Chapter 834: Old Demon Devour
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Each time he passed by this place, Tang Wulin always had the feeling he had returned to Shrek Academy. He truly missed the days spent in the academy! Although they had cultivated painstakingly back then, at least there was no simultaneous torture of their body and soul.
It was not easy for him to endure the first part, and now he had to undergo the second part. This was his first time meeting Old Demon Devour. What on earth would he want?
Tang Wulin was most worried about his comrades’ situation. He had been separated from everyone for such a long time that he had completely no idea what had transpired. He did not know if his comrades were still alive.
As the captain, he had led everyone here to undergo their military training. If anything were to happen, he would be held accountable.
Old Demon Devour let go of Tang Wulin’s hand. His voice was hoarse and loud. It reverberated in the forest.
“There’s no need to worry about your comrades. You only have to worry about yourself. Relax, without my orders, Nightmare will not do anything to them. They love to torture others, but I don’t. Only immature demons such as them would resort to those low-level pastimes. Your life will be much more pleasant if you come with me. Do you know why my title is Devour?”
A pleasant life?
Tang Wulin’s expression did not change, but he was thinking in his heart, ‘I’ll be stupid to believe in you!’
In the beginning, he actually trusted Old Demon Blight a little. However, after the ordeal of absorbing the Destruction Aura and the incidents following that, how could he not realize that Blight was actually no different from Nightmare?
Since this fellow before him was also one of the old demons, how could he be better than the rest? He would only be torturing him differently.
Since he did not know what the old demon wanted, he decided to keep silent. He did not have a choice but to endure the tortures of these old demons. In Tang Wulin’s heart, there had always been a sliver of hope from the beginning till the end. He hoped that the challenges he currently faced were just tests from the academy, and these old demons were only testing them. It was with this hope that he managed to persist through all the pain he encountered.
Old Demon Devour looked at Tang Wulin with a deep and profound gaze. “The reason why I’m called Devour is because I love to eat. I loved to eat ever since a long time ago, and after I became a demon, I loved eating even more. So, I’m different from them. All of them have mental issues because it’s really boring here when you have nothing better to do. I’m the only one who has fun on Demon Island all this while, and that is to eat. As long as I have something to eat, I’ll never feel bored. Eating gives me joy and pleasure.
Eat? When he heard this, Tang Wulin instinctively gulped. If he counted the days, it must have been at least three months since he arrived here, and he had not eaten anything. He had completely relied on the dense life source here to support his body. Although this did not affect his body’s condition, to a person used to replenishing his energy by eating, having nothing to eat was definitely great suffering.
There was now an old demon in front of him who said that he liked to eat. Tang Wulin suddenly felt a strong sense of hunger charging into his sea of spirit. It was not a biological reaction but purely psychological.
When Old Demon Devour saw Tang Wulin gulping, he instantly smiled. “Looks like you’re also a fan of eating, am I right?” When he said this, he clicked his fingers loudly. “Then it seems that we share something in common. From now on, you’ll eat everything I eat. I guarantee you’ll pass very easily.”
Tang Wulin said without hesitation, “What shall we eat?”
Old Demon Devour snickered. “Relax, I won’t bring you anything repulsive. Since we’re eating, then we must eat the kinds of food that are full of nutrients, and it must be something edible. Come, young man.”
As he spoke, he had already made his way into the forest. Tang Wulin hastily followed behind him.
Old Demon Devour stopped after walking a few steps. Then, he squatted and dug some dirt under a dark green bamboo plant. He made a hook with his finger and hooked out a big, dark green worm that was about three inches in length and fat as a finger.
The worm was completely dark green and seemed slightly transparent. It wriggled furiously trying to struggle out of Old Demon Devour’s hand.
Old Demon Devour’s right hand dug the dirt again. He dug out another worm in no time.
An uncomfortable foreboding filled Tang Wulin’s mind in an instant, ‘No way…’
At this very moment, he saw that Old Demon Devour had tossed one of the worms into his own mouth and began chewing on it. He even seemed to be enjoying it. A yellow fluid flowed down the corners of his lips.
“Ugh…” Tang Wulin reacted reflexively. He turned around and began retching.
This was truly disgusting. Even though he loved to eat, he would never eat worms! He was repulsed looking at Old Demon Devour’s current appearance.
At this moment, a dark green figure appeared before him. As he looked at the wriggling body, he could see a layer of yellow fine hairs on its body upon closer inspection. Tang Wulin’s expression changed drastically, and he shot toward the side like lightning.
For him, eating was always the most enjoyable thing on the continent. However, at the moment, when he saw the overly disgusting worm being placed in front of him, having not eaten for so many days, Tang Wulin could hardly repress his body’s reaction. He practically turned around and ran. He cared little for anything else. All he wanted to do was to get away from that Old Demon Devour that instant.
Regardless of how swiftly he moved, whether he used Tang Sect’s Secret Technique, Ghost Shadow Perplexing Track, or Golden Dragon Flies’ dashing speed, he could not be rid of the dark green worm which was dangling in front of his eyes. It did not show any signs of being thrown off.
Tang Wulin continued to run as he retched.
Suddenly, there was a dizzy sensation. Shortly after, he was forcibly pressed onto the ground. He barely had time to react when he felt his entire body went numb. The soul power and blood essence power within his body were shackled. Then, a large hand pinched his nose.
When his nose was pinched, Tang Wulin instinctively opened his mouth to breathe. In the next moment, he looked on as the dark green, wriggling worm was being shoved into his mouth.
Old Demon Devour pushed Tang Wulin’s chin upward with one hand, and Tang Wulin’s mouth closed naturally.
The feeling of a worm wriggling desperately in one’s mouth…
His hairs stood on end, and his vision darkened. His body reacted violently to the feeling of disgust. However, there was nothing he could do. He could not even lift a finger.
Old Demon Devour’s hoarse voice sounded beside his ear, “I told you that we’re only going to eat. Why’re you running away? I hate those who don’t treat their food properly the most. Since you’re unwilling to eat it, then I’ll let this bamboo worm be digested slowly in your saliva. You’ll feel it wriggling, then at some point, it’ll stop wriggling. Then, it’ll slowly turn into a liquid which will flow down along your throat. You’ll feel it become one with your body. Hmm, isn’t that wonderful? This process takes almost a day to complete. You can’t move nor do anything. I can see the changes in your eyes and your facial expression. Looking at your expression of enjoying this delicacy, oh, it’s so wonderful. I must start thinking about what we should eat for tomorrow.”
