“Are you kidding me? Now that the people in the quarantine zone are rioting, and we’re already short on numbers. Where the hell are we going to find more people and ask them to investigate a little, run-down prison?” the officer snapped impatiently at the other end of the call.
“Riot? Weren’t they fine not long ago? Why are they rioting all of a sudden? Did many people suddenly die to the plague?” Zhang Xiaohou asked curiously.
“We have no idea either, the patients all have bloodshot eyes as if they had gone mad, and they kept attacking other people nearby! We are done for, the entire Kakka City is in great trouble!” the officer said.
“We did find…”
“That’s enough, we won’t be able to send people there, and I don’t have time to talk to you, either!”
Zhang Xiaohou was about to say something when the officer directly hung up the call. Zhang Xiaohou did hear a loud noise coming from the other end, and he could faintly recognize the sound of an alarm. It was obvious that the officer was not lying to him, but why would the patients suddenly behave so weirdly when they had only fallen sick to the disease?
Zhang Xiaohou believed it was necessary to tell Mo Fan and the others. The situation had suddenly escalated, as the people were rioting against the local government. If they escaped from the quarantine zone and more people were infected, it would be extremely difficult to resolve the plague!
“Why is the door closed? Mo Fan, Xinxia, are you in there?” Zhang Xiaohou slammed the thick door, yet there was no response from the other side.
He turned around and heard loud noises coming from the cells where the normal prisoners were kept in. The prisoners rammed their way out of the cells and glared at him!
“What is going on here? A riot in the prison too?” Zhang Xiaohou looked at the prisoners with bloodshot eyes, but he did not panic at all.
After all, he was a captain who had led his troop against an army of demon creatures, and had experienced something as epic as the Calamity of the Ancient Capital. In comparison, these prisoners with mere muscle were not so tricky to deal with.
Inside the door, the little Red Demon stood among the serious criminals that were now covered in tentacles. It had no intention to fight them, but it kept giving commands to the criminals, ordering them to charge at the enemy.
“Their evil presence is stronger, most likely because of the evil residing in their hearts,” Xinxia said.
The ordinary prisoners in the cells looked fairly normal before. The most they did was stare wickedly at the three women. However, the serious criminals were much worse. They were not only driven by greed, but the urge to eat humans alive!
“They are still people, so try not to kill them,” Lingling reminded them.
These serious offenders were only being controlled. The evil presence had granted them strength, but they were still humans.
“Brother Mo Fan, Fiona and I will handle these criminals, you can focus on taking out the main culprit,” Xinxia said to Mo Fan.
Xinxia slowly closed her eyes. When they sprang open again, her eyes, normally as serene as a lake, suddenly emitted a ray as sharp as a sword.
Xinxia clearly knew they could not afford to harm the serious criminals, as none of them were sentenced to death. They were also victims of the plague, thus the best approach she could take was attacking their minds!
Spiritual Force was formless, but it was driven into the minds of the criminals at Xinxia’s will. The criminals immediately cried out in pain after receiving the attack, as if their heads were about to burst.
They crumpled to the ground simultaneously. The area of Xinxia’s Mind Puncture was fairly huge. She had managed to take more than a hundred men down within an instant!
“Brother Mo Fan, hurry up, I won’t be able to last for long,” Xinxia said.
“Got it!” Mo Fan did not dare to waste any time. He immediately cast Fleeing Shadow and approached the little Red Demon.
“Come and play with me at the back!” Mo Fan gathered the power of the Space Element between his hands. He forcibly lifted the little Red Demon and tossed it into the cage at the back.
Mo Fan had done so to prevent himself from injuring the serious criminals. Fiona, who was still standing beside Xinxia, was immediately aware of his intention. She immediately set up a water barrier around the criminals, to protect them from his spells, and also buy some extra time if Xinxia could no longer hold them down.
Little Red Demon was infuriated. It thought Mo Fan and his crew were only normal Mages, considering how young they were. It only attacked them to prevent itself from being exposed. To its surprise, the Mages were incredibly strong, well beyond its expectation!
Mo Fan slammed the prison guard monster hard onto the metal wall with a shove.
The little Red Demon had remarkable strength too. It was trying to oppose Mo Fan’s Telekinesis with brute force. It slowly stepped forward and raised its claw.
Mo Fan realized his Space Element was not as formidable as Ai Jiangtu’s. He immediately gave up and utilized his strongest Element instead!
