"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
"Do you take me for a fool!!!??"The throne hall vibrated, the flow of Lingqi in the surrounding became chaotic, and every fire illuminating the room shook and set ablaze as if someone had poured a glass of gasoline upon them. Not beating around the bush, Hong Ming continued. "Everyone knows my name! They know my name! For you to have the courage to mess around like I don’t even exist, which powerhouse had promised you safety and strength beyond your current limits!? Be honest now and I will consider lessening your punishment!!"Bowing lower to the point that his forehead touched the floor, the king said in trepidation and fear, "This one won't dare!" "Enough! Talk!" Interjected Hong Ming with his voice rumbling across the room. Even the air around him had dropped a few degrees from the intensity of his emotions alone. "I-It was-" Before the king could spill the mastermind who had instructed him so far, a strange tattoo on the back of his neck began spreading at an unnatural speed.
