Feng Wu moved swiftly in the snowstorm and headed directly for Zone 1 .
She had indeed split her tracks into three .
Little Phoenix, the cub, and she herself were running in three different directions .
Both pets had been smeared with her blood, making sure that Ten could smell her scent .
She was right —
The team leader stared at Ten . “Which one?”
Ten closed his eyes to heighten his senses, but shook his head in the end . “I can’t say for sure . ”
“Which direction is the most likely, then?”
“North . ”
“Good . ” The team leader narrowed his eyes and made a decision . “Two, Five, Ten, you three follow me to the north . ”
“Three, Six, Nine, to the south . ”
“Four, Seven, Eight, to the west . ”
Once the tasks were assigned, Blade moved out .
They ran into the snowstorm after their targets .
Ten grew more certain as they moved on . “The target is in this direction!”
The team leader was elated . Good .
The night was dark and the wind howled .
It was the darkest hour before dawn .
Standing on a mountain peak, Feng Wu could see the enemy that was chasing her . However, the blue dots representing magical beasts were still a long distance away .
At the current speed, she would be outrun in ten minutes .
A solemn look flickered in Feng Wu’s eyes . She couldn’t just stand around and wait for her doom . She had to save herself .
Zone 1 was right ahead and she spotted a dilapidated temple .
In this world of ice and snow, even a worn-down temple could bring hope .
Feng Wu entered the temple without hesitation .
The outside of the temple was in disrepair . This lone building in the middle of the snowfield threatened to fall down at the slightest breeze .
However, after she walked in, Feng Wu saw that someone had cleaned it up .
Not only was there a stove and firewood, she also found some rice and flour in a bucket .
If she was guessing right, this place had been used as a temporary hunting lodge .
Feng Wu smiled a little as she examined the makeshift kitchen .
Other candidates couldn’t bring many supplies in with them, but not her . For instance, all her potions were stored in her ring .
After taking a quick tour of the kitchen, Feng Wu left the temple .
But she didn’t go far . Instead, she lay in wait under a snowdrift a few steps away from the temple .
From that angle, Feng Wu could see the window, and she had already poked a hole in the window paper .
She had the best view .
She believed that those people would come after her very soon!
As expected, in less than ten minutes —
Footsteps came from the other side .
“Captain, there’s a house!” one of them cried out in pleasant surprise .
After a three-day chase in the snow without rest, even these capable hitmen wanted a roof over their heads and a fire to warm their food .
Ten frowned . “Five, it’s not time to eat yet . ”
Five was disgruntled . “Ten, can we at least continue the pursuit on a full stomach? We’ve been running for three days without rest and had to survive on rock-hard pancakes and snow . I’m not sure if we can survive for long if this goes on . ”
Ten sulked, but didn’t say another word .
The team leader asked Ten, “Anything new on the target?”
Ten frowned . “Her scent has grown fainter and it’s getting harder to track her . ”
The team leader looked up at the sky, then shook his head . “The snowstorm is getting heavier and we won’t be able to travel in these conditions . We still have four days left . Let’s take a break inside . ”
