Chapter 547 – Blood Ghost Assassin Group
He endured it again.
If it weren’t for giving Qin Changtian face, Luo Tian would’ve gone off by himself already.
Luo Tian glared back and said with disdain: “If this was the human’s world, you would be dead already.”
He said this without any trace of politeness.
Humans all had three fires burning above them.¹ This daddy will endure crap for two times, but if you still want to act like a cheap bastard the third time, then there’s no need to give you face anymore. There are always those cheap kinds of people where you want to give them face yet they don’t accept it.
“What did you say?”
“You dare say such words to our commander?”
“Trash, looks like you’re tired of living.”
Before that person could say anything else…
Luo Tian’s figure moved while releasing level 7 Berserk. And with Nine Dragons and Elephants stacked on as well, he suddenly leaned to the right.
One of the Frost Dragon Warriors was smashed flying.
Within an instant…
Luo Tian’s brows furrowed, “Shadewind Steps, level 9!”
Before that Frost Dragon Warrior’s body landed, Luo Tian already appeared behind him. A kick sent him flying back up into the air. Luo Tian’s figure instantly rose into the air as well and kicked that Frost Dragon Warrior back down onto the ground.
Luo Tian landed on top of that person and straddled his body. He then charged up his powers into his right arm.
“Stay your hand!” Kai Lun roared out.
Luo Tian, who was sitting on top of the Frost Dragon Warrior’s body, coldly stared back at Kai Lun. He sneered in disdain before his gaze turned gloomy and stared at the Frost Dragon Warrior lying below him.
“Don’t, don’t, don’t kill me.”
“I’m, I’m, I’m begging you!”
The Frost Dragon Warrior was begging for mercy.
Kai Lun shouted in anger once more: “I told you to stay your hand!”
Luo Tian didn’t look at him at all. His fist turned into red hot magma before he heavily smashed down.
The ground split apart and formed a deep fist imprint.
Luo Tian stood up and coldly said in disdain: “A Frost Dragon Warrior, huh? Couldn’t even take a single blow.”
After saying that…
Luo Tian didn’t look back and just walked back to his original position. He didn’t give Kai Lun a single glance like he was ignoring his existence.
That Frost Dragon Warrior lying on the ground was still shaking. His eyes were filled with fear and the crotch area of his pants was wet. If that punch really smashed down onto him, he was definitely going to die. It was fortunate that the punch wasn’t aimed for him.
Everyone was shocked.
Kai Lun stood there unmoving with an extremely ugly look on his face.
The power, speed, and the string of actions was something none of them could compare with. Several attacks were completed in just a short one second of time. This kind of speed was too overpowering!
Now, these warriors felt that they were the joke themselves.
Luo Tian’s combination attack was similar to fiercely slapping their faces. No one could say a single word. Kai Lun was speechless as well, and was thinking what kind of reactions could he take if those attacks were aimed at him?
He kept thinking.
After thinking for a long time, he still couldn’t think of a way to crack Luo Tian’s lightning speed attack.
He had no way to solve it!
With his current cultivation realm, there was no way for him to break those attacks.
Kai Lun clenched his fists and the joints cracked. His expression was extremely unsightly before coldly shouting: “Why are you still lying there?! You’ve lost all face for our Frost Dragon Warriors! Why aren’t you standing up so we can continue our journey?!”
After lecturing that person angrily, Kai Lun glanced at Luo Tian but didn’t say anything.
Qin Changtian said in a serious manner: “Uncle Kai Lun, big brother Luo Tian is my friend. We should be treating each other with respect.”
Little Xie added: “His strength is much stronger than you guys by a large margin.”
Kai Lun didn’t say a word. He looked at the Frost Dragon Warriors who were still dumbstruck and said: “Why the hell are you guys so stunned? Unwilling to submit? If you don’t submit, you can go make your move. If you don’t dare to, then quickly continue with our journey.”
Those Frost Dragon Warriors lowered their heads and quickly walked forward.
