Chapter 104: Inner Darkness, Soul Backlash – 1
When the Yellow Corpse Sand Dragon appeared, its body was immediately wrapped in countless yellow sandstorms. These powerful sandstorms slammed into Mo Xie’s terrifying royal flame, causing turbulent energy to spread around!!
Feeling the Yellow Corpse Sand Dragon’s power, Mo Xie, who felt provoked, immediately let out a furious call!!
The Yellow Corpse Sand Dragon similarly wasn’t the least bit scared of Mo Xie’s massive Royal Flame Nine Tail Inferno Fox aura. Its five meter large body violently rolled up a powerful sandstorm, and it heavily dashed towards Mo Xie !!
“Yellow Sand Dragon Meteor!”
Xia Guanghan coldly commanded the Yellow Corpse Sand Dragon that he was proud of!
By only running, the Yellow Corpse Sand Dragon could churn up frightening sandstorms. When it casted techniques, these sandstorms would become even stronger. With the leap of the Yellow Corpse Sand Dragon’s body, the permeated sand quickly gathered, making this massive sand dragon a sand mountain. It brought a terrifying, eighth rank power with it as it dived back down!!
“Mo Xie, Nine Tail Dragon Obliteration!”
Realizing that Mo Xie was threatened by the attack of the Yellow Corpse Sand Dragon, Chu Mu didn’t care whether or not if there was a soul pact anymore. He used his remembrance to contain sound, forcefully inserting it into Mo Xie’s mental world.
Mo Xie’s eyes showed a moment of hesitation. Clearly, after losing their soul pact, the synergy between Chu Mu and Mo Xie had lessened, and she even felt repelled by Chu Mu’s command.
But, Mo Xie still didn’t disobey Chu Mu’s battle commands. Tightly holding onto the ground, the nine imposing tails of hers abruptly extended and waved around like nine dragons behind Mo Xie!
Nine Tail Dragon Obliteration was an ability that could directly blend the enemy’s body into powder but, at this moment, the crazily waving nine tails became the last defensive ability. They slammed into the Yellow Corpse Sand Dragon-formed sand meteor with high frequency, quickly peeling through the thick outside layer of the ten meter wide yellow sand mountain.
“Heavenly Flame Rite!”
Chu Mu again compressed his soul remembrance into sound and spoke to Mo Xie.
This time Mo Xie didn’t hesitate. She immediately started to step bizarrely to dodge the weakened Yellow Sand Dragon Meteor as her pupils quickly burned with the royal flame made from demon fire evil flames and blood flames!!
A flame bundle consisting of an outside layer of crimson demon fire evil flames with an inside layer of bright red fell from the night sky!!
The moment it fell down perpendicularly, a large empty hole appeared in the ground stitched with branches. Within the hole, a spiral flame appeared. The flame leapt upwards. It was dazzling and beautiful- full of a dignified heated aura!!
The moment the eighth rank Heavenly Flame Rite swept upwards, the Yellow Corpse Sand Dragon abruptly shifted sideways. Though it was massive, its speed was completely not inferior to some demon monarch ranks!!
Bug type – dragon species soul pets often had terrifying power, extreme agility, powerful defense, resilient life force, and formidable abilities. Almost no soul pet species could compare with this one. Xia Guanghan’s Yellow Corpse Sand Dragon was indeed surprising.
The White Nightmare was completely like a nasty tempered devil. Seeing Mo Xie having trouble with the Yellow Corpse Sand Dragon, it actually abandoned the other two soul pets and directly started attacking the Yellow Corpse Sand Dragon!
The White Nightmare fought completely by instinct. This abandoning of the eighth phase sixth stage Dire Wolf and the seventh phase fourth stage Heavenly Vine Demon completely exposed Chu Mu to the weapons of Xia Guanghan’s soul pets.
How could Xia Guanghan let go of such a stellar opportunity? He immediately commanded his eighth phase sixth stage Dire Wolf to cast Death Assault straight towards Chu Mu.
