1224 Spider Queen
Including Lin Huang, all the 100 participants on the list were there around 8.30 a.m.
Lin Huang glanced through the participants and realized that all of the monsters which came in various sizes and forms only had imperial-level combat strength. There was not even a single demigod.
Theoretically, the restriction of this ruin should be virtual god-level, whereby anyone below virtual god-level could enter. The 100-participant quota that the Dragon Sovereign gave did not even have a demigod. Clearly, he thought demigods had drained their talent and were not worthy of being trained.
However, no matter whether they were imperial-level or demigod-level, they made no difference to Lin Huang now. The 99 participants and he were on a totally different level.
Although he had no competitors in the journey into the ruin this time, Lin Huang was pretty excited about the setup in the ruin. The more he learned about Qi Muxiong, the more he thought that the guy was not an ordinary demigod. He even suspected that Qi Muxiong was not a demigod at all.
A flirtatious voice pulled him back to reality as his thoughts flew around and he was evidently distracted. "Hey, is that Wu Fei?"
Lin Huang was stunned for a moment and he recalled that that was the name of the Thousand-Legged Centipede that he was disguised as. He turned his head immediately to look at the source of the voice.
A giant spider with 12 long legs was crawling toward him at a high speed.
Based on the Thousand-Legged Centipede's memory, Lin Huang soon found information about the spider. However, he became speechless after sifting through the portion of the information in his head.
"Didn't you say that you were going to leave the virtual zone and head to the great world?"
The Spider Queen was completely black with purple spots and thorns on her body. Her legs were hundreds of meters long. At that moment, her 16 black eyes glared at Lin Huang with melancholy.
This Spider Queen was the Thousand-Legged Centipede's old fling, and they had been lovers for close to a hundred years. However, when the Spider Queen asked to confirm their relationship all of a sudden, the Thousand-Legged Centipede backed out immediately because he knew that the Spider Queen would breed as soon as they confirmed their relationship and he would become her meal by then.
Lin Huang did not find it strange that the Spider Queen was attempting to breed with the Thousand-Legged Centipede. In the monster guide, he read that monsters of different types could reproduce together. There seemed to be countable creatures that practiced reproductive isolation in this world.
Clearly, reproductive isolation was out of the picture for the Thousand-Legged Centipede and the Spider Queen in this virtual zone.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
However, without reproductive isolation, the spider still insisted on devouring her husband. Lin Huang was speechless about that. The Thousand-Legged Centipede should not have been blamed for backing out.
Lin Huang's four bloody eyes rolled around and he quickly found himself an excuse when he saw the Spider Queen arrive before him.
"The application assessment on the Butterfly Sovereign's side took some time and it was only approved earlier. I was going to leave, but the Dragon Sovereign Palace informed me that they've assigned me a place in this ruin trial. I thought of waiting for a few days and only leaving when I'm done exploring the ruin."
The Queen Spider did not seem to suspect the Thousand-Legged Centipede, but she was still complaining, "So, why didn't you contact me these days?"
"Can't you see that I'm busy preparing for the trial?" Lin Huang came up with another excuse casually.
"You're going to the great world after the trial ends. We don't know when we'll meet again. How about we team up in this trial?" the Spider Queen suggested.
"Sure." Lin Huang hesitated for a moment hearing the suggestion but he agreed anyway. However, he began planning his next excuse to get away from her.
The Spider Queen held onto Lin Huang's front leg with her long leg happily upon hearing Lin Huang's agreement to team up. She was afraid that he might run away again.
Lin Huang looked far ahead, unable to bring himself to look upon the Spider Queen's 'beauty'.
With a human's sense of beauty, an insect that had been enlarged countless times would give one goosebumps just by looking at it. Although Lin Huang was not afraid, he truly could not appreciate it.
He peeked at the memory of the Thousand-Legged Centipede having intercourse with this Spider Queen. He could not unsee the image of the two giant insects intertwined together.
'Damn my curiosity!' Lin Huang felt goosebumps rise all over his body.
The Spider Queen next to him thought that Lin Huang experienced some reaction while tangling her front leg with his, so she felt shy. Lin Huang experienced another round of goosebumps even before the previous one subsided. He shook the Spider Queen's leg away.
Just when the Spider Queen was coming at him again, the Dragon Sovereign finally arrived.
"The Dragon Sovereign is here!" Lin Huang warned her through voice transmission.
Upon seeing the Dragon Sovereign, the Spider Queen dared not cross the line again. She maintained some distance from Lin Huang with her head down.
The rest of the monsters stopped talking and turned around to face the Dragon Sovereign with their heads down to show their respect.
Lin Huang also lowered his body. However, he was not showing his respect. Instead, he was afraid that the Dragon Sovereign might see through him.
The Dragon Sovereign glanced at the many participants beneath him quickly as soon as he arrived. He nodded in satisfaction after seeing that all 100 of them were present with zero absence. Clearly, he did not see through Lin Huang's disguise. He did not even stop and glimpse at Lin Huang.
Although the Disguise Card clearly stated that it could deceive true god-level powerhouses, Lin Huang was relieved that the Dragon Sovereign did not notice him.
The Dragon Sovereign only spoke slowly after taking a glance around, "I've organized over 200 searches in this ruin Miracle ever since I found it. However, nobody has found anything every year. Nobody remembers exactly what happened in this ruin, and even all the recording techniques are wiped automatically.
"Among the 100 powerhouses who are entering the ruin this year, more than half of you are seniors who've entered the ruin while a part of you are newbies who've never entered the ruin. I hope your search this time won't disappoint me. Bring me useful information!"
Although he said that, the Dragon Sovereign had no expectation. After all, none of the 200 or so searchers were successful. He had already gotten used to failure. However, he still had to say that as a courtesy to the participants.
After a simple speech, the Dragon Sovereign did not bother to speak further. He waved his hand directly and released ten Dragnet Spiders.
"I'm done talking. Go into the ruin now!"
The Dragnet Spiders spat ten threads out each as soon as the Dragon Sovereign commanded. Each of the threads looped around ten different monsters and pulled them into the black whirlpool respectively.
After the 100 participants were sent away, the Dragon Sovereign summoned another Dragnet Spider and leaped into the whirlpool with it.
