Harland sighed. James was able to possess such strength at such a young age despite not having a master to guide him.
Unwilling to drag out the conversation any longer, James asked straight away, “Where’s the dragon’s blood?”
Harland waved his hand. Then, a transparent bottle flew toward him. A red liquid could be seen inside.
He handed it over to James and said, “This is dragon’s blood left behind by my ancestors a millennium ago. Legend has it that it allows one to attain immortality. However, no one could really verify the claims.”
James took the bottle and scrutinized it.
“Is this dragon’s blood?”
“Alright, then.” James put the bottle away and asked, “What about the information regarding the dragon’s whereabouts?”
Harland pulled out an ancient scroll from his pocket and handed it over to James.
James opened it.
It was a map
Harland said, “This is a map created by my ancestors. The dragon can be found in Dragon Abyss, a location that has been marked on the map. As for the specific location, I don’t know much about it either. I only know that it’s in the depths of the Pacific Ocean. Take this map and figure it out yourself.”
James scrutinized the map.
The map was huge. A few islands were marked in the middle of an ocean. With modern technology, finding Dragon Abyss should not be a difficult endeavor.
James took the map and said, “In any case, thank you…”
Just as he was about to leave, he stopped and turned to look at Harland, asking. “Could you give me a bottle exactly like this?”
Harland looked at him puzzledly and asked, “What for?”
James said, “That’s none of your concern…”
“Fine, I’ll get you another one.”
Then, he stood up and found James another bottle.
James waited patiently.
After approximately ten minutes, the First Blood Emperor appeared with the bottle James needed and handed it over to him.
James took the bottle and unsheathed the Primordial Dragon Slayer. Then, he pulled up his sleeves and carefully grazed his skin with the sword, allowing his blood to slowly drip into the bottle. After the bottle was filled, he stopped and catalyzed True Energy to stop the blood flow.
After comparing the two bottles, he put them away and turned to leave.
The moment he walked out of the apse, he bumped into Sky.
Blocking his path, Sky reached out, “Where’s the dragon’s blood?”
James pulled out the bottle filled with his blood and gently shook it in front of Sky.
Sky reached forward to grab it. However, James managed to dodge in time.
“What’s the meaning of this? Do you plan to go against your word?”
James said smilingly, “You misunderstood… Let us return to our rooms for now and ask the Blood Race for some equipment to store blood. Only then will I give you what I promised you.”
James turned to leave, while Sky followed close behind.
Soon, they arrived.
James said, “Go find something to store blood with.”
Sky walked out of the room and ordered a passing guard of the Blood Race, “Go get something to store blood with.”
At that moment, James seized the opportunity and hurriedly hid the real dragon’s blood beneath the pillow on the bed.
Soon, Sky entered the room.
James put the Primordial Dragon Blade on the bed and took a seat on a chair beside it.
Then, he pulled out the map and opened it, saying, “This is the dragon’s location. The Blood Race said that we can find the dragon just by using this map. Can you read it?”
Sky glanced at the map and shook his head slightly, saying, “I don’t understand anything. I can only see a few islands in the middle of an ocean…”
