“He still has the bracelet. It contains the antidote to the plague, which Wang Xiaojun exchanged his life for. If it is together with Councilman Lingling, what shall we do with the infected? How do we deal with the army of White Magic Falcons?” said Lingling worriedly.
They would unleash their anger and get their revenge after killing Councilman Luo Mian, but Hangzhou would suffer serious casualties.
The Black Totem Snake did not care too much. He had swallowed Councilman Luo Mian together with the Diamond Shield deep into his stomach, leaving him no chance of escaping.
Mo Fan was still in deep thoughts, when he heard noise coming from the sky. He raised his head and saw clouds of White Magic Falcons flying in their direction!
They were in the valley close to the city. After the valley, the White Magic Falcons would find the houses, residents, streets, schools, and the main quarantine zone where all the infected were kept. Although the residents nearby had been evacuated to prevent the plague from spreading further, once the White Magic Falcons intruded into the city, these flying demon beats would quickly reap the lives of the helpless residents. There was nothing they could possibly do!
The army of White Magic Falcons was getting closer. Beyond the faint mist, Mo Fan could see a silver creature flapping its wings much higher in the sky. It was leading a few other massive demon beasts and flying toward Hangzhou City.
“What is that? The silver-colored one?” said Mo Fan in deep terror.
“It’s the Silver Skyruler, the dominator of West Ridge. It is the reason why the Heavenly Eagles revolted,” said Lingling.
“Things are getting out of hand. God knows how disastrous it would be if the Ruler-level demon beast invaded the city,” said Mo Fan.
The calamity of Bo City was only the work of a Commander-level Darkwing Wolf, and yet so many people had died. What kind of nightmare would a Ruler-level creature and its army, which was big enough to shroud the night sky, bring to the city?
However, in order to resolve the situation, they needed the Red Falcon Herbs inside the bracelet. Even when Councilman Luo Mian was swallowed into the snake’s stomach, he was still clenching it hard, as it was his final bargaining chip. He would destroy the antidote that Wang Xiaojun had brought back, unless they were willing to let him go.
What could they possibly do?
Mo Fan felt extremely lost.
The Black Totem Snake raised his head and uttered a roar at the White Magic Falcons in the air. The White Magic Falcons rapidly flew past them and headed straight for Hangzhou City. Some of them had begun diving, as if they had discovered delicious prey on the ground.
Humans who were not Magicians were extremely weak. They had no chance of protecting themselves.
The Black Totem Snake was infuriated. Hangzhou was considered his territory. How could he allow the demon beasts to act ruthlessly in his territory?
With a wriggle, he traveled across the valley and moved quickly toward Hangzhou City.
His size was like a mountain. The people of Hangzhou City could clearly see his enormous head and body moving toward them despite the distance between them. A deep ravine was left behind where he passed, lining up parallel to the canals flowing out from the city.
The streets were filled with screams. People who were hiding in the buildings could not hide from the claws of the white demon birds. Casualties began to appear. Luckily, the place was one of the earliest parts to be evacuated, thus the situation was not the worst.
The White Magic Falcons poured down like white raindrops. They scattered across the edge of the city. As they were capable of flying, many Magicians were helpless against them. They could only watch them destroying the city and killing the civilians.
More shockingly, a massive snake had just arrived at the edge of the city. The guards were more afraid of it than the White Magic Falcons.
As the Black Totem Snake arrived at the edge of the city, he opened his mouth and spat out a poisonous mist at the White Magic Falcons. Within a few seconds after inhaling the poison, they had turned into stiff corpses on the ground.
The Black Totem Snake’s poison was strong enough to kill the White Magic Falcons instantly. The groups of demon beasts fell rapidly from the sky and smashed into bloody piles as they hit the ground.
The poisonous mist enveloped the sky close to the edge of the city. It slowly formed a poisonous barrier on its edge to define its territory. If the White Magic Falcons trespassed into it, they would turn into stiff corpses instantly.
Thousands of White Magic Falcons had died in the poisonous mist. The army of White Magic Falcons thought they could abuse their numbers to break through the barrier, but every single one of them ended up dead!
The poisonous gas lingered in the sky without spreading toward where the humans were.
The residents thought they were doomed and had prepared themselves for a brutal death. To their surprise, the poisonous mist had stopped the white demon beasts from reaching them. They stared at the Skyscraping Snake who was forcing his way into the city.
“Is he protecting us?” asked an Intermediate Magician. Behind the female Battlemage stood a group of elderly who were being transferred from the aged care center.
These older folks did not receive the order to evacuate in time, as if they had been abandoned in the aged care center. Society had no time to care about their wellbeing, apart from the female Battlemage who had arrived a few moments ago to protect them.
The elderly raised their heads and saw the Skyscraping Snake stopping the invasion of the White Magic Falcons with the poisonous mist. In the midst of their astonishment and joy, they recalled an old tale related to Hangzhou City. It was said that something was protecting the city. It was a gigantic snake who could wall up the city by joining his tail to his head!
The Black Totem Snake stood at the edge of the city. He raised his head, staring at the White Magic Falcons that were targeting him. In his eyes, the White Magic Falcons were like a pack of mosquitoes and flies. They were nothing to be afraid of, regardless of their number.
The massive beast continued to spit out poison. The barrier grew thicker. He would not let a single White Magic Falcon break through!
He suddenly raised his head up high after being aware of something. His glistening eyes looked high up into the sky.
The Silver Skyruler was flying right above him!
Similarly, the Silver Skyruler stared at the Black Totem Snake on the ground. It uttered a furious cry, as if it were aware of a great threat. The sharp cry echoed throughout the entire city!
