Yang Chen had a hunch that this was the case, for the fellow called Gais
had the faint aura resembling the blood race. It looked like they were
indeed of the blood race. They were, however, different from the ones
more commonly found. Compared to the ones heâ€™d seen before, who were
like graceful medieval nobility, these ones were more vicious and ugly.
Just then, the two black men behind also stood up with intense murderous
aura, like shadows steeped in the dark night.
At this, Yang Chen was taken aback. He had shattered their heartsâ€”they
should have died as that was the blood raceâ€™s weak spot. Or are these
not of the blood race?! he thought.
The middle-aged woman who was called viscount instantly tossed Harry to
the stooping Gais with an excited expression. The nimble-footed Gais
caught Harry and immediately retreated to one side, as if witnessing a
â€œYouâ€™ve disturbed our beautiful time of afternoon tea, you damned
maggot.â€ As she spoke, a red blade tip gradually emerged from her right
hand. In no less than a few seconds later, she was gripping a blood red
It wasnâ€™t the first time Yang Chen had seen the blood race use blood
spells; it only confirmed his deduction that these people were of a
special subset of the blood race. Being able to revive even with
shattered hearts was no ordinary feats.
This is going to be quite a pain in the ass, he thought.
In a flash, the viscountâ€™s silhouette appeared directly above Yang
Chen, aiming her scarlet sword straight at his skull!
Yang Chen merely met the bladeâ€™s point with his deceptively fast left
hand. The blood sword could slice gold and jade, but once it reached Yang
Chenâ€™s palm, it shattered into fragments like glass!
In a flash, the viscount had returned to where she initially stood,
staring at her own right hand in disbelief. My own blood sword was
shattered by a humanâ€™s palm?!
â€œAll of us, now!â€
The viscount gave a shrill whistle, directing the two blood race minions
to attack Yang Chen again. This time, she crystalized blood claws on her
fingers, and with all her might, lunged at Yang Chen swooping down on him
The strength of the blood race was shocking by itself. Generally, those
with noble ranks aged at least hundreds of years. Although she was
female, her strength alone could deliver a shock of tens of tonnes!
A devastating thump shook the surrounding space. The viscountâ€™s claw
gripped Yang Chenâ€™s shoulder tightly, creating the ear-shattering sound.
The ground beneath his feet sunk in, creating a smashed crater!
What made the viscount highly alarmed was how Yang Chen only stared at
her indifferently, completely immobile and far from being injured.
This made the viscount, who originally planned to ripped of Yang Chenâ€™s
arm, suffer from cognitive dissonance, and forget what the next step
â€œLetâ€™s see if youâ€™ll de this time.â€ Yang Chen spoke mildly, then
in a sudden spin coolly kicked at the chests of the two black men who
were about to pounce on him from behind!
Although those two were already swift, to Yang Chen they were comparable
to tortoises. Before they could react, Yang Chen had already kicked them
both on their chests!
The two figures practically flew into the invisible wall, the area where
they were kicked caving in instantlyâ€”it seemed like their internal
organs had sustained some severe damage by the kick!
But it was like they were special effects in cartoonsâ€”despite their
recently crushed thoraxes, these two blood minions quickly got up again!
Although they were spitting blood, the two black men had indeed
recovered, and once more stood up shakily!
â€œWhatâ€™s going on?â€ Yang Chen frowned. Although their strengths
werenâ€™t enough to be a threat to him, such resilience to his powers had
made him question wha he knew on the blood race.
Seeing Yang Chen lost in thought, the viscount saw her chance, and opened
her bloody mouth, diving greedily for his neck with her fangs!
â€œDonâ€™t even think about itâ€¦â€
Of course Yang Chen would know, andâ€”without turning his
headâ€”immediately delivered Xiantian True Qi of the Restoration
Scripture from his hand!
The Xiantian True Qi from his palm was no small hit. Even though it was
no significant exertion for Yang Chen, certainly incomparable to the
level of strength he had used when battling Ares, but in all the days of
her life, the viscount had not felt a blow quite this strong. She could
only feel her chest being corroded by an unbearable force as it
completely agitated her internal organs!
A tragic bitter cry arose from the viscount as the Xiantian True Qi
induced violent eruptions in her body, grinding her already-decaying
viscera into fine powder!
However, Yang Chen didnâ€™t let upâ€”as he expected, twenty seconds after
she crumpled softly to the ground, the totally collapsed viscount raised
her head again!
â€œBastardâ€¦ youâ€™ll never kill me! I will destroy you!!â€
Looking at her malevolent face, Yang Chenâ€™s face finally fell. This
blood race had restorative powers beyond his imagination, they could even
recover from injuries which rendered even the most resilient people dead.
What demonic power was it?!
