A cold wind blew at the sacred mountain, sweeping the bluish-green petals into the air. The slightly icy floral breeze briefly fondled the faces of the people.
The petals drifting in the wind were incredibly fragile. They soon broke into pieces, scattering in the air as a great storm started pouring down mercilessly.
Ye Xinxia lifted her gaze. Her mood was like the dark and gloomy sky. She once thought the Parthenon Temple had an inviolable, sacred brilliance surrounding it. She once had high hopes when she first arrived at the place, hoping that she could do something with her humble efforts…
However, it turned out that the sacred mountain was a lot more complicated than she had imagined. The Parthenon Temple might have a sacred outer veneer, but it also had the ugliest side to it that had been completely exposed by the cold rain: the disappointing greed of humans!
Why did she even bother putting in so much effort to come here?
She would not mind if she alone was deeply trapped in this swamp, but Mo Fan was also surrounded by the armed force of the Parthenon Temple!
“Maybe I should go with them, I am the only person they want…” Xinxia said.
Mo Fan shook his head. There was no way the Parthenon Temple would let any of them go. In order for Izisha to seize the role of the Goddess, they would surely eliminate every risk possible!
“They are coming,” Asha’ruiya said in a deep voice.
Under the cold rain and the flying petals, Great Muse Mellaura and Great Magistrate Dulanc were flying toward them, followed by a troop of Golden Sun Knights and an army of Silver Moon Knights. The light of their magic armor was bright enough to light up the mountain.
There were four Holy Court Mages behind Great Magistrate Dulanc, too. Their strength was immeasurable. Han Ji, Zhu Meng, Pang Lai, and the others had tried to keep them busy, but their efforts were to no avail.
Mellaura and Dulanc smiled when they saw that the Black Totem Snake’s flesh was badly mutilated.
The magic formation of the sacred mountain had still been powerful enough to inflict serious damage on the Totem Beast. It would prevent them from losing too many elites. After all, even a Super Mage could easily lose their life if they were being careless when fighting against a Supreme Ruler!
“Enough with the struggle, even a Totem Beast has no chance of escaping from the Parthenon Temple!” Mellaura grinned coldly.
The Black Totem Snake was unleashing his Domain in the form of a poisonous mist. The blue poison started to spread across the mountain. The poisonous mist would prevent Mages below the Super Level from coming any closer, preventing the army of Advanced Mages from blasting them continuously with spells. Considering the number of Advanced Mages that the Parthenon Temple had, their spells could easily raze the mountain to the ground. The Black Totem Snake’s scales had cracked open, thus the continuous blasts were still dangerous.
“I don’t understand, why would you go so far and use the Dark Execution? Is it because you feel better when you use it on Wen Tai’s daughter?” Asha’ruiya asked.
“You few, deal with the Black Totem Snake’s poison!” Dulanc ordered his subordinates.
They had many powerful Mages on their side. If they teamed up, they would have a great chance of taking out the Black Totem Snake. However, the Black Totem Snake was incredibly powerful. If a battle broke out, anyone could die in the battle! The number of Super Mages in the world was quite limited. Even losing one was considered a great loss. They did not want to go all out with the Black Totem Snake. The best choice they had was to let the army of Adjudicators and Mages of Faith wear out the Totem Beast slowly, since the creature had already been badly injured by the magic formation!
Dulanc and Mellaura were not in a rush, either. They knew Mo Fan and his crew were like trapped beasts. Even though Han Pang Lai, Han Ji, and the others insisted on protecting them, they were currently in the Parthenon Temple. They just needed to assign a few men to keep them busy while they slowly settled the matter on hand. Everything was going according to plan!
“You are about to die, does knowing the truth really matter?” Dulanc smiled.
“It’s just so I can tell my adoptive father the truth,” Asha’ruiya said.
Asha’ruiya still could not understand why Xinxia had to die.
It was true that Ye Xinxia was Wen Tai’s daughter, but Izisha had already opened her eyes, meaning that the girl was not the key to Izisha’s resurrection. Was Izisha trying to kill Ye Xinxia just because of her hatred for Wen Tai?
If so, they could easily do it behind the scenes. Why would they bother using the power of the Holy Judgment Court on her?
Dulanc did not mind spilling the beans. He pointed at Ye Xinxia and said, “Wen Tai was a very tricky opponent. He knew his death was approaching, so he used the power of the Dark Execution to seal the Soul of the Parthenon Temple inside her body!”
“The Soul of the Parthenon Temple is inside her body?” Asha’ruiya was shocked.
Mo Fan looked at Xinxia too.
