Chapter 34 - Four Eyes

“Break!” Facing the poor savage warrior who had been thrown at him as a human cannonball, Ji Hao dropped the axes, locked his fingers together then silently cast a spell; at the same time, he thrust his hands forwards, with his palms facing the savage warrior who was about to hit him.

The spell and hand gesture cast by Ji Hao made a connection with the vast nature power, which had now gathered into an invisible wall, shielding Ji Hao behind it. The poor human cannonball warrior exploded into a red cloud of mist accompanied by a loud bang, once he hit against the invisible nature-powered wall.

The air shock waves even sent Ji Hao flying backwards.

Mr Crow didn’t take any action. He gripped Ji Hao’s shoulder and gazed at the jungle behind the savage Senior Magus with his red and beady eyes, without even taking a glance at the savage Senior Magus.

“Juicy little kid...You smell so good...Must be tasty!” The savage Senior Magus roared and took a big step towards Ji Hao. He was nearly a hundred feet away from Ji Hao; however, with a single step, he was now standing right in front of Ji Hao.

“Go away! You disgusting fat!” The horrible smell of the savage Senior Magus almost made Ji Hao throw up. He overlapped his hands with a frown and quickly triggered his internal power. Soon, all of his internal power had condensed into a thumb-sized fiery lightning ball on top of his palm.

The fiery lightning ball then swelled into the size of a human head. Followed by an earth shaking thunder, a ten feet long lightning darted out of the fiery lightning ball and struck right onto the huge fat belly of the savage Senior Magus.

The lightning instantly burned out the dense black hair on the belly of the savage Senior Magus and his dirty, oily skin laid bare. Countless sparks of lightning wrapped his body and made loud crackling noises. Some of the lightning sparks struck on the ground and left hundreds of fist-sized holes.

The savage Senior Magus held his own stomach with trembling hands and staggered a few steps back. Although Ji Hao would never be able hurt the savage Senior Magus with his own physical strength, he had triggered the [Nine Secret Word] and borrowed power from the nature, which temporarily yet largely improved his power and strength. Even so, he still failed to cause any harm to the body of the savage Senior Magus. But he had successfully forced the savage Senior Magus back.

“Little bastard! I’m going to eat your brain!” The savage Senior Magus let out a roar and stamped down hard on the ground, causing an intense ground shake, which nearly made Ji Hao fall.

Ji Hao retreated rapidly.

“Savage! This is our Fire Crow Clan’s territory! Are you trying to get yourself killed?” Ji Ying flew towards Ji Hao with a spear held in his hand. His body was wrapped by a fire stream, which made him look like a fiery shooting star. He then landed in front of Ji Hao and firmly shielded him behind himself.

The spear made of mulberry wood was sparking and the obsidian spearhead was spurting flame flakes. Ji Ying then lunged his spear at the chest of the savage Senior Magus for hundreds of times, in the blink of an eye.

However, Ji Ying’s attacks seemed to be hardly hurting the savage Senior Magus. The savage Senior Magus stood firmly on the ground and put his palms together; a mace[1] tattoo on his right palm lit up, and then a mace appeared in his hand.

Ji Ying only had two awakened Magus Acupoints, while the savage Senior Magus had three of them. Judging from their physical strengths, Ji Ying was not the rival of the savage Senior Magus at all. The mace and Ji Ying’s spear struck against each other; the shock impact pushed Ji Ying backwards and made him fall hard on the ground. A small part of Ji Ying’s leather armour broke into pieces by a slight touch of the mace.

Along with a sharp wind, Ji Lang, who was guarding the back of the valley flew up to Ji Ying. Similar to Ji Ying, his body was wrapped by a fire stream as well. He flashed across the air and switched position with Ji Ying, then leaped up and jammed his knees hard onto the face of the savage Senior Magus.

The face of the savage Senior Magus was smashed instantly. Blood spurted out from out his eyes and ears. He howled desperately, threw his mace away, turned around fled backwards with his face buried in his hands.

At this time, Ji Ying was already standing back up. He held his spear tight and darted towards the savage Senior Magus at a lightning speed. At the next second, the spear went through the chest of the savage Senior Magus and punctured his heart. The savage Senior Magus screamed out, twitched a few times then fell onto the ground.

Thousands of savage warriors rushed out of the woods. However, all of them froze when they saw the savage Senior Magus lying on the ground and covered with blood. They gazed stunned at the savage Senior Magus, the most powerful warrior within their tribe. Their best warrior had been beaten up, which had frightened them badly. They didn’t know what to do next.

The savages were the robbers living in the jungle of the Southern Wasteland. They didn’t have a homeland, they didn’t know how to plant or raise animals. Neither did they have any idea about Maguspriest or elder Magi. They would eat every old or weak member of their own tribes. Just like wild animals, they moved around the Southern Wasteland jungle, robbed every clan they met and ate whatever they could find, including people.

The savage Senior Magus was the leader of this savage tribe, and was also the most powerful warrior among them. The rest of the savage warriors started yelling and screaming when they realized that their leader had already been knocked down.

Inside the dense jungle a tall figure in black, was standing in the shadow of a tree and murmured dissatisfied: “Told you. These trashes are useless. They’re even more stupid than animals! We have to do it ourselves if we want the prize.”

The tall figure then walked out of the shadow and said: “Let’s make it quick. The two Senior Magi just had their Magus Acupoints awakened, they’re not bad. Besides, they’re tall and pretty, those old ladies gonna like them. They’ll be worth a fortune!”

Another tall future walked out as well and said: “Let’s do it together then. Catch them alive as quick as possible. And that little guy, he can cast a spell at such a young age...more importantly...look at that delicate face, someone’s gonna pay lots for that.”

Ji Hao picked up the axe which was thrown on the ground by himself earlier and chopped the neck of the savage Senior Magus. He used all of his strength, chopped the neck of the savage Senior Magus hard for nearly a hundred times then finally beheaded him.

The body of the savage Senior Magus was still twitching intensely after that. A while later, a huge stream of blood spurted out from his broken neck and the twitching stopped.

“Such a strong life force! And he was a Senior Magus with only three awakened Magus Acupoints!” Ji Hao exclaimed silently.

Then Ji Hao heard these heavy footsteps coming from the jungle. He suddenly sensed a murderous vibe.

Ji Hao then raised his head and saw two men were walking out of the jungle. Both of them were over three meters tall and wearing full metal armours. Except their faces, all of their body parts were well protected by the exquisitely crafted armours, including fingers.

Their faces were in an odd bronze colour. One of them was holding a bola[2] and the other one was holding a heavy sword.

Ji Hao stared at the faces of the two men in shock —— Both of them had an additional pair of eyes located above their eyebrows. They were four-eyed people!

“Fight! Fight with your full strength! Damn! It’s the Jia Clan warriors!” Shouted Ji Ying and Ji Lang simultaneously.
