“This is it!”
Such a strong presence of death, how did the undead get into the city!”
“Surround the place quick, surround the place…”
A loud noise came from outside the residence, as if many Magicians had arrived.
Not long after, milky white light rays shone into the sky. The purifying light shining upon the place thoroughly cleansed away the presence of death.
“Damn it, they’re here so quick!” cursed Fang Gu anxiously.
Fang Gu glanced at his surroundings and realized that he had only killed around seven or eight of the villagers. On top of that, those who had driven his people away, including Chief Xie Sang, were still alive!
Fang Gu glared at Liu Ru viciously. If it weren’t for this woman interfering with his business, the Magician that had become an idiot would not be able to hold his living dead off…
Since they were inside the city, the number of undead that Fang Mu managed to sneak inside was very limited. If they were in the wild, as long as the Magician with Lightning and Fire was not around, he would have had no problem killing everyone here!
“I would like to see if you can protect them forever!” Fang Gu knew that the place was surrounded by the City Hunters. He immediately backed off and hid inside the thick presence of death.
“I won’t need to protect them forever, if I kill a maniac like you here right now!” spat Liu Ru coldly.
“That depends whether you have the strength to do so!” Fang Gu’s voice came from the thick cloud of death. However, when Liu Ru moved to stop Fang Gu, he had eerily vanished into thin air.
It was obvious that Fang Gu had already prepared to escape beforehand. After all, he knew the City Hunters were not to be underestimated.
Liu Ru did not pursue further. She was fairly injured herself. She had given her best by protecting the kids and the few old villagers.
Liu Ru went up to Xie Sang, whose arms were torn off. She didn’t know how he had managed to survive after being chased by two living dead.
“Chief, are you alright?” Liu Ru reached out her hand to help the man.
The chief immediately shrugged and wore a terrified expression when he saw Liu Ru, whose mouth was still stained with blood.
He had witnessed the scene of Liu Ru killing the zombie after she bit it with her fangs. On top of that, the chief clearly remembered that Gouzi did mention how the woman was still alive even when her heart was stabbed right through. Xie Sang initially thought Gouzi was just making it up since he had been acting strange lately, yet the woman turned out to be one of the living dead, too!
The chief had only left the village a few times. He was totally clueless about the existence of Blood Tribe. He was utterly terrified when he thought of undead, living dead, or anything similar.
Liu Ru’s pale face wore a self-mocking grin when she saw the terror on the chief’s face. She quickly backed off a little.
The sound of footsteps approached the entrance of the residence, followed by a group of Hunters in uniforms barging into the place…
The Hunters were startled when they saw the corpses scattered across the place. They never thought the situation would be so bizarre.
“It’s undead… no, it feels more like living dead,” the experienced captain with thick eyebrows immediately made the call.
“It looks like they have escaped,” said a female Hunter in a red robe.
“You guys there, go and save the survivors. The others, search the place and see if there’s any undead left behind,” the captain with thick brows walked up to the chief and the villagers.
The captain tried to ask what happened, yet the Chief was still wearing a blank face.
Su Xiaoluo was relatively collected. She quickly asked the Hunters to search for the kids that had run away, just so nothing dangerous would happen to them.
“You’re quite injured. Should I ask someone to send you to the hospital?” asked the captain concernedly as he went up to Liu Ru.
“It’s fine, it won’t be…”
“She’s undead, she’s undead. She’s got fangs!” Chief Xie Sang burst out screaming before Liu Ru could finish her sentence.
“Chief!” yelled Su Xiaoluo, trying to stop the chief’s outrageous cry.
“She’s undead, she’s the same as them. She’s going to kill us, all of us…” Xie Sang pointed his finger at Liu Ru and screamed in terror.
The captain was stunned for a moment. He immediately inspected the wounds on Liu Ru’s body and discovered that there was no trace of blood despite her serious injuries…
The female Hunter fixed her gaze on Liu Ru too and said coldly, “No wonder her mouth is stained with blood! It isn’t even hers; someone, take her down!”
It all happened so quickly. Liu Ru never thought Xie Sang would fall out with her all of a sudden. When she saw the female Hunter’s figure emitting a golden glow, she subconsciously backed off as she was extremely vulnerable to the burn from the strong light…
The captain was convinced that the woman was not human when he saw her inhuman speed!
“Kill her, such a vicious woman!” the captain quickly assumed that Liu Ru was responsible for all the dead bodies around the place. Every Hunter in the residence immediately saw Liu Ru as their target!
“Stop, hold on, she was helping us… she didn’t kill the people!” yelled Su Xiaoluo.
“It doesn’t matter what she did, the City Hunters have authority to kill anything that’s not classified as a human!” The Huntress showed no mercy. As soon as she was sure that Liu Ru was not human, she had no intention of letting her live!
Chains of ice burst out from the ground and lunged at Liu Ru rapidly. The chains knocked Liu Ru down to the ground as she was leaping into the air and quickly entangled her.
Flames swept through the darkness. A giant Fiery Fist came right after the first attack. Liu Ru, still entangled in the ice chains, had no chance of dodging the attack. She was sent flying by the Fiery Fist into the houses, which completely collapsed into debris.
Before the flames from the Fiery Fist dissipated, a raging gust surrounded the debris, forming wind walls around the place and crushed everything inside it into pieces. Liu Ru had no time to rise to her feet, and was immediately dragged into the wind. Her weak figure seemed miniscule, like a stalk of grass.
Zhang Xiaohou and Su Xiaoluo tried to help when they saw the situation, yet there were simply too many Hunters. One Intermediate Spell after another was cast continuously. The Rock Barrier that Zhang Xiaohou summoned to protect Liu Ru was instantly crushed into pieces.
“If you two try to interfere again, we’ll take you both down, too! The City Hunters will never allow something like her to exist in the city! You’ll be considered a threat if you continue to protect her!” the captain snapped at Zhang Xiaohou and Su Xiaoluo.
“Leave them to me,” a Huntress in a red robe smiled. Dark shadows covered her hands, and she flung them out, firing two Giant Shadow Spikes at Zhang Xiaohou and Su Xiaoluo.
Both of them were nailed by the Giant Shadow Spikes to the spot. Zhang Xiaohou’s mind was immediately sealed by the Spike, preventing him from casting any further spells!
