Versatile Mage - Chapter 2759
Chapter 2759: Rescue Commander Hua
“If we can find a living Sacred Holy Totem, we still stand a chance in the fight against the Ocean Godly Horde,” Ms. Ms. Tangyue said.
Song Feiyao stared at Mo Fan. She finally understood his true intention. He wanted to improve the East Coastline’s dire situation. The Ocean Demons were too powerful. Even a common Ruler-level demon was capable of threatening mages of the same level. Meanwhile, the totem beasts were far more powerful than the common demons on the dry land. If they wanted to fight the Ocean Demons, the totem beasts played key roles in the battle.
Whenever Song Feiyao recalled how the Licheng Afterglow Islanders sacrificed the people in the fortress for the sake of protecting themselves in the middle of the war against the Ocean Demons, she hated the islanders even more. She was ashamed to be a part of Licheng Afterglow Island. In the middle of such a disaster, everyone should have been contributing to help each other.
“If you need any help from me, please don’t hesitate to let me know,” Song Feiyao said solemnly to Mo Fan. She felt like she could trust him now.
“It’s fine as long as you know where you stand and understand the truth and importance of the Green East Sea God,” said Mo Fan.
Ms. Tangyue smiled. She was going to ask some questions to know more about the Green East Sea God, but her phone rang.
Ms. Tangyue answered the call. The person on the other end of the line talked briefly, but Ms. Tangyue had a serious look on her face.
“Mo Fan, the Elder of the Magic Court summons me back. It must be something urgent,” said Ms. Tangyue.
“Is it from the Lingyin Enforcement Union?” Mo Fan looked up at Lingyin Mountain.
“The Elder of the Magic Court asked me to bring you with me,” said Ms. Ms. Tangyue.
“Tang Zhong asked me to come along with you?” Mo Fan was puzzled.
They let the three greatest totem beasts play in the West Lake while Mo Fan, Ms. Tangyue, and Song Feiyao headed toward Lingyin Mountain.
The bamboo grove inside the Lingyin Mountain was the entrance to the Lingyin Enforcement Union. When the trio arrived at the destination, Tang Zhong stood in the grove waiting for them. It was clear that he did not intend to let them enter the Lingyin Enforcement Union any further.
Tang Zhong pointed at one corner of the grove. “Let’s go over there.”
He looked depressed and worried. As an experienced Elder of the Magic Court, he seldom looked so restless. Something big must have happened.
“Who is she?” Tang Zhong was alarmed when he saw Song Feiyao.
“She’s the Totem Guardian of the Green East Sea God. She came from Licheng Afterglow Island,” explained Mo Fan. “Mr. Tang, what’s the matter? Tell us. Are we still not worthy of your trust?”
“It’s my own problem. I’m a bit too nervous. I intended to ask Ms. Ms. Tangyue and her Black Totem Snake to help me with something. But since you’re around, I think it’s best to let you handle it,” said Tang Zhong.
“What exactly is going on?” Mo Fan frowned.
“A VIP has been paying attention to you since you were in Pearl Institution. He looked after you well…” said Tang Zhong.
“Has something happened to Commander Hua?” Mo Fan cried out in shock.
When they were at Emperor Qin Island, Commander Hua had admitted that he was the “VIP” who had been looking after Mo Fan. After the great disaster at the Ancient Capital, he allowed Mo Fan to join the Ancient Capital Institute through his own connections.
Commander Hua was the one who had highly recommended Shao Zheng to be the Totem Emissary.
The moment Tang Zhong mentioned a VIP who had looked after him, Mo Fan knew it was Commander Hua.
Tang Zhong coughed. His face reddened. “It’s not as bad as that. But he has most likely fallen.”
Mo Fan’s jaw dropped. Mo Fan remembered Commander Hua calmly eating squid skewers and talking with them. He didn’t want to lose him.
“I thought Commander Hua was just gauging the Emperor’s strength?” asked Mo Fan. “How did he die?”
“Commander Hua is not dead yet!” Ms. Tangyue rolled her eyes.
“I’m not very clear about his exact situation. Commander Hua’s nature is somewhat… elusive,” said Tang Zhong. “All I know is that he is in a complicated state. I guessed he is trapped somewhere near Hawaii and is severely wounded.”
“That is no different than waiting for death,” said Mo Fan.
Hawaii had long become one of the army’s fortresses. It served as one of the important strategic war zones for the Americans to gain a deeper understanding of their enemy lines.
The Ocean Demons had harmed the Americans, especially at San Francisco. All of their blockbuster movies about monsters and disasters had come to fruition.
Not long ago, Mo Fan learned that the Americans had basically retreated from Hawaii. Hawaii was located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The situation there was dire. It was no different than being like a lone island in the middle of the Ocean Demons’ nest.
If Commander Hua was trapped inside and severely wounded, the mastermind behind the war—The Black Claw Emperor— would certainly summon powerful creatures and besiege Hawaii. It would go to any length to get rid of the person who had continuously got in its way of attacking the East Chinese Coastline.
“Shut up, Mo Fan!” Tang Zhong glared at Mo Fan. “The situation is extremely urgent. But there’s still hope that we can rescue him.”
“I’m all ears,” said Mo Fan.
“The Black Claw Emperor is severely injured, too. Commander Hua and the Black Claw Emperor are recuperating somewhere nearby the Pacific Ocean. We must rescue Commander Hua before the Black Claw Emperor gathers its subordinates to kill him,” said Tang Zhong.
“Reaching the center of the Pacific Ocean is an arduous task,” said Mo Fan.
“Yes. Our army has had great difficulty even to cross half of the Pacific Ocean. According to the Enforcement Union’s investigation, other forces have interfered in Commander Hua’s mission against the Black Claw Emperor,” Tang Zhong said solemnly.
“Other forces?” Mo Fan noticed something else in Tang Zhong’s face.
“For now, we won’t inform the public, the government, the army, Magic Association, Hunter Union, and Family Union. We need to undertake our rescue mission in secret,” said Tang Zhong.
“Is it because of the Godly Horde Prophets?” Mo Fan asked gravely.
It was clear that Tang Zhong did not want everyone to learn about Commander Hua’s injury. Mo Fan didn’t understand why the information needed to be hidden.
Commander Hua’s exact location was critical. Once the Ocean Godly Horde found out his location, Commander Hua would be isolated in the Pacific Ocean.
The Godly Horde Prophet could manipulate humans’ minds. There was a high possibility that the Godly Horde Prophet’s puppets were hiding among the army, government, Magic Association, and other organizations. Once, the South Emperor manipulated an Ice Element Forbidden Mage’s mind and learnt about major plans.
In the past, the demons on the dry land would fight on a large scale instead of planning their move. But the demons had evolved…
