This man is indeed as mad they say!
He would chop off the arm of a powerful foe even if it meant death! It's also because of his suicidal military strategy that he has become so renowned! You could say that the Grand Lord Hong Lian has stepped out from the mark of blood!
The fight in mid-air grew more intense. Gu Ruoyun gently raised her head. The fight between the man and the dragon was reflected clearly in her clear, cold gaze.
Everyone else was clearly battered and exhausted. Only the man in red robes continued to move with elegance and grace. His hand held the Red Lotus Spear and his eyes were incredibly pronounced. When faced with such a powerful dragon, he showed no signs of weakness. His handsome face remained calm and collected.
As the two remained embroiled in battle, the fallen trees around them turned into smoke and a raging flame ignited in the forest.
Before everyone's eyes, a spiritual egg became visible on an altar behind the dragon.
Because the distance was far too great, Gu Ruoyun could not make out the purple markings on the spiritual beast egg. However, based on its texture, she had a feeling that it was a phoenix egg. Could this really be a phoenix egg as well?
Suddenly, a ray of light appeared in the spiritual beast egg. Xiao Zixie, who had been in the Ancient Divine Pagoda, could no longer contain himself. He rushed straight out and charged swiftly towards the spiritual beast egg, taking advantage of everyone's distraction as they looked at the fight between the man and the dragon.
The dragon was thoroughly angered when it saw that someone had dared to steal the egg in front of it. This act cannot go unpunished!
However, just as it was about to turn angrily towards Zixie's tiny body which was rapidly approaching it... It seemed to become stunned. A wave of astonishment appeared in its eyes and the initial menace in its gaze instantly disappeared.
Gu Ruoyun had initially assumed that Xiao Zixie had taken a liking to the spiritual beast egg and intended to take it for her. However, what she did not expect was for him to open his mouth as soon as he had arrived in front of the egg and to swallow it whole.
Xiao Zixie had swallowed the spiritual beast egg. Not even the crowd could react in time for this...
His actions completely stirred the hornet's nest. The cultivators who had initially been engrossed in their battle with the dragon were immediately filled with rage. Their eyes glared murderously at Xiao Zixie.
We're here fighting with our lives but in the end, this kid had taken advantage of the chaos and snatched away the spiritual beast egg!
The man in red glanced at Xiao Zixie and returned to Gu Ruoyun's side in a flash. He then spoke regretfully, "I was thinking of making that Spiritual Beast Egg into a tonic for you but that kid had got to it first."
Gu Ruoyun's mouth twitched. Since when had Xiao Zixie turned into a glutton? He would even consume a spiritual beast egg!
Supreme Jin was speechless as he watched the events unfold before him. He furrowed his brows before quickly relaxing them. After all, the spiritual beast egg was not the true goal of his journey here. He has no qualms if it fell into the hands of another.
He said nothing more at the thought of this. He then straightened his sleeves and left.
Before he left, he instinctively turned to take one more look at Gu Ruoyun who was standing next to the man in red. He then disappeared into the sky without another glance...
Xiao Zixie wiped his mouth and walked to Gu Ruoyun's side. He spared no time for the cultivators to react as he licked his lips and disappeared into thin air.
"Damned girl, speak. Is that kid related to you?"
When he saw that the dragon was no longer attacking them, Yu Xinglong immediately shifted his attention away from it. He glared at Gu Ruoyun furiously and gnashed his teeth as he questioned her.
Gu Ruoyun shrugged her shoulders and looked completely innocent, "I don't know who he is."
