Long Live Summons! - Chapter 779.1
Chapter 779.1 [Assault, Murder Mystery]
Inside Rain Valley, there were numerous windy and curvy passages.
The most gripping thing is that in this maze of passageways, there are many roads that are interconnected and lead back to each other without a clear path forward. In a storm, it is easy for an entrant to lose his or her way. Only now did Yue Yang understand why they were not allowed to fly, as once they took to the skies, the maze would practically be useless and they would be able to directly bypass it. As for not being allowed to summon warbeasts, it should be to prevent warbeasts that have a strong sense of smell or some sort of direction induction to directly lead the way through the maze. These 2 restrictions forced all entrants to rely on their own abilities to find the true passage in the Rain Valley.
This is a kind of trial.
Yue Yang had waited for a long time at a three forked road, and now that the Deputy Palace Lord had gone through this place twice and still hadn’t found the correct path, he couldn’t help but be bored.
The Deputy Palace Lord, who also had an excellent memory ability, would never repeatedly walk the same path he had chosen before. However, in the face of the completely unfamiliar crossroads, he could only gamble and choose a fork, unable to directly see the correct path like Yueyang, who was able to use his Divine Vision to directly identify the correct path.
From a distance, a sharp cry was heard.
Despite the gusty winds and torrential rain, the screams of the wounded were as clear as lightning breaking through the sky.
Even the Deputy Palace Lord who had taken a few steps down the fork he chose, returned immediately, a guarded and wary look appearing on his face.
There was actually someone else apart from himself who had entered the ruins.
And, by the looks of it, it was more than one person.
The Deputy Palace Lord traced the sound and moved towards its location, when he arrived, he saw a man in black who was holding a dagger that was dripping blood.
That Divine-grade dagger, was pitch black as ink, every drop of blood that dripped onto the waterlogged ground would ignite a cloud of green smoke. The black-clothed man immediately laughed coldly when he saw the Deputy Palace Lord coming from afar: “I was wondering who it is, turns out it is Palace Lord Wei Shu. Didn’t the Central Palace Hall declare that it would not send out explorers to explore these ruins personally? Why are they going against their own word?” “Demon Doctor Wei Jing Lue, I originally had no intentions of coming, but since there was murder and unethical snatching of treasures within, how could I not come? If the Central Palace Hall does not take action, wouldn’t it mean putting all the explorers of Snowfield Camp in danger?” The Deputy Palace Lord who was named Wei Shu was a very experienced veteran and was able to immediately change the situation. Using words to instantly shift the blame back to the other party. After a moment’s pause, he continued asking, “Who is it, who is it that dares to attack you, this Demon Doctor whose body is filled with poison? Is it people from Imperial Temple King or is it Sky Realm King’s underlings?”
“Neither, it’s the Ghost Eye King.” The black-clothed Demon Doctor Wei Jing Lue laughed coldly.
“The Ghost Eye King is here?” Wei Shu was faintly startled when he heard this.
“Not only him, but also the Six Pan King, the Sky Water King and the Sea Swallowing King have all come, only they are like fish returning to water in this Rain Valley, leaving me and the Ghost Eye King far behind while they went ahead first.” Demon Doctor Wei Jing Lue exhaled a mouthful of black fog and enveloped himself, and his originally injured and weak body quickly recovered.
The killing intent in the eyes of Deputy Palace Lord Wei Shu was half hidden and a tint of pity flashed past, seemingly regretting the missed opportunity to finish off the Demon Doctor.
Of course, there was some justification for his caution.
Although the Demon Doctor Wei Jing Lue was not as strong as him in terms of rank and strength, yet his reputation as a poison expert was far more feared in the Heaven Realm than any other ordinary King rank Heaven Ranker.
Even if there was a good opportunity right in front of him, Deputy Palace Lord Wei Shu would not take it easily. If he is unable to finish off an opponent like the Demon Doctor, then the consequences were endless. Furthermore, the Ghost Eye King, the Six Pan King, the Sky Water King and the Sea Swallowing King are all here, even if Deputy Palace Lord Wei Shu personally feels that he is stronger than any of them by a comfortable margin, he would not dare to take the enemy lightly.
It would be a good idea to find an ally, such as the Demon Doctor Wei Jing Lue.
With two against four, it would be better than going against the four Kings alone.
The second Deputy Palace Lord Wei Shu thought of this, he immediately laughed and said, “Demon Doctor, the situation now is pressing, why don’t we two join hands? If we can discover the treasures of the Rain Valley, you can choose first. Towards allies, we from the Central Palace Hall would never sneakily attack from the back.” , Demon Doctor Wei Jing Lue immediately sarcastically replied, “Yes, if I let the Ghost Eye King beat my brains out, I will definitely believe your words!” “In actuality, regardless of whether the situation is pressing, or for the common good, our alliance is not harmful, why must we be stubbornly outnumbered?” As if not hearing the Demon Doctor’s mockery, Wei Shu laughed and continued: “I believe the Ghost-eyed King is lurking in the distance, as long as we join hands and get rid of him, the only enemies left are the Six Pan King, the Sky Water King and the Sea Swallowing King. You also know that the Six Pan King is cunning and treasures his life, I reckon he will remain neutral and not participate in the battle between us, as for the remaining Sky Water King and the Sea Swallowing King, the two of them have always been at odds, even if they are forced to join forces, their battle prowess will certainly be far less powerful than us, I promise, as long as you join forces with me, I, Wei Shu, will go all out in the entire battle, absolutely not using the lives of allies to exchange for victory, how about that?” ” What a touching proposal, however, I won’t trust anyone else. The Ghost Eye King and I have been good friends for hundreds of years yet he would still betray me for profit, let alone you?” The Demon Doctor Wei Jing Lue kept away his Divine grade dagger which was black as ink and took the lead, declining the offer of Wei Shu to join hands.
“Well, we have time, take your time to consider my offer.” Wei Shu was not in a hurry, this alliance was not that important to him and he could do without it as well.
As long as, when the need arises, there is an ally to lend a hand.
At that time, not only himself, but also the Demon Doctor Wei Jing Lue will definitely need a hand, the alliance will naturally be formed then. On the battlefield, Wei Shu had experienced this kind of thing countless times and was completely familiar with how it would end up..
On the verge of walking out of the Rain Valley maze, Wei Shu suddenly heard an extremely soft sound.
Although the sound was greatly muffled by the wind and rain, Wei Shu could be sure that this, was the Ghost Eye King.
