Home / Chapter 38 Nina was Mired

"Nina! Nina!" Glenn shouted continuously into his crystal ball, trying to contact Nina to determine her location.

After a sizzling sound, Nina communicated her message to Glenn. "Glenn, are you doing okay?"

"Yeah, I am fine. What about your situation? Are you in any trouble? Did you contact other people in our team?" Glenn was not delighted. From the images received from his crystal ball, Nina was running in a panic and was ready to cry out.

"Glenn, several people are chasing me -- people from the Compass School of sorcerers. I just heard from Lafite and Robin. They are coming for me. And Lowry is with me."

Lowry was really into Nina despite her permanently injured eye. However, he had neither good appearance nor prowess in terms of sorcery. Besides, he came across as awkward in movement. So Nina had refused to accept his love.

"Why are they doing that?" Glenn sounded rather anxious.

"It was Lowry. He discovered a Moon Chirper. When we were digging, it chirped and attracted them. Ah..."

In the crystal ball, Glenn saw that Nina drop to the ground. Then the ball became dark and the contact was lost.

"She is in real trouble. The students from the Compass School won't let her go with the Moon Chirper (a plant that is alive)." Glenn felt more worried.

The Moon Chirper was much sought after because it could double the efficiency of meditation, which could result in improvement of the practitioner's mental strength. One prerequisite was that the Chirper had to be in the moonlight to work. A considerable number of sorcerers were interested in getting one.

Glenn cared for Nina. So, the moment he realized the danger she was in, he sprinted toward Nina.

As for Nina, the place where she tripped turned from hard ground to a swamp, and she was stuck.

"Nina!" Lowry cried out.

Lowry's capabilities were mostly related to pharmaceutics and thus, they couldn't be put into use in rescuing Nina. Born into a fisher family, he had rough and dark skin, and he was slow with his words.

The Compass Schoolers were closing in. Since Nina was bogged, Lowry would undergo the same fate as her if he chose to stay.

And he stayed for the love of his life.

"Stop, or I will destroy the Chirper. I will definitely do it." Lowry threatened the pursuers while holding the Chirper firmly in his hand.

The way Lowry protected Nina was desperate. If Chris -- Nina's brother -- had been here, there wouldn't have been a problem. The siblings had worked on a sorcery that would be brought to maximum power when one of the pair played an auxiliary role, and they had succeeded. Unfortunately, Chris was not here. Lowry was the only one Nina's life depending on.

Lowry tightened his grip of the Chirper. The force made it scream like a baby, and its fluffy root swung as it wiggled its body.

"Is this a threat? Haha, We are not to be threatened. You do anything to the Chirper, and you will be dead." The head pursuer returned in the same menacing voice. But he was frightened by the prospect of the Chirper being ruined.

Nina was struggling in the mire, and she had been immersed from below her waist. Nina had her mask on. So, even though she was feeling pathetic, not knowing if she was going to die this way, nobody could catch her expressions.

"Hello, belle. I couldn't think of you dying so miserably. As long as you ask that stupid brat to give us the thing, you will be fine." A member from the chasing team approached Nina, and stopped at the edge of the mire.

"No! Don't you ever touch her! " lowry's threat turned into entreaty.

The hunting team had deemed Lowry as a coward who could not do something serious.

Nina's mask was thrown off.

"Pukey. What an ugly freak." The boy who produced a sorcery that peeled off Nina's mask retched. He then turned to Lowry, with a livid expression on his face. "You give me that thing in three seconds or I will destroy you!"

Nina was now exposed. She was completely terrified. If one could see through the mire, they would see her legs trembling.

On hearing the threat, Lowry had lost his courage and threw the Moon Chirper into the air.

The head of the pursuing team became suddenly alert and was ready to catch the Chirper.

"What the f*ck! What is that?" The chief cursed.

When the Chirper was thrown to the apex, a student who was not known to any of the students present at the scene was seen in the tree, just a few meters away behind the Chirper. He then squirted his tongue. The tongue extended unbelievably and rolled up the Chirper.

The student had hidden himself in the tree since the bullying scene began, and nobody had sensed anything about his being here. If Glenn had been on the spot, he would have sensed his existence through his enhanced olfactory function. Interestingly enough, this boy was the one who had stalked Glenn and escaped when Glenn realized that he was being followed.
