Marcus knew that when they notice their disappearance, a search party will come after their tracks. Checking with the Energy Wave Sonar, he found a group of three stage nine and ten stage eight experts coming towards their location.
Isn't this a perfect chance to attack their camp? Telling Xiao Mei about the situation she agreed and both of them moved towards the bandits camp. WIth Marcus detection ability avoiding the search party was simple.
Arriving at the camp Marcus made sure that everything is as he predicted, there were six stage eight and one stage nine left. Nodding to Xiao Mei, they both smiled and started walking towards the camp.
These many enemies were not even a challenge for them, directly entering the camp, in a matter of seconds they were surrounded, the stage nine expert was smiling, and the rest were laughing.
"You two must be really stupid, to come in here by themselves. If you have a death wi…"
Not bothering himself with his small talk, Marcus directly punched out towards the stage nine bandit. Taking half a step back he calmed his mind and took the First Eternal Snake Fist stance.
Xiao Mei looked at the stage eight experts and unsheathed her sword. With a beautiful smile on her face, she dashed towards the first opponent. Slashing him she in the chest, not letting him react she stabbed her sword towards his dantian. Piercing it, his cultivation was shattered. And as he dropped to the ground, Xiao Mei took her sword and dashed towards the next enemy.
Marcus in the meantime was fighting the stage nine expert, dodging his attacks, countering when there was an opening. His opponent was stage nine expert, his physical resilience was amazing, and it took Marcus a few minutes before he could knock him out.
Destroying his cultivation, Marcus was thinking. Without cultivation, he is not a threat to him or anyone with cultivation, but to ordinary people… he still knows Martial arts, and he knows how to kill. He can again hurt people in the future.
If he kills him the problem would be gone, and the world would be safer, then it is with him in it.
But who gave him the right to decide who lives and dies? What if after this he becomes an average person that will atone for their sins. In that case, he will be killing a good person.
He needs to think about this, but now he needs to stop thinking about this, there is still more enemies nearby, and first, they need to take care of them.
Using the Energy Wave Sonar, he knew the search group already found the five bandits they left in the forest and are now making their way back to the camp. There was not much time, they will arrive here in a few minutes, their numerical advantage was now reduced, and if they can ambush them and quickly take care of the stage eight cultivators, it will be finished.
"Xiao Mei, they will be here in a short while."
"Find a good place to hide then; we will attack them when they enter the camp. First focus on the stage eight experts then stage nine ones."
Hiding behind creates Marcus constantly kept watch over the position of the search group, and as they got closer, he gave a signal to Xiao Mei that they are near.
With Jörmungandr in hand Marcus waited, twenty meters, ten meters, two, one… activating his lightning armor, he jumped at the closest enemy with Jörmungandr stabbing into his Dantian, in the same time five lightning bolts struck out, three of which went towards the stage three experts and two stage eight experts.
In the same time Xiao Mei knocked out two more, now there is five left, and with Marcus's lightning bolts they had enough time to take care of four more. When Marcus was about to take care of the last stage eighth expert, he saw that the stage eight experts were already coming for him with fury in their eyes.
"I WILL KILL YOU!"
WIth his fist aimed at the back of Marcus's head, one of the stage nine experts attacked, with no other choice Marcus stopped his advance towards the last stage eight expert and moved his head to the side. As the arm passed over his shoulder, Marcus grabbed it with both hands and…
With a low sound broke it.
"Aghhh!!!" With the guy screaming Marcus kicked back and sent the guy flying. Turning back he dashed towards where the bandit landed and stabbed towards his Dantian. Shattering his cultivation caused him to lose consciousness, looking back Marcus saw the two remaining suppressing Xiao Mei, while the stage eight expert was supporting them from further back with a bow.
With a bolt of lightning, Marcus knocked out the stage eight expert cold and walked towards the two remaining bandits.
This was why they needed to take care of them separately, two were enough to suppress Xiao Mei, and two opponents would delay Marcus by long enough for a third one to join and suppress him as well. And if you add the support of twenty stage eight experts, their death would be quick and unavoidable.
In a few moves the fight was over and thanks to the search party courtesy, they don't have to bring the bandits from the first here. Gathering every bandit in one place, Marcus made sure their cultivations are crippled and their hands and feet bound tightly.
While Marcus was looking after the bandits, Xiao Mei freed the slaves and explained to them what happened. With tears in their eyes, they thanked both of them. But not all of them were crying from the happiness of being free again.
Marcus was looking at a small child, A little girl, maybe six years old. She was looking at the bandits with tears and hate in her eyes, her small hands were trembling and in one of them was a knife.
