Three days later, in the capital of the Yunan empire.
A violet rug ran from the throne down through the center and split into two paths leading out while guidon banners with burnished embroideries dropped from the walls. Between each banner hangs a lantern, all but a few have been lit and in turn illuminate the depictions of powerful generals that lead the army into countless wars below them.
"Did you hear about it?""What is it? About the public execution again?"
"Your highness!"Kowtowing on the ground the moment he stepped onto the empress' chamber, an eunuch, the type of male servants that serve in the Harem Court, addressed the empress with a loud enough voice, yet wasn't rude or overbearing.He wore a striking red robe which handed to him when he became an eunuch for the first time in the royal palace. He was quite young if one had to compare h
"Your highness, the empress, has come!"As the eunuch who asked her about Hong Ming's request announced her arrival after she stepped into the guest room, the royal guards who stood near the door, as well as Hong Ming kowtowed to the ground to greet her.""Long live her highness the empress! May the heaven bestow upon her a boundless longevity and always be healthy!""&n
A month later, amidst the vast desert, there were multiple shades which belonged to a party consisting of twenty people who armed to the teeth, and another two people who led these twenty hardened warriors under the scorching sunlight.Unlike the wariness and caution that the twenty warriors had towards their surroundings, one of the two people seemed to be calm and nonchalant. On the other hand, the last person appeared to be less cautious as the twenty warriors and expression of curiosity was displayed on his visage.
With a booming sound, Hong Ming quickly charged upon the giant worm with a fist wrapped in lightning. In an instant, the scenery within his eyes changed and he appeared right in front of the giant worm.Immediately he sent his fist and punched right at the giant worm's stomach area. Yet, as he pulled his punch, a surge of powerful Lingqi could be felt underneath the sand he stood on. In a split second, he leaped backwards and avoided a sudden eruption from where he once stood.
A faint smile formed onto Ang Luo's face when he saw Hong Ming come back to his side with calm demeanour on him. A golden cup filled with black substances could be seen in Hong Ming's hand, as he walked steadily to Ang Luo.Receiving the golden cup from Hong Ming's hand, Ang Luo nodded in acknowledgement and went to the particular dune they sighted before. Though the stench of the monster's blood stank beyond words, Ang Luo still maintained his nonchalant attitude. As if he had gotten used to this kind of thing despite his high status.When he arrived at the top of the sand dune, he poured down the pitch black liquid while he muttered one of the ancient chants known to the history of men. Although his voice wasn't loud in the first place, yet somehow, as if an invisible power had manifested in the atmosphere and carried every s
Though it was subtle at first, as time passed, Hong Ming realized the nature of the passage to which he walked upon. In front of him was the never ending horizon. Although he had spent an hour walking in this passage, he couldn't see the goal of it. Not to mention, the long exposure of the bright illumination gave out a sense of bewilderment as one would think they would be trapped in this place forever.The ceilings above him were no different than the white floors below his feet. Even though on his right side, there were endless windows that brightened the passage and the source of light, one touch on it and Hong Ming knew they weren't made of ordinary glasses. No matter how much strength Hong Ming put on his hand, he saw no signs of the glass breaking or such. 'It's here.'At last, Hong Ming stood at the part of the passage where it has the most faintest flow of Lingqi. It was unnoticeable at one's glance as the change was subtle at best. Yet, Hong Ming finally found it after scrutinizing the place carefully.Now, what he needed to do was to open the hidden path in the passage or trigger a veiled switch around it. Even though he wasn't the best in dealing with formations, he has more than enough experience to probe the area.Letting out multiple thin strands of Lingqi out of his pores, Hong Ming began to utilize the technique he once learned when he was still traveling around while Han Y
