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.
"Hey, what are you doing!?" Watching Luke charge in the direction of the city right at the moment when the sudden burst had occurred, Lin Ju had her jaw dropped open wide as she saw someone as reckless as Luke. 'Does he have a death wish? What is he trying to do, going in there?'No matter how she looked at it, it was like an ant running towards the battlefield between two giants. Either the ant had gone nuts or it was suicidal, there was no explanation for what it wanted to do by dashing in like an idiot. 'Well, if he wants to die that bad, so be it.' Pondered Lin Ju while she turned her attention back to the centre of the city, which had a gigantic crater in the middle. As if some unfathomable being had stomped to it. Continuing watching the stars battle with her strengthened vision, Lin Ju had to admit that it was very frightening even from afar. 'What's happening in there? And... What's this feeling...' She could faintly feel the powerful shock wave of two energies clashing wi
"Sh*t."Mumbling a curse, Luke frowned in contemplation as he hadn't thought this through. Before he knew it, he had found out that he was running in the direction of the city without any idea or plan in his mind. "Are you kidding me…" Although he was still a distance away from the city, he could already tell how powerful the aftereffects of the blasts from the fight were. Even though the two beings moved so fast that his eyes couldn't catch up, he had realized that neither of them had left the area of the crater and were still stuck around in there. As if there was some invisible parameter making them unable to leave. 'Or someone instead of something.' Guessed Luke while he clenched both of his fists, feeling powerless at the moment. 'I should try evacuating all the citizens… a pathway for them to teleport from there to here without any hurdles.' Easier said than done, that kind of plan would need tons of preparation. Not to mention he had nothing notable on him, the energy to su
