He continued. “From my estimation, this place isn’t far from the rendezvous point; one hour is enough for a to-and-fro trip.”
“All right. You must wait for me!”
“Okay!” Youyou smiled before changing the topic. He commanded, “Lisa, protect my brother well!”
“Yes, master,” replied his personal bodyguard respectfully.
She also believed that if they continued to drag this further, they would be unable to leave this place the moment they exhausted all their energy.
Since the two still had some strength, they should hurry and meet with the troops.
On the contrary, it would be safer for her charge to stay here.
“Stay here and wait for me!” said the girl.
“Okay!” He nodded.
She then turned and hurried off.
Mu Yichen’s heart was slightly in turmoil, but in the present situation, it was indeed safer for his brother to stay where he was.
He was too weak.
He knew that his and the girl’s physical strength had dwindled and they were at their limits. If they were to get into any more incidents during their trek out of the jungle, they would be up to their ears in work.
Therefore, after glancing at his twin one more time, he gritted his teeth and followed the girl.
Youyou closed his eyes and tried to recuperate.
He was completely exhausted at this point. He knew his physical condition well. It was already hard for him to stay back and wait for the two; thus, it was needless to say that following them would have been impossible.
However, no matter how slim their chances were, he would push on until the end as long as there was still strength left in him.
He covered himself with the jacket his brother had left him. The cave, which was moist and cold, seemed to press down on him entirely.
He could feel the blood in his entire body solidifying and no longer flowing smoothly as if he were frozen. Every capillary on his cheek had turned rigid; his skin felt numb from even the slightest expression he formed on his face.
He touched his face, almost believing that a layer of ice had formed on it!
The boy tried to keep his eyes wide open. He was sleepy and tired. He could not help himself from coiling into a fetal position at the freezing cold. This little lad was like a frail shrimp, cowering in a corner, but this did little for him to withstand the cold.
Gradually, his eyelids had gotten heavy.
He strove to keep his eyes open still despite knowing that his physical strength had reached its limits.
The lad refused to let himself close his eyes.
The temperature on these vast mountains was close to zero, and it was extremely chilly during daybreak. He raised his head and watched the sunrise but could hardly feel the light or the heat from it.
Letting out a sigh in his heart, he felt that he could not go on like this any longer.
He must at least get up and move about. If he were to freeze, he might end up becoming dizzy and slip into unconsciousness at any moment!
In such type of environment, if he were to close his eyes, he did not know if he could even wake up again!
Youyou stood up. Holding onto the jacket tighter, he stomped a few times on the spot and did a turn in the cave.
Wild winds began to blow into the cave.
Due to the peculiar structure of the trap, the winds in the cave were exceptionally strong. They continued to blow into it wildly, feeling more like a torrent of iced water to him.
He gave up. After considering carefully, he decided that he needed to find a hiding place that could fend the winds better.
He sought for a corner and sat down. Thereafter, he looked up at the sky.
The sky was now brighter.
Where were the two now, and when would they return to get him?
