Teacher Zhuang looked at my efforts and stared, she asked: “What are you doing?”
I said: “Teacher, this bracelet is too valuable, please take it back, I really can’t accept it.”
Oddly, Teacher Zhuang did not become angry this time, instead she looked at me cheekily. I made a great effort to remove the bracelet, but no matter how I tried, it couldn’t be removed from my wrist. Teacher Zhuang said: “It’s no use, you need a special incantation to remove it, and without my incantation, you will obediently wear it for the rest for your life, you silly brat.”
Listening to her, my heart felt an unknown emotion. I realised that Teacher Zhuang not only treated her students with kindness, she treated us as her own children. She radiated a maternal warmth.
Teacher zhuang looked at me, surprised, and asked: “What’s wrong, you don’t like it? Why are you looking at me like that?”
I could feel tears welling up in my eyes, I said: “Teacher Zuang, thank you, you have let me feel human warmth, I……”
Teacher Zhuang walked towards me and put her hand in my shoulder, saying: “Child, what’s wrong? Looking at you gives me the feeling that you must have had an unhappy childhood.”
I wiped my tears away and said: “When I was younger, other than my grandmother, no one really cared about me, and my mother never looked in my eyes once. It was alright until my grandmother died a few years ago. At the time, I fell into such a deep despair, that the whole world seemed dark in my eyes. That is, only until I met you and Jisue, only then was I able to see a gleam of light in the dark world. Teacher, can I call you mother?”
///M2: LOL WAT? ///DE: LOL, try calling her mother
Teacher Zhuang blushed and said: “Layson, I would never have thought you to so unfortunate, but with my age I can’t become your mother, (///AN: Teacher Zhuang is 11,12 years older than me), but I can become your elder sister, is that ok?”
If she said I could be her sister so be it, calling a female who’s not even married mother is indeed a bit…….. I nodded and said: “Sister, thank you.”
Teacher Zhuang said: “You can only call me Sister when nobody is around, just like now. Brother, do you have any plans for this holiday?”
I nodded and said: “I wish to find somewhere quiet and train there for a period of time.”
Teacher Zhang nodded and said: “That’s good, you really have a determined heart. Right, about 100 miles from here there is place located called White Smoke Mountain. The height above sea level there is very high, it’s also very dangerous, in a normal situation there should be nobody there. You can go there for your training.”
My eyes brightened and I said: “Such a good place, and it’s also near the capital, that’s great! Please tell me how to get there.”
Teacher Zhang took out a piece of paper, then she drew me a simple map and said to me: “If you follow the map, you will find your way there. Be careful on the journey, although your skills aren’t bad, there’s always someone better than you. Please try not to cause any trouble. Right, when you reach the mountain how will you find food?”
I thought about it and said: “There should be wild beast or something like that in the area. I can simply hunt those beasts when I reach the mountain. I could even pick some fruits to eat there.”
Teacher Zhang smiled mysteriously: “Well you don’t have to, your sister already prepared some good stuff for you.”
I quickly said: “No need, no need, sister has already given so much to me, I couldn’t take anymore from you.”
Teacher Zhang took out a small porcelain bottle and said: “It is not valuable anyway, it’s just this bottle.”
I looked at the bottle curiously and asked: “What is it?”
Teacher Zhang said: “This is called an Inedia pill, if you eat one pill you won’t starve for a whole day; it’ll wholly replenish all of your bodily needs. Although it’s not something valuable, it’s useful and reliable. There are 200 pills inside this bottle, if you don’t use all of them, keep the extra. Sister has the recipe for them so if I need more I can just make them myself.”
I’m surprised and happily said: “There is actually something so good. I‘ll help myself then!”
Teacher Zhang watched me put the Inedia pills away and said: “Did you clear up your misunderstanding with Jisue?” She couldn’t help but recall the moment when she kissed my cheek, and her face reddened.
I sighed and said: “I’ll solve it when I come back. Without absolute strength, whatever I say would be disregarded. I already told the circumstances of our fight to her father, she will probably understand.”
Teacher Zhuang smiled and said: “Although your sister does not have much love experience, I feel that you are right, power strengthens your words. My only advice is to be true to yourself. Sister will root for you.” I was surprised. I thought that with sister’s looks, many men would chase after her. Even though I was curious, I refrained from asking in order to not embarrass her.
I nodded. I then grabbed Teacher Zhuang’s hand and said “ Sister, I’m leaving, take care.” I turned away to leave but then realised something: “Right, could you please tell Jisue to feed black dragon for me? Black Dragon will only allow Jisue to feed him.
