Gamers Are Fierce - chapter 59
The sound of breathing stopped. Zou Zhengze subconsciously clutched his throat with his left hand and hastily threw a punch at Li Ang’s head with his right hand.
Li Ang twisted his body to the left and evaded the punch. As he kicked against the wall, he punched the demon’s lower abdomen.
The ripple energy spread inside the abdomen to the rectus abdominis muscle, the transverse abdominis muscle, the omentum, the ileum, the jejunum, and finally, the posterior lumbar!
Zou Zhengze only felt his abdomen go numb and could no longer feel his spine. After gathering his energy with great difficulty, he lifted his left leg, aimed at Li Ang’s thoracic cavity, and kicked. However, Li Ang took a few steps back and used his left arm to block the kick before taking a step to the left. Then, his right fist continued punching the demon’s abdominal chest, causing it to cave in.
Dong, dong, dong…
Li Ang expressionlessly threw punches one after another like a pile driver, aiming at the demon’s head and beating it until it sank into the concave chest.
Zou Zhengze, whose head was stuck in his torso, murmured indistinctly, “Really painful…”
Black Demonic Qi was emitted from his body.
Li Ang felt goosebumps all over and used the ripples to destroy the joints of the demon’s four limbs while activating the Cat’s Eye and its Illusion before swiftly retreating.
The pulverized body was completely unaffected by the Illusion. It twisted in a manner that defied human body mechanics and stood up.
There was a squiggling meaty clump of blood, muscles, and bone where the head was supposed to be.
Chai Cuiqiao, who was busy leading the souls back to their bodies, suddenly discovered that the dark cloud whirlpool binding the souls had dissipated. Her movements were no longer restricted.
This spelt trouble. After all, the Yin Demonic Qi in the sky congregated to form a long dragon that flew through the huge hole formed at the balcony and rushed down to Zou Zhengze’s head.
This signified that Zou Zhengze had completely given up on his plan to devour the souls of the residents of this shantytown. At the same time, Li Ang was now facing a full-bodied demon who was no longer held back by anything.
Chai Cuiqiao, who was not affected by the dark cloud whirlpool anymore, bit her lips anxiously. Using her fastest speed, she kicked all souls like footballs back into their bodies. Then, she flew back to the building Li Ang was in.
“I am asking you, why are you running away?”
The demon, who had a bizarre ball of flesh for a head, stumbled down the corridor like an infant learning to walk.
The red-black runes on his skin lost control as they convulsed, transformed, fluttered, and trembled like the mojibake on a crashed computer.
The bone spurs growing all over his body alternated between growing and shrinking. In a moment, holes were formed as a result of the corrosion and red-white bones sprouted from them. A moment later, pink sarcoma-shaped tentacles grew and fell off.
Such a being could no longer be considered human but was still labeled by the system as a player who cultivated the Heavenly Demonic Power.
The manhua series Legend of Emperors depicted a world that was highly skilled in martial arts. The Heavenly Demonic Power was considered an apex cultivation technique in Legend of Emperors. Zou Zhengze might be a veteran player, but his will and martial arts cultivation were still incapable of mastering this cultivation technique.
The reason he was able to retain his complete and individual will was because of the skill Calm Mind Art, which helped counterbalance the Heavenly Demonic Power/Yin-Yang Diabolism’s negative side-effects.
[Skill Name: Calm Mind Art]
[Effects: Passively calms the mind, maintains a calm mindset, and neutralizes Illusions]
[Learning Requirement: Intelligence more than or equal to 10]
[Remarks: If one’s mind is calm and clear, nothing can alarm them.]
The Calm Mind Art was not as powerful as the Heavenly Demonic Power. Due to the large amount of Demonic Qi entering the body, the Calm Mind Art lost its effectiveness. The unadulterated evil intent brought about by the Yin-Yang Diabolism corroded Zou Zhengze’s consciousness.
It would not be wrong to say that Zou Zhengze had completely lost himself. He had become a wild, instinctive demonic being.
Li Ang silently inched backward. Zou Zhengze’s blood dripped from the glove, drawing a long red line on the dusty corridor floor.
