"Well yes, I said that I would repay the debt to show my gratitude," The person standing before him said with indifference.
Su Yu lowered his finger and sighed a little. "Now is the worst possible time for that!"
The woman standing before him was Wuxin, the Wuxin Helm Leader who wanted to repay his kindness with her life.
Su Yu was in a precarious situation. For Wuxin to be here, her words of sacrificing for Su Yu might come true.
"You dont have to worry too much about me. I have already begun preparing since you entered the Asura Forbidden Lands half a month ago, just in case," Wuxin said. "If I save you, the debt between us will be written off entirely, and I can leave the Lost Nation with my mind at peace.."
She intended to leave because she was too ashamed to face the Mistress of Saint Lady Temple after all.
At this point, it will be impossible for Su Yu to drive her away. He said, "Thank you for the trouble!"
Wuxin nodded calmly. She helped Su Yu up and left the place quickly.
Soon enough, a stone cave hidden in the deep forest appeared before them.
"This cave was opened up by the Wizard Tribe as a temporary base during the war between the God Realm and the Wizard Tribe. This cave goes directly underground and extends in all directions. Once we enter the cave, it would take quite some time for our enemies to track us down," Wuxin explained. As she spoke, she gently swept the dust in front of the cave house away and let Su Yu in.
"Wait, hold on," Su Yu said with difficulty. He gathered the little amount of divine power he had left, erased the footprints outside the cave, and got rid of their aura.
Lastly, he deliberately shook down a layer of dust from above to cover up the traces of the cave.
After looking at what he did, Wuxin couldnt help but gasp with admiration. "Such amazing attention to detail. When it comes to handling things in the face of danger, I am not as skilled as you, even though I am an old antique who lived through countless years of life."
The inside of the cave was like a completely different world. It went deep into the ground with intricate and complex underground passages. Along the way, Su Yu found at least tens of thousands of passages of different sizes. He had no clue where they led.
The Blood Demons would likely have to pay a big price if they wanted to catch up with them.
After they chose an unassuming passageway, Su Yu and Wuxin entered to recuperate in an abandoned stone chamber.
"I have some good healing elixir here with me," Wuxin said.
Su Yu shook his head. "The Power of Asura that invaded my body is the crux of the matter, these injuries are secondary to that. What I need now is time."
"How much time do you need?"
"Just one day will suffice."
Wuxins gaze was steady and calm. "I will protect you so you may recuperate in peace."
Su Yu nodded. He activated Milky Way Star Sand and focused on extracting the Power of Asura out of his body.
Half a day later, the Power of Asura in Su Yus body had weakened significantly, and his injured body had finally started mending itself.
However, he would still need another half a day to return to his peak state.
However, movements could now be heard from outside of the passageway. It seemed like a live spirit had passed by the house and accidentally bumped into the metal objects that were scattered all over the ground.
Wuxins gaze turned fierce suddenly. She stood up immediately, walked to the front of the house, and leaned against the door. She held her breath and focused on listening to the movements outside.
Suddenly, Su Yu tensed up as well. With his injuries not fully healed, he would be an easy target for the three ferocious beasts if he was forced to fight.
Suddenly, Wuxin managed to open the door. She struck forward abruptly with astonishing sorcery energy in her hand.
The live spirit outside of the house never expected someone to be in an underground passageway that was abandoned long ago!
With one blow, Wuxin killed him before he could even let out a scream!
Su Yu walked over to take a look only to be surprised by who Wuxin had killed.
The live spirit that came was not any of the three ferocious beasts, but a soldier from the God Realm!
"An enemy from the God Realm?" Wuxin was just as surprised as Su Yu. "Why would they come to this underground passageway?"
Su Yu thought for a moment then said in a deep voice, "I am afraid we need to leave this place immediately. Its not safe here, either!"
Wuxin also knew how dangerous it was for someone from the God Realm to be here. She slightly nodded and said, "Youre right, we cannot stay here for much longer. Lets leave through another passageway. Itll lead us to the outside of Fan Capital so we will be able to get to safety as soon as possible."
No matter how brash and insolent the three ferocious beasts were, they wouldnt dare to brazenly break into the Fan Capital.
The several masters and many magical treasures guarding the Fan Capital wouldve been enough for them to have just a one-way trip.
"I have recovered about thirty percent of my combat power, so there shouldnt be many problems as long as we do not encounter the three ferocious beasts," Su Yu said.
After discussing their plan to leave, they immediately made their move.
Shortly after they left, another soldier from the God Realm rushed over quietly. He squatted down to examine the injuries on the deceased soldier. With a stern gaze, he took out a jade pendant immediately and said softly, "Someone from the Wizard Tribe broke into the underground passageway. Please inform the commander immediately to seal off all major exits and prevent anyone from the Wizard Tribe from divulging any information from here!"
Two hours later, they reached the end of the passageway.
The dazzling sun outside made it difficult for them to open the eyes.
Wuxin supported Su Yu by his arm. She was about to make a move before she realized that she could not pull him away, as if his feet were planted firmly on the ground.
She turned around to see that Su Yu looked wary of something. His eyes turned pale white, and there seemed to be a mysterious feeling of him being able to see everything.
"There are enemies out there planning an ambush. The God Realms soldiers have set up an ambush here!" Su Yus eyes shone with a shrewd gleam.
He did not think that once they found out that he is a wanted man by the Four Great Empires, the God Realms soldiers would be cordial and polite to him.
Thats not to mention that someone from the Wizard Tribe was right by his side.
Su Yu looked away with a solemn look on his face. "Lets look for another exit. Two Level-Three deities are guarding this one. If I am in my peak condition, we can still barge our way through together, but it is too dangerous now."
Wuxin said, "There are other passageways"
Before she could finish speaking, both Wuxin and Su Yu began trembling at the same time.
A wave of brutal and tyrannical energy rushed towards them as if it was trapping them there firmly.
Another wave followed immediately after the first, and not long after that, a third one occurred as well.
They have located Su Yus position and were speeding over.
"They are here! They managed to find me after all," Su Yu was not surprised at all. As there were still remnants of the Power of Asura in him, it was only a matter of time for the guards to find him.
At least they were delayed by half a day.
Su Yu turned towards the exit and gritted his teeth, "We can only take a risk and barge through! Charge!"
Without regard to whether they lived or died, Wuxin stood in front of Su Yu. Without turning her head, she said, "I will take care of the two Level-Three deities outside. You just escape alone."
Her tone was calm and casual as if what she was saying was a normal thing to talk about.
If she took care of them, she would have to stay there forever.
As he walked around Wuxin and stood in front of her, Su Yu said, "If thats how I escape, then I dont think I could ever accept it. All Im asking for is to have no qualms in this life."
When the space ring on his finger flashed, a jade tombstone fell into his hands.
As he stroked the tombstone, Su Yu said grudgingly, "If my guess is correct, whether we get out of trouble today or not is entirely up to this tombstone."
Wuxin felt that something was off and looked at the tombstone with a puzzled expression. She did not sense anything special about the tombstone; it felt just like any other normal jade material.
"What is this?" Wuxin said in surprise.
Su Yu calmly said, "A weapon of mass destruction that cant tell friend from foe!"
