Eternal Sacred King - Chapter 2352
2352 Light of Day
The two true bodies were telepathic and the Martial Dao Prime Body naturally knew about the characteristics of the Soul Lantern.
The reason why he reached out to touch it was because he wanted to test if he could withstand the strange power of the Soul Lantern after entering the True Martial realm and forging the True Martial Dao Body.
Unfortunately, the Martial Dao Prime Body could not withstand it either.
If he could not wield the Soul Lantern, the Martial Dao Prime Body had no intention of returning to Greater Avici for the time being.
After all, that was the core of Avici. Even with the Hell Suppression Tripod, the Martial Dao Prime Body was not confident.
Nobody knew what secrets were hidden in Greater Avici.
He would explore the 16 Lesser Hells first. If his cultivation could advance further and he could control the Soul Lantern, it would not be too late for him to reenter Greater Avici.
When Yun Zhu saw Su Zimo’s stance, she could not say anything more.
However, in the depths of her heart, she was still puzzled about the relationship between Su Zimo and Desolate Martial of the Fiend Domain.
The Martial Dao Prime Body said, “My strength is limited. Even if I can use the Hell Suppression Tripod to open up a spatial node in Avici, I won’t be able to teleport you guys too far away.”
That did not matter. As long as they could leave Avici, there would be a teleportation formation nearby and Su Zimo and the other two could teleport back.
The Martial Dao Prime Body summoned the Hell Suppression Tripod and opened up a spatial node, revealing a tunnel that led out of Hell.
“Aren’t you leaving with us?”
Mo Qing was silent for a moment before raising her head. She looked at the Martial Dao Prime Body and asked softly.
The Martial Dao Prime Body shook his head gently.
He had the Hell Suppression Tripod with him and would not encounter danger even in Avici; he was in no hurry to leave.
Ming Zhen was prepared to follow him to the Fiend Domain and would not leave for the time being.
Su Zimo and Yun Zhu had already walked to the side of the spatial tunnel. Mo Qing was still standing on the spot motionlessly with her head lowered. It was unknown what she was thinking, but she looked distracted.
Su Zimo called out in confusion.
Mo Qing did not seem to have heard anything and continued standing there quietly.
“That’s far from the truth!”
Yun Zhu rolled her eyes at Su Zimo with a fake smile. She turned to Mo Qing and reminded softly, “Sister Mo Qing, let’s go!”
Mo Qing seemed to have woken up from a dream and looked a little flustered. She raised her head and glanced at the Martial Dao Prime Body before retracting her gaze hurriedly and turning to Su Zimo and Yun Zhu.
Yun Zhu smiled and held Mo Qing’s hand gently, saying to the Martial Dao Prime Body, “Fellow Daoist Desolate Martial, I can’t thank you enough for saving me this time round. Let’s meet again if we’re fated.”
The Martial Dao Prime Body nodded slightly without any expression beneath his silver mask.
It was not that he was pretending to be cold. It was just that the Book Immortal, Yun Zhu, was too smart. If he spoke too much, it was inevitable that he would reveal some flaws.
Suddenly, the Martial Dao Prime Body thought of something and said, “Both Fellow Daoists, please don’t spread the secret of Avici and my affairs.”
Mo Qing said immediately, “I can swear that I won’t reveal a single word.”
Yun Zhu was stunned for a moment before swearing that she would not spread it as well.
The reason why she did not express her stance right away was because Desolate Martial’s words sounded strange to her.
They were clearly standing together and Desolate Martial’s words were directed at the three of them. However, Desolate Martial only said ‘Both Fellow Daoists’.
It was understandable for him to say that. Excluding Su Zimo could naturally be explained as a deep friendship and trust between the two of them.
However, Yun Zhu could vaguely sense that there was more to it.
She did not have much time to think and entered the spatial tunnel with Su Zimo and Mo Qing, leaving Avici.
Before long, a crack appeared above Asura Monastery and Su Zimo and the other two fell from it.
Yun Zhu’s poison injuries had yet to recover. Mo Qing wrapped her arms around Yun Zhu’s slender waist and descended steadily.
Avici was sinister and dark everywhere. The atmosphere was tense and one could encounter danger at any moment.
After leaving Avici, the three of them felt relieved as though they had seen the light of day once more.
Su Zimo took a deep breath of air and an endless stream of Heaven and Earth Essence Qi surged into his body as though it was corporeal!
It was like dew after a long drought as the Green Lotus True Body absorbed Heaven and Earth Essence Qi wildly, nourishing his flesh, tendons, bones and Essence Spirit.
Su Zimo was at the peak of a Grade 2 Heaven Immortal and had been stuck for many years. Although he had a large number of cultivation resources, he could not break through the bottleneck.
On this trip to Hell, not only did he save the Martial Dao Prime Body, he even obtained treasures such as the Saraca Fruit and Ashoka Tree trunk. He also obtained the inheritance of Emperor Ananda and comprehended two Dharmic seals of the Buddhist monasteries.
Everything happened naturally as Heaven and Earth Essence Qi surged into his body continuously, forming a torrent that broke through the barrier!
Su Zimo’s aura surged and he broke through to the Level 3 Heaven Essence realm within a few breaths after leaving Avici!
His Essence Spirit had already reached the peak of the Level 5 Heaven Essence realm!
The Dragon Phoenix and Green Lotus Essence Spirits were fused together and he cultivated the incomplete Taboo Mystic Classic. His Essence Spirit realm had always surpassed his cultivation by two minor realms.
Now that he cultivated the complete Prajna Nirvana Sutra, Su Zimo’s Essence Spirit became even more condensed.
If he continued cultivating, there was even a chance for his Essence Spirit to surpass him by three minor realms in the Heaven Essence realm!
After Su Zimo broke through, he released his spirit consciousness and scanned the vicinity.
A moment later, he retracted his spirit consciousness and was slightly disappointed.
He did not see any traces of Prince Yuan Zuo.
This time round, on the side of the Great Jin Immortal Kingdom, only Perfected Immortal Jing Yue entered Avici and Prince Yuan Zuo did not follow.
That was the reason why Su Zimo thought that Prince Yuan Zuo might still be nearby.
From the looks of it, Prince Yuan Zuo might have sensed that something was amiss and escaped from this place.
Yun Zhu smiled gently.
Su Zimo smiled as well. He looked at Yun Zhu’s feet and asked, “How are your injuries?”
“It’s fine now.”
Yun Zhu said, “Once I return to the Zi Xuan Immortal Kingdom and recuperate for a period of time, I’ll be able to recover to normal.”
After saying that, their gazes seemed to meet casually.
Yun Zhu could not help but recall the scene in Avici.
At that time, Su Zimo was carrying her on his back and their bodies were almost touching. There were only a few layers of cloth between them and it was extremely intimate.
Back then, the situation was critical and they were in Hell. While it was a little embarrassing, it was nothing much considering the emergency.
Now that she thought about it, Yun Zhu could not help but feel strange.
Right then, a strange laughter sounded. It was distant and close at the same time, erratic and sinister.
“We’ve waited for so long. To think that our opportunities would fall on these three juniors.”
Another voice sounded.
A third voice sighed faintly. “Although the price is a little high, no matter what, it has finally arrived!”
