Chapter 46 – Like Mad, Like A Demon
Deep into the night, there was a slight chill in the air.
Standing in front of the towering Ghostly Mountain Range, Luo Tian felt extremely tiny when compared to it.
He was completely pissed off at what happened tonight.
He never expected that Luo Jianshan would be so shameless that he would detain Li Xue’er and Feng Lei as hostages. What he hated the most in his life were people messing with those close to him.
In his own words: You can mess with me but don’t touch my friends or family.
If you dare mess with my friends and family, I will disregard everything and f*ck your eighteen generations!
Humans needed flames of passion!
This flame of passion had kindled when Luo Tian transmigrated to this world. Now the flame had spread through all his internal organs, and before long it will arrive at his mind and sea of consciousness.
By that time, heh heh...
Luo Tian calmed his thoughts by performing three deep breaths. He then looked towards the Jade Mountain City and said in a low tone: “Just wait for me!”
Those four words were filled with different meanings!
After that, Luo Tian stepped onto the Ghostly Mountain Range. His presence awakened birds and insect alike, causing the outer periphery to become restless.
The feast of the hunt had begun!
His original intention on training in the Ghostly Mountain Range was in order to go against the rank 4 demonic beast in eight days time. But now it was different...
Apart from challenging the rank 4 demonic beast, the most important point was to kill the last boss.
He didn’t want to let things drag on anymore.
This last boss had to be removed or else next time, it wouldn’t be as simple as detaining his people.
Luo Tian wasn’t someone that will let harm come to those close to him. If he finds out, he will definitely eliminate them!
The night was as dark as ink where one could not see the slightest light while within the forest.
Someone at the Profound Pupil 9th rank wouldn’t be able to see more than several meters ahead of them. Wanting to find demonic beasts under these conditions was quite difficult indeed.
Half an hour later...
Luo Tian was only able to kill a few rank 1 demonic beasts in his travels. His eyebrows unconsciously turned to a frown, “This won’t do; if I can’t find any demonic beasts, am I supposed to start killing air?”
After thinking for a while...
Luo Tian’s eyebrows sank as he roared out. His body released an aura in an unbridled manner causing overbearing, domineering and extreme arrogance to blast out into the surrounding forest.
As his aura billowed out, more than ten pairs of cold green eyes were staring at him in less than half a minute.
Demonic beasts were just like humans, they didn’t like to be provoked.
Luo Tian’s aura made them fly into a rage. They swarmed in towards him and once they realized it was a human, their eyes all changed like they had been starving for a long time.
Drool started plopping on the floor as one of them pawed the ground. Its throat gave off a low terrifying growl as if to warn the others to back off and that Luo Tian was its prey.
In an instant...
That rank 2 Scarlet Flamed Wolf began to howl.
Luo Tian’s lips curved into a sneer and roared out: “Perfect timing!”
Luo Tian faintly smiled as he brought out a spatial plaque, “It’s time for me to test out those iron monsters.”
“Bumblebee, you’re up!”
A sound of metals rubbing against each other was heard. A super terrifying looking iron beast four meters tall and fully in black appeared. Luo Tian made a thought and Bumblebee’s eyes glowed before blocking in front of him. Bumblebee watched as the Scarlet Flamed Wolf had already launched itself into the air. It looked at the wolf with a hint of disdain as if it was looking at a tiny ant in front of it.
The right arm rose up and heavily slapped down.
The Scarlet Flamed Wolf was smashed down in mid air; its body deeply entrenched into the ground. Its four limbs flailed out while its head and tail was in a straight alignment as if it was a printing cast.
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for killing a Scarlet Flamed Wolf. You have gained 350 experience points, and 35 profound energy…”
“Oh shit, instakill!”
Luo Tian was internally shocked. Looking up at Bumblebee, waves of emotion was felt in his heart. He already knew that a level 3 puppet soldier would be powerful, but he didn’t expect its power to be that great. A rank 2 demonic beast died from a slap, and it looked even easier than slapping a fly to death. This...
