The Magus Era - Chapter 122
Chapter 122: Tonggong
Zhu Rong Tianming?
Ji Hao couldn't help but become speechless and slightly shocked by this name. Did he even know what Tianming meant? How dared he call himself that?!
Carefully, Ji Hao took a close evaluating look at Zhu Rong Tianming. He had red hair, red eyebrows, red pupils, even his skin looked like top-quality red-coloured jade, glittering and translucent, looming shining with a crystal-like luster. Innumerable simple ancient-like, mystical red spell symbols were flashing on Zhu Rong Tianming's body like fire sparks. But at the same time he seemed like and inverted reflection, seen on water surfaces, perfectly foiling him, and making him seem even more magically unique and extraordinary.
The red colour of the skin and hair of Zhu Rong Tianming were result of his body being fully impregnated with the fire essence power. You could imagine Zhu Rong Tianming's every single fine hair or cell being filled with great fire essence power of the purest form, which was why he had such an appearance.
Beside his body having a glowing red colour, Zhu Rong Tianming was also born with a tall and sturdy posture, and a handsome face. From head to feet, from the nose to the fingers, and from the earlobes to the toes, every detail of his body was as perfect as that of a sculpture, not even a single slight flaw could be found.
A great sense of power was being released from Zhu Rong Tianming's body, which was giving Ji Hao a terrifying pressure. Zhu Rong Tianming sat on a golden red, exquisite chair, while looking at Ji Hao with a looming smile on his face. By facing him, Ji Hao felt that a heavy pressure was coming from every direction and squeezing his soul, similar to having a huge stove hung right in front of him, which was letting out waves of scorching hot air, making Ji Hao's sweat pour down in streams;however, his perspiration evaporated almost immediately after it appeared, with only faint stains of salt remaining on his skin.
Ji Hao didn't say a word, but remained gazing at Zhu Rong Tianming. Ji Hao was making a perfectly silly and dumb expression, acting like a poor country boy who was deeply shocked by the noble prince.
Ying Shu and the other servant hurriedly saluted Zhu Rong Tianming. They kneeled on the fiery dragon's back, with their forehead tightly attached to the scales of the dragon.
’’Seventh Prince, this is Ji Hao, little miss Man Man's guest.’’
Zhu Rong Tianming let out a bland smile, while he looked at Ji Hao from up to down for a while, then slowly said, ’’When did Man Man make friends with these clan's barbarians? Father told us to look after Man Man before he had left, saying, don't let others deceive her, neither can you let any bad influence come near to her.’’
Pausing briefly, Zhu Rong Tianming pointed at Ji Hao, smiled and said, ’’We have to check when did this kid met Man Man, and how did he come to our country. This is the country of God! Ying Zhu, how can you just send him in here, to Man Man's palace like this?’’
Ying Zhu politely responded, ’’This honoured guest here has little miss Man Man's 'Fire God's order' tablet with him!’’
Zhu Rong Tianming dropped the glass, intentionally made a shocked face and heavily slapped his palm on the arm of the chair, while yelling, ’’This is even worse! The 'Fire God's order' tablets are life-saving treasures given by our father, the Fire God! Man Man is just messing around! We can still tolerate all kinds of her daily mischievous behaviours, but how dare she give her tablet to just a random barbaric kid?!’’
The smile on Zhu Rong Tianming's face suddenly faded. He pointed his finger at Ji Hao and yelled in a cold voice, ’’Guards! Take him down! Man Man would never give her tablet away, somehow this kid must have tricked Man Man. Hold him in prison and torture him!’’
Roaring sounds, sounding similar to muffled thunder, came from all directions - ’’As the prince ordered!’’- all of Zhu Rong Tianming's guards growled out, and their voices turned into thunder-like sounds, transmitted till far away.
Tens of zhangs tall, fully armed, horned and ferocious men rose into the air with feet trod on fiery clouds. They threw out glowing red chains that they had been holding in their hands all the time, while there were still tens of miles far away from Ji Hao. The ragingly blazing chains swirled in the air like fury dragons, formed into countless loops and flew towards Ji Hao.
Ji Hao sneered, took out Man Man's Fire God's order tablet and held it high in his hands, and said loudly, ’’Prince Tianming, I'm Man Man's friend.’’
Those chains thrown out by the few horned men suddenly paused in the air. Two spheres of flames burst out from Zhu Rong Tianming's pupils. He then said coldly, ’’Man Man was born in an incomparable noble family, how is it possible for her to have a lowly friend like you? Take him down and send him to prison! No mistakes are allowed!’’
