Hui Chen looked at her like he was uncertain of what just had happened even he had seen her rage before. “Take the bodies and throw them inside this burning building, we cannot leave them here or they might track us” Hui Wen said with a calm voice and started to remove the first while Jun Chen handle the rest as they knew without saying it that they needed a guard. The smoke got thicker and thicker, making the it like walking at night with the flames from the houses lighting up the place like torches. Suddenly a horse is heard and by a quick movement and pure luck they manage to get out of its path without getting noticed as the ridder continues down the street and soon out of sight. “That was close” Hui Wen says as they reappear. “Guess we better walk near the houses to be safe even that heat from the burning houses might be unbearable” He continued before Ling Chang broke in. “What about the mason and my teacher?” It flew out of her mouth, making both Jun Chen and Hui Wen look at her with serious eyes before they turned defeated and they one by one turned back at her. “Did I say something wrong?” Ling Chang continued as she was not sure what was going on but the two men continued to walk like she were not there before it suddenly hit her what was going on and again the words flew out of her mouth. “We have to save them” and even that the words came fast, her mind was made up on it. Hui Wen turned around against her and his eyes was as defeated as before and with a almost silence voice he replied “We have already walked past their homes, you might not have recognised it because of the flames coming from them so I am sorry but we are too late” Ling Chang could feel sadness trying to control her like when she had to leave her mother at home but she wanted to show Hui Wen, she had become strong doing the time they had been in the town so she kept her actions as normal as possible but Jun Chen continued. “I can see right thought you, so no need to act up… I am sorry that we did not get there in time but lets us focus on saving Jiang Chen” Ling Chang did not know what to say so she just nodded without changing her facial expressions.
I feel great today after yesterday were I finished another chapter in more novel and guess I am slowly feeling more and more ready to add my ideas for a sequel to this pages because I feel like nothing much will change in the remaining chapter but who knows. After the first part of chapter 10 today I am now finished with the first version of the book 25. September.
Thanks to everyone who have helped me get this far 🙂
See you soon, thanks for following and have a nice day.
As the sun started to raise over the town, it had already become clear for Ling Chang and the others that something was very wrong in the town. Screams was heard everywhere while fire and smoke made it almost impossible to see anything. Ling Chang walked between the two men who had formed like a shield around her as they had no idea of when they would run into some enemy soldiers as it was no longer a chance of if they were found. Every time a scream or a dead body appeared it gave a set in Ling Chang who really had to focus herself not to scream back and blow their cover. “Are we soon at the palace?” Ling Chang whispered to Hui Wen who was in front but even after a while no answer had returned, making Ling Chang pull his cloches which made him turn around and the mix of smoke and seriousness made him look very angry. “What?” he yelled whispering and Ling Chang wished she had not disrupted him but replied “When are we there?” calmly. Hui Wen looked at her before a sudden scream not farm from them, made him push himself against the wall of the burning house, making Ling Chang and Jun Chen followed his movements just in time. In the next three soldier walked past with a death woman hanging in between their arms and only a quick arm from Jun Chen prevented Ling Chang from screaming, letting the men pass in peace at first but Ling Chang felt the rage inside her and before Jun Chen had a chance to hold her back, she had already stepped out in the middle of the road away form the safety of the smoke. “Stop” she yelled while pointed her sword against the soldiers who stopped as told before turning around laughing. “Look a woman, playing with a sword” one of the soldier said while laughing and another replied “Maybe it is her sister” and threw the remains of the death woman against Ling Chang who landed with the face looking directly at her with her bare eye socket. Ling Chang could feel her rage grow inside and the three men walked closer while one of the tried to get a hold on her but in a second Ling Chang moved and the man were now screaming of pain, making the two remaining pulling their swords and attack but Ling Chang was not done. In the next she killed the screaming man, blocked the attacks from the others and killing them too. Jun Chen and Hui Wen stood speechless as Ling Chang cleaned her sword of the blood before Jun Chen walked slow over to her. “Are you alright?” He whispered gentle and Ling Chang looked him and smiled while the rage inside her disappeared quickly before replying “Yes”. Hui Wen also came out form the smoke but he was far from calm and yelled “You have maybe ruined our one chance of saving Jiang Chen and make it out of this town alive” He wanted to yell more but he could see that Ling Chang was close to burst into tears. He took a deep breath and returned to his normal calm self and continued “Sorry, I did not mean that, I just got worried for you… That is all” Ling Chang looked at him with shiny eyes and did not reply but returned her sword to its place by her side.
Today I have finished chapter 9 and because of the length of it I have reach 50.000 words or 51500 words to be precise. Feels good to reach so far in a novel and I am glad to share it with you guys. I will add the complete chapter to the places after this post and tomorrow I will start chapter 10 Execution while cannot wait to see when expected finish day is now.
As a side note then I know my spelling is a bit bad a times but will correct it all once I am done the entire book.
See you soon, thanks for following and have a nice day.
The swords flew thought the air like they sometimes did under training but this fight was something different and Ling Chang knew that. The woman stood laughing not far form the fight, which instantly gave Ling Chang an idea even she was busy focusing on Jun Chen. They danced around in the death grass and Ling Chang had to block more than she were used to as she had decided to keep her rage at a minimum as she wanted to be there if she had to kill Jun Chen. “Is that really the best you got?” Jun Chen yelled and even his voice was different form the normal version of him and Ling Chang just looked at him without replying. Instead she attacked him and managed to give him a small cut on the left leg but no scream was heard instead Jun Chen kicked her away like she were nothing and she flew thought the air hitting the tree next to the women.Read More »
