Now that Nie Li and Xiao Yu had safely escaped, the others rejoiced!
What else did they have to worry about?
“Everyone, retreat!” Li Xingyun barked.
The Demon League and Heavenly Path League split into dozens of smaller groups and charged out, retreating while fighting off their enemies.
Gu Heng led his men in a chase for a few hundred kilometres. Although both sides had suffered quite a few losses, at least half of the Heavenly Path and Demon Leagues’ combined forces managed to retreat safely. Gu Heng could only watch as they escaped.
A quick count told Gu Heng that the Heavenly Path and Demon Leagues had suffered a total of five thousand casualties, while he’d suffered six thousand. Li Yufueng had also suffered over a thousand deaths.
