Chapter 22 – Little Darling, Here I Come
After getting rid of Luo Qing and Wang Cheng, Luo Tian didn’t return to the cave.
The night had just begun and the hunt had just started. For such a good leveling place, why would Luo Tian waste his time going back now?
He sent out his senses and faintly detected a presence.
Luo Tian turned around with a faint smile before quickly diving into the midst of the dark forest.
A Six Legged Lizard fell to the ground while its body gradually stiffened. An alert then sounded off in Luo Tian’s mind.
He was currently surrounded by demonic beast corpses. His experience bar had gone up by a large portion and it was only missing a bit before he could level up.
Seeing all the experience points, Luo Tian faintly smiled and said to himself: “With the leveling system in my grasp, there’s no need to worry about raising my level. You’re so arrogant because you’re at the Profound Pupil 8th rank? Luo Lin, just watch how this daddy will smack you around!”
How can anyone compare to this speed of improvement?
In a short several days, he was about to level up to the Profound Pupil 6th rank. This was similar to riding on a space rocket!
The more he killed, the more powerful he felt. Luo Tian was currently drenched in the blood of demonic beasts. The blood on his body had dried up to the point where it looked like a blood red armor, and the scent of his body had basically become the thick smell of blood.
Several hours later...
Unknowingly, Luo Tian had arrived at the edge of the hunting grounds. The danger within the darkness had become more intense, and there were many pairs of dark green eyes currently staring at Luo Tian.
On top of a cliff, a Wolf King with a white mane at the height of 2 meters and a length of 3 meters started howling.
A heart palpitating wolf howl reverberated throughout the forest.
Right after that, many dozens of wolves also howled along as if creating a resonance.
After howling, the huge wolf jumped off the cliff and quickly dashed towards Luo Tian’s location. The midst of the forest also started getting restless.
“Did I encounter a pack of wolves?”
Surprise hit Luo Tian’s state of mind, yet a cold smile were formed on his lips. He then said to himself: “This big brother was coincidentally missing a bit of experience to level up and was thinking whether I should exit out of the hunting grounds to kill demonic beasts. Now that you guys are seeking your own deaths, it exactly suits my needs!”
The eyebrows of Luo Tian tightened before he senses locked onto a Scarlet Flamed Wolf before charging out.
The difficulty level of dealing with pack of wolves weren’t the same as others.
Their attacks were different than other demonic beasts. Under the Wolf King’s command, there was a pattern to their attacks as they coordinated with each other. They were even able to use some battle tactics.
The combat power of a mere dozens of wolves was equivalent to a hundred other demonic beasts.
Wealth always comes with risks. The sudden appearance of dozens of wolves meant over ten thousand experience points, right?
Moreover, fighting against a pack wolves will be able to enhance his own combat skills. Fighting on the line between life and death will be a great help to Luo Tian. Only when one faced adversity would one quickly improve.
Luo Tian roared out as his right fist struck out with a trace of lightning.
That Scarlet Flamed Wolf cried out flying off to the side while another wolf pounced off from its hind legs flying through the air.
“You’re courting death!”
Luo Tian’s left fist quickly swept out while he quickly moved to the right afterwards. When one punch succeeded, his second punch would follow up.
“Bang, bang, bang~…”
A series of punches smashed the Scarlet Flamed Wolf’s head and he didn’t stop until he heard the system alert in his mind.
More and more Scarlet Flamed Wolves surrounded Luo Tian with him in the middle. They started strutting around him in circles while letting off low growls.
They were all glaring at Luo Tian but not attacking as if they were waiting for something.
It was without a doubt that they were waiting for the Wolf King!
Luo Tian knew this point so that’s why before the Wolf King’s arrival, he wanted to kill as much Scarlet Flamed Wolves as possible. Once the Wolf King appears, the explosive power behind this pack of wolves would be immeasurable.
Moreover, the Wolf King was a rank 2 demonic beast. With Luo Tian’s Profound Pupil 5th rank strength, there’s no way he can deal with it!
Focusing his state of mind, Luo Tian’s eyes revealed killing intent. He then clenched his fist before quickly rushing outwards once more.
“Thunder Tiger Charge!”
“Die for me!”
Luo Tian’s pair of fists was like a torrential rain as it continuously struck out. Wherever his fists landed, blood would splash out like a dance of death.
Without the command of the Wolf King, the pack of wolves was in a complete mess and was no threat to Luo Tian.
But Luo Tian clearly knew this was only a temporary situation!
In less than half a minute...
A howl that could steal one’s soul came from a distance. The eyes of the Scarlet Flamed Wolves changed and they started baring their long fangs. Their previous look of fear had now transformed into a look of viciousness.
All the Scarlet Flamed Wolves stopped retreating and started edging closer towards Luo Tian.
Luo Tian’s lips formed a sneer as he mumbled: “Has the Wolf King arrived?”
Another howl was heard. The five Scarlet Flamed Wolves in the front then initiated their attack, revealing chill inducing fangs reflecting the moonlight from the gap of the leaves.
Luo Tian lightly exhaled while his heart calmed down. He then roared out: “Kill!”
