"Let's run then!"
Gu Xijiu was leading the group while the 12 of them were in the middle; Di Fuyi was right behind them. The 12 of them had used all their energy to run. Fortunately, they were running at a very high speed; hence, the bugs did not catch them. However, those monsters were extremely stubborn and did not stop chasing after them.
Suddenly, Gu Xijiu stopped when she saw a cave in the distance. The rest station was just around the corner, and there were many young kids and old folks there. She could not imagine the consequences if they lured the monsters along. Therefore, she turned around as she grabbed her sword tightly. She was going to fight and kill as many monsters as she could.
Before she managed to open her mouth, she realized that the wave of dark shadows paused behind them. To their surprise, the monsters stopped chasing them and only circled at the same spot, making an irritating noise. Countless of red eyes stared at Gu Xijiu and the group. However, they did not dare to move forward as though there was a taboo. A moment later, the monsters gathered and formed a big pile of black smoke again and retreated. In just a blink of an eye, there was no sign of them at all.
Everyone was sweating from the run, but they finally could heave a sigh of relief. It was indeed a surprise that they managed to escape a fierce battle in such an easy way! There were many wild animals in the forest that had been eaten alive by the bugs. Terrifyingly enough, many of their skeletons were still in a running or fighting posture when the locusts bit them.
"Looks like there is something the monsters fear about in the cave." Zhao Fengxing wiped away his sweat on his forehead.
Gu Xijiu suddenly thought about the red mist in the valley. Perhaps, the monsters were afraid of the creature? She was surprised that the rest station was an unknown safehouse. Thus, it might be a good place for them to settle down if they could not enter the city. However, that was not her primary plan.
Although the rest station was free from the bugs, there was no cover or shade. The villagers had nowhere to hide when the blood rainfall comes; hence, they had to go to the city. Gu Xijiu and the group finally passed through the cave and saw the villagers. Before Gu Xijiu had left the village earlier, she instructed the villagers not to leave the rest station despite their curiosity. The patriarch managed to keep them all at bay. Only Tie Dan and Tie Niu were anxiously keeping their eyes on the entrance and finally heaved a sigh of relief when they saw Gu Xijiu return.
Gu Xijiu brought the 12 of them to see the patriarch, and everyone was generally very happy. Since 12 more people were joining the team, they had higher hopes of making it to the city.Find authorized novels in Webnovel，faster updates, better experience，Please click www.webnovel.com for visiting.
The next morning, everyone began to leave the rest station after sunrise to depart to Luo Hua City according to Gu Xijiu's plan. The number of monsters was indeed lesser during the day, coupled with the protection from so many experts, all the ferocious beasts were easily defeated.
Finally, they have arrived at Luo Hua City during sunset. As the villagers looked at the high green wall at the entrance and the soldiers that surrounded it, they cried and shed their tears of joy.
"Males and females below 30 years old are allowed to enter the city. We are sorry, but for the adults above 30 years old, Luo Hua city does not have extra food for incapable people!" That was what the guard said with an icy tone as if pushing the villagers who have struggled to come here into the hell.
