The sky had gone dark.
Nagato Munechika fell headlong into the old site of the Nagato household as the half demon beast in a fiery-red robe inflicted a heavy blow on him.
He easily smashed through the roof beam and then crashed to the floor. The moment Nagato Munechika got up, he vomited a mouthful of blood.
He is too strong.
This was the only thought in his heart.
In actual fact, it wasn’t that the opponent was too strong, but Nagato Munechika was constantly becoming weaker!
Nagato Munechika looked at his palm with difficulty. Starting from his fingers, there were traces of it faded.
Will I disappear?
The inexplicable fear made Nagato Munechika find himself insignificant. But at this time, the threat from the half demon beast and samurai still existed. I can’t let myself die here just like this.
Staggering, Nagato Munechika quickly darted forward.
Just a short time after he fled, two figures landed on the roof opening at the same time. Windchaser looked at the pit that Nagato Munechika made, while Mo Xiaofei was looking around as if feeling something.
“Windchaser, how do you feel?” Mo Xiaofei glanced at Windchaser suddenly and saw that his face was slightly pale.
“A little tired.” Windchaser didn’t hide it and said directly, “The increase in my strength just now is a secret technique which requires me to pay a price. Of course, it is due to the shortcomings in my physical body! But elder brother, I will step up by training myself!”
Mo Xiaofei just smiled without uttering a word. He patted Windchaser’s shoulder casually and then touched Windchaser’s head. Whether in the main world or this Yan Wuyue world, Mo Xiaofei’s appearance was older than Windchaser.
“Strange, I really can’t smell that weird guy?” Windchaser frowned at this moment, “Why does he seem to disappear suddenly?”
Mo Xiaofei nodded and said, “In fact, I also sensed that he had disappeared out of thin air, but I may know where he went. Since he escaped back to Nagato’s household, in the end, there’s only one place he would go. Windchaser, be careful later. There is something horrible that dwells in the Nagato house! Come with me!”
Naturally, the place where Mo Xiaofei was going was the dungeon of Nagato’s house!
There were two passages in the dungeon.
Nagato Munechika stumbled and finally opened the entrance to the dungeon. When he came to the road fork, Nagato Munechika vaguely heard the sound coming from the direction leading to the ‘Longevity Palace.’ He knew what was happening over there at this time, but he had no intention of paying attention to it at this moment.
He chose the other direction.
Supporting himself on the wall, every step taken took a heavy toll on Nagato Munechika. Looking at the faded marks that spread to the arm, Nagato Munechika’s manic expression on his face was even more apparent.
I will not die. I am the strongest.
Faith supported his fading body. When Nagato Munechika came to the end of the passage, he directly touched a particular brick on the wall. The wall at the end automatically retracted to both sides. Nagato Munechika took a deep breath and quickly walked into it. He didn’t even plan to close the entrance.
He knew that the half demon beast and samurai duo were chasing behind him at this time. No time could be wasted!
I will not lose after giving up my humanity. I will never lose!
A series of cyan fireballs appeared as Nagato Munechika passed by. The floor here was polished. Many wooden beams situated here support this place.
At the end of the passage, there were traces of cyan-colored smoke and mist. They were slowly permeating the place. When Nagato Munechika was immersed in the cyan smoke, he felt refreshed, albeit he wasn’t sure whether it was just a placebo.
There was a square pool in front of him. The pool was pitch black, occupied with mud-like material. In the center of the square pool, there was a woman’s corpse.
The corpse was naked. The supposedly beautiful skin was corrupted by something!
Before the woman died, she was probably in extreme horror. The remaining half of her face was still intact. It was a horrifying expression that would drench people in a cold sweat when they saw it. It was Tagitsuhime, one of the three Munakata Muses, which Nagato Munechika captured not long ago!
At this time, Tagitsuhime’s corpse “floated” on the black material of the square pond, staring directly at the top with wide eyes. But, Nagato Munechika didn’t even look at her. His body had faded a lot and became weak. He struggled in a simple movement like standing. Half of his body was already lying on the edge of the square pool. He reached out and inserted his hand into the black substance, fumbling for something!
An exclamation came!
“What is this!?”
Nagato Munechika turned his head back with struggle, looking at the duo that appeared behind him, suddenly smirked. He was about to find that thing!
