Sovereign to Immortality Chapter 20
When Su Baozhang heard Yang Junshan mumbling to himself, it was obvious that he did not know what the ‘demon’ he was referring to was.
From the memories of Yang Junshan’s previous incarnation, the cultivators of this world did not know what a “demon” was. In this world, there were beasts that relied solely on instinct, such as beasts, savage beasts, and dire beasts. Even the most powerful dire beasts could compete with the strongest cultivators, but only those with the intelligence of the Elder of All Spirits could do so. Cultivators could take a decisive position in the cultivation world, and beasts could only become cultivators’ prey.
Demons did not exist in this world.
After more than ten years, the world had undergone many changes without anyone knowing. Many beasts with spiritual intelligence appeared one after another, and beasts with spiritual intelligence gradually became known to the cultivation world. However, the name “demon” truly appeared and named this huge clan.
In fact, even Yang Junshan didn’t expect that in just ten years from now, the beasts in this world had already started to sprout demonically. Originally, he had only been tracking the Treading Ground Bear according to the information he had heard in his previous incarnation, but he didn’t expect that he would accidentally discover the scene in front of him.
In his previous incarnation, there were many people who tried to trace the origin of the great change in heaven and earth. In fact, three feet of ice was not a cold one day, so ten years ago, the omen of the great change in the heaven and earth had already appeared. However, this omen was not well-known today, and if Yang Junshan did not have the experience from his previous incarnation, he would not have been able to figure it out.
After confirming that the Treading Ground Bear in front of him had the signs of the Demonification, Yang Junshan finally understood some of the unimaginable incidents that happened in his previous incarnation when the Hundred Sparrows Mountain was being hunted.
At this time, Su Baozhang lowered his voice once again and asked worriedly, “Brother Jun Shan, don’t tell me that you want to take advantage of this time to deal with this Treading Ground Bear?” “This is a top tier Vicious Beast. It is far from what a Mountain Crashing Cow can compare to. We simply cannot deal with it.”
Looking at the giant bear, which was still playing happily a few dozen zhang away, Yang Junshan said in a deep voice, “Brother Baozhang, you’re right, we can’t deal with it, but others can!”
“You mean, Zhang Yueming and the others?”
Su Baozhang immediately thought of it, his eyes lit up, “That’s right, a Treading Ground Bear is a top-grade vicious beast, and its emergence is even more likely than a mid-grade Yellow Immortal’s Spirit. That Zhang Yueming is a genius that even the Heaven-Shaking Sect has noticed, and the ones that caught his attention are at least high-grade Immortal Souls. Perhaps the few cultivators guarding the Heaven Shaking Sect specifically told him about this Treading Ground Bear.”
Su Baozhang paused for a moment, as if he had thought of something, he asked doubtfully, “But I don’t know what kind of high-rank fierce beasts like the Earth Treading Bear have left behind after the first two rounds of hunting, and it couldn’t be that the Heaven-Shaking Sect specially reserved it for him or just invited it from somewhere else, could that Zhang Yuanming really catch the Heaven-Shaking Sect’s attention?”
Naturally, Zhang Yueming wouldn’t receive such attention!
Yang Junshan thought about this but didn’t say anything. In fact, Yang Junshan had only come here based on the news that had spread out after the Hundred Sparrows Mountains’ hunting spree in his previous incarnation. He didn’t expect to encounter this Treading Ground Bear here so quickly.
Originally, according to the rumors from his previous incarnation, the Vicious Beasts arranged by the Vibrant Heaven Sect for Zhang Yueming should be a Violet Tattooed Boar. Although the Violet Tattooed Boar could not be compared to Earth Bear, it was also a Vicious Beast that could possibly give birth to a Superior Grade Immortal Soul. And this violet cloud skin also established Zhang Yueming’s position in the Heaven-Shaking Sect in the future.
However, when Zhang Yuanming and his partner were chasing the purple fur boar, a mountain tiger that was out foraging also locked onto the purple fur boar and took the initiative to attack.
Although the Mountain-Seizing Tiger was much fiercer than the Violet Tattooing Boar, the two were, after all, upper tier Vicious Beasts. In the end, although the Mountain-Seizing Tiger defeated the Violet Tattooing Boar, he suffered heavy injuries.
Just at this moment, Zhang Yueming and the others rushed over and effortlessly took advantage of the boar. Originally, they wanted to leave Mountain-Riding Tiger as well, but once his bones condensed into a high-grade immortal spirit, they would be much stronger than purple-cloud skins.
Unfortunately, even though he was attacked by the crowd, he still broke through the encirclement and pursuit of Zhang Yueming and the others, and disappeared into the Hundred Sparrows Mountain.
Zhang Yueming was unwilling to give up, so she tried to find and surround the mountain tiger, but when the field closed again, the mountain tiger never appeared again.
