Chapter 240: Going together
These mercenaries’ individual strength, not a single one of them could match the handsome young master. However, when they were grouped together, they could release a collective battle strength. These mercenaries, they worked together in groups of three-five.
With the current scenario, if this kept going, the handsome young master would certainly waste his spiritual energy.
Ye Yu Xi said to Qing’er in her mind, as she had already raised his Soul Devourer Blade to her chest.
Ye Yu Xi jumped out of the tree and cut a mercenary’s throat with a single slash.
The mercenary’s body fell to the ground and splashed in the muddy water.
“Big brother, there’s reinforcements!” Another mercenary shouted out as his blade blocked Qing’er sword.
That mercenary being addressed as big brother coldly looked over Ye Yu Xi and Qing’er as his pupils narrowed.
Qing’er was still alright, she could only fight with two mercenaries for now, but Ye Yu Xi had already taken three mercenaries’ lives in the blink of an eye.
The mercenary leader saw his brother’s formation falling into chaos and they couldn’t keep surrounding them if they kept going. Gritting his teeth, he coldly shouted, “Retreat!”
The remaining mercenaries disappeared into the forest with their big brother.
Ye Yu Xi and Qing’er watched the mercenaries leave and didn’t move forward to chase them.
“Many thanks for these two righteous friends, Yan Hao offers my thanks.” The handsome young master that was surrounded came forward and bowed in front of Ye Yu Xi and Qing’er.
Ye Yu Xi heard the voice behind her and she thought: Yan Hao? Could it be this person is related to Yan Hua?
Turning around and looked at the handsome young master in front of her, Ye Yu Xi said in a hoarse voice, “This young master is too courteous, it was just a small matter.”
“Young master! Young master!”
While they were speaking, an old man’s voice came from the forest.
Turning around, the old man who had taken care of the South City’s Three Evils in the Heaven Mountain Range inn quickly ran over.
Old Hong looked down at the corpses on the ground and understood something. His eyes were filled with concern, “Young master, are you injured?”
Yan Hao shook his head and pointed at Ye Yu Xi and Qing’er in front of him, “Luckily these two came to help, otherwise it would be hard to say what would have happened.”
Hearing the young master’s words, Old Hong’s eyes became more vigilant. He took another look at Ye Yu Xi and Qing’er, feeling that the spiritual energy fluctuations from these two weren’t especially strong.
The more it was like this, the more vigilant Old Hong was. This was the depths of the Heaven Mountain Range!
For two people with weak spiritual energy fluctuations to appear here, either there was an expert guarding them or they were strong, but they were hiding their power. Adding in what Yan Hao just said these two should be the latter.
Old Hong looked at the two of them and cupped his hands, “Since these two friends have save my young master, this old man is grateful. The Heaven Mountain Range are strange and dangerous, how about everyone moves together?”
Ye Yu Xi noticed Old Hong’s wary eyes and after a bit of hesitation, she nodded.
“Young miss, why did you agree?” Qing’er asked Ye Yu Xi in her mind.
Wasn’t the young miss looking for the Beast Flame? It was better to have less people when searching for the Beast Flame, so how would they search for it if they went with others?”
“This person is surnamed Yan, perhaps they are related to Yan Hua. We’ll take this chance to investigate.” Ye Yu Xi said to Qing’er in her mind.
Not far away, the Yan master and servant simply put away their things.
The two sides continued to march deeper into the Heaven Mountain Range.
On the road, Ye Yu Xi, Yan Hao, and Old Hong were both interested in the other side, so they found quite a few things to chat about.
