Chapter 1189: Deducing the Martial Dao


“Now that this is over, the North Region should be peaceful for a period of time.”


The old immortal crane lamented.


After the battle between Su Zimo and Dao Lord Xuan Yu, Stellar Luna Sect, Blaze Columbus Valley and some other upper sects and aristocratic families had already expressed that they would no longer hold grudges.


Furthermore, now that six Conjoint Body Mighty Figures were dead, it won’t take long before news of it spread through the entire North Region. As such, the upper sects and aristocratic families should settle down.


“Over the years, the North Region has been in turmoil. The feudal va.s.sals have risen and the flames of war have spread.”


Su Zimo said, “After the Witch Gu calamity and the destruction of the three dynasties, the North Region is devastated. I hope that there will be a period of peace and rest.”


“Zimo, what are your plans from now on?”


Ji Yaoxue asked.


“That’s right. Xuan Yu is dead and the blood feud of the 13 cities of Yan Country has been avenged. That’s a weight on the shoulder lifted. Brother, where are you going from now on?” Xiaoning echoed.


The old immortal crane smiled. “Why don’t you follow me back to Ethereal Peak? A hundred years ago, you were forced to leave because you were afraid of implicating the sect. Now, you can return.”


“Sure!”


Nian Qi nodded hurriedly.


Su Zimo remained silent.


“Why don’t you follow us to the demon region?”


Monkey grinned. “When we came out this time round, the spirit tiger used the Demon Sealing Diagram and brought almost everyone from Howling Moon Mountain that can fight! If we head to the North Region’s Wild Lion Ridge, we can dominate the place and become Territorial Lords still!”


“Territorial Lords?”


Shaking its head, the spirit tiger pouted and said in an arrogant manner, “Since we’re all here, we’ve got to become Overlords no matter what!”


“That’s right!”


This time round, monkey did not retort the spirit tiger.


Ji Yaoxue smiled without saying anything.


Be it Wild Lion Ridge or Ethereal Peak, they were both in the North Region.


As long as he was in the North Region, there would definitely be opportunities for them to meet.


Su Zimo did not reply the entire time. He merely looked in a direction and fell into deep thought.


After a long time, he smiled apologetically. “I have to go somewhere else and leave for a period of time.”


“Ah! Where? Is it dangerous?”


Xiaoning asked hurriedly with a worried expression.


“It’s fine,”


Su Zimo smiled. “There’s no one else there. It’s very safe.”


After pausing for a moment, he took a deep breath and said slowly with a resolute gaze, “There’s something that needs to be done!”


“What?”


Everyone asked instinctively.


“Deduce the Martial Dao!”


Su Zimo said word by word.


Everyone was shocked.


They were clear about Su Zimo’s Dao heart.


The entire cultivation world knew that Desolate Martial wanted to establish a Dao and impart martial arts to all living beings!


However, everyone was even clearer about how tough that path was!


He was creating a path that no one had ever walked before!


He was going to deduce his own Dao and Dharmic arts!


“That’s way too difficult,”


In a rare moment of speech, Night Spirit said while shaking his head gently.


Throughout history, countless wise sages and experts tried this Dao and expended their lifespans but to no avail!


Moreover, Su Zimo was only at the Void Reversion realm.


“That’s right.”


Su Zimo smiled gently. “That’s why I don’t know when I’ll be able to return.”


“Where are you going, young master?”


Nian Qi asked.


“The Dao Inheritance Ground!”


Su Zimo said in a deep voice, “I want to enter the Dao Inheritance Ground again. There are many ancient inheritances there that I haven’t comprehended yet. After obtaining those inheritances, I’ll fuse them with my life, what I’ve seen, heard, learned and understood. I’ll do my best to deduce the Martial Dao!”


This was the result of Su Zimo’s careful consideration.


His current cultivation was already at the perfected Void Reversion realm.


As for the Dao Inheritance Ground, it was a separate dimension with many seals. If he was at the Dharma Characteristic realm, he would not be able to enter it.


This was his final chance!


This time round, no one tried to persuade or stop him.


That was Su Zimo’s Dao heart.


He had to do it!


