Ji Hao didn’t flee too far away. Instead, he chose the most rapid flowing section of the river, where a branch river met the mainstream and had the most whirlpools to hide himself.
The dense watery mist released by the cloud bag connected firmly with the river, perfectly concealing Ji Hao.
From a great distance away, Ji Hao saw Gong Gong Wuyou roar in both anger and fear while a huge group of Gong Gong Family warriors swooshed up around him. Like moths rushing into the fire, those warriors pounced on the fiery giant who was wrapped in a raging fire.
However, this fiery giant had already reached the bottom grade of the Dao of nature of Pan Xi world, and his current power level had already surpassed the upper limit of Divine Magi by far. By simply flapping his hands, this fiery giant set those Gong Gong Family warriors ablaze one after another, then made them fall to the ground along with black smokes. Falling on the ground, these warriors were still burning by the fire that made them cry and struggle.
The burning, enormous hand of the fiery giant swooshed towards Gong Gong Wuyou, who screamed and hurriedly let out a fist-sized, blue bead.
Once the blue bead flew out, it transformed into a huge sphere of fierce cold mist, spreading swiftly out. Even though it was suppressed by this world, the blue bead still released a terrifyingly great power. Visibly, the tsunami-like blue cold mist swept across the whole area with a radius of a thousand miles within a single moment. Centering Gong Gong Wuyou, the whole area was already turned into a world of ice.
A bone-piercing wind blew across. No one knew what kind of treasure this blue bead was, as the cold power released from it was truly terrifying. Even the raging flame burning on the fiery giant’s body was instantly and thoroughly killed.
The fiery giant quivered in coldness, then yelled out excitedly, "What a nice treasure! Are you outer space monsters sending treasures to me? Shame, what a shame, why does it have a nature of water?"
A red pattern of Dao emerged from between the eyebrows of the fiery giant, and next, the killed fire on his body was boosted back up. The hundreds of meter thick layer of flame was a vivid red color and as dense as lava. As the fire roared and fluttered, different sized bubbles of lava would pop out, and when these bubbles exploded, huge streams of black smoke would puff up, seeming like erupting volcanoes.
The blue bead let out by Gong Gong Wuyou shook intensely while countless snow-flake-like patterns of Dao sparkled quickly on it.
This was one of the most powerful treasures given to Gong Gong Wuyou by the Water God Gong Gong to ensure his safety. Back in Pu Ban City, Gong Gong Wuyou could turn a whole area with a radius of a million miles into an ice land if he let this blue bead out, and the great ice power released from the bead would freeze this fiery giant directly into an ice statue.
Nevertheless, in Pan Xi world, this bead was suppressed heavily by the world, and no matter how hard Gong Gong Wuyou tried to activate it, he could only barely fend himself from the fire burning on the fiery giant’s body.
Ji Has clearly saw that the red, dense flame spread out wave by wave towards all directions while the blue waves of ice power drew back and back. Each time after the ice power drew back for five meters, Gong Gong Wuyou’s face would turn paler and his body would quiver.
Within the short span of a few breaths, the violent flame nearly approached Gong Gong Wuyou’s face while all of Gong Gong Family Warriors had already been turned into human-shaped torches, crying and struggling on the ground. Some relatively weaker Magus Kings were burned into coals.
Gong Gong Wuyou abruptly let out a huge stream of blood while his face turned so pale that it looked almost like translucent dark ice.
Followed by a cracking noise, countless cracks appeared on the blue bead let out by Gong Gong Wuyou. Meanwhile, Gong Gong Wuyou let out five streams of blood in a row, then sweat oozed out from his entire body in large streams; thin streams of blood had even gushed out of his skin.
"Outer space monsters should all die!" The fiery giant stared straight at Gong Gong Wuyou and continued, "Especially outer space monsters like you who love to play with water! You should definitely die first! I will kill you first, then I will go catch that bloody little thing!"
Gong Gong Wuyou looked at the fiery giant, seeming to cry but failing to shed any tear, and said, "You should go after him now. Otherwise, you won’t be able to catch him!"
The fiery giant laughed out loud, his resonant laughter spreading out for hundreds of miles far. He then said, "Won’t be able to catch him? That little thing can never run from my…Eh? Where is he? Where is his smell?"
In a panic, the fiery giant looked around nervously. The cloud bag, which was crafted by Xuan Du himself, wasn’t too powerful as a weapon, but the concealing power of the mist released from it was indeed incomparably great. Added was the fact that Ji Hao restrained his own power and was also hiding in the dense watery mist rising from the rapidly flowing river. Therefore, Ji Hao’s smell had been dispelled long ago, and the fiery giant couldn’t sense his existence anymore.
"Gone? Damn it! He’s gone! If you weren’t in the way, how could I have lost him?" The fiery giant growled ragingly, "Damn it! You know him? So it’s the same if I catch you instead!"
A pair of enormous, blazing hand reached over with a great heat, violently towards Gong Gong Wuyou.
Gong Gong Wuyou screamed again in both anger and fear as he yelled, "If you want to catch him, you just go catch him! Why did you attack me?! Did I do anything do you? You bastard, you asked for this yourself!"
Growling resonantly, Gong Gong Wuyou continued shouting, "Lord River Earl, please come quickly!"
Ji Has quivered in shock instantly. River Earl? Which River Earl?
In the Midland and the four wastelands, countless powerful beings possessed the title of River Earl. For example, River Earl Jade Dragon, who was killed by Ji Hao back in Yao Mountain City, was one of those River Earls, and all River Earls were under the command of the Gong Gong Family.
Nevertheless, if one merely mentioned the title ‘River Earl’, it could only represent exactly one single being, that was the ancient ‘River Earl’ who existed back when Pan Gu world was still ruled by the ancient heaven. This River Earl was also the oldest minister of Gong Gong family and was really close to Gong Gong, the Water God.
Even Wuzhi Qi, the unruly old beast, couldn’t compare with that River Earl in terms of power and qualification. That old River Earl was a genuine legend, and even Wuzhi Qi would have to lay low and be obedient in front of him.
Had that old River Earl also gotten involved in this life-and-death game?
"Bastard! This is cheating! Isn’t it?!" Ji Hao subconsciously murmured. Gong Gong Wuyou had actually taken the old Earl River as his ‘bodyguard’? This was cheating for sure!
Suddenly, a loud surfing sound came. Although it was only the sound, Ji Hao still suddenly saw a great river that seemed to be endless and boundless, roaringly flying across from around his body.
The flame on the fiery giant instantly dimmed down, being pressed to around three meters high. Meanwhile, the glowing red flame quickly turned dark-red, seeming ready to die anytime.
The loud and resonant surging sound could be heard endlessly. On the ground, the raging fire that had been burning those Gong Gong Family warriors was killed, and their injuries were quickly healed. Soon, they energetically flew back into the sky.
A man who was wearing a black robe, his whole body wrapped in coiling black mist, silently showed up before Gong Gong Wuyou. The face of this man was hazy, and no one could see it clearly.
Following the surfing sound, a hoarse voice suddenly came.
"Prince, please step back. Watch me kill this thing."
