Chronicles of Primordial Wars

Chapter 216 - The bat in the giant pit

Translated by Lesyt Team
Edited by Ilesyt


This time Chacha and Caesar also came with Shao Xuan. Chacha searched in the sky, and if he found anything abnormal, he would warn Shao Xuan about it.

Going up from the foot of the mountain, they found themselves surrounded by black miasma. If a junior totem warrior came here, he may not be able to withstand it.

Even Ke Ke and the others felt uncomfortable.

“Ah-Xuan, when you were here last time, did you see all these?” Ke Ke asked.

“No, last time there was only miasma in the cave, and on the mountain there was grass and other plants.” Shao Xuan said.

But now, none of them could see a tree. The trees were dead and rotting, and there was no fresh green grass.

That was caused by the miasma.

Everyone looked a little nervous. They knew that this task was quite difficult.

Shao Xuan stopped walking and then listened carefully.

He heard the sound he had heard when he had been here for the first time. That  was the rhythmic sound of air and it also sounded like one’s breath.

“What’s wrong, Ah-Xuan?” Walking behind Shao Xuan, Gui He asked.

“What did you find?” Ao, walking in the front, also stopped.

Others couldn’t hear that breathing, including Ao.

“It’s here.” Said Shao Xuan.

“What’s here?” Ta thought of something, and then looked serious, “That bat leader?”

Shao Xuan nodded.

“Didn’t you say he went somewhere else?” Ke Ke turned to look at the distant mountain.

Looking from here, you could see the distant mountain was much higher than the mountains in the surrounding area. It was surrounded by the clouds, and its peak was covered by snow. The mountain was where the members of the hunting team had seen the bats fly to, and later it was proven that it was occupied by the bats.

“I don’t know why, but I am sure that the bat leader is in this mountain.” Shao Xuan said while pointing at his feet.

Thinking about it, Ao said: “For now let’s go up and look.”

Last time they had dug fire crystals from the giant pit in the mountain, so they naturally had to go down into the giant pit.

Continuing to go up the mountain, Shao Xuan had Caesar stay away from there and made a gesture to Chacha in the sky to tell him not to follow him. In the wild, there is a strong sense of repellance between the ferocious beasts, causing bloody battles among them.

The mountain was not high, so everyone soon climbed to the top of the mountain and arrived at the giant pit.

Last time Shao Xuan had been here to look for some people. When he found this place, he had been able to see the situation inside the giant pit clearly, including the various plants growing on the walls of the pit. But now,  everything was different.

The fog, thicker than that at the foot of the mountain, surrounded them; and because of the miasma, the clear sky looked gloomy.

In the giant pit there was thicker miasma, so the men standing above it couldn’t. see the situation in it.

“What do we do?” Ta and Gui He were looking towards Ao. Since the chief was here, they naturally followed his orders.

“I will go in and take a look around with Dai first.”

As Ao spoke, he put down a bunch of rough grass rope made from rattan. He and Dai went down along the grass rope one after another.

Others were staring at the giant pit, even though they could not see anything.

There were no bats active around there. From the foot of the mountain to the top, no bats were seen, but Shao Xuan heard the rhythmic breathing sound and felt very worried.

Seeing Shao Xuan’s facial expression, Tuo said: “Don’t worry. The team leaders and the chief are here, we are safe.”

He still remembered the last time when he had entered into the cave with Mai and the others and had met the bat leader. They had almost been killed in a second.

Others thought so too.

Last time, five hunting teams had dug the fire crystals and had taken them back. They had told others about the vampire bat, so everyone was very afraid of it. But no one thought that the same accident would happen, because the team leaders and several senior totem warriors were here.

After all, the members of the hunting team were basically junior and intermediate totem warriors. Compared with those in the advance group, as well as the senior totem warriors, they were much inferior.

Ao and the two team leaders also thought that they could win if they worked together.

Only Shao Xuan was not so optimistic.

They waited for a while and did not hear any noise in the pit. Ao and Dai, who had been down there to look around, came up and neither of them had injuries.

“Only dead ferocious beasts.” Said Ao.

