The Evil Flying Toad
“In that case, let’s go now.”
After speaking, Jiang Chen turned and flew towards the jungle with Big Yellow and Wu Ningzhu on his side. Wherever they went, the three of them were always together as one. They would never separate unless they had no choice. Without hesitation, Yang Bufan and Dong Fei were at Jiang Chen’s heels, leaving Liang Qiao and the other two slightly frowning at the gloomy forest, looking somewhat hesitant.
Yang Bufan ignored them. Although they were his subordinates, just like what he had said, anyone was free to pursue their opportunity in this Golden Horizon. Yang Bufan would never force them if they were unwilling to follow them.
“What shall we do?” Liang Qiao looked over at the other two people.
“What else can we do? Of course, we have to follow them. There are so many dangerous places here. But since we’re already here, let’s not be afraid anymore. Could it be that you want to live a peaceful life in this place for a month and obtain the treasures and benefits easily like picking up trash on the streets? Continue dreaming then.”
“That’s right. I believe in Jiang Chen. He isn’t a reckless man. It’s safe to follow him. Furthermore, we are now members of King Fan Prefecture, King Fan’s subordinates. Even King Fan has gone over there. What are we hesitating for?”
The other two geniuses made their decision and flew over.
Seeing the fading sight of the group, Liang Qiao revealed a trace of a strange look followed by a curious smile before flying over to join them.
There were a hundred miles from where they were to the forest. This hundred miles of distance wasn’t considered anything to a powerful half-step Immortal Emperor as they could reach their destination in a matter of a few blinks. In a just a few breaths of time, the eight of them arrived at the border region of the forest.
One had to say that the plants in the forest was luxuriant. There were bushes all over the place and towering trees that had countless growth rings.
“This is an ancient tree that has existed for at least a few thousand years and will soon develop spiritual intelligence. Once its spiritual intelligence is formed, it will become a mighty tree demon,” Big Yellow said.
“The Golden Horizon has existed for too long, which has given birth to all kinds of creatures. Don’t be surprised if you see anything strange here. Even a big tree can turn into a moving creature. This forest isn’t simple. We have to be more careful,” Yang Bufan added.
“Big Yellow, can you sense where the location of the treasure is?”
Jiang Chen looked over at Big Yellow. In this place, everything would have to depend on Big Yellow. They would need to rely on Big Yellow’s perception so that they could get closer to the treasure.
“I naturally can sense it. Let’s go into the forest first.” Big Yellow said, then strode into the forest.
As soon as they entered the forest, they heard some sounds. Among the thick branches and leaves above, beast-like creatures were flying over them continuously. They could see toads with wings, and a pair of extremely deadly eyes. Basically, all creatures that were born here were bloodthirsty by nature, very terrifying.
“Be careful, everyone. These winged toads are very poisonous. It won’t be a joke if you are attacked by one. This forest is at least thousands of miles wide. No one can tell how many evil creatures are in here. Be alert at all times,” Jiang Chen reminded.
“I suggest that everyone should get closer so that we can look at each other’s back during an emergency.” Liang Qiao spoke.
Their movement s.h.i.+fted to a slower speed. After all, they weren’t familiar with the place, and they had to be careful with every step they took. It had to be said that this forest was really very huge. Various types of plants were living so closely together as though they had become intertwined. There were very few ways left for them to go, but since they were the experts of the experts, they could easily find their path by sweeping the forest with their divine sense. There was no way that they would get lost.
The croaks made by the toads were incomparably unpleasant. The more one listened, the more one’s mind would be affected, making the person irritated.
“Why are these flying toads keep following us?” Dong Fei asked curiously.
“They have regarded us as their prey. This group of flying toads are observing our strength, otherwise they should have already attacked us,” replied Yang Bufan with a smile.
These evil creatures had long developed their intelligence. They had already consumed human blood. So, naturally, they would treat Jiang Chen and his comrades as their prey. Something as such was common in the Golden Horizon.
Suddenly, a flying toad swooped down at Jiang Chen’s encampment with its fluttering wings.
Liang Qiao waved and struck out a ray of light. It was as sharp as a sword, penetrating through the body of the flying toad. The corpse of the toad fell from mid-air.
“Can’t even withstand a single blow. What made it so capable in regarding us as their prey? Courting death.”
Liang Qiao snorted coldly. He began to not put the toads in his eyes after getting rid of a black toad with ease.
“Why did you kill it?” Jiang Chen darted a glare at Liang Qiao.