Yang Chen kneaded his hands. The only thing to try now was to pulverize
them into fragments and see if theyâ€™d still resurrect.
But before Yang Chen could begin, the sealed boundary behind him was
â€œHeh heh heh, youâ€™re too careless, Manny, why would you try to catch
such a big fish?â€ A vaguely familiar and charming voice interjected.
On the invisible wall, a ripple slowly split apart to reveal a beautiful
alluring figure walking into this dimension.
With her black British overcoat, her white royal blouse with embroidered
collar, her lively figure, fair skin, and dark blonde curls, the
seductive maiden entered the scene without warning.
â€œLilithâ€¦ damn youâ€¦â€ The viscount who was called Manny immediately
glared at this newcomer with eyes flaming with fierce hatred.
This delicately smiling woman was the same Lilith who had crossed paths
with Yang Chen during the struggle for the Holy Grail in Zhonghai.
Yang Chen never thought that he would meet a female vampire, whom he had
shared a kiss with, here in Paris. But as far as he could tell, Lilith
and the one called Manny were enemies. Moreover, Manny didnâ€™t want to
be discovered by Lilith.
â€œLong time no see, Your Majesty Pluto.â€ Lilith paid no attention to
Mannyâ€™s rage, and instead smilingly approached Yang Chen, pressing her
plump soft breasts up against his arm.
Although the female vampire was a feast for the eyes, Yang Chen reminded
himself that this woman was well over two hundred years old. He smiled
faintly without unnecessary movements, and said, â€œItâ€™s not that long.
Plus, now is no time for reminiscing.â€
â€œHow aloof of you! Iâ€™ve thought about you everyday since we parted in
China,â€ Lilith grumbled breathily. Then she looked at the panting Manny
before her face became cold. â€œItâ€™s too bad that I couldnâ€™t catch up
with you the last time you were changing shells. Good thing you wonâ€™t
escape this time, Viscount Manny.â€
Manny seemed afraid of what Lilith would do, darting her eyes around,
evidently thinking of escape. She laughed nastily. â€œDonâ€™t celebrate
just yet! I am still in possession of a hostage!â€
As she spoke, Manny pointed at Gais who was waiting in the cornerâ€”in
his hands Harry was still in a stupor.
The gaunt Gais was even more fearful of Lilith. His knees were weak, as
he held onto Harry for his dear life.
Lilith turned to Yang Chen doubtfully. â€œYour Majesty Pluto, did you
want to save that child?â€
Yang Chen scratched his head, saying, â€œSince youâ€™re about to come to
blows with your opponent, Iâ€™ll snatch back the kid first.â€
As soon as he spoke, Yang Chen had already vanished from where he stood,
and when he appeared it was in front of Gais.
Before Gais could see how Yang Chen did that, Yang Chen had already taken
Harry from Gais!
â€œThanks for holding on to him.â€ Yang Chen gave an evil grin, not
neglecting to send Gais flying with a kick.
Mannyâ€™s eyes were filled with alarm. Only now did she realize that
sheâ€™d underestimated this mysterious Eastern man. His speed had far
exceeded her imagination!
So from the start there was never a hostage?!
Yang Chen carried Harry to where Lin Ruoxi and the rest were lying, and
dusted off his hands. He said to Lilith, â€œNow thereâ€™s nothing in the
way, you can start your fight. I had put in enough effort as of which. I
want to see how you fight now.â€
â€œI wonâ€™t let you down.â€ Lilith gave him a coquettish glance.
Simultaneously, she reached out behind her in a sword-drawing posture,
and mysteriously pulled out from thin air a machete that shined like the
Yang Chen recalled that this was the Massacre Blade, one of the blood
raceâ€™s thirteen magical weapons. During the battle in that Zhonghai
forest, Lilith had used this blood-stained weapon, leaving no soul
behind. In the end, if it wasnâ€™t for Yang Chen, she wouldâ€™ve split
Cai Ning in two!
A dark smell of blood surged up and permeated the surroundings. The
Massacre Blade flickered with a soul-stirring glint, making Manny and the
rest almost break down all at once.
Looking at the Massacre Blade in Lilithâ€™s hand, getting closer step by
step, Manny fell back slowly, shouting, â€œStop her now! Attack!!â€
The two black men knew that they were no match for Lilith, but the
absolute social hierarchy of the blood race compelled them to lunge at
Lilith without hesitation!
Without even turning back, Lilith brandished the blade behind her. A fire
with the color of blood and darkness flared in the air, like the spray of
the tide, submerging the two minions before burning them in a flash!
The two men could only roar deeply before they were turned to dust,
disappearing into the wind!
