Yet Jack shook his head. “I think we’ve been discovered long ago,” he said, smiling bitterly. “Otherwise that group of people would not have shown up yesterday! Besides, they only fought with Master Cabello for a short while before letting us pass through. Isn’t that strange!”
“I don’t think it’s something we should be concerned about. They must have seen the number of people we have but attempted to fight Master Cabello. Naturally, they were frightened by how strong Master Cabello was, and so they left!”
Three old men from third-class families spoke up after thinking about it.
Yet Jack flashed another bitter smile. “We have so many people. They should have spotted us from afar. It’s illogical for them to not have any good fighters among the many people they have. Since they knew of our circumstances and came over to test us, they definitely have some hidden motive!”
“So you’re saying that we’re already being watched. But if they let us go so easily, it seems that they want to know where we’re going. If this is the case, they’re probably following us now!”
Nash thought about it and added, “But this is something we didn’t predict. This is probably why the Hunt family members chose to go to Bright Snow Mountain.”
“Let’s go. At any rate, we all must be careful!”
While everyone was speaking, Ethan and the others had already killed the wolves before them. They all moved forward again, going deeper into the forest.
The forest was extremely dangerous. By the time the sun rose, Jack and the others had already encountered many monsters.
However, since they had many people among their ranks, some of the smarter monsters chose to run away after spotting them.
Still, some monsters were extremely vicious. They rushed forward when they spotted humans, being dumb beasts. Some of the monsters had even formed packs of hundreds. They were truly fearsome.
Since the outer ring was formed by those who had higher cultivation levels and those of the demi-god status were protected by everyone in the middle, only two or three men had suffered minor injuries once night fell. There were no casualties for now.
At that moment, the people of the Hall of Divine Royal were also bringing a huge group of people, marching forward relentlessly into the forest trying to find the tracks that Jack and the others left behind.
“These people didn’t even rest at night. They’re moving in fast!”
Looking at the field of monster corpses before him, Elder Mosley was taken aback.” These people are smart. They’ve already encountered so many beasts along the way, but we haven’t found a single human corpse. They’re undoubtedly strong, and they seem united! If they don’t get scattered, it’ll be hard for us to take them down even if we run into them!”
Elder Hartman was unhappy when he heard this. “Elder Mosley, why are you giving them so much credit and looking down on your own men?” he said, expression glum. “We have far more people. Even if they have a few more fighters than us, we have nothing to be afraid of, right? Besides, they helped us kill so many monsters along the way. Let’s not follow behind them too closely. We’ll wait till they’ve lost a good number of men before catching up to them. This way, we’ll be able to attack them while they’re weak. They’ll be easy pickings!”
Another Elder immediately smiled and said, “Terrific. Elder Hartman’s plan is terrific. If we go a little later and wait for them to clean up the powerful monsters before us, we won’t encounter that many beasts along our way. Haha. This way, we’ll definitely win!”
They did not think that Elder Mosley would flash a cold smile instead. “Are you sure you want to go in later? If they go in fast, and we’re too slow, they’ll be able to obtain the treasure that enables them to break into the ultimate god status,” he said. “If they have a master who can make the breakthrough, what should we do? Don’t tell me you think you can handle an ultimate god status’s fighting power?”
