Du Wusheng shot the two a glance and said indifferently, “If you’re not helping, I’ll do it alone. Of course, if the two of you get into any trouble, I’ll help as well.”
He then strode out of the house in heavy steps. As he left, the many poisonous bugs in the house followed along. These poisonous bugs were incredibly terrifying. In fact, even Sovereigns would fear them.
“Do it if you want. I won’t go crazy with you,” said Can Lehen before he sped off.
After some hesitation, Yao Jiaojiao followed Du Wusheng and said, “I’ll go crazy with you for once, Old Poison. That guy might be ugly, but he’s still worth saving.”
Du Wusheng turned back to look at her and said, “Jiaojiao, you have always been a softie.”
“Don’t say that. I just don’t want the Seven Villains to be reduced into the Six Villains,” said Yao Jiaojiao. “Boss Li cares most about loyalty. Since he has not shown himself, he is probably not around anymore. I heard he has taken that step, but I’m not sure if that is true.”
Du Wusheng nodded and said, “Boss Li has outstanding talent. It is about time he takes that step. In fact, he could already do so 500 years ago, but he was delayed. His hatred has reached his limits over the period of 500 years, so he has probably returned to take his revenge. He is either dead now or has successfully taken his revenge and freed himself.”
“I really hope he succeeds,” said Yao Jiaojiao. She was showing her true emotions, and this was something extremely rare.
“How about you? You have been leading a tiring life all these years. Have you never thought of finding yourself a man and getting on with your life?” said Du Wusheng.
“The world is filled with heartbreakers. Why would I want a man? I’m doing well living freely by myself,” said Yao Jiaojiao.
“Is that so? Haven’t you been testing out different men with different appearances? Aren’t you trying to find a sincere man to spend the rest of your life with?” said Du Wusheng with a sigh.
“Old Poison, you are getting way too talkative today,” said Yao Jiaojiao unhappily.
“That’s because I don’t even know if I’ll return alive today.”
At the Skeleton Gang, Ugly Gambler was locked in a room. His strength had been completely sealed, but he wasn’t being mistreated. Seated opposite him was Xiang Shaoyun, who was slowly brewing a pot of tea. The calming fragrance of the 1000-year-old tea leaf permeated the room.
“Lord Gambler, have you ever imagined that a day like this where you would fall into my hands would come?” asked Xiang Shaoyun in a calm and unruffled manner.
Ugly Gambler had his strength completely sealed, and he had a bleak look as he replied, “I never imagined that you would grow this fast. I also did not imagine that you would also be able to deal with Old Poison’s poison.”
“Let’s not talk about that. What do you think of my proposal?” Xiang Shaoyun s.h.i.+fted the topic.
“Are you not afraid that I will find a way to break free of your control after agreeing? You should be aware that with my capabilities, n.o.body can find me if I decide to hide,” said Ugly Gambler.
“I am afraid, but I don’t care,” said Xiang Shaoyun indifferently. “I have a way to fully control you, but I do not want you to live under my control and lose your desire to forge ahead. That is why I have decided to talk with you. Of course, if you remain stubborn, you will become my puppet for eternity. That is not what I wish to see.”
He then released the Nether Soul Domain and wrapped Ugly Gambler in it. Ugly Gambler’s expression changed greatly at the Nether Soul Domain’s appearance.
“Nether Soul Domain!” he exclaimed.
Xiang Shaoyun did not say anything. He started chanting the Nether Dragon Soul Curse, and one symbol after another started drifting toward Ugly Gambler. Instead of invading his head straight away, the symbols hovered around him.
Xiang Shaoyun spoke again, “This is the Nether Dragon Soul Curse. It can put your soul under my full control, and you won’t be able to escape for your entire life. So do you think I’m bluffing or telling the truth?”
Ugly Gambler’s pupils instantly constricted. The fear on his face had betrayed his true feelings. He was a villain and was not afraid of death. However, he was fearful of turning into a puppet with no independent thought.
Xiang Shaoyun withdrew the symbols and the Nether Soul Domain. He then looked at Ugly Gambler indifferently and said, “In truth, I only need your help for one matter. When the matter is over, I can let you go.”
“What help do you need? If I can do it, I’ll certainly agree,” said Ugly Gambler as he heaved a breath of relief.
Xiang Shaoyun then told Ugly Gambler the situation he was in. It was at this time that Du Wusheng and Yao Jiaojiao arrived outside the Skeleton Gang. Instead of charging inside, they surrounded the headquarters with poison. The poisonous gas was extremely powerful, and an ordinary person would not be able to survive it.
In fact, this poisonous gas could easily kill about 70 or 80 percent of the people in the headquarters. Alas, Du Wusheng had miscalculated this time. Before the poisonous gas could enter the headquarters, a middle-aged man rushed out and swallowed the entirety of the gas.
The poisonous bugs releasing the gas were suddenly frightened and started fleeing in disarray. It was as though they had encountered their greatest nemesis. Even the Sovereigns among the bugs were returning to Du Wusheng in fear.
“Using poison before me is like using a saber in front of the ancestor of sabers,” said the toad.
“Monarch of all poison, poisonous toad!” exclaimed Du Wusheng in shock.
“You must be here to rescue that ugly b.a.s.t.a.r.d. Surrender now and avoid any unnecessary suffering on your part,” demanded the toad.
“Why waste time talking with them? Let’s beat them up first. Witness my Overlord Fist!” shouted the turtle, who charged out and threw a punch at Du Wusheng.
The turtle’s punch looked ordinary, but it contained boundless power.
“Old Poison, retreat!” Yao Jiaojiao shouted in alarm as she hurriedly retreated. She was not strong enough to stop the punch, so she didn’t even dare to try facing it.
However, Du Wusheng stood his ground. Fearsome dark energy gathered on his hand as he clawed at the punch. The dark claw attack was also powered by a terrifying poison. The turtle’s punch was corroded into nothingness, and strands of poison surrounded him.
He had thought that he could ignore the poison and continue attacking, but he found that the poison was instantly melting through his defensive barrier. He was forced to retreat, and he shouted at the toad, “Toad, this fellow is in your field. You’ll deal with him while I deal with the girl.”
