Chapter 949: Joining forces!
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
This was probably something no one expected.
Who would have thought that the level one world esper Wolf King would become a legendary pseudo-emperor now? One needs to note that even those first-generation espers such as Tian family’s Old Ancestor are only barely able to reach such a realm. As for Wolf King, who was hiding deep in Huangliang Despairs, based on what he was qualified to be this strong?
No one knew why Wolf King was this strong.
However, everyone now had to face this problem.
Wolf King is a pseudo-emperor!
Liu Ping never expected it; otherwise, he would certainly not provoke it. Now that he confronted Wolf King in such a manner, it was simply tantamount to courting his own death. Su Hao also didn’t expect it, or else he wouldn’t stop Liu Ping from improving. As for Xiao An, she was even more shocked. Otherwise, she would have never gotten Wolf King involved.
Huangliang Despairs is a stage picked by Nine Snakes.
It was such an unfortunate coincidence.
They had played themselves instead.
All deductions and predictions were rendered invalid here.
At this moment, even though they were far apart, Su Hao and Xiao An both knew that if they want to survive and leave here alive, there is only one solution, join hands!
Nine Snakes, Origin Ability Association, Su Hao, all working together!
Only in this way could there be a sliver of hope.
Thinking of this scene, Su Hao could only smile bitterly. This was such irony.
Previously, everyone was still scheming against each other, and now they were about to become teammates? Su Hao’s expression didn’t look great. As for Xiao An, not only does she have to consider the cooperation, but also whether everyone in the Origin Ability Association would kill her directly regardless of their life!
One needs to note that there were such madmen!
“What to do now?”
Xiao An’s face turned pale.
Looking at the distance, watching the aura of Wolf King getting stronger and stronger, when that pseudo-emperor walked out of the palace, Xiao An knew that she could no longer afford to wait.
In front of the palace, the exploration team headed by Liu Ping turned pale.
When that aura emerged, everyone was so scared that they nearly peed themselves on the spot. Someone like Li Lei in Taihu Territory was already terrifying enough, and now there was such a man in Huangliang Despairs too! Or a beast to be precise. Nine Great Despairs, could it be each one of them had such existences?
Of course, if they knew that there was a heavenly emperor in Scarlet Forest, they would most likely be scared and pee themselves again. Since it was labeled with despair, how could such a place be simple?
“What to do now?” A world esper asked with a pale face.
“Run?” A man carefully suggested.
“Hehe, you’re suggesting we avoid a pseudo-emperor beast within Huangliang Despairs?” Someone sneered, causing the man who gave the suggestion to shut up.
This is Huangliang Despairs!
This is the territory of the wolf tribe and a sealed one at that! Being here and attempting to escape from a pseudo-emperor? Is that even possible? Most likely they would be discovered in an instant.
How could there be any chance to flee?!
“There is a way.” Liu Ping smiled bitterly and looked toward the crowd, “Huangliang Despairs is unique, and it’s impossible to use energy to scan. If we hide, Wolf King might not necessarily have the time to find you. However, even if we hide, how long could we last? Are you willing to live inside Huangliang Despairs?”
“Then, what can we do?”
Everyone literally felt desperate.
Seeing themselves becoming stronger each step, who would have thought they would meet a pseudo-emperor?
“It’s not that there is no solution.” Liu Ping took a deep breath, “Someone will be unable to sit still. The opponent’s strength shouldn’t be too weak. If they make a move… maybe there is a ray of hope.”
“Nine Snakes?” Someone asked in a low voice.
Liu Ping turned silent.
Everyone looked at each other in dismay. They felt that this was rather ridiculous.
This was truly ironic.
“Will they come though?” Another man asked.
“They will definitely come.”
Since Liu Ping made a decision, he no longer hesitated, “Unless he wishes to die!”
The Wolf King appeared!
A huge body made its appearance, and it was three times taller than Liu Ping, akin to a giant. However, it wasn’t like it was extremely tall, but the faint aura around its body made everyone horrified. It was the aura of a pseudo-emperor, circling around him; sure enough… they didn’t guess incorrectly.
“Humans again?” The Wolf King’s eyes were cold, “You all have such huge guts!”
“Again?” Liu Ping suddenly had his heart skip a beat.
What was going on with this word?
Could it be that somebody from Nine Snakes had already come here, but they were wiped out by the Wolf King? If that was the case, what was the need to struggle? Might as well send themselves to the grave directly!
“Those from Nine Snakes, they won’t be dead right?” Liu Ping said in a tone of disbelief.
“To provoke Wolf King directly, Nine Snakes won’t be that retarded right?” A world esper suddenly voiced out. Liu Ping glanced at him but didn’t add anything.
Didn’t he fit that description? To provoke Wolf King was definitely a part of an excellent plan. However, who would have thought that this Wolf King would be this powerful?
“It can’t be, right?”
Everyone’s face became uglier by each second.
The Wolf King just looked at them and sneered without talking. He wouldn’t be any cold-blooded killer. He was also curious about human beings. Plus, not leaving here for two decades, what has happened to the current mankind?
“Submit to me or die.”
The Wolf King stretched his right paw indifferently.
