The booming of all the magic arts was still echoing in the mountains, along with miserable screams. The ominous premonition was approaching! Soon, they could see several figures escaping crazily up in the sky. It seemed like they were being chased by something!
Xu Que frowned as he checked out the mountains with his Soul Strength, but could find nothing behind them.
What are they escaping from?
Then, Xu Que waved his hand to create a cloud of magnificent strength in the sky, which stopped the escaping people like an invisible giant hand.
“My fellow cultivators, please hold on a moment!” Xu Que yelled.
However, it seemed as if all the people had been badly scared. They continued to run forward crazily and just ignored Xu Que’s voice.
Along with several dull sounds, the people fell down directly like flies that had been knocked down by a flyswatter.
“Eh…this is so weird!” Xu Que waved the sleeve of his robe. Then, a cloud of gentle strength in the form of seawater wrapped those people up and sent them to the ground safely. The people were as pale as ghosts because of terror. They stood up and were about to run away again, but they were restrained where they had fallen by the seawater created by Xu Que.
They started to shout, “Run, run for your lives!”
“My fellow cultivators, nothing is behind you. What are you afraid of? What happened in that place?” Xu Que walked up and asked.
Hearing Xu Que’s question, the cultivators turned around abruptly. Then they sat down on the ground, as they let out sighs of relief. With lingering fear on their faces,you could see that their foreheads were covered by cold sweat.
“Just tell us what happened up in those mountains?” Buttface, fierce-looking, rushed up and shouted.
The cultivators, who had already been badly frightened, were surprised by Buttface and almost broke down again.
“That’s enough, Buttface! My fellow cultivators, what happened?” Xu Que asked again. He was getting a little bit impatient.
At this time, one cultivator, whose lips were still trembling, looked at Xu Que and said in terror, “There are…Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes in those mountains – countless Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes! After so many years, the Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes have reappeared in the Road of Heavenly Ascension! We are doomed! We are doomed!”
“Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes?” Xu Que was surprised. Apparently, he had never heard of this species before!
“Oh, no!” Jiang Hongyan frowned and said in a low voice, “If the Heaven- Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes really have reappeared, we have to leave immediately!”
“Are the Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes…so horrible?” Xu Que asked curiously.
Although the name was quite intimidating, it can’t be so horrible! If we run away before a fight, I won’t have time to act tough! This is not the style of the Exploding Heavens Faction!
“The Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquito is like the living dead! If you smash its body, it can still be alive! It can only be killed by smashing its head precisely! However, the Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquito can also multiply rapidly. It sucks cultivators’ blood. When a cultivator’s blood is sucked by this kind of mosquito, over 1,000 Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes will be generated from the cultivator’s body. It is impossible to kill all the mosquitoes!”
After saying that, Jiang Hongyan said dubiously as she shook her head slightly, “According to my knowledge, the Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes were eradicated more than 5,000 years ago! How could they reappear now?”
The living dead? It can only be killed by hitting its head! It also sucks blood and reproduces in people’s bodies!
Damn! Is it the combination of zombie, vampire, and alien?
Also, it must be an upgraded version of aliens, for it can reproduce more than 1,000 mosquitoes in the body of one person!
Xu Que was surprised. However, he let out a sigh of relief after hearing the last sentence of Jiang Hongyan’s words, “Little girl, you said this species were eradicated more than 5,000 years ago. Does that mean that we can also do it now?”
“No, it was possible at that time, but I’m afraid it is impossible to do that now!”
Jiang Hongyan shook her head seriously. “I’ve learned it from some ancient books. More than 5,000 years ago, the entire Xuanzhen Continent was almost ruined by more than 1,000 Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes! Countless people died at that time. Within one day, the quantity of the Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes had been increased to more than 100 million. Even powerhouses at the Great Vehicle Stage couldn’t defeat them. At last, 20 cultivators at the Celestial Realm Stage worked together to eradicate the Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes. Among them, one cultivator at the Celestial Realm Stage sacrificed his life during the fight!”
“What? You mean 20 cultivators at the Celestial Realm Stage worked together, and one of them was even killed!” Xu Que was surprised.
I guess we really have to escape now!
Even cultivators at the Celestial Realm Stage can be killed by these mosquitoes! This is horrible!
“This is what the records in the ancient books say. Almost everyone in the Xuanzhen Continent knows this! It was a major disaster! Without those cultivators at the Celestial Realm Stage, the Xuanzhen Continent would have been ruined in several days!” Jiang Hongyan nodded her head. When she looked at that mountain again, her expression had become unprecedentedly serious and worried.
At the same time, the cultivators who had escaped had also come to themselves gradually. They stood up and said in terror, “My fellow cultivators, let’s just leave here! The Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes could even devour the Heavens! I’m afraid the Road of Heavenly Ascension will be ruined! We can’t stay here!”
“Wait! Just tell me how did these Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes reappear in this world?” Xu Que asked.
The cultivators changed their expressions slightly and started to stare at each other speechlessly. It seemed they didn’t want to tell the truth.
Xu Que frowned and said seriously, “You have three breaths to tell me the truth; or I won’t mind throwing you back into that mountain again!”
Hearing that, the cultivators trembled a bit. Then, they said hurriedly, “My fellow cultivator, we don’t have anything to do with this issue! The Saint Palace distributed a Celestial Searching Map! They said that a certain way led to the end of the Road of Heavenly Ascension. As long as we walked along that way from the entrance of the valley, we would find the opportunity to become Celestials!”
“The Saint Palace?” Jiang Hongyan frowned a bit when she heard that.
The cultivators said, nodding their heads, “Right! This is the map distributed by the Saint Palace! It is said that this map is a replica of an ancient map!”
One of them took out a map that was printed on a hide and handed it to Jiang Hongyan.
Then, they continued to say, “We went to that place together with the people of the Saint Palace. Then, we smashed the giant stone together! But we didn’t expect the nest of the Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes was behind that stone! When the stone was smashed, all the mosquitoes flew out!”
“More than 3,000 people were killed instantly! Luckily, we were at the rear part of the group, so we managed to run away!” After saying that, some of them even started to weep. They wept because they managed to survive the attack of the mosquitoes or because they had just remembered the bloody scene!
Xu Que could also imagine that scene – when the stone was smashed, their team members died one after another in front of them. They also saw thousands of new Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes come out from the corpses of their team members and continue to devour the rest of them!
In this way, at least 3 million new Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes would be generated from those 3,000 people! This was really horrible!
“No way! If there are really so many Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes in that mountain, why are none of them trying to chase you?” Xu Que asked dubiously. He kept searching the mountain, but found nothing besides these cultivators.
“The mosquitoes flew away along that road!” one cultivator replied immediately. “I noticed most Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes flew into the valley. I guess something there is attracting them!”
“For the Heaven-Devouring Demonic Mosquitoes, the thing that is more attractive than the blood of cultivators could only be the Celestial’s Blood!” Another cultivator said in terror.
The Celestial’s Blood?
“Little brat, come and see this map!” Jiang Hongyan said and handed the map provided by the cultivators just now to Xu Que. Xu Que looked at the map and found a detailed route on it. Beside the route, there were some ancient characters, which looked like the diary or last words written by an ancient cultivator!
After reading those characters rapidly, Xu Que’s expression changed, and he widened his eyes immediately. He fixed his eyes on several words and shouted in surprise, “The Space-Breaking Spell”!
