Under the surprised expression of the senior who had been restrained, Xue Ying applied slight force, and accompanied by a muffled bang, the pitiable senior made a large 180-degree spin and was smashed heavily into the ground.
At the same time, the remaining three lackeys realized something was wrong and charged forward together. They completed the summoning of their puppets within this short distance of two steps.
Xue Ying, however, wouldn’t give them the chance to utilize their puppets, and before they could even bring forth their puppets’ abilities, she flashed past the three of them like a ghost. In merely an instant, all three of them were squatting on the ground and holding their stomachs.
Xue Ying perfectly displayed what she had taught everyone from the Savage Class, and in the blink of an eye, the four Master Rank puppet masters had lost their ability to do battle. Only the senior with a dark expression remained.
“You’re probably their leader, right? I don’t care who you are, but you’ve infuriated me today!” Xue Ying clenched her fists and moved once more. At almost the same moment, a violet glow surrounded the body of the senior with a dark expression, and his figure instantly vanished from the chair. By the time Xue Ying reacted to what had happened, he had already appeared by Bai Xiaofei’s side.
Violet-grade puppet! Teleportation!
“Even though you’re extremely strong, as a teacher you’ve violated the rules of the academy by making a move on students. Based on your age, you probably just entered the academy not too long ago. I think you’ll be packing your bags and leaving your position very soon.” The instant he restrained Bai Xiaofei, the senior had the confidence to speak.
“Let him go, and you’ll be able to leave this place standing. Otherwise, you can prepare to leave the academy!” Xue Ying turned around and completely disregarded the senior’s warning. She emitted material killing intent.
“You can go ahead and try. Let’s see if I’m faster or if you are. You’d probably hate for anything to happen to this kid from the Mimicry Stream, right?” As he grinned slightly, a trace of gloominess appeared on his dark expression, and Xue Ying noticed a trace of envy – deep envy – on his face.
Perhaps he didn’t come here for the sake of the Bounty Ranking but purely because Bai Xiaofei possessed a Mimicry Stream puppet!
Xue Ying’s heart couldn’t help but sink once she realized this because if it really was this way, he might just do as he said.
“Senior, have you heard of a special worm that lives in the Infinite Mountain Range?” The captured Bai Xiaofei spoke abruptly while the senior and Xue Ying were in confrontation. His voice was calm as if he didn’t realize at all that he was in a precarious situation.
“Kid, you don’t have the qualifications to speak. So long as I make a slight move, you’ll only be able to dream of condensing origin energy for the rest of your life!” The senior had no intention of listening to Bai Xiaofei’s nonsense, and his complete attention was currently on Xue Ying.
“No, not at all. I think you should listen to what I have to say because this type of worm is called the Devourer Worm.” Bai Xiaofei grinned as he spoke, and a trace of shock instantly appeared on the senior’s face.
The Devourer Worm was a worm that fed on origin energy, was as fine as a thread, and was difficult to see with the naked eye. After the worm infested a host’s body, it would madly feed on the origin energy within the host’s body, but this process wasn’t obvious. It only became obvious after the Devourer Worm grew to maturity. Once mature, it quickly released eggs that would hatch into even more Devourer Worms and add to the number of worms feeding on the host’s origin energy.
Once that happened, it would be too late!
“The reproduction period for a Devourer Worm is roughly three days, and a Devourer Worm that has been trained can greatly shorten this period to…half an hour for example! I placed one of them on you the instant you touched me.”
Bai Xiaofei’s words hadn’t finished resounding in the air when the senior’s expression turned from astonishment to horror.
“Don’t utilize your origin energy to inspect yourself; that will only speed up the process.” Bai Xiaofei’s words caused the restless origin energy in the senior’s body to instantly calm down. The pain of being devoured by a Devourer Worm was recorded in books, and it could be simply described with five words.
Living was worse than death!
“Do you think I’m an idiot!? Can you even train a Devourer Worm?” His tone carried a trace of distrust, but this trace of distrust was obviously the final struggle this senior could make.
“It’s fine if you don’t believe me. You can continue this deadlock if you don’t believe me, and you can even cripple me. But there ought to be no need for me to tell you what will happen to you, right?” Bai Xiaofei sneered as he grabbed the right hand of the senior which was pressed against his neck, and it caused the latter to instinctively tighten his grip.
“You can continue, and I won’t struggle.” As soon as Bai Xiaofei finished speaking, the senior stopped because Bai Xiaofei was too composed. He was composed to the point the senior was unable to find any flaw.
“The place my hand is now touching is one of the places where your origin energy converges. The Devourer Worm I placed on you is right here. You can try feeling the area if you don’t believe me.”
According to what Bai Xiaofei said, the senior placed his attention into internally viewing himself, and his horror instantly dispelled the final trace of doubt he had of Bai Xiaofei. The speed at which his origin energy gathered towards this point had actually become faster!
“I didn’t deceive you, right?” Bai Xiaofei chuckled as he felt the force exerted on his neck became stronger once more.
“Take it out!!!” The senior practically roared these words. No matter how formidable one’s strength was, it was a joke before the Devourer Worm because one’s strength was only nourishment to it.
Bai Xiaofei was suffocated to the point his face turned dark red, and he spat out a few words with great difficulty. “Let…let go of me!”
He had no intention of giving in.
Along with the passage of time, it became increasingly difficult for Bai Xiaofei to breathe. Xue Ying, who stood opposite them, was prepared to do whatever it took to free Bai Xiaofei, but right at this moment, the senior with a dark expression collapsed.
He slowly removed some of the strength he placed on Bai Xiaofei’s neck, and he said with a deep and low voice, “Take it out. Otherwise, you’re dead!”
The senior’s threats had already gone too far, but Bai Xiaofei paid no attention to his rage because he knew that the senior with a dark expression had no other choice.
Sure enough, after a short while, the senior released Bai Xiaofei.
“Take it out!” He stretched his hand towards Bai Xiaofei as he repeated the words he spoke earlier, but Bai Xiaofei had no intention of moving.
“Right, Senior, I still don’t know your name,” Bai Xiaofei changed the topic of conversation, and when the senior faced him, the senior wished for nothing more than to directly tear Bai Xiaofei into pieces. But the senior could only endure it because he was afraid of the Devourer Worm.
“He Meng.” He gritted his teeth as he spat two words out. He was already prepared to drag Bai Xiaofei down along with him.
“Oh, Senior He Meng, don’t worry, I’ll surely take out that Devourer Worm. After all, I, Bai Xiaofei, am a trustworthy person.”
He Meng instantly relaxed a bit once Bai Xiaofei spoke.
“But not now. Before that, there’s a procedure that has to be carried out.” Bai Xiaofei grinned as he moved aside and made room for Xue Ying who was standing behind him with her fists clenched. He Meng had a bad premonition.
“Remember not to resist because utilizing your origin energy will speed up the process,” Bai Xiaofei said, and before He Meng could react to what he said, Xue Ying swung up her fist which had subdued countless people…
If one doesn’t take revenge for an enmity, one is no man…err, one is no woman!
