After being devoured by the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile, the bronze square tripod flowed along with its gooey, smelly saliva and fell into a gigantic sealed space.
Escaping death momentarily, Su Zimo heaved a sigh of relief and extended his head warily, scanning his surroundings with a bright gaze.
This should be the stomach of the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile!
The grisly red walls of the stomach contracted endlessly and let out a nasty stench. Lined with blood vessels that resembled little snakes slithering, the place looked horrifying.
The stomach walls were lined with a layer of thick, green liquid that increased as time passed by, letting out a piercing stench.
Was that the digestive fluids of the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile?
Su Zimo furrowed his brows slightly.
Withdrawing a supreme-grade flying sword from his storage bag, he used it to tap the thick green liquid gently.
Su Zimo’s expression changed and he released his grip right away.
In the blink of an eye, the supreme-grade flying sword was corroded and turned into pus water.
Su Zimo was shocked.
If he reacted slower earlier on, his palm would have been corroded away!
What a strong corrosive power!
Su Zimo estimated that the digestive fluids of the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile could turn him into liquid within ten breaths!
It did not matter how strong his regeneration powers were.
Digestive fluids started flowing down along the walls of the stomach and Su Zimo hid inside the bronze square tripod hurriedly – he did not dare to be in contact with the digestive fluids.
Gradually, the thick, green digestive fluids started accumulating within the stomach.
Although the bronze square tripod was surrounded by digestive fluids, it was not corroded. In fact, even the green rust on its surface did not vanish either!
Standing within the bronze square tripod, Su Zimo had a grim expression.
He was not out of danger yet!
The bronze square tripod was only slightly taller than a meter and yet, the digestive fluids were accumulating. Once it drowns the tripod, he would have nowhere to hide.
Furthermore, the space within the stomach was limited.
With the digestive fluids increasing in volume continuously, there was no way he would be able to avoid them later on!
Bang! Boom! Boom!
The stomach grumbled like rumbling thunder.
The muscles of the stomach had started contracting.
Taken by surprise, Su Zimo nearly flew out of the bronze square tripod.
Steadying himself hurriedly, his face turned paler.
He had to think up a way to get out of this situation as soon as possible!
If this carried on, he would definitely die!
In the darkness, Su Zimo’s expression was dark as he glared at the stomach walls lined with gooey digestive fluids. His gaze was resolved and he made his decision.
Standing in the bronze square tripod and avoiding the dripping digestive fluids, Su Zimo approached the stomach walls of the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile.
This was his only chance.
Extending his right hand, Su Zimo paused for a moment before taking a deep breath of air. With a savage gaze, he used his palm like a knife and stabbed the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile’s stomach walls!
The flesh on his palm was the first to make contact with the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile’s digestive fluids.
The frightening corrosive power of the digestive fluids was shown once more as the flesh on Su Zimo’s right hand was completely melted, revealing a scarlet bone palm within.
The divine phoenix bone!
That was Su Zimo’s plan.
Since he could not invoke the power of the divine phoenix bone with his own strength, he would have to make use of external factors!
The digestive fluids wanted to continue up Su Zimo’s wrist after melting the flesh on his palm.
However, as though it was triggered, the divine phoenix bone let out a terrifying aura and a thin layer of flames burned on the bone palm.
Cracks appeared in the surrounding void after being burned by those flames!
Although the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile’s digestive fluids were strong, they were burned away by the flames of the divine phoenix bone!
Su Zimo’s eyes lit up brightly as he thrust the blood bone palm fiercely into the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile’s flesh.
The divine phoenix flames surged into the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile’s body!
Above the lava.
Hovering in midair, the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile was dreaming about its beautiful future when suddenly, a sharp pain surged from its stomach and it almost fainted!
The Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile let out a tragic howl.
Initially, the little fox was fearful hidden beneath the iron basket. When it heard the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile yell, it could not help but jump.
Hurriedly, it peered through the gap on the top of the iron basket and looked outside.
A bloodied hole could be seen from the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile’s abdomen.
Furthermore, the hole was expanding at a terrifying speed and would engulf his entire body before long.
There was no blood dripping from the hole – all of it was burned into blood qi and dissipated in the air.
The massive body of the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile twisted in midair as it howled endlessly. However, it could not stop the spread of the fire.
Those were the flames of the divine phoenix and were absolutely destructive, spreading from within his body!
The little fox was horrified.
Instinctively, it reached out and grabbed the sides of the iron basket with its tiny paws. Once again, it lifted the basket and watched everything unfold with confusion.
Where did the fire come from?
Why did it suddenly burn?
All of a sudden!
A bronze square tripod flew through the layers of flames.
From it, a nude man jumped out. His hair was charred and he was pitch-black in a wretched state as though he was just struck by a thunderbolt.
Shocked and dumbfounded, the little fox’s tiny paws released their grip and the iron basket fell to its side.
Isn’t that the gentlemanly scholar from just now?
He isn’t dead?
The little fox beamed brightly and was truly happy for Su Zimo from the bottom of its heart.
However, immediately after, the little fox exclaimed and covered its eyes in a sheepish manner, lamenting to itself, “But this scholar, really… why does he love to expose himself so much…?”
In midair, the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile had not given up on trying to survive yet.
He had cultivated an Essence Spirit as well.
As long as his Essence Spirit survived, he would not be dead in an absolute sense.
However, he was only a low-level fiend demon and his Essence Spirit was extremely fragile, similar to an infant without protecting. Given the treacherous environment with lava all around, it could die at any moment.
However, the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile could not care that much anymore.
The power of the flames was too terrifying and was almost reaching his head!
At that time, he would be dead for sure without the chance to even send his Essence Spirit away!
A streak of light shot out from the head of the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile.
Focusing his gaze, Su Zimo saw that it was a translucent little crocodile.
An Essence Spirit!
It was truly a fiend demon!
Su Zimo’s heart skipped a beat.
He saw that the Essence Spirit of the Scarlet Armored Gigantic Crocodile was extremely fragile, unlike a combat Essence Spirit that did not fear daylight or ominous winds.
In midair, the Essence Spirit of the gigantic crocodile shuddered against the heatwave of the lava and its aura turned even weaker!
Low-level fiend demons were equivalent to Nascent Soul Perfected Lord cultivators.
Although their Essence Spirits could exit their bodies, they were easily damaged and could not linger outside for too long.
The Essence Spirit of the gigantic crocodile sped with its might towards the exit of the cave.
Su Zimo opened his mouth widely and bellowed.
A gigantic explosion similar to rumbling thunder broke out from beside the gigantic crocodile’s Essence Spirit!
Shuddering violently, the Essence Spirit of the gigantic crocodile turned even dimmer and cracks started appearing on its surface.
To begin with, his Essence Spirit was injured and had not recovered entirely.
Now that it received such serious injuries consecutively, his Essence Spirit was on the brink of destruction!
