The 1st Mysterious Demon was slightly tempted by the offer.
Even though obtaining the Great Obliteration Millstone would be very good, Luo Yunyang’s obstruction and the harsh conditions inside the Great Obliteration Millstone had lowered his confidence in seizing the Great Obliteration Millstone by himself greatly.
However, this would be better than going back empty-handed, as the things obtainable under these conditions still tempted the 1st Mysterious Demon. He hesitated for a moment before agreeing to the conditions. “Alright, I can agree to these terms.”
Now, although the Divine Incarcerate Race wanted the Great Obliteration Millstone and would even gain a great advantage thanks to it, he could still receive a supreme cultivation technique.
Furthermore, according to the Divine Incarcerate Race elite, there would be great benefits after entering the Great Obliteration Millstone.
“But you have to swear that there is no mistake in the technique you’re giving me.”
“Tian Yuzi, you wouldn’t lie to me about this kind of thing, right?”
Tian Yuzi’s expression quickly recovered as he looked at the 1st Mysterious Demon and assured him. “It’s perfectly normal that you do not trust me, but I can swear by it. I do not trust you either, 1st Mysterious Demon.”
“Thus, I want you to swear by your Mysterious Yuan Vitality that if you do not give the Divine Incarcerate Race the Great Obliteration Millstone, you’ll never be able to become an Almighty!” Tian Yuzi said with resolute decisiveness.
The 1st Mysterious Demon’s expression turned cold once again after he listened to that. It had been a very long time since he’d had to face such a raw threat.
However, he felt at ease about it. He knew that if Tian Yuzi dared to coerce him in such a manner, it meant that Tian Yuzi was also very confident about this.
“Alright, I swear too!”
After reaching an agreement with Tian Yuzi, Tian Yuzi began to transmit an incantation to the 1st Mysterious Demon very carefully.
The 1st Mysterious Demon was undoubtedly a top-level existence in the Mysterious Underworld Race in terms of comprehension abilities. Although the incantation was very abstruse, the 1st Mysterious Demon was able to comprehend it in a very short time.
A while later, the 1st Mysterious Demon had a faint look of excitement on his face. He looked at the gigantic millstone that was undulating with black Mysterious Qi and guffawed. “Luo Yunyang, the Great Obliteration Millstone is right in front of us. Would you dare to compete for it?”
Luo Yunyang did not know about the conversation that had occurred between the 1st Mysterious Demon and the Divine Incarcerate Race’s Tian Yuzi. However, he was able to sense the 1st Mysterious Demon’s confidence based on the way he spoke.
After glancing at the humongous black millstone, he made his decision.
Although the Great Obliteration Millstone was full of uncertain dangers, Luo Yunyang still decided to head inside to explore, not because he shouldn’t flinch when a precious treasure was on the line, but because Luo Yunyang had the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast’s clones.
Even if his physical body was destroyed, it was still merely a body. Thanks to the characteristics of the Chaotic Four-Origin Beast, he could still conjure another body.
However, it would come at a significant cost, especially in terms of his attribute regulator.
Still, it was very hard for Luo Yunyang to withdraw without putting up a fight. Furthermore, he would be held accountable if he returned to Hong Meng Sacred Hall empty-handed.
Hence, after mulling this over for a moment, Luo Yunyang made his decision. He quickly reduced his Chaotic Four-Origin Beast clone to a small size and placed it in a small jade box.
This jade box was, in fact, useless. It was simply a cover so that other people wouldn’t see what was inside the box.
“Lady Li, I don’t know what the result of this battle for the Great Obliteration Millstone is going to be, but this is an important item I have acquired, so please help me keep it safe.”
Li Jiuyue looked at Luo Yunyang and hesitated for a moment before reassuring him. “Certainly, I will keep your item safe.”
Luo Yunyang nodded at Li Jueyue before nodding at the 1st Mysterious Demon and flying towards the huge millstone.
The 1st Mysterious Demon laughed heartily. He felt that he was well-positioned to win after receiving the technique from the Divine Incarcerate Race, but it would be even better if he could kill off a formidable enemy like Luo Yunyang.
Now that Luo Yunyang had boarded that Great Obliteration Millstone, he had also placed his life on it.
The moment the two men took flight into the sky, the two huge millstones that were moving closer to each other began to pull apart slowly and put some distance between them. Then, Luo Yunyang and the 1st Mysterious Demon landed on the millstone almost at the same time.
The 1st Mysterious Demon and Luo Yunyang were almost in the two opposite corners of the Great Obliteration Millstone. Right at the moment that they landed, the distance between the two millstones, which had originally spread out, began to be shortened again gradually.
