The beast was thought to be only a myth. It was said that there was a riot which involved spiritual beasts on the continent thousands of years ago. The Black Demon Eagle was one of the beasts that were part of the riot during that time. The Lord was the one who was responsible for sealing away all the beasts inside the dark forest at the eighth peak along with the other masters. It had been peaceful for a few thousand years now. It was unlucky of them to have met the beast at such a place. No one recognizes this beast except for Gu Xijiu as it was an extremely rare beast.
Gu Xijiu noticed that its fingers were as sharp as knives when it rushed towards her. Gu Xijiu had no doubts that she would easily be shredded into pieces if she was caught by the Black Demon Eagle.
She reacted very quickly and immediately teleported away to avoid being caught. She teleported behind the Black Demon Eagle and immediately swung her sword at its back.
"Clanggggg!" It made a loud noise as if her sword had hit solid gold. Gu Xijiu's wrist shook due to the impact, and her sword almost fell from her hand.
She had not left even a scratch on the eagle. Instead, she had triggered it to be furious, and it immediately turned to attack her.
Gu Xijiu had quick reflexes and so was able to avoid the Black Demon Eagle's attacks with her strange movement.
However, the other villagers were not as lucky. The other two Black Demon Eagles had rushed towards the crowd. They seemed to know that the women were the weaker ones among the villagers, so they rushed towards them!
Fortunately, everyone in the village was well-trained. After a few seconds of chaos, they had spontaneously gathered into one big group with the woman well protected at the center of the group.
The other eight villagers who possessed a higher level of spiritual power formed a team and started fighting with the two Black Demon Eagles.
Gu Xijiu had taught them this method of hunting several days ago. The method came in handy when they were fighting more massive size beasts. It was more useful to gather in a group and attack than to charge forward as individuals.
The villagers who were attacking the Black Demon Eagles were the elites of the village. They were very brave and strong and were some of the best hunters in the village.
However, they could not even sustain for more than a few minutes when they went against the two Black Demon Eagles.
The Black Demon Eagles were too fast for them! Moreover, they could become invisible. While they were attacking the villagers, the two Black Demon Eagles would disappear and suddenly appear from out of nowhere to attack the villagers.
The Black Demon Eagles continuously attacked the villagers. Though they were saved consistently by their companions at the last critical moment and had not been torn in half, they had sustained severe injuries and were bleeding out profusely.
Strangely, the blood that came out of their wounds was green in color. It seemed like something was infecting their wounds which made them itch like crazy while losing their strength at the same time.
A beast with a spiritual power of level eight was equivalently comparable to a human with a spiritual power of level nine. The evil dragon that they had killed several days ago possessed a spiritual power of level eight. Though more than ten villagers had joined the hunt that day, they were all unable to stop the dragon. Even Baili Ce had been severely injured during the battle. If Gu Xijiu had not shown up on time, everyone would have been killed in the fight.
Among the beast who possessed a spiritual power of level eight, the evil dragon was considered as a low-tier beast while the Black Demon Eagle was regarded as a middle-tier beast. It was even more powerful than the evil dragon.
Now, three Black Demon Eagles were attacking the village at the same time. Within a short period, the village had almost been destroyed.
Most of the villagers were beginning to lose their ability to fight, and there were lesser people now fighting the three Demon Black Eagles.
Gu Xijiu partnered with Luo Zhanyu and were now facing one of the Black Demon Eagles. Even though they were able to keep up with it, they had no spare time to worry about the other villagers.
Fortunately, they had Lu Wu with them. Even though it was small in size, it possessed great capabilities. It was swiftly moving around the battlefield to help them. Occasionally, it would have a chance to attack the Black Demon Eagles from behind. It scratched their backs injuring them, and this made the fight against them slightly more manageable.
