“Mother, what should we do now? Are we going back?”
The atmosphere in the demon cave was very oppressive.
Black Dragon had originally run over confidently and brought such a generous condition to cooperate with them. He said that he could take down the human race at once, but who would have thought that he would take down the human race with this method?
The current Black Dragon had disappeared without a trace, and it was very likely that he had been destroyed by Li Yuanqing. He only had this much ability, yet he still dared to say that he wanted to destroy the entire human race. This was too ridiculous.
“Black Dragon, you harmed me!”
The broodmother let out a sad cry.
This time, they had invested a huge amount of troops. 100,000 members of the Insect Clan had died in the first two waves.
These 100,000 troops were a rather important combat strength for them. Moreover, in order to win in one go, they had invested a lot in the first two waves. They were basically all powerful people.
Now that these people had been destroyed, the strength of the entire Insect Clan had been greatly reduced. Their overall strength had been reduced by a third, and they had been destroyed so easily. It was simply too laughable.
What was even more ridiculous was that they had been tricked into coming to this place. Black Dragon had already disappeared without a trace and left them outside Sea City. If they hadn’t run fast, they would probably have become the third team to be destroyed.
Chang Ming knelt at the feet of the broodmother and said nothing.
No one blamed him. He was a famous expert in the entire Insect Clan. If even he could not do anything, the others would probably be at their wits’ end.
Since his mother had already said so, they probably had no choice but to retreat. They really shouldn’t have appeared here.
“All soldiers of the Insect Clan, remember this. We are irreconcilable with the human race!”
“We are irreconcilable!”
“We are irreconcilable!”
They shouted this slogan again and again. Behind this slogan was the signal that they were about to retreat. After shouting, they would leave this Catacomb world forever and never return.
However, what they did not notice was that in a corner that they had not noticed at all, a short demon with a little elf on his shoulder was strolling around the demon cave.
This person was not aimless. He chose those places with rich power and was attracted to them. He slowly followed them and figured out all these places.
As he walked, he suddenly came to a teleportation door with two people guarding it.
The two of them noticed that someone was approaching and immediately waved their weapons in front of them as a warning. “The warehouse is an important place. Who dares to barge in?”
The shorty jumped to the side and carefully sized up the two guards. He smiled and said, “Don’t misunderstand, don’t misunderstand. We’re all on the same side!”
“Who told you to come to this place? Go back quickly. This is not a place for you.”
“Brother, you’ve been guarding here all this time. You’ve worked hard. Why don’t you rest well?”
“Cut the crap. If you continue to linger, we’ll attack.”
“Brother, why are you so heartless? I’m here to inform you.”
“Inform what? We don’t need you to tip us off.”
These two guards were tall and strong. They looked at the little guy in front of them and saw that his strength was so weak. They did not take him to heart at all as this guy was not a powerful person.
They were not on guard against this kid. However, this was a special and very sensitive period. If anything went wrong at this time, they would not be able to bear the responsibility.
“Mother asked me to guard this place for the time being. She asked the two of you to quickly report to the front. The exit in front is about to be closed. Everyone has to report to the front line.”
This little fellow’s words stunned the two of them. They knew that they had to retreat immediately, but what did this have to do with them reporting?
“What nonsense are you talking about? We’ve never heard of such a request before, nor have we heard of this news. If you don’t leave now, we’ll really attack!”
The more the little guy spoke, the more anxious he became. He immediately leaned against the two of them and waved around.
“It’s really the Great General Changming in front who specially sent me over. The two of you hold such an important position, so they naturally have to consider the two of you. Why don’t you believe me?”
The two of them did not take his nonsense to heart at first, nor did they notice that the little seed-like elf crawling on the kid had run to the back.
A baby’s palm appeared behind each of their necks. That little hand did not look very big. Instead, it was cute and pink.
The small palm pinched the necks of the two of them without any explanation.
These two guards were talking to Li Yuanqing just now, but now, they were suddenly silent and were controlled.
The little guy stuck his head out between the two of them. His arms were stretched out long and he looked at Li Yuanqing eagerly, as if asking for permission.
Li Yuanqing nodded slowly and ignored him. He walked straight towards the entrance of the cave.
The little elf behind him was immediately overjoyed after receiving such a permission. The baby’s mouth opened and it was the size of an adult’s head. It swallowed the head of one of the guards.
His two hands were not enough. Another arm reached out from his back and grabbed the guard. He used his hands to stuff them into his stomach.
Although his body was small and exquisite, and he was only half a meter tall just now, he forcefully swallowed the two-meter-tall demon warrior. After swallowing it, his stomach was only round and he burped slightly.
The other guard’s eyes widened. Although he could not move, he seemed to still be conscious. He could see everything that was happening in front of him and could clearly feel the fear gradually spreading around him.
This little guy was harmless, yet he actually swallowed a living person alive. Clearly, his next target was him.
The elf licked his lips and turned to the remaining guard.
