White wolves again!
Things happened too quickly. They only saw a snow-white shadow rising into the sky, rushing straight towards the four like the wind.
Yan Changqing shouted fiercely, and instinctively opened his arms, holding the children in front of him tightly in his arms. Helian Rongchuan flashed in front of them and pulled out his machete with a swoosh. While bending over and dodging, he felt a snow-white shadow grazing his scalp and rushing past.
A cold light appeared in his amber pupils, and Helian Rongchuan waved his knife without even thinking about it!
With a scream, a white wolf fell to the ground, its belly was dismembered and blood was pouring out. It was still struggling unwillingly in the pool of blood with its wolf claws. Immediately after hearing a whistle in the darkness, more white wolves rushed over, with white teeth and fearless eyes, as if determined to tear everyone to pieces.
The four of them drew their knives one after another, slashing left and right, and fell into the fight.
The white wolves were different from human beings. They did not attack following common logic and they did not spare their bodies. When one companion fell, they didn’t even hesitate for a moment. They directly stepped on the bloody fur of their companions, using their teeth as blades and their claws as knives, and rushed towards them viciously.
Yan Changqing held his attention and his long sword, never losing his focus even when surrounded by wolves. Just as worthy of praise, Helian Rongchuan stuck to his back, protecting each other. In a short time, the two repelled the ferocious wolves around them.
However, Xiang Yu’s situation was not very good. After all, Wei Jin was a scholar, and his fighting skills can only scare an outsider who didn’t know anything. In addition, he had an injury to his leg. When attacked by a pack of wolves, he immediately shows his cowardice. Although he gritted his teeth, he was still powerless. How smart were these white wolves? Once they found this weakness, they immediately rushed up. Seeing that Wei Jin was in danger, Xiang Yu stepped forward quickly, protecting him with his left hand, and slashing the attacking wolves with a sword in his right hand, with cold sweat on his forehead.
Seeing that their situation was unfavourable, Yan Changqing shouted in a low voice, “You take the children and retreat first, we will follow up behind!”
“General!” Xiang Yu was stunned and was about to refuse.
With the two of them, fighting against so many wolves, wouldn’t it be sending themselves to die?!
Yan Changqing launched an offensive, slashing the throat of a white wolf with a sword, and dazzling blood suddenly splattered on his fair face and neck.
“Military orders must be obeyed, you dare to disobey?”
Yan Changqing spoke without turning his head. He held the scabbard and blocked another white wolf’s claws.
It was very dangerous, one step later and these sharp claws would rip Helian Rongchuan’s skin open.
Helian Rongchuan was quick with his eyes and slashed at the white wolf who was trying to attack from behind Yan Changqing. He rushed towards Xiang Yu angrily and said, “Why don’t you quickly take the little imperial doctor away? The people of Qinchuan are still waiting for his medicine!”
Xiang Yu gritted his teeth. His eyes fell on the wound on Wei Jin’s calf. Finally, he made up his mind to carry Wei Jin and retreat with the dozens of weak children.
The strong fragrance of flowers came in bursts. Yan Changqing and Helian Rongchuan were fighting hard, and they had no time to smell the calm breeze. At this time, they felt dizzy again, and it seemed they were going to have hallucinations again. Yan Changqing bit the tip of his tongue fiercely, and a burst of sweet pain hit him. He calmed down and said solemnly, “Release the fire, hurry!”
Helian Rongchuan immediately understood. With a wave of his hand, a cluster of flames fell to the ground, and in an instant, It ignited the Meng Xiantan all over the ground into a sea of fire.
In the raging fire, the floral fragrance faded a lot.
Bright flames illuminated the darkness in the underground palace. The white wolves looked at the large sea of flowers that had been burned, and the white hairs all over their bodies stood up like steel needles. The largest white wolf at the front gave Yan Changqing and Helian Rongchuan a fierce look, raised their necks, and let out a mournful howl.
With the long howl of the wolf, and the slightly trembling tail sound, Helian Rongchuan couldn’t help being a little surprised.
Why does this voice sound like the cry of a white wolf?
“You—how dare you!” With a shrill shout, the sound of sharp blades slicing through the air suddenly came, and Yan Changqing immediately blocked it with a sword.
Yan Changqing’s long sword collided with a long, narrow and sharp soft sword. He saw that the soft sword was like a dexterous silver snake and immediately took advantage of the force to wind up along Yan Changqing’s scabbard. He twisted Yan Changqing’s silver sword into several pieces.
A white wolf mask stood very close, and dark green eyes emerged from the hideous mask, like two clusters of flaming phosphorous fires.
Sure enough, it was him!
“How dare you?!” The great witch doctor shouted, his figure almost turning crazy, he slashed over regardless: “Go to h*ll! You will all be buried with the dead!”
Yan Changqing blocked the great witch doctor’s blow with the scabbard and took a step back. Against Helian Rongchuan’s back, Helian Rongchuan looked anxious. While killing the wolves in front of him, he turned his head and said, “How are you! Are you injured?”
“It’s nothing.” He threw away the broken sword in his hand. With a flash of cold light, the soft sword of the great witch-doctor stabbed towards Yan Changqing’s waist and abdomen with an unstoppable offensive.
Yan Changqing glanced at it, then saw that the silver soft sword was made of unknown material, thin as a cicada’s wings, and unusually sharp. But how sharp was it? Yan Changqing suddenly raised his eyes and showed a faint smile to the eyes under the mask.
