The evacuation instructions issued by the old priest were quickly conveyed.
The people of the Li tribe who had just crossed the river immediately retreated back along the way they had come.
Unlike the younger members of the clan who were still in a dazed state, the old priest, although seemingly calm, could be said to have had a storm raging in his heart.
The young girl supporting him looked back at the Cold Feather Mountain in the mist and was a bit confused.
It was the first time that she had seen the old priest so distraught. Even when the Li tribe encountered the terrifying beast – Ba Snake, the old priest was always calm and never panicked. He was the backbone of everyone.
But today he was like a different person from his old image.
“Grandpa priest,” the young girl asked, “Even if there is some kind of evil demon in this Cold Feather Mountain, there were six heavenly thunderbolts in a row! Why should we be so afraid of it?”
“What’s more, only six heavenly thunderbolts, proving that the demon is powerful but not to the extent of invincible. With you and all the warriors of the Wind Raiders, we don’t have to be afraid, right?”
The young girl’s heart was full of questions, because she did not know the reason why the priest reacted so fiercely. Although the demon may be powerful, the force of Wind Raiders was strong. If there is a conflict, it is not yet determined who will die.
She was very confident in the strength of her tribe.
The old man glared at the young girl and said, “You little girl, you don’t know what you’re talking about! Have you ever thought if is not a demon or monster?”
“The Heavenly thunder is the world’s most vicious and horrific force of tribulation. Whether he is a Wuzhu or a demon, it is difficult to resist the power of it.”
“If someone is unfortunately hit by the heavenly thunder, he will die and his soul will be extinguish out of existence.”
“And if you died because of getting hit by heavenly thunder, all your years of power cultivation will be broken down and scattered as the most primitive spiritual energy. So after the tribulation, the place where the heavenly thunder hit will have a huge outbreak of spiritual energy.”
“The stronger the sufferer, the more massive the outbreak of its spiritual energy. If the fierce demon who could suffer six heavenly thunderbolts died, the raging outbreak of spiritual energy would have turned into a gale of aura and blown away all the mists between these mountains.”
The old man’s narrative still did not solve the girl’s confusion. But the girl did not open her mouth to ask, because she knew that the priest would continue to explain.
As expected, after a few breaths of silence, the old man slowly spoke.
“Although the power of the heavenly thunder is terrifying, there are also various abilities in the world, and occasionally there are one or two people with special abilities who can survive.”
“However, even if the heavenly thunder does not kill the target, the mighty heavenly power will also remain in the world for a long time.”
“But when you carefully sense, can you sense the breath of the heavenly thunder remains? Now we are completely unable to sense the presence of that power.”
“This situation, it is almost like some creature has swallowed the heavenly thunder…… It is appalling.”
The old man’s explanation made the young girl finally understand.
Her eyes were wide with disbelief, “Swallowed the heavenly thunder? Who can do that in this world?”
The old man’s expression was grave, “The creature in this Cold Feather Mountain may be an ancient divine beast that has never been seen before.”
The young girl nodded in a daze. If it was the legendary ancient divine beast, then no wonder the priest was so nervous.
“In that case, we should indeed talk to the villagers of that Shuisheng village. They have lived here for a long time, and if there is really a divine beast in the mountain, we might be able to get their help so that the divine beast can allow us to live here temporarily.”
When the girl said this, the old man smiled and patted her hand, but didn’t say anything.
After he arranged for the young girl to check the gifts prepared by the clan, he sat down on the roadside to rest, without saying a word.
Among the mountains, the mist was still deep, and the old man still couldn’t see through the scene in the mist.
However, some kind of uneasy emotion in his heart constantly spread.
He did not say the real reason for his worry. With the force of the Wind Raiders, plus the magic human-faced drum, even if they came across an ancient divine beasts, he did not need to be so worried.
He was now out of control because of the revelation received from the holy maiden when the nine branches of the Li tribe gathered at the Holy Mountain last time.
It was that the Li tribe was in danger of being exterminated by the Lord of Calamity.
And the aura of the Lord of Calamity seemed to be highly similar to the existence on this Cold Feather Mountain ……
Thinking of this, the old man’s hands were unconsciously clenched.
If the existence in this mountain is really the prophesied Lord of Calamity, will their Wind Raiders going to be the first branch to be exterminated of the nine branches of the Li tribe?
Will the danger of extinction really come so quickly?
