The Grand Finale (6)
asNaturally, Di Fuyi’s wizardry barrier began to lose its stability. Frankly, he already felt that the wizardry barrier was losing its rigidity even before the demon became furious with Fan Qianshi. Suddenly, he announced, “No! Things are not looking good! We have to get out now!”
Without wasting any time, he started to work on their escape plan.
Di Fuyi was well prepared, but he would still need at least an hour for them to find a way out. Luckily, he had a helpful assistant. Gu Xijiu was informed of the solution beforehand so she could play a part in their escape. Soon, they became fully occupied with their tasks.
While they were still working on the barrier, Di Fuyi suddenly said, “Xijiu, we have to be quick! The water is rising again!”
The rising level of the dark water indicated that the desert was, once again, expanding. More lives were inevitably lost in this tragic disaster.
They really had to be quick.
On the outside of the desert, there had been an unforeseen calamity.
The desert was contained for a while earlier, so the expansion stopped. Nevertheless, when they heard a loud screech from within the core of the desert, it went into an uncontrollable and frantic mode.
Like a confined beast that had just broken free, it became ten times more powerful than it was before. Ruthlessly, it started attacking people in different corners of the array formation.
They tried their very best to keep it contained but ended up being swept away by the aggressive storm. Many could not withstand the impact and got injured. Nonetheless, they continued to hold their positions, though it was difficult. This only lasted for an hour before they eventually gave up.
A deafening crash occurred in the air, amidst loud screaming from the people. It did not take long for the array formation to become completely broken apart, as all of them were sent across the air due to the sheer force from inside the desert. Apparently, the war from the inside went on with all its stresses and strains.
Even Bai Ze struggled to keep its balance. From what it could observe, the desert was expanding at an alarming rate again. Hastily, it gathered the people around to rejoin forces. They needed to reset the array formation as soon as possible; however, not everyone was present. At least a dozen of them were missing, including Long Siye and his master, Hua Yan. The mussel and Lu Wu were only here to be spectators at first, but they were also nowhere to be seen after the great impact.
The desert continued to extend as far as it could possibly reach, and, very soon, another city was unfortunately swallowed. People screamed for life while being helplessly engulfed by the unrelenting sand storm. A drop-dead silence then ensued, indicating no survivors.
Bai Ze could no longer stay calm. The whole situation was clearly out of control. At that rate, it would only take a day for the desert to engulf the entire continent, taking away tens of millions of innocent lives. It would be as good as the end of the world.
Furthermore, the disappearance of Gu Xijiu and Di Fuyi was also very alarming. They still had not emerged from the desert, and things appeared to be getting worse.
Within the desert, the demon already went crazy.
Her hair danced in the gusts of winter wind. Also, her nails suddenly grew to about a foot long. When her hands moved, streaks of colorful light could be seen glowing from her fingertips, thus forming a very strong visual contrast against the black, dusty background. Evidently, she had unleashed her tremendous rage.
Aghast with terror, Fan Qianshi took a few steps back, knowing that there was no way he could fight back. It was the end. She was no longer under his control.
Panicked, Fan Qianshi could no longer keep his composure. He understood the consequences very well. Now that he could no longer keep her under control, he would eventually become her puppet. All six worlds would perish as a result of her madness and would eventually cease to exist. It was not what he wanted.
The fight had been going on for so long, which was exhausting for him. He felt so weak and numb that he could no longer feel his limbs. Also, he did not get to extract the poison out of his body in time, so the barrier that protected his brain from being poisoned slowly lost its stability.
In the meantime, the demon continued to fight with great strength. Instead of getting tired, her power actually kept increasing.
When they first started their battle, his Kung Fu was slightly more powerful than hers. But as the battle progressed, the situation had taken a complete turn. His defeat was only a matter of time away.
