Creatures with lumpy green skin leapt out from the water and landed on the roofs occupied by the humans using their outstanding jumping ability. Their jagged paws were clashing with ear-splitting crackles.
Their eyes were staring at the humans scattered across the roofs, full of frenzied savagery.
Sea monsters were usually more intelligent than most demon creatures, especially those with high lineage.
For some reason, killing humans had become a glorious achievement for the sea monsters of the Pacific Ocean. Some would even leave markings on their scales to count the number of humans they had killed, like the medals and badges worn by a soldier or a general!
The previous Jagged-Paw Green Demons were only sent here as scouts, to learn how many humans the area had. Once the scouts were done with their job, the rest of the army immediately advanced, to wipe out the teams of Magicians!
Guan Yu also noticed that the captain of the Jagged-Paw Green Demons whose limbs and body had been frozen by Mu Ningxue among the sea monsters!
More elite sea monsters had shown up. The Magicians could pick them out from among the sea monsters based on their size and the color of their skin. These elite monsters were normally stronger than most Warrior-level creatures, since the species of Jagged-Paw Green Demons was infamous for its expertise in fighting!
“So many, how many are there!?”
“Nan Rongni will die from the poison if we have to wait until we kill every single one of them!” exclaimed Zhao Manyan worriedly.
He had the urge to change all his Elements and become a powerful Magician with destructive spells, just so he could eliminate the Jagged-Paw Green Demons as quickly as possible. However, all he could do right now was to stop the demon creatures from getting closer and defend against their attacks.
“Mu Ningxue is on her own. She might be in danger too. She hasn’t fully recovered!” said Jiang Shaoxu nervously.
Jiang Shaoxu had learned from her mistake. She quickly jumped to the roof where Zhao Manyan, Nanyu, and Nan Rongni were. As a Psychic Magician, she needed protection from a defensive Magician like Zhao Manyan the most, since she was the least capable of killing the sea monsters on the team!
“We can’t break out from the surround, either!” noticed Zhou Xu.
“Jiang Yu, is your Night Rakshasa able to escape the surround?” Ai Jiangtu was worried about Mu Ningxue since she was on her own. She had used the Ice Crystal Bow that was beyond her limits recently, so she must still be weak.
“Not a problem!” Jiang Yu nodded.
“Send your Night Rakshasa after Mu Ningxue, we must find that White Sobbing Demon!” said Ai Jiangtu sternly.
The team was in the most dangerous situation they had been in since they embarked on the journey to train themselves. Ai Jiangtu had already maximized the potential of his Curse Element. As an Advanced Magician, he had no trouble killing the Warrior-level creatures, but there were simply too many of them. If he left the team to search for Mu Ningxue, he was worried that the others would not hold on!
“Feifei, go find her, and protect her at all cost. Do you understand?” Jiang Yu immediately ordered his Contracted Beast.
The Night Rakshasa seemed unwilling, yet she still headed in the direction that Mu Ningxue had gone.
The Night Rakshasa was only a meter tall. Her petite figure resembled a slender girl around the age of ten. Her front limbs barely touched the ground as she moved, like a nimble cat sprinting in the shadows.
When she dashed forward at full speed, her slender figure turned into a black line of shadows weaving past the clumsy Jagged-Paw Green Demons. The creatures finally reacted after some time.
The captain of the Jagged-Paw Green Demons from before let out a weird shriek after it saw something trying to escape from their envelopment. It immediately sent its minions over to hunt the little creature down.
The cry immediately caught the attention of eight Jagged-Paw Green Demons. They were initially climbing along the walls and hiding in the corners. They showed themselves after being summoned by their captain, staring at the Night Rakshasa greedily!
“Meow!” The Night Rakshasa’s cry was filled with a hint of disdain. She ran to the edge of the building and jumped across to the other building… and a Jagged-Paw Green Demon suddenly jumped up after it. It was trying to cut the Night Rakshasa in half in mid-air!
The Night Rakshasa was incredibly agile. She evaded the attack in the air and kicked the eye of the Jagged-Paw Green Demon to launch herself higher into the air with a front flip…
Her claws reached ahead, and the spinning Night Rakshasa turned into a whirling razor, slicing across a Jagged-Paw Green Demon as she landed on the opposite building!
The Jagged-Paw Green Demon was cut in two. The whirling Night Rakshasa rapidly flew across the gap between the two halves of the body and proceeded on her way without turning her head.
She was just too quick. The rest of the Jagged-Paw Green Demons were immediately left behind.
It had all happened within a breath. The members of the team were startled after witnessing it.
-Isn’t Jiang Yu’s little cat a bit too strong? The Warrior-level Jagged-Paw Green Demons were tricked around like dumb donkeys! They simply have no chance of stopping her!-
“She will take care of Mu Ningxue. Let’s focus on the trouble in front of us,” Jiang Yu said to Ai Jiangtu.
“Mmm!” Ai Jiangtu summoned a Cursed Evil Spider. It spat out red spider silk to entrap three of the Jagged-Paw Green Demons, and slowly drained away the energy of their souls.
Jiang Yu no longer had his Contract Beast around, but he proceeded to swipe a lunar-white arc through the air to cast Dimensional Summoning.
His Summoned Beast was fairly strong too, but there was still a great difference in strength compared to his Night Rakshasa!
The East Maritime Fortress was covered in a mist, greatly reducing the visible range.
The water continued to rise. It had been a while since the East Maritime Fortress had experienced such a great tide and tough battle.
The air was full of water vapor. The outline of a slender figure was floating in the air. Her wet silver hair was sticking to her pale-white face.
“Nan Rongni, hang in there!”
Mu Ningxue searched aimlessly in the mist. She only knew the direction the White Sobbing Demon was moving in, but she had no idea where to start.
Only the White Sobbing Demon that injured Nan Rongni could save her life. The East Maritime Fortress was in total chaos, and the chance of finding the White Sobbing Demon was just too low.
However, despite the uncertainties, there was no way Mu Ningxue would watch Nan Rongni die like that.
She wouldn’t give up on finding the creature! There’s no way she would let the filthy, despicable sea monster take away Nan Rongni’s kind, sacred life!