I need a little more time, just a little more.
“This is the Nagato family’s greatest secret.” Nagato Munechika looked at the duo hunting him and said solemnly, “Are you surprised? My Nagato family’s greatest research! The true secrets of the Nagato family!”
Mo Xiaofei’s face grew uglier. He had a keen eye and noticed the miserable condition of the muse immersed in the square pool. He had never seen such a cruel method, “You… What did you do to her!?”
“I’m just letting ‘it’ devour fresh flesh and blood.” Nagato Munechika sneered, “Only by constantly devouring fresh flesh and blood, ‘it’ can preserve itself and not die.”
“It?” Windchaser frowned at this time, “This room is full of demon beast qi, which is similar to your body. Is this the source of your power?”
“You’re right!” Nagato Munechika laughed, “My ancestors once participated in the hunt on a powerful fox demon beast! After the fox demon beast died, it fell apart! A powerful onmyoji sealed the soul and took it away. My ancestors were rewarded with the land of Unripe Rice Village because of the merits. However, my Nagato family suffered huge casualties. In the end, we only got such a small piece of land. The Kondo family’s samurai and the tycoons did not do much, but they have received many rewards! The Nagato family is not satisfied! However, what everyone did not expect is that we found ‘it’ in the decisive battle with the fox demon beast!”
Windchaser had no interest in the Nagato family or its past but was interested in ‘it,’ “What on earth is it!?”
“Heart!” Nagato Munechika showed a frenzied expression, “No one would have thought that Nagato Family had acquired the heart of the fox demon beast! Moreover, it is still a beating heart! After several generations of research, we finally obtained the way to gain power from this heart!”
Speaking of this, Nagato Munechika directly tore the only pieces of clothes left on his body at this time!
His abdomen came out, revealing a centipede-like wound! Nagato Munechika laughed like a demon, “Look at this! As long as I put the fox’s demon beast’s heart into my body, the Nagato family can gain powerful power!”
“You consumed the demon beast’s flesh and blood.” Windchaser looked at Nagato Munechika at this time. Instinctive killing intent appeared.
However, for an instant, a scene when Windchaser just came to the Yan Wuyue world flashed in his mind. It took place at a small tea shack. The terrified face that looked at him.
“Please don’t eat me.”
“Since demon beasts feast on people, why can’t humans eat demon beasts!?!” Nagato Munechika roared!
The phenomenon of demon beasts eating humans was present in both the main world and Yan Wuyue World.
Since demon beasts ate humans, why couldn’t humans eat demon beasts?
Windchaser fell a heavy weight on his shoulder. Mo Xiaofei suddenly slapped it hard. Windchaser was taken aback, only to realize that his back was drenched in a cold sweat.
He took a deep breath, nodded towards Mo Xiaofei, and whispered, “Elder Brother, I’m fine. I feel… I really can’t…”
“Let’s talk about it later.” Mo Xiaofei said with firm eyes, “Now our enemy is him!”
Mo Xiaofei stared at Nagato Munechika at this time. In the time reset loop that lasted one year, he couldn’t find out the truth from Nagato Munechika due to the disparity in strength. However, it was the best opportunity now.
“Nagato Munechika. The old people in the village who died suddenly said that they died because of a curse, but in fact, they were used by you to feed ‘it’ in this pond; to feed the heart of the fox demon beast!”
Nagato Munechika glanced at Mo Xiaofei in surprise, not knowing the origin of this samurai, but coldly snorted, “The weaklings only have the value of being reduced to food.”
Mo Xiaofei squeezed his fist and snarled, “What’s the matter with ‘Longevity Palace’!?”
“How can flesh and blood of ordinary people be enough to make ‘it’ full of vitality? We need a lot of powerful things to feed ‘it’!” Nagato Munechika said calmly, “The black market is full of demon beasts’ materials. That’s a good feed. But it requires a lot of wealth. The existence of the ‘dungeon’ is needed. On the other hand, through intercourse, the men and women who have fallen into the abyss of bliss will exude a… Forget it. You won’t understand it!”
“Nagato Munechika!” Mo Xiaofei’s forehead had veins bulging. A heavy pressure spread out from his body, “You…”
