Chapter 1001: The Trembling Holy Beast (1)

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

"Miss Gu, should we continue moving forward, or find another way out?"

Ye Ying's brows furrowed closely together. He took a deep breath and asked the question with a worried look on his face.

After all, that was the mythical holy beast! Not just any Tom, Dick, or Harry! Even if they all attacked together, they were no bigger than the gaps between its teeth! So, for the first time, Ye Ying felt the urge to retreat.

Gu Ruoyun mildly inclined her head and turned her gaze towards the direction of the deep growl. She replied in a lukewarm voice, "If you wish to leave, I won't stop you. It's only that, I don't have time to stay on here any longer. So, Yu'er, let's go."


Xia Linyu smiled lightly and followed closely behind Gu Ruoyun.

Gu Lan opened her mouth, in an attempt to speak. However, when she saw the young man's delicate and slim figure against the gentle breeze, she felt a surge of heat at the tip of her nose, especially at the sight of his bare sleeve. Her heart throbbed.


Her voice was pleading, and her large, vivid eyes turned towards Ye Ying, "We..."

"Lan'er, have you taking a liking to that kid?" Uncle Ying glared impatiently at Lan'er and scoffed, "You know that a powerful holy beast resides in that area! If our World Destruction Mercenaries follows her there, we'd most certainly be hit with severe injuries and might even lose the entire army!"

Gu Lan went into a daze. She shook her head and said, "I only pity him... Such a young and beautiful youth, he should be enjoying his wonderful years and yet, he's crippled. Although this young man is always smiling, I know that he must feel very bitter within himself. Besides, if I were in his place, and I lost an arm, I'd much rather die."

To a cultivator, an arm was similar to their power. Without power, was there any more reason to live?

Yet he has endured it all with determination.

Gu Lan could tell, that the reason why he was determined to continue living, was only for the sake of the woman by his side!

"Leader, we've already been here for almost a month and food will run out soon. The Nemesis Forest is crawling with spiritual beasts but it's difficult for us to hunt them down. At that time, how much longer can we endure without the support of food?"

Gu Lan's large, vivid eyes blinked. Her usual sweet smile disappeared from her lovable face, replaced by a sense of determination.

"So, why don't we give it everything we've got? Besides, didn't that spiritual beast only just achieved its breakthrough? When a spiritual beast achieves its breakthrough, it cannot fight back. Otherwise, it'll have no choice but to give up on the chance for this breakthrough. So, we can take this opportunity and slip right past it! As long as we use our time wisely, we can leave this place!"

Ye Ying became momentarily silent. Then, he lifted his handsome face, as if he had made up his mind, "Lan'er is right, our responsibility is to leave Nemesis Forest, not to fight spiritual beasts! However, there is one aspect that we must pay attention to. All the powerful spiritual beasts of Nemesis Forest have gone on a pilgrimage to the holy beast. Even if we do not need to fight the holy beast, it would be difficult to go up against these spiritual beasts."

Then, he paused and continued. "However, we must give it a try. You must all be on alert. Do not be blinded by the battle, immediately carve a bloody way out and run!"

Uncle Ying sighed and shook his head in exasperation.

Chapter 1002: The Trembling Holy Beast (2)

The Leader really is acting with too much haste.

Then again, he didn't have any other way! Once this fellow has made up his mind, no one can change it! However, if you asked him to leave the World Destruction Mercenaries and live out an ignoble existence, he could not do it either.

"Leader, we will support you in whatever decisions you make. We only hope that you'd put the mercenaries' needs into consideration as well! I do not wish for my comrades, some whom I've known for many years to lose their lives in a commanding mistake."

This was the last piece of advice that he could give him.

Ye Ying did not reply. Except, his grey eyes held a sense of determination. After a long pause, he raised his hand, placed it up high before putting it down. "Hear my order, World Destruction Mercenaries, we will continue on our journey! This day is our chance to leave this Nemesis Forest!"

Nemesis Forest — Under the scorching heat of the setting sun. 

Xia Linyu seemed to sense the footsteps coming from behind him, and gently raised his brow, "Sister, I think they're following us."

Hearing this, Gu Ruoyun was also stunned. She never thought that Ye Ying would have the guts to make such a decision! However, it was very obvious that this decision was no mistake.

"Let's not concern ourselves with them for now. We'll be reaching the beast king's lair soon. Yu'er, when that time comes, you stay away for a bit. Leave the beast king to me."

Gu Ruoyun smiled mildly. Her gaze fixed upon the enormous power that came from ahead the entire time. Her brows wrinkled. As they drew deeper and deeper, the power she sensed grew even greater.

That power was so strong that it was suffocating.

Xia Linyu turned slightly pale. Just as he felt that he could no longer take it, a gentle hand clasped tightly around his hand.

Threads of gentle spiritual energy entered his body through the palm of his hand, which also alleviated the discomfort in his body. When he was finally able to breathe again, he turned towards Gu Ruoyun and flashed a sunny smile.

"Thank you, sister."

"Don't talk. Let's continue walking."

Gu Ruoyun's expression grew even more severe. If she did not have the Vermillion Bird on hand, she would not have any way of defeating this spiritual beast.