“What’s wrong Senior Brother Jiang?” Dong Fei asked, puzzled. Killing an evil creature didn’t seem like a big deal to him.
“It was just a test from the flying toad. It wouldn’t dare to really attack us. Furthermore, these evil creatures live in groups. By killing one of their kind, you will arouse their anger, and put all of us to endless trouble,” Jiang Chen said.
He had entered the forest for the sake of finding treasures. He had no interest in these evil flying toads at all, and didn’t want to clash with them as that would be too troublesome.
*Hua La La…….*
Sure enough, as soon as Jiang Chen’s words faded, the sound of fluttering wings filled the air like waves in water. After that, the sky above was blotted out by innumerable flying toads. Looking at such a scene made people’s scalp tingle, and those terrible sounds was really disturbing.
“Dammit! Why is there so many of such flying toads?” Dong Fei couldn’t help but curse.
“There are at least a few thousand of them. More are flying over here from the other side. Truly horrifying.”
One of them spoke. Such a scene was too frightening, even with their cultivation base.
“Attention everyone. We must not underestimate these flying toads. Although their strength isn’t powerful, there are too many of them. Their real weapon is their poison. It can erode even one’s Immortal Qi. If one is careless in dealing with them, one may be injured seriously or killed.”
Yang Bufan’s expression turned grim. Despite being an Evil Lord and having witnessed countless devils, it was his first time encountering such a scene. Evil creatures like these flying toads were most difficult to deal with.
Everyone became tensed as this happened not long after they arrived in the Golden Horizon. It seemed that their remaining expedition in the Golden Horizon wouldn’t be any easier. No one could tell what kind of dangers awaited them in a month’s time, but they could only talk about this later. The urgent task right now was to deal with these flying toads.
Countless flying toads dived down fearlessly. The sky became dark. Howls reverberated through the air. Jiang Chen’s group weren’t afraid of these flying toads, but there were just too many of them. If these flying toads continued to attack in such a way, they might lose their defence at any time. If they were infected by the poison, the consequences would be unimaginable.
Yang Bufan yelled, then waved out a barrier of light, eliminating a ma.s.sive number of flying toads. The others also sent out their attacks. The flying toads were coming from all directions, seeming angry and determined to annihilate these human intruders.
With so many experts attacking at the same time, large number of flying toads fell to the ground, forming a small hill.
This was far from over, however. More and more flying toads emerged, hovering over them. The flying toads seemed like moths darting into the flame, but no one from the group showed any fear. Their sharp tusks spurted out venom like rockets everywhere. Whenever the trunk of the tree was contaminated by the poison, the plant would die instantly. A lot of bushes had already been destroyed. Flying toads could be seen everywhere. This was a disaster. And the scene looked like the end of the world.
Such a scene would surely deal too much psychological pressure to an expert no matter how high his cultivation base was. Venoms were spurted out in all directions. The waves of croaks let out by the flying toads were driving them crazy.
“Little Chen, the nature of these creatures is evil. Venom as such in particular is most afraid of fire. Your flames are the greatest enemy of these devils,” Big Yellow said.
“Alright.” Jiang Chen nodded, knowing that now was not the time to hold back his power.
“True Dragon Fire!”
Jiang Chen let out a yell and waved, producing a sea of fire that instantly formed a fire s.h.i.+eld over them. Not only did Jiang Chen’s flames played a defensive role, it also could be used as an offence. Under his control, the sea of flames turned into an indestructible weapon thrusting at those flying toads.
The originally fearless flying toads began to make shrill cries. Large number of them were burned to death, not even a single residue was left. After all, Jiang Chen’s flames was just too powerful. The combination of True Dragon Fire and True Thunderfire is really invincible. This was undeniably the bane of all devils.
After the flame attack, Jiang Chen didn’t stop. He continued to launch a second wave of attack. Huge fireb.a.l.l.s was launched by him in all directions. When it hit a group of flying toads, due to their number being many and they were incredibly close to one another, ma.s.sive number of flying toads were incinerated in the fierce flames.
The scene was like firewood encountering a violent flame. The flying toads were equivalent to firewood. The moment one caught fire, it spread to ten more, then to a hundred more. In a matter of a few breaths, all the flying toads in the sky turned into flames. That was no doubt a spectacular scene.
Thousands of flying toads died. The remaining flying toads finally revealed a look of fear. Jiang Chen’s flames was their greatest enemy, and the only thing that made them feel scared.