Dead ferocious beasts?

Last time they hadn’t seen those when they had been here.

“Anyway, go in first to see if there are fire crystals.” Dai said.

“Ta, Gui He, Wei,...” Ao pointed at five men, “Follow Dai and me into the pit. Shao Xuan, you also come with. The others stay outside and wait for the whistle.”

“Yes!”

All whom Ao had pointed at were senior totem warriors, and Shao Xuan, who could feel the fire crystals, naturally had to go with them. He was the only intermediate totem warrior, so he was guarded by the others.

Going down along the grass rope, Shao Xuan felt more and more confused.

“There must be something wrong.” Shao Xuan said.

The other people did not say anything, but Shao Xuan knew that they were listening.

After carefully checking around, they didn’t find any other creatures. Shao Xuan said, “Last time we came here, the giant pit was not so deep.”

When his feet finally touched the ground, Shao Xuan once again looked around.

But he still could not find anything.

The breathing sound could still be heard clearly. Shao Xuan only heard that rhythmic sound, but he could not confirm the location and was not sure whether it was far from him or not.

He felt more and more anxious.

At this moment,  it was noon and it was sunny outside the mountain.

However, in the giant pit it was as dark as the night.

The black miasma in the giant pit almost blocked all the light above.

But fortunately the people here had eye-sights better than others, so they saw the surrounding situation under the weak light. But they could only see nearby areas, and couldn’t see farther because of the dense miasma.

The bad smell was so strong that the people felt dizzy. They did not know whether it was the smell of the miasma.

Gui He stuffed a herb into his mouth to become clear headed, because he had been feeling faint.

That was why the chief didn’t have Ke Ke and the others come down. In this place, even Ke Ke and the other intermediate totem warriors could not stay conscious.

While thinking about it, Gui He turned around and saw Shao Xuan carefully looking around. He stopped thinking about it.

He was also an intermediate totem warrior, but he still looked very sober !

Compared to last time when he had entered the bat cave, Shao Xuan could better withstand the miasma. Even though the miasma was thicker, he could hold on.

“This place has changed a lot.” Shao Xuan said in a low voice.

Last time the five hunting teams had dug fire crystals, so they had left a lot of holes.

Now there were also holes on the ground, but compared to those made by the hunting teams, they were much larger!

If you looked at those holes carefully, you could see there were some deep claw marks next to them.

Everyone knew who had made them.

However, judging from that claw marks, the bat leader had grown much bigger if those were its scratches.

In the giant pit there was a strong odor.

There were many corpses. Some were just skeletons; others still had fur, but looked very dry, as if all the water in their bodies was sucked away.

These skeletons and those with fur belonged to large ferocious beasts.

“Did ‘it’ kill them?” Ao whispered to Shao Xuan.

“Yes, that should be the case.”

It was the most likely that the bat leader killed them.

However, they did not know why, after the bat leader led its brothers and grabbed the other site, it still came back here. It seemed that it had stayed here for a long time, more than a year, judging from the skeletons.

The bat leader was able to catch these large beasts, so it must be very strong.

Everyone became vigilant.

“Where… are the fire crystals? Shao Xuan, can you find them?” Ao asked.

This was the priority of their trip, so others were also listening carefully and waiting for Shao Xuan’s reply.

“Yes!” Shao Xuan said.

“Where?” Ao held back the excitement in his heart and whispered.

“Under your feet, chief...” Shao Xuan said while thinking about something. “Ten steps away from the right of Ta, there is one. Behind Gui He, not far away from him, there is another one. It was not like this before.”

So many?

Ao bent over and intended to dig with a knife. But when he moved his feet, he felt he stepped on a lump, After he put away the soil with the knife, he saw the crystal whose texture was very familiar to him. Although the light was dark and he couldn’t see it clearly, he was sure that that was a fire crystal!

Ao stopped breathing for a while and fixed his eyes on the crystal at his foot, which was as big as a thumb. It was the biggest crystal he had dug in his life. When he was young, he had dug one by accident, but he had been completely lucky at that time. Many people couldn’t dug one in their lifetime, but he had done it. But at that time, he had gotten just a small one, which still made him feel excited for a long time.

