Chapter 47 – Poison, Become Mine!
Followed by a huge sound so powerful that it made the earth shake, a huge White Tiger clashed into a huge tree and fell onto the ground. A big hole could be seen in the White Tiger’s head. Next to the White Tiger stood a young man wearing a regular white robe with a Demon Soul in his hand. A slight upwards curve on his lips showed that he was satisfied.
This young man was Jiang Chen. After killing the Black Striped Rhino, the White Tiger was the fourth Mid Qi Hai Demon Beast he had killed.
Jiang Chen didn’t waste anything as he completely absorbed the Demon Soul. Unfortunately, after absorbing all four Mid Qi Hai Demon Souls, the sixth Dragon Mark in his Qi Sea was still not completely formed.
“The stronger my inner potential is, the more resources I will need. Looks like I will need to search for Demon Beasts above my current level. Besides, in order to reach the Late Qi Hai realm, I think I will need to form at least eight Dragon Marks.”
Jiang Chen thought to himself. Right now he had gone two hundred miles into the mountain, but he had yet to meet any strong Demon Beasts. He had also not met any Demon Beasts possessing special bloodlines.
“Although Origin Mountain is large, it is still located at the border of the Saint Continent. It’s very hard to find a strong Demon Beast here, and it’s even harder to find a Demon Beast with a special bloodline.”
Jiang Chen shook his head. This was the border of the Eastern Continent in addition to being the border of the Saint Continent. The natural energy here was weak. In comparison, the natural energy in the Heavenly Continent was at least a few hundred times richer.
The natural energy in a place represented the amount of resources which had a powerful influence on warriors and Demon Beasts.
Right at this point of time, a chilly wind suddenly blew out from the woods right in front of Jiang Chen. This chilly wind brought an intensely strong putrid stench, making anyone who smelled it feel like vomiting. Jiang Chen smelled it once and immediately felt dizzy, but the next second, the putrid stench was absorbed by the Dragon Marks in his body.
The Dragon Transformation skill was the skill with the greatest Yang attribute. It was the natural enemy of all evil Yin energies. On the other hand, the Dragon Transformation skill could absorb anything in this world; the things it couldn’t absorb was incredibly rare. This was one of the most frightening parts about this skill.
“Poison! The Dragon Transformation skill is truly amazing. It can even absorb poisons.”
Jiang Chen was slightly shocked. The smell came from a very poisonous being. If it didn’t then he wouldn’t have been able to make him so dizzy. But to his surprise, the Dragon Transformation skill could actually absorb poison.
Rustling sounded out in front of him. Jiang Chen started and saw a huge python coming towards him.
The huge python was 3 meters long. Its body was as thick as a round barrel, and it was covered in green scales. A pair of eyes stared at Jiang Chen like a death lord from hell, and its red tongue kept sticking out from its mouth.
Poisonous gas kept emitting from the huge green python, putrid. The grass and flowers around all turned black wherever it passed, instantly withering. This proved how strong this poisonous gas was.
“Green Hellish Python, Late Qi Hai realm!”
Jiang Chen’s eyes lit up. With his experience, he could recognize the huge green python with just a single look.
The Green Hellish Python was a very poisonous beast. The ‘hell’ in its name represented death because of the strength and intensity of its poison. Its body was covered by green scales that were hard to break. This was why it got the title Green Python of Death.
The Green Hellish Python was the lone king in the woods. The reason why it was called ‘king’ was because no other Demon Beasts dared to come close to it. Even the Demon Beasts that were at a higher level than the Green Hellish Python wouldn’t want to fight it. Its poison was too strong and intense. If the poison entered the body accidentally, the results would be awful. This was the reason why it looked so lonely.
Even a Mortal Core warrior would stop moving when he encountered a Late Qi Hai Green Hellish Python without even daring to fight it.
The Green Hellish Python was a rare snake species, and it was hard to find one. No one would ever expect to see one here. The Green Hellish Python in front of him was obviously attracted by the noise Jiang Chen made while killing that White Tiger. Right now, the Green Hellish Python had already decided that Jiang Chen would be its prey of the day.
“I wonder if the Dragon Transformation skill is able to handle the poison of this Green Hellish Python.”
Jiang Chen mumbled to himself quietly. The Green Hellish Python was a very horrifying Demon Beast, but Jiang Chen wasn’t scared of this. The Dragon Transformation skill had a lot of mighty powers that Jiang Chen had yet to discover. He needed to draw out and discover those powers part by part.
Besides, with Jiang Chen’s abilities, even if the Dragon Transformation skill really couldn’t absorb the poison of this Green Hellish Python, he still had other ways of handling it. The Green Hellish Python in front of him was a Late Qi Hai Demon Beast. If he could absorb its Demon Soul, then the sixth Dragon Mark in his Qi Sea would be able to completely form.
It was worth the effort!
The Green Hellish Python saw that this human didn’t try running after seeing it. A surprised look emerged in its eyes, but this was soon replaced by a cruel and mocking look.
The Green Hellish Python suddenly stood up, leaving only a small part of its tail on the ground. It stared at Jiang Chen from above. After that it shook its body, and a green colored poison gas like a giant net emerged from the Green Hellish Python, starting to fly towards Jiang Chen.
Looking at this, Jiang Chen’s eyes lit up. With his abilities, if he wanted to avoid this attack, the giant poison net wouldn’t even have a chance of touching him. But instead, he just stood on the ground without moving. He gritted his teeth and thought in his mind, let’s fight!
