Chapter 864: Dao of the Fiend
Outside the Blood Sea, a massive battle ensued.
Su Zimo who was within the Blood Sea was none the wiser.
Although the duration was not long, the Blood Refinement Fiend Sutra was extremely domineering. With that fiend technique, he had already absorbed most of the energy within the Thousand Year Blood Sea.
After the breakthrough of the scarlet-haired Yin Spirit, the black-haired Essence Spirit had also broken through to late-stage Nascent Soul!
The continuous flow of energy surged into Su Zimo’s body, tempering his body and refining his Essence Spirit.
Under the baptism of that energy, his body became much stronger!
His cultivation realm was rising rapidly as well!
The amount of energy that was enough to provide for ten mid-level fiend demons was now absorbed by Su Zimo entirely.
This effect could shock the entire world!
Su Zimo let out a deep growl and his flesh expanded continuously!
His figure grew rapidly at an uncontrollable pace as well.
Before long, he was fifty feet tall!
Furthermore, his growth did not seem like it was about to stop!
If anybody was within the Blood Sea, they would discover to their shock that Su Zimo’s skin had already split apart – it looked horrific with dense blood scars!
It was as though his body could explode at any moment!
In reality, it was lucky that Su Zimo was the one in this position. If it was anybody else, they would have exploded if they dared to absorb all the energy of the Blood Sea within such a short period of time.
His bloodline churned and his powerful regeneration capabilities healed the wounds on his body continuously.
Before he was fully healed, his wounds split apart again!
As his figure grew, more wounds opened up on that terrifying and muscular body!
He was riddled with immense pain.
However, there was no hint of suffering within Su Zimo’s eyes. Instead, there was a sinister look of excitement!
The peak of late-stage Nascent Soul!
With the augmentation from such a large amount of pure energy, his cultivation realm exploded and within a short period of time, he was already at late-stage Nascent Soul realm!
It seemed as though his body was filled with boundless energy.
The feeling of control was amazing and intoxicating!
The reason why many fiend techniques were called fiend techniques was because their methods were extremely brutal and oftentimes, the person who cultivated them would receive immense power within a short period of time!
The increase in strength would also raise the cultivator’s dependence on the fiend technique. If his foundation was not firm, his nature would change as well.
He would become cruel, bloodthirsty and resort to despicable means!
At the end, he would sink into the Dao of the fiends entirely.
At that moment, Su Zimo showed signs of sinking into the Dao of the fiends!
The Blood Refinement Fiend Sutra was domineering and sinister.
Su Zimo had always been resistant towards it from the depths of his heart.
That was the reason why he would not choose to use it most of the time.
However, after he killed the fiend demon of Levitating Goat Peak and the other five, Su Zimo realized that he did not have much time left.
It won’t be long before the Overlord of Levitating Goat Peak and the others found out about what happened within the Blood Sea.
Therefore, he could only rely on the Blood Refinement Fiend Sutra if he wanted to absorb all the energy of the Blood Sea within the shortest period of time!
As he expected, with the absorption power of the Blood Refinement Fiend Sutra, he had already absorbed at least 80% of the Blood Sea’s energy!
His cultivation realm surged rapidly as well.
If he had been cultivating normally, it would take him dozens of years worth of effort to reach peak late-stage Nascent Soul from late-stage Nascent Soul.
However, with the boost of the Blood Refinement Fiend Sutra, Su Zimo was already at this realm in less than 15 minutes!
This was the terror of a fiend technique!
Subconsciously, Su Zimo smacked his lips and his massive figure stood upright within the Blood Sea. His eyes were bloodshot and he resembled a fiend that had just walked out of Hell!
It was way too amazing!
In fact, thoughts crossed his mind one after another.
He wanted to charge out of the Blood Sea and kill all the living beings to devour their bloodlines completely!
As long as he could refine sufficient fresh blood, he could achieve breakthroughs within the shortest period of time and become a Void Reversion or even Dharma Characteristic!
Nobody in this world could stand in his way!
This world could not hold him back either!
With that, he would be able to catch up to Die Yue in the fastest possible speed and even get to meet her!
‘Eh… how would Die Yue’s bloodline taste like?’
Su Zimo jolted out of his stupor the moment that thought crossed his mind!
He felt chills all over his body and his hair stood on end. Although he was within the Blood Sea, he was drenched in cold sweat out of fear!
It was way too scary!
How could that be?
How could I have had such thoughts?!
Su Zimo’s eyes were widened with terror, filled with bewilderment.
Although he had the same craving for blood when he released the Blood Refinement Fiend Sutra in the past, his Dao Heart had never wavered.
He was somebody who inherited the essence of the immortal and Buddhist sects as well as cultivated their top-tier cultivation techniques.
He had even studied Buddhism at the bottom of the Dragon Burial Valley for 20 years and eventually severed his attachments to the mortal realm. Although the Blood Refinement Fiend Sutra was domineering, it was not enough to taint him.
However, if the frightening thought of harming Die Yue had not crossed his mind earlier on, he might not have snapped out of his stupor.
In fact, there was a chance that he might fall into the Dao of the fiends forever, unable to crawl out of it ever again!
Su Zimo felt a lingering fear in his heart.
“Om… Ma… Ni… Pa… Mi… Hom!”
Sanskrit echoed through his mind.
The black-haired Essence Spirit assumed a lotus position on the Creation Green Lotus with a lowered gaze. He sang Buddhist sutras like an old monk and exuded a brilliant golden light!
Within his consciousness, there were rays of resplendent lights that filled the entire place in a dazzling manner. Immortal qi was abound and Buddhist lights spread.
Under the continuous echo of the powerful Sanskrit, the blood glint in Su Zimo’s eyes gradually faded and he regained clarity in his thoughts once more.
Su Zimo narrowed his eyes and his gaze flickered.
Earlier on, did he change because he had released the Blood Refinement Fiend Sutra way too many times and everything accumulated till this point?
Did his Dao Heart waver because his cultivation realm had increased way too rapidly?
Or was it because… of some other reason?!
Su Zimo looked down slightly and caught sight of the bottomless, ghastly Blood Sea beneath him. Suddenly, the blood-colored human face flashed through his eyes once again!
The face seemed like it was smiling at him!
A sinister and frightening aura that could send shivers down one’s spine spread through the Blood Sea!
Su Zimo shrugged his head.
Suddenly, he heard activity coming from the surface of the sea.
After the splashing sounds, seven figures dove into the Blood Sea. They exuded an incomparably domineering aura and sped towards him!
These are… high-level fiend demons!
Su Zimo sensed it and was alarmed.
He could see it clearly – the seven high-level fiend demons should be from Levitating Goat Peak; none of them were from Ape Chatter Ridge or Golden Flames Mountain!
This was big!
It did not take Su Zimo long to realize that something massive must have happened outside the Blood Sea.
What should he do?
Su Zimo’s mind spun as the seven figures approached rapidly.
Although he had many trump cards, he had almost nothing that could pose a proper threat to high-level fiend demons.
Although Barren of the Mystic Classic of the Twelve Demon Kings of the Great Wilderness could affect high-level fiend demons, it was not of much importance.
He had only comprehended the tip of the iceberg for Barren and had yet to realize its true essence. Even if he released it against the high-level fiend demons at close distance, he would only decrease their lifespans at the speed of a hundred years per breath.
For high-level fiend demons whose lifespans were up to 10,000 years long, a hundred breaths per breath was nothing much.
However, these high-level fiend demons could kill him ten times within a single breath!
