They arrived at this place with maps at hand as well as travelling companions. This man was alone, yet reached the water source ahead of them. It showed that he was exceptional.
The man sensed their presence and took a glance at them. After a glimpse, he looked away and ignored them. After taking out a bamboo tube and filled it with water, he was about to continue walking.
Bi San and He Sheng called out to him in unison, “Brother, please wait a moment.” They chased after the man.
Feng Jiu observed the man furtively with obvious appreciation in her eyes. This man was indeed capable. He looked to be in his thirties, his clothes were stained with blood and a knife at the ready in his hand. It was clear that he had killed people on his journey.
Most of the people sent in Ghost Elder were Nascent Soul cultivators. This man could defeat cultivators of that calibre with his sole strength, killing enemy champions whose strength surpassed him by a great length. His explosive power was extraordinary.
“What for?” That man looked back and squinted at them. His aura was very terrifying.
Feng Jiu couldn’t help but smile. This man’s imposing manner wasn’t inferior to the eight Feng Guards at her side. His ferocity was revealed unconsciously, so without attacking, he already intimidated his opponents.
She didn’t expect to meet crouching tigers and hidden dragons among those captured people.
“We are a big team comprised of dozens of people. Brother, would you join us? This way, we can take care of each other.” Bi San invited him. This kind of person must certainly be recruited.
“No need.” The man refused directly, walked on, and soon disappeared in front of them.
“I recognized this man. It’s the man who could kill champions possessing greater strength. Last time, he was in the spotlight as the most favoured seedling. I didn’t expect that apart from his good combat effectiveness, he also had a good sense of direction. Without having a map, he can reach this place. How remarkable.”
Bi San withdrew his gaze, his voice filled with unconcealed regret. It’s a shame they couldn’t take that outstanding man on their team.
However, Feng Jiu did not speak. She just listened and watched quietly. Then, she went back with them and sat down in a place, listening to Bi San and He Sheng tell the others about the man they had just met.
“Alright, let’s go, we have enough rest. After getting out of the forest, we can take another break.” Lei Xiao stood up and had everyone set out for the journey. The group quickened their pace and moved on.
In the early morning of the third day, seeing that they were about to pass through the forest, Feng Jiu who used to be reticent during the journey, suddenly came forward.
“I think we can split up here.” At this sudden remark, everyone was surprised.
“What do you mean?” Bi San inquired.
The gazes of those fifty to sixty people also fell on Feng Jiu. Obviously, they had no idea what she meant. No one thought too deeply and they also didn’t try to guess what other people were thinking when they saw them all in a group of dozens.
Feng Jiu glanced at them and spoke in a voice that was neither loud nor soft. “I think they captured us and brought us here with the intention to train and cultivate us to be Shadow Disciples. They certainly don’t want us to have too much involvement with each other. It’s not easy for them to control. It’s also prone to accidents.”
They were not fools. Once they heard Feng Jiu’s explanation, they immediately understood.
