Chapter 985 Ben’s Lie
Ben felt a little awkward after Lu Yu directly tore apart his lie.
“Lu Yu, don’t overthink it. Why would the Demon Blood Lord make her into a potion?”
“You’re completely imagining things. This is completely impossible!”
“That’s a spirit body,” he gulped and continued. “Her potential for growth in the future is endless. It would be a huge loss to use her blood essence to make potions.”
“The Demon Blood Lord isn’t a fool. He won’t do that.”
“His real goal is to keep Elena in his army so that she can grow quickly and become his right-hand woman.”
When Lu Yu heard this, he could not help but sneer. “Are you kidding me? If it’s really as you said, why the secrecy? You could’ve just invited Elena to join the Lord’s army when she reaches adulthood.”
“It’s like this,” Ben quickly explained. “Joining the army is very tiring, and she will have no freedom. If she’s talented, she might not be willing to join the army of the Demon Blood Lord.”
“As I said before, Elena has never had freedom since she was young. She doesn’t want to be trapped in the army. So, she rejected the invitation of the Demon Blood Lord and refused to join the army.”
“We had no choice but to snatch her over and force her to join us.”
“That’s the situation.” Ben took a deep breath and said, “I’m not lying to you.”
Lu Yu pondered momentarily and still felt that what he said might not be accurate.
There was nothing wrong with the logic, and it was possible that the Demon Blood Lord just wanted to keep Elena in the army.
However, there were other possibilities.
“Where’s Elena?” Lu Yu looked straight at Ben. “I want to see her.”
“Alright, alright. I can take you to her. She just arrived. We haven’t had the time to send her to the Demon Blood Lord yet.”
“Lead the way.” Lu Yu nodded slightly.
He turned around and walked towards the backyard of the villa.
In the corner, he pushed aside the turf and revealed a square iron lid.
He pulled open the metal cover and revealed a staircase leading to the basement.
“She’s in the basement.”
“Should I go down and investigate first?” The Empress asked as she followed behind Lu Yu.
“How can I let you go first? I’ll go in and take a look. They can’t do anything to me.”
“That’s right,” Ben nodded. “We can’t do anything to you. After all, you just destroyed the Dolan family. If we anger you, I’m afraid we won’t end well either.”
Lu Yu walked down the stairs.
After a while, Lu Yu entered a dark room.
The room was very simple. There was only one bed and a kerosene lamp at the head of the bed.
Elena was lying on the bed.
Ben walked down and stood behind Lu Yu. He smiled and said, “Mr. Lu Yu, do you see? She’s right here. No one dares to do anything to her. She’s the one the Demon Blood Lord wants. If we touch her, we will die.”
Lu Yu walked towards Elena and placed his hand under her nose. After feeling her breath, the heavy burden in his heart was lifted.
“Did you give her some knockout powder?” he asked Ben.
“You’ll have to ask Osborne about this. I don’t know what she drank, but since she was sent here, she’s been in a coma.”
Lu Yu continued to look at Elena. Then, his right hand began to transform into the Nightmare Dragon Claw.
“She won’t wake up for a while. The Dolan family has an ancestral recipe for knockout powder. It’s very effective. She will sleep for a day and a night, and there’s no antidote.”
“So, you should give up. As the head of the Orlando family, I’m also helpless about this. I can only wait, and perhaps she’ll wake up during the day.”
Ben announced confidently, as this wasn’t the first time he had seen the Dolan family’s knockout powder, so he was sure that Elena wouldn’t wake up.
Lu Yu placed his right hand on Elena’s body.
The moment he touched her, Lu Yu’s consciousness entered her mind.
At this moment, Bain saw Lu Yu’s right hand change into a huge claw under the dim light. His skin was purple, and the claw was extremely sharp and pitch-black.
Such a transformation made him look like a monster.
The Nightmare Dragon Claw did look very strange and even a little ugly.
It was completely different from the other cool-looking dragon claws.
The effect of the Nightmare Dragon Claw was special.
One of the two major effects was to make the enemy unconscious, and the other was to wake any unconscious person up.
Of course, the most important function was to infiltrate the enemy’s dream and cause mental damage to the enemy.
Lu Yu barged into Elena’s dream.
Lu Yu’s consciousness appeared in a villa in the middle of the night in Elena’s dream.
He raised his head and looked around, surprised to see that the villa was enveloped by something that looked like an enormous birdcage.
There were no exits in the vicinity. This place was like a prison.
The living room of the villa was brightly lit. When Lu Yu walked in, he was surprised to see Elena sitting on the sofa, reading a book.
Lu Yu’s voice was muffled, yet it had attracted Elena’s attention.
Elena raised her head slightly and looked at Lu Yu.
“It’s you? Why are you here?”
“You’re in a dream now. Do you realize it?”
Elena quickly looked around in horror. “I… I’m dreaming? But all of this is so real.”
“I’ll help you return to reality. You’re unconscious.”
Elena looked at Lu Yu blankly, not knowing what Lu Yu would do next.
Lu Yu raised his arms, which both transformed into Nightmare Dragon Claws.
Then, he slashed forward with both hands and tore a spatial rift.
He inserted his hands into the crack and began to pry it open.
The crack grew bigger and bigger.
Suddenly, there was a buzzing sound, giving Elena a splitting headache.
She rubbed her forehead and looked at Lu Yu with worry.
“What are you doing? What is going on?”
She felt terrified and uneasy.
“Let me pull you back to reality!”
The spatial crack in front of him shattered like a mirror. Then, a light flashed.
Lu Yu slowly opened his eyes and saw that Elena was slowly opening her eyes.
She lay on the bed and stared blankly at the ceiling.
Then, she turned around and saw Lu Yu.
“I… as expected, I was dreaming…”
“Where am I?”
At this moment, Lu Yu looked to the side and realized that Ben had disappeared.
“Where did the bastard go?”
