Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
Jon had thought that the swordfish tribe would test the waters a few more times and make sure that a small force could not defeat Jon before making their move.
However, he did not expect that the swordfish tribe would come to attack them so quickly.
At the intersection between the sea and the sky, a large area of dark clouds covered the entire distance. Swordfish knight troops which covered by undersea mountains and plains, lined up neatly and pressed towards them with a solemn atmosphere.
Before they arrived, their intimidation had already arrived. The creatures of the elemental tribe were completely panicking. Even the four elders and Daria, who had already promoted to commander-level, could not help but feel fear towards the great power of the army.
Many of them were shivering as if they wanted to escape at the last minute.
“What are you panicking for?!”
Jon’s voice suddenly sounded. At the same time, he pulled out his Ice Magic Sword. He spread out his cold air and froze the entire sea area. The ice in the sea seemed to be growing and extending into the distance.
The power that Jon used made the elemental creatures quiet down for a short while, and at the same time, dispelled some of the fear in their hearts.
“Can you escape? The swordfish tribe’s speed is more than ten times faster than yours. Other than fighting head-on to open a bloody path, we have no choice but to survive. If you don’t want to die like this, then pick up the weapons in your hands and follow me to fight our way out of this encirclement!”
“Leader is right! If you compromise for peace, then you will die peacefully. If you fight for peace, then you will live peacefully. Follow leader and fight your way out of this encirclement!”, the deep-sea water fairy elder raised his arms and shouted, actively responding to Jon’s declaration of war.
“You’re right. Brothers, draw your swords and fight your way out of this encirclement!”
The elemental creatures ‘fighting spirit soared. As long as Jon stood there with his sword, they would have endless confidence. They believed that as long as they followed Jon, they would definitely be able to fight their way out of the swordfish tribe’s army.
But what Jon wanted was far more than just escaping!
‘Ding! Host’s will detected. Do you wish to use 10,000 divine power to activate a wide-area destructive skill?’
In the swordfish tribe’s formation, the young swordfish knight asked a veteran soldier who had been fighting for many years, puzzled,
“Senior, it’s only a tribe of about 100 elemental creatures. Why would our swordfish tribe come out in full force? Isn’t this like using a butcher’s knife to kill a chicken?”
The old warrior looked into the distance with a gloomy expression. It seemed to be recalling some past events. The lives in its memories could still bring fear to it even a long period of time had passed. Even if it was just the glance of that creature in its memories, it still made its heart contract violently even until now!
“You don’t understand… I hope you’ll never understand. In front of some powers, numbers don’t have any meaning at all. Going out in full force is like a child waking up at night, asking a few more companions to bolster their courage in the night.”
The old warrior seemed to be answering the young knight’s question, but also seemed to be mumbling to himself.
Suddenly, there was a commotion in the army formation,
the troops in front suddenly shouted in panic,
Then, there were a lot of unclear shouting of “It’s coming, it’s coming!”, “What’s going on, what happened? What on Earth happened?”. “How did it do it? Where are our people, where are they!?”. “Demons, they are demons that crawled out of the Abyss to reap lives!”. “Don’t Panic! Don’t Panic! Those behind, take the lead! Those behind, take the lead!”. “We’ve lost, we’ve lost…” “Run!”.
The world finally unified into one voice. The fighting spiritof the army was not there, and the morale of the soldiers had collapsed. Before the young knight could even figure out what had happened, it saw that the front part of the battlefield had suddenly become disordered. Everyone threw away their armors and retreated.
A sword light flew over from the front, and ice crystals scattered in all directions.
The swordfish wall in the front was torn apart, and the young knight finally saw the battlefield in the front that was blocked previously.
Broken limbs were everywhere, and there were ice crystals and seawater that were dyed red with blood everywhere,
the elemental creatures that were holding the two-meter-long ice crystal longsword rushed into their army formation like tigers rushing to a flock of sheep. None of their companions could effectively resist.
The elemental creature with the longsword was like a god of war or a god of death, crazily harvesting the lives of the swordfish knights.
He suddenly glanced over,
Then, he casually raised his sword and swung it in this direction. Sword light spread out, and ice crystals flew in this direction densely as if they were shot from a machine gun.
The world in front of its eyes suddenly darkened, and the young knight felt that the world was beginning to fall…
When Jon heard the system’s notification, he was surprised that divine power could be used in such a way?
Then, without any hesitation, he chose “Yes”.
The wide-area killing skill that the system activated was indeed powered by divine power.
The 10,000-men army of the swordfish tribe was wiped out instantly…
It was like a pencil mark on a piece of white paper being erased by an eraser…
Half of the swordfish knights disappeared from this world.
It was a very stealth attack. Some swordfish knights didn’t even feel it themselves. However, when they turned around, they found that all their companions on the left had disappeared in the last moment.
All the living beings, including Jon, were stunned by this sudden change.
The deep-sea fairy elder was the first one to react. She raised her sword and shouted, “Charge!”
“This is the attack ability of our leader, which is as powerful as that of a god. We will definitely win! Charge!”
Hearing the shout, Jon seemed to have woken up from a dream. He took the lead and charged into the formation of the swordfish tribe.
As he was a middle-level lord, even an ordinary punch of his would require the joint efforts of 10 knights to withstand. Therefore, he could not feel any resistance. Like a hot knife cutting through oil, he easily tore apart the swordfish knights’ formation and defeated the enemy.
On the virtual screen in front of him, the marks of the enemy changed rapidly. Soon, Jon found the strongest enemy.
Swordfish leader, level 42 quasi-lord rank.
Description: A swordfish warrior who has grown into a king after experiencing the most battles possess the most experienced and powerful combat techniques.
It was another quasi-lord-level powerhouse who was 20 levels higher than Jon. He had only killed one about three days ago.
This swordfish leader should be slightly stronger than the demon leader because the demon leader had only reached the quasi-lord-level after going berserk. However, this swordfish leader was a normal quasi-lord-level powerhouse. However, Jon was no longer the Jon from three days ago.
The swordfish leader looked at Jon coldly, “I’ve killed many strong warriors like you in my long battle career, especially in the sea and abyss. However, without exception, I was the one who survived in the end. You’re too young and reckless. If you could hide and steadily level up another ten levels, you would definitely be able to defeat me. However, you couldn’t keep your cool and challenged me with just a mere level 22. Do you really think that you can defeat me by surpassing 20 levels? Pay the price, you arrogant b*stard!”
“Heh.”, Jon laughed. “All the trash I know have the same characteristic. They talk too much nonsense.”