///M2: Yup, Black Dragon has now been demoted to Hearu status 😛 ///DE: Hearu?
Teacher smiled while nodding and said: “You must come back before the new term starts. Until then i’ll be waiting to see a whole new you. Don’t force yourself too much when you train, or you may risk injury.
“I understand. Sister. Good bye!” I put Black Sable in the leather sheath teacher had prepared for me earlier. Carrying it on my back, I left her office.
I first went back to the dorms to wash my clothes. Fenyun and twins had already left, I think they had already left for their homes. I walked to the school entrance. Looking at the big words- Sky City academy, I felt a little sad. I’ll be leaving, school. Jisue, I’m leaving.
After I had disappeared in the horizon, two shadows with purple hair arrived at the entrance of the school.
“Sister, do you think he has already left?”
“It’s hard to conclude.”
“It’s all my fault, I misunderstood him. He must be mad at me. Oh sister, what should I do? I truly really loved him, I…..”
“Let’s not talk about this right now. Lets go inside and search for him, he may not have left yet.”
The two shadows flashed into the school, and shortly afterwards, they came back.
“Sister, he left…”
“Little sister, don’t be sad, he’ll be back. Didn’t father say that Layson didn’t blame you? He only hoped to clear up the misunderstanding.”
“It’s all my fault, why didn’t I trust him?”
“Enough, It’s just one guy, why do you stretch yourself to such great lengths for him? Sigh… his horse is still here, taking good care of it should be enough. Let’s go home. The holiday isn’t long, only two months.” but it
“Sister, you have not experienced love’s pull, how could you know my pain?”
Their voices slowly disappeared along the path and gradually disappeared into the distance. If I was still here, I would have recognised them, as they were Jiyan and Jisue, the duke’s’ daughters.
After leaving the capital, I followed Teacher Zhuang’s map. I looked for the deserted shortcuts and used a flight spell to speed up my journey. I took short breaks when nobody was around and tested Black Sable’s limits. I discovered that when I channeled black magic into Black Sable, its power increased substantially. With a casual swing, it immediately unleashed a black shock wave that felled three big trees as thick as a grown man. I assumed that as my Demonic Arts improve, Black Sable’s power will also improve.
Traveling by foot couldn’t be compared to travelling with Black Dragon. Even when I used flying magic, I had only travelled 50 miles in the entire day. As the sky started darkening, I stopped to rest in a small town before continuing on my journey tomorrow. I walked the streets, amazed at the number of people out and about. Even if there weren’t as many people as in the capital, it is quite lively. I found a very reasonable hotel and decided to stay there for the night. After a day of monotonous travel, I wanted to find some place to relax, thus I found myself leaving the hotel.
It’s already very late at night, and the amount of people has decreased. I notice a bar in front of me. It would be the perfect place to relax after a busy day.
I walked into the bar looking around, the design is very simple and unsophisticated. Taking another step inside I see two huge trees in the center of the hall. While I guessed that the trees were fake, the plafond was thoroughly covered with dense layer of leaves, and the environment looked very quiet and tastefully laid out.
A servant walked towards me and asked: “Mister, what do you wish to order?”
I ordered: “Give me a big glass of drink, and some light refreshments or something else.”
The servant nodded and left, and I found a seat in a corner. The bar was about a third full, and although there was more people here, the bar remained quiet. If people talked, they lowered their volume, making sure the environment was even more serene.
TL: This is so relaxing… I like this place…
This kind of tranquil environment made me feel very comfortable, and in just a while, the food and drinks I ordered had arrived. I leaned back in my chair comfortably, eating slowly, a refreshing fragrance continually entered my nose.
Right at this time, the silence was broken as three humans entered from the bar’s entrance, the one in the middle was repulsive: both ugly and sly-looking, his face was pale and green. With just one look, I could tell that he’s not anyone good, behind him are two tough looking guys, who are probably the bodyguards of the person in the middle.
The moment they entered, the one in the middle shouted: “Waiter! HURRY UP AND BRING THE GREAT ME ALL THE BEST WINE IN YOUR SHOP ALREADY, today I shall drink all I want here.”
///M2: Sounds like me in a restaurant… Wait NO I don’t do that… shh… you saw nothing…
(joking in case you couldn’t tell) ///DE: I doubt that…
His loud rough voice immediately incited a large portion of animosity. I am even more than annoyed and was unable to bear it, I grumbled: “Be quiet! If you want to drink find yourself another place, don’t yell like a buffoon in here.”
