Chapter 949: Pursuit and counterattack

Translator: Legge

A very exciting escape had suddenly begun in the wilderness. After a short rest, Ren Xiaosu led the Great Hoodwinker and Xun Yeyu to try to bypa.s.s the pursuing barbarians and quickly get back to Mt. Zuoyun.

But how were those barbarians able to keep up with them the entire time?

Initially, Ren Xiaosu wanted to take the opportunity to fight back against the elite barbarians. But later, he heard Xun Yeyu describe that almost all of them were rated on the level of T5 combatants.

With 80 T5s pursuing them from behind, even Ren Xiaosu’s scalp went numb when he heard that.

Under such circ.u.mstances, turning around to fight back would be suicidal.

Moreover, Xun Yeyu could sense that the four expeditionary army’s brigades in the wilderness were actually coordinating with these elite barbarians to encircle and intercept them.

While they were trying to get to Mt.. Zuoyun, the enemy’s brigades cut off their path forward.

If not for Xun Yeyu’s perception power, they would probably have headed straight into the enemy’s encirclement.

Of course, if not for Xun Yeyu’s presence, Ren Xiaosu would probably have already returned to Mt. Zuoyun. There wouldn’t have been any further incidents of ambus.h.i.+ng the expeditionary army’s main forces.

Xun Yeyu started getting a little anxious. As he fled, he panted heavily and said, “Future Commander, the elite barbarians behind us are getting closer and closer. What should we do?!”

To be honest, Xun Yeyu was really a little panicky. At this moment, he only hated himself for not exercising more often. Even if it were just going for a jog, it would have been good.

Now that they were gradually getting caught up to, Xun Yeyu knew full well he was slowing down Ren Xiaosu and the Great Hoodwinker’s escape. If it were Ren Xiaosu and the Great Hoodwinker alone, they would probably have already shaken off these barbarians. After all, they were very fast.

In truth, Ren Xiaosu’s current physical fitness was still not equal to a T5 combatant’s. But even though the elite barbarians’ strength was on par with the T5s, their dexterity was slightly inferior to Ren Xiaosu’s.

As long as he tried his best to escape, it would be a little difficult for the barbarians behind to catch up to him.

But it was different for Xun Yeyu. Ren Xiaosu’s Dexterity was 17.1, while his Dexterity was probably only 6.

Therefore, Xun Yeyu was most worried that Ren Xiaosu and the Great Hoodwinker would abandon him just so they could shake off the barbarians.

The Great Hoodwinker glanced at Xun Yeyu. The old man was smart as a tack and immediately saw Xun Yeyu’s thoughts. He snapped, “Don’t worry, we won’t leave you behind. At worst, I’ll turn around and buy you some time.”

Xun Yeyu teared up and muttered, “As long as I survive this, I’ll definitely play my part for the Prosperous Northwest, I promise….”

All of a sudden, a figure rushed over from the other side of the wilderness. Xun Yeyu focused his gaze and saw it was White Mask!

Ren Xiaosu had been keeping Old Xu on guard outside. But in order to escape, he summoned it back.

After Old Xu joined them, it placed Xun Yeyu on its shoulder without any effort.

Ren Xiaosu chuckled and said, “We can advance at full speed this way. The barbarians behind us can eat our dust.”

Old Xu’s Strength was rated at 35, and its Dexterity was 34.2. If the barbarians behind continued closing in on them, Ren Xiaosu thought he would just let Old Xu carry him as well and make their escape together.

Xun Yeyu was being carried by Old Xu on its shoulder. Although he was on the verge of vomiting from the b.u.mpy ride, he perked up when he realized he did not have to die anymore. “Future Commander, let’s shake them off quickly!”

However, Ren Xiaosu shook his head. “No, we can’t leave them too far behind. We have to get them to chase after us!”
