"What do you need me for sect leader Tang?" Ye Mo asked in confusion.
Tang Mengrao said dejectedly, "I heard of Qiandie's whereabouts, I was going to find her. I think I should tell you about it."
Ye Mo frowned. "Where is she?"
Ao Qiandie wanted to ambush him and annihilate Mo Yue. If he found her he wouldn't let her off.
"She's probably in 5-star sect Dual Heart Valleym" Tang Mengrao said dejectedly. Ao Qiandie had been in her sect for twenty or so years. There were still some feelings she had for her. She wanted to know if she was possessed before or after she came into her sect.
"How do you know?" Ye Mo asked in confusion, but Tang Mengrao just sighed and didn't answer.
Ye Mo knew this was something private so he didn't ask further. "Things here are done, I'll go with sect leader Tang to Dual Heart Valley."
Tang Mengrao nodded.
"By the way, sect leader Tang you know this thing?" Ye Mo pointed at the grey body.
Tang Mengrao immediately replied, "That's right, I know it. It's the most terrifying bug in the cultivation realm called Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug. On the rare spirit bug ranking some people rank it as first but some rank another spirit bug as first. There's this saying 'Not a spirit bug not an immortal, not number one Shadowless Worm. Not a spirit bug but an immortal, Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug won't be number two.'"
Ye Mo was dazed, he had heard of the first part. It was talking about his Shadowless? Did Tang Mengrao know of Shadowless' origin? She saw Shadowless attack once. Did she know he had it? Then he looked at her expression but she didn't seem to know he had Shadowless. Ye Mo thought and felt it was natural, Shadowless attacked quickly each time. Before she could lock on with her spirit sense Shadowless was taken back.
Ye Mo asked again, "Sect leader Tang what does the saying mean?"
Tang Mengrao explained, "There's this most powerful thing in the cultivation realm. It's like a bug but not a bug. It's called Shadowless Devouring Worm. The place it came from is very mysterious, no one knows. It's not even the immortal realm. But the shadowless worm can't be born in the cultivation realm. However, it can dominate the cultivation realm. It's said that Shadowless Worms appear in the mortal realms that don't support cultivation. It is born in pairs of eggs. Only very powerful beings can put Shadowless Worm eggs into the mortal realm to hatch.
"This appeared in the cultivation realm and was very powerful. Cultivation realm cultivators thought this was a new breed of spirit bug but then they found that even the most powerful spirit bug had a huge difference to Shadowless Devouring Worm so they didn't list Shadowless on there. "
Ye Mo nodded, Ye Mo even suspected that Chu Jiuyu brought Shadowless to Earth, but it was unverifiable.
Tang Mengrao pointed at the dead bug body. "This bug is very scary. It's the number one powerful bug of the cultivation realm. Even immature Shadowless Worms fear this thing. It's said this bug came from the immortal realm. Even in the immortal realm, high level Nine Headed Void Devouring Bugs are very scary.
But soon, people found that the Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug was countless times stronger than spirit bugs ranked after it. They weren't even comparable. Meanwhile, Shadowless took a long time to mature and was far from a match for Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug before maturing. Thus came the second part of the saying. The Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug wasn't treated as a spirit bug either.
Tang Mengrao took out a jade slip and said, "I knew from this jade slip. Strictly speaking, Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug isn't a spirit bug. It formed with a human soul attached to it."
Hearing this, he believed it. he had long been suspecting this spirit mist and space devouring things were created by cultivators.
Reading the jade slip, Ye Mo noticed it introduced things like the Thing but Thing was more focused on spirit herb and ores while this jade slip was focused on spirit bugs and spirit beast.
Soon, Ye Mo found Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug.
Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug also called void devouring yan, is a bug fed with cultivator soul. It can devour space and it's saliva can corrode everything.
The cultivator breeding this bug need to separate his soul into ten or more pieces depending on the strength of his soul. One piece would be the main body and the other would be the cloned soul bodies. Each cloned soul would control a Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug to grow up. When they all mature, the main body would bring the nine Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug together.
He would place the 9 soul clones together and they would merge automatically becoming a true Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug. If there were more than 9 clones, then the extra ones would be devoured.
When the Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug fused together nine souls, it would have nine heads and become invincible in the cultivation realm.
Even the lowest grade Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug can devour space and spit saliva that no cultivator can block. Even low level immortals would have to run much less truth realisation state peak stage cultivators. If Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug reached higher levels, even golden immortals or high would be dead.
The first time to breeding Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug is very hard because many soul clones may be annihilated before maturing. If too many clones are annihilated the Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug would be greatly weakened so they are usually bred at a place with no people or place with no powerful beings.
Ye Mo took a cold breath in, this Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug was too scary. When it first matured, even a low level immortal crystal was no match for it. But he now finally understood why it was being bred in the cultivation realm.
It needed to devour the essence blood of cultivators and if people dared to do this in the immortal realm, the soul clone would long be annihilated.
"So powerful!" Ye Mo exclaimed. He had decided to annihilate the body in All Herb Mountain Range no matter what. Just one was already that powerful, if that bred cultivator controlled all nine how was he supposed to fight?
Wait, why didn't Chu Xiaoyi annihilate the one in all the mountain ranges? He sealed it instead. If it was something he could annihilate how would Chu Xiaoyi not be able to?
Thinking about this, Ye Mo was shook. He finally realized what Chu Xiaoyi sealed. It wasn't a soul clone but the breeder of the Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug.
Tang Mengrao sighed, "The Nine Headed Void Devouring Bug is indeed terrifying."
Ye Mo didn't explain to her. Luckily he disintegrated that black thing or it might start growing in another place.
"Let's go to Dual Heart Valley." Ye Mo had decided to annihilate Ao Qiandie first. He probably wasn't strong enough to take on the thing in All Herb Mountain Range.
Seeing Ye Mo and Tang Mengrao leave, those low level cultivators on the side rushed into the market.
