In a dangerous place with extraordinary power lost, anyone would become uneasy without the ability to fend for themselves. No matter how calm you are, you can’t feel at ease in your heart.
Almost as soon as Mo Xiaofei said that his power came back, Zixing tried to communicate with his Yin Greedy Wolf, but she ultimately failed. But her demon beast power had recovered a little bit.
She was initially seriously injured, but because of Windchaser’s rescue, she recovered some strength after recuperating for a few days. But the trace of demon beast power retrieved at this time was far from the time when she entered Yan Wuyue.
“Not fully recovered…” Mo Xiaofei shook his head quickly, “It’s about 10% at most. It’s strange.”
Zixing said, “Brother Mo since a part of the power can be restored, it means that there is a chance to recover all of it. Moreover, this also means that your power has not completely disappeared. The reason why the power is gone is probably that something suppresses it.”
Mo Xiaofei’s eyes lit up, “In other words, the power can be restored now because the things that suppressed me disappeared?”
Zixing was not sure, “It’s also possible that this thing becomes weaker.”
“Should we continue to probe Haru Narukami or leave first? Saburo Nagato’s condition is not good.” Mo Xiaofei quickly said, “Once he finds Nagato Munechika, Nagato Munechika will probably guess from Saburo Nagato’s reaction that he has been to the dungeon. Nagato Munechika might leave the dinner party. I have fought against Nagato Munechika many times. Even if I recover till this point, I am afraid I’m not his opponent.”
That’s a powerful and disgusting guy even though he is already at such an old age.
Zixing frowned at this moment, “Outside the dungeon, there seems to be movement. I felt a strange spiritual qi.”
Zixing’s senses had also become sharp because she had recovered a trace of demon beast power. Mo Xiaofei closed his eyes at this time. He used his full power to strengthen his hearing. The consciousness seemed to accelerate in an instant, and it surged to the path to head back.
He opened his eyes suddenly, “Nagato Munechika is back!”
On the ground, to be precise, in the courtyard of Nagato Munechika’s residence, Nagato Munechika was looking at Saburo Nagato indifferently.
“Munechika!” Saburo Nagato let out a low and suppressed growl, staring at his brother firmly.
“Saburo, didn’t I tell you that you are not allowed to approach the dungeon? It seems that you didn’t listen to me well.” Nagato Munechika shook his head, “You disappointed me. If it weren’t for the subordinates to tell me quietly that they failed to find you, I would never leave the banquet with excuses. Did you know that this was a banquet in the presence of Miss Tsukihime of the Kondo family? They could serve well for the Nagato family.”
“You have always been watching me?” Saburo Nagato’s eyes were almost breathing fire.
The rising anger and years of suppressed hatred made him unable to tell whether he was in a dream or reality.
Nagato Munechika said calmly, “I think you are also of the Nagato family’s bloodline, so even if you become a deserter, I forgive you. But you are too disobedient. Since you are disobedient, then you shall perish.”
A weird smile appeared on his face. This smile put chills on Saburo Nagato at a glance!
This was not the smile that a normal person would have!
At the same time, Saburo Nagato even saw some strange white slender beards appear on Nagato Munechika’s cheeks. At the same time, there seemed to be something wagging behind Nagato Munechika…like a tail!
“Munechika…you…what the hell are you!?”
“Oh?” Nagato Munechika reached out and touched his cheek, then looked at the moon in the sky, and then calmly said, “It’s almost a full moon. I’m getting drunk tonight. It seems I can’t control it. But it’s okay. After all, I have already decided to get rid of you tonight.”
“Demon beast…” Saburo Nagato shivered suddenly, “You are not my brother! You are a demon beast! Or you possessed my brother!”
This thought allowed Saburo Nagato to understand a lot of things!
From the beginning, when his brother suddenly asked for his wife, Saburo Nagato felt that his brother was extremely strange. But at that time, to get funding and the secret art of the Nagato family, he sacrificed his wife, Haru Narukami. He regretted very deeply in his heart.
Nagato Munechika was like a demon and even started to build the ‘Longevity Palace.’ Worse still, since he fled from the battlefield and returned, because of fear this matter was known to the world, Saburo Nagato even ignored his conscience. He had been quietly dealing with the villagers who wanted to fight the ‘curse’ and escaped privately for Nagato Munechika, causing them to be punished by the curse and die.
“Demon beast possess? You don’t understand.” Nagato Munechika shook his head at this time, “How can you understand the true secrets of the Nagato family?”
Nagato Munechika didn’t want to tell Saburo Nagato anything further. Saburo Nagato’s eyes were filled with shock, but a strange cyan light appeared. At the same time, Nagato Munechika’s palm opened. A dark cyan flame appeared out of nowhere.
“This is the fox demon beast’s fire. Rest assured, I will make you feel no pain.” Nagato Munechika just finished speaking and waved his hand instantly. The dark cyan fox demon beast fire directly ejected on Saburo Nagato’s Body.
The ‘fox demon beast fire’ directly submerged into Saburo Nagato’s body.
At this time, Saburo Nagato looked at his chest bafflingly. He even hurriedly pulled off his clothes but still couldn’t see any scars.
Sure enough, I’m still dreaming.
Because of the hatred for my brother, I even thought of him as a demon beast. Saburo Nagato shook his head. I should wake up from this kind of dream.
After waking up, everything will go back to how it was.
In a blink of an eye, a pain that was far more serious than being hit by the enemy soldier’s katana on the battlefield instantly drowned Saburo Nagato’s nerves!
Fire… A lot of cyan fire came out of him! These fires were burning his entire body!
It was an unspeakable pain!
Saburo Nagato fell directly to the ground, clutching the weeds in the courtyard with his palms. He exhausted the last bit of strength, looked up, and saw Nagato Munechika’s more and more demon beast-like appearance. Numerous questions came to him, but he couldn’t speak it out at this moment.
Nagato Munechika approached. He looked at Saburo Nagato’s desperate gaze and said calmly, “Since you are also from the Nagato family, let me tell you the truth. I’m Nagato Munechika, and I didn’t let the demon beast possess me. I’m just getting the power of the fox demon beast. As for the method, you don’t need to know.”
“Munechika…” Saburo Nagato wanted to reach out and grab Nagato Munechika’s leg.
He failed to reach it with his palm grasped nothing.
Haru…I’m sorry…In the end, I still couldn’t…
At the same time, Zixing and Mo Xiaofei were hiding in Nagato Munechika’s bedroom, seeing what happened through the gap in the window.
“Nagato Munechika is a demon beast.” Mo Xiaofei lowered his voice. But this also explained the reason why Nagato Munechika was too powerful, unlike ordinary people!
“It’s weird. How can the spiritual qi of the demon beast be so messy?” Zixing frowned. Her eyes locked on Nagato Munechika’s body, showing a very puzzled look.
Nagato Munechika lifted Saburo Nagato’s corpse with his foot. After confirming that the man was completely dead, he frowned, “Who is hiding?”
Mo Xiaofei’s heart tightened, thinking that Nagato Munechika discovered their hiding spot. They were getting ready to fight. Unexpectedly, Nagato Munechika suddenly looked in the direction of an ancient tree in the courtyard at this time!
“Fox demon beast, how dare you kill humans?”
However, another soft voice sounded, and a figure walked out under the ancient tree. Mo Xiaofei stared at it but was surprised, “How could it be her? Why is she here?!”
Zixing showed a puzzled look.
