Tales Of The World Devouring Serpent - Chapter 26
“Damn, why was I so careless!”
Fang Yun blamed himself internally, he is in the grassland, clearly visible from the sky, but he still got distracted, thinking about other things.
Shaking his head, Fang Yun forced himself to calm down.
“I shouldn’t be panicking right now, I should think about countermeasures!”
Thought Fang Yun internally, his eyes staring at the eagle, not leaving it for even one second.
The shadow of the eagle is getting closer and closer to himself, causing Fang Yun heart to beat faster and faster. Fang Yun even felt that his heart may explode.
But even so, he still didn’t take his eyes off the eagle, his body motionless, like a statue.
If he moves now, the eagle who is diving still has enough time to adjust the fall angle, and kill him.
So Fang Yun has to wait for the right moment, the moment the eagle almost reach him, not giving him the change to adjust mid-flight.
He tensely watched the eagle falling, not even daring to blink.
Fang Yun knows that this idea is too dangerous, one wrong action and it’s game over, but this is the only way to survive that he can think of now.
Suppressing the impulse to escape, Fang Yun stared at the eagle without as much as blink, fearing that he would miss the best chance to escape.
Fang Yun can clearly see the steel-like claws and the sharp eyes of the eagle staring straight into his eyes.
Under the gaze of Fang Yun, the two iron claws almost reached his head, as if the next moment, they would slam him into the ground and tear him apart.
Fang Yun immediately tensed, tightening his muscles, the next moment, he instantly flashed to the side like a lightning bolt.
Fang Yun’s body flew out, crossing a distance of several meters in the blink of the eye.
The eagle seeing that Fang Yun is trying to escape directly stretched his legs and grabbed towards Fang Yun body, barely managing to grab Fang Yun tail.
Fang Yun feeling that his tail was fixed, immediately knew that things are bad, gritting his teeth, he endured the pain and forcibly pulled his tail.
Fang Yun immediately felt a burning pain in his tail, like someone using a hot knife to cut his tail into pieces.
However, having experienced multiple evolutions, and the pain that comes with them every time, his pain tolerance has increased tremendously, so even if he is in pain, his escape speed did not slow down.
Twisting his body, he crawled at his fastest speed, crossing several meters each second.
The eagle body landed on the ground, waving its wing to stabilize itself. Looking at Fang Yun, who was fleeing in front, the eagle quickly waved his wings, flying toward Fang Yun.
”Damn, this bastard is going to catch up!”
Fang Yun hatefully though, twisting his body even harder, he now hated that he didn’t have 18 legs to help him escape
”Hide in the bushes, between trees!!”
He screamed internally, looking at the bushes that are getting closer and closer, but the closer he got, the more nervous he was.
He yelled in his mind, suddenly, a black shadow appeared above his body.
It is the eagle who caught up!!
Feeling the shadow above his head, Fang Yun didn’t panic anymore, instead, he gathered all his strength, he slammed into the ground, using the counterforce he jumped into the bushes like a cannonball.
The moment he entered the bushes, a black shadow chased him from the rear.
The eagle wanted to catch Fang Yun, but all he caught was the air, instead, the momentum caused him to plunge into the bushes.
The branches hit the eagle’s body, causing him to scream. Feeling the pain in his body, the eagle waved his wings wanting to get out of the bushes.
Pieces of feathers dropped on the ground as the eagle finally got out of the bushes.
But at the moment it wasn’t as elegant and majestic as before, instead, its feathers were quite dirty and messy and blood was falling from a scratch on its head.
Fang Yun didn’t dare to breathe loudly, for fear of exposing his position, even though the eagle isn’t likely to run into the bushes.
He carefully looked at the eagle outside the bushes, now that he thinks about it, this is the first time he really saw the appearance of an eagle this close.
While this eagle is not a particularly large one, it’s sharp eyes and claws still made Fang Yun tremble slightly.
Fortunately, he ran fast, If he had even a tiny bit of hesitation, he would have likely met his end.
”Target locked, goshawk, avian, raptor, can provide two hundred bio-energy point.”
While Fang Yun was examining the eagle, the system mechanical voice sounded in his mind, causing him to be surprised, what surprised him however was that the eagle can provide twice the amount of bio-energy than the hare he previously ate.
But looking at its size, it shouldn’t be that different from the hare, both should be around 20 pounds or 9 kg.
Fang Yun guessed that maybe in addition to the size, the organism ranking on the food chain should have an effect on the bio-energy it provides.
The eagle stared at the bushes for a while before deciding that it’s impossible to catch Fang Yun this time, waving his wings, he flew into the sky.
Flying two laps around this area, before screaming unwillingly, then flying away.
Seeing that the eagle disappeared, Fang Yun finally completely relaxed, drilling out of the bushes, the branches hitting his scales made him uncomfortable.
Especially when they touched his tail, it caused him burning pain.
Fang Yun laid next to the bushes, straightening his body to see his tail.
Due to him being chased by the eagle, he didn’t have time to see check his injuries.
Looking at the wound on his tail, Fang Yun couldn’t help but sigh.
He saw three bloody scars about 20 cm long each, the scales and flesh is rolled around the scars, and the blood is gushing out.
Seeing his scars, Fang Yun had a lingering fear.
If the power of that eagle was a little bigger, his tail would have been abolished, and even if he escaped, the injury would have been difficult to heal, maybe he would have died of excessive bleeding.
Of course, it’s not that Fang Yun thinks that the power of that eagle was weak, instead, he is sure that his survival this time is the credit of the skill ” Skin Resistance”
If there was no such skill to increase his defense, the iron claws of the eagle would have definitely penetrated his flesh and blood, maybe he wouldn’t even have the chance to escape.
And that is only by upgrading “Skin Resistance” one time, if he had upgraded it 3 or 4 times, the eagle wouldn’t have been able to even scratch him.
With this experience, Fang Yun is even more eager to upgrade that skill once again.
Unfortunately, that skill requires eight Skill points for each upgrade.
Letting out a sigh of regret, Fang Yun crawled back to the big pine tree.
Because of his injury, he couldn’t crawl that fast, causing the sky to completely darken before returning to the pine tree.
Looking at the big pine tree in front him, Fang Yun took a deep breath.
At the moment, he is like a company employee who worked hard for the day, dragging his tired body back home.
Despite being physically and mentally tired, he relaxed upon the sight of his home.
Crawling to the foot of the pine tree, he heard a worried cry, looking up he saw the squirrel standing on a branch, looking at him worriedly.
He couldn’t help but be amused and touched. Was this little guy standing here waiting for himself?
