Mu Hongyu and the rest were frightened, and they hurriedly looked over . However, they saw no movement at all . It was very calm in the silent woods .
Mu Hongyu could not help but softly ask, â€śLiuyue, did you sense it wrongly? There doesnâ€™t seem to be a fiend auraâ€¦â€ť
Chu Liuyue did not say anything as she stared straight in front of them . â€śIf you donâ€™t come out, donâ€™t blame me for being merciless . â€ť
Mu Hongyu and the rest looked at each other awkwardly . There were only trees around them and not even a bush . How could fiends hide here? However, Chu Liuyue did not look like she was kidding, so the rest subconsciously stayed quiet .
The next moment, the fallen leaves suddenly rustled in front of them .
â€śThereâ€™s something there!â€ť Mu Hongyu and the rest suddenly became alert .
There really is a fiend here!
A small ball of fur suddenly wiggled out of the leaves .
â€śWhatâ€¦ is this?â€ť The few people, who thought they were up against a formidable fiend, were dazed .
â€śAh-choo!â€ť That small ball suddenly sneezed, and its round body started to relax and expand .
It was only the size of a fist and was very red . Its fluffy tail was as big as its body, and its pair of black eyes were lively and cute . It blankly stared at Chu Liuyue and the rest as if it did not notice what had just happened . The fellow rubbed its eyes with its small paws as if someone had interrupted its rest .
It was actuallyâ€¦
â€śA small fox?â€ť Mu Hongyu blurted out .
Once the small creature heard that sentence, it suddenly stopped its original movements and quickly shook its head . Â No! Iâ€™m not a fox!
â€śThis is a blood ferret . â€ť Chu Liuyue heaved a sigh of relief .
All of the others were shocked . â€śThe rumored most useless third-grade fiendâ€”blood ferret?â€ť
The small ballâ€™s face suddenly turned dark .
Chu Liuyue nodded . A third-grade fiend was actually of decent grade, but a blood ferret was too small and did not have much attacking power . Besides, it was too lively and active, so it was not suitable to be a hunter fiend .
This kind of blood ferret was usually taken in as pets, and aristocratic children would play with them .
â€śAish, forget it . â€ť The few of them were disappointed . They did not expect that the first fiend they saw after they entered Wan Ling Mountain would actually be a blood ferret .
Chu Liuyue nodded .
The few of them did not have fiends, so they had high hopes when coming here . However, a blood ferret really was unsuitable for them .
The few of them ignored it and turned around to walk away .
Once Chu Liuyue moved, she suddenly stopped in her tracks and lowered her head to take a look .
That small thing bit her clothes at some point in time and was looking at her cutely .
Chu Liuyue kept quiet for a moment .
They did not want to hunt a blood ferret, but it seemed to want to follow them?
Chu Liuyue bent down and wanted to move it away, but the little thing seemed to know her intentions . With a shrink of its body, it moved to the other side to bite her clothes again .
The blood ferret was very fast . If Chu Liuyue tried to catch it with her own hands, she definitely would not be able to succeed . Thus, she did not move any longer .
Mu Hongyu couldnâ€™t help but say, â€śLiuyue, it seems to like you a lot . â€ť Her face was filled with curiosity . She only heard of blood ferrets but had never seen one before .
It seemed pretty cute!
Chu Liuyue also found it weird and said to that thing, â€śWe donâ€™t intend to do anything to you, so donâ€™t follow us . â€ť
The little thing blinked dazedly and only understood Chu Liuyueâ€™s meaning after some time .
Does sheâ€¦ not want me anymore?Â The little thingâ€™s eyes quickly welled up with water, and bead-like tears kept pattering on the ground . It looked up at Chu Liuyue as if it was silently complaining to her .
Chu Liuyue was speechless . Â It seems a little off?
