After Mo Fan slightly scattered the black aura that was shrouding Hayla, the creature quickly obtained more energy from the Dark Undying Worms. It seemed to have grown stronger after obtaining the energy that the Dark Undying Worms had collected from humans.
It slowly leaned forward and aimed its horns at Mo Fan.
The oddly-shaped horns transformed into a pair of horns even bigger than the creature itself. It slammed the horns in Mo Fan’s direction. The whole place was trembling from the overwhelming force.
The black horns almost reached the sky. Mo Fan could sense a formidable force coming his way when the creature swung the horns at him. It felt like thousands of creatures with black horns were charging in his direction. The defense that Mo Fan had set up with his will collapsed instantly. The horns knocked him flying…
The black horns left Mo Fan no chance to dodge or escape and he slammed into the black barrier. Blood splattered across the dome. The unstoppable horns almost smashed the barrier of the Dark Execution Ground to pieces!
Xinxia could not stop tearing up after seeing the bloody wounds all across Mo Fan’s body.
Hayla was still growing stronger with the help of the Dark Undying Worms, but Mo Fan was left with more wounds and bruises as the fight continued. His strength was declining, too. Xinxia was extremely worried that Mo Fan would die to Hayla. Was there any meaning for her to live if he died?
Xinxia was trying her best to break free from the control of the Stones of Guilt. The Soul of the Parthenon Temple seemed to have partially woken up in the Dark Execution Ground. A gentle, blue light spread into her surroundings, battering the Stones of Guilt around her.
Xinxia could feel a gentle force flowing through her body. She intuitively glanced at the Soul of the Parthenon Temple behind her!
So this thing was the reason she couldn’t walk properly? It seemed to be granting her some kind of power…
Ye Xinxia did not want to be a burden. As long as she was trapped here, Mo Fan had no choice but to fight Hayla!
Fresh blood was smeared all across Mo Fan’s body. He fell from the black barrier like a fragile piece of paper.
He struggled to his feet and stared at the dark creature with the countless black insects circling it.
The Demon Element had granted Mo Fan great power, yet it was quite obvious that Hayla had surpassed the level of Ruler-level creatures. If Wen Tai had not left the creature with a serious injury, even the Demon Element and the Black Totem Snake were not enough to take the Death God of Greece on!
No wonder the Holy Judgment Court could do as they pleased; they would not have such power if it was not for their ability to sentence any person in the world to judgment!
Mo Fan turned around and looked at the Parthenon Temple, which the black insects were swarming towards.
Mo Fan was not a saint. Considering how the Parthenon Temple had treated Xinxia, he did not have any good impression of its people. As a matter of fact, he was actually elated when he saw the Dark Undying Worms devouring the Adjudicators and the Mages of Faith!
That being said, it would be better if their flesh would not make Hayla any stronger!
The Dark Undying Worms spread ever further. Hayla had ordered the Dark Undying Worms to head toward the barrier protecting the city after it had tasted the pleasant flesh of the humans.
The creature had sensed the strong presence of living humans inside the barrier. If it could devour them all, it would fully recover its strength. It would be able to easily defeat Ruler-level creatures with a single move!
It had a strong desire to recover its strength. The Dark Undying Worms had overpowered the Dark Contract. The creature greedily demanded more living people be given to it as an offering, just so it could regain its power!
Hayla was not able to kill Mo Fan for the time being. The creature was not in a rush, either. Its Dark Undying Worms covered the sky above the city. The black clouds moved rapidly toward the areas without any protection.
The black worms were extremely deadly to ordinary people. A swarm of them could devour hundreds of people in an instant!
The Magistrates and the Mages that came for the funeral on the sacred mountain were startled when they saw Hayla aiming for the people in the city.
In particular, the Magistrates and Holy Court Mages of the Holy Judgment Court were absolutely dumbfounded!
Hayla had never extended its claws beyond the Dark Execution Ground. Why would it suddenly go out of control? Or perhaps Hayla had always desired more death, just so it could grow stronger!
“You…you guys have Summoned a demon!” someone among the crowd screamed furiously.
“Stop the Dark Execution at once, or else the whole city is going to burn in ashes!” a Great Muse yelled.
Hayla had always been an evil existence; its very name represented death. The Holy Judgment Court had already crossed the line by performing the Dark Execution so close to the city, and now, the creature was planning to feast on the people on the sacred mountain and in the city…
They had to put a stop to the mess! They could not afford to let the demonized man and Hayla fight any further! The Citadel of Athens could not bear any more damage, as the barrier of the Dark Execution Ground was nowhere enough to restrain their power!
The Black Totem Snake made his way to the outside of the Dark Execution Ground and unleashed a poisonous mist.
The Dark Undying Worms died instantly after touching the poisonous mist, and fell from the sky.
The Dark Undying Worms had almost reached the areas with people. The armed forces of the Parthenon Temple were unable to stop them in time. However, the Black Totem Snake’s Poison Mist Domain came just in time, and stopped Hayla from obtaining more power!
The people of the Parthenon Temple were greatly relieved when they saw the Black Totem Snake’s poisonous mist killing the Dark Undying Worms.
The Black Totem Snake might look savage, but the kind-hearted guardian beast would not take innocent lives. He had actually gone easy on the people that had attacked him, which was the main reason why the people of the Parthenon Temple had managed to injure him. If the creature had not cared about their lives, the armed forces of the Parthenon Temple would have had to stay at least a kilometer away from the Black Totem Snake.
Hayla was infuriated when the Dark Undying Worms were wiped out. It went to the barrier and slammed its head on it wildly, as if it was trying to go out there and brawl with the Black Totem Snake.
The Black Totem Snake was not scared of the creature, either. He opened his mouth and roared at Hayla. The two enormous creatures faced one another in a standoff, allowing Mo Fan to catch his breath. His body was recovering rapidly, using the power of his Demon Element.
The Black Totem Snake could not enter the Dark Execution Ground, and Hayla was obviously unable to leave it. The Dark Undying Worms were the only thing that could leave the Dark Execution Ground!
