Chapter 883: The beginning of death
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
What did you say?”
That world esper turned sober and abruptly raised his head to stare at Su Hao, “If you can save him back, I will spare your life.”
“Hmpphh, spare my life, huh?” Su Hao laughed. When others thought that he was about to rage, he responded differently, “Alright then.”
Everyone was stunned.
This guy was so ferocious and now was terrified?
But then, the crowd was able to sigh in relief. This is great. If there is any internal fighting at this moment, it would be a mess. Only Chen Ge had his eyelids twitched. Su Hao was terrified? Who the hell will believe that? Damn, are you telling some kind of joke? This brat had never been terrified from young till now!
What was he planning to do?
Chen Ge faintly felt that something was amiss.
In the warship, Su Hao closed both eyes for a bit as if he was comprehending something. When everyone was wondering, he suddenly spoke.
“You take three steps back and walk five meters diagonally.”
“Based on what?” That world esper sneered.
“If you want to save your disciple, just do it.” Su Hao sighed, and his tone had softened.
“Humph, hope that you’re not lying to me or else….” That world esper smirked and walked toward the position said by Su Hao. He wanted to see what Su Hao would do next. Suddenly he felt a shock and saw a horrifying shadow rushed up. Before he managed to react, he already saw a huge mouth swallowing him.
That shadow disappeared again.
Everyone on the flame warship was startled. They didn’t understand what had happened. When they recovered, they finally realized.
That world esper actually died!
He died just like that?
“Oh, I forget to say. He might not die also meant that he might die. However, looking at that thing which is so furious, it probably had finished digesting the previous one, right?” Su Hao whispered. Those who heard his words had goosebumps. He actually sent a world esper to the enemy’s mouth!
“You!” King of Fire immediately became angry.
“Well, I didn’t say anything wrong.” Su Hao smiled indifferently, “Although this giant dark fish had eaten his disciple, he might still be rescued on time, so I let him stand there and wait for the dark fish to appear so he can kill it. Then, his disciple would be rescued, right? Unfortunately, he failed.”
“Such a pity.” Su Hao added another sentence that nearly caused King of Fire to be angered to death.
“You!” King of Fire’s anger had reached the point of extreme.
“Can you kill me though?” Su Hao’s eyes suddenly glanced over him, and King of Fire froze for a second. What did he mean by that?
“Shut up if you can’t kill me.” Su Hao’s eyes had lost his patience, and his cold gaze swept across King of Fire’s disciple, “Otherwise, I don’t mind sending you and your disciple down there next.”
King of Fire went cold.
He was very angry. Just a mere domain esper had the guts to threaten him?
However, when he thought of Su Hao’s sentence just now, he stopped saying what he was about to say. Especially when he noticed Chen Ge’s smirk, the more he didn’t want to add any words. He wasn’t afraid of Chen Ge, but he understood that since he couldn’t kill this brat, why the need to confront him?
If his disciple is to die unexpectedly…
Looking at his disciple, King of Fire didn’t say anything. Today, both Chen Ge and his disciple had revealed something strange that made him feel that something was amiss. Because of this, he had been provocative in every possible way and wanted to see what Chen Ge would do, but if it might get his disciple in the crossfire. That wasn’t something he wished for.
The other world espers were stunned, looking at this scene. They thought that King of Fire would lose control of himself, but he got shocked by this brat instead.
The atmosphere regained its calmness.
Obviously, no one would have thought that at this time, the person who shocked them would be Chen Ge’s disciple who hadn’t broken through yet! This guy was not ordinary. Wan Cheng’s eyes flashed inexplicably. This familiar style…
“What’s your name?” A world esper suddenly asked, “You have the qualification for me to remember your name.”
“Me?” Su Hao smiled coldly, “Wu Ming.”
“Oh.” That man nodded and thought about it carefully, “Wu Ming? Nameless?”
Everyone was shocked. Is this his real name or a pseudonym?
“Wu Ming.” Wan Cheng repeated before suddenly smiling.
“Alright, I will assume you’re Wu Ming then.” That world esper took a deep breath and was too lazy to think whether it’s a real name or a pseudonym, “Since the dark fish is the disaster caused by the spiritual sea storm, then do you know where this dark fish comes from? How did you discover its movement? For example, just now?”
When he said to the end, he didn’t describe in detail.
However, everyone knew what he meant. Just now, that pair of master and disciple already died. To offend Wu Ming for two dead men, that was obviously not worthy.
“Just now, when you all were confronting the torrent, I was inspecting the surroundings.” Su Hao said indifferently, “That dark fishes in the sky vanished, but we just pushed them back and did not kill them.”
Naturally, if they managed to push them back, that was already quite an achievement with the situation. If they were to kill the fishes one by one, they would have exhausted their Rule Force instead.
