Chapter 438 Retreat, Vicious Flames Mercenaries


“Brother Zhao, what are you doing?” Yi Hu Cheng asked in a loud voice.

Zhao Yi Han was also struggling in his heart. He had promised Yi Hu Cheng that he would kill Gong Shao Qing and the others, but he had never thought that the Gong Shao Qing and others strength would be so powerful.

The clash had resulted in four of their members dying. If this trend of defeat kept repeating, and they continued to fight, they would only have more losses.

They had lost three members who were at the Mysterious Eon Late stage, they would not be able to bear any further losses. If they continued to fight, it is likely they would be annihilated.

Then, it would be too late for regret.

Yi Hu Cheng was a cultivator at the Mysterious Eon Middle Stage. He naturally wanted to recruit him into their mercenary group. However, their defeat was now inevitable and the outcome could not be changed.

If he continued to let everyone fight, more of his brothers would undoubtedly die.

“Brother Yi, we will withdraw for today.” Zhao Yi Han said.

Their predictions were wrong. Before, he had thought that Gong Shao Qing was the strongest cultivator amidst their ranks.

As long as Yi Hu Cheng kept Gong Shao Qing occupied, they would win without a doubt.

After the fight, he discovered that the strongest one was not Gong Shao Qing, but Di Bei Chen!

Even if he had fought Di Bei Chen for quite some while, he could still not find out the true strength of Di Bei Chen.

Obviously, the moment Di Bei Chen started fighting, their group had already lost.

“Why?” Yi Hu Cheng asked, unwilling.

He had managed to get to this point, how could he easily give up?

“We have to go back!” Zhao Yi Han said with seriousness. They couldn’t succeed today, but as long as they prepared more, it would not be impossible for them to succeed.

Gong Shao Qing and the others looked at Zhao Yi Han and the others with icy eyes. Zhao Yi Han’s actions did not surpass their expectations and made them feel relieved.

Yi Hu Cheng saw that Zhao Yi Han’s mind had been made up. Although he was unwilling in his heart, he was helpless. After all, one person alone could not be an opponent of Gong Shao Qing and the others.

Seeing Yi Hu Cheng agree, Zhao Yi Han was also relieved, waving his hand he ordered, “We are going!”

The members of the Vicious Flames Mercenary Group had long resigned themselves. The moment they hear the command of Zhao Yi Han, they quickly retreated.

That speed… it was much faster than when they rushed here.

“We won’t chase them?” Xia Zhi Qing saw that no one made any moves, and could not help but ask.

Gong Shao Qing shook his head. “They have so many people fleeing everywhere. It doesn’t make sense for us to chase after them.”

Even if they did catch up, they would only kill one or two members of the Vicious Flames Mercenary Group. What was the point in that?

“We will regroup for now and continue our expedition.”

The crowd nodded, the miasma forest was the most important goal of their trip.

“It can be said, that Yi Hu Cheng will not easily abandon his pursuit. From now on we have to be even more careful, they can come trouble us any time.” Di Bei Chen reminded.

Although he did not know what exactly happened between Yi Hu Cheng, Gong Shao Qing and Liu Qin Yue, in his opinion, Yi Hu Cheng and Gong Shao Qing were irreconcilable.

In other words, as long as Yi Hu Cheng does not die, the contradiction between him and Gong Shao Qing would continue.

Gong Shao Qing’s eyes flashed with a touch of complex light. He too understood Di Bei Chen’s words.
