As he slowly made his way up the hill path, Lin Sheng focused on the greenery all around him and felt the fire in his heart weakening somewhat.
As he forged on, the number of people lessened before him.
When he was still half-way through the hill, he could still see a couple of people, and the higher he got, the more deserted it was.
Lin Sheng did not mind that. The quieter the surrounding was, the better he could relax.
Just as he was about to reach the peak, a young lady with a long ponytail in a purple trek suit appeared.
She was looked in her mid-twenties and was calmly making her way up the hill path.
On her hand was an intricate watch, and he could tell, even from afar that the craftsmanship was beyond those hundred buck cheap watches.
He could also tell that her stamina was lacking, and needed to rest every few other steps.
Her face was slightly pale, with fine features on it. Beads of sweat were on her forehead as she panted so every slightly.
Lin Sheng quickly made his way past the girl, and the two exchange a quick glance before he walked by.
Very soon, Lin Sheng disappeared into the thick shrubs in the forest.
The girl stood where she was, and looked at Lin Sheng’s disappearing silhouette before smiling to herself, and continuing her climb.
Not too long ago, she was also climbing the hill with this ease.
On top of the hill was a natural flat rock platform. All around the platform were steep slopes without any vegetation. Looking down, one could see the entirety of Huaisha City.
As the mountain wind blew, Lin Sheng stood on the platform and looked at the city.
From above, the houses in the city below looked like toy blocks, and could easily be crushed with just a stomp.
A moment later, the lady with the long ponytail too had arrived at the summit.
She saw Lin Sheng already occupying the only rock platform and so stood at one of the shorter slopes to look afar and take in the fresh air.
“There’s so few students going hill climbing nowadays…” She murmured to herself.
She had remembered her time as a poor student. It was to train her willpower back then that she would take a day to climb a hill or to swim, just to clear her head.
“Now… trying to take some time to train is so difficult nowadays.” She then looked at Lin Sheng again.
From that man’s trained movements and his well-sculpted figure, he was probably your typical student with a strict sports routine.
She did admire people with strict self-discipline the most.
If she had the chance, she felt that she would not hesitate to give his young man some help.
With her current status, just a mere word from her would be able to alter a normal student’s course of life.
So many years later, as she returned to this little hill filled with memories and nostalgia, the lady felt a faint sense of lamentation and yearning.
Not too far away, Lin Sheng saw the lady resting a little before taking her phone out and sat on the rock to play with her phone. He shook his head.
On the hill summit with such strong cold wind, sitting still to play one’s phone was unwise.
In such a situation, the loss of body heat for a normal person would be exacerbated, because without any movement, body heat would not be replenished, resulting in someone catching a cold more easily.
However, that was the lady’s problem and not his, and he would not actively remind someone of that.
After a short rest, Lin Sheng did not linger and got ready to descend the hill.
The climb was just a way for him to unwind. Reaching the summit was the goal, and there was no need to linger. This climb allowed him to relax quite a bit and he planned to come here to chill out next time.
As he got down the platform and walked passed the lady, he noticed that her nose was running…
The cold wind was blowing hard, and that made her face numb to the point that she did not even notice it.
Seeing the snot drooping down and getting blown by the wind into a huge “U” on her face. Lin Sheng could not help but pull two serviettes out of his pocket and hand it to her.
The lady looked up at Lin Sheng as he handed her serviettes in surprise.
A gust blew and a clear line of snot was blown away, leaving a half a meter long strand.
“Yeah.” Lin Sheng dangled the serviettes in his hand, and stared at her.
She followed his gaze and touched her nose. Her face exploded in red at a very perceptible speed.
And even the cold mountain wind could not stop that sort of exaggerated reddening of her face.
“Thank you…” The lady took the serviettes from him and quickly turned around to wipe her face.
After cleaning up, she turned over and saw Lin Sheng’s figure descending the mountain. His silhouette was already blurry by then, and seemed like he was about to blend into the woods.
“Sh*t…” She could not describe her current emotions.
In her usual attempt to keep up the pristine image of a “lady”, she would even hold in her fart before finding an area without anyone to release it. She would even pat her skirt hard to get rid of the smell. She had never used the toilet in the office and held everything in until she got home.
Now… it was entirely gone…
Her pristine image…
The moment she thought of the time she was caught by someone with snot all over her face, the cold wind did not even matter anymore…
“Argh!! I’m going mad!”
She could not help but to hide her face. The only thing she was glad that, the young man had no idea of her identity.
The sky was turning dark as Lin Sheng slowly walked down from the viaduct. Cars upon cars sped past him, kicking up a draft of cold air. Yet it did not faze him, and it felt more like a cool wind in summer, refreshing.
As he walked past a clothes boutique, he saw his reflection on the display glass.
His eyes were bloodshot, and his skin color had darkened a few notches, while his frame increased a little.
This was the natural outcome after fusing with the Crag Dragon’s bloodline.
And in fact, if someone were to monitor him closely now, they could see that his eyes now had the dragon-like golden slit irises.
Lin Sheng slowly walked pass a small bungalow that had a dog.
Behind the steel gate was a golden retriever, half the size of a man barking at him.
Lin Sheng looked at the dog.
The dog shuddered as if it was electrocuted as a puddle of yellow liquid formed behind it before it ran away.
“It got scared till it pissed itself?” Lin Sheng was speechless.
Was it the Crag Dragon’s bloodline? That a simple gaze could scare a guard dog to the point it pissed itself?
Lin Sheng then slowly strolled on.
He did not dare to go home now. He had to wait until he had totally mastered this fusion so that he could hide his current form and return to normal, or else his current change would definitely scare everyone at home.
