Gamers Are Fierce - Chapter 58
The black umbrella that had fallen by Li Ang’s side vibrated for no reason.
The sprinting demon abruptly stopped. A red line had suddenly appeared on his stubby neck.
Blood spurted from Zou Zhengze’s neck, painting the walls in red.
The demon scratched his neck a few times and extracted a short strand of hair.
It was a short, black, sharp strand of hair.
This female hair strand was hanging vertically from the corridor’s ceiling. As Zou Zhengze was charging forward, this strand of hair cut his throat.
Zou Zhengze would have been beheaded if his body had not been so sturdy or if the hair strand had been more ductile.
Unfortunately, there was no what-if.
As though a trap had been activated, countless black thin hair strands crawled from the corridor walls. They coiled together like vines, forming a long rope and creating a huge net that assaulted Zou Zhengze.
The demon smirked as dense Demonic Qi surged and swept across the corridor.
Chai Cuiqiao, who was hiding under the floor, paled. As a vengeful ghost, she was most afraid of demons like this, who possessed abundant blood Qi.
“Where are you going?”
Zou Zhengze was about to pry out the vengeful ghost when Li Ang lifted himself from the wall with a crack and took a deep breath.
The Ripple Breathing Technique circulated to its maximum capacity. Meanwhile, blood rushed through his bloodstream and his muscles shook as a burning-hot ripple surged through his body.
The ripple energy circulated to its limit, causing ‘ripple scampering’.
Adrenaline was secreted once more. The intense pain rooted him in reality. This was the very first time Li Ang clearly felt his every muscle, bone, vein, and organ…
Zou Zhengze suddenly sensed danger. Subconsciously, he lifted both his arms, creating something that looked like a shield in front of him. Through the gap between his arms, he saw Li Ang kick the wall behind him.
In an instant, Li Ang appeared in front of Zou Zhengze. An extremely powerful ripple was concentrated at the tip of the dagger’s blade in Li Ang’s hand, forming a bright star-shaped silver flare.
The energy known as “silver scampered ripple” extended from the dagger’s blade, allowing the whole blade to pierce Zou Zhengze’s skin and flesh without any obstructions.
Compared to Zou Zhengze’s three-meter-tall body, the wound created by the dagger was insignificant. However, the ripple, which was capable of repressing all Yin Qi, spread all over his body through the wound and corroded it.
In the blink of an eye, the palm of the three-eyed giant was corroded halfway through. Flesh dripped onto the floor like melted candle wax, exposing the disorderly bone spurs concealed within.
In the face of this excruciating pain, Zou Zhengze could no longer maintain his previous calmness. His face contorted and the red-black runes on his skin once again squirmed like tadpoles. He looked even more frightening than Tyrant in the video game Resident Evil.
The dark cloud whirlpool suspended in the air stopped swirling, and the souls floating in mid-air suddenly could not sense the warm and peaceful breeze anymore, which made them look stunned and confused.
Chai Cuiqiao flew out of the building and headed toward the lost souls with a pale face. She then reached out, grabbed the wrists of two souls, and dragged them back down to stuff them back into their own bodies.
“Go to hell!”
The three eyes of Zou Zhengze, who saw Chai Cuiqiao’s action through the broken wall, turned bloodshot. He ran toward Li Ang and roared venomously, “Zun Haal Viik!”
The soundwave assaulted Li Ang, who felt pain in his hand for no reason and subconsciously released the dagger.
[Skill Name: Dragon Roar/Disarm]

[Consumption: Psionic Points 10%]
[Cooldown: 10 minutes]
[Learning Requirement: Strength more than or equal to 10]
[Remarks: The dragon roar can steal any weapon from the enemy.]
The dragon roar of the online game The Elder Scrolls was a language used by dragons that was capable of using and stacking up word-symbols to increase any effect.
Zou Zhengze had never been to the world of The Elder Scrolls and knew nothing about dragon language. However, neither of these two factors affected his ability to roar and force Li Ang to drop his weapon.
The dagger lost the support of the ripple energy the moment it left Li Ang’s hand, thus becoming ordinary metal. Due to the corrosion of Zou Zhengze’s flesh, which was filled with negative energy, the blade swiftly melted and fell to the floor with a ding.
Li Ang immediately bent backward and avoided Zou Zhengze’s sweeping fist, which was as big as a sandbag. It was also covered in bone spurs so it looked terrifying.
Li Ang, who had barely evaded the punch, stood back up, kicked the floor, and leaped up.
His arm swung back. His body became a bow, his elbow a bowstring, and his fist an arrow. Filled with ripple energy, his fist landed heavily on the very center of Zou Zhengze’s sternum.
The energy released by the ripples was significantly lower than that of any other abilities.
However, in terms of duration, the ripples that originated from the breath of a living organism were long-lasting, even surpassing the energy of the same rank. This energy matched well the Eastern internal force, as there was an extremely small difference between the two.
What was even more unique was the fact that the ripple energy was majestic. Like the scorching sun, it was a natural slayer of Yin Qi and bad luck.
After one blow, the skin and flesh of the giant’s chest were ripped, just like a lake’s surface when a stone was thrown in. His entire chest caved in, emitting a string of cracking sounds.
The Yin-Yang Diabolism gave the user an inhuman healing rate. As a result, this severe chest injury was not life-threatening. However, Zou Zhengze’s body still lost its balance, slanted, and fell backward.
Just as he was about to completely fall, the demon stopped the motion with one hand. Using agility that did not match his huge body, he flipped backward in the air with the tip of his toes pointed upward. Taking advantage of the fact that Li Ang had retreated, he regained his footing.
His heart was like gunpowder and his fist was like a cannon!
The demon slammed his feet against the ground and aimed his fist at Li Ang’s face.
Li Ang evaded it. Using his left hand, he caught hold of Zou Zhengze’s waist as his left palm chopped the other man’s inner elbow. Taking advantage of his swinging motion, his left palm slapped the other man’s face.
Dense ripple energy flowed through Li Ang’s left palm and landed on Zou Zhengze’s lower jaw.
His blood, flesh, and bones quivered. The neck injury caused by Chai Cuiqiao’s hair strand opened and blood flowed once again.
