Annan went into deep thought.
Just as the symbol of Silver Sire is a silver coin, and the symbol of Mr. Ray is the sun.
The symbol of the Cup-holding Lady is the blood cup… a cup full of blood.
A cup symbol the represents the endless greed and thirst—
When the sun in the sky was altered into “Mouth of the Blood Cup,” the person’s blood was under its control. Sniffing any of it would render a person unconscious. What overflowed was excitement.
Is it a ritual that controls the vitality of a wide range of mortals?
But this could be considered a benefit to Annan’s plan.
He still had “fragments of the Wheel of Divine Transporter” left on him. He wasn’t sure when he would suddenly fall into a nightmare this week. If he were to pass out during a fight, that wouldn’t end up well.
But in the ritual area, Annan couldn’t fall into a nightmare.
“Since he has used this ritual, does it mean that his real ritual has just begun?”
Annan asked in a low voice, “Probably how long will they take?”
It is too early now.
If there is no [Mouth of the Blood Cup] in the sky, the sun shouldn’t rise at this time.
The players were offline at 10 p.m. last night.
Although their bodies wouldn’t get sleepy, it would take them eight hours to be online again.
In other words, even if the players got online punctually, Annan would have to be on his own for another half an hour.
“Are you worried that they haven’t woken up yet?” Salvatore hesitated slightly when he heard Annan’s words.
But he quickly shook his head, “At least Master Bishop should be awake.
“Look at Louis. The senior priests are all well-trained. They will try to get up before the sun rises every day. Even if they don’t sleep for a day or two, it won’t affect their state.”
That training should be dedicated to avoiding those regional nightmares. Annan nodded.
It was similar to the rules of the Freezing Water Port. There were nightmares in some places, and the key was the “location itself.” If you fall asleep at night, you will fall directly into a nightmare.
“I’m actually a little worried about you.” Annan asked in a low volume, “You only slept for two hours? Are you okay?”
“I have taken the Perception Mixture, a brain enhancement medicine. It will last until the night after another supplement in eight hours.”
Salvatore shook his head and said confidently, “Since I have such a curse, I must have been prepared.”
“Heh… You got quite the acting. Are you trying to save your reputation? Or to reassure your friends?”
At somewhere Annan couldn’t hear, the shadow let out a low and hoarse chuckle, “This Perception Mixture can’t last for so long, Salvatore. You are deceiving him.
“If you can’t hold it, or… if you feel that you are too weak and incompetent, you can close your eyes and faint at any time. I have been full of energy and have been preparing for this a long time.”
Salvatore ignored the shadow’s voice totally.
While the shadow was speaking, he also whispered to Annan, whereby his voice completely covered the shadow’s voice, “Be careful, since they want to use this ritual, it means that they have a powerful curse vessel in their hands.
“Then what they want to summon is probably not the Soul Eater. At least not just the Soul Eater…” A crippling chill crept upon Salvatore’s back before he could end his sentence.
At the next moment, the line that Annan had drawn on the ground with the silver-gray potion suddenly lighted up without warning!
They erupted into a scorching wall of fire, reaching a height of about 1 meter. The air above had become distorted.
At a distance of about 10 meters away, an illusory translucent spiritual body gradually emerged.
It was dressed in a long robe, was about 2.5 meters high. It had beautiful dark brown curly hair, and its face was densely packed with more than 20 pairs of eyes. A white halo shone atop her body. The body part below her collarbone melted under the swaying hollow robe.
“It’s the [Leer]!”
Salvatore issued a warning at the first moment, “Don’t look at her eyes. Close your eyes immediately!”
As Salvatore warned, he took out a bottle of white reagent from his arms.
After a mysterious chanting for a short while, Salvatore threw the reagent bottle high.
The next moment, an intense brilliance burst out of the reagent bottle.
The spirit body uttered a sharp scream.
It wasn’t scared… but irritated.
It seemed to be resisting something.
Annan had already closed his eyes when he was alerted. At the same time, he took out a few bottles of reagent Salvatore gave earlier.

Annan hesitated for a moment and didn’t take the [Frigid Cold Air].
Instead, he drank the other two bottles of medicine in one go.
The scorching “Blood Impulse Decoction” and the sour and cold “Keen Perception Mixture” flowed into the throat one after another.
Annan felt his heart pumping violently.
A clear sense of new power pulsated within his body.
He felt that his skin became a lot more sensitive, and he could sense the direction of the air around him. Furthermore, his limbs had also become flexible, as if his bones had become rubber.
But what was more remarkable was his suddenly hot skin, the muscles that tightened without warning, and the blue blood vessels that burst and throbbed all over the body.
Annan found it strange that he didn’t feel the “bloodthirsty” state in the description.
There was a burst of intense, irresistible excitement in his heart.
To put into explanation, it was the eagerness when the class learned that the winter vacation was approaching.
When the light faded, Annan opened his eyes.
Holding the kitchen knife in one hand and the hammer in the other, he rushed towards the tall spirit body!