The waiter beside me threw me a glance indicating that I should stop. But how could I back down just like that?
When that ugly sly bastard heard me, he shouted: “WHO’S FARTING HERE? GO AND TAKE CARE OF HIM.” Seeing this scene, it seemed as if I have returned to the predatory world of the beast country. A cold grin appeared on the edge on my lips. Dealing with this sort of scum is my forte.
The two bodyguards walked towards me, one of them extended his hand, as if he wished to grab me with cattail leaf fan-like hand, he warned: “Was it you who ran your mouth? If you displeased our young master, you are already a piece of dead meat.”
I swiftly grabbed his arm tightly and said with a voice like ice: “It’s me, so what, you want to fight? Young master? I didn’t see any young master, all I saw was a loud barking dog.” I then threw him, with one hand, over my head.
The ugly sly guy commanded: “KILL HIM, IT’S ALL ON ME.”
The bar owner ran out and begged: “Oh White young master, please, don’t cause trouble in my humble shop, can today’s debt be settled by me?”
That White young master triangular eyes straightened and he shouted: “F**K OFF, THE GREAT ME HAS BEEN ANGERED, If I said I will kill there’s NO WAY he can walk out of here ALIVE. Whoever gets in my way WILL BE KILLED.” Saying that, he slapped the owner and the owner rolled and bounced away like a… pig…
/// DE: you slapped him!!!???? Of all actions, Pfffff
///M2: I may or may not have enhanced the imagery there…
Looking at his arrogant face, my head heated up.
I slammed the table, stood up and yelled: “If you have any problems, come at me, don’t bother random people.”
White young master said: ”Fine, you want to be a hero? Today i’ll fulfill your puny wish, GET HIM!” Listening to his orders, his two big bodyguards roared with fury and charged at me at the same time. Looking at their movements, I noticed they have indeed trained in some martial arts, but against me, it was as good as nothing. This insignificant White young master, he is definitely a parasite, a detriment to society. Today, I will remove this piece of trash from the society. Thick killing intent poured out from my eyes.
I didn’t even dodge the bodyguards’ attacks, I let them kicked and punched all over my body, but every time they hit me, the sound of their bones breaking filled the air. Getting tired of their weak attacks, I punched both of them once. The bodyguards flew back into the tables, with blood gushing from their noses. If I were to prolong the fight, I would have wasted more effort. In these punch for punch fights, my super strong defense gave me an ultimate advantage. Just now, I didn’t even need to dodge their attacks, and I’ve terrified my opponents. My victory was assured in the blink of an eye, and my two punches hit their chest at the same time.
The White young master was astonished by the sight of his two bodyguards bloody on the floor. When he noticed that I’m walking towards him step by step, he realized the danger he was in, and with an unpleasant scream, he turned around and ran out of the bar.
Perhaps he had committed too many bad deeds, but his legs cramped while he ran and he fell on the ground squealing in terror. I walked forward and stepped on him, asking: “Weren’t you very wild? Didn’t you want to kill me? Huh, well, come on, I’m waiting.”
White young master said with eyes full of hatred: “If you dare touch me, my father will not spare your life, he will rip you into million shreds, you won’t die a good death!”
At first I didn’t want to dirty my hands dealing with this wrench, even now I am still quite reluctant. But listening to his words, my temper flared up once again. I said flatly: “I’m curious as to how your father will do that. ” My whole body let out a strong killing intent.
White young master finally realized that I was a threat to his life, his eyes looked terrified. Just when he was about to beg for forgiveness, my foot stepped on his body. Increasing the pressure on his chest, his sternum was crushed to pieces, and he instantly died, his blood gushed from the seven orifices of his head.
I hadn’t realized that killing in dragon empire for the first time, almost brought deadly disaster to myself. .
I said with hatred: “His death was too painless.”
The bar owner suddenly kneeled on the floor, and cried out: “Disaster! Disaster! The young White master died!”
Listening to his cries, I scolded: “Are you his ancestor? Why do you grieve over him so much?”
The bar owner said: “This traveller is from far away, you didn’t know, but White young master is this land’s count – White Skye’s only son. From a young age, he has been pampered and spoiled, we people here have already gotten used to his behavior long ago. Since sir killed young master, the White count won’t let us slip so easily.”
Annoyed, I took out a bag of money and threw it to him, I said: “Since you’re so afraid of getting into trouble, take this money, and get out of my sight.”
