“What is it, Professor?”
Hearing Bai Yu say that he had other discoveries, Han Ning hurriedly asked.
He did not want there to be anything terrifying here!
However, as the saying goes, what you fear comes.
While cleaning up the debris around the giant footprint, Bai Yu followed a strange trail and looked ahead.
“Look, this mark was left behind when a Longevity Worm was crawling. To be able to leave a mark on such a hard rock, it means that the creature’s level of life isn’t too low.”
Han Ning had nothing else to say.
He had a nagging feeling that Bai Yu’s following words weren’t anything good.
As expected, Bai Yu chuckled.
“Good disciple, you’re right. This is the nest of the Longevity Worms. Like the Divine Blood Ants, they have a leader, similar to the ant queen on the ancestral planet.”
“Professor, what level of life is this leader at?”
Han Ning lost all hope when he asked this question.
Ordinary Longevity Worms were at Origin, so how much worse could their leader be?
Just as Han Ning expected, Bai Yu stood up and said helplessly, “Of course it’s the Primal stage. Counting the leader of the Longevity Worms and this new dimension beast, there should be two Primal stage existences in the depths of this cave.”
Right at this moment, the cold Tong Bi suddenly spoke.
“That kind of dimensional beast is called Broken Unicorn.”
Bai Yu was slightly surprised.
He did not expect the bodyguard to know this species.
Once his interest was piqued, Bai Yu hurriedly asked, “Tong Bi, what kind of creature is the Broken Unicorn? Does it have any characteristics? What is their lifestyle?”
At that moment, Bai Yu turned into a studious student and chased after Tong Bi with questions.
However, Tong Bi didn’t even reply.
After saying the name Broken Unicorn, she remained silent as usual.
However, Bai Yu was indignant and kept asking her about Broken Unicorn’s characteristics and habits.
Han Ning was dumbfounded.
He was truly convinced!
Bai Yu lived up to his reputation of being born for research. While everyone was defending against the dimensional beasts, he was studying the traces alone. Now, he was chasing after Tong Bi like a hundred thousand whys.
If not for Tong Bi ignoring him, Han Ning would have been worried that this bodyguard would kill him on the spot!
Helpless, Han Ning shouted, “Professor, let’s not bother about this. What should we do now?”
Yes, he was panicking.
This operation was his first close contact with the dimensional beasts.
Along the way, Han Ning truly experienced the savagery of the dimensional beasts.
Not to mention anything else, there were members on their left who were being clawed down by the dimensional beasts, causing blood to pour out from their bodies profusely!
But now, facing two bosses that were hidden in the dark, Han Ning could only think of one possibility.
And that was to become the bosses’ food!
In the surroundings, the battle between the people and Broken Unicorns continued.
The roars of the ferocious beasts and the roars of the humans intertwined. The Broken Unicorns’ attacks were simple and unadorned. They used their huge claws and sharp teeth to bite.
As they grew fiercer when they fought, they would also use their huge bodies to collide into people.
On the other hand, humans had more tricks up their sleeves.
Before coming, everyone knew that there would be a battle, so most of the members had brought weapons.
Perhaps it was due to the legacy of human civilization, but even after obtaining an extraordinary body, the Dimension users still liked to use weapons such as swords, knives and spears.
In the face of the Broken Unicorns’ attack, all the Dimension users present displayed their abilities.
An Ultimate Strength Realm team member slashed out with his long saber, cutting off a dimensional beast’s neck. However, his chest was ripped open by another Broken Unicorn, which came after. Fresh blood dyed the nearby rocks red.
Not far out, two Ultimate Speed experts’ figures were like ghosts, casually reaping Broken Unicorns’ life.
The powerful bodies of the third-rank evolution made them invincible. Very soon, they completely controlled a battlefield.
At the center of the battlefield, An Bixin was holding a military knife and easily pierced through the skull of a Broken Unicorn.
These images combined to form the current battle.
At this point, it could be seen that although the number of dimensional beasts was greater, as highly-intelligent life forms, humans still had a natural advantage.
The Broken Unicorns’ attacks were somewhat disorderly, but the humans advanced and retreated in an orderly manner.
All the team members retreated as they fought, moving closer to the center.
Under the organization of An Bixin and He Shengliang, the members of the team quickly formed a circular formation. The people around them worked together and attacked Broken Unicorns that were charging forward.
The combat power of this group of elite team members was very strong. Under such close coordination, the Broken Unicorns were unable to break through the crowd even if there were many of them.
After abandoning more than twenty corpses, these guys retreated unwillingly.
The corpses quickly decomposed and dissipated, proving Bai Yu’s point.
The dimensional beasts here were indeed of the same species as those found at the cave entrance.
With the crisis resolved, everyone heaved a sigh of relief.
However, after the battle, the team members also suffered heavy casualties.
Due to the lack of preparation at the start and the fact that some of the team members were ultimately not strong enough, there were less than thirty people left in the team. Furthermore, three members were seriously injured.
Even if they didn’t die, the three of them didn’t have much combat power left.
No one had any idea when the trip to the caverns would end.
Furthermore, to Bai Yu and Han Ning, although the current crisis had been resolved, the greater crisis hidden in the depths made them feel even more despair.
A Primal-level dimensional beast was not something that everyone could contend against.
It would be fine if the other party didn’t appear, but if they did, everyone here would die without a burial ground!
After pondering for a moment, Bai Yu walked up to An Bixin.
An Bixin consciously made way for him.
After the series of accidents, his attitude toward Bai Yu had changed.
So far, the researcher’s judgment has never been wrong.
“What is it?”
An Bixin asked.
Bai Yu briefly recounted his discovery and warned, “Captain An, we can’t go any deeper. The two Primal dimensional beasts have not appeared yet. It’s better to take this opportunity to lead the team out.”
An Bixin was originally sitting on the ground, but after hearing Bai Yu’s story, he suddenly stood up.
“What?! Are you saying that there might be a Primal dimensional beast nearby, nevertheless two of them?”
Bai Yu was about to nod when Han Ning walked over.
“Professor, I just remembered something. You said that there was a leader amongst the Divine Blood Ants. Then, when we discovered the nest of the Divine Blood Ants outside, could it be…”
An Bixin’s face turned even uglier.
Bai Yu also frowned immediately.
Han Ning’s meaning was clear.
Since the Longevity Worm had a leader and had reached the Primal stage, could the Divine Blood Ant that had never appeared also have a leader nearby?
In that case, there would probably be three Primal dimensional beasts in the depths of the caverns!
