The ambush by the Eight-Eyed Giant Lizard and the simultaneous three-man
attack on him had all been resisted by Anthony. With that, the chances of
survival for the three of them had decreased.
“Are you okay?” Yannen helped his team member up.
“I’m alright, chief. What do we do next?” The team member moved his
entirely numb body which was in rather bad shape. Anthony had now joined
the White Ghosts. This man was cruel and relentless, and had never
allowed for any leeway, so if this continued on…
“In a while, the Eight-Eyed Giant Lizard will come out. When that
happens, we grab the opportunity and withdraw!” Yannen said in a low
The two team members, as each other’s right-hand man, exchanged looks
at that moment and nodded slightly.
A voice growled.
On the wall of rock not far off, Anthony’s entire body was madly
shooting off electric currents, blasting his three attackers once again.
Step by step, he walked closer to Glory and picked her entirely limp body
up. She had no energy at all to get up. With the tip of his finger, he
lightly pricked and drew a line of glabella blood from Glory’s glabella.
Strangely, this line of blood did not fall according to its weight but
made a beeline towards the stone wall opposite of it, as straight as a
There was a sudden furious roar of a wild animal from under the wall of
rock which was moving.
There was a flash of frantic enthusiasm across Anthony’s eyes as he
watched the fresh blood spurt onto the rock wall. Like acid, it began to
corrode the black stone quickly.
The strange thing was that after the stone had been corroded, there were
strains of whitish gold blood flowing out.
The stone wall began to shake violently and two gigantic blood-red
tongues whipped out from both sides of the rock, winding towards Anthony
who stood in the middle.
It was only then that the people there could clearly see, this was not a
stone wall. It was a giant lizard in disguise, crouching on the ground.
There were eight eyes on its head and two small mouths, one on each side.
The two tongues just now had been spat out from there.
“Lightning Contract!” Anthony stretched out his hand abruptly and
slapped his palm on the part of the Giant Lizard that had been corroded.
Huge bouts of electrical current erupted from his body and flowed into
the body of the Giant Lizard violently.
The Eight-Eyed Giant Lizard lashed around in pain.
“Lightning Contract! He wants to control the Giant Lizard! Quick!
Quick, interrupt him!” Glory screamed. She wanted to jump over, but her
entire body was still weak; after forcing herself to get up, she fell to
the ground again.
“It’s impossible for him to succeed! No one has succeeded in the
family for over a hundred years! It’s impossible! Impossible!” The
little boy from the mud did his best to get up. There were bloody wounds
all over his body, making him look like a human made of blood.
“Let’s attack together!” Angel shouted, shooting up from the
ground. He was the White Ghost who had dragged Anthony’s steps back
He bellowed ferociously, as he pushed out an invisible forcefield like a
clap of thunder in a mad frenzy.
Seeing this, Glory and Beirut knew that this was their last chance. If
they were to wait until Anthony had a free hand, the three of them die
without even knowing how.
“Thunder!” The two of them roared at the same time.
This was a desperate killing move, the most powerful move amongst the Ice
Thunder techniques of the family, which would kill the executioner of the
move as well as their target. In an instant, all the ice thunder electric
fields in their bodies would explode.
The electric fields of the three people were combined into one and
suddenly condensed into a slightly black electrical current ball the size
of a brain. Angel held it in his hand and ferociously pushed it towards
Anthony turned his head and a sneer finally appeared on his face.
With one hand, he turned around to push him back just in time to face the
slightly black ball created by the forces of the three individuals.
There was an explosion.
Numerous electrical currents dissipated in the eruption like a water jar
being blasted into pieces. There was a detonation in between the two
people, sending out countless electric arc pieces. The discharge caused
the mercenaries in the area who could not dodge them fast enough to be
completely numb in their bodies. One of them, unable to move fast enough
to avoid the harm, got electrocuted in the arm, which charred it
Ripples of electrical residue suffused and spread through the soil and
plants on the ground everywhere. The blue electrical residue continued to
spread out, climbing onto tree trunks and crossing over the grassy earth.
However, most of it had hurtled towards the body of the Eight-Eyed Giant
Lizard which was close by.
With an excruciating howl, the Eight-Eyed Giant Lizard’s spider-like
red eyes finally turned blue, and it suddenly crouched down. Its head
curled onto the ground tightly before Anthony, in complete submission.
“Hahahahaha!” Anthony lifted his head and began to cackle wildly.
The plan he had to conceal for so many years had finally succeeded today!
“With the Eight-Eyed Giant Lizard, let’s see who can stop me from
getting the secret scroll!”
There was a maniacal flash in his eyes as he watched a black stone door
slowly open in the ground the Eight-Eyed Giant Lizard had moved away
from. The stone door seemed to look like a shadow of an illusion,
appearing and disappearing in a slight blur. However, Anthony knew that
this door was indeed, enterable. This was the great fortune that the Ice
Thunder family had been accumulating for hundreds of years. The Ice
Thunder scroll was not the only thing in there.
As Glory and the rest watched in despair, Anthony reached out his hand to
take off the metallic pendant hanging on his necklace. It was in the
shape of an icy blue lightning bolt.
“Go, Lightning Heart. Open the great door that truly leads to the
He lifted the Lightning Heart gently and shook it forward.
A cluster of lightning in the shape of a ball was suddenly unleashed by
the pendant, hurling towards the black door on the ground.
