Spare Me Great Lord Chapter 453
As someone who had rolled in thousands of gargoyles, even Li Yixiao was in shock. What was it like to have close to ten thousand?!
With such powerful backers, it would not be an issue at all to take down five organizations concurrently! Therefore, Li Yixiao's first reaction was one of admiration!
But he was confused too about where on Earth brother Lu Shu had found so many gargoyles.
It had already been an extremely arduous task to roll in over a thousand of them earlier. Yet, Lu Shu brought in so many with commendable efficiency. Impressive!
Thus, Li Yixiao had gasped in admiration as he could not achieve the same feat as Lu Shu…
Of course, Li Yixiao did not know what had truly happened… Lu Shu had a great future ahead of him, he thought, the two of them would be able to wreak havoc in any remains if they joined forces. By then, they would become the epitome of invincible!
But there was no time for daydreams just yet. Before Zhi Wei had come to a decision, Li Yixiao had already fled like a horse…
His backers attacked everyone indiscriminately! They had no chance of victory in this circumstance.
Zhi Wei and his Golden Foundation members were stunned by Li Yixiao's reaction. Taking a deep breath, Zhi Wei commanded, "Run!"
On the other side, Howard was attempting to portray the Phoenix Society as the most powerful figure in the cultivation realm through their performance in the battle. His job scope of managing overseas matters was more than that of a good fighter, but more of demanding respect.
Take the Heavenly Network as an example. A few successful battles had deterred foreign Practitioners from breaking through China's national boundaries without permission.
Just when individual Practitioners were watching Howard posturing, a brawny figure came into sight, dashing upstream without a word.
Wasn't that Li Yixiao? Everyone was stunned. Why was he back?!
Unmoved, Howard curled his lips in scorn at Li Yixiao's receding figure. He had earned himself an infamous reputation among the international Practitioners community. Despite all the trouble he caused, did he not fail to secure the relic in the Laos remains? Why did the Heavenly Network send such a joker to the remains?!
Then came a flurry of footsteps from downstream. In the next second, Zhi Wei led the Golden Foundation through the crowd without saying hi.
The scene afterwards was even more shocking, as Lu Shu and Lu Xiaoyu sprinted across the ground with countless gargoyles following behind…
Meanwhile, everyone was in a state of total exhaustion from the battle with bugs and Howard had just mocked them for their cowardliness in the face of dangers…
"From Howard Miller's distress, +666!"
At this moment, safety was more important than saving face! It did not matter how he bragged, but still the interest of the entire Phoenix Society was of top priority!
He would not have been chosen to lead if he was just a rash man who knew only about reputation. In any case, the foreign policies of the Phoenix Society were different from those in the Heavenly Network…
Before everyone else could react, Howard had already taken the lead to flee upstream…
Hadn't he just criticized that the act of flight in danger was one for the weaklings? People were stunned. But Howard was shocked by the trouble-making ability of Heavenly Network members.
All of the individual Practitioners instantly took to their heels. Be it tired or wounded, no one would be willing to be left behind as the diet for ten thousand gargoyles.
"Excuse me! Excuse!"
Before they could run far, Lu Shu had already started to overtake them with Lu Xiaoyu…
That was the official commencement of the second marathon in the underground remains. Runner Lu Shu began speeding up from the inner lane, instantly gaining a huge advantage, way ahead of the rest…
But soon, Lu Shu found the right time and returned to the blood pool via the earth with Lu Xiaoyu's help.
If they had done so earlier, all the gargoyles would have immediately been attracted to Li Xianyi. Thus, Lu Shu's plan was to bring them to those big organizations and individual Practitioners.
Of course, their kind help would be reimbursed too, with Lu Shu's sincere wishes…
Zhi Wei's face became grave as individual Practitioners were being caught by the gargoyles. He turned to his men and said, "Please assist me!"
Then, he skidded to a stop, thunder rolling from inside his body. At that instant, his physical form had merged with his inner powers. His pupils were deep like black holes, and electrical arcs danced crazily on his skin.
A thundering voice roared from inside Zhi Wei's body, "Enter the tunnel. Don't try to explore the remains. I can only buy you three minutes!"
He was commanding individual Practitioners. After three minutes, even his Class B capabilities would not allow him to hold back those gargoyles any further.
Instantly the entire underground cavern was as bright as daylight due to the flashes of lightning, which weaved into a giant web, sealing the pathway of the gargoyle spearhead.
"Go!" and thunder raged.
Upon his command, all members of the Golden Foundation unleashed their powers. In an instant, splendid pulses of mana blew many gargoyles into pieces!
Zhi Wei's thunder state weakened over time. Once three minutes was up, he returned to his human form. A Golden Foundation pro immediately threw him over his shoulder and carried him upstream. They had done their best!
Lu Shu led Lu Xiaoyu skimming through the underground. Now, their only concern was to assist Li Xianyi in any way possible!
They would be genuinely sad if anything happened to the old man.
But just when they were about to reach the blood pool, an urgent sense of danger suddenly rose from Lu Shu's heart. Lu Xiaoyu's reaction was quick as well. She immediately formed a thick protective shell around them using soils mixed with deep sea white sand.
At that instant, an immense force came from the surface like a wild beast, not seeming to attenuate at all through the layers of earth. In a split second, the underground structure collapsed and exploded like a sheet of fragile paper.
Immediately Lu Shu pulled Lu Xiaoyu over to protect her in his arms. However, the impact had left him with a bleeding nose and a buzzing sound in his ears.
