When Qiao Zijiang spoke to the demon spirits, no one heard anything. That was because she was using spiritual telepathy.
Everyone could only see the changes of expression on those eleven demon spirits. Only the miniature green dragon remained unfettered with no changes.
The others were all anxious, confused, or restless.
Among them, Long Fan was the jumpiest.
“No, no no, I can’t die here. Right, I’m going to find my eldest brother.” Long Fan the Stygian Snake looked up to see hundreds of meters away, where the Azure Dragon was fighting with a sea monster, and immediately shook his head, overjoyed.
Then, it slithered to the distance at high speed.
“You want the Venerable One to shelter you, but unless you die again…” Qiao Zijiang said coldly, “See those members on the ground that cut off their own route? Their souls will only escape after death, and only then will the Venerable One offer them shelter.”
“Hahahaha, you’ve forgotten that I’m already a soul now…” Long Fan said triumphantly.
Qiao Zijiang was shocked and suddenly grew furious, no longer caring about this demon spirit that fled from the battlefield.
The other party had always been afraid of death, so it was impossible for it to be obedient.
Thus, Long Fan happily continued to slither to the bank of the river.
“I’ve become a snake for more than two years, but it’s the first time that I’m slithering…” It was extremely gloomy.
When it reached the riverbank, it saw the River of Blood’s water surge without ending. It did not even know where it started and ended.
At this time, the waves surging from the fighting in the river hit the riverbank from time to time, splashing out bloody drops of water like a lover’s tears.
Below the water, dark shadows swam back and forth, seemingly watching the battle between the dragon and the crocodile and waiting for the results.
Seeing this scene, Long Fan suddenly froze and was dumbstruck, as if he had forgotten something…
When this scene reached Qiao Zijiang’s eyes in the distance, her heart suddenly felt uneasy.
‘Could- Could it be that that lazy snake lost his own memories?’
“Oh, I forgot that I can’t swim… Yep, that’s the truth. I can’t enter the river.” Long Fan said to himself, and turn around and started to slither.
The speed of him going back was even faster than when he went.
Qiao Zijiang saw that cowardly snake run back and was immediately suspicious, “Why did you come back?”
Long Fan looked around and whispered, “The river is too dangerous. I have a feeling that it’s full of countless fierce creatures. I’ll wait for eldest brother to come out before going to him…”
“Hmph, so that’s it.” Qiao Zijiang said in realization.
After a while, she suddenly asked, “Long Fang, it’s been a few minutes after you left. Do you have any murderous thoughts?”
Long Fan rolled his eyes and said disdainfully, “I’ve always been a peace-loving snake. How would I have any murderous thoughts?”
“Looks like Black Robe was right. At this time, we really have to rely on our treasures. This murderous intent that makes one lose their reason will only affect the owner.” Qiao Zijiang said thoughtfully.
“It’s really true? If that’s the case, isn’t this trial extremely unfair?” Qiao Zishan could not help but say, “If a cultivator doesn’t have anything, then it’ll be impossible for him. Wouldn’t it be missing out on some geniuses then?”
Black Robe grew disdainful after hearing the words, “Fool, this is a place to kill, it’s completely unscrupulous. If it wants to choose a master, it’ll naturally have to choose the strongest. Since when was heaven fair? That’s just a senseless thing that you humans concocted.”
Qiao Zishan glared fiercely at that devil, but he had to admit that what the other party said was the truth.
Furthermore, he also wondered why this devil would spill these secrets as well as their countermeasures. For him, the more people who are eliminated, the more advantages it would be to him.
Just as the people on the shore were making all sorts of preparations, the outcome of the battle in the river was already apparent.
The Azure Dragon struggled for a long time and finally caught the crocodile while it was inattentive. The dragon’s body tightly wrapped around the crocodile’s neck and violently tightened…
With a ‘crack’, the ten-meter giant crocodile was ripped apart.
Copious amounts of fresh blood flowed into the river… Immediately, countless shadows followed from under the surface of the river.
Fang Ning felt that was strange and only spoke after seeing that the battle was over.
“Sir System, you didn’t have to put in extra effort this time, why did you take so long?”
“Hey, I’m collecting combat data. Don’t ask if you don’t understand.” Sir System said disdainfully.
Fang Ning was dissatisfied at being scoffed at by the System, but he could not do anything about it. Being crushed by the god of battle would make anyone be unable to refute.
