Chapter 86: I’ve Won This Round
If we rewind to twenty years ago, the King of the Human would undoubtedly have given up everything and made every effort to help the passerby promote his ‘Rune Path.’ Because back then, he possessed absolute strength and had more time to suppress all dissatisfaction, steadily promoting runes throughout the entire human race, leading to a complete transformation.
However, he had grown old and had no time left.
He didn’t want to see the human race in turmoil, nor did he want to witness internal conflicts within the human race. Once the human race weakened to a certain extent, many top-level ferocious beasts on the main road would take the opportunity to destroy the human race. Who could stop that then?
At this time, the human race must not be in chaos!
The King of the Human could only sigh helplessly, “Why didn’t you come twenty years earlier?”
However, he didn’t rush to deal with Su Hao. Instead, he looked at the two Ironclad Dragons circling and wailing in the sky. In the King of the Human’s view, Su Hao couldn’t escape today!
He thought to himself, “Why would these two Ancestral-level ferocious beasts appear in our human territory? This is quite unusual!”
But he couldn’t fly, and he couldn’t deal with these two ferocious beasts, so he contemplated how to drive them out of the human territory.
Meanwhile, Su Hao was thinking about how to get rid of the King of the Human and the two ferocious beasts, “Perhaps these two ferocious beasts are my ultimate challenges. Originally, I might not even have been able to handle them, and now there’s also the King of the Human…”
He pondered for a moment and said, “King of the Human, let’s put our grievances aside for now and deal with these two ferocious beasts first, what do you say?”
The King of the Human looked at Su Hao and instead of answering directly, he asked, “Passerby, do you know what you’re doing?”
Su Hao nodded and said, “Yes, I do. I’ve studied runes, and I hope that everyone can benefit from them.”
Since the King of the Human was willing to talk, Su Hao was more than willing to go along with it because he couldn’t win the fight and couldn’t escape.
The King of the Human said, “I agree with your point of view, but I don’t agree with your approach. You don’t need to be impatient. Just be patient, and in fifty years, your Rune Path will benefit the entire human race.”
Su Hao shook his head and said, “No! I don’t have that much time to wait patiently. Furthermore, I don’t want to. The runes I’ve studied are not tools for you to dominate the human race. I hope that runes can spread, giving everyone a chance to choose and learn runes.”
“If we wait for fifty years, as you said, the Rune Path will indeed benefit the entire human race, but it will only serve as a tool in the hands of the aristocracy.”
The King of the Human sighed and said, “You’re wrong. Not everyone is suitable to be a warrior, not everyone is suitable to use runes. What we can do is to improve the efficiency of selecting talents and train qualified warriors to provide protection for the entire human race. You want every single person in the human race to become a warrior; this is an unrealistic idea. You have to admit that people are born different.”
Just at that moment, the two ferocious beasts pounced down, targeting Su Hao. They extended their claws, gleaming with a chilling light. Perhaps a single swipe could freeze him into an ice lump!
The claw of one of the flying dragons swung.
Su Hao erupted from his position.
His entire body flashed to the side, narrowly avoiding the claw. He then brandished his short knife, which gleamed with a cold light, and charged toward the underbelly of the flying dragon.
“Leap – Horizontal Slash!”
Su Hao’s short knife broke through the tough shell and entered the flying dragon’s muscle, but it quickly got stuck!
“So tough! Retreat!”
The other claw of the flying dragon swept towards him. Su Hao immediately pulled back the knife, evading it under the dragon’s belly.
Although Su Hao’s attack didn’t achieve the desired effect, it still caused enough damage. After he retracted his knife, a large amount of blood gushed from the wound, but it froze instantly.
The flying dragon was furious! It flapped its wings, trying to fly and search for Su Hao, but it felt a sharp pain in its chest. Its once powerful wings now felt limp, and it couldn’t take flight anymore!
On the King of the Human’s side, he successfully slashed the ribcage of the other flying dragon.
