Chapter 271: Training II: Part 2
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Among the shrubs in the distance, dandelions the size of footballs flew about as they were carried by the wind, their pollen falling all over as they went.
Even further, a massive tree branch stood out like an arm, and on it was a noose, with a dead striped cat in it.
The cat was about the size of a hunting dog, its tongue dangled out as its dark black eyes popped out like a toad.
The butterfly pixie was still blabbering, and Lin Sheng felt his head cracking by the cacophony.
He looked at the pixie and asked a few questions, yet the latter seemed to be content to speak to its own tune, and totally ignoring him.
Those eyes that curved upwards made it look like it was wearing a sinister smile.
Lin Sheng slapped the pixie on the head and it was sent flying by the massive force and smashed against a massive tree trunk, its head popped like squashed persimmon.
The pixie’s brain matter stuck onto the tree and its headless body flopped down onto the ground.
Its corpse then turned into black ash before disappearing.
“No soul fragments?” Lin Sheng was surprised, but that did not matter as silence returned to the entire area, just as he wanted.
He then looked up at the dead cat hanging on the tree branch.
“Ah…. To the right, right. Right! There are countless treasures and food there! Everything you could ever want! Hahahaha!!”
The dead cat’s mouth suddenly closed as it let out a bizarre and ominous chatter, not unlike a maddened crone as it started at Lin Sheng maliciously.
Using the tip of his leg, Lin Sheng launched a piece of rock square at the dead cat’s mouth.
The fist-sized rock immediately smashed half-dead cat’s head into bits., and silence returned to the area again.
Earlier, when the dead cat spoke, Lin Sheng could feel a nauseating sensation welling within him. And it seemed that the former’s voice had a side-effect on him.
So he decided to kill it.
With half its head missing, the dead cat could no longer be held by the noose and fell limply onto the ground.
Lin Sheng went over and stomped the remains into a pile of mushy paste. There was no black lines, and quiet reigned.
Lin Sheng stepped forward and around the dead cat as he stepped deeper into the forest.
Not even a few steps later, a massive black-feathered bird came from the sky and landed on him.
It opened its mouth as if wanting to speak, but its massive frame suddenly shuddered and it stopped.
“You?!” Lin Sheng opened his mouth to speak, but just as he got the first word out, the entire area around him shook.
*Knock, knock, knock.*
Lin Sheng opened his eyes, he was still lying on the bed, and he took a deep breath in as he heard the voice from the door.
“Mr. Lin, it is already nine o’clock.” A sharp, young voice rang out from outside.
“Okay…” Lin Sheng got up and massaged his head.
It was him who had requested his Unseen Servant to wake him up at this hour. He never expected to enter the dream in the latter half of the night.
Having not been into the dream for a while now, the new place slightly intrigued him.”
“Right, so have the apprentices started their class already?” he asked.
“Yes, sir. About an hour ago,” the Unseen Servant answered.
Lin Sheng quickly got out of the bed. He had to find a way to increase his physical strength tonight. He believed that with the dark power’s development so far, there should be some techniques to go about.
Mylissa crashed heavily against a small figure. She did not restrain, and could not restrain her strength as she sent the latter flying against the wall.
The small figure let out a painful groan.
“Don’t you have eyes?!” Mylissa yelled. It was not her fault, the latter had suddenly rushed out from the left side and ran into her.
“I… I’m…sorry…” The small figure got up with much difficulty, and from her appearance, she was a young girl with hemp brown hair and wounds on her face.
She limped a few steps forward as she tried to walk, but before she could even steady herself, rushed footfalls were heard from the other end of the alley.
“Over here! Faster!” A man growled.
The tiny girl’s expression changed as she ran.
A piece of the wall chipped as a bullet impacted against it. And the bullet hit just right above where the girl and Mylissa stood.
Mylissa was stunned for a moment, as she looked at the bullet mark that was barely an inch away from here, her face reddened immediately.
“You bastards!! Could you not see there are people here??!”
She roared in furiously, and the reply that came was a shower of bullets.
*Bam, bam, bam!!*
A shower of bullets impacted at the location Mylissa was standing. She simply took a step to the side and avoided all of the shots.
“Damn it! You lot actually dare to shoot at me!!”
While she was an apprentice Darksider, against a normal person, she still held powers unimaginable.
Mylissa raised her hand as her right palm lit up.
A cluster of emerald orbs suddenly appeared and transformed into compact threads and blasted out towards the other end of the alley. And soon after, cries of pain and agony rang out.
As the sound of gunfire rang out, Mylissa retracted the dark power threads and walked out of the alley in big strides.
She was already going to be late for class, and now to get shot along the way. While gun crime rates in Miga was high, and there were cases of shooting every now and then, the fact that her assailants had not paid much thought as they shot at her angered Mylissa.
Outside the alley, five adults lay prone on the ground. All of them were in plainclothes. Each of them had a handgun in their hands, and all five were hit, as they lay on the ground wordlessly, and could only look at Mylissa with pale faces.
“Since you guys dared to drag me into this, you better be ready to pay the price,” Mylissa growled.
Behind her, a cowering figure slowly appeared. It was the skinny girl who had crashed into her earlier.
“You too!” Mylissa turned over and glared at the girl. “So tell me, how are you going to repay me?!”
The skinny girl was wearing a school uniform, with faint fluctuations of dark powers on her. She was clearly not an ordinary person.
However, her aura was very weak, much, much weaker than Mylissa’s as if it was non-existent.
“An… ace??” Only then did the skinny girl realized the Silver Fortress insignia on Mylissa’s left arm.
Among the students, anyone with a silver insignia meant that they were ace students, the crème of the crop. That was because the silver insignia is a mark of the top workshops and professors of the university.