“By the way, did you hear what Black Robe said earlier?” Fang Ning changed the topic, trying to regain his face.
“I heard it. They just want to compare treasures… Hey, Mr. Rich Boss, you’ll have to sponsor me again this time.” Sir System immediately understood and said sincerely.
“Hmph, now you’re asking me for help? That’s right, when it comes to protective treasures, which one of yours can compare to the ones that the Heavenly Axiom personally made?” Fang Ning finally regained his face and secretly felt happy.
However, he had always been aware of when to be serious. This was the time to advance and never retreat.
Thus, he happily called out his Divine and Earthly Monuments and gave several orders to the frog and macaw, and the two Monuments disappeared.
“What a shame. If we also obtained the Mortal Monument, we’ll have the full set.” The System said greedily.
“Gu Buwei always seems to know when the monuments appear. It seems like we’ll have to rely on him to find the Mortal Monument’s too.” Fang Ning pondered.
“I saved his life before, so he shouldn’t be so stingy to hide this news from us.” Sir System said righteously.
“Alright, alright, we’ll talk about this later. Concentrate your energy and get through this stage first.” Fang Ning stopped the System’s diverging thoughts.
“My energy is always concentrated. Being absent-minded is something only you humans do.” Sir System said disdainfully.
At this time, after the System obtained the Divine and Earthly Monuments, the Azure Dragon’s body in the river flashed with black and yellow energy. The dragon seemed to be different from before, yet it remained the same.
A moment later, in the River of Blood, a black shadow that was attracted to the scent of blood swam over beside the Azure Dragon. As if it suddenly felt that the dead crocodile would not taste delicious, it suddenly took a bite at the dragon instead.
The next moment, two rows of sharp fish teeth neatly fell into the water, and that shadow immediately turned and fled.
“Heh heh, Vigilante A’s body is guarded by the Earthly Monument. Back then, it could even make the Celestial Wolf’s teeth collapse, let alone you local devil fish?” Fang Ning said proudly.
“Yeah, those two treasures of yours really are amazing. If they were willing to listen to me instead, I’d be able to increase their efficiency by 22%.” Sir System sighed.
“Oh, now that you mention it, I suddenly understood that it’ll probably because they don’t want to be used so efficiently that they only want to follow me…” Fang Ning mused.
Two voices sounded from outside.
“Big Brother is right.”
“Master is right.”
“Shut up!” Sir System was flustered, “Fine, I’ve collected my combat data. I’m going to go on a killing spree, and I’m going to go legendary 1 !”
Fang Ning rolled his eyes and sure enough, he heard the System Notifications continuously popping up.
System Notification: [The System has killed Piranha 1.]
[The System has gained 3,000 Experience Points.]
[The System has killed Piranha 2.]
[The System has killed Man-faced Turtle 1.]
[Piranha 7, 8, 9,… 10002 has started attacking the System.]
[Killer Crab 11, 12, 13,… 22223 has started attacking the System.]
“You’re really becoming more lazier. You’re not even giving these monsters proper names anymore. You’re just giving them numbers.” Fang Ning was speechless.
“A person who stays near ink will be stained black.” Sir System lamented.
“Uh, didn’t you say you wanted to inspect the boundaries of this place? Why’re you beating up these little fish and shrimp?” Fang Ning could not be bothered to argue with this 2-year-old System. As it did not know how panicky and Fang Ning was already slightly nervous, he hurriedly reminded.
“Oh, I’m afraid these sea monsters will start killing each other. That’ll be too wasteful… Right, release that useless book and let it farm with me.” Sir System said forcefully.
“Wait.” Fang Ning asked the precious game book to come out, but the game book rapidly shook its book body.
“Oh, it’s saying no.” Fang Ning translated.
“Why?” The System felt indignant, “Having one person who only knows how to watch idly by is enough. I don’t want to raise another…”
“It said, when it farmed monsters before, it had always been specially assigned to do so… it won’t do any exporting.” Fang Ning explained.
“Hey, that book really does has my traditions deep down.” Sir System immediately understood.
“This is called the pupil surpassing the master.” Fang Ning shook his head, “Now, it has an entire squadron of royal guards helping it farm evil sea monsters…”
“Damn it, even I don’t get such good treatment.” The System said angrily.
Hearing this, Fang Ning was struck by inspiration, and suddenly said, “Actually, you’ll have one real soon…”