Li Yuanqing took a step forward and entered the spinning hole.
There was a restriction array outside, but it was a very low-level array. Li Yuanqing had already casually broken it.
This array formation was connected to the broodmother. If the array formation was damaged, the broodmother would receive the news immediately. However, Li Yuanqing had built a fake information array on this foundation.
It could still send fake news to deceive the other party after the original array formation was destroyed. Now, the broodmother did not notice that the array formation of the warehouse had been destroyed.
This was the warehouse of the Insect Clan. There were mountains of spirit stones and various Dharma artifacts that had been seized from the humans. These assets were all gathered from the thousands of years of accumulation of their race and their wandering lives.
Such a huge treasure was enough to support a human population of a million in any human city for decades.
These insects were thorough and merciless when they plundered. But they did not know how to use them at all. These Dharma artifacts were drowned in the dust and piled up there to slowly rot. The original array formation was also blurry and its effect was greatly weakened.
Most of these were buried in their hands.
Li Yuanqing did not show any mercy. As soon as he entered, he put away all the treasures in front of him into his domain space.
These mountains were forcefully moved over, filling the originally empty domain space.
After a long time, Li Yuanqing finally moved the warehouse clean. The originally slightly crowded warehouse was now empty.
There were many eggs among them.
These eggs looked like insect eggs, but it was difficult to say what they were. If they were said to be insect eggs, but the outer shell was very hard, like an eggshell. However, if they were the eggs of some creature, then their shells were woven from threads.
Although Li Yuanqing had never seen the mother worm lay eggs, he could guess that this meter-tall egg was the descendant of the mother worm.
Li Yuanqing was quite curious about why the Insect Clan could produce so many strange demons. He put those eggs into his domain space as well. At that time, he could try to hatch them. If it was useful, he could leave them behind. If it was useless, he could just kill those little fellows.
It could even be directly given to the Man-eating Vine to increase her strength. It was not a bad choice.
Li Yuanqing glanced around and nodded in satisfaction. His trip here was not in vain.
These demons had been causing trouble here for so long. He should take something back from them. However, it seemed that he had obtained a lot more than he had imagined.
After Li Yuanqing came out of the warehouse, he transformed into his short appearance again. His original plan was to leave after taking the items. He did not owe the Insect Clan anything.
Moreover, under the order of the broodmother, the Insect Clan was about to close the passageway to the Catacombs.
Li Yuanqing wanted to leave early before that to avoid being stuck here forever.
However, just as he was about to leave, the little fellow suddenly became unhappy. He grabbed Li Yuanqing’s collar and insisted on walking inside.
“What are you doing? That Insect Clan’s broodmother is very powerful. I don’t even have absolute confidence in defeating it here. It’s still very dangerous.”
The little fellow looked at Li Yuanqing with teary eyes.
“What are you doing? What’s inside? If it doesn’t take long, we can take a look.”
The little guy immediately cheered again. He jumped off Li Yuanqing’s shoulder and ran inside excitedly, as if he did not care about him at all. He did not even think about safety.
Li Yuanqing had no choice but to slowly follow. Although he knew that the members of the Insect Clan were tense now, this little elf had a special physique. It would be a pleasant surprise if he could find any treasures.
The two of them walked deeper into the cave of the insects.
Moreover, the passageway they were walking down was one step at a time. It seemed like they had fallen thousands of feet into the depths. They did not know when they would reach the end.
As they descended deeper and deeper, Li Yuanqing was a little worried. He had originally said that he would leave after coming in and taking the things away, but he did not expect that he would be delayed. Moreover, that little fellow had no intention of stopping. What should he do?
Li Yuanqing wanted to call back the little elf many times, but he did not do it. He braced himself and continued to follow him down.
As they went deeper, the temperature of the underground cave gradually increased.
In the direction was a huge furnace that was constantly roasting, raising the temperature of this cave space to a very high level.
If there was no spiritual power protection, even Li Yuanqing’s body might not be able to withstand the temperature.
Li Yuanqing waved his hand and a cool protective shield appeared beside him. He watched as the little elf ran very happily in front of him. Such a high temperature did not seem to affect him at all.
The little guy suddenly turned a corner as he ran. He seemed to have fallen and rolled down.
Li Yuanqing hurriedly followed. He looked forward and saw that the little fellow had rolled hundreds of feet forward. He had already arrived at a flat place with a very wide space. There was a circle of pink eggs beside him, and these eggs were still flickering with a faint light.
At the end of the space was a large white thing. It looked very like the body of the broodmother, and it could be seen that the thing was still squirming.
In the center, a demon was lying on the protruding area, its muscles tense.
This guy had a huge gray tail hanging behind his butt and a long and narrow wolf head. At this moment, he was focused on the broodmother in front of him.
The werewolf suddenly trembled. Then, his tense body collapsed to the ground with a plop. He knelt on the ground and panted heavily, as if he had experienced something very exhausting.
