Chapter 12: The Mantis Is Here, How Far Would The Oriole Be
Wu Qingsong was unprepared for this sudden change, but soon he realized that these people and Klein could not be of the same group.
“Wolfmen!” Ling said in a soft and alarmed tone at the side.
Soon after, a few wolfmen jumped down from the basement entry. The first wolfman had run up to them at this time.
“Black-haired half-elf, we came here to save you!”
“Many thanks!” Wu Qingsong said. “But…”
“Stand back for a little bit!”
A tall wolfman rushed up from the back. Wu Qingsong took a step back subconsciously. He raised an axe and slammed it against the chain, and followed by another. The chain that had been trapping Wu Qingsong for nearly a month was thus cut off from the middle and landed on the ground.
“Come on!” said a wolfman in a standard armor impatiently.
“You guys are?” Wu Qingsong quickly got out of the cage and asked at the same time.
The only wolfmen who could relate to him were the wolf girls he had saved before, but he could not believe that these wolfmen would venture into this place to save him just for this reason.

“There’s not enough time!” the armored wolfman said. “We’ll talk about this later!”
They suddenly dodged into an alley on the side of the road. After a while, a small team of about a dozen soldiers hurriedly ran past the street in front of them. They waited a bit and walked along the alley towards another direction.
“We are from the rebel army!”
Wu Qingsong could not tell apart the faces of the wolfmen in the dark, but even if it was during the day, he might not necessarily be able to do so. He could only differentiate them by their voices, and it seemed the one talking just now was the first wolfman that jumped into the basement.
Wu Qingsong felt Ling’s hand gripping harder. Her father and uncle both died in the battles with the rebels. Although she might not hold any feelings for them since whether they were dead or not, her fate might still be the same, but it was definitely more or less painful for her.
And so he held her hand tighter and pulled her …Read More »
