Elder Nether Spring smiled in satisfaction and walked outside. However, when he reached the gate of the chamber, something seemed to occur to him suddenly. He turned around and eyed the Fire Ant King, deep in thought.
“I almost forgot. Brother, for an expert who is adept at making strengthening drugs, perhaps you have hidden some sort of strengthening drugs that can be triggered with a special password?
“For example, when part of the muscles on your body twitch in a certain pattern, the antidote serum and the high-nutrition drugs inside the body will be activated and help you resist the poison and the narcotic drugs so that you can regain part of your strength and run away. Right?
“To avoid such a possibility, I’m going to offer you another precious present.”
Elder Nether Spring snapped his finger and retrieved a piece of brand-new, coldly-shining magical equipment from the Cosmos Ring on his little finger.
The magical equipment was more than one meter long and appeared to be a beast puppet in the shape of a scorpion at first glance. As if it were made up of more than ten kinds of different metals, it emitted glamorous colors under the shadow-less lamp.
Dense spiritual stripes had been carved on the back and leg of the ‘scorpion’. The spiritual stripes overlapped and interweaved with each other, like thousands of swirls that were melting together. However, the stripes that made the swirls were different from each other.
The stripes were painted on a plane, yet they boasted a certain three-dimensional effect. Just one look at it was enough to make one’s head dizzy and their soul seriously muddled.
Nine marrow crystals had been embedded in the tail of the scorpion, which was more than one meter long. Manipulated by the rune arrays, vague mystic rays were rippling out and condensed into a stinger at the front end of the tail.
The magical equipment was so finely-made and exquisite that it did not look like a fatal weapon but appeared to be a piece of shocking artwork.
Elder Nether Spring put the scorpion-like magical equipment on the ground. There was a similar armband on his right arm. Mystic rays beamed out of the armband and condensed into dozens of control runes in front of his right hand.
Elder Nether Spring typed agilely on the runes, his fingers jumping fast. The scorpion-like magical equipment climbed up the operating table and lunged toward the Fire Ant King’s chest. Its eight limbs pierced into the Fire Ant King’s ribs like sharp sabers, and the tail pierced into the Fire Ant King’s abdomen and drilled deeper and deeper!
The Fire Ant King’s face was twisted because of the excruciating pain. He hissed nonstop.
The long tail seemed to be causing mayhem in his internal organs.
Suddenly, the stinger on the tail drilled out of the Fire Ant King’s neck and nailed into the back of his head!
The Fire Ant King shook violently.
“Don’t blame me for my mercilessness,” Elder Nether Spring said casually. “You are a super expert in the stage of a demon emperor and one of the best specialists in the field of strengthening drugs.
“I cannot guarantee that the barriers of the Blood Demon Sector are enough to trap you.
“Therefore, at a great cost and with a lot of trouble, I managed to get this piece of ultimate magical equipment from the Heaven’s Origin Sector, the ‘Venomous Scorpion Bone Biting Shackle’!”
Upon hearing the name, the Fire Ant King’s eyes suddenly became bloodshot as they bulged out of their sockets.
Elder Nether Spring grinned hideously. “What, you’ve heard the name before? Then you must know how awesome it is.
“Hehe. The ‘Venomous Scorpion Bone Biting Shackle’ is a piece of state-of-the-art magical equipment that ‘Solar Eclipse’ Jiang Shaoyang, one of the greatest masters of refining in the Heaven’s Origin Sector, carefully worked on for three years before it was finally produced.
“The eight legs of the scorpion contain eight types of conflicting poison that are of absolutely different attributes. Inside the body of the scorpion are two types of aggressive liquid metal that were developed from mustard-seed technology. Moreover, there are nine powerful bombs made of marrow crystals on the tail.
“Any one of the triple methods of attack is enough to execute an unparalleled expert, especially the fatal tail!
“Right now, the tail has tied up your spine, and its stinger has pierced into the back of your head. Should the tail explode, you are certainly going to die!
“The triple methods of attack are triggers for each other, and they are defended by a hundred alert rune arrays. All the methods will be activated if any of the rune arrays are cracked.
“Unless the hundred alert rune arrays that were devised and personally carved by ‘Solar Eclipse’ Jiang Shaoyang are cracked within one second, there is no way that you can get rid of it!
“So, stop wasting your time. The very purpose when ‘Solar Eclipse’ Jiang Shaoyang crafted the magical equipment was to confine the experts of the Blood Demon Sector in the demon emperor level!
“After the ‘Venomous Scorpion Bone Biting Shackle’ was completed, he challenged ‘Deep Sea University’, the holy land of refiners in the Star Glory Federation, with the magical equipment. Not only did the ‘Novem Stellae’ of the Refining Department of Deep Sea University fail, even ‘Supernova’ Jiang Sheng, his blood uncle and the well-acknowledged best refiner of the Star Glory Federation, was not able to crack it, either!
“If you have several days, you might be able to unlock the barriers that I imposed on your body, but can you unlock the barrier of ‘Solar Eclipse’ Jiang Shaoyang?”
Elder Nether Spring took off the control armband that looked like a mini scorpion and handed it over to ‘Mad Medic’ Lu Wuxin. He then walked back and patted the Fire Ant King’s hand before he smiled and said, “This is for your own good. I was worried that you would be thinking about how to escape in the last few days of your life. So, you can have a good rest now, my dear brother!”
