Qin Yun felt that he was too miserable. Born as a low-level guide was one thing, but being beaten up by sentinels instead of being protected was just too much…
Elberna: “…Don’t think that I don’t know that you are cursing me inside…your guiding tendrils are pinching me!”
The arctic fox jumped lightly onto Qin Yun’s shoulder, and its big tail circled around his neck like a scarf. Elberna rubbed his painful temples and glanced at his spiritual link.
“It is very alert to others but not to you.” Elberna scratched the arctic fox’s chin, “You seem to get along well with any sentinel’s spiritual link.”
Qin Yun: “That’s because I have little influence. A spiritual link will only show tension and submission when it senses danger or a spiritual link that is more powerful than itself. I don’t have a spiritual link, so naturally, this situation does not exist.”
Elberna thought that he had a point. He and Qin Yun were rushing to the front line. Sennas went to the northern logistics camp midway. The other guides also followed sentinel to various districts.
“The worst of it should all be at our area.” Elberna quickly assembled a small aircraft. He glanced at Qin Yun, “You’ll have to go alone first. Is that alright?”
Qin Yun raised his eyebrows, “You have to trust me, sir.” After Qin Yun said that, he got into the single driver’s seat.
Elberna waved his hand. He had just been meticulously sorted out by Qin Yun, and all his stats could be said to have reached the maximum. Moreover, with a fox-type natural spiritual link, he could move at a fast pace even without an aircraft.
“Okay…” Qin Yun took a deep breath and put on a protective mask. He calmly encouraged himself, “Jiayou! Qin Yun! More than a hundred psychopaths are waiting for you!”
Although the creatures on G-Star were low-level amphibians, their large size, thick blood, and tough skin made it necessary to have at least two sentinels to kill one.
When Qin Yun arrived, dozens of sentinels were besieging a giant snake nest. Due to the large number and size, the sentinels’ consciousness was extremely chaotic and scattered. Qin Yun could feel from a distance that several spiritual links were on the verge of going crazy.
“Oh, my God…” Qin Yun opened the skylight of the aircraft and looked down, “That grey wolf has a really hot temper…” He didn’t dare to jump into the battlefield recklessly, so he flew lower, attempting to extend guiding tendrils, and the grey wolf clearly spotted him.
“Good boy, buddy.” Qin Yun’s guiding tendrils slowly touched the wolf’s back to its head, “Help your master bite the tail of that snake… yes, that’s the one!”
The grey wolf’s sentinel raised his head, and Qin Yun recognised him at a glance, “Zhang Jin!”
As fellow Asians, Zhang Jin’s impression of Qin Yun was undoubtedly deep. His emotions had gradually calmed down, and he cut a 30-meter giant python in half with one swift movement. He stood on a huge rock and faced Qin Yun as he opened his arms, “Brother! Jump down!”
Qin Yun jumped out of the c0ckpit without hesitation.
Zhang Jin was shocked when he caught him, “Why are you so heavy?!”
Qin Yun pointed to the medical bag on his back, “This thing weighs 20 kilograms.” He quickly stretched out his tendrils to scan the other party’s consciousness cloud1some sort of their energy storage, frowned and said, “Have you been in continuous combat for over 96 hours now? What about the previous guide?”
“Returned to the logistics a long time ago.” Zhang Jin was a little helpless. His grey wolf was very excited when he saw Qin Yun. He whimpered and hugged the guide’s thigh, “The guides in your group have such poor stamina. Except for you, everyone else is like a little girl.”
Qin Yun said angrily, “I’m sorry, I’m not a little girl.”
Zhang Jin laughed loudly and punched him, “You are our comrade.” He said and gave a beautiful military salute, “Guide Qin! Thank you for your timely support!”
“Enough with the banter.” Qin Yun smiled and kicked him. He quickly treated Zhang Jin’s injuries and gave his grey wolf some mental guiding in between, “I’ll run by myself later; you don’t need to protect me. Kill whoever you want, and strive for a quick victory.”
Zhang Jin was not very reassured, “Is it not too tiring to guide while running? Do you have enough strength?”