His pair of fists was like an illusion as it struck out four times in less than a second. That speed was already his limit which was also the shackle of someone at the Profound Pupil 5th rank. Four Scarlet Flamed Wolves fell to the ground while the system alert sounded off in his mind.
A claw swiped at him and the clothes on Luo Tian’s shoulder was shredded. Three lines of blood appeared and the pain caused Luo Tian to suddenly suck in a breath of air.
A claw swipe had succeeded and the wolf immediately retreated!
It was at this instant that ten Scarlet Flamed Wolves pounced forth.
Luo Tian’s mind tensed up since he never expected the Wolf King’s intelligence to be so high. And under the command of the Wolf King, this pack of wolves seemed to be unafraid of death.
Since five of them didn’t work, then try ten. If ten wolves didn’t work, most likely there would be even more after that.
“What the f*ck, isn’t this a tactic to wear me out?”
Luo Tian frowned as he faced ten Scarlet Flamed Wolves. His eyes locked in a direction and said to himself: “I have to get rid of the Wolf King first or else they’ll tire me to death!”
Luo Tian roared in his mind, “Berserk!”
His strength and speed suddenly surged. In that instant, Luo Tian quickly escaped the attack of the ten Scarlet Flamed Wolves and shot off towards a large tree.
His target was the Wolf King behind the large tree!
It was originally dark in the forest and for someone at the Profound Pupil 5th rank; their vision wouldn’t extend further than 2 - 3 meters out. So how did Luo Tian find the presence of the Wolf King behind the large tree?
It’s very simple - the Wolf King was a mini boss and there was a golden light below its feet.
Such an eye-catching golden light amidst this dark and gloomy forest, how can Luo Tian not see it?
Upon seeing that Luo Tian was rushing towards the Wolf King, the eyes of the other Scarlet Flamed Wolves turned vicious and red as they pounced right after him. As for the huge white Wolf King, its eyes deepened in thought as it bared its fangs. It started issuing a low growl before a ferocious aura burst out of its body.
Without waiting for Luo Tian to arrive, the Wolf King pounced out himself.
Its huge body gave off an unprecedented heavy pressure as it weighed down on Luo Tian’s state of mind. Its body was like a huge chunk of lead as it crushed down, the pressure making one’s spirit feel extremely uncomfortable. Luo Tian’s expression tensed up and cursed out: “That motherf*cker, it knows how to use formless pressure on others, shit!”
In that instant...
The Wolf King swiped its claws in midair and two cold and incomparably sharp wind blades reflected the moonlight.
“A special skill?”
Shock appeared on Luo Tian’s face as he retrieved his fists and rolled his body to dodge the wind blades. He awkwardly got up from the ground and before he even regained his balance, the Wolf King once again released another pair of wind blades.
There was a deep cut left behind on the tree. If the wind blades landed on a person, their body would most likely split into two.
“Oh crap, I’m completely not its opponent.” Luo Tian started panicking inside. This Wolf King was probably a rank 3 demonic beast, and probably one of the stronger ones amongst that rank. This was the power behind a boss level character.
Since he failed his sneak attack, Luo Tian started retreating and was once again surrounded by the Scarlet Flamed Wolves.
Seeing Luo Tian’s awkward demeanor, the Wolf King’s eyes revealed a look of disdain and ridicule. It was as if the Wolf King was laughing at Luo Tian for being unable to know the immensity of the heavens and the earth.
“What the f*ck, I’m being laughed at by a beast.”
Flames started flaring in Luo Tian’s heart as he cursed: “You motherf*cker, you dare to laugh at this daddy? Just watch how this daddy will play you to death!”
Luo Tian had been ridiculed a lot lately and even though his face looked fine, there was an inferno brewing in his heart. Never would he have imagined that even a demonic beast would ridicule him, so how could he take it anymore?
If he doesn’t play that demonic beast to death, how would he have face to continuing living?
Luo Tian did a quick glance at his experience bar and then coldly sneered to himself, “A Profound Pupil 5th rank isn’t your opponent, then what about a Profound Pupil 6th rank?”
Luo Tian looked like he went crazy as he released all the power of Berserk. He then rushed towards the pack of wolves and death was abound with every punch.
The amount of Scarlet Flamed Wolves rapidly declined.
Since Luo Tian’s strength doubled, killing these rank 1 demonic beasts was as simple as killing chickens. No matter how talented the Wolf King was at commanding them, it was still useless.
This was how powerful Berserk was!
In less than a minute, an extra ten plus Scarlet Flamed Wolf corpses appeared, and the pack of wolves were reduced by a half.
The last ounce of power behind Berserk exploded forth as Luo Tian heavily smashed out.
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for killing a Scarlet Flamed Wolf. You have gained 200 experience points, 20 profound energy…”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for leveling up. Your current level is Profound Pupil 6th rank!”
“I’ve leveled up!”
“Hahaha…” Luo Tian laughed into the air. The injuries on his body quickly healed while his stamina was recovered. He then stared at the Wolf King off in a distance before coldly saying: “Little darling, here I come!”
