Hearing the order from their Guild Leader, the Blue Vest Guild's members ran
out of the shadow. Since the shadow covered a wide area, it ended up leaving six
people in the shadow. Scot Moran, Donald Callahan, and the other four Epic
Ranks. They would ght Lu An, who hid within the shadow.
Donald Callahan snapped out of his daze after the wake-up call of his Guild
Leader. He was in front of the death door just now. If not for his Guild Leader
intervening at the right time, he was done for. He quickly realized the situation
he was in and used the Bloodline Transformation.
His body jacked as he became two and a half meters tall, his skin turned black,
and a pair of bull horns grew on his head. After that, he took out his greatsword
and also a big shield that almost covered his whole body. The other four also
transformed and regrouped with Scot Moran and Donald Callahan.
Donald Callahan stayed in the front of the ve, as they had his back. That was
the usual formation they used to ght a strong monster. Donald Callahan would
be the front line with his strong physical power and almost unbreakable
defense. The formation always worked, especially if they only faced one enemy.
"Get ready for the attack. We need to nish this fast before the Tang Empire's
reinforcement comes!" Scot Moran told his subordinate in an intense tone. He
held the spear tightly as nervousness slowly crept into his heart. He did his best
to detect Lu An within the shadow, but he just could not sense Lu An.
"Behind us!" Darrick, one of the Epic Ranks, yelled as he saw a shadow come
out from the shadow below. The gure was holding four black daggers between
his ngers, and from the shadow's stature, without a doubt, the shadow was Lu
An. The shadow threw the eight daggers. The pitch-black dagger accelerated in
the air very fast but not fast enough to trick their eyes.
Donald Callahan reacted as he put his shield forward, blocking all the daggers.
The clash produced clanking noises as the daggers scattered around them. At
the same time, Scot Moran and another Epic Rank rushed toward the shadow in
the air. "I will not let you return to the shadow again!" Scot Moran quickly took
the chance to attack Lu An while in the air.
As long as he prevented Lu An from returning to the shadow, Lu An would not
be able to hide from them again. Scot Moran and his Epic Rank subordinate
were about to reach Lu An in the air, but they saw the pitch-black shadow
smiling at them. The wide smile gave Scot Moran an ominous feeling.
Sure enough, in the next second, the shadow in front of him was replaced by a
pitch-black dagger. Scot Moran quickly caught up with what happened when he
saw the dagger. He turned his head, and sure enough, a shadow appeared next
to Donald Callahan.
"Watch out, Callahan!" Scot Moran tried to warn his Vice Guild Leader, but it
was too late as no one noticed the shadow gure. He maneuvered his body in
the air, turning around and kicking the air. He tried to get back to help Donald Callahan.
Despite the warning from Scot Moran, everything was too late. When Callahan
turned to the side, he saw the shadow's hand reaching his face. The two and a
half meters Callahan was slammed down by Lu An. The height and weight
dierence did not matter as Callahan was helplessly brought into the shadow by Lu An.
In the next second, Scot Moran landed right where Callahan had just
disappeared. He tried to attack the shadow, but it was futile. It could not force
Lu An to bring Callahan out of the shadows. "Damn!" He started regretting his
action to confront Lu An's group. He just did not know that Lu An had a
troublesome ability like this. 'There must be a way to counter this shadow, but how?'
Of course, Lu An had a weakness, and his weakness was quite simple. The
weakness of shadow was light, so he needed someone with Light Elemental
Power like Kang Xue or Helia, the Light Bombyx Mori. They just need to get rid
of the shadow with light, then Lu An could not use the shadow to hide anymore.
While Scot Moran was at his wit's end, he heard the familiar scream from the shadow.
It was Donald Callahan's scream, and the scream came out from the shadow
below them. All ve Epic Ranks tried to attack the shadow with their skills, but
all their eorts were useless. They could not destroy the shadow or lure Lu An
out of the shadow.
"We are tight in time, Sir. We need to leave before the Tang Empire's
reinforcement arrives," Darrick was frustrated with the situation they were in.
He immediately proposed the idea to leave Donald Callahan and escape from this place.
"Do you think I will let you all leave?" Lu An overheard the conversation, and
he came out of the shadows with Donald Callahan. However, The Blue Vest
Guild's vice guild leader's body was no longer intact. Callahan lost his two legs
and all his ngers; blood was profusely owing out from his hand and thigh as
the man whimpered in terror and horror.
"Do you think I will leave after what you did to Callahan!?" Scot Moran's voice
came from Lu An's back. As soon as Lu An appeared on the surface, he used his
movement skill and moved to Lu An's back. However, his eort was futile as Lu
An in front of him was replaced by the black dagger once more. From where he
was, he saw Lu An appear next to one of his subordinates.
Before he could even warn them, Lu An slashed the sword to one of his
subordinates' necks. The head ew o into the air as the blood spurted out in
all directions. The body walked three steps forward before falling o to the ground.
At this moment, Scot Moran realized that number did not matter in ghting Lu
An. No matter how many Epic Ranks he had, he could not kill this young man,
"Leave the shadow! We are retreating! Leave the shadow! We are retreating!"
The enemy was just a perfect assassin. If they stayed longer in the shadow's
range, they would be killed one by one by the young man.
Scot Moran's left hand reached the whimpering Donald Callahan on the
ground. He intended to bring Callahan with him as he could not aord to lose
more Epic Rank. Even though Callahan lost his legs, there was still an elixir to
grow his legs back.
Scot Moran was about to jump out of the shadow with Callahan in his hand, but
Lu An did not allow that to happen. Six daggers shot toward Scot Moran from
six dierent directions. The daggers were just too fast, so he needed to block
them. He released Callahan from his grasp and blocked the dagger with the
spear in his hand. He then remembered that Lu An could switch position with
the dagger, so he leaped away from the daggers.
When he landed, he realized that Callahan was not in his hand anymore. He
forgot to bring Callahan with him after blocking the daggers.
"I will not let you bring him away from me! I told you, I will make him regret
insulting The Tang Empire's Emperor!" Lu An's deadpan expression gave Scot
Moran a chill. With this short exchange, he realized another thing. They just
provoked someone they should never provoke.
