The woman in red's smile was extremely poisonous. Her eyes were like those of a venomous snake's, filled with viciousness and cruelty. It was a very unsettling sight.
"You want to eat me?" the little Vermillion Bird smiled as she asked. Her large, sparkly eyes displayed an innocent light. However, the words she spoke after that were extremely cruel, "Then I shall make you understand who shall become a meal for someone else! Ling'er, annihilate these humans!"
The little Vermillion Bird waved her tender little hand and issued her command mercilessly!
One would be mistaken to think that the little Vermillion Bird was an innocent and kind little girl simply because she looks like a young child. Even though she was very naive and can be easily misled by others, she was not a kind and gentle person!
In the spiritual beasts' world, the laws of the jungle were clearly abided by all. How could the little Vermillion Bird, who had grown up under such circumstances, have a merciful heart?
In her heart, there will only ever be two kinds of people!
One was a comrade that she would give her life to protect, the other... Was her enemy!
As soon as the little Vermillion Bird had given the order, the Firebird roared loudly before its body turned into a ball of flames and charged swiftly towards the woman in red. In that instant, the flames on its body burned even brighter and fiercer, casting a red hue in the entire sky.
"Third Sister, look out!"
The middle-aged man's expression changed drastically as he hurriedly rushed to pull the woman in red to his side. He then charged headlong to meet the great Firebird. The machete in his hand slashed sharply with a powerful force that seems as if it could slice the sky into two!
A muffled noise sounded from the void.
The Snow Jade Bandits, who had been previously frightened by the Firebird's instant killing power and had not even dared to look at the fight, looked absolutely joyful when they heard that noise. They then quickly turned their gaze towards the flaming red sky.
To them, that muffled noise was clearly the sound of their Great Leader's machete piercing through the Firebird's brain! So what if this Firebird had been very powerful, has it not just fallen by the hand of their leader?
However, when they saw the scene unfold in the void, everyone was stunned.
All they could see was an enormous claw which had pierced through their Great Leader's chest. Fresh blood had completely drenched his mink fur waistcoat red. More blood continued to gush out and slowly dripped down from the sky as if it was raining blood.
The middle-aged man looked at his chest and then looked at the huge Firebird. He tried to speak but could only feel a wave of fatigue take over his being. His body seemed to lose all its strength suddenly and crumpled down from the sky...
The man with the scar and the woman in red flew into a rage instantly at this sight and screamed in agony.
The middle-aged man's body slammed heavily on the ground. Blood had long dyed the ground beneath the man crimson. He opened and closed his mouth several times as he turned to face the two who were rushing towards him. He then seemed to muster all of his strength to say a single word to the maddened pair.
That one word took his last bit of strength. He stared reluctantly at the Snow Jade Bandits which he had single-handedly established before he slowly closed his eyes and lay lifeless in the pool of blood.
The woman in red's eyes turned bloodshot. She let out a heartbreaking shriek before turning her bloodshot eyes towards the little Vermilion Bird and charged at her like a maniac.
"I'm going to kill you and avenge my Big Brother!"
The little Vermillion Bird stirred. She certainly never expected to find out that these humans were not thoroughly evil! At least they displayed a sufficient amount of emotion towards their peers. After all, if this had been anyone else, how could they possibly think of revenge after witnessing the fire spiritual beast's power?

They do not even have time to run away!
Besides, before their Great Leader had died, he had warned his friends to run!
Still, the little Vermillion Bird has never had felt any mercy and she would never spare anyone who has attacked her.
She returned to her senses at this thought and glared coldly at the woman in red who was rushing towards her. The corners of her lips then curled into a cruel smile.
"Third Leader, kill this little sl*t and avenge our Great Leader!"
"That's right! Kill her! Only with her death can the Great Leader be at peace!"
The Snow Jade Bandits were mourning the Great Leader's death. Their eyes sparkled when they saw the woman in red's actions. From what they could tell, no matter how powerful the fire spiritual beast may be, the little girl who looks to be around five years of age would not have much power to retaliate! By then, the Snow Jade Bandits would be the ones to dictate who lives or dies!
Actually, they were not doing this only to avenge their Great Leader!
It was to survive!
The fire spiritual beast would have to be very powerful to be able to kill their Great Leader in one blow. How many of the bandits would be able to escape if it were to hunt them down? However, if they could kidnap this little girl, the outcome would be different!
By using the little girl as a means to threaten it, the Snow Jade Bandits would be able to avoid the danger today!
Obviously, the woman in red had the same idea! She would not risk her life solely for the sake of the Great Leader! Instead, for the chance of survival, she would boldly risk her life. She no longer cared too much now.
Her cries for avenging the Great Leader was only a reason that she had given herself.
"Quick, we need to protect the little lady!"
How could the people of Cloudy Wind City fail to notice the Snow Jade Bandits' scheme?
Once the woman in red captures the little Vermillion Bird, they would not stand any chance of running the Snow Jade Bandits to ground! By then, the bandits would attack once again and all that awaits the citizens of Cloudy Wind City was a single bout of ransacking!
Hence, the soldiers forgot about their own safety and rushed to protect the little Vermillion Bird without even waiting for the governor's order.
However, based on their level of power, how could these people withstand the woman in red who was a Martial Supreme? The woman in red soon arrived in front of the little Vermillion Bird. She then stretched out her hand and attempted to grab the little girl's shoulder.
"Little sl*t. Today, for the sake of avenging my Big Brother and to ensure our smooth escape from the Cloudy Wind City, we have no choice but to take you with us!"
A hint of viciousness flashed across the woman in red's lovely eyes. Her bloodshot eyes also contained a sense of madness as a sneer hung on her face.
The little Vermillion Bird shook her head in disappointment.
She had really thought that this woman was truly charging towards her for the sake of avenging the death of their Great Leader. Instead, she only wanted to use her as a means to escape the Cloudy Wind City.
As it turns out, not every human would willingly sacrifice themselves for the sake of their friends!
"You want to take me with you? I'm afraid you don't have that kind of power."
The little Vermillion Bird lifted her eyes which were now clouded with flames and laughed softly.
A wave of energy then slammed onto the woman in red's chest. It caused the woman in red's body which had been high up in the sky to fall towards the ground as if she had been crushed by a rock. She felt as if her chest had been blocked and gasped for breath.
She raised her pretty eyes in astonishment and stared in shock at the cute and tender face before her.
