The next thing they heard was the sound of footsteps heading straight for the village.
The Black Demon Eagle was capable of triggering a beast riot!
Numerous beasts were living on the mountain. Occasionally, they would attack the village in a group. Only a single type of species would show up each time. However, they would come in a group of eight to nine beasts. The villagers had set up the traps outside the village. In addition to the resistance from the people, they were usually able to defeat the beasts.
However, it was different this time. Earlier on, the villagers were overpowered by the remaining two Black Demon Eagles, and now they had to deal with a beast riot!
Their footsteps sounded like thunder. Based on the sound of their footsteps, it seemed like there were at least 400 to 500 beasts rushing towards the village. Besides that, it sounded like the footsteps were coming from different species of beasts. There were several kinds of beast approaching the village.
Regardless of where the beast riot took place, it always turned out to be a disaster, and there would be few to no survivors at the end of the riot. Not to mention that they were only a small village with less than 100 people.
It had been a challenge for them dealing with the two black eagles. Now, they even had to overcome a beast riot. It seemed like they were destined to die this time.
"Leader, what do we do now?"
"Leader, we are being surrounded!"
"Leader, we are going to die!"
The atmosphere was full of despair. No one could think of a way to escape this disaster.
"The tree! Let's climb onto the tree!"!" Luo Zhanyu shouted. Although it was also dangerous on the tree, most of the beasts would not be able to reach them. Perhaps, they would be safer up in the tree!
Just as they were about to climb up onto the tree, someone shouted, "Gosh! There are birds! They are the Golden-Eyed Eagles!"
The sound of their wings flapping could be heard. They saw a big dark shadow in the sky heading towards their direction from the mountain. The dark shadow was, in fact, a big group of fierce birds!
It seemed like there were 200 to 300 birds heading towards the village. They were getting nearer and nearer. Some of the villagers who had sharper eyes recognized the species of the birds, and there was nowhere for them to escape! Everyone felt despair and was scared of dying.
Gu Xijiu had run out of ideas. Although she could teleport to safety, she could only bring one or two people to escape together with her. What about the rest of the villagers? Were these people destined to die?
"Damn it! Let's fight!"
"Yes! We have to fight till the end!"
The villagers decided that there was nothing more they could lose other than their lives. Therefore, they strengthened themselves up and fought valiantly against the beasts.
There was the sound of people crying, weapons crashing, beasts roaring, the sound of flapping wings and the sound of footsteps. All kinds of sounds could be heard, and it was so noisy to the extent that no one could hear what the other person was shouting.
It was at this chaotic moment that they heard the sound of a flute playing. It was coming from somewhere in the sky. The flute sound was so apparent even though it was noisy. It was as though the sound was ringing in everyone's ears.
The flute sound was very soothing, and it echoed between heaven and earth. It was like a waterfall that flowed through everyone's heart. It was like a blooming flower in the spring. It was like the full moon that hung in the clear sky, and it washed away all the darkness in the world.
Gu Xijiu's heartbeat raced faster, and she looked towards the direction where the flute sound was coming.
She could see a person fluttering on top of the tree. He was wearing a white robe, and his black hair was flying along with the wind. The ruby fox eyes pendant on his forehead was shining in the dark. He was playing the flute, and colorful lights were seen from his fingertips.
His body seemed to be surrounded by the clouds and framed with silver lights. There was also a bright light glowing along the silver lights.
