Tobias struck them one by one, absorbing all the powers of the martial artists in the dungeon. However, after taking in a little over ten of them, his True Energy was saturated. His entire body felt bloated to him.
A gust of powerful True Energy was thrashing about within his body. It felt like it was going to explode.
No… This is an exceptional chance. I can’t pass this up…
Tobias did not want to let go of this fantastic opportunity. He began to suppress the True Energy he had absorbed.
While Tobias was obsessively taking in True Energy, Thea arrived. She had been trailing behind him.
Thea did not, however, make a hasty appearance. She was aware that there were numerous traps and surveillance cameras inside.
It took her a long time just to pass through the Thousand-Machinery Formation quietly.
After entering the underground palace, she began her search slowly and deliberately, eventually finding the dungeon.
A number of Gu Sect disciples were stationed at the dungeon’s entrance. There were about fifty of them, and they all had swords in their hands.
Thea furrowed her brow slightly, getting lost in her thoughts.
She had a great chance to save the others since Lucjan was not currently around, so she held onto the Malevolent Sword and started to walk over.
“Who are you?” As soon as she appeared, the Gu Sect disciples noticed her.
Thea drew the Malevolent Sword and swung it.
In an instant, a Sword Light measuring a hundred meters in length flashed and struck down.
Those who were hit had their bodies disintegrate on the spot. Those who managed to avoid being struck were hurled into the air by the terrifying Sword Light and fell to the ground, where they remained motionless.
Tobias could hear the commotion outside from the dungeon. His nerves began to race.
He chose to ignore it and did not leave, since he was quickly absorbing the power of the others. For each person he absorbed True Energy from, he could reduce his cultivation time by a sizable amount.
An alarm went off as Thea showed up and started to attack.
In the room where Lucjan and the others were…
They had gathered and were talking about the dragon.
At that moment, the alarm sounded.
“Oh, no!” Lucjan stood up immediately.
With palpable anxiety on his face, he shouted, “Something happened in the dungeon. Go take a look, quickly.”
He dashed toward the dungeon.
The First Blood Emperor and Thomas, who was disguised as Ezekiel, followed closely behind.
After killing the people posted at the dungeon’s entrance, Thea moved towards it with the Malevolent in her hand. She arrived at the entrance of the dungeon.
With a slash of her sword…
The iron gate of the dungeon crumbled on impact. Then, she quickly walked over.
As soon as Thea entered, she noticed James, who was passed out on the ground of the dungeon, lifeless and covered in blood.
She also saw Tobias, who was still taking in the others’ power.
Tobias turned around.
His face paled slightly when he saw the appearance of the person who had just arrived.
“The Celestial Sect’s Sect Leader?”
He had never met the Celestial Sect’s Sect Leader before, but he had heard of their legend.
Thea cast a glance at Tobias, then immediately rushed over to James, appearing in front of James in a blink of an eye.
She held up James, who was lying on the ground, and hurriedly examined his injuries.
Bennett, who was sitting on the ground, spoke up weakly, “J-James… He… His power was all absorbed by Tobias. He also struck James and injured him…”
Bennett’s words came like a bolt from the blue.
It was as if lightning had struck Thea’s brain. She was completely frozen, staring at James, who was unconscious and on the verge of death.
This lasted for about three seconds.
“Ahhh!” she roared in rage as she suddenly lifted her head.
Her long, dark hair moved independently of the wind, standing up on its own.
The blood in her body was like a slumbering beast waking up in shock and going berserk.
Like hot, boiling water, her blood continued to seethe, releasing an endless amount of energy like an erupting volcano.
A terrifying gust of murderous energy swept through the area, rumbling.