As though a limit had been reached, the size of the demon increased once more. Bone armor swiftly covered its bulky right arm, forming a bone blade the size of a door.
The demon slashed with the blade diagonally downward. The Demonic Qi emitted from the bone blade solidified and swept forward.
The entire corridor and floor were sliced into two, while the indestructible armored concrete collapsed and fell like jelly.
The entire building slanted to one side as a cloud of dust obscured the moonlight. Li Ang suddenly sprinted forward down the slanted corridor!
His forefinger and middle finger pressed together to form a sword. The energy coagulated at the fingertips, emitting a piercing silver flare.
Silver ripple scampering!
The demon, which had lost its consciousness, made no attempt to evade it or escape. It stood in the slanted corridor, instinctively holding the bone blade in front of it as it faced Li Ang, who was charging toward it.
The fingertips smoothly pierced the bone blade, making sharp bone pieces shatter and fly everywhere.
This was not enough. Li Ang charged forward and squeezed the demon by its coarse neck. Then, he slowly and carefully controlled the finger sword to cut the bone blade as he stabbed at the demon’s head. In the meantime, the demon exerted its full strength to push its right bladed arm forward.
The two figures came to a standstill as they simply fought for power and control.
Finally, the demon could not bear the danger it sensed anymore. It swung its left arm in an upward motion, aiming an upper hook at Li Ang’s thoracic cavity.
Thin, long, dense black hair grew swiftly from the floor and grabbed hold of the demon’s left arm. The hair was continuously being burned and broken by dense Blood Qi, which would be replaced instantly by more hair.
Pale-faced Chai Cuiqiao was sprawled like a cat against the wall behind the demon. She used all the Yin Qi she had within her to produce black hair that bound the demon’s arm and body. Then, she tugged it backward.
The standstill was finally broken. With a sliver flare, the finger sword bore into the demon’s head.
The fingertips of Li Ang’s right hand emitted gentle yet majestic ripple energy. The ripples were like poison for the demonic being, mercilessly corroding the blood and flesh and thus creating a hole in the demon’s head.
Li Ang inserted his right hand into the hole, reaching the mouth cavity and extending further down. Then, he grasped the esophagus.
“Dalang, time for your medication.”
Li Ang gently hugged the demon’s head as he used his left hand to take a white phosphorus incendiary bomb out of his backpack. His left hand followed the right and pressed the bomb into the esophagus.
This series of actions was a lot like forcibly flushing a toilet…
The demon possessed strong life-force and was still alive and violently struggling. However, it was unable to stop Li Ang’s actions while being strongly bound by Chai Cuiqiao’s hair.
The incendiary bomb slid down the esophagus into the stomach.
Li Ang removed the safety and pin before slowly extracting his bloody arm. Then, with Chai Cuiqiao’s help, he restrained the struggling demon.
The white phosphorus incendiary bomb started to burn. Dense smoke escaped through the hole in the demon’s head, creating a hilarious image.
The demon did not have a mouth so it could not speak. However, based on its frantic struggle, one could guess how intense the pain was.
The greatest characteristic of the white phosphorus was that it could start burning in a narrow or confined space. It could burn as hot as 1,000 degrees Celsius. If an ordinary person came into contact with it slightly, their flesh and bones would be burned. The spreading fire could not be stopped by splashing water or burying it in soil. The only way of putting it out was if the white phosphorus was completely consumed and the fire died down. Since this incendiary bomb had been specially created by Li Ang, it contained a relatively large amount of white phosphorus.
The demon’s struggle decreased. Yellow flames burned through its skin as this inhuman body finally stopped moving.
[Eliminate the murderer who killed Zeng Weiming and Wang Fangni 1/1]
[Routine Quest ‘Mad Man’ has been completed]
[Reward is being determined]
The yellow flames were still burning, emitting dense smoke. Li Ang stopped pressing the demon’s arms, stood up, and waved his palm in front of his nose to disperse the piercing white phosphorus smell and the fragrance of barbecued meat.
Li Ang would not want to eat barbecued meat over the next few days…
 A joke from the classic story Water Margin, where the wife, Pan Jinlian, poisoned her husband, Wu Dalang. It basically means “I want to poison you”.