Seeing the Dire Wolf jump towards Chu Mu, the Night Thunder Dream Beast immediately gathered a Death Ray and spewed it towards the Dire Wolf.
Xia Guanghan’s strengthened Dire Wolf’s speed was also very surprising. The Night Thunder Dream Beast’s three Death Rays didn’t even hit the Dire Wolf!!
The eighth phase sixth stage Dire Wolf extended its sharp claws and viciously swiped them across the Night Thunder Dream Beast’s body. The Night Thunder Dream Beast had already tried to dodge, but the eighth phase sixth stage Dire Wolf’s claw range was immense, creating a shimmering light claw within the dark night as it dragged a long cut on the Night Thunder Dream Beast’s body. At that moment, blood flew out!!
“Night, Night Dance.” Chu Mu was alarmed. Clearly, the sixth phase fifth stage Night Thunder Dream Beast’s power was still far from the Eighth phase sixth stage empowered Dire Wolf. Chu Mu also let the Night Thunder Dream Beast cast Night Dance, making it hide in the dark night!
Mo Xie quickly realized that Chu Mu was in danger. With a sweep of her nine gorgeous silver tails, her figure vanished into the night with a “sou”!!
After the Dire Wolf hurt the Night Thunder Dream Beast, it immediately rolled up a wave of bloody scent as it dashed towards Chu Mu. Its long, Dire Wolf claws were already glinting indigo under the moonlight!!
The Dire Wolf’s claws were already at the seventh rank complete stage. Adding on its power and the effects of its technique, a full blown attack was definitely near the eighth rank. Even if Chu Mu casted his soul armor and ice armor, he would probably still be severely injured!
Just as the Dire Wolf was but five meters away from Chu Mu, Mo Xie’s silver figure brimming with wildness appeared suddenly, crossing splendidly through the Dire Wolf’s path of running. Her long nine tails that dragged behind her abruptly coiled up like a silver tide, completely reeling the Dire Wolf in!
“Nine Tail Flame!”
Chu Mu yelled straight at Mo Xie.
Mo Xie’s tail flames suddenly lifted up with two types of devil flame. The nine tails almost instantly ignited the eighth phase sixth stage Dire Wolf’s skin!!
Xia Guanghan quickly noticed that his Dire Wolf was controlled by the Royal Flame Nine Tail Inferno Fox. Not daring to have any hesitation, he again started an incantation and summoned his fourth soul pet!
After Xia Guanghan cancelled his soul pact with the Earth Fiend Dream Demon, it no longer occupied one of Xia Guanghan’s summoning spots. Additionally, after eating the Soul Healing Stamen, Xia Guanghan’s soul had already slowly healed, so he could still summon another soul pet!
Deep blue devil flames started burning recklessly on Xia Guanghan’s body, causing the entire sky forest to become even more sinister and bleak.
Xia Guanghan’s White Nightmare was already at the eighth phase. This battle had already caused a decent shock throughout the sky forest. Once he summoned his eighth phase White Nightmare, even if it intentionally retracted its aura, the Blue Galactic Demon Emperor would definitely appear. Yet, other than the White Nightmare, Xia Guanghan still had a Blue Nightmare!
This Blue Nightmare was one of the earliest soul pets that Xia Guanghan owned. In the beginning, he was also chased by this Blue Nightmare, almost having his soul eaten multiple times. However, with the growth of Xia Guanghan, the Blue Nightmare could no longer pose a threat to him, and it became completely obedient to Xia Guanghan.
Deep blue flames started swirling as its powerful cold blue devil fire slowly engulfed the White Nightmare’s powerful soul aura!!
The White Nightmare battling the Yellow Corpse Sand Dragon immediately noticed that a Nightmare of its own species had appeared on the battlefield, and it immediately let out an excited devil cry. However, this vile tempered White Nightmare quickly realized its fellow organism’s powerful aura, causing his reckless white devil fire aura to be forcefully subdued!
