Chapter 35 - Invulnerable
Ji Hao felt as if an electric current had passed through his body; there were goosebumps over his entire body and the tiny hairs on his body were all standing up. He detected all sorts of emotions contained in the shouts of Ji Ying and Ji Lang; tension, shock, and even a slight trace of fear.
Ji Lang and Ji Yang held their head high and their weapons tight, while taking three steps forward and faced the two clansmen of the Jia Clan bravely. They might not be aware of the fear buried deep inside their own hearts, but Ji Hao certainly was.
“Uncle Ji Ying, what the hell is the Jia Clan?” Ji Hao looked at the two four-eyed men walking quickly towards him and shouted to Ji Ying.
“Withdraw! Hao! Back!” Ji Ying gripped his spear and growled. Streams of fire spurted out from his body, his body turning almost translucent in the raging fire. “They’re monsters from the Jia clan! Stay away from them!”
“Hehe…hehe…” The Jia Clan warriors curved their lips and chuckled in disdain.
Looking at the inhumane enemies, Ji Hao took a deep breath. The purple light spot which was condensed by his internal power appeared between his eyebrows and started rotating rapidly, continuously drawing the surrounding power of the nature into Ji Hao’s body.
Ji Hao’s body trembled a bit, after which he started reciting the [Nine Secret Words]. At that moment, Ji Hao’s silhouette became hazy and indistinct. Followed by a muffled thunder in the air, Ji Hao pointed his left hand towards the sky and his right hand towards the earth. His pupils were shining with a chilling cold light. At the same time, a chilling wind whooshed through the air.
The ground under the feet of the two Ji Clan warriors started moving like water. Tens of arm thick thorns of dirt thrust out from the ground. The tips of these thorns were shining with the same chilling cold light as that in Ji Hao’s eyes. Under the control of Ji Hao’s power, the hardness of these thorns were greater than that of steel.
However, these sharp and hard thorns shattered into dust against the armours of the Jia Clan warriors. The Jia Clan warriors stood still, but their armours were shining without even a trace left by those thorns. Their mocking laughter turned louder and their eyes turned colder.
“Ji!” Ji Hao snapped. All the plants in the vicinity to shake suddenly. Hundreds of towering trees withered and collapsed and large patches of grass scorched rapidly. Only a few plants near the two Jia Clan warriors were wrapped by a green light and started growing madly; their leaves and vines expanded over hundreds of times in the blink of an eye. Under influence of Ji Hao’s magic power, these leaves and vines became as hard as rebar and coiled around the bodies of the Jia Clan warriors like serpents.
Those huge vines continued coiling around the Jia Clan warriors and wrapped them into a large green cocoon, after which it started wriggling and wringing, making a gravelly raucous noise.
“Such a boring trick!” A cold and glib voice came from within the green cocoon. Just when the voice faded, the cocoon busted open due to a power at the inside; countless pieces of leaves and vines were blown away by the power of the impact. The two Jia Clan warriors calmly broke loose from the cocoon and continued walking in big steps.
“Hao! Step back!” Ji Lang growled. “These Jia Clan people are monsters! Only a Senior Magus can deal with them!”
Ji Hao didn’t listen to Ji Lang. He locked his fingers together and triggered the [Nine Secret Words] in order. The power of the [Nine Secret Words] allowed Ji Hao to connect his own internal power to the power of nature. The nature power around him started rotating like an invisible whirlpool. A small spark emerged from the air then started a great fire around Ji Hao. Nine, arm-thick and tens of feet long, fiery snakes darted out of the blazing fire and rushed towards the Jia Clan warriors, emanating great heat.
The fiery snakes hit right onto the chests of the Jia Clan warriors, but they didn’t even blink when it happened. They only threw a mocking glance at Ji Hao and kept walking. The nine fiery snakes exploded with a loud bang at the very next second, shedding sparks and smoke and fell with a great splashes of fire near their heavy armours, failing to leave even any trace on them.
Ji Hao attacked the Jia Clan warriors over three times with all of his best sorceries. The lethality of his attack was even greater than that of an elite Junior Warrior’s attack. However, the two Jia Clan warriors weren’t harmed even a little bit. Ji Hao couldn’t sense any magic power from the two Jia Clan warriors, which meant that they took all of attacks only with their strangely strong defensive capability.
Growls of a few Qing Yi Clan warriors came from behind Ji Hao. Tens of long arrows hurtled towards the Jia Clan warriors.
The Jia Clan warriors gave a scornful laugh, then closed their eyes. The Qing Yi Clan warriors were the best archers in the Southern Wasteland. The tens of arrows hit onto closed eyes of the Jia Clan warriors almost simultaneously, which gave Ji Hao a spurt of great joy. However, after less than one second, his heart sank heavily; he felt cold and hopeless like he was drowning in the Cold Stream in the middle of the valley.
All of the Qing Yi Clan warriors guarding the Coldbrook Valley were middle-level Junior Magi, even some elite Junior Magi. The arrows shot by them could easily puncture tens of towering trees over miles away. But just now, their arrows had clashed against the eyelids of the Jia Clan warriors!
The Jia Clan warriors blinked and shook off the dirt left by smashed arrows. After that, they took a few big steps forward, and walked up to Ji Ying and Ji Lang.
Ji Hao stared at the two Jia Clan warriors nervously. What kind of freaks were they? Even their eyelids were indestructible, like iron walls and had shattered the arrows of the best archers in the Southern Wasteland! Ji Hao thought.
Ji Ying darted out ahead of Ji Lang. He leapt up from the ground, held his spear high and pierced towards one of the Jia Clan warrior’s heart. At the same time, the spearhead spurted out a raging flame.
Ji Ying injected all of his power into hi spear, causing a great to be emitted from the spear. The earth started shaking intensely and the soil melted rapidly. Not long after, a thin layer of lava was covering the ground near Ji Ying and was spreading towards the surrounding areas.
The Jia Clan warrior who was facing Ji Ying held the bola in his left hand and took a step sideways then twisted his body at a weird angle, and dodged Ji Ying’s attack. The spearhead sliced through the air, an inch away from his face, but didn’t touch even a hair of his.
Ji Ying had missed his target. Before he had landed back on the ground and was able to adjust his posture, the Jia Clan warrior threw a punch at his throat instantaneously. Ji Ying let out a very muffled moan, lost his breath and showed the whites of his eyes.
After that, the Jia Clan warrior raised the bola and heavily hit against the back of Ji Ying’s head with it. Ji Ying shouted out in pain, fell hard on the ground, casing his body to twitch continuously.
“Ji Ying!” Ji Lang growled and jumped up, rushed towards the Jia Clan warrior who was standing in front of Ji Ying. The other Jia Clan warrior seemed to have already foreseen his plan; once Ji Ying moved his feet, he put a heavy shield, which had abruptly appeared from nowhere in front of his partner. Ji Lang hadn’t seen this coming, he bumped hard against the shield; his head broke instantly and blood spurted out.
Ji Hao’s pupils constricted to the size of pinpoint when he saw what happened.
The attacks of these two Jia Clan warriors were so clean and straight. It seemed like they had practiced this thousands of times.
Ji Ying and Ji Lang, two powerful young Senior Magi were each knocked down by a single attack. Ji Hao felt as if the Jia Clan Warrior weren’t even humans, they were more like two fighting machines!
