Thea arrived in the suburbs of Terentville and was not too far away from the Mount Thunder Sect..
Looking at the Blithe soldiers behind her, she ordered, “Wait for me here!”
“Understood!” They nodded.
Holding the Malevolent Sword in hand, Thea lifted her head to have a glimpse of the snow mountain in the distance.
Two days ago, a fierce battle had broken out here, and the entire region came under the relentless bombardment of combat aircraft. However, heavy snow had covered almost all traces of the battle that took place.
Thea began walking in the direction of the snow mountain in the distance.
Though she initially wanted to climb the mountain, she decided against it after contemplation. She would not be able to traverse tens of kilometers even if she took a whole day. Besides, the situation in Cansington was dire. She was worried that the enemy would call James, who would be provoked into action to save Quincy and the others. Not only that, James was in a weak condition. If he went, the likelihood of him returning alive was low.
After brief contemplation, she catalyzed True Energy. Immediately, the blood within her body churned, and she exuded a powerful aura that disrupted her concentration. She could hear screams of anguish in her mind.
At that moment, she developed a killing intent. Hurriedly, she catalyzed Ataraxia to suppress her desire.
Once she regained control, she pressed on.
Soon, she arrived at the Mount Thunder Sect. The entire region was turned to rubble, and many disciples of the Mount Thunder Sect were reconstructing the sect.
Thea’s appearance attracted their attention. Immediately, dozens of disciples surrounded her.
The moment Thea laid her eyes on them, her killing intention only grew stronger.
She dispersed her True Energy, sat in a lotus position on the ground, and catalyzed Ataraxia once more.
“Quick, inform the Sect Leader.” A few disciples hurriedly ran to inform their Sect Leader.
Soon, Jackson appeared.
Upon noticing Thea who was sitting in a lotus position with a pained expression on her face, he furrowed his eyebrows and murmured, “Why is she here?”
After a few minutes, Thea stood up.
Jackson asked, “Why are you here, Thea?”
She said, “Mr. Cabral, something happened in Cansington. As James is injured, he can’t use True Energy. So, he instructed me to come here to seek reinforcements…”
Hearing this, Jackson froze, then, he asked, “What happened?”
Thea said, “Some unknown people have captured James‘ friends to force him to hand over the Spirit Turtle’s core. The situation is dire. Mr. Cabral, we need your assistance.”
“Hmm… Got it.” Jackson nodded. “We should make haste. We will depart this instant.”
Thea said, “There’s a helicopter at the foot of the mountain that you can use to return to Cansington. Here is James‘ number. After arriving in Cansington, please contact him immediately.”
Hearing this, Jackson frowned. “Aren’t you returning too?”
“No, I have something else to deal with…”
Hearing this, Jackson did not hesitate. After giving his instructions, he left alongside a few disciples of the Mount Thunder Sect.
Meanwhile, Thea also left the Mount Thunder Sect. However, she did not wander too far. Instead, she lingered around the area.
She had come not only to seek Jackson’s reinforcement but also to search for the Demonic Sword hidden deep beneath the Snow Cavern.
