The waters near the port of Huaisha.
On a medium-sized warship.
“What?! Go back?!” A bald man stared at his partner in disbelief. “I just found the way here, and the boss wants us to go back?!”
“Xilin gave in, but on the condition that all the offshore warships leave, so we have no work for the time being,” Kamir said calmly.
“It’s that simple?” The bald man could not imagine how much it took to feed the greedy nobles of the country for them to be willing to give such orders.
“It’s that simple.” Kamir did not care. He had merely been on vacation from start to finish, anyway. It was the bald man who had been doing all the work.
“What about the Azurewing we lost…” asked the bald man.
“There will be compensation,” Kamir answered casually. “But, it looks like a temporary move, just a show for other countries.”
“Like Miga.” The bald man suddenly understood.
“Yes. Xilin signed the treaty and agreed to most of the terms. In this period of time, countries are restricting each other. We’ll probably have nothing to do.” Kamir shrugged.
“We’ve been working so hard out there, but one order from the boss and we’re done?” The bald man could not get rid of his anger.
“There’s still a chance in the future.” Kamir patted his partner on the shoulder. “Before we go, shall we obtain the secret skill?”
“No… The blue hair is in Huaisha!” the bald man said, gnashing his teeth.
“Then there’s nothing we can do.” Kamir turned around and went back to his room, leaving only the bald man to stand on the deck and watch the crew adjust the rudder.
They were just passengers, and it was the captain of the ship who could decide whether to leave or not.
“Damn it!” The bald man was left speechless.
Without a large-scale search, it would take a long time and lots of energy to find the hidden masters in Huaisha.
He stood there for a long time before he sighed and gave up.
“Well, at least I’ve left something here. I’ll be back in a few months!”
That was all he could do to comfort himself. Otherwise, his heart would ache at the thought of the Azurewing he had invested in.
The next day.
Xilin and the other five countries signed the Moon Sea Treaty at the same time.
The details of the treaty were unclear, but tensions along coastlines and borders had eased.
Lin Sheng did not have time to care about that.
After he left Snowgale Fortress, his dream had remained stagnant without progress.
In reality, he practiced the holy power and meditated on the Ashen Seal every day.
He also found his shield, sword, and books under the bed in his dream.
Time passed, and soon, his final examination came.
Lin Sheng obtained good marks in the examination. Following that, he and his parents began to prepare for the Chinese New Year.
The school closed two weeks for the winter holidays and the Spring Festival.
The family planned to invite relatives over for dinner, and Lin Sheng’s parents began to prepare for the New Year dinner very early.
Most of Lin Sheng’s time was either spent in his dream, studying Deviltongue, or going to Ironfist Society to check its progress.
Some new martial artists had come to Ironfist Society to explore, and it continued to thrive.
Life seemed to be returning to its original state, calm and peaceful.
Lin Xiao, Lin Sheng’s sister also called back to say that she had bought a train ticket and was on her way home.
Lin Xiao was in college. There were talks that she had a boyfriend, but she did not plan on bringing him home.
The sound of car horns filled the place.
Lin Xiao had just exited the train station, dragging her suitcase. The train arrived early, otherwise, she would have seen Lin Sheng and her dad waiting for her.
Lin Xiao dragged her suitcase and left the station. She was going to walk a little into town and take the bus back.
She wanted to save some money. Her family had been spending a lot recently, and after she fell in love, her personal expenses had grown much higher than before too, so she needed to be careful with her spending.
She reached an intersection, and while she waited at the traffic light, she noticed that her suitcase was not properly closed. So, she squatted down and zipped it up.
When she got up, she heard the sharp sound of brakes behind her. Then, there was a loud bang.
A white car slammed into Lin Xiao, sending her flying. She rolled across the ground before she lay on her back above the concrete, unable to move.
Fresh blood oozed slowly from under Lin Xiao.
The door of the white car opened, and a drunken man got down.
“You’ve hit someone!” A voice came from the car.
“She’s not dead, she’s just hurt, no big deal!” The drunk got back into the car and drove off, zigzagging all over the road.
Lin Xiao was lying on the ground alone. Her shirt was gradually being dyed red with blood, and her black trousers had become dirty. She was feeling cold all over, and the color was fading from her lips.
She tried to straighten herself up, but she could not. She was feeling groggy and nauseous.
The crowd slowly started to gather, but onlookers just stared at her, whispering. No one went up to help her.
Then, a black car rolled by. The people in the car seemed to notice Lin Xiao, and they turned back.
The door opened, and a young man and woman dressed in expensive clothes got out of the car. They quickly walked toward Lin Xiao and squatted down next to her to check on her.
“Was it a car accident? This girl has lost a lot of blood! So many people watching, and no one helping?” the woman yelled angrily.
“A bunch of thrash,” scolded the boy who was standing by the side. He looked young.
“Little Yong, carry her to the car. Let’s go to the hospital!”
They quickly carried Lin Xiao to the car and sped to the nearest hospital.
