Chapter 2333: His Arrival Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Gu Xijiu closed her eyes. Her array formation was able to keep out the animals in the desert that traveled on land. Unfortunately, it was not suitable for keeping out hideous creatures that burrowed through the sand. Unless she could teleport, there was no way could survive its attack.
Gone were the days when these animals barely posed any threat to her. Under the current circumstances, even a child could easily kill her by stabbing her. What chance did she stand against the giant snake before her eyes?
Xie Zhi responded instinctively to the threatening situation. It gave the snake a growl and was ready to fight if needed. It was only a cub, nothing bigger than a two-month-old puppy. As compared to the giant snake, their sizes were of great disparity! It was like a ping pong ball next to a basketball.
The snake was not even bothered by the cub. All its attention was locked on Gu Xijiu. It moved its body a little backward and expanded its mouth to the widest, seemingly ready to fight.
Little Xie Zhi was desperate. With a bark, it raced forward and leaped onto the back of the snake. Swiftly, it took a bite and attacked its weakest point.
“Pang!” The moment it bit onto the snake, it immediately bounced back. The scales of the snake were as solid as a metal shield.
Irritated, the snake swept its body across the ground and forced the little cub far away, sending it into one of the corners in the array formation. Little Xie Zhi knew nothing of the structure of the array formation. In a blur, it found itself amid the boulders.
The snake did not give the cub another look. It raised its head and hissed. Then, it made a spring at Gu Xijiu.
“Swoosh!” A glimpse of a seven-colored ray flashed by like a streak of laser light. A spark flared in the air and was headed toward the mouth of the snake. The snake was caught off guard by the seven-colored ray. Its mouth was all tied up. At the same time, it was being pulled away forcibly by an unknown force. The snake fell right into the array formation and got lost into its defensive illusions.
It was aggrieved for losing the prey that it almost had. Before it could launch its fury at the unknown attacker, it was blinded by another streak of seven-colored light before getting hit head-on.
The giant snake was killed. Two different streaks of seven-colored rays took its life with its head completely smashed. It did not even see who the attacker was before it died. There was only a blurry figure of a man in red. That was all.
With her eyes closed, Gu Xijiu was already waiting to die when the interruption happened. Alarmed, she quickly opened her eyes and looked around.
She was able to see everything that happened in the array formation, as she was the one who created it. Little Xie Zhi was running around aimlessly, desperately trying to escape. On the other side, a red figure around the snake caught her attention.
The red figure was moving at great speed, so she did not quite see his face with her blurred vision. Her heart started to throb. She pursed her lips into a thin line as soon as the red-figure got right in front of her.
The sun was too bright, so Gu Xijiu could not even see his face. However, she already knew who he was. It was Di Fuyi, the Devil King. He was finally here.
