Chapter 998: Gu Ruoyun? Imposter! (6)

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation


Xia Linyu laughed icily as he slowly stood up in front of the bonfire. His delicate features no longer displayed his previously shy and youthful expression, it has now been replaced by a twinge of frost.

"Just because you've never encountered a herd of spiritual beasts doesn't mean that they don't exist," he said as he looked Uncle Ying. His limpid eyes filled with disdain as he continued, "If you have the time to accuse and suspect others, why not use it to think of ways to retaliate against these spiritual beasts instead?"

He knows that Gu Ruoyun has never been bothered by the whispers of others but that does not mean that he could ignore it.

He could endure any form of doubts but he could never tolerate others provoking Gu Ruoyun over and over again!

"You..." Uncle Ying's face was ashen as he spoke. He clenched his fist until a gurgling sound could be heard.

Just as he was about to make his accusations again, Ye Ying's voice chimed in, "I believe that he's right. Our time shouldn't be spent by pushing the blame onto others. Instead, we should all think of ways to get ourselves out of this situation."

When he heard this, Uncle Ying swallowed the words in his mouth and glared furiously at Gu Ruoyun and her brother before he turned away.

He would never let anyone harm the World Destruction Mercenaries!

If the Leader refuses to listen to me, I'll use other means to prove that I'm right.


The herd of spiritual beasts roared loudly as they charged towards them. The spiritual beasts soon pounced fiercely towards the group.

"They are Martial Honor spiritual beasts. Heavens, these spiritual beasts are all Martial Honors!"

"Furthermore, there are also a few of them with unknown yet powerful auras. Unless my guess is wrong, those have already reached the rank of Martial Supremes!"

At this moment, the mercenaries could finally sense the spiritual beasts' unmasked auras. Their faces drained of color as they stared fearfully at the spiritual beasts charging towards them!

Ye Ying's handsome features became even more severe. After a long pause, he took a deep breath and spoke with determination, "Everyone, listen to my order. I want all of you to draw your weapons and prepare for battle!"

"Yes, Leader!"

The World Destruction Mercenaries immediately drew their weapons, prepared to fight the spiritual beasts to the death.

However, a calm voice chimed in at this moment and resounded very clearly in every ear under the night sky's chaotic noise.

"If all of you don't wish to die, don't retaliate!"


Uncle Ying scoffed coldly and sent Gu Ruoyun an icy glare, "Has your fox's tail finally showed itself? Are you asking us not to retaliate? Isn't that just waiting for us to send ourselves to our deaths? Do you really think that we're that stupid?"

His laughter was full of disdain and his eyes were filled with contempt.

Ye Ying glanced at Gu Ruoyun and muttered to himself for a while. He then asked, "Are you certain that if we don't fight, we'll survive this?"

There were too many of these spiritual beasts. In addition, all of them were very powerful. Even if all the mercenaries were to rush towards them, their chances of survival were slim.

"If you trust me, then do as I say," said Gu Ruoyun. She did not say much else as she raised her clear and cold eyes and fixed them upon Ye Ying.

As he watched the spiritual beasts draw closer and closer, Ye Ying fell silent once again. Finally, he lifted his handsome face, waved his hands and ordered, "Put your weapons away. We will not fight."


"That's an order!"

Ye Ying's expression sank as he barked the order out in a sharp voice.

Chapter 999: Gu Ruoyun? Imposter! (7)

There were many of them who did not agree with that order. However, they put their weapons away and stared worriedly at the fearsome spiritual beasts which were charging towards them.

"Leader, it seems that you've truly been possessed by a ghost."

Uncle Ying laughed bitterly and shook his head in disappointment, "I don't know what kind of bewitching elixir this woman has administered to you which has made you trust her so blindly. You would even use the mercenaries as a gambling chip! However, since this is your order, we have no choice but to obey."


Uncle Ying then threw the knife in his hand to the ground and lamented in agony, "I only hope that you don't regret your decision, Leader!"

Ye Ying gently pursed his lips. Regardless of how calm he looked, his clenched fist betrayed his true feelings!

Those spiritual beasts were drawing closer and closer to them. At the same time, he clenched his fist tighter and tighter.

However, he knew that he had no other way.

If they stepped out to fight, they would surely die!

Nevertheless, if it all goes according to Gu Ruoyun's words, perhaps they have a sliver of hope.


"Roar, roar, roar!"

A huge amount of spiritual beasts came charging towards them and their roaring shook the land. A few other spiritual beasts hovered in the sky as they all headed towards the same direction. 

The World Destruction Mercenaries could not help but shrink away from the sight. Even though they have experienced countless battles, they could not help but feel uncertainty and their legs were almost about to give way. Some were even shaking with fear.

"This is it! We're finished! The spiritual beasts are right in front of us now!"

"Besides, these spiritual beasts are so fearsome that there's a high chance that we will become their meal tonight!"

"However, even if we retaliate, we might not be able to defeat them anyway. It now looks like though we've been able to successfully escape from the clutches of the Heavenly Wolf Mercenaries, we will still ultimately lose our lives in the Nemesis Forest."

The spiritual beasts at the forefront of the herd have arrived in front of the World Destruction Mercenaries. Those who were a little less courageous immediately shut their eyes, terrified of witnessing the bloodbath! However, they felt no pain. All they could feel was the piercing of a wild wind and nothing else.