The bar owner delightfully took the money, turning around and running. I saw the customers hurriedly scattering and fleeing in all directions, but I just wanted go back to my seat and continue eating peacefully. However, before I could eat, a customer pulled my clothes, gesturing towards the exit and advised: “Brother, you should leave quickly, it’s impossible to fight the white landlord. Today you’ve eliminated the scumbag, we are all very grateful so we can’t let you lose your life here.”
I questioned: “Is the White count that formidable?”
The customer nodded and continued: ”The White count is a retired dragon knight, to whom was given this land as a reward. Although the empire took his dragon back, in this place, he’s just like the emperor, no one dares offend him.”
I was dumbfounded and said: “ Retired dragon knight?” Who would have thought that a dragon knight has such privilege in the dragon empire, even though he’s retired he can still become a count.
The customer said: “Yes, hurry up and leave, rumors say that his strength is close to that of a Light Knight. Even without his dragon, I’m afraid you’re no match for him, on top of that, he has 3000 warriors under his command. Quick, before the news spreads, it is not too late to leave right now!”
True, even without his dragon, I still can’t possibly rival a dragon knight, this point, I’m still very clear about. Sitting around and waiting to get killed is not my habit. I nodded and said to the customer: “Thank you for telling me about it, you should quickly leave too.”
I speedingly returned to the hotel to pack my things, then I left the city in the middle of the night.
Due to the White young master’s wickedness, therefore, no one told the landlord his death news. Only until the second day, the news spread to his ears.
White Skye took his armies to the hotel. When he saw his only son’s tragic death, he couldn’t suppress the tears that flowed on his face. However he never realized that his pampering of his son was what caused his death. His mind was filled with intense hatred, he loudly roared: “No matter whether it’s till the ends of worlds, I will find you, AND I SHALL USE YOUR BLOOD TO PAY TRIBUTE TO MY SON’S SOUL.”
///M2: He sounds like a necromancer…T.T
///DE: I think he meant: “I shall kill him and decorate his corpse at my son’s tomb”
///M2: Now he seems like an egyptian pharoah… Not sure if that is any better tho…
At that moment, on the road I shuddered. I couldn’t help but smile bitterly: “It seems that someone is cursing me.” I regretted not listening to my sister’s advice, since I couldn’t restrain myself, I had to run away like a dog with it’s tail between its legs. I shook my head, continuing on my journey at a noticeably faster pace.
After walking the entire night, I have reached the white smoke mountain early in the morning. As sister (///AN: Teacher Zhuang) said, it’s indeed surrounded by wreath of white smoke, and the humidity of this area is very high. I followed a meandering mountain path up the mountain. On the way, I would sometimes run into small beasts. For my own safety, I held Black Sable, ready in my hands, it’s black aura radiating an ice-cold feeling that refreshed my mental state.
Because it’s early morning, it was misty inside the mountain. Even when I had climbed halfway up the mountain, I could barely see 3 metres in front me. After each step I took, a hu~ hu~ sound was made, as the humid mist blew past me. It felt like I was going through a blanket of clouds. After walking another 300 meters up the mountain, I finally left the clouds, and was confronted with a beautiful sight. The sun has just risen on the horizon, and the sunlight reflected on the clouds that covered the mountain. The clouds looked like gigantic cotton candy, layers upon layers of pinkish red mist. It was so beautiful that I simply couldn’t take it all in.
I looked up and saw the peak of the mountain piercing through the sky. It seems that I have not even reached a third of the way up the mountain. I did not need to reach the top, just a quiet place that allows me to train and relax. The scenery here is quite nice, and there seems to be no one around, so I settled there.
I found a considerably flat land on top of a hill. (///M2: think like a plateau) I’ve decided to use the mad god’s chi to punch a gigantic hole through the mountain wall, forming a cave, roughly 6 metres deep and about 2 metres high. For safety purposes, I made the entrance smaller, an uneven entrance with a height of only one metre and 1 metre width. After that I cut down 2 trees far away, using Black Sable to cut them apart into wooden piles, plank bedding the platform of the cave, a simple temporary base/camp is completed.
I spent my entire day making this cave, but I am quite satisfied with the result. I dug the floor so that it was slanted towards the entrance so that the rain wouldn’t come in. I lay down on the wooden planks and ate an Inedia pill. I don’t have a lot of time, I am only here for two months, I should start training as soon as possible to increase my strength as much as possible.
I immediately stood up, left the cave, and found vines which could block the cave’s entrance. I then cast a barrier on the entrance using my Demonic Arts. This should be enough to deter any beast from unwittingly entering the cave. Since everything is prepared, I started to train in isolation.
