A strong gust blew over her ears.
Ruan Qiuqiu instinctively used her spear to block the attack.
Qing Ruyi failed to land a blow on Ruan Qiuqius legs, but one of her willow branches scraped against Ruan Qiuqius injured cheek, leaving a bloody mark as well as fiend energy.
Qing Ruyi curved her eyes.
Although she was surprised that Ruan Qiuqiu was able to block an attack from her, she didnt think she could resist against the fiend energy that she had hidden in the willow branches.
She pulled the willow branches back and didnt plan on attacking again.
However, she was mistaken.
It was true that other humans couldnt resist an attack from fiend energy, but Ruan Qiuqiu had special spiritual energy.
Qing Ruyis fiend energy was inferior to Mr.
Gray Wolfs, and it didnt take long for Ruan Qiuqiu to scatter it.
Finding out that her attacker was a powerful fiend, Ruan Qiuqiu felt scared, but she forced herself to calm down.
Gray Wolf was seriously injured and Grandpa Mos family was up ahead.
She didnt want to leave a dangerous person to either side.
Although her ability was weak, she wasnt without the ability to resist.
If she was the target of the fiend, then she had to do her best to lead this fiend to the Fire Wolf Tribes territory before she was killed by it.
If she did that, she might have a glimmer of hope to survive.
Many thoughts crossed her mind in a short duration.
Ruan Qiuqiu pretended to be injured while tightening her grip on the spear.
When the fiend got close enough, Ruan Qiuqiu immediately stabbed the spear behind her.
She felt the spear stabbing into something.
Ruan Qiuqius eyes brightened.
She wanted to pull out the spear and run, but she was shocked when she saw the person behind her.
It was a gentle-looking female humanoid that looked a bit older than her.
As for thinking that she succeeded in stabbing the fiend behind her, she had been wrong.
The spear was just entangled by willow branches.
Ruan Qiuqiu bit her lip.
Having no other choice, she let go of the spear, quickly rolled to the side, and took out a bone knife for her animal skin backpack.
“Are you… a fiend”
Qing Ruyis eyes were full of admiration.
Still, she didnt intend to talk to her.
She changed her arm into a willow branch, tossed away the spear – that Ruan Qiuqiu greatly cherished because the spearhead was something Mr.
Gray Wolf had worked hard to hunt and bring back, and stretched out her willow branches to attack.
Seeing the willow branches coming towards her, Ruan Qiuqiu gritted her teeth.
She gripped the bone knife and planned to fight to the death.
“Big Sister Qiuqiu” Just as the willow branches were about to pierce Ruan Qiuqius eyes, a crisp childs voice suddenly sounded from afar.
It was accompanied by the sound of messy footsteps in the snow.
“Grandpa, Big Sister Qiuqiu came.”
It was Little Yu.
Ruan Qiuqiu felt as if her heart had stopped beating.
Taking advantage of the fiends momentary surprise, she dodged to the side and shouted, “Dont come here! Theres danger! Run away!”
Qing Ruyi raised her eyes.
Just as she was about to wave her willow branches, the wind brought the sound of a strange yet familiar gentle voice to her ears.
“Whats wrong Wheres the danger Is it those demons from the Fire Wolf Tribe Grandpa will beat them away.”
It had been 23 years since they had last met.
The icy wind brought the voice that pierced Qing Ruyis heart.
Even though that voice had been engraved by the vicissitudes of life and helplessness of the past decades, it still stopped her in her tracks.
