Nine Evolutions of the True Spirit Chapter 56 – One More

In fact, Lu Ping and Qiao Xipeng had already noticed the sea snake monster’s escape right at the start of their battle. However, they didn’t stop it from escaping nor were they afraid of it coming back for them.

After all, the sea snake monster’s arcane energy was depleted from the previous battles and its injuries were severe. The act of self-destructing its own Condensed Blood Beads had heavily drained its life force.

Furthermore, its wounds would leave a trail of blood when escaping. This made it easy to track its position. Hence, Lu Ping and Qiao Xipeng both planned to go after the sea snake monster after they killed the other.

Lu Ping followed the trail of blood in the water and flew south-west.

He flew more than a hundred miles before slowly catching up to the sea snake monster.

Lu Ping didn’t know why the sea snake monster was traveling so far despite knowing of its imminent death. However, Lu Ping had watched the entire battle between Qiao Xipeng and the sea snake monster. He knew that the sea snake was intelligent. Otherwise, it wouldn’t have severely injured Qiao Xipeng despite its perilous situation.

Unfortunately for the sea snake monster, Lu Ping was there to claim the fruit of victory from its jaws.

Hence, as Lu Ping drew closer to the sea snake monster, he also grew more cautious. Furthermore, after traveling for so long, he had now reached the seas under Xuan Ling Sect’s jurisdiction.

Lu Ping was now about forty yards deep underwater and less than ten yards away from the seabed. He was forced to constantly cast his arcane energy to alleviate the immense water pressure. As a result, his arcane energy was almost depleted.

At this time, he could already see the carcass of the sea snake monster, coiling on the seabed just ahead. It was so close yet so far.

Behind the carcass was a burrow with an almost one-foot radius. By the looks of it, that should be its lair. Lu Ping couldn’t help but wonder. What was in the lair? What was so precious to the sea snake monster that it couldn’t let go even before its death? What was so important to protect that it insisted on returning?

The sea snake monster was clearly the companion to the other sea snake monster he killed the last time. So, could that something possibly be their eggs?

When that possibility crossed his mind, Lu Ping was pumped with energy. However, he was still seven yards away from reaching the seabed. It was just a short distance, but the immense water pressure stopped him from diving any deeper. Lu Ping couldn’t help feeling annoyed.

It seemed like his best bet was to return after successfully entering the Blood Condensation Realm, or acquiring equipment specially for diving. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be entering the lair anytime soon.

Fortunately, the lair was deep below the sea and the waters were heavily obstructing the divine sense’s range and perceptibility. This made it almost impossible for ordinary cultivators to discover the lair’s position from the water surface. Not unless a cultivator was specifi