With Yang Junshan and Su Baozhang’s strength, they naturally couldn’t fight head-on with Zhang Yueming. Thus, Yang Junshan had already made up his mind to pick up the loot, and the purple striped pig didn’t need to think about it anymore. Right now, he didn’t want to have a direct conflict with Zhang Yueming either.
After breaking through the encirclement and encirclement of Zhang Yueming and the others, the mountain tiger was already at the end of its tether. If Yang Junshan could take this opportunity to kill it, thinking about the high-grade tiger-bone immortal, Yang Junshan, would feel very excited!
However, why was there a Treading Ground Bear here at this time?
Could it be that the rumours that had circulated around the Hundred Sparrows Mountain from his previous incarnation were incorrect? Wasn’t this the place where Zhang Yueming and the others encountered the Mountain-Riding Tiger?
Moreover, the two of them were rivals that one could not bear to face. Once one encountered a situation where one would not rest until one was dead, if there was a Stepping Ground Bear at the location of the incident in his previous incarnation, it would be impossible for the Mountain Tiger to not be discovered by the Stepping Ground Bear even if it wanted to ambush the Violet Tattooed Pig.
Not to mention, the huge body of the Treading Ground Bear in front of him was far larger than that of its kind. Yang Junshan even suspected that the giant bear was already undergoing the slow demonification process, and even Mountain-reclining Tiger would not be its match.
Unless Zhang Yueming and the others didn’t speak the truth in their previous lives, the place where they killed the Violet Tattooed Pig was not here!
If that was the case, there was no meaning for the two of them here.
Just as Yang Junshan was hesitating whether he should continue to wait here, the giant bear on the ground suddenly stopped playing the game in its hands. It lifted its face up and sniffed the air a few times before turning around and jogging towards the bottom of the mountain along the trench that was formed by the mountain torrents.
Yang Junshan hesitated for a second, then motioned Su Baozhang to follow. With the cover of the hillside vegetation, the two of them kept their distance from the bear. Fortunately, the bear was huge, so they didn’t have to worry about losing it.
Yang Junshan’s eyes never left the giant bear, but he suddenly felt Su Baozhang tug on his clothes. Yang Junshan turned around and saw Su Baozhang staring at the root of the stump in shock.
Due to the angle of the two’s concealment, they didn’t notice that there was a messy nest of tree branches and grass beneath the broken tree stump. Beside the nest was even fresh feces.
This was a wild boar’s nest!
Yang Junshan could tell the origin of this den at a glance, and the first thing he thought of was the purple striped pig. Could it be that the giant bear was coming for the purple striped pig, and wasn’t the purple striped pig ambushed by a mountain tiger?
Yang Junshan glanced at the giant bear moving along the ditch from a distance. Wild boars indeed liked to walk in the ditch, this demonic beast was obviously coming for the purple fur pig.
Pursuing or not?
Yang Junshan clenched his teeth and said in a deep voice, “Let’s go!”
Su Baozhang’s facial expression changed. In the end, he gripped the Hundred Threads Cold Light Dagger tightly in his hand and followed behind Yang Junshan.
The bear followed the torrent of water for nearly half a mile before coming to a stop. Looking around, it seemed to check the terrain before lying down on the ground. Its body was completely covered up.
If that giant bear really wanted to ambush the purple striped pig, Yang Junshan couldn’t tell where the purple striped pig came from. Therefore, the two of them had no choice but to circle around and ambush a pile of rocks dozens of feet behind the Treading Ground Bear.
Not long after the two of them hid themselves well, a strange wind suddenly blew through the forest, bringing with it the withering leaves and branches of the trees.
“Where did this strange wind come from!”
Su Baozhang tried to hit the dead leaves on his body, but was suddenly grabbed by Yang Junshan. Su Baozhang didn’t know what was going on, but he saw Yang Junshan staring at a patch of trees a few miles away.
Su Baozhang followed Yang Junshan’s line of sight, but only saw a lush forest full of foliage, and in a trance there seemed to be something walking through it. But when he took a closer look, it was the illusion of a mighty wind shaking the leaves and branches, but this forest was not far away from where the wild boar’s lair was.
Although he did not discover anything, Su Baozhang still asked in a low voice when he saw Yang Junshan acting as if he was facing a great enemy.
Yang Junshan’s almost indiscernible voice sounded in Su Baozhang’s ears, “It’s about to come. The show is about to start.”
For some reason, Su Baozhang suddenly felt that although Yang Junshan was trying his best to suppress his emotions, he could not control his excitement.
At that moment, the shrubbery at the end of the hill suddenly began to shake violently. It was as if there was a vicious beast rampaging through it, heading straight for the direction where the tree stump had been broken.
