Chapter 741: Another Ambush
Translator:Nyoi-Bo StudioEditor:Nyoi-Bo Studio
“Tsk.” Chen Lin spat to the side. “The Holy Court is still in such a sorry state?”
Miranda’s brows were tightly furrowed. He realized that the group of demon hunters had been waiting here for an ambush.
“Why are you all here?”
Chen Lin’s face was filled with disdain.
He did not have a good impression of the people of the Holy Court. He sneered in his heart, and his face was filled with even more disdain. “You’re asking me? I should be the one asking you this question. Why are you all here?
In fact, Chen Lin did not know what had happened.
He had only listened to Fang Heng’s plan and brought people here to ambush them, ready to deal a fatal blow to the weak vampires.
As for how Fang Heng had done this, he did not know.
Even half an hour ago, Chen Lin only had the mentality of trying it out.
If the situation did not go well, he could just run away.
He never thought that he would witness the scene of the Holy Court and the vampires fighting just now.
Needless to say, it felt good to sit back and reap the benefits.
Judge Buda was very puzzled.
“What? Do you still want to continue chatting with us? I don’t mind, but those vampires… Hehe,” Chen Lin said and laughed coldly, he gestured with his mouth at the vampires who were about to catch up from behind. “Why aren’t you all escaping?”
Too many things had happened, and everything was too chaotic. Miranda felt that there were thousands of thoughts in his head, but he had no idea where to start.
He felt that there were too many coincidences in everything that had happened. It was as if tonight’s series of events had been controlled by an invisible hand from the very beginning.
There was no time to ponder about it. Miranda could only decide to make the best choice based on the current situation.
Miranda made his choice and continued to flee into the depths of the forest with the members of the Holy Court.
“Tsk, they didn’t even say a word of thanks. A bunch of impolite fellows.”
Looking at the members of the Holy Court who were fleeing into the depths of the forest, Chen Lin pulled out the beheading broadsword on his back. His face was filled with excitement, “Brothers, the vampires are coming. Get ready for the demon hunting formation. Set up an ambush on the spot. Listen to my orders. Get ready to activate the formation at any time. Let these vampires see how powerful we are.”
As he spoke, Chen Lin glanced at Mo Jiawei and Chu Yan who were at the back of the group.
“Someone is watching us. Don’t embarrass us, demon hunters. Do you understand?!”
All the demon hunters replied in unison, “Understood!”
After leaving the demon hunters behind, Miranda, with the help of the holy cast knights, quickly headed into the depths of the forest.
To avoid being seen, this time, there were very few combat personnel accompanying them, so they could not display their combat strength.
But there were also advantages.[email protected]@@@[email protected]@@@@=======
Fewer people made it easier to hide.
Once they entered the dense forest, it would be difficult for the vampires behind them to track them.
Seeing that the team was entering the depths of the forest, the probability of being chased was much lower. The noise of the demon hunters and the vampires fighting could be heard from behind them. Judge Buda of the Holy Court could not help but frown.
He asked, “I have a very strange feeling about that group of demon hunters. I feel that they seemed to have left an ambush there in advance. Do they know something?”
“Yes, I feel it too.”
Miranda recovered a little and said in a deep voice, “There are many suspicious points in this matter. Now is not the time. We will think about it after we get out of here.”
“Yes, my Lord. We need to determine the next course of action.”
“Find the nearest city train station and think of a way to return to Victoria City as soon as possible.”
“Yes, the nearest train station is…”
As Buda was speaking, he suddenly raised his eyebrows and stopped talking.
A faint rustling sound came from the nearby bushes again.
What was that sound?!
The members of the Holy Court team also heard the sound gradually, and at the same time, they quieted down.
The forest at night was filled with the faint sound of insects. There was also the sound of heavy breathing from everyone.
Other than that, from time to time, there would be strange ‘rustling’ sounds coming from all around.
These strange sounds were getting closer and closer, becoming more and more concentrated.
Buda’s brows were tightly furrowed. He took half a step forward and stood guard in front of Miranda, raising his hand to signal for the team to form a circle and stand guard.
Judging from the sounds, it seemed that there was a large number of creatures hiding in the dark nearby and were rapidly approaching them!
A strong sense of danger enveloped everyone.
Buda said in a deep voice, “Garr! The ball of Holy Light!”
At night, the light emitted by the ball of Holy Light would attract the attention of the vampires, but at this time, Buda had to make a decision.
The team was already in an extremely dangerous situation.
Judge Garr raised the Book of Creation with one hand, and a golden ball gradually condensed from the book and floated three meters in the air.
The ball of Holy Light instantly exploded, and golden ripples spread out in all directions!
The golden ripples instantly blew away the surrounding bushes, illuminating the surrounding area as if it was daytime!
Then, the members of the Holy Court saw the strange creatures hiding under the bushes nearby.
They were crawling on the ground, relying on their limbs to climb, their sharp claws, and their grayish-brown skin…
Garr looked surprised.
Several thoughts flashed through the minds of the people of the Holy Court.
Why were they seeing ghouls here?!
They had heard that there were traces of the undead in Victoria City. Could it be that they were in the same batch as these ghouls?!
Had these ghouls been lying in ambush here?
Had they fallen into a trap?
Who was the one who set them up? Was it the vampires?
Or was it the demon hunters?!
With such a large number of ghouls, there should be at least a hundred of them…
If they were the high-tier mutated ghouls that had appeared in the city that night, they would not have been able to escape.
The members of the Holy Court team were shocked, and their foreheads were covered in cold sweat.
Before they could think carefully, the ghouls let out a cry at the same time and dashed toward the center, launching a surprise attack on the Holy Court.
Garr’s pupils constricted as he opened up a Holy Light barrier.
The Lickers swarmed over from all directions and attacked without hesitation. They used their bodies to crash into the Holy Light barrier, waving their sharp claws to continuously attack the barrier.
Miranda had heard about ghouls before, but this was the first time he had seen the real body of a ghoul with his own eyes. It was the first time he was fighting with a ghoul.
The strength of the ghouls amazed him!
The mutated ghouls’ combat strength was too different from the creatures described in the Holy Court’s records!
Their agility attribute and strength attributes were terrifyingly high!
There was also that almost unreasonable self-healing ability…
They couldn’t hold on, they could not hold on any longer…
The Holy Light barrier became dimmer and dimmer under the attacks of the ghouls, becoming weaker and weaker.
The Holy Light barrier exploded.
A dense horde of Lickers swarmed into the barrier and chased after the judges of the Holy Court.
