Chapter 74: Battling the Fire Wolves Pack
It was not only Fatty Qu but also Bei Gong Tang and the gang who had been scared witless by the pack of beasts that were charging towards them.
As the pack of beasts drew nearer, Sima You Yue and gang noticed a person running right at the front of the pack.
The call of the wolf pack was filled with a ferocity that caused that person to break out into a cold sweat, however, seeing Sima You Yue and the gang in front of him, he grit his teeth and charged straight at them.
When Sima You Yue saw that person run towards their direction, she immediately reacted and gave a yell as she started running. She pulled Bei Gong Tang, who was standing beside her and they ran towards the back.
Hearing her yell, Wei Zi Qi and the rest came back to their senses and broke into a run without even being able to pack their things.
“Help… the friend in front, help me…” That person called out when he saw that Sima You Yue and the rest were running.
“Damn, save yourself!” Sima You Yue scolded, pulling Bei Gong Tang as they increased their pace.
However, the strength in the legs of these five people were limited. How were they to outrun the Fire Wolves? Seeing the Spirit Beasts draw closer along with that black clothed man, Fatty Qu complained, “Damn it, how can this guy run so fast!”
The one was had been chased by those Fire Wolves caught up very quickly. Seeing the tiny wolf cub in his hands, Sima You Yue finally understood why this pack of wolves had chased them all over the mountain.
“You idiot, what are you holding the wolf cub for? Quickly give it back!”
It appeared as if the person only regained his senses when Sima You Yue said it as he lowered his head to look at the tiny wolf cub in his embrace. He threw the wolf cub to Fatty Qu who was beside him before running towards another direction.
“Damn it, is this jerk trying to kill someone!” Fatty Qu subconsciously caught the wolf cub but by the time he understood what was happening, that person had already run off without a trace.
Sima You Yue watched as that person ran so quickly that he completely disappeared from sight and her eyes flashed with suspicion.
“Fatty Qu, what are you still hugging that wolf cub for! Quickly throw it away!” Wei Zi Qi yelled.
Fatty Qu hurriedly threw the wolf cub, however, except for one or two who had went over to where the cub was, the rest of the pack still chased them relentlessly.
“I can’t run anymore, looks like I can only battle it out with them!” Ouyang Fei looked at the Wolf Pack that was still chasing them relentlessly, and took out his weapons, turning to face the Wolf Pack, ready to kill.
The rest of them also understood that this Wolf Pack had already marked them. No matter how far they ran, they would not let them off. They had also run for such a long time, their physical stamina would not last. If they waited until it was all depleted, the Wolf Pack would be able to kill them all easily.
Sima You Yue was not too worried about the Wolf Pack behind them. Either one of little Roar or Ya Guang’s appearance would be able to scare them off, however, she had no plans to do so.
“Let’s just do it!” Wei Zi Qi also stopped running as he called out his own contracted Spirit Beast and was ready to fight the Fire Wolves.
“This Lord won’t run anyway, damn it!” Fatty Q u also called out his own Spirit Beast and axe, hurling it at the Fire Wolves.
Bei Gong Tang did not call out her own Spirit Beast. She only stopped running and only threw the condensed ball of Spiritual Qi in her hands t
owards the Fire Wolves.
Sima You Yue surveyed the situation for a bit. Ouyang Fei’s beast was just a ninth ranked Clouded Leopard. It appeared to be breaking into the ranks of a Saint Ranked Spirit Beast.
Fatty Qu’s beast was just a seventh ranked Charm Fox. That fox’s build was much smaller that the Fire Wolves but it was not weaker in combat ability at all.
The rank of Wei Zi Qi’s Spirit Beast was not as high as Ouyang Fei’s, however, it was a very rare Fire Lizard. With just one sweep of its tail, an entire bunch of Fire Wolves were sent flying.
Sima You Yue took out her dagger, Ling Long, and leapt in front of a Fire Wolf. While it was pouncing over, she quickly stabbed the dagger straight into the space in between it’s eyebrows. She had already pulled the dagger out before it had any chance to react.
