Chapter 1037: One Year II
The group of men in black finally reacted. Their anger rose in three waves, and they once again leaned toward Feng Ruqing.
Even though Feng Ruqing had already broken through to Intermediate Dark Warrior tier, she was not facing just one Dark Warrior but a large number of them.
Even without the middle-aged man’s lead, these black-dressed men could still win by numbers.
Otherwise, there would not have been so many spirit beasts dead at their hands.
Even the hunting dog and other beasts, which had recovered just a bit, could not just stand idly by. With determination in their eyes, they entered the battlefield again.
Time passed by slowly.
The setting sun set the sky ablaze with fiery red.
The devastatingly beautiful young girl holding her sword dripping with blood, making her red dress more garish than ever, stood in the evening breeze with unrivaled grace and elegance.
Little Qing Han rubbed her chin and silently watched the scene unfold.
As for the middle-aged man she had just tied up with vines…
Opps! She was a little too excited earlier. She failed to control her strength and had strangled him to death.
Without the middle-aged man, many of the spirit beasts could recover from their injuries. The group of men had lost their numerical advantage and was gradually defeated.
They lost their lives in the mountains.
But the beasts could never forget the gloom brought by this battle.
They could never understand what they had done wrong.
Maybe, it was a mistake for the spirit beasts… to be alive!
The hunting dog whimpered; its voice tinged with grief and despair.
It looked at its companions who had fallen in a pool of blood and could no longer be saved. After all this, it did not know whether it still trust and love thehumankind.
Suddenly, the dog recalled something and stared at the young girl who was standing under the setting sun.
The young girl’s figure was tall and thin, but somehow it had grown taller in its heart.
It also ignited all the hope within it.
See, not all human beings were vicious and insidious. There were always those who would not bully the weak, or trample on someone’s life. There were those who would not… humiliate them!
It chose to trust the human again, even if it had bruises all over!
“Bury the bodies of your companions.” Feng Ruqing’s eyes fell on those carcasses on the ground. “As for the enemy’s corpses, it is up to you to do whatever you want. In the meantime, I will stay in the beast forest.”
Hearing that Feng Ruqing would not be leaving, all the spirit beasts cried out in joy.
It was just a short stay, but it made them grow to rely on her.
They were unwilling to let her leave.
“It’s getting late, Big Rabbit, take me somewhere to rest.”
She glanced at the fallen spirit beasts in the pool of blood for the last time and allowed the big rabbit to lead her to the nearest cave.
Through some inquiries along their way, Feng Ruqing finally understood the situation in the beast forest.
It was remarkably similar to Cang Yue Mainland.
The spirit beasts in this secret realm were mighty back then that they were able to divide the territory with the humans.
The spirit beasts were divided into various tribes, and each of them had its beast king.
Later, when humans claimed to live in harmony with the spirit beasts, they had invited all the beast kings to a feast.
The beast kings were always simple-minded. Their senses were not sharp enough to think that it was a trap.
Since then, all the beast kings had disappeared.