Twenty days have passed since I started my closed door training. Ever since I went berserk, I have noticed a lot of changes in my body. My training speed of my Mad God chi is like that of a god. I have nearly reached the third tier,and although I have not broken through yet, I can sense that I will break through soon. But my Demonic Arts have not improved at all. In the last twenty days, it has stayed static. I have been stuck at the peak of the third tier; unable to make the breakthrough that would allow me to change my form into that of a two winged fallen angel. I tried to breakthrough the bottleneck forcefully and almost got processed by my magic. I didn’t dare attempt to forcefully breakthrough again. In the blink of an eye, more than a month has passed, but my progress had not improved and I grew more and more irritated.
Early one morning, I stood at the edge of the plateau, looking down at the sea of clouds which covered the mountain. I thought about how I could breakthrough the bottleneck, but couldn’t come up with an answer. I decided to take a break from training, as both my Demonic Arts and Mad God chi had reached a bottleneck. Breaking through bottlenecks is not an easy task at all.
I start to think about Jisue, I wonder if the duke clearly explain the misunderstanding… I’m so lonely, I wonder what I will do in the future… Should I stay in the dragon empire as a human? or go back to the Bi Meng tribe as a beastman? Sigh… my heart is a mess, i can’t even decide my own future. The duke once said that I should build a goal for myself, a dream I wish to accomplish… What is my dream? Although I’m young, I am tired of the constant killing and fighting that occurs all the time. I wish that the three races would live in peace. I would be able to find a place to grow old with Jisue. But is it possible for me to make Humans, Beasts, and Demons to coexist in peace? What difference could my strength make? Any random dragon knight could kill me with a flick of his finger.
I still must return to the Beast Country, no matter what happens, it is still my homeland. Compared to the dragon empire, the beast country is far worse off, and if it continues to develop this way, the entire country may be destroyed. Even though I have never met a demon, I am still one third demon; my grandmother was a part of the Demonic Royal Family. I have ties to all three races, and helping only one of them would not be the best idea.
So what is my aim? At the very least I wish to change the beast country’s current situation; eliminate the bad habits. The best way to face those with low intelligence is to crush them with brute force; as I thought about crushing the beastmen, my eyes flash with a cold light.
If I help the beast country grow as strong as the dragon empire, the three sides would be balanced, and the war may end. But I don’t want to be any generic ‘hero’, I would like to be an undefeatable incomprehensibly powerful being that does as he wishes. I have decided, I will only return to the beast country when i have achieved success. Even though I hate it, I must help the beast country grow strong. After the beast clan matures, I might go to the demon clan. I can’t let any one country grow stronger than the other two combined. Only when all three countries are equally formidable, and peace reigns will my mission be complete.
That’s right, my aim is to become the strongest being and use my power to change the relationship between the races, allowing all races to coexist peacefully together. I feel that this dream is big enough to last me for a lifetime. I may not be able to finish this dream in my lifetime. But to achieve this goal, my strength is insufficient. Thinking of ways to solve this problem, my eyes suddenly brightened. If one man’s strength is not enough, why not find companions who have the same goal and work with them? If we succeed we could bring peace and harmony to all of the races of this world. (Due to the decision I made today, ‘Our group’ will become the fourth great power that will influence the decisions of the three races, and so started my great climb onto the stage of history)
Thinking this through, I felt that everything has become clear and sanguine. It felt great, and just then, the sun broke through the clouds, slowly rising up into the sky. Raising my head, I howled at the sky, my whole body’s power was agitated and flowed through my body with the howl. My Mad God chi and Demonic Arts separated into inner and outer energy and cycled through my body at an incredible speed. Two flows of air, one black and one yellow, surrounded my body and churned crazily. The surrounding clouds were forced away by the incredibly strong flow of air and I felt my whole body’s blood boil.
///M2: Is there such thing as a werewolf that changes during the day? If so, I’m pretty sure Layson is one…
I know that this was the right time, and I stopped my howl and sat on my knees and without moving from the spot, allowed the two energies to cycle on their own. My body’s meridians swelled with immeasurable power and my entire body felt like a gigantic balloon. My Demonic Arts, originating from behind the eyebrows and circulated through my brain. My Mad God chi, started from the dantian and cycled through my body madly.
