The person appeared to be in a green robe and had a handsome face. That person walked right to the edge of Blood Lake.
Diante frowned, “A human?”
That person was none other than Richard.
He smirked as he looked at Diante in the middle of the Blood Lake. He narrowed his eyes slightly.
The prince was honest and had not lied. The so-called king really was there, and it was an important moment.
He did not hesitate to walk forward at all. He was only a step away from the lake itself. At that moment, countless red runes appeared around him. The red runes condensed at an imperceptible speed, completely covering the surrounding.
Cindy looked up at those runes and smiled, saying, “This is a perfect time, I wasn’t off by even a second!”
That was the Sky Locking Array. It was an array Diante put up to ensure he was not disturbed during the trial.
The Sky Locking Array would stop anyone from entering Blood Lake the moment it was activated. Cindy had stepped into the area right at the moment, cutting himself out from the world.
The trial was about to start, and Diante was about to enter its weakest state. However, it was still able to fight back.
Diante coldly stared at Richard.
It suddenly smirked, “Brat! What are you called? In so many years, you’re the first person who managed to get into Blood Lake alive. I can’t believe you’re so bold!”
Cindy raised an eyebrow as he smiled at Diante, “I heard that the Demon Spirit Beasts had a king. I was surprised, honestly. I’d already messed up all those guys, but the king had never once appeared. Now, I finally understand…”
After the prince had been subdued, it had told all its secrets to Richard.
The king had actually never made an appearance to protect itself. It was about to go through a trial by lightning.
Every half a year, the strongest Demon Spirit Beast in the Demon Spirit Kingdom would go through atrial by the laws of nature. The skies would send down lightning to kill the strongest beast.
Normally, that so-called king should have already died many years ago.
The Whirling World’s laws did not allow Demon Spirit Beasts that were too strong to exist. However, that king, Diante, had managed to find a way to stand up against the lightning and was able to survive for so long.
Cindy had found it strange when he heard that the beasts had a king. That was because it was completely different from what he expected. It went against the laws of the Whirling World as well.
The Whirling World had so many rules in place. Even if they killed each other or anything else, it was all within the rules. Nothing ever exceeded the rules.
After all, all of them had been pushed back to the final stage of the innate level for the sake of fairness. If any beings exceeded the rules, it would just be a single-handed slaughter without any meaning to it. Hence, the Demon Spirit Kingdom would send lightning down to kill the strongest beast every half a year.
Cindy raised an eyebrow and said, “I thought you were absorbing the blood to make yourself stronger, but you’re actually using it to defend yourself against the lightning.”
Diante had found a way to shield itself from the lightning, which was to use the blood of humans to shield itself. Then, it would be able to go through the trial.
At that moment, there was a layer of blood above Diante. It was very dense, and there was about fifty or sixty people’s worth of blood.
