Chapter 456 Han Xuefei’s Trust
The short exchange of blows allowed Huang Kai to witness Lu Yu’s strength.
This made him more cautious, not daring to be careless.
“Come on, let me see if you have what it takes to rob me!” Lu Yu goaded him.
At that moment, the initiative was with Lu Yu.
Huang Kai could only attack passively, as he would soon lose his combat ability since he was burning up.
He clenched the handle of his sword and rushed toward Lu Yu.
A layer of energy fluctuation surged from his sword.
He swung out, and the piercing aura that had condensed on the blade’s edge lashed out at Lu Yu.
He had used a skill that enhanced his attack, allowing him to slash from a long distance.
The previous exchange made it clear to him that Lu Yu’s speed and mobility were quick.
If he continued to take Lu Yu head-on, it would be difficult for him to gain the upper hand.
He understood that it was difficult for him even to land a hit on Lu Yu.
Regarding combat experience, Huang Kai was no match for Lu Yu.
Lu Yu could accurately judge each of Huang Kai’s moves and counterattack simultaneously.
The sword slashes that Huang Kai released crashed into Lu Yu, instantly penetrating his body.
Just as Huang Kai’s lips were about to curl up, he saw Lu Yu’s figure disappear.
What he had hit was just an afterimage.
He sharply sensed that someone had appeared beside him.
He quickly turned around and slashed out with his sword.
Lu Yu’s attack was the first to land, kicking into Huang Kai’s knee and causing him to lose his balance.
He raised his hand and hit Huang Kai’s wrist, which was wielding the sword.
The decisive blow numbed Huang Kai’s right hand, and he almost lost his grip on the knife.
Lu Yu took the opportunity and attacked with his right claw, aiming for Huang Kai’s chest.
The sharp claws made five cuts on Huang Kai’s armor, slowly piercing his chest.
Lu Yu didn’t aim to break through his defense.
His armor-penetrating skill was good, but it wasn’t necessary.
This claw attack was his Rotten Claw attack.
Lu Yu believed that as long as the side effects occurred, he would undoubtedly win!
The claws pierced through Huang Kai’s skin, and the strong corrosiveness made a sizzling sound.
Wrinkles appeared from the wound and began to spread.
Huang Kai suddenly felt his body getting weak.
He retreated and looked at Lu Yu in panic.
His chest and back were still burning with green flames, but this bout of weakness wasn’t because of these flames.
He could feel that his body’s functions were deteriorating.
Although it wasn’t doing so at a fast rate, he would lose his combat ability in a few minutes if this continued.
Lu Yu only needed to stall him to win now.
“You bastard, I’m going to kill you!”
“Go to hell!”
Huang Kai panicked when he felt the arrival of death.
He didn’t panic when he was burning, surrounded by those inextinguishable flames, but now it was a different story.
Initially, he thought that as long as he killed Lu Yu, everything would be fine, and the matter would be over.
After this exchange, he realized he couldn’t even defeat Lu Yu in battle.
At most, the two of them were evenly matched.
Under such circumstances, the only thing he could do was wait for death.
He raised his head and looked at Lu Yu, his tone flustered.
“You… what did you do to me?”
He lowered his head and looked at his hands, surprised to find that there were many wrinkles on them.
“No, how can there be so many wrinkles on my hands? This is impossible.
Only people of my grandfather’s generation have such wrinkles!”
He gradually realized and understood that he was feeling weak because his body was aging!
“You made my body age! What’s going on?”
He panicked as this was the first time he had seen such a skill.
He had never heard of something like this before.
Lu Yu looked at him and said, “Now, you should be regretting trying to rob me, right? You know, you shouldn’t just assume that everything’s yours.”
Huang Kai knelt on the ground with one leg, his expression indifferent.
It was as if he had given up struggling and was ready to accept his fate.
Suddenly, he laughed.
“Look around you; I doubt you can continue to say those words!”
Lu Yu turned his head to look at his surroundings.
He was shocked that Han Xuefei and the others had all been captured.
Their hands and feet were tied, sitting close to each other.
These attackers didn’t kill them because they saw Huang Kai on the verge of death.
If they did, Huang Kai would die as well.
At that moment, Huang Kai stood up.
His tone became arrogant once again.
“Put out the fire on my body and remove the effect that’s making me age!”
He gave the order in a commanding tone.
Lu Yu looked at him with a calm expression.
At that moment, one of Huang Kai’s lackeys came to Han Xuefei and grabbed her hair, saying, “You’re the daughter of the Han family, aren’t you? How dare you go against us! We’ll bankrupt your Han family with one word, believe it or not!”
Han Xuefei’s heart skipped a beat as she knew they did have the ability to do so.
As long as they shut down the Han family’s business, bankruptcy was only a matter of time.
“If you want to protect your family, then join us.
There’s no future for you if you follow that man.
Today, all of you will die here except you!”
Hearing their request, Han Xuefei was stunned.
She began to struggle internally.
In the current situation, none of them was a match for these people.
Although Lu Yu could kill Huang Kai, he might not be able to handle this small team of seven to eight people.
Moreover, they would die anyway if Lu Yu abandoned them, even though Huang Kai would die too.
“Han Xuefei, you’re the young lady of the Han family.
Do you want to be the jinx of your family? Would you be happy if I exterminated your family?” Huang Kai growled in a low voice, threatening her.
Han Xuefei’s gaze was on Lu Yu.
Although she looked calm on the surface, she was panicking internally.
Although she usually looked cold like an iceberg, how could she stay calm in this situation?
Finally, she looked at the staff in her hand, hesitated momentarily, and gritted her teeth.
“I believe you!”
She looked at Lu Yu and declared quietly.
She knew that even if she joined Huang Kai’s gang, she wouldn’t have a good ending, especially in such a desolate place.
If they wanted to kill her, she wouldn’t be able to do anything.
If she joined the enemy to deal with Lu Yu, she might really lose her chance of survival.
Hearing Han Xuefei’s words, the attackers were instantly furious.
“You bitch, what did you just say?”
A man glared at Han Xuefei and threatened her fiercely.
Lu Yu looked at Huang Kai’s underlings and said, “Don’t worry, all of you will die here today since you all dare try and rob us!”
