“You killed it? Did you kill the Scarlet Rending Demon?” Ai Jiangtu blurted out in disbelief. He did not expect Mo Fan’s strength to be that shocking!
“Is there anyone else here?” asked Mo Fan in return.
“You… how did you do it? It’s an actual Commander-level creature; we couldn’t even do anything to it when we fought it together before!”
“That’s unbelievable, we thought you were dead for sure!”
Mo Fan’s teammates were completely dumbfounded. As Mo Fan said, he was the only one on the island, and the Scarlet Rending Demon’s corpse was lying right there. Who else could it be if it wasn’t him?
Yet, how did he do it? Even a few Advanced Magicians would have had difficulty fighting a Commander-level creature, let alone killing it…
“It seems like the Scarlet Rending Demon was more injured than we thought, I bet we could have killed the creature if we continued to attack the other day,” harrumphed Gong Yu coldly.
Most of the team agreed with Gong Yu’s conclusion.
It was the only explanation possible. The Scarlet Rending Demon was severely injured, and Mo Fan was able to focus on its weak point to kill it. Otherwise, there was no way a Magician their age could solo kill a Commander-level creature!
Even if that was the case, it was still shocking!
When they remembered that Mo Fan was only a substitute, somehow they felt they would feel better if they had discovered Mo Fan’s corpse instead.
Mo Fan was too lazy to explain to them, too. However, Ai Jiangtu never shifted his gaze away from Mo Fan.
He knew the Scarlet Rending Demon’s injuries better than anyone else. The creature was indeed injured, especially the effects of Demon Torture, which stopped the creature from controlling the sea water. However, the Scarlet Rending Demon was still very powerful because of his Commander-level strength and other capabilities. The fact that Mo Fan was able to kill the creature implied that Mo Fan was a lot stronger than he originally thought!
Nanyu had met Mo Fan before. She knew about his Double Innate Elements, thus she could not help but wonder if Mo Fan was hiding some other stronger Elements on purpose?
Nanyu did guess right. Although Mo Fan’s strongest Element was Fire, the truth was that the combination of his Fire and Summoning Elements was even scarier. With little Flame Belle’s Possess, not only did he have two types of fire, he could also acquire little Flame Belle’s ability to transform his appearance and control flames, increasing his combat ability significantly!
Now that the Scarlet Rending Demon had been dealt with, the hidden threat was finally resolved.
The team carried Mo Fan back along the same path of ice. Mo Fan could not help but look at Mu Ningxue when he saw the ice that remained solid even now.
Mu Ningxue happened to be looking at him too. She was having mixed feelings after learning that Mo Fan was actually still alive. On the other hand, the strength that Mo Fan had displayed greatly exceeded her expectations. Somehow, the man who she thought she was familiar with suddenly had lots of secrets she was unaware of.
“Don’t worry, the injuries are nothing, I’ll be jumping and hopping around in a few days!” Mo Fan smiled at Mu Ningxue warmly.
The others had told him that Mu Ningxue had rushed here by freezing a path across the sea right away. Mo Fan had no choice but to marry her to repay her kindness.
Mu Ningxue remained silent, returning to her usual cold self.
It was normal for her to worry about Mo Fan, since the relationship between her and Mo Fan had been subtle for a long time. Mu Ningxue did not want Mo Fan to die, but that did not necessarily mean she had feelings for him. She had no time to waste on things like that…
“I’ve given you my promise that I’ll visit your Mu Family with a great betrothal gift. How can I possibly die here? How about after the World College Tournament? Our age is just about right, too,” added Mo Fan.
Mo Fan was like a psycho that could perform a whole drama all by himself. Even if the others remained silent, he could still proceed with the plot as he desired. No one that could stand his shamelessness. Besides, Mo Fan was also familiar with Mu Ningxue’s personality. He strongly believed that just a little shamelessness was nowhere enough to pry open her heart. Only a completely shameless person like him had a chance.
As he thought, Mu Ningxue’s face turned even colder when she heard Mo Fan mention a betrothal gift. She had never met someone who could talk so much nonsense when he was injured! The Scarlet Rending Demon was a Commander-level creature, yet it was so useless that it couldn’t even kill a mere Mo Fan; she couldn’t even enjoy a moment of silence!
Mo Fan had been repeating the same thing for days, thus most people in the team believed that they were friends since childhood who were engaged to one another. Otherwise, Nanyu would not have even told Mo Fan about Mu Ningxue’s reaction. On top of that, Mu Ningxue immediately came to his rescue by building a fifty kilometers long ice bridge as soon as she received the news!
Mo Fan was dropped on a bed to rest as the team returned to Feiniao City.
Not long after, Zhao Manyan paid him a visit. His expression said that he had predicted it all. “I knew you wouldn’t die so easily… I know what you want to ask me, Nan Rongni’s healing ability is awesome; the kid Xiao Di would have died if it was any other Intermediate Healer, but Nan Rongni managed to save his life. She even gave him a blessing that will let him grow up healthier than ever.”
Mo Fan let out a relieved sigh. At least they managed to save the kid’s life by putting their own at risk.
“You want to know who’s responsible for the cases? It’s more complicated than we initially thought, the truth might even shock the whole nation…” said Zhao Manyan.
“Did we find the truth?” asked Mo Fan.
“Nope, the trace ends here in Feiniao City. We only found the one responsible here in Feiniao City; the Enforcement Union will deal with him… but according to Jiang Yu, it implicates even more people that are out of his reach, so he can only pass it on to the five advisors,” said Zhao Manyan.
“Are you telling me that incidents like this aren’t just happening here in Feiniao City?” Mo Fan asked in surprise.
The missing cases only happened because of the Scarlet Rending Demon and the Scarlet Soaring Demons’ weird obsession with human children. Why was the situation more complicated beyond that?
“The advisors have stopped us from investigating further. They told us that we’ve done them a great favor,” said Zhao Manyan.
For some reason, Mo Fan was not glad to hear that.
Hopefully the people assigned to investigate it were determined to seek out the truth like they had, at least to prevent cases like this from happening again.
“By the way, someone asked the advisors to pass you a thing, something that you kept mentioning at the Ancient Capital,” said Zhao Manyan.
“What is it?” asked Mo Fan.
“A ragged feather robe, but to be honest, that thing is too ragged and ancient… what do you even need it for? They even said it was to repay you for what you did at the Ancient Capital… hey, are you listening to me?” said Zhao Manyan.
“Oh, give it to me, I’ve waited a long time for it,” said Mo Fan.
Zhao Manyan had no clue what the ragged robe was for, yet Mo Fan was extremely excited. He never thought old man Han Ji would actually manage to get it for him. The robe was in the sublimest display in the museum. It was one of the rarest objects in the world, with an extraordinary background!
It was only ragged because of its age.
It was called the Celestial Phoenix Feather Robe. Mo Fan was fond of it when he saw its original appearance using computer simulation. He was determined to restore it!
It would be the perfect gift for Xinxia!
Mo Fan had a regret when he was surrounded by the endless skeletons in the Space of Death. Since he had survived it, it was time for him to fulfill it!
