The death of the Golden Tree

There was a blast at the southern side of the valley, and another blast half a minute later.

Brendel strained his ears and he confirmed that the Rock Wurm had passed through the valley which was heading inside to the Forbidden Garden. This creature that was clad in a rock armor had uncountable needle-like teeth shaped like a whirlpool for its mouth, easily passing through the earth and tearing up the hardest rocks.

He had seen a mature Rock Wurm in the game before. It was thirty meters long and there had to be at least three people to surround and fight it. The defense of the creature was astonishingly high, even a 40 OZ Vran Sword was not be able to pierce through the rock armor and do damage.

[Damn it. Two sounds. If the BOSS causes the Rock Wurm to take a long detour, its attention would be on us again.]

The roots of the Golden Demonic Tree in the forbidden valley extended nearly a kilometer, and factoring in the Rock Wurm’s fastest speed, Brendel estimated that it would at least require two minutes and thirty seconds to burst out of the ground.

[We’re nearly at the center of the Forbidden Garden. Once we finish bypassing this uneven ground, we would be able to reach the main body of the Golden Demonic Tree. If this BOSS does not interfere with us, that is.]

There was two minutes left.

But he knew that the Golden Demonic Tree would definitely try and stop them. Before he finished his thoughts, there were crackling noises coming from the solid ground.

Before the three of them had the chance to relax, the ground sank once again with a crack visibly forming before them.

“What is it trying to do?” Freya nearly fell backwards and asked uneasily.

“It’s trying to kill us, concentrate and follow me.” He pulled Romaine up from the ground, tore out the sword and sheathed it, then lifted the merchant girl with his arm and jumped over the crack caused by the roots.

Romaine’s face was like a red apple when she found herself hoisted by his arm, and her eyes were opened comically and she did not dare to let her breath out.

Freya also wanted to jump up, but the Golden Demonic Tree was ready with an attack. The roots emerged from the ground and struck her across the chest. If it was not for Brendel’s swift reactions to pull her back, she would have fallen into the crevice along with the rocks and mud.

“Thanks.” Freya shrugged his hand off and thanked him.

“Now is not the time for words.” Brendel pulled his sword out and cut an i
