Ye Lang was basically training an unstoppable general for her. Ye Lang was sure Li Yue would return to Soaring Sky sooner or later and finally work under Zhao Yarou.
Ye Lang wouldn’t usually do such a thing but he felt like he owed it to her to give her the best. At the same time, he didn’t think a powerful Zhao Yarou would be a threat to him-- not because he felt like Zhao Yarou couldn’t kill him, he just felt like it was unlikely for them to meet again.
This time was an unexpected event, such a thing wasn’t going to happen again. Ye Lang wasn’t going to return to Soaring Sky again so she would not have the chance to trap him again.
Treat it as a compensation… Wait, what compensation? I don’t owe her anything! This is weird.
Ye Lang shook his head, shaking out his messy thoughts as he continued adding ingredients into the pot. The soup seemed to have changed, it didn’t look like the soup he usually drank.
At this moment, not many had their attention on Ye Lang, most of them were focused on Li Yue. If they paid attention, they would notice that Ye Lang was actually the one that was going to be more difficult to deal with.
Some people tried to catch him unawares but when they approached, they would be hit by a fist made of earth hurtling at them from the ground. Yeap, an earthen fist from the ground.
This would tell them that Ye Lang, a harmless-looking person, was no easy target either. At the same time, his magical (alchemy) abilities must be very impressive to be able to control the earth element without him making any physical movements.
These people were still not sure that Ye Lang was using alchemy because this attack could be a magic attack too.
Thank goodness for their confusion, so Ye Lang’s identity was not exposed. No one would relate a magician to Ye Lang’s name, when he was a well-known alchemist.
There were suddenly many cries of anger. Ye Lang did not have to look to know that Li Yue had already successfully killed the general. Right now, Li Yue was a person who could infiltrate the enemy’s ranks to kill the general directly. Ye Lang had already anticipated this.
All he wanted to know was how injured she was and if she’d improved!
“Not bad, you’ve improved a lot today.” Ye Lang nodded, “Looks like we’ll have to prepare to clean up the mess…”
Ye Lang removed the pot from the fire and poured its contents into a bowl. He passed Li Yue the bowl to see her covered in blood. It was unclear if it was her blood or her enemy’s blood.
“I’m fine, I’ll rest when I’ve killed everyone!” she muttered with no expression on her face. It was the same in her eyes-- there was no emotion.
As long as the Grey Wolf battalion did not retreat, she would continue fighting even if she was already injured. The longer she fought, the more exhausting it would be for her.
Should they continue?
The Grey Wolf battalion saw her kill the general, it was as if she had killed a god. At this point, the fear in them had reached a breaking point but they did not retreat. The rage and passion in them had not faded, plus they could tell Li Yue was getting weaker.
Hell yeah, they should continue!
“My brothers, the Sorceress doesn’t look like she’ll last long. We must avenge the general, avenge our dead brothers!”
In a moment, the army was roaring with passion once again because they had a glimmer of hope. They were also a very powerful group now-- the most desperate army was the most powerful.
Li Yue slashed and sliced through every person, then dodged the attacks coming at her from every angle. She was now relying on her instincts to move, her capabilities had reached a new level. This battle helped her learn a lot, her inner capabilities after this would greatly increase.
When he saw this, Ye Lang started to smile. He understood that Li Yue’s capabilities were going to skyrocket once again. He hoped it would.
But before that, Li Yue still had to suffer for it.
Li Yue felt a long weapon slicing across her back, forming a long cut. When she felt it, she immediately killed the people in front and thrust her sword behind her, stabbing the person who injured her to death.
This thrust did not require her to turn her head. It was as if she had eyes at the back of her head and her sword seemed invisible. No one saw it move, the person behind her could not dodge in time.
Incidents like this only increased as time passed. However, the number of injuries she suffered increased too. She was slowly losing blood and strength… but she did not frown, only focusing on killing the enemies in front.
Everyone could tell that she wasn’t going to last long. Every slash could be her last. It looked like she was going to collapse immediately.
The soldiers grew more and more excited. There was hope for success! They had to fight harder and the Sorceress would be defeated!
But this went on for a while. And then a while more.
When someone realised something was wrong, at that point there was only around a hundred of them left!
Li Yue was still standing, like she was never going to fall. At this moment, they felt a deep fear in their bones.
“A monster, she’s a monster!” someone screamed hysterically, sprinting towards a city far away.
The remaining people started to run too. They thought there was no meaning if they stayed anyway. Of course, there was a portion of them who were still there to kill her.
These people were the ones who wanted to take the risk, the ones who were not satisfied. What if the moment they ran away was the moment Li Yue collapsed? Then their efforts would’ve been wasted.
“Sorceress, today, death will either come upon you, or us!” they roared as if to inject confidence into themselves as if this would scare Li Yue.
At this moment, they heard a voice. It was a very calm voice, yet it was enough to send them to hell because they remembered there was another person they’d forgotten.