Elder Nether Spring left the chamber without looking back.
The Fire Ant King’s head fell backwards as if he had lost the support of his spine. There was desperation all over his face.
More than ten operational implements protruded out of the two artificial arms in front of ‘Mad Medic’ Lu Wuxin’s chest. They brushed the tip of the Fire Ant King’s nose and eventually injected a syringe that was filled with bright green drugs into his neck, pushing all the liquids into his body.
“This is a dosage of ‘Supersensitive XII’. I believe that the Fire Ant King knows it better than I do.”
Still smiling, ‘Mad Medic’ Lu Wuxin rubbed his hands and said, “After my modification, ‘Supersensitive XII’ can increase a demon’s sense of pain by ten times. You will feel the agony of ten thousand ants biting your heart even if I do nothing but blow at your face softly.
“However, it will take an hour before the drug takes effect. So, excuse me for a moment. I am going to select the most suitable ‘toys’ for you, Fire Ant King. See you soon!”
‘Mad Medic’ Lu Wuxin blew at the Fire Ant King’s face softly and left the chamber amid hideous laughter.
The Fire Ant King and Neltharion were left alone in the interrogation chamber.
The Fire Ant King finally could not help it any longer. He bellowed, with depression all over his face, and he collapsed like a balloon that had been blown up.
“I’m screwed,” the Fire Ant King wrote with his demonic energy languidly.
“What’s wrong?” Li Yao was baffled. “Elder Nether Spring is about to leave the place. It’s going to be a great opportunity for us!”
“Did you not hear what Elder Nether Spring said just now?” the Fire Ant King said gloomily. “This is the ‘Venomous Scorpion Bone Biting Shackle’, a work of ‘Solar Eclipse’ Jiang Shaoyang that is designed to lock demon emperors!
“Elder Nether Spring has indeed seen through me!
“It is true that I have hidden quite a few kinds of antidote drugs and high-nutrition drugs inside my body. They are kept in special biochemical capsules and controlled by the movement of my internal organs.
“One of the antidote drugs even does not require any control. As long as I do not make a certain movement, it will be automatically triggered. The drug can resolve more than 99% of the venom and the suppression drugs of the Blood Demon Sector!
“It was meant to be my final trump card in this battle with Elder Nether Spring!
“But right now, even if I can unlock all of Elder Nether Spring’s barriers, there is no way that I can unlock the ‘Venomous Scorpion Bone Biting Shackle’!”
Li Yao blinked. “There is not?”
“Of course not!” the Fire Ant King said in agitation. “Did you not hear Elder Nether Spring’s words? It is made by Jiang Shaoyang. ‘Solar Eclipse’ Jiang Shaoyang!”
“Well Is Jiang Shaoyang a famous guy?”
The Fire Ant King was truly dumbfounded. He was lost for words for a long time before he wrote awry with his demonic energy. “Are you not an expert in the Nascent Soul Stage from the Star Glory Federation? How could you have never heard the name of ‘Jiang Shaoyang’ before?”
“Well, it is a twisted and complicated story. Why don’t you tell me first? What about ‘Solar Eclipse’ Jiang Shaoyang? Is the ‘Venomous Scorpion Bone Biting Shackle’ he built very awesome?”
“He is more than awesome; he is terrifying. ‘Solar Eclipse’ Jiang Shaoyang is a super genius who rose to fame like a volcanic eruption in the past ten years in the circle of refiners of the Star Glory Federation.
“He studied hard for several years in the Refining Department of Deep Sea University and the Refining Department of the Grand Desolate War Institution, two of the best academic establishments of refining in the Star Glory Federation, where he grasped the essence of the methodologies of the grassroots and the elites. Then, he trained himself through life and death with the army on the Grand Desolate Plateau for many years, thereby gaining a first-hand, profound understanding about the physical structure of the demons and our combat methods.
“Later, he invented almost a hundred kinds of magical equipment, including ‘Portable Anti-Shell Landmines’, ‘Heat-Sensitive Demon Catching Webs’, and ‘Super High-Frequency Pesticide Generator’. They are all the bane of demons beasts and demon soldiers. Very practical on the battlefield!
“As for the ‘Venomous Scorpion Bone Biting Shackle’, it is a piece of powerful magical equipment that he crafted after secluding himself for an entire year. The tool has been praised by many professional journals of the Star Glory Federation as the best confining magical equipment in the past hundred years!
“The young man also successfully broke out of the middle level of the Core Formation Stage through the production of the magical equipment and became the youngest refiner at the peak of the Core Formation Stage in the history of the Star Glory Federation!
“All the refiners of the Star Glory Federation agree unanimously that the ‘Venomous Scorpion Bone Biting Shackle’ is definitely enough to lock up any demon emperor. Nobody in the Heaven’s Origin Sector or the Blood Demon Sector can crack it by brute force.
“The experts of the Blood Demon Sector have all heard a thing or two about it, too, but after studying its general structure, we have to admit that it is indeed extremely tricky to deal with!
“I didn’t know that Elder Nether Spring had so many connections that he could even get a real ‘Venomous Scorpion Bone Biting Shackle’ to use on me!
“No wonder he was confident enough to leave me here alone.
“All in all, I’m done, and so is our plan. There is no way that I can get away from ‘Solar Eclipse’ Jiang Shaoyang’s ‘Venomous Scorpion Bone Biting Shackle’!”