This was because Jiang Chen clearly understood that with his current level, if he couldn’t survive the Green Hellish Python’s poison attack, there would be no reason for him to fight with it. Once the Green Hellish Python became enraged, everything within 10 meters of it would become deadly poison, and he wouldn’t even be able to come close to it.
Therefore, he had all his hopes on the Dragon Transformation skill. He wanted to experience himself whether or not the Dragon Transformation skill was able to absorb a huge amount of deadly poison.
Standing still, the deadly poison gas unleashed from the Green Hellish Python had covered Jiang Chen. The poison gas immediately entered Jiang Chen’s body.
When the Green Hellish Python saw that the human in front of it didn’t move at all when the poison gas covered him, it was startled and immediately felt shocked. WAs this human an idiot? Was the human missing some nerves in his brain, or was his head previously squeezed by a door? This was just a dumbass, didn’t he know that once the poison gas entered his body he would be dead? Or was it because he knew that he wouldn’t able to escape upon meeting it. Was that why he gave up fighting?
No matter what, Jiang Chen’s way of reacting had puzzled the Green Hellish Python.
When the deadly poison gas entered Jiang Chen’s body, he immediately felt a heart piercing pain all over his body. This was the deadly poison of a Green Hellish Python. He didn’t dare neglect the poison. He immediately started circulating the Dragon Transformation skill and the Dragon Marks in his Qi Sea, making them furious like some ancient beasts. The Dragon Marks started absorbing the poison gas with incredible speed, and in just a split second, all the poison had been absorbed. Not only did Jiang Chen not feel uncomfortable, he was feeling energetic.
Jiang Chen started laughing out loud. He couldn’t hold his excitement. The Dragon Transformation skill really could absorb the Green Hellish Python’s deadly poison. This was awesome; this meant that he was immune to all poisons in the future.
Looking at Jiang Chen absorbing all of its poison and acting like nothing had happened, even laughing like a madman, the Green Hellish Python had a bad feeling. It had been the strongest existence in these woods for a long time, but this was the first time it had met someone like this, a madman. Its own deadly poison had no effect on this man. How could this be possible?
The Green Hellish Python couldn’t hold it anymore. It roared out loud and became very angry. It didn’t believe that some tiny little human could be immune to its deadly poison. It opened its mouth and spat out some green liquid.
The liquid resembled flying swords, and it came flying towards Jiang Chen with great speed.
Jiang Chen let out a cold hump. Knowing that his Dragon Transformation skill made him immune to deadly poison, he no longer had any worries. A Green Hellish Python who had lost its strongest weapon was just prey in Jiang Chen’s eyes.
Facing the green liquid attack by the Green Hellish Python, Jiang Chen’s arm moved as he punched out his fist which was covered in bright energy, the fist colliding with the green liquids.
Jiang Chen wanted to destroy the liquid, but the liquid was like some gooey substance. It just stuck onto Jiang Chen’s fist.
A burning hiss resonated from the fist. Jiang Chen immediately felt a strong corrosion on his fist. The green liquid was like a bunch of tiny snakes, penetrating into his body.
“What the fuck!”
Jiang Chen cursed from the pain. Although the Dragon Transformation skill could absorb poison, the pain on his fist still made him furrow his brows.
“Enough playing with you! Face your death!”
Jiang Chen shouted out before he jumped up into the air. He pointed his finger out like a sword towards the Green Hellish Python.
A huge golden finger was unleashed by Jiang Chen, and a large explosion-like sound could be heard. With his strength right now, he would be able to instantly kill anyone under the Mortal Core realm, including those strong Demon Beasts.
Right in front of him, the Green Hellish Python had an idiotic expression. It was startled, and it was still recalling the previous scene in its mind. That green liquid was its deadliest poison, but its opponent acted like nothing had happened, and this turned the Green Hellish Python’s mind on its head.
The huge golden finger, along with a loud explosion-like sound, appeared in front of the Green Hellish Python in less than a split second. The powerful Six Solar Finger which slightly emitted its power had completely locked down the Green Hellish Python
The Green Hellish Python felt a cold shiver down its spine and only reacted now, but its reaction was too slow.
The huge golden finger hit a point seven inches below the Green Hellish Python’s head. This was a weak points for all snakes. What was even worse was that it was attacked by the powerful Single Solar Finger skill.
The Green Hellish Python screamed out in pain. Its body was ripped into two pieces from where it was struck, and a meter of its body had been completely ripped into pieces.
A Late Qi Hai Green Hellish Python died in such a horrible way, its corpse still wiggling on the ground. The blood flowing out from its corpse was also extremely poisonous; the dirt turned black and all plant life instantly died when being touched by its blood.
Jiang Chen tried hard to resist the obnoxious stench as he took a small blade from his bag. He then cut through the Green Hellish Python’s skull and took out its Demon Soul.
There was green liquid flowing within the green colored Demon Soul. This was the source of the Green Hellish Python and where all its poison originated from.
“According to the Dragon Transformation script, if I absorb a Demon Soul with a special ability, I will be able to possess its god given ability. I wonder if I will be able to obtain this Green Hellish Python’s poison after absorbing its Demon Soul.”
Jiang Chen stared at the Demon Soul in his hand. If he was able to take the poison for himself, then he would have one more frightening hidden skill and be able to kill people without them noticing.
“Poison, become mine!”
After saying that, Jiang Chen swallowed the Green Hellish Python’s Demon Soul.
