Chapter 269 Escape, Return
“We can’t deal with this Night Beast at all!”
Xue Jinghua was anxious.
While Xu Ning and the others were resisting the bug beast swarm, Dong Ji, Xue Jinghua, and the Night Beast were fighting fiercely.
The two were helpless against the Night Beast, as it was receiving an enormous boost in strength when it was in the black light.
“We have to find another way!” Dong Ji transmitted to Xue Jinghua as he dodged the Night Beast’s attacks.
“We can’t defeat this Night Beast. Since this is the case, let’s break through this black light curtain first!”
Dong Ji said with a voice transmission, “But according to my observations, even if this black light curtain is damaged, it will be repaired by the Night Beast. Therefore, the moment we break it, we have to leave with our family’s prince and princess!”
“But how do we break through this black light curtain?”
Xue Jinghua asked.
“Bring out our trump cards. If we attack together, there is a high chance of breaking this black light curtain!”
Dong Ji responded.
Xue Jinghua knew that there was no better way, so she could only try.
Afterwards, the two communicated and confirmed their positions.
Dong Ji and Xue Jinghua first punched and slashed, forcing the Night Beast to retreat.
Then, the power of the dao realm then surged in Dong Ji’s body.
A mysterious heptagonal symbol condensed behind him, emitting a dazzling white light.
Xue Jinghua also cut her palm, covering the sword in her blood.
Immediately, a blurry sword apparition appeared behind her. Boom!
Dong Ji and Xue Jinghua attacked the black light curtain at the same time.
The black light curtain trembled, then a huge hole was created. “We did it!”
Dong Ji and Xue Jinghua were overjoyed.
Although the two of them had overdrawn their potential and exhausted their bodies, after seeing the black light curtain break, they rushed towards Duan Chaofeng and Mo Lan.
“Your Highness, let’s go!”
Dong Ji instantly flew in front of Duan Chaofeng, Xu Ning, and Zhang He.
After seeing that there were only three people left awake in the Harmony King Mansion’s entourage, Dong Ji carried all three of them and rushed towards the hole in the black light curtain.
At this moment, the black light curtain had begun to repair and shrink under the control of the Night Beast.
The Night Beast also began to chase after them.
Xu Ning had activated the Wind Smoke Gourd and the will of the cyan wolf in the Cyan Wolf Knife to deal with this predicament.
He thought that this would be an irrecoverable situation, but he didn’t expect that Dong Ji and Xue Jinghua would join forces to tear apart the black light curtain.
“We are out!”
The moment the black light curtain was sealed, Dong Ji and Xue Jinghua came out with their people. Dong Ji brought Duan Chaofeng, Xu Ning, and Zhang He. On the other side, Xue Jinghua brought out Mo Lan, Cen Yumou, and Liang Tingang
Cen Yumou and Liang Tingang should have fallen and sank inside the black light curtain.
However, when Mo Lan saw that the two sects had suffered heavy losses this time, she took care of the two of them, preventing them from falling into darkness and brought them out together.
The moment they left the black light curtain, Dong Ji and Xue Jinghua put them into their spatial treasure at the same time.
“The Night Beast has stopped chasing us!”
Dong Ji and Xue Jinghua looked back.
The moment they rushed out of the black light curtain, the Night Beast stopped moving. The Night Beast looked at them with its cold eyes, but it no longer chose to chase after them.
“The mistake in the information this time really made us suffer heavy losses. When we return to the mansion, I’m going to kill the guy who delivered the information!”
Xue Jinghua’s tone was cold.
Dong Ji glanced at her without saying anything.
After all, the news was secretly obtained from the Promise King Mansion.
“What should we do next?”
Xue Jinghua took the initiative to ask Dong Ji.
The predicament just now forced them to cooperate.
“Leave this island and return to State Wansheng!”
Dong Ji immediately made a decision.
“Let’s return together!”
Xue Jinghua suggested.
Dong Ji agreed.
They all knew very well that compared to the strength of the groups before the two sides arrived here, they had both suffered immense casualties.
Especially Dong Ji and Xue Jinghua as they had both overdrawn their strength just now. The Endless Sea was full of dangers, so the most important thing now was to continue to work together to protect the prince and the princess.
Afterwards, Dong Ji and Xue Jinghua quickly fled to the sea.
Inside the black light curtain.
After letting Dong Ji, Xue Jinghua, and the others go, the Night Beast looked at the people who had fallen into the darkness and lost consciousness. It activated its bloodline power again.
The black light curtain dissipated, turning into a black fog that covered a thousand meters.
The black fog picked up the people lying on the ground and gathered them around the Night Beast, condensing into a hundred meter dome.
After that, the Night Beast flapped its wings and disappeared into the distance along with the black fog.
In the distance, Chu He and the others who were hiding in the dark were already sweating.
