GDK 404 – I learned it from you
When the first gargoyle appeared, Florida already knew that the fiend had arrived. However, this battle had no turning back. Hence, Florida attacked without regard, attempting to first decrease the number of undead creatures as much as possible and forcefully charging to the Soul Destroyer mercenary band's base and fight them to the death.
Countless gargoyles surrounded Han Shuo, accompanying Han Shuo as he headed toward Florida. At this moment, Florida was frightened but the ire in his heart also couldn't be contained, unwaveringly staring at Han Shuo with a hostile gaze.
Florida had no reason not to hate him!
From the day Han Shuo arrived at the Valley of Sunshine, it seemed to have cemented Florida's ill fortune. Firstly, Han Shuo snatched away Phoebe who Florida fancied. Soon after, he had grouped together with Florida's arch-enemy Trunks. He also embarrassed Florida time and time again, even seriously injuring him in public.
Besides that, Han Shuo had even wrecked their meticulously planned ambush, violently killing his beloved grandfather, causing his relationship with the Church of Light to unprecedentedly worsen.
Before Han Shuo came to the Valley of Sunshine, everything within the Valley of Sunshine operated as Florida fancied. Drawing support from the Church of Light, Florida had complete confidence in replacing the Cairo mercenary band and become the true master of the Valley of Sunshine and control the enormous resources of the Valley of Sunshine.
Based on his plan, the Rainbow Sickle mercenary band would have the rights to control the Valley of Sunshine, while Butcher Gustav assisted in the shadows. He would be able to nibble away at the various powers within the Valley of Sunshine and possess everything in the Valley of Sunshine at that time.
Unfortunately, Han Shuo's appearance caused the situation to keep regressing, developing in a completely different trajectory from what he imagined. When Han Shuo left, he still left behind the cancerous Soul Destroyer mercenary band, nibbling at his hopes and expectations little by little.
"My greatest mistake is precisely that I didn't risk everything to kill you in the beginning!" Giving Han Shuo a death stare, Florida gnashed his teeth as he spoke, his voice filled with bitter resentment and hatred.
Han Shuo suddenly laughed, his laughter extremely bright and clear, as if his laughter became a huge winding dragon that soared into the skies. Not just the immediate area, even Laureton and the rest below were able to hear it clearly.
"Florida, I truly feel pity for you. You naively believed that with your grandfather's support, you would be able to act as you wished in the Valley of Sunshine. On one hand, you despicably seized the Rainbow Sickle mercenary band, and on another, you collaborated with the most merciless bandit in the shadows. You really think that you are above the law!
Heh, what a pity, what a pity. There's not only you who is smart and it's not your turn to call the shots. Your grandfather wasn't able to protect you your whole life. Now that that old bastard Ferguson is dead, you no longer have any cards to play. Ha, why am I saying so much nonsense to you? In any case, you will die soon!" Han Shuo smiled as he mocked Florida.
When he heard Han Shuo's mocking, Florida's expression became extremely downcast as if someone had stepped on him with a filthy shoe. He glared hatefully at the gradually approaching Han Shuo, taking a deep breath and said, "Today, only one of us will survive!"
"Of course it is you who will die!" Han Shuo shouted coldly, suddenly speeding up his steps toward Florida. He was like a streak of lightning that cut across the sky, charging towards Florida at great speed.
At the same time, the other thousands of gargoyles behind Han Shuo suddenly scattered into different troops, swarming like locusts toward the experts that were being attacked by the previous group of gargoyles.
The little skeleton who rode on the flying bone demon stood majestically on a flat portion of the bone demon's back. With his Purple Demon Eye sparkling, he sized up the battlefield. Pointing his three-meter long bone spear toward Adam Menlo, the wings of the bone demon flapped once, directly gliding toward Adam Menlo.
The harpies, frost eagles, pegasus, griffins, wyverns and various types of magical creatures had all been tamed by the House of Menlo at high costs. These flying magical beasts were each able to face a few gargoyles at once. Furthermore, they were either carrying a high ranked swordsman or a mage. In theory, they shouldn't be at much of a disadvantage.
Unfortunately, the reality wasn't as such. Although a magical creature and the expert riding it should be able to handle tens of gargoyles, when a swarm of gargoyles suddenly charged over, the dense aura was able to shake their confidence. The strong rotting stench was hard to bear, causing more trouble than they expected.
There were simply too many gargoyles. When tens of gargoyles attacked a magical creature together, even creatures like harpies and griffins were unable to withstand it. Furthermore, there were also Gilbert and hydra Lania, two tyrannical super rank magical creatures stirring up trouble. In just a few moments, many experts had either been killed by the gargoyles or the magical creature they rode had been beat to death, causing them to also fall into the endless abyss.
Within the layers of gargoyles, the little skeleton held its three-meter long bone spear. The little skeleton and the bone demon were both immune to ordinary spells. As it rode the bone demon, it was incomparably awe-inspiring. While flying toward Adam Menlo, a harpy brandished its sharp claw toward the little skeleton. Before it could even near the little skeleton, it was pierced through by the little skeleton's three-meter long bone spear.
After the petite little skeleton had pierced through the several meter long harpy, the powerful spear didn't pause and instead followed through to kill the fire mage as well. The little skeleton used the bone spear easily lift up the huge and heavy harpy. With a mysterious tremble of his finger bone, an enormous amount of death qi violently flowed through the bone spear into the harpy's body. The harpy suddenly exploded wildly above his head.