During the 99th cycle, the two powers meet at the point behind my eyebrows, and my body felt like it had exploded. All of my meridians changed, and the originally full meridian channels seemed to be empty and wide. I knew that my meridian channels were once again empty and widen, and I felt an indescribable light and comforting feeling. The yellow and black energies continued to cycle. I am madly delighted, not only did my Demonic Arts break through the third tier, my Mad God chi had also done the same!
I slowly replaced the two energies in their original places. While my Demonic Arts and Mad God chi did not stop cycling, the speed was lowered. In other words, even if I don’t focus on training them in the future, they will continue to grow.
I opened my eyes and realized that night had fallen, if someone was around, they would have seen the two flashes of lightning that flashed in the dark night. If they looked closely, they would see that those flashes of lightning came from my eyes.
I opened up my book of Demonic Arts and chanted: “Darkness condense in thy Soul, To have Fallen is to be Freed, Awaken: Myriad of magical powers that hast slept in myst Blood.” The black magic that had just calmed, was agitated again, spiking along with my incantation. I felt an icy cold spike in my brain, and I couldn’t hold it in and painfully moaned. My green hair turned black, and my skin became crystal white. My body’s muscles bulged and I felt a huge spike of pain from my back. My whole body felt like it was being torn apart, and a pair of wings approximately two meters long spread out from behind my back. Black magic spread out over my entire body and it is distinctly surrounded by a distinct black aura. But the most interesting thing is that the mad god battle chi is also completely merged with the black magic; I feel that my black magic has mad god chi mixed into it. This is the first time I have felt so powerful. Suddenly, the Black Sable that was behind me let out a cheerful sound and with a ‘shou’ it flew through the sky, I thought about chasing after it and I found myself beside Black Sable, I couldn’t even get used to my own speed!
I grabbed Black Sable and instilled it with black magic. Black Sable let out a strong black light. Again, just thinking about moving caused my body to once again return to the ground. A glimmer of coldness was showing on my face, I felt no emotions, and my brain was incomparably clear. This form probably gave me the best battle capabilities.
I let out another howl, and transferred my black magic into Black Sable. With a jump, my wings opened wide and I flew 10 meters into the sky. Wielding Black Sable with both hands, I instilled my strength into the sword and slashed at the ground. The slash created a black chain that gently flew towards the ground, and with a ‘hong’ noise, the trees were scattered, splattering in every direction. The body of the mountain now had a pit that was 1.5 meters deep and 16 meters long.
I burst into laughter and cackled at the sky madly. I had finally succeeded, all these years of effort haven’t been wasted. I was able to attain the power of a fallen angel. I no longer have to fear Liwa. I tested the Strike of the Mad God with my sword. Even though my Mad God chi had been blended with my black magic, the attacks’ power was not negatively affected in the slightest, in fact it could be comparable to its’ power during my berserk transformation. Since I broke through the third tier of my Mad God Chi, I was able to use the Mad God’s Third Fist: Violent Dance of a Mad Dragon.
///M2: Mah(d) God thats a mouthful 😛
Since I was able to achieve my goal, I prepared to leave, finding a large rock and blocking the cave entrance. I started going down the mountain.
Originally I wanted to climb up the mountain further and take a look, then I gave up the idea because I missed Jisue too much. I did not know that I had missed another opportunity to advance my power, but that story is for another time.
///DE: lol author, you tricked me!!
After going down the mountain, I followed the previous route back. I was carried away by the joy of my increased power, and completely forgot about the incident I caused in the small town. I remembered as I walked into the town, I reasoned that if I passed through quickly there wouldn’t be any trouble. And even if we met, I may even be as powerful as him. After attaining the fallen angel transformation, I couldn’t help but feel a little arrogant.
///M2: I would say death-flag, but he is a MC…
I successfully passed through the town. Just as I thought that it seemed that the White Sky duke had left to find me in other places, a heavenly shaking noise made from a storm of footsteps and shouts of ‘Kill” was made. Damn, I realized that I was surrounded.
A large amount of the dragon empire’s soldiers poured at me from all sides, the man in front of me- wearing a white armor holding a spear, charged at me. He had an imposing manner which swelled with inordinate arrogance and gave me a terrifying amount of pressure. I know, this fight is unavoidable, and the opponent in front of me, is probably the town’s landlord- White Skye.
White Skye’s horse halted at 10 metres in front of me, and I saw his face clearly. This man truly proved himself worthy of being the former dragon knight; his height didn’t lose to mine,although all his hair has become white, his back was straight and bolt upright, his entire demeanor looked like a staff of loaded dart.
///DE: why is even he worrying about his height right now? 0.o lol
