The two of them quickly rushed forward, they didn’t care about killing the demons, only that they’re out of their way.
They made it!
As the two of them got into the cave, Gu Qing Shan turned and kicked a Crimson Gold Demon out.
While the Crimson Gold Demon was still flying, Gu Qing Shan had already stuffed the last Crimson Crane Qi Holding Pill in this mouth and took out the formation plate on his back.
“Wind, Wood, Light, Dark, Water, All Beings Life and Death Illusion formation!”
Illusion formation casted!
“Wind, Fire, Lightning, Water, Heaven Earth Spirit Funnel”
Spirit Funnel formation casted!
“Spirits of the Earth, Water, Wood, Metal, Deep Fog!”
Maze formation casted!
“Vanquish the wicked, Demon Repel Formation!”
Repel formation casted!
In a single moment, Gu Qing Shan had activated all the defensive formations on the formation plate given by Gong Sun Zhi.
The Crimson Gold Demon that got kicked away rolled twice on the ground then stood up.
It was angry, wanting to scream, yet when it turned around to look, it saw nothing in the cave.
Only a thin fog was seen, which carried an atmosphere that made it not want to get close.
And then, the whole cave disappeared.
With the Crimson Gold Demon’s mind, no matter how much it thought it still couldn’t understand, only feeling like it didn’t want to go anywhere near that place.
The Crimson Gold demon growled angrily, then turned around and left.
Afterwards, the hundreds of thousands of demons that came couldn’t find their prey no matter what.
Strange, where are the two meat?
Who stole them?
The demons looked at each other, but didn’t find the alluring smell of flesh and blood from any of the other demons’ mouths.
Then the demons fought and killed each other again to release their anger.
After a while, the demons reluctantly scattered.
They were unconsciously avoiding the cave.
After Gu Qing Shan was done, he dropped the formation plate and sat straight down on the spot, breathing heavily and shouted: “My spirit energy is limited, these formations won’t hold for too long, go and turn on the large-scale hidden formation quickly!”
Constant killing on the way here, using the Secret Art, then consecutively arranged several formations, Gu Qing Shan had already ran out of every bit of energy he has.
He literally couldn’t lift a finger now.
Luckily, he had the final Crimson Crane Qi Holding Pill that was slowly doing its job in his stomach.
Seeing Gu Qing Shan’s dead tired appearance, Leng Tian Xing stood up and went towards the end of the cave.
On a large wall at the end of the cave was a formation 3-person tall.
This formation is specifically designed to stop demons from peeking inside, and there was another formation on the ground, a super-distance mass-transportation formation.
These formations are the crystallization of humanity’s highest degree of formation knowledge.
Leng Tian Xing jumped forward, took out a few mid-grade spirit stones and put them inside the formation.
The large-scale hidden formation starts to move.
As Leng Tian Xing looked at the super-distance formation, his face changed and exclaimed in horror: “This can’t be!”
When Gu Qing Shan heard that, he couldn’t help but feel his stomach tightened.
If anything unexpected happen right now, even if he has the ability to bend reality itself, he won’t have the spirit energy to use it.
He staggered to stand up and asked with a low voice: “What’s the matter?”
Leng Tian Xing dejectedly answered: “The super-distance teleportation formation isn’t completed; we can’t return”
At this moment Leng Tian Xing was really feeling despair.
After they went through hell and back, after everyone almost all died to get here, their only hope had became despair instead.
Gu Qing Shan thought for a bit, then took out a small iron sphere in his chest and asked: “Does it perhaps need this?”
Leng Tian Xing eyes once again glowed and said: “The specially made secret rune! We’re saved!”
“Specially made secret rune?”
Gu Qing Shan repeated that.
“Wait a minute” he slowly looked up at Leng Tian Xing, “What did you say this was?”
“A component of General Sun Zhi’s formation”, Leng Tian Xing was still basking in joy, “with this, we can fill the missing part of the super-distance teleportation formation, we can return to our world from here”
“This isn’t an identification device? It’s not an identification device we can use to call for reinforcement?”
Gu Qing Shan grabbed Leng Tian Xing’s cuffs and shouted loudly.
“Identification device? Of course it’s not an identification device”
Leng Tian Xing looked at Gu Qing Shan strangely.
Gu Qing Shan released his hands, staggered backwards step by step and fell down.
His face paled, his heart sank to the very bottom.
So Gong Sun Zhi had already decided to sacrifice himself.
Gong Sun Zhi only gave this to him to let him escape.
Gu Qing Shan struck the cave wall with his fist, knocking rubble everywhere.
What good does it do for me to return alone!
Why didn’t I think of that before!
Right now he is nothing but a lowly Vanguard legion soldier; so he can’t possibly bring any intelligence back to the top brass.
In this world, without strength, without status, your words carry even less weight than the wind.
Not to mention, the top brass of humanity already has traitors. As soon as he showed himself, the traitors can just frame him with a random crime and kill him without asking.
Look for a Saint?
No, that’s even more impossible.
Even Gong Sun Zhi and Ning Yue Xi had to use 300 years’ worth of supplies from their own sects to exchange a single communication talisman to contact them.
Gu Qing Shan and Gong Sun Zhi are worlds apart in status.
Nevermind meeting a Saint directly, he can’t even get a communication talisman to contact them.
Just how, just what could he do?
There’s less than half a day left until Gong Sun Zhi dies!
“What’s going on with you?” Leng Tian Xing saw that his expression was strange and asked.
“You be quiet first please”
Gu Qing Shan slapped his face, forcing himself to be calm.
What can he do now to save Gong Sun Zhi and Ning Yue Xi?
Every second counts.
Contacting their respective sects, definitely impossible.
The traitor would definitely have prepared people to monitor the sects.
“What did General Sun Zhi tell you?” Gu Qing Shan asked him.
Seeing him asking that with a serious tone, Leng Tian Xing also seriously answered: “If he doesn’t return, we have to immediately return to our world, change our names and hide our status, wait until he can reveal the traitor”
Gu Qing Shan deeply sighed.
So Leng Tian Xing still held hope that General Sun Zhi can come back to reveal who the traitor was.
With the current situation, even if they could get away from the traitor’s monitoring, if he were to randomly seek out the sects, they would definitely be suspicious.
A round of confirmation back and forth would take too long; he won’t make it in time.
Not to mention, even if they believe, there’s no telling whether or not the two sects have the power to save the two of them.
The demon’s forces have always been overwhelming compared to humans, and this time it was their elites that were dispatched.
He’s sure that the 5 demon generals will also appear very soon.
Faceless Giant, the 5 demon generals.
And the Grounded Devil legion will also have returned to the frontline.
Grounded Devils by nature counter the use of formation, when that happens, Ning Yue Xi and Gong Sun Zhi will be in even more danger.
This situation really does make people despair.
What methods are there left?
Gu Qing Shan gritted his teeth tightly, quickly reviewing all the methods he can think of.
After a while, he closed his eyes and sighed deeply.
The 3 Saints.
The only way for them to make it in time, to save them in time is if they have the 3 Saints’ help.
After all that thinking, he’s returned to square one.
The 3 Saints are the highest fighting strength of humanity. Normally, even a sect master couldn’t guarantee to contact them, let alone Gu Qing Shan who is a nameless soldier at the frontline.
Gu Qing Shan shook his head, almost in complete despair.
