"Run?" Gu Ruoyun calmly responded, "If you want to run, you can go right ahead. That is if you really think you can outrun these spiritual beasts."
Ye Nuo's knees gave way. He fell to the ground and his fair visage filled with regret.
"This is the end, this is definitely the end! I shouldn't have been so headstrong and rash and disobeyed my grandfather. Otherwise, I wouldn't have run into so many spiritual beasts. But I'm still so young and I have a long life left to live, I don't want to die yet..."
Gu Ruoyun did not respond. Her gaze fell upon two figures who were being chased by the herd of spiritual beasts.
She had thought that the situation was strange from the very beginning. Under normal circumstances, spiritual beasts would not appear in such a large group. Now that she has seen the two figures, she could assume that they've probably done something to enrage the spiritual beasts.
Even so, it's got nothing to do with me, she thought. Whatever it was, they should not have lured the spiritual beasts this way.
After all, spiritual beasts are not like humans. They would lose all sense of rationality in their anger and kill anyone who stood in their way. It's a good thing that almost all my wounds have healed prior to this. Otherwise, based on my previous condition, forget about this herd of Martial King-leveled spiritual beasts, I wouldn't even stand a chance against one spiritual beast...
As it turns out, the two figures chased by the spiritual beasts were a young man and a woman. The man noticed Gu Ruoyun who was standing not too far away. He yelled in astonishment, "Miss, run! Hurry!"
He probably had not expected anyone to appear in this area!
Gu Ruoyun did not move and stared calmly at the oncoming herd of spiritual beasts. Her blood-stained face was glazed with an icy chill.
As they ran towards Gu Ruoyun, the man was just about to advise her on running away with them when he was pulled away by the girl beside him who was dressed in pink robes.
"Senior brother, why bother yourself with this ugly thing? Let's go! If those spiritual beasts catch up to us, we'll be dead for sure."
The man in embroidered robes hesitated. After all, they were the ones who were responsible for leading the spiritual beasts this way. They can't possibly leave her alone like this.
Seeing how much concern her senior brother, whom she had admired since a young age, was showing this ugly hag, the woman in pink robes frowned unhappily and shot a glare at Gu Ruoyun, "Ugly sh*t, didn't you hear what my senior brother had just said? It's your own dumb luck for standing here. My senior brother has already given you a warning and yet you refuse to move. Don't blame us if you end up dead."
Gu Ruoyun had stayed silent from the very beginning. All she did was to stare at the oncoming spiritual beasts. Then, she finally made her move...
The girl in pink was just about to speak but instead, widened her eyes at the sight of what had happened next.
The figure in bloodied green robes swiftly shuttled through the herd of spiritual beasts. She raised the sword in her hand and cut off the heads of the spiritual beasts as she moved along the herd.
"I must be dreaming!"
The girl in pink rubbed her eyes vigorously as she stared in disbelief at the figure who was moving through the herd swiftly like the wind. She spoke in astonishment, "She has actually killed a low-level Martial King spiritual beast in an instant! If I'm not mistaken, this gross-looking hag should be around the rank of a high-level Martial King!"
That's right, only a person at the rank of a high-level Martial King would be able to move so swiftly.
The man in embroidered robes was also dumbstruck as if he could not believe that the woman he had dragged down with him would turn out to be so powerful. Such a young high-level Martial King was a rare sight in the Banished Lands.
Only Ye Nuo was excited at this point as he flushed red with delight, "I never thought that I would meet a bodyguard with such prowess. It would seem that this little Lord's life is assured. I had been so frightened scared just now."
