Su Zixi was quite capable. His three-foot-long sword was sharp. One swing and several Followers had been killed.
Black blood spilled into the air and the ground was covered with severed limbs. With their legs cut off, some Followers fell onto the ground, howling, which made the scene quite chaotic and horrible.
The prefecture warrior patrolling nearby came right away. He brought other immortals to help as well. No demonist was allowed to escape, or their demonic energy would infect others.
As the prefecture warriors came, he glanced around while killing Followers. Not finding Lu Li anywhere, he asked Su Zixi lamentably, “Where is that Li Lu? Did he run away?”
Su Zixi had already prepared the answer. Pointing to the mountain, he answered with a straight face, “Li Lu is there fighting demonists. Just now, too many demonists rushed over, so he distracted some. Otherwise, I couldn’t have lasted this long by myself and the demonists would have broken free.”
The prefecture warrior looked to where Su Zixi was pointing. The former could not see clearly but he could hear noises of battles.
The immortal slaves who hurried over to help gazed at that direction with admiration. Lu Li risked himself to go into the mountain to distract some demonists. Wasn’t he afraid of infection?
All the demonists were surrounded by some black airstream. Nobody dared to come closer. Once infected, they would be just like the Followers here. Their souls would degenerate until they were walking dead and ended up being killed in the wild.
That prefecture warrior scolded but said nothing else. After all, in principle, Lu Li did not disobey the rules. He did not run away.
More and more immortals were coming. The demonists were rushing over as well, but they were cleared out in crowds.
The Followers had not become immortals and being infected, they were weakened by a large margin. If the immortals could not finish those Followers, then their years of cultivation would be wasted.
After the time for two incense sticks to burn, from the left side of the mountain suddenly rushed out two blue-armored prefecture warriors. Su Zixi took a glance and noticed one of them was the bird-eyed Li Qiang.
Su Zixi sneered. How could a prefecture warrior try to plot against a new immortal?
If Lu Li had been sticking around here, he would fall into Li Qiang’s traps and could lose his life before he knew it. Maybe, Li Qiang would drive down some more Followers to mess up the situation so that he could finish Lu Li easily.
Li Qiang used his bird-eyed to look over Su Zixi and others. Realizing that Lu Li was not here, Li Qiang appeared to be in fury. He turned to the prefecture warrior here.
The prefecture warrior threw a glance to the mountain and winked at Li Qiang who said to the warrior he came with, “You here, help. I will check that side. I think they are barely holding on over there.”
With that said, Li Qiang turned around and rushed into the black smoke. Su Zixi gazed at the mountain, curling his lips. “Brother Lu, they are coming for you! Whether you can survive this is dependent on your fortune!” He said in a voice audible only to himself.
Lu Li did not go into the depth of the mountain. Rather, he was hiding in a gully. His idea was simple. He wanted to hide here until the battle was over. Bird-eyed could not kill him in public.
Him rushing here was dangerous, quite so. First of all, black smoke rose everywhere on the mountain. This was not the average black smoke, but one contained demonic energy.
Once infected, Lu Li could become a demonist and a walking dead like the ones in the Sect of Supernatural Beings. Eventually, he would be executed.
Lu Li had thought this through. Physical infection was not the worst part because the demonic energy could be driven out from the physical body at any time. The worst was soul infection. When one’s soul was infected, one would become a slave of the demons, a demonist.
With regard to souls, Lu Li was confident!
Mainly because he was aware that he had a silver dragon in his soul. The silver dragon never let him down, which gave Lu Li the courage to go into the mountains.
The demonic energy was the first source of danger. The second was the infected immortals. Once Lu Li encountered them, there would be a fierce battle in which Lu Li could potentially lose his life.
The third source of danger would come from Li Qiang who would go out of his ways to hunt down Lu Li. The mountain may appear to be huge. However, given Li Qiang’s speed, he could go over the mountain before long and find Lu Li.
“Should I stay here or head deeper into the mountain?”
While Lu Li stayed in that gully, he made many Stone Golems quickly. He had learned the third level of the Method of Stone Golems. Though those Stone Golems were not powerful, they could create some chaos in the situation. He could have more time and make the best of the opportunity.
If he had gone into the depth of the mountain to the team of prefecture warriors, when Li Qiang caught up with him, he couldn’t kill Lu Li in front of so many prefecture warriors.
On the other hand, Lu Li might encounter powerful demonists in the mountain. Besides—if Li Qiang were to take action, should Lu Li fight back or allow himself to be seized without putting up a fight?
If he were to fight back, then he must let out the immortal’s body. Once the immortal’s body was exposed, huge troubles could ensue. On the off chance that Commander Ye coveted the immortal’s body, then without any doubt, Lu Li would lose his life.
“Never mind. I should wait here. If Li Qiang comes, I will put up a desperate fight.”
Lu Li quickened his action of making Stone Golems. He even let out the Deaf Taoist. One second thought, Lu Li transferred the immortal’s body from the Wicked Bead into an average Interspatial Ring.
With everything done, he waited in silence. His breathes were relaxed and he appeared to be calm when in fact he was more than nervous. Prefecture warriors must excel in certain aspects, more powerful than the average immortals.
The faint layer of black smoke inevitably began to seep into Lu Li’s body, and some were spreading toward his soul.
A moment later, the silver blade inside his soul glowed. All the dark energy that crept in was devoured by the silver dragon.
Lu Li put his mind at ease. At the very least, the demonic energy could not infect him. He could just focus on the fight for his life.
He had chosen a nice spot to hide. He was surrounded by lofty rocks and with roads on the sides. There were Followers rushing down, but they all went along the roads. Lu Li withheld his energy, so no Followers came to his direction.
A moment later, an old warrior tramped over hill and dale toward Lu Li directly. Judging by the speed of that warrior, Lu Li could tell that he was more powerful than the average immortals.
That old warrior was entangled in the black airstream. Blood seeping out on his body was black as well. He must be a powerful warrior of the Sect of Supernatural Being that had broken free from the encirclement.
Before that old warrior came to Lu Li’s location, he had cast a glance. His eyes were blood red. Lu Li’s heart skipped a bit. That old warrior dashed toward Lu Li with strong murderous intent.
“Deaf Taoist. Stop him! Do not be infected!”
Lu Li waved his hand. At the same time, he used over a dozen Stone Golems to stop the old warrior or distract him away. A big fight here could catch the attention of nearby prefecture warriors.
“Well, the Region of Doom is next to the Region of Demons. I will be afraid when faced with a powerful demon. But this kind of demonic energy from a demonist cannot affect me yet.”
The Deaf Taoist roared into the air. He grew to be a giant of over one hundred feet and charged toward the demonist fearlessly.
“Sh*t, you pretentious bastard.”
Lu Li was hopping mad. He wished he could slap some sense into the Deaf Taoist because the roars could have attracted the attention of prefecture warriors nearby.
