Five days later in a certain town.
Walking through the bustling crowd, Hong Ming and Han Yue wandered their gazes around their surroundings. With many pedestrians and merchants alike passing by in a hurried pace or peaceful stride, different kinds of people could be seen in this busiest road of the city.
Within a human city, there was no way Hong Ming would unveil his true form and walk aro
"Elder brother…"After leaving the tea house a moment ago, Han Yue looked at Hong Ming's restless figure. His complexion became slightly dark, while a glint of murderous intent flashed through his gaze.Prior to this, in the next moment Hong Ming introduced himself as a friend of the empress, of course the group of the people started to look at him weirdly, while a couple of them even chuckled at him. How could they not? There were uncountable numbers of people who attempted to scam others by saying they knew some high figures in the empire, but it turns out all of those were lies.Everybody wanted to claim themselves about s
A month later, under the vast, blue sky, within the lush green fields of the palace, amongst the gardens painted with an array of colors from flowers and trees, there seemed to be a group of people surrounding one person.He had a tall figure, lean, but muscular. His hair flowed down to his waist with a golden color that reflected the light of the sun, and his eyes were of a fiery auburn orange. His attitude was obviously haughty, as seen from his confident smile, clean and awe inspiring. The attire he wore however wasn't exactly fit of a noble with his stature, he looked more akin to a lowly baron in the countryside rather than what his rank truly was.A mantle of dark blue, which reached to his ankles, a white buttoned shirt
"Your majesty!"Running towards Ang Luo with panic painted on his face, a man who wore an official robe shouted out loud. With a letter in his hand which waved in the air, the man spoke, "There's urgent news!"Seeing the behavior of the official, Ang Luo revealed a solemn and serious expression. As he didn't want to waste anymore time, he walked to the official and asked, "What is it?""T-This us the news from the East General! T-The East General had declared mutiny!"Those words immediately bring a gasp of shock to anyo
"Tsk."Tapping the sole of his feet to the hard ground beneath him, a young man in blue clothes, with dark strips all over the hem of his garments could be seen inside a luxurious room. His impatience was apparent on his visage, while another man around the same age with him was crossing his arms silently.The room itself was complete with many kinds of furniture to accommodate the guests of the palace. The soft, fluffy pillow was placed right atop of the chair as the cushion for the guests, while the fragrant smells of the tea served by the servants give a relaxing feeling to anyone who sniffed at it.Both of them we
"Hong Ming!?"Her sudden shout had startled the maids around her as they quickly observed the young woman beside them. As for the young woman who was the center of the attention, she didn't even notice the curious and surprised gazes of the people around her while she furrowed her eyebrows, "Are you sure with what you have said?"The young woman wore a special tailored robe that was designed to resemble phoenix. Crimson feathers which would reflect the lights on them were stitched to the edge of her robe and her sleeves. Fiery colors of flames were drawn and painted onto the back and front part of the robe, giving the onlookers an impression of a divine and majestic feeling.
"Master…?"A little speechless at the words of the young man before her, Liu Meng frowned deeply and asked, "Are you…. really Hong Ming?"
Waiting outside patiently, Ang Luo and try royal guards gazed upon Han Yue figure who was standing ten meters away from them. From one glance, anyone with discerning eyes could see that there were no traces of nervousness on Han Yue, even though he was in close proximity to an absolute ruler."Are you a nonhuman as well?"Taking the initiative to talk, Ang
A couple days later, within the vast grassland, rows upon rows of warriors could be seen in one glance."Is it alright?"Accompanying Hong Ming on his left side, Han Yue asked softly while his gaze observed the marching soldiers in front of them. Apparently, after the meeting of the empress and Hong Ming said he would help the emperor, Hong Ming was tasked to set forth with a large quantity of soldiers to make a visit to one of the strongest generals within the empire.This expedition has been commanded by a general who has an equal rank against the four protectors of the empire. With full plated golden armor donned o
