The remaining members of the Black Vatican were unable to escape. Their only chance was to blend in with the tourists.
The problem was, as their superior had been taken down by Mo Fan, no matter what disguise they were wearing, they would not be able to trick the Enforcement Union anymore.
Following the Sudden-Death Poison Queen’s death, the poison did not strike again. The deceased that had mutated into monsters died immediately. The Enforcement Union started cleaning up the manor and the ranches under Nighthawk’s supervision, arresting the members of the Black Vatican hiding in corners around the place.
After Mo Fan handed Fang Shaoli over to Nighthawk, he returned to the orange building.
He pushed open the door to the Curse Pool and glanced at the woman soaking in the black, poisonous water.
“Have…have you come back to save me?” Wang Xuxu asked hopefully.
Mo Fan nodded. He scooped her out of the Curse Pool and used the clean water of the next pool to wash the filth off of her, before giving her a thick coat.
Her skin was festered beyond recognition. It was hard to tell if the Cursed Water would deal any side effects to her. Mo Fan could only hand her to Leng Qing, hoping that the Enforcement Union would be able to help this poor girl.
“Thank you, thank you so much!” said Wang Xuxu. She was granted a second chance all thanks to him, even though they were not really close to one another.
Rong Sheng and Guo Wenyi kept thanking Mo Fan, too. The two of them had no idea this place would be tied to the Black Vatican, and they were caught right in it. When they saw what the Black Vatican had done to Wang Xuxu, their hatred toward Zhao Pinlin grew even more, even though he was already dead!
As for the Golden Battle Hunters, their leader Ge Ming miraculously survived.
As his cultivation was relatively stronger, he was able to keep the poison at bay and held on until Mo Fan killed the Sudden-Death Poison Queen. It was a spot of luck amid the misfortunes of the Golden Battle Hunters, as their leader Ge Ming was their spiritual pillar.
However, they were almost entirely wiped out, considering the number of members they had lost in the operation. So many of their men had been sacrificed even though they were only going against a little branch of the Black Vatican. They really paid a great price for their reckless approach!
Ge Ming and Pan Jin were utterly grateful to Mo Fan and his team. The truth was, they had no idea there were other Hunters involved beforehand.
“So you’re from the reputable Clearsky Hunter Agency! Thanks for your help, young man. Otherwise, we were all going to die here. We can’t even bury our brothers and distribute the relief payment to their families…” he sighed. “You’re clearly the savior of the Golden Battle Hunters. If you need any help, just say the word,” Ge Ming told him sincerely after recovering from his injuries, patting Mo Fan on the shoulder.
“Be more cautious when you’re going against the Black Vatican. The strongest person of this branch here is only an Advanced Level Blue Deacon, yet she was able to cause so many deaths,” advised Mo Fan sagely.
The Golden Battle Hunters was indeed too careless with their approach, and were taken by surprise by the Black Vatican’s wild counterattack. It had almost ended in disaster, as the poison would have spread to other places.
Luckily, they were able to put an end to it, and arrest the culprit, Fang Shaoli!
Mo Fan decided to leave everything else to the Enforcement Union. They would handle the victims, the corpses, and the publicity that the incident would attract. Mo Fan was only curious how much money he would receive as a reward.
Mo Fan had undoubtedly wiped out a Black Vatican’s branch once again. Mo Fan did not really keep count of the disciples he had eliminated. However, the Gray Priests alone were already worth a few tens of millions. It was quite a handsome sum!
Lots of Gray Priests had died at in Mo Fan’s hands. Lingling and Leng Qing validated their identities, and they were all Gray Priests, each worth around nine million.
On top of that, Fang Shaoli was worth a whopping one hundred and twenty million. Even though the woman only had an average face, Mo Fan’s eyes glowed every time he saw her!
The Enforcement Union was pretty quick, too. Once they verified Fang Shaoli was a Blue Deacon, they immediately transferred the money into Mo Fan’s account.
As for the reward for defeating the Gray Priests and disciples, more accounting was needed to confirm the sum. Mo Fan would only receive the money in a month. It was roughly estimated to be a hundred and thirty million, according to Lingling.
Mo Fan gave the money to Mu Ningxue first, just so she could purchase a Galaxy Vein and achieve the Advanced Level. Otherwise, she would be left further behind by the people on the national team.
He did not mind taking his portion when the sum was settled in a month, since he had yet to decide how he was going to use it. It was not like he had no idea where to spend it; there were too many places he could spend it on!
First of all, Little Flame Belle was simply a bottomless hole. His beloved daughter had now reached the stage of eating Fire Soul Seeds. He could only afford to buy six tins of milk powder with a million. It was nowhere enough to guarantee Little Flame Belle could reach her next phase.
Mo Fan also needed to improve his Summoning Element’s Nebula to a Galaxy, so he could cast Advanced Summoning Spells.
The Shadow Element was in need of an upgrade, too. Mo Fan remembered his teacher mentioning that the Shadow Element would experience a huge change after reaching the Advanced Level!
The Space Element was in need of even more money. The reason why Mo Fan did not bother improving the Space Element to the Intermediate Level was because of how costly it would be. He actually needed thirty million just to improve the Space Element to the Intermediate Level!
“I should be getting around one hundred and thirty million. I can cover Little Flame Belle’s milk powder with the money I will earn from doing Hunter’s work. I will spend a hundred million on a Galaxy Vein to try and improve the Shadow Element to the Advanced Level, and the remaining thirty million on improving the Space Element to the Intermediate Level. Having an extra Space Spell will greatly boost my strength too!” Mo Fan said to himself.
Mu Ningxue went into seclusive cultivation. She seemed rather concerned about her attempt, as she actually went into seclusion a week longer than she needed to.
Meanwhile, Mo Fan had to wait until he received the money. He suddenly remembered that he had yet to register at the National Training Hall.
Perhaps the advisor at the Training Hall had even removed his name!
Mo Fan picked an afternoon and hurriedly made his way to the National Hall. He was quite familiar with Shanghai, so he did not have any trouble finding the place.
He strutted into the building with the floating sphere and saw a team of tanned foreigners heading for it, too.
“Is this the place, Sayed?” asked a woman with cat-like eyes.
“This is it! We must earn our reputation back today!” Sayed answered in veiled frustration.