Yang Chen gave a start. If he recalled rightly, this move was the
high-level blood spellâ€”blood blaze. This fire had an absolute zero
temperature, yet it was terrifying, being able to disintegrate any living
thing it touched right down to its cells. Once, Lilith had used that high
level blood technique, the blood image, to fool Cai Ning; and now another
ultimate technique. The powers of the pure-blood vampires were indeed
Looking at the minions that could always recover from his blows, Yang
Chen wondered, Can they only be killed by fire? No wonder my blows were
At the other end, Manny stared helplessly as her minions burned up so
easily, panicking even more. Yet as she turned to escape quickly, Yang
Chen, who was behind her a moment ago, appeared before her!
Yang Chen grinned somewhat bashfully. â€œTurns out you have to be burnt
to die. I can use fire, tooâ€”I think youâ€™ll be my test subject.â€
With that, Yang Chenâ€™s right hand shot out before Mannyâ€™s eyes and a
ball of emerald flames erupted!
Manny couldnâ€™t even react before feeling the leaping flames flow onto
her body like water. But although this fire looked soft and wasnâ€™t very
hot, it made her body slowly melt, starting from the point closest to the
By the time Manny had come to her senses, the flame had already swollen
up and swallowed her whole body!
Before she could even scream, Mannyâ€™s body was thoroughly evaporated in
the midst of the ball of flame!
â€œHuh, would you look at that. Turns out it was quite useful.â€ Yang
Chen looked at his right hand. He had just thought of forming the shape
of flames with Xiantian True Qi, otherwise known as the True Flame.
Surprisingly, it worked.
Nearby, Lilithâ€™s Massacre Blade descended softly, and the weak-kneed
Gais was also delivered from this world by the blood blaze.
In a flash, the surrounding dimension broke apart, and everything
returned to normal.
The Massacre Blade in Lilithâ€™s hand vanish in the blink of an eye, and
she walked towards Yang Chen with a curious smile. â€œYour Majesty Pluto,
were the emerald flames you used some type of magic?â€ As a creature who
had lived for over two hundred years, being one of the blood race, she
was extremely curious about anything new, because there werenâ€™t many
things that her race didnâ€™t already know.
Yang Chen smiled but didnâ€™t reply immediately, walking to Harry
instead. He crouched down to inspect Harryâ€™s state of coma, replying
Lilith as he did so. â€œThat was the True Qi produced by the internal
energy I cultivated. According to Chinese martial arts, this is a type of
Xiantian energy; by itself it encapsulates all kinds of elementsâ€”I
merely used it to alter its representation into flames.â€
Lilith nodded, somewhat getting it. Noticing how Yang Chen was inspecting
Harry, she pursed her lips. â€œNo need for thatâ€”Manny must have had
consumed too much of his blood, making him pass out.â€
Indeed, Yang Chen spotted tiny teeth marks in Harryâ€™s neck. Frowning,
he passed a stream of True Qi near the wound, allowing it to heal
quickly. If anyone saw the wound, theyâ€™d naturally think of vampires.
Looking at the unconscious Lin Ruoxi and the Cromwell siblings, Yang Chen
knew they were only sleeping and would be fine. So he glanced at Lilith
and asked, â€œThose were the blood race, right? Since when did you guys
become so powerful until extreme blood techniques like the blood blaze
are required to kill you?â€
Lilith restrained her smile, and spoke in a rare display of solemnity.
â€œYour Majesty Pluto, please donâ€™t lump me together with those
unsightly beasts. That Manny is from one of the two main clans in the
devil association Savathâ€”the ugliest of them all, the Tzimisce clan.
â€œTzimisce clan?â€ Yang Chen seemed to have a vague impression of them,
but no real understanding.
â€œYup. Since ancient times, the Tzimisce clan has been the most brutal,
faithless, immoral disgrace of the blood race. The only merit they have
is their incomparable thirst for knowledge and capability in
investigating scientific knowledge. However, they covet eternity more
than any other clan,â€ said Lilith.
â€œEternity? Again? The blood race already possesses such extended
lifespan, how is that significantly different from eternity?â€ Yang Chen
Lilith shook her head. â€œItâ€™s not the same. Besides a long life, the
kind of immortality the Tzimisce clan seeks includes invincibility, plus
eternal youth as well.â€
Yang Chen was struck dumb. Not even the Twelve Olympians could have
physical eternal youth.
