1506 A Woman Who Thought She Was Smar
As the descendant of the Empyrean Goddess, Xuan Qing was very proud of her identity. Facing this enormous calamity, she felt it was her responsibility to deal with it.
She was going to follow in the footsteps of the Empyrean Goddess to try to turn the tide and save the Black Yellow Great World.
So if she acted indifferently when learning that someone was in danger, it would go against her sense of morals.
Most important, Xuan Qing and Jiang Chen were not sure whether it was Human Demonic Emperors or Earth Demonic Emperors that were manipulating the demons.
If it was the former, even if there were a great amount, they would be able to deal with them.
Following the route on which they had run into trouble, the two found the traces of the demons.
They traveled a little further on the route and heard the sound of people fighting.
"Luckily, it's just like what happened to us."
The trap had not completely worked. The plotter of the scheme had not acted yet.
As long as they warned those people of the danger, everything could be resolved.
When they turned the corner, they saw 30-odd people fighting the demons.
It was quite rare that a team would have so many people in the Demonic Abyss.
The size of a team restricted their abilities to kill demons. The bigger the team, the less demons they could kill.
These 30-odd people had only gathered together temporarily.
It turned out that there was more than one trap in this area. No matter which direction you chose, you would always find demons and have to eventually change your route.
For this reason, many people had gathered here. It only meant one thing: they had almost completely fallen into the trap.
"These demons are countless."
"It doesn't feel right. We should get out of here as soon as possible!"
These people were quite alert. They kind of knew something was wrong, and they wanted to leave as soon as possible.
However, every exit they could find was a dead end. If they took any of them, they would be trapped here forever.
If they wanted to survive, they must go toward the area where there were the most demons.
"Guys, someone is manipulating these demons. They are driving you into a desperate situation. If you want to get out of this, you must go southeast."
Jiang Chen and Xuan Qing had arrived and started shouting toward those people with a great amount of demons in between them.
Those people exchanged looks. No matter whether it was true or not, they were simply shocked by the mere thought that there were still good-hearted people in the Demonic Abyss in this era.
"The southeast is the most packed with demons. Do you want us to seek death?"
Most people did not act. They were hesitating.
"Jiang Chen, is that you?!"
However, someone was excited to hear Jiang Chen's voice.
Jiang Chen had had a cold demeanor, but showed a big smile after hearing that voice.
The Wolf Tooth Team was trapped in there too. So they had really made the right decision to come.
"Jiang Chen, we believe you, but the five of us can't force a way out!" said Du Yongbo anxiously.
By then, it seemed impossible to break out of the encirclement of the demons.
"For those who believe me, act with the Wolf Tooth Team. We'll collaborate from outside," Jiang Chen said loudly.
Soon, he heard Du Yongbo mobilize the others.
But, unfortunately, only a few people responded. It required quite some courage to dash into the demon crowd.
Some people did not think Jiang Chen would come here specifically to con them into seeking death, so they chose to believe him, but there were only a few.
Some people even flew toward where they thought was the way out.
Jiang Chen sneered. He threw the demons another glance. Then he decided to break out of the encirclement with the Wolf Tooth Team.
"Wait for me outside. We'll go all out to break out of the encirclement. We'll meet up later."
"No problem," Xuan Qing agreed decisively.
Holding the Red Cloud Sword in hand, Jiang Chen flew in. The flame had been coated by a layer of golden color. It burned the demons into ashes easily.
He dashed through the encirclement at one go. Jiang Chen met the Wolf Tooth Team and the others.
"For those who want to leave with me, get ready," said Jiang Chen.
"Why don't you break out of the encirclement from where you came in?"
The people there could not help but have doubts when seeing that Jiang Chen was so young and only a Martial Emperor.
"I don't have the time to explain it to you. Just follow me if you trust me."
"We trust you!"
The five members of the Wolf Tooth Team got prepared very quickly.
Jiang Chen had come in only to save them. He did not care whether the other people were dead or alive. Their fates would depend on themselves.
To their surprise, someone stopped them.
It was a woman in a white robe. She was young and pretty, a Martial Arts Saint in the preliminary stage, kind of extraordinary.
"Make way," shouted Jiang Chen.
"Explain yourself. Why should we go in that direction? Do you have any scheme?"
The woman was sizing up Jiang Chen suspiciously.
"What's wrong with you? If you don't trust him, just stay here," Du Yongbo was irritated. He knew how urgent the situation was.
"Huh, you are playing hard to get. You think I can't see through you?" The woman showed a cold smile, as if she had seen through Jiang Chen and others' tricks.
Jiang Chen raised his right hand. Where the sword was pointing was exactly at the woman. He said coldly, "This is your last chance. Make way."
"Explain yourself first. Otherwise that won't happen," the woman answered, raising her eyebrows, quite complacent.
Jiang Chen did not see any anxiety on her face. He realized she did not take the encirclement of the demons seriously at all.
He looked up and saw a man in heavy armor behind the woman.
His energy was quite mighty, like a marvelous mountain. He was staring at Jiang Chen, or, more precisely, at the Red Cloud Sword in his hand, with his sharp black eyes.
He was obviously the woman's bodyguard.
The heavy-armored man was even stronger than Xuan Qing. That was why the woman was fearless.
She even came up to Jiang Chen to try to disclose his trick, thinking she was smart enough to see through him.
Jiang Chen wanted to respond, but tragic screams suddenly came from the correct way out.
Those who had thought they could flee through there had run into the manipulator lurking in the dark.
Jiang Chen's heart sank. He glanced at the southeast. The demons there had formed a thick wall. There was no way they could leave through there.
Then he looked around. The whole group had been surrounded.
Jiang Chen wished he could kill the nosy woman right away, right there.
Outside, Xuan Qing shouted anxiously since she had been waiting for quite some time.
"Don't come in here. Wait for me outside. If anything goes wrong, just escape," Jiang Chen responded.
The Wolf Tooth Team also realized they had missed the timing. They all turned towards the stupid woman, throwing her hideous, angry stares.
The woman still did not think it a big deal. Shrugging her shoulders, she said confidently, "Whatever trick you are playing, today is your lucky day. No matter what demons those are, General Angry Horse will be able to get rid of them without effort."
Then she raised her chin proudly. She looked as if she was doing Jiang Chen and the Wolf Tooth Team a favor.
"Princess, come over here."
However, to her surprise, the heavy-armored man looked very serious at the moment.
The woman was struck dumb. She went back to the heavy-armored man.
"My friend, can you tell me what you know?"
The heavy-armored man looked toward Jiang Chen. He looked as if he valued the latter a lot.
But unfortunately, it was too late for anything.
"Now let's just hope that the manipulator is only a Human Demon."
Jiang Chen did not want to waste his time in speaking about useless things. Shoulder to shoulder, he and the Wolf Tooth Team were looking for the correct way out.
With so many demons there, the only way out was a turn in the corridor, after which they could not see anything clearly.
Even holy awareness could not penetrate these demons, layer upon layer.
