Lord of Mysteries 2: Circle of Inevitability Chapter 23

Lumian’s spirit was completely concentrated.

When things were really about to happen, he wasn’t as frightened as before. Although his body was still trembling a little, at least he wouldn’t have the feeling that he was about to collapse.

“I should have died five years ago. Thanks to Aurora, I am alive now. I have earned five years. What else is there to be afraid of?” Lumian gritted his teeth and cheered himself up in his heart.

In the next second, he saw the already dim light on the floating soil on the surface of the first trap become dimmer.

A figure came to its side, blocking the light that penetrated the dense fog in the sky.

That figure was a half-human, half-beast monster with a shotgun on its back. Its scarlet, blood-like eyes swept towards the ground, and its forward-bending “knees” were bent.

After just one breath, it, wearing a dark jacket and muddy trousers, took off its shotgun, jumped up, jumped over the trap while controlling its height, and landed on the solid but cracked ground.

Almost at the same time, it turned its head, covered with greasy black hair, and looked towards the place where there was some slight movement.

Then it saw a panicked face, got up in a hurry, and tried to hide behind Lumian behind the wall.

While roaring, the monster jumped high again and rushed towards the target.

The position it locked was a little outside Lumian’s original position, lest the opponent turn around and deal a fatal blow while he was not on firm footing.

And Lumian scrambled and disappeared behind the wall.

As soon as the monster landed on the ground, the soil under its feet fell down as if it could not bear the weight.

It had no way to rely on it, followed the mud and the rope net, and fell to the bottom of the suddenly-appearing deep pit.


The sound of the heavy object falling to the ground echoed, mixed with the sound of a mouse screaming.

Seeing this scene, Lumian, who had fled behind the wall, couldn’t help but feel a strong joy in his heart.

The first step was successful!

This instantly made most of his remaining fear disappear, and he picked up the steel fork that was placed beside him and rushed to the side of the trap.

The tenacious vitality of the skinless monster left a strong impression on him, and now the target still has a shotgun, so he did not let his body appear above the deep pit but stopped after a little distance and used a steel fork to stab it indiscriminately.

Suddenly, the steel fork lifted and stopped there.

Immediately afterwards, a powerful force was transmitted to Lumian through the steel fork, pulling him into the trap forcibly.

Lumian was caught off guard and was pulled to slide a step forward.

He didn’t care about observing the situation at the bottom of the deep pit; he threw away the steel fork, turned around, and rushed to the side of the uncollapsed wall.


His back was heavy, as if he had been hit hard by a giant hammer.

Lumian’s throat was sweet, and he felt a distinct smell of rust welling up.
With a plop, he fell to the ground and lost his balance. After rolling several times in a row, he regained control of his body and got up.

Almost at the same time, he saw the half-human, half-beast-like monster jump out of the deep pit.

It held the single-barreled shotgun in its hand, and the jacket on the chest and abdomen was torn, revealing several hideous wounds running through the body. Dark red blood mixed with light yellow liquid was continuously flowing out, and various internal organs were faintly visible inside.

Obviously, the monster was seriously injured by Lumian’s trap, but not to the point where it was completely incapacitated.

When it fell to the bottom of the deep pit, it should have adjusted its body posture in time, avoided the head, chest, and other vital positions, and not caused serious damage to its legs and arms; otherwise, it might not be able to jump out of the trap now.

As soon as Lumian saw the other party’s appearance, he immediately ran into the ruins of the house beside him without hesitation.

This is not a sudden idea but a plan in advance.

After all, he wasn’t sure whether the trap could trap the monster and, if so, whether it could directly disable it.

If not, the other party was only seriously injured, and Lumian was going to play a game of “hide and seek” with it next.

In other words, use the environment to deal with the target, delaying the time as much as possible until it can no longer suppress the injury and both its strength and reaction have dropped significantly.

When the time comes, the opportunity will come.


There was another gunshot, and Lumian’s standing position was filled with lead, and a little dirt splashed up.

Lumian, who shrank behind a half-collapsed wall, did not stop and crawled from the gap in the ruins to the other side using his hands and feet.

Before he had time to stand up, he heard the sound of wind blowing in the air.

The monster jumped over.

Lumian immediately turned around and crawled back to the half-collapsed wall along the gap.

In this way, he took advantage of the many special conditions of the collapsed buildings here, sometimes hiding and sometimes going around, not directly confronting the monster but just avoiding the corresponding attack.

“Hide and seek” is Lumian’s strong point.

Many times before, after pranks, he relied on this ability to escape the fate of being beaten on the spot.

After chasing, fleeing, attacking, and hiding, time passed quickly, and Lumian himself gradually became a little out of breath, and the monster’s running speed, jumping height, strength, and reaction all weakened significantly.

“Wait a little longer, wait a little longer; I still can’t beat the current one.” Lumian hid back in his previous position, leaning his back against the half-collapsed wall, and forcibly controlled the urge to fight back immediately.

pong! His back hurt again, and he flew forward.