â€œActually, even though their methods are frowned upon, you have to
still admire their drive for the research. At the last turn of the
century, through physiological analysis and experiments involving the
blood race and humans, the Tzimisce clan became the only clan whose
hearts arenâ€™t their Achillesâ€™ heel,â€ explained Lilith. â€œThey also
possess a unique, innate abilityâ€”they can reorganize scattered cell
groups, recreating their bodies. Itâ€™s through this method that the
Tzimisce clan obliterate the bodies of human or vampires, before molding
the body cells onto their own. Thisâ€¦ is also what they call â€کshell
Yang Chen curled his lips. â€œNo wonder that lady said sheâ€™d found a
good â€کshellâ€™ when we met just now. So she wanted to kill my woman and
take on her appearance. What an off-putting power.â€
â€œYea, itâ€™s why the Tzimisce clan has always been one of Savathâ€™s
biggest two clansâ€”they know that weâ€™d never allow them to join
Camarilla.â€ Lilith nodded, and then sighed. â€œAlthough we are still in
a good measure of control on the blood race world, including the Dark
Parliament, these few years, the strengths of the Tzimisce clan and other
Savath clans have been increasing. Tzimisce members by themselves are
constantly growing stronger, causing our clan members who donâ€™t know
high-level blood techniques to be no match for them. So Iâ€™ve been going
around killing the big ones of the Tzimisce clans these few years, trying
my best to prevent them from becoming too rampant.â€
Yang Chen saw that this was also the Dark Parliamentâ€™s internal worry.
With Lilith bringing up these topics, he couldnâ€™t help his curiosity.
â€œLilith, you said Manny was from the Tzimisce clan. So which clan of
Camarilla are you from?â€
Lilith wrinkled her nose and snorted softly. â€œOh, so now you decide to
ask about my origins. Your Majesty Pluto is a slow one indeed.â€
Yang Chen rolled his eyes. Itâ€™s not like Iâ€™m the paparazzi, why
should I ask about everything?
â€œIâ€™m from the Venture clan, and my father is the current clan leader,
Prince Sargeras,â€ said Lilith proudly.
Yang Chen suddenly understood something. â€œSo thatâ€™s why you have the
Massacre Blade. I was thinking, even if you are from a pure-blood clan
and your parents are some third-generation demigods, thereâ€™s no way you
could have gotten your hands on that weapon even if you were over two
hundred years old. If Iâ€™m not wrong, the Venture clan is the highest
clan, with the most nobility in Camarilla. Tsk, tsk, I didnâ€™t expect
that youâ€™re from an aristocracy. In the human world, you could still
find a man with family wealth to marry, and become an upper-class
â€œFiâ€”find a man with inherited wealth?â€ Lilith almost couldnâ€™t
believe her ears. Is he trying to give me a heart attack? Since Iâ€™ve
told him my origins, he should say something nice, but he actually lumped
me in with those tacky ladies from large clans?! Can you even compare
royal princesses to me?!
Yang Chen saw that Lilithâ€™s pretty face almost spouted smoke, and gave
an embarrassed smile with a wave of his hand. â€œIâ€™m just kidding
around. I know youâ€™re very easygoing. Since we so rarely meet, I should
buy you a drink; but you see, I have plenty to attend to unfortunately,
like bringing this child to the hospital, to say nothing of finding his
parents and all that. I think you may leave first.â€
Lilith almost rushed at Yang Chen for a duel. Not a single nice word, and
he wants me to leave?!
â€œYour Majesty Pluto, I have to say that even with all the strength you
possess, you still are a terrible man.â€ Lilith was almost cursing him
by then. Even if she had decided to leave, her mood was still terrible!
But before Lilith could take a step, Yang Chen called out from behind.
â€œWait! Lilith, I have something to ask you.â€
Lilith cracked a small, wicked smile. See that? This man still knows my
worth. How quickly he has found a reason to make me stay.
Lilith turned around nonchalantly and asked, â€œDoes Your Majesty Pluto
have any questions?â€
Yang Chen rubbed his chin and pondered, finally deciding it was better to
ask. â€œActually itâ€™s nothing serious. Itâ€™s just that Iâ€™m not so
familiar with Paris, plus youâ€™re so old, and have been in Europe for so
many yearsâ€”surely youâ€™re familiar with all the places. I just wanted
to ask, which one of the nearby hospitals have reasonable charges?â€
â€œWhâ€”what?!â€ Lilith suspected that she had heard wrongly.
â€œHehe. Well, Iâ€™m about to send this kid to a hospital, and since
itâ€™s nothing serious, Iâ€™ll put him there and wait for his family. But
if theyâ€™re not rich, and I sent him to somewhere too expensive, whose
pocket do you think will have to fork out the bulk of the money? So I
wanted to ask, which hospital is the cheapest?â€ Yang Chen waited
Lilithâ€™s fair face was practically stormy. She resisted the
overwhelming impulse to draw the Massacre Blade for a quick fight, and
broke two cement slabs with a fierce stamp, leaving the scene in a
Yang Chen stared at her departing figure, bewilderedly muttering to
himself, â€œJust admit that you donâ€™t know… What are you angry for?
Could it be that the vampires also undergo menopause?â€