In front of the same species, Chu Mu’s White Nightmare exposed its most terrifying side. Yet, this White Nightmare clearly met its match, because the Nightmare Xia Guanghan summoned was an eighth phase first stage Blue Nightmare!!
The monarch ranked White Nightmare, even after absorbing Chu Mu’s resentment, only reached the seventh phase. The Blue Nightmare of Xia Guanghan, though, had clearly underwent all sorts of type strengthening. The burning blue devil fire on its body was completely different from the other Blue Nightmares that Chu Mu had met before. It was Ghost Devil Fire, which was many times more terrifying than blue devil fire!
Even if the ghost devil fire’s soul burn couldn’t compare with the pale white devil fire of the White Nightmare, it wasn’t far off. Adding on an entire phase difference between the two soul pets, the insolent White Nightmare’s devil fire aura was naturally suppressed!
“Nie!!!! Nie!!!!” The White Nightmare let out a crazed call. Feeling the aura suppression from the Blue Nightmare that owned ghost devil fire, the guy became even less reasonable, starting to cast random white devil fire techniques!!
“Mo Xie, go help the white devil.” Chu Mu saw that the White Nightmare had fallen into a predicament and immediately told Mo Xie.
Mo Xie’s tail violently whipped, and she directly threw the heavily burnt eighth phase fourth stage Dire Wolf out. Her figure quickly disappeared in spot as she fought her way towards the Blue Nightmare and the Yellow Corpse Sand Dragon!
Xia Guanghan’s Dire Wolf fur had clearly been treated for fire resistance. Under the burn of Mo Xie’s double royal flame, it still didn’t die. After it fell heavily on the floor, it was immediately recalled by Xia Guanghan back into his soul pet space.
The White Nightmare had already vented all its anger towards its same species Blue Nightmare, controlling its white devil fire to slam into the Blue Nightmare’s ghost devil fire. Immediately, the two different cold devil fires lit up the sky forest, causing the entire region to fall into a sea of soul devil fire.
After fighting her way in, Mo Xie immediately created a massive energy wave in her collision with Xia Guanghan’s Yellow Corpse Sand Dragon. The sweeping of the double royal flame and the roiling of the sandstorm permeated the night sky, causing a huge rumble from time to time, shaking the entire sky forest!!
Chapter 104: Inner Darkness, Soul Backlash – 2
The White Nightmare still hadn’t stopped its angered devil cries. Yet, this time, the devil cry was to cast the strangest Other type technique!!
The white devil fire formed a bundle, and it slowly burned a special hoop-shaped symbol into the air. This symbol then strangely became a massless black hole!
The dark night was lit with different colors because of the devil fires and the double royal flames. However, around this strange symbol in the air that the White Nightmare cast, there was no color, completely like the space had a discontinuity at that area. One could see the unknown inner workings of space itself in that area……
Nightmare White Hole! The Nightmare White Hole didn’t belong to any type of technique, and it wielded strange and mysterious power!!
When the Nightmare White Hole formed, Xia Guanghan, who knew of White Nightmare techniques, creased his brows and quickly started chanting an incantation!
The ghost devil fire started wavering, and from within the Nightmare White Hole, a strange breath was exhaled. This breath was like a gust of devil wind that blew in from the vast, unknown worlds. When the devil wind passed, the ghost devil fire that the Blue Nightmare released suddenly vanished. Even the sandstorm realm released by the Yellow Corpse Sand Dragon that Mo Xie was battling intensely had parts of it devoured!
Soul pet trainer technique – Demonfall – spirit master technique. It was able to drastically increase any evil soul pet’s power!
Demonfall was different from Violent Blood Pupil. Violent Blood Pupil directly stimulated a soul pet’s potential and their bloodiness, causing them to raise a certain phase or stage. However, Demonfall straight up increased the power crystal a soul pet owned.
