1510 Demonic Bats
The first miserable scream echoed out, and this meant that someone had died.
They were facing the third batch of demons without the assistance of Jiang Chen's Buddhist Light, and it was inevitable that they would suffer some casualties.
Jiang Chen wore a stern look. The Great Celestial Demon hadn't killed him because he disdained to attack, and he wanted to leave him until the end.
However, if Jiang Chen released the Buddhist Light, the Great Celestial Demon would almost certainly attack him.
What was more crucial was that the sole person that the Great Celestial Demon took seriously was the heavily armed man.
Demons were cunning, and the Great Celestial Demon wanted to exhaust the Titled Martial Artist before fighting him.
A bunch of demons attacked the heavily armed man together. They weren't Earth Demon Kings, but Earth Demon Emperors.
However, he still had the upper hand, and the Earth Demon Emperors, as well as more than 100 human demons, couldn't approach him.
But the price he had to pay for this was the intense consumption of his power.
In the end, when most of the third batch of demons had been exterminated, the heavily armed man and the willful woman were left exhausted and gasping for breath.
Jiang Chen and the people near him didn't fare any better, and their casualties surpassed half of their number due to the 108 earth demons.
"As long as we can kill this Great Celestial Demon, we can escape."
The survivors didn't give in to despair, and their ferocious gazes were fixed on the sole Great Celestial Demon.
The heavily armed man looked toward Jiang Chen and gave him a meaningful glance.
"He, he." The Great Celestial Demon laughed in a scary way. He discerned clearly the crowd's aims, and this was why his gaze became ice-cold.
The Great Celestial Demon didn't say anything. He just spread out his arms and raised them high, as a large amount of black gas appeared behind him. This demonic energy went through a transformation, and it turned into many bats.
Hope was already a scarce commodity in the people who were still trapped, but now their expressions changed drastically, and their hearts sank. They thought that they were doomed.
They were facing a Great Celestial Demon that could summon demonic bats that possessed great destructive power.
The heavily armed man realized that this was a matter of life and death, and, if he didn't take any risks, he would die here along with the princess.
"You should stand beside the princess and cast your Buddhist techniques," the heavily armed man shouted at Jiang Chen.
"If you had made up your mind earlier, wouldn't it have been better?" Jiang Chen muttered to himself, while he followed the man's instructions and flew to the princess's side before he released the Buddhist Light once again.
Jiang Chen didn't really want to protect the princess, and he had done so just so that the heavily armed man could fight without any qualms.
His magical clone would shortly achieve a breakthrough, but he still mustn't place all his hopes on it before it occurred.
"You are courting death!"
When the Great Celestial Demon saw that Jiang Chen still dared to use the Buddhist Light and provoke him, he flew into a rage, and all his demonic bats flew toward Jiang Chen.
Those demonic bats' power was on par with an earth demon. But their numbers were in the thousands and tens of thousands.
The heavily armed man who was about to commence on a great battle became worried about the princess, and he turned his head to take a look at her.
"Everyone, you should all go there and form a protective ring. As for the Great Celestial Demon, just leave it to me," the heavily armed man instructed them.
His power was the greatest here, and this was why people obeyed his instructions.
All of the remaining people rushed toward Jiang Chen and the princess, and they counted on the Buddhist Light to resist the demonic bats.
At this moment, the princess realized the gravity of the situation, and her face became filled with worry.
"You shouldn't cower and hide here. Go and help General Numa," the princess glared angrily at the people around her and shouted.
If the people in the vicinity hadn't noticed that a worried and helpless look was plastered on her face, they would have surely given her two slaps.
However, there was still someone who couldn't control his impulse, and he slapped her decisively, He left her confused and disoriented!
"Shut up, if you hadn't been here, our situation wouldn't have been so thorny," Jiang Chen spoke resentfully.
General Numa considered preserving the princess's life his number one priority, and he treasured her even more than his own life. Everything he had done was for ensuring the princess's safety.
Jiang Chen admired the man greatly for his loyalty, but when he recalled the woman's character, he felt that she didn't deserve his loyalty.
"You! You!" The princess felt dizzy from the slaps, and she couldn't speak for a long while.
General Numa was now fighting against the Great Celestial Demon.
"An Angry Horse Reaches the Mountain Pass!"
The general's heavy armor included a set of gloves made out of steel. A power that seemed great enough to destroy the world erupted out of the steel gloves.
"Humph! Asura Demonic Blades: The World's Outcast!" The Great Celestial Demon didn't dare to take his opponent carelessly, and he waved the sharp blade in his hand crazily.
A blood-red blade beam streaked across the air, and a long-range attack was launched once again at General Numa.
This time, General Numa's path wasn't obstructed, and he extinguished the blade beam. He crushed everything in his path!
The Great Celestial Demon became flustered, and he quickly used the sharp blade as a shield. He put it in front of his chest.
The iron gloves struck the blade and bent it, but just when it was about to crush the blade, its energy was obstructed, and both sides ended up deadlocked for a brief moment.
All of a sudden, General Numa let out a shout, while his Fist Energy erupted out and destroyed the demonic blade. Then his fist struck the Great Celestial Demon heavily.
A muffled groan could be heard, and the Great Celestial Demon was sent flying away, while his demonic energy churned and nearly collapsed.
"Good! As expected of General Numa!" The princess shouted excitedly.
Other people in the vicinity also became spirited, and it was only Jiang Chen whose expression was still grave.
The next second, the delighted expressions plastered on people's faces stiffened, and it could be seen that General Numa's heavy armor started cracking open. It started falling apart, piece after piece.
"The Iron Fist King has lost his iron gloves. How can anything good come out of this?" Someone became quite anxious.
The Iron Fist King was General Numa's title, and his heavy armor was his symbol. Now, his heavy armor had been destroyed, and the current situation was anything but encouraging.
"You are the only person who has ever managed to injure me within this Demonic Domain. But it's a pity that you will still have to die here."
Contained anger was apparent in the Great Celestial Demon, and he waved his arms before he condensed the demonic energy into another identical demonic blade.
"I will properly enjoy your pain and suffering before killing you," he said. The Great Celestial Demon possessed a savage nature befitting demons, and his eyes shone with excitement.
It could be seen that all the demonic bats flew toward Jiang Chen, and their target was the princess.
"Princess!" General Numa became anxious. He wanted to go back to save her, but he was obstructed by the great celestial demon.
"Look on properly as the person you care about is killed," as the Great Celestial Demon spoke, the innumerable demonic bats turned into a sharp blade that disregarded the Buddhist Light and flew over there ferociously.
"We're done for!"
Despair welled up in everyone's hearts. The disparity between their power was too great, and they didn't have anymore hope.
It was nearly at the same time that a golden radiance appeared around Jiang Chen's eyes, and the Buddhist Power released by him became greater, while his Buddhist Willpower advanced by leaps and bounds.
The first one to detect such changes was the Great Celestial Demon, and his expression changed for the first time.
"Holy Seal First Move: World-Purifying Holy Flame!"
When the Great Celestial Demon turned, he saw Jiang Chen weaving hand signs and a flame appeared in the Buddhist Light.
It seemed as if the Buddhist Light had been set on fire, and it turned into a dazzling golden holy flame.
When the giant demonic blade formed by the demonic bats came in contact with the holy flames, it seemed as if it became corroded, and it started burning from its tip before the flames spread to its blade and hilt. It was burned thoroughly, and nothing was left of it.
This sudden change dumbfounded the people who had prepared themselves for their imminent deaths.
"Hateful!" The Great Celestial Demon frowned and clenched his fists.
