Xiang Nan returned to the Drunken Immortal Pavilion. He went to the room where the children were sleeping in the backyard and found that the group of youngsters were still asleep. He swept his eyes and found that there were quite a few of them. Only then did he feel relieved.
He raised his head to look at the faint remnants of the demonic aura left behind by the corner. They were much thinner and almost indiscernible.
Xiang Nan sat down cross-legged and waited silently. At the same time, he began to circulate the Nine Purities Cosmos Skill .
This technique could strengthen one's body and bring about an all-round improvement to martial artists. After circulating the first to ninth levels of the Nine Purities for a whole cycle, one could increase one's strength even more.
This enhancement was practically unlimited. Every time he circulated it, it would increase once, and along with that, his realm would also increase.
Such a terrifying cultivation technique was rare in the entire world of martial arts.
Even Xiang Nan himself found it hard to imagine what kind of expert he would be if he didn't do anything and just sat there and cultivated for a hundred years.
Unfortunately, this idea was not realistic.
Just as Xiang Nan was practicing his martial arts while he was imagining things in his heart, his extremely keen senses could sense a faint demonic aura fluctuation in the air.
Xiang Nan took a deep breath, causing his heartbeat, breathing, and blood flow to drop to a minimum, and stopped the circulation of the Nine Purities Cosmos Skill .
At this moment, the room was pitch black, and he fluttered back to a darker corner, not even illuminating the moonlight.
It could be felt that the demonic aura had hung in the sky for a long time, but it did not come down. It seemed that the demon race was still extremely vigilant.
Xiang Nan was very patient and waited quietly.
After half an incense stick of time had passed, the demonic energy finally began to approach again.
Then, a faint black gas appeared in a corner of the roof. Then, a tentacle actually pierced through the roof.
This strange tentacle did not destroy the roof, but penetrated it, just like when Xiang Nan used the Void Stone to merge with something.
Upon seeing the tentacle, Xiang Nan's heart skipped a beat.
The tentacle stretched out, rolled up a child on the bed, and was about to pull it up.
"Sixth level of Origin Return?" Xiang Nan judged the realm of the demon race according to the demonic aura and floated out of the window silently. Then, he circled around the roof.
He saw an octopus-like but not octopus-like monster floating in the night sky.
This thing had an incomparably large round head. The bumps on its head were all protruding, and there were six pairs of eyes that were distributed over its head, front face, and back head.
Below the head, there were eight tentacles. Unlike the octopus tentacles, there were no suckers on its tentacles, only a layer of soft black hair.
Xiang Nan's understanding of demonic beasts and demon races had never been deep. He only knew the most familiar and "classic" demonic beasts and demon races. This was the first time he had seen such a thing in front of him.
That thing was completely absorbed in stealing the child. After Xiang Nan looked at it for three seconds, he suddenly noticed Xiang Nan's existence.
The creature let out a strange cry and immediately put down the child on the tentacle and fled into the distance.
This creature did not fly in the sky when it escaped, but rather "swam". Its eight tentacles formed a circle, and as soon as it retracted and retracted its body, it rushed several hundred meters into the distance.
Xiang Nan spread out his Yuan Qi feathered wings and flapped his wings to quickly chase after him.
"Monster, you should surrender and be captured!" Lightning flashed on Xiang Nan's wings as he charged over a short distance and caught up with the monster in an instant.
Seeing that the monster could not escape, he raised a tentacle and fiercely stabbed at Xiang Nan.
The tentacle was originally very soft, but when it attacked, it became incomparably hard, like a sharp sword. When the tentacle pierced towards Xiang Nan, it actually carried the sound of the wind breaking through the air.
Xiang Nan had the intention to test out the details of this item, so he took out the Dragon Blood Saber. Without using Yuan Qi, he fiercely slashed at the rapidly stabbing tentacles.
When the Dragon Blood Saber landed on the tentacles, a spark actually burst out, but it did not break.
When the monster sensed Xiang Nan's strength, it was also shocked. It hurriedly raised its four tentacles and stabbed them at Xiang Nan.
The attacks of the four tentacles were much denser, piercing through the air like an illusion, extremely fast.
Xiang Nan's right hand trembled and Yuan Qi poured into the giant saber. This time, he used his strong Yuan Qi to slash out and almost cut off a tentacle.
The monster let out a miserable scream and immediately fled.
Whether it was the Nine Transformations of Thunder, the Nine Purities Cosmos Skill , the Sun God Technique, his Lightning Rushing Saber Technique, or the Dragon Blood Saber in his hand, all of the martial skills Xiang Nan practiced were items that had just reached the Yang Realm.
These things were the most restraining to the evil demons. If he could inflict 100% damage on humans with the same slash, then he could inflict at least 15% damage on monsters.
"Still running?" Xiang Nan frowned as he sprinted to catch up with the monster again. The saber in his hand trembled and pressed against the monster's forehead.
The monster's entire body trembled from fear. As its body shrank, it turned into an incomparably ugly man.
"Master, please spare my life. I won't dare to do it again." The monster man knelt in the air and kowtowed to Xiang Nan.
Xiang Nan said, "Who exactly are you? Why did you snatch the child?"
This was something that Xiang Nan couldn't understand the most. The Heavenly Devil Religion had deceived talented children in order to reproduce, so it made sense.
But why did this thing steal the baby, for food? Then why not snatch a martial artist with a higher cultivation realm, wouldn't it be more beneficial to eat it?
The monster didn't dare to hide anything. He knelt on the ground and kowtowed repeatedly. He replied, "I want to suck the blood essence of a young human. They haven't cultivated all sorts of human techniques yet. Whether it's martial arts foundation or the purity of blood essence, they are the highest."
"How dare you!" Xiang Nan roared and shouted, "Are the other children all sucked to death by you?"
The monster hurriedly shook its head, "No, I don't dare. I can't bear to suck them to death. I'm keeping them in my house, preparing to eat them all year round."
Xiang Nan heaved a sigh of relief and said, "Take me there!"
"Alright, alright, I'll listen to the experts." The monster kowtowed three more times. The moment it raised its head, it suddenly spat out a large mouthful of black water.
Xiang Nan was very close to the monster and had been guarding against the monster's eight tentacles, but he didn't expect it to be able to attack with its mouth.
This time, they were too close to each other to dodge. A large black stain was sprayed on Xiang Nan's chest.
An unpleasant stench and a strong pungent smell spread out. Xiang Nan felt dizzy and his body shook.
"Hahahaha!" The monster changed its previous appearance of being afraid of death and immediately smiled, "Brat, how can you defeat Grandpa?"
"You don't need to inquire about the name of Grandfather Eight Armed Heavenly Yao!"
"You've been poisoned by my Blood Fiend Voodoo Poison and will turn into blood within an hour!"
Xiang Nan lowered his head and looked at the black stain on his chest. The stain was very strange. It pierced through his clothes and stuck to his skin.
The Yuan Qi in his body was also unable to circulate smoothly due to the toxicity of the Blood Fiend Voodoo Poison.