The half-collapsed wall he was leaning on behind him flew around with stones and completely collapsed.
The monster didn’t choose to go around and chase this time, but turned sideways and hit the obstacles blocking him heavily.

When it exerted all its strength, the already crumbling, half-collapsed wall naturally couldn’t bear it.

However, the monster also shed more blood because of this, and the ground was dark red.

Although Lumian didn’t expect to be “knocked” like this, he was not seriously injured. He reacted quickly enough, rolled over, and hid behind a pile of house remains made of stones.


The following shotgun bullets took another step back.

After the monster knocked down the wall, it took a lot longer to adjust its posture than before.

It touched the cloth bag hanging around its waist, and seeing that there were no bullets, it simply threw away the shotgun and rushed to where Lumian was.

Lumian shifted his position early and continued to play hide-and-seek.

Of course, he didn’t dare to keep playing like this until the other party’s injury broke out and he fell down. This was because he was worried that the monster would run away after the situation became serious to a certain extent. come.

After going around a few more times, Lumian keenly noticed that the monster’s movements seemed to be a bit difficult.


His heart moved, and he pretended to flee to the side of a collapsed building.

Then he stood there, pulled out the other axes behind his back, and adjusted his breathing.

In the blink of an eye, the monster turned around and appeared in front of Lumian.

Lumian made a decisive decision. Before the other party could see the situation clearly, he held the axe without hesitation and greeted him.

He took a step, turned his body sideways, and lowered his shoulders, intending to use the “lean” method taught by his sister to knock back the monster and then slash at its neck with an axe.


Lumian got between the monster’s arms and leaned heavily on its chest.

But this reliable reaction was beyond Lumian’s expectations. The other party was like a thick wall that couldn’t be hit by anything!

“This…” Lumian’s heart tightened, he rebounded, and he was about to pounce on the ground, forcibly getting out of the opponent’s attack range.

At this moment, the monster stretched out a hand as fast as lightning and pinched his neck directly.

The state it shows doesn’t look like it’s difficult to move!

“Oops, I was cheated!” Lumian felt a pain in his neck and was directly lifted up by the monster, hanging in the air.

There was a creaking sound, and his head quickly became dizzy.

The axe that was swung out in a hurry not only failed to hit the target but was knocked aside instead.

Lumian finally realized that he had been fooled by the monster.

The monster was indeed on the verge of dying, but he still had a fight, so he pretended to be weak and induced himself to attack instead of hiding, and he underestimated its fighting wisdom. He didn’t expect this at all and ended up with this dying monster. struggling situation.

The monster was really close to the limit, and it couldn’t break Lumian’s neck directly, but this didn’t affect the overall situation; it just took a little more time.

In the pain that his neck was about to break and he couldn’t catch his breath, Lumian’s head began to go numb, almost blank.


When he was dying, Lumian suddenly thought of the lady’s words:

She allowed herself to take advantage of her specialness in this dream.

What’s special… Lumian quickly started to meditate with his thoughts close to a state of blankness and no distracting thoughts.

The crimson sun instantly stood out in his mind.

Unlike before, when he used meditation to calm his emotions and let the sun disappear as soon as it was fully formed, he tried his best to keep this sun in existence.

Soon, the voice that seemed to come from an infinite height and seemed to be ringing in his ears pierced Lumian’s head.

Severe pain followed, accompanied by the terrifying feeling that his heart was about to jump out of his chest, which made Lumian forget that his neck was still pinched by the monster, his bones were about to break, he could not keep up with his breathing, and his brain began to lack oxygen.

He fell to the ground.

As a result, the meditation was interrupted, and the indescribably weird sound disappeared.

But Lumian was still in so much pain that he couldn’t check his body’s condition or confirm his surroundings.

After an unknown period of time, he finally recovered from the feeling of dying.

Lumian didn’t care to check his neck; he put his hands on the ground, raised his head, and looked forward.

The half-human, half-beast monster squatted not far away, with its arms propped forward and its head lowered.

At this time, the several penetrating wounds between its chest and abdomen were still dripping blood mixed with a light yellow liquid, and its body couldn’t stop shaking violently.

What’s wrong with it? Frightened by the kind of “special” I showed? While regaining his thoughts, Lumian picked up the axe that fell beside him and moved closer.

Without giving the monster a chance to slow down, he held the axe with both hands and slammed it at the back of the opponent’s neck.

With a pop, the ax sank deep into the muscle and was blocked by the bone.

Lumian made great efforts, drew out his sharp axe, and continued to chop.

Once, twice, and three times, the monster’s head fell to the ground with a splash of liquid, and Gollum rolled aside.

Its body lasted another second before collapsing.

During the whole process, it didn’t show any resistance; it was always trembling.

The next second, Lumian arched his body forward, his hands drooped naturally, and he let the blood on the axe continue to slide down.

Huh, huh, huh. He can finally breathe a sigh of relief.
