Chapter 918: Waiting for an Opportunity
Su Zimo was the only one who could remain calm on the spirit vessel.
Su Zimo had fought his way through and was invincible among his peers. He had never tasted defeat and had already accumulated an invincible aura. As such, his mental state was tough and unshakable.
Furthermore, back when he was fighting for the Heaven Slaying Sword Art in Thousand Demon Valley, he had fought against many Overlords and three top Dharma Characteristic Dao Lords.
Dao Lord Extreme Fire was the one that borrowed his body for the short clash at that time.
However, with that experience, Su Zimo would not panic when facing a Dharma Characteristic Dao Lord.
Nangong Ling and the other two had lived for more than 200 years but had never experienced something like this.
In the face of a Dharma Characteristic Dao Lord, they felt despair and were stunned by the words of the old man from Hellfire Hall.
The three of them were panicking and had completely broken down!
The old man from Hellfire Hall narrowed his eyes and chuckled when he saw Su Zimo on the spirit vessel.
“Kid, you’ve only lived for a little more than a hundred years. It’s truly rare for you to have such a temperament.”
The old man from Hellfire Hall laughed weirdly and changed the topic. “The reason why you’re so calm is because you’re waiting for the experts of Hundred Refinement Sect to come and save you, right?”
Su Zimo was silent.
He believed that Hundred Refinement Sect would definitely be alerted if the four of them had not returned for a day!
Perhaps, experts of the sect were already on the way to save them!
The old man from Hellfire Hall grinned. “I might as well tell you that it’s too late even if Hundred Refinement Sect manages to react!”
Nangong Ling and the other two looked despondent.
It was as though everything was within the control of the old man from Hellfire Hall and they had no chance of escaping!
Liu Hanyan and Ru Xuan could not move at all. They could only cry silently as their bodies trembled.
“Old man, you don’t look like you have much time left either. You don’t have much lifespan left and you’re nearing the end of it,”
Su Zimo looked at the old man of Hellfire Hall and sneered, “Fufu, even if we die, how long can you live for? 30 years? 100 years?”
When he heard Su Zimo’s sneer, Nangong Ling glanced sideways and thought to himself, ‘Little Uncle-Master is truly fearless. Even at this point, he can still smile.’
I can’t compare to his boldness in the face of death.
As he thought about it, Nangong Ling grit his teeth and felt an adrenaline rush as he thought to himself, ‘Since I’m going to die anyway, I might as well curse to my heart’s content before I die!’
At that thought, Nangong Ling threw caution to the wind and cursed, “Old dog, what’s the use of cultivating to the Dharma Characteristic realm? You’re still going to die! Hahaha, I’ll wait for you down there, you old fart!”
The old man from Hellfire Hall was trembling with rage.
Su Zimo and Nangong Ling’s words had indeed struck a sore spot.
No matter how high his cultivation realm was, he could not withstand the corrosion of time.
With a dark expression and a cold gaze, the old man from Hellfire Hall said coldly, “Even if I only have 80 years left, I’ll live longer than you brats!”
When he heard that, Su Zimo’s heart skipped a beat and he lowered his head slightly to hide the killing intent in his eyes.
The old man from Hellfire Hall grit his teeth. “Don’t worry, I’ll definitely kill you brats before I die!”
The moment he said that, the glabella of the old man from Hellfire Hall flickered as he released an extremely terrifying and majestic spirit consciousness. It descended with a bang and struck the consciousnesses of Su Zimo and the other three!
Nangong Ling and the other two shuddered. Their Essence Spirits dimmed significantly after being struck by the spirit consciousness and fainted on the spot.
Su Zimo collapsed limply as well.
Waving his robes, the old man from Hellfire Hall swept Su Zimo’s group of four into a gigantic dark cloud and disappeared from the spot with the seven Void Reversions.
The spirit vessel that was carrying Su Zimo’s group of four lost its support of Dharmic powers and hovered for a moment before descending.
The night returned to normal.
The dark clouds carried Su Zimo and the others at an extremely fast speed.
“We’ve done a great deed this time round. Capturing the three of them is equivalent to seizing Dao Lord Scarlet Star’s Achilles’ Heel!”
“That’s right. It’s all thanks to Senior Yu.”
“That’s right. We’ve benefited from Senior Yu as well.”
The seven Void Reversions flattered him again.
The old man from Hellfire Hall clasped his hands behind his back expressionlessly and said indifferently, “If I can fail against four Nascent Soul realm brats, my 10,000 years of life would have been wasted!”
When he heard the sounds around him, Su Zimo fell to the side. Although he was conscious, he did not move and tried his best to control his emotions.
Even his heartbeat and blood flow was maintained at a constant state!
If it was just a Void Reversion, there was no need for him to be so cautious.
However, the old man from Hellfire Hall was a Dharma Characteristic Dao Lord!
Although he was already in his twilight years, Su Zimo did not dare to be careless!
The reason why he was able to remain conscious was not because the old man from Hellfire Hall had failed.
In his consciousness, the black-haired Essence Spirit had indeed fainted.
Even with the protection of the Creation Green Lotus, the black-haired Essence Spirit could not defend against the attack of the old man’s spirit consciousness!
However, there was another Essence Spirit in Su Zimo’s consciousness!
A scarlet-haired Yin Spirit formed from cultivating the Mystic Classic of the Twelve Demon Kings of the Great Wilderness!
At that moment, the scarlet-haired Yin Spirit was hiding in a corner of his consciousness with a calm expression, waiting patiently for an opportunity to strike.
As long as he seized this opportunity, it was not impossible for him to kill the old man from Hellfire Hall!
Of course, all of that had to be done before they returned to Hellfire Hall.
If he entered the territory of Hellfire Hall, even if he could kill the old man and the other seven Void Reversions, he would definitely alert the experts of Hellfire Hall and be captured.
They had been speeding for more than two hours.
Su Zimo had a rough idea of the location of Hellfire Hall. If they were traveling at full speed with Dharmic weapons controlled by Dharmic Dao Lords, they would arrive within four hours!
Time was running out!
Once he entered Hellfire Hall, he would have no choice but to wait for death no matter how powerful he was!
Su Zimo was getting anxious as well.
In fact, he was wondering if he should get up and fight right now!
But soon, he gave up on that thought.
The dark clouds were huge and Su Zimo’s group of four was still in the middle. Although the seven Void Reversions were close to them, the old man from Hellfire Hall stood at the front of the dark clouds.
The two of them were a hundred feet apart!
If Su Zimo made any strange movements, the old man from Hellfire Hall would have noticed it before he even got close to the latter.
There was a 90% chance that his plan would fail!
Su Zimo composed himself and continued waiting!
The longer this dragged on, the less chances he had.
But now, he could only wait!
He did not have a second chance against a Dharma Characteristic Dao Lord.
If he miscalculated, Nangong Ling and the other two would die as well!
Right then, the old man from Hellfire Hall who was at the front suddenly turned around and walked towards Su Zimo.
The seven Void Reversions bowed hurriedly.
The old man from Hellfire Hall nodded and looked down at Su Zimo’s group of four with a dark gaze, seemingly deep in thought.
“Senior, is there a problem?”
A Void Reversion asked softly.
“It’s a pity that my lifespan is almost up. What a waste of this great physical body,”
The old man from Hellfire Hall shook his head and sighed. Squatting down, he reached out with his skinny palm and pinched Su Zimo’s arm. Licking his lips, he said, “If I had met him a few years ago, I would rather give up my body and assimilate him!”
“Is that so?”
Initially, the old man from Hellfire Hall was lamenting to himself. To his surprise, he heard a reply that was chilling and murderous!
