“Do you seriously think I can’t possibly kill you all?” Mo Fan stomped a Sea Monkey Monster’s head and glared at the rest of the creatures.
Mo Fan was just about to kill the Sea Monkey monster under his foot when the group of a few hundred Sea Monkey monsters in his surroundings cried out. They stopped throwing the disgusting filth at Mo Fan and revealed their flickering claws!
“These little imps are quite united, Mo Fan, we should take cover,” said Zhao Manyan when he saw that the situation was unfavorable.
“I’ll just kill every single one of them. Was I ever scared before?” Mo Fan was determined to kill.
“The Scarlet Soaring Demons are almost here…”
“Oh, guess I’ll spare its life for now…”
Mo Fan and Zhao Manyan did not dare to waste too much time on the Sea Monkey monsters. They immediately ran in a different direction.
It was the direction they were supposed to regroup with the others. The truth was, they already felt the icy breeze circling the island, and the grass and plants were covered in frost.
The water of a puddle just happened to freeze when they stepped onto it. It was a sign that Mu Ningxue was already channeling her incredible freezing magic. The water between the islands would soon be turned into ice.
“Mo Fan, did I imagine it?” asked Zhao Manyan when he saw that the Scarlet Soaring Demons were falling behind.
“I’m afraid not, Mu Ningxue’s Ice Element is quite unique! I suppose it does have such a huge coverage area.” Mo Fan thought Zhao Manyan was referring to the water freezing.
As a matter of fact, they were quite a distance away from Mu Ningxue and the others. It was indeed crazy that the energy of her Ice Element could reach them.
“What do you think I’m referring to?! You were using the same magic as Ai Jiangtu to catch the Sea Monkey Monster!” said Zhao Manyan.
Zhao Manyan thought he had seen it wrong. He knew how many Elements Mo Fan always had, including the Shadow Element that Mo Fan always kept as a secret…
“Yeah, it’s the Space Element,” said Mo Fan.
“What do you mean it’s Space Element?” said Zhao Manyan.
“What do you mean ‘what do you mean’?”
“Ai Jiangtu was voted the captain of the team unanimously because of his Space Element. Didn’t you see how cool he was when he blinked and instantly killed the creature? His Telekinesis can easily overwhelm his enemies, and his Blink can easily outmaneuver any movement spell. My father once said to me that if I manage to Awaken the Space Element when I reached the Advanced Level, he will give me half of his possessions. Do you understand how many figures half of his possessions equivalent to… the way you responded just then was like ‘yeah, it’s Space Element, what’s a big deal about it?’, do you know what I f**king mean now?” Zhao Manyan was on the verge of going crazy. He immediately uttered the words like a machine gun. He even had the urge to simply scream in Mo Fan’s ear!
Mo Fan let out a hollow laugh when he saw Zhao Manyan had turned into a Spartan.
Fine, he admitted that he was acting like a pretentious prick!
“Alright, I now officially introduce you… the Element that I’ve Awakened after becoming an Advanced Magician, the coolest Element ever, the Space Element! However, you know I like to act low-key, so can you please keep it a secret… by the way, is your father interested in adopting a son?” said Mo Fan.
Zhao Manyan’s face fell dark. He had never seen such a shameless person before!
“Since when did you level up to the Advanced Level… tell me later, they are getting closer. Allow me to give them a Rolling Wave!” said Zhao Manyan.
Zhao Manyan purposely ran closer to the water. He immediately took control of the seawater, which combined into a surging tide over twenty meters tall…
The tide rolled forward, snapping the trees covering the island in half. The broken trunks and branches combined with the tide, which continued to roll toward the Scarlet Soaring Demons.
Zhao Manyan cast the Rolling Wave quite adeptly. Since he was right beside the sea, his Rolling Wave’s strength had doubled, since he did not need to prepare a supply of water.
Zhao Manyan was quite satisfied when he saw the Rolling Wave charging at the Scarlet Soaring Demons like rolling doom. His strength was stronger when he stayed close to any body of water.
“Say… have you forgotten what my big wife mentioned, that these Scarlet Soaring Demons are experts at controlling water too?” Mo Fan asked softly.
The pleasant grin that Zhao Manyan was wearing immediately vanished. He glanced at the wave and realized that it was halted in its tracks!
-The wave stopped rolling? That’s some insane control!-
Taking a closer look, Zhao Manyan discovered that the Scarlet Soaring Demon’s eyes had turned ocean blue. The blue glow their eyes emitted had stopped the Rolling Wave.
Slowly, the Rolling Wave began to flow in the opposite direction.
Zhao Manyan did not care if the wave was rolling in the opposite direction. The eyes of the Scarlet Soaring Demons unleashed a blinding glow, and the wave was now charging toward them like a stampede of angry beasts!
The wave was over thirty meters tall under the Scarlet Soaring Demons’ control. The two young men saw an enormous ocean-blue curtain coming in their direction when they turned around!
“I ranked up to the Advanced Level when I was still in the Ancient Capital…”
“Advanced my ass, lend me a hand, my magic boots have stopped working!” screamed Zhao Manyan, not in the mood to discuss it.
“Why did we even put ourselves in such a mess when neither of us has a movement Spell?”
“Brother, I’m sorry, please use whatever you have to get us out of here, the wave is catching up!”
Mo Fan had no clue what to do. He could at most escape with the Fleeing Shadow.
The problem was the main difference that Fleeing Shadow had compared to other movement Spells: the fact that it could not be used wherever.
He could move freely to places with shadows, yet without shadows, the Spell was worse than running on his feet!
“Telekinesis, use Telekinesis to split the wave, you have the Space Element!” blurted out Zhao Manyan.
“I’ve just learned Telekinesis, there’s a chance that the Star Orbits will break still during the channeling. I can at most grab a monkey. As for anything heavier or forming a wall with my mind… I have no clue how to do that,” answered Mo Fan.
Mo Fan had indeed awakened the Space Element. However, it was also extremely difficult to master the powerful Space Element!
Not only did it require attention to connect the Star Orbits, it was also necessary for the Magician to use his will to lock onto the target. It was easier to use it on unmoving or light objects. However, a giant wave that was over thirty meters tall and rolling rapidly would simply shatter Mo Fan’s weak mental power!
“You’re an Advanced Magician, just do something! Holy crap, the wave is right above us!” screamed Zhao Manyan like a sissy.
