Shi Sheng sat still while watching them panicking. 

Until she could not stand it anymore, she hopped off the tree and pushed the disciples away who were in the way. Ordering them without lifting a finger, “first, suck the venom out of him. Then feed him the antidote every hour. If we can get out of here in three days, then he might be live.”

As everyone thought that she had finished speaking, she then added on casually, “even if he were to live, he’d probably be partially paralyzed. So, the best solution is...” 

Everyone’s attention was focused on Shi Sheng, including Feng Wu.

Shi Sheng’s mouth curled up, showing a nasty smile, and spoke slowly, “kill him.”

Everyone, “...”

Third Miss, this is not a time for jokes! 

Can you have a sense of urgency? 

Someone’s dying!  

“It’s better to just get the pain over with, rather than prolonging the agony. Instead of letting him live a long life in anguish, killing him now is a better solution. If we were to bring him along with us, he might be a burden.”

“Third Miss,” Feng Wu cut Shi Sheng off, looking gloomy, “I promised Wan Quan to get all of you out safely when he entrusted the team to me.”

Feng Wu’s looks were ordinary, so were his personality and cultivation. He was like any usual NPC.

But this statement made Shi Sheng slightly change her opinion about him.

“If you don’t give up on him. Then everyone here might be at risk because of him. Don’t you think that the cons outweigh the pros?”

The others’ expressions changed a bit. They did not have much solidarity.  It was evident from the fact that they gave up that easily on looking for Feng Qing Qing. 

Bringing a person with limited mobility would slow them down tremendously. If they really bumped into something, they might lose their lives because of him. 

There was no way they would put their lives on the line. 

Some of the disciples wanted to say something. Before they could speak a word, the disciple who was bitten cut them off. 

“Mentor Feng Wu, Third Miss is right. I can’t drag you down. You should leave without me.”

“Don’t say a word.” Feng Wu ripped off the bandages on the disciple’s thigh, and the bitten area was blackened. Feng Wu leaned down instantly to suck the blood out. 

Shi Sheng pouted, “retard.”

After the poisoned blood was all sucked out until fresh blood was visible. Feng Wu wrapped the wound up in a bandage, “the male disciples take turns to carry him. Pack your belongings, and let’s go.”

Shi Sheng stared at the pale-faced disciple without a word. 

“Third Miss,” Feng Wu walked to Shi Sheng’s side and called her with a deep and low voice, “you have no idea how hard it is for people like us trying to stay alive.”

“Who gets to live an easy life?” Shi Sheng’s face was full of sarcasm. 

Do you think it's easy to live on the top of the food chain? 

If you don’t work hard and put in the effort, how can you stay atop the food chain?  

“I’m not complaining. I’m just trying to tell Third Miss that I’ll try to help out as much as I possibly can.”

Shi Sheng turned to look at Feng Wu, “oh, why didn’t you look for Feng Qing Qing then?”

Feng Wu’s expression changed slightly and stammered for quite some time. 

Shi Sheng continued, “selfishness is not scary. What’s really scary when you can crown selfishness with a grand excuse.”

Shi Sheng did not hide the fact that she’s selfish. 

As a human, it was normal for her to be selfish.  

Feng Wu lowered his head even further, “Third Miss, when… did you know all about this?”

“This instant.”

Feng Wu was shocked, “Third Miss?”

“So, what’s your relationship with him?”

Initially, Shi Sheng did not want to talk about it, but Feng Wu had to come up to chat with her, even providing the reason to do so. 

In the next second Shi Sheng waved her hand, “it’s okay, you don’t have to say anything. I’m uninterested to know.”

Everyone has their own secrets. She isn’t interested in digging around everyone’s secret.  

……

Feng Wu was relieved that Shi Sheng did not continue questioning him. Now he began to fear Shi Sheng for unknown reasons. 

He thought that Third Miss had seen through everything. 

She was unlike a 16-year-old teenager, but like someone who had experience great ups and downs and seen the foul wind and a rain of blood. 

However, he got rid of these thoughts immediately. How could someone as young as Third Miss experience any of these? 

The team was evidently getting slower due to the injured member. 

Feng Wu was getting more and more anxious as the three days limit was about to pass. He urged everyone to hurry. 

Shi Sheng and some of the disciples were at the back of the group. 

Those disciples were chattering while they were on their way. One moment they were talking about the Feng Family, they then discussed the rank five mystical creature. 

“Strange. We haven’t seen any mystical creatures on our way.” one of the disciples said out of nowhere, “I heard that the outskirt mystical creatures are of low ranks, but they’re quite common here.”

“Why, do you want to see them?” 

“I just wish that I’ll never see them.”

“I thought it’s weird too, but is uncommon.”

“The mating season is here, so they’re probably on a date.” Shi Sheng interjected, “they’re preparing for their sexual happiness. It’s not normal to disappear.”

Those disciples turned around. They were rather speechless, “Third Miss...” 

As a lady, please be watch your language. They’re allowed to talk about this sort of thing as they’re guys, but you’re a lady! 

Where’s your reservation? 

Where’s your image?

“Why are you looking at me? Did I say anything wrong?” Shi Sheng glared back at them.

They shook their heads immediately, “no, nothing...”

One of the disciples suddenly stretched out his hand and stopped the persons behind him, “did you hear anything?”

“What is it?”

“A huge team of them are charging at us.” Shi Sheng got close, smiled lightly, “better run before it’s too late.”

The plot’s going haywire. 

I’m panicking so much. 

This plot is so predictable. It’s the top results of Google. 

Mommy, you don’t have to worry about me getting set up.  

A fluttering sound approached for a distance. The ground began to shake as if thousands of horses were storming at them. 

Those disciples looked at Shi Sheng in dismay.

The team in front of them heard the commotion and stopped. They were all confused, “what’s that sound?”

“What’s going on?”

“It’s coming from behind...” 

Rumbling-

The sound was getting nearer and nearer…

The towering trees in front of them suddenly collapsed from the sky. 

“Ah!” 

“Oh no, run!” Feng Wu quickly ordered, “protect Third Miss.”

By the time they got out from the shock and looked at where Shi Sheng stood. No one was there anymore. 

The familiar figure had already run to the front. 

Everyone, “...” 

They did not have time to complain about it, so they hurriedly followed behind Shi Sheng. No one dared to turn around to look at the source of the earsplitting sound behind them.
