Four thousand and twenty-five years, Tianjue Island.
The waves were continuously slapping against the steep rock wall creating sound. The blue sea and dazzling sun were making people’s eyes dizzy.
However, what was happening on the shore was completely different from the dazzling seascape.
While holding a sword, Mu Yun Gui attacked the Iron Tortoise. At the same time, the attack of the second-level Iron-stripped Tortoise fell on Mu Yun Gui.
She groaned, and a mouthful of blood surged from her chest.
This place was Tianjue Island, surrounded by the sea from all sides and isolated from the rest of the world.
Mu Yun Gui was born here, and since she grew up she had never seen anyone outside the island here.
The climate of Tianjue Island was harsh, and there was the constant threat of fierce sea beasts. Learning how to avoid and attack those beasts was a must for all the children on the island.
Mu Yun Gui’s mother was an outsider, who accidentally came to Tianjue Island when she was pregnant. Hence they were always excluded from the island inhabitants.
Coupled with the fact that her mother was in poor health, Mu Yun Gui grew up early and learned to manage the family.
Due to her poor health, her mother died when Mu Yun Gui was only fifteen, since then Mu Yun was standing alone.
Today Dongfang Li, Nangong Xuan’s junior sister, insisted on coming under the cliff to take away some iron-stripped tortoise eggs.
Mu Yun Gui didn’t agree to it.
She didn’t want to take any risk, but Dongfang Li repeatedly stressed that this was the iron-stripped tortoises’ dormant period and they would lose their attack power during this time.
They only have to steal some monster eggs and run, there would be no danger. After everyone agreed, Mu Yun Gui had no choice but to follow them.
But something happened, during their retreat, the junior sister somehow alarmed the iron tortoise, and the situation suddenly changed.
Mu Yun Gui swallowed the blood that had surged from her chest. And shouted at her frightened companions, “Hurry up!”
The companions recovered and ran to the edge of the cliff. They forcefully climbed up and some people who had already run on the cliff hurriedly pulled the others up.
Dongfang Li watched Mu Yun safely step closer to the retreat. She frowned and anxiously said, “Senior sister is in danger.”
Then, Dongfang Li hurriedly jumped off the cliff and went near the rock to help Mu Yun.
The fight with the iron-stripped turtle was about to end, and Mu Yun was about to retreat. But because Dongfang Li hurriedly ran down, the iron-striped tortoise was enraged and once again started launching a violent attack.
The rock under Mu Yun Gui’s feet began to tremble and she was about to fall.
Even though Mu Yun Gui had a good temper, at the moment she truly wanted to scold Dongfang Li for making a mess of everything.
Meanwhile, Dongfang Li was still standing next to her, and shouting in panic, “What should I do? Senior Sister, I can’t hold on.”
Mu Yun wanted to say that you already had a first-level star vein, and still asking a zero-level star vein person what to do?
But the other party came here to help her, so she politely said, “It’s okay, we will be alright. The iron-striped tortoise can’t climb the cliff, so we just have to climb the cliff to be safe.”
Although the iron-striped tortoise was a second-level beast, its offensive power was not very strong.
Even someone like Mu Yun Gui, who had zero-level star vein could fight with it for a while, so it was reasonable to say that the eldest lady of the Dongfang family with one-level star vein and excellent magic weapons would not be defeated by it.
But Dongfang Li didn’t leave, and Mu Yun had to stay on the front line to defend and wait for her.
Suddenly Dongfang Li placed a strong spell in the wrong direction and that spell, unfortunately, hit the rock where they were standing.
Under the shaky rock, a group of poison-tailed crocodiles was staring at them.
Nangong Xuan looked down from the cliff, with a stern face said, “This place is going to collapse. You all should go away, I will save them.”
After asking his companions to leave, Nangong Xuan used the cane and went down the cliff.
Dongfang Li was making frequent mistakes while dealing with the iron-stripped tortoise, and Mu Yun had to carry all the attacks.
While facing the violent attack from the iron-stripped beast, she shouted at Dongfang Li, “Go. You go up first.”
Dongfang Li turned and ran towards the cliff. After running out of the attack range of the beast, she suddenly fell and twisted her ankle.
Nangong Xuan flew down, looking at Dongfang Li and Mu Yun Gui, he hesitated.
After a moment, he changed his direction and decided to save Dongfang Li first.
He and Mu Yun Gui had cooperated many times and killed many beasts. It would not be a problem for Mu Yun Gui to fight with the iron-stripped beast alone for a few minutes.
But Dongfang Li was the eldest lady of the Dongfang family, who never hurt a finger. She would be in a lot of pain after twisting her ankle.
Looking at Nangong Xuan’s actions, Mu Yun Gui didn’t expect that at the critical moment of life and death, Nangong Xuan would choose Dongfang Li over her, who was further away from her.
Two days ago, Mu Yun failed to open her star vein and it counterattacked on her. Now she has taken several rounds of Iron-stripped Tortoises’ attack on her body.
Her body was already on the verge of collapse.
