He suddenly felt a scorching heat on the top of his head, and he reached out his hand to touch it. It was burning hot!
"Senior Brother Lan, your hair is on fire!" Yan Xiao yelled out when he saw this.
At this time, Lan Yingyan's hair had already been burned, and it was burning vigorously. Not long after, black smoke appeared.
Hair, to begin with, was already a flammable material, and adding on to that, it had been burnt by the flames of the Fallen Red Lotus. This fire was not at all easy to extinguish.
Lan Yingyan was angry to the point of wanting to just slap Su Luo to death!
By now, even if he was mentally disabled, he had already figured out that the only one who could have set his hair on fire was the Su Luo who he had currently raised above his head!
At this moment, the person Lan Yingyan wanted to slap the most was himself!
Killing, beating to death, burning to death, all of these would work, but he had been so mentally disabled at that moment, choosing out of all things, to smash Su Luo to death. This allowed her the chance to get close to him and enabled her to retaliate! In reality, much of his power had not yet been displayed!
Lan Yingyan no longer had the time to think about any of this. The most important thing for him right now was to hurry and extinguish the scorching flames on his head.
Su Luo wiped the blood from the corner of her mouth. A cold and sly smile flashed under her eyes. In a flash, she slipped to the side, fiercely stabbing a dagger towards Lan Yingyan's chest!
If Su Luo stabbed him, Lan Yingyan would probably be half-dead.
At this time, Lan Yingyan was busy extinguishing the fire, but he turned around to avoid Su Luo's deathly attack. Who knew that Su Luo seemed to have expected this move ahead of time. She leaned sideways and leaped over Lan Yingyan's right hand. The dagger slashed across his arm.
A clear ringing sound was heard.
Lan Yingyan looked down, and was instantly furious!
The dagger had cut a bloody wound into his right arm. The wound was not big, and the amount of blood flowing out was very little, however!
The blood that flowed out was green. It was obvious that Su Luo had smeared poison on the dagger.
"You dare to use poison!" Lan Yingyan extinguished the last cluster of flames above his head, flying towards Su Luo wildly. His eyes were flashing with rage.
Su Luo sneered: "I already used it, what else do I not dare to do? Since you are asking this question, it shows that your brain has already been damaged by the flames!"
Lan Yingyan almost went crazy with anger!
But at this time, he found that the strength in his arms was disappearing, and this feeling of powerlessness was spreading towards his limbs and his bones.
Lan Yingyan was so angry that he was going crazy: "Quickly bring out the antidote!"
Su Luo sneered, but at that instant, a miserable scream came from Li Man Man.
Su Luo turned her head and saw that several members of the Xiao Luo team had all been controlled by their opponent, one by one, cold swords lay across their necks. They would be dead if the cold swords fell.
Yan Xiao finally saw what Lan Yingyan presently looked like. He was so shocked that his eyes were about to pop out.
The originally beautiful man's hair was burnt to the extent where there was a piece of hair to the east and another to the west, one piece of red and one piece of white. His face was pitch black, and even his clothes had been burned into with small black holes, he simply could not appear more wretched.
"Senior Brother Lan, you…" Yan Xiao covered his eyes and couldn't bear to see anymore.
Lan Yingyan knew how embarrassing he appeared at this moment, but his life was more important. He pointed at Su Luo with his long sword and said angrily: "Hurry up and hand over the antidote, or your Xiao Luo team will be collectively finished off!"
Su Luo snickered, hands crossed behind her back, and looking up at the sky: "We are finished, you are also finished. This seems fair enough."
"You really think that nobody but you can cure this poison?" A shadow of malice flashed under Lan Yingyan's eyes.
"Then you take a look, do you know what kind of poison this is?" The corners of Su Luo’s mouth twitched slightly, a cruel touch flashed across her thin lips.
This poison was incredible. Master had refined it, and it was called “A Sword to Seal the Throat”. The amount Su Luo possessed was very small, so she would not use it in a normal situation and only used it this time because it was a matter of life or death. Would Lan Yingyan be able to identify this poison? Entirely impossible.
At this time, Yan Xiao and the others ran up and circled Lan Yingyan, but they, however, were all helpless towards this poison.
At this point, things had come to a deadlock.
Lan Yingyan could clearly see a green meridian now appearing on his right arm, and this green meridian was moving upstream at a speed visible to the naked eye. It was only just now on the elbow, but now it had already almost reached the shoulder.
Su Luo smilingly interjected: "Wait until the green meridian reaches the heart. You have worked so hard during your life to reach 75th place on the Dragon List. I feel sorry for you. Don't glare at me, anyway, if we all are going to die, it is not considered a loss for me, a person who is at the bottom of Dragon List, to be buried alongside you."
Su Luo was now betting everyone’s life on this.
As the saying goes, those who are barefoot are not afraid of those who wear 1, Lan Yingyan’s life was more precious than hers. Su Luo had already calculated, they wouldn’t let him die!
"Brother Lan, right now we still hold the advantage. Can we really still be threatened by this vile wench? Sit there and wait for me, I’ll kill her!" Yan Xiao said. He hadn't yet finished his sentence when he was already rushing towards Su Luo to attack.
Su Luo’s mouth curled into a sly, cold smile. She knew that these people usually appeared as if they were harmonious; however, when it came to critical moments, they wouldn’t hesitate to get rid of each other. In their hearts, these men were jealous of each other. It was quite scary.
Before Yan Xiao approached her, Su Luo said provocatively: "But, if you die, the spot next to Fairy Wu You would happen to be freed up… For example, some of these people here, they could take advantage of the situation."
Su Luo's words incited their jealousy.
"Hey, stinky girl, what do you mean?" Yan Xiao was already in a bad mood. After hearing Su Luo’s words, he was so furious he began trembling with anger, glaring at her anxiously.
At this moment, he no longer dared to go up and attack, and he just pointed at Su Luo with the tip of the sword.
"I meant exactly what I said. If there is anyone who is anxious or frustrated, it shows that that person wants to take this position." Su Luo leaned against the trunk of the old tree and looked at Yan Xiao with a smile.
She downplayed Yan Xiao's words, but it made him almost explode with anger, because Su Luo's words were true, and they were piercing into his heart.
Lan Yingyan glanced at Yan Xiao with a suspicious look, and then looked over Mo Li and the others’ faces one by one.
He had to admit that Su Luo's words did make sense.
Now, the state of affairs had fallen into a very delicate situation.
Lan Yingyan and his team controlled Su Luo's team, leaving Su Luo the only one remaining.
However, the team leader Lan Yingyan had been poisoned by Su Luo, and asides from her, no one else could treat this “A Sword to Seal a Throat” poison.
At the same time, Lan Yingyan's team was not harmonious, and the other three people were also eyeing his position. Right now, the two opposing sides were in balance, only because no one knew how much strength they had left.
And this very situation had been designed by Su Luo to allow them to retreat.
She could neither overly weaken Lan Yingyan, nor not weaken him at all. She had deliberately shown her weakness earlier, and this included purposefully allowing herself to be beaten by Lan Yingyan, so as to trap him into this dilemma and leave him with no choice but to temporarily suspend this fight.
Yan Xiao wanted to disregard all of this and rush up to kill Su Luo so that he could contribute. However, under Lan Yingyan's gaze, his footsteps seemed to be nailed to the ground, and he was unable to move.