That was the only word to describe what Luo Tian was feeling.
“Powerful, simply way too powerful!” Luo Tian almost jumped into the air in joy. The strength of a level 3 puppet soldier had exceeded his expectations.
This training period for him...
Luo Tian started to get excited.
“Luo Jianshan you damn old bastard, you just wait for this daddy!”
“I will definitely make you burst with loot!”
Luo Tian showed a ghastly smile.
Luo Tian went to pull up the Scarlet Flamed Wolf embedded inside the ground and cut its throat, letting the blood gush all over his own body. The amount of demonic beasts in the Ghostly Mountain Range was like stars in the sky, and this bloody scent was ideal to attract other demonic beasts. It was definitely more attractive than the scent that Luo Tian had on his own body.
A pungent bloody scent drifted into the surrounding air, and heart piercing roars from near and far started reverberating in the mountain forest.
All life forms in the surrounding area started becoming restless.
Those starving demonic beasts nearby couldn’t endure anymore and rushed out as if they were trying to snatch whatever they could!
Luo Tian had a savage smile on his face as a dozen or so demonic beasts descended onto him. In order to save time, he pulled out another spatial plaque and shouted: “Optimus Prime, head out!”
A huge iron monster seemed to have descended from the heavens and directly stomped a demonic beast into meat paste. It then dove into the pack of demonic beasts as if it was a metallic grim reaper.
At the same time...
Apart from controlling the two puppet soldiers with his mind, he personally pulled out the Azure Cloud Sword that exploded out from Zhou Hengran’s corpse previously and began killing as well.
Time was very precious to him at the moment.
Luo Tian didn’t want to waste a single moment. He was thinking of Luo Jianshan’s sinister words; he was thinking of Luo Xiaoshan’s unbridled verbal abuse; he was thinking of Luo Changshan’s unscrupulous clinging to a faction; he was thinking of Li Xue’er being detained because of him; he was thinking of all the bullying Feng Lei had suffered; and he was thinking of how all the people in the Jade Mountain City were waiting to see him as a joke. The emotional flames in his heart started burning even more vigorously.
A sword struck out at full power without any reserves for defense. This strike was like he didn’t care about his own life!
A single sword strike pierced through the skull of a demonic beast.
The system sounded off a sweet alert tone he loved hearing.
Luo Tian pulled out the sword; his body became illusory before once again stabbing out with all his strength.
A series of system alerts were heard making Luo Tian’s eardrums hurt, but he was still extremely excited about it.
A single person with two puppet soldiers was killing like mad and like a demon.
With the domineering aura of - If God blocks him, kill God. If Buddha blocks him, kill Buddha; the peace here was completely destroyed by Luo Tian.
As he moved forward, there would be roars, death, and blood spraying everywhere. The only part of Luo Tian’s body that wasn’t covered in blood was his eyes. The rest were caked in blood that had started to darken. More blood would then spray over him and start clotting, and the process would repeat itself. Eventually, Luo Tian looked like he was wearing an armor made up of blood that was quite terrifying to behold. It was like a demon had just crawled up from the depths of hell.
This continued to the morning, then to noon, then to evening. And then to the next morning...
Luo Tian was extremely tired by now.
If it weren’t for the sheer willpower supporting him, he could fall asleep just by lying on the ground.
As if afraid of wasting a single second or missing a single experience point, Luo Tian was trying to kill demonic beasts and level up with his life on the line. He had become completely insane!
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for leveling up. Your current level is Profound Master 1st rank!”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for leveling up. You have gained a martial skill from the system - Shadewind Steps!”
“Isn’t this the Desolate Era’s main character Ji Ning’s martial skill he learned in the early chapters? Hahaha…” Luo Tian’s heart was in ecstasy as he immediately opened the system interface to learn the skill. The new skill then appeared in his skill column area.
At that moment...
A hint of chilling aura shot out - it was killing intent!
This was a strong murderous killing intent!
Luo Tian’s lips arched into a cold sneer, “You damn dog thing, you finally can’t endure anymore huh?!”
