Gu Yue lay flat against Tang Wulin's back with her arms around his neck while Tang Wulin continued to dig through the earth with his golden dragon claws.
He had chosen to travel toward this direction as he'd seen a river up ahead when he was jumping out of the fortress. This was supposed to be a river that ran through the Star Dou Forest, but it had been exposed due to deforestation. The river was roughly 100 meters wide and unfathomably deep, so this was the ideal escape route for them.
"We've completely lost them."
"Conduct an exhaustive search! Use the underground sensors!"
Troops from the Spirit Pagoda quickly surrounded the entire forest, but none of their equipment was able to detect the presence of Tang Wulin and Gu Yuena. It was as if they'd vanished into thin air.
Several minutes later, the hole opening of the tunnel that Tang Wulin had dug was discovered, but the tunnel had already been sealed and had to be dug out again. However, there was no way to ensure that they could dig the tunnel so that it matched the original route.
15 minutes had already passed by the time all of the underground sensors had been activated, and no large life forms were discovered underground in a radius of several dozens of kilometers. As far as they were concerned, Tang Wulin and Gu Yuena had truly disappeared.
"Splash..." Tang Wulin and Gu Yue's head poked out of the water at almost the exact same moment.
The cool and refreshing water of the river carried their bodies onward, and Tang Wulin looked back to discover that the Star Dou Fortress was already several dozens of kilometers behind them.
He had dug the tunnel all the way to this river, and he was using its flowing water to carry them away. That way, he wouldn't have to expend energy by constantly fleeing from the scene.
Tang Wulin latched onto Gu Yue's hand before pulling her into his embrace, and he asked in a gentle voice, "Are you cold?"
Gu Yue shook her head. She was suffering from amnesia, but she still had all of her power, so she was very resistant to the cold.
"You were so scary back there, Father. Even I was scared when you were yelling at them," Gu Yue said in a displeased manner.
Tang Wulin smiled, and said, "If I didn't do that, how was I supposed to convince them that I was actually threatening to kill you? It's alright, they won't be able to find us now. After we go a bit further upstream, we'll get out of this river. After that, I'll disguise both of us, and we'll change our clothes. No one will be able to find us then."
"Alright, but I'm hungry, Father." Gu Yue wound her arms around his neck, and their clothes were soaking wet at this point, so as soon as she pressed her body against his, Tang Wulin felt a scorching sensation surge throughout his entire body.
