The noise from the 36 flying Cloud Bees made the wizards’ skulls numb. Everyone was staring at those terrifying creatures.
The three boats were getting closer and closer to the Cloud Bee swarms.
“Get ready!” Angele shouted.
The wizards with ranged weapons and spells started preparing to launch the attack.
Countless runes and energy particles appeared on the deck. Red light, green light, blue light, golden light, and silver light mixed together and flashed in the air.
At the same time, Hikari and several other wizards summoned storm spirits, water elementals, and elementals. There were about 30 of them and they lined up on the deck.
Angele raised the silver bow high in the air and nocked a black metal arrow on the bowstring, with its tip of the arrow was coated in dark flames.
The bowstring was pulled to full. Blue light dots flashed in front of Angele’s eyes.
“Fire!” he yelled.
*BAM BAM BAM*
Countless spells followed after Angele’s arrow and flew toward the Cloud Bees in the air.
The Cloud Bees did not seem to care about the spells. They increased their speed and just took the damage using their bodies.
Things were exploding everywhere in the air. The colorful lights illuminated on the wizards’ faces.
A wizard yelled in excitement.
He looked relieved as he thought that their spells were powerful enough to take down the bees.
“Don’t stop!” Angele raised his bow again.
However, the two dropping Cloud Bees started flying again and continued to charge toward the boat.
“The distance is too far! We’re not doing enough damage!” Hikari advised, “We need to wait till they get close!”
Angele bit his lips. The arrow he shot hit a Cloud Bee accurately, but it was then blocked by the energy barrier. The bee did not take any damage although the arrow’s tip was coated with Fire energy particles. Reyline’s special bow increased the speed of the arrow, and Angele thought the strike would deal at least 50 degrees of damage but it did not even penetrate the shield due to the bee’s talent skill.
The wizards were getting nervous after realizing that none of their spells worked.
Some wizards already started to prepare to escape. Several of them used special stealth techniques, Angele also saw people drinking potions and taking out rare enchanted items from their pouches. They would do anything to stay alive.
Two wizards were still setting up red and white magic circles under their feet as they had not yet given up.
Invisible energy waves spread to the air, covering the area around.
A Cloud Bee in the front headbutted the barrier with great momentum.
White distorted energy waves from the defensive matrix blocked the bee’s strike.
The rest of the bees arrived at the barrier as well but the magic circles from the wizards did nothing to them.
*BAM BAM BAM*
The white energy barrier started cracking after being hit so many times by the bees.
Angele could see the energy stored in the defensive matrix depleting sharply through the amulet.
The silver glow covering the amulet was fading away.
He noticed that the Cloud Bees would hit the barrier using their stingers each time they approached the boat.
Those stingers were the reason why the defensive matrix was consuming so much energy.
“Get ready! The shield is breaking!” he turned around and shouted.
Angele dropped the bow to the floor and drew the scimitar, charging forward.
At that moment, three Cloud Bees penetrated the energy shield and flew toward Angele.
Two strange runes flashed in Angele’s eyes. He was blown away by the impact and flew to the railings.
He hit the railings hard and spat out some blood. Angele struggled and felt dizzy.
“F*cking hell! 11 Strength is no joke. The difference is huge!” Angele supported himself with the scimitar and saw a dead Cloud Bee dropped to the deck.
The bee’s left wing was petrified and the energy shield beside the wing was cracked open. Angele seized this opportunity to successfully sliced its head off.
The bee’s dead body was still trembling on the floor and it made some loud noise with the petrified wing.
Angele stood up.
Suddenly, he heard someone grunting in the front.
He turned to the right and saw a wizard’s chest being penetrated by a long black stinger. It seemed that the wizard was doing the ritual to turn his body into their energy form. However, the frost from the stinger was relentlessly spreading around the man’s body, and he was having a hard time to transform himself into pure energy.
The wizard struggled and released some green gas but died before the process was completed.
Everything happened so fast that Angele could not do anything for the man.
He heard people shouting and roaring. All the Cloud Bees went through the crack and started attacking the boat. They flew around in the sky and there were wizards being killed every minute.
Ten minutes later, there were only about ten wizards that were still alive. Dead bodies lay on the surface of the deck but only two Cloud Bees were killed.
Angele killed one, and Baron and the man in a black robe killed another one together.
The noise made by the bees’ wings echoed in the air.
Angele was fighting with two Cloud Bees, attacking him from both sides. He was surprised at how fast those terrifying creatures could move.
A distorted energy wave was released from his left hand.
Angele rolled forward quickly.
The Cloud Bees’ stingers missed the target and hit the floor. It was close.
Angele used petrification again as he turned around.
The bee’s energy barrier failed to stop the cursed scimitar and Angele successfully hit the bee’s head.
Angele was knocked away by the other bee right after he made the first hit. He rolled on the deck for several times to reduce the damage.
‘Strength increased, Agility increased, Stamina increased…Injured,’ Zero quickly reported.
He activated the buff of the cursed scimitar. He could feel the power being transferred into his body. Angele’s heart was pumping fast and his head was clear.
Angele roared and stood up. Four more Cloud Bees charged toward him and shot two stingers.
He heard the noise and leaned to the left immediately.
However, his right arm was still hit by one of the stingers and he almost dropped the scimitar.
Angele’s right arm was paralyzed.
“Damn it!” He raised his left hand and released the illusion energy wave again.
One of the Cloud Bees was impacted by the wave and it smashed onto the deck. Its force was so strong that it created a small hole on the floor.
“Now! Go down to the cabin!” Angele yelled and ran to the stairs.
He glanced around. There were only seven or eight people left on the deck. The bodies on the floor were all covered in white frost.
They were doing their utmost to survive the onslaught.
Angele knew that if his body was not protected by the metal barrier, he would already be killed by the bees. Their fighting capability was much higher than what he had expected.
However, the strong metal barrier failed to block the bee’s stinger. The tip of the stinger was so sharp, and the damage done by the stingers was in a completely different league.
Angele was running at full speed but Zero warned him about the danger coming from behind.
The Cloud Bees were still going after him.
He had no time to think. Angele rolled forward, then drew the silver longsword and slashed toward behind him.
He could feel that the silver sword penetrated something and the noise the weapon made sounded like wood being sawed.
A large creature jumped onto Angele’s back and hit his shoulders several times.
Angele struggled for a while, but he could no longer handle the pressure as he fell to the ground.
“F*cking bee!” Angele could not even turn his head around as there was an enormous creature on his back.
The bee’s forelegs were moving around his neck and Angele could see the hard shell under its white hair.
The bee stank, its body smelling like pee mixed with feces.
A drop of green sticky fluid hit the floor. It was right in front of Angele’s face.
Angele’s body was partially paralyzed by the bee’s poison. More and more strange fluids dripped down the deck.
Several seconds later, the fluid created a small pool in front of Angele’s face. He asked Zero to check the fluid right away. Angele narrowed his eyes. He struggled and dipped his left hand into the pool quickly.
He heard people grunting as he applied the fluid to the wound on his right arm.
