However, Andrius gritted his teeth and persisted, dragging his severely injured body along the way. He followed the crowd in pursuit while simultaneously adjusting his breath to recover from his internal injuries.
Although the demon snake was extremely fast, its traces on the ground were too obvious, like a guiding beacon.
The crowd followed the winding trenches on the snowy ground and the occasional scent of blood, chasing the snake toward the white wolf king’s cave.
Perhaps calling it the demon snake’s cave would be more accurate.
Andrius saw the cave and was immediately struck by a realization.
No wonder there was such a vast and astonishing killing intent back then. It was because this was where the demon snake was sealed.
Everyone rushed in.
Andrius was no exception.
All of Andrius‘ previous doubts were swept away by the wind when he saw the huge cracks in the ground and the dim pool deep below.
“Quick, attack together!”
“Don’t let it dive into the water.”
“We have to kill it on the shore.”
“If it escapes into the water, all our previous efforts will be in vain. We’ve worked too hard for that!”
The Insect Ruler and other forebearers and fighters saw the demon snake by the water and immediately shouted eagerly, rushing down the cracks.
With the Insect Ruler’s roar, everyone rushed forward in an instant.
The demon snake was already covered in wounds. Andrius‘ spear had almost pierced through its head, and blood occasionally spurted from the wound.
At that moment, it finally exhausted its strength.
“The demon snake is about to die. Don’t hold back at this time. Make sure to kill it!”
The Insect Ruler took the lead in charging, howling continuously.
The sounds echoed continuously in this confined space.
With the demon snake’s final powerless roar, it slowly fell on the shore and lost the last hint of vitality.
As soon as the demon snake died, Old Hagstorm immediately chopped off its huge head cleanly.
After cutting off the head, he stabbed his sword into it, dug around for a moment, and finally pulled out a bloody and fleshy bead the size of a fist.
It was the demon snake’s core.
“The demon snake’s core?”
The Insect Ruler had been waiting for his opportunity. When he saw the item in Old Hagstorm’s hands, his eyes immediately brightened, and he rushed forward to snatch it.
Old Ophis blocked the Insect Ruler with a cold snort.
The Insect Ruler glanced at Old Ophis, then greedily looked at the core in Old Hagstorm’s hand, saying sinisterly, “Old Hagstorm, the demon snake was killed by the joint efforts of everyone here.
“You haven’t contributed at all, but you’re coming out to grab the fruits of victory… That’s simply unacceptable.”
With the Insect Ruler’s provocation, the forebearers of each family could not sit still.
“Hand the demon snake core over!”
“The demon snake core belongs to everyone. Are you going to make us all your enemy?”
“Hurry up and hand over the demon snake core, or don’t blame us for being impolite!”
“There is no such thing as a free lunch in this world!”
The Insect Ruler saw that it was almost enough and immediately lunged at Old Ophis. Many high–level experts also joined in and surrounded Old Ophis.
