The Draconic Beastman issued a loud scream after leaving the protection of the Planar Path Fragment. He was like a dozing drunkard being suddenly woken up and struggling wildly. Unfortunately, he was no longer protected.
“Fuck” Lin Yun swore angrily.
But he still stopped pouring mana into the Crystal Scales.
As Lin Yun cut the flow of mana, the Crystal Scales that were on the verge of bursting managed to stabilize and the Planar Path Fragment no longer shook, the surrounding spatial distortions also gradually recovered. At the same time, Lin Yun cast a Vine spell and sent the arm-thick vine through the void towards the Draconic Beastman.
Then the Vine curled around Xiuban’s body and Lin Yun felt the Vine becoming more heavy as other side was struggling and screeching, “Help Help”
“Hmph” Seeing the Vine curled around the body of the Draconic Beastman, Lin Yun sighed in relief and controlled the Vine to pull him back as he shouted, “Are you crazy!”
“Hold on, Sir, please free me” But Lin Yun hadn’t expected that just as the Vine pulled Xiuban back, the latter unexpectedly started struggling again.
It looked like he wanted to break free from the Vine’s binding.
“What’s the matter?” Lin Yun was stunned.
“Sir, look, look, over there”At this time, the Draconic Beastman didn’t know how to explain, so he just kept struggling while pointing ahead of him.
“Ah?” Lin Yun followed the Draconic Beastman’s finger and caught sight of a particular corpse.
That was the body of a Three-Headed Golden Dragon.
As one of the peak existences of Noscent, the Three-Headed Golden Dragon’s scales still flickered with a dazzling golden light even after being dead for so many years. Although it had lost its life and power and was merely floating in the void, Lin Yun could still feel its might and majesty.
Why was the Draconic Beastman desperately struggling to rush over?
If him leaving the protection of the Planar Path Fragment earlier could be considered as an accident, then why was he struggling so much now that Lin Yun had gotten hold of him with the Vine and was pulling him back towards the safety of the Planar Path Fragment? Why was he trying to get to the Three-Headed Golden Dragon’s corpse with all his might?
If felt as if he found that corpse very attractive.
‘Could it be’ As he thought of a possibility, Lin Yun’s heart couldn’t help being moved.
He didn’t say anything and directly controlled the Planar Path Fragment and quickly moved it to the corpse of the Three-Headed Golden Dragon.
Even under the protection of the Planar Path Fragment, Lin Yun could clearly feel a frightening power in the surroundings as they drew closer to the Three-Headed Golden Dragon.
Lin Yun understood.
There was a bright red spot on top of the corpse.
This bright red spot seemed especially conspicuous among the dazzling golden scales.
That was a drop of blood.
That drop was on the chest of the Three-Headed Golden Dragon. Lin Yun had thought that the Three-Headed Golden Dragon had no wounds, but after getting closer, he could see a fist-sized hole on his chest, and this drop of blood came from this wound.
‘So it was like that’ Lin Yun finally understood why the Draconic Beastman had suddenly gone crazy, it was because of that drop of blood.
No wonder the cowardly Xiuban would rush forward as if his life depended on it…
For Draconic Beastmen whose power came from their bloodline, the value of a drop of blood from a Three-Headed Golden Dragon couldn’t be assessed. That was the drop of blood of an existence rivalling Ancient Gods, one of the peak bloodlines of Noscent, even a mere drop would contain unimaginable power and secrets.
The Dragonic Beastman might not consciously know this, but the instinct from his bloodline made him long for that drop of blood nonetheless.
It seemed like he had no other choice than to help Xiuban get hold of that drop of blood.
Lin Yun was also curious to see what heights a Draconic Beastman would reach after assimilating a drop of blood from a legendary creature like the Three-Headed Golden Dragon.
Naturally, he wouldn’t act rashly.
“Xiuban, hold the vine tightly!” Lin Yun shouted. The Draconic Beastman was in a very dangerous situation. The seemingly calm void was filled with deathly fluctuations and wild mana. Let alone the Draconic Beastman, even Suyass and Lin Yun wouldn’t last long without the protection of the Planar Path Fragment.
After saying those words, Lin Yun started shrinking the vine.
The several dozen meters long vine quickly shrunk to less than thirty meters and the distance between the Draconic Beastman and the Three-Headed Golden Dragon was quickly widened.
“Sir” Panic appeared on the face of the Draconic Beastman.
The urge coming from the depths of his bloodline made the Draconic Beastman’s thirst towards that drop of blood surpass everything. It felt as if a voice was mumbling to him from the darkness, urging him to risk everything to get that drop of blood.
But at the same time, he couldn’t resist Lin Yun’s orders.
They had a soul contract, which put a restriction directly on his soul. In comparison, that kind of a bind was even stronger than the urge from his bloodline.
In the end his soul suppressed his bloodline.
No matter how unwilling he was, he had no other choice but to tightly grab that vine, watching the drop of blood getting further and further away from him. The Draconic Beastman could only stare blankly as he was pulled towards the Planar Path Fragment.
The Draconic Beastman had already thought that he had missed his chance to get this drop of blood.
But then, he suddenly found out that the vine pulling him had stopped twenty meters away from the Planar Path Fragment. He was just like a kite drifting in the void with the string held by Lin Yun.
“Sir! Sir! What’s going on?” The Draconic Beastman suddenly panicked and subconsciously believed that this was his punishment.
“Silence.” Lin Yun had already stopped controlling the vine, he had only fastened it there and focused his mind to move the Planar Path Fragment.
Lin Yun wasn’t controlling a spell, he wasn’t just controlling a Magic Tool either, he was controlling a part of a Planar Path! It could only be described as extremely taxing. Through the Crystal Scales he controlled the several dozen meters wide piece of Planar Path and made it move closer towards the cemetery.
The difficulty was unimaginable to most people.
Fortunately, Lin Yun’s Magic Arrays were roused to their limits and showed him several paths through the sea of corpses. Naturally, these paths were extremely complex and filled with dangers. If not careful they would collide with a corpse. It might still be fine if they hit corpses, but it would be deadly if they bumped into a Chromatic Dragon or an Ancient God.
Lin Yun didn’t dare to be careless at this moment.
Lin Yun’s mind was focused on controlling the Planar Path and simply couldn’t bother answering the Draconic Beastman. After scolding him, he focused on controlling the Planar Path, making it follow a winding route through the cemetery.
“Merlin, this is too dangerous” Suyass frowned.
At first, Suyass had already made up his mind and decided to always comply with the young Great Mage and follow his decisions to make up for Fran’s mistakes.
But Suyass now discovered that this young Great Mage was actually sailing this Planar Path Fragment into the boundless cemetery.
This discovery frightened Suyass.
This was too dangerous!
Thus, Suyass subconsciously reacted.
But after starting his sentence, Suyass realized that he spoke rashly…
It wasn’t an ordinary Great Mage standing in front of him.
Both his strength and status far surpassed the Great Mage realm, far surpassed even Fran and himself. Especially in this place, he was the one in control of the Planar Path Fragment and thus also in control of both Fran’s and his own life.
And now, Suyass treated him as an ordinary Great Mage and bluntly pointed out his error…
This was too rash.
“Merlin, I meant, would there be any danger when going this far in?” Suyass promptly adjusted his words and softly talked.
“How could” Suyass wanted to say ‘How could it be fine’, but he quickly stopped himself.
He had already been careless with his words.
Suyas didn’t know how that young Great Mage would react if he pissed him off.
