While Jared felt happy about finding a way out, a huge wave suddenly formed in the water. In the next second, several crimson-red monsters appeared.
Although their limbs were clearly visible, their faces were not. Appearance-wise, they were like humans, but covered in blood from head to toe.
As Jared watched the humanoid monsters, a thought came to his mind. These monsters’ nest is linked to this place, so they must be formed out of the bloody water. After all, this pool consists of the blood of ancient immortals and demons. The energy it contains must be incredible! More importantly, the water is connected to the Night Sea out there through this cave. Eventually, this water created these blood monsters. Otherwise, there never would’ve been monsters like these in the Night Sea.
Meanwhile, the sudden appearance of the blood spirits made everyone nervous. No one knew how powerful the monsters were..
With a deep growl, the blood spirits charged toward the humans. Just like that, an indiscriminate massacre started. They killed any human they met.
At the same time, the humans, too, charged forward with their weapons. It was a war of survival. Hence, no one dared to go easy on the monsters.
Meanwhile, Jared wielded Dragonslayer Sword and brought it down on a blood spirit. A dazzling light shot out, piercing through the blood spirit’s head. In an instant, the latter dissolved into a puddle of blood and slid back into the spring.
Jared shielded both Dalton and Rosetta while keeping his eyes fixed on the blood spirit he had killed. “That’s it? This monster’s too weak. It actually died just like that?”
“Don’t let your guard down, Mr. Chance. These blood spirits can come back to life. They can’t die. We wouldn’t have been running around desperately if that wasn’t the case,” Dalton hurriedly reminded Jared.
Sure enough, the blood spirit Jared had just killed slowly materialized again in the bloody water. In fact, many cultivators were experiencing the same. The monsters could not be killed.
The newfound fact left the crowd dumbfounded. Although the monsters were not powerful, they were immortal. The crowd would only die of exhaustion if things continued. As Jared stared at the immortal blood spirits, an idea popped into his mind.
“Lure the blood spirits to the shore and don’t kill them in the water. That way, they won’t be able to revive!” yelled Jared.
With that, Jared turned to Dalton and instructed, “Lure a blood spirit with the Bloodsoul Orb. Let’s test my theory.”
Nodding his head, Dalton held up the Bloodsoul Orb, which glowed brilliantly in the air. Almost instantly, three blood spirits came rushing over.
At that, Dalton began running with the Bloodsoul Orb, wanting to get further from the spring. Despite that, the three blood spirits did not stop their pursuit. One could even hear them growling hoarsely.
Jared took one glance and decided they were far enough from the shore. Hence, he waved his sword, and a dazzling light pierced through all three of the blood spirits.
All three monsters were killed instantly and dissolved into three pools of blood. However, the pools of blood kept flowing in one direction.
Judging by the direction they were flowing, they were headed for the spring. It was clear that they wanted to return to the spring to come back to life.
Seeing that, Jared knew his guess was right. The monsters could not revive unless they were in the spring. With a loud clap, Jared created a flame in his palm.
Unleashing his fire nascence, he threw out a flame reaching a temperature of hundreds of thousands of degrees Celsius. Almost instantly, the three pools of blood evaporated.
When Jared saw that, he quickly informed the rest, who then lured the blood spirits to the shore before killing them.
Some people used fires to eliminate the pools of blood, while some used items to stop the latter from flowing back to the spring.
In fact, some even used vessels to contain the liquid. After all, the blood contained a significant amount of spiritual energy. It would be a great resource for cultivation.
