Gu Bailu shook her head. “Don’t be so pessimistic. It’s possible that they’re gathering for fun. Also, we can always abort the mission. It’s better to be punished than to be killed.”
Li Erbao returned very soon. “We better give up. A bunch of advanced monsters are over there. It’s impossible to acquire their souls.”
They could deal with one advanced monster, but a horde was too much.
Besides, there was still the beast king as well as his family.
The roars got louder and louder. Gu Bailu felt her ears hum.
“Then, let’s get out of here.”
She then dragged Wang Ziyan into a run. Just get out of here first.
Zhou Tianxiang and Li Erbao also ran. With their spiritual power, they soon vanished.
They didn’t care about Gu Bailu and Wang Ziyan’s lives anymore.
Caring about them right now might mean immediate death, while leaving them alone would guarantee their survival for now.
Gu Bailu knew exactly what was on their minds.
A powerful tornado swept over, and Gu Bailu and Wang Ziyan were knocked into a tree trunk.
“What’s going on?” Gu Bailu’s stomach rolled. She felt airsick.
Other people might get carsick or sick on a boat, but she was airsick!
Wang Ziyan rose and hid behind her in fear, before she stammered, “I’ve been told that monsters often gather here to look for trouble with humans. There are always a lot of casualties.”
Gu Bailu frowned. That probably meant that the monsters were on a rampage!
That could be really dangerous.
A roar was enough to fling her into a tree. If they had to fight, would she be torn to shreds?
“Get up. Let’s keep running.”
Gu Bailu pulled Wang Ziyan up and ran, but they were soon covered by a gigantic shadow.
Wang Ziyan shuddered behind Gu Bailu in tears.
Numbly, Gu Bailu raised her head, only to discover a huge bull demon.
The beast had two spiky horns. His hooves were as huge as bridges. Gu Bailu felt as insignificant as an ant under him.
The bull demon could easily flatten her with a stomp.
“Hey, what are you doing here?” Gu Bailu greeted the monster and took out a teleportation rune.
Escape was always the best move.
One monster was terrifying enough; a whole gang of them was a completely hopeless situation.
“After I toss the rune out, jump in with me,” Gu Bailu said to Wang Ziyan in a low voice.
Wang Ziyan nodded, trembling.
The bull demon stepped forward, and Gu Bailu almost fell to the ground.
Solemnly, she was about to throw a rune out, when there was an explosion.
Leaves and dust flew everywhere, and the bull demon dropped. When the dust settled, Gu Bailu’s eyes popped out when she looked at the bull demon.
The bull demon was on his knees.
He was on all fours, his back still straight.
