Chapter 577 – Awful Three Days
Eggy was at the edge of death!
Even in his dreams, Luo Tian never imagined Eggy would use his life to endure Black Dragon King’s attacks.
If he knew he was going to do this, there was no way he would allow Eggy to do it. He would rather die himself than watch a brother of his die.
Just when Luo Tian was in despair…
The system gave off an alert tone.
In an instant…
Luo Tian’s mind became nervous and sincere. He had never been so sincere in his life to request something: “I’m begging you, oh mighty heavens. You have to let Eggy continue living. I am willing to use my life as exchange.”
Luo Tian was at the edge of collapsing.
Eggy’s voice was gradually getting softer. It was similar to an elderly person’s voice getting weaker as they approached their time of death. Luo Tian’s heart was in agonizing pain!
“The hatching of the dragon egg has been brought ahead of time!”
“Three-day time limit to hatch!”
“Required hatching item: Dragon God’s Soul.”
“Once the time is up, the hatching will be considered a failure, and the dragon egg will be destroyed.”
“If the hatching is successful, affinity is increased to 100 points and it will never leave you!”
These were the system alert messages.
Luo Tian was listening with all seriousness and even repeated the words after the system. “Three days… I have three days as a time limit. I still have a chance. Eggy, you have to hold on. I will complete the quest and get the Dragon God’s Soul. I will definitely have you hatch out successfully.”
Luo Tian’s heart was trembling.
It was simply too short! He had to kill Nether King and the super boss Tai Long. All of this required time for preparations.
It wasn’t enough time!
But Luo Tian had no choice. If he couldn’t complete it in three days, the dragon egg was going to disappear and there would be no more Eggy. Luo Tian’s mind turned heavy and his body was filled with pain. But on the surface, he looked like the pain was non-existent while he locked his gaze onto Crescent Canyon’s direction. His eyes turned serious, “Eggy, I will have you hatch out no matter what price I have to pay. Even if I have to die, I will have you hatch out of your shell. Just wait for me!”
Luo Tian absorbed ten inner cores filled with immortal force. He released all his powers and focused it on his speed, blasting off towards Crescent Canyon like a rocket.
The only thing left from the second part of the SSS-rank quest was to kill Nether King!
At this time…
Luo Tian had become a slaughtering machine, a true madman!
Blood Sea City, main hall.
Tai Long had an extremely ugly look on his face while he stared at a certain direction of the Dragon Mountain. His eyes were bloodshot because his rage had reached an extreme point. “You damn human, you dare to ruin my plans and kill Black Dragon King?”
“A mere human was able to kill everyone in the Black Dragon Army…”
“After entering the Sky Palace, you started off at the Profound Venerate 5th rank and went all the way to the Profound Saint 1st rank. The speed of your breakthroughs is like someone flying up to the sky. Since you are able to make such quick breakthroughs at high cultivation realms, I must admit that you, Luo Tian, are truly not simple.”
“No matter how not simple you are or how much of a genius you are, blocking my path will only result in being stepped on below my foot.”
The muscles in the corner of Tai Long’s eyes twitched. Killing intent surged out as he shouted: “Send out my command – Nether King is to withdraw his troops back to Blood Sea City. He is to immediately return without delay!”
“Lord, most likely General Nether King is currently fighting the Dragon race. If we have him withdraw the troops at this time, I’m afraid we will hurt the morale of our soldiers. This move is a bit inappropriate, right?”
Tai Long’s eyes shot out a green light and the head of the Elder that said those words exploded. Brain matter splattered all over the place. Tai Long then shouted: “Who else wants to question me?! Go relay my commands now! I will take the life of whoever dares to speak useless crap to me again!”
He was already extremely angry.
He only sent out his spiritual senses and was able to cause a Profound Saint expert’s sea of consciousness to explode.
Everyone lowered their heads and was as quiet as a cicada at night. Some didn’t even dare to breathe loudly.
Tai Long coldly said: “Tell Nether King to do his best in defending Blood Sea City. I’m going to the Blood Sea Domain for seclusion.”
“You may be able to control the dragon stone pillar and use its powers, and you even have some type of red light divine artifact to protect your body that’s beyond my imagination. But no matter how strong you are, there’s no way you can be stronger than my soon to be Profound God realm.”
“The moment I exit my seclusion is the time of your death!”
The utmost peak of the Profound Emperor realm!
He was only a tiny little bit from breaking through to the Profound God realm. It’s possible to only take a second or it could take up to a year. But there’s no way Tai Long would need the whole year because the mysterious space he cultivates in, the Blood Sea Domain, allows him to progress at extraordinary speeds!
It doesn’t matter whether Tai Long can break into the Profound God realm or not.
This matter wasn’t good news for Luo Tian.
He only had three days of time left.
If he can’t kill Tai Long in three days, he won’t be able to get the Dragon God’s Soul and have Eggy hatch out. That means the dragon egg will die!
The time frame was extremely short.
Luo Tian rushed over with all his strength.
The place was a complete mess with countless wounded and dead. There were Dark Angels and Dragon race bodies strewn about.
Seeing Luo Tian’s appearance, Frost Dragon King immediately greeted him with a smile. “Brother Luo, why are you here? The Nether King’s army has already been repelled back six times by us. We can defend this area no problem.”
Kai Lun, Ai Xi, Ai Lun, and Little Xie all came over.
For the Frost Dragon clan, they had proven themselves to everyone with their strength today.
Qin Changtian also rushed over and said: “Big brother Luo Tian, you’re injured! And quite seriously! Quick, call Grandpa Mei Lin over!”
Luo Tian then asked: “Where’s the Nether King’s army?”
Frost Dragon King replied: “His army had suddenly withdrawn over ten kilometers. We didn’t chase after them afraid there would be an ambush. Brother Luo, how’s it going on your side?”
“It looks like Tai Long already knows Black Dragon King is dead. This Tai Long guy is even stronger than my expectations.” Luo Tian thought to himself.
Luo Tian looked at Qin Changtian and said: “Changtian, I need your help. I need you to accompany me and kill our way to Blood Sea City. I don’t have much time left. Based on my current cultivation, there’s no way I am Tai Long’s opponent so I will need your help.”
The only hope to kill Tai Long was the arcane secrets of the Sky Dragon’s Heart.
Luo Tian couldn’t cultivate that skill.
He could only count on Qin Changtian.
Qin Changtian looked at Luo Tian’s anxious expression and didn’t ask further. He immediately nodded and said: “Big brother Luo Tian, my life was given by you. Not to mention help, I wouldn’t even frown if you wanted me to die right here.”
“Thank you!” Luo Tian didn’t know what else to say. His heart was in chaos when knowing Eggy only had three days left. Dealing with both Nether King and Tai Long for the current he was truly beyond difficult.
Luo Tian immediately said: “Let’s head out!”
Frost Dragon King was confused. Things were happening too fast so he couldn’t understand the reasoning.
The surrounding people also couldn’t understand what was going on.
What was Luo Tian doing? Why was he in such a rush?
At this time…
A Dragon race member rushed over and reported: “General, Black Dragon King’s army was completely wiped out by Luo Tian. No one survived, including Black Dragon King himself.”
Everyone instantly became dumbstruck!
