Having been blown away from the impact, Luke rolled on the ground three times before he tried to get up. Not wanting to let the chance simply pass by, Zhao Peng followed with a swipe of his war axe after he had kicked the left side of Luke's waist. "You want to attack my waist? Sure, but I'll attack yours first!" laughed Zhao Peng while he used his entire might on the swipe, making it hummed slightly in the air. Realizing he didn't have enough time to chant a spell, Luke jumped high enough to dodge the incoming blow as he stretched out his arm to Zhao Peng with a grim expression, "You forced me to do this." As a bluish glow radiated through Luke's opened palm, Zhao Peng felt an ominous feeling and pulled out a dagger that was strapped right on the back of his waist, while cursing, he yelled. "Eat sh*t!" Zhao Peng guided his inner energy, Lingqi, on his hand as he threw the dagger right at Luke's head. As if being propelled by a machine instead of human power, the dagger flew with u
"Where are they…" Muttering quietly to himself, Luke ran towards another street while his gaze wandered to his left and right side. The street he was on now would be a stark contrast with the street where he had fought Zhao Peng and his cronies. People were walking on the street, there were some carriages, and other things that made the street look lively. As he ran, he thought of some possibilities that had transpired for old Xu and Xu Qingli to disappear in a short time. 'Perhaps they have some kind of foot steps technique, just like that guy I had fought this afternoon and then ran away?' That was a possible conjecture, although it would seem weird if they had those in the first place, how they got caught up by Zhao Peng. 'Maybe Zhao Peng had it too so that's why they couldn't… but again, Zhao Peng wasn't really as fast as that guy with the sword. Although he could be considered fast, my eyes and the ECS were still able to follow him just fine.' Pondering over it for some more
A lone figure was traversing a forest as the moon was at its peak. Some crickets and growls of animals could be heard faintly, but the figure didn't stop even for a moment. As if deciding to punish the insolent traveler disturbing the night life, a huge snake jumped from a branch and flashed its fangs, hissing.With its fangs at the ready, in another moment, the traveler would have had his neck pierce
*Awoo!* Howling as it dashed at Luke, the silver wolf showed its sharp fangs in its mouth as killing intent poured out of its gaze. Pointing his last ice spike towards the silver wolf, Luke shot it right towards the silver wolf with unstoppable speed. Suddenly, silver light shone from the wolf's steel horn while it swung its head at the ice spike. Soon, the light separated itself from the steel blade and flew right at the ice spike and destroyed it at the same time. *Boom!* A shock wave with a radius of only ten meters had appeared from the collision. Widening his eyes from the unexpected skill of the silver wolf, Luke grumbled, "So it has a blade attached to its forehead and can shoot a laser blade or something. Wonderful." Clenching his teeth, Luke turned his ECS onto combat mode and created a sword made of ice from his already dwindling magic power. Casting a wind blessing spell on himself to lessen the impact and accelerate his movement, Luke dashed towards the wolf and tried
"Huff… huff.."Breathing heavily, Luke dragged his body out of the river and lay on the ground with his face facing the stars.'From all the ways to die, I almost died by getting drowned…' Thought Luke as he sighed, trying to recall how it had happened.<
After looking for a cave in a while, Luke finally found one right in the middle of the forest. In a small slope on the road of the forest, laid the entrance to what seemed to be a large cave. The cave was surrounded by vines all around its mouth, with both sides of its mouth made of stone walls to pillar the cave. Taking some dry branches that were near the cave, Luke made a bonfire in the cave while he warmed himself and dried his clothes. Chanting a quick barrier spell as well as an alarm spell from his dwindling magic power in case of an unwanted intruder, Luke went back again to absorb the energy in their air while he sits in lotus position. On five hundred meters away, Xiang Heng slowly stepped out from the shadow of a tree, while he smiled as he stared at Luke's direction, "Found you." Turning his head around, he noticed that he didn't feel any aura of Ma Min. Just to be sure, he activated a detecting technique but there was no result as well. Smiling, Xiang Heng held his lon
*Whoosh* Right after the words left his mouth, Xiang Heng swiftly dove down with his blades gripped in reverse grip and pointed at Luke.Seeing where he would attack, this time Luke dodged the incoming strike by taking a step back as his acceleration spell was still in effect. But right after Luke's steps stopped, Xiang Heng already pursued him.Flying very low, Xiang Heng's wings quickly went towards Luke. Seeing Xiang Heng approaching him right in front of him, Luke took a stance while he pulled his arm to punch at Xiang Heng with all his might. However, before Luke could throw his punch, Xiang heng suddenly moved so fast that he left after images, he went at Luke's back to slash right at Luke's neck. His instinct screaming in danger, Luke raised his arm instead for a punch and shielded the left side of his neck. *Clang* Steel clashed with steel noise had sounded while Xiang Heng widened his eyes a little bit. Smirking, Xiang Heng shaked his blade to make the noise screech as he
"Who is that…" Asked Luke back while she stared at the woman with a tired gaze. But soon, he clicked his tongue and muttered, "Oh right.. No one could spell my f*cking name.""Hmm? That isn't your name?" Asked the woman back with a smile as she continued, "Please do tell. What's your name?""
