Besant shook its head helplessly. It was something unavoidable.
The forest was incredibly vast, and it was mostly surrounded by a dense fog. It was impossible to see anything within, and even divine senses could not sense anything.
The fog blocked out all senses, but there was an empty area in the middle. There was no fog there, and nothing to obstruct the sight.
It was a blood-red lake that constantly rippled. A thick smell of blood filled the whole place.
The Demon Spirit Beasts called it the Blood Lake. There were countless corpses on the lake. Some of the corpses were quite complete, while some had only skeletons left. The smell of blood and rotting flesh filled the place.
Anyone who did not have strong willpower would be completely shaken by the place and start vomiting or even fainting.
At the center of the lake was a round stage that was about hundred and fifty meters wide. There was a Demon Spirit Beast that sat there with its eyes shut. Other than having horns on its head, it was no different from a human.
It had white skin and even wore a human robe. If it did not have those horns, even Demon Spirit Beasts would not be able to tell what it was.
The Demon Spirit Beast had a dark cloud above it, and thunder constantly flashed within those clouds. Frantic footsteps could be heard, and the beast widened their eyes as it looked toward the distance.
Outside the Blood Lake, a beast with a snake’s body kneeled, “My Lord! The situation is bad! The thirteenth prince is lost. Those humans are too cunning. They ambushed us. The leader is completely unable to make a decision right now.”
The beast beneath the clouds was the king of the Demon Spirit Beasts, Diante. Diante breathed out dark coloured gas, and its golden eyes glinted danger in them.
“They’re all trash! All those assurances Karsh gave before they mobilized was just a load of crap. It was easy to say, but he’s useless at everything! What’s the point of having him around!”
The snake beast knelt on the ground, looking down with its body trembling slightly.
At that moment, it was filled with fear. Facing the king’s rage, he could not utter a single word.
Diante shut its eyes again and shouted, “Tell Karsh that he needs to deal with them in six hours! If he can’t, then he’ll be facing me!”
The snake beast immediately nodded its head frantically as it retreated into the fog.
Diante took a deep breath as it looked up at the thunderclouds.
It mumbled, “There’s still a bit left! I just need thirteen more humans! Once this is finished, I won’t be afraid of anything. No one will be able to touch me. Once I get out of the Demon Spirit Kingdom, I’ll be able to do whatever I want in the vast world!”
When Karsh heard Diante’s orders, its body completely stiffened. It merely nodded, not saying anything. However, it was obvious that Karsh was starting to feel the pressure.
He was panicking.
Six hours was not long, but it was not a short time either. If their opponents were not so difficult, it would be enough.
When Mijas heard that order, its face reddened in panic as it started to walk around in circles.