The great witch doctor couldn’t help but be stunned for a moment. Death was imminent, what is this man smiling at!
However, in a flash, he didn’t have time to think and saw that two bright lights like lightning suddenly slashed down in front of him, and his wrist holding the sword was shocked for a while. He could no longer hold the soft sword. With a clank, the soft sword fell to the ground, and broke into three pieces!
Yan Changqing’s face was as cold as frost. He had a thin, sharp machete in his left hand. The great witch-doctor only glanced at it, and couldn’t help but be startled. His soft sword was not of extraordinary quality, but it was broken by such a sword? What was even more terrifying was that this machete didn’t even have a crack after such a heavy blow?
Helian Rongchuan laughed and raised the machete in his hand that was the same as Yan Changqing’s: “Now know whose sword is more powerful?”
Immediately afterwards, he rushed to the exit.
Another shrill whistle sounded.
When the white wolves heard the sound, they immediately turned around and chased the two of them.
The great witch doctor narrowed his eyes, took a few steps back under the cover of the white wolves, opened his arms like a bat and suddenly attacked the retreating children!
For this Meng Xiantan, who can only be supported by the blood of a virgin, he had exhausted all his efforts. Now that it has been destroyed by these people, he will never forgive them! Not a single one can be forgiven!
Xiang Yu turned around abruptly and saw that the great witch-doctor was holding a short blade in his right hand, his left hand was like a claw, his eyes were ruthless and decisive, and he could rush over in just a few steps. He lifted his sword to block. Wei Jin was hurt, so he shouted for the little ones to step back. However, there were too many children around them, and under the sudden change in the situation, the two of them alone could not resist. Especially the youngest children, who were already frightened by the ferocious white wolves, when they saw the great witch-doctor pounce on them again, they couldn’t tell if it was a ghost or a person. They were so frightened that their legs were shaking and they could no longer move.
In the screaming, the young child’s pupils shrank, then a decisive figure suddenly appeared in those scared pupils!
Yan Changqing used all his strength to hug these young children who had no time to escape. At that moment, Yan Changqing had no time to draw a knife to fight back and only turned his head stubbornly, preparing to block the fatal blow of the great witch-doctor with fearless eyes and flesh and blood.
But this blow did not fall.
Just one step away from Yan Changqing, the great witch-doctor suddenly stopped his offensive, and his wide and elegant black robe slowly fell, like a blackbird with closed wings.
“You’re… very much like him.” The great witch doctor looked into Yan Changqing’s eyes quietly.
Many, many years ago, there was a boy in white who looked at him with such stubborn eyes. How fearless, how pure, what a pair of beautiful eyes, just like the cleanest purest snow on the top of Baicang Mountain.
But now, having those eyes take another look at him, even if it’s just a glance, has become a luxury.
Yan Changqing was stunned for a moment, not understanding what the great witch-doctor meant. It was only one tiny bit more and he would have won, why?
The great witch-doctor shook his head slightly, and took another look at Yan Changqing: “But that isn’t too similar.”
For some reason, Yan Changqing heard a bit of sadness in the voice of the great witch-doctor. However, before he could think about it, a gust of wind swept through, and the great witch-doctor groaned and spat out a mouthful of blood.
The white wolf mask fell to the ground with a snap, revealing a pale face. The messy long hair covered most of his profile. The great witch doctor was startled, and his eyes turned sadly.
Helian Rongchuan pulled the machete out of the great witch doctor’s ribs, his face as cold as ice.
But the great witch doctor didn’t look at him. In his green pupils, the reflection was full of the sea of Meng Xiantan that burned more and more intensely.
Petals whiter than snow, stamens brighter than blood, the Meng Xiantan that he had spent so much time planting, the Meng Xiantan he had waited for so long to bloom, vanished into nothing in the blink of an eye.
“Only one step away…just one step away…” The great witch doctor muttered to himself, lowering his head to cover the incision between his abdomen, but bright red blood continued to flow from his fingers.
“Unfortunately, there is no more chance.”
At the feet of the great witch-doctor, there were only three or four Meng Xiantan that had not yet been affected by the fire. But these few plants did not bloom, they were just snow-white, heavy buds. The corner of the great witch doctor’s mouth raised into a despairing smile, and with his bloody palms, he uprooted the few Meng Xiantan.
Yan Changqing and Helian Rongchuan couldn’t help being stunned. They just saw that at the moment when the blood of the great witch-doctor touched the few short-lived Meng Xiantan, the flower buds that were about to bloom were like a shy girl slowly raising its head.
“Heh, heh, heh!” The great witch doctor held the few remaining Meng Xiantan plants tightly in his hands. As far as he could see, the scorched earth on the ground was either trampled into mud or burned into dead branches with the Meng Xiantan, and the corpses of white wolves were scattered across the pool of blood. The great witch doctor suddenly burst into a peal of mournful and miserable laughter.
Amidst the laughter, all the white wolves stopped attacking, raised their heads and silently looked at the great witch-doctor.
Suddenly, there was only a piercing long whistle, and all the white wolves gathered around the great witch-doctor. The great witch doctor’s hand stroked the largest of the white wolves and his bloody lips whispered: “Take me to see him for one …… last time.”
The white wolf cried. It turned very docile and lowered his head. The great witch doctor leaned on the white wolf with some difficulty. The white wolf raised his neck and let out a long whistle, carrying the great witch doctor and jumping up, leading all the white wolves to rush out like a white whirlwind.