“Yes, the Holy Judgment Court didn’t just make something up. There is actually another soul sleeping inside her body, but the soul isn’t Salan, it’s the Soul of the Parthenon Temple that Goddess Izisha needs the most! Since Wen Tai sealed the Soul of the Parthenon Temple inside her body with the Dark Execution, the only way to retrieve the Soul of the Parthenon Temple is by activating the Dark Execution!,” Dulanc declared.Read more chapter on vipnovel.com
It turned out Xinxia’s legs were feeble because her body could not bear the heavy burden of having two souls in it… they were not lying!
However, no one had expected that these people would come up with such a huge lie in order to reclaim the Soul of the Parthenon Temple. They had tricked everyone into believing that Xinxia was Salan. Even the girl thought that the lie was the truth!
If Salan had not shown up and revealed the ugly faces these people had, the others would still be kept in the dark!
“Aren’t you afraid that you will offend the Chinese Royal Palace and the Enforcement Union?” Asha’ruiya pressed.
Mo Fan, Xinxia, and the Black Totem Snake were from China. By now, Song Qiming, Pang Lai, and the others would have learned the truth too. If they still insisted on killing Mo Fan and Xinxia, they would basically fall out with China!
“Chinese Royal Palace and Enforcement Union? Asha’ruiya, how could you say such a thing when you are a member of the Parthenon Temple? Since when did the Parthenon Temple have to be wary of what others think? Do you really think the Chinese Royal Palace and Enforcement Union are a threat to us? Once Izisha claims the Soul of the Parthenon Temple and obtains the Spell of Resurrection, the Chinese might even come and beg us instead. Everyone is scared of death, especially the authorities and the leaders. If we give the Chinese a chance to resurrect someone, do you really think they are going to fall out with us because of these minor characters? The Spell of Resurrection is going to give us control over everything!” Dulanc burst out laughing. In his eyes, Asha’ruiya was simply too naive!
“Izisha already led the Parthenon Temple to a golden age without the Soul of the Parthenon Temple. Once she has the Spell of Resurrection, the five Magic Associations are going to lower their heads to us too! Asha’ruiya, Izisha has always been fond of you. She always saw you as her niece with great potential. She might not be satisfied with Panijia, I’m pretty sure that you know what that means. Why would you bother to go against her and walk on the path that’s going to lead to your death!?” Mellaura said.
“Who did you think helped the Probationary Servant sneak to Izisha’s coffin? I was quite regretful that I didn’t do it myself, or I would have shredded her into minced meat instead!” Asha’ruiya retorted coldly.
“It was you that colluded with Salan?” Mellaura said in astonishment.
“I didn’t know she was Salan, but her suggestion was something that I thought of doing every day!” Asha’ruiya said.
“Well, well, well, you were pretty good at hiding it. Since you’re so displeased with Izisha, I will surely relay your message to her, so she can take care of you!’ Mellaura sneered.
The sky was suddenly filled with the howl of a great Elemental Storm. It was like the ring of a giant knell in the Citadel of Athens.
The Holy Court Mages had driven the poisonous mist away while Dulanc and Mellaura were buying time. The Adjudicators and Mages of Fatih went into their positions on the high ground and fired their destructive spells at the enormous Black Totem Snake!
The first spells that descended upon the area were the Sky-Flame Funerals from the Adjudicators. The sky was set aflame, lighting up half the mountain. The rain continued to pour down with the fire. The flames were so densely packed that there was simply no escape from it.
The rain of fire was like a grand funeral. Destructive flames had filled up the entire sky. It was like the coming of the apocalypse!
How minuscule were mere humans in the face of a terrifying rain of fire at this scale?
The Black Totem Snake raised his head and observed the flames that were pouring down. He let out a furious roar fearlessly!
The Totem Seal flickered on his badly mutilated flesh. The Black Totem Snake leapt and swam up into the sky, drawing a huge, glowing seal along his trail.
The flames poured down from the sky, but those that collided with the seal were dispelled immediately, as if they never existed in the first place.
“Keep it going, kill that Totem Beast!” Dulanc said coldly to Lanjin behind him. Lanjin waved his hand and fired a blinding white light into the air, signaling the army of Mages to attack again!
The Adjudicators took a brief rest while lots of Star Patterns and Star Constellations lit up another mountain nearby. Two thousand Mages of Faith cast their magic. Countless wind spells combined into an enormous, black tornado that connected the sky and the ground…
The black tornado was a lot bigger than the Black Totem Snake. It wriggled and approached rapidly with overwhelming, tearing force!
