Lin Sheng’s elbow hit a board as he rolled on the ground,
The board was smashed into pieces, while his elbow bled from being all scratched up.
Under normal circumstances, he may have cried out in pain, but now he did not even have time to breathe.
A mass of black lines smashed madly into the window frames and dashed toward him.
The black lines were spinning and dancing along the way. Everything the inky wires touched would quickly be dyed black and disintegrate. They would turn into black powder and melt into the black “wires”.
Lin Sheng dashed all the way to the gate of Blackfeather City!
Behind him, the black lines were thudding wildly along the gravel on the street.
Wherever they went, stone or road were all crushed into black powder in an instant, integrating into the wires.
Lin Sheng rushed toward the gate, glanced back, and fell to the ground in shock.
A great mass of black lines dropped down behind him, piercing the ground.
If he had not rolled on the ground, he would have been pierced into a hornet’s hive by now.
Lin Sheng got up and ran out of Blackfeather City without wasting any time.
At his rear, the great mass of black lines kept circling in the air, but they did not move beyond the gate at all.
The black lines then slowly retracted, darting back into the house.
In an instant, everything was calm again.
Lin Sheng sat in the middle of the road outside the city, sweating and panting.
He could feel his vision beginning to blur and that he was about to wake up.
He had failed to explore Blackfeather City.
Blackfeather City, which seemed dead and calm, was indescribably dangerous.
“Next time, I’ll have to find a chance… I don’t believe this…” Lin Sheng sat on the ground, clenching his teeth.
There were so many holes all around Blackfeather City. He did not believe that he could not find a safer way in.
Even at the risk of his own life, he had to find the Valent Sanctum and get the Limit Breaker.
However, his field of vision gradually blurred.
The alarm clock on his bedside table beeped nonstop.
Lin Sheng opened his eyes and sat up on his bed. He gently exhaled and tossed his blanket aside.
It was already bright outside, and the clock read nine o’clock sharp.
“It was a failure… But this is just the beginning…”
He rolled out of bed, took off his pajamas, and put on his clothes.
Then, he brushed his messy hair in front of the mirror to make himself look good.
Finally, he pulled the sword he had borrowed from the club out of his closet, carried it on his back, and exited the bedroom.
The long sword was kept in a black case, which Shayeen had sponsored. It looked like an ordinary violin case.
As soon as Lin Sheng walked out of his room, he heard a voice coming from the living room. It sounded like a girl reciting something in a foreign language.
He paused and entered the living room.
A girl in a white shirt and a knee-length red checkered skirt was sitting on the sofa. She was about fifteen or sixteen years old with short hair.
The girl’s skin was fair like snow in the morning light.
“Good morning!” Seeing Lin Sheng enter the living room, the girl quickly stood up and gave him a sweet smile.
“Xiao Xi? When did you get here? Have you had your breakfast?”
Lin Sheng was a little surprised.
The girl’s name An Xi, but his family called her Xiao Xi. She was his cousin, the daughter of his aunt. They lived near each other, so she would visit occasionally.
He was quite familiar with An Xi, but their relationship was just so-so.
“Yes, my mom made some hot sauce and asked me to send some to your parents. But I forgot to bring my keys…” An Xi said with an embarrassed smile
“So diligent…” Lin Sheng looked at the textbook in her hand.
The book was as long as a thick magazine with an old cover. It had obviously been flipped through many times.
“Where are you going? Aunt and uncle went to work, and they asked me to eat with you later.” An Xi hurriedly asked when she noticed that Lin Sheng was carrying a long black case.
“I’ll be back in a moment. You just stay at home and study.” Lin Sheng could not tell her that he was going to the club to coach swordsmanship.
He had made too much progress in the club and went straight to coaching. It did not make sense to reach such a level of swordsmanship without a long period of practice.
Besides, his family knew that he could not have been practicing the sword for a long time.
Hence, Lin Sheng chose to hide it.
“Are you going to the cyber cafe?”
Lin Sheng was speechless. “Well, I’m going now. Take care of the house.”
“Okay…” An Xi nodded.
Carrying the sword case, Lin Sheng put on his shoes, took a thermos and towel, then opened the door and left.
An Xi quietly watched as Lin Sheng closed the door. She then heard the echo of him walking down the stairs.
Sitting on the sofa, she decided to carry on memorizing the words in her book.
Suddenly, she saw the money left by her aunt on the table.
“He forgot to take the money.” She did not think much and quickly grabbed the money before she ran to the balcony, wanting to call him back.
That was when she spotted Lin Sheng at the gate.
Unexpectedly, a young girl wearing sunglasses approached him, and the two began to talk.
The girl was fashionably dressed as well as in good shape, and behind her were two tall, sturdy men.
They then got on a bus together and left.
Curiosity flickered in An Xi’s eyes.
According to her knowledge about her cousin, there was nothing special about him, and he had no advantages in terms of appearance or height.
His academic performance was not really good too. Basically, he had a low sense of existence. Perhaps, the only plus point was that he had a fair complexion.
At first, her impression of him was just that of an ordinary person, but now it seemed that… It seemed that he had some secret social circle.
That girl had a hot body. Although she was wearing sunglasses, she certainly looked good. The clothes she was wearing were quite expensive, highlighting her exquisite figure.
That girl’s family background had to be very different from her cousin’s. How did he come to know her?
“He’s not as honest as I thought…” An Xi was now a little curious about Lin Sheng.
