The Almighty Dragon General Chapter 2894The distance between the foot of the mountain to the peak was not far.
Even so, James took three days to arrive at the peak.
Now, he was only a few hundred meters away from the finishing line.
As if he had experienced a fierce battle, he was currently in a wretched state.
He was feeling great discomfort throughout his body, and he could not exert even a single ounce of strength.
He lay on the ground, his life hanging by a thread.
Even breathing now required a great deal of effort.
Currently, he was the closest to the finishing line.
Though he was resting on the ground, his soul was being crushed.
James knew that he would have to end this as quickly as possible.
The longer he dragged this out, the lower the chances of him reaching the finishing line.
If this continued, he would slowly be crippled.
He stood up with great difficulty and took a step forward.
Immediately, he collapsed to the ground, and he began bleeding profusely all over his body.
Gritting his teeth, he held on.
Standing up once more, he pressed on.
Just like that, he would take a few steps forward before collapsing to the ground.
Though he was only a few hundred meters away from the finishing line, he could not reach the peak even though a day had passed.
Meanwhile, many other alchemists behind him were pressing on with great difficulty.
Upon seeing these alchemists who were close to reaching the finishing line, the Lord and Myrddin’s expressions turned solemn.
The Lord asked, “Myrddin, can they reach the end?” Myrddin shook his head and said, “I don’t know.
Though they’re close to reaching the end, I sense that they won’t be able to hang in there for much longer.
Let’s wait and see.
A few may reach the end.” “Did we seriously go to such great lengths just for a handful to reach the end?” The Lord asked puzzledly.
Myrddin said, “What’s the point of having so many when we only have a single spot?” “True that.” The Lord nodded.
At that moment, James was only a hundred meters away from the end.
However, it seemed to be an insurmountable gap.
As he turned back, he noticed there were many alchemists behind him.
The closest one was merely a couple of meters away.
At that moment, he no longer wished to hold back.
He catalyzed Sacrilegious Ascension, and his strength increased drastically.
As his strength rose, his Soul Power grew more powerful.
Naturally, this decreased the pressure the Magic Circle had on him.
Since the pressure had diminished, he strode forward and walked toward the finishing line.
This time, he easily arrived at the end.
The moment he arrived at the peak, he dispersed Sacrilegious Ascension and sat on a lotus position on the ground to heal his injuries.
Seeing this, the Lord was delighted.
As he walked toward James, who was healing his injuries, he said smilingly, “You’ve done well, my friend.
You managed to distinguish yourself from the group of alchemists.
Where do you come from?” James glanced at the Lord.
The Lord was only about thirty years of age.
He was wearing a pleasant smile on his face.
Faced with a Lord of a realm, James did not panic at all.
Wearing a composed expression, he said calmly, “I’m not affiliated with any sects.
I’m a rogue cultivator.” Seeing that James was not willing to divulge any information, Daley Yisroel the Lord roughly guessed that he must have suffered injuries and did not have much strength to speak.
He did not inquire further and instead handed him an elixir.
‘This is a healing elixir.” James glanced at Daley and accepted the elixir, saying, ‘Thanks.” Then, he swallowed the elixir.
Immediately, he could feel a warm current circulating throughout his body and rejuvenating his shattered spine.
