'Just a bunch of lower demons. ' Xiu’s voice was calm and indifferent to all that were in sight.
‘The lower demon's mind is no different from a wild beast’s. They only know to comply with their desire for food, without any intelligence at all.’ Coming from Xiu’s mouth, these terrible creatures from people’s mouths sounded just like ants.
'The level of the demons is not more pronounced than yours.The lower demons are like beasts. Although they’re the most aggressive, they are also the easiest to deal with, and the middle demons have a certain mind, so they will not act like lower demons. The demon you found before entering the mountains was a middle demon. They already know how to hide themselves and observe the enemy. They will not start until all the judgments have been taken. And the higher demons...’ Xiu paused for a bit.
'A higher demon's intelligence surpasses the average human’s wisdom, and their strength is comparable to that of experts of the human race in the later stage profession. They are free to transform into any human appearance. Once they hide in the crowd, you cannot find out their existence unless you’re someone in the later stage profession.'
In the midst of Xiu's explanation, a strange breath suddenly came from behind Shen Yanxiao.
‘Calmly wait and just observe.’ Shen Yanxiao was about to take an action, but Xiu was one step ahead in giving her instructions.
Thereupon, Shen Yanxiao just continued to stand on the tree, as if she didn’t sense anything.
That breath was getting closer, and Shen Yanxiao had been able to clearly feel the strong atmosphere in that moment. The next second, a strong, ice-cold breath advancing towards Shen Yanxiao finally came over. This breath with strong dark elements unexpectedly made Shen Yanxiao feel a chill all over her body.
"Where did the little fellow come from? To actually dare watch a show in here," a tone full of joking sounded from behind Shen Yanxiao. The moment Shen Yanxiao turned around, a white hand had shockingly affixed to her neck.
A handsome and somewhat unusually bewitching face was imprinted into Shen Yanxiao’s eyes. It was a fair and quite an unusual face, and those long, narrow eyes even turned out to be a pair of purple eyes. The juvenile looked to be nineteen years old, and on his mouth hung a creepy smile.
This person was very dangerous!
Shen Yanxiao’s heart was alarmed, but Xiu didn’t give out the next instructions, making Shen Yanxiao very puzzled.
The bewitching juvenile licked his lips. His greedy and abusive eyes gazed at Shen Yanxiao’s body from head to toe.
"You saw your own people being eaten alive by demons, yet incredibly, you aren’t surprised and frightened at all. Little fellow, is your courage that big, or you were just scared silly?" The bewitching juvenile was very curious of Shen Yanxiao’s calm appearance; it was as if his fingers that were hooked around her neck were doing nothing but just brushing away dust on her skin.
Staring at that pair of purple eyes, Shen Yanxiao almost had guessed the identity of this young man. The powerful suffocating momentum and the bewitching eyes were definitely things not a human being could have.
As Xiu had said, higher demons had the ability to turn into any human, and those purple eyes were one of the characteristics of demons.
She didn’t expect that she would actually encounter a powerful higher demon in the legend when she just wanted to sneak out to see what kind of existence demons were.
Shen Yanxiao didn’t really know if she should rejoice or mourn for herself instead.
Higher demons were powerful enough to confront Yun Qi at his peak. But her Archer and Warlock's strength had only reached the Intermediate level profession.
