In the Desolate Valley.
Gong Jue looked at the faraway scouts of Lou Ye’s army. He hid behind a boulder, expressionlessly shredding a piece of meat and putting it in his mouth.
He used those ten people’s bodies as bait to hunt and kill a stray wolf. Wolf meat was disgusting to eat, yet he bit it one at a time as if he couldn’t taste the fishy scent.
In this period of time, he saw plenty of corpses, many of them from Great Yu and also from Lou Ye. Seems like everyone’s been searching for him. However, if those from Great Yu were to look for him, they’d have to first break through the Lou Ye army. That’s why the number of people from Great Yu who entered alive were only in the single digits.
Gong Jue looked towards the sky. It looked like it was going to snow soon. Every time it snowed, the miasma in the Chaotic Valley would subside. That was also when Lou Ye would send its people to find him.
The reason why Gong Jue wasn’t affected by the fog was because when he first came in, he breathed in the fog and had hallucinations when he suddenly woke up and found himself in a mysterious patch of yellow flowers. Those yellow flowers were the antidote!
That was originally a good thing, but it snowed more and more frequently and he had no food. His situation gradually grew more dangerous.
Another seven days had passed. Snowflakes fluttered through the sky as Gong Jue once again made his way to the edge of the valley. Looking at a group of people nonchalantly sitting next to a fire, he felt particularly depressed.
“How much longer does the general want us to wait for? Just for a single person, he wants us to surround the valley! I say, that brat has probably long died inside, what’s the point of waiting any longer?!”
Another older bearded man comforted him, “That brat was able to play more than 10,000 troops. He even killed the defending commander and burned the supplies. How could he die so easily? And don’t let your guard down! If we make another mistake, we’ll all be killed by the general!”
“That brat has the commander’s token on him. It’d be a humiliation for that thing to land in the hands of those outsiders! We must recover it!”
“Who knows if the people who went inside found that brat or not?”
The token they were talking about was just a token carved out of bone. Every person who had an important status had a token usually hung around the neck. Gong Jue also planned on using these three tokens in his hand to gain credits for his achievements. This was solid proof!
Gong Jue silently looked at these people. His body seemed to be in harmony with the night. All was still.
He had scouted for many days now. Other than this group, if you walked out farther, there were still two points to pass. That’s why it was unwise to alert the enemy now.
But the heavens seemed to be assisting him! Just when he was thinking how good it would be if someone could divert their attention, in the distance, there was the sound of soldiers clashing!
Someone shouted from far away, “Catch her! Don’t let her go in!”
The group by the campfire heard the noise and hurriedly went over!
Gong Jue narrowed his eyes. Seeing the group in front of his eyes rushing over, he inwardly thought, Could it be another group from Great Yu? Or perhaps, it was a good opportunity to escape? There were only two stations ahead of him. Maybe he could first escape and then disguise as an enemy soldier?
His figure drew closer like shadows. Night was the best cover. More and more people were rushing in that direction. Gong Jue smiled and moved fast in the other direction. Before anyone could notice, he should leave and think of a plan afterwards!
As for the life and death of the person who came to save him, since they were here to help him, isn’t dying to help them sacrilegious?
However, before he could leave, a loud scream stopped him in his tracks!
Gong Yi Mo retreated backwards as she mocked, “You’re all too slow! How are you going to catch me with that speed?”
Gong Jue’s eyes stared at that piece of darkness! That voice just now! That voice!!