Ouyang Fei and the others never expected that Sima You Yue would be able to kill a wolf so quickly and stared in shock.
“The space between the eyebrows and three inches below their neck is the Flame Wolves’ most vulnerable spot. It’s the most efficient to target those two areas.”
“How did you know?” Although it was not the best time for it, Fatty Qu still asked.
“It was mentioned before during class.” Sima You Yue said.
It was at this point that everyone realised they had the vague impression that the teacher had talked about this before when he was explaining about the Spirit Beasts in Pu Luo Mountain Range. However, everyone did not pay attention. If it wasn’t for Sima You Yue pointing it out, they would never have remembered that they had a class on it.
“You have to be quick or else you will be hurt by the pack of wolves.” Ouyang Fei cautioned.
“Ouyang Fei and Bei Gong Tang have quite a bit of battle experience, the three of us will take charge of attacking those closest to us. Zi Qi and Fatty Qu, you two will have to focus on using Spiritual Qi to attack.” Sima You Yue said, “We function as a team now, if we want to live through this, we have to work together to the best of our ability.”
Everyone looked at the Wolf Pack encircling them and nodded, showing their acceptance of what she said.
“Zi Qi, Fatty Qu, we will be outside and you two will be in the centre. Pump out Spiritual Qi as fast as you can. If any of us are taken down, it is possible that you two will be in danger.” Ouyang Fei warned.
“You all can relax.” Fatty Qu assured.
Sima You Yue glanced at Fatty Qu and Wei Zi Qi, and said very earnestly, “In the past, I rarely showed my back to others because it was a very dangerous thing. Today, the three of us entrust our backs to you, you guys have to defend it well!”
When Wei Zi Qi and the other four heard what Sima You Yue said, their hearts could now help but to be shaken. He was right. In the past, they kept to themselves even if they were in their own families. They never trusted anyone to the point that they could present their backs to them. However, today, they were presenting their backs to others because they had no choice, because they trusted each other.
“You Yue, you all can rest assured. We are a team and we will always be companions that you can trust your backs to!” Wei Zi Qi responded with his heartfelt words.
“Thats right, we will always be companions you can trust your backs to!” Fatty Qu confirmed.
Sima You Yue smiled lightly, saying, “That’s good. Let’s begin the battle!”
Bei Gong Tang and Ouyang Fei exchanged glances, with large amounts of battle intent apparent in their gazes, as well as feelings that birthed only out of teammates who suffered together.
Ouyang Fei was still the first one to charge right in front of the Wolf Pack, with Sima You Yue and Bei Gong Tang close behind him. The three of them, with three Spirit Beasts unknowingly formed a circle with Fatty Qu and Wei Zi Qi wrapped in the centre, giving them enough time to condense their Spiritual Qi.
As Fatty Qu and Wei Zi Qi condensed their balls of Spiritual Qi, they would throw it towards the direction of whoever was in the most danger or whoever was the most taxed. There were some times where they threw the balls of Spiritual Qi into the centre of the Wolf Pack, causing them to howl with pain.
After half an hour, because there were too many injuries and deaths, the leader of the Fire Wolves had no choice by to resignedly take its underlings and run away with their tails between their legs.
Only when the Wolf Pack left did everyone collapse to the ground with cuts of various sizes still dripping blood. The fight just now had depleted their energy. After Fatty Qu and Wei Zi Qi had depleted all their Spiritual Qi, they also chose to fight directly with the Wolf Pack.
Sima You Yue took out a medicine bottle and poured out a pill and ate it. After that, she passed the jade bottle to Bei Gong Tang, who poured out four pills and handed it out to everyone.
“We have to leave this place now. The activity just now and the smell of blood will definitely attract other Spirit Beasts.” Looking at how everyone was utterly exhausted, Sima You Yue kept the carcases of all the Fire Wolves into her interspatial ring.
