2298 Hell’s Gate
The peak of Great Tie Wei Mountain was extremely spacious. The Martial Dao Prime Body and Heavenly Wolf crossed Asura Monastery and sped for another hour before arriving at the other end of the peak.
During this period of time, a monk of Asura Monastery followed behind them.
Although the monk of Asura Monastery hid himself well and his movement technique was extremely fast, he could not hide from the senses of the Martial Dao Prime Body.
The Martial Dao Prime Body did not take him to heart.
When they arrived and looked into the distance, they could see a pitch-black and tall mountain peak standing in the depths of the sea—it was the legendary Tie Wei Mountain!
Unlike the majesty of ordinary mountain peaks, the first time the Martial Dao Prime Body saw Tie Wei Mountain, he felt a sinister coldness.
In the direction of Tie Wei Mountain, his spirit perception warned him repeatedly!
Before he ascended Tie Wei Mountain, the Martial Dao Prime Body already felt his heart skip a beat, as though a calamity was about to descend!
Ever since the Martial Dao Prime Body cultivated, he had never felt this way.
Even when he faced Dao Lord Blood Fiend back then, the Martial Dao Prime Body had never felt such trepidation!
“It’s not too late to retreat now.”
Heavenly Wolf could also tell that the Martial Dao Prime Body was hesitant and persuaded softly, “Avici is a world of its own and is isolated from Heaven and Earth Essence Qi. If you fall into it, you won’t be able to release any divine powers or Dharmic arts.”
“Furthermore, there are countless malevolent ghosts inside. Some of them were Perfected Immortals, some were Immortal Kings and some were even Emperors!”
“These malevolent ghosts gathered together in an endless stream and devoured life essence wildly, biting flesh. Even my previous master could not withstand it, let alone you.”
“I’m not here without any backing.”
The Martial Dao Prime Body said indifferently.
Heavenly Wolf continued, “Also, even with divine weapons and Dharmic treasures, they will be reduced to scrap metal in Avici!”
“There’s fiend qi in Avici that can seal all the Dharmic powers of divine weapons and Dharmic treasures!”
The Martial Dao Prime Body said, “I don’t have any divine weapons or Dharmic treasures. My fist is the strongest divine weapon!”
The Martial Dao Prime Body said and led the way towards Tie Wei Mountain.
Although Heavenly Wolf was resistant, he could only grit his teeth and follow.
There was a strait between Tie Wei Mountain and Great Tie Wei Mountain and it was dark.
Only the ocean between the two mountains shone with a ghastly green glow. If one focused their attention, the ocean seemed to be burning with ghastly green flames that were extremely strange!
The moment the Martial Dao Prime Body left Great Tie Wei Mountain, he was already on guard and released his spirit consciousness, prepared to deal with any sudden changes.
Thankfully, there were no dangers along the way.
A ripple appeared in the ghastly green ocean beneath before calming down.
A moment later, the Martial Dao Prime Body and Heavenly Wolf finally ascended the peak of Tie Wei Mountain!
The moment he stepped foot on the top of Tie Wei Mountain, the Martial Dao Prime Body suddenly sensed a strong summoning ahead, as though it was urging him to advance!
“Y-You can sense it too, right?”
When Heavenly Wolf stepped foot on Tie Wei Mountain, he could no longer control himself and began to tremble. “T-This is the fiend power of Avici!”
“If we retreat now, there’s still hope for us to survive. If we take another step forward, we might be doomed!”
The Martial Dao Prime Body glanced sideways at Yan Beichen on the back of Heavenly Wolf. After a moment of silence, he said slowly, “Continue!”
With that said, he led the way.
Heavenly Wolf hid behind the Martial Dao Prime Body and followed carefully as he said, “Avici is vast and boundless. Even if we jump down, it’ll be akin to searching for a needle in a haystack to find my old master’s corpse.”
“Back then, I was a Weapon Spirit. I couldn’t move around and did not know much about Avici!”
There was already a hint of sorrow in Heavenly Wolf’s voice.
Fear was his only memory towards Avici!
Right then, the Martial Dao Prime Body suddenly stopped and Heavenly Wolf almost bumped into him.
Under the cold Mara Mask of the Martial Dao Prime Body, he had a grim expression and looked at a gigantic abyss not far ahead with heavy breathing.
There was such a bottomless abyss in the center of Tie Wei Mountain!
Looking into the abyss from above, one could only see pitch-black. Even with the eyesight of the Martial Dao Prime Body, he could not see what was beneath.
The pitch-black abyss was like the mouth of an ancient behemoth, waiting for its prey to arrive.
The summoning feeling earlier on came from this abyss!
Any living being that stepped foot on Tie Wei Mountain would have difficulty defending against that summoning feeling!
“T-This is the entrance to Avici, Hell’s Gate!”
Heavenly Wolf shuddered.
Suddenly, the Martial Dao Prime Body asked, “Great Tie Wei Mountain and Tie Wei Mountain are made of the same material, right?”
Heavenly Wolf replied instinctively, not knowing why the Martial Dao Prime Body asked that.
The Martial Dao Prime Body said coldly, “Back when Bo Xun was killed, more than 20 Emperor experts fought here but none of them could shake Tie Wei Mountain.”
“However, the Infinite Great Emperor managed to open up such a gigantic abyss on Tie Wei Mountain!”
It was clear how terrifying the Infinite Great Emperor was!
Right then, a tremendous suction force came from the entrance of the abyss, as though the mouth of a gigantic behemoth was about to close!
The Martial Dao Prime Body and Heavenly Wolf stood at the edge of the abyss and could not defend against that power at all. The three of them fell into the abyss right away!
“Ow! Ow! Ow!”
Heavenly Wolf let out a tragic cry before his voice was devoured by the darkness.
The figures of the two men and one wolf vanished as well.
Not far away, the monk of Asura Monastery shuddered in fear and turned to flee.
“This man truly doesn’t know what’s good for him. To think that he would dare ascend Tie Wei Mountain!”
The monk of Asura Monastery muttered and flew towards the monastery without turning back.
The moment the Martial Dao Prime Body descended, he reacted right away and extended his palm to support Heavenly Wolf and Yan Beichen!
The two men and one wolf were gathered together and were not dispersed.
Their speed of descent was too fast and the Martial Dao Prime Body released nine Fate Rings without hesitation. Purple halos appeared behind him and runes shone.
However, in the blink of an eye, the nine Fate Rings were covered by a faint black fog.
Within a few breaths, the nine Fate Rings dissipated!
“That’s the Avici fiend qi!”
When Heavenly Wolf noticed that, he sent a voice transmission with his spirit consciousness, “We haven’t truly entered Avici yet. The Avici fiend qi here is very thin.”
Even so, the nine Fate Rings could no longer defend against it!
The two of them and the wolf continued descending as the wind howled in their ears.
In this abyss, visibility was extremely low. Even with the eyesight of the Martial Dao Prime Body, he could not see far and could only see around ten feet around him.
The range of his spirit consciousness was similar.
As the Martial Dao Prime Body controlled his body, he calculated the distance they fell.
The two of them and the wolf did not stop falling. The pitch-black abyss below seemed to be bottomless and the Martial Dao Prime Body did not know what was waiting for them below.
