Chapter 273: Besieged by Hungry Wolves
A large number of golden runes appeared on the surface of the Sacred Mist Ferry, instantly condensing into a defensive barrier. The magic protective formation was activated.
All kinds of magical power and magical weapon attacks were all blocked outside.
Moreover, there were also several magical spells. Not only did it successfully block them, they were also bounced back!
These were all magical attacks that had not erupted yet. They had bounced back to their masters…
“This… Be careful!!”
In an instant, a few screams and wails mixed together!
Someone had been injured and killed by his own magical power!!
After discovering this information, the Magi, who had been focused on attacking the flying ferry, were horrified and panicked.
“How, how can this be?”
“This protective formation even bounce off attacks?!”
“How is this possible?”
The Magi were in a mess. Their gazes swept across the few Magi who were either injured or dead. They were shocked and in disbelief…
Currently, although the Magi of the Lower Ocean State had heard of the Nicholas family, they had not really seen them, let alone recognized this flying ferry… After all, this was not the Ferrero region.
The Ferrero region had just received the news, and they should still be on the way. As for Prince VII, Quinn, and the others, they had received the news through some internal channels, which was why they had come earlier than Ron and the others.
However, someone quickly reacted—
“A flying ferry with a defense formation that rebounds?”
“…Rebound… Defensive Barrier!”
“This is the Nicholas family clan from the Holy Light City!!”
“It’s as powerful as the rumors say.”
“So what? We’re from the Lower Ocean State. Since when did we allow the Holy Light City to come and behave atrociously!”
“Yes, there’s no need to be afraid! The probability of his flying ferry rebounding is not high!”
“They were the last to come out. They must have obtained the divine-tier inheritance! Don’t let them escape!”
“Break the energy shield first! Then force them to hand over the secret treasures!”
In the chaos, some people wanted to retreat, while others were excited. One after another, all the participants became excited. “Yes! Snatch the treasures!”
Amidst the indignation of the crowd, everyone seemed to be righteous and promoted it boldly…
Greed and killing intent burned in their eyes, burning extremely brightly!
With so many of them, they might not necessarily be the unlucky person to be injured and killed. They might be the one to snatch the Divine Mage’s inheritance!
“Didn’t that Old Man Pale Face earlier also advance from a Great Archmage to the Divine Realm?”
Thinking that they might advance another step forward, many Magi panted heavily… Coupled with the green light in their eyes, they looked like man-eating beasts.
Here was not the Holy Light City, which had become numbed from being shocked daily by news about the Nicholas family, nor was this the Ferrero. This was the Lower Ocean State.
The Nicholas family clan did not have much deterrence here, and they were not afraid of empty titles!
They had a large group of people, and they were in such a chaotic battle for the treasures. Even if the Nicholas family wanted to take revenge later, it would be impossible for them to find everyone. the hands of the Ferrero region could not reach so far… In any case, they definitely would not be able to find them!
After snatching the secret treasure, they would just go out and hide. There was no need to be afraid!
Among the treasure hunters, almost everyone had the same thought. Unless something bad happened to them, no one thought they would be unlucky.
Of course, there was another reason. The flying ferry had just been surrounded and it was about to leave. In the eyes of the treasure-snatching Magi, who was already glowing green, it must have been because they had the treasures and were guilty. Otherwise, why would they run without a word?
A few of them even firmly believed this. They had entered the cave and seen Ron and the other two, and then they fled when they saw the golden python.
In short, it all came down to one conclusion.
“They must have the secret treasures on them! Charge!!”
They were in luck like a group of blind cats running into a dead rat, and they attacked the Sacred Mist Ferry fiercely!
As they had to keep the magic protective formation up, the speed of the flying ferry could not be increased to the maximum. They were being pursued and attacked by a group of Magi… The energy of the magic formation was being consumed continuously.
During this period, there were also attacks which were rebounded. However, this move was mainly to catch people off guard. Once they were on guard, the number of injuries and fatalities decreased significantly.
After familiarizing themselves with the rebound mechanism of the defensive formation, the morale of the group of Magi increased greatly, and they stepped up their attacks.
Of the nearly 100 Great Archmagi, there were more than 20 who were above level-7. The group of them chased after the flying ferry and fought, their blood boiling!
In the distance, Quinn and the others watched all of this with grave expressions.
Norlis pressed her fingers together and looked nervously at the flying ferry. She was very worried.
“Nanny, is there any way to help them?”
“Miss, this won’t do. Even if we go over… we won’t be able to help much…”
Their current magical power, energy, physical condition, and mental state were all not good. Even if they were in their peak condition, they would not be able to help at all against nearly a hundred red-eyed Great Archmagi.
These Great Archmagi, whose eyes had turned red from killing, were like a group of hungry wolves. They would not rest until they had bitten off flesh.
Sigh… I hope the magic formation of the flying ferry can last a little longer. It might be able to shake off those red-eyed people.
At this moment, on the Sacred Mist Ferry.
“This is too much! How is this different from bandits!!” Leonard cursed angrily.
Dick looked at these people who were pestering them relentlessly, the killing intent in his eyes sharp and cold. He had not wanted to expend the energy he had saved…
However, these people had already offended him.
The powerful magical power of a top Great Archmage erupted. Dick waved his hand casually, and a cluster of flames shot into the sky and exploded. A sheet of shattered golden light from the flames landed on the enemy, and then with a bang, a sea of flames burned!!
“What is that… be careful!”
“Ahhh! Fire-based secret technique?!”
The sea of golden flames swept out, catching many people off guard. Many people screamed and died in the sea of flames!
Among those who had been drowned in this small sea of flames, there were more than 20 people. Only four lucky Great Archmagi had escaped alive. The others were all burned in an instant!!
Such a small amount of golden flames had burned a clean passageway in front of the flying ferry!!
Golden flames filled the sky, as if even the sky was burning…
The red-eyed Magi, who were still alive, felt as if a bucket of cold water had been poured on their head. They shuddered and retreated in shock, not daring to fight anymore!
Dick glanced at them, extremely calm. “Does anyone else want to die?”
The Magi shook their heads violently and took a few steps back!
The flying ferry flew for a distance under the protection of the blazing flames. Then, the blazing flames that filled the sky gathered into a cluster of flames and swept back into Dick’s body. Those Magi dared not pursue for a moment…
Not to mention the others, even Karuman, the old servant of the family clan, was extremely shocked…
…It turned out that Young Master Dick also knew that fire-based secret technique. Moreover, compared to the battle of return, his magical power level had increased again!
Harris asked worriedly, “Are you… alright?”
“I’m fine.” Dick’s voice was calm, but…
The magical power he had accumulated earlier had all been exhausted. He probably would not be able to fight for a while. Those people had not followed them, so they should be able to go home.
At the same time, in the ancestral hall of the Nicholas family.
Seeing the visitation scene, Romo nodded. Everything should be fine…
Just when he was thinking that “everything should be fine”, the System notifications sounded.
[Detected that the two genius descendants are facing a great threat. An urgent mission has been generated.]
