From a distance, Sylph’s sapphire blue eyes fell upon Wu Yan & co. She started walking towards them after looking for a while. Bing Ling and Bishi exchanged a glance before they followed her.
The others also noticed their approach just like Wu Yan & co. They piped down and they let them approach.
Sylph looked at Wu Yan, Mikoto, and Ikaros in turn before finally looking at Astrea. Bishi and Bing Ling also looked at Wu Yan & co. Bing Ling focused on Wu Yan while Bishi focused on Hinagiku.
The last grand tournament is still a hot topic in Silvaria World Institute. Everyone knew about what transpired in the last tournament. They knew why Sylph, Bing Ling, and Bishi approached Wu Yan & co.
Wu Yan and exchanged a look with Hinagiku. They looked back at the three team leaders who are here for some reason. Both parties didn’t say anything. Meanwhile, Astrea looked back at Sylph who is examining her intently. She tilted her head with a floating question mark on top of her head.
“Why are you looking at me?…”
Astrea is a bit awkward after Sylph stared so hard at her. She grumbled in a dissatisfied tone. Her honest and blunt manner of speech against a princess lightened up the mood. They sighed in a helpless manner.
Sylph replied in a plain tone.
“Next time, I will win…”
Astrea has no clue what she is going on about but the person herself had already left.
“What’s her deal?!”
Mikoto clenched her fists.
“She stole my line, I am going to beat you next time, you hear me?!”
Sylph returned to her camp without turning around, it’s unclear if she heard Mikoto. Bing Ling and Bishi also left after taking another look at Wu Yan and Hinagiku.
Astrea stuck her tongue out at the three after wrinkling her nose.
“What a bunch of weirdos…”
Wu Yan shook his head. He couldn’t care less about what they had to say. It might seem weird to the others but he knows that they are probably dissatisfied with their losses.
The others resumed resting. Even after finding out about the sound-proofing feature of this barrier, the others still maintained a low volume when talking.
After half an hour, Sylph, Fei Fei, Bing Ling, and Bishi stood up. They issued the same command.
“Prepare to move out!”
They gathered up their stuff and they congregated at the meeting point. After dispelling the barrier, the barrier collapsed like poured water. The situation outside the barrier became apparent to them.
Suddenly, 5 blurry figures attacked the people closest to the barrier the moment the barrier fell. Before they realized it, some of their men got jumped by the 5 blurry figures. The smell of iron permeated the air, the ones that got attacked lost their lives in almost an instant.
A closer look revealed that the cause of death was traumatic damage to the head, they quite literally got their heads eaten, blood spurted out of their mauled necks.
The others were stunned. It’s like they can’t react to the present situation. The 5 blurry figures are already on their way to attack the others.
“You fools! Take defensive positions!”
Wu Yan yelled in anger. He managed to call them back to reality but the black figures are already in a position to attack another group of men.
Bishi and Bing Ling defended their men from the attacks of the black figures. They managed to slice two of the figures into halves with their armament, a pair of ice daggers and an arming sword.
A black sword, a sword beam congealed from dou qi, and an icy dagger struck down the remaining 3 figures. Surprised by this sudden ambush, the only thing the others noted after things settled down is the bodies of the 5 demonic wolves that just ambushed them.
Wu Yan grinned sarcastically. He closed the portal behind him and he turned towards Fei Fei and Sylph who lowered their weapons.
“Are these your so-called elites?”
Sylph and Fei Fei lowered their head. The rest of the expedition members finally realized the situation they are in. They started feeling very embarrassed about how they almost pissed their pants at an ambush. They were supposed to be better than that.
Bing Ling and Bishi both released a sigh. They returned to Sylph and Fei Fei’s sides. A heavy mood surrounded the expedition team.
Wu Yan shook his head, he continued in a cold tone.
“Save your mopping for another time.”
Sylph & co raised their heads in a hurry and they saw it…
Jet-black fur, green eyes filled with malice, mouthes dripping with saliva, their low growls that would chill the spine of anyone who heard them. A pack of 2-meter tall wolves emerged from the cover of the forest.
Black demonic wolves: Lvl 60 – Lvl 68
This pack of wolves consisted of 30 demonic wolves that are around level 60 to level 68. They prowled around the expedition team as they slowly surrounded the expedition company.
Excluding Wu Yan & co and Fei Fei, the others all inhaled grimly.
“Ara, we are surrounded…”
Shokuhou Misaki said as if this isn’t related to her. Isn’t she taking this way too easily? Are they not in a pinch?
“Damn, since when…”
Bing Ling gnashed his teeth. He clenched down on his icy daggers. This pack of wolves could be dispatched but he could sense 3 level 68 demonic wolves among this pack of wolves.
Fei Fei & the rest of the expedition stared at the pack of wolves in a grave manner.
Even without the System’s scanning ability, they can all feel that this battle won’t be easy unless you’re as strong as Sylph and the rest, that is.
They started channeling dou qi and magic power like properly-trained elites. A battle can break out at any moment.
