A giant mushroom cloud rose over the Demon City. It was formed by furious energies.
Those shrouded in the mushroom cloud who hadn't moved fast enough all died immediately.
The fight between the allied forces and the Nether World School was also suspended due to a series of deafening bangs.
"Ha, ha, ha, what a bunch of morons!" One of the denizens of the Nether World School taunted them emotionlessly. He started to retreat.
The explosion of the Demon Fetus meant the core of this world was also broken.
Consequently, although the Alien Battlefield wasn't spinning, it would fall apart in a very short while and be forgotten forever.
"Save the injured!"
Long Xing had made a wise decision. He'd chosen to fight the Nether World School instead of attacking the Demon Fetus. As a result, he was saved by the bell.
He was directing other allied forces in a righteous manner, as if this failure had had nothing to do with him.
The allied forces didn't have any choice. They acted one after another to save those on the verge of death.
Xiao Hongxue was also among the injured.
"Let's get out of here."
They were all tired. They didn't want to fight the Demons anymore. Anyway, the Demons had lost the Demon Fetus, and they wouldn't be able to cause them any big troubles anymore.
The members of the Heavenly Palace and the celestial palace were still hovering around, because they hadn't seen their leader or vice leader yet.
However, as the whole world was collapsing, they had to leave.
"Look there. There's a person!"
They found a person lying below where the already dispersed mushroom cloud had been just as they were about to leave.
A shadow jumped on the person, moving faster than electricity. It was that boy.
The members of the Heavenly Palace and the celestial palace were pleasantly surprised to see that. They hurried over.
The allied forces, who were about to leave as well, were also surprised. He'd remained safe and sound at the center of the explosion?
"Don't approach Jiang Chen!"
Someone stopped them just when everyone was going to approach to see what had happened.
And this person was Xiao Nuo, who was extremely close to Jiang Chen.
They couldn't help but gasp after fixing their eyes on the person.
The cocoon covering Jiang Chen was ragged and turning into watery blood.
But that was not the most important thing. The most important thing was certainly Jiang Chen's status.
The Demon energy in him was turbulent. In spite of the coma, the evil energy was still soaring.
Who knew what would happen when he woke up?
"He has been seized by Demons because he absorbed much of the Demon Fetus's energy. And he isn't in a stable state for the moment. There might be another explosion, just like the one just now," a Venerable Sovereign said after analyzing the situation.
Everyone was scared away at the mention of another explosion.
"Don't worry. Even if it happens, it won't be as powerful as the last one."
The Heavenly Palace and the celestial palace were going to take Jiang Chen back with them, while others were discussing the matter.
"Red Cloud Venerable, it's impossible to save Jiang Chen. He could explode at any time. There is no other way," someone told her.
Red Cloud Venerable was pulling a long face. She looked as cold as frost.
"Jiang Chen must have collaborated with the Demon Fetus. Otherwise how could he have survived?"
However, a voice rang out. It made Xiao Nuo frown.
It was Xiao Hongxue's.
"The explosion must've had something to do with Jiang Chen." He was eager to pass the buck for the bad decision to someone else.
All of those races had participated in this war. The whole world had been mobilized.
Once it ended, all worlds would know what had happened in the war.
Those with merits would be praised.
Those with faults would be spurned.
Xiao Hongxue had insisted on attacking the Demon Fetus, which led to countless people's deaths. He was going to try to blame Jiang Chen for that.
However, as soon as he finished speaking, he felt hit by a cold energy.
He looked over. Not far away from him, the little boy was on the verge of breaking out. In the process of accumulating strength, he looked as if he was really going to scratch Xiao Hongxue's head to pieces.
Fortunately, the Monster stopped the little boy.
"If things go on like this, Jiang Chen will either destroy himself or be seized by Demons, who will destroy him. We should leave him here or stop his pain. It's impossible to take him back with us."
Long Xing pretended to be sentimental.
However, the Heavenly Palace and the celestial palace certainly wouldn't agree.
The thing was when some of them had started taking Jiang Chen away, they'd been contaminated by the Demon energy and almost lost their senses.
Fortunately, Xiao Nuo had pulled them back in time.
"You see? The Demon energy alone is enough to make people go crazy. This is a time bomb. We have to get rid of him as soon as possible," Xiao Hongxue shouted.
"Xiao Hongxue, for heavens' sake, shut up!" Lin Yueru cursed him in anger.
At the same time, others started to discuss this. They were kind of persuaded by Xiao Hongxue.
Currently, Jiang Chen was indeed a time bomb. They had better ignite it before it was too late.
"Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, you are really a bunch of ridiculous people."
"Jiang Chen reorganized the world so that the Alien Battlefield wouldn't collide with the Sacred Zone."
"He used up his last bit of Extraordinary Power and sacrificed himself to consume the Demon Fetus's explosive power. Otherwise all of us would have died here."
"However, look at what you're doing!"
Standing in the air, the General Demon laughed at the people down below in a loud voice.
He didn't think Jiang Chen had any chance to survive either. So he thought it would be okay for him to disclose the truth so that those ugly people would get a shock.
His words caused a big disturbance.
It was Jiang Chen who changed the world? He was seized by Demons because of consuming the Demon Fetus's energy?
"We shouldn't believe anything the Demons say. Why would he have spoken for Jiang Chen out of good intentions?"
Since the little boy kept staring at him, Xiao Hongxue didn't have the nerve to be too straightforward. He just resorted to insinuations.
There was confusion in the little boy's eyes. He didn't realize that Xiao Hongxue had been insinuating something.
And most people wouldn't trust the General Demon anyway. Because of his identity and because they didn't think Jiang Chen was strong enough to do those things.
In the stalemate, someone pointed at Jiang Chen.
People looked over and turned pale. They saw Jiang Chen's arms start to turn into sand-like burnt-out coals.
As that Venerable Sovereign had said, it didn't matter whether Jiang Chen had collaborated with the Demons or been seized by Demons for some other reason.
No matter what the reason was, it wouldn't change the fact that he was dying.
The members of the Heavenly Palace and the celestial palace started to wail. Someone tried to approach Jiang Chen, but the Demon energy released by the broken arms was even richer, which made it impossible to approach him.
"The genuine blood of celestial phoenix. What about the genuine blood of celestial phoenix?" someone asked as soon as this idea had occurred to him.
Looks were thrown to Gao Qiufeng. Gao Qiufeng shook her head painfully. "He hasn't got the ability to revive in fire."
This conclusion took people's hope away.
"Give Jiang Chen a quick death. Don't let the Demon energy go on contaminating him."
This time it was Ye Qiu from the Demon Slayers Palace who spoke. He didn't have the heart to see Jiang Chen suffering.
The Alien Battlefield would fall apart very soon. There was not much time left for people to think.
Sorrow and anger could be seen in the little boy's eyes, as if he'd realized something. He let out a tiger's GROWL, looking at everyone on the scene in anger. Then he was going to run toward Jiang Chen despite the Monster's discouragement.
The strongest of the Monsters didn't want Whitey to be invaded by the Demon energy, because that could lead to some disastrous consequences.
Whitey tried his best to struggle. However, the Monster was too strong.
"I'll do it."
Xiao Nuo closed her eyes slowly. She was going to do it in person when her tears had stopped rolling down.
She knew if Jiang Chen was still alive, he would want this to end as soon as possible too.
Whitey was still struggling, and countless people from the Heavenly Palace were still wailing. In such an atmosphere, Xiao Nuo walked ahead step by step, holding a sharp sword in her hand.
"Jiang Chen, I am sorry."
