The bull was a top-notch Dark-Grade source beast.
The Raging Inferno Guardian was no stranger to source beasts. Thanks to his many years of experience crossing swords with the Jade Bone Bird, he was already very familiar with the different grades of source beasts.
The Primordial Diabolical Bull, who had never displayed its power, was actually a top-notch Dark-Grade source beast.
How was this possible?
The Raging Inferno Guardian had been unscrupulously thinking of all sorts of methods to get Luo Yunyang to switch positions with him so he could avoid the Jade Bone Bird, which was about to become a Dark-Grade beast. However, he had never expected that the harmless Primordial Diabolical Bull would actually be a top-notch Dark-Grade beast as well.
Just as victory had been in his hands, the pig he had been about to slaughter had turned into a tiger before his very eyes.
This particular beast was an extremely vicious tiger.
For a moment, the Raging Inferno Guardian even thought that he might die.
He couldn’t die, though. He knew very well what he was seeking. Even if source beasts occupied the Da Alliance, his cultivation base would still ensure his survival.
How could he die?
As he thought about this, the Raging Inferno Guardian immediately made a decision. He would flee! He would worry about the punishment of the Collective God Union later.
What was important now was that he flee.
Just as he was about to leave, Ba Xinjie rushed up to him and said loudly, “Sir, you are the only one capable of stalling the Primordial Diabolical Bull. We have asked for taboo weapons as a form of support, so we might still be able to drive the Primordial Diabolical Bull away.”
“The dimensional fracture hasn’t fully formed yet, so if we drive the Primordial Diabolical Bull away, it might shrink. Actually, it might even return to its original size!”
The Raging Inferno Guardian stared at the staunch Ba Xinjie as he chuckled. “You want me to hold off the Primordial Diabolical Bull?”
“Sir, I know that this is very dangerous, but we don’t have any other choice. Behind us is Jin’fu City, which is”
The Raging Inferno Guardian slapped Ba Xinjie’s face before he could finish speaking. “Goddamnit! Even a pair of nesting birds on the same tree would fly off separately in the face of a catastrophe! What else can I do here? These are dangerous times. Do you want daddy to brave through fire and water to hold off a source beast for you people? That would be too goddamned generous!”
After slapping the repulsive Ba Xinjie, the Raging Inferno Guardian soared into the air and disappeared frantically into the distance.
The Raging Inferno Guardian had fled!
Ba Xinjie got up with difficulty and looked on dumbstruck as the Raging Inferno Guardian disappeared.
Never in his wildest dreams had he imagined that such a prestigious god-grade powerhouse would actually flee without any regard for his prestige.
How could he flee?
He had received all sorts of offerings for so many years. How could he choose to flee at such a crucial time?
Besides, Jin’fu City was behind them. If they fled, then the residents of Jin’fu City would simply have no hope of escaping a swarm of countless dire beasts.
“What do we do?” a puerile young man asked in panic as he helped Ba Xinjie to his feet.
“Are you afraid of dying?” Ba Xinjie said calmly before gently pushing away the young man’s hand.
The young man hesitated for a bit before ultimately nodding his head. “I am!”
“Ha ha! You are very honest, kid. Actually, to tell you the truth, I am also afraid!” Ba Xinjie said gravely. “However, there’s no other way out! If we retreat any more, we will reach Jin’fu City! Every moment that we stall the Primordial Diabolical Bull we save countless lives. No matter how you see this, it seems worthwhile. Relay my orders and request for emergency assistance from Shen’du. Then follow me!”
Streams of flames shot towards the position of the Primordial Diabolical Bull, continuously taking down the dire beasts pouring through the crack made by the bull.
However, the fortress these jets of flames were shooting out from was turned into rubble after a battering from the shadow of the huge bull.
The body of the Primordial Diabolical Bull had thoroughly split open the dimensional fracture. However, the bull didn’t stay. It immediately left the void with a light hop and landed on solid ground.
A lively beastial cry left the mouth of the Primordial Diabolical Bull before countless dire beasts flew out of the huge crack and headed in the direction of Jin’fu City like a flowing waterfall sweeping everything in its wake.
“Run! Run! Run!”
Throngs of people crowded on the main street, which wasn’t wide enough. The crying, shouting and weeping sounds they made caused the street to seem like hell.
“Move quickly! The dire beasts are coming!”
“Escape to Jin’fu City. We will only survive by going to Jin’fu City! Hurry up!”
“It’s a peak Dark-Grade source beast! Everyone run away quickly!”
Amidst all that shouting, a huge eagle appeared in the sky and blotted out the sun. When it saw the fleeing humans, its eyes flashed with a bloodthirsty glint.
As the huge eagle rushed over, many people screamed and wailed. The crowd on the street tried to flee before it was turned into a wave of blood.
“Help! Someone save us”
“Mama! Where are you, mama?”
Huge dire beasts spilled out of the massive crack like an onrushing tide, scaring the masses
The sky was shaking, the earth was trembling and people were crying.
Meanwhile, Jin Zaitian was busy assembling all sorts of manpower and transferring resources in Shen’du. His words were laced with murderous intent as he spoke.
“Hold them off! I command you all to hold these dire beasts off, no matter the cost! One hour. You guys have to hold on for one hour. Don’t give me any excuses”
Although Jin Zaitian’s mouth was dry, he knew that he had to do this. He couldn’t afford to hesitate at such a crucial time.
“The Rising Dragon Army doesn’t have enough manpower. Let the Sky High Military support them. I don’t care if we have to sacrifice our lives. Let’s do it!”
Jin Zaitian eventually picked up the glass of water before him and took a sip. Meanwhile, his eyes landed on Zhuge Yi, who had been waiting beside him.
“How is it going? Can the Martial God help?”
Zhuge Yi shook his head. “The Martial God is currently in isolation. He can’t move out. As for the other ultimate powerhouses, they have all reported that they are protecting their own locations. Huge numbers of dire beasts and source beasts have gathered, so it is difficult for them to provide assistance.”
Jin Zaitian’s fingers seemed to freeze in mid air. He looked at Zhuge Yi, whom he trusted the most, as he said in a trembling voice, “Can’t the Martial Martial God come out of seclusion? If we aren’t able to seal that crack within 24 hours, then it will become permanent. If that happens, the 13 Eastern Cities will be doomed!”
Zhuge Yi’s voice was filled with grief as he said, “Out of all the ultimate powerhouses, Unrivalled Warrior Johann is under the least pressure. However he hasn’t answered our request.”
Jin Zaitian didn’t say anything. He just stared desolately at the screen as his eyes became redder.