“Lightning Tyrant!” Mo Fan flipped his palm. Lightning arcs immediately gathered like soldiers, and as Mo Fan flung his arm, they whipped fiercely out at the little Red Demon.
The little Red Demon’s defense was rather outstanding, and the lightning whips did not leave any marks on it. Mo Fan did not dare to cast stronger spells before the defensive barrier was fully set up. He could only try and keep the monster at bay with his weaker abilities!
“Brother Mo Fan, we’re done here, finish it!” Xinxia yelled to Mo Fan.
Mo Fan nodded. The lightning in his hand grew stronger. The cracking Lightning Tyrant seemed to be impatient too, as if it had a strong urge to test out its strength.
“Sky Lightning Claw!”
Mo Fan clenched his hands into claws and swung them forward. The dark lightning covering his body turned into dragon claws tearing open the chest of the little Red Demon with destructive force.
The little Red Demon was about as strong as a Commander-level creature. Mo Fan might struggle to handle a Commander-level creature in the past, but the damage of his Lightning Spells had now tripled, and with both the Lightning Tyrant Domain and the Dark Lightning Claw that was basically an Advanced Spell, he would not have any trouble killing this thing.
The lightning pierced through the little Red Demon’s defense and tore its chest apart, and its neck and head were separated too.
Strangely, the little Red Demon did not seem to be dying. Its face continued to wear the eerie grin!
“Your magic might be strong, but you will never kill me!” An evil presence burst out of the little Red Demon’s incomplete body, and it soon fixed its missing body parts, as if it was an undying spirit!
Even the evil spirits of the undead were unable to recover from such serious injuries within an instant, as lightning was fairly effective against them, too!
Mo Fan did not cast the Tyrant Call. He immediately cast a powerful Fire Spell instead by utilizing Little Flame Belle’s strength!
The giant fireball surged forward and left a huge hole in the thick wall of the indestructible prison, allowing the sunlight to pour in…
Mo Fan initially thought the little Red Demon was dead for sure, yet it slowly reclaimed its appearance under the effects of its evil power.
Even the creature with the fastest rejuvenating ability would be unable to recover so quickly after it was burned into ashes. Mo Fan strongly believed it had nothing to do with the creature’s ability to self-heal, but the fact that his magic was unable to deal the critical blow to it!
“I’m not your opponent, but you can’t destroy me either. The city will soon turn into my kingdom!” the little Red Demon screamed in a piercing voice.
Mo Fan’s heart sank.
If the plague spread further, the little Red Demon would grow stronger, too. A few cities had already been infected, and the negative emotions that the victims provided were like nutrients to it. If more people died to the plague, the hatred would reach its peak, and by then, Mo Fan would no longer be able to take the little Red Demon on!
“Mo Fan, this thing is most likely an energy body with its own consciousness. You can’t think of it as an ordinary demon creature, as magic alone isn’t enough to kill it!” Lingling said.
The little Red Demon was indeed one of the most terrifying creatures in the world. Due to the way it was formed, it was invulnerable to most Elements, and Mo Fan had basically tried all his Elements.
Fiona was a Light Mage, and she had tried using her Light Spells, yet the Light Element that was able to drive away any kind of evil presence was useless against the little Red Demon!
It was Mo Fan’s first time going up against such a tricky existence.
Mo Fan was agitated when he saw the little Red Demon that had been smashed into pieces recovering again. He never thought he would encounter something he could not kill with his magic… as he lowered his head and was about to cast some Fire again, he caught a glimpse of the brilliant Essence Orb!
That’s right, the orb is able to absorb energy. Strictly speaking, the orb was able to contain the little Red Demon’s ancestor; the orb might be able to absorb it, too!, Mo Fan thought.
So the little Red Demon could not control the Essence Orb, Mo Fan broke the little Red Demon into tinier pieces and took out the Essence Orb. He then touched one of the pieces with the Essence Orb…
The light of the Essence Orb grew stronger as it absorbed a piece of the little Red Demon. The little Red Demon’s true appearance was revealed once the piece was absorbed into the Essence Orb. It was a puff of cloudy energy, similar to the Soul Remnants that the Little Loach Pendant normally absorbed.
“It worked!” Mo Fan was overjoyed. He was only giving it a try, yet to his surprise, the Essence Orb was able to absorb the evil energy. No wonder the Essence Orb kept emitting a brilliant glow.
“I’ll smash you into pieces and absorb them one by one. I would like to see how smug you are now!” Mo Fan attacked even more violently after discovering the solution to the problem!