Luo Yunyang didn’t pay too much attention to the 1st Mysterious Demon. Instead, he looked at his own attributes immediately after landing on the millstone.
There was no difference in his attributes, and the attribute regulator was also working normally. This made Luo Yunyang feel very relieved.
As he hesitated and wondered whether he should adjust his various attributes, the millstone formed by the Mysterious Qi began to turn slowly.
Although the rotation was happening very slowly, Luo Yunyang felt that a great looming power restricted his body on the millstone.
He actually had a feeling that he was already under the influence of a strong pulling and crushing force created by the gentle rotation of the millstone.
Although this was the first time he was seeing such a huge millstone, Luo Yunyang knew that the more things like this happened, the more he had to resist being crushed into powder by that gigantic millstone.
Just as Luo Yunyang was having a deluge of different thoughts, he suddenly saw a glittering, translucent luster shrouding the body of the 1st Mysterious Demon, who was sitting not too far away from him.
The 1st Mysterious Demon seemed to be bathed in a hallowed glow.
Although Luo Yunyang didn’t know what kind of technique the 1st Mysterious Demon was using, his gut feeling told him that the technique of the 1st Mysterious Demon was incomparably suitable to deal with the millstone.
Could the 1st Mysterious Demon possess a certain technique that could resist the Great Obliteration Millstone? Luo Yunyang immediately cast the thought aside when it popped up in his head.
Although he didn’t know what kind of tricks the 1st Mysterious Demon was playing, he clearly knew that he had run out of options, as he was already on the millstone.
The millstone continued its gradual rotation while applying a massive crushing force on Luo Yunyang’s body. It actually made him feel as if his physical body, which was as tough as a precious treasure, was on the brink of collapsing.
Luo Yunyang’s physical body had reached the Heavenly Venerate level and would not even budge if a first-level Heavenly Venerate were to strike it at full force. However, he had just entered the Great Obliteration Millstone so his body was already about to split open.
Luo Yunyang felt stiff throughout his entire body after the millstone completed a rotation. Although his body did not collapse this time, the crushing force still made him very uncomfortable.
While Luo Yunyang was breathing heavily, the upper millstone and lower millstone began to draw closer to one another almost at the same time.
Although the distance covered by the millstones did not seem significant to Luo Yunyang, the crushing force formed by the rotation of the Great Obliteration Millstone was suddenly doubled.
Endure, endure, endure!
Luo Yunyang could only urge his body to endure the rotation of the millstones.
Droplets that looked like both sweat and blood trickled down Luo Yunyang’s body, which had lost a full kilo compared to when he had entered the Great Obliteration Millstone.
Luo Yunyang did not feel the significant changes occurring in his body, but the people watching the competition between Luo Yunyang and the 1st Mysterious Demon could feel them.
Xuantian Zhaoxing was watching the scene fervently, as if he had an impulse to rush into the huge millstone and let the millstone crush his body.
The droplets that trickled down Luo Yunyang’s body looked like blood and sweat, making Xuantian Zhaoxing think that this was a rather good opportunity. His cultivation might improve by leaps and bounds if he was obliterated in such a fashion.
However, he also felt the danger. He would be directly crushed into a fine powder if he could not endure the gigantic millstone.
As for Tian Yuzi and the rest, they were all looking closely at the 1st Mysterious Demon. Unlike the changes happening to Luo Yunyang’s body, the 1st Mysterious Demon’s body remained relatively the same and the luster shrouding him seemed even brighter than before.
“Tian Yuzi, is the 1st Mysterious Demon going to be fine?” the 3rd Mysterious Demon asked. Following the 2nd Mysterious Demon’s death, his status had changed greatly.
Tian Yuzi responded pridefully, “What is there to worry about? The Human Race should be worrying instead. This time, he will have to pay the price for his arrogance.”
After Tian Yuzi spoke, the two millstones formed by the condensation of Mysterious Qi began to contract again.
Along with that contraction, the bodies of Luo Yunyang and the 1st Mysterious Demon began to get distorted.
The blood-like droplets that trickled down Luo Yunyang’s body did not increase, but their color became much more intense.
Suddenly, Luo Yunyang felt every inch of his muscles get crushed directly by the rotating force.
Was the spirit consciousness going to be crushed after the physical body was done for?
Luo Yunyang’s expression became more solemn than ever as thoughts flooded his head. He took a deep breath before adjusting the Constitution Attributes of his body.
He dared not increase a lot of his Constitution Attributes at once, as he was afraid that doing so would be counterintuitive and harmful to his physical body. Hence, he opted to increase his attributes slowly.
Third turn, fourth turn, fifth turn…
Whenever the millstone completed a turn, Luo Yunyang’s physical body would shrink a little. It felt like his body was on the verge of collapsing every time it shrank!
