The Abyss(7)

Dark clouds converged in the north, plunging Ampere Seale’s Port in dreary darkness. However, beyond the port was a starburst of fire, like lava flowing across the ground, which was the trademark of the scorched land of demons. The portals connected the Sulfur River to Aouine, overlapping and appearing on both sides.

On the scorched ground, the transformed portal emitted a scarlet hue that was clearly visible from every direction, like onyx scattered across a shaggy black carpet.

That scene was like the end of days, everyone could not help but hold their breath. Brendel was thinking of a countermeasure with his head lowered after hearing the princess’ question. It was at this moment when the ‘dark clouds’ in the sky suddenly changed direction. The princess slightly trembled and felt something had gone wrong, the knights exchanged looks and then subconsciously cast their gaze on Brendel.

After all, none of them had actually seen the creatures of Jorgendy Ridge, and the one who seemed to be most knowledgeable here was undoubtedly the lord who came from Trentheim.

Brendel turned back to see the crowds’ faces drain of all color. Princess Gryphine was with no exception. There were only seventeen of them altogether, while there thousands of Eagle Demons.

Even a knight subconsciously tried to draw his longsword, Brendel was startled and rushed over to press his hands. “Nobody move!” They haven’t discovered us yet!” He shouted as he was in fear that someone might pull their sword out in panic. At that point it would be too late as the blade would reflect light, revealing their positions.
