Chapter 1039: The Giant Eight-eyed Demon
"Everyone watch out!"
Li Mu warned everyone with a serious look on his face as he approached the flesh and blood life form that was descending upon them.
A silver-colored spirit sword abruptly flashed into existence.
"Swoosh swoosh swoosh!"
In an instant, tens of thousands of sword beams cut into the bottom of the altar like a school of fishes.
A sharp, condescending aura emerged from Li Mu's body. Suddenly, he felt like the sharpest sword in the world capable of piercing through the blue sky in one hit.
Many Soul Altar experts shook as they stared at the torrent of sword beams in astonishment.
The sword beams had aligned themselves into strange formations and moved as agilely as fish. Every sword beam even had its own unique whistle.
It was as if tens of thousands of living beings were cheering together in response to the power of Li Mu's attack.
"His refined soul has joined with his sword will to become tens of thousands of sword beams. It is an incredibly high level of swordsmanship!"
Qin Lie closed his eyes and sensed Li Mu's attacks with his mind. He thought he could almost see Li Mu's refined soul literally riding the sword beams into the air.
When he probed the attack with his soul consciousness again, shock abruptly settled inside his mind.
As it turned out, every sword beam Li Mu conjured contained a different type of sword intent.
It meant that Li Mu had imbued at least ten thousand types of sword will into the attack!
When Qin Lie opened his eyes to stare at the sword beams in astonishment, he couldn't help but feel his respect for Li Mu grow by the second.
Li Mu normally didn't show off his skills, so Qin Lie didn't know that he was capable of tens of thousands of sword arts until now. He even injected every sword beam he unleashed with a sword art.
This ability was practically unparalleled in swordsmanship!
Tens of thousands of blue sword beams abruptly blossomed between Li Mu and the giant flesh and blood demon. They penetrated into the demon's blue-colored bone blades all the way to the bottom.
Blue blood fell from the sky like a poignant rain of blue.
A roar that came directly from the soul erupted from the giant flesh and blood demon. It was so powerful that many Soul Altar experts turned pale white in response.
Holes suddenly began to appear on the giant demon's flesh-made body.
One by one, blue balls appeared from inside the holes.
These light balls looked exactly the same as the orb Seine stole back then.
A total of eight light balls could be counted on the giant flesh and blood demon's body.
They were its eyes.
The giant demon's eight eyes turned to stare at the invading Soul Altar experts coldly.
Qin Lie felt cold all over under its chilling stare. His God Race bloodline actually started boiling on its own.
The activation of his bloodline caused his strength to multiply and his hair to turn as red as blood.
The giant eight-eyed demon suddenly focused all of its attention on him. Their demonic eyes sparkled with the light of excitement.
"Qin Lie! It's targeting you!" Li Mu yelled.
"Get out of here right now!" Duan Qianjie also said.
Qin Lie's expression darkened as he pressed a hand to the silver moon mark on his shoulder, yelling, "Come out!"
Many crescent moons flew out of his shoulder and radiated with pure and cool moonlight.
The clean moonlight washed against Qin Lie's body gently like water ripples.
"You Ye! Do you know what this eight-eyed demon is?!" he asked with his soul.
The nine crescent moons abruptly condensed and transformed into nine translucent water beads. Every water bead contained a tiny, blurry figure of You Ye.
The bright, silver moonlight shone onto the giant eight-eyed demon's bloated body. It was You Ye's unique way to probe the demon.
"I've never seen such a demon in my life!" You Ye responded.
Qin Lie was shocked.
The realm You Ye used to live in was an entire galaxy away from Spirit Realm. He was so knowledgeable and experienced that he knew about the Soul Race, the shadow beings and many secrets of the galaxy.
But even he with his breadth of view had no idea what the bizarre flesh and blood lifeform before them was. It made Qin Lie grew more and more anxious.
It was because all living beings were instinctively afraid of the unknown.
It meant that they had no idea how the creature operated, what its weaknesses were, how to attack it or how deadly it was.
This giant eight-eyed demon was unknown to all of them. That was why everyone was feeling some degree of anxiety.
"Whoosh whoosh whoosh!"
Qin Lie's figure abruptly appeared in the eyes of the giant eight-eyed demon.
The young man shuddered greatly in response.
Suddenly, the many layers of moonlight Qin Lie had wrapped himself in exploded into many silvery sparks.
His clothes also turned to dust in an instant.
Everyone could see veins bulging sinisterly against Qin Lie's naked skin and wriggling about like spirit snakes.
Terrifying halos of heat on Qin Lie's skin because his blood had boiled up like lava.
A blurry, demonic figure slowly manifested across Qin Lie's chest.
Anyone who looked closer would realize that it was a miniature version of the giant eight-eyed demon!
"The demon's soul has permeated into Qin Lie's soul!" Qi Yang screamed.
"Attack the demon's main body!" Duan Qianjie yelled fiercely.
The moment he said this, a spatial blade appeared on each of his fingers.
