Blizzard was everywhere. The white snow buried all the vitality on the plateau, and all life seemed to have withered.
At the bottom of a peak, a figure broke through an ice wall. After the ice shattered, a dark hole was exposed. This figure walked in without hesitation.
Gradually, a faint light appeared in front of him. The light source came from rare algae on the tunnel wall. The algae exuded dim light. Soon, the appearance of this blurry figure grew clearer.
It was a man, but he had physical characteristics that a human supposedly would not have. For example, he had a gray ear on the top of his head. Yes, there was only one ear – the left ear. As for the man’s right ear, it had long gone. He also carried a basket in his hand, which was messy covered in gray cloth.
The end of the cave tunnel was bright; there was a huge space. A huge wolf head statue appeared directly in front of this inner cave.
The huge wolf head statue was carved out of the rock wall; it was considered to be connected to the entire mountain. There were many three-meter-high pillars around it with a brazier atop each of them.
Obviously, the blazing braziers were intended as a light source. For the harsh cold environment on the plateau, this little heat made no difference at all. But even so, under each pillar, there were still many brats using it to keep warm.
These brats were not covered in clothes, shivering in fear because of the cold. Their hands and feet had blemishes due to frostbite. The brats huddled together to warm up each other.
The man with only one long left ear glanced around at the entrance. He walked quickly to the wall with the wolf head carving. He put down the basket on his hand, opened the cloth on it, and said calmly, “This is the food for the next ten days.”
Having said that, the man stopped looking at these brats and walked back towards the way he came.
What was in the basket turned out to be bloody raw meat fuming with white steam because of the heat! Even sweat would be frozen into ice under this kind of harsh cold weather, but the blood in the raw meat was still flowing!
This was the flesh of a beast that was just killed!
Hearing this man’s words, a brat group instantly gave up their intention to keep warm and rushed towards the small basket frantically. This would inevitably cause some collisions, even more, cruel incidents.
The man didn’t care about this. He walked away as if he couldn’t wait to leave this place. But he frowned suddenly because he felt something tangled in his legs. The man looked down and saw a guy with a scrawny face.
The man was displeased and said indifferently, “Go there if you want to eat. Don’t hope that I will pity you. Greedy Wolf Clan doesn’t need wastrels like beggars!”
A hint of hatred flashed in the brat’s eyes, but he begged, “I’m fine. Please, send Zhen Long away. Since yesterday, my sister has been feverish. I’m afraid of losing her! Please! Send her away!”
“When you come to the inheritance cave, none of you are allowed to leave until the last heir to Yin Greedy Wolf appears. All of you must stay in this place!”
“I don’t want her to inherit anything from Yin Greedy Wolf. I only want you to send her out! I only know that she is dying! Please!” He kowtowed in front of the man in pain, and the cold ground made bruises on his forehead.
The man looked at the brat impatiently. He saw that a thinner brat was leaning against a pillar at this time. His eyes closed slightly, and his consciousness seemed to be blurred.
The man didn’t care much and even kicked away the brat who entangled him, “No one is allowed to leave, even in death!”
“Zhen Long will die!” The kicked brat staggered to his feet at this time. His internal organs seemed to have been wounded, and he vomited a mouthful of blood.
“Then blame her for her luck. If she has the qualifications for inheritance but doesn’t have the fate to go through the challenge, then she will become the ‘food’ for other heirs.”
“She will die!!” The little boy roared.
The man said indifferently, “If you are not reconciled, then you can inherit the Yin Greedy Wolf and become the Greedy Wolf Clan Young Master. At that time, even if you burn me alive while soaked with oil, I will have no complaints. If you can’t inherit it, die.”
“Why are you so cruel to us!?”
“Why?” The man sneered, “For the last trace of auspiciousness within the Greedy Wolf Clan, the life and death of your brother and sister are naturally irrelevant!”
“I swear… As long as I can or go out, I will kill the Greedy Wolf Clan. I will!”
“Then I will wait for you to come out.”
The man didn’t look at the brat again, left this place, walked out of the cave, and punched the entrance. The cracked, thick snow instantly sealed the entrance. In less than half a day, a thick ice wall would form again.
“Without the Greedy Wolf Star, only the power of Yin Greedy Wolf is left. Please don’t blame me. If you hate me, live through this. I’ll let you do anything to me.”
The man disappeared in the blizzard.
At the end of the cave, the little boy who fell to the ground suddenly stood up. His eyes become bloodshot. He stared at the wolf-head wall carving fiercely.
His fingers suddenly turned into claws. A low and terrifying voice appeared, “I don’t care about the fate of the Greedy Wolf Clan. I don’t care about the survival of the Greedy Wolf Clan. I only want Zhen Long to survive!”
Step by step, he walked behind the brat who was rushing for food, turned into sharp claw arms, and suddenly swung them down. In a quick moment, there were screams and blood splashing everywhere.
The determined brat dug out a heart. Then, he brought the heart to the fainted little girl. He tightened the heart, letting a drop of blood drip into the little girl’s mouth.
“Brother… I don’t want… Brother…”
“Zhen Long, I won’t let you die… definitely not…” The little boy whispered, “Since only one can be left, I will never let you die. You are the weakest among all the heirs. The one that succumbs to others’ food at the beginning, but I will let you live to the end. I will have Greedy Wolf Clan serve you as the master; let those guys dedicate their lives for you.”
When the last heart was also torn open, the little boy gritted his teeth fiercely and launched his hand into his chest, allowing blood to flow into the little girl’s mouth.
“I will let you inherit… the name of Zixing… but don’t worry, I will never die. Never! One day, I will slaughter the greedy wolves by myself. I will… come and pick you up!”
Sending out a trace of blood, the little boy kissed the little girl’s forehead lightly. He then reluctantly walked towards the exit, step by step…
Drops of blood dripped slowly from the white palm. Countless corpses surrounded it. As for these corpses, it was impossible to figure out what kind of creature they were before they were alive.
Only a figure with blood on the palm stood among the many corpses. It turned out to be a young man with a demon beast appearance.
Soon after, a door suddenly opened in this place full of corpses. Another man with a spear walked in slowly. The man who came later looked around, “Is it finished? As expected, Rob, having the name of the wolf king, is amazing.”
The young man with demon beast appearance turned around and glanced at the man, “Kuck, since you are back, then Nero is back too? Then, I can take a break. I don’t have time to deal with these failed Prometheus for her all the time.”
“I’m afraid your idea will fall through.” The spear man, Kuck, said calmly at this time, “Nero is dead. I brought back the Yama Blade.”
