“Okay! We’ll continue then!” As if Mu Hongyu ate a pill of reassurance, she clenched her fists as her originally hesitant expression became determined .
Cen Hu nodded . “Since you said to continue, we’ll follow your lead!”
Even though Gu Mingfeng did not say anything, he lightly nodded in agreement .
Mr . Wen Yan was taken aback by the scene in front of him .
Chu Liuyue is actually making the decisions for this team now? She said to continue, and the others had no opinions whatsoever . It seems like she’s more confident than before . They’ve only entered Wan Ling Mountain for a day . What exactly happened to them?
“Liuyue, are you sure?” asked Mr . Wen Yan worriedly after hesitating slightly . “Wan Ling Mountain is different from the past, and it’s much more dangerous . Even if you really want to hunt for fiends, I don’t think this is the best time…”
“Since we’re already here, there’s no reason for us to retreat . ” Chu Liuyue spoke lightly and calmly, which reassured the rest .
“Mr . Wen Yan, you can just bring Liao Zhongshu back . We know our limits, and we won’t risk our lives . We’ll be really indignant if we go back just like this . ”
Mr . Wen Yan was quite anxious . “Liuyue, I know that the few of you are pretty strong, and you all have your own pride… However, the four of you are now injured, and this place is bloodied . Do you think that I don’t know how much danger you were in previously? You—”
He suddenly saw a fiend corpse not far away while he was talking, and his voice faded away . That’s…
“… A red wolf? You were attacked by red wolves?” He came in a rush, so he did not notice the red wolf corpse at first .
Mu Hongyu was still scarred . “Mr . Wen Yan, that’s the corpse of the red wolf pack leader . We… were just attacked by a pack of red wolves!”
This sentence stunned Mr . Wen Yan, making him speechless . He hurriedly went forward to take a closer look at the corpse . It is indeed a wolf leader! Even though it is dirtied and covered in blood, the sliced head’s features are very obvious .
“Y-You guys killed it?”
“Liuyue and Gu Mingfeng killed it . ” Mu Hongyu sighed . “The three of us were in charge of blocking the pack of wolves . Zhongshu got injured because he was saving Cen Hu and me . ”
Mr . Wen Yan opened his mouth but could not say anything since his heart was in turmoil . Red wolf pack! Red wolf leader! The few of them actually handled them successfully… Other than Liao Zhongshu, the other four seemed to have suffered minor injuries only .
Even though he knew these few people ranked decently in the assessments, he did not expect them to be so powerful when they worked together . He was silent for quite a while .
While looking at the fire jumping in front of her, Chu Liuyue lightly said, “Mr . Wen Yan, I know you’re worried about us . However, such is the life of cultivation . If we want a peaceful road, then we’ll never become true formidable warriors, right?”
Wen Yan was shocked, and he looked at Chu Liuyue with a complicated gaze . “… You’re right . I was thinking too much . ” If they’re fearful of everything, how can they grow up?
“I’ll send Zhongshu out first then . The rest of you must be careful and immediately seek assistance if anything goes wrong . ”
Chu Liuyue and the rest nodded . “Don’t worry, teacher . ”
After Mr . Wen Yan left with Liao Zhongshu, the few of them decided to rest in shifts .
Chu Liuyue took the first shift . She had the lightest injury out of all of them, so she let the others recover first .
The surroundings became silent once again .
Chu Liuyue sat cross-legged and regulated her breathing as the fight scene with the wolf leader kept replaying in her head . This body is still too weak… When I head back, I should consider improving the body’s strength…
Chu Liuyue felt her shoulders sink, and she turned around to take a look . A red furball was squatting on her body .
“You’re pretty smart . You run the fastest when there’s danger and come back when it’s over . ” Chu Liuyue lightly poked it .
The blood ferret’s tail waved as it showed a pair of watery eyes filled with flattering intentions .
“Hm?” Chu Liuyue raised her brow and looked at it .
The blood ferret inched in closer and slowly extended its claws . It looked very wronged and worried as tears welled up in its eyes . It looked like it would cry if Chu Liuyue was any sterner .
This appearance made nobody able to blame it .
Chu Liuyue rubbed her glabella . It’s logical since blood ferrets are the weakest third-grade fiends . They don’t have any other abilities except for escaping the fastest . I had no intentions of scolding it . I never really expected this thing to help us defeat the red wolf pack…
“Forget it . It’s okay as long as you’re happy . ” Chu Liuyue patted its head .
The little thing finally relaxed when it noticed that Chu Liuyue was no longer angry . It then closed the gap between them and rubbed against her face .
Chu Liuyue’s lips curved up slightly .
Nothing happened the entire night .
The few of them set off again the next morning and headed towards Wan Ling Mountain’s depths .
The further they traversed into the lush greenery, the quieter it was . However, this atmosphere made the few of them even more alert .
“It seems like this place is a little strange…” muttered Mu Hongyu as she surveyed their surroundings .
Chu Liuyue, who was walking in front, suddenly stopped .
The few of them stood still as well .
“Liuyue, what’s the problem?” asked Mu Hongyu . After experiencing what happened yesterday, they completely believed in Chu Liuyue .
Chu Liuyue’s brows knitted slightly . “Go back!”
“Go back? But we just arrived—”
The few of them were very confused, but they did not say anything else after seeing Chu Liuyue’s serious expression . However, a girl suddenly screamed from behind after they walked a few steps . “Save me!”
