Waking up Marcus gasped for air and started coughing, his body in pain, with every breath he felt his lungs ripping apart.
"Host, your body is in bad shape, you should minimize your movement."
Am I still alive?
"Yes, for now. If nothing is done, you will die in less then an hour."
Less than an hour? There is not much I can do then. But knowing you, there must be something?
"Currently you can't move, and your body is almost entirely destroyed, no potion or treatment can help, your only chance is to get a body constitution that will rebuild your body."
You mean… Everlasting Soma?
"That's the least expensive option."
But I can't buy it, not only do I miss the materials, I don't have any more energy, every ounce of it was burned in the last fight.
Health: Critical, Immediate Treatment Required.
Muscle strength: 0.5 (66.3)
Flexibility: 4.3 (93.6)
Speed: 0.3 (64.2)
His core was gone. In that short amount of time he used all of his energy to get as much strength as possible, not only was he taking energy from the Void Dimension, but he also used his core as a fuel.
All for this one shot at surviving.
"Host, while you were unconscious I contacted Mr. Ethan, and after he heard about your current situation he allowed me to unlock a function that is still being tested, but in your current situation it can help you."
"If you go to the shop you will be able to see that there is a new option called item exchange. There you can exchange items that contain energy for Shop Currency, the method is not perfected yet, and because of this there is a loos in the energy during the extraction process."
"If you exchange all of the resources you have on you and use the Immortal Lotus, you will be able to buy the Everlasting Soma."
Let's do it Es.
"Yes Host, you only need to take them out of the storage ring."
Looking at the shop interface, Marcus saw the Shop Currency increase with every item that Es absorbed.
Shop Currency: 1039
When it was finished Marcus had more than a thousand, the Everlasting Soma costs 1025. After buying it, Marcus was left with only 14 SC.
Soon he felt his body going numb, his mind became blank, and he again passed out.
Xiao Mei woke up. Opening her eyes, she saw Marcus's face, filled with charred patterns.
Remembering what happened, she pushed herself up. Freeing herself from Marcus's arms, she looked around. It was a middle of the night. In the sky, two moons were glowing with silver light.
Seeing this her body froze in shock. This is wrong! Where are they?!
Their surroundings were covered in rubble, for now, it looks like they are safe. Looking at her condition, there was a wound where her Dantian is. Her cultivation was destroyed when they were attacked.
It was her fault this happened; she could have waited and try to breakthrough later. She should've listened to Marcus's warning and leave that place. Now her cultivation is gone, and Marcus is…
Marcus… she should check how he is doing.
His skin was charred, body filled with cuts, both shallow and deep. The wound on his stomach was the most severe. How did he manage to survive? Her body was stronger because of the breakthrough she had, but Marcus… Not only did he Manage to survive, but he also must of fought the person that attacked them.
Looking at the wounds, she saw that they were slowly closing, given enough time they should heal.
Until then she will make sure that Marcus is safe.
Long Jiao entered the city of Higherground. By now subordinates of the Demon King investigated the scene, and unless they use something to see the past events that took place there, they will assume that he is dead. And demons with an ability like this are very rare, and Treasures that can do it even rarer.
So unless they meet face to face, he will be safe.
You may ask 'why run? Just say that the enemy was too strong! There was no way for you to win!'. That's simple. The new demon king is ruthless! He hates weakness. After the human invasion eighty years ago, during which his father died, his only goal was to take revenge on humans.
Since then his main focus were three things. First was to open gates to the human world, as many as possible to make their invasion quick. Second was the army that he will send through the gates, of which at least one hundredth died because of him yesterday.
Third was an elite force that will fight the ancient clans of humans, the very same clans that invaded the Demon World eighty years ago. Long Jiao was a part of this elite force, a bottom feeder, but still a part of it.
Now, if the Demon king finds about him being alive, he will be executed.
If he wants to hide, he first should leave the territories of the Demon King. This is already a problem in itself, considering that most of this world is the territory of the Demon King. The only place that did not unite during the Human Invasion is the Selante Archipelago. Safe in the middle of the sea the human invasion never reached them.
The only place where the Demon King has no influence. This is where he needs to go. But again there is another problem.
To get there he needs to cross the Deadserpent Sea, that is filled to the brim with powerful Monsters. If he wants to cross it, he will need a boat that can hide from them, or survive their attacks. And except the Demon King, not many people have them.
Long Jiao wanted to cry. So much hardship because he wanted to play around with a mere Human!
