Versatile Mage - Chapter 352: The Terrified City, the Skyscraping Snake
It had its back against the restaurant that Mo Fan was at, and now it was turning around…
It had a gigantic face, even though the majority of it was flat.
Its two triangular-shaped eyes were glowing, like spotlights lighting a logo at the top of a skyscraper. Its flicker was not too bright, but it was eerily terrifying, as if it could penetrate deep into one’s heart!
Its head and neck were almost the same width. The neck was slightly bloated, like it was wearing a giant cowl. It was entirely black in color, but one could barely see the scales on its skin under the illumination of the neighboring tower.
As for the rest, Mo Fan did not dare to look any further.
It was staring right at him. As a matter of fact, it made more sense for it to be staring at the building instead of the people in the window due to its wide vision. However, Mo Fan somehow had a strong feeling that it was looking right at him!
The stare made him feel extremely tiny and petty!
It stood at the busiest district of the developed city like an emperor. Despite the countless people on the streets and the tall highrises nearby, it was just standing there… It felt like it had been there for thousands of years instead of just appearing a few moments ago.
In the air, a helicopter circled the black shadow and directed its spotlight at it. In the darkness, Mo Fan could finally get a clear look at its appearance.
Snake, it was a snake!
It had its body upright like a statue. If it did not turn its head around, most of the people would assume it to be a freshly constructed skyscraper.
It was extremely huge. Mo Fan was confident that a beast like it could bring utter destruction to the city just by moving around.
However, it did not move. It maintained its posture after turning its head around. The only clue that proved it was not a statue was the tongue poking out from its mouth!
“Heavens, what… what is that?” Someone in the restaurant finally realized the astonishing sight and burst out screaming.
“Snake, it’s a snake!”
“A snake, it’s really a snake. Help!”
The restaurant that was filled with a romantic atmosphere a moment ago burst into an uproar. Everyone’s eyes were filled with extreme terror, yet they felt so lowly that the Skyscraping Snake could not spare a glance for them.
The restaurant was filled with screams and cries. Even Magicians like Mo Fan could feel their hair standing on end, let alone the ordinary people who had never seen a demon beast before.
Even the Razortail Drake had not given Mo Fan such great soul-trembling fear.
Could anyone tell him what he was looking at?
He was currently in Hangzhou. The modern city was built up over thousands of years by human civilization, why would the Skyscraping Snake now right at its center come out of nowhere?!
“Xinxia, behind me!” Mo Fan bit his own tongue. Only that would help him to briefly overcome the fear that was filling his heart.
Standing behind the transparent window, Mo Fan did not flee for his life like the rest of the crowd. He clearly knew that with a human’s speed, it would be no different than just standing there waiting for their death facing the Skyscraping Snake.
As Mo Fan sensed the Skyscraping Snake slowly reaching its head in his direction, Mo Fan subconsciously dragged Xinxia, whose mind had gone blank, behind him.
The Skyscraping Snake was extending its body. Its face slowly leaned forward as if it had seen something interesting. It slowly approached the restaurant’s window. Its lantern-sized eyes were parallel to the restaurant located on the seventieth floor of the building!
A pair of human eyes, despite being filled with boundless terror, had a strong determination to live in them.
A pair of snake eyes, without any sign of anger or joy. It was rather impossible to tell what it was planning to do. Maybe it was just randomly casting its gaze at a spot, and somehow the pair just happened to be within its vision…
It might be a mindless act from the Skyscraping Snake, but it posed a threat that the man who was trying to protect the woman behind him had never felt before!
The dark clouds reflected the dazzling lights of the city. The closest layer to the clouds were the symbolic skyscrapers that stood like tall trees. They symbolized the modern and prosperous of the human race, but tonight, they were no longer the closest to the clouds. That was a legendary snake that was straightening its body!
The astonishing view served as a heavy slap to human civilization. The humiliation and tininess before the gigantic beast had fully toppled the understanding of humanity, who realized that they were only frogs living at the bottom of the well.
It was not moving, nor was it destroying anything, but it was already a great calamity to the place.
The crowd that looked like dense black dots from a great height ran in all directions. Vehicles had blocked all the crossroads. Many were rushing out from their cars and fleeing on foot…
A nightmare had just arrived, without any sign or any chance for humans to prepare themselves.
A few minutes later, a few people with wings on their backs appeared.
Magicians who were able to fly were highly respected among humans, as they were exceedingly powerful. However, they were like flies and mosquitoes circling around the Skyscraping Snake, not daring to move any closer.
The good news was, the towering snake had shifted its gaze, as if something else had attracted its attention.
It leaned sideways as its neck began to expand. It was as huge as a cloud.
Its eyes found a focus. They fixed onto a white-shirted man with long hair flying toward it from the south.
The man had long hair like a woman’s, perfectly straight long hair.
The man landed on the pointy tip of the skyscraper nearby. Below him was the swimming pool, where the girls from wealthy background had already fainted, resulting in a rather intimate view.
The long-haired man raised his head and stared into the eyes of the towering snake. Among the thousands of people nearby, his eyes, sharp like the eyes of eagles, were the only ones that were not filled with fear.
“Even though the seal on you was nothing, it doesn’t give you the right to stir such a scene on the streets!” the man yelled, as if he were talking to the Skyscraping Snake!
The Skyscraping Snake completely ignored the man. It slowly raised its head, staring at the closest dark clouds, and hissed…
Suddenly, a haze encapsulated the Skyscraping Snake’s body. The haze was faint at the start, only partially shrouding the snake’s astonishing size. It quickly became as dense as the dark clouds, fully hiding the Skyscraping Snake within.
