Stepping backwards quickly, Luke pointed both of his handguns towards the haystack hut, readying himself to chant a spell should the need arise, "How?"
~"I'm not your enemy."~ Answered the voice in a vague tone, ~"And you already know, I'm the person who wanted to empower you."~
"Yun Long... "The man who had his name whispered, suddenly turned towards the caller as he said, "In the flesh, Hong Ming.""Why are you here?" Asked Hong Ming warily. The more time passed, the more it seemed for the Five Calamities to gather in this place.
"Unreasonable like always." Commented Yun Long, trails of azure flames started to emerge on the corner of both his eyes. Gleaming eerily, with an impression as if a volcano would erupt any moment."You know I'm the King of the Dragons, right?""So what?" Answered Leng Zhian, not bothering to hide his dissatisfied expression, "This man is a human who had ch
"I know." Answering the voice, Luke then commented, "But aren't you feeling something, Striver? Your sect is being assaulted right before you. The disciples are being killed mercilessly in stray attacks, as if they are no more than bugs." ~"It is unfortunate. However, I had my reason for establishing that sect. Now, it is just a husk of what it was supposed to be."~ Quipped the voice. "Is that so…" Said Luke, staring at the mountains solemnly for another few minutes. Sighing again, Luke turned his body and walked away. "Fine... Let's get away from here. I hope you don't lie to me." Snorting out loud inside Luke's head, the voice replied, ~"I won't. It's the truth."~ "We will see." Said Luke for the last time, as he dashed in the south direction, staying as far away as he could from his former sect. 'Goodbye, Three-Headed Serpent sect.'On the other hand, Hong Ming was dealing with the combination of Lun Hua and Yun Long. After Yun Long squashed the black dragon, who once was an
"I was invited here." Quipped the man called Fan Lu nonchalantly. He was wearing a robe similar to that of Heaven's Sword Mountain. Yet, his robe was tailored exquisitely, threaded with golden and silver threads. His hair was tied in a ponytail, coloured in silver, similar to his eyes. His eyebrows were straight and narrow, giving an impression of a very cold and serious person. Clasping his hands on his back, his standing posture was straight, while the aura around him was so sharp, even the wind would be sliced in two should they be blowing in his course. "So one of the Four Righteous is in cahoots with two of the Five Calamities? What happened to the Four Guardians who said they would protect humanity from any race with bad intentions?" Mocked Hong Ming while he kept charging through the blade, destroying the blade and was in the middle part of the sword. "Time for a change. You understand what it means for me to be here." Answered Fan Lu. His eyes coldly staring at Hong Ming. "
~"So what's your plan?"~ Listening to the voice inside his head, Luke contemplated for a while as he ran through the forest. The wind swirled around him, increasing Luke's speed, decreasing the air pressure that was exerted at Luke. "I'm going back." Quipped Luke, the image of two people had flashed in his mind. He had left the town without even a goodbye. Perhaps, he should check up on old Xu and Qing Li. ~"To where?"~ Questioned the voice, wondering about the destination that Luke had in mind. "Well, when I had arrived in this world for the very first time, I met with an old man and his granddaughter. I have known them for a few days. Perhaps, I should go back to them because I didn't say anything before leaving back then." ~"For a few days? And now you want to go back to them?"~ Repeated the voice, albeit not believing what he had heard. "Yeah, why?" Asked Luke back, not understanding the meaning behind those words. ~"You make it sound like they are close family or something.
[BACK TO THE PRESENT] ~"So you are saying that it would be a long journey, right?"~ Sitting under the shade of a tree, Luke polished his handguns nonchalantly, enjoying the nice breeze in the air, blowing gently in his face. After he had cleaned the muzzle and all parts that needed to be cleaned, Luke now tried to take out another item. The item had the shape of a small UFO. Activating the item, Luke watched it float higher and higher, reaching the canopy of the forest and hide amongst the leaves. "Not that far away. If we have to calculate it, then…" Sweeping his hand in front of him, a holographic panel appeared out of nowhere, displaying a map of his current position, "Maybe if I continuously run without stopping, we can reach in two days." ~"I know you can go faster than this. You are an expert as well as a reinforced soldier! Your pace now is no more than the speed of a turtle for you!"~ Complained the voice, apparently not satisfied with how Luke did things so far. "Are you
~"Great, keep doing that."~An hour later, Luke finally had achieved some breakthrough in the Astral Projection spell. The glowing lights around him, caused by the constant supply of the magic power onto the magic circuits had shown a beautiful view if one had enough time to appreciate the scene.However, Luke was definitely not one who had enough time for it. Even now, sweat could be seen
