It was also quick-witted with more than enough intelligence to scheme against humans.
The warriors from second-grade worlds tried to use the beasts against those from third-grade worlds and thus contacted the tiger to work with them. They would tell the beasts where all the warriors from third-grade worlds were, allowing the Black-scaled Tiger to lead a horde of beasts to kill the third-grade-world warriors.
However, the beasts had to keep the warriors alive so the warriors from second-grade worlds could retrieve the Heartblood. After that, the beast could kill the warriors from second-grade worlds for the blood beads.
The second-grade-world warriors’ offer was accepted by the Black-scaled Tiger, but oddly enough, the warriors noticed that many of their own died as well and it was at the hands of beasts.
They slowly realized something was wrong, and when they investigated the matter, they were furious.
The Black-scaled Tiger was working with those from third-grade worlds as well!
Both sides provided information about each other, and the Black-scaled Tiger pretended to work with them.
It might have seemed that the tiger was accommodating all their requests, but the humans had, in fact, been duped!
The humans were infuriated. They cursed the Black-scaled Tiger for being shameless and despicable, but the tiger was not a human in the first place, having no sense of morality.
Everything it did was in consideration of its own benefits, it did not care what the humans said at all. It did as it pleased, gaining massive benefits.
In the end, humans died in massive numbers, and the inner region was filled with blood. Too many humans had died, and they could not bear their anger. There was too much hatred between all three sides, so they agreed to settle everything through one battle.
Practically every warrior in the deepest parts of the inner region rushed to the largest stage of the Nine at the deepest parts of the inner region. The battle immediately started, but the casualties skyrocketed dangerously. Those who saw that the situation was bad and felt like they would just end up being cannon fodder gave up and tried to escape.
Those two were among those that felt like they would not be able to gain anything when the large battle started and would die instead. That was why they were fleeing in such a hurry.
The skinny man sighed, saying helplessly, “It’s complete chaos in there. Nowhere is safe in the whole inner region, so I don’t even plan on staying here anymore. I even feel like leaving Chaos City. It’s just too dangerous here!”
“I saw so many corpses the whole way. Death is so common in Chaos City. I was so excited at the start, but now? I just feel exhausted.
“It’s much better for me to go to Cloud City. Even though the challenges there aren’t any easier, it’d at least be safer. As long as I don’t take any risks, I won’t be in any danger. It’s different here. Even if you don’t do anything, danger comes at you from all corners.”
After saying that, he sighed, as if he had comprehended something important in life.
He turned to look at Bokir. “Hey, I think you should just leave this place with us. You’re just going to die if you go in there.”
Lydia knew he was speaking sincerely, so he nodded. “Thank you for telling me that. We’re just going to take a look inside. If the situation is bad, we’ll come out. My skills are decent enough that I can take care of myself. I’ve been in Chaos City for so long that if I don’t take a look at the final destination, all my efforts will be for naught”