The ten spatial blades aligned themselves into a cross shape. The center of the cross brimmed with terrifying energy that could tear apart the flesh of all living beings.
Tang Beidou also charged towards the giant eight-eyed demon while roaring angrily as his surroundings became enveloped in a sea of fire.
Qi Yang, Feng Yi, and many Soul Altar experts hurriedly fired off their own spirit arts and spirit artifacts when they saw Duan Qianjie, Li Mu and Tang Beidou charging.
Everyone charged towards the giant eight-eyed demon in unison.
The giant eight-eyed demon abruptly howled.
A dozen or so eastern barbarians flew down from the giant demon's body at once.
These eastern barbarians were all Soul Altar experts.
Moreover, a strange, inhuman blue light gleamed deep within their pupils. The unusual activity of a Soul Altar that was about to explode suddenly appeared from their bodies.
Even Seine's eyes were glowing blue as his physical body threatened to tear apart.
He looked like he was literally about to explode into pieces.
"Watch out! Don't get close to them!" Li Mu yelled.
The martial practitioners that were just about to engage the giant eight-eyed demon in combat paled in fright when they noticed the eastern barbarians' physical changes.
Everyone forcefully came to a stop in unison.
"Bang! Bang! Bang!"
Three Soul Altar eastern barbarians abruptly burst apart. The explosion covered a large area.
The giant eight-eyed demon seized the opportunity to pass through the rain of exploding flesh and appear right in front of the panicking Land of Chaos Soul Altar experts.
Many bone blades that were at least dozens of meters long slashed against the martial practitioners and drew even more blood.
Yu Lingwei, Feng Yi, and Tang Beidou were all bleeding profusely after they were slashed multiple times by the demon.
Everyone was screaming and pulling away frantically.
Even Li Mu and Duan Qianjie were only able to cut a few bone blades into pieces before an even greater number of bone blades forced them to retreat.
They had no choice but to avoid the torrent of slashes for now and move as far away from the giant eight-eyed demon as possible.
"How is Qin Lie?"
Everyone subconsciously looked at Qin Lie to learn how he was doing after they pulled away from the giant eight-eyed demon.
By now, the mini demonic figure had manifested in full in front of Qin Lie's chest.
The mini eight-eyed demon clung onto Qin Lie's body like an octopus and plunged its sharp bone blades into Qin Lie's bulging veins.
The bone blades turned into suckers that seemed intent on sucking Qin Lie's refined blood dry.
"Its aiming for Qin Lie's refined blood!" Li Mu's expression changed greatly.
Qin Lie was the only person here who possessed the God Race's bloodline.
This unknown lifeform had targeted the weakest Qin Lie first because it obviously noticed how special his blood really was.
It obviously wanted to claim Qin Lie's God Race blood for itself!
Everyone was shocked to find the eight-eyed demon draining Qin Lie's blood at a rapid pace the moment they moved away from the main body and looked at Qin Lie.
Qin Lie raised his head and roared. It was a mad and violent roar that bespoke his fury and indignation.
His blood continued to burn like molten lava. Divine characters sparkled above the liquid like lightning.
As his blood continued to disappear, Qin Lie suddenly felt so weak and powerless that his mind was telling him to close his eyes and sleep forever.
Suddenly, blood flowed out of the corner of Qin Lie's two eyes. It was as if this was the moment he turned completely mad.
The stubbornness and brutality that was imprinted his blood manifested in full and turned him into a crazed animal.
The young man suddenly lowered his head and bit the eight-eyed demon clinging to his chest with everything he got. He was trying to bite through its skin.
A tinge of blue abruptly appeared at the corner of his mouth.
—It was none other than the eight-eyed demon's blood!
Throwing all caution to the wind, Qin Lie began to gulp down the eight-eyed demon's blue blood. He didn't care if this blood would kill him.
The moment he took his first gulp of the eight-eyed demon's blood, the giant demon in the air suddenly trembled fiercely.
The deep, blue light in the eight eyes of the giant demon started to grow dim at an extraordinary rate.
No one could hide their astonishment as they watched.
Right now, the giant eight-eyed demon was hovering right above Qin Lie's head.
A miniature version of the demon was clinging onto the naked Qin Lie and taking in Qin Lie's blood using the suckers it grew on its bone blades.
Meanwhile, Qin Lie himself was feasting on the eight-eyed demon's blood.
The human and the unknown lifeform were in a mad race to suck the other being's blood dry first.
Two powerful and erratic heartbeats could be heard from Qin Lie's chest.
The Soul Altar experts didn't know that Qin Lie's hearts were working way past their normal capacity.
The moment the blue blood entered the young man's innards, they became one with Qin Lie's blood.
While his bloodline was merging with the blue blood, countless deep blue lines began to take root inside his bloodline to form a complicated blood pattern.
Inside Qin Lie's consciousness, the young man's True Soul was enveloped by a layer of blue light. The deep blue beams sparkled and intersected with one another continuously as if it was trying to imprint a certain secret of the bloodline.
