'Black feathered wings, gray skeletal bodies, and curved horns… I don't recognize them.'
Noah tried to link the ident.i.ty of those creatures to the bestiary inside his mind, but he couldn't find any match.
The fauna and flora of the Immortal Lands were radically different from those of the Mortal ones, it wasn't surprising that Noah couldn't recognize those magical beasts.
'They must have been dormant deep underground. Earth element? I can't be sure. Yet, it's certain that they are the pack of the being that has released the cry from before.'
Noah's mind worked at full speed to find ways out of that situation.
Understand the threat, study the environment, and choose the safest path, Noah was going through those processes in a matter of instants.
He had even activated the Divine deduction technique to improve his thinking speed, he wasn't holding anything back in front of such a threat.
'The leader of the pack should be at the peak of the sixth rank or even be half-step inside the divine ranks. A handful of rank 6 creatures as captains, a hundred of rank 5 beasts as soldiers, and thousands of rank 4 p.a.w.ns, we might be forced to abandon this place.'
The width and power of the pack of winged beasts could match any of the three big nations, it could even be considered superior.
Only the Shandal Empire with its G.o.d could overpower such a force since it appeared that the pack lacked a divine being.
'I can't affect this situation, I can only try to survive until I reach Elder Julia and Elder Austin.'
Noah realized that almost immediately, the pack of winged beasts was simply too numerous and powerful, he could only escape.
His gaze went on the other envoys, and some coldness filled his reptilian pupils while his mind made plans about them.
'Andrew can't run away on its own, he can be a good bait. These are the territories of the Papral nation, so Faith should know escape routes toward safe areas. June can use her status to find protection under the Council, but my situation is a bit different.'
Noah cursed inside his mind when he understood his options.
He would just follow Faith toward one of the safe areas of the Papral nation if he was a normal envoy and leave to the force behind him to reward the Council.
However, he was the Demon Prince of the Hive, the most promising new talent of the Mortal Lands.
His value would be incredible in the eyes of any force, especially since he belonged to the weakest country among the important ones.
Also, he was Divine Demon's heir, and the Papral nation was the home of the Ravaging Demon, the traitor of the twelve demon sects.
Noah didn't know how much Ravaging Demon knew about him, but he couldn't take any change against a being that was at least in the fifth rank.
Calm filled his mind when he understood that he couldn't seek political asylum inside the territories of the Papral nation.
Hundreds of thoughts had surged inside of Noah's mental sphere since its walls had stopped trembling, but only a few instants had pa.s.sed in the outside world.
Dust and debris were still falling from the winged beasts' bodies, it was as if the Divine deduction technique was hastening the pa.s.sage of time inside Noah's mind.
'It would take me less than a week to return to the forest of White woods if I use the secret technique, the Shadow sprint, and the Warp spell. I must go now!'
Noah thought and turned toward the south to prepare himself for the fastest escape that he was capable of.
He didn't care about Faith at all, and June was far safer than him in that situation since she could rely on the Council and on the escorts that had accompanied her through the travel.
However, he was alone, he could only rely on himself for his survival.
Yet, a sudden sense of danger filled his mind.

Noah felt helpless when he saw that winged beasts rose in the sky from the territories along the western coast, it seemed that they took a bit more to awaken due to the distance from the rest of the pack.
Every magical beast or plant that couldn't fly had instantly become a prey.
The tide of migrating magical beasts appeared in Noah's eyes, but he didn't fear them.
They were too scared, their only focus was to escape that situation.
Such an innate fear had been able to suppress their aggression, which made the ground the safest place where to hide for the moment.
Noah didn't slow down his descent and crashed on the ground, creating a large hole in the terrain that flung away the weaker beasts that were escaping on that spot.
Noah punched the terrain as he kept on diving underground, he was basically creating a large cave where he could reorganize.
The sky was the territory of the winged beasts now, and the surface was their hunting area, only the underground could provide him with some safety.
Noah punched and kicked, shattering any st.u.r.dy rock that appeared as he dug deeper.
He stopped only when he saw that the sunlight couldn't reach his position anymore.
Faith's voice resounded in the underground area, and Noah turned to stare at the two women that had followed him underground.
The azure light radiated from the terrain illuminated their bloodied figures, it was clear that their bodies had yet to reach a stable state.
"Now, we wait."
Noah said as he crossed June and Faith to destroy the entrance to the underground area.
