Liu Ru and Su Xiaoluo were stunned too. They had not noticed the man until he appeared just now. They could not tell if he had just arrived, or if he was already here for some time.
He was extremely quick. He suddenly showed himself when Zhang Xiaohou was about to be wrapped up by the armor. He pulled Zhang Xiaohou out of the demon’s throat with brute strength…
However, the black battle robe was quite greedy. After losing the chance to use Zhang Xiaohou as a sacrifice, it uttered a wild screech and lunged at the man instead.
The cape flew at the man’s head like a little demon. No matter how hard the man was trying to pull it off, it was stuck onto his scalp.
While the man was struggling with the cape, his legs, torso, and arms were covered by the battle robe. Each armor piece seemed to have its own consciousness. It was impossible to take them off once they were attached!
It felt like even the man’s soul was being occupied by the battle robe. The man that saved Zhang Xiaohou let out a scream of agony. His almost dug his fingers into his skin and tore himself in half!
The scream echoed through the hall, leaving the three young adults shivering.
Tears rolled down Zhang Xiaohou’s cheeks when he witnessed the scene. He was supposed to be the one enduring the pain, but the man had taken his spot instead!
His superior did not speak a single word, nor did he give him a single gaze. All Zhang Xiaohou could see was a determined back…
“Chief Military Instructor, Chief Military Instructor…” Zhang Xiaohou wanted to go up to the man to share his pain, yet Liu Ru would not allow him to do anything so stupid.
“Chief Military Instructor… is he Chief Military Instructor Zhan Kong, that you and Mo Fan always mentioned?” Liu Ru grabbed onto Zhang Xiaohou tightly.
The battle robe was scarier than they thought. It was entirely a black demon that would fiercely occupy the body of anyone that came into contact with it. If Zhang Xiaohou went up to it now, he would also turn into a meaningless sacrifice!
Zhang Xiaohou never expected Zhan Kong to be here, too. Even though he was full of doubts, he only felt like his heart was being shredded when he saw his Chief Military Instructor being tortured by the demon!
“Do…do you really think you’re that great!?
“Come… eat my soul… once you’ve eaten my soul, you’ll die too!
“You should have gone to Hell ages ago!”
Zhan Kong’s voice was incredibly weird, yet the words in his screams were obviously spoken with his own consciousness.
He was not talking to Zhang Xiaohou, Liu Ru or Su Xiaoluo. The words were directed at the battle robe that was devouring him.
Fang Gu had turned into a dried corpse, just a failed sacrifice. He had failed to gain anything from the battle robe. However, it felt like Zhan Kong had something that the battle robe was scared of, giving his soul a chance to struggle!
“If you want my body… show me some sincerity!” Zhan Kong to said himself, while trying his best to suppress something.
The battle robe was now attached to Zhan Kong’s skin, yet he totally ignored the pain. Amazingly, he tore one of the pieces off, which also ripped a layer of his own skin off, splattering blood everywhere.
The armor piece let out a ghastly screech. It tried to reattach itself to Zhan Kong, yet the man violently kicked the armor piece covered in fresh blood away, before he burst out laughing like a madman.
“Either you obey me completely, or we’ll die together! Eternal life? I’ll now send you to eternal doom!” Zhan Kong tore another armor piece off his leg.
Fresh blood poured out from the wound. Zhan Kong was totally willing to harm himself to threaten the battle robe, and so managed to control the situation. The demon that was draining his soul finally halted.
Su Xiaoluo, Zhang Xiaohou and Liu Ru were stunned. They had witnessed how Fang Gu had turned into a dried corpse. They assumed Zhan Kong, who had taken Zhang Xiaohou’s spot, would end up the same way. To their surprise, he managed to suppress the evil battle robe!
Even so, Liu Ru could clearly sense that the man no longer had the presence of a living human!
The Inner City…
A deep clock chime echoed in the Inner City. The ancient clock at the center of the city was shaking from to some overwhelming force.
As soon as the chime sounded, the people of the inner city somehow felt like it was a peaceful dawn as the old times.
The truth was, many people had seen a fiery figure flying toward them. It had torn a gap on the golden barrier and was flying straight at the clock tower.
It seemed to be the expert that was fighting the Mountain Zombie!
Half of Mo Fan’s body was stuck in the giant clock. He struggled out from the clock and fell to the platform of the tower, together with a bunch of debris.
Mo Fan felt like his bones were on the verge of shattering. The Mountain Zombie’s punch was simply too powerful. It had knocked Mo Fan flying for kilometers before slamming right into the clock tower at the center of the inner city!
Luckily, he had struck the giant clock that was imbued with magic. If he had landed among the crowd, the impact would have taken many innocent lives.
Mo Fan spat out the blood in his mouth. He turned around and saw the devoted deacon of the Black Vatican, Mu He.
Mu He was looking at him too. His eyes almost popped out from the sockets.
Is…is that Mo Fan?
The person fighting the Mountain Zombie is Mo Fan!
Demon Mo Fan was rather evil, too. When he saw Mu He hanging on the clock and staring at him in astonishment, his burning face immediately revealed a pair of fangs.
“What were you saying before, that I’m only playing an insignificant role in this festival?” Mo Fan said to Mu He as he was recovering from his wounds.
“What…what exactly are you?” Mu He was dumbfounded.
“Open your eyes and look carefully at how I’m going to ruin your festival!” Mo Fan yelled. His demonic eyes emitted a brilliant flicker.
Flames engulfed his body, while lightning dragons circled him. Two different types of power were surrounding his figure…
Obviously, two types of power were nowhere enough!
In the midst of the flames, a Soul Shadow slowly appeared. It was no longer a ferocious Wolf Shadow, but the silhouette of a glamorous Fire Demoness!
Instead of a demoness, the shadow resembled a goddess born from the flames of Creation. She was murmuring some ancient chants with her eyes closed, granting all her power to the person who had awakened her.
“This must be the appearance of little Flame Belle once she reaches the Adult Phase?” Qin Nan mumbled to himself.
Mo Fan had already sensed the incredible power and potential of a blessed creature like the Flame Belle just from the faint Soul Shadow.
The Fire Demoness Soul Shadow did not fight for Mo Fan, but it granted him the blessing of fire, making the flames engulfing him burn fiercer.
The flames rose into the air from the clock tower. The people in the inner city could see them clearly, let alone Mu He, who was only ten meters away.
Mu He’s eyes widened. He could not believe what he was seeing!
