“No way! It would take that long?” Lewis was appalled.
His arms fell to his sides and he felt completely embarrassed.
“We don’t have enough materials and we had just left the forest.
Do we have to go back to get wood now? If we go back and forth like this, not only will it be dangerous, but it will also waste a lot of time.
” “Oh no, what should we do now?” “Yeah, do we have to go back into the New Moon Forest and change routes?” “I don’t dare go back.
I’d rather stay in a safe place.
” Everyone started chattering and it was starting to get hectic.
Lin Qi sighed helplessly.
Looking at the rushing river, he knew his system would be of no help here.
Just when he lost all hope of finding an alternative solution, a fizzling sound could be heard.
Everyone turned their gazes toward the noise and saw Yu Meng holding her magic staff as it was shooting out pale blue light.
“Ice Magic: Frost Burst!” .
In an instant, everyone was reminded that Yu Meng was an exceptional water and ice mage.
Due to the presence of water, she could make use of her ice magic.
Yu Meng used her magic to freeze the water surface so that it was solid enough for everyone to walk over.
“That was amazing, Yu Meng! I knew you could save us!” Lewis eagerly rushed over to her side.
However, Lin Qi found that every time Yu Meng used a spell, her expression twisted slightly to reveal her discomfort.
From the beginning until now, she had only cast three spells in a short period of time, but she was already panting.

COM That was because using magic also consumed one’s physical strength depending on the level of the spell cast.
The higher the level of the spell, the more physical strength would be depleted.
Young mages were not capable of storing magic energy in the early stages of their training.
Therefore, the price for using magic was the deterioration of physical strength.
When mages developed into archmages, they would have their very own magic energy storage.
Obviously, the current Yu Meng did not have any magic energy storage, so she had been using up her own physical strength that whole time.
Everyone was relying on her now.
Therefore, if the magic spell is broken, everyone would fall into the river, so she had to persevere no matter what.
She thought that her current mana consumption would allow her body to withstand it until she had crossed the river.
“Everyone, hurry up, don’t blame us when the ice starts to melt!” Lewis stood behind Yu Meng and commanded the people behind her like a leader.
“Hehe, Yu Meng, thanks to you, we can cross the river!” Lewis smiled cheekily and wanted to please Yu Meng, but at that moment, Yu Meng did not have the luxury to waste energy on him.
She had already begun to feel weaker.
Lin Qi walked behind her.
He soon discovered that step-by-step the ice was getting thinner and thinner.
It seemed that Yu Meng’s magic was about to be used up.
Looking ahead, she still had more than 50 meters to go.
Judging from the situation, she would not be able to keep going.
Sure enough, Yu Meng gripped her magic staff and knelt on the ice.
Seeing her pale-faced and panting, everyone was beginning to worry.
“No… No way! Did she use up all her magic energy?” Yu Meng had not expected to run out of magic energy so quickly.
It seems that she had overestimated her own strength.
Everyone could only stand on the ice as the river started to flow beneath their feet.
Suddenly, the ice on the other side had started to melt.
If they really fell into the rapids, they would surely die.
“Yu Meng, you… You’re okay, right?” Lewis saw that Yu Meng could no longer use magic, and his eyes showed a trace of despair.
“My magic energy… Has been used up.
” Lewis shouted loudly, “You… What good are you without your magic? I thought you were strong! What do you think we should do now? You’re going to get us all killed!” Yu Meng lowered her head.
She had always thought that she was a very outstanding mage, but at that moment, she finally realized how weak her magic truly was.
She could not even overcome a river.
“Yu Meng! I’m telling you, you can ignore the others, but you have to get me ashore!” “I’m sorry… I can’t” Lewis was starting to freak out after hearing Yu Meng’s apology.
To save himself a few more seconds, he even said to the guards, “Jump down!” “With so many of you gathered together, the temperature will increase, and the ice will melt faster.
So you have to jump down to give Yu Meng time to recover, and also for me to get to the other side safely!” The guards did not dare to disobey their master.
Just as they thought all hope was lost, Lin Qi interrupted them from behind.
“You don’t need to jump! I can help everyone!” That one sentence instantly had everyone’s eyes on him.
Upon hearing this, Lewis sneered, “Kid, if I recall correctly, you don’t even know how to use magic.
You’re nothing more than a piece of trash in New Moon City.
What right do you have to say that you can save anyone here?” “Oh? Do you have a better idea? Or do you only know how to sacrifice your own guards?” Lin Qi’s retort instantly made Lewis flush red in embarrassment and he gritted his teeth.
“Alright! Lin Qi, what do you have planned?” Lin Qi had just found a purple sweet potato from within his gourmet system storage.
It was not a normal sweet potato, but a Magic Sweet Potato that was shimmering with purple light.
After consuming a Magic Sweet Potato, one could recover a part of their mana, which could be considered a kind of magic medicine.
Lin Qi retrieved the sweet potato from the system storage and handed it to Yu Meng, who was panting in exhaustion.
He smiled and said, “Don’t panic.
Eat this sweet potato to fill your stomach!” As they watched Lin Qi hold out the sweet potato, everyone’s expression changed from full of hope to near despair.
They slowly lowered their heads.
“Lin Qi, do you think this is funny?” Yu Meng looked at Lin Qi with anger in her eyes.
Lewis, who was watching from the side, wanted to laugh and cry at the same time.
“Lin Qi, can you stop playing a fool? Hurry up and tell your guards to jump down! That way, we still have a chance to survive.
” Lin Qi’s face was calm.
He continued to hold out the sweet potato to Yu Meng.
“You have to believe me.
This sweet potato can really save everyone!” ‘A piece of sweet potato could really save so many people?’ Yu Meng refused to believe it.
However, when she raised her head, she found that Lin Qi’s eyes were unwavering and serious.
He did not seem to be joking.
“Really… Are you sure?” Yu Meng slowly took the sweet potato, half-believing, and half-doubting.
“Believe me, I wouldn’t lie to you!” The ice in front of them began to melt一getting closer and closer toward them.
Yu Meng decided to trust Lin Qi and gently took a few bites of the sweet potato.
All of a sudden, she could feel that the sweet potato she ate was vastly different from ordinary sweet potatoes.
In all honesty, she never liked sweet potatoes, but that sweet potato gave her an unusually good feeling.
She found that there seemed to be a surge of energy in her body.
