Chapter 345 - 345: Wrong Place At The Wrong Time
"Now that I've thanked you, it's time for me to kill you. Even though you helped me, I can't let you live. Sorry kid. Tough luck," The girl said as her smile widened. She once again brought her knife out as she stood just 2 meters away from Long Chen.
"Sigh, I'm not your enemy. Why do you want to kill me? I even helped you?" Long Chen let out as he looked at the girl.
"I have my reasons. Just think of it as you being in the wrong place at the wrong time," The girl said with a grin as she threw a knife towards Long Chen's chest.
Long Chen didn't even have the time to react as the knife reached him, but it passed through his body.
She hasn't realized that she had become a target of Long Chen's illusion as well.
Right after killing the guards, Long Chen used his illusion to make her think that he was sitting there, but in reality, he had walked up to the Second Prince who had lost consciousness out of fear.
Without taking his eyes off of the girl, he brought Cati out and sent him back to the Beast Region before he walked up to the door of the treasury.
"I'm sorry, but I'm gonna have to take a rain check on the offer. I don't wish to die yet," Long Chen's voice came from behind.
The girl looked back and found Long Chen standing near the door of the treasury.
"Now if you can come inside the treasury, then you might be able to kill me," Long Chen smilingly said as he used teleport and teleported inside the treasury.
As he had already been inside the treasury once and it was without his 100-meter range, he was able to teleport inside it now.
"You idiot, do you think you can hide inside the treasury?" The girl muttered as she walked up to the body of the king. She cut off the king's hands and placed his palm on the formation to open the treasury.
As soon as the treasury opened, she saw that no one was inside. The treasury was completely empty and not even a single gold coin was left.
"He escaped. Interesting kid," She muttered as she closed the door.
"You owe me your life. I'll collect it when I find you," The girl said as she threw away the hand of the king.
"Hmm? Where am I?" The Second Prince gained consciousness and opened his eyes as he sat up. Unfortunately, he had chosen the wrong time to wake up.
As soon as the words left his mouth, the girl threw a knife towards him which penetrated his forehead. He was killed instantly without even knowing why.
It was at that moment, she heard the sound of footsteps coming towards her.
"Cheh, more pests are coming. Now that the King and their strongest guys are dead, I can kill them without worries," A smirk appeared on her face as she brought more knives out and got ready to battle.
A Spatial Crack appeared inside a city and a person came out of it.
Long Chen had used his skill Spatial Travel to go outside the city, but as soon as he came out, he realized that he was in the wrong place.
He was inside a bathroom and a girl was taking a shower at the moment. Her back was facing him, so she didn't realize that a person had appeared behind her.
'Not again!' Long Chen thought as he started wondering what to do.
The door of the washroom was near the girl.
'Fuck it. It's not like she knows me or something!' Long Chen thought as he walked towards the door.
The girl saw him and a scream escaped from her mouth, but Long Chen didn't wait to explain. He just walked out of the shower and left the room.
The room had a window, from where Long Chen jumped out and landed on the streets.
The girl left her washroom as she screamed. She had covered her body by now.
Long Chen brought the Sun Destroying Condor out of Beast Region.
"Time to go back," He muttered as he sat on the Sun Destroying Condor and ordered it to begin flying.
The journey this time had been oddly successful. He just learned the skills that he wanted to, he had comprehended the Law of Darkness and he had got all the treasures of the king. He was now as rich as the King of a First Rank Kingdom.
He took the mask off his hand. Although he had the mask, it had stopped working midway as the time had run out. That's why everyone managed to see his face as it didn't even work as a normal mask after its limit was hit.
"Alright. I still have 2 suppression pills so there are still 2 weeks left in my free time, I can easily get back to the sect in this time," Long Chen muttered as he looked at the 2 pills in his storage ring that were given to him by Lang Jing.
He traveled for 1 day before he called out Xun.
"Xun!" Long Chen said as he looked towards the sky.
"Yes, my dear disciple?" Xun said smilingly as she appeared near Long Chen.
"Hah, Who the heck is your disciple. I don't want to take a kid as my master," Long Chen replied as he started laughing.
"I only see one kid here and that's you," Xun said with a smile on her face.
"You girl, If I could touch you, I would show you who the real kid is!" Long Chen let out as he casually moved his hand towards Xun's cheeks.
He thought that his hands would pass through her, but it didn't happen. His hands landed on the cheeks of Xun and he realized that he was able to touch her.
It came as the biggest shock of his life as his mouth opened wide. He couldn't believe what just happened. He felt like he was dreaming.
Previously, he hasn't been able to touch her as she wasn't a real person. She was the spirit of the ancient ring and his guide. This whole thing should have been impossible.
Xun also looked the same. She was also in shock and looked as if she had no clue as to what just happened.
"I can touch you?"
"You can touch me?"
They both exclaimed at the same time in shock.
"Let me test," Xun said with a frown on her face as she moved her jade-like hand towards his cheeks as well and she was able to touch him as well.
"How is that possible? It should not be possible!" She let out with a frown on her face.
"See if you can touch him," Long Chen said to Xun as he glanced at the Sun Destroying Condor.
Xun moved her hand towards the Sun Destroying Condor and tried to touch it, but her hand passed through it.
"I can't touch it," She said.
"So you can only touch me. I have a theory. Can it be because of me learning the Law of Darkness?" Long Chen replied after thinking for a while.
"It should be. Although I know about the law of darkness, my understanding of it is limited as well. It's one of the oldest and one of the most mysterious laws of the universe. I can't claim that anyone in the world knows much about it," she said.
"It doesn't matter how it happened. Now I can show you who's a kid," Long Chen grinned as he reached out his hands towards her cheeks and started pinching it like he was playing with a kid.
"You idiot! Release me this instant," Xun said to Long Chen, but he didn't listen and kept having fun.
"You idiot!" Xun also reacted as she grabbed his nose.
Their playful fighting continued for quite some time as they both asked the other person to release them first.
