    Chapter 200: A Night of Running

    Translator: Tim  Editor: Chrissy

    There was more sound around Ning Qingxue. Although she was still by herself in the forest, Ning Qingxue wasn't as scared as before. It was as though the chiming of the birds were much cuter than the dead silence near the sky ditch.

    Due to the animal attack, Ning Qingxue only rested for a little while and took out the telescope to look at the distance. Although she was closer to the cliff, she couldn't see as clear as she could before since the mist covered everything.

    Ning Qingxue didn't dare to linger, she already wasted a day's time. If something happened to Ye Mo, she wouldn't know what to do.

    In the forest, other than some open spaces, most places seemed dark and eerie. She was scared that if she lingered on, that terrifying thing would chase her. Luckily, the Evil Repellent Charm would spread some warmness from time to time, making her not too afraid of the dark surrounding.

    Ning Qingxue didn't seem to feel fatigue trekking in this primal forest. She just kept walking knowing the direction of the cliff and not caring about the rest. She was also thinking. She didn't know if it was due to Ye Mo saving her last time or because she was tensed up mentally that her stamina seemed a lot better.

    Luckily, Ning Qingxue didn't encounter peaks that were too high. Although her luck was good, she still collapsed in fatigue after the second peak.

    When she looked at herself, her clothes were tattered. Her jeans were ripped, and her coat had holes everywhere.

    Now, Ning Qingxue knew that she prepared a lot of things for survival but not clothes. It was dark now; if it wasn't dark, she didn't feel much walking, but once it was, she started to worry.

    She subconsciously felt the Evil Repellent Charm. One of the had disappeared for no reason. There was only one left. She immediately knew that she used one up without her even knowing. It seemed that there were a lot of strange things spying on her on the way. If it wasn't due to the charm, she might be in more danger.

    Thinking about this, Ning Qingxue didn't dare to stay. She ate some food and took out a mine light. She continued forward like this in the dark.

    In less than two hours, another black shadow darted onto her back. She was concentrated on walking that she didn't even know the Body Protection Charm had repelled the black shadow away and her bag was even torn by the thing.

    She didn't even notice her bag getting lighter and lighter. She only knew that she had to keep walking. She was afraid that once she stopped, she would feel scared about the deadly silence and darkness.

    When it was just dawn, Ning Qingxue flipped her messy her. She didn't even believe she could walk for an entire night. Something supported her spirit, perhaps it was fear, perhaps it was Ye Mo.

    She took off her bag. She even complimented herself for walking a whole night while carrying such a heavy bag. She didn't encounter any of those sky ditches. Although she still couldn't see the cliff in this place, she was sure it wasn't far. She also knew that although she walked for so long, she didn't actually travel far. Most of the time was wasted on small hills.

    She was prepared to eat something and took her bag off. That was when she had a big shock. Other than some ropes, there were just climbing equipment. There was a big hole in her bag. Most of the food, water and medications had fallen out. There was just two bottles of water and a bag of biscuits left. She felt her pocket and realized her phone was gone too. After being dumbfounded for a while, she thought about her situation. She didn't dare to go back and look for them. She didn't even dare to look back, she knew would feel scared.

    She felt the charms on her chest, even the Body Protection Charm was gone. She didn't even know when it disappeared. The remaining Evil Repellent Charm was a lot more withered.

    She looked at the bag and knew that if it wasn't for the rope, the rest of the climbing tools would've fallen out. She quickly cut off a bit of the rope and tied up the bag. Although she was extremely tired, she didn't dare to stay there and rest.

    When the first ray of sunlight shone into the forest, she finally felt relieved. Those things that made her frightened disappeared. At least, there was no more of those strange howls at night.

    Ning Qingxue quickly walked to a high point. When she wanted to take a look through the telescope, she realized she had walked to the bottom of the mountain. At this moment, she wanted to cry. With her own hard work, she walked a whole night through this horrifying primal forest.

    She remembered clearly that this was where Ye Mo fell. She had thought about it countless times and wouldn't be wrong. She didn't want to go through the unknown things in the forest again.

    Breathing the morning fresh air, Ning Qingxue started to find ways to enter the bottom of the cliff. However, she looked for two hours and realized there was no entrance. The only way to the bottom of the cliff was to climb up the cliff and go down from there.

    Ning Qingxue returned to the bottom of the mountain. Luckily it wasn't hard to climb from here as the place was slanted. She didn't know if Ye Mo came up from here. Ning Qingxue really couldn't understand why Ye Mo would go up from here and fight with someone. If she didn't see it with her own eyes, she wouldn't believe it.

    There were a few peaches at the mountain road. They were obviously immature, but she was hungry so she picked some and ate it. It was bitter. She never had this, but in order to give her energy, she had to eat it. She ate another half pack of biscuits and finally felt recovered a little.

    Then, she continued. She knew she was supported by her spirit and once she fell, there would be no way for her to get up again. At this moment, she was sure her body was much better than before. It was definitely related to Ye Mo's treatment that night. If it wasn't due to that, perhaps she wouldn't be able to make it here even with her determined spirit.

    Although this peak wasn't steep, it was still very hard for Ning Qingxue. She put all the tools on her waist and started to climb carefully.

    Ye Mo and the two martial artists could go up easily but Ning QIngxue had to go up step by step.

    Starting from 7 in the morning, she climbed till 2pm before reaching the peak.

    The scene almost made Ning Qingxue vomit. Two people were dead, cut into four pieces. But soon, Ning Qingxue saw the place she stared at before with her telescope. She was sure that Ye Mo fell from here.

    She walked to the edge and looked down. There were layers of white mist. She couldn't see the bottom. She shivered, would he still be alive falling from here? Her rope was 100m at most. This cliff seemed to be about 1km tall. How could she get down?

    If she didn't get down, what was the point of coming here? Did she have the courage to return from where she came? Ning Qingxue just thought about this now, she never even thought about a way of getting back.

    Was she going back? If Ye Mo was no longer alive, what would be the point of her going back? Ning Qingxue shook her head and put aside these thoughts. She looked at the two dead person and no longer had the fear she had before.

    Ning Qingxue walked to a body and picked up a small sword. She found in joy that this body had a huge bag beside it. She opened it and it was full of rope.

    She quickly pulled it out and now realized that it was made from a fiber she had never seen before. It was very thin, but when she tested it, it was very sturdy. It was even sturdier than the rope she prepared. She looked at the big loop and realized perhaps it was 1km long.

    At the end, there was a metal hook.

    Ning Qingxue gasped a sigh of relief. Without this rope, she could only climb down from here carefully, but she didn't even need to climb to know that it would be death. This cliff was too steep. Even with the rocks and sticks sticking out, it would still be highly likely for her to die.

    Ning Qingxue carefully secured the rope on a rock and tested it before tying it to her waist.

    Then, she grabbed the tools and slided down the cliff slowly.