For a brief moment…
The team became silent for a while.
None of them were speaking.
Some of those Frost Dragon Warriors either consciously or unconsciously kept glancing at Luo Tian.
Luo Tian didn’t care about it. If those guys dared to touch his bottom line again, he will no longer show mercy as he did before. He was merely giving them a reminder previously to not act wildly on top of a tiger’s head. Besides, this tiger was one that could easily go batshit crazy.
Everyone walked in silence.
Their traveling speed wasn’t very fast because Kai Lun and his team kept cautiously watching their surroundings.
It was as if they were scared someone was tailing them.
Luo Tian was a bit confused.
Little Xie whispered: “Tai Long has a Blood Ghost Assassin Group under him. They are good at disguises and concealing themselves for assassinations. They can even turn their bodies formless to enter the ground, trees, or even the air itself.”
“Many of our Dragon race experts have died by their hands.”
Luo Tian was stunned by this and asked: “Since they are so hard to deal with, why aren’t we quickly flying through all of this?”
Kai Lun then said softly: “The Blood Ghost Assassin Group isn’t an entity you can dodge just by being fast. The faster we go, the faster the scent on our bodies will reveal our location. They can find us through our scent. If they discover our stronghold location, our Dragon race’s last resting place will be as good as gone.”
“If our speeds are slow, we will give off less scent and it will disappear faster,” added Qin Changtian.
Luo Tian faintly sighed and said to himself: “Such a large Dragon race yet they are scared to this point by a group of assassins. The Dragon race is like a tiger leaving the hills and descending to the plains. ² I don’t even know if the Sky Dragon’s Bead is at the stronghold or not. And I don’t even know if I can find the Dragon God’s Soul.”
“How did it turn out like this?”
This was completely different from what he imagined.
Every common person knew the Sky Palace was a powerful and mysterious place. Who would’ve imagined that this place would be filled with rivers of blood and has turned into a world of slaughter?
The Dragon race had become a turtle hiding in its shell. They were scared to death of an assassin group.
Kai Lun waved his hand to have everyone stop. He furrowed his brows while his spiritual senses spread out like a wave. He closed his eyes and tried to sense any abnormal auras in the surroundings and the distinct scent of Blood Ghosts.
After stopping for a few seconds…
Kai Lun lowered his right hand and said: “Something’s a bit off but I can’t sense any Blood Ghosts. We will reach our dragon race’s defensive line if we keep walking for a few more kilometers. The Blood Ghost Assassin Group would not dare to enter that casually.”
The hearts of the seven Frost Dragon Warriors slightly relaxed.
“We’re almost there, finally.”
Kai Lun then said: “Your Highness, do you want to rest a bit before continuing? The rest of the path is very safe so resting here isn’t a problem.”
Qin Changtian looked at everyone and realized everyone had been concentrating their spiritual senses the entire journey. They looked rather exhausted after lowering their concentration, so he said: “Then we will rest here for a bit.”
Just when Kai Lun was about to speak…
Luo Tian suddenly made a hand motion for them to cease talking. “Shoosh~…”
His brows furrowed.
“Titan God’s Soul, release!”
Over ten thousand deceased souls of the Titan race stacked into Luo Tian’s mind. His sensing abilities increased several times, exceeding his current cultivation realm. Suddenly, he detected twelve auras filled with blood approaching them.
His countenance changed and he immediately shouted: “They’re here!”
¹ – A Chinese superstition that humans have three fires floating above them. One over their head and two over their shoulders. When walking at night and you feel like something supernatural is following behind, you cannot look back or that “ghost” will blow out one of the fires. When all three fires are blown out, then your time is up, and will die very soon. The author is using this as a “three strikes and you’re out” type of scenario.
² – Tigers in China usually live in forests and rocky mountains. So the Chinese saying is that tigers lose their advantage once they are in an open plain, even though we know that isn’t the case. The author wants to say the Dragon race was once strong but has now become a weakling.
