On the way out, Chu Yang had been looking out for Su Luo. Su Luo acted calm and relaxed, but in her heart, she was wary of him.
This feeling came from Su Luo's keen sixth sense.
Su Luo remembered that she had asked the young boy to choose a diverse team of people, for fear of them possibly working together to undermine her.
Everyone in this team looked like they had just met each other at first glance, but Su Luo had seen so few indications of unfamiliarity that she began formulating a backup plan.
The abyssal space was vast and endless, full of rolling hills, forests and grasses, and big rivers.
When Su Luo and the others ran away from the patrol legion's pursuit, practically everyone was injured to some degree.
"There is a forest not far ahead; these patrol legions definitely won’t enter the forest. By then, we will be safe!" Chu Yang turned around and encouraged the team behind him.
Not far behind, the patrol legion was still chasing them relentlessly.
"Mm!" The crowd nodded and obeyed the captain's lead.
It didn't take long for everyone to rush into the forest.
Sure enough, the patrol company was hovering just on the outskirts of the forest, shouting but without any intentions of rushing in.
Xiao Luo opened a pair of big eyes and asked the captain curiously, "Why aren't they coming in?"
Chu Yang smiled mysteriously.
Senior Sister Yu disdainfully hooked her lips up.
"There is a particular set of rules for the Vanguard Abyss. The patrol legion has a contract with the King of the Forest, restricting them from entering each other's domain. Didn’t you watch the informative film before coming in?"
In the last half of her words, Senior Sister Yu was questioning Xiao Luo.
Xiao Luo stuck out her pink tongue and made a face, but she was not angry because of Senior Sister Yu's attitude.
From the beginning to the end, Su Luo maintained a gentle smile, neither involving herself in conversations nor clashing with anyone. She seemed like she was just wandering around the team.
The lively Xiao Luo spontaneously and automatically rubbed close to Su Luo: "Senior Sister Su, why are you not talking? Are you worried that you won't be able to return? Don’t be afraid. With our captain around, there’s no need to worry."
"You know the captain well?" Su Luo grinned and glanced at her.
Xiao Luo's eyes flickered slightly, and then laughed: “I've never been on a mission with the captain before, so how could I be familiar with him?"
"But the captain is very powerful; he’s ranked 55th on the Dragon List." Xiao Luo beamed and narrowed her eyes in admiration.
"Is that so?" Su Luo responded indifferently.
After that, Xiao Luo kept pulling Su Luo along with her and pulling the two closer, rambling on and on.
She seemed such a lively, lovely, pure, and innocent-looking little girl that whoever saw her would take a liking to her… based solely on appearances, of course.
Su Luo had suspicions in her heart and looked at Xiao Luo with a different kind of gaze. The arrogance in the girl’s eyes was easy to find.
"It's getting late. Eat something, take a break, and we'll get back on the road in an hour," Chu Yang said, then took out the food prepared long ago from his large storage bag.
The food was very basic. There was no big fish or meat, only simple compressed bread and water.
This kind of compressed bread was sold in the Genius Training Camp, one point apiece.
Chu Yang smiled and divided the bread into pieces one by one.
