Chapter 837: Poison Mist Falls
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Tang Wulin infuriated Old Demon Loathe almost to the point of insanity. In the end, he started to employ even more cold-blooded tactics. However, even after his bones were broken, Tang Wulin’s expression did not change, and his body would rapidly heal as well.
As for Tang Wulin’s weak spot on his torso, it was protected by the Mountain Dragon King’s Torso Bone. Unless Old Demon Loathe could shatter Tang Wulin’s body with a single attack, he would never be able to use his torture techniques on Tang Wulin’s internal organs.
“Little bastard, are you of the tortoise sign?” Old Demon Loathe threw his spiked club onto Tang Wulin’s body. He turned around and left. He had to vent his anger. If it did not work on this one, then he would have to look for another one!
Tang Wulin was finally put down. The one who came to show some kindness was still Old Demon Blight.
“That fellow Loathe is truly too vicious. Tang Wulin, are you alright?” Old Demon Blight looked at Tang Wulin with concern.
Tang Wulin only glared at him coldly. “What other methods do you guys have? Just use them all. When you’re at your wits’ end, will you think it’s time to let my companions go already?”
Old Demon Blight sighed. “That has nothing to do with me. This is all Old Demon Nightmare’s doing. All I can do for you is to limit him as much as possible so that he won’t actually release the poison mist.”
Tang Wulin made no sound. His suspicions of these old demons’ actions grew by the day.
No matter what, at least he was still alive and well.
After being thrashed by Old Demon Loathe, he had completely absorbed the life energy contained within the disgusting food which he ate alongside Old Demon Devour. The life energy was so strong that it was getting more difficult for him to prevent his extremely vigorous blood essence power from charging at the ninth level’s seal.
Tang Wulin could also feel that if he was willing, breaking through the ninth level’s seal would come as naturally as water through a channel. It would not even be too painful.
Now he had to divide his attention and use a large part of his energy to control the bloodline energy within himself so that it would not break through the seal of its own accord.
If the old demons were simply torturing them, they should have been getting weaker and weaker. Why were they growing stronger instead?
Also, although the entire torturing process was doubtlessly painful, Tang Wulin still benefited a lot from it.
He could feel himself improving in certain aspects. It was not only in terms of abilities but even more to his attitude.
When he saw Tang Wulin’s ice cold gaze, Old Demon Blight’s expression suddenly darkened. “Little boy, do you not know gratitude? Or maybe you think that I’m on the same side as them?”
Tang Wulin replied drily, “You’re not?”
Old Demon Blight said angrily, “Of course not! Alright, since you think that way, fine. I’ll not bother with you anymore. I’ll let Nightmare deal with you as he likes.”
After he had finished, he turned and left. With a sway of his body, he vanished.
Tang Wulin scoffed. How could he not see the show put on by Old Demon Blight for what it was? This was clearly him acting tough but really being timid. Whatever the case, he believed that these old demons would not let him off the hook that easily. The question was, what should he do now?
Just when Tang Wulin was lost in his own confusion, Old Demon Nightmare’s voice suddenly reached his ears.
“Very good. Now nobody’s protecting you lot. Well then, let’s make merry to our hearts’ content!”
Everything around him suddenly swerved and turned. When the dizziness faded, Tang Wulin was shocked to find that he was already inside a cavern.
The lighting was slightly dim. He could barely make out the things inside it.
He heard a series of groans. Tang Wulin immediately saw his companions whom he had been apart from for a long time now.
Xie Xie, Yue Zhengyu, Xu Lizhi, Yuanen Yehui, Xu Xiaoyan, and Ye Xinglan all woke up from their stupor, each one with a different expression.
Nevertheless, without exception, they had clearly experienced a certain amount of spiritual stimulation.
“How’s everyone? Are you guys alright?” When Tang Wulin saw his companions, he was flooded with emotions, and he hastily asked them questions. However, when he opened his mouth, he noticed that his voice was very hoarse.
The others barely managed to recover their consciousness, and their gazes were slightly dull.
At this point, rumbling sounds suddenly came from within the cavern. They did not have the time to react before iron bars fell from above and separated the seven of them.
Tang Wulin was isolated with Xu Xiaoyan. Behind the iron bars beside him were Xu Lizhi and Yuanen Yehui. Ye Xinglan, Yue Zhengyu, and Xie Xie were on the other side.