Zhu Rong Tianming then pointed at the tablet that Ji Hao was holding;along with his movement, the Fire God's order tablet started vibrating violently, an irresistible great power gushed out from the tablet. All the bones of Ji Hao's fingers shattered simultaneously, and he instantly sensed a great pain, after which, the Fire God's Order tablet fleetingly rose into the air, transforming into a beam of fiery light, after which it flew into Zhu Rong Tianming's hand.
Without the tablet, those horned men scrupled for nothing. They laughed out loud and threw the chains out once again;blazing loops that transformed from the chain quickly flew towards Ji Hao. When those loops were still hundreds of zhangs away from Ji Hao, an invisible, suppressing power had already tightly coiled around Ji Hao as if it were innumerable serpents, disabling Ji Hao movements.
He couldn't move his body, not even a little bit.
Ji Hao tightened his body as much as he could, however, no matter how hard he tried, that invisible suppressing power continued being overwhelming.
Amongst these horned men who had launched attacks towards Ji Hao, the weakest one was at the peak-senior level;not to mention that two or three of them were releasing power senses that felt similar to hell, Ji Hao didn't dared to even guess their actual power-level. Countless spell symbols were shining on the surfaces of their chains;every chain had been embossed with more spell symbols than even Ji Zhuo's inherited magical treasure had, which clearly showed how powerful these chains were.
Tens of men with terrifying power-levels, holding powerful magical treasures in their hands, had launched their attacks together at Ji Hao. Although Ji Hao had some talent in him, it was impossible for him to break away from this situation.
Just like a newborn dragon, which had just crawled out from its egg, even if it was destined to dominate the entire world and become the king of all creatures, when it was newly born, a group of powerful flood dragons could still easily bully it.
Ji Hao glared at Zhu Rong Tianming. Apparently he already knew who was supporting Jiang Bo.
The seventh child of the Fire God, Zhu Rong, and the Seventh Prince who was named Tianming. Jiang Bo, and the Bi Fang Clan had truly found themselves a reliable, powerful backer!
Zhou Rong Tianming laughed relaxedly, threw a glance at Ying Zhu and the other servants, who were kneeling on the ground, with his blazing eyes, and said blandly, ’’These few useless things, letting a barbarian get into the center area of our country of God, so useless. Put them all into jail, administer the 'body burn by a raging fire' penalty.’’
Ying Zhu and the other servants instantly quivered when they heard Zhu Rong Tianming. Cold sweat gushed out from their foreheads, small sweat drops soon hung on the hair of their temples.
Tens of horned men laughed viscously, trod on fiery clouds and flew towards the group of servants, while thrusting their arms out, and attempting to grab Ying Zhu and the others.
Abruptly, a slight fiery light spot burst out from the air in front of Ji Hao. The slight and dim fiery light spot, which seemed like a candle light, started expanding and blazing within the blink of an eye, while transforming into a fiery column that directly reached to the sky. The fiery column then slowly pulled open outwards, forming a fiery gate.
A tall and muscular silhouette walked out from the fiery gate, looking at those horned men, and sniffed scornfully.
Zhu Rong Tianming, who had been proud and self-composed, controlling the entire situation, instantly quivered and hurriedly leapt up from the chair, politely bowing and saluting to the man who had walked out from the fiery gate, and said, ’’Big brother, didn't think that you had already finished your practice. You have locked yourself in the room and were concentrating on practice for the whole of three years, I assume that you must have improved a lot!’’
All of those horned men kneeled on the ground once this man had showed up, without even daring to raise their heads and look at him.
The fiery gate dissipated in the air, the man who had walked out from the gate, and was called 'Big brother' by Zhu Rong Tianming, turned around and laughed aloud.
’’Ji Hao, right? Hopefully, I pronounced your name right.’’
’’Man Man had broken into where I was practicing and told me about you. That was just the most crucial moment for me to break through to the next power-level, that girl...Haha, I finally meet you in person today!’’
’’I'm Man Man's big brother, we have the same mother. My name is Zhu Rong Tonggong you can just call me Big Brother Tonggong.’’
Zhu Rong Tianming's mouth corners began to twitch intensely.
Along with a cracking sound, all of the chains that were coiled around Ji Hao's body were shattered into ashes after slightly being flicked by Zhu Rong Tongong;in the meanwhile, all tens of horned man suddenly coughed mouthfuls of blood up and fell on the ground.
