River Earl bravely stepped up, facing Ji Hao.
Ji Hao scornfully glanced at River Earl, then turned around and growled harshly to Yemo Sha, "Yemo Sha, what is the bet between Dishi Cha and Gong Gong about?"
Yemo Sha didn’t ponder too much. Instead, he answered quickly, "Within three months, if all human beings are killed out by us, Gong Gong will destroy the entire clan of you, Earl Yao Ji Hao, by himself. Your ancestral temple will be crushed, and your bloodline will perish."
Ji Hao laughed with an ice-cold voice while turning around, glaring at River Earl.
River Earl snorted coldly while a frosty air stream rose from his entire body and thin water streams clattered under his feet. "Why are you staring at me? Ignorant little kid, you have to know, my master would do what he promised only if all human beings are killed out within three months." said River Earl.
Ji Hao looked at River Earl expressionlessly while he asked word by word, "Indeed, kill all human beings within three months…Are these kinds of word games fun? Gong Gong Wuyou, and you, River Earl, are you human beings?"
Gong Gong Wuyou took two steps backward. Meanwhile, a group of Water God warriors rushed up and surrounded him firmly up.
"I don’t know what you are talking about." River Earl snorted and said blandly.
Ao Li and Feng Qinxin, who stood in the distance away and had been smilingly looking at Ji Hao and the others, glanced at each other. Their eyes sparkled simultaneously, as if they had both discovered something from each other’s face. Yet, both of them then turned away expressionlessly, looking in different directions.
Ji Hao had his spiritual power activated, with which, he grasped Ao Li and Feng Qinxin’s facial expressions. Instantly, his heart sank.
‘Hehe, hehe, hehe.’ Ji Hao sneered silently. No wonder Gong Gong Wuyou, Ao Li and Feng Qinxin, who had always been well-protected, all dared to join this life-and-death game. Even though this life-and-death game had nothing to do with them, and neither did the non-humankind require elites from the dragon-kind and phoenix-kind to take part in this game, but still, they had both stepped in on their own initiative.
They were all clearly aware of the fact that they wouldn’t encounter with any danger in this game.
No wonder Ao Li and Feng Qinxin had been dedicating themselves to finding helpers and intruding the Holy Land. They hadn’t even started any serious fights against the non-humankind so far. With unknown methods, the dragon-kind and phoenix-kind had actually made some kind of agreement with the non-humankind.
"The non-humankind monsters are going to attack. Those who are still willing to follow the lead of the alliance of human clans, stay inside. Those who came to seek benefits, please leave. Weapons don’t have eyes, and anything can happen on the battlefield."
Ji Hao’s voice had become especially cold, that seemed to even freeze anyone straight from the bones.
Man Man carefully walked to Ji Hao, gently dragged his sleeve with her little hands and said seriously, "I came to fight those monsters with you, Ji Hao. I didn’t know that they have been colluding with those monsters!"
Man Man now understood many things after all she had been through so much.
Ji Hao delightfully patted on Man Man’s head and responded in a serious tone, "Hm, Man Man, you are one of our family. But as for some others…hehe!"
Ji Hao sneered coldly once again. Gong Gong Wuyou looked at Ji Hao without any expression, then laughed teasingly. Ao Li and Feng Qinxin remained silent, looking far away, still as if nothing had happened at all.
Si Wen Ming, Huaxu Lie, Lie Mountain Kang and the other elite human beings all had their faces darkened, while glaring at Gong Gong Wuyou. "Prince Wuyou, just give us an explanation. What Ji Hao guessed, is that true?" asked Si Wen Ming coldly.
Gong Gong Wuyou carelessly waved his sleeve and said blandly, "I don’t know what you are talking about. What? Are you suspecting that we have been colluding with the non-humankind? How ridiculous. If you want to blame me for something, just come up with some less ridiculous accusations. Why should our Gong Gong Family collude with these non-humankind beings? We’re not there yet!"
Gong Sun Yuan looked at Gong Gong Wuyou in a rather complicated way. Before this, they were even allies. Gong Gong Family promised to support Gong Sun Yuan attain the throne of human emperor with all of his powers, and in return, the Gong Gong Family would replace the Zhu Rong Family and become the Great Libation of the humankind, controlling all ceremonies and managing the Magi Palace.
If what Ji Hao guessed was true, if the Gong Gong Family had really made some kind of agreement with the non-humankind, Gong Sun Yuan had to disengage with them as quickly as possible. As a man who couldn’t even bear to abandon the people who followed his lead just now, and was willing to risk his own life to protect those people, how could he be together with those who had two faces? The descendants of the You Xiong Family would never do such things.
Weirdly, the space upon the fence wall fell into a deathly silence. Si Wen Ming abruptly took out a stamper, slightly waved it in front of the others and said, "Prince Wuyou, lead all your warriors to encounter the enemies. If you disobey, you will be counted as betrayers of the humankind and will be punished. I, Si Wen Ming, order you to encounter the enemies, with the name of the human emperor."
Gong Gong Wuyou and River Earl were deeply confused and badly shocked upon hearing this. They glared at the stamper holding in Si Wen Ming’s hand in shock while River Earl shouted, "The secret seal of the human Emperor? Are you the special envoy of the human Emperor? Bastard! This is a fair competition, everyone can compete for the throne of the human emperor fairly. You, you, how can you execute the power of the human Emperor instead of Emperor Shun himself?"
"Emperor Shun wasn’t willing to see all elite human being die out in this place in a mess. Therefore, he gave me this secret seal. When over seventy percent of our people fall, I will take over the commanding power for the rest of us. If you don’t want to follow my orders, you can talk to Emperor Shun about it after the war ends. Now, I order you, all Gong Gong Family warriors, go encounter the enemies! Anyone refusing to do it will be counted as a betrayer of the humankind."
Gong Gong Wuyou and River Earl stared at Si Wen Ming with twisted faces.
The looks of Ao Li and Feng Qinxin, who stood in a long distance away, had become especially strange as well.
Ji Hao took a few steps back, emptied a large space on the fence wall and said smilingly, "Please, Prince Wuyou and Lord River Earl, just lead your people and encounter the enemies! If you can’t hold on anymore, we will surely come to help. We won’t intentionally let you suffer any loss."
Gong Gong Wuyou opened his mouth, seeming to say something, but River Earl threw him a sideway glance, making him choke all that he wanted to say
"Cold words are hurting." Said River Earl blandly, "Since Earl Yao, you said so, what are we waiting for? In this case, we shall just fight."
While sneering, River Earl gave a strangely cold glance at Ji Hao and continued, "Remember, remember this, Earl Yao, you slandered our Gong Gong Family like this. When we leave this world, and if you are still alive till then, our Gong Gong family will certainly make you explain this."
"We will certainly make you explain this." Gong Gong Wuyou sneered and added, as if he was a parrot mimicking his owners.
Ji Hao said nothing, only stepped back to the second fence wall with Si Wen Ming and the others.
Gong Gong Wuyou’s warriors surged up onto the first fence wall like a flood, standing in a straight line. Compared to Zhu Rong Tianming, who had lost most of his warriors and supporters, Gong Gong Wuyou hadn’t suffered any obvious losses.
Once Gong Gong Wuyou’s warriors formed battle formations on the fence wall, a shrill metal clashing noise came from down below. The army of battle puppets of the non-humankind had arrived.
