The Charm of Soul Pets - Chapters Chapter 1418
“We’re in trouble,” Chu Mu frowned as he focused his attention on the tear crystal in the vessel.
That tear crystal had started releasing a warm and gentle glow. The warm glow condensed into a beam from a few places as it pointed to different directions.
“What’s wrong?” asked Princess Jin Rou.
“Those people seem to be after this tear crystal. They are rushing right towards us, we may soon be surrounded,” said Chu Mu.
“Isn’t there a restriction in this place? Why can they sense this tear crystal?” asked Princess Jin Rou.
“I don’t know either. Perhaps this tear crystal from Seven Sins Fox Sky King is special,” replied Chu Mu.
In restricted zones, some items with unique sensing ability would lose their function, like the rings held by Chu Mu and Ye Qingzi. In some of the strong restricted zones, it might even directly break the connection between the soul pet trainers and their soul pets.
Chu Mu naturally was not willing to give up this precious Fox King tear crystal. He told the Martial Cloud Dragon, “We may encounter many enemies.”
The Martial Cloud Dragon admired martial prowess over all else. It used its roar to tell Chu Mu that it was glad to help him.
“Great, let’s fly towards the back of the sun then,” Chu Mu pointed in a direction.
The Martial Cloud Dragon’s flying speed was extremely fast. Those pursuers might not be able to catch up to Chu Mu for a while.
“Chu Mu, if we were to leave from the exit of Divine Sect, would we get surrounded by that enemy of yours?” asked Princess Jin Rou worriedly.
“So be it then, we don’t really have any other choice right now. We can only return from the path that we came in from. Hopefully, Old Sect Master Xiao can arrive there in time. Otherwise, we might have to break through by force,” said Chu Mu.
Chu Mu’s current identity had become rather important. Even if those people from Divine Sect wanted to execute him, they would have to consider whether the factions that were allied with New Moon Land and were controlled by the Invisible Kingdom would agree.
Of course, Chu Mu still had to avoid falling into the hands of Gate Master Han no matter what. That guy might just kill him without any hesitation if he got a chance.
“Chu Mu, there seems to be someone in front of us,” said Princess Jin Rou after she opened her eyes.
Chu Mu’s heart sank instantly. Fox King’s Monument Tear did not point out that there was a Monument Tear Individual ahead.
Coming into this Imprint Valley despite not being a Monument Tear Individual, that meant that the other party had come specifically for the power of the Monument Tear. He did not know just from where those people had obtained this intel!
As there were pursuers behind them, Chu Mu naturally also could not turn back.
The Martial Cloud Dragon flapped its wings and it continued flying forward. Soon, a few burning figures appeared from the mountains ahead.
Deep red flames were raging, dazzling fiery tails dragged a long trail as they charged towards them.
Those fiery figures seemed to have received some sort of order. Their flying speed was not particularly fast, but they created a formation in midair.
“They are going to intercept us,” said Princess Jin Rou.
Chu Mu’s expression turned solemn. He scanned those fiery figures and realized that those people were definitely strong.
The people who had entered the Imprint Valley this time had almost all reached the Immortal rank. The legend of Monument Tears were only passed around amongst those in the Immortal rank domain. Those people had probably been seeking this mysterious item for a very long time.
The Martial Cloud Dragon did not slow down at all. It flapped its wings even faster as it generated hurricanes with the chaotic air currents around it, adhering to its wings.
“A creature is flying towards us!” Within the mountain, a soul pet trainer that was riding on a Burning Nine-Headed Bird shouted.
The six soul pet trainers instantly became alert and focused on the approaching dragon.
The flames spread out in the sky and it turned into an intensely burning diagram. The diagram looked similar to a shield with various patterns carved onto it as it floated in midair!
The shield was spread out across a large area and it completely sealed the flying path of the Martial Cloud Dragon.
“Feng Xu, can you identify what that is clearly?” asked a soul pet trainer in red robes.
The soul pet trainer called Feng Xu was the one who was riding on the Burning Nine-Headed Bird. He was the one in charge of scouting in the team.
He focused on the blue dot in the sky far away, but he could not see its figure clearly even after using his soul remembrance.
“What are you scared of? With the six of us cooperating, is there any creature that we can’t take on in this world?” said a soul pet trainer riding on a Flame Lion.
“True. The six of us have experienced plenty of this world, what can this small Imprint Valley amount to?” commented a younger man frivolously.
Hexfire, this was a team with a great reputation in Zhengming Continent. The six people did not serve any faction, but were people whom the Elemental Clan wanted to build a good relationship with.
They were the representatives of the adventure teams. They had stepped into regions that nobody had set foot in before, killed powerful individuals that seemed invincible to others. The six of them were not really outstanding amongst the Immortal rank on their own, but the six of them could become a significant threat towards many powerful Immortal rank individuals as they always acted together.
Within the Immortal rank, most people were usually alone. Rarely would anyone who was used to acting alone maintain teamwork with others like Hexfire.
