Chapter 249 – The Show Is Just Starting
"Are you done yet?"
"It's been over 4 hours already."
"Is this how you show me your arrogance?"
"This is your true strength? Brat, you have completely disappointed me. You think by placing demon cores all over the place and you've become awesome?" Wild Blade sneered with disdain.
After four full hours, Luo Tian had followed the path he had cleared and placed demon cores at certain locations. Wild Blade was getting impatient and had a look that he didn't want to wait any longer.
Deep in his heart, he actually wanted to know what Luo Tian was planning on doing.
He understood there was a reason Luo Tian was doing this.
But Luo Tian was silent all this time and didn't respond to his words, which made him a bit annoyed.
Wild Blade once again said impatiently: "Hey brat, what the hell are you doing?"
Luo Tian finally exhaled and said with a smile: "I'm gonna show you how fierce I am."
"With just this?"
"Right, with just this."
"Did you slam your head into a door recently or were you bitten by a dog when you were young?"
"How did you know?"
"I… fine, I give up."
Luo Tian didn't stop for four hours. The path he cleared was a large circle; a circle that took thirteen days to kill his way through. Could you imagine how big this circle was?
Not long after…
Luo Tian placed the last demon core down and muttered: "It's done."
Wild Blade's eyes opened and asked excitedly: "Are we about to start now?"
Luo Tian sat down and said: "Not yet, we still need to wait another 2 hours."
"Wasting this lord's time? Brat, I really can't help start looking down on you." scolded Wild Blade.
Luo Tian was too lazy to bother with him. He examined the locations of all the demon cores before clicking his tongue and saying: "I've been using up the demon cores too quickly. A single instance and I've already used a few thousand of them. If this happens a few more times, I'm going to turn into poor wretch. An Chunchun's mother will be auctioned off at the Dao Shang Alliance auction house so if he had no more money…
"If I knew this was going to happen, I would've grabbed a few more."
"Back then, I shouldn't have been embarrassed about it."
Back then below the demon core mountain, Luo Tian was not embarrassed at all. He even specifically picked all the attributed cores as well. When he couldn't fit them inside his spatial plaques anymore, he even grabbed a dozen more to stuff in his pockets. He showed no signs of embarrassment and was no different than a bandit.
After killing the Jiao Dragon, leaving some for Song Yannan, giving some away to Xuan Yuanyi and company, and now arranging this huge array, Luo Tian had consumed a lot of cores.
He had to engrave this array.
And if he wanted it to be powerful, he had to use a lot of demon cores.
These demon cores were a onetime use item. Once the array activates, the energy inside the demon cores will instantly explode out creating a powerful force to annihilate everything within.
The power of an array was really strong.
But setting it up required a huge consumption of demon cores, profound energy, and one's mental energy.
After not resting for over ten days and now under a highly concentrated mental state for four hours, the fatigue Luo Tian was feeling had no words to describe it. After sitting on the ground, he had already slumped over asleep a few minutes later.
Wild Blade was perplexed by this.
After hearing Luo Tian's faint snoring sound, he didn't continue calling out to him and muttered: "This kid has a tough life. "
Fifteen years old, Profound King realm cultivation.
Apart from Murong Wanjian who has the bloodline of a true dragon, there weren't many people capable of this.
Luo Tian's cultivation was all gained within one year's time. Even if it was Murong Wanjian with his true dragon bloodline, most likely it would be impossible for him to accomplish this feat.
Wild Blade was clear on how hardworking and how desperately Luo Tian trained. There were many times he wanted to tell Luo Tian to stop and take a break, but the existence of Murong Wanjian was like an invisible mountain crushing him to the point that he could barely breathe. That's why Luo Tian could only clench his teeth and continue training. Even if he was clenching so hard to the point of his teeth started bleeding, he still had to hold on and continue to make more breakthroughs. He had to narrow the gap between his cultivation and Murong Wanjian's.
It was truly filled with hardship.
Wild Blade then muttered to himself: "One day, you will surely surpass everyone here!"
Time flew by and 2 hours had already passed.
Luo Tian's eyes slowly opened. It was like an ingrained setting in his brain that automatically woke him up at a certain time. After rubbing his eyes, stretching his waist, and performing a few deep breaths, Luo Tian said: "Wild Blade, it's time to start now."
Wild Blade coldly said: "This lord is too lazy to bother with you."
Luo Tian chuckled and said: "This time it's for real."
Luo Tian roared internally: "Level 3 Berserk!"
Eight times the attributes exploded out and Luo Tian's aura drastically changed.
Seeing all the specters still asleep surrounded by demon cores, Luo Tian ferociously grinned before saying: "You bunch of f*ckers are about to die soon, heh heh…"
Luo Tian shot off and rushed into the midst of the specters.
Wild Blade became shocked as he shouted: "Brat, you don't wish to live anymore? If you rush in like that, you're going to wake up all the specters! With your current strength, there's no way you can even deal with three deceased souls of the devil race at the same time, yet you…"
"This time we're really finished."
As Wild Blade watched Luo Tian wake up all the devil race specters, his expression sank as he muttered: "You wanted to let me know how fierce you were? Now I finally know… that you're a goddamn lunatic! This is pissing off this great lord!"
The devil race specters looked similar to League of Legends Nocturne, except they were all in white.
One specter at a time awoke.
They started wailing like a ghost.
"Human… a despicable human…"
"Kill, kill, kill! Kill all those despicable humans!"
Their screams were ear piercing, and their tones carried a deep hatred filled with killing intent. Their voices also pierced into Luo Tian's sea of consciousness, causing huge waves to roil about. Luo Tian's mind and internal organs were also suffering from intense pain.
Tens of thousands of Profound King monsters all exerting their oppressive pressure on you.
What kind of existences were they?
This type of attack could directly make a person explode from pressure.
No matter how strong Luo Tian's sea of consciousness was, he was still only at the Profound King 1st rank.
Uncomfortable. Extremely uncomfortable.
Blood seeped out of the corner of Luo Tian's mouth. His face became pale white yet he still continued rushing through to awaken all the surrounding specter monsters. Following behind him was a dense pack of specters who were throwing out various powerful devil race attacks that practically covered the sky.
Even Wild Blade was shocked into a blank state.
"You've played it too big this time kid. I'm afraid you're losing your life here today." Wild Blade then started laughing out loud like crazy. Contained within his laughter was a trace of fear and a trace of unwillingness.
Wild Blade started laughing crazily after thinking of what had happened these past few days.
"Brat, this lord has been quite happy these few days, so thank you."
"You are truly wildly unrestrained and full of guts, exactly to the likes of this lord. Hahaha… If there's a next life, this lord would like to be brothers with you!"
Luo Tian smiled in a gloomy manner and said: "There's no need for next life, it's already fine for this one."
His right palm heavily slammed down.
He then roared out: "Ancient Dragon Execution Array, activate for me!"