“It wasn’t easy for us brothers to get together. Now, we’re going to separate again.”


The spirit tiger was a little frustrated.


“It’s not like he’s going to some dangerous place. We’ll meet again sooner or later,”


Monkey was rather carefree about it. “Let’s take a walk around Wild Lion Ridge then. If we’re in a good mood, we’ll take over it and stay for a period of time. Once you’re out, look for us at the Wild Lion Ridge. Things will definitely move smoothly at the mention of our names!”


“Sure,”


Su Zimo laughed and turned to ask, “What are your plans, Xiaoning?”


“I’ll stay in the North Region for a period of time first and see if the Witch Gu calamity will resurface,”


Xiaoning held Ji Yaoxue’s arm. “I can accompany Sister Yaoxue as well. If the North Region is fine, I’ll head back to Elixir Yang Sect to take a look.”


“Yes, it’s been more than a hundred years since you’ve been back as well. It’s time for you to head back,”


Su Zimo nodded.


The Great Zhou Dynasty had fused with three dynasties and there were many political matters to attend to. Naturally, Ji Yaoxue chose to stay in the Great Zhou Dynasty.


Nian Qi returned to Ethereal Peak.


Everyone knew their paths and in the blink of an eye, it was time to part.


“Young Master,”


Right then, a timid voice sounded.


Everyone turned towards the sound.


In the crowd, a boy looked down at Su Zimo. His cheeks were flushed red as though he was nervous. Pinching the corner of his s.h.i.+rt, he asked softly, “W-Where am I going?”


“Little Tao Yao, of course you’re coming with us!”


Qing Qing pinched Tao Yao’s tender cheeks and said with a smile, “You’re a demon. If you follow us, we’ll bring you to live a good life!”


Tao Yao’s face flushed even redder but he said nothing.


Su Zimo smiled and asked, “Where do you want to go?”


“C-Can I follow you to that Dao Inheritance Ground, young master?” Tao Yao asked expectantly, blinking his sparkling eyes.


“No.”


Su Zimo shook his head.


It was not because he was heartless; the Dao Inheritance Ground was restricted by the wills of Mighty Figures.


Tao Yao’s blood qi and Dharmic powers would be restricted upon entering and that would not be beneficial to this child.


Furthermore, the place he was headed to was a forbidden ground in the Dao Inheritance Ground that no one else could enter!


“Oh,”


Tao Yao was slightly disappointed.


Su Zimo said, “Why don’t you follow Qing Qing and the others to Wild Lion Ridge?”


Tao Yao tilted his head slightly, seemingly in deep thought.


After a moment, he asked, “If I leave, who will protect the grandpas, grandmas, uncles and aunties of Ping Yang Town?”


Upon hearing that question, Su Zimo’s gaze at Tao Yao turned even gentler.


“n.o.body,”


He shook his head.


“I’ll stay here then! I’ll stay in Ping Yang Town!”


Tao Yao said seriously.


Qing Qing said, “But, how lonely will you be as the only demon?”


“I won’t,”


Tao Yao revealed an innocent smile. “The grandpas and grandmas in the town are very nice to me. They’re not afraid of me and even told me many things about young master in the past!”


The elders of Ping Yang Town were extremely grateful towards the Su family and the second young master of the Su family.


When Su Hong was king, he protected Ping Yang Town from the flames of war.


Later on, when the allied army of the three dynasties invaded, Second Young Master Su appeared and buried the allied army of the three dynasties in Cang Lang Mountain Range. In the town, he killed many Nascent Souls that were chasing after him!


Many people witnessed that scene.


Some of the children back then were more than a hundred years old by now – they were now the elderly of Ping Yang Town.


In fact, they were even vaguely aware that the reason why Ping Yang Town was able to survive in this chaotic world was because of Second Young Master Su.


The stories of the Su family and the legend of Second Young Master Su ascending to immortality were pa.s.sed down from their ancestors.


“Alright,”


Su Zimo caressed Tao Yao’s forehead and said gently, “Stay in Ping Yang Town and wait for my return.”


“Ugh!”


Tao Yao’s eyes lit up and he nodded vigorously.
