Shi Yan followed Yang Lao, heading for a valley between two holy mountains.
When there were still some miles away, Shi Yan faintly felt a wave of ferocious and evil atmosphere from the valley.
Above the valley, extremely strong demon energy and Underworld dark energy came through unusual thick indigo and black clouds. The two totally different flavors singularly gathered together, and both seemed to be coming from the monster.
As if it was aware that someone was approaching, a loud roar that can shake heaven and earth was heard from the valley all of a sudden.
When the roar came out, varieties of captive demon beasts in the nearby valley prostrated on the ground in succession, they looked quite scared and didn’t dare to straighten up.
“What a fierce thing!” Yang Lao whispered with a helpless face, “It’s exhausting just to keep this demon beast. In only a year and a half, this demon beast had eaten nearly a hundred demon beasts at level three or level four. If we Yang Family didn’t have abundant financial resources, we can hardly afford to keep it.”
Shi Yan was aghast.
Demon beasts at level three or level four were rather precious. But this thing was able to devour so many high level demon beasts in only one and a half years. It could be imagined that how fierce this demon beast was. It must be not easy to deal with.
Its roar made even Yang Mu’s Double-headed Dragon hesitated and remained stagnant with apparent fear.
Double-headed Dragon was the demon beast of level six. In Yan Family, the demon beast at this level was already hard enough to tame. It was even fiercer than Cyan Blood Bat. In the past, a whistle from Double-headed Dragon would let the demon beasts in this area shiver. It was not expected that there would be a demon beast that could make Double-headed Dragon stop his movements.
Yang Mu had to get off from Double-headed Dragon, and gave Shi Yan a bitter smile, “Little Yan, as you can see, the thing is much harder to deal with. Alas! I really do not know what my grandpa is really thinking. Letting you to tame it really is a joke. Even I will tremble with terror when I meet that thing.”
Shi Yan became more surprised.
“Let’s go! Don’t let that thing look down on us.” Yang Lao sneered, “Since we, Yan Family, can suppress it, we certainly have the way to deal with it. We’ve consumed so many resources on it. They must be paid back without doubt.”
Shi Yan slightly nodded with a cool face and said: “I am really looking forward to it.”
“Be careful with it! Otherwise, instead of taming it, you would be devoured by it.” Yang Meng’s little face was full of worries, “It’s really not the thing to be trifled with. You must be discreet. If not so, you actually might be eaten with carelessness. I was so frightened by its strong aura as to be unable to move last time, even I was not close to it yet.”
In the valley, the roar of the demon beast came again. It seemed to be extremely unhappy with humans’ approaching. Once it smelt of humans’ scent, it immediately showed its ferocious energy.
As long as general warriors heard its fierce roar, most of them would be tremble with terror and afraid to get close.
Even Shi Yan was frowning and holding breath. He dared not let down guard.
Under Yang Lao’s leading, finally Shi Yan arrived at the place between the two mountains.
The ground was littered with bones. The skeletons of bones were quite huge. They were obviously bones of demon beasts.
In the valley, the ground was full of bones. At a glance, it was like a bone sea, heart-stirring.
Treading on the bones, listening to cracking of bones, Shi Yan felt goosebumps.
Strong demon energy and dark energy filled the sky above the valley. In the center of cyan dark energy and demon energy, a figure of demon beast was partly visible, baring fangs, brandishing claws and screaming to the sky.
The black chain as twelve arms thick, connecting with the two mountains, was winding around the body of the demon beast. Every time the demon beast swayed and struggled, violent sounds of metal collision would come out from the iron chain.
The demon beast swallowed and spat to the sky. Strong demon energy and dark energy filled in the sky suddenly disappeared in its body as sponge absorbed water.
The faint figure suddenly revealed from the bones.
Shi Yan had a look of horror on his face.
This was a huge demon beast like dragon and python. It had a ten meters long body, non-muscle wings and a belly full of scales. Its body was covered with ferocious arm length black thorns, flashing with black light. Its two huge talons were flickering sharp lights, seemed to be capable of destroying any invincible stronghold.
Its talons whacked the hard stony ground, bombarding deep caves one by one. Every time a strike hit down, a huge boom would be heard for the valley.
The most terrible thing was the demon beast’s head. It was just a hideous ghost face. From its copper bell like eyes, green light was emitted, bloodthirsty. On the general features of the devil, there were black thorns as well. They were like sharp swords stuck in its face.
The demon beast with ten meters body, as dragon and python, had a ferocious ghost face. Even at first glance, it would make people fear from the bottom of my heart.
Noticing someone was close to itself, it suddenly blustered again. A very strong ferocious energy was spread out as a storm on its own axis.
The ferocious energy was like the existent substance. Let any human’s’ souls tremble. Every place the ferocious energy arrives at, the bones nearby would actually be exploded.
Both Yang Mu and Yang Meng could not help stepping back a few steps, with eyes blinking.