Qin Yun, “Don’t worry, there are only a few snakes. I trust your speed.”
Zhang Jin bumped fists with him, “Be careful; don’t use your tendrils if there’s not enough time.” He joked, “Just lick all those big men… you won’t lose out, haha!”
Qin Yun’s answer was to roll his eyes and gesture with his middle finger.
It was not an easy task to navigate through the chaos with a huge medical kit on one’s back. Qin Yun’s guiding tendrils were almost never retracted. If visualized, it would be like continuously slapping people in turns…
Many sentinels knew him, so after running half a circle, Qin Yun was followed by a bunch of wolves, baboons, hyenas and other spiritual links.
“I’ve tickled you for long enough.” Qin Yun protested to the female baboon hanging around his neck while ‘slapping its hands’. The spiritual link acted coquettishly at him, stretching out its arms to reveal its creaking nests.
“…” Qin Yun couldn’t bear it and ‘threw’ it out, “Scratch that kind of place yourself!”
In general, among low-level sentinels, wolves and hyenas had the highest number of spiritual links. Because their hunting habits were similar, the sentinels cooperated relatively well. Qin Yun figured out their hunting formations after running around a few times. In the end, he only needed to stand in a few fixed points, and his guiding tendrils could cover all the sentinels.
Seeing that there were fewer and fewer giant pythons, Qin Yun’s guiding tendrils slowly relaxed. Elberna took the lead in withdrawing from the battlefield and came to his side to protect him.
“…What’s wrong?” Qin Yun’s pupils were dark, but the whites of his eyes glowed with a faint golden colour. Elberna didn’t expect that his mental power was so strong that he could take care of dozens of sentinels and at the same time be distracted to talk to him.
“There is news from the logistics department that an unidentified spacecraft has landed on G Star.” His arctic fox stretched out his pink tongue and carefully licked the sweat on Qin Yun’s forehead, “It may be someone from the Olympus Alliance.”
Qin Yun frowned, “How many have come?”
Elberna’s expression didn’t look good, “Four spaceships…if they are all full, there may be more than 500 people.” After a pause, he added, “And most of them are sentinels.”
Qin Yun: “Do we have any reinforcements?”
Elberna: “The distress signal has just been sent out. Even if reinforcements are dispatched from the nearest air station, it will take four hours.”
Qin Yun stopped talking. The giant python had almost been killed. The golden colour in his eyes was slowly fading. Zhang Jin and his grey wolf were waiting aside.
“Major General!” He gave a military salute to Elberna with a worried look on his face, “The baboons discovered the spaceship two kilometres away.”
Qin Yun couldn’t see the expression on Elberna’s face, who had his back turned to him, but the arctic fox suddenly lowered his body, his ears drooped, and he let out an angry threatening growl.
He subconsciously stretched out his guiding tendrils and rubbed arctic fox’s back soothingly. Elberna’s originally tense shoulders slowly relaxed.
“I’ll have Zhang Jin to take you away first.” Elberna’s expression had returned to calm. He turned to look at Qin Yun, “You are the guide, and you have the priority to survive on the battlefield.”
“That’s only for the mid and high-level guide.” Qin Yun retorted calmly, “I am a low-level guide and a warrior. I have an obligation to stay on the front line.”
Elberna opened his mouth. He wanted to say something more but was interrupted again by Qin Yun, “And you can’t guarantee that there is no guide on the enemy spaceship.”
In a battle, having a guide and not having a guide could be said to be two completely different concepts. As long as there was a guide, even a single-digit sentinel could defeat hundreds of sentinel only teams unless there was a high-level sentinel who could suppress the guide, the presence of a guide was the decisive factor in victory or defeat in any situation.
“Now we can only try to delay as much as possible to buy time for the logistics camp.” After all, Elberna was a major general and the most important soldier. He certainly understood what was most important on the battlefield, “Qin Yun, you and Zhang Jin are in charge of the ambush. If you encounter a team with a guide… don’t engage head-on.”