Both of them had turned flying ferocious beasts into land-bound ones with a single strike.
However, such achievements didn’t bring joy to either of them.
Because the two Ancestral-level ferocious beasts were furious!
The Ironclad Dragon let out a long roar, took a deep breath, and then spewed blue flames separately towards Su Hao and the King of the Human.
Two torrents of blue flames surged towards them.
“Danger!” Su Hao sensed the danger as the dragons inhaled, immediately fleeing and narrowly avoiding the flames. When he looked back, he saw that the area covered by the flames had all frozen, cracking into pieces.
Seeing this, Su Hao’s hairs stood on end. “Absolutely cannot get hit by those!”
While running, he glanced at the King of the Human’s location and saw that the King of the Human was also running around, avoiding the flames with great care.
Then he thought, should he trip up the King of the Human and use it as an opportunity to escape?
However, he quickly dismissed this idea because he was already struggling against one dragon, and if the King of the Human died, he would undoubtedly be killed by the two dragons.
“What should I do? Should I use the ‘800 Explosions’ to blow up the King of the Human and the dragons together?”
He thought and decided to do it. He turned his head and shouted, “King of the Human! I have a way to deal with these two ferocious beasts, but it requires your cooperation.”
The King of the Human was surprised, “You have a way? How do we cooperate?”
Su Hao said, “Lead the two dragons together towards me, and I have a way to take them down.”
“Good!” The King of the Human didn’t waste any time and immediately began to act, leading the dragons in circles.
Meanwhile, Su Hao seized the opportunity to retrieve his ‘800 Explosions.’ While narrowly dodging the dragons’ attacks and fiery breath, he injected his blood energy into it.
Preparing for one explosive strike to solve all his troubles…
Soon, Su Hao had infused most of his blood energy into the explosive. He was ready. He shouted, “King of the Human, lead the dragons towards me now!”
The King of the Human squinted his eyes, turned toward Su Hao’s direction, and flew towards him, with the dragons’ fiery breath closely following behind him. Then, the dragons were led by him, running in Su Hao’s direction.
Su Hao also ran towards the King of the Human while activating the countdown mechanism of the ‘800 Explosions.’
At the same time, he silently counted.
The two of them drew closer.
Su Hao yelled, “Let the two ferocious beasts get closer; we’ll guide them differently.”
The two of them passed by each other, running in opposite directions.
Su Hao carried the ‘800 Explosions’ and his heart started pounding.
The two ferocious beasts were too fast, and they couldn’t turn around in time. They quickly came close, almost colliding head-on.
“Now is the time!” Su Hao roared in his heart and then used all his strength to throw the ‘800 Explosions’ forcefully.
The ‘800 Explosions’ shot out directly, heading straight towards…
It headed towards the middle of the two dragons and the King of the Human! According to Su Hao’s calculations, detonating here would envelop both dragons and the King of the Human in the absolute blast radius. Although it was just the outer part, the theoretical destructive power was more than sufficient.
And he would only endure a tremendous shockwave; he wouldn’t die!
A perfect plan!
“I’ve won this round!”
Brothers and sisters, thank you for your support with your tips and votes. Each time I see tips and votes, I’m deeply moved; this is your recognition and encouragement to me. This world is about to come to an end, but our goal is very clear: to learn new knowledge in every world, accumulate step by step, achieve an evolution in cognitive thinking, and ultimately become the first deity in the universe. In the world of warriors, it’s just a small stepping stone, and its purpose in this world has already been achieved. No matter how many worlds we traverse in the future, it will be enough to protect ourselves. As for why Su Hao didn’t advance to Grandmaster, it was already mentioned earlier in the story. Grandmaster and Ancestor are essentially a form of cheating, transplanting external objects to strengthen oneself, which becomes meaningless when you change worlds. So there’s no need to dwell on it. In the next world, Su Hao will undergo a true transformation from the bottom up.
