Chapter 195
People usually would develop a habit of giving orders when they were in high positions long enough . Even if it was not very obvious . There were always traces to show . Without close observation, Anfey could tell who was in lead .
Sometimes experience could help him make the right judgements, but those judgements could not be explained in words . If Anfey were asked to talk about the reasons why he believed that a particular person was in charge, he probably could not explain . He just knew it .
A legion like this one would pay attention to their surroundings to look for traces and be ready for their leader’s orders when they were on assignment . Maybe when they waited for their next order, it would sent out a message that Anfey could catch with his instinct .
A wind blade arrow formed in Anfey’s hand . Anfey slowly pulled his bowstring . This wind blade arrow looked terrifying . It was three yards long, and the end of arrow was about 12 inches wide . The whole arrow had a great flow and looked very powerful . It was not hard for Anfey to make an arrow like this since he gotten the ability to turn elements into real objects .
Anfey was far less powerful than top level leaders in terms of comprehensive power . However, he could be a genius in some ways .
Anfey was very wise . He never thought he was a genius . Maybe things could be just handed to other people without any cost, but not to Anfey . If Anfey had tried to follow the traditional way to practice magic and combat power, it would have taken him a long time to catch up with those top level leaders . Anfey could not wait so long and did not have time to wait . He knew he had to figure out a different way .
The difference between him and the most powerful leaders could not be made up by practicing hard . Time was the key . Saul was a highly powerful leader, but he still spent a long time practicing magic every day . So did Ernest . How long had it been since they started to learn magic and combat power? They had probably started before Anfey was born .


It seemed like it would take a very long time to catch up with most powerful leaders on the same path . Therefore, from the very beginning, Anfey did not want to follow the traditional way to learn magic and combat power . He was not sure whether he had chosen the correct route . Fortunately, he acquired something else—martial arts .
As the gigantic arrow shot out, it flew over two hundred yards with great momentum in the blink of an eye and hit a soldier in the chest . With a huge sound, that soldier’s upper body was shattered into pieces . The body pieces were flying everywhere . There was a soldier five or six yards behind him who got hurt as well . His lower body below his waist had gone . He screamed in pain, with only half a bloody body left .
The rest of the soldiers were shocked but did not panic . They quickly hid themselves and quietly waited as they held their breath .
Anfey jumped off the tree . Their hiding places were like a joke for Anfey since he could clearly see everything within a radius of ten miles . With this ability, hunting and counterattack was a game for Anfey .
Another arrow formed in Anfey’s hand . This time the arrow was quite small, even smaller and narrower than a regular arrow . Anfey let his fingers go and the arrow quietly shot out . A soldier leaning against an ancient tree heard some sound behind him . The arrow went in from the back of his head and came out from his forehead before he even knew what happened .
This shot was even more terrifying than before . The rest of the soldiers lowered their bodies even more . They almost curled themselves into balls . Unfortunately, they made a big mistake . If they kept moving at high speed, it would have been hard for Anfey to shoot them . Anfey did not find his targets with vision . Instead, he did it with his instincts . It took some time to aim at a target . Those soldiers who stayed right where they were turned themselves into targets .
A soldier took out a magic scroll and released a magic signal . At the same time, the other mercenary group with seven mercenaries and over a dozen of people from Shansa Empire had walked to where Anfey and Suzanna departed . They stayed there and talked about something . Obviously, the traces on the ground leading to two different directions had confused them . They did not know which direction they should follow .
Within Anfey’s observation range, Anfey saw the soldiers from Shansa Empire had sent out signals to ask others to surround the area . The soldiers and mercenary group with the seven mercenaries stood together and turned around to point at where Anfey was . The mercenary who showed interest in the fish soup squad down and did some studying . He firmly shook his head and pointed in the direction Suzanna and Riska had taken .

