By the altar, an army of one hundred thousand was stationed there. They worked directly under the Asmodian Lord. Anyone that dared to come close, including province leaders, would be attacked.
Lu Li and Ye Cha sneaked their way to the mountain range. From the distance, they could see dark clouds around. They felt a chill air, shivering as if they had fallen into an ice cellar.
This was not just average cold air. It was something sinister and gloomy. The coldness was not the scariest thing. They heard strange howls coming from afar.
The howling was like that of an elephant, but also resembled a child’s cries at night. The sound was not low, but it was constant. It would make people shiver, extremely unpleasant to the ears.
“Ye Cha, take a look around out here. Alert me if you notice anything.”
Lu Li took a few looks and decided to take actions. Ye Cha nodded and sneaked away. Lu Li used psychic power to communicate with the 10 patriarchs and five Earth Immortal Realm soul slaves in the Wicked Bead, reminding them to get ready to take actions at any moment.
Lu Li yelled. He flew up to the sky and released his Bead of Life to quickly construct the Feather Wind castle.
He did not dash forward at once. He generated Feather Wind first, which could be done rather fast now. In the time for a dozen breaths, the Feather Wind castle was filled with Feather Wind.
“Whoosh, whoosh, whoosh~”
In the mountain range, the warriors were alarmed. A large group of black-armored warriors came out. Many powerful ones checked Lu Li with psychic power.
“Lu Li, the human emperor Lu Li!”
“How did he get in here? How can he be at the altar?”
“Inform the Asmodian Lord, now!”
They were screaming in fear. Some of them knew Lu Li. When the information was learned by others, the Asmodians were thrown into chaos. They were frightened and did not know how to act.
“Kill that bastard!”
Lu Li directed the Feather Wind castle toward the altar. Dozens of dragons of wind whooshed by and affected nearly ten thousand warriors ahead of them. Those warriors fell down like a group of moths caught on fire.
Average Asmodians were not that capable. Even the elite squad of the Asmodian armies was made up of a group of Noble Lord Realm warriors. There was no chance that they could stand the Feather Wind.
Those fell to the ground were still alive. They were merely knocked unconscious. Lu Li did not want to take their lives. He flew the Feather Wind castle to the center of the altar. Dark clouds were gathered there. It was where the strange howling of the Dragon Demon came from.
He was going to kill the Dragon Demon!
That was his utmost priority. He could let all the other Asmodian warriors stay alive. His goal was clear and the Asmodians had noticed that.
“He is going to kill our holy beast. Stop him!”
“The holy beast is treasured by the Asmodian Lord. We must protect the beast at the cost of our lives. Charge. The Asmodian Lord will be back soon. Let us stall Lu Li for a moment.”
Countless powerful Asmodians shouted. If Lu Li could really kill the Dragon Demon, then everything the Asmodian Lord had worked for over this period of time would be flushed down the drain. Everyone here would be executed by the Asmodian Lord when he came back. Those warriors believed that they had to face death, either way, so they might just as well risk their lives now and try to protect the holy beast.
Teams after teams of Human Sovereign Realm and Earth Immortal Realm Asmodians rushed toward Lu Li, resorting to their own means of attack. The space was filled with dark glows. Many Asmodians were trying to force their way into the Feather Wind castle by sneaking around in the space.
Even though Lu Li’s Feather Wind castle did not transform, it was improved. The Feather Wind castle was almost an entity now. The Asmodians were able to crack down the walls, but Lu Li repaired them soon.
As for the ones that did make their way in, they suffered from soul attacks. Like burnt bugs, they dropped to the ground. It was quite an intimidating scene…
“Those who stand in my way shall die!”
Lu Li shouted. The Human Sovereign Realm warriors that fell to the ground came back up soon. They were like a mob of flies, robbing Lu Li of any peaceful time. They were attempting to bring the Feather Wind castle to ruins.
Lu Li was getting angrier. The Wicked Bead glowed as he sent out the 10 patriarchs and five Earth Immortal Realm soul slaves. Lu Li moved the Feather Wind away from them so that they would not be affected.
Pointing at the powerful Asmodians, Lu Li said. He adjusted the castle, so as not to be in the way. Even though he had to exert greater effort, the efficiency was elevated.
“Boom, boom, boom~”
The 15 Earth Immortal Realm warriors blasted away. Many powerful Asmodians were enveloped by dragons of wind, so they were unprepared. Soon, many died.
Around them, many powerful Asmodians were either killed or injured. Lu Li could not afford to lose more time. If the Asmodian Lord came back, things would become tricky.
He flew the Wicked Bead to the center of the altar. The bellow was growing louder and louder. Lu Li tried to look with psychic power only to find that the dark cloud had cut it off. There must be some formation inside the dark cloud that could render psychic powers ineffective.
“Blast the altar open!”
Lu Li shouted. The 15 Earth Immortal Realm warriors did so forcefully. They attacked wildly at the altar. There were a large number of formation stones on the ground. After a while, the formation was destroyed. The dark cloud dispersed. Finally, Lu Li and the others could check the Dragon Demon with psychic power.
They gasped. Inside the altar settled a mountain-like beast. That beast had a length of thousands of feet. It crawled in the altar. Compared to the beast, humans were like mosquitos. Its tremendous size was overwhelming.
The beast was covered in blood-red scales and furs. It had a pair of wings, the head of a lion and one single red horn on its head. Its eyes were golden in color, but it gave out nothing but coldness and cruelty.
The appearance of the beast was not exactly ugly or ferocious, contrary to what Lu Li and the others had pictured. That being said, the huge beast had an intimidating air. Only its breath and energy alone were suffocating.
This beast was nothing like those Xuan Beasts at the Great Land with regard to its energy. Xuan Beasts from the Great Land would make people’s hearts pound faster. But this one, the beast seemed sinister. It was as if the beast was from the underworld and it had the power to harvest people’s souls and snatch people’s lives.
“The Asmodian Lord is heartless!”
Underneath the beast’s body were broken limbs and remains. The limbs were small and so were the bones. They must be from young children. The two hundred thousand young boys and girls delivered from around the Eastern Land of Oceans must have been eaten by the Dragon Demon…
The Dragon Demon’s size was already intimidating when it had eaten two hundred thousand children. If it was fed with four hundred and ninety thousand children, how much larger would the Dragon Demon be? What was more, Lu Li already felt that he was not a match for the Dragon Demon. When it grew up and became mature, it was really possible that the Dragon Demon could be as powerful as a real immortal.
“Kill that bastard!”
Lu Li yelled. He knew that it would be a daunting task to kill the Dragon Demon. That being said, this was his only chance.
He shouted, “We must finish the Dragon Demon in an hour. If we fail, we will be faced with tremendous trouble.”
