Chapter 433: Run, Mate!
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Everyone had expected the two Heavenly Network people to encircle Nogiwa Takenobu and end his life on the spot. But it was totally beyond their imagination that Lu Shu seemed to have returned solely for the shurikens.
Wait a moment, shurikens WERE the true reason for his return!
Many Class B experts had guessed it that the divine water was the sacred item left by Earl due to the full exposure on its ability to consume magical weapons. In the past, Earl’s lethality was precisely because of his resistance to short-range weapon attacks.
Although it might not work against magical attacks or weapon spirits such as that from the black dragon spear, the divine water was definitely the tomb for things like shurikens.
Dumbstruck, an expert asked in disbelief, “Did he strengthen his water via such lame moves?!”
“Highly likely! Those shurikens are surely destroyed. Poor Nogiwa Takenobu!”
“Eh, how many people has he tricked then?!”
“Must watch out for him next time…”
As for the Deities, the bunch had extremely mixing feelings upon witnessing the Heavenly Network expert’s surprise moves. “Coral, is that the person you like?”
Coral gazed cheerfully at Lu Shu’s receding figure beyond the main gate. “Yes, him!”
After a long silence, the Class B leader of the Deities commented calmly, “Coral, now I understand why you say your affluence is an advantage. You know him well…”
At that very instant, Li Yixiao avoided Nogiwa Takenobu’s blade and took advantage of his momentary daze. In a split second, Nogiwa was thrown hard into the stone wall, and large volumes of blood instantly swelled up in his mouth!
They were both temporarily distracted by Lu Shu, but Li Yixiao was less sensitive and very talented at such tricks. Thus, he knew it was his opportunity when all eyes were drawn to Lu Shu!
Then, in people’s full witness, the blood that Nogiwa Takenobu vomited out was immediately absorbed by the black stones on the floor. Then, a red flash flickered along the symbols in the area.
The experts knitted their brows. “Something’s wrong with this underground palace. It sucks human blood.”
At the moment, Nogiwa Takenobu had no time to rest, as Li Yixiao had no intention to stop yet!
But he was really not suited for any more combat. Had he become even more weakened, he would soon be killed, be it by Li Yixiao or other Class B’s.
It was not only due to the competition for the relic, but also his appealing magic katana. Magical weapons with embedded spirits were widely sought after, as they could provide an additional edge beside the power of the weapon itself!
It was a fight or flight situation!
Suddenly, blood gushed out of Nogiwa Takenobu’s eyes. Li Yixiao put his guard up at once. He had seem similar scenes in the Beimang remains, when seven people sacrificed their lives to up the combat effectiveness of one of them.
Nie Ting had also mentioned it after his visit to the Collection of Gods. It was said that this method could result in a temporary upgrade of one’s capabilities via the destruction of other CoG members’ foundation. Similarly, the last-ditch technique by Class D’s of the Heavenly Network would deprive the user of any chances of advancement.
Actually, Class C’s like Hao Zhichao knew the technique too. But they would never apply it unless left with no other means of survival.
Nogiwa Takenobu was in excruciating agony as the fact set in that he would never ever ascend to Class A. However, with pros from various organizations approaching him in silence, he would never make it out alive if he did not do so now!
But he could not die in vain either. The technique would up his abilities to peak Class B in a short time, more than enough to overpower Li Yixiao.
At that instant, Nogiwa Takenobu calculated his chances at killing Li Yixiao.
In a rough estimate, he had more than enough time to slake his hatred!
All of a sudden, purple light radiated brightly from his katana, and the purple snake entangling with the black dragon suddenly surged in power, breaking free of the dragon’s locking teeth, throwing itself towards Li Yixiao!
Meanwhile, Nogiwa Takenobu struck towards Li Yixiao like a specter. But just when he intended to slash Li Yixiao alive, the man actually ran away!
Freak! Such a lame move!
In fact, it was the wisest choice at the moment and everybody knew it. They were aware that Nogiwa Takenobu’s sudden improvement in power was temporary. But what they did not expect was the person’s decisiveness!
One ran away when he could not win, and the other did the same after robbing another person’s stuff. What was wrong with the Heavenly Network nowadays?! What happened to your courage as publicized by your Heavenly King Nie Ting?!
In the meantime, outside the palace, Lu Shu frowned at the view in front of him. It was an empty space lined by stone walls perforated with dense holes, like tens of beehive coals.
Every hole was as tall as a person, as though each leading to a different place. If that was the case, they could be directed to hundreds of locations from there.
The old man was nowhere to be seen too. But Lu Shu felt that Li Xianyi was the least of his concern now…
As he quickly threw the ten plus shurikens to his divine water, Lu Shu examined the surroundings. Those tunnels extended to all directions, and one could easily get trapped inside, let alone locate the relic!
As a matter of fact, they had enough manpower in the Koh Chang remains this time. But their power would be significantly diluted if they were to disperse into hundreds of groups for further exploration.
Then, they would be easily taken advantage of by the local creatures in the remains.
At that moment, Lu Shu heard a loud tumult from inside the palace. But he did not think much about it, as Li Yixiao’s capabilities could really live up to his title of a Heavenly King.
Besides, did he not just provide some help? After all, he had suffered so many shurikens for Li Yixiao!
Generally speaking, though unreliable, Li Yixiao’s fighting abilities were rather trustworthy.
At this moment, however, he saw Li Yixiao dash out, his head lowered. Li Yixiao roared, “Run, mate!”
Lu Shu, “…”
