Something was gnawing away at their arteries and blood vessels swiftly and irresistibly, separating their heads from their bodies.
Not a word could be uttered before they were completely dead.
Purple Abyss Vine quickly devoured the 2 of them, leaving no clothes or hair behind.
However, Hexi didn’t realize that when they died, 2 faint wisps of green smoke flew toward the roof and finally dissipated into the beams.
After Hexi cleaned up the 2, she looked at the beastkin who was struggling to get up from the ground.
The beastkin’s face was pale, but her expression was very calm. There was a trace of doubt and gratitude in her eyes, “Who are you? Why did you save me?”
Hexi narrowed her eyes and didn’t answer her, but she asked, “Just now on the altar, what was that person doing to you?”
Hexi’s question made the beastkin shudder and her expression became extremely panicked and frightened.
However, she quickly regained her composure and said in a hoarse voice, “I don’t know. I have never seen such vicious voodoo. All I know is that every time I go to the altar, the beastkin power in my beastkin essence pill will be drained and my vitality will also be lost. If I go through it one more time, I will definitely die.”
Hexi frowned. If Wu Qi is also sent to the altar, then the consequences…
She didn’t want to think about it. She just said to the beastkin, “I still have things to do here. You do your own thing and don’t ruin my plan!”. Hexi then quickly disappeared from the room.
The beastkin stretched out her hand to keep her, but in the blink of an eye, she couldn’t even capture her silhouette.
As the green smoke in the room disappeared without a trace, in a remote hut in the courtyard, a sullen and ugly man suddenly opened his eyes and said with a cold smile, “Where did the little bug come from? How dare you act wildly here. Hehe, do you think you can leave this place after coming in?”
As soon as the ugly man finished speaking, he flickered and disappeared.
At the same time, no one noticed that at the barrier between the Bijing Pavilion and this mysterious dark courtyard, a man dressed in black with a black mask stepped in and intruded into the boundary of the dark courtyard.
Hexi walked very carefully all the way and was mentally prepared.
But seeing the scenes here, she was still in a state of turmoil, unable to calm herself down.
This palace looked very similar to the Bijing Pavilion from the outside, but it was a huge prison inside. It was divided into the upper, middle and basement floors.
In this prison, almost every room had a beastkin or a magical beast of rank 7 or higher.
A few more rooms were locked with martial artists who were in a coma.
Those magical beasts and martial artists aside, those beastkins had almost all just morphed.
They were either ignorant children about the same age as Xiao Li or boys and girls like that female beastkin or Wu Qi.
These beastkins were all badly tortured. Some of the children beastkins looked aged on their brows and skin despite their tiny figures. Their bodies were morphing between human form and beastkin form.
They seemed desperate to maintain their beastkin form, but they would be forced back to human form because of the pain.
The constant crying and wailing in his ears made Xiao Li more and more panicked and nervous.
She didn’t know how her brother would be treated.
What surprised Hexi was that she had searched almost every room in the palace, but she still could not find Wu Qi.
Xiao Li’s sensing could only determine the general direction, but she couldn’t tell the specific location.