An immensely dazzling white light erupted the moment the electric ball
and the black door clashed.
“A secret kept for so many years, finally… It’s finally going to be
in my hands! Hahahaha, do you see, brother? I’m finally obtaining
it!” Anthony watched as the black door slowly solidified in the white
light. Finally unable to control the glee in his heart, he drew his head
back and laughed maniacally.
At that moment, an item that looked like a goat-skin scroll eventually
rose up from the middle of the black door. There was a string of blue
electric arc around the scroll, as though it was a high voltage electric
current generator itself.
Anthony stopped laughing and took a huge, rushed step forward,
immediately stretching his hand to grab the scroll in the midst of the
electrical white light.
Glory and the others closed their eyes, hopeless. The moment Anthony laid
his hands on the secret scroll was the moment they would be killed.
Right then, the second Anthony’s hand was about to come into contact
with the secret scroll, a horrifyingly immense power suddenly attacked
him from the back.
A great, unstoppable force field descended, hitting Anthony hard and
causing him to fly off like a rubber ball and crashing into the pinewood
forest with a whoosh. There was a trail of fresh blood; no one knew how
far he went or how injured he was.
“The secret scroll is mine!” A beam of black shadow immediately
appeared where Anthony had been, reaching out to grab the secret scroll.
“You wish to have it for yourself?!” Another black shadow fell from
the sky, landing hard on the ground like heavy metal, causing cracks to
appear in the earth. Even before he steadied himself, he had violently
grasped the hand of the first person with his right arm.
“You’re asking for it, Second Brother!” The first person roared in
a fury. The horrifying force field immediately shrunk and condensed into
the palm of his hand; with a backhand, he hit the second person.
The mere residual ripple from the terrible power of these two people
could already rival the explosive, fatal threat of Anthony’s full power
The moment the two immense and horrifying force fields collided, everyone
in the vicinity, including the mercenaries and Glory was blasted away.
They rolled and landed all over the place, unmoving. Each and every one
of them were heavily injured and unable to move.
Even the powerful Eight-Eyed Giant Lizard had been hit by the great
residual ripple so badly that its entire body was injured. It laid curled
up on the ground and did not dare move.
The hands of the two people made direct contact, stacking onto the
explosive and great power, which turned into ripples of substantive
energy, gradually dissipating.
The first person opened his mouth to unleash a violent lion-like roar,
shaking the second person up slightly. In that split-second of
hesitation, the secret scroll was snatched by the first person.
Right at this time, the voice of a third person suddenly sounded out in
the forest nearby.
The black edge of a sword shot out from the forest like lightning,
crashing into Boss’s arm brutally, causing the secret scroll in his
hand to drop out.
At the same time, another black shadow flew out from the forest, landing
next to the first two people.
The three of them stood facing each other, in a triangular stance.
The third person seemed slightly strange. Other than the black shadow
covering his entire body, there were also slivers of dark red light
flowing out vaguely from him, as though his body was emitting red light
at all times.
Garen stood still on the spot, his eyes fixed on the secret scroll
diffused with an electric arc in the middle.
He had put in all of his power into the swing of his blade just now to
activate the Blood Eagle State. Only, he did not expect that it merely
shook Boss’s hand open. It had not even harmed him. The difference
between them was very clear. If such a blow could not even hurt them,
then his most powerful skill, the Double Prison Lock, would only be able
to inflict light injuries upon his opponents, at most.
If they were really going to fight, he would have to run at the first
chance. This person was indeed the First Seat of the Great Elder, a
Double-Moon Level master.
Beyond Level Five, there was the New-Moon Level, the Half-Moon Level, and
then the Double-Moon Level. There were two entire thresholds in the
Garen understood it himself, that even though he had trained with the
Demon Blade and his power was extremely great, enabling him to bypass
battles, but with the addition of his original skills, he could only deal
with the Half-Moon Level stages at most. It was still a little too early
to face a Double-Moon Level.
These people before him were not even the typical Double-Moons but had
accumulated many years of a horrible existence. If he were exposed, he
would be facing an extraordinary danger.
It was not as though no one had ever fallen amongst the Three-Hearted of
the Scarlet Snow Sect. There were many ways to shield the crystals of the
sect, as long as he could do it in complete secrecy.
Thinking about this, his alertness was heightened to the maximum level,
maintaining the highest level of caution.
“Let’s adhere to the original agreement,” Garen’s disguised
voice, sharp and shrill, spoke calmly.
“That is mine!” A sudden electrical energy surged in madly from
behind Garen; it was at least Half-Moon Level. It was the heavily injured
With a face full of blood, he rushed out in a craze. His entire body was
like an electrical hedgehog as he pounced towards the three people.
Garen did not wait for the other two to respond. He immediately pulled
out his blade and, upon turning, swung it.
In that split second, the special transformation effect of the Ten
Thousand True Technique merged in; the Demon Blade carved a black scar
mid-air, twisting and turning down like a broken line drawn with a
pencil. It speedily flew towards the front of Anthony’s body.
The black line hurtled in, and, with a violent twist, swung to the back
of his body and brutally cut in through where the electrical current was
Anthony’s eyes grew wide and he stood in a daze where he was. With a
crash, his entire body was cut in half.
Garen slowly drew his blade back, breathing easily as though it was just
a casual swing of the sword.
