Chapter 50: Bail out (2)
After that Long Yi again peeled out the skin from marsh human eating beast and wrapped it on a wooden stick, then extended it to the blood colored bugs’ sea. As expected, those blood colored bugs scattered to avoid it, but those marsh human eating beasts began to chase the stick.
“I got it, it turned out these blood-red bugs are afraid of the smell of marsh human eating beast. Long Yi, are you thinking of crossing this bug sea by wrapping our body with its skin?” Lu Xiya exclaimed.
“Hehe, smart.” Long Yi praised with a smile. And Lu Xiya felt extremely happy hearing the praise from her beloved person.
After hearing Lu Xiya, others also suddenly realized that this was indeed very good approach. This might be the only method to cross this blood-red bugs’ sea.
But very quickly Leng Youyou raised a question: “Long Yi, even if we can avoid the bugs, still how are we going to avoid these marsh human eating beast? Moreover this place is a marsh, there is basically no ground to stop over, so we’ll sink once we set our foot on.”
Long Yi laughed, then pointing at a big fellow in the middle of the marsh which was significantly bigger than marsh human eating beast, he said: “Do you know what that is?”
“Isn’t that also a marsh human eating beast?” Barbarian Bull said while scratching his head. His simple brain was not able to understand why Long Yi was asking such retarded question.
Leng Youyou thought for a moment, then said: “That should be the king of marsh human eating beast, but so what?”
“Nothing, just wanted it to take us across nothing more.” Long Yi casually mentioned, as if this was a trivial matter.
“What? Let, let it take us across, did you consider yourself a god?” Lan Tian who consistently had warm exterior appearance, couldn’t help but rampaged after hearing Long Yi. It was simply a fantasy to let the king of marsh human eating beast take them across this marsh.
“No, I don’t believe I am god. But how about we have a bet, if I succeed, then all your mission rewards would be mine.” Long Yi said with a smile.
“This…..” Lan Tian immediately stopped speaking. Although he didn’t believe it, but seeing the confidence displayed by Long Yi, he didn’t dare to take chances.
Long Yi inwardly shook his head, this fellow’s bearing was too small ah. It’s no wonder, even in that old age, he was still merely Advance Magician.
“Long Yi, if you succeed, then I will give you my share of reward.” Ha Lei said. He was not stupid, also he had come here not for the mission reward, and if he could pass through here, then there was no fear to be incapable of becoming rich.
Long Yi Looked at Ha Lei with a smile and said: “Good, you have said it yourself.”
This moment Long Yi used Ice silk to drag out several other marsh human eating beast. Then used the skin of these beasts to wrap his whole body from head to foot, only exposing two eyes.
Lu Xiya bit her lower lip looked at her beloved. Although she had faith on Long Yi, but when the things come to head* she still couldn’t help but become worried, because this however was really a place of death unlike other places. But Lu Xiya said nothing, merely used her eyes to transmit him encouragement and support. She didn’t want to divert the attention of her man. Leng Youyou too was same, she clearly understood how to use practical action to have confidence in her beloved. [T.L: *when the things come to head (idiom): at the last moment.]
Long Yi looked at two woman, as he sighed inside his heart: “If you have wife like this, what else would husband demand ah.”
Long Yi jumped while yelled loudly, then weightlessly just like a leaf, he glided towards the blood colored bugs’ sea. Just as Long Yi’s expectation, those terrifying blood-red bugs didn’t attack, but those marsh human eating beast smelled the bloody smell emitted by the skin wrapped around Long Yi. Then all of them raised their head, and used their moss green eyeballs to stare at Long Yi in the sky. Along with Long Yi fluttering forward, many heads bore out from inside the marsh.
And right now, Ha Lei and others were stunned, and simultaneously thought, “Could it be that he is using the float skill which can be used by only Master Magician?” But they immediately denied that thought, because there was not any float magic that was so elegant, floating in the sky just like strolling in the quiet and peaceful courtyard, no need to talk about unrestrained and fascinating. Even Ha Lei and Barbarian Bull, these rough men were attracted, much less Lu Xiya and Leng Youyou, these two little girls. Just looking at their ecstatic appearance, you would know it.
After gliding nearly 100 meter, Long Yi used up the force so prepared to take a land, and marsh human eating beast king was still 50 meters away staring at him. Long Yi slowly fell downward, and seeing their prey falling down, all the marsh human eating beast opened their big mouth without exception. And this sight of their dense sharp tooth looked very grand sight.
“Ah, Long Yi be careful.” Lu Xiya and others couldn’t help but cried.
At this time, one marsh human eating beast was too impatient to wait, it opened its big mouth and bit towards falling Long Yi. Long Yi immediately withdrew his both legs, then right leg suddenly stepped on the lower jaw of this marsh human eating beast, then once more flew in the sky and glided. And then he flashily turned around his head and displayed an OK gesture, making the hearts of two woman beat violently.
This moment Long Yi flew in the sky near king of marsh human eating beast. This big fellow used its two fist sized eyes to stare at him. Looking at Long Yi, it instinctively felt threatened, but it was very confident that it was capable enough to tear this human into shreds if he dared to challenge it, because it was king of this marsh.
Around this big fellow there was not any marsh human eating beast, it alone forcedly occupied very large space. If other marsh human eating beast entered its sphere of influence, then it would attack that beast till death.
Suddenly, Long Yi’s light as a feather body abruptly changed into a blur, and charged onto the back of marsh human eating beast king. The visual impact of that slow abruptly changed into fast was too big, simply a type of art of enjoyment. The reaction of conceited and arrogant marsh human eating beast king was too late, as Long Yi had already rode its back, so burning with anger, it suddenly jumped up in the sky and move backward and forward, as it attempted to throw off Long Yi. But Long Yi didn’t let its wish fulfilled, just when he landed on its back, he had used Ice silk to firmly rein in this beast’s neck.
The center of the marsh was in chaos, countless blood-red bugs were starlet, and began to fly up. In an instant, whole marsh was covered by blood-red bugs. Because of this, Lu Xiya and others were basically unable to see what was happening inside, there merely saw bugs’ wall.
“Long Yi, Long Yi.” Lu Xiya instantly became anxious and began to call out loudly. Seeing the bugs had completely surrounded Long Yi, she instantly was out of her wits.
Leng Youyou grabbed Lu Xiya, and said: “Long Yi is fine, as his woman, you should believe in him.”
“But he…” Lu Xiya chocked with sobs.
“You ah, concerned about this chaos, take a look, these bugs are flying in the sky in total mess, this proves that Long Yi is still entangled with marsh human eating beast king. So don’t worry.” Leng Youyou was much calmer than Lu Xiya. From the movement of blood-red bugs, she deduced that Long Yi was alright.
