The Focus Necklace had come in handy. The water blue glow encapsulated Mo Fan’s cursed Spiritual World. A warm sensation flowed inside Mo Fan’s body. His blood began to flow again, and his muscles no longer felt stiff.
“Dean Xiao really gave me something precious!” Mo Fan looked at the Focus Necklace, thanking the old dean in his heart.
Mo Fan had the Focus Necklace a long time. To Mo Fan’s surprise, it was still extremely useful even in the Advanced Level, and had helped him to avert disaster!
“Shadow Clone!” Mo Fan decisively left the clone behind when he saw the giant mouth approaching. He secretly crept away along the Giant Tactile Centipede Demon’s head with the Dark Noble Mantle.
The Giant Tactile Centipede Demon was extremely big, and its shadow was huge too. Mo Fan boldly took advantage of it!
The Giant Tactile Centipede Demon swallowed Mo Fan’s clone down quickly.
The assistant judges nearby made their moves. If they did not intervene, Mo Fan might die. In addition to that, the Giant Tactile Centipede Demon was quite tricky to deal with. It would be a hassle to force the creature to spit Mo Fan out.
“Humph, I already said that he was asking for it. I did warn him!” Neferu spat coldly.
He had trouble controlling the Giant Tactile Centipede Demon. It was unlikely Mo Fan would survive. As for feeling guilty? Neferu did not feel the slightest bit of guilt at all. They were currently in the middle of a match, thus there was a chance that someone might die. It wasn’t like he didn’t warn the Chinese man!
“I doubt he would die so easily,” Meos murmured. She was quite familiar with Mo Fan. It was unlikely that such a cunning man would die so easily.
Sayed pointed at the Giant Tactile Centipede Demon’s head and yelled, “Look, up there!”
The others followed and saw a black cloak flapping in the wind, just as Mo Fan eerily appeared between two of the Tactile Centipede Demon’s brains!
“If he’s there, who did the Giant Tactile Centipede Demon eat just now!?” Neferu exclaimed.
“It was a clone, that guy’s Shadow Element is high level too!” Meos realized!
The Giant Tactile Centipede Demon was still trying to feel the little cockroach struggling inside its stomach, but it did not feel anything. It was like it had just swallowed a mouthful of air. Normally, a human Mage would blast the walls of its stomach with a few spells, but nothing happened!
Two fiery swords slashed rapidly, cutting two brains in half simultaneously, both burning into ashes.
The Giant Tactile Centipede Demon cried out in pain when the two brains were destroyed.
The creature had eight brains in total, but now it only had one left. If the last brain was destroyed, it would have to go back to Hell!
The Giant Tactile Centipede Demon was infuriated, yet it immediately rolled up to protect its last brain.
Mo Fan chuckled when it saw the creature being extremely cautious.
As he expected, the Tactile Centipede Demons were a bunch of creatures that were only intimidating on the surface. Their ghastly appearance was enough to scare weaker creatures, but when they were up against a strong opponent, they were basically a little bug. It was nothing compared to a creature of the Black Totem Snake’s level!
“Flying Creek Snow Wolf, your turn!”
At Mo Fan’s order, the Flying Creek Snow Wolf dashed forward. He was like a ray of light, going through the gap before the creature curled into a huge fortress!
The Flying Creek Snow Wolf grew braver the more he fought. He was utterly fearless of the Giant Tactile Centipede Demon with only one brain left.
The Giant Tactile Centipede Demon rolled up, trying to turn itself into a giant barrel. The Flying Creek Snow Wolf’s tiny figure was nowhere to be seen.
“Formation of Giant Shadow Spikes!”
Mo Fan was definitely not going to stand aside and watch. At this rate, the Flying Creek Snow Wolf would be crushed to pieces. Mo Fan had to stop the Giant Tactile Centipede Demon from coiling further before the Flying Creek Snow Wolf could destroy its last brain!
The Nyx Regime was established quickly. Several black swords flew at the Giant Tactile Centipede Demon from inside the curtain of darkness.
There was no need to aim. The shadow swords stabbed the creature fiercely. Despite the number of the shadow swords, they were still unable to fully impair the creature’s movement, but it would still slow down!.
“Gravity Space!” Mo Fan stacked the two spells on top of one another. The impairment of the Shadow Spell and the pressure of the Space Element gave the Giant Tactile Centipede Demon no chance to curl up any further.
“We’ll help too!” Mu Nujiao and Jiang Yu shouted.
Mu Nujiao cast the Icebound Coffin. The giant Icebound Coffin descended from the sky and froze a part of the Giant Tactile Centipede Demon’s body.
The Giant Tactile Centipede Demon was still struggling to protect its final brain so it could regenerate again. The strength of undead was their vitality!
The Flying Creek Snow Wolf howled imperiously from inside the creature’s enormous body.
The Giant Tactile Centipede Demon shuddered suddenly. The Flying Creek Snow Wolf jumped out from the gap at the center, holding the creature’s last brain in his mouth!
