A thick pillar of smoke rose into the sky. The weird smell of burning hair and gunpowder hung heavy in the air. Su Xiao frowned at the smell.
As his sight was blocked by smoke, he could not judge the exact position of the huge tiger.
The sound of the angry tiger came from the thick smoke. At hearing this sound, Su Xiao focused his attention while loosening his muscles.
Because tense muscles will slow your reaction, they would be a fatal weakness during the fight.
He let the long sword in his hand casually hang down, with the sword’s tip resting against the ground.
The huge tiger did not show itself, it was hiding in the thick smoke, but Su Xiao could feel that it was already stalking him.
A strong wind suddenly blew from the forest, dispersing the smoke.
At that time, a huge, smoking figure became visible. It was that giant tiger.
The tiger that appeared in Su Xiao’s sight was drastically weakened. The long fur on its body was burnt, and patches of burned skin were visible.
Its huge body was seriously injured, with countless iron nails piercing his skin.
The most serious injury was its left eye, it was surrounded by iron nails, and black, red liquid flowed out.
After noticing the tiger’s injuries, Su Xiao smiled. Even though the tiger did not die, with this kind of injury, it would lose at least ninety percent of its fighting ability. Su Xiao’s trap had proven useful.
Humans were the most dangerous creature in nature, after all.
To this huge tiger, Su Xiao was not even as tall as its leg.
Still, for an unknown reason, Su Xiao’s heart started beating faster. Fighting against this kind of massive enemy was actually exciting him.
Without waiting for the giant tiger to attack, Su Xiao rushed forward, sending dead leaves flying. He arrived in front of the giant tiger in a few quick steps and slammed his long sword into one of the giant tiger’s front paws.
Blood splashed wildly from the front paw of the giant tiger, with [dragon flash]’s rating of 10. It was surprisingly easy to cut the large tiger’s skin and muscles apart.
The huge tiger wailed in pain, still dizzy from the explosion and unable to react with its usual speed.
When the huge tiger was finally prepared to fight back, Su Xiao had already jumped aside into the direction of its injured eye. He directly entered the tiger’s blind spot.
The claws of the tiger were continuously scratching forward, shining in metallic luster.
Seeing an opportunity, Su Xiao’s hands clasped the handle of the sword firmly as he slashed at the tiger’s claw.
Actually, he chose to attack the tiger’s claw because of the height difference. He had no way to actually directly attack its throat or head.
Because of those claws, Su Xiao did not dare to attack the important parts of the huge tiger imprudently.
But it was no big deal, he still had a few hours to finish the task, and the tiger’s odds of survival were slim.
The tiger was struggling. With how much blood is lost, it would collapse at any moment.
The huge tiger was aware of this as well. It stared at Su Xiao resentfully with its one good eye but wanted to flee at the same time.
Actually, most beasts will choose to run away when they are in such an extremely bad situation, except when they are protecting their offspring.
Escaping from danger was not only an instinct of humans but also of animals. Furthermore, this massive tiger was actually quite intelligent.
The huge tiger was panting heavily, and its claws were pressed into the ground, prepared to run away at any moment.
After coming this far, how could Su Xiao let this tiger run? He had already spent his precious time setting this trap.
When the huge tiger was attempting to leave, Su Xiao continued to slam his [Dragon flash] on its body, but only left a few marks.
Looking at the Hp bar on the tiger’s head, Su Xiao saw that only 8% were left.
Maybe if the enemy was someone who had access to the ‘Reincarnation Paradise,’ he would explode with power even with only 10% hp or lower left, but someone normal would be extremely weakened after reaching that state.
The tiger could not even move fast. Its attacks came scarcely. It only wanted to run away.
Su Xiao pierced his sword into the foreleg of the tiger.
The sound of the blade passing through the muscles was very special. Su Xiao clearly felt the slight vibration of the blade when the muscle was split through his grip.
The giant tiger wailed at the deep wound that appeared on its leg, and blood splashed from the wound. As he pulled out the sword, Su Xiao clearly saw that the bone on that leg was cleaved apart.
That meant that the huge tiger had already lost the opportunity to flee. It would definitely die that day.
Maybe the huge tiger was aware of this fact as well, as it roared at Su Xiao.
Su Xiao stood in front of the giant tiger. His shirtless upper body was dripping wet with the tiger’s blood.
The warm and smooth feeling of blood only made Su Xiao more violent.
Su Xiao smiled broadly and stood in front of the violent beast, which was as big as a house.
The tiger had been the ruler of Colubo Mountain for several years and had never been afraid of any creature.
But at this time, this huge beast was a bit afraid of Su Xiao because this human who was smiling may take away its life.
A yell of anger mixed with fear spread through Colubo Mountain.
Su Xiao rushed towards the giant tiger while changing his direction from time to time.
The huge tiger lowered his body and seemed to prepare to fight for its life with Su Xiao.
The tiger’s claws were like a hurricane moving toward Su Xiao. This giant tiger had actually hidden its full speed and only revealed it now. It seemed ready to take Su Xiao with it.
If Su Xiao were to be touched by this attack, even if he wouldn’t die, he would be severely injured.
Su Xiao carefully looked at the tiger as he stood in front of him. The difference in strength was too big.
If he had been directly attacked by the giant tiger, the fight would probably have ended with his loss.
Its attack came from the front, and Su Xiao didn’t choose to retreat. He chose to face the tiger.
Just as Su Xiao was about to be scratched to ribbons by the tiger’s claws, he fell to his knees and leaned his body backward to lower his height.
The tiger’s claw, which had a strong bloody smell, slid past Su Xiao’s nose, and the strong wind swept his hair.
Even the leaves on the ground were lifted, but thanks to kneeling, Su Xiao managed to escape the tiger’s claws.
Su Xiao pressed off the ground with his hand and jumped up. He was now directly under the tiger’s head, the throat of a huge tiger clearly visible.
Su Xiao didn’t hesitate at all and swung his sword.
Blood splashed on his body.
Unnoticed, while Su Xiao was fighting with the huge tiger, there was a small and thin person hiding in the distance. Its silhouette looked like a child.
“Wow, so strong.”
The shrubs shook, the straw-hat-wearing child’s head peaked out of the shrubs while still being covered with green leaves.
