Stepping over the demon corpses, Ji Fengyan led the two armies out of the underground world. The skies above the Plain of Corpses were strewn with stars and the bright moon. A cooling night wind swept away the smell of blood from the soldiers’ bodies. Everything felt as if it had been resolutely settled.
After arriving back at their camp, they discovered that the Green Nightmare Army had already returned to their own tents. Their earlier arrogance had vanished and they hid inside their tents like defeated roosters.
This battle had taken the lives of two Terminators and over a hundred thousand Blaze Army soldiers, leaving behind only about 60,000 men. Of this remaining group, at least 10,000 had died by Situ Ba’s venomous hands.
Lu Shaoqing was unable to reach the demon nest the same time as the others as the team led by him and Yang Jian were blocked off by a collapsed tunnel. They also returned to the camp a little later than the rest.
Exhausted after experiencing a major battle, everyone retired to their tents for an early rest.
As for Ji Fengyan…
She was not sleepy at all.
She sat in her tent and looked with a conflicted expression at the soft little ball standing on the table. She used her vital energy to seal off the demon aura emanating from the little Demon King. In this way, most people could not detect the true identity of the little Demon King.
Ji Fengyan felt a headache coming on. Despite the battle victory, she was unable to relax in the slightest. The truth revealed by Liu Huo sat heavily on her chest like a huge rock.
She would get into trouble eventually if she remained in the Kingdom of the Sacred Dragon as a half-human-half-demon. Although she had not used the World-Termination-Armour, just thinking about Liu Kai and the rest, who would be killed off by the Emperor because of the World-Termination-Armour, Ji Fengyan felt exceedingly anguished.
And this little fellow…
The little ball Xiao Tuanzi felt Ji Fengyan’s gaze. Its butt wriggled as it shook its tail. Looking back at Ji Fengyan, it opened its mouth to reveal tiny baby teeth. Although tiny, its teeth were extremely sharp.
“Hungry…” Xiao Tuanzi looked pitifully at Ji Fengyan.
Ji Fengyan’s headache intensified.
She instinctively turned towards Liu Huo.
Liu Huo gave a start and replied rather grudgingly, “It can eat the flesh of animals.”
Ji Fengyan heaved a sigh of relief. It would be unacceptable if she had to feed this little Demon King with human flesh.
Ji Fengyan quickly found a palm-sized piece of meat and placed it before Xiao Tuanzi. At the whiff of that faint scent of blood, the eyes of that little fellow lit up. It immediately started eating ravenously, blood staining the outer areas of its mouth; It was a rather scary sight.
“If you don’t wish for it to end up the same as the other demons, don’t give it any chance to taste human flesh and blood.” Liu Huo propped up his head as he looked at Ji Fengyan.
“Human flesh and blood holds a strong attraction to demons. The moment they have tasted it, it will be difficult for them to forget it. The taste of human flesh is not something that be replaced by any other foods. Although some demons have suppressed their desire for human flesh to avoid war with humans—there are terrifying consequences when such a suppressed desire erupts.” Liu Huo reminded Ji Fengyan as he could see that she had no intention of getting rid of Xiao Tuanzi.
“I will keep a close watch.” Ji Fengyan nodded.
By then, Xiao Tuanzi had already completely devoured all the meat and felt extremely contented.
After satisfying its hunger, it curled up into a little ball and rolled about the table in glee.
Ji Fengyan, “…”
This silly thing was really a Demon King?
