"Hey." Glancing at the man in her right, Lin Ju spoke with an uncertain tone, "Do you think that guy already died?" "Who cares? Just keep running." Replied Wu Liang while he dashed to the direction of the entrance of the ancient ruin along with the rest of sect disciples. On his back was Zhu Ma who had his arm bent in an unnatural way as his breathing was in mess and he was sweating bullets. Right after Hong Ming had left the place while he brought Luke to the corner part of the ruin, the rest of the sect disciples quickly scurried away and met with Zhu Ma on their way to the exit. When they had asked Zhu Ma where the elder, Zhu Hui, Zhu Ma could only shake his head slightly and made them realize that he was the only survivor of the entire event. Informing the rest of them that it was actually a ploy of Heaven's Sword Mountain that had tried to ambush them and they were already dealt with together with their elder, the sect disciples immediately made a decision to leave the ancient
"That's right, Katsue. Mind if I ask for some help?" Asked Luke as he eyed Hong Ming's figure carefully. "Just call me Hong Ming. I'm used to being called that way." Waving his hand in the air to dispense the formalities, Hong Ming spoke while he was intrigued with what kind of request Luke wanted, "So, what help do you need from me? I will hear it out."Feeling a little bit nervous to ask this to the person he had just met, Luke would try his luck and see how it went. With that in mind, Luke explained to Hong Ming about his current predicament that he had to take his equipment back from one of the inner disciples in the Three Headed Serpent sect. "Hmm, I see.." Muttering under his breath, Hong Ming placed his finger on his chin in contemplation gesture as Luke gazed at Hong Ming silently. Luke knew perhaps it would be too much to ask something like this but he wanted to see if there were any chance for the being to lend him a hand. "Consider it done." Replied Hong Ming a moment la
"I'm back." Tossing Lin Ju on the ground like some sack of garbage, Hong Ming spoke while pointing his finger towards the girl. "There, I caught the girl that you want." Looking speechless at the sudden scene before him, Luke asked as he was unsure on what to do, "Umm.. Hong Ming, what's this?" "Are you joking with me, boy? Isn't this girl what you want?" Laughed Hong Ming jovially. Then, he gently hit his palm with another hand and said, "That's right. I was asking about your name. What's your name in here?" "Well.." Giving a side glance at Lin Ju who was observing him with a wary expression, Luke sighed and answered, "It's Lu Kun." "Lu Kun.. Hmm, not bad." Murmured Hong Ming. After that, he nodded slightly and continued, "I will remember that name." Turning his face to the girl, Hong Ming questioned, "Well, then? Spill it out now. Where do you hide this boy’s, Lu Kun's item that you had stolen before." Biting her lower lips in frustration, Lin Ju replied with resignation, "It
In the next moment, something moved past the crowd with speed that could create a cloud of dust in its wake and a sonic boom that would deafened any cultivators within or below Lingqi Cleansing realm. After only five seconds, Luke and Lin Ju found themselves flying above the sea while astonished that there was no pressure at all from the winds.There was a transparent golden barrier around them, withstanding all the air pressure from Hong Ming's unnatural pace.
An hour later where Hong Ming was still flying in the sky, along with Luke and Lin Ju on his side, something unexpected had occurred in his vision. Above him, myriads of colors painted the night sky. River of purple mist was flowing towards somewhere, as it split itself onto multiple streams that flow endlessly.Emerald fireflies gathered under the purple mist
'A bunny?'As he saw the transformation that had happened in front of him, Luke wondered silently to himself as he scrutinized the changes of Hong Ming's body. He could see that after Hong Ming's form was that of a bunny, their flying pace had increased slightly and the pressure that he had emitted this entire time became more unbearable.
"There's many unknown variables lately."Laying on the bench that had soft pillows on it with idyllic decorations, a woman with gorgeous features and unparalleled beauty pouted slightly. Sitting in a ceremonious throne of ruby was a giant man that had his height twice of any person in this heavenly room. His throne was covered in flames with the armrests decorated with the skulls of his strongest foes.
"Stay here." Dropping off Luke and Lin Ju in the middle of nowhere, outside a massive city, Hong Ming ordered both of them to stay put for a while until he came back. Seeing that Hong Ming had an urgent matter to take care of, Luke and Lin Ju had decided to agree to wait while he inspected something amidst the massive city.The city itself stretched upon the horizon with tall walls to safeguard against any invasion of the neighbouring threats, with soldiers patrolling every minute atop of the walls. The city walls seemed to be built from a very durable material, jet black in colour, thick and strong in a glance for any visitor or passerby that took a look at it. The walls circled around the city, while the city had many sections and overlapping walls within to differentiate the area where no ordinary citizens could enter without an official permit. The city called Huan was the capital of the Kingdom which had governed the region for a few centuries and could be considered young compa