Chunks of the harpy's flesh mixed with rich death qi scattered like heavy rocks. Whoever was hit by the flesh of the harpy and was infected by even the tiniest amount of death qi would ice cold and uncomfortable from head to toe, causing their movements to become stiff.
As the little skeleton headed toward Adam Menlo, it had merely got rid of a harpy effortlessly along the way. Suddenly, everyone understood the terror of this undead creature. As they dealt with the countless gargoyles that covered the sky, they were still extremely well coordinated, opening a path for the little skeleton directly toward Adam Menlo.
As Adam Menlo closely watched dark dragon Gilbert, the super rank golden-winged roc under him was able to proficiently manipulate wind magic, sending out waves of wind blades in all directions without much movement from its wings. All the gargoyles that were attempting to approach Adam Menlo were killed one after another by the golden-winged roc's wind blades.
Facing a golden-winged roc which was a super rank magical creature of the highest level, the swarms of gargoyles were clearly unable to achieve much. Even with most of its feathers missing. The defensive ability of the golden-winged roc body was still much stronger than ordinary magical creatures.
It was exactly because of this that Han Shuo didn't waste many gargoyles in attacking Adam Menlo, merely asking Gilbert to impede him. Having evolved and becoming a rank two magical creature, Gilbert could be said to be evenly matched with the golden-winged roc that Han Shuo had previously severely injured.
All kinds of toxins and raging flames were shot out, mixing with Lania's reckless attacks. These created a large hindrance to Adam Menlo and the golden-winged roc, causing Adam Menlo to be pestered beyond his endurance.
However, the golden-winged roc was a super rank magical creature and Adam Menlo himself was a sky rider. With the two of them combined together, their strengths were amplified. Hence, Gilbert and Lania were unable to get an advantage.
Just as Gilbert was shouting arrogantly at Adam Menlo as he annoyed him, the little skeleton appeared on its bone demon. When the little skeleton reached the area, his Purple Demon Eye shone as it made peculiar gestures toward Gilbert.
The little skeleton first used the bone spear to point at Gilbert before pointing toward the others who were desperately resisting the gargoyles. Soon after, at Gilbert's amazement, the little skeleton then pointed his bone spear at Adam Menlo, before using his other hand to point toward himself.
After he finished gesturing, the little skeleton's Purple Demon Eye sparkled as he looked straight at Gilbert. Gilbert's lantern-like eyes stared foolishly at the little skeleton. While Lania was still obstructing Adam Menlo and the golden-winged roc, Gilbert finally asked cautiously, "Are you saying that you want me to attack the others and leave this fellow to you?"
The little skeleton's Purple Demon Eye brightened, casually nodding toward Gilbert, implying, "That's right. Get a move on, don't obstruct me anymore!"
Dark dragon Gilbert was extremely flabbergasted, attentively watching the little skeleton and the undead creature he rode, somewhat stunned for a moment.
"Dammit, you heartless creature, you still aren't coming to help me?" By the side, Lania was desperately fending off Adam Menlo's attacks. When she suddenly saw that Gilbert who was originally fighting side by side with her actually staring blankly at the side, she couldn't help but scold him hastily.
Dark dragon Gilbert quickly came to his senses, looking at the little skeleton once again, he saw the little skeleton raising the three-meter-long bone spear and arrogantly charged toward Adam Menlo. When the three-meter-long bone spear pointed at Adam Menlo, an incomparably huge amount of death qi rippled in all directions.
It was only at this moment that Gilbert truly felt that the seemingly small body of the little skeleton contained such a frightening mystical power! Gilbert suddenly understood that although he had evolved into a rank two magical creature, the little skeleton was actually more terrifying than him, so much so that the little skeleton possessed enough strength to kill Gilbert himself.
"Lania, let's go. We'll go and kill others rather than torment this old thing!" Having understood the little skeleton's message, Gilbert suddenly shouted loudly toward Lania.
"You idiot! Are you crazy? Didn't master instruct the two of us to impede this old thing. Are you seeking to be punished? Why aren't you coming over to help me!" As Lania spoke, her body gradually became hidden and soon after an enormous column of water charged toward Adam Menlo.
"There is someone who offered to deal with him, let's not stay and hinder him any longer, let's leave!" dark dragon Gilbert replied loudly, "You coquettish lady, hurry up and come with me!" Lania who had used the column of water to conceal her body gradually revealed herself. When she saw the little skeleton who was riding the flying bone demon over, Lania suddenly felt a feeling of being between laughter and tears rise within her heart. She then mocked Gilbert, saying, "Stupid dragon, this little skeleton is the volunteer you mentioned?"
Just as Lania finished her sentence, the little skeleton's Purple Demon Eye sudden lit up with glaring purple light. The three meter long bone spear suddenly transmitted a surge of death qi, causing a feeling of desolation to spread in all directions.
Lania naturally felt the tremendous aura and was incomparably surprised as she watched the little skeleton fly over. She immediately became silent, and with Gilbert's repeated urging, Lania no longer hesitated, her heart filled with countless doubts as she hurriedly avoided the approaching little skeleton and bone demon, flying to Gilbert's side.
"What, what is with this little skeleton? Why do I feel an extremely terrifying strength from him?" When Lania reached Gilbert's side, she could no longer suppress the puzzlement in her heart, frantically asking Gilbert.
