Chapter 2765: Big Snakes in the Volcano
The familiar voice of Night Rakshasa came from a deeper part of the valley.
Mo Fan followed the sound and saw Night Rakshasa in black boots and gloves running toward them. Its movement was as light and agile as ever.
“Meow?” Night Rakshasa landed on Jiang Yu’s shoulder and stared at Mo Fan with moonstone eyes. Its eyes were questioning Mo Fan’s presence.
Mo Fan extended his hand and touched Night Rakshasa. This little dark elf cat was still so adorable. The dark hair on its whole body made it appear noble and ancient.
Mo Fan felt that Jiang Yu, instead, was the servant and Night Rakshasa was a laid-back but noble queen.
“Are there any clues yet? We’re counting on you to find Commander Hua,” said Pang Lai.
“Meow,” Night Rakshasa responded.
Jiang Yu’s eyes lit up. “Hurry up and take us there. We must find our National Commander as soon as possible!” he said to Night Rakshasa.
They followed Night Rakshasa to the deeper part of the valley. It turned out there was a dark path. It was probably a small tourist attraction in the past. The demons could not find it, but there were obvious signs along the way.
They passed through this path and walked about a dozen kilometers in a tropical jungle before a mountain appeared in front of them. When they arrived at a place where the view was clear and not blocked by mountains and trees, they found they were very close to a cone-shaped volcano.
Some active volcanoes were easy to identify. They could identify it by looking around and making sure if there were lush plants around it. If there were only bare rocks around then they needed to be careful. The volcano still might erupt.
It was the case with the cone-shaped volcano in front of them. At first glance, there was a little white smoke on the volcanic rocks. It had probably just spewed out red and hot magma not long ago. However, it seemed to be a small eruption.
Their destination was not the cone-shaped volcano, but a mountain separated by it. The cone-shaped volcano was much higher than the mountain ridge they were on. They felt as if a giant creature watched them as they walked up the ridge.
The cone-shaped volcano suddenly made a strange sound like a muffled thunder. Something red-hot condensed and flowed little by little along the crater of the cone-shaped volcano halfway up the mountain like a snake. Several lavas overflowed down the steep mountain like a stream.
“Find cover. There’s something inside!” Pang Lai’s expression suddenly changed.
Everyone rushed down the ridge and hid at a place facing back to the cone-shaped volcano. The cone-shaped volcano suddenly burst out countless fireballs.
When the fireballs were in the crater, they looked like candle fire. However, when it rolled in mid-air and fell to the ridge where Mo Fan and others were, they found that the fireballs were as large as a house. The fireballs could create pits and cracks on the surface of the ridge.
There were quite a lot of such fireballs that flew out from different directions of the cone-shaped volcano. Several heads raised up from the crater, and their long necks moved in the flames. They were huge and terrifying.
Mo Fan glanced at it. Although it was dozens of kilometers apart, Mo Fan could not help but take a deep breath in concern.
Those heads belonged to volcanic snakes with molten fire scales all over their bodies, and there were many of them. Some snakes had their heads in the mid-air, some hung halfway up the mountainside, and some swayed back and forth. The ones protruding from the cone-shaped crater were all snakeheads. Only a small part of the snakes were exposed. Their long bodies were still hidden in the volcano.
“There seems to be five snakes in total. Is there a nest of volcanic snakes there?” Mo Fan asked.
Each of their heads was different. Some had a terrifying eye on their forehead; some had a single horn on their heads; some had huge fan-like gills; some had a poisonous crown. These volcanic snakes were not ordinary ruler-level. The intimidating aura they radiated seemed much stronger than that of the Strange Lump Squid King.
A strange sound wave came from mid-air. Above the thick smoke, a stingray with a dark metallic body slowly flew to the volcanic snakes. It was so big that it looked like a dark cloud over the volcano.
Under its open wings were all flat fan-like air holes, and some smaller stingrays flowed in and out of those holes.
The metallic black stingray king seemed to be communicating with the big snakes in the volcano. After a while, the metallic black stingray king flew again, and the five big snakes in the volcano also slowly returned to the cone-shaped volcano.
Mo Fan frowned. The level of the stingray king would not be lower than that of Green East Sea God. Fortunately, he had always been careful and left the Green East Sea God in the sky. It would be difficult to escape if they ran into this stingray king.
All of them were high-level creatures. Hawaii was about to become the den of Ocean Demons.The Black Claw Emperor had gone to great lengths to get rid of Commander Hua.
“The most important thing to be careful of is that thing in the sky. It has strong detection capabilities, and its strength is formidable,” Pang Lai said to everyone.
Even the small stingrays could detect Mo Fan’s shadow ability, so the stingray king could undoubtedly do it too. It was no wonder everyone was careful not to use magic along the way. They were afraid of being detected if they used even a bit of magic
“What about the five big snakes in the volcano?” Mo Fan asked.
“We better not let that one target us. Otherwise, we will end up dead,” Pang Lai said.
Mo Fan was puzzled. Pan Lai had said “that one” but there were five snakes.
Pang Lai did not explain further. Night Rakshasa led the way, followed by the masters of the Forbidden City. Everyone’s faces showed that they were still a little nervous and uneasy.
As people from the Forbidden City, they were already the top among the Mages in China. Even if they faced some fierce demons in the country, they would not be afraid.
But after they came to Hawaii, they had been very cautious. In front of the tyrannical Ocean Demons, they could only hide, tremble, and pray that Ocean Demons would not detect them.
