731 Arctic Dragons
"The monster is so annoying! I'm going to have to kill it to make me feel good!" Seeing that the Frostyape Corpse had died, the snow giant then recalled The Book of Sorcerer Dao.
"You've almost used up the power in your body. Let's take a break before we proceed to our next destination." Zhu Xing suggested. He then walked slowly toward the Frostyape Corpse's territory and lowered his head to look at the pit Lin Huang made. He returned after a moment, and although he was deep in thought, he did not say anything.
The snow giant sat cross-legged, and after swallowing an energy crystal, it began restoring the energy in its body.
Soon, an hour passed, and the snow giant opened its eyes to say to Zhu Xing, "Let's go."
"How much power have you restored?" Zhu Xing asked.
"About 30% of my power has been restored. Even if we encounter a monster like the Frostyape Corpse, I'll have enough power to handle it." The snow giant answered.
"30%..." Zhu Xing frowned. He vaguely felt that restoring only 30% of its total power might not be enough.
"Quickly set the next location and stop wasting time!" the snow giant urged, "There are only a few hours left until the deadline set by the Union Government."
"Alright…" Zhu Xing had to compromise with it after he put some thought to the deadline set by the Union Government.
After spending about 10 minutes to acquire Lin Huang's position, the snow giant then summoned a Dimensional Whirlpool.
As they entered the Dimensional Whirlpool, both of them wore a serious look because their next destination was a lair of the Arctic Dragon.
As both of them arrived, a few of the dragons shot a deadly stare in their direction.
Obviously, Lin Huang was the one who set them up.
Lin Huang quickly made a detour as he passed by the Arctic Dragon lair earlier. He never knew that the place would be so useful to him now.
"There is more than one Arctic Dragon… Is it because we didn't look at the almanac today?" The snow giant was speechless.
"Don't you know that? We've been tricked." Zhu Xing could confirm that this encounter was not accidental at all.
"We've been tricked?" The snow giant could not understand why.
"Yes. If I'm not mistaken, that person set us up at the beginning." Zhu Xing could guess that Lin Huang was the one who did it. He dared not look down on him at all as he managed to grab the Sorcerer Goddess' inheritance.
"Do you mean that he's been fooling us all the while? Did he purposely lure us to the Frostyape Corpse's territory and the Arctic Dragon's lair?" After being reminded by Zhu Xing, it finally dawned on the snow giant.
"Yes, you're right. I think he's probably monitoring us with some kind of skill. That's why he managed to act before us." Zhu Xin made another guess.
"Let's discuss this later. Our main concern now is to overcome the danger before us," the snow giant whispered. Soon, they ended their conversation because it was not the right time to discuss the topic. Surrounded by a few Arctic Dragons, even the demigod snow giant felt like they were in trouble.
"There are six of them. Are you capable of fighting them?" Seeing the Arctic Dragons approach them, Zhu Xing asked.
"Yes, when I have full power but now, I'm… Let's run." Despite the snow giant was reluctant to flee, still, it decided to escape after thinking of it carefully.
It seemed like the few of the Arctic Dragons opposite them had lost interest in the both of them after sizing them up.
After secretly communicating with each other, the Arctic Dragons opened their mouth wide and spat frost at the both of them.
At this moment, the snow giant grabbed Zhu Xing as it transformed into lightning to flee as the frost spread around them.
Seeing the snow giant's attempt to escape, the six Arctic Dragons fluttered their wings and chased after them.
Thousands of meters away, Lin Huang and Bloody could clearly see what just happened.
"It seemed like the demigod isn't unconquerable after all. They're being chased by the six Arctic Dragons as well." Lin Huang grinned.
"If his strength is fully recovered, it won't be difficult for it to kill the six Arctic Dragons if it wanted to. However, only about 30% of its power is in its body. It's definitely not a wise choice to fight them head-on." Bloody felt that retreat was a better option for the snow giant. "They aren't stupid. Encountering two monster attacks in a row, they must've known that we're the one who's behind it all. Perhaps, we can't do this anymore since they'll be prepared for it."
Despite not being able to hear the conversation between Zhu Xing and the snow giant, Bloody could roughly guess that their plan had been revealed.
"Naturally, that'll happen eventually. It's just a matter of time." Everything was within Lin Huang's expectation.
"What's your next plan?" Bloody asked.
"I still have a gift for them. I wonder if they can take it." Lin Huang laughed like an evil maniac.
Bloody was stunned. Soon, a thought flashed through its mind as it asked, "Do you mean... that?"
"Yes, I do." Lin Huang smiled, nodding his head.
"That's too dangerous. If we're not careful enough, we might get involved as well," Bloody said fearfully.
"It'll be fine. The thing is related to Wu Mo. Since I have Wu Mo's inheritance as well as the Sorcerer Goddess blood, it's less likely that I'll attack me. However, I'll send you back into your card form before we go. It probably won't be a problem." Lin Huang was firm on his decision. "After this, if they manage to survive, I don't think they'll have the guts to mess with me anymore…"
"The probability of survival is low. You have to be careful as well. Although you have the Sorcerer Goddess blood, safety is not certain, especially since so many years had passed. We don't know if it still remembers Wu Mo's aura." Bloody reminded Lin Huang worriedly.
"I'll be careful. If something feels off, I'll flee immediately." Lin Huang smiled, nodding his head.
After a short while, he saw that the Arctic Dragons had caught up with Zhu Xing and the snow giant from the monitoring screen. Their battle had begun.
After about 1.5 hours, the snow giant and Zhu Xing finally killed the six Arctic Dragons together but they had almost used up all of their strength.
After resting for about two hours, the sky began to brighten. They were now ready to take Lin Huang on again.
