    1. giờ, cũng không tùy vào âm thầm lắc đầu, sáu Tinh Đấu đế trung kỳ Ma thú, cho dù sẽ không Không Gian Ngưng Cố, cũng không phải hắn có thể chống đỡ. Tiêu Viêm thấy tự mình công kích không có đạt được chút nào kiến thụ, thế nhưng cũng là không chút nào nổi giận.

      "Leng keng đinh!"

      Khắp bầu trời xích ảnh rơi tới Nghiệt Xỉ Ma Hổ thân thể trên, bộc phát ra một tảng lớn hỏa hoa, này Nghiệt Xỉ Ma Hổ toàn thân khôi giáp đủ để chống đối sáu Tinh Đấu đế cường giả công kích, nhưng thế nhưng Tiêu Viêm trong tay này Dị Hỏa Tuyên Cổ Xích thật sự là quá mức với lợi hại, xích ảnh qua đi, ngay cả kia giáp xác thượng, đều đi ra hiện từng đạo xích ngân.

  7. Thank you so much for this. I guess I didn't have to contact our web design agency london to add this simple widget. I'm not really an expert with these kinds of things.
