Chapter 807 – Dark Forest (6)
Su Luo bent down at her waist and began to search for the Golden Crowned Snake King’s crystal stone.
Generally speaking, the crystal stone would all be on the forehead.
Su Luo used a sharp dagger to cut across and, as expected, found a reddish-orange-colored crystal stone in the Golden Crowned Snake King’s forehead.
This Golden Crowned Snake King was not merely a fourth rank, rather, it was just about to step into the fifth rank. However, what a pity, it just failed like this through that last bit of effort.
The weak were prey to the strong, this was the inherent law of survival.
Moreover, it was the Golden Crowned Snake King that had first besieged her. If her strength hadn’t been enough, the one collapsed on the floor right now would be her.
As a result, Su Luo collected that stone without even a little bit of guilt in her heart.
Just when Su Luo was preparing to leave, from the corner of her eyes, she suddenly caught a glimpse of the edge of clothing.
Why was there the edge of clothing here?
Su Luo very curiously walked over, walking until she reached the back of a large tree.
She raised her eyes towards it and unexpectedly saw a corpse that was dripping with blood.
This corpse was male, approximately twenty years old.
He was dressed all in black, sturdy clothing. A black cloth covered his face and his entire body was shrouded in darkness. Quite clearly, this was an assassin.
The condition of his death was very bitter.
A sharp sword passed through his chest to his back. The wound at his chest was gapingly big, the size of a bowl, and blood had flowed all over the ground.
Apart from the mortal wound at his chest, there were still nearly ten wounds of all sizes located on his body.
It could clearly be seen that when he was fighting for his life, how desperate the battle was.
After Su Luo examined it, she realized that the time since the death of this corpse was within a day.
Momentarily, Su Luo’s eyebrows knitted together slightly.
Ahead of her, there was an intense battle. If she walked along the path she had originally planned, she could rashly encounter a disaster.
Just right at this moment, Zi Yu’s voice came through faintly from the direction on top of a tree: “Go according to the original route.”
Su Luo put both her hands on her hips, raised her eyes up and glared at him unhappily.
She just knew it!
Senior Brother Ice Cube was longing for her to participate in a fight. The more intense, the closer it was to a life-and-death crisis, the better it would be.
“Alright, then I’ll just go according to the original route.”
However, today, it was somewhat late. At night, the Dark Forest was very dangerous, unsuitable for hurrying on a journey.
Consequently, Su Luo took the opportunity to camp out and rested at her original location.
In areas outside the city, she immediately reflected upon the importance of being a space mage.
Space, for people who were leaving home for a journey, they would kill for this absolutely amazing equipment.
Su Luo took out the tent she had already prepared from within her space and placed it on level ground.
She felt that her stomach was somewhat hungry and decided to light a fire to make a pot of fresh, aromatic and delicious snake soup.
As for raw materials, they were naturally drawn from local resources.
Such a huge Gold Crowned Snake King, even if she ate it for a month, she would not be able to finish it.
From a pile in the corner of her space, Su Luo took out a simple iron rack and hooked up the iron pot to the pitchfork-like rack. Then, she began to deal with the snake meat.
Snake soup was not at all easy to make.
Su Luo took hold of the softest part of the Golden Crowned Snake King’s body, skinned it then threaded the flesh. Afterwards, she used snake fat to roughly stir-fry it once through.
Because she had her space, she definitely brought along cooking wine, scallion, ginger, garlic and other seasonings.
Thus, she poured in the cooking wine, coarse salt, and then added sliced ginger, thin strips of scallion, ground pepper and so on.
This area was still considered the forest’s outer surroundings, so she could still light a fire for the time being. In another two days, Su Luo would not dare to light a fire so openly and without fear like this again.
In any case, the time in her space was slowed down by tenfold. As a result, Su Luo decided to make several pots of soup then keep them inside her space. So when the time came, it would be convenient to eat.
After approximately one hour, the fresh, aromatic and delicious snake soup was done.
Zi Yu, who liked to pretend not to be around when Su Luo was fighting, now actually quietly showed himself.
A hint of a smile appeared in Su Luo’s eyes. Smilingly, she called out to Senior Brother Ice Cube to come over and eat snake soup together.
Seeing the clean bowl and chopsticks placed neatly in front of him, the corner of Zi Yu’s eyes ticked slightly.
