“Mo Fan, prepare to run!” Mu Bai yelled at Mo Fan when he was almost done Channeling his magic.
As soon as he finished the sentence, an icy flicker appeared in the sky. A heavy Icebound Coffin fell from the sky and landed directly upon the Horned Male Medusa!
The Horned Male Medusa was in mid-slither when the Icebound Coffin landed right in the middle of its body and flattened it with great force!
The Horned Male Medusa cried out in agony. It fiercely twisted its upper body, but the frost began to spread over it. Being crushed was one thing, but being frozen was another! Once the Icebound Coffin suppressed its target, the spell’s powerful frost would spread rapidly across the target’s body. For a target with a long body, the Icebound Coffin would simply modify its shape accordingly to seal the target in ice!
The Horned Male Medusa was unable to break free, and the ice spread swiftly across its body. If its head was frozen in the ice, it would die to the frost very quickly!
“Well done!” Mo Fan was impressed by Mu Bai’s Ice Magic. He had managed to freeze the Commander-level Horned Male Medusa into a huge popsicle. He could not wait to see how the rest of the blind male Medusae were going to surround him now!
Mo Fan activated the Dark Noble Mantle and went invisible. Even the shadow he left behind when he cast Fleeing Shadow was extremely faint.
The Dark Noble Mantle had the ability to conceal its wearer’s presence, just like the Dark Material: Fiendish Night, which could even trick the demon creatures and lure them away. The male Medusae thought they were about to present a delicacy to the female Medusa. They were already imagining how they could rub against the female Medusa’s body as they pleased, but the little dessert suddenly disappeared in the blink of an eye. The male Medusae were so mad that they flipped in the air and slammed their bodies into the ground!
The proud female Medusa was enraged too. It opened its mouth and screamed at the male Medusae, as if she was complaining about how useless they were. The male Medusae immediately scattered and ran away. They were well aware that the female Medusa would swallow them alive whenever she was not served with delicious food. A single male Medusa was just enough to fill her stomach!
“Quick, we have to go now!” Mo Fan regrouped with Mu Bai and ran straight for the ravine.
Mu Bai had killed all the Lesser Medusae nearby to clear a path. He looked at Mo Fan and saw a few injuries caused by the Medusae’s poisonous fangs. He blurted out, “You’re poisoned. It’s going to paralyze you!”
“It won’t, poison is the last thing I’m afraid of. Let’s talk later, the female Medusa is coming!” Mo Fan replied.
Mo Fan had guessed right. The female Medusa was infuriated when the male Medusae failed to catch him. It knocked its useless underlings aside and decided it would take matters into its own hands.
The female Medusa had the ability to dive into the ground, like a sea serpent with the sand as its territory. It was able to dive and move freely under the ground!
“Quick, it will catch up to us fast!” Mo Fan said.
Mo Fan had fought some Red Medusae during the battle against the Great Pyramid of Giza. They were extremely quick when moving underground. He had seen them diving into the ground a kilometer away many times, yet they would suddenly spring up from the ground under his feet in just a few seconds!
It was one of the Red Medusae’s abilities. Only Medusae that had turned completely red would have the ability. Therefore, Mo Fan subconsciously felt the ground below his feet was unsafe as soon as he saw the female Medusa diving into the ground!
“Old Zhao, Old Zhao, cast your defensive spells on us, quick!” Mo Fan yelled at Zhao Manyan. He could sense the female Medusa was very close to them!
“Aren’t you guys safe right now!?” Zhao Manyan asked in confusion.
“Enough talking, hurry up and cast your spells!” Mo Fan grunted.
Zhao Manyan was an Earth Mage. He quickly felt an unusual force approaching rapidly through the ground.
“Baxia’s Seal: Plummeting Rays: Light Scale Armor!”
Zhao Manyan was pretty quick at casting his spells. Dots of light poured down like raindrops onto Mo Fan and Mu Bai, forming glittering scaled armor made of light on them!
Even though Plummeting Rays was meant to be an offensive spell, the armor of light that Zhao Manyan modified the spell into had an outstanding defense. It was possible to stack the light, too, so even if the light armor on Mo Fan and Mu Bai looked thin, it was made up of thousands of light rays!
“Are you stupid? It can swallow us whole, this isn’t going to work!” Mo Fan cursed.
“It’s below us!” Mu Bai’s face turned pale. The Medusa was quicker than he had imagined!
“Blink!” Mo Fan did not have the time to scold Zhao Manyan. He quickly constructed a silver Star Constellation.
As soon as his sixth Star Pattern was constructed, the ground began to shake. A pitch-black tunnel opened up like a bottomless chasm, giving Mo Fan no time to finish the last Star Pattern!
A pleasant voice arose from around three hundred meters away. Heidi’s ash-brown hair drifted in the wind, and her clothes flapped loudly too. A strong energy of the Space Element burst out between her brows.
The Will energy did not have any trajectory, nor did it leave any trace as it crossed three hundred meters, but it struck the back of the female Medusa’s head just as it was about to swallow Mo Fan and Mu Bai whole. The massive force knocked the creature’s head to the ground…
The rest of the female Medusa’s body was still underground as its head and neck were slammed heavily down onto the sand dune after being knocked back by the Will Cannon. Mo Fan and Mu Bai barely escaped death. They stared at the indent on the back of the Red Medusa’s head with blank faces for a long breath!
“That’s insane!” Zhao Manyan turned around and raised his thumb at the lofty Heidi.
On the other hand, Mo Fan and Mu Bai were running as fast as they could as soon as they recovered. They did not dare their heads around!
As they thought, the female Medusa whose head now had a hole in it was not dead yet. It pulled its head out of the sand and slowly moved toward them.
The female Medusa did not chase after them. Its eyes were like spotlights as they glared at Mo Fan, Mu Bai, and Heidi, as if it were trying to imprint their looks into its mind!
Eyes of Vengeance!
For some reason, Mo Fan, Mu Bai, and Heidi were able to see the female Medusa’s eyes staring at them even though they did not turn around. It felt like the world behind them had suddenly turned into a pitch-black icy abyss of death. Their only chance of survival was the narrow path leading them toward a cliff ahead. As they kept running, the narrow cliff would eventually lead them away from the darkness inside the vengeful female Medusa’s stomach!