Shi Yan changed countenance as well and refined Soul Consciousness, using the power of Sea of Consciousness to resist the ferocious energy from the demon beast. Finally he managed to stand there and be rooted to the spot instead stepping back with fear.
Yang Lao with a surprised face, stared at Shi Yan weirdly.
Since the demon beast had been here, there were a lot of warriors from the Yang Family who experienced how fierce it was. Almost every new warrior who arrive here would be frightened by it. They showed their fear, stepped back subconsciously and dared not to look into its eyes.
Both Yang Mu and Yang Meng were Earth Realm warriors. But again, under the fury of the demon beast, they still couldn’t help to step back.
But Shi Yan was standing motionless. It was abnormal.
Shi Yan was a warrior at only Disaster Realm. What made him remain motionless under the ferocious energy and the terror gaze from the demon beast?
Yang Lao couldn’t figure out and increasingly felt that the saying from Empire Yang Qing had evidences.
Shi Yan’s Sea of Consciousness waved. The consciousness was quietly spread one after another to resist the fury with Soul Consciousness power. On seeing Yang Mu and Yang Meng retreat a few steps back, he secretly felt surprised, but little rejoiced. He did realize that it was entirely because he successfully refined Sea of Consciousness that kept him away from fear.
Sea of Consciousness had many magical effects. One of the simplest effects was leaning on the Soul Consciousness power and withstanding the soul shock caused by ferocious energy.
Although Yang Mu and Yang Meng were Earth Realm warriors, they hadn’t refined the Sea of Consciousness. So when they faced to the ferocious energy from the demon beast, they couldn’t defend themselves with Soul Consciousness. As their souls were exposed, their minds and consciousness would be frightened. That made them stepped backward.
“What the hell was that thing?” Taking a deep breath, Shi Yan asked in a low voice.
Yang Lao pondered for a moment and explained: “It is said that it’s the hybrid of the Sky Ghost from Underworld and the Beast Dragon from Demon Area. They both are demon beast at level eight. Whether in the Underworld or in the Demon Area, both of them are famous. Dark Dwellers and Demon Dwellers can do nothing about them. This Ghost Beast was found at a magic place in The Fourth Demon Area by your great grandfather. It was just a cub, with only several hundred years old. But it has already been a demon beast at level six. According to your great grandfather’s saying, the ugly thing is the hybrid of two level-eight demon beasts, with unlimited capacity of evolution. It is said that if an opportunity arrives, it can at least evolve to level nine in the future. And with Natural Material and Treasure, It could even become a level-ten demon beast!”
Shi Yan was stunned.
Normally the demon beasts that could unceasingly evolve were extremely aggressive. The ones who could evolve into level-nine demon beasts were uncommon curiosities in all worlds. And the ones that were able to evolve to level-ten demon beasts were almost heard from legends. Few people had met them.
The Ghost Beast not only had the ability of continuous evolution, but also could become a level-nine demon beast. What’s more, it had the opportunity to become the sovereign demon beast at level ten.
Shi Yan had never met the demon beast at this level before, not even had heard of.
“No one knows how Sky Ghost from Underworld could appear in The Fourth Demon Area and give birth to Ghost Beast with Beast Dragon of Demon Area.” Yang Lao shook his head, “Even your great grandfather did not figure out how Sky Ghost could appear in Demon Area. And it is harder to know why Sky Ghost could mix with Beast Dragon. The name of Beast Ghost was given by your great grandfather. It was said that the thing had never appeared in the past. It should be the rarest curiosity in the nature.”
“Then how can we tame it?” Shi Yan murmured.
Yang Lao was stupefied. He shook his head with a bitter smile, “Don’t ask me. I know nothing about it either. Your great grandfather bought it back to Immortal Island and bounded it with twelve golden chains personally. He asked us to send a demon beast at level three or four to feed it every seven days. And he said it should be you to tame Beast Ghost when you come to Immortal Island.”
“Me?” Shi Yan was dumbfounded, “My great grandpa really thought too highly of me.”
“Well.” Yang Lao nodded with a strange face, “All of us don’t think you have the ability to tame Beast Ghost. But your great grandfather said that only you would have karma with Beast Ghost. I don’t know what basis your great grandfather had, but he commanded that only you could be allowed to tame Beast Ghost. Don’t understand his thoughts.”
“Great grandpa must be muddled.” Yang Meng stuck out her tongue cutely: “Brother Yan has never met it. And he has no experience. It’s impossible for him to tame it.”
“Never mind” Yang Lao thought for a while and said to Shi Yan: “Stay here and try to tame it. Well, do remember that do not close to it in 100 meters away.100 meters is its physical attack range. Since your great grandfather said that, he must have his own reasons. Though I have many methods to tame demon beasts, but no one is suitable for this one. Your great grandfather also had the commanded me not to show you any skills of taming demon beasts.”
When he finished, he departed with Yang Meng and Yang Mu, leaving Shi Yan alone to face to Beast Ghost in worry.