At this time, Xia Guanghan casted Demonfall precisely to increase the Blue Nightmare’s ghost devil fire powers!!
Maybe before, the Blue Nightmare’s ghost devil fire was weaker than the White Nightmare’s pale white devil fire, but after the effects of Demonfall had been imbued onto the Blue Nightmare, its ghost devil fire became even purer. Its cold and ghostly aura had completely beaten out the White Nightmare’s pale white devil fire now!
The pure ghost devil fire, under the effects of Demon Fall, created a complete suppression on the White Nightmare’s pale white devil fire. The White Nightmare’s Other type ability formed with its pale white devil fire as the base also immediately lost its clear effect, and the ghost devil fire started surging again!
Feeling suppressed again, the vile White Nightmare became even more angered by the humiliation. Its two strange eyes no longer blinked with a terrifying torch-like glow but instead blinked with a soul-shivering blood light!
Chu Mu was connected mentally with the white devil. At this point, Chu Mu could feel a massive surge of anger rise up from within the White Nightmare after being suppressed by a member of the same species.
An even more frightening devil cry came out. This sound was like countless icy daggers, piercing straight through a person’s body and towards their soul!!
Its two pupils blinked bloodily, demonically, evilly, and terrifyingly!
Ruthlessness, anger, jealousy, and other powerful negative emotions let Chu Mu feel the true darkness within the White Nightmare’s heart. Once one fell within, one would never be able to leave. One would only able to dwell forever in the dark emotions in a struggle for life!
Suddenly, the White Nightmare moved. As if it already knew that it wasn’t a match for the eighth phase first stage Blue Nightmare, it started moving……
The white devil fire body was like a shadow in front of Chu Mu, sliding past the white devil shadows, actually returning back to Chu Mu.
A devil cry sounded out, and the white devil fire was suddenly released from the White Nightmare’s lower body, creating a strange, white devil ring that forcefully followed the messy branches on the ground. It burned away the heavenly vines that were trying to ambush Chu Mu!
Chu Mu stared blankly, and he glanced at the quickly retracting heavenly vines before realizing that Xia Guanghan’s Heavenly Vine Demon had already neared him. If not for the White Nightmare suddenly releasing its devil fire, he very likely would’ve been hurt by the sneaky heavenly vines!
The white devil was like Chu Mu’s devil fire burning shadow. Standing in front of Chu Mu, it specially turned its head around, and it sent a strange call towards the Blue Nightmare, full of its previous negative emotions.
Chu Mu couldn’t understand the White Nightmare’s actions. Was it trying to return into his soul pet space because it couldn’t defeat the Blue Nightmare?
Xia Guanghan’s eyes watched Chu Mu’s White Nightmare from afar. Seeing the terrifying red glow coming from the White Nightmare’s eyes, Xia Guanghan seemed to suddenly remember something. His face became strange, as if he was excited, yet also wary!
A shrill scream suddenly sounded out next to Chu Mu. Just as he was thinking, the White Nightmare let a hair raising call that shook Chu Mu’s mental world.
At the same time, Chu Mu abruptly felt the White Nightmare that had an identical body shape as his stepped towards him!!
Just as the White Nightmare forcefully slammed into Chu Mu’s body as a devil fire soul, Chu Mu frighteningly felt the mental message relayed to him by the White Nightmare!!
It was eating its owner’s soul to raise its own strength!!
The Blue Nightmare’s power completely triggered the vile White Nightmare. In the situation where Chu Mu couldn’t control his mental state, it felt that Chu Mu no longer was of any value, and it started to devour Chu Mu’s soul!!
Seeing the White Nightmare turn around and devour its owner, Xia Guanghan immediately stared blankly. This White Nightmare was received by Xia Guanghan from the White Nightmare palace master. It was said to be the offspring of an incredibly scary White Nightmare. Even if the soul pet trainer had the ability to control it, if that White Nightmare was angered and had enough negative emotions, it would frighteningly start devouring its owner’s soul, strengthening itself on the master’s soul and then using that strength to defeat the foe that dared anger it!!
