Chu Liuyue’s heart tightened as she looked up at the forest, but she realized that the sound seemed to be coming from all directions.
Shangguan Jing’s eyebrows twitched slightly. “Don’t worry. Those are just vengeful spirits in the Red Soul Woods.”
“That’s right. The so-called vengeful spirits are the souls of the warriors who once wanted to pass through the Red Soul Woods and enter the God-Killing Tumulus. They’re filled with resentment because they were trapped here and died. However, these souls don’t have their own will and divine sense. As long as you don’t use origin power, you won’t be discovered by them and can pass through safely.”
Chu Liuyue nodded thoughtfully. “I see…”
The whimper was miserable as if it were beside her.
When that voice clearly fell into their ears, they couldn’t help but feel a chill in their hearts.
It wasn’t difficult to imagine how miserable and pitiful these people were when they died in the Red Soul Woods. Fortunately, the three of them were mentally strong and weren’t disturbed by the whimpers as they continued forward.
But after being disturbed by this voice, Shangguan Jing did not continue his story.
Chu Liuyue didn’t ask further.
Her ancestor had always been carefree. She could tell that the incident back then had indeed affected him deeply. Even now, a thousand years later, he was still unwilling to mention it.
He has probably not completely let go… Actually, upon careful thought, it is understandable. At that time, Ancestor had wandered the God Residence Realm alone and regarded only this person as a friend. He could almost trust him with his life, but the other party betrayed him for a treasure… Nobody would feel good about this.
However, Chu Liuyue still had a small question in her heart. At that time, Ancestor was already a supreme Armory Refinement Master. His status is much higher than that of a legendary warrior and a supreme Physician at the same level. Then, why did that person choose to betray Ancestor and kill him just for a treasure that could help a true god break through to a legendary warrior?
On the one hand, Ancestor wasn’t interested in this thing. On the other hand, even if he obtained this treasure and successfully broke through to become a legendary warrior, he was still slightly inferior to Ancestor. Why did he have to be so determined?
However, Shangguan Jing didn’t continue talking, so she didn’t ask.
For Ancestor, every time he mentions it, it should be the process of tearing open the scar again.
She pursed her lips and lowered her eyes. She suppressed the doubts and emotions in her heart and followed her ancestor forward.
There were a few times when her ears hurt from the whimpers. She even felt that someone was standing beside her, ready to kill her at any moment. However, she got herself under control in the end, ignored it, and bent her head forward.
After walking for an unknown period of time, the shrill whimpers beside her finally subsided. Only then did she heave a sigh of relief.
The sound was endless and lingered for a long time. It was unknown how many people had died here, let alone how many bones were buried under this seemingly flat and clean ground.
The leaves rustled as the wind blew.
Chu Liuyue looked up.
On the black trees, countless red leaves swayed in the wind.
As she got closer, she could clearly see the veins on a leaf. It wasn’t the veins of a normal leaf, but… the shape of a human bone!
A cold air surged from the bottom of her feet!
She calmly retracted her gaze, but the scene of these leaves swaying in the wind like blood-colored palms last night appeared in her mind. So… The Red Soul Woods isn’t even within the range of the God-Killing Tumulus, but it is already so terrifyingly dangerous. I wonder what danger awaits us after we enter the God-Killing Tumulus…
“We’re almost out.” At this moment, Shangguan Jing’s words interrupted her train of thought.
Chu Liuyue looked in the direction of the voice and indeed saw the edge of the forest ahead.
They should be able to leave successfully in about half an hour.
Chu Liuyue didn’t dare to let down her guard and followed behind her ancestor even more cautiously. As long as—
“Ah!” A scream suddenly broke the silence in the forest!
Chu Liuyue’s heart skipped a beat. This isn’t the voice of a vengeful spirit but a human, and it sounds… familiar!
The few of them turned around and looked in the direction of the voice. Indeed, they saw a few familiar figures.
It was Nan Yuxing’s group!
They seemed to have encountered some danger and were running quickly in their direction. As they ran, they looked back from time to time as if afraid that something would catch up.
Shangguan Jing couldn’t help but curse. At this moment, we are about to successfully leave this place, but another problem came looking for us!
“Let’s go!” Shangguan Jing immediately shouted, grabbed Chu Liuyue’s wrist, and quickly headed out of the forest.
Rong Xiu quickly followed behind the two of them.
“Wait! You guys!” Nan Yuxing and the others were originally in a terrible fix when they suddenly saw someone in front of them. They couldn’t care less and immediately shouted. “Help us! We’ll definitely reward you!”
As the two sides weren’t too close and were covered by the trees in the forest, they didn’t see clearly that the people in front were Rong Xiu’s trio.
Chu Liuyue knitted her brows.
Hearing Nan Yuxing’s anxious voice and the scream from Nan Yiyi just now, it wasn’t difficult to deduce that they were in trouble. But because her ancestor reacted quickly, she didn’t see the exact situation over there.
However, it was precisely because her ancestor’s reaction was fast and strong that she was even more certain that this was definitely not a good thing.
Thinking about how arrogant those people were before they came in… Now that even they were forced to this extent, it could be seen that they had met with a lot of trouble!
They were about to get out safely, and if they were dragged down by someone now, she wasn’t sure if she would want to kill them.
But because they couldn’t use force in the forest, their speed didn’t increase very much.
On the other hand, Nan Yuxing and the others were already forced into a life-and-death situation. How could they care so much? They only knew to use their full speed to attack!
The distance between the two sides quickly narrowed.
Chu Liuyue could even hear the strange rustling sound behind her. She couldn’t help but glance over her shoulder.
What she saw made her pupils constrict immediately!
In the forest, Nan Yuxing and the others were fleeing in a sorry state.
Nan Yiyi looked panicked, and her face was covered in tears.
There was an additional wound on her left shoulder. Although it had been barely bandaged with gauze, it was still dark red.
The two old men were guarding them from behind, but they didn’t look in a good state either.
Behind them, several scarlet leaves were rapidly approaching! Wherever the leaves passed, black spatial cracks appeared!
It was as if it would devour them at any moment!
