Volume 11: Chapter 7 – Whispers

That youth known as Ke Er lan Di felt something and surveyed his surroundings . I didn’t want to find trouble so I used a few short teleportations to enter the city . I didn’t care about them as I wanted to rest . After finding an inn to rest up at and get some food, I lay down on a large comfortable bed and fell into an extremely sound sleep . It was already difficult for me, a lazy person, to rush for an entire day . I wanted to rest up now and some more tomorrow to recover my energy . My skills in meditating by sleeping had been trained for more than a day or two already . My body relaxed after laying down on the bed . I circulated my fusion powers and constantly absorbed the light elements in my surroundings . I rapidly entered a dream state when my body was warm and comfortable .

I  stretched lazily getting out of bed the next morning . Not only had the powers in my body recovered after sleeping, but I felt exceptionally comfortable . I put the hood on to cover up my ugly face as I went to the lounge of the inn to eat in solitude .

The inn’s business was scarce as there were only a few tables filled with patrons .

I suddenly heard someone from behind me whispering while I ate . They seemed to be a couple from their voices .

The guy said, “Lan Lan, I heard that when our kingdom’s Marshall Feng Hao returned to the city, he asked His Majesty to resign from his position . Marshall Feng Hao has been working hard for all these years, even if he doesn’t have many contributions . Moreover, he’s the one who knows the most about the frontline . His resignation is such a shame . ”

The girl sounded very gentle . She seemed to be a gentle and tender girl as she said, “En! I feel that Marshall Feng Hao has been treated unjustly . Actually, the one that suddenly changed his stance must be His Majesty, while Marshall Feng Hao became the scapegoat . I also heard that the Emperor of the Kingdom of Aixia has already abdicated his claim to the throne due to this matter . ”

The guy replied, “Who told them to offend God’s Envoys? The negotiation with the Demon-Beast alliance is really a good thing because we can avoid loss of lives . However, I just feel that those God’s Envoys aren’t any good . They constantly say that the Monster race is emerging and made the various kingdoms to prepare to resist them . It’s still unknown whether it’s true or not . Anyway, I’ve never heard about the Monster race . It might just be something thee God’s Envoys fabricated to scare us . ”

The girl said, “That’s enough, you shouldn’t continue to comment on them . Currently, there’s a lot of God’s Envoy believers . If they were to hear what you said, they would fight you with all their might . I’ve heard from the rumours that the leader of the God’s Envoys is an extremely ugly mage . He’s originally from the Kingdom of Aixia, but he was arrested for some various reasons .  He suddenly disappeared after that . He became God’s Envoy after reappearing . ”

I inwardly smiled wryly after hearing their conversation . It seemed that the people thoughts on the current situation were quite hopeful . I didn’t mind their words as once the Monster race appeared, more carnage will occur . Shedding blood would be a wake up call for any non-believing humans .

My good appetite vanished as I shook my head after listening . Humans would definitely not trust me just from my words . I also couldn’t stand in the streets warning people, telling everybody that I know how scary the Monster King is . If I were to do that, I would probably be arrested for being a mad man .

I walked out of the inn with a slightly melancholic after settling the bill . The weather today wasn’t good . It was drizzling and was filled with dark clouds . I took in a mouthful of cold air while I walked in the rain . What should I do now? I had put in so much effort, but currently, there were still people that didn’t understand my hard work . Even though the words of two people didn’t mean that everyone thought that way, there would definitely be a group of them that would think that way too . Could it really be that they would only understand after people died? A feeling of depression filled my heart . I felt so helpless this time .

“What are you thinking about brother?” A clear voice sounded from my side . I didn’t need to see that I was the one he was talking to as I could feel his gaze on my back . I said calmly, “Are you talking to me? I don’t think we know each other . ” I knew that person’s power was near the Radiant Knight’s rank, judging from the aura I felt from that person .

“Perhaps, but with brother’s profound magic, it’s really a pity not to join the army . ”

I was startled as I turned around and looked at that person .  Ah! He was unexpectedly the one that was leading the cavalry into the city yesterday, Commander Ke Er Lan Di . He was still wearing a silver armor and had a long sword at his waist, looking at me with interest .

I lowered my voice . “How did you know my magic is profound?”

Ke Er Lan Di replied, “You told me yourself!”

I replied, stunned, “Me?”

Ke Er Lan Di nodded . “I’ve never seen a mage like you before . You can just stand in the rain and not get wet without chanting . Anyone that sees what is happening now will jump in shock . You should be at least at a Magic Scholar’s level from my judgement . ”

I looked upwards after hearing what he said . As expected, the rain that would have landed on me automatically moved three inches away, leaving me completely dry . However, he was wrong to think that I was a Magic Scholar, currently my magic power might be beyond that of the continent’s first Magister, Teacher Zhen .

Ke Er Lan Di replied, “If brother doesn’t want to shock the bystanders, you should come over here . ” Upon saying that, he pointed to his side . He was standing at the entrance of the inn that I just left . The downpour from the inn’s roof was like a barrier separating us .

I looked in my surroundings . There weren’t many people around due to the rain, for now no one would pay attention to me . I didn’t know what purpose Ke Er Lan Di had, but still walked over to him . I asked indifferently, “May I ask what you wished to discuss?”

Ke Er Lan Di looked unflustered with a faint smile on his face . “I just saw that brother was standing in the streets despondently, so I thought that you might have some matters that aren’t going too well for you . I don’t know what’s wrong, but maybe I can help?”