But now, Ao looked at the crystal at his foot and couldn’t believe it.

So easy? Was digging up a big fire crystal so easy?

Even as a chief, Ao failed to respond in that moment.

The so-called digging was just like this?

No, no way!

When Ao picked up the fire crystal, he suddenly had a strong sense of danger...

“Be careful!!”

Ao and Shao Xuan shouted almost at the same time.

But at the next moment, they found that their vision was blurred. Suddenly they had a serious headache and lost their sight and hearing. After a few seconds, they calmed down slowly, but they couldn’t hear any sound.

Ao could see Shao Xuan opening his mouth to say something, who was not far from him. Dai, next to him, holding the huge stone hammer, opened his mouth like the others.

Everyone seemed to have lost their hearing at the moment, so they could not hear the voice of the others or the sound outside the pit. But they could clearly hear their heartbeats.

Bang bang!Bang bang!

That sounded like thunder in the chest.

By intuition, Ao looked in a direction.

Over there, a shadow was approaching fast.

He could see its folded wing hands and strong hind legs. It looked tall but moved  swiftly and flexibly.

When it approached, Ao could see its open mouth, its nose bone and throat were moving weirdly.

This should be why they couldn’t hear any sound.

The bat leader!

At the moment, Ao first rushed to Shao Xuan to grab his collar and throw him down to where they put the rattan, instead of thinking about how to hide the fire crystal, or how to confront with the big guy coming at him rapidly.

Here, they could not hear any sound, and Ao was not sure whether those above the pit could hear the sound in the giant pit. Now what he had to do was to keep Shao Xuan away from this battle, and then he had to work with the other six people to fight with this bat leader!

Shao Xuan was thrown out of the battle circle by Ao.

The others did not need more instruction from Ao, as they had long been ready to fight.

All of these seven people were experienced totem warriors, and were leaders of hunting teams or groups. But no one knew what they were faced with.

This was a ferocious beast that was more powerful than the ones they had met in the mountain while hunting! They needed to work together, and in the shortest time, they should try their best to kill this beast!

Closest to the bat leader, Dai took action before the others, and on his thick arms, clear totem patterns appeared. His arms became much stronger and held a stone hammer the length of a man. But it seemed he did not feel the weight of the stone hammer, as he quickly swung it towards the head of the bat leader.

Swinging it, in a very short period of time, Dai’s arm accumulated strength, and he suddenly hit it.

Visible shockwaves spread out from the collision, and the miasma around there was forced away from that small area at that moment.

If there was no interference by the bat leader, the whistling sound would have been heard when the stone hammer was swung. It was as if the the hammer was splitting apart the air.

No scattering stone pieces could be seen and no hitting sound could be heard.

However, at that moment everything stopped moving.

When the stone hammer approached the bat leader, it raised its folded claws. It stopped the hammer with its wing, which hit it heavily.

While Dai attacked that bat leader, others also took action.

Gui He chopped at the bat with his sword, which was bitten by the bat.

Bitten by the teeth of the bat, the stone sword seemed to be fixed in place no matter how hard Gui He tried, he couldn’t draw back his sword.

At the same time, Ta, Wei and the others attacked it, but before they got close to it, the bat leader flapped its wings to hit them.

After striking twice, Dai was slammed into the wall. His whole body was embedded in the pit’s wall, and if he was not strong enough, he would probably have been flattened.

Ao, who had thrown Shao Xuan out, ran back to one side. The totem power in his body was instantly fully activated. When his wrist moved, the spear in his hand  rotated at a high speed. The flow of air pushed away the surrounding miasma and the spear stabbed at the neck of the bat!

However, the spear in Ao’s hand did not touch the neck of the bat. It was caught by the weird claw with an even more powerful force. His fierce and swift attack was resisted.

Ao felt the spear in his hand being pulled away by an even more powerful force. His right hand holding the spear felt extremely painful, as if he was stabbed by thousands of hot awls.