Chu Mu’s White Nightmare was precisely that terrifying White Nightmare’s offspring. The reason Xia Guanghan didn’t dare to sign a soul pact with it was also because of this!!
At this moment, the White Nightmare crashed into Chu Mu’s body. This terrifying scene meant that it was trying to devour Chu Mu’s soul to forcefully raise its own power!!
Xia Guanghan wanted to laugh out loud. He wanted to laugh at the fact that Chu Mu hadn’t realized that the white devil within him was the evilest of evil soul pets, ready to devour its master’s soul at any time. However, Xia Guanghan also realized that if the White Nightmare devoured Chu Mu’s soul, it would definitely become much more powerful, and it would become even harder to struggle free from this deranged devil!!
Through countless deep nights, Chu Mu had to endure the scariest soul burn from the white devil fire. Every day, Chu Mu had to worry if the White Nightmare was going to devour his soul.
Yet, Chu Mu didn’t think that this day would finally come!!
Seeing the White Nightmare starting to devour Chu Mu’s soul, Mo Xie abruptly swept the Yellow Corpse Sand Dragon away, and she ran crazily towards Chu Mu, forcefully wrapping her tail around the White Nightmare that was entering Chu Mu’s body.
If Mo Xie and Chu Mu still had a soul pact, it would help with the mental confrontation against the White Nightmare, and they could forcefully drive out the White Nightmare’s soul. Yet, without any soul pacts, no matter how much Mo Xie cried out, she could only watch as Chu Mu’s soul was getting conquered bit by bit by the White Nightmare. He was getting eaten by the White Nightmare!
Her silver pupils were again moist. She could only let out heart wrenching calls……
Though his vision was slowly being overtaken by white burning devil fire, when Chu Mu saw that Mo Xie still felt sorrow for him, Chu Mu smiled.
Even without a soul pact, Mo Xie still wouldn’t forget the person that accompanied her through life and death along with the severing of the pact……
Drops of crimson blood dripped from the night sky as the Night Thunder Dream Beast also let out a worried call, slowly appearing from its Night Dance state……
“Hui~~~~~~~~~~” A neigh sounded, and the Night Thunder Dream Beast’s eyes changed from sadness to determination. Casting Night Dance again, its eyes locked onto the center of the sky forest……
Run!! The Night Thunder Dream Beast dragged its hurt body and started running, resolutely running towards the deepest parts of the powerful Blue Galactic Demon Emperor’s aura, towards the center full of danger and the purest demonic aura!!
On the Night Thunder Dream Beast was a bloody wound ripped open by the Dire Wolf. As it started running without pause, the grim and shocking red splattered, droplet by droplet- each sparkling and translucent……
Xia Guanghan only needed to glance to see the Night Thunder Dream Beast running in the night, but Xia Guanghan didn’t mind it at all. He immediately commanded his other soul pets to attack Chu Mu’s Mo Xie.
Xia Guanghan didn’t understand why Chu Mu’s Night Thunder Dream Beast was doing everything it can to run, but Chu Mu understood. When Chu Mu saw his Night Thunder Dream Beast slowly disappear into the deep forest that was home to powerful demons, his eyes again filled with tears!!
Chu Mu was at the edge of the ninth remembrance spirit teacher already, and needed only a tiny bit more to reach the spirit master remembrance. If any one of his soul pets could experience a large increase in power, Chu Mu would definitely have a hope in reaching spirit master!
The Night Thunder Dream Beast’s bloodied running straight into the center of danger was exactly for this tiny bit of soul elevation Chu Mu needed!!
At this moment, Chu Mu could no longer use words to explain the rolling emotions in his heart, and was only able to express it with the tears brimming his eyes!