Uncle Ying had initially decided to follow his Leader's orders. However, once the spiritual beasts have arrived in front of him, he had regretted his decision. He was aware that his chances of victory were extremely slim if he fought against these spiritual beasts but, regardless, he needed to give it a try!

For the World Destruction Mercenaries' glory!

Just as he bent down to pick up his large knife, he saw the fearsome spiritual beasts charging right past him. They kicked up a cloud of dust and did not even stop for a moment, as if enticed by some sort of treasure in front of them!

Uncle Ying was in shock. His finger paused at the hilt of his knife as he stared in astonishment at the herd of spiritual beasts. His brain was unable to comprehend the situation.

"What's the meaning of this? These spiritual beasts aren't here because of us?"

Whoosh, whoosh, whoosh!

In that instant, all eyes turned to look at Gu Ruoyun's cool and calm features. The shock in their eyes perfectly described their questions.

"Didn't you hear it?" Gu Ruoyun said as she shrugged her shoulders and smiled calmly, "A while ago, I had heard a soft growling sound from not too far ahead. That noise had called out to these spiritual beasts! They are merely on their way to meet it."

This also means that there was an even more powerful spiritual beast up ahead. It had issued a command and summoned the spiritual beasts at the rank of Martial Honors and above from the Nemesis Forest towards it.

Chapter 1000: Gu Ruoyun? Imposter! (8)

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation  Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

If my guess is correct, that spiritual beast further ahead of us is the ruling beast who guards the exit of Nemesis Forest!

Of course, what Gu Ruoyun did not know was that she had been able to pick up on the sound because she was the Ancient Divine Pagoda's Master! Hence, her hearing abilities surpassed that of an average person. Similarly speaking, the World Destruction Mercenaries had not heard the ruling beast's growl at all.

A hint of embarrassment appeared on Uncle Ying's face. He had assumed Gu Ruoyun had hatched some sort of wicked plan and had somehow caused the spiritual beasts' appearance all for the sake of attacking them. However, he never expected it to turn out that the spiritual beasts had not appeared because of them!

However, that does not mean that he believes Gu Ruoyun had appeared with no ulterior motives!

"If my guess is right, the place that we're headed to is over there."

Ye Ying was clearly thinking this over even more.

Upon hearing Gu Ruoyun's explanation, he had fallen silent and took a while before returning to his senses. He then said with a serious look on his face, "Still, we don't know what has happened over there which had caused those spiritual beasts to surge over!"

Gu Ruoyun mulled it over for a moment before she slowly replied, "You've mentioned before that you a road that leads out of the Nemesis Forest but a mid-level Martial Supreme spiritual beast guards the way so you had been unable to use that route! However, I now think that the spiritual beast isn't a mid-level Martial Supreme but a high-level Martial Supreme instead!"


Hearing this, the crowd could not help but gasp.

Amongst all of them, only their Leader was the most powerful and has now only reached the rank of a low-level Martial Supreme! However, with the concepts of both mid-level and low-level Martial Supremes, even with the addition of the other mercenaries, they could not possibly overcome a mid-level Martial Supreme!

However, they never expected the mid-level Martial Supreme spiritual beast to actually turn out to be a high-level Martial Supreme!

In that sense, defeating that spiritual beast would be even more difficult now!

Ye Ying's expression was an extremely ugly sight to behold. He turned towards Gu Ruoyun and asked, "You're certain that the spiritual beast is already at the rank of high-level Martial Supreme?"

"I'm not too sure."

Gu Ruoyun shook her head as she calmly replied.

When he heard this, Ye Ying had initially heaved a sigh of relief. However, the next part of Gu Ruoyun's statement drained his handsome face of color and he now looked as pale as a ghost.

"For hundreds of spiritual beasts to make such a pilgrimage, only a Holy Beast's breakthrough would cause a situation like this! Therefore, I myself am not too certain at the moment whether it is a high-level Martial Supreme or it has broken through to the state of a Holy Beast!"

"A Holy Beast? How can this be?"

Uncle Ying did not wait for Ye Ying to respond and hurriedly barged into the conversation. Obviously, he does not have a very pretty look on his face. He gritted his teeth and said, "It has broken through to become a Holy Beast? How could we possibly have come face to face with such a thing? I don't believe it! Quit deluding the crowd with your lies! This spiritual beast is the beast king of Nemesis Forest. Summoning the other spiritual beasts is to be expected. That does not mean that it has broken through to the state of a Holy Beast!"

Gu Ruoyun smiled faintly and said nothing else.

She then turned her gaze to look at a spot in the sky not too far away from them as the corners of her lips curled into an angle.

"Regardless of the state of its breakthrough, I still need to go there and rush ahead! Besides, a newly minted Holy Beast's aura is unstable at the initial state and that is also an opportunity for us!" Gu Ruoyun's eyes held a clear and cold light as she spoke with a calm air.

The reason why Gu Ruoyun was so confident was entirely due to the fact that she holds a trump card in her hand — the Vermillion Bird!

Under normal circumstances, she would have exposed the Vermillion Bird's presence so willingly but at this point in time, if they had no other choice, she will have to send the Vermillion Bird into the attack.