â€śLiuyue, do you want to bring it along? Even if you donâ€™t want to make a pact with it, you can just keep it as a pet . It looks so lonely and pitiful . â€ť Mu Hongyu had no resistance against these types of small, furry creatures . She could not help but say, â€śWhy donâ€™t I let you follow me?â€ť
The little thing frantically shook its head .
Mu Hongyu was a little disappointed . â€śI think it only wants to follow youâ€¦â€ť
Chu Liuyue thought for a while before saying, â€śThen, listen to me obediently, and weâ€™ll bring you along with us . â€ť
The little thing hurriedly nodded . Like a red lightning bolt, it jumped onto Chu Liuyueâ€™s shoulders . With a sit of its butt and a sweep of its tail, it directly sat on Chu Liuyueâ€™s shoulder . From far away, it looked like a red furry ball . It was light and not heavy at all .
Chu Liuyue looked at it, and her lips curved up . â€śLetâ€™s go . â€ť
Afterward, the few of them continued to walk in the forest .
Not long later, they met a third-grade livid horse fiend . Livid horses were bulky and were considered a stronger third-grade fiend .
â€śLivid horses have a cold temperament, and their attacking power is a little low . It normally wonâ€™t battle humans . Itâ€™s suitable to be a horse for you to ride on, but not suitable for you to hunt with,â€ť said Liao Zhongshu softly .
Cen Hu was a little tempted but immediately rejected this idea when he heard what Liao Zhongshu said . â€śLetâ€™s continue walking then . Perhaps weâ€™ll meet something better!â€ť After saying that, Cen Hu led the way in front .
However, the livid horse didnâ€™t just leave them . It stood in front of them, and its hooves scratched against the ground a few times . It breathed out roughly, and its eyes were filled with vague enmity .
Cen Hu noticed that something was wrong and knitted his brows to ask, â€śNerd, didnâ€™t you say livid horses wonâ€™t take the initiative to attack people? Why does it seem it wants to go against us?â€ť
Liao Zhongshu was also shocked . â€śI donâ€™t think so . My family has a few livid horses, and all of them are very gentle . Why is thisâ€¦ Is it because Wan Ling Mountainâ€™s fiends are generally more ferocious?â€ť
Before he could finish his sentence, the livid horse neighed and dashed towards the few of them .
Cen Hu was in front of the pack .
â€śHe!â€ť bellowed Cen Hu deeply as his legs bent slightly . He also raised his muscular arms as he tightly clenched his fan-like palms into fists before suddenly attacking .
â€śOne Punch Up!â€ť He was originally a stage-three warrior and physically strong . Together with the power in his fists, he was not one to be underestimated .
His fists were very harsh as they went straight for the livid horse .
The livid horse raised its front hooves and was about to avoid the fist .
Cen Hu immediately followed up and directly went under the livid horse . Right after that, his fists turned into claws that went straight for the livid horseâ€™s stomach .
A cut immediately appeared in the livid horseâ€™s stomach, and blood spurted everywhere .
Even Cen Huâ€™s face was stained with blood . However, this ignited his fighting spirit .
â€śDie!â€ť hollered Cen Hu as he wanted to take its life .
At this moment, the livid horse suddenly raised its leg and harshly kicked Cen Huâ€™s chest .
â€śBe careful!â€ť Mu Hongyu and the rest all noticed that something was amiss, so they immediately backed him up .
The livid horse was attacked and distracted, so its attack was much weaker than usual . However, it was very angry and kicked Cen Huâ€™s back .
Cen Hu suffered the heavy impact and collapsed to the floor . He spat out a mouthful of blood, and his face became much paler than before .
Gu Mingfeng stared straight at the livid horse and saw the vague red color in its eyes . â€śThis beast is going crazy!â€ť
Chu Liuyue knitted her brows slightly . Â Why did a gentle livid horse attack us for no reason? This crazily too .
At this moment, Mu Hongyu suddenly yelled, â€śLiuyue! Danger!â€ť
Chu Liuyue looked up and saw that the livid horse had rushed past Mu Hongyu and the rest and was heading straight for her . It was targeting her!
