Since things had already ended like this, everyone decided to rest in their spot .
Mu Hongyu went to start a fire, while the others sat around it and waited for the teacher to come .
Chu Liuyue found some herbs and helped Liao Zhongshu bandage his wound to staunch the blood temporarily . The others were also hurt, so she distributed the herbs and let them handle their injuries themselves .
In the end, she applied the remaining herbs on her arm, which triggered the previously weakened pain, causing her to knit her brows .
A person walked over, and Chu Liuyue raised her head to take a look .
It was Gu Mingfeng .
“Thanks… for just now . ” The bopping fire reflected on Gu Mingfeng’s face, causing his expression to look more ambiguous .
Chu Liuyue shook her head . “It’s nothing much . That wolf leader was very strong, and neither you and I were its match alone . We could only win if we worked together . We’re lucky that our luck was not bad . ”
Gu Mingfeng looked at her, and many thoughts flashed across his mind . Even though Chu Liuyue said it casually, it was a life-and-death battle previously . She would’ve lost her life if she was not careful . However, Chu Liuyue did not hesitate at all .
Especially when I think about how I was going to die under the wolf leader’s fangs… If Chu Liuyue did not appear in time, I probably would be worse off than Liao Zhongshu at this point . She saved me, but she doesn’t seem to care . Is there really such a selfless person in the world?
Chu Liuyue detected that Gu Mingfeng had not left, so she raised her head and looked at him . She coincidentally saw his touched eyes .
Gu Mingfeng knitted his brows and immediately avoided her gaze .
Chu Liuyue smiled in her heart . She had seen too many people who overthought in her previous life, so she could immediately tell what Gu Mingfeng was thinking .
Perhaps it was because of his family background that he had a sensitive nature, and instinctively did not believe the people around him . Even if they were on a team, Chu Liuyue believed that Gu Mingfeng actually did not care about the few people’s survival . The main reason why he decided to lead and go against the wolf leader was that he wanted to survive .
“I conveniently saved you . You don’t have to take it to heart . In such a situation, I’ll save whoever it is,” said Chu Liuyue lightly .
Gu Mingfeng was shocked since he realized that Chu Liuyue had seen through his thoughts . He knitted his brows and felt a little discomfort . He planned to turn around and walk away .
He took one step and still stopped moving . “No matter what, I owe you a favor . ” He then walked to a place far away to sit and closed his eyes to rest .
Chu Liuyue looked at him in deep thought and had a better impression of him . This Gu Mingfeng is much better than his step-sister—Gu Mingzhu—who shares the same father .
After waiting for around an hour or so, Mr . Wen Yan, who led the teams, finally arrived . He looked exhausted, and his body was stained with spots of blood as if he had just been in battle .
Upon seeing the bandages on Chu Liuyue and the others, he hurriedly went forward and asked, “You were attacked by fiends too?”
Too? Chu Liuyue’s interest was piqued . “How did you know, Mr . Wen Yan?”
Wen Yan knitted his brows tightly . “Lu Feiyan and the others also met with such a scenario earlier . Three of them had serious injuries while the other two had minor ones . I received their call for help two hours ago, and I rushed over after sending them out . ”
Mu Hongyu and the rest were shocked . “Their condition is so serious?”
Mr . Wen Yan looked serious and nodded . “Yeah . According to them, they met with an attack from cloud-reaching leopards . ”
Cloud-reaching leopards were also third-grade fiends, and they were very strong and ferocious . It was no wonder that Lu Feiyan and the rest were so wounded .
“Then… Did they all leave and withdraw from the hunt?”
“Yeah . The three deeply wounded did not have any attacking power any longer . Lu Feiyan and the other person were also badly affected by the battle and did not dare to carry on,” said Wen Yan as he walked to Liao Zhongshu . After thoroughly checking his wound, Wen Yan heaved a sigh of relief . “Luckily, you treated your injuries in time . Though your injuries are serious, you can still make it if you go back now . ”
Liao Zhongshu knew himself that he would only be everyone’s burden if he stayed . Thus, he said, “Sorry for the trouble, Mr . Wen Yan . ”
Wen Yan sighed . “Zhongshu, you are capable and could’ve hunted a suitable fiend this time…” It’s a pity that he has to forget about it due to his current state .
Liao Zhongshu’s pale lips moved as he weakly smiled . “Mr . Wen Yan, you don’t have to worry . I know that my life is more important . ”
“It’s good that you can think this way . There will be plenty of chances after you recuperate . It’s really not worth a moment of impulsiveness . ”
Wen Yan felt comforted . He then looked at Chu Liuyue and the rest . “Then, what about the four of you?”
Cen Hu roughly said, “Of course, we’re going to continue!”
It’ll be very cowardly of them to retreat now . Liao Zhongshu almost lost his life fighting against the wolves . What would be the point if they retreated together?
“Are you sure?” Mr . Wen Yan sighed . “Wan Ling Mountain is pretty weird this time . Some of the fiends that usually only walk around in the inner areas have actually appeared in the outer areas . They’re very strong . I contacted the other teachers just now, and quite a few teams have met with similar situations . It’ll be dangerous if you continue to go deeper into the forest . ”
Cen Hu was taken aback . He scratched his head and looked at Chu Liuyue subconsciously .
Mu Hongyu and Gu Mingfeng looked over at the same time .
“… Liuyue, what do you think?” asked Mu Hongyu .
Mr . Wen Yan was a little surprised . Isn’t their team leader Mu Hongyu? Why does it seem like Chu Liuyue is the core?
After thinking for a moment, Chu Liuyue calmly looked at the rest . “I… choose to continue!”
