Chapter 40: The Traitor Who Brought This Upon Himself!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Yu Guang was like pulling two sacks, dragging a person with each hand to get them out of the attack range of the rhinoceros!
“Cough Cough Cough Cough Cough! You’re strangling me to death!” Lucia’s shirt was so tattered that there was no place for her to move. Yu Guang could only pull on her bra, which was wrapped around her chest. This woke her up from the pain.
“Yu Guang? Cough, cough, cough, cough! It’s you?!” Han Nan was shocked for a short while before he was filled with endless anger.
In his opinion, if it were not for Yu Guang’s unruly behavior, they would not have had to go deep into the mystic realm and would not have met with danger! The root of all this tragedy was Yu Guang! He would not thank him for saving his life!
“Can you guys still run?” Yu Guang dragged the two of them and asked about their physical condition.
“We can’t.” Lucia lowered her head and said dejectedly, “I’ve hurt my waist and can’t stand up for the time being. This demon beast is too powerful. Don’t bother about us. You should leave quickly.”
Lucia was clear about her body’s condition. She did not want to drag Yu Guang down. In this dangerous environment, it was a matter of life and death.
Hearing this, Han Nan felt that her head had been kicked by a donkey. At this time, she was still playing the noble game. If you want to die, you can die alone! Don’t drag me along!
He glared fiercely at Lucia, looking around to think of a way to escape.
He wanted to live! Even if he had to step on someone else’s corpse, he wanted to live!
“Stop joking. How could I leave you guys behind?” Yu Guang said sternly. Although they weren’t exactly on good terms, they were still companions who had entered the mystic realm together. He couldn’t just leave them to die.
He sped up and dragged the two of them to a rock to hide.
“What are you doing? You’re not thinking of fighting a subdued beast alone, are you?” Lucia pulled Yu Guang, who was about to get up, and tried to persuade him. “What can a beastmaster like you do without a subdued beast? It’s better for you to run!”
“Don’t worry about me.” Yu Guang pulled his hand away. “Trust me, I can handle it.”
In an instant, Lucia felt that Yu Guang’s facial features were very reliable. Whatever he said was true, and it would come true. Her hand, which was already lacking in strength, unexpectedly loosened.
Her eyes were glued to Yu Guang until he jumped in the opposite direction and was blocked by the fierce rhinoceros’ thick body.
“Is Yu Guang okay?” Lucia said worriedly, “Why don’t we go and help him?”
“Sure!” Han Nan’s red eyes flashed with a fierce light as he gritted his teeth. He only wanted to live. Those who stood in his way deserved to die, be it Yu Guang, the rhinoceros, or even Lucia!
At the same time, the true eye bugs reported the situation to the people waiting outside.
“Why aren’t they following orders? Why are they acting alone without Cui Anyu? Who gave them the courage?”
“I told you to remind them earlier, but you insisted that they knew what was important.”
“It’s good that Yu Guang is here, or else they would have become meat pies.”
“Speaking of which, this Yu Guang is quite powerful. He seemed to have rushed over from the center just now, but there wasn’t even a speck of dust on his body.”
“Luckily, he’s fine. Oh, wait. That’s not right! He wants to fight that huge rhino alone? This kid doesn’t know what he’s doing!”
“Stop making sarcastic remarks. Hurry up and order them to retreat!”
Yu Guang, who had disappeared for a long time, reappeared in the camera. Everyone’s eyes were focused on him at the same time. What had he done after disappearing for so long? How could he be unharmed? And what would happen to him after fighting the raging rhinoceros?

As for the others who were left out, as long as they didn’t die, it would be fine.
Yu Guang faced the rhinoceros. As someone who had already fought with the Prairie Fire Liger Beast, he had rich combat experience now. With the help of the appraisal eye, it was really too easy for him to deal with a clumsy rhinoceros.
His feet slowly took a stable horse stance. Gathering his power in his hands, he aimed at the blazing rhinoceros’ fragile abdomen and prepared to attack. However, he suddenly saw that the blazing rhinoceros’ butt was directly in front of him. Lucia and Han Nan sneaked out and prepared to cooperate with Yu Guang to attack the blazing rhinoceros.
“Do it!” Han Nan gave the order before Yu Guang could.
Lucia launched an attack out of reflex. The flame in her hand lit up the fur on the rhino’s tail.
“Han Nan, Yu Guang! Hurry Up!” Lucia shouted. Seeing that the two of them did not attack, she spat at the useless man.
The rhino was provoked. It slowly turned its head and breathed out a manic white breath. Black scabs formed on the tip of the giant rhino’s horn. It turned around and aimed at the two of them.
Lucia felt a chill down her spine. She instinctively retreated, but her back was suddenly blocked by someone.
Before she could figure out the situation, her waist suddenly tightened. Han Nan’s vines wrapped around her, and Lucia heard his voice beside her ear. “Thank you for your hard work…”
Then, Lucia felt her feet leave the ground. The vines swung with all their might, and Lucia was suspended in the air. She saw Han Nan’s determined and fierce sneer.
“Han Nan! What are you doing?!” Yu Guang warned in fear. Why did he suddenly attack his own people?
As soon as he finished speaking, Lucia’s waist loosened, and she was thrown out like a sandbag. Han Nan ran in the opposite direction at the same time!
He used Lucia as bait to hold back the rhinoceros, then ran into the distance as if he was celebrating his escape from the sea of bitterness.
“Han Nan betrayed his companions! Damn it!”
“Damn it! The little fatty looks honest, but I didn’t expect him to be full of evil tricks!”
“I really want to go in and beat him up!”
“This thing has the nerve to be a night watchman. He should be expelled from the Awakened Home.”
The people outside the sinkhole were fuming with anger when they saw this scene. It was understandable if one was afraid of death, but betraying comrades, who fought side by side with them, was unforgivable. This kind of person was not worthy of being human!
Yu Guang leaped up and caught Lucia, who was in a daze in mid-air. He backhanded the ice blade and cut the eyes of the rhinoceros, preventing it from creating an opportunity. Then, he hugged Lucia, who was floating in the air, and hid behind a rock.
The rhinoceros’ eyes were torn open. It shook its head and jumped around in pain. When it opened its other eye, Han Nan was the only living creature in sight.
The rhinoceros roared and ran toward Han Nan with its solid hooves!
“Don’t come over! Go after them! Go after them!” Han Nan shouted in panic. Both of his hands were grabbing randomly in the air, as if he was grabbing a rope that did not exist.
The louder he shouted, the more the rhinoceros noticed him. His footsteps were as fast as thunder. When he stepped on Han Nan’s head, flesh and blood splattered everywhere. The sound of flesh tearing and bones breaking was drowned out by its footsteps. No one even heard a scream.
The flesh and bones melted into the red soil and could no longer be distinguished.
The true eye bug floating in the air sensed that its target had disappeared. It stopped flapping its wings, then fell on the ground where Han Nan had last stepped on, becoming its only mark.
