Ji Fengyan turned back to Chang Pu. “Now, what will you choose? Your own life or to kill everyone in the city?”
Chang Pu gritted his teeth. Ji Fengyan was mimicking his earlier threat to punish him.
“General Ji, you win.” Chang Pu narrowed his eyes and let out a sigh. He looked at the high-level demons and whistled. All of them instantly stopped their attack and slowly backed off.
The demons’ abrupt retreat left the crowd dumbfounded. But soon, everyone realized that it was because Ji Fengyan now had the demon’s leader by the neck.
Lu Shaoqing let out a sigh of relief when he saw Ji Fengyan holding Chang Pu.
Just before the demons attacked, Ji Fengyan had already hinted him to find the nearest route to the main gates of the city lord’s residence.
While dealing with the demons, Lu Shaoqing was constantly seeking a way.
The chaos created when the citizens of Ping City entered the battlefield had provided Lu Shaoqing the opportunity to transmit his information to Ji Fengyan.
And Ji Fengyan had not let them down. She had really done it.
In this battle to the death, Ji Fengyan had managed to get a hold of their only chance at survival!
The citizens stared in disbelief at the retreating demon army. Their hands were still trembling as if they had yet to recover from the shock of the bloodbath.
“Open the city gates.” Ji Fengyan commanded.
Chang Pu’s eyes darkened as he gnashed his teeth. Nevertheless, he had no choice but to obey.
Two high-level demons opened up the gates.
Ji Fengyan glanced at Lu Shaoqing and the rest. The Wolf Smoke Regiment immediately led the exhausted Ping City citizens out of the city.
Only after the last person had exited, the city did Ji Fengyan finally relax a little.
“You have achieved your goal. Can you release me now?” Chang Pu looked at Ji Fengyan from the corner of his eye.
Ji Fengyan grinned. “Sorry, for our own safety, I am afraid you will have to come along with me.”
“What!!” Chang Pu was shocked.
Ji Fengyan kicked off into the air on her heavy sword as she single-handedly lifted Chang Pu into the air.
The demons inside Ping City instantly made to chase after them. However, Ji Fengyan gave Chang Pu another cut, making him break out in cold sweat from the pain.
“Rein them in.”
Chang Pu gritted his teeth in frustration. However, there was no other option but to comply.
Song Yuan stood dumbfounded before the gates of the city lord’s residence. He stared after Ji Fengyan leaving with Chang Pu, his face full of panic and unease.
It was over. It was all over for him…
His secret would be exposed now that Ji Fengyan and the rest had escaped.
“Don’t let them leave! Hold them!!” An uncontrollable fear surged up in Song Yuan as he hollered at those demons.
Without Chang Pu’s orders, those demons would never listen to Song Yuan. He ended up looking like an idiot, frantically jumping up and down at the gates of the city lord’s residence.
A pathetic joke.
Holding onto Chang Pu, Ji Fengyan flew in the opposite direction from Linghe and rest.
She needed to guarantee that Linghe and company could reach safe grounds. Hence, to ensure they had enough time to make a complete escape, she had to lead Chang Pu away to divert the demons’ attention.
