Blue Lake Mountain Range.
The location of the treasure.
Krobelus was in extreme irritation.
It had been 4 full hours. Apart from the few gems discovered earlier, she did not find anything. Moreover, she was currently in a terrifying crisis. If it were not for her Demon Overlord-level strength and the full body crystal jade armor she was wearing which protected her head and body, the explosion of the inscription just now was enough for her to be fatally and seriously injured.
However, this beloved set of full body crystal jade armor was severely damaged in the continuous bombardment. Cracks appeared in several places. Damn it! This is a very, very, very expensive magic armor!
No doubt, the main reason for the severe damage was caused by Ms. Emerald Dragon’s failure in Dragon Inscription knowledge. She just ran into many dangers that could otherwise be clearly avoided or cracked.
By now, Krobelus finally felt it faintly. These inscriptions and magic circle traps seem to be controlled secretly. This treasure is simply a trap.
That damn Diak! Damn undead magician!
The beautiful eyes behind the cracked visor flashed a furious light. Little Betty, you have to calm down. Don’t you have the mutated emerald dragons’ [Eyes of the Heart]? You must fully focus to feel the enemy’s location, then tear him into pieces!
Ms. Emerald Dragon took a deep breath, and she entered a special state. Her sense of feeling was fully expanded to sense abnormal fluctuations nearby.
Finally, she vaguely felt a figure in a certain corner. That’s right, it is this cunning guy that caused my new clothes to be torn and my crystal jade armor to be damaged too… Also, I almost died! I must not let him go!
Krobelus was determined. She completely ignored the changing scenes around her and the impact of the inscription burst. She unleashed all her strength to rush straight toward the direction sensed by the [Eyes of the Heart]. Although she was almost teleported out several times, she forcefully rushed all the way through based on her Demon Overlord-level tyrannical power. The opponent was very cunning. He was changing positions continuously, but his power seemed to be inferior. In addition to the miraculous effect of the [Eyes of the Heart], he could never escape Ms. Emerald Dragon’s senses.
Not long after, she was quite close to her target.
When Krobelus screamed, the sky was filled with shining green light, and the enemy was instantly wrapped in it. This was the emerald dragon’s expertise in the water and poison element power. Krobelus attacked with [Toxic Tooth] hatefully. She had already used all her strength. Even a metal would be instantly turned into smoke with this toxin.
The man couldn’t dodge. He screamed as he was poisoned. He suddenly collapsed on the ground. Just as Krobelus approached, she felt that the entire sky seemed to have an extra layer of dark green color. The surrounding scenery began to twist as if some kind of abnormal change occurred in the space.
The “corpse” that fell to the ground suddenly rose violently, and he punched toward her chest. Ms. Emerald Dragon was taken aback, but she was still able to react. She blocked the punch with swift movements.
The moment the 2 touched, Krobelus felt a high heat flowing through the crystal jade armor on her arm into her body. She actually started to heat up like a fire— Spreading across objects… Poison!
Krobelus suddenly felt dizzy. She couldn’t help but to be shocked. With my poisonous physique, I am still affected by this poison. Moreover, judging from the symptoms, the toxicity is extremely strong!
As a dignified emerald dragon, I have been proficient at using poison all my life, but I am poisoned by someone today? If this news goes out, I’m afraid those dragons would laugh ridiculously at me!
This man has a strange attire. He is wearing a torn cloak and a mask. Obviously, the [Toxic Tooth] just now has no effect on him. Even his clothes are a little corroded only.
Although Krobelus was poisoned, her body was quite resistant to the poison. She did not lose her combat power because of this. The power of the water element suddenly evaporated from her hands like mist. She blasted out with all her strength.
However, the opponent’s combat experience was extremely rich. Before she could exert any strength, he quickly withdrew. This gave her a suffocating feeling because her power could not be put into use. Then, her dizziness became stronger and stronger, and her power seemed to be weakened.
Krobelus keenly felt that this effect was not only the power of the poison itself, but also the effect of the territory. Her whole body was full of blue light. She knelt on one knee, and she punched the ground.
In the blink of an eye, with Krobelus as the center, a circle of blue ice crystals spread rapidly. A certain intangible force that distorted the vision in the original space was frozen into a tangible object. Krobelus suddenly felt that the poison in her body had weakened a lot. She transferred her strength to her fist and shook. The entire dark green space and the surrounding ground were actually shattered. A vast semicircular pit appeared as if a meteorite fell from the sky.
The man in the cloak staggered back a few steps. Before he stood firm, his feet were already entangled with ice crystals, and he was frozen in place. He was unable to move for a while.
Krobelus’s breathing was a bit short behind the visor. Although the opponent’s territory had been cracked, she was still unable to resolve the poison. I didn’t expect that there is even such a poison and poison cultivator in the Demon Realm!
The man said, “Who are you? Why are you here to snatch my treasure?”
The man in this cloak was naturally Paglio. Unlike Krobelus who wore full body armor including a hood and visor to protect herself, the reason the poison dragon wore the cloak was that he killed Ranieri, the man of Ms. Emerald Dragon. In order to prevent being recognized by the enemy’s widow, he deliberately concealed his true face.
At present, due to the seal problem, his power had always been stuck at the peak of the Demon Emperor. He exhausted all traps and tactics, but he still failed to suppress this opponent of the early stage Demon Emperor, so the cunning poison dragon immediately asked this sentence. He intended to buy more time.
