Andesha had countless green tentacles of vines growing out from her back and they shot towards Brendel. She attempted to quell the immense Mana emanating from him a second time, but her steel-like tentacles started burning like paper on a flame upon meeting the light, and they turned into ashes in the blink of an eye.
She screamed, hurriedly withdrawing the tentacles that were everywhere in the vicinity. The golden light seemed like it had the capability to burn her soul, and she felt waves of pain crawling over her skin.
The leader of the Tree Shepherd suddenly turned to the trees, sensing something. Her purple eyes suddenly contracted as she saw a green light flashing from the valley.
“She comes really quickly,” Andesha said through gnashing teeth.
She hastily moved back and grabbed Scarlett’s arm, speaking in a low voice:
“It is still not the time to fight with that woman. My little darling, come with me now.”
But she did not expect to meet resistance and failed to move Scarlett. She turned around in surprise, only to discover that Scarlett was grabbing on a boulder that was jutting out from the ground.
“I’m not going with you.” Scarlett was looking fearlessly at Andesha’s eyes with determination, and she spoke each word with a pause.
“How dare you!” Andesha’s voice went up several octaves: “You promised me! As long as I cured him, you will follow me!”
“But I didn’t say anything about keeping my promise. I will not leave my lord, kill me if you want to.”
Andesha was stunned for a moment. The image of the Tree Shepherds was their cunningness and broken promises. It was unthinkable that she would fell for a little girl’s lie. Even if she wanted to kill Brendel now to get back at her trickery, the golden flames around the Blood of Gods might not allow her to do so.
She trembled in fury and smacked Scarlett’s head with the back of her hand, causing the girl to utter a short cry and fall unconscious to the ground.
But this short delay allowed the green flash in the valley to reach Andesha. Veronica accelerated as she pursed her lips tightly, with her hand gripping her sword’s hilt. She took a single step and crossed the distance of hundreds of meters and enabled her to reach her destination.
In the next moment, she had blocked Andesha from her escape.
“Andesha!” Veronica said, eyeing the tied up Faena with a cold gaze.
“Tsk.” Andesha ceased her actions. She was someone who had much experience in life after all and became composed: “Hmph. It seems like I’m slower by a step. Lady Veronica, your control over your Element Power has indeed reached the ‘Extreme’ state. Your speed is fast enough to cause illusions to fool one’s eyes.”
“Cut your nonsense, Andesha.” Veronica’s voice was cold as winter’s ice. She knew this woman’s identity very well, and the latter’s appearance here was definitely not to flatter
