Orochi didn’t expect it as the soul master had succumbed to Eric’s plan from the beginning. Not only did it fail to obtain the world’s power, but even itself was also significantly injured. The lightning strike dealt critical damage to the soul.
Orochi urgently needed to swallow something to recover. However, the cherry blossom tree’s root had absorbed everything alive in the Yan Wuyue World, especially around Unripe Rice Village. It was a dignified “calamity snake.” It wouldn’t lower its status and consume the insects in the ground.
But fortunately, the guy with the eternal emperor’s soul unexpectedly appeared near its escape route! How could it let go of this heavenly delicacy!?
Unexpectedly, heaven still opens a path to me, Orochi!
However, Orochi was afraid that Mo Xiaofei’s presence was Eric’s illusion. So, it had been lurking, confirming again and again whether the Mo Xiaofei that appeared in front of it was real. That little doll with the Yin Greedy Wolf seal next to Mo Xiaofei was superb food too. I need to be careful!
Orochi originally planned to observe for more time, but the sudden appearance of Yin Greedy Wolf’s will suddenly disrupt his plan. Is this guy taking food from a tiger’s mouth?
Seeing Yin Greedy Wolf’s will lingering by Zixing’s side, Orochi couldn’t sit still!
Yin Greedy Wolf’s will had to watch out for this purple snake. It knew about the Xiangliu clan, but the injured Xiangliu bloodline in front of it still gave off a dangerous feeling. It was weird that a Xiangliu without a body was still functioning.
As a result, Orochi and Yin Greedy Wolf, who belonged to the loser group, stared at each other in this small cave, wondering how to make a comeback.
“It’s hard to say who will emerge victorious if we fight. But, we can be certain that the remaining one will suffer irreversible damage.” Orochi still spoke first.
“The bloodline of Xiangliu clan, what do you propose?” Yin Greedy Wolf would not relax his guard on this purple snake at all.
“I want the man. You can have the woman.” Orochi stuck out his tongue. “We mind our own business!”
“Sure.” Yin Greedy Wolf agreed immediately without thinking.
Neither of them in the loser league took a move after the discussion; they just stared at each other. They did not take the things that had just been discussed into their hearts.
These two were both treacherous and cunning sly foxes. How could they easily trust each other? But they also understood that the longer they drag on, the more disadvantaged they would be.
This time it was Yin Greedy Wolf’s will to speak first, “The blood of the Xiangliu clan, how about we make the soul vow? Do not assault each other and help each other!”
The soul vow was something that soul master Orochi would not dare easily vow. But conversely, this kind of vow was more substantial than the trust between blood relatives and even husbands and wives. It would be permanent cooperation.
Orochi couldn’t help but think: I’m a spent force. Yin Greedy Wolf doesn’t know my condition, so it is reluctant to act impulsively. Once Yin Greedy Wolf discovers this, I will be overwhelmed. Why not make this vow? Yin Greedy Wolf is mighty. Allying with it is not putting me at a lower status. Besides, under the constraints of the oath, even if it is unwilling, it will do its best to help me restore my power. At that time, I can sit back and enjoy the harvest. Isn’t it awesome?
Yin Greedy Wolf’s will couldn’t help but think: I have separated my will and Yin Greedy Wolf’s power, and now only my will is exposed. Although my spiritual qi has not changed, it is essentially empty. This Xiangliu clan’s bloodline is only afraid of the legend of Yin Greedy Wolf and dare not act rashly. Once the Xiangliu clan’s bloodline discovers it, I will become its prey. This hard-earned freedom will only be an illusory bubble. If it is willing to make this vow, it’s not wrong with its qualifications as the Xiangliu clan. This alliance is naturally acceptable. Besides, under the constraints of the vow, even if it finds out about my current situation and has vile intentions, it has to weigh it carefully. It may even be forced to help me retrieve Yin Greedy Wolf’s power. I get to sit still and enjoy the fruits. Isn’t that a blissful matter?
“Alright,” said Orochi in displeasure. It thought for a moment but pretended to have struggled in making the decision.
“Let’s start then.” Yin Greedy Wolf’s will pretended to be forced into the situation.
These two sly foxes were naturally incomparable to the rookie novices in the demon beast circle. They knew the basics of soul vows. They immediately activated the vow with explicit knowledge of whether the opposing party attempted to cheat in the situation.
“I, as the Xiangliu clan’s Orochi…”
“I, as the Yin Greedy Wolf’s Alioth star…”
When the light of the oath shone on the purple snake and the shadows simultaneously, they smiled in their hearts secretly at the same time.
“So, Brother Orochi, are you helping me? What’s the matter? You actually!”
“Brother Alioth, do you think you should? You cheated on me!”
The two spoke almost at the same time.
The vow took effect. They could sense each other’s state. At this time, their hearts were twitching, as if they were trampled by a wild boar herd stained with cow dung on the feet. Hence, the pair which made the vow stared at each other again, no different from the beginning.
Almost in an instant, Orochi and Yin Greedy Wolf’s will figured out the situation. They couldn’t help but hold hatred in their hearts. But after all, they were both seniors with shrewd minds. They both did not show their joy nor anger. Besides, the vow was established. They could not hurt each other.
“Brother Alioth, let’s enjoy our prey.” Orochi thought for a while. He had no fear of the Yin Greedy Wolf. It was better if they move on to the meal. Through the spiritual qi emitted in the vow, Orochi was confident that the reality was not Eric’s illusion.
“Good.” Yin Greedy Wolf also agreed and returned to Zixing again.
But at this moment, the inside of the cave shook suddenly! The soil cracked in an instant, and the thick tree roots emerged at this instant. It directly entangled Mo Xiaofei and Zixing and pulled them in!
Orochi and Yin Greedy Wolf’s will was unfazed with many incidents, but they could not help but be dumbfounded. Their hearts were once again stepped on by a wild boar herd stained with cow dung on the feet!
These tree roots were untouchable in their current state! A slight contact would make them perish!
It was worse than just being untouchable; they got to flee after encountering the tree roots!
“Brother Alioth, take me. I can’t run!”
“Brother Orochi, I’m not in good shape. Why do you strap around my waist!?”
Izanami couldn’t help but find a sense of security after returning to Yahiro-dono. The decayed body stayed behind the curtain of the main hall at this time.