“Treasure?” Krobelus’s eyes glowed a little, but she would not forget the poison crisis in her body. She looked doubtful, “Who are you? Why are you attacking me?”
“My name is… Jacob. This is the treasure that I discovered first, so naturally I won’t allow others to snatch it! Even if you are stronger than me, you won’t get anything as long as I explode the trap at the entrance!”
“Is there really a treasure?” Krobelus rolled her eyes, and she temporarily put away her murderous intent, “It looks like you are also an insider. According to the rules, finders keepers.
As long as you get rid of the poison in my body, I can let you go. We can discover the treasure together.”
If there really is a treasure, I won’t evenly divide it with this weak person. When the time comes, I can barely spare his life. It can be considered a little compensation for finding the treasure. However, the emerald dragon also knew that the poison in her body was not trivial. It must be removed as soon as possible.
Paglio naturally knew what she was thinking. Furthermore, the treasure was just a cover, so he hesitated at the moment, “If I get rid of your poison, you will surely kill me. I’m not that stupid.”
Ms. Emerald Dragon raised her hand without thinking, “I can swear by the name Nero. If I break my promise, I will die tragically!”
“Nero? Your name?” Paglio narrowed his eyes. It seems that I have really encountered a “peer”. This Krobelus actually knows my tactic too.
Just when the 2 of them pretended to comply with ulterior motives in their mind, an anxious voice sounded, “Paglio, where are you?”
The voice was from Chen Rui. When he saw that the “treasure” of the Blue Lake Mountain Range was ruined so badly, he was worried about the safety of the poison dragon, so he yelled immediately.
This scream didn’t matter. Behind the visor and in the cloak, Ms. Emerald Dragon and Master Poison Dragon changed their facial expression at the same time.
“Paglio?” Krobelus was stunned. The name of an enemy suddenly appeared in her mind. The poison in my body… If it isn’t the poison from that enemy, how could I not be able to restrain it myself?
No, that enemy’s strength should be the peak of Demon Overlord. Why this guy…
No matter what, I shall catch him back first to interrogate further!
Paglio knew that the other party was already suspicious, and she even saw through his true identity. He immediately charged his remaining energy and stomped on the ground with full strength. The ice crystals under his feet suddenly shattered. He escaped and then fled toward Chen Rui’s voice.
This escape further confirmed the suspicion in Krobelus’ heart. She immediately seemed vengeful. She couldn’t be bothered about the poison. White mist immediately released from her body. She stomped her feet and chased the poison dragon amidst the violent shouts.
Paglio seemed to have eyes behind him. At a turning point, he suddenly changed his position. At the same time, with a wave of his hand, a cluster of dark green mist wrapped around Krobelus. This cluster of mist was Paglio’s strongest poison. Even though Krobelus had reached the Demon Overlord level, she would inevitably die once she was invaded by the poison.
Unexpectedly, Krobelus was determined to kill him, so she actually didn’t evade. Being wrapped in the poisonous mist, she punched Paglio’s back with all her strength. Paglio turned with all his strength, but he was still hit by the remaining force. He groaned, and his whole body flew out. He fell flat on his face from a distance, and he couldn’t get up for a while.
There was a dark green layer on Krobelus’ face. The crystal jade armor on her body was shattered by the poison and dropped to the ground. Fortunately, her short shirt inside was specially made according to her poison physique, so it was not corroded at the moment.
Ms. Emerald Dragon walked a few steps staggeringly. She tried to step forward to kill her enemy, but she couldn’t hold it finally. She panted with her hands on her knees. The poison just now had just started to disperse throughout her body.
“Paglio!” Chen Rui rushed over as he heard the sound. He just happened to witness this scene, and he quickly stepped forward to help the poison dragon.
“Hehe, I’m fine. I just broke a few bones. This woman has been poisoned by me. Even if she is a Demon Overlord, she won’t live long…”
“Die!” Krobelus gritted her teeth. She straightened up again, and she rushed toward Paglio.
Paglio was very clear of the power of his toxins. He couldn’t help but to feel surprised when he saw Ms. Emerald Dragon rushing over desperately without bothering the spreading of the poison, “Oh no, run! This woman is crazy. She is going all out!”
“Stop it!” Chen Rui yelled. The emerald dragon is currently poisoned. She is facing a life threatening situation. No matter what, we know each other. I should try to turn this hostility into friendship.
As Chen Rui used Charles’ voice to shout, Krobelus was surprised. She raised her head and looked at Chen Rui, but it was an unfamiliar face.
The moment she raised her head, Paglio seemed taken aback.
“Whoever you are, get out of my way” Krobelus gritted her teeth as she asked, “I only want that guy’s life!”
Before Chen Rui spoke, Paglio actually spoke first, “Little… Little Betty?”
Not Betty, but Little Betty.
This private title shocked Krobelus. Her voice trembled slightly, “You… Jacob. No! Who are you…”
Paglio pulled off his cloak and mask, “It’s me! Don’t you remember?”
“You… Impossible!” Krobelus showed an unbelievable look, “Aren’t you killed?”
Chen Rui was also dumbfounded. Didn’t Paglio say that he didn’t know Krobelus? Judging from the situation, they seemed very close? Which drama is playing now?
Okay, wudefuq? Don’t tell me they were actually couple…..
