Again, and again, Little White came back out. But every time, Little White would be smashed down. Little White and Lu Li had a close bond. They were never just a master and his pet, but more like families.
Since Little White was born, it had been following Lu Li around. Lu Li was Little White’s only family. To Little White, he was the whole world. It would risk its own life to protect Lu Li when he was in danger.
Lu Li could see that Little White’s fur had been reddened by blood and it had one broken leg. Even so, Little White was still struggling to fly back up again and again. Lu Li felt his heart ache when he saw the persistence in Little White’s eyes.
On the other hand…
Lu Li could do nothing at the moment. It was immensely difficult for him to just move his body. There were eight Earth Immortal Realm patriarchs in the Wicked Bead, but Lu Li could not let them out.
He had divine energy in his Bead of Life, which he could not use at all. The only thing he might be able to resort to would be the Rising Dragon Skill. That being said, what could that do when a group of Earth Immortal Realm warriors was unable to hurt the Dragon Demon even with their strongest powers?
“Lu Li, I will admit that you are a human talent that can be rarely seen in ten thousand years. That being said… you will not live to the end of today! If you’re lucky to be reborn, then remember to not be so full of yourself. You should have been more careful.”
“Today, by coming here, you have stepped toward your own doom. Nobody can change that. Not even a hundred Semi-God Realm warriors can save you.”
“Lu Li, there are some more Earth Immortal Realm warriors in your Wicked Bead, aren’t there? How about you let them out and let’s find out which one of them can save you? What else can you do? Let me know!”
Lu Li heard many of the Asmodian Lord’s words. A moment ago, Lu Li was thinking that the Asmodian Lord was just talking wildly. Now, the Asmodian Lord’s words seemed so sarcastic.
Lu Li was imprudent. He had thought that he would definitely defeat the Asmodian Lord with his improved Feather Wind castle. He never realized that everything he did, every means he had, seemed ridiculous to the Asmodian Lord.
He had the chance to escape earlier. If he had gone into the Wicked Bead at the beginning, he could have run away. He could find a place to hide to study the line diagram further, which might give him more powers. However, as of now, he had no more such chances.
“Else? What else can I possibly do?”
Lu Li sneered at himself. The desire for survival made him think back, to go through everything that he knew and every move he had.
Bloodline Skill? Burning Blood? Dragon Roar? Blood Claw? Rising Dragon Skill? None of those had any use. Profound Meanings of speed, space shattering, Soul Shattering, Feather Wind castle?
Lu Li went through everything he could think of. He had many ways that might get the Dragon Demon killed but none of that mattered when he could not move.
“Wait a minute—”
All of a sudden, Lu Li thought of something. He remembered an item, a piece of treasure that he had forgotten, something from the Divinity.
Blood of the Slayer!
That was what he found in the inner hall of the Wicked Bead which was from the Divinity. The Blood of the Slayer was from a supreme warrior. Within the blood contained horrifying energy. Even opening the bottle for a while almost turned Lu Li into a killing lunatic for he could not stand the evil spirit, let alone consuming the blood.
Consuming the Blood of the Slayer?
That was the one last option, the last chance for him to turn the situation around. If he did not try this, he would lose his life, the Wicked Bead would be forced open, Jiang Qiling and Bai Qiuxue would die and so would the eight patriarchs and Little White.
On the other hand…
Could he possibly consume the blood? Could his mortal body stand such powers? What if his body exploded as soon as the blood entered his body?
From the ground came a noise that stopped Lu Li’s thinking. He checked with psychic power, flying into a violent rage. Once again, Little White was smashed into the ground by the Dragon Demon. Little White seemed to be unable to get back up. Its bones were broken and so were its four limbs. Little White was breathing so shallowly. It might die at any moment.
“Let’s do it!”
Lu Li made up his mind. Either way, he was going to die anyway. He might as well made the final attempt of defeating the Dragon Demon. The Wicked Bead shimmered. Patriarch Lei and the others flew out. Exerting his full strength, he shouted, “Spread out and run. This is an order. Violators will be banished from the Demon-slaying Hall!”
Patriarch Lei and the others did not know what had happened. When they were sent out, they automatically wanted to attack. But they were all stunned by the gigantic, mountain-sized Dragon Demon.
“Banished from the Demon-slaying Hall?”
Every one of them came back to their senses after hearing Lu Li’s words. They stopped hesitating and run to different sides. Lu Li was serious. They could not disobey him.
“What makes you think you can run away now?”
The Asmodian Lord sneered. The mysterious runes glowed in his eyes. The Asmodian Lord was about to let the Dragon Demon control all the patriarchs when he threw a random glance to Lu Li. The Asmodian Lord was shocked and frightened.
A jade bottle came out from Lu Li’s Interspatial Ring. Lu Li reached out his hand, grabbed the jade bottle and used his thumb to uncork the bottle. He poured out a drop of blood.
The moment the blood came out of the jade bottle, a surge of horrifying energy spread out and extended to an area with a radius of three miles. The Asmodian Lord could smell a strong smell of blood. His eyes reddened and he was filled with the urge to kill. In that instant, he sensed he had changed. He wanted to tear apart all living things.
He was not alone. Patriarch Lei and the others had stopped flying away. They stared at the blood, absent-minded, the dark red blood with golden runes. Everyone’s eyes were turning red. They could not wait to murder people and their blood was boiling.
The Dragon Demon raised its head and roared, restless. It spread its wings. Surprisingly, the Dragon Demon stepped backward for two miles. The Dragon Demon looked at the blood of the Slayer with fear. It seemed to be saying that it could not withstand the evil spirit in the blood.
Little White, who had been smashed into the ground, opened its eyes. It stared at the drop of blood. Little White’s eyes glowed, longingly. It appeared that Little White wanted to consume the drop of blood.
“Let me consume it~”
Lu Li was breathing heavily. His blood boiled and his face became ferocious. His eyes were red as blood. He squeezed a beast roar from his throat, “Blood of the Slayer, please do not disappoint me.”
Lu Li reached out a hand. The drop of blood flew directly into his mouth. He closed his eyes, focusing entirely on his body.
He did not know how to consume the blood of the Slayer. Therefore, he had resorted to the simplest way, to swallow it and to let the blood fuse with his own blood.
The drop of blood went into his body. Lu Li felt he had eaten a ball of fire and his body was burning. Under the impact of the pain, he let out roars of misery.
The Dragon Demon had stepped back but Lu Li was still affected by the red air. He was still trapped. He was like a demon from hell that had been chained up, raising his heads, yelling, emitting evil energy. It was as if a demon was going to burst out from the chains and rip apart every living being.
As the blood of the Slayer was consumed by Lu Li, the Asmodian Lord and the other patriarchs gradually came back to their senses. The red glow in their eyes dimmed down and their desire to kill died out slowly.
But the Asmodian Lord believed he had seen a ghost at the moment. Runes were shining brightly in his eyes as he yelled to the Dragon Demon, “Dragon Demon, go and kill Lu Li, now, right away!”