The Shrek Seven Monsters had been divided into three groups.
Tang Wulin was filled with an ominous feeling. Suddenly, puffs of dense mist suddenly erupted from above their heads. It was the pink mist that they had seen before.
“Not good. Hold your breath!” Tang Wulin almost screamed at the top of his lungs.
Everyone had witnessed this pink mist before, and they all attempted to hold their breath immediately.
However, they quickly noticed that their soul powers were completely sealed, and their bodies were sore and lifeless. Under such conditions, it was impossible for them to hold their breath for too long.
The pink mist filled the cavern, and then something more terrifying happened. The mist was like strands of silk as it started to creep into their skin.
They could prevent themselves from inhaling the mist by holding their breaths, but it was impossible to prevent it from seeping through their flesh.
When they saw the mist piercing their skin and their own bodies heating up, the seven of them started panicking.
Obviously, Old Demon Nightmare had planned their separation beforehand. None of the couples had been placed together.
Tang Wulin shouted angrily, “Guys, knock yourselves out, quickly!”
His willpower had always been very powerful. Although he felt the heat within his body making some of his body parts squirm, he still made the correct choice the first opportunity he got. He bashed his own head against the wall of the cavern without hesitation.
His head crashed into the cavern’s stone wall, but he was shocked to find it soft and completely elastic. Tang Wulin’s body bounced back and he fell to the ground on his buttocks.
Naturally, Yue Zhengyu, Xu Lizhi, and Xie Xie heard what Tang Wulin had said. They, too, carried out his suggestion at the first moment. However, they had exactly the same result as Tang Wulin. Their bodies rebounded, and they landed on the floor. Although they were slightly dizzy, they were still a long way off from being unconscious.
The seven of them were frightened, and the color drained from their faces.
The situation which they feared the most was now upon them. The pink mist grew thicker and thicker. Because of his shouting, Tang Wulin inevitably inhaled a few breaths of the mist.
The potency of the mist was overwhelming. This time, Tang Wulin’s Golden Dragon King bloodline could not protect him.
It was the Dragon Clan’s nature to be promiscuous. As the Dragon King, there was clearly no resistance toward this aspect within the Golden Dragon King’s bloodline. The Dragon Clan had always held themselves in high regard. When the King visited a place, it was seen as a passing down of their own bloodline and a grace at the same time. Otherwise, there would not have been that many Elemental Dragons in the world.
However, given the circumstances, this aspect was going to be lethal for Tang Wulin.
Tang Wulin felt like his temperature was as hot as scorching coals, and his entire body had reddened as if he was burnt. He grabbed onto the iron bars with his hands and slammed his head into them. However, the growing urge within his body showed no sign of weakening.
He was not able to summon his martial soul or bloodline power for help. He could not kill himself even if he wanted to. His powerful body was sufficient to protect him from any harm.
The others were not faring much better than Tang Wulin. Xu Xiaoyan was already moaning softly. She was willing herself to suppress her natural instincts.
Xu Lizhi was also on the verge of giving in to his urges. He curled his fat body in a corner. On the other side, Yuanen Yehui’s willpower was much firmer. Although her breathing was rushed, she could still restrain herself for now.
Xie Xie, Yue Zhengyu, and Ye Xinglan were in an even more peculiar situation. Ye Xinglan hid away in a far corner. She sat crossed-legged on the ground with beads of sweat forming on her forehead as she suppressed the effects of the poison mist.
For fear of violating her sanctity, Xie Xie and Yue Zhengyu backed away to the farthest corner, huddling closer to each other.
Even as their hearts filled with dread, their dark desires were getting increasingly uncontrollable.
“Zhengyu, kill me, please,” said Xie Xie to Yue Zhengyu with a bitter smile on his face.
Yue Zhengyu suddenly shouted angrily, “Why are you touching my damn thigh? If I can kill you, do you think I’ll show you mercy? Kill me if you can.”
“I didn’t touch your thigh. You’re the one who’s grabbing my waist, okay? Let me die! Just let me die!”
The more noise they made, the more pink mist they inhaled, and the more their bodies could not resist its effects.
“Old Demon Nightmare, what do you want us to do? I’ll agree to anything. Just stop this poison mist!” Tang Wulin shouted with a stern voice.
What they saw was one thing, but what they actually faced was something else entirely…
