lives, a few hundred years wasn’t much. However, a few hundred years of not returning to one’s home, forced to wander the human world, that probably wasn’t the best feeling.
“Old Li, do you want to go back?” chu Mu asked.
“Of course not!” Old Li said very adamantly, “Young master, don’t we have a promise?”
“Promise? Oh, I remember.” Chu Mu nodded.
He remembered that Old Li asked him to promise him one thing and in return, he would find all the soul items, xuan items, etc. that he ever wanted. Old Li had followed him for many years and had given him many things. Chu Mu obviously wouldn’t be miserly and not help Old Li.
“Before I fix my mistake, I won’t return!” Old Li said very seriously.
“Alright, tell me what to do when the time comes. However, you really are crafty. I was just a spirit emperor at the time. I thought the thing you wanted me to do was a dominator rank thing, yet never expected it to be at least an immortal rank task…..” Chu Mu laughed bitterly.
Since it was something lost from the heavenly realm, it had to be at least immortal rank.
“Heihei.” Old Li laughed.
In reality, Old Li never would have thought Chu Mu could step into this realm. It looked like he didn’t waste all these years and actually chose the right person, because they were getting closer and closer to their target.
“Hui~~~” Night went ahead and said to Chu Mu that he left some things in middle island that might be helpful for Chu Mu’s other soul pets.
Chu Mu’s eyes went bright. This was great news. Most of his soul pets were still middle class dominator rank. Compared to Night, Mo Xie, they were far behind and they should indeed try to alleviate the imbalance.
Demon burial mound middle island had incredible resources. Now that Night was the strongest demon in middle island, it was basically the owner of middle island. Chu Mu could definitely use Night’s authority to ravage all the xuan in the middle island he needed!
