Chapter 2388 Subconscious Fear
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
The bamboos between the boulders initially looked thin and harmless, but they were now massive trees with thick trunks.These big trees were quite dense, and they collectively covered up the sky.
The king of the Silver Ring Crocodiles was enormous, so anything it saw was usually as small as an ant in its eyes. However, this time was different. It was the one that felt like an ant while everything else was so huge! Even the humans it had chased earlier suddenly looked like giants!
It had fallen into an illusion! Whether it was a person or a beast that fell into the trap, there was always a subconscious fear for an opponent that was larger than itself. Hence, this was the same for the giant crocodile. After it rushed around trying to escape, it suddenly felt paralyzed in fear.
It had always been dominant when it fought; its sheer momentum when traveling was enough to cause its opponents to flee. It was also always surrounded by its followers, so it was never afraid of anything when it was in the poisonous swamp! However, it did not have its followers around this time; it was all alone. Furthermore, the illusion made it fearful of what it saw.
This crocodile was considered to be very powerful. If it fought seriously, even someone at the level of a Golden Immortal might not be able to beat it. However, the illusion made things different. Any human would already strike fear in its heart.
The purple-robed man gave it a bad headache. All the tricks he used on it made it felt extraordinarily painful, and it almost collapsed. Furthermore, the woman in the green dress was the most outrageous. Although her strength was weaker than the purple-robed man, the angles of her attacks were extremely excruciating. She solely picked on its weak points, and it was unable to block any of the attacks.
Yun Qingluo sat on a large rock while observing the battle. She saw that the Silver Ring Crocodile was almost defeated, and it was only a matter of time before it was killed. Her fists were clenched, and her eyes also flashed briefly. The situation seemed to be a little unexpected.
Guardian Jin stood in front of her and protected her the whole time. Naturally, he did not observe her facial expression as his attention was entirely on the battle in the field! He saw that his Demon King was extremely agile and quick. He continuously appeared in between the giant rocks, and every time he did, he would successfully hit the crocodile and injure it.
At the same time, Gu Xijiu stayed in the middle of the array. Whenever she noticed a weak point in the array, she would teleport to the position and efficiently fill the gap. She and Di Fuyi rushed back and forth in the battle; it was a dazzling sight watching them synchronize perfectly.
As for Mr. Zhu, he seemed relaxed. He twirled his goose-feather fan in his hand, and it caused changes in the bamboos. They either grew bigger, or their leaves would turn into sharp weapons that were aimed at the crocodile.
As for Hua Qianjun, he was on standby and ready to reposition any boulders that would fall out of place.Occasionally, he would even launch an attack on the crocodile when it was not prepared! Guardian Jin was so excited witnessing the scene. He really wanted to join them. Unfortunately, he did not understand this array, and he had to guard Yun Qingluo, so he could only watch in awe.
He was certainly very excited, but he did not dare to leave.
“Guardian Jin, you can go and help them.” Yun Qingluo said softly.
“I can’t; you are still seriously injured. Someone must protect you.”
“No problem, this place is very safe. The beast is not able to attack me here. Besides, I also have my own self-defense mechanisms.” Yun Qingluo took out a magical weapon from her storage space. It was a protective cover- once people hid in it, they were given some extra protection.
Guardian Jin was slightly convinced at that point. Yun Qingluo continued, “Go and help them, even if it is just to help them to move the big stones around.”