At that moment, she personally did not have enough power!

"Roar!" A loud roar was heard, and the horizon trembled. 

Even the mountain range beneath Gu Ruoyun's feet trembled.

The roar was mixed with agony and joy, as if it needed to let it all out as fiercely as possible.

This was the foreshadowing of a holy beast's breakthrough!

"Watch out!"

Gu Ruoyun's eyes sharpened, and she quickly pulled Xia Linyu behind her.

It was also at this moment that countless spiritual beasts charged out from within the forest ahead. Their fangs were bared and their claws brandished as they charged toward Gu Ruoyun and the rest! At the sight of such fearsome spiritual beasts, the World Destruction Mercenaries were so frightened that their legs nearly gave way.

"Gu... Miss Gu. What do these spiritual beasts want this time?"

A mercenary asked as he trembled. Despite having encountered numerous battles, they've never been faced with anything like this before!

Gu Ruoyun shrugged her shoulders, "This time, they're aiming at us! So you've better put up your defenses, quickly."

Spiritual beasts have keen senses. They could sense them from the moment the group had set foot into this lair. They would never allow for anyone to disturb the beast king during the crucial moment of his breakthrough.


Hearing this, the mercenaries quickly drew their weapons. However, when faced with such fearsome spiritual beasts, a human's power would decrease by an obvious degree. Under the attack of spiritual beasts, they would not even have the ability to protect themselves.

Chapter 1003: The Trembling Holy Beast (3)

"I've told you, Leader, that if we do choose this route, we would drag the whole army down with us! What bright ideas you've all got, taking advantage of the holy beast during the crux of its breakthrough to slip away. However, did you ever wonder if the spiritual beasts of Nemesis Forest would let us pass?"

Uncle Ying blocked an eagle's talons with his sword, his expression filled with anxiety. He could not help but blame Ye Ying.

Ye Ying remained silent the entire time, yet his expression sunk simultaneously along with the increasing amount of spiritual beasts.

His powers were of the highest level among everyone present, he had already reached the rank of a low-level Martial Supreme! Hence, he was highly competent in facing these spiritual beasts! However, there was no lack of weak cultivators among his band of mercenaries. They were no match for the spiritual beasts.

Besides, he would be met with a moment of depletion in spiritual energy. When that time comes, that would signal their death!


Ye Ying lifted his head towards the flash of green robes against the gentle wind and hope flashed in his eyes.

Even he himself did not know why he would place all of his hopes onto this woman.

Amidst the gentle breeze, the flash of a green robe shuttled among the spiritual beasts. When she raised her sword, brains would spill out and fall to the ground, blood splattering everywhere.

Gu Ruoyun did not summon any of her spiritual beasts to battle! This was because it was her first time facing so many enemies in battle, ever since she had broken through to the rank of Martial Supreme! How could she give up on such a great opportunity to increase her power?

However, some spiritual beasts were aware that they were no match for Gu Ruoyun, so they attempted to attack Xia Linyu who was next to her.

However, even spiritual beasts who were able to make schemes like this had their heads lopped off by Gu Ruoyun's sword before they could even get anywhere near Xia Linyu! Otherwise, their bodies would be sliced into two.

"This... This..."

The mercenaries gradually felt dumbfounded at the sight of this.

Our Leader is considered to be rather powerful now, right? However, even our Leader could not possibly be able to kill such powerful spiritual beasts so easily! Besides, there were also a few Martial Supremes among them!

Yet this woman... Not only was she able to kill her opponent instantly, she was able to take care of the crippled young man by her side as well.

To do two things at once, how did she manage that?

Uncle Ying's expression changed from his initial anger to one of shock. In the end, his entire face was filled with embarrassment.

From the beginning, he had thought that Gu Ruoyun held unlawful intentions towards them, and tried to lure the World Destruction Mercenaries to this place so that the spiritual beasts of Nemesis Forest could take care of them. Yet the thought of how powerful this young woman actually was never crossed his mind.

She had such outstanding ability, so why would she need to waste her efforts in luring them to the beast king? Wouldn't it have been easier to just handle it on her own? 1

It was also at this very moment when Uncle Ying finally believed that Gu Ruoyun was truly not a spy from the Heavenly Wolf Mercenaries! She actually happened to arrive in Nemesis Forest by coincidence and happened to bump into them...


Suddenly, Gu Ruoyun raised her longsword, a sharp wind from the sword's blade pierced across the air and charged straight towards Uncle Ying.

Uncle Ying went into a momentary daze, unable to comprehend what was going on. However, he heard a thump right next to him and saw a silver wolf inches away from him, its claw dangerously close to slashing his neck.

However, the energy from Gu Ruoyun's sword happened to hit the silver wolf's claw. Instantly, a wolf's claw dropped, and fresh blood came splattering out into all directions, staining his robes in a blood-red hue.

Uncle Ying's body stiffened. The shame on his face grew even thicker, and he felt as if a lump was in his throat. He could not speak at all.

She had been paying close attention to the mercenaries' situation, disregarded their previous enmity, and saved his life! If it were not for her, perhaps he would have been dead by the silver wolf's sharp claw.

Yet he had questioned her so much in the past...