Anfey had changed his position and jumped into the tree . A soldier from Shansa Empire laid in a pit . No one could see him from the ground level, but Anfey could tell his location since he had half his head out from Anfey’s angle . It was enough for Anfey to get him with half of his head sticking out .
Anfey started to gather elements and aimed at that soldier . As the element arrow hit him, his whole forehead was cut off by his element arrow . Yellow, white and red fluid came out of his head .
Others in the same unit start to panic . Almost at the same time, they all released their magic signals . One magic signal meant they found the trace of their enemy . Several magic signals released together meant they needed help .
Anfey slowly pulled his bowstring again . He saw two black dots out of the corner of his eye . He was shocked and hid himself in the leaves .
A male and female mage flew in the air towards him . Maybe because they were high up, Anfey did not see them . They could have changed this whole hunting game . They flew straight towards Anfey . Their location in the sky was obvious . Anfey found them first, but they had not seen Anfey yet . Anfey quietly waited there . As the two mages observed their surroundings, he immediately shot his arrow . Because he was not sure about their combat power, Anfey aimed at that female mage first . Anfey reasoned that women’s powers usually were not as good as men’s . Female mages were not as passionate about their power as men either . They rarely devoted themselves to practice . It was easy to make this kind of judgement since most of the more powerful people on Pan Continent were male .
That female mage released a magic dome shining with yellow lights . The magic dome was shattered . The moment she felt she was attacked, she switched her position . Anfey’s shot did not kill her . It only got her leg . That female mage fell from the sky with a scream .
Anfey ran out as fast as a flying arrow . He ran towards the falling female mage .
"Be careful!" the male mage screamed . A lightning bolt shot at Anfey .


Anfey ran out as fast as a flying arrow . He ran towards the falling female mage .
"Be careful!" the male mage screamed . A lightning bolt shot at Anfey .
As the male mage released the lightning magic, a wind blade showed up underneath Anfey’s feet . With the wind blades, Anfey was able change the position of his body and flew toward the female mage .
The female mage was covered in blood . Her body was like a rotten piece of wood falling . She rolled down and was submerged into the forest without a sound .
"Ah…" The male mage stared, his eyes wide . He released two big fire balls that chased after Anfey .
A flaming shield appeared on Anfey’s back and countered the attacks of the two fire balls . He jumped up, and his body created a parabola in the air . He threw himself into the forest .
Big fire balls, heat waves, and freezing stars hit where Anfey had fallen . However, Anfey managed to hide in another place . He was watching the magic show as he took off his mercenary uniform . He turned it over and put it back on . His clothes had been light grey before . After he turned the inside out, they became strange clothes in yellow, black and green . In his previous world, most people knew it as camouflage coat .
The magic show continued . Anfey quietly followed behind the male mage . Anfey loaded a wind blade arrow . Unexpectedly, that male mage suddenly turned around . That electric arc just swept through Anfey .
Anfey felt numb and felt there was no strength left in him . He did not practice ancient martial arts for nothing . Anfey screamed in a low pitch . The moment the big fire ball swallowed him, he regained his body control .
With a huge sound, the big fire ball exploded on the ground . Anfey had run over a dozen of yards away and hid behind an ancient tree .

What had just happened? Anfey could not help frowning . He was in thought for a while, and it suddenly struck him . He had shot the wind blade arrow . When wind blades turned into real objects, they did not have magic surges . That was why the opponents did not notice him . When he shot the wind blade arrow again, the male mage noticed magic surges and attacked Anfey beforehand .
Anfey felt better after he noticed what had just happened . Anfey took out two arrows from his Dimensional ring and loaded one on the bow and had the other one between the little finger and ring finger . He watched the Shansa Empire soldiers trying to surround him . He slowly walked below the male mage . He looked up but he could not see that male mage’s face, only two big feet .
Slowly and quietly he pulled the bowstring . As the arrow shot out, the male mage’s magic shield suddenly shattered . When Anfey just had a smile on his face, the male mage had bright red light on him and countered Anfey’s shooting . The opponent released two magic shields at the same time .
Anfey rushed forward as the big fire ball exploded two yards behind him . He could even feel the heat waves . Anfey yelled in a low pitch . He slightly bent his legs and kneeled on the ground . He slid forward with the momentum . His upper body leaned back, almost touching the ground . He had already pulled the bowstring and taken another shot .
The second attack was too fast: the male mage did not have time to release a new magic shield . The arrow went in through his groin and came out from his chest . He could even feel the arrow tearing his body apart . Later his sensation had gone . Everything turned into endless darkness .
