Chapter 1349: Strange Lu Xuyang

Hexi frowned and said slowly, “Lu Xuyang?”

Jin Zeyu nodded, “Lu Xuyang checked that candidate and said, ‘This person has no wood spiritual power on him, so he is already useless.’ After that, he grabbed the examinee’s Dantian… then he was turned into an old and ugly mummy in an instant.”

Hexi didn’t respond yet, but Nangong Yu immediately looked serious, grabbed Hexi’s hand, and said in a deep voice, “Are you sure he turned the examinee into a mummy instead of just poaching his Dantian?”

Jin Zeyu closed his eyes, suppressed the fear in his mind and said, “I will never forget the scene I saw with my own eyes. At that time, my heart was full of fear, but I didn’t dare to move at all.”

“Then I heard the white-bearded old man say to Lu Xuyang, ‘It seems that among all the people with wood spiritual root, only President Lu is the most powerful. Not only are you not dead after your wood spiritual root got extracted, but you even devour the beastkin’s vitality in the processing of condensing yuan crystal. Now you even have the ability to detect spiritual roots and devour people’s cultivation! This is a blessing in disguise, even I’m jealous of you.’”

As soon as Jin Zeyu said this, Nangong Yu’s expression changed. His hand holding around Hexi’s tightened slightly, and a trace of panic flashed in his eyes as if he was afraid that someone else would take her away.

Hexi was also shocked.

She didn’t expect that Lu Xuyang was also the one whose wood spiritual root got extracted.

However, Lu Xuyang not only didn’t die of wood spiritual root extraction, but he also devoured the beastkin vitality?

Moreover, he now had the ability to devour other people’s cultivation and detect the spiritual root?

What was even more frightening was that Lu Xuyang should hate Elder Fei and the group because of this, but now he was able to serve them wholeheartedly.

For the first time, Hexi felt real fear of a person.

This Lu Xuyang’s scheming and ruthlessness really moved her.

Hexi took a deep breath, suppressed the shock in her heart and looked at Jin Zeyu, “Did you escape that night?”

Jin Zeyu nodded, then he shook his head bitterly: “I escaped, but you can also say I didn’t.”

“At that time, I didn’t dare to move at all. I kept watching them use that bloody and cruel array to extract the wood spiritual root martial artists and beastkins one by one to ge the light green crystal stones or beads.”

“Until the last beastkin, that beastkin was very strong. He suddenly woke up and blew himself up while being extracted. Lu Xuyang and the others panicked for a while, and I took the opportunity to escape.”

Hexi raised her eyebrows, “Since you escaped…”

There was a painful look in Jin Zeyu’s eyes, “When the beastkin exploded, a green bead splashed on my body, and I took that bead away before I had time to think about it.”

“It was because of the pearl that Lu Xuyang discovered my whereabouts that night. He seemed to have a way to find the trace of this peal. Although I kept it inside a jade box that can isolate Divine Sense, but Lu Xuyang still discovered the aura on me.”

With that said, Jin Zeyu took out a jade box from the storage bag and opened it.

Hexi saw a crystal-clear emerald green bead inside. As soon as she held the bead in her hand, she felt a powerful vitality rushed toward her.

Jin Zeyu saidm “I kept this bead all the time, hoping to expose Lu Xuyang’s conspiracy one day, but now it seems that I can’t do it myself.”