‘This Night Beast is so strong!
Chu He and the others, who had been concealed by the secret treasure and were observing everything that was happening in the black light curtain, had all witnessed the terrifying strength and the strange abilities of the Night Beast.
‘Black Light Zone, Black Fog Bug Beast, Night Depravity… How many abilities does this Night Beast have? The six apex demon beasts, this is too terrifying…’
Before watching the battle, Chu He wanted to wait until both sides were injured before taking advantage of the situation.
But now, Chu He no longer wanted to capture this Night Beast.
In Chu He’s opinion, if they wanted to capture or kill this adult Night Beast, one had to be at least in the eighth stage or even the ninth stage of dao realm.
If this Night Beast were to mature to its peak, unless a large number of dao realm ninth stage masters surrounded it, or if a legendary grandmaster took action, no one would be its opponent.
“The bloodline of an apex demon beast is truly terrifying…”
Lie Ying sighed and looked at Chu He. “Master Chu He, what should we do next?”
Chu He almost didn’t hesitate. “We have to get out of here. We are no match for this Night Beast.”
Chu He changed the topic. “We have been preparing for this trip for a long time. It is a shame to give up like this. Although we can’t capture the Night Beast, we have other prey…”
A cold light appeared in Chu He’s eyes.
Lie Ying suddenly realized. “Master Chu He, we are going to attack the people of the Harmony King Mansion and the Promise King Mansion?”
Chu He’s eyes flashed. “The people from the Harmony King Mansion and the Promise King Mansion have been greatly injured in the previous fight with the Night Beast, and now their overall strength has been greatly reduced. According to my observation just now, the two high level dao realm masters who escaped were both injured. Moreover, the few of us are in our best condition, so it is not difficult to deal with them.”
“Plus, those two prince and princess must have a lot of good stuff on them.”
Chu He stopped talking. “Get ready to chase after them!”
On the Endless Sea.
A giant ship departed from the edge of the island, sailing alone on the sea.
This was their transportation tool used to escape back to State Wansheng.
Compared to when they came here grandiosely with two fleets, the current sight was quite desolate.
Xu Ning and the others had been released from the spatial treasure and were currently on the ship.
However, they all consciously separated themselves from the people of the Promise King Mansion.
Although they were forced to cooperate, Duan Chaofeng and Mo Lan still did not shake hands and make up due to their past grudges.
‘The sensory deprivation on my body has finally subsided…’
Xu Ning, who was in the cabin, finally felt relieved.
After coming out of the black light curtain, the force began to gradually fade.
Xu Ning hadn’t experienced such a life-and-death crisis in a long time. When he thought back to what had just happened, he felt a little scared.
“Xu Ning!” The door of the cabin room Xu Ning was in was pushed open and Zhang He walked in.
Zhang He had recovered a lot. Although he was still injured, the power of deprivation in his body had also disappeared.
“This is from His Highness.”
Zhang He handed Xu Ning a storage ring. “These are some pills His Highness took from his spatial secret treasure for you to heal your injuries.”
“I really have to thank His Highness.”
Xu Ning didn’t stand on ceremony. He took the ring and checked it.
Xu Ning sensed that a large number of medicinal pills and resources were stored in this storage ring. He roughly estimated that it would amount to more than 2 million units of energy if he turned them all into energy.
“His Highness is too generous. These pills can heal my current injuries a hundred times over.”
Xu Ning responded.
In the battle just now, apart from the power of deprivation, he did not suffer much injuries.
“This is because the resources carried by His Highness are limited… His Highness said that when we return to the mansion, he will reward you greatly!” After surviving the disaster, Zhang He felt relieved.
After experiencing this crisis, Zhang He’s understanding of martial arts had improved again, which also shortened the time it would take for him to advance to the seventh stage of the dao realm.
“Xu Ning, in the black light curtain, your performance was noticed by His Highness. If I’m not wrong, after returning to the mansion, in addition to the resources, His Highness will definitely promote your status!”
When Zhang He said this, he was happy for Xu Ning.
He had known Xu Ning for a while, so he had a good impression of Xu Ning.
Especially after fighting side by side and experiencing a life-and-death crisis together, the friendship between the two had deepened.
“Thank you for your blessings, Brother Zhang!” Xu Ning chuckled.
Xu Ning unconsciously changed his way of addressing Zhang He.
In fact, Xu Ning was not interested in improving his status, but after his status improved, the Swallow Heron Sect would also benefit in turn.
After the Swallow Heron Sect opened up the resources trading channels, the resources gathered by the Swallow Heron Sect would also provide back to him.
This way, he would also indirectly gain practical benefits.
Although the Harmony King Mansion suffered a lot from this operation, Xu Ning and Zhang He gained more than they gave.
It could be said that Xu Ning and Zhang He were the few beneficiaries of this mission.
