“Even before they died, they probably never expected that they would just be crops to be harvested in the eyes of the top warriors. The top warriors had merely shouted and attacked a few times, but it was the others who lost their lives.”
Violet was speechless for a long time after hearing that. He really had underestimated human nature.
Just like Valentina had said, the true winners of the battle were those that stood at the time. They used their authority to carry out their despicable methods. however they wanted to, killing others to gain their keys.
Valentina smiled as he narrowed his eyes and continued, “We need to wait! Once they leave, we’ll…”
Two hours later, the Black-scaled Tiger returned to its den.
It was a small valley, and it was at the center of the valley. It had used its sharp claws to dig out a cave. There was some wild grass he had gotten from somewhere. After that intense battle, it had obtained a few dozen blood beads.
It absorbed a portion of it, and there were still twenty left. It felt like it would definitely reach a new level of power after absorbing fifty of them.
It started to lick the wounds on its body. Even if it was the strongest among all the beasts, it had still failed to avoid getting injured. After all, the attacks that were flying around did not care who they hit.
However, it had only suffered some minor injuries. It would be able to recover after some rest. The beasts that were in Chaos City were not able to leave the place due to some restrictions.
The most terrifying thing was that they would also fall into a deep slumber when the Whirling World closed, all the way until it was opened again and humans entered the world.
Just thinking about that made the tiger bristle with anger and hatred.
Its level of intelligence was on par with humans. There were some things that it realized just thinking about it.
It would not let those people get whatever they wanted! Even the heroes that created the Whirling World would not be able to subdue it!
It had just been a small beast initially, being born in this place.
Only a small fraction of its memories before he gained sentience remained, but those memories were enough to cause a chill through its body.
It could remember many other smaller beasts just like it. However, they had all been slaughtered by humans. Less than a tenth of them survived. It had started life in the outer region of Chaos City. As it slowly improved and gained the ability to protect itself, it slowly advanced inward.
Battle after battle, it had been fortunate enough to survive all this time, killing quite a few humans and being granted blood beads. Its power and intelligence slowly increased after absorbing them.
It was slowly beginning to understand that it only existed for the sake of training humans.
It was like a large grindstone that could kill the weak and make the strong even stronger. However, it was not willing to resign itself to that fate. It wanted to keep growing stronger. It wanted to break through its limits. Then, no human would be able to beat it!
No one would be able to treat it as a stepping stone. It would no longer be a training post for the humans, and the humans would be its stepping stone to the top!
Just thinking about that, the tiger’s eyes shone. It was suddenly filled with hope for the future.
Right at that moment, it could suddenly hear soft footsteps in the distance.
As one of the strongest beasts, it had a very high level of perception. It could hear even the most minute sounds from a great distance.
The tiger suddenly looked up, and its eyes were focused right on where the sound was from. It could see a green-robed man slowly walking toward it from a distance.