The raging wind was approaching fast from the distance and the burning fire became a little slanted due to overbearing wind pressure.
At this distance, the six members could clearly see the identity of the approaching creature.
That figure was becoming larger and larger, to the point that it could truly swallow the entire sky within this region. A pair of huge membranous wings shrouded everything!
“This…… This is……” Hexfire opened their eyes wide in shock. They would have never imagined that a dragon would appear before them. Furthermore, this was a high class bloodline dragon clad in dark blue armor —— Martial Cloud Dragon!
The Martial Cloud Dragon’s tyrannical body would astonish anybody. Hexfire had gone to many places and had seen various dragons before. However, it was rare to see a creature with an extremely high class bloodline like the Martial Cloud Dragon.
The Martial Cloud Dragon opened its mouth and unleashed a dragon breath towards the shield made up of flames!
The dragon breath thoroughly destroyed everything in its path. The deafening roar made Hexfire feel as if their heads was going to burst.
“My goodness, it’s…… it’s a Martial Cloud Dragon!” The soul pet trainer called Feng Xu screamed in utter shock.
His Burning Nine-Headed Bird was already enormous, but it looked just like a pitiful chick compared to the Martial Cloud Dragon as it flew past, small and weak. The Martial Cloud Dragon could easily slap his Burning Nine-Headed Bird into the ground with a casual swing of its claw if it wanted.
The Martial Cloud Dragon slammed directly into the fire shield formation created by Hexfire using simple brute force. The entire formation instantly shattered. Those lingering flames scattered away and it no longer hindered the movement of the Martial Cloud Dragon.
Feng Xu got up from the ground in an unsightly manner. His Burning Nine-Headed Bird had fainted from the crash and could not take to the sky for a while.
“Block them!” shouted Feng Xu.
After seeing their fire shield formation getting shattered so easily, the other five had spaced out for a moment. Only after the Martial Cloud Dragon had flown a fair distance away did they snap back to reality and ordered their soul pets to unleash their techniques.
Flame Lion was the fastest to react. This robust lion looked like a fat four-legged insect before the Martial Cloud Dragon. The explosive fireball that it blasted out hit the Martial Cloud Dragon’s wing.
The Martial Cloud Dragon’s wings were even tougher than its body. A technique from an Immortal rank Flame Lion could only leave a simple black dot on its wings.
Other flame techniques followed right behind and landed in front of the Martial Cloud Dragon. The Martial Cloud Dragon took an emergency break in the air and swung its claw towards the fire type creatures that were chasing behind.
The dark blue dragon claw generated a fierce crushing force as it spread through the space rapidly.
The Flame Lion and two other fire type Immortals wanted to pursue it, but they immediately dodged to the side after seeing the terrifying crushing force that was approaching them.
“What are you all so scared of?” Feng Xu was enraged.
All three people stepped back. Nobody dared to charge forward anymore, even though any one of them would have been able to keep the Martial Cloud Dragon here by unleashing a fire mountain.
“That’s easy for you to say, but none of us can endure the power behind that technique!” The soul pet trainer riding the Flame Lion also shouted back angrily.
Didn’t your Burning Nine-Headed Bird get slapped away by a simple swing of its claw? That Martial Cloud Dragon did not even use any technique that time.
That claw strike just now was clearly a charged attack. If any of us get hit by it directly, we would either die or suffer heavy injuries. How can we not dodge it?
“Watch out, its attack has not ended yet!” Another member shouted to warn the others.
A shredding hurricane was spat out by the Martial Cloud Dragon. The hurricane connected with the clouds and the earth, sweeping over an even larger area. There was no room for them to dodge at all.
The surrounding flames were pulled into the shredding hurricane. The moment those fire type soul pets were within range, they were also pulled in.
When Chu Mu saw those fire type soul pet trainers getting restrained, he was also astonished.
The Martial Cloud Dragon was indeed tyrannical. Those pseudo Immortal rank creatures were like children before it.
Choosing to be peaceful towards the Martial Cloud Dragon in the cultivation formation was indeed a wise choice. He, Xia Yin and Lin Mengling might not have been able to defeat this Martial Cloud Dragon even if they cooperated back then.
“Let’s go, leave them alone,” Chu Mu knew that there were still many pursuers behind. If they were stalled by the six people here, then the pursuers would catch up.
The Martial Cloud Dragon nodded and continued flying forward.
The chaotic hurricane lasted for a long time. When Hexfire recovered, the Martial Cloud Dragon had already flown a long distance away from them.
“That Martial Cloud Dragon is so scary!” said one member fearfully.
Feng Xu stared at the Martial Cloud Dragon and clenched his teeth in frustration.
At that moment, a charming figure suddenly appeared before Feng Xu.
Feng Xu was startled for a moment. He did not sense that person approach at all.
“Madam, we tried our best……” reported Feng Xu immediately.
The woman wearing a loose silk robe looked chilling and prestigious. She raised her head to take a glance at the blue figure in the distance and snorted, “Six trashes.”