“If you can’t beat them, just run away…” Qin Yun comforted him, “I got it, I got it. I’ll definitely run fast!”
Elberna: “…It’s still better to fight if we can win!”
There were only ten people in Zhang Jin’s group, including Qin Yun. They were ambushing at the location closest to the landing point of the spaceship. Qin Yun stretched out his guiding tendrils as much as possible. In the current situation, it would be most advantageous if he could sense the enemy’s movements first.
“There were only eight sentinels in the three o’clock direction, and there is no guide.” Qin Yun lowered his voice and said, “We can outflank them from the rear…It’s a good idea to take care of them one by one.”
Zhang Jin: “What are you going to do when we are out there?”
Qin Yun thought for a while, “I’ll hide here. Come back to me after you finished dealing with it.”
Zhang Jin hesitated for a while and then made up his mind. He nodded towards Qin Yun and mouthed be careful.
When there was only one person left, Qin Yun had no worries. He did not retract his tendrils immediately and tried to explore in another direction. When he was halfway through, his consciousness cloud was suddenly attacked!
“High-level guide!” In just a moment, Qin Yun was able to judge the opponent’s level. He quickly withdrew his tendrils, but it was already too late. The opponent’s mental network was relentlessly pursuing him, and the location where he was hiding would be exposed in minutes.
The whites of Qin Yun’s eyes were completely dyed golden. He quickly jumped up and subconsciously ran in the opposite direction. The other party’s guide actually chased after him without even bringing a sentinel.
“The high-level guide is really awesome!” Qin Yun thought angrily, not to mention that he was just a low-level guide. Even if Zhang Jin and the others were here, they had no confidence that they could defeat such a person.
Qin Yun only felt an aircraft passing over his head and thought it was the high-level guide. Just as he was about to turn around, he heard a ‘bang,’ and the seemingly high-level looking thing fell headfirst to the ground.
Qin Yun: “…”
The skylight of the aircraft banged, and someone kicked a hole from the inside. Then a face with half of it covered in blood popped out.
Before Qin Yun could react, one of his guiding tendrils was forcibly cut off. The pain was so painful that he almost knelt on the ground.
A pair of field boots appeared in his field of vision. Qin Yun reluctantly raised his head. The blood on half of the other person’s face was like water dripping down on the camouflage uniform. He opened his eyes wide and saw clearly the imperial emblem on the man’s chest.
“One of our own?” the man said to himself. He frowned and twitched his nose a few times, “A guide?”
Qin Yun was in so much pain that he couldn’t speak. He thought that even though his pheromone was so weak, the person could still smell it. It was like a combat nose among dog’s noses!
“No spiritual link? Low-level guide?” The man snorted and said contemptuously, “Trash.”
Qin Yun: “…”
The other party walked behind him in a few steps. The enemy guide had already caught up with them and was stunned when he saw an additional person.
Only then did Qin Yun realize that the man who called him trash also had no spiritual link.
“Be careful!” Qin Yun endured a headache and hurriedly warned, “He is high-level…” Before he could finish his words, the other party had already taken action.
“Want to seduce me?” The man narrowed his eyes and grabbed the high-level guide’s neck with one hand. He lowered his head and smelled it and then showed a disgusted expression, “Only you?” As soon as he finished speaking, the guide was like a puddle of water fell to the ground, and the blush on his face spread to the root of his neck.
Qin Yun was dumbfounded. He tentatively moved the guiding tendrils, only to find that the other party had completely withdrawn from his consciousness. As for the beautiful antelope spiritual link… it was kneeling at the man’s feet, rubbing the man’s dirty trousers back and forth.
“What… happened to him?” Qin Yun asked in disbelief.
“Bonding heat. Forced to go into heat.” The man shook his legs as if to get rid of something dirty, “I just responded to a few pheromones. Ha. Things without self-control.”
Qin Yun: “…Are you sentinel? Where is your spiritual link?!”
“Do you think I’m the same as you?” The man squinted at him with his half-eye that was not stained with blood and smiled sarcastically, “Shut the hell up, sanitary pads.”
Qin Yun: “…”