“Those fishes that didn’t die reentered Taihu Territory. So, I began to observe their movement within the lake. Each dark fish seemed to be swimming toward the same place. Under some reaction, those fishes combined.”
“In other words…”
Everyone’s face turned ugly, “That giant fish is a fusion of the dark fishes that hadn’t been killed before?”
“If I didn’t guess incorrectly, yeah.” Su Hao spread out his hands.
Everyone looked at each other. They had already witnessed the power of the dark fishes. If they merged, then this giant dark fish would be terrifying. Two world espers were killed silently. When the crowd was worried, Su Hao suddenly looked at Wan Cheng.
“Wan Cheng, evade!”
Wan Cheng evaded without hesitation.
A black shadow flashed and rubbed against Wan Cheng’s side before falling back into Taihu Territory. Everyone’s forehead once again showed a layer of cold sweat. What terrifying speed!
Each time, they were unaware.
This heaven-defying detection ability of Wu Ming, when they thought of it, it was Wu Ming who reminded everyone when the spiritual sea storm just started. This guy… Everyone looked at the calm lake. Whether it’s Rule Force or origin energy, no one could catch any fluctuation caused by the dark fish.
“My sensing ability got blocked by the lake water.”
“I totally can’t see anything under the lake at all.”
Everyone glanced at each other. Now only they knew how terrifying Wu Ming is. A world esper reluctantly asked, “How did you sense it? Is there an origin technique that can do that?”
This question shouldn’t have been asked in the first place. After all, origin techniques are an individual’s personal privacy. However, seeing this person speak, the crowd also had their ears up. In front of a crisis, one can put own their dignity aside first. Su Hao looked at this group of espers whose curiosity skyrocketed with a smile, “There is.”
Everyone was stunned for a second, “There is really such a thing?”
“En, a specialized origin technique that captures its movement.” Su Hao said in a low voice.
Everyone smiled bitterly.
What talent does Wu Ming have? Space talent! He was the only one with such talent here! It seemed that they could only rely on him to eliminate the dark fish. Thinking of this, everyone looked at Su Hao’s expression that remained at ease till now.
Su Hao’s eyes flashed coldly.
This lake shielded everything, so then how did he detect it? He found out about the dark fish by completely relying on Synchronize Space and Illusion Reality! Each ripple on the lake might be caused by the dark fish wiggling its tail quietly somewhere.
Under multiple layers of analysis, he had been able to roughly grasp the position of the dark fish.
Angle, direction, the magnitude of fluctuation…
With three points and one line, Su Hao could easily pinpoint the position of the fish! If everyone knew Su Hao’s approach, they would really be truly terrified.
Having excess knowledge close to a monster!
As for Su Hao, the stage which belonged to him had only just begun.
Taihu Territory, only about one-fifth of the journey had passed. At the first trial, there was a chance there was a spiritual sea storm, and ten people managed to breakthrough! It looked a lot, but Su Hao was very clear that only by being able to leave here alive can one be regarded as a true world esper. As for now…
Su Hao smirked.
Taihu Territory had an exit halfway. Only when one stayed till that moment could he exit this place. Before that, whether it’s a world esper or a domain esper, they are all just ordinary adventurers. If one wasn’t careful, death might occur.
The flame warship suddenly shook.
“Is it coming again?”
Everyone was uneasy. However, when everyone watched closely, it was the ship itself that was shaking.
“That guy is now dead.”
An incomprehensible expression appeared in the eyes of King of Fire as he watched Su Hao, “His boundary spirit had collapsed. The flame warship might not be as stable as before. Please be careful.”
Su Hao sneered for a second before looking afar, “We can’t sit still like this. I will catch the dark fish’s movement. When it appears, I will release a projection. Everyone will attack that direction. Only by killing it can we leave alive. Otherwise…”
Everyone looked at each other.
At this time, they had no other choice.
Su Hao stood at the forefront of the warship, deducing all the movements around him. Every direction, the size of each ripple; suddenly, his eyes lit up.
His right hand pointed toward a certain direction.
A red projection appeared somewhere in the air. Everyone sighed in relief with all sorts of origin techniques summoned and aimed toward the red dot. At this moment, the dark fish suddenly showed itself and caused everyone’s attack to erupt.
Taihu Territory quaked.
The dark fish wailed and fell into the lake. Before anyone could rejoice, they saw the dark fish’s tail flicking nearby, causing the warship to sway. A domain esper who failed to breakthrough fell from the ship into the lake. No one managed to save him in time, and they could hear a crack sound before the lake’s surface turned bloody.
“Xiao Ming!” A world esper screamed.
Everyone’s heart skipped a beat, yet another person died.