The moment the brain was separated from the Giant Tactile Centipede Demon’s body, the creature fell dead instantly. Its skeleton collapsed like a building that had lost its pillars. The bones gradually turned into dust and scattered in the air!
“It’s dead?” Mu Nujiao let out a relieved sigh when she saw the enormous creature falling to the ground.
It was done, the battle had finally come to an end!
“Did we win?” Jiang Yu blurted out in disbelief.
The Giant Tactile Centipede Demon’s body was unable to last for long in this world. Its bones soon disappeared after the body collapsed.
Mo Fan had taken away its Soul Remnant. With the Little Loach Pendant’s current level, a Commander-level Soul Remnant had no chance of escaping. It would soon be refined to strengthen Mo Fan’s Stars. As for the Pharaoh Spring, there was no way Mo Fan would give it up, either!
Little Loach absorbed the Pharaoh Spring crazily, not leaving the slightest bit for the Egyptian team. When the Pharaoh Spring filled up Little Loach, it emitted an imperious light. Its temperament suddenly changed significantly!
The resources and time needed for a person with Double Innate Elements to cultivate were absolutely shocking. Without the Little Loach Pendant, Mo Fan would still be stuck in the Intermediate Level. As such, when Mo Fan saw the changes in the Little Loach Pendant, he knew his cultivation was about to skyrocket soon, too!
“How…how is this possible…” Neferu was frozen. Not a single undead was left around him. He fell to the ground in low spirits. He never thought that even the Giant Tactile Centipede Demon would lose to Mo Fan too!
“Our strength is still the undead strategy that was meant to wear them out,” Meos murmured.
The Greek team and the English team had great talents too, and had the ability to take on the Giant Tactile Centipede Demon, yet they could not handle the undead strategy.
Mo Fan was considered the strongest destructive Mage in the tournament, so it was not really a surprise that he managed to slay the Giant Tactile Centipede Demon. The members of the Egyptian team knew they had no chance of winning the match after the secret of the Pharaoh Spring was exposed. The Giant Tactile Centipede Demon was their last struggle, as they were unwilling to accept the outcome!
The Pharaoh Spring had been taken away. Even if the five members of the Egyptian team could still use other Elements, they no longer had the motivation to fight any further.
Without the Undead Element, the Egyptian team would never have been able to make it so far. Mo Fan could easily wipe them out on his own. It was utterly meaningless for the fight to go on.
“I can’t believe it, we were supposed to come in first!”
“We should have stopped after securing second place. Third place isn’t too bad either, at least we’d still have the Pharaoh Spring…”
The team that advanced straight to the grand final would be first if they had won the last match. However, if they lost, they would be placed in third place instead, and second place would be decided among the teams in the mixed battle.
As such, the Egyptian team came third in the tournament after losing the final match.
The reward for the third place was fairly impressive, but losing the Pharaoh Spring was a deadly blow to them.
“The Chinese team wins!”
“The Chinese team is the winner!”
When the main judge declared the outcome, fireworks that were long prepared were already firing into the sky. Their colorful brilliance lit up the face of the members of the Chinese team…
“Ohhhhh, we won, we won!”
“Mo Fan, you’re f**king awesome!”
Jiang Yu and Zhao Manyan lifted Mo Fan up in excitement.
Mo Fan did not expect it at all. He initially thought the two men would be throwing him up into the air. To his surprise, the two men tossed him into the sea instead.
The other two jumped into the water too. The icy seawater failed to cool them down, as their bodies were heating up in excitement and incredible joy.
The others immediately followed when the two madmen led the way. They all jumped into the water and crowded around Mo Fan. The wild splashes were their way of expressing the indescribable joy they were feeling, both men and woman!
“You guys, well done!” Feng Li and Song He stood on the shore and watched the excited students. They could not help but recall their experiences when they were still young. The glory of winning the World College Tournament was absolutely remarkable for these young adults. The victory was extremely motivating. Even Feng Li and Song He were experiencing a surge of emotions.
“Well done what? Come down here too!” the impudent Mo Fan immediately grabbed Feng Li and Song He with Telekinesis and dragged them into the water.
The two advisors did not expect it. Even if they did, they would not want to reject the invitation.
So what if they were old? As long as their hearts were young, and they desired to prove the world wrong when nobody thought the Chinese team would even win the tournament, they were also overwhelmed by the excitement!
More people jumped into the water to celebrate the win after the two advisors were dragged into the water.
“Isn’t Mu Ningxue here?”
“What are you thinking of? I’m warning you, if you dare take advantage of her, I will chop your hands off despite the joy we are sharing!” Mo Fan snapped.
“What were you thinking? I was just thinking that everyone here will turn into ice statues if she came.”
“She must be very happy when she learned that we’ve won. Speaking of which, I have never seen her smile. She’s so pretty, she must be very beautiful when she smiles too.”
“Yeah, without her, there’s no way we could have won the tournament.”
