Grayson’s mind truly did digest the situation they were in. Jackie had just thought about all of that when Grayson spoke of it.
Grayson was right. They could use the distribution of the weak and the strong to determine where they should flee toward. The stronger beasts would usually always be in the inner areas of any forest.
The weaker the beasts, the longer they would stay around the outskirts. With this tactic, they would be able to leave this place. However, they first needed to find somewhere they could be safe in before that.
The spiritual vessel might have been wrecked, but its hard outer shell could still withstand a certain level of attacks. As long as it was not a dangerously strong fiend, they would be able to hide inside for temporary shelter should any danger present itself to them.
With the spiritual vessel as a temporary shelter, they could slowly start to explore outward.
Grayson took a deep breath. “I guess there’s always a way-“
The moment he said that, the sound of frantic footsteps could be heard. It did not sound like a fiend’s claws pacing on the ground. The three of them could immediately tell the difference.
The moment they heard the footsteps, they immediately turned to look toward the direction but dared not move. They did not leave the spirit vessel.
They did not know whether the footsteps belonged to friend or foe. A human’s heart was often more complicated than a beast’s, so the trio had to be prepared for everything.
After a moment, they saw a white figure heading toward them from the most northern direction. He seemed to be stumbling as he ran.
It looked like someone running for his life.
This individual was clad in a white robe, one that had tears in them seemingly done by tree branches. At that point, it looked like he merely had a ragged cloth that covered his body. The person seemed to have sustained numerous wounds all over him, too.
The person’s lips were stained with blood, as was the poor white robe he had on. He was not running that quickly and even grabbed the branches around him for support as he ran. He looked incredibly pathetic.
The scene immediately conjured complicated thoughts in their heads. That person should already be injured, so he would not be a big threat to them.
However, he was obviously running away, so they wondered what was behind him.
At that moment, the white-robed man suddenly noticed something different. He first saw the vessel before he noticed the three next to it. He reached out his hand toward them as he said with the last of his strength, “Save me…!”
Right after he said those words, he collapsed on the ground after using the last of his strength.
The corner of Rudy’s lips twitched as he looked toward Grayson and Jackie in a panic.
“What should we do? Should we save him?”
Grayson shook his head. “No. His enemies might be hot on his trails right now. If we save him, then his enemies would think we’re allies. Would it not drag us into his problems? It’s best if we mind our own business!”