A dazzling brilliant light appeared, and it looked like it may burst out at any moment.
Liu Ping and the others were extremely nervous. It was at this moment, suddenly a melodious voice rang.
“To use one hand and exterminate humans, Lord Wolf King is indeed arrogant.” Xiao An appeared above the palace.
Liu Ping and the others were delighted.
Previously, both parties were eager to kill each other, but now they were so happy for the arrival of the other party. The appearance of Nine Snakes meant that they had a ray of hope now.
“A little girl?”
The Wolf King soon understood the current situation and laughed, “Just with you all?”
“Hahahaha, this is so funny!”
“Forget about you little brats, now we have one domain esper!”
Obviously, the Wolf King felt that this union was a bit outrageous.
Regarding this, Xiao An just smiled lightly.
As a grade S talent esper, her strength was heaven-defying to begin with. As a core member of Nine Snakes, she was an elite among countless grade S world espers; only three of them were the elites among elites of Nine Snakes! Only this way could they become a special member after the leaders.
Having mastered Art of Rejuvenation, each one of them had heaven-defying strength!
“You really think so?” Xiao An surprisingly wasn’t angry, “Soon, you will witness it yourself.”
“Interesting humans.” The Wolf King laughed, “There hasn’t been any decent human beings here these past twenty years. I won’t kill you all. After all, I lack a few interesting toys.”
Liu Ping and his team, together with Xiao An, looked at each other. Both sides were nervous and fearful.
Although it seemed equal, everyone knew that even considering the fact that Xiao An was powerful, even when Liu Ping is a level three world esper, they only had a slight glimpse of hope! Using Xiao An’s unique talent to create gaps, Liu Ping would then use all of his strength to kill Wolf King. This was the only way for victory.
Everyone was well aware of this.
It was just that would actually it be as easy as it sounds? After all, the gap of strength was too huge to be ignored!
This hope was only one percent! It wasn’t Wolf King acting carelessly, but these men didn’t even have the qualification for the Wolf King to look down on them. To him, they were mere ants. Imagine, even a level three world esper like Liu Ping dared not make a move, let alone a domain esper!
Would the Wolf King care?
Of course he won’t!
Thus, this plan shouldn’t have any issue.
Could they succeed?
No one knew.
Regarding a pseudo-emperor, no one grasped a clear concept of his strength.
“I will capture you all and slowly toy with.”
The Wolf King smiled. Terrifying power was condensed in his hands. Xiao An and the others were about to attack when another light flashed from a distance.
This time, even both the Origin Ability Association and Xiao An were stunned?
There was still someone else?!
In this Huangliang Despairs, there was still another party!
Footsteps sounded, and a middle-aged man appeared.
Question marks popped out in everyone’s mind.
“Hehe, based on my information, those entered Huangliang Despairs are all here. Who’re you then?” The Wolf King also looked at the middle-aged man with some doubt.
As for that sentence, it made both Liu Ping and Xiao An have cold sweat all over their body.
Based on his information…
Does that mean, when they entered, the Wolf King was long aware of them?
Then, the Wolf King was just waiting for them to come?
It turned out that the true fisherman was the Wolf King? No, to be precise, the Wolf King just watched from a distance, waiting for them to come here and die.
When they realized this fact, they shivered.
Who said that the Wolf King was a boss waiting to be slain in the palace? This was simply a wise and experienced old wolf. No wonder it survived the past crisis.
At this moment, everyone was paying attention to this middle-aged man.
It didn’t matter who the fisherman was, but the appearance of this middle-aged man made things turn again. Who was this middle-aged man?
The middle-aged man stood there indifferently.
“Ten years ago, I followed our fellow disciples to Huangliang Despairs, and we resided in the oasis. A few years ago, they left after they finished deducing the quicksand’s rate of occurrence. Only I continued to stay there.”
“I’m just here to ask whether they are still alive?”
The Wolf King looked surprised, “In the past, those batch of people, there was actually an exception? I purposely helped them complete the deduction of the quicksand and thought I could capture all at once with a net. Never did I expect…”
Everyone took a deep breath of air.
What a ruthless Wolf King!
He actually helped complete that note regarding the quicksand!
It seemed that this middle-aged man was one of those in the oasis! When they searched before, they didn’t go to each room and search carefully. It seemed that this man had been staying in a certain room somewhere in the oasis.
Liu Ping somehow felt a bit regretful. If he knew this, he would have searched more carefully.
If they found this middle-aged man in advance and found out the truth from the past, he probably wouldn’t have ended up in such a passive position now! However, since there were more people on their side, perhaps the odds had improved by a tiny bit?
The Wolf King’s expression was still as cold as ever, “Three sides joining hands and you all wish to defeat me? Simply naive! Perhaps I should thank you all for bringing me so much fun.”
The Wolf King no longer said any more nonsense and was ready to attack.
Who would have thought that a violent force would suddenly appear from the royal palace. A part of the palace immediately shattered, causing dust to pile up.
A strange cry echoed, “Leaking Wolf King, this young master is out!”
A wolf carried a person and charged out from the thick dust. When he saw the scene in front of him, he was stunned, “Huh? What’s happening here?!”
